Joe Biden's Teleprompter Malfunctions During First Coronavirus Update; Calls MA Governor Charlie 'Parker' | 23 March 2020 | Joe Biden's new foray into regular video updates about coronavirus stumbled out of the gate as the teleprompter malfunctioned and he called the sitting Massachusetts governor by the wrong name. Biden was speaking behind a podium when he began verbally stumbling around, as if he wasn't sure what to say, or was buying time. "Beef up the number of responders dealing with the crush -- these crush of cases. And, uh, and in addition to that," he said, looking down at his notes, before he waved his hand upward under the podium to conceal it. "And in addition to that we to, um, make sure that we, uh, we are in a position that we are, well, let me go to the second thing. I spoke enough of that," Biden said, before trying to move on from the blunder. Biden called the current Massachusetts governor "Charlie Parker," a jazz saxophonist from the 1950s.

Biden mocked after apparent teleprompter issue during coronavirus remarks: 'Let me go to the second thing'

Biden mocked after apparent teleprompter issue during coronavirus remarks: 'Let me go to the second thing' | 23 March 2020 | Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was mocked on Monday after the gaffe-prone 2020 Democratic front-runner appeared to lose his train of thought when his teleprompter malfunctioned during remarks on the coronavirus pandemic. Biden's remarks, livestreamed from a studio set up in his home, began with his touching his face despite ongoing warnings not to do that during the coronavirus pandemic. His remarks were also short compared with the president's near-daily coronavirus briefings, lasting less than 15 minutes in total, and featured a clear teleprompter issue that became a social media punchline. The former vice president was detailing his plan to fight the coronavirus crisis, but appeared to lose track of his place on the teleprompter. Biden signaled to his staff that there was something wrong, before going off on an awkward ad-lib.

The vote came while at least five GOP senators were in self-quarantine, including Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who became the first U.S. senator to announce he tested positive for the virus. Many Democrats had complained that the draft aid package did not go far enough to provide health care and unemployment aid for Americans, and failed to put restraints on a proposed $500 billion "slush fund" for corporations, saying the ban on corporate stock buy-backs are weak and the limits on executive pay would last only two years.

As Italy quarantines over coronavirus, swans appear in Venice canals, dolphins swim playfully --'Nature just hit the reset button' in the suddenly clear waters of Venice canals and off the coast of a locked-down Italy. | 18 March 2020 | What would a world without humans look like? As countries go under lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19, photos on social media suggest it might be a lot cleaner, for a start. As one observer put it, "Nature just hit the reset button." Most nonessential travel to countries in the European Union is banned and Italy, the epicenter of the outbreak on the continent, has closed all nonessential businesses. In Venice, the canals normally teeming with tourists and boat traffic are nearly empty. On social media, people are sharing photos and videos of clear water and wildlife rarely seen close to the city. For some, it was a small sign of hope as the country's death toll rose above 2,500 on March 17.
