Covid-19 Deregulation

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “The Donald Trump Administration’s long parade of deregulation—on everything from Title IX, to net neutrality, to environmental-impact statements, to joint employers—is among its biggest achievements. Amid the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, this work has thankfully continued,” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes.

Yesterday, President Donald Trump took another big step with “an executive order telling government agencies to ‘combat the economic consequences of COVID-19 Coronavirus with the same vigor and resourcefulness with which the fight against COVID-19 Coronavirus itself has been waged.’”

NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover discovers information in Rocks about Mars’ cold, icy past

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – By studying the chemical elements on Mars today, including carbon and oxygen, NASA scientists can work backwards to piece together the history of a planet that once had the conditions necessary to support life.

Weaving this story, element by element, from roughly 140 million miles (225 million kilometers) away is a painstaking process. But scientists aren’t the type to be easily deterred. Orbiters and rovers at Mars have confirmed that the planet once had liquid water, thanks to clues that include dry riverbeds, ancient shorelines, and salty surface chemistry.
