    It is not unusual during a road trip to see Chicago Cubs first base coach Mike Napoli at a table in the visitors clubhouse playing cribbage with a player. Veteran left-hander Wade Miley has been one of his toughest opponents while infielders Nico Hoerner and Nick Madrigal have started learning to play. Napoli views card games as important relationship builders between players and even coaches. It goes back to his playing career, recalling how he would square off against manager Terry Francona during Napoli’s one season in Cleveland. Those settings allow for personal connections and bonding where the focus isn’t about baseball. “Being able to go back and forth between player-coach-type personality stuff, it’s just so valuable,” manager David Ross said of Napoli to the Tribune. “It really is.” Napoli, 40, always figured he would get into coaching once his playing career ended. But he thought he’d take more time off after he retired in 2018 because of a torn ACL suffered in Triple A. He quickly realized, however, he didn’t know how to fill so much free time. So...
    DENVER (CBS4) – As Denver is in the process of redistricting, many resident could be impacted by the changed maps. Some say they’re worried about the potential outcome. “The demographics are quickly changing,” said Alfonso Espino, a community organizer with the Globeville Elyria Swansea Coalition. “The developments are coming faster and thicker than ever, but the political power remains the same. Earlier this week Denver city council voted to move forward with two potential re-districting maps of the city. The maps sponsored by council are map D and map E. The maps, which are based off of recent U.S. Census data, are redrawn every 10 years and they help shape the political landscape in the city, giving every person a say in electing their local representatives. (credit: CBS) Some say it’s not so much about the maps, it’s about having proper representation. “We are losing people of color from the city every day. The city is rapidly one of the highest gentrifying cities in the country,” said Brendan Greene, the Executive Director of the East Colfax Community Collective. “And we...
    U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Congressional Democrats discuss the 'Build Back Better Act' and climate investments during a news conference at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, November 17, 2021.Elizabeth Frantz | Reuters Republicans may help Democrats lift the debt ceiling after all — in their own way. GOP congressional leaders have said for months that they will not vote with Democrats to raise the debt limit and snuff out the threat of a first-ever U.S. default. Top lawmakers may have found a new way for Democrats to hike the borrowing cap before Dec. 15, the estimated date when the Treasury will no longer be able to pay its bills. The process would be complicated and carry risks. If the House and Senate can pull it off, Washington would quash the risk of a default that could wreak havoc on the global economy and stock markets. The strategy would tie the effort to raise the debt limit to a bill designed to prevent automatic Medicare spending cuts set to take place at the...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Pro Football Hall of Fame has entered the Boston sports discussion this week. With Vince Wilfork and Richard Seymour making the list of 26 modern-era semifinalists, and with Rodney Harrison not making that list, opinions have been plentiful regarding the worthiness of the three former Patriots. READ MORE: It's An Interesting Time To Revisit Saints' Efforts To Trade Up To Draft Mac JonesNaturally, given his profound knowledge and appreciation for the history of the NFL, as well as his personal experience coaching those players, Bill Belichick was asked to chime in on the matter during his media availability on Friday morning. Specifically, the coach was asked about Seymour and Wilfork, and whether players at positions where statistics aren’t readily available to show their impact deserve more recognition. Before answering that question specifically, Belichick expressed his issue with Hall of Fame debates and discussions. “As I’ve said before, the Hall of Fame is out of my control. And since there’s no criteria for the Hall of Fame, it’s really hard to even have a conversation...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol “deferred” its requests for several dozen pages of Trump administration records at the White House’s urging, but President Joe Biden again rejected the former president’s invocation of executive privilege on hundreds of additional pages. In a letter to the National Archives and Records Administration, Biden counsel Dana Remus repeated that Biden has “determined that an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interests of the United States, and therefore is not justified” for two tranches of documents sent to the White House for review last month. Obtained Monday by The Associated Press, the letter reveals that the committee “deferred” its request for nearly 50 pages of documents as a result of an “accommodation” process with the Biden White House. That process allows the White House to protect some records that may be privileged, without formally blocking their release. The fate of the documents approved for release by the White House will now be decided by the courts. Former President Donald Trump filed suit...
    (CNN)The Biden administration is beginning the clemency process for certain inmates released to home confinement due to the coronavirus pandemic, the White House announced Monday. The process will start with a review of nonviolent drug offenders on CARES Act home confinement with four years or less to serve, White House spokesperson Andrew Bates said in a statement. A provision of that federal stimulus law signed by President Donald Trump last year expanded the group of inmates eligible for early release."The Biden-Harris Administration is working hard every single day to reform our justice system in order to strengthen families, boost our economy, and give Americans a chance at a better future. As part of this, President Biden is deeply committed to reducing incarceration and helping people successfully reenter society," Bates said."As he has said, too many Americans are incarcerated -- and too many of those incarcerated are Black and Brown. That is why the President is exploring the use of his clemency power for individuals on CARES Act home confinement. The Administration will start the clemency process with a review of...
