    NOTTINGHAM FOREST have reportedly agreed personal terms with Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar. The Frenchman, 24, has been a linked with a move to the Premier League for years. 1Nottingham Forest have reportedly agreed personal terms with AouarCredit: Getty Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was understood to be very keen on the prospect of a swoop until recently, but The Gunners opted to sign Fabio Vieira from Porto instead. Nottingham Forest have since identified Aouar as a top transfer target. And according to Get French Football News, they are edging closer to completing a deal for the sought-after midfielder. Forest have already agreed personal terms with Aouar, who was claimed to have been 'seduced' during talks with the club's management team.

    Tim Anderson and José Abreu singled in the first inning for the Chicago White Sox against Shohei Ohtani. Anderson reached third and Abreu second on a wild pitch. But the Los Angeles Angels two-way star struck out Gavin Sheets to end the threat. The Sox had another big opportunity in the fourth, loading the bases. But Ohtani struck out Josh Harrison for the third out. They made Ohtani work but they couldn’t cash in Wednesday, falling 4-1 in front of 27,612 at Angel Stadium. “We didn’t put the ball in play enough,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “That’s to their credit. Their pitching was good.” The Sox struck out 15 times as they dropped the rubber match of the three-game series. “We got it going, just key times they made a pitch and we didn’t put it in play,” La Russa said. Wednesday was billed as a showcase pitching matchup between Sox starter Michael Kopech and Ohtani. And both had numbers good enough to win. “Obviously he’s a superstar,” Kopech said of Ohtani. “We have to be prepared coming...
    FOR the lip-smacking Marxists plotting to paralyse Britain and sabotage the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, this cost of living crisis is a gift from the gods. It provides cover for direct action against Boris Johnson’s Tory government and the “believe it when we see it” promises which won them the election. 2Communist Alex Gordon’s 40,000-strong RMT union is about to hit the nuclear button — moving in a single step from sabre-rattling to all-out war 2Predictably — and disgracefully — Labour leader Keir Starmer has nothing serious to say about this rampant ­bullyingCredit: PA Militants have been itching for a fight from the moment BoJo walked into Number Ten.

