While I am by no means a five-star chef, I do enjoy cooking quite a bit when given the time. That being said, for all of the more complex items I want to cook, sometimes I lack the actual tools needed to make them; especially if it falls out of the normal cookware pieces you start any kitchen with. This is especially frustrating on the rare occasions when I actually feel that urge to make something that takes more than three steps to prepare and am roadblocked by my lack of kitchen equipment. At the same time, while much of the cookware and appliances I already own are solid beginner staples, many of them now have newer, better alternatives that have been created in the last few years. The best kitchen gadgets have the power to completely revolutionize how you spend your time cooking and cleaning up. So, if you want to get a taste of the future or simply make your day-to-day...
    The world's third-largest movie theatre chain Cineworld Group plc, which owns Regal Cinemas and 505 US-based theatres, is preparing to file for bankruptcy. The London-based company cites poor attendance since reopening theatres in 2021, which did not meet company expectations, and not enough films being produced as reasons for its loss of income. Cineworld Group had a net debt of $5 billion at the end of 2021, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter.  With strong performances from movies to start 2022 like 'Top Gun: Maverick,' momentum is expected to stall toward the end the year. This follows with a predicted drop in admission 'due to a limited film slate that is anticipated to continue until November 2022 and (is) expected to negatively impact trading and the group's liquidity in the near term,' the company said. The chain almost filed bankruptcy in 2020 before receiving help from creditors after the pandemic hit the company hard.  Cineworld Group plc, owners of Regal Cinemas, is preparing to file for chapter 11 bankruptcy in the US after piling a debt upward of...
    Prince Charles was accused of a 'serious lack of judgment' yesterday after it emerged his charity accepted £1million from the family of Osama bin Laden. It received the donation after Charles had a private meeting with the terrorist's half-brother Bakr bin Laden in 2013 – two years after the Al Qaeda leader was killed by US special forces. The Charity Commission is likely to face calls to investigate in light of the revelation.  Royal sources denied reports that Charles, 73, had 'brokered' the donation, or that he agreed to it in the face of opposition from his advisers. Clarence House said the trustees of the Prince of Wales's Charitable Fund (PWCF) had agreed to accept the donation without the prince's involvement, and that they carried out 'thorough due diligence'. Prince Charles was accused of a 'serious lack of judgment' yesterday after it emerged his charity accepted £1million from the family of Osama bin Laden But the latest revelation comes only weeks after it emerged the PWCF accepted more than £2.5million in cash donations, said to be stuffed in bags and suitcases,...
    The Governor of Cardin gave an update on the department’s hydrological situation. An ordinance has been issued to use water in the card. Despite rains at the end of June, record temperatures in May and high temperatures in June leave their mark on the department’s water resources. Particularly marked tensions are observed in the Vidourle and Cèze downstream areas. The Gordon downstream and Ches upstream sectors also show significant deficits, and deviations from the mean levels of the Visrenque and Costieres aquifers continue to widen. Light rain is expected Due to the lack of rainfall recorded during the spring, the Sénéchas dam is only partially filled. Therefore, Cèze’s low water flow support is slightly reduced, allowing the river to stagnate during the summer. According to Météo-France forecasts for the next few days, temperatures should be above normal for the season, and little precipitation is expected. Different parts of the card according to their classification level. Khartoum Province – DR A new classification for zones So the chief of the card decided Careful maintenance...
    Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman has once again expressed her regret over the representation of Chandler Bing's transgender parent on the show. The writer, 65, who created the long-running American sitcom with David Crane, said it was a 'mistake' to use male pronouns and the word 'father' to refer to the transgender woman. Chandler's parent, also known by her stage name Helena Handbasket, was played by Kathleen Turner, who has since admitted she would not take on the role today. 'It was a mistake': Marta Kauffman has expressed her regret over the representation of Chandler Bing's transgender parent (right, with Chandler and Nora Tyler Bing) in Friends Addressing the controversy around Chandler's trans parent being referred to by a male name throughout the show, Marta admitted it was a 'mistake'. In an interview with The Conversation, to air on BBC World Service on July 11, she said: 'We kept referring to her [Chandler's transgender parent] as "Chandler's father", even though Chandler's father was trans. 'Pronouns were not yet something that I understood so we didn't refer to that character as "she", that was a...
    Some experts are warning that gaps in testing and vaccine coverage for monkeypox will leave the United States vulnerable to losing control of its tropical virus outbreak. Public health leaders from the National Coalition of STD Directors (NCSD) and George Washington University (GW) warn that a fractured and lacking response to the outbreak so far can have severe consequences. Previous experts have warned that the virus has likely been spreading undetected in the U.S. for some time, and fear it could become endemic in the nation is not curbed soon.  As if Friday - the most recently available data - the U.S. has logged 460 cases across 31 states and the District of Columbia. Iowa is believed to have recorded its first case over the weekend as well, though Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) figures have not yet reflected it.

    Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman has once again apologized for the lack of black leads on the legendary New York-based sitcom.  In response to the lack of diversity on the show, Kauffman has pledged $4 million to her alma mater, the Boston area's Brandeis University, to create an endowed professorship in the university's African and African American studies department.  Kauffman, 65, who co-created the NBC sitcom with David Crane, said she felt 'embarrassed' that Friends featured a predominantly white cast.  'I've learned a lot in the last 20 years,' Kauffman told the LA Times. 'Admitting and accepting guilt is not easy. It's painful looking at yourself in the mirror. 'I'm embarrassed that I didn't know better 25 years ago.' While Friends is arguably one of the most successful sitcoms of all time, running for 10 seasons between 1994 and 2004, the show's lack of diversity was always something it was criticized for.

    “I’ve been working really hard to become an ally, an anti-racist," she added. "And this seemed to me to be a way that I could participate in the conversation from a white woman’s perspective.” One of the show's stars, David Schwimmer, responded to criticism about diversity in 2020. “I don't care," said Schwimmer to the Guardian at the time. "The truth is also that show was groundbreaking in its time for the way in which it handled so casually sex, protected sex, gay marriage and relationships. You have to look at it from the point of view of what the show was trying to do at the time." He also said that he pushed for his character, Ross, to date non-white characters on the show, and he did.

    Singer Halsey had brash words for concertgoers at her Phoenix, Arizona show when she delivered an impassioned speech about abortion rights. During the Saturday concert, in between songs that were written about abortion, Halsey took the microphone and spoke directly to the crowd. “The truth is that my heart breaks looking out into this audience, because I see so many people, so many people who deserve to have incredible lives, who deserve the right to the healthcare that they need. Who deserve the right to choose themselves in a situation where there is a choice,” she said. “I’m looking at your faces right now. And looking at you. I am remembering your faces. I am remembering what you look like, what you are wearing. And I know that the reality. Is that some of the people I am looking at right now are going to need an abortion one day. Whether it’s a life threaten situation, or it’s not, you deserve it,” the singer added. “Here in Arizona, you guys got to promise me that you’re...
    President Joe Biden and his allies are frustrated by a 'lack of respect' toward him from Democrats and the media, a New York Times report suggests President Joe Biden and his top aides are 'irritated' by the cold reception his expected 2024 re-election bid has received from fellow Democrats and the media, a new report suggests on Monday. Biden, who would be 81 years old when he ran for office a second time, has faced a mountain of discussions about potential primary challengers compared to other first-term president this early in office. Lawmakers within the president's own party have been hesitant to get behind him at this point. Earlier this month, firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to say she would back a Biden 2024 campaign during an interview on CNN. 'Should he run again, I think that I - you know, I think it's - it's, we'll take a look at it,' the New York Democrat said. 'But, right now, we need to focus on winning a majority, instead of a presidential election.' West Virginia conservative Democratic Senator Joe Manchin...
    Babies born during the COVID-19 pandemic are 'falling behind' on key milestones including talking and crawling because of a lack of social interaction, early learning staff and scientists have warned. Dominique Spencer, who directs the Jubilee JumpStart early learning center in Washington D.C., revealed many children coming through her doors now less advanced socially than those from before the pandemic began. Studies have also revealed children born after March 2020 are less likely to be able to vocalize than their peers were at this age, and are yet to develop social skills such as sharing and waiting their turn — leading to more fights. Scientists including Dr Dana Suskind, a surgeon at Chicago University, suggest a lack of social contact with family and relatives due to restrictions is behind the shift. The long-term impact of the pandemic on children is not yet clear, but experts have warned keeping children away from their peers for so long with lockdowns is bound to have harmed their development. Children born during the Covid pandemic are behind on key developmental steps compared to their...
    America may already have as many as 300 cases of monkeypox — more than nine times the official tally of 31 — but has missed hundreds due to a lack of testing, an expert warned Monday. Dr Boghuma Titanji, an infectious diseases expert at Emory University in Georgia,  claimed the U.S. likely already has the same number of infections as the UK — which is currently the world's monkeypox hotspot. But she said the arduous process of checking swabs — which must be sent to one of 74 local labs and then the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for confirmation — was leading to too few being done and many being missed. Other experts say infections may not be detected because cases can be mild and clear up on their own, leading to patients not coming forward, or get misdiagnosed as a sexually transmitted disease like syphilis. America's monkeypox cases are mostly among gay and bisexual men and linked to international travel — particularly to Europe, which has spotted about 900 of the 1,000 global cases in 21 countries....
    Criminal tampering charges against Denver Broncos receiver Jerry Jeudy have been dropped due to a lack of evidence after an altercation between the 23-year-old NFL star and the mother of his new-born child. An Arapahoe County (Colorado) District Attorney's Office spokesperson told DailyMail.com that officials have formally dismissed all charges against Jeudy, who was accused of withholding a wallet and child's car seat from the woman during a May 12 dispute. The woman, who was in a relationship with Jeudy, reported to police at the time that she wanted to leave his residence, but was prevented from doing so because her belongings were locked in a vehicle. Jeudy was arrested and booked on second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer.  County Sheriff Tyler Brown previously said there was 'was no physical contact' during the dispute, but the domestic violence enhancer was included in the charge because the woman accused him of withholding her property in order to coerce her. 'After reviewing the evidence, I always believed that no crime had been committed and all charges would be dismissed,' Jeudy's...
    Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as 'winter blues' or 'winter depression', is thought to affect as many as a third of British adults, but for some the arrival of brighter weather can come with its own problems.  Regarded as a major depressive disorder (MDD) with seasonal patterns, SAD is linked to seasonal change and is not just a winter condition that leaves them anxious, low on energy and overwhelmed.  And although it is associated with lack of light and gray, gloomy skies, some people suffer with SAD from increased sunshine and warmer temperatures, as well as social pressures that the warmer season brings.  Here, experts tell Femail what can trigger summertime sadness and how to cope if you're affected.   Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is thought to affect 29 per cent British adults.

