    In a display of support of passenger rail service in Ohio, a bi-partisan alliance of Ohio mayors in partnership with several of Ohio’s regional planning agencies, have formally requested the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) to include a list of Ohio rail lines in its Corridor Identification Program (CAP). According to FRA, the CAP, established earlier this year, institutes a pipeline of projects ready for funding, allowing them to be implemented faster and with greater coordination. The Corridor ID Program is anticipated to help expand intercity passenger rail service beyond the Northeast Corridor. “Americans deserve what people in many other countries currently benefit from: a world-class rail system that allows you to get where you need to go quickly and affordably while reducing traffic and pollution on our roads. In launching the Corridor Identification and Development Program, which was made possible thanks to President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, we are taking a major step to transform America’s passenger rail network and connect our smallest towns and our biggest cities with great train service,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said. President Joe...
    A top Australian doctor has warned that the world is facing the most perilous moment of the Covid pandemic as the virus runs out of control in China because of its draconian zero-Covid policy. Former federal Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Nick Coatsworth said China's insistence on zero-Covid rather than learning to live with the virus like the rest of world could now lead to 'significant' Covid spread globally and even death. The controversial zero-Covid policy to try and eliminate the virus through harsh restrictions and quarantine measures has failed because of the Chinese government's inability to get elderly residents vaccinated and because of its decision to use inferior local vaccines over superior foreign ones.  China has largely been able to prevent a Covid catastrophe by enforcing strict lockdown measures that envelop entire cities, thus reducing the spread of the virus and preventing the old and frail coming in contact with it. However such a lockdown was unsustainable in the long term, and nationwide protests this week against strict measures that have been abandoned elsewhere in the world will now likely spark a...

Leahy: We are joined right now by a very good friend, Laurie Cardoza-Moore. Laurie is on the Tennessee State Textbook Commission. Good morning, Laurie. How are you this morning? Moore: Good morning, Michael. I’m well, thank you. Leahy: Well, what’s going on with the Tennessee Textbook Commission? Every time I turn around, there’s some kind of controversy. What’s the latest? Moore: The latest has to deal with library books. And as we know, there was a bill passed by the legislature earlier this year requiring that public school libraries must publish a list of materials in their library collection for parents to be able to review. And this list has to be reviewed periodically. But the Textbook Commission in our last...

    A cement truck driver was injured after his vehicle fell through a parking deck in Fairfield County. The incident took place in Danbury around 11:45 a.m., Monday, Nov. 28 on Crosby Street. The Danbury Fire Department responded to reports of a cement truck that had fallen through a parking deck. Upon arrival, firefighters found a single-axle cement truck with rear tires that had fallen through a one-story parking deck, said Erin Henry, spokesperson for the Danbury Fire Department.

    There was a major emergency in West Melbourne, Florida when a car crashed into a fireworks store, resulting in a massive fire accompanied by explosions. Local media outlets reported that emergency happened on Monday afternoon when a man in an SUV rear-ended a pickup truck at an intersection.

The pickup driver was reportedly uninjured, but the SUV driver was pronounced dead at the scene when the crash caused a fire to break out. Reports also say two shop workers were able to escape unharmed as emergency services were called to the scene when the building went up in flames.

    The Chicago Bulls signed coach Billy Donovan to a contract extension this summer ahead of the 2022-23 season, retaining the coach for at least four more years. The Bulls confirmed the signing, which was initially reported by The Athletic on Tuesday. Donovan’s original contract was through the 2023-24 season and the extension will reportedly increase that length by “several more years.” Donovan has gone 86-88 in his first two seasons in Chicago, leading the Bulls to their first playoff berth in five years last season. His tenure has included a rebuild of the roster around forward DeMar DeRozan and star guard Zach LaVine, who signed a $215 million maximum contract in the offseason. His coaching tenure has been plagued by major injuries to key stars — most notably point guard Lonzo Ball, who has not played since January after incurring a knee injury that required two surgeries and befuddled team doctors. The Bulls remain hopeful Ball will be available by the end of this season, but the guard has not returned to practice in nearly 11 months. in the meantime,...

