    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — “It’s kind of like a dance,” explained Shelby Frank, describing the sport of throwing discus. “You can make it look effortless or you can make it not look effortless. The way it flies out of your hand, it looks simple, but it’s really not. And it takes a lot work and a lot of patience.” READ MORE: Inspired By Japanese Art Form, 3M Creates Sustainable Alternative To Bubble WrapFrank waltzed her way into the University of Minnesota record books on Saturday in Louisiana, launching her fifth throw of the meet 190 feet and three inches. “I was super excited,” Frank said. “I got a huge response on social media. And obviously that’s always good to see. It’s always good to hear those kinds of things. But I feel for me, I’m never really satisfied with how I do. And so this isn’t my top mark. I’m gonna just keep building from here.” (credit: CBS) It was Frank’s first time setting a school record at any level. Surprising for an athlete of her caliber. The COVID...
    WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) — Delaware Gov. John Carney is proposing $5 billion for the state’s budget. It provides pay increases for some state workers, incentivizes new veterans to start working in Delaware, and allots millions for infrastructure projects for climate change, clean water, and building new schools. Carney says Delaware can move forward, thanks in part to federal pandemic relief. “So this is going to be a continued focus of ours over the next couple of years, to improve our ability as a state government to be able to provide the services that are so necessary, particularly those over the last two years are so critically important to keep our community safe, to keep all of you safe during the situation in the pandemic,” Carney said. Carney hopes to sign the new budget into law before the new fiscal year begins in July.
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The pandemic has hit the theater industry hard, and now a well-known spot in the East Village with quite a history is in danger of closing. Lorcan Otway is struggling to hold on to the legendary property he owns at 80 St. Marks Place.

It houses a popular off-Broadway theater and the William Barnacle Tavern. It began back in the prohibition era as a speakeasy. “From 1922 to 1933, this was all hidden,” Otway told CBS2’s Dave Carlin. “They let you pass through the butcher shop into an alleyway that you can’t see from the street … You’d knock on the door that was here and a little hatch would open.” Before Otway’s family owned Theater 80, it was a popular jazz club. “John Coltraine played here and Thelonius Monk,” he said. “By 1964, we started building Theater 80 and we opened with ‘You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.'” Out front, there’s...
    Families still grieving the loss of loved ones killed in the Surfside condo collapse are demanding authorities keep sifting through the rubble for as long as it takes to find remains.  Many families of the 98 victims have received just trace amounts of remains after the Florida complex collapsed on June 24.  Friends and family of New Yorker Estelle Hedaya, 54, said they received so little of the victim's remains that they could easily lift her casket.  'I could have lifted it with my pinkie,' her best friend Lisa Shrem told the Washington Post.  So little of New Yorker Estelle Hedaya's remains were found in the collapse of the Surfside condo in Miami. Her best friend Lisa Shrem said: 'I could have lifted it [her casket] with my pinkie' After the initial recovery effort at the site, officials moved the rubble to a location 14 miles from the condos, near Miami International Airport.  The rubble has been divided into two piles, based on supposed value of the evidence it might hold. The portions that crews have determined to contain possible remains are moved...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Before last season, the New York Knicks had few expectations and no real star power. Julius Randle changed a lot in New York. He led the Knicks to a surprising playoff berth and turned himself into an All-Star who was rewarded over the summer with a contract extension. Now, the Knicks believe they are in a good position going into this season and set up for success in the future. “I think getting established as a team last year, getting credibility by the degree of how hard, how smart and how together, it makes it appealing for other people to look at us,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “And we have to win.” The Knicks did much more of that than expected in 2020-21, going 41-31 to finish fourth in the Eastern Conference and make the playoffs for the first time since 2013. Randle was a runaway winner of the Most Improved Player award and Thibodeau was voted Coach of the Year. They could be even better this season after bringing in Kemba Walker and Evan Fournier...

    The Atlanta Hawks and free agent forward John Collins have agreed to a massive new contract. While he initially tested the market, the Atlanta Hawks were able to retain forward John Collins in his high-profile restricted free agency. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports Atlanta and Collins have agreed to a five-year deal worth $125 million with a player option in that fifth year. Collins was a former first-round pick out of Wake Forest by the Hawks in 2017. While he was inconsistent at times in the Hawks’ latest playoff run, at his best, he is the team’s second-best player, behind only point guard Trae Young. Atlanta is clearly planning on building a championship contender around Young and Collins now.

    THE rubble of the collapsed Miami condo has "no liveable space left" as hope for survivors began to fade and the death toll rose to 36, officials said on Tuesday.

    (CNN)A family suing the Champlain Towers South condo association names the engineering firm that performed a 2018 structural analysis of the building as a defendant, arguing the firm should have more thoroughly examined the building's stability.Maryland-based Morabito Consultants should have done so by "inspecting the sub-surface foundation," the lawsuit says. A large portion of the condo tower crumbled to the ground last week, killing at least 18 people and leaving 147 unaccounted for. Attorneys for the family of Harold Rosenberg, who remains unaccounted for, filed the suit Wednesday, alleging that after Morabito completed the 2018 structural analysis it should have submitted a written report to the town of Surfside certifying that the condo was structurally safe. "The Morabito report did not certify that the building 'is structurally and electrically safe ... for continued occupancy,'" the suit states.Read More"Instead, in an apparent attempt to wash away its failures in the wake of this tragedy, Defendant Morabito submitted this report ... approximately 16 hours after the Champlain Towers South building collapsed," the suit states, referring to a document that firm president Frank...

