    Ukrainian forces have taken down Russian troops’ stronghold in Izium, the city’s mayor has announced. TASS, a Russian News Agency, also reported the news, saying that “a decision was made to regroup Russian troops” from the Izium area to “build up efforts in the Donetsk region” instead. The city’s mayor, Valeriy Marchenko, has been in contact with police and emergency services to clear any hazards so that residents may return. “Izium was liberated today,” Marchenko told the New York Times. Russia’s forces sieged Izium nearly six months ago, and now the country has confirmed that all forces have now been pulled from the northeastern Ukrainian city. The new Ukrainian stronghold marks more rapid expansion into the northeast, a foray into the beginning of a new phase in the ongoing war. But Russia’s Ministry of Defense is staging this loss as a preplanned move, claiming that they pulled out to strengthen their forces in the eastern area of Ukraine. Izium, a key railway spot that was seized by Russia back in March, is an incredibly important turning point in the war....

    Families across America are cutting back on everything from summer holidays to restaurant treats and trips to the hair salon as they battle the highest inflation rates seen in 40 years and punishing prices at gas pumps and grocery store checkouts. DailyMail.com spoke with householders across the country to find out how they were managing with inflation at 9.1 percent — and the rising cost of cereals, meat, transport and gasoline prices even higher still. A family-of-five in Maryland has canceled pizza parlor outings, a New Jersey couple miss their monthly filet mignon treat and an Idaho family-of-four are planning to rear chickens and are leaving their SUV idling in the driveway. Meanwhile, a California couple vacationed with relatives on the East Coast this year rather than splash out on another trip to Spain. Some blamed the administration of President Joe Biden for runaway inflation. Others pointed to the ebbing coronavirus pandemic, supply chain snarl-ups and fighting in Ukraine scrambling the global economy. With another interest rate hike looming, more than three quarters of Americans are expecting the economic crunch...
    A woman is speaking out to blast a tattoo artist who she claims made her strip off her shirt, made leering comments about her 'tits', and then body-shamed her while he was inking her stomach.  The woman, named Dalina, from Escondido, California, called the incident the 'worst tattoo experience of her life,' and said the artist's behavior resulted in her walking out before the appointment was finished and prompted her to have a panic attack in her car. She explained that she met the tattoo artist while working out in the gym, after he approached her because he noticed her other tattoos. She decided to make an appointment with him to get an ink design on her stomach, but ended up leaving in the middle because he made her so uncomfortable.

    A group of Apple employees have accused the big-tech giant of racism over its push for corporate workers to return to the office, saying that the shift back to an in-person model will make the company 'younger, whiter, [and] more male-dominated.' The employees, organized under the newly-formed group Apple Together, petitioned the company on Friday in an open letter after CEO Tim Cook told staffers that they would need to work from the office one day a week starting on April 11, two days per week after three weeks, and three days per week after May 23.  They wrote that the decision to bring employees back to the office was not motivated by a 'need to commune in person,' as Cook wrote in his letter to staff, but rather was driven by the company's 'fear of the future of work, fear of worker autonomy [and] fear of losing control.' Although Apple will 'likely always find people willing to work here,' the group wrote, the shift back to working in the office will 'change the makeup of [the company's workforce].'   'It...
    The red flatbed trucks began arriving after dawn, men in white hazmat suits unloading sections of green metal caging. Residents peered nervously from windows of tall apartment blocks, as the figures below erected the fencing across the entrances to their skyscrapers, caging them into their homes. This is the Pudong district of Shanghai, deemed a high-risk Covid area in need of what the city authorities call ‘hard isolation’, and where residents say they are being treated like animals. ‘Could we also put fences around the homes of Shanghai leaders?’ asked one, as their photos and videos coursed through Chinese social media, pursued by the Communist Party’s ever-zealous censors. The story is the same in the rest of Shanghai’s districts. One video shows more hazmat-suited workers drilling the doors shut at a restaurant in the city to prevent those inside from leaving. Two elderly men look out in disbelief. Dragged away: Authorities in hazmat suits manhandle a resident in Shanghai Elsewhere, more men-in-white beat a group of residents demanding food, lashing out viciously with long sticks.

