    "We will no longer put up with your oppression in ANY FORM. Due to your lack of safety and support, you have forced us to do your jobs for you. We will NOT allow you to tell us what we are doing is wrong," the email continues. "If you continue to fail to protect protesters, we will continue to successfully do so. If you continue to harass us for doing so, you will be met with further action. This is your first and ONLY formal warning." Asheville police Chief David Zack released a statement regarding the email. “While Asheville prides itself on protecting free speech rights as well as people and property, the email received today runs counter to that spirit," Zack said Sunday. "Tomorrow, as we celebrate our nation’s birthday, there may be more demonstrations. As we continue to protect the public, we are asking for help from community members, demonstrators, and elected officials: if you see or hear any evidence of someone who is intent on committing violence, destroying property, or breaking any state...
    A NEW warning is being issued to millions of iPhone users as they may lose dozens of features. Apple revealed iOS 16 earlier this month, showing a new redesigned lock screen, the ability to unsend text messages and other features. 2A new iOS is coming out but you won't be able to use all of its features depending on which iPhone model you haveCredit: Reuters However, the new iOS will lose support for five older iPhone models, which isn’t a major surprise since older iOS versions - 13 to 15 - are all still supported on older models. But the new features that come with iOS 16 will not be supported on every phone, meaning if you want to be up to date, you’ll need at least an iPhone XS. The features Apple teased for iOS 16 will only work on iPhones with the A12 Bionic chip or newer, according to 9to5Mac. The chip first appeared on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

    Sao Paulo (CNN)Brazilian director Petra Costa says her Netflix documentary should serve as a cautionary tale for the United States and the world at large."It talks about the global phenomenon of how democracy dies today. Not with tanks, not with the military taking over," she said in an interview with CNN. "But with the erosion of institutions, the spread of fake news, huge social media campaigns perpetrated and maybe paid for by corporations interested in the demise of democracy." Her Oscar-nominated film, "The Edge of Democracy," chronicles Brazil's recent political upheaval, and follows the impeachment of a president, the imprisonment of a historical leader and the rise of a right-wing populist. Journalist Glenn Greenwald has been charged with cybercrimes in BrazilShe documents Brazil's still-festering divisions through a personal rather than journalistic lens, narrating events in the first person and using the political battles within her own family as a backdrop. The idea first came to her in 2016, when protests erupted demanding the impeachment of then-President Dilma Rousseff, accused of illegally manipulating government accounts to hide a growing deficit...
    There's a special kind of humiliation in politics when you have already been elected to office, are serving your constituents and after one term, you lose your party's primary. On Tuesday night, the notorious and wildly-famous-for-a-freshman-congressman, Madison Cawthorn joined that dreaded one term and primaried club. There is a specific sting that comes with such a short, yet full-throttled failure. I can think of one person in my home state of Arizona that had this kind of spectacular flameout -- former Congressman Ben Quayle, son of former Vice President Dan Quayle. Ben Quayle served one term in the U.S. House from 2011 to 2013 and faded away into the bowels of political history. I do not know Congressman Cawthorn and I do not wish him ill. In fact, he appears to have graciously conceded defeat to his Republican North Carolina primary opponent Chuck Edwards. But there is no way for Cawthorn to spin his way out of this huge embarrassment for him and his campaign. Politics is a rough, dirty, compassionless, relentless profession and he seems to have a lot...
    A WOMAN who had her period every ten days says she is now "forced" to choose between buying a home and freezing her eggs. Erin McDermott, 29, faces the heartbreaking choice after taking the contraceptive pill for 13 years - which "masked" her health issues. 3Erin McDermott, 29, discovered she had a hormone imbalance after coming off the pillCredit: MEN Media 3She started her periods at 10-years-old and they came every 10 daysCredit: MEN Media The student began taking the pill in her early teens after experiencing unusually frequent periods after they started at age 10. Despite her unorthodox menstrual cycle, Erin claims doctors never performed tests to find the root of the problem. After over a decade, she decided to stop taking the pill in December 2020 to give her body a break. Erin, from Coventry, then checked her hormones with a home test kit - and was horrified to discover she had an imbalance.

