    The Chicago Bears regrouped Wednesday at Halas Hall from their Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers and began preparing for Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans. Along with quarterback Justin Fields’ comments about jump-starting the offense and a social media controversy, here are four things we learned from Bears coach Matt Eberflus and his players. 1. Lucas Patrick practiced without the cast he wore in the first two games. As he continued his recovery from surgery on his right hand, Patrick — whom the Bears signed in the offseason to be their center — wore a club on his hand in Weeks 1 and 2 that prevented him from snapping. So the Bears started Sam Mustipher at center and put Patrick in a right guard rotation with Teven Jenkins. But Patrick was spotted without the cast during the portion of practice open to the media, and he snapped a couple of times. If Patrick can snap the ball consistently, it raises the question of how the Bears will handle those two positions. Eberflus and offensive coordinator Luke Getsy...
    Bill Clinton, 76, said that Republicans are only able to 'close' in midterm elections because 'they scare people' into thinking they need to vote in right-leaning politicians. The former Democratic president said that his party could hold onto the House and Senate in November's election if they 'say the right things' – suggesting that Republicans are better at embellishing to make their cause seem more dire. While early predictions pointed to a Republican bloodbath in the 2022 midterms, more recent polling has shown Democrats and the GOP at a tie or close to one when asked which party likely voters would rather see control Congress. An often-repeated historical pendulum pattern shows Congress flipping to the opposite party than a new president in the midterms two years after they are sworn into office. President Clinton, who was in office from 1993 to 2001, thinks the pattern can be broken this year. 'We could hold both of these houses,' Clinton said to CNN's Fareed Zakaria in a Sunday interview. Former President Bill Clinton said Sunday that Democrats could keep majorities in the...
    The rush of cheers were impossible to miss from second base, even as Jared Young tried to soak in the moment in front of 31,775 fans at Wrigley Field. His two-out double to right field in the bottom of the eighth inning in the Chicago Cubs’ 2-1 win Friday against the Colorado Rockies gave the 27-year-old Canadian his first major-league hit. “That’s probably the loudest building I’ve ever been in,” Young said afterward. “So that was pretty cool. I really enjoyed that. It was a surreal day. “I was 0-for-3, but that’s baseball. I felt like the first couple of at-bats I was like, ‘Oh, I need to I need to do something here.’ But if you press in baseball, it normally doesn’t go your way. So just relax and take it as they come.” Young’s personal cheering section featured 15 friends and family members, most of whom made the trip from his hometown of Prince George, Brisith Columbia. Young, a 15th-round pick of the Cubs in 2017, grinded to get to this point. He reached Triple-A Iowa for the...
    Kyle Shanahan was certain that Jimmy Garoppolo would not be available to the 49ers as a backup quarterback option. For months — if not a year-plus — the Niners’ head coach believed that Garoppolo would be traded. Until Saturday, he expected Garoppolo would be moved before the start of the season, even though no one in the league had shown even an inkling of interest in the quarterback in months. The writing was on the wall. Shanahan refused to read it. He said Tuesday that he believed the chances of Garoppolo sticking with the Niners for another season were “slim to none”. But Garoppolo is back. He will start the season as Lance’s backup. So it’s interesting that Shanahan also provided roughly the same odds to a chance of a quarterback controversy between Lance and Garoppolo forming this upcoming season. In a few months, will we look back at that prediction look equally as foolish?

    After a 21-20 victory over the Cleveland Browns in Saturday’s preseason finale, the Chicago Bears were back at Halas Hall for team meetings Monday. General manager Ryan Poles also began the process of trimming the roster before the 3 p.m. Tuesday deadline to submit an initial 53-man roster. Here’s what we learned Monday in Lake Forest. 1. Dante Pettis has stated a case to be part of the Bears offense. Pettis, a fifth-year veteran, didn’t sign with the Bears until after the draft, agreeing to a one-year, $1.035 million deal that essentially offered him a chance to compete for a job. Now, with the preseason over, he awaits word on whether he’ll have a role. In Saturday’s win in Cleveland, Pettis recorded three catches for 37 yards, snagging a 12-yard touchdown pass from Justin Fields in the second quarter. Two weeks earlier, his 25-yard catch from Trevor Siemian converted a fourth-and-2. “An opportunity was presented and he’s gone out and taken it by the horns,” offensive coordinator Luke Getsy said. “He has … the flexibility to play multiple positions. He’s...
