PHOENIX — Latinos are perpetually absent in major newsrooms, Hollywood films and other media industries where their portrayals — or lack thereof — could deeply impact how their fellow Americans view them, according to a government report released Tuesday. U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, has made the inclusion of Latinos in media a principal issue, imploring Hollywood studio directors, journalism leaders and book publishers to include their perspectives. Castro says the lack of accurate representation, especially in Hollywood, means at the very best that Americans don’t get a full understanding of Latinos and their contributions. That could engender violence against Latinos, like the killing of 23 people in El Paso in 2019 by a gunman who was targeting Hispanics. “American media, including print journalism, has relied on stereotypes of Latinos.

WASHINGTON — A federal law enforcement officer was arrested carrying a gun at Saturday’s rally at the U.S. Capitol billed to support the suspects charged in January’s riot but will not be prosecuted. He was arrested by Capitol Police for illegally possessing a gun on the grounds of the Capitol after people in the crowd reported seeing him with a handgun and notified nearby officers. Four people were arrested, including the Customs and Border Protection officer. Generally, under federal law, law enforcement officers are given reciprocity to legally carry their weapons in other states, even those with restrictive gun laws. Two law enforcement officials said the officer was not at the rally in any official capacity.

In addition to the felony hate crime charge, Alberto Friedmann is also charged with felony aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, according to court records from Cook County. The woman heard the man yell using a racial slur, “Move your f------ car,” court records said. But the driver continued yelling racial slurs and exited his car and approached the woman’s car, court documents state. The defendant told the woman he spat on her “because he doesn’t like Black people,” court records said. The man did strike the rear driver’s side bumper, and the driver’s-side door of the woman’s car, records said.

NEW DELHI — India, the world's largest vaccine producer, will resume exports and donations of surplus coronavirus vaccines in October after halting them during a devastating surge in domestic infections in April, the health minister said Monday. The halt in exports left many developing countries without adequate supplies and delayed vaccines for millions of people. Download the NBC News app for breaking news and politicsBefore halting exports, India donated or sold 66 million vaccine doses to nearly 100 countries. He said India's monthly coronavirus vaccine production has more than doubled since April and is expected to increase to 300 million doses in October.

Amid rising expectations of an Evergrande default, what would it look like? Image A map showing China Evergrande development projects across the country at a company development in Beijing on Tuesday. Both the company’s shares and its bonds fell on Tuesday, though by more modest amounts than in recent days and weeks. Its shares closed 0.4 percent lower, and shares of other Chinese-focused property developers that tumbled on Monday recovered some of their losses. (In the case of Evergrande, those include interests that include electric cars and a soccer team.)

He has called for Democrats to raise the debt ceiling on their own through a special budget process. Republicans supported raising the debt ceiling three times during the Trump administration. Yes, you've seen this movie before: President Joe Biden and McConnell played major parts in it too. Spurred on by the tea-party movement, Republicans sought to use raising the debt ceiling as a political cudgel against the Obama White House in 2011. Anxiety about congressional action over the debt ceiling didn't help matters either.

The coronavirus pandemic has now killed more Americans than the 1918-19 influenza pandemic did. The 1918-19 flu infected about 25% of Americans and killed an estimated 0.65%, with 675,000 deaths. COVID-19 has infected more than 12% of Americans and killed about 0.2%, with 676,000 deaths. So although the total number of Americans who died in each crisis is about the same, because of the population difference, influenza infected about one-quarter of Americans from 1918-19, and killed 0.65%. During the influenza pandemic, World War I contributed to the spread of the virus, killing healthy young people in mass quantities without the aid of modern medicine.

Psaki said Biden found the footage of Border Patrol agents whipping at Haitian migrants "horrific" and "horrible." The Biden administration has begun deporting thousands of Haitian migrants at the Texas border. The Biden administration began expelling thousands of Haitian migrants on flights back to their home country on Sunday, with more deportations to come, according to the The Associated Press. A growing number of congressional Democrats have condemned the actions of the Border Patrol agents and called on the Biden administration to halt ongoing deportations of Haitian migrants.

He pointed to Jeff Bezos' and Richard Bransons' flights into space as a sign of massive disparity between the rich and the poor. Bezos has faced criticism in the past for the over $5.5 billion he spent on his trip into outer space. Spokespeople from the billionaires' space companies, Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider. This summer Bezos and Branson each flew into outer space on their own private rockets. Though Musk has yet to go into space, he has also faced criticism for focusing some of his environmental efforts on outer space.

Live U.N. Live Updates: Biden Pledges to Work Toward ‘Peaceful, Prosperous Future For All’ Covid-19 and climate change are dominating the start of the General Assembly gathering. President Biden called for an era of international cooperation in tackling global threats in his first address to the United Nations General Assembly as president. “Our security, our prosperity and our very freedoms are interconnected, in my view as never before,” Mr. Biden said. The event is a major test of credibility for Mr. Biden, who was among the first to address the 193-member General Assembly. Many officials who had welcomed the election of President Biden — and his pledge that “America is back” — are now expressing concerns.

Covid has now killed about as many Americans as the Spanish Flu

Covid-19 has now killed about as many Americans as the 1918-19 Spanish flu pandemic did — approximately 675,000. “What’s important is whether the infections are severe.”Something similar happened with the H1N1 flu virus, the culprit in the 1918-19 pandemic. Before Covid-19, the 1918-19 flu was universally considered the worst pandemic disease in human history. In many ways, the 1918-19 flu — which was wrongly named Spanish flu because it first received widespread news coverage in Spain — was worse. So, will the current pandemic unseat the 1918-19 flu pandemic as the worst in human history?

Video of the group's speech on the United Nations’ official YouTube channel has been viewed more than 6 million times as of Monday afternoon. The group also unveiled a new music video for its current hit single “Permission to Dance,” which was filmed at U.N. Headquarters in New York. The singers crooned, “Don’t need to talk the talk, just walk the walk,” while dancing their way from the General Assembly hall to the garden overlooking the East River.

President Joe Biden on Monday recognized the 10-year anniversary of the end of "don't ask, don't tell," a policy that forced gay and lesbian military service members to hide their sexuality. Though an estimated 13,000 service members were discharged under "don't ask, don't tell," the total number of service members discharged due to their sexual orientation or gender identity is estimated to be much higher: More than 100,000 are thought to have been forced out between World War II, when the U.S. first explicitly banned gay service members, and 2011, when "don't ask, don't tell" officially ended. Senator, I supported allowing servicemembers to serve openly, and as Vice President, I was proud to champion the repeal of this policy and to stand beside President Obama as he signed the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act into law," the president said in Monday's statement. Biden added that he is honored to be commander in chief of the "most inclusive military in our nation's history," which he said welcomes LGBTQ service members. Biden appointed Pete Buttigieg — who served as a Navy Reserve lieutenant in Afghanistan under "don't ask, don't tell" — as transportation secretary, making him the first openly gay Cabinet member confirmed by the Senate.
