    (CNN)HBO has followed the majesty of "Game of Thrones" with what might be called "games of throne" in "House of the Dragon," a series whose epic visual grandeur belies a smaller and less addictive power struggle, more narrowly focused on the Targaryen line. It's not bad, and there are dragons aplenty, but it doesn't produce the sort of characters that defined and elevated its predecessor to prestige-TV royalty.Working from author George R.R. Martin's prequel "Fire & Blood," the new series has the disadvantage of being set almost two centuries before the key events in "Game of Thrones," taking place 172 years prior to the birth of Daenerys Targaryen. That ratchets up the pressure to sink or swim -- or rather, soar or sputter -- strictly on its own terms.The current occupant of the Iron Throne, King Viserys Targaryen (Paddy Considine), is somewhat feckless as monarchs go, so much so that he's called weak by his brother Daemon (Matt Smith, playing a very different prince from his role in "The Crown"), a ruthless libertine who openly lusts for power.Mostly, Viserys yearns...
    Tampa’s Mayor Jane Castor has defied Florida’ Governor after promising not to arrest women who want to have an abortion. Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended a state attorney after he similarly pledged not to prosecute those who seek or perform abortions or provide trans surgeries earlier this month. Andrew Warren, of the 13th Judicial Circuit in Hillsborough County was suspended, and has now lodged a lawsuit against DeSantis. Speaking at an event in West Tampa, Mayor Castor was asked by a member of Tampa’s Democratic Socialists of America if she would order Tampa Police to arrest those who have had ‘illegal’ abortions. Sam May said: ‘I'm scared to have a kid here. I'm scared to do something that could put my life in jeopardy, or to be arrested for a miscarriage. ‘My question is, will you talk with police and tell them not to arrest?’ According to CL Tampa, Castor replied that arrests are ‘100% not going to happen.’ Tampa Mayor Jane Castor has vowed that she will not make police enforce Florida's 15-week abortion ban. She said that arrests were...

    The ECB has announced it will be hiking rates in July and September to counter record inflation.Daniel Roland | Afp | Getty Images Euro zone inflation reached a new record high in June just ahead of the European Central Bank's first rate increase in 11 years. Headline inflation came in at 8.6% (year-on-year) for last month, according to preliminary figures from Europe's statics office Eurostat. The rate had reached 8.1% in May which means the cost of living is continuing to surge across the euro zone nations. Germany surprised many earlier this week when it reported a drop of 0.5 percentage points in inflation month-on-month. Experts said this was due to new government subsidies to ease the impact of higher energy prices and it was not yet the end of surging inflation rates. But both France and Spain experienced new inflation records in June with the latter surpassing the 10% threshold for the first time since 1985, according to Reuters.ECB actionThe ECB, which has vowed to tackle the surge in prices, is due to meet in late July to announce...
    Almost everyone has thought about how they would spend their imaginary lottery winnings. How much do I invest? What amount should I save? How big should my boat be? But most of us never get the chance to put our plan to work.  Majid Hassan will, and he's got the perfect job to answer those questions. The Fredericksburg man won more than $180,000 in the Virginia Lottery Cash 5 earlier this year when he matched all five numbers — 2-21-26-39-40. He grabbed a ticket on his ride home from work at the Super Giant at 550 Celebrate Virginia Parkway for the March 26 drawing. Hassan has a leg up on other lottery winners since he works in finance, but he was still at a loss when he realized he'd won.  "What do I do?" he recalled thinking when he spoke to the Virginia Lottery earlier this month. "Tell everyone?" But he eventually figured out what to do: enjoy it.  "It’s unbelievable!" he said. "There’s no feeling like it!" According to the lottery, the odds of getting all five numbers in the Cash 5...

    The number of homes for sale nationwide in May was 8% higher than a year earlier, marking the first time since June 2019 that active inventory rose, according to Realtor.com. Nationwide, active listings are still 48.5% lower than in May 2020. More Business News In the D.C. metro area, active listings in May were higher than a year ago, but just by 1.5%.  And the number of new listings that came on the market in the D.C. region last month was down 5.5%. Active listings in Baltimore were up 5.5% from last May, while new listings were down 7.3%.

