    The former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani has come under fire for saying September 11, 2001, the day terrorists flew planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, was 'in some ways … the greatest day of my life.' Giuliani, 78, made the remarks just days before the 21st anniversary of the attacks while speaking on Newsmax on Friday morning.  'The feelings are … complex feelings. I guess the best way to describe it is, it was the worst day of my life and in some ways, you know, the greatest day of my life, in terms of my city, my country, my family. 'It was the worst foreign attack on this country since the war of 1812. It was a complete surprise.

    All of us experience certain levels of stress in today's busy world, but how can you tell if the level of pressure you're feeling is about to tip into something that could overwhelm you?   From perching on the edge of your seat, bashing the keys of your computer and using certain language on social media, top psychologists have divulged what to look for to spot extreme stress. Dr Nicholas Walsh, a lecturer in developmental psychology at the University of East Anglia, told FEMAIL people are often 'less aware' of things going on around them when stressed. He explained: 'It's always helpful to notice these signs.  Stress is associated with a more narrow attention as this helps us focus but it means we're less self-aware, so noticing quirky signs could be very useful.' 'We have more accidents and make worse decisions so advance notice could help avoid bigger problems.

    A MOLDY home is unattractive and can cause health problems for residents - but luckily there are ways to prevent it from growing. Millions of Americans are living with mold, with a couple of studies by Harvard University suggesting up to 70% could be affected. 1You can prevent mold from growing in your home in a few waysCredit: Getty Typically, mold builds up in damp environments, meaning areas such as bathrooms and bedrooms, as well as places you dry washing. You're at greater risk if you have leaks in roofs, windows or pipes, or if your home has been flooded.

    Exercise away from busy roads  As we age, the brain starts to change. By the age of 60, the frontal lobe and hippocampus, areas involved in cognitive function and encoding new memories, start to shrink, as does the white matter, the bundles of nerves that carry signals between brain cells. The brain also produces fewer chemical messengers, including the feel-good hormones dopamine and serotonin, which can hasten depression and cognitive decline. We’re also at growing risk of diseases of the brain, such as Alzheimer’s. However, regular exercise is beneficial because it seems to work at a cellular level to increase the number of mitochondria (power houses) in brain cells. ‘But keep away from areas of high pollution if you want to get the health benefits,’ says Ian Mudway, a senior lecturer at the School of Public Health at Imperial College London. Regular exercise is beneficial because it seems to work at a cellular level to increase the number of mitochondria (power houses) in brain cells. ‘But keep away from areas of high pollution if you want to get the health...

For people with arthritis, stiffness "in your back and neck and sore joints do occur more in colder weather. ...

If you are looking for inspiration, then here are some of the tried-and-tested things I have incorporated into my own life, which you, too, could take on to ensure a healthier, happier 2022. Try a keto diet A 2021 survey by Public Health England revealed that nearly half of us have put on around half a stone (just over 3 kg) during the pandemic. So how best to get rid of those Covid kilos? Over the autumn months I put on a few pounds, creeping into the overweight category (my BMI, which for years had been around 24, was 25). I tried a new approach to slim down for Christmas: a short-term ‘keto’ diet — where you cut your consumption of carbs to less than 50g a day, while eating plenty of healthy fats, such as olive oil, oily fish and nuts, plus lots of veg. It forms the basis of my book, The Fast 800 Keto, which has just been published. A 2021 survey by Public Health England revealed that nearly half of...

    (CNN)A lawyer for Mark Meadows says the former Trump White House chief of staff was the recipient of a PowerPoint document detailing ways to undermine the count of the 2020 election but did nothing with it, according to the New York Times. The 38-page document, which is among thousands of pages of materials Meadows provided to the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, was initially circulated by a retired Army colonel who was working to challenge the results, according to the Times. CNN has not independently verified the contents of the PowerPoint.Phil Waldron, a retired colonel who spread misinformation about election fraud in the presidential election, told the Times that he circulated the PowerPoint among allies of former President Donald Trump, including lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

    Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen opened up about the 1984 car crash that changed his life and, in many ways, made him into the artist that he is today.  Allen joined the rock group when he was 15 and every member shot to fame over the next decade. However, on New Year’s Eve in 1984, he was driving his Corvette when he was involved in a horrible accident that left him without his left arm.  Speaking to ABC News, Allen explained that, when the car flipped, he was thrown through the sunroof. However, before that happened, his seat belt came undone in the violent crash and his arm ended up getting stuck inside of it. As a result, when he was thrown, his left arm stayed behind.  TOMMY LEE'S INTERVIEW ENDS ABRUPTLY WHEN HOSTS ASK WHICH OF HIS EX-LOVERS WAS 'BEST' Drummer Rick Allen performing on stage during a live concert appearance with Def Leppard on October 11, 1987 (John Atashian/Getty Images) Fortunately, Allen was determined to continue with his career and his bandmates stuck by him.

