    ERLING HAALAND will arrive at Manchester City as one of the hottest strikers in football. Yet while he has a reputation as one of the coolest finishers around, the same cannot be said of his taste in music...after it emerged he is a big fan of ABBA. 3Erling Haaland is a huge fan of ABBA's pop tunesCredit: Reuters 3The Swedish band may well be having their music blared in the Etihad dressing room next seasonCredit: Getty Haaland will start life at the Etihad next month after putting the finishing touches to his £51 million summer move from Borussia Dortmund. But the 21-year-old Norwegian could have a problem getting his own way with the dressing room sounds, if he tries to insist on the Swedish supergroup being played. His old Dortmund team-mates would regularly play ABBA’s hit "The Winner Takes It All" in the dressing room after Haaland let it slip he was a fan. And the club’s famous Yellow Wall of fans have also serenaded him. Read More In FootballTransfer news live Zidane 'AGREES' PSG deal, Poch set to...
    With many analysts nationally categorizing the 2022 season a “prove-it” season for Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, any failure of his to prove whatever “it” is could reinsert the Dolphins into pursuit of a quarterback next offseason. The Dolphins took a hard stance this offseason of backing Tagovailoa after previously flirting with the Houston Texans in trade talks for embattled quarterback Deshaun Watson. Now, they’re committing to Tagovailoa for 2022 — with a strong backup in Teddy Bridgewater — while giving him the organizational support, offensive-minded head coach and improved pass catchers, offensive line and running game he needs to succeed. Shortly after completion of the 2022 NFL draft, a number of way-too-early 2023 mock drafts are already out. While most have Miami going in another direction, at least one mock believes the Dolphins will be searching for a quarterback in the first round by this time next year. The Dolphins have some of the most draft capital in 2023, which is expected to be a strong draft after this year’s class received subpar projections. Miami has five picks in...
    A grand jury hearing evidence in the Manhattan district attorney's investigation into the Trump Organization's finances will reportedly not be extended when its term expires at the end of the week. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has previously denied speculation that his office was about to drop its high-profile investigation into the former president, but the latest twist offers the clearest hint yet that Donald Trump may escape criminal charges. Bragg inherited the case when he took office on Jan. 1 but quickly decided his team had failed to prove that Trump deliberately inflated asset values to gain more favorable loans, prompting the resignation of two prosecutors, according to The New York Times. As a result, presentations to the grand jury were halted earlier this year.  On Wednesday, CNN reported that people familiar with the investigation said the grand jury's term will not be extended. It could reduce the chances that Trump becomes the first president - sitting or past - to face criminal charges, although he continues to face a string of other investigations.  But Bragg has previously said that...
    The Sunday before the Masters is usually a sleepy affair at Augusta National, as the early arrivals check in and a cathedral hush settles over the place one last time before the gates open on Monday. Not this year. Not today. Indeed, if they were allowed, the American press would probably form a cavalcade down Magnolia Lane, checking every courtesy car for confirmation that this year’s field really will include Tiger Woods. Every fascinating storyline regarding the 86th edition appears on pause until we know definitively one way or the other. Tiger Woods has yet to decide on whether he will be featuring at the Masters later this week The game has a new world No 1, there is a real possibility the tournament might be missing its defending champion for the first time in 62 years, there is the usual fascination about big names and the state of their games, there is an intriguing women’s major taking place in California... none of it matters down here in this southern citadel until we know. It is understandable. The last time...
    Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York City, U.S., March 29, 2022. Brendan Mcdermid | Reuters The stock market is heading into what promises to be a volatile second quarter, but April is traditionally the best month of the year for stocks. The major indices were higher in March, but they turned in a weak performance for the first quarter, the worst since the pandemic. Investors have been worried about rising interest rates, the war in Ukraine and inflation, which was made even worse by disruptions in commodities exports from both Russia and Ukraine. Stocks are typically higher in April, and it is historically the best month of the year for the S&P 500. The S&P has been higher 70% of the time, and has gained an average 1.7% in all Aprils since World War II, according to Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA. For all months, the S&P averaged a gain of 0.7%. The S&P 500 was up 3.6% in March, and Stovall said the rally could continue. "I think we...

