There’s so:

    The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld critically questioned the media about devoting hours of airtime on the Tuesday morning car crash by Tiger Woods. During a segment where Fox News dipped out of ongoing live coverage of the accident, the panelists weighed in on the news about Woods. But after Dana Perino noted the public’s longtime fascination with someone who is an icon not just within golf or the sports world, but in American culture in general, Gutfeld offered a decidedly contrarian take on the coverage. “Really, though?” Gutfeld said in rebuttal. “Everybody wants to hear about his for an hour? I don’t know.” “I know our job is to overstate incidents like this…” Gutfeld continued, just as what sounded like Perino whispering into a hot mic saying: “Guys…” “If we don’t overstate it, people might change the channel,” he added, before noting that tens of thousands of Americans are injured in car accidents every year. “I...
    Tina Smith: Democratic senator calls for probe into natural gas price hikes during severe winter storms Trump to address CPAC in first major speech since leaving office Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Gina Carano has nothing but words of support for former The Mandalorian costar Pedro Pascal, even though she says he's done "some hurtful things." In a new interview with The Ben Shapiro Show, the conservative actress spoke about being fired by Lucasfilm from the series earlier this month after sharing multiple controversial social media posts that sparked the #FireGinaCarano movement. The post that proved to be the end of the line for Carano, likened being a right-wing conservative to being Jewish during the Holocaust. It has since been deleted. In the wake of the news, fans called out Disney for not firing Pascal, who also invoked the Holocaust in a 2018 tweet...
    BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins will wait to retire the number of pioneering Black hockey player Willie O’Ree until next year so that they can raise his No. 22 banner to the rafters with fans in the building. The NHL said Thursday it asked the Bruins and O’Ree to postpone the ceremony until Jan. 18 — 64 years to the day that he became the league’s first Black player. It had been scheduled for next Thursday night before a game against the New Jersey Devils. “We hope and expect the change will enable us all to commemorate this moment in a way that matches the magnitude of Willie’s impact,” the league said, “in front of a TD Garden crowd packed with passionate Bruins fans, who can express their admiration and appreciation for Willie and create the meaningful moment he has earned throughout his incredible career.” Only five...
    Dr. Fauci says there are no 'red flags' so far for pregnant women getting COVID vaccines after more than 10,000 mothers-to-be got their shots. Pregnant women were not included in the vaccine trials run by Moderna and Pfizer - but that left health officials and women keen to discover the results once they became available. Food and Drug Administration officials gave emergency authorization to Moderna's shot for use in adults 18 and over. Pfizer's shot is authorized for anyone 16 or older. 'The FDA, as part of the typical follow up you have following the initial issuing of any [emergency use authorization] have found, thus far, and we’ve got to be careful, but thus far, no red flags about that, about pregnant women,' Dr Fauci said during a Wednesday JAMA interview.   'Interestingly, many of the pregnant women were health care providers who were exposed [to coronavirus on a daily basis]...
    WE’VE all popped out for a pint of milk or a pair of socks, only to return home hours later laden with shopping bags.  You get distracted by offers, sale items and must-have goodies when wandering the aisles - particularly in B&M.  8A woman revealed she popped into B&M for some cleaning products The department store is infamous for seeing shoppers nip in for one item, then leave with half the shop in their trolley.  And that’s exactly what happened to one woman, who popped into her local B&M for cleaning supplies - and walked out with four trolley’s worth of stock.  The woman went shopping with her mum, who filmed her mountain of goodies in the carpark.  Her mum shared the clip to TikTok, saying: “When you go shopping to B&M with your shopaholic daughter.” 8She ended up coming out with four trolley's worth of items The camera pans...
    Amateur investors chatting it up on a Reddit thread have managed to drive GameStop’s stock up more than 600% over the course of the week. While the unexpected surge in the stock price has generated dozens of memes and forced out some laughs, the frenzy could have some unintended consequences. Hedge funds that shorted companies like GameStop and AMC are now finding themselves under the gun after a Reddit thread known as “WallStreetBets” (WSB) fueled buyers to flock to the mediocre stocks. The stock burst has spawned a series of memes and reactions from amateur to experienced investors who appear to be enjoying the booming market, albeit temporarily.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — New research that came out Monday reveals the COVID-19 vaccine is effective at stopping international variants. However, health officials now say those mutations appear to be more dangerous than first thought. The variants appear to be more contagious. A growing number of health officials say wearing two masks can provide an extra layer of protection, but the vaccine remains the best prevention. Research from Moderna says its vaccine is effective against the COVID variant from the United Kingdom, but not as much in the one from South Africa. So now, Moderna will test booster doses tailored to fight the new strains. “The vaccines we have, these mRNA vaccines, they illicit super awesome levels of antibodies and their reactivity drops from super awesome, to just awesome,” said Dr. Scott Hensley with the University of Pennsylvania. “Well, guess what? That’s good enough in neutralizing these variants.” Dr. Hensley’s lab...

