This is the absolute hub, isn’t it?” Last night, hundreds of dedicated royal fans were setting up camp near Buckingham Palace to secure prime positions for the funeral procession. Read More On...
    Political organizers and lawmakers have successfully added a total of 10 measures to the November ballot. With the start of early voting less than a month away, Arizonans can expect to see a growing number of campaigns by public policy organizations and special interest groups  vye for the support – or in some cases, rejection – of these proposals. Prop. 128 would allow the state legislature to amend or suspend a voter-approved ballot measure found by the U.S. or Arizona Supreme Court to contain illegal or unconstitutional language. Currently, under the state constitution, legislators are prohibited from repealing a voter-approved measure and can only amend the law if the action furthers the purpose of the law. Other Arizona organizations supporting the proposition include the Arizona Chapter of NAIOP, the Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry, and the Center for Arizona Policy Action (CAPA). Prop. 129 would also affect ballot measures by limiting each initiative to a single subject that is expressly stated in the measure’s title. Arizona State Representative John Kavanaugh (R-Maricopa) shared his support for the measure, which would...
    New COVID-19 booster shots are set to be authorized this week by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and will be available to most Americans before human testing has even been completed. The shots have been modified to target the latest Omicron variant, but won't have finished testing in humans when the FDA makes the decision. Instead, the FDA is relying on data from other sources - like research in mice and older vaccines, the Wall Street Journal reported. 'Real world evidence from the current mRNA Covid-19 vaccines, which have been administered to millions of individuals, show us that the vaccines are safe,' FDA Commissioner Robert Califf said in a tweet last week.  Califf also wrote that the FDA will rely on the totality of the available evidence in making a decision. This includes, clinical trial data from other bivalent mRNA COVID-19 boosters, RWE from current COVID-19 vaccines administered to millions of people, and non-clinical data for the bivalent BA.4/5 vaccines. Clinical trial data, which will be used for the clearance of the vaccines, is similar to what the approach the...

Liz Cheney has set her sights on a new target: keeping “election deniers” out of office, starting with former president Donald Trump. In a wide-ranging interview with ABC’s This Week aired on Sunday morning, Cheney told host Jonathan Karl about her plans to start a political organization tasked with preventing a second Trump presidency and opposing other candidates who support his “Big Lie” about the 2020 election. “I’m going to be very focused on working to ensure that we do everything we can not to elect election deniers,” Cheney said. “And I’m going to work against those people.

    Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) CEO Devin Nunes attempted to write off the idea that Donald Trump is a “divisive” public figure during an interview on a right-leaning British news outlet. Nunes spoke to GB News’ Anne Diamond and Stephen Dixon on Wednesday to discuss Trump’s speech in his first return to Washington D.C. since the end of his presidency. As Nunes hyped up a possible Trump 2024 presidential campaign, Dixon chimed in to note that whatever accomplishments Trump might’ve had as president got buried by the fact that he’s a deeply polarizing politician. “As we observe it over here,” Dixon said, “whatever good things he may have done — and there’s bound to be some — it gets overshadowed by the fact that he has been such a divisive character. Not just the way he is perceived himself, but the way he has divided the United States. He set people against each other.” Asked how that’s “helpful” for America, Nunes claimed to have seen nothing like this from Trump: “I don’t think that is the case,” he said....

    "I've represented the neighborhoods of the 11th CD for years and I love the people who live here. It was gratifying to connect with community and elected leaders while I considered a run. I'm certain a progressive can win this seat and serve us in Washington," de Blasio tweeted. "Back in January, I made a decision to focus on advocating for policies that would continue to drive down income inequality in New York - one of my proudest achievements. I'm going to stick with that decision - it was the right one then and it remains so." In a piece published in the Atlantic earlier this month, de Blasio wrote, "when it comes to being unpopular, I’m unfortunately somewhat of an expert. I made my fair share of mistakes." "I failed to give New Yorkers a clear sense of where I was taking them. I lost my connection with the people because I mistook real policy for real popularity. I let a focus on individual initiatives, no matter how noble or substantive, distract me from offering an overarching vision for...

