The White House says 21 states in the U.S. are now under ten-percent for positivity rates for coronavirus cases. During a press briefing yesterday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany [[ MACK-en-ay-nee ]] said President Trump wants to see the economy reopen safely. However, McEnany warned that everyone needs to "keep cognizant" of the recommendations from the CDC.        American astronauts are set to launch into space from U.S. soil for the first time in nearly a decade this afternoon. A SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule will carry Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the International Space Station, the first space crew to launch from the U.S. since 2011. It's also the first time NASA is using a private company to send astronauts into space.        Tensions boiled in the streets of Minneapolis Tuesday as police in riot gear clashed with demonstrators angry over the death of an unarmed black man. Video of George Floyd's arrest on Monday shows an officer with his knee on his neck as Floyd says he can't breathe. Four officers involved in the arrest have already been fired.       Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear is calling the hanging of an effigy outside his home an act to create fear and terror. This comes after a right-wing militia group gathered and protested first at the Capitol then at the Governor's mansion. "The Three-Percenters" were demonstrating in favor of the Second Amendment and protesting restrictions put in place by Beshear to combat the spread of coronavirus. The governor is condemning local elected officials who rallied with them before.        Boeing is set to announce cuts to its U.S. workforce this week, part of the aerospace company's ten-percent reduction in workers around the globe. The plan involves attrition along with voluntary and involuntary layoffs of its 160-thousand employees worldwide. A union representing more than 17-thousand Boeing employees in the U.S. says layoff notices will likely be coming Friday.       "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" is now in the record books. FX announced the show was being renewed for a 15th season. That will make it the longest-running live-action American comedy series ever. It's Always Sunny premiered in 2005 and finished its record-tying series last November.
