Harden, a point guard and shooting guard who recently signed a reported $68.6 million two-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, remembers being a 20-year-old rookie in 2009 with a suddenly sizable salary. As a first-round draft pick — third overall — he had just signed a two-year contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder worth $4.76 million, according to Spotrac.com. "You want to buy everything," Harden told CNBC in a phone interview. "And you deserve it, so you buy your first car, your first house or whatnot."

    Grooming-enabler and Never Trump grifter David French compared grooming little kids to an adult appearing in a Playboy video. No, really, he did. The Dispatch writer, whose favorite pastime is explaining to Christians and conservatives why they are not True Christians and conservatives is apparently so desperate to earn a retweet from fellow smug asshole Jake Tapper, so desperate to defend the same political left that butters his Dispatch bread, he’s actually comparing teachers talking to five-year-olds about sex behind their parent’s back with an adult appearing in Playboy. “The slinging of the word ‘groomer,'” French harrumphed on Twitter this week, “or insinuations of sympathy for pedophilia by the same people who spent *years* stan[d]ing for the man who appeared in ‘Playboy Video Centerfold: Playmate 2000 Bernaola Twins’ (and that might be the least worst thing he did) is just too much.” There are more tweets, most of them dedicated to how The Great and Moral David French was once the victim of a petition — because as we all know, a petition involving a grown-ass man is exactly...
    Despite having the highest vaccination rate in the country, Vermont has been dealing with a dramatic increase of COVID-19 cases. Infections have risen by 55 percent over the last two weeks to an average of about 300 per day, according to a recent report from the state's Department of Financial Regulation. Yet 80.9 percent of the state's total population has had at least one dose - second only to Massachusetts - and 71.8 percent are fully vaccinated, higher than anywhere else, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). So why is The Green Mountain State facing its worst Covid surge? Experts say there are a few reasons for this including low vaccination rates among younger people, college students gathering unmasked for Halloween parties, and not enough residents with natural immunity.  Vermont is the most vaccinated state in the nation with 80.9% of the population with one dose and 71.8% fully vaccinated but cases are surging (file image) A new report finds that Covid cases have risen 55% over the last two weeks to an average...
    CARNEYS POINT, N.J. (CBS) — Police are urging people to be on the lookout for a group of armed kids and young adults from Delaware causing chaos in South Jersey. They have hit several areas in Salem County in only the last few weeks.

    Cullen Veasley, 17, receives his second dose of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine at a mobile pop-up vaccination clinic hosted by the Detroit Health Department with the Detroit Public Schools Community District at Renaissance High School in Detroit, Michigan, July 26, 2021.Emily Elconin | Reuters Seventy percent of U.S. adults have had at least one shot of a Covid vaccine, the White House confirmed Monday, about a month behind President Joe Biden's Fourth of July goal. The 70% goal set by Biden in May is seen by federal health officials as a crucial step toward reaching so-called herd immunity — when enough people in a given community have antibodies against a specific disease. While the milestone is a significant achievement for the nation, it should be seen as a floor, rather than a ceiling, especially as the highly contagious delta variant spreads, health experts say. "We need to have at least 80% of the population vaccinated to truly have some form of herd immunity," Dr. Paul Offit, a voting member of the Food and Drug Administration's Vaccines and Related Biological...
    As the federal government continues to face challenges with getting Americans vaccinated, one age group has been particularly harder to convince to get vaccinated: young adults in their 20s. However, there are a few who have opted to take matters into their own hands and get the job done. Slate magazine recently highlignted an array of different accounts from young adults getting vaccinated despite living with anti-vaccination parents. One of the young adults featured was only identified as Ariel, a young adult living at home with her parents while on break from college for the summer. Since her parents reportedly believe that the COVID-19 vaccine is "a way for the government to control the population by reducing fertility, her parents are completely against taking the jab. However, Ariel held different beliefs about the vaccine. So she opted to get the series of shots in secret. "I almost was caught," she recalled. "Getting the shot took quite some time and adding on the time to groceries made my trip seem extremely long." Ariel admitted that she did manage...
    By Madeline Holcombe | CNN Health officials are pouring their effort into convincing those still hesitant to get vaccinated against Covid-19, but none of the strategies appear to be a “Hail Mary pass” to get the US to reach President Joe Biden’s vaccination goal and curb spreading variants. “I just don’t know if there’s something out there that we’re not doing that for sure will get us over the score line,” Dr. Marcus Plescia, the chief medical officer at the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, told CNN. “That’s the problem — we’re doing all the things that we know can be effective, but it’s just allowing us to maintain this steady state, when what we really need to do is bump the demand back up.” Biden set a goal earlier this year for 70% of American adults to have received at least one dose of vaccine by July 4. Although the country is getting close, with 65.4% of adults having received at least one dose, demand and vaccination rates have declined, leaving experts to worry if enough of...
    COVID cases are “increasing exponentially”, according to a major study. Scientists say it’s not clear when the growth will slow down, and if this will be before the July 19 lockdown lift. ????

