    There are no plans for President Joe Biden to visit Waukesha, Wis., after the Christmas parade attack earlier this month that killed six people, according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.    'Obviously any president going to visit a community requires a lot of assets ... requires taking their resources,' she said after being asked during her regular briefing on Monday why he had not yet visited. 'And it's not something that I have a trip to preview at this point in time, but we remain in touch with local officials.'  A vigil was held in Waukesha on Sunday afternoon to mark a week since an S.U.V. plowed into a Christmas parade. Darrell Brooks, 39, has been charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide, a charge that carries a mandatory life sentence if convicted.  More charges are expected to follow. Investigators have yet to reveal a motive. White House Press Secretary said she had nothing to announce about any trips when asked why President Joe Biden had not visited Waukesha, Wisconsin 'Obviously any president going to visit a community requires...

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: What, pray tell, is a “pre-wedding toast” event? A longtime, but casual, friend — the father of the bride, whom I have never met — has sent an electronic invitation (about which I will say nothing) to attend “Bride and Groom’s Pre-Wedding Toast.” It is an afternoon event on a certain date at a certain location. That is the entire message in the invitation. No method to RSVP is provided. I will, therefore, respond to the gentleman’s personal email address — while refraining from clicking the tempting “unsubscribe” link within the invitation.

    James Bond may have found a mission even he can’t complete.  Despite becoming the highest grossing Hollywood film this year, No Time To Die could reportedly lose up to $100million (£75million).  The film, which marked Daniel Craig’s final outing as 007, grossed more than £545million at the global box office to become the best performing film since the start of the pandemic.  But at a reported cost of more than £187million to produce, at least £75million to promote and an alleged tens of millions more to postpone, it would have needed to make close to £673million to break even, according to Variety magazine.  Nomi (Lashana Lynch) and James Bond (Daniel Craig) star in No Time To Die As a result it reportedly looks set to lose £75million.  Metro Goldwyn Mayer, the studio behind the film, vehemently denied the claims.  ‘Unnamed and uninformed sources suggesting the film will lose money are categorically unfounded and put more simply, not true,’ a statement read.  MGM said the film had ‘far exceeded our theatrical estimates in this time frame’ and claimed it ‘will earn...
    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers played Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings with an injured toe. And during the first half of their 34-31 loss to their divisional rivals, Rodgers had his foot stepped on, which made the injury even worse. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Aaron Rodgers, the reigning NFL MVP, is currently sidelined after testing positive for COVID. (Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports) Rodgers said that the injury is "a little worse than turf toe" and added that it’s "very, very painful." Rodgers said that he has a bone issue in his pinkie toe. "I believe that I mentioned that it was more painful than turf toe, and I had turf toe two years ago," Rodgers said on "The Pat McAfee Show" on Tuesday. "The problem with turf toe is it’s that joint in your big toe, and it is very painful. So naturally, I’m leading people to understand that if it’s worse than turf toe, there must be some sort of bone issue. Again, it’s better the fifth toe than the first...
    To hear Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tell it, Senate passage of the Build Back Better Act in something close to its current form is nothing short of a must. In an interview with The New York Times, AOC fumed about the watered-down version of the spending package, and warned that progressives may not back the agenda of President Joe Biden and Democratic House leadership going forward if the Senate does not follow through and pass the bill. “I think the stakes are really, really high,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “The entire reason that the Progressive Caucus gave their votes [to the recently-passed $1 trillion infrastructure bill] was based on direct promises from the president, as well as direct promises from more conservative Democratic holdouts. And from House leadership as well. So if those promises don’t follow through, it’s going to be very, very difficult for them to get votes on anything moving forward, because the trust that was already so delicate will have been broken.” The New York representative went on to call the process of getting these spending packages through...
    THE first round of $285 'surprise stimulus' checks were sent to qualifying Americans on November 15, and will be arriving in waves over the next several weeks. The last round of checks is expected to reach eligible homes by December 31, just before the end of 2021. 1The $285 checks will be sent to all eligible Maine residents ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS Only residents of Maine are eligible for the check, which Governor Janet Mills hopes will “help Maine families, to some small degree, during the holiday season as we work to fully recover our economy.” The governor announced that a bipartisan bill allowing for a check worth $285 was passed earlier this month. Along with the residency requirement, eligibility depends on a person’s income and work history. To get paid, a person much have worked through 2020 and have submitted a tax return. The payment has been described as “hazard pay” by Governor Mills, and the work qualification intends to help the people “who kept our state running through the pandemic.” Tax returns will also determine eligibility based on income....
    FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) — A man who was given a 5% likelihood of survival after contracting COVID-19 is now sharing his story of survival in hope of saving others from going through the trauma he did this year. Nathan Washam, 43, was in a coma for nearly two months and later diagnosed as paralyzed following his contracting COVID-19. (credit: CBS) READ MORE: Kruger Rock Fire Now Fully Contained Near Estes ParkWasham, who prior to COVID-19 was very physically active, went into the hospital in January 2021 weighing 218 pounds. Much of his weight was muscle mass. Washam says he had 18-inch biceps before hospitalization. Washam did not have underlying health conditions nor was he immunocompromised. He did battle cancer nearly two decades prior. Doctors with UCHealth said his previous cancer diagnosis do not contribute to his severe response to COVID-19. “I’m a non-smoker, non-drinker, very physically active and healthy person who went from living a normal life to having every single thing in my life taken away from me,” Washam told CBS4’s Dillon Thomas.

