    Video has emerged on Tuesday of Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert suggesting Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is a terrorist at another event she attended in September.  She also called two progressive lawmakers 'black-hearted' and said liberals wanted to turn her sons into women in her controversial remarks.  Boebert earned public outrage and calls to be stripped of her committee assignments just last week when she was caught on video making an Islamophobic joke about sharing an elevator with Omar when a Capitol police officer allegedly ran in with them. '''Well, she doesn't have a backpack. We should be fine,''' Boebert recalled while addressing supporters during the holiday break.   She told a similar story in the clip from September, taken at a Staten Island, New York Conservative Party dinner, although this time she claimed to have been in the elevator with a member of her staff. 'One of my staffers, on his first day with me, got into an elevator in the Capitol. And in that elevator, we were joined by Ilhan Omar,' Boebert told her smartly-dressed audience. 'Well, it...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A new effort is underway in the search for the Sacramento Zoo’s next location. Sacramento city leaders are taking a look at several sites in hopes of keeping the zoo from relocating to Elk Grove. The Sacramento zoo is a fan favorite for families, which is why mom Gabrielle Cooper- is excited for the possibility that it could be relocated to her South Sacramento neighborhood—at the current undeveloped site of the regional sanitation Buffer lands.

I think if it is something like a zoo that will get the kids together, it will make a lot of people aware of the neighborhood,” Cooper explained. The zoo’s current home in Land Park is 94 years old and sits on less than 15 acres. Zoo officials explain that their cramped quarters are putting their accreditation at risk. In September the zoo entered a 6-month exclusive negotiation with Elk Grove...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. home prices rose briskly in September, another sign that the housing market is booming in the aftermath of last year’s coronavirus recession. The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-city home price climbed 19.1% in September from a year earlier. The strong price gains marked a deceleration from August’s 19.6% year-over-year increase. Still, September prices in all 20 cities set new records. Phoenix was the nation’s hottest market, registering a 33.1% price increase. It was followed by Tampa (where prices rose 27.7%) and Miami (25.2%). All 20 cities reported double-digit increases. The smallest gains were in Chicago (up 11.8%) and Minneapolis (12.8%). The housing market has been strong, thanks to rock-bottom mortgage rates and pent-up demand from consumers locked in last year by the pandemic. “Housing prices continued to show remarkable strength in September, though the pace of price increases declined slightly,” said Craig J. Lazzara, managing director at S&P Dow Jones Indices. He added: “We have previously suggested that the strength in the U.S. housing market is being driven by households’ reaction to the COVID pandemic, as potential...
    (CNN)The 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, just like the 2020 season, was one for the record books -- but for different reasons. The biggest similarity was the high number of named storms. The 2021 season became only the third in history to use all of the names on the rotating seasonal list (the previous years were 2020 and 2005).We ended the season with 21 named storms, 7 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher). During an average year there would be 14 named storms, 7 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes. This year met or exceeded each of those categories, and it was forecast to be that way. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30.There were four major hurricanes this season: Grace, Ida, Larry, and Sam. The strongest two were Ida and Sam, which both reached Category 4 strength. Grace and Larry peaked as Category 3 storms. The first half of the season was off to the races -- as the US was impacted by eight named storms: Claudette, Danny, Elsa, Fred, Henri, Ida, Mindy,...
    The Michigan Wolverines got a monumental win over the Ohio State Buckeyes, but apparently one star Michigan basketball player expected this to happen. For the first time under Jim Harbaugh, the Michigan Wolverines came out and beat the Ohio State Buckeyes. The win was stunning, solid, and proved that Michigan has the potential to be a national title contender. The win was also expected by one of the Michigan basketball team’s stars. Hunter Dickinson, a 7-foot-1 center, is a force to be reckoned with as he helps lead the Wolverines to victory on the basketball court. He also can apparently see the future because he called Michigan’s monumental win over Ohio State on the gridiron.