    The Chicago Bears continued to test Teven Jenkins at right guard Tuesday during their final practice before Thursday’s preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. One day after getting second-team reps at the position, Jenkins took first-team reps there as the Bears try to find the right combination for their offensive line. Before and after practice, coach Matt Eberflus, offensive line coach Chris Morgan and left guard Cody Whitehair talked about Jenkins’ move from tackle and several other topics. Here are four things we heard. 1. Morgan thinks Jenkins has the attributes to excel at guard. The Bears have stressed the need to get their five best offensive linemen on the field as they tinker with different options. Rookie Braxton Jones is getting an extended look at left tackle, and Riley Reiff and Larry Borom have split reps at right tackle — and can play on either side. So Jenkins’ best bet to earn a roster spot might be showing the versatility to play guard and tackle. The Bears have other options too. Veteran Michael Schofield started at right guard in...
    After a Pro Bowl season last year with the Seattle Seahawks, Duane Brown had opportunities to join an established, contending team this offseason. So why did the veteran left tackle decide to sign a two-year, $22 million contract with the rebuilding New York Jets? “They have a lot of young talent, a lot of potential,” Brown said during his introductory press conference Tuesday. “Myself and Coach [Robert] Saleh worked together in Houston early in our careers and I just watched him when he was in San Francisco and I was in Seattle and I always had a lot of respect for him. “When he came here, guys on the team just talked about how great he was and how hard they wanted to play for him. I like the culture he was building and there’s a lot of potential. “What I bring in terms of my ability and a veteran presence, I feel like we can do some great things.” Whatever the reasoning behind Brown’s decision to sign with the Jets, the team desperately needs him. Starting right tackle Mekhi...
    BREAKING up is never easy, but there are some nicer ways to go about dumping someone. Language experts from US-based language learning app Preply have spoken to the Daily Mail revealing the things you should never say when ending a relationship, and the alternatives you can use. 1The language experts at Preply have shared the things you should and shouldn't say when breaking up with someoneCredit: Getty Don't say: I don't think this is going to work out This is a rather vague statement, and is one that no one in a relationship wants to hear. One problem with saying this is that it’s not explicit in stating that the relationship is over, nor does it acknowledge any of the happy times you presumably shared with one another. The experts recommend instead saying: “I value the time we've spent together, but right now a romantic relationship is not the best for us, and I think we should break up.” MORE IN SEX & RELATIONSHIPSFAMILY FEUDS My boyfriend invited me to his family's holiday home & expected me to pay £300NO...
    New Los Angeles Lakers head coach Darvin Ham is staying on message in regards to Russell Westbrook, emphasizing his talents ahead of the 2022-23 season. As the 2021-22 NBA season unfolded, Lakers fans looked about as who was to blame for the 33-49 season. Former head coach Frank Vogel took the fall as he was unceremoniously fired from his position, while LeBron James and Russell Westbrook — two players who harbored criticism for Westbrook’s trade and poor performance — remained on the roster. This is to say that the disappointing season was a convergence of factors, some outside of anyone’s control (such as Anthony Davis’ absence due to injury), but Vogel bore the brunt of the blame. And as he watched the Lakers last season, current head coach Darvin Ham saw ways in which he would coach this roster if he had the opportunity. At Summer League, Ham opened up about what he saw in Westbrook and how he hopes to mold him for a future in Los Angeles. Darvin Ham: “I’m excited as hell to have Russell Westbrook on...
