    Montgomery County is pressing pause on plans to reopen some economic activity due to a recent uptick in Covid-19 cases — and officials suggested some business-related restrictions could return if the situation does not approve. The number of new daily cases per 100,000 residents in Maryland’s most-populous county moved up to 10 for the first time since early August, officials said at a media briefing Thursday. Covid-related hospitalizations are also up slightly, while the test positivity rate in the county moved to 3.2% after being below 3% last week. The county recorded 89 new cases on Thursday, moving its total above 24,000 — second-most of any jurisdiction in Greater Washington. “It’s incredibly concerning to us,” said Earl Stoddard, director of the county’s department of Emergency Management & Homeland Security. “We’re not at the point of alarming. We’re in phase two. We’re not moving back yet at this point...
    YouTube is cracking down on QAnon, "Pizzagate" and other conspiracy theory content on its platform that has been "used to justify real-world violence" against groups or individuals, the company announced Thursday.  The new policies, the company said, went into effect Thursday and will be continually updated due to the "evolving nature and shifting tactics of groups promoting these conspiracy theories." The company removed tens of thousands of QAnon videos and terminated hundreds of channels under its existing policies, it said, taking aim at those that explicitly threaten violence or deny the existence of major violent events. Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox The updated policy isn't a ban on QAnon but some content will be removed if it meets the criteria outlined in Thursday's blog post, according to YouTube.

    President Trump on Friday hit Joe Biden for getting off easy at his town hall the night before — when he wasn’t asked a single question about The Post’s bombshell exclusive on his son’s overseas business dealings. “Sleepy Joe Biden had a very bad showing last night, despite the fact that @GStephanopoulos didn’t ask him any questions on his being a ‘corrupt politician,’” Trump tweeted . “Big Tech & Lamestream Media are working hard to hide this corruption!!!” Biden made his first televised interview since The Post published a slew of emails from Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop — one of which indicating that the son arranged a meeting between his father and a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm. But The Post’s exposé didn’t come up once during the Democratic presidential candidate’s 90-minute ABC News town hall Thursday night. Major networks have also failed to mention the report,...

    VIDEO5:1805:18Zoom, Peloton get Street-high price targets. What traders see nextTrading Nation The stay-at-home trade is surging. Shares of Zoom and Peloton ended trading sharply higher on Thursday after both stocks received Street-high price targets. Bernstein upped its price target on Zoom to $611 a share on what it called a "huge runway" for the company with both businesses and consumers, while Bank of America Securities said Peloton could climb to $150 on strong demand for its products. Zoom closed over 5% higher at $536.40 on Thursday. Peloton ended trading up nearly 4% at $136.43. Both stocks hit new record highs in Thursday's session.

    By PATRICK WHITTLE, Associated Press PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins and her Democratic opponent Sara Gideon sparred on health care and the nation's coronavirus response during a Thursday debate that saw the two candidates heavily criticize each other's records in office. Collins, a 24-year senator, and Gideon, the speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, are in a heated, expensive race that could help determine control of the U.S. Senate. Both candidates were on the offensive Thursday, with Collins criticizing Gideon for the Maine Legislature's failure to meet since March and Gideon portraying Collins as beholden to Republican President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “The legislature has been out of session since March, and she has done nothing,” Collins said after touting her own work in support of the Paycheck Protection Program. Gideon responded that Maine has a lower rate of coronavirus cases...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A day after shutting off power for thousands of customers in Northern California customers, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. is holding a briefing on the Public Safety Power Shutoff.  In their nightly briefings, PG&E provides updates on the PSPS event, weather forecasts, and community resource centers. The utility initiated the power shutoff for approximately 53,000 customers Wednesday evening due to elevated fire danger in several counties. But due to mitigation issues, PG&E said around 9,000 customers were not de-energized. Changing forecasts also delayed de-energization for customers in Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Placer and Sierra counties until later Thursday. PG&E estimates approximately 4,000 customers in seven counties will lose power later Thursday afternoon. On top of the PSPS event for some PG&E customers, the California Independent System Operator (ISO) issued a Flex Alert Thursday from 3 p.m. to 10 pm., urging customers to conserve energy. The grid operator...

Detectives were investigating Thursday night.

