    New York : Members of the Dominican community of El Choco, in the Padre Las Casas municipality, in Azua, asked the authorities to criminally prosecute the suspect of raping and making pregnant a minor under 12 years of age, who is already 7 months pregnant.

    President Joe Biden denounced the lack of Black head coaches in the NFL during an interview that aired during half time of Super Bowl LV.  After seven head coaching vacancies in the league, only one Black head coach – David Culley of the Houston Texans – was hired during this year's hiring cycle. Even after Culley's hiring, there are only three Black head coaches in the NFL – a point of criticism coming from sportscasters, former players and now, the president.  "You've got to go out and look -- there's innumerous, incredibly qualified African American coaches out there," Mr. Biden told Westwood One. While discussing the significance of representation, he brought up his decision to pick Vice President Kamala Harris, the first ever female, Black and South Asian vice president in U.S. history. "When I picked a Black woman to be vice president, I don't know how many hundreds of...
    The hashtag #SuperSpreaderBowl started trending on Twitter as critics called out maskless fans and a perceived lack of social distancing in the stands at Super Bowl 55.  Some 22,000 fans packed into Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Sunday night to watch the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Kansas City Chiefs.  Shortly after kickoff, the game itself wasn't the only thing grabbing attention on social media.  Dozens of Twitter users watching from the safety of their living rooms began sounding off about how the stands at the stadium appeared alarmingly full for an event taking place in the middle of a pandemic.  A bevy of precautions were put in place to have fans attend the game in person safely, including limiting capacity to 30 percent and requiring masks except when eating or drinking.  CBS Sports noted that the stands may look more full than they actually are, because roughly...
    Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has landed a handful of head coaching interviews over the last two years, but he has yet to receive an opportunity to lead his own NFL franchise. When it comes to minority candidates, Bieniemy is easily the clear-cut favorite. He’s been the coordinator for the Chiefs over the last three years, and with quarterback Patrick Mahomes leading the way, Kansas City has made three-straight AFC Championships and two Super Bowl appearances. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM All of that success, and Bieniemy has yet to get that promotion. The hiring of minority head coaches has been a huge problem in the NFL. There are only three Black head coaches in the league among the 32 franchises -- Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Brian Flores of the Miami Dolphins, and David Culley of the Houston Texans. "I did not ask...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Former Bears linebacker Sam Acho knows about defense. He’s also big on social justice and making real changes like turning a West Side liquor store into a food mart. On Thursday, CBS 2’s Matt Zahn talked with Acho about the lack of minority hires in the NFL. The Texans were the only team, out of seven openings, to hire a Black head coach – David Culley – making just three total in the league. Zahn asked Acho what needs to happen for real change. “It seems like a lot of people love to fit in, love to pretend, and love to fake. I think there are a lot of owners out there that want to make the right decision, but sometimes the right decision isn’t always the easy decision,” Acho said, “and so I think being you – letting the world see you as a...
    It’s easy to feel powerless in 2021. There’s not much you can do, outside of staying inside and wearing a mask when you go out, to try to stay safe and halt the spread of COVID-19, and no one knows what to expect from the timing of the vaccine rollout. If you need to take a break from that uncertainty, spend some time with Asura’s Wrath, currently on PlayStation Now. The cult classic from 2012 stars a character who never feels powerless for long, as long as there is something around to punch. Here is the setup: You are a god, and you are betrayed, so you have to punch everything until you get what you want. Asura is over-the-top as a character, and the world around him is even sillier and grander than anything he can possibly do. Thousands of years fly by in an instant. The...
    Megyn Kelly said CNN and other media outlets are partly responsible for the violence that broke out in the Capitol on Jan. 6 because journalists couldn't check their "personal feelings about” former President Donald Trump. “Part of the reason we saw what happened at the Capitol here two weeks ago is because there had been a complete lack of trust in the media, and people don’t know where to turn for true information. They don’t trust the media anymore. And it’s a major problem,” Kelly said in an interview with BBC Newsnight Saturday. “They hated him so much they checked their objectivity. And it wasn’t just CNN. All of them did. They just couldn’t check their own personal feelings about him,” Kelly said. She added that “the media destroyed itself” but that Trump “certainly helped.” Kelly, who worked at Fox News during the 2016 election cycle, said she first...
    MODESTO (CBS13) – Five people were arrested and 19 bikes were impounded after hundreds of cyclists took over the roadways in Modesto. You couldn’t miss it. First gathering at a local park, the group steadily grew to around 300 cyclists who then rode out into the streets, according to the Modesto Police Department. “To me, it’s just the lack of respect for the law, that’s all,” said cyclist Daniel Alba. Alba, the head of Mid Valley Pedals cycling group, worried the large crowd will eventually lead to someone getting hit. Police say it wasn’t long before they started taking 9-1-1 calls about the bicyclists not stopping at stop signs and taking up all lanes of the roadway, blocking vehicles from moving. “It’s not the thing we want to hear. It shouldn’t be happening,” Alba said. “If you’re doing the right thing, these things should not be happening.” Officers say they...
    Savannah Rychcik January 21, 2021 0 Comments Former FBI Director James Comey is attributing the decline of trust in American institutions to what he believes is former President Donald Trump’s lack of honesty. “A large part of the drop in trust in our institutions, and in our civil society, has been the product of relentless lying by a demagogue president,” Comey said during an interview with ABC 7.30 He added, “It’s a depressing thing to admit but lying works when it comes from the top office in the land, and then it’s echoed in media and by other enablers in and outside of government.” Comey suggested it is “normally a healthy thing” for individuals to believe what a leader says in a democracy. He proceeded to call it “unhealthy” when the leader is a “sociopath.” “That shapes, unfortunately, millions of people in a harmful way,” Comey continued....

