    Miami : The Mexican Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez, the best pound-for-pound boxer of the moment, assured this that the Turkish Avni Yildirim, his rival this Saturday, will be a tough challenge and that is why he will come to combat in great sporting form. “I respect all fighters. I know what Yildirim brings, he is a strong fighter with the desire to win and I come with the same old mentality, to do my job and continue making history,” Alvarez said at a press conference in Miami. Next Saturday in front of some 15,000 fans at Hard Rock Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins of the NFL, Álvarez will expose his World Boxing Council and World Association super middleweight titles to the Turk. Although the numbers favor the Mexican who has had an overwhelming career in recent years, the champion confessed to being very focused, not relaxing, and only after...

    “How are you? How are you feeling? I’m here to listen to you.” For the first time in a long time Margarida Valls, who is 83 years old and lives alone in Barcelona, you have heard these words daily upon waking up for two months and they have made him happy.

    DENVER (CBS4) – CBS4 is partnered with the Denver Rescue Mission to spread the warmth this winter. More than 6,000 people live in homelessness, and the Rescue Mission is working to get them back into stable housing. A hot meal is one way they get people in need through the door. “My food means more to me than the pay check, because the food is sustaining life, it’s giving somebody a good day at work, and it’s giving somebody a good sleep at night,” said Kelvin Blue, a chef at the Denver Rescue Mission.

In statements after leaving the electoral college, Illa has assured that “voting is safe” and has encouraged to exercise the right to vote “with hope”, since “hope is stronger than fear and affection stronger than hatred”. The former Minister of Health has also stressed that the day is developing “normally” and wanted thank all the people who make this “normal course” possible for their “work and dedication” in these votes marked by the coronavirus pandemic.
    New York : Republican Senator Susan Collins at the federal Capitol. Photo: Samuel Corum / . Although the Democrats in the House of Representatives have already included income thresholds at $ 75,000 and $ 150,000 (individuals and couples) for total eligibility for a third stimulus check of $ 1,400 in the draft bill, Republicans in the Senate are not losing hope that the Biden Administration Please reconsider your offer to reduce those amounts. This Thursday, Susan collins, the spokeswoman for the group of 10 senators who previously met with the president said she had a “good conversation” with Biden, although without giving details of what she shared with the president. “I’m talking to our 10 Republican senators to see if there is some flexibility in the number and see if the president shows more flexibility,” the senator told reporters.

    LOS ANGELES -- Brian Oien has taken on a special patriotic project: turning ordinary wood into extraordinary, handcrafted American flags. "I took a neighbor's flag and actually asked to borrow his flag and he thought I was crazy. Well what are you going to do with it Brian?" said Oien.He took the flag so he could study it carefully, taking a close look at the placement of the stars and the stripes. "I literally got to work the next day on this thing," said Oien. He turned his garage into a wood shop, with the patriotic project giving him purpose. It also allowed him to stay home with his daughter as she battled and survived cancer. "My why in life is my daughter," said Oien. His company has sold over 800 American flags to date. He builds one flag each day."I have these flags pretty much all over my house,"...
    Rudy Giuliani discussed former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial on his radio program on Thursday afternoon, saying that he hoped Trump’s lawyers were “competent” — but he defined “competent” as being willing to put forward the same election fraud conspiracy theories he had on his website. “I would like to see in this impeachment that his lawyers do a good job of separating [Trump] from the riot because there’s no connection between the two things,” Giuliani said. He then claimed to have “a good deal of material that shows that outside people organized that riot, and they were organizing for days and days and days, and many of them are enemies of his,” saying that he had put the evidence on his website, including “text messages from Antifa people to come there and get rid of him, get him out of office.” This reporter perused the ironically-named “Rudy Giuliani’s...
    Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday reacted to the World Health Organization rejecting the notion that the coronavirus came from a lab in Wuhan, China. Pompeo said on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” that “not a thing” has changed his belief that the virus originated in Wuhan because “there was significant evidence.” “I must say the reason we left the World Health Organization was because we came to believe that it was corrupt. It had been politicized. It was bending a knee to General Secretary Xi Jinping in China,” Pompeo outlined. “I hope that’s not the case here with what they have announced today. I will look forward to seeing their reports and analysis. But I don’t believe it’s the case that they got access that they needed.” He continued, “I hope that they got to see all the data and science, into the lab, talk to the...