Coyote, the self-anointed geniuses in the political media just keep trying to spring new traps on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. And like the Road Runner, DeSantis keeps escaping with his head high while his pursuers’ plans detonate in their faces. Example: The building collapse in Surfside, Fla., has cost at least 11 lives, likely many more. There must be some way to blame DeSantis, right? Hannah Dreier of The Washington Post claimed on Twitter that “FEMA was ready to deploy to the condo collapse almost immediately, and included the crisis in its daily briefing, but didn’t get permission from Gov. DeSantis to get on the ground for a full day.” In fact, the law required DeSantis to wait for an emergency declaration by the local mayor; once he had...
    Migrant workers were mostly used for the construction of stadiums or infrastructure. In addition to the stadiums, Qatar has built new roads and even a new city where the 2022 World Cup final will be played in Lusail. According to The Guardian, the death toll is well over 6,500, as only the five countries mentioned keep records. Qatar also employs a lot of people from the Philippines and Kenya. However, these countries do not keep good records on the number of deceased migrant workers. According to official figures from the Qatari government, most migrant workers died of natural causes. However, an autopsy is never performed after death to determine the exact cause. Many people working in Qatar had no health problems, but still died suddenly, possibly due to poor living and working conditions. In the summer of 2019, many workers died from the heat after being forced to work despite high temperatures. The Guardian also mentioned a worker who was electrocuted when his apartment, where many electrical wires hung, was flooded by heavy rains. The Qatari government calls the...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Democracy, as President Joe Biden declared in his inaugural speech, survived a barrage of misinformation and an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol to achieve a peaceful transfer of power. Yet the threats to democracy remain alarming in the view of most experts. And many major U.S. nonprofits and philanthropies, which provided funding to help safeguard the 2020 elections, plan to keep the money flowing. Philanthropic groups helped recruit roughly 500,000 potential poll workers last year, paid for election officials’ protective equipment and helped dispel disinformation about where and when people could vote. One nonprofit, the Center for Tech and Civic Life, an advocacy group, provided funding at 2,500 polling places for recruitment and training in the midst of the viral pandemic and the additional equipment and supplies that were needed to process record-high mail-in ballots. “It is impossible to overstate the significance of the philanthropic response to the difficulties of this election,” the Biden campaign said in an election postmortem. For all their success in helping ensure what Christopher Krebs, who tracked the voting as head...

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Making the playoffs for the first time in 13 years is just a start for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. “We’re 10-5 and I know that gets us a spot, but I think there’s still a big week ahead of us for preparation and improving as a team,” quarterback Tom Brady said. “We’re playing better, we’re playing more consistently, and it’s been great to see,” the six-time Super Bowl champion added. “There’s a lot of guys who have worked hard to get to this point.” Brady and coach Bruce Arians stress, though, the final week of the regular season is no time to rest on achieving a goal of ending the NFL’s second-longest playoff drought. The Bucs are in for the first time since 2007. A win over the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday would clinch the No. 5 seed in the NFC, setting up a first-round road playoff matchup against whoever winds up being the NFC East champion. And that team will have a losing record. “There’s going to be a bunch of teams that make it...

    By Scott DiSavino (Reuters) - The U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a motion to stay a permit for the $5.8-$6.0 billion Mountain Valley natural gas pipeline from West Virginia to Virginia. Analysts said that court decision on Wednesday - not to stay the pipeline's Biological Opinion - increases the odds Equitrans Midstream Corp can put the long-delayed project into service in the second half of 2021. The Biological Opinion from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service allows construction in areas inhabited by endangered and threatened species. Mountain Valley is one of several oil and gas pipelines delayed by regulatory and legal fights with environmental andlocal groups that found problems with permits issued bythe Trump administration. When Equitrans started construction in February 2018, it estimated Mountain Valley would cost about $3.5 billion and be completed by the end of 2018. The 303-mile (487.6 km) pipeline was designed to deliver 2 billion cubic feet per day of gas from the Marcellus and Utica shale in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia to consumers in the Mid Atlantic and Southeast.

    PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — A civic center in central Illinois is seeking about $4 million to keep afloat during the coronavirus pandemic that's caused the facility to lay off staff and lose money. The financial woes for the Peoria Civic Center began when the state ordered it shut in March due to the virus outbreak, which led to it absorbing a $250,000 loss and cutting staff from 350 to 16. “It’s no secret,” Civic Center Authority Board Chairman Matt Bartolo said. “We have a problem.” The solution comes with a $3.8 million price tag. “We don’t have it. And we’re going to need it in the next 60 days because we’ll be out of money in October," Civic Center General Manager Rik Edgar said. “If that happens, the Civic Center will close. Permanently.” Edgar is slated to lead a group this month that will ask the Peoria City Council for about $4 million, which would cover full pay for staff and other building expenses, the Journal Star reported. The civic center passed a budget which projected no revenue for the...
