    Quentin Grimes is finally back. One of the Knicks top perimeter defenders was removed from the inactive list for the first time this season Wednesday night, with coach Tom Thibodeau declaring before tipoff against the Hawks that Grimes won’t be held to a minutes restriction. “We’ll see how it unfolds,” Thibodeau said. The coach then labeled Grimes’ status as “situational,” which, in the past, had been Thibodeau’s code word for very few minutes. “I think a lot of it is situational. So if your matchup is a guy off the dribble, he’s good at that,” Thibodeau said. “He’s also very good at catch-and-shoot, locking and trailing people, staying attached. So he’s got great feet, he’s got anticipation, he’s got strength, so I think that’s what makes him such a good defender. He doesn’t take any plays off. Full speed all the time. “Obviously he missed a lot of time,” Thibodeau added. “So he’ll be situational to start.” Grimes missed the opening six games — and three of the four preseason contests — because of a sore left foot, an ailment...

    A massive $27 billion class action lawsuit seeking accountability and justice for the families of the victims of the Robb Elementary School massacre that left 19 students and two teachers dead in Uvalde, Texas has been announced. Civil rights attorney Charles Bonner on Sunday said the class-action lawsuit will target law enforcement and a gun manufacturer of the weapon used in the shooting.  'What we intend to do to help serve this community and that is to file a $27 billion civil rights lawsuit under our United States Constitution, one-of-a-kind in the whole world,' Bonner of Bonner & Bonner Law told KSAT.

He also said the defendants  include gun manufacturer Daniel Defense and Oasis Outback, where the gunman bought the weapon used in...
    In this article UBER LYFT VIDEO3:2603:26Options Action: Huge action in Lyft and UberOptions ActionMajor ride-hailing stocks Uber and Lyft are still reeling after two very disappointing sets of quarterly results. Wednesday's bearish stock action — particularly Lyft's nearly 30% plunge — provoked an opposite response from options traders, many of whom seem to be betting that it quite literally can't get any worse for these names. Lyft's call options traded at a whopping 12 times their average daily volume Wednesday, while Uber's surged to four times their average daily volume, with many traders betting on double-digit percentage rallies in the near future. Massive trades in each of these companies stood out among the rest. "One of the trades that caught my eye was the purchase of the May 13 weekly 23-strike calls. Those were extremely active, and that included some institutional purchases, including one of just under 5,200 contracts for about 77 cents per contract," said Michael Khouw, chief investment officer at Optimize Advisors, regarding the action in Lyft on Wednesday on CNBC's "Fast Money." That trade equates to...
    The White House said Wednesday that it is "happy" to have conversations with lawmakers opposed to Joe Biden's plan for Title 42 but showed little indication the president would delay ending the pandemic-era migration restriction. Press secretary Jen Psaki fielded a number of questions on the topic during Wednesday's White House briefing and confirmed that the administration is still planning to "end Title 42 enforcement on May 23." "The president agrees that immigration in our country is broken. It's a system that is broken. There are a range of ideas out there in Congress — Democrats, Republicans, others, some who support a delay of Title 42 implementation, some who strongly oppose — and there are a range of other ideas of reforming our immigration system," Psaki continued. "This would all require congressional action. We're happy to have that conversation with them." The Department of Homeland Security predicted that both Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection will face a funding shortfall if migration surges as expected after Title 42 ends, but Psaki claimed the administration's plan to buttress...
    FOXBORO (CBS) — For the first time this season, Matt Turner took part in some training with the New England Revolution. The goalkeeper was back on the pitch for the Revs Wednesday in Foxboro. Turner has been sidelined since the preseason when he hurt his kicking foot during a friendly against LAFC, shortly after he dealt with a different foot issue from his time with the USMNT. The 27-year-old was all smiles as he participated in some drills on Wednesday, and his return to game action should come sometime in the near future.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — With the freezing temperatures in Chicago lately, a water main break is the last thing anyone wants to hear about. But one happened in the Grand Crossing neighborhood, and it has left a watery mess that has caused frustration and backup. READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Another Mild Day; Flurries, Snow Showers PossibleAs CBS 2’s Jermont Terry reported, the intersection of 83rd Street and Ingleside Avenue was left flooded Tuesday after days of below-freezing temperatures that are known to pose risks to water mains. Late Wednesday, residents on the block were without running water. City crews were on scene trying to fix the problem, and by 10 p.m., the floodwaters had receded and a sinkhole was visible. But an hour earlier, the water was more than ankle-high and was rising. “And it smells,” said Carol Chandler. “This is sewer water.” Those high above are safe, but Carol Chandler and other neighbors are trapped. “Our front door is blocked with water and the alley entrance way is blocked with water,” Chandler said.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The city is battling the worst COVID-19 wave in a year. The Bronx currently has the highest positivity rate and in some neighborhoods that number is near 50%.

