    Getty Cooper Kupp versus the Vikings on December 26, 2021. There will be wide receivers everywhere who will use Los Angeles Rams Pro Bowler Cooper Kupp as their inspiration heading into the upcoming season. And that includes wideouts who have already tasted their own Pro Bowl experience. Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings happens to be one of them influenced by watching Kupp lead the NFL in all three major receiving stats — telling The Ringer that the Super Bowl 56 Most Valuable Player gives him hope for his own breakout ’22 campaign. Jefferson Explains Why Kupp Motivates Him The 23-year-old is already in the elite tier of young wideouts, having gone to the Pro Bowl in both seasons he’s been in the league. But Jefferson told The Ringer NFL Podcast that watching what Kupp did a season ago fuels his excitement. Why? Because Jefferson’s newest head coach Kevin O’Connell once helped call plays that fed Kupp the football. “Just seeing what Cooper Kupp did last year, that gives me so much hope, gives...
    DENVER (CBS4)– History was made on Thursday, after the Senate confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court. She becomes the first black woman confirmed to the highest court. It’s a historic moment some Black law school students in Colorado are still trying to process. WASHINGTON, DC – APRIL 07: U.S. President Joe Biden congratulates Ketanji Brown Jackson moments after the U.S. Senate confirmed her to be the first Black woman to be a justice on the Supreme Court in the Roosevelt Room at the White House on April 07, 2022 in Washington, DC. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) “It shows that we’re moving towards a world that looks just like the rest of the country does,” said Essence Duncan, a second-year law student at the University of Colorado. For many students of color, they’ve never seen someone who looks like them serve on the highest court of the land. “I remember talking to my sister and being like ‘it’s time,’ and she had friends that were like ‘I’m balling my eyes out, I’m ready, I’m so excited,...
    (CNN)To explain the plot of the recent Pixar movie "Turning Red," I told my 10-year-old twins before we watched it: "It's about a girl who goes Hulk when she's mad. Instead of turning green, she turns into a red panda." Vanessa Hua "Do we know anyone else who...goes Hulk?" I added. They laughed sheepishly. My husband and I have talked to our kids about the importance of emotional regulation, especially amid the stresses of the pandemic. The movie is a classic coming of-age story, with an allegorical twist. Every time she gets riled up, she transforms into a cuddly, gigantic red panda.Read More "Is it set in China?" asked the twin currently obsessed with geopolitics and warfare. "A Chinatown," I said. In Toronto's Chinatown. "Like the one we visited for Chinese New Year." In San Francisco, where we live, we'd stocked up for the holiday, buying snacks and firecrackers that we later set off on our driveway. My sons are multiracial -- half Chinese, half Serbian and Northern European. Throughout their childhood, with varying degrees of success, I've attempted to...
    Former President Barack Obama. The first time I got involved in politics in a real way was the 2008 presidential election. A friend of mine convinced me to volunteer to make calls in support of this junior senator from Illinois named Barack Obama. I must admit, as much as I loved the idea of playing a part in getting the first Black president elected, I thought there’s no way in hell this guy can win. I mean, his middle name is Hussein. No way white people will vote for this guy after 9/11.  But despite my cynicism, I allowed my friend to drag me to a phone bank training session on a Saturday morning. It started at about 8 AM and ended at around 1 PM. I went in to the nondescript grey building surrounded by warehouses with doubt—and came out with hope.  The training sessions were filled with young, energetic, and extremely knowledgable 20-somethings. I was a mom with a middle-schooler at home and felt in many ways out of place.  But by the time it was over (and I know it sounds corny), I was hyped and determined that win...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — In the early days of the Me Too movement, many Black women say they felt like their stories were going untold, but with the conviction of R. Kelly, one of the biggest R&B artists of our time, there’s now a sense their voices are being heard. Lizzette Martinez, known to the court as Jane Doe #9, says she was just 17 when R. Kelly sexually abused her. READ MORE: R. Kelly Found Guilty Of All Counts In Sex Trafficking, Racketeering TrialHer reaction to Monday’s verdict? “It’s just a really great feeling to finally feel like we matter. We were heard,” she said. It was one of the most prominent trials of the Me Too era. RESOURCES: Domestic And Sexual Violence Resources Me Too International released a statement, saying in part the verdict was “monumental because Black women and Black children were believed. A predator preyed on them for years and got away with it because our society is quick to minimize our suffering and abuse.” They added, “This moment belongs to the countless Black women who...