    C-SPAN has suspended its political editor Steve Scully, who was supposed to moderate the second presidential debate that was originally scheduled for Thursday. When a tweet went out on Scully's account asking advice from former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, Scully claimed he was hacked after a backlash.  But Scully admitted Thursday the hacking claim was false, and he apologized for his actions in a statement. The debate was canceled after the Commission on Presidential Debate unilaterally decided it should be virtual, and Mr. Trump balked.  "For several weeks, I was subjected to relentless criticism on social media and in conservative news outlets regarding my role as moderator for the second presidential debate, including attacks aimed directly at my family," Scully said, referencing criticism for his onetime internship with former Vice President Joe Biden as a young man. "This culminated on Thursday, October 8th, when I heard President Trump...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs will be without offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele and wide receiver Sammy Watkins when they visit the Buffalo Bills on Monday night for a game that was pushed back because of COVID-19 protocols. Osmele tore tendons in both of his knees and Watkins hurt his hamstring during Sunday’s loss to the Raiders, which also ended the Chiefs’ franchise-record 13-game win streak. Mike Remmers finished the game at guard and will get the start in Buffalo, coach Andy Reid said Thursday, and Mecole Hardman will take most of the snaps in Watkins’s place. “I’m prepared,” Hardman said. “I did it last year when Tyreek (Hill) went down and Sammy went down one time, too. I’m prepared for the challenge. It’s nothing I can’t handle. I’m practicing hard, doing what I can do. Just see what Coach Reid has in store for me, what...
    Hope Hicks is traveling with President Donald Trump again, marking her first flight on the presidential aircraft since testing positive for the coronavirus. Hicks, who serves as an adviser to the president, left the White House with the president and other staff on Thursday for a two-day campaign trip to North Carolina and Florida. She was not wearing a face mask when she boarded Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House nor when she boarded Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews. Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who tested positive for COVID, was also on the trip.    It's unclear when Hicks officially returned to work. Thursday marks the end of 14 days from her positive test but the White House has been arguing that 10 days is also sufficient to quarantine if a person is not showing symptoms. Hicks tested positive for coronavirus on October 1. She started...

Despite efforts to revive him by a BART police officer and medical personnel who responded, the man was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy was scheduled for Thursday afternoon at the Contra Costa County Coroner’s Office to determine the exact cause of death. Check back for updates.  
    Getty The Thursday Night Football game between the Bills-Chiefs has been rescheduled. There is no NFL Thursday Night Football game on TV tonight, October 15 after the Bills-Chiefs game was rescheduled. The game was pushed back after the Bills-Titans matchup was rescheduled to Tuesday, October 13 as a result of players testing positive for COVID-19. This would have meant Buffalo would play two matchups in 48 hours which is not possible in the NFL with the recovery time needed for players. Instead, the Bills-Chiefs game was moved from Thursday Night Football to Monday Night Football at 5 p.m. Eastern on October 19. There is one college football game on the TV schedule as Georgia State takes on Arkansas State tonight at 7:30 p.m. Eastern on ESPN.

    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday he would give in to Democratic demands relating to coronavirus testing in a pandemic relief package, a small step toward a deal. "When I speak to Pelosi today, I'm going to tell her that we're not going to let the testing issue stand in the way," Mnuchin said on CNBC's Squawk Box Thursday morning. "We'll fundamentally agree with their testing language, subject to minor issues. This issue is being overblown," Mnuchin added. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said the Trump administration's language regarding a national plan for coronavirus testing, tracing, treatment, and vaccine distribution is “grossly inadequate." Mnuchin said Wednesday that it is highly unlikely that a coronavirus relief package will be agreed upon before the election due to the gulf between both parties. Besides the language about coronavirus testing, there is significant disagreement between the two sides on state and local...
    Jim CramerScott Mlyn | CNBC CNBC's Jim Cramer on Thursday advised investors against selling U.S. equities in response to spiking coronavirus cases across European nations. "If you follow what they're doing and you sell our stocks because of what's happening right now in France, that's going to prove to be something that you might regret," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street." "We're importing their negativity. I don't think it's necessarily going to last," he added, as U.S. stock futures were seeing sharp declines in the premarket. Shortly after Wall Street's open Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq were all down about 1%. European stocks were sliding Thursday, with the Stoxx 600 down over 2%, as global investors weighed increased coronavirus restrictions in countries such as France, which has declared a public health state of emergency. The U.K. government on Thursday imposed tougher coronavirus restrictions on London...
    Between alterations to the Week 4 and Week 5 NFL schedules, the league really found itself in a bind when it came to a number of games in Week 6. The Week 6 schedule that existed in September is not the Week 6 schedule that will be played out this week. Nine teams are involved in some sort of schedule adjustment, due in large part to the Patriots-Broncos game being moved back from Week 5 to Week 6. This is probably only the beginning. As the Titans’ COVID-19 outbreak showed, one team’s misfortune could lead to a lot of schedule movement once again.  Below, you’ll find the up-to-date Week 6 schedule, along with a team-by-team breakdown of the nine teams who have different schedules upcoming than they were expecting.  WEEK 6 PICKS: Against the spread | Straight up NFL schedule Week 6 Sunday, Oct. 18 Game Time...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots will finally resume practice on Thursday — and Cam Newton will joining in on the fun. Newton is off the NFL’s reserve/COVID list and is on track to start Sunday’s rescheduled game against the Denver Broncos. He was activated from the list on Wednesday, after spending 12 days on the list after testing positive for COVID-19 back on Oct. 2. Thursday will be New England’s first real practice in nearly two weeks. The team spent much of last week working remotely after Stephon Gilmore tested positive after the Week 4’s loss in Kansas City, and only had a light walkthrough last Saturday before shutting down the facilities at Gillette on Sunday after Byron Cowart tested positive. Gilmore could also be back in the mix for New England on Thursday. The Patriots will practice Thursday and Friday leading up to Sunday’s game against the 1-3 Broncos...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – With just 19 days to go until Election Day, the Trump campaign will be putting Florida in the spotlight on Thursday with a number of rallies throughout the day topped off by a President Donald Trump town hall in Miami. The one-hour event will be held outdoors at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. It will be moderated by NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie.

