Carroll acknowledged that he might not have lasted long in Seattle without Wilson, and that the Seahawks’ current three-game losing streak is due in large part to Wilson’s injury. “I’ve been here a long time. And if we didn’t have Russell, I probably wouldn’t have been here a long time. Think of all the magic he’s created through the years,” Carroll said. “One of the winningest quarterbacks in the history of the NFL. And it’ll be really fun when he comes back and plays football again for us this year.” Carroll says the 2-4 Seahawks are going to keep fighting until Wilson returns. “We miss him, and in the mean time we’re going to keep fighting and clawing and doing what we can,” Carroll...

"I know you’ve never faced those choices nor have you ever been pregnant. "But for women out there who have faced those choices this is an incredibly difficult thing." The Supreme Court this week refused to block a Texas law which bans most abortions and heralds the most restrictive measures in the United States. That's increased tensions across the political spectrum on an already divisive issue. Following the SCOTUS decision Biden...
    Survivors of COVID-19 are more likely to have severe symptoms after receiving the first dose of a vaccine when compared to others, a new study finds.  Researchers at Johns Hopkins University gathered data from health care workers at its system in Baltimore, Maryland. They found that people previously infected with COVID-19 were 4.5 times as likely to have severe symptoms from the first dose of the vaccine than others. The team says the findings present a point of interest in the way the vaccine works, and how COVID-19 can change a person's body in the long-term. Researchers found that COVID-19 survivors were 4.5 times more likely to have a severe response to the first dose of a vaccine than those who never had the virus.

    SHE is rebellious, with flowing red locks and a desire to follow her heart at any cost. Sound familiar? No, it is not Sarah Ferguson but the  main character in her new Mills & Boon bodice-ripper Her Heart For A Compass. 5Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, speaks exclusively to The Sun 5Sarah on her engagement to Prince Andrew in 1986Credit: Getty - Contributor Speaking exclusively to The Sun, the Duchess of York tells how the novel gave her a chance to delve into her past and address her younger, troubled self. The 61-year-old said: “I would tell the young Sarah to always be herself, to have belief in herself and to seek help much earlier on when it came to insecurity and issues with mental health and eating disorders. “I wish somebody had taken me in hand and helped me with all that.” Sarah’s new novel is set in Victorian England and follows the rebellious Margaret (which is Fergie’s own middle name) as she is engaged to a haughty earl. She said: “People will spot the parallels between me and...
    Sam Asghari is in good spirits following his fender bender car accident earlier this week.  On Thursday, the 27-year-old took a moment to poke some fun at the paparazzi after they congratulated him on his "engagement" to Britney Spears. The "Toxic" pop star was recently spotted donning a ring on her special finger while on a coffee run. "People don’t know but we’ve been married for about five years and we secretly got married in Hawaii – that’s one of the stories that I don’t know but I see in the newspapers – and we have twins," Asghari, 27, joked to photographers who caught up with the actor and fitness trainer at a Los Angeles car dealership, according to footage obtained by TMZ.  Last month, the couple jetted to Hawaii for a weekend of rest and relaxation after her explosive June 23 hearing, in which Spears expressed her desire to end her "abusive" conservatorship.  BRITNEY SPEARS’ BOYFRIEND SAM ASGHARI SPOTTED BEAMING A DAY AFTER HER BIG WIN IN CONSERVATORSHIP BATTLE "Sam made sure his schedule was clear the week after the...

They explained that disinfectant needs time to sit for it to do its job and should be left to soak for 10 minutes, with many sprays stating so on the label. "So you think you're a clean freak? But here's a hard truth from a professional cleaner. Just because you're using a disinfectant spray does...
    WITH SIX Spice Girl-themed tattoos, 20 boxes of memorabilia, and having seen Mel C gig more than 100 times, Louise Wilks is one of the band’s biggest superfans. The 36-year-old, from Croydon, fell in love with the group’s ‘Girl Power’ ethos aged 11, when she heard Wannabe in 1996 - which is on Thursday celebrating 25 years since its release. 6Lousie Wilks (pictured with Mel C) has been a Spice Girls superfan for 25 yearsCredit: Supplied Over the next two-and-a-half decades, Louise dedicated her spare time to obsession, queuing sometimes for days to see the Spice Girls play, or to get an autograph from Posh, Sporty, Scary, Ginger or Baby.