    KATIE PRICE makes an unlikely nurse. Her inch-long fake nails prise open a packet of tablets from the mountain of medication her son Harvey must take every day. Bluntly, she tells viewers of her new BBC documentary: “Half are to keep him alive. Half are to control his behaviour.” 7Sam Carlisle says she is full of admiration for Katie PriceCredit: BBC When 28st Harvey kicks off about the pills, Katie gently coaxes him into swallowing them, like a young mum persuading a toddler to eat their greens. This is the heart of Harvey And Me, which follows the pair as Harvey turns 18 and airs on Monday night. It shows the relentlessness of caring for a young person with physical needs, learning disabilities and challenging behaviour. But it also captures the shatterproof bond between a mother and son who will always mentally be a child. Harvey chooses to celebrate...
    London and Hong Kong (CNN)The recent attack on the US Capitol served as a sobering wake-up call: Not only have the Trump years left America deeply divided, they've also transformed it into a theater of political violence.President Donald Trump's impact on the world at large has been much the same. As he hands power to Joe Biden on Wednesday -- however reluctantly -- he also hands his successor a far more dangerous world than it was four years ago. At the start of 2020, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists behind the symbolic Doomsday Clock moved the time to 100 seconds to midnight, indicating that the world was closer to annihilation than it had been at any time since World War II.In their assessment, they considered the threat of nuclear confrontation, climate change and disruptive technologies. Of course, not every threat they point to is the result of a Trump policy....
    House Democratic Whip James C. Clyburn says he does not believe there is a two-thirds majority in the Senate to convict President Trump of incitement of insurrection – but said new things could come up at trial that could move the needle. Clyburn made the comments hours after the House voted to impeach Trump for the second time – with 10 House Republicans crossing the aisle to make it a bipartisan effort after a mob of Trump supporters ransacked the Capitol. The votes sets up a Senate trial now likely to commence after Trump leaves office. 'Well I don't know,' he said when asked in an NPR interview if the votes were there to convict. 'I know what Mitch McConnell seems to be thinking. I suspect that there is support. I don't think – there's 17 Republicans that would be needed – I don't think there's 17. Not at this point,'...
    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) stated that there are not the votes to convict President Donald Trump in the Senate, and an impeachment effort now would be “so ill-advised for Joe Biden to be coming in, trying to heal the country, trying to be the president of all the people when we’re going to be so divided and fighting again.” Manchin said that until Sens. Jon Ossoff (D-GA) and Raphael Warnock (D-GA) are sworn in, Democrats would need 19 Republicans to support a conviction, and “I don’t see that and I think the House should know that also. We’ve been trying to send that message over. They know the votes aren’t there … I think this is so ill-advised for Joe Biden to be coming in, trying to heal the country, trying to be the president of all the people when...
    Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin said Monday that efforts to rush President Donald Trump through a second impeachment would be “ill-advised.” Manchin told Fox News anchor Bret Baier that he thought Democrats would be better served to focus on helping President-elect Joe Biden through the transition rather than try to impeach Trump again in the last few days of his presidency. (RELATED: ‘I Went To The Shooting Range Yesterday’: Manchin Says People Shouldn’t Be ‘Scared To Death’ Of Democrats Taking Guns) WATCH: “I want to talk to you first about the impeachment effort,” Baier said, noting that by all accounts, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared to have the votes to pass articles of impeachment. “Is there any scenario where you see that the U.S. Senate would try and convict President Trump?” Manchin said he did not believe the Senate would have enough Republican support to convict even if...