    A woman was arrested after officials said she tried to board a flight at LaGuardia Airport with a loaded revolver. The Louisiana woman was brought into custody on Monday, Nov. 28, after she was prevented by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers from bringing the .38 caliber revolver handgun through the security checkpoint. A TSA officer saw the handgun on the X-ray machine's monitor when the woman's belongings entered the X-ray unit, according to the report.  The officer alerted Port Authority Police, which responded, confiscated the gun, and detained the woman for questioning, officials reported. The woman was arrested for a weapons violation and will also face a federal civil penalty for the incident, TSA said.  Her identity was not released. “As we wind down from the busy Thanksgiving holiday travel period, our officers are remaining focused on the mission,” said Robert Duffy, TSA’s federal security director for the airport. “Our officers have already stopped more than twice as many guns at our checkpoints this year as last year. Yet nobody should be bringing a gun to a checkpoint because they are...

    Elon Musk announced that he intends to 'go to war' with Apple over its decision to desert Twitter as an advertiser - a move Musk said suppresses free speech and serves as a blatant exploitation of the tech giant's power. The brazen declaration was delivered by the new Twitter chief Monday, in a slew of tweets that called out the iPhone maker for pulling back partnered posts on its site. The tirade also saw Musk - who has seen 50 of the platform's top 100 advertisers pull ads since taking the reigns last month - also air long-running concerns regarding the company's outsized market power. Apple, previously Twitter's top advertiser, ruffled feathers yesterday when it seemingly joined a host of other companies to cease advertising on the site without issuing a formal statement, according to Musk. The mass exodus primarily stems from ethical concerns regarding the company's new direction under its new boss, who has sought to increase revenue through subscriptions and offer users increased leniency with their posts since buying it up last month. In his 15-minute spiel Monday, Musk called out Apple for what...

