    Representative Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) on Thursday said he is “not comfortable” with the Democrats’ proposed $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package that includes money for transit projects, illegal immigrants, and other items not related to the virus. Espaillat conceded on “CNN Newsroom” that any bill that is $1.9 trillion will have “one line that will probably be somewhat embarrassing.” He acknowledged the country is “hurting,” and money directed at helping combat the coronavirus pandemic “would get us back on the right track.” “I’m saying that in any bill that has $1.9 trillion, there will be one line that will probably be somewhat embarrassing, right,” Espaillat stated. “You’re saying it’s embarrassing, and that’s $101.5 million of taxpayer money, and I’m just saying — are you comfortable with it?” host Poppy Harlow asked. “The answer [is] no, I’m not comfortable,” Espaillat replied. “I’m never comfortable with it.

    South Dakota AG under pressure to resign as new evidence reveals investigators found victims broken glasses inside his car Austin eyes rolling back Trump-era policy on special operations Tiger Woods has triumphed over the greatest challenges possible on a golf course. But he’s never faced a test like the one that’s before him now. Woods suffered catastrophic injuries to his legs in a one-car rollover on a California street Tuesday morning. He was driving on a winding residential road when his SUV hit a sign, a curb, crossed over two lanes of oncoming traffic, flipped down into a gully and ended up driver’s-side down. The fact that Woods survived that initial impact was the first good sign. Woods was conscious when first responders arrived on the scene, and “awake” and “responsive,” according to his team, late Tuesday evening. Between those times, though, he underwent hours of extensive surgery, the...

    The next Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland will be titled Spider-Man: No Way Home. The movie will be out only in theaters on December 17th, 2021. The announcement was revealed on Twitter on Wednesday . Holland and co-stars Zendaya and Jacob Batalon teased fans on Tuesday by posting separate joke titles for the movie on Instagram: Holland’s: Spider-Man: Phone Home, Zendaya’s: Spider-Man: Home Slice, and Batalon’s: Spider-Man: Home-Wrecker. While the jokes may have been frustrating, the differing titles may also be hinting at the rumors that the movie will take place in some kind of Spider-Man live-action film multiverse. There have even been reports that a few fan-favorite characters from past movies are coming back, lending further credence to the multiverse rumors. Alfred Molina will reprise his role as Doctor Octopus (from the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movies), for example, and Jamie Foxx will be back Electro (from the Andrew Garfield...

    (CNN)President Joe Biden took his first big trip as president this week when he went to Wisconsin for a CNN town hall. The fact that Biden chose to go to Wisconsin shouldn't be lost on anyone. He will likely be going to the state a lot as president. Arguably, no state tells us more about Biden's or any president's political standing in the last 30 years than Wisconsin. It's also likely to tell us whether his party does well in the 2022 midterms.If you wanted to know who won the presidency in the last three elections, you needn't look further than the Badger State. It was one of just three states that voted for Biden in 2020, Donald Trump in 2016 and Barack Obama in 2012 (the other two are the key battlegrounds of Michigan and Pennsylvania).

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – On top of dealing with power outages and boil water advisories, many North Texans have been frustrated by empty shelves at grocery stores across the Metroplex. “I know it’s unnerving for customers when they come in the store and it doesn’t look like the grocery store they know and love,” said Christy Lara, director of public relations for the southern division of Tom Thumb and Albertsons. “There’s been an increase in demand, coupled with some stores that have dealt with power outages and had to [get rid of] product as a result.” READ MORE: Winterizing Texas Power Plants Becomes Major Political Issue After Millions Left In Dark Without Heat The hazardous road conditions have also made it difficult for suppliers and trucks to get in. “So that has impacted us exponentially with getting product replenished in our stores,” said April Martin, corporate affairs manager for the Kroger...

    The ambitious plan to shoot Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 consecutively is being changed.

