    Additional signs aimed at preventing speeding are coming to a Fairfax County, Virginia, corridor where two students were hit and killed earlier this summer. The county’s Board of Supervisors this week voted to support a plan that would add “Watch for Children” signs in multiple places on the Blake Lane corridor and several “$200 Additional Fine for Speeding” signs on Blake Lane between Sutton Road and Route 29. It’s the county’s latest push to encourage drivers to slow down on the road near Oakton High School, where a June crash killed two students and seriously injured a third. Supervisor Dalia Palchik, of Providence District, said there’s a team working on education and awareness, in addition to engineering improvements in the area. Palchik said she’d also like to see the lanes less wide, because research indicates wider lanes prompt drivers to speed. More Fairfax County News Many of the county’s roads were built “in the ’90s, in a time when they were focused mostly on getting traffic through as quickly as possible,” Palchik said. “Now, we really are trying...

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS) — About 6,000 workers at four Atlantic City casinos are preparing to go on strike Friday morning, ahead of a historically busy Fourth of July weekend. The workers, who are members of UNITE HERE Local 54, include housekeepers, bartenders, catering staff and cooks at The Borgata, Caesar’s, Harrah’s and Tropicana. READ MORE: Man Killed In Road Rage Shooting In Springfield Identified, Authorities SayThe union is demanding higher wages, claiming current salaries are lower compared to salaries at similar jobs in the market. Union representatives believe higher wages could attract more workers, which would alleviate an ongoing casino labor shortage. Gloria Rosario, a chef at The Borgata, said all week customers at the buffet line have been coming up to her, expressing anxiety about the potential strike. “They say, ‘Oh my gosh, a strike. Are you serious? We’re not coming then,'” Rosario recalled. “We’re serious with this [strike].

