    WASCO (AP) — A group of about 50 farm workers went on strike Thursday at a California pistachio farm demanding free face coverings, gloves and information from the farm’s owner after they said they learned from the media that dozens of their coworkers tested positive for the coronavirus, a union official said. Workers picketed in Wasco outside Primex Farms, which grows pistachio nuts, said Armando Elenes, a United Farm Workers official. Their demands also include better sanitation measures and more information from the company, which had not told them about the positive cases, he said. “They wanted to keep everything confidential, and at the same time, people getting contaminated,” Elenes said. Workers learned of the cases about two weeks ago when fellow workers started getting sick, but only heard that dozens had tested positive from a report on local television, Elenes said.

The farm about 150 miles (241 kilometers) north of...
    More than 75 percent of Americans are afraid of contracting the coronavirus, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll finds, as the number of new COVID-19 cases surge nationwide. In the poll, 76 percent of respondents said that they were concerned about falling ill to the virus, up from 69 percent in the same survey on June 12. Places that were once considered hot spots for the disease, such as New York and New Jersey, have seen their numbers decrease steadily without much of a rebound, but spikes have occurred in a number of states that pressed to reopen their economies earlier. California,Texas and Florida have all experienced record highs in daily coronavirus cases the past week. Specifically, Texas broke its for daily cases on Wednesday and then again on Thursday with nearly 6,000 new cases. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Wednesday announced that his state would pause some of its reopening measures as it grapples with a fast-rising number of hospitalizations, particularly in its numerous metropolitan areas. Abbott, however, said that businesses that have already been allowed to reopen can remain open.  Despite the stated fear of...
    Three people died Thursday after they were swept off the rocks into the ocean at a Malibu-area shore, authorities said.

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- COVID-19 has meant most of us can't spend time with our extended families. The Patel sisters came up with a way to cheer up their own grandparents during self-isolation."Even though we call them and text them every day it was clear they were still getting a bit lonely," said Shreya Patel. "And so one of my grandmother's friends actually wrote her a letter, and it just made her whole day and we were inspired by that. We thought how can we spread that same positivity, that same love to people in our community?"Shreya Patel and her younger sister, Saffron, spread those positive feelings through Letters Against Isolation, sending mail to seniors around the nation. The residents of a senior living community in Massachusetts were thrilled to participate and receive the letters, artwork and inspirational messages."Not only do they keep them, but they actually display them.

    They reveal that they sent 1,400 million in coronavirus checks to the dead More than 130 million payments were sent to the deceased They assure that it was an error due to the delays in the reports of deaths Dead coronavirus checks. Nearly 1.1 million payments of coronavirus aid in the amount of about $ 1.4 billion were sent to deceased people, a government watchdog said Thursday. More than 130 million of the so-called economic impact payments were sent to US taxpayers, as part of the $ 2.4 trillion assistance plan enacted in March to tackle the pandemic. The Government Accountability Office (GAO), the audit arm of Congress, indicated the number of payments to deceased taxpayers in its report on government programs. Although the government has asked survivors to return the money, it is unclear whether they are required to do so. In addition, it could be politically sensitive for the Treasury Department to vigorously try to recover the money, especially since some beneficiaries may have died of COVID-19 in the first months of this year.

    By David Kirton GUANGZHOU, China (Reuters) - Mohammed has spent several weeks sleeping in his cramped trading booth in one of Guangzhou's export centres after being kicked out of his apartment and forced into quarantine in April, but the Tanzanian trader says he is content to be in China. As Africans in the Chinese metropolis were targeted that month in a coronavirus clampdown that sparked a diplomatic backlash, Guangzhou's Xiaobei neighbourhood - known as "Little Africa" - went into lockdown. Like many in the community, including those who were evicted from their dwellings, Mohammed said he is trying to return to normal life now that the lockdown has eased. "It happened, it was bad, but I just want to move on," said Mohammed, who trades garments and shoes and like most people Reuters interviewed did not want to provide his full name given the sensitivity of the situation. Guangzhou is the hub for Africans engaged in trade in China, often small-scale business owners dealing in garments and other consumer goods, and is also a centre for students from the continent....

    Former Daily Show host Jon Stewart said protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd occurred because Americans, who were quarantining over the coronavirus pandemic, had the opportunity to “stop and smell the racism.” “In some respects, I wonder if the pandemic, because we all went into kind of a stasis, and the distractions of your daily life were removed, that it allowed the country a moment of clarity,” said Jon Stewart to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Wednesday night. “It’s almost like in this moment of more quiet reflection, America suddenly stopped and smelled the racism,” he added. “Do you know what I mean?

