    Former President Donald Trump complained to Sean Hannity that he’s being “attacked” so close to an election he isn’t even running in. Thursday’s Hannity aired part two of the host’s interview with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate. On Wednesday, New York Attorney General Letitia James announced the state filed a civil suit against the Trump Organization that alleges the company overvalued assets to obtain low-interest loans from financial institutions. The suit seeks $250 million, as well as the banning of Trump and his adult children at the company from operating businesses in the state. “Donald Trump falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself and to cheat the system, thereby cheating all of us,” James said at a press conference. Trump called the lawsuit an attack by New York Democrats before claiming there’s a tradition of not bringing legal action against politicians so close to an election. Of course, Trump is not running this year. “And there’s a rule,” Trump said. “It’s an unwritten law. You never do this politically. You won’t see Hunter Biden...
    Prince Harry's autobiography will be published as planned in November despite the Queen's death, a royal author said today. Tom Bower, whose biography of Meghan Markle was released earlier this year, claimed the Duke of Sussex was 'insisting' on the original date being honoured. 'I am told tonight that Harry is insisting that his book is published in November,' he told GB News. 'Apparently the publishers are not too certain, but he says if they don't publish it will be a breach of contract. That's what I'm told. 'It's extraordinary. But on the other hand it fits the bill, because Harry and Meghan's finances depend entirely on the book and on Netflix. 'And also, I think they are convinced they're in the right and they want to get their own back.' Today, a source close to the Duke denied the claims Bower made to GB News. Meanwhile, Penguin has previously announced that Harry will be donating proceeds from the book to charity.

    Q: Dear Pat: I read your wonderfully informative online article recently on The Mercury News and East Bay Times, dated June 18, 2022: “When a buyer cancels the deal, who gets the deposit?” My father, a home seller, is finding himself in a similar situation outlined in the column. Our real estate agent says my father is not entitled to any earnest money deposit, but I disagree. (The agent represents both the buyer and my father.) I am hoping you can recommend any real estate attorneys or related resources who might review our specific situation and advise us. We suffered a real financial burden by losing the sale. My father and brother are buying a next-generation home together. This failed real estate transaction is causing us to spend thousands of dollars on an additional loan. Not to mention extra monthly payments we did not expect to make. This buyer made us wait three months while he tried to secure financing (on an original all-cash offer), only for him to continue dragging his feet. Please advise, and thanks in advance. ...
    THE largest asteroid to get up close and personal with Earth this year will make its knee-wobbling flyby this week. The space rock, named 7335 (1989 JA), will soar within 2.5million miles (4m km) of our pale blue dot on May 27, according to Nasa. 1 That's about ten times the distance between the Earth and the Moon – a stone's throw in space terms. What makes 7335 stand out, however, is its gargantuan size. According to Nasa's close approaches database, the rock is up to 1.1 miles (1.8 km) wide. That makes it four times bigger than the Empire State Building, or as tall as 1,000 people stacked on top of one another. Asteroid 7335 is travelling faster than a bullet but does not pose any immediate threat to our planet. The object hurtles past roughly once every seven years, giving scientists a chance to examine it up close. It's expected to make this year's flyby at 3:26 p.m. UK time (10:26 a.m. EST) on May 27, according to Nasa. It's one of seven space objects expected to make...

    TODD BOEHLY’S Chelsea takeover is reportedly “close” with Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s late rival bid allegedly “not under consideration”. Boehly was speculated to have been named as the preferred bidder for Chelsea despite a last-gasp £4billion offer from Ratcliffe. 2Todd Boehly's Chelsea takeover is allegedly 'close' to being finalisedCredit: Getty 2Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s late rival bid is allegedly 'not under consideration'Credit: PA And Boehly’s team were told they had been granted a “period of exclusivity” to discuss the final terms and conditions of a takeover package.

