    Fox News host Laura Ingraham, a substantial supporter of former President Donald Trump, recently suggested that Americans might be prepared to move on as she argued a fresh Republican presidential candidate may fair better in 2024. The television anchor made her remarks during a recent discussion with podcaster Lisa Boothe. When she appeared on Boothe's show, she admitted that she believes it may be time “to turn the page.” “People conflate Trump with people’s overall sense of happiness in the country. Donald Trump’s been a friend of mine for 25 years, and I’m always very open about this on my show. But, you know we’ll see whether that’s what the country wants,” Ingraham said during an appearance on Boothe’s podcast.

"They’re exhausted by the battle, the constant battle, that they may believe that, well, maybe it’s time to turn the page if we can get someone who has all Trump’s policies, who’s not Trump.” According to Ingraham, Trump's play...
    A WOMAN who finally moved into the same house as her husband after 20 years living apart has admitted the move caused nothing but tensions for them. Claire Burke, 55, and her husband, David, 49, were married and shared a child together, but spent 20 years living in separate houses to keep the spark in their marriage alive. 5The couple say living together has been nothing but trouble for their relationshipCredit: Caters 5Claire and David tied the knot 20 years agoCredit: Caters They finally relented and bought a house together last year but now admit they have struggled with living under the same roof. Claire says she felt more like her husband's cleaner than his wife after she was landed with cleaning up his dirty clothes left lying around the house, toothpaste in the sink and his gym equipment, left scattered all over the garden. They've now agreed to split their shared house in two and have gone back to having separate bedrooms. The pair even watch TV in different locations in their home as they could never agree on...
    The Boston Red Sox finally won an AL East series on the saddest of baseball technicalities. On any given Thursday, the Boston Red Sox can actually win a series over a bitter division rival. The guys on this year’s team have more quit in their hearts than Bobby Hill. If you need evidence of that, just watch Jarren Duran quit on a fly ball that turned into an inside-the-park home run for the Toronto Blue Jays because the man refused to be hungry like the wolf. Chaim Bloom felt like destroying something more beautiful than Jared Leto’s face. Robert Paulsen has since died in vain. Thankfully, the Red Sox can throw a pizza party after winning a series over a bitter AL East rival! It may have only been a one-off over Buster Olney’s favorite team, but a victory is a victory, bruh. The Red Sox (55-58) have now won a series against an AL East team this season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this one game against the Orioles does count as a series. Boston wins, 4-3. Now...
    By Allison Morrow | CNN Business It seems the Elon Musk mystique — whatever combination of wealth, carefully cultivated charm and A-plus lawyers that have helped him emerge unscathed from countless scandals — is starting to unravel. Here’s the deal: Federal regulators just announced that Musk’s private space tourism company, SpaceX, will no longer receive nearly $900 million in subsidies that it was awarded last year because the company “failed to demonstrate that [it] could deliver” the internet service it promised. Let’s rewind for a minute. Back in December, the Federal Communications Commission auctioned off $9 billion in subsidies to internet service providers as part of a plan to bring high-speed internet to rural areas that need it. The fact that SpaceX received one of the largest tranches of that subsidy program was controversial because the Starlink network was basically brand new and unproven. Starlink’s system is wildly different from traditional high-speed internet, which relies on underground fiber optic cables. Starlink, however, relies on thousands of satellites working in tandem to beam internet access to the ground. The FCC...

    ARGUMENTS over snoring can finally be settled as Samsung has introduced a new detection feature on its latest smartwatch. The Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro are able to listen out for snores and record them. 2The Galaxy Watch 5Credit: Samsung You can even listen back to clips in the morning, allowing sleep deprived partners to finally prove their other half is keeping them up through the night.

