What Jones didn’t realize at the time was that his son had been identified as a target by the Pasco Sheriff’s Office's “intelligence-led” policing program. Bob Croslin / for NBC NewsThe sheriff’s office disputed the idea that its intelligence-led policing was “predictive policing” in the sense characterized by the science fiction movie "Minority Report," where people are arrested by a police department’s "pre-crime" division before they have the chance to carry out illegal deeds. A spokesman said Bobby had interacted with the sheriff’s office three times before they showed up at the family home in September 2015. It called for the immediate termination of “the student data-sharing arrangement for any collaboration, involvement, or participation in school-based predictive policing” operated by the sheriff’s office. National problemSchool districts and law enforcement officials nationwide are struggling with similar problems.

GOP Senators introduced a $928 billion counteroffer to Biden's $2.25 trillion infrastructure plan. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said their plan is not a "serious" offer and leaves out women. A group of Republican senators unveiled their $928 billion counterproposal to President Joe Biden's infrastructure plan, increasing the price tag from their first $568 billion counteroffer. "I don't really think this is a serious counteroffer," Warren told MSNBC following the release of the plan. —Stephanie Ruhle Reports (@RuhleOnMSNBC) May 27, 2021The past few weeks in the White House have been filled with Oval Office meetings attempting to get Republicans on board with Biden's $4 trillion infrastructure plan.

Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., from his leadership team for her outspoken criticism of Trump. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, whose support is essential no matter what path the White House pursues. "What the president brings to this job is there's no one who knows how to do these kinds of conversations and negotiations better than President Biden," she said.

WASHINGTON — The White House urged Americans not to hoard gas Tuesday as the Colonial Pipeline, a major supplier of fuel to the Southeast, remained largely shut down for a fifth day following a ransomware attack by hackers on Friday. A small but increasing number of gas stations along the East Coast reported fuel shortages Tuesday, with six states estimated to have gas station outages. In metro Atlanta, roughly 40 percent of gas stations were out of fuel; 37 percent in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; more than 50 percent of metro Raleigh, North Carolina; and more than 60 percent of stations in Wilmington, North Carolina. Colonial Pipeline is expected to make a decision by the end of Wednesday on whether to fully restart the pipeline, Granholm said. The Biden administration has looked for alternate ways to deliver fuel to the impacted areas in order to avoid supply shortages.

"While certainly would have preferred a W, I send my heartfelt congratulations to @glennyoungkin on a tremendous race + deserved win.

The debate is often framed as between “people” (policies to help individuals affected by economic change) and “places” (policies aimed at communities that are languishing). Federal policy in recent decades has arguably reinforced the disparity. Nearly half of federal research and development spending in 2018 went to five states — California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York and Virginia — and Washington, D.C., according to analysis of federal data by Brookings. The Biden administration’s American Jobs Plan incorporates ideas from the bipartisan “Endless Frontier Act,” which, among other things, seeks to spend billions to create regional innovation hubs. It is home to the University of Nebraska, which has strong programs in computer science and engineering, and it has a vibrant agribusiness sector.

Rep. Liz Cheney is in a familiar place: A whole bunch of her fellow Republicans are mad at her. Former VP Dick Cheney watches his daughter Liz Cheney take the oath of office after her election to the House of Representatives in 2017. A decade before she publicly dismissed QAnon and its adherents, Liz Cheney failed to condemn the racist and false "birther" conspiracy theory. But about a decade later, during the 2013 Senate primary, Liz Cheney showed she was willing to go against not only her party but also her family. So far, Liz Cheney appears to have emerged from the tangle with her own caucus intact and stronger.

The fastest-growing states will add new seats, while those that are shrinking or growing slower than the national average will lose them. The results released on Monday show that seven states will lose seats while six will gain. At the same time, the big states of the Midwest and Northeast that historically have backed Democrats will lose congressional seats and the electoral votes that come with them.

Democrats have a limited window of opportunity to pass landmark voting rights legislation before losing their majorities. If HR 1 (the For The People Act) and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act don't become law, Georgia's anti-voting law will become just one of many. Among other things, the bill would establish automatic voter registration, in which citizens are automatically registered on their state's voter rolls when getting state-issued driver's licenses and ID cards. The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which was introduced in the Senate in the 116th Congress, is the perfect companion to HR 1. Democrats will have to decide relatively soon whether they'd rather keep a Jim Crow relic like the filibuster, or have new federal voting rights legislation.

One of the things most people don’t appreciate is that white overrepresentation among voters is driven almost entirely by white college voters. The growing educational divide among white voters — with Biden viewed much more favorably by white college voters — potentially blunts some of those midterm dynamics I described. I asked Griffin what the prospects are for Biden to build a stronger and more durable Democratic coalition. He is doubtful:If you had to pick one group that would do the most to solidify the democratic coalition electorally, it would be white non-college voters. Given the long-term trends away from the Democratic Party among these voters, even holding onto his 2020 margins would likely represent an achievement.

