    RIVERSIDE COUNTY (KABC) -- Riverside County Animal Services took in 37 dogs last week from a man who said he needed help after finding out he'd likely get evicted if he didn't get rid of some of the pets.According to the county, a man in Cathedral City visited the Coachella Valley Animal Campus in Thousand Palms requesting assistance. He told workers he would likely get evicted if he didn't reduce the number of dogs at his home.Crews took all 37 dogs, mostly Chihuahuas, to their shelter where they all underwent medical exams and received vaccinations. Thirty-one of the dogs have been sent to a partner organization called Never Forgotten Animal Society in Pahrump, Nevada.Four of them got to stay with the man as his personal pets after they were spayed, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- The grandmother of Laquan McDonald spoke out Thursday at a press conference against the upcoming release of former Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke.Van Dyke, now in his mid-40s, has been in custody since his conviction in October 2018 on aggravated battery and second degree murder charges for the shooting death of Laquan McDonald. In 2014, Van Dyke shot the Black teen 16 times. Video of the shooting from a police dashboard camera, released more than a year later, was a key piece of evidence in the trial and inflamed public reaction across the country.Van Dyke was found guilty of second-degree murder and 16 counts of aggravated battery, one count for each shot that hit McDonald.At a press conference Thursday morning at St. Sabina, Laquan McDonald's grandmother, Tracie Hunter, called for Van Dyke to remain in prison."Please don't let this man out because he did a hideous crime," Hunter said. "Everybody knows that he killed my grandson...I'm not going to rest or be satisfied until this man does his rightful time.Van Dyke has spent the last three-plus...
    Nicolas Meloche was already looking forward to seeing his mother, Natalie, in south Florida this week, helping her celebrate her birthday before the Sharks play the Panthers in Sunrise on Saturday night. Now Meloche will be able to bring his mom a special gift – the puck from his first NHL goal. Meloche scored his first career goal in 21 NHL games on his mom’s birthday Wednesday, a second-period snipe that proved to be the game-winner in the Sharks’ 4-1 victory over the Washington Capitals. “For sure calling her after I’m done here,” Meloche said. “Just special that it’s on her birthday. We talked earlier. She’s in Florida right now. It’s fun. I’ll be able to give her the puck (Thursday or Friday), so it’s great timing.” Meloche has patiently waited for opportunities to play with the Sharks since he was acquired by the team from the Colorado Avalanche prior to the start of the 2019-2020 season. Meloche, 24, played seven NHL games last season, and six more from Oct. 30 to Nov. 11 this...

    GEORGETOWN, Maine (AP) — A rare species of eagle that has thrilled bird lovers and baffled scientists since arriving in Maine last month might not be in a hurry to leave. The Steller’s sea eagle arrived in Maine in late December after a brief stop in Massachusetts more than a month ago. It has stuck to Maine’s middle coast, eating fish and ducks and attracting hundreds of birdwatchers from all over the world. READ MORE: Major Winter Snow Storm With Blizzard Conditions Possible SaturdayThe sea eagle numbers only a few thousand worldwide and is native to northeastern Asia, including Russia and Japan, and has wingspans of up to 8 feet (2.4 meters). The bird is far off course, and it’s still unclear why it came here at all, said Doug Hitchcox, staff naturalist at Maine Audubon. But the bird doesn’t appear to be in any kind of danger, Hitchcox said. It has an ample food supply and is living in habitat that is similar enough to its native range, he said. It’s possible it could eventually return to its home...