    “Every person should be careful with water and not waste water unnecessarily”, Violaine Bault, a hydrologist at the Bureau of Geology and Mining Research (BRGM), said on Tuesday, May 10, there were 15 departments in France raising awareness about groundwater availability or drought alert. Situation “Very different” Violin Bald refers to more or less recharged layers and stages, depending on the region “Anxiety” Especially in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. Even if the heavy rain comes soon, it will be “already too late” to have its effect “Groundwater level”The hydrologist adds. >> Drought: Direct follow franceinfo: Are there regional differences in water availability? Violin Bolt: Yes, there are regional differences. First, during the period when groundwater is generally recharging, recharging was very low this winter. So now we have most of the layers below equilibrium. The situation is very different. In the southwest it is very satisfactory, especially in Occitania where the water levels have been recharged as it has been raining for the past two months. Further north, we have water bodies that are more dormant and less capable of operating in...
    The article, “Housing advocates want lawmakers to restart and replenish Minnesota’s halted rental assistance program. That’s gonna be a tough sell” called attention to the need to fund programs that address the homelessness crisis here in Minnesota. Sen. Rich Draheim (R-Madison Lake) questioned the effectiveness of existing housing stability programs saying, “What are we doing with the hundreds of millions in housing stability programs that we already have? That means our existing programs are failing. We need to unpack those. Why aren’t the existing programs working?” The problem isn’t that programs are failing; it’s that they are underfunded and don’t meet the scale of the challenges that exist in Minnesota. The Emergency Services Program (ESP), which is the best and most flexible source of funding to provide services to people experiencing homelessness, is a prime example of this gross underfunding. Since its creation in 1997, the Emergency Services Program has only received moderate increases and never at the scale to meet the need. In 2014, $844,000 per year was allocated to address homelessness for the entire state. Through our advocacy...
    (CNN)For months now, one thing has been pretty clear: Democrats are headed for an absolutely brutal midterm election unless something BIG changes and QUICKLY. But this week felt like the moment when Democrats -- from President Joe Biden on down -- realized just how bad things look out there.Consider these two headlines, which ran on CNN on Thursday and Friday, respectively: Read More1. "After Build Back Better's collapse, Democrats still struggling with how to message the midterms" 2. "A frustrated Joe Biden will go on the attack against Republicans in the midterms -- and into 2024" The tale told by those two stories is of a Democratic Party that lacks the votes to revive its signature piece of legislation (Build Back Better) and lacks the initiative or will -- at least at present -- to coalesce around an agreed-upon message that they can sell to the American public.That lack of direction couldn't come at a worse time for Democrats. The news this week that the gross domestic product fell at an annualized rate of 1.4% between January and March --...
    Julia Roberts was once the queen of the romantic comedy, though she hasn't made one in more than 20 years... until her new project Ticket to Paradise. The 54-year-old actress was promoting her new Starz TV series Gaslit, which debuts Sunday, April 24, in a new interview with The New York Times. She seemed quite surprised that it had been so long since she starred in a romantic comedy, before her Ticket to Paradise movie due out in October, starring alongside her old friend George Clooney, but revealed there's a very good reason why it's been so long: 'I consider myself a homemaker.'

