FORMER TRUMP ADVISER SAYS MCCARTHY ‘HAS TO GO’ OVER LIZ CHENEY IMPEACHMENT VOTE FALLOUT Trump explained that Republicans who follow the 45th president are "following an America First agenda" to "fight for the hardworking men and women.” He also made the case that it’s a “good” thing that many Republicans have broken from the former president over the past several weeks.

    Chocolate is delicious without a doubt, but it is not a food we think of when we have to give examples of healthy food.

    With about 5% of Americans having received two doses of COVID-19 vaccines, many are wondering: Can I finally give — and receive — hugs or host a dinner party? It would be safest to wait until everyone getting together is vaccinated, health experts say. The current approved vaccines both require two shots for them to work most effectively, and full protection may not come until a week or two after the second dose. While scientists are confident that the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines for COVID-19 are 94% to 95% effective in preventing clinically recognizable disease, they don’t yet know whether vaccinated people can be asymptomatic carriers of the virus. “We don’t know yet whether [the vaccine] prevents asymptomatic infection,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S. government’s top infectious diseases expert, said on the “L.A. Times Today” program regarding the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. “So it is conceivable and theoretically possible that...

    You won’t be able to read or send messages from the app until you accept the new terms. February 22, 2021 2 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Two weeks after a new privacy policy was set to take effect, WhatsApp is still scrambling to inform users of their digital rights. The chat service came under fire last month when it warned folks they had until Feb. 8 to agree to planned changes — which deal primarily with businesses using WhatsApp to send and store consumer texts. Poor communication regarding exactly what the update entails prompted backlash about how much personal data is shared with parent company Facebook. WhatsApp later delayed the rollout to May 15, giving people less than three months to accept the terms or find a new messaging platform. In an email to one of...
    WHATSAPP has said it plans to delete the accounts of users who do not accept its controversial new privacy terms. The Facebook-owned chat service has set a deadline of May 15 for the changes, which will be rolled out to users across the globe. 4WhatsApp plans to block users who don't accept its controversial new privacy termsCredit: Alamy The new terms, which first appeared via an in-app alert last month, sparked mass panic on social media and led to a mass exodus to rival chat apps. Millions jumped ship amid fears over their privacy after it was revealed that the agreement permitted the app to share more data with Facebook. WhatsApp initially handed users a cutoff of February 8 to agree to the terms but pushed that back to May following fierce criticism online. Now, an official email seen by TechCrunch has revealed what users who shun the new policy...
    WhatsApp has detailed what will happen to users who don’t accept its new privacy policy in an FAQ on its website. Starting May 15th, its functionality will become more limited, and users will no longer be able to send or read messages from the app. They’ll still be able to receive calls and notifications, but this will only be possible for a “short time.” Speaking to TechCrunch, the company confirmed this period will last a few weeks. The new privacy policy has been controversial among some users, who worry that it allows WhatsApp to share their private messages with its parent company Facebook. However, messages between individuals on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted, so only their recipients can see their contents. What the new privacy policy relates to is messages sent to businesses, which may be stored on Facebook servers and whose data may be used for advertising. WhatsApp has shared...
    About a month and a half ago it started the latest controversy related to WhatsApp. At the beginning of January the company began to display a message informing its users of changes in the data transfer policy to Facebook. Although these changes will not be applied in the European Union and the United Kingdom, and in addition the company has insisted several by active and passive that there has been a problem in communication, and that there will not really be any data transfer between WhatsApp and Facebook, Reactions to the contrary occurred very quickly, both in the form of users making the leap to other services and countries pressing against change. As a result, WhatsApp decided to delay their application for three months, a time that it said it would dedicate to communicate adequately what these changes translate into or, to be more exact, to clarify that the privacy...
    Your teeth may decay and even fall out if you don't treat a cavity. Eric Raptosh Photography/Getty Images If you don't treat a cavity, the decay will penetrate your enamel and then keep going deeper to the root of your tooth.

Visit Insider's Health Reference library for more advice. Tooth cavities are a common dental problem that can typically be resolved with a simple dental procedure, like a filling.

    Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) blasted the establishment media on Wednesday after they continued to question him on maskless Super Bowl celebrations, noting that his critics are selective, only seeming to care about proper masking if the violators are people they “don’t like.” “You guys really love that. You don’t care as much if it’s a ‘peaceful protest.'” Then it’s fine,” DeSantis told reporters on Wednesday. “You don’t care as much if they’re celebrating a Biden election. You only care about it if it’s people you don’t like.” “I’m a Bucs fan. I’m damn proud of what they did on Sunday night,” he added: DeSantis’s claim of selective outrage from members of the establishment media holds true, as Democrat officials largely praised — and in some cases participated in — the mass protests that dominated U.S. cities last year following the death of George Floyd. Similarly, Democrats flocked to the...
    People who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and don’t have any symptoms don’t have to quarantine if they’re exposed to someone with the disease, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in new guidelines released today. They should still follow other public health guidelines, like wearing a mask. Someone is considered fully vaccinated if it has been more than two weeks since they’ve received the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or a dose of a single-dose vaccine. As far as selling points for getting vaccinated go, “you won’t have to quarantine after a COVID exposure anymore” might be a pretty strong one https://t.co/RODB8pyNL5 — Ed MD (@notdred) February 10, 2021 Even the best vaccines aren’t perfect protection against COVID-19. The Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines, the two authorized in the United States so far, are around 95 percent effective at protecting from symptomatic disease. That...
    CNN anchor Don Lemon said Tuesday on his show “Tonight” that those who stand with former President Donald Trump can not tell others to respect the police. After playing the video of the deadly Capitol riot presented by today the House impeachment managers, Lemon said, “Blue Lives Matter, huh? Law and order, law and order, respect the flags, respect law enforcement. Why don’t you just comply? Don’t you dare even say that again if you can stand by after that video and give Donald Trump, of all people, Donald Trump…and his mob a pass.

    Is the COVID-19 vaccine effective if you don’t experience a reaction after receiving it?  The two coronavirus vaccines have seen emergency approval in the U.S. — one developed by Pfizer-BioNTech and the other by Moderna — may cause side effects after they’re administered, such as pain and swelling at the injection site, and/or fever, chills and headache, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Since vaccination initiatives began, many patients have reported experiencing so-called "COVID arm" after receiving the jab, while others hoping to avoid any unpleasant side effects have been warned not to take over-the-counter pain relievers beforehand, as experts are concerned that doing so could impact the vaccines’ effectiveness.  Even the nation’s nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said he was "knocked out" for about a day after receiving the second dose of the Moderna vaccine.  GETTING THE COVID-19 VACCINE?

    Sometimes it is difficult to pay the credit cards or the loans that the bank or some financial institution has made. When making the payments again, the default interest has already increased enough, so much that the money may not be available to cover the required amount. Collection offices put pressure on the debtor to recover the money that was loaned to him plus the surcharges. The employees of these offices exert a lot of pressure when they make the collections, so much so that they even threaten the debtor with putting him in jail if he does not cover his debt, but it is impossible for debtors to go to jail for not paying what they owe. Liens are not served by phone, only by court order. Photo: Pixabay. These payment delays and the inevitable allegations with the collectors will not conclude with the debtor’s confinement in...

    CNN’s Dana Bash spoke Sunday with Senator Rob Portman (R- OH), who recently announced his retirement, about the ongoing negotiations over covid relief and on his voting with the vast majority of Republican senators on the issue of the constitutionality of a impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump. “Do you consider Trump’s actions leading up to and on January 6th to be impeachable conduct? Yes or no?” Bash asked. Portman said the earlier vote was “not about dismissing the trial” but about “discussing the constitutionality.” He added, “I have said with regard to the president’s comments that day that they were partly responsible for what happened, for the horrible violence that occurred on Capitol Hill. I’ve also said that what he did was wrong and inexcusable. I’ve used the word inexcusable because that’s how I feel.” Bash picked up on that to ask, “If you don’t vote yes, aren’t...

    Apple's flagship smartphone, the iPhone 12, can interfere with pacemakers and other medical devices, the company has quietly confirmed.  The firm's latest devices feature a technology called MagSafe, which uses in-built magnets to firmly attach accessories like wireless chargers and wallets to the back of the phones.    iPhone 12 devices, released in October last year, also contain components and radios that emit electromagnetic fields.   Apple has admitted that these magnets and electromagnetic fields might interfere with medical devices and should be kept at least six inches away.  The tech giant's all-important update may be in response to a recent research paper that highlights the iPhone 12's ability to 'potentially inhibit lifesaving therapy in a patient' with an implanted medical device.  This makes the iPhone 12 particularly dangerous if kept in the breast pocket of someone fitted with a pacemaker.  iPhone 12 with the £40 MagSafe Charger. The firm's brand...

