    NEWARK, Del. (CBS) — A University of Delaware student was shocked to find a hateful message written on the garage door of her off-campus apartment, and it wasn’t the only place the racial slurs appeared. The university’s president sent a letter to the school community condemning the graffiti, but some students say they’re hoping it doesn’t stop there.

Reports of racial slurs inscribed onto the off-campus homes near the University of Delaware have students wondering why. “I think it’s just awful. I don’t know who would do anything like that, vandalize someone’s property, especially writing words like that,” student Brett Basarab said. According to the university’s president, a student discovered a hateful, racist message — including the N-word — written on the garage door of her off-campus apartment. @UDelaware released this statement after racial slurs- including the N-word- were found on two off campus apartments.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) will reportedly still not support Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion reconciliation package for the time being, despite the president’s efforts to persuade him, according to Axios. On Wednesday, sources told Axios that President Joe Biden reportedly hosted Manchin for a meeting at the White House where he failed to persuade the senator into agreeing with the $3.5 trillion bill. Axios was told Biden explained to Manchin his opposition could imperil the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill that’s already passed the Senate. Biden’s analysis did little to persuade Manchin to raise his top line. Manchin held his position and appears willing to let the bipartisan bill hang in the balance, given his entrenched opposition to many of the specific proposals in the $3.5 trillion spending package, Axios was told. Though the two failed to reach an agreement, Manchin and the president reportedly parted on friendly terms and “agreed to keep talking.” Andrew Bates, deputy White House press secretary, told Axios that Manchin remains an “important partner” while refusing to “discuss the contents of private meetings.” Should Manchin get...
    President Joe Biden ordered his administration Monday to review the possibility of increasing the number of personnel stationed at the U.S. embassy in Cuba, also creating a group to consider remittances for Cuban families. Biden’s response comes more than a week after historic protests erupted in Cuba against the nation’s communist regime. Biden and his administration have expressed support for the protests and have condemned communism as a “universally failed system,” but have yet to take any actions to support the movement. Now, however, the administration is reviewing multiple potential avenues for supporting the protesters, the Miami Herald reported Monday. (RELATED: ‘I Fought For Cuba, They Didn’t’: Trump Says Biden Admin’s Response To Cuba Is An ‘Insult To Every Cuban Patriot Who Has Suffered’) “At President Biden’s direction, the United States is actively pursuing measures that will both support the Cuban people and hold the Cuban regime accountable,” a senior administration official told the Miami Herald as well as McClatchy. “The administration will form a Remittance Working Group to identify the most effective way to get remittances directly into the...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The cause of the collapse of a 12-story building near Miami Beach remains a mystery. Investigators will be trying to figure out exactly what happened. CBS3’s Matt Petrillo spoke to a Drexel University structural engineering professor who walked him through the process of how those on the ground investigate the cause of the collapse.

Dr. Aghayere has been reviewing video of the collapse and says investigators will figure out what happened by laying out possible causes and then determining what did not happen. “That’s what I started doing. I said, ‘what could have caused the failure?’ Just looking at the way it collapsed,” Dr. Aghayere said. He points out the building is an oceanfront structure – one that has withstood hurricanes for 40 years and certain parts may have corroded. READ MORE: Woman Stabbed Multiple Times...
    West Virginia Republican Sen. Shelley Moore Capito joined "Special Report" on Tuesday to react to the White House breaking off bipartisan infrastructure bill negotiations with her. Capito said she and President Joe Biden broke off their negotiations in a five-minute phone call, which left her feeling "extremely disappointed." "[W]e offered the president basically what he asked us to do the first time we met with him, which was $1 trillion over 8 years, including baseline spending, and that it wouldn’t include a tax increase – and that was our red line, not his," she said. "The last offer that I got from the president had four tax increases in it. And it also was much closer in numbers than what the White House is putting out right now. So I’m disappointed with that." Host Bret Baier noted the White House claimed Biden never agreed to that initial offer, which Capito maintained was indeed extended. "The president said that to us himself, very clearly … It was walked back by his staff several days later – that's true." VideoCapito said the...

