    Alex Albon announced himself on the grid when he drove from P17 to P5 in his first race at the Belgian Grand Prix in 2019. He replaced Pierre Gasly after the latter struggled to keep the same pace as Max Verstappen in his RB15. But things did not end well for the Thai driver. He impressed the Milton Keynes team enough to claim a one-year contract in 2020. However, Albon had an unspectacular season that year. As a result, he was demoted as replacement driver and Sergio Perez replaced him in the team. The Thai driver explained in a public statement that the turn of events was hurtful. In a recent interview, he vowed that he will come back to Formula 1 again.

    Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. The scandal-plagued saboteur heading up the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, is getting grilled by the the House Oversight and Reform Committee Wednesday along with Postal Service Board of Governors Chair Ron Bloom. Reportedly, the chair of the committee, Rep. Carolyn Maloney, is considering not pushing for the ouster of the one-time major donor to Donald Trump who secured the position after donating more than $600,000 to Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee. Instead, Democratic sources to CNN say, Maloney "is working behind the scenes with DeJoy on a potential reform bill that has eluded Congress for more than 14 years, according to multiple Democratic sources." Her goal is to get his backing on a major reform bill for the Postal Service in the hope that his support will help with Senate Republicans. That seems to be a questionable strategy since there is...
    Geneva — The United States is seeking election to the United Nations Human Rights Council three years after former president Donald Trump's administration withdrew, the U.S. top diplomat told the rights body on Wednesday. "I'm pleased to announce the United States will seek election to the Human Rights Council for the 2022-24 term," Secretary of State Antony Blinken told the council in a video message. "We humbly ask for the support of all U.N. member states in our bid to return to a seat in this body." The United States announced earlier this month that it would re-engage with the 47-member council after Trump's administration pulled the country out in June 2018. He complained about its "unrelenting bias" against Israel and the "hypocrisy" of allowing rights-abusing nations a seat at the table. The U.S. departure left a void that China and others have been eager to...
    Taijuan Walker is taking a back seat on his new team — to Mr. Met. A day after the Mets finalized his $23 million, three-year contract, Walker said he was aced out of his preferred jersey number by the rotund mascot with the baseball-shaped head. "I was 44 growing up, and I finally got it with the Mariners in 2016," Walker said Tuesday. "And then I ended up getting traded at the end of the year, and when I got traded to the Diamondbacks, Paul Goldschmidt was No. 44. So I was, OK, I'm never going to get that again."

    The Disney Plus original movie Flora & Ulysses is a story about a broken family learning to understand each other again. But that isn’t what the movie’s trailer promised: it focuses almost entirely on the shenanigans of a superpowered squirrel. That squirrel doesn’t end up commanding as much of the movie as the trailers suggest. In fact, if Flora & Ulysses were lighter on the squirrel antics, the family comedy from director Lena Khan (Tiger Hunter) and screenwriter Brad Copeland (Arrested Development) actually might work better. The heart of the film is 10-year-old self-proclaimed cynic Flora (Matilda Lawler), who’s caught up in her parents’ financial and marital problems, and just trying to make sense of the world. The core of Flora & Ulysses is a sweet family story, bolstered by Lawler’s sharp performance. But it gets bogged down by animal-chase capers and metatextual references to Disney properties. Still, it’s...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., let Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., have it late Saturday afternoon. Minutes before, McConnell voted to acquit former President Trump in his second impeachment trial. Yet the Kentucky Republican immediately seized the floor and railed against Mr. Trump. It was McConnell’s second speech where he shredded the President’s conduct in the months leading up to the riot. And, this marked McConnell’s fourth address where he punctured conspiracy theories and tripe about a stolen election. Pelosi struggled to square McConnell’s divergent positions. MCCONNELL SILENT IN AFTERMATH OF TRUMP BROADSIDE AS EX-PRESIDENT THREATENS TO GET INVOLVED IN GOP PRIMARIES "He was hedging all over the place," fumed Pelosi. "It was a very disingenuous speech." She argued McConnell "tried to have it every which way." In fact, Pelosi said she wouldn’t have appeared at a news conference with House impeachment managers late Saturday had it not been...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A baby boy fell out of the backseat of a fast-moving car in the middle of a busy South Sacramento intersection – and those tense moments caught on surveillance video. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is now warning parents to make sure seat belts are being used when they should be and doors are properly secured. “Not only is it state law, but that’s the most precious cargo you can have in the backseat of your vehicle,” said Officer Jim Young with South Sacramento CHP. The boy, 2, survived with minor scrapes and bruises, after falling out of the back of his mom’s car over the weekend. Video shows a black Hyundai Tuscan quickly making a left turn in the area. The child quickly fell out of the back door and to the ground in the middle of the intersection. Within seconds, the video shows the flashing...

    Celeste Bright took to Instagram on Thursday morning with a suggestive share that thrilled her 745,000 followers. The stunning blonde model displayed a commanding attitude from the driver’s seat of a gorgeous sport utility vehicle, while wearing a teensy, revealing outfit that left fans wanting more. It took only four hours for the post to rack up over 12,000 likes. Celeste wore a white, off-the-shoulder bandeau with long, billowing sleeves and a feminine ruffle around the top. The fabric was seemingly loosely woven with a fine thread through which the deep bronzed shade of her tan showed. She paired the skimpy shirt with a minuscule skirt featuring a purple-and-turquoise tie-dye pattern printed with the outlines of a few large black butterflies. It had a high side slit that exposed her thigh all the way to her hip and was short enough to leave a bit of her rounded backside visible...
    (CNN)Oregon police are searching for a man who stole a car Saturday morning without knowing a child was in the backseat and came back to lecture the victim of the car theft for leaving her child unattended.When the suspect saw the child, he returned to the mother and reprimanded her, threatened to call the police on her and then drove away in her car, Beaverton Police Spokesman Officer Matt Henderson told CNN.

