Speaking at the White House on Thursday night, Biden acknowledged the stiff political headwinds as he sought to drive up pressure on Congress to pass stricter gun limits after such efforts failed following past attacks.
    WASHINGTON (AP) — “Enough, enough,” President Joe Biden exclaimed over and over as he delivered an impassioned address to the nation imploring Congress to take action against gun violence after mass shootings he said had turned schools, supermarkets and other everyday places into “killing fields.” If legislators fail to act, he warned, voters should use their “outrage” to turn it into a central issue in November’s midterm elections.

He repeated calls to restore a ban on the sale of assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines — and said if Congress won’t embrace all of his proposals, it must at least find compromises like keeping firearms from those with mental health issues or raising the age to buy assault-style weapons from 18 to 21. “How much more carnage are we willing to accept?” Biden asked after last week’s...

    ROOKIE boss Michael Carrick has been working Knight and day to try to get the better of grand master Thomas Tuchel on Sunday. The caretaker Manchester United manager took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last weekend and immediately made a couple of smart first moves. 5Rookie boss Michael Carrick takes on grand master Thomas Tuchel in his first ever Premier League game in charge - Illustration by Lovatto 5Michael Carrick has a tough task on his hands outsmarting Thomas TuchelCredit: Getty At Villarreal on Tuesday, he put Cristiano Ronaldo out to the left of a three man attack – while dropping his Portuguese team-mate Bruno Fernandes to the bench. Meanwhile striker Anthony Martial was brought in down the middle for only his fourth start of the season. And the whole formation was much more compact in a bid to combat the defensive flaws which became a feature of Solskjaer’s last few games in charge. It was check-mate as far as former Arsenal boss Unai Emery was concerned as United ran out 2-0 winners to secure top spot in their group....
    When Gov. Gavin Newsom asked Californians to voluntarily conserve water last week as he stood in front of the retreating shoreline at Lopez Lake in San Luis Obispo County, some must have had déjà vu. It was only six years ago when former Gov. Jerry Brown stood in a field near Lake Tahoe that was bereft of normally plentiful snow and called for water restrictions amid the state’s punishing years-long drought. But by that point, Brown was done asking. In April 2015, he ordered cities and towns across the state to cut water use by 25%, the first mandatory statewide water restrictions in California history that browned lawns and shortened showers to the tune of more than 500 billion gallons saved that year. As Californians wonder when mandatory water restrictions might be coming, officials and experts including those who played roles in addressing the 2012-2016 drought say the pace and strategy of Newsom’s current response sufficiently incorporates insights gained from the past. The governor’s approach, however, has also frustrated some scientists who consider his actions too little too late...
    Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden wants to raise money for his ambitious economic agenda by ramping up enforcement at the Internal Revenue Service -- a way for the federal government to spend more money without raising taxes or adding to the deficit, making it a win-win in the eyes of lawmakers. The latest infrastructure proposal agreed to by the White House and a bipartisan group of senators suggests that an additional $100 billion could be collected by the IRS over the next 10 years by simply beefing up enforcement and making sure the government is collecting what taxpayers actually owe -- also known as closing the "tax gap."Biden also suggested earlier in the year that if he could boost the IRS's budget by $80 billion to pay for enforcement, he could increase revenue for the government by $700 billion over 10 years -- money he'd use to fund his American Families Plan, which would invest in child care, pre-K and colleges. But it's unclear exactly how much could be raised and how much it would cost to increase enforcement. Here's how...
    IT WAS easy against Ukraine. Too easy. Of course, it was a good performance by England and they made it easier for themselves but, as I was expecting, it was always going to be easy. 7It was all very simple for England as they crushed Ukraine 4-0 in RomeCredit: Getty 7Demark are a team united and inspired to win for their team-mate Christian EriksenCredit: Reuters They were always on the front foot and it could have been 5-0. They had no problems at all. They had no injuries and had no suspensions. Gareth Southgate wanted to play his best team regardless of the suspensions — he was proven right with his selection by not resting players. And now they have a semi-final. It is going to be more difficult, as Denmark are much better than Ukraine, but England are strong and playing well and are confident. They have a feeling it is coming home — but it’s going to be a big semi-final. Denmark are solid and they have found a different way to play without Christian Eriksen. With Eriksen...
