    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – It seems like every time you drive by your service station, the price of gas has increased. AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins says you can save on fuel by reducing your speed on the highway, leaving for work earlier when there is less congestion and shopping around as prices vary from one area to the next. READ MORE: Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday Starts This WeekendWhether you have a Toyota Prius or a Cadillac Escalade, it is advisable not to wait until your gas tank is empty. Filling up when you have reached the halfway mark will hurt your wallet less. Some vehicles require you to only use premium gas, if that is the case, then you will really have to watch how fast you are driving. When you are on the highway, stick to the speed limit and avoid aggressive driving. Pressing on that gas pedal will only burn gas at a faster rate. Remember to set your vehicle, if equipped, to monitor your miles per gallon and reset at each fill-up. Challenge yourself to save...

    James Gilbert/Getty Images Since the firing of former Jacksonville Jaguars coach Urban Meyer last December, owner Shad Khan has been relatively quiet on the matter. That all changed Tuesday with Khan unloading on Meyer in an interview with USA TODAY Sports, making it clear that the firing wasn’t about wins or losses, but more about a lack of trust and respect between the parties. “When you lose the respect, the trust, and an issue of truthfulness, how can you work with someone like that?” Khan said to the media outlet. “It’s not possible.” Khan relieved Meyer of his duties only 13 games into the 2021 season, boasting an abysmal 2-11 record. The real horrors came before and after the game, however, as the firing followed multiple controversies including an allegation from former Jags kicker Josh Lambo, claiming Meyer kicked and berated him during pregame warmups. The coach was also reported for berating coaches and staff members in the Jaguars organization.

    This week on The Brief, hosts Markos Moulitsas and Kerry Eleveld talked all things messaging and how Democrats can shape an effective narrative that will pay dividends come November. Guest Jenifer Fernandez-Ancona, vice president of Way to Win, joined the show to talk about the group’s work shaping progressive messaging and what she’s learned about how Democrats can effectively combat the GOP’s aggressive (and often much more successful) messaging. Moulitsas and Eleveld opened the show with conversation about the importance of the upcoming midterm elections, and Moulitsas in particular highlighted the importance of making these elections not only a referendum on Biden, but also one on Trump and the GOP as well. As Eleveld put it: [There’s] this idea that you have to have a hero and a villain in every story. If Democrats are just talking about their accomplishments and they’re trying to sell themselves solely on their accomplishments, there’s no hero or villain in that story. It’s just, ‘Do you like what Democrats have done?’ versus ‘Do you like what Democrats are doing and would you like it if Republicans were in...
    urbazon | E+ | Getty Images When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, many Americans felt the financial shock of a sudden drop in income. If the same kind of event were to happen today, many people would still struggle financially, according to a poll conducted by the Bipartisan Policy Center, Funding Our Future coalition and Morning Consult. What's more, the stopgaps provided by the government — namely stimulus checks and monthly child tax credit payments — are no longer available to help curb financial distress. But one solution — emergency savings plans provided through employers — could help, according to the report.How Americans are strugglingThe survey found 42% of employed Americans feel very or somewhat financially insecure. Moreover, 24% have zero savings set aside for an emergency expense. Notably, the poll does not factor in the 40% of adults who are not employed. If it did, the emergency savings shortfall would likely be even more pronounced. One-third of working adults say they would be very or somewhat uncomfortable with their ability to pay a $400 emergency expense. Moreover, 8% indicated they...
    It is nearly impossible to not feel like the future is now when you think about all of the next-level gadgets on the market, like smart glasses for example. Having second screens or cameras built right into an accessory you already wear every day feels like one of the inventions on The Jetsons next to a robot maid or an electronic arm that would brush your teeth and comb your hair. However, much like other inventions in The Jetsons, that far-off future is now well within reach. Smart glasses have officially become everyday consumer products that can offer a variety of unique features. Many different smart glasses provide specific features that are built for communication and entertainment, while others offer reliable wearable tech for a number of different industries including construction and engineering. Of course, some smart glasses just allow you to hear your favorite podcast and get notifications while you're on the go like your favorite smartwatch. The incredible diversity within the market makes it all the more interesting to find the options that make sense for every...
    Wayne Pankratz, the executive director of operations for American Franchise Capital, which owns 50 Applebee's franchises in the Midwest, called on the company to lower wages for workers already hit hard by soaring gas prices and inflation An Applebee's executive caused an uproar when he allegedly told company officials in a leaked email that skyrocketing gas prices and inflation could be used to lower wages for workers already living paycheck to paycheck.  In a copy of the internal email posted on Reddit on Wednesday, Wayne Pankratz, the executive director of operations for American Franchise Capital, which owns 50 Applebee's in the Midwest, allegedly told managers of the fast food chain  that employees and applicants are economically hurting, which he saw as an 'advantage.' 'Most of our employee base and potential employee base live paycheck to paycheck,' the email read. 'Any increase in gas prices cuts into their disposable income.' This week, the average price of a gallon of regular gas in Midwest states hovered near $4, while Los Angeles hit a record $6.011, according to the AAA Gas Price Index. Pankratz allegedly...
    Unvaccinated Nets guard Kyrie Irving made a pair of appearances at Brooklyn's Barclays Center over the weekend, not because New York City lifted its injection mandate for private sector employees, but rather because the NBA star wasn't working.  While New York Mayor Eric Adams has eased the city's mandates, allowing fans to attend games without presenting proof of vaccination, the mandate for local workers remains in place. And as such, the 29-year-old former top-overall draft pick will continue to be sidelined for home games.  The unmasked Irving was at Barclays Center on Saturday to watch his alma mater, Duke, lose the ACC Tournament title game to Virginia Tech before returning on Sunday to see his Nets beat the crosstown rival Knicks thanks to 53 points from Brooklyn star Kevin Durant. Afterwards, Durant directed a message to Adams, an avowed Nets fan, by accusing the Mayor of using the mandate to gain notoriety.