    By The Associated Press The latest developments on the Russia-Ukraine war: ___ BRUSSELS — The European Union announced late Monday that the 27-nation bloc has approved a fourth set of sanctions to punish Moscow for its invasion of Ukraine. France, which holds the EU presidency, said in a statement that the bloc approved a package targeting “individuals and entities involved in the aggression against Ukraine,” along with sectors of the Russian economy. The exact details of the latest package will be revealed in the EU’s official journal. Since the war started last month, the EU has adopted tough measures targeting Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russia’s financial system and the country’s oligarchs. Last week, the bloc agreed to slap further sanctions on 160 individuals and added new restrictions on the export of maritime navigation and radio communication technology. ___ MADRID — Spain’s prime minister says that authorities in the northeastern city of Barcelona have “immobilized” an 85-meter (279-foot) superyacht valued at 140 million euros ($153 million) while links to a prominent Russian armament tycoon are investigated.

    Alec Baldwin argued that there are only 'two victims' in the on-set shooting that killed Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and claims many of the individuals who have filed lawsuits against him are 'deep pockets litigants'. The actor, addressing the tragedy at the Boulder International Film Festival (BIFF) in Colorado Saturday, said he remains 'hopeful when the facts come out we will not be held criminally responsible' for the shooting.  'From the beginning, from the moment this happened, everybody has put out — besides all the anguish and the suffering, horrible feelings we have and, of course, there are two victims and nobody else is a victim, so to speak — we have dealt with a situation where specific people are not as interested in finding out what really happened,' he told the festival audience, according to CNN video footage of his interview. 'What you have is a certain group of litigants on whatever side, who their attitude is, well, the people who likely seem negligent have enough money. And the people who have money are not negligent, but we're not...

    BEIJING (AP) — Each afternoon, just after the midday rest break, we’d gather in the music room of Fangcaodi Elementary School. The teacher would hand out a song sheet, mimeographed on pulp paper. We’d stand, ramrod straight, and sing Chinese songs with stirring tunes and — no other way to put it — lyrics of Communist propaganda. “We are all crack shots. Every bullet annihilates one enemy.” “We are thankful to dear Chairman Mao for building our beautiful school.” “Worker, farmer, soldier — unite and rise up!” It was the fall of 1979, and I was 11. Three months earlier, I had been sitting in Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, watching the Pirates start a run that would end in a World Series win I would miss. I was a suburban kid who just wanted to hang out with my friends. Suddenly I found myself in the belly of what was still, back home, being called “Red China.” Though I didn’t realize the momentousness of it at first, we were one of the earliest American families to move to China...

"To be clear: these measures are separate from and would be in addition to the swift and severe economic measures we have been preparing in coordination with allies and partners should Russia further invade Ukraine," Psaki wrote in a statement. Psaki added that the Departments of State and Treasury will share additional details of the Biden administration's actions shortly.

    Los Angeles County set another daily record with 45,584 positive COVID-19 tests on Sunday, Jan. 9, continuing a winter surge in transmission driven by the omicron variant of the coronavirus. On Friday, health officials reported a then-record 43,712 new infections, and on Saturday they said the county had seen more than 200,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases over the past 7 days, the highest number in one week since the beginning of the pandemic. The record numbers seem driven in part by increased testing. The county’s rolling average daily rate of people testing positive for the virus was 20.6%, up from 20.4% on Saturday, but down from 22.7% last Monday. Overall, 10,317,000 individuals have been tested, with 18% of people testing positive to date, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. The department also reported an additional 13 deaths associated with the virus Sunday, bringing the county’s cumulative totals to 1,967,443 cases and 27,785 fatalities since the pandemic began. The deaths may reflect an undercount in weekend reporting. The number of  people getting treatment in hospitals for COVID-19-related conditions...