    A driver who falsely claimed to be a Paterson public school counselor was caught carrying a loaded gun and a machete after parking illegally, city authorities said. Detectives noticed the improperly parked Chevy Impala with an expired license plate number outside a soul food restaurant at 10th Avenue and 23rd Street shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday, Police Director Jerry Speziale said. Its headlights and tail lights were on and the windows were heavily tinted, making it difficult to determine whether anyone was inside, he said. The driver, 30-year-old Malik Colon, lowered the driver’s side window but not the passenger window, Speziale said. After smelling raw pot, Detective Ferdi Abedinoski asked Colon for his driver’s license. He gave the detective work credentials identifying him as a counselor at K-4 Public School #19 instead, Speziale said. Colon doesn't work for the district, however, spokesman Paul Brubaker said.

    CASTRO VALLEY — A man has been arrested for allegedly shooting the driver of a vehicle he was a passenger in Tuesday on Interstate 580, authorities said. The 23-year-old Oakland man, who the California Highway Patrol said admitted his involvement in the shooting, posted bail after his arrest on suspicion of assault with a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon, authorities said. The CHP said in a release the shooting happened about 12:40 p.m. Tuesday on westbound Interstate 580 west of 150th Avenue. Officers initially responded to a call for service and found three people inside the vehicle, including the driver, who had sustained a gunshot wound to his back. He was taken to a hospital where he was initially in critical condition. An update on his condition was not available Thursday. The CHP said the 23-year-old man was one of two passengers in the vehicle but did not say...
    The Aloha State went for Joe Biden 64-34 after backing Hillary Clinton 62-30, which actually made Hawaii the state where Donald Trump’s margin improved the most compared to four years earlier. That shift didn’t matter much in either of the state’s very blue congressional districts, though, and Biden carried them each 64-34. The seats voted almost identically in 2016 as well, with Clinton winning the 1st 63-31 and the 2nd 61-30, respectively. A bipartisan commission will draw new lines next year, though it would be a surprise if the boundaries changed much. (Click here for a larger version of our map.) Despite both Democratic presidential candidates’ wide victories, it wasn’t that long ago that the 1st District, which includes most of Honolulu, was a major battleground. Republican Charles Djou won the seat in a 2010 special election with just 40% of the vote thanks to a state law that required...
    JENNINGS, Mo. (AP) — A St. Louis County woman has been sentenced to four years of probation in the death of her 2-year-old son. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 27-year-old Ebony Roby of Pine Lawn pleaded guilty Wednesday and was sentenced immediately after the plea. Elijah Roby died Jan. 18, 2019, after being hit by a car on Jennings Station Road. Police say the boy was in the back seat unrestrained as his mother drove at “excessive speeds,” causing him to fall out of the car, where he was hit by another vehicle. Police say Ebony Roby picked up Elijah and put him back in the car before driving to a gas station and calling 911. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. Roby's lawyer, Raphael Morris, said she had fastened a seat belt over Elijah without a child safety seat, but the boy unbuckled it and either opened...
    The only Democratic candidate to flip a House seat in 2020 said one thing is key to capturing Georgia's two Senate seats in the upcoming runoff elections: getting voters to the polls. Representative-elect Carolyn Bourdeaux said Thursday that voters are excited about the upcoming election, "and these runoffs are really about turnout," she told CBSN anchor Tanya Rivero.  Republican  is facing off against Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler is up against Democrat Raphael Warnock in the January 5 runoffs. President Trump and President-elect Joe Biden are both campaigning in the state for their respective candidates.  Bourdeaux said her campaign's outreach to voters and her focus on the coronavirus pandemic and getting children back to school helped give her an edge over her Republican opponent Rich McMormick.  "About 30% of those voting in 2020 did not vote in 2016," the Georgia Democrat said of her campaign's voter outreach efforts.  Whether...

    There’s nothing like being stuck inside for months on end to make you slowly start to hate everything in your home. My kitchen chair, which had been my seat of choice for working from home, became my most recent point of ire. The sloped back that usually cradled my body has felt unsupportive for months, leaving me to dramatically slump like a child throwing a temper tantrum. I quickly realized I need a solution and reached out to Cushion Lab for some help. You see, I had always meant to get myself a supportive cushion to sit on while I worked. I have terrible posture to begin with, to the point where both my mother and my boyfriend tell me to stand up straight. After I started to realize that working from home was going to be a semi-permanent thing, I knew this was my chance. So, I tried out...
    The 2020 election cycle turned out to be a good one for California Republicans in House races. A very good one. GOP candidates won back four of the seven California House races Democrats flipped in 2018, despite Democratic nominee Joe Biden romping in the state to a 30-point victory over President Trump, on his way to nabbing the White House with 306 Electoral College votes. California GOP Rep. Mike Garcia nailed down the state’s 25th Congressional District weeks after Election Day. Garcia initially won the district last May during a special election to fill the seat vacated by former Democratic Rep. Katie Hill, who left Congress after 10 months following a sex scandal. Hill won the seat in 2018 by a 7-point margin when she defeated two-term Republican incumbent Rep. Steve Knight. Prior to Knight’s tenure, the district was represented by Republican Rep. Buck McKeon for 22 years....

