However, Jill, 69, hasn't responded to those allegations, and maintained that she struck up a romance with the president after going through a difficult divorce. "It took me a long time, it took me at least a year to get on my feet again," Jill said of the divorce during the interview...
    First Lady Jill Biden says she felt like a 'failure' after her divorce from her first husband, admitting she thought there was something 'wrong with her' because she was unable to make the relationship work.  The 69-year-old sat down with popstar and daytime host Kelly Clarkson for her first solo TV interview as First Lady, during which she addressed the breakdown of her marriage to Bill Stevenson, which ended in 1975 after just five years.  But while the professor admitted that she placed the blame for the split on herself, she said that she didn't meet second husband Joe, 78, until after she the break-up - despite her ex-husband telling DailyMail.com that the couple had an affair, which ultimately destroyed his marriage.  Opening up: Jill Biden had admitted that she blamed herself for her divorce from her first husband while chatting to Kelly Clarkson in her first solo...
    A United Airlines aircraftNicolas Economou | NurPhoto | Getty Images A United Airlines Boeing 777-200 bound for Honolulu suffered an engine failure shortly after takeoff from Denver on Saturday, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA said they are investigating the incident. The Broomfield Police Department in Colorado...
    After Microsoft released its Windows 8 operating system, it skipped to 10 for the next one, but why did this happen? It might sound strange, but there are those who believe that the fact that Windows 9 does not exist at all has to do with a curse or a superstition that large technology companies have in the world, which would prevent them from not using 9 for fear of make it a huge failure. But let’s be honest, Microsoft’s big failure was Windows 8 and there was no need for a 9 involved.. So why is there no Windows 9? The answer has many layers and surely all the reasons we show below are real, but not necessarily official, because nothing has been said about it from Microsoft. For starters, let’s go back to the failure that was Windows 8 with its attempt to bring the touch world...

    GIVEN the season West Ham are having it seems strange to be moaning. Fifth in the league and enjoying our best start to a Premier League campaign since 2015-16 and the best start to a calendar year in our 125-year history. 5David Moyes' excellent work is threatened by West Ham's failure to sign a striker in JanuaryCredit: PA:Press Association 5Injury prone Michail Antonio is the only recognised striker at the clubCredit: Rex Features So you could forgive us West Ham fans for having hopes of seeing our beloved Hammers competing in Europe next season. It’s just a real shame the board don't seem to share our ambition. After Sebastien Haller was sold to Ajax for £20million on January 8, we assumed David Moyes would seek a replacement who better fits his style of play and long term plan. But as the month rumbled on, it became very clear we'd be...
    NJ Transit commuter rail trains had more total mechanical failures than other agencies nationwide, but the system ranks in the middle of the pack when evaluating the number of breakdowns based on passenger car miles. According to commuter rail data from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), NJ Transit saw 351 total mechanical failures in 2019 while operating more than 61.6 million passenger car miles. A passenger car mile measures the number of miles rail passenger cars travel while in revenue service, including deadhead miles. In NJ Transit’s case, that equates to a breakdown every 175,535 miles. Based on FTA data, the Connecticut Department of Transportation experienced 163 total mechanical failures while operating more than 1.7 million passenger car miles. That equates to a breakdown every 10,684 miles. “NJ TRANSIT considers Mean Distance Between Failure (MDBF) as a fairer and more standard measure of performance, which also...
    The CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, backed the blocking of the account in that social network of the president of the United States, Donald Trump, but said that it sets a “dangerous” precedent and represents a failure at the time of promoting a healthy conversation in the platform. Miamimundo / ENH “Having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications,” Dorsey said in a series of tweets. “While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I believe that a ban is our ultimate failure in promoting healthy conversation.” Trump has used social media as a megaphone during his presidency, but the platforms have limited his access since a violent mob of his supporters stormed the US Congress last week. The platforms say Trump could use his accounts to foment more unrest in the run-up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. Late last week, Twitter shut down Trump’s account, kicking him off...
    Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, has endorsed the blocking of the account to Donald Trump, president of the United States, but also ensures that it sets a “dangerous” precedent and that he considers it a failure of the company by not being able to ensure a healthy conversation between the users. “While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I believe that a ban is a our ultimate failure to promote healthy conversation. Having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications, “Dorsey explained through a Twitter message. The social network explained the reason why he expelled Trump: “There is a risk of further incitement to violence” by the president. “Set a dangerous precedent” The Twitter executive is sure of the decision to veto Trump, but it also has its buts: “Set a precedent that can be dangerous. Having to take these actions fragments the public conversation....
    The Knicks want RJ Barrett to blossom into a superstar, but they haven’t surrounded him with the talent required for him to thrive.  RJ Barrett’s efficient 26 point outburst was the silver lining to a dark Opening Night loss for the Knicks. Despite their young star’s outstanding performance, New York still wilted away in the second half against the Pacers en route to a 121-107 final score. So what can the Knicks do?The sooner the Knicks come to grips with the reality that they aren’t a playoff team this season the better. Instead, their focus should be on developing their young talent. Establishing an environment where Barrett can take meaningful steps forward this year should be the organization’s top priority. The challenge for New York is that they don’t have many quality players on the roster that can potentially fit well with Barrett. One obvious move Thibodeau should make immediately...
