    Getty Ravens RB Justice Hill running the ball in a regular season game on September 18, 2022. Through the first two games of the 2022 regular season, the Baltimore Ravens‘ passing attack has been potent and highly efficient. Unfortunately, the same can not be said for their running game which uncharacteristically currently ranks near the bottom half of the league. Their best plays and the vast majority of the yards they have gained on the ground have come from the herculean contributions of their dynamic dual-threat quarterback, Lamar Jackson. While they have produced multiple big plays of 20 or more yards through the air, their longest rush and only to go for 20 or more yards so far was the 79-yard touchdown Jackson ripped off in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins. While the Ravens have been without their top two running backs to start the season with J.K. Dobbins still ramping up and Gus Edwards beginning the year on the PUP list, they are still in far better shape at the position than they were this time...
    Russian President Vladimir Putin is depopulating Ukraine’s territory and replacing those Ukrainian citizens with new Russian residents, according to the United States. Secretary of State Antony Blinken leveled the charge during a U.N. Security Council meeting following a presentation from an international investigator who likewise questioned “the transfer of populations from Ukraine [to] outside — particularly children.” Blinken linked the movement of people to Putin’s initiative to stage so-called referenda, an ersatz political process designed to formalize Russia’s assertion of sovereignty over the partially occupied territories. “It is even more alarming when coupled with the filtration operation that Russian forces have been carrying out across parts of Ukraine that they control,” Blinken told the council. “Now, this is a diabolical strategy, violently uprooting thousands of Ukrainians, bus in Russians to replace them, call a vote, manipulate the results to show near unanimous support for joining the Russian Federation.” The impending referenda will take place between Sept. 23 and Sept. 27, just a few days after their scheduling was announced. The putative votes will ensure that “a geopolitical transformation of the...
    Babies in the womb like the flavor of carrots and do not like the taste of kale, according to a new study. Researchers at Durham University identified how babies in the womb react differently to the tastes of foods eaten by the mother via 4D ultrasounds of fetuses. Unborn babies smiled when exposed to carrots, but their lips stretched out in apparent grimaces when given kale, researchers found. ANTS OUTNUMBER PEOPLE BY 2.5 MILLION TIMES: STUDY The study, published in Psychological Science, relied on the ultrasound scans of 100 pregnant women after they ate vegetables. The babies showed more “laughter-face” reactions when exposed to carrots, and they showed more “cry-face” reactions when exposed to kale, the study said. The fetuses analyzed in the study were at 32 to 26 weeks of gestational age. The reactions were determined by researchers looking at the "complex facial expressions" induced by "multiple muscular actions." Researchers said the study had implications for the dietary habits of babies' eating habits. "A number of studies have suggested that babies can...
    The Republican nominee for governor has previously said he supports banning abortion 'at conception' with no exceptions. On Monday, more than 5,000 anti-abortion Pennsylvanians rallied in Harrisburg, the state capital, to celebrate the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and to push for further abortion restrictions. State Sen. Doug Mastriano, the Republican nominee for governor, attended the event and gave an interview to The Daily Signal, a conservative media outlet. Mastriano's presence at the Pennsylvania March for Life is the latest instance of the Republican's embrace of the furthest extreme of anti-abortion policy. While only 11% of Pennsylvania voters say they believe that abortion should be illegal in all cases, according to polling from Franklin & Marshall College, Mastriano has consistently affirmed that he supports a total ban on the procedure. Some reporting suggested that, since winning his primary, the Republican nominee had tried to downplay his support for a ban on abortion, which he once called his number one issue during a primary debate. During that debate, Mastriano affirmed his commitment to ending abortion in Pennsylvania and...

