    Historian and author Ruth Ben-Ghiat told radio host Dean Obeidallah that Tucker Carlson is “one of the most dangerous people alive” because he’s “fully on board” with Russian President Vladimir Putin. On Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Dean Obeidallah Show, the host asked the  “Strongmen: Mussolini To The Present” author about the tense situation with Russia and Ukraine, and whether there’s a “divide” within the Republican Party over Putin and Russia. Prof. Ben-Ghiat chalked it up partially to a “generational” divide, with Carlson in the younger, more pro-Putin camp: Dean: There are some Republicans–and Tucker Carlson of course and [GOP Senator] Josh Hawley–and a few others who in the past said nice things about Putin like, “he’s a real leader.” But then there’s other Republicans who are really old time Republicans–they say Russia is our adversary and we gotta deal with these guys harshly. Do you think there’s an internal divide within the GOP or is there a sense one way or the other where they actually in their heart’s lie? Ruth: It’s a little bit generational and temperamental…China is a horrible authoritarian state...
    Jerry Taylor loved golf and so it was no surprise that one bright sunny afternoon in March 2002, he could be found practising his chip shots at his local course in Tucson, Arizona. Unfortunately for the mild-mannered 60-year-old frozen food salesman, lurking in the desert surrounding the practice range was a man squinting through the sights of a high-powered rifle. Poor Jerry didn’t stand a chance. The bullet hit him in the back and he died instantly. His assailant dragged his body about 15 ft to hide it behind some mesquite bushes, went through his pockets to find his wallet and then, inexplicably, threw it away without removing the $15 it contained. Taylor’s murder might have gone down in history as just another statistic in a country which records thousands of fatal shootings every year if it hadn’t later come to light that he was a victim of a psychopath who went on to gain infamy as the Washington Sniper. Now Taylor’s story — and those of the sniper’s other 16 victims — is being told in an unforgettable new...

A local business owner was shot outside a barbershop while sitting in his car. A few days later, a man was killed in a shooting that also wounded a 13-year-old boy. A 22-year-old inside a car was sprayed with gunfire at a gas station.

    Walking is good. No-ones doubt that. But why? Although everyone knows it, in reality almost no one knows what benefits a daily walk has. It’s easy to get carried away by an overly optimistic message and flag the walks as a panacea: good for circulation, for the mind, for self-esteem, for memory, for weight control… And, although it is important not to fall into sensationalism, the truth is that walking is one of those activities that has almost no negative aspect. Let’s see what scientific studies say about it. Walking is good for the body and good for the mind Walking is such a common activity that many people do many miles a day without barely leaving your home and without realizing it. Therefore, let’s focus the shot: when we talk about walking here, we do so thinking about the act of walking, that is, without specific intention of making a necessary movement. Even so, probably many of the benefits found can also be attributed to any walk, as long as it has an outdoor component. And what benefits are...
    At 8.46am on September 11, 2001, an impact like an earthquake rocked the south tower of the World Trade Center (WTC) in Manhattan.  In the Merrill Lynch bank's conference room on the 96th floor, walls shook and windows rattled. The lights flickered off and on. Tania Head, 26, a manager on the bank's fast-track scheme, was chairing a meeting when she heard shrieks from the corridor. She and her colleagues looked up. Through the windows, they saw black smoke billowing from the building opposite — the WTC's north tower. They watched a ball of flame rolling up from about five floors below them. People began to scream, to clutch at each other in panic or make for the doors. They grabbed their phones and began calling friends and relatives, begging them to switch on the TV news. A speck tumbled from a north tower window, and then another. At first, Tania took them for pieces of furniture, chairs or desks, flung from the burning building. Then she saw one was a human figure, its arms flapping, trying desperately to fly as...