    (CNN)Carl Nassib's coming out was casual, matter-of-fact and, evidenced by the ebullient smile he wore throughout the video in which he disclosed his sexuality, a release he'd long waited for. The laid-back nature of his announcement belies how exceedingly rare it was for Nassib to come out at all. The Las Vegas Raiders defensive end is now just one of two openly gay active players in the history of the four biggest North American sports leagues (the National Football League, National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball and the National Hockey League). He joins Jason Collins, an NBA veteran who came out in 2013 and retired after the following season. Those leagues have, combined, had nearly four centuries between them and tens of thousands of players. And of all the men who've ever swung a bat, smacked a puck, dodged a tackler or sunk a basket, only a handful have ever come out, typically after they've retired. Carl Nassib is the first active NFL player to come out -- and just the second openly gay active player in the NFL, MLB,...

    HOMEWORK can be a trial to get through with your children, but one sneaky mum decided to take matters into her own hands. The mum-of-three, from Australia, told Kidspot that her primary-aged children are expected to do homework because it’s mandatory, but too much is expected of them. 2The Aussie mum does all of her children's homeworkCredit: Getty - Contributor She says her eldest child has been expected to complete great amounts of homework for four and a half years. But none of her children have actually been doing their homework – she has. The mum believes that there is enough pressure put on children enough at school to do well, that she believes the attitude of schools are too full on for young children. Initially she took her concern to her children’s school, but claimed her concerns weren’t appreciated or listened to, so her children would still have to complete their homework. 2She believes that homework puts unnecessary pressure on primary...

    WHEN it comes to the subject of cheating, TV extra Luke King says there are double standards for men and women. Last month, writer Rachel Foster told Fab Daily that her affair was better than Botox — making her look and feel a decade younger. 6TV extra Luke King says there are double standards for men and women when it comes to the subject of cheatingCredit: Adam Bronkhorst But would a man get away with talking about cheating on a loved one like that? Luke, 42, thinks not. He has been cheated on twice and says the pain has put him off women for life. He explains: “I have zero faith in women. All hope I had of finding a loving, monogamous relationship has vanished thanks to the two women who decided to cheat behind my back. “If a man cheats, he is branded a home-wrecker or a narcissist. “But if a woman strays, it’s a slap on the wrist — and she usually gets away with her reputation still intact. “Why is it that when it comes to having...
    Participants in this year's Boston Marathon will be required to show proof of up to two negative COVID-19 tests before the race, even if they have been vaccinated.  The historic race will also carry a new $25 fee to cover costs associated with preventing the spread of the coronavirus, and organizers have decided to eliminate a staging area where athletes traditionally mingle and stretch before the start of the race. It's not yet clear if the two tests requirement will mean runners will be allowed to run the race without masks.   'With people coming from many places, it's hard to know just exactly what sort of protective measures are available where they are so we'll make every effort to apply the same standard to everybody,' CEO of Boston Athletic Association Thomas Grilk said.  Runners at this year's Boston Marathon race will have to show a negative COVID-19 test before they're allowed to hit the course, even if they've been vaccinated 'The Boston Athletic Association said it is committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure the health and safety...
    Cher has been mocked as a 'white savior' for saying she could have helped prevent the death of George Floyd.  The music icon made the remark in a tweet posted to her 3.9 million followers Friday as she watched the televised murder trial of Derek Chauvin - the cop accused of killing Floyd in Minneapolis last May.  'Was talking With Mom & She Said 'I Watched Trial Of Policeman Who Killed George Floyd,& Cried'. I Said 'Mom,I Know This Is Gonna Sound CRAZY,But.. I Kept Thinking .....Maybe If I'd Been There,...I Could've Helped,' Cher tweeted. The Turn Back Time crooner, 74, was promptly slammed for her sentiment, with critics accusing her of making a tone-dead remark that was insulting to those who had taken the stand to say how they had tried to stop Floyd's death from occurring.   'I love my Cher but oof. That was a little too white savior complex for me. I know she means well and probably doesn't understand but..honey...no,' one wrote.  Cher has been mocked as a 'white savior' for saying she could have...
    Domestic travelers to New York will no longer be required to quarantine if they can provide proof that they've been fully vaccinated within the past 90 days.  Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement at a press conference on Wednesday, his first official briefing on the state's progress with the virus in nearly two weeks.   Cuomo abruptly stopped holding briefings last month after allegations emerged that he had sought to cover up data on COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes. In the past week his troubles have only deepened as three women came forward to accuse him of sexual harassment, prompting the state legislature to strike a deal to revoke his emergency powers on Tuesday. The governor acknowledged the deal at his latest press conference but declined to comment further.  Instead he announced the changes to the travel advisory, which previously required anyone entering New York from a non-contiguous state to quarantine for two weeks or obtain a negative test four days after arrival.  Domestic travelers to New York will no longer be required to quarantine if they can provide proof...

