    VIDEO4:1104:11FTC Chair Lina Khan answers question on antitrust regulation and data privacyTechCheck The Federal Trade Commission won't back down in the face of intimidation from better-resourced opponents, said Chair Lina Khan in an exclusive interview with CNBC Wednesday, her first on-camera sit-down. Khan said it takes "courage" to take on companies with immense power, especially in the face of the FTC's own resource challenges that force it to narrow down its priorities farther than its leaders would like. "We're really showing these companies, but also showing the country, that enforcers are not going to back down because of these companies flexing some muscle or kind of trying to intimidate us," Khan told CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin and Kara Swisher, host of The New York Times' "Sway" podcast. "I think those are the types of lessons that we're trying to learn looking back over the last decade." Khan personally has faced pushback from Amazon and Facebook in particular, which petitioned for her recusal from antitrust matters involving their businesses. Both companies argued that Khan's past statements and work for the Open...
    MILLIONS of families across the country are hoping that child tax credit payments resume next month. One provision in the American Rescue Act, signed into law by President Joe Biden last year, boosted the child tax credit payments to $3,600 from $2,000. 1Congress will need to take action to expand the $3,600 child tax credit As a result, eligible American families received monthly payments of up to $300 per child from July to December. However, the expanded child tax credit expired at the end of 2021, as Congress failed to act. Going forward, there are a few scenarios that could happen with the child tax credits in the coming months. Double payments in February Last month, White House secretary Jen Psaki brought up a scenario where there could be double child tax credit payments in February, should Congress pass a bill. She said: "If we get it done in January, we've talked to Treasury officials and others about doing double payments in February as an option.” But a bill passage doesn't appear to be close, based on where things stand currently.

    ARSENAL are set to be boosted by the early return of Thomas Partey from the Africa Cup of Nations. The midfielder, 28, played in all three of Ghana's group matches as they were eliminated from the tournament. 1Thomas Partey will return to Arsenal after playing in all three of Ghana's group stage gamesCredit: AFP He is now set to travel back to England and could play a part in the Gunners' home match against Burnley. That could mean Partey would not have missed a single Premier League game, with Arsenal's fixture against Tottenham last Sunday postponed. Ghana were defeated 3-2 by Comores in a shock result on Tuesday. That sealed Ghana's elimination with Morocco and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's Gabon progressing instead. Elsewhere, Senegal's qualification from Group B will hinder Arsenal rivals Chelsea and Liverpool as Edouard Mendy and Sadio Mane are set to extend their stay in Africa.

    One of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' Democratic rivals compared the Republican to Hitler 'in a lot of ways.'  Florida's Agricultural Commissioner Nikki Fried, who is trying to oust DeSantis in this year's gubernatorial race, was asked by WJCT reporter Melissa Ross for NPR's The Florida Roundup Podcast on Friday about previously calling DeSantis an 'authoritarian dictator.'  'He is doing everything possible to take power away from local governments, taking away people's abilities to protest, making it harder to vote, talking about, you know, banning books,' Fried said. 'That’s what dictators do.'  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (left) was compared to Hitler 'in a lot of ways' by Agriculture Commissioner and Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Nikki Fried (right)  'Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, he is trying to govern over the people, and, you know, that, I’m sorry, I’m a student of history, too. I saw the rise of Hitler,' Fried continued.  Ross stopped Fried and asked her if she was comparing DeSantis to the Nazi leader.  'In a lot of ways, yes,' Fried responded.