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Matthew Stafford tried to sound upbeat after the Detroit Lions latest debacle, a 20-0 road loss to the Carolina Panthers. “It’s one game,” Stafford said. “It doesn’t define us as an offense, or us as a team.” Or maybe it does. Coming off a promising 30-27 win over the Washington Redskins, the Lions lost a game they had to have to stay in playoff contention — and one that could ultimately lead to costing coach Matt Patricia his job if they don’t find a way to quickly turn things around. The Lions (4-6) managed just 185 yards and were 3 of 14 on third downs, failing to score against a Carolina defense that had allowed its last four opponents to put up a combined 131 points while scoring on 27 of 36 possessions. The Panthers, who had forced only two punts during that four-game span,...
    Delta Air Lines said Wednesday it will continue blocking middle seats through March 30, setting it apart from its largest US rivals under a longer-term strategy to fetch higher passenger revenues. Recent medical research has shown that the risk of contracting the coronavirus on airplanes is very low when passengers wear masks, underpinning other large US airlines’ policies to sell all available seats on their planes. But Delta is betting that people are willing to pay a premium for more space. “Some customers are still learning to live with this virus and desire extra space for their peace of mind,” its chief customer experience officer, Bill Lentsch, said in a statement. The COVID-19 pandemic has unleashed diverging strategies among airlines to coax people to travel again and pave a path back to profitability once the crisis subsides. US airlines have cut their flying capacity by around 50 percent in...

    Efforts to get Judy Shelton confirmed to the Federal Reserve just got a little tougher as one prominent Republican announced his opposition Monday. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said in a statement that he will oppose President Donald Trump's nomination of Shelton as a Fed governor, CNBC's Ylan Mui reported. That brings to three the total of GOP senators against the pick, putting the chamber in a likely 50-50 deadlock. Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah and Susan Collins of Maine are the others. Under a stalemate scenario, Vice President Mike Pence could step in and cast the tiebreaking vote. Shelton's nomination has been controversial from the beginning. Democratic senators grilled her over her past support of the gold standard and questions over whether the Fed should operate without political pressure. It is the latter issue of Fed independence that Alexander cited, saying Shelton does not back the concept "as much as...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Republican Michelle Steel defeated first-term Rep. Harley Rouda on Tuesday in a Southern California district, only the second time in more than two decades that a GOP candidate in the state has defeated an incumbent Democrat. Rouda captured Orange County’s 48th District in 2018 from longtime Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, part of a Democratic sweep of seven House seats in California that year. Steel said the vote this year showed the American dream “is alive and well in Orange County.” She vowed to fight for lower taxes, small businesses and their workers, and to defeat the coronavirus. “I stand ready to work with both parties,” she said in a statement. Steel joins Washington state’s Marilyn Strickland as the first Korean American women elected to Congress.

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — Former California Republican U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa was victorious Saturday in his race to return to Congress where he once headed the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and became a GOP favorite for launching a string of investigations of the Obama administration.  The former nine-term congressman and ardent supporter of President Donald Trump trailed early in the San Diego-area 50th District. But as more votes were counted after Election Day, he overtook Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar. The latest vote count update gave him about 54% of the votes and a 23,000-vote lead. Issa already had declared victory in a statement posted to social media Friday night.  "Whether you supported me in this election or not, I will work tirelessly in Congress for all who call the 50th District their home, for The State of California which I love so much, and for our great country,"...
    Many Connecticut businesses will step backward due to mounting COVID-19 cases in the state, reverting from Phase 3 to Phase 2 reopening guidelines per an order issued by Governor Ned Lamont.  The changes go into effect Friday, Nov. 6. A month after loosening COVID-19 restrictions on restaurants and event venues, Lamont tightened restrictions on certain businesses in an executive order issued on Monday, Nov. 2. Since Oct. 8, restaurants have been allowed to seat 75 percent of their building's capacity. Now, they will only be permitted to allow 50 percent and must halt in-house dining by 9:30 p.m. (delivery and take out services can still continue after curfew). No more than eight diners will be permitted to sit at a restaurant table at one time, per Phase 2 guidelines.  Hair and nail salons, designated as "personal services" per the state's Department of Economic and Community Development's Coronavirus Business recovery plan,...
    By TODD RICHMOND, Associated Press MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Democrats narrowly thwarted a Republican attempt to build legislative supermajorities that would have allowed the GOP to bypass Gov. Tony Evers' vetoes and advance their agenda at will. Heading into Tuesday's elections, Republicans controlled the Assembly 63-34 and the Senate 18-13 with two vacancies in each chamber. With their majorities secure, the GOP was looking to add three seats in the Assembly and three in the Senate. That would give them the two-thirds majority in each chamber that they'd need to override the Democratic governor's vetoes. With Evers out of the equation, Republicans would be able to write the state budget to their liking. They also would be able to redraw the state's electoral boundaries next year so that the GOP would maintain its legislative majorities for the next decade. Democrats' only recourse would be a lawsuit. Republicans set their...

