    THE man who took hostages inside a Texas synagogue was reportedly in the country less than a month before he bought guns on the street and slept in homeless shelter. The hostage taker was identified by the FBI as British national Malik Faisal Akram, 44, who "allegedly purchased weapons on the street after he landed," President Joe Biden said on Sunday. 3The hostage standoff in a Texas synagogue ended with the hostages released safely and the hostage taker deadCredit: EPA 3The FBI identified the suspect as Malik Faisal Akram Malik AkramCredit: FBI Akram, who was killed as the FBI stormed the building, kept members of the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville captive for almost 12 hours during a tense standoff Saturday.

In the latest round of leaks concerning government officials partying it up in Downing Street while the rest of the nation was under draconian lockdown measures, Number 10 staff reportedly held two parties on April 16th of 2021. The parties, according to a report from the The Telegraph, are believed to have lasted until the early hours of the morning. The revelry came just one day before Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, was laid to rest after passing away at the age of 99. At the time of the funeral, England was under “step two” of the lockdown roadmap restrictions, preventing Britions from mixing indoors. Mourners of Prince Philip were even told not to leave flowers for the beloved prince over concerns of spreading the Chinese virus. As a result of the strict lockdown measures at the time, the Queen was forced to self-isolate and sit alone while...

    (CNN)On May 20, 2020, we registered my father's death from Covid-19. Remember that date. It turned out to be important.His name was Shaun Brady. He was a proud factory worker at the Heinz Kraft plant in Wigan, in the North West of England. He was brilliant, honest and kind. He didn't think much of himself, but we thought the world of him, and he thought the world of us. Dad was only 55. He loved cooking healthy food and went to the gym three or four times a week. But when the pandemic hit, he stuck to the lockdown rules. However, as a designated key worker, Dad had to keep attending his workplace in person. So even though his employer put in place measures to make work safer, Dad had to take public transport into work each day. And he got Covid-19.Dad fought the virus. But on April 2, 2020, his health deteriorated to the point he was taken to hospital by ambulance. A few days later he went into a coma. Gradually, the virus destroyed his lungs, then his...
    IF money were no object, we'd have a makeup bag and skincare routine packed full of high-end luxury products - but aside from the odd thing here and there, our collection is made up of more or less all high-street products.

    Protesters gathered in Fayetteville in North Carolina for a second night on Monday after a black man was allegedly shot dead by an off-duty cop.  Jason Walker, 37, was killed just after 2:15pm on Saturday outside his home on Bingham Drive.  The deputy involved in the shooting, identified as Lieutenant Jeffrey Hash, was taken into custody, but not arrested, and put on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. Hash phoned 911 after the shooting and told cops he fired at Walker after he jumped on his truck, but protesters have challenged his version of events.  Demonstrators outside Fayetteville's Transit Authority last night chanted 'What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now' while another group of protesters held signs outside the State Capitol in Raleigh.   Meanwhile the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) began an 'initial assessment' of the case, reviewing 'evidence, statements and body-worn camera' to determine whether there were potential civil rights violations. Fayetteville Police Chief Gina Hawkins said on Monday that a preliminary investigation had found that Walker 'ran into traffic and jumped on a moving vehicle' before...
    An Italian mafia fugitive has been caught after 20 years on the run after detectives spotted him on Google Maps in Spain. Gioacchino Gammino, one of Italy's most wanted mobsters who has been convicted of murder, fled from a prison in Rome in 2002 and was living under the radar in Galapagar, a town north of Madrid. The 60-year-old had changed his name, worked as a chef and opened a fruit and vegetable shop.