Thanks to staple locations such as the Apollo Theater, Sylvia’s Restaurant, and Malcolm X’s Shabazz Center, you couldn’t walk a block without feeling that energy that these Black innovators and creatives laid down before us. That was until gentrification. Gentrification shows up like a thief in the night and refuses to leave without wiping Harlem of the spirit that once made it so special. That was until Harlem found its own superhero who refuses to lose her neighborhood to gentrification and systemic racism. Thus, Little Apple was born.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — One year after the emergence of a virus that would upend life in the Bay Area, there were signs that the end of the pandemic is in sight. On Saturday, Andy Balram was upbeat as he made his way into Moscone Center for a COVID-19 vaccination. Balram made sure to show up early for an appointment he booked online Thursday. “That’s very encouraging and I hope that other people my age can do that too,” he said. Kevin Vander Wahl was another happy customer and, like many others, he couldn’t help but think of this day in a larger context. “I’m very excited,” Vander Wahl said. “Thank you to all of those involved. I see light at the end of the tunnel.” Across the Bay at Golden Gate Fields, the Berkeley Fire Department was vaccinating some 800 people Saturday. It was a team effort in every...
    The PP advances in the campaign by turning a deaf ear to the polls and focusing its criticism on Illa on the one hand and the independence movement on the other. The secretary general, Teodoro García Egea, in a ceremony in Tarragona did not speak of the latest news about Bárcenas and focused on defending the PP program for Catalonia with “tax cuts”. He thanked the work of the party at the regional level and warned of the latest government decisions, such as those relating to squatting. The PP will go “to court.” For his part, candidate Alejandro Fernández defended the project. “Our party was able to manage the two worst crises in our history, until this has arrived, and do it brilliantly, overcome them and come out more reinforced. In that case it did come out stronger, with governments of the Popular Party, “he said, before adding that he...
     An NFL record of nine Super Bowl appearances and six titles have understandably earned Tom Brady and army of haters, but that didn’t deter the quarterback from playing along on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.  With Brady’s 10th Super Bowl game coming up on Sunday —  and in an effort to ensure his habit of breaking records doesn’t get to his head — Jimmy Kimmel invited the all star back to the show for another edition of a fan favorite: Mean Tweets. Brady started off by displaying some good sportsmanship, agreeing with one Twitter user that he really does look like the kind of guy who doesn’t know how to use a wrench. Several wished that the quarterback would “cry,” some calling him a “bitch,” others referring to his chin as a “butthole.” “I do cry, too,” Brady admitted, still in relatively good spirits. Brady seemed relatively unfazed throughout the segment,...
    President Donald Trump was working behind the scenes from Mar-a-Lago to try to undermine Rep. Liz Cheney within the Republican conference for she was overwhelmingly reelected to her leadership post – and amid his frustration at his Twitter ban has taken to penning insults for others.  Cheney faced an uproar after voting with Democrats and nine other Republicans to impeach Trump on a charge of 'incitement of insurrection' – but blew away predictions by GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz and others that there were enough votes to strip away her leadership post. Trump spent his time in office inveighing against 'RINOS' and Republicans who stood against him, and people close to him took the move against Cheney as a post-presidency test of Trump's strength in and control over the party. President Donald Trump and his allies viewed the effort to depose Liz Cheney as a test for the party. Trump...
    A week into his new job, Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with family members of hostages or those wrongfully detained abroad and told them that their loved ones "are a top priority in our diplomatic engagements with both allies and adversaries."  Such a meeting in these early days is an acknowledgement that the Biden administration does not want its foreign policy goals to overshadow the plight of detained Americans, and does not plan to repeat the missteps of the Obama administration. However, it is not yet clear what immediate action the new administration will take to secure the release of dozens of Americans held overseas. Hostage policy became a flashpoint for the Obama administration after the brutal 2014 on-camera beheadings by ISIS of Americans, including journalist James Foley. A failed U.S. rescue attempt and the executions of Foley and three other Americans were then used by the terrorists as...
    The Republicans' biggest nightmare. Democrats might have a trifecta for now in the House, Senate, and White House, but it's razor thin and Republicans are as intent as ever in restoring their minoritarian rule in redistricting. They're not even subtle about it anymore. They're not going to reform the party in order to win back voters and compete on a level playing field—they're going to pass all the state voter suppression laws they can to stop any more Jon Ossoffs and Raphael Warnocks, and when they've done that they'll bring on the gerrymanders. That's not just trying to draw congressional boundaries in Republican states to minimize Democratic districts. It's "also being more aggressive about going after Democrat gerrymanders in the blue states," says Adam Kincaid, the executive director of the National Republican Redistricting Trust. Meaning while they bemoan the fact that Democrats used the courts to throw out extreme gerrymanders...
    Almost exactly one year ago, the following headline appeared in the Los Angeles Times: “Coronavirus spreads to Los Angeles, Orange County: How concerned should we be?” More than we knew, obviously. I remember thinking, when the shutdown began last spring, that the days seemed to drag on and yet fade in a flash. A year later, after relentless waves of stress and grief, time is still warped. But since the pandemic hit, we’ve racked up nearly 16,000 deaths in L.A. County, 3,000 in Orange County and almost 40,000 in the state. California has had more than 3.2 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 in that time and in December alone, 2,200 L.A. County healthcare workers tested positive for the virus. So, how much longer will the nightmare last? The short answer is that we don’t know. But with a small but steady trickle of vaccine, and the promise of much more,...
    PARALYSED mice have walked again thanks to a break-through gene therapy that's created hope for the millions of humans with paralysis. German scientists have demonstrated how they were able to repair the damaged spinal cords of mice by injecting something called a designer protein. 3Scientists genetically-engineered a protein that helped the mice repair their damageCredit: Nature Once injected into the brain, the paralysed rodents who couldn't use their back legs were back walking again in two to three weeks. The experiment was conducted by researchers from Ruhr University Bochum in Germany. They developed a protein called "hyper-Interleukin-6" that can stimulate the regeneration of nerve cells that have been damaged. It was genetically engineered because this type of protein does not occur naturally. 3On the left you can see a mouse after week 1 of treatment and on the right is week 8Credit: Nature The scientists also genetically engineered a virus that...
    I choked up. Did you? If not, you should have done. Joe Biden just made the greatest speech of his life and one of the most important political speeches that I've ever heard. And frankly, if you didn't find it emotional, you weren't listening hard enough, or fully comprehending the significance of what he was saying. Or ironically, in the moment I lost it, what he wasn't saying. When Biden asked for a few moments of respectful silence and prayer for the 400,000 Americans who've lost their lives to coronavirus, it was the first time I've seen the President of the United States show those victims and their grieving families a shred of real empathy. And it came from a man who knows so much about the tragedy of losing a loved one. A man whose first wife and baby daughter were killed in a car crash as he was...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Lights around the city went dark, health care workers stopped for a moment of silence, and candles burned in memoriam Tuesday evening for victims of COVID-19. As CBS 2 Political Investigator Dana Kozlov reported, Mayor Lori Lightfoot also took pause, hoping a new president will bring an end to the pandemic. The vibrant lights of the Nederlander Theatre, 24 W. Randolph St. were extinguished Tuesday evening – but not because the venue was dark. The lights went out for 19 seconds on this Tuesday, Jan. 19, to remember all of those lost to COVID-19. Meanwhile outside Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, about two dozen nurses stood outside while remaining staff stayed inside to remember – pausing also for a moment of silence. “Let us remember there is a human life behind each statistic and recited number,” a leader of the vigil said.