    My 88-year-old Latina mother, triple vaxxed and a diligent mask wearer, is struggling with COVID. Two weeks ago, I sat outside her apartment in my camping chair as her blood pressure plunged 40 points in one day, her heart rate dropped to 50, and her hacking cough prevented her from getting any sleep. We couldn’t get her in for treatment in an emergency room, nor could we access any of the antiviral drugs or monoclonal antibody treatments we’ve heard so much about. I couldn’t even get a her a telemedicine appointment with a doctor — any doctor — for three days. And my mom is one of the fortunate who has full medical coverage through Kaiser Permanente, but that’s not enough when the healthcare system is under siege to the point that the governor calls in the National Guard to help. It took eight hours just to get a call back from a nurse to learn whether she could be seen in the ER. This, it seems, is what “learning to live with COVID” looks like. As she struggles...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, ABC7 took a dive into our archives to explore some of the many visits the civil rights activist paid to the Bay Area. From Berkeley to San Francisco and beyond, Dr. King visited the region several times throughout the 1960s.RELATED: Car caravans held in East Bay, virtual events to honor Martin Luther King Jr's legacy"He liked the Bay Area," Dr. Clayborne Carson, Martin Luther King, Jr. Centennial Professor Emeritus at FSI within Stanford University, said.

    Humiliated Novak Djokovic has landed back in Serbia to a hero's welcome after being deported from Australia ahead of the Australian Grand Slam starting today.   The defeated tennis star was booted out of Melbourne after the Australian government cancelled his visa for the second time following a legal battle - and banned him from entering the country for another three years.  Djokovic now faces being ousted from the French Open after politicians voted in a law banning all unvaccinated people from entering sports areas.   He took selfies with staff and fans after touching down in the Serbian capital Belgrade on a flight from Dubai after his name was taped over on the official Australian Open draw.   Fans, many holding Serbian flags, gathered outside Belgrade's Nikola Tesla airport on Monday morning chanting 'You are our champion, Novak!' as the tennis star touched down.  There are concerns that this year's grand slam title winner will be undermined by the absence of the defending champion.

    SAN PEDRO (CBSLA) – The Los Angeles Police Department and Union Pacific Police worked together this weekend to stop train package thefts.

    The affluent suburb of Paradise Valley in Arizona is a traditional Republican stronghold. With multi-million-dollar homes dotting a desert filled with towering saguaro cactus plants, its residents enjoy a choice of more than half a dozen golf courses, discreet upmarket shopping centres and award-winning restaurants, all nestled against the spectacular backdrop of Camelback Mountain.

    CHICAGO (CBS) – A 40-year-old man is shot and wounded at an auto repair shop in the Loop Saturday Morning. Around 10:55 a.m., an unknown offender approached a business on the 2200 block of South Wabash and began looking into a black Tesla trunk located on the victim’s lot.

