Announcers: Kevin Kugler (play-by-play), Mark Sanchez (color commentary), Laura Okmin (sideline reporting). ODDS: 49ers -8.5. OVER/UNDER: 43.5. SERIES: 49ers lead 48-27-2. LAST MEETING: Saints won 27-13 on Nov. 15, 2020. There’s no question that the San Francisco 49ers are rolling right now, and they’ve got a chance to really make it count as they kick off a three-game homestand. The 49ers host the Saints in what could be considered a trap game, given that the Saints are 4-7 and don’t exactly know who they’re playing at quarterback. San Francisco is 6-4, tied atop the NFC West and just pummeled the lowly Cardinals in Mexico City … but on Monday night, setting up a short week. But for a usually-injury-riddled 49ers team, they’re about as healthy as they’ve been all season long, with Deebo Samuel active after initially being marked as questionable for Sunday’s game. But so is Alvin Kamara, the Saints’ superstar running...
    A transgender Army vet has detailed the 'horrific' bullying she faced while in the military and revealed her plans to increase her breast size to a 4,000 CC to feel even more 'feminine' and put the past behind her.  Caregiver and former army-medic administrative Staff Sergeant Maxine Montoya, 41, from San Diego, California, transitioned in her thirties and is now on a mission to fund new 4,000 CC boobs via OnlyFans. Maxine was born a male and was raised in a 'very sheltered, conservative household', which caused her to realize she didn't want to adhere to stereotypical gender roles and had her own path that was different in comparison to most of her friends and family.  Although she felt the most comfortable around other girls and being feminine, Maxine attempted to adhere to the traditional gender roles and joined the Army at her mother's request - where she faced 'threats' that ultimately reaffirmed her to decision to transition once she was out of the Army and amp up her breast size to feel 'empowered'.  Army vet Maxine Montoya, 41, detailed...
    Gautam Adani has had a very good year. The Indian billionaire briefly surpassed Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to become the second-richest person in the world in September, according to Bloomberg. He's now ranked as the world's fourth wealthiest person. Outside Southeast Asia, Adani is hardly a household name. That might be changing now that he's richer than Microsoft founder Bill Gates and iconic investor Warren Buffett. "The kind of rise that you have seen is truly phenomenal and probably unprecedented in the world that in such a short time a single individual has been able to acquire assets across industrial sectors and has emerged as one of the largest billionaires in the world," said Hemindra Hazari, an independent research analyst based in Mumbai, India. Coming from a middle-class family background, Adani began his entrepreneurial journey in the country's financial capital, Mumbai, as a diamond sorter in the late 1970s. Adani is now chair of the Adani Group, one of the three largest industrial conglomerates in India. Adani's company representatives did not respond to several requests for comment from CNBC. Why...
    Shane Lowry has become the latest to blast players who've swapped the traditional golf circuit for the lucrative and controversial LIV Tour. The tension between the two tours has only intensified this week with 17 LIV rebels allowed to play the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in England, which got underway today. LIV Golf members have been suspended by the PGA Tour and from most DP World Tour events, though they are allowed in the field this week at Wentworth if they are ranked inside the top 60 in the Official World Golf Rankings — something that can't be improved by playing in LIV Golf events. Rory McIlroy, the most vocal critic of the Saudi-backed event, said it would be 'hard to stomach' seeing LIV stars at the European circuit's flagship tournament while Billy Horschel and Jon Rahm both took aim at the contingent. Now Lowry has hit out at the 'disruptive' players and admitted he finds particular players being at the event unbearable and he doesn't 'hang out' with those that have defected anymore. 'There's some of the guys I...
    An elderly woman was killed by an alligator in her gated community after she slipped into a pond while gardening near where the creature was lurking.  The body of the woman, identified as 88-year-old Nancy Becker, was spotted near an alligator that looked like it was 'standing guard' at 11.15am yesterday in Sun City Hilton Head, a gated adult community city just north of Savannah in South Carolina. The death is the fourth confirmed fatal alligator attack in the United States this year and second one in South Carolina. Emergency services were able to recover Becker's body around 1pm, the sheriff's office said in a news release.  Authorities said that the Sun City resident had been doing a spot of gardening near the pond on Monday morning when she slipped into the water. She was unable to get out in time before the alligator struck. Major Angela Viens, of Beaufort County Sheriff's Office, said officials with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources were still attempting to capture the alligator at 3pm.  An elderly woman was killed by a nine foot alligator...
    SHOCKING pictures show burnt-out remains of an electric Jaguar I-Pace which burst into flames while parked and charging in a man's garage. This Florida blaze is the fourth reported time a Jaguar I-Pace has caught fire seemingly on its own. 2Close up of Jaguar I-Pace fire aftermath in FloridaCredit: Twitter Owner Gonzalo Salazar told Electrek: "I heard pops coming from the garage. I decided to go see where the sounds were coming from, and upon walking into the garage, I faced a thick wall of smoke. "My thought immediately was, ‘When there is smoke there is fire,’ and I need to get the car out of the house garage." Salazar was able to move the I-Pace out of the garage into the street, but it was still smoking and he called the Jaguar roadside assistance to have them investigate. He continues: "When I ended the conversation with them there were more pops, but this time it was followed by fire from under the car.

