Corona virus changes the ways to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan for Muslims
As most of the religious places of worship are closed to follow stay-at-home order, Muslims are celebrating Ramadan differently this year.
The holy month of Ramadan is starting on Thursday, which is a time for fasting, prayer, charity, and community feasts for Muslims. Saba Khawaja said: "We are all in this together. It's impacting everyone, our kids, our family. We have to make the best of this."
A resident, Asra Farooq, said that her family is packing care packages for the neighbors as they used to do this in Mosque every year. Some Mosques and Muslim organizations are taking their programming online, but for others, the conditions remain the same.
"It is preferred to just do things together with your family and the people around you, instead of doing things virtual," said Imam Ibrahim Khader, of the Muslim Community Center in Chicago.
According to Khader, there are many lessons to learn from this year's Ramadan month. He says that we can learn to be independent in relationship with God of where we are, who's around us, or who's looking at us. Farooq found some ways to give back to her community to follow social distancing guidelines. Her husband being a doctor, will continue to serve the patients. "It feels like such a great opportunity for him to practice his faith even further," she said. "While everyone else is social distancing and able to stay at home and protect themselves, he feels like he's able to go out and help others and be of service."
Smollett’s counter lawsuit has been thrown out
A federal judge has decided to throw out the Jussie Smollett’s counter lawsuit against the city by saying that the lawsuit can not move forward until the first lawsuit is handled. The city had spent $130000 on investigating a so-called crime in January 2019. The city now is trying to recoup the donated money, and Smollett is avoiding paying that fees. Smollett’s counter lawsuit claims that the investigation has not been carried out correctly and accuses that the critical evidence was ignored. It also claims that Chicago Police Superintendent is trying to target Smollett without any reason. The former “Empire” claimed last year that he was a victim of a racist and homophobic attack. However, police after an investigation said that Smollett himself had staged this attack as he was unhappy with his “Empire” salary.
Long way to go for reopening economy in Illinois
As the health officials have updated about the situation of COVID-19 in Illinois with 1551 new cases, Governor JB Pritzker said that Illinois has still not reached a peak in COVID-19.
A few weeks ago it was thought that the peak of COVID-19 would be reached by mid-to-late April, but it was due to social distancing efforts and the natives of Illinois co-operation that the city has still not reached its peak of COVID-19.
GOV. Pritzker applauded these efforts from the people of the state and said that the state might not be able to reopen its economy like other states. He said there only some changes in stay-at-home order.
Gov. Pritzker said that before reopening the economy, enough testing and tracing should be done so that further spread of the virus could be restricted. He further said that the authorities are trying to take every possible effort into testing and tracing.
Gov Pritzker said that according to the guidelines laid by the federal government, the economy could be reopened after 14 days of declining of cases.
In a step to prevent the spread of the infection, the state had to cancel may and early June festivals including the memorial day parade, Gospel and Blue fests. As the state is getting hit financially by the pandemic, Gov. Pritzker said that they have decided to expand relief privately-financed student loans. The state has also agreed to provide benefits to SNAP recipients having children by providing $112 million.

Republicans blame economic breakdown on Democratic Governors
As the economy and health both are going through a massive crisis, Republicans across the states are trying to lay the blame for the economic breakdown on Democratic governors, ramping up a strategy for the presidential elections. Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania — are all laid by Democratic governors. The Republican lawmakers of the state are blaming the actions of stay-at-home orders or business shutdowns as the work of overzealous, nanny-state Democrats. In Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, the GOP legislature is trying to strip the democratic governors of power so that they can impose restrictions on businesses.
The stay-at-home order was passed by both the Republican and Democratic governors, amide the advice from the state and federal health officials and guidance from President Trump. But the clash is occurring as many Republican governors are easing the orders and reopening the businesses to boost the economy, led by Trump. Republicans are trying to position themselves as defenders of the economy, even if they have to risk the health of the public. The hard-line messages are marked as the arrival of a contentious phase as the political fight over who to blame for the economic fall, and this could even be a political disaster for Republicans if the job does not return by November and Trump will be blamed for unemployment.

Heat increases problems for homeless, help them with donations
Already worse conditions as caused by Coronavirus pandemic had been worsened due to increasing heat for the homeless. An advocate named Elizabeth Venable is working for the homeless says, "It kills them if they don't have access to water."
According to her COVID-19 closures and rising temperatures are a deadly combination. "It's terrifying. Water fountains are gone. Bathrooms are gone," says Venable.
These conditions had laid some organizations to change their relief strategies. One such organization is the Andre House in Phoenix. Elizabeth Wunsch, Director of Volunteer Services and Communication at the Andre House, said: "They used to come into our dining hall during the day and fill our halls. They can't do that anymore,"
Due to social distancing, many past respite areas are unavailable. Andre House has been able to convert outside shaded areas for some relief. The non-profit provides water and ice to guests, but Wunsch says care is "very, very complicated, and the heat only makes it worse."
COVID-19 restrictions had even created purchasing water cases a challenge. "We do need donations of water. This is the time of year we typically start getting it," said Wunsch.
Meanwhile, Venable says she has to visit stores at its opening and buys as much water she can buy.

30 años después, Codesal sigue hablando de Maradona: "Como persona es de lo peor que conocí en mi vida" - RT en Español
El árbitro de la final del Mundial de Italia '90 también reconoció que pudo haber echado a Maradona antes de comenzar el partido entre Argentina y Alemania.
Diego Maradona podría haber sido expulsado antes del inicio de la final de la Copa Mundial de 1990, según comentó Edgardo Codesal en diálogo con el programa de radio 'Tirando Paredes': "Si yo hubiese aplicado el reglamento, debí haber expulsado antes del partido por el insulto que le hace a todo el estadio. Pero traté de calmarlo y de explicarle que estábamos ante una final del mundo. Es el mejor jugador del mundo y no lo quiso entender. Reglamentariamente lo pude haber echado." Recordemos que los italianos presentes en el estadio silbaron el himno argentino, dolidos por haber visto como Maradona los eliminaba en semifinales. El exárbitro, nacido en Uruguay y radicado en México, fue más allá y afirmó que, tras la expulsión de Pedro Monzón, el campeón del mundo de México '86 lo increpó: "Ya sabíamos que esto es un robo, la FIFA te mandó a que nos robaran el partido, para que no ganáramos". Codesal, al que todos recuerdan por el polémico penal que pitó en dicha final ganada por Alemania, durante la entrevista habló del Maradona futbolista: "Como jugador, todo mi respeto, toda mi admiración", y también se refirió al Maradona fuera de la cancha: "Como persona, se me hace una de las peores que he conocido en mi vida" En cuanto al penal que terminó en gol de Alemania, Codesal aseguró que hoy lo volvería a pitar: "El penal de Sensini no está en discusión. El jugador quiere jugar un balón que está a la derecha del atacante con su pierna derecha, lo cual es anatómicamente muy difícil. [...] Nunca llegó a tocar el balón".
