Black Voters Matter has embarked on what the national advocacy and policy group has christened a Freedom Ride for Voting Rights. Its goals, BVM co-founders LaTosha Brown and Cliff Albright note, are threefold: to amplify the need for federal voting rights legislation, build Black voting power, and advocate for Washington, D.C., statehood. People gather during the launch of the "Freedom Ride for Voting Rights" in Jackson, Miss., on June 19, 2021. Founded in 1869, the historically Black college became one of the epicenters of the civil rights movement. “Amen!”Barbara Arnwine, a lawyer, updated the crowd on voting rights legislation before Congress.

LONDON — The U.K. has one of the highest Covid-19 vaccination rates in the world, yet it's seeing a new surge in coronavirus cases largely attributed to the delta variant that first originated in India. Experts say that close attention is being paid to the latest data out of the U.K. as it could be a bellwether for others. And there is a fear that where the U.K. now treads, others — like the U.S. — could follow. "All eyes (are) on UK Covid trends," Kallum Pickering, senior economist and director at Berenberg Bank, said in a note Tuesday. Secondly, he noted that new hospital admissions had increased less than recorded infections — and by much less than during the winter wave.

The Parks Department and the city were free to make a terrible business decision. The essence of an at-will contract is that it’s terminable even for lousy, ill-advised reasons.

WASHINGTON — The Trump Organization is suing New York City over its decision earlier this year to cancel the company's contract to operate an 18-hole golf course in the Bronx borough with views of the Manhattan skyline. The lawsuit said that after the riot, de Blasio “denounced President Trump in the most inflammatory terms” and “characterized the Trump Organization as 'an organization led by a criminal.'" The Democratic mayor said that the city had a right to sever a contract with any company that is engaged in criminal activity. "Inciting an insurrection against the United States government clearly constitutes criminal activity," he said at the time on MSNBC. The filing defended the company's right to keep running the golf course by listing “accolades and top rankings from major publications,” including statements from several professional golfers, such as Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson.

The lawsuit, filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, says the contract was improperly terminated by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration.

Democratic candidate for New York City Mayor Maya Wiley campaigns with U.S. Representative Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) at the Co-op City housing complex in the Bronx borough of New York City, New York, U.S., June 7, 2021. Democratic registered voters outnumber Republican voters by more than a six-to-one ratio, state data shows. Voters also will choose from eight Democratic candidates seeking to replace Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., who is retiring. Final results are expected the week of July 12, after the deadline for voters to fix, or "cure," deficient ballots has passed. Yang encouraged his supporters to rank Garcia as their second choice; Garcia stopped short of doing so but offered praise for Yang's campaign.

It is New York’s first citywide experience with ranked-choice voting, in which voters can choose up to five candidates in many of the races on this year’s ballot.

The New York Police Department is increasing payments for crime tips as it seeks to end an increase in shootings and homicides, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday. The NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program would raise payments for anonymous tips to $3,500 from $2,500 to aid detectives in investigations, Mr. de Blasio said. The changes were announced after a violent weekend in the city in which the NYPD recorded 19 shootings and two homicides on Saturday and Sunday. A volunteer for Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams’ mayoral campaign was also stabbed on a sidewalk in the Bronx on Sunday. NYPD Chief of Department Rodney Harrison said at a press briefing Monday that the NYPD in 2020 received more than 1,000 tips under the Crime Stoppers program.

Food suppliers are hiking up trucker wages and food prices as they struggle to find drivers, per the NY Post. One New York company said it had to hire truckers from Alabama and put them up in hotels in the Bronx. Chefs' Warehouse told The Post that this was pushing up prices for oil, salt, and chocolate. One company told the Post that as well as boosting trucker salaries, it had raised the price of meat by 20% and chocolate by 30% to cope with its slim margins. A lack of truckers isn't the only thing pushing up food prices for consumers.

Mayor, Candidates Look to Lock In Votes A crowded field of Democratic contenders is crisscrossing the city in a race that is still very much up for grabs. Joshua Bryson, 55, said that he had not yet decided who to vote for but that he was considering Mr. Yang. In 2013, the last time there was an open election for mayor, New York City saw no candidate-specific super PACs. At least 14 individuals identified as billionaires by Forbes magazine have donated to mayoral-related super PACs. And three of the top six spenders on television, digital and radio advertising in the mayor’s race are super PACs.

Covid News: India’s ‘Black Fungus’ Crisis Spreads Brazil’s Covid death toll surpassed 500,000, behind only the United States and India. India’s ‘black fungus’ epidemic spreads in the wake of the Covid crisis. Doctors believe that India’s crowded hospitals, and their dire lack of medical oxygen, left the fungus an opening. Without enough oxygen, doctors in many places injected patients with steroids, a standard treatment for doctors battling Covid globally. Many scientists believe that the virus that caused the Covid-19 pandemic evolved in animals and jumped at some point to humans.

With tears welling up in her eyes, Azoug realized she was experiencing something she had not anticipated feeling after getting time away from her kids: separation anxiety. In most cases, parents' anxiety will be temporary as they get used to time apart from their kids again, psychologists say. She added that most will not have true separation anxiety disorder, which is characterized by excessive distress over leaving loved ones. Still, run-of-the-mill separation anxiety may be more intense than it was before the coronavirus upended our lives, Alvord said. "What helped me is to actually enjoy the newfound freedom," she said, adding that the separation anxiety did not last for long but that it was "very powerful."

New York City Poised to Ease Fines on Small Businesses Hit by Covid-19

The New York City Council is set to approve legislation Thursday that provides relief for small businesses, including easing code enforcement and slashing the cost of thousands of fines that mom-and-pop shops and restaurateurs were issued in the past eight years. The two-bill package to aid a business sector hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic has more than enough council support to be approved at Thursday’s meeting and eventually become law, city officials said. All other unpaid city code violations dating back eight years would qualify for a 25% discount. The new 90-day program will go into effect sometime in the new fiscal year beginning in July and can be extended another 90 days. City officials are expecting to collect up to $40 million in unpaid fines through the initiative.
