The Duchess of Sussex has spoken to Variety about a wide-range of issues including 'misconceptions' about her since she married her royal husband in 2018.  The Duchess of Sussex has given another major and wide-ranging interview with the US media
    Tulsi Gabbard continued to excoriate the Democratic party yesterday, hitting out at its 'woke ideological leadership' and describing Vice President Kamala Harris as 'a perfect example of everything that is wrong with Washington'. The former Hawaii congresswoman ran as a Democrat in the 2020 election, but retired from politics in 2021 and on Tuesday announced that she was leaving the party, citing the 'cowardly wokeness' of its leadership. She told Fox News and Tucker Carlson: 'I cannot be a member of a party which actively undermines our freedom... Today's Democratic Party is controlled by fanatical ideologues who hate freedom. They despise the Constitution. They actively find ways to undermine our God-given rights, enshrined in the Constitution, like freedom of speech.'  But Gabbard, 41, doubled down on her comments during an interview on Brian Kilmeade's radio show yesterday, pointing to Kamala Harris as one of the main examples of the rot of Washington.  'Kamala Harris is a perfect example of everything that is wrong with Washington and the Democratic party of today,' Gabbard said.  'We had a person running for president who...
    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) further strutted her woke posturing at the Reagan Presidential Library, where she said the world “is really not going that well” under male leadership. As part of the “Time for Choosing” speaker series, Liz Cheney briefly honored former President Ronald Reagan before segueing into a diatribe against former Donald Trump, calling him a “dangerous and irrational man.” Cheney also characterized Republican leadership as being loyal to the former president at the expense of the Constitution. Towards the tail-end of her speech, Cheney celebrated that which gives her the most hope for the future: “young women.” “Young women who seem instinctively to understand the peril of this moment for democracy,” Cheney said. “Young women who know that it will be up to them to save it. And I have been incredibly moved by the young women that I have met and that have come forward to testify in the January 6 committee.” Cheney then praised January 6 witness Cassidy Hutchinson, whose testimony has since been called into serious question by a number of reliable sources that dispute...
    New York Times columnist Jamelle Bouie argues in his Tuesday column that there is a disturbing lack of urgency from what he describes as the "gerontocratic leadership of the Democratic Party" and its response to threats to the American republic. In particular, he cites recent statements from leaders such as President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that overlook the grave threat presented by the Trump-radicalized Republican Party to voting rights, reproductive rights, and a host of other issues. "Earlier this year at the National Prayer Breakfast, to give another example, President Biden praised Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as a 'man of your word' and a 'man of honor,'" he writes. “'Thank you for being my friend,' said Biden to a man who is almost singularly responsible for the destruction of the Senate as a functional lawmaking body and whose chief accomplishment in public life is the creation of a far-right Supreme Court majority that is now poised to roll American jurisprudence back to the 19th century." Bouie notes that many Democratic leaders...
    In a statement, Stefanik senior adviser Alex deGrasse has rejected the idea that Stefanik ever promoted racism. "Any implication or attempt to blame the heinous shooting in Buffalo on the Congresswoman is a new disgusting low for the Left, their Never Trump allies, and the sycophant stenographers in the media," deGrasse said in the statement. "Despite sickening and false reporting, Congresswoman Stefanik has never advocated for any racist position or made a racist statement." pic.twitter.com/o4qeQK6ADx — Elise Stefanik (@Elise Stefanik) 1652700792 Last year, Cheney was kicked out of a House leadership role. The congresswoman was one of the 10 House Republicans to vote in favor of impeaching then-President Donald Trump in the wake of the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot. In May, 2021, the outspoken Trump critic was was ousted from her role as House Republican conference chair. Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York was later selected to fill the slot. Cheney and GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois are the only two Republicans serving on the House select committee tasked with investigating the Jan. 6 episode. The...
    There was once another loathsome Russian dictator called Vladimir – in this case Lenin – who is popularly believed to have said: 'There are decades where nothing happens; there are weeks where decades happen.' He didn't. The real quote is from a letter Karl Marx wrote to Friedrich Engels in 1863, in which the founder of Communism argued that 20 years were 'no more than a day where major developments […] are concerned, though these may be again succeeded by days into which 20 years are compressed'. Since Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine just over three weeks ago, it does feel as if decades have been compressed into days. A great many commentators have rushed to declare this is one of history's great turning points – the end of one epoch, the beginning of another.  Germany's Chancellor Olaf Scholz referred to a 'Zeitenwende' (a 'turning of the times'). 'The world after this,' he declared, 'is no longer the same as the world before.' And in some obvious ways he is undeniably right. With its 'policy for the East'...
    Casting an imposing shadow, General Daniel Morgan strode with confidence and determination beside the rows of blazing campfires at Cowpens — a cow pasture, near present-day Spartanburg, South Carolina.  239 years ago, that freezing night in January was the eve of one of the most decisive battles of the Revolution, one that was won through a combination of leadership and adaptability.  A fearless veteran of numerous military campaigns, Morgan inspired his men through example. Standing a full six feet, which was unusually tall for the time, Morgan didn’t wear many of the trappings of a typical eighteenth-century military officer, and he carried only a simple sword. As a result, the men felt an affinity with Morgan: he was one of them. His personal battle history was etched deeply across his body. On his left cheek, he bore an angry scar from a ball that entered his neck, passed through his mouth, took out most of his rear teeth, and exited his upper lip.  According to legend, on this night—January 16, 1781—one of Morgan’s aides lifted the general’s shirt, exposing the...
    Former Vice President Dick Cheney condemned fellow Republicans on Thursday as he attended a Jan. 6 address by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Asked by ABC News’ Jonathan Karl why he was in attendance, Cheney replied, “It is an important historical event. You can’t overestimate how important it is.” “He told me that he is ‘deeply disappointed in the Republican leadership,'” Karl said of his conversation with Cheney. “And he was specifically talking about how they have handled the events of January 6th and the aftermath, and what he described as a failure to defend the Constitution.” He reportedly added, “It’s not leadership that resembles any of the folks I knew when I was here for 10 years.” Cheney, 80, accompanied his daughter, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), at the event, making them the only Republicans in attendance. He has been mostly absent from the public eye since the end of his eight-year term as vice president in 2009, but his daughter traded barbs with former President Donald Trump through most of his term in the White House, voted to impeach him during his...
    (CNN)Back when he was president, Donald Trump used to tell anyone who would listen how hard he was on Russia."Getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing," Trump said in 2018. "Now maybe we will and maybe we won't. Probably nobody's been tougher on Russia than Donald Trump."That was always a laughable claim. Not only did Russia seek to interfere in the 2016 election to help Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton, but Trump spent much of his presidency deriding that fact as some sort of hoax. Russian President Vladimir Putin could hardly have scripted it any better.Now comes new data from Gallup showing that approval of US leadership is up across the nearly four dozen countries it surveyed -- from a low of 30% in the final year of Trump's presidency to 49% in the first year of the Biden administration.  THE POINT -- NOW ON YOUTUBE!

