As students nationwide kick off fall classes in a new virtual environment, one Black seventh grader in Colorado is waiting to find out if he will attend school again this fall at all. What started off as a normal day of virtual learning ended with the police being called on the 12-year-old boy because he was playing with a toy gun during virtual art class. Now the boy, Isaiah, has a record with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office, and received a five-day suspension from the school and a mark on his school disciplinary paperwork saying he brought a “facsimile of a firearm to school” even though he never left his house.
WASHINGTON – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday the House will stay in session until a breakthrough is made on a coronavirus stimulus bill, while moderate lawmakers pressed leaders to come up with a relief deal before the November elections. "We are committed to staying here until we have an agreement, an agreement that meets the needs of the American people,” Pelosi said on CNBC Tuesday. Her words signaled relief talks between congressional Democrats and President Donald Trump's White House may be salvaged even though the two sides don't appear any closer to an agreement.
The US deported a key witness in an ongoing investigation into sexual abuse at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in El Paso, ProPublica and The Texas Tribune reported Tuesday. According to the report, the woman said she came to the US to avoid persecution by a drug cartel, after reporting a high-ranking member to the police for sexual assault. An immigrant woman who accused several guards of sexually abusing her and other inmates at a Texas detention center has been deported, despite her being a key witness in an investigation into her claim, The Texas Tribune and ProPublica reported.
Divers have found what they believe is the wreck of a U.S. Navy submarine lost 77 years ago in Southeast Asia, providing a coda to a stirring but little-known tale from World War II. The divers have sent photos and other evidence from six dives they made from October 2019 to March this year to the United States Naval History and Heritage Command for verification that they have found the USS Grenadier, one of 52 American submarines lost during the conflict. The 1,475-ton, 307-foot long Grenadier was scuttled by its crew after bombs from a Japanese plane almost sent them to a watery grave.
As the presidential race moves into its final seven weeks, with former Vice President Joe Biden holding a lead that remains steady but not conclusive, he and President Trump face contrasting challenges, new data from a USC Dornsife poll show. Independents and voters who lean Republican, groups that make up a large share of the remaining swing voters, judge Biden to be considerably more liberal than themselves, the poll finds. Trump faces a different challenge: Not only is he behind, but a slice of his potential supporters are iffy about voting, the poll finds.
According to a new CDC report, roughly 0.03% of coronavirus cases in kids and teens under 21 have been fatal so far — very few deaths. It's another stark indicator that racism is the biggest reason that Black and brown Americans have a higher likelihood of dying from the coronavirus. According to a new report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, very few children who've gotten sick with the coronavirus have died.
Coronavirus: Some school districts are willing to open up public schools — for a price Instead, the hospital gave me an electrocardiogram (EKG), a chest X-ray, IV fluids, a flu test, a pregnancy test, and later a bill for $5,000, of which $3,500 was my responsibility. I can't afford that on my teacher's salary. Not incidentally, in May, I tested positive for having antibodies to COVID, proving I almost certainly had it.
The estate of Frank Ordonez, the UPS driver killed in a Dec. 5 shootout after a Coral Gables-to-Miramar pursuit of armed robbers, hit six law enforcement agencies with a negligence lawsuit Monday in Broward County Circuit Court. Named as defendants in the suit, which also includes shot civilian Carlo Lara as a plaintiff: the Miami Police Department, Florida Highway Patrol, Broward Sheriff's Office, and the Miramar, Pembroke Pines and Doral police Departments. The suit faults officers from these agencies with creating the situation for the tragic events by showing negligence in their pursuit of the UPS truck, “thereby leading to the eventual shootout in the close vicinity of occupied civilian...
Bloomberg's advisers say his Florida investment offers multiple benefits for Democrats: It frees up Democratic cash, allowing the campaign and outside groups to focus on other key swing states; it requires Republicans to spend more heavily to make up for the disparity there; and a decisive win by Biden in Florida could help tamp down efforts most Democrats are expecting from Trump to discount the results of the election. Florida election officials can start counting absentee ballots weeks before Election Day, which means they're typically able to report those results — which tend to favor Democrats — that night.
