    To win the race to fertilise an egg, some sperm cells don't play fair, and actually poison their opposition, a study has revealed. Experts from Germany found, in studies of mice, that sperm carrying a genetic factor called a 't-haplotype' are able to move forwards faster towards their target. Meanwhile, their competition without this group of genes are less effective at progressing, and are more likely to end up meandering around aimlessly in circles. The researchers linked the difference in motility (the ability to move) to a protein called RAC1, which transfers signals from outside the sperm cells to the inside. In white blood cells and cancer cells, RAC1 is known to play a role in directing its host cells to others that are exuding chemical signals. Given this, and the findings of the new study, it is possible that the protein plays a similar role in sperm cells, helping them...
    Reps. Majorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert (Photo: Getty Images) Donald Trump has once again made history — and of course not for good reason. He is the first president in American history to ever be impeached twice. Worse, he is the first president in history to be impeached by the biggest bi-partisan vote in history (ten Republicans crossed party lines to vote for his impeachment).  For context, only Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1999 were impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives and neither was removed by the Senate. Trump’s trial will likely start in the Senate after President Joe Biden is sworn in next Wednesday on Jan. 20.  Read More: Trump declares emergency in DC ahead of Biden inauguration U.S. President Donald Trump walks to the White House residence after exiting Marine One upon his return on January 12, 2021 in Washington, DC.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The turmoil this week is just the latest assault on our senses and our children are seeing it too. Tony Mannarino, Ph.D. from Allegheny Health Network is a psychologist specializing in child trauma and says children are impacted by all this. He says parents need to be proactive to drive home the zero tolerance for violence message. “I think it’s scarier for teenagers because, you know, kids in our society teenagers particularly can feel like they don’t have a voice, and then maybe the way to get a voice is by what they observe on TV,” he said. So he says parents need to open a line of communication. “Well, I think you hit the nail on the head,” he said. “Having the kind of relationship with our adolescent children, that’s open enough so that they feel like they can talk to us....
    Spencer Platt/Getty Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.Back in 2002, after two years of bankruptcy proceedings, a North Carolina pillow manufacturer hired a Reebok executive named David Perdue to right the ship. For Pillowtex, Perdue’s experience with outsourcing jobs was part of the appeal. (“I spent most of my career doing that,” he admitted later in a deposition.) He was a cost-cutter. He was a winner. And, with few options, at the end of 2002 Perdue indeed helped develop a four-year plan, according to a Charlotte Observer investigation, to fix the firm. It’s key recommendation: “wiping out most of Pillowtex’s U.S. jobs.” But in the end, Perdue’s plan to aggressively market pillows and textiles while moving jobs overseas failed. Executives blamed the overall death of industry that loomed on the horizon; in 2005, the United...
    An escape to the country might mean a little thatched cottage with roses over the door for most of us, but Pippa Middleton could soon be making a much grander move out of the city – to a 72-acre estate. Pippa and hedge-fund billionaire husband James Matthews are said to be close to buying the land which, handily, is just a stone’s throw from her parents’ £5 million mansion in idyllic Bucklebury, Berkshire. The couple currently live in a £17 million six-bedroom home in London. The huge countryside site they are said to have their eye on is known as Bucklebury Farm Park and operates as a safari park and petting zoo. Originally on sale at £1.5 million, agents Knight Frank have confirmed it is under offer, but refused to comment further citing client confidentiality. A spokesman for James, 45, and Pippa, 37 – younger sister of the Duchess of...
    RICK and Morty is a popular adult animated science fiction series. The show, which airs on the Adult Swim cable channel, has featured a talking cat. 4A talking cat appeared on the animated show Rick and MortyCredit: Adult Swim Why can the cat talk in Rick and Morty? The season four episode Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim’s Morty - which aired in 2019 - included a talking cat. Fans have driven themselves mad speculating why the cat could talk, and the series creator has finally spilled the beans. “The cat subplot was an attempt to just have fun. The cat represents that voice in your head in the writers room that you’re overthinking it,” the show's co-creator Dan Harmon told Decider. Harmon came under fire recently after a controversial video resurfaced online. 4The talking cat has been a hot topic for fans since the episode aired in 2019Credit: Adult Swim...
    Beyonce leads the nominations for the 2021 Grammy Awards, but all fans could talk about was the overall snub of The Weeknd, The successful debut of his latest record After Hours received no nominations at all. While many of today’s top artists and musicians found themselves on the receiving end of the academy’s good graces, music fans were confused as to why one of the top male singers and songwriters was ignored in virtually every category. Beyonce received nine nods in eight categories, including Song of the Year for “Black Parade.” This was a track that was released during the Black Lives Matter protests during the summer of 2020. Other artists that were nominated with the legendary female performer in the same category were Samuel Gloade and Rodrick Moore for “The Box,” Post Malone for “Circles,” Dua Lipa for “Don’t Start Now,” Dernst Emile II, H.E.R. and Tiara Thomas for...
    Think piece after think piece has been written trying to explain how President Donald Trump overperformed with people of color and other demographics that make up the Democratic coalition. But little has been said of what is most obvious and perhaps the greatest factor in this budding political realignment: Trump communicates in the style of the average non-political American, irrespective of color or creed. Trump can certainly be crude, and even vulgar at times, but his is the language of the American working class, with its off the cuff hilarity and non-sequiturs, a beautiful, bombastic cacophony that can be overheard in barrooms and bleachers from sea to shining sea. Trumpian language is the language of your slightly off-kilter yet lovable uncle or that hard-ass coach who smacked you upside the head but somehow always had the best advice or even of your very own sweet, sweet mother after she’s had...
    Madison Summers October 19, 2020 0 Comments Dr. Anthony Fauci has made several media appearances across different programs since the coronavirus pandemic began. He is a member of the White House task force. During an appearance on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” aired on Sunday, Fauci was asked if the White House “has been controlling” when he can speak with the media. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, responded, “I think you’d have to be honest to say yes.” “I have certainly not been allowed to go on many, many, many shows that have asked for me,” he continued. CBS’ Dr. Jon LaPook asked if Fauci can understand the “frustration” of not hearing from Fauci — who he dubbed “one of the most trusted voices in America” — sometimes. “Can you understand the frustration that maybe there’s been a restriction on the flow of information?”...
    After the issue of “mansplaining” came up during ABC News’ post-VP debate coverage, Martha Raddatz responded and pushed back against the suggestion that’s what Mike Pence did to Kamala Harris. George Stephanopoulos remarked at one point that “a lot of people were noticing some mansplaining going on tonight.” “When I hear people say — talk about mansplaining and talk about these things with Kamala Harris and a man shouldn’t interrupt her and it’s going to look bad,” Raddatz said, “Kamala Harris is a vice presidential candidate, she should be able to stand up for herself.” “Yes, it’s history-making, yes, you can talk about her history and who she is and she’s a woman of color there,” she continued, “but a man can interrupt another vice presidential candidate. It is up to that candidate to talk back, to interrupt themselves, or to hold on to that debate in any way they...
    Amanda Marcotte September 30, 2020 4:30PM (UTC) Forget the euphemistic language being used by much of the mainstream press to describe Tuesday night's presidential debate between Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. That wasn't a "contentious debate," nor were the candidates "bickering." No, Biden showed up to do normal politician things, only to find himself trapped on stage with Trump, a shit-flinging money whose only purpose was to prevent anything resembling truth from slipping through and touching the ears of the public.  For an hour and a half, the same thing kept happening over and over. (And over, and over.) Biden would try to talk, about literally anything — Trump's failures, his own policy ideas, the state of the nation, hell, possibly the weather — and Trump would immediately interrupt the second he heard a truth about to be stated, ranting over Biden and silencing any factual information or expression of decency under...

