    The enhanced version of Final Fantasy VII Remake for the PS5 wasn’t the only Midgar-related news today. Square Enix also revealed an even bigger surprise: a battle royale for mobile devices that’s set three decades before the original game. It’s called Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier, and it’s slated to come to both Android and iOS devices later this year. We don’t know much more about the game just yet, but, as the title implies, it’s centered on Soldier, a group of enhanced fighters that plays an important role in FFVII ’s story. A multiplayer battle royale seems like a strange way to tell a story like that, but the trailer at least shows some iconic FFVII locales and what looks like fast-paced combat involving both weapons and magic. A second mobile spinoff, a story-driven game called Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis, was also announced. It’s due to come...

    Getty Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr. For a brief moment at the start of the offseason, it looked like there was a real chance Derek Carr could get traded by the Las Vegas Raiders. As time has passed, that now seems highly unlikely. In fact, Carr could be getting a new contract sooner than anybody expected. More reports have emerged over the past few weeks that have shown the Raiders don’t have much of an interest in trading their starting quarterback. Longtime NFL insider Adam Caplan decided to drop the strongest report on Carr’s status with the team yet. “Carr may end up getting his contract extended. That’s the belief around the league,” Caplan reported recently. “They do not want to trade [Carr]. I can tell you that is a fact.” NFL: "Last year around this time, he was 100% available." @caplannfl on the latest news with...
    Meghan McCain lashed out at Dr. Anthony Fauci during Monday’s broadcast of “The View,” questioning comments he made over the weekend. McCain shared a clip of Fauci telling CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” that despite the vaccine, people should hold off on getting together with family and that Americans could still be wearing masks in 2022. WATCH: “So I was very frustrated when I saw this clip,” McCain began, pausing to acknowledge the massive loss felt by hundreds of thousands of Americans who lost family members and friends to the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s horrific and very sad, and the grief that our country is going through should not be downplayed.” McCain then pivoted back to Fauci, saying that his messaging didn’t appear to match up with what was happening in other countries where the vaccine was also rolling out.

    On Friday’s broadcast of NPR’s “Morning Edition,” Director of the Harvard Healthy Buildings Program and Associate Professor Dr. Joseph Allen criticized the CDC’s school re-opening guidelines by stating that if schools follow the guidelines, schools that are open now would close, and “if schools start following this new guidance strictly, kids are not getting back to full-time school.” Allen said, “We’ve seen examples where schools have stayed open and have been effectively open with very little in-school transmission, even in communities with high community spread. In fact, CDC’s own report has shown that. We’ve also seen the opposite. We’ve seen low community spread, poor controls in school, and cases. So, the community spread metric idea sounds great, but the reality is, it doesn’t really tell us what’s happening in schools. 90% of the schools right now in the U.S. are in what CDC deems the red zone, even schools that...

As part of Hearthstone’s upcoming Forged in the Barrens expansion, the studio will add a new mode to its collectible card game that will allow you to play the title as it was back in 2014 when it first came out.  Hearthstone’s Classic format does away with all the cards and keyword effects that have been added to the game since.

    Politicians and political commentators mocked President Biden for a gaffe Tuesday when he said "we didn't have" the COVID-19 vaccine when he came into office. Biden made the slip-up during a CNN town hall with host Anderson Cooper. He had said earlier in the town hall that there were "50 million doses that were available" when he took office, in response to a question about his administration's vaccine rollout. US ADMINISTERING 1.7M COVID-19 VACCINE DOSES DAILY, WHITE HOUSE SAYS "It's one thing about the vaccine – which we didn't have when we came into office – but a vaccinator, you need the needle, you need the mechanisms to be able to get it in," the president said.