Mira Costa High School grads are under fire after photos of a large-scale graduation walk were posted to social media.

    SANTA ROSA (KPIX 5) — Officials in Santa Rosa on Tuesday prepared to move forward with the clearing out of multiple homeless encampments under Highway 101. It was supposed to happen weeks ago, but was delayed by coronavirus concerns. Nearly every US Highway 101 underpass in Santa Rosa has a sizable homeless camp underneath it. The camps have been there for months. Exposure to the coronavirus at the encampments further complicated plans to clear the homeless from under the freeway overpasses. “Two inmates from Sonoma County Jail were released, pending their test results. But instead of going to where they were asked to go to, they ended up under the freeway,” explained Director of Housing and Community Services David Gouin. Mike Salvato lives under College Street overpass. “The jail is right down the street, so a lot of people when they get out, they just walk down here.

They've witnessed and experienced a lot in their years, sometimes relating to being Black in America.The first time the two went to Las Vegas to see what it was all about, they couldn't stay at a hotel on The Strip because of the color of their skin.McCoo and Davis agreed to have a conversation with us about life then, life now and what they hope life will be in the future for all of us."Up, Up and Away," "Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In" and "Wedding Bell Blues" are some of their hits. They've had musical success together, separately and as part of The Fifth Dimension.

    Segway, which boldly claimed its two-wheeled personal transporter would revolutionize the way people get around, is ending production of its namesake vehicle. The Segway PT, popular with tourists and police officers but perhaps better known for its high-profile crashes, will be retired on July 15, the company said in a statement. “Within its first decade, the Segway PT became a staple in security and law enforcement, viewed as an effective and efficient personal vehicle,” said Judy Cai, Segway president, in a statement, noting that in the past decade it gained popularity with vacationers in major cities in North America, Europe, Asia, South America, and the Middle East. But the Segway, which carries a standing passenger on a wide platform, accounted for less than 1.5% of the company’s revenue last year. The company said 21 employees will be laid off, another 12 employees will stay on for two months to a year and five will remain at the Bedford, New Hampshire facility. “This decision was not made lightly, and while the current global pandemic did impact sales and production, it...
    By Mirna Alsharif | CNN An 8-year-old girl was found dead in a swimming pool along with her mother and grandfather in East Brunswick, New Jersey. The bodies were discovered Monday, but authorities don’t yet know the cause of death, the East Brunswick Police Department told CNN. The family had moved into the home just 20 days earlier, police said. “This is a devastating day for our entire community and we are working to determine exactly what happened,” said East Brunswick Police Chief Frank LoSacco. Monday afternoon, police received a call from a neighbor who heard screaming, police Lt. Frank Sutter told CNN. Officers arrived at the home and found an 8-year-old girl, a 32-year-old woman and a 62-year-old man unresponsive in a pool. The three were pronounced dead shortly afterward. There was another family member living in the house, but authorities didn’t say how that person was related to the victims. While the cause of death is still under investigation, an electrician was at the scene Monday, Sutter said. “That’s just to rule in or rule out the possibility...
    By Allen Kim and Elizabeth Joseph | CNN At least 17 Ohio high school students tested positive for coronavirus after a recent trip to Myrtle Beach, when they returned to a county that had previously reduced infection rates to zero. Robert Sproul, Deputy Health Commissioner of the Belmont County Health Department, tells CNN that nearly 100 students from the Ohio Valley traveled to the South Carolina town and returned the weekend of June 13. The trip was not a school sanctioned event. As of Tuesday afternoon, the Belmont Health Department confirmed the 17 positive cases as well as two contact positives. Sproul expects that number to increase as more people who went on the trip and the individuals they were exposed to get tested for the virus. “We’re worried our numbers are going to be creeping up,” he said, adding none of the students have been hospitalized and all are quarantining at home while health officials conduct contact tracing to identify where the students were and who they were with. Before this spike in cases, Belmont County had reduced...
    (CNN)The UK government says it aims to implement all the recommendations from a review into the Windrush scandal, which ensnared Caribbean migrants who helped rebuild postwar Britain but were caught up in recent immigration crackdowns.As the country faces up to accusations of systemic racism in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement, Home Secretary Priti Patel told the House of Commons there were "serious and significant lessons" to be learned by the Home Office, the government department which deals with immigration and security.Some members of the so-called Windrush generation -- who had been in the UK for decades but struggled to prove their status in recent years -- were refused medical care, denied housing and deported or threatened with deportation.Patel told lawmakers Tuesday that compensation payments had been too slow, and acknowledged the review had been "damning" about the conduct of her department. She accepted the conclusions of the review into the scandal "in full" and promised to return with an update on how they would be put into practice before the UK Parliament's seven-week break begins in late...
    Mexico City — Mexico's novel coronavirus cases mounted and added their youngest infections Monday, when triplets tested positive for the virus on the day they were born. Monica Rangel, the health secretary of the northern state of San Luis Potosi, said the triplets were born May 8 to a mother who was also positive but asymptomatic. Rangel said the triplets were not believed to be in danger. She said the case was being studied to see whether the triplets were infected before or after birth, but said it appeared improbable they could have been infected outside the womb so quickly. It is not the first time newborns have tested positive for the virus, but it is rare. Children statistically suffer far less symptoms from COVID-19 infection than adults, and the impact on human health appears to increase with age.  Dr. Tara Narula answers viewer questions about child safety as states reopen Nationwide, Mexico's confirmed coronavirus cases rose by 4,577 to 185,122, and the confirmed death toll rose by 759 to 22,584.

