His episode on sauces will answer your questions. As everyone Food knows, Thanksgiving isreally concerning the gravy.

“There is also lesser stand-by time for the food earlier than it is served to your pet so vitamins which are misplaced via light or air-exposure are better preserved. If you might be also going to gauge by the look and texture of selfmade versus commercially bought pet food, you will discover the distinction – industrial dog food does not resemble any regular food at all. Homemade dog food does not comprise preservatives.

Coronavirus policies should be informed by ‘the numbers’: USAFacts Founder Steve Ballmer

A spike in novel coronavirus cases in recent days across major U.S. states like Florida and Texas caused their governors to partially reverse their reopening plans, just days after President Donald Trump falsely asserted the uptick had resulted from increased testing and said officials should “slow the testing down.”

In a newly released interview, taped on May 28, Los Angeles Clippers Chairman and former Microsoft (MSFT) CEO Steve Ballmer said that data should inform policy decisions that aim to combat the coronavirus crisis, but noted that “reasonable people can make different choices” about managing the pandemic.

“These things essentially are judgments — tough judgments — between death and misery,” Ballmer told Yahoo Finance. “Misery when people lose jobs and are hard hit financially and death obviously from the disease.”

In 2017, Ballmer founded USAFacts, a nonprofit organization that curates and distributes publicly available government data. The group launched

Increasing number of Republican states projected to see a spike in coronavirus deaths

According to a Yahoo Finance analysis of the University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s (IHME) coronavirus death toll model, there is an increasing number of Republican states that are projected to have the highest increases in COVID-19-related deaths.

A previous analysis of the death toll projections for all 50 states and Washington, D.C. found that eight of the top 10 states with the greatest estimated death increases had Republican governors. That figure has now been increased to nine. 

What’s more, the analysis found that Republicans govern roughly 70% of the states in the country with the highest increases in death projections.

Yahoo Finance looked at the current death toll projections through October 1, and compared them with the number of recorded deaths in May. For consistency, the analysis uses IHME figures for all data. 

The top state on the list is Texas, leaping up from its previous

More coronavirus cases shouldn’t stop reopening, but ‘wash the hell out of your hands for God’s sake’

Louisiana appears set to face a double whammy of coronavirus outbreaks.

At the beginning of April, as many of its neighbors reported relatively low caseloads, New Orleans and the surrounding areas saw a spike including over 2,700 new cases on April 2 alone.

Now, Louisiana is seeing another surge, though smaller for now. The state reported 1,300 new cases on June 23, while looking at neighbors like Texas and Arkansas which are setting record highs daily.

As of June 25, the state had 52,477 cases in total. “That’s 52- or 53,000 cases too many, of course, but we are a state of 4.6 million people,” said Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) in an interview with Yahoo Finance’s On the Move.

“I think once we opened the economy back up, it was predictable we would have additional cases,”

Two researchers hope to use cannabis to ‘temporarily close the doors’ on coronavirus

Canadian researchers Olga and Igor Kovalchuk have been developing and testing novel cannabis strains for years, mostly to examine the strains’ efficacy to combat cancer and inflammation.

Now, they’ve turned their focus to COVID-19, after preclinical research showed their strains might make it more difficult for the virus to enter human cells.

As the pandemic began to unfold, and lockdown orders went into place, Olga Kovalchuk and her husband Igor wondered how their cannabis strains might interact with COVID-19. “Let’s take a look whether or not any of our cannabis extracts affect any of the gene proteins that may be involved in COVID-19 disease,” Kovalchuk recalled asking.

The duo suspected their extracts might affect the ACE2 receptor, a gateway through which the virus enters and threatens human cells. “We looked through the literature and said ‘this looks very similar to SARS [Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome], so it probably enters in
