    The Homestead camp under the previous administration in 2019. The Biden administration will allow officials to bypass policy that required relatives and other sponsors to have to pay for the flights of unaccompanied asylum-seeking children in U.S. custody, the Associated Press (AP) reports. Government policy has typically required sponsors to have to pay for the transportation costs of children they’ve agreed to care for. But with costs ranging from the mid-hundreds to as high as $1,000 per child, costs have cruelly prolonged the harmful detention of children. The AP reports the administration is now allowing Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) facilities to bypass this policy and assist some sponsors with fees as needed (though it’s unclear how many). The change is part of an effort by the Biden administration to expedite the release of children from facilities that have been forced to limit space due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.  To assist with travel...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper confronted CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky Sunday on when exactly schools can reopen across the country. The CDC recently released new guidelines on how schools can be reopened, which emphasized the need for continued mitigation and contact tracing if it can be done safely. Tapper directly asked Walensky, “Should all students be back in classrooms before the end of this school year?” She said that they want to advocate for having more kids in school “as our community spread comes down.” Tapper questioned why they don’t just open schools right now, asking, “Can you point to any scientific reasons for students in the United States not to return to in-person classes tomorrow as long as schools are taking the five steps that we referred to earlier — masking, cleansing, etc.?” Walensky responded they don’t want to risk bringing community disease in the classroom, noting the high rate of...
    Heineken announced Wednesday the company will be cutting thousands of jobs due to the pandemic and plans to “move beyond beer.” “The impact of the pandemic on our business was amplified by our on-trade [pubs, bars and restaurants] and geographic exposure,” CEO Dolf van den Brink shared in an earnings statement.

    After years of struggling to crack down on vaccine misinformation, Facebook is once again revising its policies to get tougher.On Monday, the company announced several ways it plans to better combat vaccine misinformation, including making it harder to find accounts through searches on Facebook-owned Instagram that discourage people from getting vaccinated.The announcement comes a day after CNN Business reported that Instagram continued to prominently feature anti-vaxxer accounts in its search results, while Facebook groups railing against vaccines remained easy to find. The findings raised concerns among public health experts, given the United States is in the midst of its largest vaccine rollout ever to address the coronavirus pandemic.Facebook said Monday that it's "expanding" its efforts to remove false claims on its namesake platform and Instagram about the coronavirus, COVID-19 vaccines and vaccines in general during the pandemic.The company also announced it will start showing links in its "COVID-19 Information Center"...
    Loading the player... The Biden administration said on Friday it’s taking “creative steps” to get broader public support for its $1.9 trillion COVID-19 rescue plan, as attempts to strike a deal with Republicans have led to concerns about delays in coronavirus relief and Senate Democrats prepared to pass the measure along party lines. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said President Joe Biden fully recognizes the importance of speaking directly to the American people about his plan for vaccinations and supporting the economy, but the pandemic has limited his ability to safely travel the country to drum up support. That has left the administration relying on TV interviews with local media and outreach to governors and local officials as well as to progressive and civic groups.

    (CBS4) – Douglas County law officers and Safeway stores have unveiled a new way to fight gift card fraud. Signs are now going up at the racks where gift cards are sold. The message they want to get out is gift cards are for gifts — and that businesses and government agencies do not take them for payment. (credit: CBS) Store employees have also been trained to help recognize when customers may about to become victims. David Montoya from Safeway Asset Protection said one scenario of concern is when there is someone on the phone with a customer as they are buying the gift card. “We’ve had situations where our employee will ask ‘May I ask who is on the phone with you?’ and the customer will say ‘Well, they told me not to tell you,’ or ‘They’ve told me not to talk to you but I need to buy...

    DENVER (CBS4) — A male orangutan has taken on an usual role at the Denver Zoo, after the death of the family’s matriarch last month. Nias, a Sumatran orangutan, died unexpectedly on Dec. 17 at age 32. Nias had two daughters — Hesty, who is 10, and Cerah, who is just two years old. On Tuesday, zoo officials said Cerah’s father, Berani, had “stepped up to the plate” and was taking care of the youngster. (credit: Denver Zoo) “In the wild, orangutan males are not involved with their offspring. To see Berani step up as Mr. Mom, is an extremely rare situation—and Cerah couldn’t have asked for a better dad,” officials said. “Berani is so attentive and protective of her, seeing to all her needs. He will carry her, comfort her, and even snuggles her when she sleeps,” they said. Berani even seems to tolerate Cerah nibbling on his...
    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — John Fetterman, Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor, is taking definitive steps toward running for the state’s open U.S. Senate seat in 2022, likely bringing his outsized personality and frame back to a busy campaign trail. Fetterman said Friday that he is exploring a run for U.S. Senate. Previously, Fetterman had said that he was looking at running for either governor or U.S. Senate in 2022. But Fetterman, 51, told The Associated Press that he is no longer interested in running for governor, an office that his fellow Democrat, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, is widely expected to seek. Instead, Fetterman has begun asking for donations to a campaign account he set for a U.S. Senate run and said he will have a final decision in the coming weeks. Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate seat could be one of the nation’s most hotly contested in 2022, and a chance for Democrats to...

