    MILLIONS of food stamp claimants are once again getting an automatic benefit boost as 18 states have so far extended their support for February. The extension comes as the Covid pandemic continues to hit throughout the country. 1Around 42million people currently receive food stampsCredit: Getty In April 2021, USDA announced that the federal government would provide an extra $1billion per month to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This program is also more widely known as food stamps. These extra funds were set to help an estimated 25million people in low-income households struggling to put food on the table due to the pandemic. They were initially set to expire in September 2021. However, many states have continued to provide this resource. In January, the vast majority of states extended the emergency SNAP benefits. While the amount of extra money eligible families may receive generally depends on family size, $95 is the minimum households must be given.

    TWO million Americans could get automatic checks worth $970 under a new proposal in New York. Governor Kathy Hochul is looking to use $2.2billion to provide property tax rebate checks to homeowners in the state. 1New York homeowners could be receiving new property tax credit checksCredit: Getty Images - Getty Mrs Hochul revealed her plans during her budget proposal on January 18, her first since taking office in 2021.

The property tax relief would be known as the Homeowner Tax Rebate Credit and would be provided to low- and middle-income families. Seniors would also be eligible, as would New York City homeowners. Mrs Hochul is calling for this one-year program as an extension to the existing Property Tax Relief Credit Program, which expired after 2019. The benefit would be a percentage of the homeowners' existing STAR benefit, according to the proposal. Most read in MoneyMEAL DEAL How to apply for EBT and...

    MILLIONS of drivers in Michigan are set to receive automatic payments worth $400 per vehicle by May. The cash could come in handy as inflation continues to increase, with no fourth stimulus check in sight. 1Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association approves funds for auto insurance policyholders In December, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced that the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) had approved a $3billion refund for auto insurance policyholders. It came after it recorded a $5billion budget surplus. Mrs Whitmer said at the time: "Michiganders have paid into the catastrophic care fund for decades, and I am pleased that the MCCA developed this plan so quickly after unanimously approving my request to return surplus funds to the pockets of Michiganders." The surplus funds will be turned over by the MCCA to the insurance companies operating in Michigan by March 9, 2022. The insurers are then required to issue refunds via check or ACH deposit to consumers as quickly as possible, but no later than May 9, 2022. Drivers do not have to apply to claim the checks as refunds will be...
    MILLIONS of Americans are getting extra food stamps paid out automatically this month - with many payments going out this week.

    FEDERAL lawmakers have discussed automating stimulus payments, but state governments are already implementing the concept - and some residents can expect to receive checks this week. Automatic stabilizers seek to send funds directly to Americans when certain economic conditions are met, without needing approval by local legislators or lawmakers in Congress. 1Automatic stimulus payments are going out in multiple states Adam Ruben, director of the Economic Security Project, discussed the idea of “automatic stabilizers” with members of Congress in May. He said: “Putting in place these kinds of triggers would smooth out the recovery and no one is left at the mercy of Washington gridlock in future recessions.” Throughout the pandemic, Democrats and Republicans have struggled to agree on Covid relief measures. Newark, New Jersey recently expanded its UBI program to 400 residents. As a result, a total of $12,000 will be given to each resident through the program over two years. Half of the program's participants will receive $250 on a biweekly basis. The remaining half will receive two payments of $3,000 each year, according to a statement by the city. Eligible participants will be over...
    A LACK of sleep changes how ­people walk, say scientists. In tests asking them to keep a rhythm on a treadmill, tired students were found to stumble slightly or drag their feet without realising. 1In tests asking them to keep a rhythm on a treadmill, tired students were found to stumble slightly or drag their feet without realising But those who caught up on their sleep with naps or long lie-ins at the weekend could walk better, even if several days had passed since their last proper kip. And those who consistently slept well had much better motor control. Prof Hermano Krebs, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, US, said: “Scientifically, it wasn’t clear that almost-automatic activities like walking would be influenced by lack of sleep. Compensating for sleep could be an important strategy.” Researcher Arturo Forner-Cordero added: “The results show that gait is not an automatic process. It can be affected by sleep deprivation. “Ideally, everyone should sleep eight hours a night. “But if we can’t, then we should compensate as much and as regularly as possible.” Animal experiments...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The sound of automatic gunfire is becoming all too common in some Twin Cities neighborhoods. That has the ATF actively searching for people who have devices that turn regular weapons into semi-automatic or automatic weapons. Field agents are finding more of those devices being used in crimes across the state. READ MORE: Recently Opened Fridley Brewery Wins Gold Medal For German Dark Lager The destruction left behind from multiple rounds being fired is evident in shootings that are plaguing north Minneapolis and Uptown. “We have encountered them and we are encountering them more frequently than in the past,” said Jeff Reed, assistant special agent in charge of the St. Paul Field Office of the ATF. Reed says auto sears are being used to transform weapons so a single pull of trigger automatically shoots more than one shot, without manual reloading. “Some of the devices are very easily attached to a firearm or a weapons platform, sometimes in 60 seconds,” Reed said. A video supplied by the ATF shows a converted Glock 9mm pistol and an AR-15 firing...
    (CNN)A federal judge has ruled that California's 32-year-old assault weapons ban is unconstitutional -- and that the state cannot limit civilian access to weapons he considered to be "fairly ordinary, popular, modern rifles."Judge Roger Benitez wrote that the weapons under California's ban were not "extraordinary weapons lying at the outer limits of Second Amendment protection," writing that "(t)he banned 'assault weapons' are not bazookas, howitzers, or machineguns.""Those arms are dangerous and solely useful for military purposes," he continued. "Instead, the firearms deemed 'assault weapons' are fairly ordinary, popular, modern rifles."The ruling comes as the US contends with an uptick in deaths from gun violence and repeated weekend spates of mass shootings -- and as President Joe Biden is urging a deeply divided Congress to consider, again, legislation to help avert the violence.Most of the legislative solutions under negotiation in Washington today focus on background checks. The federal assault weapons ban expired in 2004 -- but, along with California, several states have passed assault weapon bans, albeit with varying lists and definitions of which and what types of firearms qualify as...
    Vaccine could be available to all this summer; SNL faces backlash for joke about Israeli vaccination effort: live COVID-19 updates President Biden to visit storm-ravaged Texas on Friday Maybe early in the pandemic, you first postponed your 2020 vacation to July, and then from July to March. Now, you know you should just wait and see, but you can’t help yourself and went ahead and booked for August. © Alex Wong/Getty Images President Biden addresses changes to the Paycheck Protection Program on February 22. That’s basically what Congress has been doing with economic aid such as unemployment insurance during the Covid-19 outbreak. Federal lawmakers have been picking arbitrary end dates for much-needed support, more or less guessing at the end of the pandemic for nearly a year. And it appears that in the latest relief package, set to pass Congress in the coming weeks, they’re about to make the same mistake again: Instead of phasing out benefits when the economy gets better, Congress is setting up yet another cliff later this year.

