    PLEASANTON, Calif. (KGO) -- Just one day after the Pleasanton Unified School Board voted to return to in-person teaching last Thursday night, parents say some teachers used Zoom time the following morning to try to dissuade their kids from returning to the classroom.In a recording of one Zoom session obtained by ABC7 News, a high school teacher can be heard warning her students about what "in-person" will be like: "I'll have my desk taped off in an area and I can't really leave that area."RELATED: Pleasanton school board votes in favor of transitioning to partial in-person learning amid COVID-19The district says the comments by a few do not reflect the larger effort to re-open in-person learning.The unidentified teachers went on to tell her students, "If you want to go to school for social reasons, recognize that you absolutely will not have that.

    LONDON (AP) — The British government announced a small step out of the nation’s lockdown on Saturday – allowing nursing home residents to have a single friend or family member visit them indoors. Residents and their visitors will be able to hold hands, but not hug. The change takes effect on March 8th. For months, nursing home residents have only been able to see loved ones outdoors or through screens. Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he will announce a “road map” out of lockdown on Monday. The government has stressed that easing restrictions will be slow and cautious. Store reopenings and outdoor socializing are unlikely before April, though children will go back to school from March 8th.

When Darrell Semien’s family went to pick out a plot at Oaklin Springs Cemetery in Oberlin, LA, they were told he could not be buried there. According to the cemetery’s contract, its plots are reserved for whites only, per CBS Lafayette KLFY-TV. “It was just so much a slap in the face, a punch in the gut. It was just belittling him. You know that we can’t bury him because he’s black,” said Karla Semien, Darrell’s widow.

    WASHINGTON -- Joe Biden is moving into the White House, but just because he's president of the United States doesn't mean he's allowed to bring whatever he wants.It is not clear whether the Biden family's moving trucks will be allowed to haul the president's beloved Peloton from his Wilmington, Delaware, home.The standalone bikes typically have video cameras that connect to the internet, which could be one of few minor hiccups.Past presidents' high-tech gadgets have typically required security vetting and retrofitting -- especially when they connect to the internet or cell networks. The Washington Post reported in February 2019 that Trump had a $50,000, room-sized golf simulator installed in the White House -- replacing a less sophisticated simulator installed by President Barack Obama. At the time, the price for the fully set-up Trump simulator from TrackMan, which has golf simulators at multiple Trump properties, started at around $50,000.WATCH: President Biden's full...
    Editor’s note: We endeavor to bring you the top voices on current events representing a range of perspectives. Below is a column arguing that social media companies should not be allowed to ban Trump. You can read a counterpoint here, where Adrian Moore, vice president at Reason Foundation, and Rebecca van Burken, a policy analyst at Reason Foundation, argue that social media companies, as private entities, have the right to ban whomever they choose. Imagine explaining to a pro-life activist that abortion is currently legal in the United States. Silly, right? The pro-life movement is not deluded; it does not argue that Roe vs. Wade is not currently good law. The pro-life movement seeks to change the law: that’s the point. Yet when Big Tech censorship comes up, libertarian tech policy types never tire of pointing out that the First Amendment, broadly speaking, does not constrain private actors. But that’s the beginning...
    Reuters January 9, 2021 0 Comments The United States, its Central American allies and Mexico will not allow a group of migrants that is readying a trip north from Honduras to travel to the U.S. border, a senior U.S. border official said on Friday. Hondurans have taken to WhatsApp and Facebook groups, some of which have thousands of subscribers, to organize another caravan scheduled to leave from the country’s northern city San Pedro Sula on Jan. 15, despite the coronavirus pandemic. “Do not waste your time and money, and do not risk your safety and health,” Mark Morgan, acting commissioner at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said in a statement. “Migrant caravan groups will not be allowed to make their way north in violation of the sovereignty, standing public health orders, and immigration laws of the respective nations throughout the region.” Many Hondurans still live on the streets...
    Demonstrator holding an anti-vaccine placard in east London on in central December 5, 2020.JUSTIN TALLIS | AFP | Getty Images LONDON — A perfect storm is brewing as Covid-19 vaccines start to roll out more widely in countries around the world. While many people can't wait to protect themselves from the virus, some are adamant that they won't get the jab, leaving populations divided into those that have been vaccinated and those that haven't. In the U.K., one in five say they are unlikely to take the vaccine, according to YouGov research published in November, citing a variety of different reasons.  As a result of the differing views, a debate could start to emerge in 2021. Should any restrictions be imposed on people who choose not to get vaccinated given they can catch and spread the virus? It's a tricky subject but governments are already looking at introducing...

