    An off-campus co-op for students at the University of California, Berkeley named the 'Person of Color Theme House' has banned white guests from entering common areas of the house. A list of house rules revealed that occupants were told 'many POC moved here to be able to avoid white violence and presence, so respect their decision of avoidance if you bring white guests.'  While the student house aims to have an 'inclusive' environment, the rules specifically state 'white guests are not allowed in common spaces,' according to the list, which was posted on Reddit.   The accommodation, which is located close to Berkeley's campus, is a five-story, 30-room home that can house up to 56 students. But the 'rules' which were leaked on social media have caused outrage - with many people slamming the rules as 'racist' as others came forward and revealed their experience living in the co-op.   One mixed-race Reddit user, who claimed to have lived at the house, said that their 'presence as a light skinned person was not received well.' They said house members called them slurs...
    Josh Allen wouldn’t let Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cruise to a lopsided victory after the Buffalo Bills fell behind by 21 points at halftime. Allen led an impressive comeback with his arm and legs to force overtime before Brady connected with Breshad Perriman for a 58-yard catch-and-run touchdown to win it. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Several other teams didn’t show Buffalo’s fight on Sunday. Most had less at stake. Seven games were decided by 15 or more points, including five by at least 20. Considering the teams on the losing end, it wasn’t a surprise. The Lions (1-11-1), Jaguars (2-11), Texans (2-11), Jets (3-10) and Giants (4-9) were outscored 158-53.

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Josh Allen wouldn’t let Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cruise to a lopsided victory after the Buffalo Bills fell behind by 21 points at halftime.

    DENVER (CBS4)– It’s a partnership made in television: Casa Bonita was the setting of a South Park 2003 episode. Now the show’s creators are buying the popular Denver metro area landmark if the bankruptcy court gives its approval. Trey Parker and Matt Stone (credit: State of Colorado) Former University of Colorado students Matt Stone and Trey Parker announced it on Gov. Jared Polis’ live stream on Friday morning: The news was welcomed at the restaurant where tours are given hourly. One of those taking the tour was Mark Keenan. “It’s a fun place,” he told CBS4’s Rick Sallinger, who asked, “How about the food?” Keenan replied, “It’s terrible.” A popular opinion, it seems.

(credit: Evan Semón/CBS) During the conversation with Parker and Stone, Polis remarked, “The food could be a little better.” Matt Stone responded, “I think it could be a little more than a little better.” Trey Parker added, “You know it’s bad when I took my daughter when she was four and she was like...
            by Scott McClallen  On Thursday morning, Michigan Republicans welcomed Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s State of the State Address theme of “common ground,” but said they’re looking forward to action. “The tone set is exactly what I think people Michiganders want to hear. But we need action and not just words and politics,” House Speaker Jason Wentworth, R-Clare, said. Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, R-Clarklake, said Whitmer not wearing her mask in the remote speech was probably the most important part. “We need to move the state out of the state of controlling fear and one of trust and hope and opportunity,” Shirkey said. “It doesn’t mean that masks aren’t important. It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t wear masks, especially when we’re in places where people are.” The House Republican COVID-19 recovery plan would give $363 million to districts that commit to reopening in-person instruction by Feb. 15, which is only 18 days away. “Our goal is to get kids in the classroom as fast as possible. And I think incentivizing that goal helps schools speed that up,”...
    'I very much look forward to working with you for our shared values,' said one world leader, echoing the common theme. World leaders congratulated U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on his victory, cheering it as an opportunity to fortify global democracy and celebrating the significance of Americans having their first female vice president. Although Donald Trump did not concede defeat, relief was a common theme expressed in many parts of the world to the news that his reelection bid had failed. "The Americans have chosen their President. Congratulations @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris! We have a lot to do to overcome today's challenges. Let's work together!" said French President Emmanuel Macron on Twitter.
    By STEPHEN WHYNO, AP Hockey Writer The morning after Phillip Danault's first career three-penalty game, agitating Montreal teammate Brendan Gallagher turned to him and joked, “I'm rubbing off on you.” Judging from the first few days of the NHL's restart, it looks as if Gallagher is rubbing off on a lot of players. Referees' arms must be tired after calling 116 minor penalties through 12 games — an average of almost 10 that's a 52% increase from the regular season. Perhaps officials are seeing more in empty arenas without the distraction and noise of fans, though players and coaches in the midst of the parades to the penalty box have other theories. They chalk it up to a combination of rust from months off and players' natural adjustment to the standard of officiating that's being set in the chase for the Stanley Cup. “We’ve been off as long as any offseason or longer, and (referees are) just re-establishing their game,” Boston Bruins agitator extraordinaire Brad Marchand said. “I also think that guys are excited to get back on the ice...
    The mayor of Chicago suggested sexism is behind President Trump's decision to send federal law enforcement into cities that have seen a spike in violent crime since the beginning of the summer. “The president has been on a campaign now for some time against Democratic mayors across the country,” said Mayor Lori Lightfoot during a Wednesday news conference. “Whether it’s me, whether it’s Keisha Lance Bottoms in Atlanta, whether it’s Muriel Bowser in Washington, D.C., whether it’s Jenny Durkan in Seattle — do you see a common theme here?" Trump, on Wednesday, announced he has instructed the Justice Department to deploy federal police to cities such as Chicago and Kansas City to quell an outbreak of violent crime. “This bloodshed must end. This bloodshed will end,” Trump said. More than 400 people have been murdered in Chicago this year alone, and this week, 14 people were injured in a mass shooting outside a funeral home on the city's South Side. “President Trump has made clear: The federal government stands ready and willing to assist any...