    Ryan Poles made four trades Saturday in the final day of the draft, but the deal the Chicago Bears general manager could not make was finding a taker for veteran quarterback Nick Foles. That led the team Sunday to release the veteran and former Super Bowl MVP, allowing Foles to become a free agent and search for his next team. NFL Media reported the move Saturday night. Foles’ contract called for him to receive a fully-guaranteed $4 million roster bonus on the fifth day of the current league year that began in March. He was due to earn a $4 million base salary this season with $1 million of it also fully guaranteed. The Bears effectively replaced Foles, 33, when they signed veteran Trevor Siemian to be their No. 2 quarterback behind Justin Fields. Foles did not attend the voluntary minicamp earlier this month at Halas Hall. Poles was asked about Foles’ status earlier Saturday evening but didn’t offer an update. “We haven’t gotten there yet,” he said. “Obviously, we’ll update you when the next move happens.

    "I'm not saying it would have changed their minds earlier, but you’re telling me if he hadn't come out earlier, if the President of the United States with the bully pulpit, the leader of the Democratic Party, had he not come out three, six, nine months earlier and said, ‘We need to get this filibuster out of the way for voting rights,’ that wouldn't have helped?" Hasan continued. Psaki said there was no evidence that such a course of action would have changed the minds of Democrats who were opposed to removing the filibuster. Also in the interview, Psaki blamed COVID-19 for supply chain problems and the plague on the American psyche while she touted some elements of the economy that she saw as positive. She also again blamed "meat conglomerates" for high prices on meat at grocery stores.Here's the video of Mehdi assailing Psaki: Jen Psaki Defends Filibuster Strategy www.youtube.com
    A MUM has been slammed online for denying her daughter the chance to say goodbye to her dad's dog. She was called 'cruel and unreasonable' for not letting her 9-year-old daughter get picked up a day earlier than normal by her dad so that she could see his elderly rescue dog before it was euthanised. 3The loss of your first pet always leaves a mark on your heartCredit: Getty Taking to Reddit, the mother wrote: “My daughter loves this dog, and I've tried to indulge that as much as possible and the days I have her (her dad) will let (our daughter) video call with him and the dog which I think is a bit extreme but to each their own." The former couple got the dog shortly after their daughter was born and he was 6 or 7, so he has lived a long life and grown up with their child. Her ex-husband told the 29-year-old mum that she was being 'dramatic, petty and cruel' for standing in the way of the goodbye, but instead she chose to...

    Scientists have discovered that a receptor in the human brain is responsible for people getting taller and reaching puberty earlier than ever, according to a new study. The researchers — including those from University of Cambridge, Queen Mary University of London, University of Bristol, University of Michigan and Vanderbilt University — found that the MC3R receptor, located in hypothalamic neurons, control people's reproduction and growth. The melanocortin 3 receptor (MC3R) system controls the release of certain hormones that regulate growth and sexual maturation in response to certain nutritional signals. The researchers found that when the receptor does not work properly, people are shorter in height and went into puberty later.  During the 20th century, the average height of a person in the U.K. increased 3.9 inches (10 centimeters), while around the world it jumped 7.8 inches (20cm) in some countries.

    Every mother will remember the days when her toddler resorted to all manner of avoidance tactics when bedtime came around. The child was either over-stimulated or ratty and exhausted, and insisted they needed a drink, they were hungry, they wanted to look at a book or had something of vital importance to say. Anything to not get into bed and go to sleep. Now, imagine the same situation, but the person in question is 55 years old. She has to be up at 7am, but instead of climbing beneath the covers, she has decided that she’s going to colour co-ordinate the mugs in her kitchen cupboard at 1am. That person is me, and it’s only recently that I discovered there’s a name for what I’ve been doing for years.

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken appeared in person before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday to answer for President Joe Biden's chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal.    In his opening statement Blinken again blamed US citizens for getting stranded in Afghanistan, repeating that the State Department sent '19 specific messages' to Americans there, urging them to leave. He added the department offered 'financial assistance to pay for plane tickets.'  'Despite this efforts, at the time of the evacuation began, there were still thousands of Americans in Afghanistan - almost all of whom were evacuated by August 31,' the Biden official said.  But after the US wrapped its military withdrawal at the end of August, Blinken revealed that at least 100 Americans had been left behind. On Tuesday Blinken said a 'diplomatic mission' was still in place working to get those people out. In his opening remarks committee chair Sen. Bob Menendez said he was 'very disappointed' Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin declined to testify Tuesday. 'A full accounting of the US response to this crisis is not complete without the Pentagon.

