Seth Meyers: Trump WishedThere have been a large number of different news topics to discuss about Donald Trump this week, from his return to daily coronavirus briefings, to his ordering the Department of Homeland Security to... police cities despite the protests of local leaders, to his obsession with a test of his cognitive faculties that he took a while back. But in a new “A Closer Look” on Wednesday, Seth Meyers started off by discussing something strange he said this week about Ghislaine Maxwell. During the coronavirus briefing on Tuesday, Trump was asked about his relationship with Maxwell, who was recently arrested on the charge of helping with Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking operation. And Trump said: “I just wish her well, frankly. I’ve met her numerous times over the years, especially since I...

Here's how scientists know theThe origin of the novel coronavirus pandemic is the subject of conspiracy theories that circulate on social media claiming that the virus was created in a Wuhan lab. Researchers have already... demonstrated that the virus is of animal origin. A new report explains precisely why the scientific community agrees that the virus is the result of natural evolution of a bat coronavirus which found its way to humans. The scientific evidence that the coronavirus wasn't created in a lab will never go viral like the crazy conspiracies, no matter how many times scientists tell people that COVID-19 isn't a man-made disease. Research dating back to March shows that the SARS-CoV-2 virus evolved naturally from animals. The studies explained there's no doubt the virus grew inside an animal before making the...

We've admittedly worked with photographer Jeff Rojas a number of times in the past. Very recently, we've deleted all 21 blog posts promoting anything in regards to sales with him, short interviews,... and sections of larger features that he's been involved in. When we had him on Inside the Photographer's Mind with Adorama a while back, we were cautioned about working with him. And we've heard enough from a large body of women and prominent people in the photo industry to formally remove ourselves from working with him. So why write this post? Well, you should probably know what's going on.

The Canon EOS R5 is in for review right now, and we decided to not only do our token durability test, but to also show you all how it does at high ISO settings. The Canon EOS R5 is the closest thing... that we've got to a mirrorless version of the Canon 5D series of cameras. While it's surely performing like one, it feels a bit like a 90D and a 5D series camera smushed together. There's no magic touch bar, but the joystick's placement is a bit odd.

But overall, I think that Canon users will be very...
