Barça plays a game without end, without extra time or penalties and without the possibility of coming back, also without its fans, closed as the stands of the always vindictive Camp Nou are.

    Without me, you're nothing. It’s Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) time, and Sen. Ted Cruz is knocking them dead—both metaphorically and literally—with jokes about how wearing a mask during a pandemic is “dumb.” But just because Cruz took time out to scoff at the pandemic, make fun of Bernie Sanders’ mittens, and throw in the requisite lies about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t mean anyone at the “conservative” conference has taken their eye off the Big Lie. That’s still going strong. As the Associated Press reports, Republican officials across the nation continue to spread divisiveness and encourage violence by pushing disinformation and conspiracies that mimic, or exceed, the claims that drove the deadly Jan. 6 insurgency. Meanwhile, the vaunted algorithms behind social media are driving the evolution of these conspiracies by selectively elevating the most outrageous—and most threatening—lies. Not only are Republicans failing to condemn the assault on the Capitol; in increasing numbers, they’re supporting it....

    Exercising for just two-and-a-half hours a week can reduce your risk of migraine, a new study suggests.Researchers at a headache clinic at the University of Washington looked into the amount of exercise achieved per week by patients diagnosed with migraine. They found exercising above the two-and-a-half hour threshold – the minimum recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) – reduced migraine triggers like anxiety and poor-quality sleep.

    Online marketplace Etsy has been slammed by the Auschwitz Memorial for allowing the sale of 'disrespectful' Camp Auschwitz T-shirts.  The organisation condemned the £19.95 top, which was being sold by a US based seller to buyers in the UK but has now been removed.  The T-shirt featured a skull and crossbones with the phrase 'Camp Auschwitz' emblazoned on the front.

    You may have noticed we often make fun of California on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," but we're not really joking.  California matters, and not just because it's our biggest state. What happens there is, at some point, almost certain to happen where you live. Find a national trend that didn't begin in California. There may be some, but there aren't many. If you want to know the future, or if you want to prevent it, look west. With that in mind, here's the bottom line: California is falling apart. Over the course of the last several decades, California has gone from one of the richest places in the world to the poorest state in our country. More than a third of its population hovers around the poverty line. Even before COVID, more than four million Californians were collecting food stamps. More than 150,000 people in California are homeless. They're living on the streets, in parks, under overpasses,...

At first, she believed the stubborn pimple that refused to disappear after weeks was the result of hormonal issues.  The teen gave birth to a baby boy last year and was no stranger to the skin issues puberty and pregnancy can cause.  Eventually she'd had enough and squeezed the spot. Just days later the area became painful and began to swell. She described the swelling as spreading across her face 'like a balloon inflating' and how the lump has reached the corners of her eyes and was...

    Some draft misses are better known than others.  Michael Jordan, you might have heard a time or two (thousand), was passed over by the Trail Blazers so they could pick big man Sam Bowie with the No. 2 pick. But that mistake in player evaluation is only one of hundreds that have shaped the NBA Draft, and those mistakes have shaped the future of the league every bit as much as much as the smart picks have. What if the Nets picked Scottie Pippen instead of Dennis Hopson in 1987? What if the Clippers had picked pretty much anyone other than Michael Olowokandi at No. 1 in 1998?

    Week 9 was wild and unpredictable. The Dolphins and Cardinals had a riveting battle in the desert, with Tua Tagovailoa and Kyler Murray showing why they could be stars for years to come. The scrappy Panthers almost upset the Super Bowl champion Chiefs. Even the cellar-dwelling Jaguars and Texans turned in an entertaining matchup, with Jacksonville’s sixth-round rookie QB Jake Luton looking solid in a way almost nobody could have predicted.

At Bellator 249 Saad Awad wanted to right his career after going 0-3 in 2019, and 0-4 in his last four fights. The hope was that he’d be able to do so against Mandel Nallo, a rising prospect in Bellator’s lightweight division. Nallo, known for his finishes, tried to make Awad finish number six but ended up stopping the fight accidentally with a low-blow.

    Applying heat can help relax muscles and ease period cramps. PeopleImages/Getty Images The best home remedies for period cramps include trying to reduce stress, exercising, applying heat, and avoiding unhealthy foods.

Stress can also worsen menstrual cramps, so doing stress-relieving exercises like meditation or yoga can help with period relief. This article was medically reviewed by G.

