    Some GameStop traders think the so-called meme stock will build on this week’s surprise surge — by skyrocketing to $800 in a single day. The most popular GameStop options contract on Thursday was a bet that the shares would climb to that price on Friday, Bloomberg data show. More than 52,000 of those contracts were traded as the video-game retailer’s stock climbed more than 141 percent over two days to close at $108.73 on Thursday, according to the data. The contracts are known as call options, which give buyers the right to purchase a stock at a certain price before a specific date without requiring them to ultimately take the shares. The odds of GameStop reaching the $800 mark on Friday are pretty slim even though Reddit’s army of retail traders has started pumping up the stock again. The Texas-based company’s shares were trading at $122.05 as of 8:05 a.m.,...

After news of the couple's relationship -- and reported engagement! -- shocked fans earlier this month, social media users have come to suspect Foster, 58, of connecting the lovebirds.  Speculation began when Rodgers, the 37-year-old quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, was named the 2020 AP Most Valuable Player. During his acceptance speech, Rodgers thanked Foster as one of the "great group of people" who support him "off the field." He did not, however, confirm if the Foster he thanked was the actress herself...

Here’s what some experts think © Tiziana Fabi/AFP/Getty Images MARKET EXTRA Load Error A pullback for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 index on Tuesday halted the longest win streak for stocks in months, but a major concern for investors remains: Is there a major correction looming ahead? Even some bullish investors have called for a retrenchment in stocks as a sort of catharsis for the next leg higher and an unwind of some of the frenzied, retail-inspired betting that has repeatedly sent stocks to fresh records amid the COVID-19 recovery. A brief pullback that began in late January, tied to the trading fervor around GameStop Corp. ...

    (CNN Business)Sometime Monday, some of the remaining dead-enders convinced that President Trump will remain in office for at least the next four years got a sign. A Telegram account falsely purporting to be run by Gen. John Hyten, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was telling them that the moment they'd been waiting for, the moment Trump would finally act and use the military to crush his enemies, was coming."Nothing can stop this," the account said in a message that had been seen by at least 185,000 people as of Tuesday morning. "They can no longer hide in the shadows," it added half an hour later. Then, 20 minutes later: "Last hours." It continued on like this. Around 10 a.m. ET it posted an ominous picture of soldiers in uniform behind a fence in Washington DC with the caption "Stay in your homes."By Tuesday afternoon, the account...
    For many Americans, the GOP lawmakers who objected to counting the Electoral College votes in Congress share some of the blame for the violence that occurred at the nation's Capitol. Nearly half — 47% — think some of these Republicans encouraged the violence that occurred. Most of those who hold these lawmakers responsible think there should be political consequences for their actions. Sixty-five percent of Americans who think they encouraged violence at the Capitol think they should be removed from office, and another 22% think they should be punished in some other way. Just 13% think there should be no action taken against them. But most of the rank-and-file members of the Republican Party see things differently, which highlights some of the political calculations some of these GOP lawmakers may be negotiating as they respond to recent events. Just one in five Republicans think these lawmakers were in part responsible...
    Gordon Ramsay says only thin gravy is good. FOX Image Collection via Getty Images Chef Gordon Ramsay said "there's no delicious thick gravy" after receiving criticism on social media for his ultra-thin gravy, adding that "proper" gravy is always thin.  Michelin-starred chef Brad Carter also backed Ramsay, saying that sometimes the best gravy is the thinnest gravy. But not all chefs agree. The way gravy is made varies not only from the US to the UK, but also regionally across America. Food & Wine senior editor Kat Kinsman, who wrote a story for Extra Crispy identifying a dozen different types of gravy in the US alone, told Insider that both thick and thin gravy can be delicious. Good gravy is really about the flavor, not the texture, according to some chefs. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. When fans criticized his juice-like gravy, Gordon Ramsay had just...
    VIDEO3:4003:40Republicans believe Trump is sabotaging the Georgia Senate runoff race: Axios co-founderSquawk Box Axios co-founder Mike Allen told CNBC on Thursday that some Republicans believe President Donald Trump is hurting the party's chances in next week's Georgia Senate runoffs. "There's a big strain of thought among Republicans that President Trump is sabotaging this race. He's done so much to be unhelpful to those candidates," Allen said on "Squawk Box," referring to GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. "I talk to Republicans and they look at what's happening, and they say, 'You know, he must be thinking, 'I want to send a message, If I'm not on the ballot,  Republicans are in trouble,'" added Allen, a longtime political reporter in Washington. Allen's comments come ahead of Tuesday's crucial runoff elections, which will determine the balance of power in the U.S. Senate. Loeffler is running against Democrat Raphael Warnock, while Perdue's opponent is...
    MUMS are adding Nesquik powder to their Baileys instead of forking out for pricey flavoured versions - but not everyone’s convinced. Taking to the Facebook group Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK, one mum shared her secret concoction. 2A mum shared her recipe for adding Nesquik to Irish creamCredit: facebook/Selina Arrowsmith Posting a snap of an own-brand version of the drink and the chocolate milkshake powder, she wrote: “Don’t know if it’s weird or genius ???? “I love Baileys but the flavoured ones are so expensive compared to the normal unless on offer so I just put a couple spoons of Nesquik in mine and bang chocolate Baileys ????????” The mum uses Aldi’s £3 version Irish cream drink, Ballycastle, with a chocolate Nesquik which comes in at £3.35.