    Hollywood actress Gal Gadot says working on the Wonder Woman franchise has helped her a lot in her journey as a film producer. She has produced the upcoming self-starring superhero film “Wonder Woman 1984”. Asked about being attached to the film as actor and producer, Gadot said: “It was an amazing opportunity for me to really learn from the best. I do what I do out of passion and love for the arts and the craft. And, even though I’m the one who, along with (director) Patty (Jenkins), knows the character so well because I play her, there’s something so eye-opening in being involved in such a huge project from such an early stage, and being involved in the creation of the story, the visuals and the locations… all of those things. Wonder Woman 1984 Movie Review: Gal Gadot Lassos Some Much Needed Cheer At The End of a Terrible Year...

    WITH Christmas day just around the corner, you might be in the mood for a little festive cheer - in the form of some classic carols, of course. Nikki Spears, 31, from London has devised a fiendishly difficult new emoji quiz, challenging players to identify all 15 of these well-known Christmas tracks... so how quickly can you name them all? 3Can you identify the famous Christmas carols from these emojis? The "self professed trivia geek" began offering up cryptic emoji quizzes during lockdown earlier this year and has shared her latest with Femail, just in time for the annual celebration.

While some might be instantly recognisable others are infuriatingly difficult, and you might need a second set of eyes to complete it. Think...
    Pfizer submitted to the FDA for emergency approval on November 23. This is how many people have died since then from COVID A Johns Hopkins professor has slammed the FDA for taking so long to review the Pfizer vaccine while thousands of Americans continue to die from COVID.  Pfizer announced in early November that its vaccine was effective after a widespread global trial involving 44,000 volunteers,  It submitted its findings to the FDA for approval on November 23 but has still not been approved. Since then, 34,000 Americans have died from the virus.  Writing for Med Page Today on Thursday, Martin Makary MD said there was no reason for the delay.  'There's a war on, but you'd never know it from the agency's weeks-long review.  'We are in a health emergency. The U.S. will soon exceed 3,000 deaths per day from COVID-19 and in the time that the FDA has been...
    When future historians recount the medical advances of the 21st century, a crowning achievement will surely be the swift development of COVID-19 vaccines to prevent the disease. So why is it so hard to deliver drugs that can treat it? Despite more than 14 million infections and 277,825 deaths, the United States has struggled to channel its expertise, energy, focus and resources into clinical trials for medicines that could reduce misery and save lives. “We need better drugs. We want this to be an entirely curable disease,” said Dr. Annie F. Luetkemeyer, an infectious disease physician at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. There is no cure yet for COVID-19. So far, the nation has produced only four new therapies that seem to ease the symptoms – remdesivir, dexamethasone and two types of monoclonal antibody treatments. For the vast majority of patients with mild or moderate disease, there’s not a single drug...
    Mandel Ngan/AFP, Getty The Washington Post contacted all the Republican members of Congress to ask whether they accept Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 election, and reported that only 25 definitively agree. President Donald Trump responded to that report by saying he’s surprised there are even that many. The report shows that most Republicans did not respond to the questions from the Washington Post. However they counted 25 who say that Biden won and 2 who say Trump won. WaPo’s Phillip Rucker tweeted the story, and Trump quote tweeted it to reply that he’s “surprised there are so many.” “Please send me a list of the 25 RINOS,” he tweeted. “I read the Fake News Washington Post as little as possible!” 25, wow! I am surprised there are so many. We have just begun to fight. Please send me a list of the 25 RINOS. I read the...
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Bucs made it close, but they fell to the defending champs Sunday afternoon in Tampa 27-24. The Bucs are now 7-5, and continue to fall more and more behind the NFC South-leading Saints, who waxed the quarterback-less Denver Broncos. Despite what the score says, the game against the Kansas City Chiefs wasn’t close until the fourth quarter, and even then it never felt like the Bucs had a chance. It really was almost as if two different teams that came out of the locker room: the Tampa Bay Three-and-Outs to start the game and the actual Bucs in the second half (the Brady bunch outscored the Chiefs 17-7 after halftime but was outscored 20-7 in the first). Offensively TB12 continued to struggle with consistency, throwing a pair of interceptions in the third quarter while throwing for three touchdowns and 345 yards. The difference between Brady and...
    Months away from President-elect Joe Biden taking office, in the heart of a global pandemic and mass unemployment rates, there are countless reasons to critique and call out Republicans. Not least among them, Donald Trump. Selfish leadership, hateful rhetoric, and policies that leave countless Americans in the dust are the name of Trump’s game. There’s a whole lot about him to call out. Unfortunately, a lot of people go the quickest and easiest route: his weight.  Criticizing someone’s weight is easy. It takes almost no effort or mental gymnastics to pull it off. It’s almost certain to get you some ‘likes’ on Twitter. Why? Because fatphobia is very, very ingrained in our collective understanding of humor. But it doesn’t have to be.  A hard, but important, truth: Trump—and anyone else—would not be a better leader (or person) if he were thinner. He would not be a kinder person if he were thinner....
    New York Yankees History: Why are there so many star Yankee players not in the Hall of Fame? By: William Parlee November 28, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees have had some of the best players in baseball in their 107-year glorious history. Many of those players are in the American Baseball Hall of Fame, but many Yankee greats are not. Many wonder why players like Thurman Munson, Bernie Williams, and Andy Pettitte aren’t in that prestigious group of baseball immortals. Although many believe the baseball writers who select and vote on the nominees have a bias against the Yankees, there is no simple answer. I can’t verify or deny that notion. Players are currently inducted into the Hall of Fame through election by either the Baseball Writers’ Association of America (or BBWAA) or the Veterans Committee, which now consists of four subcommittees of...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo accepting a special Emmy Award for his televised briefings during the coronavirus pandemic is "so insulting" to people who lost loved ones from the virus, Fox News senior meterologist Janice Dean told "The Story" Monday.  "I wish he had begun his acceptance speech with, 'I'm sorry for your loss,' something that we have never heard from this governor," Dean, who lost both parents-in-law to COVID-19, told host Martha MacCallum.  More than 33,000 people have died from COVID-19 in New York, more than any other state in the union.  The governor received the Founders Award from the International Academy of TElevision Arts and Sciences earlier Monday "in recognition of his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and his masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world."

