    SOME families eligible for child tax credits will get a lump sum of $1,800 per child next month - with another to come in 2022. The payments are for those who aren't required to file a tax return for 2019 or 2020, meaning they'll need to claim the child tax credits manually. 1Use the GetCTC online tool to claim your cash In fact, non-filers have until November 15 to avoid missing out on the advance payments for 2021. The GetCTC.org tool debuted as a collaboration between the White House, the US Treasury, and Code for America, a nonprofit tech organization. Using the tool, you'll need your Social Security number or an individual taxpayer ID number (ITIN). The portal was developed to make it easier for families to receive monthly child tax credit payments. Families who use the tool by the November 15 deadline will then receive all of the 2021 payments on December 15, totaling up to $1,800 per child. The remaining half will then be issued next year.

    Kicking off a soggy start to November, more rain is headed to the Bay Area this weekend and another atmospheric river, weaker than the Oct. 24 storm that dumped record-breaking rainfall totals on the region, could arrive next week. A series of weaker storms brought light rain to the Bay this week, starting on Monday. As of Thursday at 5:30 a.m., 24-hour precipitation totals include: 0.84 inches of rain at Middle Peak at Mount Tamalpais, 0.28 inches in Santa Rosa, 0.16 inches in Kentfield, 0.15 inches at the Oakland international airport, 0.14 inches in downtown San Francisco, and 0.07 inches in San Jose and Fremont.

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- There's already a crowded field of candidates running for mayor of Los Angeles, and there could be one more - real estate developer Rick Caruso.Los Angeles Magazine reports Caruso hired a political consulting firm that in the past has worked with Hillary Clinton, Gov. Gavin Newsom, and Vice President Kamala Harris as clients."He's definitely going to approach things with a different attitude and a different political bent than most of the main stream candidates in the race right now," said former assemblyman and political analyst Mike Gatto.Mayor Eric Garcetti is termed out and waiting on his pending nomination as U.S. ambassador to India, a process that could take months.As the list of candidates grows, Gatto feels the main issue is homelessness."Whoever runs for mayor has got to have a plan it's got to be credible, it's got to be one that the people can get behind and support," he added.L.A.

    Two longtime Democratic congressmen announced Monday they will not seek re-election next year, putting the pressure on Speaker Nancy Pelosi to keep control of the House in her party's hands.  Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Doyle and North Carolina Congressman David Price will retire.  The two men each have more than 20 years experience on Capitol Hill.  'While it is time for me to retire, it is no time to flag in our efforts to secure a 'more perfect union' and to protect and expand our democracy.

    Steam rises from the Miller coal Power Plant in Adamsville, Alabama on April 13, 2021. ANDREW CABALLERO-REYNOLDS/AFP via Getty Images A new study estimated that carbon dioxide emissions from 3.5 Americans in their lifetimes could kill a person.  By 2100, 83 million people are projected to die if the global temperature continues rising at its current rate. This is the first study of its kind to count deaths related to rising temperatures caused by carbon emissions.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. In the first study of its kind to calculate the mortality cost of carbon, it's estimated that carbon emissions from 3.5 Americans in their lifetime could lead to the death of one person due to rising global temperatures. Using 2020 as a baseline, the study — published Thursday in the scientific journal Nature — calculated that adding  4,434 metric tons of carbon dioxide to the environment leads to one death globally. This amount is equivalent to how much emissions 3.5 average Americans produce in a lifetime, wrote author Daniel Bressler, a researcher from Columbia University's...
    NASA is set to venture to the far side of the moon for the first time in preparation of sending the first woman and next man to the lunar surface in 2024. The American space agency announced Thursday it selected three new scientific investigation payloads that will land in the region to learn more about the potential astronaut destination. The far side, or dark side, of the moon has only been explored by China's Chang'e 4-mission in 2019 and NASA wants to learn more before putting human boots in the region. The payloads will study lunar swirls, seismic activity and the heat flow and electrical conductivity of the interior in Schrödinger basin.