    PILSEN — For years, Esmeralda Zaragoza wanted to open a family-owned grocery store with a small butcher shop counter, fresh produce and made-to-order juices and milkshakes.  After passing the “for rent” sign at the closed Carniceria La Huacana’s for months, Zaragoza decided it was her chance to act on her dream. Last month, nearly a year after making the first call about the space, Zaragoza opened Mi Mandado Carniceria, 2021 W. Cermak Road. She said she hopes to provide a comforting space for Pilsen residents and others venturing into the neighborhood. “This is exactly how I’ve wanted my store to be,” Zaragoza said.  Longtime Pilsen resident Esmeralda Zaragoza opened Mi Mandado Carniceria, 2021 W. Cermak Road at the shuttered La Huacana grocery store last month. Mi Mandado offers fresh produce, homemade salsas, sour cream and pastries. The butcher shop has a selection of beef, pork, chicken and chorizo.  At a separate counter, Zaragoza sells made-to-order juices, milkshakes and smoothies, as well as hamburgers, sandwiches, hot dogs, nachos and more. Zaragoza hopes her emphasis on fresh products will bring locals into her shop...
    There has been a lot of controversy around the new Alzheimer’s drug aducanumab. As someone living with early stage Alzheimer’s, I have a lot of feelings around this. Some background: I worked in technology since I graduated from college. I spent most of my years at Intel Corporation, managing and leading teams and coaching and leading others to help them find their true purpose in life. In 2012, I started struggling at work and had a hard time remembering conversations. I started down the long path of getting a diagnosis and, in June 2016, after many doctor visits and imaging scans, I was diagnosed with early-stage, early-onset Alzheimer’s. My family and I were devastated, but I picked myself up and started a new career, one where my sole mission is to help us find a cure for Alzheimer’s and to remove the stigma of this disease. I’ve spent many hours at UCSF Memory and Aging Center and have been involved in two clinical trials. I hope to continue to be part of finding better treatments, and that takes me to...
    It's been over a year for thousands of families who have waited for answers and accountability for the reckless leadership of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. There have been many days where we’ve wanted to give up, but then a new day arrives, and somehow the strength comes again to fight another day.   After reading about Cuomo’s $10K a ticket fundraiser this week – and all those who attended, seemingly unbothered by the fact that the man they continue to cash in on is under four separate investigations and an impeachment probe – a new poll gave me a glimmer of hope. The latest Siena College Research Institute poll – one that has always been very favorable to the governor despite all of his scandals – reveals that for the first time in his tenure, more than 60 percent of New York voters say they would rather see Cuomo resign immediately or not run again. (In the poll, 23 percent said he should resign immediately, 39 percent said he should serve out his term but not seek reelection, and...
    Many patient advocacy groups representing the 6 million Americans suffering from Alzheimer’s disease are hailing the FDA’s approval of a new treatment for Alzheimer’s, aducanamab – the first since 2003. Some in the medical community have opposed the decision, arguing that the therapeutic benefit has not been established.  Nevertheless, doctors may now prescribe the drug, and additional research will be needed to confirm its efficacy at slowing cognitive decline, which it appears to do, at least modestly, for some patients. Having cared for hundreds of Alzheimer’s patients over my 40-year career and been intimately involved as a researcher since the earliest days of investigation into this disease, I understand the concerns. But I’ve firmly landed on the side of hope and excitement for what this milestone promises for the future.  Today, there are approximately 120 clinical trials underway, several of which may prove critical in combating the disease— more than half tackling a variety of aging-related pathways. This makes me very optimistic about the potential for future breakthroughs.  Alzheimer’s research has progressed dramatically in the last decade. Before then, researchers...
    BOSTON (CBS) – Many families were on Boston Common Monday, standing in solidarity against Asian hate. The recent rise in violence fueled by the COVID-19 pandemic weighs heavily on their minds and hearts, as they’re forced to have painful conversations. “When she’s at a playground and someone calls her the China virus or tells her doesn’t belong, that she understands how to stand up for herself and understands to be proud of who she is,” Tien-Tien Chan said. “Having a young child makes it so important to raise [her] with empathy, compassion, and with a lot of pride in being Asian American.” READ MORE: Were Just Not There Yet: Some Vaccinated Mass.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — As ballots are being tabulated in several states to determine the number of electoral votes needed for President Donald Trump or Democratic challenger Joe Biden to win the presidency, Chicago’s mayor is hoping for a new administration. Asked during her COVID-19 news conference, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said a Biden administration would approach the pandemic differently than what she said is happening with the Trump’s response. “I have great confidence in Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. I think that they are committed to, first and foremost, really taking charge of this horrible pandemic, coming up with real strategies and listening to local officials, like mayors. So that gives me a great deal of hope,” Lightfoot said. The mayor added that there are other issues the Democratic challenger could handle better than Trump. “A new administration, if it is Biden-Harris, is going to be walking into a lot of deep problems. COVID-19 being one of them. An economy that is on the verge of collapse, a loss of standing in the world, environmental hazards. I mean, the list is...

It gives me hope.” The rally was also combined with the March For Liberty and Justice For All – a separate protest that merged with the youth march at the Capitol.