A cascade of false assumptions, mismanagement, rushed deadlines, miscommunication and outright deception led to the failure to catch the design flaws that led to two deadly crashes of Boeing's now-grounded 737 Max jetliner, finds a congressional report released Wednesday. "Boeing failed in its design and development of the Max, and the Federal Aviation Agency failed in its oversight of Boeing and its certification of the aircraft," concludes the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee's 238-page report on the jetliner. Despite ample opportunities to have realized the plane's deadly shortcomings, the 737 Max passed muster with both Boeing and the FAA, which labeled it "compliant" in certifying it as safe to go into service with many airlines in the U.S. and abroad.
A Malaysian man says he found monkey selfies and videos on his missing phone a day after retrieving it in the jungle behind his house. The content - including footage of a monkey that appears to be trying to eat the phone - has been widely shared on social media since Zackrydz Rodzi posted it on Twitter. Mr Zackrydz, 20, told the BBC he realised his smartphone was gone when he woke up at around 11am on Saturday morning.
Despite a four-hour-long, mostly secret meeting Monday between Belarus' disputed president, Alexander Lukashenko, and Russian leader Vladimir Putin, a solution to Belarus' month of tumultuous protests over alleged electoral fraud appears no closer. While this may increase Mr. Putin's leverage over Mr. Lukashenko, who has promised much to the Kremlin over the years while delivering little, Belarusian and Russian experts say that it does not solve the most glaring, immediate problem for both Russia and the Belarusian opposition: Mr. Lukashenko's continued hold on power.
Two inmates have died in as many days from coronavirus at the federal prison complex where the U.S. government plans to carry out two executions next week. The virus deaths are likely to raise alarm with advocates and lawyers for the condemned men over the spread of coronavirus at the Federal Correctional Complex in Terre Haute, Indiana. As of Tuesday, more than 40 inmates had confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to the agency's statistics.
Almost two-thirds of millennials and Gen Zers don't know that 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, and almost half can't name a single concentration camp, an alarming new survey on Holocaust knowledge has found. The survey demonstrated wide gaps in younger American's knowledge of the genocide while also showing a concerning 15% of millennials and Gen Zers thought holding neo-Nazi views was acceptable. The survey is the fifth in a series that looks at people's knowledge of Holocaust history worldwide as well as education around the genocide.
The final House Transportation committee report on the fatal design flaws of Boeing's 737 MAX—which killed 346 people in two accidents between 2018 and 2019—show the air disasters could have been avoided. The 239-page report, which was released Wednesday, is the product of an 18-month investigation that confirmed time and again that Boeing caved into “production pressure that ultimately jeopardized the safety of the flying public.” The committee cites competition with Airbus as a primary cause of cuts in costs to maintain the 737 MAX production, even though those shortcuts were fatal.

Carbon dioxide emissions from plug-in hybrid cars are as much as two-and-a-half times higher than official tests suggest, according to new research. Plug-in hybrid vehicles are powered by an electric motor using a battery that is recharged by being plugged in or via an on-board petrol or diesel engine. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are sold as a low-carbon alternative to traditional vehicles and conventional hybrids - which cannot be recharged from an external source - and are proving increasingly popular.
Slow vote count helps Trump Whether Trump has a good case or not, expect him to contest any loss through the middle of December, knowing there may be a second chance to swipe the election, thanks to the 1887 Electoral Count Act. By the simplest reading of the act, whoever is ahead on December 14 gets the electors and, with them, the presidency,” Edward-Isaac Dovere wrote in The Atlantic. Many analysts believe that President Donald Trump will appear to be ahead during the early vote-counting — a fact that creates an incentive for him to slow the counting as much as possible.
Many people have been profiteering from the coronavirus pandemic in Mexico; prices for oxygen cylinders, medicinal alcohol and face masks all have skyrocketed. The poorly equipped, often broken-down rattletraps ply Mexico City streets listening to emergency radio dispatch frequencies and race to beat legitimate ambulance services to medical emergencies. Rachel Sieder, a Mexico City university professor, fell victim to a pirate ambulance on August 11, when a friend suffered what appeared to be an epileptic-type attack at her apartment.
The claim: The first night of the Republican National Convention had 128.4 million viewers As the political conventions wound down, posts circulated stating the viewership of the Republican National Convention simply crushed that of its counterpart, the Democratic National Convention. "Day 1 DNC : 21.4 Million Viewed. Day 1 RNC : 128.4 Million Views," a post from the page Absolute Patriot states.
