    "I think just the opposite. Failing to fully publicly explore and explain what drove Brooks to commit mass murder would only allow the evil to further metastasize." Jason went on to argue that the Waukesha tragedy suspect, Darrell Brooks, was a product of Democratic talking points and policies. "This isn’t about settling a score between conservatives and liberals. It’s about assessing the cost of mainstreaming and normalizing critical race theory and gangsta-rap-culture across our primary communication and information platforms. Darrell Brooks appears to be a direct reflection of what the American zeitgeist ... says a black man should be: angry, emotional, profane, violent, racist, and criminal," Jason said. "The Waukesha massacre needs to be politicized. The racist political strategy of the Democratic Party helped radicalize Darrell Brooks. The Democrats told black people a government check could replace the black father. The Democrats tell black people the matriarchy is better than the patriarchy. The Democrats tell black people to see themselves as perpetual victims of an irredeemably racist country rather than as conquerors of...

    ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (WJZ) — After an “unusually high number” of bus driver call-outs caused parents to seek alternate transportation for getting their kids to school, the Howard County Public School System said Monday afternoon that all but three bus routes will be restored for afternoon dismissal.

    MARSHFIELD (CBS) – Kids can get their costumes ready for trick-or-treating.

    Robert A. Pape, University of Chicago A recent Washington demonstration supporting those charged with crimes for the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol fizzled, with no more than 200 demonstrators showing up. The organizers had promised 700 people would turn out – or more. But the threat from far-right insurrectionists is not over. For months, my colleagues and I at the University of Chicago Project on Security and Threats have been tracking insurrectionist sentiments in U.S. adults, most recently in surveys in June. We have found that 47 million American adults – nearly 1 in 5 – agree with the statement that “the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump and Joe Biden is an illegitimate president." Of those, 21 million also agree that “use of force is justified to restore Donald J. Trump to the presidency." Our survey found that many of these 21 million people with insurrectionist sentiments have the capacity for violent mobilization. At least 7 million of them already own a gun, and at least 3 million have...
    Memo to Sen. Kyrsten Sinema: Your friend would not be pleased with you. Meaning John Lewis, the Georgia congressman and civil rights titan who died last year of pancreatic cancer. You marked the anniversary of his passing over the weekend with a spectacularly hypocritical tweet, calling him “a personal hero of mine — a man of principle and courage. … Rest in power, my dear friend.” As many observers — this one included — were quick to point out, the best way to honor Lewis would be by defending the cause that made him iconic: voting rights. Instead, you’ve chosen to defend the filibuster, a parliamentary parlor trick by which Republicans have blocked two bills — one of them named for your “dear friend” — designed to protect those rights from renewed assault by right-wing lawmakers. If not getting it were an Olympics event, you’d be in gold-medal contention. The argument Democrats like you and Sen. Joe Manchin offer for refusing to end — or even modify — the filibuster sounds principled enough. You contend that, while it might be...
    Former Ohio State superstar quarterback Terrelle Pryor wants his place in history restored. Pryor and four other Buckeyes players were sanctioned by the NCAA in 2010 after it was determined they took improper benefits from a tattoo parlor and sold memorabilia. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Their incredible 2010 season was vacated from the record books by the school and Jim Tressel was eventually run out of town because of the scandal. With players now allowed to profit from their name, image and likeness, Pryor thinks it’s time for the players who were wiped from the history books in 2010 to be fully restored. He tweeted an open letter Tuesday, and wrote in part, “We are calling for our school records and legacy to be restored so that Buckeye Nation can look at us with the same love and fondness that we’ve always had for them.” You can read the full letter below.

