    MSNBC drew in its second-largest prime time audience in network history on Thursday night behind Jan. 6, 2021, excluding major election events like presidential debates, conventions, and election night coverage. The network won across prime time as it brought in some 4.88 million total viewers from 8 to 10 p.m. during the prime time hearing of the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

    Leftists have been up in arms about a Supreme Court decision that enables states to ban abortions — in a piece posted last month, Pieklo described the high court's decision as "catastrophic for millions of people in this country, for the rule of law, and our democracy." "We're officially living in a post-Roe world," Pieklo wrote. "Knowing this day would come doesn’t make the reality any easier to process. It’s tough. It’s dark. But as trite as this may sound so soon after such a devastating loss of autonomy and humanity at the Supreme Court, the fight is far from over—and I, for one, am going nowhere until it’s finished."
    Dima looks at me and grins. He points to the sky and raises his finger to lips. ‘Shhh,’ he whispers. Any movement or sound will send Russian drones whirring toward us. Far above, they patrol the skies, searching for their targets and waiting to drop their lethal payloads. We’re in the Donbas in Eastern Ukraine, in a hidden army base on the front line of the war with Vladimir Putin’s troops. Ukrainian soldiers with decades-old Kalashnikovs have dug into trenches while the drones of both sides buzz overhead. Inside the base, electric light is banned and people use their phones for illumination. Men are prohibited from mingling outside: even a cigarette lighter could be enough to alert a drone strike. For Putin’s purposes, a stalemate is better than a loss. And that is why we must not let him win. Because be in no doubt: if we look away, he will triumph by dint of our inertia — and he will not stop at Ukraine And all day long, Ukraine’s soldiers go out on missions — and not all of...

    New York (CNN Business)Recession fears may be raging on Wall Street and Main Street, but there are still some potentially good signs for the economy emanating from Corporate America's corner offices. Despite worries about soaring inflation and higher interest rates, big businesses are still in pretty solid financial shape. Corporate bankruptcy filings in May were down from last year's pace, according to data from S&P. In fact, filings through the first five months of this year are at their lowest level since 2010. Of course, companies are still feeling a pinch from inflation. Bond yields and the price of oil and other commodities have surged. There's more pressure to pay workers higher wages, too. But businesses aren't crumbling under this strain."The era of free money is starting to evaporate, but that doesn't mean were going into an era of high interest rates. Businesses still see a good economic picture even though there is this backdrop of negative news," said Frank Sorrentino, CEO of ConnectOne Bank (CNOB), a New Jersey-based lender."Unlike in 2008 and prior recessions, there is still a strong...
    Donald Trump has paid the $110,000 he owed but produced only part of the documentation necessary to lift the order holding him in contempt of court just ahead of a Friday deadline, a spokesperson for the New York attorney general said.  Trump was slapped with a $10,000 per day fine last month as part of a contempt order for his lack of cooperation with Letitia James' probe into the finances of the Trump Organization. Judge Arthur Engeron said at the time it was not clear Trump had conducted adequate searches for the documents requested, after his attorneys said they no longer had them.  Engeron ruled that in order to lift the contempt finding, Trump needed to pay the fine. He also needed to allow third-party firm Haystack to conduct a review of the Trump Org's records for relevant documents and that Trump employees needed to submit affidavits of the organization's document retention and destruction policy.  The Haystack review is complete and responsive documents have been handed over but Trump still has yet to comply with the third condition as...

    LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- It's not a "surge" by any means, but COVID-19 transmission continues to be widespread across Los Angeles County, the public health director said Thursday, noting increases in key metrics used to track the virus and warning of the suddenly increased presence of yet another even more communicable variant.In pure numbers, Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer reported another 2,335 COVID infections in the county on Thursday. The daily average number of new cases logged by the county over the past seven days rose to 1,764, up from 1,261 the previous week, she said.The daily average case number is roughly triple the number it was a month ago, Ferrer said.She also noted small but steady increases over the past week in the number of COVID-positive people in county hospitals. The number increased to 249 on Thursday, up from 235 on Wednesday. The number of those patients being treated in intensive care was 30, up from 28 a day earlier.Ferrer noted that those numbers are still relatively low when compared to the winter surge numbers that topped 8,000.

