    New York Giants: Andrew Thomas speaks on the start of his NFL career By: Cay North ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants took a gamble by choosing Andrew Thomas. The team needed an offensive lineman, but Thomas wasn’t the highest rated out of the prospects available at the time. The move seemed to surprise many experts and broke some predictions. But the Thomas pick was generally well received, and we’ve now gotten a chance to see Thomas in action for a pair of games after the Giants’ week one and two performances. Thomas spoke about this experience on Friday, going into the week three matchup with the 49ers. Specifically, he gave some insight on the...
    Is that where the Durham report is hiding? In the last two days, Attorney General William Barr’s Department of Justice hasn’t done too well in court. They’ve not just lost out on motions meant to stop lawsuits from Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, and Peter Strzok, they came just short of being laughed out of court.  But there’s a reason why Barr might have sent his team in front of judges without being adequately prepared, and it’s not just that he is temperamentally incapable of imagining anyone not simply being bowled over by his brilliance and personal charisma. They’ve been busy. The whole DOJ has been busy. Over those same two days, the DOJ wasn’t just in court defending itself against lawsuits from former employees claiming...

    By Heather Hollingsworth, Nicky Forster and Jocelyn Noveck | Associated Press MISSION, Kan. — It began with devastation in the New York City area, followed by a summertime crisis in the Sun Belt. Now the coronavirus is striking cities with much smaller populations in the heartland, often in conservative corners of America where anti-mask sentiment runs high. The spread has created new problems at hospitals, schools and colleges in the Midwest, as well as in parts of the West. Wisconsin is averaging more than 2,000 new cases a day over the last week, compared with 675 three weeks earlier. Hospitalizations in the state are at the highest level since the outbreak took hold in the U.S. in March....

    As cases begin to rise again, UK supermarkets are re-introducing purchase limits on products to stem the potential waves of panic buying. On Friday, a national survey by the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimated that there were 9,600 new cases a day in the UK in the first week of September 19 – three times more than those taken by the tests.

It has seen Tesco ration items from supermarket companies such as toilet paper, baby wipes, flour and dry pasta.

    As cases and deaths from COVID-19 come in fewer numbers around California, some harder-hit counties are beginning to come close to the Bay Area. Statewide, there was little change in the seven-day average of new infections and fatalities reported each day, though both figures were lower than where they were two weeks ago and significantly below their respective peaks. The 3,274 new cases and 85 deaths reported by county health departments Thursday kept each seven-day average about even — just over 3,500 cases and just below 84 deaths per day over the past week, according to data compiled by this news organization. The 587 total fatalities reported over the past seven days were the fewest over any seven-day period since...

    The college football Week 4 schedule provides some intriguing matchups, with the SEC’s best finally getting started. However, some of the best matchups are elsewhere. The college football schedule gets a little bit better this weekend, with the SEC finally getting started, and while it will be nice to see the likes of Georgia, Florida, and Alabama gracing television screens again, the conference’s elite teams are positioned to roll in Week 1. No. 8 Auburn and No. 23 Kentucky should provide a good game, but no dedicated fans are overlooking that matchup.

    It’s that time again. No, not pumpkin spice season. It’s the annual pizza wine review. There are two simple rules when it comes to picking a pizza wine. “Pizza wines” by definition — at least my definition — should be full of flavor and cost less than the actual pizza, so generally less than $20. In an attempt to help reduce the stress of having to make one more decision at the end of a busy day, here are four perfect picks to pair with pizza. My wife loves white pizzas — particularly with caramelized onions.

    SergeI Torop got a rude awakening this week when the Russian secret police mounted a dawn raid on his home in a remote part of Siberia. Four helicopters and dozens of heavily armed troops in a fleet of vans and buses descended on the hamlet of Petropavlovka, 2,600 miles east of Moscow. Within minutes they had located their target and masked men in camouflage gear bundled the handcuffed Torop into a waiting chopper, as others with machine guns kept his associates at bay. The unusual aspect of the operation was that Torop, 59, was not a murderer, or an oligarch wanted for tax fraud, but a former traffic cop known as the 'Jesus of Siberia', whose Church Of The Last...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — High temperatures in Chicago will gradually climb through the weekend, reaching the low to mid 80s on Saturday before a cold front moves in. High clouds keep drifting our way from the south, and smoke from the West Coast wildfires will continue hanging in the mid levels of the atmosphere, all keeping skies hazy today, with temperatures reaching the upper 70s.

