    ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Legislators, advocates, business representatives and bus riders are calling on the General Assembly to override Gov.

    Getty Vikings running back Dalvin Cook offered a message of support for Everson Griffen, who felt in danger at his home on Wednesday. Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook took the podium for his weekly Wednesday press conference in a somber mood. His longtime teammate, Everson Griffen, was worried there was an intruder in his home and made a series of disturbing Instagram posts early Wednesday morning, claiming someone was in his house trying to kill him. With local authorities and team mental health specialists outside his home, Griffen hadn’t come out all morning. The rest of the team readied for Wednesday’s practice. Griffen, 33, eventually came out of his home “without incident and is now getting the care that he needs,” per ESPN. However, while the situation was ongoing, Cook, 25, offered Griffen a strong message of support and a reminder. The latest Vikings news straight to your inbox!

    DENVER, Colo. (CBS4) – According to AAA, airlines have made a near full recovery since the start of the pandemic and this holiday, those traveling by air should expect more people than ever before. On Wednesday, what was predicted to be one of the busiest days of the week, anxious families arrived hours early only to find minimal lines inside of the airport. (credit: CBS) “I think we got here way too early,” said Mike Schwartz. The Schwartz family was pleasantly surprised by the scene inside the airport, however; parking did present its fair share of challenges. “So far it has been very easy, the shuttle service was a little slow, like picking us up from the Pikes Peak lot,” he said. Most of the lots closest to the airport were full or nearing capacity, but fortunately, it wasn’t a reflection of what travelers found inside of DEN. “No issues I used RTD to get here, it was very convenient and it’s not that crowded,” said one traveler. CBS4 caught up with another Denver resident headed out for the holiday who...
    SALEM (CBS) — A 54-year-old man was arrested on an OUI charge after crashing his Cadillac into an ambulance in Salem on Wednesday morning.

    SANTA CLARA — Jimmy Garoppolo didn’t mince words Wednesday about how much the Vikings’ defensive line attrition could help the 49ers for Sunday’s home game. “It’s a big advantage for us,” Garoppolo said, before doling out ample respect to the Minnesota backups he’ll encounter Sunday at Levi’s Stadium. If only Garoppolo could be as assertive about what his personal future holds. Simply, neither he nor coach Kyle Shanahan could answer outright Wednesday whether the 49ers’ potential playoff charge gives Garoppolo a better shot at extending his tenure into 2022, further delaying Trey Lance’s ascension to the starting role. “Honestly, with the possibilities, I try not to close any doors too early,” Garoppolo said. “We’ve got a lot of going on with the season right now. If you think about those other things, you get distracted. “When we cross that bridge, we’ll assess everything then.” Indeed. None of the 49ers’ brass has ever ruled out a Garoppolo return, as slim as it might be, because who knows what could unfold if a deep playoff run...
    Getty Mike Evans is nursing an injury from Monday's game against the New York Giants. Less than 48 hours after snapping a two-game skid, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sidelined two key players in Mike Evans and Devin White for practice on Wednesday. Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians confirmed the news among other injury updates. White injured his quad, Arians told the media on Wednesday, though the linebacker finished Monday’s game against the New York Giants. Evans’ status didn’t come as a total shock since the wide receiver said his back felt “tight at the end (of the game)” during Monday’s postgame press conference. Evans and White remain questionable for now for Sunday’s game at Indianapolis per ESPN, but three more days remain until the game. The Athletic’s Greg Auman noted that Evans and White’s status for Wednesday “doesn’t mean too much” since the team only had a walkthrough practice. Bruce Arians said Devin White did not practice today with a quad injury. Mike Evans also held out with back issues. Again, just a walkthrough so doesn’t...

