    Former President Donald Trump’s eldest son proclaimed on Thursday that his father continues to be the future of the Republican Party. "If you're reading the room and you're intelligent, you realize that Donald Trump is still the future of the Republican Party," Donald Trump Jr. told Fox News’s Sean Hannity. FORMER TRUMP ADVISER SAYS MCCARTHY ‘HAS TO GO’ OVER LIZ CHENEY IMPEACHMENT VOTE FALLOUT Trump explained that Republicans who follow the 45th president are "following an America First agenda" to "fight for the hardworking men and women.” He also made the case that it’s a “good” thing that many Republicans have broken from the former president over the past several weeks. "The Republican Party isn't going to be bound to those corporate interests anymore," he said.

    With about 5% of Americans having received two doses of COVID-19 vaccines, many are wondering: Can I finally give — and receive — hugs or host a dinner party? It would be safest to wait until everyone getting together is vaccinated, health experts say. The current approved vaccines both require two shots for them to work most effectively, and full protection may not come until a week or two after the second dose. While scientists are confident that the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines for COVID-19 are 94% to 95% effective in preventing clinically recognizable disease, they don’t yet know whether vaccinated people can be asymptomatic carriers of the virus. “We don’t know yet whether [the vaccine] prevents asymptomatic infection,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S. government’s top infectious diseases expert, said on the “L.A. Times Today” program regarding the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. “So it is conceivable and theoretically possible that...
    A defendant facing federal charges over the U.S. Capitol siege on Jan. 6 is facing the hard reality that it’s not a good idea to text one’s ex while engaged in dubious and potentially criminal conduct. Accused pro-Trump rioter Richard Michetti is accused of texting his ex to tell her that she was a “moron” if she couldn’t see that the 2020 election was stolen — which is what Donald Trump himself repeatedly told a crowd before the violence erupted on that day in infamy. Michetti also appeared to claim he and other angry supporters of the 45th president were discriminated against because they were tear-gassed and pepper sprayed. Such responses by law enforcement were unfair, Michetti claimed, because leftists who protested Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court in 2018 were not treated in similar fashion. The ex, who is identified in a 10-page Statement of Facts merely...
    Richard Michetti texted his ex during the Capitol riot to say she was "a moron" if she didn't believe the election was stolen. She turned him in. Michetti is now facing charges for his alleged conduct January 6 after prosecutors said someone with whom Michetti had a "prior romantic relationship" shared with law enforcement texts and videos that he'd sent her during the attack. "If you can't see the election was stolen you're a moron," Michetti texted her that day. Michetti was charged with entering or remaining in restricted building or grounds, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, obstruction of justice as well as a charge making him punishable as a principal. Prosecutors listed a series of texts that Michetti sent his ex as he made his way to the U.S. Capitol. Around 7:15 p.m. the night before the riot, he wrote, "I just got to dc...
    A WOMAN has shared her clever and very discreet way of finding out if your man is faithful - and all you’ll need is a receipt. TikTok user Kandy_Dime shared her tip with her followers captioning her video “how to catch a cheater.” 2Kandy revealed that you can use the sun visor of your man's car to catch him cheatingCredit: @theoriginal_ness/TikTok In the video, she simply slips a receipt in between the sun visor on the passenger side of her man’s car.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should have had the 'common courtesy' to tell the Queen about their upcoming 'nuclear' TV interview with Oprah Winfrey, a royal expert has claimed. The couple reportedly did not inform Her Majesty in advance that they were planning to participate in the 90-minute special, where they will discuss why they dramatically stepped down as senior royals last year.  Appearing on Lorraine today, royal editor Russell Myers claimed that while the couple have no obligation to tell the Firm of their plans, it woud have been the right thing to do. 'If you're going to set off a nuclear bomb like this, doing a huge interview which will no doubt garner attention across global networks, the decent thing to do would be to tell the Queen, tell your granny you're going to do it,' he said.   He predicted the royal family will be 'horrified' with their plans...

    Conservative personal finance guru Dave Ramsey on Thursday shrugged off the need for additional stimulus checks amid a pandemic-induced economic crisis, telling Fox News that “if $600 or $1,400 changes your life, you were pretty much screwed already.” Ramsey, a radio host and author known for advising his listeners that the key to financial success is reducing personal debt, appeared on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom to discuss the push for loan forgiveness and stimulus checks in Democrats’ current COVID-19 relief package. After claiming it was “hogwash and “smoke and mirrors” that forgiving student loan debt would stimulate the economy, Ramsey went on to say that the push by Democrats to increase the amount of student loan forgiveness is simply “political gimme by progressives trying to buy votes.” Ramsey, a former Fox Business Network host and proponent of the “snowball method” of debt control, was then asked his thoughts about...
    People who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and don’t have any symptoms don’t have to quarantine if they’re exposed to someone with the disease, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in new guidelines released today. They should still follow other public health guidelines, like wearing a mask. Someone is considered fully vaccinated if it has been more than two weeks since they’ve received the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or a dose of a single-dose vaccine.

    The feeling of opening Twitter and noticing that something’s off probably isn’t a new one, but it usually isn’t related to the site’s color scheme.

