    New York (CNN Business)Wall Street is wasting no time getting its employees back into the office — whether they want to be there or not.Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman warned this week he'll be "very disappointed" if workers aren't back by Labor Day. And if they're not? "Then we'll have a different kind of conversation," he said. Goldman Sachs asked its employees to be back at the office by this week. And the Wall Street bank even ordered staffers to divulge whether they've been vaccinated. Morgan Stanley CEO to NYC workers: Be back in the office by September or elseEven more than other industries, Wall Street is clearly in a rush to turn the page on this extended era of virtual work. Executives, employees and those who follow the industry point to a range of factors for this. First, there are the cultural concerns. Zoom calls and Slack messages are no substitute for in-person bonding and training. Others worry about the cybersecurity and risk management vulnerabilities inherent in businesses that conduct billions of dollars of transactions every day.Read MoreAt...
    New York Giants: How Adoree Jackson will actually help the pass-rush in 2021 Alexander Wilson June 17, 2021 Share on facebook Share on twitter Share on reddit Share on email The New York Giants did plenty to bolster their pass rush group this off-season, drafting Azeez Ojulari, Elerson Smith, and signing Ifeadi Odenigbo and Ryan Anderson. Adding four new options to the group should provide sufficient support after the OLB unit suffered serious injuries last season, with Lorenzo Carter and Oshane Ximines going down for the majority of the regular season. The Giants, however, looked at the pass rush as a weakness and supplanted it with resources, but one player they signed will have a direct impact on how efficiently the men in the trenches get after the quarterback. One of the premier signings this off-season was former Tennessee Titan cornerback Adoree Jackson, who signed a three-year, $39 million deal with Big Blue. While the contract might be seen as a bit overzealous, Jackson has the ability to be a lockdown man coverage...

    Bitcoin regained some lost ground to trade above $40,000 on Thursday, a day after a brutal selloff on concerns over tighter regulation in China and unease over the extent of leveraged positions in the cryptocurrency world. The biggest and most popular cryptocurrency rose 13 percent on the day to hold above $40,000, after plunging and rising as much as 30 percent on Wednesday to its lowest since late January.  Smaller rival Ether was up 20 percent at $2,900 at 8.50am ET, after plunging as much as 28 percent the day before, and meme-cryptocurrency Dogecoin had rebounded 55 percent to $0.428258.

    The CEO of an influencer management company who is accused of bullying TikTok stars, forcing them to go on dates and making jibes about their periods is an ultra-private former real estate agent who ironically appears to shun all social media. Amir Ben-Yohanan, 48, had no prior experience of the world of teen influencers before co-founding Clubhouse Media Group (CMG) in January 2020. The father-of-four admitted in a December interview he thought of TikTok as kids 'messing around' and 'looked down on it.' But, after moving to Los Angeles and seeing how 'obsessed' his children were with that world, he decided he wanted to cash in on what he saw as the modern-day 'Gold Rush' or 'Wild West'.   CMG offers young influencers the opportunity to stay rent-free at so-called 'content mansions' in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Europe in exchange for creating branded social media content.  It was co-founded by Ben-Yohanan in early 2020 and launched its first location that March - a huge house in Beverly Hills, dubbed Clubhouse BH, which rents for $42,000 a month - with the help of COO Simon...
    Missouri is one step closer to approving "Rush Limbaugh Day" in the state.  The Missouri House of Representatives voted on Thursday to declare Jan. 12, which is the birthday of the late talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, in honor of the conservative icon, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  The Post-Dispatch reported that the measure must be approved by the state senate "before the end of the legislative session next Friday.

The first three months of the year marked the busiest quarter for overall U.S. initial public offerings since 2000, according to consulting firm EY. Despite the coronavirus pandemic and tensions between the U.S. and China, half of 36 foreign public listings in the U.S. during that time came from companies based in Greater China, EY said. More are coming. About 60 Chinese companies plan to go public in the U.S. this year, Vera Yang, chief China representative for the New York Stock Exchange, said Tuesday.

