the decision:

    Former UFC lightweight and welterweight contender James Vick has announced his retirement from the sport of MMA. After his knockout loss to Andre Fialho this weekend under the promotion XMMA, ‘The Texecutioner’ decided to hang up the gloves due to a bilateral orbital fracture. Vick won his last fight in February 2018 as he defeated Francisco Trinaldo by unanimous decision. He was 13-1 at that point before suffering a brutal knockout loss against Justin Gaethje. This started the downfall of the promising fighter. “Thank you to anyone who has been there to support me, teach me or cheer me on along the way. I have made life long relationships in this martial arts journey I will always be so grateful for,” Vick wrote on Instagram. “It bothers me that my 3 year old son has to see his daddy with his jaw wired shut for 4 to 6 weeks because...

It had been available in the U.K. on free and pay TV. “Following careful consideration, taking account of all the facts and the broadcaster’s and audience’s rights to freedom of expression, we have decided it is appropriate to revoke the license for CGTN to...

    Democratic New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy drew praise from state Republicans Wednesday after approving an increase in indoor dining capacity for local restaurants during the coronavirus pandemic, but the role science has played in shaping state guidelines remains a matter of debate. After months of pressure, New Jersey will allow restaurants, bars, gyms, and casinos to operate at 35% of their indoor capacity beginning on Friday, so long as they adhere to health and safety protocols, and eliminate a rule requiring establishments to close by 10 p.m. ET. The decision was hailed as a victory by critics who have argued that Murphy's guidelines were arbitrary and harmful to struggling small businesses. While Murphy cited declining case totals and a downtick in transmission rates in New Jersey in his decision to expand indoor dining capacity, state officials provided few specifics on the data and scientific evidence that factored into the shift....
    [Ed. note: Spoilers ahead for the finale of season 5 of The Expanse.] The Expanse season 5 came to a close on Feb. 3, and in the process killed off one of its most beloved characters. For many fans who’ve been watching the science fiction series since its premiere on the SyFy channel in 2015, that death may have come as a surprise — unless they were keeping tabs on the show’s real-world production. Ahead of the episode airing, News Brig spoke with showrunner Naren Shankar about how it all went down. Also on the line were Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, who created the franchise and helped write this season. The pair wrote the novels which the television series is based on, collaborating under the pen name James S.A. Corey. In June, accusations of sexual harassment and sexual assault were levied against Cas Anvar, who plays Martian pilot and...
    Edson Barboza becoming frustrated with the UFC By: Daniel Cunningham February 3, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditOne of the most exciting fighters in the UFC over the last decade has been Edson Barboza (21-9). Barboza made his debut with the promotion back in 2010 and has had some highlight moments throughout his career. When Barboza first came on to the UFC scene, he looked like a fighter that was destined to be a champion. However, while he’s always been considered a top contender, he never was able to make that jump to the championship level. He’s had some opportunities in title eliminator matchups, but he was never able to get the job done. In 2020, Barboza decided to switch things up for the benefit of his career. He decided to drop from the UFC‘s lightweight division to featherweight. He made his debut in May...
    Getty The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ship at Raymond James Stadium fires its cannons during Bucs home games. While the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will become the first team ever to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium on Sunday, the NFL has the final say on game day experience — including the Buccaneer ship cannons. The NFL will allow the cannons to fire during the Bucs team introduction at the Super Bowl but not again that evening according to ESPN’s Jenna Laine.

