    The US housing market appears to be finally cooling off after seeing its least affordable days since the '80s. The number of homes being built and sold is declining, more and more buyers are backing out of deals, and some parts of the country are finally seeing price cuts. Pantheon Macroeconomics founder and chief economist, Ian Shepherdson, has called for a 15 to 20 per cent correction in an 'overvalued' housing market, which he warns is in a state of 'meltdown' with 'cratering demand.'   In a July 26 note, he declared we're no longer in a sellers' market and, 'the housing slump is deepening, fast... [this] will not be the bottom.’ While the housing market appears to be reaching a more stable state, the ups and downs of the real estate rollercoaster have left many home owners and prospective buyers in a state of doubt and upheaval. So, DailyMail.com spoke to a panel of housing market experts about what's going on in the market and where, why, and when to buy or sell your home.  The panel of pros features...

    NEW research on great white sharks off the coast of South Africa suggests that the apex predators can change their color to hunt their prey better. Gibbs Kuguru, a shark scientist and PhD student at Wageningen University and Research in the Netherlands studied the creature’s skin. 2New research suggests that great white sharks may change their skin color when huntingCredit: Getty “I began my research on the skin of sharks when I heard about some sharks in the Maldives that had developed a very peculiar skin deformity called leucism,” said Kuguru. Leucism is a skin condition that can cause a loss of pigmentation. “The presence of leucism raised many questions that led me to investigate the causes of the deformity, which taught me a lot about the make-ups of shark skin and the different adaptations they may have,” he said. While working at a cage diving company with great white sharks, Kuguru said he would often hear people noticing the sharks changing color.

    The belief that a woman’s actions are ruled by her hormones was once thought the height of chauvinism. Yet would we all be happier — and more successful — if we planned our lives around our menstrual cycles? For the idea that you can forecast ‘good’ and ‘bad’ times each month for every activity, from booking holidays to a dental appointment, is catching on. Even the U.S. women’s football team plan their training around their periods. And it’s backed up by science. A study at Heinrich Heine University in Germany found hormone levels in the second half of women’s monthly cycles corresponded to more generous behaviour towards those close to them — thought to be a way to attract reciprocal kindness post-ovulation, when we might have conceived.

    PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN hoped Manchester United would try to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as manager to avoid paying him off. The Argentine, 50, is set to leave the French giants after disappointing in the Champions League. 1Mauricio Pochettino has pocketed a £17million payoffCredit: AFP Pochettino will receive £17million in compensation for his troubles as he had one year left on his contract. But according to The Telegraph, PSG wanted United to try and appoint Pochettino having been linked to him after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama sparked debate on an Instagram post after she 'used the term womxn' when voicing her support for abortion care. Obama took to Instagram on Saturday to encourage voters to take part in the midterm primary elections, especially in states where a potential Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade overturn would likely lead to abortion bans. 'State lawmakers will have the power to strip womxn of the right to make decisions about their bodies and their healthcare,' one of the slides Obama shared read. The term 'womxn' is intended to be inclusive of transgender and non-binary people who identify as women, but critics say using the phrase erases the experience of cisgender women. Obama used the traditional spelling in the caption of the post: 'It's been a tough couple of weeks since we saw the leaked SCOTUS draft opinion on abortion.' 'If it comes to pass, we may soon live in a country where millions of women — not to mention our children and grandchildren — lose the right to make decisions about their bodies and their...

