    THE START of the school year is chaotic for any family, but when you're a parent of 13 children, it can be absolute carnage. Emma Hann, 51, mum of Scotland's largest family, is looking forward to a quieter year now that only four of her massive brood need to go into school. 2The family-of-15 now only have four children in school and it is far easier for mum EmmaCredit: Mhairi Edwards/DCT Media 2Emma now only has to arrange four school uniforms where previously she had to sort a whopping 13Credit: SWNS:South West News Service The huge family, who live in Dundee, are known for being the biggest family in the country. But now that only seven of her children live at home, Emma is looking forward to a far more relaxed return to term time. This means the family won't have to shell out for more than a dozen school uniforms and the school run will be far simpler for Emma and her husband Roy.

    More Americans are unhappy with President Biden's job in office than at any point in his presidency, according to a dim new Quinnipiac poll.  Just 31 percent of adults say they approve of the way Biden is handling the presidency while 60 percent disapprove. Among registered voters, 33 percent said they approved while 59 percent disapprove.  The low approval spelled bad news for Biden's 2024 prospects.   A whopping 71 percent of Americans do not want to see Biden run again in 2024 - including a majority of Democrats, 54 percent. Only 24 percent do want to see Biden run for a second term. Forty percent of Democrats said they would like to see him run. The findings contrast with support for Donald Trump on the Republican side - 69 percent of Republicans said they want to see him run again in 2024, 27 percent said they would not.  'Among all Americans, 60 percent said they did not want to see Trump as the GOP nominee.  Things are looking worse for Biden in Iowa, historically the first state in the nation...
    A greater percentage of Americans believe former President Donald Trump should run again in 2024 than say the same of President Joe Biden, a Politico/Morning Consult survey released this week found. The survey asked respondents if they believe Trump should run for president in 2024. Thirty-five percent, overall, said he either “definitely” or “probably” should, while 61 percent said he either “definitely” or “probably” should not. However, the survey asked respondents the same of Biden and found that even fewer believe he should run for reelection in 2024. According to the survey, 28 percent believe Biden should either “definitely” or “probably” run again in 2024. Of those, 14 percent said he “definitely” should, compared to the 25 percent who said Trump “definitely” should. Further, slightly more — 64 percent — said Biden “definitely” or “probably” should not run again in 2024. Trump is seeing far more support among the Republican base than Biden is receiving from Democrats with respect to a potential 2024 presidential bid. Sixty-six percent of Republican voters want Trump to run again, compared to 51 percent of...
    by Max Keating   More Americans would like to see former President Donald Trump run in 2024 than President Joe Biden, but neither candidate enjoys broad support for a potential campaign, a new Politico poll found. Of all registered voters, 35% reported that Trump should “definitely” or “probably” run, whereas just 29% reported the same answers for Biden, the poll showed. However, the poll is not all positive for Trump, as both men have staunch opposition to their prospective candidacies in 2024 and almost half of the population strongly opposes either of them running. For Trump, 48% of Americans said he should “definitely not” run, while 46% gave the same “definitely not” response for Biden’s candidacy, according to the poll.

    More than 70 percent of Americans do not want Joe Biden to stand for re-election in 2024, according to yet another dire poll for the president. Biden's approval rating also dropped to a low of 38 percent at a time when the president is facing a potentially damaging verdict from voters in the upcoming midterm elections in November. Biden, 79, would find it almost impossible to implement his legislative agenda if Republicans take control of Congress in the elections. The Harvard CAPS/Harris poll found that a massive 71 percent of Americans do not believe Biden should not run for a second term amid high inflation rates and soaring gas prices. For those who believe Biden should not stand for re-election, 30 percent said it was because he was too old - he will be 81 at the 2024 election - while 45 percent said he was 'a bad president'. Most of those polled said that they had concerns about whether Biden was mentally fit to serve, with 60 percent saying they had doubts about his mental fitness. More than 70 percent of...
    Eighty-two New York City school teachers were accused of submitting fake vaccine cards they allegedly acquired through a $1.5 million scheme run by a holistic pediatric center in Long Island.  In January, nurse practitioner Julie DeVuono, 49, and members of her staff were charged with dishing out fake vaccine cards to hundreds of customers at the Wild Child Pediatric Healthcare facility in Amityville, which offers natural remedies to patients. Among their clients included 82 teachers in the city, who were charged $220 for each fake dose marked on their cards and were suspended without pay in April, the New York Post reported.  Several of the teachers, however, claimed they did get the vaccine properly from DeVuono's clinic as their union, the United Federation of Teachers, said it intends to sue the city's Department of Education over the suspensions.

