    In California: Stay-at-home order likely to be extended, and a powerful storm hits SoCal Australia all out for 200, India need 70 to win second Test 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan discusses Jimmy Garoppolo’s future © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Kyle Shanahan firmly believes that Jimmy Garoppolo will be the 49ers' QB next season. Jimmy Garoppolo has been limited to only six games in 2020, and with the veteran quarterback accounting for more than $53 million in cap charges in 2021 and 2022 (vs. only $4.2 million in potential dead cap), there have naturally been some questions about whether he’ll stick around San Francisco. On Monday, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan put the kibosh on rumors. Shanahan told reporters that he believes “Jimmy’s going to be our quarterback next year” (via Matt Barrows of The Athletic on Twitter). The head coach was also quick to dismiss Garoppolo’s salary, noting that...

On Monday, coach Kyle Shanahan once again fielded questions about Garoppolo’s future with the 49ers. He made clear that he envisions Garoppolo as San Francisco's starter in 2021, but cited one interesting factor behind that. #49ers coach Kyle Shanahan gave a detailed answer when asked why he expressed such certainty that Jimmy Garoppolo will be his quarterback in 2021.

    The Washington Football Team on Monday announced it has released quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. The former Ohio State Buckeye was taken with the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. "This afternoon I met with Dwayne and informed him that we would be releasing him, head coach Ron Rivera said in a statement. "I told him that I believe it benefits both parties that we go our separate ways. We want to thank Dwayne for his contributions these last two seasons and wish him well moving forward." The move comes one day after Haskins was benched mid-game in favor of third string quarterback Taylor Heinicke and just hours after it was announced Heinicke was being bumped up to second string. Rivera said during a press conference on Monday that Heinicke will take over quarterbacking duties next week if starter Alex Smith is still unable to play due to injury....
    The Washington Football Team cut ties with Dwayne Haskins on Monday afternoon, a mere 20 months after taking Haskins in the first round out of Ohio State. The release comes less than 24 hours after Haskins struggled and was benched for Washington in a Week 16 loss to the Panthers. In the past week, Haskins was involved with reported maskless attendance at a strip club, a $40K fine, being stripped of his WFT captaincy, being benched and now finally being released. Haskins officially goes on waivers following the Monday transaction. In a statement, Washington coach Ron Rivera said, “This afternoon I met with Dwayne and informed him that we would be releasing him. I told him that I believe it benefits both parties that we go our separate ways.” Here’s more about what transpired with Haskins that led to his release.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have a delicious decision ahead of them this week: Do they play their starters in their regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Chargers, keeping them sharp for the postseason? Or do they give them an extra week of rest after clinching the AFC’s No. 1 seed on Sunday. The answer isn’t quite as clear as it may seem. Yes, the Chiefs (14-1) have enough injuries to keep the training staff busy long into the night, so those guys will gladly have an extra week to recuperate. But for guys such as Patrick Mahomes and Tyrann Mathieu, the risk in taking that extra week off is that the Chiefs also have the AFC’s lone first-round bye, and that means two weeks without a game. In other words, rest vs. rust? “We can use that as a healing time, get ourselves back...
    A group of New Jersey fishing businesses and organizations sent a letter to New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy this month urging him to keep the seafood industry’s workers as a high-priority group for COVID-19 vaccinations. Seafood employees, like others in the food processing industry, are considered essential workers. According to guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that group falls in Phase 1b, along with public transit employees, first responders as well as teachers and other school staff. Those federal guidelines, though, stand just as a recommendation as the states will be making the call on who gets priority. New Jersey’s COVID-19 vaccination plan calls for defining the essential workers group in early 2021. The state says it plans to follow the CDC recommendations, but it’s expected there will be more intended recipients than available vaccines. With that anticipated shortage, officials believe they’ll need...
    Federal stimulus checks are prepared for printing at the Philadelphia Financial Center May 8.Jeff Fusco | Getty Images News | Getty Images Another round of stimulus payments is on the way for the millions of Americans financially struggling because of the public health crisis. President Donald Trump on Sunday night signed a $900 billion coronavirus relief package into law, days after he suggested he would block the bill if the stimulus checks weren't raised to $2,000, from $600. (That never happened: House Republicans quickly shot down Democrats' attempts at passing $2,000 payments.) The last sweeping aid package Congress passed in March, the $2.2 trillion CARES Act, authorized stimulus checks of up to $1,200 per person. After months of negotiations between Republicans and Democrats over the shape of the second relief bill, they agreed to make the checks $600.

