    MANCHESTER UNITED have to sign a striker at the end of the season, according to their former midfielder Mark Hughes. The Welshman also reckons Edinson Cavani of five years ago would have been the perfect solution. 5Mark Hughes urged his old club Man Utd to sign a strikerCredit: PA:Press Association 5Edinson Cavani could leave United in the summerCredit: Getty Images - Getty Jamie Carragher issued a stark warning to the Red Devils saying they 'lack quality up front' and 'need a centre-forward more than anything'. In the aftermath of Carragher's comments, SunSport revealed five strikers United could sign this summer including Harry Kane and Erling Haaland. And Hughes agrees that something needs to be done. He told Sky Sports: "United have got good quality at the top end of the pitch. "Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood are highly thought of, but maybe they need Cavani five years ago when he...
    New Brighton signing Moises Caicedo is one of those few people who can look back on 2020 with immense pleasure. At the start of the year the teenage Ecuadorian was not yet a first choice player with his club, Independiente del Valle. 7Hot prospect Moises Caicedo has signed for Brighton for a bargain £4millionCredit: AFP - Getty 7Box to box midfielder Caicedo is one of the most promising players to come out of South America in recent yearsCredit: Getty Images - Getty By the end he was a full international, fighting and winning midfield battles against the likes of Uruguay and Colombia in World Cup qualification. He was seen as one of the hottest properties in South American football.  It is a fair bet that if he were Brazilian the transfer fee might have been considerably higher than the reported £4 million. Caicedo hurdled every obstacle in style last year....
    Donald Trump's impeachment lawyer has said the former president had 'nothing' to do with the Capitol riot as he warned the trial threatened to tear the country apart and damage American democracy. David Schoen, the Atlanta-based lawyer appointed by Trump on Sunday, will defend him next week in his historic second impeachment trial. On Monday Schoen, who previously represented Jeffrey Epstein, insisted that the trial of a former president was 'unconstitutional'. He argued further that Trump was not to blame for the insurrection on January 6, which killed four people including a Capitol Police officer. David Schoen appeared on Fox News on Monday night to discuss the impeachment trial Schoen said that the storming of the Capitol after Trump's January 6 rally was not his fault Trump, pictured leaving Washington on January 20, urged supporters to march to the Capitol At a 'Stop the Steal' rally on...
    CEDAR HILL, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – On a cool, but sunny afternoon in Cedar Hill, the Alvarado family sorts through a crime scene. “My daughter and I would be excited to look outside and see the cereal was missing or the formula was missing,” explained Franchesca Alvarado. You see, for weeks, their front yard has hosted a neighborhood “blessing box.” “We had a sign that said ‘A Blessing Box – take what you need, leave what you can,'” explained Alvarado. “We’ve all been there, where we’ve struggled. And if we can all come together and just help each other in those difficult moments, people will see God’s love in that and through that.” (Credit: Alvarado Family) The family checked on the box Thursday morning — and it was gone. And not just the food. “Everything was taken! The sign. The cart. The tub,” she said. Franchesca even chased down the garbage...
    Real GDP increased at an annual rate of 4 percent in the fourth quarter of last year. Normally this would be a very respectable growth rate, but in the COVID-19 era it’s kind of meaningless. Here’s a different way of looking at it that tells a more meaningful story: If GDP had continued growing at its rate of the past decade, it would have reached $19.5 trillion last quarter. Instead it ended up at $18.8 trillion, which means we’re $700 billion below where we “should be” in the absence of any pandemic effect. This is the amount we need to make up to get back on our old growth path. It’s also the hole that needs to be filled with additional consumer spending. So how much extra consumer spending do we need to close this gap? We just passed a $900 billion bill and personal savings are still about...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Amid a slew of violence on the subways, a woman says she and her son were beaten so badly in one attack, she’s still afraid to leave the house. “Sometimes I wake up, I see this man crouched in front of me,” the woman said. Those flashbacks still haunt the 55-year-old woman nine days after she and her son were beaten on a moving subway car in Brooklyn. The victim asked CBS2 not to show her face out of fear of retribution. She said a man was asking for money on a 4 train between the Nostrand and Franklin Avenue stations in Crown Heights. That’s when suddenly and randomly, the man attacked. “And he was just beating me, beating me, punching me,” the woman told CBS2’s Nick Caloway. Her 21-year-old son intervened. “The next thing I knew, he punched my son and my son flew back...
    RealClearPolitics co-founder Tom Bevan predicted Thursday that the effort to impeach President Donald Trump would become a problem for the incoming Biden administration and new Democratic majority in Congress as the issue turns into an anchor on their policy agenda. “It’s never going to happen,” Bevan said in an afternoon interview on Fox News, dismissing the possibility that Senate Democrats might win the 17 Republican votes they would require to convict the president. “To get to the number that you’d need to remove him from office, you would have to have a massive shift in terms of the number of senators that would vote for this.” The House on Wednesday voted to impeach Trump on a charge of inciting insurrection, with 10 House Republicans breaking ranks to support the measure. Republican Sens. Mitt Romney (UT), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Pat Toomey (PA), and Ben Sasse (NE) have spoken favorably about removing Trump from office...
    Arnold Schwarzenegger issued an emotional speech Sunday comparing the MAGA riot and Donald Trump's attempted 'coup' to the Nazi takeover of his native Austria. The former California governor, 73, called the murderous riot in the Capitol 'America's Day of Broken Glass,' comparing to Kirstallnacht, the night of mass attacks on Jews in Austria and Germany which presaged the Holocaust. And he condemned Trump as 'the worst president' saying that his elected enablers must be 'held accountable' as he issued a call for unity behind President-elect Joe Biden. Although the former actor has made no secret of his childhood with an abusive father who joined the Nazi party either just before or just after the German takeover of Austria in 1938, he has rarely spoken so emotionally about its impact. Although he named no names, 147 Republican lawmakers - 139 House members and eight senators, led by Ted Cruz and Josh...

