    About 78% of Los Angeles police personnel have now received at least one COVID-19 vaccination dose, with 172 LAPD employees receiving their first dose just in the last week, officials said Tuesday. The increase came as police supervisors began hand-delivering notices to unvaccinated LAPD employees informing them that they must start paying for regular COVID-19 testing and be vaccinated by Dec. 18 unless they receive a medical or religious exemption. Officials had been concerned that a large number of officers would refuse to sign those notices, resulting in their being sidelined pending a disciplinary process to terminate their employment, but so far that hasn’t happened. Of 2,158 notices served to unvaccinated employees in recent days, just three — two sworn officers and one civilian employee — refused to sign off on the notices, leading them to be assigned home pending disciplinary hearings, LAPD Chief Michel Moore told the civilian Police Commission on Tuesday morning.

    By ADAM BEAM | The Associated Press SACRAMENTO — More than 80% of the people eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine in California have received at least one dose, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday, a pandemic milestone for the nation’s most populous state amid signs a recent surge in new cases is abating. Newsom said the news puts California among the top 10 states in vaccination rates, despite having the population of 21 other states combined. Inoculations have steadily increased in recent weeks after Newsom announced state employee s and teachers must either be vaccinated or submit to weekly testing. He’s also requiring all of the state’s roughly 2.2 million health care workers to get vaccinated or risk losing their jobs. Newsom says California has averaged 600,000 doses administered for the past two weeks, with the number of vaccine doses administered having increased 44% since July Fourth. “But again, 80% is not where we need to go. We still need to reach out to those that are on the fence,” Newsom said Tuesday at a vaccine site in Oakland. “I...

    At least 10 people are dead and 151 are unaccounted for from the partial collapse of a residential condo building in Surfside, Florida, last week, with officials saying Monday that "intensity" in search efforts "will continue to increase." Search and rescue teams are still working to uncover more survivors who remain unaccounted for, Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said during a press conference near the scene of Thursday's traumatic partial building collapse. Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett said search and rescue effort at the site of the Champlain Towers South collapse will grow in size in the coming days. “The Israeli commander told us that the teams that are out there are working fabulously together," Burkett said, noting a conversation with Israel's National Rescue Unit. "There is a joint effort, there is camaraderie, and everyone has the same goal, which is to pull people out of there. He also added that the intensity and the numbers will continue to increase, which I was very interested to hear."

    Three in five Californians have now received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, federal figures show — the latest milestone in the state’s rollout. The picture is even rosier when looking at only those currently eligible to roll up their sleeves. More than 70% of residents 12 and older are partially vaccinated at this point, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The latest numbers, although upbeat, show the Golden State still has a ways to go in its vaccination efforts. Fewer than half of all Californians, and about 57% of those eligible to receive a shot, are fully inoculated — meaning millions more doses will need to be administered before the state reaches the level of vaccine coverage often cited as necessary to achieve long-lasting community immunity against the coronavirus. And although much of the state is enjoying some degree of protection, officials remain concerned about potential flare-ups among those who are unvaccinated. Those worries are pressing given the spread of the Delta variant of the coronavirus, which may be...
    The Florida Surface Mayor expressed concern Thursday that part of the south of the Sampline Towers could still collapse.“We fear the building could collapse further,” Mayor Charles Burkett told CNN affiliate WSVN. “The problem is that the building has actually collapsed. It has fallen, i.e., there are only centimeters between floors which were 3 meters. It’s heartbreaking because it does not mean we are going to be as successful as we want to be to find living people, “said Burkett. Burkett said the building was built in the 1980s. “There’s no reason this building should collapse, if someone pulls support from below, or gets knocked down, or a sump or something like that collapses,” Burkett said. The decline of this nature is “less than lightning.” It is unclear how many people the mayor is missing, but it is estimated that at least 30 units may have been affected. Burkett told the subsidiary that the dogs had been stopped at midnight, but, in a very dangerous and dark condition, “they were not attacked.” Burkett praised firefighters and first responders for continuing...

    A passenger train in Taiwan partially derailed Friday, leaving at least 48 people dead and over 100 more injured in what a rail official said is the country’s worst-ever rail disaster. The accident occurred near Taroko Gorge National Park on the first day of the nation’s four-day Tomb Sweeping Festival, a religious holiday when people travel to their hometowns for family gatherings and to pay respects at their ancestors' graves. The wrecked train had been carrying more than 400 people and collided with an unmanned vehicle. Images from the crash site showed part of the train inside a tunnel with survivors walking on top of the roof of exposed parts of the train.

