    Billionaire hedge fund founder Ray Dalio has warned that the US economy is headed for 'stagflation' similar to that of the 1970s.  'I think that most likely what we're going to have is a period of stagflation. And then you have to understand how to build a portfolio that's balanced for that kind of an environment,' Dalio told Yahoo Finance in an interview published on Monday.  Stagflation is defined as a period of high inflation paired with an economic slowdown and rising unemployment -- an unusual combination that the US faced in the 1970s, when oil crises and failed monetary policy stunned the economy.  'The past is a guide to what's happening now,' said Dalio, the founder of Bridgewater Associates. 'The environment that we're in is beginning to be very much like that of the 1970s.' Billionaire hedge fund founder Ray Dalio has warned that the US economy is headed for 'stagflation' similar to that of the 1970s Inflation is currently running at its highest level in 40 years, with the consumer price index hitting a 7.9 percent annual rate...
    MANDEL NGAN/AFP via Getty Images A number of Democratic Party strategists spoke to The Hill seven months ahead of the November midterms. One of them concluded the party is doomed. With record gas prices and four-decade high inflation pricing some Americans out of basic commodities, party insiders weighed in. The consensus was President Joe Biden and Democrats are in serious trouble. Worried about not only losing a majority in the House, but also in the Senate, top strategists spoke of the issues Democrats face in convincing Americans to turn out and vote for them in the fall. Bill Galston, who advised former President Bill Clinton, said Biden’s approval numbers can only go so high right now. “My hypothesis is that, unless and until inflation comes down appreciably, that there’s going to be a ceiling on his job approval that’s a lot lower than the White House wants it to be,” Galston said. Gallup senior editor Jeff Jones concurred. “High gas prices are one of the biggest anchors on presidential approval,” Jones said. Biden’s approval rating is hovering at a round...
    Grammys host Trevor Noah opened the show on Sunday night with a joke about Will Smith slapping Chris Rock during last week's Oscars. Smith, after storming onto the stage, returned to his seat and yelled at Rock to 'keep my wife's name out your f--king mouth.' On Sunday night, Noah joked: 'We're going to be keeping peoples names out of our mouths.'  Just a week after Smith's infamous Oscars meltdown, multiple controversies surrounding the Grammys mean that the music industry's top awards show was always a veritable powder keg set to blow.  Trevor Noah is hosting the Grammys in Las Vegas on Sunday night Will Smith slapped Chris Rock onstage at the Oscars Sunday after the comedian made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith After smacking Rock, a now visibly fuming Smith returned to his seat and began repeatedly yelling: 'Keep my wife's name out of your f***ing mouth'   The Grammys will have to navigate a delicate situation with Kanye West, who was banned from performing but is expected to attend with five nominations on the line.