    The New York Times has admitted to 'an institutional failure' in the production of its podcast 'Caliphate' by giving 'too much credence' to the story of a man now revealed as a fantasist pretending to be a terrorist.  In a devastating internal review released on Friday, it was found that the paper had failed to corroborate the sensationalist claims made by Canadian Shehroze Chaudhry, 25, and that the podcast team was duped by his fake story of working as an ISIS executioner.  The review began after Chaudhry was arrested by Canadian authorities in September and charged with 'a hoax regarding terrorist activity' as he lies fell apart. Chaudhry's remarkable, yet untrue, story of being a fighter and executioner with the Islamic State in Syria had been the centerpiece of the award-winning 'Caliphate', for which reporter Rukmini Callimachi was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and won a Peabody Award. Yet, the Times has now found that...
    Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie has some tough decisions to make this offseason. Still being alive for the NFC East crown does not hide the fact the Philadelphia Eagles are an absolute mess in 2020. Fans around the country got to see that Monday night and fans in Philly may be wondering what changes will come this offseason. Some are calling for Doug Pederson to be fired. Others want Carson Wentz benched immediately, as his contract makes it impossible to simply cut him loose. FanSided’s NFL Insider Matt Lombardo has revealed it is likely GM Howie Roseman who gets the axe this offseason.Eagles need a change up topLombardo spoke to a former GM who believes Roseman is the one person in most danger of losing their job. “If anyone goes, it’s most likely Howie Roseman,” a former general manager tells FanSided. “The issue here is Jeffrey Lurie knows that if he...
    GARETH SOUTHGATE revealed the reason he turned down the England job at first was because of a fear of failure. And that it was watching WALES reach the semi-finals of Euro 2016 which made him change his mind. 3England manager Gareth Southgate turned down the job initially due to fear of failureCredit: PA:Press Association Former Three Lions defender Southgate, who famously missed a penalty in the last-four shootout against Germany at Euro 96, then replaced Roy Hodgson on an interim basis before making the move permanent - having previously turned it down. Asked if he initially rejected the England job because of a fear within him of failure, Southgate said: “Very much so. “Having experienced what I did in ‘96 that hurts and I think the brain works in a way that it doesn’t want to put you in those situations again. “But I actually sat and watched Wales when...
    An emotional Van Jones has said Democrats are 'hurt' today after the election failed to produce a landslide in favor of Joe Biden.  Polls had strongly suggested a Biden win but, as happened in 2016, Trump performed better than expected - with no candidate landing a killer blow. Speaking early on Wednesday, Jones said that while a 'political' victory is still possible for the Democrats, a 'moral' victory over Trump-ism has evaporated.   'We wanted to see a repudiation of [Donald Trump],' he told viewers on CNN. 'And the fact that it’s this close I think is... it hurts. It just hurts.' A lot of Democrats are hurting tonight. Moral victory and political victory are not the same. Political victory is possible. But we wanted to see a repudiation of this direction for the country, and that has not yet come. That hurts.Still - we need to #CountEveryVote. pic.twitter.com/VuRCihtjuy— Van Jones...
    (CNN)Until President Trump's coronavirus infection, the White House strategy for keeping him and others in the administration safe was one of testing only. The President was rarely seen engaging in two of the most effective and widely promoted public health measures, social distancing and wearing a mask, and many of those who surround him followed his lead.For example, during the recent presidential debate in Cleveland, Trump not only mocked his Democratic rival Joe Biden for wearing a mask, his wife and grown children removed their masks after they were seated in the auditorium, in violation of the events rules. No masks and no back up measures: How the White House became ripe for an outbreakTesting, however, was apparently a strategy Trump could get behind, and so he and his staff were tested often -- the President was said to be tested as often as once a day, possibly more,...
    THIS summer’s transfer window was one of the most extraordinary of recent times. For starters it was longer than it would normally be and ended up carrying over into the launch of a new season. 5Chelsea fans are excited at how far Kai Havertz can go at the clubCredit: Getty Images - Getty This was due to the global coronavirus pandemic. Not only did this play havoc with the season being postponed, it has also proved devastating to many football clubs struggling with finances as a result. This made it a different kind of window, with only the top teams being able to spend big. Whilst it was great for the likes of Chelsea in terms of player arrivals, it really did put a spanner in the works of plans to oust a number of deadwood players.

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Wednesday blamed President Trump for the struggles by schools across the country to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic, saying, "They are paying the price for his failures.” "If President Trump and his administration had done their jobs early on in this crisis, American schools would be open and they'd be open safely,” Biden said during an appearance in Delaware. “Instead, American families all across this county are paying the price for his failures and his administration's failures.” Biden added: “He's offering nothing but failure and delusions from the start to finish to American families and our children." The former vice president -- speaking on the eve of his trip to Kenosha, Wisconsin, a city ripped apart by unrest and violence over racial injustice following the police shooting a week and a half ago of a Black man -- said the mission of his visit is “to bring people together.”...