    CHICAGO (AP) — The University of Chicago’s president is urging city officials and police to treat Chicago’s rising violence as a “public health crisis” following the fatal shooting of a Chinese student during an armed robbery near campus. Shaoxiong “Dennis” Zheng, 24, was standing on a sidewalk in a residential area Tuesday afternoon when witnesses said a gunman stepped from a car and Zheng appeared to struggle with the robber before a shot went off. The assailant returned to the car and fled, and Zheng was pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center. No arrests have been made in the killing in the Hyde Park neighborhood on the city’s South Side. University of Chicago President Paul Alivisatos said in a statement Wednesday expressing sadness over Zheng’s slaying that the university community and local residents “see a clear and urgent need to strengthen public safety.” “The violence afflicting Chicago is on the same scale as a public health crisis and demands a commensurate response,” he said in the statement that said the school has been in contact with the...
    The White House  jumped to the defense of Pete Buttigieg after a report broke that the Transportation secretary has been on paid paternity leave since mid-August, as his department comes under intense scrutiny for supply chain issues.  Federal employees are offered up to 12 weeks' paid parental leave, though Cabinet secretaries are not included in that, meaning President Biden had to sign off on the leave.  Buttigieg announced on Sept. 4 that he and his husband Chasten had adopted twins.  'Proud to work in an Administration that is fighting to make paid leave a reality for everyone, and with people like @SecretaryPete who are role models on the importance of paid leave for new parents,' press secretary Jen Psaki wrote on Twitter.    Meanwhile, Politico on Thursday revealed Buttigieg, 39, went on paternity leave in August and September after he and husband Chasten, 32, adopted twins.  A spokesman for the Department of Transportation said: 'For the first four weeks, he was mostly offline except for major agency decisions and matters that could not be delegated. 'He has been ramping up activities since...
    Corey Lewandowski is leaving his role as the head of a pro-Trump super PAC, just hours after allegations emerged he made unwanted sexual advances toward a GOP donor. Lewandowski, one of Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign managers, will be replaced by former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi in leading MAGA Action, a Trump spokesman said Wednesday evening. “Pam Bondi, the very talented and honorable frmr AG of FL, has our complete faith and confidence in taking over MAGA Action. Corey Lewandowski will be going on to other endeavors and we very much want to thank him for his service. He will no longer be associated with Trump World," said Taylor Budowich, the Trump spokesman. Lewandowski was named in a Politico report on Wednesday containing allegations by a female Trump donor, Trashelle Odom, that he made unwanted sexual advances at a Las Vegas charity event on Sept. 26. Odam said he "stalked" her that evening, and her attorney said Lewandowski repeatedly touched Odom, including on her leg and buttocks, and spoke to her in sexually explicit terms, including to talk about...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday President Joe Biden intended to keep Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley in his position despite reports that Milley went rogue under Biden’s predecessor. “How much agency does the president believe those in the chain of command should have when it comes to assessing whether an order is constitutional?” a reporter asked Psaki at Wednesday’s daily White House briefing. “What if someone serving this president feels there’s an order or policy that he views as contravening the Constitution?” Psaki replied with a subtle shot at former President Donald Trump, saying it was “the obligation of every chairman of the joint chiefs to prevent unlawful military action” and adding, “This president has no intention of fomenting unrest or an insurrection, he has no intention, obviously, of moving forward or recommending unlawful military action.” Reports emerged this week that Milley assured officials — including his counterpart in China and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — during Trump’s term in the White House that he would not allow the president to use nuclear weapons or take unlawful...

