    With the world watching on as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn into office Wednesday, it was the new Vice President’s nephew-in-law who captured the attention of social media after he was seen descending the Capitol steps in an incredibly expensive pair of sneakers. Nikolas Ajagu, the partner of Harris’ niece Meena, was spotted by eagle-eyed viewers sporting a pair of Dior Air Jordan 1 sneakers during the 59th presidential inauguration this morning. Only 8,500 pairs of the shoes were made as part of a collaboration between Dior and Jordan last year, which all sold out immediately at their retail price of $2,200. They now sell for up to as much as $10,000 on re-sale sites. Sneaker fanatics first sighted the ultra-rare kicks while Sen. Amy Klobuchar was delivering a speech moments before Biden was administered the oath of office. The discovery prompted an online investigation to identify the...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – For some Dallas ISD teachers, Inauguration Day has served as an educational moment for their students. “As a professor, I like to steer them into acknowledging what’s happening,” said Manuel Benzvi who teaches at Judge Barefoot Sanders Law Magnet School. Benzvi encouraged his political science students to watch the inauguration. “It is important for them to be a part of the process because they are going to be the next voters,” he said. In the class on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 10th, 11th and 12th graders watched a short clip on how Inauguration Day has changed over the course of history and what its purpose is. Then there was open discussion on how this Inauguration Day is unlike any other — and what this day means to students. “We continue to live in a pandemic so this inauguration must have a lot of preventions in place beforehand in...
    New York Yankees: Are the Yankees going to be “left” out without Brett Gardner By: William Parlee January 20, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees, after having a near-silent offseason, have now accomplished their biggest needs. The Yankees offered the second baseman and baseball batting title winner DJ LeMahieu a $6.9 million raise as a qualifying offer, the only one given by the Yankees. He would have earned $18.9 million for the 2021 season, but he refused and became a free agent. With money being a second consideration, DJ wanted a long contract that the Yankees did not want to give the 32-year-old. In the end, both sides got what they wanted. The Yankees got a low $15 million annual investment, and DJ got a six-year deal. The other big need was to sign a number two-like starting pitcher to back up ace Gerrit...
    At UFC 257 it is understood that if anything were to happen to either Conor McGregor or Dustin Poirier, either fighter from the co-main event would step up as a replacement. However, after last Saturday, a new name in Max Holloway has been thrown around for a potential replacement to the main event at UFC 257.  ‘Blessed‘ secured a stunning lopsided win over Calvin Kattar. What was even more shocking, was that after his win ‘Blessed’ said that he would be sticking around for another week for UFC 257. Furthermore, he threw his name into the hat for contention and said that Dana White had his number.  Read: Conor McGregor fight inevitable- Michael Chandler ready for his biggest challenge at UFC  Michael Chandler gives his thoughts on Max Holloway’s offer In a recent interview with SCMP MMA, Andrew Whitelaw asked Michael Chandler what he made of Holloway’s offer to remain...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: Frequently nowadays, people answer their cellular phones, an entirely voluntary action, by stating, “This is X. What is it? I am busy,” or “I can’t talk now. What’s up?” Today, someone said, “I am standing in my linen closet folding sheets. I don’t have time to talk. What is it?” Can you recommend either 1. a soothing or satisfying internal thought for the caller, who is thinking, “But I did not force you to answer; why must you be so rude?” or 2. an appropriate reply? GENTLE READER: For the second, Miss Manners suggests, “Oh, sorry, never mind. Goodbye.” This should leave the rude person forever wondering what was up — which, in turn, should provide the satisfaction requested in the first.

    Outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar claims there is a "concerted effort" among incoming Biden administration officials to downplay the Trump administration’s accomplishments fighting the coronavirus pandemic. "This is a concerted effort by the new team to down-talk where things are, so they could look like heroes when they come in and just carry forward the momentum that we have established," Azar told Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino on the newly relaunched "America’s Newsroom" on Monday. HHS SECRETARY AZAR RIPS CNN AFTER REPORT OF RESIGNATION: ‘I AM STILL HERE’ The secretary responded to incoming Biden chief of staff Ron Klain’s criticism of the administration’s vaccine rollout and pandemic response. "We’re inheriting a huge mess here," Klain told CNN’s "State of the Union" on Sunday. Azar defended his department’s work, touting its success in making COVID-19 vaccine doses available to states. Over 31 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have...
    Germans who refuse to quarantine after being exposed to Covid will be held in detention centres under new rules prepared by regional authorities. The eastern state of Saxony has confirmed plans to hold quarantine-flouters in a fenced-off section of a refugee camp set to be build next week. The regional state claimed that the facility will only be used for people who have repeatedly flouted lockdown rules around self-isolation. Baden-Württemberg in south-west Germany will use two hospital rooms to detain repeat offenders, who will be guarded by police. In Brandenburg, authorities will detain a section of a refugees centre, while Schleswig-Holstein will use an area within a juvenile detention centre.  Legal experts told Die Welt that state governments have powers to detain people for breaching quarantine rules under the Disease Protection Act, passed by the German Bundestag last March and renewed in November. The plan has been widely criticised, with AfD MP Joana...

    The Church of Satan has threatened to 'hex' the arsonist who burned down New York's famous 'Halloween House' in Poughkeepsie.   The House of Netherworld, in the 'Witch District' of the city, was allegedly set alight at 5am on January 14. The flames burned for more than 90-minutes, with two adults escaping the blaze unharmed.  Police are hunting an individual captured on CCTV spraying the porch with gasoline.  Peter H Gilmore, high priest of the Church of Satan, an atheist philosophy founded in 1966 that does not worship the devil, paid tribute in a 'requiem' to the house and its former owner, Joe 'Netherworld' Mendillo. Other members vowed to put a 'hex' on the suspected arsonist.  The house's name stemmed from its year-round Halloween decorations and devil sculptures, hearse in the drive-way and a sign over the garage that reads 'Devil's garage'. The 'Halloween House', also known as 'The House of...

    When President Obama visited Roseburg, Oregon following a mass shooting in 2009, he got a proper Republican greeting. A few weeks ago, it was still possible to compare the daily deaths from COVID-19 to some past events. 9/11. Or Pearl Harbor. Or D-Day. But all of that went by the wayside as the number of those falling to the virus each day passed 3,000. Then 4,000. 2020 likely saw an unprecedented use of “unprecedented,” and when it comes to the pandemic, that bit of justified awfulness is far from over. Even in the middle of a pandemic that is killing Americans faster than any war in history, there are still some situations that stand out for the extra awfulness that people can show to each other. That’s certainly true of the Republicans in Congress who refused to wear a mask even as they were huddling together under threat of death from...

Andy Beshear on Friday declared "we're not going to be bullied" in the wake of last week's riots at the US Capitol and fears of further violence in state capitals.States across the country are increasing security ahead of what the FBI has warned are "armed protests" being planned at all 50 state capitols in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration."Our goal is to be prepared.

    It is unclear as to whether to Tokyo Olympics will actually go ahead. Getty/Charly Triballeuau Olympic officials and the Japanese government remain torn as to whether Tokyo 2020 will go ahead this summer.  The Games were postponed by 12-months last year amid the coronavirus pandemic and are set to finally commence on July 23, however record infection levels in Japan have raised fresh doubts about the Games.  "It could go either way," Japanese minister Taro Kono said on Thursday. "The Olympic Committee must be thinking about Plan B, Plan C." Tokyo 2020 spokesperson Masa Takaya, however, said on Wednesday: "We will deliver the Games this year.

    Melania Trump secretly packed up the White House as her husband refused to concede the election and only found out she wasn't going to Joe Biden's inauguration when President Donald Trump tweeted he wouldn't attend. The first lady is winding down her final week at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and preparing for the next phase of her family's life. '(Melania Trump) is not sad to be leaving,' one White House official told CNN.  The first family will move to Mar-a-Lago after leaving Washington D.C. Moving vans were spotted outside the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on Wednesday as the first family and Trump administration staff prepare to exit the premises. Packing boxes have been spotted outside office doors in the West Wing.

