    As practice started Friday morning and a capacity crowd was still filing in to Halas Hall, general manager Ryan Poles stood alongside coach Matt Eberflus watching the Chicago Bears offensive linemen go through individual drills. On the other side of the collection of big bodies, assistant general manager Ian Cunningham studied intently as line coach Chris Morgan put players through their paces. For nearly 10 minutes, the top three men in football operations were observing a group that has been under scrutiny all offseason. The line captured the attention of those in charge this summer. Sometime between the end of veteran minicamp in mid-June and the start of training camp last week, a determination was made that help was needed. It led to the signings of left tackle Riley Reiff, 33, and right guard/right tackle Michael Schofield, 31. Both have an abundance of starting experience, something you could only say about one player the team already had — left guard Cody Whitehair. Center Lucas Patrick, the one veteran signed during the March free-agency period projected to start, is sidelined following...
    “I looked at him and I told him I was sorry, and that I loved him. From there on out, it’s just a commitment,” Fraser told his father-in-law, according to WJW. “Let’s see what’s going to happen. Let’s do this the best we can.” "Now we’re headed to Highway 19. I see powerlines. I see cars, curves, trees, hills. I have no other option. This is the only and best option for us right now," Fraser explained. Fraser's father-in-law reacted, "He looked at me and said ‘Just do whatever you can. Do what you can do. I trust you.'" WAVY-TV reported that the pilot reacted to the stalled engine, "Trying to remain calm, he went through a checklist of steps needed to restart the engine in case of a failure. It started." Fraser told WINK-TV, "I kind of went into this mentality that I had when I was in the Marine Corps. So, it was just, I had to save Jeff, that’s my objective was to save our lives, and save the people on the ground and with as little...
    Wandrea "Shaye" Moss testifies before the January 6 committee. Jacquelyn Martin/AP Facts matter: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter. Support our nonprofit reporting. Subscribe to our print magazine.The January 6 committee heard live testimony today from Wandrea “Shaye” Moss, a Georgia election worker who became the target of a vicious harassment campaign fanned by Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, and right-wing media outlets in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential campaign.  “It’s turned my life upside down,” Moss said. “I no longer give out my business card. I don’t transfer calls. I don’t want anyone knowing my name…I don’t go to the grocery store at all. I haven’t been anywhere at all. I’ve gained about 60 pounds…I second-guess everything that I do. It’s affected my life in a major way, in every way. All because of lies, for me doing my job, the same thing I’ve been doing forever.” In December 2020, Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani began to elevate a misleadingly cropped video of Moss and her mother, Ruby Freeman, claiming that they were pulling “suitcases”...
    THERE’S a moment in some movies, you’ll all know the scene, when a character steps up and issues a rallying cry to their friends, community or sports team. With each stirring word the music rises, as does the speaker’s confidence, and you all know as an audience that the rest of the movie will see those people carried to some kind of victory on the wave and strength of that speech. 2I know some parents are concerned about sending their children back to school.but I am convinced that the classroom is the best place for children to be, says Dame Rachel De Souza You can often argue with friends after the credits roll whether it was all a bit Hollywood-cheesy but we all know a good rallying cry works in real life, especially if it is genuinely heartfelt and simple to understand. It should grasp the truth of a moment and shout it to the rooftops in a way that you know will be not just heard but completely understood. Well, in real life right now that moment is the...
    SOME of South Lake Tahoe's 20,000 residents have ignored mandatory evacuation orders as a huge and devastating two-week-old fire creeps closer to city limits. The Caldor Fire, which began on August 14, south of Pollock Pines in El Dorado County, prompted mass evacuations in the northern California city earlier this week and has so far burned more than 204,000 acres. 14The scale of the Caldor Fire is seen above 14A handful of residents have ignored evacuation ordersCredit: AP 14The Caldor fire has been burning for the last two weeksCredit: AFP 14The fire is only 20 percent contained as of WednesdayCredit: AFP Over 3,500 firefighters have been deployed to combat the blaze, which is just 20 percent contained as of Wednesday morning.

Five people have already been hurt by the flames and 728 structures have been completely destroyed, according to CalFire. 'NOWHERE TO GO' Fire officials issued mandatory evacuations in El Dorado and Alpine counties on...
    According to Seymus Ombudsman’s head of the Bureau of Human Rights, Vittatas Valentinevius, state border guards have modeled a possible scenario for Belarus to “push” migrants into Lithuania through one or more border units. He made this public on the social network, but avoided widespread comments. Unofficial data from the Tv3.lt portal confirms that a plan is being devised on how Lithuania will behave if a large number of immigrants attempt to enter the border, especially if others try to intimidate asylum seekers. Dogs can be bullied, shot in the air or similar acts. Rogas Bukinskos, communications chief of the State Border Security Service, said he could not comment on the Belarusian side’s actions. “Our border guards and all the agencies that assist them work with precision, discipline and efficient maturity,” he said. Although public officials are not in a position to comment publicly on the situation, it is unofficially acknowledged that the situation is serious. Belarusian authorities will not allow reverse immigrants to cross the border into the depths of the country, so their numbers are increasing along the...
    The WHO has warned there is a 'strong likelihood' of dangerous Covid variants spreading around the world as they declared the pandemic 'nowhere near finished. An emergency committee of the global health body said the mutant strains will make it even harder for the pandemic to come to an end. In a statement, the committee said: 'Despite national, regional, and global efforts, the pandemic is nowhere near finished. The World Health Organisation 's emergency committee has warned that new concerning variants of Covid-19 were expected to spread around the world. Pictured: a women is tested for the virus in Bangkok 'The pandemic continues to evolve with four variants of concern dominating global epidemiology.  'The Committee recognised the strong likelihood for the emergence and global spread of new and possibly more dangerous variants of concern that may be even more challenging to control.' Meanwhile, the head of the WHO said today that investigations into the origins of the pandemic in China were hampered by the lack of raw data on the first days of spread there and urged the country to...
    Angelina Jolie yesterday visited refugees in Burkina Faso to highlight the problems faced by people who have to flee their homes.  The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Special Envoy, 46, donned a headscarf as she spoke in the West African nation to mark World Refugee Day.  Highlighting how the number of displaced people in the world has doubled in the past year, she said: 'There is nowhere I would rather be today than here, with refugees, the people I admire most in the world.'

