    Senator Patty Murray (D- WA) took to the Senate floor Thursday to call for permanent Daylight Saving Time. Yes, for those of you who forgot, this Sunday it’s time to fall back once again. For years, lawmakers across the country have been working to make DST permanent, but Congress has not seriously taken up the issue. On Thursday Murray said, “I don’t know a single person who loves to go through the trouble of figuring out whether their microwave or their oven has the hour right, or anyone who looks forward to the sun setting earlier and earlier every winter.” But beyond convenience, this really is a matter of health and safety. Studies have shown that our switch to standard time can increase rates of seasonal depression, as well as heart problems and the risk of stroke. Researchers also believe that if we made daylight saving time permanent, there would be fewer car accidents and evening robberies, thanks to a more regular schedule and an extra hour of sun. She also argued it would lead to “greater energy saving.” “Americans...

    Nearly 30 more Americans were evacuated from Afghanistan via a charter flight, the State Department announced Saturday. State Department spokesperson Ned Price said in a statement on Saturday that a Qatar Airways charter flight departed Kabul on Friday with 28 U.S. citizens and seven lawful permanent residents. The announcement comes as the U.S. seeks to evacuate approximately 100 remaining American citizens who stayed in Afghanistan following the U.S.’s full withdrawal of troops on Aug. 31. Zalmay Khalilzas, the U.S.’s envoy for Afghanistan Reconciliaton, said Friday on Twitter that more Americans were able to leave on a Qatar Airways flight, but didn’t say how many were on the plane. The administration hasn’t given a specific count on how many U.S. citizens are still looking to leave Afghanistan, but officials have said it was around 100. The White House said on Sept. 10 that 21 American citizens and were evacuated from Afghanistan. Nineteen of those citizens were evacuated on a Qatar Airways flight, and two additional citizens travelled an overland route with 11 lawful permanent residents. The day before,...
    WAKIL KOHSAR/AFP via Getty Images A few more Americans and U.S. lawful permanent residents have gotten out of Afghanistan, the White House said on Friday. National Security council spokesperson Emily Horne announced in a statement the U.S. ” facilitated the additional departures of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents both on a chartered Qatar Airways flight from Kabul and via overland passage to a neighboring country.” “The Qatar Airways flight held 19 U.S. citizens and the party traveling overland included two U.S. citizens and 11 lawful permanent residents,” the statement continued. After U.S. forces left Afghanistan last week, the Biden administration acknowledged that under 200 Americans still remain. Recent polls show most Americans supported withdrawal from Afghanistan, but disapproved of President Joe Biden’s handling of the chaotic withdrawal. The statement from Horne notes that there are still Americans in Afghanistan, and said, “We will continue to provide proven options for leaving. It is up to Americans says remain whether they choose to take them.” Have a tip we should know? tips@mediaite.com

Additionally, the State Department said late Thursday that 10 American citizens and 11 U.S. permanent residents were evacuated on a Qatar Airways charter flight that left Kabul’s international airport earlier that day.

    MONTCLAIR, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Some New Jersey businesses already struggling because of the pandemic took another hit from last week’s storm. Ilson Goncalves, the owner of Samba Montclair, sold his home after the pandemic hit to save his restaurant. He used the $180,000 from that sale to expand his space so that customers could eat indoors safely, but he feels Mother Nature is putting everything he’s taking chances on down the drain.