    Vice President Kamala Harris has tapped Wall Street and Silicon Valley executives for advice and ideas on tackling her difficult policy portfolio, it emerged Wednesday, as she grapples with migration and other crises. Harris has faced intense criticism since being put in charge of addressing the root causes behind a surge in migration from Central America. Now she is looking to business brains to help her navigate the crisis.  They include Microsoft President Brad Smith, Cisco Systems Chief Executive Chuck Robbins and Citigroup C.E.O. Jane Fraser, according to Bloomberg News.  'The vice president has worked closely with business leaders across a range of issues - and throughout her career she has viewed the business community as an important partner when it comes to getting things done, with speed and impact in mind,' said Harris economic adviser Mike Pyle in a statement.  The effort is not without risk. Progressives, already suspicious of Harris's record as a prosecutor in California, will worry that she is cozying up to corporate America, giving big business a chance to push its own agenda.

    BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — The little red wagon was strewn upside down on a heap of rubble — a pile of boards and bricks, a mangled blue bicycle, a baby doll. Behind it, there was little more than a hole in the ground where a house had stood. Across the street, the tidy homes on this cul-de-sac were reduced to mounds of lumber. Clothes hung from the branches of snapped trees. The walls of one house were gone, and the only thing left standing inside was a white Christmas tree.

    SOME may be wondering why it’s illegal - or even dangerous - to park your car when it’s facing the wrong way in a street. A reason why you might park a car the wrong way is because you didn’t realize you drove down a one-way street initially. 1One area in the country could give you a $300 ticket for parking on the wrong side Another reason could be out of pure laziness and not wanting to have to drive around your block so your car is facing the correct way at all times. Keep in mind that typically the wrong side of the road is the left side, at least in the US. One Reddit user shared an inconvenient story involving rage from his neighbor about this. “Basically, there’s a curb in front of my house between two garages (ie not a parallel parking situation) in which I’ll occasionally park facing the wrong way if I’m tired and don’t want to go around the block,” he said.  “My neighbor threw a fit and threatened to call the cops but I don’t...
    This is the shocking moment a male straphanger slapped a woman in the face on a New York City subway train. The incident occurred on the Brooklyn-bound R Train at 12.10am on Friday morning, near Hoyt-Schermerhorn Street Station in downtown Brooklyn.   In the cellphone footage, a 34-year-old female victim can initially be seen telling the male suspect to stop 'filming every woman in the car,' as she was simultaneously being recorded by a bystander.  The male suspect responds, repeating to her: 'I ain't filming you, I ain't filming you,' before telling her: 'You know what? You're going to get yourself in trouble 'cause I'm not playin' with you.' A man and a 34-year-old woman got into a verbal altercation after she accused him of filming every woman in the subway car going to downtown Brooklyn.

    CHICAGO (CBS) – Clark street is at a crossroads. The city plans to study the North Side street to see how it can boost new development.

    In this article VRTX DDOG MCHP VIDEO2:4202:42Stocks sell off again, but it could mean opportunity for these four namesTrading NationStocks are coming off a volatile week on Wall Street. The S&P 500 closed Friday with a weekly loss of more than 1%, its second down week in a row, as inflation worries, a weaker-than-expected jobs report, fears of a Federal Reserve tapering sooner than expected and the arrival of the omicron variant in the U.S. keeping investors on their toes. But one's loss is another's gain to some market watchers. CNBC's "Trading Nation" asked two traders which buy-the-dip stocks they would consider in this uncertain backdrop. Eva Ados, chief investment strategist at ERShares, highlighted two growth stocks that had come under pressure during the sell-off — cloud and software-as-a-service company Datadog and B2B database manager ZoomInfo. "We like Datadog because it's the leading [artificial intelligence for IT operations] platform.

    Cannabis shops across the San Francisco Bay Area have been thrown into dire straits as gangs of thieves broke into more than 15 shops throughout November during the series of 'smash-and-grab' robberies plaguing California.  Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong told reporters that 'hundreds' of vehicles targeted marijuana stores in Oakland last month, firing 175 shots and stealing about $5 million worth of products.  Alphonso 'Tucky' Blunt, owner of Blunts and Moore, told MJBizDaily that his store lost about $25,000 during a November 22 raid, where more than a dozen burglars ransacked the store.  'I know 25 or so businesses that got hit … and out of all those, the percentage I know that told me that they may not be able to reopen is about 50 percent. That's scary, Blunt said.  'I was safer, and had more money, (selling) on the street, illegally.'