    MOORPARK (CBSLA) — The public’s help is needed Wednesday to track down an apparent arsonist authorities believe set several small fires throughout Moorpark in the past two months.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. sales of new homes edged up 0.4% last month, coming in below expectations as housing prices continued to climb. The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that sales of new single-family homes rose to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 745,000 last month from 742,000 in September. Economists had expected October new home sales to come in at a 795,000 annual pace. And the September sales rate was revised sharply lower from 800,000 in Commerce’s original report. New home sales were down 23% from a year earlier. The median price of a new home, the point where half the homes sold for more and half for less, rose to a record $407,700 last month, up nearly 18% from a year earlier. New home sales rose 11% from September to October in the Midwest and 0.2% in the South. They fell 11.8% in the Northeast and 1.1% in the West. The housing market has been hot, thanks to rock-bottom mortgage rates and pent-up demand from consumers locked in last year by the pandemic. On Monday, the National Association of...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. consumer spending rebounded in October, rising by a a solid 1.3%, and so was inflation, rising over the past year at the fastest pace in more than three decades. The jump in consumer spending last month was double the 0.6% gain in September, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. At the same time, consumer prices rose 5% compared with the same period last year, the fastest 12-month gain since the same stretch ending in November 1990. The surge in prices this year contributed to the 1.6% rise in spending in November, yet adjusting for inflation, spending was up a still-solid 0.7% after a 0.3% inflation-adjusted gain in September. Personal incomes, which provide the fuel for future spending increases, rose 0.5% in October after having fallen 1% in September, a reflection of a drop in government support payments. Consumer spending, which accounts for 70% of economic activity, is being closely watched by economists who believe strength in this area will lift the overall economy in the final three months of this year.

    Share this: ON THIS DAY IN 1918, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Influenza is now the world’s greatest foe. It is more deadly than war itself. The United States Government has found this to be the case. The Bureau of Census, investigating the recent epidemic that swept not only over all of this country, but over most of the entire civilized world, found that deaths in America, properly chargeable to influenza, were far greater in number than deaths from all causes among American troops in the great conflict. Official figures, available from 46 large cities in the country, show that 78,000 persons died as a direct result of the epidemic of influenza. The figures cover the period from September 8 to November 9. The bureau, on the basis of reports received, believes that from 40,000 to 45,000 American boys gave up their lives abroad — this number including those who died from disease or accident as well as those killed or fatally wounded on the battlefields.” *** ON THIS DAY IN 1920, the Eagle reported, “Fire partially destroyed the Sunday...

    A woman believed to be the oldest person in the world has died at the age of 124 in the Philippines, local officials confirmed today. Francisca Susano, known affectionately as Lola, died at around 6.45pm on Monday at her home in Kabankalan in the province of Negros Occidental. Guinness World Records had still been carrying out age verification as of September to declare her the world's oldest living person. A cause of death has not yet been determined. Susano had not exhibited any symptoms of Covid-19. The supercentenarian was born on September 11, 1897, when the country was still ruled by Spain.  Susano was celebrated by the local government on her birthday with certificates to mark her achievement, as well as a cake and flowers.  Politician Rodolfo Ordanes filed a petition that month urging the House of Representatives to award her a £15,000 gift in recognition of her 'monumental achievement.'    Francisca Susano, known affectionately as Lola, died at around 6.45pm on Tuesday at her home in Kabankalan in the province of Negros Occidental Susano is surrounded by well wishers on her 124th...
    He claimed that they raised enough to bail him out but instead let him stay in jail. "I believe, sometime in September, — September 5, I want to say — they had over a million dollars, and bail was set and able to be posted in September. So they could've had me sign the waiver for extradition and had me back in Wisconsin, and I could have been bailed out by mid-September," said Rittenhouse. "But they wanted to keep me in jail until November 20," he concluded. Rittenhouse's current attorney, Mark Richards, told CNN that Wood was an "idiot" for having Rittenhouse agree to an interview with the Washington Post. Wood objected in an email, saying, "You publicly stated in an interview on CNN that I was an idiot. False, I am not." Wood is known for filing lawsuits to overturn the official results of the 2020 presidential election. Richards went on to say that the two attorneys had been "trying to whore this kid out for money, for their own causes." ...
    A stabbing on a subway left one 32-year-old man dead on Sunday as public transportation crime is on the rise in New York City, according to PIX11 News. Police say the suspect fatally stabbed the rider in the neck as the train approached Penn Station, according to New York’s PIX11 News. The unidentified suspect fled the scene shortly after.

