    Getty UFC President Dana White attends the press conference after the UFC Fight Night event. UFC president Dana White has made it clear that he will not be friends with boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya ever again. Former boxing world champion De La Hoya shared a fierce rivalry with White. Although he was initially friends with White during the early days of promoting the UFC, things turned sour quickly once De La Hoya became a boxing promoter and eventually even tried his hand at mixed martial arts. During a fan Q&A with GQ Sports, White responded to a question asking if he would partner with De La Hoya following an apology. “I feel like De La Hoya’s apology was sincere, but there’s no way that he and I can ever be friends again,” White said (ht MMA Fighting). “He and I were actually friends. I used to go to his fights. I used to watch his fights. I used to promote his fights. “That guy did way too much damage for us to ever be friends again....
    A tech company CEO has been mocked online for posting a photo of himself in tears after laying off some of his employees - with the ridicule only increasing after it emerged that only two staff members were let go.

    (CNN)It's been 1,630 days since Linda Beigel Schulman spoke to her son Scott Beigel, a geography teacher killed in the 2018 high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, as he ushered students to safety in his classroom. "I will never get over it. I will never get past it," she said Monday, testifying in the gunman's death penalty trial in a Broward County courtroom. "My life will never, ever be the same."

    Just imagine, if you can, a 105-mile long, pencil-thin horizontal skyscraper — a sidescraper — that cuts through high mountains and arid desert. It will house a city of nine million people. There will be no cars or streets but flying taxis: oh and a giant fake moon, animatronic dinosaurs and an army of robots to harvest food, cook and clean for the pampered population. And carbon emissions will be zero. As these fantastical concept pictures show, there would be nothing like the city of Neom anywhere on the planet. Which is no surprise. The sci-fi architecture — often reminiscent of futuristic 1982 film Blade Runner — is indeed influenced by the masters of Hollywood special effects. The 105-mile long monolith will boast a stadium up a mountain, a ski resort of a Jurassic Island  Throughout history, megalomaniac dreamers have sought to rival the ambition of Egyptian pharoahs and build their own equivalent of the great pyramids with varying degrees of success.

    (CNN) — We’re about to have an entirely new perspective on the universe. The James Webb Space Telescope will release its first high-resolution color images on July 12.

    This is an adaptation of Matt Walsh's book, 'What Is a Woman?: One Man's Journey to Answer the Question of a Generation,' which is being released June 14 from Daily Wire Books  As I sat across from Scott Newgent in a beautiful room in New York with the warm sun showering in, I thought she looked almost like a middle-aged man: stubbled cheeks, thinning hair, a portly body shape.  I started off with the basics. 'What led up to your decision to transition?' I asked. She began with a sigh. 'Well, it's a question I get a lot.' She told me about how she is a lesbian and was deeply in love with a conservative Catholic girl. The girl knew she wasn't a lesbian and told Newgent she acted like a man in a woman's body. 'So I thought about it for a long time,' Newgent said. 'And it came to me that if I replaced my life, if I replaced my chromosomes from female to male, my life would have been completely different. I would have been the ultimate...

    From Bitcoin to Ethereum, cryptocurrencies are nursing large losses due to a massive market meltdown in the broader crypto market last week. The meltdown was triggered by the crash of TerraUSD, one of the world's largest 'stablecoins', so-called as it's supposed to trade one-to-one with the US dollar.  After TerraUSD 'de-pegged' from the dollar, trading as low as 23 cents amid panicked selling, it caused a broader meltdown that sent cryptocurrency values plummeting. Bitcoin – the largest cryptocurrency – fell to its lowest level since 2020 ($27,000 per Bitcoin) last Thursday, although it has since recovered to reach above $30,000.  However, market volatility is just one reason we may never be able to rely on cryptocurrencies and the system that runs them, blockchain. Blockchains come with inherent issues – namely they require staggering amounts of energy to support, and they can be hacked, despite popular belief.  Some experts believe these issues make it unlikely that blockchains will ever become serious alternatives to banks.  Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are the internet's version of money - unique pieces of digital property that can be transferred...