    IAN WRIGHT has criticised Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah for failing to seize the opportunity to become the club's main striker. Since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's departure in January, Arsenal have been left with just two out-and-out strikers; Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette. 2Nketiah has not scored in the Premier League this seasonCredit: Getty 2Wright has slammed the young star for not making the most of his chancesCredit: Getty Lacazette is currently the club's first-choice attacker, however he has scored just two goals in the last 15 games. Nketiah has barely made the most of his chances either, recording just one assist in the Premier League this season. Legendary Arsenal striker Wright recently slammed the 22-year-old for not making the most of his time on the pitch. In an interview with the Arseblog podcast, he said: "For the last [however] many games we’ve got left, I would probably sit Eddie Nketiah down and say, 'Listen, I don’t know what the f*** is going on in your head, but we’ve got rid of Aubameyang, you’re an up-and-coming striker.

    In this article CSGP JLL UMH HHC Americans who are short on cash to make rent may need to face an uncomfortable reality: Conditions will likely get worse before they get better.U.S. housing supply fell to the lowest levels observed in over 20 years, according to the National Association of Realtors. That's dramatically pushing up prices for consumers, and catching the attention of leaders. "The most immediate challenge is a lack of lumber and other kinds of building materials," says Rob Dietz, chief economist at the National Association of Home Builders. "The other challenge, and it's one that's going to be with us for some time, is a lack of skilled labor."Architects say better planning could ease cost burdens while shoring up public health.

    kate_sept2004 | E+ | Getty Images At its heart the American Dream is a promise of progress – that each generation will have more opportunity for prosperity than the last. In the post-war era, parents were virtually able to take it for granted that their children would go further and do better than they had. However, the one-two economic punch of the Great Recession and the pandemic have put this promise in peril for millennials and Gen Z. In the face of these major economic setbacks, a real-time reordering of the American economy, and recent headwinds like high inflation, younger Americans will need to be more financially savvy to succeed. Right now, too many young Americans lack the fundamental knowledge needed to navigate such treacherous financial waters. According to the Milken Institute, only 57% of Americans are financially literate. A 2018 assessment of 15-year-old students found that 16% were below a proficient level of financial literacy and only 22% demonstrated a basic level of financial literacy. This lack of knowledge leaves young people unprepared at just the time in life...
    (CNN)As the nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court has ignited a discussion about the historic lack of diversity on the nation's highest court, her ascendance has also renewed focus on the absence of Black judges on the federal judiciary's lower courts.Of the 3,852 people who have been confirmed as federal judges, a CNN analysis of data from the Federal Judicial Center shows that only 240 of them -- 6% -- have been Black. Just 71 of them have been Black women. More than three-quarters of all the judges have been White men. And while strides have been made in recent years to improve the demographic makeup of the federal bench, the judiciary still skews dramatically toward White, male judges, especially when compared to the rest of the country. Almost 80% of all Article III judges -- the federal judges who are nominated by a US president and confirmed by the US Senate -- are White, and 71% are men, with large gaps persisting in Latino, Black and women's representation in the federal courts, the data shows, despite...

    Russian soldiers taking part in the invasion of Ukraine are in 'complete disarray', according to voice recordings obtained by a British intelligence company.  The intercepted radio messages indicate that troops are refusing to obey central command orders to shell Ukrainian towns and are complaining about running out of supplies of food and fuel. The recordings are among around 24 hours of material obtained by intelligence firm ShadowBreak since the invasion of Ukraine began last week.  In one of the eavesdropped conversations, listened to by The Telegraph, a soldier reportedly sounds as though he is crying.  In another, a soldier is heard losing his temper when asking when food or fuel will arrive. He says: 'We've been here for three days! When the hell is it going to be ready?'