    New York Times correspondent and CNN analyst Maggie Haberman flagged a key admission during former President Donald Trump’s wild interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. Haberman, a well-known conduit for Trumpworld reporting and Trump-whisperer analysis, has dropped scoop after scoop since the bombshell search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort home, and the related investigation of Trump for crimes involving the Espionage Act. And on Wednesday night, Haberman provided almost a blow-by-blow commentary on Trump’s exclusive interview on the most recent edition of Fox News’s Hannity. The wild interview featured several jaw-dropping moments, including the one in which Trump told Hannity he can declassify a document “by thinking about it.” “If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying, ‘It’s declassified,’ even by thinking about it because you’re sending it to Mar-a-Lago or wherever you’re sending it. And there doesn’t have to be a process. There can be a process but there doesn’t have to be. You’re the president. You make that decision. So when you send it, it’s declassified. I declassified everything,” Trump said. But Haberman noted that while the humorous psychic angle...
    Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz said if he were on Donald Trump's legal team, the first thing he would do is move to have New York Attorney General Letitia James recused and disqualified from prosecuting the former president and his family on fraud charges. "I like Letitia James. She's a very nice person, but she campaigned on the promise to get Trump before seeing any evidence, and so she is just fulfilling a campaign promise," he told Newsmax. "You can't have prosecutors even civilly prosecuting a defendant if they made a campaign promise that they have to fill. They are not neutral and objective." SEE IT: TRUMP RIPS DON LEMON FOLLOWING LOSS OF PRIME-TIME SHOW Dershowitz, who is also a professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, wondered why James and her office were involved in this to begin with.

    Getty The NFL Rookie of the Year award is a coveted honor. Representing offense, Cincinnati Bengals phenom Ja’Marr Chase won it in 2021. Odell Beckham Jr. was the last receiver before in 2014. You have to go back to 2004 and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to find the last time a Pittsburgh Steelers player was named Offensive Rookie of the Year. George Pickens, the darling of the Steelers’ offseason, was the preseason projection to win Rookie of the Year. The hype surrounding him was real.

    Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) received the endorsement of a longtime Democrat and Palm Beach County official on Tuesday, saying that "there is too much on the line" ahead of the November gubernatorial election. Dave Kerner is the county's Democratic commissioner, as well as the former two-term mayor. He is also a former City of Alachua law enforcement officer and served in Florida's House of Representatives as the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee for two terms. "Endorsing Gov. @RonDeSantisFL was the obvious choice this election cycle. Gov. DeSantis' Dem opponent has called for reallocation of resources away from law enforcement. FL cannot afford people like Charlie Crist who wants to defund the police & make our communities less safe," Kerner tweeted.

    The Wisconsin Republican once said he 'wasn't concerned' by the mob that stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 — but would have been if there were 'Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters.' Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) said in an interview on Tuesday that he condemns white supremacy. But during his two terms in the Senate, Johnsons has often given credence to racist and xenophobic views while downplaying the threat posed by violent white supremacist extremists. In an appearance on Fox Business Network, Johnson baselessly accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Department of Justice of politicization and attacked the agencies for not investigating Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden's son. He then complained that Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI), one of his Democratic colleagues on the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, was too focused on the threat of white supremacist violence. "When I was chairman of Homeland Security, we would have an annual threat hearing, and my ranking member would always be bringing up white supremacy, which, you know, I condone — I mean, I condemn," Johnson told...
    Robert Sarver, owner of the NBA's Phoenix Suns and the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury, has announced he will sell both teams after he became embroiled in controversy over his comments toward women and others. Sarver said in a Wednesday statement he thought the yearlong suspension would have been enough punishment but that "our current unforgiving climate" made him have to sell the teams. PAYPAL THREATENS TO EXIT SUNS SPONSORSHIP IF TEAM OWNER ISN’T BOOTED "Words that I deeply regret now overshadow nearly two decades of building organizations that brought people together — and strengthened the Phoenix area — through the unifying power of professional men's and women's basketball," Sarver said. "As a man of faith, I believe in atonement and the path to forgiveness. I expected that the commissioner's one-year suspension would provide the time for me to focus, make amends and remove my personal controversy from the teams that I and so many fans love." Last week, the NBA suspended Sarver from both teams for a year and fined him $10 million after an independent...
    The creator of Dilbert, Scott Adams, announced Tuesday that his comic has been canceled by nearly 77 newspapers, which he says are owned by one media company. Dilbert follows the titular character as he navigates American office culture. Recently, as "woke" culture has permeated workplaces, it has been addressed in Adams's comics. "All of the wokeness and anything that permeated from ESG [environmental, social, and governance] … so that stuff made its way into the business world, and then, it became proper content for Dilbert," he told Fox News. Coincidentally, Adams announced on Twitter that his comic is being stripped from 77 newspapers, which is coming as a "substantial" financial blow to the creator.