    The leader of a US Cuban exiles group has slammed claims made by the founder of The 1619 Project branding Cuba as one of the most 'equal' multi-racial countries in the world, as 'ideological Marxist spin.'   Orlando Gutierrez-Boronat ridiculed the words of Nikole Hannah-Jones, who has come under fire after a 2019 podcast in which she claimed the communist country has the 'least inequality' thanks to its socialist government resurfaced. The Havana-born scholar accused the New York Times journalist about 'not caring' about Cuba, claiming she was using the country's 'plight' to promote Marxism instead.  'Her assertion that what she says is "equality" is largely due to socialism is ideological spin. That doesn't reflect the reality of Cuban history,' Miami-based Gutierrez-Boronat told DailyMail.com.   'There is a very simple comparison you can make that shows how wrong this statement by Nikole Hannah-Jones is,' he continued.  'Look at the central committee of the Communist Party for the past 62 years and tell me how many prominent black Cubans have been in that central committee. 'And then look at the republic that existed...

    New York : When the doctor Diana Singing-Sims went with her husband, a doctor of optometry like her, to the bank to present her business plan and ask for money to start it up from the entity. They received a response very familiar to Latino entrepreneurs. No. His plan was to open an optician in Chicago, a place where his parents, a Mexican and a Puerto Rican, had settled and met and had a bakery for 10 years. The idea of ​​Canto-Sims and her husband was for the optician to be a place where Spanish would be spoken and known among the Latino community in the city. The bank’s refusal did not leave them without a plan, but it forced them to make important decisions. They sold their house and bought the building in which the optician would be located. Upstairs there was an apartment for them. Besides the local they needed equipment. “When we went to see how much the glass counter furniture cost we saw that they started at $ 80,000 or $ 100.00 and my husband...

    While supporters of Donald Trump continue to claim that their deadly attempt to overthrow the United States government was “peaceful” more details are emerging that detail the waves of violence, hate, and sedition that rolled over the nation’s capital on January 6. Police are recounting pitched battles that took place at various locations around the capital. In those battles, Trump supporters sprayed police with chemical agents, battered them with iron pipes, even beat them with flag poles … all the while the crowd was waving “thin blue line” flags. Hampered by poor planning, isolated in locations ranging from the top of the Capitol steps to tunnels beneath the building, small groups of police from two different forces were often unable to communicate with each other, unaware of what was going on in other locations, and absolutely convinced they were the last barrier between raging insurrectionists and the mass murder of Congressmembers. Meanwhile, the forces they faced included other police and military members, who had been planning for this event for weeks, and who—as part of white supremacist militias—coordinated an assault with the...
    SAN FRANCISCO — After listening to an apology and pledge to do better from a city resident who admitted to unlawful gun possession Tuesday, a federal judge sentenced the man to 33 months in federal prison, the sentence recommended by the defense. The defendant, Edrick McCroey, 28, is known for a March 2019 incident when he falsely reported his daughter had been abducted after his car was stolen. But in this case, McCroey was facing gun possession charges related to an incident when prosecutors say he fired a shot into the ground during a daytime incident in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood. Before deciding whether to impose the defense-requested sentence, or grant prosecutors’ request for a 44-month term, U.S. District Judge William Orrick heard from McCroey, who said he spent his time in jail asking himself “why I made bad decisions that ruin my life.” “I’m learning as I go and realizing this is not the life I want to lead. I’m realizing how smart I am and how much I want to go back to my daughter,” McCroey said, adding...
    The Buffalo Bills Were One Of The Most Dominant Teams In The NFL This Season; But How Will That Translate In The Playoffs? By: Olivier Dumont January 8, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditSince the year 2000, the Buffalo Bills never managed to attain more than 10 wins in a single season up until now.  After three straight Super Bowl visits from 1991-1993 and a handful of dominating playoff appearances in the years to follow, the Bills fell from grace once the 2000s rolled around and struggled to figure out how to put together a winning season for the next 15+ years.  Ending their 17-year playoff drought in 2017 with a 9-7 record to show for, it was uncertain whether this was a sign of hope or merely just a fluke. But ever since 2017, a lot has surely changed.  Following a disappointing exit in the playoffs, the Bills decided to launch a full scale rebuild and invest in a new franchise quarterback, selecting Josh Allen out of the University of Wyoming with the 7th overall pick...
    Mitch McConnell told fellow Senate Republicans that his vote to certify Joe Biden's election victory will be the 'most consequential' of his political career, a new report claims.  The Majority Leader made the declaration in a conference call on Thursday morning, according to Axios, which spoke to one person who was on the call and two who were briefed on its contents.   'I'm finishing 36 years in the Senate and I've cast a lot of big votes,' one source paraphrased McConnell as saying. 'And in my view, just my view, this will be the most consequential I have ever cast.' He referred to the vote as a 'vote of conscience', the source said, adding: 'The context was McConnell saying we're being asked to overturn the results after a guy didn't get as many electoral votes and lost by 7 million popular votes.'  The call came one day after Missouri Sen Josh Hawley voiced his support for a Trump-backed plan to object to certifying the Electoral College votes on January 6.   McConnell and two other senators reportedly asked Hawley to explain...

