    Politico scored an unusual scoop when it reported that President Joe Biden, as their headline put it, “privately tells governors: Minimum wage hike likely isn’t happening.” The scoop is unusual for a couple of reasons, the first being that the headline is at best a misleading oversell when compared with what Biden is reported to have said in the article by Natasha Korecki and Christopher Cadelago: When Joe Biden met with a group of mayors and governors last week he bluntly told them to get ready for a legislative defeat: his proposed minimum wage hike was unlikely to happen, he said, at least in the near term. “I really want this in there but it just doesn’t look like we can do it because of reconciliation,” Biden told the group, according to a person in the room. “I’m not going to give up. But right now, we have to prepare...
    BEN Affleck and Ana De Armas ‘split two weeks ago in secret’ claim insiders - who say the A-lister is now turning to best friend Matt Damon for support.  The Hollywood actor, 48 and Bond star Ana, 32, announced their break up yesterday with sources telling US magazine People that it’s “completely amicable”.  6Ben Affleck and Ana De Armas have gone their separate ways Credit: Rex Features But insiders reveal that the relationship had been on the rocks for over a month before they finally split just after New Year.  “Ana spent Christmas and New Year in Cuba with her family, and Ben was here in LA seeing his kids, which everyone around them found strange,” says the insider.  “Ana gets on really well with Ben’s kids and so spending the holidays apart was a huge sign things weren’t right in the relationship.  “She was still wearing the Cartier bracelet...
    The Steelers are falling apart, and one of Mike Tomlin’s masterful press conference quotes sort of called it two weeks ago.  Remember when the Pittsburgh Steelers were going to finish the season undefeated? Three weeks after talk of a 16-0 season reached a fever pitch, the Steelers are losers of three straight games and ran into a buzzsaw on Sunday against the Colts. Now fans are searching for answers as the playoffs approach but big questions litter the entire locker room. Mike Tomlin and his masterful press conference quotes were highlighted on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown, as current and former players went over their appreciation of his bluntness and how he’s not afraid to be frank in his assessment of the team. But one of his recent gems is now painfully relevant after the Steelers failed to score from the Colts goal line after four straight tries. Two weeks ago Tomlin...
    Veta Belford was last seen by her family on October 17, when her father drove her to work at the Home Depot store on Truxel Road, in Sacramento, for her shift that started at 2pm A desperate appeal for information has been launched by concerned family members of a 19-year-old woman who completely vanished in California two weeks ago after being laid off from her job at Home Depot. Veta Belford was last seen by her family on October 17 when her father drove her to work at the Home Depot store on Truxel Road, in Sacramento, for her shift that started at 2pm. However, when Veta’s mother Akenese arrived at the store to pick her up at 11:30pm that night, the teenager was nowhere to be seen. ‘My mother had texted and said she was waiting in the car outside,’ Veta’s older sister, Easter Kitiona told NBC Dateline....
    Former Department of Homeland Security chief of staff Miles Taylor has been blasted as a ‘two-faced liar’ after he revealed himself to be the anonymous author of a controversial 2018 New York Times op-ed – just weeks after denying he was responsible for the bombshell anti-Trump piece. The article, published in September 2018, chronicled a resistance movement to the president within his own administration and described Trump as, ‘impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective.’ The identity of 'Anonymous' consumed the president and his aides for some time and became one of Washington's favorite guessing games. Taylor revealed himself as the culprit on Twitter Wednesday afternoon ahead of an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. However, just weeks earlier in August, Taylor denied being the unnamed author when asked during an interview on the network with Anderson Cooper. ‘No I'm not [Anonymous] ... I've got my own thoughts on who that might be,’...

The move comes days after Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that movie theaters outside of New York City would be permitted to reopen at a limited capacity. Regal theaters in other U.S. markets will remain closed due to the lack of new movie releases, however. Earlier this month, Mooky Greidinger, the CEO of Cineworld, told CNBC that closing locations in the U.S. and the U.K. was a way to stem the "bleeding." He said his business lost less money by not operating. Representatives for Cineworld did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.

    Anne Fitzsimonds, 48, has been missing since around 1.30am on October 4 A North Dakota mom who went missing almost two weeks ago was involved in a love triangle and may have been wrapped up in drugs, her brother says.  Anne Fitzsimonds, 48, walked away from a party at a friend's house in rural Petersburg at around 1.30am on October 4, although authorities say there are conflicting reports about why she left.   The Nelson County Sheriff's Department carried out a search on the farmstead where the party was held Thursday using cadaver dogs but they were not able to pick up a scent, according to Inforum.  Another dog was used to try and pick up the scent of the direction she may have walked that night but was also unsuccessful.   Fitzsimonds' truck was impounded after the owner of the farmstead handed it over.  According to the married mom's family,...
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now admits that coronavirus does spread through airborne transmission, according to updated guidance on the agency's website.  It comes two weeks after CDC officials said their previous warning about airborne transmission was 'in error,' making Monday's update the third time in a month the agency has flip-flopped on how the virus spreads.   'There is evidence that under certain conditions, people with COVID-19 seem to have infected others who were more than six feet away,' the latest guidance reads.  'In these instances, transmission occurred in poorly ventilated and enclosed spaces that often involved activities that caused heavier breathing, like singing or exercise. Such environments and activities may contribute to the buildup of virus-carrying particles.'    If the virus does spread in fine particles, six feet of distance from an infected person would not necessarily be enough to protect you from catching the virus -...

    Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump nationally and in every swing state, the most recent CNBC poll released Wednesday shows, but by a smaller margin than a similar poll from mid-July. Biden is ahead of Trump in the six most competitive states – Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Florida and North Carolina – according to a summary of the poll data, but his lead in each state is than it was in the previous CNBC poll released July 15. He leads Trump nationally by nine points, 51-42, according to Wednesday’s poll. Biden leads by five points in Wisconsin, four points in Michigan and two points in Pennsylvania, three states that Trump won in 2016 by a total of just 77,000 votes, according to Wednesday’s poll. In the July 15 poll, Biden  lead Trump by six points in Wisconsin and Michigan and eight points in Pennsylvania. Biden leads by...
    “Is that the last time I’m going to see my friend?”@KathieLGifford talks about the last time she saw Regis Philbin. pic.twitter.com/kAMHz3964U — TODAY (@TODAYshow) July 27, 2020 Kathie Lee Gifford last saw Regis Philbin just two weeks ago, in what would become her final get-together with her close friend before his death. Gifford, who worked alongside Philbin from 1985 to 2000 on “Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee,” said that during their recent lunch she sadly “sensed much more fragility than I’d seen in him the last time in January out in Los Angeles.” “I was up from Tennessee, where I live most of the time, and of course the first call I always make is to Regis and Joy [Philbin],” Gifford said on Monday’s episode of the “Today” show. “I said, ‘Can we get together, can we have some lunch?’ So they came over about two weeks...
    Two years ago, when Kanye West suddenly fired his manager and lawyer and professed his love for 'my brother' Donald Trump, his wife Kim Kardashian lashed out at the media for 'trying to demonize my husband.' In an angry series of tweets, she raged that the media's 'commentary on Kanye being erratic and disturbing' is 'actually scary'. She added: 'So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair. Mental Health is no joke and the media needs to stop spitting that out so casually. Bottom line.' Yesterday, the same Kim Kardashian reacted very different way to Kanye's latest outburst of erratic and disturbing tweets about HER and their own family. Two years ago, when Kanye West suddenly fired his manager and lawyer and professed his love for 'my brother' Donald Trump, his wife Kim Kardashian...
    If 'in very good shape' means 'record number of cases,' then Trump was right. Two weeks ago, Donald Trump told Greta Van Susteren that Dr. Anthony Fauci was wrong, super-duper wrong, and that "we are in a good place" on the nation's COVID-19 pandemic. "We've done a good job. I think we are going to be in two, three, four weeks, by the time we next speak, I think we're going to be in very good shape." Shall we check in on that assessment? xNEW: In hard-hit Florida, five counties had no available ICU beds as of Tuesday morning, state health agency says.Of the adult ICU beds across the state, just 16.47% are available. https://t.co/hrMi2Yo30V— ABC News (@ABC) July 21, 2020 xFlorida death toll continues at record pace w/second-highest one-day jump; rise in hospitalizations largest ever.

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The man shot two weeks ago inside the food court of a central Virginia mall has died, police said on Monday. Kimani O. Donovan, who was taken to an area hospital following the June 23 shooting at Chesterfield Towne Center, died on Sunday, the Chesterfield County Police Department said in a release.

    The Louisville man accused of shooting and killing a photographer on Saturday was arrested and released twice before this month. Steven Nelson Lopez has not been charged, but he is in police custody for the shooting of Tyler Gerth, 27, a local photographer. The shooting occurred at Jefferson Square in Louisville, Kentucky, at a Black Lives Matter encampment complete with tents. Lopez, who’s 23, was part of the protest when he apparently got into a dispute with another protester and opened fire. According to reports, Lopez was stopped when “several bystanders returned fire, shooting Lopez in the leg.” Lopez was carrying two full magazines when arrested, according to the citation. Witnesses said Lopez fired into the air twice before turning the gun on the crowd. Here’s the part that caught my eye…. On June 17th Lopez was arrested for inciting a riot, disorderly conduct, harassment and buying/possessing drug paraphernalia. Just...
    The COVID-19 crisis has hit some parts of Colorado harder than others — and of those spots that seemed to have avoided the toughest blows, the most surprising may have been El Paso County, home to Colorado Springs. Early on, the county, which serves as the center for conservatism in the state, briefly led Colorado in terms of deaths attributed to the novel coronavirus as a result of an outbreak at a bridge tournament there circa March; the Colorado Department of Public Health calculated ten positive cases, fourteen probable cases and four COVID-19 deaths connected to the event. But in the months that followed, the statistics became much less dire despite a lack of buy-in related to facial coverings among residents, which we noted in our May 27 field report "Colorado Springs Says FU to Masks." At  the time of that post, El Paso County was in the middle of the...
    Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard announced on Wednesday that the police officer who killed Rayshard Brooks last week was being charged with felony murder and that Brooks did not pose a threat to the officer even though Brooks fired a taser at the officer. The remarks from Howard come after he charged a police officer earlier this month “for pointing a taser” at someone because a taser is considered to be a “deadly weapon” under Georgia law. In explaining the charges against former Atlanta Police Officer Garrett Rolfe, Howard said, “We’ve concluded at the time Mr. Brooks was shot that he did not pose an immediate threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer or officers.” Howard continued by noting that Brooks fired a taser, which he took from the officer on scene, at Rolfe and that Rolfe opened fire on Brooks after that. “But I don’t...