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” White House Council of Economic Advisers Chair Cecilia Rouse, who also served on the Council of Economic Advisers during the Obama administration stated that we are in “a different economic situation” now than when former President Obama dismissed a gas tax holiday as a “gimmick[.]” Co-host Joe Kernen asked, “Did you agree with him back then? And have you changed your view, or is it different this time around?” Rouse responded, “Look, this is a different economic situation. Right now, we are coming out of a global pandemic — or at least we hope we’re coming out it. We have Russia’s war on Ukraine. There’s a lot of uncertainty. We have record inflation. And so, this president, while very proud of the growth and — in our economy last year and the strength of our labor market, also very much understands the cost of inflation for American families. We know that a lot of the inflation has been caused over the last several months by Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. Because that has generated increases...
    Former Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon warned Bill Barr “we’re coming for you, bro” on his War Room: Pandemic show. Bannon took issue with the testimony of Barr’s played at the congressional hearings by the committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot. Barr was questioned about Trump’s election fraud claims, which he called “bullshit” — and he dismissed other conservatives pushing such theories too, like Dinesh D’Souza who directed the election documentary 2000 Mules. Bannon accused Barr of “lying” and even smearing Trump supporters like D’Souza with his testimony. “We’re not going to be blown off by somebody like Bill Barr. Bill Barr, we’re coming for you, bro! You’re sitting there lying about this. If you had any decency whatsoever … you would have reached out to Dinesh D’Souza before you smeared him,” Bannon said. Bannon then mentioned some potential legal action, though he did not specify what this would be. He warned that the “days” of MAGA supporters and “deplorables” sitting around is over. And the War Room host also blasted Barr for allegedly not investigating the claims of...
    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The NBA’s youngest team to reach a conference semifinal in the past 25 years has wasted little time turning disappointment into motivation. Yes, the Memphis Grizzlies soaked in every lesson to help chase their first NBA championship. “This is going to motivate us moving forward,” Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins said. “The growth individually, the growth collectively from this season, it’s only going to make us better. This is a step in the direction of this bright future that we talk about all the time.” The Grizzlies have been taking big strides since a franchise reorganization in April 2019. They’ve gone from being knocked out of the playoff chase in the Orlando bubble in August 2020 to earning the No. 8 seed through the play-in tournament a year ago. The NBA’s second youngest team earned the West’s No. 2 seed for the first time by matching the most wins in franchise history with 56. The Grizzlies won their first playoff series in seven years in six games before losing in six games to the...
    Inside The NBA has been on TV sets for over 30 years and one of the big reasons why is the crew’s ability to let loose and go a bit off the rails at times. Wednesday night was no different as the veteran cast, pushing 1 a.m local time, broke out in laughter after Charles Barkley worded a transition horribly wrong. Shaquille O’Neal and Ernie Johnson were telling a story about some hijinks involving Top Ramen when Barkley decided to intervene. “I could see that coming from that camera angle, I was like ‘oh no man’,” Johnson said. “Speaking of coming,” Barkley jumped in, stunning the whole crew. “Whoa, timeout,” Kenny Smith said laughing as Chuck realized what he said. The set broke into chaos for the next 20 seconds with Shaq shedding tears on the other side of the panel. “Ladies and gentlemen, I will call it myself,” Smith said. “Chuckster we’re live,” Johnson exclaimed. “Not like we can stop him.” “That’s not what I meant, see y’all minds in the gutter,” Barkley said laughing himself. Barkley continued on...
    AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – The Aurora Police Department has a message for illegal street racers: “We’re coming after you.” From blocking traffic on interstates to big, destructive burnouts at racing meetups, the Aurora Police Department is fed up. So, they are taking more steps to crack down on illegal and often dangerous activity. (credit: CBS) “People are getting hurt, cars have been crashed,” said Agent Matt Longshore. “We’ve heard complaints from our community that also complain directly to council, so we’ve had council requests wanting to address this metro-wide issue that is affecting our community.” Over the weekend, Agent Longshore and other officers went to a handful of known racing spots – which they find using social media, police analysts and the statewide system that tracks the issue, Longshore explained. Officers were able to break up four street racing meetups, likely preventing damage to local businesses. “Street racing, people think it’s just up and down a roadway,” Longshore told CBS4’s Kelly Werthmann. “We’re talking about people who gather in these parking lots that want to do burn outs and donuts,...
    Warriors coach Steve Kerr has eight NBA championship rings — five as a player and three in his current role. There might be a few people who know how to win in the playoffs as well as Kerr, but no one knows more than him. Keep that in mind when I tell you that the Warriors will beat the Denver Nuggets in the team’s first-round playoff series. But on Sunday, Golden State missed their chance to take care of business and end the showdown in the minimum four games. Denver beat the Warriors 126-121, forcing a Game 5 Wednesday in San Francisco. Kerr saw the loss coming. He warned his team in the first quarter. They didn’t heed the lesson until it was too late. With the Warriors trailing the Nuggets early, Kerr called a timeout and called out his team. ESPN cameras picked it all up: “It feels to me like we smell blood and we’re trying too hard,” Kerr said. “We’re going for the kill. It doesn’t work that way. You get the kill by executing to death...
    Getty Tom Brady T he end of Tom Brady’s career with the New England Patriots will be talked about for eternity. The departure of the greatest player in NFL history from the team that drafted him was the start of a chapter in Brady’s career that no one in New England saw coming. The storybook ending to his time in the NFL seemed to be hanging up his cleats with the Patriots. That of course didn’t end up happening. Brady went to Tampa Bay to play for the Buccaneers and ended up winning a Super Bowl in his first season in the NFC. Patriots fans pondered what could have been if he stayed in New England? Fans got an insight into what that final year was like thanks to Brady’s ESPN+ series “The Man In The Arena,” finale. Both Brady and his father, Tom Brady Sr. talked about the end of his career in New England. “I kinda had been through a personal journey, where I was maturing in different ways and different things were becoming priorities in...
    White House/Zuma Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Last week, President Biden approved a budget that included no additional Covid spending. None. The consequences will be drastic. A federal program that reimburses health care providers for vaccinating, testing, and treating uninsured patients is set to end by April 5. The government will scale back its allocations of monoclonal antibodies. And the White House just announced that it won’t have enough funding to purchase fourth vaccine doses for all Americans. How can this happen after all we’ve learned? Both political parties are responsible: President Joe Biden had proposed $22.5 billion in additional Covid funding, while many Republicans opposed any further Covid spending at all. A coalition of Democrats then refused the alternative option of repurposing individual states’ unspent pandemic relief funds. Add in concerns about the budget deficit, and, in the end, Covid efforts ended up with no funding at all. But a still-mutating virus isn’t bound by the government’s whims. As Ed Yong wrote in The Atlantic last week, “Before...