    By Michael Balsamo and Alan Fram | Associated Press WASHINGTON — The political peril for conservative Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz deepened Friday as the often outlandish Trump-styled provocateur appeared politically isolated amid a federal sex-trafficking investigation. Few Republicans rushed to offer any kind of support to the three-term Florida congressman known for espousing high-volume attacks — sometimes against those in his own party — during his frequent media appearances. Several GOP lawmakers and top aides who requested anonymity to discuss the sensitive situation said Gaetz’s prospects for remaining in Congress were bleak and were complicated in particular by his unpopularity among colleagues in his own party. Federal prosecutors are examining whether Gaetz and a political ally who is facing sex trafficking allegations may have paid underage girls or offered them gifts in exchange for sex, two people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Friday. The scrutiny of Gaetz stemmed from the Justice Department’s probe into the political ally, Joel Greenberg, the people said. Greenberg, a former Florida tax collector, was indicted last year and is accused of...

    A Los Angeles teacher's union leader has blamed 'white wealthy parents' for the push to reopen schools in the area after California Gov Gavin Newsom revealed the state had reached a deal to fund getting children back in classrooms.  The United Teachers Los Angeles, which is the union that represents staff in the Los Angeles Unified School District, fears that Newsom's school reopening plan will favor 'white and wealthier schools' in neighborhoods where COVID-19 is less prevalent.  Newsom and lawmakers have been under increasing pressure to come up with a statewide plan to allow students to return for in-person classes given most have been learning from home for the past year.  If approved by the Legislature, the plan announced on Monday would see $2 billion set aside to pay districts that get select groups of students into classrooms by the end of the month.   Cecily Myart-Cruz, head of UTLA, has slammed the plan and argued that it was being driven largely by 'white wealthy parents'.  Cecily Myart-Cruz, head of United Teachers Los Angeles, has slammed Gov Gavin Newsom's plan...
    The liberal hosts of "The View" blasted conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh the day after his death, saying Thursday that he "normalized hatred" for "people sitting in their trucks in the middle of America" and suggesting he was in Hell. "I remember listening to him as a kid growing up, and for me, he just normalized hatred," co-host Sunny Hostin said. "He normalized racism, and I think he really weaponized White male grievance, and he hardened these rural White listeners, people sitting in their trucks in the middle of America, and in the south, listening to Rush Limbaugh.". Hostin reeled off a list of what she considered Limbaugh's offensive remarks through the years and said he had paved the way for "Trumpism." "This is someone who spewed racism and hatred, yet he is now considered I guess an influential person in building the modern Republican Party and conservatism ... I don't know that that's something to be proud of," she said.

Ron Perlman reserved his “deepest sympathies” not for Limbaugh but for Lucifer in a tweet on Wednesday. The actor also used Limbaugh’s death to plug his 2004 movie Hellboy. “Me being Hellboy n shit, and having spent so much time in hades, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the poor devil who will no doubt have to spend the rest of eternity with Rush Limbaugh,” he wrote.

    The mainstream media largely portrayed conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh in a negative light in obituaries published following Wednesday's announcement of his death.  The Washington Post and The New York Times both described Limbaugh as a "provocateur" in their headlines and both lead their obits with uncanny descriptions of the broadcasting giant.  "Rush Limbaugh, who deployed comic bombast and relentless bashing of liberals, feminists and environmentalists to become the nation’s most popular radio talk-show host and lead the Republican Party into a politics of anger and obstruction, died Feb. 17 at 70," the Post began.  "Rush Limbaugh, the relentlessly provocative voice of conservative America who dominated talk radio for more than three decades with shooting-gallery attacks on liberals, Democrats, feminists, environmentalists and other moving targets, died on Wednesday," the Times similarly wrote.

