    Mark Walter has reportedly backed LA Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly by joining the latter's bid to buy Chelsea. The US billionaire, himself worth an estimate £3.3billion ($4.4bn), has according to The Athletic and The Telegraph joined the consortium bidding to own the Premier League side. There is however no indication how much money the 62-year-old could or will contribute to the bid, which will have to be submitted by Thursday April 14. That is the new deadline set for the four bidders looking to buy the club, handing the interested parties an extension from the initial cut-off date of Monday April 11 to finalise their offers.  The bidding process is being overseen by Raine, the merchant bank appointed by Roman Abramovich to find buyers before his assets were frozen by UK Government sanctions in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.   The Raine Group are also said to be waiting for clearance from the Premier League before presenting a preferred buyer to the UK government.

    By The Associated Press BRUSSELS — NATO leaders are extending the mandate of Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg for an extra year to help steer the 30-nation military organization through the security crisis sparked by Russia’s war on Ukraine. Stoltenberg tweeted Thursday that he is “honored” by the decision of NATO leaders to extend his term until 30 September 2023. “As we face the biggest security crisis in a generation, we stand united to keep our Alliance strong and our people safe,” he said. The former Norwegian prime minister was named to NATO’s top civilian post in October 2014. It’s the second time that his term of office has been extended. His mandate was due to expire in September. In February, Norway’s government appointed Stoltenberg as head of the Scandinavian country’s central bank and said it hoped he could start in his new role around Dec. 1. It later said that deputy governor Ida Wolden Bache would be in charge until Stoltenberg can take over. ___ KEY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE RUSSIA-UKRAINE WAR: — Ukraine president presses Biden, NATO for more aid as...
    MARTINEZ (CBS SF) — Contra Costa County Superior Court on Thursday extended a suspension of new jury trials because of the ongoing effects of the COVID pandemic. A press statement from the court said the suspension, which began on December 27 and set to end on Friday, would instead be extended through Thursday, February 10, with the court also closed the next day in observance of Lincoln’s Birthday. The court said the original suspension was “based on the reported COVID-19 infection and hospitalization rates and the resulting impact on court personnel, attorneys, litigants and others,” and because the conditions continue, the suspension would be extended. Trial operations were expected to return in full on Monday, February 14.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Hours after going into effect, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District extended an air quality advisory into Friday as smoke from ongoing wildfires is expected to drift into the region. “Northerly winds will continue to bring smoke from the Northern California and Southern Oregon wildfires into the Bay Area,” the agency said Thursday.

    FOXBORO (CBS) — The Patriots practiced in the rain on Thursday, but the soggy conditions didn’t keep Mac Jones from having another solid day on the field. The rookie quarterback had a second straight strong day at training camp, and may have made the QB competition in New England a little bit tighter. The Patriots were in full pads for the second time of camp, and though the weather wasn’t all that great, these are the practices that are closest to real football. Here are some of the observations from Thursday’s session in Foxboro. Strong Day For Mac Jones received more 11-on-11 reps than Cam Newton and made several strong throws during his time in the spotlight.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo extended many of his administration’s COVID-19 Executive Orders without the usual fanfare he’s become known for during the pandemic. Upwards of 180 COVID-19 directives that have been put in place by the governor during the pandemic by Cuomo were set to expire on Thursday, May 6, though many of those were quietly extended recently through Thursday, May 27, with others running through Saturday, June 5 under his orders. The extension of the Executive Orders come after some others were repealed by the legislature, including many provisions on businesses and restaurants. It is unclear whether they plan to repeal any others before they expire moving forward. When asked by CBS6 in Albany about why the extensions were not broadcast more widely, Cuomo spokesperson Rich Azzopardi replied with a statement saying “we’re working night and day for New Yorkers and I don't care one lick what the advocacy industrial complex says about that.” A complete list of Cuomo’s Executive Orders can be found here.  The Executive Order “continuing the temporary suspension and modification of laws...

    SAN DIEGO -- President Donald Trump on Thursday extended pandemic-related bans on green cards and work visas to large groups of applicants through March 31, while a federal appeals court sided with him on a rule that requires new immigrants to have their own health insurance.The twin developments on the final day of 2020 encapsulated how Trump has made U.S. immigration policy more restrictive without support from Congress. President-elect Joe Biden has promised to undo many of Trump's actions but it is unclear how quickly and even to what extent.Federal judges have limited the impact of the pandemic-related visa bans, which were set to expire Thursday. Biden, who is now forced to decide when and whether to lift them after taking office Jan. 20, doesn't specifically address the issue in his immigration platform.Biden also doesn't directly address the health-insurance requirement in his platform, and a lawyer who sued over the policy on Thursday urged him to immediately rescind it.In April, Trump imposed a ban on green cards issued abroad that largely targets family members of people already in the United...
    National Weather Service officials are urging extreme caution as a strong Santa Ana wind event blowing through Southern California will bring very dangerous fire conditions this week. A red flag warning for this “particularly dangerous situation” is in effect through Saturday in Los Angeles and Ventura counties as well as the Santa Clarita Valley, the weather service said. Winds will peak Thursday and are expected to reach up to 40 mph with 70 mph gusts. Humidity levels will be between 8% and 15% on Thursday and continue to decrease Friday and through the weekend to between 5% and 10%. The combination of the extended offshore flow and dry air could lead to devastating fires. Weather service officials said the wind event will last longer than normal, waning in the weekend. But it’s possible the red flag warning will be extended through Tuesday. “We are urging the public to be extremely cautious with anything that can start a fire,” weather service officials said in a forecast discussion. “Some ignition sources are obvious [such as campfires, welding equipment,...

