    RESIDENTS are furious after the local council let their neighbours keep two secret "party houses". Wealthy landowner John Sugden built the controversial properties - which council planners demanded be destroyed. 3The 'party houses' are allowed to stay 3John Sugden has been allowed to keep the two properties 3His wife Carol Ann said they are 'pleased' with the decision However, in a U-turn which has now angered locals even more, John has won the right to keep the developments on the site of a former plant nursery. The wealthy landowner and his wife Carol Ann were recently given the go ahead by Charnwood Borough Council after submitting a “favourable” retrospective plan. The couple from Newtown Linford, Leicestershire failed to seek planning consent and were ordered unanimously by council members to rip up the cabin-style homes after being issued with "formal enforcement action.” But after losing the first round of their battle the determined Sugdens finally put in a plan to keep the properties. Next door neighbours Terry and Sarah Smith describe them as “party houses” for use by the couple, their family...
    A couple that was once reported missing by their family members in Brazil is now stuck behind bars in Lebanon on drug smuggling charges. Igor dos Santos, 26, and Juliana Nunes, 31, were taken into custody at Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport on December 19 after they tried to enter the country each carrying half a kilo of cocaine in their stomachs.

They kept in communication until December 18 before cutting off all means of contact. They...

    The family of Hae Min Lee, the 18-year-old whose death was covered in the popular podcast Serial, are appealing a Baltimore judge's decision to release Adnan Syed. Syed, now 41, had been in prison for over 23 years for strangling Lee and burying her body in a shallow grave, before prosecutors vacated his conviction on September 19 and he was released.  Attorneys for the Lee family filed a notice to appeal his release on Wednesday morning, they told The Baltimore Sun, saying they were not given proper warning to prepare. 'The fact that makes it hard for them to swallow is the fact that they were kept in the dark,' Lee family attorney Steve Kelly told CBS Baltimore. 'They trusted the state, and the state took such an abrupt turn without sitting down and explaining it to them.' Young Lee, Hae's brother, had requested that the court push the hearing back so that he could fly in from California, but the court did not grant his request. He instead appeared virtually during the hearing, speaking to the judge and the prosecutors over...
    L: MANDEL NGAN/AFP via Getty Images R: L: Brent Stirton/Getty Images President Joe Biden tore into Republicans at a small private DNC fundraiser, and recounted how world leaders at the G7 told him how shaken they were by the attack carried out by supporters of former President Donald Trump. The president spoke to a small gathering of around 40 people at the home of Henry Laufer and Marsha Laufer in New York City this week, where he told one of the anecdotes that has become a regular part of his post-insurrection stump. But this telling had an added dimension, as elsewhere in the speech, Biden also ripped into the threats of violence if Trump is punished for any of the crimes of which he is accused. He then told of G7 leaders saying their faith in America’s longevity was shaken by the attacks — and wondering “Are we going to be okay?”: And so I went to the first G7 meeting in England, and I sat down with the leading heads of state and of the seven most prosperous countries in the world. And...
    A British father who dumped his partner for a Ukrainian refugee said he is going to return with his new love to her war-torn in a bid 'to save hundreds of lives'.  Former security guard Tony Garnett left his longtime partner Lorna Garnett, the mother of their two daughters, to start a new life with Sofiia Karkadym, 22, just ten days after she arrived from war torn Ukraine to start a new life in Britain. He is now raising money through skydiving so they can help orphan children in Ukraine.   The 29-year-old, who claims he lost his job over the affair, has now told Yorkshire Live: 'I have seen the full scale of things since meeting Sofiia and I think people need this help. It is not a game. I need to use my influence now to do the right thing. 'The longer [the war] goes on for then there's going to be more deaths - and some could be stopped with this help. 'I could save hundreds of lives. Even if I save the life of one person then that is worth...
    A four-time Olympian who survived a fiery plane crash with her husband and niece says she thought they were going to die but had 'no time to be scared' as the aircraft suddenly took a nosedive and plummeted to the ground.  Miraculously, all three of them - including their beloved golden retriever puppy - survived the horrific crash when their plane went down near a Michigan airport last month. Survivors Chirine Njeim, 37,  who represented Lebanon in both the Summer and Winter Olympics, her pilot husband, Ronny Kamal, 44, and their 17-year-old niece, Siena Kamal, spoke out for the first time Tuesday morning on Good Morning America (GMA) where they recounted terrifying moments and how they narrowly escaped tragedy. 'The world sort of slowed down then and those moments felt a little bit like an eternity,' Kamal told GMA.  Kamal has 26 years of aviation experience but said on Tuesday that he still doesn't know what caused the single-engine Beechcraft A36 to crash shortly after takeoff from Ray Community Airport in Ray Township on July 24.  Kamal and his wife Njeim said that in...
