    Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning to install a massive Black Lives Matter mural right outside Trump Tower in Manhattan, The Post has learned. Plans for the mural — which will be painted in yellow block letters along Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets — come as the city grapples with troubling surges in gun violence and illegal firework activity. “Obviously he is doing it to antagonize the president,” a source said. “This is what he is concerned about while the city burns. What an amateur politician.” The source said the mayor’s office reached out to the Department of Transportation about the feasibility of the mural — but it was mentioned that de Blasio wanted it done. De Blasio hatched the idea a few days after Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser had “Black Lives Matter” painted along a street leading to the White House, according to a second source. The plan was finalized last week — after locations for the other murals across the five boroughs were announced on Juneteenth, the source said. The slogan will be stenciled outside...
    All-Star outfielder Charlie Blackmon of the Colorado Rockies has become the first Major League Baseball player known to have tested positive for the coronavirus. A person familiar with Blackmon’s situation confirmed the test result to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because there was no official announcement. The Denver Post first reported Blackmon’s condition, saying Tuesday that three Rockies players had tested positive. Blackmon is a four-time All-Star slugger who hit .314 with 32 home runs and 86 RBIs last season. He turns 34 on July 1, the day players are set to begin reporting for the resumption of spring training. Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred imposed a 60-game season Tuesday night after failed financial negotiations between owners and players. The season that’s been delayed by the pandemic will begin either July 23 or 24. The Philadelphia Phillies have said seven players have tested positive for the virus without identifying any of them. Several other teams have said they also have players who have tested positive. The Post reported Blackmon tested positive last week after workouts at Coors Field in...
    By Devjyot Ghoshal and Huizhong Wu NEW DELHI/BEIJING (Reuters) - Indian and Chinese military commanders have agreed to disengage forces facing off over a disputed stretch of border where a clash last week left 20 Indian soldiers dead, an Indian government source in New Delhi said on Tuesday. Speaking in Beijing, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said the two sides had agreed to take measures to ease tensions. "There was a mutual consensus to disengage," the Indian source said, commenting on the outcome of a meeting between commanders on border on Monday that lasted almost 11 hours. China's Zhao described recent media reports of 40 Chinese casualties in the clash as "fake news". China has not disclosed how many casualties its side suffered in the brutal fighting on June 15, when soldiers beat each other with rocks and wooden sticks embedded with nails, while observing a long-held protocol to avoid using firearms. Troops from the nuclear-armed neighbours have been facing-off in several areas in the Ladakh region in the western Himalayas since last month, and the clash in the...
    Washington (CNN)Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are "pissed" at campaign manager Brad Parscale over his predictions of a much larger crowd than the one that turned out at the Tulsa rally Saturday night, according to a Trump campaign source. "Jared and Ivanka are pissed at Brad over promising on crowd size," the source said. A spokesperson for Kushner later Sunday said it's "false" that they are upset with Parscale. And Parscale declined to comment for this story. President Donald Trump and his allies had ginned up expectations for a massive crowd in the days leading up to the rally, with campaign officials telling CNN that more than 1 million people had registered to attend and one local official stating they expected 100,000 to show up near the arena. Parscale had touted the numbers himself on Twitter last Monday. Those crowds didn't appear Saturday, leading the campaign to abruptly abandon plans for the President to speak to an "overflow" area outside the arena. Just fewer than 6,200 people attended, the Tulsa Fire Department said Sunday. And six campaign staffers in Tulsa...
    Every team in Major League Baseball will shut its spring training camp over concerns about the coronavirus pandemic, a move that came in the wake of the Philadelphia Phillies announcing Friday five players had tested positive for COVID-19. The closures come while MLB owners and players try to negotiate a deal to begin the season, and raise the possibility the virus outbreak could scuttle all attempts at starting up this year. A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press the spring complexes in Florida and Arizona will temporarily close because of recent events. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because there wasn't an official statement. PHILLIES PLAYERS, STAFF MEMBERS TEST POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS AT SPRING TRAINING FACILITY The facilities will undergo a deep cleaning and disinfecting. No one will be permitted back inside without a negative test for the virus. Soon after the Phillies became the first known team to be affected by the outbreak, Toronto shuttered its site in Dunedin, Florida, about five miles from Philadelphia's camp in Clearwater. The Blue Jays said one player showed...