    THE Second round of stimulus checks will be sent out in days - and will likely reach Americans faster than the first payment after Donald Trump signs bill. On Sunday, President Trump signed off on the $900billion relief bill, ending days of chaos after he initially refused to agree to the bipartisan deal. 5The second round of stimulus checks may arrive faster than the first paymentCredit: Getty Images - Getty Trump signed the long-awaited coronavirus stimulus package at his private club, Mar-a-Lago, in Florida and announced the news in a statement shared by the White House. The announcement came less than a day after some 14million Americans lost their unemployment benefits, which ran out because of the stalemate. The massive bill includes $1.4 trillion to fund government agencies through September and contains other end-of-session priorities such as money for cash-starved transit systems and an increase in food stamp benefits.

    The 2021 trade deadline is still months away, but several crazy trade ideas have already started surfacing in the league. These include the hypothetical blockbuster deal that would send Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry to the New Orleans Pelicans. In the proposed scenario by Greg Patuto of NBA Analysis Network, the Pelicans would be offering a package that includes Lonzo Ball, JJ Redick, Eric Bledsoe, a 2021 first-round pick, a 2023 first-round pick, a 2024 first-round pick, and two 2025 first-rounders. The suggested deal would a no-brainer for the Pelicans, especially if they want to speed up the rebuilding process and immediately contend for the NBA championship title. Pairing Curry with Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson would dramatically change their fate in the 2020-21 NBA season, giving them a lethal trio that would lead them to the top of the loaded Western Conference and help them capture the...

Why the Rams have traded away so many first-round picks: An inside look at Los Angeles unique draft strategy In the spring of 2016, before he executed the trade with the Tennessee Titans to grab the No. 1 overall pick in that year's draft, Rams general manager Les Snead walked up to director of college scouting Brad Holmes and asked him two questions. © Provided by CBS Sports Would you trade up for a quarterback?

    A popular government-backed small-business loan program to aid companies that have suffered due to the coronavirus is back, with some fixes to earlier flaws in the forgivable, low-interest loans but also several of the same loopholes that can benefit bigger operators over Main Street mom-and pop shops. Washington's latest $900 billion stimulus effort will replenish the Paycheck Protection Program for a third round of funding with $285 billion at a time when small businesses continue to struggle. It was passed by Congress on Monday night after months of political haggling. There is still a question of whether President Donald Trump will sign it after the president released a video on Tuesday night criticizing the COVID-19 relief bill.  The biggest difference in round three? Companies that have previously borrowed from the program and spent the funds are allowed to take out a second loan. So-called "second draw PPP loans" were not...

Mittelstadt was a restricted free agent with no arbitration rights and thus little leverage in negotiations. © Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Buffalo Sabres center Casey Mittelstadt Mittelstadt, 22, is one of the most fascinating players to keep an eye on in Buffalo this season as he enters his third full season.

