    HOWARD WEBB is to be offered a new deal by MLS in a late bid to fend off a move back to the Premier League. The former top-flight whistler, 57, is in line for a Prem return as refs' chief to replace Professional Game Match Officials Limited boss Mike Riley. 1Howard Webb will be offered a new MLS deal in a bid to try and stop him returning to the Premier LeagueCredit: Getty - Contributor Webb is under contract with Major League Soccer, where he is general manager of the Professional Referee Organisation, until January. SunSport understands Webb is keen for a UK comeback later this year and MLS will not stand in his way.

    Former Gov. Howard Dean (D-VT) said Donald Trump would the easier to beat than other Republicans in the 2024 presidential election because of his debilitating narcissism. Guest-hosting Tuesday’s The Beat on MSNBC, Jason Johnson asked Dean if he thinks the ongoing Jan. 6 committee hearings will influence Trump’s decision on whether to run again. “Do you think any of these charges or potential allegations could influence when he’s going to decide to make an announcement?” Johnson asked. “Or do you think it’s just a done deal that the former president will run again in 2024?” “I don’t think it is a done deal at all,” Dean replied. “And I have no idea what his calculation is. You know, we won in Georgia, particularly, in the Senate because of Trump, because there were a number of Republican women, moderate Republican women in the suburbs who couldn’t stomach voting for this crook and this disgusting person. And they just couldn’t. And that’s happening all over the country every day.” Dean said he hopes Trump runs again because his “acute narcissism” would make...
    VIDEO2:3102:31There's no space for complacency in reducing carbon emissions, says TemasekSpecial Report: Ecosperity Week SINGAPORE — The shift toward plant-based proteins may benefit food security, the chief sustainability officer of Singapore's state investor said Tuesday. Steve Howard of Temasek said around 18% of calories come from livestock, but 80% of agricultural land is used for farm animals. In some markets, 80% of grain is fed to livestock, he told CNBC's "Squawk Box Asia." Those resources can be diverted away from livestock farming if consumption patterns change. "More plant-based protein, more alternative proteins — that can really build in food security," he said. Howard said extreme heat waves are affecting food production in India and estimated that grain stores will only be able to sustain the world for around 73 days, just "a couple of months of food security for the entire world." He said people with lower incomes are especially vulnerable to food price increases. "We have to really focus on diversification," he said. Using modern technology in agriculture will also be good for food security.More from CNBC Climate:Read more...
    PREMIER LEAGUE officials expect boss Mike Riley to be axed by December - paving the way for Howard Webb to take over as refs' chief. SunSport understands a number of top-flight clubs have complained about the standard of officiating and the use of VAR under the 57-year-old's watch. 2Refs' boss Mike Riley is again under fire and could be gone by ChristmasCredit: PA:Press Association 2Howard Webb could land the the top off-the-field job, eight years after his departure as a Premier League refereeCredit: Getty - Contributor That has left some Prem officials believing Riley's tenure with the PGMOL (Professional Game Match Officials) is coming to an end. Riley has been in charge of Prem refs since January 2010. And Webb, who retired from on-field duties in 2014 and then became a performance director at the PGMOL, is the frontrunner to return.

