Earth’s tilt explains seasons, more
All the while, Earth’s north pole points towards the north star, which is why that star appears to be in the same spot night after night and the other stars in the northern sky appear to rotate about it. Did you know the degrees of location on our planet affect the rate at which you are rotating on the axis? It is said that this star was the first one to be observed with a telescope during the day. Do not attempt to do star gazing with a telescope in the daytime unless you are an experienced telescope user. The scorpion really does look like a scorpion, with stinger stars at the tail of the S and claws at the head of it.myrgv.com

Queen and Charles to Lend Andrew Millions For Settlement, Which Can Be Paid Back From the Queen’s Will
MIGUEL MEDINA/AFP/GettyImagesThe royals spent several months in the run-up to Prince Andrew settling with Virginia Giuffre insisting that Andrew would have to clear up his own mess and pay his own settlement.So why is it so strangely unsurprising to read allegations in the Sun that Prince Andrew’s settlement is going to be funded with the help of a chunky loan from Charles and the queen after all?Andrew-loans and regular loans are not, of course, always exactly the same thing.

Swiss supreme court details anti-China bias of Sun judge
(AP Photo/Mark Schiefelbein, File)GENEVA – The Swiss supreme court explained Friday why it has ordered a retrial for Olympic swimming champion Sun Yang in a doping case, citing anti-China bias related to killing dogs for food by one of the judges in the case. Hostile social media posts on Twitter by Court of Arbitration for Sport judge Franco Frattini persuaded the federal court he should not have presided over banning the Chinese swimmer. “In his tweets, the arbitrator (Frattini) castigates a Chinese practice of dog slaughter and denounces the consumption of this meat at a local festival in China,” the Swiss court said in a statement. After CAS published its verdict last February, Sun's lawyers appealed to the Swiss supreme court. The 10-hour hearing in Montreux, Switzerland, was a rare CAS case held in open court, at the three-time Olympic champion’s request, and streamed live online.
WADA says Swiss court overturns swimmer Sun's doping ban
At stake in a second CAS hearing would be Yang’s chance to compete at the pandemic-delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics now set for July 2021. The Swiss court ruling appears to have swung on an objection by Sun’s lawyers to the chairman of the three-judge panel, former Italian foreign minister Franco Frattini. It is even possible to overturn a CAS verdict in the federal court and still lose the re-trial. When Canas went to federal court, Swiss judges ruled his right to be heard had been breached and sent back the case. Immediately, Sun said he planned to appeal to the Swiss Federal Tribunal, which is Switzerland’s highest court.

Rita Ora says sorry for lockdown-breaching birthday party
LONDON – British singer Rita Ora apologized Monday for breaking lockdown rules by holding a birthday party, saying it was “a serious and inexcusable error of judgment.”The Sun newspaper ran photos of Ora and others, including models Cara and Poppy Delevingne, arriving at the Casa Cruz restaurant in London’s Notting Hill area on Saturday. Under lockdown rules that end Wednesday, all pubs and restaurants in England must close except for takeout and delivery, and people are barred from meeting indoors with members of other households. Ora, whose hits include “Anywhere” and “I Will Never Let You Down,” said she now realized “how irresponsible these actions were and I take full responsibility.”Reports of the party attracted widespread criticism. Asked about the event, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman, Jamie Davies, said it was “important that everybody in society sets an example by following the rules. That is for every member of the public, including celebrities.”(backslash)Britain has Europe's worst coronavirus death toll, at over 58,000 people.