    A measure of Nebraska's economic activity dropped by .91% in September, signaling a possible significant slowdown early next year, according to University of Nebraska-Lincoln economists. “The moderate decline suggests economic growth will slow significantly in Nebraska during the first quarter of 2022,” economist Dr. Eric Thompson, director of the university's Bureau of Business Research, said in a statement. “The economy will expand, but at a lukewarm pace.” Most of the components that go into the state's "leading economic indicator" declined, Thompson said. Those include business expectations, building permits for single-family homes, airline passenger counts, initial claims for unemployment insurance, the value of the U.S. dollar, and manufacturing hours worked, he said. However, Renee Fry, executive director of the nonprofit OpenSky Policy Institute, said there are many positive trends in Nebraska's economic outlook. "State revenue is really higher in Nebraska and forecasters have revised it upward," she told The Center Square. The major obstacles in the economy are worker shortages, supply-chain issues and concerns about inflation, she said. In September, Nebraska had a record-low unemployment rate at 2%, which was the...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. industrial production rebounded in October as automakers, stung by supply chain problems, posted a strong increase and the adverse effects from Hurricane Ida faded. Industrial production rose 1.6% last month after a 1.3% plunge in September, the Federal Reserve reported Tuesday. The September weakness reflected severe shortages of semiconductor chips that contributed to a fall in auto production and the lingering impacts of Hurricane Ida which disrupted oil and gas production along the Gulf Coast. In the major industry groups, manufacturing activity rose 1.2% while mining, which includes oil and gas production, surged 4.1% and output at the nation’s utilities was up 1.2%. The overall 1.6% increase in industrial output was better than economists had been expecting. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    Kent Weakley | Getty Images Rents for single-family homes increased 10.2% nationally in September year over year, up from a 2.6% rise in September of last year, according to a new report from CoreLogic. Improved job growth and sky-high prices in the for-sale housing market added to already strong demand for single-family rentals fueled by the coronavirus pandemic. While 93% of consumers said they believe owning a home is a good investment, according to a separate CoreLogic report, competition in the buying market is forcing more potential buyers to remain renters. The single-family market is particularly hot right now, as people want more space and as the huge millennial generation ages into marriage and parenthood. "Single-family rental vacancy rates remained near 25-year lows in the third quarter of 2021, pushing annual rent growth to double digits in September," said Molly Boesel, principal economist at CoreLogic. "Rent growth should continue to be robust in the near term, especially as the labor market improves and the demand for larger homes continues." Rent growth is strong in every price tier, but strongest at...
    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not plan to wait for an advisory committee to meet before authorizing the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot for all adults, breaking from the typical process. The Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) initially declined to recommend Covid boosters for all adults during a meeting in September, instead only green lighting the Pfizer shot for those 65 and older. Pfizer is once again making a bid to have its shot made available for all adults, and CNN reports that the FDA does not plan on giving the committee a chance to vote against it again. Concerns about myocarditis in young people and the global vaccine disparity were cited as reasons for the shot's initial rejection in September. An FDA vaccine advisory committee made up of outside experts does not plan to meet to discuss the authorization of the Pfizer Covid booster shot for all Americans 18 and older.