    The floor of Rome’s Colosseum is to be restored to its former glory, giving visitors a gladiator's eye view of the ancient amphitheatre's 'majesty'. Italian culture minister Dario Franceschini yesterday announced a £16million contract to restore the arena floor that will enable people to stand where the legendary fighters once battled wild animals and each other to the death.  Engineering firm Milan Ingegneria has won the bid to build and install a retractable wooden arena floor, with the project set to be completed in two years.  ‹ Slide me › Before and after images show Rome’s Colosseum now and what it will look like when restored to its former glory The project – due for completion in 2023 – is reversible, meaning it can be removed if plans for the Colosseum change in the future.  Mr Franceschini said: ‘In 2023, we will have the splendour of the Colosseum with its arena again.’  The new floor will consist of wooden slats fixed into a network of rails. The slats rotate 90 degrees, allowing them to be bunched up to reveal...
    STANFORD (KPIX 5) – Hundreds of student-athletes at Stanford staged a protest outside the school president’s office Monday, hoping to convince the university to reverse its decision to cut 11 varsity sports programs. “It just becomes so much more real when you have a crowd of people who are supporting this effort out in front of the administration, saying ‘This is our livelihood, these are our dreams. Please don’t cut them. Please listen to us,'” said Claire Smythe, a senior on Stanford’s women’s lightweight rowing team.

    WHEN you think of your dream wedding dress, you don't want to settle for anything less than perfect. From the bodice to the train, every detail has to be spot on - so you can imagine one bride-to-be's horror when she took her grandmother's 1950s wedding dress to be restored and it went horribly wrong. 6Bride-to-be was left horrified after getting nan's 1950's wedding dress restoredCredit: @_boringbb_/TikTok TikTok user Julia (@_boringbb_) was hoping to wear her nan's wedding dress for her own wedding and had her heart set on altering the original for her big day.

Several things had gone wrong during the restoration process, with Julia pointing them out in a video she shared online. She revealed that the dress, that had been discoloured over time, hadn't been whitened properly and still looked dull and off-white. 6The dress wasn't fully...
    March 5, 2021 9:25 AM | With information from DPA 15 minutes. The YouTube channel of the former president of the United States (USA), Donald Trump, will be restored when the risk of violence and incitement to it diminish. This was indicated by the executive director of the platform, Susan Wojcicki. “There is still a high risk of violence“He said to indicate that the tycoon’s profile will be unlocked in accordance with the current policies of the video social network. It will be based on a set of indicators to assess the level of violence, reported CNN. Specifically, Wojcicki said that Trump’s YouTube account will also remain suspended due to concerns this week about possible new attacks on Capitol Hill.. Police warned of a “possible plot” by a group of militias to assault the building this Thursday. When the channel is restored, its content will have to be subject to the policies of the platform. In the event that the ex-president breaches the rules again, his profile will be withdrawn again, recalled the executive director. YouTube suspended Trump’s channel on...
    (CNN Business)Former President Donald Trump's YouTube account will eventually be restored in accordance with the platform's current policies, the company's CEO, Susan Wojcicki, said Thursday.Trump's account will be reinstated only when YouTube is confident that the risk of violence has receded, Wojcicki said at an event hosted by the Atlantic Council. YouTube will rely on a mix of indicators to assess the level of violence, including statements by government officials, the readiness level of law enforcement and any violent rhetoric YouTube may observe on its own platform, she said. It is difficult to say when Trump's account may be restored, she said. But, she added, it will continue to be suspended for now in light of the ongoing concerns this week about potential new violence targeting the US Capitol. Officials are on high alert following warnings by the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and US Capitol Police about possible extremist plans to assault the Capitol complex on March 4.

