Another NRA official leaves organization amid turmoil

Washington (CNN)Another official with the National Rifle Association has left as the organization faces legal troubles, allegations of financial misconduct and other high-profile staff departures. Politico first reported Baker left the organization. Baker’s departure is the latest sign of turmoil within the gun rights organization. But her exit is not entirely surprising. She had worked closely with Chris Cox, the NRA’s former chief lobbyist, who resigned last month after NRA leadership accused him of participating in coup to overthrow NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre — a charge Cox denied to the New York Times. The NRA alleged in a federal lawsuit filed in June that the group’s former President Oliver North attempted to oust LaPierre, and argued texts and emails …

Boris Johnson’s early days as mayor: ‘It was total, total chaos’

After rapidly losing three advisers, the ship was eventually steadied largely thanks to those around him Boris Johnson had been mayor of London for 115 days when the rest of the world got its first glimpse of the idiosyncratic charms that had helped him bag the job. After shambling, his blazer unbuttoned, into the Birds Nest stadium in Beijing for the handover ceremony of the 2008 Olympics, he inexpertly flapped the official flag of the Games for a few seconds, half-heartedly punched the air and then put his hands in his pockets. Later that evening, Londons new and unusual mayor (New York Times) would declare to a gathering of tipsy Britons and utterly baffled Chinese that wiff-waff [was] coming home, …

Former vice-president Joe Biden came in with a comfortable lead, but stumbled during the debates and has one poll, shes now within two points of him. Joe Biden had a couple things going for him: he was connected to a popular Obama administration and he is still widely perceived as being electable. For stalwart Democratic voters, preventing a second term for Trump and an ever-rightward moving Republican party is a key priority. Biden might have stood out with his relatively conservative …

Mid-year burnout: does it exist or are we all just permanently tired?

Halfway through 2019, Guardian readers report feeling more exhausted than previous summers. Whats behind the malaise? Louise set herself two New Years resolutions for 2019: to start yoga, and to keep a journal. She did better than most people, sticking to both for five months.

Writing in her journal in the first week of June, the 30-year-old from Nottinghamshire wondered if hitting the six-month mark and the downwards slope to winter was taking its toll.
