    Last week, during California’s worst September heat wave on record, Akvile DeFazio noticed the squirrels in her La Verne neighborhood acting weird: “just plastered on the sidewalk,” she said, not moving. “It was just really bizarre behavior I hadn’t seen before,” DeFazio said. “I’ve seen squirrels all of my life, and I’ve never seen squirrels splat down like that.” At first, she said, she worried they could be sick, so she kept her distance. But a few days later while scrolling Twitter, she saw an article about the phenomenon that’s become known as “splooting,” a way squirrels and some other animals sprawl out to stay cool when temperatures rise. “Bears do it, squirrels do it, rabbits do it, dogs [too],” said Daniel Blumstein, a professor at UCLA’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. “They get really flat when they’re trying to shed heat.” People across California became fascinated by squirrels “splooting” during the unprecedented heat wave, sharing pictures and videos online of the animals on sidewalks or backyard patios. And recent interest in the rodents’ behavior has...
    ANTHONY JOSHUA has declared he is going to "smash" Oleksandr Usyk in their upcoming rematch. The pair fought for the WBO, IBF and WBA titles last September, with Usyk's aggressive style throwing AJ off course and allowing him to claim a points victory against the odds. 3Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua face off ahead of their fight in Jeddah on SaturdayCredit: Getty 3Usyk won three belts from Joshua went they fought in SeptemberCredit: Getty 3 ????AJ vs Usyk 2 confirmed fight time, TV and live stream info for Saturday's blockbuster This time around though Joshua has vowed to ditch the cautious approach and "smash" his opponent when he enters the ring on Saturday.

    A PARCHED man who nearly died after glugging water to cool down in a heatwave is warning others not to repeat his mistake. Adam Schaub was working in 37C heat when he decided to take a break from the scorching climes. 1Adam glugged two bottles of ice-cold water before sitting in an air-conditioned cab before horror struckCredit: Facebook / Adam Schaub He glugged two ice-cold bottles of water and then sat in an air conditioned truck cab.

    A TEACHER has revealed some of the things that she'd never do to her own kids' teacher. she took to TikTok to explain why they are and why they're a big no-no from a teacher's perspective. 2The teacher shared the things she'd avoid doing on TikTokCredit: tiktok/@antisocialstudies Posting on the account @antisocialstudies, the teacher jokingly captioned the video, "I solemnly vow never to be that parent." The first thing that isn't going to go down well is to "request a meeting or a phone call without clearly giving a reason for it, or the topic that's going to be discussed." She explained that this strikes fear into the heart of every teacher, "It's just like when you boss emails like 'hey can we chat in a few hours?'

    A WOMAN has claimed a lifeguard fell in love with her whilst soaking up the sun abroad - but people are all saying something else. When flying overseas, most people expect to relax, bask in the sun, try exotic cuisines and of course - take Instagram-worthy snaps. 5Chloe shared snaps of the two on social media, where the video has gone viralCredit: tiktok 5Although trolls are convinced the bloke is after a passport, the woman is convinced it's true romanceCredit: tiktok But for one holiday-goer, Chloe King, the family trip to Lanzarote, one of the Canary islands, resulted in a blissful romance after a lifeguard fell head over heels for the blonde.

    A Rochester police officer is on desk duty after he was caught on camera forcefully handcuffing an emergency medical technician who’d reportedly bumped his squad car with her ambulance door just outside a hospital. According to News 10 Rochester, the Monroe Ambulance EMT was attempting to unload a patient in the ambulance bay area at Strong Memorial Hospital when she hit the cop’s car. The officer then demanded the EMT give him her identification, but the health-care worker was more concerned about getting the patient inside the hospital for treatment, the report says. In a video of the incident obtained by News 10, the EMT can be seen standing next to a colleague at the hospital check-in desk with the patient on a stretcher. The investigator, who is wearing a red shirt, then rushes toward the EMT, pushing her into a wall before handcuffing her and escorting her out of the hospital. The medical worker was ultimately released from custody without charges being filed. In a statement released Friday on Facebook, Monroe Ambulance said the EMT made the correct...

    Two teenagers in a vehicle packed with migrants were apprehended after a high speed chase in Texas on Monday. A 16-year-old boy was driving a stolen Ford F 150 pickup on Texas Highway 97 and refused to stop when he was instructed to do so by U.S. Border Patrol agents and LaSalle County deputies, Atascosa County Sheriff David Soward said.