    DIMITRI PAYET has revealed that he turned down a transfer to Manchester United and a host of other big clubs to return to Marseille from West Ham. The Hammers recruited the now 35-year-old from Marseille for £10million in 2015. 1Payet has revealed he snubbed a move to Man United plus other big clubs in favour of a return to Marseille for family reasonsCredit: AFP But after a successful few seasons in which he was consecutively voted the club's Player of the Season, the Frenchman left the London Stadium on bad terms. The attacking midfielder went on strike once he decided he wanted to leave the Hammers - causing a bitter fallout with the club's then-manager Slaven Bilic. Payet's petulance paid off and he was flogged back to Marseille for £25m in 2017. But the rebellious 38-cap former France international could've ended up at Man United after his relationship crumbled with West Ham as he claims the Red Devils were eager to sign him.

    Will Smith's fate could be decided tomorrow night at a meeting held by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Board of Governors - where his onstage assault of Chris Rock at Sunday's Oscars is expected to be the main topic.  Disciplinary action could include anything from forcing him to hand back his Oscar to the most severe punishment - suspension from the Academy - which would put Smith among the ranks of Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, who were both expelled for sexual misconduct. A post-Oscars board meeting is always held to discuss the ceremony and address any concerns, but does not usually happen this soon, the Hollywood Reporter learned.  The decision to hold the meeting was made after the Academy met for an emergency call Monday night about the incident and released a statement announcing a launch of a formal review.     'The Academy condemns the actions of Mr. Smith at last night's show. We have officially started a formal review around the incident and will explore further action and consequences in accordance with our Bylaws, Standards of Conduct and California...

    Football star Adrian Peterson has been arrested by police at Los Angeles airport after he attacked his wife on a plane while it was taxiing to the runway, leaving her bruised and forcing the plane to turn around. Peterson, 36 - who played this season for the Seattle Seahawks, until his contract expired in January - was being held on domestic violence charges on Sunday afternoon. His wife of seven years, Ashley Brown, with whom he has two children, remained on the plane after Peterson was taken off and continued her flight to Houston, where they live.

