CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin explodes on co-host Joe Kernen: '100,000 people died and all you did was try and help your friend the president'
The co-hosts of CNBC's Squawk Box definitely had their coffee this morning. On Wednesday's episode of the business news program, co-hosts Andrew Ross Sorkin and Joe Kernen went head to head over their longstanding perspectives on COVID-19's economic effects. Tensions ran hot as Kernen tried to spin the economy's status in a positive light, and the spat eventually peaked as Sorkin accused Kernen of ignoring the coronavirus' death toll to "try and help your friend the president." Kernen and Sorkin's spat began as they discussed a market rally and what it meant for upcoming financial quarters. "Joe, you missed 100 percent on the way down and you missed 100,000 deaths," Sorkin declared. "Every morning, you try to question the questions that I'm asking," Sorkin continued, saying that being "right or wrong" on the markets "doesn't make people a good person or a bad person, and it doesn't make right to act the way you are." Things calmed down for a split second before Kernen got his take in: "You panicked about the…

No10 defends refusal to review fines given to parents seeking childcare during lockdown
Downing Street has defended its decision to not review fines given to parents travelling for childcare during lockdown after Matt Hancock said he would "look into it". A Number 10 spokesman said the enforcement of fines is a matter for police. Hopes had been sparked that fines could be refunded after the health secretary, responding to a question at Tuesday evening's coronavirus press conference, said it was "perfectly reasonable" for ministers to consider a review. Mr Hancock was asked about a potential review by Martin, a vicar from Brighton, who was seemingly making reference to a trip made by the PM's chief aide Dominic Cummings from London to Durham. Mr Cummings has defended his actions, claiming he was in an exceptional circumstance and travelled to his parents house in order to be closer to childcare, should he and his wife become incapacitated by Covid-19. The advisor has received the backing of Boris Johnson and several other Cabinet ministers, leaving many to wonder whether lockdown rules were open…

Real Estate – “Name” (Goo Goo Dolls Cover)
If your song was on MTV in the fall of 1995, I thought it was cool by default. I had just entered sixth grade, and after years of being restricted to VH1 only, my parents were now allowing me to watch the edgier Music Television as well. Thus, my routine upon returning home from school consisted of watching music videos or heading to the basement to practice playing guitar. These activities overlapped. I spent a lot of time trying to learn the alt-rock hits that were in heavy rotation on the Totally Pauly video block, stuff by Bush and Everclear and Foo Fighters and Smashing Pumpkins. One I could never quite figure out was Goo Goo Dolls' "Name," which, as I later learned, was in an alternate tuning. Real Estate figured it out! In a SiriusXM session promoting their new album The Main Thing, the pastoral indie janglers covered "Name," which is probably one of the best songs ever out of Buffalo and definitely one of the best songs ever about former MTV VJ Kennedy.

As the fall flu season approaches, experts are hard at work on rapid at-home coronavirus tests hoping to have them made widely available in the United States, seeking a "technical breakthrough." There's an ongoing scramble for "next-stage technologies" that could ultimately lead to widespread COVID-19 tests quickly providing results at home, The Wall Street Journal reports, and many developers are in on the effort.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – Three American soldiers and five members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were wounded in an attack on a joint convoy of them on the administrative border between the governorates of Al-Hasakah and Deir Ezzor this week, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported, citing “local sources”. According to SANA’s sources, a joint convoy of U.S. and SDF personnel was attacked by unknown assailants on Tuesday, as the latter allegedly used machine guns and RPG launchers against them at the Ruwaishid junction. SANA said the eight injured were taken to the American base in Al-Shaddadi, a city located in the southern countryside of the Al-Hasakah Governorate. Neither the U.S. Coalition nor the Syrian Democratic Forces have reported this attack to corroborate the claims by SANA. The last time an attack like this was reported, the U.S. Coalition vehemently denied that any of its forces were wounded or killed, while adding that it was “fake news”.
