    DECLAN RICE has revealed how Jose Mourinho inspired West Ham to beat Spurs by writing off the Hammers' chances of a top-four finish before their clash at the weekend. Mourinho gave an interview on the Spurs YouTube channel last week where he claimed that although the Hammers sat above them in the table going into the game, they were destined to flop in the final two months of the season. 2Rice celebrates after yesterday's win over SpursCredit: AFP And West Ham captain Rice said those words reached the dressing room in East London – and made his side more determined than ever to put one over their rivals.

    JOSE MOURINHO has insisted his Tottenham side did not deserve to lose their London derby against West Ham as the hosts ran out 2-1 winners.

    Texas storms: A final round of freezing temperatures strikes as state struggles to rebound from winter storms Texas crisis exposes a nation’s vulnerability to climate change The relationship between pro athletes and beat writers is often portrayed as one of antagonists, constantly jockeying with one another over access and ego. But the truth is that, more often than not, it’s just regular people doing their jobs and spending lots of time together.

    John Carmack has proposed an auction system for popular gaming products like GPUs, the PS5, and Xbox Series X. Carmack, the co-founder of id software, believes “we really would be better off with a transparent auction system directly from the manufacturers and a more efficient market.” This type of auction system could be used to beat scalpers, who wouldn’t be willing to pay inflated prices on highly prized new products. “There would be much indignation at reported prices out of the gate, but removing intermediaries should net out better for consumers in the end,” says Carmack on Twitter. Due to a global chip shortage and incredible demand, the true price of a PS5 was more than $1,000 in December, and RTX 3080s were selling for $1,227 instead of the $699 sticker price. Even older graphics cards are sold out right now, and resale value on eBay is climbing. Nvidia is...

    Leigh Vogel/Getty Images In a leaked recording obtained by The Intercept, President-elect Joe Biden warned a number of civil rights leaders that pushing for police reform could hurt their party’s chances of winning the Georgia Senate runoffs and claimed that Republicans used the slogan “defund the police” to “beat the living hell out” of Democrats this year. On Tuesday, Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris joined a phone call with a number of prominent civil rights leaders, including the Rev.

This marks the start of a UK-wide roll-out, in which people age 80 or over, and frontline health and social care workers are the first in line to receive the vaccine. This historic moment was made possible after the UK's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) granted temporary authorization for use of the vaccine last week.

    The head of the Food and Drug Administration was summoned to the White House for a second day running after Britain announced it had approved a COVID-19 vaccine, as Trump officials try to shave days off the time it will take for people to be vaccinated.

An official familiar with discussions said there was growing irritation at needless delays and at the way the U.K. had been able to make a world-leading announcement based on American funding. “The UK is using data from the United States investment,” he said. “So everyone is frustrated that they are able to get to this point ahead of the United States.” FDA commissioner Stephen Hahn was called in on Wednesday, after meeting the White House chief of...

The champion of the 2018 ATP Finals, Alexander Zverev took a spot in the same group as the Serbian.

    Jerick McKinnon’s late score in the 49ers’ game with the Green Bay Packers at Levi’s Stadium was about more than pride. Just ask the folks in Las Vegas. McKinnon’s 1-yard touchdown run with four seconds left, followed by the ensuing extra point, put the final score of Thursday’s game at 34-17.

FOX play-by-play announcer Joe Buck alluded to the importance of the play, saying before McKinnon’s touchdown that, “there are some people interested to see if the 49ers can get into the end zone.” Those who had the under thought they were on their way to a payday when the Packers led 31-3 midway though the fourth quarter. ...
    SANTA CLARA — Draft Night 2020 saw the 49ers make a transcendent move, one that will benefit their offense for years while hurting a NFC rival’s in the process.

Aiyuk is blossoming as a rookie. He is the 49ers’ No. 1 offensive weapon Thursday night when the Packers visit Levi’s Stadium. “He is electric,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said when asked by this news organization in a Tuesday video conference. “He has that suddenness and just athletic ability that a guy like Davante has. “He looks like a pretty darn good player.” One spot after Aiyuk came off the draft board, the Packers made a stupefying choice at No. 26: quarterback Jordan Love, Rodgers’ heir...

    (Reuters) - The Los Angeles Dodgers won Major League Baseball's World Series for the first time since 1988, with a 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in Arlington, Texas on Tuesday, to seal the best-of-seven championship 4-2. The Dodgers' triumph at their third World Series appearance in four years closed out a shortened season in which the final three playoff rounds were held at four neutral-site locations in a bid to limit spread of COVID-19. Rays slugger Randy Arozarena gave his team the early lead when he sent a slider from Tony Gonsolin over the right field wall for a solo shot in the top of the first inning. From there, Rays ace Snell took over, mowing down Dodger hitters until he gave up a one out single to Austin Barnes in the bottom of the sixth. Then, in a decision that will no doubt haunt the Rays, manager...

    LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Cole Holcomb kept his eyes on Ezekiel Elliott in coverage and while rushing the passer, intercepting the ball once after it bounced off the Dallas running back and bulldozing him on the way to a sack later. Holcomb and Washington’s defense dominated Elliott and the Cowboys offense on Sunday, piling up six sacks, the pick and a forced fumble that became a safety in a 25-3 blowout. That defensive play set the tone and helped Washington snap a five-game skid and deal Dallas another frustrating defeat. “The past weeks we’ve played really well in spurts, and then we’re finally starting to get to a more consistent basis with the team,” Holcomb said. “When we’re firing on all cylinders, we can be a good team.” Montez Sweat led Washington (2-5) with two sacks and Landon Collins knocked the ball out of Andy Dalton’s hands for an early...
    LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Washington’s defense finally clamped down on a struggling opponent, piling up six sacks, an interception and a forced fumble that became a safety in a 25-3 blowout of the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday that snapped a five-game skid. Montez Sweat led Washington (2-5) with 2 1/2 sacks, Cole Holcomb had one to go along with a red zone interception and Landon Collins knocked the ball out of Andy Dalton’s hands for an early safety before leaving with an ankle injury. Dalton was under siege all day behind a patchwork offensive line before being knocked out of the game in the third quarter on a shoulder-to-head hit from Jon Bostic, who was ejected. Dalton was 9 of 19 for 75 yards before being injured and walking off under his own power to undergo concussion evaluation. Washington allowed 142 total yards to win a game by double digits...
    By Julie Gordon OTTAWA (Reuters) - Chef Emily Wells was unsure what to expect as she opened the doors of her seasonal restaurant in rural Prince Edward Island the same day Canada's four Atlantic provinces bubbled together, allowing travel between them while keeping their borders restricted to everyone else. The result was far better than she could have imagined. "It was a remarkable summer, I was floored by it," Wells said. "The bubble made all the difference. It certainly worked for us." The border restrictions along with tough public health measures helped the east coast provinces, which have a combined population of 2.4 million, tamp down COVID-19 early on and largely keep the virus at bay even as the rest of the country entered a second wave of infections. That success came at a cost. More than 171,000 jobs were lost, exports plunged and the region's C$5 billion ($3.8 billion)...
    Trevor Lawrence threw two touchdown passes and Travis Etienne ran for three scores as No. 1 Clemson shook off a sluggish performance to win its 27th straight Atlantic Coast Conference game and put away pesky Syracuse 47-21 on Saturday. The Tigers opened 6-0 for the sixth straight season, but it took a late burst to get it done — just like usual against Syracuse (1-5, 1-4). The Orange were the last ACC team to defeat the Tigers (5-0 ACC) with a 27-24 victory in 2017. A year later at Death Valley, Syracuse again looked primed for the upset as it held a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter before Clemson's 27-23 escape to keep its national championship season intact.

    Roman Reigns and Jey Uso will face each other in a heavyweight match at the upcoming Hell in a Cell. As the Tribal Chief revealed, the match would have the “highest stakes” in WWE history.

    LFA signs two-weight GLORY Kickboxing champion Alex Pereira. The LFA has arguably made one of the biggest signings in the history of the promotion, coming to terms with Alex Pereira, the only champ-champ in GLORY Kickboxing history and the only man to hold multiple victories over current UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. Pereira, who has only competed in MMA three times, has been seeking a return to MMA for a while now. In late 2018, it was reported that Pereira had no fights left on his GLORY contract and he was seeking a release from the promotion to return to MMA. He claimed that GLORY prevented him from competing on Dana White’s Contender Series Brazil, and he’d be seeking the chance to fight Adesanya again — this time under MMA rules. Pereira and GLORY eventually came to terms on a new deal, however — one that would allow him to...

    The Ravens are 5-1, but this year Lamar Jackson and Baltimore’s one dimensional offense have problems. Also, the Jets are a disaster and Amy Trask offers her plan to fix them. Lamar Jackson, the reigning NFL MVP, showed in Philadelphia on Sunday he’s capable of breaking land-speed records as a runner, but the Baltimore Ravens still had to withstand a torrid second-half comeback against the undermanned Eagles. But, as the scout points out, it’s easy to watch and study Vrabel and the Titans’ masterclass from January, it’s another to be able to replicate it. “It only works if you can get out in front of them where they can’t just run their way out of a hole,” the scout said. “When Peyton Manning was in Indianapolis, everyone thought playing keep away was enough, but I remember the Dolphins had the ball for 40+ minutes and only kicked field goals. Peyton...
    Malcolm X used to slap white girls around to get back at the white race for the discrimination that his father went through, a landmark biography of the civil rights firebrand claims. In his teens a lawless Malcolm was ‘very, very cruel to white girls’ because of the treatment of his dad Earl Little. Malcolm watched as racists firebombed his family home and grieved Earl's death aged six after he was run over by a streetcar in an incident rumored to have been a murder by a group of white supremacists. Malcolm’s friend John Davis Jr said that he took white girls’ money because they ‘can always go back to daddy to get some more’ - but he never took a dime from a black girl. The anecdotes, which Malcolm left out of his autobiography, are from new book The Dead Are Arising: The Life of Malcolm X by author...

    If you're having an existential crisis, it might be time for some Existential Slices. We're going to spare you any further rhyming couplets and just get to the facts: Existential Slices is a new walk-up pizza window that has taken over half of the Mr. Lucky's Fine Sandwiches at 711 East Sixth Avenue. The idea, according to the pizzeria's Instagram account, was "born out of the dumpster fire that is 2020." Galen Juracek, owner of Mr. Lucky's, converted the dining room of his sandwich shop into Existential Slices as a way to get extra use out of the space while serving as the food component for nextdoor neighbor Don's Club Tavern, owned by the Little Pub Company. "After a few months of the dining room just sitting there empty, we determined it was serving no purpose," Juracek explains. "But we need to survive and Little Pub Company needs to...
    The Astros’ path to go from the villains of MLB back to the World Series took a hit Sunday night, as the Rays held on for a 2-1 win in Game 1 of the best-of-seven ALCS, with Diego Castillo striking out Jose Altuve to end it. The Tampa Bay right-hander, dominant in three outings against the Yankees in the ALDS, got an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded to end the top of the eighth and then got Altuve swinging to finish the game with the tying run on second. “Man, he’s a stud,’’ Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said of Castillo, who tossed four scoreless innings versus the Yankees and was one of the only high-leverage relievers the Rays had available after the bullpen was tested often in the ALDS. “Just a remarkable performance.” It was a rough start for an Astros team attempting to reach the World...
