    By: KDKA-TV News Staff WILKINSBURG (KDKA) – The family of a Black man shot and killed by police in Wilkinsburg was in attendance at Wednesday night’s council meeting demanding answers and accountability. Romir Talley’s mother was among those questioning councilmembers about her son’s death. According to the Talley family’s attorney, this is the fourth time they have gone to a council meeting. Wilkinsburg’s mayor was not at the meeting. “We’re here talking to the council and absolutely nothing has changed,” said Paul Jubas, the family’s attorney. “They haven’t done anything. They’re basically just saying ‘oh well, you need to go talk to the mayor, Marita Garrett.’ So, things are going to continue to get even more tense. It’s incredibly important this council starts taking action.” The family wants Officer Robert Gowans to be fire and then charged with Talley’s death. Police allege that Talley...
    The German government announced on Wednesday that Alexei Navalny had been poisoned with a chemical neurotransmitter from the Novichok group – the Kremlin’s Russian spy Sergei Skribal and his daughter were poisoned in the UK in March 2018. Leaders around the world, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, have strongly condemned and called on the Russian government to respond. But US President Donald Trump – who has faced harsh criticism for his lenient approach to Russia – has been almost silent on Navalny’s poisoning, a US response from a National Security Council spokesman on Wednesday. This is the latest incident in which Trump has failed to speak to the Kremlin and seek answers to issues ranging from electoral intervention to the forthcoming bounties on US troops in Afghanistan. At a news conference on Wednesday, Merkel called Navalny a “victim of a crime” and said, “They...
    On Monday, Dana Simmons came downstairs to find her 12-year-old son, Lazare, in tears. He’d completed the first assignment for his seventh-grade history class on Edgenuity, an online platform for virtual learning. He’d received a 50 out of 100. That wasn’t on a practice test — it was his real grade. “He was like, I’m gonna have to get a 100 on all the rest of this to make up for this,” said Simmons in a phone interview with The News Brig. “He was totally dejected.” At first, Simmons tried to console her son. “I was like well, you know, some teachers grade really harshly at the beginning,” said Simmons, who is a history professor herself. Then, Lazare clarified that he’d received his grade less than a second after submitting his answers. A teacher couldn’t have read his response in that time, Simmons knew — her son was being...

Two-thirds of the nation's largest school districts are starting online -- with all the stress and difficulties that brings for teachers, children and their families. But even where in-person schooling is being offered, there are no easy answers.

    Washington (CNN)The Trump administration remained largely silent Wednesday as leaders around the world expressed concern and demanded answers from Russian President Vladimir Putin's government over the revelation that a leading opposition figure had been poisoned by a Soviet-era chemical nerve agent. The German government announced Wednesday that Alexey Navalny had been poisoned with a chemical nerve agent from the Novichok group -- the same agent the Kremlin used to poison ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the United Kingdom in March 2018.Novichok nerve agent used in Alexey Navalny poisoning, says German governmentLeaders around the world, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, offered strong condemnation and called for answers from the Russian government.

    CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin railed against Attorney General Bill Barr after a Wednesday interview in which the nation’s top law enforcement officer repeatedly re-interpreted President Donald Trump’s incendiary and inaccurate comments to make them seem more palatable and truthful. During a panel discussion on the second hour of The Situation Room, Justice Department correspondent Evan Perez and then Toobin weighed in on the long and news-marking Barr interview with anchor Wolf Blitzer just minutes before. In it, Barr breezily dismissed Trump’s use of the loaded term “treason” to attack the previous administration of Barack Obama and Joe Biden, brushed off the president’s conspiracy theory about a nefarious planeload of black-clad rioters jet-setting around the country, and expressed little concern over Trump’s call for supporters to tamper with the 2020 election by trying to vote by mail and in-person. “I’ve known the attorney general for many years,” Perez noted. “And one...

    (CNN)When the German government said Wednesday that Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny had been poisoned by the nerve agent Novichok, one thing was certain: The apparent murder attempt would become a full international crisis.Navalny remains in a serious condition at the intensive care unit of the Charité Hospital in Berlin. But the identification of Novichok as the poison has already raised serious questions about whether Navalny was the target of a state-orchestrated assassination.Suspected poisoning of Putin critic was meant to kill him, not to scare him off, chief aide says"There are very serious questions now which only the Russian government can and must answer," German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a statement Wednesday. After Navalny fell ill while en route from Siberia to Moscow last month, there was room for speculation about who might have ordered an attempt on his life — the anti-corruption campaigner, after all, had many powerful enemies in Russia. But Navalny's supporters are now pointing the finger of blame directly at Russian...

