San Jose official works to reduce gun violence, boost mental health measures
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KRON) – A San Jose city leader proposes boosting mental health measures to prevent mass shootings. The changes follow the VTA rail yard shooting in May where nine people were killed by a disgruntled worker. The plan put forth by San Jose City Councilmember Raul Peralez centers around evaluating workplace culture and preventing gun violence. The city has suffered through recent trauma following mass shootings at the VTA railyard and the Gilroy Garlic Festival — Peralez is hoping to help the community work through tragic events like these.Michael Rudometkin was one of nine VTA employees killed in that shooting. He was a close friend of Peralez.“Mass casualty incidents, active shooter incidents, they do generate a lot of public attention but when you look closer at gun violence you see some other trends emerging,” Peralez said.

Covid-19 vaccine boosters can begin for older, higher-risk people in the US
(CNN)Following days of lengthy debate among vaccine experts, booster shots of the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine can now be officially administered to some adults in the United States.Early Friday morning, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky diverged from the agency's independent vaccine advisers to recommend boosters for a broader group of people -- those ages 18 to 64 who are at increased risk of Covid-19 because of their workplaces or institutional settings -- in addition to older adults, long-term care facility residents and some people with underlying health conditions.The CDC recommendation includes the recommendations made by its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices on Thursday, when it voted to recommend boosters for people age 65 and older and residents of long-term care facilities who received the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine series at least 6 months ago, and people ages 50 to 64 with underlying medical conditions.

Taiwan says China is a 'bully' after one of the largest PLA warplane incursions yet
Taipei, Taiwan (CNN)Taiwan on Thursday accused China of "bullying" after Beijing sent a total of 24 warplanes into its air defense identification zone (ADIZ), the third-largest incursion in the past two years of heightened tensions between Beijing and Taipei.The People's Liberation Army (PLA) aircraft, including bombers, fighter jets, anti-submarine planes and airborne early warning and control planes, entered Taiwan's ADIZ in two groups -- one of 19 planes and a second cohort of five jets that came later in the day.A map released by Taiwan's Defense Ministry showed some Chinese aircraft, including H-6 bombers, flying around the southern part of Taiwan, and angling up to the island's east.In response, the ministry said radio warnings were issued and air defense missile systems were deployed to monitor the activity.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention late Thursday endorsed booster shots for millions of older and high-risk Americans, opening a major new phase in the U.S vaccination drive against COVID-19.CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky signed off on a series of recommendations from a panel of advisers hours after the advisers said boosters for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine should be offered to people 65 and older, nursing home residents and those ages 50 to 64 who have risky underlying health problems. The extra dose would be given once they are at least six months past their last Pfizer shot.But Walensky decided to make one recommendation that the panel had rejected.The panel on Thursday voted against saying that people can get a booster if they are 18 to 64 years of age, are healthcare workers or have another job that puts them at increased risk of being exposed to the virus.

Hand count in Arizona affirms Biden defeated Trump in 2020 election, audit draft report says
PHOENIX — A monthslong hand recount of the count in Arizona's largest county once again confirmed President Joe Biden won the 2020 election and the race was not “stolen” from former President Donald Trump, according to early versions of a report prepared for the Arizona Senate.The three-volume report by the Cyber Ninjas, the Senate’s lead contractor, that examined Maricopa County’s 2020 vote includes results that show Trump lost by a wider margin than the county’s official election results. The data in the report also confirms that U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly won in the county.The official results are set to be presented to the state Senate at 1 p.m. Friday. Several versions of the draft report, titled “Maricopa County Forensic Audit” by Cyber Ninjas, circulated prematurely on Wednesday and Thursday. Multiple versions were obtained by The Arizona Republic, part of the USA TODAY Network.

Taliban Official Says Strict Punishment And Executions Will Return
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — One of the founders of the Taliban and the chief enforcer of its harsh interpretation of Islamic law when they last ruled Afghanistan said the hard-line movement will once again carry out executions and amputations of hands, though perhaps not in public.In an interview with The Associated Press, Mullah Nooruddin Turabi dismissed outrage over the Taliban's executions in the past, which sometimes took place in front of crowds at a stadium, and he warned the world against interfering with Afghanistan's new rulers."Everyone criticized us for the punishments in the stadium, but we have never said anything about their laws and their punishments," Turabi told The Associated Press, speaking in Kabul. "No one will tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam and we will make our laws on the Quran."

Analysis: Sham Arizona 2020 review blows open Trump's election lies -- but he's trying again in Texas
(CNN)Donald Trump's effort to destroy confidence in America's elections suffered a serious setback late Thursday after a draft of the sham review ordered by Arizona Republicans confirmed that he had lost to President Joe Biden in the state's critical Maricopa County. But the ex-President's relentless campaign of lies took on new life as he prompted Texas to review its own vote counts.Details of the partisan report in Arizona emerged hours before GOP members of the state Senate were due to present the findings of an "audit" that Trump supporters believed would back up his false claims of fraud in a state he lost to Biden last November. But the chairman of the Maricopa Board of Supervisors -- which ran the election and rejected Trump's claims -- said the report proved the election results were sound.