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Republican state Sen. Stephanie Bice has defeated U.S. Rep. Kendra Horn and won back the only Democratic-held seat in Oklahoma’s congressional delegation. Bice, 46, earned a reputation as a political moderate in her two terms in the Senate, writing a series of bills to help overhaul the state’s antiquated alcohol laws and inviting a Hindu leader to deliver a prayer after the Legislature faced criticism for its lack of religious diversity. Horn, 44, narrowly won the Oklahoma City-area House seat in 2018 in a district that President Donald Trump had won two years earlier by nearly 14 points. Horn tapped into a network of enthusiastic women and young people in increasingly diverse Oklahoma City and pulled off one of the midterm elections’ biggest upsets. But Republicans outnumber Democrats in the district, which includes several traditionally conservative suburbs and two rural counties. Before Horn’s election, it...
    Republican Nancy Mace has defeated incumbent U.S. Rep. Joe Cunningham, dealing a blow to the gains South Carolina Democrats made two years ago. Mace, a member of the state House, beat Cunningham in a seat Republicans loudly announced they were determined to flip back days after the Democrat’s win in 2018. She will be only the second woman to serve in the U.S. House from South Carolina. Mace got support from President Donald Trump on Twitter and once worked on the president’s campaign. But, while trying to link Cunningham to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Mace stayed fairly quiet about Trump’s support. Anger about the president helped Cunningham make his bipartisan push to win in 2018. Mace is the first woman to graduate from The Citadel. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

But, while trying to link Cunningham to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Mace stayed fairly quiet about Trump’s support. Anger about the president helped Cunningham make his bipartisan push to win in 2018. Mace is the first woman to graduate from The Citadel. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

            by Thomas Catenacci  Former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville defeated Alabama Sen. Doug Jones, The Associated Press reported, flipping a key seat in the battle for control of the Senate. Tommy Tuberville was declared the winner almost immediately after Alabama’s polls closed Tuesday night, according to The Associated Press. Coming into the night, Tuberville had been the heavy favorite to win the race with FiveThirtyEight giving him an 87% chance of flipping the seat. Tuberville’s campaign reportedly told NBC affiliate WPMI-TV Tuesday that they were confident their watch party would turn into a victory party Tuesday evening. In the final days of the campaign, Jones criticized both Tuberville and the polls, which predicted he would lose, according to AL.com. “For God’s sakes … don’t pay attention to these people who blow into these things, they don’t know what is going on the ground,” Jones said on...
    Things took a turn for the worse for Red Bull at Sunday’s Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. After star driver Max Verstappen suffered a tire blowout leading in P2, the onus was on Alex Albon to bring home some points. However, he failed to perform yet again. Replays showed that having conceded to Perez in the overtake move, Albon hit the throttle too hard, and had a lock-up in a crucial area of the track. In doing so, he slipped all the way down to P15. F1 pundit Paul di Resta believes that although he has time until the end of the season, his efforts would come a bit too late for Red Bull’s liking. According to him, this writing may already be on the wall for Albon. No way back for Alex Albon, says di Resta Until a month back or so, Albon looked to be a certainty in the...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York’s new seat belt law went into effect Sunday. The law, signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in August, requires everyone 16 and older to wear a seat belt when riding in the back seat. It apples to personal cars, as well as taxis and ride hailing services like Uber and Lyft. Anyone younger than 16 was already required by law to buckle up. Back seat passengers caught without a seat belt can be tagged with a $50 fine. The driver could be fined, too. MORE: Cuomo Signs New Law Requiring All Passengers Age 16 And Up To Wear A Seat Belt Gov. Cuomo’s office said 30% of highway deaths in New York are occupants unrestrained by a seat belt. Studies have shown 90% of adults buckle up in the front seat, while only 76% do in the back, and even fewer wear seat belts in...
    The hot car death of a Miami police officer's wife has been ruled accidental by the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner's Office.  Clara Paulino, 56, died of heat stroke inside her husband's Ford Explorer patrol car on the afternoon of August 21 when temperatures reached a sweltering 90 degrees Fahrenheit. She got trapped in the back seat of Officer Aristides Paulino's work SUV for hours outside their home in Miami Shores while he slept following a midnight shift at work.  Although the mother suffered from diabetes and thyroid disease, heat stroke was noted as the cause of death, the Miami Herald reported.

    Trump and McConnell won't let this happen. It's been 163 days since the House passed the $3 trillion HEROES Act, and 25 days since the House passed their compromise $2.2 trillion bill, both of which Mitch McConnell has refused to take up. It is eight days until the election and Republicans are planning their next Supreme Court superspreader party while COVID-19 is spreading faster and further than ever, and not just among White House staff. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Sec. Steven Mnuchin are still slogging away at negotiations for the next relief bill, with Mnuchin expected to respond to the "list of concerns" Pelosi said she gave him on Friday. "My understanding is he will be reviewing that over the weekend and we will have some answers on Monday," she told CNN Sunday. White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told CNN Sunday, "We continue to make offer after offer...
    When President Donald Trump announced his intention to run for president in 2016, he pledged to build a wall on the southern border that Mexico would pay for. He ran on that promise, positioning it so effectively at the center of his campaign that chants of "build the wall" quickly became familiar refrains at his rallies. In 2018, before the midterm elections in which Democrats ultimately took back control of the House, Trump drummed up fears about a "caravan" of migrants walking through Mexico toward what he characterized as an eventual "invasion" of the U.S. And as president, his administration has taken more than 400 executive actions that have dismantled and dramatically reshaped the current immigration system. Yet immigration has been little more than a footnote this campaign season.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Are you taking public transportation or ride hailing services during the pandemic? There are ways to minimize your risk with a few safety steps that includes both drivers and passengers. “There you have the driver, who’s an unknown quantity,” says Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University. “But of course, the big answer to that is wear your mask.” Masks are mandatory for drivers and riders using Lyft and Uber. Lyft instituted a health safety program, requiring everyone to agree to ride only if symptom free, to keep vehicles clean, ride in the back seat, and open windows when possible. The company is also providing partition shields to frequent drivers. Joe Allen directs the Healthy Buildings Program at Harvard University. He has studied the difference open windows can make. “If someone’s sick in the car, coughing or sneezing, and shedding virus, just cracking...
    Leftists continue to lose their minds — or believe they can get away with blatant violence — in public places full of surveillance cameras. What are the details? Police in Fall River, Massachusetts, said a mother was driving with her 11-year-old daughter in the area of South Main and Hall streets last week when two women in another vehicle apparently didn't take too kindly to the mom's flags supporting President Donald Trump that were flying off both sides of her SUV, WHDH-TV reported. Police provided the station with surveillance video showing the initial part of the confrontation, as the Trump supporter's vehicle is within the yellow oval on the left side of the screen while an arrow points at the suspects seated in a vehicle on the right side of the screen: Image source: WHDH-TV video screenshot The women pulled up to...
    A Long Island man was arrested after stealing a woman's phone, then driving away in her vehicle, leading police on a high-speed chase while another woman yelled for help in the back seat before ultimately crashing into a tree, police said. According to an investigation by Nassau County Police, Mohammed Negadi of Baldwin was a passenger in a vehicle, driving with two female acquaintances who are ages 44 and 47, respectively.  The two women and Negadi exited the vehicle and began struggling over a phone, said police. After wresting the phone in question out of the 47-year-old woman's hand, Negadi jumped into the driver's seat of her vehicle with the 44-year-old woman in the back of the car.  The 47-year-old woman reportedly called 911 to report her car stolen. When police attempted to pull Negadi over, he allegedly refused to stop the stolen vehicle. Through a police chase, the woman...
    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A man has been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a father by his 3-year-old daughter in a car in Memphis, Tennessee. Court documents said Allante Jones, 26, has been charged with reckless homicide and unlawful possession of a weapon in the death of Jerome Smith on Wednesday night. Smith was driving a car with a woman in the front passenger seat and his daughter in the back seat when he stopped to pick up Jones to take him home, police said in an affidavit.

