    (CNN)For the dozens of people who were seeking care at an Oklahoma medical facility on Wednesday, it was a regular afternoon that turned into a nightmare within minutes when a gunman opened fire. About three hours earlier, Michael Louis had purchased an AR-15-style rifle, and he used the weapon to unleash a horrifying attack at Tulsa's Saint Francis Hospital -- killing four people before turning the weapon on himself. Gunman who killed 4 at Oklahoma medical building had been a patient of a victim, police chief saysWitnesses described the explosion of panic and terror as the shooting unfolded just after 4:50 p.m. local time."Police were everywhere in the parking lot, up and down the surrounding blocks," said Debra Proctor, who was in another building on the campus for an appointment when she heard the sirens.Kalen Davis also saw police cars surrounding the building.

    Intuitive astrologer Rose Smith revealed how the flower blood moon would effect your star sign An astrologer has revealed how the flower blood moon will effect your star sign - and given tips on surviving Mercury retrograde unscathed. Intuitive astrologer Rose Smith told FEMAIL the full moon on May 16, which is partnered with an eclipse, will bring in emotional energy for everyone. And even though we won't see the effect of the eclipse in Australia the power will be felt, she explained. These feelings could be magnified because of Mercury retrograde which runs through until June 4. Mercury retrograde is infamous for making people feel unaligned or 'derailing plans' with technological glitches, miscommunications and problems with travel more likely to occur. 'This full moon eclipse is in Scorpio – the zodiac sign associated with intense emotional depth and passion - so it's going to be an extremely emotional time for many people, and we need to make sure our brains are in gear before acting,' she said. 'Authority figures may grate your sense of freedom, to the point where...
    The Queen has revealed that having Covid has left her ‘tired and exhausted’.   The 95-year-old monarch, who contracted the virus in February, made her admission in a video call with NHS staff and patients last week.  She told them: ‘It does leave one very tired and exhausted, doesn’t it? This horrible pandemic. It’s not a nice result.’  When Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen had tested positive at Windsor, it was said that she had ‘mild cold-like symptoms’.  While she had her weekly audience with the Prime Minister, she did not appear on scheduled video calls.  The Queen speaking to staff at the Royal London Hospital by video link Staff and patients spoke about the trials and tribulations of managing Covid with the Queen Sources told the Daily Mail the cancellations were made because she sounded ‘croaky’ and ‘full of cold’ and not because her condition had worsened. She also pulled out of the annual Commonwealth Day service, albeit more due to mobility problems.  However it seems that like many who have contracted Covid, the Queen – who is triple-jabbed and...
    Washington (CNN)Robert Mueller's prosecutors dropped yet another head-scratching signal in their latest court filing Tuesday that the special counsel investigation may be wrapping up -- or maybe it's not. Either way, they're very busy.Senior appellate litigator Michael Dreeben told a federal judge on Tuesday that he and his co-counsel "face the press of other work" and would like a deadline extension this week in response to a request to unseal court documents in Paul Manafort's now-wrapped criminal case. RELATED: Rosenstein staying on at Justice Department 'a little longer' than anticipatedDreeben is working with Adam Jed, a more junior appellate lawyer on Mueller's team, to respond to the request from The Washington Post. The newspaper first approached the federal court in Washington on March 7 asking for the unsealing of Manafort documents related to his breach of plea proceedings. Its request came the same day Manafort learned his first of two prison sentences, which together totaled about 7.5 years.Read MoreOn Tuesday, Dreeben and Jed asked federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who oversaw Manafort's foreign lobbying-related case and his plea, to move...
    A vegan restaurant is Washington, D.C. is going viral for its delightful dessert descriptions, which don't actually say anything about the recipes' contents but rather give the owner's honest opinion on each dish. BDG’s Ghicken Vegan, in northeast D.C.'s Edgewood neighborhood, doesn't have any social media pages of its own, but it's currently earning quite a bit of attention on Twitter. There, a screenshot from a delivery app is making the rounds, showing the restaurants unusual descriptions for each of its dessert offerings — which range from enthusiastic to lukewarm.

