    A final round of freezing temperatures strikes late Friday as the state struggles to rebound from winter storms One Slam at a time, says Osaka as expectations soar If you still haven’t received your second stimulus check by now, the Internal Revenue Service wants you to know the check just might be in the mail. © Getty Images At this point, all authorized first- and second-round stimulus checks have been issued, the IRS said Tuesday. Load Error Some second-round payments — giving $600 apiece for eligible adults and children — may still be in the mail, the IRS said. These payments may be coming as a paper check, or as a pre-loaded debit card, the tax collection agency has previously said. Otherwise, if a potentially eligible person still hasn’t received any money or the full amount they believe they should get, the way to access stimulus money now is by claiming the Recovery Rebate Credit on their 2020 income taxes. The IRS began accepting income tax returns on Friday, Feb. 12, and April 15 is the filing deadline....
    Dave Ramsey, known for his financial advice, went on Fox News and criticized the idea of another round of stimulus checks for the country during the coronavirus pandemic.  “I don't believe in a stimulus check because if $600 or $1400 changes your life, you were pretty much screwed already. You got other issues going on,” Ramsey said in the interview.  Fox News guest Dave Ramsey: "I don't believe in a stimulus check because if $600 or $1400 changes your life you were pretty much screwed already.

I’ve been bankrupt. I’ve been broke. I work with people every day who are hurting. I love people. I want people to be lifted up, but this...
    Financial talk show host Dave Ramsey on Thursday railed against President Joe Biden’s proposed coronavirus relief package, and the included stimulus checks, saying that it’s like “peeing on a forest fire.” Ramsey appeared on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” and discussed with host Bill Hemmer what he sees as the problem with the package and direct payments. (RELATED: Jen Psaki Denies That Lowering Relief Payments From $2,000 To $1,400 Is A Broken Promise From Biden) “There are some situations where folks are hurting and this thing has gotten completely out of hand. I mean, there are people’s lives who have been destroyed by this program,” Ramsey began. “Somebody needs some relief somewhere. I’m fine with that. But this has nothing to do with really helping people. This is a political gimme by progressives simply trying to buy votes.” “We know that because when you go from $10,000 in forgiveness to $50,000 in forgiveness the people who benefit are not lower income people. The vast majority of people that have an average income or less have less than $10,000 of...
    With former President Donald Trump out of office, fiscal conservatives who sat silent as the national debt exploded on his watch are rediscovering their principles. And one Fox News guest is voicing his objection to President Joe Biden’s proposed stimulus in a manner not likely to sit well with much of the working class. Appearing on America’s Newsroom Thursday, conservative financial talk radio host Dave Ramsey blasted the idea of $1,400 stimulus checks by arguing that recipients’ financial difficulties are not related directly to the pandemic. “I don’t believe in a stimulus check,” Ramsey said flatly. “Because if $600 or $1400 changes your life, you were pretty much screwed already. You’ve got other issues going on. You have a career problem, you have a debt problem, you have a relationship problem, or a mental health problem. Something else is going on if $600 changes your life.” Ramsey added that the checks amounted to “peeing on a forest fire.” On his website, Ramsey advocates having an emergency fund of at least $1,000 (with a goal of eventually saving 3-6 months of...
    We have now spent over a year battling this deadly virus - a grim milestone that has left many families mourning the loss of loved ones they so painfully were prevented from seeing. But the devastation of this pandemic cannot be counted by the number of lives lost alone. 4Justice Minister Alex Chalk says the government is committed to supporting abuse victimsCredit: Parliament.uk Sadly, it has also brought to light other hidden terrors. For victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence lockdown has been nothing short of an inescapable nightmare. Demand for helplines and webchat services have soared by 200 per cent since the first lockdown. This could be due to some victims feeling at greater risk of harm or using the time spent at home to reflect on past experiences and deciding to report abuse for the first time. For others, lockdown has meant facing the terrifying prospect of being cooped up nearly 24/7 with an abusive partner, or for some the time spent alone has forced them to confront the effects of abuse endured many years ago. To those in these...
    Heres how the real ages of the Bridgerton cast compare to their characters Best landlord insurance If you were Deshaun Watson, why wouldnt you want out of Houston? There is no hard and fast way to run the football side of an NFL franchise. Power and responsibilities are distributed differently from team to team, some having a standard general manager/head coach partnership making decisions on the roster, others letting the head coach make those decisions. But never in the history of the NFL has a team approached things the way the Houston Texans have been in the last couple of years, and the disastrous results show why. In recent days, there have been multiple reports that Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, by far the best quarterback in the franchise’s two decades of existence, is miffed at the organization and wants out just four months after signing a contract extension. It’s hard to blame him. The Washington Football Team may still hold the title as the most dysfunctional franchise in the NFL, what with the unending stories of sustained, horrific treatment...
    PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia 76ers coach Doc Rivers used his voice to condemn the riots in Washington much in the same way he denounced racial injustice in the NBA bubble as teams grappled with how to deal with issues far more important than basketball.He was invited to speak at a Joe Biden rally after the President-elect used Rivers' words in an October speech, calling for racial unity at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.SEE ALSO: Tri-state area lawmakers react to chaos at US Capitol, 'I didn't know if there were weapons'Rivers again decried the riotous mob Wednesday in Washington, though he cautioned, "democracy will prevail.""I'll say it because I don't think a lot of people want to: Could you imagine today if those were all Black people storming the Capitol and what would've happened," Rivers asked.