    On the morning of July 16, 1945, in the heart of the New Mexico desert, the world entered the nuclear age. For months, the scientists of the Manhattan Project had been working on a weapon of unparalleled capability, harnessing the power of the atom to unleash a colossal explosion. Now, at exactly 5.29am, they saw the results. As a ball of blazing fire rose above the desert, wrote the project’s director, J. Robert Oppenheimer, the mood was ‘entirely solemn. We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent’. As the fireball became a mushroom cloud, Oppenheimer thought of a line from the Hindu scriptures: ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ That was almost 80 years ago, and since then only two nuclear weapons have been used in anger. One was Little Boy, the atomic bomb dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, which killed at least 100,000 people. The other was Fat Man, dropped on Nagasaki three days later, which killed...
    The only entrance into the Black Sea remains off-limits to non-Turkish warships, preventing Russia from replacing its sunken cruiser, the British Ministry of Defense said on Thursday. However, Russia continues to have the firepower to strike targets in Ukraine from the Black Sea. After the devastating losses of the Moskva and the Saratov, Russia now has approximately 20 ships in the Black Sea, the British Defense Ministry's Thursday intelligence update said. Russia continues to have capabilities to hit targets on Ukraine's mainland from the sea, but replacing its sunken ships is not possible with a key Turkish-controlled strait closed to most warship traffic. RUSSIAN-TRAINED DOLPHINS GUARDING BLACK SEA NAVAL BASE "Approximately 20 Russian Navy vessels are currently in the Black Sea operational zone, including submarines," the U.K.'s intelligence update said, noting that the "Bosporus Strait remains closed to all non-Turkish warships, rendering Russia unable to replace its lost cruiser Moskva in the Black Sea." The Bosporus Strait was closed by the Turkish government to non-Turkish warship traffic four days after Russia's Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine. The narrow passageway...
    Russian President Vladimir Putin ominously warned on Wednesday that if any other country intervenes in Ukraine, Russia will respond with “instruments… nobody else can boast of, and we will use them if we have to.” In recent days, Russian state media has been hyping up the same rhetoric, bombarding audiences with jarring declarations that World War III is imminent. Every major channel is promoting the idea of an inevitable, never-before-seen escalation over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which is being portrayed as a war waged against the Kremlin by the collective West. Patriotic citizens are now being primed for the idea that even the worst outcome is a good thing, because those dying for the motherland will skyrocket to paradise. During Tuesday’s broadcast of 60 Minutes, Vladimir Avatkov of Russia’s Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs delivered an Orwellian perspective of current events. “What is happening right now is not about Ukraine, but about the future world order, which has no room for hegemony and where Russia can’t be isolated.” Host Olga Skabeeva described a summit hosted by the...
    Etsy has been home to many independent sellers and small businesses since its launch in 2005. The platform has grown to a billion-dollar enterprise with a focus on handmade and vintage items and craft supplies. In February, the company’s CEO Josh Silverman reported that Etsy had seen its most profitable year on record with revenue and shares at an all-time high. While this was good news for executives and investors, in a surprising turn of events, there is some less than promising news for sellers: Etsy was raising its transaction fees by 30 percent. Fees saw an increase from 5 percent to 6.5 percent beginning April 11. Etsy sellers didn’t take this lying down. Shortly after hearing of the increase in seller fees, Kristi Cassidy, an active Etsy seller since 2007 known for gothic wedding dresses, decided to take a stand. She headed to the Etsy sellers subreddit and wrote “I wonder what would happen if, on April 11, so many sellers put their shops on vacation mode that Etsy starts shitting bricks.” Thus, the Etsy strike was born....
    Warnings about children's mental health are sounding loudly with students back in school but still coping with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. As with so many other things, the help they need is underfunded and often just plain absent—and it’s a problem teachers have been pointing to for years. According to experts, years of increasing childhood depression and anxiety were intensified still further by the pandemic in a range of ways, including being cut off from the supports in-person schooling can provide, being isolated from friends, and, in the case of kids in abusive homes, being stuck in that abusive environment without a break. More than 200,000 children have also lost a parent or caregiver to COVID-19. Meanwhile, four states have only one school psychologist per 4,000 students, and only Idaho and Washington, D.C., meet the nationally recommended ratio of one psychologist per 500 students. President Joe Biden is proposing $1 billion in federal funding to hire more counselors and psychologists and pay for suicide prevention programs, but we know what usually happens when Biden proposes funding: Republicans unite to block it. California teachers have the...
    Pentagon spokesman John Kirby would not say if the U.S. believes Russian military forces have taken a position to attack Ukraine on Monday, but he did say he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin could strike at any moment. The Defense Department updated reporters on Monday about the tense situation in Eastern Europe, just days after White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan stated his belief that such an invasion was imminent. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated earlier in the day that Ukrainians are expecting an invasion on Wednesday. Those close to Zelensky later claimed the president made the comment in jest. Kirby addressed reporters on Monday afternoon about the potential for an invasion of Ukraine by Russia. Kirby’s answers during an exchange with Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin offered little clarity on the matter. Griffin asked, “Are you still suggesting that Putin has not taken the decision to invade Ukraine?” Kirby said that they do not believe that Putin has made a final determination yet as to whether Russian troops will invade. Citing Zelensky’s comment about a Wednesday strike, Griffin asked:...