    Former President Trump will say, 'it's time for real leadership in the White House,' at a rally in Alabama this evening, according to a top ally who said it was a clearest signal yet that he is planning to run for the presidency in 2024. Trump has spent the past week attacking President Biden's handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. And when he appears in front of thousands of fans in Cullman County he is expected to develop those attacks to ask whether Americans can be safe anywhere in the world with Biden in the White House, said the ally who has seen drafts of the speech. 'I'm expecting to hear the president use the line: 'It's time for real leadership in the White House,' he said. 'And even though aides say there is no final announcement, no final decision it still is the clearest indicator that he's likely to run in 2024.'  Former President Trump has been in out of New York - pictured here as he left Trump Tower in Manhattan on Monday - as he...
    (CNN)For House Republicans, their path back to power could rest on the backs of GOP women.After a historic number of Republican women were elected to the House in 2020 — including in some of the most competitive races in the country — the party sees a recipe for electoral success and is now doubling down on that same strategy in the battle for the House next year.What has emerged among party leaders, operatives and outside groups is a two-pronged approach: retain their current Republican women in critical swing seats and recruit additional strong female candidates to run in key battleground districts that they hope to flip next year.And so far, there are signs of that strategy bearing out: A record-breaking number of Republican women have already filed to run for office, while some of the GOP's top fundraisers this year have been freshmen Republican women."There are several roads to taking back the House, but I think one road contains a lot of Republican women on it," said freshman Rep. Young Kim, a California Republican who flipped a blue seat in...
    Guillermo Pereira looks out in the mixed zone of the Country Club. He looks confident, aware of the place and what he says. “I’m at the Olympics and I’m playing very calmly. That makes me happy because it means that everything I’ve done behind has paid off,” he says. When ‘Mito’ talks about what he has done, he does not only refer to the hours on the court, nor the very good results it has obtained since He obtained his official card to compete on the PGA Tour, the most important circuit in world golf. In that phrase of ‘Myth’ a silent work is hidden, but that has been key to playing as it is doing. For some time the golfer began to work with a neuropsychologist.