    Imagine for a moment that Donald Trump had won the US election last month? I don't mean won it in the increasingly absurd way HE thinks he won it – i.e. that Joe Biden's entirely legitimate victory was invalid because uncorroborated 'mass voter fraud' made it a 'rigged' and 'stolen' election. Only a bonkers conspiracy theorist actually thinks that, someone like the President himself whose pathetic elongated temper tantrum is turning into the most unedifying episode of The Biggest Loser ever aired. No, I mean imagine if Trump had actually won fair and square and was now preparing to be inaugurated for his second term of office? Then imagine that his victory was quite narrow, like Biden's, and came down to a few thousand votes in the swing states? And then imagine that just before the election, a major US newspaper had published an explosive story about his son Donald...
    17-year-old diagnosed with COVID-19 after school required her to take SAT in person Bipartisan coalition releases details of $908B coronavirus package Here’s how to tell if you should stop saving for retirement if you’re struggling financially right now Although unemployment rates have fallen from their highs earlier this year, many Americans are still looking for work or struggling with reduced hours. A recent survey of over 2,000 Americans found that about half, 49%, had a reduction in income.  © Provided by CNBC The most immediate way to offset a smaller paycheck (or in some cases, no pay) is to reduce your spending. For some, that may mean cutting back or even completely stopping contributions to retirement accounts such as your 401(k).  Load Error But before you alter your 401(k) contributions, you should carefully evaluate your individual situation, certified financial planner Eric Roberge says.

    Vials with Covid-19 Vaccine stickers attached and medical syringe with the US pharmaceutical company Pfizer and BioNTech German biotechnology company logos.Vincent Kalut | Photonews | Getty Images The country's first Covid vaccine could be authorized for emergency use as soon as Thursday. If Pfizer and BioNTech get the green light, distribution is set to begin within days. But as difficult as the research, development and distribution stages have been, some experts argue the hardest part of fighting the virus is actually what comes next: convincing the U.S. population to take the vaccine. Roughly four in ten Americans say they would "definitely" or "probably" not get a vaccine, according to a recent survey by the Pew Research Center. While this is higher than it was two months ago, to achieve herd immunity, experts say that about 70% of the population needs to be vaccinated or have natural antibodies.  Employers, however, may...
    President Trump urged his supporters to vote for Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue to prevent the "socialists" and "communists" from gaining control of the U.S. Senate. "There's never been a case where a state has had this prominence on Senate races. Never together, and this is something that's very important and you have to get out and you have to vote," Trump said at a rally in Valdosta, Ga., on Saturday. "If you don't vote, the socialists and the communists win."

    SAVANNAH, Georgia — Vice President Mike Pence warned at a rally Friday for Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler that Georgians who refrain from voting in the upcoming Senate runoff election would be handing a win to Democrats. Pence said at the rally, “I know we’ve all got our doubts about the last election, and I actually hear some people saying, ‘Just don’t vote’” — a comment that comes after attorneys Sidney Powell and Lin Wood told people this week not to vote in the upcoming runoffs because of allegations that voter fraud occurred in the presidential election. “My fellow Americans, if you don’t vote, they win,” Pence said to the crowd of several hundred. “If you don’t vote, there could be nothing to stop Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi from cutting our military, raising taxes, passing the agenda to the radical left.” If the Democrats win both Georgia seats and Joe...
    Vice President Mike Pence aired President Trump's grievances about potential electoral fraud while urging Georgia Republicans to vote in the state's critical Senate runoff elections. Georgia Republicans have been nervous that Trump allies, such as lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, discouraging people from voting could suppress GOP turnout in the races that will determine Senate control in the next Congress. Pence addressed the concerns head-on Friday during a rally in Savannah. "I know we all have our doubts about the last election. In fact, some people say, 'Just don't vote.' My fellow Americans, if you don't vote, they win," he said. But he, like Wood and Powell, also supported Trump's claims that there was fraud in the election against President-elect Joe Biden. He warned Georgia officials that Trump's team was "on it this time" and were "watching," so voters could have confidence in their ballots. "As our...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The race to a COVID-19 vaccine is both part solution and potential dilemma for those opposed to immunizations because according to the law, employers can require it. “Unless you have a disability or sincerely held religious beliefs, the employer can force you to take it,” says Rogge Dunn a Dallas Labor & Employment Attorney. “And if you don’t take it, they can fire you.” Dunn says the law is clear, and yet acknowledges that the controversy surrounding vaccinations will create a challenge for employers. “I think there’s going to be a tension between those who say everybody, all employees should be vaccinated, and other employees say this is a freedom of choice issue,” says Dunn. “I think you’re going to see employees lose their jobs over this.