    Lack of health services and transportation impede access to vaccine in communities of color Primary Care Doctors Feel Left Out of Vaccine Rollout Stimulus checks are so 19th Century: Give Americans automatic, electronic cash © Getty Images OUTSIDE THE BOX Load Error Early in the COVID-19 pandemic last year, just one month after dropping out of the U.S. presidential race, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) took a clear and bold stance for families: $2,000 monthly checks until the crisis is over. Sanders’s fight for direct checks is right, as checks are a much needed lifeline for families in the midst of the COVID-induced recession. But there’s more that must be done. So let’s ask the bigger questions here. Why on Earth in the year 2021 are we relying on checks? And why do we have a political bun-fight over this issue every time it happens? First, checks. Really? Practically every American has a smartphone. There are tons of banking apps from Paypal to Zelle to Venmo. The U.S. Treasury has a website called Treasury Direct that allows anyone...
            by Jake Dima  California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, President-elect Joe Biden’s pick to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, said AR-15s are akin to military-grade weapons and not useful for self defense in a 2019 court filing. The AG’s statements were included in a court case that challenged California’s gun ban titled Rupp v. Becerra, in which multiple state residents sued government officials to overturn the prohibition of certain semi-automatic firearms. Becerra, an advocate for the Affordable Care Act, was announced as Biden’s pick to lead HHS Sunday, according to the New York Times. “Assault rifles may be banned because they are, like the M-16, ‘weapons that are most useful in military service’’; and ‘they are also not ‘in common use’ for lawful purposes like self-defense,’” Becerra wrote in defense of California’s weapon ban. The AG also argued, citing Kolbe v. Hogan, a prominent gun case, that an M-16, a military rifle capable of firing fully automatic, is less lethal than an AR-15, which is incapable of transitioning to fully automatic fire, the court document read. Becerra...
    Volatile elements could come together at Denver's Civic Center Park on the afternoon of Saturday, October 10. A so-called "Patriot Muster" and the BLM-Antifa Soup Drive are scheduled to get under way within thirty minutes of each other at the location. Materials for the Patriot Muster, the subject of several segments on KNUS radio over the past week, note that the event is intended to be peaceful, but there are many reasons for concern. The groups clashed during a pro-police rally in July at the same location, and Denver Police pepper-sprayed some of the demonstrators. Moreover, Patriot Muster organizer John "Tig" Tiegen, whose Facebook profile photo shows him wearing a wide smile and a freedom-themed T-shirt and holding an automatic weapon, is part of an organization called the United American Defense Force, whose website includes lines like this: "The enemies are promising to come to your neighborhood." Tiegen did not respond to multiple Westword interview requests. But a spokesperson for the Denver Communists, one of several organizations sponsoring the soup drive, acknowledges that the timing of its efforts, slated to begin at 1:30...