    DENVER (CBS4) – Winter is coming. So is a higher price to keep your home warm this season. Xcel Energy expects natural gas prices to increase through the winter as production has not kept up with demand during the pandemic. (credit: CBS) “If our customers use exactly the same amount as what did last year, they should expect to see a $28 increase every month through the season,” Hollie Velasquez Horvath, Xcel’s Vice President of State Affairs, told CBS4. Horvath explained Xcel customers pay about $90 on average for their utility bill. That won’t be the case this winter, however. “We anticipate that our customers will see a higher increase in their utility bills over the winter season unless they do some adjustments and change a little bit of their habit,” she said. That’s where the Home Energy Squad can step in. It’s a program Xcel Energy offers where a team of technicians will visit a customer’s home for an energy audit. They look for ways to make the home more energy efficient to save the customer money, like adjusting...
    "This baby went through living hell," Arnett said, noting that the child was first placed in emergency custody of a great-aunt due to Copeland and Ucman's home environment being filthy and unfit to house a newborn baby. Child services returned the child to her parents six weeks later, but the child was dead just weeks after that. "Delilah is in heaven," Arnett said. "I can't help her, but there are so many other babies out there. I can't save my grandbaby, but maybe we can save some others." "We have a whole family of people that would have taken care of this baby," Arnett added. "I knew my granddaughter was dangerous," Arnett continued. "I knew this and I told social services." She added, "Social services was told by every member of the family that she was dangerous. We knew the boy was dangerous." Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

    (CNN)Get your binoculars ready because meteors will paint the sky with their fleeting light Wednesday morning. The Leonid meteor shower will peak in the early morning hours on November 17. This meteor shower is known for having a storm every 33 years, with the last storm happening in 2002, NASA said. Its meteor debris originates from Comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle, a small comet about 2.24 miles (3.6 kilometers) wide, according to NASA. The comet is hurtling through space at a velocity of 44 miles (71 kilometers) per second, NASA said. Viewers of the Leonid meteor shower, in areas of the United States where the weather will be clear, should expect to see about 10 to 15 meteors per hour, EarthSky said. A meteor storm has significantly more shooting stars than a meteor shower -- at least 1,000 per hour, according to NASA.Read MoreHow to watchThe moon is unfortunately in a waxing gibbous phase on peak night, meaning that much of the moon will be visible.