    During a Monday appearance on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) discussed the importance of investigating Hunter Biden’s business dealings with businessmen and government officials in China. Grassley said it was necessary to know if there was “any sort of blackmail opportunity for China against the United States” because of President Joe Biden’s son’s relationships. “What I and Senator Johnson have done at this point is bring out the facts and the bank records that prove that there was a close relationship between Hunter Biden, maybe James Biden, and business people in China that have close contacts with the communist party and with the military there,” Grassley explained. “And so, what’s concerning to us — we release all these documents. What’s concerning to us is — is there any sort of blackmail opportunity for China against the United States because of those close working relationships? I say it’s concerning.” “We don’t have any records that would prove anything along that line, but when you have people high up in the Chinese government and business community, and you...
    DALLAS — For the briefest of moments, Quentin Grimes felt his kneecap jerk out of place. He even saw the displacement, which, to any athlete or human being, is a scary visual. So it could’ve been worse. Nearly two weeks later, the Knicks rookie was still knocking on wood when recounting his good fortune. “Yeah, I felt it. (My kneecap) was on the side of my knee,” Grimes said. “Then it popped back in when I rolled over. So luckily it wasn’t too bad.” Grimes, who was diagnosed with a subluxation of his right patella after his fall Feb. 25, is already back to sprinting and shooting. He’ll be re-evaluated by a doctor in New York over the weekend, and, barring any bad news, the next phase is full contact practice. He’s optimistic about a return “soon,” which is encouraging given the grim outlook of many non-contact knee injuries. Coach Tom Thibodeau raved about Grimes’ commitment to recovery, reinforcing the expectation the 21-year-old will play again this season regardless of where the Knicks sit in the standings. “Every step, there hasn’t...
    Dear Amy: I have a terrible habit and it’s getting worse: I hum. Amy Dickinson  It’s usually the same few notes over and over again. I try to silence myself, and I still hear the notes in my brain. It seems to be most prevalent when I’m doing some mundane task like brushing my teeth or housework, but it’s getting so I can’t even walk the dog or work at my computer without incessant humming. It stops if I’m listening to music, watching TV, driving, reading, or when I’m around other people. I recently went through a divorce, where my husband of 25 years left me for a much younger woman, and I’m living alone for the first time in a long time.

    A MASSIVE space rock will fly past Earth this week in a nerve-shredding close shave, according to Nasa. Asteroid 2022 BH7 will make its close approach on Friday and is projected to be as long as the Empire State Building. 2A huge asteroid will make a close pass of Earth on FridayCredit: Getty Fortunately, it is on track to soar safely past our planet and does not pose any threat to life on Earth. Were it to hit, 2022 BH7 would be large enough to destroy an entire continent. Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has provided a rundown of the space rock on its near-Earth Object (NEO) online database. The platform keeps track of anything passing within 120million miles of Earth – a relatively close call by the agency's standards. Thousands of NEOs are tracked by scientists to monitor whether they're on a collision course with our planet. If there's a small chance they'll collide with the Earth and cause significant damage in future, they're labelled "Potentially Hazardous".

    It is obvious now: The Miami Dolphins don’t want a head coach. They want an offensive coordinator to call a head coach. They want a diminished leader in the traditional sense because their great organization will lead the team. The Dolphins, in short, want to give the keys of the franchise to general manager Chris Grier in a way like never before — and a way he’s never earned or wanted. That’s because they’re convinced they’re close to contending. I kid you not. That’s Plan A, anyhow, and it goes like this: 1. Re-define Tua Tagovailoa as The Man now that bad-guy Brian Flores is gone; 2. Keep the old defensive staff, if possible, so this rising defense keeps rising; 3. Invest the dwindling draft value, much of the $70 million in free-agent money and sign a few therapists to heal this broken offense; 4. Hire an offensive coordinator and call him a head coach. That’s it. That’s the public Plan A. That was the idea even before Brian Daboll took the...
    A GIGANTIC asteroid will make a knee-wobbling flyby of Earth today, Nasa has warned. Asteroid 7482 (1994 PC1) is estimated to be around 3,551 feet long – making it larger than any building on Earth. 2 It's expected to zip safely past our planet at 4:51 p.m. EST (9:51 p.m. UK time) on January 18. Nasa is keeping a close eye on the huge space rock and has added it to its "close approaches" database. The asteroid is expected to pass Earth at a distance of around 1.2million miles – roughly five times the gap between our planet and the Moon. This may seem a fair distance but it's a close shave in space terms. Nasa considers anything passing within 120million miles of Earth a Near-Earth Object (NEO).

