    GARETH BALE and Aaron Ramsey are alarmed that Robert Page's Wales contract beyond the World Cup has not been sorted yet. Page had his current deal extended by the Football Association of Wales to the conclusion of November's finals after ending the Dragons' 64-year wait by qualifying for Qatar. 1Gareth Bale and his Wales pals are worried Rob Page hasn't had his contract extended yet despite helping to end his nation's 64-year World Cup waitCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun Contract talks have started between FAW and Page's representatives over a longer term deal to run until Euro 2024 but no agreement has been reached. Page took over as interim boss since Ryan Giggs was arrested in November 2020 and the Manchester United legend stepped down as Wales manager in June ahead of his domestic violence trial next month. Wales captain Bale has already publicly pledged his support that Page should become the nation's long-term manager beyond the World Cup where the Dragons face USA, Iran and arch rivals England in Group B. Bale said last month: "He is the...
    CHELSEA boss Thomas Tuchel claims it is a miracle his side have finished third as star man N'Golo Kante has missed most of the season. Tuchel compared Kante, 31, to some of the biggest names in football. 1N'Golo Kante has struggled with injury throughout the seasonCredit: AFP And he suggests the midfielder's importance to Chelsea is as big as that of Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool. Kante has struggled with injuries throughout the campaign and completed 90 minutes just ten times in the league this season.

    The representative for the district containing the entirety of New Mexico's border with Mexico is pushing for Joe Biden to keep Title 42 in place, claiming the president is out of touch with desires of real Americans and that her state doesn't have the resources to deal with the impending influx. 'If they do eliminate Title 42 completely, we may see up to 18,000 people per day coming across the southern border,' Representative Yvette Herrell told DailyMail.com in a Thursday interview. 'We don't have the resources to handle that because we just don't have enough boots on the ground,' she added. 'It just doesn't make sense that this administration now would be told these numbers, they're hearing these numbers, they know we're on track to meet that 2 million people here illegally, and yet, they don't seem to be alarmed about it,' Herrell said. 'And I think they're underestimating the concern the American people have.' Herrell said that her so-called PAUSE bill is gaining traction in the House, which would stop the administration from ending pandemic-era Title 42 until COVID...
    Washington, DC (CNN)Drivers with Tesla's "full self-driving" software often don't know what their cars will do next. Tesla owners have been wowed by their cars' new abilities, but some say they have also been alarmed and frustrated by the accompanying flaws. One second drivers find themselves praising the cars' skills; the next moment they're grabbing the wheel to avoid crashing or breaking the law. "Full self-driving" is a suite of driver-assist features that Tesla hopes can one day enable cars to drive themselves. (It's not fully autonomous today, but that hasn't stopped Tesla from calling it "full self-driving," which has angered some self-driving experts.) Other automakers like Mercedes-Benz, GM, Ford and Volvo offer cars with similar features that may change lanes, parallel park, identify speed limit signs and brake for pedestrians. But Tesla has gone further with "full self-driving," theoretically enabling people to plug in a destination and have the car drive them there. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has spoken of cars in the future driving themselves across the country, and traffic fatalities possibly being reduced by 99%. But the...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — It has been a violent week for passengers on CTA trains – with attacks and armed robberies having happened on two consecutive nights. As CBS 2’s Jermont Terry reported Thursday night, it is all leaving many to question just how safe they are while they are on board.

    THIERRY HENRY has questioned Chelsea's decision to bring flop striker Romelu Lukaku back to the club as they don't fit well together.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – South Miami Police Chief Rene Landa says he is alarmed and troubled by a new published report about how many officers have died as a result of the coronavirus. CBS4 News partner “The Miami Herald” reports that 28 of the 33 officers who have died in the line of duty in the past two years have been killed by COVID-19. READ MORE: Video Helps Identify Accused Porch Pirate In Fort Lauderdale, Suspect May Be Part Of Organized RingThe newspaper reports that Florida accounts for more than 10 percent of all COVID-19 deaths and that most victims are in their 40s and 50s.

That is what we emphasize with our officers. We are not forcing officers to do that. We can’t do that. But we advise them...
    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – EXCLUSIVE: Gun handling on Alec Baldwin’s "Rust" set in Santa Fe, New Mexico, appeared alarmingly "green," "immature" and "lackadaisical," according to sources close to the set who said they were horrified at times by some of what they saw. They observed the conduct before a fatal on-set shooting accident that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead and wounded director Joel Souza. One image taken behind the scenes on the halted film’s set, shown to Fox News Digital, shows 24-year-old armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed and two other women standing in a circle with a pair of Old West rifles and a revolver. Halyna Hutchins was a rising star in the cinematography world when she was hit with a projectile on set that ultimately killed her.