    Neil Cavuto told his Fox News audience on Tuesday that the day’s Jan. 6 committee hearings made former President Donald Trump “look awful.” Reporter Chad Pergram summarized the proceedings and recalled that Trump and his team had leaned on various Republican officials to change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, which he lost. Trump has baselessly stated the election was rigged against him. Among those officials was Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers, who told the committee: “I said, ‘You’re asking me to do something that’s never been done in the history of the United States, and I’m going to put my state through that without sufficient proof?'” Pergram explained how the Trump campaign even attempted to send fraudulent slates of electors to then-Vice President Mike Pence, who presided over the certification of the election. Cavuto turned to Thomas Dupree, who served in the Department of Justice under President George W. Bush. “Tom, you’re a lawyer and a great one,” Cavuto began. “And I’m not, but this just seems to make Donald Trump look awful. Just awful.” Dupree said the...
    NFL's first transgender cheerleader has opened up about coming out to her family and battling anxiety and depression as a teen - after she was ostracized from her classmates. Justine Lindsay, 29, made history when she joined the cheerleading squad for the Carolina Panthers - called the TopCats - back in March. At the time, the professional dancer said she was proud to take on the mantle, explaining to Buzzfeed News, 'I think more people need to see this. It's not because I want recognition. It's to shed light on what's going on in this world.' She may be comfortable in her skin now, but growing up wasn't easy for Justine, who revealed in an episode of her podcast that she was 'socially awkward' and struggled to 'fit in' with her peers during childhood. Justine - who hails from the Southeast part of America, but hasn't specified which city or state - admitted that she 'battled a lot within herself' including 'a really bad stage' of anxiety and depression as a teen, while 'trying to figure out who she was as a person'...
    This week I cried, staring at a flag of many colors as it was hefted high above my New England town, flying just below the star-spangled one that both unites and divides us. Ours is a banner arranged in stripes and angles that represent the wide-ranging rainbow population; I eschew the word “community” because, for me at least, we do not function as one. I knew I would cry, because the freedoms I enjoy in my blue state bubble are swiftly becoming the exception rather than the rule for transgender Americans like me. I joined Twitter exactly 14 years ago today, and if it were not for tweets from leaders like Gillian Branstetter at the ACLU and writer/activist Charlotte Clymer, I’d go out of my mind. “For the last two weeks, anti-trans terrorists shut down a [Wisconsin] town—including all schools—with bomb threats, demanding the school district close a Title IX investigation into anti-trans harassment by today,” Branstetter tweeted this morning. “Last night, the school closed the investigation.” She’s been documenting this story while the national media has turned a blind...
    Live from Music Row Monday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed Congressman Tim Burchett (R-TN-02) to the newsmaker line to talk about his opposition to the $40 billion Ukraine aid package and the dwindling support of the Democratic Party. Leahy: We are joined now on our newsmaker line by our friend, Congressman Tim Burchett from the Second Congressional District, Tennessee, up there in the Knoxville area. Good morning, Congressman Burchett. Burchett: We like to call it God’s country, but you can call it Knoxville. I’m wrestling dogs this morning, so if they get a little crazy, I apologize. Leahy: I stand corrected. You’re quite right. It is God’s country. Of course, the entire state of Tennessee, in my view, is God’s country. And Tennessee has led the way in opposition to this $40 billion aid package to Ukraine without an inspector general. You were one of four members of the House delegation who voted against that along...
    Republicans are happy to make life hard, if not impossible, for anyone who doesn’t agree with them. Especially so if you’re someone they’re explicitly stomping down on, like trans folks, people of color, and anyone seeking an abortion. Because that’s, apparently, what freedom looks like to conservatives trying to take over this country. Perhaps one of the most surreal glimpses into Republican hysteria comes to us in the form of book bans. Conservatives are really, really obsessed with trying to get any remotely inclusive or diverse book out of public school classrooms and libraries, especially so if those books are written by or about people of color and LGBTQ+ people. While book bans and the “critical race theory” (CRT) hysteria are technically separate battles, they’re pretty obviously connected. And librarians are already paying the price. The Texas Tribune did a deep-dive interview with several librarians in Texas facing book bans in a Republican-ruled state and to put it simply, things are looking bleak.