    Brian Flores is suing the NFL over the league’s lack of diversity among head coaches and executives, but the optics of the law firm he chose might not be doing him any favors. Last week, Flores hit the NFL with a lawsuit, alleging racial discrimination within the league’s hiring process for head coaches. While Flores has a fair argument regarding the lack of Black representation among NFL head coaches, he hired an all White law firm to help plead his case. After it was previously reported by Outkick founder Clay Travis, Fox Sports host Emmanuel Acho admitted he hoped to brush this aspect of the lawsuit “under the rug,” but couldn’t. “I noticed a complete, utter lack of diversity in that law firm,” Acho told his Speak for Yourself co-host Marcellus Wiley. “All of the partners in the law firm are White. And if you go to the law firm’s webpage, every person of the 19 people on that webpage, you will not find one Black person.” “You are suing the NFL because of a lack of diversity,” Acho continued....
    The View’s Sunny Hostin questioned why Jeff Zucker, the longtime head of CNN, had to resign over his relationship with Allison Gollust, while she was able to keep her job. The hosts of The View tackled the shocking resignation on Thursday, pointing to the fact that the two were involved in a consensual relationship. “I think the problem is the optics of this. Because if you have advanced at all or garnered special favor from a boss you’re intimate with, that’s problematic in a workplace,” said Sara Haines. Haines noted that while Gollust may be “qualified” for her job as a CNN executive, the relationship created an issue with “optics and fairness.” Sunny Hostin went on to highlight Katie Couric’s passage on Zucker and Gollust in her book Going There, in which she said the relationship between the two made her “really uncomfortable.” “Now you have someone like Allison Gollust who is saying, I’m going to stay here,” Hostin continued. “She started out as a publicist, a senior publicist. And now she’s the Executive Vice President at CNN.” Hostin added that one could interpret her promotions as...
    Commuters arrive at Grand Central Station with Metro-North during morning rush hour in New York City.Angela Weiss | AFP | Getty Images Thanks to the historic stock market rebound from pandemic lows, affluent 401(k)-holders and savvy investors in the U.S. enjoyed double-digit returns from stocks over the past two years. But not for the majority of Black Americans. Only 34% of Black American households owned equity investments, compared to 61% of white families, according to Federal Reserve Board's most recent survey in 2019. The average value of stocks Black Americans owned only amounted to $14,400, nearly a quarter of what their white peers held, the data said. "Because Black households are less likely to be invested in the stock market and on every level less likely to be engaged in the financial system, they not only entered the pandemic with large gaps, the likelihood is that we are going to see some of these gaps widen coming out of the pandemic," said John Lettieri, the Economic Innovation Group's president and CEO. The primary way that Americans build wealth and invest is through retirement...
    An effort to establish the first state-run single-payer healthcare system in the United States ended at the last minute after its author realized he lacked the votes to make it viable. The bill, known as AB 1400, was scheduled to be brought before the California Assembly on Monday. Assemblyman Ash Kalra, who had initially authored the bill, decided to pull the proposal, noting that it did not have enough support to pass. "Despite heavy opposition and substantial misinformation from those that stand to profit from our current healthcare system, we were able to ignite a realistic and achievable path toward single-payer and bring AB 1400 to the floor of the Assembly," Kalra said in a statement. "However, it became clear that we did not have the votes necessary for passage, and I decided the best course of action is to not put AB 1400 for a vote today."

