    To say Saquon Barkley is excited for new Giants tackle Evan Neal is an understatement. “Evan Neal, he’s a physical specimen,” Barkley said Tuesday night at the United Way of New York City 29th annual Gridiron Gala at The Glasshouse in Midtown Manhattan. “He came for the draft top 30 visit. All the draft people kinda were by my locker. He was there and I was like, oh my God, who is that? “I saw him and was like I would not be mad if we would pick him up,” the running back said with a smile. “I didn’t know he was gonna drop that far (to No. 7 overall), but great. I’m glad he’s on our team.” Barkley, one of Tuesday night’s Hometown Heroes, said he’s not making any grand predictions or putting extra pressure on Neal (from Alabama) and No. 5 overall pick Kayvon Thibodeaux (from Oregon). He just knows they’re two special additions to the team. “They’re great talents,” he said. “I’m excited especially selfishly as a running back, when you get a 6-7, 350-pound lineman helping...
    Elon Musk is hard to love. Elon Musk is hard to like. On his way to becoming the world’s wealthiest person, Musk has emitted so many metric tons of self-indulgent puerility he might have violated the Paris Accords. But one need not find Musk personally or politically appealing to appreciate that his contributions to humanity could end up being profound. Through his endeavors in solar power and electric cars, Musk might do more to combat climate change than just about any lefty environmental activist or politician you can name. Musk looks even better when judged against other globe-straddling billionaires in his orbit. His is not an empire built on inheritance, dumb luck, monopoly or, subsidies notwithstanding, insider access. Indeed, his businesses seek to undermine some of the most harmful and politically entrenched industries on the planet, among them defense contractors, utilities, oil companies and combustion-engine automakers. There is also something straightforwardly inspiring about Musk’s story. After a troubled childhood in South Africa, he immigrated first to Canada and then to the United States, put himself through college and made his own...
    (CNN)Russian President Vladimir Putin often evokes the Soviet Union's epic defeat of Nazi Germany during World War II to justify his country's invasion of Ukraine.Yet Putin is committing some of the same blunders that doomed Germany's 1941 invasion of the USSR -- while using "Hitler-like tricks and tactics" to justify his brutality, military historians and scholars say.This is the savage irony behind Putin's decision to invade Ukraine that's become clear as the war enters its second month: the Russian leader, who portrays himself as a student of history, is floundering because he hasn't paid enough attention to the lessons of the "Great Patriotic War" he reveres."I have been trying to make sense of this for a month, because as terrible as Putin is, you could never say he was illogical," says Peter T. DeSimone, an associate professor of Russian and Eastern European history at Utica University in New York."All of this is illogical, and that's the scary thing," he says. "This is not normal for what he's done in the past. This is something that makes no sense on many...
    A former National Guardsman who worked security at a private Jewish academy in Ohio was arrested for allegedly making terrorist threats about shooting students and parents.  Thomas Develin, 24, who worked as a security guard at the Columbus Torah Academy, a private Jewish K-12 school, was accused on Friday of making disturbing comments about wanting to harm students on the Discord group messaging app with other National Guard members, ABC 6 reported. In court, police shared a photo Develin allegedly sent to the group on March 11 of him holding a handgun while commenting: 'I'm at a Jewish school and about to make it everyone's problem.'  In a separate post, he allegedly wrote, 'The playground is about to turn into a self-defense situation' and that he wanted to 'shoot parents coming to pick up their children.' Police arrested Develin on Wednesday, and he is being held on a $1 million bond at Franklin County Jail with a hearing set for April 8.  Prosecutors said Develin was fired and has been suspended from the National Guard.  Scroll down for video  Thomas Develin,...

    CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN snubbed Manchester United over a promise made to Tottenham owner Daniel Levy in 2017, according to reports. The Daily Mail claimed the Dane's agent Martin Schoots passed on the vow that he would not join another London club out of respect to Spurs. 2 Christian Eriksen is full of respect for his former clubCredit: Reuters 2 Daniel Levy didn't want to see Eriksen play elsewhere in EnglandCredit: Alamy And Eriksen, 29, apparently extended his promise to all English clubs when United's interest came out. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was hoping to secure an £80million deal for the playmaker but failed to land his man. Eriksen handed in a transfer request in 2019 after outlining his desire for a new challenge. That sparked plenty of interest with both Real and Atletico Madrid joining Juventus in the hunt. But the Spurs ace eventually joined Inter Milan for £17million in the January transfer window last year as his contract began to run down. After initially struggling, Eriksen found his form under Antonio Conte and helped Inter win their first Serie A title...
    Capitol Police officers are said to be unhappy that a black colleague who became a figurehead in the wake of the January 6 riots talks too much about being racially-abused during the violence.    The officers have grown uneasy with Sgt. Harry Dunn's self-appointed role as an advocate for the force. Those unnamed cops saying he is too focused on racial issues given two of the officers who died after the attack were white, the New York Times reported, and that Dunn is making the violence 'all about race.'  Dunn testified to the January 6 House Select Committee that rioters had called him the n-word and made other racist remarks towards him. He has also made several media appearances where he addressed the alleged racism of January 6, 2020, but also applauded the bravery of the entire police force. However, numerous officers are not thrilled that he has become the voice speaking for the entire Capitol Police force. They allege he has grown 'increasingly despondent' since the attack and often eats his lunch alone in his car. Some Capitol Police officer have...
    Although President Joe Biden promised to deliver 500 million free rapid COVID tests to Americans in a speech on Tuesday, the tests may not come in time to suppress the enormous spread of the Omicron variant predicted in the coming weeks. The Biden administration has yet to actually sign a contract to buy the tests, and the website to order them will not be up until January, The New York Times reported.  It is not even known how many tests will be immediately available or how quickly they can be shipped out to American homes, all while the most recent estimates of the Omicron spread predict more than 2 million new cases a day throughout January.  'That's not a plan - it's a hope,' Jennifer Nuzzo, an epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, told The Times.  'If those tests came in January and February, that could have an impact, but if they are spread out over 10 to 12 months, I'm not sure what kind of impact it is going to have.'  Biden's scramble to boost...

    A Connecticut woman was arrested after she was accused of convincing her husband he had Alzheimer's and stealing nearly $600,000 from his over the course of two decades.  Donna Marino, 63, was arrested Wednesday after her husband John, 73, approached the East haven Police Department in March 2020 to report a 'large scale fraud,' Capt.

    Such practices keep "whiteness at the center — which is the definition of 'white supremacy,'" he added. The Post reported that as of Wednesday morning, Thompson's social presence appears to have been set to private. What did people say in response? According to the outlet, conservative author Brigitte Gabriel shared the clip, which she captioned, "FIRE this teacher." Others, the Post noted, said that Thompson was the "perfect poster boy for woke," while another another social media user added, "So you're telling me when I was in school and not listening, I was fighting racism? Wait until my mom hears this!" One user, who identified herself as a black school teacher, pointed out that Thompson's remarks were divisive to say the least. She wrote, "I'm a black teacher. Any notion that behaving and following directions are inherently white traits disgusts me. It highlights the bigotry of low expectations that permeates the Education system. Black and brown students are capable and should not be held to separate standards." Another user chimed in, "Implying minorities can't be held...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made plain Friday that President Biden expects U.S. assets to kill the terrorists who ordered the attack on the airport in Kabul amid the evacuation of Americans and Afghans. She added her own dose of colorful language, a day after Biden stated bluntly to those who carried out the attack that 'we will hunt you down and make you pay.' Asked at a Friday press briefing to explain exactly what Biden meant, Psaki responded: 'I think he made clear yesterday that he does not want them to live on the earth any more.'  She was responding to a question from Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy about whether Biden 'is going to order a mission to kill the people responsible, or would he be satisfied if they are captured?'  'I think he made clear yesterday that he does not want them to live on the earth any more,' White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Friday, asked about President Biden's vow to 'hunt' down those who carried out the attack at the Kabul airport...
    At the beginning of July Hugh Jackman caused a huge disturbance among fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with two Stories from his Instagram that set off many alarms. Hours after sharing a Bosslogic fan art, he posted a photo with Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios. His followers began to wonder if it meant something.

The actor has admitted that he messed up a bit with those publications and has apologized in an interview with ComicBook: “I was literally reposting fan art, I do it quite often because I love it. And I love the fans. Then I went to do things and when I came back I was like, ‘Oh, I think I’ve broken the internet. No no no no. Guys, sorry. It was not my intention. Really not. I am so sorry’. And I thought, ‘No one is going to believe me. But that was the case. You are too fast for me. Clearly too fast and smarter than me. I...