    The most famous news at the close of the market in MLB on July 30 was the transfer of Max scherzer and Trea Turner at Dodgers of the Angels. As we always said, not one but two members of the baseball royalty made it to Los Angeles. Max He is the holder of three Cy Young Awards and has been selected eight times to the All-Star Game throughout his career. The right-hander is already close to 3,000 strikeouts allowed and without a doubt, among the active pitchers he is one of those who surely has a guaranteed position in Cooperstown. Max he also has his World Series ring and is looking for the second. Perhaps that is why he had a predilection for the West at the time of change. Everything described will be on his plaque in the Hall of the Immortals of Baseball, but at the same time he is the holder of an unattractive record that he will surely want to forget or at least not talk about. It is that all the good that can...

While she added that they won't be "strictly enforced," she said: "They are not necessarily letting those barriers down."

    The White House on Wednesday distanced  President Biden from Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar after she stood by her comments comparing the US and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban.

    (CNN)Two large sites in Texas used to shelter unaccompanied migrant children amid the influx in arrivals earlier this year will close by early June, the Department of Health and Human Services Department confirmed, marking among the first closures as the number of kids in border facilities drops. In March, the Biden administration took the unprecedented step of opening up emergency intake sites at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas and the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio to accommodate thousands of children who arrived at the US-Mexico border alone. The sites were intended to be temporary and a result, some leases are set to expire. The lease for the San Antonio site expires May 30 and the lease for the Dallas site expires June 2. HHS said it doesn't anticipate extending either leases and is working to unify minors with their sponsors, such as family or guardians, in the US.RELATED: Migrant children have been in US custody for weeks.

    Josh Duggar is set to be released on bail on May 6 but Arkansas Magistrate Judge Christy Comstock said she can’t in good conscience send him back home and thus the reality star will be living with folks who are "close friends" with Josh and Anna Duggar. Duggar, 33, will be placed with third-party custodian Maria and Lacount Reber – a familiar family who are close enough with Duggar and his wife Anna and have also known the family for about six or eight years through their church. The family says they have a self-contained space on their property where Duggar can live while he awaits his looming trial. Duggar’s father, Jim Bob Duggar, called the family friends and asked that they be third-party custodians for Duggar, according to the Rebers who were called as defense witnesses during Duggar’s virtual detention hearing on Wednesday.

    A Michigan restaurant owner who had her license revoked and spent four nights in jail after she refused to comply with a coronavirus ban on indoor dining is suing the state to have her contempt of court findings dropped and fines related to her decision dismissed. The Associated Press reported that an attorney for Marlena Pavlos-Hackney filed a motion Tuesday demanding a refund for $15,000 paid in fines, arguing that she appeared in court for a March 19 hearing at which she was found in contempt of court without a lawyer despite having retained counsel. Pavlos-Hackney was jailed after being found in contempt of court but released after officers were convinced that her restaurant would remain closed. The owner of Marlena's Bistro and Pizzeria in Holland, Mich. was arrested last month after her food service license was suspended in January over her refusal to stop serving customers indoors following the state's pandemic ban in November. A sign previously on the door of her pizza shop read: “Welcome. We are a Constitutionally Compliant Business. We are not infringing on anyone’s inalienable rights. By law, we do...
    Piney Point, the former phosphate mining facility that leaked millions of gallons of wastewater near Tampa Bay, will soon take steps toward "permanent closure," Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said Tuesday.  A leak broke through one of the facility's wastewater ponds last month, spewing millions of gallons of wastewater into the environment. Though officials got the leak under control last week and were able to redirect it to stay onsite instead of flowing into a nearby creek, part of that process entailed pumping untreated wastewater from the reservoir into Port Manatee, which leads into Tampa Bay.  DeSantis spoke from Port Manatee on Tuesday, saying "we've made good strides" since he visited the facility on Easter Sunday, and that officials have "mitigated the imminent threat to public safety."  On Saturday, a steel plate was installed in the leaking south pond to stop the breach. The pond still has 221 million gallons of waste- and stormwater, according to the state's most recent data. Piezometers have also been installed around the pond to detect any water pressure changes and "help ensure the integrity...