    As the United States’ COVID-19 death toll topped the once-unthinkable mark of 400,000 lives lost Tuesday, California reached a milestone of its own, surging past 3 million coronavirus cases as the state endures one of the worst outbreaks in the country. There is mounting evidence that the massive increase in cases that swamped hospitals in much of California over the past two months is finally abating. But any optimism is also being tempered by frustration at the slow rollout across the state of the vaccines that will ultimately end the pandemic, and the specter of vaccine shortages for weeks if not months to come. State Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly reported Tuesday that the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 in California is in decline, as is the number being treated in intensive care units and the percentage of coronavirus tests that come back positive. The basic...
    MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has called for a military coup following his meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House, where he was seen holding notes about martial law and the Insurrection Act.   Lindell, Trump's informal advisor who was a former crack addict-turned pillow company boss, appeared at the White House Friday afternoon for a brief meeting.  He says that he presented new theories regarding election fraud, which he has enthusiastically backed despite the federal government certifying the vote.    Lindell spoke about the meeting with Right Side Broadcasting, a conservative media outlet based in Alabama, in a Facebook interview Saturday and admitted he 'hopes' the heavy military presence in Washington DC is a sign Trump will use it to cling to power.  The interviewer said 'people are hoping that this military presence is a response' to election fraud. 'That’s where my hope lies,' Lindell responded.  MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has...
    Senator Lindsey Graham said on Fox News that it would “destroy” President Donald Trump if he pardoned any of the Capitol mob rioters. There’s been a great deal of footage from the storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters, and people have already been arrested and charged. Graham directly appealed to the president during a segment on Maria Bartiromo’s program, starting by saying, “Mr. President, your policies will stand the test of time. You’re the most important figure in the Republican party. You can shape the direction of the party. Keep your movement alive.” But he went on to issue this warning: “There are a lot of people urging the president to pardon folks who participated in defiling the Capitol, the rioters. I don’t care if you went there and spread flowers on the floor, you breached the security of the Capitol, you interrupted a joint session of Congress, you...
    Hope Beel took to Instagram on Saturday afternoon with a stunning, five-photo update that thrilled her 1.6 million followers. The curvaceous fitness model showcased a tantalizing look that drew focus to her most impressive assets, and paired the snaps with a sassy caption that teased she didn’t want any pictures taken. Hope’s array of spot-on poses and seductive demeanor indicated otherwise, however, and over 14,500 fans agreed by double-tapping their screens in less than a day after the post was uploaded. She wore a wildly sexy outfit that featured a pair of skintight, cheetah-printed pants and a barely-there top that exposed a massive amount of her voluptuous breasts. The tapered, ankle-length pants had all of the details one would see on a pair of jeans, but it was difficult to discern with what material they were constructed. They hugged her enviable backside and drew attention to the shapeliness of her...
    Recently, while listening to news and worrying about the immense damage this country has sustained after years of horrendously poisonous division, I switched the channel and heard the Beatles song “We Can Work It Out.” Until a few months ago, I thought such a sentiment might be something people on all sides of this nation’s chasms could endorse. But not anymore. Certainly not after the seditious violence we witnessed in Washington on Wednesday. It’s not that this writer who likes to ride in the moderate lane hasn’t attempted to light up my corner to help us all just get along. Columns I’ve done on such for MinnPost include one I wrote shortly after the 2016 presidential election about missing holiday greetings from friends on other political planets and another I did before that election that included a poll of friends and acquaintances from across the U.S. regarding the idea that...
    Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas said Thursday that some of his GOP colleagues in the Senate gave supporters “false hope” that the 2020 presidential election results could be overturned.  Cotton, a longtime Trump ally who said before Jan. 6 he would not object to the electoral college certification, called out fellow Republicans for playing politics on Fox News Thursday morning. “Look, you have some senators who, for political advantage, were giving false hope to their supporters.” Some senators were giving false hope about an “emergency audit” of the election results and delaying the transition of power. They raised money off of this for political gain. That was never going to happen. That deception needs to stop now. pic.twitter.com/RQs09pR1Hk — Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) January 7, 2021 He also his colleagues were “misleading [supporters] into thinking that somehow, yesterday’s actions in congress could reverse the results of the election.” (RELATED:...
    CBS All Access Headed into the final episode of the season, things didn’t look good for the crew of the Discovery. The ship was controlled by Osyraa and her Regulators. Burnham and Book were their captives. The bridge crew was about to embark on a seemingly impossible mission to retake the ship. Culber, Adira, Saru were trapped on the dilithium planet getting sicker by the minute, and their fate rested in the hands of a terrified Kelpian. It didn’t seem like there were many win scenarios in either situation. But of course, Starfleet always finds a way, which might as well be the motto for the finale.

    ANNANDALE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — With their baby sister battling leukemia, five siblings stepped up to see if their bone marrow could be a match, and the results were unbelievable. Meet the Hewitt siblings — Justine, Kurtis, Morgan, Colin, Andrew and Ian. In September, 15-year-old Morgan, the baby of the family and a sophomore at North Hunterdon High School, was diagnosed with leukemia. “Out of the six of us, who can handle this? It’s definitely her,” sister Justine told CBS2’s Vanessa Murdock. “Strongest person I know, really,” brother Andrew said. “She’s got that fighting spirit,” Justine said.