    (CNN)"Stranger Things" experiences a serious case of gigantism in its fourth and final season, with super-sized episodes and even more drawn-out lead-ups to things actually happening. That's not to say the seven episodes premiering this week don't have their moments, only that you have to wade through a lot of "Strange"-ness in order to encounter them.After a near-three-year absence since Season 3, and with the kids looking conspicuously older and thus graduating into a different set of issues in a way that parallels the maturation in "Harry Potter" -- the Netflix series is in some ways a victim of its own success. Burdened by expectations and clearly unfettered in terms of creative interference, the producers have responded with a dizzying new threat while scattering the characters, in one case across the globe in terms of that cliffhanger involving Hopper (David Harbour).The first two episodes feel particularly bloated before the storytelling by the Duffer brothers and company settles into its groove. Even then, there are detours and subplots that could easily be jettisoned or trimmed, killing time as the show peels...

    Last year, with their secondary well stocked and their pass rush trending up, the Ravens spent a small fortune on a questionable investment: their run defense. Defensive lineman Calais Campbell, after a 2020 season low on sacks (four, his fewest since his rookie year) and high on absences (four missed games, the most in his career), returned to Baltimore with a $13 million salary cap hit. Defensive tackle Brandon Williams, a reliable and durable interior anchor over eight seasons with the Ravens, was also back. His price tag: $12.9 million. Stopping the run has long been “a Ravens tenet,” general manager Eric DeCosta said at the NFL scouting combine last month, and in an otherwise disastrous defensive season, Campbell and Williams could not be blamed for a leaky front. The Ravens finished third in the NFL in yards per carry allowed (3.8) and fourth in overall efficiency, according to Football Outsiders. Only five opponents rushed for at least 100 yards against them. But in devoting nearly one-seventh of the Ravens’ salary cap space to two run-stopping stalwarts, DeCosta saw limited...
    A touching ceremony that honored the Mets’ greatest player of all time. A raucous crowd on its feet and applauding during manager and player introductions for a club that revamped its roster, significantly increased its payroll and made itself a true contender. A ferocious starting pitcher stepping on the Diamondbacks’ necks. A powerful Mets lineup refusing to lie down, even against a noncompetitive team. One of the most anticipated Mets home openers in franchise history lived up to the hype. The Mets beat the Diamondbacks, 10-3, on Friday afternoon at CIti Field surrounded by a sellout crowd of 43,820. Fans roared as Francisco Lindor, Robinson Cano, Starling Marte, and Lindor again, belted home run after home run. Despite the onslaught of runs and double-digit hits, it wasn’t enough. Mets fans broke out in chants and cried out for more. The crowd remained on its feet well after the home run parade settled down. “You want to go out and do everything you can for the fans,” Cano said. “They show you the love and the support, and you want to...
    DENVER (CBS4)– Because of staffing shortages, more than two dozen A Line trips from Union Station to Denver International Airport were canceled on Tuesday. The reason, according to RTD, is that there is no second crew member available on the trains. (credit: CBS) That is a federal requirement. According to RTD, “Commuter rail trains (A Line, B Line, G Line and N Line) must have a federally-required second crewmember on board, per the Federal Railroad Administration. If the second crewmember cannot be staffed, then the trip cannot run.” RTD said the A Line will run every 30 minutes on Tuesday, leaving DIA at :27 and :57 minutes after the hour and at :00 and :30 minutes after the hour from Union Station. Typically, the A Line runs every 15 minutes. The canceled trips include: 11:12 am from Denver Airport Station to Union Station Track 1 11:42 am from Denver Airport Station to Union Station Track 1 12:12 pm from Denver Airport Station to Union Station Track 1 12:42 pm from Denver Airport Station to Union Station Track...
    VIDEO6:2306:23Emerging (& Reducing) Markets?ETF Edge It's an exchange-traded fund looking to go green in more ways than one. Run by DWS Group, the Emerging Markets Carbon Reduction and Climate Improvers ETF (EMCR) invests in public companies that are reducing their carbon footprints. It's a global strategy that's appears to be paying off. It's up 57% over the past two years. There's plenty of demand for this style of net-zero carbon reduction strategy, according to the firm's head of systematic investment solutions Arne Noack. "EMCR is a broadly diversified emerging market index that really seeks to track the market capitalization-weighted index," he told CNBC's "ETF Edge" last week. Noack, who runs the ETF, wants to help reduce the carbon footprint by 60% even though the urgency is changing. Prices in the carbon credit market have collapsed in connection with the Russia-Ukraine war. "The agenda has shifted somewhat very understandably," Noack said Monday. "But in the long run, the topic of climate change and carbon reduction will come back to a broader agenda." Despite the ETF's strong performance, it has run into...
    Ellen DeGeneres will pay out more than $2 million in bonuses to her staff as she prepares for the final episodes of her award-winning talk show, which will feature a slate of guests, including former First Lady Michelle Obama. The curtains will close on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on May 26 after a nearly two-decade run that culminated in a firestorm of controversy over claims of a toxic workplace environment, an internal investigation by Warner Bros. and the firing of three top executives. Ahead of DeGeneres’s swan song, sources close to the talk show host told DailyMail.com that she is preparing to pay more than $2 million in bonuses to employees. It is not clear how the funds are being distributed, but sources told Deadline that staffers on the show for one to four years will receive two-week pay, staffers with four to eight years under their belt will receive three-week pay and so on – capped at six weeks of pay for the shows longest-serving employees. About 30% of the show’s staff have been on the show for over...
    designer491 | iStock | Getty Images By the looks of it, state-run retirement programs for private-sector employees are generally working as intended. Those with no access to a 401(k) plan or similar workplace option have collectively saved more than $400 million in individual retirement accounts through such programs. To date, there are three states that have them up and running, although others are on deck. "Making these available to more private-sector workers so they can save for retirement is absolutely critical," said Angela Antonelli, executive director of Georgetown University's Center for Retirement Initiatives.