    Processing unwanted Christmas returns has become so expensive for online retailers they're increasingly likely to let customers keep the item and offer a refund too.    According to returns processor Optoro, returning a $50 item costs an average of $33, up 59 percent from 2020, when it cost around $13.53 to do so.  That has led to an increase in the number of retailers telling shoppers' to keep an unwanted gift, rather than return it, because the processing cost wipes out any profit they'll have made.   Optoro's CEO Tobin Moore claims supply chain issues and worker shortages are to blame for the rocketing prices of handling returns.  According to CBRE supply chain, about three in 10 online purchases get returned.    Many big retailers already analyze shoppers they suspect of gaming the system by making too many returns, or buying goods in the hopes of getting to keep them and receive a refund. And attempting to exploit the strained system could result in people being banned from certain sites altogether, experts have warned.   The cost of returning a $50 item to a...
    The morning after one of his team’s most spirit-shaking losses as Minnesota Vikings coach, Leslie Frazier gathered his staff and later his players with a message of reassurance. The previous afternoon — in Week 13 of the 2012 season — the Vikings lost to the Green Bay Packers 23-14 at Lambeau Field. They squandered 210 rushing yards from Adrian Peterson. Quarterback Christian Ponder threw two interceptions and went seven consecutive possessions without a completion. The defense allowed 435 total yards. The Vikings had lost five times in seven games. A 4-1 start was slipping away — quickly. Yet on the first Monday of December, Frazier greeted his team with enthusiasm. “You watch,” he said. “We’re getting ready to take off.” That forecast seemed incongruent with the recent results. But Frazier knew the chemistry that team had. He had seen their resolve and commitment through difficult moments. Frazier knew playoff DNA when he saw it. He won a Super Bowl as a player with the Chicago Bears in 1985 and as an assistant with the Indianapolis Colts...
    Actor Alec Baldwin has posted a video on Instagram days before Christmas to thank his followers and those who have reached out to him in the months following the tragic shooting on the Rust movie set.  Baldwin, 63, uploaded a video on himself speaking directly into the camera on Thursday.   'I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all of the people who sent me such kind words and best wishes and strength and hope and prayers and so forth and thoughts and lots of encouragement and lots of really really great sentiments from so many people,' Baldwin began while standing outside.   "I got hundreds and hundreds of emails from friends, family and colleagues and people I haven't heard from in quite a while to send me strength and good wishes and so forth. I'm really grateful to them. Many people commenting on Instagram seem very very supportive about this difficult situation.'  Alec Baldwin has posted a video on Instagram in which he thanked his supporters for 'kind' messages following shooting on New Mexico film set
    BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s leaders are set to decide on new restrictions to come in after Christmas aimed at slowing the spread of the new omicron variant of COVID-19, but plans so far fall short of a full lockdown. Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Germany’s 16 state governors plan to consult later Tuesday after the government’s new panel of experts called for action to be taken within days and said that nationwide measures are needed, “in particular well-planned and well-communicated contact restrictions.” Officials have said that night clubs likely will be closed regardless of local infection rates, on which closures currently depend. There are likely to be further restrictions on crowds at major events, while new contact restrictions are expected to be introduced for vaccinated people — with gatherings reportedly to be capped at 10 people. Restrictions already in place target mainly the unvaccinated, with proof of vaccination or recovery required to enter nonessential stores among other things. Authorities have scrambled to speed up a booster campaign, with an average of around a million vaccine shots administered per day over...

    Comedian and actor Jeff Garlin has forcefully denied that he was ever fired from the ABC TV series The Goldbergs over inappropriate behavior, and he is also defiant over charges that he makes people uncomfortable on the set of the show. Recently, rumors from unnamed sources claimed that the Curb Your Enthusiasm star was fired for repeatedly making comments that made people working on the series feel uncomfortable. Garlin has starred as Murray Goldberg on the series since its debut in 2013. But in a new interview with Vanity Fair, Garlin shoots down the rumors that he has been fired. The star also said he refuses to change his “process” for acting in the series, despite how people feel about it. Indeed, the whole point of the article is to blast the rumor mill. “No, I was not fired from The Goldbergs. I have not been fired from The Goldbergs,” Garlin said with his first answer to the magazine’s questions. He also said he blames the confrontations on “missed jokes” by staffers or other actors who don’t understand his sense of humor....