One of the most touched-up makeup products out there? Concealer. That's why it's time to shop for long-lasting concealers. (And we mean truly long-lasting.) According to makeup artist and makeup educator DeShawn Hatcher, concealers tend to fade for three reasons. One culprit is your moisturizer application. "If you haven't allowed the eye moisturizer you applied previously to absorb, always be sure to blot off any excess before applying concealer," she says. Another culprit? If you applied an extra amount of moisturizer, it's harder for it to set properly before makeup application. "Use three or four dots and blend with the ring...
    Selling your home? There's plenty you can do to attract buyer interest, from a fresh lick of paint to decluttering the rooms. Then again, you could simply hire a mermaid. It might not be the first option that comes to mind but, when you work for The Oppenheim Group — Los Angeles' most glamorous estate agency and the subject of Netflix's smash hit reality TV show, Selling Sunset — every half-woman half-fish helps. The show follows an insanely glamorous group of estate agents as they attempt to sell some of the most luxurious properties in LA, some on the market for as much as $75million (£58 million). Former clients of the agency include Meryl Streep and Nicole Scherzinger and, during season three, Queer Eye's Karamo Brown was filmed looking for a home where, this being LA, he could hold wild pool parties.

    The coronavirus bombshells in Bob Woodward’s new book, “Rage,” due out September 15, are so explosive that they have somewhat overshadowed other important parts of the book — for example, the veteran journalist/author’s reporting on President Donald Trump’s foreign policy decisions. And Woodward, according to the Guardian’s Julian Borger, describes some of the ways in which Sen. Lindsey Graham, former Defense Secretary James Mattis and others tried to rein Trump in on foreign policy. “Rage” is based in part on a series of interviews that Woodward conducted with Trump from December 2019-July 2020. Woodward reports that on February 7, Trump told him that COVID-19 was five times “more deadly” than the flu — although he was publicly claiming, in February, that the novel coronavirus didn’t pose a major threat to the United States. Not surprisingly, Woodward’s damning coronavirus revelations have dominated cable news discussions of “Rage.” But other parts of “Rage” are important as well, and Borger notes some of Woodward’s reporting on Trump’s foreign policy decisions. Four days before the January 3, 2020 drone strike that killed Iranian military...
    Identical twins separated at birth in a cruel experiment have spoken for the first time about how they found each other after a chance encounter at a pancake restaurant. Melanie Mertzel had no idea she had a long-lost sister. Suddenly, at age 23, she found herself looking at someone she never knew existed - someone with exactly the same eyes, voice and laugh as her - her twin, Ellen Carbone. 
    Secrets are scarce in modern video games. And I don’t mean easter eggs that anyone with a working internet can find hours after a game releases — I mean actual, honest-to-god secrets. So it should come as no surprise that the Speedrun crew had to return to 1997 to find one. In the years when message boards and forum threads reigned supreme, something as innocuous as a hazy island in the 64-bit distance could drive players into a frenzy. Such was the case on the Dam level in the FPS classic Goldeneye 007. Through the lens of a sniper rifle, players could see a small pack of buildings across a large reservoir. Was it a bonus area? An allusion to the movie? The end point of some secret passageway hidden earlier in the level? With the help of GameSharks and noclip cheats, players eventually discovered what many had feared: it was nothing. Just a leftover production asset the team at Rare never got around to finishing. But at that point, it almost didn’t matter. The myth of the island...