    DUBLIN (KPIX 5) – As interest rates creep up, many thought it would mean some potential home buyers would back off. So far, that doesn’t seem to be the case in the Bay Area’s red-hot market. March was another record month for California and Bay Area real estate. The median single-family home price in California, in March, was $849,080, according to the California Association of Realtors. READ MORE: Notorious Pedophile Priest Stephen Kiesle Charged In Fatal DUI Crash In Walnut CreekHere were the median sale prices for single-family homes in the nine Bay Area counties: • Alameda: $1,430,000 • Contra Costa: $965,900 • Marin: $1,737,500 • Napa: $998,000 • San Francisco: $2,060,000 • San Mateo: $2,280,000 • Santa Clara: $1,950,000 • Sonoma: $833,750 • Solano: $604,000 “The headlines are screaming historically high sales prices. The finer print is, people still want to buy homes,” said David Stark, with the Bay East Association of Realtors. “If you look at how long a home was on the market, it’s at historically low levels, which tells us that buyers are not only willing...
    DENVER (CBS4) – The Justice Department has filed an appeal that seeks to reverse a judge’s recent ruling that ended the nation’s mask mandate on public transit. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had asked the department to appeal the decision, issuing a statement Wednesday that the mandate “remains necessary for the public health.” (credit: CBS) Here in Colorado, the COVID testing positivity rate is on the rise again, nearing 5%. As fewer public places and agencies are requiring masks in our state as well, Dr. Reggie Washington says we’re not completely out of the woods yet. “Omicron is still in the environment, in the community and it’s not going away,” Washington said. He also told CBS4’s Mekialaya White masking is only one of the tools that is being used to keep the pandemic in check. (credit: CBS) “Socially distancing, not exposing yourself to someone who is sick… and certainly being vaccinated, those are very important still.” Washington says, if it’s recommended for you, get a booster shot. “The CDC recommends anyone over the age...

    What if Merritt Wever had sex with an anthropomorphized duck? What if Betty Gilpin was a real-life Barbie doll? What if Nicole Kidman swallowed photographs? What if Cynthia Erivo was slowly being eaten alive? What if Alison Brie was a mystery-solving ghost? Apple TV+’s new anthology series Roar, which premieres today, takes on the gratuitous task of depicting these bizarre, Black Mirror-esque scenarios, plus more, in an attempt to illuminate the anxieties, systemic hurdles and occasional pleasures of being a woman in patriarchal society. It marks the first project from creative duo Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch since the egregious cancellation of their exceptional Netflix series GLOW in 2020 and includes a few of the show’s main cast members. Like Cecelia Ahern’s short-story collection from which the series is adapted, there’s not much of a throughline connecting these feminist tales aside from the show’s magical realism and the broad observation that women experience things. Likewise, the results of these surreal endeavors are extremely unsubtle, kind of cheesy, mostly watchable, and occasionally singular. The 8-episode series is, first and...
    London (CNN Business)Investors are breathing a sigh of relief after regulators in Beijing extended an olive branch to the United States, indicating they could change their policies so that Chinese companies could avoid getting kicked off Wall Street.What's happening: Shares of tech giant Alibaba (BABA) in New York rallied almost 7% on Monday. E-commerce platforms Pinduoduo (PDD) and JD.com (JD) leaped 16% and 7%, respectively.But the celebration may have been a bit premature, as negotiators from the United States and China continue to hammer out the details and tensions between the world's two largest economies simmer beneath the surface. "The policy is still evolving, and there's still a lot of uncertainty," Xiaomeng Lu of the consultancy Eurasia Group told me.Over the weekend, the China Securities Regulatory Commission, the country's top securities watchdog, proposed changing a decade-old rule that forbids Chinese firms from sharing sensitive data and financial information with overseas regulators.Read MoreRemember: US regulators have long complained that they can't access the books of Chinese companies.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A range of economic indicators for San Francisco points to good news and a strong recovery from the effects of the omicron variant of COVID-19, according to a monthly report by the city controller’s office. Good news came in the form of data from March on job creation, tourism, housing, office attendance and among other indicators, new business formation.

Our job creation, tourism, and housing are all moving in the right direction. But they are still well below where we were before the pandemic, and far behind where comparable cities are.” The San Francisco metro area added 12,300 jobs in February, more than half of which was in the leisure and hospitality sector, a sector hit hard by the COVID-19...
    Halfpoint Images | Moment | Getty Images Pet parenthood is getting more expensive, but many owners are still willing to splurge, according to a report from Rover, an online pet marketplace. Rising costs and inflation are a growing concern for Americans, affecting everyday expenses like groceries, gasoline and housing. Pet parents are also feeling the sting, according to the report analyzing data from more than 1,000 U.S. dog owners.  More than 70% of pet parents have spent more on food, treats, toys and veterinary visits, and 73% worry about prices continuing to grow, the report found.