    The Biden administration has delivered a blow to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the second time in as many weeks, reversing a decision by the Trump administration to remove aluminum tariffs that would have been effective February 3. President Donald Trump signed an exemption for the UAE from a 10% aluminum tariff he imposed in 2018. The move was perceived as a reward for the UAE’s peace agreement with Israel, known as the Abraham Accords. That deal opened the door to other peace and normalization agreements among Israel and the Arab states — much to the irritation of Iran. But President Joe Biden reversed that decision on Monday, claiming “imports from the U.A.E. may still displace domestic production, and thereby threaten to impair our national security.” Biden did not note the role of diplomacy in security. Last week, the Biden administration also targeted the UAE, suspending arms sales that...
    Two African-American former Brooklyn Nets employees are claiming they were dismissed because of racial bias and are now hoping to form a labor union for team attendants in partnership with the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA). On Instagram, former Nets team attendants Juwan Williams and Eddie Bolden said they had both received positive reviews during their tenure with the team, but were surprised to learn on November 17 that they would not be asked to return this season. They were the only two attendants who did not return in 2020-21, according to the New York Daily News. Williams and Bolden were not the only African-American team attendants with the club, which continues to employee several black staffers in that role. 'Myself and my colleague have reason to believe that we were terminated due to racial bias, as well as for our beliefs and stance on the Black Lives Matter movement,'...
    Nearly one year after winning a Super Bowl as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, offensive lineman-turned-doctor Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is opening up about his decision to temporarily step away from football in 2020 in order to work on the front lines of the pandemic in his native Quebec. The 29-year-old has been celebrated for enlisting as an orderly at an extended-care facility in Montreal, and was even named one of four recipients of Sports Illustrated's Sportsperson of the year award in 2020. However, with the Chiefs back in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Duvernay-Tardif admitted to the Washington Post that he may end up regretting the move in spite of his good intentions. 'It was never black or white,' said Duvernay-Tardif, who was speaking before the Chiefs' AFC title game win over Buffalo on January 24. 'As the season progressed and the stakes are higher, I do miss football...

    Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev on Friday refuted the 'conspiracy theory' that hedge funds prompted his company to halt trading on GameStop.  During an interview with Yahoo Finance, Tenev was asked to set the record straight on why the mobile brokerage firm made the decision to restrict trades involving GameStop shares as prices surged last week.  'Oh, on that conspiracy theory, I think I've over and over again said that it's not true,' Tenev said.  'Our decision to temporarily restrict customers from buying certain securities had nothing to do with a market maker or a market participant or anyone like that putting pressure on us or asking us to do that.  'It was entirely about market dynamics and clearinghouse deposit requirements, as per regulation,' he added.  Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev (right) on Friday refuted the 'conspiracy theory' that hedge funds prompted his company to halt trading on GameStop Calling the...
    Tom Brady told a funny story about the time he was drafted by the New England Patriots. By now, everyone knows the Patriots selected Brady with the No. 199 overall pick in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft. Brady told reporters Thursday he didn’t initially know where New England was. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "I didn't even know where New England was when I got picked by New England – that was always a funny story. They called me and said, 'You've been picked by New England.' I was like, 'That's amazing! Where is New England?' I landed in Providence [Rhode Island], which really screwed me up because that's not even in Massachusetts," Brady said. While recalling his 20 years with the Patriots, he said choosing to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was a great decision. SUPER BOWL LV ANTICIPATION FEELS DIFFERENT, CHIEFS...
    Though many Sussex fans had been eagerly awaiting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s return to the United Kingdom, it appears that they might have to wait a little bit longer after rumors suggested that the former Suits actress will not return to the U.K. in the near future. According to The Daily Mail, Harry still hopes to visit to his native country in order to see his family in a trip currently scheduled for late spring or early summer. In addition, the duke allegedly hopes to be present at the July 1 unveiling of the Princess Diana statue in Kensington Palace. However, it has been claimed that it is “unlikely” his wife will not be joining him. Sources have insisted that the reason behind the decision is “personal and practical” and should not be considered a “snub” to the royal family. “It looks likely it will be just [Harry],” said...

    Facebook’s Oversight Board, the independent body empowered to review the social network’s most complex platform moderation decisions, is now accepting public comments on the company’s decision to “indefinitely” ban former President Donald Trump in the aftermath of the US Capitol attack on January 6th. The two posts in question include the one-minute video Trump posted to his account on January 6th repeating false claims that the US election was stolen from him and offering words of sympathy to the Capitol rioters, some of whom were, at that moment, continuing to endanger the lives of Congress members and Capitol police. The second is a written post in which Trump wrote, “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long.