    President Joe Biden talked about going to school during segregation, telling the crowd at a DNC fundraiser that he recalled noticing the practice as a young child in Delaware. President Biden spoke at a Democratic National Committee Fundraiser Wednesday night at the Marriott Marquis Chicago, during which he sounded familiar notes about his entry into politics — but also shared painful memories of life before Brown v. Board of Education. Speaking about how the civil rights movement inspired him, the president recalled his days as a third-grader attending Holy Rosary Elementary School in Claymont Delaware — and related that experience to the politics of voting rights today: I used to — we moved from Wilmington — from, excuse me, Scranton, Pennsylvania, where there were very few African Americans, down to Wilmington, to a place called Claymont, Delaware, which was a — it sits on the border of the Pennsylvania state line, where there are more oil companies and refineries than in Houston, Texas. And I went to a little Catholic school called Holy Rosary, which is — I was in third...
    During a report from Beijing on CNN International on Friday, CNN Beijing Bureau Chief Steven Jiang was surrounded by government officials who he said “were trying to stop us from going live” because “they don’t want foreign media coverage of anything related to their COVID strategy,” in light of the negative coverage of China’s coronavirus strategy in Shanghai. Jiang began the report by stating, “I’m actually surrounded by plainclothes agents here at this testing site.” Jiang added, “They were trying to stop us from going live here, even though we are perfectly fine in public, not really interfering with this testing site behind me.” And “We are obviously not interfering with their testing process. We are in a very — actually, a rather empty place here, a testing site. Again, a very confined area, not far from the office. So, I think, in general, they just consider this issue so sensitive they just don’t, in a way, want — they don’t want foreign media coverage of anything related to their COVID strategy, right now. Especially, I guess, with all the...
    Bad: throwing fruit at me. Good: attacking the U.S. Capitol, resulting in deaths. It's all in my new book, 'Very Dangerous Stuff' Your day probably hasn't been weird enough, so let's fix that right now with a quote from an ex-President of These United States. "I wanted to have people be ready because we were put on alert that they were going to do fruit," said Donald J. Trump, previously in charge of this nation's nuclear arsenal. As reported by The Daily Beast, this and many other important fruit-related quotes have now surfaced thanks to an October deposition just now being filed in the civil lawsuit against Trump brought by Trump Tower protesters who were assaulted by Trump's private security force back in 2015. Lawyers for those protesters were probing Trump's history of encouraging violence against protesters in general, including his public request to a crowd at one of his 2016 rallies that "If you see someone getting ready to throw a tomato, just knock the crap out of them, would you?" This led the man who could once issue...
    To put the intricacies of the Miami Heat’s defensive approach on Trae Young into perspective is to consider that the precepts sometimes are leaving Erik Spoelstra’s team as confused as the increasingly befuddled Atlanta Hawks guard. “Half the time,” Heat forward Jimmy Butler quipped, “I don’t even know what we’re doing, to tell you the truth. But we’re just playing hard.” What the Heat have done though four games of this best-of-seven Eastern Conference open-round playoff series is cut down Young’s numbers to a size that has allowed them to seize a 3-1 lead. “I’m sorry,” Butler said, “but when you’re that ignitable, that you’ve got to send three, four bodies at a time, I’m sorry that we’re the team that has to do it to you, but we’re not going to stop.” In Sunday night’s 110-86 victory at State Farm Arena, the Heat came with so man bodies from so many directions that Young seemingly was left with single option. In closing with nine points on 3-of-11 shooting, all but one of his shots came from beyond the 3-point...
    Barstool Sports President Dave Portnoy has revealed the company had ‘moles’ in Business Insider while the news outlet was investigating Portnoy for alleged sexual misconduct. During Tuesday’s episode of The Dave Portnoy Show, he explained, in detail, how it all happened. “I said there was a mole. Duh, we had a mole,” Portnoy admitted. Co-host Eddie Farrer added, “I thought that was the part where they give you 48 hours or 24 hours to make revisions and you were screened out of that.” “Nope!” Portnoy said defiantly. “I didn’t have the mole the first time, the second time I had the mole.” He began to discuss the two Business Insider investigations that were conducted, involving allegations of sexual misconduct. The first of which was published in November 2021 with a follow up piece that was released in February of 2022. “The blatant lies they had in the article that they were ready to publish. Like, bang. They were ready to publish it. If I didn’t have the mole, I would not have been able to react in time. I knew...
    Hong Kong (CNN)Millions of people in China are under lockdown. Hong Kong morgues are overwhelmed. And South Korea is reporting the most cases per capita worldwide.For much of the pandemic, these places were held up as Covid-19 success stories, as stringent border rules helped them avoid high cases and deaths -- even as the pandemic took hold around the world. Now, they're among a number of places across Asia Pacific battling unprecedented outbreaks.While the surge in cases can partly be explained by the highly contagious Omicron variant breaking through the region's defenses, that's not the whole story.In some places, rising case numbers are a symptom of living with Covid as governments accept that trying to eradicate the virus is an unrealistic pursuit. In other places, skyrocketing cases are being blamed on a lack of planning by authorities caught off guard, despite two years of warning.