    Madison Summers January 14, 2021 0 Comments As lawmakers met on the House floor Wednesday regarding an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump, advisers had to reportedly thwart the president from going there. The New York Times reported, “Advisers said that Mr. Trump had to be dissuaded from going to the House floor to try to defend himself during Wednesday’s impeachment proceedings.” The Times added that this was “something he wanted to do during his first impeachment in December 2019,” citing remarks made by advisers. The newspaper also reports that the White House was “sparsely staffed” this week and “those who did go to work tried to avoid the Oval Office.” U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) shows the article of impeachment against U.S. President Donald Trump after signing it in an engrossment ceremony, at the U.S. Capitol in Washington January 13, 2021.

    Growing up in the 90’s was sure to be a great time for video game and anime lovers. And we must say it: a lot of that fun we owe to great minds in Japan who gave us, for example, the story of Dragon ball on television and action The king of Fighters on consoles. Now, can you imagine that those two universes would have shared the stage? Of course, it would have been something epic … In fact, as far-fetched as it sounds today, was about to be a reality. This was recently revealed by a SNK developer, the company that created the iconic fighting game.

    Nancy Grace has blasted rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol Building last Wednesday, and is calling for some of them to be charged with murder.  'What they did is a crime and they all need to be identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,' the legal commentator raged during her Crime Stories show on Fox Nation Tuesday.  'Over my dead cold, body is this going to go away.'  Police officer Brian Sicknick was among five people who died following the siege of the government building by the mob of Trump supporters last Wednesday.  The cop was reportedly bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher and later died in hospital.  'They didn't go with the intent to kill a cop... But murder can be formed in the blink of an eye - the intent to commit murder,' Grace stated on the show.  'Each one of them can be charged with felony...
    Fox Nation host Nancy Grace dedicated the latest episode of "Crime Stories" to last week's riot on Capitol Hill that left five people dead and shocked the nation.  "We just went through one hell of a year in 2020 with the coronavirus, with the [death of] George Floyd, with the protests. And this has somehow become, I believe, what some people consider to be normal, to go in and destroy, to to just have insurrection," a SWAT team officer and former detective told Grace in the episode. Grace herself repeatedly called for those responsible for the violence and destruction to be "prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," arguing that "each one of them could have been charged or can be charged with felony murder." The host also vowed not to forget the deaths that were caused on that day, saying: "Over my dead cold body is this going away." TOMI LAHREN SCOLDS CAPITOL RIOTERS...
    Fox News contributor and former deputy White House chief of staff Karl Rove warned Tuesday that House Democrats' drive to impeach President Trump in connection with last week's riot at the U.S. Capitol is "very problematic for the country." Rove was reacting on "The Story" to House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney's declaration that she would vote to impeach Trump when the resolution comes before lawmakers Wednesday. KARL ROVE: Well, I think he's [Trump is] going to leave office disgraced and discredited ... I think one of the powerful points that Rep. Cheney [R-Wyo.] made was that the president sat there in the Oval Office as we watched in horror as this assault was made on the Capitol and did nothing. He did not go out and call upon his supporters to withdraw from the Capitol and to leave in peace [until] hours later. And even then, he couldn't bring himself to condemn the...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders HC Jon Gruden. Heading into the season, there was a ton of hype surrounding the Las Vegas Raiders‘ rookie wide receivers. Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards were highly touted coming out of college and both were slated as starters at the beginning of the season. Injuries and lack of production caused both men to see their roles decrease as the season went on. Edwards pretty much dissappeared between Weeks 9 through 16 as he only caught four passes in eight games. Fortunately, he was able to end the season on a high note. Despite only catching two passes in the season finale against the Denver Broncos, Edwards made a very impressive touchdown catch for the first score of his career. It was a good way to end a disappointing season. Head coach Jon Gruden thinks that Edwards had a very strong career ahead of...
    VIDEO4:2004:20Freshman congressman says GOP needs to own up to Trump's lossThe News with Shepard Smith Republican Congressman Peter Meijer from Michigan was one of only nine freshmen GOP lawmakers who voted to uphold the Nov. 3 election results. He told CNBC's "The News with Shepard Smith" that his life could now be at risk because of it.  "We realize that was a vote we cast that put our safety at risk and going forward, I am expecting there will likely be more political violence," said Meijer. "So my expectation and the expectation of some folks I'm talking to who are trying to vote our conscience on this, there will be folks that try to kill us, and that's something we have to grapple with every day."  Meijer added that, in turn, that threat of violence has compelled and will continue to intimidate some of his Republican colleagues into voting on...

