"There are very long days, and you're on your feet the entire time," said Muoio, 39. "Sometimes you don't even have time to eat."During a typical January, the presence of CES in and around Las Vegas is unmistakable. Hotel prices skyrocket, restaurants and clubs are packed, and workers like Muoio log extra hours to ensure everything goes on without a hitch for the major money-making show and related events. Last year, the 170,000 CES attendees were estimated to have generated $169 million in direct spending and a broader economic impact of $291.2 million,...

Like him, multiple citizens had to go to the alternative transportation services to the subway provided by the City Government, asking traffic police or personnel, in the absence, they said, of clear signs.

    (CNN)Former Atlanta police chief Erika Shields, who stepped down after an officer shot and killed a man following a struggle in a Wendy's parking lot, will now lead the Louisville Metro Police Department, which is still under the spotlight almost a year after the shooting death of Breonna Taylor. Shields, who stepped aside in June a day after Rayshard Brooks was killed, will now take over on January 19. A selection panel unanimously picked her, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said at a news conference Wednesday. At a news conference announcing her selection, Shields faced questions about Brooks and Taylor. Read More "It does an injustice to Breonna Taylor to say that they're similar instances. They're not," Shields said. "Every situation is different. The public is not going to take the time to differentiate. They're just going to see police heavy handedness.

              Certain Nashville activists will continue their “defund the police” rhetoric despite the bravery that law enforcement officers displayed before and after last week’s explosion downtown, said Nashville Fraternal Order of Police President James Smallwood. As reported, a massive Christmas Day explosion damaged at least 41 businesses on Second Avenue and collapsed one building. Nashville Mayor John Cooper praised six uniformed Metro Nashville Police officers who he said saved several lives after they determined that a parked RV in that area was about to detonate. Smallwood said that people, though, will always have agendas. “We see a lot of politically-driven agendas, and because of those politically-driven agendas — like our revolving door criminal justice system — in Nashville over the last year we have seen more than a 36 percent spike in crime and that’s horrible,” Smallwood told The Tennessee Star Tuesday. “While I...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Even though the snow stopped, the roads were still tough to navigate on Christmas Eve. The single-digit temperatures froze whatever snow wasn’t plowed away. MNDOT plow drivers are working in 12-hour shifts for the rest of the holiday to clear roads, but when it’s less than 15 degrees outside, their treatment options like salt and brine are less effective. Thursday’s sunshine helped with melting the interstates, but MNDOT says drivers shouldn’t trust the open blacktop going into the evening. “A word of warning, as that sun goes down if our roads are wet that may freeze again, so we’re going to continue to slick spots for the next day or two for sure,” said Anne Meyer with MNDOT.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Those dreaming of a white Christmas in Minnesota this year are about to see their dreams come true Wednesday as a winter storm pushes into the state, threatening blizzard conditions in western and southern Minnesota, and perhaps more than 10 inches of snow in the Twin Cities metro. Meteorologist Riley O’Connor says the cold front carrying the storm blew into northwestern Minnesota early Wednesday morning. Traffic cameras in the Moorhead area showed blowing snow before sunrise. The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the area until midnight, as winds gusts stronger than 50 mph are expected. Also under a blizzard warning are much of southern and central Minnesota, including the western counties of the Twin Cities metro. Forecasters say strong northwesterly winds could create whiteout conditions. Those planning last-minute holiday shopping or errands should save it for later this week. Travel...
    DENVER (CBS4) – Amidst a pandemic, a number of Denver metro area residents who buy their health insurance through the state marketplace, Connect for Health Colorado, will have to look for new doctors heading into 2021. That’s because Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield and UCHealth were unable to reach a contractual agreement regarding individual health insurance plans for the Denver metro area. (credit: CBS) For those plans, Anthem will now contract with HCA HealthONE, and UCHealth providers will no longer be in network starting in January. Before this change, Anthem was the only company on the state marketplace to sell a plan for people living in and around Denver where UCHealth was in network, the Colorado Division of Insurance confirmed. Residents of other parts of the state can still buy plans with Anthem where UCHealth is in network. “It feels like if they can come to an agreement for...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s looking more and more likely that residents in the Twin Cities metro will enjoy a white Christmas this year. Meteorologist Riley O’Connor says weather models are predicting that a winter storm Wednesday will drop between 2-4 inches of snow on the metro area. At least one model shows the Twin Cities getting around a half-foot of accumulation. Will this snow be enough for a white Christmas? According to the technical definition, there needs to be at least 1 inch of snow on the ground at 7 a.m. Christmas morning. Judging by the current forecast, that’s well within reach for the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota. As for timing, expect the storm system to push into Minnesota from the Dakotas in the early morning hours and arrive in the metro around noontime. Due to lingering mild air, a mix of rain and snow could...

    Workers grow accustomed to being home Since March, there have been plenty of seats on the rush-hour trains to and from Grand Central and Beacon, Cold Spring and Garrison.  Last year, Metro-North recorded 1.84 million round trips from Beacon, 382,220 from Cold Spring and 220,722 from Garrison. A month into the COVID-19 shutdown in April, those numbers had fallen by 98 percent.

As of Thursday, 1,730 metro residents have died in the pandemic, while 571 in Greater Minnesota have died of COVID-19.  But that picture has changed lately.

    Winter is fast approaching, and the City of Denver and service providers still have not established the first safe-camping site for those experiencing homelessness. Concerned over the slowdown of the Safe Outdoor Spaces program, four neighborhood organizations recently sent a letter to Mayor Michael Hancock and Denver City Council with their ideas for how to push the safe-camping concept into reality.

    Early on October 16, a woman was organizing her belongings on the steps of the Greek Amphitheater of Civic Center Park. She was not alone. Over a hundred people were thawing in the sun after a night outside in freezing temperatures, offering a striking backdrop to Denver’s Race and Homelessness Vigil, which was just starting its third day. Across the painted street with its sapling barriers, an attentive group had gathered in front of the Denver City & County Building, listening to speakers, contributing to food drives, and passing out supplies. The vigil is slated to last just under four days: 98 hours, or 5,256 minutes — representing the 5,256 BIPOC who were counted as homeless in a recent survey.Related Stories Racial Inequity Extends to Homelessness, New Report Says Denver City Council Starts Chipping Away at Remnants of Old Zoning Code Homeless Camps in Central Denver Are Growing, but...

    The other day, I was in a metro area Dollar Tree to stock up on Smarties (because, obviously, Smarties are good), when I saw him: the one guy in the store without a mask. The modest-sized outlet was fairly crowded — around fifteen to twenty customers and three employees desperately trying to handle the rush.
