    SHOPPING at a store like Target can be dangerous for your credit card. Walking down the aisles of home goods, discount clothing, electronics, and snacks means you’ll be tempted at every corner to throw something you don’t need in your shopping cart. 3A target guru shared a little-known hack that will help you save as you shopCredit: Getty 3She revealed that you can get five cents back for every bag that you bringCredit: TikTok A target guru who goes by @targetwhileblack on TikTok said there’s a way to save money when you check out at the chain store that most people don’t know about.

    It was Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor, who ordained ‘you can never be too rich or too thin’. She was talking about women, but it increasingly seems she might have been referring to skyscrapers. A battle of multi-millionaire one-upmanship created Manhattan’s skyline and its new addition once again takes the breath away. More than a quarter of a mile high but no more than 60 ft wide, the Steinway Tower, which has opened for residents, isn’t just exceptionally tall, it is almost painfully thin. And to live there you have to have the sums that even the Duchess probably never imagined.  It’s not only one of the tallest buildings in the western world; with a height-to-width ratio of 24:1 (that is, 24 times taller than it is wide), it is the world’s skinniest skyscraper. ‘These are not the proportions of a classical column but of a coffee stirrer,’ a critic sniped. Here, Tom Leonard offers a bird’s eye view of the latest must-have for those living the high life . . .  More than a quarter of a mile high but...

    London (CNN Business)A car that can transform into a small aircraft has passed flights tests with flying colors in Slovakia, developers say. The "AirCar" was awarded an official Certificate of Airworthiness by the Slovak Transport Authority after completing 70 hours of "rigorous flight testing," according to Klein Vision, the company behind the "dual-mode car-aircraft vehicle."

    SOCIAL Security benefits are paid out to tens of millions of elderly Americans and those with disabilities every year. There are three different types of Social Security benefits: retirement, survivor, and disability. 1Social Security Benefits Application How long it takes to get Social Security It generally takes the Social Security Administration (SSA) about six weeks to process your application and start your benefits. However, this time period can vary for a couple of reasons. Your benefits could get delayed if you supply incorrect information on your application. Another reason may be that the SSA needs additional or updated information from you. Finally, there is also a large number of applications being sent to the SSA on a daily basis, so you may encounter a longer-than-usual processing time.

    (CNN)In 2018, barely two years into the Trump era, I hit a wall. I was in a near-constant state of agitation, emotionally and physically exhausted and with contempt coursing through my veins for large swaths of people I had never even met. If this state had been helpful to anyone or any cause I cared about, perhaps it would have been worth it. But it wasn't. America felt as divided and toxic as it had ever been in my lifetime. Little did I know, we were just getting warmed up.Kirsten PowersWhile the US was hardly a Valhalla of comity before Donald J. Trump became president, there is no question he quickly became a dividing line in many relationships. Sixteen percent of Americans told pollsters they had stopped talking to a family member or friend because of the 2016 election. By 2019, when researchers asked Republicans and Democrats if they believed that members of the opposing party were "just worse for politics" or "downright evil," more than 40% in each party chose "downright evil." Twenty percent of Democrats and 15% of...
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- New COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the state have flattened after a steady two-month decline that saw California boast the nation's lowest infection rate. Now, L.A. County is seeing more cases as its vaccine mandate is set to go into effect next week.On Thursday, the county was reporting 20 new COVID deaths along with 1,887 new cases.The county's public health director, Barbara Ferrer, urged residents to get vaccinated and continue wearing masks during a news conference on Thursday."Given that there is still considerable transmission, along with the risk that changing conditions favor easier spread of COVID as more activities move indoors, and more people travel, and gather to celebrate holidays, it remains important for us to maintain additional layers of protection," she said.Ferrer also took time to address confusion circulating the county's vaccine mandate for public businesses, which is set to begin next week. She said the mandate will apply in both the county and the city of Los Angeles.Earlier this month, the county already began imposing COVID vaccination requirements at indoor portions of bars, wineries,...
    TRAINS, planes and automobiles - whichever way you plan to get to your holiday destination, now is the time to nail down those plans. Holiday travel is expected to be a busy one and any kind of deal will be dashed if you don't book now. 1Experts recommend to start booking your holiday travel now When is the best time to book flights? For domestic flights, it's best to think about purchasing your airline ticket at least three weeks in advance to avoid heftier prices. Travel expert Cynika Drake, president of Lavish Lifestyles Concierge, told The Sun Sundays and Tuesdays are the best days to book a flight. She said: "Before you book your flight, clear out your cookies as websites use this to gauge your interest and from there inflate the price, especially if you have looked multiple times on that site for a flight or hotel." "Also, to prevent tracking, view airline and hotel sites in private browsing mode." If you're traveling internationally, there are still deals with prices about 35% lower than in 2019.

A COVID-19 health check is required by the “event organizer” upon entry, which means show a negative test (taken 72-hours prior to the show) or your vaccination card. The evening’s other opener, Travis Tritt, quoted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a statement where he said vaccination mandates are a “form of discrimination” but, alas, the injustice didn’t shake Tritt’s principles enough to make him drop off the show, so he’s still on the bill.