    Getty Tom Brady admits his role in Sunday's brawl. As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers await the NFL’s decision on Mike Evans’ suspension appeal, Tom Brady accepts his role in it all. Brady’s heated exchange with Saints defensive back Marshon Lattimore after a questionable call on an incomplete pass led to a bench-clearing brawl on Sunday, September 18. Evans jumped in to defend Brady and shoved Lattimore to the ground, which led to the one-game suspension. “Obviously, if I didn’t run down there to argue with the call … if things weren’t said back and forth between both teams, it could’ve been avoided,” Brady told Jim Gray on the “Let’s Go!” podcast on Monday, September 19. Had a feeling the Bucs were targeting Marshon Lattimore's replacement on Tom Brady's TD … and they did it brilliantly.

    L: HENNY RAY ABRAMS/AFP via Getty Images The comic strip Dilbert is being “cancelled in 77 newspapers this week,” according to a viral tweet from the strip’s creator, Trump supporter Scott Adams. If you assumed that Adams was living off royalties from his strip as he busies himself tweeting conspiracy theories and endorsing losing presidential candidates, you would be wrong: Dilbert is still going — at least for now. Here’s one recent strip featuring “a new character named ‘Dave,’ who is Black but identifies as White,” as described by Louis Casiano of Fox News: “Dave, I need to boost our company’s ESG rating, so I’m promoting you to be our CTO. I know you identify as White, so that won’t help our ESG scores, but would it be too much trouble to identify as gay?” his boss asks. “Depends on how hard you want me to see it,” Dave responds. “Just wear better shirts,” the supervisor replies. That strip is part of a series on corporate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) ratings, which Adams believes are leading to “censorship” of...
    Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) slammed President Joe Biden's border policies Tuesday, claiming they have undermined the principles of democracy. "Democracy depends on the mutual acceptance of rules, norms, and institutions," Kennedy told host Harris Faulkner on The Faulkner Focus. "President Biden's southern border policy has undermined that principle." BIDEN ADMINISTRATION'S OWN MIGRANT FLIGHTS RECEIVE RENEWED SCRUTINY "He has completely opened the southern border, and he has looked the American people in the eye, and he has lied and said the border's closed," he continued. Kennedy further added that the people "don't like being treated like a moron." "They don't like the president lying to them, and when they call the president out, they don't like the president calling them Nazis and racists," he explained. According to the senator, people "don't lock their front door at night because they hate everybody on the outside," instead, "they lock their front door at night because they love people on the inside, and they want to know who's coming in and out of their house, and...
    The husband of a woman who was found naked and clinging to a tree said he didn't see his wife on the day of her disappearance because the married couple slept in separate bedrooms due to his loud snoring.   Debbie Collier, 59, was found dead in a small, steep-sided ravine on September 11 near a wooded area in Tallulah Falls, Georgia, after sending her daughter $2,385 along with a cryptic final message. Her husband Steven, 67, spoke to officers just after 6pm on September 10 after filing a missing persons report - and revealed that he had not seen Debbie since 9pm the night before.   An Athens-Clarke County missing persons report said that the couple, who had been married since 2013, slept in separate bedrooms because Steve was known to snore. The report, seen by DailyMail.com, read: 'He clarified that he and Deborrah sleep in separate bedrooms due to his snoring.' The next morning, Steven woke up early and left the house in Athens, Georgia, to go to work.  He did not recall seeing his wife, but he said he...
    The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol will hold its ninth hearing next week, and it will likely be the panel’s last before releasing its final report by the end of the year.