    The world is filled with people who love and treat their pets as family. Sadly, however, there are also many people who are not merely unkind to pets, but extremely cruel. Towards the end of November, a business’s ring doorbell video captured a man abusing his dog in a parking lot. The man, now identified as Tzu-Chieh “Jack” Shan, 26, got out of his car and began to whip the dog with his leash, shove the dog against a wall, and beat the dog more, while kneeling on him. The poor pup yelped in pain and cowered during this violence. After the event, police and Regional Animal Services of King County were notified and they began an investigation. They identified Shan using a witness’s video of the license plate and took Shan’s dog in to receive veterinary care and be held through the trial. BPD detectives & Regional Animal...
    Friday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) offered more details about his briefing from the FBI about Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, and his alleged relationship with a Chinese spy. McCarthy said based on the briefing that he and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) participated in, Swalwell should not be serving on the House Intelligence Committee. “I’ve been asking for this briefing since the story broke publicly,” he said. “I was not briefed. That’s when I first learned about it. I had two different FBI briefings scheduled that were canceled on the day. And now it came on Friday, and we were briefed together, Speaker Pelosi and myself for more than an hour. I can’t tell you about what’s in it, but I can tell you this. What I learned today and anyone who was in that room with me would never allow Swalwell...
    Reuters December 2, 2020 0 Comments The Oscars 2021 will not be a virtual event and will be organized traditionally as an “in-person telecast,” according to a report from Variety. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences moved the 73rd Academy Awards ceremony to April 25, 2021, so that theaters would be open again in the spring, which will allow more films to compete in the awards, the report said. “The Oscars in-person telecast will happen,” Variety reported on Tuesday, citing a representative from the Academy. The Academy Awards are traditionally held at the 3,400-seater Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. But because of the coronavirus pandemic, the number of people who will be allowed to attend is unclear. “The Academy has done a walkthrough of the Dolby recently to see all the multiple options,” the report added, citing an awards publicist familiar with the situation.

    LONDON (Reuters) - A British-born woman who went to Syria as a schoolgirl to join Islamic State should not be allowed to return to Britain to challenge the government taking away her citizenship because she poses a security risk, the UK's top court heard on Monday. Shamima Begum, who was born to Bangladeshi parents, left London in 2015 when she was 15 and went to Syria via Turkey with two schoolfriends. In Syria, she married an Islamic State fighter and lived in Raqqa, the capital of the self-declared caliphate, where she remained for four years until she was discovered in a detention camp. She has had three children since leaving Britain, but all the infants have since died. Britain's interior minister stripped her of her British citizenship but in July, the Court of Appeal unanimously agreed Begum, now 21, could only have a fair and effective appeal of that decision...
    The first presidential debate was full of cross talk, incomplete answers and unfinished statements, but President Donald Trump made one thing clear: he wants his backers keeping a close eye on polling places. “I’m urging my supporters to go into the polls and watch very carefully because that’s what has to happen,” he said. More than a week earlier, the president’s son, Donald Trump, Jr. asked in a campaign video for re-election supporters to join the “army for Trump’s election security operation.” “We need you to help us watch them, not just on Election Day, but also during early voting and at the counting boards,” Trump, Jr. said. State laws across the country allow designated poll watchers at voting sites. They are typically appointed by candidates, political parties or political action committees, and their primary purpose “is to ensure that their party has a fair chance of...
    PREM clubs are today poised to agree to non-televised matches being available to all fans. But supporters will have to pay to watch with the matches only available through a special subscription service. 2Manchester United fans will have to form out more money to watch their team on TVCredit: Getty Images - Getty Ever since the Prem’s restart in June, all matches have been available through one of the Prem’s four broadcast partners - Sky, BT, Amazon prime and the BBC. With fans locked out, the clubs felt they had no option to ensure supporters were able to watch their teams in action. But there are concerns that the two main broadcasters’ patience over the loss of their prized exclusivity is not boundless and that there could be a knock-on impact with the companies demanding a further rebate. Prem clubs already face having to pay back £330m over the next...
    Elizabeth Warren warned that Republican’s must not be allowed to “steal a second seat” on the Supreme Court in the process of replacing the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg in an interview with comedian and left-wing activist Billy Eichner. She also added more fuel to speculation that Kamala Harris is the Democratic party’s stealth presidential candidate by emphasizing the vice presidential pick over Joe Biden. “Kamala and Joe have got to win this,” she told Eichner. Billy Eichner hosted the Instagram Live conversation on Monday in which  Sen. Warren (D-MA) discussed a range of subjects, including the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg and what Democrats can do to stop Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s promise of holding a floor vote on President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. Sen. Warren addressed the coming battle over who will succeed Ginsburg, saying voters must not allow Republicans to “steal a second seat” on the Supreme Court — an...