    (CNN)The ex-girlfriend of former NFL player Zac Stacy testified Wednesday that she fears for her and her two children's safety after allegedly being violently assaulted by Stacy on November 13 in Oakland, Florida."I was punched, slapped, literally picked up and thrown into my TV and then (he) picked me up and slammed me into my son's bouncy seat by my throat. This is not the first time he has been violent with me. I am afraid for my safety and for my children's safety," Kristin Evans told 9th Circuit Judge Mark S. Blechman. In a joint motion filed by the Office of the State Attorney and Evans on November 19, Evans said that she specifically fears for her life. Evans asked the court to increase Stacy's bond and place him on home confinement, a request Blechman ultimately denied. Evans posted graphic video from the incident on her Instagram account and has publicly called on the NFL "to confront the reality that players are experiencing PTSD from their time playing pro-football."

    Dalvin Cook says he’s trying to reach out to his teammate after seeing the disturbing Everson Griffen video on Wednesday morning.  A disturbing video posted to the Instagram account of Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen on Wednesday morning has prompted an ongoing police situation outside of his home. In the video Griffen is seen sitting at his home in the dark with a handgun, describing to those watching that he has a license to carry it and that he’s preparing to defend himself against what he claims is a threat to his life.

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A statue of football coach Glenn “Bo” Schembechler on the University of Michigan campus has been vandalized with paint.

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A statue on the University of Michigan campus of legendary football coach Glenn “Bo” Schembechler has been vandalized with paint and a message supporting sexual assault victims of a former sports doctor has been scrawled on the steps beneath it. A crew was working Wednesday to remove red paint splattered on the statue outside the Ann Arbor school’s football building, the Detroit Free Press reported. Written in black on the steps was: “Bo knew #hailtothevictims.” The university said Wednesday in a statement that the vandalism was under investigation. A law firm hired by U-M found that officials failed to stop the late Dr. Robert Anderson, despite hearing reports that he sexually assaulted student athletes. The university is in mediation with lawyers who are seeking a financial settlement for 800-plus people, mostly men. Former Michigan football players have said they told Schembechler in the 1970s about Anderson’s behavior during physical exams. Schembechler’s son, Matt, has said he told his father that Anderson assaulted him as a child. Another son, Glenn, does not think his father was...

    In this article LCID RIVN CNBC's Jim Cramer on Wednesday urged investors in high-flying electric vehicle stocks to remain disciplined, leaning on the history of the dot-com bubble to inform his latest market advice. "I can't blame anyone who wants to find the next Tesla ... but I need you to remember the lessons of 1999," the "Mad Money" host said. "There were many stocks that made you money back then, but with the exception of Amazon, you got killed if you didn't quickly ring the register." Cramer's comments are particularly focused on two electric vehicle start-ups — Rivian Automotive and Lucid Group — that have soared in recent days before both declining Wednesday. Rivian, which debuted on the Nasdaq a week ago, tumbled 15% Wednesday but remains up 45% over the past five sessions. Although it currently has next to no revenue, Rivian's market capitalization of $124.6 billion is larger than those of General Motors and Ford. Lucid, which late last month delivered its first vehicles to customers, is up 29% over the past five trading days,...
    Just before the start of Wimbledon in late June, Roger Federer recalled a conversation about retirement that he had with Pete Sampras a decade ago. "He was wondering how much longer I had in the tank. This was when I was just hitting 30," Federer said. "He was thinking I was coming towards the end or something, just because it was, for him, normal that at 31, 33 — with the career that we’ve had, with all the sacrifice, in a way, you have to go through — it’s hard to keep on pushing for more years on tour." CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Federer, who turned 40 in August, went on to explain that he never thought he’d still be going at this age, especially after a series of knee operations. With Wednesday’s news that not only will he sit out the Australian Open in January but also expects to miss Wimbledon in 2022, the notion that Federer really might not have many — or perhaps even any — high-level performances left in him becomes all...
    SANTA CLARA — When Jimmy Garoppolo wasn’t busy handing off the football in Monday night’s 44-run salute, he wasn’t too busy holding onto it for a pass, either. Garopppolo got the ball out so fast in the 49ers’ rout of the Rams that, according to NFL stats, his average release time of 2.3 seconds was the second-quickest of his career and the league’s speediest last weekend. “It’s important that the guys get open that fast, too,” coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday. “But, I mean, Jimmy’s best asset is, well, just look at how he throws. How many people have that quick twitch and can decide to throw with the ball getting out of their hand physically as fast as him. “I don’t know anyone who can do it faster.” Garoppol was 12-of-14 for 138 yards with his two touchdown passes when unloading the ball in under 2.5 seconds during the 31-10 victory. Aiding and abetting his quick release has been his starting spot. He’s been in shotgun on 89 of 93 dropbacks the past three...
    Isaiah Wilson’s off-field history, commitment to football and fitness all were major concerns when he signed with the Giants’ practice squad on Sept. 30. So it was encouraging on Wednesday to hear Andrew Thomas, Wilson’s Georgia teammate, endorse the practice squad lineman’s start with the team. “I think Isaiah definitely has his head on straight,” Thomas said Wednesday. “He’s trying to learn. He’s trying to get the playbook. We’ve sat down and had a couple talks because a lot of our scheme at Georgia was pretty similar. So just translating the terms was the biggest thing for him, and he’s learning pretty well.” Thomas also said Wilson, who played right tackle at Georgia, is adjusting to his move inside to guard with the Giants. “Moving him inside, playing a little bit more guard, he played tackle in college, so we’ll see how he does with that,” Thomas said. Wilson, 22, is a developmental project for the Giants. He is working on losing weight and getting in football shape, which will take time. He is not...
    MOLINE, Ill. (CBS/AP) — More than 10,000 striking Deere & Co. workers are voting on a new contract offer from the tractor maker, but this third deal is strikingly similar to a contract that 55% of workers rejected two weeks ago. The latest proposed contract being voted on Wednesday maintains the 10% immediate raises that the last deal offered, and it makes what the United Auto Workers union called modest changes to Deere’s internal incentive pay program for workers.

