    By Amy Tennery and Rory Carroll TAMPA, Fla./LONG BEACH, Calif (Reuters) - Fans hoping to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday will face a much different reality this year, with the novel coronavirus restricting the celebration around one of America's unofficial holidays. Those who choose to gather at Super Bowl parties big and small in Tampa and across the country face dire warnings from public health officials to abide by basic health and safety protocols, amid the COVID-19 pandemic that has claimed more than 450,000 lives in the United States. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance said those who attend large watch parties should avoid "chanting or cheering" and avoid going to the restroom during "high-traffic times." For local businesses in Tampa, Florida, meeting the safety standards of the COVID-19 era may mean extra work without the usual super-sized plunder they might have enjoyed with America's biggest...
    BLOOMFIELD, New Jersey -- In a year with so much heartbreak, so many are looking for a bright spot. And who better to offer a quick burst of cheer than cheerleaders?That's the simple mission for a group of teenagers from New Jersey.Friends Mackenzie Jennings, Sofia Cordaro, Alessia Velazquez and Ava Cassilli started Project CheerUP! at the beginning of the pandemic, with the goal of making videos with simple messages to boost morale.What started in Bloomfield has expanded, and now, the guaranteed mood boosters are being sent around the country."We were all on lockdown and it canceled our cheer team, but we decided to keep cheering from our homes and put together small videos that we could send to family and friends to cheer them up," Jennings said.The so-called "Cheergrams" caught on, with requests for birthdays, messages to health care workers, get well notes for people who were sick, or for...
    No cheering for athletes, no visiting bars and restaurants in Tokyo, less intimacy in the Olympic village. Take enough masks for the entire stay but avoid wearing one with an unofficial sponsor logo. Do not use public transport without permission. Ground rules for thousands of Olympic and Paralympic officials to ensure safe travel, daily life and competitions at the Tokyo Games during the coronavirus pandemic were published Wednesday. Those who break the rules with “repeated or serious failures to comply” risk being removed from the Olympic and sent home. The International Olympic Committee, International Paralympic Committee and local organizers in Japan made the guide the first of their so-called Playbooks to educate all visitors. The Olympics open on July 23 and the Paralympics a month later. The details pointed clearly to the limits that athletes, games volunteers, media and fans — if any are allowed in the venues — will also face in...
    The Centers for Disease Control has issued Super Bowl party guidelines that include "avoid cheering" and limit the amount of alcohol consumed. This years Super Bowl will be played early Sunday evening between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs in Tampa, Florida. In offering recommendations for large gatherings and small gatherings, the CDC basically stressed what it has from early on in the pandemic – wear masks, wash your hands often, and allow for social distancing.  Large gatherings described on the CDC website included the crowd at the game or groups as a "watch party." The NFL is allowing 22,000 fans to attend the Super Bowl at Raymond James Stadium, per The Hill. The CDC suggested wearing masks at all times and limiting the amount of alcohol, since consumption might make a person less likely to follow COVID-19 safety measures. "Avoid chanting or cheering. Stomp, clap, or bring hand-held noisemakers instead," the CDC...
    The Centers for Disease Control has posted its latest guidelines to regulate your Super Bowl party and cheering and alcohol are on the out list. The guidelines for “large gatherings” sets out to offer the “safest way to celebrate events is at home with the people who live with you.” Among the recommendations, the CDC wants you to keep your mouth closed during the big game. “Avoid chanting or cheering. Stomp, clap, or bring hand-held noisemakers instead,” the CDC says. The agency adds that outside parties are better, but even in cold weather medical masks should be worn under scarves or ski masks. And, regardless, the CDC warns folks not to invite people with whom they do not live to their party. Among its many suggestions, the CDC says to have less alcohol at your party. The agency also says to use “touchless payment methods” if you want to help...
    HOMESTEAD, FLORIDA - Undocumented immigrants cheered President Joe Biden's plan to provide a path to U.S. citizenship for about 11 million people without legal status, mixing hope with guarded optimism Wednesday amid a seismic shift in how the U.S. government views and treats them. The newly inaugurated president moved to reverse four years of harsh restrictions and mass deportation with a plan for sweeping legislation on citizenship. Biden also issued executive orders reversing some of former President Donald Trump's immigration policies, such as halting work on a U.S.-Mexico border wall and lifting a travel ban on people from several predominantly Muslim countries. He also ordered his Cabinet to work to keep deportation protections for hundreds of thousands of people brought to the U.S. as children. "This sets a new narrative, moving us away from being seen as criminals and people on the public charge to opening the door for us...
    An Anitfa-aligned group's tweet that seems to celebrate arson doesn't violate the site's policies because the post's language is too vague, according to Twitter. Fox News noted Monday that Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front tweeted "this is so cool" in response to an article about officials investigating alleged arson targeting a law enforcement officer. Oregon Public Broadcasting reported on Friday that federal law enforcement agencies were investigating the issue, although the Washington County Sheriff's Office already claimed the incident was arson. A law enforcement official reportedly said that there was a "concern in this case that the officer was surveilled and followed home." Twitter's Elizabeth Busby told Fox News on Tuesday that the tweet didn't violate its rules and linked to its policy on safety and other issues. ANTIFA-ALIGNED GROUP CHEERS ALLEGED ARSON AT POLICE OFFICER'S HOME, TWITTER ALLOWS TWEET The social media company's prohibition against glorifying violence warns that doing so could "inspire others to take part...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Fly to the polls — that’s the message some Philadelphia Eagles players have for voters today. It is the player’s turn to cheer on their fans as several Eagles did today as people waited in line to cast their ballots. It’s the only day this year you can replace E-A-G-L-E-S with something else. “I want everyone cheering vote, vote, vote,” Al Thomas said. Rodney McLeod and many of his Eagles teammates loaded onto a double-decker bus on Election Day, bound for several polling places. Rodney McLeod and teammates are canvassing across Philly today to encourage people to vote and providing coffee, snacks, tshirts and other Eagles apparel to voters in line @CBSPhilly pic.twitter.com/dhi75bnjv1 — Dan Koob (@DanKoob) November 3, 2020 “The climate our country is in and just the importance of voting, man.

