    Mandel Ngan/Getty Images Many PBS stations reportedly dumped Monday’s hearing by the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol and instead showed kids shows. Children’s programs including Curious George were showed in lieu of the committee hearing, reported The Washington Post on Wednesday. That day’s hearing began shortly after 10 a.m.,  whereas the June 9 hearing was in primetime and was carried by cable news and other stations. PBS stations in states including, but not limited to, Wyoming, Michigan, Georgia, New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and Arizona showed children’s programming – including Sesame Street, Donkey Hodie and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood – and relegated Monday’s hearing to online streaming. The PBS station in North Carolina, following viewer complaints over not airing the primetime hearing, aired Monday’s hearing, according to the Post. WyomingPBS station manager Terry Dugas told the Post, “We have a commitment to the parents in Wyoming to provide a ‘safe harbor’ on our main channel for their children during the day.” He told the outlet that his station has “received no complaints” as of Tuesday. Monday’s...
    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – The number of Florida hospital inpatients with COVID-19 has increased nearly 17 percent this week, according to data released Thursday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The data showed 2,352 inpatients with COVID-19, up from 2,018 in a Monday count. Also, the data showed 212 COVID-19 patients in intensive-care units, up from 158 on Monday. Numbers of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations have steadily increased in recent weeks, as variants of the coronavirus have developed and spread. The numbers, however, remain significantly lower than early in the year, when the highly contagious omicron variant swept across the state. (©2022 CBS Local Media. All rights reserved.

    The alleged harassment of Los Angeles County children by a mask opponent is being investigated by sheriff’s deputies. Though the Crescenta Valley station of the sheriff’s office on Monday released a statement acknowledging it was “aware” of one incident and would be investigating, a group of parents showed up at the station that evening to call for more decisive action about unpleasant encounters they say have been going on for weeks. A video circulating on social media — including Reddit’s Public Freakout forum — was reportedly recorded Thursday by a parent outside a shopping center in La Crescenta. A man wearing a T-shirt that says “Your mask makes you look stupid” shouts about mask wearers, insulting onlookers, using foul language and saying masks are child abuse. Among those in the parking lot are five boys who appear to be of middle-school age. A sheriff’s spokesman told Los Angeles TV station KTLA that deputies responded to a call from that site in which a person reported the anti-masker was shoving children during his rant. Since the incident became public, more video...
    The Washington, D.C., Metropolitan area had its biggest snow storm Monday since 2019, leading to roadways covered and school closures just as classes were set to reopen after the start of the new year. The National Weather Service said 6.7 inches of snow was recorded on the ground at Reagan National Airport in Northern Virginia, which is the most since January 2019. Washington Dulles International Airport notched 3.9 inches while Baltimore-Washington International Airport collected 6.8 inches. D.C. Public Schools said via a statement that its schools would reopen on Thursday allowing time for students to pick up COVID-19 test kits on Tuesday and Wednesday. Other area schools announced closures through Tuesday with some opting for virtual learning. Federal offices in the area were closed Monday. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser declared a snow emergency and extended it through 7 a.m. Tuesday. Parts of Northern Virginia saw snowfall accumulation of 10 to 14 inches while Huntingtown, Maryland. recorded 15.5 inches Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – The number of Florida hospital inpatients with COVID-19 increased, but those in intensive-care units remained virtually unchanged, according to data released Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The data showed that 1,359 hospital inpatients had COVID-19, up from 1,298 on Monday. It also showed that 263 COVID-19 patients were in intensive-care units, down from 265 reported Monday. COVID-19 hospitalizations have remained relatively stable recently and are far below numbers that surged during the summer as the highly transmissible delta variant spread across the state. Nationally, 62,204 hospital inpatients had COVID-19, according to Tuesday’s data. (©2021 CBS Local Media. All rights reserved.