    The Centers for Disease Control is predicting that the Coronavirus death rate will fall dramatically over the next few weeks, as more states incentivize vaccinations. In its most recent forecasts, the CDC predicted that there will be a total of 596,000 to 606,000 COVID-19 deaths in the United States by June 19. While that may sound grim, the US has already reported a total of 594,430 deaths as of Sunday, meaning there could be as few as 2,000, or up to 12,000 more deaths in the next three weeks. It is a marked difference to the pandemic high of 5,443 deaths were recorded in just one day on February 12, 2021. The current rolling seven-day average is 659 daily deaths. The death rate is also declining, and should soon level out, according to the CDC's predictions Daily coronavirus cases in the United States is declining, with the Centers for Disease Control predicting it will continue to go down over the course of the month The slower death rate may be attributed to more people getting vaccinated against the...
    (CNN)The likelihood that the earth's average temperature will at least temporarily breach a crucial tipping point is rising, according to the world's leading weather and climate organization.The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said Thursday there is now about a 40% chance that the annual average global temperature will temporarily reach 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels in at least one of the next five years. It added that the chances of the threshold being breached are increasing with time.The 1.5-degree marker has been identified by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as a key tipping point beyond which the risk of extreme drought, wildfires, floods and food shortages will increase dramatically. Deadly flooding. Zombie fires. A massive iceberg.

    Weekly COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. could decline by as much as 71 percent, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now predicts.  CDC's latest forecasts suggest that between 1,200 and 4,600 people will die of COVID-19 during the week ending in June 12. By then, the agency predicts that the overall death toll could rise to somewhere between 594,000 and 604,000.   That would be a decrease of more than 70 percent from the more than 4,000 people who died of Covid last week in the U.S.  To-date, more than 587,000 Americans have died of coronavirus since the pandemic began. Deaths rose Tuesday with 857 new fatalities, driving the seven-day rolling average up from about 600 to 626.  It comes as vaccines drive down new infections, hospitalizations and deaths nationwide. The U.S. recorded fewer than 30,000 new infections on Tuesday for the fourth day in a row, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.    In further evidence that the shots are working, states with high rates of vaccination like Vermont and Massachusetts have seen rapid declines in weekly cases...
    (CNN)Two leading US officials say fully vaccinated Americans may get more guidance in just a matter of days on what they can safely do. Part of that guidance is going to be on outdoor mask use, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday. "In the next few days very likely, the (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) will be coming out with updating their guidelines of what people who are vaccinated can do and even some who are not vaccinated," he told CNN. Officials say the US is getting closer to the finish line for coronavirus. What does that mean? There will be more guidelines coming out "sooner or later" on things like travel, Fauci said, but highlighted that right now, the thing that's on top of people's minds is what they can do outdoors. Outdoor activities carry a much lower Covid-19 risk, he said, and for Americans who are fully vaccinated, that risk level drops even further. And with warmer weather now here, Fauci said he expects guidance on outdoor activities to be released soon.Read MoreAndy Slavitt, White House senior adviser...
    The EPR reactor built by the French Areva in Finland has finally received the green light for loading nuclear fuel before a commercial start in sight next year, with more of a decade delay. The Finnish nuclear safety authority (STUK) on Friday gave its authorization for this loading in the Olkiluoto 3 reactor (OL3), synonymous with the next first “hot” tests. A major step for this site undermined by delays and financial drifts. Read also: EPR in Finland: Areva close to ending its financial nightmare Fuel loading will start “before the end of March”, announced for its part the French nuclear group Areva SA, responsible for this very long project on an island in the southwest of Finland. Initially entrusted to a consortium between the former French flagship and the German Siemens, the construction of the Finnish EPR began in 2005. It was the first reactor of this type to be built and the symbol of what was supposed to be to be at the time a “Renaissance” of the civilian atom, which has since remained largely a dead...

