    A 28-year-old man was slashed in the face during a dispute on a Manhattan train Sunday night, cops said.  The victim was aboard a D train at the West 4th Street-Washington Square station around 7:30 p.m. when he got into an argument with another straphanger — who slashed him across the face, police said.  The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition, and the suspect took off, authorities said. He was still in the wind Monday morning. No information was immediately available about the dispute between the pair. The incident follows at least three subway slashings reported last week.  Most recently, a 30-year-old Brooklyn straphanger was randomly stabbed in the face by a maniac who told his victim, “Why are you following me? You’re going to die today.” The chilling attack happened Saturday morning on the J train in the Kosciuszko Street station in Bushwick, cops said. ...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s hard enough getting the kids to focus on their e-learning; finding a tutor or after-school activity in a pandemic is a whole other challenge. But as CBS 2’s Tim McNicholas reports, one group on the West Side is giving students a way to nail down their studies after school. It’s not easy to get a kid to close out a computer game, but 11-year-old Anthony Williams will do it to talk about Off The Street Club. “There’s no gun violence. It keep us off the street, and it keep us safe,” Anthony said. It’s a place to study, shoot hoops, or relax with some computer games after school. “When I think about the Off The Street Club, I think about safety and hope,” Anthony said. One goal is to give kids a safe space in West Garfield Park, a neighborhood where just last week a teenager...

Support Us The 20th Street Cafe was one of Denver's most underappreciated restaurants before it closed last March in the wake of COVID-related, statewide dining-room shutdowns. Not only did the downtown diner represent the life's work of three generations of the Okuna family — Harry and Tsugi Okuno opened it in 1946 — but it captured a piece of Japanese-American history in both its origins and its menu. But the 20th Street Cafe was more than just a time capsule; it was one of the last downtown eateries where comfort and value superseded trendiness.

    The coronavirus pandemic still presents an ongoing public health crisis both in the United States and globally but one notable impact of the pandemic has been its effect on the American healthcare system and medical infrastructure. Hospitals were initially put under considerable strain following the first wave of infections in the U.S. early this year, according to The Wall Street Journal. Hospital beds in a number of areas were filled up, ventilators were in short supply and there was a lack of research and coordination. Doctors and administrators say they are now more optimistic about how to respond to the coronavirus, The Wall Street Journal reported. Months of responding to the pandemic has given medical experts a better understanding of how to treat patients and supply critical equipment like masks and ventilators.

    Winter is coming. There's no getting around the fact that patio season as we know it will soon come to an end, and with it the opportunity for diners to enjoy the warm weather on expanded restaurant and bar outdoor eating areas, while COVID-related indoor dining capacity remains restricted to 50 percent or up to fifty people (with some exceptions). Coloradans are a hearty bunch, braving the elements at the Beach at Arapahoe Basin for burgers and beers during ski season, dancing the night away at the annual Icelantic Winter on the Rocks at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and tailgating in the most miserable conditions before Broncos games. But what about a romantic dinner for two under the stars in January, or cocktails with friends during an outdoor Sunday brunch when the wind cuts through your sweater quicker than the first Bloody Mary cuts through the haze of your hangover?...
    It wasn't too long ago that Americans generally existed with a live-and-let-live mentality when it came to sociopolitical matters. You know — if one person didn't agree with another person's political candidate of choice, there might have been a heated discussion or two on rare occasions, but things for the most part didn't escalate from there. But now we're in the year 2020, and it's a different America. With the general election just weeks away, more and more leftists have decided that free expression and healthy debate no longer are sufficient. In their place are cancel culture, threats, harassment, property destruction, vandalism, and violence. Such was the case once again Saturday night — this time in Las Vegas. What happened? Supporters of President Donald Trump lined up on a street for a road rally — and just like clockwork, Trump-haters were out in force...

    Although many venues have been shuttered for the past six months over COVID-19, B-Side Live is opening this Friday, October 9, in the former Black Buzzard space in the basement of Oskar Blues at 1624 Market Street. Hayley Steiner, who paired bands with visual artists as founder of the RiNo Showcase, will act as the venue's operator and booking manager. She says her vision for the spot is simple: "Human beings need live music, and even in a time like this, there has to be a safe place for it." In keeping with Colorado state guidelines and local public-health orders, capacity will be limited to fifty people inside the venue at a time. The concerts will be socially distanced, and guests will be required to sit.

    When restaurants were ordered to close to in-house customers last March, some never reopened. Wendell's, a breakfast eatery at 3838 Tennyson Street, was one of them. But rather than completely scrapping the diner, co-founder Kade Gianinetti sold it to new owners, who reopened Wendell's the last week of September. "We first looked at it on May 28, and we loved everything about it," says Casey Keller, who purchased Wendell's with her husband, Roy Benoit. They closed the deal in mid-August and have been working ever since to train new staff, plan the menu and relaunch during the pandemic.

