PARIS (Reuters) - Hundreds of black-clad protesters clashed with police at the end of a demonstration against police violence in Paris on Saturday after masked protesters launched fireworks at police lines, put up barricades and threw stones. The interior ministry said it had counted 46,000 protesters in Paris. Many protesters carried placards with slogans like “Who will protect us from the police”, “Stop police violence” and “Democracy bludgeoned”. I have spent two years with the yellow vests and I have seen all the violence,” demonstrator Caroline Schatz told Reuters at the Paris march. The yellow vests have been protesting against government policies for two years.

Republican lawmakers have been using congressional hearings as an opportunity to grill the CEOs of tech companies whose online platforms, they allege, discriminate against conservative content. Republicans typically use their time during the hearings to demand to know why tech platforms "censor" posts from President Donald Trump, intentionally silence voices on the right, and stifle free speech. These talking points have proven to be effective messaging for senators seeking election, as well as for expanding the Republican Party's reach online. Twitter and Facebook have been fielding accusations over anti-conservative bias for years now, after Republicans' criticism of the tech companies increased soon after Trump's election in 2016. And as the political climate grows more polarized, more platforms will emerge that run on lighter enforcement of online rules.

The United States topped 12 million cases of Covid-19 on Saturday, as the third wave's uncontrolled spread prompted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to urge Americans not to travel for Thanksgiving. The country recorded more than 200,000 coronavirus cases over the last 24 hours, bringing the total to 12,002,863, according to NBC News' tally. During a call on Thursday with reporters, Erin Sauber-Schatz with the CDC said that in the last week the United States had over a million new cases of Covid-19.

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are calling on President-elect Joe Biden to use executive power to advance goals such as tackling climate change, relieving student debt and creating a more progressive immigration system. "I think President Biden has significant executive power. "From Treasury to State to Interior (departments) and the financial regulators, climate action and climate risk management has to be infused into literally everything," he said. Even if Democrats capture both Georgia seats and take control of the Senate, McConnell would retain the power to filibuster legislation and force a 60-vote threshold. Jamal Brown, a spokesman for Biden's transition team, said his agenda will include executive power.

Nearly 200 legislators nationwide have tested positive for the virus and four have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began, according to figures compiled by The Associated Press. Twelve Arkansas lawmakers have tested positive for the virus over the past month, the second largest known outbreak in a state legislature. But legislative leaders acknowledged that individual legislators couldn't be forced to wear masks. An outbreak among Missouri state senators that postponed a special session focused on federal coronavirus aid hasn't spurred a requirement for lawmakers there to wear masks either. House Republicans in Ohio have also rejected efforts to require that lawmakers wear masks at the Statehouse, and a statewide mask mandate issued by GOP Gov.

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow made an impassioned plea on Thursday night live from her home after announcing her partner of 21 years, Susan Mikula, had fallen ill with the coronavirus. Calling Mikula the "center" of her life, the TV personality said her partner had been sick for the past few weeks, "and at one point, we really thought there was a possibility that it might kill her." "And the bottom line is that she’s going to be fine, she’s recovering, she’s still sick but she’s going to be OK."Maddow said she had continued to test negative for COVID-19 since Mikula's diagnosis. She added Thanksgiving "is going to suck" but it will "suck so much less than you or somebody in your family getting this and getting sick. "This thing is scary as hell and whatever you’ve been willing to do to risk getting it, don’t.

The Republican Senate leader told members in a closed-door lunch Tuesday to “be careful” and make sure they take the necessary precautions against catching the virus, Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., said. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., said McConnell wants everyone to go home, take a break, stay healthy and then they will determine when they’ll have enough healthy and present senators to be at “fighting strength” again. The Office of the Attending Physician has not replied to NBC’s repeated requests for comment. Signs around the Senate office buildings suggest mask usage. Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, said that the attending physician’s office has not changed its role during a pandemic.

Americans should avoid travel for Thanksgiving, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended Thursday. It was a last-minute attempt by the nation's leading public health agency to curb what's sure to be yet another dangerous spike in Covid-19 cases if families gather next week. It's a recommendation for the American public to consider," Dr. Henry Walke, the CDC's Covid-19 incident manager, said on the call. For Americans who do choose to travel, the CDC advised doing so as safely as possible, by following the same everyday recommendations from the agency, Walke said. Also Thursday, three major medical organizations published an open letter to Americans, citing the recent surge in Covid-19 cases to urge precautions for the holidays.

Dr. Henry Walke, CDC's Covid-19 incident manager, said there is "no more important time than now for each and every American to redouble our efforts to watch our distance, wash our hands and, most importantly, wear a mask." "CDC is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving period," he said. "For Americans who decide to travel, CDC recommends doing so as safely as possible by following the same recommendations for everyday living." "We're alarmed," he said, adding that the country has seen an "exponential increase" in cases, hospitalizations and deaths recently.

news briefing in months, arrived as many Americans were packing their bags for one of the most heavily traveled weeks of the year. It is the first time that the agency has warned people away from traditional holiday celebrations. “The safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving this year is at home with members of your household,” said Erin Sauber-Schatz, who leads the agency’s community intervention and critical population task force. She urged Americans to reassess plans for the coming week. The C.D.C.’s warning runs counter to messages from administration officials, who have denounced concerns that Thanksgiving celebrations will speed the virus’s spread.

(CNN) The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that Americans should not travel for Thanksgiving, and has posted updated guidelines for safely celebrating the holiday. "CDC is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving Day period," Dr. Henry Walke, Covid-19 incident manager for the CDC, told reporters in a conference call. Safer gatherings can be held outside as much as possible, the CDC recommends. People who do travel should wear masks, keep their distance from others and wash their hands or use hand sanitizer frequently, the CDC said.

As President-elect Joe Biden prepares to assemble the key players in his upcoming administration, Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard has been floated as a possible Treasury Secretary. She would be the first woman to lead the Treasury Department, if chosen and confirmed by the Senate. Brainard’s career includes an earlier stint at the Treasury, to which she was confirmed with bipartisan Senate support in 2010 on a 78-19 vote. After leaving the Treasury in late 2013, she moved to the Fed, also with bipartisan backing — she was confirmed in June 2014 by a 61-31 vote. "The Biden administration will look for centrist candidates on key economic and financial posts."

For many, the testimony of Big Tech CEOs may evoke a similar feeling. There will be no damning self-incrimination on camera that leads to a dramatic and wholesale reversal of fortunes for Big Tech. Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn asked Google CEO Sundar Pichai if an employee who had criticized her had been fired. Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson read out a tweet that had identified itself as satire and had falsely claimed Johnson had strangled a dog. "Republicans can and should join us in addressing the real problems posed by Big Tech," Markey said.