    It’s that time of year again when dogs cower, the sky lights up and neighborhoods boom with the sound of fireworks… …And sometimes, people find themselves in a hospital bed due to fireworks-related accidents or lapses in judgment. Reported fireworks injuries dropped dramatically last year in a state survey of Minnesota hospitals conducted annually in the weeks surrounding the Fourth of July holiday: between 2016 and 2020, there were an average of 73 reported injuries per year. Last year; just 17. State Chief Deputy Fire Marshal Amanda Swenson said she’s optimistic that that means the state is trending toward fewer fireworks injuries, but she’d caution jumping to conclusions that we’ll keep seeing lower injury counts. Article continues after advertisement Who gets injured The drop-off in reported injuries in 2021 has a few possible causes. First, changes to the way reports were collected, plus hospital staffing issues may have reduced the number of responses to the survey, per Minnesota Department of Public Safety spokesperson Zach Kayser. Second, pandemic supply chain issues that have stymied store shelf stocking and shipping affected fireworks,...
    SAN FRANCISCO — As the fourth-quarter minutes expired and the Warriors kept missing shots, the Celtics came alive to rally for a Game 1 win in Chase Center’s NBA Finals debut. Not the ending the Warriors expected, not after yellow streamers rained from their roof to celebrate the Western Conference championship a week earlier. How did they blow a 15-point, second-half lead? Celtics coach Ime Udoka pointed to their top-ranked defense, and a nearly five-minute scoreless stretch by the Warriors sure backed up that claim. “That’s who we’ve been all year: tough, grinders, resilient group that knows we can always rely on our defense to buckle down when we need it,” Udoka said. “… Didn’t have a great three quarters. Locked down when we needed to.” Boston went on lockdown, specifically, with a smaller lineup that tried to force the Warriors’ shooters inside the 3-point arc. The Celtics switched up their man-to-man defense, and that foiled the Warriors, whose offensive rebounding keyed a 38-24 third-quarter swing. “We wanted to get aggressive and go small, small, small,” Udoka said. “This is...

"She did what she had to to survive... (she) pretended to be dead."Rivera said she does not know how her niece came up with the idea, but it likely saved her life.It is her understanding that the fourth-grade students switched between the two fourth-grade teachers' classes and that the rooms were adjoined.

    America is moving into what might be the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the virus - and potentially regular shots for it - may be around for long into the future. How long can not yet be determined, though, and even some of the world's top health experts can not give solid answers as to how many shots people will need, and for how long. Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, told CNBC in an interview published Monday that he was unsure what was next for Covid vaccines, but he is confident that more will be needed down the line. On Sunday, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla told CBS' Face the Nation that a fourth Covid shot would be necessary for Americans to control the virus going forward.

    THE FA has launched an investigation after Anthony Elanga was hit by an object during Manchester United's win over Leeds at Elland Road on Sunday. The Red Devils raced into a first half two-goal lead thanks to captain Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes. 3Elanga was struck with the object as United celebrated their third goal at Elland RoadCredit: Reuters 3The shocking act left Elanga in a heap on the floorCredit: Reuters But their lead quickly evaporated in the second half as Leeds scored two within 60 seconds of each other. Elanga and Fred were brought on for Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard in order to change United's fortunes. And they did. Fred finished off a sweeping counter attack to restore United's lead and strengthen their grip on fourth place.

    U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) departs after attending a bipartisan work group meeting on an infrastructure bill at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., June 8, 2021.Evelyn Hockstein | Reuters Sen. Kyrsten Sinema raised over $1.5 million toward the end of 2021 as she opposed key elements of her own party's agenda, according to new Federal Election Commission records. Sinema, who represents Arizona and is up for reelection in 2024, with a possible primary challenge on the way, raised the amount during the October-December period. Her campaign had just over $5.7 million on hand going into the New Year. Her fourth-quarter fundraising haul eclipsed what she pulled in during the previous quarter. The centrist lawmaker raked in the campaign cash while she fought crucial parts of President Joe Biden's agenda. She has objected to changing the Senate filibuster rule, which would enable Democrats to pass more legislation, and opposed raising some tax rates. Sinema has also opposed raising the minimum wage to $15 and worked to shrink Biden's climate change and social safety net bill, which has hit a dead...