    Nobody in their right mind really wants to wear a mask. I know I don't.  Don't get me wrong, I don't feel suffocated or dehumanised or particularly put-upon having to. I often forget I've got one on. It's just a bit of a faff and I'd rather not. But simple etiquette aside, in many places we have to wear them by law or face a fine. And in many others we're simply asked to, so of course I do. Most of us do. Even after mask mandates were dropped in July last year (they were reintroduced in December, when Omicron hit), more than half of Britons still wore them in many situations, out of choice. Was it necessary? Well, in January 2021, at the peak of our second wave, one in 50 people had Covid. Numbers fell and rose again, and by October it was one in 50 again, across the whole of England. Numbers were higher in certain hotspots. It's now one in 25 in England, which is a startling figure. The chances of coming into close contact with...
    A knife pulled from the icy landscape of Norway features a handle that looks like a 13th century royal – but archaeologists cannot determine if it is a king or queen. Made from an animal bone, the object shows a figure with a crown on their head and a peregrine falcon perched on their arm. Researchers with Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research say the artifact depicts the earliest Scandinavian representation of the aristocratic activity of falconry. The knife was uncovered by archaeologists working at the medieval town of Oslo, who found the object just right outside one of their tents.

    Prince Harry today claimed that people around the world 'stuck in jobs that don't bring them joy' should quit to put their mental health and happiness first. The Duke of Sussex said that 'with self-awareness comes the need for change' and that the many job resignations during the pandemic 'aren't all bad'. Harry added that the world was at the 'beginning of the mental health awakening' and people putting happiness before their job was 'something to be celebrated'. He was speaking in an interview with US business magazine Fast Company about his role as 'chief impact officer' with California-based mental health start-up BetterUp. And Harry's comments will be seen as a reference to how he and wife Meghan Markle stepped down as senior royals last year and left Britain for North America.

    FORMIDABLE Labour MP Stella Creasy has been reprimanded for bringing her three-month-old baby son in a sling to Parliament. In an email from some pen-pusher she has been reminded of Paragraph 42 of the Rules of Behaviour, which states: “You should not take your seat in the Chamber when accompanied by a child.” 5There are many layers to the Stella Creasy situation.

    Over the last 30 years, heat has caused more deaths than hurricanes, tornadoes and extreme cold combined. And if climate and demographic trends stay the same, by 2050, more than 59,000 people could die every year from heat, according to a new report from the Atlantic Council.  "Heat is the Grim Reaper that no one can see," said Kathy Baughman McLeod, senior vice president and director at the council's Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center. As soon as 2030, experts say, excess heat could kill more than 8,500 people per year. Extreme heat killed nearly 2,000 people in the U.S. in 2018. If greenhouse gas emissions go unchecked, more than 130 million people in the U.S. every year will experience at least 100 days of heat exceeding 90 degrees Fahrenheit by 2050.  Heat is pervasive and expensive, Baughman McLeod said. High temperatures trigger heat stroke and exacerbate pre-existing conditions such as heart and lung disease. Common medications, including antihistamines and antidepressants, make people more vulnerable to heat stress.  And the socioeconomic ramifications of extreme heat are numerous and can compound...
    Afghanistan's biggest female pop star has escaped on a US flight out of Kabul as fears grow that a captured female governor will be executed by the Taliban.  Aryana Sayeed, a singer and judge on the Afghan version of The Voice, was one of those fortunate to escape the country on a US cargo jet on Wednesday.  'I am well and alive and after a couple of unforgettable nights, I have reached Doha, Qatar and am awaiting my eventual flight back home to Istanbul,' the 36-year-old told her 1.3 million Instagram followers.  Ms Sayeed later posted an update showing that she had flown onward to Turkey.  She said: 'After I get home and my mind and emotions return back to normal from a world of disbelief and shock, I have many stories to share with you.'  But other prominent women like Salima Mazari, one of the country's first female governors, have already been rounded up and arrested.  Ms Mazari was an outspoken critic of the Taliban during her time as governor of the Hazara district and there are fears that...
    A hi-tech scan that takes just five seconds to perform can tell if chemotherapy is working in patients with breast cancer. The scan, which involves waving a hand-held probe resembling a shower head over the tumour site, can detect tiny changes that indicate whether it is responding to chemo drugs after just one round of treatment. The breakthrough means women showing no early signs of improvement can be switched to other drugs or treatments, sparing them from the unnecessary and toxic side-effects of chemotherapy. Currently, most patients undergoing chemo have to endure several weeks or months of treatment — often with debilitating side-effects, such as nausea, hair loss and extreme fatigue — before they find out whether their tumour has shrunk. The scan, which involves waving a hand-held probe resembling a shower head over the tumour site, can detect tiny changes that indicate whether it is responding to chemo drugs after just one round of treatment The new technique could potentially slash that time to a matter of hours, allowing doctors to try other chemotherapy combinations or carry out...
    I KNOW this is a controversial view but I think people work more effectively and get more done when in the office. But equally, I am not surprised that fewer than one in five workers had returned to their desks by the end of last month. 6I think people work more effectively and get more done when in the officeCredit: Alamy In many ways, working from home is a dream come true for lots of people. In fact, at the start of lockdown we couldn’t believe our luck: No commute, all-day leisurewear and proximity to the fridge. What is not to like? And of course, people are reluctant to submit to the misery and expense of public transport or incessant traffic jams. Obviously, that could be moderated if people did not all start and end the working day at the same time. But it seems we, as a nation, are not quite able to make that leap towards flexible working yet. And in the meantime, the prospect of going to the office is bleak for many. The average working day...
    American Express distributed handouts to its employees detailing microaggressions to avoid, ways to understand one’s privilege and tips on how to “be an ally,” reveal whistleblower documents posted Wednesday and obtained by journalist Christopher Rufo. One of the materials tells the credit card company’s employees to “identify the privileges and advantages” they have before standing up for others. The employees were also advised not to speak over their black and African-American co-workers and refrain from giving “unsolicited advice” or making assumptions when listening to others’ stories. White employees are told not to utter common phrases such as “I don’t see color,” “we are all human beings,” and “everyone can succeed in this society if they work hard enough,” or they will be considered “microaggressors” against their black colleagues. pic.twitter.com/WcOT6wYJsm — Christopher F.