    In a plea deal, county prosecutors have agreed to drop felony gun charges against Bay Area rapper A-Wax in exchange for a no-contest plea to a misdemeanor accessory charge that stemmed from a 2020 raid on his Pittsburg recording studio. A-Wax, whose real name is Aaron Doppie, said in an interview with the Bay Area News Group that the charge he pleaded was “basically admitting I didn’t have adequate security at my studio” and that an unidentified person brought a gun there. Doppie has for years denied that either of the guns found during the police raid belonged to him. His attorney told this news organization that a DNA test from one of the weapons excluded Doppie as a contributor, while no DNA was found on the other one. “Honestly I didn’t want to take any charge for it. I didn’t do anything wrong so I just wanted to let the evidence see itself through,” Doppie said in a May interview at his recording studio. “But at the end of the day …  it’s easier for me to focus on...
    Many couples trying for a baby turn to technology to work out the ‘perfect’ window in which to conceive. But instead they should just focus on having sex every other day, according to a leading fertility expert. Women have increasingly been using trendy phone apps and test kits to ‘track’ when they are ovulating – releasing an egg. This has raised concerns that focusing on ovulation may mean they neglect having sex at other times. Professor Adam Balen, former chairman of the British Fertility Society, told the Daily Mail: ‘Couples should ideally be having sex every other day to maximise their chances of having a baby. Many couples trying for a baby turn to technology to work out the ‘perfect’ window in which to conceive (stock image) ‘If men do not have sex regularly, older sperm building up in their body can release chemicals which may cause other sperm to die.’ He added: ‘Women sometimes get too hung up on ovulation, wait only for that day to have sex, and do it less often as a result.’ Professor Balen, an...
    Costs are going to be even more out of control for many, as long COVID sets in. The Biden administration has been working hard to make the Affordable Care Act, and health insurance in general, work better. They’ve lowered premium payments all the way down to zero for many people in Obamacare (a measure that needs to be passed again before the November election to avoid a bad October surprise of premium hike notifications). They’ve implemented the regulations to end surprise billing for people with insurance, and they’ve worked with credit reporting agencies to get them to stop reporting medical debt. They’re getting rid of the family glitch in the ACA that has made insurance too expensive for many families. Earlier this week, Vice President Kamala Harris announced new efforts from the White House to ease the burden of unpaid medical bills. “I have met so many people in so many communities in our nation who are struggling with this burden. Many of whom are managing an illness or an injury at the same time and who stay up at night, staring at the ceiling wondering...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — California is leading the way, looking into what restitution might look like for descendants of slaves. The state’s appointed reparations task force met Wednesday in person for the first time since its inaugural meeting last year. The gathering at San Francisco’s historic Third Baptist Church concluded the first of two days of meetings with an emotional call to make reparations a reality. READ MORE: Update: Massive Fire Engulfs Salinas Food Processing Plant; Neighborhoods Evacuated“Everybody in here is a part of history,” Chris Lodgson of the Coalition for a Just and Equitable California, a reparations advocacy group, said before the meeting. “I couldn’t be more excited and blessed, really, to be here.” In a dramatic vote last month, the task force split 5-4 to limit reparations to people who can show they are descended from enslaved or free Black people in the U.S. as of the 19th century. Those who favor broader eligibility says lineage-based reparations unfairly shuts out Black people who have also suffered systemic discrimination. But Josiah Williams, a member of the Coalition...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tore into Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill during her Monday news briefing, accusing them of acting in bad faith when attacking the Biden administration for the crisis at the southwest border. It comes as some Democrats in Congress have begun to break from the party line and join virtually every Republican in opposition to President Joe Biden allowing a pandemic-era expulsion policy, Title 42, to expire on May 23. During her press briefing, Psaki acknowledged the immigration system was 'broken' months after Biden's first year in office saw at least 1.78 million border encounters between Customs and Border Patrol agents and migrants. But she said Republicans in Congress were attempting to 'politicize' it and exploit the crisis rather than work to find meaningful solutions. Various polls have consistently shown Americans are mostly dissatisfied with how Biden handles immigration. It has been a pillar of Republicans' bid to retake the Congressional majority in November's midterm elections.   'It has been a longstanding open invitation -- any Republican who wants to work with us on immigration reform,...