    The biggest meat company by sales in the United States has announced significant prices rises for the fourth quarter, as the impact of the highest inflation for 30 years continues to be felt. Tyson Foods, based in Springdale, Arkansas, announced on Monday that chicken prices rose 19 per cent during its fiscal fourth quarter, while beef and pork prices jumped 33 per cent and 38 per cent, respectively.

    Floridas palm trees could become the next victim of the climate crisis ‘Striketober’ is showing workers’ rising power – but will it lead to lasting change? © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad LAS VEGAS — It was an unfamiliar scene during the men’s short program press conference at Skate America on Friday night. 2018 U.S. Olympian Vincent Zhou sat in the middle – in the lead halfway through the event – with Japan’s Shoma Uno to his left and fellow American Jimmy Ma on his right. Nathan Chen was nowhere to be found.

    Elijah Mitchell got his big chance in the 49ers’ opener last week in Detroit because of a knee injury to Raheem Mostert. On Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia, fellow 49ers rookie Trey Sermon received his first carry of the season in part because Mitchell picked up a shoulder injury of his own that kept him out for a few plays in the fourth quarter. After Mitchell was injured, JaMycal Hasty took over on the ground, but he fumbled a toss play, leading the 49ers’ coaching staff to insert Sermon into the game. Sermon himself was hurt on his first touch, when he took a helmet-to-helmet hit from Eagles safety K’Von Wallace. He fumbled the ball, which was picked up by Eagles cornerback Darius Slay, but a penalty on Wallace for the hit negated the play and gave the ball back to San Francisco.

    Team USA reigned supreme over the men's 400m individual medley final with Chase Kalisz taking the gold medal and Jay Litherland finishing second. Kalisz was able to pull away in a very tight field to clinch victory in the opening medal race in the pool, while Great Britain's Max Litchfield came home joint-fourth. Litchfield, the slowest butterfly swimmer out of the eight athletes, burst through in the freestyle and agonisingly came within 0.21 seconds of claiming bronze. The result marked the seventh time the American team have taken the top two places in the event, and Kalisz's gold was their first of this summer's Olympics. In the end, the victor triumphed with a fine time of 4min 9.42 sec. Litchfield, meanwhile, was inches away from becoming Team GB's first medallist this summer - and has repeated his placing from Rio de Janeiro five years ago.  Despite trailing in eighth place after the butterfly leg, Litchfield edged up into sixth following the backstroke.  He then starred in the breaststroke to take fifth, and from then it was...

    When it comes to the Olympics there aren't many greater shoo-ins for a gold medal, let alone a medal, than Team USA at basketball. Both the men and women dominate their respective fields historically. Focusing on the former, this is perfectly illustrated by the fact they have won 15 of 18 tournaments in which they have participated in - including seven-straight between 1936 and 1968. Bringing it up to date, the men's US team have triumphed at the last three Games (Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016) - winning the final by an emphatic 30 points over Serbia in Brazil almost five years ago.

    NASA announced Friday that Ingenuity successfully completed its fourth flight, which saw the small helicopter 'fly farther and faster than ever before.' The American space agency received the data downlink at 1:39pm ET that showed the copter took off from ‘Wright Brothers Field’ under the watchful gaze of the Perseverance rover at 10:12am ET. Perseverance, which sat some 210 feet away, snapped a picture of its travel companion’s fourth flight through the thin atmosphere on Mars. Ingenuity was set to fly 16 feet above the surface and head south 267 feet, but NASA has yet to not confirm if these specific marks were hit.  ‘Success. #MarsHelicopter completed 4th flight, going farther & faster than ever before. It also took more photos as it flew over the Martian surface. We expect those images will come down in a later data downlink, but @NASAPerseverance’s Hazcam caught part of the flight,’ NASA’s JPL shared on Twitter. The flight was initially set for Thursday, but the data downlink showed Ingenuity did not transition to flight mode - meaning it never left the ground. Scroll...
    Spain is once again at high risk for coronavirus. After a slight period of respite and a decrease in infections as the third wave subsided, there is already talk of a fourth with a certain fear of the consequences of Holy Week. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) warns of the epidemic situation “worrying and serious” and urges European countries to accelerate a vaccination rate that it considers “unacceptably” slow. “Vaccines are our best way out of the pandemic. Not only do they work, they are also very effective in limiting infections, “said WHO Europe Director Hans Kluge. This Wednesday, Health notified 8,544 new positives and a cumulative incidence of 152.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in recent days; considerably uneven transmission between communities.