    A MUM claims she and her kids have been "left to rot" in a mould-covered flat for seven months, meaning she's been forced to take time off work for anxiety.

    AMERICA'S top infectious disease expert says it's possible the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will soon advise people to wear two masks. Dr Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has previously endorsed the use of two masks, also known as double-masking - typically with a surgical mask over a cloth one. 5Dr Fauci says we may soon have to wear two masks.Credit: Twitter 5According to Fauci, double-masking "makes sense".Credit: Reuters In an appearance on The Washington Post Live on Tuesday, Fauci was asked by reporter David Ignatius if the public health agency would issue guidance for all Americans to do the same.

But he's not yet eligible for the vaccine because of his age."We are extremely disappointed that Governor Newsom still hasn't announced the people with high risk disabilities will have access to the vaccine soon.

    YOU might be washing your knickers after every wear, but what if we told you that still might not be enough to get them clean. In fact, turns out many of us could be doing it all wrong, and in doing so we're actually spreading poop everywhere. 2 Hygiene experts claim that washing our underwear at 40C could mean they're still filled with pooey bacteriaCredit: Getty - Contributor Hygiene experts claim that for those of us washing our underwear at 40C might will be left with pants still full of faecal bacteria. And if you've been chucking your knickers in with your other clothes - and let's face it, we all do - they might be contaminated with poo particles too. Dr Lisa Ackerley, also known as The Hygiene Doctor, told HuffPost UK that washing at anything under 60C won't kill bacteria. She added: "Don’t put the knickers in with the tea towels on a low wash, because you might have faecal contamination in your knickers and you wouldn’t want that near your kitchen."

    The Pasco Sheriff's Office in Florida has a secret list of over 400 students they believe could 'fall into a life of crime' based on factors like whether they have gotten a D or an F in school and whether they have been abused or disciplined at school.  Both state and federal law protect the records used by the sheriff's office to make the list, comprised of students from Pasco County high and middle schools. Authorities use data from both the Pasco County School District and the Department of Children and Families. Data from the district shows which students are struggling academically, have missed too many classes, or have been disciplined repeatedly at the schools. FDCF data shows which children have been either victims to abuse or witnesses to household violence. Parents of the students are completely unaware of their child's presence on the list, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Children also do not have any indication that they are on the list.

Andy Kindon/Insider The Safari Self-Cleaning Slicker Brush for Cats is made for detangling mats and removing loose fur from the undercoat of long-haired cats. The brush has an easy-press button on the back to retract the pins and clean out hair in a single motion. Brushing a long-haired cat daily with a slicker brush can reduce hairballs and keep their coat shiny and mat-free. Since I found him in my backyard eight years ago, my cat Osito's fluffy black coat has pretty much taken care of itself and we've never needed to see a groomer. Other than a light brushing here and there, his long hair has been blissfully tangle-free. But just this year, with Osito pushing 12 years old, I've begun to discover mats where they never dared to form before, especially in hard to reach places under his arms and on his...
    You have hits and misses when buying new weed. Lately, I've had a lot of misses. The weed itself has been fine, but my reaction to it — slow, groggy and despondent — has not been. Maybe this is a by-product of limiting myself to pre-orders out of ’rona fear and not engaging with budtenders before making my purchase (not that we're allowed to smell before we buy now anyway), or maybe my body is just changing; lord knows the shape of it has. Being the cheapskate that I am, though, an in-store-only sale was the only thing that was going to drag me inside a dispensary. And that's when I thought I'd found my dream strain for curing my weed woes. Initially presented with a lineup of potent OGs and Cookies varieties, I asked the budtender for something that was more on the straight-and-narrow path for daytime use but still flush in the flavor department. She pulled out something from the corner with the name Tangerine Dream. Although she wasn't very enthusiastic while describing it as a...

