On the drive to the school, Lightfoot said she saw young kids “skipping ahead” of their parents with excitement. “This is exactly what we fought for,” Lightfoot said, alluding to the bitter fight with the Chicago Teachers Union over the return to in-person learning. The couple didn’t second guess bringing their girls for in-person learning because the family already endured the coronavirus. With 37,000 kindergarten through fifth grade students opted in to in-person learning, the second wave is more than five times bigger than the first. At Wednesday’s Chicago Board of Education meeting, CPS CEO Janice Jackson said the district hopes to bring high school students back before the school year ends.chicagotribune.com

Omitted from debate stage, 2020 Democratic hopefuls seek limelight elsewhere
The Democratic Party has struggled with how to handle a historically large field of candidates. For Thursdays debate, candidates must show that they have received donations from at least 200,000 unique donors, as well as meeting polling benchmarks. Castro bemoaned the ability of billionaires who are self-funding their campaign to make the debate stage. Our campaign has been speaking up for people who are often left behind, Castro said after his walk down some of the roughest blocks in Los Angeles. What we are seeing in this election cycle is that, too often in politics, money still talks, that people can basically buy their way on to the debate stage.feeds.reuters.com

'Daybreak' and 'Looking for Alaska' unleash streaming teen troubles
(CNN) - Every demographic gets its own slice of the streaming pie, but teenagers remain one of the highest-profile niches. Enter a pair of series devoted to teen troubles, Hulu's "Looking for Alaska," adapted from a young-adult novel; and Netflix's "Daybreak," a strange construct set in a post-apocalyptic world. Alaska and her buddies love pulling pranks, much to the chagrin of the school's headmaster ("Veep's" Timothy Simons). Amid that glut, neither "Looking for Alaska" nor "Daybreak" seems destined to resonate much beyond narrow bases, but stranger things -- and "Stranger Things" -- have happened. "Looking for Alaska" premiered Oct. 18 on Hulu.

Paul Rudd does double duty in new series
Jemal Countess/Getty Images(CNN) - Paul Rudd does double duty in "Living With Yourself," a bizarrely twisty, highly inventive dark comedy that, among other things, considers the elusive quest for happiness. The premise, frankly, really doesn't do this Netflix series justice, as the producers somehow keep pulling rabbits -- and unexpected wrinkles -- out of hats. Rudd plays Miles, an ordinary sort who is seemingly living a life of suburban bliss, sleepwalking through a reasonably successful middle-management job and marriage to Kate ((Aisling Bea), even if there's not an abundance of spark left. After that, though, they proceed to basically share Miles' life, with all the discomfort, near misses and resentments that entails. Rudd plays it all with a mix of comedy and pathos, somehow differentiating his double role, even if they're both versions -- down to their memories -- of the same dude.

PopularCBSN Originals | Speaking Frankly: Dating appsDating apps offer seemingly endless potential matches at your fingertips, turning an intimate experience into something that feels more like a video game. But because users hide behind virtual profiles, it's easy to ghost, harass, and view others as non-human and now that bots are populating these platforms, some actually are. As the industry continues to grow, some experts question whether dating app companies are really interested in helping people find love, or if they have an incentive to keep people in an endless cycle of searching and matching without any real connection.cbsnews.com
