Morgan Lee / AP

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announces her decision to sign a law that legalizes recreational marijuana outside the state Capitol building in Santa Fe, N.M., on Monday, April 12, 2021. The Democratic governor described the law as a victory for social justice and a potential boon for economic development. Her decision makes New Mexico the seventh state since last November to legalize adult possession and sales of cannabis for recreational use. The legislation gives the governor strong oversight through the governor’s appointed superintendent of the Regulation and Licensing Department.

Lon Horwedel / Detroit News via AP

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer U.S. talks about the statewide COVID-19 vaccination effort during a press conference outside the Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center, which was hosting a vaccination clinic, Monday, April 12, 2021, in Ypsilanti, Mich.

LANSING, Mich. — The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday that Michigan should “close things down” to help address the country's worst coronavirus outbreak, days after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer instead urged people to voluntarily restrict certain activities.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky made the statement after being asked about some public health experts' calls to send additional doses of COVID-19 vaccine to the state, for which the governor has been advocating. The administration of President Joe Biden has stuck with allocating to states proportionally by population.

Movie trailer editor David Blanchard, a former regular visitor to ArcLight Cinemas Hollywood, stands outside the shuttered theater complex, Monday, April 12, 2021, in Los Angeles. Pacific Theaters, which operates some 300 screens in California, including the beloved ArcLight theaters and the historic Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, said Monday that it will not be reopening. Fans, including numerous actors, took to social media to share memories of the theater chain and lobby for it to be saved.

Hollywood’s theatrical business may be slowly rebounding but for some exhibitors the last year has been catastrophic. Pacific Theaters, which operates some 300 screens in California, including the beloved ArcLight theaters and the historic Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, said Monday that it will not be reopening.

“This was not the outcome anyone wanted, but despite a huge effort that exhausted all potential options, the company does not have a viable way forward,” a Pacific Theaters representative said in a written statement.

Entertainer Katsura Bunshi IV, participating as an Olympic torch relay runner, warms up as he waits for his preceding runner during the first day of the Osaka round at a former Expo site in Suita, north of Osaka, western Japan, Tuesday, April 13, 2021. The Tokyo 2020 Olympic kick-off event which was rescheduled due to the coronavirus outbreak was yet rearranged to hold at the former Expo park, instead of public streets, to close off the audience from the even, following the mayor’s decision as Osaka has had sharp increases in daily cases since early March.

TOKYO — The torch relay for the Tokyo Olympics ran through a mostly empty Osaka city park on Tuesday, showing the risks of trying to hold the postponed games during a pandemic.

It came on the same day that new coronavirus cases reportedly hit 1,000 for the first time in Japan's second largest metropolitan area.

What's next as Congress ramps up investigations of Jan. 6

John Minchillo / AP

In this Jan. 6, 2021, file photo violent insurrectionists loyal to President Donald Trump supporters try to break through a police barrier at the Capitol in Washington. A month ago, the U.S. Capitol was besieged by Trump supporters angry about the former president’s loss. While lawmakers inside voted to affirm President Joe Biden’s win, they marched to the building and broke inside.

WASHINGTON — More than three months after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol, Congress is still trying to figure out how to move forward and prevent future attacks.

While the Senate has already heard testimony from law enforcement leaders who were responsible for failures during the riot, several more committees are examining possible changes to the Capitol Police and a restructuring of the Capitol Police security command. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced last month that seven House panels would be probing the attack after hopes faded for setting up an independent, bipartisan commission.

India reels amid virus surge, affecting world vaccine supply

AP

People wait in queues outside the office of the Chemists Association to demand necessary supply of the anti-viral drug Remdesivir, in Pune, India, Thursday, April 8, 2021. The Indian city of Pune is running out of ventilators as gasping coronavirus patients crowd its hospitals. Social media is full of people searching for beds, while relatives throng pharmacies looking for antiviral medicines that hospitals ran out of long ago.

NEW DELHI — The Indian city of Pune is running out of ventilators as gasping coronavirus patients crowd its hospitals. Social media is full of people searching for beds, while relatives throng pharmacies looking for antiviral medicines that hospitals ran out of long ago.

The surge, which can be seen across India, is particularly alarming because the country is a major vaccine producer and a critical supplier to the U.N.-backed COVAX initiative. That program aims to bring shots to some of the world's poorest countries. Already the rise in cases has forced India to focus on satisfying its domestic demand — and delay deliveries to COVAX and elsewhere, including the United Kingdom and Canada.

Stranahan’s Original Single Malt Receives Rebranding, New Recipe

Leading American single malt producer Stranahan’s has announced several changes to its Stranahan’s Original whiskey, as the Colorado craft distillery celebrates 15 years.

This includes new packaging, and a blend of older liquids: four-year, five-year, six-year and seven-year old American single malts. The four-year provides Original’s signature malt-forward character, while the older barrels add spice and oak complexity to the final whiskey, the company says.

Since its first release 15 years ago, Stranahan’s has remained a pioneer in American single malts and Colorado distilling, including its annual Snowflake release, the recent Mountain Angel 10 Year Old (the distillery’s oldest release to date) and core expressions like Sherry Cask and Blue Peak. The refresh of Stranahan’s Original in the core lineup is meant to honor this 15 year commitment.

Stranahan’s Original is bottled at 47% ABV. It is available for purchase nationwide at a suggested retail price of $55 per 750-ml. bottle.

Sombra Reposé Mezcal

Sombra Mezcal has launched Sombra Reposé — a reposado aged in Bordeaux wine barrels.

Sourced from Château Léoville Poyferré, a second-growth wine estate in St Julien, France, the barrels are filled with Sombra’s Espadin mezcal and aged for up to six months. The Limousin oak softens the mezcal while enhancing the spirit’s botanical balance, the company reports, bringing through a light rosé color.

“We are very excited for our latest expression, Sombra Reposé, which uses our award-winning mezcal made from Espadin agave,” says Martha Cardoso, Sombra’s GM and director of the Sombra Adobe Brick Project. “It is fair trade and responsibly sourced, and aged in French barrels that formerly held prestigious wine. This process produces a refined spirit with a beautiful rose-colored hue, hence the name Reposé (French for rested, similar to the Spanish reposado).”

Sombra has a commitment to sustainability, including for The Adobe Brick Project, a community-focused program that upcycles distillation waste to create adobe bricks used to build houses for those in need, the company says. Also, the company donates at least 1% of sales to certified environmental charities and local educational initiatives in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Sombra Reposé Reposado Mezcal is 45% ABV. It has a fruity nose with a hint of smoke, vanilla, orange peel and blackberries, the company reports. It is smooth and warming to the palate, with a fruit-driven finish.