    Gen. Tod Wolters, the head of U.S. European Command, believes the United States will likely need to deploy additional troops to Europe in the future in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Wolters, who testified in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee along with Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost, the commander of U.S. Transportation Command, provided committee members with an updated overview of the situation in Ukraine and its overarching effect on Europe and NATO itself. He noted that the U.S. has already increased its presence in the continent to more than 100,000, but he warned that that might not be enough. BIDEN'S PROPOSED $773 BILLION PENTAGON BUDGET, A 1.5% REAL INCREASE, DRAWS FIRE FROM GOP LAWMAKERS “I think what we need to do from a U.S. force perspective is look at what takes place in Europe following the completion of Ukraine-Russia scenario and examine the European contributions and, based off the breadth and depth of the European contributions, be prepared to adjust the U.S. contributions,” Wolters said. “And my suspicion is we’re going to still need more.” The...
    Whoopi Goldberg told her co-hosts Monday on ABC’s “The View” that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences would not strip actor Will Smith of his best actor win because he slapped comedian Chris Rock during the Oscars. Co-host Sunny Hostin said,  “I was, you know, the slap heard around the world took away from this, but Questlove winning best documentary for his directorial debut of ‘Summer of Soul.’ I think Will Smith probably owes him an apology as well, but I think — Co-host Joy Behar said, “Why?” Hostin continued, “Because he stole his moment in his selfishness, I think. I have to also say about that, I’m surprised that he was not escorted out, and you would know more about this than I would, of course, Whoopi, but I’m surprised that not only was he not escorted out, he was applauded and got a standing ovation when he won the Oscar, and I wonder if the Academy is going to let him keep it?” Goldberg said, “We’re not going to take that Oscar from him.” Hostin said,...
    A British man has escaped from the devastated city of Mariupol by walking to Russia after becoming trapped with his wife for almost a month in ‘hell on earth’. Charlie Gilkeson, 68, a lecturer from Yorkshire, said the couple felt ‘very, very lucky’ after surviving the ferocious fighting for control of Mariupol, the key Ukrainian port, which has been blown apart and left blazing by weeks of relentless Russian bombardment. ‘It was just explosions everywhere,’ he said. ‘You could not walk anywhere. Every explosion could be your last moment on earth. Every second could be your final one alive.’ Charlie Gilkeson, 68, is a lecturer from Yorkshire who walked from Mariupol to Russia on foot alongside his Russian wife, pictured on the right, fleeing deadly shelling from Putin's army One month after the war began, Mariupol now encapsulates the horrors of the invasion.

Mr Gilkeson, whose wife Iryna comes from...

    Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have raised more than $18million for the people of war-torn Ukraine, just five days after launching a GoFundMe page to aid local charities.  The couple set a financial goal of $30,000,000 on Thursday, with all proceeds donated to Flexport.org, Airbnb.org and their attempt to aid stricken Ukrainian civilians as their country comes under attack from Russian forces.   Kunis, 38 - who was born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine before relocating to the United States when she was seven years old - has since confirmed the fundraising page has already raised over half of their intended target.    Success: Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have raised more than $18million for the people of war-torn Ukraine, just five days after launching a GoFundMe page to aid local charities Taking to Instagram, she wrote: 'UPDATE!! 15 million.

