    The Carnegie Mellon professor who wished the late Queen an 'excruciatingly painful' death, said her job at the prestigious university is safe despite her outrageous sentiments. 'From what I've been told, there is no plan to sanction or fire me, and my job is not in jeopardy. My university leadership showed very clearly they did not approve of my speech; however, they stand in firm support of my freedom of expression on my personal social media,' wrote Uju Anya, an applied-linguistics professor at the Pittsburgh college, in a Monday evening Twitter thread. 'I am not in battle with Carnegie Mellon University. As the letters of support from the students, faculty, staff, and others in my university community clearly show, I am wanted and I belong here.'  After learning of the dire state of the Queen's health last Thursday, Anya tweeted, 'I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.' The Queen's death at age 96 was announced later that same day.  Anya now says she does not believe her employer - Carnegie Mellon...
     The legal team former President Donald Trump has assembled to fend off an FBI obstruction investigation may have problems if its own, after the Justice Department released a sworn statement attesting to a 'diligent search' of Mar-a-Lago weeks before agents turned up a trove of classified material.

    Da Vina Teasley paid the rent regularly at her Richmond home for two decades before COVID-19 hit. The pandemic took away her job, sent her to the hospital for a week, and now threatens to leave her family homeless. Teasley applied for $40,000 in rental assistance in December for the first time, and was rejected by the state program for “inconsistent or unverifiable information.” Despite repeated calls to the state by Teasley and her attorney at the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, they haven’t been able figure out what more documentation the state needs. Teasley and her two school-aged children have been left in limbo as they appeal their denial, and may have to leave their long-time home. “I feel bad,” Teasley said, “staying in someone’s house I can’t afford.” The state emergency rental assistance program, designed to help struggling renters from becoming homeless during the global health crisis, closed to new applications April 1. Case workers have sped up processing of existing requests, state officials say. But the number of rejected applications has also started to mount — now totaling...

    In this article DIS NFLX AMZN From the glamor of celebrities strolling down the red carpet to the memorable speeches to the surprising wins, award shows have attracted massive attention throughout the decades. That storyline proved true for the Oscars and Emmys through much of the late 1980s and 1990s. But that entertainment award-show zeitgeist isn't what it used to be. The Oscars saw an 81.2% drop from peak viewership in 1998 to 2021, according to Nielsen. As for the Emmys, they saw an 80.6% drop from its 1986 high to 2021. On top of a steady decline in ratings, the celeb-filled events have also been hit with controversies and protests that further jeopardize their futures as must-watch events. What's more, their viewership trends are much older than the 18- to 49-year-old demographic that advertisers covet. Nevertheless, the Oscars and Emmys still play a vital part in the film and television industry. A single nomination can bolster a film's box office numbers, a TV show's ratings, or generate a higher asking price for the nominee's next project....
    A long-time friend of the Chicago socialite slain by 'suitcase killer' Heather Mack asked that the killer's daughter be placed in witness protection to shield her from being used as a 'pawn' for profit.  Elliot Jacobson, who delivered the eulogy for the late Sheila von Wiese-Mack in 2014, said Estelle 'Stella' Schaefer, 6, needed to be put in a proper home in the US and protected from the infamy of her mother's crimes.  'Stella really needs to be extricated completely from the environment she has been living in since she was born and we need to have a sort of 'Stella Protection Program,' Jacobson told Fox News, referencing the fact the the child was born in an Indonesian prison.  Suitcase Killer Heather Mack leaves Indonesian prison on October 29 before being sent to US, where she was arrested upon landing on Wednesday 'Analogous to the witness protection program where Stella gets a new identity and is placed with a family of two parents, not a single parent, who have the resources and the skill and occupation to allow her to be...
    Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt status for the team’s Week 1 game against the Buffalo Bills is far from certain. The Pittsburgh Steeler are set to begin their all-important 2021 season, in what very well could be the final year Ben Roethlisberger starts under center for the team. With a Week 1 meeting against the Buffalo Bills on the horizon, it is uncertain if the Steelers will have linebacker T.J. Watt on the field. According ESPN’s Brooke Pryor, Watt was only on the field for individual drills and worked on the side during team periods during Monday’s practice. That is the same thing Watt did throughout Steelers training camp. TJ Watts practice participation today was no different than training camp, Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten confirms. Watt was at every training camp practice, but worked only in individuals and was off to the side doing his own work during team periods. — Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) September 6, 2021 Steelers: T.J.