It is about doing different exercises that measure you, with sensors in the brain and arms. There you can how you react...
    Veteran actress Susan Sarandon joined a protest outside of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's office Monday afternoon, saying at a rally calling for 'Medicare for All' rally that leftists are 'losing hope that you represent us.'  The star of films including Thelma & Louise and Bull Durham, Sarandon wore her hair up with glasses and a T-shirt as she used a megaphone to make her case in front of the first-term lawmaker's office in the Bronx. 'I'm here to say to the 'Squad,' and especially AOC, who, you know did make a lot of promises, that we still have faith in you and we would like to see if you have a better plan than we've been able to see, please share it,' the Oscar-winning actress said according to video obtained by Mediaite. 'If there's a pathway you've got that we're not aware of please share it. Because we're losing hope here that you represent us.'  Susan Sarandon, 74, said AOC made 'a lot of promises,' but that she still has 'faith' in her Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has faced fire...
    The leader of a US Cuban exiles group has slammed claims made by the founder of The 1619 Project branding Cuba as one of the most 'equal' multi-racial countries in the world, as 'ideological Marxist spin.'   Orlando Gutierrez-Boronat ridiculed the words of Nikole Hannah-Jones, who has come under fire after a 2019 podcast in which she claimed the communist country has the 'least inequality' thanks to its socialist government resurfaced. The Havana-born scholar accused the New York Times journalist about 'not caring' about Cuba, claiming she was using the country's 'plight' to promote Marxism instead.  'Her assertion that what she says is "equality" is largely due to socialism is ideological spin. That doesn't reflect the reality of Cuban history,' Miami-based Gutierrez-Boronat told DailyMail.com.   'There is a very simple comparison you can make that shows how wrong this statement by Nikole Hannah-Jones is,' he continued.  'Look at the central committee of the Communist Party for the past 62 years and tell me how many prominent black Cubans have been in that central committee. 'And then look at the republic that existed...
    Porsche to create hypercar company with Bugatti and Croatian electric vehicle maker Rimac Turn Your $50K Salary Into a $1M Retirement Fund LOS ANGELES –   Finally, the two teammates embraced each other instead of arguing again. © Troy Taormina, USA TODAY Sports Suns guard Chris Paul (3) has often offered tough love to center Deandre Ayton (22). The Phoenix Suns had just advanced to their NBA Finals after defeating the Los Angeles Clippers in a decisive Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals. Suns guard Chris Paul also secured the first Finals appearance of his 16-year NBA career. So after Paul had what he called “some heated conversations this season” with Suns third-year center Deandre Ayton, Phoenix’s big man hugged Paul. The reason for the embrace stemmed from two things: The Suns advanced to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1993. In Paul's first season with the Suns, Ayton viewed Paul’s demanding leadership style as  "the best thing that happened to my career.” From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know...

