    Going on a dramatic weight loss diet when you're not obese could actually harm your health years later, a major study suggests. People already quite lean who lost 10lbs (4.5kg) were at a higher risk of Type 2 diabetesa decade later compared to their peers who didn't go on an extreme diet. They were also more likely to pile on the pounds further down the line, according to the research by Harvard University. The scientists said their results were 'surprising'.  But they believed lean people who underwent dramatic weight loss had higher levels of hunger hormones, making them more likely to crave junk food, and could gain fat more easily. Many skinny people attempt to lose fat in hope of achieving the 'Instagram'-style washboard abs or a more toned physique. But the team at Harvard is now warning that dramatic weight loss should be used only by those who 'medically need them'. Results also showed that lean people who lost their weight by following a fad diet or commercial weight loss programme were most likely to get fat later in...
    This is the tear-jerking moment Wynton Bernard told his mom he was a Major League baseball player after 10 years of bouncing around the minors. Bernard, 31, won't forget this week in a hurry, after the Colorado Rockies called him up to face the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, before he went on to tally his first hit, get a stolen base and secure his first ever run on debut.  Bernard has spent the last decade playing in the minors after he was initially drafted by the San Diego Padres, and he could be forgiven for thinking his time at the top had passed him by.

I sound like a gushing fangirl whenever I talk about the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker—there is so much to love. But, seriously, if I had to choose one single kitchen appliance to live with the rest of my life, it would be this one. Obviously, not having to leave home to get a delicious breakfast sandwich is a great advantage in and of itself. It’s true that the same result can be achieved with a toaster and frying pan, but who wants to deal with all of the prep and assembly and clean up afterward? Being able to stack all of the ingredients in order and then crack the egg right into the sandwich maker beats all of that hands down.

It’s the main reason I avoid food processors like the plague. But...
    Fox News host Tucker Carlson was defiant on Thursday as he defended his network being the only major news channel not to cover the January 6 hearings in primetime. Carlson immediately ripped into the largely Democrat-led hearings, which got primetime coverage on every major network but Fox. 'If at any time in your life you've ever made fun of totalitarian regimes that broadcast lies into the homes of the population that they can't turn off, take a look at that. That's happening right now,' he said. He then defended his network being the lone one to stay away from much of the proceedings.   'This is the only hour on an American news channel that won't be covering their propaganda live,' Carlson opened his show saying. 'They are lying and we are not going to help them do it.'  Fox News host Tucker Carlson was defiant on Thursday as he led off an evening where his network would be the only major news channel not to cover the January 6 hearings Carlson immediately ripped into the largely Democrat-led hearings, which got...
    President Joe Biden told union members in Washington Wednesday that the war in Ukraine could go on 'a long time,' as he recounted some of the horrors being uncovered in Bucha amid Russia's invasion. 'This war can continue for a long time, but the United States will continue to stand with Ukraine and Ukrainian people in the fight for freedom,' Biden told the North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) Legislative Conference. 'And I just want you to know that – and by the way, if I got to go to war, I'm going to you guys,' he said, drawing cheers from the union crowd.  Biden also described some of the chilling details to emerge from Bucha and other cities and towns where Russians forces have been forced to pull back amid defensive actions by Ukrainians. He described images of civilians 'hands tied behind the backs, civilians executed in cold blood, bodies dumped into mass graves. Sense of brutality and humanity left for all the world to see, unapologetically. There's nothing less happening than major war crimes,' Biden said.  'This war can...
    Tiger Woods is ready to make his long-awaited return to golf, and he plans on doing it this week at the sport's most celebrated major, The Masters. 'As of right now, I feel like I am going to play,' the five-time Masters champion said Tuesday following a practice round in Augusta, Georgia. Woods has not played in a PGA Tour event since suffering significant leg injuries in a horrific car accident in February of 2021 in Southern California. The 46-year-old flew to August last week to test his surgically repaired legs with some practice rounds, and apparently was happy with the progress he's made in recovery. 'I've worked hard to get to this point to test it out and see if I can do this,' Woods said. Tiger Woods warms up on the range during a practice round prior to the Masters on Tuesday
    Tiger Woods believes he is in with a shout of winning at Augusta after he gave the clearest indication yet that he will compete for a sixth Masters title.  Woods first did an interview with Masters Radio where he was asked if he is committed to playing this week. He smiled and winked before dragging it out to say he would reveal all in his press conference.   'It is great to be back and to be able to feel the energy and the excitement again. Hopefully we are going to have a great week,' he said to open his press conference.  Quickly pressed on whether he has committed to playing, Woods added: 'As of right now I feel like I am going to play.' Asked if he can win, 14 months on from shattering his leg in a horrific car crash, he was defiant in response. 'I do. I can hit it just fine. I have no qualms what I can do physically from a golf standpoint,' he added. 'Walking is the hard part. 72 holes is a long road. It...
