    Marvis Joy thought it was bad enough that the gas he was pumping into his Jeep Wrangler cost $7.85 for a gallon of regular. But he was taken aback when he heard how much that same gallon cost at that same downtown Los Angeles Chevron station just two days earlier. An eye-popping $8.05. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” Joy said Thursday morning, noting that you’d never see such an outrage in his hometown of St. Louis. for above $8 a gallon at Chevron gas station on Cesar E. Chavez Ave., at the intersection of Alameda Street in downtown Los Angeles.“People get upset with prices in St. Louis when they get over $4,” he said. And he left the gas station with a message: “These prices need to go down, that’s all I’m saying.” The gas station at Alameda Street and East Cesar Chavez Avenue is infamous for its sky-high prices. But it’s also a sign of the times, of gas prices that have been steadily rising yet again. The average price for a gallon of regular gas...
    Sky-high inflation and record gas prices rank as the top concerns for American voters in four battleground states, a new poll suggested on Monday. A 25-percent plurality of people surveyed said it was their top issue with less than six months to go until November's midterm elections.  In a better sign for Democrats, the second-highest ranked issue is the Supreme Court's looming decision on whether to overturn federal abortion protections granted in Roe v. Wade, according to the poll's data obtained by the Washington Examiner. Fourteen percent said their most important issue was climate change while 12 percent chose the job market. The poll was commissioned by former Vice President Mike Pence's political group, Advancing American Freedom, and weighs the opinions of 100 voters from each of the following: Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District, which includes Des Moines; eastern Kansas’s 3rd Congressional District and its Kansas City suburbs; Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District which includes St. Paul; and northeastern Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional District including the city of Scranton.  A quarter of those voters blame President Joe Biden for inflation and rising gas prices,...

    Ned Frisk | Tetra Images | Getty Images It can be expensive to be a bridesmaid or a groomsman, especially amid a wedding boom. Americans are spending an average of $825 to be in a wedding party, including pre-wedding events, attire and the wedding itself, a recent survey by LendingTree found. Meanwhile, about 2.6 million U.S. adults will get hitched in 2022, up from the typical 2.2 million weddings a year, thanks to pandemic-related postponements, according to wedding website The Knot.

    Prices at the pump have hit another record high on Monday, the same day President Joe Biden discussed the United States' and the world's 'incredible transition' away from fossil fuels. The new nationwide average now at just under $4.60 per gallon, the highest ever recorded by the American Automobile Association (AAA)'s gas price tracker. The median gas price is above $4 in all 50 states. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said it's likely to remain there 'through this year' during an interview with a local Fox affiliate. While grappling with the rising cost the White House is also preparing for turbulence in the cost of diesel fuel - which hit its own record high last week.  The administration is weighing an emergency declaration to release diesel from a rarely used stockpile in a bid to address a major supply crunch and blunt rising prices, an administration official said. Fuel costs had already been rising as the economy rebounded from the COVID-19 pandemic, but skyrocketed when Russian President Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine threw the global energy supply chain into chaos earlier this...