    MIAMI (AP) — The season is trending so badly for Adam Gase that he might hear boos Sunday. The New York Jets coach has been spared at home games because his winless team isn’t admitting fans during the coronavirus pandemic. But the Jets play Sunday at Miami, which is allowing crowds of up to 13,000. A sizable percentage will likely be disgruntled New York fans, and some Dolphins rooters might boo Gase too, just for old times’ sake. He was fired by Miami owner Stephen Ross in 2018 after going 23-26 in three seasons. Gase was quickly hired by the Jets, and he’s on the hot seat again thanks to an 0-5 start, the team’s worst since 1996. Gase’s successor in Miami, Brian Flores, is by contrast riding high thanks to a blowout victory last week at San Francisco that he ranked as his best win yet. The Dolphins are...
    Fotis Dulos may have shaved his own head in an attempt to frame his employee for his wife Jennifer's murder, according to investigators who are still searching for the mother-of-five's body 17 months after she disappeared.  Nancy Grace broke down the bizarre theory in a segment on The Dr Oz Show that aired on Thursday afternoon.  Jennifer Dulos, 50, is presumed dead after she vanished on the morning of May 24, 2019, after dropping her five children off at school.  Police believe that her husband Fotis - who was arrested on murder charges last fall and died by suicide in January - attacked her in the garage of their rented home in New Canaan, Connecticut, before he allegedly discarded her body using a red pickup truck he borrowed from his employee Pawel Gumienny.   According to police documents, Fotis had swapped out the backseat of the truck with a seat from...

    CRAMERTON, N.C. (AP) — A woman shot and wounded a man while he was sitting in the back seat of a North Carolina city police cruiser, authorities said. The man was hospitalized but didn't suffer life-threatening wounds, news outlets reported. Gaston County Police Chief Joseph Ramey said Cramerton police were called to an apartment complex around 12:15 p.m. regarding a domestic argument involving two men and a gun. Cramerton Police Chief Brad Adams said officers detained one of the men in the back seat, although he wasn't in custody for a crime. Adams said a woman later stuck a gun through the back seat window and shot the man in the hand and chest. A motive for the shooting wasn't immediately released nor were the names of those involved. Ramey said authorities weren't sure whether the man and woman knew each other. Police said the investigation was ongoing. Copyright 2020...
    Georgia's 6th Congressional District has seen one of the hardest turns left of any House seat during Donald Trump's presidency. Longtime GOP Rep. Tom Price easily won reelection in 2016 before being plucked as Trump's Health and Human Services secretary in what turned out to be a short-term gig. A June 2017 special election to replace Price ended in victory for Republican Karen Handel, a businesswoman who was once the deputy chief of staff to second lady Marilyn Quayle. But Handel's House tenure was short. She lost 18 months later to Democratic challenger and gun control activist Lucy McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis, who at 17 was shot and killed following an argument at a gas station in Florida about loud music. Now, Handel is seeking a rematch in a district that includes many of Atlanta's affluent northern suburbs, once a GOP stronghold. The area was...

    MODESTO (CBS13) — The Modesto Police Department has released 911 calls and body camera video from an in-custody death incident on Sept. 17. In a press release last week, police said a man from Mexico who choked himself with a seatbelt after being detained in the back of a police car died in the hospital. The man, 33-year-old Emilio Villa Mora, was suspected of attempting to enter a home and break into multiple cars.