    By EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS, Associated Press JACKSON, Miss.

Mississippi is one of more than 20 states with lawmakers proposing restrictions on athletics or gender-confirming health care for transgender minors this year.

    Donald Trump on Sunday attacked Joe Biden as being an 'America last' president, attacking his successor for being in thrall to China in his first speech since leaving the White House. Addressing the conservative faithful at CPAC - the Conservative Political Action Conference - Trump said that Biden had had 'the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history.' He strongly criticized the president's decision to rejoin the World Health Organization, describing the WHO as 'puppets for China', and insisting Biden was unable to rein the Chinese in. Trump complained about companies relocating to China, describing China as a country that has 'ripped us off for years' and 'should not be rewarded.'

    In mid-December, Craig Tiley, a serious, discreet guy, always praised for his good work at the wheel of the Australian Open, proudly announced that he had reached an agreement with the Government of his country so that the first major of the season could be held, with the exception that the start would be delayed for three weeks and would finally run from February 8 to 21. Everything was praise and praise for the model Tiley, whose effort was applauded by tennis players and professionals until in recent days several turns of events have taken place that have drawn a new scenario far from what was promised. This is what the vast majority of tennis players who have traveled to the Antipodes denounce, now clawing with him and the great Australian tournament, transformed at this time into a tinderbox based in Melbourne. All of them knew about the requirements to be able to participate; in essence, a rigorous quarantine as soon as they landed there and the exhaustive daily control – with a five-hour concession to go to train...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WJZ) — Women’s clothing retailer Christopher & Banks filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Thursday and plans to close “a significant portion, if not all” of its stores, the company said. The retailer has several stores in Maryland, including at the Harford Mall in Bel Air, TownMall of Westminster in Carroll County and the Francis Scott Key Mall in Frederick. It’s unclear if any of those locations would stay open if any stores do. In a news release, the company said it has launched a store closing and liquidation process and is in “active discussions” with potential buyers for its online presence. As of Wednesday, the Minneapolis-based clothing company had 449 stores across 44 states.
    DOWNEY (CBSLA) — Walmart will shut down its Downey, Torrance, and Huntington Beach locations through Friday morning so each store can undergo a deep cleaning and sanitization. Walmart officials say the Downey Neighborhood Market, 1445 East Foothill Blvd.; the Torrance Supercenter, 22015 Hawthorne Blvd.; and the Huntington Beach Supercenter, 8230 Talbert Ave., will close Wednesday at 2 p.m. Each store will remain closed through Thursday and reopen Friday at 7 a.m. The retail giant says the closures are part of a company-initiated program to allow a third-party cleaning crew time to thoroughly clean and sanitize the buildings. Walmart has also closed stores in Panorama City, Corona, Compton, Paramount, South Gate, Lancaster and Upland over the past few weeks for similar deep cleanings. The company has not said whether any of its employees have tested positive at any of its stores, and only its Compton location has been cited recently due to lack of compliance with the health officer order, according to the LA County Department of Public Health. “Everything we’re doing is for the well-being of our associates and customers,...

