The Biden administration sees this change as needed in order to create a more effective process for all included.The goal is to release 100 families per day and emulate New York’s Ellis Island in South Texas.Law enforcement alerted to new threats on capitol Federal law enforcement is on alert after there was a potential threat against the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, according to CNN.This threat, made by a group of violent militia extremists, reportedly centered around taking control of the U.S. capitol. The specific date of March 4 stems from a far-right conspiracy theory that asserts former President Donald Trump will re-assume office Thursday.Due to mistakes made ahead of Jan. 6, when officers were overtaken by a violent mob that stormed the Capitol, there has been an effort at increased communication to prevent a similar event from occurring.The joint effort of the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security stay highly alert during this time.Alabama extends mask mandate Texas Representative Erin Zwiener DSHS Commissioner, questions John Hellerstedt, MD, during a video hearing about Gov. Greg Abbott’s decision to end the statewide mask mandate aimed at stopping the spread of the coronavirus, Wednesday, March 3, 2021. (Ricardo B. Brazziell/Austin American-Statesman via AP)Alabama and Republican Gov. Kay Ivey announced an extension of their mask mandate a day after Texas decided to lift their own, according to the New York Times.Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas made plans to lift the statewide mask mandate earlier this week and allowed Texas businesses to return to full capacity.Many inside and outside Texas were frustrated with Abbott, as the state has already reported more than 44,000 deaths and nearly 2.7 million COVID-19 cases.“The last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking that in the meantime, everything’s fine, take off your mask and forget it,” President Joe Biden told reporters at the White House.Gov. Kay Ivey of Alabama went against Abbott, extending the state’s mandate and saying that “there’s no question that wearing masks has been one of my greatest tools in combating the virus.”Ivey wants more Alabamians to get vaccinated before she lifts the mask mandate.

Her original piece about mental health and suicide, Ceiling In The Floor, was intended to be a single performance in 2015. Entering its fourth year in repertory and its 45th performance, Ceiling has proven to be an important and surprisingly popular show for Thomas and the Lineage Performing Arts Center, largely because of the tenderness and care the piece showed to its subject matter.Thomas is back with another challenging piece, and this time she turns her focus to how we move on after a loved one has passed. Weaving together the true and endearing stories of three women–a daughter losing a mother, a wife losing a husband, and a chaplain with thirteen years of counseling mourners–Life After Death for the Living tells less a story of dying, and more the story of how to live.The show blends live storytelling with three actresses, Marisa Echeverria, Lizzie Gracen, and Tess Lina, live piano performed by George Ramirez, and Thomas’ original choreography with the Lineage Dance Company. The Lineage Performing Arts Center’s black box theater holds only fifty guests at a time, making the intimate show even more personal and up-close. Each evening will include a post-show panel featuring Emily Lau and experts in the field of death and dying.Performances are on Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 7:00 p.m., April 7, 8, 14, and 15 at Lineage Performing Arts Center, 89 S. Fair Oaks Avenue, Pasadena.Tickets are $20.00/advance purchase, and $25.00/door. Student and senior tickets are $15.00/$20.00.

In some of the hardest-hit states, including California and New York, officials are placing restrictions on landlords issuing evictions.Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti issued an executive order that no landlord can evict a residential tenant in the City of Los Angeles during the local emergency period. Tenants will have up to six months following the expiration of the local emergency period to repay any back due rent. The LA City Council is considering expanding the moratorium to 12 months.Meanwhile, in Oakland County, Michigan, County Treasurer Andy Meisner announced that the county will not be issuing residential or business foreclosure notices through the end of 2020. According to Meisner, the county will not be foreclosing on homes or businesses that do not make the March 31 tax deadline.Recently, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced an emergency directive putting a moratorium on all evictions and foreclosures in his state. The directive will be in effect for 90 days and applies to both residential and commercial tenants.”This is not the time to put people out on the streets,” Sisolak said. “This is also not the time to evict small business owners who have been hit by the economic fallout of this pandemic.”On a national level, Wells Fargo & Company has announced that it has suspended residential property foreclosure sales, evictions and involuntary auto repossessions, as part of additional comprehensive steps to help customers, communities and employees grappling with the impact of COVID-19. Additionally, the Wells Fargo Foundation will increase its charitable donations to $175 million to help address food, shelter, small business and housing stability, as well as to provide help to public health organizations.center_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