    Protesters in Los Angeles returned to the streets for a second day of demonstrations on Tuesday in response to the fatal police shooting of Dijon Kizzee. Police say that Kizzee, a 29-year-old black man, was stopped for a vehicle code violation while riding his bicycle on Monday. At some point, they claim, Kizzee attempted to run away, and then when the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies caught up to him, he punched one of them in the face. He then dropped some clothing on the ground, and police claim it was then that they saw a handgun within that clothing. They say it was then that the shooting occurred. None of the officers were using body cameras, and no cellphone footage of the incident has surfaced, prompting people to wonder if the police account is true. "Why doesn't the L.A. County Sheriff have bodycams?" asked Earl Ofari Hutchinson,...

It depends on the type of test. The most accurate test is the PCR test that looks for the virus’s genetic material on a nose or throat swab but these tests take longer to run. Rapid tests, that give results in a much shorter period of time, tend to be less accurate and are more likely to give you a false positive or false negative. A rapid, more accurate saliva test should be available in the near future. “We have relatives who will be traveling to ‘safe’ states but don’t want to wear...
    (CNN)At a roundtable event in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday, President Donald Trump answered for a pair Black pastors in the room when they were asked whether they think police violence is a systemic issue. The two pastors were James Ward and Sharon Ward, who said they were pastors for Julia Jackson, the mother of Jacob Blake. Blake, a Black man, was shot seven times in the back by a Kenosha police officer, sparking demonstrations in the city. The Wards were the only African Americans seated at the dais for a roundtable on public safety and were the only participants to bring up Blake's shooting before the President took questions from the press. When a reporter asked the Wards whether, like other Black community leaders, they believed police violence was a systemic issue, Trump interjected, "I don't believe that. I think the police do an incredible job and I think you...
    During Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, spoilers indicate that Nina Reeves will be having a discussion about the search for her biological daughter. There have been a lot of twists and turns incorporated into this storyline over the past couple of years, and it seems that big developments are on the horizon.

The other person is a woman, but it’s not clear exactly who she is. Nina will say that “they” are the key to a secret she is meant to unlock.

I originally thought the risk in doing so was surface contact transmission but is that the real risk? – Marissa on Facebook Surface contamination probably plays much less of a role in transmission than person-to-person contact through respiratory droplets. I would look for an outdoor playground that isn’t busy where your toddler can easily stay away from other kids. And wipe off your child’s hands with disinfectant as soon as they’re done playing.

    Whatever happened to the lost colonists of Roanoke, Virginia? The answer to one of America’s longest and most puzzling questions is now in a new book. In “The Lost Colony and Hatteras Island,” author Scott Dawson surmises the colonial settlers were assimilated into the Croatan tribe on Hatteras Island. Later, the tribe was wiped out by smallpox. The upshot: the tribe was lost, not the colonists. But the book’s bombshell is Dawson’s allegation that the truth has always been known but ignored because of racism, the Daily Mail reported. The “mystery” started in 1587, when over 100 English settlers arrived on Roanoke Island, off the coast of what is now North Carolina. Three years later, they had vanished. The only clue to their whereabouts was the word “Croatan” carved into a wooden post. Dawson, an amateur archaeologist, claims there have been clues throughout the past 430-plus years about the...
    Getty Former Bears LB Brian Urlacher Former Chicago Bulls point guard Jay Williams sat down for an interview with Heavy’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson, and the two discussed everything from the NBA bubble to the future of the Bulls to the recent NBA strike. Williams, who played for the Bulls from 2002-2004, spoke articulately and passionately about the issues of racism and police brutality people of color live with, and he discussed why it’s important to have an open dialogue about these issues instead of negatively reacting on social media. When Scoop B asked Williams about the recent comments made by Hall of Fame linebacker Brian Urlacher, the former point guard revealed he contacted Urlacher personally to discuss them. For those unfamiliar with the situation, Urlacher took to Instagram to belittle the recent NBA strike, and he also ‘liked’ a post calling for the liberation of 17-year-old Kenosha...