    Getty Israel Adesanya attends UFC 277. UFC star Israel Adesanya would like to see a third fight between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko. Reigning UFC two-division champion Nunes shared a heated rivalry with the flyweight queen inside the cage. They competed against each other twice, with Nunes coming out on top of both contests. While the first outing was a decisive win for “Lioness,” the second one was a razor-thin split decision victory. Calls for the trilogy bout started picking momentum after Nunes’ historic win over the former bantamweight title holder Julianna Pena in their rematch at UFC 277. After falling short in their first encounter, Nunes made the necessary adjustments and dominated Pena for a record-breaking lopsided unanimous decision. In a recent video uploaded to his YouTube channel, UFC middleweight champion Adesanya sat down with Dan Hooker to discuss their dream match-ups in the promotion. “Stylebender” would personally like to see Shevchenko have at it against Nunes for a third time. “I’m going to go Shevchenko, I want to see her fight Amanda (Nunes) again,” Adesanya said....
    (CNN)After years of failed attempts to bring Neil Gaiman's acclaimed and surreal comic to the screen, Netflix finally creates a home for "The Sandman," armed with enough top-notch British guest stars to populate a Harry Potter movie. The resulting series is visually striking but dramatically listless, made for those -- and maybe only those -- who already possess degrees in Sandman 101.Gaiman joined in the adaptation process with Allan Heinberg ("Wonder Woman") and veteran comic-book-to-film writer David S. Goyer, who between this and Apple TV+'s confounding "Foundation" has carved out a niche shepherding projects deemed unadaptable to fruition in series form.In this case, the much-anticipated series follows a proposed movie that was to have starred Joseph Gordon-Levitt and an Audible podcast version introduced in 2020, so kudos, in a way, just for getting this far.Still, the dense fantasy elements and lyrical storytelling don't easily translate from page to screen, and the meticulous detail in replicating the look and tone doesn't create much emotional investment. That might satiate fans who can putty in the gaps, but in the context of a...
    WATCHING Keir Starmer plodding through TV interviews or PM’s Question Time is a grim ordeal. His words blur and the mind wanders . . . What is he saying? Why is he there?

Or the Tub of Lard on Have I Got News For You. Without wishing to be ­personal, he comes across as a bad actor playing a dreary role, badly. Now I know why.

    Will Smith has finally apologized for slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars and revealed that the comedian has not yet forgiven him.  The actor posted the video on Instagram on Friday where said he was 'fogged out' during his acceptance speech, and that is why he did not apologize to Rock.  'I've reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he's not ready to talk when he is, he will reach out.  'So I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I'm here whenever you're ready to talk.'  He also apologized to Rock's mother and his entire family.  'I just didn't realize how many people got hurt in that moment, so I want to apologize to Chris's mother. I want to apologize.'  Smith said his wife Jada did not instruct him to slap Rock, and that he takes full responsibility for what happened.  The actor posted the video on Instagram on Friday where said he was 'fogged out' during his acceptance speech, and that is why he did not apologize to...
    What about SALT taxes? The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which Republicans passed in late 2017, capped SALT tax deductions at just $10,000 per year. Since then, House Democrats, especially those from New York and New Jersey, have repeatedly urged for the cap to be rolled back. The Manchin-Schumer bill, however does not touch SALT tax deductions. "Our tax code should not favor red state or blue state elites with loopholes like SALT and should focus more on closing unfair loopholes like carried interest," Manchin said in a statement. It remains to be seen whether Democrats who campaigned on ending the SALT deduction cap will dig in and oppose the bill.
    Dear Amy: I’ve been married to my husband for 40 years. I have always felt like something was missing. Every time I try to reach out and connect emotionally, he becomes angry and withdraws. Frustrated with his distance and indifference, I recently said that I needed to know if he loved me enough to work with me on improving our relationship. He stated that he doesn’t know if he loves me because he doesn’t know how to feel love, because of the way he grew up. He did grow up without a father. His mother had five kids and no education. Her menial jobs kept her away from home and the kids had to fend for themselves. She was briefly married to an abusive man, but I don’t know the extent of the abuse. Knowing this explains why he has been distant and indifferent to me and our children all of these years. Related Articles Advice | Ask Amy: Should I tell this woman that I’m ignoring her?