The 2018 policy required asylum seekers arriving at the Mexico border to await a decision on their claims before entering the US. Applicants currently awaiting a decision will be allowed into the US under Biden’s phase-out. White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan and his deputy Liz Sherwood-Randall said in a statement that the initial rollback of “Remain in Mexico” will apply only to the 71,000 asylum seekers who are already part of the program. “If you seek entry into the US and do not have an active MPP case, you will be immediately expelled and will not be permitted to remain in the United States,” they said....

    New York Giants: One underrated pass rusher to target in the 2nd round By: Alexander Wilson January 28, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants struggled to produce a pass rush with their outside linebackers in 2020, primarily due to injuries. Starters Oshane Ximines and Lorenzo Carter both went down with season-ending injuries, which left seventh-round pick Carter Coughlin and practice squad players to pick up the leftover reps. The Giants still managed to put together an impressive defensive unit, which recorded over 40 sacks on the year. Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham devised an effective scheme to conjure a pass rush when the unit lacked significant talent at OLB. With Carter and Ximines expected to return in 2021, the expectation is that they will take a step forward, but relying on two injured players might not be the most efficient move. That could lead general manager Dave Gettleman and the coaching staff to find a solution in the NFL draft, and one player could be a perfect scheme fit in the second round....

    In the 1980s, 'Freeway' Ricky Ross built a crack cocaine empire that extended from his Los Angeles base to over 40 cities around the country. 'I was one of the richest guys in LA,' Ross said in a new documentary.  Reportedly a millionaire by 23, Ross was raking in so much cash – about $900 million in today's money – that he hired people to count it, according to a 2013 Esquire profile. Federal prosecutors said that Ross 'bought and resold three tons of cocaine,' between 1982 and 1989, according to the article.   Ross was not the only one profiting off the highly addictive drug. In New York City, Corey Pegues made money 'hand over fist' when he dealt crack. 'We went from making a hundred dollars a day to thousands of dollars a day. I was in it for money, clothes, jewelry and girls,' he recalled in the film.

    By Zaidee Stavely, EdSource With the door to apply for DACA open for the first time in more than three years, hundreds of high school and college students in California are rushing to apply, fearful it will be slammed shut again. “We’re on a mad dash to put out as much educational content for folks as possible,” said Juliana Macedo do Nascimento, the state and local policy manager for United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the country. “We know that this window is open, but we don’t know for how long.” A federal judge ordered the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services on Dec. 4 to fully restore Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the program that provides temporary protection from deportation and permission to work for about 700,000 young people who came to the U.S. as children. Court battles ensued after the Trump administration attempted to end DACA in September 2017, and first-time applications have not been accepted since then. Although the attempt to end the program was described as “arbitrary and capricious” by the U.S. Supreme...
    New York Jets: Is this the end of the road for Jordan Jenkins in green and white? By: Dylan Price December 19, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditJordan Jenkins has been regarded as the New York Jets‘ best pass rusher for the past few years. Jenkins was rumored to be leaving the team last season, but Jenkins came back for another year under Gregg Williams on a prove-it deal. Jenkins was projected to be the lead disruptor for the team this season. Instead, amongst all the bad on the team this year, his underwhelming performance has flown under the radar. His Poor Performance Last season, Jenkins hit career highs in sacks, TFLs, deflections and tied his career high in forced fumbles. He ended the season with 32 tackles, 8.0 sacks, 9 TFLs, 2 FFs and 3 deflections. The years before that, in 3 seasons, he showed consistent production increases in his pass-rushing stats.

    Rush Limbaugh has warned that the US is 'trending towards secession' because 'there cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life' in one nation.  The conservative radio host, 69, predicted that some states may soon break away from the rest of the US and declare independence, sparking the same set of circumstances that led to the American Civil War.  His comments come as 18 states have joined Texas in launching Supreme Court legal action to toss out millions of votes in four battleground states in support of Donald Trump. It marks the latest legal action in the wake of the presidential election which has left the nation divided, with Trump refusing to admit defeat and continuing to push unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud.   Rush Limbaugh (pictured with Melania Trump in February) has warned that the US is 'trending towards secession' because 'there cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life' in one nation
    The UFC has been around for more than 25 years. Over the course of its existence, the promotion has seen multiple fighters that have transcended the sport and achieved great things.  The likes of Jon Jones, Georges St-Pierre, Khabib Nurmagomedov among others have left an undeniable mark on the sport. There have been many champions in the company’s history. However, a select few have achieved things both inside and outside the octagon that can not be comprehended. These fighters have been able to dominate world-class opponents put in front of them and make them look like day one amateurs.  Like with any other sport, fans are always clamoring to crown an athlete as the greatest. MMA fans are no different.