The Spurs boss keeps repeating the road back to those glory, glory nights for the success-starved North Londoners is going to be a long one. 2Antonio Conte's task of bringing the glory days back to Tottenham is looking harder each gameCredit: Rex 2Spurs are not getting the basics right and their top four hopes are disappearing as a resultCredit: PA But the way things are going it is looking like it could be a dead end. Conte appeared to be the answer to trophyless Tottenham’s prayers when he was drafted in to replace the axed Nuno Espirito Santo as manager in November. And the former Chelsea chief’s opening nine-match unbeaten Prem run undoubtedly improved his new club’s performances, morale, league position and chances of finishing in the top four this term. But Wolves’ 2-0 victory on Sunday condemned Conte and his flagging Tottenham flops to a third straight Prem defeat. It was the first time...
    (CNN)As Olympic mic drops go, China just raised the bar with a cauldron-lighting surprise that openly acknowledged the layers of political meaning at play. Amy BassThe Olympic torch entered the stadium after International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach's welcome at Friday's Opening Ceremony of the XXIV Olympic Winter Games in the hands of speed skater Zhao Weichang, the first of seven torch bearers, who emerged in order of the decade in which they were born. The torch relay finished in the hands of two Olympians competing in Beijing: One was Nordic Combined athlete Zhao Jiawen. The other, in a nod to gender equity and one of the political controversies at the center of these Olympics, was cross-country skier Dinigeer Yilamujiang, who hails from Xinjiang and who the Chinese state media said has roots in the Uyghur minority, whose plight has been central to the diplomatic boycott of these Games by the United States and other nations. As the two lit the cauldron together, the message was clear to the many countries who refused to send dignitaries to Beijing: These...

    The most memorable characters to be introduced in film sequels What Are the Best Countries for Pensions? © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins signed a two-year contract extension in 2020 that tied him to the team through the 2022 season and set him up to have a fully guaranteed $35 million base salary and $45 million cap hit. That would make up a sizable percentage of the team’s cap and that’s led to speculation about whether the Vikings will work on another extension that lowers Cousins’ cap hit while keeping him around for a longer spell. On Tuesday, General Manager Rick Spielman offered little hint about the team’s plans while saying that he and executive vice president Rob Brzezinski are always looking at long-term cap planning. “We’ve already looked at that two years ago. We looked at it this offseason. It’s all part of roster planning,” Spielman said, via the team’s website. “You’re always continuing to look forward where we’re projecting the cap will be next...

    DeAndre Jordan’s role with the Brooklyn Nets shrunk dramatically last season. Rumors are he won’t still be with the Nets when the season starts. DeAndre Jordan joined the Brooklyn Nets in the same offseason as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, signing a four-year, $40 million deal. At the time, his effectiveness had already declined and his addition was seen mostly as a nod to Durant and Irving and their desire to be surrounded by veterans they trusted. Over his two seasons in Brooklyn, Jordan has appeared in just 114 of a possible 142 games with his minutes per game, dropping to the lowest levels since his second season in the NBA. Between Nicolas Claxton, Blake Griffin, rookie Day’Ron Sharpe and small ball units with Jeff Green, it appears the Nets have other options at center they are feeling better about. Per Alex Schiffer of The Athletic, DeAndre Jordan’s time with the Nets is likely coming to a close: From what I’ve been hearing, I would be surprised if Jordan is a Net by the time the team heads to San Diego...
    Appearing on Fox News’ Special Report on Friday, U.S. Centers for Disease Control director Rochelle Walensky was asked by anchor Bret Baier whether she supports “mandating a vaccine on a federal level.” Baier had prefaced his question with a report that the Pentagon considers Covid-19 a national security threat and may require all military personnel to be vaccinated against the disease. “I want to start there,” said Baier, turning to Walensky. “Are you for mandating a vaccine on a federal level?”‘ This is how the CDC director answered that question: You know, that’s something that I think the administration is looking into. It’s something that I think we’re looking to see approval of from the vaccine. Overall, I think in general, I am all for more vaccination. But, you know, I have nothing further to say on that except that we’re looking into those policies. And, quite honestly, as people are doing that locally, those are individual local decisions as well. Her answer to Baier got some attention, and Reuters sent out a news item headlined “Biden administration weighing federal mandate...
    (CNN)Tesla is the most secretive automaker on the planet, so investors are always eager to pore through its quarterly report and conference call, when they finally can get more than tweet-sized morsels of information. The last two quarterly results have disappointed them. Shares have fallen nearly 30% from their record high set just ahead of its fourth-quarter report in late January, with more than a third of that slide in share price taking place since the company reported first quarter results in April. So whether the best performing stock of 2020 can get back on track will depend greatly on what investors hear Monday evening, when Tesla releases its second quarter results.Here are the top issues they'll be looking at:How are things going in China?Read MoreUnlike other automakers, Tesla normally reports only global numbers, and doesn't break down sales by country or market. But if it wants to assure investors, it may need to give details on its sales in China, which is not only the largest market for all auto sales but also the major market with the greatest...
    Q: It isn’t just drivers who illegally enter the express lanes on Interstate 880 that create the major problem. It’s also their speed: 90. mph or greater. … The speeding on Highway 24 is out of control. … When will the CHP start cracking down on out-of-control carpool cheaters on Highway 85 going 85 mph? Mike Evans, Frank Ramos, Linda Jewell and many more A: Beginning Friday, the California Highway Patrol and highway patrol officers across 11 other states will be targeting speeding drivers.