    A statewide zero cash bail policy for misdemeanors and lower-level felonies was implemented last year as part of a supposed effort to reduce overcrowding in jails amid the coronavirus pandemic, but the policy ended in June. A similar policy, however, was continued in Los Angeles County after Gascón was sworn in. On Twitter, the district attorney called the money bail system "unsafe" and "unjust" and vowed to end it altogether. He later told U.S. News and World Report that "eliminating money bail is one of the moral imperatives of our generation." Amid the news of the 14 released looting suspects, Democratic Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti joined Moore calling for the policy to be terminated. "We need the help of our criminal justice system, of our judges, of our jailers," Garcetti said. "We have opened up a lot of the city because we're in a better place with COVID. We should be able to also open up our jails, and we should be able to have judges that put people behind those bars."
    Police in Los Angeles have announced 14 arrests in connection with 11 recent smash-and-grab robberies at stores where nearly $340,000 worth of merchandise was stolen, but all the suspects have been released. Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore said that most of the accused robbers suspected of ransacking businesses between November 18 and 28 bailed out or met no-bail criteria, and one is a juvenile. At a joint news conference on Thursday announcing the arrests, both Moore and Mayor Eric Garcetti called for an end to a no-bail policy for some defendants aimed at reducing overcrowding at Los Angeles County jails during the coronavirus pandemic. Garcetti said with the pandemic easing, it's time to make room again in lockups for criminals who commit violent acts and put store employees in danger.  LAPD's top cop said at least $338,000 in goods were stolen over ten days from stores and malls across the city that incurred $40,000 in property damage. Investigators are searching for multiple outstanding suspects, he said. The brazen heists were part of a rash of organized retail crime in...

"Didi's repatriation to [Hong Kong] is a significantly worrying indicator for the larger US-Sino economic relationship," Brock Silvers, chief investment officer at Kaiyuan Capital in Hong Kong, told me. "Beijing essentially forced Didi's hand."Shortly after its $4.4 billion initial public offering in the United States in late June, Chinese regulators banned Didi from app stores in China, saying it broke data privacy laws and posed cybersecurity risks.

    Elizabeth Holmes tried to appeal to Rupert Murdoch to ask him to stop the Wall Street Journal from publishing its expose revealing Theranos' alleged fraud, prosecutors told the court on Tuesday. Her trial also heard how the former CEO's lavish lifestyle and hunger for fame fueled the fraud. The 37-year-old's reputation as a high flying successful tech CEO began to unravel, as did her luxury lifestyle of private jets, high end hotels and a team of assistants to serve her every whim, after the WSJ began investigating Theranos in 2015. Seemingly panicked, Holmes turned directly to newspaper's owner Murdoch. In a 2015 email, she appeals to the News Corp's chairman to ask him to squash the articles suggesting Theranos' devices were flawed and inaccurate, and reminding him that he had recently invested $125 million in her company.   Court sketch of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes during cross examination on Tuesday  Prosecutors also argued that the hunger for fame and fortune were behind Holmes' decision to commit fraud Holmes' email included an attachment of a briefing document sent by her attorney David Boies...

    What did we learn from the BBC's heavily promoted documentary The Princes and the Press? Well for a start we discovered a lot more about the presenter - BBC Media Editor Amol Rajan - than the Royals. Mr Rajan wears jewellery, seems slightly chippy and extremely sure of himself. A far cry from Jenny Bond, Nicholas Witchell, and the school of fawning obeisance. By choosing this self-confessed republican to front a prime-time programme about the Royals, the BBC seems to have decided it's time to end their traditional coverage which often seemed to be conducted from the bended knee position. The rise of Amol Rajan at the BBC in just five years has been phenomenal.  Appointed editor of the Independent newspaper at just 29, he'd previously worked as a researcher and assistant presenter on Channel 5's The Wright Stuff. Rajan is confident, brainy, and sure of his own worth. Nothing wrong in that, but he's rubbed a few (less talented) folk up the wrong way in his quest for fame and success. One BBC insider describes his 'magnificent vanity' coupled...

