    (CNN)It's the fuel that powers performance -- few things are as important to an elite athlete as their diet.Eating the right nutrients is critical to success, but so is the odd indulgent meal to keep spirits high through grueling training sessions. And as the Winter Olympics comes to an end, a new cookbook provides a glimpse into what makes top athletes tick.The Winning Recipes cookbook is the idea of the Purple Project, an organization that looks to support domestic abuse survivors, which has worked over the past year to create a gastronomic tome made up of the favorite recipes from some of the US' best Olympic athletes. "The Purple Project reached out to me out of the blue," retired Olympic skier Noah Hoffman, who was invited to take part, told CNN Sport. Read More"At first, I thought, 'That's a little strange, I'm not a chef. I don't know if I can contribute to a cookbook.' "But, of course, I love to cook. I think everybody loves to eat and I love to eat, and I have favorite recipes. "I actually...
    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich wrote in a Fox News op-ed that as challenges like inflation and the supply chain disruptions continue to plague America, the new year provides hope and serves as a reminder that change is possible. On "Fox & Friends" Monday, he said America is battered and that people are beginning to sense the country's best days have passed, but that Rep. Kevin McCarthy understands those challenges and has committed to bettering the nation. GOP HOUSE LEADERSHIP HAS A NEW YEAR'S MESSAGE FOR PELOSI: ‘LAME DUCK SPEAKER’  NEWT GINGRICH: We have to face the reality here. This isn't 2016. This isn't a country which is basically comfortable but angry. This is a country which is battered, frightened. For the first time, Americans have a really deep sense that our best days are behind us. Well, we're very intimidated by the scale of the Chinese challenge. And as I said, we have mental health problems on a scale we have never seen, largely compounded by the worst public health decisions, I think, in modern history. All of which...
    Despite having the highest vaccination rate in the country, Vermont has been dealing with a dramatic increase of COVID-19 cases. Infections have risen by 55 percent over the last two weeks to an average of about 300 per day, according to a recent report from the state's Department of Financial Regulation. Yet 80.9 percent of the state's total population has had at least one dose - second only to Massachusetts - and 71.8 percent are fully vaccinated, higher than anywhere else, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). So why is The Green Mountain State facing its worst Covid surge? Experts say there are a few reasons for this including low vaccination rates among younger people, college students gathering unmasked for Halloween parties, and not enough residents with natural immunity.  Vermont is the most vaccinated state in the nation with 80.9% of the population with one dose and 71.8% fully vaccinated but cases are surging (file image) A new report finds that Covid cases have risen 55% over the last two weeks to an average...
    California's Los Angeles and Long Beach ports in San Pedro Bay - which move about 40 percent of shipped cargo entering the U.S. - are ranked among the worst in the world, falling behind third-world countries such as Kenya and Ghana. The Los Angeles port ranked 328 of the 351 ports listed in the World Bank and IHS Markit’s 2020 Container Port Performance Index. Its grade was worse than the port in Lome, Togo, which is among the world’s poorest countries. Long Beach’s port faired even worse, landing at the 333rd spot a few places behind Kenya’s Mombasa port. Both ports slide below the ranking of the Ghana's Tema port, listed in the 261st spot.  The poor rankings come as massive backlogs continue to disrupt the supply chain ahead of the holidays and threaten to continue the logjam into the 2022, and thousands of freight containers sit idly on more than 100 vessels that simply don't have anywhere to unload. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden said Thursday he is considering sending in the National Guard to alleviate supply chain issues and drive...
    Washington (CNN)The Russian hackers behind a successful 2020 breach of US federal agencies have in recent months tried to infiltrate US and European government networks, cybersecurity analysts tracking the group told CNN. The Russian group has breached multiple technology firms in previously unreported activity, said Charles Carmakal, senior vice president and CTO at cybersecurity firm Mandiant. The hackers have also used new tools and techniques in some of their operations this year, Carmakal said. "The group has compromised multiple government entities, organizations that focus on political and foreign policy matters, and technology providers that provide direct or indirect access to the ultimate target organizations within North America and Europe," Carmakal told CNN. He declined to identify the technology providers.It's unclear what data, if any, the hackers accessed. But the activity is a reminder of the challenge facing the Biden administration as it tries to blunt efforts by America's top digital adversaries to access sensitive government data. A US official familiar with the matter told CNN that federal agencies are tracking the latest actions of the Russian hackers. Read MoreTwo prolific...
    The terrorist bombing that killed at least 170 people outside Kabul Airport sent shockwaves all the way to the U.S., where Afghan immigrants have been left terrified for their loved ones struggling to flee the country after the Taliban seized control.  ‘My wife is in Kabul right now and she was supposed to go to the airport yesterday,’ Ziatulla, a 43-year-old Uber driver from Fresh Meadows, Queens, where hundreds of Afghans have made their home, told DailyMail.com on Friday. ‘They told her to go home and wait.’ 'I worry so much.