    For all of the front-line healthcare workers who eagerly rolled up their sleeves for the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday, there’s something a little disingenuous — or maybe Pollyannaish — about the chorus of insistence that we’re at “the beginning of the end” of the pandemic. Gov. Gavin Newsom tweeted as much on Sunday, as trucks and planes carrying millions of doses packed in dry ice fanned out across the country. His words echoed those of Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and of Army Gen. Gustave Perna, who compared the Trump administration’s massive vaccine distribution operation to D-day, as if it was the beginning of the end of World War II. The truth is, the hardest work is just beginning — and, contrary to what seems to be popular belief, there’s no real end in sight. Few people understand this more than Dr. Roberto Vargas, an assistant dean of...

    President Trump said Saturday he was "surprised there were so many" Republicans in the House and Senate who would acknowledge Democrat Joe Biden as president-elect.  The president was reacting to a report from the Washington Post, in which the newspaper claimed only 25 out of 249 congressional Republicans said Biden won the election. Fast Facts The Washington Post said in a survey it found only 25 out of 249 congressional Republicans believed Biden had won the election.

    Getty/Marcos Brindicci Argentinian soccer icon Diego Maradona died on November 25 after experiencing a heart attack.  In the days since, the court of public opinion has already thrown blame at his personal doctor, Leopoldo Luque, who had his house raided by police on Sunday. An Argentine media site falsely reported that Luque has been charged with "wrongful death," tied to Maradona, while other Spanish-language sites have reported Luque is accused of "culpable homicide" and "negligence and manslaughter." Luque has denied all wrongdoing in Maradona's death and said he believes he is being made a "scapegoat" in Maradona's death.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Legal and health experts have stated that minorities must have equal access to a coronavirus vaccine when it becomes available to the public, but disagreed on how explicit the government’s plan should be in prioritizing such communities. “Inequities in health have always existed, but at this moment there is an awakening to the power of racism, poverty, and bias in amplifying the health and economic pain and hardship imposed by this pandemic,” said Helene Gayle, president and CEO of the Chicago Community Trust. A survey conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation in October found that half of black adults do not plan on getting the vaccine while legal experts said courts would strike down any law that put anyone at the front of the line based solely on race. Some legal and health experts recommended minorities get prioritized access to a potential coronavirus vaccine as the federal government...
    MSNBC analyst Steve Kornacki nearly shorted out live on the air as he tried to think of some other way to describe a large tranche of mail-in votes from Nevada, before finally surrendering to the allure of the “very big dump.” Kornacki and his trademark “Big Board” have become superstars in the very long month that Election Day has become, and the breakneck pace of gaming out vote counts from hotly-contested battleground states has taken an admirably small toll on both Kornacki and his CNN counterpart John King. But on Thursday afternoon, Kornacki ran into a glitch that could’ve defeated even the freshest cable newser, as he reported on former Vice President Joe Biden’s glacially-expanding lead over President Donald Trump in Nevada. Discussing the tens of thousands of mail-in ballots still outstanding in Clark County, Kornacki told viewers that County officials were “looking forward to this noon eastern time...

