    Frederick Breedon/Getty Images Matt Barnes walked back Friday the comments he previously made about the suspension of Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka. It originally appeared that Barnes would be a prominent supporter of Udoka. This afternoon, however, Barnes posted a live video on his Instagram and retracted the comments he made last night and deleted his original take. “Last night without knowing all the facts I spoke on Ime Udoka’s defense,” Barnes said to his Instagram followers. Barnes gave no details on why he changed his mind, but it was enough to make him give an explanation to his followers. “After finding out the facts, I erased what I posted,” Barnes continued. “This situation in Boston is deep. It’s messy. It’s 100 times uglier than any of us thought.” Barnes argued it is not his business to share, but people should be thoughtful about what happened. “It’s not my place to tell you what happened,” Barnes said. “If it ends up coming out, it ends up coming out, but that was the reason I erased my post last night.”...
    Retired NBA forward-turned-media personality Matt Barnes has backed off criticism of the Boston Celtics for suspending head coach Ime Udoka over an alleged affair with an unidentified female staffer. Barnes, 42, originally slammed the suspension on Thursday, only to reverse course on Friday when he learned the 'all the facts,' which he says are '100 times uglier than any of us thought.' Udoka was suspended late Thursday night for the upcoming 2022-23 season over 'multiple' violations of team rules, involving a single female team staff member. ESPN, The Athletic, and The Associated Press have since reported that Udoka was having in inappropriate, but consensual relationship with the woman.  However, The Athletic raised questions about the relationship Thursday night, reporting that Udoka was accused by the woman of making 'unwanted comments' to her, prompting the Celtics to launch internal interviews that ultimately led to his suspension. On Friday, in a self-shot Instagram video, Barnes explained that he deleted his previous post criticizing the decision because he learned more information. 'Since I'm a part of the media now, and I try not...
    Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be another one of those ‘The Queen Who Met Me’ pieces. Although I did meet her once, at the 150th anniversary of the Journalists’ Charity, of which she was patron. I was in a receiving line, along with other ambassadors for the charity, standing next to my old mate Nick Ferrari, the peerless LBC radio breakfast show presenter. Nick, an ardent monarchist, was so overcome with excitement at meeting Her Maj that he actually curtsied. He squatted so low that I worried he might have trouble getting up again. The Queen had that effect on people. Even though I’ve never been much of a royalist, it was an honour to shake her hand. I remember thinking how much she reminded me of my own mum. Same height, similar demeanour, some of the same facial expressions. It was an impression that only increased, every time I saw the Queen on TV, as they both got older and entered their tenth decade. I was in a receiving line, along with other ambassadors for the charity, standing...
    Religious devotion has the potential to tip into extremism, and that appears to have been the case with Lori Vallow Daybell and her fifth husband, Chad Daybell, whose Mormonism took on deranged and apocalyptic forms, and seems to have driven them to allegedly murder their respective prior spouses as well as two of Lori’s children: 16-year-old Tylee Ashlyn Ryan and 7-year-old Joshua Jaxon “J.J.” Vallow. Crimes don’t come much more heinous than this and, as illustrated by Sins of Our Mother, they also don’t come out of the blue—rather, they’re the byproduct of increasingly warped belief systems and behavior, which in this instance had to do with Lori and Chad’s certainty that the End Times were imminent and that only they could identify the demon zombies in their midst. A three-part non-fiction affair premiering Sept. 14 on Netflix, Sins of Our Mother is directed by Skye Borgman (The Girl in the Picture, I Just Killed My Dad), who is now approaching Alex Gibney-grade levels of productivity. Such efficiency, however, has undercut her latest; since Lori and Chad are still awaiting...
    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Heading into the trade deadline, it’s nice to have problems as minor as the ninth spot in the order not hitting very much. That’s been one of the only real nits to pick with the Mets (65-37), who have batted their catcher in the nine hole for 97 of their 102 games this season. Those catchers — Tomas Nido, James McCann and Patrick Mazeika — have a collective 54 wRC+, analytics-speak for 46% worse than the average major league hitter. The only team getting worse offensive production from their catchers is the Houston Astros (51 wRC+), who addressed that issue head-on by swinging a trade for Boston backstop Christian Vazquez on Monday. Armchair general managers across the tri-state area can all agree that the Mets should also look to upgrade the position before the trade deadline, which hits at 6 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Buck Showalter isn’t really the type of guy to dwell on the negative, though, at least not with cameras and recording devices around. Rather than bemoan the lack of offense, Showalter focused on...
    He admitted in the op-ed that he was wrong about Democrat policies worsening inflation. “Some warned that the package would be dangerously inflationary; others were fairly relaxed," Krugman wrote. “I was Team Relaxed. As it turned out, of course, that was a very bad call.” Voters have made it clear in polling that they blame President Joe Biden and his policies for high inflation, and that they are voting in the pivotal midterm elections based on their anger over inflation. Here's the video of Krugman's appearance: \[email protected] on getting inflation wrong: "Partly it\u2019s that there is stuff that I didn\u2019t \u2014 that nobody saw coming. Nobody saw Putin invading Ukraine. I think nobody thought about logistic supply chains or any of that stuff until suddenly it became a big problem."\u201d — Tom Elliott (@Tom Elliott) 1658412282