    LOGAN SQUARE — It was a quiet Monday morning at Mozart Elementary School in Logan Square as very few parents dropped off their children for the first day of Chicago Public School’s in-person learning after nearly eight months of remote classes. Parents of a 4-year-old pre-kindergarten student who dropped him off just before class began at 8 a.m. told Block Club that it was a difficult decision to decide to send their son back to school, but that ultimately, they think he will learn better this way.

    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — With COVID-19 making its way up and down the roster, the Boston Celtics are in a precarious spot this week. If the team ends up playing its four scheduled games — and that is a giant IF at the moment — it could look more like one of those kid’s rec league games that you see at halftime rather than an actual NBA tilt. If you’re in playing shape and stand at least six-foot-eight, you may be able to finagle an emergency spot on the Boston roster this week. The Celtics are going to be extremely small over the next few games, and they could use all the help they can get. The team will be without its two rising stars in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown due to COVID-19 protocols, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The frontcourt is...
            by Robert Romano  President Donald Trump has finally had his Twitter account banned permanently, which had more than 80 million followers. He got his posting privileges suspended from Facebook yesterday. The account itself may not be too far behind. The purge has begun. Cancel culture is going to be worse than ever. You either bend the knee, and renounce President Trump — or your days on social media or in official Washington, D.C. could be numbered. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.)  just had a book contract cancelled. He and his colleague Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are being cut off by the GOP establishment and Republican donors, simply for fighting for election integrity in a process prescribed under law by Congress more than a century ago.

    Nina Dobrev Gets Sweet Birthday Message From Boyfriend Shaun White Inside Kim and Kanyes $100m real estate empire The NBA wasnt going to be immune to COVID-19 after making a deal with the devil The expected spike in COVID-19 diagnoses is eye-popping even with the acceptance of a deadly pandemic ripping through the states, and any thought of the NBA being immune was nonsense. You can’t make a deal with the devil and be surprised when the kitchen is burning. Two weeks after the most family-oriented holiday, a new round of infected citizens was inevitable — to which NBA players were just as susceptible to as everyday folk.

    After giving disco fans night fever in the ‘70s, Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees is turning to his first love – country music. The 74-year-old has released a new album titled "Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers’ Songbook Vo.1," a collection of Bee Gees music reworked as duets with notable artists from Nashville, including Dolly Parton and Keith Urban. The last living Gibb brother, who has kept the family’s musical legacy going as a solo artist, emigrated from the U.K. to Australia as a child. However, Gibb told NPR on Friday that he’s been passionate about American country music for many years. "Since I was about 9 or 10 years old," Gibb explained. "It was really in my system and it never left. Bluegrass music and country music is really what I care about more than anything else. Once all my brothers were no longer with me, once I was alone,...
    President Trump said Friday he "will not be going to the Inauguration" of President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 20. "To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th," the president tweeted. The president’s tweet comes after he spoke at a rally Wednesday, telling supporters that he would "never concede" and repeated unsubstantiated claims that the election was "stolen" from him and that he won in a "landslide." During his remarks, he renewed pressure on Vice President Mike Pence, claiming that he should decertify the results of the presidential election and send it "back to the states," claiming that if he did that, Trump would be president for another four years. Trump’s remarks came ahead of a joint session of Congress to certify the results of the presidential election. As members of the House and Senate raised objections to certain electoral votes,...
    As the Charlotte Hornets get ready to face the New Orleans Pelicans, there is one very interesting face-off to look out for. For the first time, the Ball brothers will be playing against each other in the NBA. This should be very interesting, as LaMelo was one of the top prospects in the NBA Draft this year, just like his brother Lonzo Ball back in 2017. The Pelicans are coming off back-to-back losses against OKC Thunder and the Indiana Pacers. Standing at 4-4, they will be looking to break that losing streak and add a W to their tally. Then come the Hornets, who broke their losing skid after defeating the Hawks and improving their record to 3-5. How the Ball brothers played back in the day As the game inches closer, Lonzo spoke about how they spent their formative years playing together. “Not really too much one-on-one; a lot...
    UFC President Dana White has helped build the UFC into the mighty powerhouse of MMA that it is today. The biggest MMA organization in the world, the UFC, sets the standard for MMA on a global stage.

