    Getty Kyrie Irving #11 of the Brooklyn Nets leads the offense in the second half against the Milwaukee Bucks during game two of the Eastern Conference second round series at Barclays Center on June 07, 2021. After a week of turmoil, Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving revealed he is picking up his player option and returning to the team next season. After a brief flirtation with the Los Angeles Lakers, something that may not even be finished, Irving is coming back to the Nets on a $37 million deal for one year. What happens after that remains to be seen, and in not getting an extension done, Irving has left himself open to a whole year of rumors. For the time being, the attention can now focus on what the Nets will be like going forward with a core of Ben Simmons, Kevin Durant, and Irving. Stephen A. Smith posted a video on Twitter following the Irving opting-in news and gave him a challenge: show up to work.Irving Hit With a Challenge KYRIE opted in!!! pic.twitter.com/89B4kzgJQG —...
    Boris Johnson’s fledgling government has agreed to send £120 million to Rwanda for a trial scheme to house male migrants who illegally cross the English Channel, however, there are concerns that the plan is doomed from the start. Following renewed calls for his resignation altering being fined by the police for violating his own lockdown restrictions and looming local elections, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government is set to announce a swath of policies that will supposedly stem the tide of the growing migrant crisis, which has seen over 5,000 illegals land on British shores since the start of the year. Home Secretary Priti Patel flew to Rwanda in order to reportedly sign the £120 million deal with the East African nation for male boat migrants to be flown and housed there while their asylum claims are processed, according to The Times. Despite the establishment media convention for highlighting pictures of children and women crossing the Channel, the vast majority of illegal boat migrants are in fact young men, with over 90 per cent of the 28,526 migrants who crossed last...
    The Giants can’t tie Brian Daboll’s job security to the success or failure of Daniel Jones. They want Daboll to develop Jones like he helped Bills quarterback Josh Allen blossom in Buffalo, which is a natural expectation in making this hire. Allen’s development is why Daboll was such a hot head coaching candidate in the first place and it’s the main reason the Giants offered him this job. But John Mara, Steve Tisch and new GM Joe Schoen can’t make Daboll’s employment here contingent on whether Jones grows or fizzles out. The best-case scenario is that Daboll fixes Jones and the offense and the Giants win. If Jones can’t cement himself as the Giants’ franchise QB, however, they cannot scapegoat Daboll for it and make him the fourth straight head coach fired within two years. Ownership must give the Schoen-Daboll ticket time that isn’t contingent upon the success of a player they inherited from the previous general manager. Just hearing Mara’s response to this question Monday was slightly unsettling. He was asked if...
    Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn appeared on The Alex Jones Show and claimed that global elites are preparing to let loose a new virus on humanity. “I think we’re gonna see–and I call it a controlled depression–but some type of financial, you know, you know, just a manipulation or a financial collapse,” Flynn told Alex Jones. “So we’re gonna have, I think, some type of controlled depression,” said the retired three-star general. “We’re already at 6% inflation. For us to go to 10%, I don’t think these people have any problem. We’re gonna get there.” Flynn then floated a bonkers conspiracy theory that elites will impose another SARS virus on the world because their alleged plan to implement “Covid tyranny” did not work: We’re gonna see an uptick in other aspects of the Covid. Ok, so we’ve got the various variants. There might even be another form of a SARS that’s imposed on the international system, right? Their little plan with Covid didn’t work because too many people, you know, the world of what I call the digital warriors,...
    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago's new USPS postmaster is defending changes he's made to the city's mail delivery service as he answers questions about ongoing issues with mail.Englewood resident Samon Richardson waited three days to get her daughter's birthday decorations. The celebration was yesterday."They said they delivered, but I waited all day and it didn't come," she said.Chicago's postmaster Eddie Morgan Jr. was asked to testify in a Friday congressional hearing on USPS. He told the subcommittee members about programs and plans to improve service, and put a lot of emphasis on staff not showing up to work for reasons including violence in the city.But some members pushed back on blaming violence for mail delays.