    Bob Sampayan doesn’t play the bugle. But if he did, “charge” would likely be his tune of choice — if it signaled the arrival of the cavalry. Or, as Vallejo’s mayor lobbies for, the California Highway Patrol. With uniformed police officer staffing down — 112, though funding’s approved for 130 — Sampayan said CHP assistance would help considerably in corralling a skyrocketing stolen vehicle increase and, with fingers crossed, homicides that reached 19 with the double-murder Aug. 20. “People are saying, ‘Do something to make our community safer.’ Our community is feeling unsafe. People are emailing, ‘You better do something about this,’” Sampayan said. “People are saying they’re moving … or that they won’t shop here.” Sampayan said city officials should  take some of the blame. “We have really, really missed the boat,” he said. Sampayan said police presence would help, with 12 hired officers now in the academy. However,...
    (CNN)Before he was identified as the police officer captured in a viral video in which he shoots a Black man multiple times in the back, Rusten Sheskey pedaled around the lakeside city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, as part of the bike patrol and walked the shopping mall beat during the holidays. He'd occasionally bring a squad car home from work and turn on the siren for neighborhood kids, one neighbor recalled. An American flag flies outside his home in a middle-class neighborhood.But four days after Sheskey's shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake prompted protests and rioting in the typically quiet streets of Kenosha, much remains unknown about the seven-year veteran officer and what prompted him to open fire. Authorities have declined to provide information on a number of critical questions in the turbulent days since Blake was shot. Most importantly, they have not offered any detailed explanation for why Sheskey used deadly...
    MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) – Miami Beach detectives need help investigating a woman’s death from back in June. Investigators say 38-year-old Aubrey Figg died inside her apartment near Collins Avenue and 2 Street. Her husband found her with a large cut on her neck. Detectives interviewed several people but have yet to arrest anyone. Her family is frustrated at the lack of progress in the case. “We still don’t know,” said Diane Fletcher, Figg’s aunt. “That’s our frustrating thing is that we want answers and we want to know why.” “And also why it’s past three months now and we don’t even have the priority DNA back that could have given us answers already,” added Figg’s other aunt, Elizabeth Jordan. The police department is encouraging anyone with information to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Like many people around the United States, Patriots safety Devin McCourty is at a loss. His emotions were on full display Thursday afternoon, talking with reporters about the state of the country. McCourty is a powerful speaker and is never afraid to weigh in on the current climate. But on Thursday, it was as though he had just played in a grueling NFL game. He’s tired of talking about change, and wants to finally see some action to create that change. But like many of us, he’s just not sure how to make it happen. “I’ve been thinking a lot the last couple of days and I’ve had so many different emotions of being angry, of being sad. A lot of it is what I’ve been trying to talk to young kids about. I’ve felt hopeless,” McCourty told reporters during a video chat following Thursday’s practice. “I...

    SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) — A suburban Detroit fire chief said Wednesday that he still can’t explain why a 20-year-old woman declared dead at her home was discovered alive hours later at a funeral home. An emergency medical crew did not “detect signs of life,” despite immediately attempting to revive Timesha Beauchamp and twice more returning to her room when relatives said she appeared to be breathing or had a heartbeat, Southfield Chief Johnny Menifee said. “We, too, share in their anguish,” Menifee said of Beauchamp’s family. “We know that they want answers.

