    BETWEEN the kids, work and just trying to get a moment to yourself, life is just so busy.  But the reality of fitting everything in has sparked a new sleep epidemic called ‘revenge bedtime procrastination’.  1Revenge bedtime procrastination is when you claw back some 'me' time even though you really need to go to sleepCredit: Getty We've all been there, catching up on Whatsapp after dinner in front of Netflix or frantically putting a late night wash on because we've run out of underwear for tomorrow.  Life is more time-strapped than ever and juggling social obligations alongside a career, catch-up phone calls and walking the dog seems more impossible than ever.  Dr Lindsay Browning, psychologist, neuroscientist and sleep expert for And So To Bed, has noticed the shift.  “People [are] finding it hard to go to bed at the right time because they feel they need to have some time for themselves in the evening,” she says.  Read more on sleepDREAM ON Sleep expert reveals why kids get night terrors & why hugs should be avoidedSNOOZE YOU LOSE The common...

    (CNN)Years of long hours, understaffed companies and burned-out employees have all led to the latest TikTok trend: quiet quitting.The catchphrase quiet quitting is misleading, however, making some people think it means workers doing the bare minimum at their jobs.

    Ivy Lynn Lee, 22, of Lake Charles, reportedly left her six-month-old daughter Rissa in a hot car for five hours on Sunday while she was at work. She has been charged with second-degree murder and possession of marijuana  A Louisiana mother has been charged with murder after she left her baby to die in a hot car - three years after doing the same to her other daughter, who she was forced to give up. Ivy Lynn Lee, 22, of Lake Charles, left six-month-old daughter Rissa in a hot car for five hours on Sunday while she was at work. The mom-of-two had 'flagged down' an officer, who she told her daughter was 'not breathing'. Officers began 'life-saving measures' on the child before transporting her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. In an interview with investigators, Lee told two different stories, starting with that Rissa was not initially in her care - but she later admitted she had left the child in her car while she was at work.  She flagged down officers and told them her daughter...

    WEEDS can ruin a perfectly pruned garden. But most weed removers contain loads of harsh chemicals that are bad for wildlife and other plants. 3Weeds are every gardeners worst nightmareCredit: Getty Daisy Payne is ITV'S This Morning's gardening expert and recently shared some of her best tips to get rid of pesky weeds easily. "It’s really important that you don’t use pesticides in your garden," The green fingered pro shared. "It’s bad for the environment, it’s bad for the wildlife, and the eco-systems you’re supporting in your garden. "One of my preferred options is a really organic way, which is the no-dig method. "This is perfect for if you’ve got a really big space or a veg patch, and there are lots of weeds popping up," she explained. The clever hack is budget friendly too, Daisy says: "You get yourself some layers of cardboard, place it down over the weedy area, make sure it’s firm down, plenty of layers." The carboard trick works especially well on large areas, since it take out the hard work of pulling up weeds...
    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,...

    This content is provided by Interstate Moving | Relocation | Logistics. Since the early days of the pandemic, much has been written about workplace flexibility – and the impact of remote and hybrid work on commercial real estate. Business leaders have spent much of the past two years running their companies from their kitchen tables, while their employees worked from home or other remote locations. Employee productivity improved, while “Zoom fatigue” settled in and employers discovered new, virtual ways to connect with team members and customers. As a result, many of the commercial real estate (CRE) tenants I see now are embracing a hybrid or remote work model, which ultimately means fewer days in the office for employees. Top of mind for these tenants is whether to reduce their office space, sublease excess space or even close their offices entirely. To be sure, there is no single, “right” answer. When clients ask, I typically advise starting with an assessment of what they are hoping to accomplish by bringing their employees back and how they intend to use their office space....

