Aron Baynes is waiting to see what’s cooking for his NBA and International career

Aron Baynes knows it’s not the best idea to make firm commitments in 2020. It’s why his impending free agency after a career year is barely something he can even think about, and booking a flight to play in the Tokyo Olympics is pointless until the sporting calendar has more stability.

“The best thing about 2020 is, no matter what plans you have, they’re gonna have to change,” Baynes told ESPN. “No matter what’s coming, or what I’ve thought of previously, it’s gonna change.”

One thing Baynes is sure about: don’t put anything except salt and pepper – lots of pepper – on your brisket. “Nothing fancy,” the budding pitmaster says of the central Texas method, before explaining why a smoke ring in a piece

A protest was held at the university on Thursday evening, with images on social media showing at least part of the fencing had been pulled down, hours after students awoke to find they were surrounded by the barriers. 

The university said the fence – which was put up around the Fallowfield halls of residence – would be taken down on Friday amid backlash. 

It was in response to concerns about non-residents accessing the site, and was not intended to stop students from coming and going, the vice-chancellor said. 

However, multiple students told The Independent they had no idea what was going on when they spotted the fencing around campus on the day England’s new lockdown came into

With Biden winning the popular vote, here’s how America could end the Electoral College

DENVER – As the presidential election between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden focuses increasingly on a few swing states that will determine the winner, millions of Americans are asking why their votes are essentially being taken for granted.

Why does the electoral vote matter more than the popular vote?

Now, a long-running effort to make the nation’s presidential election a “one person, one vote” system is gaining favor among partisan Democrats still angry that Trump won the 2016 presidency despite losing the popular vote by more than 2.8 million votes. Anxious voters continued waiting Thursday for results, which at the time showed Biden ahead of Trump with a significant amount of both popular and Electoral College votes.

Record-breaking smoke cloud from Australian fires was “jaw-dropping,” study says

Record-breaking smoke cloud from Australian fires was
Record-breaking smoke cloud from Australian fires was

The devastating Australian bushfires that burned from late 2019 to early 2020 left their mark on the landscape — 5.8 million hectares were scorched, nearly 3 billion animals were affected, and over 800 million tonnes of carbon dioxide were released, which is more than the amount of greenhouse gas emissions Australia emits in an entire year.

Researchers with the University of Saskatchewan’s Institute of Space and Atmospheric Studies found another frightening impact from the bushfires – a smoke cloud that rose into the stratosphere was three times larger than anything previously recorded. The largest on record prior to Australia’s smoke cloud was from British Columbia’s wildfires in 2017 when more than 1.2 million hectares were burned.

The researchers’ findings were published in Communications Earth & Environment, which state that the “unprecedented” smoke cloud was 1,000 km long and travelled 66,000 km over

Students at University of Manchester Topple ‘Lockdown’ Fence Around Residence Halls [Video]

Students rallied to tear down a ‘lockdown’ fence erected around residence halls at the University of Manchester on November 5, with the fence reportedly put up as a security measure.

Footage posted by the Socialist Worker Student Society shows a crowd knocking down a metal fence as onlookers cheer.

Local news reported the fence was erected as part of the University’s new security protocols due to England’s four-week-long COVID-19 lockdown. According to the Manchester Evening News, students claimed to have received no prior warning of the new measures.

The University’s President and Vice-Chancellor issued an apology following the protests on November 5. “The fencing was intended as a response to a number of concerns received over recent weeks from staff and students on this site about safety and security; particularly about access by people who are not residents,” wrote President and Vice-Chancellor Dame Nancy Rothwell.

“There was never any
