    This turtle is exceptionally uncommon — unlike the food products that internet denizens believe it resembles. A bizarre-looking creature, recently found in a village in Nepal, has been identified as an Indian flapshell turtle with a unique condition, and Twitter users are having a field day comparing it to packaged snack items. “Today a Yellow Turtle was rescued from a Pond in Burdwan,” tweeted Indian Forest Service worker Debashish Sharma on Tuesday about the find from West Bengal. “It’s one kind of a rarely [occurring] Flapshell Turtle.” The viral tweet, which has racked up over 7,200 likes, has attracted both commenters interested in discussing the creature, and those more interested in joking around. Some have even photoshopped it into a cheeseburger and compared it to a pancake, Moon Pie and the Mario Bros. character Koopa, among other things. A turtle born with a rare genetic mutation that caused it to...
    The Detroit Lions were dismantled Sunday against the Colts 41-21. Entering the game, we’d managed to get ourselves to 3-3. Why did I think we could actually string a few wins together starting against Indy? (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) I should have known that things were going just a shade too well! Matthew Stafford gifts the Colts an easy pick-6????pic.twitter.com/SSafJNrssV — PFF (@PFF) November 1, 2020 In the least surprising fashion ever, the Lions looked horrible for large parts of the game. I mean, we looked like trash. We couldn’t run the ball to save our life, Stafford threw one of the worst pick sixes I’ve ever seen and we just sucked. All of that leads me to my main point, and it’s one I’ve been making over and over again. Fire Matt Patricia immediately. Don’t even let him clean out his...
            by Jeff Giesea  A year ago, University of Georgia professor Cas Mudde took to Twitter and asked: “How do you manage to stay informed about political news and stay mentally balanced?” In his next tweet, he confessed too much time on social media was contributing to anxiety and depression. With this, Mudde expressed a sentiment many social media users share. As we discuss policy issues tied to social media—tech regulation, free speech, foreign influence—we shouldn’t lose sight of the damaging psychological effects of today’s information environment. You may not want to hear this a week before the election, but social media addiction is a public health issue. Big Tech is the new Big Tobacco. So what? Well, maybe the simplest solution to social media-induced wreckage is right in front of us: moderation. Spend less time online, both personally and collectively. Public health could be one of the most...
    Progressives are just keeping their tongue-biting promise to help Joe Biden deliver, presenting the former vice president to their supporters, once and for all, as the last chance of demolishing Donald Trump’s stronghold on Washington. But that courtesy is not likely to extend much longer if Trump loses re-election next week, according to interviews with elected officials and prominent figures in the movement. If Democrats win the White House and lock both chambers of Congress, those who backed Biden’s bid with an asterisk are preparing to push him with speed and purpose on a number of important issues, leaving little room for the pleasantries of party unity that prevailed throughout the general election. “The word on the street is it’s definitely going to start immediately,” a former senior adviser to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said in an interview on Tuesday. “Most people are putting on the good face to vote...
    Following an order from the presiding judge, the Justice Department filed declarations swearing to the accuracy of the exhibits it relied upon in a motion to dismiss the case against retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and the documents that it provided to his legal team. The Justice Department also called upon the judge to grant to the dismissal, which he has so far resisted doing, with roughly a week to go before Election Day. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jocelyn Ballantine submitted a 46-page filing on Monday night, assuring the judge that “there have been no material alterations made to any of the 14 Government Exhibits filed in support of the motion to dismiss and the supplement to the motion to dismiss.” DOJ emphasized that it now “declares under penalty of perjury that the Government Exhibits and Discovery Documents are true and correct, are correctly identified, and have been faithfully...
    Reuters October 27, 2020 0 Comments A federal judge on Tuesday rejected a U.S. government request to drop Donald Trump as a defendant in a defamation lawsuit by a writer who said the president falsely denied raping her in a Manhattan department store a quarter century ago. U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan in Manhattan refused to let the government substitute itself for Trump as a defendant in former Elle magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll’s lawsuit. Kaplan’s decision is a defeat for Trump, because dropping him as a defendant would have shielded him from liability and likely doomed Carroll’s defamation claim. Acting at the behest of Attorney General William Barr, the Department of Justice has argued that Trump acted in his official capacity when denying Carroll’s accusations, and therefore could not be sued personally for defamation. But the judge said Trump was not an “employee of the government” entitled to...