    Daniel Rider was unaware of the melee taking place less than a mile away from his house at the Waukesha Christmas parade. Then chaos came knocking on his door. Rider, who had just gotten back from hunting and was spread out on the couch watching football, heard a knock. His doorbell camera recorded a man in a red T-shirt shivering and begging to come inside around 5 p.m. "I called an Uber , and I'm supposed to be waiting for it over here, but I don't know when it's coming," the mysterious man can be heard saying. "Can you call it for me please? I'm homeless." Rider's Midwestern hospitality kicked in. He invited the man into his home, gave him a jacket, made him a sandwich, and let him use his phone. BIDEN MOURNS VICTIMS OF WAUKESHA PARADE ATTACK "All of a sudden, I look outside my street and I saw a few cop cars drive by and I'm getting extra nervous," he told NBC News , who obtained the doorbell cam footage. Not wanting any trouble, Rider asked...
    Former Boston Police commissioner Ed Davis said on Monday that the suspect involved in the Wisconsin Christmas parade tragedy should have been "separated from society" considering his criminal background. "It’s remarkable that the district attorney’s office has already said that he should have been held on higher bail," Davis told "America Reports."  "You look at the raw video footage of him not only mowing down, but driving over people. All he had to do was stop that car, just stop doing what he was doing. So the intent to murder was clearly there after he had the first person. This is a very serious case," Davis said. WISCONSIN CHRISTMAS PARADE TRAGEDY RESULTS IN MULTIPLE DEATHS, INJURIES; SUSPECT IN CUSTODY Authorities in a Milwaukee suburb continued overnight to deal with the aftermath after a red SUV plowed into Christmas parade marchers and spectators Sunday evening, striking more than 20 adults and children. Waukesha city officials confirmed that at least five people had died and more than 40 suffered injuries. They warned that both numbers could change, with more information expected at a...
    Severe storms and flooding pounded the Gulf Coast once again Monday, shutting down highways and forcing residents to evacuate buildings.  Videos and images posted to social media showed abandoned vehicles and fast-moving floodwaters as they passed through streets and impacted homes.  LOUISIANA FATHER PICKING UP HIS KIDS FROM SCHOOL USING A KAYAK ON FLOODED COMMON ST. IN LAKE CHARLES Photos from FOX 44 in Baton Rouge, La., showed wires and studio floors surrounded by water, and a WFAA reporter shared footage of flooding in Dallas, Texas, threatening his backyard.  A Twitter video from the community of Lake Charles, La., showed a father taking his two children home from school in a kayak.  The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a flash flood emergency there, and USA Today said some areas of the state reported as many as 12 inches of rain.  In Fannett, Texas, The Weather Channel said local reports showed the town had received as much as 18 inches of rain. Diners at a Lake Charles restaurant remained in seats even as water flooded the eatery, and the city's mayor,...
    Khalil Ferebee, the son of Andrew Brown Jr. who was fatally shot by deputies in North Carolina last week, said his father's death "was an execution" a day after viewing body camera footage on Monday. "It was an execution ... it's video that no son should see dealing with his father at all," Ferebee said Tuesday while appearing on CNN's "New Day." "It was an execution ... it's video that no son should see dealing with his father at all," says Khalil Ferebee, son of Andrew Brown Jr., on viewing the 20-second body cam footage of his father's shooting.https://t.co/vGefnwN3SY pic.twitter.com/Rko7byd5w2— New Day (@NewDay) April 27, 2021 Members of Brown's family were shown 20 seconds of footage from police body cameras on Monday. Their attorneys said more of the footage should have been provided, and they also argued that Brown's full legal team was not shown the 20 seconds of video. The family and attorneys say that Brown was not posing a threat to officers when he was shot and killed by them. Chantel Cherry-Lassiter, an attorney for the family who did...