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken condemned “packing courts” as a threat to democratic systems and governance, during a trip to Latin America that could put him crosswise with a left-wing campaign to enlarge the Supreme Court. “Consider a country where a leader is elected in a free and fair election and then sets about chipping away slowly but surely at the pillars of democracy. ... Now, imagine that leader then seeks to use the levers of democracy to pass anti-democratic reforms — eliminating term limits, packing courts, firing legislators,” Blinken told an audience at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito in Ecuador. “That’s the story of more than one democracy in our hemisphere. And it’s one of the ways that democracies can come undone.” Blinken condemned that panoply of power grabs just days after a commission established by President Joe Biden to study adding seats to the U.S. Supreme Court questioned “whether Court expansion would be wise.” Republican officials hailed the remark as a boon for their case against the expansion campaign, while Blinken situated his comments within a broader...
    Some experts on U.S. election law have been warning that the most dangerous part of Republican voter suppression bills isn't the ways in which they make voting more difficult — it is the ways in which they seek to change the administration of elections. Liberal Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent and legal scholar Neil H. Buchanan sound the alarm in articles published this week, and both of them offer some possible remedies. Sargent explains, "There is a critical way Congress can minimize the possibility of another January 6: by addressing glaring legal vulnerabilities in the presidential electoral process that encouraged Donald Trump's movement to try to overturn his loss, creating the conditions for the worst outbreak of U.S. political violence in recent times. We're talking about revising the Electoral Count Act (ECA) of 1887. That may sound dry and unexciting, but it would shore up hidden weaknesses that made the 2020 breakdown possible." Following the 2020 election, then-President Donald Trump and his attorneys tried to pressure fellow Republicans into helping him overturn the election results in states that now-President Joe...
    We all know that a will is a document that collects the last wills of a person. But beyond that, in legal terms, the only thing we know is that it is a really complex legal process. However, with the pandemic, many have been more interested in this document and how to prepare it. The high death rate from Covid-19 has resulted in 85,186 transmissions of home ownership by inheritance in Spain, the highest figure recorded by the INE since 2007. It is important to inform you of how to make a will, since it is the only legal way to record our wishes. In general, it is a simple and inexpensive procedure, but there are a series of costs, procedures and steps that must be followed. Also, keep in mind that there are several types of wills.

    Fiona Hill, who served as Donald Trump's top Russian adviser, said she considered pulling a fire alarm or faking a medical emergency to end the then-president's 2018 press conference with Vladimir Putin.  'My initial thought was just 'how can I end this?' I literally did have it in my mind the idea of faking some kind of medical emergency and throwing myself backwards with a loud curdling scream into the media,' she said.  And she told CNN: 'I looked around to see if there was a fire alarm but we were in a rather grand building attached to the Finnish palace that the Finnish president lent to us for the occasion. And I couldn't see anything that resembled a fire alarm.' Hill, who was a witness in Trump's first impeachment trial in January 2020, said she was distressed at Trump's deferential behavior to Putin that she tried to find ways to cut it off.

    DRUGS prescribed to help tackle insomnia don't work for longer periods of time, experts have warned. People suffering from sleep disorders often suffer in the long-term - and experts now say many medications can stop working after six months. 4Experts have warned that drugs prescribed to treat insomnia don't actually work over a long period of timeCredit: Getty Writing in the BMJ Open, experts said that middle-aged women prescribed drugs for insomnia didn't have improved sleep over a long-term period. Sleep issues can cause a myriad of health issues from everything to diabetes, high blood pressure, pain and depression. Many people suffering with insomnia are given medication such as benzodiazepines in order to help their symptoms. Researchers monitored women who presented with sleep issues and those who didn't. They looked at how easy the women found it to get to sleep, how often they would wake up and how often they experienced disturbed sleep. Both groups of women had similar sleep scores over a period of two years, meaning the prescription drugs hadn't had a meaningful impact on the...
    The president of Pimec, Antoni Cañete, announced this Saturday that the employer’s association is in talks with the Russian fund Rdif with the aim of “exploring ways to favor the authorization, distribution and manufacturing of the Sputnik V vaccine in Catalonia “. In a statement, the employers have defended that there are currently 55 countries that apply it and that the vaccine has a 92% efficiency, for which Cañete has remarked that “it is not the moment to prioritize geopolitics, but to admit all possible and safe vaccines to save lives and recover the economy.” In this sense, he has asked urgently to accelerate the rate of vaccination by all possible routes and has considered “inadmissible the modest objective of reach 30% of the vaccinated population at the gates of summer “because it could harm,” he says, “the tourist season.