Carmichael: Well, you see across the country now in K-12, it’s even worse than it was. And it was bad. But you see this 1619 Project. You see all this teaching about stuff that really doesn’t have anything to do with the core things that young people should be learning. I’m talking about now math...

    Fake heiress Anna Sorokin, who was jailed for swindling banks, hotels and members of New York high society out of $275,000, runs a personal blog from prison where she complains about the lack of 'vegan French dressing' and 'cocoa body butter'.  The lengthy post gives an account of how Covid-19 has impacted life at Albion Correctional Facility, a medium-security facility in upstate New York, and opens with the line: 'Being in prison mostly feels like extended quarantining, only with a bunch of murderers, and we still can get our hair done.' The website also gives Sorokin's supporters details of how to contact her, and the option of transferring her money via cryptocurrencies Bitcoin and Ethereum.  During her spree, Sorokin, 30, also known as Anna Delvey, lived in luxury New York hotel rooms that she couldn't afford, promised a friend an all-expenses trip to Morocco and then left her with the $62,000...
    Harvey Weinstein's former assistant Zelda Perkins has claimed her 'lack of ambition' in the film industry and a 'mixture of humour and aggression' protected her from ending up like the predator's other victims. Ms Perkins worked for the disgraced movie mogul at his London office in her early twenties. She signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in 1998 after claiming the producer sexually harassed her and tried to rape one of her colleagues, Rowena Chiu, in Italy.  Ms Perkins said she 'naively' thought that reporting his alleged abuse to the firm's family-friendly parent company Disney would result in his dismissal, but instead was warned against speaking out.  Both women quit their jobs after signing agreements forbidding them to discuss the incident with anyone, including their own family. Ms Perkins bravely breached the agreement to speak out in 2017.  Speaking to the Guardian, Ms Perkins said finally going public after staying silent for two...

    Phylicia Rashad stars and narrates Netflix's "Jingle Jangle." Gareth Gatrell/Netflix David E. Talbert said the inspiration for his Netflix film "Jingle Jangle" came after his son asked to play with his LEGOs while he showed him classics like "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." Talbert said that he realized his son "wasn't into it at all" because he didn't see himself reflected in the films. "He has Black Panther and Miles Morales on his wall," he said.

    Democrat Joe Biden has ousted Donald Trump from the White House, yet for many Democrats and progressives the results of the election have produced mostly disillusionment, even despair. The reason isn’t hard to decipher. They expected the end of the Trump era to be marked by a “blue wave,” a surge of progressive political power that would sweep away not only Trump but right-wing obstructionism in the Senate and, in time, even the Supreme Court. But the wave isn’t visible in the results, so what’s consumed the left is pessimism and gloom. The model for this take comes from the liberal writer Eric Levitz of New York Magazine, who pronounced the election “a nigh-catastrophic setback for progressive politics in the United States.” Levitz declared the Senate lost to Democrats for at least a decade to come and even cast doubt on the party’s ability to hold on to the White House in 2024. All this before all the votes have...

Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Election was on Tuesday. We still don’t know the outcome. What happens next? And how long does it go on? Well, if you follow the Florida recount 20 years ago, you probably assume you’ve got some idea how this election is going to play out. Officials in contested states will carefully count all the available votes, supervised by bipartisan observers from both campaigns to reassure all of us, it’s on the level. If they find irregularities or they see questions of fraud, we’ll all get to learn exactly what those allegations are and how they were resolved. That’s what we did in 2000. Hanging chads? Remember those? We put them on TV so people could see the...

    CNN’s Van Jones and Rick Santorum got heated after the presidential debate Thursday night on the exchange on immigration and President Donald Trump’s claims about children at the border. Santorum said that Trump “completely skewered Joe Biden” as a typical politician and he dinged Biden for looking at his watch. Jones followed up by saying Trump “did his best ever, and his best was not good enough.” “It was the same stuff, just with a little bit less volume on it, but no plan for the future,” Jones continued. “He sounded better, he looked better, but there was nothing there.” He went on to call out Trump’s “shocking lack of humanity” in his response to children at the border separated from their parents, saying, “No apology. I mean, a human being just would’ve said, ‘Hey, I can’t sleep at night just thinking about those kids. I’m doing everything I...
    Retired Admiral William McRaven, who served as commander of U.S. Special Operations Command and oversaw the raid that took out Osama bin Laden, has written for the Wall Street Journal that he voted for Joe Biden. In the past few years, McRaven has spoken out multiple times very critically about President Donald Trump’s leadership and prioritizing his “ego” over national security. “I am a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, small-government, strong-defense and a national-anthem-standing conservative,” McRaven writes. But, I also believe that black lives matter, that the Dreamers deserve a path to citizenship, that diversity and inclusion are essential to our national success, that education is the great equalizer, that climate change is real and that the First Amendment is the cornerstone of our democracy.” In laying out why he’s voting for Biden, he says “we need a leader of integrity whose decency and sense of respect reflects the values we...

Over the past several months, disputes over sourcing erupted across the garment industry. Orders were canceled, payments were stalled and employees were furloughed as retailers faced widespread store closures and plummeting sales due to the coronavirus crisis. The effects were ultimately felt by garment workers, who were also sent home without pay or lost their jobs, and factories subsequently shut down for good. As the COVID-19 outbreak rages on, consumers are keeping a closer eye than ever on brand responsibility, which trickles all the way down from a company’s economic and social...
    City parents are flying blind. The Department of Education has yet to announce rudimentary policies three weeks into the new school year — leaving families frustrated and wanting answers. The DOE still doesn’t have a grading system in place and hasn’t released any attendance figures for the academic year thus far. There has been no decision on screened school admissions metrics for next year. No dates have been provided regarding annual tests for Gifted and Talented programs or specialized high schools and overall application processes remain unclear. The DOE has also balked at releasing the results of a parent survey despite promising to reveal them months ago. “There are three words that describe what parents are feeling right now,” said Queens mom Adriana Aviles. “Frustration, anger, and sadness. Frustration because we have no answers. Anger because there is no communication from Tweed. And sadness because our kids are missing...