    After the Facebook oversight board recently overturned four cases deemed a violation of the company's policy, former U.S. Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker remains skeptical of the body's independence. "Well, I know that this board was hand-selected by Facebook. And so to suggest that it's independent of Facebook, I think would, you know, not pass the smell test," Whitaker told FOX Business’ "Mornings with Maria" on Friday. Whitaker said that Facebook’s oversight board has some responsibility to try to apply freedom of speech values when reviewing violations. Whitaker went on to say, "And the further it gets away, the more speech that is suppressed, the more content that is taken down and the more, you know, sort of companies that are de-platformed and lose large followings, for example, like President Trump's Facebook page, I think this is going to really test the independence of this board because some of these actions can't be...
    (CNN)On Thursday, Rep. Jim Jordan took a pass on the best chance he is likely to ever have to serve in the Senate.The firebrand Ohio Republican, who has become a national conservative hero for his bulldog demeanor and unapologetic (and unwavering) support for former President Donald Trump, would have been the clear favorite to be the Republican nominee in the open-seat race to replace retiring Sen. Rob Portman. But he decided not to run.Which raises one simple question: Why?After all, the Senate is generally speaking seen as more prestigious and a better launching pad to national office. And from a purely logistical perspective, the Senate terms are six years rather than the two-year terms in the House -- meaning you don't have to constantly be preparing for the next campaign.Well, let's start with what Jordan's own office said about why he wasn't running for Senate.

    Ricki Lake has revealed how shaving her head helped her to find love, while freeing her from her secret decades-long battle with hair loss that left her feeling suicidal.  The 52-year-old actress made the decision to buzz off all her hair in January last year, a bold move that she shared with the world on Instagram - where she also opened up about her hair loss struggles, which she had kept hidden for decades, while behind-the-scenes, it was slowly destroying her confidence.  Although she admits that shaving her head was an 'impulsive' decision, Ricki now says she couldn't be happier about doing it - revealing to DailyMail.com that the 'freedom' she felt after finally sharing her hair loss story restored her self-confidence and eventually led her to find love with the 'perfect' man.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Former Bears linebacker Sam Acho knows about defense. He’s also big on social justice and making real changes like turning a West Side liquor store into a food mart. On Thursday, CBS 2’s Matt Zahn talked with Acho about the lack of minority hires in the NFL. The Texans were the only team, out of seven openings, to hire a Black head coach – David Culley – making just three total in the league. Zahn asked Acho what needs to happen for real change. “It seems like a lot of people love to fit in, love to pretend, and love to fake. I think there are a lot of owners out there that want to make the right decision, but sometimes the right decision isn’t always the easy decision,” Acho said, “and so I think being you – letting the world see you as a...
    Robinhood CEOs Baiju Bhatt and Vlad Tenev.Source: Robinhood This is a breaking news story. Check back for updates. Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev spoke to CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin Thursday evening. Amid a wild week of speculative retail trading, Robinhood on Thursday restricted trading in thirteen equities, including GameStop and AMC Entertainment. The free stock trading pioneer only allowed clients to sell positions, not open news ones, in certain securities, raised margin requirements, and even said  it would close out some positions automatically if the client was at risk of not having the necessary collateral. Robinhood then said after the closing bell Thursday that it would allow limited buying of restricted securities on Friday. The broker's decision was met with outrage from its band of loyal retail investors; however, Robinhood explained that the move was made to comply with capital requirements mandated by the SEC for broker dealers.

    Pitcher Curt Schilling claimed his political beliefs kept him out of the baseball Hall of Fame in an interview Wednesday with Outkick. Schilling also discussed his decision not to be on the ballot for his last year of eligibility. “I wanted it over,” Schilling told host Clay Travis. “I didn’t want to go through it again.” “You are talking about a group of people who are 85% white and 90% male — and they are lecturing me on diversity and racism,” Schilling said of the judges. Schilling and Travis both agreed that if Schilling had never made public comments about his political beliefs that he would have been voted into the Hall of Fame. “The hatred for President Trump and conservatives runs deep,” he added.

