    Portland's police department has warned residents of the woke but crime-ravaged Oregon city to expect delays in cops answering all but the most serious 911 calls.    On Monday, Portland Police were only responding to priority 1 and priority 2 calls - codes that refer to incidents that are life-threatening or with a potential for physical injury, as well as major property crimes.  It came in the wake of a busy day for cops in the city, which included two carjackings, one of which ended with police shooting an armed suspect dead.  Responses to any crime-in-progress that didn't pose an immediate threat to persons or property were 'delayed,' the department tweeted. Ongoing staff shortages were also blamed for the slump in emergency services provision.  The ominous announcement came as the city of roses hit an all-time high in homicides. The 80 murder milestone reached on Friday far surpasses Portland's record of 67, attained in 1987, and is likely to rise before 2021 comes to an end in 24 days.  That number has been ramping steadily - in 2020, 53 homicides were...
    CNN's president Jeff Zucker has told staff at the network that they will continue investigating fired anchor Chris Cuomo's behavior after a woman at another network accused him of historic sexual misconduct - and the 51-year-old quit his radio show. Cuomo was fired on Saturday after it emerged that he had provided more substantial help to the team working for his embattled brother, Governor Andrew Cuomo, than he had previously admitted. Andrew, 63, resigned as governor of New York in August. CNN on Saturday said that Cuomo was being fired due to his undisclosed actions in support of his brother, in breach of journalistic ethics. They also said that 'additional information' contributed to the decision - which is now known to be allegations of sexual misconduct made last week by a former colleague of Cuomo's when he worked at ABC News, from 2006-13. Zucker on Monday told staff the allegations of sexual misconduct would be thoroughly investigated.  'Chris had been much more deeply involved than we had ever known, and than he'd ever told us,' Zucker told employees, according to...
    The 'erratic' chief executive of online mortgage broker Better.com who callously fired 900 workers in a Zoom call just three weeks before Christmas is married to a cryptocurrency mining firm executive and lives a lavish lifestyle in Manhattan's trendy Tribeca neighborhood - where he once rented a $17,000-a-month apartment.  Vishal Garg, 43, and his wife, Sarita James, live in Tribeca neighborhood - one of Manhattan's priciest zip codes - with their three children and foster dogs and don't appear to own any properties in their own names, according to property records.  Garg said in an online profile that the family 'continues to search for their dream home'. The family rented a $17,000-a-month three bedroom, three bathroom apartment near their offices at 7 World Trade Center 'so they could walk to work'.  The online mortgage executive - who once threatened to staple a former business partner to the wall and burn him alive - axed 9% of Better's workforce last Wednesday including its entire diversity, equity and inclusion team, which deals with complaints about racism and sexism in the workplace.

Juan Alessi, 72, had revealed Maxwell's demanding high-handed behavior as well as he treatment of staff when he had worked for Epstein at his Palm Beach Mansion between 1990 and 2002.  Alessi, a maintenance worker and house manager, said that Maxwell had conducted herself as the 'lady of the house' and even handed out a 58-page manual with rules for staff on everything from how to address her and Epstein as well as how to attend to them and their guests. 'Checklists will assist you in making sure every task has been completed and not even the smallest detail has been overlooked,' the book read. Staffers also had to run the house 'like a five-star hotel' which included washing Epstein's car, stuffing it with $100 bills, and avoiding eye contact with him as Maxwell claimed he detested it. Maxwell also forbade the staff from fraternizing with their guests and told them to 'see nothing, hear nothing say nothing' unless they had been...

    Video of former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo being deposed for eleven hours over claims he sexually harassed staff has been released by Attorney General Letitia James, along with videos of all of the women who accused him.  The 11-hour footage was put online by James on Monday and shows Cuomo, 63, sipping coffee from a Dunkin Donuts cup, sitting back in his chair, positioning his reading glasses and becoming agitated as attorneys ask him repeated questions about whether or not he ever touched, kissed, hugged or spoke to staff inappropriately.  Cuomo has been charged with one count of misdemeanor forcible touching for allegedly groping the breast of Brittany Commisso, a former aide and one of the ten women in AG James' report. He is due in court in January in Albany.  The charge came after AG James released her report in August that claimed he was a serial sex abuser.   The deposition was part of the investigation that produced that report.

