    Tyrrell Hatton had vivid memories when he returned to Bay Hill, most of them the feeling of pure iron shots on the closing holes or his heart rate as he tried to navigate 20 feet in two putts on a baked green for his first PGA Tour victory. Not to be overlooked were the ears. Hatton received an enormous ovation after he rolled in a short par putt to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational. It wasn't the loudest ever at Bay Hill, not with Tiger Woods winning eight times or Palmer hitting driver off the deck onto the 18th green in his final appearance. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM But it was the last big cheer in golf. "It's kind of hard to remember the cheers, really," Hatton said Wednesday. "We've played a lot of golf since then with obviously no fans." That's starting to change. The...

    New York will loosen restrictions on gatherings, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday at his first news conference since an investigation was announced into sexual harassment allegations against him by three women. The Democratic governor said that that limit for outdoor private gatherings will rise from 10 to 25 starting March 22. The limit for indoor gatherings in public spaces will go from 50 to 100 and the limit for outdoor public events will go from 50 to 200 on the same date, he said. In addition to the phased reopening, Cuomo said New York state is receiving an initial shipment of 164,000 doses of the newly approved Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. Three state-run vaccination sites, including one at Yankee Stadium, will temporarily shift to 24-hour operations in order to schedule appointments for the new vaccine, he said.
    Cedric The Entertainer says Bill Cosby still deserves credit for his contribution to black history and culture, despite his status as a convicted sex offender.  Cedric, 56, made the claim in an Instagram video shared last Friday, during which he honored Cosby as a part of Black History Month.  'Bill Cosby was one of the first black men we saw on TV that was truly his own boss,' Cedric wrote beneath a four minute video in which he honored the disgraced comedian.  'He taught us to know our worth in this business, he showed us how to give back to our communities and institutions, he was/ is prolific, funny and audacious.' He continued: 'Cosby ruled on damn near every platform. Thursday nights became must see TV because of him. Film, stage, books, animation, [and] recordings, all were places he reigned supreme.

    By Gabriella Borter (Reuters) - While Texas and Mississippi announced complete rollbacks of their states' COVID-19 mitigation measures this week, several governors of other Republican states have made clear they are not abandoning their mask mandates despite political pressure. The sharp decline of new daily COVID-19 cases and the rollout of vaccines in the United States have prompted state and local governments to ease business restrictions in recent weeks, with movie theaters set to open at limited capacity in New York and indoor dining resuming in San Francisco on Friday. (Graphic: https://tmsnrt.rs/2WTOZDR) However, the decline in cases plateaued last week with new infections rising in 29 out of 50 states compared with the prior week. Texas saw a 69% rise in cases in the week ended Feb. 28. Few of the rollbacks have been as sweeping as in Texas, where Governor Greg Abbott on Tuesday said the state's mask mandate...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo will relax some of the state’s limits on indoor and outdoor gatherings as officials prepare to receive the first shipments of the new Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine, which they hope will dramatically speed efforts to inoculate New Yorkers. The scandal-rocked governor announced the tweaks to the Empire State’s social distancing regulations as he made his first public remarks since two more women came forward with detailed allegations of unwanted advances from Cuomo — all of which unfolded as his administration continues to battle questions about how its policy directives exacerbated the COVID outbreaks in nursing homes last spring. “The light at the end of the tunnel is in sight, but we can’t stop driving now,” Cuomo told reporters during his 20-plus-minute lead-up to his remarks addressing the harassment scandal. “Everybody wants all restrictions gone, everyone does,” he added.

    MTV "Teen Mom 2" star Leah Messer received some positive responses from fans for her book, "Hope, Grace, & Faith." Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer received a positive response from fans for her book, Hope, Grace, & Faith. The mother-of-three had planned to go on a book tour before its May 5, 2020, release date, but it was called off because of the coronavirus pandemic.