    During a Thursday appearance on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) weighed in on the Democrats’ victory in Tuesday’s Georgia Senate runoff. The victories by Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff gave the Senate the majority in addition to the House majority. Cotton advised that with the “very, very closely divided Congress,” the GOP has the opportunity to “provide a check and balance” on the Democrats’ incoming “radical agenda.” “Obviously, I am disappointed that my good friends and great Senators Kelly Loeffler David Perdue didn’t make it across the finish line, but congratulations to the Democrats for their victory. This is going to be a very, very closely divided Congress. It’s literally evenly divided in the Senate 50/50 now. In the House, the Democrats have one of the smallest margins in modern times,” Cotton noted. “So, what the Republicans need to do now that this election is behind us...

    Come on, Jon, you can do it!Sue Dorfman/ZUMA 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.If Jon Ossoff holds on in Georgia and Democrats eke out control of the Senate, it will make life a lot easier for Joe Biden. It means Chuck Schumer will control the flow of legislation onto the Senate floor, not Mitch McConnell. It means confirmation of judges and executive branch officers will be a lot easier. It will mean that Democrats can use the Congressional Review Act to overturn Donald Trump’s last minute agency rules, just as Trump did to Barack Obama’s last-minute rules in 2017. But legislation is another matter. Republicans will still have the filibuster available to block anything that can’t get 60 votes in the Senate—which is just about everything. And several Democrats have already...

This Jan. 6, there are few tea leaves to read, as the pandemic has delayed the Golden Globes until Feb. 28, the SAG Awards until March 14 and the Oscars until April 25. That’s right, the Oscars will take place nearly a month after the start of Major League Baseball, an eternity for frontrunners to maintain momentum in an endurance race. Predictions feel premature with four months to go, akin to predicting the Super Bowl winner in September, but here’s where the races stand based on critics associations.

"There is a greater divide in the Republican Party than there is in the Democratic Party," Luntz said in an interview on CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Tuesday from Georgia. "The party is in the process of tearing itself apart and you don't do that now, when you're this close to the most important Senate election, literally, in a lifetime. Democrats are unified, Republicans are not and that's what gives them the advantage." "I think the next 48 hours are going to be among the worst for the GOP," he added. In Georgia,...

