    AUGUSTA, Ga. — So, you say you don’t believe in the gods that reside high up in the tall pine trees that surround, overlook and protect Augusta National? You say you don’t believe there are mystical forces at work on the sacred grounds where green jackets are awarded and hearts are broken? You say you don’t believe in karma, that it can sometimes be a bitch? Well then, have a look at Bryson DeChambeau’s past two days at the Masters. You know what Augusta National has been doing to DeChambeau, the favorite to win entering the week and the biggest story in golf? Punishing him. How else do you explain DeChambeau’s nightmarish two days after arriving to Augusta so cocksure about his game and the possibility that he might dismantle Alister MacKenzie’s crown jewel with his newfound bulk, length and technological advances? DeChambeau has spoken overtly about the fact he...
    Savannah Rychcik November 13, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump’s former chief of staff, John Kelly, is arguing his refusal to concede the election is affecting the nation’s national security. “You lose a lot if the transition is delayed because the new people are not allowed to get their head in the game,” Kelly told Politico Friday. He added, “The president, with all due respect, does not have to concede. But it’s about the nation. It hurts our national security because the people who should be getting [up to speed], it’s not a process where you go from zero to 1,000 miles per hour.” Kelly acknowledged Trump “doesn’t have to concede if he doesn’t want to, I guess, until the full election process is complete.” He continued, “But there’s nothing wrong with starting the transition, starting to get people like the national security people, obviously the...

    VIDEO5:1005:10Three areas of growth could fuel 2021, National Securities' Art Hogan saysTrading Nation Wall Street underwent a great market shift this week. After leading the market higher off the March lows, growth and tech stocks took a backseat to value stocks highly sensitive to economic activity. The IVW growth ETF is on track to close out the week 1% lower; the IVE value ETF on track to end 4% higher. That shift is only just beginning with the economic recovery set to accelerate in 2021, according to Art Hogan, chief market strategist at National Securities.  "Economic growth is going to happen in 2021 as we start to get readouts on vaccines, as we start to inoculate the population, as we start feeling more comfortable doing those things we haven't done," Hogan told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Thursday.

Baskow/Zuma Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.This piece was originally published in HuffPost and appears here as part of our Climate Desk Partnership. President Donald Trump‘s legacy on public lands is a four-year war against protected wild places, which has included dismantling Utah’s Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments.  That legacy will follow him long after he’s out of the White House. But many of the rollbacks are unlikely to survive the incoming Democratic administration.  President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris have vowed to not only restore the Utah monuments, but designate new protected sites to safeguard ecologically important landscapes and combat the global climate crisis. “As President, Biden will take immediate steps to reverse...
    OTTAWA, ON, Nov. 12, 2020 /CNW/ –  The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (CAP) condemns the exclusion of its voices from a high level meeting on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). Today’s Federal-Provincial Territorial (FPT) meeting with select National Indigenous Organizations (NIO) discussing the draft legislation to implement UNDRIP was organized by the federal Department of Justice. CAP’s National Chief Elmer St. Pierre stated, “The exclusion of CAP from this FPT UNDRIP meeting is nothing short of racial profiling indicative of systemic racism on behalf of so-called Justice officials. The perspective of off-reserve Indigenous peoples is not optional. It is an obligation.” The Department of Justice organized an FPT meeting with only three of five National Indigenous Organizations, leaving out CAP and the Native Women’s Association of Canada. The Department is deliberately excluding off-reserve Indigenous input. While other Indigenous organizations were provided many months of consultation, CAP...

    (CNN)A revitalized Tiger Woods drew on his vast experience at Augusta National to open his defense of the US Masters crown with a solid 4-under-par 68.Many had written off Woods after a poor 2020, with a previous best finish of 37th. But on Thursday he silenced the doubters as he cleverly plotted his way around a course where he has been crowned champion five times before, including his incredible comeback triumph last year.With the playing time shorter in the autumn, the field started from both the 1st and 10th tees.

    The women’s basketball team has won 13 medals in the 18 championships played this century, the last seven consecutively between 2013 and 2019. The successes re-dimensioned the path of a legendary group that became an emigrant by projection and obligation. The boom and bust of the Spanish league set the pace for a diaspora that is now coming to an end. The “army of Pancho Villa”, as Amaya Valdemoro titled the moving adventure of her contemporaries in inferiority of centimeters and conditions with the rivals, progressively transformed into a competitive mob that broke the percentiles by dint of talent and character. The bronzes in the European Championship in Latvia (2009) and in the World Cup in the Czech Republic (2010) were the first two medals for Alba Torrens, Silvia Domínguez, Laura Nicholls and Anna Cruz, the nucleus that, with the captaincy of Laia Palau, the first...

    The popular video-sharing app TikTok, its future in limbo since President Donald Trump tried to shut it down earlier this fall, is asking a federal court to intervene. TikTok's Chinese owner, ByteDance, has until Thursday to sell off its U.S. operations under an executive order that Trump signed in August. Trump in September gave his tentative blessing to a ByteDance proposal meant to resolve U.S. national security concerns by placing TikTok under the oversight of American companies Oracle and Walmart, each of which would also have a financial stake in the company.  But TikTok said this week it's received 'no clarity' from the U.S. government about whether its proposals have been accepted.

