The tech giant is expected to launch its next phone later this year but some people think superstition about the number 13 might mean we skip straight to the iPhone 14. 2Some Apple fans think we won't see an iPhone 13 at all Some rumours even suggest an iPhone 12S could be coming out. Famed Apple leaker Jon Prosser is just one of the experts suggesting the 12S model is on the horizon. The theory for this stems from supposed leaks suggesting the next iPhone won't be that much different to the current 12 model and therefore may only be given an 'S' title.

    President Biden has had both doses of the Moderna vaccine, and he's still wearing a mask. Follow his example. When Pfizer came to the FDA panel of experts to plead their case for an emergency use authorization back in early December, there was one document that stood out among the rest of the information being provided. The publicly released information indicated that the vaccine was 95% effective, but nothing showed that as starkly as a single graph. That graph charted the number of people in both the vaccine group and the placebo group who had tested positive for COVID-19. On Day One, both groups begin marching upwards, with multiple members of both groups being infected just days after getting jabbed. Then, about 10 days in, something changes. The rate of infection keeps charging upward for the placebo group. For the vaccine group, it changes almost overnight from a 45-degree slope into nearly a flat plane. There are some members of the vaccine group who become infected over the next 100+ days, but they are very few when compared to the placebo...
    Hollywood powerbrokers are offering doctors $10,000 bribes to skip California's vaccine queues and get the coronavirus jab. One top Beverly-Hills medical practice claimed it has received dozens of offers from individuals - including entertainment stars - desperate to be vaccinated. The situation is so bad that one senior entertainment executive described it as like the 'Hunger Games' as the rich and famous 'fight for their lives' to get the jab and bypass California's sluggish vaccination rollout. Reports say some rich and famous people have been going to great lengths to skip the queue with private and boutique physicians, concierge health services, private flights to Florida for vaccine tourism.  Beverly Hills-based Dr Robert Huizenga, known for being actor Charlie Sheen's physician, told Variety his practice has been offered in excess of $10,000 by the elite who are desperate for the jab.  Beverly Hills-based Dr Robert Huizenga, known for being actor Charlie Sheen's physician, said his practice has been offered in excess of $10,000 by the elite who are desperate for the jab The rich and famous in Los Angeles, California, are...

    (CNN)As a personal trainer and yoga and Pilates instructor, I like to provide a wide variety of exercises and workouts that people can do regardless of their situation, health limitations or mood. So my clients ask me this question all the time: If I feel sick, should I exercise or rest? The immediate answer is complicated, but with an assessment of your symptoms, you'll have the confidence to decide more quickly. And, if the answer is to skip your workout, there is still an exercise or two that you can do to help you feel less sick. With cooler winter temperatures in full force, cold and flu season is here. On average, Americans have two or three colds every year, according to the US Centers for Disease Control or Prevention. This may wipe you out for seven to 10 days per cold. If you add in other symptoms, like an upset stomach, a fever or a cough, you may be looking at even more downtime. Here are the five most common scenarios if you've fallen ill -- and how you...

