The bail for Derek Chauvin, the white Minneapolis police officer accused murdering African-American George Floyd two weeks ago, was been raised by $250,000 to $1.25 million on Monday.

Chauvin made his first court appearance remotely via closed-circuit television wearing an orange jumpsuit and a face mask.

He is accused of 2nd degree murder in the May 25 death of Floyd in Minneapolis by kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.

Minnesota Assistant Attorney General Matthew Frank argued that the "severity of the charges" as well as the strength of public opinion made it more likely that Chauvin would flee if set free, Minnesota’s Star Tribune reported.

What Should You Do With Your Clothes After The Police Tear Gas You?

Since George Floyd’s death on May 25, people have gathered to protest, in groups large and small, against police brutality. To disperse crowds of protesters, law enforcement has frequently sprayed tear gas. Its micro-pulverized dust lodges both in the body and in clothing. According to Allure, the CDC says anyone sprayed with tear gas, even lightly, should shower and shampoo as soon as possible. If clothing needs to be lifted over the head to remove, it should be cut away.

African American Reporter: Like It Or Not, Box Braids Are Professional

For what seems like forever, the hair of African American women has been considered inherently unprofessional. In fact, the persistent practice of workplaces banning certain textures and styles associated with Black hair has led to hair-centric anti-discrimination laws. Now, Allure reports television reporter Treasure Robert's tweet about the issue has gone viral. The tweet has been liked more than 100,000 times in less than 48 hours, and the replies are full of support and similar sentiments. Roberts says she's in awe of the response. Representation is important and I hope that other journalists and Black women, in general, are motivated to be unapologetically themselves.

Tremendous work on non-vaccine treatment: Donald Trump on US' Covid response

Donald Trump, President of the United States of America, commented on the progress of research to stop the Covid-19 pandemic. Commenting on the race to develop a vaccine, he said that many companies are close to creating a successful one. He also announced a $2 billion deal with Sanofi and GSX for clinical trials and mass production of 10 crore doses of a vaccine. The US military is prepared to carry out distribution of a vaccine once it gets requisite clearance, said Trump. He also said that 'tremendous work' is being done on therapeutics, or non-vaccine treatment. The US government is looking at such methods 'very, very strongly'. The nation's Covid case tally has crossed 45 lakh, the highest in the world, with over 1.52 lakh deaths so far. The pandemic is set to be the biggest issue, apart from alleged discrimination against African-Americans, in the upcoming Presidential polls in the US. Elections are slated to be held in November 2020, although Trump has called for a postponement which was met with stern opposition. Watch the full video for more.

Omar Failing In Money Race

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is in a tough fight for re-election in her Minnesota district. Antone Melton-Meaux is challenging Omar in an August primary race. Melton-Meaux has raised seven times more than Omar in the last fundraising cycle. The Washington Examiner says Melton-Meaux raised $3.2 million between March and April. Melton-Meaux reported having $2 million in cash on hand to keep him afloat ahead of the Aug. 11 primary. Omar did not fare as well as her competitor when it came to fundraising. Omar raised just $471,624 in the same time frame, roughly one-seventh of Melton-Meaux's haul. The congresswoman's campaign told the Star Tribune that she has $1.1 million in cash on hand.