    Vice President Kamala Harris on Wednesday voiced the Biden administration’s support for Ukraine amid Russia’s invasion. Harris told ABC News’ “Good Morning America” that the administration would do “everything” it could “to support the Ukrainian people.” “[W] e’re going to do everything we can to support the Ukrainian people. And so, we are doing that through our security assistance, through economic assistance, humanitarian assistance,” Harris explained. “Again, when speaking to the prime ministers that I mentioned just yesterday, we talked in great detail about what we are doing to increase almost on a daily basis our security assistance; what we’re doing on almost a daily basis, including to increase our lethal assistance in terms of what they need and what they require to defend themselves and their country. So, we’re not going to let up.” “But there is no question — look, this is Putin’s war,” she continued. “And we are very concerned, and we are monitoring it. We are fully aware that if there is any intentional targeting of civilians that, we are looking at the fact that there...
    Falls Church, Virginia-based building security company Kastle Systems has been keeping track of how many people are in office buildings in the D.C. area by tallying building entry card and fob swipes, and it’s still just 32.3%. The average in the 10 biggest cities it has been tracking is 36.4%. Yet we are traveling and going out at nearly normal numbers again. More Business News Kastle Systems had added new data points to its weekly Workplace Occupancy Barometer to compare where people are willing to go. NBA game attendance is at 93.1% of pre-pandemic levels. OpenTable reservations for restaurants are at 84%. TSA checkpoints at airports are at 82.7%. Even movie theaters are busier than offices. “The data there supports that people are very comfortable in coming back together. And they are doing it. They are just not doing it at the office,” said Mark Ein, chairman of Kastle Systems. “I think what that says to us is that the slower return to the office is no longer just about health and safety, or maybe it’s not about...
    During an interview that aired Sunday on New York WABC 770 AM radio’s “The Cats Roundtable,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich predicted that Russia ramping up aggression toward Ukraine means “the end of the post-World War II system.” Gingrich told host John Catsimatidis that “we’re going to see a much more violent world” and warned China would try to seize Taiwan after seeing how weak the West is. “[Vladimir Putin] is a little bit like a gambler who he’s going to push see what the reaction is,” Gingrich advised. “If the West is as weak as it seems right now, he will push again, probably against the three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania — maybe against Poland. He really wants to destroy NATO and drive the U.S. out of Europe. And he sees that as his job.” “In the case of the Germans, China is their biggest export market now,” he continued. “I mean, they sell more BMWs and Mercedes and Volkswagons in China, and Russia is the source of their inexpensive energy. So, the two great dictatorships...
    AS CHELSEA fans, it is absolutely nothing new to see a global hatred of our club. It is something that we saw when Roman Abramovich first took the reigns over nearly 20 years ago.  2Roman Abramovich has made Chelsea increasingly unpopular with other teams' fansCredit: Getty 2Chelsea fans will stand by their club and support the team regardless of ownershipCredit: Rex The moment he started injecting his money into the club and spending huge sums on top new players, we were hated, we were 'ruining football'. Chelsea have once again become the most hated club in football, but this time it's different. With Russia invading Ukraine and our Russian owners alleged links to Vladimir Putin, we are now all being tarred with that brush. Abramovich has always denied, and continues to deny any links to Putin's regime, and many of us, as Chelsea fans, have supported this club way before Abramovich even took us over. Yet we continued to be collectively tarnished as a club and group of supporters that are 'Putin's club' amongst other slurs I have...
    Former President Donald Trump hinted at a 2024 presidential run, saying, “We’re going to be doing it again,” on Saturday during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Trump highlighted the size of the crowd listening to his CPAC speech and warned his detractors that “They’re going to find out the hard way,” after the 2022 midterm election and the 2024 general elections. “And this is some crowd. We broke the record again, but they’re going to find out the hard way starting on November 8, and then again even more so on November 2024,” Trump said. “They will find out like never before we did it twice. And we’ll do it again. We’re going to be doing it again. A third time.” Trump’s remarks at CPAC are the closest he has come to announcing his 2024 candidacy officially. He told Newsmax last summer that he would make an announcement about 2024 “in the not too distant future,” and added that he might want to wait for the results of the midterm elections. Trump concluded his CPAC speech by emphasizing...

    Boris Johnson and Joe Biden have sparked renewed optimism of a strengthened special relationship between the UK and the US after they stepped up their efforts to solve the Ukraine crisis.  The Prime Minister and US President held a 40 minute phone call last night to discuss the situation.  Mr Biden is said to have told Mr Johnson at the end of the conversation that 'we're not going anywhere without you pal'.  The comment will boost hopes of a further improvement in relations between London and Washington DC after tensions over the withdrawal from Afghanistan and Brexit.  It comes days after a new book claimed that Mr Biden's mother hated England so much that she chose to sleep on the floor rather than in a bed at a hotel where the Queen once stayed.  Boris Johnson and Joe Biden have sparked renewed optimism of a strengthened special relationship between the UK and the US after they stepped up their efforts to solve the Ukraine crisis Mr Biden is said to have told Mr Johnson at the end of their phone call...
    Whoopi Goldberg returned to The View a day early following her two-week suspension after claiming the Holocaust was "not about race." "It's not always as other people would like to hear," Goldberg said upon her return. She added it is important to have these conversations because "they're important to us as a nation." She avoided the word race, instead saying the conversations are also important for us as a "human entity." "It's not about race," Goldberg said of the Holocaust on the Jan. 31 show. "It’s about man’s inhumanity to man, that’s what it’s about."

    EXCLUSIVE: More police officers have been killed in the line of duty under President Biden's leadership than in prior years since 1995, and a law enforcement nonprofit wants the president to start speaking up.While officer line-of-duty deaths reached record highs beginning in 2020 due to COVID-19, killings of officers are also up, according to the FBI's law enforcement officers killed in action (LEOKA) data. "We believe it's a combination … of the George Floyd protests — riots, if you will; a general feeling of a preference for less law enforcement; and less prosecution and less policing," said Jason Johnson, president of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund (LELDF) and a 20-year police veteran.  "Law enforcement officers have essentially been marginalized and demoralized and cast aside and encouraged now to enforce the law. And so we've seen massive jumps in the homicide rate in cities across America."

