Varela/Miami Herald/Tribune News Service v Health officials in the U.S. are bracing ahead of an anticipated winter COVID-19 surge as cases rise in Europe. Previously, rising infections in America have trailed Europe, including last winter's omicron spread. Cases started trending upward in Europe around early September, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

In its most recent report, the ECDC said "widespread increases were being observed in all indicators."According to The Seattle Times, Washington state's King County Health Officer Dr. Jeff Duchin said in a news briefing that waning immunity, increasing gathering and a return to pre-COVID activity was leading to a surge in Europe. CALIFORNIA GOV.

NYU fires chemistry professor after students sign petition complaining that his class is too difficult

Why isn't Donald Trump in cuffs if AG's probe found potential crimes?
NEW YORK (AP) - New York's attorney general says her three-year investigation of former President Donald Trump uncovered potential crimes in the way he ran his real estate empire, including allegations of bank and insurance fraud.So why isn't Trump being prosecuted?Attorney General Letitia James didn't seek to slap handcuffs on the Republican this week, as some of his critics hoped. Instead, she announced a civil lawsuit seeking $250 million and his permanent banishment from doing business in the state.Like many things involving the law and Trump, the reasons James, a Democrat, opted for a lawsuit rather than a prosecution are complicated.For one, even if she did want to prosecute Trump, she doesn't have jurisdiction under state law to bring a criminal case against him or any of the lawsuit's other defendants, including the Trump Organization and his three eldest children, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump.In New York, the state attorney general's office is only allowed to prosecute a limited range of offenses on its own, like bid rigging and payroll violations.Otherwise, the office must partner with a county district attorney on a prosecution — as James' office did with the Manhattan district attorney's office in a case against Trump's longtime finance chief — or obtain what's known as a criminal referral from the governor or a state agency that has jurisdiction over the alleged wrongdoing.New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a lawsuit against former President Donald Trump and the Trump Organization alleging business fraud involving several assets, including properties in Manhattan, Chicago and Washington, D.C.

NY attorney general sues Donald Trump
Donald Trump (Official White House photo) NEW YORK - New York's attorney general is suing former President Donald Trump and his company, accusing business fraud involving some of their most prized assets, including properties in Manhattan, Chicago and Washington, D.C. The lawsuit, which follows a three-year civil investigation by Attorney General Letitia James, also names Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump — the former president's eldest children — as well as two longtime executives for the Trump Organization, former CFO Allen Weisselberg and Jeffrey McConney."Donald Trump falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself, and cheat the system, thereby cheating all of us," James said at the news conference.Her office has investigated what she said were the company's fraudulent or misleading valuations for its properties on annual financial statements that were given to potential business partners, banks or tax officials. The goal of the fraud was to burnish Trump's billionaire image and the value of his properties when doing so gave him an advantage, while playing down the value of assets at other times for tax purposes, the attorney general's office has said.Alina Habba, an attorney for Trump, said the lawsuit is "neither focused on the facts nor the law" but is about "advancing the Attorney General's political agenda.""It is abundantly clear that the Attorney General's Office has exceeded its statutory authority by prying into transactions where absolutely no wrongdoing has taken place," Habba said.
