    Donald Trump's attorneys urged a court to allow the special master to proceed with reviewing the 11,000 documents seized from Mar-a-Lago, arguing he could experience irreparable damage without the review. The arguments come as the Justice Department appealed the decision to let special master U.S. District Judge Raymond Dearie review the documents found at Mar-a-Lago. In arguing that the special master's appointment be upheld on Thursday, attorneys James Trusty and Christopher Kise characterized the Justice Department's investigation as 'unprecedented' and as being carried out by 'the administration of his political rival.' The current appeal is the latest in a back and forth of appeals which have dogged the investigation into the hundreds of documents - purported to be confidential government records illegally taken by Trump to his Florida home - seized by the FBI in August. Trump's attorneys have argued that many of the documents seized by the FBI were merely personal documents, and that the Justice Department is trying to 'criminalize' Trump for possessing his own 'personal records.' They have also argued that the contents of personal documents seized in the raid...
    WE all know not to look directly at the sun. But according to doctors, looking at your phone on a sunny day can be just as dangerous for your eyes. 1nullCredit: Getty Two young patients have suffered serious retinal damage after being caught out by the sun's powerful reflection while looking at the screen on their device. The retina is the layer of tissue in the back of the eye that is most sensitive to light. It's the part of the eye responsible for fine-detail vision that we need for tasks like reading. Both patients were sure they didn't look at the sun directly, leading medics to the conclusion that the sun's glare, reflected off their phones, was responsible for their eye damage.

    Lenyn Sosa expected a fastball. But when Kansas City Royals starter Jonathan Heasley threw him a curveball on a 1-1 pitch in the third inning Tuesday at Kauffman Stadium, Sosa quickly reacted. The result: a 428-foot home run, the first of his major-league career. The Chicago White Sox recalled the infielder from Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday, and he had two hits during his first action since returning in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader, helping the Sox to a 3-2 victory. “Since the moment they told me I was coming here, I was really focused on doing everything in my power to help this team,” Sosa said through an interpreter after the game. “(Tuesday) was one of those days. That’s what I’m planning to do — try to help this team as much as I can.” The Sox will need the contributions as they try to navigate the next few weeks without shortstop Tim Anderson. The two-time All-Star went on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a sagittal band tear on the middle finger of his left hand. He will undergo...
    A mourning family at a funeral of an elderly woman got slammed into by vehicle driven by an uninvited family member at a Northern California cemetery on Saturday. The uninvited attendee, who may be the son of the deceased woman, was allegedly fighting with his sister at Rolling Hills Memorial Park the time of the incident. The son then got into his car and attempted to hit his sister. Instead the unidentified man hit another funeral attendee who suffered injuries. 'It appeared to be family drama,' a Richmond Police Department spokesperson told DailyMail.com. 'The suspect was hit with a cane...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — For a year, U.S. officials have been saying that taking out a terrorist threat in Afghanistan with no American troops on the ground would be difficult but not impossible. Last weekend, the U.S. did just that — killing al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri with a CIA drone strike. Other high-profile airstrikes in the past had inadvertently killed innocent civilians. In this case, the U.S. carefully chose to use a type of Hellfire missile that greatly minimized the chance of other casualties. Although U.S. officials have not publicly confirmed which variant of the Hellfire was used, experts and others familiar with counterterrorism operations said a likely option was the highly secretive Hellfire R9X — know by various nicknames, including the “knife bomb” or the “flying Ginsu.” That potential use of the R9X, said Klon Kitchen, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a former intelligence analyst, suggests the U.S. wanted to kill al-Zawahri with “limited likelihood of collateral death and destruction and for other relevant political reasons.” A look at the Hellfire, and how al-Zawahri likely...