Speeding violations will be the target of law enforcement in California, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. “Excessive speed and unsafe driving are a threat to everyone on the roadway,” said Amanda-the-CHP Commissioner. “The CHP and our allied state partners will be out in force this weekend with the common goal of saving lives through speed enforcement.” In California last year, more than 500 people were killed and more than...

    During an interview aired on Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky couldn’t point to any data that says that it’s unsafe for fully vaccinated people to stop wearing masks and live their normal lives and stated that the agency is “looking forward to updating our guidance very soon.” Host Chris Cuomo asked, “What data do you have that suggests you need to go slow before you let people completely unmask and live their lives if they’ve gotten the vaccine? I know you’re waiting for the data to say it’s safe, but what data do you have that says it’s unsafe?” Walensky responded, “Well, you know, we know the data are emerging, have been emerging, with regard to the variants, specifically the U.K. variant, the Brazil variant, which is increasing here in the United States, the South Africa variant, now we have variants coming from India as well.

    A former Archbishop of York said it is a 'pity' the Duke of Edinburgh will be remembered for his gaffes because 'behind those gaffes was an expectation of a comeback' - but people were reluctant to provide one. Dr John Sentamu said the duke was always looking for robust debate and for someone to challenge him. But people had sometimes been 'too deferential to Philip' because of his status as the husband of the Queen, he said. The life of Prince Philip has been celebrated at church services across Britain today - the third of eight days of national mourning. The Duke of Edinburgh, died at Windsor Castle on Friday aged 99. The Prince was well-known for his politically incorrect comments, several of which attracted significant attention.

    San José State University athletic director Marie Tuite announced on Friday that men’s basketball coach Jean Prioleau will be let go. Prioleau, hired on Aug. 4, 2017, will not be retained after his four years with the school. His four-year head coaching record with the Spartans was 20-93. Prioleau sported an 8-62 record in Mountain West play. The past two years saw slight improvements by winning three league games each year compared to one in his first two seasons. “After meeting with Coach Prioleau, he was informed that the university is making a change in leadership in the men’s basketball program,” Tuite said.

    New York Yankees Analysis: Looking at Yankee pitching, depth will be key By: William Parlee January 25, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees significantly improved their pitching rotation in the past week. Less than a week ago, the Yankees acquired two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber and yesterday traded four low-level prospects for former Pittsburgh Pirate starter Jameson Taillon‘s services. Yankee fans now have something to be excited about, although there are risks involved with both of these pitchers who did not pitch last year. Taillon, after the trade yesterday, had this to say on his Twitter account: “Bittersweet day for me over here! Trying to process everything- have SO much to say to the city of Pittsburgh and my teammates. Also have SO much to say about this incredible opportunity and to the city/fans in New York. Thanks to everyone that has reached out! More to come soon.” Although there are tremendous upsides to both of these pitchers, there is risk involved, as I said. Taillon is coming back from his second...
    Savannah Rychcik January 19, 2021 0 Comments Co-host of “The View” Meghan McCain believes President Donald Trump’s legacy will reflect his decision to leave Washington, D.C. “looking like a war zone.” “Look, D.C., it’s not an exaggeration or hubris to say it looks like a war zone right now,” McCain said on Tuesday. She noted there are more U.S. troops stationed in Washington, D.C. than Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria combined. “If this is anyone’s definition of making America great, I don’t know who they are,” McCain added. She claimed Trump is leaving office with the lowest approval rating of any modern president in U.S. history. McCain explained it is lower than the approval ratings of former presidents Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter.

    PIKESVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland State Police will continue to be on the lookout for impaired or aggressive drivers this holiday season, even with an expected reduction in travel during the ongoing coronavirus. Troopers from the state police’s 23 barracks will be focusing efforts on impaired driving, aggressive driving, speeding, distracted driving and other violations. Additional troopers will be working overtime throughout the month funded by highway safety grants through New Year’s Day. An average of 145 people died from impaired driving crashes, 159 from distracted driving crashes and 32 from aggressive driving crashes between 2014-2018 in the state. More than 2,100 people were injured by impaired drivers, nearly 18,000 were injured as a result of distracted driving and 1,550 were injured by aggressive drivers in Maryland over the same span of time. Troopers are urging motorists to avoid impaired driving and plan for a designated driver or a sober ride home. Help us keep Maryland highways safe throughout this holiday season.
    We are in the last month of 2020 and we still don’t have the initial ATP calendar for 2021. 2021 is an eagerly awaited season as fans want to see the return of Roger Federer. His two knee surgeries during the pandemic break ended his 2020 season and now he returns to the tennis court after 13 months. In a recent interview, Federer said that he is eagerly waiting to play in front of fans, but he is skeptical around the unusual tennis scene that is prevailing because of the pandemic. “I want to play in front of all the fans soon, but I don’t know what the situation will be.

