New York City will be “fully open” on July 1 — nearly a year-and-a-half after the COVID-19 shutdown, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Thursday morning.

“We are ready for stores to open, for businesses to open, offices, theaters, full-strength,” Hizzoner said in an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The Big Apple is finally ready to reopen because “people have gotten vaccinated in extraordinary numbers, 6.3 million vaccinations in New York City to date,” the mayor said.

“We know the vaccination effort is going to grow and grow,” he added. “We gotta keep working hard at that.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene Sinks To New ‘Level Of Dumb’ In Biden Speech Criticism

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) dropped to another “level of dumb” for blasting President Joe Biden’s push Wednesday to expand free education, one Twitter critic said.

In an address to Congress, the president outlined a vast “American Families Plan,” which among other things would create free universal pre-K and two years of tuition-free community college.

But the QAnon-supporting Greene, who was stripped of her House committee assignments for spouting tinfoil-hat theories, bashed the proposal as just another conspiracy.

“Federally funded school from age 3 to 20 doesn’t sound like education, it sounds like indoctrination,” she tweeted. “All at your expense. By force in the form of taxes.”

Twitter educated Greene, reminding her that “federally funded education” covers the public education system already in place.

Oddly, Greene seemed to generally understand the concept of free public schools in a tweet earlier in the day backing parents revolting against student mask mandates. “Taxes pay for the schools,” she wrote.

But she appeared to forget that during Biden’s speech.

Continental Aims For Zero Carbon In All Plants

Continental AG (CTTAY.PK) said it aims to save more than 1 billion euros in gross terms from 2023 per year. That comes to 850 million euros at Continental excluding Vitesco Technologies.

At Annual Shareholders’ Meeting, the company’s Chairman of the Executive Board
Nikolai Setzer, said the company’s board is recommending that no dividend
be paid for 2020.

For 2040, the company aims for zero carbon in all plants.

By 2050 at the latest, the company plans to be carbon-neutral across entire business. In other words, from one end of the value chain to the other. “And then comes the big goal: “100 percent carbon neutrality.” We are targeting 2050 for this at the latest,” Nikolai Setzer said.

The Feds Seized Rudy Giuliani’s Cellphone And Everyone Cracked The Same Jokes

Rudy Giuliani’s cellphones and other electronic devices were seized by federal agents on Wednesday as part of the investigation into his business dealings in Ukraine.

And the raid on the Manhattan home and office of the former personal attorney to ex-President Donald Trump prompted plenty of people on Twitter to crack the same kind of gag about his inadvertent penchant for butt-dialing reporters.

In 2019, the former New York mayor ranted about then-Democratic hopeful Joe Biden and needing funds in recordings he accidentally left on the phone of NBC investigative reporter Rich Schapiro.

“Now he’ll have to butt-dial reporters on the landlines,” read a mocking post from “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

Opinion: NFL teams couldn’t forget WR Ja’Marr Chase, even after he opted out of 2020 season

Talk about a long wait. It has been nearly 16 months since Ja’Marr Chase — who opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns — last played in a football game. And what a game it was: Nine catches, 221 yards and two touchdowns, helping LSU scorch Clemson in the national championship game to cap an undefeated season.

Come Thursday night, the wait won’t seem so long. Many draft experts project Chase will be the first wide receiver selected in the NFL draft, which is impressive on multiple levels. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner, DeVonta Smith, is a receiver, too. And Smith, like his potent Alabama teammate Jaylen Waddle, will be an early pick.

That Chase (6-0, 207 pounds) might rate higher than the pair who played in the most recent national championship game?

“That tells you what people think of him,” Bucky Brooks, the NFL.com analyst, told USA TODAY Sports. “You have to take COVID off the table. Treat him as if he was injured for a season and watch the last film you have. He was awesome.”

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott elated with injury rehab progress: ‘It’s like a high’

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has celebrated the little wins since October.

He was grateful when the compound fracture in his ankle avoided post-surgery infection in November, excited to show off a crutch-free hobble at Cowboys practice in December.

Now, six-and-a-half months removed from the designed run that went awry, Prescott is creeping toward full availability for the 2021 season. And he’s elated.

“I don't even know if you can put into words the feeling throwing again,” Prescott told USA TODAY Sports Wednesday over Zoom. “Not throwing sitting in a chair or throwing not moving, but actually dropping back and using your legs.

“It’s like a high. It’s like a drug for me.”
