BALTIMORE (AP) — Democrat Kweisi Mfume and Republican Kimberly Klacik won special primaries Tuesday for the Maryland congressional seat that was held by the late Elijah Cummings.
In a district where Democrats outnumber Republicans by more than 4 to 1, the Democratic nominee will be the heavy favorite heading into the April 28 special general election.
The majority-black district includes parts of Baltimore’s inner city that have struggled with drugs and violent crime as well as more well-to-do communities in the suburbs. For Mfume, who in 1996 stepped down to lead the NAACP after serving five terms as a district’s congressman, it’s a chance to regain the seat he held more than 20 years ago. Continue

WHATSAPP WILL STOP WORKING ON THESE DEVICES IN A FEW DAYS
The news is certainly not new, given that it had already been anticipated for several months, but precisely, for this reason, it may perhaps have crossed your mind. After the recent farewell to Windows Phone, WhatsApp will also pull the plug on iOS 7 and Android 2.3.7 (and earlier versions) starting from February 1, 2020.
So if you had an iPhone 4 (or a previous model) or an old Android smartphone with WhatsApp still active, know that from next Saturday you will no longer be able to use it. Exactly as happened on Windows Phone, we expect the app to no longer start, and it shouldn’t even be possible to access the chat history. So save a backup before then, if you don’t want to miss some important conversation and above all have a more updated smartphone.
WHATSAPP DARK MODE?
It is worth to mention that at the moment, the largest messaging application in the world is undergoing beta testing, the results of which should please many instant messenger fans. WhatsApp team has decided to add support for a dark mode. Finally, the company allows our eyes to take a break from bright light in the dark. And for many owners of smartphones with AMOLED screens, this is a good help to improve battery life. To access the WhatsApp Beta, you will need to be part of the Google Play Beta. If you are already part of this program, then expect an update to version 2.20.13 on your device in the near future. In addition to the dark theme, you will also receive some bug fixes and improvements.
Since this is a beta version, most likely, not everything will work perfectly. WhatsApp beta testers already know they can expect bugs. If you have already updated the application and still do not have the option to enable the dark theme, you may have to reinstall the application in order to make it work or wait until the desired version arrives on your device.