Just as news broke Friday morning that Mike Richards, who had been named Alex Trebek’s successor as host of Jeopardy!, was stepping down after offensive comments he’d made over the years and stories about inappropriate workplace behavior became public, Aaron Rodgers was giving an interview to Adam Schein on SiriusXM. Schein asked Rodgers whether he would’ve taken the job as Jeopardy! host if it had been offered to him. Rodgers, has waxed poetic about his experience guest-hosting for two weeks before answering, made it crystal clear he wants the gig even as he enters his 17th NFL season. Who knows where Jeopardy! will go after the Richards’s debacle, and who knows whether Rodgers will actively pursue the gig, but it’s hard to believe...
    Jensen Huang, president and CEO of Nvidia, speaks during the Computex Show in Taipei on May 30, 2017.SAM YEH | AFP | Getty Images LONDON — Nvidia's $40 billion bid to buy U.K.-based chip designer Arm from Japan's SoftBank has started to look increasingly uncertain in recent weeks. The deal, one of the biggest semiconductor takeovers ever seen, was announced last September to much fanfare, although competition regulators around the world soon announced plans to investigate the acquisition. Probes were launched in the U.S., the U.K., China and Europe after companies like Qualcomm, Microsoft, Google and Huawei complained that the deal was bad for the semiconductor industry. The U.K. investigation, being led by the Competition and Markets Authority, is also taking national security concerns into account. The CMA submitted its initial report to U.K. Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden on July 20. The assessment contains worrying implications for national security and the U.K. is currently inclined to reject the takeover, according to a report from Bloomberg on Tuesday, citing an unnamed source familiar with the matter.

    Mets’ Syndergaard has no structural damage in elbow, but his season may be in jeopardy Andres Chavez May 27, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Mets can’t seem to get any injury-related good news this week. At least ace Jacob deGrom returned this week and reported no setbacks following a win against the Colorado Rockies, because everybody else on the roster seems to be falling apart. After revealing that Michael Conforto and Jeff McNeil’s hamstring strains, plus Carlos Carrasco’s hamstring tear, will keep them all sidelined until at least late June, the Mets updated pitcher Noah Syndergaard’s status after he left his rehab start this week in Low-A St. Lucie after just one inning. Syndergaard reported discomfort in his right elbow, which was surgically repaired last year (Tommy John reconstruction).

    Fox sportscaster Joe Buck will try his hand as guest host for “Jeopardy!”, according to a report by The New York Post.