    Ripley's has furiously denied that Kim Kardashian 'damaged' Marilyn Monroe's dress at the Met Gala - but admitted it still allowed the gown to be worn by the reality star despite having 'concerns about its fragility.' In a statement released on Thursday, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! - who had acquired the iconic dress in 2016 - said it 'can say with confidence' that Kardashian, 41, did not 'cause damage' to various parts of gown which have recently been brought into question by fans. Before and after pictures emerged online last week - which seemed to show a tear on the right strap of the dress, as well as stretching at the seem and missing gems from the back of it.  While the company claimed that the damage done to the stitching and crystals happened long before Kardashian got her hands on the dress, it did not mention anything about the tear in the strap in its statement. And when pressed further about it by DailyMail.com, a Ripley's spokesperson admitted that there were fears over the 'fragility' of the strap when...
    Too much screen time can not only damage your eyes, but the rest of your body processes as well - even potentially shortening your lifespan - experts warn. Researchers at the Buck Institute, a Bay Area nonprofit that investigates matters related to aging and age-related disease, found that light exposure to the eyes can disrupt the circadian rhythm, and as a result, cause or worsen chronic disease. Because the eyes are constantly exposed to the outside world - unlike many other organs - their immune defenses are more active. Over-active defenses can disrupt internal body processes, and cause harm to other organs as a result. As screen time among almost all humans increases - a natural part of the digital world - researchers are warning that too much light exposure every day can have disastrous long-term consequences. Researchers found that too much light exposure can not only damage a person's eyes, but also disrupt the circadian rhythms of the body's cells and even shorten a lifespan (file photo)  'Staring at computer and phone screens, and being exposed to light pollution...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — There was a fire Saturday morning at the Sacramento Drive-In Theater off of Oates Drive, said the Sacramento Metro Fire Department. Crews responded to the call around 7 a.m. and they did a quick knock down of the fire. Significant damage was done to the first floor of the building, however, no one was injured. The second floor, where the projectors are housed was barely damaged. The second floor is where the expensive projectors are stored, and because they weren’t damaged, the business expects to reopen soon. The cause of the fire is currently unknown and there was no sign of any forced entry into the building. Very tragic, but there is a bright light… The projector room had very little smoke damage, so all projectors appear to be saved.

    President Biden aimed a dig at coronavirus vaccine skeptic Aarons Rodgers while touring tornado damage in Kentucky today, telling local Packers fans that the quarterback should 'go get vaccinated.' While turning his back to the cameras, Biden was wrapping up a conversation with two women, patting one of them, who was wearing Green Bay Packers gear on the back and telling her: 'Tell your quarterback he's got to get the vaccine.'  CBS News reporter Ed O'Keefe tweeted the moment and said Biden, who's is an avid Packers fan, made the quip while wrapping up the conversation, much to the amuse of the two women. The president's personal plea to his favorite team's star quarterback comes a month after Rodgers admitted he had not been vaccinated against COVID-19, despite telling reporters in August that he was 'immunized'. The 38-year-old athlete tested positive for COVID in early November, at which time it became known he was not vaccinated. He missed the following against the Kansas City Chiefs, which the Packers lost 13-7 with Jordan Love filling in as quarterback.  Rodgers was heavily...
    Prince Andrew was pictured making the most of the autumnal weather this morning, enjoying a horse ride around the grounds of Windsor Castle. The Duke of York, 61, who lives at the Royal Lodge just three miles away from the Berkshire residence, appeared in good spirits as he donned a blue coat and helmet for his journey, accompanied by a female groom. His early morning ride comes after a royal expert claimed sheltering Prince Andrew at Balmoral and 'privately funding his fight against US sex abuse lawsuit' is damaging the Queen's image. The Duke  is being sued in New York by Virginia Giuffre, now 38, who claims he sexually abused her on three separate occasions when she was 17 — in London, New York and on billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein's Caribbean island.  Prince Andrew was pictured making the most of the autumnal weather this morning, enjoying a horse ride around the grounds of Windsor Castle The Duke of York, 61, who lives at the Royal Lodge just three miles away from the Berkshire residence, appeared in good spirits as he donned a...
    Emily Ratajkowski has revealed that she waited almost ten years to publicly accuse Robin Thicke of sexually assaulting her on the set of his Blurred Lines video out of fear that 'complaining' about the singer would damage her career and her dreams of becoming 'famous'.  The 30-year-old supermodel has accused Thicke, 44, of groping her bare breasts while they were filming the music video for his controversial hit back in 2013, publishing her claims in an upcoming book, My Body, and alleging that the singer was 'a little drunk' when he 'cupped' her chest with his hands.  Ratajkowski's recollection of the assault was made public on Saturday and she has now broken her silence on the controversy for the first time, telling People that she kept quiet about the incident for so many years because she was an 'unknown model' at the time and didn't want to do anything that might ruin her career. 'I was an unknown model and if I had spoken out or complained, I would not be where I am today, I would not be famous,'...
    5 km long landslide on Mars Now, just as landslides cause damage on Earth, so do landslides on Mars. This landslide was recorded for the first time by the Exo-Mars Orbiter.