    The family of rapper Drakeo the Ruler announced Thursday it will file a wrongful death lawsuit against the promoters of the L.A. music festival where he was fatally stabbed backstage, blaming a lack of security at the December event. The family of the 28-year-old rapper, whose real name was Darrell Caldwell, also released a video showing a mob of men dressed in red assaulting Drakeo before he was stabbed. Drakeo was one of a dozen high-profile rappers scheduled to perform at the Once Upon a Time in L.A. festival on Dec. 18 at the Banc of California Stadium in Exposition Park. The video shows the assailants swarm Drakeo, who falls to the ground as half a dozen young men repeatedly deliver blows. Drakeo was stabbed in the neck and rushed to a nearby hospital, where he died of his injuries, authorities said. His killers remain at large. “Mr. Caldwell was essentially lynched by over 40 to 60 people, and as you also saw, Mr. Caldwell had no security,” said attorney James Bryant, who represents the Caldwell family. “That video ran...
    At a time when Donald Trump’s status as 2024’s GOP frontrunner remains rock solid, I’m left wondering: Could Joe Biden’s weakness leave voters yearning for the return of a strongman? In a rational world, the thought would be absurd. Trump not only lost re-election, he continues to remind us of why the possibility of returning him to office should be a non-starter. But coupled with Biden’s floundering performance, Trump’s continued hold on the Republican Party makes it an eerily real possibility. Biden, the would-be anti Trump, has been guilty of aping some of Trump’s most divisive behavior. Still, Trump remains a uniquely dangerous political figure. He did, after all, attempt to overturn the 2020 elections and incited the Capitol riot. We are reminded of these facts on the regular. Take, for example, new revelations that the Trump campaign was actively involved in orchestrating efforts to present forged state election certificates, falsely claiming that pro-Trump electors were the legitimate electors. (And in case you think the slow drip of bad news will soon cease, the Supreme Court’s decision to allow Trump...
    Lawyers for disgraced reality star Josh Duggar have requested an acquittal in his child sex abuse trial due to a lack of evidence, a month after the 33-year-old was convicted of the 'worst of the worst' child porn charges.  A motion filed on January 19 by Duggar's legal team, led by defense attorney Justin Gelfand, requested an acquittal or a new trial if an acquittal is denied.  'The evidence elicited at trial does not support a conviction on either count — even in the light most favorable to the Government,' the motion, seen by TODAY, said.  'The Government failed to adduce any evidence that Duggar "knew that the visual depictions were of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct" - a necessary element for conviction of each count.'  Duggar was convicted in December on charges of possessing child pornography and receipt of child pornography, though his legal team indicated at the time they intend to appeal.  The trial in Fayetteville, Arkansas heard how Duggar used his considerable tech skills to scour the dark web for videos of little girls being tortured, humiliated...
    President Joe Biden will push the Senate on Tuesday to eliminate the filibuster in order to pass voting rights legislation in a speech in Atlanta that some activists will boycott to protest the administration's lack of action on the issue. Stacey Abrams, a major advocate for voting rights and a gubenatorial candidate, is one who will not be at Biden's event but it's because of a 'conflict,' according to her aides. Biden, who will be accompanied by Vice President Kamala Harris, will tout 'democracy over autocracy' in a hard-hitting speech designed to pressure senators into action.   'The next few days, when these bills come to a vote, will mark a turning point in this nation. Will we choose democracy over autocracy, light over shadow, justice over injustice?,' he will say, according to excerpts released from the White House. 'I know where I stand. I will not yield. I will not flinch. I will defend your right to vote and our democracy against all enemies foreign and domestic. And so the question is where will the institution of United States Senate stand?,'...
    A recent poll analyzed by the Wall Street Journal found that Americans are stuck in a state of discontent. Economic malaise, which was so much a part of the feckless Carter administration, seems to be having its second act under Biden and the Democrats. Gas prices rising, store shelves not fully stocked, inflation in lumber and beef prices — all maladies that inordinately hurt the middle class. Lumber prices have gone up so much that I saw a termite at the Range Rover dealership paying cash for the only car left on the lot. And what are the Democrats in D.C. and the media doing? They are focused on the Jan. 6 protest at the U.S.  Capitol and trying, in a Russian-hoax-kind-of-way, to channel their inner Comey and “get” Trump for what they think he should have done. What a waste of time. Biden is not known to be knowledgeable about economics; he is a life-long politician. He appoints socialist types to high level positions. They are doing to our country what socialist policies did to Venezuela. With all the...
    A team of nine black climbers is attempting to scale Mount Everest to tackle the mountain's 'intentional lack of access for black people' and mountaineering's 'colonial history'. The Full Circle Everest Expedition, which climbing leader Fred Campbell described as 'the first all black and brown expedition to the highest place on earth' in an Instagram video, is hoping to change the future of mountaineering. One of the first men to complete the climb was Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, a man of color from Nepal, who scaled Mount Everest with sir Edmund Hillary, from New Zealand, in 1953. In fact, many people of color from the Sherpa community climb the mountain daily during peak season, and outside of Nepal, 'Sherpa' has also become a name for mountain guides.  Since 1953, a total of 10,155 people have reached the towering mountain's summit.  A team of nine black climbers dubbed the Full Circle Everest Expedition - which nods to the team's efforts to highlight diversity in mountaineering - is attempting to scale Mount Everest to tackle the sport's 'colonial history' Team leader, 58-year-old Philip Henderson,...
    FLAMIN' Hot Cheetos are reportedly in short supply because of a lack of workers as Frito-Lay aimed to hire 15,000 employees to deal with demand. Social media erupted with rumors this week that the popular snack was being discontinued after weeks of speculation about a shortage. 2Frito-Lay says it is still producing Flamin' Hot Cheetos despite rumors of discontinuationCredit: Getty 2The company was adding 15,000 workers to help deal with demandCredit: Getty The company responded to the barrage of GIFs and tweets from concerned consumers on Monday, simply stating, "We're still producing this snack." Concerns about a possible end to production came after social media users adamantly said supplies of the snack are becoming harder to find. LABOR ISSUES AFFECTING SUPPLY It is understood that several of the company's internal plants are operating at less than full output and more skilled machine operators are needed. Shortages of packaging materials, seasoning, oil, and starches were also said to be making production challenging, as ocean freight, port congestion, and rail issues are affecting global supply chains, including Frito-Lay's. The company said...