It’s a tradition that COVID-19 nearly crushed. “It was really terrifying,” said Felix Foster, board chair of Twin Cities Pride. “At the beginning of the pandemic, we were like, ‘Oh, if we don’t have a festival, we might not be an organization next year, so we really tried to rally and pull it together.” They were able to piece the funding back together with fundraisers and virtual events, and this year they hope to be back, and big. “My hope is that it’s one of the biggest, and just that everyone like is really excited to...
    Four cameras staked out a spot in front of Kris Bryant’s locker in the Colorado Rockies clubhouse, a sight that was hard for him to miss as he approached after pregame batting practice. The Chicago Cubs’ four-game series against the Rockies isn’t Bryant’s first time facing his former team with which he earned every notable personal and team accolade a big-leaguer can achieve. No, that came in early August after Bryant was sent to the San Francisco Giants as part of one-third of the Cubs’ opening-day roster being traded at the deadline. “I enjoyed my time in Chicago, but I don’t know if it warrants a press conference every time I play them,” a smiling Bryant said before Thursday’s series opener at Coors Field. As Bryant embarks on the next chapter of his career in Colorado, he isn’t forgetting his past. “I don’t know if that chapter will ever close until I’m done playing baseball because I rely on a lot of what I went through there to make me who I am now and help me in the future...
    It took only a few weeks for California gas prices to rocket past $5 a gallon and reach nearly $6 last week. But drivers hoping to see a dramatic drop in fuel costs in the coming weeks – or even in time for a summer road trip – should not hold their breath, fuel industry experts said Monday. While statewide prices at the pump have slid back a bit in recent days to $5.85 a gallon, according to AAA, it could take months for prices in the Golden State to hit $5 again, even as President Joe Biden has sought to quell rising fuel costs by releasing 180 million barrels of oil from the strategic petroleum reserve over the next six months. The good news is that Biden’s oil release is expected to bring some modest relief to drivers around the country. The bad news? “I don’t really see the next time California or the Bay Area’s going get under that $5 mark – maybe later this year,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, a company...

    SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- We've all heard that Bay Area housing prices are out of control and higher than they've ever been. It's true, and it's a story we've all been seeing for years.

    By the end of the epic Lord Of The Rings trilogy, the elves had returned to their woodland realms, the dwarves to their underground halls and that accursed ring finally consigned to the fires of Mount Doom. But the human audience was hungry for more. So followed a three-part dramatisation of The Hobbit — but even that wasn't enough. Or at least that's the hope of Amazon, which has got its hands on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. The retail and streaming giant is set to unleash the most lavish ever screen spin-off of the British author's fantasy world. Its new 'prequel', Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power, tells the story of Middle-earth thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings. It comes to our screens on September 2, and the five-series extravaganza — running to 50 hours — is set to be the most expensive television production ever, with a budget running to more than $1 billion.

    INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on the Super Bowl: It’s hot at SoFi Stadium for Super Bowl 56. Just not the hottest ever for this game. The temperature is 82 ahead of kickoff between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals after having cooled off from 85 a couple hours before kickoff. California has been dealing with a heat wave over the past week with temperatures reaching into the low 90s in the region. That’s short of the record of 84 set on Jan. 14, 1973, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. ___ Getting into this Super Bowl at the last minute will mean a big hit to the wallet. StubHub says the get-in price Sunday was $3,800, a jump of 10% from Saturday, and the average price for tickets sold was $6,136. That’s a dip of 8% from Saturday. The site still had more than 1,400 tickets available Sunday morning. Fans from California have bought nearly 40% more tickets over the last 24 hours and also nearly 35% of new tickets sold in that span. The Cincinnati faithful...
    NASA is set to unveil the first ever images from its James Webb Space Telescope later today. The $10 billion (£7.4 billion) observatory settled into its orbit one million miles from our planet last month, and is gearing up to look back in time towards the dawn of the universe. It had been expected to take its first starry images in May, for release to the public in June, but the US space agency has now revealed plans to share preliminary snaps at 10:30 ET (15:30 GMT). Despite the excitement, scientists have cautioned that these images won't resemble the stunning photos of the cosmos taken by similar space telescopes. Instead, they are likely to be blurry and repetitive because they have been taken as part of the telescope's fine-tuning process.  NASA is set to unveil the first ever images from its James Webb Space Telescope later today  To align James Webb's mirrors, NASA pointed the telescope at HD 84406 — a sun-like, type G star that lies some 260 light-years-away in the constellation of Ursa Major. Engineers took 18 separate, out-of-focus images of HD 84406...