He captured the power behind last week’s storm on his cell phone. “The water came so fast,” he told CBS2’s Cory James. It flooded his basement, destroying $8,000 worth of food and damaging his newly purchased air conditioning system. “Everything went to garbage,” he said. “And FEMA come out with $1,000 to $5,000. What am I going to do with $5,000 if my damage is over $64,000?” Now Goncalves, along with other nearby small business owners in Montclair,...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — At least 50,000 Afghans are expected to be admitted into the United States following the fall of Kabul as part of an “enduring commitment” to help people who aided the American war effort and others who are particularly vulnerable under Taliban rule, the secretary of homeland security said Friday. Tens of thousands of Afghans have already made it through security vetting and arrived in the U.S. to begin the process of resettlement. Exactly how many more will come and how long it will take remain open questions, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said as he outlined the effort. “Our commitment is an enduring one,” he told reporters. “This is not just a matter of the next several weeks. We will not rest until we have accomplished the ultimate goal.” Mayorkas and other Biden administration officials are providing the most detailed look to date at what began as a frantic and chaotic effort to evacuate U.S. citizens, permanent residents and Afghans before the Aug. 30 withdrawal of American troops and the end of the country’s longest war. Nearly 130,000...
    IKE UGBO has left Chelsea and joined Genk on a permanent move following official confirmation from the Premier League giants. Ugbo was promoted to the Blues' senior squad in 2017 following a 10-year spell in the academy but never made an appearance with the first team. 2Ike Ugbo has left Chelsea for Genk on a permanent move following a series of loan spellsCredit: Getty The striker was loaned out to a raft of clubs in the last four years, such as Barnsley, MK Dons, Scunthorpe, Roda and Cercle Brugge despite his 25 goals in 51 matches for the junior squads. The 22-year-old's most recent loan stint in Bruges last season turned out to be the most impressive as he amassed a total of 17 goals in 34 appearances across all competitions. That led to interest from Genk, who got their man for a fee that could reach up to €7.5million (£6.4m) with add-ons. Chelsea confirmed the former England Under-20 international's departure with a short post on Twitter that showed him celebrating with the west Londoners' shirt. The reigning European champions...
    Diegoni leader: “You need to talk to the Taliban too” Diegoni Thailand President Ulrich Lilly has spoken out in support of talks with the Taliban on safe escape routes from Afghanistan. “You should talk to the Taliban too,” said the head of the Evangelical Welfare Association on SWR. Lilly said “less difficult politics” is needed. President Diagoni welcomed the fact that several German federal states have agreed to accept refugees in Afghanistan. “We have more well-established structures and resources since 2015, so we are certainly not overwhelmed in any way by the few thousand people in this big country,” the Protestant theologian explained. Helping the people is Germany’s “duty and obligation in the aftermath of this catastrophic exodus of the West from Afghanistan.” Lilly called on the German government to work within the framework of the European Union for immediate solutions for the repatriation of refugees from Afghanistan and for a permanent resettlement program, namely permanent right to stay. He named women at risk, human rights activists and non-Muslims at risk. “We will see big movements of refugees,” Lilly...
    The pandemic appears to have driven an exodus from New York to Florida with more than 33,000 New Yorkers heading south for more sun, looser COVID-19 restrictions and cheaper taxes, over the past year.  According to data from the Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles 33,565 people from New York applied for Florida drivers licenses from September 2020 through March 2021.  The number represents an increase of 32percent over the previous year, when 25,370 New Yorkers applied for Florida IDs.  While the pandemic appears to have driven the uptick in transplants, Florida has long been a popular destination for New Yorkers, more than from any other state, with data from April 2019 to April 2021 showing 104,960 New Yorkers trading their New York drivers licenses for Florida ones.  Florida was the number one destination for Americans moving during the pandemic, according to a study by Move.org, while New York was the second most popular place in which Americans were seeking to leave  New Yorker Sara Guando (left) moved to Tampa in February due to pandemic...

    Florida’s Dan Mullen would like to see the SEC do away with permanent crossover opponents so the Gators could face Alabama and others more often. For the first time since 2011, the Florida Gators will host the Alabama Crimson Tide in Gainesville for a game at The Swamp. Head coach Dan Mullen doesn’t want to wait another decade for that matchup to land on the schedule. “I’d love for us to maybe do away with the permanent crossover team, so you get these type of games more often,” Mullen said, per Jarod Hamilton of The Tuscaloosa News. “I think for the players, for the fanbases, I really think it’s exciting to see some more of maybe mixing up the teams from the West and playing two different teams each year instead of a permanent crossover. I think that would be really exciting, so you get this matchup. “We’d love to see that more. There’s 10 teams that will visit ー there’s non-conference teams that will visit The Swamp a lot more than conference teams. I think you’d love to see...
    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has accused Gov Andrew Cuomo of preventing local officials from moving at least 8,000 homeless people living in Midtown Manhattan hotels to permanent shelters.   De Blasio addressed the issue at a press briefing on Wednesday where he said he's been waiting since May 18 for Cuomo's authorization to start the relocation process of the homeless individuals who were temporarily put up in about 60 to 70 hotels near Hells' Kitchen and Times Square during the pandemic.   'Everything is ready to go,' de Blasio said. 'It is time to move homeless folks who were in hotels for a temporary period of time back to shelters where they can get the support they need.' De Blasio's comments came as his administration faces mounting pressure to curtail violence in New York City and the surrounding boroughs, particularly in the southern half of Manhattan were many of the hotels accommodating the homeless are located.  The police precinct that includes Times Square and many of the hotels has seen a 183 percent spike in felony assaults and 173 percent spike...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — As the weather warms up, the number of unsheltered people rises.

Housing Stability Director David Hewitt says COVID-19 made it impossible to do a count of how many people are unsheltered. “One outside is too many, so we take that as a starting principle,” Hewitt said. “In the midst of a global pandemic, in the midst of civil unrest, you know, following the murder of George Floyd, and all of our services were having to change the way they worked and adapt and try to cater to people’s health needs, and...

