    More details have emerged as to why rowdy Australian Open fans interrupted the official post-match presentation by booing tennis chiefs.  Tennis Australia executive Jayne Hrdlicka faced a tough crowd when she took to the podium following the men's final at Rod Laver Arena on Sunday night to commend the hundreds of players who battled it out in the Melbourne grand slam over the last fortnight. She was forced to pause her speech several times after being drowned out by the vocal crowd who have faced challenging times in the last 12 months during the coronavirus pandemic. Ms Hrdlicka sparked controversy early on in her address by mentioning the coronavirus vaccine rollout, which began in Australia on Monday. Her comments were met with a few boos from a small section of the crowd which were eventually drowned out by cheers. But the boos became even louder a minute later as Ms Hrdlicka thanked...

    Erin Andrews didn’t think twice about Jimmy Garoppolo uttering “baby” during a 2019 post-game interview.  Appearing Tuesday on the “Endless Hustle” podcast, the Fox Sports broadcaster, 42, recalled the now-viral moment – in which the 49ers quarterback said, “Feels great, baby,” after improving to 8-0 on the season. “Not sure if anyone knows this, but my husband was on the field when it happened,” Andrews said of former NHL player Jarret Stoll. “He was behind our camera guy on Fox, holding my phone taking a picture. Jimmy G. knew my husband was right there,” she continued. Garoppolo, who helped lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl berth last season, dropped the comments on-air, prompting a laugh from Andrews.

    Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri says he wasn't trying to overturn Joe Biden's electoral win when he voted not to count votes from two states that Biden carried over President Trump. Hawley has faced funding boycotts, calls for his resignation, the loss of a publishing contract, and public criticism for his role in the events leading up to the congressional counting of the electoral votes and the January 6 MAGA riot in the Capitol. He was pictured raising his fist to protesters that day before the violent storming of the Capitol that left six dead, including a Capitol police officer.  'I was very clear from the beginning that I was never attempting to overturn the election,' Hawley told CNN.

    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he “wasn’t real, real happy” about the negotiations leading to the most recent NFL labor agreement as he discussed why he’s no longer a team player representative. The NFL Players Association sent out a tweet last week noting that kicker Mason Crosby was the Packers’ new player representative, with linebacker Oren Burks, guard Lucas Patrick and cornerback Jaire Alexander as alternates. Rodgers had been serving as the team’s player rep, though he added Wednesday that “I can’t say I was heavily involved.” “I think it’s time for somebody else to take that role who wants to spend a week of their life sitting in meetings and going through all that,” the 36-year-old Rodgers said Wednesday. “To me, it’s just not what I want to do at this point in my career.” Rodgers had been one of the...
    Naomi Campbell shared some curious content with her 9.8 million Instagram followers on Tuesday morning. Campbell posted an article from The Things titled “Here’s Why Fans Are Starting To Think Tyra Banks Is The Real Mean Girl, Not Naomi Campbell” — which raised eyebrows because of the models’ tense past. “Naomi Campbell is MESSY. Lmfaoooooo!!!!” one user posted. “The tyra vs naomi beef will alway shave [sic] a special place in my heart,” another penned.

Last year, Banks opened up to the Wall Street Journal about her relationship with Campbell but...
    A former aide to Vice President Mike Pence said that the White House "never cared" about the coronavirus and that his chief of staff, who contracted the coronavirus, was "the No. 1 person to act like COVID wasn't real." During an interview on CNN's Situation Room, former homeland security adviser Olivia Troye said she wasn't surprised that Marc Short and several other White House aides have recently tested positive for COVID-19. "I worked very closely with Marc Short. He was the No. 1 person to act like COVID wasn't real, and when you set the tone on the vice president's team in that manner as a chief of staff, you're going to put everyone around you at risk, including the vice president, who I'm not convinced is completely out of the woods right now," she said. .@OliviaTroye reacts to the outbreak among Pence's advisors."I worked closely with Marc Short,...
    Boulder-based Augustus stumbled into the music world not long after guitarist Jim Herlihy and singer Colin Kelly got drunk at a concert together in 2013. "It was the classic 'get wasted at a show and think how great it would be to start your own band,'" says Herlihy with a laugh. Now 37, Herlihy says he played guitar in college but never imagined performing in real venues. "I didn’t realize I could make the jump from just someone who plays the guitar in your bedroom to someone who could play live.