    A Miami mortgage firm is allowing homebuyers to use cryptocurrency that they already hold as part of collateral for the loan. Milo is prepared to lend out up to $5 million a time on individual home loans which require borrowers to pledge the full amount of the property in crypto before transferring them to a custodian for safe keeping.  Rather than paying for the property with tokens, the borrowers use their digital holdings with no actual down payment necessary.  It means the homeowners could potentially benefit on two fronts both with rising property prices and that of the crypto coins.  Florida mortgage firm is allowing buyers to make home purchases using cryptocurrency  Milo is allowing borrowers up to $5 million over a 30 year term at 3.95-5.95% But it also comes with increased risk using an already volatile asset to finance a purchase in the property market which may also face a slowdown in the coming months - just as borrowing costs go up.  The person selling the property receives dollars directly from Milo while the homeowner is further allowed...
    Boris Johnson jumped two-footed into the row over trans rights today as he said biological males should not be allowed to compete in female-only sports events. The Prime Minister also said that parents should have 'involvement at the very least' in decisions made by children to alter their gender. He made his weightiest comments so far on the issue as he faced a Tory split over a ban on conversion therapy.  The PM backs making the 'abhorrent' practice of trying to force gay people to become heterosexual illegal. But he has refused to extend the proposed ban on the practice to trans people - despite opposition from backbench MPs and the Scottish Tories. Speaking during a visit to a hospital in Welwyn Garden City, the Prime Minister said: 'I don't think that it's reasonable for kids to be deemed so-called Gillick-competent to take decisions about their gender or irreversible treatments that they may have. I think there should be parental involvement at the very least.' And he added: 'I don't think that biological men should be competing in female sporting events'....

    Oklahoma's governor has warned that criminals are trying to avoid jail by claiming Native American ancestry, exploiting a 2020 Supreme Court ruling that limited state control among the population living on tribal lands and with confirmed tribal ancestry. Kevin Stitt told Tucker Carlson that he had obtained a Native American Card, in what he said was a sign of how easily the system could be exploited. He told Carlson that 'literally half our state' was now off bounds to law enforcement thanks to the July 2020 ruling, which he said was causing a surge in crime. Murders in his state were up 15.3 percent year on year, according to data released in December, and aggravated assault 10.3 percent. Violent crime as a whole had risen by 6.6 percent, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations reported. The 49-year-old Republican said the situation was 'a real mess right now for Oklahoma'. 'We have people on death row that are doing 23andme DNA tests trying to get their convictions overturned,' Stitt said. 'It's preposterous.'