The one thing that I don’t quite get from Gallant’s introductory press conference on Tuesday was when the incoming coach cited the Rangers’ next-game response to Tom Wilson as evidence of the team’s leadership, toughness and ability to compete against the league’s brawniest teams. Yes it was admirable that the Blueshirts didn’t shrivel and turn tail 48 hours later, but I interpreted their reaction as completely disconnected from hockey and that did nothing to address the club’s lack of players with the smash-mouth mentality that is required for success in this NHL playoff era. We’ve been over this before. The Rangers don’t need to add third- and fourth-line enforcers to act as a deterrent to the Wilson’s of the world because that animal doesn’t even...
    Embattled Republican Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) plans to be active in the midterms looking to shift the Republicans toward a “Cheney party,” after disagreeing with the party’s current path as evidenced by her recent removal as House Republican Conference Chair. Cheney, before being ousted as the conference chair, “told associates she doesn’t plan on going anywhere — and plans to run for re-election,” according to Axios. Associates close to Cheney have also told Axios, she “will take her case to the public with speeches and other appearances” and plan a very active role in the midterm elections in order to try and “mold a future Republican Party that looks more like a Cheney party and less like a Trump party.” “Cheney and her team has been intentional about painting the stakes as higher than a squabble about a leadership job, but instead about truth and the future of the Republican Party,” Axios reported. Despite the recent polling showing Cheney with terrible favorable numbers to run for another term, Cheney “will not accede to her colleagues’ desires to please shut up,” and will...
    Davenport, Florida (CNN)House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pointedly declined an opportunity on Tuesday to say whether he believes Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3-ranking House Republican who has been a vocal critic of former President Donald Trump, was a "good fit" for the party's leadership.Asked by Punchbowl News' Jake Sherman whether Cheney, the GOP conference chairwoman and the No. 3 House Republican, was still a "good fit" for the leadership team, McCarthy replied, "That's a question for the conference."McCarthy was speaking to reporters just outside of Orlando at the House Republicans' annual policy retreat. He also took a veiled shot at Cheney for criticizing former President Donald Trump during the retreat."I think from a perspective if you're sitting here at the retreat its focused on policy, focused on the future of bringing America into the next century, and you're talking about something else, you're not being productive," McCarthy said.His response is the latest in a persistent divide between the two House Republican leaders as Cheney has continued to speak out about the need for Republicans to move beyond Trump.

    New York : Weeks of maximum demand for the Real Madrid both in La Liga and in the UEFA Champions League, the season is played and unfortunately for the merengue club they will not be able to count on Sergio Ramos. The captain had a muscle injury that will leave him out of the next matches. “The truth is that I have been a pretty tough few weeks. An intervention is always a sporting and emotional break. Luckily, for a few days now I have been feeling better, but in football as in life, bad luck also plays a role, “he said on his Instagram account. He entered the 86th minute in the victory against Kosovo and stayed in training after the final whistle on the La Cartuja pitch. It was at that moment that he felt the pain. “Yesterday (Wednesday), after the game, I was training on the pitch and I noticed a puncture in my left calf.

Mike Powell/Allsport/Getty Images; Andy Lyons/Getty Images As two of the best players in NBA history, LeBron James and Michael Jordan's leadership styles have been compared. Former Bulls player B.J. Armstrong told Insider that Jordan really was as intense and ruthless on the floor as has been depicted. James is known to be a demanding teammate, but he is also said to go above and beyond to organize team dinners and parties to forge bonds with his teammates.

    Nancy Pelosi said Monday that she isn't concerned with losing her speakership reelection on Sunday, claiming she has it 'wrapped up' despite several Democrats demanding that the party needs new leadership. 'You have a big vote Sunday night for speaker. You think have got that wrapped up?' a reporter on Capitol Hill Monday asked the House Speaker of the January 3 election. 'Yeah, I do,' Pelosi said. 'You have some thin margins this time around,' the reporter pointed out. 'That's fine,' she said, adding she isn't concerned about the coronavirus pandemic impacting her chances at reelection for House leader of her party. In a virtual breakfast with her colleagues earlier this month, Pelosi warned that writing any other name down for House Speaker would 'count [as a vote] for the GOP.' 'We need people to vote with the nominee. That would be me,' she urged.