    Gov. J.B. Pritzker is pleading with Illinois residents to just “hang in there” and be vigilant in the remaining months before a COVID-19 vaccine arrives. Illinois’ Tier 3 mitigations take effect at midnight and are in effect for at least two weeks. In that time, the state will track the positivity rates and hospital capacity metrics in regions over a 14-day monitoring period to determine if mitigations can be relaxed, if additional mitigations are required, or if current mitigation should remain in place. The new restrictions affect the personal care, fitness, manufacturing, retail, hotel, bar and restaurant, recreation, business, and recreation sectors. With news that multiple companies are nearing a vaccine that would be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Pritzker said he understood the fatigue Illinois residents were feeling but begged them to continue vigilance. “We are close, folks. We are close,” he said....

    Former acting DNC chair Donna Brazile teared up on Fox News Saturday reacting to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris‘ historic election victory. “I’m deeply happy, gratified, I’m rejoicing,” she said. “But I’m also well aware that the country, we still have huge divisions. I think if there’s a mandate out of any of this, it’s a mandate to unify our country, to bring the American people together and I know Joe Biden very, very well. I know Kamala Harris extremely well. And I do believe that they will uphold that position that they want to redeem the soul, bring the country together, heal these divisions.” After Fox played the video of Harris on the phone with Biden reacting to their win, Brazile started to cry and said, “It’s been a long time coming.” “I thought about my mom and my grandmother this morning. They didn’t have the right to...
    There is so far no evidence of massive voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election as President Trump has claimed, Fox News' Chris Wallace said Friday. “You heard John Roberts just said there is a debate in the White House. Some people are saying give up gracefully, talk about the unity of the nation and concede the election. That doesn’t seem to be certainly based on what the president said around 6:30 eastern last night,” the host of "Fox News Sunday" told “America’s Newsroom.” Wallace said Trump has “every right to challenge the election count in a lot of these states.” “So far, you’re not seeing the kind of mass fraud of a scale that would be enough to overturn an election that would lead to victory,” Wallace said. Wallace said the difference between the 2000 Bush-Gore legal dispute over the Florida electoral process and the current situation is that it had a legitimate issue: the margin...
    Georgia's Secretary of State on Friday said there would be a recount because the margin is so tight, even as votes continued to be counted.  There are still 5,500 votes outstanding in Georgia.  Of the 5million that have already been counted, Trump and Biden are neck-and-neck with 49.4% of the vote each.  Whatever happens now, it will be too close a race for there not to be an automatic recount,  Brad Raffensperger said at a press conference.  'As of 10am, there were a little under 5500 votes to be counted. There are 8.890 military ballots outstanding that will be counted if they are returned by the close of business today.  'Right now Georgia remains too close to call. We'll have a margin of a few thousand. The focus of our office for now remains on making sure that every legal vote is counted accurately.  'We can begin to look towards our...
    Richard Pildes November 4, 2020 9:50AM (UTC) This article was originally published on The Conversation. As I've Zoom-traveled the country speaking about legal issues involving the election, I have found myself, as well as audiences, bewildered and frustrated by one underlying question: Why is there so much legal uncertainty about so many critical questions concerning the rules for resolving a disputed presidential election? If ever a need existed for clear legal rules established in advance, before we know whose ox will be (Al) Gored, that situation is it. : Let me provide just one critical example. The Constitution does not create rules or an institutional structure for resolving a modern, disputed presidential election. It provides a fail-safe mechanism for only one situation, which has not happened since 1824: If no candidate gets the necessary majority of votes in the Electoral College, then the House picks the president from the...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The manhunt is on for the hit-and-run driver that put a 22-year-old woman in the hospital.