    Indiana student tests positive for Covid-19 on first day of school McDonalds CEO seems to hint at an upgraded chicken sandwich What MLB should have learned from Americas botched pandemic response, but didnt © Yahoo News Frankly I am not sure what about the past five months in America would make you think that simply asking people to stay safe is a sufficient pandemic management strategy. Especially if you’re also mandating that they go to work and travel around the country.  After outbreaks on two Major League Baseball teams, the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals, disrupted 20 percent of the league’s teams in the first week and a half of the 2020 season, commissioner Rob Manfred said that “the players need to be better.” He levied a public threat through the Players Association chief Tony Clark that the season itself was in jeopardy. He told...
    Bradley Cortright July 30, 2020 0 Comments Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is placing the blame for the worst economic decline in roughly 70 years squarely on President Donald Trump. On Thursday, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported that the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) shrank 9.5%, the largest decline since the government began publishing reports on the economic data, in the April-June quarter. After the report was published, Biden released a statement where he blamed the economic decline on Trump. “The last three months were the worst period for economic growth our nation has experienced in the 70 years since we started measuring it — a drop of nearly 33 percent,” Biden said in a tweet with a link to his statement.  “Let’s be clear: This is no act of God, it’s a failure of presidential leadership,” he added. The last three months were the worst period for...
    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Monday EU leaders were making progress towards an agreement on a plan to revive economies throttled by the COVID-19 pandemic, but warned discussions could still fall apart. "At times it didn't look good last night, but I feel that on the whole we are making progress," Rutte told reporters in Brussels. EU leaders were at an impasse on Monday after three days of haggling over the plan, with summit chairman Charles Michel describing the task as "mission impossible". (Reporting by Bart H.

    President Donald Trump will meet the campaign stands in New Hampshire next week, this time in the open air after the fiasco of the Tulsa meeting amid the Covid-19 epidemic. The “Make America Great Again” meeting will take place on July 11 in Portsmouth, his campaign announced on Sunday. “All participants will be given a mask which they will be strongly encouraged to wear,” she said. The Republican billionaire, who will run for a second four-year term on November 3, had made his comeback in the campaign on June 20 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. But the numerous rows of empty seats had not helped to give the image of a candidate who knew how to find a second wind. And the image of his return to the White House in the middle of the night, his air downcast, his tie defeated, had quickly become the symbol of a failed return....
    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks stated that while President Trump “has been a failure” at handling the coronavirus pandemic from the beginning, he isn’t completely to blame, because “It wasn’t Trump who went to the bars in Nevada and Arizona and Texas and California. That’s a country giving up. That’s a collective failure.” Brooks also stated that there have been repeated failures by institutions, such as the mistakes on testing made by the CDC and FDA. Brooks said, “Well, Trump has been a failure at it since day one. He’s denied it. He’s had crackpot theories about it. He’s offered no leadership at all. But I have to say, when you look at 57,000 new cases one day, and 55,000 the day before, that’s not only President Trump. It wasn’t Trump who went to the bars in Nevada and Arizona and Texas and California. That’s a country...
    SpaceX lost another Starship tank prototype during testing, but this time the explosion was intentional. The firm pushed the limits of the giant tank using super-chilled nitrogen to see how well it would hold up during an actual launch. During the cryogenic test, the massive structure beings to rupture, pops and collapses, disappearing into a giant cloud of nitrogen. The test is just one of many SpaceX has been conducting at its Texas site to ensure its Starship rocket will one-day take humans to Mars and the moon. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has had quite the journey with the massive Starship rocket – multiple prototypes have burst into flames during testing. Scroll down for video SpaceX pushed the limits of the giant tank using super-chilled nitrogen to see how well it would hold up during an actual launch.

    CDC Director and reliable Trump-fluffer Robert Redfield explains Trump's amazing medical knowledge. If there’s anything that Donald Trump does with aplomb, it’s tossing around blame. After making it clear once again that "I don't take responsibility at all" is his personal motto, Trump has been on a quest to find just the right scapegoat for his lack of planning, lack of execution, and lack of follow-through in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Trump has tried blaming the World Health Organization. He’s made repeated attempts to pin his own failings on China. He’s made multiple runs at finding a way to blame President Obama. Still, it’s hard to have enough scapegoats when Americans are still dying by the thousands. So Trump is dragging a fresh sacrifice toward the altar in the form of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Administration officials and Republicans in Congress are eager to get started with...
    Mixer, the soon-to-be-shuttered streaming platform from Microsoft, always had a tough road ahead of it. In a space already dominated by Twitch, and with YouTube using its unparalleled audience scale to carve out its own slice of the market, Microsoft’s offering was a hard sell. But while Mixer was ultimately a failure, as evidenced by yesterday’s news that it was shutting down, that doesn’t mean it didn’t have an important place in the fledgling world of streaming. In fact, the sheer existence of Mixer, and Microsoft’s big-money push to make it relevant, showed some of the world’s biggest entertainers their true worth. And the platform kicked off a talent war that will likely continue even after Mixer no longer exists. Mixer launched in 2016, but its big impact didn’t happen until three years later. Last August, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins — arguably the most famous video game streamer and a public...