    Sen. Joe Manchin isn't putting the brakes on President Joe Biden's massive spending bill anymore. The West Virginia Democrat said Wednesday he is open to a vote on the $1.85 trillion social spending legislation before the end of the year. House Democratic leaders are pushing for a vote on the proposal as early as Thursday. Assuming the bill passes the House, it would likely undergo major changes in the Senate. Manchin has expressed concern about the recent level of federal spending, including the $1.2 trillion infrastructure law Biden signed on Monday. Manchin has raised concerns that a too-expensive bill would contribute to rising inflation. Manchin’s support for the social spending in the Senate is crucial for its passage since no Republicans are expected to back it.

    MOLINE, Ill. (AP) — More than 10,000 striking Deere & Co. workers were voting Wednesday on a new contract offer from the tractor maker, but this third deal is strikingly similar to a contract that 55% of workers rejected two weeks ago. The latest proposed contract maintains the 10% immediate raises that the last deal offered, and it makes what the United Auto Workers union called modest changes to the details of Deere’s internal incentive pay program for workers. After the last vote on Nov. 2, Deere officials told the union not to expect the company to offer any more money, and Deere largely stuck to that promise in this latest offer. In addition to the initial raises, this week’s offer keeps the 5% raises that were in the third and fifth years of the six-year deal and 3% lump sum payments in the second, fourth and sixth years of the deal. The offer would also provide an $8,500 ratification bonus, preserve a pension option for new employees, make workers eligible for health insurance sooner and maintain their no-premium health...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden on Wednesday lamented new data showing American drug overdose deaths topped 100,000 annually for the first time, saying that "we cannot overlook this epidemic of loss, which has touched families and communities across the country." More than 100,000 people died of drug overdoses in the United States during the 12-month period ending April 2021, according to provisional data published Wednesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That's a new record high, with overdose deaths jumping 28.5% from the same period one year earlier.RELATED: Biden administration grapples with American addiction as overdose deaths hit a record highExperts have told CNN that the Covid-19 pandemic and the rise in use of fentanyl have both been key contributors to the rising overdose death toll.

Provisions in the package, known as the American Rescue Plan, are aimed at expanding services for substance use disorder and mental health. The President said his administration is also "working...

    BERKELEY (BCN) – The union representing University of California lecturers is planning a two-day systemwide strike starting Wednesday. Officials from the University Council-American Federation of Teachers claim the administration hasn’t been bargaining in good faith, which led the union to file seven unfair labor practices complaints with state regulators over the past 20 months.