    SAN CLEMENTE — Some good things are worth waiting for, like an ice cream cone on a summer day, a parking spot near a bustling beach or a clean bill of health with another Larry O’Brien Trophy to go with it. Klay Thompson knows that all too well. After spending the last three summers recovering from two major injuries, Thompson is finally getting to relax. “It’s the best offseason ever, especially when you win a championship,” Thompson said during a recent visit to Orange County, where he hosted a 15-year-old boy recovering from cancer. This downtime has been a long time coming for Thompson, whose last few summers haven’t at all felt like offseasons for the Warriors star. A torn left ACL in 2019 and a ruptured right Achilles in 2020 had Thompson out of commission for 2 1/2 seasons. But after a rough few years, Thompson, named Comeback Athlete of the Year at the ESPYs Wednesday, finally feels free in his body again. “It’s the best, man,” he said, “I’m so happy.” Overcoming a torn left ACL and a...
    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — When a naked man in southwestern Florida recently raised a ruckus outside his house and threatened a deputy with a kitchen knife, the SWAT team swooped in and apprehended him. Soon afterward, Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno stood on the man’s driveway in combat gear for a news conference while the suspect went to the jailhouse that the sheriff likes to call the “Marceno Motel.” “He’s an oxygen-stealer and a scumbag, and I’m glad he’s outta here,” Marceno told reporters. “I’m proud to say that in this county, if you present deadly physical force … we meet you with deadly force every time, and we win. It’s pretty clean, pretty quick.” The Sunshine State has become internationally notorious for the oddball miscreants who populate its police blotters and local news reports — known collectively as Florida Man. There are murders and mayhem, like anyplace else, and then there are the only-in-Florida incidents like the man charged with assault with a deadly weapon for throwing an alligator through a Wendy’s drive-thru window in Palm Beach...
    DEALING with a nightmare neighbours isn't most people's idea of fun. It seems they always find something to complain about, not realising that they're actually the annoying ones. 2The neighbour got her revenge in the endCredit: Getty One woman shared how she got her own back at her "inconsiderate" neighbour for always complaining. She explained on Reddit: "So the mother of all Karen's lives next door and unsurprisingly, she isn't very neighbourly or considerate." It turns out her neighbour constantly smokes in her garden, meaning the Reddit user can't even open her windows or hang laundry on the line outside, "it ends up smelling like an ashtray," she said. Not only that, but "she regularly shouts over the fence that she's unhappy about the state of our landlord's garden but as it's a rental property I can only do so much to fix it."

    Paul TremblaySource: Paul Tremblay Want to hear a scary story? It was 2015. Paul Tremblay, a New England math wiz with a couple crime novels to his name, was experiencing his big breakthrough in horror fiction. His book, "A Head Full of Ghosts," an internet-era spin on the demonic possession genre, arrived in June to rave reviews. It would go on to win the Horror Writers Association's Bram Stoker Award for best novel of the year. Stephen King, the master of horror, tweeted that it "scared the living hell out of me, and I'm pretty hard to scare." A Hollywood adaptation appeared to be right around the corner. Indeed, a month before "A Head Full of Ghosts" was published, production company Focus Features won an auction for the film rights. Robert Downey Jr.'s Team Downey was attached as a producer. Given the novel's reality TV-heavy premise and its tense family drama, it seemed like a natural candidate for adaptation. A no-brainer. It's been in development hell ever since. "I don't know who first coined the following, but I'll credit writer...
    In other words, this fight is actually something Republicans should embrace rather than avoid. What we have seen over the past year or so is a willingness to finally deal with the gender bending in many red-state legislatures and to go on offense to stop the grooming in our schools and broader society. Actually fighting back on issues works wonders. For once, by not agreeing to the premise of a Democrat culture war, we are enjoying the results of a shifting political landscape. It appears that this is the first time in a generation we are actually winning a culture war battle. What the lessons of our failures and successes of the past generation demonstrate is that you cannot retreat, concede, or acquiesce your way out of the culture war. They will take as much as you are willing to cede, and there is no limit. There is, therefore, no neutrality in this intractable war. You either tilt the education system in the direction you want it to be, or it will consume your children with grooming. This is...