    Republicans never waste a crisis. Their goals for putting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to work for them are just emerging, but one is increasingly clear: Republicans think this is a chance to tank the fight against climate change. You might think that the fact that much of Russia’s leverage with the rest of the world comes from its ability to supply fossil fuels would be an argument for a transition to clean energy. But not to Republicans. Rising oil prices due to sanctions on Russia are, for them, an argument to drill more in and around the United States. “AMERICA NEEDS ENERGY INDEPENDENCE we had energy independence b4 Biden energy policy killed it,” Sen. Chuck Grassley tweeted, falsely. How false? “Even when demand plummeted in the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. still imported 7.9 million barrels per day, about double the daily use of Japan, the world’s fourth-largest oil consumer,” Politico reports. ”What’s happening in Russia and Europe is a stark reminder of the need to support American energy development, not hinder it,” Sen. Steve Daines said in...
    The former head of the Food and Drug Administration has said he fears that Pfizer's decision to delay its FDA application to vaccinate children aged under five may confuse and alienate parents. Scott Gottlieb, who has also called on the CDC to relax its national indoor mask guidelines, appeared on CNBC's Squawk Box on Monday. Gottlieb, who ran the FDA from 2017 to 2019, was speaking after the federal agency revealed on Friday that the application for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to be used in children aged six months to four years old had been delayed. He said that while it is 'appropriate for the FDA to be very cautious when you're dealing with a young child', that going 'back and forth' can make people lose interest. 'I do worry though, when you have a process that has seemed to deviate over the course of time, as this one has and also the boosters have, is that people lose interest,' he said on Monday. The former head of the Food and Drug Administration has said he fears that Pfizer's decision to delay its FDA application...
    Parents and medical experts are demanding that US schools stop forcing children to wear 'ineffective' face masks as COVID-19 positivity rates continue to decline and studies have shown mask mandates are detrimental to psychosocial health and academic success. Research also indicates there is 'a minimal reduction in COVID transmission with masks in schools' and minimal risk of deaths - while parents have repeatedly voiced that face coverings pose a greater hinderance to learning than they provide protection from the virus.  Health experts also argue the current coronavirus trajectory suggests Americans should be able to return to normality this spring, as infection rates continue to go down. In response, some states have even moved to remove restrictions, such as masking in the classroom. Former Food and Drug Administration commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said in an MSNBC interview Friday the US should be 'as aggressive' in lifting COVID restrictions as 'we were about putting them in place.'  '[We should be] willing to relax some of these provisions that have created a lot of acrimony,' Gottlieb said. 'We want our kids to try to get back...
    Nathan Chen skated his best short programme as the United States made a perfect start in the team event when the figure skating competitions kicked off at the Beijing Olympics on Friday. Chen's first place in the men's short programme was followed by Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue winning the rhythm dance with their season's best to put the US on a maximum 20 points, three ahead of the ROC (Russian Olympic Committee) skaters. Russians Victoria Sinitsina and Nikita Katsalapov, the world No 1s, delivered a below-par performance to end up second after the ROC's 18-year-old Mark Kondratiuk took third place in the men's short programme behind Japan's Shoma Uno. ROC are second with 17 points ahead of Italy in third on 14 and fourth-placed Japan who are a further point adrift. Chen, who at the Pyeongchang 2018 Games took a tumble in the team event and had a disastrous short programme in the singles, scored 111.71 points in front of a few hundred spectators at the Capital Indoor Stadium - 0.11 of a point short of his main...
    FAKE it till you make it. Who knew money could be the reason why a woman fakes an orgasm? 4Women are twice as likely to fake an orgasm with their male partners if they are the breadwinners in the relationshipCredit: Getty 4Weekly, women only make 81.7 percent of what men doCredit: Getty According to psychologists, women who make more money than their male partners are much more likely to fake an orgasm. After all, the more money you have, the more powerful...right? Society has always made men out to be the breadwinners and main source of income for a family. Though that may still apply to some, nowadays many women are bringing home the big bucks in their relationship, despite the gender pay gap. In 2020, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that women were only making 81.7 percent of what a man was per week. Even with this wage gap, they also reported that 29 percent of women were in fact the breadwinners in their relationship. Most read in LifestyleOH MY POD! Joe Rogan SAVAGES...
    Knowing that your partner has faked an orgasm may be one of the most morale-sapping experiences for men – but how much you earn may be the reason behind it.  Psychologists have found that women who make more money than their male partner are twice as likely to fake an orgasm in the bedroom.   Men who earn less than their partner may have a 'fragile sense of masculinity', due to the long-held archaic stereotype than men are the primary breadwinners.  As a result, it's thought women kindly try to alleviate the man's financial insecurity and boost their ego by faking orgasms during sex. However, protecting their partner's sense of masculinity may come 'perhaps at their own expense', as it stifles sexual satisfaction and honest communication, the experts say. Nearly one out of five women fake an orgasm, according to a 2020 survey, and on average, both men and women fake it about four times a month.  Psychologists have found that women who make more money than their male partner are twice as likely to fake an orgasm in the bedroom (stock...
    It's now, or possibly never, for the Hall of Fame bids of baseball's most notorious accused steroid users: Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens. Meanwhile other alleged cheaters like David Ortiz and Alex Rodriguez are getting their first crack at enshrinement into Cooperstown, where the Hall of Fame's Class of 2022 will be announced on Tuesday evening at 6pm EST.  Bonds and Clemens, who have eight MVP awards and seven Cy Young honors between them - are in their 10th and final year on the ballot for the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Due largely to allegations of performance-enhancing drug use, they have been unable to reach the 75 percent threshold to earn a place among baseball's greats. Bonds got 61.8 percent of the vote in 2021, and Clemens 61.6 percent. So far this year, Bonds has been included on 78.1 percent of public ballots tracked by bbhottracker.com, and Clemens is at 77 percent. The tracker has counted roughly 48 percent of the expected ballots, and players have historically received a lower percentage of votes from members who don't disclose their...