    Florida's GOP-dominated legislature passed the controversial 'Don't Say Gay Bill' Tuesday which forbids instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade. The move came despite heavy criticism from Democrats and backlash from students and LGBTQ advocates who organized walk outs and protests. The proposal, sponsored by Rep. Joe Harding, now moves to the desk of Governor Ron DeSantis, who is expected to sign it into law.  Harding had voiced concerns that coming out as gay was becoming 'a trend' for children. He also pushed for an amendment that would have essentially forced schools to out children to their parents, but moved to withdraw it last week.    He and other GOP lawmakers in Florida have argued that parents should be broaching these subjects with their children, rather than educators.   The measure has sparked a swell of 'Proud to Be Gay' protests by students across Florida, who have showcased the transgender and LGBTQ flags at the state capitol in Tallahassee. DeSantis has indicated support for the bill and has signed similar controversial proposals such as the Fairness in Women's Sport Act, which banned transgender female athletes from competing...
    President Joe Biden used part of his State of the Union address on Tuesday to go after President Vladimir Putin and Russian oligarchs amid Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine. “Together with our allies –we are right now enforcing powerful economic sanctions. We are cutting off Russia’s largest banks from the international financial system,” said Biden in front of Congress. “Preventing Russia’s central bank from defending the Russian ruble, making Putin’s $630 billion ‘war fund’ worthless. We are choking off Russia’s access to technology that will sap its economic strength and weaken its military for years to come.” Biden then turned to his message for Russian oligarchs, some of whom the United States and its allies have already announced sanctions against in response to the invasion. “Tonight I say to the Russian oligarchs and corrupt leaders who bilked billions of dollars off this violent regime: No more,” he said. “I mean it.” Biden announced that “the United States Department of Justice is assembling a dedicated task force to go after the crimes of Russian oligarchs. We’re joining with our European allies to...
    Obama-era foreign policy advisor Ben Rhodes said Tuesday after President Biden announced fresh sanctions on Russia that Vladimir Putin was not 'in any way caught off guard,' nor did he seem to care.  Biden said two Russian financial institutions, VTB and Russia's military bank, will face sanctions. He also said Russia's sovereign debt will be sanctioned so Russia 'can no longer raise money from the West and cannot trade its new debt on our markets, or European markets either.' He also promised financial restrictions on a slew of Russian oligarchs and their families and announced plans to send more troops to the region.  'I think again, the challenge here is, Vladimir Putin doesn't seem to care. He knew that these sanctions were coming,' the former White House advisor said on MSNBC. 'I think the U.S. had communicated to Russia precisely the kind of sanctions that would be coming, so I don't think he's in any way caught off guard by this announcement.' 'I think again, the challenge here is, Vladimir Putin doesn't seem to care. He knew that these sanctions...
    (CBS4) – Colorado is the No. 3 best state to retire in. That’s according to WalletHub which released a list last week analyzing the best places in the country where you can “keep more money in your pocket without requiring a drastic lifestyle change” when you retire. The Centennial State’s score was so high in part because WalletHub gave it high marks for health-related factors and affordability. It got low marks for the property crime rate, however. The study caught the attention of Gov. Jared Polis, who wrote on Facebook that he’s proud of the ranking in part because he “signed a bill last year getting rid of state taxes on all Social Security income.” WalletHub’s top 5 states to retire in for 2022 are as follows: 1. Florida 2. Virginia 3. Colorado 4. Delaware 5. Minnesota New Jersey came up as the worst state to retire in. The ranking prompted Polis to write: “It’s no secret that Colorado is voted one of the best states to retire! Lookout Florida and Virginia, we’re coming for you!”
    President Joe Biden visited the site of Friday’s bridge collapse in Pittsburgh and promised “We’re going to fix” all of the bridges in the city. A bridge collapsed Friday morning just hours before the president’s visit to speak about infrastructure, and to call for additional investments. On Friday afternoon, the president stopped on the way to his speech to tour the site, and spoke to reporters and first responders for several minutes. The president began by asking first responders for details about the incident, which also caused a gas leak that necessitated the shutting down of gas lines. Biden then told reporters “You all realize I’ve been coming to Pittsburgh a long time. And as a former Pennsylvanian. But — I didn’t realize there are literally more bridges in Pittsburgh than any other city in the world.” “Did you know that? More than Venice. I mean, I knew there were a lot of bri– I had no idea of that. And we’re going to you’re going to fix them all. Not a joke. This is going to be a gigantic change,” the...
    The Texas Synagogue attacker chillingly told his brother over the phone “we’re coming to f***ing America” to give Americans a “f***ing war”, in a recording of a telephone call that allegedly took place shortly before he was shot dead by the FBI. Malik Faisal Akram, 44, who held four people hostage at Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas told his brother Gulbar, 43, in his final phone call to his family “we’re coming to f***ing America” for a “f***ing war”, The Jewish Chronicle reports of audio recordings they claim to have acquired from a law-enforcement source. “I’m opening the doors for every youngster in England to enter America and f*** with them”, Malik said in the recording. The terrorist made it clear that he did not want to leave the hostage situation alive, even though a man speaking on the call identifiers as his brother Gulbar tried to persuade him to give himself up while speaking to him from a police station in Blackburn. “Just pack it in mate, you’ll get a bit of time and you’ll come out”, Gulbar said, advising his brother...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci says Vice President Kamala Harris was “taken a bit out of context” in a recent statement in which she said that the Biden administration didn’t see the Delta or Omicron Covid variants coming. Fauci spoke to NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday to address rising coronavirus case numbers and the remarks President Joe Biden will deliver on the subject in the coming days. Todd concluded the interview by bringing up a series of comments Harris recently made to the Los Angeles Times, wherein she seemed to say the White House was blindsided by the emergence of new Covid variants. “We didn’t see Delta coming,” Harris said, as reported by the Times. “I think most scientists did not — upon whose advice and direction we have relied — didn’t see Delta coming. We didn’t see Omicron coming. And that’s the nature of what this, this awful virus has been, which as it turns out, has mutations and variants.” “Dr. Fauci, perhaps nobody could’ve seen the specific of Delta or Omicron,” Todd said, “but did you not see variants coming,...