    Colfax Avenue, the country's longest main street that was also the legendary Route 40, has seen a lot of businesses come and go during its lengthy history, and another one just hit a major roadblock: Route 40, the restaurant that replaced the Goods at 2550 East Colfax Avenue, has shut its doors...for now. "It just didn’t make sense to stay open daily with the cold weather coming," says Charlie Woolley, the developer who turned the old Bonfils Theatre into the Lowenstein Complex, which also holds Twist & Shout and a Tattered Cover. "The restaurant will do events and pop-ups to stay in front of their customers." Route 40 just opened at the end of June; it was a revisioning of the Goods, which Mark Whistler had run since 2016. (Before that, the U Baron Group operated The Good Son there; Paul Reilly's Encore was the first restaurant in the space,...

    It might seem a bit early to start thinking about Christmas, but don’t tell that to Jason Minsky, the executive director of Christmas in the Park. San Jose’s beloved holiday tradition — and all the changes being forced upon it by COVID-19 — are about all he’s thinking about right now. Instead of a stroll through downtown’s Plaza de Cesar Chavez, Christmas in the Park will instead be a drive-through event at History Park on Senter Road. And — like the annual Fantasy of Lights show at Vasona Park — you have to reserve a day and time to visit in advance. Tickets went on sale Tuesday. So how much will it cost?

    The FBI has warned Chicago police about a plot by street gangs to shoot any cop on-sight with their weapon drawn and film it.

    VIDEO1:2201:22Jim Cramer: Some hedge funds are being 'overrun' by Robinhood tradersSquawk on the Street The wildly popular Robinhood online financial services startup has lived up to its name as individual investors who use the platform cause problems for big-time hedge funds, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Monday. In particular, he pointed to the enthusiasm surrounding the stocks of Nike and Apple.   "Nike and Apple are two of the greatest performers, in part because there's this short-and-cover, short-and-cover, short-and-cover by people in the hedge fund community who are overrun by 'Robinhooders,'" Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street."

    General Motors CEO Mary Barra speaks to the news media June 12, 2018 in Detroit, Michigan.Bill Pugliano | Getty Images The Detroit automakers' earnings showed they are better prepared and more resilient to weather a crisis than they were a decade ago — even as the coronavirus pandemic still hobbles much of the global auto industry. It's something Wall Street has wanted the companies to prove they were capable of doing since the Great Recession, which forced General Motors and then-Chrysler into government-backed bankruptcies in 2009. But the Detroit automakers didn't receive the respect from investors many thought they deserved after releasing second-quarter earnings last week. Despite GM, Ford Motor and Fiat Chrysler each significantly beating earnings expectations, shares of the companies were down for the week as Wall Street shrugged off the results. The initial cold-shoulder response had analysts who cover the automakers, specifically GM, questioning what more could be done...
    Five men were shot during three separate shootings across London, and in the early hours of Sunday, four men were stabbed during what is believed was a street brawl in High Holborn. In just seven hours between Friday night and Saturday, there were three shootings across London, with gunfire sounding out in Hackney, Croydon, and in Brixton, which reportedly featured a submachine gun.

Police were called a short time later to a south London hospital after two males self-presented with gunshot injuries.” Later in Hackney, two men were allegedly shot at an illegal...
    On a balmy evening in Atwater Village, diners at candlelit tables shared plates of Cuban food and flights of beer, serenaded by an accordion player down the block. The scene was almost romantic, but for one catch: The tables were a few feet from rush-hour traffic zipping past on Glendale Boulevard. “A table in a parking space, I was a little surprised,” utility inspector Luis Castillo said as he and a co-worker ate blackened tilapia and arroz con pollo. “But it’s nice to sit down and eat.” The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped commutes, workplaces and schools. Now, Southern California’s street network, the region’s largest public space, is transforming, too. With COVID-19 cases surging, and indoor dining banned, more than 20 cities have launched programs that allow struggling restaurants to use sidewalks, parking spaces and private lots to serve meals en plein air.

    FAANG stocks displayed at the Nasdaq.Adam Jeffery | CNBC Investors and traders have historically turned to less-risky assets such as U.S. Treasurys to weather market volatility and uncertainty. During the coronavirus pandemic, however, they have turned to unlikely place: tech and software stocks. Shares of Apple, Netflix, Microsoft, and Amazon are all trading at, or near record highs. All four of these stocks are up at least 29% for 2020 and have contributed to the Nasdaq Composite's massive outperformance over the S&P 500 this year. The Nasdaq has surged 17% this year while the S&P 500 remains down over 2% in that time period.  Wall Street flocked into these names because they believe their business models can not only weather this downturn, but thrive in it. This has led major tech and software stocks to seemingly behave like a safe haven Treasury bond, a dynamic that was apparent throughout this...
    In the old normality, many seasonal workers slept on the street. In the new one, too. This is shown by the different organizations that work each season for the rights of temporary workers in the agricultural sector. “Every year, the Segrià region (Lleida) receives about 40,000 people for the campaign to collect the fruit. And every year we have to work with public administrations to try to provide a solution to those who do not have a home to stay in while the campaign lasts, ”he explains to Newtral.es Rafel Allapuz, director of Cáritas Lleida.
