The 21-year-old, who still has a large scar, told Chronicle Live: "I didn't realise how severe the burn was. "The skin on my leg started to peel off and it got infected." The gravy's oil content made it act as a 'fat burn', which differs from an injury sustained by being scalded with hot water.

    (CNN)Never in the modern histories of the United States and China has antagonism been so high ahead of a major leaders' summit. President Joe Biden and President Xi Jinping will meet virtually on Monday after a tumultuous start to the Biden administration's turn to manage relations with Beijing. After years insisting the US is not trying to contain China, no one in Washington is pretending anymore. While Beijing would prefer that Washington mind its own business, the list of US complaints is long and growing. Most alarming is China's intense pressure on the self-governing island of Taiwan amid a gathering debate in Washington about what to do in case of an invasion and deep concern about China's build-up of conventional and nuclear weapons. Biden's administration also accuses Xi's government of overplaying its hand in territorial disputes in the South China Sea, committing genocide against Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang province, and eviscerating democracy in Hong Kong. It's also frustrated that China has not done more to explain the origins of Covid-19 in Wuhan. The two leaders come into the talks --...
    Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) on Friday said President Biden lied when he claimed there is “no circumstance” of Americans being unable to access the Kabul airport, explaining her office has received reports indicating otherwise. “Joe Biden said there is ‘no circumstance’ where Americans have been blocked from the Kabul airport. This is a lie. My office has received reports of Americans unable to enter the airport,” she said, adding that her team has alerted the State Department but that “nothing has been done about it”: Joe Biden said there is “no circumstance” where Americans have been blocked from the Kabul airport.

    Outrage against budget airline Spirit Airlines has mounted amid a fourth day of chaos which saw 50 per cent of its flights axed, and distressing stories of travelers left stranded at airports.  The Florida-based air carrier canceled more than 340 flights before noon on Wednesday, half of their scheduled routes for the day.  Many passengers, including seven months-pregnant Robin Wilson, were left to fend for themselves. Wilson's intended flight from Cleveland to Atlanta was rerouted to LA. She was told by Spirit that she'd have to wait four days for the next flight, but Wilson did not have the funds to book a hotel to stay in.  She faced spending four days 'living' in the terminal of Los Angeles International Airport, and was only put up in a hotel when FOX 11 reported her story, and shamed Spirit into providing the 'high risk' passenger with accommodation.  'I definitely don't have a flight out from LAX to Cleveland until Thursday. [I have] no accommodations at all…I'm seven months pregnant, I'm high-risk,' Wilson told the network before her issue was resolved.  Spirit...

    If Marvel Studios has its way, people will get a new entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe nearly every week. Everything starts with WandaVision. Marvel’s new nine-episode show, which follows Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany’s Vision living out an absurd suburban life in an alternate universe, kicks off on January 15th. Two episodes will premiere, with new episodes releasing every week for the rest of the season. Just two weeks after WandaVision ends, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will arrive. It’s then three weeks until Black Widow hits theaters (unless it’s delayed again) and Loki lands on Disney Plus. By the time Loki ends, it’ll be time for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. You get the picture. Before Disney Plus launched, Marvel Studios solely worked on films. Television shows fell under Marvel Entertainment’s separate TV division. This includes the Netflix suite of series (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage), shows on Hulu (The Runaways), and ABC titles like Agent Carter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s what kept the Marvel Cinematic Universe separate from...
    VIDEO4:5204:52Dr. Michael Osterholm on joining President-elect Biden's coronavirus task forceSquawk Alley The coronavirus pandemic in the U.S. will face its darkest period so far over the next three to four months as cases continue to surge above 100,000 per day, a newly-appointed coronavirus advisor to President-elect Joe Biden said on Monday. "What America has to understand is that we are about to enter Covid hell," Dr. Michael Osterholm, director for the Center of Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told CNBC's "Squawk Alley." "It is happening." The U.S. is reporting a record-high weekly average of roughly 108,736 cases every day, growing more than 33% compared with a week ago, according to a CNBC analysis of data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. That figure is has grown dramatically in recent weeks, sending the U.S. pandemic deeper into its third peak ahead of Thanksgiving and Christmas. After a summer of surging infections across America's Sun Belt states, the country was able to suppress the average number of cases to just above 30,000 a day in early September. After Labor...
    Miami, Aug 28 . .- Former NFL player Brandon Marshall published a video on social networks in which guards went to the police when he arrived with his children at his new home in Florida and was “tired” of the discrimination against the black race in the United States. The African American says in the video to the guards that his presence is scaring his children who are waiting in the vehicle in which they arrived to release their new home. “This is the problem,” the former football player yells in the video to the security guards. “I come here, you feel uncomfortable, the first day I move into my new house, because my name is not on the list (and) you call the police,” he says frustrated. “No, you’re not trying to do your job. There was no threat of you calling the police. This is what we see every day,” Marshall lamented as two guards and a policeman looked at him. Marshall said on his Instagram account that he has been observing and prosecuting...
    New York Mets: Marcus Stroman about to enter the most important 60-game stretch of his life By: Andres Chavez July 13, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesAnyone that has been around Marcus Stroman knows that he doesn’t lack confidence. In himself, in his teammates, and in his abilities, above all things. Now, the New York Mets‘ hurler is confident that all the training hours he invested during the quarantine will pay off. Scheduled to be a free agent at the season’s end, Stroman knows that he will have to produce great numbers if he wants to earn the biggest possible contract. He is about to enter the most important 60-game stretch of his career so far. When Marcus Stroman joined the Mets last summer, the returns were not initially strong.

    Shoshana WodinskyJust now•Filed to:bad boys bad boysbad boys bad boysPoliceMasksSaveScreenshot: Youtube It’s safe to say that white America’s general image of police officers has taken a bit of a nosedive. A role that some folks respected more than members of Congress just last year has, in the span of about a month or so, become one that they’re terrified of, if not actively fighting to abolish altogether. And rather than try to regain their past rep, we’ve seen some cops across the country just... lean into being deeply shitty people that just happen to have a badge. Case in point: Earlier today, OregonLive reported on a video recording that shows a handful of State Police troopers sauntering into a coffee shop, without a mask to be seen—a move that doesn’t only shit on the mandated mask order that Governor Kate Brown passed on the day this recording was shot but also shits all over every academic and public health official that’s been telling us to keep these things on our damn faces for the past four months. When the store’s assistant...

The U.S. central bank, with Treasury’s backing, has launched programs to improve the flow of credit as economic activity cratered and millions of jobs were lost, including its new Main Street Lending Program for mostly medium-sized businesses.
