Man, the #76ers, I dunno! How can a one-seed be so bad. Their best player was only two…turnovers(!) away from a triple double and their second-best guy has to ride the bench down the stretch. Yikes! #Hawks a good story tho. Go Trae go! #ATLvsPHI

#Jazz are playing some epically bad defense. This is a historic collapse! 35 point swing in 20 minutes! #Clippers #NBAPlayoffs

It seems wrong that the Sixers and Hawks both can’t lose this series…actually maybe all four Eastern Conf teams should call it a year! 🥴🏀#NBA

Just 10 years ago, per-capita personal income in Connecticut was 15 percent higher than Massachusetts. Today it's a dead heat, meaning MA will soon overtake CT as the wealthiest state in the US.

Watch: Andrew Yang’s response to a question about how he would handle mental health during Wednesday's NYC mayoral debate drew fire on social media from people who said it lacked empathy or understanding. https://nyti.ms/35K92tv

Reporter Jon Lender indicated approximately 1,300 executive-branch managers will receive 2% raises when FY 2021-22 begins July 1. Many of these managers already have annual salaries in excess of $100,000, according to Mr. Lender.

Productivity in the construction industry is 25% lower today than it was in 1975.

45 years of getting worse at building things.

Why aren’t we treating this like a national crisis?? https://twitter.com/Jesse_Livermore/status/1405307071264874498

Embarrassing #Sixers! 1-seed at home in game 6, led by 26 pts, shot 45% from trey vs. #Hawks 35%…and going to lose. Trae Young amazing tho.

New @TaxFoundation analysis of President Biden’s FY 2022 Budget Proposals: When combining the economic impact of the President's tax proposals with the benefit of infrastructure spending, long-run GDP falls by 0.9% and American incomes (GNP) by 1%. https://taxfoundation.org/biden-budget-proposals/

The #Yankees have been by far the worst baserunning team in #MLB, with -13.1 runs above avrg compared to -8.6 for the #Mets. Urshela and Stanton by themselves have combined for -7.6 runs, which would make them equal to the third-worst baserunning team on their own. Not good!

Implementer appoints an election monitor for #Bridgeport until the end of 2022 "to detect and prevent irregularity and impropriety in the management of election administration procedures"

Here’s the key table from @PHE_uk new report on vaccine efficacy against hospitalisation with Delta variant:

After 1 dose
• Pfizer: 94% effective
• AstraZeneca: 71% effective

After 2 doses
• Pfizer: 96%
• AstraZeneca: 92%

Why don't people talk more (at all?) about lowering the height of the pitcher's mound to address lack of balls in play in #MLB? It's been changed before and it's less radical than moving the mound back and other proposed changes.

In 2019, while homelessness increased by 16% in Los Angeles and 30% in San Francisco, it went down in San Diego. What did San Diego do that worked?

Here’s the key: the city focused on both the dignity of homeless individuals *and* citizens’ rights to safe, clean public spaces.

Idk what a meniscus is, but if @JoelEmbiid can tear his and still play like he has this series, then it sure doesn’t seem like a necessary body part. 🦵🏽🦵🏽🦵🏽 #nba #PhilaUnite @NBAonTNT

Per Politico's new poll, Eric Adams does better with low-income, non-college-educated New Yorkers than with highly-educated, higher income ones. The reverse is true of Garcia and Wiley.

The legislative session is over, but it did exactly nothing to fix two crises in CT:

1) 8.1% unemployment rate (5th-worst in the nation)
2) 25% annual increase in homicides

Both afflict our low-income citizens worst of all, yet @CTDems pat themselves on the back. Job well done.

Red State unemployment much lower than Blue State. Public Policies should reward work, not compete with it! Read my latest report @IWF here: https://www.iwf.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/policy-focus-public-policies-should-reward-work-not-compete-with-it.pdf

Shaq and Charles Barkley arguing about whether they’d prefer to be winning at half time or not. Love these guys. #NBAonTNT

@KevinReuning @mattyglesias @DeanBaker13 Progressive taxation underperforming Biden by 12 percentage points in Illinois not paint a particularly rosy outlook with respect to the political feasibility of approaching Western European levels of taxation

We’re in a productivity boom. Pandemic and labor shortages incent businesses to digitize faster, sustaining gdp and wages while employment lags. https://www.wsj.com/articles/technology-fills-the-gap-as-jobs-lag-gdp-11623250495

It gets worse.

As recently as 2020, Ellie Kemper gave money to a political organization that was historically dedicated to the preservation segregation *and* slavery.

Tax? Fee? Democrats insist on calling their $90 million mileage tax on trucks a “fee”.

No matter what you call it, it’s all money coming out of your wallet.

This “fee” is estimated to increase your annual grocery bill by $500.

On the delta variant (B.1.617.2) in the UK: confirming the remarkable protection from vaccines
Of 126 people admitted to the hospital, 83 were unvaccinated, 28 had 1 dose, and only 3 had 2 doses
@SebastianEPayne
This would calculate to ~95% effectiveness

This analysis by @MarcoRubio on why Hispanics are abandoning the Democratic Party is spot on. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2021/05/28/rubio_scott_see_hispanics_as_key_to_gops_resurgence_145845.html

Peru faces a BIG presidential election Sunday. It’s market-oriented economy is at stake. If Marxist Pedro Castillo wins, a catastrophic revolution will begin & Peru’s poverty rate decline will be reversed.
@VasquezIan of @CatoInstitute tells the story:

In its first full month without Indian Point, New York's carbon emissions from in-state electricity generation rose 35 percent over pre-shut down. Increase in carbon intensity is even more dramatic.

It's worth pointing out that we are about 1.8 million jobs short of where CBO said employment would be now assuming in it's Feb21 forecast that assumed no American Rescue Plan

Finally, a majority (56%) for normal life.

2020 was the worst year for traffic deaths since 2007. This despite far less driving due to the pandemic.

NHTSA estimates that 38,680 people died in motor vehicle crashes last year.