    A group of retired NFL players and their spouses have traveled to Washington on Wednesday and petitioned the Justice Department to probe the use of race-norming in the league's landmark $1 billion class-action concussion settlement — a practice that may have negatively impacted hundreds, or even thousands, of black former players. In June, the league pledged to evaluate concussion claims without the use of race-norming, which presumes African-American players start with lower cognitive functioning, making it harder for them to prove neurological decline and qualify for settlements. But despite the NFL's reversal, the impact of race-norming in concussion settlement is not fully understood, and players are accusing the league of using the practice as a strategy to limit payouts. 'The owners obviously did this to save money,' Charles Mann, a 60-year-old former 49ers and Redskins defensive end, told The Washington Post while petitioning the Justice Department on Wednesday. 'We need fresh blood, new people to come in here and take a look at this.' A Justice Department spokesperson told the Post that the petition would be reviewed, but declined to...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is being slammed on Twitter after he told New Yorkers to cut power usage on the hottest day in eight years.  De Blasio said on Wednesday that the city was experiencing a heat emergency and called on residents to take 'immediate' action to cut down electricity usage in their homes in a bid to avoid power outages.

    President Joe Biden threatened Russian President Vladimir Putin for interfering in U.S. elections and for allowing attacks on American infrastructure originating from his country, charges Putin denies. "He knows I will take action," Biden said during a press conference after the two leaders met in Geneva, Switzerland, noting that the United States has "significant cyber capability" and will respond in kind. Biden was asked if he could detail "something concrete" achieved in the Wednesday summit. The Russian leader had earlier denied responsibility in a press conference following the three-hour summit. "He doesn't know exactly what it is, but it's significant, and if, in fact, they violate these basic norms, we will respond," the president later said. Biden also stated there would be repercussions for Russia's standing on the world stage. "How would it be if the United States were viewed by the rest of the world as interfering with the elections directly of other countries, and everybody knew it?" Biden asked. "What would it be like if we engaged in activities that he's engaged in?" He added: "It diminishes...
    Heritage Action announced on Wednesday that it has been joined by more than 1,700 Nevada grassroots activists in opposing a Democrat-sponsored bill that passed the Nevada State Assembly in a straight 25 to 16 party-line vote the group says will weaken election integrity laws. The bill now goes to the Nevada State Senate. Democrats control the Nevada State Assembly by a 26 to 16 majority and the State Senate by a 12 to 9 majority. Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak is also a Democrat. In a statement released on Wednesday, Heritage Action described AB 321 as “a bill to weaken Nevada’s election laws and make the state’s elections more vulnerable to fraud.” More than 1,700 Nevada voters signed a letter sent on Wednesday to every member of the Nevada State Assembly and Nevada State Senate opposing AB. 321: We are active Nevada voters that care about restoring trust in election outcomes by closing any loopholes that erode integrity and transparency of the process.

    Major concern has arrived for the San Francisco Giants after starting pitcher Johnny Cueto pulled himself from Wednesday’s game with an undisclosed injury.  This is something no San Francisco Giants fan wanted to see on Wednesday afternoon. In the middle of a showdown between the Giants and Reds, starting pitcher Johnny Cueto delivered a heater for a strike, but things took a turn for the worse moments later.

