    (CNN)Until a few weeks ago, it looked as though the conflict in Ukraine would head into the bitter winter months frozen in place -- with neither side making appreciable progress. That prognosis has changed with the sudden and successful Ukrainian offensive through most of occupied Kharkiv, which has galvanized Ukraine's Western backers as much as it has led to recriminations in Moscow. The Russian military must now ask itself what sort of force, and where exactly they are deployed, can regain the initiative after Ukraine captured more territory in one week than Russian forces had in five months. There are important political dynamics involved too. The Kremlin faces tough choices: whether to declare a general mobilization to reinvigorate its increasingly ragged units in Ukraine and how to manage a budget deficit -- even though it's sitting on historically high foreign reserves. Far beyond the theater of war, Russia must choose how far to weaponize its influence over Europe's gas supply, as governments prepare to spend big to mitigate the effects of exceptionally tight supply.

    Cecilie Arcurs | Getty Images There's about one month until the Oct. 17 tax deadline extension, and experts say filers need to prepare, especially for more complicated returns. An estimated all-time high of 19 million American taxpayers filed an extension for their 2021 returns, according to the IRS. Kevin Brady, a certified financial planner and vice president of Wealthspire Advisors in New York, said tax professionals have faced many challenges, including deadline changes and new Covid-19-related legislation. "When you combine those facts with the understaffing in tax prep and accounting firms and usual tax code complexity, filing for an extension has become more of a necessity," he said.

    THE deadline for missed child tax credits is ending in less than a month – but there is still time to receive up to $3,600 for each child. Americans are set to get a full sum payment if they claim the credits on their IRS tax forms by April 18 as families are warned not to miss the boat. 1Families could still received a full down payment of up to $3,600 for each child when filing their IRS tax returnsCredit: Alamy The child tax credit was temporarily expanded under President Joe Biden's American Rescue Act in 2021 to $3,600 from $2,000.

    THE deadline for Americans to file taxes to get their return is April 18, and the IRS is encouraging people to have all their information on hand to file correctly. The organization recommends filing electronically with a direct deposit and avoiding a paper return to ensure there are no processing delays. 1Tax deadline is April 18Credit: Getty Those who file electronically are expected to get their refund within 21 days. "[It] is more important than ever this year," said the IRS. This is in part due to the fact that many Americans received child tax credits and stimulus checks this tax season.

    THE deadline to file your tax returns is Monday, April 18, 2022. However, some taxpayers might not be able to meet the deadline due to multiple reasons. Some people might be waiting on important documents to submit with their returns and others might have to track down receipts. 2You can get an extension to file your tax return if you're unable to meet the deadline, however, you must still make the payment on the tax you owe  Because of this, the IRS is allowing a six-month tax extension for anyone who needs it. This will make the new deadline for some people Monday, October 17, 2022. However, it’s important to know that a tax extension only gives you more time to file your tax return, not more time to pay a balance that you owe. That payment is still due on the regular April tax deadline. To get the extension, you must fill out IRS Form 4868, the Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File US Individual Income Tax Return. After the form is filled out, it must bed...

    BRITS have limited time to get their booster jab if they want the maximum amount of protection on Christmas Day, the Government says. The big day is one month away and families are bound to get together for a blowout after having to spend last year apart under lockdown rules. 1Get your booster ASAP for a safe ChristmasCredit: Alamy There are no current plans to put a cap on Christmas celebrations.

    (CNN)The Alisal Fire, which has exploded in size over the past four days, is approaching the Santa Barbara ranch once owned by President Ronald Reagan."We've had fires that have threatened the ranch before, mostly Sherpa in 2016, but this is by far the biggest threat we've faced and biggest threat since the 1955 Refugio Fire," Ranch Director Andrew Coffin told CNN affiliate KEYT.

Local officials said Tuesday that the fire was "several miles" away from the ranch -- but by Thursday, the fire was between a quarter mile and a half mile in distance, the affiliate reported.

    On August 16 — less than one month from now — the U.S. Census Bureau is scheduled to release data from the 2020 U.S. Census to individual states, which will allow state governments to move forward with redistricting. That redistricting in states where Republicans control state legislatures is likely to include hyper-partisan gerrymandering designed to make it harder for Democrats to win U.S. House of Representatives races. For that reason, journalist Walker Bragman warns in an article published by the Daily Poster this week, Democrats need to find a way to get the For the People Act — a comprehensive voting rights bill — passed as soon as possible. "If Democrats want to have their best shot at preventing Republicans from redrawing red states' congressional districts in a way that could lock in a GOP House majority for a decade," Bragman explains, "they need to tweak and pass the For the People Act, their signature voting rights and democracy reform legislation, before (August 16). The For the People Act would implement a series of rules and procedures designed to...
    Kyle Lowry. Chris O'Meara/AP Images The NBA trade deadline is March 25. Some big names are involved in trade rumors. The short season and tight playoff races could impact who buys and who sells.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The NBA trade deadline is March 25, and some big-name players are rumored to be on the move, or at least available.  This year's trade deadline could be a bit of a guessing game. The shortened season, uncertain financial future of the league in the pandemic, and the tight playoff race may make teams hesitant to buy or sell. On the other hand, the tight playoff race might mean more buyers and sellers than usual — teams might drop out of the playoff race while others could convince themselves they are a player away from contending. With two weeks to go until the deadline, here are the biggest players involved in trade rumors: LaMarcus Aldridge, C LaMarcus Aldridge.