The following morning, he attacked her on a plane while it was taxiing, forcing it to return to the gate. He has been...
    CRISTIANO RONALDO has been very big on attitude this week – maybe he should practice what he preaches. Let’s just say he was not a shining example of what a team needs during this vital encounter in the battle for fourth place and qualification for next season’s Champions League. 6Cristiano Ronaldo once again cut a frustrated figure at time against West Ham He is very big on playing the blame game when things aren’t going well, both on and off the pitch. Take this match against West Ham. It took only four minutes for him to start flapping his arms at 20-year-old Mason Greenwood, a striker who is in much need of a bit of confidence at the moment. His mistake had been to rely on his own instinctive two-footed goalscoring talents by cutting inside and having a shot. It didn’t come off, it was charged down But did it really need Ronaldo flinging his arms out gesticulating that the ball instead should have been passed to him. 6Mason Greenwood drew Ronaldo's frustration when he dared to have a shot...
    New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says forcing people back to work after a five-day COVID-19 quarantine is 'sociopathic' and made the false claim that Omicron is not mild despite science supporting otherwise, as she says she is now recovered from the virus. The Democrat gave an update on Saturday, after it was revealed on Monday, January 10, that she had tested positive for coronavirus. She shared three photos, one showing two positive test results, one of her cuddling up with her dog and a solo shot of her French bulldog Deco. 'Welp, so it happened. Got COVID, probably omicron. As of today I am thankfully recovered and wrapping up quarantine, but COVID was no joke,' she started off the lengthy caption on Saturday. AOC went on to claim that Omicron is not mild, despite the fact that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reported the strain doesn't seem to be as dangerous as the previous Delta variant.   'For a while I've noted the term "mild" is misleading when the bar is hospitalization and death. Even "mild" cases...
    Former Moon Juice employees have alleged that working for the wellness company's founder Amanda Chantal Bacon is far from magical, saying she prioritizes her brand's image over her staffers' well-being.  Since launching Moon Juice as a single juice shop in Los Angeles in 2012, the 38-year-old wellness guru has turned her brand of drink and dusts into an international company with a reported $20 million in annual sales.  A-list fans include Zoë Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, and Gwyneth Paltrow — who famously touted the brand's 'Sex Dust' to her own Goop followers — but when it comes to how the juice gets made, there has been criticism behind the scenes.  In Katie Warren's report published by Insider, Bacon has been accused of everything from pushing back on COVID-19 regulations that went against her shops' aesthetic to requiring her employees to wear all white while blending juices and smoothies.  Moon Juice founder Amanda Chantal Bacon, 38, has been accused of prioritizing her brand's image over her staffers' well-being in a new report published by Insider Bacon launched Moon Juice as a single juice shop...
    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton discussed the state's federal injunction gain against the Biden administration's vaccine and masks mandates on "Fox & Friends Weekend" Sunday, claiming the President doesn't have legal authority to make Americans choose between their health or their jobs. TEXAS A.G. PAXTON WINS INJUNCTION AGAINST BIDEN VACCINE MANDATE FOR FEDERALLY-FUNDED HEALTHCARE WORKERS TEXAS ATTORNEY GENERAL KEN PAXTON: The idea here is the federal government just can't make up laws without Congress passing them, that the Biden administration has to follow the law. They have to follow the Constitution. They're implementers of the law. They can't just make it up…. And in this case, they're forcing American workers to decide between their health and their job. And they just can't do it. It's just wrong. WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEW BELOW: Video This article was written by Fox News staff.
              by Madison Hirneisen   Los Angeles Unified School District will hold off enforcement until the start of the Fall 2022 semester for a vaccine mandate that would have moved thousands of students out of the classroom and into remote learning. The LAUSD’s Board of Education voted Tuesday to suspend enforcement of a vaccine mandate for all students 12 and older until the fall. The original mandate, which passed in September, required students to show proof of full vaccination or obtain an exemption by Jan. 10, 2022, to continue attending in-person classes. Under the initial mandate, those who were not in compliance with the requirement would be required to attend classes remotely at the start of the new semester. But after the council’s Tuesday vote, the district will delay the transfer of non-compliant students to online programs until the fall semester in 2022. As of Tuesday, about 27,000 students were not in compliance with the mandate, and there is not enough time for students to be fully vaccinated at this point before the initial deadline kicks in, according to ABC News.

    Disgraced ex-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo remained defiant amid the order he is facing to return the money he received from the book he wrote touting his leadership during the coronavirus pandemic.  New York state's Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE) voted 12-1 demanding the Democrat to give back the $5.1 million from the release of his memoir "American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic," which was widely panned as an early victory lap of his response to the virus it was still killing thousands of Americans.  ANDREW CUOMO ORDERED TO RETURN MILLIONS FROM PANDEMIC BOOK DEAL FOLLOWING ETHICS PANEL VOTE Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi issued a fiery statement defending his former boss. "This is political hypocrisy and duplicity at its worst," Azzopardi wrote. "Governor Cuomo received a JCOPE opinion and advice of counsel stating that government resources could not be used -- and they weren't -- and any staffer who assisted in this project did so on their own time, which was reflected on their timesheets."  "If Speaker Heastie, Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins, and Governor Hochul's JCOPE appointees have...