    New York Giants: Ranking the 3 positions that need upgrades this offseason By: Alexander Wilson March 3, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants only have a specific amount of resources they can allocate this off-season, and they will have to be strategic with how they manipulate the money available. They are currently $3 million over the cap, which means they don’t currently have the cash and flexibility to extend Leonard Williams on a multi-year deal. They will have to shed dead weight and find ways to open up money, but that is what professional financial experts are expected to do, like Kevin Abrams. However, it is quite disappointing that the Giants don’t have much cap space despite the fact that they have a quarterback on a rookie deal. They have too much money tied up in players who aren’t making an impact, like Nate Solder and Golden Tate. The expectation is that they will move on from these two this off-season unless they can find efficient ways to reconstruct their current deals. ...

    GENTLE READERS: That it is acceptable to be rude so long as you provide a justification for your behavior is not, Miss Manners assures you, correct. But neither is it an unusual ploy. Take the cases of a young lady who detests carrots, a young gentleman recently converted to vegetarianism out of concern for the planet, and an older gentleman with a life-threatening allergy to shellfish. The older gentleman has spent a lifetime quietly avoiding shrimp cocktails. His friends and relatives know his situation and keep an eye out for him. But he must still wearily abide the rude dinner partner who insists on knowing why he is not eating the clam chowder — which she assures him is really delicious. The young gentleman is passionate that it is everyone else, not himself, who is at fault: They are either unaware of the cruel and destructive nature of the meat industry — in which case he is doing a public service by educating them — or they are indifferent to it, which crime pales in comparison to anything he could...

    A year into the pandemic, winter is the last of the four seasons we’re newly experiencing during this crisis. Each season has had its curveballs, but one winter challenge may be staying warm if you can’t afford or are cutting back on indoor heating. Since we still need to prevent spreading the coronavirus, pre-pandemic ways to escape wintry chills may not be available: such as visiting a library, warming center or a friend’s house. Staying warm is necessary “for a variety of health reasons” in addition to comfort, said Dr. Georges Benjamin, the executive director of the American Public Health Association.

TikTok user Darron Cardosa posed the question on the app this weekend, asking other users: 'What's something you've done to a customer after they've been rude to you?' Dozens have replied, revealing the petty, ridiculous ways they've minorly inconvenienced customers who could have been more police.

    More On: iran How media monetized polarization and other commentary Twitter waits 17 hours before doing something about post threatening Trump World leaders express hope for new Biden administration Iranian missiles land just 100 miles from Navy ships: report President Biden is eager to reengage with Iran and return to the nuclear deal. Yet the murderous regime has no interest in changing its ways. It is boosting its nuclear-weapon development and its network of deadly militias across the Middle East in its continued drive for hegemony. Biden said during the campaign he’d rejoin the nuclear deal “as a starting point for follow-on negotiations” if “Iran returns to strict compliance,” working “to strengthen and extend the nuclear deal’s provisions, while also addressing other issues of concern,” such as Iran’s ballistic-missile program, human-rights abuses and “destabilizing activity.” That was always naïve, and Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister, confirmed it Friday: “There cannot be any renegotiations,” he wrote in Foreign Affairs. “Iran’s defense and regional policies were not up for discussion,” since the West won’t withdraw from the region and...

But it’s not that our brains are overloaded, as we might try to tell ourselves — in fact, our memory capacity is almost unlimited. Rather, gradual changes in brain structures, such as a reduction in connections between nerve cells, make the creation and retrieval of memories less efficient. As well as slowing down, certain other memory skills shift to a lower gear with age. Multi-tasking, for instance, becomes more difficult.  But it’s never too early to start the good habits that will help us in our golden years …  By the time we’re 40, many of us will notice that we can’t remember new names.

