    A millionaire stockbroker turned island castaway has been forced to admit that he may need 'some help' as he nears 80.  David Glasheen, 78, has been living alone on Restoration Island, off the coast of North Queensland, Australia, after he lost his wealth in the 'Black Tuesday' crash in 1987. In 1991, he divorced his wife and moved to the island on the Cape York Peninsula six years later, where he has been living ever since - but only with the company of his beloved dingoes and two female mannequins ever since. But recently, he has admitted that his body 'doesn't work like it used to' and revealed he has recently suffered a string of health scares. 'I'm not 18 anymore, it's heavier and harder. I fainted one day and then fell and broke my hip. The phones don't work when you need them half the time, so the best security I could get is more people,' he told news.com.au. 'The wheels start falling off when you're 80. That's what happens.' Mr Glasheen said he was looking for people to...
    CALIFORNIA (KABC) -- Time is running out for tenants who need help to pay rent and utilities. California's pandemic eviction protection program ends on March 31, and those who haven't received rent relief from the state are worried about housing."I'm one step away from homelessness," said tenant Jenise Dixon. She has lived in her apartment for 19 years, but now she is concerned about the possible eviction."My apartment is rent controlled, and the new owners have really been trying to get me out at any cost necessary. Nineteen years, you can imagine the market price is way more than what I'm paying here, but moving just isn't not an option right this second," she said.Meantime, the slow rollout of rent relief is also putting tenants at risk."My application for rental assistance has been pending since October of 2021," Dixon said. "There's no way to go in to file more months because my application is pending. So what do we do about months that we are still behind?"According to the National Equity Atlas, more than 366,000 of the total 535,000 applicants...
    Russian supply trucks destroyed by Ukrainian forces. I served in the U.S. Army as an MLRS fire direction specialist. That is, I was command and control for rocket artillery, like the Russian GRABs that are now leveling entire cities. My job was to keep my MLRS platoon, three launchers, properly supplied.  My MLRS battery had nine of those launchers. I wanted to make sure I was remembering correctly, since it’s been 30 years since I served. Luckily, I found an MLRS battery org chart:  One of my unit’s HEMMT ammo trucks in action. To support nine MLRS launchers, we needed four HQ vehicles (M577, my home for three years), 12 HEMTT ammo trucks, to shuttle ammo from weapons depots to the launchers. Two fuel tankers. Eight 2.5 ton trucks—for ferrying food, small-arms ammo, and mechanical spare parts. Two 5 ton trucks, for the same purpose. One recovery vehicle, to tow broken vehicles away (which happened like every five miles of movement). And 26 Humvees—to carry leadership (both officers and and non-commissioned officers), mechanics, the guy who ran the armory, the guy...
    RENTON, Wash. (AP) — In the middle of the locker room after their first win since Halloween, Pete Carroll shouted “We ain’t dead yet, boys!” Technically, that’s correct. The Seattle Seahawks aren’t dead in the sense of still having a small percentage chance of reaching the postseason, even though it seems highly unlikely. But what Seattle showed on Sunday in its 30-23 win over San Francisco should be recognized. Having lost six of seven and sitting at 3-8 entering the week, the Seahawks could have easily punted on the season. Instead, Carroll and his veteran leaders such as Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner found the right words to get the Seahawks to buy in, for at least one more week and keep alive those small percentage chances of finding their way back into playoff contention. And they played aggressively and in some ways without caution for the first time since before Wilson was hurt back in early October. It was a victory that was sometimes ugly, sometimes mistake-filled, but wildly entertaining. “It’s the guys that keep...

    I had the great good fortune of having a wise Black woman as my supervising editor back when I was a beat reporter for a southern daily newspaper. We lost touch over time, but reconnected thanks to social media. She has since become an enthusiastic supporter of the Editorial Board and a counselor of sorts. Politics has a center of gravity, but it's often hard to see. If there's anyone who sees it frequently, it's Miss C. So I'm taking her critique of yesterday's post seriously. The post was about the long-held view among Democrats and liberals (including me) who believed big, bold action by the congressional Democrats would yield victory on Election Day. The results in Virginia, however, pour ice-water all over that presumption, and raise a troubling question: "What if respectable white people believe the advantages of white supremacy are more important than trillions spent in their name?" This is what Miss C said: This analysis is doing what most of the current analysis of the Virginia election and the Biden administration is doing: centering whiteness. Biden is...