    NORTH CENTER — Hundreds of people have been exposed to coronavirus at Chicago’s biggest public high school after two people tested positive, and parents say they’re worried about more kids getting sick and how long it took the district to inform families.  The two people tested positive within the first few days of school, district data shows, and 408 people were identified as having prolonged contact with those people while they were contagious. Lane Tech, 2501 W. Addison St., serves 4,391 students, according to district data. The district requires people who have been exposed to quarantine for two weeks if they are unvaccinated. A district spokeswoman said 98 people were out late last week after accounting for vaccinated people. Some parents said they were concerned they weren’t notified about the COVID cases and potential exposure for several days. Lane parents received an email from the school Sept. 7 explaining the district’s COVID-19 protocols and asking them to upload their children’s proof of vaccination if they hadn’t already. That email also said students required to quarantine will be contacted directly on how to...
    Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas promised to "swiftly and safely" resettle thousands of Afghan allies into the United States and confirmed that DHS has denied evacuees from entering the U.S. due to "derogatory" information obtained during the vetting process.  Mayorkas was joined by Robert J. Fenton Jr., senior response official of the Unified Coordination Group, during a press conference Friday to discuss Operation Allies Welcome – created to help thousands of vulnerable Afghan evacuees from Afghanistan assimilate into the United States. The DHS secretary told reporters that roughly over 40,000 American citizens and Afghan partners have arrived into the U.S. from Afghanistan and are undergoing an initial processing at predesignated U.S. military bases prior to being resettled into communities. He touted the robust biometric screening and vetting process in place, in both the U.S. and transit countries, in order to make sure every individual entering the country is properly screened.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection has flagged some incoming Afghan evacuees as a "concern" as part of the vetting and screening process at military bases around the world.  Representatives from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), FBI and State Department spoke on a call Friday about the status of vetting and relocation efforts for Afghan citizens fleeing the country after the Taliban assumed control of Kabul. The Biden administration has touted how thorough the process is, but until yesterday had remained closed-lipped about the number of incoming evacuees the process has flagged.  "It’s exactly why CBP conducted careful and thorough vetting," Keri Brady, assistant director at CBP’s National Targeting Center, said during a call in a transcript obtained by ABC News.  AFGHAN ACTIVIST FATIMA GAILANI BLASTS BIDEN AS ‘RECKLESS,’ CALLS GHANI ‘NATIONAL TRAITOR’ The call focused on the vetting process as well as what happens with the evacuees after admission to the United States. The agencies also detailed different threat scenarios that authorities are tracking domestically and abroad.  DHS said it is tracking people abroad who could use the relocation...
    A Guatemalan asylum-seeker at Casa del Refugiado in El Paso, 2019 The Biden administration has announced a new policy that would allow certain asylum-seekers to have their cases handled by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) asylum officers instead of immigration judges. Advocates said the proposed rule, published by the administration on Wednesday, could ease the massive immigration court backlog, which had more than 1.3 million cases as of June. “By resolving more cases initially at the asylum office, fewer cases will need to be referred into the immigration courts, contributing to system efficiencies and helping to reduce the immigration court backlog,” Human Rights First said. CBS News reports that under the proposed rule, “USCIS officers would be permitted to grant eligible migrant adults and families asylum, which would allow them to stay in the U.S. permanently. If asylum is denied, migrants could ask an immigration judge to reconsider the case. If that is unsuccessful or no appeal is filed, migrants could be swiftly deported.”  Currently, “any person who asks for asylum at the border is given a ‘credible fear’ interview by an Asylum Officer,”...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will vacate office following a nation-gripping sexual harassment scandal, but despite his early resignation, he could still face impeachment, which might result in him being unable to run for governor again. The New York Assembly Judiciary Committee is wrapping up a months-long "impeachment investigation" into the allegations of sexual harassment levied at Cuomo, and some Democratic lawmakers want to continue the process. State Sen. Julia Salazar said just hours after he announced he would be stepping down she supported pursuing impeachment against the governor.   "We have a responsibility to go through the full impeachment process," Salazar wrote on Twitter. "Anything less would fail to fully hold the governor accountable, and to prevent his behavior from being repeated in the future." State Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou replied, "We must" to a tweet that called for Cuomo’s impeachment.  State Sen. Alessandra Biaggi has echoed the calls for impeachment for months and told nonprofit news outlet The 19th  on Wednesday, "I feel incredibly responsible to follow through on accountability, because if I don’t, and if we don’t, effectively what we...
    Washington (CNN)The Biden administration is planning to relocate a group of Afghans who have applied for special immigrant visas (SIV) to Fort Lee, a US army post in Virginia as early as this week, according to two sources familiar with the matter.Members of Congress have been notified of this plan, according to sources familiar with the conversations.This will be the first group of SIV applicants to be relocated from Afghanistan, as part of the Biden administration's effort to relocate thousands of Afghan interpreters and translators who worked for the United States throughout its nearly two-decade military campaign in Afghanistan, and now have reason to fear their safety. The Biden administration is calling this effort "Operation Allies Refuge."It is unclear exactly how many Afghans will be flow into Fort Lee but these Afghans are far along in the extensive vetting process they have to go through in order to get visa approval, sources said. "There are 2,500 SIV applicants and their family members who have been approved through the security vetting process," a State Department spokesperson told CNN last Friday, and...