    NFL launched on the occasion of claiming ownership of its NFTs and its brand new site: NFL Across. The latter uses the same principle as the NBA Top Shot launched last year. NFTs are everywhere, so the famous Anglo-Saxon dictionary Collins has decided to make it the best word of the year. This abbreviation refers to the virtual tokens that occupy the entire world. They are works worth millions of dollars, until recently, if used by the art world. For some time, these little digital tokens have occupied other universes, making them easier on the gaming world. Taking the principle of historic bunnies cards that enchanted all football fans in the 90s and 2000s, the Sorare platform has established itself as a benchmark for these 2.0 card collections. If this site focuses on some success in the world of football today, similar efforts may emerge in other sports in the coming weeks. Inspired by Zora, the American football world and the professional North American league, the NFL, also decided to enter the NFT world. In the United States,...
    We've all had that unsettling feeling when you step onto a bridge and it starts swaying from side to side. Scientists had thought it was due to people falling into step with each other while walking, causing a synchronised pendulum effect as everyone moves from left foot to right foot and back again. But a new study has dismissed this so-called Kuramoto model, suggesting instead that bridges begin swaying when people walk with their own individual rhythm rather than copying each other.

    One of the world's great wildlife migrations will reach a hectic climax in coming days when millions of red crabs make a dash for the water on Christmas Island. When the tide is right, columns of determined females that have already endured a week-long march from their forest homes will plunge into the shallows. With their claws raised about their heads, they'll vigorously 'shake their booties' like they're in a mosh pit at a dance party, releasing sacks of eggs from beneath their abdomens.

    People work at Amazon on Staten Island in 2019. by Lakshmi Gandhi This story was originally published at Prism. Last week, activists and organizers from Amazon’s Staten Island distribution center traveled to their regional National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) office to deliver the signatures needed to formally request a vote to form a union. Shortly after the signatures were delivered, Natalie Monarrez noticed an instant change in the moods of her coworkers. “The people that want the union are really happy for us,” said Monarrez, one of the employees organizing for a union. “The people who are still unsure about it, I think are still in shock that we actually got to the point after six months of being able to file [the paperwork].” The independent Amazon Labor Union was first created by former and current Staten Island-based Amazon employees in April. Employees have been working for months to collect the signed union cards necessary to call for a union vote by the NLRB. Unlike other efforts by Amazon workers to collectively organize, the New York union is...

    Blind patients have been able to recognise family members for the first time in years after volunteering for a pioneering gene editing experiment. Michael Kalberer, 43, and Carlene Knight, 54, both suffer from an incurable eye disease which robbed them of their vision in adulthood. Earlier this year they were among seven patients who allowed scientists to modify their DNA by injecting the gene-editing tool CRISPR into them. While their vision has not been fully restored, they are able to see colors, navigate hallways and make out silhouettes. Mr Kalberer, from Long Island, revealed he was able to recognise relatives on the dancefloor of his cousin's wedding, something which had been impossible for years.  He told National Public Radio: 'I could see the DJ's strobe lights change color and identify them to my cousins who were dancing with me. That was a very, very fun joyous moment.' Ms Knight, from Portland, Oregon, said she could finally see color clearly for the first time since she was a child, which she described as 'just amazing'. To celebrate, she had dyed her hair her...

    CNN host Chris Cuomo delivered a bizarre “both-sides” rant in which he compared images of Border Patrol agents with the slavery era — then defended the agents as “doing their job” by charging Haitian asylum-seekers on horseback and using reins as whips to intimidate them. On Monday night’s edition of Cuomo Primetime, the host began a five-minute commentary by showing viewers one of many images taken at the U.S.-Mexico border showing Border Patrol agents on horseback intimidating asylum seekers.  This is the specific image Cuomo showed: PAUL RATJE/AFP via Getty Images The White House has called the images and videos “horrific,” and vowed to investigate, and Cuomo seemed to agree when he told his viewers “Yes, as an image, to me, it does smack of a bygone era, of slavery, aided by reports of people being beaten, whether with a riding crop, or the reins, most likely…” Cuomo then played video of Jen Psaki telling reporters that “I don’t think anyone seeing that footage would think it was acceptable or appropriate,” and added his own comment: “Well, somebody did, right?...

