    US basketball star Brittney Griner's wife has called the situation 'really difficult' ahead of Griner's trial in Russia for possession of narcotics after she was found with a vape cartridge containing hashish oil in February.  Griner's wife Cherelle spoke about Griner's detention to CNN and said it is 'not a situation where the rhetoric is matching the actions.'  She said she does not think the 'maximum amount of effort' is being put forward to get Griner home. Reports indicate that Griner's fate in court is linked to notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, who earned the nickname 'Merchant of Death' after selling weapons around the world. Bout is currently serving a 25-year federal prison sentence in the US, and Russian officials have indicated they want him returned to Russia. It appears that Griner's arrest may be an effort by the Russian government to force the US to exchange Bout for Griner. WNBA star Brittney Griner appears in her first day of Russian court after being detained for having a vape cartridge containing hashish in February Prosecutors said Griner is being...

    Joe Biden's new 'disinformation czar' dismissed concerns about Critical Race Theory in schools as 'disinformation for profit', despite parents across the country being worried about the teaching of the philosophy in their children's classrooms. Nina Jankowicz, a disinformation expert who has worked throughout Eastern Europe, was hired on April 27 to lead a Homeland Security Department working group designed to help its different agencies in dealing with disinformation, looking at topics ranging from migration to plots from Russia and Iran. But her appointment has angered Republicans. The Republican National Committee dubbed the committee she heads 'Ministry of Truth' in a nod to George Orwell's novel '1984' and couched disinformation as 'any speech we don't like.' Other critics have seized upon her past comments - noting that she described Hunter Biden's laptop as 'the laptop from hell', and echoed the opinion of national security experts at the time that the laptop was part of a Russian influence operation. It has since been accepted as authentic. On Wednesday, a clip from a November 2021 address to The City Club of Cleveland was...
    Joe Biden has been blocked from winding down the Trump-era Title 42 migrant expulsion policy by a federal judge over fears it is already being ignored and causing a border-crossing surge.  US District Judge Robert Summerhays of Lafayette in Louisiana, made the ruling on Wednesday.  It bars the Biden administration from beginning to wind-down Title 42 ahead of its planned May 23 conclusion, but doesn't stop the policy being axed on that date.  Summerhays - a Trump appointee - is now set to hold a second hearing that could stop Biden from halting the policy too.  'The states have established a substantial threat of immediate and irreparable injury resulting from the early implementation of Title 42, including unrecoverable costs on healthcare, law enforcement, detention, education, and other services for migrants,' he wrote.  'The states have established a substantial threat of immediate and irreparable injury resulting from the early implementation of Title 42, including unrecoverable costs on healthcare, law enforcement, detention, education, and other services for migrants,' wrote Trump-appointed U.S. District Judge Robert Summerhays in Lafayette, Louisiana Summerhays said states were...

The European champions have been banned from selling home and away match tickets as a result of owner Roman Abramovich being sanctioned by the UK government. 2Chelsea believe the licence they're currently operating under will be loosenedCredit: GETTY 2The expectation is that new ticket sales will be permitted as long as the money raised is kept away from funds Abramovich can accessCredit: GETTY The Russian had his assets frozen due to his ties with president Vladimir Putin, who ordered the invasion of neighbouring Ukraine.

    A Russian journalist who hijacked prime-time TV news to denounce the war in Ukraine walked free from court last night – but could still face up to 15 years behind bars. Marina Ovsyannikova, 43, was labelled the 'bravest woman on TV' after she stormed on to the set of state-controlled Channel One waving an anti-war sign on Monday evening. A highly regarded editor at the channel, the mother-of-two held a placard reading 'Stop the war. Don't believe propaganda. They're lying to you' live on air before releasing a pre-recorded video statement calling on ordinary Russians to protest and 'stop the madness'. Miss Ovsyannikova's exceptional act of defiance against Vladimir Putin quickly went viral, winning praise from world leaders and sparking calls for her to be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. But once she was arrested, there were fears she would disappear, as many critics of the Kremlin do. Her lawyer said he could not make contact with the journalist or find her at the notorious police station she was said to be held in, raising concerns for her safety....
    Thousands of Russians are trying to dodge conscription into their army by fleeing to the US via Mexico to claim asylum, immigration lawyers have claimed. Many are afraid Russia's invasion of Ukraine will leave Putin wanting more people to join up to bolster his troops. Ukraine has already banned men aged 18 to 60 from leaving the country in a bid to guarantee the country's 'defence and the organisation of timely mobilisation' and many Russians are escaping before their homeland takes similar steps. The number of Russians stopped from crossing over from Mexico to the US has rocketed in the last few months. Dmitry Politov, 29, (pictured) from Moscow, supported Navalny and fled to the US from Russia to claim political asylum Only 467 Russians were stopped at the US-Mexico border in 2020 but after Russian dissident Alexei Navalny's arrest, that figure jumped to 9,376 for 2021 An armed Russian soldier at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant yesterday Ekaterina Mouratova, a Russian-American immigration lawyer based in Miami, said the number of Russians hoping to claim asylum would 'skyrocket'.