    Midway through the third quarter of Saturday’s loss to the Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso asked coach Billy Donovan to take him out of the game. Caruso has been nursing tightness and soreness in his back for more than a week, which he attributes to his seven-week layoff due to a fractured wrist suffered in January. He wore a heat pack on the sideline during breaks in several games last week to stave off muscle spasms. But on Saturday, the pain elevated to a level he couldn’t play through. “It started creeping up a little bit into my middle back and my shoulder blade,” Caruso said Monday. “I was at the point where I needed to sit down because if I got hit again, it would be pretty painful.” Losing Caruso — even for a matter of minutes — is a major blow to the Bulls, who rely on the defensive specialist for perimeter pressure. As the team’s defense has slipped during the second half of the season, Caruso’s importance has been heightened while fellow guard Lonzo Ball...
    CNN’s Abby Phillip is calling out the White House for trying to blame soaring gas prices on Vladimir Putin and the conflict in Ukraine. Phillip’s remark came during an Inside Politics Sunday discussion about the economy at large. President Joe Biden and others in the administration have touted various positive economic indicators such as job and wage growth. But on the CNN panel Sunday, Axios political reporter Hans Nichols argued that the White House cannot escape the fact that gas prices are currently soaring. “When inflation is where it’s at, when you see gas prices going where it’s at, we can talk about a jobs report here, we can talk about the latest PCE [personal consumption expenditures] numbers or the CPI [consumer price index], and all of us former Bloomberg reporters can really get into the weeds, right?” Nichols said. “But there’s one number that they can’t really change right now. And that is what the placard says at the local gas station.” Phillip agreed, and noted that the White House tag line for the week was the “Putin price...
    'We just want Lia to hold the fifth-place trophy' “I just want you to know that we respect you and admire your swim so much, but we just want Lia to hold the fifth-place trophy,” Gaines recalled the official telling her, the outlet said. Gaines noted to the Daily Wire that she then told the official, "I don’t think that’s that’s right, and I don’t think that’s fair. There’s no dispute that only one of us can hold the trophy, but I think given the circumstances, you’re just trying to save face a little bit." With that Gaines stood on the podium next to a biological man who identifies as a woman — and who took center stage from yet another biological female athlete. “It was a bit disheartening,” Gaines told the outlet. “It really was. I left the pool with no trophy. Not a big deal, but it was the goal that I had set all year.” She asked the Daily Wire, "Who are we trying to protect here? And who are...
    War is very good for some political leaders. Especially if they don't have to fight but can act 'concerned' from the side-lines knowing that they are not going to put voters lives at risk or face the humiliation of losing. War is a chance to build popularity with voters by promoting yourself as a tough politician who will do anything to stop bloodshed. And in the modern age, you do that through social media. One man shamelessly exploiting the hideous situation in Ukraine is President Macron of France, facing a tough Presidential election next month. He's fighting ambitious challengers from the far-right like Marine Le Pen and Eric Zemmour and every vote counts. Macron's popularity has risen a bit since the invasion of Ukraine, but how to improve it? The French President has opted for a total image revamp - nothing less. Out go the suits and in comes designer stubble and pseudo military branding. Pictures taken at the Élysée Palace last Sunday show a new macho Emmanuel Macron Overnight neat and tidy mini-Macron has morphed from clean-cut bank manager...
    TikTok star Addison Rae is being ridiculed on social media for releasing a face mist that purports to protect skin from the blue light emitted from screens - just a few months after another influencer had to cancel similar products due to backlash. ITEM Beauty By Addison Rae says its Screen Break Blue Light + Anti Pollution Protection Mist was designed to guard and relieve the skin from the blue light that comes from cell phones, computers, and TVs.  But while the 21-year-old has amassed an incredible 86.6 million TikTok followers, Twitter user are not quite so impressed by the product launch. Many have been quick to point out that another influencer, streamer Valkyrae, debuted something similar last year - and almost immediately had to pull it after critics called it a 'scam,' insisting that there is limited evidence that blue light is even harmful to skin in the first place. Now social media users are lobbing the same criticism at Addison, accusing her of 'lying' to fans and somehow missing the memo from Valkyrae's scandal just months earlier.  Addison...
    A couple of weeks ago, if anybody had asked me to describe what sort of person I am on an emotional level, I would have used words like: balanced, confident, upbeat. Today, having scrutinised my moods for a week, I would have to scrap the above in favour of: irritable, miserable, old boot. Why? Because according to my ‘emotional wheel’, my feelings are more negative than positive and words like ‘rage, annoyance and loathing’ seem to appear far more often than they should when I keep a mood diary. To put it frankly, on paper, I look like someone I’d actively cross the street to avoid. For the past week, I have been keeping track of my feelings with the aid of Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions. This was invented by American psychologist Dr Robert Plutchik in 1980 but is very much back in vogue.