    The man who randomly attacked a 92-year-old woman in New York City is a serial offender who was on the streets after he only received appearance tickets for his last three arrests, law enforcement sources told Fox News. Rashid Brimmage, 31, is a registered sex offender who has been arrested 103 times, including for allegedly sexually abusing a 13-year-old. But he was given a court date for his three most recent arrests instead rather than be held in police custody until arraignment. He was busted most recently on Tuesday and charged with assault against the 92-year-old woman, whom he shoved on the afternoon of June 12 in the Manhattan neighborhood of Gramercy. MAN ACCUSED OF SHOVING ELDERLY NYC WOMAN HAS BEEN ARRESTED OVER 100 TIMES The victim, who identified herself to the New York Post as "Geraldine," was hospitalized and is now on the mend, but told the Post the random attack has left her "shaken." "My head still hurts where it was bleeding, where I hit the hydrant — or where he hit me, I don’t know,” she told the outlet. “Mainly it’s...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred met with players’ union head Tony Clark in Arizona in an attempt to restart talks aimed at starting the pandemic-delayed season. The meeting was disclosed to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the session who spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made. Clark has homes in the Phoenix area and in New Jersey, and he has been in Arizona since spring training was cut short on March 12. The meeting Monday was called at Manfred’s request, the person said. Major League Baseball has made three proposals to start the season and the union two, and the sides remain about $1 billion apart in guaranteed salary. Players originally were set to earn $4 billion in salaries before the coronavirus outbreak began. The union cut off talks Saturday, a day after MLB’s last proposal, and said additional negotiations were futile. Players told MLB to unilaterally set the schedule but Manfred said MLB would not while there was a threat of a grievance. The sides reached a deal on...
    A shopper at the Food Mart in Klein, Texas, was waiting to buy some items Sunday evening when a group tried to cut in line, KTRK-TV reported. "I looked over and said, 'There's a line for a reason,'" the shopper told the station. Image source: YouTube screenshot Words were exchanged, and he added to KTRK that the group mocked his hair and clothes.Then comes the beatdown After he paid and left, the group met him in the parking lot and took turns kicking and punching him, the station said. Image source: YouTube screenshot The victim told KTRK he just took the beating. Video of the attack shows he didn't fight back or protect himself. "I don't know what else I could do," he added to the station. "The fifth one at the end came out of the store after purchasing goods and came up to me and kicked me in the face and said, 'Black lives matter, [expletive].'"

    New York (CNN Business)The new chief executive of the US Agency for Global Media (USAGM) has yet to show up for his job, sources tell CNN, leaving work "piling up" as a top Democratic lawmaker warns of an impending rash of firings at the agency.Key staffers have been called to a meeting on Wednesday morning.A source at the agency and another source familiar with the situation said that conservative filmmaker Michael Pack, President Trump's pick to run the agency, has not been seen at work since his Senate confirmation in early June."No one knows" where he is, which is stirring anxiety among staffers, the agency source said.Trump's harshly critical comments about one of the agency's divisions, Voice of America, have heightened concerns that Pack will try to turn VOA into a propaganda machine.Read More"There has been no announcement" from Pack, the agency source said. "No emailed greetings to the staff. No one has had contact with him. No transition briefings, nor introductory meetings or any contact at all.""Two and a half weeks in and it just seems he's trying to...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants committee leaders in the House to bar any lawmaker who refuses to wear face masks from participating in committee hearings, a source told Fox News Tuesday. CLICK FOR THE LATEST ON THE CORONAVIRUS A senior Democratic aide familiar with the issue said the California Democrat is urging these leaders to invoke their authority under Rule 11 to enforce rules of decorum. Her office did not immediately respond to an after-hours call from Fox News. Pelosi has also asked the Congress’ Office of the Attending Physician to reassess the mask guidance due to the emerging body of evidence that shows its effectiveness in preventing the spread of coronavirus, the source said. The mask requirement is currently only for sustained committee activity in enclosed spaces but the physician has issued guidance to encourage masks. VideoThe call for masks comes as new research published in the Physics of Fluids, notes that face coverings alone do not prevent droplets of fluid that are projected by a cough, a discovery the researchers called "alarming." It adds to the importance to...