Danielle Theriault Danielle Theriault and Loverelle Bryne connected through a Facebook group for people who've had coronavirus symptoms for more than 100 days.  The pair discovered they live less than 30 minutes apart, have similar interests, and have eerily similar COVID journeys, both in terms of symptoms and how it's affected their family lives.  Now more than six months after the disease onset, they talk daily, go to the same specialists, and credit each other for making the illness bearable and even helping their marriages.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.   About two months into her battle with COVID-19, Danielle Theriault began to question if the tingling, pain, and brain fog were all in her head.

In a mass email sent on July 17, more than 600,000 Tricare users in the military health system’s East Region were asked to consider donating blood for research based on their supposed status as COVID-19 “survivors,” Military.com reported last week. As noted in the report, “31,000 persons affiliated with the U.S. military have been diagnosed with the coronavirus,” showing a clear error in the mass email. “As a survivor of COVID-19, it’s safe to donate whole blood or blood plasma, and your donation could help other COVID-19 patients,” the email stated. “Your plasma likely has antibodies (or proteins) present that might help fight the coronavirus infection. Currently, there is no cure for COVID-19. However, there is information that suggests plasma from COVID-19 survivors, like you, might help some patients recover more quickly from COVID-19.” One beneficiary posted to Facebook about the email, highlighting that he...
    Insider spoke to a handful of women who are currently pregnant or who have recently given birth who said they'd advise women to wait to get pregnant. There's little data about how COVID-19 could affect an unborn baby — limited studies point to heightened risks of stillbirth and fetal distress in newborns. A New York City-based OB-GYN said she wouldn't advise women to delay pregnancy due to the pandemic. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Ten days into developing the coronavirus in March, when she was 18 weeks pregnant, Jessica Sigal developed a case of pneumonia so severe that every breath she took felt like she was "inhaling glass." As a physical therapist, Sigal is comfortable using a pulse oximeter, and she regularly measured her oxygen saturation levels, carefully monitoring if she needed to go to the hospital But when her oxygen levels dropped to the low 90s and then the high 80s, Sigal started to panic. Values less than 90 are considered low and a lack of oxygen in utero may contribute to some congenital cardiovascular issues....
    Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for three decades and one of the leading experts on pandemics in the U.S. for the last four decades, told U.S. lawmakers on Tuesday that the SARS-CoV-2 has taken him by surprise, particularly in a singular way that helped lead to one of the biggest public-health crisis in a generation. “ ‘I’ve been dealing with viral outbreaks for the last 40 years. I’ve never seen a single virus — that is, one pathogen — have a range where 20% to 40% of the people have no symptoms.’ ” — Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases “I’ve been dealing with viral outbreaks for the last 40 years. I’ve never seen a single virus — that is, one pathogen — have a range where 20% to 40% of the people have no symptoms,” he told a House Committee on Energy and Commerce on the Trump administration's response to the novel coronavirus pandemic on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The World Health Organization...
    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that people in New York City protesting the death of George Floyd should assume they have been exposed to the coronavirus. "If you were at a protest I would assume you're exposed," Cuomo said.  The governor also announced the state is opening COVID-19 testing facilities to all people who were at a protest. He urged protesters to act as if they have been exposed by telling those that they live with, and getting tested. "The protesters themselves could wind up creating a spike," he said, noting that it won't be clear for at least two weeks. Coronavirus tests are available to all protesters. We ask protesters to be responsible. Wear a mask. Get tested. Act as if you may have been exposed.— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) June 4, 2020 At least 52 people died from the coronavirus Wednesday, Cuomo said. The governor stressed that while new cases are still on the decline, that is due to the state's stay-at-home and social distancing orders up until this point. Every region statewide has been allowed to begin reopening...
    Republican Party of Minnesota Chair Jennifer Carnahan is calling for Gov. Tim Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, both Democrats, to resign amid the violet protests sparked by the death of George Floyd while in police custody. “We’ve watched for over a week as our governor of Minnesota and the Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey completely failed all the residents and citizens of Minneapolis and Minnesota,” Carnahan told “Fox & Friends First” on Tuesday, adding that the two have been “playing political games.” She went on to say that “it was unfortunate to see because it took three nights of full chaos, destruction of our city, burning down of a police precinct, rioting of businesses before they did anything and then their actions were very light and still contributed to continued chaos in Minneapolis.” Protests were sparked by the May 25 death of Floyd, the Minneapolis man who died in police custody May 25 after an officer kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes in a moment caught on cellphone video. The officer, Derek Chauvin, was fired from the force and has been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the case. Crowds across the nation...
