    Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders on Tuesday joined the ever-growing list of Joe Biden allies who are shying away from encouraging the 79-year-old president to run for a second term. But Sanders, himself 81 years old, also insisted during a CBS Mornings interview that age limits were not necessary for holding elected office - while leaving the door open for his own chance to run again in 2024. 'That's his decision,' the self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist said when asked about Biden running for another White House term. 'Joe is a friend of mine, and I think against enormous opposition he has tried to do some very, very good things. He will make that decision himself.' Pressed for his opinion again, Sanders answered somewhat tersely: 'What do I think? That's his decision.' Host Nate Burleson asked, 'Do you plan to run again?' 'That's something, you know, I haven't made that decision,' Sanders replied.  'Right now, my focus - I'll be going around the country, dealing with trying to elect often young progressives, often young people of color, who are prepared to stand up...
    Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving's decision to go unvaccinated likely cost him in the range of $100 million, he told reporters at Monday's media day. The veteran point guard was rumored to be heading towards free agency in June after struggling to finalize a long-term extension in Brooklyn following the Nets' first-round playoff loss to the Boston Celtics. But instead of opting out of the final year an $36 million of his contract, Irving picked up his player option after finding the market for his services had deteriorated. 'I gave up four years, $100-something mil deciding to be unvaccinated,' he told reporters. 'That was the decision. It was contract [and] get vaccinated or be unvaccinated and there's a level of uncertainty of your future.' "I didn't appreciate how me being unvaccinated came to be a stigma within my career that I don't want to play, or that I'm willing to give up everything to be a voice for the voiceless."- Kyrie Irving pic.twitter.com/yE6E0GU03N— Nets Videos (@SNYNets) September 26, 2022 Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving's decision to go unvaccinated likely cost...

    A PSYCHOLOGIST has revealed the three factors that determine whether a Love Island couple will “stick or twist”. The Islanders are currently in the most dramatic week of the series, Casa Amor, in which their loyalties are put to the test. 3Jacques has been contemplating whether to get to know other girls. He is pictured with Mollie in the poolCredit: Eroteme 3Andrew was quick to jump ship and get cosy with CocoCredit: Eroteme 3The girls have been tempted by new men. But Gemma (left) and Ekin-Su (right) are yet to show interestCredit: Eroteme At the end, they’ll be asked if they want to stick with their original partner, or couple up with a newbie who they have been spending time with. With none of the couples in a serious committed relationship pre-Casa Amor, there is potential for a complete overhaul. Dr Veronica Lamarche, a senior lecturer in psychology at the University of Essex, says whether couples stay together comes down to the “investment model of relationships”. “This model helps explain whether people are going to ‘stick or twist’ in their...
    Former President Bill Clinton told James Cordon he sent federal agents to Area 51 to find out if aliens were hiding there.  Clinton, 75, joined Cordon, 43, on his show on Wednesday evening, revealing he and his former Chief of Staff John Podesta, sent a team to the classified military base. 'When I was president, and I had a Chief of Staff John Podesta - he loved science fiction - he made every attempt to find out everything about Roswell. And we also sent people to Area 51, we wanted to make sure there were no aliens.'  When Cordon excitedly asked the former president who exactly he sent to the coveted area, he grabbed the late-night host's shoulder and said: 'Oh, if I told you that.'  However, Clinton ended up revealing that, while the alien hunt was a disappointment, the base was used as a research and test ground for stealth aircraft.  'I got to find out how we're going to deal with this, because [Area 51] is where we do a lot our invisibility research in terms of technology, like...

Red foxes have made headlines in the nation’s capital — and not in ways that endear them to humans. In April, one fox chased and bit nine people on Capitol Hill.

