    A year and a half ago, my conscience got to me, so I went shopping for an electric car. I’d written about why Los Angeles now has more humidity and mosquitoes, why Joshua trees are dying, why juvenile great white sharks are migrating north to Monterey Bay, why there’s less coastal fog and slower growth in redwood forests, and why trophy grapes like cabernet sauvignon are living on borrowed time. Climate change is the culprit, and vehicle emissions are a major cause. My old Prius was no gas-guzzler, but it was beaten up and I was ready for some new wheels. I had issues, though, with the electric vehicles I considered. They were too expensive. There weren’t enough charging stations, other than for Teslas, to make long-distance travel convenient. Battery technology was still evolving, and mining for materials created an environmental hazard. Business What car buyers should know about the coming tax credits for EVs For California consumers thinking about going electric, the Inflation Reduction Act could tilt the math in favor of nabbing that new Model 3 or...
    When cornerback Jaylon Johnson reached the end of the Chicago Bears offseason program in June, he knew exactly what this new era at Halas Hall is supposed to be about. The feeling-out process with the coaching staff had progressed, and players had a clear understanding of their bosses’ demands. Coach Matt Eberflus had made it a point since the spring to set a tone, later asking his veteran leaders to demonstrate how he wanted his teams to practice and play. So by the time Johnson pulled back up Football Drive in Lake Forest for the start of training camp, he understood Eberflus’ approach. “It really kind of takes things back to the fundamentals and just playing football hard and playing football the right way,” Johnson said. “I thought (the coaches) established a good sense of tough-nosed football. And I wouldn’t say our last staff didn’t. I just think (this staff’s) emphasis is a lot more.” For Eberflus, there’s a way winning football is meant to be played — at full speed and with maximum effort at all times. That philosophy...
    IT’S beginning to feel a lot like the 1970s. Here we are with unions holding the Government to ransom and the nation gridlocked by a completely unjustifiable strike. 3The answer to the 1970s problem was what became known as ReagonomicsCredit: Getty 3The leadership of Margaret Thatcher here and Ronald Reagan in the US pulled the two nations out of the economic and political doldrumsCredit: AP:Associated Press On top of that we have terrible inflation — now at a staggering 9.1 per cent — and a rising cost of living. And then there are the tax rises. For anyone old enough to remember the Seventies, it is all horribly familiar. But back then there was an answer. After the stagnation and much, much more, we had the 1980s. In the Eighties the leadership of Margaret Thatcher here and Ronald Reagan in the US pulled the two nations out of the economic and political doldrums we were in. The Labour Party in Britain and the Democrat party in America had wrecked their respective economies. For a lot of people it seemed...
    The Nanny star Fran Drescher has revealed that she will never marry again - but plans to grow old with her openly gay ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson. In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com Drescher said her relationship with Jacobson is 'closer than when we were married', adding: 'We still love each other.' Drescher, 64, and Nanny show creator and producer Jacobson overcame a tumultuous divorce in 1999, thanks to their agent, who she said persuaded them 'not to throw the baby out with the bath water.' The pair were side by side as the actress picked up the inaugural Judy Garland Legacy Award at the Hollywood Museum's LGBTQ+ Real To Reel Awards on June 9. The showbiz world was shocked when Jacobson split with his childhood sweetheart wife in 1999, coming out as gay, at the height of her career. The Nanny ran from 1993-1999, earning Drescher an Emmy Award and two Golden Globe nominations.  But Drescher told DailyMail.com that practicing 'Buddhist philosophy' and accepting 'bad things happen to good people' helped her overcome her personal struggles. Fran Drescher and...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki snarked at a reporter who challenged her on President Joe Biden’s stalled agenda. In an exchange during Thursday’s White House press briefing, Bloomberg’s Justin Sink noted various recent developments and circumstances which have not been favorable to the administration. “Frankly, things look like they’re going poorly right now for the White House,” Sink said. “Build Back Better is blocked, voting rights is blocked. Inflation is at a 40-year high, the virus is setting records for infections.” He added, “I’m wondering at what point do you take stock and say things need to change internally, Whether you’re outreach for the Hill, the leadership in the White House. You seem to be stymied on an incredible number of fronts.” Psaki pushed back, touting administration accomplishments including; record job growth and low unemployment, the current U.S. vaccination rate, and restored foreign relations. She then acknowledged the troubles the administration has faced on the legislative front. “We also recognize when you have a small margin and threshold in the Senate, it’s very difficult to get things done and...
    TWO brothers from New Hampshire have embraced the holiday spirit of giving year after year - but have made it easy by regifting each other the same box of candy for 30 years. Ryan Wasson first gifted the "Santa's Candy Book" to his brother, Eric, in 1987. 3This is the Santa candy box that the Wasson brothers have been regiftingCredit: AP:Associated Press 3The brothers have been regifting the candy box for over 30 yearsCredit: AP:Associated Press 3The gag involved a restaurant one yearCredit: AP:Associated Press The book contains 10 rolls of Frankford fruit-flavored candy. According to Ryan, the gift was a gag because he knew his brother wouldn't care for it. "I didn't eat them," Eric said to WMUR-TV. "And so the next year I thought, 'Hey, I think I'm going to give it back to him. He'll never remember.'"