    The Eagles short-handed offense is about to become more of an issue. The Philadelphia Eagles’ quest to return to the postseason is far from over. That said, if the offense wants to fly, they’ll be missing two focal pieces. Philadelphia (1-4-1) will now be without both tight end Zach Ertz and running back Miles Sanders for Thursday night’s game against the New York Giants, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. Both left Sunday’s 30-28 loss against the Baltimore Ravens after Sanders hurt his knee and Ertz injured his ankle. According to Mortensen, Ertz will miss three-to-four weeks following his MRI on Monday. Prior to leaving Sunday, the eight-year veteran finished with four catches for 33 yards. On the season, Ertz has tallied 28 catches for 174 yards and a touchdown. Eagles expect Miles Sanders to miss Thursday nights game with knee injury… Zach Ertz also expected out for 3-to-4 weeks with an ankle injury, according to sources. — Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) October 19, 2020 Sanders, who finished Sunday with 118 yards off nine carries, is expected to return sooner rather initially...
    PHOENIX (AP) — Thursday marks the last day for Arizonans to register to vote in the Nov. 3 general election. A judge had extended the deadline until Oct. 23 after pandemic restrictions led to a decrease in voter registrations. An appeals court later ordered an early end to the extension, though it is allowing people until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday to register. People who have already completed registrations during the extension period will be allowed to vote on Nov. 3. Arizona has recorded more than 47,000 new registrations in the nine days since the deadline was extended. Advocacy groups that petitioned for the extension had said their number of weekly registrations had plummeted because of the pandemic’s restrictions, though those figures returned to almost the same level as before the pandemic. Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich and GOP groups are appealing the Oct. 5 ruling that extended the deadline due to pandemic restrictions.

    The Bay Area’s latest bout with problematic air will extend at least two more days, as Bay Area air quality officials extended a streak of Spare the Air through Thursday. According to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, smoke from the Glass Fire in Napa and Sonoma Counties was to blame. That fire has burned nearly 105 square miles and was 50% contained Tuesday morning, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said. A #SparetheAir Alert is extended through Thurs., 10/8, due to wildfire smoke from the #GlassFire. Burning wood or any solid fuel is banned. If air quality is poor in your area, protect your health by staying inside with windows and doors closed.

    U.S. airlines are preparing to lay off up to 50,000 employees Thursday if Congress fails to pass last-minute fiscal aid. American Airlines warned of roughly 19,000 layoffs when $25 billion in federal aid to the airline industry runs out Thursday. United Airlines said earlier this month that it was planning 16,000 job cuts, and smaller carriers are set to make additional cuts. Those receiving furlough notices include pilots, flight attendants, airport operations staff, and maintenance workers. Air carriers could avoid layoffs if White House officials and Democrats break the stalemate over additional fiscal aid. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Wednesday that he would make House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a counteroffer to the Democrats’ $2.2 trillion plan, which includes relief for the airline industry. “Does the nation want an airline industry ready to drive the economy when vaccines have been widely administered? If so, pay up, now, to keep the industry vital until then,” independent aviation analyst Bob Mann told NBC News. Last week, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows called on Pelosi to pass legislation...
    CHICAGO (CBS)– It’s going to be another rainy day. Showers will continue into Wednesday night with temperatures in the upper 60s.

Rain chances return Saturday.
    The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is extending the air quality advisory through Thursday “at least” as a result of smoke from a weekend of wildfires, a district spokesperson said Tuesday morning. The smoke is heaviest in the East Bay cities of Livermore, Dublin and Pleasanton, according to spokesperson Erin DeMerritt. In Livermore, the air quality index was at 138 as of 8 a.m., well into the range marked unhealthy for sensitive groups. The air quality for the Bay Area as a whole is still at a mid to moderate level. However, DeMerritt said, that could change as the wildfires continue to blaze around the Bay, and areas near and downwind of the fires could continue to see elevated readings. “Things are changing very rapidly because the firefighters haven’t gotten a handle on this fire as quickly as we thought they would,” DeMerritt said. As of Tuesday morning, there was zero containment of any of the fires burning around the Bay Area, including 25,000 acres in Santa Clara County and 12,000 acres in Napa County.
    The eviction moratorium protecting New Yorkers from being booted out of their homes during the coronavirus pandemic has been extended another 30 days. Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order Wednesday night extending protections for tenants who’ve been struggling to pay rent. “The order signed last night continued provisions giving the courts and litigants the leeway to suspend deadlines related to civil litigation. How and if they use this authority when it comes to eviction proceedings is up to them,” Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi said Thursday. An OCA rep said information is forthcoming Thursday afternoon. In June, Cuomo signed legislation creating a new defense in housing court for tenants struggling economically during the health crisis. Judges could bar an eviction if rents could prove they couldn’t pay rent as a result of financial hardships that began after the COVID-19 outbreak. The moratorium was set to expire at midnight Wednesday — potentially leaving as many as 400,000 families across all five boroughs in the lurch.

    CAIRO, Ill. (AP) — A southern Illinois judge on Thursday extended a temporary restraining order barring a nursing home from executing its closure plan until it has fulfilled all its obligations to residents. When Aperion Care Cairo announced its intention to close last week, families complained to Alexander County officials they felt rushed to select alternative placement for loved ones. Illinois law requires private nursing homes planning to close to first submit a transition plan to the Illinois Department of Public Health for approval. After approval, the nursing home must provide notices to residents and their representatives outlining their rights. In a filing last week, Alexander County States Attorney Zach Gowin accused Aperion Care of attempting to circumvent the law and pressure residents to move quickly. Judge Jeffery Ferris on Thursday extended a 10-day restraining order barring Aperion Care from carrying out its closure plan until it has fulfilled all of its obligations to residents under the law.