    Shaun White finished third at the Laax Open in Switzerland, marking his first podium finish since he won his third Olympic gold medal in 2018 and all but cementing his spot at next month’s games in Beijing. White did not try his toughest combination of tricks in Saturday’s final, but his back-to-back 1080s and his signature Double McTwist 1260 were part of an opening run that scored an 84 and was enough for third. White didn’t try any flips on his second run. The 35-year-old came into the event as the fourth-ranked American on the World Snowboarding Points list. By finishing as the top American in Laax, it virtually guarantees he’ll earn one of the four men’s halfpipe spots for the U.S. team that will be named next week. Two-time Olympic silver medalist Ayumu Hirano won the contest to continue Japan’s dominance on the halfpipe, and Switzerland’s Jan Scherrer finished second. The Japanese have swept all the key run-up events to the Olympics this year, with the Winter X Games set for next weekend. The triple cork...
    Trends, as fleeting as most are, always seep back into style and relevance. Nothing is ever new. There’s always some upgrade, some variation of the same thing. In the thick of the Golden State Warriors’ struggles on offense, the notion of Stephen Curry needing the ball in his hands isn’t a trend that’s “seeped” back into style. Instead, the thought on-ball or ISO Steph is aging like the finest of wines that Napa and Sonoma could produce. In the Warriors’ 118-99 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night, they only scored 38 points in the first half. They’ve also failed to hit the 100 point mark five out of the past nine games. On the month so far, Curry is shooting 35.4 percent from the field and 29.9 percent from deep.  For nine consecutive games, including the Warriors’ 138-96 win Friday night in Chicago, he has shot less than 50 percent from the field. The seven games in January are only a pixel in the bigger picture of a slump that started in late November. It...
    Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer surrendered on late Thursday night and sent senators back to their home states for the long weekend, missing his deadline to pass voting legislation by Martin Luther King Jr. Day.   And it's unclear how he will pass the measure even after Joe Biden put the weight of the presidency behind it. Schumer had vowed to keep the Senate in session all weekend to try and meet his goal but ultimately conceded to factors that were leading to its defeat: Democratic Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema doubling down on their opposition to killing the filibuster, Democratic Senator Brian Schatz is out through Sunday after testing positive for COVID, and a massive snow storm is forecast for the Washington D.C. area on Sunday. But, the Majority Leader vowed, he will start debate on a massive voting rights package on Tuesday.  He has canceled next week's schedule recess to bring senators back to Washington for the debate. And he renewed his promise to call a vote to kill the filibuster if Republican senators use that legislative tool...
    By Jake Coyle | Associated Press Ring. Ring. Twenty-six years after the original, “Scream” calls again. We’re now up to the fifth film in the franchise, but the first since 2011’s “Scream 4.” Enough time has passed that this one, titled simply “Scream,” bears no number, no caller ID. That’s presumably because this “Scream,” which features the original cast and introduces a new generation of callers and stabbers, is sequel and reboot in one. Or, as one character explicitly defines in “Scream,” a “requel.” Part of the charm of the original “Scream,” a glossy, couldn’t-be-more-’90s slasher, was its knowingness. Wes Craven’s film, written by Kevin Williamson, made a plaything of genre conventions by having the characters openly discuss horror tropes while also being bludgeoned by them. The bright idea of the new “Scream” is to double down on the meta. Here, the long-running “Stab” movies — the fictional stand-in for the “Scream” franchise — is mocked as cheeseball shlock. In the movie’s opening phone call, one that mirrors the call Drew Barrymore received in the original, Tara (Jenna Ortega) —...

    HANFORD – It’s been a year now, but in this Central Valley farm town, like the nation, the divide has only grown. Todd Cotta was working in his gun shop when a customer came in with the news about David Valadao, the Republican congressman for whom Cotta had campaigned across Kings County and beyond just months before. Bewildered, Cotta turned to his phone and tapped in a text message to a man he considered a friend. “Hey David. Somebody’s spreading a nasty (rumor) that you voted to impeach Trump,” Cotta wrote. “I certainly hope that’s not true.” Within seconds, Valadao responded. “It’s true.” The two haven’t talked since. And, really, neither have the two sides of the country. HANFORD, CA – January 10: Kings Gun and Archery Center owner Todd Cotta shows a text exchange from a year ago with U.S. Rep.