    By Anna Mehler Paperny TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's recent move to offer permanent residency to more foreigners living and working in the country is a short-term solution to the economic problems spurred by a pandemic-related immigration slowdown, analysts say, while critics argue the strategy excludes too many vulnerable people. With travel restrictions in place, visa offices closed and immigration applications stalled, the Canadian government finds itself on the back foot as it attempts to reach its target of attracting a record 401,000 new permanent residents in 2021. The country, which admitted 184,370 people in that category last year, the lowest number since 1998, is turning its attention to the more than 1 million temporary residents within its borders to boost the numbers, inviting some to apply for permanent residency. Economists, however, say the move will not have a noticeable impact on Canada's economic growth and is not a fix to the country's long-term demographic challenges, including an aging population. "In the short-term, it's nice that they're targeting these sorts of people. It's really just a change of status," said Andrew...
    February 23, 2021 7:21 AM | With information from DPA 15 minutes. More than 3 million migrants would immediately obtain the green card or a green card, which allows legal residence in the United States (USA), if the Citizenship Law promoted by the president, Joe Biden, is successful in Congress. These people, for the most part, came to the country as children. The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) estimates that almost 3.3 million people would benefit from this reform. Among them, more than 1.3 million dreamers or dreamers, as those who arrived with their undocumented parents and have lived practically their entire lives in the US are known. Another 1.1 million correspond to workers in the primary sector. To these would be added 342,000 more if spouses and minor children are taken into account. What’s more, the study figures at 279,000 potential beneficiaries within the Temporary Protected Status (TPS), which is granted to certain groups. The migrant law, which is still pending, is being promoted by several Democrats at the request of Biden. The regulation outlines a plan so that the...
    CAMPTON HILLS, Ill. (WLS) -- The nation is still dealing with historically high unemployment as the pandemic rages across the United States. But some unemployed Illinoisans have hope that more help is on the horizon."I realized I'm almost 50, I'm unemployed. I'm counting on this stuff until I can find something else," said John Belli.Belli has been unemployed for seven months. He lost his sales job in mid-June. Due to problems with the Illinois Department of Employment Security, he said he didn't get his first unemployment check until October."It got more and more discouraging," Belli said. "And you just want to pull your hair out sometimes when there's just nothing you can do."Now, according to the latest jobs report, 900,000 more people across the country have joined Belli and are now unemployed.

    LITTLE VILLAGE — A Southwest Side alderman and a coalition of community groups are urging city leaders to extend free flu shots through the winter and expand coronavirus testing capabilities across the city. Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25th) and a coalition dubbed the People’s Response want city and state officials to prioritize adding permanent testing sites in Black and Latino communities. “The testing that we need in our community hasn’t gotten to our communities,” Sigcho-Lopez said at a press conference outside the Piotrowski Park Field house in Little Village on Tuesday. “We have been promised time after time that we will expand testing capabilities. We haven’t had that.” The group also wants the city to provide more flu shots through its free program. The current offering of free flu vaccines is scheduled to run until Nov. 14. “This is unacceptable,” Lonette Sims, co-chair Black Women Organizing for Power, said of the ending of free flu vaccines. “Approximately 270,000 lack health insurance. We need this vital resource now, especially during pandemic.” Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez and a coalition of community groups called on city...

    More than six months after the last Denver fire chief resigned, Mayor Michael Hancock has chosen a new head of the Denver Fire Department, which is responsible not just for fighting fires but also responding to medical emergencies and other duties. At a press conference on October 8, Hancock introduced Desmond Fulton, a longtime member of the DFD who had been serving as deputy chief, as the person who will lead that department going forward. Fulton has "shown his commitment to our community and equity and to working to build a more inclusive department that reflects the community it serves," Hancock said before handing over the mic. Fulton noted that he's proud of the men and women with whom he's served, but said he also recognizes that there are certain cultural challenges within the department. "We’re in a different environment and different times. And we need to do a better job of appreciating each other and appreciating each other’s differences. It’s these differences that gives us our strength and makes us who we are as a department," said Fulton, who began...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — A pop-up food pantry in Lakeview helps people in need every Sunday afternoon, and every Chicagoan is invited. The pop-up pantry is a labor of love, hosted by St. Mary of the Lake Catholic Parish and Lakeview Pantry. Last spring, it was held at the parish church in Buena Park. But now, it has a permanent home at the Lakeview Pantry headquarters at 3945 N. Sheridan Rd., south of Irving Park Road. Guests are offered pre-packaged boxes of dry goods, produce, dairy, and more. But one of the forces behind the pantry said there is a lot more than food involved. “This is going to be a big signal to everyone in the city that we are brothers and sisters after all. The last few months have been months of so much negativity, so much division in our country; in our own city. This will be a sign that says, whoever you are and regardless of your situation, you’re welcome and we’re going to help you – no questions asked.” Rev. Manuel Dorantes St. Mary Of The...
    The Bay Area cashed in with the second round of funding from the state’s “Project Homekey” program, which promises to use $600 million in federal dollars to purchase permanent housing for those living on California’s streets. Gov. Gavin Newsom announced $236 million in grants for projects in the second round, following a $76.6 million initial round of funding announced last week. Some of that new money will go toward turning more than 500 units between San Francisco, Oakland and Santa Clara into permanent housing, as well as doubling the capacity of shelter beds in Mountain View, Newsom said Monday. In Sonoma County, the Kashia Band of Pomo Indians also became the first Native American tribe to receive part of the grant money. That means the state has dolled out more than $300 million over the course of two weeks, including tens of millions in the Bay Area. “There’s simply not a state in America that has committed this kind of capital infusion to purchase motels and provide for permanent support and housing for homeless individuals,” Newsom said Monday at a...