    Cramer: This is the 'best thing I’ve read on crypto' and it makes me 'very worried'
    Even by the crass standards of the BBC, there is something supremely ironic for it to broadcast a major two-part documentary about briefing wars between members of the Royal Family while the embers of the Martin Bashir affair are still glowing. And how counter-productive and foolish of the Corporation to refuse to let the Palace see tonight’s opening instalment, titled the Princess And The Press, before it is screened. Is it any wonder that courtiers are thinking ‘very carefully’ about future projects with the BBC where cooperation is essential, with next year’s Platinum Jubilee tributes to the Queen at the very top of the list? It is highly unusual for all three royal households, representing the Queen, the Prince of Wales and Prince William, to unite in a threat of a potential boycott of our national broadcaster but it demonstrates what is at stake. And it underlines a shared sense of collective anger at the programme.

    An unnamed New York City subway rider torn up OkCupid ads on the D train after claiming it was 'propaganda'  A fed up New York City subway rider ripped down suggestive OKCupid dating adverts in a display of fury where she questioned whether it was appropriate for children to view them.    'All of this is gross, all of this is gross,' the unidentified woman said as she crumbled the ad in her hands. 'For kids to be looking at this, is that okay?' she said.  'This is propaganda, it's affecting the next generation. I don't know why no one sees this, this is disgusting.'  The ads are a part of the OkCupid's inclusive 'real dating' campaign, promoting single New Yorkers to get back out there as the city reopens. Paired with suggestive photos and an array of sexual identifies, fetishes, and characteristics, the company stated: 'We celebrate you: every single one of you.'   A 'gross' celebration of love: She ripped the ads off the train walls before changing course and lecturing masked riders about 'government is against us' Divide and...

    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...
    Jordi Ribera and Raúl Entrrerríos spoke after the bronze medal won by the handball team at the 2020 Olympic Games
    08/08/2021 at 11:30 CEST . The American base Sue Bird, who obtained the fifth Olympic gold of his sports career by defeating Japan (90-75) in the final of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, said that it is a “very special” gold and once again confirmed that they have been his Latest Games. “It is very special, and I am very, very happy. And this is the last one, that no one asks more about it,” said the 40-year-old base, who along with his partner Diana Taurasi he has chained five of the last seven consecutive golds for the US team. “I can’t be happier, this is something very difficult, to get a gold medal, and without seeing anyone’s face, without fans, without family, but our team overcame all this, we never let ourselves fall, and finish with the gold around the neck is very special, “added the game director at the Saitama Super Arena.

    So who lives in a house like this? Come with me now as we go Through The Keyhole and survey the clues left for our grateful gaze by the birthday girl. Over here, a pile of identical white books, their spines carefully arranged in elegant symmetry. Over there, a vase of velvety white roses. On the table, a snowy block of energising quartz. And is that an Hermes throw I see draped on the chair? Or could the H be a clue for the HRH captured ‘by mistake’ (oh, how we laughed) juggling ineptly in the ‘yard’ outside her window, not quite the court jester, but then again not exactly not, either. Who knows, if he plays his cards right (and takes his shoes off) he might one day be allowed on to the seagrass, to take a nap alongside the snoozing beagle, to worship at those elegantly turned ankles. For this is the Queen in her Montecito castle and, I have to admit, it’s very impressive. Very enviable. And so very Meghan. Is that an Hermes throw I...
    Idan Abada Idan Abada is on a mission to democratize bitcoin mining. As far as he's concerned, minting new coin isn't just for the pros.  His message appears to be resonating with the masses.  Abada, who lives in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, posted a video of himself using free Starbucks electricity to run an $875 mini bitcoin mining rig. The post has since gone viral on TikTok, with 2.6 million views and counting.  The rig looks a whole lot different than a warehouse packed with rows of whirling ASICs – an image which has come to be synonymous with crypto mining.  Instead, Abada's miner is relatively simple: it consists of a multi-port USB hub, a mounted mini fan, and ten USB-sticks, each containing two Bitmain-manufactured ASIC mining chips.  "It's one of the easiest miners to set up and run, because all you need is a computer or a laptop," explained Abada. "It's powered by USB, and that's pretty much it. Everyone can become a miner and be a part of the crypto world."Computers in a warehouse near...
    SentinelOne Exceeds IPO Goal to Raise $1.2 Billion Cramers Mad Money Recap: Facebook, Merck, Nvidia © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad The Cowboys went only 6-10 last season in Mike McCarthy’s first season. It’s easy to dismiss that as an aberration because of Dak Prescott‘s season-ending ankle injury in Week 5. However, the Cowboys were only 1-3 in games Prescott started and finished, and the victory was a lucky comeback win over the Falcons. The Cowboys 2020 defense ended up allowing the most points in team history. Prescott is healthy as are starting offensive linemen Zack Martin, La'el Collins and Tyron Smith, the three of whom missed a combined 36 games. Is their good health — combined with an improved defense — enough for the Cowboys to contend for the division title if not the NFC title? Prescott thinks so. “Improvement, a lot of improvement obviously from last year to this year, but deeper than that from those first five games,” Prescott told Newy Scruggs of NBC DFW. “Take...
    The last time Minnesota state government was shut down as a result of budget brinkmanship, most of Minnesota state government didn’t shut down. It was 2011, and about 80 percent of government functions were considered essential during the 20-day shutdown and ordered funded by the Ramsey County district court, according to an after-action report written by Minnesota Management and Budget.  “Major health and human services programs, educational institutions, and local aid recipients all received continued state support,” reads the MMB report. “Additionally, direct state services were provided by corrections, public safety and state institutions. Other state institutions, such as the higher education system, had independent revenue sources and authorities that allowed them to continue to operate.”  And though 19,000 state workers were laid off and some services were delayed, it could have been far worse had the shutdown actually meant … shutting down the state government.  Article continues after advertisement The 2021 state Legislature is now working to put the details on a dozen spending bills lawmakers need to pass — and have Gov. Tim Walz sign — before a...
    (CNN)Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that it would be "very hard" to meet the 62,000 refugee cap pledged by President Joe Biden, arguing that the refugee system that was in place when the administration came in lacked "the means to effectively process as many people as we hoped." "I think what the President has and the White House has said today is that based on what we've now seen from in terms of the inheritance and being able to look at what was in place, what we could put in place, how quickly we could put it in place, it's going to be very hard to meet the 62,000 this fiscal year," Blinken told ABC News, adding that a Trump-era policy prohibition on refugees from the Middle East and Africa "has now been lifted," and refugees in the pipeline are now eligible to seek asylum in the US.Pressed on whether the administration would accept 125,000 refugees next year, Blinken replied: "Look, the President's been clear about where he wants to go, but we have to be, you know,...