    A Florida hospital worker with more than 100,000 TikTok followers has died after being involved in a hit-and-run accident while leaving his shift. Endoscopy technician Leonardo Gil Fraga, 34, had been riding on his motorcycle at around 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday before he was hit by an SUV that was turning left at the intersection of East 8th Avenue and 21st Street in Hialeah, a city in Miami-Dade County. The driver of a dark-colored SUV was captured turning left onto the roadway only seconds before Gil - who had the right of way - had entered the intersection.  Girl was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital where he eventually succumbed to his injuries. He leaves behind a young son. He had been employed at Hialeah Hospital for more than a decade where he started as a janitor after his family immigrated from Cuba before working his way up to a patient transporter and then an endoscopy technician. An endoscopy is a procedure used to examine the inside of the body using a flexible tube.  A GoFundMe page for the TikTok star...

Tony’s Luncheonette and Catering on Route 57 in Hackettstown made the announcement on its Facebook page New Year’s Day. “After 43 years in business we announce our retirement,” reads the post. Dec. 31 was the last day open for the deli-style eatery, which had become well-known for its breakfast and lunch specialties like Italian hotdogs, breakfast platters, cheesesteaks, burgers and more. “We thank our wonderful customers, most who became family to us for their business all of these years,” says the post. “We look forward to the next chapter of our lives and our journey ahead!”