    VIDEO14:4714:47Watch CNBC's one-on-one interview with California Gov. Gavin NewsomPolitics California Governor Gavin Newsom on Thursday said the state's in a "transformational moment" to shift away from fossil fuels, as climate change continues to fuel devastating wildfire seasons and historic drought conditions across California. The governor's remarks to CNBC's Yasmin Khorram come shortly after the state unveiled this year's budget proposal, which invests $22 billion in new climate change funding and allocates money from last year's budget for a total of $37 billion in climate investment over six years. "The magnitude of the challenge is self-evident," Newsom said. "The extreme droughts, the record-breaking heat that we experienced just 24 or so months ago, record-breaking wildfires ... require us to do more and to manage these existential threats more aggressively. We're doing everything in our power, not just rhetorical." Newsom said the budget's climate funding is an example of the state's willingness to do the hard work that other states and nations simply talk about. "A lot of jurisdictions talk a good game. They put out headline grabbing pronouncements of 'We're going to reduce...
    DEREK CHISORA took a dive into the deep end by doing a gruelling day of work experience as a POOL BOY.

    Some of us saw what was coming when this happened. Frustrated front-line House Democrats desperately need to pass some part of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better (BBB) plan to have something to run on in 2022. They’re pushing for BBB to be split up and hold votes on the most popular things as stand-alone provisions—like extending the child tax credit and lowering prescription drug costs. This, they think, will give Democrats the ability to run on the economic help they’ve provided their constituents. They also seem to think Sen. Joe Manchin, the West Virginia Democrat who has pretty much single-handedly stymied the whole thing, is movable. Their reasoning is faulty. “What I don’t want to do is have the Democratic caucus just beat their heads against the wall for months. We need a timeline here,” Rep. Susan Wild from Pennsylvania told The Washington Post. “If there is still hope for Manchin to agree, we need to figure out when that’s going to be and what we are doing if he doesn’t meet that deadline because, in the past, he hasn’t. What’s our...

    A BOSS has been labelled as a con artist after one woman claiming she was sacked for turning up on time and leaving when her shift finished. In a Reddit post, the woman asks "am I the a**hole for not shutting up and working for free?" after her boss tried to make her work a 16 hour shift. 2A woman claimed she was fired from her job after receiving a warning from her boss for doing the 'bare-minimum'.Credit: Getty Sharing her story anonymously, the woman said that her boss expected her to work up to eight hours of overtime on certain shifts.

    New York (CNN Business)Less than a month into her role as the chief executive of Citigroup, Jane Fraser made a decision that shook Wall Street. It was late March, and signs of burnout were everywhere after more than a year of remote work in the pandemic. Deal volume was at record highs and showed no signs of letting up. Over at investment banking rival Goldman Sachs, young analysts made headlines with workplace horror stories that went beyond the typical long hours and cutthroat competition that Wall Street's known for. They were falling apart, mentally and emotionally. Fraser saw an opportunity. And the memo she sent to Citi's 210,000 global staff would set the tone for how she would try to overhaul Citigroup — long languishing in third place and mired in bad press."The blurring of lines between home and work and the relentlessness of the pandemic workday have taken a toll on our well-being," she wrote. "It's simply not sustainable." Jane Fraser, pictured at the Milken Institute Global Conference in California in 2019, inherited a difficult job when she took...
    California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) claimed Tuesday in his first public appearance since Oct. 27 that he had canceled plans to attend the Glasgow climate summit because his children demanded that he go trick-or-treating with them on Halloween. Newsom, speaking at the California Economic Summit, complained about the “treadmill” of work — just weeks after voters tried to relieve him of the burdens of office in a recall election that he managed to defeat by the same margin as his 2018 win. As Fox News reported: “It’s been a hell of a couple years for all of us, for each and every one of you, particularly parents,” he said. “The fits and starts at school, the stresses of balancing your responsibilities at work and also your responsibilities at home. And I extend those responsibilities particularly to fathers, that may not be doing as much, let’s be honest, as the moms have been doing these last few years.” I’ve been on this damn treadmill,” he continued. “We’ve gone from crisis to crisis, from wildfires and extremes, from droughts and social justice...

I asked her what was all this and she said she was sick of babying me." In his defense, their previous mutual agreement had him working to fund their lives, while the girlfriend stayed at home and took care of domestic affairs.  The man shared that he made enough money and received a...

