The second round of the Gallup-style ‘Mood of the Nation’ poll conducted by Colombo-based economic think tank Verité Research shows within the first six months of the year, the sentiments of the public have dampened significantly. When compared with the January 2022 poll, the June 2022 poll shows that the country is less satisfied and has lower confidence in the management of the economy than it did at the beginning of the year. In terms of economic confidence, the score was a negative 96, while in January, the rating was negative 83. The economic confidence was assessed with multiple-choice questions on the condition and trajectory of the economy. The poll is based on an islandwide nationally representative sample of responses from 1,052 Sri Lankan adults, conducted in June 2022.

Asus will launch the ROG (Republic of Gamers) Phone 6 on July 5, and we expect it to be one of the first devices with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset on the market. We already saw the design on TENAA, but today a new leak essentially confirmed it. There are more important features on this phone, including the extra keys on the back that come with the AeroActive cooler. The accessory is a lot more different than the predecessor that was designated to the ROG Phone 5 and 5s series but retains the most important feature - two clickable buttons on both sides of the fan. The protective case has plenty of buttons uncovered, as well as the back panel, so we assume it is there for better grip during gaming and not protecting the ROG Phone 6 at all costs.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The white gunman who killed 10 Black people in a racist attack at a Buffalo supermarket was charged Wednesday with federal hate crimes and could face the death penalty if convicted. The criminal complaint filed Wednesday against Payton Gendron coincided with a visit to Buffalo by Attorney General Merrick Garland. But the memo does not prohibit federal prosecutors from seeking the death penalty, a decision that ultimately will fall to Garland. Federal executions have been halted as the Justice Department conducts a review of its policies and procedures for capital punishment. President Joe Biden has said he opposes the death penalty and his team vowed that he would take action to stop its use while in office.

Domestic extremist groups see conservatives as potential allies, Bjork-James said, and they’ve found anti-LGBTQ sentiment is one of the easiest ways to expand. BOISE, Idaho — As hate speech targeting LGBTQ people increases among some far-right influencers and others online, experts are warning that extremist groups may see the rhetoric as a call to action. The arrests came as a toxic brew of anti-LGBTQ rhetoric has been on the rise in Idaho and elsewhere. “There is a very clear relationship between normalizing this hateful content and having extremist groups try to mobilize around that in hateful actions,” she said.

Lawmakers hope to show that Trump's effort to overturn Joe Biden's election victory posed a grave threat to democracy. Stepien, a longtime Trump ally, oversaw the “conversion” of Trump’s presidential campaign to a “Stop the Steal” effort, according to a subpoena issued by the committee last fall. He was likely to face questions about what those in Trump's inner circle were telling the president about the election results. Stepien is now a top campaign adviser to the Trump-endorsed House candidate, Harriet Hageman, who is challenging Cheney in the Wyoming Republican primary election. Stepien was subpoenaed, and Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich suggested that the committee’s decision to call him was politically motivated.