    Hunter Biden’s laptops join the GOP’s pantheon of election-eve fake scandals, along with 2018’s Honduran caravans and MS-13 freakouts, 2016’s Hillary’s emails, and 2014’s Ebola hysteria—all of them stories that conservative media amplified and hyped until the election, after which all coverage ceased.  But Hunter Biden wasn’t alone this year, as this Verge headline reminds us: TikTok says the Trump administration has forgotten about trying to ban it, would like to know what’s up This all started in August, when crybaby Donald Trump attempted to ban the social media network, apparently because 1) it has Chinese corporate parents, and 2) K-pop fans used the network to organize signups to Trump’s Tulsa rally—the one he and then-campaign manager Brad Parscale claimed would be attended by 1 million people. Barely 6,000 showed up in the end.  Now, there are plenty of real reasons to challenge the operation of Chinese companies on U.S. soil. China severely restricts...
    Wild chimpanzees have been found to be infected with leprosy for the first time, in two locations in West Africa that are separated by hundreds of miles. Experts discovered two wild chimp populations, in Guinea-Bissau's Cantanhez National Park and Taï National Park in Ivory Coast, that are infected with the disease, as confirmed by faecal samples.   Leprosy – which is caused by mycobacterium leprae, a species of bacteria – once caused misery to millions of humans across the planet, with colonies set up to isolate the sick from civilisation.  The chronic infectious disease causes gruesome skin lesions and, if left untreated, nerve damage that can result in crippling of hands and feet, paralysis, blindness and loss of body parts.  It has been controlled in humans with antibiotics since the 1980s, and researchers once thought it had been wiped out in the animal kingdom. But in the last two decades scientists have found it spreading in...

    A coronavirus advisor to president elect Joe Biden believes that shutting down businesses nationally for between four to six weeks could help the United States from entering 'Covid hell'.

Five-hundred and 79 days since the sports world cast its gaze on Augusta National and the game’s undisputed cathedral of major championship golf delivered, just like it always does. “It's not how I wanted to retain the jacket, for this long,” Woods admitted ahead of his delayed title defense. “Obviously this has been an unprecedented circumstance we're all dealing with.” Unprecedented seems to fall flat when it comes to the last 579...

    The Army rescued three minors, whose ages range between 14 and 17 years. In territorial control operations in the rural area of ​​the Luis Vero district, in the municipality of Sardinata, in the department of Norte de Santander, troops from the Colombian National Army rescued three minors who had been recruited by dissidents from the 33rd front of the Farc. “At a time when patrolling and controlling the area were being carried out, we were able to rescue three minors, whose ages range between 14 and 17, and were used to transport weapons for the exclusive use of the Military Forces.”Explained the commander of the Army’s Second Division, General Marcos Pinto to RCN Radio. In the official Army statement, the institution reveals that, at the time of the rescue, the minors were carrying one 7.62mm caliber machine gun with a spare barrel, four 5.52mm caliber...
    By referendum on Election Day, Colorado became the 15th state (plus the District of Columbia) to join an interstate compact to elect the president by popular vote. Minnesota is not yet one of them. I favor this crazy idea — that the person who gets the most votes in a presidential election should become president. It’s called, rather plainly, “National Popular Vote.” I’ve heard all the arguments in favor of the Electoral College, and in my humble opinion they are lame, bordering on laughable. I’ll get back to them below. But the news is that with Colorado on board, states (plus D.C.) representing 196 electoral votes now have joined the compact. If enough states join to push that up to 270, and if this crazy idea holds together, it would mean that every vote would have equal weight, replacing the current system in which a few swing votes in a...
    In her new memoir, Megan Rapinoe said she "never felt in safe hands" with former USWNT head coach Jill Ellis and that their relationship was strained. Michael Chow-USA TODAY Sports In her new memoir — "One Life" — Megan Rapinoe details her rise to women's soccer superstardom and social justice heroism. In 2016, the US Women's National Team icon kneeled in protest of racial inequality and police brutality becoming one of the first white professional athletes to show solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. Rapinoe faced repercussions from US Soccer and USWNT head coach Jill Ellis for kneeling, including briefly losing her spot on the national team roster. She called Ellis' approach "utter, evasive bullshit." The pink-haired World Cup star admitted that her "interactions with Jill became strained" and, eventually, that her attitude towards the coach was, "essentially, f--- you."

