Don Lemon Bursts Into Tears While Discussing Friend & Co-Worker Chris Cuomo's Coronavirus Diagnosis
CNN anchor Don Lemon got emotional Tuesday night while talking with his friend and fellow news anchor Chris Cuomo, who has tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
After discussing what people can do if they cannot pay their mortgages or rents with colleague Bianna Golodryga on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, the host started to tear up.
“I said I wasn’t going to do this,” Lemon, 54, said wiping away tears with a tissue.
“He’s probably at home laughing at me,” the host joked before explaining how close he is with his colleague.
“Chris and I are really good friends, we live near each other,” adding, “anyway, he’s not here, and we have this great relationship.”

Group Behind NYC Central Park Tent Hospital Makes Workers Adhere to ‘Statement of Faith’ That Says Gays Will Burn in Hell
Samaritan’s Purse, the group funding and erecting the makeshift coronavirus tent hospital in New York City’s Central Park, makes all workers, including health care providers, “read and adhere” to a statement of faith that says gay people will burn in Hell. Samaritan’s Purse is run by “Christian” homophobe Franklin Graham.
Gothamist reports: “Graham, the son of prominent minister Billy Graham, has specifically sought to recruit Christian medical staff to the Central Park facility. According to the group’s website, all volunteers, including health care workers, should read and adhere to a statement of faith, in which marriage is defined as ‘exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female’ and the unrighteous are sentenced to ‘everlasting punishment in hell.'”

Parents Say School Expelled Elementary Students After Raising Coronavirus Concerns
As the second full week of school closures comes to an end, many Bay Area parents are anxiously waiting to hear that it’s safe for their kids to return to class. But for a group of parents in the South Bay, their kids still won’t be allowed back on campus when classrooms reopen after administrators decided to withdraw their children from school in a move that left parents stunned.
The school’s decision comes after a series of critical Facebook comments from parents questioning the school’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“I was devastated,” a parent told NBC Bay Area when she learned her child is no longer enrolled. “I feel the school is just retaliating against us.”

Entire senior home in New Jersey, 94 people, presumed to have coronavirus
An entire New Jersey nursing home is presumed to be infected with coronavirus, forcing everyone from the facility to be evacuated on Wednesday, officials said.
At least 24 of 94 residents and patients of St. Joseph’s Senior Home in Woodbridge, about 20 miles south of Newark, have tested positive for coronavirus and the other 70 clients are also believed to have the virus, authorities said.
The first positive came back on March 17 and at least one positive test has come back "everyday thereafter," said John Hagerty, a spokesman for the city of Woodbridge.
Most renters won't receive protections under Trump proposal
NEW YORK (AP) — Most Americans who rent their home, many of whom have lost their jobs in the sudden economic slowdown caused by the coronavirus outbreak, will not be eligible for eviction protections, despite what President Donald Trump said this week.
Under the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s plan released Wednesday, foreclosures and evictions would stop for 60 days on single-family homes with loans through the Federal Housing Administration. That would apply to roughly 8 million units, according to HUD. Only FHA homes lived in for at least a year can be rented out.
That’s compared with the roughly 43 million households who rented in 2019, according to the U.S. Census. Roughly half of renters rent their home from an individual investor, while the other half rent from a business or multi-unit property owner. The ones renting from a business will not receive any protections according to HUD’s proposal.
"That’s the problem with (HUD's proposal). It only impacts a very small amount of people. We need big-scale solutions," said Andrea Shapiro of the Metropolitan Council on Housing, a New York-based housing advocacy organization.
The Best Cities For LGBTQ Retirees
When it comes to choosing a place to live during retirement, LGBTQ people want the same things that everyone else wants — safety, reasonable prices, agreeable climate, cultural and recreational amenities and good health care. However, LGBTQ people have a few additional factors to consider.
Those include how tolerant an area is, the presence of a gay community, and health care providers that are welcoming towards LGBTQ people. In addition to considerations such as low cost of living and low taxes, LGBTQ people tend to value cities with strong LGBTQ communities, higher levels of acceptance and the presence of non-discrimination laws.
Cities famous for their prominent LGBTQ communities, such as New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. are also very expensive, though.
Two trans women beat the snot out of men harassing them in a restaurant
After being harassed by men in a restaurant, two transgender women decided they had dealt with enough and took matters into their own hands. Those hands formed fists after the men continued to denigrate the women, leaving the two harassers bloody and dazed.
The incident began when a male customer slides into the women’s booth and mocks one of them, saying in Spanish, “I’d like to sit with a lady.” After the women push him away, he and another customer continue the verbal abuse.