    Demonstrators outside the Elizabeth Detention Center in New Jersey, 2017 Immigrants detained at several detention facilities in California last year held hunger strikes, prayer vigils, and other peaceful demonstrations to draw attention to dangerous conditions amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. Their message to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and detention sites was an urgent one: Our lives are at risk. Please do something to keep us safe. But in a complaint filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Foundation of Northern California and legal partners, detained immigrants say that officials instead retaliated against them, inflicting pepper spray and shooting pepper bullets, revoking access to lawyers and advocates, denying access to food items and medical care, even “confiscating prescription medication and walking canes.” Lilian Marquez was among the detained immigrants early last spring engaged in a hunger strike at the privately operated Mesa Verde Detention Center in California. The Fresno Bee reported she consumed just water and vitamins for four days, joining a strike only after verbal and written complaints to officials went unheeded. But rather than addressing their concerns, officials threatened to shut down commissary access—thus blocking food and...
    Kirby, however, did not address the question. Instead, he chided the Politico report for being based on "the unlawful disclosure of classified information." "What I can tell you is that we have been monitoring as close as we can intelligence that led us to believe that we are in a very dynamic, and in some cases, specific threat environment, number one," Kirby began. "Number two, as Gen. McKenzie said, we're going to investigate. We're going to get to the bottom of what happened last Thursday. Thirteen precious lives were lost. We're going to take that seriously, and we're not going to investigate it in public." "Number three, I am absolutely not going to speak to a — a — a press story that was informed by the unlawful disclosure of classified information and sensitive deliberations here in the Pentagon," Kirby continued. "Just not going to do it."“The US knew roughly where and when the attack would take place on Thursday.

    The Pentagon has said that two ISIS-K targets had been killed and one wounded in the drone strike responding to the suicide attack in Kabul, after earlier confirming only one kill.  The two killed targets were 'high profile' and involved in planning the airport attack, but were not senior members of ISIS-K, Army Major Gen. William D. 'Hank' Taylor said at a Pentagon briefing on Saturday.   The Pentagon described the two killed targets as a 'planner' and 'facilitator' of ISIS-K plots, but declined to name them.  Another defense official told CNN that the strike on Friday only took place after surveillance on the compound confirmed the target's wife and children had left.  Meanwhile, Taliban forces sealed off Kabul's airport Saturday to most Afghans hoping for evacuation, as the operation enters its final hours.

    The US could release an Afghan drug lord to the Taliban in exchange for their last American hostage - but only if they provide a confirmation of life. Drug lord Bashir Noorzai, who is a top figure in the Pashtun tribe which elusive Taliban Supreme Commander Hibatullah Akhundzada belongs, has been held in a federal prison for the last 16 years. He travelled to the US in 2005 under the pretext of diplomatic talks, but upon arrival he was arrested by the DEA for his role in a global heroin trade. President Biden could release an Afghan drug lord to the Taliban in exchange for their last American hostage - but only if they provide a confirmation of life And now, Newsweek reports that President Biden is prepared to swap Noorzai with the Taliban in exchange for Mark Frerichs, who was the last American to be taken hostage by the group. Frerichs was taken hostage by the Taliban in January last year by a group believed to be associated with the Haqqani network - who are a militia group positioned on the...

    Teamsters aims to step up efforts to unionize Amazon workers S&P 500 Rises for a Third Day and Nasdaq Sets Record A day of high drama in Group E saw top spot change twice in the final six minutes as Sweden pipped Spain to top spot in added time with a 3-2 win over Poland. © Provided by CBS Sports Spain celebrate Pablo Sarabia's goal in their 5-0 win over Slovakia at Euro 2020 For a moment it seemed Robert Lewandowski might carry Poland into the last 16 but Viktor Claesson's late goal ensured that Sweden retained the top spot they had held coming into the final round of games but seemed destined to lose as Spain ran in the goals in Seville. A 5-0 win over Slovakia was certainly what they needed after a frustrating start to Euro 2020 that saw them drop four points, however, they had left it too late to avoid a round of 16 draw with Croatia that promises to be one of the most intriguing fixtures of the opening knockout round.  Spain get...
    A bombed-out car in the Gaza Strip has sparked speculation that Israel has developed its own version of America's six-bladed 'ninja missiles'. The car - a while Citroen Xsara - was blown up in a strike by the Israeli air force on Tuesday to the west of Gaza City in an attack the IDF said targeted operatives of a Hamas 'suicide submarine'.  Video of the strike, released by the IDF, shows the driver's side of the car being struck by a missile which blows out the windows and doors but otherwise leaves the vehicle intact as it rolls to a stop on a nearby roundabout. The pattern of damage is similar, though not identical to, damage caused by R9X 'ninja missiles' - dud Hellfire rockets that use a combination of sheer force and six long blades to shred targets and have been used by the US in Lybia, Syria and Iraq.  That has raised questions over whether the Israeli military, with its strong ties to the US, has been able to develop its own version of the missile.  A...
    THE dream of a clean sweep  lives on… but they’re going to have to brush up a bit if it is to become a reality.