    Former Hillsong members continue to come forward with allegations against the once-popular megachurch, with some comparing it to a 'cult' where volunteers are allegedly used to perform manual labor and fulfill the personal needs of its leadership.      The non-denominational Christian church, which was recently rocked by revelations that former celebrity pastor Carl Lentz cheated on his wife of 17 years, demanded 'industrial slave labor' from its volunteers, ex-members have claimed.     Hillsong Church was founded in Sydney, Australia in 1983 and has since expanded into a global chain with locations across the US, UK, and other countries.  But former members say the church's alleged 'toxic' work culture appears evident across the board with some sharing horror stories from their experiences as parishioners in Sydney, New Jersey and LA.  DailyMail.com has contacted Hillsong for comment.   Former Hillsong members have spoken out against the megachurch (pictured) which some have compared to a 'cult' Carl Lentz (right) the celebrity magnet of a pastor who brought the global megachurch Hillsong from Australia to the United States was fired last month after cheating...

    The rejection came at a private meeting on Tuesday after House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer presented a resolution calling for the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Missouri Rules Committee Chairman Roy Blunt voted in favor of House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy in blocking the resolution, effectively preventing the opening committee from publicly acknowledging Biden’s presence. Rule Committee Rankings Sen. of Minnesota. Amy Globuchar voted in favor of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Hoyer. “It’s amazing the extent to which Republicans are rejecting the election results and recognizing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as our next president and vice president,” Hoare said in a statement. “Their continued assessment of President Trump’s post – election resentment threatens our democracy and undermines confidence in our electoral system … Republican President – elect Biden and Vice President – Elect Harris will be inaugurated on January 20, despite intense controversy over the matter.” The vote comes as Capitol Hill Republicans have repeatedly refused to recognize Biden as the next president of the...

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) The Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest is compiled by David Nir, Jeff Singer, Stephen Wolf, Carolyn Fiddler, and Matt Booker, with additional contributions from David Jarman, Steve Singiser, Daniel Donner, James Lambert, David Beard, and Arjun Jaikumar. Leading Off ● SC-Sen: Quinnipiac's newest poll of the South Carolina Senate race finds Republican incumbent Lindsey Graham deadlocked 48-48 with Democrat Jaime Harrison, which is the same result that the school found two weeks ago. However, the school also finds Donald Trump dropping from a 51-45 edge in mid-September to 48-47 now. That would be the closest presidential contest in the Palmetto State since 1980, when Ronald Reagan edged out Jimmy Carter 50-48. The state has been reliably red turf through 2016, when Trump carried the state 55-41. Campaign Action It would still be a massive surprise if Joe Biden became the first Democrat to capture South Carolina's electoral votes since Carter in 1976, but a strong showing here would be good news for his party's Senate nominee. Harrison will almost certainly have to win over...
    Former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice said on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In” that President Donald Trump had “refused to understand the world that we live in, the nature of the threats we face.” She cited the coronavirus pandemic. Rice said, “I think American voters who are focussed on our international standing have to be extraordinarily dismayed. Poll after poll shows that our allies don’t trust us, that our confidence and approval of the people is in the gutter. And, yet, more importantly, we are not seeing out of the president the leadership that we need to keep us safe. National security is about keeping the American people safe, and we have lost over 200,000 Americans to COVID-19. The vast majority of whom we have lost in substantial measure because the president of the United States has failed in his leadership. He’s lied to the American people about the virus in its severity, and he has done very little to nothing to have a plan to get ahead of this. We still don’t have testing straight. We still don’t...
    (CNN)President Donald Trump said in March that he didn't consider the coronavirus pandemic a once-in-a-lifetime leadership challenge, even as the country was going through historic shutdowns to fight the spread, according to a new interview shared by veteran journalist Bob Woodward."Was there a moment in all of this, last two months, where you said to yourself -- you know, you're waking up or whatever you're doing and you say, 'Ah, this is the leadership test of a lifetime?' " Woodward asked Trump on March 19, in a new clip aired on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" on Tuesday night. "No," Trump repliedWoodward asked, "No?" "I think it might be, but I don't think that," Trump said. "All I want to do is get it solved. There are many people that said that to me. They said, you're now a wartime President."Read MoreThe comments came more than seven weeks after Trump had been warned by his national security adviser that the virus would be the "biggest national security threat" of his presidency and after multiple interviews in which Trump had told Woodward...