    (CBSDFW.COM/CNN) — The end of mask mandates in Texas and Mississippi has created a dilemma for businesses: Keep such safety rules in place to protect against COVID-19 spread, as leading health officials advise, or follow the two states’ decisions and loosen restrictions. Leading U.S. grocery chains, pharmacies, retailers and auto manufacturers, including Target, Kroger, CVS, Walgreens, Best Buy, Macy’s, JCPenney, Toyota, GM and others, say they will continue to require mask wearing at their stores and facilities by both employees and customers. There are exceptions, however, and some business advocates are concerned that the end of these states’ mask mandates will create new challenges for companies and their workers. READ MORE: Texas Lt.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has admitted it did not perform contact tracing on flights that some of the earliest patients with the UK and Brazil coronavirus variants were on. In one weekly report, the federal health agency discussed a patient who traveled to the UK and came back infected with the country's highly contagious variant. However, because nearly two weeks had passed between the person's arrival and the confirmation they had the mutant strain, the CDC decided against contact tracing and just sent an informal notification to states that a variant had been detected. In another report, officials documented the first two cases of Americans infected with the variant first seen in Brazil. Once again, the CDC declined to perform m a full investigation and instead contacted individual state health departments where some passengers lived to inform them. However, the agency said that is has found...
    Spotify Joe Rogan.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Rogan’s deal with the streaming service is worth more than $100 million. The deal included moving hundreds of episodes dating from his 11 years of podcasting onto Spotify alone. Rogan...

    Amazon has redesigned its shopping app logo after some people said the logo that debuted in January resembled Hitler.  The app for the e-commerce company looks like a package with Amazon's smiling arrow logo and strip of tape across the top. The first iteration looked like a jagged piece of tape above the smile.  While some Twitter users simply saw a box with tape and the Amazon logo, others saw an image that looked like Hitler. After a few Twitter users posted about the resemblance, Amazon quietly rolled out a new app design last month, replacing the jagged tape with a square. lmao I completely missed that amazon quietly tweaked its new icon to make it look… less like hitler pic.twitter.com/Jh8UC8Yg3u— alex hern (@alexhern) March 1, 2021 In a statement to BBC News, Amazon said the first icon was trialed in a few countries before the change was made.  "We designed the...
    Many Angelenos may need their umbrellas Wednesday. A storm system brewing offshore is expected to increase clouds throughout the morning and sprinkle parts of L.A. County with rain by afternoon. But the storm will be “pretty inconsequential,” said Mike Wofford, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Oxnard. “It will be just enough to wet the ground.” Most areas that receive rain will get less than a quarter-inch. Much of northern L.A. County and the San Fernando Valley will see no rain, Wofford said. Long Beach will likely get some precipitation, as will Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties. A winter weather advisory will be in effect for the mountains in the afternoon. Between two and four inches of snow are expected to fall above 5,000 feet in the San Gabriel Mountains.

    Bloomberg EU passport certifying immunity could take months (Bloomberg) – The European Union is months away from issuing COVID-19 immunity certificates, increasing the risk of another lost tourist season for the bloc’s aviation and hotel industries Technical work on a digital platform It could take three to four months to authenticate the health status of travelers, according to a briefing note distributed to national delegations in Brussels on Tuesday. Beyond that, there are legal hurdles, the challenge of agreeing on the scope of the program and resolving thorny medical issues.

    (CBS4) – Poisonous “forever chemicals” have been found at levels higher than what some states say are safe in more than a dozen Colorado water districts. This, after massive statewide testing for the pollutants was conducted during the pandemic. The technical term for forever chemicals is PFAS, which stands for perfluoroalkyl substances, and they’re referred to as “forever chemicals,” because one they’re in the body, they don’t leave, and instead build up over time. According to the EPA, “exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse health outcomes in humans.” The EPA says two types of PFAS chemicals, PFOA and PFOS, can cause cancer, birth defects, and thyroid hormone disruption. PFAS can be found in a variety of common products, like clothing, cookware, and furniture. Pollution of those products can then lead to contamination of the water supply. While the EPA has no legal limit for PFAS in drinking water, it recommends...

    The coronavirus pandemic is forcing some Bay Area survivors of domestic violence to make a dangerous choice: stay with their abusers, or wind up on the streets. Shelters for victims of intimate partner abuse have had to reduce their capacity to combat the spread of COVID-19, exacerbating what was already a shortage of beds at a time when reports of domestic violence are on the rise. As the pandemic drags on, shelters around the region are scrambling to rent motel rooms for victims fleeing violence. But that’s getting harder as emergency funding runs out. Now, some organizations are having to do the unthinkable — turn victims away. “There are women who are continuing to stay with their abuser because they’ve got nowhere else to go,” said Ruth Darlene, founder and executive director of WomenSV, which supports domestic violence survivors in Santa Clara County. “And it feels like the calls we’re...