    During an interview on MSNBC on Friday, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) said she thinks that the Supreme Court “tipped off” pro-life protestors about how it was going to rule in the Dobbs decision. Because when she went over to the Supreme Court, there were only pro-life protestors. She later admitted, “I don’t have any evidence” for the claim the court tipped off pro-life protestors. Speier stated, “I went over to the Supreme Court early, and the only people that were there were the protestors who were pro-birth, not pro-life, and I thought they had been tipped off.” Host Stephanie Ruhle then followed up on Speier’s claim that pro-life protestors were tipped off by the Supreme Court. Speier responded, “I think they were tipped off. Because it was quite early. It was just right after the decision came out. We were voting on the floor. I thought I was just going to run over. And I thought, this is odd. There aren’t any pro-choice people here yet, and these folks were there. So, I do. I believe they were tipped off. I don’t...
    A MAN is desperate to have his "cursed" tattoo removed - but it's so bad people think it's fake. Christian Walton, 23, decided to get "My First Tatoo" in rainbow letters inked across the top of his back - complete with the incorrect spelling of the word "tattoo". 2Christian Walton, 23, is desperate to get rid of his dodgy tattooCredit: Kennedy News 2Christian when he appeared on MTV in 2018Credit: MTV / Just Tattoo Of Us The sales administrator from Newcastle got the tattoo when he appeared on MTV's show Just Tattoo Of Us in 2018.