    Anything else? Democrats face another problem amid the gas price crisis. The Biden administration is reportedly looking to Venezuela and Saudi Arabia to help supply America's energy needs after cutting off Russian oil. But that is not going over well in Florida, where a significant Hispanic population rebukes any association with socialistic dictators, like Venezuela's Nicolas Maduro. Politico reported:[Democratic] Rep. Val Demings, who is running for Rubio’s Senate seat, said she was “deeply skeptical” of the talks with Venezuela. Rep. Charlie Crist, who is running for governor, said he was “deeply concerned the wrong change to our policy would simply enrich Maduro’s brutal dictatorship and set back the fight for democracy.”"If America was down to it’s last barrel and Venezuela was giving oil away for free, we still shouldn’t go to the Maduro regime for help,” said Democratic state Sen. Annette Taddeo, who is running for governor, in a statement.Meanwhile, Democratic lawmakers are increasingly calling on the Biden administration to increase domestic oil production to help alleviate problems for Americans.
    Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has rejected Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) description of the storming of the U.S. Capitol as a “violent insurrection.” Rubio spoke to NewsNation’s Kellie Meyer on Wednesday, who asked him why he declines to call January 6th a “violent insurrection.” His answer: “There was no way they were going to overthrow the government of the United States.” “It wasn’t going to happen,” Rubio continued. “They were able to delay by a few hours, the vote count but there was absolutely no way did we ever come close in any way shape or form to those people leading to the overthrow of the government of the United States of America.” Rubio’s comments come shortly after McConnell rebuked the Republican National Committee for censuring Representatives Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) over their work with the January 6th Committee. Since the RNC also pronounced the events leading up to January 6th as “legitimate political discourse,” McConnell characterized the storming of the Capitol as “a violent insurrection with the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer...
    Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell ridiculed President Joe Biden on Tuesday, asking how he could square his plan to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center with the mission last week to capture ISIS chief Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi. 'Where were they planning to house this killer,' he asked. 'A Holiday Inn?' In the event, al-Qurayshi made it a moot point. He died during the raid when he detonated a suicide bomb, according to U.S. officials. Speaking on the Senate floor, McConnell congratulated the president for making the 'tough call' to send American special forces on the mission. But he used the raid as an example of why Guantanamo Bay should stay open.  'This terrorist could have been a source of valuable information for destroying ISIS,' he said.  'But this aspect of last week's mission also raises a question for our commander in chief. 
    A California jewelry store owner is speaking out after his business was hit by a violent smash-and-grab robbery, leaving his father injured by thieves who reportedly swiped more than $100,000 worth of merchandise.  BLACK LA RESIDENTS LACK ACCESS TO GUNS AS WEALTHY RUSH TO BUY FIREARMS AMID CRIME WAVE: ACTIVISTS  Owner of "Heart of Gold" in San Jose, Eric Orozco, joined "Fox & Friends First" on Wednesday to discuss the incident that left his dad and other employees terrified for their lives. "They terrified my family, they terrified all of our employees," Orozco told Carley Shimkus. "They weren't sure if they were going to die. They weren't sure how escalated those moments were. It was just some of the worst moments of some of their lives." He added, "My dad was injured and... that really broke my heart to see.