    'Where’s the positivity,’ moans Prince Harry,' why is everyone so miserable and angry?’ I regret to say I laughed out loud when I read that line from the new book “Finding Freedom” which claims to be the REAL story about why Harry and his wife Meghan quit the Royals and Britain. It’s hard to think of anyone in public life right now more relentlessly miserable, angry and negative than the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Barely a week goes by without them whining about something or suing people. Scroll down for video  Meghan Markle and Prince Harry pose for a photograph in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in west London on November 27, 2017, after the announcement of their engagement They’ve become serial victims, intent on painting themselves as the most hard-done-by people on God’s earth. Yet the more they complain, as the rest of the world struggles with the very real hell of the worst pandemic for 100 years, the more they expose themselves as a pair of appallingly bitter, staggeringly self-obsessed, utterly deluded, and woefully tone-deaf...
    BROWARD COUNTY (CBSMiami) – Honor flight organizers got creative to celebrate veterans whose Honor Flight was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Honking horns filled the air as an Honor Flight caravan made its way around Broward County over the weekend to pay tribute to some of South Florida’s oldest veterans. Honor Flights usually fly veterans to Washington D.C. to visit memorials built in their honor but this time, the tribute stayed on the ground and it was all a surprise. Honor flight caravan (CBS4) “We have to be very careful, more careful than the normal populace, because our veterans age range from 50 to the oldest who is 104,” said Honor Flight South Florida Chairman Rick Asper. “It makes up for the 52 years. This is a welcome home that we didn’t get. I came home proud of what I did. And I know my brothers and sisters out there that are gonna have this parade go by and be as emotional as I am,” said Army Veteran Dennis Berger who served during the Vietnam War.

    After a few decades of extraordinary growth, there are more cell phones on the planet than there are humans - and keeping all of those phones supplied with data is big business.   The difference in mobile data costs between countries can vary enormously, however.  A new report looked at average data prices in 155 different countries around the globe and found a 30,000% difference between the cheapest and most expensive markets. A report on average mobile data prices from 155 countries around the world found the US was the 18th most expensive country in the world, with an average cost of $8.00 for 1GB of mobile data The US ranked as the 18th most expensive country in the world for mobile data, with an average price of $8.00 for 1GB of mobile data, according to the report, from VisualCapitalist.

    New York — Despite being one of the most successful artists, the interpreter does not forget where she came from and she demonstrates it with her humble home. The 73-year-old singer, Paquita la del Barrio, has been characterized throughout her career by her simplicity and humility. This is demonstrated by the house he has in the Colonia Guerrero, considered one of the most popular, and even dangerous, neighborhoods in Mexico City. In this place is located one of the properties of the interpreter of ‘Rata de dos Patasâ € ™’ who injected all his style into the decoration of his dwelling. In a tour he gave to the ‘Ventaneando’ program, Paquita showed off its colorful stained glass windows, which stand out for having the image of various herons. During the tour she shared her taste for collecting memories of her travels and even showed a painting that she herself painted and arranged. Its dining room is made up of a rectangular table with space for eight chairs that combine white with gold. In that room also has a large...
    (CNN)Microplastics have been discovered in the gut of an animal on a remote island in the Antarctic, raising concerns that plastic pollution could be prevalent in the region's ecosystem. A new study by researchers in Italy and Ireland found traces of contamination inside the gut of the "Cryptopygus antarcticus," a small invertebrate that lives in the soil of the Antarctic. The tiny creature is also known as a springtail and it is less than 1 millimeter in length, according to the scientists. In a statement ahead of the release of their study, the researchers said their findings constituted the "first field-based evidence of contamination by microplastics in Antarctic terrestrial animals." A graph showing the levels of plastic pollution found in the gut of the "Cryptopygus antarcticus."They made their discovery after testing 18 animals which had been found on a large piece on polystyrene foam in 2016 on the shore of King George Island, situated north of the Antarctic continent.