    Rush Limbaugh has said that Trump supporters seeking to overturn the election result look like 'kooks', as he urged the president, with time running out, to embark on a highly-organized and efficient campaign to show evidence of his voter fraud claims. The conservative radio host, one of Trump's most fervent fans, has been growing increasingly frustrated by the widely-mocked, scattershot approach to the fraud allegations. On Friday - the same day the legal team, led by Rudy Giuliani, suffered defeats in six states - Limbaugh beseeched the president and his team to get their act together. 'As a conservative, it's getting harder and harder to not look like a kook,' said Limbaugh, speaking on his radio show.

    There are six dives to the Titanic's wreck planned for 2021. AP OceanGate Expeditions is launching dives to the Titanic's wreck in 2021. A spot on the trip costs $125,000: Guests must be over 18, physically able, and will be vetted for compatibility. Guests on the expedition aren't called guests; they're "mission specialists" and meant to help the crew with data gathering. While this is a commercial venture, the expedition's goal is to gather as much data about the wreck as possible before it decays completely. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that "travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The Titanic sank 109 years ago, was discovered 25 years ago, and has seen few humans in the last 15 years — it's estimated that fewer than 200 people have visited the wreck. Soon, however, it will be open to visitors — visitors with $125,000 to spare, that is. Despite the hefty price tag, Stockton Rush, president of OceanGate Expeditions, wants you to know that this...

    Santa Clara – The 49ers’ latest season trade compared to the acquisitions of Jimmy Carpolo and Emmanuel Sanders in recent years, but they made a deal on Wednesday to help with the disabled pass emergency. League sources have confirmed that third-year Edge Rusher Jordan Willis is joining the Niners from the NFL’s worst team, the New York Jets. Willis’ trade, due to the current COVID-19 protocol and physical examination, will not be official until next week, so he will not be available when the 49ers (3-3) play next Sunday in the New England Patriots (2-3). . Head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed on Monday that the cost is not constrained by the 49ers team’s goal of creating a bigger draft class next year than the five-man pack this year. The NFL Network reports that the 49ers will compete with Willis in the 2022 Sixth Round Draft Exam and the 2021 Seventh Round Exam. Look at the current defensive line and it becomes clear why Willis is needed. Even better, check the injury report, because 49 players have lost several defenders this...
    Conservative talk radio presenter Rush Limbaugh said on his show Monday that his lung cancer had worsened and was “going in the wrong direction” despite treatment. “It’s hard to realize that the days when I didn’t think I was on death row are over,” he said according to his show’s transcript. The 69-year-old Mr. Limbaugh told his audience that he had been diagnosed with lung cancer for the first time in February and had noticed shortness of breath. He said he will continue to work, except for taking a few days off to determine the treatment plan subject to testing. But on Monday, he said he wanted to update his listeners about his health and how the disease affects him, saying the ups and downs are like “a roller coaster at times when you can’t get out.” “Sometimes you can decide, you know, this drug might work, but I hate the way I feel every day. I’m not there yet,” Mr Limbaugh said. “But this is part of it.” He said he underwent a treatment just two weeks ago, which...