    Despite its moniker as a “bipartisan infrastructure bill,” the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act contains no conservative victories but has many leftist carveouts. President Joe Biden signed the $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law, marking Biden’s most significant legislative victory since Congress passed his coronavirus rescue plan in March, the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan. This infrastructure bill serves as one part of Biden’s infrastructure agenda. The other bill, the $1.75 trillion reconciliation Build Back Better Act, would fund “human infrastructure,” expanding American welfare programs and climate change policies. Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and other Democrats have compared his Build Back Better legislative agenda to the New Deal and the Great Society programs even though Democrats have scaled down the Build Back Better Act from $3.5 to $1.75 trillion.

    New York City detectives are plagued with low morale, low staffing and a lack of support from leadership 18 months after George Floyd's death sparked national backlash against police departments, according to a union president who represents over 19,000 active and retired NYPD detectives.  "It’s the first time in history that you had all three entities of government turn their backs on the police — and I mean on a city level, state level and federal level," Detectives' Endowment Association President Paul DiGiacomo told Fox News.  In July 2020, Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City council voted to cut the city’s police department’s budget by roughly $1 billion amid intense public pressure to defund the police. The budget cuts resulted in the 600-officer, plainclothes anti-crime unit being disbanded, the delay of a cadet class of roughly 900 officers and decreased overtime. NYC POLICE UNION SUES CITY OVER VACCINE MANDATE "We have to build up the morale of the police department," DiGiacomo said. "We have to make people like the police again."

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The North Miami Beach condo evacuated back in July was once again the scene of a protest. “From the second of July to now I cry every day because I want my home,” said 83-year-old Sonya. READ MORE: Rise In School Fights Another Pandemic CasualtySonya, a Holocaust survivor, for more than 25 years has called Crestview Towers home. But back in July, the condo was deemed unsafe. Now, for the last four months she’s been basically homeless. “I’m used to this my apartment, my bed, everything mine,” she said. “Now I stay with a friend there… then another friend take me.” On Tuesday, Sonya and other Crestview Towers residents gathered to protest the lack of work being done to repair the property. “It’s been already four months and we’re still in limbo,” said Yanosh Serebryanik. Maria Echevarria added, “It’s nothing being done. Now they’re telling us we’re not going back until next year.” CBS4 reached out to Katzman Chandler, the attorney for Crestview Towers’ homeowner association. We never heard back.

    Nicolaj Sebrell is a Senior Equity Analyst at Rowan Dartington. Considering the volatility in the world, especially in Asia, and rising inflation in the US, gold has indeed been curiously calm.  The gold price has remained range bound for the past year mostly trading between $1,700 to $1,900/oz.  Geopolitical and macro events involving China, Afghanistan, inflation and Covid19 seem to have had little impact on the gold price. Calm: Considering the volatility in the world, especially in Asia, and rising inflation in the US, gold has indeed been curiously calm Gold's greatest correlation tends to be with real rates in the US. I say 'tends' because correlations change over time with gold reacting to rates in one period but risk in another.  Nonetheless, the gold price has shown considerable negative correlation with the real yield of the US 10-year treasury bond, which makes intuitive sense.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Bitcoin hits record highs: The cryptocurrency soars past...

