    Fitbit shares sagged as much as 6 percent Tuesday after Australian antitrust regulators threw yet another roadblock in front of its acquisition by Google. Officials in the land Down Under rejected Google’s concessions meant to address competitive concerns over its planned $2.1 billion tie-up with the fitness giant. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission had voiced concerns back in June that the acquisition would give Google too much access to people’s data, which would help it cement its dominance in both the health and online advertising markets. In the US Google has been slapped with three antitrust lawsuits by the feds and various state Attorney Generals in recent weeks accusing it of unfairly dominating the lucrative digital ad market, including through allegedly anticompetitive pacts with tech giants Facebook and Apple. Google had offered to abide by court enforceable rules governing how it behaved toward rival...

Who doesn’t love a little friendly competition, right? We’ve rounded up some questions to test your family members on so that you can spend more time playing the game than creating it. How did red and green become Christmas colors? We mostly have holly and Coca-Cola to thank for the rise of red and green as Christmas colors. Holly, obviously, has bright red berries and dark green leaves. It was used long ago by the ancient Celts for winter solstice celebrations as a symbol of protection...
    With Chris Paul’s arrival, the Phoenix Suns face playoff expectations for the first time in years. Here are their five big questions for the 2020-21 NBA season. The Phoenix Suns have spent more time aimlessly wandering the desert than most Biblical characters lately. Thanks to Devin Booker‘s tireless efforts, head coach Monty Williams and general manager James Jones, the losing culture that comes with a 10-year playoff drought is beginning to wash away. In 2019, the Suns traded down from No. 6 to No. 11 to take Johnson as high as they did (with Brandon Clarke still on the board). Then they basically followed it up with something eerily similar in 2020, taking Smith much earlier than anticipated (with Tyrese Haliburton and Devin Vassell still on the board). Cam Johnson worked out beautifully for the Suns, so we’ll give Jones the benefit of the doubt that Smith can be a...

They include your ability to adapt to a foreign culture, overcome language barriers and find access to quality health care.

    By BILL BARROW, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — When a conservative organization announced plans this month to launch an election integrity operation in Georgia, the group’s news release included a high-profile name: the chairman of the state’s Republican Party. Less than a week later, the same group announced plans to challenge the eligibility of hundreds of thousands of Georgia voters. To Democrats in the state and voting rights advocates, it was verification of what they have long argued — that the Georgia GOP is supporting efforts to suppress voting in one of the nation’s newest political battlegrounds. It also raised questions about the legality of any coordination between the state party and the group True the Vote, charges the organization’s founder disputes.

    (CBS4) – Great Britain is reporting the coronavirus has mutated and is that it is more contagious. That has prompted quarantines and dozens of countries have now banned British travelers. (credit: iStock/Getty Images) CBSN Denver asked CBS4 Medical Editor Dr. Dave Hnida about the mutation Monday morning. He explained that is not unusual for a virus to mutate. “This virus has already mutated dozens and dozens of times. It’s not necessarily alarming,” he explained. “It does deserve that we keep a close eye on what sort of mutations are taking place.” That mutation is not deadlier but Dr. Dave did address the reports that it was more contagious. “That has not rally been proven. It has not been proven in a lab setting that this particular strain is more contagious. In fact, many scientists do believe that it is really more behavior driven, in terms of what is going on....
    I Got a Robe: SNLs Christmas Skit with Kristen Wiig Is Relatable to Moms on So Many Levels The 7 Best VA Loan Lenders for 2021 James Harden refuses to answer questions about trade demand James Harden’s trade request has become the big story around the Houston Rockets, whether he intended it or not. Now the guard is trying to shut down the questions about his future. © Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports James Harden Harden pushed aside all questions about his future and his current mindset. When asked if he felt better about the team since arriving at training camp, according to Ben DuBose of Rockets Wire, Harden simply responded with “next question.” DuBose clarified that this was essentially Harden’s stock answer to any chatter about his future or his happiness. Some context to this, Harden basically dodged or reframed every question that referenced or alluded to his "situation."...
    The Charlotte Hornets landed LaMelo Ball in the draft and Gordon Hayward in free agency. What does the 2020-21 season have in store for them?1. Who is the Hornets’ third-most important offensive player?P.J. Washington. The Hornets‘ offense is going to rely heavily, on the talents of their individual shot creators and, when healthy, they’ll almost always one at least two of the Devonte’ Graham, Terry Rozier, LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward quarter on the floor. Those ball-handlers all fit together in slightly different and interesting ways, based on their size, shooting and passing profiles. But in any of those combinations, Washington is the crucial third leg of the stool. All due respect to Cody Zeller, but Washington is the only big man with any real versatility in his offensive skill set. As a rookie, he averaged 12.2 points per game knocking down 37.4 percent of his 3-pointers and adding another...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore mayor Brandon Scott and city officials are urging city resident to answer calls to COVID-19 contact tracers. Health department officials say they will not share personal information with police or immigration agencies. “Let me emphasize that we do not share your personal information with anyone, not the police, not immigration, not IRS, no other agency,” said Will Smith, senior manager for the case investigation contact tracing team for the Baltimore City Health Department. “We are the health department and the only reason we need this information is to help you help your family and your friends from becoming sick and also help those that are sick.” “We don’t snitch to your friends,” Smith said, adding they are only collecting information for the sake of information others of possible exposure and to collect information for the health department to trace COVID-19 spread.