    (CNN)The World Health Organization's vaccine-sharing program COVAX forecasts an additional 1.1 billion Covid-19 vaccine doses will be made available globally between now and the end of the year, fewer than previously estimated.This forecast, released Wednesday, projects 25% fewer doses compared to July's forecast. The new projection prompted a fresh call from WHO for rich countries to hold off on giving boosters until more people around the world can get their first doses of vaccine.Currently, 330 million doses have been released for delivery to underserved countries through COVAX, and 230 million have been delivered to member countries. In what the report calls the "most likely scenario" for vaccine supply through the end of the year, more than a billion more doses will be made available between September and the end of the year. "We expect to have a further 1.1 billion doses available for delivery between now and the end of the year," Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO of GAVI, one of the groups that makes up COVAX, said in a media briefing. Doses will be targeted to 92 lower-income countries. Read...
    (CNN)Earlier this summer, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention made a call to Dr. Eric Rubin, editor in chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, asking him to do something unconventional. She knew his journal was reviewing a CDC study on the Covid-19 vaccine for pregnant women. Traditionally, prestigious publications like his won't publish data if it has already been discussed in the public domain, for fear it will look like old news. Walensky explained to Rubin that the data was of great public health importance, as it could inform pregnant women's decisions about getting vaccinated, Walensky told CNN. CDC wanted to publicly discuss the data before it was published, as publication can take weeks or even longer. These 5 states have less than 10% of ICU beds left as Covid-19 overwhelms hospitalsThe two worked it out, and on August 11, the CDC announced the new data on its website, strengthening its guidance that pregnant women should get vaccinated against Covid-19.

    The US Ambassador to Afghanistan said getting to the airport in Kabul is 'safe' barely two hours before two explosions reportedly killed at least 13 people and injured three members of the US military, likely among others.  Pentagon spokesman John Kirby confirmed both blasts on Twitter.  'We can confirm that the explosion at the Abbey Gate was the result of a complex attack that resulted in a number of US & civilian casualties. We can also confirm at least one other explosion at or near the Baron Hotel, a short distance from Abbey Gate. We will continue to update,' Kirby wrote. The Taliban told Reuters at least 13 people were killed in the airport blast, and children were among those crowding the area.  But around 8 a.m. Eastern on Thursday morning Ross Wilson, the chief diplomat in Kabul, told Good Morning America that it was still possible to get to Hamid Karzai International Airport safely. 'There are safe ways to get here, there are safe ways - relatively safe ways to access the airport, and we're doing everything we can...
    (CNN)Charlie Watts, the unassuming son of a truck driver who gained global fame as the drummer for the Rolling Stones, has died. He was 80. ''It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Charlie Watts. He passed away peacefully in a London hospital earlier today surrounded by his family," his spokesperson said Tuesday in an emailed statement to CNN. "Charlie was a cherished husband, father and grandfather and also as a member of The Rolling Stones one of the greatest drummers of his generation. We kindly request that the privacy of his family, band members and close friends is respected at this difficult time.''The band had announced earlier this month that Watts would miss the band's upcoming "No Filter" tour through North America after undergoing a medical procedure for an unknown condition. This is a developing story and will be updated.
    Lawmakers and others quickly called out President Biden Friday for his White House speech on Afghanistan for not accurately depicting the reality on the ground. Among Biden's claims that were quickly debunked was his assertion that al Qaeda is "gone" from Afghanistan. Just minutes later, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby acknowledged that "there is an al Qaeda presence in Afghanistan," though he said they don't pose a significant threat to the homeland.  Biden also claimed he knows of "no circumstance" where American citizens were blocked from getting to the Kabul airport for evacuation, citing an existing agreement with the Taliban to allow safe passage.  "This a lie," Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., tweeted in response. "My office has received reports of Americans unable to enter the airport." Even Kirby, the Pentagon spokesman, didn't dispute reports that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told lawmakers earlier that some Americans had been beaten by the Taliban in Kabul. Kirby said the Biden administration is "certainly mindful" of these "deeply troubling" reports and the U.S. has told the Taliban it's "absolutely unacceptable."