    Finding new ways to detect cancer when it's still at an early stage offers the 'single biggest opportunity to save lives from the disease', says Cancer Research UK. One of those could be the breast cancer home screening device developed by 23-year-old Judit Giro Benet, a biomedical engineer. The Blue Box, which can detect early signs of the disease in just 40 minutes, caught the attention of billionaire inventor Sir James Dyson — who recently awarded Judit a £30,000 prize for her device, which, he said, could 'solve a very real problem' and 'benefit many people'. While breast cancer has better survival rates than many others — 85 per cent of women will be alive five years or more after diagnosis compared with 19 per cent of those with lung cancer — only about 40 per cent of the 55,200 new breast cancer diagnoses in the UK each year are...

Steffy Forrester’s News Shocks Liam Spencer Liam can hardly get the words out of his mouth. “You’re serious? You’re… pregnant?” he asks Steffy. “Yeah,” she replies. Then, Liam asks Steffy a question that he has no business asking. “You think I’m the father?” he questions her. The Spencer heir knows that he and Steffy slept together. They were both drunk on tequila, and one thing led to another. Even if they used protection, these things happen, and he should realize that there’s a good possibility that he has another child on the way. “Obviously, there’s a chance,” Steffy explodes.

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Norwegian officials insisted Monday that there was “still hope” in finding survivors in air pockets five days after a landslide killed at least seven people as it carried away homes in a village north of the capital. Three people are still missing. Police spokesman Roger Pettersen said search efforts in the landslide-hit village of Ask, 25 kilometers (16 miles) northeast of Oslo, are still considered “a rescue operation.” But only bodies have been found in the last few days. The region's below-freezing temperatures are “working against us, but we have been very clear in our advice to the (rescuers) that as long as there are cavities where the missing may have stayed, it is possible to survive,” said Dr. Halvard Stave, who taking part in the rescue operation.

    YONKERS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — An early morning fire left one person dead and three others hurt at an apartment building in Yonkers. Now, several families are starting the New Year without a home. Officials said dozens of people managed to escape as flames engulfed the building on Bruce Avenue. But one man lost his life in the blaze. Manuel Vega was visiting family nearby when he noticed the flames shooting out of the building. He, his wife and nephew rushed to help. “I had to look again, like something out of a movie,” he told CBS2’s Kiran Dhillon. “Banging on every door, every door from the first floor all the way to the fourth… People didn’t believe us, because I don’t look like a fireman.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — As Baltimore enters the new year, the city’s new mayor will face a number of challenges, not the least of which are the dual crises of COVID-19 and crime.

    The coronavirus pandemic has made this a difficult year for millions of people around the world, including my wife and me. Yet we’ve chosen to focus on a simple but deep lesson of hope that I first learned as an Army Green Beret medic in the jungles of Vietnam, where I was severely wounded. It’s a lesson that can help everyone. I was part of a team of Green Berets sent to the village of Dak Seang in 1969, where I served as the chief medic for some 400 Montagnard soldiers and 2,300 women and children.

    NEEDHAM (CBS) – Christmas is coming early to thousands of children in Greater Boston and beyond, all thanks to Hope & Comfort, a non-profit that collects and distributes basic hygiene products to children and young adults who could use a little extra help this holiday season. “There are about 250,000 children in Massachusetts that are hygiene insecure. That means they wake up each day having be worried about how they look, smell and feel because they can’t afford a simple bar of soap,” Jeff Feingold, President and Founder of Hope & Comfort. Feingold says coronavirus has made matters worse. Over the weekend, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, deodorant and all types of hygiene products were being loaded up to be delivered to Beacon Academy in Boston. “This new collaboration is just great where we can meet the needs of the girls in the class now,” said Gretchen Warland of the Beacon Academy...
    Filmmaker Patty Jenkins says she is hoping to use her upcoming film, Wonder Woman 1984, to add to the conversation on how each of us can discover the hero within.

    The Detroit Lions will hold out hope as long as they can that Matthew Stafford can play at Tennessee with banged-up ribs. “We’ll take it until the end of the week,” interim coach Darrell Bevell said Monday. “He’s a little bit better this afternoon than he was this morning.” Stafford was knocked out of Sunday’s 31-27 setback to Green Bay with a rib injury. The veteran quarterback appeared to get hurt while diving for a first down at the Packers 5 midway through the fourth quarter. Stafford stayed in the game to hand off to Kerryon Johnson for a touchdown on the next play, but was evaluated by the team’s medical staff on the sideline. Stafford went toward the locker room, returned to throw passes near the benches before going back out of sight. Detroit (5-8) probably will keep Stafford out completely or limited at most during practice leading up...
    Washington (CNN)Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn said Sunday that it's his "greatest hope" that the first coronavirus vaccinations in the US are doled out on Monday. "Well, my hope, again, is that this happens very expeditiously -- hopefully tomorrow," Hahn told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union." "It would be my greatest hope and desire that that occur tomorrow."The comments from Hahn come the same day that freight trucks carrying about 184,275 vials of coronavirus vaccine departed a Pfizer plant in Portage, Michigan, marking a monumental moment in the US' response to the deadly pandemic. Though the combined 189 boxes of vaccine vials are expected to arrive in all 50 states on Monday, the commissioner noted that before the vaccine can be given to people, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield must first accept a recommendation from the agency's Advisory...
    The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah begins at sundown Thursday, coming during a pandemic that all of us around the world will remember for the rest of our lives. As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, this has been a year of extraordinary struggle and challenges we never could have imagined. The disease COVID-19 has claimed more than 1.5 million lives worldwide, and the death toll sadly continues to rise. Millions of people have also lost their jobs due to the economic impact of the virus. We’ve even been separated from those we love. This holiday season will find many families fragmented, celebrating in different locations, with only the telephone or an electronic screen to bring them together.