    Donald Trump Jr has incurred a torrent of criticism for selling T-shirts mocking the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins after she was accidentally shot by Alec Baldwin on set last week. The T-shirts, which are emblazoned with the words 'guns don't kill people, Alec Baldwin kills people', are being flogged on Trump Jr's website for $27.99. It comes after Baldwin, 63, who has long been an outspoken advocate for gun control in the US, killed the cinematographer when he discharged a prop gun on the set of his new movie 'Rust'.  Trump Jr released the shirts via an Instagram story yesterday, urging his followers to 'get yours now' before posting a photoshopped image of Baldwin wearing the t-shirt.  New York tabloid The Daily News labelled Trump Jr the 'SPAWN OF HATIN' in response to the stunt, as critics slammed the move as 'deplorable' and accused him of doing 'anything to make a buck'.  Donald Trump Jr has incurred a torrent of criticism for selling T-shirts mocking the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins after she was accidentally shot by Alec Baldwin...
    The chief electrician on the New Mexico set of the movie Rust, where on Thursday actor Alec Baldwin shot a prop gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, blamed the armorer, producers, and an atmosphere of “negligence and unprofessionalism” for the tragedy. Serge Svetnoy, the gaffer for Rust, wrote in a long Facebook post on Sunday that he was a friend of Hutchins and that inexperience in the weapons department led to her death. CREW MEMBER: ALEC BALDWIN 'CAREFUL' WITH GUNS BEFORE FATAL SHOOTING “I was standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Halyna during this fatal shot that took her life and injured the director Joel Souza,” Svetnoy wrote. “I was holding her in my arms while she was dying. Her blood was on my hands.” "It’s the fault of negligence and unprofessionalism," he continued. "The negligence from the person who was supposed to check the weapon on the site did not do this; the person who had to announce that the loaded gun was on the site did not do this; the person who should have checked this...
    The sequence of events on set that led to Alec Baldwin accidentally shooting and killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins remains unclear, but industry experts and past, similar tragedies indicate only a handful of options for what may have happened.  The most obvious option now is that the actor accidentally fired a live round, thinking it was a blank, after being handed the weapon by either a prop master or armorer.    After firing the shot, Baldwin was heard saying: 'In all my years, I’ve never been handed a hot gun.' IATSE 44, the biggest union to represent film prop masters, also told its members that she was struck by a live round and not a blank.  How exactly that live round found its way into the gun remains unconfirmed but there are some options.  SQUIB LOAD: Real bullet was lodged in the barrel of the gun when Baldwin fired a blank  One possibility is that an object was stuck in the barrel of the prop gun that Baldwin was using. Known as a squib load, it happens when a cartridge isn't fired...

    POOR old James Nesbitt got a bit of a kicking this week after his production company shut down a filling station so they could film a scene for a new drama series. Naturally, people were jumping up and down and frothing at the mouth, saying they were unable to fill their plant pots and carrier bags with petrol and that he’d been incredibly selfish. 7Expect the next series of Vigil to be filmed on a pedaloCredit: BBC Yeah, but hang on a minute. Have you considered the possibility that James had to film that scene in the petrol station because there was no alternative? Today, there’s a huge demand for very high-quality television. Which is why you’ve got Netflix and Amazon and the BBC and Sky and ITV and Disney and countless others all rushing about trying to keep the schedules filled with stuff we want to watch. And this is causing problems. Last year, when travel abroad was nigh on impossible, I decided to take the Grand Tour to the Outer Hebrides. This seemed like a good idea....
    An unnamed man stands beside his tent in Venice Beach, California, this July. Tents like his were removed for the Independence Day holiday, displacing him and countless other unhoused residents. By Angela Hart, for Kaiser Health News Living unmedicated with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, Eugenia Hunter has a hard time recalling how long she’s been staying in the tent she calls home at the bustling intersection of San Pablo Ave. and Martin Luther King, Jr. Way in Oakland’s hip Uptown neighborhood. Craft coffee shops and weed dispensaries are plentiful here and one-bedroom apartments push $3,000 per month.    “At least the rats aren’t all over me in here,” the 59-year-old Oakland native said on a bright August afternoon, stretching her arm to grab the zipper to her front door. It was hot inside and the stench of wildfire smoke hung in the air. Still, after sleeping on a nearby bench for the better part of a year, she felt safer here, Hunter explained as she rolled a joint she’d use to ease the pain from also living with what she...