    THE back-to-school season is starting earlier than ever this year, and many parents have already taken steps to prepare for the fall. A new survey of 2,000 American parents with children ages three to 13 found the average respondent began planning for fall 2021 on June 19. 2Parents revealed that they are getting for the new school years earlier than beforeCredit: Getty - Contributor Typically, it takes 29 days from the end of one school year to begin prepping for the next – but 68 percent of parents are thinking about fall 2021 earlier than they would in a normal year. For those respondents, they started planning for the back-to-school season almost three weeks sooner than they would have before the pandemic. Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Contigo, the study found that summer has been cut short with the back-to-school season starting earlier than ever.  Seven in 10 (71 percent) parents surveyed have already taken steps to prepare to send their children back to school in the fall. Of those, 82% percent said this summer feels shorter than ever. The...
    A recent study of ancient diamonds pointed to a significant situation. Already 2.7 billion years ago, the portal writes that our planet may have been ready for the “explosion” of life MSN Diamonds can act as a time capsule, allowing scientists to explore the past and determine the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere. Volatile gases such as hydrogen, nitrogen, neon or carbon enter the atmosphere from the Earth’s mantle. Diamonds in the mantle can store these gases and reveal the composition of the Earth’s mantle, and So the atmosphere, At the time they were created. Researchers at the French University of Lorraine used diamonds to show that the composition of the atmosphere during the Neuroscience was similar to today. More specifically, these are important items for life. This is carbon and nitrogen, which had a similar presence in today’s atmosphere 2.7 billion years ago. Creatures depend on certain turbulent substances. These substances are found not only on our planet, but also on the planet Venus, Although this planet is not considered habitable.

    Climate change is not to blame for North American migratory birds shrinking in size, a new study claims. Researchers at the University of Michigan analysed more than 70,000 migratory birds that had been collected after they'd collided with buildings since the 1970s. There had been 'statistically significant' reductions in the birds' body size, while their wings had got a bit longer, the team revealed in 2019.  Originally, they'd thought the changes were an evolutionary adaptation to cope with earlier spring migration, triggered by climate change.  But now the team reveal that birds are changing in size and shape independently of changes in their migration timing.     The extent to which physical changes are a cause of climate change 'requires careful examination', they say. Scroll down for video Pictured, some of the specimens held in the collections of the Field Collection, including an eastern meadowlark, far left, and an indigo bunting, far right 'We know that bird morphology has a major effect on the efficiency and speed of flight,' said study author Marketa Zimova, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Michigan.   'So we became curious...
    White House National Climate Adviser Gina McCarthy said it would be “ridiculous” to ask Americans to “sacrifice” for the climate right now, given the uphill battle many face due to the ramifications of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, which battered the economy, leaving many jobless. Speaking on Axios on HBO, McCarthy, who led the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under former President Barack Obama, admitted it is not a good idea, at least right now, to ask Americans to make sacrifices for the climate. “Isn’t the climate emergency immense enough that people should feel pain whereas you’re sort of saying, here’s money, here’s jobs, and we’ll save the planet too?” Axios’s Mike Allen asked. “We’ve had 22 million jobs that have actually been empty because of this pandemic, and now is not the time to sit them down and say, ‘Let’s talk about climate. How can you sacrifice?’ It’s just it’s, it’s never going to be a winning strategy right now. It’s ridiculous,” McCarthy said. “You know the president recognizes that climate change is a problem, and he also recognizes that getting there doesn’t...

Photo by Jared Silber/NHLI via Getty Images The NHL has slapped the New York Rangers with a hefty $250,000 fine after the team blasted the league's Player Safety office for failing to suspend Washington Capitals star Tom Wilson after an incident earlier this week. The team had issued a fiery statement decrying the "horrifying act of violence" from Wilson, in which he pulled down and punched Rangers superstar Artemi Panarin, injuring him for the rest of the season. Wilson was not suspended over the incident and was only fined $5,000 for an earlier incident during the play. This story is developing. Please check back for updates.

    NASA has pushed back the launch of the Ingenuity helicopter's first flight on the Martian surface. Takeoff of the 4-pound (1.8-kilogram) robotic helicopter, currently attached to NASA's Perseverance rover, is now slated for no earlier than April 11.  Deployment of Ingenuity, which has become affectionately known as 'Ginny', had been originally planned for April 8. If successful, Ingenuity will be the first powered and controlled flight of an aircraft on any planet other than Earth.  Ingenuity carries a small amount of fabric that covered one of the wings of the Wright brothers’ aircraft, known as the Flyer, during the first powered, controlled flight on Earth in 1903.  Scroll down for video  In this artist's concept, NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter stands on the Red Planet's surface as NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance rover (partially visible on the left) rolls away. Ingenuity has lowered all four legs but its still under the 'belly' of Perseverance NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory made the announcement on Twitter but didn't give a reason for the slight delay.  MailOnline has contacted NASA for more information.   '#MarsHelicopter is preparing to...

