    Patrick Mahomes became the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL this summer with his record 10-year, $450 million contract extension with the Chiefs. Lamar Jackson, who succeeded him as league MVP last season, is now waiting for his big second payday from the Ravens in 2021. MORE: Comparing contracts of Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson Mahomes’ average annual salary was set at $45 million by the Chiefs, knowing that the QB market was going to get exponentially expensive. He got $63 million guaranteed at signing, but the big number was the $141.481 million in total guarantees. He also can earn up to $503 million with incentives and bonuses. Mahomes wanted to be secured in Kansas City long-term and team officials, fresh off seeing him lead the...
    Gary Sanchez may not just be on the bench when Gerrit Cole is on the mound in the playoffs. Manager Aaron Boone said Thursday on WFAN it would be a “day-to-day” decision during the postseason when it came to Sanchez and Kyle Higashioka behind the plate, and later in the day Boone made it clear why Sanchez’s starting job was in peril. “Obviously, performance matters and matchups matter and pairing guys matter,’’ Boone said before the Yankees faced the Blue Jays in Buffalo, with Higashioka catching Jordan Montgomery and Sanchez not in the lineup. “I think both will probably play an important role for us if we’re to go deep in this playoff,’’ Boone said of the two catchers.

    State and local governments are racing to spend millions in CARES Act funding before it reverts back to the federal government — and they're finding unexpected ways to use it, from "trunk-or-treating" in northeast Ohio to an experimental basic income program in St. Paul, Minn. The CARES Act provides $139 billion in payments to states and local governments. Those payments have funded things like increased police budgets to offset coronavirus costs and rent and utility assistance for struggling residents. STATES, SEEKING MORE CORONAVIRUS RELIEF FUNDS, HAVE HARDLY SPENT THE $139 BILLION APPROVED IN MARCH: REPORT However, blue states and Democratic mayors are also using the money for their pet causes.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter’s guaranteed income pilot program to give struggling families in the city $500 a month is moving forward. The city council unanimously voted Wednesday to move forward with the pilot, which would give 150 families $500 per month for 18 months. It’s called the People’s Prosperity Guaranteed Income Pilot.

    U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield told a Senate panel on Wednesday that face masks are better at protecting against the coronavirus disease than a potential vaccine. During a hearing on the federal response to COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) hosted by the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services, Dr. Redfield testified: I might even go so far as to say that this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine because the immunogenicity [ability to provoke an immune response] may be 70 percent. And if I don’t get an immune response, the vaccine is not going to protect me. This face mask will. The director of...
    Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Dr Robert Redfield claimed that masks offer more certain protection against coronavirus than vaccines will - at least in the immediate future.  'I might say this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against covid than when I take a vaccine' said Dr Redfield during his Wednesday testimony before a Senate subcommittee.  He pointed out that there is more research to clearly show that masks work to block the spread of infectious particles, while vaccines are still in testing and their true efficacy won't be entirely clear until large groups of people have been dosed.  Dr Redfield's comments came as part of the same testimony in which he and...

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Robert Redfield claimed during his congressional testimony on Wednesday that his face mask was “more guaranteed” to protect him from COVID-19 than a vaccine. Redfield testified before the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday, claiming that face masks were the most “important, powerful public health tool” in fighting the coronavirus pandemic and adding he thought masks were more likely to protect him from COVID-19 than a vaccine due to “immunogenicity” concerns.