Twitter tells The News Brig that the change from blue to black was intentional — it’s part of an update to make the Tw itter website respond to the light and dark modes on your OS. Of course, if you miss the dark blue, you can bring it back by going to Twitter’s display settings and choosing Dim mode (instead of the inky black Lights Out or the bright Default), and the site should remember that preference. If your Twitter switched from dark mode to light, though, the company says that wasn’t supposed to happen. That was caused by...
    If you don’t know by now, double masking is the newest iteration of face covering suggestion and is, as the name suggests, the idea of wearing more than one face mask. The trend more or less started, when Dr. Anthony Fauci went on NBC’s TODAY and said “it makes common sense” that wearing more than one mask would be more effective. In a recent commentary, Linsey Marr, an expert in virus transmission at Virginia Tech echoed Fauci, writing “if you combine multiple layers, you start achieving pretty high efficiencies” of blocking viruses. The idea stems from getting closer to the effectiveness of an N95 mask, without taking away supply of the coveted mask from healthcare workers who need it most. But what kind of masks are best for double masking? Marr said people can get protection by wearing a cloth mask tightly on top of a surgical mask. These surgical...

    When playing The Sims 3, people with psychopathic traits are more likely to show aggressive and mean behaviour towards other characters, a study has found. The popular life simulation video game allows players to create — and also assume control over — virtual characters, their houses and neighbourhoods. Experts from Canada asked 205 people to create a 'sim' avatar to represent them in interactions with four AI-controlled characters, each with a different personality. The team found that those players who were also found to have more psychopathic traits were more aggressive and less friendly towards the non-player characters. Psychopathy is a personality disorder characterised by traits including deceit, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, aggression and a lack of empathy or remorse. The team examined psychopathy through the lens of the 'Cheater-Hawk' hypothesis, which suggests that cheating and aggressive traits evolved to better gain resources.

    Sony’s latest PlayStation 5 update seems to have fixed one of the biggest issues with cross-gen games on the console: making it clearer when players have the PlayStation 4 version of a game installed and notifying them when there’s a PS5 version available to download.

Their scores can then be cross-referenced with time spent texting, checking email and browsing the internet, using the software giant's Office 365 software, the patent says. All of the information gathered by the system would be combined...

    Ever thought about making that cheap-ish, young bottle of wine taste like something you’d find at the back of a wine cellar? Well, you’re in luck. The Clef du Vin is a wine aging tool that allows you to enjoy young wines without having to wait for them to age. It works on all types of wines: dry, sweet, mellow, sparkling, red, white or rose. Since it’s just six inches long, you can even take it with you when you travel. In fact, the elegant engraved brushed stainless steel tool comes with its own sleek case. The process is simple. You just pour a tiny bit of wine into a glass, then dip the Clef du Vin into it. It will accelerate the process of oxidation, so that, for every second that the wine is in contact with the metal, it will age one year.You do need to keep in...
    A store displays a sign before closing down permanently in Arlington, Virginia.OLIVIER DOULIERY/AFP via Getty Images State and local officials have begun closing some businesses to counter a new surge in coronavirus infections, potentially putting Americans out of work for the second time since the spring. Delaware and Nevada are among the states where officials are re-imposing some restrictions on non-essential businesses. Rules have also tightened recently in California, Illinois and Virginia.

Everyone from Kate Middleton to Meghan Markle has had to pass the social trials. Margaret Thatcher isn’t exactly the most sympathetic political leader in history, but it was hard not to feel sorry for her during The Crown’s deeply awkward Balmoral episode—where the prime minister visited the royals and was greeted with (a) rudeness, (b) snobbery, and (c) the ~BALMORAL TEST~.

    Women in a matriarchal Chinese tribe - where females inherit property, control finances and take as many lovers as they wish - are healthier than those in male dominated villages, researchers have found. A new study suggests that women who live in villages of the Mosuo tribe in southwest China, known as the 'Kingdom of Women', have lower blood pressure than similar villages run by men.  Women in these communities were also found to be less likely to develop heart disease or type two diabetes as they had much lower levels of inflammatory proteins in their blood.

    The Nervous Girls play Lucky You Tattoo in St. Petersburg, Florida on Jan. 9, 2020.Dave Decker In April, when COVID-19’s chokehold on the national and local live music circuit was less scary, my friend Jay Cridlin (then entertainment critic for the Tampa Bay Times, now moved to the economic development desk) published a gallery of 40 local band T-shirts fans could buy to support their musical neighbors. The story was a great reminder of the service locals give to their communities, and it’s been sad to see the plight of local venues unfold over the last eight months. With no end in sight—and a certain fight over federal aid set to play out in D.C.—venues’ futures look grim, which means bands will have even less places to play. Two weeks ago, I revisited the impetus for Jay’s story (“How can I help a local band?”) and asked locals to post...

    SAN ANTONIO – From politics to the pandemic to civil unrest, it can be hard to avoid “doomscrolling” through your social media. That’s when you just can’t stop looking at it, even if it’s upsetting you. Psychologists say the barrage of negativity, including hate speech, violence and misinformation, can not only affect your mood, but your mental health as well. But social media doesn’t have to be that way. “You actually have some control over what kinds of posts you see on social media,” said Consumer Reports Tech Editor Thomas Germain. “This isn’t about blocking out the world and pretending that nothing wrong is happening. It’s about taking back control and deciding when you want to interact with this kind of content and doing so on your own terms.” For example, on Facebook, you can unfollow someone or simply “snooze” them for 30 days by clicking the three dots at...