    President Joe Biden's approval numbers continue to hover in the mid-40s, while a new poll shows that a little more than a third of American voters support changing the filibuster to get voting legislation passed.   A new Politico-Morning Consult survey showed that 44 per cent of voters somewhat or strongly support the job Biden is doing, versus 53 per cent who said they somewhat or strongly disapprove of the Democrat's handling of the job.   Additionally, 66 per cent of those surveyed describe the U.S. as on the 'wrong track,' with 40 per cent saying economic issues will determine how they vote in the 2022 midterm elections.  President Joe Biden's approval numbers continue to hover in the mid-40s, with 44 per cent of voters somewhat or strongly supporting the job Biden is doing, versus 53 per cent who said they somewhat or strongly disapprove of the Democrat's handling of the job Thirty-seven per cent of voters said they supported tinkering with the filibuster. Democrats were much more likely to support the move, with 62 per cent saying they supported it, versus just 17...
    A throwback, and a message that Manchin and Sinema need to hear. The U.S. Congress is pausing today to honor the first legislative giant to emerge in the 21st century, former Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, who will lie in state in the Capitol rotunda Wednesday. He is only the 33rd person to have that honor in the nation’s history. After the morning service, the Senate will get down to the business promised by Majority Leader Chuck Schumer: voting rights and election reforms. The promised filibuster showdown is probably not going to happen as early as Wednesday, which Schumer teased Tuesday. Republicans have blocked the Freedom to Vote and John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement acts from even proceeding to a floor debate several times over the past year. They won’t even let the bills move forward to debate, requiring a majority of 60 votes to get it done. That filibuster could be broken with a simple majority vote if it weren’t for the two pesky Democrats who refuse to do so. To that end, Schumer and a group of nine Democrats met with West Virginia Democrat...
    A doctor who was tired of using makeup to fill in her sparse eyebrows has revealed how she underwent a hair transplant procedure using strands from the back of her head. Simone Maybin from Myrtle Beach, Carolina, used to spend 20 minutes a day penciling in her eyebrows before having the seven-hour procedure with Dr Jason Champagne, who also performed Chrissy Teigen's eyebrow transplant.  Under local anesthetic, Dr Champagne, of Beverly Hills, extracted hair from the base of Simone's head, removing 5in from the roots, with the follicle still attached.  The process, known as Follicular Unit Transfer, then involves grafting follicles to the eyebrow line for permanent implantation. Simone, who volunteered to model the procedure for Dr Champagne, did not share how much the transplant costs but it can be up to $15,000.  Simone Maybin from Myrtle Beach, Carolina, used to spend 20 minutes a day penciling in her eyebrows before having the seven-hour procedure with Dr Jason Champagne, who also performed Chrissy Teigen's eyebrow transplant.

    New York (CNN Business)US prices for just about everything -- from cars and gasoline to food and clothing -- are rising at the fastest pace in decades. Overall, consumer prices rose in 2021 at the fastest pace in 39 years, meaning this is the worst inflation experienced by anyone not on the cusp of retirement or older.But, as those older Americans can tell you, as unwelcome as it is for consumers, today's price increases are nowhere near as bad as they were in the 1970s and early 1980s. And most importantly for policymakers trying to deal with today's price hikes, what fed the double-digit prices increases in those days are not a factor today -- nor are they likely to be ever again."We learned our lessons from that experience," said Louis Johnston, economics professor at College of Saint Benedict in Minnesota.Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, both tried and failed to bring prices under control. Ford's efforts included a "Whip Inflation Now" or WIN campaign, complete with shiny red buttons, that did little to help with prices. Inflation hit 12.2%...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — An Illinois state grant means new life for part of the Back of the Yards neighborhood that is well past its glory days.

Crump said in a statement to The Daily Beast on Tuesday that Walker was shot less than 100 yards away from his parents home. “We stand committed, with the family and the young son that Jason Walker left behind, to finding answers as to what happened to him when he was senselessly shot and killed by off-duty deputy Jeffrey Hash,” Crump said. “We have reason to believe that this was a case of ‘shoot first, ask later,’ a philosophy seen all too often within law enforcement. We look to the North Carolina SBI for a swift and transparent investigation so that we can get justice for Jason and his loved ones.” In a tweet on Monday, Crump asked, “Why was this level of EXCESSIVE force necessary?! We need transparency & answers as to why this off-duty officer ended Walker's...