    A Warren County man wanted for theft and burglary was on Fentanyl when he barreled a stolen Jeep through a stop sign, struck another car, ran through a fence, landed on a Morris County lawn, and later lied to police about his identity, authorities charged. Florham Park Police responded to the crash at the intersection of Brooklake and Crescent Roads just after 2 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 26, the department said. A 37-year-old Washington Township man ran a stop sign, struck the right-of-way vehicle, and crashed through a fence before disabling on a resident’s lawn, police said. The driver — whose name was not released — was arrested by Officer Greg Dietz after he was found to be under the influence of suspected Fentanyl. “The story didn’t end there,” police said. A follow-up investigation found that the Jeep the man was driving had allegedly been stolen out of Denville a few days beforehand. Meanwhile, the driver allegedly lied about his name and was found to have two outstanding warrants for motor vehicle theft and residential burglary when police discovered his...
    Last week, a day after the Chicago Bears lost their fourth consecutive game and fell to the bottom of the NFC, defensive lineman Justin Jones was asked how he and his teammates were handling the flood of losses, how players were digging deep to find the investment needed to persevere through this wayward season. As a team captain, Jones knows his approach matters and his words must resonate. He spoke from the heart. “Winning is an extrinsic motivation,” he said, “You have to have something in you to play this game, to go through the ups and downs and still be able to work hard and still be able to come to work with a smile on your face. There has to be some kind of intrinsic motivation to why you play this game.” A different version of that question came knocking again Sunday after the Bears suffered their worst loss of the year, a 31-10 drubbing by the New York Jets that also included a wave of injuries to key players. The Bears finished November without a victory and...
    by Aaron Kliegman   Democrats and immigration activists have long claimed that amnesty for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children wouldn’t include young people with a criminal history, but many of the juvenile beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) were affiliated with gangs and had arrest records when granted the program’s benefits, according to a new report. George Fishman of the Center for Immigration Studies this week released a report highlighting how many criminal immigrant youths qualify for DACA but face few consequences. “Despite the successful framing of Dreamers and DACA recipients as young people with no criminal records, it turns out that many were affiliated with gangs and many had arrest records when granted DACA benefits, and many others saw their DACA status terminated because of criminal activity,” the report states. The publication comes as Democrats in Congress are preparing a legislative push before they lose control of the House early next year to provide a pathway to citizenship for recipients of DACA. The Obama administration established the program in 2012 to grant protection...
    by T.A. DeFeo   Georgia is one of the largest markets without legalized sports betting, and the state could rival others that have already legalized such wagering. While the state does not have sports wagering, it does have a lottery. Last week, the Georgia Lottery Corp. reported its most profitable first quarter since its start in 1993. The analysis found that Georgia, one of 15 states without legalized sports betting, could generate $600 million of revenue annually. The Empire State of the South could rival states like Michigan or Virginia if it legalized sports betting. The Peach State’s “population rivals Ohio’s, and officials in Georgia have shown some recent interest in legalization, too,” PlayUSA said in a report. “The strength and positioning of the state lottery could complicate the proposed implementation, but we’ll choose to be optimistic for now.” PlayUSA, a content and resource center for the legal gambling industry that focuses on the United States, predicted that at least two states will legalize sports betting next year. Georgia lawmakers have considered legalizing sports betting and casino gambling in the past. In...
    Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso was able to play in Monday night’s 114-107 victory against the Utah Jazz after leaving the team’s overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday with a right ankle sprain. Caruso had five points and six rebounds in 27 minutes as the Bulls rallied from a seven-point halftime deficit. DeMar DeRozan led the Bulls with 26 points, while ex-Bull Lauri Markkanen scored a game-high 32 for the Jazz, including 7-of-11 3-point shooting. Coach Billy Donovan said Caruso asked to be removed from Friday’s game after planting his foot awkwardly twice in the final two minutes of overtime. The request was a rarity from Caruso — who often plays through injury — and garnered immediate concern from the Bulls coaching and medical staffs. Second-year guard Ayo Dosunmu closed the game in Caruso’s place. “It was very mild,” Donovan said before Monday’s game. “It just got to a point where he couldn’t move very well.” Caruso was listed as questionable Monday after sitting out all contact activity over the weekend. However, Donovan said he was confident...
    MSNBC host Joy Reid and guest Shannon Watts, an anti-gun violence activist and the founder of Moms Demand Action, ran through a myriad of stunning statistics related to gun violence in the U.S. and blasted the low voter turnout in states like Texas as “learned helplessness.” “When we look at states with stronger gun laws, there’s less gun deaths. When we look at states with weaker gun laws, there’s more gun deaths. That’s pretty intuitive,” Watts began, adding: And yet we continue to hear this gun manufacturer rhetoric that somehow more guns and fewer laws are going to make us safer. And if that were true, with 400 million guns and very few laws in this country, we’d be the safest country in the world. Instead, we have a 25 times higher gun homicide rate than any peer nation. “I mean, and I will, look I brought receipts thanks to the wonderful producers here,” Reid replied before showing a series of graphics and running through some statistics: Six out of the ten states with the least gun violence deaths have...
    Los Angeles Mayor-elect Karen Bass has invited all staffers in Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office to remain in their jobs through April, according to a letter sent last week — an atypical move intended to steady the ship amid an unusually short transition period. Incoming mayors regularly retain some staff from the previous administration, particularly during the first months of their administration, even as they appoint new deputy mayors and consider which general managers to keep around. But extending a blanket offer is unusual. Though deputy mayors and other senior staffers were included in the invitation, Bass spokesperson Zach Seidl said the incoming mayor will probably fill many of those high-level positions with her own people well before April. He added that Bass is expected to name her chief of staff imminently, with some other senior names to follow. “To maintain stability in city government during this unprecedented three-week transition, the mayor-elect has asked staff to be available to continue working to ensure vital services continue,” Seidl said.