Playing Nate Sudfeld on Sunday night might have helped the Eagles’ draft position, but it apparently did not sit well with many of Philadelphia's players. © Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports Two offensive starters reportedly approached Doug Pederson to question him about his move from Jalen Hurts to Nate Sudfeld. The Eagles were trailing Washington 17-14 in the fourth quarter and had a chance to win the game. However, head coach Doug Pederson benched Jalen Hurts, who was 7-for-20 passing to that point but had two rushing touchdowns. Sudfeld, who is ordinarily the Eagles' third-string quarterback, turned the ball over twice and did not give them a chance to win. Perplexed by...
    Speculation is mounting that President Trump may be planning to a trip to Scotland to avoid attending the inauguration of Joe Biden later this month. Trump has been incredibly vocal about his disdain for his election loss and continues to dispute the results with claims of election fraud. Now, Prestwick Airport, which is located near to the president’s Turnberry golf resort, has been told to expect the arrival of a US military Boeing 757 aircraft that is occasionally used by Trump, according to the Sunday Post. The aircraft is set to land in Prestwick on January 19 – the day before Biden’s is due to be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States in Washington DC. ‘There is a booking for an American military version of the Boeing 757 on January 19, the day before the inauguration. That’s one that’s normally used by the Vice-President but often...
    Plant-based campaigners Veganuary are getting ready for a big 2021. The campaign hopes to get 500,000 people to pledge to go vegan in January 2021 as part of its push for plant-based diets. 400,000 people signed the pledge in 2020, a steadily growing figure year over year. While last year was a record, Veganuary campaigners hope to reach over 500,000. With the help of celebrities including Jane Goodall and Paul McCartney, they’re on their way. Another push comes from executives at UK multinationals including Nestle, who are encouraging their workforces to join.

    (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh Steelers were the NFL’s last undefeated team, winning their first 11 games. They’ve since lost three of four, including two games to teams with losing records. The Steelers have looked like a completely different team since the streak ended. And some of it can be blamed on the running game, or the lack thereof. The Steelers had a 100-yard rusher in four of the first five games and at least 100 yards rushing in all five games. Since then they’ve not had a single 100-yard rusher and topped the 100-yard mark as a team just once. But they’ve had multiple games with under 50 yards on the ground, including against the Dallas Cowboys (46), Cincinnati Bengals (44), and the Washington Football Team (21). These are all below-.500 teams. They haven’t faired much better against playoff-caliber competition. The passing games has been better over the last month....
    On Wednesday’s “PBS NewsHour,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) stated that he’ll only support Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s package to increase direct payments, repeal Section 230, and establish an election commission “if we target the $2,000 payments.” And stated that the payments can be targeted, but “it’s not going to be targeted in a day or two.” Johnson said, “Let me use a government employee, people that are making combined, a couple, $150,000 last year. They didn’t lose their job. They didn’t lose any income. If they’ve got a family of four, they’ll get an $8,000 check. I don’t think a couple like that should get an $8,000 check. So, there’s ways we can target this. And it’s not going to be targeted in a day or two. We should have been talking about this. We should have been considering this.

David Perdue (R-GA) and Jon Ossoff. “I certainly believe there is going to be transparency in the runoff election,” he said. “There is a lot of people that have volunteered. We’ve encouraged folks to do that. The party is engaged. I think with the focus that we’ve had in Georgia, that’s absolutely going to be the case. But the fact of the matter is, Shannon, we’ve had over 2 million people that have already voted in this election during the early voting period, so my message to people is the same one the president had when he was here the other day as people need to get out and vote for David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler to stop socialism, stop handing the keys...

    Conor McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh spoke out to ‘The MacLife’ and broke down McGregor’s training and weight cutting escapades. Conor comes out of retirement on January 23, 2021, and will square off against divisional rival Dustin Poirier in a rematch. The two met back in September 2014 at UFC 178, where McGregor starched ‘The Diamond’ in round one. Moreover, the aforementioned clash took place at featherweight, and both fighters have moved up and established themselves.

    Getty On January 23, 2021, Irish superstar Conor McGregor will make his highly anticipated return to the Octagon when he takes on No. 2 ranked lightweight Dustin Poirier at UFC 257. The bout will mark the No. 5 ranked lightweight’s first trip down to the UFC’s 155-pound division since fighting Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October 2018. Since then, McGregor has noticeably put on more muscle mass and his only bout after the UFC 229 bout was against Donald Cerrone at 170 pounds in January of this year. For years, McGregor cut down to the featherweight division, 10 pounds less than the lightweight division. And although he’s confident in “Notorious'” ability to make weight, the Irishman’s head coach John Kavanagh said cutting down to lightweight isn’t “going to be fun.” “It’s not going to be fun, let’s be honest,” Kavanagh said in a recent interview with The...