But, as Andy Cohen remembers it, the episodes weren’t always filled with “Housewives” in glamorous get-ups from high fashion brands. “In the early days of ‘Orange County,’ the fashion was just terrible,” the 53-year-old “Watch What Happens Live” host said in a recent interview with Vanity Fair. “If you look at the first few years of reunions, Orange County, Atlanta and New York, they were basically wearing — I don’t even think what they would wear to a cocktail party. I think it was more what they might wear to a PTA meeting.”  The franchise has come a long way from the casual days Cohen recalled, however, with Housewives across cities now enlisting glam squads to perfect their...

He stated he was terminated from the company for eating leftover baked goods that were destined for the trash – but some people say he’s in the wrong anyway. 3A man claimed to be a fired Whole Foods employee 3He said he was terminated for eating leftover bagels and muffins that were going to end up in the garbageCredit: Getty “I got fired from Whole Foods because I took home the bagels and muffins that they were going to throw in the trash,” the person, named Mikey, tweeted. “They also threw away approximately eight pizzas every night and told the hot foods department they’d get fired if they ate some without paying first.” The tweet sparked a huge debate about Whole Foods’ practices, with some people sympathizing with the user and others arguing the grocery store was right to ax him. “But why wouldn't they just let employees take food home?  “What's the point of letting...

    The daughter of a powerful gang leader in Ecuador feared for her life as gang members held her captive for four days in the mountains before they decided to free her and her friend on Sunday night.  Michelle Macías, the 19-year-old daughter of Los Choneros leader José 'Fito' Macías, and María Villavicencio, 21, were abandoned by the kidnappers in the town of Ligüiqui, 19 miles away from the central coast port city of Manta, where they were abducted Wednesday evening 'Horrible. They aimed at us. I thought they were going to kill us. But thank God we are alive and we are here at home with family,' Michelle Macías told reporters at her home Sunday.

He said Taliban fighters tried to take his camera but he was able to hand it off to someone in the crowd before being dragged away and beaten. After several hours, the journalists were reportedly released and sent away without explanation.

    Cult movie Legally Blonde was hailed for its 'progressive' plotline when it was first released in 2001 - but it turns out the Reese Witherspoon-led flick almost pushed the boundaries even further, by ending with two of its lead characters in a same-sex relationship.  According to actress Jessica Cauffiel - who played Margot, best friend and sorority sister of Reese's character Elle Woods - one of the earliest versions of the script came to a close with the leading lady enjoying a romantic vacation with her arch nemesis-turned-best friend Vivian, played by Selma Blair.  Speaking to the New York Times alongside several of the movie's cast and crew, Jessica, 45, revealed that the 'first ending' of the movie featured a suggestive shot of bubbly blonde Elle and wealthy bookworm Vivian holding hands on a beach in Hawaii while sipping margaritas.  'The first ending was Elle and Vivian in Hawaii in beach chairs, drinking margaritas and holding hands,' she revealed in an interview to mark the 20th anniversary of the hit film.  'The insinuation was either they were best friends or...
    Around 1,000 migrants were flown to San Diego, California, under the impression they were going to a shelter and instead were deported to Tijuana, Mexico, The Boston Globe reported Saturday. Hundreds of migrant families, mostly comprised of women and children from Honduras and Guatemala, who attempted to enter the U.S. illegally were removed from the country and released into Mexican border towns where they’ve stayed for weeks, the Boston Globe reported. A dozen migrants who recently arrived at a Mexican border town said some immigration officials told them they were going to a shelter in San Diego, California, where they could contact family members, the Boston Globe reported. The migrants were instead bussed into Mexico, reportedly without being told. “I feel tricked,” a 39-year-old mother from Honduras said, the Boston Globe reported.

