    President Joe Biden will not support a plan endorsed by Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib that would release all prisoners from federal detention facilities within ten years, press secretary Jen Psaki said at her Tuesday press conference. “The president does not support abolishing prisons, he does not support defunding the police. He thinks measures like that will make us less safe, and he would not support legislation that includes it,” Psaki said. Tlaib has expressed support for the BREATHE Act, a plan written by the left-wing Movement for Black Lives that would require the “full decarceration of federal detention facilities within ten years” and ban common forms of punishment and surveillance, such as parole, probation and electronic ankle monitoring. The BREATHE Act has not been introduced as a formal piece of legislation, but has received support from Tlaib and Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley.

    The trial of the three men accused of slaying Ahmaud Arbery has Black Americans walking on pins and needles once again. Whatever the jury decides, I’m afraid, will fail to address a damming question that the tragic incident symbolizes: How can Black people ever be secure in America? Executed by three strangers while jogging in a white neighborhood, Arbery’s killing reflects the mindset of domination in the culture of white supremacy: the belief that any random white person has the right to accost and detain a Black person with impunity. Authorities are ready to accept their claims of righteous endangerment–even when they are the instigators of the danger. Yet, the Arbery encounter is just the latest in a series of violent racial incidents that linger in memory: George Floyd, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, and so many others. The fatal consequences are recounted on television and social media and trigger episodes of post-traumatic stress in the Black psyche. Add to these graphic executions the racism inherent in the criminal justice system, and the increasingly unstable antics of...

    By Madeline Holcombe | CNN As it is, holiday gatherings with loved ones can be a careful dance of dodging landmines on the way to wonderful memories — and this year, we are adding potentially explosive conversations around vaccination status. About 58.5% of the United States is fully vaccinated against Covid-19, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Many experts say that vaccination is the best way to protect against the virus and slow or stop the spread, but much of the population still has hesitation. In some cases, people have outright objections to being vaccinated. The difference in vaccine stances can complicate family and friends gathering for holidays, even for those who are getting their shots. Children under 5 years old are not yet able to get vaccinated, kids ages 5 to 11 are not yet fully vaccinated, and even those who have had both of their shots risk breakthrough infections. “Think about your vaccine as a very good raincoat,” said CNN Medical Analyst Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency physician and professor of health policy and...

He resigned after that shift, leaving a resignation letter and his badge behind. Borough officials said they have yet to learn why he suddenly resigned. “I believe that we have...
    First Lady Jill Biden visited a McLean, Virginia elementary school Monday and urged parents to vaccinate their kids against COVID-19.  'Please make the decision to protect your children with the same vaccine that has already saved millions of lives, because nothing is more important than our children's health,' the first lady said, though was careful to label the decision a 'choice.'     The venue was significant - as Franklin Sherman Elementary School was the first school in the nation to host a polio vaccine clinic on April 26, 1954, with more than 100 second graders getting their shots.  On Monday, 260 kids ages five through 11 were given their first Pfizer dose.

    Attorney General Chris Carr is offering important safety tips to help Georgia families prepare for the upcoming Halloween weekend:  “Halloween is an exciting time for kids and provides a memorable experience for families across our state,” said Carr. “Unfortunately, holiday activities also bring the potential for accidents if the proper precautionary steps are not taken. To help Georgians stay safe, our Consumer Protection Division offers the following tips to enjoy peace of mind while spending time with family and friends this Halloween weekend.” Pumpkin Carving and Decorations: An adult should always be present for pumpkin carving. Let children participate by drawing the face on the pumpkin and scooping out the insides, but leave the carving to an adult. Any open flame can potentially be dangerous. Consider using artificial lights instead. Costumes: Make sure costumes are “flame resistant.” If the costume has a mask, make sure your child has eye holes large enough for good peripheral vision. Use soft and flexible materials for swords, knives and other props....

    A Staten Island mother is developing a lingerie brand for transgender women meant to solve issues surrounding "tucking," which she said can cause urinary tract infections. Karyn Bello's daughter Lily came out as transgender in 2014.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Before you turn your heat on, there are steps you need to remember to take to make sure you do it safely. It’s especially important with people spending more time at home. CBS2’s Alice Gainer spoke to some experts on Thursday. Heating is the second-leading cause of home fires in the U.S., according to the National Fire Prevention Association. Most home-heating fire deaths — 81% — involve space heaters. “Malfunctioning space heaters or we leave them there too close to a blanket,” FDNY Lt. Scott Duryea said.