    DEAR HARRIETTE: My good friend lost his father about a year ago. I did my best to be there for him when he needed to talk, but now I realize that was not even close to enough. I just lost my father, and I am devastated. Harriette Cole  I know it was a blessing to have him for so long. Many people lose their parents when they are young. Still, my dad was everything for me, and now he’s gone. Every day my heart aches. A couple of friends reach out regularly to check on me. I don’t even know if I was that attentive to this particular friend, who is very important to me. I feel like I want to say something now and apologize for not understanding how much he may have needed me last year. Do you think it would be OK to say something? I understand now. Closing the Loop DEAR CLOSING THE LOOP: You should reach out to your friend. Let him know that your father recently passed away and that his departure brought your...
    Rep. Adam Smith introduced the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023, which allocates funding to address and phase out equipment and products that contains PFAS. Meaningful steps could soon be taken to address the Department of Defense’s “forever chemicals” problem, so long as lawmakers pass the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 (NDAA). Introduced by Rep. Adam Smith of Washington state, the bill allocates resources to address and phase out equipment and products that contain perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). That includes phasing out firefighting foam that contains PFAS, barring the agency from buying certain items that contain PFAS, and monitoring and assessing PFAS blood levels for service members. Even at undetectable levels PFAS pose a threat to humans, and the Department of Defense has been dealing with an excess of PFAS found in water near military bases for quite some time. The NDAA was overwhelmingly passed by the House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday by a vote of 57-1 and will soon go to the House floor. Advocacy organizations like the Environmental Working Group praised the “significant steps” being...
    Artillery shells, awaiting special delivery I’ve never understood Ukraine’s defense of Severodonetsk. I posted this image on May 26... … and wrote:  I circled Sloviansk and Kramatorsk in the map above as a reminder, that even if Russia takes Severodonetsk (probable) and Lysychansk (less probable), any such advance will crash at the gates of [the] heavily fortified cities [of Slovyansk and Kramatorsk], with clear supply lines and artillery support to their west. Honestly, I’ve rarely questioned Ukrainian strategy, but their defense of Severodonetsk, on the wrong side of the Donets River, is truly perplexing. Not only is Lysychansk much easier to defend behind the natural barrier of the river, but it is closer to Ukrainian artillery support. It turns out that Ukraine sent M777 howitzers right up to Lysychansk, and while they’ve wreaked havoc on Ukraine’s rear areas, we have video of at least three of them destroyed this past week (here's two of them). None of them have been geolocated, so maybe they were positioned elsewhere in the Donbas, but the most prevalent long-distance fires in Russian territory fan out...
    BAYERN MUNICH have officially signed Sadio Mane on a three-year contract from Liverpool. The 30-year-old joins from Liverpool in a deal worth £35million after bidding an emotional goodbye to Jurgen Klopp and his former team-mates. 1Sadio Mane has been officially unveiled as a Bayern Munich playerCredit: Reuters In a farewell interview with Liverpool, Mane said: "After when both clubs agreed [the transfer], I sent a long text to say goodbye to everybody, which is normal. "They were sad, as I was, but it is part of life. We just have to accept it." Speaking after making his move official, Mane claimed he had "no doubts" about joining Bayern and is happy to "finally" be at the club. He said: "I'm really happy to finally be at FC Bayern in Munich. We spoke a lot and I felt big interest from this great club right from the beginning, so for me there were no doubts. "It's the right time for this challenge. I want to achieve a lot with this club, in Europe too. :During my time...
    Orphaned and abandoned oil and gas wells are just one cause of rampant methane emissions, which overwhelmingly come from the fossil fuel industry. Majority members of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology released a report on Wednesday ahead of the committee’s meeting on methane emissions in the oil and gas sector explicitly laying the blame on the industry for overwhelming the country—and the planet—with emissions far more dangerous than CO2. The report, titled “Seeing CH4 Clearly: Science-based approaches to methane monitoring in the oil and gas sector,” found that “companies are failing to address super-emitting leaks ... failing to use quantification data to mitigate methane leak emissions ... and deploying innovative LDAR (leak detection and repair) technologies in a limited and inconsistent manner.” But what else is new? According to the committee, not a whole lot when it comes to accountability. Members issued information requests to 10 major oil and gas operators in the Permian Basin, including Chevron, Devon Energy, ExxonMobil, and Occidental Petroleum. The committee praised the companies for their willingness to cooperate and their timely responses, though the information...

Scouted Report: Burrow's ultra tight weave fabric prevents even the tiniest, cutest, dagger-like claws from snagging individual threads and causing a tear. Someone the other day told me, “furniture is like toys for adults.” I thought that was really weird. But then I started thinking about how customizable furniture is and how it’s actually an expression of who you are as a person. I remembered how impressed my girlfriend was when I bought my first throw pillow—all on my own like a big boy! However, buying furniture is a commitment just like getting a pet. And if you have both, well then you’re screwed! …..or so I thought. I bought a couch last year that I was really proud of. I spent some significant time researching and reading the reviews, measuring out the space and even considered if the color would clash with my other furniture. I found the perfect piece and I hit “purchase.” Some weeks later it arrived and I put...
    NFL's first transgender cheerleader has opened up about coming out to her family and battling anxiety and depression as a teen - after she was ostracized from her classmates. Justine Lindsay, 29, made history when she joined the cheerleading squad for the Carolina Panthers - called the TopCats - back in March. At the time, the professional dancer said she was proud to take on the mantle, explaining to Buzzfeed News, 'I think more people need to see this. It's not because I want recognition. It's to shed light on what's going on in this world.' She may be comfortable in her skin now, but growing up wasn't easy for Justine, who revealed in an episode of her podcast that she was 'socially awkward' and struggled to 'fit in' with her peers during childhood. Justine - who hails from the Southeast part of America, but hasn't specified which city or state - admitted that she 'battled a lot within herself' including 'a really bad stage' of anxiety and depression as a teen, while 'trying to figure out who she was as a person'...