    Friday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) reacted to the Democrats introducing a bill to add four justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. According to Scott, the push to pack the court is a “power grab” because the Democrats know the GOP is “going to take the House back and the Senate back” in 2022. “[T]hey know what they’re doing,” Scott stated. “This is just part of the Democrat power grab. You know, they want to pack the Supreme Court so they can get some activist judges that are going back their, you know, insane left-wing agenda. They want to get rid of the filibuster because they, oh, gosh, they didn’t get 51 votes in the last election, so they need to be able to, you know, get rid of the filibuster so they can try to pass their radical agenda. … Look, they are trying to make D.C. a statehood. This is all about power for the Democrats. You know, their election bill is about power for the Democrats. The using reconciliation to pass massive spending...

    More than 20million years of life have been lost prematurely due to Covid, a study claimed today. Researchers estimate the disease shaved 16 years off the lives of every coronavirus victim, on average. Experts said it was a stark reminder that Covid doesn't only kill the elderly, even though it poses a much smaller risk to younger people.  Spanish academics investigated Covid death tolls in 81 countries around the world, including Britain and the US. They compared the difference between a person's age when they died with Covid to the average life expectancy in heavily affected countries.  The calculation, known as years of life loss (YLL), could be two to nine times higher for Covid than average seasonal flu.

    Nancy Grace has blasted rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol Building last Wednesday, and is calling for some of them to be charged with murder.  'What they did is a crime and they all need to be identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,' the legal commentator raged during her Crime Stories show on Fox Nation Tuesday.  'Over my dead cold, body is this going to go away.'  Police officer Brian Sicknick was among five people who died following the siege of the government building by the mob of Trump supporters last Wednesday.  The cop was reportedly bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher and later died in hospital.  'They didn't go with the intent to kill a cop... But murder can be formed in the blink of an eye - the intent to commit murder,' Grace stated on the show.  'Each one of them can be charged with felony murder.'

    Senator Pat Toomey has been pretty unequivocal in denouncing President Donald Trump and saying he needs to go after the attack on the Capitol he incited, but the Pennsylvania Republican also went after two of his Senate colleagues for their role in perpetuating baseless claims about the election. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley raised objections to the election results on Wednesday. Cruz objected to the Arizona results before the storming of the Capitol, while Hawley continued to say he would object after the rioters were cleared out. On Meet the Press Sunday, Chuck Todd asked Toomey, “What kind of responsibility do you hold Senators Hawley and Cruz for what happened on Wednesday?” “They’re going to have a lot of soul searching to do,” Toomey said. He called out his colleagues for being “complicit in the big lie, this big lie that Donald Trump won the election in a landslide and it was all stolen.” “They compounded that with this notion that somehow this could all be reversed in the final moments of the congressional proceedings. So that’s going to haunt...
    Doctors fear California is on track to become like former COVID-19 epicenter New York as the state braces for a grim Christmas with hospitalizations surging to five times what they were just two months ago.  There are currently 16,843 patients being treated across the state for COVID-19 and 3,614 of them are in ICU, the latest data from the state's health department shows.  Just two months ago, there were a total of 2,291 patients, including 657 in ICU. The number of people hospitalized is now more than double the state's previous peak, reached in July, and a state model forecasts the total could hit 75,000 patients by mid-January.  As of Sunday, ICU capacity was at zero percent in South California and San Joaquin Valley region.  Los Angeles County currently accounts for the most hospitalizations in the state with 5,709 COVID-19 patients.  There are currently 16,843 patients being treated across California for COVID-19.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Officers responding to former Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson’s house recently seemed to know exactly what they were walking into that night. It was last month when police were called to Johnson’s Bridgeport home for a domestic issue. “We got a call at the desk that there was a domestic. The offender’s not on scene. They might be looking for paper. But it’s a lieutenant – last name is (redacted), so you can let the officers go in there (redacted),” an officer is heard saying over dispatch radio. “Oh God, OK,” another officer says. “…Just give them a heads up. Will you send them a message… they’re going to probably need some member there if anything comes of it, because she’s already suing him and all that other stuff,” the first officer said. As CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot reported earlier this month, police sources with knowledge of the investigation said former Supt. Johnson was burning his wife’s underwear on a bed inside their Bridgeport home on Oct. 23. We have been told he used an aerosol...
    President Donald Trump, addressing the uncertain election results early Wednesday morning, reminded the nation that he had predicted a contested result since Democrats had begun urging states to send mail-in ballots to millions of voters. Trump was leading in several key battleground states that had not reported final results because they were waiting to count absentee and mail-in ballots. In Arizona, Trump was trailing at the time he spoke, because Election Day votes had not yet been counted, while mail-in votes had. The Trump campaign insisted that it could still win Arizona and pushed back against Fox News, which had called the state for Democrat Joe Biden. Trump spoke in the East Room of the White House shortly after 2:00 a.m. EST, saying that he had anticipated the exact scenario that had unfolded. “They knew they couldn’t win,” he said, “so they said let’s go to court. “And did I predict this, Newt [Gingrich]? Did i say this? “I’ve been saying this from the day I heard they were going to send out tens of millions of ballots. I said...

