    NEW YORK (AP) — Good Morning America co-host Michael Strahan is going to space next month. Strahan, who turned 50 on Sunday, will join Laura Shepard Churchley, the eldest daughter of astronaut Alan Shepard, on the Dec. 9 mission aboard the New Shepard, a spacecraft named after her father, the first American in space. The Blue Origin flight, the company headed by Jeff Bezos, will also carry four paying customers and will be the third by the New Shepard craft this year to shuttle humans to space, the first to carry six people. It will launch from West Texas for the 10-minute flight. Blue Origin has not disclosed the ticket price for paying customers. The passengers will experience three to four minutes of weightlessness before their capsule parachutes onto the desert just 10 minutes after liftoff. That’s five minutes less than Alan Shepard’s 1961 Mercury flight. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and Star Trek star William Shatner flew to space on an earlier New Shepard flight this year.

    Former President Donald Trump went on a rant over the indictment against the Trump Organization during his Florida rally Saturday night. The Trump Organization and chief financial officer Allen Weisslberg were indicted last week, facing charges of tax fraud. Trump brought it up as he railed against the Mueller investigation on Saturday, saying it’s something “you would see in a third world nation… reminiscent of a communist dictatorship targeting your political opponents.” “It’s a fascist and authoritarian and — the people who talk about democracy are literally destroying it before our very eyes,” he said. “The radical left continues to search for a crime and wreck lives, break laws, violate every principle of justice, fairness, and liberty,” Trump continued. “It’s really called prosecutorial misconduct. It’s a terrible, terrible thing. There’s no depth to which the radical left will not sink to stop our Make America Great Again movement.” He brought up Hunter Biden and the Clinton Foundation to say prosecutors “leave Democrats alone” but “mobilize every power of government to come after me.” At one point Trump addressed the specific...
    VIDEO5:0905:09National Urban League's Marc Morial sees a shortage of good-paying jobsPower Lunch The pandemic has left Americans wanting higher wages and increased workplace benefits, CEO of the National Urban League Marc Morial told CNBC on Friday. "I sense that there's a shortage of good-paying jobs because this labor shortage is at the lower end of the economic ladder," Morial said on "Power Lunch."  Meanwhile, the former mayor of New Orleans said the situation has left employers with two choices to contend with. "I think smart employers will face either, 'I pay more wages' or 'I can't meet customer demand." Seventy percent of jobs that were lost during Covid have come back, Morial said, reassuring that the labor market is recovering at a faster pace now than following the Great Recession. The Labor Department reported Friday that payrolls increased 850,000 in June, topping a Dow Jones estimate of 706,000. Wages were up 0.3% last month and 3.6% higher than a year ago, in line with expectations. "We've got to follow the evidence and the evidence shows that in those states, for...

    I was raised in Brooklyn, working and living in this community for the majority of my life, and I have never seen my community in as much pain as the coronavirus pandemic has caused. Many of our neighbors have lost their jobs, and many are worried about how they will afford their rent. All too often, we see low-income families left behind, but we can avoid this by advocating for projects that generate good-paying jobs and affordable housing in our communities.  As we recover from this pandemic, we must ensure that every household has access to a living wage and affordable housing. We have an opportunity in front of us to welcome more of both to our community with the new development proposal at 840 Atlantic Avenue.  The proposed rezoning at 840 Atlantic Avenue would not only ensure that our workers have a sustainable living and much-needed affordable and market-rate housing but also incorporate what is all too often missing for lower-income areas, community programming like the proposed arts partnership with Creative Outlet.

    A group of young women in California made up for their actions after skipping out of a restaurant before paying for their meal. The group who ate at K-Elements BBQ in San Francisco on April 10 sent a letter apologizing for dining and dashing, and they included the money to cover their tab, the establishment's owners said. CALIFORNIA RESTAURANT THAT DEFIED COVID RULES CONTINUES OPERATING WITH GENERATOR AFTER JUDGE AUTHORIZES CITY TO CUT THE POWER The group, according to the letter sent to the owner, thought the deal they had ordered was $29.99 per table, not per person, according to CBS San Francisco Bay Area. Surveillance cameras captured the three women smiling and walking away from the restaurant. “We are extremely sorry for any inconveniences we may have caused. … At the time we didn’t have anywhere near enough money and could not afford what we had eaten and came to an irresponsible and irrational decision,” read the letter, which is signed as "the 3 girls." “We didn’t have the money at the time, but we have now gathered enough...
    Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Sonja have led European royals paying tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh on the day of his funeral.  Carl XVI Gustaf, a distant cousin of the Queen through his great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria, described Prince Philip as a 'good friend' in a tribute shared following his death last week.