    Nearly a million dollars in damage was caused by a fast-moving Maryland fire on Thanksgiving that gutted a home in Talbot County, the Office of the State Fire Marshal announced on Monday, Nov. 28. Investigators say that shortly after 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 24, members of the Easton Volunteer Fire Department were called to Peach Orchard Road in Easton, where there was a reported fire that broke out in a two-story home. Officials say that a team of 48 firefighters - with an assist from a tanker task force - were able to control the fire within approximately 30 minutes after being alerted to the blaze by neighbors, but not before it caused extensive damage to the residence. In total, the fire did approximately $800,000 ($700,000 to the structure, $100,000 to its contents), though no injuries were reported, according to the fire marshal. The cause and origin of the fire remain under investigation. Anyone with information has been asked to contact the Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal by calling (410) 822-7609.

    New technology allows those without hearing to listen to music through touch. Researchers at the University of Malaga designed an algorithm that converts monophonic music into tangible stimuli transmitted through a device worn around the wrist. The prototype is connected to a computer, but an advanced portable version that could be used at concerts is the next phase of this groundbreaking technology. The innovation uses 'tactile illusions,' an illusion that affects the sense of touch, which the team said is like 'hacking' the nervous system to receive a different response to the real stimulus sent.' Paul Remache, the main author of this paper, said in a statement: 'What we want to achieve in the long term is for people who do not hear to be able to 'listen' to music.' The focus is on how music can influence one's mood and abilities as a therapy for mental disorders and pain treatment.  The algorithm converts monophonic music into tangible stimuli transmitted through a device worn around the wrist RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Sight and sound: Smart...
    A cool air mass moving through the Southland this week is expected to deliver gusty winds, subfreezing temperatures and a potentially significant storm system by week’s end, the National Weather Service said. Temperatures on Monday dropped about 10 to 15 degrees from the day prior, with highs in downtown Los Angeles likely to top out around 64 degrees, according to Ryan Kittell, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. Wednesday morning is expected to be the coldest point of the week, when the L.A.-metro area is slated to see low temperatures in the 40s, Kittell said. The Santa Clarita Valley and far western San Fernando Valley could drop into the 30s, while the Antelope Valley could see temperatures in the 20s. That forecast prompted the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to issue a cold weather alert, warning of wind chill temperatures below 32 degrees in several areas, including the Santa Clarita Valley through Wednesday, Lancaster through Thursday and Mt. Wilson through Friday. Cold Weather Alert: Cold Temperatures Expected in Parts of Los Angeles County. View: https://t.co/dX6WqKY7AV...

    SAN JOSE — Three San Jose men have been arrested in connection with at least a dozen commercial burglaries reported between March and October of this year, according to police. During the alleged crime spree, they were reportedly seen using a telltale white Honda Odyssey minivan, which police said the suspects torched and abandoned after seeing security images of the vehicle shown in a local TV news report. According to investigators, the three men were connected to a multitude of burglaries targeting businesses throughout the city during overnight hours. They broke in through that means that were relatively small, like using crowbars and other blunt objects, and also more aggressive, like using a stolen vehicle to crash through storefronts, police said. Between March and July, burglaries linked to the trio involved the use of the white minivan as a getaway vehicle; after they destroyed it, the group got another minivan of the same model to carry on their activity through October, police said.

The New York Knicks dropped a tough one Sunday evening, as they fell to the Grizzlies in the closing seconds of regulation. Presented with a chance to take the lead as the game clock dwindled, point guard Jalen Brunson saw two late-game looks that, ultimately, fell a tad bit short and, in turn, clinched a 127-123 road win for Memphis. During the team’s post-game media session, Brunson discussed his last-second shortcomings to reporters and suggested that he’s taking these missed opportunities personally. “My teammates and coaches have a lot of trust in me and they’ve welcomed me with open arms. That hurts when I can’t pull through for them. That hurts,” Brunson told reporters. "My teammates and coaches have a lot of trust in me and they've welcomed me with open arms.