    Three NYU students — including a med-school hopeful — claim they were unfairly suspended from school after photos showed them maskless at an off-campus party before the semester started. Student athletes Elnaz “Elle” Pourasgari, Marc Santonocito and Ashley Storino all filed suit against the university last month after the trio and eight other students were suspended following an anonymous tip to the school that they appeared in the photos not social distancing or wearing masks at a party. But the trio claims they were following state and city guidelines by holding the gathering at one of their own off-campus apartments before the fall semester had even begun and they were sticking to a tight-knit “bubble” of friends — mostly limited to the track and field team members — as per the recommended policy on Aug. 14 when the photos were taken. “NYU believes it has the right to control its students’ actions anywhere in the universe during the students’ break,” plaintiff lawyer Karen Edler said during Manhattan Supreme Court oral arguments held via video Thursday. Edler argued that the...

    During a campaign rally on Friday night, President Donald Trump said that he will win reelection as long as Democrats are not allowed to “cheat,” Newsweek reported. Speaking to a crowd of supporters at Williamsburg International Airport in Newport News, Virginia, Trump said that the Democratic Party is orchestrating an unprecedented “scam” to defeat him. “We’re going to win. We’re not going to lose this except if they cheat, that’s the way I look at it,” he began, accusing his political opponents of trying to “destroy” the United States. “We can’t let this happen and this is a scam and they know and the media knows it but the media doesn’t want to cover it.” Trump then urged his supporters to stay vigilant and pay attention to what is happening at polling places across the nation. “We’re all watching, law enforcement are watching all over the place but it’s very hard to watch, millions of ballots, very hard to watch,” he said, stressing that the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee Joe Biden can only win if there is widespread “mischief.” The...
    (KPIX) — The San Francisco 49ers came out of New York with a 31-13 win against the Jets last Sunday. After three first-half touchdown drives, they led 21-3 and never looked back. But the win against one of the NFL’s worst teams exacted a big cost. The already banged-up 49ers suffered multiple key injuries that will surely have larger ramifications for the season. Defensive end Nick Bosa, last year’s NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, and tackle Solomon Thomas left the game in the first quarter with knee injuries. (It has since been confirmed that both suffered torn ACLs that will end their seasons.) Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a high ankle sprain that kept him out after halftime. Running back Raheem Mostert sprained his MCL; RB Tevin Coleman sprained his knee. So many injuries, specifically leg injuries, led Kyle Shanahan to question the safety of the new artificial turf at MetLife Stadium. Stream your local NFL On CBS game live with CBS All Access. The 49ers return to New York this Sunday, this time to face the Giants on the...

    A woman who said she was in the car that drove through a group of protesters in New York's Times Square, described being harassed before getting into the vehicle and later receiving death threats. A video of the incident shows a Ford Taurus driving through a crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters, including people appearing to block the vehicle with bicycles, during a rainy Thursday evening. The vehicle then stops momentarily before speeding off. "What happened last night was not a peaceful protest," Juliet Germanotta said Friday on Facebook Live.

"If you go through a red light when there are people in the crosswalk, you are accepting the chance that you hit somebody," the protester said.

    Schools in New York look likely to reopen for in-person classes in the fall amid COVID-19 outbreak. In an interview on WAMC Radio in Albany over the weekend, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that schools will be opening up for in-person learning as long as the infection rate continues to stay steady. Infection rates statewide has remained at approximately 1 percent for several weeks, though there have been occasional fluctuations in the numbers due to small spikes in some regions. "Yes, if things stay where they are today, we're going to open schools," Cuomo said during the interview. "If you see a shift, then it will be different.