    CHICAGO (CBS) — For more than a decade, the Bears have watched the Packers dominate the NFC North, but new general manager Ryan Poles and head coach Matt Eberflus are confident they can quickly change that narrative as they take command at Halas Hall. “We’re going to take the North and never give it back,” Poles declared at the pair’s introductory press conference on Monday.

He said one of his first tasks in taking the helm is evaluating the team’s strengths and weaknesses, and being aggressive about fixing what’s broken. “We’re going to have a relentless approach to fix our weakness.

    President Joe Biden vowed to "fix" the nearly 45,000 bridges in disrepair across the nation after visiting the site of a collapsed bridge in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Friday. "That's why your governor and your members of Congress, your mayor, have been saying for years, we have to do something about this," Biden told attendees at an event at Carnegie Mellon University. "I've talked about it every time I've come to Pittsburgh, and we finally got it done. A bipartisan infrastructure law, including the largest investment in our nation's bridges since Eisenhower put together the interstate highway system. And I might add this is the first time in the country's history that we dedicated a national program to repair and upgrade bridges. It's about time." The president had scheduled the trip to Pittsburgh to discuss his administration's efforts to ease supply chain bottlenecks, but the focus quickly shifted to the collapsed bridge in Pittsburgh's suburb of Fern Hollow Friday morning. "It's incredible," Biden added of the first responders while visiting the scene. "These guys deserve an incredible amount of credit...
    Irish fishermen look set to take on the Russian Navy, with a fishing organisation in the country planning a peaceful protest of military drills off the island’s coast. The Irish South and West Fish Producer’s Organisation (ISWFPO) is planning to disrupt military exercises set to be conducted by the Russian navy off the Irish coast, despite warnings from the Russian embassy in Ireland that such a move would be “reckless and irresponsible”. Russia’s navy is planning to conduct missile tests 240km off the Irish coast in early February, despite protests from Ireland’s government According to a report by The Times, fisherman from the organisation will continue operations in the region where the live-fire tests will be conducted, though a spokesman for the group emphasised that they would not be looking to directly challenge Russian forces. “We’re not going out there to challenge the Russian navy or take on a warship,” the publication reports the ISWFPO Chief Executive, Patrick Murphy, as saying. “We’re going fishing in our fishing zones and if they feel like we’re interfering with their activities, tough. We’re not moving...
    Tiffany Haddish is addressing her recent brush with the law. The 42-year-old comedian found herself in headlines earlier this month when she was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence in Georgia after officers responded to a call regarding a driver falling asleep at the wheel in the early morning hours. Haddish opened up about the ordeal – as well as her recent breakup from rapper Common – during her recent appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," which aired on Monday night.