    The exterior of the Marriner S. Eccles Federal Reserve Board Building is seen in Washington, D.C., June 14, 2022.Sarah Silbiger | Reuters After years of being a beacon for financial markets, the Federal Reserve suddenly finds itself second-guessed as it tries to navigate the economy through a wicked bout of inflation and away from ever-darkening recession clouds. Complaints around the Fed have a familiar tone, with economists, market strategists and business leaders weighing in on what they feel is a series of policy mistakes. Essentially, the complaints center on three themes for actions past, present and future: That the Fed didn't act quickly enough to tame inflation, that it isn't acting aggressively enough now even with a series of rate increases, and that it should have been better at seeing the current crisis coming. "They should have known inflation was broadening and becoming more entrenched," said Quincy Krosby, chief equity strategist at LPL Financial. "Why haven't you seen this coming? This shouldn't have been a shock. That, I think is a concern. I don't know if it's as stark a...

Mikel Arteta - who was furious in his post-match interview - made a few errors in his selection process.

    After a two-week strength and conditioning program, the Chicago Bears on Tuesday took to the practice field at Halas Hall for the first time under new coach Matt Eberflus. Eberflus said he saw “great execution” as the team opened the three-day voluntary minicamp, which the NFL allows for teams with new coaches. Eberflus kept his offense and defense separate Tuesday as the units got their plays and calls down, but he said they will do some 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 work Wednesday. “A lot of times you’ll see other things that don’t show (great execution), like snaps that are dropped, guys jumping offsides, defensively guys missing their assignments,” he said. “I saw really good execution today. That’s a tribute to them paying attention to what we’re trying to do, offense, defense and kicking.” Along with Justin Fields’ work with Eberflus and new offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, here are three things we learned Tuesday. 1. Eberflus stressed there was ‘no concern’ when asked about the absence of safety Eddie Jackson and others. Jackson was among the most notable absence Tuesday from a...
    Rafael Ortega’s baseball journey has endured plenty of challenges, taking him to seven major-league organizations with 11 years between his big-league debut and playing for the Chicago Cubs. Among all the highs and lows, Ortega had never experienced the excitement that comes with being on a major-league team for opening day — until Thursday. Ortega was not a lock to make the Cubs out of camp with six outfielders on the 40-man roster. But expanded rosters, no minor-league options and slugging off right-handers last season helped Ortega make the opening-day roster — and with it a career first. Ortega’s wife and two children watched him hit leadoff as the designated hitter Thursday in a 5-4 win against the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field. “I was working for that for years and years to have the opportunity to make the opening-day roster,” Ortega told the Tribune. “Finally I get the opportunity to, and it’s never too late. It’s never too late to make a dream come true.” Nine Cubs experienced their first opening day: Ortega, third baseman Patrick Wisdom, right fielder...
    As more and more theater companies re-emerge from their long pandemic hiatuses, at least two Bay Area stage are starting up again now with “La Cage aux Folles.” Alameda’s Altarena Playhouse begins its first live season in two years with a production of “La Cage,” while San Jose Playhouse is performing the musical at 3Below Theaters in downtown San Jose. In a sense it’s San Jose Playhouse’s debut production, or at least its first show since Guggenheim Entertainment rebranded its live theater productions under that name in 2021. Like many theaters, both companies had some false starts with shows postponed or canceled due to COVID in the meantime. The 1983 musical is about a middle-aged gay couple — Georges, the proprietor of a drag nightclub, and Albin, its star attraction — who reluctantly scramble to hide their relationship when their adult son Jean-Michel brings his new fiancée and her ultra-conservative parents home to meet them. The plan is for drag diva Albin to pretend to be an uncle, but he suddenly opts to pose as the mom instead. With songs...