    3 catchers the New York Yankees will be looking at this offseason By: Alexander Wilson November 13, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditAs stated earlier this off-season, New York Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman made it clear that the catcher position will be reevaluated going into the 2021 season. Necessary changes will be made, as Gary Sanchez struggled significantly to take a step forward during the 2020 campaign. He finished the season with a .147 batting average and a 36% strikeout rate. He had a -0.1 WAR, indicating he actually was a weakness for the Yankees, given they replaced him with Kyle Higashiosaka during the postseason. Unfortunately, Sanchez has all the talent in the world but simply can’t remain consistent. Defensively, he is decent at times but struggles with passed balls and framing pitches. In addition, he strikes out an exorbitant amount and simply cannot be relied on as a contact hitter. While he does focus on the long ball, that one factor alone does not supplement all of his deficiencies. If you take a...
    Former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen predicted that the president will quit the White House early in a fit of pique over his loss and hide out at his Florida home, Mar-A-Lago, instead of attending the inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden. As Donald Trump continued to cast baseless doubt on the result of the 2020 presidential race and push baseless claims that widespread fraud cost him the election. Speaking with MSNBC host Ari Melber about Trump’s possible endgame scenarios, Cohen was dismissive that the president would put up any kind of actual fight. “Everyone needs to take a chill pill,” Cohen warned. “Donald Trump talks a lot of nonsense. The Birtherism. ‘I have my investigators there in Hawaii. Look what we found out.’ It’s all a lie, 99.9% of everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie.

    Pfizer’s promising new COVID-19 vaccine could become a logistical nightmare to distribute to Americans — all because of the ultra-cold temperatures in which it must be stored, experts said. The potential coronavirus shot will need to be kept at an astonishing minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit or below to actually be effective. “It’s unlikely that the average pharmacy or doctor’s office will be able to manage this vaccine,” Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of infectious disease at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, told The Post. Schaffner said the vaccine brings unique challenges since it’s not protein-based like most other inoculations. “Proteins are pretty stable and that’s what most vaccines are. They’re manufactured so they can just be kept in the refrigerator,” Schaffner said. But the Pfizer vaccine is “very different” because it’s formulated from a synthetic mRNA in order to activate the immune system against the virus, Schaffner said. If not kept at the correct temperature, the mRNA component “begins to fall apart and twist around in ways so it doesn’t become effective,” he said. “The vaccine is so fragile. This mRNA...
    TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) — An iconic tree in Baltimore County is coming down after experts discovered it was diseased. In the center of downtown Towson, at the Prospect Hill Cemetery, sits a historic tree. “It’s very visible to anyone traveling along this section of York Road, and it really represents the shelter that this cemetery gives families who’ve lost their members,” Ginger Mudd Galvez, of Prospect Hill Cemetery, said. Now, after about 150 years, it’s coming to the end of its life after experts noticed it wasn’t looking so good. They discovered there were insect infestation and fungus that attacked the tree. “We started working with arborists who treated the tree for a while, trying to be sure we could save it by June,” Galvez said. “We were looking at it thinking it’s on life support.” But when it comes down, the wood from the tree isn’t going to waste. Sandtown Furniture Company in south Baltimore will turn it all into furniture. “I think it’ll be smaller pieces that may make really nice desks or bookshelves or credenzas,” Will...

    Radio host Rush Limbaugh stressed the importance of this Election Day saying it will “determine what kind of country we have going forward.” “I look at the conventional wisdom and I make it a point never to follow it. It’s always wrong and it is groupthink. Why you want to go along with what everybody else thinks?” Limbaugh told "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday, adding he believes early voters could be eager to reelect the president and are fed up with the biased media coverage of the administration. “Everybody thinks it is a bunch of Democrats that hate Trump showing up because they hate the guy and they can’t wait to vote against this and that’s what the media has been telling us,” Limbaugh said.