    Rabbi Brian Strauss with Congregation Beth Yeshurun in Houston, Texas discussed the "frightening" hostage situation at another synagogue in his state, noting that he is now going to "reevaluate everything that we do" and increase security at his place of worship.  "It is really frightening and scary that the Jewish day of rest, the Sabbath, was disturbed for this particular synagogue of course and really for Jews all over the world," he said on "Fox & Friends Weekend" on Sunday.  "This is a day of rest, a day to thank God for all the good of our life, to be with our friends and family," Strauss told co-hosts Will Cain, Rachel Campos-Duffy, and Pete Hegseth, noting that the day of rest was "disturbed in such a horrifying way" on Saturday.  "Thank God everything worked out for the best, but it’s frightening for all of us that attend places of worship in this great country," he went on to say, referencing the fact that all four hostages at the Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, near Fort Worth, were released without injury. TEXAS SYNAGOGUE ACCUSED HOSTAGE TAKER WAS BRITISH NATIONAL  The hostage-taker, who has been identified as...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday reemphasized that the world will not “eradicate” the Chinese coronavirus, despite President Biden’s previous vow to defeat the virus itself.  He made the remarks during Wednesday’s press briefing by the White House COVID-19 Response Team and public health officials, discussing the reduced severity of the omicron variant of the virus.  “So, if we’re going to look ahead at what happens when this peaks and it ultimately goes down — as I’ve said on previous pressers here from the White House: that we’re not going to eradicate this,” Fauci proclaimed.  “We’ve only done that with smallpox. We’re not going to eliminate that; that only happens with massive vaccination programs like we did with measles and with vaccines. But we ultimately will control it,” he said, previewing a world where individuals learn to deal with the virus, yet failing to mention that public health officials have largely made that a difficult feat, given the initial months of lockdowns and subsequent restrictions nearly two years later.  “And if you control it in a way it’s at a such a...
    Joe Manchin, happy to be surrounded by reporters as long as they don't ask him any hard questions. The first thing that broke after Sen. Joe Manchin announced his opposition to President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, ostensibly because of his economic concerns, was news that Goldman Sachs was downgrading its economic forecast for the nation for the next quarter. “A failure to pass BBB has negative growth implications,” Goldman Sachs economists told clients Sunday. The economists wrote in a report that the failure to pass BBB has “negative implications for near-term consumption” and said that the uncertainty of the expanded child tax credit’s fate is the “most important question for the near-term outlook.” That’s the provision Manchin supposedly specifically opposes because he thinks “parents would waste monthly child tax credit payments on drugs instead of providing for their children,” to quote sources who are familiar with his comments to fellow Democrats. Robert Shapiro, economist and adviser to the Obama administration, toldThe Washington Post’s Greg Sargent that “Goldman Sachs is saying the impact on growth will be greater in not passing BBB than any...
    President Joe Biden headlined the Democratic National Committee's glamorous holiday party on Tuesday night, giving a speech in which he touted his administration's agenda and railed against Republican objection to Democrats' voting rights legislation. He said the GOP was following Donald Trump 'into the abyss' by fueling baseless claims the 2020 election was rigged. Hours after speaking to a 400-person audience full of top Democrats and DNC donors the president struck a more somber tone in a statement memorializing the 800,000 Americans who have died of COVID-19 so far. He also expressed optimism for the upcoming 2022 midterm elections - despite his party's underwhelming performance in this year's races and his own sinking poll numbers. The remarks were delivered at the Hotel Washington. The event was held outdoors over Omicron concerns.  After spending several minutes talking about the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure investment and thanking his wealthy donors, Biden turned his attention to Democrats' struggle to pass federal voting rights legislation. 'The right to vote is under unrelenting assault by Republican governors, attorney generals, secretaries of state, state legislators. They're...

    Erec Smith, professor at York College (Pa.) and co-founder of "Free Black Thought," harshly criticized the latest "woke" movement in liberal education that aims to eliminate advanced math classes in schools. Smith agreed Thursday with more than 1,000 professors who took a stand against the movement. In an open letter, the educators argue that the "woke" movement would actually worsen the problem of inequality because it would reduce access to foundational education. "This is dumbing down," Smith said of the movement. "If you’re creating a form of education specifically for one group of kids because they can’t learn like everybody else, that’s just another iteration of the soft bigotry of low expectations." CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS ELIMINATING SEX-SPECIFIC RESTROOMS TO ‘INCREASE GENDER EQUITY’ "The soft bigotry of low expectations," a phrase coined in 2003 by former President George W. Bush, highlights a form of educational bias based on race: It is the expectation of less from disadvantaged individuals, which critics say discourages people from reaching their full potential.  Smith explained on "Fox & Friends" that math education can be racist if...

