    CHICAGO (CBS) —One massive hit on a Chicago cell phone store does double damage this holiday season. Thieves got away with not only merchandise, but thousands of Christmas gifts for kids on the city’s South Side. As CBS 2’s Steven Graves explains, it’s the way they did it that makes it hurt even more. READ MORE: Three Men Shot In Robbery Attempt Outside Garfield Red Line StationAfter more than a decade, this was going to be the year for Joy McCann’s toy drive. “We’re not just going to do it, but we did it better than we ever did before.” These bags full of Christmas gifts, a fraction of the about 20,000 items she and her group Project Loose Change collected. “Some Kindles. Some little bikes,” said “It was just toys. A bunch of toys,” McCann said. So many, that she had to use her friend Sayaad Dababneh’s Boost Mobile Store in South Chicago to store them in back room safes. But then last Sunday, Christmas joy turned to panic. “Now, no toys for the kids. And it just breaks...
    During the town hall, Fauci claimed that the new variant's emergence in the U.S. shouldn't cause Americans to change their holiday travel plans. But he did use the news as a platform to encourage adult Americans to receive booster shots and children aged 5 to 11 to receive their first dose of the vaccine. "If you can, just get vaccinated as soon as you can, and right now is the time to get boosted," Fauci said. The public health official has been a vocal supporter of the widespread administration of booster shots. Last month in an interview with Axios, he remarked that it's "extremely important for people to get boosters" and indicated that boosters would ultimately become "a part of the standard regimen" in fighting off the pandemic.

Caitlyn Jenner reveals another grandchild is on the way Caitlyn Jenner calls out Jimmy Kimmel after host compares her to ‘Trump in a wig’ Caitlyn Jenner’s feud with Ellen DeGeneres got so bad that the former Olympian once considered asking her famous Kardashian family to never go on the daytime host’s show again. “I thought, ‘Maybe I should call Kris [Jenner] and say, ‘Kris, why don’t you just ban any of the kids being on ‘Ellen,’ but I didn’t,” the 72-year-old revealed in a deleted scene from “Big Brother VIP Australia” earlier this month. “I thought, ‘I don’t want to get involved in that.

    Justin Houston had made no secret of his zeal for reaching 100 career sacks, a milestone the Ravens linebacker achieved in the team’s loss to the Miami Dolphins. He collected the jersey of the quarterback he dropped, Jacoby Brissett, and made plans to frame it. But his son, Junior, allowed him little time to bask in the achievement. “He had been on my head about getting to the 100-sack club,” Houston said. “He was happy. But I’ve still got more work to do, so he’s not too happy. He’s going to work the crap out of me. We’ve still got more goals to reach.” How many sacks, exactly, is this grade-school taskmaster expecting from his 32-year-old father? “One hundred and thirty,” Houston said, laughing. “He said you can’t retire until you get to 130. So I’m praying that somehow, God will make that happen.” For a moment, Houston’s sack seemed to take on a darker tone as Brissett, his former teammate with the Indianapolis Colts, writhed on the field, clutching his knee. But Brissett walked...

    The Chiefs have some ugly games remaining on their schedule, which may keep them from playing football in January After an embarrassing beatdown at the hands of the Tennessee Titans, the Kansas City Chiefs sit at 3-4, a far cry from the hopes they had of going 17-0. However, losing the chance to be an undefeated team is not what Kansas City fans are worried about. It is the waning chances to make the playoffs that have Chiefs Kingdom really up in arms.Looking at the schedule, the playoffs seem unlikelyOf the 10 games left on the Chiefs’ schedule, seven are against legitimate playoff contenders. There is a game against the New York Giants next week that the red and gold do not need to worry about, and two games against the dysfunctional Denver Broncos remaining, but the rest of the games are potential losses. Kansas City plays both the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys in the next four weeks. Both teams are not just shooting for the playoffs, but for the Super Bowl. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers...

    LET'S be honest - we have a hard enough time organising presents for our own kids' birthdays that anyone beyond our immediately family is lucky if they get a card.

    In this article JNJ MRNA BNTX PFE VIDEO4:2404:24Merck could seek emergency FDA nod for Covid pill this week: GottliebSquawk BoxDr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC on Monday that unlike in 2020 he fully expects families and friends to gather around the holidays this year. He also suggested there are ways to do so that can minimize Covid risk. "Nothing is going to stop us from getting together, and we're going to be getting together for Thanksgiving and we're going to be getting together for Christmas," the former Food and Drug Administration commissioner said on "Squawk Box." He's now on the board of Covid vaccine maker Pfizer.