    A Boston ballot box was set on fire early Sunday in what appears to be a “deliberate attack,” according to local officials, who called the incident “a disgrace to democracy.” Authorities in Massachusetts have asked the FBI to investigate the blaze, which was sparked around 4 a.m. outside the main branch of the Boston Public Library. The drop-off box held 122 ballots, 35 of which were largely spoiled, Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin’s office said. Galvin and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh blasted the act as a “disgrace to democracy, a disrespect to the voters fulfilling their civic duty, and a crime.” Boston Police on Sunday released two images of a possible suspect in the arson investigation. In one image, the man appears to be holding an object with a glowing flame near the ballot box. Officers called to the scene saw smoke pouring out of the box,...
    A SEXPERT has revealed the gross habit men need to stop "immediately". Nadia Bokody, from Sydney, argues lots of men have terrible hygiene - and says it brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "toxic masculinity". 2Nadia Bokody has revealed the 'gross' habit men need to stop, which 'brings a whole new meaning to toxic masculinity'Credit: Instagram Writing for news.com.au, she cites a 2018 poll which showed just 84 per cent of men felt washing their hands after using the toilet was "very important", compared to 91 per cent of ladies. Meanwhile, she says "thousands" of women have taken to Reddit to ask how they can get their husband to stop leaving skid marks. Nadia said: "Perhaps we have toxic masculinity all wrong. Maybe 'toxic' was actually meant in reference to the hazardous odours emanating from men’s unwashed bodies? "In all seriousness, male hygiene, and the abysmally low standard...
    When two Georgia cops came across a familiar-looking man with a bushy black mustache wearing a grey suit, sitting in a pickup truck with a woman strapped into a car seat on the roof, they almost instantly knew they had just walked into one of Borat Sagdiyev's signature pranks.  The hilarious encounter took place back in January on Main Street in the Atlanta suburb of Lilburn and was captured on a police body camera video.  A small portion of the interaction between the world-famous fake Kazakh journalist, as played by Sacha Baron Cohen, and the two shrewd cops is featured in the new comedy Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, now available on Amazon Prime.   A screenshot from a trailer for Borat 2 captures two Lilburn, Georgia, police officers questioning Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat Sagdiyev  Cohen is seen in the trailer sitting behind the wheel of a yellow pickup truck parked...
    The share of Americans who say they are likely to get the first generation of a potential coronavirus vaccine as soon as it is available is dropping as prominent Democrats suggest it may not be effective, a STAT/Harris poll revealed this week. Citing the poll, the health-oriented news outlet STAT reported Monday: Overall, 58% of the U.S. public said they would get vaccinated as soon as a vaccine was available when asked earlier this month, down considerably from 69% who said the same thing in mid-August. That change suggests growing concern that the regulatory approval process for a Covid-19 [coronavirus disease] vaccine has been politicized by the Trump administration in the run-up to the presidential election. Prominent Democrats have cast doubt on the vaccine’s effectiveness. In early August, then-presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden suggested that the Trump administration’s effort to develop a vaccine in record time — Operation Warp...

    LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- Oversight Commission calls for LA County Sheriff Villanueva to immediately resignEscalating its war of words with Sheriff Alex Villanueva, the county's Civilian Oversight Commission today unanimously approved a resolution condemning the sheriff's leadership of the department and calling for his immediate resignation. The commission had originally planned to adopt a resolution that blasted Villanueva's administration, accused him of failing to cooperate with the oversight panel and vowing to hold him accountable if he continued to "facilitate dysfunction'' in the agency.But during its discussion, commission members first considered amending the document to make it a "no-confidence'' vote, then went even further by demanding his resignation.