    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) sparred with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum over the details of who recorded his phone call with President Donald Trump, but denied holding a “grudge” against anyone involved in the dispute. “Did you say OK, let’s release the audio of the phone call?” MacCallum asked Raffensperger in the Monday interview. “The information is out there,” the embattled elections chief replied. “It is what it is.” MacCallum pressed Raffensperger once more, saying, “That’s not an answer to my question. Are you going to answer my question? Were you aware of the decision and were you in favor of the decision the release the phone call, sir?” Raffensperger again demurred. “I think we had to respond to the president’s Twitter, and we responded with the facts that were in the call” he said. “So that’s how it got out there. The world can make up their own decisions, listen to the both sides. Both sides of the aisle, down the middle. Make their own decisions.” Advisers associated with Raffensperger leaked the call between Raffensperger, the president, and their respective teams to The...
    BOSTON (CBS) – The state of Massachusetts says a “nationwide unemployment scam” is the reason many people have seen their payments frozen. “They were having identification issues and needed three documents for identification,” Christopher Pynn of Lowell said he was told in late November after his unemployment account was placed under a hold. “I immediately filled it out,” Lucinda Rivera of Orlando, Florida, said. She works for a Massachusetts-based transportation company. “I submitted my passports, Social Security card.” Their story is the same — two people already receiving Massachusetts unemployment benefits since the pandemic took hold and took their jobs — now, unsure when they’ll get their next check. Christopher Pymm and Lucinda Rivera are just two people who have had their unemployment delayed. (WBZ-TV) Pynn typically works Warp & Weft, a restaurant and bar with live music and comedy performances. He’s had to collect unemployment on and off since March, as the restaurant closed, reopened, then hibernated for the winter. That was — until November 24, when he noticed his account was put on hold. “They were waiting for...
    Chris Christie on Tuesday said it is a 'fact' Joe Biden won the election before slamming pardoned General Michael Flynn for advocating martial law.  The Republican former governor of New Jersey told Fox News: 'I think this is a very, very dangerous thing that we're engaging in.' Donald Trump has made unsubstantiated claims of widespread electoral fraud and has been trying unsuccessfully to overturn the victory of Democrat Biden.  His campaign has challenged the outcome in court in multiple states while also pressing state officials, lawmakers and governors to throw the results out and declare Trump the winner.  But Christie, who again did not rule out running for president in 2024, said Tuesday: 'We've had promises from Sidney Powell and other members of the president's legal team for blockbuster evidence and none of it has come forward. 'And so, you know, I'm as disappointed as anybody that the president was not reelected in November, but the fact is Joe Biden won the majority of the electoral votes, he had 306, and I think this is a very, very dangerous thing that we...