    Moments before news broke that Steve Bannon was being indicted by a federal grand jury on Friday, he was putting forth his master plan for national domination. The former adviser to Donald Trump told his viewers on War Room that the Trumpified GOP “is taking over all the elections.” Bannon has baselessly claimed on numerous occasions that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump. “We’re not complaining about it anymore,” said Bannon on Friday. “Remember, there are no whining and no tears in the War Room. We’re taking action and that action is we’re taking over school boards, we’re taking over the Republican Party through the precinct committee strategy. We’re taking over all the elections.” He then hailed the election of Republican Glenn Youngkin as governor of Virginia, and suggested he only won because Democrats were prevented from stealing the content. “Suck on this,” said Bannon, doing his best Thomas Friedman impression. “Ninety-five percent of the billets in Virginia were occupied of election officials and poll watchers, and that is a principal reason that we secured the election of...

    DEAR READERS: Happy Veterans Day! To all of you who have served in the United States military, we thank you for your service to our country. Harriette Cole  Most Americans have someone in their family who has served in the military. For many, it is a badge of honor to do so. Now is the time to focus on family members and loved ones who have served and pause to acknowledge them. I was recently reminded of the deep sentiment that can come from serving in this way. My family and I spent the two summers of COVID-19 living in the back house of friends who reside in a historically African American beach community in the Hamptons in New York. There’s tremendous legacy there, including our host, Mr. Bill Pickens, known as the unofficial mayor of Sag Harbor Hills. Uncle Bill, as all fondly call him, served in the military. Indeed, he spent time in Japan, long enough to become fluent in the language and later help to create a foundation to support American-Japanese relations. Uncle Bill proudly put on...
    Sure, it may feel like it was just only yesterday that we were bracing our wallets in anticipation of another epic Amazon Prime Day sale, but the week-long Black Friday and Cyber Monday (also known as "Turkey Five" and "Deals Week" by the way) extravaganza is apparently already here. Black Friday sales seem to start earlier and earlier every year, and this year many brands and retailers have taken note and launched their sale events way early. Alas, early Black Friday deals 2021 are here, so there's no need to wait until the post-Thanksgiving day madness to score on some stellar deals and get a jumpstart on your holiday shopping list.

    NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) — A fresh helping of cool, dry air is on the way from Canada but as with most cold fronts, the price to pay will be the chance of storms across the Metroplex, a few of which could be on the stronger side. The good news is that by Thursday morning, it’ll be a distant memory and the skies will turn brilliantly sunny for Veterans Day and the rest of the week. THREAT: The Storm Prediction Center has placed some of north Texas under a ‘slight risk’ of severe weather, mainly along and north of Interstate-20. For areas south of that, the threat is even lower with only a ‘marginal’ chance of some storms reaching severe limits. There is a slight risk (2 out of 5) of severe weather this evening, mainly along and north of I-20. I'm not overly concerned but some hail and gusty winds will be possible with any of the punchier storms. #CBSDFW pic.twitter.com/Fynid6yQu3 — Blake Mathews (@BlakeMathews08) November 10, 2021 READ MORE: Fundraiser Held To Benefit Dallas Firefighters Injured In Highland...
    David Paul Morris/Bloomberg/Getty This story was originally published by Wired and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. On a dusty hilltop in San Diego, the drinking water of the future courses through a wildly complicated and very loud jumble of tanks, pipes, and cylinders. Here at the North City Water Reclamation Plant, very not-drinkable wastewater is turned into a liquid so pure it would actually wreak havoc on your body if you imbibed it without further treatment.  First the system hits the wastewater with ozone, which destroys bacteria and viruses. Then it pumps the water through filters packed with coal granules that trap organic solids. Next, the water passes through fine membranes that snag any remaining solids and microbes. “The pores are so small, you can’t see them except with a really powerful microscope,” says Amy Dorman, deputy director of Pure Water San Diego, the city’s initiative to reduce its reliance on water imported from afar. “Basically, they only allow the water molecules to get through.”  But to be extra sure, the next step blasts the water with UV...