    Millions of U.S. workers are quitting their jobs in what some are calling the "Great Resignation." Others, such as Kate Lister, president of Global Workplace Analytics, see it as the "Great Reevaluation," as workers seek increased flexibility. Lister says during this talent shortage, companies are going to need to meet the demands of workers, which will likely include a hybrid model. Her research found that 56% of U.S. workers have a job that can be done at least partially remotely. She says allowing employees to shift their hours, which days they work, and even when they take a break can have a huge impact on retention. Technology will have an outsized role in how companies implement their hybrid models. Lister says that within five years, employees may be able to meet via hologram instead of through a video call. There are also new technologies coming online that could help support diversity initiatives. For example, artificial intelligence can offer post-meeting reports that count how often the voices speaking were men or women, or if the voices had an accent. Lister says...
    NEW YORK (WABC) -- A New York Appellate Judge granted a stay in the state's lawsuit over the COVID-19 face mask mandate, meaning it remains in place while case is appealed -- and schools must enforce it.New York State had quickly filed an appeal after a Supreme Court judge in Nassau Count ruled that the New York's mask mandate couldn't be enforced.The mandate had been reinstituted over concerns about a winter surge of coronavirus cases.Masks were optional Tuesday in many Nassau County school districts.Wednesday, students and staff need to wear their masks that appellate judge judge issued a stay until a hearing later this week.The issue isn't the mask mandate itself but how it was implemented.A judge in Nassau County saying the state health department does not have the authority to issue the statewide school mask mandate.Before Monday's ruling, Governor Kathy Hochul has already implied that the school mask mandate would be lifted once infection numbers went down.But that wasn't good enough for many."How can you have a mandate where you don't know where it begins and you don't know...

    MANCHESTER UNITED transfer target Joao Palhinha is nearing an exit from Sporting Lisbon, according to reports. And Palhinha, 26, is reportedly eyeing a 'dream move' to the Premier League. 1Joao Palhinha (right) could leave Sporting this monthCredit: EPA There was interest in the midfielder last summer but his £33million price tag deterred a bid from being made. But Sporting have now lowered that fee to £25m and according to Record Palhinha has one foot out of the door. Manchester United are believed to be keen along with Premier League rivals Wolves and Tottenham. The Red Devils may also have to fight off interest from Sevilla and Atletico Madrid - both Spanish sides are believed to want Palhinha. There have reportedly been several approaches from agents in recent days enquiring about Palhinha and any deal would have to be completed quickly given the transfer window closes next Monday. Sporting manager Ruben Amorim hopes Palhinha will stay but he was unable to rule out a move a few days ago. Most read in SportSZIL SHOCK Anti-vax Olympic rings king Csollany dies of...
    A New York appeals court judge on Tuesday granted a stay in an appeal over mask mandates in the state - keeping the rule in effect during the legal process, to the delight of Governor Kathy Hochul.  A day earlier, a judge had struck down Hochul's mask mandate, one week before it was due to expire.  The state attorney general, Letitia James, had filed a motion to stay the ruling in an attempt to put it on hold while the state filed a formal appeal, and on Tuesday James's request was approved. Justice Robert Miller of the state appeals court temporarily blocked the lower-court ruling, siding with the state. The requirements in New York state, home to around 20 million people, include wearing masks in schools, on public transit and other public indoor spaces. Kathy Hochul, the governor of New York, on Tuesday praised the temporary stay on the ruling that face masks indoors were unconstitutional, thanking the appeals court 'for siding with common sense and granting an interim stay to keep the state's important masking regulations in place' ...
    A judge in New York ruled that the state's mask mandate will temporarily remain in place as a legal battle over the matter is ongoing in state court.  Appellate Court Judge Hon. Robert J. Miller issued a stay on Tuesday to retain the mask mandate pending ongoing court procedures for the case, court documents showed. His decision followed Assistant Attorney General Judith Vale's argument against removing the mask mandate, asserting that the Department of Health had "ample statutory authority" to issue the order. The attorney general's appeal came after a decision from Nassau County Supreme Court Justice Thomas Rademaker that determined Gov. Kathy HochulKathy HochulYoung officer slain in Harlem joined to help 'chaotic city' 'Unprecedented:' States invest in child care to recover pandemic losses Equilibrium/Sustainability — Airlines scrap US-bound flights over 5G MORE (D)'s indoor mask mandate was “unconstitutional.” “The court cannot find any law enacted by the State Legislature that specifically gives the Department of Health and its Commissioner the authority to enact a law,” Rademaker said in his ruling. New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) issued a statement on Tuesday...
    A New York Appellate Judge granted a stay in the state’s lawsuit over its COVID-19 indoor mask mandate late Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 25, putting it back in place, including schools, much to the chagrin of some parents. A day earlier, in Nassau County Justice Thomas Rademaker ruled that New York Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office had overstepped its authority with its December mask mandate that was issued through then-acting Health Commissioner Mary T. Bassett. However, the state quickly appealed the decision, and on Tuesday, the mandate was put back in place. Earlier story - COVID-19: Uncertainty Abounds After NY Supreme Court Strikes Down Mask Mandate A formal ruling on the matter is expected in the near future, with a hearing scheduled for Friday, Jan. 28 in downtown Brooklyn. The ping-ponging decisions by the judges regarding the mandate caused mass confusion for some schools, which were left in the dark and forced to scramble to make decisions for the morning's classes.  The current mandate is set to expire on Tuesday, Feb. 1, according to the state Department of Health. 
“As governor, my...
    "Masks are not mandatory for students, period. Yet Kathy Hochul is still trying to force young children to wear a mask in school, shamefully disregarding the rule of law," she added. Stefanik directed her constituents to contact her office if their children are being told they must wear a mask in schools, contrary to the Supreme Court's order. Hochul enacted the mask mandate in December 2021. It required that face coverings be worn in schools and other indoor public places to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. But Hochul's rule was challenged in court by opponents who said the state overstepped its authority by implementing the mandate without going through the state legislature. On Monday, Nassau County Supreme Court Judge Thomas Rademaker ruled that the mask mandate was an unconstitutional overreach by the executive branch. "There can be no question that every person in this State wishes, wants and prays that this era of COVID ends soon and they will surely do their part to see that is accomplished," Rademaker said. "However, enacting any laws to...
    Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) vowed Tuesday to stay in his reelection race after his home was the subject of an FBI raid last week.  "I am fully cooperating with law enforcement and committed to ensuring that justice and the law is upheld," Cuellar said in a video statement filmed in front of his childhood home. "There is an ongoing investigation that will show that there is no wrongdoing on my part."