    The New York State Court of Appeals has rejected the Manhattan District Attorney's bid to bring criminal charges against Paul Manafort after he was pardoned by then-President Donald Trump. The decision from Chief Judge Janet DiFiore came out discreetly last Thursday and proved to be the blow to D.A. Cyrus Vance's efforts to try Trump's former campaign chairman. The case had been dismissed by Manhattan Supreme Court after the judge sided with the defense's argument of double jeopardy and the subsequent appeals courts confirmed the ruling.   TRUMP ISSUES NEW WAVE OF 26 PARDONS, THREE COMMUTATIONS Manafort’s attorney Todd Blanche rejoiced over the final decision. "As the trial court held, and the Appellate Division affirmed, the People’s arguments 'fall far short' of triggering an exception to double jeopardy that would justify this prosecution," said Blanche, "We are pleased that the New York Court of Appeals saw no reason to give leave to the District Attorney to appeal the well-reasoned prior decision dismissing the indictment and the Appellate Division’s opinion affirming the same."  The Manhattan DA’s office declined to comment.   Vance indicted Manafort in March...
    New York state’s highest court ruled that the Manhattan district attorney’s office could not prosecute political operative Paul Manafort for mortgage fraud because of the state’s double jeopardy rule. Manafort, a previous campaign director for former President Donald Trump, was pardoned by Trump after being convicted of multiple federal crimes. During that period, Manafort was in the middle of serving a seven-and-a-half-year prison sentence after being convicted in a 2018 fraud trial. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance charged Manafort with mortgage fraud back in March 2019, anticipating the former president would pardon the Republican political operative, according to the New York Times. However, in October, the New York appeals court ruled that Vance’s action violated its double jeopardy rule. In a decision dated Feb. 4, the state’s top court upheld the lower-court ruling, barring Vance from prosecuting Manafort.

    Katie Couric’s candid thoughts on Donald Trump’s supporters could create a sticky situation for her upcoming Jeopardy! gig, a new report indicates. The former Today co-anchor said during an appearance on Bill Maher’s show that the former president and other prominent Republicans had been spreading so many lies to his supporters that they now need to be deprogrammed. As the New York Post’s Page Six noted, Couric did not hold back in her remarks, which pointed to misinformation about the alleged voter fraud that Trump claimed cost him the election. “But I also think some of them are believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie,” she said. “And the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump.” Though others have shared similar feelings, Couric could face an especially strong backlash given the audience for her new job. The report noted that she has been picked as one of the guest presenters for...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics and the 76ers are supposed to play each other for the first time this season on Wednesday night, but that matchup may have to wait. The 76ers are dealing with their own COVID-19 issues at the moment, which could potentially put that tilt in jeopardy. Philadelphia had only nine players available for Saturday’s loss to Memphis, and then had Sunday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder postponed because the team didn’t have the necessary eight players available to play. Two more players were sidelined due to contact tracing, after Memphis big man Jonas Valanciunas entered quarantine following Saturday’s game. The situation could clear up in time for Wednesday night’s tip at the Wells Fargo Center, but that matchup could just as easily become the latest game to be postponed this season due to COVID-19. It’s unclear when any of Philadelphia’s players will be cleared to return, so Wednesday’s game against Boston is now clouded with uncertainty. Though Sunday was Philadelphia’s first game of the season to be postponed, the team has dealt with COVID issues...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Hundreds of jobs in the city of Pittsburgh could be in jeopardy. Millions of dollars in federal funding is needed. The jobs that could be impacted include 200 police officers. According to the Trib, that was part of a three-hour-long hearing that went over next year’s proposed public safety budget. The paper says the city needs at least 26 million dollars by July 1st to avoid making cuts that include 600 city employees. In those cuts, besides the 200 police officers, there’s more than 150 firefighters and more than 60 paramedics. And finances aren’t the only thing that has put a strain on the city, according to the Trib, public safety workers responded to numerous pandemic emergencies while also dealing with more than 200 protests since May. That’s the information they received from the Public Safety Director. There’s concern that cutting that many police officers would lead to an increase in crime in the city and put people in danger. Council members will continue to speak with public safety leaders through December 14th. That’s...
    Kolten Wong may actually be leaving the Cardinals as a free agent this offseason. Kolten Wong was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the first round of the 2011 MLB Draft and has been up with the team since 2013.

    Legendary "Jeopardy!" champions Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer paid tribute to the show's host Alex Trebek on Sunday, shortly after the program announced the beloved figure had died following a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 80 years old. "Alex wasn't just the best ever at what he did. He was also a lovely and deeply decent man, and I'm grateful for every minute I got to spend with him," wrote Jennings on Twitter, along with a photo of the two of them. "Thinking today about his family and his Jeopardy! family—which, in a way, included millions of us." Jennings holds the titles of most consecutive games won and highest winnings on the show during regular season play, according to the show's website. In January, he emerged victorious in the "Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time" tournament — becoming the show's best player ever. Alex wasn’t just the best ever at what he did.

