    A judge issued a gag order Tuesday at the Travis Scott concert hearing so the case can be 'tried in the courtroom and not on social media' as dozens of lawyers representing hundreds of victims and their families met in court for the first time.   The November 2021 tragedy at the Astroworld Festival left 10 dead and many more injured.   'This case should be tried in the courtroom and not on social media or with press releases or other statements to the media,' Judge Kristen Hawkins said.   Hawkins clarified her order, saying lawyers could tell the media about factual issues that happen in court, but she didn't want attorneys to make their cases in the court of public opinion and possibly influence the jury pool.     At the hearing Tuesday, dozens of attorneys were in court to represent the ten Scott fans who were killed and thousands more who were injured.  It was the first time the lawyers, handling the nearly 500 lawsuits, had met in court after the cases were consolidated before one judge. Most of Tuesday's court hearing was spent...

    On Thursday, NBC San Diego Political Reporter Priya Sridhar reported that Cajon Valley Union School District Superintendent Dr. David Miyashiro told her that the family from the school district stuck in Afghanistan has had problems due to the fact that they’re 15 hours away from Kabul and that communication has also been an issue because they’ve been moving around in an attempt to avoid the Taliban. Sridhar said, “Now, the superintendent of the school district tells me that the issue with the one family who’s still in Afghanistan is they’re about 15 hours by car from Kabul. He also said that communication has been an issue. They’ve all been communicating through WhatsApp. But he said as they were trying to get all of those eight families out, the families were all moving around from house to house and trying to avoid the Taliban.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    Teachers have the National Education Association. Seniors are represented by the AARP and gun owners by the National Rifle Association. Other interest groups have their political action committees and industries their lobbyists. Families need their own champion, said Terry Schilling, who helped create Big Family to counter the teaching of transgender issues and critical race theory to children, along with other policies and ideas that he claims harm families. “In D.C., everyone’s got a lobbyist in the Capitol or a political action committee to defend their interests and take out their enemies and help their advocates — except for the family,” Schilling, the president of the American Principles Project, told the Washington Examiner in an interview. “We want to change that. We want to get families organized and engaged in politics.” "It's really this reorienting the family to become a political institution as well as a social [one]," he said. Underpinning Big Family is a rejection of the notion that politicking on social issues is a losing strategy for conservatives, Schilling said. “It’s sort of...
    By KIRSTEN GRIESHABER, Associated Press BERLIN (AP) — A new survey of children in Germany suggests that the stress and depravations of the coronavirus pandemic are taking a toll on their mental health, especially among those from underprivileged families, researchers said Wednesday. The study by the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf found about one in three German children are suffering from pandemic-related anxiety, depression or are exhibiting psychosomatic symptoms like headaches or stomach aches. Children and teenagers from poorer families and those with migrant roots are disproportionally affected, according to the study. “Children who were doing well before the pandemic and feel sheltered and comfortable within their families will get through this pandemic well,” said Ulrike Ravens-Sieberer, the head of the study and research director of the children’s psychiatric clinic at the university hospital. “However, we need better concepts to especially support and strengthen the mental and emotional health of children from at-risk families.” she said. Particularly during lockdowns “schools need to keep in regular contact with the students and express appreciation and attention," she said. "Otherwise there is the danger...

    PARK RIDGE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Seeing a spike in food insecurity, there’s a new effort to help stop hunger in New Jersey. Across the state, the number of hungry people has risen 56% since the start of the pandemic. One thousand boxes of food were unloaded Tuesday morning at the Park Ridge food pantry. Officials say the pantry went from helping 30 families before the pandemic to now helping up to 125 families a week. “We’ve seen other pantries throughout the county going from 20 families to 250 families throughout this pandemic. The food insecurity issues are our neighbors’ issues and we’re all here to help,” Bergen County Commissioner Tracy Zur said. Officials say due to the pandemic, food insecurity is projected to increase by 71% in Bergen County, impacting more than 60,000 residents.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Mayor Jack Young announced a $30 million eviction prevention program on Wednesday, meant to help keep Baltimore families in their homes as the eviction moratorium expired this week. The program, set to begin in late September, builds on the city’s Temporary Rent Support program to give more extended support to families, the mayor said Wednesday. Baltimore residents can qualify if they have a household income of 50 percent or less of the average medium income, prove their issues are related to COVID-19 and provide proof of pending eviction proceedings. The percentage of Baltimore residents receiving food stamps jumped 25 percent to 33 percent from March to June, while the percentage of residents falling behind on rent during that time nearly tripled, from 10 percent to 28 percent, city officials said Wednesday. The program will give financial assistance to cover past-due bills and up to six months of back rent, relocation assistance for those who are evicted or forced to leave an inhabitable unit, legal assistance for eviction proceedings and general resources during the pandemic, officials said. “The impact...
    KNOWLTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — As students adjust to remote learning, many in New Jersey are still struggling to connect to the internet. And in many rural communities, families lack access to Wi-Fi. As CBS2’s Aundrea Cline-Thomas reported Tuesday, local leaders are trying to change that. A DSL internet connection would no longer cut it for Dr. John Bertoldo’s veterinary practice. His practice in Knowlton Township, was able to upgrade, but that’s not the case for everyone. “We’re much luckier than some of our surrounding neighbors that are off the beaten path,” Bertoldo said. That includes Mayor Adele Starrs, who is managing a slow connection. “With four children trying to use Zoom for remote classes and it’s just unacceptable, really,” Starrs said.