    Out-of-practice pilots have admitted to making more than 100 potentially disastrously mistakes this past year after returning from COVID-related layoffs.  In confidential reports filed to the US Aviation Safety Reporting System, one pilot said he forgot to start his plane's second engine for take off in December, which could have caused a disaster if he had not aborted the flight.  Another pilot, who had just returned from a seven-month layoff due to the pandemic, reported that he had not lowered the plane's wheels when landing and managed to pull out just 800 feet from the tarmac.  And a captain who was back for the first time in six months reported that he headed off in the wrong direction during take off, Bloomberg reports.   While the ASRS only reported two incidents attributed to 'a lack of flying' in 2019 and none in 2018, the pandemic brought about 128 such incidents from March 2020 to June 2021, according to the most recent data available.    Oliver Wyman, a US-based business consulting firm, warned that the problem was worldwide as pandemic cuts left about...
    CNN’s Victor Blackwell had a contentious interview with Democratic National Committee chairman Jaime Harrison about whether it was a good idea for Democrats to keep campaigning on the platform of opposing former President Donald Trump. Harrison spoke to Blackwell on Thursday to talk about the DNC’s level of confidence in Virginia and other states where they’ve been spending money to boost Democratic candidates. Harrison lauded Terry McAuliffe over his political record, but he also blasted McAuliffe’s Republican gubernatorial rival Glenn Youngkin, calling him “dangerous” and a “Trump acolyte.” Blackwell acknowledged that Youngkin is facing a dilemma since he has flirted with Trump’s Big Lie about the 2020 Election while also trying to appeal to moderates. The CNN anchor turned to Harrison and asked, “if he is as much of a Trump acolyte as you say he is, why isn’t Terry McAuliffe walking away with this?” “Less than a year ago, President [Joe] Biden beat former President Trump by ten points, the largest victory for a Democrat since 1944 in Virginia,” Blackwell said. “If he’s a Trump acolyte, this shouldn’t be...
    IT'S getting darker earlier and your summer wardrobe has finally retired - with fluffy jumpers making a comeback. For many people the winter months can be tough to contend with, with some suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). 1if you're struggling with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) then there are things you can do to helpCredit: Getty - Contributor The NHS says that SAD is also known as the 'winter depression', this is because symptoms are usually more obvious during the winter months. It's a type of depression and for those heavily impacted by the condition - it can have a severe affect on your day-to-day activities. While the exact cause of SAD isn't clear, experts say it could be down to a lack of sunlight during the winter months. This is because a lack of sunlight might stop a part of the brain called the hypothalamus from working properly. This is know to affect the body's production of melatonin, which is a hormone that makes you feel sleepy. It could also impact serotonin levels - which impact your mood, appetite...
    A senior ABC News source says it's time to 'extinguish the dumpster fire at The View' after Kamala Harris became embroiled in the chat show's COVID fiasco last week.   The Vice President was set to sit down with the program's stars for a lengthy face-to-face interview Friday before co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro 'tested positive' for COVID at the eleventh hour.  The pair were booted from the show's stage as producers scrambled to make sure Harris hadn't come into contact with any potentially infected employees. She eventually conducted a shortened interview via video link from another room at ABC's New York studios.  Harris' office is said to be 'deeply concerned' that the positive test results were returned so late. They are also 'puzzled' by a lack of explanation from producers.  A senior ABC News insider exclusively told DailyMail.com Wednesday that the fallout from the fiasco is likely to be long-lasting  'We've always boasted about being the most important political show in America but now the White House thinks we're a joke,' the anonymous source raged.  'Friday's show encapsulates all...
    New Jersey Congressman Bill Pascrell told SiriusXM host Dean Obeidallah that his fellow Democrats lack the testicular fortitude to call for the criminal prosecution of former President Donald Trump in connection with the Capitol insurrection. On Tuesday’s edition of The Dean Obeidallah Show, the host talked with Rep. Pascrell about a recent tweet in which Pascrell reiterated his desire to see Trump charged criminally. “You’ve tweeted and been outspoken that Donald Trump, you won’t mention the former president, the disgraced man who incited an act of domestic terrorism on our capitol on January 6th, should be criminally charged. I cannot applaud you more for doing that,” Obeidallah said, and asked “How come we don’t hear more Democrats, in one voice, because it’s not partisan it’s patriotic…” “They are afraid,” Pascrell cut in. “We are afraid, we are afraid to say it.” “Let me tell you something, Democrats — as we as we say in the old country — have to have the coglionis, have to be able to stand up,” Pascrell continued. “That’s what the American people want. Don’t be Willy Nilly about...
    Families across America’s heartland have had a difficult year and a half. The COVID-19 pandemic, the economic troubles it caused, and an ongoing labor shortage have made it more difficult than ever for America’s hardworking families in rural and agricultural communities to unlock the full potential of our modern economy. This is especially true for those communities that disproportionately lack access to affordable and reliable broadband internet. To secure a future of prosperity for America’s rural communities, we need to completely bridge the digital divide and ensure every American has access to the digital technologies that support success in our modern world. Substantial positive investments toward achieving the national goal of bridging the digital divide through broadband deployment, financial support for broadband service and digital skills training were included in the bipartisan Infrastructure and Jobs Investment Act recently passed by the U.S. Senate. Now, America’s rural communities are counting on the U.S. House of Representatives to swiftly pass this package, including the $65 billion down payment on closing the broadband gap. The broadband investments included in the bipartisan infrastructure package...
    The idea of ‘ageing’ overnight after a traumatic event sounds like a figure of speech — it was famously expressed in relation to Marie Antoinette, the last Queen of France.  Her hair allegedly went white the night before she was executed by guillotine during the French Revolution, aged 38. Yet research has now shown that going white overnight and other forms of rapid ageing are a biological fact. A U.S. study found that new mothers who had less than seven hours’ sleep a night in their baby’s first six months were biologically three to seven years older than those who had seven or more hours’ rest, as reported in the journal Sleep Health last month. Research has now shown that going white overnight and other forms of rapid ageing are a biological fact The researchers, from the University of California, Los Angeles, looked at 33 new mothers aged 23 to 45, measuring the length of their telomeres. These are DNA structures found at the end of chromosomes that are seen as a marker for biological ageing (more on this later)....
