    The Dak Prescott contract situation is about to heat up for a second straight offseason after he played five games for the Dallas Cowboys in 2020 before suffering a season-ending ankle injury. Former NFL quarterback Carson Palmer, who essentially forced himself out of the Cincinnati Bengals organization and to the Oakland Raiders before joining the Arizona Cardinals, told 105.3 The Fan on Thursday that Prescott should consider taking less money when he negotiates his contract.

    SAN RAMON, Calif. (AP) — Samsung’s next crop of smartphones will boast bigger screens, better cameras, and longer-lasting batteries at lower prices than last year’s lineup that came out just before the pandemic toppled the economy. The three Galaxy S21 phones unveiled Thursday at a virtual event will face some of the same challenges in an economy still hobbled by a crisis that has left millions of people unemployed and forced millions of others to do their jobs or attend school from their homes. But this time Samsung has made some pricing adjustments that reflect the hard times. All three phones will be less expensive than last year’s comparable models, with the reductions ranging from 7% to 20%. Part of the price drops stems from the falling cost for making devices compatible with faster 5G wireless networks, but Samsung also is trying to make its devices more affordable to consumers...

    VALDOSTA, Georgia — South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem urged Georgians to rally behind GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) here on Wednesday, the second of many stops in her latest swing through the Peach State ahead of Tuesday’s upcoming U.S. Senate runoffs. Loeffler and Perdue, this coming Tuesday, respectively face Democrats Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in runoffs that will determine majority control of the upper congressional chamber. If both Democrats win, the U.S. Senate would deadlock at a 50-50 tie and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would cut the ties, throwing control of the chamber to the Democrats. Noem, a rising GOP star who’s resisted lockdowns and mandates in response to the coronavirus pandemic in her state of South Dakota, campaigned here at Jessie’s Restaurant speaking first for about 15 minutes, and then taking another nearly half hour of questions from conservatives gathered for her appearance....
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday tweeted out that a bipartisan coronavirus relief and omnibus bill has been enrolled and is on its way to President Donald Trumps desk for his signature.  "The bipartisan COVID relief & omnibus bill has been enrolled," the senior House Dem from California tweeted. "The House & Senate are now sending this important legislation #ForThePeople to the White House for the President’s signature. We urge him to sign this bill into law to give immediate relief to hard-working families!" This, though the wrangling continues after Trump criticized the bill and demanded that lawmakers provide bigger relief checks. Instead of $600 for individuals, he wanted $2,000, $4,000 for couples. House Republicans rejected the idea of those bigger checks on Wednesday, in a rare and very brief House session that left millions of Americans wonder what comes next as the bill with the lesser relief sum and government...
    The COVID-19 pandemic had a massive negative impact from an economic standpoint. Owing to this, there have had to be several cutbacks and people taking pay cuts. Even the likes of NASCAR is not immune to this, as a couple of teams were forced to shut down. In a recent conversation, Bubba Wallace‘s spotter, Freddie Kraft, and Clint Bowyer‘s former spotter, Brett Griffin, spoke about the Cup Series drivers and the difference in their earnings these days. Speaking about Chase Briscoe, Griffin said, “I don’t know what exactly the specifics of his deal is. I know these rookies are signing contracts for significantly less money than they were even three to four years ago.” “There are some guys in the Cup Series that have even been around a while. That are signing contracts for significantly less,” Griffin added. What is the primary reason behind this issue for NASCAR? According to...

    By PATRICK WHITTLE, Associated Press LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — A contentious fight for Maine's vast, mostly rural 2nd Congressional District broke state fundraising records in 2018, when the district played a pivotal role in the Democrats' drive to take back the U.S. House of Representatives. This time around, that's not the case. Democratic Rep. Jared Golden's first drive to retain his seat has attracted far less money, fewer television ads and less national attention than the election two years ago that sent him to the House. His Republican opponent, former state Rep. Dale Crafts, doesn't think that means he can't take back the seat for the GOP. But the contrasts between the two races are stark. The 2018 race, which pitted Golden against incumbent Republican Bruce Poliquin, generated more than $24 million in spending. This time around Golden leads the way with more than $4.2 million in campaign cash and...
    By Ryan Nobles | CNN President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee announced a joint fundraising haul of $247.8 million in the month of September — up from the $210 million the GOP raised in August, but far behind the massive total raised by former Vice President Joe Biden and Democrats in the final stretch of the campaign. Biden raised $383 million in September, breaking a monthly fundraising total record that his campaign had just set in August. Biden and the Democratic Party outraised Trump and the Republicans by $135 million in September. By comparison, Hillary Clinton raised $154 million in September of 2016. Trump’s campaign has been raising and spending money at an historic clip, but Biden and the Democrats quickly turned the tables in August after the Democratic convention and the selection of California Sen. Kamala Harris as Biden’s running mate. In addition to raising significantly...