    If Alabama quarterback Mac Jones isn’t the 49ers’ selection with the No. 3 pick in Thursday’s first round of the NFL Draft, then San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan is truly an incredible actor. Because Shanahan and general manager John Lynch had their final media availably before Thursday’s pick, and it sure sounded like the San Francisco head coach was starting to do damage control for what will be an unpopular pick in the Alabama quarterback. This isn’t some galaxy brain take. It didn’t take an expert to connect those dots. Neither Shanahan nor Lynch said Jones’ name, but he was the subtext of the entire presser — one, it should be noted, in which Shanahan was a late addition to the dais. In all, it was roughly 30 minutes of defensiveness, with the vast majority of it coming from Shanahan, who seemed to consistently be on the verge of declaring that the media and fans don’t know anything. “It is so irresponsible to let [social media] affect your decision,” Shanahan said. “We do this for...
    People gather for a peaceful demonstration, Thursday, April 22, 2021, in Elizabeth City, N.C., protesting the shooting of Andrew Brown Jr., 42, by a deputy sheriff trying to serve a search warrant. AP Photo/Gerry Broome Lawyers for the family of Andrew Brown Jr., who was fatally shot by a sheriff's deputy in North Carolina last week, say law enforcement officers only showed them 20 seconds of body camera footage from the incident. The group of lawyers, which include civil rights attorney Ben Crump, held a press conference in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, on Monday after viewing the footage from the Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office. Facebook Icon The letter F. Follow Insider on Facebook "We don't feel that we got transparency," Crump said at the press conference. "We only saw a snippet of the video." Viewing of the footage was delayed on Monday after officials said they were blurring faces to to "protect an active internal investigation" into the shooting. Brown was fatally shot by a Pasquotank County Sheriff's deputy who was attempting to arrest Brown on felony drug charges...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – CVS announced it would receive the recently-approved COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson in the coming days, as the pharmacy chain seeks to increase its rollout of the shots. A pharmacy spokesperson told KPIX 5 on Monday that they anticipate the doses of the one-shot vaccine this week. California is among 17 states where the pharmacy is offering the shots at stores to those who are eligible. Shipments of the vaccine began on Monday, after receiving emergency use authorization by the Food and Drug administration over the weekend. A search of the pharmacy’s website Monday afternoon showed some appointments available at Bay Area locations, but the pharmacy stressed that “availability can change quickly” due to demand. The vaccine received authorization after research showed the shot showed 85% efficacy in severe illness and 100% protection against COVID-19 deaths 28 days after the shot. It is also the first COVID-19 vaccine to require one shot instead of two. Ahead of last weekend’s approval, Gov. Gavin Newsom said he expected the state would receive 1.1 million doses of...
    BERLIN, Jan 25 (Reuters) – One in five German companies is facing a liquidity squeeze amid a second lockdown that has seen most stores and schools shuttered since mid-December, a survey of 18,000 businesses by the DIHK chambers of commerce showed. That figure is down from 27% in November but shows that government aid is proving insufficient to fully compensate for lost revenues. Some 5% of companies that participated in the DIHK study said they faced the threat of insolvency, down from around 9% in November, according to a summary of the survey to be published on Tuesday and seen by Reuters on Monday. Especially hard hit are creative and artistic businesses, where a third said they saw a risk of insolvency, followed by tourism agencies with 30%, taxi companies with 27%, and restaurants and bars with 20%. The percentage of companies that reported their equity capital had shrunk over recent months stood at 25%, compared with 40%, the survey showed. Chancellor Angela Merkel and state leaders agreed last week to extend a lockdown until mid-February as Germany, once seen...
    PUEBLO, Colo. (CBS4) – It has been nearly eight years since Kelsie Schelling disappeared. Now, her boyfriend, Donthe Lucas, is about to be tried for her murder. After multiple delays, the trial is scheduled to begin on Monday. Kelsie Schelling (credit: CBS) When she disappeared in February 2013, Schelling was pregnant and was reportedly travelling from Denver to Pueblo to talk to Lucas about it. Donthe Lucas (credit: Pueblo Police Dept.) Messages on Schelling’s phone showed she texted Lucas that she was pregnant, and his replies indicated he was unhappy. On the day she reportedly disappeared, GPS on her phone showed it traveled to the same location in Pueblo as Lucas’ phone. Police believe Lucas was the last person to see Schelling and have said he took $400 out of her account on that day. Police found Schelling’s car in a Walmart parking lot in Pueblo a few days after she was reported missing. Lucas is charged with her murder even though her body has never been found. His trial date is now set to start on Jan. 25. Lucas...
