    President Biden is considering delaying the ending of Title 42 border restrictions which were introduced during the pandemic and are currently set to expire on May 23.   The Biden administration is coming under increasing pressure over the looming expiration of what was a public health order that enabled U.S. authorities to turn back most migrants, including people seeking asylum from persecution.  But the number of migrants now attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border is at its highest level in two decades with even larger numbers set to arrive once the pandemic-era order is lifted. Thousands of migrants are camped out in Mexico near the U.S. border waiting for Title 42 to end on May 23  Immigration authorities stopped migrants 221,303 times along the Southwest border in March, a 33% increase from a month earlier, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data released Monday.  The number of migrant encounters has gone up nearly every month since President Joe Biden took office, becoming fodder for political opponents who point to the increase as evidence that this administration is weaker on...

    The stories broke in uncomfortably close proximity on Wednesday, one bombshell followed by another. The Grammys, an institution in downtown L.A. for 17 of the last 18 years and scheduled to be held there again on Jan. 31, have been postponed indefinitely while the omicron variant – hopefully – plays itself out. A couple of hours before that, a Dallas television station was the first to report that the NFL has been checking out alternate sites – and specifically Arlington, Texas – for the Feb. 13 Super Bowl currently scheduled to be played at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, if the city, county or state were to impose further COVID-19 restrictions in response to the current surge.

    (CNN)An Oklahoma man sentenced to death for a murder he says he did not commit will plead his case to the state Pardon and Parole Board in a clemency hearing Monday, less than three weeks before he's set to be executed.Monday's hearing is a matter of life or death for Julius Jones, scheduled to be executed November 18 for the 1999 murder of Paul Howell, whose sister and two young daughters were present when he was shot in the driveway of his parents' home. But Jones, his attorneys and advocates -- among them high-profile celebrities like Kim Kardashian West -- insist he is innocent.

    Hunter Biden is expected to meet with potential buyers ahead of art shows in Los Angeles and New York, according to a spokesperson for the gallery that’s holding them. “Oh yes, Robin Davis of the Georges Bergès Gallery told CBS News when asked if the president’s son would attend the shows. “With pleasure. He’s looking forward to it. It is like someone debuting in the world. And of course he will be there.” Biden’s paintings are expected to go for $500,000 each. His attendance at the events appears to run counter to an arrangement touted by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki earlier this month, under which buyers would remain anonymous to Biden. “Well, I think it would be challenging for an anonymous person who we don’t know and Hunter Biden doesn’t know to have influence,” said Psaki, responding to a question about buyers potentially seeking influence with the president through his son. However, there is nothing preventing buyers from coming forward and disclosing they had made the purchases after the fact. Walter Shaub, former head of the Office...

On Thursday night, Musk tweeted a 'heartbreak' emoji with the word 'Bitcoin' alongside a meme about a couple breaking up over the boyfriend's love for Linkin Park lyrics.

Musk then mocked furious investors, posting a meme depicting a day trader crying as his portfolio plunged in value and replying 'nice' to an illustration of rival crypto Dogecoin.

    Ghislaine Maxwell has lost her latest bail hearing in New York on Tuesday and is therefore likely to remain in prison until her trial. The British socialite's claims that was mistreated while being held in custody were not enough to persuade a panel of three appeals court judges in New York to overturn the decision to deny her bail for a third time. Maxwell's lawyer said guards in her Brooklyn jail were keeping her awake at night to ensure she wouldn't commit suicide like financier and paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. But in a brief order, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said that to the extent Maxwell is being deprived of sleep, she should seek relief from U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan, who oversees her criminal case. David Markus, Maxwell's attorney, said he was 'heartbroken' by the ruling and the team are now 'considering our options for next step.'

    A few days after NASA confirmed that SpaceX is on track for a Crew Dragon launch on November 14th and a Cargo Dragon 2 launch from December 2nd, a company executive says the post-pin release is a sign of things to come. The first semi-operational Dragon spacecraft flew in December 2010, a decade ago, and about 18 months later, with the vehicle’s second orbital mission, became the first private company to launch the first spacecraft in SpaceX history with the International Space Station (ISS). Four months later, Cargo Dragon successfully joins ISS for the second time as part of SpaceX’s first NASA Commercial Restoration Services Mission (CRS-1), beginning to arrive as an extraordinarily successful series of 19 operational space station restoration runs. A total of less than 45 metric tons (, 000 100,000 LP) is supplied. SpaceX, which effectively retired the first-generation Dragon spacecraft, completed its NASA CRS1 deal in April 2020. Within two months, the crew dragon – the upgraded ‘Dragon 2’ spacecraft – had thrown out its second orbital mission and astronaut launch launch, with its flawless completion...

    As the air gets colder, efforts to help Colorado's restaurant industry through the long winter ahead are heating up. Today Governor Jared Polis is scheduled to announce Let's Take This Outside, a two part-program designed to inspire creativity through an October 19 design workshop and then aid in the implementation of some of that creativity through grants. Chris Fuselier, owner of the Blake Street Tavern and a prominent member of the Tavern League of Colorado, is always ready to fight for the survival of his industry. That's why he pushed suing the State of Colorado and the governor back in July, first over social distancing guidelines and other restrictions on bars and restaurants, then on the early last call announced the day the suit was filed.