The congressman's office released a statement after the raid on Wednesday, saying he would fully cooperate.  "Congressman Cuellar will fully cooperate in any investigation," the statement read.

    In the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple prestigious American universities announced that they would not require students to submit SAT or ACT scores due to the “extraordinary circumstance” facing them. However, in recent years, standardized tests have received intense criticism from people who characterize them as unfair to poor and minority students who may not have access to expensive test preparation materials. Ibram X. Kendi, author of "How to Be an Anti-Racist" and "Stamped from the Beginning," said in October 2020 that “standardized tests have become the most effective racist weapon ever devised to objectively degrade Black and Brown minds and legally exclude their bodies from prestigious schools.” In response to charges such as Kendi’s, the American university system has not only been disregarding standardized test scores of prospective students but has begun to actively discriminate against demographics of students who routinely perform well on them. In 2020, Asian students scored in the 78th percentile of the ACT but faced discrimination when applying for admittance to Ivy League universities. A two-year investigation into Yale...
    VIDEO3:4003:40Investors should ride out bitcoin, but do not lever it: Anthony ScaramucciSquawk Box Buyers should cool off on cryptocurrency concerns and make some long-term investments instead, SkyBridge Capital's Anthony Scaramucci told CNBC on Tuesday. Some people think bitcoin is "rat poison," as billionaire investor Warren Buffett once described it; others think it's the worst thing to ever happen to civilization, Scaramucci said in a "Squawk Box" interview. "Everyone is a long-term investor until you have short-term losses, and then you start freaking out." "Take a chill pill, stay long bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies like Algorand and Ethereum, and I think you're going to be very well-served long-term in those investments," the hedge fund founder added. Bitcoin was back above $37,000 on Tuesday, one day after briefly dropping below $33,000. Even with its bounce, the world's biggest digital coin has been trading way below its all-time high of around $69,000 reached back in November. Some crypto analysts fear the onset of a "crypto winter," like the bear markets seen in 2017 and 2018 when when bitcoin plunged some 80% from then-record high...
    What else? Details about the victim's medical status were sparse at the time this report was published. But KTVI reported that she only suffered a superficial wound and has since been released from the hospital. The outlet added that Clay is being held on a cash-only bond of $150,000. She reportedly has a bond reduction hearing set for sometime this week. It was not immediately clear whether Clay had made bail as of Tuesday afternoon. But a judge said last week that if Clay is released, she must stay out of contact with the victim and other employees at the McDonald's and she also must stay at least 1,000 feet away from the restaurant. TheBlaze reached out to the Normandy Police Department and the St. Louis County prosecutor's office for more details about the incident but did not hear back before publication.