    The Philadelphia Eagles might be in bigger trouble under center after the 2020 season.  Three years ago, Carson Wentz looked to be the league MVP. His 2017 season was miraculous for the Philadelphia Eagles, ultimately setting them up for their first Super Bowl trophy in franchise history. The only question is, who would take Wentz’s lucrative contract? After signing a massive extension before the 2019 season, the Eagles still owe their “franchise guy” $98.4 million over the next four years. That’s to say if a team would be willing to eat a chunk of that deal.The 4-8-1 Eagles will travel out west to face Arizona Sunday. If Hurts thrives, the writing is on the wall for Wentz’s time in all but set. Although the Eagles have little to play for, they could be gambling with their future to close out the season.

    Getty Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs Stefon Diggs knows a thing or two about special wide receiving corps, he’s currently a part of one of the best ones in the NFL right now. But the former fifth-round pick out of Maryland also believes that the Denver Broncos could have a pretty special receiving corps as well. Denver’s top three receivers, Tim Patrick, Jerry Jeudy, and KJ Hamler have combined for 1,656 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns this season. Tight end Noah Fant has also caught 44 passes for 492 yards and two touchdowns. Together, they’ve provided second-year running back Drew Lock with a lot of viable options in the passing game.

    Madison Summers December 17, 2020 0 Comments President-elect Joe Biden is looking to governors across the United States to find a way to reopen schools “at the end of a hundred days” of his presidency. “I’m going to ask — and I know it’s going to be controversial for some of you — but I’m going to ask that we’re going to be able to open schools at the end of a hundred days,” Biden said during a virtual discussion with a bipartisan group of roughly 30 governors on Wednesday, according to The Washington Post.

    FAIRFIELD (KPIX 5) – As all Bay Area counties are set to enter a stay-at-home order due to ICU capacity dropping below 15%, Solano County’s health officer worries the latest order will not stop the surge in COVID-19 cases.

Public Health Officer Dr. Bela Matyas said the surge in cases and hospitalizations can be directly linked to Thanksgiving and he doubts people will change their ways for Christmas. “I think this is going to be a really, really tough holiday season.

