South Bend poor say Democrat Pete Buttigieg left them behind

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – C.J. Neely, a black 16-year-old who has lived here all his life, thinks it’s pretty cool that Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of this small city of about 100,000 people, is running for president.

“I never heard about anybody from Indiana running for president,” Neely said recently outside his childhood home in the city’s northwest.

Just a few days before, Buttigieg, a rising star of the Democratic Party, officially launched his bid for president at an abandoned Studebaker plant downtown that the city helped convert into a 800,000-square-foot tech hub, a symbol of the city pushing beyond its 20th century roots.

Neely, who lives just a few miles away, hadn’t heard about the announcement. And, he said, he hasn’t seen the progress.

“This s— looks the same, every time I walk through here,” Neely assessed somberly. Though he acknowledged that the mayor was “trying,” the teenager delivered a blunt conclusion: “He’s improved s—.”

At a time when economic inequality and racial justice are at the nation’s political forefront, Buttigieg’s candidacy could be hamstrung by the impression that he has not tried hard enough to improve the conditions of South Bend’s poor and minority communities.

Even as his national polling numbers rise, the mayor faces criticism about his record on race, including for his handling of a police controversy that continues to be a subject of conversation in the city. His presidential campaign, however, cited South Bend polling data that shows the mayor has made inroads with minority communities. Chris Meagher, Buttigieg’s national press secretary, said in a statement that a poll conducted by Buttigieg’s “Pete for South Bend” campaign last month showed 86% “of folks, with a heavy African-American sample, said that the city was on the right track.”

Indeed, Buttigieg was reelected in 2015 with 80% of the vote, winning every part of South Bend against his Republican competitor. Buttigieg also won 77% of the vote against a black Democratic primary challenger. In that primary race, though, the extent of his victory was uneven, picking up one predominantly black district by only 60 votes, or four percentage points, according to the South Bend Tribune.

The skepticism has dogged him on the campaign trail, too. Buttigieg has struggled to attract diverse audiences at rallies so far in his campaign. It is an issue Buttigieg has said he is “very intent” on fixing. His performance among poor and minority voters has weighed on him in some early national polls, too, particularly as his economic record in South Bend comes into greater focus.

Buttigieg’s campaign declined on multiple occasions to make him available for an interview.

New York City Council passes bill to cut building emissions

The New York City Council on Thursday took a major step toward implementing a pillar of the Green New Deal, the aggressive blueprint for addressing climate change supported by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

The council passed a bill that requires large buildings to meet new standards aimed at reducing their carbon footprint. The bill aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions from the city’s buildings by 40% over the next decade.

That will require many building owners to take measures to make them more energy efficient.

The bill is packaged with several other green initiatives in the Climate Mobilization Act and was passed ahead of Earth Day, which is Monday.

Lawmakers say the bill will help New York achieve its goal of slashing overall greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent below 2005 levels by 2050.

It is also a response to the federal government’s “surrender” in the fight against global warming under President Donald Trump, said council member Costa Constantinides, who introduced the bill.

The legislation aligns with one of the topline goals in Ocasio-Cortez’s plan. Her Green New Deal, which would overhaul the nation’s economy, calls for retrofitting all buildings for energy efficiency within 10 years.

Measles cases approach record as outbreak spreads in New York

The CDC has confirmed 555 measles cases from Jan. 1 through April 11 — approaching the 667 cases diagnosed in 2014 — just four months into this year.

Measles cases approach record as outbreak spreads in New York

Another 90 measles cases were reported in the U.S. last week, putting 2019 on track to be the worst year for the disease since public health officials said it was eradicated in 2010, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC has confirmed 555 measles cases from Jan. 1 through April 11 — approaching the 667 cases diagnosed in 2014 — just four months into this year.

Of the 90 new cases reported last week, 77 were in New York, the CDC said. Fifty cases were reported in New York City and 27 were reported in Rockland County. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio last week declared measles a public health emergency and ordered mandatory vaccinations for people living in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood where the disease is spreading.

For more on investing in health care innovation, click here to join CNBC at our Healthy Returns Summit in New York City on May 21.

Since January, the disease has been reported in 20 states. Outbreaks, defined as three or more cases, are ongoing in five areas: New York City, New York State’s Rockland County, Washington, New Jersey, California’s Santa Cruz County and California’s Butte County.