    Citi will require all 65,000 of its US staff to be vaccinated by January and is giving any worker that provides proof of vaccination by December 8 a $200 'thank you' bonus.   The announcement came on Thursday in a LinkedIn post by the head of HR. Officials from the bank later confirmed it was part of a move to get everyone back into the office.  Citi had been one of the more relaxed Wall Street firms in its approach to at-home working, citing families and childcare as one of the reasons why it was harder for people to go back.  Now, it seems the bank is instructing everyone to return to the office next year, and that the vaccine mandate is folded into it.  In August, HR boss Sarah Wechter announced that all New York office employees must be vaccinated, and that some employees in other office locations would also have to be vaccinated.  HR boss Sarah Wechter announced the mandate in a LinkedIn post on Thursday  Citi CEO Jane Fraser has not yet commented on the decision  The new...
    Businesses that force employers to get the coronavirus vaccine as a condition of employment should be held liable for adverse reactions, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said Thursday after announcing he is calling the legislature back for a special session to protect people’s jobs and livelihoods from intrusive vaccine mandates. “We will be calling the legislature back for a special session,” DeSantis announced Thursday during a press conference in Pinellas County. Joe Raedle/Getty Images “We want to make sure that individuals in Florida have their livelihoods and their jobs protected, and I think this is something — when we were doing the last legislative session, it would have never occurred to me that we would be in the situation that we are with some of the insanity that’s reigning down right now,” he said, explaining that his administration initially provided some of the strongest coronavirus liability protections for businesses, as that remained a primary concern last year. “We didn’t think businesses should be getting sued over this, and so, we provide probably the strongest COVID liability protection … very early on and...
    Something odd happened on NBC’s TODAY show when an apparent streaker managed to get himself caught on the studio’s background camera feed. The show was coming back from commercials at one point on Monday when Craig Melvin was commenting on a “naked runner.” Sure enough, a man ran by the live feeds behind the anchor desk, and Savannah Guthrie called it out. “What are you doing!?” Melvin yelled. “Get your clothes on” added Hoda Kotb. The situation plunged into disarray and TODAY swiftly went back into commercials. Watch above, via NBC. Have a tip we should know? [email protected]
                        LEBANON, Tennessee – The younger son of 45th President of the United States, Eric Trump, told The Tennessee Star in an exclusive interview after a 9/11 commemoration event in Lebanon, Tennessee on Saturday, that he is not concerned about elections in safe red states because the incompetence of the current administration is “forcing people to come back to us in massive droves.” “Life is a big pendulum, and I do believe that pendulum is going to swing back in our direction,” Trump told The Star. Eric Trump was a featured speaker at the Tennessee Conservative Convention that commemorated 20 years the 9/11 terrorist attack and focused on restoring America through faith, family and freedom, The Star reported. “People want to know what they can do to help,” Trump told The Star; adding, “At the end of the day, people have to get out to vote.” He emphasized, “These mid-term elections are going to be critical.” “The fact that Pelosi and Schumer and these people have the control that they...
    Republicans nationwide are tearing into President Joe Biden on Thursday after he announced he'd use an emergency order to force businesses with 100 or more employees to mandate vaccines or weekly COVID testing. 'Forcing this and coercing people, I don't think is the right decision. I'd imagine that you're gonna see a lot of activity in the courts if they try to do that through an executive action,' Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said during a press conference Thursday. Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs revealed he would try to block the measure in Congress. 'I will be introducing legislation to block this egregious assault on Americans' freedom and liberty,' he wrote on Twitter. 'We must fight against these attempts to force vaccine mandates on the American people.'  Biden on Thursday announced an aggressive new plan to get 100 million employees across the federal government and private sector vaccinated against COVID as the case rate continues to rise due to the Delta variant.  Other Republican governors are also mounting a defense against Biden's aggressive new order.  South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem appeared to threaten...
    A day after the Giants announced Alex Dickerson and Darin Ruf would be reinstated from the injured list following brief rehab assignments with Triple-A Sacramento, another veteran position player joined the River Cats as he targets a return to San Francisco’s lineup. Infielder Tommy La Stella is beginning a rehab assignment Tuesday with Sacramento as he’ll bat second and serve as the designated hitter against the Salt Lake City Bees, the Angels’ Triple-A affiliate. La Stella, who has been out since May 2 with a hamstring strain, will have plenty of time to acclimate to live pitching as he’s not eligible to return from the 60-day injured list until July 2. The left-handed hitting infielder was batting .235 with a .650 OPS when he suffered his injury, but the Giants believed he was on the verge of a breakthrough at the plate and are confident he’ll be a key contributor near the top of the lineup against right-handed pitchers when he returns.