    Not giving a damn about the lives of individual Americans is Donald Trump’s real superpower. Being a sociopath who lacks all empathy and is incapable of seeing anything beyond how events affect his own bank account and TV Q may not seem like it would be a political advantage, but it allows Trump to get past all those barriers that hold many public figures back. Barriers like just the slightest concern for decency, integrity, and the usual fear of being seen as an uncaring jackass. Thanks to his power, Trump can go anywhere, say anything, and leave behind a mess of damage that’s completely not his concern. Like the trail of COVID-19 cases that is following Trump rallies around the nation.  “[Trump] has repeatedly held these gatherings not only in defiance of public health guidelines, but seemingly to spite them: downplaying the threat of the virus, eschewing basic public health principles such as...
    Disney shared this mock-up image to show what the entrance will look like. Disney Parks Walt Disney World announced on Monday that it's changing iconic entrances that feature flag-embellished arches and cutouts of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. The new design is being made to complement other renovations, according to the Disney Parks Blog, and will no longer feature Cinderella Castle or the phrase "Where Dreams Come True." Some fans, however, argue that the new design lacks magic, and shouldn't be a priority as Disney employees are being laid off. Similar criticism was aimed at Disney World after it unveiled the new pink-and-gold exterior of Cinderella Castle over the summer. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Suburban restaurant owners and their employees were grappling with devastating news Tuesday night – a surge in coronavirus cases in DuPage, Kane, Will, and Kankakee counties has forced new rules. Indoor dining in those counties will no longer be allowed. With the possibility of an indoor dining shutdown also again looming in the city of Chicago, CBS 2’s Tara Molina has learned some restaurant workers feel they’re better off just staying on unemployment rather than going back to work. Once the temperature dropped and the outdoor tables stopped filling up, Tavern on Rush, 1031 N. Rush St., took a 60 percent hit. The restaurant group behind Tavern on Rush worries those hits will keep coming. “We can’t take another hit,” said Steve Hartenstein, chief financial officer and chief operating officer at Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants. “We’re done.” Also From CBS Chicago: Jewel Employee With Special Needs...
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- We're all doing our best to navigate the challenges of COVID-19.

    Have you ever been faced with the decision about whether or not to do an everyday task because you're scared about how difficult or embarrassing it might be? You're not alone. This week a Reddit user started a discussion about the most ominous-sounding jobs that people tend to avoid in an attempt to break down the myths surrounding them and offer encouragement to others. Issues such as going travelling by yourself, sitting down to write your will and even booking an appointment for a prostate examination were all thrown into the mix.  The sub-Reddit, entitled 'What is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be?', has already seen almost 16,000 people from around the world interact with it. Having a prostate exam is one task that many men struggle to build the courage to do. However, one person described how simple the procedure is and how...
    New York Yankees: Who is your favorite in the postseason? Here’s what some Yankee fans think By: William Parlee October 14, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees are coming off a disappointing season and an even more disappointing postseason.  They lost both the division and the ALCS to the Tampa Bay Rays. The only bright spot in the postseason was that the Yankees blew away the Cleveland Indians in the ALDS by sweeping them. The ALCS ended going all five games with Mike Brosseau getting the deciding run off of New York Yankee closer Aroldis Chapman, who had nearly hit Brosseau in the head in an earlier game. The two teams, Yankees and Rays, have become rivals in recent years; the two teams really don’t like each other after numerous run ins and bench-clearing incidents in past years, highlighted this year with the Chapman...