    The quarantines that have brought headlong to everyone who has come to Tokyo for the Olympic Games they are not strange to Lucas Mondelo, Spanish women’s basketball coach, who has already experienced several when coming and going as coach of the Toyota antilopes of the Japanese league. Know the terrain and face the Games as an opportunity: to make up for the Eurobasket. Mondelo (Barcelona, ​​1967), participant from the bench in a historic streak of the women’s basketball team, seven international championships without getting off the podium – including the silver medal in Rio 2016 and three European golds – assures . in Tokyo (Japan) that the team takes these Games as the opportunity to make up for the “hard blow” of the recent Eurobasket, in which they finished seventh and had “very bad luck.” Option that is presented to them just a few weeks later, something that happens “very rarely” in sport. The Spanish team arrives at these Games in a new process of generational change, with more than 20 years of difference between the captain, the base...
    The daughter of a woman missing after a Miami Beach condo collapsed told Fox News on Friday that she was “hoping for a miracle.” “Obviously everything’s very concerning and we’re heartbroken,” Rachel Spiegel, said in an interview with Fox’s Martha MacCallum. Spiegel noted that “extreme rain” was falling on the scene as of Friday afternoon, and said she last spoke to her mother Judy on Wednesday. “I don’t know if you can hear that thunder, but I’m very concerned,” Spiegel said, “because does that mean that they have to stop their operation because of the weather?” MacCallum said cameras showed rescue crews were still on top of the building, adding, “We know they’re working so hard to do anything that they can to get to anybody who might be calling out to them, or might be alive, because it’s only been 36 hours. We’re so hopeful that there are pockets and that they will find your mom and other people’s loved ones in those pockets.” The Champlain Towers South condominium in North Beach collapsed early Thursday morning.

    More than 150 employees at a Houston hospital system who refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine have been fired or resigned after a judge dismissed an employee lawsuit over the vaccine requirement. Jennifer Bridges, a registered nurse who is the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit against Houston Methodist Hospital, said her director called her Tuesday to ask if she'd gotten the vaccine yet or made any effort to do so. She said that when she replied "absolutely not," she was told that she was terminated. Bridges told "Hannity" on Wednesday that she chose to forego the vaccine because she possessed natural immunity after contracting the coronavirus last summer. "I had COVID last summer, I don't need that vaccine, and Methodist did not care about that, that was not an option at all," she said. HOUSTON HOSPITAL WORKERS FIRED, RESIGN OVER COVID-19 VACCINE "We worked so hard last year," Bridges added. "I mean, we were there through thick and thin when we had no help… it was horrible. And these people that are putting forth these rules right now for us and kicking us to the curb, they weren't there. They weren't even...
    A video of a man and his young daughter slamming critical race theory and encouraging people to love others regardless of race is going viral on social media. “How we treat people is based on who they are and not what color they are,” the man says while sitting next to his daughter. She then adds, “And if they’re nice and smart.” “See, this is how children think right here,” the father says in the video, which has been viewed thousands of times. “Critical race theory wants to end that. Not with my children.

    BRITAIN’S high streets must be at the heart of the nation’s economic recovery. So we welcome the £5billion lifeline for bricks-and-mortar shops and pubs that Rishi Sunak will announce in Wednesday’s Budget. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates... 2Chancellor Rishi Sunak must target any tax grabs at those who have made massive profits from Covid as he spells out Wednesday's BudgetCredit: EPA Some 700,000 hard-up businesses could pocket up to £18,000 under the scheme. Boris Johnson has staked his political future on improving life for those far from London and the affluent South East. As one aide to the PM said: “If Darlington high street isn’t visibly better in four years’ time, we’ll be in trouble.” But this must not be the Chancellor’s sole objective for the Budget. He is walking a tightrope between stimulating spending and tackling our staggering £2trillion national debt. As he pointed out yesterday, a one per cent hike in interest rates would increase the cost of managing the debt by £25billion — almost £48,000 every minute. On Wednesday Rishi must spell...
    MATT Hancock vowed today that Britain needed to "come down hard" on the new South African variant as he ordered Brits in infected areas to stay inside - and get tested. It came as he revealed 9.2million people have now had their first vaccine - with nearly one million people over the last weekend alone. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 5Hancock ordered people in a range of postcodes to stay inside and get tested Ministers vowed to track down every single case of the new variant - which is feared to be 50 per cent more contagious than the original strain. Earlier today it was revealed that 80,000 Brits will be asked to take a door-to-door Covid test after more than 100 cases of the South African variant were discovered across the country. Some of them hadn't travelled recently either - meaning there is now community transmission of the virus. The mutation, which emerged from South Africa, and is named 501YV2, but there is no evidence that it causes more severe disease. Mr Hancock...