    Covid virus cells infiltrating a person's brain via their nos, could be the cause of some cognitive symptoms associated with 'long Covid.' Researchers from the Rotman Research Institute - Baycrest in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and the California National Primate Research Center in Davis, California, presented findings pointing to such at the Society for Neuroscience on Wednesday, according to NBC News. Both sets of researchers believe the virus can directly affect the brain, causing a variety of cognitive issues such as brain fog and a memory recall problems. The findings give experts more insight into 'long Covid,' a mysterious condition that has appeared in thousands of Covid survivors months after clearing the infection. Researchers believe that Covid may be able to infect a person's neurons by coming in through the nose, bypassing barriers in place the brain has to prevent such infections (file photo) Once Covid cells attach themselves to neurons, they can freely travel the body since the immune system is unlikely to attack them. This could potentially be the reason some Covid survivors suffer from cognitive issues post-infection A person's brain has a...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There was a surprise on stage at a Broadway show Wednesday night. Producers of “Is This A Room” and “Dana H.” announced the highly acclaimed plays will extend another two weeks. The shows had previously set closing dates for Nov. 13 and Nov. 14, two months earlier than initially planned. Both shows are alternating performance dates at Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre and will now run through Nov. 28. “Is This A Room” is the true story of Reality Winner, the 25-year-old former Air Force linguist who pled guilty to leaking a classified government document.

If and when the CDC gives the shot the green light, health care providers will be permitted to administer the vaccines.

    American startup Resilient Power has received support from Amazon to fund a charging solution for electric vehicles. With the transition to the electric car, questions arise about the efficiency of the electric grids. In the United States, Startup Resilient Power is working to address this issue and is increasing its budget. The company wants to revolutionize the use of the electric network by electric car. In fact, studies show that on the other side of the Atlantic, a network with 25% more capacity is needed to convert the entire automobile fleet into electricity. In addition to distribution, Resilient Power wants to design charging stations that offer storage as well. The Atlanta-based company is developing a technology based on this micro-grid idea.

    Share this: soON THIS DAY IN 1909, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “The fight for the Fourth avenue subway has been won. By a unanimous vote the Board of Estimate at the meeting this morning authorized the appropriation of $2,850,000 to begin the construction work immediately. Then the board went farther, at the instigation of Controller [Herman] Metz, who has been instrumental in holding up the project for a year, and passed a resolution requesting the Public Service Commission to apply to the Board of Estimate for $13,036,381, which is the balance of the estimated cost of the entire six sections of the subway from the Manhattan Bridge to Forty-third street. ‘As long as we started the work, we should see that it won’t be held up by any future board,’ said Mr. Metz. ‘This board here should authorize the balance of the money covering the entire cost of construction so the work won’t be stopped after it has once been started.’” *** ON THIS DAY IN 1924, the Eagle reported, “The New York-New Jersey vehicular tunnel is ‘holed through.’...
    Gaffe-prone President Biden stumbled his way through a line on universal pre-K during a stump speech for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe on Tuesday night, and Republicans were quick to take notice.  'In fact, we're taking a page from Terry's book when he was governor and when he'd be governor next time,' Biden told a crowd in Arlington, Va.  'We're emerging from this pandemic, we want to expand pre-K for 3- and 4-year-olds — millions of [inaudible] students.' Biden's Build Back Better agenda includes nationwide pre-kindergarten.   The Republican National Committee posted a 15-second clip of the video to Twitter with the caption, 'Huh?'  Critics have been quick to point to the 78-year-old president's frequent blunders as signs of his cognitive decline, while defenders have called such attacks hyper-partisan and noted that Biden has struggled to overcome a stutter throughout his life.  'In fact, we're taking a page from Terry's book when he was governor and when he'd be governor next time,' Biden told a crowd in Arlington, Va. 'We're emerging from this pandemic, we want to expand pre-K for 3- and...
    California will begin sending 1,150,000 pandemic stimulus payments this week to qualifying residents, the Franchise Tax Board said Friday, Oct. 22. The Golden State Stimulus II payments began in late August and are drawn from federal funds and the state’s $75.7 billion budget surplus. Nearly two-thirds of Californians are eligible for a stimulus check of $600 under two different Golden State Stimulus programs. Golden State Stimulus I is distributing payments of $600-$1,200 to low-income residents who claim the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit. Those residents typically earn less than $30,000 annually. The extra $600 is for qualifying children or family dependents. In the GSSII program, qualifying residents who earn less than $75,000 in adjusted gross income will get $600 and an additional $500 for dependents. We asked Andrew LePage at the Franchise Tax Board to give us an update on the program. How many GSSII payments are going out? The next scheduled batch will comprise roughly 1.15 million GSS II payments – about 400,000 direct deposits and about 750,000 mailed checks. How many GSS II payments have been sent, to...
    Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., and his wife Erin are wandering into little known territory for politicians by launching a new podcast Monday that will "pull back the curtain" on their lives outside Capitol Hill. "This is Living with Josh and Erin Hawley," the couple told Fox News Digital, was "a joint idea" they had been mulling over for some time. The new platform will allow them to get candid about their marriage and their experience in raising their three children - two boys aged 8 and 6 and an 11-month-old girl. "We thought it'd be really fun to do something together and to maybe pull back the curtain a bit on our lives and our family life and just the day-to-day living that we do," Sen. Hawley said. "It's not a political hot takes show, it's not a commentary, but it's really about our life together." COLUMBIA, MO - NOVEMBER 06: Missouri's Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Josh Hawley waits in line with his wife, Erin Hawley, to casts their votes on election day at The Crossings Church on November 6,...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — We have been enjoying a very warm stretch of October weather this week. Even though the average high for this time of year is in the mid-60s, we’ve had three straight days in the 70s, and that’s not even counting the 80s we saw just last week. It’s been pleasant while it’s lasted, but changes are on the way.

