Does anyone know how far away can you listen to WCBS 880? The answer might surprise you.
Listening to your 8:00 report as a Rhode Island citizen, I was astounded at the fairy tale that was spun about the changing of the name of the state, eliminating the name Plantations. If your researcher has a hard time locating its history, there's always that great repository of knowledge - Wiki: Despite its name, most of Rhode Island is located on the mainland of the United States. Its official name was originally State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, which is derived from the merger of four Colonial settlements. The settlements of Newport and Portsmouth were situated on what is commonly called Aquidneck Island today but was called Rhode Island in Colonial times.[15][16] Providence Plantation was the name of the colony founded by Roger Williams in the state's capital of Providence.[17] This was adjoined by the settlement of Warwick; hence the plural Providence Plantations. The first English settlement in Rhode Island was the town of Providence, which the Narragansett granted to Roger Williams in 1636. At that time, Williams obtained no permission from the English crown, as he believed that the English had no legitimate claim on Narragansett and Wampanoag territory. However, in 1643, he petitioned Charles I of England to grant Providence and neighboring towns a colonial patent, due to threats of invasion from the colonies of Boston and Plymouth.[25] He used the name "Providence Plantations" in his petition, plantation being the English term for a colony. "Providence Plantations" was therefore the official name of the colony from 1643 to 1663, when a new charter was issued. I've always respected the accuracy and integrity of your station, but this leaves me wondering what else you make up
I'm hearing that Trumper gangs control the routes west of the city including the Tappan Zee bridge. ---Nothing on your news though.

You've missed the main story. It's not how much Trump didn't pay in taxes. It's how many millions he owes that will come due soon that he cannot pay back. One more critical reason he is a massive security risk to the United States.
ARREST, CONVICT, & IMPRISON BREONNA TAYLOR'S MURDERERS: Black Women's Lives Matter!!! Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron Arrest, convict, and imprison for life the racist Police Officers who murdered Emergency Medical Technician, Breonna Taylor of Louisville, Kentucky. I must take this distinct opportunity to commend Black America's Attorney General, Attorney Ben Crump, who recently stated regarding Louisville, Kentucky racist police murder victim, Breonna Taylor's historic civil case settlement victory that, "Today, we got some justice for Breonna Taylor! Along with a $12 million civil settlement, we secured comprehensive police reform in Louisville. This will bring progress and reform out of this tragedy to protect other Black lives." Thank God for the dynamic leadership of Black America's Attorney General Attorney Ben Crump, and his dynamic legal team. They are, and many other anti racism lawyers like them, moving forward and making a major difference in the American legal system. That is absolutely use to sweeping the racist murder of Black lives by racist police under AmeriKKKa's racist rug. ●BLACK WOMEN'S LIVES MATTER!!! ●BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT, KEEP THE PRESSURE ON DAILY!! ●BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT, CONTINUE TO DEMAND DAILY THE ARRESTS, CONVICTIONS & IMPRISIONMENT OF ALL OF BREONNA TAYLOR'S MURDERERS!!! Lets be crystal clear, and connect the dots. When racist police are not are not arrested, are not charged, are not convicted, and are not imprisoned for life in all of these endless criminal cases regarding vicious police brutality, and horrific murder of Black Lives. Sadly, three historically well documented crimes against humanity continue to happen again and again. 1.) Sadly, more and more racist police continue to brutally beat and lierally murder Black lives throughout the landscape of America. 2.) Sadly, more and more deeply troubled people of the exact same ethnic group continue to murder one another, and murder innocent bystanders (INCLUDING YOUNG CHILDREN) of the exact same ethnic group. 3.) Sadly, more and more deeply troubled police officers continue to commit suicide, and or, more police officers are injured and murdered in ambush attacks of absolute anger. Sadly, these are the crystal clear three stages of the continuous cycle of deadly violence that clearly cries out for major police reform from an anti racist perspective all across the landscape of America. Enough is enough!!! We must care, share, and bear the heavy burdens of the broken, battered, and bruised brothers and sisters of hurting humanity. The message of real anti racism reforms must be first and foremost on the radar of America's agenda to shut down racist AmeriKKKa's deadly agenda from the Whitehouse to the voter's house. Catch the vision of victory and never give up!!! https://www.change.org/p/andy-beshear-justice-for-breonna-taylor?utm_medium=facebook_ad&utm_campaign=ND_US_Breonna_PF Pastor Arthur L.

By how much does "social distancing" decrease when student desk dividers are used? And, while seated behind these dividers, are students safe not to wear masks? I have not been able to find any answers in the official CDC guidelines. And, yes. I am a teacher who will be in the classroom!