    (CNN)It has been more than 160 days since Breonna Taylor, an EMT and aspiring nurse, was killed in her own home when three plainclothes Louisville police officers executing a "no-knock" warrant returned gunfire after her boyfriend fired a warning shot because he thought he was shooting at intruders. Fueled by uncertainty over the criminal investigation into Taylor's death, the city has become a powder keg as tensions remain high. On Tuesday, that fragility will be tested as protest organizers look to hold one of the largest demonstrations the city has seen since Taylor was struck by eight police bullets. Organizers plan to interrupt one of the state's most treasured events, the Kentucky Derby, rescheduled for early September.The city has been preparing for the protests and protestors have been undergoing training to prepare for Tuesday's demonstration. Celebrities including NBA superstar LeBron James and Oprah Winfrey have helped to keep protesters' efforts...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts used the first week of padded practices to get re-acclimated to contact. They started the second week with a trip to Lucas Oil Stadium for a dress rehearsal for the Sept. 13 season opener at Jacksonville. The Colts hit. They ran full speed. Occasionally, players wound up on the ground and some even waved to the empty seats as they jogged from the tunnel onto the field. It was a simulated game at its finest. “Definitely the most physical we’ve been the whole camp,” Pro Bowl linebacker Darius Leonard said. “The intensity was high. It was something we needed. You don’t want the first game to be the first game you go live. With the great line we have and the great backs we have, it was amazing.” Coach Frank Reich scheduled this workout — and a second one Saturday — for several reasons....
    Over the past two years, on waking, I have felt as if I have sponges on the bottom of both feet. Now it feels like tingling. What could it mean? Name and address supplied. Your symptoms suggest the problem is peripheral neuropathy — the sensations that occur when peripheral nerves, such as those in the arms and legs, are damaged.  Type 2 diabetes is one of the most common causes, though others include long-term excessive alcohol intake, low levels of vitamin B12, and an underactive thyroid gland. In your longer letter, you explain that your symptoms affect both feet and, aged 69, you are in good health, aside from osteoarthritis in the hands and neck.  When I saw patients with your symptoms, I would examine their lower legs and feet and, with their eyes closed, test to see if they could feel the sensation of being touched with cotton wool,...
    MONTREAL (Reuters) - Canada is pressing Iran for additional answers over the downing in January of a Ukrainian jetliner, after an announcement by Tehran on Sunday provided "limited and selected information." Iran's Revolutionary Guard has said it accidentally shot down Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 on Jan. 8, mistaking it for a missile at a time when tensions were high between Iran and the United States. Many of the 176 victims killed in the crash were Canadian citizens or permanent residents, or had Canada as their final destination. Tehran said an analysis from the black boxes of the Ukrainian plane shows it was hit by two missiles 25 seconds apart and that passengers were still alive for some time after the impact of the first blast. "This preliminary report only provides limited and selected information regarding this tragic event," Canada's Transport Minister Marc Garneau and Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne...
    By: KDKA-TV News Staff WILKINSBURG (KDKA) — Protesters in Wilkinsburg demanded answers on Saturday in the death of Romir Talley, who was shot and killed by police in 2019. A smaller group continued their call for action on Sunday. Around 20 people, including Talley’s mother, gathered outside the home of Wilkinsburg Police Chief Ophelia ‘Cookie’ Coleman. They brought a list of questions and demanded answers and action. Talley was shot by a Wilkinsburg Police officer more than eight months ago. Kyna James read a list of the following questions being asked of Chief Coleman. “The questions Tasha Talley, Romir Talley’s mom, wants to ask Chief of Police of Wilkinsburg Cookie Coleman, are: “Did you receive any of the “right to knows,” written or emailed?” “Did Robert Gowans undergo a psychological evaluation that warranted his return back to work, and if yes, what were your findings?” “Who are you...