    CNN blasted the Trump campaign Saturday for once again holding a rally with supporters crowded closely together and very few people wearing masks, except for the obvious exception of those standing within camera view behind President Donald Trump. CNN host Ana Cabrera noted that despite the pandemic, the Rose Garden event where Trump announced the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court featured “few masks, no social distancing.” “Even Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, not practicing what he’s been preaching about taking coronavirus precautions,” said Cabrera as Azar and other attendees of the SCOTUS announcement were shown without face masks. Cabrera introduced CNN corespondent Ryan Nobles, and asked “We saw very few masks at the Rose Garden ceremony earlier and we see a few masks behind the president, but what are you seeing out there in the crowd, because clearly, there isn’t any social distancing?” “You know, Ana, this is like every single one of these...
    The CEO of Whole Foods Market says the US is experiencing more COVID-19-related deaths because Americans are fatter than the rest of the world. John Mackey, who co-founded the organic supermarket chain in 1980 before selling it Amazon in 2017, said it is likely the country has been hit worse by the pandemic due to the higher cases of diabetes and heart disease brought on by poor diets.  The 67-year-old, who is a well known advocate for the organic food industry, told The New York Times on Thursday that the US has 'moved in the wrong direction' when it comes to changes in eating habits over the last 50 years.   Whole Foods CEO John Mackey says the US coronavirus problem is closely tied with the country's issue with obesity  Mackey co-founded organic supermarket chain Whole Foods Market in 1980 before selling it to Amazon in 2017  'Statistically, we...
    (CNN)Outrage and heartbreak boiled over into protests in many cities across the US on Wednesday after news broke that none of the three officers involved in Breonna Taylor's death were charged with her killing.More than six months after Taylor was shot to death after Louisville police officers broke down the door to her apartment while executing a warrant, a grand jury decided to indict only one of the three officers involved on first-degree wanton endangerment charges, which does not hold the officer responsible for her death. From Louisville to Los Angeles, to Atlanta and New York, masses of people congregated to protest the decision."We will go to our graves proclaiming that Breonna Taylor did not get justice from the Kentucky attorney general's office," attorney for the Taylor family, Ben Crump, told CNN's Don Lemon Wednesday.Taylor, a 26-year-old Black emergency room technician and aspiring nurse, was described by relatives as a...
    Niners legend Jerry Rice was only 3-for-10 passing in his career, but he has proven to be a fairly effective Monday morning quarterback in retirement. The best wide receiver of all time had some notes for the 49ers’ depleted receiving corps Monday morning after their disappointing season-opening loss to the Cardinals. In an appearance on 95.7 The Game’s morning show, he was not focused on route-running or catching passes, instead offering a broader criticism of the 49ers’ disposition and body language. “During the break they were playing music and we had certain guys dancing that hadn’t done anything on the football field. They didn’t have a reception or anything,” Rice said, declining to name names. “That’s not the standard of the San Francisco 49ers. If you want to dance or do whatever, you shouldn’t be wearing that uniform. You gotta be productive, you’ve gotta contribute to the...
    President Donald Trump has vehemently died the allegations in a recent bombshell article by The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, who reported that according to his sources, Trump has repeatedly insulted members of the U.S. military and described them as “suckers” and “losers.” But Goldberg’s reporting has been corroborated by CNN, the Washington Post, the Associated Press and even Fox News, and Never Trump conservative David Frum — in an article published by The Atlantic on September 8 — stresses that one isn’t seeing a lot of veterans rising to Trump’s defense. “Trump’s protestations have been seconded by his wife,” Frum observes. “The first lady’s endorsement of Trump’s pro-military credentials has been repeated by Trump cabinet secretaries, as well as by Fox News talking heads, and by a recipient of a Trump pardon. Amid the clamor, it’s easy to overlook those who are not yelling, those who are keeping silent. Where are...
    Newfield Elementary School in Stamford, Connecticut, prepares for its first day of classes. John Moore/Getty Images Schools are reopening for in-person and virtual learning, but there's still uncertainty on how it can be done safely. Economist Emily Oster and a team of researchers are setting out to provide school leaders and policymakers with information on how schools are reopening.  The team will survey public, private, independent, charter, and Catholic schools to gather baseline data that will be available to the public.  Teachers, principals, and school leaders can volunteer to participate in bi-weekly surveys.  Sign up for our new parenting newsletter Insider Parenting here.

    Miami — Two people died last Friday when a plane crashed in Broward County, Florida when they ran out of fuel. The reports of the aircraft’s mechanics show the excellent condition of the aircraft, and also the decision of one of the pilots, who, confident because of the amount of fuel he was carrying, decided to leave without recharging. The pilot of the aircraft was identified by his family and responded to the name of Joaquín Ricalde Magana, according to local media. Magana was at the wheel of the twin-engine Aero Commander that exploded in the area of ​​Pembroke Road and S. Park Road near Pembroke Park around 9 a.m. last Friday. Until now, the identity of the other crew member is unknown
    Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, the face of the conservative cable network, decimated President Donald Trump’s Thursday night renomination acceptance speech both for its delivery and for holding the Republican National Convention at the White House while taking no protections against the coronavirus. Glossing over that the RNC and Trump campaign had “Trump 2020” spelled out in fireworks over the National Mall, Wallace said, “there certainly were impressive fireworks on the mall but I have to say I was surprised at the lack of fireworks in the President’s speech tonight.” “First of all, it was far too long. 70 minutes exactly,” he lamented. “And I thought at times it felt more like a State of the Union speech, like a campaign speech. The President went through all of his accomplishments during his first term and there are a great number and they are considerable, and then, as you say, he...
    Lili Reinhart, More Stars Reveal Quarantine Weight Gain A troubling tale of a Black man trying to refinance his mortgage Why Danica Patrick doesnt see the lack of women in the 2020 Indy 500 as a step backward For the last 20 years, at least one woman has competed in the Indianapolis 500. Whether it was Lyn St. James, Danica Patrick or Pippa Mann, one of the biggest motor sports events in the world always had a woman competing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. © Provided by For The Win But that streak ends Sunday with the 104th Indy 500 when, for the first time since the 1999 race, the field will consist entirely of men. “The fact that it’s a story that there isn’t one is more surprising,” Patrick said Wednesday during a media teleconference previewing NBC’s race coverage. “Because the story always used to be that there is...