    (CNN Business)After losing her marketing job due to the pandemic and then gaining 40 pounds, Remi Bader, 25, began spending more time on TikTok. She built up a following by posting about clothing items not fitting her correctly and her struggle to find larger sizes in New York City stores. But in early December, Bader, who now has more than 800,000 followers, tried on a too-small pair of brown leather pants from Zara, and viewers caught a glimpse of her partially naked butt. TikTok quickly deleted the video, citing its policy against "adult nudity." It was upsetting to Bader given that her video, which was meant to promote body positivity, was taken down while videos from other TikTok users that appear sexually suggestive remain on the app. "That to me makes no sense," she said.Julia Kondratink, a 29-year-old biracial blogger who describes herself as "mid-sized," had a similarly unexpected takedown...

    An electric vehicle charging station is seen at Nio's headquarters on Jan. 31, 2021 in Hefei, Anhui Province of China.Ruan Xuefeng | Visual China Group | Getty Images BEIJING — Chinese consumers thinking about whether to buy Tesla's electric cars or local alternatives have two things at the top of their minds: price and driving range. That's according to anecdotes gathered by CNBC — conversations from around the country that do not represent qualitative research. But the comments shed light on what some consumers care about in China, the world's largest auto market. U.S.-listed Chinese car start-ups Nio, Xpeng and Li Auto saw deliveries surge last year despite a slump in the overall auto market and the coronavirus pandemic. Shares of the companies soared in 2020, but pulled back slightly this year. To be clear, Tesla is still the market leader for high-end electric vehicles in China. During a quick...

Known as ‘Right to repair’, a movement that has gained strength in recent years driven by dissatisfied consumers and fed up with having to change devices every so often, this week has marked a good point in the European Union. Specifically, the good news for European users is that they will have by law ‘right to repair’ some of their electrical items.

    Luis Alvarez | DigitalVision | Getty Images The House of Representatives' $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill includes a proposal that could help keep some seniors out of nursing homes. The bill calls for a 7.5% increase — or about $10 billion — in additional federal Medicaid matching funds for home- and community-based services. The extra funding will allow states to provide additional home- and community-based care, which could help get more people off waiting lists and prevent them from going to nursing homes. In addition, the money would also let states increase caregivers' pay and provide support to family caregivers, as well as protective equipment and training to help prevent Covid-19.

    By GRANT SCHULTE, Associated Press LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Biden administration's plan to funnel more coronavirus aid into states with greater unemployment has irked governors with lower jobless rates, even though many have economies that weren't hit as hard by the pandemic. The $1.9 trillion relief bill working its way through Congress allocates extra money to larger, mostly Democratic-run states with higher unemployment rates, while rural Midwestern and Southern states that tend to have Republican governors and better jobless numbers would benefit less. “You're penalizing people who have done the right thing," said Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, a Republican whose state has reported the nation's lowest unemployment rate over the last several months. “That's not the way you want to approach any sort of government program.” Ricketts was one of 22 governors — 21 Republicans and one Democrat — who have criticized the change in the pandemic relief proposal....

    Glee stars Jenna Ushkowitz and Kevin McHale have revealed that some of their Glee castmates 'hated' the show — and while they may not have felt that strongly themselves, they did find some of filming 'really rough' and have labeled the series 'tone deaf.' Jenna, 34, and Kevin, 32, played Tina and Artie on the popular musical show from 2009 to 2015, but they weren't always happy with the plot lines and the songs they had to perform. While Kevin admitted that he 'broke' when he had to sing The Fox by Ylvis in season five, Jenna — who is Korean-American — appeared even more put-off that she was front and center for a performance of Psy's Gangnam Style  TV stras: Jenna Ushkowitz, 34, and Kevin McHale, 32, played Tina and Artie on the popular musical show from 2009 to 2015 Hated: A 2020 podcast interview with the stars is...

    New York (CNN Business)Amazon has quietly changed the design of its new app icon, replacing the blue ribbon on top that drew some unfavorable comparisons.Users of the Amazon Shopping app will now see a brown box that resembles a parcel with a blue strip that looks like packaging tape above the company's signature arrow in the shape of a smile. Amazon introduced the initial new icon in a handful of international markets in late January, but has now changed the design of the blue tape after some said it resembled a toothbrush-style mustache, similar to the one worn by Adolf Hitler."I completely missed that amazon quietly tweaked its new icon to make it look... less like hitler," wrote Alex Hern, a technology editor for the Guardian, on Twitter.