I would also encourage us to have lots of open discussion about what people’s concerns are and questions,” said Gayles, speaking to reporters just minutes after getting the shot. As to when Montgomery County would receive larger shipments of the vaccine, Gayles said information about that sometimes changes hour to hour, adding, “Our hope is that we will receive a consistent and steady supply of doses moving forward on a weekly basis at minimum.” Wednesday’s shipment is in addition to the supply that six county hospitals “have or will receive” from the state’s...
    Luka Garza is definitely going to be the prohibitive favorite for Naismith Player of the Year. He has been putting up historic stats from the start of this season. While he came close to winning Player of the Year last season, he lost out to Obi Toppin. However, this season is shaping up to be different, and the Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery has spoken about Garza and his standing amongst all-time Iowa greats. The coach said, “I think as I look at some of the guys I’ve coached over the years, and I’ve coached so the really good ones. The thing that I’m impressed with Luka the most is who he’s doing it against, and recognizing that every team is scheming completely to stop him… He’s a guy that he continues to try to perfect his craft.

    UFC: What happened to Marlon Moraes? By: Daniel Cunningham December 23, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditAt UFC 238, Marlon Moraes (23-8-1) entered the cage as the betting favorite to capture the vacant bantamweight championship. Standing in his way was the promotion’s flyweight champion of the world, Henry Cejudo. Entering UFC 238, Moraes had gone 17-1 in his previous eighteen fights. The lone loss was a split decision to Raphael Assuncao which Moraes emphatically avenged when he stopped Assuncao in the first round of their rematch. Moraes had finished his previous three UFC fights in the first round and many believed he would be too much for Cejudo. In the first round, Moraes was really dominating the fight on the feet. He brutalized Cejudo with low kicks and kicks to the body. Cejudo looked like he was going to be overwhelmed by Moraes. However, he...

    According to a recently proposed trade idea from NBA Analysis Network, the Sacramento Kings and Washington Wizards could swap star shooting guards prior to the March trade deadline, with Bradley Beal going to California and Buddy Hield moving to the nation’s capital in a potential blockbuster deal. As pointed out by the publication, Beal has long been the subject of trade rumors amid talk of the Wizards rebuilding for the future, while Hield’s alleged unhappiness with the Kings has also been well-documented, especially since he was demoted to a sixth man role behind Bogdan Bogdanovic — who has since signed with the Atlanta Hawks. The site stressed that both players could be intriguing targets for many teams, with Hield’s “elite” ability as a three-point shooter making him especially useful to a Wizards team that recently sent John Wall to the Houston Rockets for Russell Westbrook. In the suggested deal, the...

    A second round of stimulus checks will soon be landing in the bank accounts of millions of Americans, thanks to the $900 billion economic relief package that Congressional leaders agreed to on December 20. But there are some significant differences this round, including the amount: $600 per person, half of the $1,200 directed toward most adults in the first round of stimulus checks. Just days ago, it was unclear whether the stimulus package would even include another round of direct checks. But last-minute negotiations cleared the path for a second stimulus check, which consumer advocates have argued is much-needed as millions of Americans continue to struggle with lost wages and jobs amid the worsening coronavirus pandemic. Even so, it's unclear whether the $600 checks will be enough to tide over families until COVID-19 vaccines are widely available and can relieve the economic pressures that have dampened consumer spending and the...

At the time, the Chargers were immersed in their quarterback evaluations and trying to shape up who would be on the board at the sixth pick. “You think the Dolphins like [Justin] Herbert?” he asked. The belief at the time was that Miami was locked onto Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa. But members of the Chargers personnel department wondered...

    According to a recently proposed trade idea, the Miami Heat could improve their chances of returning to the NBA Finals and winning a championship next year by acquiring former All-Star big man Kevin Love from the Cleveland Cavaliers. As explained on Saturday by NBA Analysis Network, the Heat have two “cornerstone players” in Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo and have a number of talented complementary pieces, including Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson. However, the outlet suggested that they could add another such player in Love, given how the Cavaliers’ roster is “constructed in a strange way,” with a backcourt that’s getting younger and a frontcourt that hasn’t followed in the same direction. As recommended by the publication, the Heat could bring Love to Miami by sending two of their veteran role players — center Kelly Olynyk and wingman Andre Iguodala — as well as a 2022 first-round selection to Cleveland....
    The Packers are competing for the top seed in the NFC, which would secure them a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs. Former NFL wide receiver Steve Smith thinks that might not be worthwhile to Green Bay’s players, but not for the reason he thinks. Speaking at halftime of the Bills-Broncos game on Saturday, the former Panthers star made two points: First, he noted that Green Bay (10-3) is in a groove and might be better off not taking a week off. Then Smith concluded his argument by saying that the Packers might as well “play and get paid.” “You don’t get a playoff check if you don’t play that week, so you’re just sitting around and not collecting any money,” Smith said on NFL Network. “Let me play and get paid.” One problem: Smith’s wrong about the money. The Packers will get paid even if they have...