    Getty Kamalei Correa celebrates a big play in the playoffs. The Detroit Lions have been one of the bigger disappointments in the NFL this season, and at 1-3, it’s hard to see how their season will play out. One of the bigger mysteries that will unfold is what the team plans to do during the trade deadline. It’s possible Detroit could be active, especially if the team manages to turn things around in the coming weeks. While a bigger move should not be anticipated, the Lions have plenty of ability to make a smaller move to help in their roster building to shore up a few needs. Recently, in the lead up to the trade deadline, Tennessee Titans’ linebacker Kamalei Correa had been kept by the team as a healthy scratch. That’s led Correa to desire a move off the roster and a fresh start. Interestingly, according to...
    Jose Altuve had two errors in Game 2, but rebounded nicely on Tuesday This season’s MLB Playoffs don’t give players much time to dwell on an untimely error, or in Altuve’s case two of them. The Astros second baseman short-armed two throws to first base, although they probably should’ve been scooped properly by Yuli Gurriel. That’s neither here nor there, and Altuve was tagged with two errors on the day. Houston now faces an 0-2 deficit, and Altuve is the primary culprit given his previous role in the sign-stealing scandal which helped gift the Astros their 2017 World Series title. GONE ????

    The Supreme Court has granted an emergency stay allowing Trump's Commerce Department, headed by Wilbur Ross, to end the 2020 census count early. This will, with certainty, lead to an undercount of the United States population. It may also impact the reapportionment of congressional seats. A lower court decision had required the Census Bureau to continue the count until Oct. 31. In a dissent, Justice Sotomayor noted that the Census Bureau itself had previously selected the Oct. 31 date as necessary to maintain census accuracy despite pandemic disruptions, and that the government has already asserted that it will not be able to meet the Dec. 31 statutory deadline for reporting the results whether the count was continued through October or was halted. "Moreover, meeting the deadline at the expense of the accuracy of the census is not a cost worth paying, especially when the Government has failed to show why it could...

    By JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHER, Associated Press HONOLULU (AP) — A former Maui police officer is accused of using his position to solicit sex in exchange for sabotaging a case alleging his target drove under the influence of an intoxicant. A court document filed last week charges Brandon Saffeels with honest services wire fraud. As a Maui officer, Saffeels had access to people's phone numbers, addresses and criminal histories. Last year, he allegedly used that information to obtain an individual's cell phone number and solicit sex in exchange for promising to provide false testimony in that person's driving under the influence of an intoxicant case, U.S. prosecutors said.

    By ELIAS MESERET, Associated Press ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told his Ethiopian counterpart that his country has the intention to “immediately” bring over some 2,000 Ethiopian Jews.

              Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Monday asked the state’s Supreme Court for clarification that its recent order overturning her emergency powers does not take effect until October 30. The ruling, mandated October 2, struck down the statute under which Whitmer had been issuing coronavirus emergency orders, nullifying the orders and saying that their issuance had been unconstitutional. “We need this transition period to protect the 830,000 Michigan workers and families who are depending on unemployment benefits to pay their bills and put food on the table, and to protect Michiganders everywhere who are counting on their leaders to protect them,” Whitmer said in a statement on Monday. “The Supreme Court has spoken, and while I vehemently disagree with their ruling, I’m ready to work across the aisle with Republicans in the legislature where we can find common ground to slow the spread of the...

    Historic precedent, the Constitution, and an ‘outstanding’ nominee are reasons the Senate should “immediately” take up the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to become a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, according to 22 Republican Attorneys General who have written to Senate leaders and leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee urging them to do just that. In the letter, dated September 30 and addressed to Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the top cops from 22 states hope nothing will prevent Barrett from being confirmed and seated on the High Court. They spelled out the reasons that that should happen. Their letter said: Some have voiced a concern that the senators of the 116th Congress will not have enough time to adequately consider Judge Barrett’s qualifications. History and precedent show that to be untrue. Justice Ginsburg herself was confirmed 42 days after...