    The nation's gross domestic product increased 4.1% in the fourth quarter, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported Thursday. The fourth quarter GDP figure was revised upward from the previous estimate of 4%, because of upgrades to residential fixed investment, private inventory investment, and state and local government spending. The second quarterly estimate caps a year in which the economy ground to a halt only to recover with massive fiscal and monetary stimulus from both Congress and the Federal Reserve. These included enhanced unemployment benefits, one-time payments to working Americans and massive purchases of financial assets by the central bank.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. productivity fell sharply in the October-December quarter while labor costs rose. The Labor Department reported Thursday that productivity dropped at a 4.8% rate in the fourth quarter after having risen strongly in the two previous quarters. Productivity, the amount of work per hour of output, has produced some major swings since the pandemic hit early last year, pushing the country into a recession. After falling 0.3% in the first quarter, productivity shot up at a 10.6% rate in the second quarter as millions of people lost their jobs. With employment falling faster than output, productivity increased. Labor costs jumped at a 6.8% rate in the fourth quarter after having fallen at a 7% rate in the first third quarter.

    Niece Waidhofer took to Instagram on Saturday to share a new photo set that, much like most of her previous updates, featured her flaunting her impressive figure. However, this post was different from the others as it mainly focused on the adorable puppy she was posing with — and the fact she had gotten it for her mother, as she explained in the caption. In the first of the four images in the series, Niece was photographed in profile while sitting on the grass. The model wore a long-sleeved shirt with a pink-and-gray checkered design, leaving it halfway open to reveal much of her cleavage. She teamed the top with a pair of skintight black leggings and accessorized with a choker in the same color. She flashed a wide smile as her furry friend, a black-and-white Pomeranian/Siberian Husky mix, was perched on her lap with a serious look on his face. The other three photos featured the dog in various poses, with the second and third pics showing him relaxing indoors on what looked like a beige couch with three...

    Netflix has sparked controversy after eagle-eyed military viewers noticed Olivia Colman's salute was 'limp' in The Crown's season trailer. In the trailer for the fourth season of the hit show, the Queen gave a salute as she watched the Red Arrows perform a flypast at Buckingham Palace in London. But General Lord Dannatt, former head of the army, told The Times Colman's 'limp-cocked wrist' would 'drive any self-respecting sergeant major mad'. He added: 'Certainly these TV studios should draft in a sergeant major or other military instructor to make sure actors learn to keep their wrist straight.' Colonel Richard Kemp, ex-commander of British forces in Afghanistan, agreed. He said the Queen always offered a 'stiff and straight salute' following her years of experience. In the trailer for the fourth season of the hit show, the Queen gave a salute as she watched the Red Arrows perform a flypast at Buckingham Palace in London Timothy Brown, who served in the 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards, wrote a letter to the newspaper to complain even Colman's aiguillettes were worn incorrectly.

    Natalie Roush offered her 957,000 Instagram fans something to look at on Monday, October 19, in her most recent post. The brunette bombshell took to the popular social media platform to share a couple of snapshots of herself rocking a skimpy lingerie set as she sprawled in a comfy chair with her legs wide apart. Both photos were similar and featured Roush in a brown leather armchair. In the first, she had one foot up in between her thighs as she rested her knee against the side of the furniture. She looked sideways at a point outside of the frame. The second shot captured her in a similar pose, but both of her feet were up in the chair. Roush also glanced at the camera, keeping her eyes soft while parting her lips. Roush bared her hourglass figure in a two-piece set made from lacy brown fabric. The lace over the cups had enough solid parts to cover her chest and censor the photo. The bra also featured a low-cut neckline that showed off her cleavage. Her bottoms also had...
    Tom Brady showed he can laugh at himself while congratulating LeBron James for winning his fourth NBA title Sunday night. Brady on Monday tweeted a photoshopped image of James wearing the quarterback’s No. 12 Tampa Bay Buccaneers jersey while holding up four fingers. “Congrats to my brother @KingJames on winning his 4th championship,” Brady wrote. “Not bad for a washed up old guy.” The 43-year-old Brady had been questioned following the Bucs’ 20-19 loss last Thursday night to the Chicago Bears for likely losing track of the downs late in the game.

    Megan Rapinoe celebrates her girlfriend, Sue Bird, after the Seattle Storm's 2020 WNBA championship victory. AP Photo/Chris O'Meara Sue Bird is the greatest point guard in the history of the WNBA. The 39-year-old superstar won her fourth WNBA championship with the Seattle Storm Tuesday night, averaging 7.7 points and 11 assists per game in her team's three-game sweep of the Las Vegas Aces.

    Hurricane Sandy Fast Facts Meet the K-shaped recession, where professional workers are largely fine and everyone else is doing awful Maybe Craig Carton Can Get a Third Job Offer While Were At It WFAN is expected to offer a lucrative olive branch to formerly disgraced radio host Craig Carton by week's end, according to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post. It would be a fast-tracked return for Carton, who served a year in federal prison after being convicted of felony fraud — the victims of which were largely the everyday sports fans who would presumably be welcoming him back with their dials and downloads. © Provided by The Big Lead But that's not all.