    The View host Whoopi Goldberg dismissed criticisms of President Joe Biden's recent 60 Minutes interview Tuesday in which he admitted he is not certain about reelection and slammed the idea of entertaining other Democrats who are eager to take his place in 2024. "There is nothing wrong with Joe Biden," Goldberg told her co-hosts. "He has done what nobody else was able to do," she continued.

    United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres opened this week’s gathering of world leaders with a stark acknowledgment that the war in Ukraine will not end through diplomacy anytime soon. Guterres said on Tuesday ahead of the U.N. General Assembly that he spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the man responsible for the war in Ukraine, earlier in the day and that a peace deal is not on the table at this time. MERCENARY GROUP SEEKING 1,500 CONVICTED FELONS TO FIGHT IN UKRAINE, US SAYS It’d be “naive to think that we are close to the possibility of a peace deal,” he said. “I have no illusions that at the present moment, the chances of a peace deal are minimal.” The meeting at the U.N. will come in the aftermath of Ukraine’s most successful counteroffensive to date. Ukraine has gained back several thousand square miles of territory in the northeast, but Russia’s occupation in the south remains fierce. Guterres said geopolitical rifts are currently at "the widest they have been since at least the Cold War,” and he warned that such divides...
    Cleotha Abston, 38, is charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping and tampering with evidence in connection with Eliza Fletcher's death The mother of accused killer Cleotha Abston has insisted her son is innocent, claiming the convicted felon is a 'kind', 'good person' and is once again being 'railroaded' for a violent crime.  Virgie Abston, 65, broke her silence for the first time since her 38-year-old son was arrested in connection to the abduction and murder of jogger Eliza Fletcher, 34, in Memphis, Tennessee on September 2.  Emerging from her low-income apartment complex in north Memphis, the mother told DailyMail.com she is standing by Abston, who declared his innocence to her from jail.  'I talked to him and he said he didn't do it,' she recalled of their conversation.

    GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson (TX) said the Spanish-language ads he is running in his deep-red district were not motivated by a possible primary bid against Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) in 2026, asserting that he is focused instead on his current position in the House. His comments come amid reports that Jackson, the former physician to the president, is weighing a primary bid against Cornyn, who has taken heat from some conservatives for his role in helping negotiate a bipartisan gun reform bill that passed following the Uvalde shooting. “I'm a freshman congressman, for God's sake. I haven't even had my second election yet. So I'm focused on winning in 13 and being the best representative I can be for the constituents in 13,” he told the Washington Examiner. “I do want to be a leader in the state of Texas on taking the country back and keeping Texas red and driving Texas to the right — so I will be all about that,” he said.

    With the Russian forces in Ukraine depleted, the Wagner mercenary group has sought to recruit convicted felons to join the war, but some have declined, according to a senior U.S. defense official. The mercenary group is looking to pad its force by 1,500, "but many are refusing," the official told reporters on Monday afternoon. "Our information indicates that Wagner has been suffering high losses in Ukraine, especially and unsurprisingly among young and inexperienced fighters." The admission by the defense official comes days after a video of Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the Wagner group, went viral of him telling inmates that if they don’t want to join the war, they should send their children to fight instead. He said in a statement later that if he were in prison, he’d “dream of” joining the war to “pay my debt to the motherland,” according to the BBC, which verified the video and geolocated it to a penal colony in Russia’s central Mari El Republic.

    Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi isn’t certain whether the Holocaust occurred. The Iranian leader doubted the validity of the Holocaust during an interview on 60 Minutes that aired Sunday, in which he also provided an update on negotiations between the United States and Iran regarding a potential reentry into the Iran nuclear agreement. “Historical events should be investigated by researchers and historians.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans quickly went public on his motives regarding his altercation and ejection on Sunday, September 18.

