Later, State Police issued a one-page statement saying that troopers struggled with Greene during his arrest and that he died on the way to the hospital. John Bel Edwards down rebuffed repeated requests to release the body-camera video of Greene’s arrest. Greene can be heard apologizing to the officers, telling them he is scared and moaning and gasping for air. And like Greene, all the suspects were driving alone, were unarmed and didn’t appear to resist after troopers closed in. The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana on Wednesday called for a “top-to-bottom federal investigation” of the State Police.

Google and Facebook accounted for 54% of U.S. digital advertising revenue in 2020, according to eMarketer, a market research company. Under the Facebook Journalism Project, for instance, Reuters received funding to develop a digital media training course for journalists. Both Facebook and Google have made contributions to the news industry apart from the $600 million. Both Facebook and Google say publishers benefit just from using their platforms, which deliver traffic that helps drive advertising revenue and subscriptions. The Seattle Times publisher said his paper has participated in programs backed by Google and Facebook.

For full coverage of the coronavirus outbreakWhile the outbreaks inside nursing homes now are much smaller, less frequent and less severe than during the height of the pandemic, there continue to be hundreds of deaths each week attributed to the coronavirus. Three of the nursing home’s residents who contracted Covid-19 died, including two who were not vaccinated. So-called “breakthrough” infections among vaccinated individuals were also identified in nursing homes in Chicago, according to another recent CDC report.

Plant-based meat producers have also had to fend off the traditional agricultural industry as they fought their way into supermarkets and restaurants. To enhance flavor, plant-based meats are higher in sodium, with over 350 milligrams per serving, compared to 70 milligrams for beef. He estimated that plant-based meat makers need to get within 10 percent of the price of traditional beef to get really high market penetration. Plant-based meat makers also say their products use dramatically fewer resources and cause less pollution.

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration Justice Department secretly obtained the 2017 phone records of a CNN correspondent, the network said Thursday in revealing the existence of another apparent leak investigation aimed at identifying a journalist’s sources. The revelation comes two weeks after The Washington Post disclosed that the Justice Department had last year seized phone records belonging to three of its journalists who covered the Russia investigation. CNN said the Justice Department informed Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr in a May 13 letter that it had obtained phone and email records covering a two-month period between June 1 and July 31, 2017. “We are asking for an immediate meeting with the Justice Department for an explanation.”The Justice Department confirmed that the records were formally sought last year, though it did not reveal anything else about the investigation and what story might pertain to. “The records at issue relate to 2017 and the legal process to seek these records was approved in 2020,” Justice Department spokesman Anthony Coley said in a statement.

How Liberals Explain the Decision to Leave California

“The decision to under-invest in the public infrastructure that is particularly important to families raising children in California makes (living here) such a hard bargain,” Brown said. When it comes to education, California spends around 15% more per pupil than Georgia, according to 2018 data from the U.S. Census Department. Looking at overall state and local general expenditures, the left-leaning Tax Policy Center shows California spending exceeding that of Georgia by significantly more. Perhaps before departing Oakland the young couple should let their neighbors know about the better deal on government available in Georgia. Existing Georgia residents can only hope that the newcomers understand why the living is so much easier and more affordable than in California.

WASHINGTON, April 15 (Reuters) - Taiwan and Thailand risk joining Vietnam and Switzerland in running afoul of U.S. currency manipulation triggers in Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s first foreign exchange report, expected this week, but whether she applies that label is unclear. He added, however, that Yellen’s hands are “tied somewhat” by the criteria applied to deciding whether a trading partner manipulates its currency. The Treasury declined to comment on the contents of the forthcoming currency report, as did the SNB. “When other countries engage in unfair trade practices, including currency manipulation, Ohio workers pay the price,” Brown said in a statement to Reuters. Mark Sobel, another former Treasury official, said the latter is among complex issues that do not fit with a mechanical application of the currency manipulator criteria.

The emerging pattern: Americans in so-called “blue states” that lean Democratic appear to be getting vaccinated at more robust rates, while those in “red” Republican states seem to be more hesitant. Deeply red South Dakota ranks among the most successful states, with 54 percent of its population getting injections. If the issue gets resolved quickly and it's deemed safe to resume Johnson & Johnson shots, there should be little impact on public confidence, said Claire Hannan, executive director of the Association of Immunization Managers. In a suburb outside Chicago, Jennifer Rockwood was getting ready to drive an hour to get her Johnson & Johnson shot Tuesday morning when she heard about the recommended pause.

Another 26 patients eligible for Covid-19-related lung transplants and one eligible for a heart transplant remain on waiting lists, UNOS data show. So far, the rise in Covid-19-related transplants has not dramatically affected the existing waiting lists for organs. Most Covid-19-related transplants are performed on patients whose lungs have been irreversibly weakened by the disease. In many Covid-19 patients, damage isn’t limited to a single organ.

REUTERS/Joshua Roberts/Pool/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Democratic chair of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee has written to several large banks, including Credit Suisse and Japan’s Nomura, asking them for information on their relationship with New York-based Archegos Capital Management after the fund imploded last month. Senator Sherrod Brown asked the bank’s chiefs to detail how their institutions came to do business with Archegos, a family office run by ex-Tiger Asia manager Bill Hwang. Archegos’ soured leveraged bets on media stocks have left the fund and banks that financed its trades nursing billions of dollars in losses. Representatives of banks declined to comment or did not immediately respond to a request for comment. “I am troubled, but not surprised, by the news reports that Archegos entered into risky derivatives transactions facilitated by major investment banks,” Brown wrote in the letters.

But he did say the task force recommends what more Brown can do to address the legacy of slavery.