    (CNN)A surge in coronavirus cases, which hit Europe for the first time in early spring, is back — but this time around, governments are imposing local restrictions and keeping their economies open, Zamira Rahim, Pierre Bairin and Gaëlle Fournier report. Many politicians feel that locking down society once again is too high a price to pay. But health and economic experts CNN spoke to disagree, saying in the long run, a short "circuit-breaker" lockdown, as recommended by the scientists advising the UK government, is better than the so-called "whack-a-mole" strategy of containing subsequent waves of the outbreak. Let's look at the situation in the UK: As a result of its spring lockdown, the British economy shrank by 20% in the second quarter, pushing it into the deepest recession of any major developed economy. Which is why Prime Minister Boris Johnson is now under pressure from some members of his Cabinet...

    SANAA/GENEVA (Reuters) - Planes carrying prisoners exchanged by the warring parties in Yemen are set to take off on Thursday in an operation to return about 1,000 men home across the front lines, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said. The Saudi-led military coalition and Yemen's Houthi movement agreed last month in Switzerland to exchange 1,081 prisoners, including 15 Saudis, in the largest swap since peace talks in December 2018 that have since stalled. "The ICRC teams are present in different airports. The preparations are ongoing," spokesperson of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Yara Khaweja told Reuters. "If everything goes as planned, the release operation will hopefully happen in the coming few hours." An ICRC airplane which is expected to carry Houthis released from captivity by the coalition has landed in Sayoun airport in the government-held Hadramout region, a Reuters witness said. Two other airplanes...

    WASHINGTON - With their once-planned Thursday night debate canceled, Republican U.S. President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, instead are staging dueling town hall question-and-answer sessions with voters.  NBC News said Wednesday it would broadcast an 8 p.m. prime-time town hall Thursday, with Trump facing voters in the southern city of Miami, Florida.  ABC News had already scheduled a town hall with Biden for the same time in the eastern city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally at Orlando Sanford International Airport, Oct. 12, 2020, in Sanford, Florida.Florida and Pennsylvania are key battleground states for each candidate in the Nov. 3 election. The number of voters tuning in to each of the town halls could give an unscientific indication of whether voters prefer one candidate over the other less than three weeks ahead of the official Election...
    Donald Trump backed out of the town hall debate scheduled for Thursday night because, with the Commission on Presidential Debates opting for a remote debate due to Trump’s coronavirus, he wouldn’t have been able to interrupt constantly. So former Vice President Joe Biden—who was willing to debate—went ahead and scheduled a town hall on ABC for Thursday. Trump has now scheduled a competing town hall on NBC—which means he’ll be aired on NBC itself, MSNBC, and CNBC, while Biden is only on one channel. Basically, NBC is rewarding Trump for backing out of a debate because he didn’t want to play by the rules. Trump’s event will be moderated by Today show host Savannah Guthrie, who will be seated 12 feet away from him at an outdoor event in Miami, Florida. That level of caution will be safe, the network said, because Dr. Clifford Lane of the National Institutes of Health and...
    (CNN)A federal judge in Virginia said Wednesday he will re-open voter registration in the state through Thursday after a computer outage took down the system on Tuesday, the deadline to register. Judge John Gibney Jr. said the order would extend to both online registration and in-person registration. "You can't go back in time and register people," Gibney said. Absent his intervention, "Almost an entire day of voter registration will be lost." The computer outage was caused when a construction crew hit a fiber data line during their work. For much of the day Tuesday, visitors to the state portal were met with this message: "Due to a network outage the Citizen Portal is temporarily unavailable."The state board of elections and Department of Elections supported a petition filed by the New Virginia Majority Education Fund and other groups to extend the deadline by 48 hours.

