    The mysterious fate of Olivia Newton-John's on-off lover haunted the singer in her later years after he disappeared without trace - amid lurid claims he faked his own death. Patrick McDermott, 48, went on an overnight fishing trip with 22 other people on June 30, 2005, but vanished before it returned to dry land without anyone noticing. For almost two decades afterwards, he was rumoured to be in hiding in Mexico, on the run from crushing debts. But repeated manhunts by police, media and private detectives have never been able to find any conclusive proof, despite constant reports of him being spotted. 'I don't think I will ever really be at peace with it,' Newton-John admitted.  'I think there will always be a question mark.'

    Fuel prices at a Chevron gas station in San Francisco June 9, 2022.Bloomberg | Bloomberg | Getty Images For months, drivers across the U.S. face have faced eye-popping prices when they fill up their gas tanks. Now, President Joe Biden is weighing a new remedy — a federal gas tax holiday. A gallon of gas now costs an average of $4.97, according to AAA. That's a slight improvement from earlier this month, when the national average crossed the $5 threshold for the first time. But prices are up from $4.59 a month ago and $3.07 a year ago. However, in some states — like Washington, Oregon and Nevada — average gas prices are more than $5.50 per gallon. In California, the average is currently $6.38 per gallon.

    Justice Clarence Thomas on Friday compared the leak of fellow Justice's Samuel Alito's draft opinion regarding Roe v Wade to 'infidelity.' Thomas, 73, said that the leak would weaken the public's trust in the Supreme Court as an institution.  He told host John Yoo that the leak from the Supreme Court was 'tremendously bad.'  Thomas pondered: 'I wonder how long we’re going to have these institutions at the rate we’re undermining them and then I wonder when they’re gone or destabilized what we will have as a country and I don’t think the prospects are good if we continue to lose them.'   He continued: 'When you lose that trust, especially in the institution that I'm in, it changes the institution fundamentally. You begin to look over your shoulder. It's like kind of an infidelity – that you can explain it but you can't undo it,' reports Politico.  Thomas was speaking at the Old Parkland Conference, a meeting of black conservatives, in Dallas where he was Friday's keynote speaker. Following his speech, Thomas sat for a questions and answers session with John Yoo...

    When the Minnesota Legislature reconvenes Tuesday, it will have four and half weeks before the state constitution says it must adjourn. Will the narrative be that a divided Legislature exercised compromise and got more done than anyone thought possible? Or will it be that election year politics got in the way of dealmaking? Here’s a look at six big issues that might still get finished — or be seen as the biggest lost opportunities of the 2022 Minnesota Legislature: Budget and taxes You might think it would be pretty easy to spend $9.25 billion (the amount of the state’s revenue surplus) and $1.1 billion (the amount left over from cash sent to the state by the federal American Rescue Plan). But when Senate Republicans and House DFLers have such different priorities as to how to do it, it can become victim to paralyzing partisan politics and philosophical differences. There should be enough cash for everyone — Gov. Tim Walz included — to get some of what they want. But that is only true if all three sides want to come...
    TikTok users are going wild for a face filter that claims to show women how to create the perfect brows for their face. The filter, created by Grace M Choi, uses the 'golden ratio' principle of symmetry to divide the face and create guiding lines along which women should reportedly base their eyebrows.  Women are shown where to start their eyebrows, where to end them, and how high they should arch, depending on the proportions of your face.  Grace M Choi, who created the filter, made a TikTok video showing how to use it to create well-shaped brows that are proportionate to your face Grace demonstrated how to use her video using an eyebrow pencil and gel. Pictured, Grace before (left) and after using the filter to create longer, thicker eyebrows Grace demonstrated how to use her video using an eyebrow pencil and gel.  In the video, Grace says: 'I created this filter to help you draw your perfect eyebrows according to the golden ratio.   'First, you're going to take your eyebrow pencil and make a mark where the blue dots...
    America's top infectious-disease expert hinted that he might retire soon due to falling COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, suggesting the pandemic might be over.  Dr Anthony Fauci, 81, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and adviser to President Joe Biden, told ABC's Start Here podcast that he is considering retiring as COVID cases drop and restrictions have been lifted across the country.  'I have said that I would stay in what I'm doing until we get out of the pandemic phase and I think we might be there already if we can stay this,' Fauci said.  'I don't have any plans right now to go anywhere, but you never know. I can't stay at this job forever.'   Fauci has served as public health expert for more than 50 years and has advised every American president since Ronald Reagan, becoming the nation's top COVID expert while drawing criticism over the nation's handling of the pandemic.   The hints of retirement came as he warned that easing restrictions, the waning protection from vaccines and the rise of the BA.2 subvariant in the...
    CNN host Van Jones blasted President Joe Biden as being 'foggy' and 'meandering' during his Wednesday press conference and compared him to an Alzheimer's suffering Ronald Reagan. 'I think you have to be honest that you can be a foggy, meandering president. Say, like Reagan near the end, if you're winning,' Jones said during the evening newscast. 'But if you are foggy and meandering on key questions and you're also not winning, then you've got a real problem.'     Biden, 77, has been criticized over his cognitive health since he first started his presidential campaign.  Similarly, Reagan - whose memory and cognitive function were impacted by Alzheimer's towards the end of his life - was scrutinized by the public as some speculated he was battling the early stages of the disease in the late 1980s while  serving his second term as president. Reagan was 77 when he left office in 1989. In 1994, he revealed to the nation that he was battling the disease. CNN host Van Jones said Joe Biden (left) was 'foggy' and 'meandering' during his Wednesday press conference...