It seems that any light in the world has been extinguished, leaving only darkness....
    As the days count down to Jan. 20, President Donald Trump, who has rarely seen a norm he couldn’t break, may be tempted to break just one more — and pardon himself before he leaves office in case he is later prosecuted for federal crimes. If he does, many Americans will react with outrage. But a self-pardon by Trump, odious as it might seem, could also be a backhanded gift to President-elect Joe Biden, by instantly removing pressure on the new administration to mire itself in a divisive legal pursuit of the former president. Biden faces a genuine dilemma. A bedrock principle of American democracy is that no man is above the law, not even a president. But if Biden were to move quickly to prosecute the man he just beat in an election — a man who shows every sign of planning to run again — the result would...
    Ron Howard addressed the criticism surrounding his new Netflix movie, Hillbilly Elegy, which has received mostly negative reviews despite the all-star talent behind it. The movie, based on the memoir by conservative writer J.D. Vance, tells the story of three generations of an Appalachian family, whose youngest member rises out of poverty to become a Yale Law student. Vance’s 2016 book became a bestseller, thanks in part to the way it helped explain Donald Trump’s popularity among poor white voters. Howard’s film, which stars Amy Adams and Glenn Close, mostly removes the political subtext from the book and centers on the family drama instead. Hillbilly Elegy currently has a paltry 26 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Entertainment Weekly gave the film an F and described it as an “American horror story.” The Boston Globe called it “a neoliberal’s fantasy and a sociopolitical tract defanged.” Meanwhile, the New Yorker...
    By Robert Preidt HealthDay Reporter (HealthDay) TUESDAY, Dec. 1, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Case studies and autopsy results are confirming that, in some cases, COVID-19 can cause such severe lung damage that patients require a lung transplant to survive. In a new study, researchers in Chicago analyzed discarded tissue from COVID-19 patients who had lung transplants and from patients who died of the disease. They found that COVID-19 can destroy the "fundamental framework" of the lungs, meaning the organs simply cannot recover. And that means a patient's treatment choices become very limited. "We provide explicit evidence that COVID-19 can cause permanent damage to the lung in some patients for whom lung transplantation is the only hope for survival," said study principal investigator Dr. Ankit Bharat. He's chief of thoracic surgery and surgical director of the Northwestern Medicine Lung Transplant Program, in Chicago. His team also discovered unique cells -- called...
    The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers for Tuesday, December 1 indicate that Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) will betray Dr. John Finnegan (Tanner Novlan).

She claimed that it was for their daughter’s sake. But when she moved on with Finn, it seemed as if she had left Liam behind. It appears as if she has been lying to herself and that she still wants...
    Joe Scarborough cackled as he reacted to the avalanche of conspiracy theories President Donald Trump invoked in his free-wheeling interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo. In Trump’s first TV interview since the 2020 election, the president railed against the “rigged” election, suggested federal law enforcement had a hand in the alleged corruption and fumed over the setbacks in court for his legal attempts to dispute the results. Trump couldn’t provide any proof to substantiate his claims, yet Bartiromo took his side and offered a little-to-no challenge for his assertions throughout the interview. Naturally, the conversation was a significant news item, but when Scarborough brought it up for discussion on Morning Joe, he laughed at the deluge of false, evidence-free claims. “Well, that clip, of course, from Saturday Night Live. We hope you enjoyed it,” Scarborough said with obvious sarcasm. “Hard to actually parody that. It’s so funny.” The Morning Joe...

    Halsey released her debut collection of poetry, "I Would Leave Me If I Could," on Tuesday. Several poems contain lines that would later become lyrics in Halsey's songs. "You Were First," for example, contains exact phrases that reappear in "Alanis' Interlude" ("Soft skin, soft eyes / All these beautiful laughs and beautiful thighs"). Two poems bear the same titles as songs they'd become: "Forever ...

(Photo: Getty Images) In the middle of two public health pandemics this year — both COVID-19 and death by the hands of police officers — sympathetic white folks listened to podcasts, watched talk shows that featured Black scholars and put Black writers on the top of every bestseller list in the country. All of this performative progress only to find out in November that they still voted for Trump. I am sure many of them enjoyed the moment to grab the perfect Instagram photo, Twitter header, or even add a cultural hashtag to their bio, but we need folks who will do the work and not just talk about it. We need our own people.  A voter cast their ballots at a polling station in Hunter-Bellevue...
    Physicians Ugur Sahin and Oezlem Tuereci, who bonded over their love of medical research, are the married couple behind the Covid-19 vaccine that could change the world.  Mr Sahin came from humble roots to build two billion-dollar companies but still rides to work on his mountain bike. Now the 'modest' 55-year-old physician turned chief executive of a German biotech firm and his wife Oezlem Tuereci, 53, a fellow board member of BioNTech, are being hailed as the 'dream team' behind the world's hopes for a Covid vaccine. The global race to find a Covid-19 vaccine took a leap forward today when pharma companies Pfizer and BioNTech claimed their jab is 90 per cent effective.   Boris Johnson promised the UK will be at the 'front of the pack' for the new coronavirus vaccine tonight after the massive breakthrough.  Ugur Sahin, pictured above, came from humble roots to build two billion-dollar companies...
    Melania Trump implemented several strict safety measures among her staff amid the coronavirus pandemic - including mandating face masks - and was shocked to see her husband's aides failing to take the same precautions, a new report has claimed.  The 50-year-old First Lady, who tested positive for COVID-19 on October 1, along with her husband and their 14-year-old son Barron, took several steps to protect herself and her aides in the East Wing, a source told Bloomberg -  adding that Melania was 'perplexed' to so many of the President's staff members without face masks.  According to the report, Melania asked an aide, 'What's wrong with these people?' on one occasion when she and Trump were traveling on Air Force One and she realized that nobody around them was wearing a face mask.  Safety first: Melania Trump 'ordered' her staff to wear face masks in the office, and urged them to...
    Savannah Rychcik November 3, 2020 0 Comments Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is railing against Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for his relationship with President Donald Trump and voicing his opposition to him maintaining his seat. MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin asked Reid on Tuesday if he thinks Graham will hold onto his seat and what he makes of how he has conducted himself in his relationship with Trump. “It’s very hard for me to say this because Lindsey and I have worked together on stuff and when John McCain died, he just went to the dark side. He was happier playing golf with Donald Trump,” Reid said. He added, “I hope that Lindsey loses. That’s difficult for me to say, but I sure hope he loses.” Watch his remarks below: Fmr.

