    BERKELEY — When Cal takes the field at Memorial Stadium on Friday for the 123rd Big Game, the Bears won’t display the demeanor of a team that has started the season with two defeats. They’ll do so as a team that achieved something last season that none of their nine predecessors in blue and gold managed: A victory over Stanford. “We have the Axe now, and we’re not going to let that go,” said quarterback Chase Garbers, the hero of last year’s 24-20 win after scrambling 16 yards for the winning touchdown with 1:19 to play at Stanford Stadium.

    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger called out President Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign for continuing to allege that the election was rigged, claiming that the president is now trying to throw him under the bus after the state was called for Joe Biden. “By all accounts, Georgia had a wildly successful and smooth election,” wrote Raffensperger in a Wednesday op-ed for USA Today. “This should be something for Georgians to celebrate, whether their favored presidential candidate won or lost. For those wondering, mine lost — my family voted for him, donated to him, and are now being thrown under the bus by him.” Raffensperger went on to say that in the days after the election, “a losing presidential...

    SAN ANTONIO – Texas lawmakers have begun filing bills for the upcoming legislative session and there are already more than a dozen bills regarding marijuana use and decriminalization. The new bill proposals come off the heels of five more states legalizing marijuana for full medical use or recreational use.

None, for example, engaged in typical campaigning activities or raised significant funds.

    Democratic leaders of the state Senate claimed a major victory Monday saying their party’s candidates have secured a veto-proof majority — potentially giving them more leverage with fellow Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo in crafting the state budget, tax policy and other legislation. Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart Cousins (D-Yonkers) and Deputy Majority Leader Michael Gianaris (D-Astoria) took a victory lap during an Albany press conference. “We know that on election night many people wrote us off, they said it was a big red wave, and they were already predicting our shrinking majority, and as we know the red wave turned out to really be more of a red mirage,” Stewart-Cousins said. Potential clashes with Cuomo include whether or how...

    Counties in Kansas that followed the state's mask mandate earlier this year saw coronavirus cases fall, but those that didn't witnessed infections spiking, a new study finds. In July, Governor Laura Kelly, a Democrat, issued a face covering mandate, but a state law allowed counties to opt out.  For the counties that required masks, a seven-day rolling average of new daily cases per capita saw a decline of six percent. By comparison, the counties that opted out saw a 100 percent increase, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found. It comes as Kansas prepares to launch a media campaign aimed at getting more of its residents to wear masks to curb the spread of the virus.     ...
    The four-person split-party panel who certifies presidential elections in Michigan voted Monday afternoon 3-1 to confirm Joe Biden’s popular vote win in the swing state. The vote is yet another blow to Donald Trump’s pressure campaign to overturn the presidential election, which includes mounting several lawsuits in battleground states like Michigan. The Michigan Board of State Canvassers Vice Chairman Norman Shinkle, a Republican, expressed his objections to certifying Biden’s victory due to irregularities and errors in the voting and tabulation process – and he voted to abstain on Monday. After hearing from clerks and volunteers who worked at and observed ballot tabulation, the four members voted to certify the election. Shinkle’s fellow Republican panel member Aaron Van Langevelde voted to...
    AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine has certified the results of the 2020 election, Secretary of State Matt Dunlap said Monday. Maine is one of two states in the country that apportions single electoral votes for each congressional district in addition to awarding two for the statewide victory. President-elect Joe Biden won the statewide vote and the 1st Congressional District, good for three of the state's four total electoral votes. President Donald Trump won the 2nd Congressional District, which he also carried in 2016. The other state that awards electoral votes by district is Nebraska. Maine is also the only state in the country that uses ranked-choice voting to elect the president. The method didn't come into play this year because...
    The Michigan Board of State Canvassers voted 3-0 to certify the results of its election after weeks of post-election acrimony and attempts to delay the process.

One Republican voted to abstain while the other Republican and both Democrats voted in favor. The board’s certification votes are not typically noteworthy and are more of a formality, although this year the Trump campaign and Republicans have alleged irregularities and election issues that have raised the public profile of the canvassing process.

    Sen. Rob Portman is the latest Republican to urge President Trump to move forward with the White House transition to President-elect Joe Biden. The Ohio Republican said that while he supports Trump's right to pursue litigation on his beliefs, the election had an unfair advantage to Biden. Portman said there's been no proof of widespread fraud, and it's time to start moving forward.

    During Monday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) vowed there will be “no more lockdowns” in his state. As some governors and mayors are increasing restrictions due to spikes in coronavirus cases across the country, Abbott emphasized that the government should not “micromanage the lives of everybody.” He argued that “lockdowns are overvalued” because the virus gets transmitted easily in private gatherings. “Along the course of dealing with the pandemic, we’ve all learned what works and what does not work. And one thing that government does not need to do is to micromanage the lives of everybody,” Abbott advised. “We set broad-based guidelines for people to follow that lead to safe practices without micromanaging it....