    Boston Celtics came this far, only to be faced with disappointment. This was their third defeat in the Conference Finals in four years, and you can’t help but think about what they’re doing wrong. They gave up leads during crucial moments and key players performed inconsistently. It’s time they bring bigger changes on board if they want to finish first on top season. Let’s go over three changes the Celtics desperately need to make for next season. Boston Celtics need a competent big to rely on The Celtics have been labeled as a very talented team. They are led by their young stars Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, but also have more support at their disposal with Kemba Walker, Gordon Hayward and Marcus Smart. While some may think that’s more than enough, it’s not really showing on court. Therefore, they still have that one true big man missing. If they...

    ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece on Sunday called on Turkey to condemn and investigate what it said was an "insult" to its national flag on the Greek island of Kastellorizo. Greek media have reported that the blue and white Greek flag painted on a rocky hillside on Saturday appeared stained with red paint. Kastellorizo is very close to the Turkish coast. It was not immediately clear who was responsible for the incident. "We blatantly condemn yesterday's insult of the Greek flag on Kastellorizo," the Greek foreign ministry said in a statement.

"Such unacceptable actions only seek to torpedo prospects for easing tensions between the two countries". There was no immediate comment from Turkey. Greek police were investigating, an official said. Greek media also reported that a drone equipped with a...

Without hesitation, Dukes-Eddy, who is pregnant, leaped into the water and pulled him to safety. On a family vacation in Florida last week, the Atlanta-based couple, accompanied by Duke-Eddy’s parents, sister and her sister’s boyfriend, decided to spend the day swimming and snorkeling aboard a private 20-foot motorboat, according to the Miami Herald who first reported the story.

    Ron Paul, a former Texas congressman, presidential candidate and the father of Sen. Rand Paul, suffered an apparent stroke-like illness in the middle of a livestream Friday afternoon. Paul, 85, who was live-streaming his weekday “Liberty Report” broadcast on YouTube, has been hospitalized for “precautionary” reasons, Fox News reported. A clip of the disturbing medical episode was first tweeted out by the outlet Intelwave. The live episode may have been a blessing in disguise, the outlet added in a subsequent tweet. “Echoing the sentiment of one of my associates, I’m glad it happened live where someone noticed immediately and could get him medical help rather than it happening and him only being found hours later,” the tweet said. The Libertarian and former obstetrician ran for president three times. Paul was in the middle of talking about “free market economists” when he begins to slur his words, according to saved...
    A few days ago I noted that low-income workers were still spending a lot, thanks largely to assistance from the CARES program, but they’re also still unemployed at high levels. My evidence was a little indirect, though, so I’m happy to present direct evidence for this based on data from Raj Chetty’s economic tracker. Here’s consumer spending: The lowest income group has been spending at pre-pandemic levels since June, while the highest income group is still holding back. But here’s employment: Low-wage workers are still far below their pre-pandemic levels of employment, while high-wage workers are back to normal and even mid-wage workers are close to normal. Today, economists at Goldman Sachs became the latest to issue a warning that economic recovery will falter if Congress doesn’t provide more federal aid. That’s nearly a unanimous view these days, but these charts make it clear what kind of federal...

    During a White House press briefing, President Donald Trump made the bombshell revelation that he won’t commit to a “peaceful transferral of power,” sending reporters into a frenzy of not asking any other questions about it. In an exchange that rocked the political media world Wednesday, Playboy magazine reporter and CNN commentator Brian Karem asked Trump, at length, “Will you commit to making sure that there is a peaceful transferal of power after the election?” “Well, we’re going to have to see what happens,” Trump responded. “I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are disaster,” he added, falsely. “People are rioting. Do you commit to make sure that there’s a peaceful transferral of power?” Karem pressed. “Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer frankly. There will be a continuation,” Trump said, repeating his false claim...