The lovable group of characters was introduced to the public as wild, 20 something party animals, but recently many cast members have traded in nights out at the bar for long nights changing diapers.

    The Marriner S. Eccles Federal Reserve building in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Sept. 17, 2021.Stefani Reynolds | Bloomberg | Getty Images A major shift is underway at the Federal Reserve to begin to remove the central bank's massive pandemic easing policies and could see it hikes rates sooner than is priced in by markets. Comments by Fed officials suggest that the Fed is likely to decide to double the pace of its taper to $30 billion a month at its December meeting next week. Initial discussions could also begin as soon as the December meeting about when to raise interest rates and by how much next year with Fed officials set to submit a fresh round of economic forecasts and projections for the Fed Funds Rate. There is no consensus yet on when to begin hikes, but it's clear that the faster taper is designed to give the Fed flexibility to hike rates as soon as the spring. The markets do not appear to expect the first rate hike until the summer. St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said Friday...
    The reign of the Hoffa family at the Teamsters union is coming to an end as James Hoffa is finally stepping down aged 80, 46 years after his father Jimmy's mysterious disappearance. Jimmy, who was involved in organized crime and convicted of jury tampering, attempted bribery, conspiracy and wire fraud, is believed to have been murdered by the mafia in a notorious unsolved crime. James took the reins at the International Brotherhood of Teamsters which represents 1.4million blue collar and professional workers in the US and Canada, including factory workers, truck drivers and airline staff,  in 1999. The current membership includes around 350,000 UPS workers as well as staff from United Airlines, DHL and US Foods.  This month, the union will elect their first new general president in 22 years for the role still defined by Jimmy who led it from 1957. The Teamsters, founded in 1903, remains one of the biggest and most powerful unions in the US and owes its fearsome reputation to Jimmy's criminal links. The reign of the Hoffa family at the Teamsters union is coming to...
    MARSHFIELD (CBS) – Power and tree crews worked feverishly on Saturday to restore and clean up from the powerful Nor’easter that did widespread damage to many South Shore communities. And today’s stormy conditions are making things challenging. In Marshfield, generators could be heard outside many homes that are still without power. Eighty-three-year-old Phil Mason is one of them. “I’ve been hit in every storm since ’78. Seventy-eight was brutal – didn’t have a generator. This is probably the second most powerful storm,” Mason said.

    The ending of Sunday’s Mercury-Storm elimination playoff game was absolutely insane.  The second-round game between the Phoenix Mercury and the Seattle Storm was everything fans could have hoped for plus much more. Yes, the Mercury pulled out with an 85-80 win but it did not come easy nor without the exhilarating turbulence of overtime. To get to this second-round game, the fifth-seeded Mercury fought their way to victory against a young and tough Liberty team, while the Storm got to benefit from a first-round bye. With Seattle’s best player Breanna Stewart ruled out of the game and Mercury’s Diana Taurasi dealing with an ankle injury, both teams were handicapped to a degree but they poured out all they had for 45 minutes.Here are three insane things that happened at the end of the game:3. Phoenix kept missing free throws While practice may not always make perfect, it does usually make one prepared — that’s what should have been the case with the Mercury and their late-game free throws, but it surely didn’t seem like that. The team went 2-of-7 from...

    Television is full of shows with universally hated endings that for some even ruined the entire show. The two cases that people usually think of are Lost and Game of Thrones – 59%. It should be said that there is another that is often mentioned a lot on the internet. The end of Dexter. It is often thought that the ending is so abominable that it seems that the writers wanted to punish the audience instead of punishing the eponymous antihero. Do not miss: Dexter: John Lithgow will return for the new season of the series For this reason, what fans want in all these series is a new ending that washes away the bad taste in their mouths that the one that was originally broadcast left them. No studio is willing to accept their mistake entirely and pretend that what they created doesn’t work. And the creatives behind Dexter they are no exception. It was decided to revive the series, but they are not going to pretend that everything that happened before was a dream or something like that....

