    Conor McGregor is the only UFC fighter yet to be drug tested by USADA this year despite his plans to return to the octagon in the coming months, according to reports. McGregor, 34, has been out of action since suffering a gruesome leg break against Dustin Poirier in July 2021, which kept him out of training for close to a year. Now the Irishman is closing in on a return to action after recent footage on social media showed him looking sharp in the gym, with potential bouts against Michael Chandler and Justin Gaethje mooted and Floyd Mayweather also keen to bring him back over to boxing for another money-spinning crossover event.

    Democrat Senator Chris Murphy on Sunday rejected the idea of getting President Joe Biden involved in his chamber's bipartisan negotiations on gun reform following a spate of devastating mass shootings - but said change was 'closer than ever before.'  'I think the Senate needs to do this ourselves. I have talked to the White House every single day since these negotiations began. But, right now, the Senate needs to handle these negotiations,' he said on CNN's State of the Union.  It comes as Senators on both sides of the aisle are expressing a new optimism that years of gridlock on firearms legislation could finally be broken.  Republican Senator Pat Toomey, who co-led a bipartisan effort to expand background checks in 2013, said he hoped any proposal that comes to the floor could get the support of 'at least half' of his caucus. Both Murphy and Toomey are part of a small group of senators in talks to produce a proposal for the Senate to vote on by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's stated deadline of this week. Elected officials have...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Wheelchair etiquette is something many have never been taught, but it’s simple information that is more important to know than ever to know. In total, 3.3 million Americans use wheelchairs, and that number is expected to grow. WCCO talked with Chad Wilson, an expert on disability rights, who presented five simple but deeply important things to bear in mind. Winter in Minnesota can be a nuisance for some and a danger for others. Wilson drove from Chanhassen to Minneapolis for WCCO’s interview on wheelchair etiquette and accessibility and, in real time, he made his point. He pointed out to our crew how he wasn’t able to park in a street space because the snow banks were too high for his ramp to extend. “Every day I get to my office, I would have to cross the light rail tracks, and being a wheelchair user that can be scary. There were a few times I got stuck,” he said. “Thankfully people pushed me out of the way, nothing bad happened. Just goes to show how important clearing off...
    On Australia, Wilton City has decided to set new rules to deal with the consequences Global warming. As indicated by the Government of New South Wales, a new “Development Control Plan” (DCP) parallel to our local urban plan is due to be finalized in the second half of 2021. Connected Sent by BFM TV. Operations include supplying water heaters via solar panels, installing a passive cooling system, or installing an alternative energy source. Paint the roofs light But it also draws attention as a rule about the color of the roof above all else. In fact, the city prefers new house constructions to have white or light colored roofs “where possible”. This makes it possible to better reflect sunlight, thus controlling the heat of the building. Air conditioning can be used sparingly, PFM TV explains. In addition, the text provides for planting several trees, which will bring more freshness in the event of extreme heat, with temperatures rising above 50 degrees this summer. The municipality expects these new rules to initially apply to an environment that can accommodate 9,000 new...
    Kamala Harris hosted DACA recipients and dreamers on Thursday following the Texas federal court decision ruling last week that the program protecting illegal immigrants was created unlawfully by former President Barack Obama. 'I want to make clear to the dreamers that are here, and to those who are watching from home, this is your home, this is your home, and we see you and you are not alone,' Harris assured the group as she spoke to the press ahead of the meeting. The vice president assured those in the meeting that the Texas court ruling 'will not immediately impact current DACA recipients, also it will put hundreds of thousands of young immigrants in jeopardy. But our administration is taking action.' President Joe Biden vowed to appeal the ruling, which declared the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program illegal. He called the decision 'deeply disappointing' and is urging Congress to act to protect the hundred of thousands of so-called Dreamers who are and aren't currently protected under DACA. 'We need Congress to finally create a pathway towards citizenship,' Harris said. ...
    The Democratic Congress is taking a cautious approach on one of their most powerful tools for undoing damage wrought by Trump, the Congressional Review Act (CRA). One of the problems they face is in the nature of that tool. It allows Congress to overrule an administration's regulations within an established rule period. But like pretty much anything cooked up by Newt Gingrich (and it was created when he was House Speaker in 1996) it was designed to be more helpful to Republicans than to Democrats; it allows for total destruction of regulations (a perennial Republican goal), rather than the precision revising of regulations. The very tricky thing Gingrich did was preclude a subsequent administration from making a similar rule in the future unless it is authorized by new legislation. It also bars judicial review—meaning that a resolution of disapproval cannot be challenged in federal court. It's also another thing that Republicans determined should be expedited, not subject to a filibuster. In the case of three Trump rules, however, the caution about using the CRA didn't overcome the need to undo...