The CDC said travelers brought back the disease from places like Israel and Ukraine where large measles outbreaks are occurring. Worldwide, there has been a 300% increase in measles cases, to about 112,000 in the first three months of the year from about 28,000 at the same time last year, the World Health Organization said Monday, citing preliminary data.

Measles is highly contagious, infecting up to 90 percent of unvaccinated people who are exposed to it, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The virus can live in the air for up to two hours after an infected person coughs or sneezes, according to the CDC, meaning people can be exposed to it without ever knowing.

People can be infected for days before showing signs of the virus, such as a fever, runny nose or a rash.

These are the 10 best cities for work-life balance

Richard Branson touts the importance of work-life balance and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos aims for “work-life harmony.” Whatever you call it, the benefits of striking a balance between your personal and professional lives is underscored by research.

If work-life balance is something you’re striving for, you might consider making the move out West.

A new analysis by personal finance company Fabric identified the best cities for achieving work-life balance. Fabric analyzed data for 275 of the largest U.S. metro areas, looking at factors like shortest average work weeks and highest cost-of-living adjusted incomes (factoring in geographic differences in the prices of goods and services).

The West and Midwest dominate when it comes to achieving work-life balance, according to the analysis.

Topping Fabric’s list of the best metro areas for work-life balance is Provo-Orem, Utah located about 40 miles from Salt Lake City. It has a short average work week (35.2 hours), a below-average cost of living and a high adjusted median household income of $72,517.

Boulder, Colorado came in second with an average of 36.6-hour work week and an adjusted median household income of $74,228, though Boulder’s cost of living is about 9 percent above average, according to the report.

Rounding out the top three is Bloomington, Illinois, with a short average commute (18.2 minutes each way) and a cost of living 6 percent below average.

Overall, these are the top 10 metro areas for work-life balance, according to Fabric:

1. Provo-Orem, Utah

2. Boulder, Colorado

3. Bloomington, Illinois

4. Ogden-Clearfield, Utah

5. San Luis Obispo-Paso Robles -Arroyo Grande, California

6. Fargo, North Dakota – Minnesota (the city shares a border with both states)

7. Ann Arbor, Michigan

8. Madison, Wisconsin

9. Bend-Redmond, Oregon

10. Salt Lake City, Utah

Fabric’s analysis ranked metros with the best work-life balance based on household income, cost of living, time spent working and time spent commuting. You can see the full analysis and methodology here.

You're not alone if your Bluetooth headphones keep dropping their connection in the city

You’re not imagining it. Stepping off the subway, you pop in your wireless earbuds, climb up the stairs and out into a busy intersection just to have the soundtrack to your morning commute cut out or go static.

That’s what frequently happened to Scott Stonham of Berkshire, England every time he approached one of the busy train stations on his daily commute.

“Does anyone know why there is so much Bluetooth noise in Paddington?” he wrote last month on Twitter.

“I have the same problem with my #AirPods,” replied another Twitter user.

On Reddit, dozens of users have complained about their wireless headphones cutting out or crackling like “static” in major urban hubs like New York City or Chicago. Some even compared the phenomenon to skipping Discman CD players of the 90s.

But it’s that latter explanation that some worry could get worse as wireless technology continues to grow in popularity and get built into things like speakers, household appliances and even city infrastructure.

Already, Apple’s AirPods could be the company’s most popular accessory, with some estimates putting shipments for the product above 100 million by 2021. Apple released the second generation of its hit product last month, with updated features like increased battery life and improved voice commands.

The popularity of wireless devices like Apple’s AirPods or Samsung’s Galaxy Buds means increasingly more people are competing for space on a limited number of airwaves, said Jan Rabaey, a professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences at the University of California Berkeley and the director of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center.

“It’s like a street,” Rabaey said. “If you have a fixed street and you put more and more traffic on it, you’re going to get traffic jams.”

Amazon says it will bring 800 new tech jobs to Austin

Amazon will add 800 tech jobs at its Austin, Texas, location, following Apple’s expanded presence in the city, the company announced Thursday.

The new employees will join the more than 6,600 workers Amazon already has in the Austin area, which already includes more than 1,000 corporate-level workers, The Austin American-Statesman reported. Amazon told the newspaper that it plans to hire the new employees over a period of several years to fill a 145,000-square-foot space in four floors of a North Austin development called The Domain. The employees will be focused on software and hardware engineering, cloud computing and research science.