    An illustration of NASA’s Perseverance rover landing safely on Mars. Once every couple of years, Mars and Earth get into a position where probes launched from planet #3 can get to planet #4 with a minimum of time and energy. The last time that happened, in 2020, three different probes from three different nations all lined up to take advantage of the relatively rapid transit times. Though the departure dates weren’t quite so close together, all three are about to make their arrival within just an eleven day window.  On Feb. 9, the “Hope” probe from the United Arab Emirates—not the first nation that comes to mind when you think of interplanetary space travel—will enter orbit. Just one day later on Feb. 10, China’s Tianwen-1 mission arrives. That mission includes both an orbiter and a lander, though the lander isn’t set to touch down until May. Finally, NASA’s latest rover, Perseverance heads for red soil on Feb. 18 using NASA’s incredible “Sky Crane” landing system. And as all this Mars not-so-madness is going on, there’s a lot more happening back on Earth that could...
    (CNN)Covid-19 cases in the US may be trending in the right direction, but experts say there's still reason to worry.For one, there are new variants circulating in the US that are threatening another surge and could make even everyday activities more dangerous.

Watch the entire CNN coronavirus town hall"The variants that have been identified recently seem to spread more easily," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Wednesday.

    (CNN)The United States could face as many as 100,000 more Covid-19 deaths in less than a month, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, although the CDC's new leader offered a glimmer of hope, saying that "healthier days lie ahead."The nation reported more than 4,000 Covid-19 deaths Wednesday, only the third day ever to cross that threshold, bringing the death toll to at least 406,001 people, according to the Johns Hopkins tracking data.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio has warned that New York City is on track to run out of COVID-19 vaccines next week, as he begged the federal government to send more doses and announced the Big Apple is on target to reach its goal of one million shots in arms by the end of the month.  Speaking at his daily press briefing, de Blasio said Wednesday he has 'no patience' for the federal government and the vaccine manufacturers for the slow rollout of shots and demanded the Trump administration releases the second doses currently being held back from states.  The mayor revealed that the New York Yankees has followed the Mets in agreeing to work with the city to turn its stadium into a 24/7 mass vaccination site, while new round the clock sites are springing up across the five boroughs.  Another 28,599 doses were administered to New Yorkers Tuesday, taking the total number of shots in arms to 267,923, with 237,991 people having got the first dose and 29,932 the second, the city's health department data shows Wednesday.

    Capitol police have briefed House Democrats on three more plots to attack the US Capitol over the coming days, as the as FBI warns of armed protests in ALL 50 states if Trump is removed before Inauguration Day. The chilling new threats to the seat of US democracy not a week after the deadly attack by a MAGA mob killed five, was delivered during a private call and described potentially 'the largest armed protest ever to take place on American soil'. The second attack is billed as beginning as a protest in honor of Ashlie Babbitt, the Air Force veteran shot dead inside the Capitol on Wednesday while trying to sneak inside the Speaker's Lobby. With Joe Biden's inauguration fast approaching in nine days, Washington, DC, and cities around the US are bracing for violent protests similar to that which left five people dead at the Capitol last week.

    There are nine people who have been on the court to start four different games at Staples Center so far this season. Only eight of them are players. The other is referee Scott Foster. There might be no better way to explain how and why the NBA has changed the travel rules for officials this year than Foster’s work schedule to this point. He was scheduled to work a game in Houston on Dec. 23, only to see the matchup called off when the Rockets didn’t have enough people available to play in accordance with the league’s health and safety protocols regarding the coronavirus. From there, Foster flew to Los Angeles. He worked four games in six days, and never left L.A. in that span. That simply would have never happened in past years, when the policy typically was that officials would go at least 13 days between working games in the same city and six days between seeing the same team after reffing one of its games. Those rules will almost certainly come back when the world returns to...

    VIDEO3:3703:37Airbnb shares more than double in IPO—Four experts on what's next for the companyTrading Nation Airbnb made its public debut on the Nasdaq on Thursday.