The shading and lines represent the variation in estimates, but the graph generally shows an upward trend 8The surge in cases, driven by the Delta variant, comes as people have more freedoms to socialise. Pictured: Nottingam football fans on June 13Credit: SWNS It comes at a time when the Government are racing to get all those over 18 vaccinated before July 19 - the new "terminus Freedom Day" date. But it is uncertain what state the epidemic will be in by that point, amid spread of the new highly transmissible Delta variant and more freedoms to socialise. The React study, by Imperial College London, took swabs of almost 109,000 people in England who were representative of the population. The results showed that the prevalence...

It was a relatively soft night for broadcast TV overall, with no show gathering even 1 million people who fall in the 18-49 age range. FBI came closest, with its 0.68 rating equivalent to about 880,000 people. NCIS, meanwhile, recorded a 0.6 in adults 18-49, a tenth of a point behind its previous low. It did lead primetime among all viewers, averaging 8.56 million. FBI finished second in viewers with 7.57 million, while FBI: Most Wanted had 5.62 million viewers to go with a 0.57 rating in the 18-49 demo. CBS swept primetime in both measures, as well as among adults 25-54. History’s The Curse of Oak Island had the next best...

On March 9, Alaska became the first state in the country to make coronavirus vaccine shots available to anyone over the age of 16 who lives or works in the state. Alaska Gov.

Mississippi became the second state to open up its vaccine eligibility on March 16 — and a number of other states have since followed suit. This week, West Virginia Gov....

    A recent report found that coronavirus caused two-thirds of the almost 300,000 higher-than-average U.S. deaths this year, per a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  These “excess deaths” include lives lost from any cause, and can give a better idea of the mortality associated with the pandemic, study authors wrote. Deaths counts directly owing to the pandemic are prone to underestimates due to inaccuracies in death certificates or testing shortages, among other limitations, the agency noted. CLICK HERE FOR FULL CORONAVIRUS COVERAGE The CDC compared weekly death data from its National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) from Jan. 26 to Oct. 3, 2020 to 2015-2019, and calculated the percentage change. During the timeframe under study, the CDC identified 299,028 excess deaths in the U.S, which peaked in mid-April and again in the week of Aug. 8. “The largest percentage increases were seen among adults aged 25–44 years (at 26.5%) and among Hispanic or Latino (Hispanic) persons (at 53.6%),” study authors wrote, adding that the disproportionate toll among minorities is in line with previous findings.

    PLANO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A group of students in Plano are coming to the rescue of others across North Texas who they worry will struggle with online learning. Four Plano West Senior High School juniors have created a new service called TutorScope. It offers free online tutoring to students who need help from ten tutors who happen to be current high school students themselves. “There’s a lot of things that you miss that you could be getting with live teaching especially for students that don’t have a lot of resources,” says Charvi Goyal, TutorScope President. “Most of our students are in the first grade to the fifth grade range.” The 15-minute online sessions are free and so far more than 200 students have used it. The teenage brains behind TutorScope believe they offer something adults can’t. “A lot of students feel like they can be intimidated when talking to adults but what we’ve seen so far with students teaching students is it creates a really positive learning experience since students and tutors can relate a lot more to another,” says...
    DUNDALK, MD. (WJZ) — Baltimore County Police arrested two adults and four juveniles in connection with Monday’s auto thefts and burglaries in Baltimore County and the city. A 911 call for eight or nine suspicious subjects and vehicles in Dundalk just before 3 a.m. racing around the area of Oakwood Road, 21222. As officers arrived, those subjects fled in vehicles and on foot, all at first evading the officers. One officer was able to catch up with one of the fleeing vehicles, however, but the driver and passenger had fled from the car on foot, escaping. The officer determined the car they left behind had been stolen in a robbery in Baltimore City earlier Monday morning. Other vehicles that were left behind at the scene by some of the suspects who also fled on foot were stolen, police said. Sometime later, 911 got a call for suspicious subjects walking along North Point Road. When officers stopped them, they were found with several sets of car keys that matched the vehicles left behind on Oakwood Road. Around the same time, calls...

An ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday shows that a majority of Americans are against the reopening of schools this fall, even though they are worried about educational gains. Poll results show: 59% of parents say they are concerned their child is falling behind in their education. 44% of adults with school-age kids say they would send their child back to school. 55% of adults say they are against the reopening of public schools with in-person learning this fall. 79% of Republicans say they would send their kids back to school. 22% of Democrats say they support in-person instruction this fall. President Donald Trump has pushed for schools to resume in-person learning. On Wednesday, he told ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl that he is “comfortable” sending his son and grandchildren back school. But after the poll was conducted, Trump shifted his stance and said the governors should decide how schools...