    Katelyn Runck started the work week off with a bang. On Monday morning, the model treated her 2.4 million Instagram fans to a hot new post that included two photos and one video that saw her in the same, sexy ensemble. The first image in the series captured Katelyn posing in the center of the frame. She stood in front of an open door, placing one hand on the wall beside her and running the opposite through her long, dark tresses. She wore her hair with a deep side part, and it spilled over her shoulders and back. She popped her hip to the side and had one thigh over the other in the sultry pose. The second image in the series was snapped from a different angle, treating Katelyn’s eager audience to a great view of her bombshell curves. She had her chest facing toward the camera and averted her gaze to the side. Katelyn showed off her balance skills, standing on her right leg and bending the opposite at the knee like a flamingo. The last upload in...
    Hospital and nursing officials fear that if COVID-19 cases continue unchecked there won't be enough nurses to staff new hospital beds in the near future in the Kansas City metro area. “All the things we were worried about could be possible in March, April and May are actually happening right now, and that should be scary for all of us,” said David Wild, vice president of performance improvement at the University of Kansas Health System. Kansas health officials on Monday added 4,425 cases to the state’s pandemic tally since Friday, bringing the total to 157,446. Data showed that Kansas averaged 2,198 new confirmed and probable coronavirus a day for the seven days ending Monday. That is below the record average of 2,766 cases. The number of COVID-19 related deaths also rose by 31 to 1,560. It is too soon to see how Thanksgiving gatherings have impacted coronavirus numbers, but medical providers expect to see another rise in hospitalizations in 10 to 14 days once people begin showing symptoms. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment reported on Monday 87 new...
    WWE superstar Lana took to Instagram on Monday and stunned her 3.7 followers of a photo of her rocking a peculiar choice in attire. In the upload, the Monday Night Raw star sat on a grey chair and gazed into the camera as she held her shades below her eyes. Her choice of clothing was a brown sheer snakeskin bodysuit that contained some pink, purple and blue colouring across the design. “The Ravishing Russian’s” black bra was visible underneath the bodysuit, which was skintight and showed off her enviable physique. She topped the ensemble off with a pair of black heels that showed off her feet and green nail polish. The room that Lana sat in was made up of a grey rug, white curtains and a gold cabinet. A brown sailboat ornament was also visible in the background, but it was Lana who captured most of the attention. Lana also shared a positive sentiment in the accompanying caption, encouraging her followers to believe in themselves no matter water. The picture was credited to Fashion Nova, a popular online women’s...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Monday night was not a great one for the Tompa Bay Buccaneers. They struggled all night against the lowly New York Giants, actually trailing in the fourth quarter and kind of leaning on some suspect officiating to squeak out a 25-23 win in the Meadowlands. A win is a win, sure, and the Bucs are now 6-2 and sit a half-game back of the Seahawks for the best record in the NFC. But coming off blowout wins over the Packers and Raiders, people expected more. As for the quarterback — an ol’ gunslinger by the name of Tom Brady — it was likewise an unspectacular night on several fronts. His statistics don’t pop, the offense didn’t dominate, and so many folks might be liable to say that Brady was not very good. In terms of statistics, they’d be right. Brady was 28-for-40 for 279 yards with two touchdowns and no picks. His 106.1 passer rating was very shiny, but averaging under 7 yards per attempt against a bottom-third pass defense is nothing to celebrate....
    Devin Brugman honored Breast Cancer Month on Monday, October 12, when she treated her 1.3 million Instagram followers to a new post that saw her flaunting her sculpted physique in a light pink bikini. The two-picture slideshow captured the American model and businesswoman hanging out poolside as she soaked up the sun on a lounge chair. For the first, she leaned back, placing her hands behind her for support. The second showed her sitting up with her ankles crossed in front of her. The underwire two-piece bathing suit flattered her hourglass figure while its low neckline showed off her ample cleavage. On her lower body, Brugman rocked a pair of matching bottoms boasting a U-shaped waistband that showcased her tight stomach. It included thin strings that tied into bows, which she wore pulled up high onto her curvy hips. The tag indicated that her swimsuit was from Monday Swimwear, a brand she runs with Natasha Oakley. Brugman wore her brunette tresses down in natural waves and accessorized her ensemble with a pair of dark brown shades. View this post on...