Like many of us, Philadelphia 76ers head coach Doc Rivers has watched the footage of rioters carrying Trump flags and wearing MAGA hats storm through the U.S. Capitol. © Provided by For The Win The footage and images of the police response that have emerged from Wednesday’s insurrection have been highly incongruous with the seriousness of what’s been happening. One clip circulating on social media shows a rioter taking a selfie with a police officer, another shows a Trump supporter carrying a lectern out of the Capitol building, presumedly as a souvenir. Yet another video shows police removing a barrier and letting the mob through the security gate onto the Capitol steps. According the New York Times, a Capitol police officer said “We’ve just got to let them do their thing now.” Rivers laid bare the fundamental difference between how police officers...
    A 'ridiculous' contract penned by a 'bridezilla' informing her bridal party of her 'expectations' has sparked widespread outrage on social media. The bride, believed to live in the US, compiled a list of 37 rules for her 10 bridesmaids stipulating what is expected of them ahead of her wedding day.  She said she was prompted to hand out the document after seeing a 'lot of posts about issues with bridesmaids' from other newlyweds online. 'It explained my expectations from beginning to end,' she posted on Facebook, alongside a photo of the contract which immediately drew widespread criticism. Two of the most outrageous rules forbid bridesmaids from gaining more than three kilos and 'intentionally' getting pregnant before the ceremony.

    NOT everyone who received the first COVID-19 relief stimulus check will receive the second one. On Sunday, US President Donald Trump signed a pandemic stimulus deal that includes $600 checks for Americans. But there's a chance that even bigger payments could be on the way with the House of Representatives passing a measure to increase the stimulus checks to $2,000. 1Not everyone will qualify for the second stimulus checksCredit: AP:Associated Press The bill now heads to the Senate, where it faces an uncertain future. But even if it gets over the line, only people under a certain income level will qualify for the payment. With the next stimulus payment, most of the rules may be the same, but if the check amount doesn't increase from $600 to $2,000, some people won't be eligible anyway, CNet reports.

    (CNN) — As new coronavirus cases explode nationwide, health officials are turning to cell phones to help slow the spread of infections. Thanks to technology available on Apple and Google phones, you can now get pop-up notifications in some states if you were close to someone who later tested positive for Covid-19. The alerts come via state health department apps that use Bluetooth technology to detect when you (or more precisely, your phone) has been in close contact with an infected person’s phone. While these apps can’t keep you safe — they only let you know after you’ve been exposed — they could prevent others from getting infected if you take precautions, such as self-quarantining, after receiving an alert. Millions of people are signing up, although these apps aren’t yet available in many states. Health officials believe the alerts could be especially helpful in cases where an infected person has been in contact with strangers — for example in a bus, train or checkout line — who wouldn’t otherwise know they were exposed.   How the notifications work   iPhones and Android devices contain constantly changing anonymous codes that ping nearby...