    Since the New York Times published their article on Friday about Russia offering Afghan militants bounties for killing U.S. troops, I have been trying to follow the Trump administration’s response. Initially, it was to claim that the president hadn’t been briefed about the “alleged intelligence.” “The White House statement addressing this issue earlier today, which denied such a briefing occurred, was accurate. The New York Times reporting, and all other subsequent news reports about such an alleged briefing are inaccurate.” (2/2) — Office of the DNI (@ODNIgov) June 28, 2020 Trump added in a tweet that intelligence services didn’t find the information credible, which is why he hadn’t been briefed. Then on Monday, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany repeated that claim, saying that Trump hadn’t been briefed because there are “dissenting opinions” about the veracity of the intelligence. We also know from reports that “the administration discussed several potential responses, but the White House has yet to authorize any step.” What none of these responses denies is that there is intelligence indicating that Russia has offered to pay bounties to Afghan militants for killing U.S. soldiers. As...
    Are Joe Biden and the Democrats poised to win a sweeping victory this fall, repudiating the legacy of Donald Trump and winning control of both houses of Congress for the first time in a decade? Yes, or at least that’s how it looks right now. But don’t let that fool you: They’re still a total mess, internally divided, ideologically rudderless, committed to symbolism over substance and run by a feeble and delusional gerontocracy. Other than that, though, everything’s great. Vote blue no matter who! We won’t get full results from last week’s Democratic primaries in New York and Kentucky for a few more days — welcome to pandemic-era elections! — but a pattern has emerged in 2020 that the high-fiving party regulars who successfully shoved the existentially vague and cipher-like Biden forward as the party’s standard-bearer didn’t see coming. Rep. Eliot Engel, a 30-year incumbent from the Bronx who chairs the House Foreign Relations Committee — and who was endorsed by Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and backed with millions of super PAC dollars — appears to have been conclusively defeated by Jamaal Bowman,...
    President Donald Trump wrote to his Congolese counterpart Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo on the 60th anniversary of the independence of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), recalling the first peaceful transition of power that the country, reports Sunday the Kinshasa press. “This memorable event allows us to reflect on the strength of our bilateral relationship. The peaceful and historic transfer of power that followed the December 2018 elections ushered in a new era of hope. I share your deep commitment to the privileged partnership for peace and prosperity, which says that the United States remains a partner of the DRC as it moves towards a better future under your leadership. The DRC is an important country and all of Central Africa has all to gain from your country’s efforts to promote peace and opportunity, “Trump wrote. He also returned to the main challenges awaiting Félix Tshisekedi. “As 2020, your year of action, continues despite the challenges of a global pandemic and the re-emergence of Ebola, the United States is pleased to support your efforts to protect the rights...
    London (CNN)The United States is in uncharted territory, on an exponential path to becoming a Covid-19 pariah and an unreliable ally to its friends.America's fall in global esteem is turning into an international horror show as the world watches the superpower struggle to match the efforts of many poorer nations to get the coronavirus pandemic under control.Three-and-a-half years of President Donald Trump in office has changed America's international reputation and perhaps its future role in a way that seemed unimaginable when he took the oath of office on the steps on the Lincoln Memorial on January 20, 2017.He set the tone in the drizzle that day: "We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs."Trump's early decisions were deliberate, turbulent and at times seemed giddy.Read MoreThree-and-a-half years after the inauguration of President Trump, America's international reputation has changed beyond belief.Three days after his inauguration, he abandoned the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a potentially lucrative 12-nation Pacific trade deal.