    THERE are loads of reasons why Aldi is one of our favourite places to shop - and it's not just the cheap prices that keeps sucking us in. In fact, the German supermarket chain - made popular by its speedy check-out and no-fuss shopping - has become a go-to for many, but there are some things we should all know. 2Aldi workers have revealed what you should know about shopping in-storeCredit: Getty The check-out is different A former employee previously revealed the reason why Aldi staff move at super-speed when scanning your items. And it's because they once had scanning targets to meet - although this isn't the case anymore.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump each phoned in 2018 to give assurances that they could work together after he met with President Trump about serving as chief of staff – despite his past role prosecuting Kushner's father, Charles. Christie met with Trump as the president was considering pushing out chief of staff John Kelly – one of a line of chiefs the president hire and then sour upon. Trump ultimately went through four of them.  Christie met with Trump in December 2018 to discuss the job, only to withdraw himself from consideration for what he said publicly were family reasons. (He said at the time that 'now is not the right time for me or my family to undertake this serious assignment.' According to his new book, Republican Rescue, Trump offered him the job. Among the reasons he turned it down was a bad reaction when someone leaked word of his meeting with the president. Trump would later admit it was he who put out the information, Christie writes, the Daily Beast reported...

    Just eight per cent of Manhattan white collar workers are back in their offices five days a week, according to a new survey, which also found that 22 per cent of Wall Street firms are planning to reduce their workforces in New York City in the next five years. The worrying figures and prediction comes amid a surge in violent crime and an uptick in firms moving employees to Texas and Florida.

    Donald Trump aide Johnny McEntee rose from carrying the president's bags to assume a powerful as an ultra-loyalist who oversaw purges at executive agencies meant to weed out 'anti-Trumpers' and boosted Trump's election overturn effort, according to a new book. McEntee, 31, a former University of Connecticut football quarterback, had premier access to Trump in the early days at the White House, acting as Trump's 'body man' by carrying bags and other necessities.  He would later get booted by former chief of staff John Kelly after a background check turned up gambling issues.

    The coronavirus pandemic’s shake-up of the U.S. economy still hasn’t fully resettled, and it’s clearly visible in reporting on businesses looking for workers and workers looking for jobs. On the one hand, top retailers say their industry is heading into its busiest time of the year desperate for more workers—so much so that some top retailers are raising pay or offering signing bonuses or referral bonuses. On the flip side, many job seekers say they’re not getting interviews—let alone offers—for jobs they’re well-qualified to do, including in retail. The reasons people might hesitate to go back to retail jobs aren’t hard to figure right now: Retail workers are exposed to a lot of people, and many have contracted COVID-19 on the job. Customers have assaulted workers in disputes over mask-wearing and other public health precautions. Top executives and shareholders have been handed large piles of cash while workers saw their meager hazard pay cut while the pandemic was still raging. “A lot of people do not want to work in retail right now—I really, really see it,” a personal shopper at Bergdorf Goodman told...

    Commentary on Pac-12 developments on and off the field … Rising: Pac-12 expansion decision After news broke in July that Texas and Oklahoma were joining the SEC, Washington State president Kirk Schulz told the Hotline that the SEC’s “predatory” moved had unified the other conferences “in a way that nothing else could have, in terms of working together.” The observation proved spot on weeks later with the formation of the alliance between the ACC, Big Ten and Pac-12. Turns out, it wasn’t Schulz’s only prescient comment in that interview. When asked about the potential for the Pac-12 to add members, Schulz, who previously served as Kansas State’s president, spoke of the need for “institutional fit.” To join the Pac-12, a school needed to fit not only athletically but financially, academically, culturally and geographically. A few weeks later, the conference announced it would not seek new members. Fans of the remaining Big 12 schools  were mystified: How could the likes of Baylor, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Kansas State not be good enough? It took a few months, but we have...
    The family of an eight-year-old girl who was shot and killed by police outside of a high school game in Philadelphia is suing the officers responsible for her death, claiming they were improperly trained and shot with the 'intent to kill.' The mother and siblings of Fanta Bility say the three officers involved in her death violated her constitutional rights by killing her without due process, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Named in the lawsuit is the Sharon Hill Police Department, chief Joseph J. Kelly, Jr. and the three officers who fired shots - though one is listed as 'John Doe' because the family has not yet learned his identity, the lawsuit says. The officers were responding to unrelated gunfire outside of a football game at Academy Park High School in Sharon Hill, on the outskirts of Philadelphia. They were across the stadium exit when they shot back, according to the Delaware County District Attorney's Office, which has convened a grand jury to decide whether to charge the officers criminally. Fanta Bility, 8, 'succumbed...
    Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have been sued over alleged racist and homophobic abuse inflicted on two staffers by their former household security boss, which is said to have included a dig at Meghan Markle.    Mia King, a black LGBR woman who served as a security operations assistant, and a John Doe, a gay and disabled man who worked as a household operations manager, claimed they were subject to racist and homophobic abuse by the billionaire couple's former head of security Liam Booth, Business Insider reports.    In their twin lawsuit, filed in San Francisco County, King said Booth would often call her 'ghetto' and complain that Meghan Markle, who is bi-racial, 'polluted the royal blood line' following her marriage to Prince Harry.  Doe also claimed that Booth, a former Secret Service agent whose race has not been disclosed, allegedly made constant comments about his homosexuality and slapped his groin at a sushi restaurant in 2018.  Pictured, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan with their family The couple run a home office operation through their California estate, pictured....