    The San Jose State football team is off to a 1-0 start after an outstanding defensive showing keyed a 17-6 victory over the Air Force Falcons on Saturday, but the Spartans could have trouble maintaining momentum. Their next game is scheduled to take place on Saturday against the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, but it’s unclear whether the Lobos will be permitted to host the Spartans. New Mexico’s season-opener scheduled for Saturday, October 24 was canceled last week due to the increasing prevalence of COVID-19 in Bernalillo County. “Due to the prevalence of the COVID-19 virus in Bernalillo County and in accordance with state guidelines, the University of New Mexico is unable to participate in the scheduled football game on Saturday, Oct. 24, at Colorado State University,” the Mountain West Conference said in a statement on Tuesday, October 20. “Therefore, the Mountain West is canceling the game and declaring it a no contest. There is no plan to reschedule the game.” Related Articles Arizona season preview: Game predictions, program trajectory, coach and quarterback assessment...
    DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado has just recorded its highest single-day COVID-19 caseload since the spring. That, combined with the 290 hospitalizations due to coronavirus, has Gov. Jared Polis very worried. (credit: CBS) “We need to get this under control now,” Polis said in a news conference on Tuesday afternoon. The coronavirus three-day positivity rate is also now at above 5%. That’s a rate the World Health Organization classifies as an active outbreak and when additional concerns should be launched around public safety regarding community transmission. “We’ve got to get these numbers down. If this trend continues our hospital capacity will be in jeopardy,” the governor said. Polis said it’s imperative for Colordans to wear masks in public places, practice social distancing, wash hands regularly with soap and reduce the number of social interactions. The governor said the COVID pandemic is posing a major risk the state’s economy and with the holiday season coming soon, if the numbers continue the way they have been it could spell disaster. “We have to do better if we want our economy to grow. Because...
    According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio, by way of Sportskeeda, WWE superstar Nikki Cross could be set to miss tonight’s Clash of Champions pay-per-view. The superstar didn’t appear on this week’s Friday Night SmackDown, and her status is currently unknown. “There’s certainly rumors about Nikki Cross who was not on television yesterday, on Friday. If she’s there, she’s there and if she’s not there then she’s not there. I asked this morning if she was going to be there and nobody got back to me which, you know, that’s your answer, nobody got back to me.” As the report highlighted, this week has seen an outbreak in more positive COVID-19 cases from within WWE’s Performance Center. As of this writing, some NXT performers and personnel have been affected, though the company hasn’t released a list of names of all the positive cases. All of the people in question have been placed into a 14-day quarantine period, however, and they’ll be re-evaluated at a later date. The timing of Cross’ absence suggests that she could be taking time...
    The US Congress has waded into the ongoing row over the Elgin Marbles and called for their return to Greece. In a letter to the Prime Minister, eighteen members of the House of Representatives urged Britain to open talks 'in earnest' over the sculptures in the British Museum. They said said: 'The Marbles have been the source of controversy among western allies for many decades. Greece has long wanted these Parthenon Marbles back. 'Today we write to you as members of the congressional caucus on Hellenic Issues to urge your government to negotiate with the Greek government in earnest on the return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece.' The 7th Earl of Elgin, Thomas Bruce, removed the Parthenon Marble pieces from the Acropolis in Athens while serving as the British ambassador to the Ottoman Empire from 1799 to 1803 The group of congressmen contained both Republicans and Democrats and included the chair of the foreign affairs subcommittee covering Europe and the chairs of the oversight and rules committees. They want to see the sculptures returned by 2021 - the...
    The Sunday Night Football game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks could be in jeopardy due to the fast-spreading wildfires in the Pacific Northwest. As NJ.com reported, the NFL has been monitoring the spread of wildfires along the West Coast to determine what impact it could have on the contest scheduled to be played on Sunday night at CenturyLink Stadium in Seattle. As the report noted, the fires already forced Major League Baseball to shift a three-game series between the Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres south to San Diego due to the effect of the wildfires. Another series scheduled for Seattle had to move to San Francisco, the report noted. “Players were complaining about the smoke on Monday in Seattle during a doubleheader between the Mariners and Oakland A’s, even with the roof closed at T-Mobile Park,” the report said, adding that smoke from the fires has traveled considerable distances, even affecting air quality and weather on the East Coast and beyond. Satellite images showed that some smoke had traveled close to 5,000 miles to England and...

