    Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo actually signed the legislation making the language change last summer. However, due to legal technicalities, the law had to be re-signed in the 2021-2022 legislative session, according to WYRK. While Cuomo, Rivera, Hochul, and other New York officials appear optimistic that the change in language will dramatically alter the self-esteem of convicted criminals, it is unlikely to alter the wave of violent crime in New York City or the depleted morale of the NYPD who have been charged with combating it. Fox 5 NY reports that violent crime on NYC subways last month was up 57% over July 2021. Meanwhile, big city police departments are struggling to attract new recruits and retain those already on staff. "We’re getting more calls for service and there are fewer people to answer them,” said Philadelphia police spokesperson Eric Gripp. “This isn’t just an issue in Philadelphia. Departments all over are down and recruitment has been difficult." Still, Gov. Hochul remains confident that the new law "correcting outdated terminology" will mitigate the "harmful stigma against incarcerated people."
    A suspected Michigan school shooter aged 15 who is charged with killing four is set to receive a laptop and internet access to continue his education online.   Ethan Crumbley will receive the device and internet access to take online college courses offered by the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic after he turns 16 next month. He missed the deadline to enroll in a high school course after being incarcerated in the wake of the November 2021 shooting at Oxford High School.    The matter was discussed in court on Thursday, when Crumbley appeared before a judge via Zoom from Oakland County Jail in Michigan pursuant to the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, a law that requires his placement in an adult facility to be reviewed every 30 days.   For now, he will remain there to await trial for four counts of first-degree premeditated murder, seven counts of assault terrorism and 12 weapons offenses for the November 30 attack that left Hana St. Juliana, 14, Tate Myre, 16, Madisyn Baldwin, 17 and Justin Shilling, 17, dead.  Crumbley only spoke briefly...
    Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) called out members of her own party in her opening statement for the January 6th House Select Committee. The hearing began on Tuesday with a montage of horrific footage from the storming of the U.S. Capitol, plus an opening statement from Committee chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) — who outlined how American democracy is at stake in the aftermath of Jan. 6. Cheney then delivered her opener — which she kicked off by noting that Tuesday’s proceeding only came to be after her fellow Republicans stopped a bipartisan agreement on a 9/11-style January 6th investigative commission months ago. Everybody on the dais voted for and preferred these matters investigated by an independent, non-partisan commission composed of five prominent Americans selected by each party and modeled on the 9/11 Commission. Although such a commission was opposed by my own leadership in the House, it overwhelmingly passed with the support of 35 Republican members. It was defeated by Republicans in the Senate, and that leaves us where we are today. Cheney went on to stress the importance of investigating...
    New York : After criticism received for the low level of the Turkish fighter before ‘Canelo’ Álvarez, the president of the World Boxing Council, Mauricio Sulaimán, warned that the regulation has to be reviewed of the process under which challengers are chosen. “Canelo looked very good, powerful, no hit missed, was tremendously accurate. The difference was immense. I feel sorry for Avni, sometimes on paper it does not reflect the actions and I was unlucky, I had high expectations. It is a question that we have to review the process that is not working with some rules ”. explained in an interview for Boxing Social. The process for choosing Avni Yildirim as challenger for the super middleweight title against the Mexican champion caused a lot of controversy because the Turkish fighter is practically a stranger in international boxing. Despite Yildirim had two years of inactivity and a loss the last time he stepped into the ring, when Álvarez faced the British Callum Smith, both contestants agreed that the winner would face Yildirim who appeared as the number...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a brief press conference Wednesday that Democrat talent “that’s been bottled up for so long will be unleashed” if Democrats are in control of the Senate. Schumer repeated many of the talking points made in his formal statement, declaring victory for Senate Democrats in the wake of Raphael Warnock defeating GOP incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and Jon Ossoff leading Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) by less than half of a percentage point in a race that remained uncalled as of Wednesday morning: Schumer said one of the first agenda items, in the event of an Ossoff victory, will be to deliver $2,000 checks to American families, while praising the Democrat candidates and their “first-rate” campaigns. The New York lawmaker said he had already spoken to “President[-elect Joe] Biden” and pledged to him that, as majority leader, Biden will have a “partner in me and my caucus” — one that is ready, willing and able to achieve a “forward-looking agenda” with a Democratic Senate, House, and President. “So much talent” in Congress...
    A prize bull has been born that is genetically engineered so that 75 per cent of his offspring will be male.   In the meat industry, males are preferable to female animals because they are heavier and are 15 per cent more efficient at turning food into bodyweight. This preference is the opposite for dairy cows, where females are favoured due to their ability to produce milk.  However, this genetically-modified bull, called Cosmo, is from a breed of cows that are grown for their meat, not for milk.  Cosmo was born in April at the University of California Davis, weighing around 110 pounds, and is believed to be perfectly healthy.  Scroll down for video  Cosmo (pictured) was born in April at University of California Davis and weighed around 110 pounds and is believed to be perfectly healthy. He has an additional SRY gene on chromosome 17 which is hoped to trigger male development in his future offspring which have the genetically female XY chromosomes  However, when Cosmo was just a clump of cells in the lab, experts inserted a gene called...
    Joe Biden gave another big speech on Tuesday, his third one one of this month. It was pre-billed as him stepping up his attacks on Donald Trump, and he did that (“Donald Trump failed us. Month after month, as many of us urged him to step up and do his job, he failed us”), both in prepared remarks and in response to press questions. But he also did something else, something that wasn’t “news” but was more compelling than a few canned jibes. Remember how Trump used to talk about how he’d be “so presidential that wyou people would be so bored”? Well, that’s never been true. But Biden is looking so presidential—no, really—that you’ll be thrilled. This man has changed: History has placed him in the most grim and daunting of occasions, and he is rising to it. He carries himself like a leader and public servant. He talks the way a president is supposed to talk. In laying out five steps he said we should take to fight the coronavirus, which any candidate would do, he conveyed empathy...

    Netflix's animated series "Big Mouth" is getting a recasting, the stars and creators of the show announced on Wednesday. Jenny Slate, who originally voiced Missy, a biracial character, said in a statement on Instagram she has "come to the decision" she can no longer play the role.  Slate said she originally reasoned with herself that it was permissible to play Missy because like her, the character's mom is white and Jewish. "I acknowledge how my original reasoning was flawed, that it existed as an example of white privilege and unjust allowances made within a system of societal white supremacy, and that in me playing 'Missy,' I was engaging in an act of erasure of Black people," Slate's statement says.  Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox While the character has a white mom, she has a black father.  View this post on Instagram A post shared by Jenny Slate (@jennyslate) on Jun 24, 2020 at 1:00pm PDT The creators of the show took to social media to explain the decision to recast the character, saying, "After thoughtful collaboration with...