    Hong Kong (CNN)A North Korean defector who escaped from prison in northeast China has been recaptured by authorities, after more than 40 days on the run in the biting winter cold.The 39-year-old, identified by Chinese authorities as Zhu Xianjian, was just two years short of completing his sentence, when he staged an escape that went viral, state media reported.Court documents detail that Zhu was a North Korean coal miner who swam across a river to a Chinese village in Tumen city, Jilin province in 2013. He was arrested later that year, and in 2014 was sentenced to 11 years in prison for illegal border crossing, larceny and robbery, to be followed by his deportation, according to a court judgment. Zhu, whose sentence was twice reduced owing to good behavior, broke free from prison in the city of Jilin on October 18. His dramatic escape, which was caught on video and included using a rope to damage an electric fence and jumping off a high prison wall, has led to speculation online that Zhu was a former member of the North...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) ambitions of keeping the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives past the midterm elections next year are dwindling as droves of vulnerable Democrats have announced they are leaving their current seats to either retire or seek a different office instead of fighting in a brutal reelection. Republicans only need to net five seats to pick up the House majority after the midterms. So far, more than triple the amount of Democrats (18 total) have decided to officially call it quits on the House and have left their seats open for a fight, giving Republicans a chance to gain another seat since House Republicans only need to net five seats to gain the majority and retire Pelosi as Speaker. Vulnerable Democrats will be facing tough reelection battles across the county, having to campaign in districts that more than likely have different lines after redistricting in addition to their having sided with President Joe Biden on many key partisan issues, as his approval numbers after only holding office for ten months have tanked. This week, vulnerable Democrat Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-NY), a loyal confidant...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — An elderly Mission District man was acquitted of hit-and-run after his attorney showed the accuser had “a longstanding and unfounded animus” against him and there was no evidence a hit-and-run happened, the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office announced Tuesday. A jury found 76-year-old Carlos Olivares Herrera not guilty last week of hit-and-run after deliberating for two hours. READ MORE: Embattled District Attorney Chesa Boudin: 'We Want Everyone To Feel Safe' In San FranciscoOn August 6, Herrera was parked on Folsom St. near 22nd St. when he noticed a local community group giving away free bags of groceries.

As Olivares walked back to his car with the groceries, one of the giveaway organizers allegedly became incensed and ran after him to retrieve the bag, and claimed his car hit her on the hip as Olivares pulled away from the curb.

    THERE were 77 reports of violence against referees in England last season and the FA are considering lifetime playing bans. But what do the authorities do when yobs start picking on VAR? 3There are plans for offside calls to be made by 'robot linesman' at the World Cup in Qatar next yearCredit: PA In Brazil, bare-chested numpties charged on to the pitch at the end of Gremio’s 3-1 defeat to Palmeiras before destroying pitchside VAR equipment. Their anger was directed at cameras which showed that a would-be equaliser in their Serie A match was fractionally offside. It might just as well have been an attack on a coffee plantation because the beans are brown. Thankfully, this is unlikely to be a common event. With the scientific proposal to post a dozen cameras to ensure inch-perfect offside decisions, it would need a hooligan invasion of Viking proportions to make a serious impact. I hope no one here will ever be tempted to try. Look again at the last paragraph, a dozen cameras. That’s nearly enough for a royal wedding. And Arsene...
    The Rams have one goal — not just to get to the Super Bowl, as they did in the 2018 season, but to win it. Anything short of that will be a letdown. For this franchise, there is no five-year plan. The window is squarely 2021. They'll worry about the subsequent seasons as they come. It's a far cry from the Rams team that ended up leaving Southern California back in the mid-1990s. Back then, the team was owned by Georgia Frontiere, who took over the reins after the sudden death of her husband, Carroll Rosenbloom, in 1979. After moving to Anaheim Stadium in Orange County, after decades at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Rams played second fiddle in this region to not just the Lakers and the Dodgers, but the Oakland Raiders, too. Frontiere's run was relatively successful, but it was marked by a frugal nature. If I had to compare her ownership to anyone, it would be Rachel Phelps, from the classic baseball movie "Major League." Phelps' plan was to tank the fictional...