    Roman Abramovich can still scupper the Chelsea sale with sources insisting that he does not want to accept a bid from a country that has sanctioned Russian oligarchs. Abramovich, the Chelsea owner, will be able to influence the club’s sale despite having had his assets seized by the Government, sources have told The Mail on Sunday. He has hired The Raine Group to sell the club and could veto bids from the United States and Britain because both countries have sanctioned oligarchs from his homeland in response to the war on Ukraine. The development means Chelsea could yet end up in administration, as the highest remaining bid from outside the US and Europe is likely to be from the Saudi Media Group, who have reportedly tabled an offer of £2.66bn. But with the Chancellor Rishi Sunak overseeing the process, the Government is unlikely to back a Saudi approach, given the recent backlash against Newcastle United’s sale to an investment fund linked to the Gulf nation’s rulers. US businessman Todd Boehly has teamed up with Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss and British...
    A Russian journalist who hijacked prime-time TV news to denounce the war in Ukraine walked free from court last night – but could still face up to 15 years behind bars. Marina Ovsyannikova, 43, was labelled the 'bravest woman on TV' after she stormed on to the set of state-controlled Channel One waving an anti-war sign on Monday evening. A highly regarded editor at the channel, the mother-of-two held a placard reading 'Stop the war. Don't believe propaganda. They're lying to you' live on air before releasing a pre-recorded video statement calling on ordinary Russians to protest and 'stop the madness'. Miss Ovsyannikova's exceptional act of defiance against Vladimir Putin quickly went viral, winning praise from world leaders and sparking calls for her to be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. But once she was arrested, there were fears she would disappear, as many critics of the Kremlin do. Her lawyer said he could not make contact with the journalist or find her at the notorious police station she was said to be held in, raising concerns for her safety....

    A Ukrainian man stands in the rubble of Zhytomyr, west of Kyiv, on March 02, 2022. As Ukraine moves into Thursday evening, it’s clear that Russia has abandoned any intention to confront the Ukrainian military. Instead, Russian forces are sitting back and bombing civilian population centers. In both Kharkiv and Mariupol, this means firing weapons from across the border in Russia. Zero miles from home is apparently a workable distance when it comes to keeping Russian weapons functional and supplied. North of Kyiv, that convoy that looked so fierce (and bizarre) when it left Belarus, is still strung out along miles or road, suffering from lack of fuel, lack of food, and attacks by the Ukrainian Air Force. But the original Russian plan to surround Kyiv, march in, and install a puppet regime seems to have been replaced by the “plan” being executed by Russia at all points today: Break things. Kill people. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy gave an estimate on Thursday that over 9,000 Russian soldiers have been killed so far in a week of fighting. Officials elsewhere have...
    TORONTO (AP) — Marie-Philip Poulin isn’t planning on hanging up her skates any time soon. While the captain of Canada’s Olympic champion women’s hockey team is currently taking some much-needed time away from the ice, she has no plans to retire. The 30-year-old forward is even open to the idea of strapping on her gear for the Milano Cortina Games in 2026. “If the body holds on, if I can still keep up with those youngsters, I would love that,” Poulin said in a phone interview with The Canadian Press. “The heart and the mind is still there so we’ll go one year at a time. But I still love (playing hockey).” Dubbed “Captain Clutch” for her uncanny ability to rise in big games, Poulin once again led Canada to gold with two goals in the final at the Beijing Games last month. She has now scored in four consecutive Olympic finals, tallying seven goals in the sport’s biggest games. There’s been much speculation about how the three-time gold medalist will follow up her latest Olympic performance,...

Sgt. Rodney Grassmann, a spokesman for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, said authorities are investigating how he got the firearm despite the court order. Detectives in Sacramento on Tuesday were still trying to sort out the chain of events that led to the gunman entering the sanctuary at the Church in Sacramento, on Wyda Way east of the city, shortly after 5 p.m. and opening fire.