And there – heartbreakingly for the Toffees, happily for City – was Ilkay Gundogan to throw himself and nod a diving header into an empty net. Not exactly out of jail…near total possession and few hairy moments of their own at the back was proof of that.

    NEW YORK (AP) — If a minor league player says an umpire is acting like a robot this year, he might be right. Computer umpires for balls and strikes are coming to a low-level minor league but are a while away from the big leagues. Major League Baseball plans to use Automated Ball-Strike technology (ABS) in eight of nine ballparks at the Low-A Southeast League, which starts play May 4 across Florida as minor league baseball resumes after a one-year break caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The Major League Baseball Umpires Association agreed in its labor contract that started in 2020 to cooperate and assist if Commissioner Rob Manfred decides to utilize the system at the major league level. MLB intends to include the subject in talks this year to replace the agreement with the players’ association that expires Dec. 1. “It’s hard to handicap if, when or how it might be employed at the major league level, because it is a pretty substantial difference from the way the game is called today,” Chris Marinak, MLB’s chief operations and strategy officer, said...

    Kaali Khuhi Movie Review: In the opening scene of Kaali Khuhi set during a rainy night, an villager, tormented by cries of babies, opens up a sealed black well (the titular kaali khuhi) in his village, only to be dragged down to his death by a hand. Later, another villager sees a young girl in the middle of the road and drops her back in the village, mistaking her to be someone’s daughter. In the village, she goes to one particular house and terrifies the old lady living there to unconsciousness, before shutting herself in a small room on the first floor of the same house. Kaali Khuhi Trailer: Sanjeeda Sheikh And Shabana Azmi’s Horror Film Will Make You Squirmish.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — With just nine days to go until New York City schools are set to reopen, a vote could derail the plan. The teachers union may vote as early as Tuesday to authorize a potential strike over safety concerns. The delegates will meet this afternoon and could give their union president the power to call a strike. According to the United Federation of Teachers, New York is the only big-city school system in the U.S. that plans to reopen for in-person teaching in September. “We would not go back unless independent medical experts gave us the stamp of approval,” UFT President Michael Mulgrew said. “It’s not like the mayor is going to convince me to not have a mandatory testing.” As it stands, students will learn five days a week with a choice of a blended learning plan or full remote.

    A convicted terrorist and follower of 'Blind Sheikh' Omar Abdel-Rahman has been released from jail after serving his 30-year sentence. Victor Alvarez, 54, was jailed in 1996 for his part in a plot to blow up the UN headquarters, New York FBI office, as well as bridges and tunnels in the city. But prosecutors, who described Alvarez as 'borderline retarded' at his trial, fear he will become violent again after he vowed to stop taking his psychiatric medication.  Victor Alvarez, a follower of 'Blind Sheikh' Omar Abdel-Rahman (left and right) was jailed in 1996 for his part in a plot to bomb New York, and has been released from jail this week Alvarez insisted on attending his parole hearing in-person on Thursday, specifically because he wanted to tell the judge of his intention to refuse treatment. 'I want to be free from mental health treatment. I want to be free now,' he told his attorney at the hearing, according to the New York Post. In 1993, Alvarez was one of nine followers of Abdel-Rahman - an associate of...

    Looters struck in Manhattan again on Tuesday, though the damage appeared to be a much smaller than the outright chaos of the previous night, with cops seen making several arrests outside of stores. Videos posted on social media by reporters showed the NYPD making arrests after a group broke into a Zara at Broadway and Vesey Street near the World Trade Center. A PBS reporter said he witnessed a brawl erupt outside the clothing store, as a protester attempted to stop the looting.