    New York's Attorney General has accused the Cuomo administration of undercounting the number of people who died from COVID-19 in nursing homes by as much as 50 percent.  In a report released on Thursday, AG Letitia James said that the New York State Health Department only ever counted people who physically died in nursing homes, rather than people who contracted the disease in nursing homes but then died in hospital too.  According to the state department's data, 8,500 people died have from COVID in nursing homes to date. But when using the Attorney General's estimate that 50 percent more died, that number goes up to more than 12,000.  The report also says that Cuomo's March directive that nursing homes had to accept COVID-19 positive patients 'may' have contributed to a higher number of infection, but that it is impossible to directly attribute it to him.  Instead, her office is focusing on...
    Reuters January 28, 2021 0 Comments U.S. Senator Mitt Romney has thrown his support behind the Tokyo Olympics this summer, saying the Games should be held with a limit on spectators at venues and would serve as an inspiration for the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the Games set to open in less than six months’ time, Japan is wrestling with a third wave of novel coronavirus infections and has declared a state of emergency in major cities in a bid to tame the outbreak. The International Olympic Committee and local organisers have pledged their full commitment to staging the event, though recent surveys show people in Japan largely oppose holding the Games this summer over fears the influx of athletes will worsen the pandemic. “Hold the Tokyo Olympic Games,” 2012 Republican presidential nominee Romney tweeted. “Athletes have trained a lifetime to be at their peak. Limit in-person...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Some of those who survived the Holocaust are still able to share their stories. CBS4’s Jessica Vallejo spoke with one South Florida woman who escaped the Nazis, spending years on the run. “He would never talk about it. He would never tell us. He says you cannot imagine,” said Ruthmarie Goerke-Matthysse. On Holocaust Remembrance Day, Goerke-Matthysse thought of her father and his time in German concentration camps. “He was in politics so and that was awful. It most have been terrible,” said Goerke-Matthysse. Her father, Stanley Matthysse, was a journalist in Germany and an outspoken opponent of Adolf Hitler. He found himself in a concentration camp on three separate occasions. A photo of Stanley Matthysse. (Courtesy of Ruthmarie Goerke-Matthysse) “He knew what was going to happen.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Parents, students, and staff of Pittsburgh Public Schools are holding their breath as they wait for a final decision on when they can return to the classroom. Tonight, the school board will decide if students and teachers will head back to the classroom for in-person learning before or after spring break. The decision comes after two nights of public hearings where the board heard the opinions of many parents, students, and teachers. It’s a tough decision for school leaders to make because some parents say that they want their kids back in school not only for their education but also for their mental health and well-being. Many teachers and staff say they want to get the COVID-19 vaccine before they walk inside a school building. A resolution was presented during last week’s agenda review meeting and would postpone students’ return to the...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — While many Chicago-area restaurants are re-opening with limited dine-in service, there are some that choose a different approach. CBS 2’s Jeremy Ross takes us to one business that’s putting caution before cash during the pandemic. Katherine Valleau, co-owner of Exit Strategy Brewing Company, says “everybody wants to get past this”-referring to the yearlong outbreak of COVID-19. But, she believes, it’s still too soon to reopen her business for indoor drinking and dining. Restaurants hosted limited reopenings this past weekend, meaning about 25% of capacity for indoor dining. But the brewing company is turning down the potential business of about 25 people indoors at a time, foregoing thousands of additional customers per week. “I’m not ready to risk the health and safety of my staff that is trusting me to keep the place safe,” Valleau said. “This is not a business decision, this doesn’t appear to be a...
    These are times of considerable change in the film industry … and Nolan and Warner are protagonists. Some so significant that they are destined to change the world of cinema as we know it. The pandemic accelerated the transition in theater projection and the arrival of great streaming premieres. Those most affected are the talent behind and in front of the cameras. After months ago HBO Max made the decision to equate the projection of cinemas to streaming, several critical voices were raised in Hollywood. One of the most important was that of director Christopher Nolan, who summed up the general malaise that the decision provoked. For the British filmmaker, the Warner maneuver hindered the return to theaters, but directly involved the work of creative teams. His stance made it clear that the study strategy was neither convenient nor satisfactory. Nolan has already warned and it seems that he will...

    Matt LaFleur explained his controversial decision to kick a late field goal and all it will do is make Packers fans sick. The last thing a head coach wants to do is make a decision that costs his team a game. Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur made a controversial decision in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that had fans losing their minds. The play that will have fans talking all offseason came with just over two minutes to go in the fourth quarter. The Packers faced a fourth-and-goal from the 8-yard line after Aaron Rodgers threw three straight incompletions. The score stood at 31-23, and while the Packers had all their timeouts, a touchdown was needed and needed fast. As we know now, LaFleur opted for the field goal and the Packers lost 31-26. The explanation he provided for the decision is only...
    It wasn’t a bold strategy, Cotton, and it didn’t pay off for them. It wasn’t Peter La Fleur, but rather Matt LaFleur (no relation) who baffled inquiring minds during the NFC championship game on Sunday afternoon. Facing a 31-23 deficit with just over two minutes left in regulation, the Packers coach elected to go for a field goal rather than trying to tie the game up at 31 with a touchdown and 2-point conversion. Green Bay never got the ball back after a Mason Crosby chip shot, and the Buccaneers walked away with a 31-26 win.