Battle-weary Manchester, after more than four months of a devastating draconian local lockdown, is being given false hope its time in Tier 3 could nearly be up. ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 12Our cities, including London, are far from being openCredit: PA:Press Association Defiant London, with marginally increasing rates of Covid in some boroughs, is threatened with being placed on the naughty step by being booted out of Tier 2. Boastful Cornwall, basking in its Tier 1 status, is warning pesky visitors not to ruin the fun. Decision Day on Wednesday could determine whether thousands of businesses go under; whether a young actor gives up on a lifelong dream to pursue a creative career; whether your local pub will ever reopen; and whether far too many people continue to die at home from heart disease, strokes and other usually treatable afflictions. I’ve lost any hope that such critical decisions will be made sensibly. We know now the hysterical and prissy wusses...
    A suspected Chinese spy got so close to a number of politicians -- including Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif. -- that the FBI stepped in to disrupt the situation, even going so far as to give a “defensive briefing” to Swalwell, a report has found. Axios reported that a Chinese national named Fang Fang or Christine Fang targeted up-and-coming local politicians, including those who had the potential to become national figures. CHINA CONDEMNS NEW US SANCTIONS, SALE OF MILITARY EQUIPMENT TO TAIWAN Current and former intelligence officials told the outlet that Fang used campaign fundraising, networking and rallies as well as romantic relationships with at least two Midwestern mayors to gain proximity to political power. She also attended regional mayoral conferences. While officials do not believe she received or passed on classified information, officials believed the case “was a big deal, because there were some really, really sensitive people that were caught up in the network,” one official told the outlet. As for Swalwell, Fang reportedly took part in fundraising for the liberal congressman's 2014 reelection campaign -- although she did not make donations nor...
    A restaurant in California is refusing to follow new coronavirus restrictions and erected a banner reading “The French Laundry” over its sign, in reference to the swanky French restaurant where Gov. Gavin Newsom was seen breaking his own virus orders. “This Redondo Beach restaurant has a not so subtle message for CA. Owner Alex says he’s defying LA County orders to close outdoor dining because it’s not about him, it’s about all the workers that rely on him for livelihoods, and he can’t leave them stranded right before Christmas,” KTLA reporter Christina Pascucci tweeted, accompanied by a photo.

    Some staff members at a school in Westchester will be staying home for a few days due to the potential of COVID-19 exposure. Bronxville Schools Superintendent Roy Montesano issued a letter to parents late on Thursday, Nov. 5 cautioning that a staff member - who is not associated with a specific classroom - tested positive for the virus. According to Montesano, the staffer was not in the Bronxville School on Thursday, and did not have any close contacts with students or teachers. Montesano said that the district is in the process of contact tracing to determine who may have been exposed to COVID-19 as of Tuesday, Nov. 3, when there was no in-person learning at the school. “Out of an abundance of caution, we are asking for a couple of staff members to stay home tomorrow and Monday (Nov. 9) so they can get tested, although they were not considered a ‘close’ contact,” Montesano said. “This information is provided as a reminder of the importance of adhering to social distancing, mask-wearing, and handwashing protocols,” he added. “This positive...
    While independent restaurants are struggling, with little hope of relief from Washington D.C. (which hasn't gotten any closer to signing a new pandemic relief bill), big restaurant chains are on the move in the south suburbs.  Eddie V's Prime Seafood opened this week in Greenwood Village, bringing a new concept to town from the Darden Group, which also runs Olive Garden, Yard House, Capital Grille and Bahama Breeze, among others. The spacious seafood house is just four miles up I-25 from the similarly named but completely unrelated Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef & Seafood. Along with seafood, live music and cocktails, Eddie V's notes that "through its Harvest Program, the restaurant prepares its surplus food that is not served to guests for donation to Covenant Cupboard Food Pantry." In Wheat Ridge, the lease is ending at the five-year-old Four Seasons Farmers and Artisans Market, at 7043 West 38th Avenue, so the market has decide to close permanently. Shoppers have until October 31 to pick up their winter squash and other fall produce. After that, owners Dick and Margaret Barkey will...

