    The US is shutting down the infamous New York City jail where Jeffrey Epstein killed himself two years ago, citing lax security due to staffing shortages and crumbling infrastructure that's led to rat and roach infestations. On Thursday, the federal Bureau of Prisons announced that the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan will be closed temporarily just weeks after Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco visited the prison and saw the conditions firsthand.  Most inmates will be moved to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where Epstein's former longtime girlfriend and associate Ghislaine Maxwell is being held on charges of sex trafficking, enticement of minors and perjury.  Inmates and lawyers have complained that MCC was infested with mice, rats and roaches and that multiple inmates were forced to share dirty sinks and toilets that leaked water, urine and feces.  Lawyers and inmates have complained of rat infestations and leaking toilets at MCC The jail is the site where disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein killed himself in August 2019 RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next EXCLUSIVE: Ghislaine Maxwell...

    The Biden administration will be allowing asylum-seekers who were ordered to be deported for not attending their court hearings under the Trump-era "Remain-in-Mexico" program to enter the U.S. and re-start their proceedings here, according to a notice sent to Congress and obtained by CBS News. Asylum-seekers whose cases were terminated will also be eligible for admission under this phase of the Biden administration's draw down of the Remain-in-Mexico program, which required 70,000 non-Mexican migrants to wait outside the U.S. for their court hearings. The Biden administration has already admitted more than 11,000 asylum-seekers who were previously required to wait in Mexico. The first phase benefited asylum-seekers with pending cases, like Lazaro, a political dissident from Cuba who was allowed to reunite with his U.S.-based wife and meet his baby daughter this spring. Advocates have urged the Biden administration to expand processing to asylum applicants who were ordered deported under former President Trump's presidency, arguing that many were not able to attend court appointments because of squalid conditions and high levels of crime in northern Mexico. Some asylum-seekers reported being...
    The DarkSide hackers that closed the Colonial Pipeline have bagged more than $90 million in Bitcoin ransom payments from 47 victims and have infected at least 99 companies in the last year. Blockchain analytics firm Elliptic said DarkSide's Bitcoin wallet received millions of dollars worth of ransom payments in the nine months between October last year and last week when the wallet shut down. Roughly half of all organizations targeted by the cybercriminal gang paid ransom money with the average payment being around $1.9 million, Elliptic said.  Dark web intelligence firm DarkTracer has identified 99 organizations that were infected with Darkside including fashion label Guess and car firm Toshiba. It is not clear which companies paid the hackers ransom money.  Colonial Pipeline was the target of a huge cyber attack earlier this month which halted 2.5 million barrels per day of fuel shipments along the line running from Texas to New Jersey. Officials labeled it the most disruptive cyberattack on US energy infrastructure in history. The issues continue to rumble on, with the company admitting network issues are now preventing shippers...

                      by John Haughey  In 2019, Florida homeowners accounted for 8.16 percent of the nation’s property insurance claims, but more than 76 percent of property insurance lawsuits lodged against insurers. Pointing to this “disparity,” Florida Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier in a five-page April 2 letter to House Commerce Committee Chair Rep. Blaise Ingoglia, R-Spring Hill, outlined four proposals to reduce property insurance litigation. Insurers cite rampant litigation, ballooning reinsurance costs, “loss creep” from 2017-18 hurricanes and coastal flooding as a “perform storm” of coalescing factors leading to double-digit property insurance rate hikes that Florida businesses and 6.2 million homeowners are seeing or will see when renewing policies. Several of Altmeier’s recommendations are already being considered by lawmakers. Senate Bill 76, filed by Sen. Jim Boyd, R-Bradenton, restricts awarding contingency risk multipliers only “in a rare and exceptional circumstance,” requires policy-holders file claims within two years, down from three, and creates a “reimbursement schedule” that allows insurers to sell policies with reduced payments for roofs over 10-years-old. SB 76 was passed by Senate April...

    New York (CNN Business)For Mason Ayer, the frigid winter storm that tore through Texas felt like yet another punch in the gut. Power and water outages made it impossible to operate Kerbey Lane Cafe, the small Austin-based chain of coffee shops where he serves as CEO. All eight locations were closed for at least a couple of days. Ayer estimated that during that time, the company lost about $294,000 in sales, plus another $13,000 in spoiled inventory. And because business interruption insurance typically only kicks in as a result of physical property damage, he's not expecting insurance to cover those lost sales."This storm hits, and it's the last thing in the world our industry needed," he said. "But it seems fitting, given everything else that's happened over the course of the last year." Kerbey Lane Cafe locations were closed during the storm.Restaurant operators in Texas were just starting to feel like things were turning around before the storm hit on. Covid cases had started to fall, millions of Texans had received at least one dose of the vaccine and...
    Spending less time outside of homes does more to reduce the number of COVID-19 cases than school closures, a new study suggests. Researchers found that shutting down classrooms was linked to a 3.5 percent decline in cases. However, behavioral changes, such as not going to restaurants or to offices, was associated with a 9.3 precent decline - almost three times as much. What's more, staying at home prevented seven times as many cases and six times as many deaths as having students learn remotely. The team, from the University of California, Los Angeles, says the findings show that the decision to close schools was 'reasonable' given the uncertainty surrounding the early days of the pandemic, but that it did not play the most important role in slowing the severity of COVID-19. A news study from the University of California, Los Angeles found that school closures were linked to a 3.5% decline in COVID-19 cases (orange line) compared to a 9.3% reduction by staying at home (blue line) Shutting down classrooms was linked to a 3.8% reduction in fatalities...

