Amazon.com Inc. is asking the National Labor Relations Board to consider having workers vote in person — rather than by mail — on a proposal to form a union at an Alabama warehouse.
The company formally requested a postponement of the vote so the labor regulator can reconsider its earlier ruling. Under the current plan, workers will have most of the next two months to vote by mail.

President Joe Biden says he will bring “unity” to America, but he might inadvertently being it to the Middle East instead.
Biden’s staff is reportedly talking to Iran about a U.S. re-entry to the Iran nuclear deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, but with new conditions. The Iranians say no new conditions, so we’ll see who’s most anxious to get the U.S. back in the tent.

Agents of the Federal Protective Services confronted crowds of rioters in Portland, Oregon, again Saturday night, firing rounds of tear gas and non-lethal pepper balls at “anti-Fascist” protesters attacking an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility.
Saturday night marked the fourth night of rioting in Portland, and the fourth night of a federal response — a response that appears to have largely fallen under the radar since the start of the Biden administration. Several times this week, since President Joe Biden’s inauguration, protesters have descended on the Portland ICE facility demanding that inmates being held within be allowed to go free.
MOSCOW (AP) — Russian police arrested more than 3,000 people Saturday in nationwide protests demanding the release of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, the Kremlin’s most prominent foe, according to a group that counts political detentions.
The protests in scores of cities in temperatures as low as minus-50 C (minus-58 F) highlighted how Navalny has built influence far beyond the political and cultural centers of Moscow and St. Petersburg.
In Moscow, an estimated 15,000 demonstrators gathered in and around Pushkin Square in the city center, where clashes with police broke out and demonstrators were roughly dragged off by helmeted riot officers to police buses and detention trucks. Some were beaten with batons.
Navalny’s wife Yulia was among those arrested.
Police eventually pushed demonstrators out of the square. Thousands then regrouped along a wide boulevard about a kilometer (half-mile) away, many of them throwing snowballs at the police before dispersing.
Some later went to protest near the jail where Navalny is held. Police made an undetermined number of arrests there.
We don’t use the title “President” in the title of stories about Joe Biden because there concerns over election fraud in most of the battleground states that have not, to this date, been resolved. The title of “President” will, until then, be used to refer to Donald J. Trump.
Hope that clears that up!
Biden is again violating his mask mandate by not wearing a mask while in the White House, which is federal property, in a room with other people.
He also was coughing in his hand, which goes against CDC recommendations. pic.twitter.com/eeDFLEqLHo

Does he get the celebration exception here too?
Biden has been repeatedly told, including by left-wing CNN, not to cough in his hands. https://t.co/HlPTxzLy69

Sorry. Video is back.
The Justice Department revealed new charges against a Texas man who allegedly participated in the Capitol attack and posted online death threats against Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a US Capitol Police officer.
Garret Miller of Texas faces five criminal charges stemming from the Capitol insurrection, including trespassing offenses and making death threats. Miller allegedly tweeted, “assassinate AOC,” according to court documents.
He also said the police officer who fatally shot a Trump supporter during the attack “deserves to die” and won’t “survive long” because it’s “huntin[g] season.”
A U.S. doctor who is part of the World Health Organization team investigating the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic discussed his work manipulating bat-based coronaviruses in labs just weeks before the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan.
Dr. Peter Daszak, a close associate with China’s premier bat-based coronavirus researcher and a key figure in directing taxpayer funds to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, explained how easy it was to alter coronaviruses during a podcast interview filmed Dec. 9, 2019.
Just learn to code, right?
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — President Joe Biden’s 60-day moratorium on new oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits is prompting widespread concerns in New Mexico, where spending on education and other public programs hinges on the industry’s success.
Top Republicans in the state as well as local leaders in communities that border the Permian Basin — one of the most productive regions in the U.S. — say any moves to make permanent the suspension would be economically devastating for the state. Half of New Mexico’s production happens on federal land and amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars in royalties each year.
Congressional members from other western states also are raising concerns, saying the ripple effects of the moratorium will hurt small businesses already struggling because of the pandemic.
Why not wear their COVID diapers’ at the olympics? It’s fun and fashionable!
Via NY Post:
The International Olympic Committee says it plans to vaccinate every athlete set to participate in the summer games scheduled to be held in Tokyo.
The IOC is working in conjunction with the World Health Organization to help arrange for vaccines for more than 11,000 athletes in countries that have not yet begun to vaccinate against the coronavirus, according to a Reuters report.
Japanese officials said last week that they plan to host the games starting in July, and have set what many believe is an ambitious task to vaccinate all of its 127 million citizens before then. Government officials have said they want to start the COVID-19 vaccinations next month.
Federal law enforcement officials are privately debating whether they should decline to charge some of the individuals who stormed the U.S. Capitol this month — a politically loaded proposition but one alert to the practical concern that hundreds of such cases could swamp the local courthouse.
The internal discussions are in their early stages, and no decisions have been reached about whether to forgo charging some of those who illegally entered the Capitol on Jan. 6, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions.