    (CNN)While the legacy of his kneeling protest against police brutality and racial injustice continues to underscore sporting events around the world, Colin Kaepernick has not been involved in an NFL game in over five years -- and he hasn't given up on playing again.In a rare interview ahead of the release of his upcoming Netflix biopic series, "Colin in Black and White," Kaepernick detailed the intensive training regime he still undergoes."I am still up at 5 a.m. training five, six days a week making sure I'm prepared to take a team to a Super Bowl again," Kaepernick, who became a free agent in 2017, told Ebony magazine."That's not something I will ever let go of, regardless of the actions of 32 teams and their partners to deny me employment. The same way I was persistent in high school is the same way I'm gonna be persistent here."The 31-year-old's commitment to returning to the NFL marks a continuation of his message from November last year, wherein Kaepernick tweeted a video of himself training alongside former San Francisco 49ers teammate Eric Reid,...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Kids sat in the cafeteria at Pittsburgh Langley this summer, relishing the last few days of camp and enjoying lunch with their friends. For some, a sandwich is more than just lunch. “Sometimes it might be the only meal that students might actually get during the day or the evening,” said Tiffany Fitzpatrick.

But they had to keep the food coming, knowing how important each meal is to the kids. “There were parents that reached out to me and said, ‘I can’t get out of my house to get the grab-and-go meals.

    CHICAGO -- Chicago's O'Hare Airport is adding more options for travelers searching for food, travel supplies or a quiet place to work - all set up to allow for "touchless" 24/7 purchases.The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the City Council's Aviation Committee approved the new concessions agreements on Thursday.Aviation Commissioner Jamie Rhee said the upgraded vending machines offer an alternative to sit-down dining that some travelers will not be comfortable using as the coronavirus pandemic continues. The options include machines offering fresh popcorn, healthier food items and essentials for people traveling with young children."We needed to have more diversification in the offerings that we had," Rhee said during Thursday's meeting. "Some folks are gonna still want that sit-down restaurant. That's what they're gonna stick to. Others are not as comfortable and may love to use some of these alternatives. I don't think it's ever gonna be one-size-fits-all."Latino aldermen voted against the plan, though, protesting the low number of Hispanic-owned firms among the selected companies.Rhee said both Latino-owned firms that applied were selected and said she also was frustrated by that number.The...
    Radio host and former Trump administration official Seb Gorka became suspicious of a man who called into his radio show on Monday. It turns out he had reason to be. The caller said he was “frustrated” with Gorka’s treatment of Virginia Republican gubernatorial nominee Glenn Youngkin, and went on to make comments that perhaps sounded a bit too polished to the radio host. “I don’t know if you saw today, but he rolled out a new policy plan called his Day One Game Plan,” said the caller, who identified himself as Josh. “He wants to defend, and not defund, police. He wants to invest in our schools, restore excellence in education, cut cost of living.” He then accused Gorka of trying to take down Youngkin. “Do you work for the campaign, Josh?” asked Gorka. “If this is how you treat your friends…” the caller replied before Gorka interrupted. “Do you work for the campaign?” he asked again. “Don’t avoid my question. Do you work for Glenn Youngkin?” “I don’t, I don’t,” he responded. “Yes, I bet you don’t. Goodbye, you...

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots traded a second-round pick to Atlanta in 2019 to acquire wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. It didn’t work out. Sanu caught just 26 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown in eight games with New England, and he made one catch for 11 yards in the Patriots’ lone playoff game that year. Sanu was under contract for 2020, but the Patriots released him prior to the start of the season.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Our drought isn’t just causing extremely dry conditions. We’re barely getting cloud coverage some days, and that’s led to long hours under the brightest star in the sky. So how should we protect our eyes from the sun? And which type of sunglasses work best? WCCO spoke with Dr. Susie Hemann, an optometrist with Downtown Eyes in Minneapolis. READ MORE: Where Exactly Is Up North In Minnesota? “The best way to protect your eyes is to wear 100% UV sunglasses. Those are gonna have UVA and UV blocking,” Hemann said. She also adds that people should look for the “100% UV” sticker on lenses. But is it safe to assume all sunglasses have UV protection? “In general, if you’re getting it from a pretty reliable store, and especially if you’re getting it from an eye clinic, they’re all gonna have that. If you get them in promotional deal or something like that, I would have a little more caution there,” Hemann said. Another sticker often seen on lenses will verify the sunglasses are polarized.