    Washington (CNN)Attorney General Merrick Garland assured a Senate panel on Tuesday that there will "not be interference" in the Justice Department's probe into Hunter Biden's business activities, and emphasized an appointee of former President Donald Trump is leading the investigation.Garland was pressed on the matter during a hearing before the Senate Appropriations Committee, with Republican Tennessee Sen. Bill Hagerty demanding to know whether he had been briefed on the probe. The attorney general noted that it's being run by David Weiss, the US attorney in Wilmington, Delaware. "I'm aware of that, but he reports to you," Hagerty responded. "He is supervising the investigation and I'm not at liberty to talk about internal Justice Department deliberations, but he is in charge of that investigation," Garland said. "There will not be interference of any political or improper kind." The probe began as early as 2018 and concerns multiple financial and business activities in foreign countries dating to when Hunter Biden's father was vice president. Investigators have examined whether Hunter Biden and some of his associates violated money laundering, tax and foreign lobbying...
    Duncan Robinson said there should be more chill about his off-the-cuff take about the chill crowd at FTX Arena. In the immediate wake of the Miami Heat’s Sunday playoff victory over the visiting Atlanta Hawks, Robinson quipped of the passionate home following, “It was an incredible atmosphere. I certainly wasn’t surprised, and I don’t think anyone should be surprised. Our fans have been amazing. Always have been, outside of maybe showing up maybe a little bit late. But that’s what you get in Miami.” Tuesday, as the Heat prepared for Game 2 against the Hawks in the best-of-seven first-round NBA playoff series, the reserve guard said that four seasons into his Miami tenure he can relate. “I didn’t even know people were talking about it,” he said of his Sunday comment. “I didn’t mean it as an indictment, to be honest with you. I mean, I think that’s just a very Miami thing, to just be showing up on your own time, your own speed. If anything, I think it’s in many ways a positive thing. “I feel like I...
    WE'VE all been there, unsure whether you want to continue dating someone so making a list of their pros and cons. But one woman has had the internet in hysterics with the list she made for the man she is dating. 1The woman had made a pros and cons list to decided whether she should still see him, but users were left in hysterics as to why she wasn't running away as quickly as possibleCredit: Twitter @Isobellllla And there's one detail in particular that has the internet in hysterics.

    On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm called for “everyone to step up, whether it’s gas station owners, whether it’s oil companies” to increase energy supply and said there is “concern about whether there is profiteering happening at the gas station level, as well as at the oil company level.” Granholm said, “Well, certainly, the oil companies, as they have said in their shareholder meetings, are making quite a profit at this time. And, as you noted in your introduction, it’s — this phenomenon of oil prices coming down and gas prices coming down much more slowly is called rockets and feathers, shooting up quickly, coming down very slowly. It’s been happening for a long period of time. But when the price is so high, it is really acute for people, and there is concern about whether there is profiteering happening at the gas station level, as well as at the oil company level. And I think the oil companies must be sensitive to this. I was in Houston last week for a very large energy...
    (CNN)TikTok is a place to ponder life's big questions, like: What would a crowdsourced musical based on Pixar's "Ratatouille" sound like? Will a Southern sorority hopeful get a bid to her favorite Greek house? And what will today be like -- bones or no bones? But few TikTok prompts have inspired the heated debate of its latest fascination: Are there more wheels or doors in the world?It's a question with an unknowable answer. But users have been quick to choose sides anyway, devising their own equations to inform their arguments and widening traditional definitions of what constitutes a door or a wheel (does a microwave door count? And can a fidget spinner be classified as a wheel?). Noodle the pugs Bones or No Bones routine decides what kind of day millions of people will have#TeamWheels quickly pointed out how many objects have more than one wheel -- four on your standard car and many more for big rigs.