The union, which represents roughly 6,500 lecturers across the 10-campus system, claims the university has failed to negotiate over several issues, including its paid leave policy, settlement terms for “improperly” withheld retirement contributions and compensation for out-of-pocket expenses related to remote teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic, among other things. On Sunday, the Council of UC Faculty Associations, which represents assistant, associate and full professors, sent a letter to UC President Michael Drake saying that nearly...
    House lawmakers will vote Wednesday on a resolution to censure Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar and remove him from the Committee on Oversight and Reform, a source familiar with the plans told the Washington Examiner. The rare censure measure was prompted by a video Gosar tweeted last week that featured the faces of Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, President Joe Biden, and himself cast over animated characters from the Japanese anime series Attack on Titan. AOC's and Biden’s faces were edited onto those of the show's villains, and Gosar’s character killed AOC and assaulted Biden. The resolution will not strip Gosar from all committee assignments, though, as was the case with Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene at the beginning of the year. While he sits on the Oversight and Reform committee alongside AOC, Gosar also sits on the House Committee on Natural Resources. The move from Democrats opens up the possibility for retaliation from Republicans if they win back the House in 2022. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has vowed to push for removing Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar...

    This year, a dark sky site should produce 10 to 15 Leonid meteors an hour, but the presence of the moon will wash out dimmer Leonids. (Courtesy Greg Redfern) If you’re a night owl or an early riser and like to look at the night sky, a big show is in store early Wednesday: The annual Leonid Meteor Shower is expected to peak between midnight and dawn. The Leonids were first seen in 902 A.D. and “storm” every few decades, producing hundreds to thousands of meteors an hour. The last Leonid storm was in 2001. This year, a dark sky site should produce 10 to 15 Leonid meteors an hour, but the presence of the moon will wash out dimmer Leonids. Each year at this time, our planet encounters a debris stream of cometary particles made by Comet Temple-Tuttle as it orbits the sun. As Earth moves in its orbit around the sun, it collides with this debris stream, and the particles hit our atmosphere at 45 miles per second (i.e., 155,000 mph) to become “shooting stars” or “falling stars.”...

    BRUSSELS (AP) — Belgium’s government is bringing forward a meeting to decide on tighter measures to control the spread of COVID-19 amid a rapid increase in infections and hospital admissions in the nation. The meeting, which was originally set for Friday, was moved up to Wednesday so that any measure approved midweek could be operational by the weekend, the government said Monday. Hospital admissions are shooting up 30% on a weekly basis, and the number of patients in intensive care have risen to more than 500, putting ever more strain on hospitals in the nation of 11 million. Belgium has just gone through an extended holiday weekend and no precise figures were published Monday. Authorities reimposed some pandemic restrictions three weeks ago after relaxing them just a few weeks earlier. They also expanded a nationwide use of the COVID-19 pass. But infections have continued to rise, and the government is expected to look into further areas where facemask wearing should be made mandatory. It is also set to consider turning its advice on working from home into a...

    Share this: Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo appeared pugilistic and paranoid at times in an 11-hour deposition, made public Wednesday, denying the sexual harassment allegations that forced him from office while ascribing political motives to the people investigating his behavior. Meanwhile, in their own interviews, his accusers detailed a “toxic” workplace in the Cuomo administration where they said they were subjected to crude remarks, creepy questions about their sex lives, hazing and bullying. New York Attorney General Letitia James released hundreds of pages of transcripts Wednesday of interviews a team of independent investigators did earlier this year with 10 of Cuomo’s accusers, plus the governor himself.

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters on Thursday that Gregory is going to miss multiple weeks with a calf injury.