    The Aston Martin DBX seen at Salon Prive, held at Blenheim Palace, September 25, 2020 in the United Kingdom.Martyn Lucy | Getty Images Aston Martin Executive Chairman Lawrence Stroll said the company is set to produce 10,000 vehicles a year by 2025, adding that the company's "risks are behind us." The Canadian billionaire told CNBC he invested $1 billion in Aston Martin and its Formula 1 team and is confident his turnaround plan is paying off. "I have delivered on every single thing I said to the public since the day I became executive chairman and far surpassed what I promised," Stroll said in an interview. "The risks are behind us. We have tremendous growth in front of us and a Formula 1 team to market it." A consortium of investors led by Stroll took a 16.7% stake in Aston in early 2020, right before the pandemic shut much of the world down.  He increased his investment to 25% of the company in March, injecting another $25 million. Stroll also brought his own Formula 1 team to Aston Martin...
    U.S. veterans in the D.C. area who run a nonprofit have shifted their efforts to helping at-risk Afghans get to safety after the Taliban took over Kabul. “We shifted to supporting the larger international effort to remain in contact with all at-risk Afghans who are attempting to flee Afghanistan to safety,” said Mariah Smith, of Winchester, Virginia, who serves on the board of directors for No One Left Behind. The organization has been purchasing commercial tickets for Afghans who had their special immigrant visas to fly to the U.S. But after the Taliban moved into Kabul, they changed their focus. “We’re positioned to support evacuation efforts out of Kabul,” Smith said. Afghan and Iraqi interpreters are promised that if they serve the U.S. military for two years, they can get visas along with their families to come to the U.S. “Taking action and saving as many Afghans as we can, is the honorable way forward,” Smith said. John Dolan, of Maryland, is also on the board of directors and is a former Infantry and Special Operations Officer with three deployments...
    THE US has a hidden agenda in its sudden push for disclosure on UFOs as the 180 day deadline for a government report on the subject looms, a world leading investigator has claimed. Nick Pope, a former UFO investigator for the UK's Ministry of Defence, told The Sun Online the world may never know why the Pentagon has done a U-turn after decades of denial on unidentified phenomena. 6Nick Pope is a former British official who investigated UFOs for the Ministry of DefenceCredit: Chris Loomis Photography US intelligence services officially closed the book on the controversial issue in 1969 at the conclusion Project Blue Book - which stated there was nothing to see regarding UFOs. However, in the last three years there has been an abrupt turnaround as the Pentagon took the unprecedented steps of releasing three stunning UFO videos filmed by the US Navy. And it also confirmed the existence of its secretive UFO investigation unit, before the Senate then commissioned a report on the issue from US intelligence which is due for release next month.

    Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb warned that the United States is behind on its rollout of the coronavirus vaccine, and each passing day makes the delay worse. Gottlieb said Monday on CNBC that he expects the backlog to grow more from the 35 million vaccines already in the stockpile at the moment. "There's 35 million vaccines sitting on a shelf right now," Gottlieb said. "We know 50 million vaccines are going to become available in the month of January, so we're stockpiling as many as maybe two vaccines a day on top of the 35 million, and you know, the federal government is applauding themselves because they managed to vaccinate half a million people a day in the last three days. You're still building up an inventory each day, and a substantial inventory, so we are way behind." "There's 35 million vaccines sitting on a shelf right now...we are way behind," says @ScottGottliebMD on COVID-19 vaccine rollout. https://t.co/1Pmj1ZeLxZ pic.twitter.com/wq7OvxFXAO— CNBC (@CNBC) January 4, 2021 Vaccine rollout began last month, first going to healthcare workers and then...

    President-elect Joe Biden spoke frankly in a rare address on the bleak reality of COVID-19 in the U.S., telling Americans "Our darkest days…are ahead of us, not behind us," during remarks on Tuesday.  "One thing I promise you about my leadership during this crisis: I'm going to tell it to you straight. I'm going to tell you the truth. And here's the simple truth: Our darkest days in the battle against COVID are ahead of us, not behind us," Biden said. The president-elect said that even with the first round of vaccine distribution underway, the virus remains a threat and the death rate, hovering around 3,000 Americans a day, is not expected to decrease any time soon.