Maher hosted a panel with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham and reporter Julia Ioffe. He asked their opinions on what could happen to Trump’s legal problems after the midterms. He was referring to the currently paused criminal investigation into the documents taken from Trump's Mar A Lago residence and a civil investigation into his real estate company.

That money was approved in the state budget, which he said Democrats also voted for, as outlined on the governor's press secretary's Twitter account. "Here are all the Florida house reps and senators who voted for this year’s budget, including the funding for transporting illegal migrants out of Florida into sanctuary states. Almost every Dem voted for it. Now they’re calling a criminal for following through," Christina Pushaw tweeted. WATCH: DESANTIS SAYS FLORIDA IS NOT A 'SANCTUARY STATE' Yes, you read that right. Every single one of these Democrat legislators voted for exactly what they’re feigning outrage at today. pic.twitter.com/DHqfnaBbDr— Christina Pushaw ???? ???????? (@ChristinaPushaw) September 16,...
    Negotiations between the United States and Iran to reenter the 2015 nuclear agreement are at a “stalemate,” according to a senior State Department official. Last month, the European Union, which has been coordinating talks to reconstitute the deal, laid out a final offer, and Iran’s response to the deal was “unacceptable to us,” Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said on Friday during a live Washington Post event. WHITE HOUSE'S MESSAGE TO CHINA: 'NOT THE TIME' FOR HELPING PUTIN Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak) “Well, we're at a stalemate in the sense that Iran in the latest round of negotiations has given us a pretty tough response,” she explained, “one that's unacceptable to us. We've sent back a message about what we believe is necessary and what are critical elements here.” State Department spokesman Ned Price declined to provide details of the feedback they provided following Iran’s latest response. Earlier this week, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told reporters that a deal in the near future is “unlikely.” “Iran’s response to the proposal...
    Last month brought severe drought, wildfires, and sweltering-hot temperatures to many parts of the world, including North America and Europe, which both experienced their hottest-ever Augusts on record, according to a report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Overall, NOAA said, record-warm temperatures encompassed roughly 8.2% of the world’s surface last month. Both Europe and China saw their warmest-ever summers, the report found, while North America had its second-warmest period ever ranging from June to August. Extreme heat-induced wildfires and drought conditions also spiked in August. More than 33,000 fires were detected in the Brazilian Amazon this August, NOAA found, the highest monthly amount since more than 10 years ago. Antarctic Sea ice also reached a record low, falling to 4.2% below average in August.

    Alabama said it will be unable to execute convicted murderer Alan Eugene Miller with the untested method of nitrogen hypoxia by next week, when he is scheduled to be put to death. Miller claimed he signed a document in 2018 saying his preferred method of execution was nitrogen hypoxia, but a signed affidavit from the commissioner of the state Department of Corrections, John Hamm, said the state is unable to fulfill that request by next week.

    New Hampshire Republican Senate nominee Don Bolduc said just last month that Donald Trump really won the 2020 presidential election. Two days after winning the New Hampshire Republican Senate nomination, Don Bolduc has already done a complete flip-flop on whether the 2020 presidential election was stolen: Just weeks after repeating the lie that former President Donald Trump was the real winner, he said Thursday that President Joe Biden is "the legitimate president of this country." In an appearance on Fox News, the retired Army brigadier general was asked about his earlier insistence that President Joe Biden was not legitimately elected, and was shown footage of his comments during a candidates debate on Aug. 14: "I signed a letter with 120 other generals and admirals saying that Trump won the election and damn it, I stand by my letter." Bolduc responded by claiming that he had recently become convinced that Trump lost. "So, you know, we, you know, live and learn, right? And I've done a lot of research on this and I've spent the past couple of weeks talking to...
    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has sent illegal immigrants from his state to Martha's Vineyard. At a news conference Thursday, he had a message for President Joe Biden and the Democrats: "We are not a sanctuary state, and it's better to go to a sanctuary jurisdiction, and yes, we will help facilitate that transport for you to go to greener pastures," DeSantis said.