    Meaghan Ellis September 16, 2020 0 Comments Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), weighed in with his opinion of face masks to protect against coronavirus. Redfield testified during a hearing before the Senate Committee on Appropriations on Wednesday where he urged Americans to “embrace” face coverings as he deemed masks the “most important, powerful public health tool” available. “Face masks, these face masks, are the most important, powerful public health tool we have, and I will continue to appeal for all Americans, all individuals in our country, to embrace these face coverings,” Redfield said. The top infectious disease expert highlighted just how effective a national mask mandate could be to slow...
    The director for the Centers for Disease Control trusts face masks to protect more people from COVID-19 than a vaccine. Emphasizing the importance of the medical equipment, on Wednesday, Sept. 16, at a Senate hearing, CDC Director Robert Redfield said that wearing a face mask is more guaranteed to protect someone from COVID-19 than taking an eventual vaccine. Vaccines don’t work in 100 percent of people, he noted, but a face mask offers at least some protection for everyone. “We have clear scientific evidence they work,” Redfield said about face masks. “I might even go so far as to say that this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine.”
    The comment came as Donald Trump continues to cast doubt on the use of masks. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield said on Wednesday that face masks are "more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine." "Face masks, are the most important, powerful public health tool we have," Redfield told the Senate Appropriations Committee, adding, "We have clear scientific evidence they work and they are our best defense." Redfield's comments came just hours after Donald Trump once again claimed some people "don't want to wear masks" and "think that masks are not good." Loading...
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield said Wednesday that face masks may be more effective at protecting against coronavirus transmission than a vaccine. “We have clear scientific evidence [face masks] work,” Dr. Redfield told the Senate Appropriations Committee. “I might even go so far as to say that this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine.” Redfield said vaccine distribution will not begin until mid-2021. Until then, masks are “our best defense” against the virus. If the COVID-19 vaccine does not create an immune response, Redfield said, “the vaccine’s not going to protect me. This face mask will.” “So I do want to...
    During an ABC News townhall event moderated by George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday night, President Donald Trump once again downplayed the benefits of wearing protective face masks. But when Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, testified during a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing Wednesday morning, he stressed that face masks are enormously helpful tools in the fight against coronavirus. Asked about Trump’s comments, Redfield told senators, “I’m not going to comment directly about the president, but I am going to comment as the CDC director that these face masks are the most important, powerful health tool we have. And I will continue to appeal for all Americans — all individuals in our country — to embrace...
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield said Wednesday that wearing a mask is more guaranteed to protect someone from coronavirus than taking a vaccine. Redfield, speaking at a Senate hearing, emphasized the importance of wearing masks, noting that an eventual vaccine is not expected to work in 100 percent of people, and might only work in, say, 70 percent. But a mask is guaranteed to offer at least some protection for all wearers, he added, though it is far from total protection.

She asked: “Should preexisting conditions, which Obamacare brought to fruition, be removed –” “No,” Trump jumped in. “Please stop and let me finish my question, sir,” Blaque said. “Should that be removed, within a 36 to 72-hour period, without my medication, I will be dead. And I want to know what it is that you’re going to do assure that people like me...

    Alvin Kamara now makes the most guaranteed money of any running back in the NFL. It seemed like yesterday when the New Orlean Saints were shopping running back and impending free agent Alvin Kamara after reported failed contract negotiations. But over a week later, both parties agreed to terms on a five-year, $75 million contract extension, ensuring Kamara is in a Saints uniform for the next six seasons maximum. Even though Kamara doesn’t top the running back charts for total money, he is the leader in one specific category. Kamara leads all NFL running backs in guaranteed money with $34.3 million. That’s more than what Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook, Derrick Henry, Ezekiel Elliott and Le’Veon Bell were given on their...