    The cable network said he added that, "Yes, your daughter can still participate in athletics and reap a lot of the benefits of athletics, but she'll never be on the podium." What else? Thomas has been receiving testosterone suppressors for nearly three years and competed on the UPenn men’s team before switching to the women's team in 2020, Fox News said. The transgender female swimmer is slated to compete at next month's Ivy League championships and has qualified for the NCAA Division I championships in March, the cable network said. What's more, Thomas has turned in better times this season than several collegiate swimmers who competed in last summer’s Olympics and swam the nation’s best times in the 200- and 500-yard freestyle last month, Fox News said, citing the New York Times. The College Swimming & Diving Coaches Association of America called on the NCAA Competition Oversight Committee to temporarily expand this year’s participation limit by one spot so Thomas "and the other cisgender women athletes who have earned the right to compete" can do so, the...
    The father of a UPenn women’s swim team member says that the women on the team are discouraged, knowing they can never beat transgender swimmer Lia Thomas. “[Thomas] is most likely going to be representing you and I and all other Americans at the Olympics,” the father, who has medical training, told Fox News Digital. The man also said his daughter “doesn’t think it’s fair” for the school to allow Thomas to compete on the team as a woman, and he insisted that Thomas could bring “actual physical harm” to his daughter and other female competitors. Thomas, of course, has caused an avalanche of criticism this season after spending nearly three seasons competing as a male swimmer but “transitioning” to a woman ahead of the 2021/22 swim season. Since joining the UPenn swim team, Thomas has smashed several women’s swimming records.

    In this article MRNA PFE It's been well over a year since a landmark proposal brought the issue of patent waiver for the mRNA Covid vaccine to the spotlight. But many observers don't see that waiving the intellectual property (IP) rights on Covid vaccines is an effective way to put a stop to the pandemic. Supporters of patent waivers like Harsha Thirumurthy, associate professor of medical ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania, argue the issue lies at the heart of the reason why vaccines are less accessible in lower-income countries. "It limits how much manufacturing there can be of that product or that vaccine," said Thirumurthy, adding it keeps the price "artificially high enough that it limits the ability of other countries in the world." But critics counter that patent waivers will not automatically lead to an improvement in global vaccine distribution. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates was among those who originally spoke out against the patent waiver, emphasizing that there are problems beyond patents that must be addressed first. Gates later reversed his stance and...
    (CNN)The Winter Games is just two weeks away and outside Beijing's Olympic venues, the banners and decorations are up. But so too are long rows of metal fences and guard posts, dividing the Chinese capital and barring anyone without an official Covid-safe pass.Having been largely sealed off from the world for two years, Beijing is bracing itself for the arrival of thousands of foreign Olympians, officials, journalists and support staff -- including from countries where the highly transmissible Omicron variant is raging.Whether Chinese authorities can keep the Games Covid-safe and prevent any flare-ups from spilling into Beijing is the ultimate test of China's zero-Covid strategy. The stringent prevention and control measures are held up by the ruling Communist Party as proof of the superiority of its political system. The strategy has kept infections and deaths low -- but has also isolated China from the world.And now, Beijing is applying those same measures to the Olympics. To limit the spread of infection, it is sealing the entire Games inside what authorities have called a "closed loop system" -- a bubble completely...
    OLD FANGAK, South Sudan (AP) — Nyayiar Kuol cradled her severely malnourished 1-year-old daughter as they traveled for 16 hours on a crowded barge to the nearest hospital to their home in rural South Sudan. For months she had been feeding her four children just once a day, unable to cultivate because of disastrous flooding and without enough food assistance from the government or aid groups. She worries her daughter might die. “I don’t want to think about what could happen,” she said. Seated on her hospital bed in Old Fangak town in hard-hit Jonglei state, the 36-year-old Kuol tried to calm her daughter while blaming the government for not doing more. Nearly two years have passed since South Sudan formed a coalition government as part of a fragile peace deal to end a five-year civil war that plunged pockets of the country into famine, and yet Kuol said nothing has changed. “If this country was really at peace, there wouldn’t be hunger like there is now,” she said.