    News of yet another violent crime in Buckhead apparently won’t nudge Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and other high-ranking GOP legislators to push for legislation to allow Buckhead residents to vote on separating from crime-plagued Atlanta. Members of the Atlanta Police Department (APD) reported a violent carjacking in Buckhead on Sunday. Buckhead City Committee members have urged Kemp, Speaker of the House David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge), and Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan (R-Cumming) to use their political clout to push for a vote. APD officials said in a statement that the alleged carjacking occurred at the 3000 block of Peachtree Road Northwest. “Upon arrival, the female victim advised while driving her white Nissan Sentra, she was stopped at the traffic light at West Paces Ferry Rd. when a dark-colored vehicle pulled up behind her.

Almost everyone — vaccinated or not — will still have to wear a mask when: In a hospital, medical clinic, dialysis center, dentist’s office or any other place where healthcare is provided.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS News) — The times, they are uncertain. People think the fight against COVID has improved dramatically in recent weeks, up double-digits, but still not good, say Americans who’ve now been through a few up-and-down waves. With a majority still concerned about the virus, it’s not over for them, as people voice both patience with restrictions and some frustration from dealing with it all. For parents, in particular, there’s still majority support for masking in schools. At the same time, many of them say the pandemic has taken a toll on their kids’ emotional health and education.

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Tuesday that right now is not the time for state and local leaders to end COVID-19 restrictions. In an interview with WYPR, Walensky noted that while the agency is "cautiously optimistic" about case numbers and hospitalizations trending downward, there are still a significant number of cases and hospitalizations in comparison to other pandemic peaks. MORE STATES REPORT DROP IN COVID-19 CASES, HOSPITALIZATIONS "We will continue to evaluate the science. But, right now, we still have about 290,000 cases every single day. And, our hospitalization rates now are higher than they even were at the peak of our delta surge. And so – in this moment – while we are looking ahead and planning ahead, we will continue to evaluate and follow the science. Our recommendations are consistent with encouraging students to wear well-fitting masks," she said. When asked about what she thinks about the approach to loosen restrictions when it seems warranted and reinstate them should the need arise, Walensky said it's something worth considering.   Centers for...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — When President Joe Biden met with U.S. governors at the White House on Monday, he was the only one given a glass of water — lest anyone else remove their mask to take a drink. The president was seated more than 10 feet from everyone, including Vice President Kamala Harris and members of his Cabinet. A White House staffer who was wearing a surgical mask when Biden entered the room was quickly handed an N95 version. These are just some of the extraordinary efforts on the part of the White House to keep the president from getting COVID-19, even though he’s gotten both of his regular vaccinations and his booster. It’s no surprise that unusual steps are taken to protect any president. But the strict precautions could also threaten to undercut the Biden administration’s own efforts to tell Americans — especially those who are vaccinated and boosted — that they can get on with something closer to their normal lives in the face of the omicron wave. And it’s emblematic of the messaging challenges...
    After the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, did Ben Roethlisberger officially announce his retirement? The Pittsburgh Steelers found a way to make it to the playoffs with their win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 18 and with a bit of help. That meant the team’s Wild Card Game against the Kansas City Chiefs could be the last for longtime Steelers starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Despite taking an early lead in the second quarter, the Chiefs steamrolled the Steelers for the 42-21 victory. After the game, Roethlisberger reflected on this season with the Steelers. However, he did not officially announce that he was calling it a career. “It’s tough, but I’m proud to play with these guys,” Roethlisberger said, via CBS Sports. “God has blessed me with the ability to throw a football and has blessed me to play in the greatest city, in Pittsburgh, with the greatest fans and the greatest football team and players. It has just truly been a blessing. I’m so thankful to him for giving me this opportunity.”Ben Roethlisberger has not officially...
    John Stamos says he's not ready to accept his dear friend and "Full House" costar Bob Saget's death. Stamos took to Instagram early Tuesday morning to share his disbelief that Saget is no longer alive. "I'm not ready to accept that he's gone - I'm not going to say goodbye yet," Stamos wrote in a lengthy caption alongside a post of him and Saget posing on a red carpet. Stamos said he is going to believe that Saget is still doing what he loves: performing standup and making audiences laugh.