"We've just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we're going to do at a particular time," Fauci said on "Face the Nation," referring to...
    CHICAGO — Community leaders and advocates are cautiously optimistic about a new city plan to support programs preventing sex trafficking and intimate-partner violence, saying it’s the first time they’ve seen City Hall show interest in the issue. But the plan lacks specificity, and experts who have been doing this work for years wonder if the $25 million earmarked for the program is enough funding to make a difference. The plan also doesn’t offer solutions to a key problem local leaders long have overlooked: What is the city doing to find dozens of its missing Black women? Rev. Robin Hood, who runs Mothers Opposed To Violence Everywhere with his wife, Louvenia, has worked to keep the spotlight on the more than 50 cases of missing or murdered Black women that have not been solved. “I think $25 million is a good start, but it has to reach the right groups, especially the youth who are affected most,” Hood said. “I applaud [Mayor Lori Lightfoot] for opening the door to these conversations, but we need more.” Lightfoot unveiled her plan at...
    More than one in ten of Australia's shark, ray and ghost shark species are at risk of extinction, with experts warning 'urgent action' is needed to stop severe population declines. The new data comes from the first complete assessment of extinction risk, showing Australia is home to more than a quarter of the world's shark species, 12 per cent of which are at risk. 'While Australia's risk is considerably lower than the global level of 37 per cent, it does raise concern for the 39 Australian species assessed as having an elevated risk of extinction,' the study's lead author Peter Kyne says. The new data comes from the first complete assessment of extinction risk, showing Australia is home to more than a quarter of the world's shark species, 12 per cent of which are at risk 'Around Australia, many of our threatened sharks and rays are not commercially important so these are largely 'out of sight, out of mind', but they require protection at national, state and territory levels.'

'He's got these jealousy issues and he struggles from what Gabby called these "episodes," where he would hear things and hear voices and wouldn't sleep.

I want my freedom to live," the 67-year-old Stern said on his program . "I want to get out of the house. I want to go next door and play chess. I want to go take some pictures. This is bull****."

    Election fraud conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell had difficulty responding to questions during an interview with Australian Broadcasting Corporation correspondent Sarah Ferguson. At one point, Powell asked if the reporter worked for voting machine company Smartmatic, which is suing Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and Fox News for $2.7 billion. At another point, Powell threatened to end the interview after the reporter asked how she justified such a "basic factual error" as saying Smartmatic owns Dominion Voting Systems, the rival company that is suing Powell, Giuliani and Mike Lindell for $1.3 billion. "I'm going to stop this interview," Powell said before getting up and almost leaving. "These are facts," Ferguson replied. After the interview resumed, Ferguson summarized Powell's conspiracy theory. "What you're describing is a massive, countrywide fraud involving the FBI, the DOJ, the Department of Homeland Security, the organizations who certify elections, and on and on, all the way up to the attorney general. And thousand of local elections officials. Are you saying that thousands of Americans participated in a fraud?" Ferguson asked. "I'm saying that thousands of Americans had some role...
    James Bullard, president of the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank.Scott Eells | Bloomberg | Getty Images St. Louis Federal Reserve President James Bullard told CNBC that the central bank should begin curbing its monthly stimulus efforts soon and have the process wrapped up by the end of March to prevent the U.S. economy from overheating. Many Fed leaders believe the central bank should reduce the pace of its monthly purchases of $120 billion in Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities in a process known as tapering. Bullard said the Fed's purchases were appropriate in 2020 to support American business through the Covid-19 pandemic, but they now run the risk of creating bubbles in financial markets and runaway inflation. "We do have a new framework we did say that we would allow inflation to run above target for some time, but not this much above target," Bullard said of recent price increases in the U.S. economy. "So for that reason I think we want to get going on taper. Get the taper finished by the end of the first quarter...
    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) dismissed the need for mask mandates in the Sunshine State on Wednesday, emphasizing the importance of personal liberty while reminding reporters of scientific research showing cloth and surgical masks are relatively ineffective in blocking the transmission of exhaled aerosols. During a press conference in The Villages on Wednesday during which the governor announced the opening of another monoclonal antibody treatment center, a reporter asked DeSantis to explain his position on the role masks play in addressing the pandemic. “They should not be mandated. No government entity should force you to do that. That is your choice. If that’s something you believe provides you protection, no one is going to say anything to you. But that should not, absolutely not be mandated,” DeSantis said, adding that such mandates “obviously” cannot occur in the state of Florida under his leadership and that it is his view that masking should remain a personal choice. DeSantis continued, seemingly referring to recent studies suggesting that cloth and surgical masks are not an effective means of mitigation — at least not...