    The Milwaukee Bucks overhauled their roster during the offseason to put more star power around two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. Their championship hopes now may depend on how well those other guys can perform without him. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Antetokounmpo is doubtful Thursday night for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals after an MRI showed he hyperextended his left knee in the Bucks’ 110-88 Game 4 loss to the Atlanta Hawks. "Giannis is going to do everything he can to be available," Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said Wednesday. "We’re going to put his health and safety first and together make good decisions." Antetokounmpo’s injury looked considerably more serious when he was clutching his knee in obvious pain Tuesday night. But as encouraging as the MRI results are for the Bucks’ long-term ambitions, the injury seriously complicates their hopes of winning this series and reaching the NBA Finals for the first time since 1974. The Bucks and Hawks are tied at two games apiece. "Any time you see your best player go down, it’s not great,"...
    Chrishell Stause Declares Shes "Off of Men" After Keo Motsepe Breakup Do you own any of these famous books worth a fortune? © Carlos Amoedo, Carlos Amoedo, Carlos Amoedo TPC Sawgrass 2020 The island green at TPC Sawgrass comes with a few ready-made adjectives. Famous. Is No. 17 the most notorious hole in American golf? If not, it’s safely inside the top five. Foreboding. Nobody wins the Players Championship without making his peace at the island green, and we’ve seen dreams shattered in the surrounding water. Feared. From the high stakes of a Sunday in March to the low stakes of a buddies trip with three smartphones filming, facing down the 137-yard tee shot is about as tremor-inducing as it gets. Everything we’ve just described, though, is more about image than reality. When you cut past the aura of the legendary hole, you’re left with a question: How hard is it, really, from a statistical point of view? We tackled this question from a few different directions, and in a few of them we tried to take water out...
    It’s been a tough 11 months for mothers. For about a millisecond after the onset of the pandemic, I hoped that remote work would cause fathers to finally see all of the myriad household tasks mothers do every day and begin doing their fair share. It didn’t happen. Instead of curing the fairness gap, we got the Great COVID Cop-out. Nearly 80% of mothers have been primarily responsible for doing the housework since March, while 66% are chiefly responsible for the child care among partnered parents. When you look at home schooling, parents’ contributions are even more skewed. Three-quarters of mothers reported spending more time on it; only one-third of dads do. (All numbers are from a new study by sociologists Allison Dunatchik, Kathleen Gerson, Jennifer Glass, Jerry A. Jacobs and Haley Stritzel in Gender & Society, forthcoming in April.) The fairness gap is deeply ingrained in our assumptions about family life, a fact that is particularly clear in the stories we tell. Three common themes show up in even the most sophisticated Hollywood productions. The first theme, Magic Disappearing...
    DEONTAY WILDER is a tougher test for Tyson Fury than Anthony Joshua, claims cutman Jorge Capetillo. The Gypsy King is likely to fight Wilder for a third time in Las Vegas in the first quarter of 2021, with a highly-anticipated unification bout with AJ then on the horizon. 3Fury dominated Wilder back in FebruaryCredit: Getty Images - Getty 3Cutman Capetillo helped Fury to victory over Otto Wallin last yearCredit: EPA While many fans are frustrated with the Bronze Bomber standing in the way of the all-Brit unifier, Capetillo believes it still presents the bigger challenge - despite Fury having dominated Wilder back in February. The cutman, who played a huge role in helping Fury, 32, to victory over Otto Wallin last year, believes that the American's KO power makes him more of a threat than Joshua, 30. Speaking to Marc Gatford via MyBettingSites.co.uk, he said: "I think Wilder is tougher because of his natural power. “His record shows this. If you have 42 knockouts, that’s something you don’t see every day. So with all due respect, we got to...
