As of today, certain job-related search-queries will yield job postings culled from different job boards — and they'll show up right in your search results. Those postings will be augmented, in some cases, by the time it would take to commute from your house and by the employer's ratings on sites like Glassdoor.

Why it matters: The project is part of a larger initiative called Google for Jobs that the company talked about at its annual Google I/O conference. It's also part of a larger trend of Google putting information directly in search results in an attempt to help people get more information without leaving Google's site.

Worth noting: While the program doesn't personalize results based on user data, it can rank job postings higher based on a user's location.

Addressing possible issues: We asked what the company was doing to deal with the possibility of discriminatory, socio-economic assumptions affecting its ranking of jobs. "If you wanted to be location agnostic, that's a very easy setting that you can change on Google," said product manager Nick Zakrasek. "But of course we're going to pay very close attention to unintended effects that might occur."

President Trump told the New York Post on Thursday that he plans to deliver his Republican National Convention speech from the White House lawn, despite bipartisan criticism of the optics and legality of the location.

Why it matters: Previous presidents avoided blurring staged campaign-style events — like party conventions — with official business of governing on the White House premises, per Politico.

Fauci's guidance on pre-vaccine coronavirus treatments

Antibody drugs and various medicine cocktails against the coronavirus are progressing and may provide some relief before vaccines.

The big picture: Everyone wants to know how and when they can return to "normal" life, as vaccines are not expected to be ready for most Americans for at least a year. Two therapies are known to be helpful, and more could be announced by late September, NIAID Director Anthony Fauci tells Axios.