    MADRID (Reuters) - Madrid's famous Royal Theatre had to cancel a Sunday night opera production after a group of spectators loudly protested over being allocated seats too close to each other amid a steep surge in coronavirus infections in the Spanish capital. The incident, in which the orchestra twice tried to start playing before giving up, occurred two days after the theatre welcomed facemask-wearing spectators, including King Felipe VI, for the opening of the season with the aptly named "A Masked Ball" by Giuseppe Verdi. The opera house said in a statement that the occupancy rate on Sunday was just over half of all seats, below the regional limit of 75%, although it had no control over people buying more tickets for certain areas. "All safety requirements were respected. Viewers were wearing masks, temperature was taken and sanitizer gel was available," Chairman Gregorio Maranon told reporters on Monday, adding that the theatre would consider changes to address viewers' concerns over health risks. The theatre said a minority of viewers had forced the cancellation by shouting and clapping, despite being offered...
    SACRAMENTO — A driver swerved into a small crowd of people protesting President Donald Trump’s visit in California on Monday, knocking some to the ground. Video from KCRA-TV in Sacramento showed a group of protesters approach a car near McClellan Air Force Base on Monday, where Trump was receiving a briefing from state officials on the wildfires burning throughout the state. The slowly moving car swerved to the right and knocked a few people to the ground before driving away. KCRA reported that at least two people appeared injured. One was treated by fellow protesters and another was taken away in an ambulance. About an hour earlier, footage showed protesters blocking a red truck at an intersection, which then moved slowly through an intersection, brushing some people before it drove away.
    BAYTOWN, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – A Texas police officer has been charged with assault for fatally shooting a woman after a struggle over the officer’s stun gun last year, prosecutors announced Monday. A Harris County grand jury indicted Baytown Officer Juan Delacruz Monday for shooting Pamela Turner in the parking lot of an apartment complex where they both lived in May 2019. Delacruz was charged with aggravated assault by a public servant, a felony that could lead to a sentence of five years to life in prison if he’s convicted. Prosecutors said he’ll be given the chance to turn himself in. Delacruz shot Turner after a struggle with the 44-year-old Black woman that a bystander captured on video.

    Lakers star LeBron James showed up to Monday’s bubble game against the Denver Nuggets in an open-chested outift. The “Miami Drip” outfit caught Dwyane Wade’s attention and he decided to have a little fun with it while guesting on Monday’s NBA pregame show on TNT. MORE: Damian Lillard calls Skip Bayless a clown James’ former Miami Heat teammate and good friend showed up to the studio wearing a similar version of the outfit — and even added some baby oil to suggest that James had done the same.

    MINSK (Reuters) - Belarusian opposition politician Svetlana Tikhanouskaya said on Monday she refused to recognise official results that showed incumbent Alexander Lukashenko had won a landslide re-election victory. Preliminary official results earlier on Monday showed that Lukashenko had won 80% of the vote in Sunday's election. Tikhanouskaya, a former English teacher who emerged from obscurity to become his main rival, won 9.9% of the vote, the data showed. Tikhanouskaya told reporters in Minsk she considered herself the election winner not Lukashenko. She said the election had been massively rigged. Her aides said the opposition wanted a vote recount at polling stations where there were problems. They also said the opposition wanted to hold talks with authorities about how to bring about a peaceful change of power.