    In this article MCD TGT CMG SBUX WMT UAA WBA Americans are leaving their jobs in droves. In August 4.3 million Americans quit their jobs. While some people have left the workforce entirely, job security and better pay are top concerns for others. The quits rate, which is measured against total employment, rose to a series high of 2.9% in August, according to the Labor Department's Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey. "We were all able to take a step back in the last year and spend more time doing other things and really question the value of what we're doing at work," said Anthony Klotz, a management professor at Texas A&M University. "A number of people have made the decision, 'I need to make a change.'"  Dubbed "The Great Resignation," the exodus of workers has created hiring challenges for companies and left millions of jobs unfilled.   More than half of U.S. workers surveyed said they plan to look for a new job in the coming year, according to Bankrate's August job seeker survey.

    Buda Mendes, Getty Images Pope Francis is once again denouncing conservative critics of the Catholic Church for doing the devil’s work. “I personally may deserve attacks and insults because I am a sinner, but the Church does not deserve this,” It is the work of the devil,” Francis said in a meeting with Jesuits in Slovakia this month. The comments were first published on Tuesday by Jesuit magazine La Civilta Cattolica. Asked about his health, Francis replied, that he was “still alive, although some people wanted me dead,” adding, “I know that there were even meetings between prelates who thought that the Pope was in a more serious condition than was being said. They were preparing the conclave (to elect a new pope). So be it. Thank God, I am well.” Francis spent 11 days in the hospital in July for colon surgery. He was elected pontiff in 2013, and has angered conservatives within the church for frequently taking positions on social issues that are at odds with his predecessors. He suggested last year that there should be a “civil...

    Famous TV shows that ended in controversy VW CEO Fears Chips Will Be in Short Supply for Years to Come The Ravens' QB knows what people say about him. He and his coach give us a look at the areas he's trying to improve. SPARTANBURG, S.C. — The Thursday I was here, the big story coming out was Matt Rhule’s Panthers taking a step forward in their final hours of camp against the Ravens, who’d “won” the joint practice between the teams the day before. And punctuating that effort was a headline play—coming when Donte Jackson undercut a route, picked off Lamar Jackson and touched off a raucous celebration that ended with Carolina linebacker Shaq Thompson’s punting the intercepted ball into the sky and drawing a flag for taunting. About 20 minutes later, I was standing with Ravens coach John Harbaugh, maybe 150 yards from where all that happened. He relayed a different view of his quarterback’s day, and of Jackson’s offseason in general. “He’s always been a mature person. He’s never gonna change who he is or his...

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have said the situation in Afghanistan has left them 'speechless' in a wide-ranging statement that also addresses the Covid-19 crisis and the humanitarian disaster in Haiti.  The lengthy statement, released via the couple's slick Archewell Foundation website, calls on followers to support organizations including the World Central Kitchen, but failed to say how much they would be personally donating or details of how they will help. It comes a day after the Duke of Sussex, 36, who spent 10 years in the British Army and performed two frontline tours of Afghanistan, released a statement via the Invictus Games Foundation to urge veterans to 'reach out to each other and offer support'.  But in his statement from the Invictus Games Foundation he did not offer any views on Joe Biden's decision to abandon the Afghans he fought alongside, or the chaotic execution of the withdrawal that saw the Taliban re-take the country in days following 20 years of war. Last year, he and Meghan were accused of wading into the US election when they urged voters to 'reject hate speech' in...
    (CBS4) – The 2021 Dancing with the Denver Stars Gala is coming up on Saturday, August 14th. Cleo Parker Robinson hosts the annual fundraiser every year.

    Speaking to a gaggle of reporters this Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was asked if he watched the House select committee's first hearing in its investigation of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. "Did you watch any of the hearing today?" a reporter asked. "No, I didn't," McConnell replied. "Why not?" the reporter asked. "I was busy doing work," McConnell said. "I serve in the Senate."