    (CNN)Democratic South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn got right to the point when asked about Attorney General William Barr's comment on Wednesday that lockdowns to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus were the "greatest intrusion on civil liberties" in US history "other than slavery."Speaking with CNN's John Berman on "New Day," the House majority whip distilled the absurdity at the heart of Barr's words."I think that that statement by Mr. Barr was the most ridiculous, tone-deaf, God-awful thing I've ever heard," Clyburn, long-time Black leader from South Carolina, said on Thursday. "It is incredible, as chief law enforcement officer in this country, to equate human bondage to expert advice to save lives. Slavery was not about saving lives. It was about devaluing lives."Slavery was not about saving lives. It was about devaluing lives. For hundreds of years, enslaved Africans were beaten, tortured, raped and treated as property.

    Statues of unemployed men standing in a unemployment line during the Great Depression at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, DC. Twenty-five weeks ago, the nation’s state employment offices began seeing a tsunami of applications for unemployment insurance payments that has yet to subside. According to the Department of Labor, for the week ending Sept. 5, another 1.7 million new applicants—90,000 more than the previous week—sought jobless aid from the program New Deal Democrats instituted 85 years ago and that Republicans have been trying to kneecap or dismantle ever since. As has been the case for weeks, media headlines (and sometimes their stories) only counted the 884,000 new applicants for regular state programs and not the 839,000 who applied for Pandemic Unemployment Insurance that covers gig workers and free-lancers ineligible for regular benefits. In the GOP view, unemployment assistance is the cradle of laziness. As if the program encourages people to become layabouts and eat Cheetos in front of Netflix all day instead of hunting...

    Now that it’s done, now that the NCAA has granted the University of St. Thomas unprecedented approval to go directly from Division III to Division I, a rumor persists that St. Thomas officials somehow orchestrated all 15 months of drama themselves. No one will speak of this on the record, naturally, but here’s the gist of it: Some folks who follow Minnesota college athletics claim UST planned to go D1 long before the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) sought to kick them out. The Tommies cleverly manipulated their exit, the theory goes, to gain sympathy and remain in the NCAA’s good graces. Former Macalester president Brian Rosenberg hinted last December something wasn’t on the up-and-up when told The Mac Weekly, the school’s student newspaper: “The whole narrative of St. Thomas being involuntarily removed from the MIAC is not accurate.”   That was curious, since the MIAC used the phrase “involuntarily removed...

    The NHL has avoided any new coronavirus infections inside the league's two bubbles, but as Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tucker Poolman learned after taking a puck to the face on Tuesday, it's still best to wear a face mask.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Tens of thousands have gotten tested in Chicago for COVID-19. Many said the nasal swab is painful and invasive. But now there’s a painless way to find out if you’re infected. It raises the question of whether accuracy is being sacrificed for comfort. CBS 2’s Steven Graves went to find out. At a testing site in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood, it’s easy. No swabs will go inside your nose. It’s a quick swab of the mouth and you’re done. The city of Chicago sends you an instructional video after registering online. It outlines how you shouldn’t eat or drink 20 minutes before the test. You swab on the tongue, gums and cheeks. It’s a far departure from the invasive swab up your nasal cavity. But which one is more accurate? “The standard right now is a deep nasopharyngeal swab. That’s a test that’s been validated,” said Doctor...

    Earlier this week, on what Tim Cook called a “historic day,” Apple announced that it’s moving Macs away from Intel processors to its own silicon chips. The first Mac with Apple silicon is coming by the end of 2020, but Apple expects the full transition process to take two years. The new Macs will use arm64, the same CPU architecture that recent iOS devices use (Intel-based Macs use an architecture called x86-64). That’s an exciting move, because it means that they’ll be able to run iOS and iPadOS apps alongside those made for macOS. But it also means that apps that were developed for Intel’s architecture originally won’t run natively on Apple’s upcoming hardware. That’s where Rosetta 2 comes in: It’s an emulator built into macOS Big Sur that will enable ARM Macs to run old Intel apps. Rosetta 2 essentially “translates” instructions that were written for Intel processors...
    One woman got drilled in the groin in a painful video circulating the web. Barstool Sports tweeted a video of a woman dropping a basketball with a seltzer can on it, and the end result was brutal. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes) I assume the can was supposed to bounce back up so that she could grab it and drink it. Instead, it shot straight into her groin.