    OAKDALE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A once-historic gem on Long Island’s South Shore is being picked apart and damaged by vandals. Residents near the former Dowling College say once the school went belly-up, historic buildings were not being protected by the new owners, CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported Monday. Every night, Oakdale residents walk the sprawling land that was once Dowling College, and almost every night they say they discover and repair heartbreaking vandalism. “It’s disheartening. I feel like I’m gonna cry. The damage inside is beyond what you can imagine,” resident Al Kulfan said. FLASHBACK: Bankrupt Dowling College’s Campus Goes Up For Auction In Suffolk County Built in 1901, the 110-room mansion named Idle Hour was a Long Island jewel, the summer estate of William Vanderbilt. Years later, it became Dowling College, which went bankrupt. Since then, things have gotten worse on the property. “It’s sad. Every night when we walk there is more damage, there’s more destruction, more vandalism,” Neighborhood Watch member David Chan said.

    New Orleans Saints star Michael Thomas appears to have some issues going on. The Saints and Thomas seem to be at odds after he reportedly ignored calls about his injured ankle during the offseason, and it now looks like the team’s great offensive weapon might want to escalate the situation.

You save theirs by not telling your side of the story.” pic.twitter.com/frSOCaKHSs — Michael Thomas (@Cantguardmike) August 9, 2021 For those of you who don’t know, Thomas’ issues with the Saints are likely tied to an ankle injury that he didn’t get fixed until June, according to CBS Sports. There’s no timeline for when Thomas will return to the field, and it now seems like he has some scores to settle. The first part of the tweet doesn’t mean much. It’s the second part that should have the Saints concerned. It seems like he’s saying he knows where the bodies are buried and a reckoning might be coming....
    A former Olympic gymnast has spoken out to slam the 'abuse' she endured at the hands of her Team USA coaches, while detailing the long-lasting 'damage' their 'dangerous' tactics have left her with - more than two decades after she helped her team to win gold at the 1996 Games.  Dominique Moceanu, now 39, was just 14 years old when she competed for the US at the Olympics in Atlanta as a member of the gold-winning Magnificent Seven.  But while many remember the team - which included stars like Kerri Strug, Dominique Dawes, and Shannon Miller - for their historic gold medal win, Moceanu is now revealing the horrific 'abuse' they were being subjected to behind the scenes.  Speaking to DailyMail.com, the retired Ohio-based gymnast, who now runs her own training center and was recently named as a spokesperson for nutrition company Purely Inspired, recalled how she was routinely labeled 'fat' by her coaches, who, she says, restricted her food intake while subjecting her to physical and emotional 'abuse'.  'Our coaches told us, don’t eat, you're fat,' she shared.

    A Florida building inspector who assured residents of the collapsed tower that it was in good shape a month after being warned otherwise is having all of his previous work reviewed after being suspended from his new job. Meanwhile, it has also been disclosed that the entire building department for the town of Surfside was under review at the time of the collapse.  Rosendo Prieto was chief building official of Surfside until November 2020. On Tuesday, he was placed on leave from his job as interim building official for C.A.P.

    An asteroid almost as long as a London bus came just 12,000 miles from the Earth, closer to the planet than many geostationary satellites, according to NASA. According to astronomers from the Virtual Telescope Project, the asteroid, dubbed 2021 GW4, posed no threat to Earth as it passed at a safe distance and was small enough that it would have burned up in the atmosphere had it been closer. On April 12 at 14:01 BST the space rock came just 12,000 miles from the planet while travelling at 18,700 miles per hour, astronomers explained. For comparison the moon is 238,000 miles from the Earth and geostationary satellites, including those providing GPS services, are about 20,000 miles away.