    From the press tribune above the Estadio Azteca field it was impossible to discern the trickery Diego Maradona had performed. From the same location, it was impossible not to marvel at the brilliant maneuverability that Maradona also performed. That was the paradox presented by Maradona, the great Argentine player who died Wednesday at age 60. He could be magical in positive and negative ways. His most famous — and infamous — game came against England at the then-majestic stadium in Mexico City, a World Cup quarterfinal in 1986. The lure of being there was as strong for media members as it was for the 100,000 or so fans on hand. Not since Pele in his prime had there been such a must-see footballer on such a superlative stage. Adding to the electric atmosphere were the legions of Argentina fans in their blue-and-white striped jerseys, waving their flags and chanting tributes to “El Gran Diego.” There even were some shouts of “El Dios Diego.” If only they truly knew. Soccer at its highest level is a game of intrigue, 11...
    While it may be impossible to pinpoint a coronavirus infection down to the time and place that it happened, health experts have advised next steps to take after suspected exposure. In the days leading up to Tuesday’s election and even at the polls, officials urged American voters to wear masks properly over the nose and mouth, social distance and practice hand hygiene to lower the risk of virus spread. However, a recent CDC report from the Delaware primary revealed that only 54 percent of poll workers said voters wore masks correctly over the nose and mouth. Not to mention, the agency gave the green light to quarantined, coronavirus-ill people to vote in-person: “Voters have the right to vote, regardless of whether they are sick or in quarantine,” the agency posted on its webpage, which was updated as of Nov. 1. Whether you believe you were exposed to coronavirus while voting in-person or elsewhere, the CDC has rolled out and continues to refine, related guidance. The virus causing COVID-19 disease is likely most contagious before symptoms begin to show, per...
    This is the shocking moment ranting anti-abortion protesters call a British film-maker 'Jihad Jane' and accuse her of 'dressing like a w***e' outside a clinic in Alabama. Deeyah Khan was attempting to interview demonstrators who besiege the Alabama Women's Center in Huntsville earlier this year for a new documentary.  'You know if we were out here enforcing Sharia law, we'd go ahead and take you around the corner and rape you.' A furious Christian fundamentalist wearing a 'Repent or Perish' t-shirt tells Ms Khan in the footage. 'If we were a good Muslim. If we were a good Muslim group we'd take you and your little immodest pants there around the corner and we'd have our way with you.' He adds: 'You want Shariah law? We got Jihad Jane right here.'

    Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said that if Americans are weary of coronavirus lockdowns and the fallout from socioeconomic restrictions related to the pandemic, they should vote for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Election Day instead of President Donald Trump. "If you're tired of lockdowns, or you're tired of wearing masks, or you wish you were in church this morning or watching college football or your kids were in-person instruction, it is time for change in this country, and that's why we've got to elect Joe Biden," Whitmer told Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press" Sunday.EARLIER: @GovWhitmer says “if you’re tired of lockdowns or you’re tired of wearing masks or you wish you were in ch… https://t.co/k9jfI0v2mN — Meet the Press (@Meet the Press)1603031325.0What else did Whitmer say?Whitmer blasted Trump during the interview, accusing the president of inciting violence and not doing his job.

    President Donald Trump envisions “riots like you have never seen” if Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is elected in November, Trump said in an interview with Laura Ingraham set to air Monday evening. “If it weren’t Donald Trump’s America — to just use the expression, as I’m president — you would have riots like you’ve never seen,” Trump said in footage previewed by Fox News’ John Roberts on Monday afternoon. “The Democrats have lost control of the radical left,” Trump added. “Don’t forget, Biden was not going to come out of his basement until the election.” The comments come the night before Trump is expected to visit the scene of unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and hours after Biden whacked the president over the issue in a speech in Pittsburgh. “These are not images of some imagined Joe Biden America in the future,” Biden said, response to images Trump has conjured of a more violent America under Biden’s prospective administration. “These are images of Donald Trump’s America today. He keeps telling you if only he was president, it wouldn’t happen....