    Ekaterina Pereverzeva is struggling to stop fears of war tormenting her as vast numbers of Russian forces mass across the border near her home in Ukraine's second city. 'Any time could be the last peaceful moment,' she said as we talk in a bar. 'We could be sitting here with a drink as the shelling starts, unaware that people I love might be dying.' The 27-year-old tries not to think about the gathering storm clouds – but she knows all too well how life, families and friendships can be instantly shattered by malevolent Russian president Vladimir Putin. For she was forced to leave another Ukrainian city after it was seized by Kremlin stooges – and is terrified history will repeat itself after she has worked so hard to create a new life in Kharkiv. 'I try not to think these thoughts, to calm my fears, to carry on living,' says Ekaterina, who set up an arts and human rights website after fleeing Donetsk.

    Russian troops engaged in a frenzy of 'exercises' on the Ukrainian border yesterday hours after Vladimir Putin told US and NATO to 'go to hell', stoking fears of an invasion.  The drills come amid claims 'mass grave' sties, each capable of accommodating 100 bodies, are being prepared along the Ukrainian border ahead of a possible invasion by Russian forces.   Moscow has for weeks been massing tens of thousands of troops, tanks and artillery pieces along its eastern flank, sparking fears of an invasion, though the Kremlin has insisted it is merely a defence force.  More than 1,000 troops were involved in firing exercises in five regions yesterday while tanks conducted mobile defence drills involving 500 soldiers and Sukhoi Su-27SM3 fighter jets practiced challenging warships.  It came hours after Putin, speaking at his annual end-of-year press conference yesterday, accused NATO and the US of planning to deploy hypersonic missiles -  which have not yet been successfully developed - to Ukraine. The Russian strongman blamed NATO's militarisation of former Soviet states, such as Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, since the end of the Cold...

    Many congressional Democrats are increasingly fleeing the shadow of their party's leader, President Biden, while the United States continues to socioeconomically falter under his leadership amid anxiety over a possible 2010-like Republican wave in the quickly approaching 2022 midterms. The panel on "The Five" discussed how Biden's ineffective and unpopular leadership is becoming even more of a drag on a fractured Democratic Party. One notable Democrat, Maine Rep. Jared Golden – who holds a seat in an expansive, mostly rural district with a Cook PVI of Republican+6 – said he is not concerned with Biden's popularity because he is personally eclipsing the president by 30 points in his region.

    PREMIER LEAGUE games are at real risk of being called off after Mateo Kovacic became the latest player to test positive for coronavirus. On Tuesday, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Kovacic has tested positive for coronavirus having only just returned to training.

In the latest figures, the Premier League reported their were 12 positive tests last week - the highest since the week of August 16-22, when there were 16.

    Nurses have whiplash after they are face scrutiny from their families and employers for refusing the vaccine just months after they were showered with praise for risking their health while working through the COVID-19 pandemic.   'A year ago I was a hero, and now I'm being treated like scum,' said Becca Pitt, a 21-year-old nursing assistant in Indiana who intends to fall pregnant within three years and holds fears about the vaccine's potential effects on her fertility - 'we don't know the side effects.' She and two other nurses, one who questions the speed at which the vaccine was produced and another who worries that the jab will affect the quality of her breastmilk, spoke frankly with Suzy Weiss about their recasting as villains since the vaccine became available.  All of them recalled falling ill with COVID during a period where most were quarantining at home while they were deemed 'essential,' and some pointed out the 'absurdity' of being forced to vaccinate when natural immunity is 27 times more effective than vaccinated immunity in preventing COVID infection, according to the largest...
    Tennis champ Novak Djokovic insists the fear of getting caught on a Covid-infected plane is the prime reason he's not yet committing to the Australian Open. Djokovic, 34, is said to be vaccine hesitant after previous outspoken comments about the disease although he has never revealed his vaccination status.  But the world number one says he can't face spending 14 days in hotel quarantine just because someone else on his aircraft might potentially test Covid-positive.  'The main problem is that if you're on a plane with a person who is positive, whether they're vaccinated or not, you automatically stay in your room for 14 days,' he said.

