A group of homeless families is suing the city over the de Blasio administration’s plan to install Wi-Fi in family homeless shelters across New York, arguing the plan won’t get students internet fast enough, the Daily News has learned. The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan Federal Court, calls for a judge to force the city to get Wi-Fi in all family shelters across the city no later than Jan. 4, 2021—the first day of school after winter break. “My son still struggles with completing his classes.(Snip) “I’m frustrated that the mayor isn’t doing something faster because my son is suffering,”

The wifi vendor will gain from this, as will whoever is lined up to provide "free" computers when the complaint shifts to The Homeless not having the best equipment. Someone's always standing by to profit from social ills that should not exist to begin with, with lawyers circling overhead for their cut.

They can't afford an internet connection, but they can afford lawyers? Methinks this is another case of ambulance chasing shysters looking for a Class Action Suit big payoff, ultimately from the rapidly shrinking taxpayer base.

Certainly the kids need fast WiFi for their schoolwork. Sure. And more important than that, moms' current boyfriend needs fast access to the porn sites.

When Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace developed the concept of a computer they had no way of knowing one of the top applications of such a device was porn. I have to pay for my WiFi. Why do they get it "free?"

Ellen Page is transgender and will now go by the name Elliot Page, he announced on social media Tuesday. “I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life,” he wrote. “I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey. I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self.” Page, 33, said he will use he/they pronouns.(Snip) Page admitted he was “scared” to come out as trans given the “invasiveness, the hate, the ‘jokes’ and of violence.”

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan plans to sign a new city budget that will reduce the police budget by 18% despite homicides reaching record highs not seen in a decade. Council members overwhelmingly voted last week to cut funds for police training and overtime and to eliminate dozens of vacant positions within the Seattle Police Department after months of contentious talks. The reductions fall short of the 50% that local activists demanded amid nationwide protests against police brutality and racial injustice. The council also decided to transfer parking enforcement officers, mental health workers and 911 dispatchers out of the police department.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and chief Medaria Arradondo on Monday rebuffed a proposal by three City Council members to cut the Minneapolis police budget by nearly $8 million, with Frey calling the plan "irresponsible and untenable" amid a year of rising violent crime and a shrinking police force. Although both said they support some community alternatives and reforms in policing, they said it cannot come at the cost of further cuts to the department already facing historic attrition rates—the force is down 120 officers since the start of the year, with more likely to depart.

The IRS now acknowledges that its own error caused some citizens of other countries to mistakenly receive $1,200 coronavirus relief payments—and that the mistake is likely to happen again if more stimulus money goes out. When reports of the mistake first surfaced, the U.S government placed the blame on those non-Americans, saying that many noncitizens erroneously received stimulus checks because they had filed incorrect tax returns that made them appear to be American. But many non-Americans who received stimulus money do not file U.S. tax returns.(Snip) Kelleher said Sprintax has clients from about 150 countries who mistakenly received stimulus checks,

Several GOP state lawmakers have filed 12 articles of impeachment against Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, over their fellow Republican’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. The articles, which were filed by Rep. John Becker, accuse Mr. DeWine of numerous abuses of power in the past several months, including threats to veto a bill to limit the governor’s emergency powers. “Governor DeWine‘s mismanagement, malfeasance, misfeasance, abuse of power, and other crimes include, but are not limited to, meddling in the conduct of a presidential primary election, arbitrarily closing and placing curfews on certain businesses, while allowing other businesses to remain open.

A state board certified Iowa Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks as the representative-elect of Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District Monday in a race that came down to just six votes—the closest federal election in the country this year. Though Democrat Rita Hart is likely to challenge the results in court, the action marks the end of weeks of recounts that showed a steadily narrowing race. On election night, Miller-Meeks led by 282 votes. Shortly after Monday's board vote, Miller-Meeks thanked her supporters. “I will never quit fighting for you and your opportunity at the American Dream!” she tweeted. “Let’s get to work!”

An ex-prostitute who was busted in a police sting is running to become the first trans woman on the City Council—representing the heart of the Bronx. Elisa Crespo, 30, is one of the candidates seeking to succeed outgoing Councilman Ritchie Torres in the 15th council district—representing Belmont, Fordham, Tremont, Mount Hope, Allerton, Van Nest, West Farms, and Bedford Park. Torres—the first openly gay person to get elected in the borough—is vacating the seat in January after getting elected to Congress. A special election to replace him is expected to take place in March. Crespo's candidacy is a remarkable comeback story.

The Navy has decided to scrap an amphibious assault ship that was heavily damaged in a devastating July fire that raged for nearly a week as the ship was docked in San Diego. The decision to decommission the U.S.S. Bonhomme Richard was made because restoring the Wasp-class ship would cost more than $3 billion and take 5-to-7 years to complete, Navy officials said Monday. According to published reports, dismantling the ship would cost about $30 million. (Snip) The fire broke out in mid-July while the ship was undergoing repairs.

For Elaine Hristov and her family, the closing of the Nabisco Factory in Fair Lawn wouldn’t just mean another business shuttered amid the coronavirus pandemic: it would be the close of a chapter in their family history. For a combined nearly 40 years, Hristov’s grandfather and mother worked in the iconic cookie plant overlooking Route 208, part of Mondelez International, Inc. Last week, it was announced that the Fair Lawn plant, open since 1958, may close for good by mid-2021.(Snip) Fair Lawn Mayor Kurt Peluso and U.S. Rep.

Clueless Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday dismissed the fact that the city incredibly failed to pick up on Hasidic wedding attended by thousands amid COVID-19 this month—scoffing to a reporter, “It’s a big city.” De Blasio spouted the tone-deaf brush-off even after he acknowledged just how dangerous the Nov. 8 Brooklyn wedding was by announcing late Monday that the city would slap the involved synagogue with a $15,000 fine for breaking coronavirus safety regulations. In crowing about the fine, de Blasio told NY1 of the dangerous gathering, “That’s just not acceptable, I mean, we’ve been through so much.

An eight-mile wall of prehistoric rock art featuring animals and humans has been discovered in the Amazonian rainforest after it was created up to 12,500 years ago. The historical artwork, which is now being called the 'Sistine Chapel of the ancients', was uncovered on cliff faces last year in the Chiribiquete National Park, Columbia, by a British-Columbian team of archaeologists funded by the European Research Council. The date of the paintings has been based on the portrayal of extinct animals from the ice age such as the mastodon - a prehistoric relative of the elephant which hasn't been seen in South America for at least 12,000 years.

Sean Hannity urged President Donald Trump to issue blanket pardons for both himself and all of his family members before he leaves office in January, to protect them over any possible crimes that they committed during his four years in the Oval Office. On the Monday edition of his radio show, Hannity complained to pro-Trump lawyer and election fraud conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell that the incoming Biden administration was being publicly encouraged to investigate and prosecute Trump for any criminal misconduct while he was president. Six months ago, notably, Hannity offered his own vocal endorsement of Trump investigating his White House predecessor during an interview with Mediaite.

It might be called a metaphor -- Joe Biden getting off to his purported presidency -- on the wrong, or broken, foot. Which might explain why Biden didn't want to let the news get out. Biden blocked reporters from taking pictures of him and his broken foot, something he claims to have sprained with hairline fractures while playing with his dog named 'Major.' According to RedState, which has an excellent curation of various reporter tweets, Biden attempted to hide from press scrutiny of his condition, this time by refusing to allow reporters to get off the bus.