    Donald Trump and the Republican Party had four years to pass an infrastructure bill revamping and upgrading the nation’s transportation systems, broadband access, roadways, and everything else included in the current so-called “bipartisan” infrastructure package that has already passed the Senate. They didn’t come anywhere close to accomplishing that. In fact, they made no real effort to do so for the simple reason that the Republican Party has no interest in governing for the purpose of helping the American people. The only legislative accomplishment of Trump’s entire wretched tenure was a mammoth tax cut for the very wealthiest Americans and the corporations that many of them own and operate. Those tax cuts resulted primarily in stock buybacks, which simply further enriched those corporations and those at the top of them. They did not “trickle down” in any substantive way to ordinary Americans. Nor did the extraordinary largesse pocketed by these individuals and corporations create any lasting job growth, or even investment in research and development from those same companies. Ultimately, it really wasn’t a tax “cut” as much as it was a massive giveaway of money...
    The Biden administration is considering paying out a whopping $450,000 per person to families separated at the southern border as it tries to settle lawsuits with  migrants who say the policy caused them lasting psychological damage.  Officials from the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering the payments that could total close to $1 million for two people within the same family, people familiar told the Wall Street Journal.  The American Civil Liberties Union, which represents the separated families, has identified about 5,500 children separated from parents at the border during the course of the Trump-era policy.  Former President Trump's administration enacted the policy in April 2018 and withdrew it two months later after much controversy in June.   The total potential payout could cost $1 billion or more.  The 'zero-tolerance policy' applied to families who illegally crossed the US-Mexico border to claim asylum. Since children could not be detained alongside their parents, the families were separated, sometimes with no way to track and reunited them later on, government investigations found.  The Biden administration is considering paying...
    Two-thirds of Republican voters endorse former President Donald Trump’s potential bid for office in 2024, a Wednesday poll showed. Fifty-one percent of Republican and Republican-leaning respondents of the new Morning Consult/Politico poll said that Trump should “definitely” run again, and 16% of them responded that he “probably” should launch a presidential campaign in 2024. The poll surveyed 1,999 registered voters between Oct. 8-11. There is a +/- 2 percentage point margin of error. Only 14% of Republicans were strongly opposed a Trump reelection bid, while 15% of them said he should “probably not” run again, and 4% had no concrete opinion. ????????????

    "People are talking about vaccinations, well these are people that are vaccinated," Smart said, though he did not identify who had tested positive. "We're talking about breakthroughs, and so that concerns you not only for the players on your team that are unvaccinated, that are playing and not playing, because we want everybody to be safe. But it concerns me for the players that are vaccinated that we could lose them." Smart told reporters last month that more than 90% of his players, coaches, and staffers had been fully vaccinated, ESPN said. The coach, naturally, is disappointed. "This is the highest we've been since fall camp right now," he said. "I think there's this relief that you guys feel like everything's back to normal, well it's really just not for us right now." Lest anyone think the only people connected to the team getting invected are careless players and trainers, Georgia's sports medicine director, Ron Courson, who is also fully vaxxed, was diagnosed with COVID-19 last week and has had a "tough run" of it, according to Smart.