    For the discerning business traveller looking for somewhere to overnight, the St Cyrus Village Inn in Aberdeenshire comes highly recommended by its guests.  Situated just a stone’s throw from the chilly shores of the North Sea, the three-star hotel’s capacious ensuite rooms are priced at a very reasonable £40 a night for single occupancy. Most importantly of all, the hotel is open to essential workers who, despite the lockdown, find it necessary to travel for work. The mystery is, then, why Peter Phillips didn’t think to book a room there during his 920-mile round trip to Scotland last week. Instead, Princess Anne’s son, 15th in line to the throne, stayed the night a minute’s walk away at the home of his sister’s old school chum, elegant blonde mother-of-two Lindsay Wallace. In doing so, it’s fair to say, he put a few local noses out of joint. Disgruntled neighbours who spotted Phillips’s swanky black Range Rover parked on the driveway of Mrs Wallace’s £475,000 home summoned the police believing that the Queen’s grandson had broken Scotland’s strict Covid-19 lockdown laws. Not...
    The villains from 80s movies who we love to hate Things you should (and shouldnt) buy in February Shaq Barrett: There’s nowhere else I’d rather be Buccaneers linebacker Shaq Barrett is now a Super Bowl champion. © Getty Images He’s also a pending free agent. Barrett led the league with 19.5 sacks in 2019. While he had only 8.0 during the 2020 regular season, he looked like a sack champion in Sunday’s 31-9 win over Kansas City. He was consistently in the backfield to pressure Patrick Mahomes, finishing with a sack and four quarterback hits. But he played the 2020 season under the franchise tag, which means he’s slated to hit the open market in March. Video: Tua Tagovailoa on the challenge of playing the Chiefs (Yahoo! Sports) Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad In the euphoric afterglow of Super Bowl LV, Barrett may have undercut a bit of his agent’s leverage by clearly stating his wish to stay with Tampa Bay. “I know [there] ain’t no other place I’d rather be. So I’m pretty...
    London (CNN Business)If you're asking why US stocks just hit an all-time high in the middle of a pandemic that's triggered the sharpest recession in history, you aren't alone.What's happening: The S&P 500, the broadest measure of the US stock market, notched a new closing record on Tuesday, erasing all its losses since February. The index has rallied more than 50% from its low point on March 23."It's hard to believe, but the 2020 bear market is officially over," Solita Marcelli, Americas CIO at UBS Global Wealth Management, wrote in a note to clients. The bear market officially lasted just over one month, making it the shortest ever, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. So what gives? Ultimately, investors have found it hard to bet against the unprecedented flood of stimulus spending unleashed by governments and central banks. And with interest rates at historic lows, those chasing returns are left with few alternatives to stocks. The tech giants still raking in cash have appeared especially attractive."Investors have little choice but to search for yield, and that means going for riskier...
    TIM SHERWOOD believes Arsenal's £72million signing of Nicolas Pepe is a waste of money due to the quality of academy graduate Bukayo Saka. The former Tottenham boss has waxed lyrical over the Gunners teenager who netted his first Premier League goal on Saturday during the 2-0 win against Wolves. 1Tim Sherwood has stated Arsenal shouldn't have signed Nicolas Pepe as they already had Bukayo Saka Saka, 18, penned a new deal at the Emirates last week after a fantastic season in which he has appeared in 34 games and scored four goals. ARSENAL NEWS LIVE: Follow for the latest Gunners news His versatility has seen him feature in both wing positions as well as at left-back, with fans labelling him as the future of the club.

    THIRTEEN years ago Sir Alex Ferguson unleashed a Red Arrows strikeforce which fired Manchester United to glory in England and Europe. The 2007-08 season, when Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez racked up a staggering 79 goals between them, and tortured defences from Lisbon to Liverpool. 2 Man Utd were given an exciting glimpse into their future against Sheff Utd 2 Man Utd fans can dream of a new front-three like Rooney, Ronaldo and Tevez in 2007-08Credit: News Group Newspapers It was an attacking trio to rival any in Fergie’s 26-year reign, even his 1999 treble winners, and certainly the current crop are footballing light years away as yet. But when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer teamed up Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood against Sheffield United, there was a mouthwatering glimpse into the future. And with Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba providing the ammunition – plus a few well aimed shots of their own – it is a future which is suddenly looking decidedly rosy again. There hasn’t been a great deal for United fans to get worked up...