    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Laura Ingraham expressed her pessimism about the prospects of the 2020 presidential election going in Donald Trump’s favor. Ingraham also disputed any notion that saying it was likely Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden would be sworn in was a departure from conservatism. “[U]nless the legal situation changes in a dramatic and unlikely manner, Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20. Now, to say this does not mean I don’t think that the selection was rife with problems and potential fraud. And to say this does not constitute being a sellout to the conservative populist movement that I’ve been fighting for, I don’t know, 25 years. And it does not mean that I disagree all with the President’s right and obligation to pursue all legitimate legal challenges to this outcome.

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson opened his Wednesday program with a monologue about the hypocrisy of California elected officials, especially Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA), who have held the public to account when it comes to obeying measures put in place under COVID-19. However, as Carlson pointed out, Newsom, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have not obeyed those rules. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Sometimes a single picture so perfectly crystallizes a moment that you want to hang it in a museum as a testament to history. Dorothea Lange’s photographs of migrant farmworkers in the 1930s are like that. They captured the suffering of the Great Depression more powerfully than any government report ever could. The image of the second flag-raising over Iwo Jima was so powerful that we cast it in bronze to commemorate the grit and courage of our Marines in the Second World War....
    SAN FRANCISCO —  Determined to travel for Thanksgiving? Doing so increases your risk of being exposed to the coronavirus and of possibly spreading it to others, experts warn. Nonetheless, millions of Americans are expected to take to the skies for the holiday. Although it marks a 48% decline from last year, AAA estimates that 2.4 million Americans will still travel by air for Thanksgiving. An additional 48 million people will travel by car, a 4% drop. Health officials across the country are urging people to avoid nonessential travel. “We’re actually recommending this Thanksgiving be a stay-at-home Thanksgiving,” said Barbara Ferrer, the L.A. County director of public health. “If you are going to travel, we do ask when you come back that you quarantine for 14 days.” Gov. Gavin Newsom echoed that plea on Friday, urging Californians to not travel out of state and to quarantine if they do. “Travel...
    Nancy Reagan tried to cover up her use of an astrologer who dictated White House policy by telling the clairvoyant: 'Lie if you have to, just lie'. The former First Lady told Joan Quigley in their final conversation that 'you can't say anything', a new documentary reveals. Nancy was furious after her husband's chief of staff Don Regan told about Quigley's role in an explosive memoir and called her the Reagan administration's 'most closely guarded secret'. He revealed Nancy would call Quigley up to eight times a day and without her say so Air Force One would not take off or land. Quigley told the Reagans when to sign treaties and even though she only met the President once she claimed to completely understand his 'almost magical inner will'. She even said she helped to end the Cold War by reading the horoscope of Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev and advising...

    Republicans focus on campaigns; Democrats focus on elections. While that difference may seem minor, even semantic, it’s one of the great differences in American politics — and largely explains what we are now living through. If you prioritize campaigns, you want a candidate who draws great crowds, gets people excited, and has an attractive policy platform. But if you prioritize elections, you want to build a machine that wins the elections — the candidate is secondary at best. And that’s what Democrats have been doing methodically. While former Vice President Joe Biden was hiding in his basement, Democrats were building a machine to win no matter what, able to adapt to this year’s massive surge in voting by mail.

    They go by a few names – emergency bag, go-bag, bugout bag, survival kit, and so on – but whatever name you call an emergency survival bag, I call owning one a good idea. In the event of an emergency that necessitates you fleeing your home, having a bugout bag close at hand could be the difference between a few days of serious unpleasantness and a few days where you have the food, water, basic first aid, and shelter you need to get through OK. (And not to hammer too hard on this, but we could even be talking life or death, so if you’re on the fence about buying one… y’know….) Bugout bags are essential when a sudden disaster strikes, and especially one that cripples local emergency response capabilities, like wildfires, tornadoes, earthquakes and the like. At other times, as with hurricanes, for example, you see the trouble coming...