    A child greets from the window of a bus after crossing the Ukrainian border with Poland at the Medyka border crossing, southeastern Poland, on March 14, 2022.Louisa Gouliamaki | AFP | Getty Images In less than three weeks, Russia's invasion of Ukraine has sent 3 million people fleeing their homes to neighboring countries — with still millions more displaced domestically — in what has quickly become Europe's worst migrant crisis since World War II. While the majority have been compassionately welcomed by host countries rejecting President Vladimir Putin's indiscriminate attack, the sudden influx of people is having a profound impact on the European landscape — with potentially significant consequences. Nowhere is that impact more pronounced than in Poland.Poland: Ukraine's closest neighborSince the start of the war on Feb. 24, Poland has welcomed over 1.8 million refugees — almost twice the 1 million authorities had anticipated and increasing its population by 4.8%. The east European country is a natural point of entry for Ukrainians owing to their 530-kilometer shared land border, as well as numerous historical, cultural and economic ties. Indeed,...
    An unprecedented day of chaos led to changes nearly everywhere in the AP Top 25, except the top two spots. It also tightened up major conference races across the country. Heading into the final week of the regular season, the first-place team in every undecided league except the Pac-12 has a lead of one game or less. The Pac-12 hasn’t been decided, either; No. 2 Arizona leads No. 16 Southern California by 1 1/2 games, but has three games this week. In the Big East, No. 9 Providence clinched the regular-season title over the weekend. To say it’s going to be a big week in the AP Top 25 is an understatement. ACC No. 4 Duke will play one of the biggest games in Cameron Indoor Stadium history on Saturday. Not only is it against North Carolina, it will be the final home game in the storied career of coach Mike Krzyzewski. It could decide the ACC regular-season title, too. The Blue Devils (25-4, 15-3, ACC) moved up three spots in this week’s poll and gave themselves a one-game lead...
    A major Sex and the City character will be killed off in the first episode of the show's new comeback series, sources claim. A person close to the show teased that 'it is going to be a big death' – prompting fears that the return of actor Chris Noth, who plays Carrie Bradshaw's husband Mr. Big, could be a short one. Other show insiders are speculating it could be the death of Samantha Jones, following the bitter feud between actresses Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker. The source did confirm that Carrie Bradshaw, played by Jessica Parker, will not die in episode one. Only senior cast and crew have been made aware of the character kill-off, and are sworn to secrecy. Executive producer Sarah Jessica Parker wants to 'shake up audiences from the get go to make them realize this is a different paced show from the previous one, where anything can happen and anyone can go… just like life', the source said. The insider says that the shock death in the show will lead column writer turned podcaster Bradshaw...
    President Joe Biden President Joe Biden has named Ashley Tabaddor, a vocal critic of the previous administration’s anti-immigrant and anti-asylum policies and the president of the national immigration judges union, as the top attorney at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the agency tasked with adjudicating immigration paperwork that has been decimated and politicized over the past four years. It’s another major sign that the new Biden administration is intent on fulfilling its pledge to retreat from many of the prior administration’s actions at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). In fact, CNN reports that “[o]ver recent days, the department has started to hire staff with extensive backgrounds in immigrant rights, immigration law and refugee resettlement.” CNN’s Priscilla Alvarez reports that new hires at DHS include David Shahoulian, the new assistant secretary for border security and immigration and the former chief counsel for the House Judiciary Committee, which carried out expansive investigations into the prior administration’s abuses against asylum-seekers and their children. “He's joined by Adam Hunter, who serves as deputy assistant secretary on immigration for DHS,” CNN continued. “Hunter comes from the Refugee Council USA, a coalition of 29...
    Reuters January 20, 2021 0 Comments The arrival of the Bidens and their dogs Major and Champ at the White House this week marks the return of a longstanding tradition – four-legged furry friends at the 18-acre estate that is home to the U.S. president. Outgoing President Donald Trump was the first president since Andrew Johnson in the 1860s not to share the presidential digs with a dog or a cat – or even a raccoon, like the one kept by Calvin Coolidge in the 1920s. Major, a German Shepherd, will be the first rescue dog ever to live in the White House. The Bidens adopted him in November 2018 from the Delaware Humane Association. Champ, also a German Shepherd, joined the family in 2008. “From shelter pup at the Delaware Humane Association to First Dog at the White House, Major Biden is barking proof that every dog can live the American dream,” said the group, which hosted an online “indoguration” fundraiser on Jan. 17 to celebrate Major’s move into the White House on Jan. 20. Former President Barack...