    Just two days before Thanksgiving, students in Waukesha, Wisconsin, who would normally be basking in the warmth of the upcoming holidays are instead reliving the carnage they saw Sunday as a man mowed down dozens of people in an annual Christmas parade—something one witness described as “very similar” to a war zone. “It was the most horrific experience of my life, actually,” one witness said of the gut-wrenching moment she saw a vehicle heading toward where her younger sister was marching in the parade. “All of a sudden, out of nowhere, comes the SUV flying down,” Keli Kowalewski recalled to WISN 12 News. Kowalewski’s sister, who was not physically harmed, was marching with the Catholic Memorial Poms dance team when a suspect identified by police as Darrell Brooks allegedly deliberately mowed down parade-goers, killing at least five and injuring 48. Student performers on the dance team and in the Waukesha South High School marching band were front and center for the tragedy. “The car was like this close to us and sped right past us to my left,” Isabella Maher,...

    Share this: A grant of $15 million to make the Broadway Junction subway station in East New York disabled-accessible is part of a $28.9 million federal transportation package for the New York metro area. It was announced on Friday in Washington, D.C. The Broadway Junction-Broadway East New York complex serves five subway lines — the A Eighth Avenue express, the C Eighth Avenue local, the L 14th Street-Canarsie line, the J Broadway-Nassau Street local and the Z Broadway-Nassau Street express. More than 100,000 riders pass through this station daily. Users, according to published reports, include not only local people commuting to their jobs, but Downtown Brooklyn residents and Manhattanites changing trains to get to JFK Airport.
    A man was hospitalized after he was the victim of a brutal subway slashing across his face as crime continues to be a problem in New York City amid an explosion in transit crime in the city in recent weeks.  The news comes as attacks on the subway remain prevalent in the city and NYPD officer morale is at a low point.   The victim was headed southbound on the A train in Greenwich Village. The train was stopped at the West 4th Street - Washington Square Station in Manhattan. It's unclear what led to the incident but the man was slashed across the face. A suspect has not yet been identified.  No word Saturday evening on the man's condition, police said they're looking for the attacker.  According to the NYPD's latest monthly numbers, overall crime was up 11.2 percent last month compared with October 2020. Robbery was up by 15.8 percent and felony assault rose by 13.8 percent.  Transit crimes have skyrocketed as ridership struggles to return to pre-pandemic levels. From the week of November 8 to November 14, transit...
    Fox News contributor and former homicide detective Ted Williams went off Wednesday reacting to testimony from the man who chased and killed Ahmaud Arbery. Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and Roddie Bryan are facing a number of serious charges, including felony murder and aggravated assault, over the horrific killing in February 2020, when the McMichaels chased Arbery — allegedly believing he was a burglar — and Travis McMichael fatally shot him. Bryan followed and recorded them. McMichael took the stand Wednesday and testified he acted in self-defense. Williams told Neil Cavuto it’s a ridiculous claim to make: This was a young man running through a neighborhood, had looked in to a vacant house on several occasions. At no time had they been able to show that this young man stole or took anything. He’s running through the neighborhood. All of a sudden, there’s a truck with two men in it chasing after him. They catch up with him. They start questioning him. He moves away. He doesn’t even talk to them. He runs away from them. They go after him. They...