    Cemal Yurttas/Getty Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Calling Vladimir Putin a “strongman” has a long history and fresh meaning as blood is spilled in his name across Ukraine. In recent days, he has been called a “strongman” by the New York Times, Politico, CBS News, NBC News, MSNBC, the Nation, the Hill, and USA Today.  “Strongman” is a conjuring word. It’s concise and common, historically deployed to describe autocrats who rule by violence and see themselves, or want to be seen, as worthy of fear. In 2018, Time magazine ran a cover story headlined “The ‘Strongmen Era’ Is Here.” It claimed “a new archetype of leader has emerged. We’re now in the strongman era,” naming Putin for “making trouble in…Ukraine” and “embod[ying] an image,” he thinks, “of Russian virility and swagger.” But historians are divided over whether the shorthand fits, and whether it euphemizes, even venerates, authoritarian atrocity. “‘Strongman’ appears to be worthy of veneration by Trump and his acolytes. Not for me,” Noam Chomsky tells me when...
    When the nation’s second-largest school district reopens for business despite tens of thousands of positive coronavirus tests among students and staff, things have changed. When the state of California, which led the nation in caution, tells medical staffers who tested positive to go back to work if they’re asymptomatic, things have changed. When you listen to NPR’s “On Point” podcast and hear doctors saying that in the midst of the Omicron variant surge and hospital fatigue, there are reasons for optimism and that “if you’re vaccinated you can start to live your life again,” things have changed. We are two years into a pandemic that has killed roughly 5.5 million people globally and altered life in ways big and small. Last January I wrote a column suggesting there was hope for a turnaround because the best medicine available — vaccine — was being pumped into arms everywhere. So where do we stand now? I’ve been trying to figure that out and would love to give you a definitive answer. But going forward, the virus will give us new looks and...
    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow took a quick break from political commentary on Monday, to offer the often-contentious world of Twitter a little bit of light-hearted dog humor. The top-rated MSNBC host tweeted out a picture of her broken glasses with the caption, “I know there is no such thing as a bad dog, but surely this is not the work of a good one.” I know there is no such thing as a bad dog, but surely this is not the work of a good one. pic.twitter.com/DSeqivpWSe — Rachel Maddow MSNBC (@maddow) December 27, 2021 The tweet quickly went viral and racked up over twenty thousand likes in just a few hours as dog lovers united across the Twitterverse to defend their loyal pets.

    Kyle Rittenhouse says he did not receive compensation for an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson and accompanying documentary on Fox Nation. Speaking with Ashleigh Banfield on NewsNation Tuesday, Rittenhouse discussed his outstanding legal bills, but denied that his donors are motivated by politics. He was confronted by Banfield about whether or not his decision to participate in the Carlson interview and documentary was part of a fundraising effort. “Do you feel you owe anybody who helped raise money?” Banfield asked. “Or do you feel you owe anyone who sent money, in any respect, whether you owe them a political stance, or whether you owe them certain kinds of interviews. People criticize that you did the Tucker Carlson interview because it was all part and parcel of the money raising.” Rittenhouse denied receiving any direct payment. “Well, actually, with Tucker, they reached out to us and they wanted to film a documentary,” Rittenhouse said. “There was no money exchanged. And we never even talked about money. It never was brought out. It was about memorializing my story.” Speaking on CNN...
    Politician Nikki Haley has said elected government officials who are beyond a certain age should undergo a 'cognitive test' in order to hold public office. Haley, a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations who also served as the 116th - and first female - governor of South Carolina from 2011 to 2017, made the comment in light of a series of gaffes made by 78-year-old President Joe Biden.  During an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) on Wednesday, Haley was asked specifically if she had any concerns about Biden, the oldest person to ever hold the presidency.  'Well what I'll tell you is, rather than making this about a person, we seriously need to have a conversation that if you're gonna have anyone above a certain age in a position of power — whether it's the House, whether it's the Senate, whether it's vice president, whether it's president — you should have some sort of cognitive test,' Haley said, comparing it to how lawmakers disclose their tax returns. 'And right now, let's face it, we've got a lot...