The Texas capital made Amazon’s shortlist of 20 cities in its search for a second headquarters location. The company ultimately chose New York’s Long Island City and Northern Virginia to place 50,000 employees instead, citing the need for a robust talent pool. Amazon canceled its plans to build an office in Long Island City after facing local opposition, and said it would add new jobs in other cities throughout the country instead.

Austin is quickly solidifying its role as a tech hub. The city already attracts tech types through its annual South by Southwest festival. Apple announced in December that it would invest $1 billion into a new campus in Austin, which will accommodate an initial 5,000 employees. Facebook, Samsung, Dell, Google and other tech companies all have major offices in the Austin area.

One draw for Amazon might have been the fact that it’s grocery business, Whole Foods Market, is already headquartered in Austin. The company already has 2,600 employees working for Whole Foods in Austin, according to the American-Statesman.

Town halls across Germany evacuated after threats: Police

Town halls across Germany evacuated after threats: Police

Town halls in several German cities were evacuated on Tuesday after threats, in some cases bomb threats, were received by email overnight, a number of police forces said.

“A threat against the city of Augsburg has been received, the town hall has been cleared, we are investigating,” tweeted police in the southern city of Augsburg.

Speaking to NBC News, a police spokesman in Augsburg said the email is “analogue to those received” in other cities, as the “content of the mail is identical.”

Police posted similar tweets from western Neunkirchen and Kaiserslautern, eastern Chemnitz and central Goettingen.

Police in the southwestern city of Kaiserslautern told NBC News that an employee of the city hall found an email in the “general email box” this morning at 8:00 a.m. local time, in which an unidentified sender had claimed that “an explosive device had been deposited in the building.”

Police immediately decided to evacuate the 21-story high-rise building and are presently searching the premises.

Police officials in the city of Goettingen also told NBC News that they had received an email claiming that an explosive device had been planted at the town hall. The building has been evacuated and the surrounding streets have been cordoned off.

“We are now trying to identify, who sent these emails and are coordinating our investigation with officials in other German cities, which also received these threats,” a spokesperson told NBC News.

In Chemnitz, a police spokeswoman said that the search of the multi-story town hall building is ongoing.

A police spokesman in the northern German city of Rendsburg also confirmed to NBC News that the local town hall was evacuated this morning, a building search with experts is ongoing. A similar statement was made by a police spokesman in Neunkirchen in the state of Saarland.

The airline said Monday the problem started when an incorrect flight plan was filed by WDL Aviation, which operated the flight on behalf of British Airways. Officials say the pilot followed the flight plan for Edinburgh, and that air traffic control officials also were following the same flight plan and saw nothing amiss.

WDL aviation said it was trying to determine the cause of the “obviously unfortunate mix-up.”

The flight was refuelled and set off again, this time directly to Duesseldorf.

Suspect arrested in shooting that leaves at least 3 dead in Dutch city of Utrecht

A suspect has been arrested in a shooting in the Dutch city of Utrecht that left at least 3 people dead, according to authorities.

Dutch security forces were hunting for a 37-year-old Turkish man suspected of having shot several people on a tram Monday, in what authorities said appeared to be a terrorist attack.

The Mayor of Utrecht, Jan van Zanen, has since claimed that three people have been killed with nine more injured.

Authorities raised the terrorism threat to its highest level in Utrecht province, schools were told to shut their doors and paramilitary police increased security at airports and other vital infrastructure, and also at mosques.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte convened crisis talks, saying he was deeply concerned about the incident, which came three days after a lone gunman killed 50 people in mass shootings at two mosques in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand.

“The police asks you to watch out for 37-year-old Gokmen Tanis (born in Turkey) in connection with this morning’s incident,” Dutch police said in a statement.

They issued an image of the man and warned the public not to approach him. They gave no further details.

Earlier, the head of Dutch counter-terrorism said shots had been fired at several locations, without elaborating. Counter-terrorism units surrounded a house in Utrecht, Dutch television showed, but no one appeared to have been arrested.

“A lot is still unclear at this point and local authorities are working hard to establish all the facts. What we already know is that a culprit is at large,” Counter-Terrorism Agency head Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg told a news conference.

Aalbersberg, who said the shooting “appears to be a terrorist attack”, declined to comment on the number of injured or on their condition and did not confirm any deaths.