    A dog who went missing for five years has given birth to a 'miracle' puppy, leaving the owner 'desperate' to keep both animals. Jen Costa, 37, from Queens, was devastated when her English Bulldog Azzurra Diamante, disappeared from her car at a gas station in Nassau County, Long Island, in 2016, while she was getting treatment for tongue cancer. After Azzurra went missing, Jen said she put up flyers and called the police, animal shelters, and vets - but everything was a 'dead end.'  But the pair had a happy reunion after a kind stranger found the dog last October in Henderson, Tennessee - a staggering 1,000 miles from where she went missing - and contacted a local shelter. Staff at Henderson Animal Control scanned Azzurra Diamante's microchip and got in touch with Jen to let her know they had the animal in their care.

    A MUM has hit back at a cruel troll who asked if she puts her baby in massive bows to hide her forehead, insisting she just likes the style on her daughter. Amy Ridler regularly shares videos of her children Roman and Ella on her TikTok page, with critics apparently taking issue with the large bow headbands she chooses to put on her little girl. 2Amy Ridler faces questions about her choice of huge bow headbands for her baby girlCredit: TikTok/@amyw996 She shared a video in which she screenshot a comment from a troll which read: "No hate or nothing but do you put her in the big bows to hide her forehead?"

Others were quick to comment on her love of bows, with some people admitting they don't understand the fascination with the accessory. "Adorable baby, but the bows way too big," one person wrote.

    Though the COVID-19 pandemic has overtaken hospitals around the country as well as dominated the media, another decades-long epidemic has continued to exist despite access to medication that could completely eradicate it. The HIV/AIDS epidemic, which took off in the U.S. in the early 1980s, is still very much a concern to doctors and public health officials, who say that federal funding is paramount to ending the illness. Currently, there are federal programs that dole out money to states to help fund medication for those who already have HIV, but doctors and HIV/AIDS activists say that treating the disease after it’s already been contracted doesn’t do enough to stop its spread. Instead, they say there’s a need for federal funding for preventative medicine, which can be prohibitively expensive even for people with health insurance. Minnesota Sen. Tina Smith, who has long been an advocate for better healthcare funding in the U.S., introduced a bill in December that would give HIV doctors and activists what they’ve long been asking for. Article continues after advertisement “Too often federal policy is informed by...

    Third grade teacher Cara Denison speaks to students while live streaming her class via Google Meet at Rogers International School on Nov. 19, 2020, in Stamford, Connecticut. The COVID-19 moralizers are still at it, convinced they can get the virus to care that they think life should go back to what it was two years ago. But conditions in schools—as in hospitals—continue to show how futile and entitled that position is. (Looking at you, Emily Oster, David Leonhardt, Leana Wen.) Week after week, we see scolding in the national media about how it’s bad for schools to close or go remote, while local reports make clear again and again that school leaders do not have a choice here—and that in many cases, keeping schools open is very different from educating students, as kids are sitting in crowded classrooms without anyone available to actually teach them.

Diaz has made it clear on several occasions that he wants to fight No. 2-ranked lightweight Dustin Poirier. And he wants to take on “The Diamond” sooner rather than later. The beloved fighter hasn’t stepped inside the Octagon since June 2021 when he fought Leon Edwards at UFC 263. Although Diaz lost the fight by unanimous decision, he nearly finished the Englishman in the closing minute of the five-round affair. For months, Diaz has tried to book a fight and Poirier has been at the top of his list. It’s become public knowledge that Diaz only has one fight left on his UFC contract, which has caused some to speculate that the promotion has delayed booking Diaz in hopes of renegotiating his contract before he becomes a free agent. Some also believe that the UFC is waiting for Diaz’s rival Conor...

    A 17-year-old South Jersey resident died in a crash while on her way home, her family said on social media. Kayla Estrella Bowen, of Browns Mills, died on Dec. 16.