    In this article LULUVIDEO2:4502:45Trading Nation: Lululemon earnings on deck — Here are the predictionsTrading NationLululemon was under pressure after the bell Tuesday. The stock fell more than 1% in extended trading despite a top- and bottom-line beat in its recent quarter. The shares have already fallen 9% this year after riding the athleisure wave to rally 50% in 2020. Matt Maley, chief market strategist at Miller Tabak, said that recent weakness has put the stock in a difficult position. "On a technical basis it has made a lower high followed by a lower low earlier this month so if … we get another lower high, lower low, it's going to be very bearish for the stock," Maley told CNBC's "Trading Nation" earlier Tuesday. "It's a key technical juncture for the stock, and how it trades after these earnings is going to be very important how it trades for all the second quarter." That key level to watch is $285, which corresponds with the closing low set earlier in March, said Maley. "If we break below that, that's going to give...
    New York : Approaches the beginning of spring. Little by little, the days of very cold and late dawns are left behind. Now, you are likely to wake up to the Sun shining very early, which is a reminder that winter time will soon be over. It will be next Sunday, March 14, when at 2 am the so-called daylight saving time officially enters into force in practically the entire United States. Remember before going to bed to advance the clock one hour, in case you still have analog devices, since nowadays, thanks to technology, several gadgets already do it automatically. One of the things that we most resent with the arrival of summer time is that the first day we slept an hour less, and not only that, there is a whole physiological adjustment for the advance of one hour. If you are one of those who have a hard time adjusting to summer time, here are some tips to help you achieve it as soon as possible. Tips to quickly adapt to summer time 1) Prepare in...
    From aged blues to processed American slices, cheese comes in a huge range of forms. While cheesemakers spend years crafting their cheeses, the process still leaves a lot to chance, with some batches ripening for months, or even years, before a problem is discovered.  Now, scientists have developed what they're describing as a 'pregnancy test for cheese', which allows cheesemakers to test the quality of their produce earlier and more precisely.  The team hopes the test could give manufacturers a better chance to react to issues with the ripening process, without wasting any produce. Scientists have developed what they're describing as a 'pregnancy test for cheese', which allows cheesemakers to test the quality of their produce earlier and more precisely (stock image) HOW DOES THE TEST WORK?To develop the test, the team looked at different commercial cheddar cheeses, and applied a type of biological anlaysis known as multi-omics.  Dr Ashfari said: 'Once we knew the unique properties of a finished cheese, we compared them to ripening batches and worked out which compounds distinguished the best cheeses.' The team believes this...
    A previously deported Dominican national pleaded guilty to illegal re-entry into the United States and fentanyl trafficking Wednesday in a federal court in Providence. Franklin Carlos Soto, 33, admitted to selling roughly 50 grams of fentanyl for $2,500 on Jun. 9 and Jun. 18 to an individual whom he would also sell 25 grams of fentanyl on Jun. 25, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release. The U.S. had deported Soto earlier in Aug. 2016 after he was arrested twice for drug trafficking. (RELATED: Biden’s Deportation Freeze Blocked By Trump-Appointed Judge) During the Jun 9. transaction in Soto’s home, the person who bought fentanyl from Soto saw him take the substance from a bigger bag of what is suspected to be fentanyl, according to information brought before the court. Soto also allegedly told the person he had sold 800 grams the day before and allegedly offered to sell crack cocaine when planning for a Jun. 25 fentanyl delivery, according to the DOJ release.

    Anthropologists have pieced together the grisly details of one of the most gruesome encounters between Spanish conquistadors and the Aztecs in late-16th century Mexico. In 2019 archaeologists at a site outside Mexico City uncovered evidence of a slaughter of a European convoy by Aztec villagers—who mutilated and ate their captives, including children and pregnant women. Now researchers have evidence Hernán Cortés ordered a retaliatory raid on the village that proved to be almost as savage. They uncovered the remains of at least a dozen women brutally killed by Cortés' men, even as they tried to protect children as young as 5. Their findings, issued this week by the National Institute of Anthropology and History in Mexico, are the culmination of years of excavation work at Tecoaque, which translates to 'the place where they ate them' in the Aztecs' Nahuatl language. Scroll down for video The bones of native Aztec killed at Tecoaque. Archaologists found the remains of at least 12 adult women at the site, situated in a way that suggests they were protecting children between the ages of 5 and...
