    (CNN)Minneapolis and its police department engaged in "a pattern or practice of race discrimination," Minnesota human rights officials said in a report Wednesday stemming from an investigation launched one week after the Memorial Day 2020 killing of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer. The Minnesota Department of Human Rights said on its website that it will "meet with community members, MPD officers, City staff, and other stakeholders to gather feedback on what should be included in a consent decree to address racial discrimination in policing in Minneapolis."The report cited "racial disparities in how MPD officers use force, stop, search, arrest, and cite people of color" and officers' "use of covert social media to surveil Black individuals and Black organizations, unrelated to criminal activity."Derek Chauvin appeals his murder conviction in the death of George FloydThe investigation also accused the department of "deficient training, which emphasizes a paramilitary approach to policing that results in officers unnecessarily escalating encounters or using inappropriate levels of force." CNN has reached out to Minneapolis police and the mayor's office for comment.Read MoreThe investigation...
    FOXBORO (CBS) — The New England Revolution held a training session for some members of Special Olympics Massachusetts on Sunday. The unified soccer clinic in Foxboro was the first of several events planned this year to mesh the two organizations. It’s also the first event that’s been held since the pandemic started. “It’s great, I’ve been with the team for 12 years now and I’ve been really involved with Special Olympics of Massachusetts, it’s something near and dear to my heart. There’s a few of us that have been here for several years now, and seeing these kids grow and being out here and seeing the smiles on their face every single time is something special, so it’s nice to be out here again with them,” said Revs goalkeeper Brad Knighton. There will be a united match at Gillette Stadium after a Revolution game in October.
    A South Jersey doctor was sentenced Monday to two years in federal prison for stealing more than $500,000 from his previous employer and using it to pay his bills. Walter Sytnik, 35, of Voorhees, forged checks for five years from checks he stole from the medical practice where he worked as a bookkeeper before going to medical school, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger said. Sytnik also opened and maintained credit card accounts at the same banks as the doctor at the medical practice, then forged the doctor’s signature on the stolen checks and paid his credit card bills with them, Sellinger said. "When Sytnik ran out of checks, he reordered new ones so that he could continue the fraud," the U.S. attorney said. Sytnik was arrested following an investigation by the FBI’s South Jersey Resident Agency, assisted by Voorhees police, Sellinger said. Rather than risk trial, he took a deal from the government, pleading guilty last September to mail fraud. Sytnik must serve just about all of the two years because there's no parole in the federal prison system. ...
    The National Weather Service estimates that about 40 people are struck by lightning every year and die. As a result, most individuals are raised aware of the dangers of being outside in a thunderstorm and so change their behaviors accordingly. When I tell you that the National Institutes of Health estimates that around 300 physicians in the U.S. die by suicide every year, would you be shocked to know that we as professional healers aren’t adequately trying to stop this? In fact, the current Minnesota licensure application explicitly discriminates against physicians who have or have experienced any form of mental duress within the past five years. There are discussions now about changing the language and I adamantly support these efforts for several reasons. As a medical student at the University of Minnesota and as a future physician, my life is not calm nor necessarily designed with my personal wellness in mind. While medical schools have increasingly put a focus on teaching students coping skills and the ability to recognize burnout, the larger system for physicians and health care overall is...

    The Cleveland Browns finally got on the practice field Friday two days before their first playoff game since the 2002 season. The Cleveland Browns have been dealing with COVID-19 issues for several weeks. That has thrown a bit of a wrench into the excitement surrounding the team’s first playoff game since the 2002 season. The Browns are headed to Pittsburgh this Sunday and finally got on the practice field Friday afternoon after being remote all week. Two days before their first playoff game in 18 seasons, the Browns will have their first practice of the week. https://t.co/JT8XNO979S — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 8, 2021 Browns back on the practice fieldThe players and coaches have spent the week saying they will be ready Sunday no matter what.