    The National Weather Service’s Sacramento office has issued its earliest ever red-flag warning, an advisory of conditions indicating high wildfire risk. The warning is in effect from 5 a.m. Saturday to 5 p.m. Sunday in the area indicated on the map above. It includes parts of the counties of Shasta, Tehama, Glenn, Butte, Colusa, Sutter, Yuba, Yolo, Sacramento and Solano below 1,000 feet elevation. The weather service said the area at greatest risk is along and west of interstates 5 and 505. The agency cited unseasonably dry fuels, gusty winds and low humidity. It elaborated: “Given the unseasonably warm and dry conditions over the past few days and the expected strong winds and very dry conditions this weekend, some larger swaths of grass in the Sacramento Valley could support relatively large or rapid fire spread.” Northerly winds of 20 to 30 mph are forecast, with gusts to 50 mph. Daytime humidity is expected to drop to around 6 to 12 percent both days, with “poor overnight recovery” to about 20 percent. The weekend’s temperatures, however, are expected to be...
    New York (CNN Business)The bond market is flashing a warning sign that has correctly predicted almost every recession over the past 60 years: a potential inversion of the US Treasury note yield curve. An inverted yield curve is often seen as a signal that investors are more nervous about the immediate future than the longer term, spurring interest rates on short-term bonds to move higher than those paid on long-term bonds. While the curve isn't inverted yet, it's getting close. That shouldn't be particularly surprising, given how Russia's invasion of Ukraine -- and its economic ramifications -- continue to weigh heavily on the global economy.Treasury notes are essentially a loan to the US government and are generally seen as a safe bet for investors since there is little risk the loan won't be paid back. These government bonds have seen a flood of interest in recent weeks, amid geopolitical uncertainty and tightening financial conditions -- the Federal Reserve said last week it is considering as many as six more rate hikes in 2022 alone. That's making investors lose their...
    A mysterious Ukrainian pilot who has shot down up to ten Russian jets had been thought to be a myth. But now the general staff of the Ukrainian armed forces have released an image of the so-called Ghost of Kyiv, alongside his threat: 'Hello occupier, I'm coming for your soul!'.  The image simply shows a figure in the cockpit of an MiG-29 fighter jet, with his face hidden behind a black visor and oxygen mask. But now the general staff of the Ukrainian armed forces have released an image of the so-called Ghost of Kyiv, alongside his threat: 'Hello occupier, I'm coming for your soul!'(pictured) The Ghost is fast becoming a symbol of resistance against the massive, but stalled, invasion.  Ukraine has claimed it has shot down multiple Russian aircraft during the conflict.  Putin had almost 1,200 combat aircraft before hostilities began, while Ukraine had just 124.

    President Joe Biden landed back at the White House on Thursday speaking on an iPhone phone with a golden presidential seal on the case as he warned earlier in the day there is a 'high risk' of Russia invading Ukraine in 'several days.' It's not immediately clear who Biden was speaking with on his cell when he landed on the South Lawn following his trip to Ohio, but calls with world leaders are usually kept on secure lines in the White House or Camp David. The smart phone was covered with what appeared to be a navy blue or black case with a golden seal reading: 'Seal of the President of the United States of America.' The call comes after a report emerged this week that Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff can't even text his wife, Vice President Kamala Harris, due to security concerns. Instead, the two correspond through their aides. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies and the Biden White House have dismissed Russian claims that they are drawing down troops from the Ukrainian border and insist threat is still...
    Russia is planning to hold a nuclear strategic exercise, UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said on Thursday, despite extreme tensions surrounding Ukraine. Wallace warned that the Kremlin's actions were heading in the wrong direction despite efforts to find a diplomatic solution, declaring intelligence suggested that Russia that Russia was engaging in plans for so-called 'false flag' operations as a pre-text for invading Ukraine, as well as carrying out cyber attacks and other destabilising activity. 'Despite the talking, the direction of travel is in the wrong way,' Wallace told BBC Radio.  'The Russians are still growing their battalion tactical groups... They are planning to start a nuclear strategic exercise soon, and indeed we see more activity elsewhere.' A Russian defence source also told news agency TASS earlier this year that the nuclear exercise, known as 'Thunder', would involve all three prongs of Russia's strategic nuclear forces, testing firing procedures from land, sea and air. Nuclear drills are held frequently in Russia, but the decision to proceed with such exercises in the face of the tension circling Ukraine will give world powers more...
    After Stephen A. Smith closed Monday’s First Take on ESPN by issuing a warning to Tiki Barber, the former NFL star responded on his New York radio show. “It is not worth my emotional energy to get bent out of shape about something that I have no control over. I have much respect for Stephen A. Smith,” Barber said Tuesday morning on his WFAN midday show co-hosted by Brandon Tierney. “If he felt affronted by a conversation that I was having, that wasn’t really about him,” Barber continued. “It was about how we have used an hijacked racism to make excuses for failing diversity initiatives – then I apologize to Stephen A. Smith.” Barber didn’t get “bent out of shape,” but the former NFL star would go on to condemn what he believed was a threat from Smith. “He is the prominent Black journalist on a major network, and threatening another Black man is not what this country should be about. Period,” Barber said. Smith’s gripe with Barber stemmed from the retired running back’s defense of the New York Giants...
    WhatsApp Disorder (Flickr Photo) After the EU issued a final warning, WhatsApp could soon be in serious trouble: it must act within a month for a drastic change in the way it explains its terms of use to users across the continent. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. EU Judicial Commissioner Didier Renders has announced a one-month budget to provide “solid liability” to the union’s concerns that users will not have “all the clear information they need” about providing their information to third parties under the new rules. The application was announced in January 2021. More inside- “WhatsApp users need to make sure they understand what they agree to and how their personal information is used,” Renders said. “I expect WhatsApp to fully comply with EU rules, which protect consumers and their privacy.” Following this final warning, the European Consumer Association (BEUC) filed a complaint alleging that “WhatsApp has been plaguing users with stubborn pop-up messages for months. This problem was first deliberately disabled by WhatsApp, which laid...
    AS the yearly tax season slowly approaches, taxpayers should be aware of the IRS' filing deadline this year. Due to the lingering Covid pandemic, the IRS has warned filers that they'll see significant delays in their refunds for the upcoming 2022 filing season. 1The deadline to file your taxes this year will return to it's normal dateCredit: Getty National Taxpayer Advocate Erin M. Collins released an annual report to Congress on Wednesday identifying the most severe problem facing US taxpayers. According to the yearly report, the critical issue is significant delays in processing tax returns and tax refunds.  The taxpayer advocate insisted in her report that there's "no way to sugarcoat the year 2021 in tax administration." "The year 2021 provided no shortage of taxpayer problems," she added. Collins said: "While my report focuses primarily on the problems of 2021, I am deeply concerned about the upcoming filing season.