    By Tom Polansek CHICAGO (Reuters) - COVID-19 vaccines are making their way into the arms of U.S. meat and agriculture workers, but companies and union officials say progress needs to be faster after coronavirus outbreaks idled slaughterhouses and sickened thousands of workers. Vaccinating food workers could help prevent further production disruptions that sent meat prices soaring in spring 2020 and forced retailers like Kroger Co to restrict customers' purchases of ground beef and other products. Nationwide, 22,000 meatpacking workers have been infected or exposed to the virus, and 132 have died, according to the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) International union. A U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) committee in December recommended frontline food and agriculture workers receive access to vaccines ahead of people aged 65 to 74 and younger Americans with high-risk medical conditions. But many states prioritized older residents, who account for the majority of...

    Now it’s the Democrats’ turn to be mad at the media. And a moment of truth for journalists who have achieved fame and sometimes fortune during a state of virtual war against Donald Trump. I’ve been saying since the election that the country will be watching as the mainstream press, which openly allied itself with the Resistance, adjusts to the reality of a Democratic administration. And there have been some encouraging signs that journalists don’t just plan to roll over for President Biden. When Biden took no action against the Saudi crown prince for ordering the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to U.S. intelligence, he got more than just criticism from major news outlets and commentators. He drew moral condemnation for the first time in his brief tenure. Whether it was the editorial page of the Washington Post (where Khashoggi was a contributor) or New York Times or CNN’s...
    FREMONT (KPIX) — The City of Fremont installed two additional red light cameras on Monday, that are expected to bring in more than $1.1 million in the first year and decrease the number of accidents.

As a former administrative assistant to John Fry, one of the tasks he gave me was to reach out to all the high schools in San Jose and ask their athletic directors for a wish list. Most sent me lists of very inexpensive equipment such as balls and volleyball nets. Few asked for new wrestling mats or training equipment for football they never dreamed of owning. As I sat with Mr. Fry and these lists, I expected to be given a budget and asked to reduce the list. Instead, I was...

Tim Allen and Richard Karn revive their “Tool Time” banter to judge three craftsmen in building competitions using surprise materials dumped into their home workshops. In the ’90s, Allen roasted macho stereotypes in “Home Improvement” as an accident-prone husband and father of three sons, namely Jonathan Taylor Thomas (pre-Simba). His conscience was backyard fence neighbor Wilson, whom Allen wanted to reveal as a figment of Tim’s imagination in the finale before his co-creators nixed the clever idea.

    The Montgomery County Planning, Housing and Economic Development Committee gave a clearer picture of the type of window guards that could be required in some housing units. In a meeting on Monday, the committee said that the window guards, if approved, would be mandated in multistory and multiunit rentals where children under the age of 10 live. “I think It’s confused people,” said Council President Tom Hucker, who introduced the bill. “We’ve all seen outside security bars, or what people call burglar bars, that are iron and affixed to the masonry on the outside of the building.” But those expensive, permanent fixtures, which have to be installed by professionals, are not the guards his bill is proposing.   “These are flimsy little things that are just strong enough to keep a toddler from falling out, but they can be installed with a screwdriver by any adult,” said Hucker.   His...
    (CBS Detroit) — The likelihood of a third stimulus check has drawn a lot of interest. But the $1.9 trillion economic relief package includes so much more than a $1,400 payment. The American Rescue Plan looks to address the economic pain and suffering brought on by the ongoing pandemic. And it would do that through programs designed to support struggling families, communities and small businesses, and to stop the advance of COVID through testing, tracing and vaccinations. Some of these efforts could even put more money in your pocket. Exactly how much money depends on what happens in the Senate. The House passed the stimulus package on Saturday along party lines and largely unchanged from Biden’s proposal. The Senate will now take it up, with the minimum wage proposal having already been ruled out of bounds given the reconciliation process under which the bill is moving forward. READ MORE: Stimulus...

    By Kate Chappell and Sarah Marsh KINGSTON (Reuters) - In Jamaica, which won praise for containing its coronavirus outbreak last year, patients now overflow into corridors on chairs and stretchers in some hospitals, prompting the Caribbean nation to open three emergency field hospitals. While global new infections start to decline, a handful of countries across the Caribbean, including the larger islands of Jamaica and Cuba, are suffering their worst outbreaks since the start of the pandemic following social gatherings over year-end, quarantine violations by visitors and growing complacency. The number of total confirmed cases has almost doubled in the first two months of the year in Jamaica. It has risen around fourfold in Cuba, eightfold in Barbados and around tenfold in St. Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, according to Oxford University’s Our World in Data database.