    If you’re not done with presentations after Apple’s iPhone 12 launch earlier, set some time aside on Thursday afternoon to find out what’s new in search. Google just sent out invites for a live stream event on October 15th at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET where “you’ll hear about the latest ways Google is harnessing the power of AI to help people understand the world around them.” Google Google canceled its 2020 developer event earlier this year, and instead has revealed news and updates through a series of smaller blog posts and presentations. This event appears to follow that pattern, and we’d expect to hear more about not just Google Search, but also tools like Assistant, Google Maps, and other attempts to organize information. The live stream will be available right here on Thursday, and we’ll report any updates as they come in.

    New York (CNN Business)Days after leaving the hospital where he was treated for coronavirus, President Donald Trump is embarking on a comeback tour of sorts on his favorite network: Fox News. On Thursday and Friday, Trump was on three different Fox News shows and two right-leaning radio shows (one of which is hosted by Fox News' Mark Levin). In total, he racked up approximately four hours of free airtime, which in turn produced an "echo" since the outlets repeat his talking points without much fact checking. In one notable segment Friday, Trump appeared with Fox's Dr. Marc Siegel, who gave the president a bizarre medical assessment."It sounded liked something ... that you would see an authoritarian do on a state-run television network out in some other country," remarked CNN's Senior Media Reporter Oliver Darcy on this week's Reliable Sources. Darcy blasted Levin for asking "softball questions," adding that Fox is...

    Tom Brady’s arrival in Florida in the offseason was met with much fanfare. He signed a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers worth almost $60 million (including bonuses). Tom Brady is expected to lead the Bucs to the playoffs this season. With a 3-1 record, the Florida-based outfit is on-track to make it to the post-season. On the other hand, Nick Foles joined Matt Nagy’s Chicago Bears in a trade deal from Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this year. He started the season as the back-up behind youngster Mitchell Trubisky. However, Nagy announced that Foles would start in Week Four after an impressive display against Atlanta Falcons the week before. Foles underperformed last weekend as the Bears lost to the Indianapolis Colts. Now, Brady and Foles will set a new NFL record when they start for their respective teams on Thursday night.

    President Donald Trump has predicted that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's silence on packing the Supreme Court signals that it is his intention to do so. Biden on Thursday declined to answer when asked if he would expand the size of the high court to gain a liberal majority if Democrats gain the White House and Senate in November. 'What that means, really, is that they're going to do it, because obviously, that means 100 percent that's what they're going to do,' Trump said in response in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday night. 'They're going to end the filibuster and they're going to do things that you wouldn't have thought,' Trump added, referring to the Senate procedural rule that requires 60 votes to consider most legislation. 'If they ever got in, day one, this would be the first move they make, end the filibuster --...

    President Donald Trump’s Covid-19 infection and the growing spread of the virus through the ranks of the White House and his campaign have thrown the presidential debates into complete chaos. As of Thursday evening, the Trump campaign, Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s campaign, and the Commission on Presidential Debates have all issued separate and conflicting statements about what they want to happen on October 15. The original plan for the debates was to have Trump and Biden face off on September 29, October 15, and October 22, and Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris on October 7. The vice presidential matchup and the first Trump-Biden debate happened as scheduled, but Trump’s shock announcement that he had tested positive for the coronavirus — followed by the growing list of infections among his inner circle — tossed a gigantic wrench in the works.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday there could be no action on a stand-alone bill to aid airlines or any other sector of the economy without an agreement with the White House and Republicans on a broader stimulus package. Her remarks suggested that there will be no quick relief for airlines or resolution of the standoff over aiding the U.S. economy, even amid warning signs the recovery will weaken without further stimulus. Pelosi has rebuffed President Donald Trump’s calls for Congress to pass relief legislation piecemeal, though she said airline aid could move through Congress before a comprehensive deal is voted on -- if there is agreement on a broader package. “They just want money for the president to spend money on who knows what?” Pelosi said at a news conference. “There is no stand-alone bill without a bigger bill.” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin broached the idea of continuing stimulus discussions...
    (CBS DETROIT) – Gov. Gretchen Whitmer delivered remarks Thursday afternoon after the news of a militia group plotted to kidnap her.