    Ilhan Omar and Eric Swalwell said Wednesday they were two of the three lawmakers who received a call from a Florida man who was convicted of threatening to kill and behead members of Congress. Frank Anthony Pezzuto, 73, was found guilty on Wednesday by a federal jury of sending 'three separate threatening communications to injure certain members of Congress,' according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Middle District of Florida. 'The use of violent rhetoric in political speech is incitement & is definitely creating an environment where members of Congress are receiving constant death threats. Enough!' the progressive Democratic representative from Minnesota tweeted. 'Today, Florida man who left this chilling message with my staff was convicted,' she added. Swalwell tweeted: Thank you to prosecution team at @DOJCrimDiv for convicting Anthony Pezzuto, who threatened to kill me & 2 of my colleagues. Too many people today are choosing violence over voting to enact political change. We must hold all to account.'

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Those who run Philadelphia’s elections say they are still receiving serious threats from the public, one year since ballots were cast in a contentious presidential election. Philadelphia’s three city commissioners have all received death threats since last election.

    On Friday’s broadcast of Fox News Radio’s “Brian Kilmeade Show,” Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) stated that the Biden administration knew that the massive group of Haitian migrants were coming to the United States, but “the administration couldn’t make up their minds as to what action to take. And before they knew it, 15,000 people were in Del Rio, almost a third of the population of Del Rio, TX.” Cuellar said, “[W]e have intel. of all these people, whether it’s from the government or through just reporting like your folks are doing. We know that the people are coming here. They know that — we’ve known this for a long time. Just like when the Haitians were coming in, we knew that they were coming in.

    On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm stated that natural gas prices “are high” because “the supplies are not as robust as they have been.” And “this is all coming off,” “a real downturn in the economy due to COVID.” After discussing gasoline prices, Granholm stated, “Natural gas prices are slightly different. Again, that’s very regional. It’s — what is happening in Europe, natural gas prices are not the global market that oil prices are. So, in the U.S., our natural gas supplies are okay. The prices, though, are high because they’re not as robust, the supplies are not as robust as they have been. So, this is all coming off, as you note in your report, a real downturn in the economy due to COVID. You can’t flip a switch and turn all of those rigs back on. They are coming on, but it’s slow. So, that’s one of the reasons why the prices are high, of course. And on the gasoline/oil side it is a global market, and that’s what we’re seeing. Europe has...

    President Joe Biden on Monday released a statement celebrating “National Coming Out Day,” using it to wokely emphasize his administration’s commitment to the “LGBTQ+ community.” “Today, we celebrate National Coming Out Day and the courage of LGBTQ+ people who live their lives with pride, create community with open arms and hearts, and showcase the strength of being your authentic self,” Biden said in a Monday statement, adding slightly to the more traditional LGBT acronym, making it “LGBTQ+.” “Today and every day, I want every member of the LGBTQ+ community to know that you are loved and accepted just the way you are – regardless of whether or not you’ve come out,” he continued, explaining his administration is committed to “ensuring that LGBTQ+ people can live openly, proudly, and freely in every corner of our nation.” Biden touted leading an administration with “LGBTQ+ officials” who are “serving openly at the highest levels of government” — a likely reference to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