    The NFL’s owners meetings are continuing this week in South Florida, with owners, head coaches and executives gathered to discuss league business. For the Chicago Bears, it’s also another step in their latest reboot effort as new general manager Ryan Poles and coach Matt Eberflus push to steer the franchise in a winning direction. Poles spoke with Bears reporters Monday afternoon. It was his first question-and-answer session since the scouting combine, and he had a lot to address after a flurry of moves in free agency this month. While the Bears’ attempt to make a big splash with the signing of defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi ultimately came up empty, Poles has remained active in adding pieces to the roster while retaining a level of patience and discipline that he hopes will set the team up for a brighter future. Here are three things we learned from the new GM on Monday. 1. Poles remains confident in his decision to trade Khalil Mack to the Los Angeles Chargers. In his first public comments about the trade, Poles acknowledged the difficulty in...

    Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles touched on a wide range of topics during his news conference this week at the NFL scouting combine. Along with supporting the growth of quarterback Justin Fields and valuing the second and third waves of free agency, here are four other things we learned from Poles as he prepares to rework the Bears roster. 1. Poles wants the Bears offensive line to get quicker and lighter. Poles has a long list of decisions to make on the offensive line, including what he envisions for 2021 rookies Teven Jenkins and Larry Borom and whether the Bears will re-sign guard James Daniels. He didn’t get into specifics on those players — declining to say what position he expects Jenkins to play. But when asked about his evaluation of the unit, he indicated changes are ahead. “The message has been clear — we’ve got to change body types a little bit,” Poles said. “We’ve got to get lighter, we’ve got to get quicker. Through that, I think there’s some young talent that just needs to be pressed....

I wish more effort was put into aiding the victims of burglaries and violence than box-ticking politically correct initiatives. On Dame Cressida’s watch, the force has played politics while the public lost faith that the Met were arresting the bad guys. The crime statistics speak for themselves.

    Merrick Garland faced up to some of the most critical and divisive issues facing America on Wednesday afternoon. In an address to his Department of Justice colleagues that was broadcast live to the country, he said he understood the urgency around Jan. 6 with a measured delivery that could be seen either as appropriately dispassionate or worrisomely listless. But the punchline in either case remains the same. Garland promises to do the right thing when it comes to holding the powerful accountable for their attacks on our democracy—and we are just going to have to wait and see if the Department of Justice’s actions live up to the attorney general’s carefully chosen words. Garland clearly understands the threats American democracy faces. While he still appeared to be more jurist than the head of America’s largest law enforcement agency, he nonetheless made his contempt clear for those behind the Jan. 6 attack, for the escalating threats of violence to American officials at every level of government, and for the systematic attacks on voting rights that have been going on for years....
    From a matter of perspective, USC’s process to find new head coach Lincoln Riley did not begin in September with the firing of Clay Helton. It started two years earlier, soon after Mike Bohn was hired away from Cincinnati to be USC’s new athletic director. Bohn and chief of staff Brandon Sosna sat down for their first meetings with Helton and his assistants. Many USC fans at the time wished that the coaching staff had been relieved of its duties there and then. But Bohn and Sosna had a question instead. What do you need? USC had fallen woefully behind other college football blue bloods in infrastructure, from recruiting staff to nutrition specialists to strength staff. Sosna wrote the coaches’ answers on a Post-It and placed it on his new desk. He and Bohn went to work putting checks next to those items, making sure Helton had the resources to do the job before deciding to look for someone else to do it. “We’ve all observed a number of programs that seem to believe that...
    RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Only once in his career has Bobby Wagner lost seven games in a regular season. It came in 2017 when the Seattle Seahawks finished 9-7 and missed the playoffs for the only time in his career. It’s not even December and the Seahawks already have seven losses, creating a strange situation for a team that’s become so accustomed to success. It’s also why Wagner was among the veterans who spoke in a team meeting earlier this week with the message to the younger players of not giving up on the season despite Seattle’s 3-7 record. “When you’re in a situation like this people are going to look at your leaders, and so if your leaders don’t believe then what’s the point in a team believing?” Wagner said. “I think it was just important to express the confidence that we have, the belief that we have. “We’ve had some crazy stuff happen over my years in the league, and the only way that happens it starts with your mind, starts with what you...