    Louis Riddick realizes he is in a favorable position. He is an analyst on the NFL’s most iconic television package — ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” — and still has hopes of running a franchise as a general manager. But with the offseason starting for many teams on Monday, will this be the year he returns to a front-office role? “I have one of the great broadcasting jobs in America, period,” Riddick said. “I have always been very up front, starting with (ESPN president) Jimmy Pitaro that this is not a situation where I’m going, ‘I want to get back to the NFL.’ If teams call and want to talk to me about being a general manager, then I have a definite interest in that kind of thing because it’s always been a career goal of mine, and it’s always been a challenge that I have been interested in. “And if it were to be something that was a great fit for them and me, then sure, then we would take it down the road and see how far it...
    Despite Antonio Brown embarrassing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, the team still hasn’t officially released him yet.  People can’t stop talking about Antonio Brown. As has been the case over the years, it’s not for a good reason. The scenes of Brown ripping his jersey and pads off, while throwing up peace signs without a shirt on will never be forgotten. He quit on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the middle of a game and Bruce Arians wasted no time saying the veteran receiver is no longer part of the team. Having said that, Brown still hasn’t officially been released by the Bucs. What’s the hold up?Antonio Brown is expected to be cut by Tampa Bay in the coming daysAccording to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the Bucs have been in contact with the NFL about which release designation they need to use with Brown. At the end of the day, this is a procedural decision for the Tampa Bay front office, and they want to do what makes the most sense for the team. So yes, technically...
    A Covid-19 rapid PCR test site sign at Cape Town International Airport in Cape Town, South Africa, on Friday, Dec. 3, 2021.Dwayne Senior | Bloomberg | Getty Images The World Health Organization on Wednesday cautioned that omicron has not spread widely among the populations most at risk, making it difficult to determine whether or not the Covid variant is inherently less severe than previous strains of the virus. Dr. Abdi Mahamud, the WHO's incident manager for Covid, said data from South Africa suggesting omicron causes milder illness is encouraging, but the variant has mostly infected younger people so far who generally develop less severe disease from Covid. "We all want this disease to be milder, but the population it affected so far is the younger. How it behaves in the elderly population, the vulnerable — we don't know yet," Mahamud said during a press briefing in Geneva. "It's too early to determine," Mahamud said, adding that there's not enough data on how omicron affects people over 60, those who have underlying medical conditions, and the unvaccinated. "We're optimistic, but I...
    Knowing the muscle layers will help doctors perform the best surgery Human anatomy has some more surprises. Researchers at the University of Basel in Switzerland recently discovered a previously unexplained part of the human body, the deep layer of jaw muscles needed to lift and chew the lower jaw. They first described this layer in detail. Senior Writer Dr. Jens Christophe Dorp is a professor and physician at the Center for Dentistry at the University of Basel in Switzerland. Press release University on December 20 – “Although it is generally accepted that anatomical research has not changed any endeavor in the last 100 years, our discovery is similar to that discovered by zoologists of a new type of vertebrate.” Mastictery muscle This finding is related to the muscular muscle, which is one of the four muscles of the mastication. It consists of superficial muscle fibers and deep muscle fibers, a small muscle, but it is also one of the strongest muscles in the body, and it covers the branch of the coronary process of the jaw bone....
    Just 10 months after a near-fatal car accident, Tiger Woods and 12-year-old son Charlie nearly pulled off a miracle at the PNC Championship Coming into the PNC Championship, there was a lot of talk about the things Tiger Woods couldn’t do. He couldn’t walk the course, he admitted freely. He didn’t have anywhere close to his usual power. But then he, along with 12-year-old son Charlie, showed what he still can do better than anyone. What a near-fatal car accident and months in a hospital bed didn’t take away. He still had that fiery determination, the touch on the greens, and a maniacal will to win. Woods nearly pulled it off on Sunday, he and Charlie making 11 birdies in a row to finish at 25-under for the tournament and only two shots behind John Daly and his son. Their final-round 57 was just one shot off the tournament record. All this just 299 days after his career seemed over. In February, Woods crashed his Genesis SUV while driving in Los Angeles. His right leg shattered into pieces. He originally...
    Getty Images While household debt reached a record $17 trillion in the second quarter of 2021, many American households have felt less financial stress this year thanks to Covid-19-related government policies. That's according to the federal Financial Stability Oversight Council, which released its annual report for 2021 on Friday. The council was created by legislation following the financial crisis of 2008-2009. The report found that while many households have been buoyed by more generous unemployment insurance payments and stimulus checks, some people are still facing financial distress, particularly if they work in sectors that were harder hit by the pandemic.