    AMBRIDGE (KDKA) – It was a moving memorial – literally and figuratively – honoring the lives of fallen police officers. The End of Watch Ride made two stops in western Pennsylvania on Saturday in Ambridge and Aliquippa. READ MORE: Gov. Tom Wolf Wants Lawmakers To Extend Opioid Emergency Declaration The group behind the ride is trying to keep the memory of those lost alive. From Washington to western Pennsylvania, it pays tribute to fallen officers lost in the line of duty, and on Saturday it remembered the lives of two local police chiefs who died within hours of one another. “It’s nice to know that their memory is going to be eternal,” said John Chickos, an Ambridge Police Department patrolman. The moving tribute features the names and faces of more than 300 police officers who died last year, including the late Ambridge interim police chief, Mark Romutis, and the late Aliquippa police chief Rob Sealock. Both died within hours of one another in April 2020, both from COVID-19. Those losses are still felt in their respective departments. “It was really...
    Joe Biden has told business owners struggling to hire staff that they need to pay better wages, as he seemed to concede that the pandemic increase in unemployment benefits was making it harder to find workers. The president was asked by an Ohio restaurant owner on Wednesday night, at a CNN town hall, how he planned to resolve the staffing crisis in his industry, and others. John Lanni, co-founder of Cincinnati-based Thunderdome Restaurant Group, which has 39 restaurants nationwide, said they were struggling to find workers. 'I think it really is a matter of people deciding now that they have opportunities to do other things and there's a shortage of employees; people are looking to make more money and to bargain,' said Biden. 'So I think your business and the tourist business is really going to be in a bind for a little while.' John Lanni, the co-owner of a restaurant group that has 39 venues across the country, on Wednesday night asked Joe Biden what the president could do to try and help him find more staff for...

    A child of Cuban refugees, who joined hundreds outside the White House on Saturday to demand President Joe Biden aid protesters there, condemned Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for their favorable stances on socialism. “It doesn’t work,” Barbara, the daughter of Cuban refugees, told Breitbart News about communism. That is why “we don’t want it in this country, and that is why we are fighting. It’s not a ‘Cuban people’ problem. This is a problem for everyone in this country, for everyone that can easily be affected by communism. Latin America, South America, you do not want this.” She explained the reason her husband came to the United States from Cuba is because there are no basic rights on the island. Barbara said, being in the U.S., “we take it for granted.” “It scared me when you have people on the left, here, saying how perfect [communism] is. How you have the Bernie Sanders, AOCs try to implement those stupid laws like [they] have in [Cuba]; that’s why we’re here,” she said. “You don’t see Americans going to Cuba...
    New York (CNN Business)The scourge of obnoxious robocalls has resumed after a brief dip during the early months of the pandemic. But a new prevention program developed by the Federal Communications Commission — which officially went into effect this week — could begin to offer some relief later this year. The program, called "Stir/Shaken," is a set of technical standards that mobile carriers are required to adopt to help prevent call "spoofing," a tactic used by robocallers to make an incoming call look like it's from your area code so you're more likely to pick up. Robocalls from spoofed numbers aren't just an annoyance, they're dangerous — capable of scamming people out of money or sensitive personal information such as Social Security numbers. Under the Stir/Shaken protocol, carriers are required to certify, with varying confidence levels, that calls really are coming from the numbers displayed on caller ID. The deadline for most big carriers to implement the standards was Wednesday and the major carriers have all said they've signed on. What its like to live in the robocall capital...
    Wireless companies have had until the last day of June to implement call authentication technology to stop robocalls. They must tell the Federal Communications Commission whether they are complying with the agency's requirements — risking possible penalties. An estimated 4 billion robocalls rung in on people's cellphones in the month of May alone — 12 calls per person on average, according to anti-fraud app company Youmail. The deadline comes under new Acting FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel, a lawyer who wants wireless carriers to know she's serious about cracking down. "Oh my gosh, they're so annoying," Rosenworcel said of robocalls to CBS News Consumer Investigative Correspondent Anna Werner. "We want to stop robocalls and make it easier for consumers to safely answer the phone." Rosenworcel said the new FCC regulation is a "crucial" step to stopping scammers. "What that means is when a call is being made, a carrier can tell that it really is the person who they say they are on the line," she said.