    Fox News guest host Will Cain called out the hysteria surrounding the omicron variant on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," as well as inaccurate predictions made by President Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci. WILL CAIN: "The omicron variant has so far turned out to be everything Anthony Fauci said it wouldn't be. It has not been the winter of death and destruction that Joe Biden predicted — far from it. The omicron variant is mild. Just when you thought America could finally turn the corner on this pandemic, a new wave is sweeping across the land. Insanity. The unhinged meltdown on a Delta Air Lines flight by former Baywatch actress Patricia Cornwall wasn't a reminder of how far we have come during the pandemic. No, it was a sign of what is to come ... if the American people tolerate this insanity." … "Fear and neurotic paranoia seem more rampant than ever, even more so than the early days of 2020. And strangely, it comes from those who would ironically say they are the most protected. The thrice vaccinated. The double-masked person...
    President Joe Biden walks to the Oval Office upon his return to the White House on Dec. 20, 2021.Kevin Lamarque | Reuters When Scott Heins heard that the Biden administration was giving student loan borrowers another three months before they'll have to start making their payments again, he had mixed feelings. On one hand, the freelance photographer in Brooklyn, New York, doesn't know how the fast-spreading omicron variant of Covid-19 will impact his work, and so getting a little more time is a relief. More than a decade after graduating college, he still owes more than $20,000. Yet the repeated extensions are just a kind of spot treatment on a national crisis, Heins said. A year into Joe Biden's presidency, Heins is disappointed the chief executive hasn't moved to forgive student debt. On the campaign trail, Biden promised to cancel at least $10,000 per borrower. "I don't see student loan debt as something that there's a way out of, or a way around," Heins, 33, said. "My sights are set on what our political leadership is going to do." More...
    SULKING Sir Lewis Hamilton is suffering from a bit of 'self pity' but will come back stronger, Abu Dhabi race steward Derek Warwick insists. Warwick dismissed rumours the Mercedes ace was about to retire from motor racing after having his eighth world title snatched away from him on the final lap by Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. 2Lewis Hamilton has been backed to bounce backCredit: Alamy 2F1 steward and former Le Mans champion Warwick says Hamilton deserves to be champ tooCredit: Getty A 'disillusioned”'Hamilton is believed to be 'losing faith' in Formula One and last week broke protocol by boycotting the prestigious FAI awards ceremony. Warwick was the driver race steward at Abu Dhabi and it was his decision to allow Hamilton to continue in the lead after he was forced off the track at the first corner by Verstappen. But the former Grand Prix driver and 1992 24-hour Le Mans and World Sports Car champion was not involved in the contentious safety car incident that indirectly decided the 2021 championship. Race director Michael Masi has taken the brunt of the blame for the controversial...
    JUSTIN TAFA has become the first fighter to miss the heavyweight limit in UFC history. The New Zealander is scheduled to face Harry Hunsucker on the Derrick Lewis vs Chris Daukaus card tonight at the UFC Apex tonight. 2Justin Tafa, left, faces off with Harry HunsuckerCredit: Getty But whatever he was supposed to be paid for the bout will now be dented by a fine. Unlike in boxing, the UFC enforces a a 265lbs limit for its heavyweight division. This can be stretched to 266lbs for a non-title fight. But Tafa, 28, hit the scales at 267lbs. Fellow heavyweight Greg Hardy also missed weight ahead of his fight with Maurice Green in October 2020. But after being granted an hour to make the extra cut, Hardy managed to make weight at the second attempt.

    IN February it will be two years since Caroline Flack tragically took her own life at the age of 40. For her heartbroken mum Christine, 71, the pain is still as raw as it was when she lost her beloved daughter - and she anticipates this Christmas will be a struggle for her and her family. 8Caroline Flack tragically died in February 2020 at the age of 40Credit: Fabulous Magazine 8Her mum Christine Flack has opened up on how this Christmas will be harder than the lastCredit: Tim Stewart “It’s been worse this year, because it’s become real,” she tells The Sun in an exclusive interview, adding that her daughter is in her thoughts “every second of the day”.

    Feeling overwhelmed by the sensation that you’re going to be sick is one of the most miserably debilitating experiences — pity, then, people who live with nausea, feeling severely sick for days, weeks, even months on end. Experts say that for many people living with long-term conditions, the nausea this causes can be the worst part of their illness. ‘It is so debilitating that it stops people living their daily lives,’ says Gareth Sanger, a professor of neuropharmacology at the Blizard Institute at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.  ‘Research has found that patients are so desperate to escape chronic nausea that they say they would even be prepared to gamble on taking a theoretical pill that would have a 50/50 chance of curing them or killing them. It’s that bad.’ Experts say that for many people living with long-term conditions, the nausea this causes can be the worst part of their illness Recent research found that a quarter of women affected by severe, persistent nausea and vomiting during pregnancy suffered suicidal thoughts as a result.