    HOUSE Speaker Nancy Pelosi has refused to answer repeated questions on why she accepted the $900billion stimulus bill but rejected a more generous package before the presidential election.  The Democratic speaker seemed to ignore questions from CNN senior Congressional correspondent Manu Raju on Sunday around why she did not accept a larger stimulus bill from the Trump administration.  5House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would not answer questions on why she rejected a larger stimulus package before the presidential electionCredit: EPA 5The $900billion stimulus bill would include $600 direct payments to most AmericansCredit: Getty Images - Getty “Pelosi wouldn’t answer my question about why the $900billion deal is more acceptable to her than the $1.8trillion offer Mnuchin made to her this fall,” Raju said, according to The Daily Wire.  “She left the press conference as I asked her the question, and she ignored my question in the hallway as well.” Raju said...
    Audrey Saracco / EyeEm Millions of Americans can finally expect to see second stimulus checks in their bank accounts soon. This time, however, those payments will be up to $600 per person for those eligible — half the $1,200 that was sent in the first round of checks in the spring. The new one-time checks are part of a coronavirus aid deal Washington lawmakers said they had struck on Sunday. News of a package follows months of negotiations between Republicans and Democrats on how much total help should be provided and what areas should qualify for more relief.

    As President-elect Joe Biden prepares to take office, there are plenty of questions that the media should be pressing him on. Instead, they’ve allowed him leeway. Joe Biden’s son Hunter announced earlier in December that he is under federal investigation. Hunter’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski has claimed the incoming president was closer to his son’s business dealings than he’s admitted. There are also policy considerations, particularly with other countries and areas of the world, like China and the Middle East. Instead of pushing Biden on some of the tough questions, much of the media is letting the president-elect off the hook. Here are six questions the press should have been asking and should be asking Biden leading up to his presidency: Have you had dinner with Bobulinski? What was discussed? Bobulinski has accused Biden of lying about his involvement in Hunter’s business dealings. He told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson...
    The San Antonio Spurs saw their multi-decade playoff streak broken last year. Are they ready to start a new one?1. More likely to be traded by the deadline: LaMarcus Aldridge or DeMar DeRozan?Is there an NBA team run by Jawas? And the answer San Antonio Spurs were immediately given is that Luka Šamanić is a Croatian professional basketball player. They were then shown whatever limited tape and highlights existed of the young Croatian prospect, told something about his either having or not having a lengthy wingspan and great motor by Jay Bilas, and then given the standard line that he would probably have to be stashed overseas or in the G League until further notice. Since that night, Šamanić has spent most of his basketball life stashed away with San Antonio’s G League affiliate in Austin. And of that time Air Alamo’s Dylan Carter writes the following two paragraphs: Through...
    The Heat caught fire en route to an NBA Finals appearance last season, but it will be difficult for Miami to match that feat this year. Erik Spoelstra and his coaching staff deserve a ton of credit for their work to get the Heat playing their best basketball at the right time last season. They found the perfect formula for success in the Bubble and parlayed it into a Finals appearance. Miami came up short against the Lakers, but there’s no shame in losing to LeBron James and Anthony Davis. 4. What performative act will Jimmy Butler pull this year to prove he works harder than anyone else?Butler is a terrific talent, but it is his maniacal work ethic that permits him to be a killer when the playoffs come around. He can’t afford to see any slippage in terms of his work-rate if he wants to remain an All-Star...
    The Oklahoma City Thunder are a totally new team after myriad changes this past offseason. Here are five big questions facing the Thunder this season. 1. Which is the higher number: Future first-round draft picks owed to the Thunder or the number of OKC wins in 2020-21?According to my count, Oklahoma City has a maximum of 12 potential future first-round picks that may convey to them from 2021-2026, not including their own. In scientific terms, that’s a s***-ton. However, even though the Thunder figure to be one of, if not the, worst teams in the Western Conference, they will not be 11-61 levels of bad unless Shai Gilegous-Alexander misses a healthy chunk of the season due to injury. So, the nod goes to wins, but no one is better stocked for the future than the Thunder. The Hulkin’ BalkanThe Absurd SerbThe Belgrade BeastThe Avala TowerThe Artist Formerly Known As Poku5....
    With small-ball grand chancellors Daryl Morey and Mike D’Antoni gone, an air of uncertainty surrounds the Houston Rockets. Here lie their five biggest questions for 2020-21.1. What are the odds James Harden is still on the roster past the 2021 trade deadline?Very slim. Like, the opposite of how James Harden showed up to preseason. Players have more power than ever before and Harden — wielding a substantial amount as one of the NBA’s best — will get his ticket out sooner or later. Over the past two seasons with the Rockets, Austin Rivers averaged an unspectacular nine points, two rebounds and two assists, while providing league-average floor spacing in 26 minutes a game. While those numbers won’t raise any eyebrows, 26 minutes presents Houston with a significant hole to fill. The backup point guard is actually a blind spot on this roster. If Wall stays healthy and Harden reverses course...
    The Washington Wizards resisted the urge to blow things up and brought in Russell Westbrook to flank Bradley Beal. Here are their five biggest questions for 2020-21.1. Russell Westbrook + Bradley Beal = ??WASHINGTON’S GLORIOUS RETURN TO THE POSTSEASON! Yes, the Eastern Conference continues to grow stronger but those bottom-rung playoff seeds are ripe for the picking. Beal and Westbrook have an MVP and 11 All-Star appearances between them and could certainly make that 13 this year. Being able to lean on each other’s strengths should only help their production.5. Which wizard from books, movies or television is the best comparison for Deni Avdija?Tall? Handsome? Well-liked heartthrob? The only answer as Avdija’s fictional wizard comp is Cedric Diggory from Harry Potter. Next: Meet the 2020 NBA 25-under-25 Just like Diggory in the Potter Universe, Avdija should play a key, but secondary role for Washington. Neither are the best wizard/Wizard in...