    Dear Moneyist, My husband and I have been married for 19 years. During the first decade, our income was comparable, and we contributed equally to our expenses with not much put aside for a rainy day. In 2012, I started earning two-thirds more than my husband. We decided to share expenses according to our incomes. So he pays one third and I pay two thirds. My husband’s pay has increased considerably since then, although he still earns less than me. I told him to pick up the slack and pay more until my extra share is paid off because I know he can afford it now. I have built three houses, all paid off and stashed money for our children’s 529 plans. The Moneyist: I’m 24 and dating a 64-year-old man. He wanted to get married, but I discovered he never got divorced. Have I been conned? He gives...
    (CNN)Female doctors get paid less than male doctors, but a new study disputes the common wisdom that it's because they work less.In fact, female doctors spend more time with patients, order more tests and spend more time discussing preventive care than their male counterparts, a team of researchers reported in the New England Journal of Medicine."That raises the question of whether we are paying for what we really care about in health care," said Dr. Ishani Ganguli, an internal medicine specialist at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital, who led the study team.Ganguli and colleagues looked at billing and time data covering more than 24 million visits to primary care doctors in the US in 2017.How the coronavirus widens the gender pay gap"We calculated that women were paid 87 cents to the dollar for every hour worked compared to their male colleagues," Ganguli told CNN.Read MoreFemale doctors spent...
    A new portion of Michael Cohen’s autobiography breaks down President Donald Trump’s admiration for Vladimir Putin and his alleged disinterest in anything that doesn’t personally benefit himself. In Disloyal: A Memoir, Trump’s former personal lawyer goes into great detail on his ex-boss’ racism, his self-centeredness, and his disdain for other people. In a portion of the book flagged by NBC News, Cohen admits he doesn’t know if Russia has financial leverage on Trump, but he does say that Trump praised Putin during the 2016 election because he expected to lose and wanted to still be able to borrow money from Russian sources for his business empire. “The whole idea of patriotism and treason became irrelevant in his mind,” Cohen writes. “Trump was using the campaign to make money for himself: of course he was.” When Cohen was facing his legal troubles in 2018, he came under great scrutiny after...
    Jailed actress Lori Loughlin is pleading for a judge to lower her $1million bond down to $100,000, as attorneys promise she wont flee.  The 55-year-old actress, who skyrocketed to fame on the sitcom Full House, pleaded guilty in May to paying bribes to get her daughters into the University of Southern California as fake crew recruits in the widespread Operation Varsity Blues college admissions scandal. She and her designer husband Mossimo Giannulli, 56, face sentencing on August 21 in Boston.

    Joe Sargent/Getty Images Antonio Brown celebrates with JuJu Smith-Schuster after a touchdown reception against the New England Patriots in 2018. When an NFL team like the Pittsburgh Steelers signs a player, it hopes that player remains with the club through the end of the contract. Otherwise, a portion of his financial compensation may count against the salary cap after he is no longer on the team. Too much ‘dead money’ on an NFL salary cap results in a competitive disadvantage, and it often plays a role in the decision to cut or trade a player. For example, the Philadelphia Eagles may have wanted to release DeSean Jackson after he posted anti-Semitic statements on social media earlier this week, but per contract details available at overthecap.com, that would have resulted in a $12.536 million charge on Philadelphia’s 2020 salary cap. (That is, the $4.8 million Jackson is owed this...

    Madison Keys, the 2017 U.S. Open runner-up, has not played a real tennis match since January, so she was thrilled when a partial schedule was released for the sport’s true return after its coronavirus-forced hiatus. “Halfway through the year, we’re (usually) all kind of thinking, ‘Oh, I’d love some weeks at home. Been on the road for so long. Those pressure moments in matches are so stressful’ and all of that,” said Keys, one of 16 women in an exhibition event in Charleston, South Carolina, next week. “And now we’re all like, ‘Please put me on a center court, break-point down in the third, because I would love to have that feeling again.’” Now that there is a plan in place for top-level tennis to resume — starting in August in Italy, then Washington, with Grand Slam action to follow in New York, then Paris, assuming the COVID-19 outbreak...
    (CNN)Lamborghini's new Huracán Evo RWD is the Italian auto maker's least expensive supercar -- and it is also the most enjoyable one to drive. The base price for the Huracán Evo starts at about $208,000, which is still outlandishly expensive by ordinary standards. Still, it's much less than the next cheapest Huracán, which starts at about $260,000, or the V12-powered Avantador which can't be had for any less than about $420,000. Only the Lamborghini Urus SUV can be bought for around the Huracan Evo RWD's starting price. The 601-horsepower Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD offers a more old-school experience than other Lamborghinis.Of course, the starting price on a Lamborghini leaves a long way to go. Option costs can add up with startling speed.For example, the Huracan Evo RWD I test drove cost $285,000. That included an optional $14,000 pearlescent yellow paint job.