    A woman who disappeared 51 years ago as a baby was reunited with her parents in Fort Worth this weekend. Melissa Highsmith, 53, was kidnapped by a babysitter at her mother's Fort Worth home in 1971, months before she turned two. For more than half a century her parents and siblings had been looking around the country for her but the entire time she had been living just ten minutes away. Melissa Highsmith (pictured) was kidnapped by a babysitter in 1971 at just 22-months-old Melissa's 53rd birthday was celebrated without her earlier this month at the Fort Worth Police Department. At the time her father told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: 'We are looking for her and still care.' Later that day Melissa's family uncovered a lead that would unify them with her just weeks later, after decades of agony. It was brought about by a DNA test and detective work by Lisa Jo Schiele, a clinical laboratory scientist and amateur genealogist who encouraged the family to try a 23andMe DNA test. Melissa's father Jeffrie Highsmith submitted a DNA sample to...
    Congress returns after a Thanksgiving break for a final legislative push before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hands over her gavel to Republicans early in the new year. Party leaders and factions are competing for priorities with limited floor time to move – with key 'must pass' legislation also set to soak up time and attention.  Democrats have just weeks left with unified control of Congress, although their Senate majority will continue into the new year.  Legislation to protect same-sex and interracial marriages got a boost this month when a dozen Senate Republicans voted to advance a bill – signaling it could clear a Republican filibuster to become law if it gets priority. Democrats pushed the bill after the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade this summer, with some lawmakers warning same-sex marriage protections could be the next to fall. Legislation to reform the Electoral Count Act, with its complex provisions spelling out the role of Congress in counting the Electoral College votes for president, could also sneak through to passage while Democrats are in control. A version by Democratic...
    If you gathered every property record amassed by Santa Clara County since its incorporation in 1850 and stacked them on top of each other, the pile would soar to the height of Mount Everest. It could wrap around Apple’s spaceship-like headquarters roughly five times – or run parallel to Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport’s runways back-and-forth three times. You get the picture – it’s a lot of paper. And for two employees in Santa Clara County, that stack is their main focus for the next five years. They face the daunting task of reviewing every property record for discriminatory language that excluded nonwhite residents across the state and country from buying and settling in certain areas, contributing to today’s segregated neighborhoods and racial wealth gap. A state law passed last year requires counties to review all documents, even though court battles and fair housing laws prohibited such discrimination over a half-century ago. Where such language is found, counties must draw a heavy line through it. “It’s very focused work,” said Genevieve Singh-Hanzlick, who is managing the project. “But...
    TESLA has recalled nearly 4million U.S. vehicles in 2022 through 19 orders this year - an average of nearly two a month since January. And some of the electric car company’s issues have reared their ugly heads more than once. 5Front view of a Tesla car dealer entranceCredit: Getty Power windows may pinch Tesla recalled 1,096,762 vehicles over fears the automatic windows would not stop immediately when they detect an obstruction, such as a motorist’s fingers - or even their neck. The electric car manufacturer was concerned the window software in the recalled vehicles may apply excessive force when it comes across an obstruction, risking injury to drivers and passengers.

    The American Automobile Association has compiled a list of the country's most dangerous roads. It comes as 55 million people are thought to have hit the road this past weekend for the Thanksgiving break.  Researchers used information gleaned from government websites and news reports to generate the report which covers every corner of the nation, from a Florida interstate with almost one death for every mile of road, to an Alaskan highway with no gas stations or rest stops for 240 miles. Roads can be dangerous for a variety of reasons with some travel across hazardous terrain, while others are so flat and straight it can be tempting to speed down them. The American Automobile Association has compiled a list of the country's most dangerous roads with Florida's Highway 1, among them Million Dollar Highway, Colorado  Officially known as U.S. Route 550, Colorado's Million Dollar Highway is said to have been named after one early traveler said she would need to be paid $1 million to drive it again. The road winds through Red Mountain Pass in the San Juan Mountains,...