    THIS is the race that landed a top trainer a £2700 fine after he slammed a jockey for 'making sure his horse didn't win'. A clip of Richard Laming's explosive rant aimed at hero Australian jockey Damien Oliver was leaked online. 6Oliver looked to have the horse in a brilliant position to strike turning into the straightCredit: racing.com In it, Laming wrongly accused Oliver, who has won more than £120million in his career, of purposely giving the horse 'no chance'. Stewards ruled there was absolutely no wrongdoing on 49-year-old Oliver's part and that Laming's 'offensive' rant - which came about in a message sent to the horse's owners - warranted a hefty fine. The Australian trainer saw red after his horse, Cecil Street Lad, finished fifth in a race at Sandown, Victoria, on Sunday, having started as 2-1 favourite. Laming was recorded saying: "I'm going to say it straight how it is - it was a bad ride.

    Joe Biden will already break his promise to exempt Americans making under $400,000 from tax hikes as he plans to raise the top tax rate for married couples making just over $500,000. The White House clarified to Axios on Wednesday that Biden's vow not to raise taxes on people making $400,000 or less was in reference to an individual and not couples filing jointly. However, the president is now proposing raising the top tax rate from 37 per cent to 39.6 per cent for couples making $509,300 in combined income. Couples where each spouse makes $399,999 on their own will not escape the tax increase and therefore goes against Biden's promise not to raise taxes on individuals making less than $400,000. More precisely two individuals each with taxable income exceeding $255,000 who are married would be subject to the tax increase. The rate is also increasing for individual filers making more than $452,700 in Biden's new proposal. Joe Biden could break his promise not to raises taxes on those making less than $400,000 as he proposes hiking rates for...
    President Joe Biden speaks in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.Leigh Vogel | Bloomberg | Getty Images President Joe Biden will formally unveil his new tax plan during his first presidential address on Wednesday that includes a key campaign promise — no one making $400,000 or less should see increased taxes. Some experts wonder whether his sweeping plan can keep to that pledge. "I challenge you to find an economist who will say that is even possible," said William McBride, vice president for federal tax and economic policy at the Tax Foundation. The reason, according to McBride, is that everyone in the economy is connected. "If you raise tax on this taxpayer here, good luck in isolating that effect to just that taxpayer," McBride said.

The presenter of the La Sexta space, Cristina Pardo, wanted to know if humor ages badly. “I am one of those who think that it is better for humor to advance with society, not be evoking lost paradises, “said the comedian about it. “I used to make macho jokes that I no longer do”, The comedian confessed to Pardo, pointing out that “nothing happens” if you stop making jokes about certain topics, because there are people who don’t think it’s good. “I am one of those who think that it is better for humor to advance” It is not the first time that Reyes reflects on the responsibility of the messages he transmits as a comedian. “We have very well defined limits.

    THE NASHVILLE bomber's girlfriend had warned police last year that her boyfriend had been making bombs - but nothing was done to stop him. Anthony Warner's girlfriend had told Nashville police that he "was making bombs in the RV trailer at his residence" on August 21, 2019, but little was done in the year that passed since her tip.

When they returned for a second time and were denied entry to search the property, the tip went unnoticed.

    (CNN)"Schitt's Creek" actor François Arnaud has shared that he identifies as bisexual."Last week, I was chatting with work friends, and as I brought up a trip I'd taken with an ex-girlfriend, I asked myself -- for the ten-thousandth time -- how to tell such a story without making it seem like that was the whole story of me," Arnaud wrote on his Instagram stories Wednesday in honor of Bi Visibility Day.He added that it's a common experience for people to assume bisexual men are straight."I'm sure many bisexual guys feel the same and end up doing as I did: letting other people's assumptions of straightness stand uncorrected," Arnaud said. "Perhaps out of fear of oversharing. Under the guise of privacy, maybe. Probably because 'masculinity' is a most fragile currency, ready to nose-dive at the first sign of vulnerability or difference."He continued: "Without a doubt because of stigmas of indecisiveness, infidelity, deception and trendiness are still clinging to bisexuality. But here's the thing. Silence has the perverse effect of perpetuating those stereotypes, making bi guys invisible, and leading people to doubt...

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Trump was making 'a satirical point that was quite funny' and noted his tweet was specifically targeted at CNN, a TV network the president regularly blasts as fake news.