    A pimp turned activist who once vowed to 'go to war' with Seattle is being paid $150,000 by the city to work as a 'street czar' and come up with 'alternatives to policing' because he said he can talk to 'gang members, pimps and prostitutes who won't sit down with anybody else'. Andrè Taylor, who set up nonprofit Not This Time after his brother Che Taylor was shot dead by Seattle cops in 2016, signed a deal with the city on July 27 to work as its community liaison, according to the contract published by PubliCola last week.  As part of the $12,500 a month deal, Taylor will provide recommendations to the city on de-escalation, community engagement, and alternatives to policing as Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan aims to improve relations between law enforcement and community members in the wake of multiple cop killings of black men and women across America.  Taylor, who...

    Breitbart Tech reporter Allum Bokhari, author of an upcoming book exposing Silicon Valley called #DELETED: Big Tech’s Battle to Erase the Trump Movement and Steal The Election, appeared on the Brian Thomas Show on 55KRC, warning listeners that Big Tech currently has the ability to “turn down the volume” on entire political movements without anyone realizing. (LISTEN: Allum Bokhari on the Britan Thomas Show on 55KRC) “Well this is the really insidious thing,” said Bokhari. “Many of us know about the overt censorship, prominent Trump supporters getting banned from these platforms, grassroots Trump supporters getting banned from these platforms.” “But the more sinister thing is the stuff you can’t see. The level of precision of censorship is really breathtaking.” “These companies have figured out that the people who share similar political viewpoints, they’ll often use similar language, link to similar websites, or talk about similar issues.” “And what they’re doing is,...

Pablo Motos began the program with a short monologue on the new normal in which I mentioned United we can and to king emeritus. “We are a little deaf in the mouth,” he said, referring to the fact that many people lower their masks to speak. “We go in the taxi and nothing is understood. This is how it happened to King Emeritus, who wanted to go to the Dominican Republic and ended up in the Arab Emirates“joked the presenter. “Then there are those who have their noses on the outside.