    EL MONTE (KABC) -- The pandemic has also made it tough for local museums. And on top of that -- The American Military Museum in El Monte also recently had to deal with a fire.Craig Michelson's father, an officer in WWII, started the museum nearly 60 years ago. It now has more 180 displays. From military choppers, to rare buses, and a full collection of WWII tanks."A lot of the veterans will come through, they will bring their kids, they will have their grandkids, and they will go 'oh I served on this tank, this was the truck I drove,' and it brings back a lot of memories," said Michelson.That's why Craig is breathing a major sigh of relief - just last week, he almost lost everything... when a fire broke out on the neighboring property. He credits firefighters for saving him from heartbreak."There was absolutely no damage," said Michelson. "I just love LA County. They stepped up and did a wonderful job."A close call after an already difficult year, shut down due to COVID; now, the museum is back...
    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) was complying with requests from the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack until former President Donald Trump told him to stop, Punchbowl News reported Monday. But Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), a member of the committee, told Jordan that he should refer back to his own words during one of the many Benghazi hearings his party held last decade. Speaking to MSNBC's John Heilemann, Raskin quoted from a statement Jordan made about the Benghazi probe "To answer Jim Jordan, I would quote Jim Jordan from the views that he expressed in the final Benghazi report, where he said that all of the truth must come out," said Raskin. "Everybody needs to testify, and nobody's got the right to hide anything from Congress. So, I think he had it right then. Jim Jordan, more than anybody else, knows what dogged, aggressive investigation is about, even when he's on a wild goose chase, he demands all the information he wants, and we're not on that. We are on the central investigative mission certainly of this decade, if...
    Though emissions are still down from 2019 levels, a preliminary report suggests coal emissions in 2021 increased 6% compared with 2020. It’s always one step forward and three steps back when it comes to how the U.S. is handling reducing emissions. There’s some good news when it comes to last year’s emissions numbers: 2021 saw fewer tons of greenhouse gases being released than in 2019. But compared with 2020, it appears as if greenhouse gas emissions have decently bounced back. A preliminary report released by the nonpartisan research provider Rhodium Group found that last year “emissions increased 6.2% relative to 2020, though emissions remained 5% below 2019 levels.” The economy, however, appears to still be lagging. Goldman Sachs, S&P Global Ratings, and others forecast that year-over-year GDP growth will likely only be around 5.7% at the most for 2021. Study co-author Kate Larsen told CNN that she credited coal for the spike in emissions. “Emissions grew even faster than the economic recovery and that was largely the rebound in coal generation.” Larsen also noted that few restrictions dissuaded companies from taking the cheaper, less...

    DRY January is in full swing for many people and if you've managed to go ten days without a drink, then hats off to you. But even if you're booze free at the moment, the impact of weeks of drinking can wreak havoc on your health and wellbeing. 1If you're feeling the affects of alcohol after the festive season and New Year, then your body might need a break Christmas boozing usually starts well before the big day and carries on into the New Year so it's no surprise that many of us still don't feel back on form. Dr Elizabeth Rogers, associate clinical director at Bupa Health Clinics said feeling constantly tired, regularly experiencing hangovers, sweating a lot, and having frequent headaches are all signs you've had too much booze. She explained that you should also watch out for psychological changes too, such as feeling anxious, experiencing mood swings and intensely craving alcohol. But the good news is, Dr Rogers said, that we can reverse the impact that booze has had on our bodies by simply cutting back on...
    A foraging badger has uncovered a trove of 209 Roman coins dating as far back as the third century in a Spanish cave, scientists report.   Hailed as an 'exceptional find', the coins include some 'from the distant mints' of London, Constantinople and Antioch, an ancient city once located in what is now modern-day Turkey.  Researchers think they were hidden in the cave before the arrival of the Suebi, a Germanic people who invaded the Iberian Peninsula in AD 409, known for their infantry and ambush tactics.  The coins are thought to have been uncovered by a badger in a desperate hunt for berries and worms in the cave at Berció, a parish in the municipality of Grado within the Spanish province of Asturias.  The hoard of 2019 coins (pictured) found in northern Spain have been described as 'an exceptional find'  Three archaeologists work at the location of the finding. The coins are now being cleaned at the Archaeological Museum of Asturias ORIGINS OF THE 209 GRADO COINS- London - Antioch (ancient Greek city near modern-day Antakya, Turkey) - Constantinople (capital of the Roman/Byzantine Empire) ...
    Getty Brooklyn Nets rookie Cam Thomas looks on during a game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Although his rookie campaign with the Brooklyn Nets got off to a slow start, Cam Thomas has found his footing as a pro baller in recent weeks. Over his last 10 games, the first-round pick has averaged 10.7 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per contest. Although he was just 4-for-11 from the floor in the game, he hit double figures again on Sunday against the San Antonio Spurs. Clearly, though, he saved his best bucket for last. With less than 10 seconds left to play in overtime, Kevin Durant made a strong move toward the elbow from the backcourt. However, when the Spurs brought a double-team, he was forced to swing the ball back above the break to Thomas. As the defense scrambled, Thomas went full-on KD with a hard drive of his own, getting past Jakob Poeltl and into the paint where he threw up an off-balance floater. Despite the high degree of difficulty on the attempt and the pressure of...

    Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-Texas) week of blunders and groveling have come back to haunt him. On Friday, January 7, the Republican lawmaker became the focal point of a new damning supercut that highlights his recent ordeal, according to HuffPost. Earlier this week, the Texas senator faced conservative backlash after he described the Jan. 6 insurrection as a "terrorist attack." In an effort to smooth things over with his base, he appeared on Fox News with Tucker Carlson which subsequently made things worse. Cruz resorted to apologizing and groveling for Carlson's forgiveness. The supercut highlighted Cruz's remarks over the last year noting that this is not the first time he has shared the same assessment. On multiple occasions, Cruz has described the Capitol riots as an act of terrorism. The supercut also offered a timeline of his remarks as it replayed how this particular week turned out.

    ABC "Dancing With the Stars" Fans of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” have high hopes for season 31 of the ballroom competition, and some are hoping that the show will have some type of redemption or all-star season. Of course, there is no information about “Dancing With the Stars” season 31 at the time of writing, as the show has not yet been renewed and would not air until the fall season of 2022. Season 30 did see lower ratings than previous seasons, however, so there is always the possibility that executives may want to do some type of season with returning celebrities in order to lure back viewers who may have stopped watching.Fans Want Some Celebrities to Get a Second Chance View this post on Instagram A post shared by Dancing With The Stars #DWTS (@dancingabc) In a Reddit thread titled, “Who would you cast for a redemption season?,” fans shared who they’d want to see back in the ballroom once again.

    The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the victim as 65-year-old Richard P. Miller from Las Vegas. His death was ruled a homicide due to multiple gunshot wounds. According to KVVU, Miller and Holland were acquaintances. Holland's attorney, P. David Westbrook, said that his client — a simple hapless car thief — merely happened to steal the wrong vehicle. "The body recovered in this case was in the second truck (the Chevy) not the first (the Toyota)," Westbrook said. "Additionally, the truck bed was covered and the body was stored in sealed coolers." "In order to presume that Mr. Holland had prior knowledge of the contents of this truck, you would also have to believe that he led police to the body intentionally," Westbrook added. "The question is: Why would he do this?" KLAS-TV reported, however, that Holland reportedly murdered and dismembered Miller, placed the body parts in coolers, and drove around with them in the vehicle "for weeks" after Miller was reported missing earlier in December. Holland, according to authorities, was the...
    TYSON FURY pleaded with the referee to stop his 2014 fight with Derek Chisora to spare his opponent from a severe beating. Del Boy is currently on a three-fight losing streak after a defeat to Oleksandr Usyk was followed by back-to-back losses to Joseph Parker in little over a year. 2Tyson Fury pleaded with the ref to stop him from badly beating Derek Chisora in 2014Credit: Getty 2Battered Del Boy was eventually pulled out of the fight after the tenth roundCredit: Getty Despite that, the 38-year-old Brit has recently declared he is open to a battle with former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. However, the man who dethroned the American and then retained the title against the Bronze Bomber once delivered a brutal beat-down to Chisora. And that should serve as a warning to the Londoner as he tries to secure another step-up to the elite level. Chisora had already lost his British and Commonwealth belts to the Gypsy King back in 2011. But that did not stop him from taking a rematch against Fury three years later. The two...