    Getty Running back Aaron Jones #33 of the Green Bay Packers rushes for a touchdown in the second quarter of the game against the Carolina Panthers at Lambeau Field on December 19, 2020 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. A narrow win over the Carolina Panthers has put the Green Bay Packers one step closer to clinching the No. 1 playoff seed in the NFC, but there are still a few outcomes that could help in their pursuit during Sunday’s slate of Week 15 games. The Packers (11-3) continue to control their own destiny as the conference’s top seed following Saturday night’s 24-16 win, holding a half-game advantage over the New Orleans Saints (10-3) along with the head-to-head tiebreaker. No matter what, two straight wins over Tennessee and Chicago will earn them a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. A little cushion can never hurt, though, right? Here’s...

Congress is in eleventh hour talks to green light a second round of stimulus checks for U.S. households. If they do, cash payments could reach many Americans within weeks.Yes, hopes for fresh pandemic aid have been dashed before, but this time really does look to be different. Lawmakers are trying to tie the stimulus package to a federal spending bill that must pass by midnight Sunday, in order to avoid a government shutdown. If Capitol Hill leaders manage to strike a deal to pass the new pandemic aid bill, direct payments of up to $600 per individual could begin this month.

    In the past months, rumors have been continuously swirling around Buddy Hield and his future with the Sacramento Kings. He may be expected to start the 2020-21 NBA season as a King but if his relationship with Coach Luke Walton continues to deteriorate, he could find his way out of Sacramento before the 2021 trade deadline. One of the potential landing spots for Hield is the Houston Rockets. In a recent article, Greg Patuto of NBA Analysis Network came out with a trade idea between the Rockets and the Kings that would bring Hield to Space City before the 2021 trade deadline. In the proposed scenario, the Rockets would be sending a package that includes Eric Gordon, PJ Tucker, a 2021 first-round pick, and a 2023 first-round pick to the Kings in exchange for Hield. If the deal would push through, Patuto believes that it would help both teams in...
    Days before the 2020-21 NBA season officially begins, several interesting trade ideas continue to surface in the league. These don’t only involve legitimate title contenders, but also rebuilding teams that are eyeing to make a huge noise next year. In a recent article, Greg Patuto of NBA Analysis Network suggested a trade idea between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the New York Knicks that would bring an intriguing point guard to Big Apple. In the proposed scenario, the Knicks would be sending a package that includes Frank Ntilikina, Kevin Knox II, a 2021 first-round pick, and a 2023 first-round pick to the Cavaliers in exchange for Collin Sexton. The Knicks may be needing to sacrificing plenty of precious assets in the suggested deal, but Patuto believes that it would greatly benefit the team since it would give them “stability” at the point guard position. “The New York Knicks could use an...
    HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — Gennady Golovkin made his record 21st defensive of his middleweight titles Friday night, knocking down previously unbeaten Kamil Szeremeta four times before their fight was stopped after the seventh round. Golovkin (41-1-1, 36 KOs) surpassed Bernard Hopkins' division record for title defenses and retained his IBF and IBO 160-pound belts with a one-sided victory in his first fight in 14 months. The Kazakh star ended the longest ring absence of his 14-year professional career with a systematic dismantling of Poland's Szeremeta (21-1) at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The 38-year-old Golovkin accepted this mandatory title defense to get back in the ring after a lengthy stretch of inactivity. He also returned to a measure of his dominant form against Szeremeta, who was gamely overmatched. Golovkin started out with an effective jab that evoked memories of his best years in the ring, and he knocked...
    Since assuming the role as the team’s president of basketball operations, Daryl Morey has been informing everyone in the league that the Philadephia 76ers have no intention of breaking the young superstar duo of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. Instead of moving either of them, they are continuously trying to find ways to surround them with quality players that could boost their chances of fully dominating the Eastern Conference and winning the NBA championship title next season. In a recent article, Greg Patuto of NBA Analysis Network came up with a blockbuster trade idea that would enable the Sixers to land a legitimate superstar without including Simmons or Embiid in the package. In the proposed scenario, the Sixers would be sending Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle, a 2021 first-round pick, a 2023 first-round pick, and a 2025 first-round pick to the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for Paul George and Patrick...