Brian Chesky, Airbnb CEO, lays out what he sees as a bright future for the company and the travel industry. "Travel is going to be back. And I think that if our IPO represents anything, I think it represents that our hosts are coming back, and that travel is coming back.

    President Trump's business has an active bank account in China and has paid more than $188,000 in taxes to the government in Beijing - much more than the $750 in taxes that he paid to Uncle Sam in both 2016 and 2017. Trump paid taxes to the Chinese government while he pursued licensing deals there between 2013 and 2015, according to tax records obtained by The New York Times. While Trump has paid into the Chinese treasury, he paid no federal income taxes in 10 of the 15 years preceding his White House run, according to records obtained by the Times. The details of the tax filings published last month complicate Trump’s description of himself as a shrewd and patriotic businessman, revealing instead a series of financial losses and income from abroad that could come into conflict with his responsibilities as president.   President Trump (seen above with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing in November 2017) has a bank account in China and has paid more than $188,000 in taxes to the government there, according to records Some...
    (CNN)With independent political handicappers revising upwards the likelihood of Joe Biden winning the presidency and Democratic gains in the Senate and House in recent days, there is now a reasonable chance that we may be looking at a major landslide up and down the ballot in two weeks' time.Which would mean all the things we all know about: A Biden presidency with his party in charge of the Senate and with an expanded majority in the House.

    The home in Frederick where Chris Watts killed his pregnant wife, Shanann, in August 2018 before taking the lives of Celeste and Bella, their two young daughters, is currently being viewed by more people than ever before. But although the property, located at 2825 Saratoga Trail, spent well over a year for sale, it's now been taken off the market — and that's just as well, since a disturbing new movie about the tragedy creates even more doubts that anyone would ever want to live within its walls again. On September 30, Netflix launched American Murder: The Family Next Door, a documentary about the slayings that's assembled almost entirely of video or images shared online by Shanann or footage from the investigation into her disappearance, including body-camera clips that seem to capture every inch of the living space. The house is practically another character in a film that chillingly transforms the roomy, tastefully appointed suburban spread into a backdrop for evil at its purest. In other words, it's not exactly a great advertisement for potential buyers, who've passed up many...

    The NYC Schools Chancellor warned Thursday that the city's schools will not be able to reopen unless another 2,500 teachers are recruited, hired, and trained in the next 12 days. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously said that the city will need to bring in 2,000 additional teachers, bringing the total number needed to 4,500 if in-class and at-home live learning was to be successful.  Chancellor Richard Carranza told parents leaders on Wednesday night that talks were underway with City University of New York to hire laid-off adjunct professors and graduate students, yet no further details were offered on how the mass hiring is expected to take place in less than two weeks. Even if that number is hit, some warned that thousands more will still be needed to ensure that middle schools and high schools can properly open. The news was met with anger from parents who learned Thursday morning that the NYC school reopen date had been pushed back once again due to de Blasio's fears that there aren’t enough teachers to handle both in-class and at-home...

    (CNN) — Another 134,000 people could die in the US from Covid-19 by December if no further safety measures are mandated — and the actual number probably would be much worse if mandates are relaxed, researchers say. The projection by the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation comes with a silver lining: About 70,000 of those lives would be saved if many more Americans wore masks, the institute’s leader said. “It really depends on what our leaders do, (both) as individuals, and what governments do,” the IHME’s chief, Dr. Chris Murray, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday night. At least 176,000 people have died of Covid-19 in the US since the pandemic began, and more than 5.6 million have been infected, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. IHME projected that if nothing about the nation’s approach to prevention changed, death rates would dip in September but rise later in the fall, and the total would reach about 310,000 by December 1. But changes in behavior would affect the projection, he said: If governments ease current social distancing restrictions and...
    (CNN)More than 130,000 people could die over the next few months from Covid-19 if leaders across the US don't implement safety measures like mask mandates heading into fall, researchers say.If mask use increases from 53% to 95%, it could save almost 70,000 lives, according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. "It really depends on what our leaders do," Dr. Chris Murray, the head of the institute, said. As Florida sets records for Covid-19 cases, health authorities often fail to do contact tracingAt least 175,409 Americans have died since the pandemic began, a number the institute projects could reach nearly 310,000 by December 1. The new prediction is about 15,000 deaths higher than their earlier forecast from two weeks ago due to several factors, Murray said."In some states, California is a good example, cases peaked, they're coming down but deaths haven't," Murray told CNN's Anderson Cooper Friday night.