    South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) on Friday reacted to President Joe Biden’s warning to the unvaccinated that “we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death” heading into the Christmas holiday. Noem said that with the spread of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, her state plans “on doing business as usual and celebrating Christmas.” She added that Biden’s “outlook is focusing on the negatives,” and the United States “needs hope” during the holiday season. “We plan on doing business as usual and celebrating Christmas,” Noem told FNC’s “Fox & Friends.” “I think the president’s outlook is focusing on the negatives. This country needs hope. They need to remember the promise of Christmas and the love they have for their families and friends and enjoy the season.” “We’re always concerned,” she continued. “We’re doing the hard work of taking care of people, letting them use personal responsibility to make the best decisions for themselves and their families, and then focusing on how we can get through challenging times together.

    A majority of Georgia’s Republican state senators sent former Sen. David Perdue a letter to request that he not enter the 2022 gubernatorial race before he launched his campaign, Axios reported. “Our GOP and state must be unified behind our governor with a positive message to keep Georgia conservative and moving forward,” 25 of the state Senate’s 34 Republicans told Perdue in the letter obtained by Axios. They said that he “made us proud” during his tenure in Congress but said victory in November was more important. Despite the letter, Perdue announced he would challenge incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp on Dec. 6. Former President Trump has criticized Kemp for not helping to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory in the state in the 2020 election. Thirty-one state senators had already endorsed Kemp in September, Axios reported. Perdue acknowledged he received the request when asked, but he said it did not factor into his decision to run. “It was kind of funny that they thought it might,” he told Axios. “This is what career politicians do.” (RELATED: Trump Endorses Former Sen.

    Storms coming to Hawaii this weekend could cause blizzard conditions on the summits of the big island with winds at over 100mph. The warning from the National Weather Service is in effect from 6pm Friday to 6am Sunday.  More than 12 inches of snow could be coming to the mountainous regions on the big island. The blizzard-like conditions are part of what's known as a 'Kona' storm. Those are a type of seasonal cyclone on Hawaii, usually formed in the winter from winds coming from the westerly 'Kona' direction. Kona lows often bring about wet and 'unsettled' weather. The summits of Hawaii's Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanoes both hit about 13,000 feet, which means that when cold fronts and heavy rains form, snow falls.  'Travel should be restricted to emergencies only. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded, stay with your vehicle,' the National Weather Service advised.  The summits of Hawaii's Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanoes both hit about 13,000 feet, which means that when cold fronts and heavy rains...
    Text messages between Elizabeth Holmes and her former lover and Theranos co-founder Sunny Balwani have been submitted as evidence at her fraud trial and reveal how she called him tiger' and 'my king', thought investors were injecting cash into their 'destiny' and argued over how she would 'emotionally transition' when they broke up in 2015 as the company headed towards ruin.  The texts are among thousands of exhibits that were made public on Monday by the US District Court in the Northern District of California, where Holmes is on trial for fraud.  Prosecutors say she and Balwani knowingly lied to win millions of dollars in investment to prop up Theranos, a blood test tech company, despite knowing that the technology was flawed.  They go from optimistic declarations of love in 2014 - 'This is our year. We can never forget it tiger... for our kids never forget who we are' - to panicked discussions in 2015 about internal staff complaints, FDA clearances and the 'challenges' ahead.    In July 2015, the pair discussed Balwani leaving the company.