    Amid growing fears over a new super-mutated COVID-19 variant that looks to be quickly spreading across the world, Dr. Anthony Fauci said over the weekend that Americans are “going to have to start living” with the virus as “we’re not going to eradicate” it. Nearly two years into an ongoing pandemic that’s killed millions worldwide and over 750,000 in the U.S., global markets were spooked last week after coronavirus cases dramatically surged in South Africa. The spike has been blamed on the Omicron variant and has prompted the United States to place travel restrictions on eight African countries. At the same time, however, the new virus strain has already been detected in several European countries and Hong Kong, sparking concern among health officials that Omicron is not only highly transmissible but could evade current COVID-19 vaccines. Making the Sunday show rounds, Fauci warned that “we really need to be prepared” for increased Omicron transmission. Explaining on NBC’s Meet the Press that Omicron has “32 or more variants in that very important spike protein of the virus,” the nation’s top infectious...
    MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace told former Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Tuesday that they’ll have to “agree to disagree” over whether the Republican Party is worth saving. Returning from a commercial break, Wallace, a former Republican, said on Deadline: White House, “We’re back with former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, author of the new book Republican Rescue. We’re going to have to agree to disagree that Republicans are worth rescuing.” Shrugging his shoulders with his eyes looking up and head tilting one way, Christie responded, “Okay.” Wallace proceeded to ask Christie if former President Donald Trump gave the former governor the coronavirus. Christie said he had “no idea” and added that he was tested for Covid every time he went to the White House to do debate prep with Trump last year. As he had done in other interviews, Christie relayed his experience getting a call from Trump while being treated in the hospital for Covid and that Christie assured the then-president that he wouldn’t say that he got the virus from the commander-in-chief. Christie also reiterated the difference between Trump and his...

    President Biden on Tuesday predicted victory for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, while downplaying the influence of his policies, agenda and presidential approval ratings on the race. During a press conference on the sidelines of the United Nations COP26 climate summit, the president was asked about Tuesday’s governor race in Virginia – where McAuliffe, the former governor of the state, has slipped in the polls behind Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin – and whether his presidency could be to blame.

    Republican Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin told Fox News on Monday that his campaign expects to do "really well" in Tuesday’s highly anticipated gubernatorial race against Democrat Terry McAuliffe, offering a message of unity in a final push to energize voters ahead of the critical showdown.

    Texas cops and a 911 dispatcher ignored desperate pleas for help from Democratic Party officials aboard a Joe Biden campaign bus that was surrounded by a convoy known as the ‘Trump Train’ while driving down a freeway last year, a lawsuit claims.  Officials with the San Marcos police ‘privately laughed’ and ‘joked about the victims and their distress’ as those aboard the Biden-Harris campaign bus feared for their safety, it is alleged.  The federal lawsuit, filed by the Democrat Party, accuses the police of violating the so-called 'Ku Klux Klan act' that bans politically motivated violence.  The updated lawsuit, filed Friday, included transcribed 911 audio recordings, The Texas Tribune reported, although the audio of the offending calls has not been released.   According to the transcriptions, when the Biden bus entered San Marcos' jurisdiction, a New Braunfels 911 dispatcher tried to get neighboring San Marcos police to take over the escort that New Braunfels had provided along Interstate 35. ‘I am so annoyed at New Braunfels for doing this to us,’ a dispatcher told San Marcos police Corporal Matthew Daenzer, who laughed, according...

The three-time defensive player of the year has continued his disruptive ways this season, becoming the Rams’ official all-time leader in sacks when he took down Russell Wilson in Week Five. Then he helped lead to cornerback Jalen Ramsey’s game-sealing interception in the fourth quarter of last week’s win over Detroit when he pressured and hit former teammate Jared Goff in the red zone. But as the Texans gear up to play the Rams this week, head coach David Culley wants to keep Donald from completely messing up their game plan. He said in his Wednesday press conference that Houston “won’t have one-on-one battles with him most of the day. We’ll have two blocking him most of the time.” “He’s...

