    The Los Angeles Times recently highlighted a barbershop discussion that underscores how the assault on America's democracy is still being dismissed. Columnist Steve Lopez began with a triumphant recount of former President Barack Obama's first victory. A man named Lawrence Tolliver recalled the liberating feeling he felt casting his vote for Obama. At the time, Obama's victory appeared to be a move in the right direction for minorities in the United States. From slavery and the civil rights movement to the country electing its first Black president, it seemed the country was embarking on a new path. “I was just so happy for America, and I said we had finally turned the corner,” Tolliver said of Obama’s political ascension. “And as happy as I was then, I’m just as saddened, disheartened, and discouraged by the acts going on now to suppress or deny the vote.” However, the election of former President Donald Trump suggested that the country had moved two steps forward only to take 3 backward. Even though President Joe Biden was elected, Lopez noted that it does...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The MTA and NYPD are in a subway safety dispute, as more people return to public transportation.

With more businesses caving to cancel culture, Republicans are now calling out corporate America.   Dave Seminara, author of "Footsteps of Federer," told "Fox & Friends" Tuesday, the "cultural revolution" the U.S. is "a sad state of affairs." He weighed in on the difficulties of being a conservative during this time period.  "We're having essentially left-wing politics crammed down our throats," Seminara said. In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Seminara argued "woke" corporate America is more than just a quick fad.  "It’s increasingly clear that the sharp increase in corporate virtue signaling after George Floyd’s death wasn’t a passing trend but a sea change. Perhaps it’s time for conservatives to boycott companies that hate us." VideoThe former diplomat went on to criticize certain brands that he believes are isolating Americans by selling politics. "Really, I mean, does Coca-Cola want to be the official beverage of the Democratic Party or what are they going for here?" asked Seminara. "Tell me about your services. But please don't...
    (CNN) "So, you discriminate against people with health issues?" the maskless man said loudly, as if he was in a packed arena and not a coffee shop. The other customers looked away, backed up or retreated into the next room. I took a deep breath, trying to keep my voice steady and calm. "No, we don't discriminate," I said firmly, "but we require documentation for the said health issue or we require you to sit outside or at a table to order. We can't have you walking around the coffee shop without a mask if you do not have documentation."Emma AndrewsHe sneered, rolled his eyes. "If I call your manager right now, will he say the same thing?" he said, smirking, as if he highly doubted that I knew what I was talking about."Yes," I said without hesitating, staring right back into his patronizing gaze. I turned back to the espresso machine to finish the latte I was working on. My co-worker and I exchanged a look that said, we don't get paid enough for this. The man lolled off....

    PALATINE, Ill. (WLS) -- It's a decades-old family recipe."We bake three times a day," said Suzy Cambell with Spunky Dunkers. "Our donuts are always fresh and we want them warm for our customers."For Campbell, it's a family tradition."We have been here since 1964," she added.Each handmade donut, along with the smell of hot and fresh coffee, is a staple in the Palatine community."Double chocolate is a hit [and] choc cream puff is a hit," Campbell said.For the past few days, business has been spotty at Spunky Dunkers."We were so dead. We had the storms and then obviously the pandemic," she explained.That's when the team took to social media, asking customers to please come in - and now those donuts are flying off the shelves."We were not even prepared for it," Campbell said.