    Sen. Cory Booker said on Sunday that Republican plans to quickly move on confirming a successor to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was the face of the liberal bloc of the court and a trailblazer for women's rights, would undermine the legitimacy of the court, which serves as a check on the other two branches of government and relies on its implicit legitimacy because it doesn't have official means with which to enforce its rulings. Booker, D-N.J., is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that would play a key role in vetting and moving along any Trump nominee to fill Ginsburg's seat. He garnered headlines during the most recent Supreme Court confirmation for Justice Brett Kavanaugh after he declared an "I am Spartacus" moment after releasing an allegedly confidential email relating to Kavanaugh's confirmation although it had been cleared to be released at the time. He is likely to...

    President Donald Trump faced tough questioning from a voter regarding his efforts to repeal Obamacare at an ABC News town hall on Tuesday night. Ellesia Blaque, a PhD and professor who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, spoke about her lifelong struggle with sarcoidosis, an inflammatory disease, as well as the extent of her healthcare costs. She asked: “Should preexisting conditions, which Obamacare brought to fruition, be removed –” “No,” Trump jumped in. “Please stop and let me finish my question, sir,” Blaque said. “Should that be removed, within a 36 to 72-hour period, without my medication, I will be dead. And I want to know what it is that you’re going to do assure that people like me who work hard, we do everything we’re supposed to do, can stay insured.” “It’s not my fault that I was born with this disease,” she continued. “It’s not my fault...

    Ever since President Donald Trump and Republicans passed historic tax cuts, Democrats have been promising to repeal them if elected back into office. Now the party has changed its tune, at least a little. Democrats now say they won’t immediately inflict tax hikes on the American people should Democratic nominee Joe Biden win the White House and Democrats retake the Senate. Instead, they’ll wait to raise taxes on the so-called wealthy (the base range for who is considered a “wealthy” individual sometimes ensnares middle-class families in expensive states like California and New York) and corporations until after the economy has recovered from the coronavirus recession, The Hill reported. “Instead, the priority will be on spending to create jobs and raise wages, investments in green technology and infrastructure and a national plan to contain the coronavirus pandemic,” the outlet reported. “Some of those stimulus and relief bills could include tax incentives...

    NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) — A southern Indiana police chief said he believed an officer acted appropriately in shooting a man who twice tried hit officers with his car. The man was taken from the shooting scene in New Albany to a Louisville, Kentucky, hospital early Saturday but information about his condition wasn’t immediately released by Indiana State Police, which is investigating the confrontation.

    Sen. Chuck Schumer Tuesday called for Louis DeJoy to be suspended in the face of new allegations the Postmaster General pressured employees at his previous company to donate money to Republicans. Schumer, the top Democrat in the Senate, already urged a criminal investigation into the alleged campaign finance fraud scheme but in a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday, he called for the United States Postal Service (USPS) board to immediately take DeJoy off the job.

    President Donald Trump late Monday morning announced he would hold a press conference, but after a late start and minutes in it became clear it was yet another campaign-style stream-of-consciousness rally devoid of facts and filled with lies. Both MSNBC and CNN were not airing the “press conference” minutes after it began. After Trump’s 20 minutes or so of angry grumbling, and disgruntled attacks on Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris, his Democratic opponents, Trump ended his remarks before taking reporters questions by saying, “Happy Labor Day, everybody.” MSNBC “The Last Word” producer Kyle Griffin announced, “MSNBC aired about five minutes of Trump’s speech before cutting it off and fact checking his lies on U.S. economic progress.” CNN’s Jim Acosta noted that the address was a campaign event: After convention speech on South Lawn, Trump now doing much of the same from North Portico… hitting all of his rally...

First reported by the Washington Post, the story included claims from former employees of DeJoy, most notably from his human resources director David Young, who said DeJoy—a major donor to the Republican Party and President Donald Trump—would reimburse workers using payroll bonuses for political giving, an arrangement that is unlawful under both federal law and in North Carolina, where his logistics company, New Breed, is located. North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein responded to the news Sunday evening by backing an investigation. “It is against the law to directly or indirectly reimburse someone for...