    Get to know three-time DWCS alumni, Jamie Pickett. Middleweight Jamie Pickett has finally earned his ticket to the big show after three stints on Dana White’s Contender Series. Pickett most recently earned a UFC contract after finishing Jhonoven Pati via TKO in the second round. In a one-sided performance, Pickett utilized a 22-punch combination to earn the victory and a roster spot. Pickett has won four of his last five fights, with two of them coming inside of the first-round. After losing a controversial decision to Punahele Soriano during the first episode of season three, Pickett’s efforts were good enough to eventually get brought back upon winning an additional fight on the regional circuit. Pickett is 11-4 as a professional, having finished nine fights by KO/TKO or submission. He has only seen the judges four times throughout his career thus far, as he is primarily a finisher in all areas of the sport.Who is...
    By JOHN HANNA and HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH, Associated Press TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Gov. Laura Kelly expressed little concern Friday over a smaller-than-expected second shipment of a coronavirus vaccine for Kansas, adding that she expects the state's plan for distributing shots in coming months to boost an economy that has slowed recently. Kelly said the reduction in the state's second shipment of a vaccine made by Pfizer is “more of a smoothing process" by the federal government to make sure health care workers who received the first of two doses this week can get the second in January. At least a dozen states have reported that they will receive fewer doses next week than anticipated. The governor's comments during a teleconference with local and state officials came as the state Department of Health and Environment reported that Kansas has surpassed 200,000 confirmed and probable coronavirus cases for the pandemic, or about...
    PALO ALTO — More than a hundred Stanford Health Care medical residents and fellows marched through the school’s signature hospital to protest administrators’ rollout plans for the first wave of COVID-19 vaccines, asserting that they were mostly left out in spite of their regular contact with patients infected with the virus. Bolstered by uproarious chants like “First in the room, back of the line,” the Friday morning demonstration spurred a relatively prompt response from hospital leaders, including from Stanford Health Care CEO David Entwhistle, who told the assembled crowd: “We’ll correct it. We know that it’s wrong.” The seeds of the protest were planted earlier this week after Stanford announced how it was going to distribute its initial allocation of vaccines — upwards of 5,000 doses — inspiring a letter to administrators stating that just seven of 1,349 medical residents and fellows, “including those on the front line directly treating...
    SCIOTO — Scioto County is expected to receive its first shipment of COVID-19 vaccines as early as Monday Dec. 21. Local health, education, and emergency management agencies are ready to activate coordinated vaccination plans that follow Ohio Department of Health guidelines. The first supply of vaccines will be limited to frontline medical and public health workers and emergency medical responders. “We need to first protect those who are providing frontline care for our growing number of positive cases,” said Dr. Jerod Walker, Scioto County Health Commissioner. “Vaccines are on the way and will be administered as quickly as possible.” Health officials explained that it will likely take months for the vaccine to become available for everyone, so it is critical that people continue to wear masks, wash their hands, limit the size of gatherings and maintain social distance. “Vaccine will become available in phases, with our medical community receiving the...
    Word is that the Houston Rockets are exploring other James Harden trade partners than the Nets or 76ers. Where else could he go? Reports are that James Harden is seeking a trade to either the Nets or 76ers but both of those options are looking increasingly unlikely. There were reports yesterday that the 76ers were finally open to putting Ben Simmons on the table but that seems like an absurdly obvious leak by the Rockets to put pressure on Philadelphia. Especially when Daryl Morey said later in the evening that they were committed to Simmons. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski also reported that the Rockets were starting to look further afield for teams willing to trade for Harden.

    Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love is expected to be one of the hottest commodities on the market before the 2021 trade deadline. Love may remain committed to the Cavaliers but if they struggle again on his third year as the face of the franchise, they may finally consider moving him and undergo a full-scale rebuild. Once he becomes officially available on the trading block, several teams that are in dire need of additional star power to boost their chances of capturing the Larry O’Brien Trophy next season are expected to express a strong interest in acquiring Love from the Cavaliers, including the Golden State Warriors. In a recent article, Greg Patuto of NBA Analysis Network suggested a blockbuster trade between the Warriors and the Cavaliers that would bring Love to Bay Area before the 2021 trade deadline. In the proposed scenario, Golden State would be sending Andrew Wiggins to...

    By JOHN HANNA and HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH, Associated Press TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Doses from Kansas' first shipment of a COVID-19 vaccine were arriving Thursday in rural Kansas for hospitals to administer to health care workers, though the state expects its second shipment to be smaller than anticipated. The state has received its full shipment of the first of two doses of a vaccine made by Pfizer for 23,750 people, according to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. The state included nursing home workers and residents with at-risk health care workers in the first group to get the shots, but their vaccinations have not yet started, agency spokeswoman Ashley Jones-Wisner said. Jones-Wisner said the federal government told Kansas it would get a second shipment of 29,000 vaccine doses next week, but the state has since learned it will receive 17,750 doses instead. She did not elaborate. Still, hospitals across the...

Victory Barcelona advanced to fifth place, Atletico Madrid are now league leaders on goal difference from Real Sociedad.

    According to a newly proposed trade scenario, the New Orleans Pelicans could upgrade their backcourt by trading for Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry. As explained on Wednesday by NBA Analysis Network, the Pelicans have an “intriguing” lineup with a young core led by Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, and last year’s first overall draft selection, Zion Williamson. However, the outlet recommended that these players, particularly Ingram and Williamson, could benefit from the addition of an established playmaker like Lowry, who has been mentioned in a number of rumored deals in recent months. “One of the biggest reasons for a Pelicans trade for Lowry would be experience. Lowry has won an NBA Finals with the Raptors and he is known for his leadership and energy. Those two things could help propel the Pelicans towards being a potential contender in the Western Conference with all of their young talent.” In its suggested...

    James Harden may have the 76ers on his list of preferred trade destinations, but they’ll reportedly have to give up the farm to land him. The Rockets have asked the 76ers for star guard Ben Simmons and three first-round picks in a potential deal for Harden, according to NBA reporter Yaron Weitzman. Perhaps not surprisingly, the 76ers have not been willing to include Simmons in any proposals thus far, Weitzman reported. Philadelphia would appear to be a natural landing spot for Harden given that new 76ers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey was the Rockets GM who brought the superstar to Houston via trade in the first place. The New York Times reported on Friday that the 76ers are even seen as the “most likely destination” for Harden, 31, once he is finally traded. But the price tag of Simmons and three first-round picks is a hefty one. While the 24-year-old Simmons...

    When James Harden demanded a trade from the Houston Rockets, the Philadelphia 76ers quickly emerged as one of the top landing spots. Since he was hired as the team’s president of basketball operations, there were growing speculations that Daryl Morey wanted to bring “The Beard” with him in the City of Brotherly Love.