    Three things the New York Jets did right in their pre-bye slate Geoff Magliocchetti October 12, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The 2021 New York Jets’ early victories go beyond the single tally they’ve earned on the scoreboard so far. Fresh off a visit to London that was anything but a vacation, the 2021 New York Jets embark on a new holiday: their bye week. The Jets (1-4) are one of four teams that will take Week 6 off, setting off the NFL’s bye week slates and countless roster adjustments in fantasy football. New York returns to action on Oct. 24 against the New England Patriots (1 p.m. ET, CBS). Traditional pessimism has surrounded the one-win Jets: rookie quarterback Zach Wilson has thrown a league-worst nine interceptions, the usage…or lack thereof…of young guns Denzel Mims and Elijah Moore has stirred debate, and the playoffs already seem to be a pipe dream. At one win, the Jets have little hope in catching the mighty Buffalo Bills...
    Tyson Fury talked to the media via a Zoom call a little over a week until his third bout against Deontay Wilder. Here’s what the WBC champ had to say.  Tyson Fury hasn’t fought since February 2020. He thrashed Deontay Wilder on that night for the round 7 TKO and the WBC heavyweight title. After a year out of the ring, questions swirl about Fury’s fitness and preparedness going up against a seething Wilder who’s hungry for revenge. Fury answered those questions like a pro during his Sept. 29 media call ahead of his Oct. 9 bout with Wilder. His wit and confidence were on full display, and Fury allayed fears that his spirit and physical fitness have deteriorated. “I’m very motivated, focused, and determined, and I can’t wait for Oct. 9,” said Fury in his opening statement of the media call. “I wish it was this weekend.” Fury continued, “I’ve never had a bad training camp, and I’m in the best shape of my life.

    The following content is sponsored by the Palm Beach Letter.  Many financial experts see cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum as this decade’s must-have investment, and the blockchain technology powering the crypto market is poised to transform the financial world. What should the average investor know to keep up with these trends and maximize their potential? To get answers, Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow spoke again with crypto investment expert Teeka Tiwari, whose PickoftheDecade.com presentation and Palm Beach Letter provide investors with the tools they need to navigate this new asset class. In his discussions with Breitbart News, Tiwari explained these nine facts about crypto and the blockchain that every informed investor should know. 1. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum rely on blockchain technology that is decentralized, transparent, and virtually un-hackable. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum could not exist without the blockchain, which Tiwari describes as “a computer code that can verify transactions in a way that is not hackable.” “The blockchain is designed in a way to make it tamper proof. It’s a way to store data,” he said. “When something is on...
    I had to be sure. So I did my homework. Again and again and again. Yes, I'm pretty good with data, but this was literally life and death we were talking about. Was this going to be about science or the most cynical rabbit hole of my entire career? We know the answer now, and it was almost always cynicism for the win. So much so that more than a year and a half into this grift, we are now being told that the vaccine obviously works so well that it still doesn't really protect anyone unless the unvaccinated are sent to leper colonies and masks are made great again. You know, one plus one equals cucumber. Science! Oh, and don't forget this part, because it is very, very important: Sweden doesn't exist. There is another storyline currently in the news, though, that serves as a Rosetta stone for how the entire COVID-19 storyline was largely inevitable. Far more self-evident in its deceit, it has been plaguing us as a culture at nearly every institutional and philosophical level long before...

    SAITAMA, Japan (AP) — Time would solve many problems for the U.S. men’s basketball team right now. A few practices to develop chemistry and figure out exactly how these roster pieces fit together would do wonders. It’s not happening. There is no time. Or, more accurately, this is the time. The U.S. men have two games left in group play at the Tokyo Olympics — Wednesday against Iran and Saturday against the Czech Republic — to figure whatever needs to be figured out. An opening loss to France on Sunday didn’t seem to surprise the French much, and in a more ominous sign, didn’t seem to surprise the Americans that much either. “This is the time for us to really hone in, lock in,” U.S. center Bam Adebayo said after the 83-76 defeat at the hands of the French. He’s right. The game against Iran — FanDuel says the Americans are 37.5-point favorites — on Wednesday should be a way to build some momentum, going into what could very easily be a win-or-go-home game against the Czechs. Win both, and...
