With Senate at risk, Trump focuses on himself

  • As Republicans across the country walk on eggshells dealing with a President who demands unyielding loyalty despite a seemingly endless string of controversies, Trump is offering little accommodation for the political realities that will determine whether Republicans maintain control of the Senate next year.
  • McSally herself has been forced to strike a balance; while she is still courting Trump supporters, as evidenced by her appearance at his rally this week, she refused to say whether she was proud of him during a recent Senate debate with her Democratic challenger, former astronaut Mark Kelly.
  • After allowing McSally only 60 seconds of his rally, Trump invited several out-of-state Republicans to speak without any prescribed time limits, including Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy of California.

Netflix is increasing its most popular plan to $14 today, premium increasing to $18

  • Netflix is introducing price hikes for its US subscribers today, increasing its standard plan to $14 a month and its premium tier to $18 a month.
  • Greg Peters, Netflix’s chief operating officer and chief product officer, said that as the company invests more into both content and tech developments, they’ll “occasionally go back and ask [customers] to pay a little bit more to keep that virtuous cycle of investment and value creation going.” Although Netflix is not influenced by competitor pricing, according to a person familiar with the matter, its new standard price is just $1 less than HBO Max’s $15 a month charge — a fee that many analysts claimed was too high for consumers.

A top strategist says investors should stay in stocks hit hardest by the pandemic despite recent painful downturn

  • Lee said one reason he's comfortable sticking with epicenter stocks is that the recent surges of COVID-19 cases in the US are mostly in parts of the country that didn't experience the outbreak previously.
  • The strategist also said industries have high operating leverage that should continue to grow after the presidential election, and this will be bullish for stocks.
  • Twenty-six industries have recorded flat or negative revenue growth in the third quarter but reported positive Ebitda, said Lee. A risk to epicenter stocks will be significant business restrictions in the US, said Lee. But he added that closures of restaurants, for example, would unlikely lead to a broader stock selloff, as restaurant spending doesn't make up a large portion of US gross domestic product.

It's now too late to mail your 2020 ballot

  • Luckily, there are other alternatives including drop boxes, early polling places or old fashioned voting on Election Day at a polling place.
  • Kathy Boockvar, the secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, told CNN's Jake Tapper Tuesday that even though her state can count mail-in ballots received up until November 6 (three days after Election Day), she'd rather people just drop their ballots off.
  • There's usually also the option to vote early or on Election Day. Repeat: The mail-in window is about closed.
  • In states that allow the counting of ballots received after Election Day -- including the battleground states of Ohio, Iowa and Nevada -- it's still possible too use the postal system and be outside that seven-day recommended time period.
  • It is essential, if you mailed your ballot, to make sure it was received, either by tracking it online or calling your local election office.

Philadelphia shooting is just the latest case in a long history of mental health crisis calls that turned deadly in the US

  • In March, 41-year-old Daniel Prude was having a mental health episode when his brother called the Rochester Police Department for help, his family said.
  • Police Chief Art Acevedo said Chavez had been incapacitated by multiple Taser cartridges, bean bags and three gunshots before the four officers fired -- after he was down -- a total of 21 shots in the final moments of a 15-minute encounter.
  • Of the five people who called 911 that day, four told dispatchers Hall had mental health problems, according to recordings released by police late last June.
  • Before the 911 calls were made, his mother said, she had also been communicating with the police and told them he had mental health problems.
  • As a second officer prepared a Taser, the man "rapidly drew an object" and placed both hands on it "like you would be holding a firearm," Davis said.

This election is going to be up to women

  • The top candidates are two old White men, but there's a lot to suggest it's female voters who hold the key to this election, including that Trump keeps openly asking suburban women for their votes.
  • Kathy Boockvar, the secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, told CNN's Jake Tapper on Tuesday that even though Pennsylvania can count mail-in ballots received up until November 6 (three days after Election Day), she'd rather people just drop their ballots off.
  • Note: The Wall Street Journal tracked average delivery times for first-class mail in key states and found them at six days in nearly every state that requires ballots to be received by Election Day. New data.
  • It is essential, if you mailed your ballot, to make sure it was received, either by tracking it online or calling your local election office.

A cybercrime group is targeting US hospitals, federal agencies warn

  • Federal agencies warned hospitals, health care providers, and public health groups Wednesday that they were at risk of an “increased and imminent cybercrime threat” from ransomware, which could paralyze their computer systems and make it hard for them to deliver care.
  • At least four hospitals have reported cyberattacks this week, and hundreds more could be at risk.
  • This could be “the biggest attack we’ve ever seen,” Allan Liska, an intelligence analyst for the firm Recorded Future, told CNN.
  • They’re financially motivated, and “one of most brazen, heartless, and disruptive threat actors I’ve observed over my career,” Charles Carmakal, chief technical officer of the cybersecurity firm Mandiant, told Reuters.
  • Despite pledges from some cybercrime groups to avoid hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic, attacks have continued.
  • Universal Health Services, a chain of hundreds of hospitals across the US, was struck by a cyberattack last month.

Nice attack: Woman beheaded, police confirm, 2nd in France - Insider

  • A woman in Nice, France, was beheaded Thursday, one of three people killed by a knife-wielding attacker inside a church, the police said.
  • Christian Estrosi, the city's mayor, said on Twitter that the suspect had been arrested and that one of the people killed was the church's caretaker.
  • A source in French counterterrorism policing — who did not have permission to discuss the case publicly — told Insider the attacker shouted about cartoons before he attacked the victims at about 9 a.m. The reference to cartoons follows the October 16 beheading of a teacher in Paris who had shown his class images depicting the Prophet Muhammad.

Philadelphia under curfew as it awaits release of new details in man's fatal police shooting

  • Within "the next couple of days," Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said she intends to release the audio and a transcript, as well as the body camera footage from the officers who responded to Wallace's home.
  • Shaka Johnson, an attorney for Wallace's family, said relatives had made at least three calls to authorities that day.
  • Twenty-three officers were injured responding to protests and looting incidents overnight, Outlaw said.
  • Former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey told CNN's "New Day" the case is not as clear-cut as some other police shootings because Wallace was armed.

  • There are about 4,500 patrol officers on the Philadelphia police force and the department has 2,300 Tasers, Outlaw said in the news conference Wednesday.