    (CNN) — First, the good news: The numbers of new Covid-19 cases each day in about 27 states have generally plateaued this past week compared to the previous week. Now, the bad news: “Our levels are still far too high,” said Dr. Megan Ranney, an emergency physician at Lifespan Health System and associate professor at Brown University. “We need those masks. We need those large social gatherings, honestly, shut down for the time being, until our country can come up with a comprehensive national strategy to get this virus under control.” More than 4.6 million Americans have been infected with Covid-19, and more than 154,000 have died from the disease, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The relentless death toll is projected to reach 173,000 by August 22, according to a new composite forecast from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s an average of almost 1,000 US deaths every day for the next 30 days.

    (CNN)The US has reported more deaths linked to coronavirus than anywhere else in the world and updated models show 20,000 more Americans could die in just the next three weeks. The ensemble forecast, published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention projects more than 173,000 American deaths by August 22. At least 154,447 Americans have died since the beginning of the pandemic. Across the country, local leaders and public health experts have urged residents not to let their guard down as social gatherings, especially among younger groups, are fueling the spread of the virus. While some states across the South seem to be nearing their peak, experts say others, including in the Midwest, are raising new concern.

    The Trump administration is reportedly attempting to block billions of federal dollars for coronavirus testing and contact tracing in the next round of stimulus. Administration officials are wrangling with Republican senators over the provisions in the GOP stimulus bill, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is set to unveil this week, according to the Washington Post. Unnamed people involved in the talks told the Post that the administration's position has angered some Republican senators, who are trying to push back and get the additional funding in the bill. At issue is money that would go to states to test and trace, as well as billions that would go to the Pentagon and State Department to address the pandemic at home and abroad.

    Coronavirus — An outbreak of COVID-19 at San Quentin State Prison halted plans by the California Department of Corrections to transfer some San Quentin inmates to North Kern State Prison. A total of 1,011 cases have been confirmed in the inmate population as of Monday, and 89 staff members have also tested positive. The outbreak was likely caused by a transfer of prisoners in May from a prison in Chino. Activists held a Zoom meeting at the city hall on Saturday to discuss what can be done to curb the increase. “I am in a lower bunk,” said an inmate. “The person next to me in the next bunk is about two feet away. It’s more challenging for my bunkee, who’s in the top bunk. He is inches from the person in the next upper bunk. “ Many on Zoom’s call want early release for prisoners nearing the end of their sentence.
    Since the $2.2 trillion stimulus package known as the CARES Act passed in March, Americans who lost their jobs have been able to collect an additional $600 a week in unemployment benefits on top of what their states have distributed. That extra money is set to expire at the end of next month if lawmakers fail to act. The boost in unemployment benefits “was a really important thing to do when we were closing the economy back in March,” Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia said Wednesday on CNBC. “I don’t think that the $600 benefit is the answer going forward,” he added. Josh Bivens, director of research at the Economic Policy Institute, a left-leaning think tank, couldn’t disagree more. Given that approximately 10% to 15% of U.S. GDP is driven by consumption, allowing those benefits to expire will strip more than 20 million Americans of a total of nearly $842 billion to spend, according to Bivens’ calculations using data released Friday by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. “ ‘Cutting off a policy support that helps households maintain...