    Getty Darius Slay was searching for a palate cleanser after Sunday’s 42-30 loss. The Pro Bowl cornerback can’t stomach the taste of losing one game, let alone three straight. Slay was asked how he felt following another mistake-filled affair for the Philadelphia Eagles. Honesty set in and he blurted out: “This s*** sucks”, then pitched a great idea for an orange juice commercial. “I feel the same way after one loss as I do three. We gotta get in that win column,” Slay said. “I gotta get this taste out of my mouth. It tastes nasty. I’m finna go find me some orange juice and spray it in the back of my throat.” #Eagles CB Darius Slay hates the taste of losing after losing 3 straight "I need to get that taste out of my mouth, taste nasty!

As the season ends, fans responded to what they think the Pirates need to do to get back to the postseason. The usual answers were heard from fans – payroll, ownership, and the roster. “Spend some money, please!” One fan said prior to the game. “Nice stadium, just got to get a better team, spend some money, you know?” READ MORE: 'This Is A Brotherhood:' First Responders Gather To Pay Respects To The FallenAs expected, fans were not happy with the ownership. “Get rid of Nutting, got to get rid of him and maybe you’ll get a winning team,” another fan added.

    ARCADIA (CBSLA) — Thousands of California residents could lose their fire protection insurance and face sky-high premiums after a state moratorium that protected them recently expired. Some homeowners say they are already feeling the impacts and worry about what’s next. READ MORE: LA County Reports 5 New COVID-19 Deaths; Hospitalizations Hold Steady “This time, they gave us an increase on the bill, so we’re not happy about it,” said Arcadia resident Imy Dulake. Dulake just got a notice letting her know that beginning in November, it’s going to cost her family more to insure their Arcadia home against fires. Now that the state’s moratorium guaranteeing insurance in wildfire-prone areas has lapsed, experts say this is something many homeowners can expect. “Unfortunately, particularly those near the wildland-urban interface are gonna face significantly higher rates and difficulty renewing,” said Cal State Northridge Professor of Insurance and Finance David Russell.

    Washington, DC (CNN)Frustrated Tesla owners continue to wait for "full self-driving," an expensive and long-delayed software feature that isn't even guaranteed to help their cars' resale values. Some of the company's earliest backers of the "full self-driving" option are even beginning to lose faith in the promise of ever enjoying a truly autonomous Tesla.Years-long delays, buggy beta software, and the risk of no return on their investment in the option package have left some Tesla owners disappointed. Tesla CEO Elon Musk's prognostications, and Tesla's actual reality have diverged so much that some owners describe to CNN Business that they've lost confidence in his predictions. Some otherwise satisfied Tesla owners describe feeling duped into buying "full self-driving" ahead of its polished release, because Musk warned that the price would increase. CNN Business interviewed eight Tesla owners to discuss "full self-driving." The option has been offered since 2016, when Tesla claimed all its new vehicles had the hardware for "full self-driving." Paying extra for the "full self-driving" software seemed like a worthy investment as Musk claimed it would be finalized in 2018....