    (CNN)Rising consumer prices have quickly become one of the White House's most urgent concerns as Americans grow unsettled at the higher cost of goods -- and place the blame on President Joe Biden.The President has convened meeting after meeting of his top economic advisers to debate the matter, and aides now discuss multiple times per week how to address the supply chain crisis and shortages of goods that are driving up the cost of nearly everything.In his public messaging, Biden has turned away from insisting inflation is only temporary, something he said repeatedly over the summer. Instead, he has frankly acknowledged that higher prices are obscuring the benefits -- like jobs roaring back, wages rising and the stock market surging -- of a post-pandemic boom."Inflation hurts (Americans') pocketbooks, and reversing this trend is a top priority for me," Biden said in a statement on Wednesday after the government reported consumer prices jumping last month. Over the past 12 months, prices climbed 6.2% -- the biggest increase since November 1990.His statement made no mention of the trend being "transitory," a description...
    The governor of Florida has accused Joe Biden of having blood on his hands for flying undocumented migrants to his state after one them lied to stay in the country and then murdered a man in Jacksonville. Yery Noel Medina Ulloa, 24, told immigration officials that he was 17. As a result, he was allowed to stay in the country. On October 7 he was arrested in Jacksonville, having arrived in Florida around two months earlier, and charged with the murder of 46-year-old Francisco Javier Cuellar, with whom he lived. Ulloa called Cuellar his uncle, although it is unclear if they were biologically related.  It was also unclear how Ulloa got to Florida, but Ron DeSantis, the governor, has suggested that Ulloa was brought to the state on a controversial migrant flight, sending immigrants away from the border and inland into the country.  'They don't tell us when these flights are coming in,' said DeSantis, speaking on Wednesday night to Fox News host Sean Hannity.   Ron DeSantis, the Republican governor of Florida, on Wednesday held Biden responsible for the death of a man...
    Getty Landon Dickerson and Jordan Mailata are building good chemistry along the left side of the Eagles' offensive line. Jordan Mailata was pretty proud of his one-liner after Wednesday’s practice. The protector of Jalen Hurts’ blindside made it a point to call out his joke to reporters just in case no one heard him. And Mailata’s laughter was contagious as he discussed his “blooming bromance” with rookie Landon Dickerson. “We’re big boppers. He’s strong as hell,” Mailata told reporters. “He’s such a funny character. Our bromance is blooming. Get it? Blooming. I’m sorry. I thought that was funny. It’s awesome playing next to him.” The comment was an obvious reference to Nick Sirianni’s decision to flash a flower picture at a recent team meeting. He compared the Philadelphia Eagles to roots growing under the soil, an analogy meant to indicate their development in his first year running the show. The media blasted him for it, although players publicly supported Sirianni.

    In this article MA Mastercard CEO Michael Miebach on Wednesday expressed optimism about global travel recovery, telling CNBC's Jim Cramer that the payments processor is benefiting already from a rise in cross-border volumes and sees more room to run. In an interview on "Mad Money," Miebach noted it's only been two days since the U.S. lifted its strict coronavirus-related restrictions on international travelers, but already "tourists are arriving, and they're spending." "The power of travel is coming back. It's coming back to our P&L," he said, referring to the company's profit-and-loss statement. "The trends are super encouraging." The executive sees plenty of room for recovery in both leisure and business travel. "I'll just give you one stat: 20% of the top markets around the world, from a cross-border perspective, are currently at 70% pre-pandemic volume. That's 30% upside," said Miebach, who took over as Mastercard CEO last year. "Then you take the U.S., U.K., and Canada, which are the largest markets where the borders only just opened this week, they're at 50%. That's all upside, because people will go out...
    CNN legal analyst Jefferey Toobin said Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen standing trial for multiple felonies following a shooting in Kenosha, Wisc. last year, is fortunate it is not crime in America to "be an idiot."  "What kind of idiot seventeen year old gets a giant gun and goes to a riot? He has no license, he has no training, he thinks he's going to scrub graffiti off with his AR-15? I mean, the stupidity of this. What could possibly go wrong? Well a lot went wrong," Toobin said Wednesday during CNN's coverage of the Rittenhouse murder trial, which is taking place this week. "The good news for Kyle Rittenhouse is that he's not on trial for being an idiot, he's on trial for homicide."  Rittenhouse is on trial for multiple felonies for killing two people and wounding another during protests that erupted following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man. He took the stand on Wednesday, speaking publicly for the first time since the incident and sobbing while arguing he was defending himself when he fired his weapon. Judge Bruce...