    No campus in Los Angeles County will be allowed to reopen to all K-12 students until at least November, although schools can still offer small in-person classes for students with special needs at no more than 10% of capacity at one time, county Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said Thursday. The news will be a blow to students, parents and educators hoping that progress against the coronavirus might allow for campuses to reopen on a faster tract. However, the small in-person classes for children who need special services, announced last week, could allow at least 200,000 students back to campus across the county. No districts are currently required to offer in-person services to students — and the Los Angeles teachers union is opposed to any campus reopenings at this time, citing safety concerns. Ferrer explained the county’s new policies in a call Thursday with school district leaders. The Times was...
    Spencer Platt/Getty Images The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) is backing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden following President Donald Trump’s attacks on mail-in voting — directly calling out the current administration for failing to “strengthen the agency during this pandemic.” The endorsement follows Trump’s confession that he is withholding funds from the U.S. post office in order to limit mail-in voting for the 2020 election during an interview with Fox Business on Thursday. The statement says that the NALC has decided to endorse Biden and vice president pick Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) after conducting polls and surveys, and following a discussion with the Democratic presidential nominee. “The decision is also partly informed by what we have seen from the current administration with regards to the Postal Service,” the statement added. “In 2018 legislative recommendations from the White House Postal Task Force report called for the revocation of collective bargaining rights by America’s postal unions,...

Now the Football Association have abandoned plans to use the clash between the Premier League champions and FA Cup winners as a test event. The decision is due to other pilot events in sports such as racing, snooker and cricket being cancelled.

    BORIS Johnson has announced sports fans will not be allowed to return to live events over fears of a coronavirus second wave.

    The images coming out of Portland, Oregon in recent days have been disturbing: federal law enforcement agents, wearing military fatigues and driving unmarked vehicles, have detained nonviolent George Floyd protesters — and Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon has described the agents as President Donald “Trump’s secret police.” Much of the criticism of the agents has come from liberal and progressive website, but some conservative outlets are troubled as well, including The Bulwark. And in an article published in The Bulwark on July 20, Carrie Cordero — an intel/security specialist and former attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice — explains why having a “purely domestic security service” in the United States is a terrible idea. “This past week, (Department of Homeland Security) personnel, including officers of the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), were deployed by the acting secretary of Homeland Security to conduct domestic law enforcement activities in Portland,” Cordero...
    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” President Donald Trump called Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden “not competent to be president.” Partial transcript as follows: WALLACE:  Mr. President, you’ll be happy to know that Fox News has a new poll out today and you’re going to be the very first person to hear about it. In the national horse race, Joe Biden leads you by 8 points, 49 percent to 41.  That’s 3, 4 points slimmer than it was a month ago. And on the issues, people trust Biden more to handle the coronavirus by 17 points, on race relations by 21 points, and even on the economy they trust Biden more by 1 point. I understand you still have more than a hundred days to this election, but at this point you’re losing. TRUMP:  First of all, I’m not losing, because those are fake polls....

    House Democrats are getting fed up with Republicans' dangerous pandemic games. At least one House Democrat has had enough with Republicans ignoring mask requirements during House committee hearings. Rep. Jim Clyburn, head of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, has written a letter to ranking Republican Steve Scalise warning him that if committee Republicans continue to show up at hearings without masks, those Republicans will not be recognized to speak during subcommittee meetings. At all. Clyburn was not particularly polite about it, either. In his letter, Clyburn reminds Scalise that it was Scalise who "repeatedly" has wanted in-person hearings and "you assured me that this could be done safely." But when "every single Republican Member of the Subcommittee refused to comply" with congressional mask rules, Clyburn was fed up. "I was true to my word—I held this hearing in person, as you requested. Unfortunately, the Republican Members’ refusal to...
    By James Frater, Vasco Cotovio and Laura Smith-Spark | CNN Travelers from the United States are “unlikely” to be allowed into the European Union, as ambassadors of the 27 members states have agreed “in principle” to criteria as the bloc begins to open up to international travel, several EU diplomats told CNN on Friday. The agreement is not final, as the ambassadors will need to consult with their respective governments. Under the current criteria — which, among other parameters, takes into account the number of coronavirus cases per 100,000 people in the past 14 days — US travelers would likely be excluded. The development was first reported by The New York Times. The US has the highest number of coronavirus deaths and infections in the world. As of Friday afternoon, at least 2.4 million had been infected in the country and 124,891 people had died, according to the Johns...

    Though New York is in the midst of recovering from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, some businesses will still not be opening up during Phase 4 of reopening. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced this week that shopping malls, gyms, and movie theaters are among the businesses that will not be reopening with regions approaching Phase 4.

    President Trump weighed in on the unrest in Minnesota following the death of George Floyd, saying Friday that “the looters should not be allowed to drown out the voices of so many peaceful protesters.” “The rights of peaceful protesters are very important but we can’t allow the situation to descend further into lawless chaos,” Trump continued. “It is very important, I believe, to the family, to everybody, that the memory of George Floyd be a perfect memory.” The president said his administration is working closely with the Justice Department (DOJ) and speaking with Floyd’s family to investigate the case. “I understand the hurt, I understand the pain. The family of George is entitled to justice and the people of Minnesota are entitled to safety,” Trump added. “It’s a horrible situation, we’ll be reporting back.” Trump’s remarks come after he sought to clarify what he meant in a tweet Thursday night about...