    On The Five, panelist  Jesse Watters warned that news of the arrest of longtime Jeffrey Epstein confidante Ghislaine Maxwell should have anyone “involved in any way with something illegal” with the pair “worried.” But while Maxwell and Epstein were notably friends with numerous politicians, socialites, and businessmen, including former President Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, Watters mentioned the former numerous times during his discussion. but omitted the latter’s name completely. Maxwell’s arrest by the FBI in Branford, New Hampshire on Thursday sent shockwaves through the media, as she had reportedly been in hiding for months. Epstein was convicted of soliciting a prostitute and sex with underage girl in 2008 and arrested again last summer and charged with sex trafficking before his shocking suicide while in federal custody launched an investigation into the prison guards as well as a thousand conspiracy theories.

    The U.S. recorded its highest number of coronavirus cases in a single day on Wednesday, though deaths and death rates continue to fall. The data continued an upward trend that began earlier this month, and President Donald Trump’s critics have pounced on the news as evidence that he mismanaged the COVID-19 pandemic. This graph might be the most damning data ever concerning Trumps leadership. We are a superpower, one of the richest countries in the world, with some of the best scientists, innovators, entrepreneurs, universities, army, government officials in the world.

What else was going on in early June in the U.S.? The rise in cases matches exactly what we would expect to see from the large...
    Walking away from a meaningful relationship is always going to be difficult. When it wasn't your decision, a break up can be even harder. Sometimes, people are oblivious that their partner is unhappy in their relationship, whereas in other cases, there are tensions bubbling under the surface for a long time before things reach a breaking point. Breakups are one of the most traumatic things that can happen in our adult lives — but we still embark on new relationships, because the pay-off is worth it despite the risks. When something threatens our connections, primal feelings can fire up, and a break up can feel so devastating thanks to how we're wired both biologically and psychologically. Here are 14 reasons it's so hard to let go, even if the relationship was totally wrong for you in the first place. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.  
    President Donald Trump declined to directly answer questions when asked about his coronavirus testing remarks during his Saturday campaign rally in Tulsa. Scripps TV Washington correspondent Joe St. George conducted an interview with Trump on Monday and brought up the president’s remarks in which he said he ordered his team to “slow” coronavirus testing. “Does that mean somebody watching this right now on their local news is not going to get a test?” St. George asked. “We do more testing than any country in the world by far,” Trump answered, sidestepping the core of the question. “Every time you do a test, as you do more tests, it shows more and more cases.” Trump went on by comparing America’s coronavirus testing to that of other countries, saying “if other countries aren’t doing, or if we did slow it down, we wouldn’t show nearly as many cases.” As Trump boasted about the U.S.’s numbers, St. George pressed him “Did you ask to slow it down?” St. George said again. Trump took a pause, then dodged the question completely. “If it...
    Atlanta (CNN)From meats to vegetables, US health officials are warning people to avoid some foods for various reasons, including E. coli and lack of inspection.Here are the foods to stay away from:Ground beef productsA New Jersey company recalled nearly 43,000 pounds of raw ground beef products over fears of E. coli contamination.

    NEW YORK — As New York City prepared to reopen after a more than two-month coronavirus shutdown, officials on Sunday lifted a curfew that was put in place amid protests of police brutality and racial injustice. But they also urged that demonstrators be tested for COVID-19. “Get a test. Get a test,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged people who have been participating in rallies and marches in memory of George Floyd. He said the state planned to open 15 testing sites dedicated to protesters so they can get results quickly. PHOTOS: Largely peaceful protests against police brutality march on “I would act as if you were exposed, and I would tell people you are interacting with, assume I am positive for the virus,” Cuomo added. The call is similar to what officials in cities like Seattle, San Francisco and Atlanta have made following massive demonstrations, with free testing set up for protesters who may have been exposed to the virus. Yet in South Carolina, where some cities have seen daily protests over Floyd’s death, participants said they felt...
    NEW YORK -- The spark that started the U.S. coronavirus epidemic arrived during a three-week window from mid-January to early February, before the nation halted travel from China, according to the most comprehensive federal study to date of when the virus began spreading.That means anyone in the U.S. who thought they had the virus in December or early January probably had the flu, public health researchers said.Will there be a 2nd wave of COVID-19 infections?
