“New York is 19 million people who start with the premise we can all live together in a very close area, right? And we’re going to respect each other’s space and add, we’re going to respect each other’s air — to respecting each other’s space, right? Look, it’s one thing if you don’t wear a mask and you’re walking down the sidewalk. You don’t wear a mask and you walk into a small retail store, and now you’re exposing people to you without a mask. You know, it’s almost you know, it’s a status symbol almost to not wear a mask.”

What policies could work? Although the number of police killings hasn’t fallen significantly on a national level since 2013, things have improved in some parts of the country, especially in cities. How did they do it? In particular, tighter restrictions on when and how police officers can use force — putting someone in a chokehold, for example, or shooting at a moving vehicle — appear to substantially reduce killings. After making such reforms in 2016, the San Francisco Police Department saw a 30 percent decline in the use of force by 2019, and, as of last May, had gone more than a year without a single officer shooting.

President Trump has appointed Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, to be a member of the Library of Congress Trust Fund Board, the White House announced Thursday. Ginni Thomas has long been active in conservative politics and her influence is closely monitored by critics on the left. In February, Axios reported that Trump allies -- Ginni Thomas being one of their leaders -- were assembling lists of officials they considered to be “disloyal” to the president. The report, based on anonymous sources, alleged that the memos circulated in the White House, produced by individuals that included a GOP Senate staffer and a group of conservative activists named "Groundswell," which is led by Ginni Thomas. WHITE HOUSE ALLIES COMPILE LIST OF 'DISLOYAL' OFFICIALS: REPORTAccording to Axios, Ginni Thomas at one point handed one of the memos produced by Groundswell directly to Trump, which included the names of several conservatives loyal to Trump that the group recommended that he hire for various positions, including former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke for a senior role in the Department of Homeland Security.

Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown speaks during a news conference on May 26 in Chicago. Charles Rex Arbogast/APChicago Police Superintendent David Brown said that he has addressed the George Floyd death in Minneapolis with his command officers and has required that they address the incident with the officers under their command. I have also required officers to view the video of this incident,” Brown said in a statement. “What took place in Minneapolis earlier this week is absolutely reprehensible and tarnishes the bade nationwide, including here in Chicago. “These actions are not reflective of the overwhelming amount of officers committed to constitutional policing nationwide.

London (CNN) Britain will begin lifting coronavirus restrictions starting Monday in a phased approach, the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said at a press conference today. While personal distancing remains in the cards , businesses, school and socializing are set to slowly be revived, he said, outlining new re-opening guidelines on how and where people should resume social contact. Up to six people will be allowed to meet outside "as long as they respect social distancing rules," in gardens and other private outdoor spaces, he said. However, people from different households should still not meet inside homes. From Monday, they will be permitted to meet outside, he said -- "provided those from different households continue strictly to observe social distancing rules by staying two metres apart."

Small cars have long held the reputation of being “death traps” and new data backs up the safety stereotype. A study of 2017 model year cars by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) found minicars to have the highest driver death rates of all vehicle types. It found that the average rate for all vehicles is 36 -- marking a 20 percent jump from the last time the study was conducted for 2014 models -- and 82 for all minicars, with four-door minicars at 108. The worst offender was the Ford Fiesta four-door at 141, followed by the Hyundai Accent four-door (116) and Chevrolet Sonic four-door (98). Seven vehicles -- including the GMC Yukon XL, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Volkswagen Golf – registered zero deaths during the reporting period.

Dr. Zubair said that she will always try to have the conversation, even with her patients who are deeply opposed to vaccinating their children. “Sometimes parents need to cultivate a relationship with me and it will take a couple of months for them to trust me and follow my suggestions,” she said. And even if the parents don’t change their minds, sometimes the kids decide for themselves. “I’ve had some kids, as they get older, say, ‘I want to do the vaccine.’”

New York Yankees relief pitcher Adam Ottavino thinks that the current stoppage in baseball due to the coronavirus pandemic is helping the Houston Astros, who were guilty of sign-stealing during the 2017 MLB season. Because of the coronavirus, the negotiations between the league and the players’ association have dominated the headlines, and people have quickly forgotten about the Astros, who are being let off the hook, according to Ottavino. BORAS TO CLIENTS IN MEMO: DON'T BAIL OUT BASEBALL OWNERS“I don’t think people are going to forget it, but I think it’s helping them because that was the story of spring training up until the virus,” Ottavino said Wednesday on “The No-Sports Report” podcast. “That was all day, every day. “So, to me, I think this is helping them, especially when they come back, there are definitely not going to be any fans in the stands,” Ottavino said.

At Stoke Mandeville she met Dr. Guttman, whom she regarded as both a stern taskmaster and an inspiration. She told him at one point that she was bored and frustrated. A tough disciplinarian, he told her to get a grip and look on the positive side — even though she would never walk again, he said, she could do many things with her life.

(CNN) Surveillance video from outside a Minneapolis restaurant appears to contradict police claims that George Floyd resisted arrest before an officer knelt on his neck. All four officers involved in the incident have been fired from the Minneapolis Police Department. Earlier this week, police said in a statement they were responding to an alleged forgery Monday evening and that Floyd "physically resisted officers." But surveillance footage from the nearby Dragon Wok restaurant shows the first point of contact between Floyd and officers. While there are several minutes where Floyd's interactions cannot be seen from the camera's vantage point, the footage does not appear to support the assertion that Floyd resisted arrest.

Peter Manfredonia, the University of the Connecticut student accused of killing two people before leading authorities on a six-day long manhunt in four states, appeared in a virtual bond hearing Thursday. Manfredonia, 23, waived extradition, surrendering himself to be taken back to Connecticut, WDVM reported. The suspect, currently at the Washington County Detention Center in Maryland, appeared via link on a screen in the Washington County District courtroom in Hagerstown, Md., adhering to new procedures to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Manfredonia represented himself at the bond hearing, but a public defender was on the call, Fox 61 reported.

The makeshift field hospital that the Army Corps of Engineers set up at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., to treat coronavirus patients has not seen a single one, officials told Fox News. TRUMP SAYS HE WILL EXTEND NATIONAL GUARD CORONAVIRUS HELP TO STATES THROUGH MID-APRIL"Our goal is to never have to use the convention center," D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said last month, before the field hospital opened. She noted that, in a "worst-case scenario," it would be available to treat as many as 500 patients.

The facility boasted 2,500 beds and was originally meant for non-coronavirus patients, but was later switched to treat people with COVID-19.

The Justice Department on Thursday filed charges against more than two dozen Chinese and North Korean individuals in an alleged scheme to divert more than $2.5 billion in illegal funds for North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. The Justice Department (DOJ) charged 28 North Koreans and five Chinese nationals -- some of whom were executives of North Korea’s state-owned bank, Foreign Trade Bank, which was sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department in 2013 and cut off from the U.S. financial system. One of the bank officials had previously served in North Korea’s primary intelligence bureau. Further, the Justice Department is accusing China of helping to facilitate the illegal banking transactions through government-controlled telecom companies. The U.S., according to the indictment, has seized nearly $63 million from the scheme since 2015.