    The 2019-20 NBA season could be in jeopardy following Wednesday’s strike. On Wednesday, the Milwaukee Bucks were the first domino to fall in a solidarity strike among NBA players in protest of the Jacob Blake shooting over the weekend. The Orlando Magic left the court as well before the Bucks’ Game 5 matchup, and not long after, it was reported the Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers would all be sitting out of their Game matchups as well.

    PHILADELPHIA — Wilson Ramos’ foothold on a starting job with the Mets could be slipping. A night after the veteran catcher was slow in applying the tag at home plate in allowing the Phillies to score the winning run, Ramos was on the bench Saturday because manager Luis Rojas wanted to pair starting pitcher Steven Matz with Tomas Nido. But beyond the tactical reason of starting Nido, the decline in Ramos’ bat — he was signed mostly because of his offensive ability — has caught team officials’ attention. Ramos entered play with a .197/.269/.279 slash line with one homer and four RBIs as the weakest lineup link. Ramos was presented with a breakdown of his ills during a meeting Saturday with Rojas and members of the coaching staff. “His chase rate is a little higher, his first-pitch swinging is a little higher, so those are two things going against him,” Rojas said. “He hasn’t been necessarily getting a strike right away and other pitchers when they see this they are going to start expanding and know that you are going...
    Washington (CNN)As Belarus is roiled by a government crackdown on peaceful demonstrators protesting an election condemned by the international community, a casualty of the unrest may be a nascent diplomatic push by the Trump administration to improve ties with Minsk as part of an effort to counter Russia's one-time dominant position there.The Trump administration had made a major effort to normalized relations with the former Soviet republic, in part as an effort to prevent Belarus from falling completely into Moscow's orbit.However, with the US joining European allies in disputing the outcome of the Belarusian presidential election and continuing protests and crackdowns by the regime of "Europe's last dictator" -- Alexander Lukashenko -- experts told CNN the path of diplomatic rapprochement with Minsk is unclear. Belarus opposition candidate flees to Lithuania amid crackdown on election protestsOn Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a statement expressing concern about the election, saying it "was not free and fair.""We urge the Belarusian government to respect the rights of all Belarusians to participate in peaceful assembly, refrain from use of force, and release those...
    More than two dozen lifeguards in New Jersey test positive for COVID-19 Check your couch cushions: One Chick-fil-A offers free food voucher if you exchange coins Fears rising MLB season could be in jeopardy after just one weekend The 2020 MLB season is less than a week old, and already there are growing fears that it may already be at risk of being done. © Mary Holt-USA TODAY Sports Is the 2020 MLB season already in jeopardy? The Miami Marlins are currently dealing with a major COVID-19 outbreak, with at least 14 people and 12 players (roughly 40% of their active roster) having tested positive. The franchise played Sunday against the Philadelphia Phillies, despite knowing about four positive tests from their Friday testing. Again, we’re literally days into the 2020 MLB season. The league isn’t playing in a bubble, like MLS and the NBA. So it was inevitable that positive tests would impact teams. However, the incredible speed at which this outbreak on Miami’s roster took over has many wondering if MLB is already doomed to fall on its...