    Princes William and Harry will reunite as they walk behind their grandfather's coffin at his funeral next Saturday. The brothers could stand shoulder to shoulder as they form part of the royal procession at the service for the Duke of Edinburgh next Saturday.  It will be the first time the pair will be seen together since Harry's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey - in which he claimed his older brother was 'trapped' inside the Monarchy.   However, the Duchess of Sussex, who is pregnant with the couple's second child, will not be attending following medical advice.  Harry's attendance could be his chance to repair the 'deep damage' caused by his and Meghan's sit-down with Oprah, royal experts said today - as he spoke to senior members of the Royal Family ahead of his return to Britain.  The Duke will be taken to the chapel on a Land Rover he helped to design, and will be flanked by pall bearers from the Royal Marines, Regiments, Corps and Air Stations. Immediately behind the Land Rover, the Prince of Wales and other members of the...
    Grant Atkinson, The Western Journal April 3, 2021 0 Comments The job of any broadcaster is to remain professional at all times while on the air. One weatherman in Alabama took that task to heart as tornadoes ravaged the state and approached his own home on March 25. Emmy-winning weatherman James Spann was reporting on the tornadoes that day for WBMA-LD, The Washington Post reported. During the broadcast, Spann initially explained that he was checking to make sure his family was safe. “What I’m doing is texting my wife to be sure she’s in the shelter,” he said. After a few minutes passed, Spann took a longer break as his colleague took over the tornado coverage. After less than 15 minutes, Spann came back on air and explained the situation, The Post reported. “The reason I had to step out — we’ve had major damage at my house,” he said. “I had to be sure — My wife is okay, but the tornado came right through there and it’s not good. It’s bad.” The Hill reported that...
    For the second time in two weeks, a major tornado outbreak is forecast to threaten the Southeast on Thursday. Early indications are this has just as much potential as last week's outbreak, which resulted in 73 tornado reports in 3 days. Despite the large number of tornadoes last week, only two injuries and no deaths were reported, largely due to the fact that most of the tornadoes hit less populated areas. Since the exact location in which a tornado hits is pure chance, we simply can not count on another major outbreak having minimal impact again.  This threat comes as a new study shows tornadoes are often much stronger and wider than typically estimated by the National Weather Service — estimating that over 20% of tornadoes are capable of causing catastrophic damage, equal to the highest intensity EF4 to EF5 ratings.  Severe weather forecastThe groundwork is already being laid along the Gulf Coast for a rough week of weather. Over the past 24 hours up to 8 inches of rain has fallen in parts of southern Louisiana, with some scattered...
    New York Yankees: Did Deivi Garcia damage his chances at a place in the Yankees rotation? By: William Parlee March 5, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankee’s prospect Deivi Garcia is confident. Still, his performance in yesterday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies did not spell good for him getting that coveted fifth spot in the Yankees rotation. Garcia made his spring training debut yesterday, and it didn’t go well; he gave up two runs in two innings of work. In the first, García was just one strike away from retiring the side when center fielder Scott Kingery jumped on a pitch that Garcia left up in the zone, and Kingery made him pay for it slamming a big home run. Leading off the bottom of the second, right fielder Odúbel Herrera absolutely crushed a fastball over the that Garcia threw right in the heart of the plate. Herrera’s homer was a 373 feet bomb to straightaway right. He struck out three along the way as well do his start wasn’t a total loss, but...
    Josep Maria Bartomeu during a futsal match in November 2020.Enric Fontcuberta / . Those responsible for FC Barcelona “exceeded their powers of administration” by hiring a company to defame players and opponents of the board of directors of former president Josep Maria Bartomeu. This is said by a report from the Mossos d’Esquadra to which EL PAÍS has accessed and which appears in the judicial investigation opened against the former president and three other directors by the court of instruction number 13 of Barcelona. The Mossos also conclude that the club paid a “surcharge” for these services and calculate the “damage” caused “to the entity and to the entire social mass” in a figure between 843,000 and 1.2 million euros. The Catalan police warn that the money paid in three years (since 2017) to the NiceStream group (of which the I3 Ventures company is part) amounts to 2.3 million. The contracted services are the monitoring of the club’s reputation in networks, but also “an allegedly particular use in social networks”, in reference to the defamatory accounts created on platforms such...
    In a mass effort to reunite immigrant children separated from their families by the Trump Administration, 112 parents have already been found. Of the 499 children in focus, 322 parents are thought by lawyers to have been deported. Some parents agreed to deportation in hopes that their children would be granted asylum and safety in U.S. custody; instead, countless children have sat in government holding facilities for years, and a number have gone missing through a flawed foster placement system. The Biden administration has appointed a task force to find the parents of as many of these children as possible, but with some having been detained for years, the task is proving to be a daunting one.  “My Administration condemns the human tragedy that occurred when our immigration laws were used to intentionally separate children from their parents or legal guardians (families), including through the use of the Zero-Tolerance Policy,” President Biden said in a White House press release in early February. “My Administration will protect family unity and ensure that children entering the United States are not separated from...