    A bicyclist was fatally struck by an MTA bus in Manhattan Tuesday morning, cops confirmed. The unidentified woman was riding her bike at Fifth Avenue and East 59th Street just before 9 a.m. when the BxM10 bus hit her, police said. Both the woman and the MTA bus were traveling in the same direction, with the bicyclist ahead — and authorities are probing how the smash-up happened, according to cops. Citing preliminary information, MTA source said that a female bicyclist “made contact” with the right rear of the southbound bus. The source called the incident an “active investigation.” The bus was occupied, but no one on board was initially aware the woman was struck, police said. The bus driver stayed on scene, and no one else was hurt, police said.
    Cellino & Barnes — the personal-injury law firm with the famous, annoyingly catchy “Don’t wait! Call 8!” jingle — is officially kaput after a three-year, knock-down, drag-out legal battle, a source close to the case said Monday. It was unclear who would get the rights to the former Buffalo firm’s commercial ditty, which includes the impossible-to-forget 1-800-888-8888 phone number. The notorious legal battle erupted in 2017 when lawyer Ross Cellino Jr. filed suit to break away from longtime law partner Stephen Barnes in an apparent disagreement over the company’s future. Cellino said in court papers at one point that Barnes screamed at him, “Why the f–k would you want to f–k this up when you are making $10 million a year?!” The battle gained such fame that it even spawned an off-Broadway play, “Cellino v. Barnes,” in Brooklyn last year — and led to the warring parties eventually using dueling jingles to drum up business as the case wound its way through court. After three years of duking it out legally, Cellino said in an affidavit in January that Barnes...
    NEW YORK (AP) — The chance that there will be no Major League Baseball season increased substantially Monday when the commissioner’s office told the players’ association it will not proceed with a schedule unless the union waives its right to claim management violated a March agreement between the feuding sides. MLB’s action was described to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the details who spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement was authorized. Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said ahead of last week’s amateur draft that the chance of a season was “100%.” “I can tell you unequivocally we are going to play Major League Baseball this year,” he said on ESPN’s draft broadcast. __ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press.

    Prince Andrew knows he screwed up. Andrew, the disgraced second son of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, believes the BBC interview that jumpstarted his public downward spiral is “a source of regret,” The Sunday Times of London reported. The former friend of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein also won’t cooperate with US authorities unless they offer him an “olive branch,” according to the report In November, Andrew, 60, tried to deny he had ever slept with Epstein’s sex slaves because he can’t sweat. Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre, however, insists the prince “sweat all over” her when she was forced to have sex with him in 2001. “There’s a slight problem with, with, with, with the sweating,” Andrew then told the BBC’s Emily Maitlis. “Because I have a peculiar medical condition, which is that I don’t sweat, or I didn’t sweat at the time … because I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenaline in the Falklands War when I was shot at.” Though the public was quick to call BS at the excuse, Andrew told his Queen mummy...
    Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that he has been denied access to interview an FBI agent and an FBI analyst who met with a key source for the Steele dossier who disavowed the salacious document. Graham has sought interviews with the FBI case agent and supervisory intelligence analyst to discuss their interview in January 2017 with the primary source for Christopher Steele, the former British spy who investigated the Trump campaign for Democrats. Steele’s source disputed many of the allegations attributed to him in the dossier, which the FBI used to obtain surveillance warrants against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. The FBI and Justice Department failed to disclose those red flags in applications to federal judges for authority to surveil Page. “I made a request to interview the case agent and the intel analyst…and they’re denying me the ability to do that,” Graham said in an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “I’m going to keep working the system,” Graham said. Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, did not say whether the FBI or the Justice Department...