    U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday said this week’s cyber attack -- dubbed by one U.S. official as "the worst hacking case in the history of America" -- was "pretty clearly" the work of Russians. Pompeo made the comments during an interview on the Mark Levin Show, effectively making him the first Trump administration official to publicly link the attack on U.S. and other computer systems around the globe to the Kremlin. RUSSIA'S ALLEGED HACK OF US GOVERNMENT: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW "[T]here was a significant effort to use a piece of third-party software to essentially embed code inside of U.S. Government systems and now it appears systems of private companies and companies and governments across the world as well," Pompeo said. "This was a very significant effort, and I think it’s the case that now we can say pretty clearly that it was the Russians that engaged in this activity."

    (CNN)As the US nears an average of 200,000 Covid-19 cases a day, experts say "behavior and cold weather" are behind the current surge gripping American communities.

    Journalist Carl Bernstein is reminding us all that he owes Senate Republicans nothing, least of all protection as they cower in public and let President Donald Trump make a mockery of our democracy. Bernstein tweeted Sunday: “I'm not violating any pledge of journalistic confidentially in reporting this: 21 Republican Sens–in convos w/ colleagues, staff members, lobbyists, W. House aides–have repeatedly expressed extreme contempt for Trump & his fitness to be POTUS.” They represent almost 40% of the 53 Senate Republicans. “With few exceptions, their craven public silence has helped enable Trump’s most grievous conduct—including undermining and discrediting the US the electoral system,” Bernstein tweeted.  He listed senators: Rob Portman, of Ohio; Lamar Alexander, of Tennessee; Ben Sasse, of Nebraska; Roy Blunt, of Missouri; Susan Collins, of Maine; Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska; John Cornyn, of Texas; John Thune, of South Dakota; Mitt Romney, of Utah; Mike Braun, of Indiana; Todd Young, of Indiana; Tim Scott, of South Carolina; Rick Scott, of Florida; Marco Rubio, of Florida; Chuck Grassley, of Iowa; Richard Burr, of North Carolina; Pat Toomey, of Pennsylvania; Martha McSally, of...
    US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo admitted Tuesday that the hoped-for progress in negotiations with nuclear-armed North Korea has not materialized, but talks are ongoing. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un held three high-profile meetings starting in June 2018, after an uptick in tensions at the start of Trump’s term. But nothing concrete emerged in terms of Pyongyang’s denuclearization, and talks have been officially at a standstill for months. “We did have hopes that we could make further progress, that Chairman Kim would go in a different direction, but I’m still optimistic,” Pompeo said at a think tank roundtable in Washington. “It’s gone quiet publicly, but there’s still lots of work going on… between ourselves and our allies in the region, the Japanese, the South Koreans, and even efforts with the North Koreans to come to understand where there may be opportunity as time goes on.” Trump nevertheless continues to portray his close relationship with Kim as one of his foreign policy achievements. fff/sst/to
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States has been here before, staring into the deep chasm that divides white and black Americans. It happened after cities burned in 1967, after Los Angeles erupted with the 1992 acquittal of police officers who beat Rodney King, after the 2014 police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. After those upheavals came talk of change — of reforming policing, yes, but also of expanding economic opportunity to black Americans who have been disproportionately left behind in one of the world’s richest countries. Yet despite big pledges and high hopes, economic progress has come slowly, if at all, for black America. African Americans still earn barely 60 cents for every $1 in white income. They have 10 cents in wealth for every $1 whites own. They remain more than twice as likely to live in poverty. And they’re about as likely to own a home as they were when Richard Nixon was president. Now, demonstrators are out in the streets again, this time to protest what happened in Minneapolis to George Floyd, dead after...
    After 70 years, the children of one missing Korean War airman have not given up on America's promise to its service members and their father -- to leave no one behind. In 1952, Air Force Lt. Hal Downes, a navigator and radar operator, was shot down over North Korea. His body was never recovered. His son, Richard Downes, was three years old when his father was lost. "We have to guard against the official rhetoric," Downes told correspondent Lara Logan on her Fox Nation show "Lara Logan Has No Agenda." "They say no man left behind, but we've left many behind and for decades." LIMITED TIME OFFER, GET YOUR FIRST MONTH OF FOX NATION FOR $0.99 Downes is president and executive director of the Coalition of Families of Korean & Cold War POW/MIAs. While he is realistic about the nature of America's duty to its service members, he also works with the U.S. government to try and determine the fate of missing troops. "[Downes] and his sister have fought for decades on behalf of all the families waiting to bury their dead," narrated Logan, "holding the U.S. to its commitment to leave no man behind. Etched into...