Texas launches forensic audit of 2020 election results in 4 counties after Trump request
AUSTIN, Texas — Officials in the Texas secretary of state's office are conducting a "full and comprehensive forensic audit" of 2020 general election results in four of the state's largest counties: Dallas, Harris, Tarrant and Collin.The agency announced the audit late Thursday, hours after former President Donald Trump asked Gov. Greg Abbott to add an election audit bill to the agenda for the current special legislative session.A statement from the agency did not explain what prompted the need for an audit. State elections officials told lawmakers earlier this year that the 2020 election was "smooth and secure" and data shows that voter fraud is rare in the state.In his letter to Abbott, Trump repeated the same inaccurate claims about the 2020 general election results that he has advanced since he lost his reelection bid. He continues to falsely claim that the election was stolen from him, despite an investigation by his own Department of Justice that determined that there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud during the election.

Biden won Arizona in 2020, draft of report on GOP-ordered review shows
A lengthy hand recount of ballots conducted as part of the Arizona GOP-led Senate's review of Maricopa County's 2020 ballots and election equipment affirmed the results certified nearly 10 months ago: President Joe Biden won Arizona. That outcome appears in a draft copy of the report about the ballot review, which was obtained by CBS News Thursday night via a public records request with the Arizona Secretary of State's office.According to the draft, Mr. Biden's approximately 45,000-vote victory in the state's most populous county even expanded by a few hundred votes. The report surfaced less than 24 hours before the Arizona Senate is set to go over the report with the contractors, led by cybersecurity firm Cyber Ninjas, who were hired to conduct the review. Republican Arizona Senate President Karen Fann has not responded to a request for comment. An audit spokeswoman noted that more of the report will be released Friday. A separate audit spokesman told KJZZ, which posted similar documents of the draft report, that "it's not the final report, but it's close."

"It's not the final report, but it's close," he said.The draft report shows that the hand recount found that President Joe Biden received 99 more votes than Maricopa County had reported after November's election, while former President Donald Trump received 261 fewer votes than the county reported.

Pockets of low vaccine uptake remain in Europe
(CNN)Most European countries have Covid-19 vaccination rates that would be the envy of much of the world. But even here, hesitancy in certain areas is causing governments to take action -- or risk stalling their efforts to control the spread of the virus.The highly transmissible Delta variant and concerns that winter in the northern hemisphere could bring a bad flu season have increased the urgency for authorities to boost vaccine uptake.Reasons for hesitancy are varied. Some people believe they are fit, healthy and young, so getting vaccinated is not a priority. Some found it too complicated to book a vaccine so gave up. And some simply distrust their government to the extent that they've become susceptible to misinformation.

It's a perplexing spectacle that undoubtedly pleases most Republicans -- especially Trump supporters -- and leaves many Democrats increasingly anxious.While former President Donald Trump and his backers continue their dangerous maneuvers in an effort to retake power, Democrats in Congress are battling over the size of President Joe Biden's signature campaign promise, a major infrastructure plan, and somehow fighting like it's 1999.

Ex-Trump Attorney Asks Court to Reduce City's Bill for Election Fraud Cases
Sidney Powell, a former attorney for the re-election campaign of President Donald Trump, has asked a federal court to reduce the legal fees sought by the city of Detroit for contesting her bogus election fraud court cases.The city of Detroit is seeking $182,193.75 in attorneys' fees from Powell and her team for litigating a case alleging voter fraud during Michigan's 2020 presidential elections. The fraud case was dismissed, and Powell's appeal and subsequent petition to the U.S. Supreme Court were both denied.Now, Powell's legal representatives have asked a federal district court to reduce the city's sought-after fees to $21,964.75. The amount matches the amount sought by Michigan's Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson for legal fees associated with the same fraud cases filed by Powell and her team.

Sleeping Beauty's forest is dying
Reinhardswald, Germany (CNN)Gazing out from the rocky ledge of Sleeping Beauty's castle in central Germany, the countryside below stretches out in a patchwork of light and dark green forests before stopping dead. At the heart of this lush landscape sits a swath of dry, bare earth. The ground is empty, save for a few ghostly white trunks pointing skywards. Viewed up close, this scene in the Reinhardswald nature park is equally desolate. Brittle sticks crunch underfoot and tree stumps dot the empty landscape, which stretches over some 50 acres. The spruce trees that once stood here have been killed by a bark beetle infestation. The insects thrive in the warmer and drier weather conditions that occur more frequently because of climate change.

'It's deeply frustrating': Emmys producers react to Seth Rogen's COVID protocol jokes at show
If the Emmys were designed to transport viewers from the pandemic for a few carefree hours, Seth Rogen wasn't playing along. The comedic writer and actor, making the night's first awards presentation, questioned whether an event that touted its COVID-19 protocols was living up to its promises. Before presenting the award for best supporting actress in a comedy series to winner and "Ted Lasso" star Hannah Waddingham, Rogen offered up some jokes, but they sounded more like a complaint."They said this was outdoors. It's not. They lied to us. We're in a hermetically sealed tent right now. I would not have come to this," Rogen deadpanned to the audience gathered in what Emmys organizers described as "a fully air-conditioned tent (that) will allow for more socially-distanced audience seating."