    By SARA REESE, The Times EAST CHICAGO, Ind. (AP) — It’s been 25 years since 20-year-old William “Bill” Graber left his apartment on a hot August night to smoke a cigarette and never returned home. Graber died after he was shot once in the chest Aug. 2, 1995, while hanging out with friends on a corner in the 800 block of West 149th Street in East Chicago — about a block away from the apartment he shared with his mother. Graber’s family didn’t know anyone who’d been murdered before he was killed, said his mother, Mary Katherine Laird. His homicide ripped a hole in the fabric of their family. “We lost a son,” Laird said. “We lost our home.” Graber’s sister, Jodi Lyn Anderson, 44, was away at college in Iowa when her brother was killed, and she never returned to live in Indiana. Laird couldn’t bear to remain in...
    From time to time, I find small purple bruises on my forearms for no reason. They usually fade after a couple of days and I'm otherwise fit and healthy. Should I bother my GP with it? Yes, absolutely. Any unusual changes to your body should be discussed with your doctor. More often than not, symptoms won't point to anything sinister, but if it is something serious, the chances of effective treatment and cure are always better when a problem is detected early. Bruising usually occurs when blood vessels are damaged by injury, causing a small bleed under the skin. Special chemicals within the blood called clotting factors ensure that the blood clots, stopping a bruise from becoming too extensive. If you start to bruise more or for no reason, it can point to an issue with your blood's ability to clot. Many older people suffer more bruising as a normal part...
    Do you know the phrase, “Moving deck chairs on the Titanic?” Usually that means being so focused on small problems that we ignore the catastrophic threat that’s about to engulf us. The same phrase comes to mind when encountering an issue or question that has lost its meaning in light of more pressing circumstances. As in, an interviewer asking a COVID-19 era job candidate, “Where do you plan to be in five years?” Amy Lindgren Granted, on its face, that still seems like a normal thing to ask before bringing someone on board. For example, an individual who plans to be running their own company using your customer list and patents is certainly someone to weed out early. Not that you’d ever hear that answer from a candidate, but still. Likewise, a candidate who expresses genuine interest in moving up in your company is also someone you’d like to know...
    By RYAN MURPHY, The Virginian-Pilot CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) — The frustration is so thick in Aleks Fentress’ voice, it seems to be dripping through the phone as she describes her family’s options this fall. A mother of three, Fentress has been scrambling to figure out what to do with her kids since the announcement that Chesapeake would be starting school fully virtual. In the end, she said she has no good choices. She’s anxious about her kids getting services — two of her children have special needs — and about the impact on their finances. Fentress and her police officer husband made do while schools were closed in the spring. Neither can work from home, so a nanny came in some days while her in-laws looked after the kids on others. But now, with education set to resume through a computer screen, she wants to ensure her kids — ages...
    If playoff basketball is a chess match, the loss of Joe Harris has put Brooklyn in checkmate. The Nets were already decimated, but losing the only proven shooter they had left allowed Toronto to adjust and take away center Jarrett Allen as well. Between the Raptors crowding him and his teammates not finding him on the half-roll, Allen was all-too-invisible in a 117-92 Game 3 loss. “It was a little bit of both. I feel like whenever I was rolling they’d always bring another man to come tag me, and I just never got a chance to look at the rim,” Allen said. “That’s just how they played and they did that excellently. As you can see I wasn’t able to get a shot up, and we were able to just kick it out to 3.” Allen had a game-high 17 rebounds, but was held scoreless until 6:23 left in...

    BERKELEY (CBS SF) — Police in Berkeley on Friday confirmed the arrest of a suspect in connection with the slaying of 19-year-old UC Berkeley student Seth Smith in June. Police did not offer any details in regards to the suspect taken into custody or the circumstances of the arrest. On June 15 at 11:34 p.m., Berkeley police officers responded to a report of a man lying on the ground bleeding in the area of Dwight Way and Valley Street.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — When Bill Belichick stands at the podium — or, in the era of COVID-19, sits in front of a computer screen for a video conference — there are certain lines of questioning that almost always lead to a short answer. One such avenue is a question about a player or person from the past, someone who no longer has any impact on what’s best for the football team, and someone who has nothing to do with the current state of the New England Patriots. So, when a reporter on Friday morning posed a question to Belichick asking if it’s strange to not see Tom Brady in the building on a daily basis, a very brief non-answer seemed like it was in the cards. Belichick, though, gave a surprisingly lengthy answer. “Well we’ve had a lot of great, great players over the course of that...

    Britney Spears decided to give some love to her fans on Thursday by responding to some of their most-asked questions. In a new video shared on her Instagram page, the singer talked about everything from her favorite holiday to her favorite book, all while wearing a low-cut, midriff-baring top. Designed with a pattern of delicate floral arrangments across the white fabric, Britney’s top looked perfect for a summer’s day, especially since it showcased her flat stomach and her belly button piercing. It also featured poofy sleeves and cloth-covered buttons, which came to a halt at the center of her v-neck. She paired her outfit with a layered white necklace a couple of bracelets. During the video, Britney swayed slowly from side to side while answering questions. It looked like she standing in her backyard, a large tree, and a bright green lawn was visible in the background. To begin, she...
    ALBANY — State lawmakers grilled the utility company heads from Con Edison and PSEG Long Island Thursday, demanding answers about why Tropical Storm Isaias left more than one million New Yorkers without power for well over a week. Isaias ripped through the Empire State on Aug. 4 — impacting a combined 1.3 million customers in the Hudson Valley, on Long Island and in New York City, according to records kept by the Public Service Commission which regulates New York’s utility companies. “Throughout this period, some utilities provided inaccurate information, making it challenging for families and businesses to plan. This was more than inconvenience. It was completely unacceptable and a public health and safety concern,” PSC Chairman John Rhodes told lawmakers. He said his commission’s now two-week-long investigation has exposed service failures from Con Ed, PSEG and Central Hudson resulted in individuals experiencing multiple days with no electricity or internet...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Four weeks have come and gone since the last $600 weekly federal unemployment benefit hit peoples’ bank accounts. Tens of millions of unemployed Americans say they relied on that extra cash. KDKA investigator Meghan Schiller talked to two people who said that extra money sounds nice, but they’re still waiting on their first check. Desperate for answers, Michelle Eckstein reached out to KDKA for help. “Where did we slip between the cracks? Just not me, but all of us?” said Eckstein. Adrian Wallace messaged KDKA’s Meghan Schiller on Twitter. “I’ve been waiting for the past two to three months now and it’s just so stressful,” Wallace said. Wallace feels like he’s at his wit’s end, and he’s not alone. The number of people filing for unemployment benefits last week increased to 1.1 million people nationwide. Experts only expected 923,000. “It just becomes difficult and you’re doing everything...