    Sen. Lindsey Graham says that he plans on calling former FBI Director James Comey and former deputy director Andrew McCabe to testify before his Senate Judiciary Committee, because he doubts they were unaware the dossier compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele had been debunked before it was used to get a FISA warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. After former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein denied having knowledge of any altered documents or that the Steele dossier had been disavowed beforehand, McCabe responded by saying that Rosenstein’s claim that he was misled by him or anyone else at the FBI “are completely false.” Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that he wants to press McCabe on his knowledge regarding the FBI’s interview with Steele’s sub-source, who denied the information in the dossier. MCCABE ACCUSES ROSENSTEIN OF GIVING 'FALSE' TESTIMONY ON COMEY MEMOS “Here’s what I would say to Mr. McCabe,” Graham said. “In the warrant application by the FBI and Department of Justice to the FISA court, you said that the Russian sub-source was truthful and...
    Mike Max looked on as what appeared to be smoke came his way, unfamiliar with what he was about to endure. Until someone shouted. “Get down! It’s tear gas!” the WCCO-TV Channel 4 sports director heard late last Friday night. “Well, it was too late. We bit it, and we bit it big, myself and the crew. That knocked us out.” But only for a brief period. Soon after, Max and his crew were back in action, repositioning themselves back in the street to get a better view of the White Castle and Wells Fargo buildings burning near the Minneapolis Police Department’s 5th Precinct. A day earlier, Max was a sports reporter. Now, he was a go-to source for information on one of the biggest events in recent state history. Max left the office after completing the 10 p.m. newscast Thursday and went home. There, he viewed the rest of WCCO’s coverage that night, watching from afar as the MPD’s 3rd Precinct went up in flames. He had offered his services to WCCO-TV news...
    Adweek has a new owner, its fourth in six years. Shamrock Capital, which traces its roots back to the family of Roy Disney, wrapped up an acquisition of the print, Web and events business from Toronto-based buyout firm Beringer Capital. “Beringer came in with guns blazing and big plans for expansion, but once they realized how hard the business was, they turned into sellers,” said a source familiar with the company. Adweek has quietly been on the block for the past year, the source added. Jeff Litvack is expected to remain as Adweek chief executive, as are Stephanie Paterik, executive editor, and Lisa Granatstein, editor and SVP of programs. “We look forward to working with Adweek to continue to drive strong growth, both organically and through acquisitions.” said Laura Held, Partner at Shamrock Capital.
    NYPD cops deployed to protests are suiting up in motocross gear they’re calling “turtle uniforms” to protect against objects hurled at them as riots grip the city, a police source said Thursday. The elite crowd control bike cops began wearing the so-called Yaffa uniforms — which look plucked from the movie “Tron” with a hard plastic shell and cushioning along the spine and elbows — Monday after officers were injured during protests, the source said. Designed based on BMX bike gear and hockey equipment, the Fox Racing brand jacket shields cops from objects hurled at speeds up to 40 mph along with falls and other injuries. “It was created so you don’t break anything if you fall, or if you get with a projectile to absorb the blow,” the police source said. Cops have nicknamed the gear “Turtle Uniforms” due to a tortoise-like protective plastic shell that runs along the back side of the jacket. Stephen Yang The unorthodox uniform has already caused some confusion  — on the first night of protests, patrol cops thought the crowd control officers were...
    (CNN)An unprovoked stabbing attack of a New York Police Department officer that ended with two other officers with gunshot wounds and a suspect in critical condition is being investigated as a possible act of terrorism, a source familiar with the matter told CNN.Investigators do not believe the alleged acts are affiliated with any protests or looting seen across the city, the source said.The incident began around 11:45 p..m. Wednesday, when a man "casually" walked up to two officers at an anti-looting post in Brooklyn, took out a knife and stabbed an officer in the neck, Shea said during a press conference, citing video surveillance of the incident.Spat over NYC protests reignites long running feud between Cuomo and de Blasio "That officer was stabbed in the left side of his neck, thank God missing an artery, and is recovering here in stable condition at the hospital," he told reporters early Thursday morning.At around the same time, a uniformed sergeant and a police officer who were "a block or two away" heard shots fired and responded to the scene near the post...