    Even if Stephen Curry couldn’t lead the Warriors past the Lakers in the play-in tournament opener, he did enough in the eyes of some experts to prove he has no equal on the court. Then again, Curry still came up short in trying to convince other analysts the Warriors will survive Friday’s do-or-die play-in game against the Grizzlies. It didn’t take much time after Curry’s dazzling 37-point effort in the Warriors’ 103-100 loss to the Lakers for the plaudits to come raining down like one of Curry’s moonshot 3-pointers. “As far as I’m concerned, right now, he looks like the best player in the world,” ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said Thursday morning on “First Take.” Even one of the greatest Lakers of all-time, Magic Johnson, admitted Curry was on another level while hitting six 3-pointers and nearly upsetting the defending champions. “I saw my MVP choice Steph Curry put on a show tonight scoring 37 points against the Lakers,” Johnson tweeted, before adding, “It took LeBron’s unbelievable 3-point shot to beat Steph Curry and the...
    President Joe Biden grew emotional talking about the advice he thought his late son would give him as he navigates the country's highest elected office, more than 100 days in. “Every single time we’d talk about a political issue, he’d say, 'Dad, look at me. ... Remember, home base. Home base. Be who you are,” Biden said in an interview with MSNBC. BIDEN COULD WAIVE JONES ACT TO CURTAIL FUEL SHORTAGE, WHITE HOUSE SAYS The president faces mounting political challenges, including negotiations with Republicans over a sweeping infrastructure bill, gas shortages in parts of the country, and a race to increase vaccines in arms across the country. “The one thing that I'd hope that he would say is, ‘Dad, you’re home base, you’re sticking to it. Some things are worth losing over, old buddy,'" he said while tearing up, adding: "I haven’t done this this long to do things that I don’t believe.” Beau, a former state attorney general of Delaware, died in 2015 of brain cancer. He was 46. Biden was vice president at the time, under...
    Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal have developed a pretty bitter rivalry. While both play it cool and act like the other doesn’t bother them, the nasty side crops its head up whenever they are interviewed. But Usman operates himself with a lot of class. As a result, his latest bit of trash-talk saw him give a very backhanded compliment to Masvidal. While speaking to Brett Okamoto of ESPN, Usman was asked about Masvidal and how his star power may be affected by a second loss to Usman. The Welterweight Champion seemed unfazed by the question and answered in a very honest way.

Geeks lose their ‘go-to place,’” Page A1, Feb. 25 ), I wonder about the many communities that benefited from their support. As a former administrative assistant to John Fry, one of the tasks he gave me was to reach out to all the high schools in San Jose and ask their athletic directors for a wish list. Most sent me lists of very inexpensive equipment such as balls and volleyball nets. Few asked for new wrestling mats or training equipment for football they never dreamed of owning. As I sat with Mr. Fry and these lists, I expected to be given a budget and asked to reduce the list. Instead, I was told to get to work toward purchasing everything. As companies close, we are losing more than what they are selling but what they invested into their communities. Kristen Brown San...
    COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) — Schools across Vermont have lost track of some students during the pandemic, and are seeking to reconnect with them. Principals report that truancy has been on the rise since the COVID-19 pandemic began, said Jay Nichols, head of the Vermont Principals Association. The Agency of Education is trying to determine the scope of the problem and last week it sent a survey on the topic to Vermont school districts. “For whatever reason, the students are just not doing their classwork, they’re not signing into Google meets, they’re not coming in for their in-person days, and so it’s a real problem,” Chris Young, the principal of North Country Union High School in Newport told Vermont Public Radio. Nichols says that in addition to the challenges of virtual learning, the pandemic has also increased financial stress for some families that were already on the economic margins. Young said getting students back into school isn’t about punitive measures. “It is about, ’We want you back, we need you back, we miss you when you’re not here, and what can...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — It was supposed to be back to the classroom today for thousands of Chicago Public Schools teachers and staff, but some of them are refusing to do so because they don’t feel safe returning to school buildings, and the Chicago Teachers Union says they shouldn’t have to. The union held an online press conference this morning, on the day teachers and staff who serve preschoolers and some special education students were slated to return to school buildings. During that meeting, some teachers said they already signed letters to their principals letting them know they won’t be in the classroom today. “They need to see my mouth,” teacher Linda Perales said. “If I put a face mask on, and I’m teaching from the building, … how are my students going to learn their letters and their sounds?” That’s one of the reasons why some teachers say going back to school buildings doesn’t make sense. They said, depending on the classroom, being masked and teaching students won’t work. They also argue school buildings are unsafe, and that the safety...
    Lewis Hamilton has some work to do on his tennis game. After sharing a video of a match against his dad, several tennis icons had a laugh at his expense. Others were more encouraging, including Billie Jean King, who noted that he has to start somewhere.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Lewis Hamilton is a world champion Formula 1 driver, but when it comes to tennis, he's an amateur. Hamilton shared a video on Instagram of a game of tennis he played with his father.

    Mississippi State football coach Mike Leach didn’t sound happy with his team Saturday after losing to Kentucky 24-2. According to ESPN, Leach told the media after the loss, “We’re going to have to check some of our group and figure out who really wants to play here because any malcontents, we’re going to have to purge a couple of those.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) I’m glad to see that Leach is in rare form as always.