    VIDEO2:2102:21'We have to make some hard decisions': Gloria Estefan on the business impact of coronavirusThe CNBC Conversation Global Latin pop legend and entrepreneur Gloria Estefan has told CNBC she is facing some hard business decisions in her home state of Florida, as it continues to battle the coronavirus crisis.  The international music icon also said the U.S. had suffered from a "a serious lack of leadership" in its handling of the pandemic so far.  Seven-time Grammy award winner Estefan was speaking after the release of her new album, "Brazil305," which celebrates her life-long love of Brazilian music and features new songs and re-recorded samba versions of some of her classic hits.  The album — her first in seven years — had been set for release in 2017 but was delayed after her mother passed away, and then most recently by the global crisis and the worldwide response to the death...
    White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on Sunday defended President Donald Trump’s continued push to delegitimize mail-in voting, brushing off CNN anchor Jake Tapper’s insistence that there’s no evidence of “widespread voter fraud” by retorting that “there’s no evidence that there’s not, either.” In a wild and combative State of the Union interview that spanned nearly 30 minutes, Tapper repeatedly pressed the top aide on the president’s admission last week that he is blocking aid to the United States Postal Service in order to impede mail-in voting this fall. “They need that money in order to have the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots,” Trump said in a Thursday interview with Fox Business. “If they don’t get those two items, that means you can’t have universal mail-in voting because they’re not equipped to have it.” Meadows, for his part, denied...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Morningside Park is just east of Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood. A fish kill in Biscayne Bay has area residents holding their noses as they wonder what the heck is going on. The problem, it seems, is that there is little to no oxygen in the water and the fish are dying. On Friday, several of the dead fish were left steps away from Miami City Hall. “What’s coming next? Climate hell? Climate catastrophe?” said Nicholas Vazquez, who along with Solange Jativa, put the fish there to get the attention of local leaders. “We are going to bring the fish to you then so you can see what it looks like” said Jativa who wants something done. “I live on Biscayne Boulevard. I smell this. I see this. I kayak in the water. We swim in the water. We go boating.” ...
    A region in Spain has introduced a ban on smoking in outdoor public places when social distancing cannot be guaranteed.   The ban came into effect Thursday in Spain's northwestern region of Galicia, with other areas mulling similar restrictions to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Under a law approved by the regional government of Galicia late on Wednesday which came into force at midnight, removing a face mask to smoke in public is not allowed if it is not possible to maintain a distance of two meters (6.7 feet) between people. The move is supported by research from Spain's health ministry, who last month found that smoking can spread the virus because people project droplets when they exhale smoke.  In addition, the virus could be spread when a person removes their face mask to smoke a cigarette, and by touching their cigarette before bringing it to their mouth.   A...

    Amid the coronavirus pandemic in America, multiple police chiefs and sheriffs in Arkansas and elsewhere say they won’t enforce statewide mask requirements, even within their departments. Some say they don’t have the manpower to respond to every mask complaint, treating violations of the requirement as they would oft-ignored minor offenses such as jaywalking. Others, including Lang Holland, the chief of police in tiny Marshall, Arkansas, reject the legal validity of requirements. Holland told The Associated Press he thought the threat of the coronavirus has been overstated and would wear a face mask only if he’s inside a business that requires it. He doesn’t make his officers wear masks either. So, the day after Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed an order requiring masks to be worn in public throughout Arkansas, Holland made it clear his department wasn’t going to enforce the mandate in the Ozarks town of about 1,300, calling it an...