    Gov.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is likely to release new guidelines on reopening classrooms across America for in-person learning "before the end of this week,"  White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci told "Special Report" Monday.  "I think it would be important, rather than trying to get different opinions of it, let's see what the guidance shows and then we could all discuss about the various aspects of the guidance," Fauci told host Bret Baier. "But it will be coming out, I'm almost certain, before the end of the week." Earlier in the program, Fauci reiterated that while he considers teachers "essential personnel" and "it would be important to get them vaccinated", "there are situations where you likely can still get children back to school, provided you do it in a safe environment, vis-à-vis masking and other public health measures." With two vaccines in the process of being distributed...
    Past, present, future. It's Black History Month. While the daily news cycle looks like it will still be grinding us all into a fine paste for the foreseeable future, it's still worth setting time aside to learn more about the parts of American history that were glossed over in your history books so as to better paint this nation as uniquely virtuous, compared to all the others, or to directly stoke notions of white supremacy, or otherwise coddle that large and vocal portion of American society that does not like learning about anything nuanced or unpleasant or that would not look good stenciled in as a slogan on the back window of a monster truck.

    Getty Jaylen Brown soars in a for a dunk Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens shared a brief but encouraging update Sunday regarding the status of forward Jaylen Brown’s sore left knee. “Feeling much better today,” said Stevens, speaking to the media before the Celtics 100-91 loss to the Phoenix Suns. “[Jaylen’s] gonna go through a lift and a light court workout here before the game. But all trending really positive.” As expected, Brown was declared out against the Suns. And while his 26.4 points per game were undoubtedly missed in a matchup that saw Kemba Walker shoot 4-for-20 from the field and Carsen Edwards 1-for-6, Brown’s defensive presence was perhaps the most impactful omission. Phoenix’s guards and small forwards, specifically Devin Booker and Mikal Bridges, utilized their length to create easy looks over the shorthanded—and short—Celtics backcourt. The 6-foot-5 Booker scored 18 while dishing out 11 assists,...

    BOSTON (CBS) — The 2020 season was a rough one for the New England Patriots. The biggest difference on the roster was going from Tom Brady to Cam Newton at quarterback, but New England was also hit hard when it came to opt-outs because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Patriots had eight players opt out of the season, more than any other team in the NFL. That included some pretty important members of the team like linebacker Dont’a Hightower, safety Patrick Chung, offensive lineman Marcus Cannon and running back/special teamer Brandon Bolden. The good news is that Devin McCourty believes they’ll all be back in the fold in 2021. “From my understanding, they’ll all be back,” the Patriots veteran safety told NBC Sports’ Tom E. Curran for his Patriots Talk Podcast on Friday. “B. Bolden, High, Chung. So I can’t wait. Those are my guys — Cannon [too]. “I just...

    A lifestyle guru who claims he is going to live until he is 180 suggested Monday his methods — skipping breakfast, intermittent fasting, cold cryotherapy treatments, and deep sleep — will soon be as popular as cell phones. In an interview with the British ITV program "This Morning," Dave Asprey, 47, restated his oft-made claim he will live to the year 2153 "at least" — and "everyone will have anti-aging." "Skipping breakfast is really important," he told the program. "If you can learn the simple trick of intermittent fasting, what you find is that you have more energy that day, you start to lose weight and you start to feel better. "The other thing you can do to live longer is have dinner early. If you have dinner just an hour earlier, it gives you one more hour when your body goes in and repairs itself. If you always have...

    SO football used to be Men Behaving Badly but now, apparently, it’s as gentrified as Downton Abbey. Well, that’s what boffins in Austria have told us with research at the University of Salzburg claiming footballers, coaches and managers are now far more polite due to the absence of fans. 4Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic bucked the trend when they were involved in a furious bust-up this weekCredit: Getty 4Karren Brady writes exclusively for SunSportCredit: Getty They reckon the lack of supporters due to Covid restrictions has led to fewer altercations on the pitch and less emotional behaviour. The research, centred around Austrian outfit FC Red Bull Salzburg, claims there have been nearly 20 per cent fewer emotional situations in ‘ghost games’ — those without fans. The eggheads said there were fewer fouls, less abuse of refs and less verbal jousting between opposing players — all because supporters have been side-lined...