(AP Photo/Mark Lennihan, Pool)  Whoops of celebration, crackling applause and tears of joy erupted as the first health care workers were jabbed with the coronavirus vaccine last week, kicking off the largest mass vaccination campaign in history. After their second dose, will they have to roll up their sleeves again in six months or a year? Will you? In this unprecedented, worldwide, real-time experiment, the answers to many questions remain shrouded in mystery. But scientists have been scrutinizing the novel coronavirus for nearly a year, and their understanding of its wily ways grows every day. What kind of immunity will these shots provide, and how long it will last? When might we reach “herd immunity,” when life...

    You have questions? They have answers. The New York State Department of Health has launched a new website to address any questions that one may have regarding the new COVID-19 vaccine that is being distributed to hospitals across the state. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the new website during his latest COVID-19 briefing on Wednesday, Dec. 16. “The website will have all the information, it’s a one-stop-shop for all the information,” Cuomo said while noting the website’s logo was supposed to represent the band-aid that would be placed on an arm after receiving a vaccine.

    A new report is raising questions about Mitch McConnell’s margin of victory in his Senate re-election, saying that a resounding win despite a very low approval rating appears to be a “turning water into wine-style miracle.” The analysis from DCReport noted that going into 2020, many voters in Kentucky appeared to be angry with McConnell’s performance, pointing out that at one point he had an 18 percent approval rating before climbing to 39 percent just before voters took to the polls. Despite what appeared to be a significant handicap with voters, McConnell was able to win by close to 20 points over Democratic challenger Amy McGrath. The report pointed out that McConnell seemed to overperform in a number of traditional Democratic strongholds, winning counties he had never won before. The outlet said that the anomalies were enough to justify a deeper investigation of the voting totals. “Even as Republicans across...
    Friday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson argued the public was justified in having a degree of skepticism about the COVID-19 vaccine being rolled out throughout the world. Carlson reminded viewers that those promoting the vaccine did not always necessarily have Americans’ best interests in mind, and that attitude warranted questions. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: The first reports of mysterious new virus spreading through Central China reached the West last winter. This show first reported on COVID in January back before it had a name. That was nearly a year ago. For the past 11 months, the world has been waiting with increasing desperation for a cure, for a vaccine. More than a million and a half people have died. Now the vaccine has finally arrived and a new vaccine just today approved. We should be rejoicing in this, and yet, many Americans are reluctant to take the vaccine. Why? Well,...

In a Saturday morning pair of tweets, Trump used his first public remarks on the cyber intrusion to dismiss the severity of the hack and indicate that the media was playing it up to hurt him. The comments directly contradicted government officials and outside experts who said the attack, which hit the departments of Energy, Homeland Security, State and Treasury and more, was one of the broadest cyber attacks in recent memory.  “The Cyber Hack is far greater in the Fake News Media than...
    The Mandalorian season 2 finale was both an exhilarating snowball of the past eight episodes’ many storylines and a minor betrayal of everything we loved about the show. What can we say, we love Mando and Grogu. But whatever we thought of the last 10 minutes, there’s no argument: the season was top-notch. So, naturally, we’ll spend the next year (or more?) thinking about what’s in store for The Mandalorian season 3. While those final scenes were jaw-dropping TV, the finale raised a number of questions that could either be picked up down the line or hand-waved away. (“These are not the plot threads you’re looking for.”) Here’s what’s still buzzing in our brains, knowing what we know about what happens to Din Djarin, Grogu, and the rest of The Mandalorian side characters.