    SergeI Torop got a rude awakening this week when the Russian secret police mounted a dawn raid on his home in a remote part of Siberia. Four helicopters and dozens of heavily armed troops in a fleet of vans and buses descended on the hamlet of Petropavlovka, 2,600 miles east of Moscow. Within minutes they had located their target and masked men in camouflage gear bundled the handcuffed Torop into a waiting chopper, as others with machine guns kept his associates at bay. The unusual aspect of the operation was that Torop, 59, was not a murderer, or an oligarch wanted for tax fraud, but a former traffic cop known as the 'Jesus of Siberia', whose Church Of The Last Testament was based in a settlement he had renamed City of Sun. SergeI Torop, 59, head of the Vissarion sect, greets his followers in the village of  Petropavlovka, 2,600 miles east of Moscow, in 2002 Usually seen in long, flowing robes reminiscent of the Messiah himself, Torop — who goes by the name of Vissarion — was clad, instead,...
    Joe Biden is taking his turn at the televised town hall thing Thursday night on CNN, and unlike Donald Trump earlier in the week, Biden is unlikely to respond to a woman mentioning her mother’s cancer death by attributing it to COVID-19. The former vice president is also unlikely to claim that the virus “is going away” because the U.S. will develop “herd mentality.” In short, Biden is going to do better than Trump as long as the grading is fair. Unfortunately, we all know that the two candidates’ performances will be graded on a curve to normalize Trump’s callousness, incoherence, and lies. (So many lies.) But Biden will once again show that he is sharper and more knowledgeable than the Trump campaign is working so hard to portray him as, showing yet again the major flaw in that strategy. As we’ve seen, voters often ask more substantive questions than professional journalists, so Biden may actually get to talk about some of his many substantive policies. Like his plan to impose a tax penalty on corporations that offshore jobs. Or his ideas for reopening schools...
    Royal experts have delivered their scathing verdicts on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's new explosive biography Finding Freedom.  The controversial new book written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand was released yesterday and raised eyebrows for its gushing praise and intimate knowledge of the Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 39. Royal expert Richard Kay said the biography 'not only fuels the suggestions that the couple either hand-fed these anecdotes – so precise and so private – to authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand themselves, or allowed others to do so on their behalf, it also invites the kind of intrusion they are so quick to deplore'.  Meanwhile other commentators have criticised the book for 'choking readers' with it's 'exhausting' and 'banal detail', and called it the 'pure and undiluted voice of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle'.  Royal commentators have delivered their scathing verdicts on the explosive new biography about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex  Richard Kay commented: 'The fact [the Duke and Duchess of Sussex] they have said nothing – beyond the routine denial that they had...

    Bradley Cortright June 18, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump says there is a bright spot to initially scheduling his upcoming campaign rally on June 19. Trump pushed the rally back one day amid criticism of his decision to hold a rally on Juneteenth, short for June 19, which is a day that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States, as IJR reported. But during an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump said, “I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous.” “It’s actually an important event, an important time. But nobody had ever heard of it,” he added. Trump also said he had asked confidants if they knew about Juneteenth, and he said they did not. Then he asked an aide if she had heard of it. The aide told the president that the White House had released a statement about Juneteenth last year. Trump responded, “Oh, really? We put out a statement? The Trump White House put out a statement? … OK, OK. Good.” When Trump first announced his campaign rally on June 19,...
    You may think he’s the one — but what do your eggs think? A new study has found that a woman’s eggs are especially selective when choosing the most ideal sperm for fertilization. Looking at leftover samples from 16 couples getting reproductive treatment, researchers from Sweden found that eggs release a chemical that attracts only certain types of sperm — regardless of whether they come from the woman’s chosen partner, according to the findings published Tuesday in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society. The selectiveness could be a way of sorting out the mate with the best genes, said study author John Fitzpatrick, an assistant professor in the department of zoology at Stockholm University in Sweden. “We expected to see some sort of partner effect, but in half of the cases the eggs were attracting more sperm from a random male,” he told CNN. “The most likely explanation for this is that these chemical signals allow females to choose males who are more genetically compatible.” see also Humans were born to be the fat primates, scientists say It’s a...