    Terry H. Schwadron November 3, 2020 8:17AM (UTC) Read more articles from the DCReport here. OK, Donald Trump is insisting that "The Election should END on November 3," even willing to slap the Supreme Court justices around, including his own appointees, for allowing the count to continue for nine days in North Carolina. Of course, the voting will stop tomorrow, just as he wants. : It's the count of late-arriving mail ballots that will continue. The rulings in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and elsewhere concern the count, not the vote. Only ballots postmarked by tomorrow night will be eligible to count. In a 3 a.m. tweet, Trump, who has moved beyond his predictions of widespread fraud from mail ballots, argued that "This decision is CRAZY and so bad for our Country. Can you imagine what will happen during that nine-day period. The Election should END on November 3rd." Actually, what...

One of the founders of linguistics, he is also an American dissident who has wrestled with systems of power on matters no less important than genocide, war and poverty, creating a corpus of classics, ranging from his manifesto against the Vietnam War, "American Power and the New Mandarins," to his amplification of reason against a jingoistic cacophony following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, "9-11."

    CNN anchor Don Lemon criticized Ice Cube for his involvement with President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, causing the rapper to lash out on Twitter and issue a challenge to meet on Lemon’s show. Lemon opened Friday night’s edition of CNN Tonight by bantering with colleague Chris Cuomo about a just-concluded interview with the rap and film star, who has been facing intense criticism ever since the Trump campaign announced — with his permission — that the rapper advised them on President Donald Trump’s “Platinum Plan” for Black America. Lemon couched his criticism in respectful terms, telling Cuomo  “I don’t want to disrespect him, he’s very accomplished, I’ve only met him a few times, nice guy.” “But one needs to know what one is talking about,” he continued. “One needs to educate oneself on just what is, other than the basics about capital, which is important, about voting, which is...
    ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) – According to a YouGov poll, a third of females and a quarter of males have been called ‘crazy’ or ‘insane’ in a serious manner by a romantic partner.

However, 75 percent of Americans have never heard the term before! We’ll share what to do if you think you’re a victim of gaslighting. “You’re imagining things. I didn’t say that!” “You don’t know anything about money.” “You’re being so sensitive.” These are common phrases of gaslighting, which is manipulating someone by having them question their thoughts, memories, and current events, so much so that they question their own sanity. “It made me question who I was and what was going on within me,” said Mary Mitchell....
    Suze Orman learned the hard way to put health before wealth. The celebrity financial adviser has long preached about taking action to conquer fear, especially when it comes to money. But she admits in a new interview that she put off addressing some troubling health symptoms over the past year — and that almost cost her dearly. “I’ve been the one that says ‘stand in your truth, don’t deny something when it comes to your money’,” she said in a “Today” show interview on Thursday. “Well, money means nothing if you don’t have your health.” Orman, 69, was rushed into an emergency 12-hour surgery in July to remove a non-cancerous tumor that was cutting off 80% of her spinal cord.

    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...
    So you think you’re financially astute? Then try taking the following financial literacy test containing just three basic questions about interest rates, inflation and diversification. Despite being quite elementary, only 34% of adults aged 38 to 64 are able to answer all three correctly. Among millennials this percentage is just 16%. Those results are sobering enough. But what’s even more striking is the disconnect between these low scores and investors’ self-perception. More than 71% of older adults rate themselves as having “high financial knowledge.” The comparable percentage among millennials is only slightly lower at 62%. These results are reported in a just-published study, “Millennials and money: Financial preparedness and money management practices before COVID-19.” Its authors, all affiliated with the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center at George Washington University, are Annamaria Lusardi (the Center’s founder and director), Andrea Hasler, and Andrea Bolognesi.

    By JOHN LEICESTER and HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Sports Writers PARIS (AP) — For eight long years, Zhang Shuai and Grand Slam tennis simply weren’t friends. From a 2008 debut at Flushing Meadows, to Roland Garros two years later, and then onward to the full four-stop grind that includes Melbourne Park and the All England Club, the road always stopped in the same place for her: a loss in the first round. She had an uninterrupted streak of 14 quick-as-can-be exits, from 2008 to 2015 — and during the same period that another Chinese player, Li Na, was becoming a star, winning the 2011 French Open and the 2014 Australian Open, exploits that fed a tennis boom among their country's growing middle class. But Zhang is still at it, at age 31, and the latest reward for her if-you-don’t-succeed-try-again persistence is a debut appearance in the fourth round of the French...
    cglow Drinking coffee before breakfast after a poor night's sleep could disrupt your metabolism, according to a small new study. Researchers found that participants who drank coffee right after a night of disrupted sleep had 50% higher blood sugar response at breakfast, compared to those who slept normally.  Eating breakfast first could help people avoid spikes in blood sugar, in which case one night of bad sleep may have fewer negative effects on metabolism, researchers concluded.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. If you're like many people who rely on coffee for a jolt of energy in the morning, your first move after a poor night's sleep is to reach for a mug of strong brew.  But doing so could have negative consequences later that day.  Drinking coffee before breakfast after sleeping badly may disrupt blood sugar control, according to a study published June 1 in the British...