    THE Covid booster programme - the key part of the Government’s plan to prevent a new wave this winter - is moving too slow, experts fear.  It could spell trouble for hospitalisation and death rates, putting pressure on ministers to impose restrictions yet again. 2There are concerns the booster campaign is too slow. Pictured: Social worker Melody Howard receives her third shot at Midland House in DerbyCredit: LNP Boosters are being used to bolster immunity in the most vulnerable of society, who got their jabs several months ago. The third shots are the heart of the Government’s plan A for Covid during winter. But data show the majority of at-risk people have not yet had their additional jab, and may not for several more weeks or months into the winter.

It means only those who got their second dose in mid-April or earlier are being invited at the moment. Around...

New England’s coaching staff has noticed the dip in confidence and it has apparently led to a decrease in aggressiveness.Patriots RB Coach Ivan Fears Calls Out Rhamondre StevensonAccording to Patriots RB coach Ivan Fears, rookie Rhamondre Stevenson, who had found himself in Bill Belichick’s doghouse for a fumble in Week 1, was “too cautious” early in his Week 5 appearance.

    The Cleveland Clinic will no longer offer organ transplants to people unvaccinated against COVID-19 due to concerns patients could be at a high risk of contracting the virus. The hospital says the reason for the policy change is the immunosuppressant drugs transplant recipients must take after receiving a new organ so their body does not reject it. Unvaccinated people will also no longer be able to become a living organ donor over fears Covid may be able to transmit through the procedure. The move comes days after University of Colorado Health (UCHealth) in Aurora, made headlines for implementing a similar policy and denying a woman an opportunity to receive a new kidney after she refused the vaccine.  The Cleveland Clinic (pictured) will now require people to be vaccinated in order to receive an organ transplant or become a live donor. This is because recipients must take immunosuppressant medication following the receival of a new organ, leaving them vulnerable to the virus 'The health and safety of our patients is our top priority,' Cleveland Clinic wrote in a statement sent to...

    A New Jersey man has been charged with murder just two days after being released from prison through a state effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in detention facilities, authorities said. Jerry Crawford, 25, a convicted burglar, was released on Nov. 4 on public health emergency credits to mandatory parole supervision, the New Jersey Department of Corrections told the Washington Examiner. 20% OF PEOPLE SAY THEY LOST FRIENDS OVER COVID-19 DISAGREEMENTS: POLL "Without the Public Health Emergency Credits he would have been released on 12/24/2020," the NJDOC said.

    An off-the-grid New Hampshire man's days living as a hermit appear to be over.  'River Dave,' whose cabin in the woods burned down after nearly three decades on property where he had been squatting, says he doesn't think he can return to his solitary lifestyle. 'I don't see how I can go back to being a hermit because society is not going to allow it,' David Lidstone said in an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday. Lidstone, 81, said even if he could rebuild his cabin, which burned down last week, 'I would have people coming every weekend, so I just can't get out of society anymore. I've hidden too many years and I've built relationships, and those relationships have continued to expand.' David Lidstone, 81, seen without his hat says it would be impossible for him to go back to his previous lifestyle after his shack was burnt to the ground This undated photo provided by Jodie Gedeon shows the shack that David Lidstone, 81, has built and lived in for nearly three decades in the...
    The state mortuary is overflowing in the Namibian capital of Windhoek.  Corpses stacked three-deep in refrigeration units have to be rotated each day with those piled in the corridors, at room temperature. Horrifying footage has circulated on social media of staff lugging leaking body bags like so many sacks of rotten potatoes. The south-west African country is in the grip of the Delta variant-driven third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.  The healthcare system, such as it was, has folded under the onslaught. The country now has the second highest per capita Covid-19 mortality rate in the world, after Tunisia. If you are a middle-aged or elderly Namibian with an underlying health problem and have caught the virus, you are in the hands of providence.  The hospitals will not take you. They have to carry out a brutal triage.  Pharmacist Netti Pitsche told the Mail that not even her extensive network of contacts in the local medical profession could prevent her from losing both her parents in the space of two weeks. When her 75-year-old father contracted the virus and his blood...
    Alexandria Ocasio-Ortez has come under fire for saying there was 'hysteria' across the United States over the surging violent crime rates, including a 64 percent spike in shootings in her native New York.  The New York congresswoman made the comment on Sunday while discussing concerns of the rising crime wave across the country.  'We are seeing these headlines about percentage increases,' Ocasio-Cortez said during the Zoom meeting with New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman. 'Now, I want to say that any amount of harm is unacceptable and too much, but I also want to make sure that this hysteria, you know, that this doesn't drive a hysteria and that we look at these numbers in context so that we can make responsible decisions about what to allocate in that context.'   Alexandria Ocasio-Ortez made the 'hysteria' comment on Sunday while discussing concerns of the rising crime wave across the country Shootings have increased more than 60 percent in New York City compared to last year, according to data from the National Fraternal Order of Police.