    A student is seen on the steps of the closed public school PS 139 in the Ditmas Park neighborhood in Brooklyn of New York, the United States, Oct. 8, 2020.Michael Nagle | Xinhua News Agency | Getty Images The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's long-awaited guidance on how to safely reopen schools during the pandemic could end up keeping kids out of the classroom longer than necessary, four doctors who reviewed the guidance told CNBC. Many public health specialists applauded the agency last week for releasing the clearest and most comprehensive federal guidance yet on whether and to what extent schools should reopen. The 35-page document defines "essential elements" of reopening that include social distancing, universal masking and some testing. It also lays out a set of parameters to gauge how widely the coronavirus is spreading within a community and whether schools should fully reopen for in-person learning or maintain a partial or fully remote learning schedule until the outbreak subsides. However, doctors who spoke with CNBC pointed out notable shortcomings of the guidance, saying that it would keep...
    By Chris Kahn (Reuters) - Seventy-one percent of American adults, including nearly half of all Republicans, believe former President Donald Trump was at least partially responsible for starting the deadly Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol, according to an Ipsos poll conducted for Reuters.     But the national online poll, released on Saturday, also showed that a smaller proportion -- only about half of the country -- thinks Trump should be convicted of inciting insurrection at his Senate impeachment trial or barred from holding public office again.     The survey of 998 adults, which ran after Trump’s lawyers concluded their presentation at the trial on Friday, revealed how many Americans are balancing what they understand to be Trump’s role in the attack with what they think he deserves in response.     When asked what they thought of Trump’s role, 30% of Americans said he was "fully" responsible for sparking the violent confrontation between police and Trump loyalists who broke into Congress in hopes of stopping lawmakers from certifying the November 2020 presidential election results.     Another 25% said he was largely responsible,...
    The brothers of Rep. Andy Biggs’ (R-Ariz.) said their sibling is “at least partially to blame” for the deadly riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Biggs’ brothers, William Biggs and Daniel Biggs, wrote in a letter to the editor to The Arizona Republic that he should be removed from office over what they viewed as his role in inciting the riot. “By attempting to cause uncertainty in the election's outcome, Andy is at least partially to blame for the riot at the Capital on January 6,” the brothers wrote. “Political ambition, peer pressure and fealty to (former President Donald) Trump proved to be too strong a drug to resist. “These are violations of his oath of office and erode the trust of the American electorate. For these reasons we call for the timely removal of Congressman Biggs from office.” The newspaper noted that Biggs called for a forensic audit of his state’s election systems and once said in an interview that “an utter disaster, and really your immediate remedy is to basically nullify Pennsylvania's election.” Aside...

    Balin Brake (left) and John Sanders (right) were protesting George Floyd's death when police partially blinded them on May 30, 2020. Witness video clips from eight different incidents of police brutality on the same May 30 date seem to prove that authorities involved in at least one of the incidents lied in official reports of what happened, according to a Washington Post investigation. Other officials were caught in apparent policy breaches highlighted when the Post evaluated slow-motion forms of witness video, traffic surveillance tapes, and other forms of video footage. In the newspaper’s probe, reporters interviewed eight victims who were all partially blinded when police used “less lethal” weapons against them at George Floyd protests from California to Ohio. Floyd, a Black man, died in Minneapolis police custody May 25 after a white cop kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes in an incident that inspired anti-police brutality protests throughout the nation.

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady said there could be some students in Chicago Public Schools classrooms this fall, if the city continues to control COVID-19 cases.CPS parents and students have been anxiously awaiting word on whether schools would open for in-person instruction."I broadly feel good that if we are able to keep our outbreak basically in control, as it Is here, we will be in a position to have some capacity for in-person instruction," Arwady said on a call with reporters Friday.It's the strongest statement yet from city officials about students perhaps returning to the classroom. The district is continuing talks with the Chicago Teachers Union about what the next school year will look like."The statement is premature. We actually learned of that statement as we were talking through details of the negotiated plan," said CTU Vice President Stacy Davis Gates. "To say that we are shocked and disappointed that this is the way things are going is an understatement."Before schools open, teachers want class size limits to ensure social distancing, as well...