    Jevon Hunter, a professor of urban education at SUNY Buffalo State, spoke to the Beacon school board on Monday (Dec. 14) about creating a “culturally relevant curriculum.”  Jevon Hunter What is a culturally relevant curriculum? It’s a curriculum that speaks to the lived experiences of young people. Often, the curriculum is disconnected from their lives or tends to privilege one ethnic or racial group. We’re trying to interrupt that and provide additional voices and identities within education. It’s important to recognize how different ethnic groups were able to persist — even resist — and thrive in environments that were set up to prevent their success.  Does that mean rewriting history? It’s not so much that we need to rewrite history, but when we look at historical events, we need to be able to say that the curriculum, as it stands, is here for a particular reason. We need to talk...

    WASHINGTON — House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called for Rep. Eric Swalwell to be yanked from the House Intelligence Committee after receiving an FBI briefing Friday on the California congressman’s relationship with a suspected Chinese spy, which McCarthy said only raised more questions. “I don’t talk about what goes on inside of there but it only raised more questions,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said after he and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) were given a closed-door briefing. “The one thing that was fundamentally answered was he should not be on Intel,” McCarthy claimed. Pressure is mounting on Pelosi to remove Swalwell from the highly sensitive post after it was revealed he was targeted by suspected spy Fang Fang before she fled the country in 2015. Fang reportedly cozied up to a slew of US elected officials, including Swalwell, in a bid to infiltrate the US political system, according to an Axios report which cited US intelligence officials....
            by Bruce Walker  The Michigan House and Senate Oversight Committees are assuming authority to issue subpoenas, administer oaths and examine books and records related to the 2020 election. The committees immediately proceeded to issue subpoenas to election clerks in Detroit and Livonia. Detroit Clerk Janice Winfrey and Livonia Clerk Susan Nash have until the end of business on Jan. 12 to turn over documents pertaining to their respective elections. “This is about people, not politics,” Rep. Matt Hall, R-Marshall, said in a statement. “The electoral votes for Michigan have been submitted. But people in Michigan still have questions about their state’s elections and those questions deserve answers. I fear we are headed for more distrust in the future if people are denied clarity and transparency from officials who head up the process,” Hall said. Rep. Tristan Cole, R-Mancelona, agreed with Hall, stating that Michigan voters...

Hill on a call with reporters specifically singled out a $700 million loan given by the Pentagon to YRC Worldwide under the $2.2 trillion CARES Act, according to Bloomberg. The Defense Department had labeled the shipping firm a critical company. “To say that this process was hidden behind the wall of intense interagency bureaucracy would be an understatement,” Hill said. “I don’t find a rationale for YRC to be essential to national security.

Eric Swalwell to be removed from the Intelligence Committee after receiving an FBI briefing on the California Democrat's friendship with an accused Chinese spy.  On Friday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Speaker Nancy Pelosi were briefed by the FBI on Swalwell's relationship with Fang Fang, also known as Christine Fang. After leaving the closed-door briefing, McCarthy delivered a strong statement to reporters. 'It only raised more questions.

That's the one question that was answered: he should not be on Intel.' Pelosi remained silent following the briefing. Last week, she expressed support for her caucus member, saying 'I don't have any concern about Mr. Swalwell.'

    By MICHAEL R.

Prosecutors highlighted Maxwell's divorce discussion in a 33-page response Friday to her lawyers' renewed pitch to spring her from a federal lockup in Brooklyn, where she awaits trial on charges she recruited at least three teen girls for Epstein to sexually abuse in the mid-1990s. Born into wealth and high society as the daughter of a British publishing tycoon, Maxwell is now awakened frequently by guards to make sure she is breathing and her lawyers say she faces increased risk of contracting COVID-19 behind bars.

