  1. Saturday

    Saturday is the day of the week between Friday and Sunday. The Romans named Saturday Sāturni diēs ("Saturn's Day") no later than the 2nd century for the planet Saturn, which controlled the first hour of that day, according to Vettius Valens. The day's name was introduced into West Germanic languages and is recorded in the Low German languages such as Middle Low German sater(s)dach, Middle Dutch saterdag (Modern Dutch zaterdag) and Old English Sætern(es)dæġ and Sæterdæġ. The day was also referred to as "Sæternes dæġe" in an Old English translation of Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People. In Old English, Saturday was also known as sunnanæfen ("sun" + "eve" cf. dialectal German Sonnabend).

Etymology and Origins

  1. Saturday

    This, the seventh day of the week, was dedicated by the Romans to Saturn. As, however, all the other week-days were named by the people of Northern Europe in accordance with Scandinavian mythology, one must incline to the opinion that this was named after Sæter, a water deity. Its Anglo-Saxon designation was Sæterdæg.

  4. Josh Hawley:

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Capitol Hill Saturday. The current draft legislation, rolled out by the Senate GOP andobtained by Fox News on Thursday, would provide payments of up to $ 1,200 per person. They would be phased down at adjusted gross income thresholds of $ 75,000 for individuals and $ 150,000 per couple. Additionally, there would be $ 500 payments for each child. The amount, though, is slated to then be reduced by $ 5 for each $ 100 a taxpayers income exceeds the legislations threshold. The amount is reduced to zero for single taxpayers with incomes exceeding $ 99,000 and $ 198,000 for joint filers. The legislation also outlined $ 300 billion for small businesses to keep furloughed and laid-off workers on the payroll and $ 208 billion in loans to airlines and other industries. Some Republicans have objected to certain measures outlined in the bill, and most Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, have sounded the alarm saying the measure does not go far enough in protecting American families, and is too focused on corporations. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., introduced an amendment to McConnells plan on Saturday, which aimed to expand relief forlow-income and middle-income Americans.Hawleys plan lowers the threshold for Americans to qualify for the $ 1,200 relief. In order to qualify, under Josh Hawley amendment, an individual must be a U.S. citizen with a Social Security number. Under McConnells plan, an individual must file taxes and have an income greater than $ 0 in order to qualify, which Josh Hawley says leaves behind Americans who are disabled, or living in public housing that dont file taxes due to not having any true income of their own. During this emergency our focus should be on helping every American who needs it, including especially our most vulnerable citizens, excluding or penalizing families with lower incomes doesnt make sense. Congress should prioritize lower-income and middle-class families through this crisis. Meanwhile, White House Legislative Affairs Director Eric Ueland declined to share specific details Capitol Hill Saturday on whether all GOP senators were on board with the ongoing discussions over the stimulus package.

Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Saturday that he would have preferred The White House adopt the upper chamber’s bill but welcomed the effort.