    The St. Louis Cardinals are reportedly hiring Oliver Marmol as their new manager. The St. Louis Cardinals went on a historic 17-game winning streak to clinch the final Wild Card spot in the National League. Yes, they did lose to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the single-elimination postseason game, but it was certainly shocking to read that manager Mike Shildt was let go by the organization over “philosophical differences.” But there could be something looming with the Cardinals? According to Derrick S. Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Sunday, the Cardinals had identified internal candidates to replace Shildt as manager, with the leader in those discussions being bench coach Oliver Marmol. Sure enough, The Athletic’s Katie Woo reported shortly afterwards that the Cardinals will announce Marmol as their next manager in a press conference on Monday morning. #Cardinals, bunkered in this part week, had identified internal candidates for manager spots (Marmol appeared the leader in discussions according to sources). Had also made offers to coaches for return while exploring the possibility of adding to staff former Cardinals player(s). —...
    Today is the 30th anniversary of the 1991 Oakland Hills Firestorm, one of California’s deadliest wildfire in nearly 60 years. The fire killed 25 people, destroyed more than 3,000 homes and caused $1.68 billion in property damage in Oakland and Berkeley. In this video, originally created for the 20th anniversary, staff photographer Karl Mondon reflects on covering the tragedy. At the time, Mondon was working for the Contra Costa Times. The tragedy hit close to home as one of his co-workers, Lucy Mantz, was one of 25 who perished in the fire.