The worst news of the week came early when head coach Kevin...
    (CNN)I received my first rosary when my second grade class at a Catholic school in Baltimore received the sacrament of the first Holy Communion. The boys were given black rosaries and a prayer book, the girls the same, but their rosaries were white. That was back in 1965.My family was Catholic but we did not pray the rosary. I put the beads in a drawer, far more excited about the World Book Encyclopedia set I was given that same day. Never used, the rosary disappeared somewhere along the way. Keeping Faith in a Pandemic: Dr. Sanjay Guptas coronavirus podcast for April 10It wasn't until 1994 when I acquired a second string of beads honoring Mary, the mother of Jesus, as I walked the frozen streets of East Baltimore with Sister Maria D. Jackson of the Mission Helpers of the Sacred Heart.Sister Maria of the Way of the Cross, as she was known within the Mission Helpers order, was delivering Holy Eucharist to shut-ins in my neighborhood the day after an ice storm. We'd never met before I called the convent...

The Jaguars have the most crowded list, as of Saturday afternoon. © Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports The Jags placed 12 of their 16 practice squad players on their reserve/COVID-19 list. The Jags placed 12 of their 16 practice squad players on their reserve/COVID-19 list, per Tom Pelissero of NFL.com. This does not yet appear to be a case of a dozen positive tests. Jacksonville P-squad long snapper K.C. McDermott tested positive, and the league’s new contact tracing protocols have led the team to put the bulk of its practice squad on the COVID list for the time being. Suspended defensive end Josh Mauro will join McDermott and the slew of P-squad players on the COVID-19 list, Pelissero adds. Mauro has been suspended throughout the season for a positive PED test.

    A huge day awaits Mick Schumacher on Friday at the Nurburgring. The expected F1 practice debut will see Mick drive the Alfa Romeo C39 in the first session. He will not be alone, as fellow Ferrari academy driver Callum Ilott will also be there. He has been allotted the practice duties for driving the Haas VF-20. But, owing to the fact that Mick will be driving in front of his home crowd, he will be the more excited one. After all, his father drove many a race at the special venue, and won a few as well. Mick Schumacher simply focused on ‘collecting data’ Ahead of his practice debut, Mick Schumacher has spoken about the paramount duty he will perform in FP1. And it is something that displays hints of an upcoming driver with intelligence and maturity. Speaking in an interview with RTL, he said, “Hopefully it won’t be too wet so that we can go out. Otherwise there will be more waiting.” Formula One F1 – Tuscan Grand Prix – Mugello, Scarperia e San Piero, Italy – Mick Schumacher...
    Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, a left-wing group partially funded by billionaire George Soros, is calling for the dismantling of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), an agency created in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack on U.S. soil that killed 3,000 people. Romero wrote a commentary in USA Today on Sunday where he claimed getting rid of the agency was necessary to “preserve our freedoms and our security.” Romero made his argument by repeating the false narrative that federal police from DHS were a “paramilitary” unit sent to Portland, Oregon, in early July to quell violent protests that had continued nightly for weeks and that those officers “abducted” peaceful protesters and put them in unmarked cars. In an interview with Breitbart News, Mark Morgan, Acting COO and Commissioner of DHS’s Customs and Border Protection (CBP), said bolstering federal officers to protect federal property and to enforce federal law is a “common practice.” “To surge federal law enforcement agents to high crime areas, this is nothing new,” Morgan said. “I’ve participated...
    Kirby Smart, Georgia Bulldogs. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) Georgia football’s indoor practice facility is really coming along nicely. It’s not a finished product, but Georgia football’s indoor practice facility sure looks pretty. For years, SEC rivals would negatively recruit against the Georgia Bulldogs because they didn’t have an indoor practice facility. Yes, they had this little rinky-dink half-sized looking adjacent to the Butts-Mehre Building, but now we’re about to let the Big Dawgs eat! Here is the latest teaser video of how the state of the art indoor practice facility is coming along in Athens.