    "Our policing system is built to enable white supremacy. It is not just a few bad apples, it’s a rotten tree. We need to transform public safety — and that starts with defunding the police and reinvesting in our communities," Bush tweeted in 2021. A Politico Morning Consult poll of registered voters that was conducted in early February found that a majority thought that increased funding for police departments would result in a decline in the incidence of violent crime in the U.S. While 36% thought additional funding for police departments would decrease the rate of violent crime in America by a lot, 33% though it would decrease the rate by some, while 22% thought that additional police funding would not result in any violent crime rate decrease. The poll also found that 26% thought that hiring social workers to assist police in dealing with individuals experiencing emotional issues would cause the violent crime rate to fall by a lot, while 37% thought this would lead to some decrease, and 25% thought it would not result in any violent...
    The embarrassing emails released yesterday are just part of the picture of activist Ginni Thomas being involved in January 6 issues. Justice Thomas himself has been hospitalized and was unavailable for comment, though the emails do not discuss him at all. WaPo: Virginia Thomas urged White House chief to pursue unrelenting efforts to overturn the 2020 election, texts show In messages to Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in the weeks after Election Day, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas called Biden’s victory “the greatest Heist of our History” and told him that President Donald Trump should not concede. The messages, which do not directly reference Justice Thomas or the Supreme Court, show for the first time how Ginni Thomas used her access to Trump’s inner circle to promote and seek to guide the president’s strategy to overturn the election results — and how receptive and grateful Meadows said he was to receive her advice. Among Thomas’s stated goals in the messages was for lawyer Sidney Powell, who promoted incendiary and unsupported claims about the election, to be “the...
    DENVER (CBS4) – People were out jogging and walking their dogs in Denver’s Central Park neighborhood Monday morning. It’s home to many families with young children and there are a number of schools in the area. It’s not the place where you would expect a bizarre and horrific crime would happen, but as CBS4 reported over the weekend, Thursday at around 11 a.m., someone stole a 20x15x18-inch box from a medical van containing human heads. The human remains were intended for medical research. “It’s the type of headline you might see on The Onion. I read it over and was like, is this real?” said Kevin Channell, who lives in the neighborhood. “I couldn’t wrap my mind around what you would do with something like that if you intentionally stole it,” Channell said. Karen Goodson also frequents the area. “It’s pretty weird and I thought it was horrible. I would donate body parts, and for someone to steal them steals from us all. And it desecrates these people,” said Goodson. Both are puzzled by what would compel someone to do...
    Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers have called it quits. The engaged couple split because the Green Bay Packers player "put football first" and they "barely spent any time together," a source told In Touch Weekly. 1Shailene Woodley and NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers have ​reportedly split.Credit: Getty Images - Getty Shailene confirmed that she is engaged to Aaron Rodgers in February 2021. Confirming the news on Jimmy Kimmel, she said: “So it’s kind of funny. Everybody right now is freaking out over it and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while. “He’s, first off, just a wonderful, incredible human being. But I never thought I’d be engaged with somebody who threw balls for a living. "Like, I never thought as a little girl… ‘Yeah, when I grow up, I’m gonna marry someone who throws balls! Yeah!’ But he’s really just so good at it.” The 37-year-old recently thanked his "fiancée" during his acceptance speech at the NFL Honors in February 2021. While making a virtual appearance to accept the 2020 MVP of the NFL honor, Aaron said: "It's an...
    A MUM who thought her symptoms after a car crash were due to whiplash has since found out she could be "internally decapitated" at any moment. Louise Turner, 36, says she fears for her life every day as her normal life has crumbled around her since the accident.  6Louise Turner, 36, could be "internally decapitated" at any moment due to a condition that makes her neck muscles too weak to hold her head upCredit: PA Real Life 6Louise has become wheelchair bound and unable to leave her house without a neck braceCredit: PA Real Life The mum-of-four, of Ashford, Kent, has suffered everything from slurred speech to agonising headaches and a suspected stroke.  And she has become wheelchair bound and unable to leave her house without a neck brace, meaning her wedding has been put off for almost two years.

    So simple, so lifesaving. This series documents stories from the Herman Cain Awards subreddit. tracking the COVID mis- and disinformation on Facebook that is leading to so many deaths. Today’s cautionary tale has finally found the evidence she pretended didn’t exist.  We’ve seen the usual memes over and over again, so today we’re taking a break from that and keeping it short and sweet.  Did anyone say it wasn’t okay to be white?  It’s not okay to be racist. Too bad these people can’t see the distinction.  Well, the official global tally is 5.5 million people, with the actual number likely multitudes higher.  So what is “The Agenda,” actually?  A Facebook meme with no citations or data behind it declared something, so it must be real.  That’s what “do your own research” truly means.  Uh-oh.  Nineteen days! Just 19 days from “the evidence supports my stupid reluctance to reject a lifesaving vaccine” to death. I wonder if she sees the evidence now. (Well, not now.) But during those last moments, gasping for air as COVID-19 ravaged her lungs. I wonder...

    HUNTINGTON BEACH (CBSLA) – Authorities Thursday indicated that the volume of the Orange County oil spill caused by a ruptured pipeline may be significantly less than originally estimated. A sign just south of the Huntington Beach Pier lets beachgoers know that the shoreline and water are closed due to the oil spill. October 7, 2021. (Mark Rightmire/Orange County Register/Getty Images) Earlier in the week, officials had said that the amount of oil spill may be as high as 144,000 gallons. However, on Thursday, officials said it may be under 30,000 gallons. At a news conference Thursday afternoon, U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Rebecca Ore estimated that roughly 588 barrels of oil had spilled, which would equate to about 24,700 gallons. That’s being considered a minimum amount leaked, but officials are not sure how much more could have spilled into the ocean. “There’s speculation of about 30,000 gallons, but that’s not been confirmed,” Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett said Thursday. “But that would make more sense,” adding that the amount of wildlife so far affected by the spill does not reflect a...