    There is a humanitarian and national security crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, but you won’t hear it from President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris. The president and vice president are refusing to take responsibility for creating the disaster at the southern border.  Despite what the mainstream media may tell you, Biden’s far-left, open-door immigration policies are encouraging tens of thousands of migrants to enter the United States illegally. While the president created the crisis, it was Harris – who Biden handpicked to lead the response to the crisis – who only recently visited the southern border, more than 90 days after she assumed her "border czar" role. When the vice president finally did bother to travel to Texas, she barely stayed long enough to get completely briefed on the crisis. She failed to talk to the ranchers or visit with Border Patrol agents along the Rio Grande Valley who are negatively impacted by Biden’s border crisis.  LARRY ELDER: VICE PRESIDENT HARRIS, WHEN WILL YOU TALK ABOUT THE ‘ROOT CAUSE’ OF HOMICIDES IN OUR CITIES? It's no wonder Congressman...
    A real loyal soldier, right up to the point where it looked like Trump's crew truly intended to topple government In The Atlantic, journalist Jonathan Karl gives us a short look at Trump attorney general William Barr's last weeks in power according to William Barr himself, who was kind enough to grace Karl with a series of interviews out of the innate goodness of his heart. Oh, and because Barr is now seen by many as the most thoroughly partisan and corrupt attorney general in a generation, which is going to seriously cut down on future speaking fees if he can't figure out how to massage the record back into something vaguely defensible. The actual news out of it is Not Damn Much, but this is a good opportunity to revisit the First Rule Of News Consumption: Be aware of the source. From the nation's top powerbrokers to man-on-the-street interviewees, anyone talking to a reporter about their own doings is going to tell that reporter the most flattering version of events they think they can get away with. Many of...
    DEAR ABBY: I have been in a relationship with a married man for 2½ years. I know it’s wrong, but there’s just something there between us. Jeanne Phillips  We live five hours apart; he’s a trucker, so I see him often. He makes me all these promises — that if I uproot my life and move to his city he would be able to be with me more, his wife is sick and he can’t leave her that way, and he has never loved someone the way he loves me. We also have a 30-year age difference. I love him but I see so many red flags. Does he really love me, or am I just the icing on his cake?

    (CNN)As many of us excitedly toss off our masks, freshly vaccinated (or freshly faking being vaccinated), and in a hurry to get back to "normal," there is something decidedly "not normal" going on. We're in an era of historic job loss, and yet there are jobs available. Except it looks like no one wants them.These are the kind of jobs that usually aren't hard to fill ... or at least the kind of jobs that people have no other choice but to take. I'm talking about fast-food gigs, and the entry-level positions that traditionally can fill quickly with just a "Help Wanted" sign. But right now, so few people seem interested in these types of roles that IHOP hosted a "National Recruiting Day" in many locations, and Taco Bell made it easier for applicants to interview from their car. A McDonald's in Florida is said to have even offered people $50 -- not as a "hiring bonus," but just to show up for the interview.The problem, as we talk about on tonight's episode of "United Shades of America," has to...
    Mets opt to play things safe and will send Jacob deGrom to the injured list Andres Chavez May 10, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditAfter leaving his last start with soreness in his right side, Jacob deGrom was scheduled for another MRI to dismiss the possibility of any serious damage. While doctors did not find anything of note in the test, the New York Mets decided to play things safe and will place their ace on the 10-day injured list. The Mets are calling the injury as “right side discomfort”, and while they were initially hopeful he could avoid the injured list, they are prioritizing long-term health and giving their best starter a break, per Anthony DiComo of the team official site. The stint on the IL could last only one start, but the Mets won’t know more until days go by and they see how the pitcher is feeling. The Mets’ starter is eligible to return from the injured list on May 21. The Mets will miss deGrom this week He was able to...