    New York Yankees finally receive some positive injury news By: Alexander Wilson August 29, 2020 PrevPreviousThe pressure has turned up on Yankees GM Brian Cashman ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Yankees have gone weeks without positive injury news, losing some of their best players to the plague that is currently running through the organization. From the starting infield to the bullpen, the Yankees have been hit from all angles and are currently on a seven-game losing streak. If there was any indication of struggles, losing both games in a doubleheader against the Mets on Friday certainly brought things to our attention. While manager Aaron Boone was able to climb to 103 wins last year with mostly reserve players, this year hasn’t been able to replicate that success. However, the Yankees did learn of some positive news over the weekend, as DJ LeMahieu was reinstated and will be active for Saturday’s game. LeMahieu has been rehabbing a sprained left thumb since injuring it against the Boston Red Sox about two weeks ago. At...
    Prince Harry has become a 'shadow of his former self' and lost some of his 'charismatic, mischievous charm' since moving to LA with Meghan Markle, according to a royal biographer. Angela Levin, who wrote Harry: Conversations with the Prince in 2018, appeared on ITV's Royal Rota last Friday, and revealed that the Duke of Sussex, 35, had 'changed enormously' since their first meeting for her work. The London-based author also said Harry, who is currently living in Meghan's hometown with their son Archie, one, seems to be focusing on the negatives in his life rather than the positives. Angela was referring to the stories published in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's bombshell biography Finding Freedom - which makes new claims about tensions between the couple and the Royal Family.

    When HBO Max launched, one of WarnerMedia’s big selling points was having the entire Harry Potter collection available to stream. Three months later, that’s no longer the case. An email detailing what’s coming to and leaving HBO Max in August points out that all eight movies, from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, will leave the service on August 25th. It’s unclear where the films will wind up, but speculation is already circulating over whether the films will move to NBCUniversal’s new streaming service, Peacock. That’s because years prior to HBO Max’s launch, WarnerMedia signed a deal with NBCUniversal that gave the latter company exclusive rights to the Harry Potter series through 2025. Through that deal, most insiders assumed Harry Potter, one of WarnerMedia’s biggest properties, would not be on HBO Max for years to come. The night before HBO Max launched, however, WarnerMedia executives struck a deal with NBCUniversal to have all eight Harry Potter movies premiere on HBO Max. Now, those same movies are leaving. It’s unclear when...
    TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) — Some New Jersey restaurant owners who planned to welcome indoor diners this week will have to wait. And that is hitting some hard. Gov. Phil Murphy says his goal is to stay ahead of the virus. And after seeing the increase in COVID-19 cases over the weekend, he decided it was important to push back the date indoor dining can resume. New Jersey Asking Travelers From 16 States To Self-Quarantine That decision is costing restauranteurs thousands of dollars. In preparation for Thursday’s grand reopening, the owner at Shana’s Wild Fig restaurant, who’d only been in business a few weeks before COVID-19 hit, went all in for anticipated guests. News indoor dining is now postponed indefinitely hit hard. Right now she says even with outdoor dining and takeout, revenue for the high-end dining restaurant is down 93%. The fear is that the establishment won’t be able to survive with no funding from the state or clientele for much longer. Gov. Murphy says although frustrating, his decision is to help save lives. “Indoors, lacking ventilation, sedentary, close...
    VIDEO2:2602:26Scott Gottlieb: I'm more concerned about Covid-19 spread heading into the fallSquawk Box As new coronavirus cases surge in several states across the American South and West, the hardest-hit areas are now "on the cusp of losing control," former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC on Thursday.   The coronavirus continues to infect about 20,000 people in the U.S. everyday, though that national figure masks what's occurring locally as the virus is driven down in cities like New York that were first hit and finds new communities to infect. "The question is 'can we keep this from getting out of control.' This is a virus that wants to infect a very large portion of the population," Gottlieb said on CNBC's "Squawk Box." "They're on the cusp of losing control of those outbreaks in certain parts of those states. Arizona, Houston, Austin, parts of Florida certainly look very concerning right now." Cases have been gradually increasing roughly since Memorial Day weekend in a number of states, including Arizona, Texas, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas and others. In Arizona, some hospitals...