    President Joe Biden will restrict travel from South Africa and seven other countries starting on Monday, following the detection on a highly transmissible new variant of COVID discovered there. Those countries are Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique, and Malawi, the White House said on Friday. ‘The policy was implemented out of an abundance of caution,’ a senior administration official said. The move follows similar travel bans by the UK and other European countries. The decision was made on the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the COVID-19 Response Team, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the President’s Chief Medical Advisor. ‘Our scientists and public health officials are working quickly to learn more about this variant,’ the official said. The US has announced restrictions on travel from eight African countries hours after White House COVID tsar Anthony Fauci, pictured, said they were being considered  The policy does not apply to American citizens and lawful permanent residents. As with all international travelers, they must still test negative prior to travel, the White House said. Further details on what new restrictions...

    Donald Trump sent out on Thursday morning a pre-recorded video honoring those who served in the U.S. armed forces, where he took a swipe at President Joe Biden for putting veterans 'through a lot.' 'We will come back,' Trump vowed in his 39-second Veterans Day message sent just after 7:00 a.m. and posted to Rumble, a Canadian online video platform. 'Our country has gone through a lot,' the former president continued. 'The last period of time has been very, very tough – watching what you had to watch. But our country will be back and we'll be stronger than ever. Happy Veterans Day.' Trump's message to veterans took aim at Biden's actions since taking office – including the bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan, which resulted in the deaths of 13 U.S. servicemembers in a suicide bombing outside the Kabul airport. Many veterans of the 20-year war in the Middle East were enraged that the withdrawal was so mishandled and immediately led to the Taliban takeover and collapse of the Afghan government that U.S. forces helped put in place. Donald Trump took...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Friday that former President Donald Trump contributed to Republican Glenn Youngkin's decisive victory in the Virginia governor's race – and predicted Republicans aided by Trump would keep racking up gains. The California lawmaker was asked at a press conference whether he would counsel other GOP candidates to follow the 'Youngkin model' that includes keeping distance from Trump – and whether he would counsel Trump to hang back from competitive races after the wealthy investor beat former Gov. Terry McAuliffe in a purple state Joe Biden had won by 10 percentage points.  Youngkin avoided parroting Trump's claims of election fraud and did not appear with the former president – although Trump endorsed him, spoke at a tele-rally, and claimed partial credit for his win.   'I don't see how the president distanced himself – he endorsed Youngkin in the primary. He did a telephone town hall forum to get the vote out. We found that the vote got out big,' he said.   House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy credited former President Donald Trump with driving turnout and...
    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” host Joy Reid said Virginia Lt. Gov.-elect Winsome Sears (R) will be the GOP’s “get out of racism free card while Republicans nationwide make ban all history that shows any white person doing anything wrong to black people ever their 2022 mantra.” Reid said Republicans are “rolling out their latest can’t call it racist card in the form of the newly-elected black lieutenant governor, the former national chair of Black Americans to Re-Elect Trump. It’s the latest version of the right’s tried and tired, look at that black person, you see them standing right there, right? They’re black, that they deployed when Trump’s soon-to-be Chief of Staff Mark Meadows physically displayed a silent black woman to prove that Trump was not a racist, back when he was a congressman. And now, this AR-15-wielding L.G. will be their new get out of racism free card while Republicans nationwide make ban all history that shows any white person doing anything wrong to black people ever their 2022 mantra.” She later added that “what Republicans are...

    STAR Trek actor William Shatner is to be launched into space — and will become the world’s oldest astronaut. The 90-year-old, who played Captain James T Kirk in the sci-fi series, will blast off for real next week on billionaire Jeff Bezos’ willy-shaped rocket. 4William Shatner is to be launched into space — and will become the world’s oldest astronaut Shatner, who famously said “to boldly go where no man has gone before” at the start of each episode, revealed yesterday: “I’ve heard about space for a long time now. "I’m taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle.” The Canadian added: “I’m going to be a ‘rocket man’!” He will climb aboard the New Shepard rocket from Blue Origin — the space company founded by Bezos, the world’s richest man. The Amazon founder, 57, was launched into space on it in July — but the trip was ridiculed as his vessel resembled a giant penis. Shatner will blast off with three other crew members at West Texas on October 12 for a ten-minute flight....