    Well, it’s officially Pride month. I would love to run around with my rainbow cape and be blissfully happy, but all I can think about is how awful it has been lately for LGBTQ people–especially those of us who identify as transgender or non-binary. Last year, we saw several anti-LGBTQ laws sweep the nation, but this year hundreds of new hateful laws, mainly in Republican-run states, are being introduced and passed—many of them targeting trans youth and trans athletes. Then, of course, came the wave of “comedians” using gender-affirming surgeries and trans lives as a punching bag for cheap laughs. To refresh your memory, in October 2021, Dave Chappelle’s gross and hateful comments in his Netflix special The Closer caused an uproar within the LGBTQ community and Netflix’s own trans workers staged a walkout. Even after all the backlash, Chappelle has double-downed and continues to make horrendous anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ jokes. In the past few weeks, the ever-ignorant Bill Maher has decided his cisgender heterosexual thoughts on gender-affirming care are necessary to share with the world. News flash, they...

I’m a hipster, I’m vintage, I’m different—say what you will, but I love vinyl. There was, however, a certain missing quality in my curated music set-up until recently. Frankly, it’s sort of lame to have all the coolest records you could find at the flea market or vintage store and not have a decent sound system to play them on. Until a month or so ago, I’d had my bottom shelf $50 Victrola record player for years. You know, the 1930’s looking one with Vinyl, CD, Tape, FM/AM, and Bluetooth capability—just like our grandparents had (OK, minus the Bluetooth.) I’ve actually bought the same one, twice. The first one broke almost immediately and the second one… well, she wasn’t looking like she was going to make it either. I had a lot of problems with my standard, low-tier record player, but I put up with them because I figured it would cost hundreds of dollars to upgrade my...
    They were hardly the embodiment of love’s young dream: he stooped, scruffy in paint-spattered trousers with a thin scarf tied loosely at his neck; she blonde, stylish and though pregnant unmistakably the elfin face that adorned countless magazine covers. Yet for a few heady weeks exactly 20 years ago, Lucian Freud and the model Kate Moss were an inseparable, if unlikely, couple — dancing at Annabel’s, dining a deux in fashionable restaurants and sitting up late into the night as artist and muse. Their collaboration produced one of the most startling portraits of Freud’s long career. His near life-size, full-length study portrayed Moss not as a waif-like supermodel but as a physically imposing, pregnant woman reclining naked on a bed. It also triggered a flood of rumours and speculation about the nature of the relationship between the womanising roué and hedonistic party girl.