    Now that the Democrats won't have Donald Trump to kick around anymore, they'll do it anyway, if for no other reason than to keep your eyes off their extremism. While President Joe Biden is talking about "unity and compromise," the leftist machine is still obsessing over Trump (by design) and demonizing and silencing his supporters. Leftists don't want unity and compromise, which has been clear since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015. They want total control and submission.  Their strategy is to keep the spotlight on Trump to continue to capitalize on the week from hell during which the D.C. riots occurred, milking from it every last ounce of negativity to discredit and neuter the MAGA movement. Meanwhile, Biden and his handlers are conducting the American freight train leftward at full throttle.  Our job is to counter their propaganda and resist every leftist executive order and policy initiative with as much force as Democrats resisted Trump from day one -- not for payback, not to be petty but for the good of the nation and our fellow citizens.

    The mayor of Madrid estimates the damage caused by the storm at at least 1,398 million euros
    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Outdoor enthusiasts and landscape photographers hoping to land one of the elusive permits needed to explore the colorful, contoured landscape of a U.S. Southwestern hike called The Wave will now have a better chance under a new plan announced Monday that allows more than three times the previous number of daily visitors. The plan takes effect Feb. 1 and will allow as many as 64 people per day to hike the popular rock formation near the Utah-Arizona border — up from the previous limit of 20 people per day, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management said in a news release. More than 200,000 people requested permits for the hike in 2018, with less than 4% approved through online and in-person lotteries, the most recent government stats available show. Conservation groups decried the decision as a mistake that will damage the fragile desert landscape and cut into the solitude of the hikers’ experience. BLM officials called it a balance between providing more access to the iconic trail while also preserving the landscape....

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's effort to unravel democracy hit a dead end at the Supreme Court Friday night, capping five weeks in which he dragged the country along on his narcissistic quest to stay in power after President-elect Joe Biden overwhelmingly won the election.In the end, the guardrails of democracy stayed in place. Trump lost -- for the second time at the Supreme Court this week. But instead of helping the effort to curb a deadly pandemic that has claimed nearly 300,000 American lives by easing the transition for his successor, he is already scheming about his next political moves. Before the high court rejected his bid Friday, his campaign announced a cable ad buy to further his fraudulent claims about the election, and he clearly intends to try and meddle in Congress' counting of the Electoral College results in January. More broadly, the damage he has done to Americans' faith and trust in democratic institutions will last long after he packs his bags and ends what will go down as one of the worst presidencies in history. While waiting to...

    The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned against using at-home oxygen treatments for coronavirus. In a consumer update posted on Friday, the agency said Americans should not buy oxygen concentrators or pulse oximeters without consulting a doctor first. Health officials say oxygen concentrators cannot be sold without a prescription and that breathing in too much of the gas can lead to permanent lung damage.  Meanwhile, pulse oximeters, which measure oxygen levels, may give incorrect readings and are not a substitute for nasal swab tests to detect COVID-19.