    Dalvin Cook and the Minnesota Vikings avoid disaster Cook was down to the final season on his rookie deal, and wanted to cash in while he still can. After the deals reached with the likes of Christian McCaffrey this offseason, the Vikings were in a tough position, as they didn’t want to overpay at a position that frequently sees players fall off in their late 20’s and early 30’s. Cook’s age, however, suggests that he still has plenty of good football left in him despite his injury history. Entering his age-25 season, Cook will avoid a franchise tag situation next offseason, as he’s signed a five-year extension with the Vikings. The deal will pay him $63 million and $28 million...
    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A pilot program proposed by St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter to guarantee $500 in monthly income to 150 low-income families affected by COVID-19 has hit a snag, with an influential congressional liberal questioning whether the plan to use federal coronavirus aid is legal. The St. Paul City Council delayed a vote until at least next week after U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum, a Democrat who represents the capital city, warned in a letter Wednesday that the proposal requires “careful design, implementation and oversight.” McCollum wrote to the Democratic mayor and all-Democratic council that the city must make certain that the program won’t violate laws on how the city can spend the money it is receiving under the federal...
    The contract extension Patrick Mahomes signed with the Chiefs this week is such that it can only be described as massive no matter how it’s viewed. The 24-year-old quarterback’s new deal is the richest contract in NFL history. With an average annual salary of $45 million once the extension kicks in starting with the 2022 season, no player in American team sports will make more money on an annual basis. And yet, this is still a good deal for the Chiefs, who now have the reigning Super Bowl MVP locked in for the next 12 years. Mahomes will count for only $5.347 million against Kansas City’s salary cap in 2020 as the team attempts to repeat as champions, and the contract is back-loaded in a way...
    Deshaun Watson, like Patrick Mahomes before him, doesn’t need to worry about securing a new contract beyond the 2020 NFL season. Both elite AFC quarterbacks selected in the first round of the 2017 draft were rewarded with lucrative extensions before the season. The Texans gave Watson a four-year, $156 million deal in early September. The Chiefs locked up Mahomes for a decade with a record-breaking 10-year, $45 million deal in early July. Although it seems like Mahomes got a lot more money and security than Watson, both QBs agreed on what was best for them going forward. Mahomes has the more guaranteed money overall from Kansas City, but there also are some ways Watson has an advantage in Houston. TEXANS VS. CHIEFS: Week 1...
    St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter’s plan to dip into federal CARES Act funding to launch $500 monthly payments to 150 low-income families impacted by the pandemic has run into questioning from a federal lawmaker from his own city and party. On Wednesday, several members of the St. Paul City Council appeared ready to vote in favor of using $300,000 in CARES Act money to get Carter’s “People’s Prosperity Pilot” off the ground. The mayor has said philanthropy will otherwise fund most of the $1.5 million, 18-month demonstration project. Minutes before the council meeting was to start, however, city staff reviewed a letter of concern from U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum, who questioned whether the pilot project met federal requirements for CARES...

    (CBSLA)- The Los Angeles Rams kick off their season on Sunday with a matchup against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Before the season begins, it turns out the Rams had one final piece of business to attend to: locking up cornerback Jalen Ramsey with a long-term extension.

    Nathan Peterman has a guaranteed job in 2020. Nathan Peterman was given the chance to lead a contending Buffalo Bills team in 2017.

He then earned the starting job in 2018, but looked so terrible he lasted just over one half again. Peterman was let go and has found a new home with the Las Vegas Raiders.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter signed an executive order Thursday creating a pilot program offering guaranteed income of $500 a month for families in low-income neighborhoods that have also been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. The People’s Prosperity Pilot will provide 150 families with $500 per month for 18 months. The money will come with no strings attached, such as work requirements. The cash is meant to supplement the existing social safety net and thereby become a tool for a more equitable city. “More than ever before, this economic crisis has pushed families into crisis, struggling to maintain basic necessities for their children,” said the mayor, in a statement. “This demonstration pilot is an exciting new...
    Calling race-based poverty and financial instability in the COVID-era part of a “series of compound crises,” St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter on Thursday announced he had created an 18-month guaranteed basic income program by executive order. The city will issue $500 monthly to 150 low-income families impacted by the pandemic. “If our budget does not reflect our values, they’re not our values,” said Carter, who invoked slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.’s “War on Poverty” campaign while acknowledging that critics would call the effort “far-fetched or even a radical idea.” The mayor noted that more than 70,000 residents in the city of 315,000 people had applied for unemployment benefits since the start of the pandemic. He sought to...
    (THE CONVERSATION)  Over the past six months, scientists have learned a few things as the COVID-19 pandemic has continued. We’ve learned that the virus that causes COVID-19 transmits particularly well when a group of people are together in a small, poorly ventilated area. We’ve learned that young people are just as susceptible as older people to infection. We’ve learned that if there is widespread community transmission, the virus will find its way to the very places we don’t want it go. So, it’s not surprising to us, researchers who study diseases that can be prevented by vaccines, that with schools and colleges reopening, the virus is spreading. These are places designed around the idea of bringing lots of people to...
    No one has seen more of rookie tackle Mekhi Becton on the Jets than veteran outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins. The two square off daily at training camp. Jenkins schools the first-round pick on some plays and then gets swallowed up by the 6-foot-7, 370-pounder on others. What does Jenkins think of Becton? “He’s got the tools to handle everything,” Jenkins said. “Once he mentally knows he can dominate everyone that lines up against him, it’s going to be a scary sight for people going against him.” The Jets took Becton with the No. 11 overall pick to shore up their offensive line and protect Sam Darnold’s blindside for the next decade.