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — State health numbers show cases of confirmed coronavirus continued this week to pile up in Nebraska. On Thursday, the state Department of Health and Human Services’ online virus tracker showed 296 cases were confirmed the day before, bringing the state’s total to 23,486. The site also showed an additional COVID-19 death on Wednesday, bringing the state’s total to 311 since the outbreak began. Nebraska’s hospitals also showed signs of being affected by the recent increases, with 36% of the state’s hospital intensive care unit beds available Thursday, compared with 42% availability on Monday. However, the state’s availability of ventilators improved to 81%, compared with 78% on Monday. The rising numbers came as a state high school band association canceled an annual fall marching band contest for fear of exposing students and staff to the virus. The Nebraska State Bandmasters Association announced Wednesday it was canceling the State Marching Contest and Festival, which had been set for Oct. 24 across several sites in Kearney, Lincoln and Omaha.

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa state health officials reported another jump in confirmed cases of coronavirus, as well as another death, to kick off the week as the state continues to see a rise in hospitalizations from the virus. The state health department’s virus tracking site showed 343 cases and one death had been confirmed in the 24-hour period from Sunday to 10 a.m. Monday. The state’s total deaths since the beginning of the outbreak stood at 793 Monday, while the total number of cases reached 38,907. As of Monday morning, 221 people were hospitalized for the virus — a number that has been slowly increasing over the last few weeks after the state hit a low of 118 hospitalized on June 27 from its peak of 417 on May 6. Despite the increases in hospitalizations, Iowa hospitals remained in reasonably good shape to take on new patients, according to the website, which showed 44% of the state's hospital beds available Monday. That included 498 intensive care unit beds. The site also showed 81% of the state's ventilators still...
    Natasha Oakley looked incredible in three photos she recently shared on her Instagram feed. She wore a skimpy bikini that left very little to the imagination as she flaunted her famous figure. Of course, the pics created a stir among her following and they raced to view the pic. Natasha and her friend, Devin Brugman, are co-creators of the Monday Swimwear line. On Monday, July 6, Natasha took to social media to share the incredible news that they have expanded their range to include Monday Beachwear. The model shared three photos, and in two of them, another model also showed off the line. Natasha wore a chambray bandeau bikini with a peasant sleeve and a cute circular inset in the front. The beauty of the bikini was that it could easily double as a rather skimpy crop top. The social media star flaunted her cleavage and ripped abs as she teamed the bikini with its matching bottoms. The high-leg style allowed her to expose her trim hips and toned thighs. Natasha wore her hair in a deep side-part and allowed...
    Qimmah Russo showed off her toned body while providing her Instagram fans with some inspiration this morning. The model shared a series of five images, which she credited to photographer Shot By Sham, that were shot on a black background. In the set, she wore a pink cropped tank top with the word “kiss” emblazoned across the chest in sparkly stones. The garment featured a cut-out v on the neckline, which dipped down to show off her ample cleavage. She paired the top with black bikini-style panties that dipped down in the front to highlight her toned, flat stomach, and small straps rose over her hips to show off her curves. Qimmah drew attention to her rock hard abs with a sparkly belly button ring, which seemed to be her only jewelry accessory. In the first image, Qimmah held onto the bottom of the shirt with one hand, which revealed her long, French manicure and showcased her muscular arms. She wore her long black curly hair in curls that cascaded over her shoulder. It also looked like the model accented...
    Secretary of Defense Mark Esper did the wrong thing before, days later, he did the right thing. Walking across Lafayette Park cleared by pepper gas and something called pepper-ball projectiles by troops on the order of the Attorney General William Barr, he was summoned to stand with the president, who was giving stage directions for his tableau where he would “dominate” the “battle space.” Esper was not innocent, but he did look flummoxed when Donald Trump pulled a Bible out of Ivanka’s purse and then didn’t read so much as a comforting passage. Five years ago, he famously remarked of  the book, Old and New Testament, that they’re “equal” and “incredible” and he couldn’t possibly single out a verse. “I joke, very much so. They always hold up The Art of the Deal and I say my second favorite book of all time.”  Of all the jokes Trump has gotten off, Monday’s march to St. John’s church that he’d visited one time in three years was the biggest. A day later, Esper tried to photo-shop himself out of what...