    Approximately 40% of female service members have limited to no access to abortion services where they live or are stationed currently. Roughly 80,000 of the approximately 450,000 active-duty service members serve in states that have implemented or will soon implement additional abortion restrictions, per a new paper from RAND Corporation that was released Wednesday. The other 370,000 male soldiers and their families could also be affected by the push from conservative state legislatures to curb abortion access. UKRAINE SAYS IT SHOT DOWN RUSSIAN-ACQUIRED IRANIAN DRONE IN KHARKIV Five thousand to 7,400 active-duty servicewomen and Defense Department-employed civilian women have abortions annually. Living in states that have imposed abortion restrictions will make getting the procedure more challenging. If one of these women seeks an abortion, there will likely be three choices, per the paper: request permission to travel to another state, have the procedure done in a jurisdiction where it is illegal, or "seek a medication abortion in a state with a full or partial ban and risk judicial punishment." There is roughly the same number of civilians in the department...
    China claims to have found a new crystal on the moon containing a previously unknown mineral that it claims will help experts understand the moon's origin and evolution.

ARTEMIS I: WHERE DO THINGS STAND NOW? The head of the China Atomic Energy Authority revealed the name of the mineral as Changesite-(Y) and said it was a phosphate mineral found in basalt particles, according to the report from the state-run publication.

    (CNN)Tom Brady remarked on his latest podcast appearance that he is "close to the end" of his NFL career as he continued to hint at his retirement. Brady, now 45 years old, has had a tumultuous offseason, retiring in February only to later reverse that decision. In the midst of August's training camp, Brady took an 11-day leave of absence to "deal with personal things," according to his head coach Todd Bowles.Last week, Brady said: "As you get older, life changes quite a bit. There's different responsibilities that take form in your life. There's different perspectives you gain."The seven-time Super Bowl champion, speaking on his regularly scheduled 'Let's Go!' podcast with co-host Jim Gray on Tuesday, said that he is "feeling more than things in the past for some reason" as he competes in his 23rd NFL season.

    In a statement provided Tuesday to The Tennessee Star, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) said it followed standard procedure on securing and testing a sexual assault kit (SAK) in a case related to Cleotha Abston, who is also accused of kidnapping and murdering Eliza Fletcher. The following is part of TBI’s statement: On Sunday, September 4th, during the active investigation into the abduction of Eliza Fletcher, TBI was made aware by the Memphis Police Department of a sexual assault kit submission that might be linked to an unrelated open MPD investigation into a sexual assault that occurred in September of 2021 in which Cleotha Abston may have been a suspect. Memphis Police submitted the SAK on September 23, 2021, and the evidence was put into the queue of unknown assailant kits, as no request was made for TBI analysis to be expedited, and no suspect information or DNA standard was included in the submission. Abston is accused of kidnapping and raping an unknown victim in September of 2021. But the SAK from that case was not expedited to the...
    Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense claimed on Tuesday for the first time that it shot down an Iranian drone launched by Russians. The ministry posted photos of the wreckage of the drone on social media and identified it as a Shahed-136. It said the army shot down the drone near Kupiansk, Kharkiv, the location of Ukraine’s ongoing and most successful counteroffensive since Russia invaded in late February. US: RUSSIA TO PURCHASE ROCKETS AND ARTILLERY SHELLS IN ARMS DEAL WITH NORTH KOREA Ukrainian officials did not provide many details about the drone, and Pentagon spokesman Air Force Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder could not confirm the use of the Iranian drone during Tuesday's briefing. The Biden administration warned publicly back in July that Russia was looking to acquire hundreds of unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs. Administration officials confirmed to the Washington Examiner in late August that they had acquired the drones. "We assess that Russia intends to use these Iranian UAVs, which can conduct air-to-surface attacks, electronic warfare, and targeting, on the battlefield in Ukraine," they said. "The Russian military is suffering from...
    In a little more than a decade, Tesla's computer chips will be able to perform more operations than the human brain, if the car manufacturer continues improving its technology. The electric car company's new microchip, the D1, manages 362 trillion operations per second, the measure of a computer’s processing power. The power of the chip is already working at over 36% of what the human brain can, which is capable of one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) operations per second, according to a study by Vanarama. "These chips have been instrumental in Tesla’s existing automated driving functions, but there is so much more potential over the next decade," the company said. TWITTER SHAREHOLDERS FINALIZE VOTE TO APPROVE SALE TO MUSK AHEAD OF TRIAL Tesla's microchips are increasing in capability at a rate of 486% every year. By analyzing the company's first chip, an Nvidia component from 2016, Vanarama found that it managed only 12 trillion operations each second, while the D1 chip will manage 362 trillion, a giant increase in the span of only six years. Based on...
    Getty Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stands on the field prior to Super Bowl 51. The Dallas Cowboys are looking to add another quarterback, and one longtime star remains unsigned: Cam Newton. The former Panthers quarterback is far from the form he displayed during his days as a three-time Pro Bowler but could offer Dallas a temporary solution as Dak Prescott recovers. Bleacher Report’s Tyler Conway labeled Newton among the top replacement candidates for the Cowboys but also expressed skepticism about the star quarterback. “As far as Newton goes, he looked like a shell of himself after rejoining the Carolina Panthers midway through last season,” Conway wrote on September 12, 2022. “His name value is far higher than his on-field production at this point, and we’re four full years removed from him being an adequate passer in the pocket. “The other quarterbacks available on the free-agent market are equally uninspiring, though, and Newton at least brings a dynamic with his legs. Regardless, the Cowboys’ offense is looking at a major downgrade at quarterback in the hours following...
    First lady Jill Biden indicated Tuesday that she and President Joe Biden have not formally held a family discussion about him seeking a second term in the White House but thinks he should run anyway.