    Fans of The Masked Singer think they may have figured out one of the major early spoilers of the new season — the identity of the Sun. Though not everyone has settled on the same answer. Shortly after the debut of the singer dressed like the yellow dwarf star at the center of our solar system, many took to the internet to claim that it was none other than singer Christina Aguilera. The singer’s name reached the top of Twitter’s trending topics afterward, with many sharing their ideas of why the Sun character must be her. Many shared a video of the performance that panelist Robin Thicke shared on Twitter, speculating that the person had a stage presence much like the “Genie In A Bottle” singer. The episode showed the singer wearing a costume that had gold from head to toe, including a golden sun-shaped masked. The show revealed that...

    DJ Qeys (L) speaks with CL's Ray Roa at a quarantine, no-audience version of Rock the Park Tampa on July 2, 2020.Ashley Dieudonne It’s only been four months since a local reader responded to the creation of the Creative Loafing Tampa Bay Press Club with this piece of advice: “ …it might help not to alienate half of your potential readership at the hands of writers/journalists who push their own political agenda on your platform. CL has been staunchly liberal and now may be the best time to fix that.” It doesn’t happen a lot, but a short Twitter essay spilled out of me.

    From H-bomb father Edward Teller to Microsoft founder Bill Gates, for decades inventors have been churning out wild ideas to stop hurricanes before they hit land. Teller once suggested detonating a nuclear weapon to blow the storm off course, while Gates patented a series of pumps to push warm water down and cooler water up; neither plan got much traction. The latest scheme—this one from Norway—proposes stretching a submerged “bubble net” across the path of an oncoming storm. To OceanTherm CEO Olav Hollingsæter, a hurricane’s swath of destruction could be slowed or even avoided using a technique that has kept Norwegian fjords ice-free since the late 1960s. Imagine a long, thin, flexible pipe stretched between two ships. The pipe is moored a few hundred feet below the surface, like an upside-down shower curtain. A massive stream of bubbles escapes from the pipe, forming a frothy white current as it rises...
    The NBA’s Bucks opted to sit out Game 5 of their first-round playoff series with the Magic on Wednesday following the shooting of another unarmed black man by police in Wisconsin.

    PARENTS are gearing up to get their kids back to school in a couple of weeks after summer holidays and months of homeschooling. But nearly half of parents think their kid’s education will always be behind following the disruption caused by Covid-19.

    Just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, yet a world away from San Francisco, in an unincorporated and oft-overlooked area known as Marin City, sea level rise is rarely the first worry that comes to mind. Traditional flood maps for this predominantly Black and working-class community suggest that the area is safe from rising water until 3 feet or more. But sea level rise is a lot more complicated than just waves breaking over seawalls and beaches disappearing. Imagine the groundwater beneath your feet. As the ocean moves inland, it will push all this trapped water upward until it breaks the surface. Basements will heave, brackish water could corrode sewer pipes, toxic contaminants buried in the soil could bubble up and spread. In many areas along San Francisco Bay, this sea beneath us is already leaking out of the ground, said Kristina Hill, whose research at UC Berkeley focuses on...