    How will they “be back”? 4 ways the Buffalo Bills can avoid a hangover By: Geoff Magliocchetti January 28, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditEveryone assumes the Buffalo Bills will be back to the AFC title game, but we’ve heard that one way too many times in the past. Toward the end of many NFL playoff contests, a mantra of the damned has become as much of a prevalent broadcast tradition as reminding viewers that Bob’s Burgers or 60 Minutes will be coming up next (except on the west coast, in the latter case). When time is low and the game’s outcome is no longer in doubt, time is often dedicated to the team who will have to wait until September to restart their Super Bowl trek. As the camera lingers on images of the downtrodden runners-up between plays, the announcers will often repeat some variation of the...

But he also warned that the Biden administration may roll back some of his policies.  "You're gonna see incredible numbers start coming in if everything is left alone, Trump said. "Be careful."

    President Donald Trump delivered the final speech of his administration from the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews on Wednesday morning, moments before jetting off to Mar-a-Lago and hours before the inauguration of Joe Biden. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump traveled on Marine One from the White House to the base, where a crowd that included his adult children Don Jr., Eric, Tiffany, Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner waited for his speech. The prompter-free speech was a rambling accounting of Trump’s accomplishments as president, with a lamentation that the “China virus” bludgeoned the U.S. economy. There were textbook Trumpian flourishes, including his claim he drew 75 million votes in the 2020 election (the number is 74.2 million). He also offered warm words for the next administration — an odd touch, given his refusal to attend the inauguration and already infamous attempt to undo the election. “The future of this country has...

    Parler CEO John Matze said he's "confident" that the social media platform will be back online by the end of January. "I’m confident that by the end of the month, we’ll be back up," Matze told Fox News, days after the Twitter alternative registered its domain with host sharing website Epik, following Amazon Web Services's decision to stop providing cloud services to Parler, causing the website to go offline.

    Will Patrick Mahomes be back for AFC Championship Game vs. Bills? On Sunday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs lived through a nightmare of a game when star quarterback Patrick Mahomes was taken out of the game after a scary tackle left him visibly unwell and diagnosed with a concussion. He was removed from the game and thankfully, the Chiefs were able to hold on to their lead and move on to the conference championship. But that leaves many of us wondering: Will Mahomes be back for AFC Championship Game versus the Buffalo Bills? The answer isn’t all that easy to give unfortunately but the good news is it’s a maybe. The protocol to return will depend on the severity of his concussion, which to the untrained eye, looked bad. He’ll have to go through daily clearances, light practice and eventually a full clearing before he can return to the field....

    President Donald Trump said Tuesday the 25th Amendment posed “zero” risk to him, but that it could come back to “haunt” President-elect Joe Biden. “The 25th Amendment is of zero risk to me, but will come back to haunt Joe Biden and the Biden administration,” Trump said in an afternoon speech in Alamo, Texas, where he was commemorating the construction of a border wall. “As the expression goes, be careful what you wish for. He also addressed an effort by congressional Democrats to impeach him during the final week of his term in the White House. “The impeachment hoax is a continuation of the greatest and most vicious with hunt in the history of our country, and is causing tremendous anger and division and pain, far greater than most people will ever understand, which is very dangerous for the U.S.A. — especially at this very tender time,” Trump said.

    Dr. Anthony S. Fauci says the reopening of live theater and music venues “will occur sometime in late fall of 2021” — if the COVID-19 vaccine rollout can get rolling. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases made the announcement during a virtual panel discussion held Saturday by the Association of Performing Arts Professionals. He said, “early to mid-fall, you can have people feeling safe performing onstage as well as people in the audience.” However, the relaunch depends on one big “if” — ironing out the ongoing kinks in national vaccine distribution. Dr. Fauci also revealed that “Hamilton” was the last “magnifcent” show he saw live — and warned the conference crowd that live audiences can expect to continue wearing masks for the immediate future, and that venues should probably consider requiring audience members to show proof of negative coronavirus test results. He also...