    (CNN)The Trump administration will soon take steps toward designating Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism as an 11th hour effort to create hurdles for the incoming Biden administration, which is likely to pursue warmer ties with Havana.A senior administration official told CNN that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is expected to make the designation in the coming days. A second official confirmed that discussions are taking place, although the timing is uncertain.

    Sean Hannity devoted part of his opening monologue Friday to discussing the sworn allegations of election fraud from ordinary Americans across the country.  The "Hannity" host claimed that the affidavits, "along with surveillance videos in two states ...now casts what is real significant doubts on the integrity of the 2020 election.  "Brave Americans now coming forward publicly, many of them as you know under the penalty of perjury, they deserve to be heard," he added. Hannity also noted embattled Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp's call Thursday night for Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger begin an audit of signatures on mail-in ballots. KEMP CLAIMS SECRETARY OF STATE RAFFENSPERGER HAS YET TO ORDER SIGNATURE AUDIT "Brian Kemp may have actually, finally taken a baby step in the right direction," Hannity said, "while he still has steadfastly refused to call a special legislative session to fix the problems with the two-tiered signature verification system." Critics say GOP-controlled legislatures in Georgia and Pennsylvania have been prevented...
    PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — In a time when the world is looking for change, one teen took it upon himself to create his own. As CBS2’s Steve Overmyer reports, he did it by using his time at home during the lockdown to set up a business that’s making a difference. Thirteen-year-old Isaac Graubard started the eco-friendly business North Shore Refills during the pandemic to try to make a difference. (Credit: CBS2) It’s a small, eco-friendly business only a month old and created by a 13-year-old named Isaac Graubard. “During COVID, Isaac was home a lot and he noticed a lot of plastic bottles in our recycling bin. I think that triggered him to think how he can reduce his carbon footprint, our carbon footprint and help the world,” Isaac’s father, Jordan Graubard, told Overmyer. “It just was so sickening to see all those plastic bottles turn up pile after...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Next week, we will be raising money to help families of children who need medical care. Our Ronald McDonald House Charities Virtual Telethon will air on Nov. 24 on CBS3. Ronald McDonald Houses offer a warm, comfortable place for families to stay together while they care for a sick or injured child. In March, we met Yoldy, a teenager who celebrated her 17th birthday at the North Philadelphia house. She celebrated another major milestone of her life there, too. Yoldy is one step closer to her dream — to dance like the other teenage girls do in her village in Haiti. With the help of a walker, Yoldy recently took the first steps of her life at the Ronald McDonald House in North Philadelphia. Making this even more of a special accomplishment, Yoldy was raised in an orphanage in Haiti. As a child with special needs, her...
    New limits in Mich., Wash. as US passes 11M cases The Crown season four features Margaret Thatcher and Princess Diana. Heres what you should know about them Ravens lose to Patriots and are taking steps backward, especially in Greg Romans offense The sports fairy tale, made popular by Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls, is that a team takes its lumps in the playoffs and then fights its way over the hill and to a championship. That’s nice in theory but it doesn’t always happen. Especially in the NFL. Two seasons ago the Baltimore Ravens got to the playoffs with then-rookie Lamar Jackson and lost in the wild-card round. Last season they went 14-2 and were stunned by the Tennessee Titans in their playoff opener. The Ravens had a lot coming back, added a few more key pieces, and it looked like this could be their year. Instead,...
    Reuters October 6, 2020 0 Comments When Jill Biden noticed her husband standing too close to journalists for her comfort while taking questions on Monday, she walked up and pulled the 77-year-old U.S. presidential candidate back. People surrounding Democratic nominee Joe Biden are taking heightened measures to protect the self-described “tactile politician” from a pandemic that has reached the White House, infecting President Donald Trump himself. The Biden campaign – spooked by Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis just days after debating the former vice president face-to-face last week but unwilling to sideline him so close to the Nov. 3 election – said their candidate would be tested for the virus several times a week compared to just once per week before. Biden also has started keeping his mask on throughout his remarks on the campaign trail, even when standing alone at a podium. Both changes mark a new protocol for the...

    GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — City officials in the North Carolina city of Greensboro say they plan to spend more time studying police interactions with the public and to regularly release information on police officers' job performance. The News & Record reported Sunday that a memo from the city's manager to council members outlines steps to better evaluate interactions between police and the public. A member of a citizens review board will regularly review at random nine police interactions with citizens. The city will also open an online portal for people to give impressions of police actions without having to file a formal complaint. The city will also offer an online “dashboard” of data about police encounters with residents, ranging from traffic stops to use of force. The information will be linked to a mapping system to show where these incidents occur in the city. “These are some really good changes...
    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has spent the offseason doing more than just preparing for the season ahead. Jackson spoke to reporters Wednesday for the first time since he made offensive comments in early July regarding anti-Semitism, which included promoting quotes attributed to Adolf Hitler and praising noted anti-Semitic preacher Louis Farrakhan. EAGLES OWNER JEFFREY LURIE SAYS DESEAN JACKSON IS ‘DOING THE RIGHT THINGS’ SINCE OFFENSIVE COMMENTS REGARDING ANTI-SEMITISM “The aftermath of everything has been a long process,” he said. “I’ve been just using the time to educate myself and really just man up to the actions I took and just educate and learn from it.” Jackson apologized after facing a backlash earlier in the summer, even accepting an offer from New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman to go on a trip to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. “People make mistakes in life, and...
    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson says he’s been educating himself after facing backlash for sharing anti-Semitic posts on social media in July. “The aftermath of everything has been a long process,” Jackson said Wednesday, speaking to reporters for the first time since the incident. “I’ve been just using the time to educate myself and really just man up to the actions I took and just educate and learn from it.” Jackson initially posted a screenshot of a quote widely attributed to Adolf Hitler, saying in part: “Jews will blackmail America.” In another post, Jackson showed support for Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam leader who is known for anti-Semitic rhetoric. He apologized in a video on Instagram. “Over the past few months I kind of had to reflect on just life,” Jackson said four days before the Eagles visit the Washington Football Team. “People make mistakes...
    Some states could start to make the $400 expanded unemployment payments as early as this week after drawing down on federal funds made available through the executive orders President Donald Trump signed in early August, according to Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia.  "Seven states now that are approved, some of them have already received the money from the federal government and are taking the steps they need to begin dispersing funds," Scalia said on Fox Business "Mornings With Maria" Tuesday. "I think at least one state will begin making up those additional payments this week." The secretary did not comment on which states have received the funds. Under Trumps executive order, states are to provide $100 a week per unemployment recipient, with the federal government to kick in $300, making a total of $400 per person. The president passed the order and several others after Congress failed to pass its latest...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Miami Mayor Francis Suarez is taking steps to address the recent fish kill in Biscayne Bay. In a series of tweets on Saturday, Mayor Suarez posted his four-point plan to help the marine life. He wrote, “I’ve taken four emergency steps to address the fish kill in the bay. We are deploying emergency pumps to attempt to aerate the water. We worked with our partner organisations and departments to have compost receptacles so that volunteers can clean the bay of dead fish so it doesn’t contaminate other live marine life.

    Sen. Gary Peters, R-Mich., who is fighting to keep his seat from being flipped after President Donald Trump won his state in 2016, believes the Trump administration is taking steps to slow mail service after Michigan approved "no-reason absentee" ballots. "What were seeing from the postmaster general is that there are a number of procedures being put in place, presumably to save money, but the impact has been to slow down mail delivery," Peters told MSNBC on Tuesday. "Were hearing from folks in the Postal Service there arent overtime processing centers are shut down early, mail has just been left off to the side, and thats certainly not part of the Postal Service, which works hard every day to make sure the mail gets out every day." Peters said he believes there are two reasons, one being the Trump administration "does not like the Postal Service" and would like to privatize...

A recent Bankrate survey found that 55% of Americans have regrets over their emergency savings, or lack thereof. Experts agree that having an emergency fund can help you whether you face a job loss or other unexpected event.

On November 18th, 2018, the Washington Football Team faced the Houston Texans in D.C. Washington was doing quite well at that point of the season and a large part of their success was because of quarterback Alex Smith, who they had acquired that offseason from Kansas City. In that game against the Texans, however, Smith was taken down and didn’t get up after being taken to the ground. It turns out he had suffered a broken fibula and tibia on the play and not only was...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The City of Philadelphia is taking action as the thermometer climbs. Officials are taking a number of steps to help the most vulnerable during the heat health emergency.

    In an era when perception can be tantamount to success, second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham appears to be taking all the right steps to fill the gaping void left by six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady and become a leader in New England. With NFL facilities shuttered in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2019 fourth-rounder is spearheading social distancing-friendly workouts at a private football field with six of his Patriots teammates, according to ESPN. Attendees to these extracurricular throwing sessions have included journeyman quarterback Brian Hoyer — whom the Patriots re-signed this offseason — as well as wide receivers Julian Edelman, Damiere Byrd and Gunner Olszewski. After 20 years with Brady at the helm, the Patriots are currently faced with the unfamiliar challenge of finding a worthy heir. The 42-year-old icon departed New England in March to join the Buccaneers, leaving the fanbase shellshocked and the franchise sans an obvious...
    The death of George Floyd, his plea for help, for air, and for his mother will be etched in the consciousness of an entire generation of Americans. As the viral footage of George Floyd’s death surfaced, it seemed, for a brief moment in time, America’s indignation was united over the unjust death of another black man. Tragically, as anger boiled into action, our nation witnessed peaceful protests grow into violent riots that were hijacked by anarchists and have cost our nation more innocent lives, billions in damages, and wounds of divisions that will not be easily healed. BISHOP T.D.