    U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy Expects Authorization To Vaccinate Young Children Soon, But Won't Predict End Of Pandemic cbsloc.al The surgeon general says a final sign-off is expected shortly on a COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. When asked whether school systems should institute a vaccine mandate, Murthy was generally supportive, calling it "a very reasonable conversation to have," and noting, "When school systems and localities think about mandating vaccines, they're primarily trying to figure out – how do we create a safe place in school? How do we make sure our kids are well and don't end up transmitting consequential illnesses to each other in school?" When asked whether there was any reason that should give parents pause about having their children vaccinated, Dr. Murthy said that children should not be vaccinated if they have a documented history of allergy to vaccines, and that parents should consult their pediatricians. Dr. Murthy did not offer any assurance as to how often both adults and children will be required to be vaccinated against...
    President Joe Biden faced a gauntlet of immigration questions during his CNN presidential town hall with Anderson Cooper. Law student Megan Crawford invoked Biden’s past criticism for former President Donald Trump’s treatment of illegal immigrants, and she asked “given that it’s nearly been a year into your [administration], why haven’t you been to the southern border of our country? And why did your stance on allowing immigrants suddenly revert to Trump-era policies?” Biden began his response by saying his administration has to keep the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy in effect because “the court said I had to maintain it.” He argued that Border Patrol has a dramatically reduced number of immigrant children in their custody now, and that he and Vice President Kamala Harris are working to address the root causes for immigration in Central America. Cooper leapt off of that by noting that Biden has kept Title 42 in place, allowing the government to quickly expel immigrants from the country in order to counteract the coronavirus pandemic. Biden explained “we maintained that because of… the continued extent of...
    Jill Biden hit the road on Wednesday to talk about school safety during the COVID pandemic after making her own return to in-person learning but wouldn't answer questions on whether there should be a vaccine mandate for classrooms.  'I don't think we're taking questions,' she said when she was asked by a reporter if public schools should have vaccine mandates.  President Joe Biden recently mandated vaccines for all federal workers and the Labor Department issued new regulations requiring businesses with more than 100 employees to have mandates or weekly testing. Biden was in Milwaukee to talk school reopening and safety issues as students return to the classroom during the pandemic.  She returned to her own in-person teaching job at a Northern Virginia Community College last week.  At the Marvin E. Pratt Elementary School she talked about the worries that come with returning to class during a pandemic.  'A simple cough can get your heart racing,' she acknowledged.  She called for unity, saying it was best for children. 'We can't know what the future holds, but we know what we owe our...
    The remains of the 13 US troops killed in an ISIS-K suicide blast are currently en route to Dover Air Force Base for dignified transfer, according to the Pentagon. 'The remains of the 13 individuals who were killed are on their way back to the United States, but I am not at liberty to give you their precise arrival,' Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said on Saturday. Kirby declined to confirm whether President Joe Biden would attend the dignified transfer at the base in Delaware, his home state, which is the domestic intake point for US military fatalities abroad. When asked on Friday if Biden would be present at Dover, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said: 'he would consider and want to be a part of any means of honoring the lives that were lost.'