    Career transitions are equal parts scary and exhilarating. And if transformation is truly what you desire, then there are few reasons not to take a chance. Life is too short not to do what you love. How do I know? Well, I went through a significant career transition. After spending over a decade working for NASA as an electrical engineer, I received my real estate license. Making the radical move from rocket scientist to real estate professional wasn’t an easy transition. There’s no doubt that guiding astronauts on the International Space Station to repair their equipment in space is a far cry from guiding home buyers and sellers on their real estate journeys. What helped me the most was figuring out how to apply the lessons learned in my first career to my blooming real estate career.

    MADRID (AP) — Everyone seemed pleased when Real Madrid sealed the deal to loan Gareth Bale to Tottenham this weekend. It was a transfer that all parts wanted to make happen — Bale wasn’t happy in Madrid and the club didn’t plan on using him. But a day after the Wales forward officially returned to the Premier League, Madrid struggled in attack in its Spanish league opener, sparking questions about the club’s moves in the offseason. The defending champions were held to a 0-0 draw by Real Sociedad on Sunday, when the focus was on the team’s attacking struggles. “In general, we did well. The only thing missing was the goal and a bit of a killer instinct up top, particularly when the chances came our way,” Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. “Ultimately we struggled to create chances, particularly in the second half. In the first half, we had three...

As quoted by Sportskeeda, Styles revealed that he wasn’t happy with the direction Hogan took TNA, aka Impact Wrestling, in when the Hall of Famer joined the company in 2009. According to Styles, he wasn’t pleased with the additions Hogan made to the roster. He also stated that he was against the legendary performer changing the company’s wrestling setup at first. “So I remember when Hogan came to TNA, I heard these rumors that they were going to bring these guys. I go, ‘That’s stupid. You wouldn’t bring in all these guys.’ And then I asked him, but that would never happen, and then he said he’s going to change the ring too. I said, ‘That’s how they’re defined. TNA was defined by that six-sided ring, that’s who they were, that’s what made them...

    A REAL-LIFE “mermaid” who used to lie in tin foil to boost her tan has now got skin cancer and been left with scabs over her face.  Business owner and yoga instructor, Stephanie Huff, 46, from California, used to refuse to wear suncream and SPF as it would “break the illusion”.  9'Real-life mermaid' Stephanie Huff was left with skin cancer and face scabs after refusing to wear suncream Credit: MDWfeatures/Stephanie Huff Stephanie was dedicated to topping up her tan in her twenties and early thirties and would lie in the sun on foil covered in baby oil to gain a healthy glow.

    (CNN)President Donald Trump has termed the richly reported stories that the Russians paid Afghan militants bounties to kill US soldiers based in Afghanistan a "hoax." Peter BergenBut the real hoax is how White House officials are covering up for Trump's incompetence as commander in chief who is responsible for the welfare of the US military and who has consistently maintained a bizarre bromance with a former KGB officer, Russian President Vladimir Putin.On Monday White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said of the intelligence surrounding the Russian bounties, "there were dissenting opinions within the intelligence community, and it would not be elevated to the president until it was verified." Robert O' Brien, Trump's national security adviser, similarly tweeted that because the intelligence hadn't been "verified" the president wasn't briefed.But this explanation makes no sense at all. Presidents get plenty of unverified information. Intelligence is not like mathematics where 2+2 can always...
    Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference is normally an energetic, bustling affair. This year, of course, things are anything but normal. Instead of live talks in front of full crowds and attendees mingling face to face, WWDC was a virtual-only experience. During the keynote address, execs rattled off their announcements in pre-recorded video segments filmed on a very empty Apple campus. The slick, occasionally eerie production was a glimpse into just how lonely the tech world has become. This week on Gadget Lab, WIRED senior associate editor Julian Chokkattu joins us to talk about everything Apple announced and what this very weird WWDC means for the future of the tech conference.