    New York (CNN Business)Less than a month into her role as the chief executive of Citigroup, Jane Fraser made a decision that shook Wall Street. It was late March, and signs of burnout were everywhere after more than a year of remote work in the pandemic. Deal volume was at record highs and showed no signs of letting up. Over at investment banking rival Goldman Sachs, young analysts made headlines with workplace horror stories that went beyond the typical long hours and cutthroat competition that Wall Street's known for. They were falling apart, mentally and emotionally. Fraser saw an opportunity. And the memo she sent to Citi's 210,000 global staff would set the tone for how she would try to overhaul Citigroup — long languishing in third place and mired in bad press."The blurring of lines between home and work and the relentlessness of the pandemic workday have taken a toll on our well-being," she wrote. "It's simply not sustainable." Jane Fraser, pictured at the Milken Institute Global Conference in California in 2019, inherited a difficult job when she took...
    Saturday Night Live's cold open featured a sendup of Texas Senator Ted Cruz's ongoing feud with Sesame Street that included parodies of Marjorie Taylor Greene and Joe Rogan, who fed Big Bird horse de-wormer.  Cruz, played by cast member Aidy Bryant, decides to put together his own version of the show, called Cruz Street.  'I'm Texas Senator and last one invited to Thanksgiving, Ted Cruz,' Bryant's Cruz said. 'For 50 years I stood by as Sesame Street taught our children dangerous ideas like numbers and kindness.' 'But when Big Bird told children to get vaccinated against a deadly disease, I said enough! And I created my own Sesame Street called Cruz Street. It's a gated community where kids are safe from the woke government.'  Cruz's first guest is Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, played by an AR-15-toting Cecily Strong.  'Today's episode is brought to you by Q,' said Strong's Greene.

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A theatrical production that originated before the pandemic is striking a chord even more now. “I was one of the founding members of Sacramento Contemporary Dance theatre about seven years ago,” said Aly Homen. READ MORE: Poll: Are You Getting The COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shot?Homen takes to the stage to tell her story. Several years, ago she stepped away from dancing to work in restaurants. “Which was amazing and grueling at the same time,” Homen said. “And I came back and I saw the first production of ‘Behind the Apron,’ and I kid you not, I was crying before the first song ended.” She is now part of the production, which first opened in 2019 in Rancho Cordova. It was a collaboration between Bobbin Mulvaney, of Mulvaney’s restaurant, and Jacob Gutierrez-Montoya. The idea was to raise awareness about mental health in the restaurant industry. “So I sat in the corner bar at Mulvaney’s and just watched the whole restaurant move and I developed this really awesome fluidity of what I saw … the stream of consciousness of the...
    Q: My friend shared articles you’ve written about this issue after I had a serious accident Friday when I tripped on pedestrian bumper buttons at a crosswalk in front of the Chase Center in San Francisco. I was there for the James Taylor concert. When I tripped, I was propelled forward, hit my head on a utility pole, and was bleeding. I was attended to by Chase medical staff before going to the ER for a CT scan. There was another woman who fell and had head injuries and bleeding prior to my accident. While I was being cared for, another woman fell and suffered trauma to her shoulder. My friend said his client slipped on them and broke her nose. His chiropractor said he’s getting a lot of patients from people slipping on them. And the city continues to install those slippery buggers. Carol Carlson Vallejo A: Carol plans to file a claim with the city as soon as she feels better, adding, “I’m still feeling a bit in a brain fog.” Q: I was walking into a...
    New York (CNN Business)\It's official: The Federal Reserve is winding down its aggressive pandemic-era stimulus measures, a process Wall Street nerds call "tapering." But what, exactly, does that mean? The short answer: Money has essentially been free for the past year and a half, thanks to the Fed's double-barrel shotgun approach to economic stimulus — interest rates near zero and a massive investment in bonds that keeps yields near rock-bottom.

    (CNN)On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal opinion's section posted a lengthy letter from Donald Trump in which the former president repeatedly pushed conspiracy theories about the 2020 election in Pennsylvania."Well actually, the election was rigged, which you, unfortunately, still haven't figured out," Trump wrote at the top of his op-ed, insisting -- contra facts -- that he actually won the state of Pennsylvania.Before we go any further, let's revisit what happened in Pennsylvania in 2020.Joe Biden won 3,461,221 to Trump's 3,379,055, according to the Almanac of American Politics. That's a margin of 82,166 votes.Which is close! Read MoreAnd the closeness of that result led Trump to make several attempts in the wake of the election to have courts step in. A federal judge dismissed Trump's lawsuit in November 2020, writing: "One might expect that when seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption. That has not happened." Around that same time, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rejected an attempt by Trump's campaign to stop the counting of some...