    Defensive self-censorship to evade leftist criticisms is “doing the tyrant’s work for him,” Seth Dillon, CEO of the Babylon Bee, warned Breitbart News at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit in Tampa, Florida. “There’s a lot of people right now … feeling so much pressure to self-censor, which is really just doing the tyrant’s work for him,” Dillon determined. Acquiescing to fear of “cancel culture” will facilitate an expansion of left-wing political censorship, he stated. Dillon urged young Americans at the summit to speak out against falsehoods pushed by the left in their personal and professional lives. “There has to also be this uprising from people in their places of work,” he said. “Young professionals, students on their campuses, rather than … doing the tyrant’s work for him by censoring themselves, they have to be bold and speak the truth, push back on this nonsense and really assert their right to be in the workplace and to have the thoughts and views and conservative values that they have.” He continued, “If they don’t do that en masse, then they’re going to...

    Carey Price helped carry the Montreal Canadiens to the Stanley Cup Final with his remarkable goaltending. The work he’s doing off the ice is just as impressive. In team sports, every athlete deserves some share of both blame and credit for their team’s outcome. As fans, we’re often drawn to those who unselfishly pass their share of credit onto their teammates, looking to shoulder more than their share of the blame. Carey Price, MVP for the Stanley Cup Finalists, son of Lynda, chief of the Ulkatcho First nation and grandson of Theresa, Residential School Survivor, is just such a person. This was recently shown in a press conference moments after the Montreal Canadiens were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs. It’s worth noting that Carey’s actions are not just meaningful for Canada’s Indigenous populations – they’re meaningful for anyone who doesn’t fit into the straight, white, default hockey player archetype. I’m mixed: half-Filipino, half Caucasian, and when you’re mixed you gain a unique perspective on race. I played organized hockey throughout my childhood (admittedly, I was only good at getting...
    (L-R) Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh in "Black Widow." Disney Director Cate Shortland brought in a coach to help the two "Black Widow" stars bond. Johansson told The Hollywood Reporter she and Pugh did "trust exercises." It didn't work. "We bonded over a headlock," Johansson said, referencing when the two began doing fight scenes. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. It's always easier on a movie set when two actors who need to have a connection on screen genuinely are friends. So to help jump start that, "Black Widow" director Cate Shortland hired a coach to get her stars Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh to bond. It didn't work. "Cate Shortland brought in someone who could coach us through some bonding and trust exercises," Johansson revealed to The Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview. "And that was kind of goofy and fun. But the real bonding happened on the first or second day of Florence's work when we immediately slammed each other into door frames and cabinets." As Johansson puts it: "We bonded over a headlock." In...
    Earlier this year, the prominent German psychiatrist Thomas Schulze sent a proposal to Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of world-renowned medical journal The Lancet, suggesting they start a debate over the complicity of Chinese scientists in the persecution of Uighurs. His idea arose amid alarm over repressive surveillance, garnering of genetic data, enforced sterilisation and organ harvesting of prisoners locked away in brutally repressive concentration camps.  ‘We believe that the human rights situation in China has become unbearable and of unprecedented scope that we cannot stay silent any longer and at least need to have an open discussion in the best academic tradition,’ wrote Prof Schulze. Earlier this year, the prominent German psychiatrist Thomas Schulze sent a proposal to Richard Horton (pictured), the editor-in-chief of medical journal The Lancet, suggesting they start a debate over the complicity of Chinese scientists in the persecution of Uighurs He knew The Lancet did not shy away from political controversy, having signed a statement published by the journal last year calling on Britain to end the ‘torture and medical neglect’ of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange,...

    Getty New York Jets edge rusher Vinny Curry chases down Aaron Rodgers on December 6, 2020. Of all the signings the New York Jets made this spring, one that’s flown way under the radar has been veteran pass-rusher, Vinny Curry. A Joe Douglas guy from their time together with the Philadelphia Eagles, Curry is known for his ability as a bull-rusher that has a knack of collapsing the pocket on opposing quarterbacks. This type of dirty work doesn’t always show up on the stat sheet but it can be noticeable to the naked eye. It’s also paramount in winning and losing football games, and the former Super Bowl champion knows a little something about that.