Services were set for Dec. 23 at Moore Funeral home in Browns Mills.
    For the third straight game, a 2-point conversion attempt loomed large for the Ravens. And for the third straight game, it backfired. With the Ravens trailing the Green Bay Packers 31-30 on Sunday after backup quarterback Tyler Huntley scrambled 8 yards for a touchdown with 42 seconds left, coach John Harbaugh decided to go for the 2-point conversion to take the lead instead of potentially tying the game with an extra point. Huntley took the shotgun snap and rolled to the right, but his pass to tight end Mark Andrews was broken up, solidifying the Ravens’ third straight loss. The Ravens’ failed 2-point try brought immediate flashbacks to last week’s 24-22 loss to the Cleveland Browns and a 20-19 defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13. After the Ravens scored to cut the deficit to 24-15 against the Browns, they elected to go for two instead of kicking the extra point. Harbaugh’s decision became a costly one, as they needed a touchdown and a field goal to take the lead. Despite recovering their first successful onside...

    Dontarius Magee, 17, is charged with carjacking, kidnapping and aggravated assault A Mississippi teenager was arrested after allegedly shooting his Lyft driver numerous times after he kidnapped her and took her to the woods to rob her, police said. Brandy Littrell, 36, was shot seven times on Tuesday after picking up 17-year-old Dontarius Magee from an apartment complex in Byram, directly south of Jackson. Magee reportedly forced Littrell into the backseat of her black Dodge Journey after hailing a ride and, holding her to gunpoint, drove her to a wooded area off Beasley Road, Jackson Deputy Chief of Police Deric Hearn said. 'I gave him whatever he wanted because I was just trying to stay alive,' she told 16ABC from her hospital bed.  'He wanted my PIN number to my phone, my debit cards and wanted to know how much money I had in the bank, and wanted to know what was in my house.' After shooting Littrell and getting her home address, garage door opener and car keys, Magee fled the scene, police said. Once he left, Littrell feared for...
    Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images New court filings show that former President Donald Trump is trying to block the committee in investigating the Capitol insurrection from receiving documents that include handwritten notes, phone logs, and even a draft of his Jan. 6 speech. A court filing entered Saturday morning reveals for the first time what some of the documents Trump is trying to block from the U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol. Politico reports that the filing sheds light on the types of documents that Trump has been trying to “suppress” as the committee investigates the events that led up to and followed the attack on the Capitol, and the attack itself: The National Archives indicated that many files were drawn from the systems of key Trump aides including former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, adviser Stephen Miller and deputy counsel Patrick Philbin. Other documents include “draft text of a presidential speech for the January 6, 2021, Save America March; a handwritten list of potential or scheduled briefings and telephone calls concerning election...
    A former NYPD police officer was sentenced on Friday to four years in prison in connection with a botched murder-for-hire plot targeting her husband and her boyfriend's 13-year-old daughter, but she may regain her freedom within just a few months.  Valerie Cincinelli, 37, pleaded guilty in April to a single count of obstruction of justice as part of an agreement with federal prosecutors.  On Friday, a judge sentenced Cincinelli to 48 months in federal prison, but with credit for time served and good behavior, she could be released to house arrest in five months.  Cincinelli's ex-husband and the target of the thwarted plot, Isaiah Carvalho, was present during sentencing. It is unclear at this time whether he spoke in court.

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) stated that the Biden administration isn’t actually going to reinstitute the Migrant Protection Protocols, commonly known as Remain in Mexico, “They’re actually just trying to slow-walk it until they can find a way to kill it.” Roy said, “[A] federal judge…said that the federal government needed to do its job and follow the law and actually continue to follow the Migrant Protection Protocols. The administration is actually working actively to undermine that. At the current moment, they’re actually trying to rescind the program by following the procedures the judge cited that they failed to follow to start with. Meanwhile, they’re going to put out news saying, well, we’re doing what the judge said. So, we’re going to do the Migrant Protection Protocol. But they’re really not. They’re actually just trying to slow-walk it until they can find a way to kill it.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    A Chicago Catholic private school has become the latest to bend to the woke mob after being branded racist over a video showing white students refusing to dance to a Mexican country song. The drama was triggered at a homecoming dance at the $13,000-a-year Marist High School on October 9, with bosses there since groveling. They apologized even though students snubbed multiple other songs, including one from Justin Bieber, with furious parents insisting nothing racist took place.    Student Elizabeth Pachecho shared a clip of kids kneeling during Payaso de Rodeo, a 1997 song by the Mexican country music group Caballo Dorado, and framed their behavior as racist, even though they knelt at multiple other points during the night for a host of songs they didn't like. She wrote: 'You send us emails asking for pictures of our families during Hispanic Heritage Month. You hang up our banners of papel picado throughout the school. If you love our food, ethnic fashion, and energy so much... why do you resent us. How would you like it if we kneeled to your country...