    SAN ANTONIO – Wakeboarding may be a fun, enjoyable water sport but there is no place for it at the San Antonio River Walk or the San Pedro Creek Culture Park, the San Antonio River Authority said. A video surfaced on YouTube earlier this week, showing a man wakeboarding on the River Walk. Since that video has gained traction on social media, SARA said the act is illegal and in violation of city ordinances. “This reckless activity is a violation of city ordinances and can damage the flood control structures, railings, and vegetation along the park. It jeopardizes the safety of those doing it, passersby who are out enjoying the recreational amenities, and features along the river," SARA said in a statement. “These stunts might look great on social media, but they threaten injury or death and leave a lot of damage in their ‘wake’ that is left to the local taxpayers to repair or replace.” View this post on Instagram Wakeboarding is a fun and adventurous sport, but there is no place for this unlawful behavior in the...
    New York City officials have stopped the transfer of homeless people from the Upper West Side's The Lucerne hotel at the last minute, after legal efforts from three men who have been living there amid the coronavirus pandemic. Ramone Buford, Larry Thomas and Travis Trammell were some of 235 people set to be moved to the shuttered Radisson hotel in Lower Manhattan on Monday from 10.30am after Upper West Side neighbors claimed they had brought rampant drug use and lewd displays to the neighborhood. However plans won't go ahead for now as they asked a court to intervene, saying that the move to another area where residents have strongly opposed their presence would cause 'massive psychological damage' and 'irreparable harm'. The City temporarily halted plans but Mayor Bill de Blasio's press secretary Bill Neidhardt told the New York Post: 'We will meet the lawyers in court and we plan to prevail.  Hundreds of homeless people were set to be moved from the Upper West Side's The Lucerne hotel starting Monday morning However people living near the Financial District's...
    Pine cones lie strewn on the floor of a ponderosa pine forest in New Mexico, nearly three decades after fire moved through the area and scarred the tree in the foreground.Kyle Rodman For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.This piece was originally published in Atlas Obscura and appears here as part of our Climate Desk Partnership. The majestic forests of the American West tower with iconic trees that hold decades, even centuries, of history in their heights and rings. But young, fledgling trees also tell significant stories about climate and the potential for forests to bounce back following wildfires, such as the ones that have afflicted the West with increasing intensity over the last several years. Now, that potential for renewal may be imperiled amid a warming climate and more frequent droughts and calamitous blazes. “Small trees tend to be more sensitive to climate than mature trees with deep roots that can better weather a drought,” says Kyle Rodman, a forest ecologist who has been studying how seedlings fare in...
    Raverro Stinnett’s life changed drastically in the spring of 2018. The artist, who was waiting for a ride home on public transportation at Union Station after attending a gala at RedLine gallery, was profiled, beaten and left with permanent brain damage by security guards with Allied Universal Security Services, the firm that contracts with the Regional Transportation District to keep the peace at the station. Stinnett wasn't identified in early coverage of the incident, nor when the guards pleaded guilty in December 2018. But that changed earlier this year when he filed a lawsuit against Allied and RTD. Not long after that, George Floyd’s murder at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer blew the lid off the simmering Black Lives Matter movement. That’s all it took for Stinnett’s story to go nationwide. Yet with the exception of boardmember Shontel Lewis, the RTD board has voted to continue working with Allied.

    Donald Trump will use his Republican Convention nomination acceptance speech Thursday evening to rail against Joe Biden as 'extreme' and create a clear divide between the two party's vision for the next four years. 'At no time before have voters faced a clearer choice between two parties, two visions, two philosophies, or two agendas,' Trump is expected to say in excerpts from the speech obtained by Politico and published Thursday morning. 'We have spent the last four years reversing the damage Joe Biden inflicted over the last 47 years,' he will say. 'At the Democrat convention, you barely heard a word about their agenda. But that's not because they don't have one. It's because their agenda is the most extreme set of proposals ever put forward by a major party nominee.' The speech for Trump to formally accept his nomination for reelection will be delivered on the South Lawn of the White House in front of a crowd of more than 1,500 people around 10:30 p.m. President Donald Trump is expected to rail against Joe Biden in his Republican...