    Sen. Mitt Romney, a Republican stalwart, joined a Black Lives Matter march. Some NASCAR drivers, whose fan base includes legions of conservative whites, embraced the phrase. So did NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred and executives of all 30 major league teams. The mayor of Washington ordered the words painted in large letters on a street near the White House. Now, Black Lives Matter Plaza turns up in driving directions from Google Maps. Like many black activists, Sakira Cook is pleased by such developments but also cautious. She and others worry that businesses and politicians will hijack the slogan without any real commitment to doing the hard work needed to fight racism. "Black Lives Matter is not just a rallying cry," said Cook, director of the Justice Reform Program at the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. "It actually means you have to start to interrogate the systemic racism and inequalities that exist in our society and help to dismantle them. You must make sure you're not co-opting this for your own purposes." The Black Lives Matter...
    Wilmer Flores stood at shortstop at Citi Field, crying, during a loss to the Padres on July 29, 2015 when word leaked that he’d been traded to the Brewers —along with Zack Wheeler — in exchange for Carlos Gomez. The deal never went through, as the Mets were concerned about Gomez’s hip. The Mets would instead end up trading with the Tigers for Yoenis Cespedes, whose unfathomable home run hot streak helped propel the Mets to the division title. Two days later, Flores belted a game-winning homer in the bottom of the 12th to beat the Nationals and begin a seven-game winning streak that helped propel the Mets to the NL East title and a World Series appearance. “I don’t know if it changed my life,” Flores told The Post’s Steve Serby in 2017. “It definitely changed the way fans look at me. We’ve got to be tough out there, and fans don’t see that part of us, like the human part.” It’s rarely on display more than on that July night in Queens, as TV cameras showed Flores in...
    The 2020 college football season will be the most important one in the history of the sport. Never before has football mattered in this country as much as it matters right now. Never before have Saturdays in the fall been as important as they’re going to be in a few months.

    (CNN)For the better part of the last four decades, George F. Will has been at the intellectual center of American conservatism. Now he is calling for a full-blown rout of the Republican Party at the ballot box in November.While Will has harsh words for Trump -- "this low-rent Lear raging on his Twitter-heath has proven that the phrase malignant buffoon is not an oxymoron" -- he saves his true condemnation for the members of Congress who have enabled the President.

    Scientists have confirmed the existence of the exoplanet Proxima b, a planet just 4.2 light-years from Earth. Given how close it is to its star, Proxima Centauri, it could have liquid water, and "therefore, harbor life." Researchers said the confirmation of the planet's existence is an "important task," and were accurately able to indicate its mass – 1.17 times that of Earth – and its orbit, at 11.2 days around its host star. "Confirming the existence of Proxima b was an important task, and it's one of the most interesting planets known in the solar neighborhood," Alejandro Suarez Mascareño, the study's lead author, said in a statement. Artist's impression of Proxima b. (ESO/M. Kornmesser) 'ONE IN A MILLION' SUPER-EARTH DISCOVERED IN DEEP SPACE The astronomers were able to accurately measure the exoplanet's mass and orbit thanks to ESPRESSO, a Swiss-made spectrograph on the Very Large Telescope in Chile. Proxima b was first detected in 2016 using an older spectograph known as HARPS, but ESPRESSO's precision has proved invaluable, researchers note. "We were already very happy with the performance of HARPS, which has...