    Pictured: Michael Moultry Jr, seen with his father Mychal Moultry Sr At least 68 people were shot, and a four-year-old boy killed, during bloody Labor Day weekend in Democrat-run cities across the country.  In Chicago alone, where four-year-old Mychal Moultry Jr. died after being shot in his bed, 58 people were gunned down.  Moultry Jr. was sleeping at his father's home on the 6500 block of South Ellis around 9 pm Friday night when he was struck twice in the head by gunfire that came through the window from outside the residence, according to NBC Chicago.  A spate of attacks also erupted in Washington D.C. and New York City, where a cab driver was gunned down by a 15-year-old boy in the early hours of Sunday morning.  Overall, murders have increased 16 percent across most major U.S. cities, which are dominantly governed by democrats, so far in 2021 compared to 2020, according to a new report published by Fox News.   At least 68 people were shot, and a four-year-old boy killed, during bloody Labor Day weekend in Democrat-run cities across the...
    This month's Daily Kos/Civiqs survey was created with the intention of trying to pinpoint why President Joe Biden's approval ratings are falling. While he hasn’t yet delivered on everything promised, he’s moved quickly to put a down payment on much of the agenda that he ran on. And while the Afghanistan withdrawal was undoubtedly chaotic, his numbers started falling even before the last several weeks of news coverage. So what gives, and what can Democrats do about it? The poll, which tested 12 Biden accomplishments, found that 10 of them were quite popular, winning either majority or plurality approval. Biden's nationwide vaccination push proved by to be far his most winning policy, garnering 71% approval from registered voters.  The data were very interesting, but did little to illuminate the reasons for Biden's sagging approvals. In fact, in some ways it yielded more questions than answers. The Civiqs poll of Biden’s already-implemented policies, coupled with this week’s Data For Progress survey of policies the president is still working to push through Congress, demonstrated the overwhelming strength of Biden's sweeping agenda. Popular polices = popular president, right? Yet, in...
    A SUSPECT on the run for more than 12 years finally faced a court this week — and was given bail. The man, who had two kids as a fugitive, was told he was “very lucky” to be free again. 1The suspect was bailed by judge David Griffith-Jones QC despite 12 years on the run But he is subject to strict conditions until a trial for GBH in November. The court heard the man, 37, skipped bail in April 2009. A warrant for his arrest was issued by Maidstone crown court but he was not picked up by police until last week. At the same court on Monday, he admitted failing to surrender and was bailed by Judge David Griffith-Jones QC with a “robust and appropriate package” of conditions. These include residence, a tagged curfew, a GPS-monitored exclusion zone beyond the M25, and not to apply for travel documents. Judge Griffith-Jones said: “You’re a very lucky man I have found it appropriate in spite of your history to grant you bail.” The man then thanked the judge, assuring him: “I...
    The city of Denver, which Democrat mayors have governed since 1963, spends at least double on homelessness than it does on K-12 students. According to a study conducted by the University of Colorado Denver and the advocacy group Common Sense Institute, “the city reportedly spends between $41,679 and $104,201 on each person experiencing homelessness in a year while only $19,202 on each K-12 public school student over the same period of time,” Fox News reported. Denver’s Fox 31 reported that the city spends $481 million on services for the homeless, including health care, housing, and more. “Homelessness spending in the Denver metro is nearly four times the 2021 budget for the Colorado Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, and hundreds of millions more than the labor and employment or the public safety departments,” the station reported. The city announced a five-year plan for decreasing homelessness on Wednesday. However, the city does not track per-capita spending, a city spokesperson told the Denver Post. According to Fox News: “The aim of all these steps and our entire strategy is to help as many of...
    When Caitlyn Jenner launched her bid for governor in late April, the Olympic Gold medal-winning decathlete and reality television star’s website had just two options: “Shop” and “Donate.” The gubernatorial candidate wouldn’t stake out her first policy position until a week later, when a camera-wielding paparazzo in the parking lot of an upscale Malibu strip mall asked Jenner for her opinion on legislation in various states that would ban transgender girls from playing girls’ sports in school. The most prominent transgender candidate in American political history paused to shepherd her dog Baxter into her Cadillac Escalade, turned back to the camera and said she opposed “biological boys who are trans competing in girls’ sports in school.” Jenner’s position put her in diametric opposition to LGBTQ advocacy groups around the country, who have been battling a record number of anti-trans bills pushed by conservatives in more than 30 states. “It would be comical if it weren’t so dangerous,” said Samuel Garrett-Pate — a spokesperson for Equality California, the nation’s largest statewide LGBTQ+ civil rights organization. Veteran GOP strategist Mike...
    Pete Alonso. David Zalubowski/AP Images New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso won his second Home Run Derby on Monday. He has made $2 million for winning it in 2019 and 2021. During that span, he has made $1.47 million total with the Mets. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Two nights of home-run hitting have proven more lucrative for Pete Alonso than three seasons with the New York Mets. On Monday, Alonso won the Home Run Derby for a second time, defending his 2019 title (the event was canceled in 2020).  In the process, the Mets first baseman won $1 million for his 74 home runs. Alonso also took home $1 million for his win in 2019. That $2 million in winnings is more than he's made with the Mets over that same span. According to Spotrac, from 2019-2021, Alonso has made $1.47 million with the Mets. His salary this season is worth over $676,000. Alonso only made $241,674 in 2020 because of the pandemic-shortened season. After Alonso won NL Rookie of the Year in 2019,...
    Conan O’Brien has ended his late-night run on TBS after more than 4,000 episodes. O’Brien reflected on his past 11 years on the show in its final episode Thursday night, thanking his staff and fans for joining him in the “crazy and seemingly pointless pursuit.” “I have devoted all of my adult life — all of it — to pursing this strange, phantom intersection between smart and stupid.” O’Brien said. “And there’s a lot of people that believed the two cannot co-exist. But god, I will tell you it is something I believe religiously. I think when smart, stupid come together, it’s very difficult but when you can make it happen, I believe it’s the most beautiful thing in the world,” he continued. Warner Media announced last month that “Conan” was set to end June 24 to begin focusing on O'Brien's new show on HBO Max. The past week of the show included guests Dana Carvey, Bill Hader, and Thursday’s guest Jack Black. The final episode included an “exit interview” between Conan and Homer Simpson, a nod to the comedian’s time...
    More than half of Earth's rivers and streams stop flowing periodically or run dry for part of the year, according to a new study. They can be found in all climates and continents, researchers said, and range from Himalayan snow-fed creeks and Saharan wadis to half-a-mile-wide rivers on the Indian sub-continent. Even the longest river in the world, the Nile, has parts that stop flowing from time to time. Scientists said climate change was partially to blame, along with the withdrawal of water for human and agricultural use.  Scroll down for video Water world: More than half of Earth's rivers and streams stop flowing periodically or run dry for part of the year, according to a new study. They are shown on this map above They said it had affected many former perennial streams and rivers, including the Nile, the Indus and the Colorado River.  'Given continued global climate and land use change, an increasingly large proportion of the global river network is expected to cease to flow seasonally over the coming decades,' said Bernhard Lehner, one of the study's...
    Former President Donald Trump still hasn't decided whether he'll attempt a 2024 presidential comeback but said he's taking into consideration what he claims is his growing popularity. Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday he believes he is drawing in more supporters due to the actions of the Biden administration on a number of issues, including immigration, climate change, and rising gasoline prices. MCCONNELL SEES NO TRUMP-INDUCED REPUBLICAN 'INFIGHTING' AHEAD IN 2022 PRIMARIES "We’ll be making a decision on 2024, but if you look at the numbers, people are liking me more than ever before, and I think the reason is they're watching what is happening with our country," Trump said. "And I guess it is making me very popular." Trump also said he would be active in endorsing more candidates in 2022 and beyond, insisting his approval is the best way to secure a victory for any GOP hopeful. This contrasts with President Joe Biden's comments on Monday, who said he believes his predecessor's hold over the Republican Party is causing the GOP to lose support....