    The Heritage Foundation’s James Jay Carafano said Thursday that Vice President Kamala Harris’ planned trip to the U.S.-Mexico border was the “lamest form of damage control.” Carafano spoke with “Fox Business Tonight” host Brian Brenberg about the vice president’s trip and argued that she had primarily scheduled it to keep Republicans from complaining on Fox News that she hadn’t been to the border yet. (RELATED: ‘She Would Have Never Gone’ — Trump Weighs In On Report That Kamala Harris Will Visit The Southern Border After ‘Ignoring The Crisis’) WATCH: Carafano began by noting that Harris was going to visit El Paso, Texas, even though the majority of the illegal border crossings were actually taking place hundreds of miles away. “It does send an interesting message,” he said, adding, “But, look, let’s just be honest here, the purpose of this visit is so Republicans can’t go on Fox News and say Harris hasn’t been to the border. That’s it. This is the lamest form of damage control, it is the ultimate bare minimum.” “It’s like the captain of the...

    DENVER (CBS4) – After a long shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, people are anxious to hit the road and celebrate. But, the Colorado State Patrol wants you to remember you can’t celebrate if you never arrive. “Memorial Day weekend is kind of the unofficial kickoff of summer, and certainly after 2020 we appreciate that there’s a lot of folks that want to go traveling.

    MEXICO CITY (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Mexico said Monday, May 24,  it will buy Shell’s 50% share in the jointly-owned Deer Park refinery near Houston, Texas for about $600 million. The move comes as part of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s central policy to build, acquire or renovate oil refineries, in an era when most countries are trying to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. “We are going to stop buying fuel abroad… we will become self sufficient by 2023,” said López Obrador, who is spending about $9 billion to build a similar-size new refinery in his home state of Tabasco. In a statement, Shell wrote that “Shell Chemical L.P. will continue to operate its 100% owned Deer Park Chemicals facility located adjacent to the site.” “Shell did not plan to market its interest in the Deer Park refinery,” said Huibert Vigeveno, Shell’s Downstream Director. “However, following an unsolicited offer from Pemex, we have reached an agreement to transfer our interest in the partnership to them.” The Shell Oil Deer Park Refinery in Deer Park, Texas.

    The Olympic men's 100m has never looked so open heading into Tokyo and yet even in the most recent of Games in Rio it had never looked so predictable. But the Usain Bolt era of sprinting is over, with the Jamaican having dominated the sport across three Olympics after taking his first gold medal in Beijing then adding two more in London and Brazil before retiring a year later in 2017. Collateral damage of this era of Bolt supremacy hit United States the hardest, with the country entering Tokyo in danger of going four Games without a 100m gold medal for the first time in its history. With Usain Bolt having retired after winning in Rio, the men's 100m competition is wide open  Christian Coleman was the favourite to become the new sprint king but the American has been banned from competing at the Tokyo Olympics following an anti-doping suspension When Justin Gatlin took gold in Athens in 2004 at the age of just 22, it looked like USA would hold court in the discipline for the...
    Body-camera footage shows Stephanie Bottom being dragged and handcuffed when she said she didn't notice a North Carolina deputy's attempt to stop her. A Black Georgia librarian filed a federal lawsuit last month after she said North Carolina law enforcement officers pulled her by her hair, tore her rotator cuff, and unlawfully searched her purse and vehicle for going 10 miles over the speed limit. Stephanie Bottom, a librarian driving in Rowan County for her aunt’s funeral, attracted the attention of two different law enforcement agencies when she didn’t notice that a deputy trailing her had activated his blue lights, Bottom’s attorneys alleged in the lawsuit. When she did, she looked for a safe place to pull over because she was so afraid of police that she didn’t want to stop on the side of the interstate, according to the suit initially discovered by The Charlotte Observer. Recently-released body camera footage shows how officers responded when they got Bottom to stop.  Both the Rowan County Sheriff's Office and the Salisbury Police Department are named in the suit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.

    Dustin Poirier on UFC 264: ‘I’m going to stop Conor again’ Daniel Cunningham April 28, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditOn July 10th at UFC 264, we will likely see the fight that will generate the most PPV buys for the promotion in 2021. That fight is the trilogy fight between “The Notorious” Conor McGregor (22-5) and “The Diamond” Dustin Poirier (27-6, 1 NC). McGregor and Poirier fought for the second time back in January at UFC 257. The fight started out well for McGregor who won the first round on all three judges scorecards. Poirier admitted after the fight that McGregor stunned him pretty good in the first round. However, McGregor failed to follow up and the fight continued into the second round. While McGregor got the better of the first round, Poirier started doing damage to McGregor’s leg. McGregor took more of a boxing approach and was extremely heavy on his front leg. Poirier started working his calf kicks later in the round and they really paid off in the second round. One...