I was on the way to get my nails done.” The silver van’s driver didn’t even hit the brakes. Tunnell was standing, waiting for the bus when she was hit. The impact was so severe, her body was tossed some 40 feet across the intersection. “All I remember is sitting up after I was hit and an off-duty officer was actually driving behind her,”...

    One of North Dakota’s latest COVID-19 fatalities was buried on Wednesday afternoon but remains on the ballot for the state legislature in the November elections. Known in his motor racing days as “Dakota Dave,” 55-year-old David Andahl is on the ballot as a Republican candidate in the box marked “State Representative District 08.” His name is two inches to the right of the name Donald J. Trump in the adjacent box marked “President and Vice President of the United States.” In a campaign TV ad, Andahl described himself as a Trump supporter. He was not dissuaded when it became known that Trump had been aware back in February that COVID-19 is deadly and yet continued to compare it to the flu, dismissing it as just another Democratic hoax.Michael DalySpecial Correspondent@MichaelDalynycmichael.daly@thedailybeast.comGot a tip?

    The day Donald Trump was elected president, Barbara Bollier’s own political future was also at risk. She was a moderate Republican in Kansas then, the kind of politician that had been largely pushed aside by conservatives in her own party. But that didn’t stop the retired anesthesiologist and then state representative from trying to catapult herself to an open state Senate seat held by the GOP in a district favorable to her centrist approach. After a stressful campaign against a Democratic opponent, Bollier would go on to win the office representing a district on the Kansas side of the Kansas City suburbs. And Trump would go on to be president.
    Hollywood star Sandra Oh says she will not return to the long-running medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy”, even if the show was ending. The 49-year-old actor owes much of her success to the Shonda Rhimes-created series in which she played the role of the sharp and ambitious Dr Cristina Yang. Oh, who won a best-supporting actress Golden Globe for the part in 2006, wrapped her 10-season run on the show in 2015.