    President Joe Biden is bracing himself for tough election outcomes in November. During a Democratic National Committee reception in Boston on Monday, Biden said it will be a “difficult two years” if Democrats lose Congress after the midterm elections. “If we lose the House and we lose the Senate, it’s going to be a really difficult two years,” Biden reportedly told a crowd of about 30 donors and guests in attendance.

    The Walt Disney Company's CEO, Bob Chapek, says he believes his staffers saw his "resiliency and consistency" as the company sustained attacks after entering the debate over Florida's Parental Rights in Education bill this past spring. "I think our staff saw how I stood firm during the ultimate barrage of attacks from certain political constituencies and, frankly, I think it was much stronger and much longer and much harder than they ever could have imagined and we stood our ground," he said in a Monday interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

However, he said sometimes those needs are not consistent across...
    Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX) slammed his Republican challenger in the midterm elections, claiming out-of-state GOP donors and organizations are pouring money into her campaign as a way to “steal” the election. Gonzalez, who is running for reelection for the House in Texas, urged Democratic voters to cast their ballots in November, warning the Republican Party was seeking to steal the blue district in the GOP stronghold of Texas. His comments specifically targeted Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX), who won a special election on June 14 to finish Rep. Filemon Vela's (D-TX) term representing Texas’s 34th Congressional District. “There's millions and millions of dollars from outside our region and outside our state that are coming here to try to steal our elections and take away your value and take away the process that we rely on, which is elections,” Gonzalez said during a “Vote Blue” event alongside Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). “They stole that last election. They spent $3 million to our $250,000, they campaigned for two years, and they still only won by less than 1%.” ‘VOICE TO...
    Vice President Kamala Harris rejected suggestions that prosecutors should take Donald Trump’s status as a former president into consideration if he is found guilty of criminal charges, arguing the country would “demand justice.” As Trump faces several investigations that could result in criminal charges, his status as a former president and potential 2024 candidate has raised questions as to what kind of punishments should be levied against him. However, in an exclusive interview with NBC’s Meet the Press, Harris shot down the suggestion that it would be “too divisive” to prosecute Trump. “I think that our country is a country that has gone through different periods of time where the unthinkable has happened and where there has been a call for justice and justice has been served,” Harris told Chuck Todd in an interview that is set to air on Sunday.