There’s an argument to be made that they shouldn’t be, given the unique, last-second losses the team suffered to the Ravens and the Vikings. But the record is the record and Detroit heads into a Week Seven matchup with the Rams 0-6. So first-year head coach Dan Campbell is going to change some things in the coming days — from the structure of practice to personnel. “There are a couple things. I would say all of the above,” Campbell said, via Kyle Meinke of MLive.com. “I don’t want to get too far into where that’ll go, as far as the roster, but we’re looking at that. I think we’re going to shake things up here a little...
    President Joe Biden said Friday that his social safety net budget reconciliation package won't hit the $3.5 trillion price tag outlined by Democratic leaders over the summer. His comments, delivered during remarks at a Connecticut child care center, mark the first time the president appeared to concede fully that he would need to reduce the scope of the bill in order to secure votes from centrist Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona. "When I hear people say it costs $3.5 trillion, I'll be honest with you, we're probably not going to get $3.5 trillion this year," the president said. "We're gonna get something less than that, but I'm going to negotiate. I'm going to get it done." Biden reiterated the reduced price tag near the tail end of his speech. "I'm convinced we're going to get it done. We're not going to get $3.5 trillion," he said in closing. "We'll get less than that, but we're going to get it, and we're going to come back and get the rest." The White...

Though he also noted it’s a bit of a scheduling oddity. “It’s kind of ironic we’re going all the way to London to play a team from Miami,” Lawrence said. “That’s the one thing I thought about, but we’re excited obviously. I haven’t been that many places, especially outside of the country, so it’s going to be really cool and to play a game over there is going to be really exciting.

    Dan Rather Fast Facts Achieving equity through mediocrity: Why elimination of gifted programs should worry us all © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Before the Bengals played the Packers in Week Five, tight end C.J. Uzomah said that beating Green Bay would “put the league on notice that we’re here.” The Bengals weren’t able to get that win, but they showed a lot of fight in the 25-22 overtime loss. They rallied to tie the game late in the fourth quarter and then saw kicker Evan McPherson miss a pair of field goals that could have made them victorious. While that may not have been enough to put the league on notice, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor does think that it showed that the Bengals aren’t going to be an easy opponent for any team this season. “It was a resilient group that showed through the effort, especially in overtime,” Taylor said, via the team’s website. “They played to that final down. Things just didn’t go our way. That’s life...
    At the Donald Trump rally in Des Moines, Iowa, MSNBC reporter Gary Grumbach interviewed supporters who have been arriving for days to the fairgrounds, including one woman who told him that a new Civil War is coming. During Alex Witt Reports on Saturday, Grumbach noted that in Iowa, Trump is polling higher now even than when he was president, and higher than both Gov. Kim Reynolds and popular long-time Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley. “Another question in the poll was about whether people think the country is on the right track or going off on the wrong track,” he continued. “70% of the country said they believe it’s going on the wrong track, and that does sort of line up of what we’re seeing in terms of Biden approval ratings from Quinnipiac and others.” Grumbach then caveated those results to add unrelatedly that Trump isn’t having an easy time all around due to investigations such as the ones in New York, before returning to Iowa rallygoer sentiments. “But I talked to folks out here who are simply just angry. They’re upset...

Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said that the team will not be making major alterations to their offense with Chuba Hubbard and Royce Freeman moving into leading roles in the backfield alongside quarterback Sam Darnold. “I think we’re just going to go out and run our offense,” Rhule said, via the team’s website. “Obviously you can’t replace the production of a Christian McCaffrey, but those other players have been waiting for their opportunity, and who knows what they’ll do when given that opportunity. So I don’t think it’s fair or right to Sam and the offensive line to go away from what we’ve been doing we’ve been working on it a long time.”...

"I'm sorry to all my friends, but we're not all going back," Benioff said in an on-stage interview at the Code Conference in Beverly Hills, California. Benioff's pronouncements on the future of the office are particularly notable since his company's gargantuan 61-floor tower in San Francisco opened just over three years ago. The company also has large buildings in cities including Indianapolis, London New York and Tokyo. Those were all constructed before Benioff had 18 months to see how his effectively his company and others can operate with employees working from home or in other remote locations. "We have almost 75,000 people now," Benioff said. "They're not in their towers. We built these gorgeous towers. They're mostly at home, and that's fine."