    By COLLIN BINKLEY and KATIE FOODY, Associated Press As schools across the U.S. decide whether to reopen this fall, many are left wondering how to know if it's safe. Public health experts say virus rates in the community should be low, but there's little agreement on a specific threshold or even a measurement. The federal government has largely left it to state and local governments to decide when it's safe to bring students back to the classroom. The result is a patchwork of policies that vary widely by state and county. Minnesota, for example, suggests fully in-person classes if a county's two-week case rate is no higher than 10 per 10,000 people. In Pennsylvania, it's considered safe if a county's positive virus tests average lower than 5% for a week. The uncertainty has become a source of tension among school leaders who say they are being pressured to reopen without...

    One of former special counsel Robert Mueller's top prosecutors distorted what the former FBI director testified under oath about President Trump's written answers for the Russia investigation. Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official and FBI general counsel who has come under constant attack by the president and his allies, appeared for an interview Tuesday with MSNBC's Nicole Wallace to react to a new Senate report that found that contacts between the Trump 2016 campaign and Russia posed a "grave" counterintelligence threat. One key takeaway Weissmann and Wallace discussed was the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report's suggestion that Trump may have lied to Mueller's team about his conversations with longtime confidant Roger Stone and others about WikiLeaks. In his written answers, Trump said he did not recall being aware of Stone or others attempting to contact WikiLeaks or other entities that the U.S. government alleges to have been used or...

    GENEVA, Ill. (CBS) — Students are gearing up to head back to campus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. With COVID-19 precautions in place, the campus will reopen next week. But for students with physical disabilities, the future of their semester is unclear. CBS 2’s Tara Molina on Monday sat down with students and their families, working to get a straight answer from the school. All of this started weeks ago, when students got a letter explaining their accessible dorms would be closed this semester. They fought that and got those rooms back. But, now it’s a fight for the services those students need. One of those students is Ethan Olson, 19, from Geneva. Olson has a contagious laugh and a love for the U of I. He’s an Illini basketball and football superfan, but that’s not all. Olson loves the school for its opportunity – his freedom. “I...

Dr. Mallika is offering her best advice, but as always, consult your personal doctor before making any decisions about your personal health. Jane says she’ll be traveling from Boston to Las Vegas later this month and wonders if she needs to fill out the Massachusetts Travel Form before she returns.

You’ll be expected to quarantine for 14 days upon your return unless you obtain a negative test no more than 72 hours before you arrive home. And failure to comply could result in a $500 fine per day. “My disabled brother takes an Uber to see my 82-year-old mother once a week,...

    If you had a time machine, how would you use it? Would you give your teen self a pep talk, prevent the death of Harambe, or give Native Americans weapons to defeat Christopher Columbus? Hide According to the time travel meme, the answer is all of the above. Hide The time travel meme puts a spin on the classic “girls vs. boys” formula by suggesting how men and women would react differently to the invention of a time travel device. According to KnowYourMeme, the meme originated on Reddit in early July when u/Korina-chan shared a photo of a running Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is on his way to save Harambe upon learning of the invention of time travel. This sexist version of the meme suggests that boys would make the heroic decision to save a beloved gorilla, while girls would waste time travel on something frivolous like reliving their...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The U.S. Postal Service is at the center of a fight that seems to be getting more intense by the day. Members of the House of Representatives may end their recess early to deal with changes made by the new postmaster general that could impact the 2020 election. Meanwhile, Mayor Bill de Blasio is demanding an investigation after getting reports that mailboxes across the city are being removed, CBS2’s Hazel Sanchez reported Sunday. Dozens pulled from neighborhoods are now lined up behind the Cornell Post Office in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx. The USPS said it’s part of the routine removal of redundant or seldom used collection boxes, because of a decline in letters and flat mail.