    Upload Weather Pictures/Video School Closures/Delays Warming Centers List Of Boil Water Notices In North Texas DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Nearly 500,000 residents are still without power after the Electric Reliability of Texas said Thursday morning that it made “significant progress” in restoration efforts. The current number of affected residents is down from the 3 million seen on Wednesday after winter storms caused critical issues to the Texas’ power grid. According to ERCOT, power outages remain in areas likely under three categories: ice storm damage to distribution system, areas where emergency load shed needs to be restored manually, large industrial facilities that voluntary went offline. During an morning update, Dan Woodfin, ERCOT senior director of system operations, said although a power restoration efforts are getting better, smaller rotating outages may be needed due to the cold temperatures. “Not out the woods yet. We’re still in very cold conditions. So we’re still seeing much higher than normal winter demand… Today we were able to get over our morning peak without taking additional actions… We still expect a high cold weather peak...
    The CEO of the agency that operates Texas’s power grid gave no timeline on when power would be restored to the more than 3 million Texans experiencing blackouts as icy conditions cripple the region. ERCOT, the agency in charge of Texas’s power grid, is trying to avoid a total blackout in the region by telling utility companies, such as Oncor Electric Delivery, to turn off some customers’ power. “We needed to step in and make sure that we were not going to end up with Texas in a blackout, which could keep folks without power — not just some people without power but everyone in our region without power — for much, much longer than we believe this event is going to last, as long and as difficult as this event is right now,” ERCOT CEO Bill Magness told the Dallas Morning News. But when asked for a timeline on when power could return, Magness said an uncontrolled blackout could leave customers without power indefinitely or for about a month. Gov. Greg Abbott called on Texas legislators to investigate ERCOT...
    NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Despite the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) — which is the state’s primary power grid operator — restoring power to more than half-a-million homes across the state Tuesday night, hundreds of thousands of North Texans are still in the dark and without heat. Some generation is slowly returning. ERCOT was able to direct utilities to restore 600,000 households last night. 2.7 million households still do not have power. — ERCOT (@ERCOT_ISO) February 17, 2021 This makes the third straight day that so many North Texans woke up in the cold and dark. Officials confirmed that as of sunrise Thursday more than 2.7 million Texans were without power and at last check there was no timeline for when power will be fully restored. ERCOT said that while they saw the winter storm heading to Texas it was a too late, because they had not winterized the system and that is what has left providers struggling to source power. Kerry Dunn, with Oncor, told CBS 11 News, “There are still serious generation issues. There’s just not enough generation,...
    (CNN Business)A federal judge has denied Parler's request for a court order blocking Amazon from kicking the social media app off its platform, marking yet another setback in Parler's efforts to get back online.Judge Barbara Rothstein issued a ruling on Thursday saying that Parler had not met the legal requirements for a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction. That decision does not end the litigation, but it does mean that the court will not force Amazon Web Services to allow Parler back onto its cloud hosting platform. Amazon's move effectively kicked Parler off the public internet.Parler, the alternative social media platform favored by the far-right, had sued AWS earlier this month after AWS claimed Parler did not do enough to remove instances of incitement from its website. How Parler is trying to get back onlineAmazon previously said Parler's lawsuit has "no merit" and argued in a legal brief that Parler had "demonstrated unwillingness and inability to remove from the servers of Amazon Web Services ('AWS') content that threatens the public safety."Read MoreParler CEO John Matze said in a court filing...
    President-elect Joe Biden plans a frantic first day in power once his ceremonial swearing in is completed Wednesday. Some 17 executive actions and orders are ready for his initial hours in the Oval Office, designed to tackle everything from climate change to global poverty, all while he cancels the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. “We’re going to act. On Day One, we’re going to act to get COVID under control,” Biden previously boasted, however now he has added climate, immigration, border controls, the U.S. census, and broad regulatory changes to his first agenda.

    The United Nations’ atomic watchdog chief stressed urgency Monday in reviving an Obama-era nuclear deal aimed at thwarting Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, a report says.  Rafael Grossi, the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), spoke out after Iran resumed enriching uranium up to 20% – which is closer to the 90% purity needed to create nuclear weapons, according to Reuters.  "It is clear that we don’t have many months ahead of us. We have weeks," Grossi said in an interview.  Iranian President Hassan Rouhani speaks during a cabinet meeting in Tehran, Iran, on Wednesday, Jan. 6.

    Federal Judge Steve C. Jones, a Barack Obama appointee, is set to decide whether some 200,000 people purged from the Georgia voter rolls in 2019 can be put back on, allowing them to cast a ballot in the January 5 runoff election for two Senate seats. The Law 360 website reported on the consequential case: U.S. District Judge Steve C. Jones said at the end of a three-hour hearing Thursday that he’ll decide “pretty quickly” whether to grant a request by four multi-state voter and civil rights organizations to re-register the purged voters. Voter registration for Georgia’s senatorial runoffs, which will decide the balance of power between Democrats and Republicans in the upper chamber, closed Monday. Counsel for the plaintiff organizations said the state did not follow federal law when it determined in 2019 that 313,243 voters should be removed because they had died or moved out of the jurisdiction in which they were registered to vote. The organizations said their experts found through several system checks that 199,908 of those purged were likely still eligible to vote. “If one person, if...