So Long, California? Goodbye, Texas? Taxpayers Decide Some States Aren’t Worth It
Two years after President Trump signed the tax law, its effects are rippling through local economies and housing markets, pushing some people to move from high-tax states where they have long lived. Parts of Florida, for example, are getting an influx of buyers from states such as New York, New Jersey and Illinois.
Many people saw their overall taxes go down after the 2017 law was passed. But the law had two main changes making it tougher to live in high-cost, high-tax states, especially compared with lower-taxed options. It essentially curbed how much homeowners can subtract from their federal taxes for paying local property and income taxes, by capping the state and local tax deduction at $10,000. It also lowered the size of mortgages for which new buyers can deduct the interest, to $750,000 from $1 million.
These changes have the biggest impact on a sliver of the population who have high incomes and live in expensive areas. They tend to have white-collar jobs and the ability to pick up and move. Many own their own businesses, work remotely or are nearing retirement.
Critics say the changes have hurt everyone who lives in high-tax states, by taking a bite out of tax revenue. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, for example, panned the state and local tax cap last year. “It has redistributed wealth in this nation from Democratic states—we’re also called blue states—to red states,” he said at the time.

A Black Man Ended Up Handcuffed in His Underwear After His Burglar Alarm Went Off
Police in Raleigh, North Carolina, are reportedly investigating an incident where a black man was handcuffed in his home and taken outside to a police car in his underwear after his burglar alarm went off.
Kazeem Oyeneyin was taking a nap on August 17 when an officer showed up at his front door after the alarm sounded. The officer found the door unlocked and announced himself, and Oyeneyin showed up at the top of his staircase with a gun, which he dropped as soon as the officer asked him to. As Oyeneyin descended the stairs, the officer had his gun drawn and started barking orders.
NYC has a penthouse problem, LA has a mansion problem, and Miami has a condo problem
Miami condos may boast ocean views and luxury living, but that's no longer enough to get them off the market.
Long a city for vacation homes and foreign buyers seeking safe investments, Miami is now faced with a surplus of condos, reported Candace Taylor for The Wall Street Journal. Its high-end real-estate market has slowed in recent years, with condo sales in Miami Beach decreasing by 24% over the past four years, she said.
The condo craze began in the early 2000s, Taylor reported. The market imploded during the financial crisis, but Latin American buyers — along with buyers from Europe and America — brought it back to life post-recession.
But what were once strong South American economies are now suffering, and Latin American buyers have less buying power in the US, according to Taylor. Their disappearance isn't the only factor driving the abundance of empty condos — the threat of rising sea levels and the preference for large houses are also shaping the trend, she said.

Do you consider your home a great investment? Think again
Your home may be many things. A place to raise your family. An opportunity to put down roots.
But one thing it is not is a great investment, according to Jonathan Clements, editor of HumbleDollar.com and author of “How to Think About Money.”
That’s because the price appreciation of a house is “pretty modest” — about 1% a year faster than inflation, historically speaking, he said.
Freddie Mac is forecasting home prices will grow 3.6% in 2019 and 2.6% in 2020. According to the latest figures from the Labor Department, the inflation rate as tracked by the Consumer Price Index is 2% for the 12 months ending in April.
“You put it all together and most people are not keeping up with inflation after costs, and they may even be underwater, ” said Clements, who prefers the higher long-term rate of return of the stock market.