    Dr. Sean Conley, a Navy commander who serves as Donald Trump's personal physician, said he was trying to 'reflect the upbeat attitude' of the president and the medical team when he didn't disclose certain details about the president's condition on Saturday. But, after a briefing on Sunday at Walter Reed Medical Center, where President Trump is being treated, several crucial questions about the president's health remain unanswered.  Conley gave an upbeat assessment on Saturday but, after that briefing, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said Trump went through a 'very concerning' period on Friday. On Sunday, Conley addressed the differences.   'I was trying to reflect the upbeat attitude of the team, that the president, that his course of illness has had,' he said.  He added that he 'didn't want to give any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction. And in doing so, came off...
    Getty It appears that the Rose Garden event to honor Judge Amy Coney Barrett as the next potential Supreme Court Justice might have led to the spread of coronavirus among numerous politicians, including the president himself. Trump confirmed he and his wife Melania had tested positive for COVID-19 early Friday morning. Shortly after, the president of Notre Dame confirmed that he, too, had tested positive for the virus. Hope Hicks and Senator Mike Lee have also tested positive for the virus. All of these people were present at the Rose Garden event, during which the majority of people present did not wear masks or observe social distancing protocol. The White House has not released a statement acknowledging the rising speculation that the Rose Garden ceremony for Barrett became a super spreader event for COVID-19. Here’s what you need to know: Photos & Videos Show the Majority of Rose...
    The allegation that the president’s most recent campaign manager beat his wife hardly even made a ripple in the swirling sea of news upon which we now ride every day. But it should have, and the fact that it didn’t shows how steeped in misogyny Trumpworld is. On Sunday, Brad Parscale was the third of Trump’s campaign managers to be arrested. But this arrest was unlike the other two. This arrest wasn’t like the arrest of Steve Bannon for federal fraud charges or the arrest of Paul Manafort after “being convicted or pleading guilty to a broad array of charges including bank and tax fraud, witness tampering and conspiracy against the United States.” No, the arrest of Brad Parscale was very different than the arrest of the president’s two other campaign managers. Because on Sunday, Brad Parscale was arrested on allegations of domestic violence. The Trump campaign is no...
    REUTERS/Brian Snyder Simone Biles has a wide array of tricks in her arsenal that none of her opponents can perform. But the 23-year-old's latest stunt is so unprecedented that there isn't currently a way to score it in official competition. Biles posted a video of herself attempting a triple back pike — and pulling off all three rotations — into a foam pit in honor of National Gymnastics Day on Saturday. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Simone Biles has long been pulling off tricks that her opponents wouldn't dare to try in competition, but her latest undertaking may be her most ambitious yet.

    2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden dropped his usual pitch for bipartisanship, ripping top Senate Republicans for their perceived hypocrisy regarding Supreme Court appointments in election years. Biden, the two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware senator, on Sunday hit President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell over their decision to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death Friday "without delay" before the Nov. 3 general election. "To jam this nomination through the Senate is just an exercise in raw political power, and I don't believe the people of this nation will stand for it," Biden told reporters Sunday in Philadelphia. "If President Trump wants to put forward a name now, the Senate should not act until after the American people select their next president, their next Congress, their next Senate, "he added. "If I win this election, President Trump's nominee should be withdrawn....

    Washington, D.C. (CNN)Following a summer of political activism and frustration around Covid-19, young people say they're channeling their energy and dissatisfaction with the current political system into voter engagement. But with in-person campus life largely at a halt, they're facing a new challenge of connecting with their peers from afar.Students at colleges and universities across the country have drawn up new plans for voter engagement and built innovative ways to reach their classmates.Much like other parts of life amid the pandemic, social media and video calls may take the place of tabling in the quad or knocking on doors to get out the vote.This past weekend, a group of college-aged grassroots organizers convened Generation Democracy, an online conference to mobilize young people as voters, volunteers and organizers. Organizers with NextGen America have led virtual drag shows and online rallies via Twitch and even Animal Crossing to engage voters. And a...

    (CNN)With the naming of Tropical Storm Vicky on Monday morning, this leaves only one name on the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season list -- Wilfred. So what will the next storm be named, after Wilfred?For what is likely to be only the second time in recorded history, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) will have to use the Greek alphabet for additional storm names. In 2005, the NHC had to use six letters off the Greek alphabet to account for the record number of storms. Four of those systems reached tropical storm strength (Alpha, Gamma, Delta, and Zeta), while the two other storms reached hurricane strength (Beta and Epsilon). The NHC does not use the letters Q, U, X, Y, and Z because there aren't enough names to fill those letters. But will there be more storms?The 2005 season went into the Greek alphabet.

    Caitlyn Jenner said that being transgender was not “a big part” of her split from ex-wife Kris Jenner, as she discussed the breakdown of her marriage on Rob Lowe’s Literally! podcast. “There were so many other bigger issues out there” that contributed to the breakup, she explained. “Because of my frustration with myself I might have been a little bit shorter with her, you know, near the end. But there was a lot, boy there was a lot of things going on — and then all of a sudden we didn’t have any issues,” said Caitlyn in the podcast. The former Olympian announced her separation from Kris — with whom she shares two children, supermodel Kendall Jenner and make-up maven Kylie Jenner — in October 2013, as The Daily Mail noted. Two years later, Caitlyn, who was known as Bruce at the time, publicly announced her gender transition in the...