    President Donald Trump rallied supporters for Sen. David Perdue and Sen. Kelly Loeffler in the Senate runoff election in a message Wednesday. “Will be going to Georgia for a big Trump Rally in support of our two great Republican Senators, David and Kelly,” Trump wrote on Twitter. The president previously indicated that he will campaign in the state for the two Senate Republicans on Saturday, September 5. “They are fantastic people who love their Country and love their State,” Trump wrote. “We must work hard and be sure they win.” The president continues voicing support for Loeffler and Perdue even as he has criticized Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for failing to pursue allegations of voter fraud in the state. “Why won’t Governor Brian Kemp, the hapless Governor of Georgia, use his emergency powers, which can be easily done, to overrule his obstinate Secretary of State, and do a match of signatures on envelopes,” Trump asked Monday on Twitter. ….Also, quickly check the number of envelopes versus the number of ballots.

    New York City — Direct evidence implicating former Vice President Joe Biden in a pay-for-play corruption scandal will be released to the public 10 days prior to the 2020 election, Rudy Giuliani told Daily Caller’s senior White House correspondent Christian Datoc in an exclusive interview. The former New York City mayor spoke Thursday evening with Datoc about all of the new allegations raised by emails and text messages alleged to have been pulled from a hard drive previously owned by Hunter Biden. Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, did not deny that this is a political hit job. He said the reason he is releasing it slowly is to catch Biden in “lies” as his campaign denies the allegations. (RELATED: Burisma Official Told Hunter Biden They Wanted To ‘Close Down’ Investigation Against Firm’s Owner, According To Unconfirmed Email) Datoc pressed him to release a copy of the hard drive in full so that the Daily Caller could verify it, but Giuliani declined. Giuliani further accused Datoc’s questions about the veracity of the information originally published by the New York Post...
    Melanie McFarland October 9, 2020 11:01PM (UTC) Slightly past the midway point of "The Amber Ruffin Show" premiere, the irrepressibly jolly host sits down for a serious moment. "Because I have my own show, I have a responsibility to say things that people need to know but that aren't being said," she explains. "It's a cool opportunity that I don't take lightly. There are very big obvious truths no one wants to say on TV, but I will." : People who recognize Ruffin from her guest segments on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," where she's worked as writer since 2014, understand that she could be teeing up to just about anything. Ruffin's comedy claim to fame is to envelop hard truths in a bubble wrap of perkiness. An early memorable appearance of hers on "Late Night" was a post-2016 election bit where she appeared under the auspices of offering a message of hope to  Hillary Clinton's shocked white supporters. That message? "Join in the fun!" she said, the "fun" being our nation's rampant sexism and racism to which they'd...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Sisters in Queens have made it their mission to support the deaf and hard of hearing by creating see-through masks and sharing them throughout their Kew Gardens community. As CBS2’s Vanessa Murdock reports, the Lin sisters have big smiles, but even bigger hearts. Julia, Kate and Sarah Lin crafted their see-through masks from scratch. “With a lot of people wearing masks, it is hard for people who are deaf or hard of hearing,” 13-year-old Sarah said. She’s been a Girl Scout for seven years. “This is a project to really just to spread awareness, it’s not for us to make money. We just want to help others,” 11-year-old Julia said. She’s been a Girl Scout for six years. “We get to make the world a better place,” said 15-year-old Kate. She’s been a Girl Scout for ten years. They started their “Deaf and Hard of Hearing Friendly Project” in July.

    A Chicago pastor told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday that the violence and looting in the city in recent weeks “only destroys the things that we are striving so hard to advance in our community.” Pastor Corey Brooks of New Beginnings Church made the statement days after Chicago reportedly recorded 18 murders on May 31, the city’s deadliest day in 60 years. The grim milestone was reached on a day Chicago was roiled by another round of protests and looting following the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis. The 18 deaths tallied by the University of Chicago Crime Lab made May 31, 2020, the single-most violent day in six decades, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday. The Crime Lab numbers go back only to 1961.