    Madrid, Jul 13 (EFE) .- The mobilizations of Airbus workers against the 1,600 layoffs announced in Spain -722 in defense and 900 in commercial, according to the company- started this Tuesday with assemblies and concentrations in its eight factories: Getafe and Barajas (Madrid), Illescas (Toledo), Albacete, Seville and Cádiz. The aeronautical restructuring plan foresees the abolition of 17,600 jobs worldwide until 2021, of them 2,600 in defense and 15,000 in commercial. According to Efe, the sector manager for Transport Equipment, Electronics and ICT at UGT FICA, Juan Antonio Vázquez, there is “great concern” also about the impact that Airbus plans may have on the auxiliary supply industry, where he calculates that between 15,000 and 20,000 jobs could be lost, as a consequence of the closings due to lack of liquidity and profitability. Convinced that the situation is reversible with an industrial plan based on an increase in state investments, after...
    The United States played fast and loose with the health of essential workers during the first months of the coronavirus pandemic, and the push to reopen businesses despite surging COVID-19 infections is no different. Essential workers and advocacy groups that represent them are calling for stronger health and safety protections, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Ro Khanna have called for an Essential Workers Bill of Rights, and some local governments have increased protections, but businesses—backed, of course, by the Trump administration—are pushing back, even as workers are “on the frontlines like sacrificial lambs,” call center worker Hope Gilmore told NBC News. “Employers are tending to take the position that they're complying with OSHA guidelines, but it's extremely clear that OSHA guidelines are not protecting workers and are toothless," Rebecca Kolins Givan, an associate professor at Rutgers University's School of Management and Labor Relations, said. "The entire reason for having government regulation...
    Facebook is considering a blackout on political ads on its site in the days leading up the U.S. election in November, it was reported Friday.  According to Bloomberg, the social media giant is discussing a ban on political ads after weeks of criticism for not fact-checking ads from politicians or their campaigns. Anger over the company's inactive stand on hate speech on its platform has resulted in a boycott from more than a thousand of its advertisers.  Civil rights groups have also called Facebook's response 'disappointing'.   Facebook may introduce a ban on political ads in the days before the 2020 election The political ad blackout is still only being discussed and no action has been finalized, Bloomberg adds.  Blackouts on political advertising within days of an election are common in other parts of the world such as the United Kingdom.  The ban is seen as important to those who...
    Breaking News — Santiago de Chile, Jul 6 . .- In areas of northern Chile with a high altitude above sea level, some infected with COVID-19 are experiencing complications from the so-called “silent hypoxia”, the lack of oxygen in the blood that does not cause apparent symptoms. Due to the lower concentration of oxygen in the air and the high atmospheric pressure, those infected with coronaviruses in cities like the northern Calama, about 2,300 meters above sea level, would suffer differently from “hypoxia”, that is, the lack of oxygen in tissues, the Chilean Health Minister said Monday. Not presenting the classic symptoms, such as the feeling of suffocation or chest pain, patients are not aware of their severe lung injury and once diagnosed require mechanical ventilation “immediately”. Also called “silent pneumonia,” this condition has surprised doctors around the world during the pandemic, as although it is directly related to...
    There's been an uptick in shootings in New York City this summer. Reuters Shootings in New York City claimed the lives of at least 11 people over the weekend, police say.  The weekend follows an especially violent June: 250 people were shot in the first 28 days of the month, according to NYPD stats.  On Monday morning, Mayor Bill De Blasio attributed the spike in violence to what might be the "single worst combination of crises New York City has ever faced," including the court closure and coronavirus.  Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer attributed the spike in violence to the coronavirus shutdown and the recession it's caused. NYPD Chief of Department Terry Monahan said bail reform, anti-police rhetoric, and the release of prisoners from Rikers Island play a role. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Lillard will enter into a superlative contract with the Trail Blazers for the 2021-22 season | Alika Jenner / . The Portland Trail Blazers’ announcement of the contract extension to Damian Lillard caused a stir in mid-2019, as this deal will make the star base one of the highest paid in history. However, many speculate that before ending that agreement, Lillard may ask for a change, this in order to be able to fight for a title, since Portland has fallen short in that objective.