    In this article WEThe New York Stock Exchange welcomes WeWork, Inc. (NYSE: WE), today, Thursday, October 21, 2021, in celebration of its listing. To honor the occasion, Sandeep Mathrani, CEO, and Marcelo Claure, Chairman, joined by NYSE President Stacey Cunningham, ring The Opening Bell®.NYSEWeWork shares were slightly positive in premarket trading on Monday after the company reported third-quarter earnings, the company's first report since going public in October.

That slowly dropped as news of the company's finances unraveled and investors raised...
    The 14-year-old daughter of former Chicago Bulls star Corey Benjamin who was filmed sucker-punching an opposing player during a youth basketball game apparently has a history of on-court violence. Another amateur video has emerged showing the girl throwing punches and attacking players during a different tournament game in Carson, California back in September. The incident prompted the organizers of the tournament, a company that goes by the name ‘Swoosh,’ to ban the girl and her team from competition. ‘When I realized that it was associated to the first fight, that I actually witnessed in person, it was devastating just because it’s as if this girl is kind of just out of control,’ Swoosh director Tisha Mcafee told KTLA-TV.

    Almost 1,400 migrants have entered a new “temporary reception centre” in Calais where the migrants are allowed to spend up to a day at a time, but leftist activists are demanding more. The new temporary reception centre has accommodated around 1,400 migrants over the last week, according to the local prefecture in Calais — a popular launchpad for illegal migrants seeking to break into Britain. It is located in an industrial area of Calais several miles from the city centre and has largely been set up to assist migrants as the colder weather approaches, newspaper Le Figaro reports, with many of the tents even having heaters.

              moreby Harry Wilmerding   A record 4.4 million people quit their jobs in September, and job openings remained near a record high as labor shortages continue throughout the country. Roughly 3.0% of U.S. workers left their jobs in September, a jump from August, when 4.3 million people left the workforce, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report released Friday. The number of job openings remained near its August level of 10.4 million. Experts believe the record-setting job departures resulted partially from workers wanting more desirable jobs with better pay, more convenient hours and improved benefits and working conditions, according to The Washington Post.  Delta variant cases surged in September, causing some to hesitate to return to in-person work. “The vast majority of the quitting we’ve seen in 2021 has been job switching,” Nick Bunker, an economist at Indeed, told The Wall Street Journal. “Industries that usually hire people out of work may have shifted their approach toward poaching.” The U.S. economy recorded an increase of 531,000 jobs in October, and unemployment fell by 0.2%, BLS announced on Nov. 5.

    A record number of Americans quit their jobs in September, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics [BLS] Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey [JOLTS] report released on Friday. According to the report, 4.4 million Americans — three percent — chose to voluntarily leave their place of employment. The number rose from 2.9 percent in August and 2.7 percent in July. Federal Reserve Economic Data [FRED] shows September’s number is the highest number on record since December of 2000. Certain job sectors saw the greatest number of quits, and some stayed high but relatively unchanged from previous months. According to the report: Quits increased in several industries with the largest increases in arts, entertainment, and recreation (+56,000); other services (+47,000); and state and local government education (+30,000). Quits decreased in wholesale trade (-30,000). The number of quits increased in the West region. Leisure and hospitality and accommodation and food service also reported high quit rates, though each of those industries experienced little to no increase since last month. The phenomenon has been labeled the “Great Resignation,” in which Americans are...
    By Christopher Rugaber | The Associated Press Americans quit their jobs at a record pace for the second straight month in September, in many cases for more money elsewhere as companies bump up pay to fill job openings that are close to an all-time high. Americans quit their jobs at a record pace for the second straight month in September, in many cases to take jobs at higher wages offered by employers desperate to fill a near-record number of available jobs. The Labor Department said Friday that 4.4 million people quit their jobs in September, or about 3% of the nation’s workforce. That’s up from 4.3 million in August and far above the pre-pandemic level of 3.6 million. There were 10.4 million job openings, down from 10.6 million in August, which was revised higher. The figures point to a historic level of turmoil in the job market as newly-empowered workers quit jobs to take higher pay that is being dangled by businesses in need of help. Incomes are rising, Americans are spending more and the economy is growing, and employers...