    Congressman James Clyburn pushed back in a recent interview against Trump administration claims about mail-in voting and remarked, “I have been saying now for about three years that this president doesn’t plan to have an election. He’s not planning to give up the office. He thinks that the American people will be duped by him, like the people of Germany was duped by Adolf Hitler.” Clyburn appeared on CNN Sunday and Dana bash brought up those comments to ask, “Do you really think Donald Trump is comparable to Adolf Hitler?” Clyburn said he feels “very strongly” that Trump “has taken on strongarm tactics” and that “he is Mussolini, Putin, and Hitler.” He went on to say that he believes Trump doesn’t want to “peacefully transfer power”: “I don’t think he plans to leave the White House. He doesn’t plan to have fair and unfettered elections. I believe that he...
    (CBSLA)- Major League Baseball woke up Monday to concerning news coming out of Philadelphia. After reports Sunday indicated that four Marlins players had tested positive for COVID-19, new reporting indicated that more players and a couple of staff members had tested positive by Monday morning. With that news, the league decided to postpone games in Miami and Philadelphia scheduled for Monday night. However, the rest of the league is set to keep on playing. Los Angeles Dodgers President and CEO Stan Kasten joined MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM Monday and said that the league was expecting something along these lines to happen at some point. “I don’t believe there’s going to be any panic just yet. I think we understood there might be occasions like this which is why we had our player pool as big as it is,” said Kasten. “I don’t really know what’s going to happen...
    Everyone knows Covington Catholic High School’s Nick Sandmann sought $250 million in a lawsuit against major news organizations and individuals within their realms.  Word that he settled with CNN in January and with the Washington Post last week has raised questions about how much he actually won.  Lawyers who have observed the litigation have almost universally agreed it was not anywhere close to $250 million.  (The official settlement amount remains confidential.) “If you believe this kid got anything more than a nuisance fee settlement, you’re dreaming,” said national security law attorney Bradley P.

    In an update on the status of the next round of stimulus funding for the COVID-19 crisis, a Republican senator confessed the sinister reason his party isn’t a rush to get anything done. Speaking to the Washington Post, Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) confessed it’s because they don’t want to spend the money. “There are some over here that think we benefit from doing nothing because people don’t want to spend any more money,” he said. “I’d say it’s gonna be tough.” It was assumed that Republicans would be more willing to deal because it is an election year, and many are desperate to keep their seats in November. Yet, the unprecedented pandemic and national emergency didn’t seem as urgent as one might assume. In a scathing piece, the Post editorial board blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for dragging his feet and not jumping to help a country in crisis. Democrats, by contrast,...

She said her children struggled too, especially 9-year-old Mika. “He shut down,” she said. “He said, ‘Mom, I think I don’t know anything.’ So his confidence...

    A Steller sea lion eats fish during a press visit at the Marineland Zoo in Antibes before its reopening, six months after the flooding that affected the French Riviera. Reuters/Eric Gaillard Since March, Vancouver Island resident Deborah Short has found five sea lion carcasses without their heads. While no one knows for sure, Seaview Marine Sciences marine mammal zoologist Anna Hall said the decapitations were probably done by humans. "Unless an unusual species of shark has entered the strait, which we don't know about, that has a preference for taking the heads... something unusual is going on in the Strait of Georgia," she told Vice. President of Pacific Balance Marine Management Tom Sewid, who is a member of the Kwakwaka'wakw Nation, told The Star that over the last few months he had received at least 120 emails asking about buying sea lion skulls. He said a male skull...

Since the coronavirus pandemic, Kelly has worked at home, remotely filming her segment of the daytime talk show. Her makeup was...

Those commenters are theorizing that Kanye would be more likely to draw votes from the Democrat in the race, Biden, although, of course, who knows if West is even serious?

    Republicans have expressed skepticism over recent presidential polls that show Democratic nominee Joe Biden expanding his lead over President Donald Trump, The Hill reported Tuesday. In nationwide polls, the president trails Biden by an average of almost 10 points, with recent polls showing spreads as high as 14%. Trump has also fallen behind in critical swing states including Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, which he won by a combined total of only 77,000 votes in 2016. (RELATED: Biden Up 16% In Michigan Following Nationwide Protests) Some Republican Senators have been quick to invoke similar polls from 2016, which gave Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton a consistent leads over Trump. “I think they’re in all likelihood underreporting support for the president. That’s what we saw in 2016,” Texas Sen. John Cornyn said. Polls in the Texas show Trump and Biden in a dead heat, and Cornyn is running for reelection as well. Iowa...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Graduates of Roosevelt University are giving the school a failing grade for Friday’s virtual graduation ceremony, and the school is now apologizing. Expectations for graduation “weren’t crazy high,” according to graduate Jaida Olvera, but the lowered bar wasn’t even met — not by a long shot. “I just burst into tears, and me and my sister just cried together because it was overwhelming and upsetting,” she said. “And now it’s just kind of anger.” When Olvera dressed in her cap and gown with family gather around the laptop there was no live event to tune into. “It was a series of 18 videos that were prerecorded,” she said. Some videos had music, some had messages, some were blurry and some were off microphone. But no one had a list of names — no photos, no personal touch. There was no singular standout moment to signify an end of...

    Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., told "The Daily Briefing" Tuesday that both parties should find a middle ground on the issue of law enforcement reform after Senate Democrats described a Republican proposal as a "non-starter." "I think that's terrible because it's got so much in it that's also in the Democratic legislation," Braun told host Dana Perino. "And so I think this is a moment in time that if they do that, it's simply to keep ... us from moving some basic reform in place." ‘JUSTICE ACT’: WHAT’S IN THE SENATE REPUBLICAN POLICE REFORM BILL The JUSTICE Act, authored by Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., is expected to fall short of the 60 votes needed to begin debate on the legislation when the Senate takes a test vote Wednesday morning.

    Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb took a moment on Face the Nation Sunday morning to emphasize that wearing masks to help reduce the spread of coronavirus should not be controversial, let alone political. Margaret Brennan asked if states not making masks mandatory are making a mistake. “Well, I think they’re going to have to. I think it’s a mistake that they’re not doing it now. They’re losing precious time. I think they’re going to have to,” Gottlieb responded. He went on to dismiss the idea this should be at all political: “The masking has become controversial. It shouldn’t be. It’s a simple intervention. It’s a collective action we can all take to help protect our fellow citizens, but also protect ourselves and try to reopen the economy safely. I think some people see it as a sort of infringement on their liberty or as a way to cast some...
    Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., might be a problematic and lackluster running mate for former Vice President Joe Biden given her record as a prosecutor, GOP pollster Lee Carter said Saturday. Fox News host Neil Cavuto had asked Carter whether Biden should choose Harris after Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., removed herself from consideration so that she could make room for a female running mate of color. "I think it would be playing it safe to do something like that, and I think looking at somebody like Susan Rice, who has been in the public eye, Kamala Harris has been in the public eye would be sort of what you would expect from Joe Biden, who talks about wanting somebody who's experienced he likes ... that would be playing it what I would call a little bit too comfortable though in this moment because I think Kamala Harris has some baggage associated with her, particularly as it pertains to Black Lives Matter. She was a prosecutor, she was part...

    Philip Rivers may have ended his 16-year stint with the Chargers on a sour note, but he doesn’t think he’s washed up quite yet. “At times, I think what may have aggravated me a little bit last year was [the notion] that I just couldn’t play anymore,” the 38-year-old Colts quarterback said on Wednesday, via ESPN. “When you heard that, it bothered me, because I wanted to go, ‘Shoot, let’s turn on the tape and watch all the good things.’” Indianapolis head coach Frank Reich sifted through days of tape for “all the guys” available – including highly sought after free agent and six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady – before signing Rivers to a one-year, $25 million deal in March. Reich described Brady as “incredible,” but called the chance to reunite with Rivers as a “crazy, unique opportunity.” Rivers overlapped with multiple members of the current Colts’ coaching staff...

    Washington (CNN)National security adviser Robert O'Brien on Sunday denied in an interview on CNN that systemic racism exists across the nation's police forces, arguing instead that "a few bad apples" give the impression of racism among law enforcement officers. "No, I don't think there's systemic racism. I think 99.9% of our law enforcement officers are great Americans. Many of them are African American, Hispanic, Asian, they're working the toughest neighborhood, they've got the hardest jobs to do in this country and I think they're amazing, great Americans," O'Brien told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" when asked if systemic racism was a problem for police agencies.O'Brien added that there are "some bad apples in there. There are some bad cops who are racist. There are cops that maybe don't have the right straining." "There is no doubt that there are some racist police, I think they're the minority,...