The state has also charged seven with ties to the plot and officials say all 13 are in custody. Attorney General Dana Nessel said Thursday when she announced charges, that the group was made up of members or associates of the militia group Wolverine Watchmen.

    A top conservative radio host whose adamant support of President Trump helped galvanize his election in 2016 scored a virtual visit from the commander in chief himself. On his radio show Thursday afternoon, Rush Limbaugh said Trump will join him on the airwaves Friday as part of a "virtual rally." “I’m thrilled to announce that our commander in chief, President Donald Trump, will be right here tomorrow hosting the largest virtual rally in radio history,” Limbaugh said during his show on Thursday. “It will be special, and I am really looking forward to it.” Trump has been eager to resume campaigning only a week after he tested positive for COVID-19 a week ago, and Limbaugh's show provides an opportunity for the president to address his supporters remotely. Trump participated in his first TV interview since getting sick with Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo on Thursday morning, when he said...

It represents a major departure from IBM's previous priorities and one of the boldest moves in the company's more-than-a-century-long history.IBM's managed infrastructure services business represented nearly a quarter of IBM's revenue last year. But IBM believes its future lies in the hybrid cloud -- a technical setup wherein companies may use multiple clouds in addition to their own on-premises servers. IBM's platform gives companies tools to more easily navigate between those various environments.New CEO Arvind Krishna made the hybrid cloud the focus when he took the reins from former CEO Ginni Rometty earlier this year. IBM has made large investments in cloud computing over the past several...
    It’s official: Demand for the Travis Scott meal gave a major boost to McDonald’s quarterly sales. The fast-food giant said Thursday its comparable sales in the US rose 4.6 percent in the third quarter — sharply reversing the 8.7 percent decline they had suffered in the second quarter — and partly credited the unexpected success of the $6 meal it recently promoted with the Houston-born rapper. That meal — a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, french fries and a Sprite — sparked temporary shortages of ingredients including fresh beef and chopped lettuce. It also helped drive McDonald’s highest US monthly sales in nearly a decade despite COVID-19 closures that have limited much of its business to drive-through and pickup orders. On Thursday, an info-graphic on the company’s website said the Travis Scott promotion and its Spicy Chicken McNuggets, also introduced in September, were “strategic marketing investments” that helped fuel a double-digit...
    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump is spinning up his own claims about his health, including that he is no longer contagious with coronavirus, filling up the information void left by his doctors' lack of public candor.Trump told Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo Thursday morning that he doesn't believe he is contagious anymore and that he is ready to resume campaign rallies -- environments where participants previously have not been required to social distance or wear masks. The President also said he is immune from catching coronavirus again.However, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say people infected with coronavirus need to wait 10 days after their symptoms first appear before being around others and need to be 24 hours fever-free without taking fever-reducing medication. Trump tested positive on Thursday evening. By those guidelines, Trump should still be isolating, not campaigning. But just two days after being discharged from the hospital,...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is shining a spotlight on President Trump’s unpredictable nature. Speaking with reporters Thursday morning before boarding a flight to campaign in the battleground state of Arizona, the former vice president was asked about the president’s insistence minutes earlier that he wouldn’t take part in a virtual presidential debate with Biden next week. “You never know what's going to come out of his mouth,” Biden said. TRUMP SAYS HE WON'T 'WASTE MY TIME' WITH A 'VIRTUAL DEBATE' WITH BIDEN With Trump huddling in the White House after being diagnosed with COVID-19 last Friday and after being hospitalized for three days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for coronavirus treatments, the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) announced Thursday morning that the Oct. 15 scheduled second debate between the president and Biden would be held virtually, with both candidates taking part from separate remote locations.

    (CNN)"They knew what was happening, and they didn't tell you." Joe Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, did not mince words when prosecuting the Trump administration's handling of the pandemic during the vice presidential debate last night. "The American people have witnessed what is the greatest failure of any presidential administration in the history of our country," Harris said, arguing that frontline workers had been treated like "sacrificial workers" and that President Donald Trump had repeatedly minimized the seriousness of the virus.Vice President Mike Pence attempted to put a positive spin on the administration's record on the pandemic. He accused Harris of "playing politics with people's lives," seemingly ignoring the repeated efforts by Trump to explicitly insert politics into the pandemic, including efforts to develop a vaccine. But the facts don't lie: more than 210,000 Americans have died from Covid-19 and more than 7.5 million — roughly one in 44...