    (CNN)It's back-to-school season, and no one has figured out yet what to do for kids, or their parents. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos wrote to the nation's parents Wednesday that the administration supports whatever people want to do. "Each of you needs to be able to choose what's best for your own families because you know your children and their circumstance better than anyone," DeVos wrote in the letter. "Your child. Your school. Your way."But the reality is that most students, and most parents, don't really have choices.

    The head of the American Conservative Union, Matt Schlapp, offered up a classic case of “Whataboutism” when confronted with the felonious record of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign staff, which includes five different people convicted of federal crimes and one more currently under indictment for wire fraud. Speaking with MSNBC’s Ari Melber about the first night of the Republican National Convention, Schlapp tried to parry the alarming number of Trump associates who have run afoul of the law, the latest being former 2016 Trump campaign chair Steve Bannon, arrested for embezzlement just last week. “[Trump] basically did what he told us he would do and what he has to do in this convention is two things,” Schlapp said. “Tell people what he wants to do in a second term and the people around him who are speaking need to showcase Donald Trump, the person, the individual, and why it’s important for him to be...

    For some, the story can be told exclusively in grit and feistiness — your Miami Marlins, for example. The Marlins have no players, they hadn’t played a game in nine days before Tuesday night, and yet they shut out the Orioles, 4-0.

Not with the team they have, not with the expectations they harbor.

    One of Bo Derek’s passions has been giving back to our veterans. And for the actress, who became a sex symbol overnight with her 1979 film “10,” the cause hits close to home. Her father, Paul Collins, was a radio operator during the Korean War. Both her stepfather and late husband, actor/director John Derek, were also veterans. “I remember I ran into then the secretary of veterans affairs, Anthony Principi, and he tells me about the rehabilitation events for disabled veterans,” the 63-year-old told Fox News. “These are incredibly moving events. And yet they were having trouble going because some people, perhaps, maybe were uncomfortable - we’re talking about 400 people with all kinds of disabilities. Well, my stepmom is quadriplegic, so I already had a comfort level, I guess.” “But when I went to my first Snowmass event, I was moved,” she continued. “Just seeing 400 disabled veterans and...
    Before COVID-19 hit, Mary Daniel of Jacksonville, Florida, visited her husband, Steve, every day at Rosecastle at Deerwood, a memory care facility where he is a resident. But months into the state's lockdown prohibiting their visits, Mary noticed Steve's health was declining due to his isolation. So, because the facility could not allow visitors, Mary came up with a work-around: She's now employed there.What are the details?Mary explained to WFLA-TV that she went 114 days without seeing Steve because of the lockdown. "We did two window visits but they're incredibly difficult," she told the outlet. "He cried at both of them, and so it was a difficult decision that I really made that this wasn't in his best interest." Steve has early onset Alzheimer's, and Mary became concerned about the toll that isolation was taking on his health since they couldn't see one another. The couple have...
    As I wrote nearly three years ago: “Perhaps the second greatest libel — and certainly the most widespread — is that America is a racist country that oppresses its minorities and women. We can call it the American Libel.” (The greatest libel was the infamous blood libel, the fabricated charge spread in Europe for hundreds of years by Christian anti-Semites that Jews kill Christian children to use their blood to bake matzos — unleavened bread — for Passover.) But if America is so racist, why are there so many race hoaxes? Virtually every time we read about a swastika painted on a door, or a noose hanging from a tree to taunt blacks, it turns out to be either a false alarm or, more frequently, a hoax. Here are a dozen examples: No. 1: The Duke lacrosse team (2006): Three white members of the Duke University lacrosse team were falsely...

    The worldwide conspiracy is vast — so vast that most of the world’s scientists, journalists and political leaders are in on it. Somehow, in all this time, not a single one of the hundreds of thousands, possibly millions, of conspirators has grown a conscience and decided to blow the whistle on the conspiracy. Their goal? To ruin everything that right-wing America holds dear: the nuclear family, NFL football, needlessly enormous vehicles, the specials menu at Hooters. To accomplish this dastardly goal, the conspiracy will fabricate a worldwide threat. They will falsify the data and use the power of institutions like governments and universities and scientific journals to perpetuate this hoax, tricking billions of people into believing this threat is real and needs a drastic response. The only people in the world who see through the hoax are right-wing Americans, of course, who know what lengths the “socialist left” will go to in order to...
    Remarkable aerial pictures show pink-colored snow in the Presena glacier in the Italian Alps. A number of news reports say the strange pink snow in the glacier near Pellizano is the result of the algae Ancylonela nordenskioeldii, which is typically found in Greenland. However, Biagio Di Mauro, a researcher at the Institute of Polar Sciences in Italy’s National Research Council tweeted that the pink snow was probably the result of Chlamydomonas nivalis, which is a snow alga. Ancylonema nordenskioeldii, he explained, is a glacier alga. The phenomenon is quite common in the Alps, Di Mauro tweeted.