This is the first time since 2003 that the Kachina is the team's primary logo. To drum up excitement, the team even changed their Twitter bio to: "We heard you wanted white kachina back." You asked.

    Vice President Kamala Harris has slammed Texas' new law banning abortions after six weeks as she met with patients and providers, saying that the right for women to make decisions about their bodies is 'not negotiable'.   Harris met with abortion patients and providers from Texas, Mississippi, Kentucky and New Mexico to discuss the new abortion law implemented by Texas on Thursday - the same day the state was sued by The Department of Justice.  The law bans abortions after six weeks - a time frame in which women may not even know they are pregnant.  'The right of women to make decisions about their own bodies is not negotiable,' Harris said during the discussion. 'The right of women to make decisions about their own bodies is their decision. It's their body.' The law, which went into effect on September 1, was met with outrage and the state was criticized for it's 'unconstitutional' approach to handling women's bodies. The law allows the people who sue to receive bounties of at least $10,000 and makes no exceptions in cases of rape or incest, although...
    To understand how untouchable the yakuza crime gangs have always been in Japan, you only need to know how they used to rob banks. They carried no shotguns because there was no need for violence. And they wore no balaclavas because, far from hiding their faces, they were so proud to be members of the country’s most feared mafia clan that they tattooed their entire bodies and mutilated their hands by chopping off a finger, deliberately marking themselves out. For most raids, three men were enough . . . three men, with three cats. They stood outside the bank’s main doors, held the cats by their tails and swung them around their heads. The poor animals shrieked, people backed away in fear and the bank emptied. That was usually enough to bring the manager hurrying out to offer a generous loan on the easiest of terms: it would never have to be paid back. If that tactic didn’t work, the gang boss would send 100 men to queue up and each open an account for one yen (about a halfpenny),...
    USA Today believes Wisconsin might be in for a special football season. The outlet recently released a list of the eight teams “most likely” to make their first playoff appearance, and the Badgers were on it. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Wisconsin Football (@badgerfootball) USA Today wrote the following in part about Wisconsin’s outlook: Assuming Mertz develops in his second year as starter, the offense could have its best passing threat since Russell Wilson’s one season in 2011. The defense is again going to be great after finishing in the top 10 in scoring for the sixth time in seven seasons. Any run to contention will require a fast start with Penn State and Notre Dame among the first three games. It’s hard to disagree with USA Today’s assessment of the situation. The Badgers are primed for a monster year and if we’re ready to make the playoff, it’s this season. Graham Mertz has another offseason of development under his belt,...
    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WLS) -- Illinois Democrats had their day Wednesday down in Springfield and it's the Republicans' turn at the state fair.All three declared candidates for governor were there making their pitch, while several other more well-known politicians who are sitting on the bench are still leaving the door open to getting in the race.Among the most prominent is Congressman Rodney Davis, (R-13th District), who has flirted with getting in the race. He says he is still waiting to see how the new congressional maps are drawn before making his decision."There's one thing Republicans and Democrats know about me, I don't shy away from a fight," Rep. Davis said. "And if I decide that this is our next step towards serving the people of Illinois and the people of America, then we're going to go in and make our case, and then let the voters decide."RELATED: Democrats gather at Illinois State Fair for 'Governor's Day'Congressman Darren LaHood also weighing a run for governor but also waiting to see what the remap holds for him.The declared candidates including Darren Bailey and...
    Multiple rounds of heavy showers and thunderstorms are making their way to the D.C. region Wednesday. Here’s what you need to know. Widely scattered flare-ups of thunderstorms with possible heavy rainfall could occur during the early morning hours, similar to what happened Tuesday. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for the D.C. area until 10 p.m. Wednesday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms associated with remnants of Tropical Depression Fred will start moving through in bands from southwest to northeast from midmorning through midafternoon, coming to an end during the early evening. “It won’t rain everywhere at the same time, but those that get in the bands could see repetitive scattered storms, and the rainfall totals could add up,” StormTeam4 meteorologist Matt Ritter said. There is also a threat for isolated severe thunderstorms in those bands, and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out, Ritter said. Tropical moisture will lead to potential precipitation rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour, according to the National Weather Service. Localized storm total rain amounts in excess of 3 inches are possible....
    Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) took the position of letting people in his state make their own choices regarding the coronavirus vaccine, as Florida sees a serious rise in covid-19 cases. During an interview Scott gave to Fox News Sunday, guest anchor Bret Baier noted that President Joe Biden called out Florida last week when he said that “some governors aren’t willing to do the right thing to beat this pandemic.” The president also called on governors to let businesses and schools institute mask/vaccine mandates on themselves if they want to. Baier noted that Florida is currently witnessing a Covid surge, and then he turned to the fact that Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has signed an executive order barring schools from implementing a mask mandate. “Should he have done that now?” Baier asked. Scott answered that he has taken the vaccine and encourages other people to do so, then he started saying that the “frustrating” thing is that “since Covid started, it’s been all political.” He continued: Just give us good information. Americans are smart. They will make good decisions...