On Wednesday, March 31, 2021 an episode of ABC's Wheel of Fortune, one crossword puzzle exposed a particular rule of the show that has fan up in arms. Wheel of Fortune does not need to be like this#WheelOfFortune pic.twitter.com/EQ9E2R00dE— solar noon enthusiast (@slashkevin) March 31, 2021 Why are Wheel of Fortune fans calling for this rule to be changed on the game show? Contestant David Pederson decided to solve the puzzle, with which long-time Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak warned Peterson "Don't Add Anything." Pederson went on to answer the puzzle correctly, except he added the word 'and'. Pederson was told he was incorrect and then the very next contestant swooped in and answered the puzzle the exact same way, just without the 'and', and won. The other contestant remarked, " I thought that's what you said." As if almost she was incredulous about the ruling. 1The Puzzle that Pederson lost to on a technicality What are people's responses to...
    Obesity is one of the great health problems of the Western world. One of the main problems is that although it may not seem like it, it is very difficult to treat. Besides diet and healthy living, the only two effective treatments are bariatric surgery (such as stomach reduction) and medications. The problem is that the first option is very invasive, while in the second case, the remedies often carry significant side effects. But now a drug has been discovered that experts say “change the rules of the game”, pick up Science Alert. This experimental treatment, recently tested by scientists and detailed in a study published this week, could open new doors for treat obese patients with this medicine for weight loss. In the study, which involved almost 2,000 obese adults from 16 different countries, the participants took a weekly dose of a drug called semaglutide, an existing remedy already used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. A control group took only a placebo, instead of the drug. Both groups received a lifestyle intervention course designed to promote...
    The governor of Oregon has sparked outrage by saying that neighbors should call the police if they find another family celebrating Thanksgiving with a large gathering in their home, in what one local official said turned people into 'second-rate slaves' in their own homes. Kate Brown, the Democrat ruler of the state, announced on November 17 that new restrictions would be put in place the following day, with no more than six people allowed inside any one home. Critics said the 'freeze', as the restrictions were termed, was unconstitutional. Kate Brown, the governor of Oregon, introduced the two-week 'freeze' on November 17 Protesters in Oregon complained against the new restrictions in Salem on Saturday Demonstrators gathered outside Brown's residence on Saturday to call for her impeachment Tootie Smith, elected in November as chair of Clackamas County - which incorporates part of Portland - said that the ruling would make 'second-rate slaves' of people in their own homes, and the sheriff of Marion County, which includes the capital Salem, said it was 'counterproductive'.

    (CNN)In the wake of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's threat that "everything is on the table" if Democrats retake the majority this fall, there's been considerable focus on both what they might consider and whether they will have the votes to do it.Among the many proposals -- add seats to the Supreme Court, grant statehood to DC and Puerto Rico -- floated as ways to pay back Republicans for their decision to push a Supreme Court confirmation fight this close to the election, the one that seems the most achievable is the elimination of the filibuster.The filibuster -- essentially the ability of one senator to block a floor vote at any time, a la "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" -- has been eroded steadily over the past few decades. That process sped up in 2013, when then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid got rid of the need for 60 votes to end debate over judicial nominations (with the exception of Supreme Court nominees). When Republicans took over the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell changed the rules again to allow a...
    Actress Anangsha Biswas says she has realised that the rules in the Hindi film industry are unfair and proudly calls herself an outsider. Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely death on June 14 has sparked a heated debate about “insiders and outsiders” and nepotism in Bollywood. “I am a theatre actor, I’m trained in acting from Sydney. In my initial years I thought I would learn and prove my talent, and get ahead in my career. Soon I realised that the rules of this industry were unfair,” Anangsha said. Aditi Rao Hydari on Insider-Outsider Debate: We Oversee Certain Things but There Is a Beautiful Side to Our Industry Too She added: “No matter how much I worked hard, it boiled down to who I knew in the industry, and unfortunately I knew no one.” Anangsha says she wants the industry to be fair. “I’m an outsider and I’m proud to be one, I never wanted things to be easy but, yes, I did wish for it to be fair. I am after all as good as the opportunities I get to...
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo took another swipe at the NYPD during a conference call with reporters on Wednesday where he said cops 'weren't doing their jobs' enforcing social distancing rules  Gov. Andrew Cuomo took another swipe at the NYPD on Wednesday, this time for not enforcing social distancing rules, after blaming the police department for the fast rising crime across New York City, as he touted his pandemic response book despite widespread criticism of it.  On Wednesday, Cuomo hosted a conference call for reporters instead of putting on his usual daily press conference.  He pontificated about what the NYPD should be doing to enforce social distancing rules at bars and restaurants, then defended writing a book about the pandemic, saying other people had written about him without him.  Asked whether or not he would be donating the proceeds of book sales to charity or keeping them, he hesitated then eventually said: 'I will be making contribution to a COVID-related entity.  'A lot of it depends on whether or not the book sells so I hope you guys buy it.'   Cuomo...
    Chinese President Xi JinpingAris Messinis | Pool | Reuters A major plan that will form part of China's global technology push has been dubbed as hype and will face a number of challenges, a technology industry body told CNBC. China Standards 2035 is an ambitious 15-year blueprint that Beijing is expected to release this year. It will lay out China's plans to set the global standards for the next-generation of technologies.  Standards have been crucial for the development of technologies we use today such as 4G mobile networks or Wi-Fi. They are technical specifications that not only outline how technologies work but also interoperability. Standards are part of the reason why you can go abroad and still use mobile networks.  Typically, the development of standards have been dominated by U.S. and European companies and experts. But with China Standards 2035, Beijing is pushing domestic firms and experts to be part of the global effort to set standards for next-generation technologies. "This is an ambition to set the rules for the future world, especially the technological rules as we enter into a...