    If you’ve been following school board elections here in the United States (and really, whether or not you have a connection to your local school, it's well worth it to tune in), you’ve likely noticed a concerning degree of conservative hysteria taking over otherwise quiet school board meetings. As covered in the discussions on banned books, for example, conservatives are showing up to read “obscene” or “inappropriate” passages from entirely ordinary books in order to stir hysteria. An unfortunate number of adults, including teachers and staff members, have used school board meetings to rally against trans rights, including against policies that allow trans youth to use the correct bathroom and have their name and pronouns honored. Loudoun County School Board, serving Loudoun County, Virginia, has made a lot of national headlines, especially after anti-trans conservatives rallied against trans-inclusive bathroom policies in the public school district, as well as backlash over critical race theory (CRT) and mask policies during COVID-19. Most recently, however, we have some good news coming out of the district, which is that a judge presiding over two recall...
    While the Democratic Party fumbles at whatever strategy it intends to take to combat the imminent demise of federal abortion rights at the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court, it may behoove activists and members of Congress to take matters into their hands with a major tool they already possess: passage, finally, of the Equal Rights Amendment. That’s the case Alyssa Milano argues in her new 13-minute NowThis video: As she explains, 38 states—the constitutional threshold—have now approved the ERA, thanks to the Virginia Legislature’s 2020 ratification. There was an attempt to complete the process in 2020 that won approval in the House but was killed by Mitch McConnell in the Senate. Now, with not just abortion rights but the larger issue of bodily autonomy and civil rights at stake, ERA passage could provide an important first step in fighting back. x x YouTube Video Context—especially the historical context of centuries of a male-dominated medical establishment asserting control over the bodies of people who can become pregnant, often on the pretext that their uteruses made them too “irrational” to be making...
    Joel Embiid was NBA MVP runner-up for the second consecutive season. But the city of Philadelphia created its own way of honoring him. Joel Embiid covets an MVP Award, there’s no doubt about it. He finished second in MVP voting to Nikola Jokic for the second consecutive year and in April, before the award was announced, he already seemed to be steeling himself for disappointment, saying, “If it happens, great. If it doesn’t, I don’t know what I have to do. I’ll feel like they hate me. I feel like the standard for guys in Philly or for me is different than everyone else. After the voting was announced, he appeared to be playing it cool, saying, “I’m not mad. That’s two years in a row I put myself in that position. It didn’t happen. It’s almost like, at this point, it is whatever. Whatever happens, happens.” But it’s not too hard to read between the lines and, honestly, who wouldn’t want to be recognized as the best player in the NBA? Well, he finally has an MVP, even if...

    An overturned and burned out van on the barren road to Popasna. For two solid months, Russia pounded away at the town of Popasna. Again and again, Russian forces crossed the 2 miles from the neighboring town of Pervomaisk, which has been under Russian occupation since 2014. Again and again the forces that survived to reach Popasna were pounded into scrap by artillery stationed west of the town. But gradually, after tremendous losses, Russia wore the defenders in Popasna down. They reduced the buildings in the east of the town to rubble. They reduced the buildings in the south and west of the town to rubble. They reduced the buildings in the north of the town to rubble. Finally, with not a single intact building remaining, Russia took Popasna. Sort of. "The Russians are not just destroying Popasna,” said the head of the regional military administration. “They are removing it from the map.” Russian drone footage showed the last survivors of the town being blasted out of the rubble with grenades. On May 7, Russia celebrated their capture of a town that...
    News that the Disinformation Governance  Board has been paused and its executive director, Nina Jankowicz has stepped down has been celebrated by critics of the barely three weeks-old effort, but Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) believes things should be going a step further. In a Wednesday Fox News appearance on America Reports, the Arkansas senator said Congress “needs” to act to ban anything like the Disinformation Board from ever being put into motion again. I’m glad to know the Orwellian Ministry of Truth is paused for the moment, but important to realize that it’s only paused because the American people found out about it,” Cotton told co-host John Roberts. “The government has no business refereeing disputes engaged in political campaigns or public debates. If you don’t like someone else’s speech, the answer is more speech.” The Republican senator added that Congress must act in the weeks ahead as the Disinformation Board is going through an internal review. “I think the Democrats often believe that disinformation and misinformation are simply facts that reflect poorly on Joe Biden and the Democratic party,” he said. “It’s good they finally came to their senses...
    Missouri Rep. Ann Wagner (R) After months of all-out warfare between the Missouri House and Senate and within the Senate, the state’s GOP-run legislature finally passed a new congressional map on Thursday and sent it to Republican Gov. Mike Parson for his signature, a day before the legislative session was set to end. Had the two chambers not reached an agreement, the redistricting process would have been handed over to the courts, where lawsuits had already been filed due to the ongoing impasse. That looming deadline likely helped bring the long-running feud to an end, along with an ever-present threat by GOP leaders in the Senate to "move the previous question"—a parliamentary maneuver designed to cut off a filibuster, the vehicle that a small band of far-right dissenters had used to thwart earlier attempts to pass a map. The "PQ," as it's known, is often referred to as the "nuclear option" in Missouri politics and is seldom deployed in the Senate—the threat of it is often sufficient. It also, apparently, has never been used by a party against its own...
    MANCHESTER UNITED chiefs reportedly “feel like they are turning a corner” after the club’s FA Youth Cup success - despite the first-team’s misery. The Red Devils have missed out on Champions League qualification and face a huge fight to even finish in the top six after a traumatic campaign. 2Man Utd chiefs the FA Youth Cup success shows their long-term strategy for the club is workingCredit: Getty 2The senior Red Devils are struggling to finish in the top six this termCredit: Getty Interim boss Ralf Rangnick’s arrival before Christmas failed to transform their disappointing season.