Everyone that can work we said, 'Get in ASAP.'"That post was shared thousands of times as the lines at the 24-hour donut shop stretched out the door.'When they posted, I was like, I am...
    Robinhood CEOs Baiju Bhatt and Vlad Tenev.Source: Robinhood This is a breaking news story. Check back for updates. Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev spoke to CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin Thursday evening. Amid a wild week of speculative retail trading, Robinhood on Thursday restricted trading in thirteen equities, including GameStop and AMC Entertainment. The free stock trading pioneer only allowed clients to sell positions, not open news ones, in certain securities, raised margin requirements, and even said  it would close out some positions automatically if the client was at risk of not having the necessary collateral. Robinhood then said after the closing bell Thursday that it would allow limited buying of restricted securities on Friday. The broker's decision was met with outrage from its band of loyal retail investors; however, Robinhood explained that the move was made to comply with capital requirements mandated by the SEC for broker dealers. Robinhood, which is expected to go public sometime in 2021, reportedly tapped some of its credit lines, people familiar with the matter told CNBC. GameStop shares closed down 44% on Thursday after...
    BENSALEM, Pa. (CBS) — The future of former President Donald Turmp, and whether it includes politics, is unclear. CBS3’s Matt Petrillo went to Bucks County to talk to Trump supporters and ask what’s next. Take a look inside the Trump Store in Bensalem. People can buy everything from Trump shirts to masks and more. And it saw a wave of customers Wednesday. “My son and daughter-in-law want a flag or something,” said Genie Mariano of Cheltenham. Mariano had to get some Trump merchandise for her family even though Trump is no longer in office. The Trump Store opened just 11 months ago. The owner says business has been steady, even after the election. “People are begging me to stay open. They say, ‘Please don’t close, this is our favorite store,’ and we have customers that come in every week,” owner Michael Domanico said. Trump suggested Wednesday, while he is leaving the White House, he may not be not leaving politics. “And I just want to say goodbye. Hopefully, it’s not a long-term goodbye, and we’ll see each other again,”...
    Texans’ Justin Reid done for season with hand injury Meghan and Harry Are the Most Tweeted-About Royals in 2020 COVID Totally Changed How We Spend Our Money For many people, the pandemic changed how we shop, where we work and what we’re spending money on. But it’s also changing the way we spend our money. © Creative Lab / Shutterstock.com Chase bank logo The Chase 2020 Digital Banking Attitudes Study emphasized the move toward digital banking, peer-to-peer payments and online fraud alerts. The study also showed a tremendous — and relatively sudden — shift in our interactions with paper money. Load Error “Consumers banked digitally more frequently during the pandemic than ever before, and that trend will continue into 2021 and beyond,” said Allison Beer, head of digital at Chase. “Consumers across all age groups trust that they can bank safely from anywhere, making it easier and safer for them to manage their money.” To track digital banking trends, Chase polled 1,500 people ages 18 to 65, with half being Chase customers and the other half non-Chase customers.

    Who’s laughing now? A joke from Ryanair didn’t fly when the airline mocked President Trump for claiming early victory in the 2020 race, as frustrated customers called out the carrier for their missing refunds. “Trump declaring victory this early is like disembarking before the plane has landed,” Ryanair teased on Wednesday, tweeting a clip of the president declaring victory in multiple key battleground states, even though those states had yet to finish counting ballots. “We don't recommend," added the European airline, which also hashtagged the post with "Election2020." INTENSE SPOTLIGHT FALLS ON BATTLEGROUDNS IN 2020 RACE TO 270 Though the post received over 11,000 likes, the social media stunt largely backfired, as disgruntled customers seized the moment to demand answers on ticket refunds and other customer service issues exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. "I think we have all thought about disembarking early on a Ryanair flight,” one user teased. “To be fair now Ryanair ... if you thought you could save a few quid by not actually having to land, you'd probably disembark your passengers that early,” another joked.

    BROOKLAWN, New Jersey -- It was a typical Sunday at Empire Diner in New Jersey as Lisa Mollett served two of her favorite regular customers. But those "regulars" had an extraordinary surprise planned for the end of their meal: they were giving Mollett a car."Instead of them saying they want a raspberry iced tea, they had a copy of the keys and the title," Mollett said. "They said, 'This is for you.' I said, 'Oh my gosh!'"The couple, Lisa Ayala and Jason Medina, gifted Mollett their 2006 Nissan Altima. The act of generosity brought her to tears."There are a lot of nice people out there, but I don't think many people would give a server a car as a tip," Mollett said.The couple got to know Mollett two years ago when they came to the Camden County diner. They liked her kindness and attention to detail, and the three quickly became friends. So when Mollett started having car trouble, it came up in conversation."I had a car a couple of months ago and it broke down," she said. "When the...