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a press conference Thursday that she could not give an assessment about whether or not there will be any future terrorist attacks in Kabul. “I think it is important for people to know and understand that the threat that is posed by having thousands of U.S. military on the ground, still currently on the ground, implementing a mission, committed to a mission, as you heard Gen. [Kenneth] McKenzie and the president also say — that is a threat, they are a target. People gathering around at the airport — that is a threat, that is a target,” Psaki stated. “But ISIS’ ability to target individuals who are on the ground in Afghanistan is very different from ISIS’ ability to attack the U.S. and attack the homeland,” Psaki said. WASHINGTON, DC – AUGUST 25: White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki speaks during the daily press briefing at the White House on August 25, 2021 in Washington, DC.

    Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday during a visit to Singapore dodged question on whether her administration had made mistakes in its Afghanistan withdrawal, insisting they were focused on evacuation efforts and noting there would be plenty of time later on to analyze mistakes the US government made. And as she boarded the plane to Singapore, Harris cut off a reporter seemingly trying to ask her about Afghanistan with her signature laugh, adding 'slow down, everybody.' Harris said Afghanistan 'couldn't have a higher priority,' as she jetted off on the southeast Asia tour. Harris met with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and President Halimah Yacob during a trip aimed at bolstering ties with partners in the region as part of Washington's efforts to counter China's growing economic and security influence. 'There is going to be plenty of time to analyze what has happened and what has taken place in the context of the withdrawal from Afghanistan,' Harris said during a joint news conference with Singapore's prime minister. 'But right now we are singularly focused on evacuating American citizens, Afghans...
    State Department spokesman Ned Price was hounded by reporters on Thursday as he tried to explain the Biden administration's decision to evacuate much of its embassy personnel, at the same time touting 'diplomacy' advances with the Taliban. Neither State nor Defense nor the White House have any briefings scheduled for Friday, one day after the announcement.  'This is not abandonment. This is not an evacuation,' Price assured reporters numerous times throughout his briefing. 'What this is is a reduction in the size of our civilian footprint.'   'It appears to be a preparation for a full evacuation,' one reporter said. 'That's not true,' the spokesman responded. 'I respect you and we all know you have a job to do,' CBS reporter Christina Ruffini said to Price.  'But there is no way you can sit there and say that the people of Afghanistan watching the Taliban take over provinces, watching their country crumble are now going to watch American diplomats get on military planes and leave the country that that sends a signal that the U.S. is with them in the long...
    CBS News correspondent Christina Ruffini and State Department spokesperson Ned Price sparred amid the news on Thursday that the United States is sending 3,000 troops to Afghanistan to help evacuate U.S. Embassy personnel and other Americans from that country. Additionally, the United States will send 3,500 troops to Kuwait to be on standby. These developments come as the Taliban has taken over 12 of Afghanistan’s 34 provincial capitals amid the United States withdrawing its troops from the country by Aug. 31 after almost 20 years of war there following 9/11. “I respect you and we all know you have a job to do,” said Ruffini. “But there is no way you can sit there and say that the people of Afghanistan watching the Taliban take over provinces, watching their country crumble are now going to watch American diplomats get on military planes and leave the country that that sends a signal that the U.S. is with them in the long haul diplomatically.” “Look at what we’ve been doing. Look at the investment we have made in Afghanistan. Look at...
    A debate over the meaning of the U.S. national anthem's obscure third stanza is swirling once again, after Olympic hammer thrower Gwen Berry slammed the lyrics as blatantly racist.  The controversy relates to the phrase 'hireling and slave' in the third stanza, which is never sung in practice. Historians for years have debated whether author Francis Scott Key intended the words as an insult to British troops generally, or as a specific comment on formerly enslaved persons fighting for the British in the War of 1812. In an interview on Tuesday, Berry responded backlash over to her response to the anthem at the Olympic trials in Oregon, where she turned her back on the U.S. flag and draped a T-shirt over her head as the anthem played.  Berry insisted that she does not hate America and does want to represent the country at the Games in Tokyo, but said she had a specific problem with the Star-Spangled Banner.  'If you know your history, you know the full song of the National Anthem, the third paragraph speaks to slaves in America,...
    Phillip Faraone/Getty Images for Fortune https://www.mediaite.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Megyn-Kelly-6_28-Britney.mp3 Megyn Kelly claims she is “bothered” by the bombshell testimony Britney Spears delivered at a recent hearing on the conservatorship she has been under since 2008. While most public figures on all sides of the political spectrum rallied around the superstar, sending her messages of encouragement and validating her statement, Kelly is hung up on the “other side” of the story. “The thing that bothered me about her testimonial was, we didn’t hear the other side. And this judge, especially when I found out that Britney has been pushing to end this thing and objecting to it for many years, the judges heard this before, the judge has had reason to question, you know, whether this should stay in place for many years now, and she’s allowed it to,” she said. “There has to be a good reason for it. What we don’t know we don’t know what kind of mental state Britney actually in. We don’t know whether she’s attempted suicide over and over whether she tried to hurt others.

    (CNN)If you're ever studied astronomy, you've probably been exposed to something called the Drake equation. One side of the equation posits the number of civilizations in our galaxy with which it might be possible to communicate. The other side gives all the variables that add up to that number, including the average rate of star formation, the number of planets around those stars that have developed intelligent life and the ability to send radio signals."Depending on how you calculate it, the answer can be none, or it can be a billion," said theoretical cosmologist Katie Mack, author of the recent book "The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking)." Frank Drake speaks at a conference exploring the possibility of life on other planets at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on October 7, 2015.Astrophysicist Frank Drake, who formulated the equation way back in 1961, said it's really a way of showing "all the things you needed to know to predict how hard it's going to be to detect extraterrestrial life." Mack put it more directly: "The point of the...
    (CNN)A group of Louisiana State Police supervisors is currently reviewing all body camera and dashcam videos involving one police unit to investigate any patterns of misconduct, and it is particularly looking to see whether there has been a history of abuse in the unit's interactions with Black people, two sources familiar with the process confirmed to CNN. The unit -- Troop F -- is the same unit involved in the 2019 encounter that ended in the death of Ronald Greene. Greene died May 10, 2019, after what state police described as resisting arrest and a struggle with troopers. However, his family said they were told by state police Greene died in a car crash after a police chase, and their attorneys have accused police and state officials of engaging in a cover-up.Heres what we know about Ronald Greenes death in Louisiana Greene's family filed a federal wrongful death suit May 6, 2020.