    Southwest Airlines is canceling a plan to put some unvaccinated employees on unpaid leave following the federal deadline in December.  The rules apply to Southwest employees who have applied for but not yet received a religious or medical exemption.  As a federal contractor, Southwest Airlines is subject to the Biden administration's COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Employers with a certain number of workers need to have all of them vaccinated unless they are exempt for medical and religious reasons by December 8.   Rules for federal contractors are tougher than those expected of large companies, which will allow for regular COVID-19 testing as an alterative to a vaccination. Labor unions for the company's pilots have attempted to either block the mandate or allow for testing as an alternative.  Southwest Airlines is canceling a plan to put some unvaccinated employees on unpaid leave following the federal deadline in December The rules apply to Southwest employees who have applied for but not yet received a religious or medical exemption As a federal contractor, Southwest Airlines is subject to the Biden administration's COVID-19 vaccine mandate RELATED...
    A THEME park worker who operated the rides revealed the worst thing that ever happened while on the job - with one guest having diarrhoea on the rollercoaster. In a thread on Reddit called "Amusement park employees of Reddit, what is your horror story?" staff shared their horror stories during their jobs. 2Theme park staff have shared the worst stories from their jobsCredit: Getty One person said that during one particularly hot day he was operating a ride, he found one person had pooed all over one of the seats. "I operated a few different roller coasters during my fun-filled summers at this amusement park, but most of my horror stories come from one ride in particular. The train was one of the ones that you had to step into, with a lap bar restraint. "Instead of a normal puke situation, I found a greenish-brown liquid spread all throughout the front car, from the seat down to the floor. "Whoever was the last person to ride the ride had s*** all over themselves and hadn’t bothered to tell anyone...
    Delta is the only U.S. airline that has publicly and at a corporate-level rebuked President Joe Biden's 'divisive' vaccine mandate for companies with 100 or more employees. CEO Ed Bastian said Saturday that allowing his workers to choose whether to get the coronavirus vaccine has proven effective – as 90 per cent of his employees have already received the jab and he expects that to raise another 5 per cent within the next month regardless of a vaccine mandate. 'We're proving that you can work collaboratively with your people, trusting your people to make the right decisions, respecting their decisions and not forcing them over the loss of their jobs,' Bastian told Fox Business. He claims it's not effective to 'force' the vaccine on staff at Delta Air Lines by threatening them with losing their job, as many other companies are doing following Biden issuing an executive order last month. The order requires companies with 100 or more employees to mandate the vaccine and obtain proof from their employees of full inoculation by December 8. The Occupational Safety and Health...
    Two former White House chiefs of staff weighed in Wednesday against the idea of Joe Biden's chief of staff Ron Klain's active Twitter use – in a warning Klain would ignore just hours later, leaving White House trying to explain away his missive on inflation.  Josh Bolten, who served as chief of staff to President George W. Bush, noted in a panel discussion this week that he deliberately kept a low public profile, and said flatly Klain's public tweets weren't the best use of his time. 'I would never have done that. And frankly I don't know how he does it – how he actually keeps up with what he's supposed to be focused on, which I think he is keeping up, and doing all this public communicating at the same time,' he said in a discussion at American University's Sine Institute of Policy & Politics.  He spoke of how 'an errant tweet from Ron Klain can throw a news cycle spinning off in a bad direction.'  Former White House chiefs of staff Josh Bolten and Jack Lew warned against...
    White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain agreed Wednesday that the U.S. economic problems are 'high class problems' Ronald Klain claimed Wednesday evening that the current U.S. economic issues, including inflation and supply chain delays, are just 'high class problems'.  Jason Furman, a Harvard Economics professor and former chairman of President Barack Obama's Council of Economic Advisers, tweeted: 'Most of the economic problems we're facing (inflation, supply chains, etc.) are high class problems.' 'We wouldn't have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10 percent,' he added of earlier rates. 'We would instead have had a much worse problem.' Klain, President Joe Biden's chief of staff, retweeted the post along with, 'This' and two emoji fingers pointing down to the tweet – indicating his agreement.  'As long as we're on the subject of class, it appears Mr Klain and the entire Biden White House missed Economics 101,' Republican Georgia Representative Buddy Carter told DailyMail.com on Thursday. 'Inflation hurts working families and seniors on fixed incomes the most while their runaway spending is leaving all our children and grandchildren under...
    As the holiday season rapidly approaches in the US, travelers who have not seen their families in months - and in some cases, years - face pricey plane trips and unexpected cancellations as airlines demand their employees get vaccinated. What's more, in addition to the astronomical airfares, unexpected cancellations and shocking wait times, travelers who elect to cross the states by car will have to deal with far higher gas prices than usual.  Both American Airlines and JetBlue issued mandates this month requiring their employees get the jab before the holidays.  The airlines have demanded their staff get their second shot of the COVID vaccine by November 24 - the day before Thanksgiving. Any staff who've refused could walk out or face the ax on the busiest travel day in the American calendar, triggering a flood of flight cancelations due to a sudden shortage of staff.    If a meltdown like that happens, flights that do end up taking off will see ticket prices soar even higher than normal for the pricey time of year as travelers whose planes have been...
    A Chicago Catholic private school has become the latest to bend to the woke mob after being branded racist over a video showing white students refusing to dance to a Mexican country song. The drama was triggered at a homecoming dance at the $13,000-a-year Marist High School on October 9, with bosses there since groveling. They apologized even though students snubbed multiple other songs, including one from Justin Bieber, with furious parents insisting nothing racist took place.    Student Elizabeth Pachecho shared a clip of kids kneeling during Payaso de Rodeo, a 1997 song by the Mexican country music group Caballo Dorado, and framed their behavior as racist, even though they knelt at multiple other points during the night for a host of songs they didn't like. She wrote: 'You send us emails asking for pictures of our families during Hispanic Heritage Month. You hang up our banners of papel picado throughout the school. If you love our food, ethnic fashion, and energy so much... why do you resent us. How would you like it if we kneeled to your country...
    Mother Jones illustration; Getty Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.At the end of January, a dozen senior staffers at a controversial “personal safety” startup met to tackle an urgent problem: how to turn a profit. Earlier that month, Citizen, whose flagship app offers “instant notifications and live broadcasts of reported crimes and incidents near you,” was trumpeting a new record: During the January 6 Capitol riot, 1.4 million users engaged with the app for real-time updates, video footage, and police radio snippets, its best-ever daily performance. Executives needed to keep that momentum—and the new revenue it brought in. What the company didn’t announce was how they’d done it—by sending a frightened Washington, DC–based staffer into the violent fray, disguised as a member of the destructive crowd, without protections or safety protocols. “He was there, pretending like he was one of them,” said one former Citizen staffer. “He was just filming and sending those back to central command…A lot of those videos that you saw there were actually...
    A Virginia father who went viral after being dragged out of a Loudoun County school board meeting and arrested for protesting its proposed transgender policies has now revealed he was trying to tell the room that his daughter had been raped by a boy 'in a skirt' in the girls' bathroom.  Scott Smith was photographed on June 22 being dragged out of the heated meeting with his torso exposed in Leesburg, Virginia. The 48-year-old plumber was ridiculed on social media afterwards and was painted by the left to be a deranged, right-wing bigot. But in an interview with The Daily Wire that was published on Monday, he explains that he was trying to stick up for his daughter, who he says was attacked at Stone Bridge High School on May 28 by a boy 'in a skirt' who took advantage of the trans policies to get into the girls' bathrooms and assault her.   He said he exploded with rage at the meeting after hearing the school's ultra-liberal staff claim they had never received a report of a sexual assault by a...