    Lisa Rinna reacts to teen daughters romance with Scott Disick These energy stocks are expected by Wall Street to rise up to 37% over the next year The Boston Red Sox have been one of the most reliable teams for MLB bettors this season, especially as an underdog. The Red Sox have the fifth-best run line record in baseball at 25-19, but they have been prolific as an underdog. Entering Thursday night’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, the Red Sox are a remarkable 12-2 against the run line as an underdog. Boston is also 10-4 straight-up this season as an underdog with a 6-2 record as a road underdog.

    The Cincinnati Reds hit six home runs in Thursday night’s loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, but one fan lost even more trying to catch one of those homers for his son. Eugenio Suarez, 29, hit his first home run since April 10 to tie the game 4-4 in the sixth inning, and as he was rounding the bases, a Reds fan in the stands took a huge tumble trying to catch the ball for his kid. The man, who has been dubbed the “Nacho Man” by social media users, had a tray of cheesy chips in one hand while trying to catch the baseball in the other.  Just when he thought he had it, he didn’t. He tumbled two rows down trying to recover the ball but instead lost his nachos, his shoe and probably a little dignity. Another little boy capitalized on the cringeworthy moment and got a hold of Suarez’s homer.  The story does have a silver lining — the viral moment was seen by the wife of Reds relief pitched Lucas Sims, who took to Twitter to find “Nacho Man” so they...
    In this article FB SNAP VIDEO2:2802:28Trading Nation: Social media stocks are seeing a split, here's how to trade the namesTrading NationFacebook or Snap? This week analyst firm Wedbush breathed new life into the rivalry, downgrading Facebook on concerns around Apple's new privacy measures and upgrading Snap with a nod to its innovative platform and younger customer base. Two market analysts would take the other side of the trade, they told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Wednesday. "I am friending Facebook and I would block Snap here," said Delano Saporu, founder and CEO of New Street Advisors Group. "I think we're going to see ad revenue stay where it is, at least be maintained and obviously grow, but there's also a way for Facebook and a lot of these social media platforms to grow and diversify revenue." Saporu cited Facebook's tests with Instagram badges, which users can buy to support creators on the platform. "You're going to see social media platforms getting revenue from this as being the middle person," he said. "So, I think there's still room to grow for...