    On Tuesday’s “CNN Newsroom,” White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci defended Vice President Kamala Harris’ comments that the Biden administration was “starting from scratch” on coronavirus vaccine distribution by stating that he thinks she was referring to the fact that “the actual plan of getting the vaccine doses into people’s arms was really rather vague.” After quoting Harris’ remarks, host Jim Sciutto asked, “I wonder if you agree with that, that the vaccination plan come January 20 of this year, that you were starting from the beginning there, or there was something in place that just needed improvements?” Fauci responded, “What I think the vice president is referring to is that the actual plan of getting the vaccine doses into people’s arms was really rather vague. I mean, it was not a well-coordinated plan. Getting the vaccines made, getting them shipped through Operation Warp Speed was okay. But...
    Many times the reality surpasses fiction. In this way, the story of Zachary Frankel and Alex Osman seems to be taken from a valentine script: they met thanks to a mutual friend and, Before they got married, they knew they had met long before. On the first date already they discovered they had grown up in the same place, Center City (Philadelphia, United States), who had spent moments of their childhood in the same park (Rittenhouse Square) and that they knew people in common. But none of that set off the couple’s alarms, as they were sure that the two of them they had never crossed paths. Their love story passed in absolute ignorance until time to go live together. In those times of absolute chaos due to the move, Alex’s mother, cleaning up, found a photo apparently normal from when her daughter was alone three years. The...

    (CNN)Nearly three weeks into office, President Joe Biden is trying to do what he knows how to do best -- connect with average Americans, letting them know he understands their suffering and offering words of comfort. But instead of doing so quietly on the campaign trail, he's now using those skills to win a different kind of campaign -- to sell his massive Covid-19 relief package to the American people. In the first installment of a series of weekly addresses to the American people, released by the White House Saturday, Biden's team filmed him calling Michele, a woman from Roseville, California, who lost her job because of the pandemic. He promised that his economic plan is intended to help restore the loss of dignity and purpose that she and so many others have felt over the past year.Biden hasn't made headway with his initial efforts to win bipartisan support for...

    Prince Harry's not happy, it's been reported today. This revelation isn't a massive surprise. The ever-surly Duke of Sussex has looked thoroughly miserable for the past few years as he's waged furious battles against everyone from the media to his own brother and father-in-law. When Harry's not issuing angry statements or suing people, he's hypocritically lecturing us all on things like reducing our carbon footprint while he uses private jets like taxis. And honestly? It's all become very tedious and rather sad. What happened to that cheery, cheeky young guy that everyone loved because he never took life too seriously?

Richardson | The Denver Post | Getty Images It's tempting to tell the world as soon as you receive a coveted Covid shot. But there's reason to rein it in. For starters, sharing a photo of your vaccination card on social media makes you a potential target of identity theft, according to the Better Business Bureau. Not only does the personal information on the card, including your full name and birthday, make you vulnerable to scammers, it also provides all the information they need to create and sell phony cards online. (These cards are often given after vaccine recipients get their first dose.) If you want to post about your vaccine, there are safer ways to...
    Two Republican members of Congress announced plans to introduce a resolution Monday which would prevent prisoners at Guantanamo Bay from getting COVID-19 vaccines before American citizens. Republican Iowa Rep. Ashley Hinson and Republican New York Rep. Elise Stefanik will introduce the resolution, saying that those imprisoned for alleged terrorism crimes should only be able to receive the vaccine after every American has had the chance to, Fox News first reported. “Americans need to get the vaccine before terrorists, and it’s upsetting to me that that even was a question, and I think we need to make sure the administration is held accountable for this and that’s what I think this resolution does,” Hinson told Fox News. “It puts a spotlight on the thinking and the planning that was going on behind this.” Stefanik had similar comments, criticizing President Joe Biden’s administration for offering the vaccine to alleged terrorists before American...

    A new study has come to the surprising conclusion that mask-wearing to protect against the novel coronavirus may actually increase infections. However, a closer look at the data reveals a commonality in the data that scientists believe is the reason behind the findings. According to SciTech Daily, the study was conducted in a joint operation by the state of Vermont and public health researchers at the University of Vermont’s Larner College of Medicine. The scientists followed adults living in the northwestern part of the state and combined their behavior with their COVID-19 test results. By analyzing the two data sets, researchers were able to see what contributed to getting infected. One of the things that had the highest correlation to infection was wearing a mask. The result may be a surprising one, considering that masks are required for many activities, such as entering stores and restaurants. However, scientists suggested that...