    The director of a Wuhan virus laboratory linked to the coronavirus pandemic has claimed that no viruses could have escaped from the lab because it is highly secure. Dr Yuan Zhiming, director of the state-run P4 virus lab in Wuhan, said 'not a mosquito can fly into the building without authorisation' as he ensured the lab's top-level safety measures on state TV. The Wuhan Institute of Virology, which keeps more than 1,500 strains of deadly viruses, has become the centre of controversy amid the global health crisis. Some theories claim the novel coronavirus might have originated there out of concerns over its management.

    Igor Derysh July 3, 2020 4:00PM (UTC) Many police reformers have pointed to Camden, New Jersey, as a model for overhauling police departments around the nation in response to protests over police killings of unarmed Black people. But unlike the current community-based initiatives seen in many cities after the George Floyd killing, Camden's decision to dismantle its police was partly prompted by Republican budget cuts — and the results have been more complicated than its proponents admit. As Black Lives Matter protesters call to reallocate police budgets to social services, which the Minneapolis City Council has vowed to do, and build relationships with the communities the departments serve, Camden has been touted as a success story after dissolving its city police department in 2013. More recently, Camden Police Chief Joseph Wysocki drew praise for marching alongside protesters during the Floyd protests. Former President Barack Obama praised the city's reforms in 2015,...

    ARNOLD, Pa. (KDKA) – Investigators say they found guns, drugs and children after a recent raid on a home in Arnold. They also found money in some interesting places. It was earlier this week when Rob Coutch’s attention was drawn to some surprising visitors to the home across the street. “I came out and there were at least two Arnold units, a New Ken unit and a lot of plain-clothed folks standing on the porch knocking on the door. The house at 1809 Kimball Avenue was the target of an apparent drug raid by state and local law enforcement. “We had no idea,” said Coutch. “No idea whatsoever.” According to investigators from the state attorney general’s office and the Arnold Police Department, several large bags of suspected drugs, packing material, a scale and a gun were all removed from the home. They also found four children — the youngest...
    Report: Kaepernick drawing interest from multiple teams Queen Letizia paired a $26 Zara dress with $68 shoes for a visit to the Canary Islands Opinion: Why there;s so much drama about when to claim Social Security © Robert D. Barnes / Getty   No wonder there’s such wide disagreement about the optimal age at which to begin receiving Social Security. Load Error Seemingly trivial differences in how you ask the question lead to dramatically different responses. You get one answer if you frame the issue in terms of how long soon-to-be retirees must live before they make up the income they lose by not claiming their Social Security benefits at age 62. And you get quite another if you frame the issue in terms of how much less their monthly payment will be if they start receiving benefits before reaching the maximum retirement age of 70. These two...
    As the Republican National Committee moves its convention to Florida, 58 per cent of voters in Jacksonville claimed in a poll released Wednesday that they don't want the events to take place there. While six in 10 are against the convention being held in their hometown, 42 per cent of respondents in the University of North Florida poll said they support the move of location.

But of independent voters, 62 percent said in the survey taken June 17-22 that they were opposed to the convention being held there.

Please consider supporting Press Watch by making a donation. Donald Trump wasn't joking when he complained the other night that increased testing for the coronavirus was resulting in more reported cases. Nor was he joking when he said that he told "his people" to "slow the testing down, please." The only question is whether he actually did it, or just thought about doing it. : Either way, however, the real outrage is that "his people" couldn't necessarily slow things down if he asked them. That's because, in defiance of public health experts, Trump has repeatedly refused to support anything close to an actual national testing program. He has consistently refused to launch a massive federal effort to develop supply-chain capacity to test more Americans, although that...

    Savannah Rychcik June 23, 2020 0 Comments Former U.S. national security advisor John Bolton is not so sure President Donald Trump will be willing to make the transfer out of office easy if he is unable to win the upcoming election.