    Signage for a job fair is seen on 5th Avenue after the release of the jobs report in New York, September 3, 2021.Andrew Kelly | Reuters Consumer confidence hit a 10-year low in November as inflation climbed to the highest levels since the early 1990s, according to a closely watched gauge. The University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index tumbled to 66.8 for November, according to a preliminary reading Friday. The reading was the lowest since November 2011 and well below the Dow Jones estimate of 72.5. The gauge also indicated a low level of belief that policymakers are acting appropriately to handle inflation, which ran at a 6.2% rate for October, according to the consumer price index released Wednesday. Despite the continued decline in how people feel about the economy, workers again left their jobs in record numbers during September.

Isabella's aunt, Alena Kaeo, added that she was unable to bring herself to consider the worst-case scenario for her missing niece. "But it is always a possibility," she said. "Again, I'm trying to keep my faith as strong as possible, and I pray — I pray hard that she is safe. I don't want to think the worst, but it is a possibility." The investigation into the child's disappearance and death remain ongoing. The couple are being held without bail and do not have an attorney at the time of this reporting.

    Haitian migration to the U.S. fell by more than 90 per cent in October after the Biden administration ramped up deportation flights in September, according to new data revealed Thursday. Customs and Border Protection data obtained by The Washington Post showed 1,000 Haitian migrants were taken into custody crossing from Mexico into the U.S. last month compared to the 17,638 who were apprehended the month before. The massive spike in September came as a huge caravan of Haitian migrants crossed from Mexico into the U.S. and set up a makeshift encampment of around 15,000 people near the international bridge in Del Rio, Texas. To break up the camp and further deter this mass migration in the midst of a prevailing humanitarian and immigration crisis at the southern border, President Joe Biden started aggressively sending out deportation flights. More than 8,500 of these migrants were sent back to Haiti using Title 42, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provision used to 'expel' migrants from the U.S. in the midst of a public health emergency, like the coronavirus pandemic. At the...

                      by Harry Wilmerding  The Consumer Price Index increased 0.9% in October, bringing the key inflation indicator’s year-over-year increase to 6.2% as supply shortages continue and demand grows, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics announced Wednesday. The year-over-year inflation figure is an increase from September’s 5.3% level, marking the highest level in 30 years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report. Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal projected the CPI would increase to just 5.9% in October. The core price index, which excludes volatile categories like food and energy, jumped 0.6% in October, an increase from September’s 0.2% figure, according to the BLS. “I do think we’re moving into a new phase where inflation is broader and where things are going to get a little more intense,” Laura Rosner-Warburton, senior economist at MacroPolicy Perspectives, told the WSJ. “Part of that reflects that [supply-chain] bottlenecks are not resolved going into the holiday season, when a lot of purchases get made, and that the economy is doing really well, so...

    CONCORD, N.H. (CBS/AP) – Human bone fragments found in the area of Loon Mountain in Lincoln, New Hampshire back in September are not those of missing woman Maura Murray. Murray, a University of Massachusetts-Amherst nursing student, has been missing for more than 17 years.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Prices for U.S. consumers jumped 6.2% in October compared with a year earlier as surging costs for food, gas and housing left Americans grappling with the highest inflation rate since 1990. The year-over-year increase in the consumer price index exceeded the 5.4% rise in September, the Labor Department reported Wednesday. From September to October, prices jumped 0.9%, the highest month-over-month increase since June. Inflation is eroding the strong gains in wages and salaries that have flowed to America’s workers in recent months, creating political headaches for the Biden administration and congressional Democrats and intensifying pressure on the Federal Reserve as it considers how fast to withdraw its efforts to boost the economy. Job gains and pay raises have been much healthier during the pandemic recovery than they were after the Great Recession roughly a decade ago. But in contrast to the years that followed that downturn, inflation is now accelerating and diminishing Americans’ confidence in the economy, surveys have found.