    LOGAN SQUARE — A few months after “School of Rock” drummer Kevin Clark was killed by a driver while riding his bike at Logan Boulevard and Western Avenue, the city is making safety improvements to the notoriously dangerous intersection. In collaboration with Ald. Scott Waguespack (32nd) and Ald. Daniel La Spata (1st), the city’s Department of Transportation is installing protected bike lanes with plastic posts and road markings on Logan Boulevard from just west of Western Avenue to Diversey Avenue, a city diagram shows. Streetsblog Chicago was first to report on the plan. To install the bike lanes, the city is reducing the traffic lanes on Logan Boulevard, city spokesman Mike Claffey said. The bike lanes will be parking protected from Elston Avenue to Diversey Avenue, Claffey said. The city is also “refreshing” the intersection’s crosswalks and prohibiting drivers from making right turns onto Western Avenue from Logan Boulevard. Construction is expected to start in mid-September and take several weeks. The project is being funded through Waguespack’s and La Spata’s ward menu funds, Claffey said. An amount was not...

    A former Republican candidate for mayor of San Francisco says the city is run by ‘left-wing ideologues’ whose calls to defund the police are responsible for low morale among cops and whose policies are to blame for the rise in crime. Richie Greenberg made the comments just a day after video emerged on social media showing shoplifters brazenly making off with stolen goods after ransacking a local Neiman Marcus store. Crime statistics indicate an increase in burglaries this year compared to 2020, with critics blasting the progressive district attorney, Chesa Boudin, for being too lax in meting out punishments to offenders.  ‘I called this years ago and we see this is now coming to fruition,’ Greenberg told Fox News on Wednesday. ‘It’s astounding, it’s jaw-dropping, it’s completely unacceptable...it’s outrageous,’ he said.

    A 21-year-old man from Atlantic County has been arrested for saying a gang was about to "shoot up" a Jersey Shore high school, authorities said. The man's alleged Snapchat threats were directed at specific students in Little Egg Harbor, according to Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer.

    Carter Mecher had only ever wanted to be a doctor. He'd grown up in a big, working-class family in Chicago where his toolmaker father had encouraged him to tackle problems with the same confidence that he shaped steel. Carter's mind would lock into a problem in the same way it did when he was fixing a car engine. That was when he was at his best. An inability to pay attention to anything except that which you find totally riveting might not sound the most promising trait in a medical student. But almost by process of elimination, it led Carter to his calling: critical care. From the moment he walked into an intensive care unit, he sensed it was where he was meant to be.  If you didn't allow yourself to become numb, the place kept you alive to the complexity of life, and its sanctity. In October 2005, the US government wanted someone who could think 'outside the box' to join a small team devoted to pandemic planning. To staff at the Department of Veterans' Affairs, one name came to...
    More than 100 black and red handprints have been discovered on the walls of a cave in Mexico that may have been created during an ancient Mayan ritual. Archeologists say most of the 137 prints were made by children some 1,200 years ago and believe it was part of a coming-of-age ritual when children entered puberty. The cave, located near the northern tip of the Yucatan peninsula, is surrounded by large pyramid-like ruins and sits some 33 feet beneath a ceiba tree that is considered sacred in Mayan beliefs. Archeologist Sergio Grosjean, who is working at the site, said: ‘They imprinted their hands on the walls in black... which symbolized death, but that didn't mean they were going to be killed, but rather death from a ritual perspective.’ ‘Afterwards, these children imprinted their hands in red, which was a reference to war or life.’ More than 100 black and red handprints have been discovered on the walls of a cave in Mexico that may have been created during an ancient Mayan ritual.

    Brooklyn Center resident Lisa Christensen, who served as an alternate juror in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, said she was “concerned about people” coming to her home if they were “not happy with the verdict” in the case. Speaking to KARE 11’s Lou Raguse, Christensen, who said she was ultimately “disappointed” when she discovered she would serve as an alternate juror, initially had “mixed feelings” about the possibility of being a juror in the controversial case. “I had mixed feelings. There was a question on the questionnaire about it and I put I did not know. The reason, at that time, was I did not know what the outcome was going to be, so I felt like either way you are going to disappoint one group or the other,” she said, explaining she did “not want to go through rioting and destruction again.” “And I was concerned about people coming to my house if they were not happy with the verdict,” she admitted. Nevertheless, Christensen said she would have voted guilty “on some level.” “After I...