    (CNN)Being vaccinated against Covid-19 is morally acceptable, the Vatican deemed, after some anti-abortion groups raised concerns about how the vaccines were manufactured.Some groups had suggested the coronavirus vaccines were made using cells from aborted fetuses. The cells are actually engineered and grown in labs from tissue acquired many decades ago, and are not made directly from aborted fetuses. The Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said in a note approved by Pope Francis on Monday that receiving the shot was morally permitted."It is morally acceptable to receive Covid-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process," the note said.The statement was issued and signed by the head of the Congregation in response to several requests for guidelines regarding the use of the vaccine.Read MoreThere have been some disagreements within the clergy regarding the ethics of taking a Covid-19 vaccine because it...

    Actor Ricky Schroder said he will be present in Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day next month to celebrate with President Trump or to protest against President-elect Joe Biden. "God Willing, on January 20th I will be in Washington DC to Celebrate President Trumps Inauguration," The NYPD Blue star posted on Parler on Thursday. "If not … I will March on the Communist Capitol Inaugural Event to Demand Election Security for 2020 and all future Elections." “Without a trustworthy election system we have no country,” Schroder added.

    On the day that Vice President Mike Pence received the Pfizer vaccine for Covid-19 in a live, televised event, some are curious if President Donald Trump will also publicly receive the vaccine amid a pandemic that has cost over 300,000 American lives. Many Americans have raised questions about the vaccine’s safety, particularly due to its rapid development and testing. This is why Vice President Pence and three former presidents (Clinton, Bush, and Obama) are all scheduled to publicly take the vaccine. There is no particular date set yet for President-elect Joe Biden, but his team has also said he plans to take the vaccine. Dr. Anthony Fauci will also receive the vaccine, as will Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. The Commander in Chief has publicly stated that he did not see a priority for his own vaccination. He has the antibodies, and has pledged that White House staffers will not cut the vaccine recipients’ metaphorical...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell voiced optimism for deals on both general spending and on coronavirus stimulus Tuesday night, after he and other congressional leaders ended their talks for the evening. The lawmakers face a Friday deadline for passing a spending plan to avoid a government shutdown and are also seeking an accord to provide aid – both to small businesses hammered by coronavirus-related disruptions and to millions of Americans who’ve lost their jobs because of the pandemic.

    (CNN)As the world waits for pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and Moderna to deliver their Covid-19 vaccines to cities around the globe, the job of getting millions of doses to some of the most out of-the-way-places in the US presents its own set of unprecedented obstacles. In Sioux Falls, South Dakota, one health care system has spent months preparing for the challenge.Sanford Health System -- which has over 400 clinics and senior care locations, many in small towns and farming communities in the upper Midwest -- has prioritized making sure the vaccines that are delivered are kept safe until they are administered.Jesse Breidenbach, Sanford Health's senior executive director of pharmacy, said that entails keeping the vaccine cold.

    Rudy Giuliani has left hospital following his COVID-19 diagnosis, amid criticism from the medical community that Donald Trump and his pals are getting preferential medical treatment in the nation's fight against the virus. Trump's personal attorney flashed a thumbs-up to reporters and waved as he was driven out of Georgetown University Hospital around 5 p.m. Wednesday, four days after he tested positive. Giuliani, who is 76 putting him in a high-risk category, was admitted to the medical center Sunday.  This came after he traveled across multiple states in the lead-up to his diagnosis, shunning masks and social distancing while he spearheaded Trump's legal battle and made unfounded claims that the presidential election was 'rigged'.  Scores of people could have been infected by the former New York City Mayor and he is now being looked at as a potential superspreader.