    DENVER (AP) — An independent municipal panel on Tuesday upheld the termination of a Colorado police officer fired for not assisting a restrained Black woman who begged for help after she became lodged upside down in the back of his patrol car. In a written ruling, Aurora’s civil service commission that Levi Huffine’s “callous and intentional disregard” for Shataeah Kelly’s safety and well-being last year was so egregious that it merited termination despite not having serious disciplinary problems before. “Petitioner’s demonstration of inhumanity to Ms. Kelly will undoubtedly bring the Department into direct disrepute in the eyes of the public as the video of what transpired is viewed by more and more of the public,” the decision said. The department in the city near Denver has already been under scrutiny because of last year’s death of Elijah McClain, a Black man confronted by police after someone reported him as...
    AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – In a unanimous finding, the four members of Aurora’s Civil Service Commission have upheld the firing of Aurora Police Officer Levi Huffine. They said he ‘blatantly disregarded’ the safety and security of a female detainee who was handcuffed and hobbled in the back seat of his patrol car. Levi Huffine (credit: CBS) In a six page ruling released Tuesday afternoon, commission members said Huffine violated department directives during the transport of Shataeah Kelly, 28, on Aug. 27, 2019. “It is simply not acceptable to refuse to believe a detainee who is screaming for help screaming ‘I can’t breathe; my neck is breaking,’ without making any effort to confirm that she is safe,” according to the ruling. “None of the other circumstances testified to by (Huffine), such as rush hour traffic, or obstructions in his vehicle, justified his inaction.” Huffine took Kelly into custody saying she was fighting...
    It was as brutal as it was unprovoked. As Andrea Puerta looked down at her cell phone a fist came crashing into her jaw. Then another. And another. Her attacker paused just long enough for shell-shocked Andrea to glance up at his face for the first time. ‘I’m sorry,’ he said in a calm, icy voice as their eyes met - before tossing Andrea across the train like a rag doll and smashing her head-first into a seat. ‘In that moment I thought this is it, He is telling me this because he is going to kill me,’ Andrea recalls in an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV. ‘The only thing that stopped him is that he didn’t have enough time before the speaker said we were arriving at the next station. It’s a miracle I’m alive.’ Until she hopped on the Metromover, an automated commuter shuttle that circles downtown Miami, everything...
    By COLLEEN SLEVIN, Associated Press DENVER (AP) — An independent panel is considering whether a Colorado police officer should get his job back after being fired for not assisting a Black woman who begged for help after she became lodged upside down in the back of his patrol car. Aurora's civil service commission began its deliberations about the fate of Levi Huffine following Thursday's conclusion of his appeal hearing, which included body camera video of Shataeah Kelly falling off the back seat of the cruiser with her ankles and wrists restrained behind her and attached to a nylon band around her waist. She pleads with Huffine for most of the 20-minute trip to jail, repeatedly saying she can not breathe and that her neck is breaking. Later, she says she cannot believe she is “suffering like this for being Black" and addresses the officer as “master." The commission issues decisions...
    By COLLEEN SLEVIN, Associated Press DENVER (AP) — A Colorado police officer fired for ignoring the cries for help from a Black woman riding in his cruiser upside down while restrained said Thursday he did not know she had fallen off the back seat into that position and, based on his experience, he did not believe she was in trouble. During a civil service commission hearing over whether he should get his job back, former Aurora police officer Levi Huffine said he was sorry for what happened to Shataeah Kelly, whom he arrested on Aug. 27, 2019, after she allegedly refused to stop punching a woman in a park. Huffine said he placed his body camera in the back of the car for a 21-minute drive to jail partly to protect himself from Kelly, who had accused officers of targeting her for her race. Video from his body camera shows...

    When it comes to flaunting her curvy figure on social media, Stassie Karanikolaou is something of an expert. The model grabbed the attention of her 9.3 million Instagram followers on Wednesday when she shared a snap that saw her kicking back in a stylish bikini. Stassie’s swimsuit was a shade of charcoal that popped against her skin. The top was a bandeau style, which she wore low on her breasts. The center was also gathered, highlighting her cleavage. The bottoms had a high-rise style waist with high-cut legs. The brunette beauty was lounging on a white love seat covered with comfortable-looking matching cushions. The furniture was situated outdoors on what appeared to be an covered outdoor patio with a stone floor. Another love seat was positioned close to the one she was relaxing on.

    A 4-year-old girl is dead and her twin sister hospitalized after being struck by separate vehicles in the middle of Interstate 70 near Hagerstown, Maryland, on Monday evening. An initial investigation found that the two girls and their family were traveling westbound on I-70 in the area of Crystal Falls Drive around 7:30 p.m. Monday, when they pulled into the right shoulder for a pit stop so the children could relieve themselves. While their mother was outside the vehicle, their teen cousin left the back seat and ran across both westbound lanes of the highway to the center median, Maryland State Police said in a news release. The twin girls then also left the back seat on the driver’s side and ran toward him. As they crossed the interstate, both were struck by two separate vehicles. One 4-year-old twin died at Meritus Medical Center in Hagerstown, police said. A medevac...
    GLENDALE, Arizona — Catholics eager to participate in public life once faced significant obstacles. In 1928, Democratic presidential nominee Al Smith lost badly amid anti-Catholic political attacks, and in 1960, John F. Kennedy faced some residual prejudice in his successful presidential bid. But that's ancient history. Wednesday's "Evangelicals for Trump" rally drew about 300 people to the Dream City Church in Glendale, Arizona. At the top of their agenda is filling the Supreme Court seat open with the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Chants of "Fill that seat, fill that seat," broke out during remarks by Eric Trump, President Trump's middle son, who promised his father's administration would fight for religious liberty in a second term. "We are going to fill that seat. We are going to fill that seat," the president's son said. "And I promise you my father will pick someone who protects...
    Immediately following the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, blue-check Twitterati swiftly condemned Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, outraged by his commitment to holding a vote on the resulting high court vacancy during an election year. “Hypocrite!” they cried. But the gold medalist of election-year Supreme Court nominations is Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, whose remarkable “triple Lindy” of position changes on the issue puts him in the pantheon of appointment acrobats. VideoIn 2016, Senator McConnell successfully blocked President Obama’s election-year efforts to fill the vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death. In 2020, President Trump and Senator McConnell both announced they would fulfill their constitutional duties by moving the nomination of a successor forward – the very thing Democrats urged in prior years when it suited them.