    The other day, I was in a metro area Dollar Tree to stock up on Smarties (because, obviously, Smarties are good), when I saw him: the one guy in the store without a mask. The modest-sized outlet was fairly crowded — around fifteen to twenty customers and three employees desperately trying to handle the rush. The store appeared to be short-staffed, with just one checkout line open. Yet all the workers and everyone waiting to pay for items, as well as various folks in aisles, wore a facial covering. Some were cloth, others were made of disposable paper, and all but one were worn properly, concealing both nose and mouth. Even a woman energetically talking on a cell phone was masked, putting the lie to the canard about the voices of those so garbed being impossible to understand. Hell, the people in the parking lot could probably have picked out every word she spoke, loud and clear. The mask-free exception to this rule was, predictably, a man of a certain age — fifties, I'd say — and he wore a...

    President Donald Trump has challenged Joe Biden to an in-person debate, after the independent commission that organizes the debates moved next week's event online out of health concerns. Trump has refused to participate in the October 15 debate if it is conducted virtually, but on Thursday night he told Fox News host Sean Hannity that the two campaigns should organize their own in-person contest. 'I'll do it right now through your show,' Trump said when asked if he would issue such a challenge. 'Let's go Joe. Let's get a fair anchor, somebody like the great Sean Hannity. We'll get Rush [Limbaugh]. We'll get Mark [Levin],' he added, referring to the conservative commentators. 'Yeah, that'll happen,' Hannity responded, laughing. Trump, on a roll, continued listing his dream moderators.

    Rush Limbaugh Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh complained about the “unfair” setup of the 2020 debates as he reacted to the first head to head between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. Limbaugh kicked off his Wednesday show by pronouncing the debate “so frustrating” to watch. He swiftly directed his ire toward Chris Wallace, saying he likes the Fox News anchor, but his debate moderation was “unfair” since “it was Trump versus two people.” This segued into a monologue where Limbaugh approved of Trump’s attempts to present himself as more mentally composed than Biden, but “Trump interrupted him rather than let it happen a number of times.” “Trump desperately wanted to debate. The moderator kept interrupting, the moderator and the questions,” Limbaugh groaned. “Just get out of the way! You’ve got a debate raging…Let the candidates engage. Let the audience decide who is more in command of facts and more in command of the stage, instead of this silly attempt to enforce a bunch of rules.” The topic remained at the forefront for Limbaugh as he...
    Conservative radio titan Rush Limbaugh accused Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson of endorsing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden  because of Johnson’s interest in pleasing the Chinese Communist Party. “Dwayne Johnson’s audience, just like LeBron James and all of these current pop culture icons — it is the ChiComs who are paying them,” Limbaugh said on his Tuesday radio program. “It is the ChiComs who own them. And it is the Chinese to whom they are loyal.” Limbaugh claimed the reception to Johnson’s endorsement from his fans was overwhelmingly negative: “100,000 comments in response to The Rock’s Facebook post, and it is clear that his endorsement’s backfired,” Limbaugh said. “There are almost no comments supporting his decision to endorse Biden. Ninety-five percent of the comments are expressions of anger and feelings of betrayal.” “Do you think he cares? I don’t think he cares. Because believe me, folks, what’s really happening here is he’s pleasing his masters in China,” he continued. Johnson on Sunday endorsed the Democratic ticket against President Donald Trump, telling his followers in a video posted to social media that...
    Haas driver Romain Grosjean may lose his seat at the end of 2020, after failing to impress in the last couple of years. The American team has been rumored to be on the lookout for new candidates to fill their seats in 2021. Grosjean is aware of the fact that he may no longer be an F1 driver. However, he doesn’t believe his motorsports career is done yet. Speaking at the driver’s press conference ahead of the Russian Grand Prix, Grosjean said, “Obviously, there aren’t many seats left in Formula 1, and there are many candidates. So I do understand the point of view from Haas. “It totally makes sense they’re not in a rush. But I don’t think I’m in a rush either. There are options elsewhere as well, which can be interesting.” While Grosjean wouldn’t mind racing in other series, he knows the charm that F1 holds. He said, “Obviously, Formula 1 is Formula 1. Coming from Mugello, driving those cars in Mugello, you’re like yeah, you know what, it’s absolutely unique what I’m driving. “Formula 1 is...