    Hong Kong (CNN)As Barack Obama ended his 75th day as President of the United States, the engines of a massive North Korean rocket roared to life half a world away -- sparking one of the first major international crises of his administration.Pyongyang's first missile test during Donald Trump's presidency came even sooner. On his 23rd day in office, as he and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sat down for dinner on the terrace of the US President's opulent Florida club, Mar-a-Lago, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the successful test launch of a solid-fueled ballistic missile. So if former Vice President Joseph Biden were to unseat Trump in the November 3 presidential election, would North Korea again conduct some sort of provocation in a new administration's early days? When it comes to divining North Korea's intentions, some words of wisdom variously attributed to both Mark Twain and New York Yankee's legend Yogi Berra ring particularly true: Predictions are hard, especially about the future.This is, after all, North Korea, one of the world's most isolated societies and secretive governments.

    (CBS Local)– Howard University alum Mark McKinnon can be seen this weekend in a new BET movie that was shot in Maryland. “The Waiting Room” premieres on Saturday, October 17 at 9pm EST and it is a film about two women that receive life-changing breast cancer diagnoses. The short film is being presented by BET Her, an initiative focused on putting Black women in leading roles in front of and behind the camera. McKinnon is extremely grateful for the opportunity to be in the film and work with several talented Black women. Photo Credit: Mark McKinnon “It was truly an honor and I had a lot of fun being in this project,” said McKinnon, in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “I had so much fun working under Sheryl Lee Ralph, who was the director and I really wanted to be a part of something that was going to make a major impact in our community. This project was the one to do that. The biggest thing I learned is we all have to work together. A lot of time...

    SAN ANTONIO – As coronavirus cases are still reaching daily high numbers in San Antonio and Bexar County, the pandemic is continuing to leave an impact on the local economy. Major General Juan Ayala, interim president and CEO of the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, joined Leading SA on Sunday to discuss the current economic state of San Antonio and the future for economic stability during this public health crisis. “The San Antonio economy took a major hit because of COVID-19, and right now, there’s a lot of businesses that are struggling, even though the PPP loans and the government has helped. However, they’re trying to pivot our small businesses. We have about 1,300 small businesses in the San Antonio Spanish Chamber and they’re trying to pivot and be creative,” Ayala said. Tourism, entertainment and small businesses in San Antonio have been ravaged by the pandemic, and Ayala said right now, it’s more important than ever to pivot your business model, as the future of the virus is uncertain. “Our small business owners have been very resilient and they...
    The true test won’t come until he returns to camp, but with less than a week until pitchers and catchers report to Citi Field, the Mets are bullish on Yoenis Cespedes’ chances of cracking the Opening Day lineup. “I think there is a strong chance he is going to be ready once the 60-game season starts,” a club source said Wednesday. “And having his bat in the lineup, that is special.” The two-year anniversary of Cespedes’ last appearance with the Mets is July 20. Three or four days later, depending on MLB’s yet-to-be-released schedule, the Mets open the season. When spring training was suspended in March, the 34-year-old outfielder was taking live batting practice and shagging flies, but still hadn’t demonstrated he could run the bases. Cespedes underwent separate surgeries to remove heel calcifications in 2018. While still rehabbing from those surgeries in May 2019, he sustained right ankle fractures during an encounter with a wild boar on his ranch. The incident with the wild boar led Cespedes to taking a significant hit financially. Instead of risking that an arbitrator...
    (CNN)The Dutch Prime Minister has said his views on the national tradition of dressing in blackface to portray the character of "Zwarte Piet," or Black Pete, have undergone "major changes" -- but he won't go as far as banning it. Mark Rutte made the comments in parliament on Thursday, as anti-racism protestors across the Netherlands took to the streets in reaction to the death of George Floyd. The protests were organized in part by a group called "Black Pete is Racism."This country with a colonial history has a blackface problemThe Dutch tradition of "Black Pete" typically sees a white person wearing full blackface, an Afro wig, red lipstick and earrings, and is often part of the Netherlands' St. Nicholas festivities in December. Popularized in a 19th-century children's book, the character still features in street carnivals and on Dutch television. But the character has increasingly come under criticism in recent years for perpetuating racist tropes. "I myself have also experienced major changes about Black Pete," Rutte said during a late-night parliamentary debate. "I also belonged to that group that said, 'Black...