    ELK GROVE (CBS13) — Summer is going by faster than normal and school is just a couple short months away. School districts in our area are beginning to make plans for what learning will look like for students. In just about a month and a half from now, Florence Markofer Elementary School would normally be bustling with students and teachers, but with coronavirus on the rise once again, there are a lot of questions about what school in Elk Grove will even look like.

    Coronavirus — In one of the strongest pronouncements so far on the health crisis on the part of the country’s Catholic Church, the Archdiocese of Managua protested against the persecution of medical personnel by the Ortega regime, as well as the abandonment of the population before the “great tragedy »of the pandemic of the new Covid-19 coronavirus in Nicaragua. «At this time, as a Church we feel and live with our people this great tragedy: dozens of coffins circulating in our cities, the express burials in the middle of the night, the sirens of ambulances that break the silence at all times, the pain of not being able to pay our love tribute to loved ones who have left us without saying goodbye. This is how the Archdiocese Justice and Peace Commission explained the seriousness of what is happening in the country due to the pandemic. Since officially announcing...
    The coronavirus continued to wreak havoc on the advertising market in May, new data shows. Last month, US advertising revenue plummeted 31 percent with the postponement of big-ticket sporting events dragging down big media companies like Disney, owner of ESPN, according to a new report from StandardMedia Tracker, which tracks media spend. According to the data, media giants Disney and WarnerMedia logged some of the steepest ad declines last month due to a delay in the NBA playoffs, which typically take place in May and is broadcast by Disney’s ABC and ESPN and WarnerMedia’s TNT.  The lack of the playoffs caused WarnerMedia ad revenue to fall by 45.5 percent during the month while Disney saw its ad sales dip by 39.6 percent, the data said. The coronavirus-embattled travel industry slashed its ad spend by a whopping 87 percent, the most in any category, the report said. Automotive ad spend...

    Only three days after his Tulsa rally, President Donald Trump held another MAGA event in a megachurch in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday, June 23 — and much to the dismay of health experts, most of the attendees were not wearing masks. One of those experts is Dr. Sanjay Gupta, chief medical correspondent for CNN. During a June 24 appearance on CNN’s “New Day,” Gupta was vehemently critical of the president for encouraging a lack of social distancing at a time when the number of new coronavirus infections is on the rise in so many states in the U.S. — including Arizona. Gupta told “New Day” hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman, “It’s like a bunch of people being outside in the middle of a hurricane…. We’re being really, really silly. We’re being ridiculous at this point.” Gupta said of Trump’s Phoenix rally, “That’s the worst case scenario, having a large...

    LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — The family of a Louisiana man who was stabbed over the weekend is calling the assault a hate crime, but police said the evidence doesn't support that. Holden White, 18, was stabbed in the neck and wrists and was in critical condition Monday, Lafayette police spokesperson Sgt. Wayne Griffin told news outlets. Authorities arrested Chance Seneca, 19, Saturday and charged him with attempted second-degree murder. White's family told news outlets that White met Seneca through Grindr, a dating app for gay, bisexual and transexual men. The family said it believes the stabbing was a hate crime targeting White because he was gay and questions authorities’ reasoning for not classifying it as one. Griffin said the stabbing won't be classified as a hate crime because nothing in the case has pointed in that direction. Authorities who responded to a call about 11:45 p.m. Saturday found White suffering...
    Coronavirus — OKDIARIO has moved to Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez airport on the first business day since the state of alarm was lifted this June 21. The Government announced last week that three controls would be established at airports that tourists will have to pass to access the country and thus monitor a possible outbreak of coronavirus. However, many of the citizens who have been arriving at Terminal 4 this Monday, have told us that these controls are not being carried out “rigorously or effectively”. The first of the controls is a basic information form and location that passengers must fill on board the plane so that the Government can locate them at any time, know where they will be during their stay and check if they have been in contact with any patient in recent weeks. However, several tourists have remarked to OKDIARIO that they have had difficulties in...
    "Married at First Sight" star Jamie Otis is sharing her thoughts on the questions surrounding why the television show's U.S. version lacks same-sex couples in an interview with Fox News. The hit Lifetime series is perhaps one of the most unconventional dating shows of them all, as cast members agree to get legally married upon meeting for the first time. They are then given a number of weeks to figure out whether or not they want to pull the plug or stay together. Back in 2014, Otis tied the knot to her now-husband of six years, Doug Hehner. The series, which also has an Australian version, reportedly introduced its first same-sex couple in 2016 but fans have long questioned why there hasn't been a more varied cast of couples in terms of sexual orientation.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s the 155th anniversary of Juneteenth — but some are just now learning about it. Education experts say there’s a reason why. “If you have an educator that knows history and really understands what occurred during the civil war period you probably did learn about Juneteenth, but it doesn’t mean that your textbook taught you,” said Dr. Kathlene Campbell, Dean of University of St. Thomas’ School of Education “It’s actually one of the saddest things about education is that histories of people who were marginalized and the histories of people of color they’re not required in the standards,” said Nuhu Sims, the coordinator of equity at the Brooklyn Center School district and a PHD candidate at the University of Minnesota. “It really is educators filling in the gaps that our textbooks have because they’ve omitted stories,” Campbell said. Minnesota teachers aren’t required to teach specifically about Juneteenth,...
    In a situation like the current one, where we do not have any precedent that can give us clues on how to combat the crisis that is coming, many economists try to estimate how high the deterioration of an economy that, like the Spanish one, is facing one of the biggest challenges in its history. Estimates could only base their example on past crises that, relative to their historic context, are not valid for the contrast with the current crisis. Furthermore, as reflected in the different analyzes, we are talking about a situation in which we must compute the greater deterioration experienced by the Spanish economy compared to other counterparts in the world. Especially worrying is the blow suffered by the tourism sectorGiven the nature of the crisis, it is being the most affected of the list of sectors that make up our economy. We cannot get carried away by...
    Hey Matthew, this is an early version of this feature and we’re exploring ways to make these types of Tweets accessible to everyone. — Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) June 17, 2020 “This is an early version of this feature and we’re exploring ways to make these types of Tweets accessible to everyone,” Twitter responded from its official support account.  But if Twitter’s initial statement was meant to to smooth things over, it had the opposite of its intended effect. Instead, the response came off as tone deaf, with critics saying it made it seem as though accessibility is an afterthought for Twitter. “The Americans With Disabilities Act was signed into law 30 years ago,” Cortland wrote. “Federal law requires accessibility from the start. You don’t, as a matter of civil rights law, get to roll out an inaccessible feature and then, only later, make it accessible.” Criticism...
    (CNN)The preliminary results of a National Guard investigation found a lack of clarity in orders played a significant role in a medical evacuation helicopter flying at extremely low altitude over protesters in the nation's capital earlier this month, according to two defense officials.The Washington, DC, National Guard's fact-finding probe into why a National Guard UH-72 medical helicopter flew just above protesters on the streets of Washington on June 1 has wrapped, the officials told CNN.

Walker, who can accept or reject any recommendations or order further action such as administrative punishment, including letters of reprimand, the officials said. The results could be made public later this week. However, if Walker proceeds with administrative punishment those involved would have 10 days to respond, which would push the public release into next week.The report goes...
    The European Union’s top official acknowledged a lack of racial and ethnic diversity within the bloc’s institutions as she pledged Wednesday to keep talking about racism and discrimination. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said during a discussion at the European Parliament about racism and police violence that she wants to “get to the bottom of these questions.” “Let us look around us, here in this very hemicycle,” von der Leyen said in a speech delivered at the horseshoe-shaped EU legislature. “The diversity of our society is not represented. And I will be the first to admit, things are not better in the College of Commissioners, nor among the European Commission staff.” The College of Commissioners, which oversees EU policies, is made of 27 members, one from each EU country. All the members of the team set up by von der Leyen are white. “This is why I...
    On Sunday, Fox News’ Howard Kurtz and Chris Wallace engaged in a discussion about journalistic integrity. “Is journalism becoming more intolerant?” Kurtz asked. “I mean, ten or twenty years ago, would we have seen the publisher of The New York Times completely flipping and criticizing a conservative op-ed that he had defended because a bunch of newsroom staffers didn’t like it?” Wallace replied: It feels like the inmates are running the asylum. You know, I’ve been critical sometimes of the Times, and I think that their liberal tendency tends to bleed out onto their news coverage – some people have accused Fox of the same thing in terms of our tendencies – but I thought that what happened in the last week at the Times was just extraordinary. Wallace then explained that Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) had written an op-ed in which he advocated using the military to end the...