    (CNN)President Joe Biden is using words not heard in Washington for many a long year, like "trust," "consensus" and "compromise." He's even convinced that "friends" on the other side of the nation's deep political chasm will keep their word.The unusual outbreak of civility heralded by a bipartisan infrastructure deal may well turn out to be a rare exception to the rule of raging partisan warfare, given the intricate task that lies ahead in getting it into law. But for now, the agreement is offering what may be a temporary respite from the normally acerbic way of doing business between the White House and Capitol Hill. And it is offering new insights into how Biden views his presidency and his lonely belief that politically estranged Americans can come together.The President can at least now look those who voted for him in the eye and tell them that so far he has delivered on a promise to suck the venom from politics and create space for lawmakers of goodwill to work.This spirit of compromise was boosted on Thursday when bipartisan negotiators announced...

    (CNN)There's no doubt the Covid-19 pandemic was tough. It turned our world upside down. It disrupted our routines, forced us to stay home, made us confront the fragility of life and pushed us well beyond the limits of our comfort zone. But amid our collective fear and suffering, there were some silver linings. We learned to be kind and care for our neighbor, we slowed down, parents spent more time with their kids -- in person and on Zoom. We focused more on our physical and mental health and learned to appreciate the smallest things we used to take for granted. We proved to ourselves how resilient we are, and we treated each other with compassion.As the United States rushes to get "back to normal," there are some lessons learned from our time under lockdown that we should keep, and even build upon, to create a new normal -- better than the one before.

    Republicans are mad that people are refusing to take low-paying jobs — just not enough to raise the minimum wage. Republican lawmakers are blaming disappointing jobs numbers on unemployment benefits they claim incentivize employees to avoid returning to work — all while ignoring pleas for a higher minimum wage that might solve the supposed problem. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated on Friday that employers added 266,000 jobs in April — significantly less growth than the previous month — with the unemployment rate remaining almost unchanged at 6.1%. Though administration officials say there is no evidence of a connection, Republican lawmakers were quick to blame this slowdown on the emergency unemployment benefits that were passed as part of President Joe Biden's COVID relief package, the American Rescue Plan. Because the federal government is giving jobless Americans an extra $300 a week, they argued, it must mean people are finding unemployment more lucrative than the jobs available to them. "People don't want to go back to work. We've sent them so...

    Street art has become a mainstream cultural phenomenon, thanks to artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Banksy and Kaws. But outdoor murals are vulnerable to vandals, who mar their beauty with unwanted graffiti. A group of chemists in Italy have developed a method to wipe away graffiti while keeping the art underneath intact. The process involves loading nontoxic cleaners onto a thin sheet of polymers known as hydrogels and applying it to a surface of a vandalized piece of street art. The hydrogel releases the cleaning agents slowly to just the top layer, only a few microns deep, allowing the overpainting to be removed quickly without damaging the work. Cleaning graffiti off street art is difficult because the chemical composition of both is so similar its nearly impossible for a solvent to erase one without the other 'For decades, we have focused on cleaning or restoring classical artworks that used paints designed to last centuries,' said Piero Baglioni, a chemist at the University of Florence who worked on the project. 'In contrast, modern art and street art, as well...