    TOTTENHAM’s efforts to sign Adama Traore could hit the buffers amid a reported dispute concerning details surrounding the deal. Spanish outlet AS claims negotiations between the clubs have hit a brick wall despite them reaching an agreement over a £40million price.  2Tottenham and Wolves are reported to hit a brick wall with transfer negotiations concerning Adama Traore Traore, 25, is thought to be among the players on Nuno Espirito Santos' transfer target list along with Juventus creative midfielder Weston McKennie. Tottenham, who play Watford next, are thought to be keen on signing Traore on loan with an option to buy.  But AS via Sport Witness claims the Molineux side desire a straight transfer of the player for their requested asking price.  And there are fears Spurs’ reported move for the star - who is thought to enjoy a good working relationship with Nuno - could break down over this impasse. It is thought that both clubs may be keen to find a compromise with the transfer window set to shut in six days. Traore, who moved from Wolves to...
    No mulligans for Jack Nicklaus – in golf or politics. After publicly endorsing former President Donald Trump ahead of the 2020 election, the famed golfer has no regrets. Last October, Nicklaus tweeted a six paragraph letter preaching his support for Trump. “This is not a personality contest,” the 18-time major champion wrote. “It’s about patriotism, policies and the people they impact. His love for America and its citizens, and putting his country first, has come through loud and clear.” Speaking with The Washington Post this week, Nicklaus said he didn’t notice any criticism regarding his political stance. “I never got any blowback, and I’m sure I had a ton of it,” he said. “But I don’t pay attention to that stuff. I didn’t see any of it.” Nicklaus told Leonard Shapiro of The Washington Post that he decided to write the letter after a phone call from Vice President Mike Pence, who called the hall-of-fame golfer on behalf of Trump. According to Nicklaus, Pence said Trump thought it would be awkward to make the request himself. But Nicklaus was...
    (CBS DETROIT)– 21 year old Maurice Hall, is having a horrible week. “You have 24 hours before we evict you,” said Maurice Hall. READ MORE: Michigan Lottery Player Wins $1.2 Million Lotto 47 Jackpot; Bought Ticket Online That was earlier this week. Hall says on Wednesday he got a knock on the door of his Clinton Township home. On the other end was a court officer telling him he had 30 minutes to vacate the property. Hall admits to being behind on rent, due to being out of work, but says this all caught him by surprise. “I did what I was supposed to do, I filed for CERA I let my landlords know what was going on, I’m communicating hopefully I can get some time to figure this out,” Hall said. Hall says he thought he was protected from eviction while his paperwork was being processed through the Macomb County courts. Ernest Cawvey with Macomb Community Action says, anyone falling behind on rent should complete the CERA application. “The Michigan Supreme Courts issued guidance that no eviction proceeding can proceed...
    The woman whose viral video captured a man dangling from the bar of a chairlift-like ride just moments before he plummeted 50 feet to his death said she tried in vain to  stop the ride after noticing he 'didn't have any equipment that would save him from a fall.' 'I thought it was a stunt, or he is a gymnast practicing for American Ninja Warrior, rehearsing,' said Lucy Grace Astilla, who was at Lagoon Amusement Park in Farmington, Utah, where the tragedy unfolded Saturday. Astilla was taking aerial footage from the Sky Ride with her husband when he saw the man hanging from the cable car - facing forward - traveling in the opposite direction, she told Fox 13.  She could be heard in the video asking, 'Why is he doing it like that?' as she pans over to the man, who is clutching the safety bar as it crossed above a fountain surrounded by people, many of whom stopped and pointed up at the man. But the realization dawned quickly that he 'didn’t have any equipment that would save him from a...

