    NEW YORK (AP/CBS) — Presumptive democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is expected to announce his running mate soon. For all the secrecy and speculation that typically surrounds the search for a vice presidential candidate, the decision rarely sways an election. But ahead of Joe Biden’s imminent announcement, this year could be different. At a minimum, the decision will shift the force of the campaign — at least temporarily — away from Donald Trump’s turbulent presidency onto Biden himself. That’s not a place many Democrats are comfortable given Biden’s proclivity for gaffes and the persistent lack of excitement behind his candidacy. More fundamentally, the choice offers Biden an unusual opportunity to unify a party still reeling from Trump’s 2016 win and solidify its future. He’s...

    The nation's top modeler of hurricanes and tropical storms is predicting more disastrous weather than ever before during what has already been a stressful year for many. Analysts with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Thursday that they expect 19 to 25 named storms with wind speeds greater than 39 mph. The organization included a prediction that seven to 11 of those storms will turn into hurricanes, which would make this year among the most active seasons in U.S. history. "This year, we expect more, stronger, and longer-lived storms than average, and our predicted ACE range extends well above NOAA's threshold for an extremely active season," said Gerry Bell, a seasonal hurricane forecaster with the NOAA's Climate Prediction Center....

General Motors is hoping history repeats itself starting Thursday night with the unveiling of the Cadillac Lyriq crossover. The vehicle, which will debut at 7 p.m. ET, is the most pivotal new product for the quintessential American luxury brand since the debut of the Escalade SUV in 1998. It marks Cadillac's first all-electric vehicle as part of a multibillion plan to lead GM away from vehicles with internal combustion engines to battery-electric vehicles.

    Forecasters expect the Labor Department to report that about 1.6 million jobs were added to payrolls in July and that the unemployment rate dropped to 10.6% from June’s 11.1%. Before the pandemic, 1.6 million new jobs in a month would have been a record. Given the cataclysmic job separations of the spring, however, it would suggest that the recovery has fallen off the pace needed to return the labor market back to normal and avoid a deep and lasting recession. In comparison, 5 million jobs were created in May and June. It's also possible that job creation has stalled out. Payroll processor ADP reported on Wednesday that just 167,000 jobs were created in July. The company reported that more...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Internet access has been a hot topic for Philadelphia parents after the city’s school district announced plans to go completely virtual through November. Mayor Jim Kenney and Superintendent Dr. William Hite are expected to make a major announcement regarding internet access during the city’s 1 p.m. briefing Thursday. Philadelphia School District students were given free Chromebooks to ensure all students would have a device to complete their work through. But reliable internet service has been noted as a major barrier for some students to successfully stay engaged with virtual education options. Last week, the school district revised its original plan for a hybrid learning system to 100% virtual learning due to coronavirus concerns.
    SAUGUS (CBS) — Three police officers stabbed in Saugus Thursday morning are expected to survive.

    LONDON (AP) – The Bank of England left its benchmark interest rate at a record low of 0.1 per cent on Thursday as it expressed caution about how rapidly the United Kingdom’s economy will recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. The bank also left its target for buying government and corporate bonds unchanged at 745 billion pounds ($980 billion). The decision to hold off more stimulus was widely expected as the uncertainty over the pandemic could require more action later, economists say. New figures due next week are expected to show the economy contracted almost 19 per cent in the second quarter from the previous three-month period. That would be better than the central bank’s forecast in May for a 25...
    Michigan and Nevada both declared that “racism” was a “public health crisis” on Wednesday, joining Wisconsin, with Colorado set to soon become the fourth state to do so. Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer created a Black Leadership Advisory Council to “elevate Black voices” and reportedly push state employees to undergo implicit bias training. “Today, I also signed an executive directive declaring racism as a public health crisis in Michigan,” Whitmer said on Wednesday. “We have a lot of work to do to eradicate the systemic racism that black Americans have faced for generations, and it’s going to take time. But the most important thing we can do during this time is work closely with leaders across the state, in every...

    NBCUniversal has begun making staff cuts across its entertainment portfolio including its sports and cable channels, broadcast networks, movie studio and theme parks, according to people familiar with the matter. The layoffs have been anticipated for several months and are primarily tied to the effect the coronavirus has had on many of the Comcast Corp. unit’s operations.

Three members of the Huizar family — his wife Richelle, his mother Isidra and his brother Salvador — are mentioned repeatedly in the 113-page indictment against the councilman, who has pleaded not guilty to bribery, money laundering, racketeering and other charges. Prosecutors have alleged that Huizar family members laundered his bribe proceeds, receiving cash from the councilman and then paying his bills. They also claimed that Huizar’s wife, who has not been named by prosecutors but is easily identifiable from details in the criminal complaint...
    It’s been a rough couple of years for Green Bay Packers and their supporters. Aaron Rodgers led his team to the NFC Championship game last year. However, he failed to lead his team to the Super Bowl game as they fell to a 37-20 loss at the hands of Kyle Shanahan’s San Francisco 49ers. One of the major criticism directed at the Packers was their lack of depth in the wideout department. The Packers were expected to strengthen in that regard this offseason. They were rumored to have been in contact with a number of rookie wide receivers that appeared in the 2020 NFL draft. However, the Mark Murphy-led organization opted to trade up and bring in rookie quarterback –...

He goes for it. When they drafted Russell Wilson, they had just traded for Matt Flynn and gave him money, they still drafted and started Wilson. Oh, well....

    This content is provided by Clark A. Kendall of Kendall Capital in Rockville, MD. Individuals should plan ahead as local governments expect shortfalls during pandemic. Few people escape the pain of major economic downturns, and the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic is no exception. While it may seem like certain jobs are more at risk than others, the continuing need for shutdowns means there most likely will be unexpected layoffs, hiring freezes, salary reductions, or other financial consequences. Unfortunately, that includes municipal jobs, which some see as protected during tough times. However, local governments are working to make up for current expected budget shortfalls, and positions that had been considered stable in the future might be affected. “The economy remains in a...