    Washington (CNN)At least six states are moving to shield the most recent round of stimulus payments from private debt collectors after Congress failed to exempt the money from garnishment -- though it did for an earlier round of payments that were approved in December. Low-income Social Security recipients will get their stimulus payments next weekGovernors in Maryland, New Jersey and Washington as well as state attorneys general in Massachusetts, Nebraska and New York have taken action in the past few weeks to make sure their most vulnerable residents will receive their money, which can amount to up to $1,400 per person. But many of the more than 127 million payments that have already been sent by the Internal Revenue Service remain open to seizure in dozens of other states. Recipients with unpaid credit card or medical bills for which a company has obtained a judgment against the debtor could see the fresh infusion taken from their bank accounts, potentially preventing those in need from getting the emergency cash.Lawmakers shielded the $600 payments that were approved as part of the...
    Only 70 House Republicans have not signed on to an amicus brief supporting Texas's challenge at the Supreme Court to the election. The brief, which Louisiana Rep. Mike Johnson organized this week to support Republican challenges to election results in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Michigan, attracted overwhelming support from House Republicans, with 126 members signing on by Friday. The bid failed on Friday night. Prominent proponents included House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, and every member of Republican House Leadership except the party's House Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney. Cheney, who throughout President Trump's term often sought to distance herself from the party, did not immediately respond to request for comment. Other prominent House Republicans who kept their names out of the brief included Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger and Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie. Prominent Trump defenders California Rep. Devin Nunes and Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar also did not sign. Likewise, several Republicans who either lost their primaries or decided to retire, including Texas Rep. Will Hurd and Virginia Rep. Denver Riggleman, refrained from signing the brief....
    Where’s the doggone cash? The ASPCA claims jewelry chain Alex and Ani has failed to hand over more than $99,000 the company raised for the animal nonprofit by selling a special paw print bangle. The Rhode Island-based Alex and Ani began selling the “Prints of Love” charms as part of its “Charity by Design” effort, in 2014, promising to donate 20% of the $34 purchase price and ultimately raising more than $2 million, according to the ASPCA. But Alex and Ani has yet to hand over the remaining chunk of cash, according to a Nov. 12 Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit filed by the ASPCA. “Contrary to its representations to ASPCA and consumers, Alex and Ani has failed to donate tens of thousands of dollars of promised funds owing to ASPCA under the charitable agreement,” the ASPCA charges in court papers. The ASPCA said in a statement it was “grateful” for the support of Alex and Ani customers and “would like to receive the balance of the donations that are due based on purchases made in good faith in support...

    The biggest group of “shy Trump voters” of the 2020 election — voters who concealed their intention from pollsters — was educated white voters working in white-collar jobs, according to a post-election analysis conducted by political scientist Eric Kaufman. In 2016, it was Trump’s support in the rust belt, predominantly from white voters without college degrees, that was underestimated. This was particularly true due to the lack of polling in states like Michigan and Wisconsin that flipped for Trump in that election after decades as deep-blue Democrat states. This time, however, it was white voters with college degrees that the polls failed to detect. Via Unherd: …the polls didn’t do badly in predicting the white non-graduate vote but failed miserably among white graduates. According to a Pew survey on October 9, Trump was leading Biden by 21 points among white non-graduates but trailing him by 26 points among white graduates. Likewise, a Politico/ABC poll on October 11 found that ‘Trump leads by 26 points among white voters without four-year college degrees, but Biden holds a 31-point lead with white college graduates.’ The exit polls, however, show that...
    The Better Government Association has found that both former Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner and current Gov. JB Pritzker have failed to enforce a law meant to support minority-owned businesses.John Chase with the BGA joined ABC 7 Chicago Saturday to talk about the report.A few years ago, Illinois passed a law that required companies receiving state tax breaks to report how much work they did with minority- and women-owned vendors, Chase said.But since the law went into effect, the BGA found that 119 companies that had more than $150 million shaved from their tax bills have not submitted any such reports.And of the 61 firms that did file the required reports, nearly three-quarters reported none of the data the law was intended to gather.The problems are in large part due to both Pritzker's and Rauner's administrations failing to enforce the law, according to the sponsors of the legislation.Read the BGA's full story at bettergov.org.
    Ten years ago, more than 150 countries set a list of goals to achieve by 2020 that aimed to improve the world's biodiversity. On Tuesday, the United Nations announced that out of the 20 targets, known as the "Aichi Targets," the countries fully met none of them.  The targets were meant to do five things: Promote mainstream biodiversity across government and society, reduce the direct pressures on biodiversity and promote sustainable use, improve the status of biodiversity, enhance the benefits of biodiversity, and enhance the implementation of these practices.  Only six of the 20 targets were even partially achieved — two of which were partial accomplishments that were supposed to have been completed in 2015.  Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox According to the report, participating countries managed to: Identify and prioritize invasive species, although there is no evidence of a decline in new invasive species  Protect some land and ocean areas, but not necessarily the most important areas for biodiversity  Make the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources — an international agreement to share the benefits of...
    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Goodyear’s statement Wednesday regarding political speech in the workplace failed to fully clarify the company’s stance on political speech. The exchange came hours after Trump called for his supporters to boycott Goodyear over a photo of what appeared to be the company’s policy of banning pro-Trump paraphernalia while allowing Black Lives Matter symbols. Goodyear released a statement soon after saying the pictured policy was fake, and the company’s true policy is that no political speech of any kind is permitted in the workplace. McEnany argues this is not a sufficient explanation. .@PressSec: “Goodyear needs to come out and clarify their policy.” — Philip Wegmann (@PhilipWegmann) August 19, 2020 The viral photo appeared to show a Goodyear training session on diversity and inclusing, listing “Black Lives Matter” and “LGBT” as acceptable symbols, while “MAGA” and “Blue Lives Matter” were unacceptable.