    Six months into Joe Biden’s presidency, we are starting to see evidence that the tide may be turning against him. The main culprit is the Delta variant that has upended hopes of having turned the corner on COVID-19. But a confluence of concerns (like inflation, violent crime, and the border) are also helping erode optimism about the future. Until recently, there was a sense that COVID-19 was waning and by competently overseeing the distribution of vaccines, Biden would preside over a recovery where life would return to normal and the economy would bounce back. But the Delta variant has caused us to reconsider and revise many of our assumptions, including the political implications of presiding over the recovery. Consider this tweet from Bill Kristol, the NeverTrump conservative who has been very pro-Biden: “I am alarmed… about COVID, and how the broad social and economic reopening people are counting on is at risk. And I’m alarmed [that] the Biden Administration doesn’t seem alarmed enough, and doesn’t seem to have enough urgency about this threat.” Thanks to the rise of the Delta...

It was around 9:30 Friday night when Sacramento police showed up at the mother’s apartment and found her dead inside.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin’s crackdown on domestic dissidents and military buildup along Ukraine’s border is driving relations between Moscow and the Western powers toward a perilous inflection point, according to U.S. and European officials. “With Putin, we don't have luxury to be naive,” a Baltic official said. “We don’t need to panic, we don’t need sabre-rattling, but we need to be very firm and consistent.” A cascade of crises has erupted between Putin’s government and capitals across NATO, with the newest centered on Prague, where Czech officials decided to expel 18 Russian officials attached to the embassy in retaliation for an alleged Russian intelligence operation that destroyed an arms depot in 2014. That uproar only adds to the acrimony between Putin and the former Soviet satellite states, while President Joe Biden has imposed new sanctions on Russia in retaliation for Moscow’s interference in U.S. elections and a major cyberattack against American companies. “There has been instability and unpredictability injected into this relationship, and that has been done by the actions of the Russian Federation and by President...
    SACRAMENTO —  Citing recent mass shootings in Orange, Boulder, Colo., and the Atlanta area, state lawmakers on Tuesday advanced a proposal for a new tax on the sale of guns and ammunition in California to boost funding for violence prevention programs. The legislation by Assemblyman Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) would place a $25 excise tax on retailers for the sale of each new gun and an as-yet-undetermined levy on ammo sales to raise millions of dollars to fund the efforts. “Gun violence will not end on its own,” Levine told the Assembly Public Safety Committee during a hearing Tuesday. “We must take responsible action to end the public health crisis that is gun violence in our state, in our nation.” The panel voted 5 to 2 along party lines to approve the legislation, which still needs approval from the full Assembly. In backing the tax, lawmakers cited a string of mass shootings including one on Wednesday in which a gunman killed four people, including a 9-year-old boy, at an office park in Orange. A week earlier, on March 22, a...

Wood posted a letter from Rubio to the Acting Attorney General of the United States and the director of the FBI on Instagram on Tuesday, a day after the actress accused Manson of years of abuse.  Several other women also came forward with accounts of abuse by Manson, 52, who has denied the accusations as 'horrible distortions of reality'. 'The alleged victims have named Marilyn Manson, also known as Brian Hugh Warner, as the perpetrator.  'I ask that the U.S. Department of Justice meet with the alleged victims immediately and investigate these accusations,' Senator Rubio wrote in the letter.

    CARACAS (Reuters) - The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) on Monday expressed concern for dozens of Venezuelan migrants, including 16 minors, who were deported from neighboring Trinidad and Tobago, and whose whereabouts it said were unknown. Millions of Venezuelans have fled an economic collapse in their homeland in recent years, with around 40,000 settling in the neighboring dual-island nation. More than a dozen Venezuelans have been missing since vessels they boarded in attempts to get to Trinidad sunk. "The IACHR urges Trinidad and Tobago to strictly observe the duty of special protection of (children and adolescent) migrants and to consider their best interests in all decisions that affect them," the IACHR, a body of the Washington-based Organization of American States (OAS), wrote on Twitter, adding that some of the minors were unaccompanied by their parents. Neither Venezuela's information ministry nor Trinidad and Tobago's foreign ministry immediately responded to requests from Reuters for comment. David Smolansky, an exiled Venezuelan opposition leader who coordinates the OAS's response to the once-prosperous OPEC nation's migration crisis, said the minors as well as 13...
    Vladimir Putin today voiced concern over Russia's 'alarming' spike in coronavirus deaths, warning officials not to 'pretend that all is fine'.  Putin told a government meeting that 'the number of new cases is rising... and what's most alarming - the death rate is increasing', after a record high of 456 fatalities today brought the total to more than 34,000.  Like most of Europe, Russia has suffered a sharp rise in new infections but has stopped short of introducing strict new measures like Britain, France and others.   In a further blow today, smoke was seen billowing from Moscow's Kommunarka hospital after a medical complex caught fire at one of the capital's main coronavirus centres.   Vladimir Putin takes part in a government meeting by video-conference today from his residence outside Moscow, where he voiced concern about an 'alarming' rise in fatalities  Infections and deaths initially peaked in Russia in May and June before beginning a long decline which brought them down to relatively low levels by late August.  But they have since surged to new highs, with infections now rising by an...
    Supporters of President Donald Trump protesting in Washington on Saturday spotted a live MSNBC report taking place, and quickly approached and began shouting “fake news” at reporter Ellison Barber, who became alarmed as they pursued her and her crew. Barber was reporting from the street, describing the scene and saying that the event was organized by The Proud Boys. During that report, the crowd could be heard shouting “Fake News”, the volume increasing as they approached the shot. The video is not ideal, and the feed was interrupted with interference several times as the crew moved, but Barber’s narration could be heard continuously. “The crowd here is chanting ‘fake news, fake news,'” said Barber. “Not fans of ours, as you can tell. Which that’s fine as long as they give us a little space.” “It’s hostile here, at least for us,” she continued. “They’re following us and chasing us as we walk further back.” As she finished her report she said “this gives you a sense of the crowd here. They have no intention of accepting the election results....