    EschCollection | Stone | Getty Images The next time a company accountant is tallying up operational expenses for their office buildings there could be several new items on the list: sensors, ultraviolet lights and maybe even plants with algorithms. As companies and building owners re-open office doors after the coronavirus pandemic, they are now faced with greater responsibilities in keeping tenants and workers safe. Grant Morgan, the CEO of biosafety start-up R-Zero, said that this has opened up a whole new line of business for companies providing products and services around hygiene and safety. Building tenants and employees will expect it, he said. "We thought that there would be quite a bit of lingering psychological scar tissue if you will, in the eyes, in the minds of the public," he said. "People aren't going to want to go back to these spaces without knowing that there's something different being done." R-Zero was born in the pandemic. Last year it rolled out its first ultraviolet disinfection machines for disinfecting rooms. The equipment is typically seen in hospitals but R-Zero has developed...

    DENVER (CBS4) – Now that students are back in session, police in Denver and other Colorado communities area stressing the importance of driving safely around school buses. Police say it’s critically important for drivers to slow down and to not cut corners when a bus is nearby. It’s illegal to pass a school bus that stops to load or unload children. If the yellow or red lights on the bus are on and the stop arm is extended, traffic must stop. “Children are at school to learn, and their main focus is learning in school and then going home and enjoying the rest of their day,” said Officer Kurt Davis from the Denver Police Department. “We want to make sure that as adults we look at this and we provide a safe environment for them to commute to and from school.” Parents can keep children safe at school bus stops by using the acronym SAFE.

    Joe Biden has said that children should wear face masks whenever they leave the house - even if outdoors - to try and stop the spread of COVID-19. The president on Monday held a press conference to celebrate the FDA's final approval of the Pfizer vaccine.  But even as he delivered good news, he angered some with his advice.   'So let me say this to parents. You have the tools. You have the tools to keep your child safer. And two of those tools above all are available to you,' he said. 'One: make sure everyone around your child who can be vaccinated is vaccinated. Parents, adults, teens. 'Two: make sure your child is masked when they leave home.

    CBS News correspondent Christina Ruffini grilled State Department spokesperson Ned Price on Tuesday over whether the United States can provide safe passage for civilians to get to the Kabul airport amid the Taliban taking over the Afghan capital. Ruffini, in her exchange with Price, challenged the Biden administration’s assertion that the Taliban agreed to allow for safe passage of civilians to the airport in that there have been cases of people, such as one family, being stopped by the Taliban at checkpoints and couldn’t get to the airport. The CBS correspondent mentioned that President Joe Biden said in his speech on Monday that some of the Afghans who were eligible for Special Immigrant Visas, or SIVs – which are given to translators and others who assisted the United States in Afghanistan – declined to leave. Ruffini noted that White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during Tuesday’s White House press briefing that, as Ruffini put it, “a contingent that did not take advantage and depart,” which is different than Biden’s claim. “What we’ve heard from Afghans on the ground...

    (CNN)The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has changed its guidance to once again recommend that even vaccinated people start masking indoors in areas of the country with high and substantial coronavirus spread. Key to their decision was a study that shows that fully vaccinated people can still transmit the Delta variant.At the same time, Disney, Netflix, Google, Walmart and the federal government announced plans to implement some type of vaccine requirement for employees returning to in-person work. Is it safe for vaccinated people to return to work if vaccine mandates are in place? What if they are not -- is masking enough, and what if others around you are unvaccinated and not wearing masks?

    TOKYO (AP) — In a way, the massive upheaval that upended the U.S. Olympic world over the past five years was designed for the sort of moment Simone Biles faced. Not long after Biles withdrew from the gymnastics team final Tuesday night, the leader of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee said she was convinced as ever that changes geared toward a sharper focus on the overall health of athletes — not just the medals they win — have been worth it. Sarah Hirshland, the CEO of the USOPC, told The Associated Press if a new atmosphere the federation has tried to create played any small part in offering comfort to Biles as she wrestled with what to do, “then I’m thrilled that it was a safe enough space for her to make that decision.” “Whether it’s our organization, the changes at (USA Gymnastics) or whether it’s because it’s a conversation that’s been happening in society and in the athlete community overall, it’s positive,” Hirshland said.
