The IRS deadline to register a claim for a missing stimulus payment this year has now expired, but you can still file a request to get your missing check — you just have to wait until 2021 to receive up to $1,200 per qualified adult for the first payment the IRS sent in April.

We’ll show you how to figure out if you’re part of a group that could still be eligible for a full or catch-up payment. This is separate from a potential second stimulus check, which Congress is still weighing as part of another economic stimulus package amid increased pressure to ramp up negotiations and pass a new bill. (If a second check is approved, you might get it faster if you do these things now.)

Massachusetts Lottery players will soon be able to claim prizes through its smartphone app

Beginning sometime next spring, Massachusetts Lottery players will be able to claim large prizes from their phones and have their winnings deposited directly into a bank account through an app that Lottery officials said will eliminate millions of miles of car travel and associated greenhouse gas emissions.

The Lottery plans to roll out the new functionality of its mobile app in two phases, starting with giving Lottery players the ability to scan a ticket into the app to find out if it is a winner. The second phase, which is expected to be available by early spring, would allow Lottery players to claim prizes between $601 and $5,000 through the app rather than going to a Lottery claims center. The money would be wired directly to a bank account on file after the Lottery withholds any unpaid child support or tax obligations.

We’ll show you how to claim your share of the stimulus check.


Sarah Tew/CNET

The IRS deadline to register a claim this year for a missing stimulus payment was yesterday, Nov. 21. If you missed the Saturday deadline, it doesn’t mean you won’t get a payment, but you won’t get a check this year and will have to wait until 2021 to clam your money. We’ll show you how to do that.

Below, we explain how to see if you’re eligible for more economic impact money and how to estimate your total stimulus payment. This payment is separate from a second stimulus check, which Congress is still considering as part of another economic stimulus package if negotiations can yield a bipartisan agreement on the substance of the legislation.

The federal government still owes money to millions of Americans from the first round of coronavirus relief payments. According

India Disputes Claim That China Routed Their Troops With Microwave Blaster

The Times of London quotes a report that Chinese forces used a non-lethal microwave weapon to drive Indian soldiers from two hilltops they occupied in Ladakh in an ongoing border dispute. If this is accurate, it would mark the first time such weapons have been used in action anywhere. However, the Indian Army has denied the reports, with an official Twitter account stating that “The news is FAKE.”

The claims were made by Jin Canrong, a professor of international relations at Renmin University in Beijing. Jin alleged that after fifteen minutes of microwave attack the Indian troops were forced to retreat and that the weapons “solved the problem beautifully.”

This type of weapon was originally developed by the US Joint Nonlethal

Shares in Joyy closed down more than 26% in New York on Wednesday after Muddy Waters published its report accusing the company of making up revenues and labeling the business “a multibillion-dollar fraud.” The shares recovered some of those losses in after hours trading and were up 16% premarket on Thursday.

Zuckerberg says Facebook execs expected Trump to falsely claim victory

Mark Zuckerberg has said that Facebook fully expected Donald Trump to falsely claim electoral fraud, saying that they had put into place policies in September in anticipation of the president’s actions.

The Facebook CEO testified at a congressional hearing on Tuesday, called to explore the content moderation practices of Facebook and Twitter, as Republicans accuse social media companies of censoring conservative speech.

In October, Republican politicians on the Senate judiciary committee voted unanimously to approve formal summons for Mr Zuckerberg and Mr Dorsey. Democrats on the panel did not vote on the subpoena.

The subpoenas were approved right after the social media platforms decided to block stories from the New York Post that made claims about the son of then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Cory Booker, senator for New Jersey, said the US was “in dangerous waters”, adding that if what is going on in

Arroyo: Biden holding ‘staged events’ to bolster presidential claim

This is a rush transcript from “The Ingraham Angle” November 11, 2020. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

LAURA INGRAHAM, FOX NEWS HOST: I’m Laura Ingraham, this is THE INGRAHAM ANGLE from Washington tonight. Black Lives Matters activists are now storming into school board meetings, yes. Demanding anti-racist curricula and even getting their wish in certain states. 

So, could a potential Biden administration actually federalize this? An ANGLE investigation ahead. Plus, Joe Biden promised he would not declare victory until the election is certified. So, why is he already ready to roll out a cabinet. Mike Huckabee reacts to that. And speaking of Biden what truly unbelievable claim did his sister just make. Raymond Arroyo has that in Seen and Unseen and a lot more. But first, denying Schumer his yes men. That’s the focus of tonight’s ANGLE.

Maria Bartiromo, the Fox Business host, declared herself done with Twitter two days after the election.

She tweeted a link to an article that falsely claimed Democrats were trying to steal the election. Twitter hid the post behind a label warning that it contained misleading content. Twitter also notified Bartiromo that someone had complained about her account (even though it did clarify she had not violated any rules and it was taking no action against her).

For Bartiromo, the label was the last straw.

“This is the same group who abused power in 2016,” Bartiromo

Fact checking the outlandish claim that millions of Trump votes were deleted

A human error that briefly led to incorrect election results in a Michigan county has spiraled into a sprawling, baseless conspiracy theory suggesting that glitches in widely-used voting software led to millions of miscast ballots.

Conservative media figures, social media users, and President Donald Trump have spread rumors about problems with Dominion Voting Systems, an election technology company that supplies software to many local governments. They’ve claimed that isolated reports about Election Night glitches raise concerns about election results in states around the country.

“DOMINION DELETED 2.7 MILLION TRUMP VOTES NATIONWIDE,” Trump tweeted on Thursday, citing a report from the right-wing One America News Network. Without showing any evidence, he claimed that states using the company’s technology had “SWITCHED 435,000 VOTES

Trump spreads baseless claim about Dominion Voting Systems after losing election

President Trump and campaign surrogates have claimed, without evidence, that widespread voter fraud occurred in the key battleground states that gave President-elect Biden the necessary electoral college votes to become the projected 46th president of the United States. The latest claim, that Dominion Voting Systems, a voting software company used in 28 states, deleted and switched votes intended for Mr. Trump, also does not hold water. 

The president on Thursday tweeted an unsubstantiated story from the pro-Trump One America News Network that Dominion “deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide,” citing “data analysis.” The post, which was flagged by Twitter, tagged OANN personality Chanel Rion, who earlier in the week amplified the baseless claim that a “glitch” in the system caused Mr. Biden to initially lead in the historically Republican county. The Michigan secretary of state’s office said it was a human error that was quickly corrected.