    Patients wait to be evaluated for coronavirus in Beijing, China. (Free Press Photo: EFE) UN Secretary-General António Guterres believes that although the World Health Organization (WHO) may have made mistakes at the beginning of the pandemic, did not try to help China “to hide the reality” and tried to have a good relationship with the Asian country to make sure he cooperated. In an interview published this Saturday June 27 by the Spanish newspaper El País, Guterres also highlights that “the relationship between the US, China and Russia is more dysfunctional than ever” and gives the EU a vital role in avoiding a world order dominated by Washington and Beijing. “We need global leadership because, if not, we cannot respond effectively – he argues – to challenges like those of a pandemic. But unfortunately, where there is power, there is no leadership, and where there is leadership, there is a lack of power. ” The UN secretary-general is convinced that at some point the origin of the pandemic will have to be investigated, how it could spread so...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is once again taking on the federal government over its handling of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As states see spikes in COVID-19 cases throughout the country after reopening economies, New York continues to see cases of the virus dropping dramatically. According to Johns Hopkins University, New York currently has the lowest seven-day average infection rate in the country, after being a hotbed for the virus when the pandemic first came to the United States from China and Europe. While Cuomo held daily COVID-19 briefings daily or more than 100 days when the pandemic first starting spreading, the White House’s coronavirus Task Force held a briefing for the first time in months on Friday, June 26, led by Vice President Mike Pence. “The White House Coronavirus Task Force I think, I don't know what they're going to say, I have no idea, but I think it's been a loss to the American people that they haven't been briefing and they haven't been giving facts,” Cuomo said in a conference call with reporters. “I think what...
    Jets offensive coaches sound giddy about the addition of veteran running back Frank Gore. The team signed the 37-year-old to a one-year, $1.05 million deal in May. Head coach Adam Gase and offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, who both coached Gore in 2018 with the Dolphins, gushed about Gore on Friday. “Oh my gosh, I could go on this one for a long time,” Loggains said when asked about Gore. “When you really get to be around him for a year and watch him work and watch the intensity that he prepares with every day. This guy has the ultimate chip on his shoulder. He still feels like the guy that’s trying to survive and make it one more year.” Gore has played for 15 seasons and is No. 3 on the all-time rushing list. The Jets hope he can team with Le’Veon Bell to give them a better running game than last season when they had the 31st-ranked rushing offense in the league. “The leadership he brings is one of those things you need to see it because...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — President Donald Trump picked a fight over violence in Chicago with Gov. JB Pritzker and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Friday night. President Trump sent a lengthy letter to the two leaders. He singles them out for their “lack of leadership” and how they “fail the people you have sworn to protect.” The president then goes on to offer to help and ends saying, “You continue to put your own political interests ahead of the lives, safety and fortunes of your own citizens.” The mayor responded on twitter saying, “I don’t need leadership lessons from Donald Trump. How about some leadership not steeped in the divide and conquer tactics?” I stand with @GovPritzker in providing for the safety and well-being of our residents. — Mayor Lori Lightfoot (@chicagosmayor) June 27, 2020 Pritzker’s team issued a statement that calls the president a “failure,” the letter a “press stunt,” and says that the president “attempts to politicize tragedy with his predicable and worn out strategy to distract, distract, distract.”
    Donald Trump 'listens' during a teleconference with governors on the COVID-19 crisis. When looking at patients who had survived a critical encounter with COVID-19, a team of British researchers found that almost two-thirds suffered strokes, and just over a quarter were left with damage resulting in dementia. This lede was brought to you as a reminder that the death rate from COVID-19 is far from the whole story. From limb amputations to heart attacks to permanent brain damage, the blood clots caused by infections with the SARS-CoV-2 virus aren’t just occasionally devastating—they are often devastating. Over the last four months as the pandemic has spread around the planet, doctors have gained experience with COVID-19 patients. They’ve learned that ventilated patients have better outcomes when moved to different positions rather than being left on their backs. They’ve learned remdesivir can improve the odds for patients before they’re at the most critical phase, and that common anti-inflammatory steroids can help those who might otherwise have no hope. Experience and familiarity is genuinely improving the odds of patients who are hospitalized with severe or critical cases of...