    Two years after the Los Angeles Times reverted to local ownership, one of the country’s largest metropolitan daily newspapers is facing a painful internal reckoning over glaring deficiencies and missteps regarding race and representation in its pages and its staff. On Wednesday, Executive Editor Norman Pearlstine heard from aggrieved newsroom staff members during a more than four-hour meeting examining the mistreatment of Black and brown editorial staff members past and present. He acknowledged that the 138-year-old paper had failed to capitalize on an unprecedented opportunity to better diversify its newsroom since its 2018 purchase by L.A. biotech billionaire Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong and his wife, Michele B. Chan. Wednesday’s meeting was conducted by Zoom videoconference because staffers have been working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. It came three weeks into a raw and deeply emotional self-examination that has unfolded on internal communications channels, a wide-ranging discussion about the paper’s news...

Image: Sony/Naughty Dog In the best possible way, The Last of Us Part II is hard. Not the overall challenge or its controls—gameplay is secondary to the emotional toll the story takes on you. It’s not a game that lets you choose what path to take: be the bad guy, be the good guy, etc. It forces you to be both and neither. To do things when you don’t want to, but also cathartically achieve moments you’ve been building toward. Depending on how you look at it, it can say a lot or nothing at all. Save for how the game actually ends (which we won’t spoil here) the biggest “spoiler” in The Last of Us Part II is that Ellie isn’t...

    Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo has ordered the last three words of her state’s official name, the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, purged from state documents and websites. The Democrat governor announced an executive order to delete “and Providence Plantations” on Monday because of the “image” the word “plantations” evokes concerning slavery. The order is part of a larger push involving the state legislature to cut the phrase out of the state name entirely. “This morning I signed an executive order removing the phrase Providence Plantations from gubernatorial orders and citations, all executive branch agency websites, all official correspondence, and state employee pay stubs and paychecks,” Raimondo said. “We can’t ignore the image conjured by the word ‘plantations.’ We can’t ignore how painful that is for black Rhode Islanders to see that.” “To those Rhode Islanders who wonder why we are doing this and thinking it denies our...
    Winona Ryder has fired back at Mel Gibson after recalling alleged anti-Semitic remarks he made to her in the past, revealing the “painful” homophobic words she says were hurled at her close friend. “The Plot Against America” actress, 48, says Gibson, 64, made “hateful” comments against late makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin over 20 years ago at a party. “I believe in redemption and forgiveness and hope that Mr. Gibson has found a healthy way to deal with his demons, but I am not one of them,” Ryder tells The Post. “Around 1996, my friend Kevyn Aucoin and I were on the receiving end of his hateful words. It is a painful and vivid memory for me.” Ryder also said the actor, who has been accused of anti-Semitic and homophobic words in the past, needs to come clean about his past so he can move forward. “Only by accepting responsibility for...
    The most influential players huddled virtually all weekend to discuss where they stood on MLB’s last offer, including with slight modifications that came Sunday. But all indications were they remained resolved against accepting the current version of a proposed 60-game season. That will only push commissioner Rob Manfred to more seriously move toward pressing the button he has wanted to avoid: Unilaterally implementing a season. All of this, though, is playing out against a backdrop of rising COVID-19 cases in important baseball states that have both owners and players deciding what is the proper next step. It leaves the situation fluid, open for potentially further attempts at a deal or even moving some owners to more seriously consider whether to try a season at all. If Manfred does unilaterally implement, as is his collectively bargained right on the condition that the players get their prorated pay, the probability is he...

    In a stunning display of hypocrisy and low self-awareness, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, who himself participated in protests that are themselves a giant violation of the city's COVID-19 guidelines, scolded New York police officers who, according to him, were not wearing masks during the course of controlling the crowds. On at least one of those occasions, as noted by the featured image in this story, de Blasio was not wearing a face mask at all. According to the New York Post, de Blasio made the comments on Sunday. In the remarks, which were carried on C-SPAN, de Blasio claimed, "We've seen too many officers who just have [masks] off, and it's painful to people because it feels like they're flouting the rules. The issue of masks and face coverings remains the subject of considerable scientific debate, particularly whether such masks are efficacious and whether they might, in...

    Matt DiBenedetto is returning to the scene of the crime. DiBenedetto is 11th in the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series standings. (Chris Graythen/Getty Images)) The journeyman NASCAR driver was on the verge of picking up his first career Cup Series win last August at Bristol Motor Speedway after dominating the second half of the race when Denny Hamlin stole the lead with just 11 laps to go. It was such a heartbreaking moment for the popular driver and his small Leavine Family Racing team that the first thing Hamlin did when he got out of his car was to apologize for winning the race. Hamlin passed DiBenedetto with 11 laps to go. (Brian Lawdermilk/Getty Images) “I’m so sorry to Matt DiBenedetto, [crew chief] Mike Wheeler. I hate it. I know a win would mean a lot to that team, but I gotta give 110 percent for FedEx and my...