    COVID, mass unemployment, fiscal disaster — the next mayor of New York City will have a lot on his or her plate to cope with. But Hizz-or-Herhonor can make the Big Apple a much better place almost overnight. Face it: Our streets and sidewalks looked like hell even before the pandemic. Too many New Yorkers grew inured to it, but visitors from other great cities were appalled at our home town’s ruined look. It will take courage and a steel will to break through special-interest agendas and bureaucratic inertia to achieve the courses of action below. But this is why we elect people — to lead, to govern and to make hard choices. End the scaffold plague No city on earth suffers a blight of “sidewalk bridges” (i.e., tunnels) like Gotham. Many blocks resemble scaffold rental yards more than they do public byways. Our city’s becoming unrecognizable beneath 300 miles of corrugated-steel jungles. They ruin business at stores and restaurants, plunge residential entrances into darkness and provide a welcome mat to muggers and lazing psychopaths. They’re supposed to protect the...
    Long-term consumption of diet soda can increase your risk of kidney damage. JGI/Jamie Grill/Getty Images Diet soda may not be as healthy as you think. Research shows excessive diet soda drinking can increase sweetness cravings, erode tooth enamel, and alter your gut microbiome. While scientific evidence links diet soda to an increased risk of Alzheimer's, dementia, and ischemic stroke, experts agree more research is needed. This article was medically reviewed by Samantha Cassetty, MS, RD, nutrition and wellness expert with a private practice based in New York City. Visit Insider's Health Reference library for more advice. Just because diet soda doesn't contain sugar or calories, it doesn't mean it's healthy for you.  Whether it's Diet Coke, Coke Zero, or the countless number of "light" sodas offered on grocery store shelves, it's important to realize that instead of sugar, beverage companies typically use artificial sweeteners like aspartame, saccharin, and sucralose to mimic the taste of non-diet sodas. The fact that diet sodas rely on sugar alternatives to satisfy your cravings of something sweet and bubbly should be...
    Sweet choice: This 2019 outfit, including £4,600 Valentino cape and Louboutins, was dubbed ‘rhubarb and custard’ There was a brief moment in the past few days when it looked as though, against the odds, the giant orange toddler might actually beat Grandpa Gaga in the American election — and get a second term in the White House.  Hooray, I thought. Not because I particularly relish the thought of four more years of The Donald — even I can see that might be madness; but because of the total and utter fabulousness that is Melania Trump. Was there ever a FLOTUS like Melania? Will there ever be again? Those hypnotic cat’s eyes. Those high Slavic cheekbones. That extraordinary accent, straight out of Bond central casting.  That steely, thousand-yard gaze and impeccable poise. Those epic outfits.  And that wonderful way she looks at her husband like she might, at any point, just drown him in a vat of acid. Oh, those two. What a pair. Her wifely smile would fall like a stone the moment he turned his head, the flick...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Once the dust settles from the 2020 election, there will be a lot of talk about “healing the nation.” But what about healing your own relationships that may have been damaged by a tumultuous election? Personal damage from this election is very real and a lot of it stems from posts and threads on social where people have let it fly. Those who help us stay on an even keel mentally like psychotherapist James Shamlin, owner of Cranberry Psychological Services, have their hands full because of the election. “We are seeing a greater level of anxiety, angst, and animosity, and a lot of stress and strain in the relationships in our lives right now over the political climate,” Shamlin said. Now, is it the battle for the White House that has prompted these feelings, or is it the reaction from family members and those close to us? “You know, I really sense it’s a little bit of both,” he said. “The rhetoric is up, you know, it feels like the stakes...
    However this election turns out once the vote-counters and the lawyers finish up, it was once again a shock to all the establishment media who confidently predicted a Joe Biden romp that would likely produce a Democratic Senate and add to Nancy Pelosi’s House majority. But does anyone think that yet another shock, following 2016, will lead them to change their ways? Ha! The next week or three may see another round of 2016-style mea culpas and vows to do better at paying attention to the working-class voters — white, Latino and even black — who supported Trump. But they’ll soon be back to treating Black Lives Matter and AOC as the only authentic voices of blacks and Hispanics. They’ll take any Biden win as a return to “normalcy” and license to treat the whole Trump era like an aberration to be whitewashed away — and all Trump’s voters as deplorables to be ignored if not reeducated. And they’ll tar any Republican who voices even a hint of Trumpism as a “racist” who’s maybe a bit more polished. If the...