    Fiona Hill, who served as Donald Trump's top Russian adviser, said she considered pulling a fire alarm or faking a medical emergency to end the then-president's 2018 press conference with Vladimir Putin.  'My initial thought was just 'how can I end this?' I literally did have it in my mind the idea of faking some kind of medical emergency and throwing myself backwards with a loud curdling scream into the media,' she said.  And she told CNN: 'I looked around to see if there was a fire alarm but we were in a rather grand building attached to the Finnish palace that the Finnish president lent to us for the occasion. And I couldn't see anything that resembled a fire alarm.'

In an April 2015 panel hosted by the Human Rights Program at Harvard, entitled 'Globalizing Ferguson: Radicalized Policing and International Resistance,' Cullors shared her experience visiting the West Bank and Gaza with a delegation of other leftists. She said she saw 'violence' and 'terror' being committed by 'Israelis and Zionists' at the expense of Palestinians. 'Palestine is our generation's South Africa,' she told the students.

    Anthony Fauci has been criticized for insisting that children must still wear masks outdoors, with one opponent accusing him of speaking 'total, complete, blood-boiling nonsense'. The nation's top public health expert, who has been appointed Joe Biden's chief medical adviser, spoke to Today on Wednesday morning. In an interview that left viewers with more questions than answers, host Savannah Guthrie tried to get clarity on the new Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) guidelines. On Tuesday the CDC updated its advice, to say that fully-vaccinated people could now be outside safely, in small groups, without a face mask. In large crowds, face masks are still recommended. Fully vaccinated means having had the full course - two shots for Pfizer and Moderna, one for Johnson & Johnson - and waiting two weeks for it to take effect. People under 16 cannot yet be vaccinated, and so must continue to wear face masks in public - indoors and out. Guthrie told Fauci she found the CDC guidelines confusing, describing it as 'a strange situation'. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday morning appeared...

    As Ferrari aim to bounce back from a nightmare campaign in 2020, and ace driver Charles Leclerc will be expected to lead the charge. Although the team may not admit that he is the number 1 driver, by virtue of having more experience behind the wheel of a Ferrari, Leclerc will be expected to hit the ground running. The Monegasque spoke about the necessity of delivering clean performances on a consistent basis and priding Ferrari over any personal rivalry. Leclerc was one of the best drivers on the grid last year. Despite driving the lackluster SF1000, the Monegasque kept eking out impressive results, including two podiums. However, for someone as talented as Leclerc who wishes to improve more and more, consistency will be a key part of his gameplan.

    The posh Dalton School in Manhattan is mired in controversy after an eight-page memo of staff and faculty's anti-racist 'demands' was leaked, proposing sweeping changes to staffing, training and curriculum at the elite preparatory school. Frustration had already been mounting at the Upper East Side school, where the $54,180 annual tuition is unchanged despite in-person classes remaining cancelled since March -- even as other New York City schools reopened. It comes a month after television journalist Megyn Kelly pulled her two sons from the elite Collegiate School, on the Upper West Side, when a letter was sent around to faculty there that claimed 'white school districts across the country [are] full of future killer cops'. Then this week, the contents of the lengthy Dalton memo were first reported by The Naked Dollar blog, written by a finance author who has a child at the school. The memo signed by 129 faculty and staff members listed extensive proposals including the hiring of 12 dedicated diversity officers, giving half of all donations to New York's public schools, and the elimination of AP classes if black...

    New York Giants: 3 players that should be traded at the deadline By: Alexander Wilson October 24, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants fell to 1-6 on the season after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in week 7, and that all but writes the story for the rest of the campaign. General manager Dave Gettleman has some work to do if ownerships elects to give him the luxury of determining the future of the team from here on out. His questionable draft picks and poor allocation of draft capital in trades make Gettleman a liability at the moment. The Giants need to be thinking about their future and not relying on the past three years as a detriment to their hopes and dreams. With that being said, they must look to the November 3 trade deadline as an opportunity to gain valuable capital for next off-season. They currently only have five picks in the 2021 NFL draft and must add more, especially if they expect to be hiring a new general manager...

Nicky Gibbon, from West Yorkshire, is a volunteer at the Calderdale Breastfeeding Peer Support Service, which offers support and information to new mothers using their own personal experience and training.  In the video, posted on the organisation's Facebook group, Nicky used a solution made up of water containing blue dye and oil to represent the milk and squeezed it into wine glasses using a sponge to demonstrate the different stages of feeding.