    President Joe Biden said Thursday that the thousands of Afghans who aided America and their families would have the option to relocate to facilities outside the continental United States and in third countries to await special U.S. visas. Without explicitly saying exactly where the Afghan evacuees will go, Biden declared during a press briefing: The operation [to evacuate thousands of Afghans and their families before the American military withdrawal concludes at the end of August to wait for their visas outside Afghanistan] has identified U.S. facilities outside the continental United States, as well as in third countries to host our Afghan allies. He added that starting this month, his administration will begin relocation flights for Afghans waiting for U.S. Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs), available to individuals who fear Taliban reprisals for aiding the U.S. war effort and their families who choose to leave. That suggests that some of the individuals waiting for the U.S. to process their SIVs may end up in American territories such as the Pacific island of Guam, located outside the continental United States. Biden did not explicitly...
    Getty Drew and Jonathan Scott pose together at the 2018 Creative Arts Emmys. Jonathan and Drew Scott host the hit HGTV show “Celebrity IOU.” On the series, the “Property Brothers” stars help celebrities remodel the homes of their loved ones. During a recent interview on the “HGTV Obsessed” podcast, Jonathan and Drew revealed that there have been a few Hollywood stars who have not enjoyed some aspects of home renovation.  Jonathan referenced that his girlfriend of nearly two years, Zooey Deschanel was the guest star on season 2, episode 1. He revealed that she did not appreciate how loud it was to remodel her friend Sarah’s house.  “[Zooey] did it because it was for her friend Sarah but she’s like, ‘I hate it, I hate the noise,’” recalled the television personality.  Jonathan went on to say that Gwyneth Paltrow and comedian Ali Wong had similar issues with the demolition process while filming episodes for season 2.  “Both Ali Wong and Gwyneth Paltrow said they do not like the noise, they do not like the dirtiness but they’ll do...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A dangerous stretch of Sunset Park is about to undergo a safety transformation. But the community it’s meant to protect is crying foul – claiming they’ve been shut out of the entire process. READ MORE: NYC Mayoral Candidates Make Last-Minute Push For Votes Ahead Of Tuesdays Primary As CBS2’s Christina Fan reports, there’s no question that Seventh and Eighth Avenue in Brooklyn’s Chinatown are traffic hazards. Trucks are chronically double parked. The sidewalks are too narrow. But families say even more problematic is the DOT’s lack of transparency in redesigning it. “Please come back and give us a better plan, not just throw us a piece of paper, this is what we do,” said business owner Kenny Guan. Seventh and Eight Avenue are currently two-way streets. Under the proposal, Seventh between 39th and 65th Street will convert to one-way northbound, while 8th will convert to one-way southbound. Protected bikes lanes and more sidewalk space will also be added. But residents are not happy nearly 200 parking spaces will be eliminated, and that some sections will be cut down to just a lane of...
    WASHINGTON - The State Department and Department of Homeland Security announced this week that they are expanding eligibility for legal migration to the U.S. for some minors from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. The Central American Minors (CAM) program allows immigrant parents or U.S.-based guardians with legal status in the country to petition for their children's resettlement in the U.S. The Biden administration restarted the program in March after a four-year halt. Biden Administration Announces Plan to Admit More Central American Minors White House official says expansion of Central American Minors program could make up to 100,000 eligible to come to US CAM’s first phase was centered on working through thousands of applications and cases that had been suspended when the Trump administration ended the program in 2017. The second phase will allow new petitions to be filed. How does the program work? Through sponsorship by a parent or guardian already residing legally in the U.S., some minors can be authorized to travel to the country. The program, which continues America’s decades-old commitment to family reunification as an...

    CHELSEA will allow fans into board meetings from July 1 as they look to build bridges with supporters following the European Super League backlash. Furious Blues fans gathered en masse outside Stamford Bridge prior to their clash against Brighton two weeks ago in protest against the hated competition. 2Chelsea fans furiously protested against the European Super League outside Stamford BridgeCredit: Reuters The West London outfit pulled out within 48 hours of the launch, with the club apologising for the farce before promising to engage with fans better in the future.

    Part of the process of certifying unemployment benefits includes Illinois employers appealing claims, but more than a year into the pandemic, one employer says that’s not happening. With more open and warmer months ahead, businesses are having problems finding employees to come back to work. Some blame generous unemployment benefits. More than 15,000 Illinoisans filed for additional unemployment benefits last week. That’s nearly 1,000 more than filed for the expanded traditional benefits than the week before. More than 2,200 independent contractors also applied for benefits, a decrease of around 200 from the week before. In total, the state has nearly 430,000 people getting benefits, more than 40,000 than the week before. State Rep. Mike Murphy, R-Springfield, said every restaurant owner he talks to says there’s an employee shortage. At the beginning of the pandemic, and following government orders prohibiting indoor dining and other services, Karen Conn with Conn’s Hospitality Groups said she had to lay off more than 75 people from all of their properties. Since then, they’ve brought back around half. Jay...