    Howard Stern blasted the Supreme Court over the draft opinion on overturning Roe v. Wade. On Tuesday’s episode of The Howard Stern Show, he said “I got the good news this morning about a women’s right to choose being overturned and I just was livid.” He continued, “This all started because of this fucking Electoral College. I’ve got a real problem with this idea, the concept that the majority of the people in the United States do not get what they want.” “If guys got raped and pregnant, there’d be abortions available on every corner. Every street corner a different clinic that would take care of the problem,” he said. Co-host Robin Quivers added, “They would be as plentiful as porta johns. Just go in, get your abortion, and come out.” Stern continued, “How women would vote for this agenda is beyond me. Who the hell wants to carry a baby that you do not want? And again, the people who carry these babies who don’t want them don’t raise these kids and then we’re stuck with them.” “The people...
    Miami Dolphins standout cornerback Xavien Howard got his money this offseason, and that assured that the team’s strong secondary would remain intact. With the extra $50,691,177 in a restructured five-year deal, Howard’s contract concerns were appeased, ensuring he is locked in to solidify the most important factor that allows the Dolphins defense to play aggressively. With Howard on one side and Byron Jones as the opposite cornerback, the amount of single coverage they play is what lets Miami dial up blitzes as often as it does, including from the safety position. Even when seen giving up catches, it’s often a byproduct of the more challenging situations they’re put in, playing 1-on-1 against skilled receivers without safety help over the top. With Howard and Jones back, along with the young safety duo of Jevon Holland and Brandon Jones, the Dolphins are set with their defensive back grouping. Nickel cornerback Nik Needham signed his restricted free agent tender, which also brings him back as the key third corner and fifth defensive back that sees the field more than ever in today’s NFL....
    Getty Los Angeles Lakers GM Rob Pelinka faces a difficult decision. Barring a miraculous turnaround, all signs point to head coach Frank Vogel being the first person who receives the blame for the Los Angeles Lakers’ disappointing season. If the Lakers opt to fire Vogel this offseason, the next question is what coach the franchise can land to give the team a boost heading into 2022. Jazz head coach Quinn Snyder has been linked to the likely Lakers vacancy, but Bleacher Report’s NBA insider Eric Pincus believes there are a few additional names to watch. One intriguing option is longtime NBA player and current Michigan head coach Juwan Howard given his ties to both Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka and superstar LeBron James. “There’s one other name to throw out, but I know that he’s got a couple kids in his program, but Juwan Howard who had, obviously, an incident in Michigan and then redeemed himself a little bit with a nice tournament run,” Pelinka noted during the March 29, 2022 episode of the FnA Podcast. “…I...

    Six people were identified by the FBI as persons of interest Wednesday in relation to the spate of bomb threats made against multiple Historically Black Colleges and Universities, according to NBC News. Names of the six were not released because they were said to be minors. Citing a senior law enforcement source, NBC News reported that federal authorities described the juveniles as “savvy” and able to mask the source of their threats with complex technology. The senior law enforcement official told NBC that the string of threats was likely racially motivated. Nearly 20 HBCUs went into lockdown and had increased security presence after receiving bomb threats on Tuesday, the first day of Black History Month.

    Ben Affleck has said he felt 'trapped' in his marriage to Jennifer Garner and believes he would not have got sober if he had stayed in the relationship. The Good Will Hunting star made the comment Tuesday during an interview on The Howard Stern Show where he also admitted to having hesitation over rekindling his relationship with ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez, due to all the intense interest there is in the celebrity couple. Talking about his marriage to Garner, the 49-year-old told Howard: 'We probably would've ended up at each other's throats. I probably still would've been drinking.' Ben went to rehab for alcoholism in 2018. He officially split with his ex-wife in June 2015, one day after their 10-year anniversary.  'Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped,' he went on. 'I was like, "I can't leave because of my kids, but I'm not happy, what do I do?" And what I did was [I] drank a bottle of scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.' Tough: Ben Affleck says he...
    Getty Dwight Howard, left, of the Lakers Credit Lakers coach Frank Vogel with one thing: He’s trying. As much as Vogel has taken criticism here in the early NBA season for the Lakers’ overall failures, the coach has spent the first 22 games doing some nonstop tinkering, trying different player combinations to see what works best. And while fans always want more, Vogel has already taken a bold step that could cause some controversy within the team—he’s angled to remove big man Dwight Howard from the rotation altogether. That was pointed out by ESPN’s Lakers beat reporter Dave McMenamin on the Lowe Post podcast with Zach Lowe. Vogel has stuck with center DeAndre Jordan, mostly, in the starting five, but increasingly he seems amenable to going with only one center over the course of a game. That’s Jordan, which means Howard will sit, as he did on Sunday against Detroit.