    A portrait of George Floyd is seen during a Black Lives Matter protest on June 17, 2020, in New York City. In preparation for the upcoming murder trial of former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin on Friday, the city approved $1.18 million in funding for communications, including plans to hire six social media influencers. The goal was to use a flat rate of $2,000 per influencer to have them reinforce the city's messaging directly targeting people of color in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, city officials told CBS Minnesota. The city, however, is backtracking on the plan after it garnered fair criticism from activists. Toussaint Morrison, an activist with an Instagram following of more than 11,000 users, told CBS Minnesota he's worried about the predictable bias coming from influencers paid by the city. “The key word here is ‘city-approved’,” he told the news station. “What do you think the message is going to be? It’s going to be pro-city, it’s going to be anti-protest.” City officials clarified their plan on Monday during a virtual public safety meeting preparing for the trial. David Rubedor,...
    Sen. Tim Scott slammed President Biden for his executive order revoking the Keystone XL Pipeline permit, which subsequently ended more than 1,000 jobs at one energy firm. “Example 1: 1,000 good paying jobs gone and it’s just Day 3 of the Biden presidency. Keep in mind, this isn’t just 1,000 jobs, it’s 1,000 families,” the South Carolina Republican tweeted Saturday, linking to a report from the Hill. “This week, I spoke to my friend @SenDanSullivan about Biden’s Executive Orders & he had said that 100s of Alaskan jobs are immediately at risk b/c of the unilateral actions on the American energy industry. These aren’t just statistics, they’re lives & families,” he continued.

    A Good Samaritan paid off every layaway item at a Tenessee Walmart this week after being "blessed" with the money to do so, the store's manager, Sean Templeton, told Fox News.  The $65,000 all-cash donation brought customers at the Bristol, Tenn. location to tears.  AMERICA TOGETHER: TEXAS MOM WRITES 'SANTA LETTERS' FOR FRONT-LINE PARENTS Templeton said it was the most "mind-blowing" act of kindness he had ever witnessed in his nearly 18 years at the store.

    The City of Denver is speeding up its Elevate Denver bond program to help accelerate recovery from the COVID-19-induced economic downturn. "Now more than ever, people in our community need access to good-paying jobs, so we’re deploying the same job-creating tools used to bring us out of past recessions by accelerating the Elevate Denver Bond Program to help rebuild our local economy, get people back to work and make neighborhood improvements sooner," Mayor Michael Hancock says in a statement about the move, which echoes one made over a decade ago. On October 13, a Denver City Council committee approved a new debt issuance of about $170 million that will go toward infrastructure projects funded by the Elevate Denver bond program, authorized by a ballot initiative passed by Denver voters in 2017. The city had originally planned on issuing $77 million in bonds, then decided to go bigger, faster.Related Stories Mayor Hancock Proposing Major Cuts for 2021 Denver Budget Will City Elevate Denver Bond Projects to Boost Economy?

    It literally pays to be nice to people. A McDonald’s worker in the U.K. recently went viral when she was filmed paying for a customer’s order because of a nice gesture he made while ordering. It turns out this worker regularly pays for meals as a way of rewarding kind or thoughtful behavior. Enya Vegnere only gets paid about $9 per hour working at a McDonald’s in Coventry, England, but that doesn’t stop her from using her own money to help out certain customers, The Sun reports. By her own account, she’s spent about $64 since she started working at the restaurant in January. “I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve done it,” she told The Sun. “I don’t do it for rude customers, just the people who are polite to me. My motto is ‘takers eat better but givers sleep better.’” SUBWAY EMPLOYEES ASKED TO DESCRIBE THE 'STRANGEST ORDERS' THEY'VE EVER FULFILLED “I don’t do it for recognition," she added. "I just think it’s nice to do nice things for people. You never know what someone is going through...