    Despite coronavirus being significantly less lethal than a pandemic outbreak predicted by top government planners, the UK was still caught unprepared in 2020 in a failure that a parliamentary scrutiny committee categorised as “astonishing”. Pandemic disease was, by the government’s own reckoning and official advice, the most important civil disaster for which organisations and bodies should prepare. Yet top government ministries — including the Treasury, one of the high offices of state — were caught unprepared by the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. A review by parliament’s public accounts committee of the early stages of the British government’s response to coronavirus has highlighted significant gaps in the UK’s response. While the report was largely concerned with the enormous amounts of taxpayers’ money that the government spent in responding to the crisis, a key element of the paper is the ad-hoc nature of that spending. It crucially noted in its conclusion: “We are astonished by the government’s failure to consider in advance how it might deal with the economic impacts of a pandemic.” The report found that while some departments were well prepared,...
    Former Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) will reportedly endorse Joe Biden next month during a speech at the Democratic National Convention in Wisconsin. Kasich, a prominent intraparty critic of President Donald Trump, appeared poised to speak in support of the former vice president, according to the Associated Press. The former Ohio governor is one of several high-profile Republicans likely to endorse and campaign for Biden ahead of the general election. The likely endorsement comes after years of ill-will between the former governor and Trump. The animosity between the two men stretches back to the 2016 presidential primaries, where Trump and Kasich competed fiercely for the Republican nomination. Kasich, a center-right moderate, initially attempted to consolidate the anti-Trump vote behind his candidacy but failed to stand out in the crowded primary race. Even after Trump scored early victories in New Hampshire and South Carolina, Kasich failed to capitalize on the winnowing field of candidates. Overall, the governor never grew his support among GOP voters and only carried his home state of Ohio in the nominating contests. Kasich continued his opposition to Trump well...
    Former Republican presidential candidate John Kasich is set to endorse Democrat Joe Biden at the Democratic National Convention next month.  The Associated Press reported that Kasich, the former governor of Ohio, is among the high-profile, disaffected Republicans that the Biden campaign is trying to bring in as a way to eat into President Donald Trump's base.  Trump, meanwhile, hasn't done much to expand his appeal, as he's leaned into culture war issues, like support for the Confederate flag, telling 'Fox News Sunday' host Chris Wallace that the symbol isn't racist.  John Kasich, a Republican who ran for president in 2016 and served as Ohio's governor, is set to endorse Democrat Joe Biden at the Democratic National Convention next month, the Associated Press reported Monday  Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden has spent the last few months sewing together the Democratic Party after the primary. Now he's trying to get disaffected Republicans to join his ranks   President Donald Trump, on the other hand, hasn't tried to expand his base as he's leaned into culture war issues, like defending the...

    Scheana Marie seemingly subtweeted her longtime co-stars after losing her first child. Scheana Marie recently opened up about the way in which her former Vanderpump Rules co-star, Stassi Schroeder, supported her after her tragic miscarriage last month but according to a new report, Stassi may have been one of the few cast members of the Bravo reality series who actually reached out to Scheana after she lost her fist child. On July 2, a report from Us Weekly magazine revealed that Scheana seemed to imply that certain members of the show hadn’t been there for her when she needed them the most. “I feel like a broken record expecting the same friendship I give in return. But is it THAT hard to check in?” Scheana wrote in one of her posts. Then, after one of her fans and followers told her that certain people handle things differently, especially during a crisis such as the coronavirus pandemic, Scheana said that while she understood that everyone is different when it comes to the way in which they cope, she always checks in...
    Dorinda Medley doesn't feel that Ramona Singer was there for her. Dorinda Medley recently appeared on Chanel Omari’s podcast, Chanel in the City, where she took aim at her Real Housewives of New York City co-star, Ramona Singer, for failing to be there for her as she endured her heartbreaking split from longtime boyfriend John Mahdessian in 2019. Weeks after Dorinda confirmed on the Bravo reality series that she and John had parted ways after seven years together, explaining that she was no longer satisfied by the dynamic of their relationship, Dorinda told Chanel that while some of her cast mates, including Leah McSweeney and Sonja Morgan, checked on her to make sure that she was okay after learning of her breakup, the same couldn’t be said for Ramona. In fact, according to Dorinda, Ramona was not only not there for her but actually made things worse. “I mean, it’s a lot when you’re going through a breakup, your house is being renovated, your dog died, and I really got the feeling like certain people like Ramona piled on,” Dorinda...
    (CNN)Dr. Miguel Ángel Pérez Alvarado was nervous. The pandemic was bad enough, transporting patient after patient with Covid-19 symptoms, but it was something else that worried the veteran doctor who'd spent 11 years riding in a Mexico City public ambulance. "At home he would say, 'Let's stay apart from each other.' He wanted to keep us safe because he knew his working conditions weren't safe," his wife Nancy Edith Alba Cuéllar told CNN in an interview.Read More The father of three girls told her his ambulance crew hadn't been given the proper protective equipment such as gloves, coveralls and masks to keep them safe. He'd complained to his bosses, she said, but they'd respond there wasn't more money available for better supplies. Still, he kept doing his job. It was mid-April when he started feeling sick. By April 20, Dr. Pérez had been hospitalized with a confirmed case of Covid-19. On April 22, he typed out his last message to his family before being intubated. 'Be very careful. I love you all,' he texted his wife. He passed away...