    President Donald Trump said during a phone interview on this week’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that he would not change his mind that there was massive fraud in the 2020 election. When asked how he will prove his claims, Trump said, “I’m going to use 125% of my energy to do it. You need a judge that’s willing to hear a case. You need a Supreme Court that’s willing to make a real big decision based on everything.” He added, “It’s not like you’re going to change my mind. In other words, my mind will not change in six months. There was tremendous cheating here. Boxes were brought in. The mail-in vote is a disaster. By the way, if Republicans allow it to happen, you’ll never have another Republican elected in the history of this country at a Senate level or at a presidential level. You’ll never or at the House level....

    A former federal judge whose son was shot dead by a crazed lawyer told NBC Monday that she hopes a new law protecting the personal information of public officials will go expand nationally. “I’m really hoping that we can do the concrete things that need to be done in order to protect my brothers and sisters on the federal bench,” Esther Salas told Savannah Guthrie on Today. Attorney Ron Den Hollander fatally gunned down her son Daniel Anderl and badly injured her husband at their New Brunswick home in July. The disgruntled lawyer later shot himself dead in the Catskills. In response to the shooting, New Jersey officials last week passed “Daniel’s Law” to protect the personal information of public officials “I know that Daniel is looking down and saying, mom, keep it going,” Salas said Monday. “Keep it going because we need to make sure that everyone is safe.”...
    At nearly 16 inches tall and more than 10 inches wide, the PlayStation 5 is a very large video game console. Sizable, some might say. Beefy. But, would you believe it was almost even bigger? Love or hate the design, the PS5’s notable chonk is undeniable. According to designer Yujin Morisawa, in an interview published Monday by the Washington Post, the original drawings depicted an even more colossal device. “I knew it was going to be larger because I know how much power there was going to be,” he said, “so I knew how much air flow you would need and how much space for a heat sink. In the beginning, when I started drawing, it was much larger even though I didn’t know what engineering was going to do. It’s kind of funny that engineering actually told me it’s too big. So, I actually had to shrink it down...