    The death toll from the condo that collapsed in Surfside, Fla. two weeks ago rose to 60 on Thursday, as authorities transitioned from a search and rescue effort to a recovery mission. Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava (D) announced the new death toll at a news conference Thursday morning, which rose from 54 people the night before. Thirty-five of the victims have been identified. She said 200 people have been accounted for and 80 individuals remain “potentially unaccounted for.” The new death toll comes hours after authorities shifted to a recovery mission from a search and rescue effort. Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett said individuals “closest to the rescue effort” determined that “the possibility of someone still alive is near zero,” which prompted the change. The transition went into effect at midnight. “The work continues with all speed and urgency. All task forces are being deployed from across the country and the world. We are working around the clock to recover victims and to bring closure to the families as fast as we possibly can,” Cava said on Thursday. She said...

    Instagram Morgan Willett and boyfriend Johnny Bananas Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio is perhaps the most notorious star of “The Challenge,” having appeared on 20 seasons of the show and winning seven of them. His girlfriend Morgan Willett, however, only appeared on the competition show for a few brief episodes before her elimination and for fans wondering if we’ll see the “Big Brother” star back on with or without Bananas, it’s looking pretty unlikely. Morgan appeared on “The Challenge: War of the Worlds,” which filmed in the fall of 2018, where she met and was partnered with Johnny Bananas. However, because of the massive target on his back, the two were eliminated in the third episode and went on a short vacation together afterward. The two began dating sometime after the show filmed but they didn’t go public with their relationship for a while, until a red carpet appearance in October 2019. However, Bananas revealed in a “Challenge Mania” podcast appearance that he told Morgan early on that their relationship likely wouldn’t work if she appeared on more seasons of...
    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich warned Wednesday that measures from President Joe Biden’s most recent trillion-dollar proposal won’t motivate people to work. “You’re gonna find a significant number of people who say ‘that’s fine, I’m just not gonna work,’ and I think creating a dependency culture is dangerous,” Gingrich said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” Biden is set to announce “The American Families Plan” in his joint session address on Wednesday, marking his third major spending proposal since taking office. (RELATED: ‘This Isn’t Monopoly Money’: Ron Johnson Calls Out Unnecessary Spending In Biden’s Trillion-Dollar Packages) WATCH: Senior administration officials say the president’s most recent proposal will cost around $1.8 trillion and follows his $2.25 trillion “American Jobs Plan” and $1.9 trillion “American Rescue Plan.” The plan will mostly be fueled by raising taxes on America’s most affluent and closing various loopholes. The proposal includes “universal, quality-preschool to all three- and four- year-olds” and “two years of free community college,” according to a White House fact sheet. The plan would also prolong essential tax cuts from Biden’s coronavirus package, which aided...
    Fox News host Tucker Carlson highlighted the work of Substack author Michael Tracey who observed that following Derek Chauvin's conviction of the murder of George Floyd, many on the Left--including businesses--parroted the line the "more work needs to be done." The "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host then play a montage of figures like President Biden, Vice President Harris, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Don Lemon offer that opinion. CARLSON: Everyone reading the bumper sticker. The best is the "comedians" reading state-approved propaganda. So many people have been so gravely diminished by the past few years. But there’s more, more where that came from. Tracey then went and found a lot of other people reading from exactly the same script and it's an incredibly long list. And if you want to understand the axis between politicians and big business and fake state-approved comedians—all of them, everybody with power—all acting as one in unison against you and your interests.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested Monday that abolishing the Senate filibuster would force senators to “work together.” “I have come to believe that the filibuster is an archaic remnant of a past time,” Clinton, who represented New York in the Senate from 2001 to 2009, told Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haas during a teleconferenced discussion on the issue. WATCH: “We have to show people that government can work,” she continued. “We may not always agree on, you know, what it is the right solution might be, but we have to demonstrate that elections actually produce consequences and people, like it or not, should see what the results are.” Clinton called the filibuster, which Democrats often used successfully to thwart former President Donald Trump’s legislative initiatives, a “symbol of minority obstructionism as opposed to a cooling saucer parliamentary move to get people to work together.” Arguing that “real debate” is “all gone” in the chamber, Clinton accused former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of focusing on tax cuts and judicial confirmations and leaving aside the...
    CLEVELAND (AP) — Michael Stanley, a Cleveland-based rocker who with his namesake band reached the Top 40 in the 1980s with the hits “He Can’t Love You” and “My Town,” and went on to a long career as a radio disc jockey, has died. He was 72. Stanley died Thursday after a seven-month battle with lung cancer, his family said in a statement. The rock radio station WNCX in Cleveland, where he worked for 30 years, posted a message from Stanley himself, saying: “Hey gang… Well, if you’re reading this then I am off to catch up with that big club tour in the sky. But before the bus pulls out I wanted to thank all of you for being part of my musical journey, both on the stage, on record, and behind the microphone here at WNCX.” Accompanied by his signature, Stanley’s send-off continued: “Somebody once said that if you love your job then it’s not really work. And if that’s true (and I definitely think it is) then I have been happily out of work for over fifty...