    President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team reportedly only allowed a limited number of journalists to participate in its weekly press briefing Friday. According to Fox News, officials on Biden’s team called on reporters from CNN, PBS, Politico, The Washington Post and The New York Times, but stonewalled the rest. Apparently frustrated with the refusal to engage with the press, some journalists used the chat function in Zoom to demand more access. “Any chance you can take a few more questions?” Zeke Miller from The Associated Press asked. “Hey guys, there [sic] tons of folks looking to ask questions and since this is being done once a week, could we PLEASE go longer or at least hold more frequent briefings,” pleaded The Daily Beast reporter Sam Stein. “Is there a point in saying we want to ask questions if you only call on the same small group every week?” White House reporter...
    As Republicans demand to know the extent of Rep. Eric Swalwell's relationship with suspected Chinese spy Fang Fang, questions about what the California lawmaker knew (and when) remain unanswered. Starting in at least 2012, Fang began cultivating a relationship with Swalwell during his time as a Dublin City, California, council member. Photos obtained by Axios show the two together at a student outreach event in October of that year. U.S. officials believe Fang was able to make contact with Democratic politicians due to her leadership positions in student organizations such as the Chinese Student Association and Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs while she was enrolled at California State University East Bay. Those early contacts with Swalwell turned into a substantial relationship, culminating in the two holding fundraisers together for his 2014 reelection campaign. According to Axios, Swalwell was informed of federal investigators' belief that Fang was...
    The Biden transition team were asked no questions from journalists about Hunter Biden in its weekly briefing Friday, and they only allowed a limited number of reporters to speak.  Biden officials called on five reporters in Friday's Zoom briefing, from the New York Times, CNN, Washington Post, PBS and Politico, and ignored questions from Fox News and others.  Towards the end of the brief questioning, other reporters grew frustrated and started using the "chat" function to pressure Biden officials to provide more access. JOE BIDEN CLAIMS 'FOUL PLAY' WHILE DEFENDING SON HUNTER BUT SAYS HE'S 'NOT CONCERNED' "Hey guys, there tons of folks looking to ask questions and since this is being done once a week, could we PLEASE go longer or at least hold more frequent briefings," Sam Stein from the Daily Beast wrote in the chat.  "Any chance you can take a few more questions?  There are a lot of...
    After a disappointing 2019-20 campaign, can the Philadelphia 76ers bounce back under new head coach Doc Rivers and new team president Daryl Morey? The Philadelphia 76ers entered the 2019-20 NBA season on the shortlist of title favorites. Nine months later, the Boston Celtics demoralized them with a first-round playoff sweep. There’s no nice way to say it, but Harris is destined to be overpaid for the duration of his deal.

    TYSON FURY has accused Anthony Joshua of ducking questions about fighting the Gypsy King next year. The pair are expected to do battle in the ring twice in 2021. 2Fury appeared on The Jonathan Ross ShowCredit: Rex Features But Joshua, 31, was coy after Saturday night's ninth round win over Kubrat Pulev. Fury, 32, isn't normally one for subtleties, and his appearance alongside Dame Joan Collins, Maya Jama and Russell Kane on the Jonathan Ross Show was no different. Quizzed by Ross, 60, the WBC champ said: "He was asked the question, 'Do you want to fight Tyson Fury?' very plain and simple, and he never answered the question. "It was a simple yes or no answer wasn't it? Then they said, 'Do you think you're the best heavyweight in the world?' and he went [holds hands up]. "Didn't answer the question.

    Given that Cyberpunk 2077’s newfound PSN situation is somewhat unprecedented in the gaming industry, you may have lingering questions regarding your existing copy of the game (or your soon-to-be-returned one.) Fortunately, we have answers. Can I get a refund? Yes. Both Sony and Microsoft are offering refunds on Cyberpunk 2077, no questions asked. Just follow the links, though note that it may take a few days to process in full. Retailers like GameStop, however, are refusing refunds per company policy. Will my copy still work? If you don’t request and receive a refund, your game—whether digital or physical—will still function the way it normally would. The delisting only applies to the future sale of digital copies of the game on PSN, as Microsoft is continuing to stock it. Physical copies are still being sold by brick and mortar stores, and those will continue to work as usual. Granted, anyone...
    During a Friday appearance on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced he is getting his briefing with the FBI regarding Rep. Eric Swalwell’s (D-CA) reported ties to Chinese spy Christine Fang after being stonewalled twice. “I’ve never been briefed on this. I learned about this the same time you did, and in that meantime, I have asked for a briefing, and twice the FBI has canceled the briefing that they had scheduled with me in the last week. Today, I will get a briefing,” McCarthy advised. McCarthy went on to say that the report raises many questions, such as what do the Chinese have on the Democratic Party and how did Swalwell end up on the Intelligence Committee. “And what’s important to me is it raises so many more questions,” he stated. “What do the communist Chinese have on the Democrats that is so powerful...