    J.T. Realmuto looking for big payday in looming free agency, will the Mets be involved? By: Andres Chavez October 17, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditRight now, New York Mets‘ fans are forced to watch how Travid D’Arnaud wreaks havoc in every rival pitching staff he has faced with the Atlanta Braves in the postseason. It has to sting, at least a little. The Mets got relatively good production from Wilson Ramos in 2019, but he was below average in 2020, hitting .239/.297/.387 with a subpar .297 wOBA and an 89 wRC+. He improved with the glove, but regressed with the bat, and, at 33 years old, the New York Mets are unlikely to exercise their club option for 2021. As the Mets transition from the Wilpons to a new owner, hedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen, their sporting direction is expected to change. Without blowing everybody away and under the leadership of familiar face Sandy Alderson, they are expected to have more funds available to spend on the roster. That said, Philadelphia Phillies’ catcher J.T....
    CALISTOGA (KPIX) – A battle was underway to save the town of Calistoga, as the Glass Fire moved dangerously close to town. The fire was coming over the hillside, near the edge of Silverado Trail. A mandatory evacuation order was in place with the fear that the flames could reach the city Monday night. Calistoga Police were going down every street, trying to get residents to evacuate immediately. Linda and Glen Shaver say they just got the order minutes ago. They already evacuated once and came back, thinking their home wasn’t in danger. We had everything down. Brought the cats in. We didn’t take anything out of the car,” said Linda Shaver. A large glow of orange and red lit up the night sky just east of Calistoga. The flames were approaching the Motor Lodge and the fire was visible from downtown. For the Shaver’s, this brought back memories of the Tubbs Fire, in 2017. “We’re just exhausted,” they said. “We hear the term the new norm.” The Shavers are not the only ones who had to...
    Top Republican election lawyer Ben Ginsberg - known for his prominent role in the 2000 Florida recount - wrote in The Washington Post that after four decades of looking for it, his party has found insufficient evidence of 'fraudulent double voting.'  'These are painful conclusions for me to reach,' Ginsberg wrote in an op-ed published Tuesday, pointing to the 38 years he spent in the 'GOP's legal trenches.'  Ginsberg wrote that each presidential election day since 1984, he and other Republican lawyers would be staffing precincts looking for signs of fraud.  Top Republican lawyer Ben Ginsberg (photographed in 2012) wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post Tuesday saying that after spending nearly four decades looking for 'fraudulent double voting' his party has found little evidence it exists  Ginsberg also writes that mail-in voting and absentee voting are essentially the same thing, despite President Donald Trump trying to differentiate between the two - so he can resist Democratic efforts for more mail-in voting, while also voting in Florida absentee  Trump told a crowd in Wilmington that they should...

    LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said his government was prepared to be ruthless with even its closest partners over COVID-19 quarantine rules, after he was asked if France would be removed from the government's safe travel list. "We've got to be absolutely ruthless about this, even with our closest and dearest friends and partners around the world," he told reporters on a visit to Northern Ireland. "We will be looking at the data a bit later on this afternoon ... looking at exactly where France and other countries are getting to, and you know we can't be remotely complacent about our own situation."

    (CNN)For all of the distraction and uncertainty around this year's veepstakes, there was a certain air of inevitability around the selection of Sen. Kamala Harris as former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate, as confirmed in Wednesday's historic introduction of the full Democratic ticket. With robust credentials and solid support from the party establishment, Harris who would be the first Black woman, the first Asian American and just the fourth woman on a major US party ticket, was the odds-on favorite nearly as soon as she suspended her own campaign. And with Biden becoming the presumptive Democratic nominee at a time of unprecedented consciousness around issues of race and gender, the practical and symbolic advantages of picking a younger, nonwhite woman as his running mate were clearly magnified.Jeff Yang Biden held his VP announcement on the third anniversary of the march in Charlottesville, the horrific parade of torch-bearing white supremacists that Biden has cited as the primary motivation for his entry into the presidential race. "For me, it was a call to action," he said in his introduction of Harris....

    Roger Stone, longtime political ally of U.S. President Donald Trump, departs following a status hearing in the criminal case against him brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller at U.S. District Court in Washington, March 14, 2019.Joshua Roberts | Reuters President Donald Trump said Friday that he will be "looking at" a possible pardon for his longtime ally Roger Stone, who is set to report to federal prison in less than a week. Trump, speaking to reporters outside the White House before departing for Florida, said that Stone had been "very unfairly treated, as were many people." Trump had been asked if he would pardon Stone, according to reporters at the White House. The president added that other people he's accused of committing crimes, including presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, are still "walking around." "Who would have believed that one?" Trump asked before walking away from the press pool. Stone, 67, is fighting in federal appeals court to delay the start of his 40-month prison sentence for lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstruction. He is currently set to report...