    Tom Brady’s knee injury may not have been a mystery after all.  In July, news first surfaced that Brady had played the entirety of last season with a torn MCL in his left knee, an injury that warranted “pretty serious” surgery in February. Yet according to Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen, the severity of the injury had not been a secret to the Buccaneers. “I thought everyone knew, [about his torn MCL],” Christensen said in a recent appearance on CBS Sports Radio. “When I first met him, he said, ‘Hey, my knee’s not 100 percent but with the tape job and stuff I’ll make it through the season and after the season we’ll get her fixed up.’ Tom Brady works out with the BuccaneersGetty Images “He really does have a unique understanding of his body and competing and what it takes and can manage it. … He kind of managed it. We tried to be smart. We really didn’t modify much. We rested him like we would any veteran player at certain opportunities during the season.”  The Buccaneers...
    Tucker Carlson ridiculed the four Capitol Police officers who provided harrowing accounts of their experiences on January 6th during a House committee hearing investigating the events of that day. There is no denying the raw emotion on display on Tuesday, the first hearing of the investigation. Three of the four officers admitted that they thought they were going to die. And in the event that any cynics thought that to be hyperbole, footage was shown making clear just how violent the mob really was. “You cannot watch this testimony and say that is not a big deal,” said Fox News anchor Bret Baier early on Tuesday, dismissing Republican officials who claimed the hearing was purely political. But Carlson, predictably, took the opposite approach. “Democrats picked four carefully curated police officers to testify as the voice of the law enforcement community,” Carlson said, before reminding viewers that he had previously called Officer Harry Dunn a “partisan activist and we were right about that.” He also said that Officer Dunn lied to Congress for claiming Brian Sicknick died due to injuries sustained...
    (CNN)Donald Trump's final days as president were defined by near-total chaos as House Democrats moved to impeach him for his action (and inaction) during the January 6 riot at the US Capitol even as the soon-to-be-former president sought to use the power of his office to settle scores and reward loyalists.And yet, even amid those last, wild days, there was a sense that for as bad as everything we could see was, there was even worse stuff going on behind closed doors that wouldn't be made public until Trump left office, and the true reportorial digging began.Which brings me to Tuesday, when two highly anticipated Trump books -- Michael Bender's "Frankly We Did Win This Election," and Michael Wolff's "Landslide" -- went on sale, with a third book -- "I Alone Can Fix It" by Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker -- scheduled to be released in seven days' time.All three books focus on Trump's last year in office. And all three present what can only be described as a terrifying picture of a president consumed by personal hatred and unwilling...

    North Carolina Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson joined ‘Unfiltered with Dan Bongino’ Saturday to discuss the importance of hard work, and what makes America great.  MARK ROBINSON: The government cannot give you the American dream. What the government will give you is false hope and that will give you a nightmare. The American dream only comes through hard work, steadfastness and standing up and controlling your own destiny. Not allowing the government to do that but doing it yourself. And what the Biden administration and other leftists’ administrations before him have done or are trying to do to our society is just what you said. It’s absolutely wrong and in fact, in some way, it’s very evil. Robinson also said that he wasn't giving Gwen Berry ‘a second thought’ after the athlete protested the national anthem at the Olympic trials in Oregon.  MARK ROBINSON: I don’t even give her a second thought. ... I am not giving her any energy or attention at all. I’m not paying her any attention. That’s what she wants. She wants attention, she’s not going to...

    Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau’s rivalry on and off the golf course has been well documented and a video shared on social media on Monday night underscored the intensity between the two. The video appeared to show Koepka about to do an interview with the GOLF Channel after finishing tied for second at the PGA Championship behind Phil Mickelson who became the oldest golfer to win a major. Koepka was about to answer a question when DeChambeau appeared to walk in the shot behind him. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Koepka was asked what he was able to do well. "I didn’t putt well but I don’t think any of the guys were going to putt well with this wind. It’s very tough.

He took a big sigh and rolled his eyes. "…. Sometimes, um … I lost my...
    According to the Daily Beast, a former employee of Bill Gates said the billionaire thought that convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was his ticket to being awarded a Nobel Peace Prize. An alleged ex-staffer told the Daily Beast that members of the communications team at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation were told Gate’s relationship with Epstein “was a maneuver to try to get himself a Nobel Peace Prize.” “We were aware of things that were potential reputational risks for the foundation and the co-chairs, Bill and Melinda,” a former employee said. “Even back then, people knew this guy [Epstein] wasn’t squeaky clean.” In fact, at the time of the relationship, Epstein was already a registered sex offender. “He [Gates] thought that Jeffrey would be able to help him, that he would know the right people, or some kind of way to massage things, so he could get the Nobel Peace Prize, which is what Bill wants more than anything else in the world,” the staffer continued. “I think he was ultimately disappointed it didn’t work out,” the staffer added. A spokesperson...

    What ultimately ended the nihilist Soviet system? Was it not that Russians finally tired of the Kremlin’s lies and hypocrisies that permeated every facet of their falsified lives? Here are 10 symptoms of Sovietism. Ask yourself whether we are headed down this same road to perdition. 1. There was no escape from ideological indoctrination — anywhere. A job in the bureaucracy or a military assignment hinged not so much on merit, expertise or past achievement. What mattered was loud enthusiasm for the Soviet system. Wokeness is becoming our new Soviet-like state religion. Careerists assert that America was always and still is a systemically racist country, without ever producing proof or a sustained argument. 2.