    (CNN)President Donald Trump continues to baselessly contest the election results and top Republicans have been circling the wagons to amplify that message. But one key ally has been publicly absent from the conversation: Vice President Mike Pence. While Trump adopts an aggressive posture on social media and in a falsehood-laden White House appearance last week before the race was called for Democrat Joe Biden, Pence appears to be making a political calculation by keeping his head down. The vice president, who maintained a busy travel schedule in the weeks before the election, has made scant public appearances since Election Day and has yet to take questions from reporters. Privately, he's towing the line -- but publicly he's remained under the radar in the wake of the election which handed Biden a decisive victory. Pence's office did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment.Trump White House Trump fires...
    TikTok hasn’t heard from the Trump administration in weeks Trump’s attempt to overturn the election result is ramping up. Here’s what comes next. For Masters first-timers, the lack of a Par 3 Contest doesnt diminish a week at Augusta National Amid a year of lost traditions, the par-3 course at Augusta National will be awfully quiet on Wednesday afternoon. Normally, Wednesday is the day players let loose, put a significant other on the bag – or track down tiny caddie bibs for their kids – and hit a few trick shots around the par-3 course on the northeast corner of the property. © Provided by Golfweek PGA: The Masters - John Augenstein Lanto Griffin is playing his first Masters this week after qualifying courtesy of his 2019 Houston Open win.

    Entertainment : The British government presents this Wednesday to Parliament, where it has a very large majority, a bill to prevent foreign companies from buying strategic assets for national security. This text seeks to modernize a two-decade-old law that no longer adapts to current threats, the Ministry of Business, Energy and Industry explained in a statement. And it comes at a time when significant Chinese investments in the UK are worrying even in the ranks of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party, some of whose MPs are calling for a tougher stance on Beijing. The new national security and investment bill will force investors or companies to inform the government of takeover offers in sectors such as defense, energy or transportation. The government published a list of 17 affected areas of activity, which include the civil nuclear sector, artificial intelligence, robotics and the space...

    That meeting between Gerardo Martino and Carlos Vela, in front of a sunny table in a cafeteria in Los Angeles, could be the only picture in which both are together during the process that must end in the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Almost two years later, the coach of the Mexican National Team confesses that it is increasingly difficult for the Los Angeles FC forward to put on the national jersey … And it not only has to do with a personal position, but with respect for those who today they dress her. “The decision is always his. I took the initiative, we had a talk,” recalls “Tata” in an interview. “He also knows that a National Team coach does not ask a player two, three or four times to come, because they are talking about the National Team.” “We got together once, we said...

    WHITE House officials reportedly fear that Donald Trump could expose America's close-kept secrets even after President-elect Joe Biden takes office on January 20. Current and former officials believe that Trump's history of loose lips and his anger at the "deep state" conspiracy he believes cost him the 2020 presidential election make him a huge counterintelligence risk. 7Current and former White House officials worry that Donald Trump could be a national security risk when he leaves officeCredit: Splash News 7Experts believe that Trump's loose lips and short temper could push him to reveal the nation's secretsCredit: Getty Images - Getty The sitting president refuses to accept defeat and has repeatedly pushed unsubstantiated claims of the election being "rigged" against him.

Woods has just one top-10 finish on the PGA Tour in the last 12 months, a tie for ninth at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in January, a tournament played so long ago that there were actually fans there. His best finish since the restart in June was a lackluster tie for 37th at the PGA Championship. He’s played just twice since August, missing the cut at the U.S. Open and finishing 72nd at the Zozo Championship, beating only three players at a course, Sherwood Country Club, where he had won five times before. But if Woods proved anything on that April afternoon a year ago, it’s that he should never be counted out — especially at a place like Augusta National that he knows so well....

    President Trump appointed longtime national security official Christopher C. Miller as acting defense secretary on Monday following his surprise firing via tweet of Mark Esper. Miller, 55, takes over Esper’s role after serving as director of the National Counterterrorism Center since last August. Prior to that position, Miller was the deputy assistant secretary of defense for special operations and combating terrorism. “I am pleased to announce that Christopher C. Miller, the highly respected director of the National Counterterrorism Center (unanimously confirmed by the Senate), will be Acting Secretary of Defense, effective immediately,” Trump wrote on Twitter. VideoTrump added, “Chris will do a great job” and noted that Esper “has been terminated.” The president did not provide an explanation for Esper’s termination, though rumors that his exit was imminent have circulated in recent weeks. Miller served in the military from 1983 to 2014 and participated in combat operations in Afghanistan in 2001...
    By Dan Reardon (CBS Miami/CBS Local) — Augusta National would probably lead the field, if it were possible to survey golfers for the course that tops their ‘bucket list.’ No golf course has been viewed by more people than the home of the Masters, and its forbidden access makes it golf’s Shangri-La. The nearly 100-acre Fruitland property, on which Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie collaborated in the early 1930s, incorporates their philosophy of how the game should be played. But its almost mythical status in the minds of golf fans is tied to the video canvases created by CBS’s Hall of Fame TV director Frank Chirkinian over his 40 years of Masters coverage. The beauty of The National, now almost obsessively prepared for the weekend in early April or, in 2020, November, was integral to MacKenzie’s design. “The chief object of every golf course architect or greenskeeper worth his salt...

    Joe Biden in Tampa, Florida on Oct. 29. 2020.Dave Decker Democrat Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States on Saturday, positioning himself to lead a nation gripped by historic pandemic and a confluence of economic and social turmoil.

Here is a compilation of reactions from Florida elected officials and politicians: Former Governor Jeb Bush, via Twitter: Congratulations to President-elect Biden. I have prayed for our President most of my adult life. I will be praying for you and your success. Now is the time to heal deep wounds.