At the end of the second hour, Carmichael weighed in on Apple CEO Tim Cook’s position for foreign visas which shows his disdain for American workers and favor of cheaper foreign labor. Towards the end of the segment, he identified how the original purpose of Black Lives Matter has been hijacked by militants used as an extension of the Democratic Party. Leahy: Crom, you were saying that Tim Cook has got a little bit of inconsistency going on? Carmichael: Well, he doesn’t have so much inconsistency as he cares only about Apple. Apple is a global company. If the plight of Americans goes down and Apple stock goes up apparently Tim Cook is very happy. And the same thing is true with all these big tech people....

Fourth game after the break and again the French Zinedine Zidane innovated with the lineup, this time with four attackers. Gareth Bale, Vinicius, Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema in a theoretical 4-4-2. The good ones understand each other and the French coach opted for this maxim. Vinicius was the best against Real Sociedad and had to take advantage of his great moment, but the Brazilian occupies the same theoretical position on the field as Hazard, Madrid’s great bet on the summer market. For this, and for the Belgian’s injuries, they had never played together. Until this Wednesday. Manolo Reina saved his team with two good stops...
    The victory of Real Madrid in Anoeta it was not easy, neither in form nor in substance. The 1-2 meant that the 2 goals were reviewed: the first for being a penalty on Vinicius and the second, by a possible hand of Benzema. In addition, with 0-1 on the scoreboard, the Real society scored a great goal by Januzaj from outside the box, but was canceled due to positional offside. It was the second time that VAR favors Madrid this week, after the game against Valencia, where this type of decision was also key. These are the 3 key plays of the VAR that gave Madrid the victory and leadership and that many discuss: Diego Llorente Vinicius lightly touches one of the many boarding schools of the Brazilian yesterday in the San Sebastian area. The referee sees the play from very close and does not hesitate to point out the penalty spot instantly.

    After decades of looking away as America’s supply chains migrated overseas, policymakers are finally facing the reality that dependence on foreign producers has weakened America’s resilience, security, and economy. The COVID-19 pandemic has cast a harsh spotlight on this failure, leaving the nation unacceptably exposed, our capacity depleted, and our essential workers turning to China for equipment. “This pandemic has reaffirmed the importance of keeping vital supply chains at home,” President Donald Trump explained at an April press briefing. “We cannot outsource our independence. We cannot be reliant on foreign nations.” But the effects of offshoring extend well beyond medical shortages during a public health crisis. When factories leave our shores, not only the jobs but also the suppliers, the customers, the expertise, and the innovation go with them. When productivity growth and innovation are needed, they are nowhere to be found. When we lose ground to rival nations, we lack the capacities required to regain the lead. Our contest with China is perhaps the clearest example of how the United States has suffered from offshoring our industrial capacity. America...

And Madrid has reached the top again (he is tied on points with Barcelona, ​​but is a leader for goalaverage) thanks to various factors. To begin...
    Zinedine Zidane seems to answer questions about the referees more than at the level of his own players. His Real Madrid regained the leadership of the Spanish League, displacing Barcelona after defeating Real Sociedad 2-1 on Sunday. It was the third successive victory for the meringues after the break caused by the coronavirus pandemic, but the focus of attention has turned more on questioned refereeing decisions than on the team’s good performance. Zidane declared himself fed up with the situation. “What bothers me is that in the end we only talk about the referees,” said the Madrid coach. “It looks like we haven’t done anything on the field.” The victory in San Sebastián left Madrid at the top of the championship. But the controversy was served by three incidents in which video arbitration intervened to confirm a penalty committed on Vinícius Júnior and Karim Benzema’s goal with an apparent hand for Madrid, in addition to canceling somewhat for Real Sociedad. “This is the referee’s stuff and as always I don’t get involved, he does his job and nothing else,” said...