    Choosing the window seat could reduce your risk of infection. Nicolas Economou/NurPhoto/Getty The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is strongly urging Americans to stay home this Thanksgiving and celebrate with the people they live with. The CDC warns that "travel may increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. Postponing travel and staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others this year." Though it doesn't recommend traveling, the CDC says that "most viruses and other germs do not spread easily on flights because of how air circulates and is filtered on airplanes." Some experts agree and say that there are certain things you can do to minimize the risk of infection on flights, such as frequent handwashing. Sitting in the window seat can also somewhat reduce your risk of infection by having fewer people in close proximity than you would in other seats....

    New York Yankees News/Rumors: Yankee ace Gerrit Cole will need help getting that World Series ring By: William Parlee November 14, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditHopefully, for New York Yankees fans, this will not be an offseason of discontent.

Some believe this because general manager Brian Cashman did nothing with the club’s needs before the trade deadline. But fear not, this is a different situation with all the free agents. Last year the Yankees went out and spent for the best pitcher in baseball for $324 million over nine years, at which point Cole will be 38 years old and near the end of his career.

    A nasal spray that blocked transmission of the novel coronavirus in ferrets may help prevent humans exposed to the pathogen from becoming sick. Researchers found that a lipopeptide, a type of compound, prevented the virus, known as SARS-CoV-2, from entering and infecting cells.

    The U.S. Postal Service has faced scrutiny for making major operational changes in an election year when many more Americans are mailing their ballots because of the coronavirus pandemic. But new statistics show the USPS is doing a worse job of delivering the mail on time, raising concerns that some ballots may be delayed. The Postal Service said Friday that its on-time delivery rate for first-class mail slipped to 85.6% for the week ended October 16. That's down from nearly 91% over a three-month period ending in June, noted Paul Steidler, senior fellow with the Lexington Institute, a public policy think tank based in Arlington, Virginia. He described the latest data on the USPS' delivery record as "awful." A drop in timely mail delivery could pose a risk for voters who wait to post their mail-in ballots, Steidler said. While it's not known how many voters plan to mail ballots in the...
    In the waning days of a bitterly partisan presidential election amid a global pandemic, there appears to be some significant distance between President Donald Trump and the nation’s top epidemiologist Dr. Anthony Fauci over the national outlook for dealing with Covid-19. According to almost all topic-centric polls, the coronavirus—and how the federal government has handled it—is the most important issue for voters. But while Trump continually says that we’ve “turned the corner” on the potentially deadly contagion that has caused over 220,00 American deaths, Dr. Fauci tells a much more ominous story. In a teleconference interview with the University of Melbourne Professor Shitij Kapur, Dr. Fauci told his mostly Australian audience “I think it will be easily by the end of 2021 and perhaps into the next year before we start having some semblance of normality.” The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the...

Symptoms of SAD can include feeling withdrawn, unengaged, unmotivated, sleeping a lot more than usual and or experiencing weight...

After the debate, Biden was pressed on his comments about climate change when he stated he will “transition away from the oil industry,” to which Trump responded by saying, “Oh, that’s a big statement.” In response to a question from a CNN reporter, Biden said: “Eventually we’re going to have to [get rid of] oil, but we’re not getting rid of fossil fuels. We’re getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels, but we’re not getting rid of fossil fuels for a long time… It will not be gone for … probably 2050,” Fox News reported. Biden was asked by the debate moderator why he would transition away from oil, to which Biden said, “because the oil...
    After the final debate on Thursday night, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was pressed by reporters on his comments about fossil fuels, following his remarks that he plans to "transition from the oil industry." "Eventually we're going to have to [get rid of] oil, but we're not getting rid of fossil fuels. We're getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels, but we're not getting rid of fossil fuels for a long time," Biden said in response to a CNN reporter. "It will not be gone for ... probably 2050." BIDEN-BACKED FRACKING POLICY COULD DERAIL AMERICA'S ECONOMIC RECOVERY The post-debate exchange came as Biden briefly spoke with the press as he walked to his plane. Biden has been consistent through the campaign on his plans to set the United States on a path to zero-emissions by 2050 while not banning fracking in the immediate future. But his framing of that plan ‒ as a commitment to ending fossil fuels in...