    A Fox News commentator has blasted Vice President Kamala Harris as 'politically very stupid' after she argued against voter ID laws, including those in some states that require a photocopy of ID to vote by mail. Harris suggested people who live in rural areas aren not able to make photocopies because they don't have a Kinkos or OfficeMax nearby, in an interview with BET News on Friday. Brit Hume slammed Harris, telling viewers the VP was 'trying to label Republicans as people who want to suppress the vote'.    He admitted the issue of voter I.D. is 'tricky' but blasted Harris for trying to 'make the most' of a fragile argument against it.    'A number of the things that the Republicans want to do in the laws they are passing across the country are things that are popular', he said. 'Voter I.D. is very high on that list'.   In a final dig at Harris, Hume claimed President Joe Biden's aides were probably considering whether it would be effective to continue allowing the VP to take lead on controversial issues.  'There are obviously people in...

    ICE deportations have dropped to their lowest level on record as Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admits he wants to make 'significant changes' to the organization.  Mayorkas made the remarks to The Washington Post on Tuesday - the same day 'frustrated' ICE agents told the publication that the Biden Administration 'doesn't have their backs'.  Less than 3,000 illegal immigrants were deported from the United States last month by ICE, despite border crossings surging to a 20 year high.   Mayorkas will release his first DHS budget request this week, and has already announced that two ICE deportation centers will close.  However, the Democrat told The Washington Post that he has no plans to abolish ICE, despite calls from more radical voices in his party to do so.  Instead, he says, he wants to 'reorient' the agency.    'I really want to elevate all of the other work [ICE] does and also ensure that its civil immigration work is well-focused in the service of the national security and public safety mission,' he stated.   However, Mayorkas' statement seem at odds with ICE...
    It was while on holiday, in a bed and breakfast, that Mark Daniel told his wife of 18 years about the six affairs he’d had during their first seven years of marriage. The couple’s daughters, then aged nine and 11, were in the next room. ‘When Mark said: “There’s something I need to tell you,” I thought he was about to say he had a terminal illness,’ recalls Christine at their home in Northumberland. They sit close together, looking at each other as they speak, one picking up when the other trails off. ‘We talked late into the night,’ she continues. ‘It was devastating. I’d had no idea. The sense of betrayal was vast. I was deeply hurt and angry.’ If Mark’s revelation in 2003 on their holiday in South Africa was like a bomb going off, the one that came next, that Christine had had an affair too — a one-night stand — was a second damaging strike at the heart of the marriage. Mark Daniel, 62, and wife Christine, 59, (pictured), who live in Northumberland, reveal how infidelity...