    By EDITH M. LEDERER, Associated Press UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. Security Council called on Turkey and Turkish-controlled northern Cyprus on Thursday to close a beach in uninhabitated Varosha that was opened this week and avoid any unilateral actions “that could raise tensions on the island.” Varosha’s Greek Cypriot inhabitants fled as Turkish troops advanced in 1974, when Turkey invaded Cyprus following a coup by supporters of union with Greece. Since then, the area had been placed under Turkish military control, cordoned off and left to the ravages of time. The Security Council adopted a resolution in 1984 which said any attempts to settle any part of Varosha by people other than its original inhabitants is “inadmissible.” It called “for the transfer of that area to the administration of the United Nations.” A 1992 resolution reaffirmed the 1984 resolution and called for Varosha to be put under control of the U.N. peacekeeping force in Cyprus — but that has not happened. The U.N.’s most powerful body on Friday reaffirmed “the status of Varosha as set out in previous U.N....
    (CNN)On Saturday, White House physician Sean Conley said this when asked about President Donald Trump's health and treatment:"This morning the President is doing very well. ... He is not on oxygen right now. He has not needed any today at all."Later in the day -- like less than an hour after Conley's statement -- came a contradictory statement from a "source familiar with the President's health" that said "the President's vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care."Asked about the discrepancy between the two statements on Sunday, Conley said this:"I was trying to reflect the upbeat attitude that the team, the President in his course of illness has had. I didn't want to give any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction, and in doing so it came off that we're trying to hide something."Read MoreWhat?Like, WHAT!Conley is a doctor.

    The following article is an opinion piece and reflects the views of only the author and not those of AllOnGeorgia. By: State Representative Vernon Jones.  Jones is a Democratic politician from Georgia. Jones was chief executive officer of Dekalb County, Georgia, from 2001 until 2009, and in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1993 to 2001. Jones was elected to the Georgia House in 2016. What you think of Joe Biden’s debate performance will depend on how closely you’re paying attention. Biden is hoping for a passive audience that won’t notice when he misdirects or substitutes bland platitudes for substantive answers. This isn’t Biden’s first rodeo. He has more experience debating in front of a national audience than any other candidate who competed in this election cycle, starting with his failed candidacy in 1988. Biden held his own during his first presidential primary debate, only to be driven out of the race a few months later by the first major plagiarism scandal of his career. Biden went back to Delaware...
    In the first year of the Trump presidency, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis would sleep in his gym clothes to save critical minutes in the event that he was awakened to news of an incoming missile from North Korea. President Trump had delegated to Mattis the authority to shoot down any missile that threatened the United States. But it would be up to Trump to decide whether to retaliate with nuclear weapons, a threat implicit in his public rhetoric about the U.S. being “locked and loaded” to meet any North Korean provocation with “fire and fury.” As tensions steady rose over the spring and summer and into the fall and winter of 2017, Mattis lived “on permanent alert,” according to new behind-the-scenes details from investigative reporter Bob Woodward’s latest book, Rage, published this month. “It was a nonstop crucible, personal and hellish. There were no holidays or weekends off, no dead time,” Woodward writes. Mattis’s thoughts, which likely could have come only from Mattis himself, reveal the battle-hardened Marine commander was burdened by the possibility that the escalating...
    Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski has said she would not vote for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s replacement until after the inauguration. Murkowski, a pro-choice moderate from Alaska, is often a swing vote in the Senate. Ginsburg died Friday evening at her home at the age of 87. “When Republicans held off Merrick Garland because nine months prior to the election was too close, we needed to let the people decide,” Murkowski said in August, according to The Hill. “And I agreed to do that. If we say now that months prior to the election is OK when nine months is not, that is a double standard and I don’t believe we should do it.” Last month, Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said she would not support confirming a new Supreme Court justice before the election or in a lame-duck session. She said that would be a “double standard” after what happened in 2016.https://t.co/BJqcDjP2oG pic.twitter.com/VOW1wSqsyR — Mike Baker (@ByMikeBaker) September 19, 2020 Murkowski also commented on the issue Friday afternoon only hours before Ginsburg’s death, echoing her previous stance. “Fair...
    Tom Brady had numerous rumored suitors in free agency, and according to Dan Patrick he strongly considered the Chicago Bears. During his first and almost surely only foray into free agency, Tom Brady seemed open to a lot o options. A certain points the Las Vegas Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans were prominent rumored suitors, with a path to some other teams if they wanted to sign him. He of course ultimately chose the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Chicago Bears are perpetually in need of a quarterback. In a certain light, they could have been regarded as a landing spot for Brady. But after years of December games in Foxboro, warmer climates seemed to be an easy priority for him. It’s already known the Buccaneers and Chargers were the finalists to sign Brady. But the identity of any other finalists, if there were any, has not been known and it’s moot now. But on his show Thursday, Dan Patrick reported the Bears were the third of three finalists. Via The Big Lead: “Did you know that the Bears...
    If Microsoft can successfully negotiate a deal with ByteDance, the company says it will add “world-class security, privacy, and digital safety protections” to the TikTok experience. And to be absolutely clear, there’s a chance these discussions may fall apart. That’s true for any high-profile acquisition, but this deal is particularly strange since it seems to be coming at the behest of a President who has talked of banning TikTok. Still, Microsoft could add some stability to the mobile app in the US, where ByteDance has been criticized for having nebulous ties to the Chinese government. TikTok has vigorously pushed back against implications that it was under the thumb of China , and said that it would refuse any user data requests from the country. The acquisition could also be good news for Facebook, which is planning to release its own TikTok competitor soon. Microsoft also says it’s aiming to “ensure transparency” with TikTok users while also maintaining “appropriate security oversight” by the governments where it’s operating the service. It’s unclear what the latter could amount to. Microsoft also claims it’ll...