    More than half of American businesses that closed down due to economic lockdowns are permanently shuttered, according to data Yelp published Wednesday. There’s been a 23% increase in the number of business closures since mid-July, with the number of permanent closures reaching 96,966, representing 60% of closed businesses that will not be reopening, the data show. The closures came after government officials began instituting stay at home orders in March to slow the pandemic, which originated in China before spreading to the U.S. “Overall, Yelp’s data shows that business closures have continued to rise with a 34% increase in permanent closures since our last report in mid-July,” Justin Norman, Yelp’s vice president of data science, told CNBC on Wednesday.

    More than 100 business CEOs have signed onto a letter urging Congress and the White House to come to agreement on a fourth coronavirus relief deal to head off what could be a 'catastrophic' wave of small business closings. The letter, steered by Starbucks chairman emeritus Howard Schultz, comes as Democrats and Republicans are hung up over a deal that would extend expired $600 per week federal unemployment benefits.  They want to extend the Paycheck Protection Program to send a new round of loans to small businesses. Many used the program as a lifeline, while others weren't able to qualify or didn't apply, as millions of Americans joined the unemployment rolls amid the coronavirus pandemic.  Starbucks chairman emeritus Howard Schultz spearheaded the effort Also signing on to the letter to the top House and Senate leaders of both parties are Facebook CEO Sharyl Sandberg and basketball great and entrepreneur Earvin 'Magic' Johnson.  'By Labor Day, we foresee a wave of permanent closures if the right steps are not taken soon,' the CEOs wrote.

    The coronavirus' impact on American society could reverberate for years, shaking the economy and even our politics to their core. But the greatest public health crisis in a century is also having another profound effect — millions of people are moving around the country as colleges close, jobs vaporize and multiple family generations cluster together to ride out the storm. As many Americans have moved in recent months as typically move in an entire year, a recent Pew Research Center survey indicates. The trend is most apparent among young people: More than a third of people under age 30 said health or financial concerns stemming from the pandemic forced them to move in with family, take a roommate or prompted someone they knew to move, according the survey. Pew found that 12% of survey respondents moved in the past few months — 3% because of coronavirus and 8% for other reasons. Contrast that to a typical year, in which less than 10% of Americans move for any reason, according to Census data. That figure has been on the decline for decades, with Americans...
    DES MOINES, Iowa – Jacklynn Walters has homeschooled her oldest child for the last 6 years.  When schools closed early this year to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, this mom of four says she didn’t have to worry about her children’s education. “I had a number of parents concerned about their child getting behind because they weren’t finishing that last little bit of their school semesters," she said. "It wasn’t something in my mind. I didn’t have to worry about my child getting behind or even in the future." Walters volunteers as the media director for the homeschooling organization Midwest Parent Educators. She says more parents are inquiring about homeschooling. “We’re getting a number of phone calls and emails from parents that specifically requesting workshops, or help on how to homeschool, and what does that look like,” Walters told Fox News. “They also have questions about the curriculum and if they have other options other than virtual public schools.” Interest is growing nationwide.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – As businesses were forced to close to help stop the spread of the coronavirus,  KC Daiquiri Shop co-owners Calvin Vick and Kinley Strickland weren’t sure if they would survive the pandemic.  “We didn’t know what we were going to do,” Strickland told Fox News. “We didn’t know what the future of business was going to be like.” The business suffered because people stopped coming in. Both Vick and Strickland were forced to lay off their employees as a result of the loss in revenue. But, that all changed after Missouri Gov. Mike Parson signed an executive order this past March allowing restaurants and bars to serve alcohol for takeout.  “That saved our business,” Vick said. “We noticed that business started picking up and we started getting new faces.” KC Daiquiri Shop co-owners Calvin Vick and Kinley Strickland say Missouri Gov. Mike Parson's executive order allowing restaurants and bars to serve alcohol to-go is what saved their business from going under during the current pandemic.