      (Jim Bourg-Pool/Getty Images) GOP Senate lawmakers Lindsay Graham and Ted Cruz announced they would support President Donald Trump‘s push to fill the Supreme Court vacancy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg a day after her passing. “The two biggest changes regarding the Senate and judicial confirmations that have occurred in the last decade have come from Democrats,” Graham tweeted on Saturday. “Harry Reid changed the rules to allow a simple majority vote for Circuit Court nominees dealing out the minority. Chuck Schumer and his friends in the liberal media conspired to destroy the life of Brett Kavanaugh and hold that Supreme Court seat open.” He added, “In light of these two events, I will support President @realDonaldTrump in any effort to move forward regarding the recent vacancy created by the passing of Justice Ginsburg.” In light of these two events, I will support President @realDonaldTrump in any effort to move...
    IRVINE (CBSLA) – There’s a big race brewing in Orange County for the 45th District seat between freshman Democratic Rep. Katie Porter and her Republican challenger, Mission Viejo City Councilman Greg Raths. Porter has made a name for herself on Capitol Hill with her whiteboard and tough questioning of White House administration officials, like her grilling of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield back in March. Those moments have put the single mother and former UC Irvine law professor on the map and should get her reelected in November, political analysts say. “I would be very surprised if she loses, she’s one of the more high-profile freshman, she’s gained a lot of notoriety questioning of Trump administration officials,” Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson said. The 45th District includes Irvine, Tustin, Laguna Hills and Lake Forest. “That is still a Republican seat in terms of registration,” Loyola...
    Rep. Tom Malinowski, a freshman Democrat, is fending off a tough challenge by a Republican lawmaker from a well-known New Jersey political family in the state's 7th Congressional District. Malinowski won his seat in 2018 after defeating five-term Republican incumbent Rep. Lance Leonard by a 5-point margin. A once-safe Republican district for 38 years, where former Republican Rep. Mike Ferguson defeated his opponent by 15 points in 2004, it became competitive just two years later when he barely eked out a win following election cycle. Leonard won the seat for the GOP by a wide margin again in 2008, but his leads each election cycle began to dwindle until his ultimate loss in 2018 to Malinowski. The Cook Political Report rates the 7th District as an R+3 “lean Democratic” district. President Trump lost the district by 1 point in 2016. New Jersey Republicans now want to reverse...
    The college football hot seat watch looks at Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy who needs a big win in his season debut after a tumultuous offseason. Another week of college football has arrived for everyone to get acclimated to. It may be Week 3, but for some programs, it’s the first game of the season. That means, getting off on the right foot in a thrown-together season is of the utmost importance. When Dave Doeren was hired by NC State, he went 3-9 in his first season in 2013. After that, he never won less than seven games until 2019. After back-to-back, nine-win seasons in 2017 and 2018, the Wolfpack fell flat at 4-and-8 in 2019. For a coach entering his ninth year with the program, this is a pivotal season for Doeren. A winning season would certainly get the Wolfpack back on track. Another losing season would be a sign...
    Archaeologists working on top of Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh have uncovered the remains of an ancient hillfort thought to date back up to 3,000 years ago. The prehistoric walls atop the extinct volcano were built by the Votadini — an Iron-Age Celtic tribe who once lived in southeast Scotland and northeast England. The Votadini were also responsible for the burial site at Traprain Law in East Lothian — which was also thought to have been their capital. Finds from Traprain Law — which include Roman coins from the continent — suggest the Votadini were ultimately Romanized and assimilated into early Scottish culture.  Archaeologists working on top of Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh have uncovered the remains of an ancient hillfort, pictured, thought to date back up to 3,000 years ago The excavation work on Arthur's seat's north face — which presently comprises three trenches — is being conducted by CFA Archaeology in collaboration...

    Getty The Eagles signed CB Craig James to a one-year contract extension through 2021. The Eagles have locked up one promising young cornerback, not exactly a household name. Philadelphia signed Craig James to a one-year deal on Friday worth $1.52 million, with $300,000 in guaranteed money. NFL Network’s Tom Peliserro first reported the move. The 24-year-old saw action in 14 games last year for the Eagles, participating in 237 special teams snaps and 68 defensive snaps. James made one highlight-reel play in 2019 when he read a slant route and tipped Aaron Rodgers’ pass in the air with 28 seconds left in Week 4. The ball landed in Nigel Bradham’s hands to secure a 34-27 win over Green Bay. It was only James’ third defensive snap in Philadelphia. “I’m the guy nobody knows about, just coming into the game,” James said after that game, via NBC Sports Philadelphia....

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – As students get ready to head back to the classroom, a lot of detail is going into how they’ll get there. Paul Davis has been a school bus driver for 15 years, and runs business operations for Park Adam Transportation. His work day will now start with a temperature scan like all of the company’s bus drivers. Park Adam Transportation gets around 3,600 students off to school in St. Louis Park every day, and also contracts with Bloomington and Edina Schools. “The difficult thing for them is the routing and making sure we stay at that 50% capacity on the bus,” Davis said. Upon boarding, students will be offered hand sanitizer and a mask if they don’t have one, and students will board back to front. Then it’s time to find a seat. “We’ve got it set up to get that 50% capacity by either allowing two students...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities taxi driver is recovering after his passengers attacked him from his back seat Tuesday afternoon — and it was all captured on camera. The manager of Blue and White Taxi says one of his drivers was giving a ride near 34th Street and Humboldt Avenue South in Minneapolis. The video shows four people in the back seat suddenly burst through the partition. One starts choking the driver, two others run around to the driver’s door, and the other tries grabbing the camera. The driver appears to hit the gas, and rear-end the car in front of him. The passengers take off, but one comes back and hits the driver in the face. The company’s manager says this is the third time a driver has been attacked in just the last week.