    (CNN)Eight corrections officers at the Ramsey County, Minnesota, jail where former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is being held say they were briefly barred from the floor where he was held the day he was booked into the jail because of the color of their skin, according to discrimination charges filed with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights. Judge sets Derek Chauvins bail at $1.25 million in George Floyds deathThe officers allege that on May 29, when Chauvin was charged with murder in the death of George Floyd, they were told to report to the third floor of the jail."When we arrived on the 3rd floor, we realized that the facility's employees of color were all on that floor, and that we had been segregated from the 5th floor," where Chauvin was to be held, one employee's charge of discrimination said.Steve Lydon, the corrections facility superintendent, soon reversed the decision, but all eight employees said they were "deeply humiliated" by "the segregation order," the charges of discrimination said.

    The three cops at the center of the NYPD milkshake “poisoning” scandal never even got sick, and there wasn’t the slightest whiff of criminality from the get-go — but that didn’t stop gung-ho brass from rolling out the crime scene tape and unions from dishing out empty conspiracy theories, The Post has learned. The fullest picture yet to emerge of the incident — which came amid fraught tensions between the police and public — is based on records and multiple interviews with police sources. The three officers were down from The Bronx, on protest duty in Lower Manhattan, on June 15 when they ordered the now-infamous mid-shift treats via a mobile app around 7:30 p.m., purchasing three shakes across two separate orders, sources said. Their drinks were waiting for them when they arrived at the Shake Shack on the second floor of 200 Broadway a few minutes later. A female officer picked up her strawberry shake from the front counter, and her two male colleagues grabbed their cherry and vanilla drinks from a side counter, sources said. Former NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — What was once a bustling entertainment district turned into a bloody spectacle over the weekend in south Minneapolis. Dustin Sanchez is a longtime resident of the Uptown neighborhood. “It was pop, pop, pop, pop, pop. And I was just kind of sitting there watching it, and I had two shots go past my head,” Sanchez said. He dodged the bullets, but 11 people did not, and a young father lost his life. Several businesses were also struck by bullets. “I came over to help, we were cleaning up projectiles, glass, cleaning up blood,” Sanchez said. “It’s just stupid, the violence. It’s not needed here anymore.” Sanchez, a father or four, says his family chose the area because of walkability and convenience. Lately, he says it’s been a hotbed of tension and frustration. “There is like zero authority here. We’ve called 911 a couple of times and they told us we were on our own because they don’t have people to come down and help,” Sanchez said. “There is no help with city officials or police right...

The killing took place in northern Alabama, but the two men were located in Oregon, Sheriff Ron Puckett said.

    By SARAH BLAKE MORGAN and SOPHIA TULP, Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Three people were killed and six others were wounded early Monday when multiple people fired into a crowd at an impromptu celebration in North Carolina, police said. Five others were hit by vehicles. The shooting happened at an impromptu block party in Charlotte that was a continuation of Juneteenth celebrations, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Deputy Chief Gerald Smith said at a media briefing Monday. About 400 people gathered on the north side of the city when someone in the crowd was struck during a hit-and-run accident, Smith said. Police responding to the scene heard shots being fired. Police believe more than one person fired weapons because videos recorded sounds from guns of different calibers. Authorities recovered around 100 casings from the scene. Maliyah Cook, a witness and relative of one of the victims, said the mood of the crowd leading up to the shooting had been calm. Suddenly, she heard gunshots. “I really feel like it was a good party. I don’t know what happened,” Cook told The Associated...