    THE goals Manchester United conceded in midweek to Istanbul Basaksehir were hard to comprehend — especially the first one scored by Demba Ba. I just don’t get it? If I am watching under-12s football and I saw that, I’d have an issue with it. ⚠️ Read our Man United live blog for the latest news from Old Trafford 2Man Utd's defending in Istanbul was shocking and Dominic Calvert-Lewin must be licking his lipsCredit: AP:Associated Press It is incredible — the first thing you are taught as a kid is that if a team leaves a player up, then leave two defenders. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s biggest consistency is their inconsistency — thrashed by Tottenham 6-1, victories against PSG and Leipzig, lose to Arsenal and to Istanbul. As a result, there has been a lot of talk about formations and tactics. I have seen United play three at the back, use...
    I live in a New York City apartment which means space is limited, to say the least. There are some things you don’t need (like the largest size Instant Pot), there are some you definitely need (like cleaning supplies), and there are some things you kinda sorta maybe need, like a printer.. Cut to: me in a panic over how I’m going to print and mail my voter registration. Or that time I needed to file a health insurance claim. Even my job, while mostly online, requires some documents I need to print. If you’ve been reluctant to get a printer, I can’t tell you enough how much of a stress reliever it has been, especially when it’s as great as this one. If I could give out an award for the best work-from-home printer, it’d go to the Canon Pixma TR150 by a mile. What I love about it...
    One of the first female fighter pilots to serve in US Navy revealed she was told to 'go find something girls can do' after she inquired about a career in aviation at school.   Tammie Jo Shults, 58, from New Mexico, spent years trying - and visited seven different recruiters - before she was finally accepted to the Navy's Aviation Officer Candidate School in 1985.  Speaking on the Changes podcast with Annie Mac, she told that after applying for the Air Force, she was told the military 'don't need women pilots', and to 'send her brother' instead.   Despite the adversity she faced, Tammie said she 'decided not to be offended and a victim', as she believed she had the 'raw skill set' necessary to become a fighter pilot, and would keep going until she achieved her goal.  Shults made headlines in 2018 when she safely landed a Southwest Airlines flight after the...
    During an October 9 press conference about COVID-19, Colorado Governor Jared Polis announced that he will extend the statewide order to wear facial coverings in public places for another thirty days; it was set to expire on Monday, October 12. He contextualized the decision by noting that the state is currently experiencing the most problematic data related to the novel coronavirus since July and August. "We need to be better at wearing masks — not because I say to do it or because public-health officials say to do it," Polis allowed. "It's because you care about your health and your family and your neighbors and your job. That's why we're doing it." At the outset of his remarks, Polis revealed that 834 new cases of the virus were reported on the 9th, with the total being similar to counts in recent days. Many of these infections will inevitably translate into...

    Tyler Stanfield wrote his latest single, “Whiskey Heart,” when he was living in Austin, Texas, a few years ago. He says people who aren’t paying attention think it’s a song about drinking. “It’s not,” Stanfield says. “Whiskey is a metaphor. That’s kind of one of the fun things about it is I like to see if people go deeper than just thinking that it’s about getting drunk and doing that kind of thing.” The song is part of an as-yet-unreleased three-track EP and is actually about love, and the overwhelming need for it.

    President Trump admitted that he always wanted to downplay the threat posed by the coronavirus at the beginning of the pandemic despite admitting that it was "deadly stuff," according to one of more than a dozen interviews with the veteran journalist Bob Woodward. On Wednesday, CNN, played one of the recordings from Woodward's interviews with the president for his new book, Rage, which is scheduled to be released on Sept. 15. In the tape, Trump called the virus "deadly stuff" on Feb. 7 and noted that it may be five times "more deadly" than the flu. "I wanted to always play it down," Trump told Woodward during another conversation on March 19, which occurred days after he declared a national emergency. "I still like playing it down because I don't want to create a panic." At the time Trump made these remarks to Woodward, he was making vastly different...
    I’m allergic to wheat, a big believer in organic, and always up for trying the latest nutritional brands. Consequently, I feel like I need to take out a second mortgage every time I go grocery shopping. Health food is expensive, so needless to say, it wasn’t ideal when I got hooked on Kombucha. After a few years of dropping $6 on every 16-ounce bottle, I realized something had to give.  Every year, I participate in a Secret Santa exchange with my partner’s massive family; we all compile wishlists to make it easier on the gift-giver, and this past year, the Kombucha Shop’s Kombucha Starter Kit was the only item on mine. Shocker! I got it — along with some swing-top brewing bottles, because my sister-in-law is awesome — and thus began my home-brewed Kombucha journey. For those who aren’t familiar, Kombucha is a fermented tea that originated in Northeast China...

    (CNN)America was in need of a rallying cry. And on Tuesday, President Donald Trump stepped up to the mic in the Rose Garden of the White House.It had been perhaps America's grimmest day so far in the pandemic. Florida had just recorded its highest daily death toll, and Texas hit a new peak in case diagnoses. More than 136,000 Americans had now died of Covid-19, and officials were warning that the coming autumn and winter could be the "most difficult time" yet.To say Trump failed to deliver the needed solace would be kind. His appearance, ostensibly planned to unveil new punishments for China over its expansion of powers in Hong Kong, went quickly off the rails -- and turned to a rambling rant mostly focused on his rival, presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. On America's tragic day, here's a sample of what was on the President's mind. On Biden's record"So...