    Authorities are investigating whether the stabbing of an NYPD cop in Brooklyn was a terror-inspired assault by an immigrant from the Balkans, according to sources and a report. The suspect — which sources told The Post was identified as Dzenan Camovic — recently shared anti-police sentiments in social media, according to NBC News, which cited a senior source. A senior law-enforcement source told The Post that the suspect’s “family may have nexus to terrorism.” The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force has joined the investigation into the stabbing. The feds arrived early Thursday at the suspect’s Flatbush apartment building. Agents could be seen at the address on East 22nd Street in an apparent search of evidence, near the scene of the violent confrontation on Church Avenue, where the melee unfolded at about 11:45 p.m. Wednesday. Members of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force also arrived Thursday morning at the scene, while police took photos of “ACAB” graffiti — an acronym meaning “All Cops Are Bastards.” The graffiti may be related to an anti-police demonstration that took place this past weekend in...
    All NYPD employees previously allowed to work from home during the coronavirus crisis must now report for duty in person — another “all hands on deck” move amid escalating citywide looting that has co-opted protests over George Floyd’s police-custody death in Minneapolis, law enforcement sources told the Post Tuesday. All full-duty uniformed cops previously issued “reasonable accommodations” during the pandemic must report for duty at the Police Academy in College Point, Queens, Tuesday afternoon, according to an internal memo obtained by the Post. All uniformed members who are not full-duty must report to their permanent commands, the memo says. “All hands on deck, and by all I mean even the COVID-19-vulnerable,” a police source said of the move. Another police source said that affected officers are “torn” about returning to work — frustrated about having to sit on the sidelines but “also still concerned about COVID and underlying conditions.” Even civilian members should “be prepared” to make a return, according to the memo. The decision comes as the NYPD has moved all its officers to 12-hour shifts this week, a...
    A semi-truck caught on video speeding toward hundreds of demonstrators on the I-35W in Minneapolis on Sunday immediately led to the driver being called out by police officials for "disturbing actions" against those protesting the death of George Floyd. However, a law enforcement official who witnessed the incident told Fox News on Monday that it appears the driver accidentally drove toward protesters and there have been no immediate indications of intended harm. The source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, pointed out that the driver, identified by the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office as Bogdan Vechirko, according to Fox 9, broke no barriers and that the road to the bridge was not cut off, as it should have been prior to the incident, which occurred just before 6 p.m. Moreover, the driver is said to have immediately tried to slow down when people came into view and appeared visibly shaken, the source said. State Corrections Commissioner Paul Schnell, however, said during a briefing Monday that the truck went around a traffic barrier to stay on the road. The Minnesota State Patrol said in a tweet that "disturbing actions" by...
    Carbone, the Village hotspot known for drawing crowds even during the pandemic, will open a pop-up in Southampton on Wednesday, Side Dish has learned. “We will be respecting all the rules. There will be no place to dine, even outside — just nightly takeaway, but we wanted to open where we are and where so many of our customers are,” the source said. “It made a lot of sense in this environment. We are really excited about it.” It’s not just that Carbone’s posh clientele is quarantining in the Hamptons, founders — chef Mario Carbone, Jeff Zalaznick and Rich Torrisi are too, sources said. Carbone “will be running the show, as always,” the source said of the former Elm Street catering hall, which is expected to be open nightly. The hope for the restaurant, where George and Amal Clooney once famously failed to get a last-minute reservation, is that a sit-down variety will occur when the quarantine ends. “Everything we offer in New York, from the rotating specials to the classics will all be available,” the source said of the menu, which will...

    YORK, Neb. (AP) - One of the most popular spots at York High School is the animal lab, which houses a wide variety of furry, feathered and scaly animals. In summer months, many of them go home with students as foster pets. After school went virtual, the animal lab’s summer fostering program had to start earlier than usual. “We were nervous about what to do if we can’t come to the school,” FFA adviser Jason Hirschfeld told the York News-Times. “We were very fortunate to have several kids keep some of our more high-maintenance animals.” TOP STORIES Asphyxiation not the cause of George Floyds death: Autopsy Cardi B: Looters who torched AutoZone, ransacked Target and liquor store had no choice Angela Stanton-King, Ga. woman pardoned by Trump, to challenge Rep.