    Former British prime minister Gordon Brown has spoken out on his deep-seated desire to drag the United Kingdom back into the European Union, and related his fear that a free Britain could become a “Singapore of the West”. Gordon Brown, who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom following the fall of Tony Blair from 2007 to 2010, spoke of his views on the situation post-Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union in an online event for the left-leaning, pro-Brussels Guardian newspaper. The 70-year-old expressed his deep regret about Brexit, the paper reported, saying: “I want to rejoin the European Union. I’ll not give up.” The former prime minister claims he is no single-minded idealogue, however, referencing the fact that during his time at the head of             Britain’s government — first as Chancellor of the Exchequer and then as Prime Minister — he had the opportunity to take the country into the ‘Euro’ single currency but did not. “I didn’t support joining the euro because I didn’t think it would work for Britain, it wasn’t because I objected...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Puppies born during the pandemic are growing anxious as their owners start to get back to their pre-COVID schedules. Many people who jumped at the chance to become pet owners during the pandemic are now realizing that their furry friends have separation anxiety issues due to the comfortability of their humans being at home all the time. For Lesley and Chelsea, the decision to get a puppy in early 2020 during the lockdown was a commitment they were excited to make. “It was the beginning of quarantine and I looked at Chelsea one night and I was like, I want a puppy, I’m lonely.” That’s when they welcomed a new addition to their family, an Aussie Doodle named Quinn. “We call her quarantine Quinn.” It was the perfect environment to raise a puppy since both Lesley and Chelsea work from home, but now, restrictions are relaxing and many people are heading back to the office and school. “We’re talking about leaving her one or two hours and if we go back to work-life, we both kind...

    SAMUEL UMTITI rejected a move to Liverpool in January forcing Jurgen Klopp to chase other targets, reports say. The Premier League champions were desperate for defensive reinforcements in the winter window. 1Samuel Umtiti reportedly rejected a move to Liverpool in JanuaryCredit: The Mega Agency According to The Athletic, Liverpool made an approach for Umtiti, but the Frenchman preferred to stay at Barcelona. Umtiti made just 18 appearances last season, missing 16 games through injury. This campaign he has already been ruled out for 15 matches with a knee problem, playing just seven times. But it is understood the centre-back wants to remain at the Nou Camp and fight for his place as he turned down Liverpool. Klopp was in the market for additons at the back with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez still out injured. Joel Matip briefly returned, but picked up an ankle knock which forced him out of Liverpool's 3-1 win at West Ham. Midfielders Jordan Henderson and Fabinho have both been forced to cover at centre-back. Liverpool turned to Ben Davis in a shock...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A dispute between a local school district and its bus company has left families to figure out how to get their kids to class. Sun Coach Lines claims South Allegheny School District owes them tens of thousands of dollars. Just a few days ago the bus company decided to cut ties with the district. RELATED: Bus Company To No Longer Provide Transportation For South Allegheny School District Parents in the South Allegheny School District, like Rachael Grzes, were looking forward to Monday, Feb. 1. “I just went, bought him and everyone’s school shoes and was like ‘oh, I guess we’re not going back to school,’” said Rachael Grzes, a parent. It was supposed to be the first day of in-person instruction for students, but, because of a bus dispute with the district, all students were told their classes would be virtual. The news was sudden and disappointing. “It was a complete shock actually,” said Grzes. The problem? Money. Sun Coach Lines says the district owes them more than $800,000.