    ATLANTA (AP) — A man's body was found in the back seat of an abandoned pickup truck Tuesday morning, Atlanta police said. Police spokesman Capt. A. B. Jackson said an officer was performing routine patrols when he found a Dodge pickup truck near the roadway in southwest Atlanta, news outlets reported. The officer began preparing impound paperwork but when he approached the vehicle he smelled something odd, Jackson said. When the officer looked inside the vehicle, there was a body on the floor in the back seat. Jackson said the man died a while ago and details surrounding his death were unclear. “The vehicle has mud in the inside and all over it, and the man has been deceased for a minute,” Jackson said. “We are trying to figure out how the vehicle got here.” Investigators said they were reviewing surveillance footage of the area.

    (CNN)Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is back in the hot seat Monday testifying before a congressional committee after the House passed new legislation Saturday to halt service changes to the US Postal Service and provide another $25 billion in funding.DeJoy is expected to face pointed questions from Democrats on the House Oversight Committee about the changes implemented since he took over atop the Postal Service in June, which Democrats charge have led to unacceptable delays and put at risk the Postal Service's handling of mail-in ballots in November.DeJoy testified before the GOP-led Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Friday, where he was pressed by Democrats and Republican alike about delays in the mail that lawmakers have heard about across the country. But he's likely to face a far more hostile reception in the House, where 90 Democrats called for DeJoy's removal last week, including many committee members.Following Friday's hearing,...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston NORTON (CBS) — Normalcy. These days, it seems that’s all anybody wants. That elusive, desperately desired “sense of normalcy.” Understandably so — even if it’s been uttered so many times as we stray farther and farther from its essence that the phrase might have already lost all meaning. Surely, seemingly everything in America right now feels anything but “normal” — in real life, in sports, and everywhere in between. And certainly, nonchalantly standing five feet away from a golfer who generally attracts thousands upon thousands of adoring, raucous fans is decidedly not normal. That’s where I found myself Thursday morning, capitalizing on the unique opportunities of a sports journalist by gaining access to The Northern Trust, which — due to the coronavirus pandemic — is closed to the general public. Though I may not normally cover golf on a regular basis, this was no normal event....
    President Trump Tuesday praised the Republican woman running for the late Rep. Elijah Cummings’ former Baltimore seat as someone who will “bring Baltimore back.” “Kimberly will work with the Trump Administration and we will bring Baltimore back, and fast,” the president said of Kimberly Klacik, 38, who is running against Rep. Kweisi Mfume, 71. Mfume defeated her in April's special election. They will now face each other again in November. “Don’t blow it Baltimore, the Democrats have destroyed your city!” Trump added. Klacik gained attention this week after a campaign ad she posted walking the streets of what she calls the “real” Baltimore: “crumbling infrastructure,” “abandoned homes” and “crime” went viral with hundreds of thousands of views. GOP HOUSE CANDIDATE BEHIND VIRAL BALTIMORE CAMPAIGN AD CALLS ON PARTY TO 'STOP WRITING OFF THE CITIES'  “Do you care about Black lives? The people that run Baltimore don’t,” Klacik says in the video titled...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed new legislation Tuesday requiring all passengers 16 and older to wear a seat belt, including in the back seat. Currently, passengers are only required to wear a seat belt in the in the front passenger seat. Safety experts believe the use of seat belts in the back seat could prevent over two thirds of fatalities and serious injuries resulting from crashes. “We’ve known for decades that seat belts save lives and with this measure we are further strengthening our laws and helping to prevent needless tragedies,” Cuomo said. The new law goes into effect November 1.  
    BOSTON (CBS) — Do you feel slightly better about the Boston Celtics after they absolutely pummeled the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night? Any time a team scores 149 points, even against a team that is currently taking up some bubble space by default, you’re going to feel better about them. The lopsided victory puts the Celtics at 2-2 down in Orlando, and more importantly, it puts them back in the driver’s seat for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference. A speckle of doubt had crept in after Tuesday’s disheartening loss to an undermanned Miami Heat team, but Boston’s lead over Miami is back up to two games thanks to Wednesday night’s bounce back. A two-game lead plus the head-to-head tiebreaker with four games to play (five for Miami) should be enough for Boston to claim that No. 3 seed. After Friday’s tough matchup with the Toronto Raptors, the Celtics...
    Southwest Airlines is scaling back on COVID-19 cleaning measures and will no longer sanitize seat belts in between flights to speed up turnaround time in between trips. Starting August 1 Southwest stopped wiping down arm rests and seat belts as well as areas around occupied seats. However, 'high touch' areas including tray tables and lavatories will be disinfected before each takeoff, the company said Monday. Deep cleanings, which take six to seven hours a plane, will continue overnight. 'As our flight schedule evolves, we are returning to standard turnaround time,' a Southwest Airlines memo to flight attendants obtained by CNN said. The move to cut back on aircraft-cleaning measures was designed to speed up turnaround operations in between flights, which averaged about 47 minutes in March and is now 50 minutes. Southwest Airlines is scaling back on COVID-19 cleaning measures and will no longer sanitize seat belts or arm rests in...