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. Security Council late Thursday strongly condemned the use of violence against peaceful protesters and the deaths of hundreds of civilians in Myanmar, but dropped the threat of possible future action against the military following the Feb. 1 coup. The British-drafted press statement approved by all 15 council members after intense negotiations that began Wednesday expressed “deep concern at the rapidly deteriorating situation” in Myanmar and reiterated the council’s call on the military “to exercise utmost restraint.” The original draft was much stronger and would have expressed the Security Council’s “readiness to consider further steps,” which could include sanctions. It would also have “deplored” the use of violence against peaceful protesters and “condemned in the strongest terms the killing of hundreds of civilians by the security forces.” But at China’s insistence, the reference to “further steps” was eliminated and the stronger language, including the words “killing” and “deplore,” was softened in the final statement, council diplomats said, speaking on condition of anonymity because discussions were private. The reference to “further steps” was replaced in the...
    A conservative group is running a campaign in Arizona aimed at pressuring moderate Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema into voting against the massive Democrat-backed voting bill called S.1 that's before the Senate.  Heritage Action, which is associated with the right-leaning think tank Heritage Foundation, will spend $750,000 on television ads in Arizona asking voters to call Sinema and Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., to vote against the bill.  Sinema -- along with every other Democrat in the Senate except for Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. -- is a co-sponsor of the legislation. But she's staked out ground in recent years as one of the more moderate Democrats in the Senate, including by supporting the legislative filibuster, which Democrats will almost certainly need to eliminate in order to pass the bill.  "Remember when every TV ad was from a politician? Now Democrats want taxpayer-funded political ads," says The Heritage Action ad, which will hit the airwaves Thursday and was first obtained by Fox News. "Democrats also want to register illegal aliens and let people vote without an ID. That means fraud. It's a partisan...

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Giants first baseman Brandon Belt will make his 2021 spring training debut Wednesday as a pinch-hitter, the club announced. Belt was initially scheduled to be held out of early Cactus League action because he was recovering from an October surgery to remove a right heel spur, but his return to action was delayed after he was diagnosed with COVID-19 and mononucleosis prior to the start of spring camp. The Giants have yet to rule Belt out for Opening Day, but it’s possible he’ll open the season on the injured list for the second consecutive season as he continues to regain his strength and stamina. Manager Gabe Kapler has mentioned recently the Giants want to ensure Belt can play the field for a full nine innings and before the team would be comfortable adding him to the roster. Belt has been a participant in live batting practices where he’s taken multiple at-bats and played some first base at Scottsdale Stadium over the last week, but Wednesday’s game against the Padres will mark his first game...
    The White House is defending President Biden's decision opting against sending Congress his own gun control package as he presses the Senate to send him two measures already approved by House Democrats and ban assault-style firearms. Biden believes it is "vital to take action on two tracks," referring to legislation and executive action. But she emphasized that "lasting change" could only be instigated by lawmakers, shifting the onus back to Capitol Hill, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday. "What our team is looking at now is what is the range of legislation out now, and whether there are policy gaps that need to be filled or can be revisited," she told reporters. BIDEN'S SPENDING BILL SALES PITCH GETS LOST IN CRISIS Psaki mentioned a bill put forward by California Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline, both Democrats, rather than Biden's own proposal to curb corporate civil liability for gun manufacturers. He rolled that idea out during the campaign. The House passed two frameworks this month expanding background checks, but the Senate is yet to...

    YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Security forces in Myanmar again used force Saturday to disperse anti-coup protesters, a day after the U.N. special envoy urged the Security Council to take action to quell junta violence that this week left about 50 peaceful demonstrators dead and scores injured. Fresh protests were reported Saturday morning in the biggest city of Yangon, where stun grenades and tear gas were used against protesters. On Wednesday, 18 people were reported killed there. Protests were also reported in Myitkyina, the capital of the northern state of Kachin, Myeik, in the country’s far south where police fired tear gas at students, and Dawei in the southeast where tear gas was also used. Other places included Kyaikto, in the eastern state of Mon, Loikaw, the capital of Kayah state in eastern Myanmar, and Myingyan, a city where one protester was killed on Wednesday.
