House Committee Votes To , Release Redacted Trump Tax Returns. CBS News reports that the House Ways and Means Committee voted 24-16 on Dec. 20 to release the records. Portions of six years of Trump's tax returns will be made available to the public. Democrats pointed to the fact that nine of the last 10 presidents, the exception being Trump, released their tax returns. The idea that somebody is making millions of dollars and can get away without paying their taxes by avoiding — in an unprecedented way — their tax liability, while single moms who are trying to take care of their kids are being audited, is absolutely unacceptable, Democratic Rep. Mike Thompson, via statement. Means Committee chair Richard Neal said it will take a "few days" since sensitive information must first be redacted. . Neal also called for legislation that would force presidents to submit to annual audits of their taxes. Speaker Nancy Pelosi agreed and called on the House to quickly take up the legislation since Republicans will gain control of the chamber in January. Republican Rep. Kevin Brady called the decision "a dangerous new political weapon that overturns decades of privacy protections for average taxpayers in the era of political targeting.". CBS News reports that a 2020 'New York Times' article found that Trump only paid $750 in federal taxes in 2017 and 2018

Associated Press reports that the bill will now head to the Senate for approval before President Biden can sign off on it. Without the certainty of a final vote to avoid a shutdown this week, railroads will begin to halt the movement of critical materials like chemicals to clean our drinking water as soon as this weekend, Joe Biden, President of the United States, via Associated Press. Let me say that again: without action this week, disruptions to our auto supply chains, our ability to move food to tables, and our ability to remove hazardous waste from gasoline refineries will begin, Joe Biden, President of the United States, via Associated Press. According to business groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, every day that rail service was halted would deliver a $2 billion blow to the economy. . The legislation imposes a deal that was voted down by four of the 12 rail unions. .

Earth’s Inner Core May Be Reversing Its Rotation, Study Suggests [Video]

Earth’s Inner Core May Be Reversing Its Rotation, Study Suggests

Earth’s Inner Core , May Be Reversing Its Rotation, Study Suggests. According to a study published Jan. 23 in 'Nature Geoscience,' . our planet's inner core may be reversing after it temporarily stopped rotating. Researchers think it could be part of a 70-year cycle, with the inner core changing direction every 35 years, that may affect Earth's magnetic field and the length of days. After examining data, researchers think the inner core may have made another rotation reversal in the 1970s. We see strong evidence that the inner core has been rotating faster than the surface, [but] by around 2009 it nearly stopped. Now it is gradually mov[ing] in the opposite direction, Xiaodong Song, geophysicist, Peking University in Beijing, via 'Science News'. However, 'Science News' reports that other researchers think the inner core may change its rotation every three years. Others propose that the inner core doesn't move at all. Overall, researchers say more studies are needed to figure out what's going on with Earth's inner core. In all likelihood, it’s irrelevant to life on the surface, but we don’t actually know what’s happening. It’s incumbent on us to figure it out, John Vidale, geophysicist, the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, via 'Science News'