    Two Jersey Shore beach towns are limiting the number of beach passes due to crowds. Belmar is capping the passes sold at 7,500 and Manasquan is limiting them to 1,000 per day on weekends, for any type of pass. Both were in effect as of Saturday. The new Belmar policy will "fluctuate to a lower number" depending on how many seasonal badge holders are on beaches and the tides on any given day, the borough's office of emergency management said. Certain Manasquan beaches will close for further access after they reach capacity, Council President Mike Mangan said. Parking lots will close, too, he said. Signs in the town will let arriving beachgoers know if sales for the day have bee halted. In Long Branch, which closed early last weekend due to overcrowding, beaches will close earlier, and beachgoers won't be able to use the VIPLY app to buy passes, once they hit capacity.
    Q: Our buyer’s agent, standing inches from the front door, was startled as it swung open. As he looked up, the home sellers appeared, greeting us sans face masks. Our buyer’s agent was wearing a face mask, gloves and disposable shoe coverings (“booties”). He was holding the house key that he had just retrieved from the electronic key safe. Our buyer’s agent retreated from the front porch and began removing his booties. As he was securing the house key back in its place, he said we would return another day. Before our buyer’s agent finished speaking, these home sellers started gesturing us into their home. This invitation left us frozen in place; my six-month pregnancy is demonstrably evident, and our buyer’s agent is in a high-risk category. My husband, shaking his head, politely explained that we would be declining their kind invite. The male home seller, appearing agitated, snapped back, “Oh, don’t be silly, come on in, this mask business is nonsense. It’s all about controlling you.” That’s when we said our goodbyes and made a hasty retreat to our...
    New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, a Democrat who was a House impeachment manager during President Trump's Senate trial, accused Attorney General William Barr's conduct of coming close to criminal wrongdoing. The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said on Thursday that Barr came "awfully close to bribery" through his handling of former Manhattan-based U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman's dismissal from his post. "The attorney general repeatedly attempted to entice Mr. Berman to step down voluntarily, even after Berman made clear that his leaving would disrupt certain sensitive cases," Nadler said to reporters after exiting a closed-door hearing on the subject. "We don't know yet if the attorney general's conduct is criminal, but that kind of quid pro quo is awfully close to bribery."