    A 99-year-old Black man born to a plantation sharecropper is urging Americans to exercise their right to vote, adding that he hopes “things get better politically” in the country.  Dr. Robert H. Smith Sr., of Jackson, Miss., who was born on the Burks Plantation near Rayville, La., in 1921, told ABC News that “Voting is an experience that every American citizen should have” when “we the people decide who's going to be our leader." "I remember when I couldn't vote," said Smith, who submitted his absentee ballot while wearing a face mask and an “I Voted” sticker last month after waiting in line for 20 minutes with his son.  Although the 15th Amendment, adopted in 1870, legally granted Black men the right to vote, Southern laws, including literacy tests and poll taxes, still prevented many African Americans from voting for decades.  In 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting...
    The Bold and the Beautiful recap for Thursday, October 29 features Dr. John Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) who questioned Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson). He asked if Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) really told him that she wanted to be with him and not with Liam. Thomas seemed confused but later replied that he had a lot on his mind. Finn again asked him about Hope, per SheKnows Soaps. The doctor thought that she and Liam were a solid couple and was confused by his remark. In his mind, Thomas heard the Hope doll mocking the flip-flopper, Liam. Finn was on high alert as he watched Thomas and noticed that something was off. The designer tried to cover by saying that he needed to eat something and was dealing with a lot of stress. As seen in the below image, Finn looked perplexed as he left the office.

    President Donald Trump's decision to double down on scathing attacks on Hunter Biden in the final days of the campaign is getting bad reviews from 2016 rival turned loyalist Sen. Ted Cruz. 'I don't think it moves a single voter,' the Texas senator said, dissing the strategy. Cruz spoke with Axios on HBO after watching the president's final debate with Joe Biden. It was a contest where Trump not only referenced Hunter and what he calls his 'laptop from hell,' but brought along as his special guest Tony Bobulinski, who says he did business deals in China that would have cut in the former vice president.   'I don't think it moves a single voter,' Cruz said, dissing the strategy of President Trump going after Hunter Biden Cruz was swayed by Biden's comeback when Trump raised the issue – after Biden decided to bring up Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who...
    A 91-year-old coronavirus survivor is bringing hope and joy to others by painting a playful watercolor each day of the pandemic.  Bonnie Bowen of Columbus, Ohio, was challenged by her daughter Betsy Hampton to paint daily pictures and post them on Facebook as a way to stay in touch with family and friends, according to The Columbus Dispatch.  The nonagenarian has always been an artist, but she has created more than 200 watercolors during the global crisis.

    Perhaps the biggest piece of news to emerge from President Donald Trump’s interview with 60 Minutes is his affirmation to Lesley Stahl that he wants the Supreme Court to end the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. Trump made good on his threat to leak the entirety of the interview, which he ended abruptly over what he derided as unfair. In 2016 then-candidate Trump promised voters that he would replace Obamacare with a much better health care plan, though his administration has thus far failed to introduce. Stahl reminded Trump of this — a fact on which the president appeared to get somewhat defensive in what was a mostly contentious interview. “So why didn’t you develop a health plan,” she asked. “It is developed,” Trump replied. “It is fully developed; it’s going to be announced very, very soon,” he continued, a pledge he has made so often that...
    “We all have to hope and pray” that Donald Trump loses the election in November, Diane Abbott has said, blasting the leader as “the most racist U.S. president” in living memory. The veteran Labour MP was speaking on Sunday to an online conference held by the far-left Stand Up To Racism (SUTR) group when she claimed to have “never known a U.S. president who so blatantly pandered to white nationalism in the way that Donald Trump does”. “And we all have to hope and pray that he loses the forthcoming presidential election,” said Abbott, who last year declared it “unacceptable for the President of the United States to intervene in British politics” after Trump highlighted rising crime in the UK capital under Labour mayor Sadiq Khan.

    We're number one! And number two! And four and five! This week, U.S. News & World Report released its list of the "150 Best Places to Live in the U.S. in 2020-21," one of those rare listicle efforts that actually gets some respect. And this round, Colorado cities took four of the five top spots in the country. Boulder ranked first and Denver second; Colorado Springs came in fourth and Fort Collins fifth. The only city to stop a Colorado sweep was Austin, which placed third. In their Facebook comments on our story about Colorado's near sweep, some readers applauded...and some demanded a recount.