    Two of Larry King’s five children have died in the past month, his granddaughter told DailyMail.com. The legendary chat show host suffered the terrible double tragedy just months after barely surviving a stroke and weeks-long coma himself last year. King’s son Andy, 65, died suddenly on July 28 from what his family believe to be a heart attack. He was followed by his sister, King’s daughter Chaia, 52, who died on Wednesday following a battle with lung cancer.  King's granddaughter Jillian, 31, said the 86-year-old TV show host was still recovering from his stroke and unable to travel from Los Angeles due to coronavirus, and so he had to watch his Florida-based son be buried on video. ‘Everyone’s feeling pretty bad and broken. Larry is really hurt and upset,’ Jillian told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview. ‘He was very sick last year. His kids were all taking very close care...
    When I first got with my now husband, I was so deliriously besotted with him and our sex life, I shared an extremely intimate video of us with a few of my closest friends. My friends are used to me being open about sex and asking them all sorts in the interest of research for my books, but this was one step too far in the completely wrong direction. It was way, way, WAY TMI. Why did I do it? Mostly because I was happy and excited about my new relationship and wanted to share this with my friends. Was I wrong to do it? Hell, yes! I still have no idea what I was thinking. (OK, I do. Lust and love send you barmy at the beginning.) My friends were amused and indulged me but they were also shocked to be shown something so personal. I feel hot with...
    AN ADORABLE pup learned how to tell his parents when he wants to go out, get scratched and even that he loves them using a dog-friendly soundboard. The dog, a nearly one-year-old sheepadoodle named Bunny, lives in Tacoma, Washington with his owner Alexis Devine. 5 Bunny uses his soundboard to 'talk' to his momCredit: SWNS:South West News Service 5 Bunny is an 11-month-old sheepadoodleCredit: SWNS:South West News Service He was introduced to a special soundboard just a few weeks after he was born, when he first moved into the Devine home in September 2019, according to The Daily Mail. Bunny's soundboard currently has 45 words on it, and a sweet video shared to TikTok shows the pup using it to tell Devine, "Love you, mom." The video also shows the pup asking for "happy stritches" - a little scratch on his head. 5 The pup can press dozens of different...
    O.J. Simpson is happy to be talking about football again. The legendary NFL running back posted a new Twitter video for his fans Monday, and he looked very excited to have some action to break down. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) “With all the negative stuff that’s going on in the world today, it’s nice to talk a little football,” Simpson explained to his followers.

    Rob Manfred did what he did not want to do, but had to do. He told the players where and when. The commissioner implemented a season that will be 60 games if the union by 5 p.m. Tuesday signs off on health and safety protocols, and agrees to show up to spring training on July 1. There has been a lobbing of a pressurized tennis ball from one court to the other, forcing action or reaction by the players or the owners with each new offer or counteroffer or loaded statement. Manfred had one hit at him Monday. He wanted to reach an agreement, but the union rejected MLB’s plan built around a 60-game season with prorated pay and other bells and whistles. So as badly as he did not want to implement, Manfred did so at 60 games — taking away the bell and whistle perks. So now it...
    Instead of X’s and O’s, the Denver Broncos spent Tuesday talking about racial injustice, police brutality and healing a nation rocked by demonstrations over George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis on top of the coronavirus outbreak and its economic devastation. Team president Joe Ellis addressed the offense and defense in separate Zoom calls that replaced the team’s regular video conference sessions, which are a substitute for in-person training during the pandemic. Coach Vic Fangio and general manager John Elway also participated in the calls in which Ellis emphasized society’s need to eradicate racism and told the players that the organization shares in the outrage over Floyd’s death at the hands of police.

    (CNN)As cities and social media explode with anger over the killing of yet another black man at the hands of police, worried parents struggle with how to protect their children from seeing the worst of the violence while simultaneously explaining the ravages of racism.It couldn't have come at a worse time. Sheltering at home for months to avoid the deadly coronavirus, many parents stressed by juggling work and child care from home had eased their restrictions on screen time for their children.Now it's even more likely that kids might find the video of George Floyd, an unarmed and handcuffed black man in Minneapolis, gasping for breath as a white police officer pressed a knee into his neck. Even if they haven't, experts say parents should assume their children are already aware of tragedies like these and their aftermath.Read More"Children and adolescents are experiencing the collateral consequences of the publicized murderers...
    A Mississippi mayor is facing fierce backlash over “disturbing” comments he made about the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody — including the remark, “If you can talk, you can breathe.” Hal Marx, mayor of Petal, weighed in on viral video footage that shows Floyd, who was black, saying “I can’t breath” while a white Minneapolis police officer pins him to the ground by his neck. “If you say you can’t breathe, you’re breathing. Most likely that man died of overdose or heart attack,” Marx tweeted with no evidence, according to NBC News. Marx’s Twitter account is no longer active. In a follow-up tweet, the Republican — who was first elected mayor in 2009 and entertained a run for governor in 2019 — reportedly said he “didn’t see anything unreasonable” about the death of Floyd, 46, which led to the firing of four Minneapolis police officers. But his...