    TYSON FURY has jokingly claimed his dad's outlandish 'conspiracy theory' about his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder potentially being fixed could be true.

"Because at the minute, the American boxing fraternity has been embarrassed by the last escapade.

Alex Saab, the Colombian businessman who's also said to be a 'financier' and 'front man' of embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, told CNN in an exclusive interview from his detention site in Cape Verde that he has no doubts about what will happen to him if sent to America."If I'm extradited to the United States, every independent expert is categoric: I will be exposed to forced interrogation techniques, to torture, poor treatment, an unfair trial, inhuman detention conditions and cruel punishments," he said in a handwritten letter, answering questions sent by CNN, through his lawyers in Cape Verde."Apart from that, I have faith in God and I know He'll give me the strength to win," he also said, in what is his first interview since he was arrested a year ago. Saab was detained on June 12, 2020 when he was flying back to Venezuela from a trip to Iran. His jet stopped in...

    A FORMER US Navy fighter pilot who witnessed the ‘Tic Tac’ UFOs has said her other fliers kept quiet for fear of being labelled kooky. Lt. Commander Alex Dietrich was training with a strike group approximately 100 miles southwest of San Diego when she and another pilot spotted the mysterious object. 4Tic-tac like objects were recorded on video on the planesCredit: CNN 4Alex Dietrich has now spoken out about the encounterCredit: CNN Along with fellow former pilot Commander Dave Fravor, who was also on the training mission, she has now been speaking about the encounter. Videos of the encounter, along with another one over Florida, were first released by the Pentagon in 2020. Dietrich told CBS’s ‘60 Minutes’ fighter pilots had struggled with how much to reveal about the encounter as the descriptions sounded “crazy”. “Over beers we've said, 'Hey man, if I saw this solo, I don't know that I would have come back and said anything,'' Dietrich said during the interview.  “Because it sounds so crazy when I say it.” Favor and Dietrich were each flying F/A-18F fighter aircraft when...
    A former fighter pilot who saw Tic Tac-shaped UFOs in 2004 says her Navy colleagues stayed quiet for fear of being labeled 'kooky'. Mother-of-three Alex Dietrich, 41, says she feels a 'duty' to speak up about her close encounter with unidentified aerial phenomena because she sees it as a vital matter of national security. Dietrich appeared on a recent 60 Minutes special on unexplained aerial phenomena and also speaks regularly to House and Senate enquiries into UFOs, and says military pilots fear the stigma of being associated with UFOs. 'I do feel a duty and obligation,' the former Lt. Cmdr. told the Washington Post when asked why she was open to talking about her experiences, unlike many of her former colleagues. 'I was in a taxpayer-funded aircraft, doing my job as a military officer,' she told the Post.  'Citizens have questions. It's not classified. If I can share or help give a reasonable response, I will.' The Director of National Intelligence and other agencies is due to release a highly-anticipated report on UFOs to Congress next month. Former fighter pilot Alex...

    Passengers could be weighed before they get on jets because Americans are getting fatter and the FAA is concerned aircraft may be overloaded. Airline carriers are tasked with calculating the weight and balance of their aircraft to ensure its within allowable limits for the safety of the plane.  Increasing obesity rates in the United States, however, dictate that the standard numbers used by the airline industry to average out passenger weight is likely outdated and therefore, unsafe to use. Weighing select passengers at airports would establish a more accurate number for average passenger weight so the number of seats available on flights can be adjusted accordingly. The FAA sent out a circular two years ago addressing issues of weight and balance for aircrafts. Advisory circulars are not binding law, but they do set de facto standards for the airline industry, which could start adhering to the standards soon. View from the Wing reports that the point of time for potential final action from the FAA has arrived after a public comment period closed last spring.  Monitoring weight and balance for safety...