    AUSTIN — Some West Side residents said they feel abandoned after a discount supermarket chain announced it would close a store serving North Austin, cutting off a primary option for fresh food in the area. Save A Lot, 5555 W. North Ave., is set to close permanently Saturday. The move has left regular shoppers scrambling and frustrated West Side elected officials, who said the company could have sought their help to keep the location open. Resident Linda Toles said the shelves have already been cleared out. “We’re already a food desert. So they’re going to close one of the stores? Their prices are lower than the other stores. So I don’t know why they’re closing,” Toles said. Like much of the West Side, some parts of Austin are considered to be a food desert, where residents must travel miles to reach healthy, affordable food. A lack of healthy options...
    On Monday, The New York Times ran an editorial from columnist Michelle Goldberg in which she let out a big sigh of relief. Donald Trump, according to Goldberg, tried to overthrow the election and was basically a fascist, but he “failed to bend the state to his will” so writers on the left who have, for the last four years, warned that Trump might destroy the nation overplayed the threat. On Tuesday, the Times followed up with a column from Bret Stephens arguing that none of the things people worried about actually happened. Hey, we didn’t have a nuclear war with North Korea, the free press is still there—even if Trump has spent half his time demeaning their integrity and sowing distrust, and the Supreme Court didn’t actually overturn the outcome of the election so … no harm, no foul. The problem with both of these columns is not just that they underplay the...
    Drew Angerer/Getty ImagesPresident Donald Trump has defended his retweeting of specious, outlandish and controversial tweets before, simply by saying that he was putting it out there, that he didn’t necessarily agree with the “white power” chant in a video he promoted, just thought it was worth seeing by his 80+ million Twitter followers. Nonetheless, the outgoing president still sits in a bully pulpit, and when he promotes the concept of putting in jail state officials, ostensibly over baseless and unproven claims of voter fraud? It’s kind of a big deal. In this instance, controversial pro-MAGA attorney Lin Wood claimed that President Trump “does not really like to fire people,” and a guess that he “dislikes putting people in jail, especially ‘Republicans,'” (with the political moniker in scare quotes for full effect.) Wood then noted that President Trump gave Georgia Governer Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger “every...
    A person wears a face mask while carrying shopping bags in Columbus Circle on November 28, 2020 in New York City.Noam Galai | Getty Images More than $766 billion in sales is up for grabs this holiday season, amounting to as much as a 5.2% jump from 2019 levels, according to the National Retail Federation. But even if this upbeat forecast — which comes in a rocky year for retail — is spot on, not all companies are going to benefit from the growth. The Covid-19 pandemic has pushed a record number of consumers to shop online, and big-box retailers such as Walmart and Target have seen the biggest benefits from the shift in spending. These businesses were also helped by being deemed essential, so their stores weren't forced to shut last spring. Others weren't as lucky. There have been more than three dozen retail bankruptcies this year, according to...
    George Conway offered insights on a fascinating question being posed in political media circles during a Monday night appearance on CNN’s AC360 when Anderson Cooper flatly asked, “what do you imagine [Trump’s] post-presidential life to be?” “I think it’s going to be continual grift and grievance,” Conway replied. “He is going to be trying to raise money, and trying to continue, you know, being the center of attention because he needs to be the center of attention, psychologically, so he’s going to keep, you know, stirring people up out there,” Conway explained further. “And probably, trying to hold rallies and trying to raise money.” Cooper asked if that strategy would get a lot harder for Trump “without having the presidential seal,” to which Conway agreed. “And there’s going to be the grievance aspect,” Conway continued. “And that grievance aspect is going to be, until his dying breath, he is going...
    ABC Hannah Brown’s whirlwind 2019 included her competing on season 23 of The Bachelor, leading season 15 of The Bachelorette, and winning season 28 of Dancing with the Stars. Unfortunately for Brown, that year of starring on reality television didn’t end with love. While she appeared to briefly consider joining Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor in 2020, she opted against it and instead stayed off TV for the rest of the year. But is there a chance she’ll throw her hat in the ring during Matt James’ season of The Bachelor? Don’t count on it. While Brown is expected to appear on the upcoming season, it’s almost definitely just a guest showing, similar to the ones DeAnna Pappas, Jared Haibon, Ashley Iaconetti, Becca Kufrin, and Sydney Lotuaco have all made on season 16 of The Bachelorette. Still, that hasn’t stopped some fans from following bread crumbs and...
    Sandra Lindsay gets Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine. The first COVID-19 vaccinations were administered Monday, in a true cause for celebration. “I feel like healing is coming,” said Sandra Lindsay, the critical care nurse who became New York’s first person vaccinated. “I hope this marks the beginning of the end of a very painful time in our history.”  But put the emphasis on beginning of the end, because while we mark this holiday season with real hope, this is going to take a while. And there are some don'ts involved. Unless you’re a frontline healthcare worker, you’re probably not at the front of the line for a vaccination—and that’s how it should be. Be patient. Wait your turn, and then get vaccinated when your turn comes. For healthy adults, that may be in April or May. And when you do get vaccinated—especially if you are one of the early ones—don’t immediately start acting like there’s...
    New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D) expressed optimism regarding the rollout of the first round of COVID-19 vaccines on Sunday, but cautioned that the next few weeks are “going to be hell.” Appearing on ABC’s "This Week," Murphy discussed the distribution of 76,000 vaccines in New Jersey. Host Martha Raddatz noted that health-care workers and nursing homes are first priority in receiving the vaccine and asked Murphy who would be next in line to be immunized. “We’re working through that right now,” said Murphy. “Remember, Moderna is up for their emergency use authorization this week. And, God willing, they get in. Then you’ve got not only increasing batches from Pfizer, you’ve then got a second vaccine coming online with shipments each week. And those larger populations will then be dealt with.” New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy says despite “good news” on a COVID-19 vaccine, “the next number of weeks are going to...