    Parents in Barrington, Rhode Island have slammed a woke school district for cancelling honors classes as part of a move to increase inclusivity and equity amongst students.  Barrington Public Schools were among the best in the state and known for equipping students for Ivy League colleges but have plunged 119 spots in official rankings since it changed its approach to teaching in 2020.  Parents voiced their outrage at a March 30 meeting, claiming the new structure of de-leveling - a system of universal learning - had impacted grades and access to merit scholarships for college. De-levelling involves keeping all students, regardless of their learning abilities and strengths, in the same class by removing specialized programs. A dentist father, who said he came from immigrant parents, acknowledged that de-leveling was was made for 'someone like me,' but said it will harm children, like his son, six, who also wants to be a dentist.  'My parents came from Mexico, they didn't speak English. I went to school, I started off from kindergarten to third grade before my parents could actually read my...
    Both Democrats and Republicans increased spending on security last year by nearly 700% as lawmakers faced an unprecedented number of threats.  Members of Congress from both parties saw a dramatic increase in security costs - both for personal protection and for cybersecurity measures.  Some of the most prominent and high-profile names in politics were its top spenders on security: Senators Mark Kelly and Ted Cruz; and Representatives Liz Cheney and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  In 2021, the campaign committees for lawmakers from both parties noted nearly $3 million for security-related spending, according to a CQ Roll Call analysis of federal election records. That's up nearly 700% over the entire 2019-2020 cycle when congressional candidates listed security-related expenses of $385,000.  The bill is expected to go up as campaigning begins in earnest ahead of the November midterm election.  Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one of the top ten spenders on campaign security in 2021: coming in at $73,000 Republican Rep. Liz Cheney was also in top ten at $59,000 Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly of Arizona had some of the highest costs - $300,000 last year.  His...
    A MAN has claimed his penis has shrunk by an inch and a half due to Covid, and doctors say it won’t be fixed. The anonymous male said the lasting effect of the virus has blasted his self confidence. 1Men can experience a shrinking penis after Covid, experts say Before, the 30-something American said his penis was above average size. Urologists say “Covid dick” is a real phenomenon, whereby the penis can reduce in size due to damage to blood vessels. For example, a study of 3,400 people led by University College London found that of 200 reported long Covid symptoms, a smaller penis was one of the rarer ones.  Calling in to the podcast “How to Do It”, the man said: “I'm a heterosexual man in my 30s. In July of last year I contracted Covid and was very sick.  “When I got out of the hospital, I had some erectile dysfunction issues. Those gradually got better with some medical attention, but I seem to be left with a lasting problem.  “My penis has shrunk. Before I got sick,...

    Those who want to rent a car for the holiday season this year may be in for sticker shock. Travel site Kayak reports that the average cost of rental cars is up 75 percent from 2019 and 66 percent from 2020. Jonathan Weinberg, the founder and CEO of Autoslash.com, also said the average price for a rental car nationwide is about $100 more per day than it was to rent a car in 2019. In in-demand markets, like New York, renters could even pay as much as $300-a-day to rent a car, he told the New York Post, as AAA expects 48.3 million people will drive for the Thanksgiving holiday and 4.2 million people will fly. And a study from Finance Buzz found that the average cost of renting a sedan in New York City is $261.17 per day while the average price of an SUV in the city comes in at $392.30.  The increased prices come amid sky-high gas prices and supply chain issues that are slowing down the production of new cars.  'Things are pretty crazy at the moment,...
    A poll aggregator tracking President Joe Biden's day-to-day job performance rating has clocked in the Democrat's worst approval numbers yet over the weekend as a growing number of Americans hold him at least partially responsible for soaring inflation and a worsening border crisis. The 78-year-old president's popularity slipped to just 43.4 percent from Friday through Sunday, FiveThirtyEight's lowest score for Biden yet.  It only went up slightly to 43.5 percent as of Monday morning. His unpopularity meanwhile has hit new highs, with 50.6 percent of people disapproving of Biden's job in the White House. Over the weekend, the number was slightly higher at 50.7 percent.

More than half - 58 percent - have said they are 'very concerned.'    Approval and disapproval ratings for Joe Biden's White House tenure hit new record points over the weekend Biden's approval rating on...
    RUNNING a family has gotten more expensive, as inflation continues to surge across the US. Inflation has gotten so out of control that median households are spending an additional $175 each month on housing, fuel, and food. 1That reaction when you are spending an extra $175 a month on housing, fuel and foodCredit: Getty “That’s the equivalent of a full grocery, electric or cellphone bill,” Moody’s Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi told the New York Post. Typically, the median household income is roughly $70,000. The latest data of inflation from the Bureau of Labor shows that consumer prices rose 5.3% in August. Often, inflation triggers when the supply does not meet consumer demand. Currently, this is being seen in various categories in the US. And it’s important to note that things could get worse over the winter with home heating’s costs. Alex Williams, chief financial officer of retail shopping advisory platform FindThisBest told the Sun: “If it continues like this, the per month cost of natural gas for an average American will rise a little above $100 a month.” Unfortunately, inflation will likely...