    Stress and poor mental health can negatively affect your physical health. Kiyoshi Hijiki/Getty Images Stress can contribute to headaches, stomach pains, and even weaken your immune system.  Some research has found that chronic stress is associated with a higher likelihood of getting sick from the common cold virus.  Chronic stress, and other mental health conditions like anxiety or depression, may also increase your risk for cardiovascular disease and long-term physical illnesses.  This article was medically reviewed by Zlatin Ivanov, MD, who is certified in psychiatry and addiction psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology at Psychiatrist NYC. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Psychological stress impacts many functions of the body, and it's possible for your mental health to have an effect on your physical symptoms.  According to David Cutler, MD, a family medicine physician at Providence Saint John's Health Center, stress is known to contribute to headaches, stomach pains, high blood pressure, and even a weakened immune system. Here's what you need to know about the relationship between mental health and physical health, and how to manage stress...
    America is rejecting losers like this who have packed the courts for years. We won't be ruled by their failed ideology. Rather than any legitimate interpretation of constitutional law, all of the outcomes you can expect from the Supreme Court will now be solely based on how the decision will affect Republicans getting elected. It’s disturbing, because as I read and watch media figures discuss Biden’s lead, they bring up the Republican's lock on the judiciary as if overturning votes is just established precedent now. The federal courts, and especially the Supreme Court, have essentially been turned into an arm of the GOP. For the sake of the rule of law and its integrity, Democrats cannot allow this to stand.   This disaster was in the making for many years before Mitch McConnell made up a rule in order to prevent the first African American president from appointing a Supreme Court nominee in the final year of his two-term presidency. McConnell blocked every single judicial appointment for the two years he had control of the Senate. This allowed him to turn...
    Democrat Joyce Elliott is running a strong campaign to flip an Arkansas congressional seat We now have less than a week to go before Election Day, and with things continuing to look good for Democrats in most competitive races, we’re changing our rating in 11 contests―nine move toward the left, while the other two move in the direction of the GOP. You can find all our Senate, gubernatorial, and House ratings at each link. • AR-02 (Lean R to Tossup): We're as amazed as anyone that Arkansas' 2nd Congressional District around Little Rock, turf that does not share many of the hallmarks of suburban areas that have abandoned the GOP, is this competitive, but here we are. Democrats and Republicans alike have poured large sums into this contest, and polling has shown a battle that's now neck-and-neck between Democrat Joyce Elliott and Republican Rep. French Hill. Surveys have also found Joe Biden edging out Donald Trump, a significant turnaround from Trump's 52-42 win. • IL-06 (Likely D to Safe D): Republicans have shown little interest in targeting freshman Democratic Rep. Sean...
    Among the many municipal items on the Denver ballot this November is a measure that would effectively end the Mile High City's three-decade-old prohibition of pit bulls. But while proponents of the concept typically focus their arguments on the general ineffectiveness of breed-specific legislation and how the proposal will not only allow pit-bull owners to emerge from the shadows but give authorities better ways to enhance safety, Teresa Browning has another reason why the ban should go. She says a former domestic partner reported that she was illegally sheltering a pit bull that was actually registered as an approved breed — but because of the Denver law's vague language, she was terrified that the dog would be taken away from her, anyway. "It's something I still worry about," Browning says. "I'm praying that November will end my fear of that happening."Related Stories Here's What Denver Residents Will Be Voting On This Election Denver Campaign to Legalize Pit Bulls Revs Up Cheering, Mourning After Denver Pit Bull Legalization Bill Falls One Vote Short Earlier this year, when Denver City Council...
    During an October 9 press conference about COVID-19, Colorado Governor Jared Polis announced that he will extend the statewide order to wear facial coverings in public places for another thirty days; it was set to expire on Monday, October 12. He contextualized the decision by noting that the state is currently experiencing the most problematic data related to the novel coronavirus since July and August. "We need to be better at wearing masks — not because I say to do it or because public-health officials say to do it," Polis allowed. "It's because you care about your health and your family and your neighbors and your job. That's why we're doing it." At the outset of his remarks, Polis revealed that 834 new cases of the virus were reported on the 9th, with the total being similar to counts in recent days. Many of these infections will inevitably translate into an increase in hospitalizations, and Polis pointed out that this scenario carries with it the possibility of the state's health-care system being overwhelmed in ways that could make effective treatment...
    While rejection is often said to be a part of life, it seems not everyone is able to take it on the chin.  Women from across the globe have shared messages from senders who 'claimed to be 'nice guys' - only to quickly turn nasty within a matter of seconds.  Amongst the exchanges, which have been collated in a gallery by Bored Panda, include one man who switched from calling a woman 'beautiful' to a 'b****' after she failed to immediately respond.  Elsewhere, another man threatened to ban one woman from every bar in the city after she said she didn't want to see him again.   Women from across the globe have shared their exchanges with supposed 'nice guys,' who turned nasty after they didn't get their own way.
