    DENVER (CBS4) – It’s been more than three months since Denver School Board Director Tay Anderson was accused of sexual misconduct. Now the Greater Denver Ministerial Alliance is asking how much longer this issue has to go on. “I am urging those making any such accusation to come forward or to leave it alone,” said Patrick Demmer, Superintendent of the Greater Denver Ministerial Alliance.

It stated a woman came forward accusing the school board director of a sexual assault that happened several years ago. Since then there has been no police case acknowledged and no accuser has come forward. Members of the  Ministerial Alliance say Anderson has become a victim. “This young man’s life has been disrupted to the point where his emotional and mental stability has been compromised,” Pastor Topazz McBride said. In May, DPS parent Mary Brooks Fleming testified to a state legislative committee that 62 alleged victims had...
    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher questioned whether it’s “really liberal for someone who doesn’t go to college and makes less money to pay for people who do go and make more?” And said that “Liberals see more school the way Republicans see tax cuts, as the answer to everything.” Maher began by saying that higher education in the U.S. is “a racket that sells you a very expensive ticket to the upper-middle class.” He added, “Now, the right is calling Biden’s plan social engineering, which is over the top. But Biden’s plan is an endorsement of a particular idea, that the more time humans spend in classrooms staring at blackboards, the better. Liberals see more school the way Republicans see tax cuts, as the answer to everything. We imagine going to college is the way to fight income inequality. But actually, it does the reverse.” Maher further stated, “I know free college is a left-wing thing, but is it really liberal for someone who doesn’t go to college and makes less money to pay for...

It’s really just easier if we throw it out.'” Cohen said.

    New York (CNN Business)Kamala Harris isn't the only Black woman making history in 2021.The January 20 swearing-in of the nation's first woman, Black and southeast Asian vice president came at a pivotal moment for Black women in the business world, which up until recently has failed miserably to increase the number of Black executives — male and female — in its ranks.In 2018, only 3.3% of all US corporate executive and senior leadership positions were filled by Black people. Not much has changed since then, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.To date, there have been only 19 Black CEOs — 17 men and two women — in the entire history of the list, which was first published in Fortune magazine in 1955. Incoming Walgreen's CEO Rosalind Brewer will be added on March 15, when she becomes just the third Black woman to serve as a Fortune 500 CEO.But experts say there currently aren't enough Black women in the c-suite pipeline at most major companies to narrow the gap between Black and White women, who are also underrepresented in executive...
    Senator Ted Cruz has come to the defense of conservative actress Gina Carano, after Disney fired her from the cast of The Mandalorian over her controversial social media posts. 'Texan Gina Carano broke barriers in the Star Wars universe: not a princess, not a victim, not some emotionally tortured Jedi,' Cruz tweeted on Thursday.  'She played a woman who kicked a** & who girls looked up to. She was instrumental in making Star Wars fun again. Of course Disney canceled her.' It came as Disney announced on Thursday that its young streaming service had hit a record 94.9 million subscribers, exceeding expectations -- but now the company faces growing calls for a boycott over Carano's firing.

    New York : Sanders only agrees that no stimulus checks should be given to people who make $ 300,000 a year. Photo: MICHAEL REYNOLDS / EFE Sen. Bernie Sanders said Sunday that he opposes lowering the income threshold to be eligible for $ 1,400 economic stimulus checks. in the next coronavirus relief package. And it is that the most conservative member of the Democrats, Senator Joe Manchin, has expressed concern that stimulus checks could be sent to too many people who have high incomes, and who also did not lose their jobs during the pandemic. Because of this, it is said that some Democrats could propose phasing out the amount of the stimulus check to people making $ 50,000 or more, instead of $ 75,000, as happened with the first two stimulus checks. President Joe Biden has said he is open to negotiation to decide which people should receive the stimulus checks, which, under the current proposal, would go entirely to individuals who file taxes individually and earn up to $ 75,000 and couples filing...
    SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Hundreds of seniors lined up in the rain Thursday morning to secure their spot at Santa Clara County's first COVID-19 walk-up vaccination site. The scene at the Mexican Heritage Plaza in East San Jose, an area hit hardest by the pandemic, illustrated the high demand for the vaccine."My mom's 92 and she's got diabetes, and she lives in a multi-family home, so these are really important factors," said Elizabeth Robledo, who brought her parents to the plaza. "I just called them last night and they said, 'yeah, let's go!'"VACCINE TRACKER: How California is doing, when you can get a coronavirus vaccineThe vaccine clinic, which is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays, is operated by Gardner Health Services in partnership with the county.