    (CNN Business)A version of this article first appeared in the "Reliable Sources" newsletter. You can sign up for free right here.Two days after President Trump's deluded supporters stormed the Capitol and threatened members of Congress, I sent out a newsletter that said this: "As heinous as the attack looked in real time, on live TV and in our social feeds, it was even worse than we knew at the time. It was even more violent. It was even more treacherous. And Trump's behavior was even more disturbing."I could have written that again a month later... and a month after that... as testimonials and video evidence and criminal complaints have continued to pile up. "It was even worse than we knew" was even more true than we thought in January. That's what makes the riot denialism so galling. That's what makes the Republican attempts to block a real, rigorous probe into the attack so shocking. Partisans talk of "moving on," but there is no moving on without the truth.>> Jake Tapper on "The Lead:" The top three House Republicans "pushed the...
    Strange lights seen over the skies of Seattle Tuesday night have left some residents wondering whether they have seen a UFO.  Dozens of people took to Twitter to share footage of the unexplained lights, with many claiming it was evidence of extraterrestrial activity.  Several videos show the long thin line of lights moving quickly across the darkened sky.  Social media users as far north as Vancouver, Canada - 120 miles from Seattle - also recorded clips of the flying objects.  'What did we just witness over the Seattle area?' one asked.  'This thing was silent, huge in scale (at least a few football fields?) and moving fast to the southeast.' The person pondered whether it could be a UFO, 'a secret black budget government craft' or some sort of technology from SpaceX - the aerospace company founded by Elon Musk.    Indeed, many claimed the lights came from Starlink satellites, which are orbiting the Earth at present.  Strange lights seen over the skies of Seattle Tuesday night have left some residents wondering whether they witnessed a UFO sighting One...

    Savannah Rychcik March 12, 2021 0 Comments Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) is questioning whether there is a different standard for Republican and Democratic politicians who face sexual harassment allegations. “Is there a different standard for different sides of the aisle? We just had a president who lasted all four years with numerous allegations against him, so far as rape. No one on his own side of the aisle was making observations about whether or not he should stay in office,” Whitmer said during a Politico Live event. She added, “So is there a different standard? I guess one could conclude that but weighing in on that, I don’t know [if that] gets either one of us very far.” Whitmer weighed in on the allegations of sexual harassment against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D). She explained the claims should be taken seriously and expressed her support for an investigation. “If they are true then there should be accountability but until that investigation happens, I don’t know that you can make a conclusion,” Whitmer said.

    Banks usually condition the approval of a loan to the contracting of insurance. A requirement to which the entity cannot oblige the client, but that sometimes, despite the cost involvedYes, it is usually of interest to the user to lower the mortgage interest. The first thing to calculate to know whether or not to take out insurance is how much the interest on the mortgage would be lowered, for which you will have to read the details in detail bonus conditions. An aspect “especially relevant, because if they are subscribed and later canceled, the applied rate will rise in the points established in the mortgage deed”, they point out from the financial comparator HelpMyCash. Thus, the key question to ask is whether they really make the mortgage cheaper. To do this, it will be necessary to calculate how much that loan would cost, whether or not those policies are signed. There may be cases in which hiring the home insurance proposed by the entity would make the mortgage cheaper, although as this would probably become more expensive at each...

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday wouldn’t say whether there was a crisis at the southern border amid a recent influx of undocumented immigrants. "Do you believe that you have a crisis at the border? And is the government not acting as if you had a crisis at the border?" a reporter asked in Psaki’s daily briefing.  "I don't think I'm going to put new labels on it from here or from the podium, but it is a priority of the administration. It's a priority of our secretary of homeland security and certainly of the president who's kept abreast of the developments," the press secretary replied.  "Certainly, you know, having unaccompanied minors travel across the border ... so many that we are looking, we had to open a new facility, it is something that we take incredibly seriously. And we are eager to, of course, address humanely and with the focus of keeping them safe," Psaki said.  Psaki days ago warned Latin American immigrants from coming to the U.S. right now.  "Parents should not be sending their kids north right...
    Savannah Rychcik February 25, 2021 0 Comments White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is indicating the Biden administration would be leaving it up to Merrick Garland, the president’s nominee for attorney general, to determine whether there will be an investigation into former President Donald Trump’s alleged role in the Jan. 6 insurrection. During her appearance on “The View” Thursday, co-host Joy Behar asked Psaki if Biden will hold Trump accountable even if it “divides the country further.” “We’re going to do something new here and we’re going to have an independent justice department,” Psaki said. She added, “You saw Merrick Garland… He had an incredibly powerful testimony. He answered tons of questions that you just referenced.” “He’ll have to decide whether there’s an investigation moving forward and how that will proceed and that’s going to be a decision that’s up to him,” the press secretary said.

