How Will The City Enforce The Homeless Levee Ban?

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — In 29 days Sacramento will start clearing homeless camps from sections of levees and other parts of town. The law is a move that businesses fear could drive homeless communities off the levees and on to city streets. Now city leaders are scrambling to find out how they can push this camping ban through, and enforce it, without breaking the law. William Mercer has lived along the levee for 10 years. He says it’s the only place he’s really called home. Now, he says he’ll have ...

Keith Block may have been the co-CEO of Salesforce, but he never got paid as much as fellow CEO Marc Benioff (CRM)

Keith's Block exit from Salesforce, 18 months after he was promoted to co-CEO, was a shocker.  Marc Benioff even wrote about his decision to promote Block to co-CEO in his recently released book "Trailblazer," saying he needed a partner who reported to the board and not to him. But in practice, Benioff still held the power in the company, and remains chairman of the board. And one indication of the unequal power can be seen in the pay between the two executives: While Block received a handsome...

Mike Zimmer loves Anthony Harris, but says safety isn’t most important position on D

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said on Wednesday that he expects defensive end Everson Griffen to return to the team for the 2020 season, but it doesn't sound like he has the same outlook for safety Anthony Harris. Harris is set for unrestricted free agency after starting 14 games and leading the league in interceptions last season. Zimmer said he appreciated the way the five-year vet handled the job, but it sounds like paying Harris ranks somewhere down the list of priorities in Minnesota ...

(WASHINGTON) — Sixty-five years after 14-year-old Emmett Till was lynched in Mississippi, Congress has approved legislation designating lynching as a hate crime under federal law. The bill, introduced by Illinois Rep. Bobby Rush and named after Till, comes 120 years after Congress first considered anti-lynching legislation and after dozens of similar efforts were defeated.

Some of the World's Biggest Economies Are on the Brink of Recession

Markets closed out last week on an anxious note. It's not difficult to see why: the coronavirus continues to spread, and there are signs that some of the world's top economies could slide into recession as the outbreak compounds pre-existing weaknesses. From a report: Take Japan: The world's third-largest economy shrank 1.6% in the fourth quarter of 2019 as the country absorbed the effects of a sales tax hike and a powerful typhoon.

Why can’t California create viable national leaders anymore?

Once upon a time, Hollywood and California seemed to be leading the country, for better or worse, with outsized public figures and sometimes compelling, or at least entertaining, ideas. California politicians like Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan achieved national power, establishing the primary strands of conservative thought. California’s liberals were less successful, but at least they were influential. Jerry Brown never made it to the White House — he would have been our first Zen president —...

How Elizabeth Warren's Camp Is Seeking to Regain the Spotlight

RENO, Nev. -- A bad month for Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts keeps getting worse. She finished in a respectable third place in the Iowa caucuses, but a results-tallying meltdown muddled what could have been a good evening. New Hampshire was better at logistics but worse for her candidacy, considering she ended up closer to candidates who dropped out after the primary than those who finished on top.On Sunday, Warren had a cold so severe it threatened to sideline one of the country's m...

How’s the March 3 primary working out?

The more or less official rationale offered by the state’s Democratic politicians for moving our presidential primary election to March 3 was that the nation’s most populous and diverse state should play a major role in choosing a challenger to President Donald Trump and compel candidates to pay attention to our issues. They implied that making the state relevant in presidential politics was worth forcing earlier-than-usual decisions on down-ballot issues, including contests for 153 legislative ...

How different generations are influencing our politics

Race, gender and class may be shaping our society, but increasingly generational change drives our politics. Over time this suggests a major realignment of America’s party system that could create either whole new parties or transform the current, and failing, political duopoly. One must look just at the results in New Hampshire. Bernie Sanders won by winning roughly half of voters under 30, according to exit polls, almost twice the percentage he gained among the rest of the electorate. In contr...