    Getty Dwight Howard with Anthony Davis. The Los Angeles Lakers are finally in the win column this season with a 121-118 over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still issues. We just recently saw tempers flare when Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard got into a physical altercation during the game against the Phoenix Suns. It’s never a good sign when two teammates are getting physical in the middle of a game. The two have both expressed that the beef is squashed but it’s hard to know for sure if all the animosity is gone. If it’s not and the two continue to have issues, it’s a battle that Davis will win. Stephen A. Smith discussed the fight on ESPN’s First Take and put Howard on notice. “You’re Dwight Howard. I like Dwight Howard. Look at me right now Dwight Howard. I would strongly advise you not to get on the nerves of Anthony Davis,” Smith said in a direct address to Howard. “You are lucky to be in this league. Now I think he...
    Long-time radio host and media personality Howard Stern laughed as he mocked a string of right-wing radio hosts who died of Covid after publicly stating their opposition to forced vaccine and mask mandates.  On Tuesday's edition of Sirius XM's The Howard Stern Show, the host took pleasure in mocking several late radio hosts with whom he disagreed, as he made the case for a mandatory vaccination program.  'It's really funny when these radio, the radio guys are the best, they're like four of them died, four of them were like ranting on the air,' he cackled. 'They will not get vaccinated. They were they were on fire, these guys, it was like day after day, they were all dying and then their dying words are ''I wish I had been more into the vaccine. I wish I had taken it.''  Stern went on to deride Marc Bernier, a conservative radio host on Daytona Talk radio, who died on August 29 due to Covid, and played a clip of him saying he did not want to get the vaccine before continuing...
    ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (WJZ) — The Howard County Public Schools System’s health deficit fund will be eliminated this year, which is two years ahead of schedule, according to a joint statement from the system and County Executive Calvin Ball’s office. “This deficit has significantly constrained our operating budget for several years and limited our ability to adequately fund several priorities,” said Superintendent Martirano. “Eliminating the deficit became an immediate top priority for me and Board of Education members.

    Outraged students have called for Bill Cosby's former co-star to be ousted from her position as dean at a top university for tweeting her support to him. The hashtag 'ByePhilicia' began trending after Phylicia Rashad - who played Cosby's wife Clair Huxtable in The Cosby Show between 1984 and 1992 - tweeted: 'FINALLY! A terrible wrong is being righted - a miscarriage of justice is corrected.' Rashad, 73, also shared her thoughts on Instagram, after Cosby was freed three years into a 10 year sentence when his conviction for indecent assault was overturned. Her support prompted outrage among students and alumni at Howard University in Washington DC, where Rashad has worked as its dean of College of Fine Arts since May. Former student, Andrew Addison, said Rashad's words showed she was unfit for her position, and called on Howard to 'do the right thing and rectify the situation.' Another alumnus, Nylah Burton shared Rashad's tweet, and wrote: 'So proud to be from Howard University! Look at our role models! Defending serial rapists, warms the heart, it really does.'

    The viral YouTube video Charlie Bit Me which sold for £536,000 as a non-fungible token (NFT) will not be removed from the streaming service, according to the father of the now-famous children in the clip. Howard Davies-Carr uploaded a heartwarming 55-second video to YouTube back in May 2007 of his two sons, three-year-old Harry and one-year-old Charlie which showed the baby biting the finger of his brother. The clip helped to launch the concept of the viral video and is one of the most viewed films of all time, seen by 884 million people and counting. On Saturday the video was auctioned as an NFT and sold for about £536,000 ($761,000), propelling fears that it would then be deleted from the Internet forever.

    Getty Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid shoots past James Johnson of the New Orleans Pelicans. On Thursday, the Philadelphia 76ers had a golden opportunity to clinch the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a win over the Miami Heat. Unfortunately, it was the first time in weeks that the Sixers were forced to contend with a good team at full strength and it showed. Instead of securing top honors, Philly was temporarily put back in the mud by one of the Association’s hottest squads, losing to Jimmy Butler and Co. 106-94. It was a disappointing result given the team’s lofty ambitions and the playoff-like atmosphere in the game. And the Sixers have been afforded precious little time to lick their wounds in the wake of the setback. A Friday-night bout with the Orlando Magic — the first of a back-to-back home series with the club — looms; a game in which the Sixers will be expected to prevail. However, the quick turnaround, some lingering bumps and bruises and key absences could make life harder on Philly as...