    Rep. Jim Jordan told Fox News on Sunday that he's not sure Republicans in Congress will be able to work with Democrats, saying that the opposing party in Congress is too "radically left" to negotiate with on major issues.  Jordan, R-Ohio, made the comments in an interview with Fox News ahead of his address to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday.

In a letter obtained by Axios and dated Tuesday, the moderate Blue Dog Coalition reiterated the 46th commander-in-chief’s argument that now is the time for bipartisanship. “Congress must pursue bipartisan policies that can be implemented, while prioritizing those that pertain to the pandemic response and the economic recovery,” the letter read. “The American people have sent a clear message: Democrats and Republicans must govern together responsibly,” it continued, arguing in favor of what Biden has described as his mandate. “Pursuing partisan legislation that cannot make it to your desk for your signature will not only hinder the nation’s recovery, it will further feed into the divides in our country.”...

    The Hill’s Editor at large Steve Clemons interviews AmerisourceBergen Chairman, President and CEO Steven Collis on what Americans should think about supply chains and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Read excerpts from the interview below. STEVE CLEMONS: Hello and welcome to a special edition of the Coronavirus Report. Joining me today is Steve Collis, chairman, president and CEO of AmerisourceBergen, a pharmaceutical distributor and a key link in the health care supply chain, a Fortune 10 company. Can you give me the dashboard as you see it of the COVID-19 crisis, as its unfolding and our response to it, needs to include from a distributor like you? STEVE COLLIS: I think when we get into vaccines, Steve, it's somewhat complicated because it is an unusual pharmaceutical channel. There's so many different points of access and where it gets stored or treated. Vaccines get treated from physician’s offices to retail pharmacies. So retail pharmacy of course is a channel, health systems where the three wholesalers are very high, high, high proximity and high concentration. Once you get out of that, it becomes much more...
    Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves pushed back against the idea of a new national coronavirus lockdown, while urging residents to follow health precautions and take the virus seriously. “The people of Mississippi can’t just go home, shut down their small business, shut down their restaurants, shut down their gyms … and just think that you can come back six weeks from now, flip a switch and everything’s gonna be fine,” he said during an afternoon news conference on Thursday. “That’s not the way the economy works.” The remark came in response to a recent interview in which one of President-elect Joe Biden’s COVID-19 advisers floated the idea of a four- to six-week nationwide lockdown in an effort to fight the virus’ spread in the weeks leading up to the anticipated release of a new vaccine. “The fact is, we’re gonna try to work with whomever the president is, but we’re not gonna participate in a nationwide lockdown,” Reeves said, calling the notion of a new lockdown “totally and completely beyond reasonableness.” He cited the steep economic toll that businesses would face under...

    Joe Scarborough got a genuinely good laugh at a new Trump Campaign ad recently released that clearly targets the crucial suburban women vote that President Donald Trump sorely needs to win reelection. The new spot features a mask-wearing woman considering her options while voting, thinking aloud about her options. The policies presented for former Vice President Joe Biden are, predictably, not that ideal for this particular voter. “What about the Democrats?” she thinks aloud. “Repeal the tax cuts that will cost me over $1,000. I can’t afford that. Higher taxes on employers, but my husband is looking for work.” The producers of Morning Joe ran the ad for hosts and viewers alike twice, to make sure everyone was clear on the “my husband is looking for work” line, which directly echos comments made by President Trump on the campaign trail. Scarborough reacted with a rather serious mien, but as the messaging’s absurdity hit him, he burst out in a genuine laughter that one rarely sees on morning television. “Wow,” he opened before addressing contributor Kasie Hunt. “My husband’s looking for work....