    Instead of taking a chance and putting his team in a position to win the NFC Championship Game, Matt LaFleur played things safe and it cost him.  Matt LaFleur is going to be second-guessing himself for a while following the Green Bay Packers’ heartbreaking loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game. Down 31-23 late in the fourth quarter, the Packers marched down the field and had a shot at potentially tying things up. However, Aaron Rodgers couldn’t find the end zone and the team faced a 4th-and-goal from the Tampa Bay 8-yard line. Instead of going for it with a little over two minutes left in the action, LaFleur inexplicably decided to kick a field goal to cut his team’s deficit to 31-26. LaFleur’s thinking was to make it a five-point game and hope this defense could make a stop. That didn’t happen. Final. #TBvsGB pic.twitter.com/pdelSseDYH...

    Dutch cyclist Tom Dumoulin (Jumbo-Visma) temporarily leaves the competition to find his “way” as an athlete and taking “time” in his own life, after worrying too much about others and not himself, a decision that surprised the world of sport this Saturday. “I made the decision on Friday; the team supports me in that and it makes me feel very good.

    New York : Relief on the way for certain immigrants. Photo: John Moore / . By: Hector Benítez Cañas January 14, 2021 To analyze the decision of a Miami Immigration Court, presided over by Judge Timothy M. Cole, it is important to cite the legal authority used to reach its conclusions. The Immigration Court walks through two pronouncements of the Supreme Court in the decision “Jennings vs. Rodriguez ”in 2018 and that of the Attorney General in the MS- case of 2019. In both, two important points were established: 1) Those who are detained at the Southwest border of the United States are detained under section 235 (b) of the Law of Immigration; 2) That the exclusive avenue for the release of inadmissible applicants for immigration admission is the parole, established in section 212 (d) (5) (A) of the same Immigration Law.

    “If the crows in the Tower of London get lost or fly away, the crown will fall, and so will Britain.” Between Tower Bridge and the city, the Tower of London is one of the most important tourist and historical sites in the British capital. Construction began in 1066 by Norman conquerors, and the fort gained its main tower in 1078 on the orders of William the Conqueror. In turn, the Tower of London has undergone many changes in its history, whether palace, royal residence, military garrison, prison, arsenal or even a museum. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988, it now features crown jewels and is seen passing by millions of tourists each year (well… of course outside the Kovit period).