    When the Pac-12 announced its partnership with Quidel Corp. for point-of-care tests on Sept. 3 — the Thursday before Labor Day — commissioner Larry Scott described the deal as a “game changer” for the conference. Considering the sweeping consequences of not playing football this year, that was an understatement. The access to rapid-result Covid-19 antigen tests that could be administered before practice and games solved the first of two daunting challenges (keeping the players safe) and provided vital momentum to eventually clearing the second (convincing officials in California and Oregon to ease health restrictions). That evening, I mentioned the deal to my wife. “That’s great,” she said, “but why is the Pac-12 getting those tests? Why aren’t they going to...

    (CNN)A new clash between Donald Trump's political goals and his duties to public health threatens to deprive America of presidential leadership in the critical weeks that will decide if a second wave of Covid-19 swamps the country this winter.As the US death toll from the pandemic passed 200,000, Dr. Anthony Fauci warned Tuesday that he was worried that the high base level of infections could make it difficult to keep the virus under control in the colder months.While the government's top infectious diseases specialist, who has been marginalized by Trump, said serious trouble was not "inevitable," he added at the Citizen by CNN conference that "it's not acceptable to not realize that we are entering into a risk period and...

    During a Monday interview with New York Times journalist Kara Swisher on her podcast, Sway, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested that Donald Trump could be impeached at some point in the near future. The comment came after Swisher pushed Pelosi to commit to using more of her legislative authority to fight against Trump and the Republican Party’s agenda. “What is your power to do this?” Swisher asked. “I get the election, but you can get up more. You can speak out more. You can do more impeachments, things like that. Do you have enough power? “Well, we can impeach him every day of the week for anything he does,” Pelosi responded. When pressed on why she hasn’t taken this course...

    The Yankees have extra incentive in their next seven games because they are all against AL East foes — the Red Sox and Blue Jays — and the results of those games could impact where they play the first round of the playoffs. The Yankees went into the weekend one game behind the Twins for the fourth seed in the AL. The teams are not locked into fourth and fifth seeds, but it is their likely outcome with a week-plus left in the regular season. Whichever team finishes fourth gets all the games in the best-of-three in their home park in a 4-5 matchup. The Twins are 21-5 this year at Target Field and the Yankees are 21-7 in...

    (CBSMiami)- The season opener for the Dolphins had some good and some bad. In a 21-11 loss to the Patriots, the defense allowed just 155 yards through the air and 21 points. But, they gave up 217 yards on the ground at a 5.2-yard-per-carry clip. Offense was a bigger issue, with Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing for just 191 yards and three interceptions. And the running game was unable to get anything going, averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. But, in limited action, running back Myles Gaskin showed some promise, averaging 4.4 yards per tote. Overall, it’s an 0-1 start for the team and another September loss as SportsLine analyst Larry Hartstein points out, September has not been their month. “The thing...

More specifically, the defense is moving towards being a unit that is once again feared, which was a staple of Pete Carroll’s team when the Seahawks went on their 2014 Super Bowl run. During his weekly press conference, Carroll admitted the Seahawks want their opponents to know “we’re coming out to knock the hell out of you when you play us.” “The nature of these guys, they’re going for it,” Carroll explained, per Seahawks.com. “I love it. I love the way we were able to show first...

Sterling made it look easy and added a front flip for good measure before hopping aboard a Manhattan-bound L train that rolled into the station, taking his COVID-19 mask off...
    Barring a miraculous recovery, it appears that the Mets have seen the last of Jed Lowrie. Asked for an update on the status of the oft-injured infielder on Wednesday, manager Luis Rojas said he has “no idea what his progression is,” a week after he offered a similar nonanswer. A source confirmed that Lowrie is back home in Houston, since he can’t do baseball activities while receiving platelet-rich plasma injections in his injured left knee and seeing if they will provide relief. On July 30, the Mets announced Lowrie was dealing with PCL laxity in his left knee, which general manager Brodie Van Wagenen described as looseness in the joint that causes destabilization. There has been nothing new from...