    So easy to avoid a deadly fate. Facebook is a menace. COVID-19 is a menace. Conservatism is a cesspool. Together, those three ingredients have created a toxic stew of malevolent death and devastation. We can talk about all those things in the abstract, look at the numbers and statistics, and catch the occasional whiff of seditionist right-wing rhetoric. But I hadn’t really fully understood just how horrifying that combination of right-wing extremism, Facebook, and a killer virus was until I became a regular at the Herman Cain Awards subreddit. This series will document some of those stories, so we are aware of what the other side is doing to our country. Let’s call today’s cautionary tale “snowflake.” As of right now, about 13.5% of the country has gotten COVID … that we know of. That’s nearly 45 million people, which is a lot! Many asymptomatic cases have happened unbeknownst to anyone. So … odds are pretty good that someone will get it, and even better for those who aren’t taking the proper precautions like vaccinating, social distancing, and masking.  Marshall law, lol.  Okay,...
    The Biden administration is again trying to put an end to former President Donald Trump's so-called 'Remain in Mexico' policy combatting illegal immigration after a federal judge ruled last month that the move to end the program was unlawful. The Department of Homeland Security released a statement Wednesday announcing its intent to issue a memorandum terminating the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), also known as the 'Remain in Mexico' program. The order, according to the statement, will come in the next few weeks. 'A new memorandum terminating MPP will not take effect until the current injunction is lifted by court order,' the DHS press release reads. 'In issuing a new memorandum terminating MPP, the Department intends to address the concerns raised by the courts with respect to the prior memorandum.' In June 2021, DHS issued a memorandum terminating the MPP that a Texas district court ruled in August violated the law and issued an order requiring the agency to restart the Trump-era program. In another blow to the Biden administration's attempt to shut down the program, the Supreme Court in August...
    Army Wives Elle McLemore and Celebrity Tennis Coach Josh Levinson Are Married: A Whimsical Fairytale Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla predicts normal life will return within a year and adds we may need annual Covid shots © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad One of the topics of conversation for Titans head coach Mike Vrabel at his press conference after Sunday’s 25-16 win over the Colts was the status of wide receiver Julio Jones. Jones played sparingly in the second half of the game and Vrabel was asked if Jones, who was not on the injury report coming into the game, was injured when he appeared at the podium. Vrabel didn’t say if Jones was ailing while giving an answer as to why the veteran wasn’t seeing much of the field. “Just trying to manage where he’s at, and the type of game the end of the game would be,” Vrabel said, via Ben Arthur of the Tennessean.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — With many people tired of the COVID-19 pandemic and taking trips, the Transportation Security Administration — or TSA — is catching more bizarre items in security. On Wednesday, the agency gave CBS2’s Jenna DeAngelis an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the items and explained why it seems there are more. “Oh yeah, we got some very interesting looking things in here,” TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein said.

    Shanice Young, 31, was returning to her Harlem apartment after her baby shower around 1 am on Sunday when she was shot  A heavily-pregnant 31-year-old was shot dead in front of her two children after her baby shower as she tried to separate her ex and her new boyfriend - the father of her unborn baby. Shanice Young was bringing gifts from her shower into her building lobby at 300 West 128 Street around 1.16am. '[The gunman] came in chasing the boyfriend,' Jose Morales, the super of Young's building, told the Daily News. 'They ran through here and out the other side and they ran downstairs.' The deceased mother's family told PIX 11 that her ex-boyfriend had been stalking her, and was lying in wait in front of her apartment.    As of Monday evening, no arrests have been made, the NYPD told MailOnline.  'I helped her put her gifts in the car and I said, "I’ll see you tomorrow,"' her father Thurman Young, 57, told the News.