    NEW YORK (WABC) -- The Metropolitan Transit Authority is warning New York City subway riders not to stand at the edge of the platform after several disturbing incidents of people being pushed into oncoming trains.Eyewitness News reporter Kristin Thorne met with retired Hoboken Emergency Services Unit Supervisor Cesar Olavarria at the 179th Street station in Jamaica to go over basic platform safety tips. Olavarria also served with the Hudson County SWAT team.Olavarria said riders should have situational awareness, meaning they should be looking at everyone around them and should be in a protective state of mind."It's about mindset," he said. "Don't have a false sense of security."Olavarria said people should not go on their phones while waiting on the platform because then their eyes are not on what's happening around them. Not to mention, when most people are on their phones they're leaning forward and down - the worst position you can be in to respond to an attack.Olavarria encouraged riders to put their phones away and not even look at them while waiting on the platform.He said people should...
    The head of the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) in New York is urging people to stay away from the edge of subway platforms after multiple cases of people being pushed onto the tracks in recent weeks. "These incidents are unacceptable and have to stop," MTA Chair and CEO Janno Lieber told local news outlet WABC on Sunday. "I don't want to tell people that they should stand on subway platforms and feel like they're, you know, in threat of their lives," he added. "But everybody should stand away from the edge of the platform." Lieber said that the transit authority is also looking into making changes to the platforms, such as platform screen doors. However, he said there are issues that the MTA must consider, such as the "ability to maintain ADA [Americans with Disabilities Act] accessibility," according to the outlet.  He continued that there were also physical challenges in making changes to the platform. "Literally, the structure of our very old, 100-year-old stations don't accommodate it," Lieber said. "And there's some real ventilation issues: How will we ventilate — for fire code...
    Whoopi Goldberg described HBO’s Bill Maher saying that he was done with COVID-19 as “flippant” during Monday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View.” During his “Real Time” monologue, Maher said, “I don’t want to live in your paranoid world anymore, your masked paranoid world. You go out. It’s silly now, you know, you mask, you have to have a card, you have to have a booster. They scan your head like you are a cashier and I’m a bunch of bananas. I’m not bananas. You are.” Whoopi Goldberg said, “That’s not really funny to people who have lost their kids to this vaccine [virus]. Or people who lost family members or dear friends to this.” She added, “Listen, nobody on the planet really wants to go through this.