    DONALD Trump showed off his awkward dad dance moves as he boogied down to YMCA at the end of a rally last night.

    Ron Adar/Zuma For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.President Donald Trump kicked off his Sunday by tweeting out a call for Joe Biden to take a drug test before their debate next week, adding that he’d take one too. But that wasn’t his dumbest tweet of the morning. Trump also celebrated the prospect that the Supreme Court will throw out the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare. “Would be a big WIN For the USA!” he tweeted. Obamacare will be replaced with a MUCH better, and FAR cheaper, alternative if it is terminated in the Supreme Court. Would be a big WIN for the USA! — Donald J.

    A 60-year-old retired schoolteacher showed up to Kenosha's Civic Center Park on Thursday to serve as a one woman cheering squad for Joe Biden as he arrived in town - two days after President Trump's visit drew hundreds of supporters and protesters to the same downtown park.  'Maybe I'm in the wrong spot, I don't know,' Michelle Stauder told DailyMail.com just before a few Biden supporters walked over to join her. 'I hope to get it started.'  She waved a Biden-Harris sign and sported a red, white and blue cowboy hat, blue hair, flags and Joe buttons she crafted for the occasion, saying: 'I made my signs and buttons, I'm really excited.'   The former educator stood by herself just down the street from where 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, armed with a semi-automatic rifle, shot and killed two protesters and injured a third during a period of civil unrest after Jacob Blake was shot...
    Dolphins are a common sight off Orange County’s coast where thousands of the majestic creatures live just offshore. While it’s common to see them frolicking out in the open ocean or even up closer near surfers waiting for waves on their surfboards, some beachgoers last week got a special treat when a pod made its way into shallow waters off Laguna Beach – so close, a kid on a bodyboard was swimming within arm’s reach. “I’ve lived in Laguna Beach 20 years, I’ve never seen them come that close,” said Tamara Dowell, a real estate agent who shared the video taken by her client last week. “We are so blessed to live here.” Lisa Jaffe, vacationing from Arizona, was on the beach near Diver’s Cove Wednesday, July 29, when she heard commotion on the sand. Her husband William was out in the water with their 5-year-old. “We just heard everyone...
    Thursday on MSNBC, Steve Schmidt, John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign manager, described President Donald Trump’s supporters as “a cult of personality” that mindlessly cheer the president talking about drinking water. Host Brian Williams said, “I caught an article yesterday, the gist of which is that American passports are useless right now. Let’s ignore for the moment that the pandemic has made travel unreachable, impossible, and unpalatable for most people. If you wanted to, if you had the means or perhaps the urgency, a mission to travel the world, we are allowed as Americans into Turkey, Tanzania and Mexico. Europe is cut off for us. We can’t drive north into the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. We have become pariahs because of our spike.” Schmidt said, “All of those countries share something in common, the ones that want to keep Americans out. They’re governed by responsible leaders by and large. You can’t allow Americans into the...
    Michael Dell speaking at the 2019 WEF in Davos, Switzerland on Jan. 23rd, 2019.Adam Galica | CNBC Dell and VMware have never been a perfect match. Now, some of Dell's largest shareholders are hoping they split apart. The two tech companies are, once again, working with financial advisers to determine the future of their unusual entanglement. Dell, which owns 81% of VMware, plans to explore a variety of strategic options, including a tax-free spinoff of those shares to Dell shareholders in late 2021, according to people familiar with the matter. Dell prefers that route to selling its stake so that it can avoid a multibillion-dollar tax hit, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. Dell shares, which have badly lagged behind the broader market, jumped more than 8% on Wednesday after the Wall Street Journal first reported on the renewed discussions. VMware climbed 2.4%. The...
    Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder Robert Johnson ridiculed the notion Wednesday that black people “are sitting around cheering” every time a Confederate statue is toppled. Johnson called those pulling down the statues “borderline anarchists” who are doing the black community no favors, in an interview with Fox News. The first black billionaire said vandals toppling statues “have the mistaken assumption that black people are sitting around cheering for them saying ‘Oh, my God, look at these white people. They’re doing something so important to us. They’re taking down the statue of a Civil War general who fought for the South,’” Johnson said. (RELATED: Victor Davis Hanson: Taking Down Statues Is About ‘Humiliation And Power’) “You know, black people, in my opinion, black people laugh at white people who do this the same way we laugh at white people who say we got to take off the TV shows.” Johnson emphasized that...
    (CNN)On Thursday, South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem announced that plans to maintain social distancing during President Donald Trump's planned visit to Mount Rushmore to celebrate the July 4 holiday had been scrapped."We've seen people coming into the state for many weeks now and we continue to see our infection rates decline," Noem told reporters. "We did have a plan of social distancing, we do not anticipate doing any social distancing activities during the celebration. What I'm going to ask people to do is if you're sick, stay home."Which means that there will be a crowd of 7,500 ticketed guests, and Noem said Thursday that people without tickets would be free to congregate outside the official monument grounds. Meaning that there are likely to be more than 7,500 people in attendance. Maybe a lot more.Which would seem to be in direct violation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's...