    Mike Huckabee slammed the mainstream media for only lobbing "softball" questions at President-elect Joe Biden while Hunter Biden is under federal investigation for his taxes and overseas business dealings.  During an interview with liberal comedian Stephen Colbert that aired Thursday night, Biden expressed "confidence" in his son and claiming "foul play" was involved in the allegations, adding "it is what it is." The interview then moved on with no follow-up questions. HUNTER BIDEN ASSOCIATE TEXTS HINT AT PUSH TO ‘GET JOE INVOLVED,’ MAKE IT LOOK LIKE ‘TRULY FAMILY BUSINESS’ "He doesn't sit down with any hard-hitting journalists because there aren't any that are going to ask him the tough questions," the Fox News contributor and former presidential candidate told "Fox & Friends" Friday.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., wondered Friday why Democrats "can not admit that China is an adversary to the United States." "What do the communist Chinese have on the Democrats that is so powerful, so powerful that they focused on a person when he was a city council member, bundled money for him to become a member of Congress," McCarthy told "Fox & Friends," adding that he will soon be briefed by the FBI on the matter after the initial meeting was abruptly canceled. "I will not give up," he said.  Calling for the removal of Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., from the House Intelligence Committee, McCarthy said the Democrats' tendency to side against Republicans on matters pertaining to China "raises so many more questions."  "This person got on to the intel committee. Did somebody lobby for him? And in his first year, his committee was overseeing the CIA? And then...
    Port Charles police commissioner Jordan Ashford will face some tough questions during Friday’s episode of General Hospital. Spoilers from the sneak peek shared via Twitter tease that her husband Curtis will want to know the truth and she probably can’t avoid answering this time. After months of covering it up, it’s finally been revealed to Trina, Portia, and others that Taggert didn’t really die earlier this year. Jordan was the key person involved in faking his death, but she never told Curtis. Now, Jordan is hoping that having Mac arrest Taggert can keep him safe from Cyrus. Curtis arrived at the PCPD and was understandably stunned to see Taggert there. General Hospital teasers indicate that he will quickly presume that his wife was involved in whatever went down. It appears that Curtis and Jordan will head to her office where they can have some privacy. She will look on the...
    When the Federal Communications Commission announced $312 million in grants for one relatively small company to build broadband in Minnesota earlier this month, it stirred controversy among those who worry the internet provider can’t deliver what it promised.  Now that squabble over the company, LTD Broadband, has spilled over into Minnesota’s own grant program for development of high-speed internet. The Minnesota Rural Broadband Coalition — made up of internet developers, local governments and other groups like Mayo Clinic — sent a letter Wednesday to state officials asking them to award grant money to build broadband in areas expected to be served through the federal program, in part because they have so little confidence in LTD Broadband. Some internet companies said the state asked them to submit bids for cash outside of the federal program zones. Minnesota officials haven’t made a decision on how to proceed, but the state must navigate...

    Lawmakers on a financial oversight committee questioned Tennessee Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey and other officials Thursday about a $26.5 million no-bid contract for COVID-19 testing supplies that turned out to be unusable. The contract, signed by state officials May 1, was with Utah-based health care startup Nomi Health. The state withdrew from the contract June 12 after the coronavirus test kits did not measure up to state standards. Tennessee remained responsible for $5.9 million to pay for some personal protective equipment, technology and a management fee. The legislative Fiscal Review Committee, led by Rep. Ron Travis, R-Dayton, and Sen. Todd Gardenhire, R-Chattanooga, met Thursday to question Piercey, Tennessee Emergency Management Director Patrick Sheehan and state procurement officers about the contract. Piercey said the contract was struck amid significant national and international competition for COVID-19 testing supplies and personal protective equipment. Nomi Health, Piercey said, was the only...

    Sen. Tom Cotton demanded President-elect Joe Biden be more transparent about his family's financial dealings. During an interview Thursday night with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, the Arkansas Republican called on Biden to hold a press conference to answer questions about the controversy being fueled by federal authorities conducting a tax investigation into his son Hunter. "I'd like Joe Biden to come clean entirely about what was going on with, not just his son, but his brother and his sister. His entire family has trading on his name and his public life for 50 years," Cotton began, applauding Carlson for interviewing Hunter Biden's former business associate Tony Bobulinski. "Joe Biden should have a press conference and address all this." Cotton said President Trump, shortly before his inauguration in 2017, took questions from reporters, including about Russian interference in the 2016 election. "It was a classic. He denounced the...

    General Hospital spoilers hint that the episode airing on Friday, December 18 will be an intense one. As many viewers had suspected, it was finally revealed during Thursday’s show that Laura, Cyrus, and Martin are all related and share the same biological father. There is more with this on the way on Friday. According to SheKnows Soaps, Martin will have some questions for his brother. It was only a few days ago that General Hospital fans received a confirmation that Cyrus and Martin were brothers. Their mother Florence had been living at the house that Laura, Curtis, and Jordan explored, but she was now in a care facility. Teasers had signaled that someone problematic would walk in on Laura after she snuck into Florence’s room. It wasn’t Cyrus at this point, but Martin. Laura hid in a closet and listened to him talk to his mother, and then left him...

Eric Swalwell refused to answer questions Thursday on whether he intends to step down from the House Intelligence Committee over his ties to a suspected Chinese spy. Calls for the California congressman to resign from the elite panel are gaining steam after Axios revealed that month that Swalwall was targeted by suspected spy Fang Fang before she fled the country in 2015.

    Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., extended his ongoing silence over the nature of his past relationship with a suspected Chinese spy. Ever since Axios reported that a Chinese national named Christine Fang or Fang Fang had ties to a number of political figures including Swalwell -- and had sexual interactions with at least two Midwestern mayors -- Swalwell has dodged questions about his history with her. MCCARTHY CALLS SWALWELL A 'NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT,' SAYS PELOSI, SCHIFF MUST REMOVE HIM FROM INTEL COMMITTEE Fox News caught up with Swalwell outside his home Thursday and he ignored all questions, including one about Fang. This comes after his office declined to comment on the nature of their relationship beyond what they had told Axios and then ignored subsequent requests for information. "Rep.

    Some state lawmakers said they were left with more questions than answers after a nearly four-hour hearing focused on a COVID-19 outbreak at a state-run veteran’s home that killed at least 33 residents. Officials from the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs were on hand to answer questions Wednesday. A spokesperson for the Illinois Department of Public Health said department officials sent consultant Dr. Avery Hart, but he couldn't answer all the questions posed by committee members. “I wasn’t in the mix at that point so I don’t think I would comment,” Hart said. “I know there’s an independent investigation by the inspector general to clarify the timeline.” Hart had to leave the nearly four-hour meeting early. Republicans on the committee demanded to know more about the timeline of the outbreak and the state’s response to it. In particular, state Sen. Sue Rezin, R-Morris, wanted to know...

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland lawmakers say they will continue investigating a six-figure severance package and large expenses that a former chief of staff to Gov. Larry Hogan received as he transitioned from a state agency to the governor’s office. Roy McGrath repeatedly declined to answer questions before a legislative panel on Wednesday. Sen. Clarence Lam says McGrath should be “ashamed” for expenses incurred while “globetrotting” and receiving $233,000 severance when he moved from the Maryland Environmental Service to the governor’s office. The senator says many faced economic hardships during the pandemic while he incurred the expenses. Hogan says he had no involvement with the payment. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press.

    Washington (CNN)The deliberations among President-elect Joe Biden's tight circle of advisers about whom he should nominate as attorney general have emerged as some of the more complicated of the transition, sources familiar with the process tell CNN, with possible investigations into President Donald Trump, a federal probe into Hunter Biden's business dealings and pressure from powerful outside groups hanging over the process.The discussions inside the transition team are down to a series of front-runners, people familiar with the search tell CNN, with Judge Merrick Garland and Alabama's Sen. Doug Jones seen as the two most likely choices. A final decision is not expected until next week.In Garland, Biden's team sees someone who is unimpeachable and politically independent at a time when rebuilding trust in the Department of Justice will be critical and a number of thorny political issues could cross the attorney general's desk. Jones, on the other hand, has...

    Georgia Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler refused to answer press questions about the fact that Joe Biden  was president-elect not once, not twice, but five times in the span of two minutes. During an outdoor press gaggle on Wednesday, Loeffler was asked about “Is it accurate to say you haven’t decided on that yet?” in what was an allusion to Biden’s victory in the Electoral College. Duck #1: “Look, I haven’t looked at it,” Loeffler claimed, about the results of the presidential race that has dominated the news cycle. She then referred to the date that Congress certifies the Electoral College vote. “January 6 is a long way off there’s a lot to play out between now and then.” Then, a reporter pointed out that the leader of her Senate GOP caucus, Mitch McConnell, has publicly acknowledged Biden is the president-elect and called to congratulate him, asking Loeffler if she plans on doing the same anytime...

They probably develop some degree of immunity but how strong that immunity is or for how long it lasts is still not understood. Therefore, people who have been infected in the past should eventually be immunized but not until they have fully recovered from their illness.

    GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida forward Keyontae Johnson’s prognosis is “trending in the right direction, but we still have a lot of questions,” the school’s athletic director said Wednesday. Scott Stricklin told WRUF radio that Johnson continues to make progress after collapsing on the court during a game at Florida State. Stricklin visited Johnson at UF Health on Tuesday afternoon. “He was actually awake. He was actually sitting up in a chair,” Stricklin said. “You could tell he’s still been sedated, so he was still a little groggy. But he thanked me for coming by. It was good to see him and sitting up. He had family in there, his parents and others.” Stricklin said he has received even better news since regarding Johnson’s recovery. “I’m told he’s even progressed a lot since then, that he’s having good conversations with his doctors, with his coaches,” Stricklin said. “He’s smiling and...
    Gov. J.B. Pritzker stands by his previous statements that House Speaker Michael Madigan needs to answer questions about the ComEd bribery scheme. Madigan, D-Chicago, hasn’t been charged by federal prosecutors, but he has been implicated time and again in criminal proceedings against five individuals and in a deferred prosecution agreement with the utility. The longtime speaker of the House has denied he’s done anything wrong. Pritzker Tuesday reacted to the House Special Investigating Committee concluding their work Monday without having the speaker testify to ComEd’s admissions it paid $1.3 million to Madigan associates in an influence scheme. “I’m really disappointed that with the forum of the special committee that that was not taken up as an opportunity to answer questions,” Pritzker said. “But, listen, the speaker can hold a press conference today. He could call one right now and answer questions and I hope that he would.”...