Bill Maher and Whoopi Goldberg (Reuters/Getty Images) BILL MAHER IDENTIFIES LEFT'S ‘ACHILLES HEEL’ IN WIDE-RANGING INTERVIEW "The View" co-host lashed out at Maher, telling him to "stay away from everybody" if he decided he no longer wanted to follow any of the measures used to prevent spread of the virus, such as wearing masks, and argued he was forgetting that some at-risk people were still unable to get vaccinated.  "That’s not really funny to...
    Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat candidate in Texas’s gubernatorial race, said during a Friday news conference that he wants President Joe Biden to stay away from his campaign. O’Rourke, coming off of failed campaign attempts — losing against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in 2018, and a failed presidential bid in 2020 — said he has “no interest” in receiving help from Biden or any Washington, DC politician during his campaign for governor. “I’m not interested in any national politician — anyone outside of Texas — coming into this state to help decide the outcome of this,” O’Rourke said in his news conference, according to Dallas News. “I think we all want to make sure that we’re working with, listening to, and voting with one another here in Texas.” Biden, who has now been in office for over a year, has been plagued with bad poll numbers after dealing with the consequences of poor decision-making during his presidency, such as a supply chain crisis, record-high inflation, and the botched Afghanistan withdrawal. Earlier this month, Biden received his lowest approval rating numbers since taking office, according to a...
    The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg slammed Real Time host Bill Maher over his comments about the coronavirus. “I don’t want to live in your paranoid world anymore. Your masked paranoid world, you know, you go out. It’s silly now, you know, you mask, you have to have a card. You have to have a booster. They scan your head,” he said on HBO’s Real Time. “Like you’re a cashier and I’m a bunch of bananas. I’m not bananas. You are.” On Monday’s The View, following playing a clip of Maher’s remarks, Goldberg said: That’s not really funny to people who’ve lost their kids to this vaccine. Or people who lost family members or dear friends to this. It’s just, you know, listen. Nobody on the planet really wants to go through this. This is not something we’re doing because it’s, you know, sexually gratifying. This is what we’re doing to protect our families, and you don’t have to do it, but stay away from everybody because if you are the one who’s not paying  attention, and you’re coughing and sneezing, you don’t want to — then stay out of the public, man. This is not — nobody wants this. I don’t want it, and I think he’s forgetting that people...
    The U.S. is operating surveillance flights over Ukraine to track the Russian build-up of troops at its borders as Joe Biden considers keeping special forces in the Eastern European country in the event of a full-scale invasion. Since late December, the Air Force has been regularly flying RC-135 Rivet Joint electronic-eavesdropping planes over Ukraine in order to listen in on Russian ground commanders' communications, The New York Times reported Sunday. The article notes the Air Force is also operating ground-surveillance flights with E-8 JSTARS to track Russian troop buildup at Ukraine's border and movements of Kremlin forces. Biden specifically is interested in using spy planes to find indications that Russia is considering deploying nuclear weapons to the border with Ukraine. Russian officials have already warned of this potential. In conjunction with sending more troops – which the Times says Biden is considering deploying 50,000 – the president is also looking at approving sending more aircraft to the region. An NBC News report notes that some options presented to Biden during his Camp David meeting on Saturday are ahead of any...
    PRINCE William is said to want to remain neutral in a feud between his dad and brother over claims made about Camilla in Harry's imminent memoir. Charles has reportedly told aides he fears his younger son's new book will be an "excoriating takedown" of the Duchess of Cornwall, particularly in the early years of the couple's romance. 1Prince William, Prince Harry and Prince Charles in 2019Credit: Getty In an attempt to stop him blaming her for damaging his childhood, and even slating her further, Charles has extended an olive branch to Harry. He is also said to have confided in his eldest son about his worries and requested he "go in and bat for Camilla" publicly should any hurtful claims be made against her. But while Wills cares for his father deeply, he is believed to want to steer well clear of the drama. A source told The Sun: "Charles has shared his concerns with William, and is keen he somehow goes on the record and sticks up for Camilla, should the book attack her....

    Prince Charles invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to stay with him when they visit the UK amid fears his son's tell-all memoir will criticise the Duchess of Cornwall. The Prince of Wales reportedly invited Prince Harry and his family to stay with him at his home in the hope of meeting his granddaughter Lilibet for the first time after she was born in California in June last year. The offer, which would be the first time the family have come together since Duke and Duchess of Sussex quit as working royals, was made amid their ongoing security concerns ahead of the Queen's Jubilee, according to reports.  It also comes amid claims that Prince Charles fears his son's memoir will slam the Duchess of Cornwall and her relationship with the Prince of Wales during Prince Harry's childhood.   A source told The Sun: 'Harry is fiercely loyal and protective of his late mother and her legacy, and didn't approve of Camilla sweeping in as the great love of his father's life.