    SACRAMENTO (AP/CBS13) – An ominous four-word message issued by California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s campaign on the morning of Aug. 5 served as the shock Democrats needed to take seriously a recall election that could remove him from office: “This recall is close.” Newsom’s warning in a fundraising email came just days after a poll indicated the once-popular Democratic governor who was elected in a 2018 landslide was facing the unthinkable prospect of losing his job in a state that hadn’t elected a Republican in a statewide race in 15 years.

The alarmist message was quickly incorporated into Newsom’s remarks on the campaign trail – he was in serious trouble, he warned.

    A personal trainer has revealed what really happens to your body when you give up carbohydrates, and the positive and negative effects you can expect when you cut them almost completely. Rachael Attard, from Sydney, explained that while a low-carb diet can be beneficial for many body types looking to lose weight, it can also cause some difficult side effects - including headaches, digestive issues and short-term fatigue. Instead of cutting them altogether, Rachael explained that a better approach is to limit your intake of specific carbs and time them around when you're working out so your body uses the energy effectively.

    Former Brexit leader Nigel Farage torched President Joe Biden for his choice to “unilaterally” create a chaotic withdrawal of U.S. forces in Afghanistan without the consultation of NATO allies. “The mission in Afghanistan was not purely an American mission, it was a NATO mission. We were the second biggest partner. It had been going on for 20 years,” Farage told Fox News on Thursday. “Joe Biden chose unilaterally without any consultation with NATO, without any consultation with us — your closest ally for the last century and a bit more — chose unilaterally to decide the timing and method by which American troops would leave Afghanistan.”  (RELATED: ‘Shameful’: British Veteran Defends Afghan Fighters, Torches Biden From Parliament) Farage expressed that Biden’s actions led to a bitterness among U.S. allies involved in Afghanistan. “This is not how you treat allies. It is certainly not how you treat a NATO alliance which since the late 1940s has done so much to preserve peace in the world,” he said. During the interview, Farage confirmed the reports that “Biden ignored Boris Johnson’s attempts...

    New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez expressed her disappointment with Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday after she said during a press conference in Guatemala that migrants should not make the journey to America’s southern border. “This is disappointing,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet about the vice president’s comments on immigration. “First, seeking asylum at any US border is a 100% legal method of arrival. Second, the US spent decades contributing to regime change and destabilization in Latin America.” “We can’t help set someone’s house on fire and then blame them for fleeing,” she said.

    (CNN)As the Republican Party continues to figure out what it looks like -- and what it believes -- in the wake of four years of the most radical president in modern memory, new data suggests that the outlook is dire.Gallup polling for the first three months of 2021 shows that 49% of the public identify as Democrats or Democratic-leaners, while just 40% call themselves Republicans or say they lean toward the GOP.That's the largest gap between Democrats and Republicans in Gallup's quarterly study of party identification in nearly a decade. The last time Democrats had a larger lead on party ID was early 2009.Now, that piece of data -- in and of itself -- is not disastrous for Republicans.

    Parents are being warned over the dangers of a popular chat website used by children as young as eight that randomly pairs strangers for one-on-one conversations. US-based Omegle, a rival to video chat service Chatroulette, facilitates private text or video chat sessions between strangers who speak anonymously using the names 'you' and 'stranger', meaning you have no control over who you talk to. Although the website says it is for users aged 18+, there is no registration or age verification process in place. Users do not even need to input their date of birth before they are paired with a random stranger to chat.   Child protection groups including the Internet Watch Foundation and the NSPCC are concerned about the risk of predators using the site to gather child sexual abuse material or to expose themselves to children. Omegle was founded in 2009 but has seen a surge in UK users over the last year.