    Boston Police Commissioner William Gross says he's feeling uneasy after an incident Tuesday involving a group of “hostile” protesters that allegedly interfered with a firearms arrest. The department said in a statement covered by CBS4 that officers on duty June 23 were “surrounded and assaulted” by the crowd around 5:40 p.m. while attempting to engage the suspect, who was wearing a fanny pack and had been reported to have a weapon.

    Bartenders over the weekend began mixing drinks, gyms turned on elliptical machines and nail salons began polishing away as Los Angeles County reopened more of its economy even as coronavirus cases continued to rise. The county, a hotbed of COVID-19 in California, now has reported more than 3,000 deaths and 80,000 confirmed cases. The rising case numbers have sparked some worry about whether the economy is reopening too quickly and that easing stay-at-home orders could cause new outbreaks. But health officials continue to discount those concerns, saying total new cases is not the best measure of community spread because of aggressive levels of new testing. They point to other metrics they say show that the local outbreak has stabilized — even though the number of new cases increased by nearly 20,000 in the last two weeks and by more than 3,600 just over the weekend. Two key indicators — the positivity rate and average number of daily hospitalizations — have continued to remain relatively steady, while average daily deaths have declined, L.A. officials said. It is always possible these numbers...
    Global public health experts are looking on in “alarm and disbelief” as the U.S. economy reopens even as Covid-19 case numbers continue to rise in a number of states, with President Donald Trump signaling he has no intention of calling for more economic shutdowns regardless of the outcome. As The Washington Post reported Friday, newspapers across Europe have recently published articles and editorials expressing shock at the Trump administration’s approach to the pandemic. “U.S. Increasingly Accepts Rising Covid-19 Numbers,” read a headline this week in the Swiss paper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. “I’m becoming convinced that Covid is not far from taking on the characteristics of gun violence. The U.S. will endure much higher, persistent negative effects from something that other countries have solved; we’ll normalize it and convince ourselves nothing can be done.” —Michael Rozier, St. Louis University While images of Americans crowding onto beaches and other public places may have given the international community the impression that the public have grown impatient with social distancing, a survey by the Associated Press last month showed 83% of Americans were concerned lifting lockdown orders too quickly would lead to more coronavirus infections. But as...
    CAIRO (AP) - The United Nations raised the alarm Tuesday about the detention and mistreatment of a large group of Egyptian citizens in Libya, in possible violation of international law. Graphic footage has surfaced on social media in recent days that purportedly shows militias allied with Libya’s U.N.-supported government abusing scores of Egyptian migrant workers captured in the western city of Tarhuna. Egypt has supported east-based military commander Khalifa Hifter against the forces of the U.N.-supported government, based in the capital, Tripoli.

    By CARA ANNA JOHANNESBURG (AP) — More than two dozen international aid organizations have told the U.S. government they are “increasingly alarmed” that “little to no U.S. humanitarian assistance has reached those on the front lines” of the coronavirus pandemic, as the number of new cases picks up speed in some of the world’s most fragile regions. The letter obtained by The Associated Press and signed by groups including Save the Children, Mercy Corps, World Vision and others says that “in spite of months of promising conversations with USAID field staff, few organizations have received an executed award for COVID-19 humanitarian assistance.” It calls the delays “devastating” and says the window is closing for the U.S. to help mitigate the worst impacts of the pandemic around the world. The letter to U.S. Agency for International Development acting administrator John Barsa is dated June 4 — the same day that other USAID officials were touting the U.S. government’s “global leadership” in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. “To date, we have committed more than $1 billion to benefit the global COVID...

And the number one thing is, is that Officer [Thomas] Lane ... he tells officer [Derek Chauvin], the officer, the defendant ... that he has some concerns and of course, the defendant pushes back," Jones said while co-hosting "The Five."