    The World Cup group stage comes to an end on Friday with a majority of teams still in contention to advance to the round of 16. Here’s a look at the various permutations. The group stage at the World Cup in Qatar is nearing its conclusion. Only 16 of the 32 finalists will advance to the round of 16, which kicks off the knockout stage next weekend. Before any of that can happen, the final matchday in each of the eight groups will need to be played over the next five days. The top two teams from each group will advance to the knockout stage. So far, only the host nation Qatar and Canada have no chance of advancing to the knockout round. Meanwhile, France, the defending World Cup champions, became the first, and for now, only team to qualify. Groups G and H, who play on Monday, have only contested one matchday so far, while Groups A through F have played two games. Here are the group permutations and what teams need to do starting Monday to reach the...
    SANTA CLARA — The 49ers are the envy of the NFL for the number of playmakers they put on the field on offense. In a 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints Sunday at Levi’s Stadium, Jauan Jennings eclipsed the big names when it mattered most. The 49ers were so good defensively a win seemed almost assured, but on offense it was a struggle all day with Jennings making the difference. Well down the pecking order of stars that include Deebo Samuel, Christian McCaffrey, George Kittle and Brandon Aiyuk, Jennings came in with 18 receptions for 220 yards and didn’t have a touchdown in nine games. Yet Jennings almost personally furnished the 49ers’ lone touchdown drive in the second quarter, finishing off a 57-yard, nine-play march before the half with a 5-yard touchdown reception of a pass from Jimmy Garoppolo that deflected off the hands of Saints safety Tyrann Mathieu. “The whole entire drive I was just locked in, focusing on making plays,” Jennings said. “When the opportunity comes my way, I’m going to make it.” Jennings, who is fond...
    Every fan of The L Word: Generation Q will have finished tonight’s episode with some warmth in their heart, and maybe even shouted a “FINALLY” at the screen. For tonight, if you have been following their torrid on-off-on-off relationship for nearly 20 years, you will have been ecstatic to see Bette Porter (Jennifer Beals) run through Los Angeles traffic—no easy feat—to profess her undying love for Tina Kennard (Laurel Holloman). It’s the moment every “Tibette” (their ship name, of course) fan has waited for: the beloved couple has finally reconciled. It’s an event that should be memorialized and celebrated. Statues must be built in the middle of Los Angeles freeways in their honor. OK, that is a bit much, but seriously it’s a monumental moment for fans of The L Word (both of the original series and Generation Q). By the way, if you thought that the running through traffic bit was a nod to the classic lesbian rom-com Imagine Me & You, you’d be correct. “Every generation needs a good lady running through traffic to another woman,” The...
    The holidays are a time for reflection, which means one thing I must admit about myself that I’m not very proud of is that, when it comes to products that celebrities make, endorse, or even just try, I have no scruples. I once trudged through Brooklyn the morning after a flash flood to get my hands on Bella Hadid’s brain power beverage. I’ve purchased Mary J. Blige’s Pinot Grigio simply because it was on display at a nearby wine shop. When they let me loose at BravoCon last month, the only thing that stopped me from clearing out all of the Bravolebrity merch booths—and in turn, my bank account—was my inability to push through the drunk people at the Javits Center. Needless to say, when I had the opportunity to try Kris Jenner’s favorite edibles, I couldn’t say no. And not just because I am a weak little shill for products with any tangential relation to stardom, but because I am a firm believer in the Krientific Method, which is what I like to call the Kris Jenner Scientific Method....
    Like the characters in many of their songs, Los Lobos remain humble but proud. “Thank you for still liking us,” guitarist César Rojas will often tell audiences. The original five Wolves not only have survived: They are at a high point artistically as they celebrate what will be a half-century of performing when they come to Kean University on Feb. 18, 2023. Not bad for “just another band” that started out playing mariachi for weddings and barrio parties in East L.A. The cross-cultural multiple Grammy winners would've been a fairly sizable success on their own -- but then came their rousing remake of the party staple "La Bamba," the title song to a 1987 biopic about singer Richie Valens. It caught the ears of a mass audience in a way that equally talented but lesser-known California peers such as X and Dave Alvin (with and without the Blasters) hadn't. Valens was the first Chicano rock star, a pioneer. But his massively popular hit has less to do with Los Lobos’ sound than just about any other number in their expansive...