    Per a report, the Braves have interest in superstar catcher JT Realmuto and Phillies fans will be furious if he heads to Atlanta.  Wouldn’t this be something? On Thursday morning, a report dropped starting that the Atlanta Braves are now interested in potentially signing standout catcher JT Realmuto. Where in the heck did this come from? While it doesn’t make a ton of sense on the surface, seeing as Atlanta has Travis d’Arnaud, adding a player of Realmuto’s caliber would send a major statement to the rest of the league. Even if they don’t, the fact that they’re showing interest alone is sure to infuriate an NL East rival: Philadelphia. Braves circling on free-agent catcher J.T. Realmuto, according to league sources.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — A team of attorneys instrumental in the Chicago Police consent decree took legal action against the city Wednesday, saying it failed to make critical changes to stop a pattern of unconstitutional raids. In a motion filed in federal court, the attorneys asked a judge to intervene, saying the city never responded to an enforcement action they sent last August in the required 90 days. They also said the city failed to respond to a letter from the Illinois Attorney General (OAG) and a follow-up communication from the attorneys, again asking for a response. “For over five months, the City has ignored multiple requests by the Coalition and OAG to collaborate on a resolution to home raid-related Consent Decree violations,” the attorneys wrote in Wednesday’s filing. “…Given the City’s obfuscation and the on-going violations by CPD officers, the Coalition is left with no option but to seek the intervention of this Court.” View this document on Scribd In their scathing, 14-page enforcement action sent in August, the attorneys said CPD is violating the consent decree through its...
    RIVERSIDE, Calif. (KABC) -- Wild burros have roamed the hills northeast of Riverside for decades. But with new development, and friendly neighbors feeding them, the burros are becoming much more of a nuisance."People are calling because they're damaging their plants and damaging their grass," said Sgt. Kyle Stephens with Riverside County Animal Services. "And they can do a lot of damage."Stephens says their primary tactic when large numbers of burros move into foothill communities, like Highgrove, is to relocate the animals back into nearby Reche Canyon where many of them live.But with between 800 and 1,500 burros wandering the hills, Stephens says they often come back to where there's food and water."We are relocating them back into the mountains, but sometimes weeks or months, they come right back," said Stephens. "Sometimes it's a different herd, but they're right back in the roadways right where we picked them up a week ago."The situation is getting even worse.

Trump has until Dec. 23 to veto the NDAA, which will force House members to reconvene on Dec. 28 to vote on the override. If they are successful in obtaining a two-thirds vote in favor of rejecting Trump’s veto, the Senate will then vote to override on Dec. 29, sources confirmed for Fox News.

    At a Facebook deletion center in Berlin, the agents, who work for a third-party firm, remove illegal hate speech from the social network.Gordon Welters for The New York Times More than 200 Facebook content moderators from across the U.S. and Europe have written an open letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and urged him to let them work from home during the coronavirus pandemic. "We, the undersigned Facebook content moderators and Facebook employees, write to express our dismay at your decision to risk our lives — and the lives of our colleagues and loved ones — to maintain Facebook's profits during the pandemic," reads the letter, which was published Wednesday.

    ROGERS PARK — A beloved Rogers Park Halloween display has closed prematurely after being hit by thieves and vandals earlier this week. Neighbors are hoping to raise enough money to replace the stolen items — and get the “Dead on Damen” display back up in time for Halloween. “Dead on Damen” has taken over most of the east side of the 7500 block of North Damen Avenue for the past eight years. The display has grown each year, with this year’s comprising six unique sections stretching more than 300 feet, said Jessica Bernardi, the Rogers Park resident who spearheads the effort. Thieves have stolen items from the Dead on Damen Halloween display. Courtesy Madeline Oklesen The displays are worthy of a haunted house. Themes this year include a human butcher shop, a “back-alley circus,” a haunted nursery and a voodoo-inspired display. “I love to scare people,” Bernardi said with a laugh. “It’s also a great way to get to know people.” This year’s fun was cut short when someone stole from the display and...
    Only 10 percent of Manhattan's 2millon office workers have returned to their offices - half of what experts were hoping for - and their absence is forcing small businesses that rely on their trade to close permanently.  Unlike in other major cities like L.A. and Dallas, many New York City residents fled permanently in the spring and summer when the city saw its COVID-19 peak. The reasons for fleeing varied between high rent prices and rising crime.  With no reason to come into the office anymore, many did not see the point in paying a premium when the city around them was dying.  Now, despite some companies instructing staff to come back, there remains a gaping hole in the once teaming workforce. It is forcing midtown businesses like clothes stores and cafes, who for years relied on the office workers to stay open, to close their doors permanently.  Across the US, an average of 25 percent of office workers have returned to the office, according to data by real estate firm CBRE. In Dallas, 40 percent have gone back, 32...