    By Priscilla Alvarez | CNN The Trump administration must post a public notice that it will accept new applications for the Obama-era program shielding undocumented immigrants who came to the US as children from deportation, a federal judge ordered Friday. Judge Nicholas Garaufis’ latest order builds on his November ruling where he found that Chad Wolf was not legally serving as acting Homeland Security secretary when he signed rules limiting applications and renewals for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The Trump administration tried ending DACA in 2017, but the US Supreme Court blocked its attempt in June. In light of the Supreme Court’s ruling, Wolf issued a memo in July saying that new applications for DACA would not be accepted and renewals would be limited to one year instead of two amid an ongoing review. The memo had sought to buy time while the administration decided its next steps. Plaintiffs welcomed Friday’s order. “Immigrant youth have resisted this cruel administration’s continuous attacks, and once more we have won,” said Johana Larios. “Now, first-time applicants like me will be...
    BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. (AP) — A blighted, 100-year-old building in the Vermont village of Bellows Falls is going to be renovated into 26 apartments. The Bellows Falls Garage once held a number of businesses in the community. The Windham Windsor Housing Trust will convert the building into a combination of studios, one and two-bedroom units. The project will include adding another floor to the structure. The trust’s Peter Paggi says work on the $8.7 million project will begin later this month. Paggi says the former Bellows Falls Garage is one of the few industrial concrete buildings in the state. The Brattleboro Reformer reports the building’s distinctive “waffle” ceiling, made out of poured concrete, will be restored and visible in the apartments,. Paggi said the sign on the front of the building with its name in concrete will also be restored while the wood siding will be removed and returned to its original concrete facade.

    Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Penn.), who was behind a push in the House of Representatives to restore net neutrality, said on Tuesday that if Joe Biden is elected in the upcoming election, net neutrality would be restored. Hide Doyle, the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, made the remarks during a keynote speech at an INCOMPAS virtual event on Tuesday. He also touched on the digital divide and connectivity issues that have been highlighted by the coronavirus pandemic. Hide “I promise you all that we will restore net neutrality and make our broadband networks more competitive,” Doyle said when discussing policy goals if there is a Biden administration—and presumably Democratic control of Congress. “You can be sure that as chairman of the communications and technology subcommittee, those issues are going to be high on my list. Now, in a world where Donald Trump remains president, I don’t see us addressing any of these issues.” The promise for a net neutrality restoration has some backbone, considering Doyle’s championing of the Save the Internet...
    A New York City Real Estate CEO is spearheading an effort to restore order in the city as coronavirus and severe lockdown policies have left it  in shambles, with violent protests taking place and trash and homeless people lining the streets. RXR Realty CEO Scott Rechler told CNBC last week that the city cannot count on a bailout from federal government and that “the city’s leadership needs to be proactive in charting a path forward despite its budgetary challenges.” The CNBC report detailed a letter sent by 150 like-minded business leaders who said the city is quickly losing its status as the center of the U.S. financial sector: “The answer can’t be, simply, that we’re waiting for the federal government to give us funding because it’s not just about money, it’s about management,” Rechler said on “Squawk Box.” “If our city was being managed better and things weren’t wasteful, people like me, who have the benefits of the city, have no problem paying more taxes to have a more vibrant, more equal city for everyone.

We need to allow the investigation to play out in full.” A protester stands in a cloud of tear gas near a burning garbage truck...
    (CNN)Some postal union leaders expressed skepticism that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy's Tuesday announcement that mail-processing equipment will remain in place would fully restore the capacity of the Postal Service.DeJoy announced that all changes being made to the Postal Service -- including moving mail processing equipment and blue collection boxes -- would be suspended until after the November 3 election, but more than a dozen postal union leaders across the country have told CNN that sorting machines have already been removed or taken out of service. CNN previously reported that documents indicated 671 machines used to organize letters or other pieces of mail were slated for "reduction" in postal facilities this year. The Postal Service said in a statement last week that it "routinely moves equipment around its network as necessary to match changing mail and package volumes."Miriam Bell, general president of a local chapter of the American Postal Workers Union in North Carolina, said seven sorting machines at a Charlotte postal facility have been either separated out, dismantled or entirely removed in recent weeks.