    With the coronavirus pandemic keeping many people at home, you may have the urge to grow out your hair. But according to GQ Magazine, stopping those routine trips to the barber or salon comes with some homework. First, hair stylists say you should not wash your hair with shampoo everyday. It is bad enough for any hair styles, but can dry out longer hair more easily. Instead, GQ Magazine says to use conditioner every day, and shampoo a couple times a week. Second, you will need to switch your hair products. Texturizing fibers and clays are good for shorter hair styles but won’t work as well for longer hair. Instead, GQ Magazine recommends lighter products, such as pastes and creams. They will lightly hold your hair together, but will also allow your hair to move freely. And if you need your hair to stay put, you can always use some hair spray. Hair stylists also told Vogue Magazine to change your diet. Nutritionist Maria Marlowe told Vogue that foods rich in iron, zinc and vitamins C and B are good...
    "Real Time" host Bill Maher closed Friday night's show with a message to both Trump supporters and liberals ahead of next week's presidential election.  "No matter which side wins on Tuesday, let's skip the civil war and go right to reconciliation," Maher began. "Thirty-four percent of the voters believe there will be another Civil War within the next five years and I'd like to remind them of one thing: America is a family and the definition of family is people who hate each other without resorting to violence. "We have to see each other not as mortal enemies but rather merely as roommates from hell," he continued. "If we want to simply exist, we're going to have to find a way to work together. ... So let's not have a civil war with the Trumpers. We're no good at war and they're no good at being civil." MICHAEL MOORE DOESN'T BELIEVE THE POLLS SHOWING BIDEN AHEAD OF TRUMP Maher stressed that "neither side" was going anywhere, mocking "rich celebrities" who always threaten to leave the country but "never do" and telling those...
    From dine and dash to dine and crash! A woman attempting to stiff a restaurant out of a bill tried to escape without paying for her food by crawling into the ceiling vent of the ladies’ room - only to fall through the floor and into the kitchen where police were waiting to arrest her. The March 2020 incident took place at an unnamed restaurant in the Western Canadian city of Burnaby, just east of Vancouver. Video of the incident was released on Thursday by the Burnaby, British Columbia Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

    USA Luge won’t compete in World Cup events until at least January, saying Monday that it will sit out the first four race weekends of this season because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Americans won’t slide in the season opener at Igls, Austria, on Nov. 28 and 29, then will also sit out races the next three weekends on a trio of German tracks — Altenberg, Oberhof and Winterberg. USA Luge’s decision means no American sliders in any sport — luge, bobsled or skeleton — will be sliding in any major international race until at least early 2021. USA Bobsled and Skeleton announced last week that it is skipping the first half of its World Cup season because of travel and health concerns. “Ever since this pandemic broke, we have maintained a commitment to the safety of everyone in the organization, with the athletes at the top of that list,” USA Luge CEO Jim Leahy said. “We are a group that’s geared and motivated by racing, so to take this action is disappointing.” USA Luge won 11 World Cup medals...

But what he said on Thursday’s episode of the highly unwatchable show “Undisputed” should have him out of a job, and it’s a move that should have happened hours ago. Here’s guessing the folks at FS1, who brought this boorish windbag over to their network to spew stupid things on a show nobody watches, probably won’t have the guts to do it, which is sad, because Bayless deserves to be booted out of the TV studio and into obscurity for the good of all...
    Nearly 30% of the House Democratic caucus was absent ahead of a critical vote on U.S. Postal Service funding Saturday. New House rules allow proxy voting, which allows lawmakers to cast votes on behalf of absent members. Saturday’s vote on a procedural measure so far included proxy votes by 68 Democrats and one Republican. The 69 absent lawmakers, who cast their vote by proxy on a procedural measure, represent 16% of the entire House, which consists of 431 lawmakers. The House voted on legislation Saturday to provide the USPS with $25 billion in additional funding. The measure also blocks Postmaster General Louis DeJoy from implementing service changes during the coronavirus outbreak. The missing lawmakers who voted by proxy include Rep. Joseph Kennedy, a Massachusetts Democrat who is campaigning in the Bay State to defeat incumbent Democratic Sen. Ed Markey in a Sept. 1 primary. Rep. Raul Grijalva, an Arizona Democrat, also voted by proxy. Grijalva announced earlier in August he had contracted the coronavirus. Democrats voted in May to allow proxy voting on floor legislation, breaking...
    DEAR ABBY: I read you every day. My daughter, the oldest of four children, and I had a falling-out because I paid for her education but she couldn’t be thankful. She was very entitled as a child, but it was important to me that she graduated. She’s a schoolteacher now. Jeanne Phillips  When she asked me to pay for her wedding, I said, “Will you be thankful this time?” She stomped out and said, “I’ll do it myself!” I learned today that she went gown shopping with my mom and her fiance’s mother and excluded me. I am so angry, hurt and sad that I don’t even want to go to the wedding anymore. I could use some advice here.