    Money is tight, but body cameras for police in Howard County, Maryland, have been prioritized, which is why funding for the cameras will be included in the 2022 budget proposal. “It is of critical importance that every member of every one of our communities not only is safe, but feels safe,” County Executive Calvin Ball said. “Prioritizing public safety and reinforcing public trust remains a priority.” Full funding to launch the program is included in the proposed budget. Ball said his proposal allocates between $3.2 million and approximately $3.3 million for implementation of the program, which would include Howard County police, the Sheriff’s Office and staffing adjustments needed within the State’s Attorney’s Office. The police department would hire 10 people — three officers and seven civilians — and the State’s Attorney’s Office would add 13 new positions. The Sheriff’s Office would receive cameras for 70 deputies. A body-worn camera pilot program first was announced in Howard County in July 2017.

              Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is seeking another prosecutor to assume the case due to her predecessor’s conduct. Willis requested removal of her office from prosecuting former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe in a letter to Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She is also requesting to reassign another case involving six Atlanta Police Department Officers alleged to have used excessive force. According to Willis, the county’s previous district attorney, Paul Howard, reportedly used video evidence from Brooks’ case in a campaign ad. Willis claimed that the act may have violated Georgia Bar Rule 3.8(g) by not “refraining from making extrajudicial comments that have a substantial likelihood of heightening public condemnation of the accused.” Carr may opt to assign both cases to another district attorney. However, a district attorney could also opt to turn down either case. That would leave Carr with the difficult choice of either taking on the case himself or having Willis continue on it. Spokespersons with the district attorney’s office didn’t respond to request for...

    Ben Simmons is one of the best young players in the NBA. The Australian was the number one pick in the 2016 NBA Draft for the Philadelphia 76ers. But he got injured his first season and didn’t play for the entirety of the first year. In his second year, Simmons completely took over. He played an amazing season and won the 2018 Rookie of the Year award. Simmons is a fantastic scorer and passer. However, the one criticism levied on Simmons is his inability to shoot the ball.

    Radio legend Howard Stern urged Ellen DeGeneres to cut her cutesy image and “just be a prick” following allegations that she oversaw a toxic work environment on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.  Stern made the comments after an investigation by BuzzFeed News claimed employees of the show had been subject to a toxic work environment of racism, sexual harassment, and bullying. Some employees even accused DeGeneres of overseeing such an environment, damaging  her friendly image. Speaking on his Monday morning SiriusXM program, Stern suggested DeGeneres should embrace a new, nastier image. “You know what I’d do if I was Ellen?” he said. “I would change my whole image. I’d go on the air and be a son of a bitch… people would come on and (I would) go, ‘Fuck you.’ Just be a prick.” The pair have a contentious history with one another. In 2010, Stern launched a foul-mouthed rant against DeGeneres following reports that she had to quit her role on American Idol judge amid speculation Stern would be joining the show.