    Taking antihistamines to avoid allergies before going running can stop you from getting fit, according to new research. Scientists found the common drugs, used to prevent allergies such as hayfever, prevent some of the benefits of exercise happening in the body. A senior author on the study, sport scientist Professor Dr Wim Derave, said it was surprising how significantly the beneficial effects of exercise were blocked in those who took antihistamines. A new study has found taking antihistamines before a run could prevent some of the benefits of exercise happening in the body. Picture: Stock In an interview with science magazine Inverse, he said: 'They sweated just as much, they exercised just as much, and so there was nothing different - they couldn't see it either. 'The beneficial effects were not taking place, although they thought and they hoped that they would.' Most scientific research before this study has focussed on the benefits of antihistamines in stopping the unpleasant symptoms caused by allergies such as having a blocked nose, sneezing or hives.

    The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is introducing a new database all voice providers will have to use to allow the agency to track the work they’re doing to stop robocalls. Starting September 28th, 2021, phone companies will be required to block any incoming traffic from providers not listed in the Robocall Mitigation Database. In particular, any companies that got an extension to implement STIR/SHAKEN, a protocol that allows a carrier to verify a caller ID before it reaches its intended recipient, will have to file detailed reports with the agency on their progress towards putting the technology in place. “Protecting consumers from scammers that use robocall and spoofing tools is a top priority,” said Acting FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel. “To succeed, we not only need an all-hands-on-deck response from government, but we need industry commitment and focus. Our message to providers is clear: certify under penalty of perjury the steps you are taking to stop illegal robocalls, or we will block your calls.” It’s not clear how the FCC will validate the reports that end up in the database,...
    Erin Coates, The Western Journal April 15, 2021 0 Comments The chief operating officer and chief financial officer in the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office warned that “[s]omeone is going to get hurt” if President Joe Biden continues to spread lies about Georgia’s new voting law. In an Op-Ed for The Washington Post, Gabriel Sterling wrote about the similarities between the lies Biden is spreading about Georgia’s new election law and what he called the misinformation spread by President Donald Trump after the 2020 election. “Though I have not received any threats yet, thankfully, that same foreboding is creeping up again as the president of the United States and others once again spread lies about what is going on in Georgia,” Sterling wrote. “So I plead with the president once again: Someone is going to get hurt. Your words matter. The facts matter.” He pointed out that Biden falsely claimed that Georgia’s new legislation decreased early voting hours. “Among the outrageous parts of this new state law, it ends voting hours early so working people can’t cast their vote...
    Gabriel Sterling, the chief operating officer and chief financial officer for the Georgia secretary of state's office, said he has the same sense of "foreboding" he had after November's election in the months leading up to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.  And once again, he claimed, it is due to "misinformation" coming from an American president. In a new Washington Post op-ed, Sterling recalled how he faced death threats and was concerned about violence as then-President Trump made claims about the election. He warned that this and worse could happen again if President Biden does not change his rhetoric about Georgia's new voting law.

    A MIGRANT at the southern border warned that the current surge in asylum seekers is "never going to stop" as the White House blames Donald Trump for the growing crisis. As an influx of asylum seekers progress to the US-Mexico border, President Joe Biden's administration along with other Democratic leaders continue to place the blame on the previous administration for the chaos. 8There's been a surge in undocumented immigrants attempting to enter the US at the southern borderCredit: Reuters On Sunday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejando Mayorkas blamed the Trump administration for the current border crisis, just a week after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did the same. In an interview with CNN's State of the Union, host Dana Bash pressed Mayorkas on the reported conditions at the border facilities, noting hundreds of minors have remained in them for longer periods than legally acceptable. "Dana, we will not abandon our values and our principles, we will not abandon the needs of vulnerable children. That is what this is all about," Mayorkas responded.

    A migrant who crossed into Texas from Mexico has warned that the flood of asylum seekers will only continue to worsen under Joe Biden's relaxed immigration policies.   The migrant, who was not named, spoke to Fox News on Friday in El Paso after being apprehended by Customs and Border Protection (CBP).   Asked if he believes more migrants will come to the US under the Biden administration, he said with a shrug: 'It's not going to stop, ever. It's not going to stop.'  The comments came after records revealed that the CBP apprehended more than 100,000 migrants at the border in February, compared to just 16,182 in April 2020 when migration slowed drastically amid the coronavirus pandemic.   Biden officials are blaming the former Trump administration for the burgeoning border crisis - which has seen the number of unaccompanied minors in custody swell to over 15,000.  A senior CBP source told Fox News that Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector are now considering releasing migrants into the US without an official Notice to Appear, a process that normally takes hours for...