    Image(s) by Sara Lynn Paige New research from EWG found traces of the weed-killing chemical glyphosate in multiple samples of non-organic hummus.

    HYDE PARK — After filing more than 40 eviction lawsuits in April, the CEO of a Hyde Park property management company said those in danger of losing their homes hadn’t “clearly” communicated their need for rent relief — despite evidence to the contrary. Though they say they’ve kept their landlord updated on their financial situation for months, two East Hyde Park tenants still are facing an eviction lawsuit, as first reported by the Hyde Park Herald. Hilary Leithauser and Takintayo Akinbiyi were named in one of eight lawsuits filed by TLC Property Management immediately before a statewide evictions ban went into effect. The suit, filed April 22, alleges damages of $1,430 plus court costs to cover April’s rent and fees, according to public records. Emails provided to Block Club show Leithauser first offered documentation of her job situation in late March and continued to update management on her finances,...
    LONE TREE, Colo. (CBS4)– What started as a small idea turned into a large labor of love for one Lone Tree community.

I’m a disabled veteran on a pension and social security, so that’s my only source of income,” Kouns told CBS4’s Mekialaya White. Over time, that income didn’t cover growing expenses for his home which was in desperate need of repairs. His roof was due for a total replacement after several storms impacted the structure, and hail and sun damage peeled off the paint. Thankfully,...

    Officials for a Central Texas agency that advocates for children who have been removed from their home because of abuse or neglect said they need “double the number” of volunteers in order to meet the needs of young victims due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the pandemic, it became challenging for the court system, but also for volunteers of Court Appointed Special Advocates of Central Texas to be able to meet with children and their caregivers. “The challenge for us when it first hit was really, how are we going to maintain contact with these children if we’re not allowed to see them?” said Eloise Hudson of CASA. “How are we going to get information from one caregiver to the other if we can’t see them? Our volunteers are already utilizing things like text messaging and email, but those face-to-face visits are very important.” San Antonio businesses team up with...
    A Washington State University study found that people are more likely to live to 100 if they live in neighborhoods with high levels of walkability.

    (CBS Local)- Laila Ali’s father, Muhammad Ali, is now one of the most revered athlete activists of all-time. As the country continues to come to terms with its history of police brutality and systemic racism, brought to the forefront by the recent protests, Ali is hopeful that the movement will continue to push forward, long after the protests and unrest begins to peter out. “We want to make sure this continues happening because we’ve marched before, we’ve protested before. We’ve been complaining for many years,” said Ali in a conversation with Swin Cash on the latest episode of CBS Sports Network’s We Need To Talk. “I think that, for the first time in history, we’ve seen so many people globally taking a stand for Black people, which is absolutely amazing, but I want people to keep this same energy going forward.” "I grew up watching my father and his activism…even when...

    How is it that we are two weeks into an armed insurrection in Seattle, where local politicians let terrorists take over a police precinct and several city blocks and prevent all city services from entering? How is it that Americans continue to get beaten out of their cars by lynch mobs, and it appears there are no police in sight? Every Republican tells us that re-election of Trump is the most important outcome we can strive for, but he is president right now. He holds the power of the federal government. Are we really at the mercy of local governments ignoring or downright participating in the insurrection? This question was settled long ago. State governments never had the power to violate life, liberty, or property, pursuant to Art. IV, §2, cl. 1 of the Constitution, which prohibited states from violating core natural rights from the very first day of...
    DETROIT (AP) — An ace right-hander and a slugging corner infielder. It’s a combination that’s worked before for the Detroit Tigers — and now they have a couple of prospects they hope can bring competitive baseball back to the Motor City. Detroit drafted Arizona State first baseman Spencer Torkelson with the top pick in Wednesday night’s draft, although the Tigers plan to try him across the diamond at third base.

It makes...
    The ping from the phone, which came in at 9:36 a.m. on the morning of Tuesday, May 26, 2020, woke me up. “Good morning,” began the text from Tony Spencer, a retired St. Paul police officer. “You tracking this video out of Minneapolis from yesterday. Ugly and tragic results.” I had no clue. “What video?” I texted back. He texted moments later a video clip. I then saw what we all have seen — George Floyd dying as a Minneapolis police officer kept his left knee on the handcuffed, face-down, prone 46-year-old man’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds at the corner of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue while bystanders pleaded for Floyd’s life. No words. “The video is disgusting,” texted Spencer, a veteran cop who left the force he loved after calling out and then testifying against fellow cops involved in injuries sustained by Frank Baker of St....