    After more than a year of roiling controversies over how to teach ethnic studies in K-12 through college classrooms, discord erupted anew in a debate last week over course content and how to meet legal requirements, with many wondering: Can California get it right this go-round? The state’s top instructional-policy makers for K-12 education painstakingly debated hundreds of changes to a draft model curriculum for ethnic studies Wednesday and Thursday, just months after a stinging veto by Gov. Newsom, who refused to sign a bill requiring ethnic studies in high school without clear course guidelines in place. At the heart of the current tensions is how to create a curriculum that is faithful to the discipline of ethnic studies...
    (CNN)Since Gov. Ron DeSantis reopened Florida in late September, the number of reported Covid-19 cases per week in the state has tripled.On September 25, DeSantis signed an executive order reopening the state, freeing restaurants and bars to operate at 100% capacity. In the week leading up to the order, Florida reported more than 17,000 new cases. In the past 7 days, the state has reported more than 53,000 -- meaning three times more Floridians have tested positive in the past week than in the week before the reopening. As the US grapples with the worst month yet in the pandemic for coronavirus infections and hospitalizations, Florida is nearing 1 million cases. As of Monday morning, the state had reported 938,414...
    A new report finds that Illinois has one of the best lung cancer survival rates in the nation. Data from the annual “State of Lung Cancer” report from the American Lung Association shows the state ranks tenth when it comes to the five-year survival rate of lung cancer patients, with around 25 percent living past that mark. “One factor in that is that we are able to diagnose lung cancer earlier, around stage one, and that helps with the prognosis a lot of times,” said Kristina Hamilton, advocacy director with the American Lung Association of Illinois and Iowa. Digging deeper into the numbers brought both good news and bad news for the state. “Illinois specifically ranked...

In Huntington Beach, a crowd of about 400 – dubbing themselves “Curfew Breakers” – gathered in front of the city’s main pier to protest the curfew that took effect at 10 p.m. By about midnight, the crowd had largely fizzled out.  Further north in Fresno, dozens of people gathered at the River Park Shopping Center to protest Newsom’s orders.

    Between the literal global pandemic and the 2020 presidential election, it’s easy to feel like time is a myth. What month is it? What day? What happened over the summer can feel like a lifetime ago. Still, you might remember when Daily Kos covered the enormous motorcycle rally held in Sturgis, South Dakota back in August. About 460,000 people attended the rally, in spite of the pandemic, and as Daily Kos covered, few masks and many out of towners were involved. Now, a new report from the Centers of Disease Control & Prevention found that at least 86 cases of COVID-19 in Minnesota (which borders South Dakota) have been linked back to the rally. Of those 86 cases, four involved hospitalizations....

    Alaska Democrat Liz Snyder holds a lead over the Republican who was in line to become speaker. The Alaska House of Representatives is currently run by an alliance of Democrats, independents, and breakaway Republicans called the Majority Caucus, but no one knows who will control the 40-member body more than two weeks after Election Day. Republican hardliners won 18 seats, while another three Republican members of Majority Caucus also prevailed. Democrats, meanwhile, won 15 districts, as did three Democratic-aligned independents.

    PHOENIX (AP) — The coronavirus outbreak prompted the Arizona Legislature to cancel statewide standard tests and skip assigning new A-F grades to schools for the 2019-2020 school year. But what about the current school year?

But Bullhead City Elementary School District Superintendent Carolyn Stewart and others hope the state Board of Education will support continuing the suspensions of the testing and grading. “The last thing educators and students need this year is the weight of a grade for their school sites or their districts, particularly when the elements that go...

The lawmakers, Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield, issued a joint statement after flying to Washington to meet with the president – on a day Trump claimed he 'won' the election, despite trailing President-elect Joe Biden by 6 million votes.  But the lawmakers said they have not seen anything that would 'change the outcome' of the race – despite Trump's lawyers repeatedly claiming a 'massive' fraud had occurred. Their statement, however, also included language saying...

In an interview, the irreverent Fetterman said he hadn't known about the provision until told by a reporter Friday.

    U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday visited an Israeli winery in the West Bank, becoming the first secretary of state to ever visit a Jewish settlement in a move that drew Palestinian protesters to demonstrate and throw stones at soldiers outside the winery. The visit was followed by an announcement by Pompeo the U.S. will permit imports from Israeli settlements to be labelled “Made in Israel” or “Product of Israel.” Both moves mark a dramatic departure from U.S. policy, which until the Trump administration designated the West Bank and the Golan Heights as “occupied territories.” In January, Pompeo denounced a longstanding State Department legal opinion declaring Jewish settlements in the West Bank to be a violation of international law as “deeply flawed.” Months earlier,...