An ideal infrastructure plan would spend $10 trillion, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said. A larger plan could create tens of millions of jobs and vastly improve housing and health care, she said. For Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the administration's $2 trillion infrastructure plan isn't big enough. The president unveiled the American Jobs Plan on Wednesday as a follow-up to the $1.9 trillion stimulus approved in March. To be sure, the American Jobs Plan is only half of Biden's latest spending push.

Biden Administration Announces a Major Offshore Wind Plan
  + stars: | 2021-03-29 | by ( Lisa Friedman | Brad Plumer | ) www.nytimes.com + 0.00   time to read: +2 min
One of the earliest offshore wind proposals, Cape Wind, famously died after objections from wealthy residents in Cape Cod who considered it an eyesore blighting their coastal views. These Eastern states have set aggressive goals to get more electricity from renewable sources such as wind and solar to help address climate change. But they don’t get nearly as much sunshine as states like California, and it’s often difficult to find space for wind turbines onshore. That makes offshore wind attractive: While the technology is still more expensive, costs have been falling in Europe. Separately, the ocean management bureau said it would prepare an environmental review of a 1,100 megawatt offshore wind farm proposed to be developed about 15 miles off the coast of Atlantic City, N.J., which has a goal of developing 7,500 megawatts of offshore wind energy by 2035.

DEA / M. BORCHI | De Agostini | Getty ImagesStates have tried clawing back unemployment benefits from thousands of people during the Covid pandemic. Waiving PUA overpaymentsThe $900 billion federal relief package passed last month gives states the power to waive these overpayments, made through the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, in certain cases. But the law doesn't require states to offer this safety valve — leading to concern that some may choose not to. Most states do waive overpayments made through their traditional unemployment insurance programs. The state legislature would need to amend state law to do so, she said.

The pharmacy chains said they would be ready to give shots at long-term care facilities within 48 hours of receiving Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine. Cohen said she expects the pharmacies to begin vaccinating long-term care facilities in the second week of the vaccine rollout, once the Moderna vaccine is authorized. Others may opt to vaccinate long-term care settings right away. Those hubs were chosen because of their proximity to the long-term care facilities that CVS will visit. Similarly, Walgreens will have vaccines shipped to certain stores that will then take the vaccine to long-term care facilities.

Terry McAuliffe, the former governor of Virginia, on Wednesday entered the contest for his old job, simultaneously offering himself as both a trusted steward during an economic and public health crisis and someone prepared to fight against “the old way of doing things.”“I am running for governor again to think big and to be bold and to take the Commonwealth of Virginia to the next level and to lift up all Virginians,” Mr. McAuliffe said in a brief speech outside a public school in Richmond, the state capital. Mr. McAuliffe, 63, formally began his campaign surrounded by four senior elected officials, all of whom are Black. The setup was a nod both to the relationships he nurtured during his governorship from 2014 to 2018 and the complex nature of the state’s 2021 primary, in which three Black candidates have already announced their candidacies for the Democratic nomination. Mr. McAuliffe’s 2021 campaign has for months been an open secret in Virginia — at a March campaign rally, Joseph R. Biden Jr. called him “the once and future governor” — and Mr. McAuliffe’s allies have made the case that his coalition would look a lot like Mr. Biden’s, with core support from Black voters and suburbanites who sent Mr. Biden to the White House.

The Navy got some bad press recently when a sailor shared images of disgusting food from aboard the carrier USS Nimitz. But aboard the newest carrier, USS Gerald R. Ford, which entered service more than 40 years after Nimitz, the Navy has taken a number of measures to ensure sailors' mess is better than it's ever been. While a Navy official came to the Nimitz's defense, pointing out it had been recognized for the best carrier food service in the fleet this year, an array of measures are being taken on the next class of carrier to ensure sailors' mess is better than it's ever been. While the ships have the same footprint, space all over the Ford has been reimagined to make carrier life and work better and more efficient.

The Arecibo Observatory's iconic 1,000-foot radio telescope has been damaged beyond repair after two destructive cable breaks. Now engineers are racing to figure out how to safely deconstruct one of the world's largest radio telescopes before it collapses on itself. By moving quickly, the NSF hopes to salvage a set of buildings that lay directly below one of the telescope's towers. 'We're working against the clock'It will likely take about five or six weeks to figure out how to safely deconstruct the Arecibo telescope. If engineers can take apart the telescope before it destroys itself, the Arecibo Observatory will still be able to conduct some scientific research.