    Slain New York City police Officer Jason Rivera, 22, graduated from high school just five years before a suspect’s bullet took his life on Friday.  In 2017, the year he graduated from Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School in New York City, he made an inspirational video for younger students at the high school, urging them to stay focused on their classes.  "I want to motivate ya," he said in the video which the school shared on its Instagram page, offering condolences to his family.  "Jason had a huge, warm smile and a personality to match," the school's post said. "Jason was an exemplary member of our school community, who embodied our core values and lived a life that was dedicated to improving our community. Thank you for your service and sacrifice Jason." Rivera said in the video when he was a freshman he didn’t have anyone to motivate him.  "I want y’all to, like, hear me, hear my voice and to know you’re going to get through it," he said. "Ya gotta put in the work. Ya gotta put in 100 percent...

    “A lot of Hollywood has a lot of missions, right? And you know, you want to put your name onto something that you believe in, but it doesn’t make a difference. And that’s the reality," said Hawn, who has been an actress since the 1960s and has 38 acting credits under her name. Hawn admitted, “I stay in my lane." "But the reality is, is that if we want to do anything, we want to do it for all people, not just for a group or whatever," noted the "Overboard" movie star. “What makes polarity even more is creating teams on either side of the aisle,” the Oscar-winning actress continued. “And I don’t think that’s what we do. I think we entertain. I think we bring awareness to people, just of their ability to laugh, to have joy, to experience it, to cry. We are emotional beings and create emotion in others. And it’s in this case, I think we’re in service.” Goldie Hawn on The Role of Hollywood and Performers in Society | The Megyn Kelly...
    The Russian foreign minister's team warned Japan to stay out of the brewing Ukraine crisis after U.S. officials touted “close alignment” with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in the lead-up to a potential eruption of violence in Eastern Europe. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's office expressed "puzzlement" at the "inadmissibility and senselessness" of Japan's warning that it was poised to take "strong actions" in light of the Eastern European power's recent actions in Ukraine. "We reviewed with puzzlement the reports that at the Japan-US summit yesterday, the Japanese side attempted to threaten Russia with some ‘strong actions,’ ‘in close coordination with the US and other allies’ at that, in the Ukrainian context,” Lavrov’s subordinates at the Russian Embassy in Tokyo wrote Saturday in a Facebook post translated by state media. “The inadmissibility and senselessness of such statements, as well as their counterproductiveness for the atmosphere of Russian-Japanese relations and dialogue, are obvious.” NATO SHOOTS DOWN RUSSIAN ULTIMATUM AS DISPUTE FLARES AFTER BLINKEN-LAVROV MEETING Russia’s mobilization of military forces around Ukraine in recent months has stoked widespread misgivings about an expanded...

    As Peggy Huang drove through the hills of Yorba Linda, she passed ranch-style homes with backyard stables. White picket fences lined equestrian trails snaking through the Orange County city, whose motto is the “Land of Gracious Living.” Farther uphill, newer houses were closer together but still featured the open space most suburban residents desire, with trails, parks and churches nearby. Huang, a city councilwoman, wants Yorba Linda to stay this way. Along with officials in many other O.C. cities, she is fighting a state mandate to build new homes — more than 183,000 countywide over the next seven years. The requirement, called the Regional Housing Needs Assessment, dates back more than five decades, with new goals set for each city every eight years. “I’m not a NIMBY,” Huang said, using an acronym for “not in my backyard.” “I just think it’s important for people to understand that one size fits all doesn’t work, and that’s the very policy Sacramento is pushing on us.” Yorba Linda City Councilwoman Peggy Huang stands in front of three- and...