    Welcome to Thursday. The GOP continues moving forward with its only policy platform: taking away Americans’ rights. In the case of LGBTQ+ Americans, they are doing this by way of attacking children. Because the only “life” they are “pro” is contained to just the gestation period of fetuses, they are also proceeding with their policy of taking away more than 50% of our population’s rights to bodily autonomy. But don’t worry, after that baby is popped out, they too will have no rights! The good news here, and we use that term loosely, is that people are focusing their political organizing around the more-real-than-ever threat to democracy that these moves define. As for action, the Democratic Party is having a hard time chewing bubble gum and walking at the same time, and this is frustrating, to say the least. While important subpoenas were finally sent out to suspected insurrectionists in office, we are still dropping the ball when it comes to the continuing human rights violations represented by Stephen Miller’s abhorrent immigration policies. This is all happening while millions of Americans continue...
    I try to take pretty good care of my teeth, both because I get cavities pretty easily and because that’s just what you’re supposed to do, people. I brush at least twice a day, floss at least four or five times a week, I use a tongue scraper (gross, I know, but effective and so oddly satisfying) and fluoride-rich mouth wash. But being in my late 30s, a daily coffee drinker, and someone who often eats food, my teeth, while hardly stained or flaxen, are not always as bright white as I’d like. There are a lot of at-home teeth whitening kits that use the same basic approach here, if we’re being frank. That approach is one brushing his or her teeth and then applying a gel to a soft mouthguard-like piece, then gently biting down on that mouthguard after connecting it via cable to your phone’s charging port, which powers on a bank of blue lights that activate that gel formula. Fifteen minutes later and the process is done. What sets Laughland apart? It’s the fact that the gel...
    BOSTON (CBS) – I believe it is a popular misconception around here that “we don’t have a spring.” How many times have you heard someone say, “we just jump right from winter into summah!” I guarantee you will hear it (or perhaps say it yourself) later this week. The sad reality is that spring, in general, kind of stinks here in New England. Put it up against the other seasons and I believe it is either third or fourth in line. Of course, this is totally my opinion, and I am sure there are plenty who would disagree. However, most years spring in the Northeast is cool, cloudy and rainy with a few splashes of sunshine. And, when you finally get a warm and dry day, the pollen spikes and the bugs come out and everyone is miserable all over again. Inevitably, at some point each May, the tides finally turn and the warm winds of summer start to work their way in. Last year it started right around now. From May 9th through May 27th Boston didn’t dip below...
    This is what Republicans DON'T want to call an insurrection. Republicans were irate about the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion striking down Roe v. Wade, and it didn’t take them long to arrive at a talking point that is staggeringly dishonest even by Republican standards: the leak was the real insurrection. Mind you, Republicans are getting what they want here, in the end of abortion rights at a federal level. Mind you, no one knows who leaked the draft and there are very good reasons to suspect it was a conservative. Mind you, the leak of a draft judicial opinion is not by any definition an insurrection. But, always on the search for ways to downplay the violence of their supporters on January 6 and to make themselves the victims of any event, this is where Republicans landed. For some odd reason, they don’t want people talking about the substance of the issue: widespread abortion bans. It’s almost like they realize that’s not actually going to be popular. RELATED STORY: Republican lawmakers and sedition supporters are irate that the end of Roe...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has finally responded to to Elon Musk after he joked in a tweet that she was 'hitting on him' when she was actually slamming him for 'an explosion of hate crimes' following his purchase of Twitter.   'Like I said, ego problems,' the congresswoman tweeted Saturday morning about 20 hours after Musk's initial tweets. She used a shrugging emoji and quote tweeted the exchange between herself and social media platform's new owner.    On Friday Musk accused AOC flirting with him after she raged that his purchase of Twitter had stoked hate crimes.  'Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy,' he wrote, adding a blushing emoji to go along with it. Musk was replying directly to a tweet sent by the Democrat Representative earlier on Friday, which suggested he'd only bought the platform at the behest of Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel.   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 32, responded to Elon Musk nearly a day after he accused the congresswoman of hitting on him on Twitter. She replied: 'Like I said, ego problems' 'Like I said, ego...
    YES, of course there  are rights and wrongs in football. Whether many will be cured by a regulator is open to much doubt.