    WHEN Prime Minister David Lloyd George resigned in 1922, rumour has it that his fingers had to be practically prised off the door jamb of Chequers. He was the first PM to enjoy the grace-and-favour stately home that comes with the job and clearly hadn’t quite got the memo that he was merely a “guest” just passing through. 9Boris Johnson's Downing Street flat refurbishment may have cost him more than he thoughtCredit: AFP Consequently, it’s a funny old place. Having been there a few times (ooh, get me) while both Labour and Tory PMs were in situ, it has the faded splendour of a stately home hotel that’s in need of an update. Or let’s put it this way: The charitable trust that runs it clearly didn’t heed the old Ikea ad campaign urging us all to “chuck out the chintz”. As should be the case with “other people’s money”, they feel no need to splurge donated cash on a fancy refurb when the existing furniture is perfectly adequate to sit/eat/sleep on. It’s why — once the novelty of being...
    While Primrose Hill is best known for the somewhat louche antics of some of its starry residents, a rather more wholesome celebrity has just moved in. The Mail on Sunday can reveal that Taylor Swift is living in a £7 million six-bedroom townhouse in the North London enclave with actor Joe Alwyn.  The couple spent much of lockdown at his flat in nearby Crouch End. Ms Swift, 31, will have no shortage of famous neighbours, although it seems likely that she will be keen to avoid at least some of them. Two of her ex-boyfriends, singer Harry Styles and actor Tom Hiddleston, live little more than a proverbial stone’s throw away.  One Direction star Styles is based in adjacent Hampstead, while Hiddleston is thought to be less than a mile away.

    BOOK OF THE WEEK Icebound: Shipwrecked at the Edge of the WorldBy Andrea Pitzer (Simon & Schuster £20, 320pp) The name of William Barents isn't that familiar to us these days beyond perhaps a line of type on your atlas, marking a patch of blue north of Norway and Russia — the Barents Sea. But this enthralling, elemental and (literally) spine-chilling epic of courage and endurance should change all that. It certainly deserves to. Barents was an energetic businessman and seafarer in the early days of the new-born Dutch republic at the end of the 16th century, a tiny country that would soon become the world's leading economic and naval power. It was an age of adventure and exploration, of burgeoning science and medicine, and of great art — Vermeer and Rembrandt would be along soon. It was also an age of limitless promise, as the undiscovered parts of the world opened up their treasures. Icebound: Shipwrecked at the Edge of the World is by the author Andrea Pitzer and tells the story of explorer William Barents journey to the Arctic Seas...
    New York : President Donald Trump traveled to Texas. Photo: C-SPAN Capture / Courtesy President Donald trump denies any responsibility for the violent acts of his supporters on Capitol Hill, in addition to warning that the impeachment process against him is causing “a lot of anger.” He added that his speech prior to the riots was “appropriate” and not inflammatory, as claimed in the article that will be put to a vote this Tuesday in the Chamber. He said that the process against him is “a witch hunt.” “People thought what I said was totally appropriate”he stated shortly before traveling to Texas. He disqualified the Democrats’ effort to impeach him. “(It is the) continuation of the biggest witch hunt in politics”, he claimed. “Ridiculous … absolutely ridiculous … Something terrible what they are doing … It is causing tremendous danger to our country and anger.” There are reports of Armed mobilizations across the country ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inaugural ceremony. President Trump even agreed to approve an emergency declaration for Washington, DC, at the...
    Donald Trump was given two chances Tuesday to turn down the heat of his cultists and take responsibility for his role in last week's deadly attack on the Capitol as he addressed reporters at the White House and then once again at Andrews Air Force Base. He took a pass both times. Instead, Trump registered his grievances, calling impeachment a "continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics." Trump—forever the victim. And although he claimed he wanted "no violence," Trump blamed Democrats for the toxic environment and sympathized with his supporters. "For Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to continue on this path, I think it's causing tremendous danger to our country and it's causing tremendous anger." Trump also brushed aside any culpability for inciting the riot at the Capitol. "If you read my speech," he offered, "it’s been analyzed, and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate.” Actually, exactly no one has said that. His cultists listening to him at The Ellipse knew exactly what Trump instructed them to do, so they marched straight over to...
    To protect dentists from catching coronavirus, patients could soon be asked to wear open-faced helmets that suck up any COVID-laden droplets they cough up. Developed by experts at New York's Cornell University, the disposable, transparent helmets are connected to a pump that creates a reverse flow of air around the head. This ensures that any potentially infected droplets become trapped in the flow of air coming in through the mouth aperture — and are unable to escape the helmet. Alongside dentists, the concept could also be used by so-called otolaryngologists — ear, nose and throat doctors — who also need access to patients' heads and necks.  Healthcare professionals are at a higher risk COVID-19 infection because they often come into contact with symptomatic or asymptomatic patients. At present, protection comes from N95 masks and face shields, along with the use of empty clinic rooms or so-called 'negative pressure' rooms with air filtration. However, experts have warned that these measures are expensive and often neither highly effective nor accessible — unlike the new safety helmet. To protect dentists from catching coronavirus, patients...
    (CNN)In some hospitals, health centers and pharmacies in the United States, there are vials of Covid-19 vaccines that aren't making it into arms.Out of the more than 22 million doses of vaccine that have been distributed to hospitals and pharmacies so far in the United States, only about 6.7 million people have received their first dose, according to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.There's no one reason for the slow rollout or doses going unused; experts say it was never going to be easy to begin a mass vaccination campaign during a pandemic. It takes time to vaccinate and monitor large numbers of people, and some facilities are staggering staff vaccinations to avoid having too many health care workers out at once.JUST WATCHED'Bittersweet': Nurse who received Moderna vaccine describes experienceReplayMore Videos ...MUST WATCH'Bittersweet': Nurse who received Moderna vaccine describes experience 03:02The supply and demand don't always line up.