I’m going to show you exactly. … I’m known on the air as a p—k, but off the air, I’m known as a great guy, you know, for the most part.” Stern, 65, and DeGeneres, 62, have been friends for some time — he even remarried his wife Beth on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2019 — and he made his “rebranding” suggestion with the caveat that he thinks DeGeneres should try and work things out with her staff first. Stern, who mentioned that he’s been working from his Hamptons home during the pandemic, said that he counts among his staffers a writer who’s...
    DENVER (CBS4) — A homeless advocacy group counted 80 tents in the encampment near Morey Middle School on Monday. After the outreach, there are about 40 tents left. This was not a sweep, like the one that occurred in Lincoln Park last week, but the city says there are plans to clear the encampment. (credit: CBS) “They don’t know that sweeps coming for sure, which is why many residents are staying put and saying they have a right to be here. The city has given them no warning about when they are supposed to be kicked out of the encampment,” said Terese Howard, a spokeswoman for Denver Homeless Out Loud, an advocacy group offering services at the encampment Monday. Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said last week he couldn’t share more details about the outreach with the public. He said people who want to escalate the situation are being tipped off. Mental health workers, outreach workers and homeless service providers were at the encampment for hours. The city says members of the nonprofit trying to set up a managed campsite were...
    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A judge has denied a request for a separate trial by a man accused of killing the husband of his co-defendent near Bismarck last winter. South Central District Judge Douglas Bahr ruled Earl Howard, 42, and Nikkisue Entzel, 39, will be tried together on accusations that they plotted Chad Entzel’s death in an apparent love triangle and with plans to cash in on a life insurance policy. An attorney for Earl Howard argued at an earlier hearing in Burleigh County that the criminal background of his client and Nikkisue Entzel are different and that trying them together would be unfair and could lead to a mistrial. Howard is charged with murder, arson and three conspiracy counts in the death of Chad Entzel, whose body was found Jan. 2 after a house fire northeast of Bismarck. An autopsy showed Entzel died of gunshot wounds, the Bismarck Tribune reported. Nikkisue Entzel is charged with three counts of conspiracy. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz  called on the press to pressure presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to "answer questions," saying it's his responsibility as a candidate and that "playing it safe" could backfire. "Many Democrats seem convinced that while it's a great strategy for [Biden] not to talk to the press, the press, by the way, should be pressuring the former vice president to answer questions because that's part of the responsibility of a presidential candidate," Kurtz said on "Bill Hemmer Reports." OBAMA HELPS BIDEN SET FUNDRAISING RECORD Kurtz advised Biden not to commit to the strategy, saying that while many criticize President Trump, he is taking questions. He noted that Biden may reconsider it if his polling takes a hit. "Look, not just as a journalist, but as an American, I think that Biden shouldn't adopt this posture, that I'm just going to do the canned speeches, teleprompter speeches, so forth," Kurtz said. "President Trump, like him or don't like him, he is out there doing interviews, talking to reporters. He's got the daily briefings now all...
    If Elon Musk's Neuralink brain implant succeeds, the word 'headphones' may have a whole new meaning.  In a Twitter exchange with computer scientist, Austin Howard, Musk, who funds a project called Neuralink that is developing a brain-implanted computer, said that the company's device will eventually be able to stream music directly into one's brain. 'If we implement neuralink - can we listen to music directly from our chips? Great feature,' Howard posted in a tweet on Sunday to which Musk replied simply, 'Yes.'

    Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz, host of "MediaBuzz," said many in the media appear emboldened by President Trump slipping in recent polls and are not even trying to mask their personal views. On Monday's "Daily Briefing," Kurtz pointed to headlines like "Trump's push to amplify racism unnerves Republicans" and a reference to the president's Independence Day speech as "a call to arms for Red America vs. Blue America," as examples. "President Trump knew full well that his fiery rhetoric would spark media explosion, but most of the media are acting so shocked and horrified and appalled that they have kind of given up any pretense of fairness and essentially are calling the president a racist," he said. "The Washington Post: Trump’s push to amplify racism unnerves his Republicans; CNN: Unadulterated call to arms for red America against blue America – I think many pundits believed this all along but they are emboldened now because they looked at the polls and they decided President Trump is going to lose." During his address, Trump called out part of the media for "falsely and consistently label[ing] their opponents as racists, [and] condemning patriotic citizens who offer a clear and truthful defense of American unity."

    Frustrated police officers in Georgia are claiming that state and local rules have subjected them to a dangerous double standard when it comes to using Tasers -- one that could put their lives on the line and their careers in jeopardy. Atlanta police union representative Ken Allen earlier this month told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that if Tasers are used by the police, they are often considered a weapon, but if a Taser is used by a suspect against a police officer, it isn't viewed as a threat. DA WHO CHARGED OFFICER WITH FELONY MURDER IN BROOKS SHOOTING IS IN TIGHT RUNOFF ELECTION On Wednesday, Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard Jr. charged former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe with felony murder, aggravated assault and other offenses in the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks.

    The ex-Atlanta cop who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks will be charged with felony murder, prosecutors announced Wednesday. Garrett Rolfe, 27, who was fired Saturday after shooting Brooks twice in the back during a scuffle outside a Wendy’s restaurant, will face 11 charges in all — including aggravated assault, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said at a press conference. Meanwhile, a second officer at the scene, Devin Brosnan, 26, is now cooperating with police in the investigation, Howard said. “We have decided to issue warrants in this case today,” Howard said as he opened the press conference. Howard said investigators interviewed 10 witnesses and reviewed various videos of the incident, as well as the cops’ two Tasers. Among prosecutors considerations was that “we noted from our evaluation was that Mr. Brooks on the night of the incident was calm, was cordial, and really displayed a cooperative nature” during the initial encounter, Howard said. The two cops also did not check on Brooks for more than 2 minutes, while Rolfe at one point kicked him while he lay dying and...