    In a Monday appearance on CNN’s “New Day,” Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) likened Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Bowman argued that Manchin “has become the new Mitch McConnell” because the Democratic senator from West Virginia “is doing everything in his power to stop democracy” in his opposition to ending the filibuster and HR-1, the For the People Act, which would federalize local elections. “Joe Manchin has become the new Mitch McConnell,” Bowman asserted. “Mitch McConnell during Obama’s presidency said he would do everything in his power to stop Obama. He’s also repeated that now during the Biden presidency by saying he would do everything in his power to stop President Biden. And now, Joe Manchin is doing everything in his power to stop democracy and stop our work for the people, the work that the people sent us here to do.” “[M]anchin is not pushing us closer to bipartisanship,” he added. “He is doing the work of the Republican Party by being an obstructionist, just like they’ve been since the beginning of Biden’s presidency,”...

    Getty Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is photographed at the "Jersey Shore Family Vacation" premiere in 2018. As fans of the MTV reality series “Jersey Shore” are aware, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has made it his priority to stay in shape. The 38-year-old and his wife, Lauren, are currently awaiting the arrival of their first child, who is due in May. During a recent joint interview on the Daily Pop, the Staten Island native commented on if he believed parenthood will have an impact on his chiseled physique. He suggested that he will continue to work out and noted for the past “ten to twenty years” he has used the gym “to be [his] best self.” The father-to-be went on to say that exercising has helped him maintain his sobriety. Later in the interview, Mike also addressed how his workout routine has been affected by the pandemic. While most gyms have been closed, he explained that his eight-month prison sentence in 2019 for tax evasion prepared him to work out without proper equipment. “I’ve been doing a lot of...
    President Biden has tasked Vice President Harris with addressing the root causes of mass migration from Central America – but she will not be handling southern border policy in general, a top aide said. "The Vice President is not doing the border," a senior advisor to Harris told reporters Friday. "The President asked the vice president to take on the diplomatic efforts with Mexico and …the Northern Triangle to address the root causes of migration." Harris will now have the complicated task of reviewing why waves of migrants seeking shelter in the U.S. have been arriving from the Northern Triangle countries, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, after traveling through Mexico to the U.S. border. BIDEN NOW CALLS FILIBUSTER ‘A RELIC OF THE JIM CROW ERA’ BUT KAMALA HARRIS IS AMONG DEMS WHO HAVE EMBRACED IT "There are many reasons that move these folks to make this dangerous journey," senior advisor Symone Sanders said, relaying the same talking points laid out by the president in his first press conference Thursday. "This is not work that will be addressed overnight." "This is a challenging...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- We've all lived through dramatic changes in the past year. Looking back, we know how the workplace had to change because of COVID-19. People worked from home. They held seemingly endless meetings over Zoom.Remote learning meant parents had additional child care duties. Stress and anxiety increased. All of this is expected to have a lasting impact on the workplace.The Path Forward: Lessons learned, journey ahead 1 year into the COVID-19 pandemicGoing forward, companies will find themselves managing employees' lives.They recognized that dealing with upheaval affected mental health. So many companies began to offer mental health counseling.As women elected to work from home, they lost visibility at the office, so business consultants are warning that the gender wage gap will worsen."What we're likely to see if we don't do anything about it is managers giving raises to their male in-office employees at the expense of their female at-home employees," said Brian Kropp, vice president of Gartner Research, who has been analyzing lasting work trends as we emerge from the pandemic.VIDEO: How deadly virus shaped new era of...

It’s remarkable, but it’s also really a testament to all of the hard work that went into the process of developing these vaccines.” It wasn’t long after COVID-19 was identified that Dr. Duprex’s team got to work. “The very first thing we did was get the virus from an imported case,” he recalled. “Because we had the biocontainment laboratories where we were able to work with a virus from the earliest as possible.” The Pitt team was not working in a bubble, every discovery was being shared with the world science community. “We have tremendous facilities we have tons of expertise, very important for us to play our part in...