    PHOENIX (AP) — A federal court in Maryland on Friday ruled that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program must be restored fully, meaning it must open up to new applicants for the first time in three years. The program allows immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children but who lack legal status to legally work and protects them from deportation. Last month, the Supreme Court ruled that President Donald Trump didn’t properly end the program in 2017. Immigration attorneys argued that meant the Trump administration had to start accepting new applications, but it doesn’t appear to have done so yet. Trump can still end the program. Roughly 650,000 people are enrolled in DACA but only those who were already in the program when it ended have been able to renew. The Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan think tank, estimates an additional 66,000 young immigrants now meet the minimum age requirement of 15 years to apply for DACA and would be eligible under the restored program. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said it is reviewing the ruling....
    SHAMIMA Begum is set to find out her fate today as a court decides if her British citizenship should be restored. Now 20, she was one of three east London schoolgirls who travelled to Syria in 2015 to join ISIS. 4Shamima Begum will find out wether she will be granted her British citizenship back todayCredit: ABC 4She and two other schoolgirls left London to join ISIS in 2015Credit: PA:Press Association She was found more than three years later in a Syrian refugee camp, with then Home Secretary Sajid Javid revoking her British citizenship on national security grounds. She later claimed the decision to strip her of citizenship was unlawful and took legal action against the Home Office, arguing she had been left stateless. Today the Court of Appeal will make a judgement and restore her citizenship or rule against her claims. In February, the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) ruled the decision was lawful, as Ms Begum was "a citizen of Bangladesh by descent" at the time of the 2019 decision. In June, Ms Begum's barrister Tom Hickman QC told...
    By Leigh Thomas | Reuters PARIS – Paris’ centuries-old Notre-Dame Cathedral will be rebuilt as it was before being engulfed in a fire last year, the public body in charge of its restoration said on Thursday. The April 15, 2019 blaze gutted the Gothic landmark and major tourist attraction, destroying the spire and roof in a disaster that stunned the nation. A national heritage and architectural commission approved plans to restore the cathedral to its last “complete, coherent and known” state, including the spire, the restoration body said in a statement. President Emmanuel Macron promised after the fire to rebuild Notre-Dame within five years, and later suggested that a contemporary design could be used for the spire. Church officials hope Notre-Dame will be open for mass by 2024, when Paris is due to host the Olympic Games. (Reporting by Leigh Thomas; Editing by Daniel Wallis)
    A sweeping set of policy proposals released by former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday includes reinstating FCC authority to enforce net neutrality rules. Hide Biden, the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, and Sanders released a long set of policy proposals on Wednesday that touched on climate change, criminal justice reform, health care, immigration, and more. Hide The proposals come from unity task forces created in May, which Biden and Sanders both appointed people appointed to. The proposal on responding to coronavirus mentioned net neutrality—an issue that Sanders and a host of other presidential hopefuls were outspoken about on the 2020 campaign trail. Biden had remained more-or-less silent on the issue until March, which raised some eyebrows from advocates. Hide The proposal—which is essentially a list recommendations for the DNC to adopt as the party’s platform and for Biden to adhere to—makes it clear that there is support to undo the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) repeal of net neutrality and restore its authority to regulate internet service providers. “Democrats...

    Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera called out the "egregious" torture of George Floyd -- an unarmed black man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for nearly eight minutes -- but maintained that order in Minnesota must be restored. In a Friday morning interview on "Fox & Friends," Rivera stated that looters and protesters who robbed stores and burned a Minneapolis precinct over the last three nights have "defamed" Floyd's memory and the "reckless" and "cruel way" he was killed. GEORGE FLOYD UNREST IN MINNESOTA: FEDS, LAW ENFORCEMENT CALL FOR CALM, TIME TO INVESTIGATE AMID RIOTS "Instead of the smug face of the officer with his knee on George's neck killing him [in] eight long minutes the image we have instead is an old lady in a wheelchair getting beaten up by two looters trying to steal her purse. What you have is affordable housing being burnt to the ground, the third precinct being burned, minority-owned businesses being burned," he remarked. "You see...wanton violence that is disgusting in a community, a marginal community, that will take decades to recover if it ever does. It is just a tragedy, a municipal tragedy." During a raid of a Minneapolis Target,...
