Joe Biden’s campaign breathed a sigh of relief Wednesday morning, as the Democratic nominee, in a dramatic turnabout, was able to overtake President Trump in key battleground states that could

Renewed calls for stricter gun controls following a school shooting in Florida that left 17 dead are falling on deaf ears.
Legislators in states across the country have delayed, defeated or refused to take up new measures to prevent more gun violence — despite the impassioned calls of victims from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
In Florida’s legislature, House Republicans blocked a Democratic effort to revive debate on a measure to ban assault weapons with student survivors from Parkland watching in the gallery.
The bill, introduced after the 2016 killings of 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, failed on a party-line vote.
Students from Parkland who have blanketed the media to call for gun reforms have expressed incredulity at the lack of action.
“It seemed almost heartless how they immediately pushed the button to say ‘no,'” Sheryl Acquaroli, a 16-year-old student from Stoneman Douglas, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
Advocates for gun control also ran into opposition in other states.
In Arizona, Republicans blocked a Democratic effort to force debate over whether to ban bump stocks and other modifications to increase weapons’ rate of fire — and instead voted to debate an anti-porn bill.

I have seen the future of the American toilet, my friends, and let me tell you it is spectacular.
Heated seats, remote controls, touchless flushing, night lighted lids…oh my!
I only stopped in the Kohler Design Center Monday afternoon because my niece wanted me to join her and she’s very cute.
Until I walked through those showroom doors, my previous interest in bathroom plumbing only involved toilet paper and whether enough of it remained on the roll. I recently ordered a kitchen faucet because ours broke, and I also once watched the fascinating (and expensive) process of a plumber yanking a Fisher-Price little person out of our tub drain.
That, and potty training four children, pretty much sums up my command of the commode community.
I saw things beyond my imagination (and, I’m sure, beyond, the capabilities of our circa 1931 pipes).
An infinity bathtub fed by a…