    Most of us have a 'secret' thing that does it for us sexually. But, for some people, their 'thing' is more than a 'thing': it's a sex fetish they're too ashamed to 'fess up to. Lots are so good at keeping it hidden, their partner often has no idea. If this strikes fear in your heart, you're not alone – few of us like the thought that our partner keeps sexual secrets. But lots of people with sexual fetishes, manage them perfectly well solo. They'll use porn based on the theme and feel satisfied.  Others would love acceptance but don't necessarily want to do it with you (a partner who wears your knickers or stockings when you aren't around, for instance). It's how someone wants to fulfil their fetish or kink that determines whether it becomes an issue in your relationship. It's when they can't indulge it solo, or don't...
    Q: I was reading about the benefits of FasTrak and it made me wonder why people have a problem with getting a transponder. We got FasTrak in 2002 when my son attended college in San Mateo and he needed to drive over the San Mateo Bridge. My mother, now 96, had it before we did, as she was in SoCal and traveled on toll roads to visit friends. We got the switchable version of FasTrak a couple of years ago in order to periodically take advantage of toll lanes (we don’t use them often, but when needed, they come in handy). I have it tied to my credit card, so I get a statement each month with details about the charges. It auto-renews, so the account always has a balance of about $20, no matter how much or how little we have used it that month. It is very convenient....

'Let this moment radicalize you,' Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat, said in a 40-minute Instagram Live video posted late on Friday, which was viewed by more than 1.5 million people within 12 hours.  'Let this moment really put everything into stark focus, because this election has always been about the fight of and for our lives. And if anything, tonight is making that more clear to more people than ever before,' she continued. 'It's earth-shattering, this kind of vacancy,' she said of the spot now open on the nation's highest court, which opens a path for President Donald Trump to nominate a replacement for the liberal justice with the presidential election just weeks away.
    Former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka has reiterated his disgust over NFL players who protest during the national anthem, telling them if they don’t like the U.S.A., they should “go to another country.” In an interview on Newsmax TV on Monday, the Hall of Fame coach once again wagged his finger at the “privileged” players who have become incredibly wealthy playing football. “Football’s football. It’s not a complicated thing. You’re playing the game, you’re enjoying the game. You don’t like the game, get out of it,” Ditka told host Shaun Kraisman.

    Hall of Fame NFL coach Mike Ditka doubled down on his stance against protests during the National Anthem, once again telling players to “go to another country” if they don’t like the United States. Speaking with Newsmax TV on Monday, the former Chicago Bears coach said that playing professional football is an incredible “privilege” that few enjoy. “Football’s football. It’s not a complicated thing. You’re playing the game, you’re enjoying the game. You don’t like the game, get out of it,” Ditka said. “It’s not for protesting one way or the other. What color you are, what you think, this or that. You play football. That’s it. You’re privileged. You got a gift from God that you can play the game because you got a body you can do it with. I don’t really understand what you’re protesting. I played the game. I coached the game for a long time....
    Back in 2016 when quarterback Colin Kaepernick started protesting racial inequality during the national anthem, Hall of Fame coach Mike Ditka said he should “get the hell out” of the country because he thought that it was a form of disrespect. Just a few short months ago when George Floyd and Breonna Taylor were both victims of police brutality, Ditka once again reiterated in July that athletes who are protesting the anthem should “get the hell out” of the United States. And following this week’s NFL games, for a third time Ditka spoke out on the players who knelt during the anthem. STEELERS PLAYERS STAND FOR NATIONAL ANTHEM, HOLD BANNER BEFORE GAME VS.