    Jared Goff will start at quarterback for the Rams in their NFC divisional round playoff game against the Packers on Saturday. Goff has not started since the Rams’ Week 16 defeat to the Seahawks. He suffered a broken right thumb in the game and underwent surgery the next day. NFL PLAYOFFS: Divisional round picks against the spread John Wolford, who played in Week 17 and then again in the playoff opener against Seattle, took a blow to the head last weekend. Wolford was not able to return — which required Goff to step up, still nursing his thumb — and the 25-year-old has now been ruled out against the Packers, the team confirmed Thursday. That means a return for Goff, who completed just 9 of 19 passes from the bench last time out but threw for a touchdown and no interceptions in an upset win. McVay: QB John Wolford will...
    I have no doubt that the expulsion of Donald Trump from Twitter it was not an easy decision, and that from Jack Dorsey to the last employee they have had to face it trying to cover all possible points of view. And it is that although the events of the Capitol made it necessary to take extreme measures, and many other online services have joined these actions, there is something deeply sinister in silencing the voice of who, still today, is the president of the United States. Even when you have given well-deserved reasons for it. Aware of this and of the controversy that has arisen, the co-founder and director of Twitter Jack Dorsey has decided to explain the reasons that led the social network to make this complicated decision. And something I appreciate is that instead of making a closed defense free of self-criticism, he admits that he sets...
    Conservative commentator and One America News Network anchor Jack Posobiec claimed on Thursday that Donald Trump will soon decide whether to pardon Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, and Ross Ulbricht. “Can confirm the President has now seen this poll. His response, ‘We’ll see by the weekend,'” he tweeted. Posobiec was referring to a Twitter poll he posted earlier in the day that asked Trump supporters whether the outgoing head of state should pardon the trio. The results as of Thursday evening show that 95 percent of respondents — over 67,000 thus far — said yes. Assange is currently imprisoned in Belmarsh prison in London, England — a facility typically reserved for seasoned criminals. As reported by The New York Times, supporters of the WikiLeaks founder are currently engaged in a last-minute effort to secure the journalist’s release. According to the publication, Assange’s allies are rallying supporters of all political ideologies and...
    New Jersey is giving smokers access to the COVID-19 vaccine before the general public because, its health officials say, smokers are more likely to get gravely ill and quicker.  There are two million smokers in New Jersey. As of Wednesday, they are now eligible to get the vaccine along with people over the age of 65, and people who have underlying health conditions.  Health officials have defended the decision, saying their data proves that people who smoke get sicker more quickly from COVID than those who don't.  It is unclear how they will check whether or not a person is a smoker when they show up to receive the vaccine.  To date, there has not been any widespread study done on how smokers are worse affected by COVID.  New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy last week touring a COVID-19 vaccination site in Rockaway. As of Wednesday, smokers get access to the...
    Fox Business anchor Stuart Varney pressed former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow on the hypothetical question of whether he would accept the Presidential Medal of Freedom if offered by President Donald Trump. Tebow, however, refused to answer the question. The two were discussing New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s decision to not accept the award from the president, who has come under heavy fire of late for his actions surrounding the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. After asking Tebow, an outspoken Christian, for his take on Belichick’s decision and not getting a direct answer, Varney asked, “If the medal of freedom has been offered to you, would you take it?” WATCH: “I like the persistence of it in trying to get to the hard question,” Tebow responded, laughing. “I think there’s so much right now that you have to weigh in looking at everything that’s going on....

    Madison Summers January 14, 2021 0 Comments Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey believes President Donald Trump’s ban on Twitter sets a “dangerous” precedent but that it is was the “right decision.” Dorsey expressed on Wednesday evening that he does not “celebrate” or “feel pride” that Trump’s personal account is permanently banned from Twitter — or “how we got here.” “I believe this was the right decision for Twitter,” Dorsey tweeted.

    A mother who decided with her husband to puruse 'gender creative parenting' and let their child choose their own gender, has revealed how people have accused them of 'child abuse'.  Dr Kyl Myers, who is originally from Salt Lake City but now lives in Australia with her husband Brent, told Mamamia that they've been flooded with social media comments, emails and even letters at her workplace from people who believe four-year-old Zoomer should be taken away. She explained: 'We didn't assign a binary girl-or-boy gender to our child, Zoomer, at birth; we don't disclose Zoomer's genitals to people who don't need to know.  'We used the gender-neutral pronouns they/them/their for Zoomer until they could tell us what pronouns and labels fit best; and Zoomer learns about and explores gender without stereotypical expectations or restrictions.' The couple decided to do 'regular pronoun checks' with Zoomer who told them: 'I love he/him', around...

Dorsey spoke out in series of Tweets on Wednesday musing about the permanent ban Twitter handed down last week after Trump's supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.

    President-elect Joe Biden will begin his term seeking to confirm his cabinet and seize hold of the coronavirus response while the Senate most likely moves ahead with an impeachment trial of his predecessor.   Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has decided not to use his position to bring the Senate back into session for an immediate impeachment trial – putting the start date of a trail off by days, and throwing the start of Biden's tenure into doubt.  McConnell's office confirmed Wednesday that the leader, who is reportedly infuriated with Trump following the MAGA mob that ransacked the Capitol, would not use special emergency authority to bring colleagues back to consider an impeachment article against Trump.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has 'not made a final decision on how I will vote' on impeachment, he told colleagues. He has decided not to use emergency powers to call the Senate back...

    Imran Khan might have stepped off the limelight, but he is still a darling star to many. In a career spanning less than a decade, the good-looking lad flashed his many shades on the big screen and mesmerised one and all.
