    The New York Times Why Idris Elba chose comedy to tell his most personal story “In the Long Run,” which has just finished its third season on Starz, is a comedy based on the childhood of actor Idris Elba in Holly Street Estate, a racially diverse public housing community in the London borough of Hackney. Set on the fictional Eastbridge Estate in the early 1980s, Elba, creator of the series for British network Sky One, plays Walter Easmon, who, like Elba’s real father Winston, migrated to England from the Sierra. Leona and worked in an American auto parts factory. However, this story of immigration and integration is not told exclusively from the perspective of Walter or his 13-year-old UK-born son, Kobna (Sammy Kamara), based on Elba. Instead, the show is a broad and upbeat portrait of a community, a story about interracial working-class Britons and West African immigrant families coexisting...

    A new survey indicates that 58 per cent of Americans are willing to get a coronavirus vaccine as soon as its made available.  But that number is down about 10 per cent from a poll asking the same question in mid-August. At that time, 69 per cent of American respondents had said that they would get the vaccine.     There are currently two major US clinical trials for coronavirus vaccines, which have started up again following concerns about safety. It's been said that an approved vaccine could be available as early as the end of November.  The survey, conducted in early October by STAT and The Harris Poll, showed that the drop in those willing to take a first-round vaccine was steeper among black Americans than white ones.     A new poll shows that 58 per cent of Americans would get a coronavirus vaccine once its available. A doctor is shown while...
    CAPE MAY COUNTY, N.J. (CBS) — It turns out the pandemic is lengthening the summer season down the shore, pushing it beyond Labor Day for some families. Labor Day is in the rear-view mirror but that doesn’t matter a bit based on the crowd on the beach in Wildwood Tuesday. Virtual learning and working from home has definitely extended the summer season — some people have booked places well into October. Class is well underway. Bobby and Guy Bollinger are on their Zooms, but the sixth and third graders from the Springfield, Delaware County School District are taking in life down the shore. Mom Lori Bollinger saw the chance to change things up. Since she works from home, and with her children in virtual programs, why not stay on vacation — sort of. “I said I’ve got to change it up. I’ve got to do something different. We’re going to...

The review which became a criminal investigation last fall has been derided by Democrats as simply a scheme to damage President Trump's Democrat rivals before November's election.   But Department of Justice spokeswoman Kerri Kupec, said that the report was not the 'goal' of the criminal investigation but that it will be 'pivotal to the restoration of that one tiered system of justice.'  'There is a story to be told there. The American people deserve resolution, and frankly, justice deserves resolution,' Kupec stated on behalf of Durham. Attorney General William Barr said last month that he believed there would be developments in Durham's investigation 'before the end of the...
    Attorney General William Barr said he expects there to be “developments” in U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the Russia investigation this summer even as he hinted it would continue through the November election. Barr, who appointed the Connecticut federal prosecutor last year after Trump gave the attorney general full declassification authority to look into the Trump-Russia saga, made the comments during an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures on Fox News, pointing to what he saw as the “collapse” of the Russian collusion narrative. “It’s been stunning that all we’ve gotten from the mainstream media is sort of bovine silence in the face of the complete collapse of the so-called Russiagate scandal, which they did all they could to sensationalize and drive, and it’s like not even a ‘whoops.’ They’re just on to the next false scandal,” Barr said. “In terms of the future of...