    By BEN FOX and ERIC TUCKER, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Leading technology companies said Tuesday that a months-long breach of corporate and government networks was so sophisticated, focused and labor-intensive that a nation had to be behind it, with all the evidence pointing to Russia. In the first congressional hearing on the breach, representatives of technology companies involved in the response described a hack of almost breathtaking precision, ambition and scope. The perpetrators stealthily scooped up specific emails and documents on a target list from the U.S. and other countries. “We haven’t seen this kind of sophistication matched with this kind of scale,” Microsoft President Brad Smith told the Senate Intelligence Committee. Forensic investigators have estimated that at least 1,000 highly skilled engineers would have been required to develop the code that hijacked widely used network software from Texas-based SolarWinds to deploy malware around the world through a security update. “We’ve seen substantial evidence that points to the Russian foreign intelligence agency and we have found no evidence that leads us anywhere else," Smith said. U.S. national security officials...

    The hunt for cybercriminals, who have attacked two French hospitals, Dax and Villefranche-sur-Saône, will be long and strewn with dead ends. But the hunt will accelerate to neutralize them. “We do not know the exact origin of the attacks in Dax and Villefranche-sur-Saône, which are most likely attacks, which were carried out by cybercriminals with ends that are lucrative”, underlines the Élysée before the presentation by Emmanuel Macron this Thursday of the acceleration of the national strategy in terms of cybersecurity. One thing is certain the two attacks followed “a modus operandi which is identical with the use of ransomware whose nickname is Ryuk”, first observed in August 2018. According to the National Information Systems Security Agency (ANSSI), “in October 2020, Ryuk would be responsible for 75% of attacks on the health sector, a sector he would attack since the first half of 2019 “. This ransomware would be sold would be sold as a “toolkit “ (toolbox) to groups of attackers. which could explain his intense activity. “Ryuk remains a particularly active ransomware in the second half of...
    LOTS of people have an irrational fear of going to the dentist - and considering how they rummage around your mouth with all kinds of sharp instruments, who can really blame them? But while we'd only ever worried about our dentists uncovering lots of cavities or root canals, it turns out they can tell a LOT about our sex lives from the inside of our mouths. 4Dr Huzefa Kapadia revealed that dentists can tell if you've performed oral sex recently thanks to a spot on the roof of the mouthCredit: @dentite/TikTok It all started when Cian McBrien shared a TikTok video claiming that dentists can see if a patient has performed oral sex. Filming their shocked expression, the teen wrote: "JUST FOUND OUT THE DENTIST CAN FIND OUT WETHER SOMEONE HAS GIVEN [HEAD] OR NOT. I'M SCREAMINGGGGG." Although the video racked up almost half a million "likes" on TikTok, many users questioned whether the claim was actually true - which prompted oral hygiene professionals to start sharing their insights. In a video which has been viewed over 33m times, Michigan-based...

