Harris said President Donald Trump attempted to downplay the threat of COVID-19 despite being aware of the severity of it just because he “wanted people to remain calm.” She then criticized the vice president for defending Trump even after knowing “how serious this was.”

Women’s Super League: West Ham United 0-1 Reading: Lauren Bruton scores winner for visitors

Reading registered their second Women’s Super League win of the season as a goal by Lauren Bruton proved enough to beat West Ham at Dagenham.

Burton forced the ball home from Natasha Harding’s cross after Reading had lost Fara Williams to injury.

West Ham went close to an equaliser after the break when Adriana Leon’s effort was tipped onto the post.

Keeper Grace Moloney excelled again by saving Kenza Dali’s penalty after she was adjudged to have fouled Leon.

The home side brought in Kate Longhurst and Emily van Egmond after a 9-1 home defeat by Arsenal in their most recent game on 12 September.

And they made a bright start with Maz Pacheco, Leon and Longhurst all trying their luck in the early exchanges.

But Danielle Carter went close in reply and, after Williams went off to be replaced by Brooke Chaplen, they took the lead when Bruton scored

Sam Mewis goal video: US star scores Man City FA Cup semis winner

Manchester City Women’s American duo is starting to make an impact.

Sam Mewis scored what wound up being the game-winner, while Rose Lavelle played her first minutes for the club in a 2-1 triumph over Arsenal in the Women’s FA Cup semifinals on Thursday. Man City will play Everton, a 3-0 semifinal winner over Birmingham City, in the Nov. 1 final at Wembley Stadium. These matches mark the completion of the 2019-20 tournament, which had been suspended as a result of the pandemic. The 2020-2021 competition is currently in the qualifying-round stages.

For Man City to reach the final, Mewis broke a 1-1 deadlock at the 40-minute mark, pouncing on a loose ball in the Arsenal box to complete a sequence that she started. 

Mewis’s finish followed a superb goal by Jordan Nobbs, which had brought Arsenal level after Steph Houghton’s opener on an excellent free kick.

Lavelle then entered

Tesla Model 3 scores poorly on European assisted driving tests

Europe’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) has released its second series of assisted driving grades, and despite having the best technology, Tesla’s Model 3 came away with a mediocre score. The reason? Driver engagement is a key factor and Tesla’s Autopilot system “encourages the driver to relinquish too much control,” according to the testers (via RoadShow).

The results from the test don’t show that Tesla’s systems are bad, in fact far from it. Tesla had the top score in vehicle assistance, meaning its automatic braking, lane-keeping and other systems all work well together. It also beat all rivals in the “safety backup” section, as it can handle things like a system failure, unresponsive driver and collision avoidance with aplomb — as we’ve seen before in viral Tesla videos.

According to NCAP, however, the problems lie within a category called “driver engagement.” Testers said that the marketing materials don’t line