    “The clock is ticking,” said White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Fox News about the possibility of a coronavirus deal. “We have tried very hard to narrow the gap. Very hard. But we just can’t leap the hurdles of policy disagreements.” Kudlow conceded it would be “very hard to get it done before the election.” This is a negotiation which started back in July. Pressure mounted in early August. Talks went dark for a while. Then intensified in the middle of September. That’s because layoffs loomed in October. Extra unemployment benefits expired in July. The sides believed they had an opportunity to forge a deal before the election. A coalition of Democrats and Republicans pressured House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to cut a smaller deal with the administration.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Could Bears fans see their team in person at Soldier Field this year? Chicago’s Mayor said she and the team are in talks about During a news conference, Mayor Lori Lightfoot was asked if Chicago could do what other NFL cities have done and allow a small number of fans in the stands to watch football games. “Like any other Bears fan of course, I would like to be there,” Lightfoot said. “We’re having conversations with the Bears and we’ll see where they where they lead. We’ll see.” The NFL, along with other professional sports leagues, closed the games to fans this season because of COVID-19 and the fact that it’s nearly impossible to stay socially distanced in the stands. But the league is fluid in holding that rule in place, as several teams are opening the stands to a fraction of their existing capacities. ESPN reports some teams have stated that the games will stay closed “until further notice.” The Green Bay Packers will allow a small number of fans to watch inside Lambeau Field in...
    When restaurants were ordered to close to in-house customers last March, some never reopened. Wendell's, a breakfast eatery at 3838 Tennyson Street, was one of them. But rather than completely scrapping the diner, co-founder Kade Gianinetti sold it to new owners, who reopened Wendell's the last week of September. "We first looked at it on May 28, and we loved everything about it," says Casey Keller, who purchased Wendell's with her husband, Roy Benoit. They closed the deal in mid-August and have been working ever since to train new staff, plan the menu and relaunch during the pandemic.

As reported, Professor Mona Ivey-Soto introduced herself to students at Brentwood High on Monday as someone who is “very passionate about public education and what it means to transform the world.” “I pray there is a level of discomfort you might feel [because of what I say]. Why am I feeling uncomfortable and why is this pushing my buttons a certain way and what do I need to do to lean into that?” Soto told students. She also said she sees public schools as an instrument of social change. On Tuesday The Star offered Soto the opportunity to provide a complete response to our story published on Monday. In addition, we posed several follow up questions to her. Soto responded to some of our questions, and declined to respond to several others. Specifically, we asked her to clarify whether we...
    Two public libraries in Loudoun County, Virginia, that had been closed to the public so they could be used as day care facilities during the coronavirus pandemic are reopening Friday. The Ashburn and Rust libraries — two of the county’s 10 branches — had been previously limited to curbside pickup service since Aug. 31, as the county’s Board of Supervisors sought to find buildings to accommodate 1,000 child care seats. The board selected 11 elementary schools, five community centers, two recreation centers, and the two libraries, as well as leasing two facilities, as part of a plan that prioritized offering day care solutions to county staff and children who qualify for free and reduced lunches. The day care options were also open to all residents. However, only 197 students have registered, as of Sept. 10, according to Board of Supervisors staff. With plenty of room in other facilities, the libraries are not presently needed, clearing the way for them to reopen Friday. “We are delighted to reopen the Ashburn and Rust libraries,” said Loudoun County Public Library Director Chang Liu,...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Casinos that were closed through May due to the coronavirus pandemic yielded nearly no tax revenue for Nevada, state regulators reported Tuesday. Gambling establishments statewide reported a 99.4% decrease in house winnings compared with the same month a year ago, the state Gaming Control Board reported. The near-zero numbers followed similar results in April, the first full month after casinos and many businesses were closed in mid-March to prevent people from gathering and spreading the COVID-19 illness. Casinos were allowed to reopen June 4. The state collected just $56,000 in taxes based on May revenues, down 99.9% compared with a year ago. A small amount of revenue came from mobile sports betting and interactive poker that weren’t suspended. The numbers are more dramatic compared with February, when casinos on a hot streak reported a third straight month of $1 billion in house winnings. Nevada has reported increases in recent days in the number of people diagnosed with COVID-19, with just under 18,000 people testing positive. State health officials reported Monday that 504 people have died. For...

    Connecticut and Rhode Island are the only two US states reporting a decline in new coronavirus cases compared to last week as cases across southern and western states surge to record levels. The total number of infections has now surpassed 2.5 million in the United States, after the country reached an all-time one-day high of 40,000 new cases on Friday. A rise in documented cases was reported in a staggering 36 states, including Florida, which some experts are tipping to become the next epicentre of the virus, after it reported 9,585 new cases Saturday and 8,500 more Sunday.

The new cases bring the statewide total to 140,075. Florida is now reporting 3,419 coronavirus related deaths, which is an increase of 29 since Saturday. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has insisted there is nothing to worry about and ‘nothing has changed’ in the last week, blaming the state’s troubling surge as the result of a ‘test dump’....