The 16-year-old boy was shot and killed while walking home from a shift at a West Oak Lane Burger King. “He’d be one where during class you know would crack a joke to kind of lighten the mood a little bit. Well, who’s going to do that now? When we get back in the building I mean there’s gonna be a chair that is supposed to be filled that’s not filled,” teacher Sean Snyder said. “He was just a lovable person and I feel like his life was taken too soon,” said Deborah Sayyaad, Mekhi’s aunt. Sayyaad was so close to him, Mekhi called...
    Republican Lt. Gov. Jon Husted of Ohio learned quickly on Monday that President Donald Trump’s voters aren’t ready for even mildly encouraging statements about wearing masks to stop the spread of COVID-19. He appeared ahead of the president at a Trump rally in Ohio, and he tried to promote a series of Trump-branded masks. To the attendees’ credit, his speech was pretty condescending. Husted seemed to think he could convince them to wear face masks — which have become demonized on the right — just because they were branded with Trump logos. But Husted was at least trying to encourage healthy behavior among his voters, which Trump has repeatedly declined to do. Experts agree masks are one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of the respiratory virus, and the fact that this advice has become anathema to large swaths of the country — primarily supporters of the president — is extremely dangerous on its own terms and disturbing for what it says about our politics. “If you go into a grocery store where you’ve got to wear...
    Two of President Donald Trump’s supporters in Minnesota agreed Friday that he has a bigger silent majority backing him this year than he did in 2016. Breitbart News asked one Trump rally attendee in Bemidji, Minnesota, if he believed there was a possibility the state might flip from blue to red in November. “Absolutely. I think 2016 woke up the left side. They realize that they have their work cut out for them, and I think that the people that were working weren’t able to get off work,” the man, identified as Mitch, said. “For instance, one year, election season, I had to work out in Duluth, and I couldn’t get off early enough to go vote. So there went my voice,” he explained: So yeah, I think this year, I think there’s a very good chance. I think there’s a 90 percent plus probability that it’s gonna go red. I talk to a lot of conservatives and a lot of you know, left side, and quite frankly a lot of them are gonna vote Trump because of the way the...

Studios and producers are coming up with creative solutions to get your favorite shows and movies back in business.It's been a tough six months. Since the pandemic began, 77% of people in the entertainment business has lost 100% of their income. People on the tech side of film and animation and voiceover work were able to continue."I'm one of the fortunate few to keep working with the home studio and that has become the new normal where we are responsible entirely for not just the content but the production of it as well so it was a learning curve," said actor Rick Pasqualone.The learning curve extends to auditions as well. Actors are needing to get creative, and self-taping auditions, which had become common even before it became a necessity."Just the way the business was going, things have to be turned around more quickly and people were saying, 'it is pretty simple these days with a smart phone and a ring light,' you...

    The Giants unveiled their first unofficial depth chart Monday — and it looked remarkably similar to how the offenses and defenses lined up during training camp. If head coach Joe Judge is planning any surprises, they did not show up on this initial list. The depth chart had Nick Gates as the starting center (Spencer Pulley is the backup), Devante Downs as a starting inside linebacker, Corey Ballentine as a starting outside cornerback, Oshane Ximines as a starting outside linebacker, Julian Love as the starting free safety, rookie Andrew Thomas at left tackle and Cam Fleming at right tackle. Asked if he knows who won the center job but is not yet ready to make the announcement, Judge said, “We’re still gonna work on deciding that, we’re gonna let another day go through right here and some things we’re gonna work on [Monday night].’’ WR Golden Tate, who appeared to tweak his hamstring and missed several days last week, did not participate in a practice that was mostly about conditioning, designed, Judge said, to “knock the rust off them’’...
    ENGLEWOOD — A local initiative to boost the 63rd Street corridor is moving forward despite losing out on millions in foundation funding, and organizers say they are close to launching one part of the ambitious project. Go Green On Racine is a multi-million-dollar collaboration between local groups to bring environmentally sustainable development to the area around 63rd Street and Racine Avenue. The project seeks to launch a fresh market cooperative, a mixed-use development and a training center that would repurpose the closed Woods Academy. Inner-city Muslim Action Network, E.G. Woode, Residents Association of Greater Englewood (R.A.G.E.) and Teamwork Englewood are working on the project.

But neighbors, supporters and public officials said they are pushing forward and are just weeks away from opening the Healthy Marketplace, 1211 W. 63rd St., which is the first phase of the project. Mayor Lori Lightfoot approved a $1.75 million grant for...