    The national attention garnered by Lauren Boebert over her run in Colorado's 3rd Congressional District reached a new peak last night, October 15. That's when an ABC News report divulged that her former campaign manager, Sherronna Bishop, had praised the far-right, neo-fascist group the Proud Boys in a Facebook video last year, and showcased a quote from Boebert during a May appearance on what's described as a "QAnon-friendly podcast." At the time, Boebert said this: "Everything that I've heard of Q, I hope that this is real. Because it only means that America is getting stronger and better, and people are returning to conservative values." While the revelations may strike those who live outside Boebert's district, which encompasses communities such as Grand Junction and Pueblo, as a devastating blow, the political leanings of residents and the specifics of Boebert's appeal raise doubts regarding whether they'll have a sizable impact on...
    Denver has a lot to reckon with — gentrification, the political divide, racism, sexism and more — and that's exactly what the group Soul Stories is all about, says Creative Director Shelsea Ochoa. Through community gatherings, podcasts and large-scale performances, the organization tackles hard topics and works toward community healing. Now a year into the project, the group just released a podcast hosted by founder Danny Mazur and produced by Ochoa and former Westword staff writer and The Syndicate Podcast host Chris Walker; the show looks into the death of Elijah McClain, the 23-year-old massage therapist and violinist who died after a violent encounter with the Aurora Police Department in August 2019. Westword caught up with Ochoa to find out more about the podcast, which comes out today, October 16.  Related Stories Play It Forward: Alex Blocker Is Making Music for a Better World Lares Feliciano Mourns Victims of Police Violence in...
    New Yorkers who did not flee the city are hunkering down for the winter. Almost one-third of New Yorkers (32%) say that recovery in the city will take a year, while 15% believe the economy will recover fully from the COVID-19 pandemic by next March, and nearly half (46%) believe that the city’s recovery is tied to the development of a vaccine, a survey released Thursday found. A smaller percentage (6%) believe the city’s economy will never fully recover. These are key findings from a survey of the public perceptions and experiences of 1,000 New York City residents conducted by the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy. They were polled from Sept. 25 to Sept. 27. The same panel of respondents will be surveyed following the Nov. 3 presidential election and again in January 2021, the researchers said. “In the face of this pandemic,...
    Judge Amy Coney Barrett pushed back Wednesday against an effort by Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) to argue that she would endanger the right to contraception because her mentor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia, thought a key decision was wrong. Coons raised the case of Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), which struck down a state ban on contraception. Scalia had said that the case was wrongly decided because it referred to a “penumbra” of rights, leading to more activist decisions. The Delaware Senator quizzed Barrett about the case: Coons: When we spoke on the phone last week, you said you cannot think of any specific issue of law where you disagreed with Justice Scalia. Do you agree with him that Griswold was wrongly decided, and thus states should be able to make it illegal to use contraceptives if they so choose? Barrett: Well, Senator, as I have said a number of times, I cannot...
    FOXBORO (CBS) – Bummed out Patriots fans expressed their concerns and disappointment on Sunday after the NFL shut down their team’s facility following another positive coronavirus test. New England was scheduled to play Denver on Monday night, but the game is now postponed. But while fans hoped to watch the Patriots in action against the Broncos, they agree with the move to reschedule the game. “I think it’s absolutely the smart thing to do. Everyone needs to stay safe,” Patriots fan Tom Lampron said. And even without a football game, people still showed up to Gillette Stadium on Sunday. Fans visited the pro shop to grab gear and look at the stadium. “Well, we just like coming, be close to the team, give them our support however we can. So we’re going to go to the pro shop and spend a little money,” Patriots fan Brandon Sullivan said. Fans buying...
    COURTESYFor the fourth year in a row, Rising Hope, a specialty collaborative IPA made by two Tampa breweries returns. In 2017, Brew Bus joined forces with Cigar City to create the tangerine and passion fruit IPA called “Rising Hope.” Each year, 100% of the proceeds from Rising Hope brew sales are donated to the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation as part of the Brewing Funds the Cure fundraising initiative.  According to the foundation, 43 children are diagnosed every day with pediatric cancer.  In a video promoting Rising Hope’s initiative, Chris Geib, Director of Development at NPCF, shared that last year, with 23 states pouring the stuff, $125,000 was raised from beer sales alone. This year, with 30 breweries nationwide hosting Rising Hope both on tap and by the six-pack, Geib is hoping to double that.  The limited-time IPA is available for sips and takeaway packs at both Brew Bus Brewing in...

On Sunday, Sadie, 23, took to Instagram to share the happy news with her 3.8 million followers. The author and podcast host wrote that she was “screaming with excitement,” and she gushed over how much she and her husband already “adore” their child.

    (CNN)The four progressive Democratic congresswomen known as "The Squad" expressed surprise on Friday night when Twitter posted about its policy against wishing harm or death to someone in light of President Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis. Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts have all spoken out about the threats they receive on social media and say Twitter isn't doing enough about it. Responding to media reporting Friday about people wishing death to the President, a verified account run by Twitter's spokespeople tweeted, "tweets that wish or hope for death, serious bodily harm or fatal disease against *anyone* are not allowed and will need to be removed.""Seriously though, this is messed up. The death threats towards us should have been taking more seriously by [Twitter]," Rep. Rashida Tlaib tweeted in response. Rep. Rashida Tlaib describes personal threats at hearing...
    Twitter will remove tweets wishing for President Donald Trump’s death following his and first lady Melania Trump’s Thursday coronavirus diagnosis, the social media giant told Motherboard. “Content that wishes, hopes or expresses a desire for death, serious bodily harm or fatal disease against an individual is against our rules,” Twitter told Motherboard, which is part of Vice Media. The company added that the months-old rule applies to posts about the president, and Tweets that violate the policy will be removed. The social media platform also added that not all tweets that appear to engage in the prohibited behavior will be targeted. “[We] won’t take enforcement action on every Tweet,” Twitter told Motherboard. “We’re prioritizing the removal of content when it has a clear call to action that could potentially cause real-world harm.” Zara Rahim, who identifies herself as a previous staffer for former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of...
    Twitter said on Friday that it will delete tweets hoping for the death of President Trump. The social media platform has previously expressed that any post "that wishes, hopes or expresses a desire for death, serious bodily harm or fatal disease against an individual" is not permissible on its site. The policy would apply to posts about the president, the company told Motherboard on Friday. Twitter said that in some cases, users may even have their accounts suspended for publishing content that violates this rule. When asked for more specifics about circumstances under which accounts would be suspended, Twitter referred the Washington Examiner to a page on its website that states, "When determining the penalty for violating this policy, we consider a number of factors including, but not limited to, the severity of the violation and an individual’s previous record of rule violations." Early on Friday morning,...
    Upon hearing the news that President Donald Trump — along with first lady Melania Trump — tested positive for the coronavirus, rather than express sympathy and hope for a speedy recovery, a growing chorus of leftists jumped into the fray with giddy reactions to what undoubtedly is a dream come true for them. What were the reactions? Card-carrying Trump-hater Kathy Griffin — who won't soon live down her bloody Trump head stunt or her embarrassing apology for it — was only too happy to pile on with tasteless messages for both the president and the first lady: I’d like to volunteer to be your caregiver.

(AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino) PARIS (AP) At the mere mention of Novak Djokovic's name, at the mere thought of sharing a court with a 17-time Grand Slam champion and the French Open's No. 1-seeded man, Daniel Elahi Galan broke into a wide smile Thursday. He used these phrases: ''really, really excited'' and ''really, really happy'' and ''really, really special.'' Galan is, after all, ranked 153rd and never had won...
    A teenager has admitted helping to push a log off a cliff that struck and killed a married mother of four who was taking photographs at an Ohio state park. Jordan Buckley, 17, pleaded guilty last Friday to involuntary manslaughter in the death of 44-year-old Victoria Schafer. Under terms of a plea agreement, prosecutors dropped murder and reckless homicide charges against him. TEXAS MAN WHO STOPPED CHURCH SHOOTING SAYS HE 'HAD TO TAKE OUT' GUNMAN BECAUSE 'EVIL EXISTS'  Buckley apologized for his insensitive behavior. “I understand that my actions that day has caused your family's life to change,” he said in court. “I know that no words that I can speak can bring back your beloved wife, daughter and sister.” He said her death has made him aware and humble. “My hope, from all of this, is to use this trauma to learn and live the rest of my life...

    The Bold and the Beautiful recap for Tuesday, September 22 features Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) and Hope Logan Spencer (Annika Noelle) raving about Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri). They were proud of his baseball skills, per SheKnows Soaps. Talk turned to Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) who still had not returned from the cliff house. She was surprised that he was taking so long at Steffy Forrester’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) house. Thomas didn’t think that Liam should have been there in the first place, but Hope understood that her husband had wanted to check up on his ex-wife. Thomas scoffed that Liam was always rescuing the “damsel in distress.” As seen in the below image, he felt that Steffy was doing really well even though she was still in a considerable amount of pain. He felt that Liam just didn’t want another man in his sister’s life and had it out...
    From Kelly Clarkson’s lips to the last seven Stanley Cup winners’ ears. What didn’t kill them made them stronger, each of those teams having faced elimination at least once on the road to a championship. Will the Islanders join those teams that have come out on the other side? Jordan Eberle’s double overtime goal to win Tuesday’s Game 5 against the Lightning marked the team’s second escape act of the tournament following the second-round Game 7 shutout against the Flyers. They would need at least two more — Thursday’s Game 6 before Saturday’s if-necessary Game 7 — in order to have the chance to join that group. A review of the peril the last seven Cup-winners faced: 2019: St. Louis Blues The Blues were down 3-2 to Dallas in the second round before a Game 6 victory on the road that preceded Game 7 victory in double overtime on current...
    The last time the Giants opened their season with a Monday night home game was 25 years ago. Then, as now, the Giants lost. The Giants hope the similarity of starting 0-1 is where the comparison ends. Back in 1995, Dan Reeves predicted the arrival of the Cowboys at Giants Stadium would prove the gap had narrowed between the two franchises. After a 35-0 thrashing, all Reeves’ team proved was the gap was gaping. The Cowboys went on to win their third Super Bowl in a four-year span. The Giants finished 5-11. This Monday night home opener was closely contested – for a half. The Giants did enough right that envisioning better days ahead is not merely wishful thinking. They did enough wrong to reinforce the factual claim that they are not in the same stratosphere as any of the NFL elite. The 26-16 loss to the Steelers –...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Loud and happy screams erupt in unison from the seven-member pop stars BTS when they hear they have notched their first No. 1 hit on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart. “DREAM,” yells band member RM. “It still doesn’t feel real,” adds SUGA, speaking in Korean through a translator. “We’re really happy.” “Dynamite,” the group’s first all-English song, debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. music charts this week, making BTS the first Korean pop act to top the chart.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced they've signed deal with Netflix for undisclosed sum to make 'content that gives hope' and 'inspirational family content.' 
    At-home coronavirus tests may soon be sensitive enough to tell people if they are infected before they even develop symptoms, thanks to a new invention.  Cheap, daily, at-home coronavirus testing would be the 'holy grail' to reopening society ahead of a widely available vaccine.  But current testing technology is unlikely to pick up the virus from nasal, saliva or urine samples until a few days after exposure, and typically after symptoms have begun (if someone is going to become symptomatic).  That's because there aren't enough copies of the virus in the person's body - and therefore their sample in those first days of infection - to be detected by the extremely powerful machines in high-tech labs.  Researchers at the University of Cincinnati and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, however, have invented a device that could solve that problem by forcing far higher concentrations of the virus within samples, so that a...
    Josep Maria Bartomeu has always been optimistic about the future of Leo Messi in Barcelona. Although the player has already told the club that he wants to leave this summer, the president of Barcelona assured a year ago that he was very calm about the Argentine’s situation: « Leo is a very Barça fan and I hope he will continue playing at Barça for many years »Bartomeu said. «Messi has a contract that we signed two years ago for four seasons. He can leave Barça before the last year, which is the 20/21 season. It would be a personal decision of the player to stop playing football or to go play wherever he wants. This clause was used by others like Iniesta, Xavi, Carles Puyol … », explained Bartomeu in an interview on BarçaTV. If you have 54 seconds to spare and you want to be clear...