The 44-year-old actor and older brother of Kate Hudson opened up on their Sibling Revelry podcast about the work he's had done on his face.  Noting that he'd gotten the popular blood facial, Oliver added that he also agreed to try some botox.  "I went in and I had blood splattered all over my face and they needled it in there and then did a frickin' laser.

    Ashlie D. Stevens October 22, 2020 9:03PM (UTC) As soon as Donald Trump was elected to the presidency in 2016, it seemed that all eyes turned to rural America for answers. I was working at a public radio station in Louisville, Kentucky on election night — a blue dot in a state that has reliably voted Republican since the 1950s — when the results began to roll in. As it became clear that Trump was pulling ahead, my phone began to light up with texts from friends and other journalists who lived in larger cities, most asking the same question: "How could this happen?"  Almost immediately, media members, policymakers, and academics set about trying to contextualize the beliefs of portions of the country that had seemed to fade below notice or were dismissed as "flyover country." America at large sought to understand "rural America," a term that quickly became...

    (CNN)Europe is deep in the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic, and a particularly worrying trend is beginning to emerge: More older people are becoming infected. Over the summer months, the continent saw infection clusters popping up mostly among younger people who were venturing out into bars, restaurants and other public spaces. While that wasn't ideal, it meant the death rate stayed relatively low, since younger people are statistically less vulnerable to the virus and most avoid getting seriously ill.However, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has warned that more older people are now becoming infected. According to the ECDC's latest situation report, at least 13 countries in Europe saw new infection rates among people aged 65 or over rise to what ECDC defines as "high" last week -- between 64 per 100,000 in Croatia and 206 per 100,000 in the Netherlands. Its the worst disaster...
    Democratic South Carolina Senate nominee Jaime Harrison on Wednesday slammed Sen. Lindsey GrahamLindsey Olin GrahamDemocratic Senate campaign arm outraises GOP counterpart in September Hug or heresy? The left's attack on Dianne Feinstein is a sad sign of our times Democrats seem unlikely to move against Feinstein MORE's (R-S.C.) decision to pull out of debate scheduled for Wednesday. “This is probably the most historic Senate race in the history of this state, and to have Senator Graham ducking and dodge [the debate], is really sad, but it's a testament to who he is,” Harrison said on SiriusXM’s “The Laura Coates Show”. “He believes that he represents the interest in Washington, D.C., instead of representing the interests of the people in South Carolina. And that's why he's on the verge of getting that one way ticket back home.” In a statement provided to WYFF, Graham’s campaign said the debate would need to be...

    Nuke Bizzle’s rap career may be about to fizzle after the hip-hop artist who bragged on a track about getting rich by committing unemployment fraud was arrested Friday on federal charges that he ripped off more than $1.2 million in pandemic unemployment assistance. The rapper boasts in a YouTube music video about a scheme to steal unemployment benefits and displays what appears to be dozens of benefits letters and bank cards that he raps paid for his swag. But that fictional tale was true to life, prosecutors for the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles allege. Bizzle, whose real name is Fontrell Antonio Baines, 31, is accused of using a series of stolen identities to fund his lifestyle in the Hollywood Hills, court documents said. A representative for Baines could not be reached for comment. Baines allegedly exploited the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance provision of the CARES Act, which...
    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...

    With NASA getting ready to land a spacecraft on the asteroid Bennu in just a few short days, the mysterious space rock is already revealing some of its secrets, including the presence of carbon-bearing materials. Several studies were published on the matter in the journals Science and Science Advances, noting that carbon-bearing, organic material is “widespread” on the surface of the asteroid. This includes the area where NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft will take its first sample from, known as Nightingale, on Oct. 20. “The abundance of carbon-bearing material is a major scientific triumph for the mission. We are now optimistic that we will collect and return a sample with organic material – a central goal of the OSIRIS-REx mission,” said Dante Lauretta, OSIRIS-REx principal investigator at the University of Arizona in Tucson, in a statement. During the early days of the Solar System, as planets were being formed, debris flew...