    The Raptors managed to retain Fred VanVleet in free agency, but will that be enough to keep them in the hunt for an Eastern Conference title? Masai Ujiri and the Raptors front office quietly had a lot of work to do this offseason. They managed to retain Fred VanVleet which was crucial for the team’s hopes of remaining amongst the Eastern Conference elite. Unfortunately, losing strong veterans like Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol have the Raptors’ roster looking weaker than it did just a season ago. In particular, that means he needs to shoot the ball much better from inside the arc. There’s no reason a player with his athletic gifts should shoot 45.3 percent from 2. If he can push that statistic back over the 50 percent plateau then Toronto should see a major boost in their offensive efficiency.4. What can OG Anunoby add to his offensive game?Unlike Siakam,...

    The Knicks avoided making any big mistakes in free agency, but did the front office do enough to contend for the playoffs this season? Tom Thibodeau’s arrival in New York is supposed to bring respectability to the Knicks. What’s unclear is whether or not he’ll have the talent required to push this roster into the postseason. 3. Which young player will inexplicably end up in Tom Thibodeau’s dog house first?Kevin Knox has shown flashes of the talent required to become a decent NBA starter, but his game is poorly suited for the way Thibodeau wants this team to operate. There’s a strong chance he gets benched in favor of Reggie Bullock after a few early season defensive lapses. He could turn into the poster child of why Thibs is a poor fit for a young, rebuilding team. Knox needs the freedom to play through mistakes if he’s ever going to...

    Idaho health board rejects regional mask, distancing order Jennifer Granholm: Biden poised to nominate former Michigan Gov. to lead Department of Energy Three pressing questions for the College Football Playoff committee The latest College Football Playoff rankings were released on Tuesday, and they have left many pressing questions. © Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports This year is unlike any other we have seen, which is why the job of ranking teams is so difficult for the committee. The ACC, SEC and Big 12 aimed to play full conference schedules, while the Pac-12 and Big Ten started late and then endured multiple cancellations. Among Group of 5 teams, some conferences played full schedules. All the cancellations and postponements, plus the relative lack of non-conference games, has made it even more difficult than usual to compare teams. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have some serious questions for the committee we would...
    Fox News’ Sean Hannity raised questions Tuesday night about how Joe Biden could have won the election when not a lot of people showed up at his Georgia rally. Hannity told viewers in the days after November 3rd that they should not trust the results of the election. In the weeks since he’s continued casting doubt on the results and speaking with Kayleigh McEnany on his show almost every night since the election, even as the Trump team’s claims in court have been rejected time after time. The official results were certified, Republican officials in states like Georgia defended the system after attacks by Trump and his allies, and the Electoral College voted to affirm Biden’s win yesterday. Hannity opened his show Tuesday bringing up how Biden — whom he referred to as “the very frail weak cognitively struggling Joe Biden” — did not get a huge crowd in...
    Virginia Roberts maintains she had sex with the Duke of York on three occasions: in 2001 in London, in New York and on Jeffrey Epstein’s private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Little St James.

As the Mail concludes its ground-breaking forensic investigation into their claims and counter-claims, each party is left with further difficult questions to answer.

    By Samah Assad, Michele Youngerman, Dave Savini Mayor Lori Lightfoot sidestepped questions Tuesday about why city lawyers tried, in a rare and unprecedented attempt, to block a CBS 2 story from airing disturbing video that shows how police treated an innocent woman during a bad raid. Anjanette Young, a social worker, was naked and handcuffed when Chicago Police officers broke down her door and burst into her home on Feb. 21, 2019. CBS 2 first interviewed Young last November. Young said she wanted the body camera video to show the public what happened to her that day. But when she filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the video last year, the police department denied it. The department also denied a similar FOIA request by CBS 2. “I feel like they didn’t want us to have this video because they knew how bad it was,” Young said. “They...
    New York Police Department employees will not be required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, Commissioner Dermot Shea said Tuesday. "It wont be mandatory," he said, per the New York Post.

    Pregnant and lactating women were not part of the clinical trials for the COVID-19 vaccine, but most experts say it is safe for them to get vaccinated. As of Dec. 11, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) issued an interim recommendation for the Pfizer-BioNtech drug to be given to all Americans over the age of 16. According to the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the vaccines "should not be withheld from pregnant individuals who meet criteria to the recommended priority groups." The college says lactating women are also permitted to get the vaccine, even though there is no safety data on the drug in these two populations. Experts told Vogue that COVID-19 impacts pregnant women more severely increasing their risk of hospitalization three-fold. "Their risk of death is 70% higher than their non-pregnant peers," said Kelly Fradin, M.D., a New York-based pediatrician. She added pregnant healthcare workers "face...