    SACRAMENTO (CBS SF) — State health officials say California wants to make COVID-19 vaccines available to everyone age 65 and older, to help speed up its distribution. As of Monday, 816,673 coronavirus vaccine doses have been administered to health care workers and nursing home staff and residents, according to state officials. While the state is rolling out vaccine doses in phases, targeting the most at-risk demographics first, new guidance Tuesday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encouraged states to begin vaccinating everyone age 65 and up — rather than segmenting them depending on whether they have underlying medical conditions. “We believe that having more vaccines, inviting more to be vaccinated will allow California to go faster and quicker through our population and get that vaccine out of our freezers and into our populations to get that protection,” HHS Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly. Roughly 15% of the state’s population is older than 65, according to 2019 population estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau. Ghaly noted that the state’s vaccination rollout has been somewhat tempered so far due to...
    New York state expanded COVID-19 vaccine distribution Tuesday to people 65 and over, increasing access to an already short supply of doses being distributed through an overtaxed system some users have found time consuming. The state had already dramatically expanded vaccine eligibility beyond health care workers on Monday to include people 75 and older and to police officers, teachers and other key professions. Cuomo announced the lower age eligibility Tuesday, even as a state vaccine hotline was temporarily not accepting calls due to high call volumes. People were making inoculation appointments though a state website, which generates a list of nearby potential sites users can contact. Geneva Conway, an 88-year-old Albany resident, said she was still waiting for a vaccination appointment after using the website and making a round of calls to local pharmacies, the county and her doctor.
    The holidays can be a hard time for some in the best of circumstances. Add to that the coronavirus pandemic, and you have more people than ever struggling to get through the winter season. To help its users help each other, Facebook is adding a new Drives feature to the Community Help section that makes it easier for you and your friends to collect food, clothes and other vital goods for those in need. An icon near the top of the main Community Help page allows you to request or offer help. Once a drive is created, you can contribute to it through tapping another easy-to-find icon. Like a crowdfunding campaign, there’s a progress bar at the top that tells you how close the Drive is to accomplishing its goal. Facebook also gives you the option to contact the person who created the drive through Messenger. The company is currently in the process of rolling out the feature to select users in the US, promising it will be more widely available across the country in the coming weeks.
    The highest earners in the states of New York, New Jersey and California could end up paying 62% in state and federal under Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's tax plan in what would be the highest tax rate implemented in more than 30 years. The high rate would affect those earning more than $400,000 whilst those earning below that level would likely receive tax cuts. Nonetheless, the rate would still see a double-digit increase on current tax rates.  Under Joe Biden's tax plan taxpayers in California, New Jersey and New York who earn more than $400k a year could face combined state and local income tax rates of more than 60% In California, the state and federal tax rate could rise to 62.6% according to calculations by the Tax Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank that collects data and publishes research studies on tax policies in the US. On the east coast, in New Jersey, the combined rates would also likely be above 60% and about 58.2% in New York City where most of the state's highest earners reside. ...
    Today is Columbus Day in those states that still celebrate the federal holiday on the second Monday of October. Colorado is no longer one of them, even though this was the first state to officially observe Columbus Day, making it a holiday in 1907. After several earlier attempts, Colorado lawmakers finally voted to abolish Columbus Day early in the 2020 session, and on March 20, Governor Jared Polis signed a law officially abolishing the holiday in this state. Instead, on October 5, the first Monday of the month, Colorado observed the first Frances Xavier Cabrini Day, honoring Mother Cabrini, the Italian immigrant whose good deeds cannot be disputed. For years, Denver was the site of protests over Columbus Day, with organizers arguing that the explorer was no one to honor. Glenn Morris, currently director of the University of Colorado Denver's 4th World Center for the Study of Indigenous Law and Politics, was active in those demonstrations, and sums up the objections with this: “First, it is a holiday that celebrates Columbus, who was an African slave trader and who then...
    HAMPTON TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — With masks being mandated by Governor Tom Wolf, facial expressions can be lost and some people who are hard at hearing aren’t able to read lips. Several companies are making masks with clear material around mouths so people can see each other’s faces. This includes one in our area. Rose Morris with Abram’s Nation has been making masks since early in the pandemic. “Just happy to help,” she said while sewing a mask. Within the last few weeks, clients asked if her Hampton Township company could make ones with clear material around the mouth. “Sometimes I call it the see my smile mask,” Morris said with a smile that could be seen through her mask. Many of the people Morris works with help people with special needs…including hearing impairments, and others who couldn’t recognize a trusted adult with a mask over their face. “When you’re not in that world, you don’t realize what somebody else needs. Once your eyes are open to it, then you realize there is a much larger community than what you think,”...
    Bear populations have been growing all across North America, bringing them in closer and more regular contact with humans each year.  That trend is putting bears at far greater risk than humans, according to a new study from the University of Alberta, led by Clayton Lamb. Lamb and his colleagues tracked 2,669 grizzly bears across British Columbia between 1979 and 2019 and found that the mortality rate for bears who lived near humans was 7.5 times higher than it was for those that lived in the wild. A new study found that bears that lived close to towns and cities had mortality rates that were 7.5 times higher than those that lived further into the wild According to the team, only one in 30 grizzly bears that lived in regions with frequent human contact would live to be 14-years-old, roughly middle aged for bears. In wild areas with less frequent human contact, 26 out of every 30 bears made it to 14 years-old, according to a report in Inverse. RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next ...