    Yale history professor Joanne Freeman has a stern warning for the United States: the worst may still be yet to come for America. In a new op-ed posted by The Washington Post, Freeman noted how “tempting" it is "to conclude that the insurgency failed" nearly one year after former President Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election. But she is making it clear that Trump's failure does not mean the attack on the American government is over. Freeman also explained why the situation is so much more critical now. “Our government is still under attack. The offensive is quieter now but no less menacing, eroding the government from within,” the professor noted. "The fundamental right to vote is under siege. The regulation of elections is being corrupted. And faith in the electoral process is fading; the “big lie” about Donald Trump’s supposed victory in 2020 has staying power for just that reason." In addition to the attack on the government, Freeman also highlighted how Trump's strategic attack has also impacted Americans' ability to trust and rely...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The president’s announcement to release millions of gallons of oil from the country’s reserves is already driving down some gas prices nationally, but Pittsburghers are still paying about the same $3.55 as they were a couple of weeks ago. “Consumers can probably expect gas prices to be cheaper in the next coming weeks and next couple of months barring any outlying factors,” said Jim Garrity, AAA East Central spokesperson. READ MORE: PennDOT Asking For Public Input Ahead Of Bridge Work In Westmoreland CountyPart of the issue has been supply and demand. As the number of drivers increases, gas stations have to fill up more. Although the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has just been found, oil providers are expecting less people to travel, which has already made an impact. “We started to see crude oil prices come down when it was announced that the Biden administration would tap into oil reserves,” said Garrity. “Then we saw crude oil prices come down even further when concerns hit the market about the Omicron variant.” READ MORE: Man Being Charged After...
    In this article COLM CLBK VIDEO1:4601:46CNBC Fed Survey: Taper imminent, inflation now biggest economic threatSquawk BoxEven though the Federal Reserve didn't raise its benchmark rate Wednesday, the days of low rates are clearly numbered. Reports of hotter-than-anticipated inflation have paved the way for the central bank to unwind last year's bond buying. While the Fed said that interest rates will stay near zero for now, the tapering of bond purchases is seen as the first step on the way to interest-rate hikes. That will inevitably impact the rates consumers pay. In fact, rates are already rising for long-term borrowing costs, said Yiming Ma, an assistant finance professor at Columbia University Business School.

    In this article IVZ ENPH VIDEO4:1604:16Solar vs. broad energy stocks: Two traders choose sidesTrading NationIt's worth hanging onto traditional energy stocks despite the recent resurgence in solar names, two traders say. The popular Invesco Solar ETF (TAN) is up nearly 10% this week, helped in part by Enphase Energy's surge after reporting record revenue for its third quarter. TAN is beating the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE) in the past month, up almost 22% versus the XLE's 8.5% gain, but is still lagging year to date. Although oil and gas stocks are facing some headwinds including rising U.S. crude stockpiles, "we believe there's more value in the energy sector," Vios Advisors managing director Michael Bapis told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Wednesday. "They're going to play a big role in the basic economic recovery. They are going to be one of the prime benefactors of the infrastructure bill," said Bapis, whose firm is housed at Rockefeller Capital Management. "There's a much higher demand than there is supply. We have winter coming," he said. "We have the growth-to-value rotation and...
    Dumfries, Virginia (CNN)Terry McAuliffe may be running against Glenn Youngkin, but his ultimate rhetorical opponent in the closing days of Virginia's off-year gubernatorial race is a Republican who lost a year ago. And voters at McAuliffe's rally on Thursday evening with Vice President Kamala Harris clearly got the message. "He is a bad photocopy of Trump," Nelson Zaragoza, a mechanic from Stafford, Virginia, said of Youngkin, comparing him to former President Donald Trump. "He supports everything that Trump has been trying to push, he is doing the same thing." The level Democratic campaigns in Virginia have focused on Trump over the last few months has turned the off-year elections into the biggest test yet for whether the former President, who motivated historic Democratic turnout for the years he was either on the ballot or in power, still motivates the party's base to vote in extraordinary numbers. This lesson, determined by how the tight Virginia's races for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general end up on November 2, will reverberate within the Democratic Party for years, as both official party committees...

Jackson as the top cornerback in New England. On Thursday, Jackson was asked about what he learned from playing with Gilmore and said it was “the mentality he had to go out and compete every week facing the No. 1 receiver.” He said it was something he tries to emulate because he wants to be a “No. 1 corner” in the NFL and doesn’t feel that he’s reached that level to this point. “No, I’m not there yet.