    On Monday’s broadcast of “Fox News Primetime,” Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) said China’s test of a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile “is the culmination of multiple decades of the Chinese stealing their way to the top” and “the thing that’s most frustrating is it’s our money that is fueling this military build-up from Wall Street, to Hollywood, to sports, you name it.” Waltz said, “This is economic warfare, and this hypersonic missile is the culmination of multiple decades of the Chinese stealing their way to the top through taking our IP out of our universities, our research institutions, through cyber. And if they can’t do all of that, they buy it. But the thing that’s most frustrating is it’s our money that is fueling this military build-up from Wall Street, to Hollywood, to sports, you name it. We are awash in Chinese money. We’re compromised. We’ve got to bring that manufacturing back home and protect our intellectual property. Because they’re stealing it and turning it against us.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

    NASA's Lucy mission will launch this week, starting a 12 year journey through the solar system that will include a swing-by of eight different asteroids. The spaceship will be the first to tour the so-called Trojan asteroids that orbit Jupiter and are 'time capsules from the birth of our Solar System,' according to NASA scientists from the Goddard Space Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. The $981 million (£715 million) mission takes its name from the fossilised human ancestor, named 'Lucy' by her discovers, whose skeleton provided unique insights into our evolution. NASA says the Lucy space mission will revolutionise our knowledge of planetary origins and the formation of the solar system, giving insight into planetary evolution. It is scheduled to launch on Saturday, October 16 at 05:34 ET (10:34 BST) on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.  It also carries a plaque that includes quotes from the likes of Carl Sagan, Albert Einstein and the Beatles.  NASA's Lucy mission will launch this week, starting a 12 year journey through the solar system...
    Our Colorado mountains have had a little snow this fall, but the first big shot of snow has yet to arrive. That will change very quickly as an area of low pressure and cold front are set to move through quickly. The front is already moving through, kicking up quite a bit of wind. The low will move through on Tuesday, bringing the snow with it. Heavy snow will start after midnight in southwestern Colorado and spread through the night to the northwest. We expect snow on and off through Tuesday in the mountains. Add in some very strong wind, travel could be tough at times along our mountain passes.