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is calling the lawmakers back into session from a summer recess to vote on funding for the U.S. Postal Service as the new postmaster general proposes cost-cutting measures. Democrats fear that the cuts in service are aimed at delaying the delivery of mail-in ballots in the November 3 presidential election. House Democrats Summon Postal Service Chief Over Mail Delays President Trump has defended Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a wealthy Republican donor, who has implemented cost-cutting measures that have prompted concerns about mail delivery The House would consider legislation to keep the post office from implementing what Pelosi calls changes to “operations or level of service” that it had at the start of 2020. “The Postal Service is a pillar of our democracy, enshrined in the Constitution and essential for providing critical services: delivering prescriptions, Social Security checks, paychecks, tax returns and absentee ballots...
    Washington — Democratic leaders in Congress are ramping up the pressure on the U.S. Postal Service's top officials to answer questions about recent operational changes that have led to delays in mail delivery amid growing concerns many voters could be disenfranchised by late-arriving ballots. The Democrats are demanding new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and Postal Service Board of Governors Chairman Robert Duncan answer questions before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on August 24, moving up the date of a hearing from mid-September, which DeJoy was asked to attend. The accelerated oversight hearing comes as union leaders and congressional Democrats have sounded the alarm over the backlog of mail and slowdown in delivery spurred by operational changes implemented by DeJoy, which they argue has led to dysfunction at the Postal Service.  Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox "The postmaster general and top Postal Service leaders must answer to the Congress...
    PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Nineteen years have passed and there is still no answer as to who killed 11-year-old Shannon Paulk. The 11-year-old disappeared on Aug. 16, 2001 after going outside to play in her neighborhood at the Candlestick Mobile Home Park in Prattville. Hunters found her body two months later in a hunting preserve in the northern part of the county. No one has ever been charged in her death “It’s the worst nightmare you could ever live,” the girl’s mother Marie Stroud told WSFA. A vigil is being held Sunday evening in Prattville on the nineteenth anniversary of her disappearance. Organizers hope an arrest can be made before the twentieth anniversary of her disappearance. “Maybe this will bring somebody out and tell us something,” Paulk’s aunt, Tammy Evans, told the station. “C’mon, it’s been 19 years. Surely somebody knows something.” Prosecutors in 2017 empaneled a special grand jury...
    The Mets had their chances early against Aaron Nola on Saturday night. They missed them, and then they disappeared. Nola escaped two jams through the first three innings then shut down the Mets the rest of the night to cruise to a 6-2 Phillies win at Citizens Bank Park. “It almost looked like everything we took was called and everything we swung at was out of the zone,” manager Luis Rojas said. “That’s the kind of pitcher he is.” The Mets mustered just three hits off of Nola, each of them coming the first time through the order. They went 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position as their struggles in that department continued — sinking to 2-for-19 in the series and 43-for-207 (.208) on the season — and letting Nola off the hook before he took over.

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – All the momentum the Sacramento Kings had when the NBA season shut down in March disappeared when they arrived in the bubble. The disappointing performance in Florida has left the Kings on the outside of the playoffs for the 14th straight season. That’s the longest active drought in the NBA and led to change in the front office with Vlade Divac stepping down as general manager. “I feel like you’re always trying to play your best basketball late into March and April and I thought we were on our way to doing that,” first-year coach Luke Walton said. “So that part of it, I thought it was a success. We hit a bunch of lows this year too. Some came from injuries, some came from the way we were playing and that, we don’t want to see.” Those lows were evident in the bubble when the Kings...

    NOVATO (KPIX) — A diabetic San Quentin inmate, who claimed he was dropped off at a Novato hotel to quarantine with little state support after his early release from prison during the facility’s deadly COVID-19 outbreak, has died and his family is demanding answers. Mike Madeux first talked with KPIX 5 on July 31, complaining that during his first two weeks in quarantine he was left there for days without food. Finally, Madeux told KPIX 5, his meals where beginning to arrive. But about a week after the interview, his family sensed something was wrong when he didn’t answer any of their phone calls. Then just 2 days away from being fully released from his quarantine, his mother in Tennessee got the call she hoped to never receive. “I was 16 when I had him so we grew up together,” said Teri Sue Madeux, Mike’s mother. “I just can’t believe...