    I didn't think I would see anything as sickening this year as the appalling killing of George Floyd at the kneed of a callous police officer. But I was wrong. The grainy video of a disgusting coward sneaking up to shoot two deputy sheriffs in Compton, Los Angeles as they sat in their patrol car was just as repulsive and disturbing. There was no warning, and no provocation. This was just a deliberate, pre-meditated attempt at a cold-blooded execution. The shooter clearly intended to kill his targets as he fired a number of rounds from his pistol at point blank range into their car before running off. Fortunately, as I write this column, he appears to have failed in his mission as both deputies are reported to have miraculously survived the ambush, although they were seriously injured.  Video released by the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department shows the moment that...
    Let’s fast-forward a few weeks. The Nov. 3 presidential election has occurred, and you know the result. You’re not happy. In fact, you’re fed up. You’re so upset that you’re thinking of leaving the United States. You’re not ready to renounce your citizenship. It’s not like you’re forsaking America forever. You’re just unable to tolerate the next four years—and you want to relocate to preserve your fraying sanity. So where do you go? Setting aside the uncertainty of trying to move abroad in a global pandemic, where borders can close quickly and rules change by the day, let’s consider three questions: • What countries welcome Americans? • What criteria should you use to decide where to go? • What hassles might arise? As a general rule, the more America-like the country, the less it wants Americans. “It’s more difficult to move to the U.K. or Canada or New Zealand than...

    VIDEO1:5001:50Cramer to investors with cash: 'If you haven't bought anything, maybe you dip your toe in'Squawk on the Street Investors who have cash might want to consider putting some to work after a recent pullback in the stock market, CNBC's Jim Cramer advised Wednesday.  "If you haven't bought anything, maybe you dip your toe in," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street," while noting he has for weeks been advising people to sell and lock-in profits on certain soaring technology stocks.  Cramer's comments came as U.S. stock futures were higher Wednesday, following a three-day decline in tech that helped pushed the Nasdaq down 10% into correction territory as of Tuesday's close. Some of the market's strongest performers this year, such as Apple, Tesla and Zoom, were all ensnared in Tuesday's sell-off but rebounded with the broader market Wednesday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up nearly 2% in late morning trading.

    Many of the social and political gains made in the 1960s by the Civil Rights Movement and other social and environmental justice movements, although limited, were important. They have been set back by the politics of the succeeding years. However, the resurgence of social activism in the last several months, launched by the brutal murders of Black men and women at the hands of vigilantes and police is reason to at least be cautiously hopeful. Today’s social activism is broader and deeper than it was in the Civil Rights Movement era. Today’s protesters are of all ages, sexual identities and races, and come from hundreds of cities and towns across the country. Social media allows people to repeatedly watch the all-too-frequent police violence. Massive unemployment as well as teleworking, wrought by COVID-19, gives people time to demonstrate against it. My involvement in the Civil Rights Movement began in...
    Former Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell ripped into journalists on Friday during a briefing on an economic deal between Kosovo and Serbia when reporters asked instead about other topics -- suggesting the topic was “too complicated” for them. "I don't know if you can find it on a map, but this is atrocious. I have to tell you guys,” Grenell said at a White House briefing. TRUMP OVERSEES ECONOMIC DEAL THAT INCLUDES KOSOVO RECOGNIZING ISRAEL, SERBIA MOVING EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM Grenell, who served as special envoy for the talks, was speaking to journalists about the deal to normalize economic relations between the two former adversaries.

The deal normalizes relations between the two on...
    I’ve been married for 30 years to the same man. I have dealt with his tantrums, his screaming, and his fits. He’s always had anger management issues. He strangled me once a few months after our son was born and never did it again. I would have left otherwise. He’s had relationships with other women, but always swore it was just online. Then, a few years back, I got into an online relationship with someone. I never actually met this person, just as my husband claimed he’d never met the women he was talking to online. I had opened up to this person about our troubles, and I talked about my husband’s anger issues and some other private things. This person encouraged me to have an affair but I kept putting him off. Finally, I told him I did it, I had an affair, it was great, etc. It...

Kim Reynolds on Wednesday defended Iowa State University's decision to host a football game in its stadium where 25,000 fans are expected to attend — even as coronavirus cases climb in the state — advising people who may be concerned to not go.  "If you have underlying conditions and you're part of a vulnerable population, maybe I wouldn't go to the Iowa State football game next week," Reynolds said during a press briefing when asked whether it's safe to host thousands of fans in the stands for the university's home opener.  Iowa has seen a recent surge in Covid-19 cases as university students return to the state. Over the last week, Reynolds said 12.1% of...