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday that there were 'active discussions' on a range of measures to combat rising COVID cases - including mask mandates - but declined to say whether restaurants and concert venues would see more restrictions.  She said any changes in policy would be guided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The issue was brought up in Psaki's daily press briefing after Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday that the CDC was examining whether to reinstate mask guidance even for fully vaccinated people in public. 'This is under active consideration,' Fauci told CNN. Psaki said there were a number of things discussed among health experts  as the number of COVID cases has risen nearly 300% over the past three weeks. 'I would say for any of these recommendations we are always going to be guided by our North Star, and that is the CDC and our health and medical experts,' she said. 'There, of course, is an active discussion about a range of steps that can be taken as there has been from the first...

    Fast food franchises are doling out bigger bucks as they continue to battle with the government handouts to recruit workers. The combination of state and federal unemployment benefits have made it more attractive for some to stay on the sidelines during the pandemic, though the federal benefits are beginning to expire around the country. Until then, fast food franchises are pulling out of all of the stops to push a hiring frenzy in the industry. Axios reports that one McDonald's in Arlington, Virginia, is offering a $500 sign-on bonus for new employees.    Wendy's is offering $100 signing and referral bonuses to new hires, in addition to same-day pay.   Chipotle is increasing the pay of restaurant workers to an average of $15 an hour. In Ohio, White Castle has started to boost hourly pay from $11.50 to $15, according to The Columbus Dispatch.  Federal unemployment benefits are supposed to end by Labor Day across the country, but in some states, they're ending early. CBS New York reports that Maryland and Tennessee are among the states set to see them expire next, on...
    A federal judge in California this weekend has overturned the state’s so-called “assault” weapons ban, which has been on the books for about thirty years, saying it violates the Second Amendment. U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of the Southern District ruled Friday that the ban, which went into effect in 1989, has been a “failed experiment” in gun control that is unconstitutional. Among the characterizations in the opinion, one that stuck out and has splashed across much of the news was an analogy relating to the AR-15. “Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment,” Benitez wrote. “Good for both home and battle, the AR-15 is the kind of versatile gun that lies at the intersection of the kinds of firearms protected under District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) and United States v Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939).” In his report on CNN, anchor Jim Acosta summed up a lot of the reaction when, after explaining the judge’s reasoning, he added “if you can...
    The US economy is roaring back to life after stalling out during the pandemic, but there are warning signs flashing that could hit consumers right in the pocketbook.  Measures of inflation - or the prices of goods and services that we all pay - are rising much more quickly than experts like to see. If those price increases get out of control, then the economic boom is likely to come to a screeching halt. And many signs of inflation are already here - with the prices of groceries, household items, gas and electricity, for example, all surging over the last year. It might seem like a complicated concept, but it plays out in real life: The average price of coffee is now up nearly 8 percent compared to last year, while the price of bread is up 11 percent, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data. Gasoline is up a whopping 22 percent.  Those things have all gone up in price while paychecks, generally, haven't. The price increases show up in the the personal consumption expenditures index, or PCE, one of...

    Sweden has just 13 patients in intensive care and has suffered an average of a single death per day for the last 10 despite avoiding lockdown. Stockholm's strategy of 'herd immunity' - once backed by Downing Street - to allow the disease to spread through the population, was criticised as reckless but the data increasingly vindicates the decision. Sweden (population 10 million) has 13 patients in intensive care, by comparison the United Kingdom (population 66 million) has 843 patients in hospital, 80 of them on ventilators. Furthermore, Sweden has had an average of just one death per day for the last 10, compared to 9.3 fatalities each day in the UK over the same period.  Anders Tegnell, the brains behind Sweden's coronavirus strategy, is considered controversial by many of his academic peers in Europe but is regarded as a hero in Sweden The nation has recorded 5,838 deaths due to Covid-19 - the fifth-highest rate per capita in Europe - but new infection numbers have been plummeting since June.

In addition, he said he will focus on preventing employment from falling below its established maximum levels. “Our revised strategy reflects our appreciation for the benefits of a strong labor market, especially for many low- and middle-income communities, and because we believe that a robust labor market can be sustained without causing an unwanted advance in inflation,” said the president of Fed Jerome Powell in remarks prepared for his speech at the Jackson Hole central bank chiefs...