    HOUSTON (AP) — A Lim Kim made her first U.S. Women's Open appearance a memorable one Monday, closing with three straight birdies to tie the record for the largest comeback and win the biggest event in women's golf. And in the final major of this pandemic-disrupted year in sports, she won wearing a mask. Starting the final, frigid round at Champions Golf Club five shots behind, the 25-year-old South Korean wore a heavy down jacket between shots and delivered a 4-under 67 for a one-shot victory over Amy Olson and Jin Young Ko. “Still can't really soak in that I'm the champion,” she said, minutes after being soaked in champagne on a day with temperatures in the 40s.

    Louisiana’s unique election system puts the state’s new members of Congress, and therefore the state as a whole, at a disadvantage, U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise said Friday. Scalise addressed a task force the Louisiana Legislature created to consider whether the state should move to closed primaries and what the new system would look like if changes are made. Currently, Louisiana does not hold party primaries. Instead, the state holds open primaries in which every candidate runs regardless of party. If one candidate gets more than half of the votes in the first round, they win outright. If not, the top two move on to a runoff. There was a time when Louisiana would hold congressional primaries in October and the runoff if needed on the national Election Day in November. The problem was that incumbents usually won outright in the first round, and the U.S. Supreme...

    HOUSTON (AP) — The latest U.S. Women’s Open on the calendar will last one more day because of relentless rain that drenched Champions Golf Club and forced the USGA to suspend the final round until Monday. Hinako Shibuno of Japan, who had a one-shot lead as she goes for a second major, never teed off. The USGA moved up tee times as early as possible Sunday because of the forecast, and the final round was just over an hour old when thunderstorms in the area caused play to be stopped. It never resumed, with about three-quarters of an inch of rain falling before there was no point in trying to restart. The turf in the December climate doesn’t drain as quickly.

    KALAMAZOO, Michigan (AP) — The first shipments of a COVID-19 vaccine for widespread use in the United States headed Sunday from Michigan to distribution centers across the country, with the first shots expected to be given in the coming week to health care workers and at nursing homes. Shipments of the Pfizer vaccine will set in motion the biggest vaccination effort in American history at a critical juncture of the pandemic that has killed 1.6 million and sickened 71 million worldwide. Initially, about 3 million doses were expected to be sent out, and the priority is health care workers and nursing home residents as infections, hospitalizations and deaths soar in the U.S. With numbers likely to get worse over the holidays, the vaccine is offering a bright spot in the fight against the pandemic that’s killed nearly 300,000 Americans. Federal officials say the first shipments of Pfizer’s vaccine will be...

    The first significant snowstorm of the season is on track for midweek, but we'll get a small preview of what may be ahead a couple of days beforehand. But first, the weekend will wrap up with unseasonably mild temperatures Sunday, Dec. 13 with the high temperature climbing to the mid 50s on a partly sunny day. Clouds will increase overnight with the low temperature around the freezing mark.

    IF and when a second round of stimulus checks is approved, when Americans will get the money depends on the payment group they fall under. That means that when Americans will receive the next $1,200—or whatever the amount may be—depends less on their individual qualifications, according to CNET. 2Congress has not yet approved the second round of stimulus checks The first group of people who will receive the funds are those who have given their direct deposit information to the Internal Revenue Service. This group generally got the first round of stimulus checks first, because direct deposit is the quickest and most efficient way for the IRS to process payments.  After them, the group of people who will likely get their second stimulus checks the fastest are Social Security beneficiaries.  Social Security beneficiaries who provided their direct deposit information to the IRS got the first round of stimulus money the...

    Charles Oliveira had Tony Ferguson’s arm locked and he somehow didn’t tap Tony Ferguson seems to be the kind of guy who would rather die in the Octagon than surrender, and that was on display as he took a loss in upset fashion to Charles Olivera in the UFC 256 co-main event. This was a bout in which Oliveira dominated from bell to bell, getting a slight edge on Ferguson in striking to start things off before taking the fight to the ground and dominating the entire second half of the first round in top position.