    When Virginia Roberts wrote her memoir, The Billionaire’s Playboy Club, she described having had three sexual encounters with the Duke of York.  The first, she said, took place in London when she was just 17, to which she claims to have been trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein. The second occurred shortly afterwards at the Epstein mansion in New York. Then, on page 105 of the manuscript, Miss Roberts describes a final sexual encounter with Andrew. She does so in considerable, if not compelling, detail. Ghislaine Maxwell had told her to fly to Santa Fe to ‘meet someone there’. Miss Roberts recalled: ‘It was the middle of the day when I arrived at the airport. One of the ranch hands came to pick me up in a big work truck that smelled like dirt and sweat. ‘When we arrived at the mansion, my guest was already there, waiting for me. Virginia Roberts claims in her memoir that she had three sexual encounters with Prince Andrew, and that she was trafficked by Jeffery Epstein ‘I couldn’t wipe the look off my face...
    Director of Intelligence John Ratcliffe suggested in a Sunday morning there might not be a Joe Biden administration – as a Republican senator made the case that President Trump has effectively conceded the race. Ratcliffe, a Trump loyalist who the president installed following his passionate defenses during impeachment and the Mueller probe, described a Biden administration as something that may or may not come to pass. 'These election issues, we'll see who is in what seats and whether there is a Biden administration,' Ratcliffe told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on 'Sunday Morning Futures.'  Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said in an interview Sunday 'we'll see' whether 'there is a Biden administration' He spoke hours after Trump told a Georgia campaign rally Democrats 'stole' the election, which he called 'rigged.' 'They cheated and rigged our presidential election but we'll still win it. And they are going to try to rig this election too,' told thousands of supporters at a rally seeking to drive turnout in two runoff elections. He said he won Georgia, although Biden won it by more...
    In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, President Trump said he would take a "good, strong look" at whether UFOs exist. "Sunday Morning Futures" host Maria Bartiromo asked Trump point-blank whether the objects exist, to which the president replied, "Well, I'm gonna have to check on that. I mean, I've heard that. I heard that two days ago, so I'll check on that. I'll take a good, strong look at that." In June, the president's son Donald Trump Jr. asked his father if he would let us know if there are aliens, adding it's "the only thing I really want to know" and if he would ever "open up Roswell and let us know what's going on there." CLASSIFIED UFO BRIEFINGS MAY HAVE LEFT SENATORS 'DISTURBED,' EXPERT SAYS "So many people ask me that question," the president told his son at the time. "There are millions and millions of people that want to go there, that want to see it. I won't talk to you about what I know about it but it's very interesting. But Roswell is a very interesting place with a lot of...
    Kathleen Finlay/Getty Images A small new study has found that coronavirus patients who took calcifediol, a potent, metabolite form of vitamin D, were less like to be admitted to the ICU, and none died.  This is supported by previous evidence that getting enough vitamin D could be protective against severe cases of COVID-19. However, it's not clear whether supplements benefit people who already get enough vitamin D, and how other risk factors play a role, so more research is needed.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. There's new evidence that a dose of vitamin D could improve treatment outcomes for coronavirus patients, according to a small study published in the October issue of the The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Researchers from the University of Córdoba, Spain, studied 76 patients admitted to Reina Sofia University Hospital for COVID-19. All of the patients received the best treatment available, but 50 patients were randomly assigned to also received calcifediol, a metabolized form of vitamin D3 that can quickly increase vitamin D levels in patients.  The study found that...
    Andrew Weissmann, one of the top officials who served on Robert Mueller’s team, has a new book out detailing what he claims are missed opportunities and failings of the special counsel investigation. Today Mueller himself issued a rare statement standing by the investigation in an apparent response to Weissmann’s book: It is not surprising that members of the Special Counsel’s Office did not always agree, but it is disappointing to hear criticism of our team based on incomplete information,” Mueller said. Mueller said the team operated “knowing that our work would be scrutinized from all sides” and he sought to make clear that he was the office’s ultimate decider. “When important decisions had to be made, I made them,” he said. “I did so as I have always done, without any interest in currying favor or fear of the consequences. I stand by those decisions and by the conclusions of our investigation.” Weissmann did not comment to the Post, but during his appearance on MSNBC Tuesday afternoon, he addressed that rare pushback. Nicolle Wallace noted to Weissmann how he...

    Advertising expert and host of MSNBC's "Saturday Night Politics," Donny Deutsch, argued on Wednesday there is "no difference" between President Donald Trump and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. "What is the difference between Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump? he asked during an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. "I'm not saying there's a holocaust, but when you look at the tactics ... this is where we are right now." During the interview, Deutsch, himself of Jewish heritage, also lambasted Jewish supporters of the president. "How dare you!" he exclaimed. "How dare you, with what our people have gone through in history, and you see a man who is a dictator. And once you give a man absolute power, he is possible of anything." "If you are a Jew in this country and you are supporting Donald Trump, you are not looking back at our history," he continued. "And you are blind and you are walking like a lemming off a cliff. It is time to wake up. I'm sorry." "There is no difference from what Donald Trump...