    Loading the player... If you needed evidence that some police officers are supporters of outlandish conspiracy theories, you now have your proof. As reported by Houston’s ABC 13 News, former Houston police captain Mark Anthony Aguirre, 63, has been arrested in a bizarre incident where he ran a man off the road and then held him at gunpoint because he believed he was the mastermind of a voter fraud effort in Texas. Read More: Bodycam video shows William ‘Roddie’ Bryan telling police he repeatedly tried to block Ahmaud Arbery car Aguirre terrorized an innocent air conditioner repairman whose truck contained air conditioner parts instead of the 750, 000 ballots Aguirre was expecting. It all began when Aguirre told police that he’d determined that the unidentified man, referenced only as DL, was behind a massive voter fraud plan in Texas, one of the states President Donald Trump actually won. According to court documents, he’d asked police to detain DL via a traffic stop, in October, but was told that wouldn’t happen because there was no corroboration for his...

UFO sightings across the city are up 31% from last year — 46, compared with 35 — and an eye-popping 283% from 2018’s measly dozen, according to the National UFO Reporting Center. Brooklyn is tops in tin-foil hatters, with 12 close encounters. Not far behind are Manhattan with 11 and Queens with 10. Staten Islanders claim just eight — despite the borough’s rep for not social distancing. The Bronx is even more grounded, chalking up a mere five. Two of the more memorable intergalactic incidents happened in the summertime, on Staten Island and in the Bronx. In the wee hours of July 21, an Islander spotted — and stared at — at an “oval” aircraft that “looked and sounded like...
    WARNING: This article contains descriptions of domestic abuse. Twenty-nine percent of Black women are hurt by an intimate partner in their lifetime. And in 2018, I became one of them. Like singer FKA twigs said on Friday in a damning lawsuit against her former boyfriend, actor Shia LaBeouf, people might not “think it would happen to you,” but “it can happen to anybody.” I was tough. I was strong. I was mentally fortified. And none of that mattered. A year-and-a-half ago, I started seeing a man who would attempt to mentally abuse me for months until finally hitting me at a crowded bar in downtown Manhattan, sending everything I “knew” I’d do if a man ever put his hands on me straight into oblivion. Instantly, I had become one of the more than 4.7 million women who were physically abused by a partner that year. It was summer when I made my bi-annual online dating account, putting myself out there for some artist or bartender in New York City to disappoint me for the umpteenth time. Eventually, I matched...
