    UFC legend Matt Sera has retired as a cornerman after feeling ‘a little disrespected’ by Aljamain Sterling’s UFC 259 snub. Sterling challenged for the bantamweight belt against Petr Yan, and did so with Serra’s long-time partner, Ray Longo, as head coach. Getty Images - Getty 2 Al Iaquinta, Aljamain Sterling, Matt Sera and Ray Longo But amid the coronavirus pandemic, the American moved out to Las Vegas for a large stretch of his camp, linking up with coach Eric Nicksick. As a result, Serra found out secondhand that he would not be working Sterling’s corner, and feels now is the time to pack it in altogether. He said on UFC Unfiltered: “My thing is, going forward, I think it’s better to make an exit on a high note. “I will always be in this kid’s corner – just not physically, and not by my choice, by the choices that were made here. “So I’m just going to retire altogether from the corner thing.” Despite understanding Sterling’s need for a new coach, and while...
    DONALD Trump has blasted Joe Biden over "spiraling tsunami at the border" and said illegal immigrants from every corner will descend. The former president released the statement on Friday afternoon, stating the border is "totally out of control thanks to the disastrous leadership of Joe Biden." 1Trump has slammed Biden "Our great Border Patrol and ICE agents have been disrespected, demeaned and mocked by the Biden Administration," Trump slammed. He added that a "mass incursion" is happening with immigrants coming into the country - "many have criminal records, and many others have and are spreading covid." The news comes just hours after it was revealed that Biden asked senior officials to travel to the US-Mexico border and brief him on the influx of children, a White House spokesman said on Thursday. Biden’s administration is facing criticism from Democrats and activists who say unaccompanied migrant children and families are being held too long in detention centers instead of being released while their asylum applications are considered.

    While families, couples and friends relax on many types of sofas, interior experts have revealed that each style, fabric and size could suggest something different about an individual's personality.  Experts from sofa and carpet specialist, ScS, have explained what your sofa really says about you, based on style, material and colour. Among the findings include that owners of Chesterfield style sofas are more likely to be stylish and outgoing, while organised personalities suit a corner sofa.  Amy Forster, Content Editor at ScS, commented: 'Your choice of sofa may say more about you than you realise!  Our sofas sit on prime view in our home, so it is only natural that there may be something more behind what we choose to display.

    JOSEPH PREZIOSO/AFP A CNN photojournalist has written a piece detailing his harrowing experience on January 6th during the Capitol riots. Many lawmakers have come forward talking about their experiences when the mob stormed the Capitol. On Monday Joshua Replogle shared what it was like from the perspective of a journalist closely covering it. Replogle’s piece, titled “Is this how I die?”, likens what he witnessed and felt firsthand to the accounts he’s heard from shooting survivors he has interviewed, especially the Parkland students. He describes huddling with others in an office and “hiding from the source of the roar filtering through the walls… the voices of thousands who want to hurt me.” Replogle goes point-by-point through how the day started with him and his producer doing their jobs to the moment they realized they had to get moving for their own safety: My producer is pacing and swearing. My best guess: She’s torn between the increasing danger and attempting to organize reporting. My focus is outside. The roar builds. “Josh?… Josh! … JOSH!” My producer pleads with me, she peers...
    CNN’s Anderson Cooper sarcastically skewered the increasingly desperate and wholly ineffective “great negotiator” Donald Trump, who pleaded with Georgia’s secretary of state for nearly an hour to “find” just enough votes to overturn the presidential election in that state. All of Trump’s stated reasons for doing this were predicated on thoroughly debunked conspiracy theories and were patiently dismissed by state officials during the call. Mocking the president for having the impulse control of a “refrigerator magnet,” Cooper’s devoted the opening monologue of his Monday night show to mocking Trump and the “fresh hell” he is inflicting on the country, noting that GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said he would not have released the call, but Trump began tweeting a false representations of it. “That’s the great negotiator? The great dealmaker? That’s the Art of the Deal?” Cooper said, after playing an audio clip, his face unable to mask his bemusement. “This is a scared bully pushed into a corner of his own making desperately trying to get out. The president like all bullies also tries threatening Georgia officials on the call.” Cooper then played further...
    LONDON (AP) — Tomas Soucek scored for the third time in his last five Premier League games to earn West Ham a 2-2 draw against Brighton, which threw away the lead twice at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday. The giant Czech Republic midfielder saw the ball ricochet into the net off the side of his face after Brighton captain Lewis Dunk only got a glancing touch to a clearing header from a corner. Dunk had earlier put Brighton ahead for the second time with a goal that also had a hint of fortune about it. It also came from a corner, with Dunk prodding home from close range after the ball bounced into his path off his hip following an attempted headed clearance from Andriy Yarmolenko. If Brighton had held on, the south-coast team would have jumped four points clear of the bottom three. Neal Maupay gave Brighton the lead in the 44th with a shot from eight yards (meters) after he latched onto a loose ball in the box. Ben Johnson equalized with his first goal in senior football....
    A new pass tracking database and accompanying app allows us to track the locations of passers and shooters on catch-and-shoot 3s, on the hunt for patterns. Everybody loves catch-and-shoot 3-point attempts. They are some of the most valuable shots in basketball and coaches have dreamt up actions, principles, and entire offenses designed to create as many of these juicy looks as possible. Across the league, shooters made 37 percent of these opportunities during the 2019-20 season (the equivalent of a healthy 1.11 points per shot). Harden sets up more wide-open 3-point attempts in the corner to his left (your right), whereas he’s more likely to set up a contested 3-pointer on the other side of the court. Interestingly, that’s NOT his natural passing target — as he prefers to use one-handed passes to hook and sling the ball across his body towards his right (your left). This could be an indication that he’s more likely to attempt this uncomfortable pass when he sees a wide-open teammate camping out in that corner. Another feature of the app is the option to...
    CHORZOW, Poland (AP) — The Netherlands came from a goal down to beat Poland 2-1 in the Nations League on Wednesday, but it was not enough to earn last year’s runner-up a place in the finals. The result in Poland was ultimately irrelevant as Italy beat Bosnia 2-0 in Sarajevo to win Group 1 by a single point ahead of the Dutch and advance to the Final Four. Kamil Jozwiak gave Poland the lead when he outpaced Davy Klaassen in a sprint from the halfway line, cut inside Stefan de Vrij and rolled the ball into the goal off the inside of the post in just the sixth minute. Memphis Depay equalized from the penalty spot in the 77th and captain Georginio Wijnaldum deflected a corner into the net in the 84th. The Netherlands, which lost the final last year in the first edition of the Nations League, made four changes from the team that beat Bosnia 3-1 on Sunday. Star striker Robert Lewandoski was fit enough to start for Poland, although he was substituted at halftime. Apart from...

    BUCKTOWN — Neighbors who want a beloved Bucktown dive bar to survive the winter can help by buying a cup of coffee or a bottle of wine. After a citywide ban on indoor drinking, The Corner Bar pivoted last week, becoming a one-stop neighborhood shop for booze, coffee and snacks. Located at 2224 N. Leavitt St., the bar’s “bodega” will sell hot Dark Matter coffee, cold brew, beer, wine, liquor, snacks and cigarettes. Without help from customers, dive bars like The Corner Bar will struggle to survive the winter, longtime manager Leslie LaSota said. “This is home. We call it the ‘living room of Bucktown.’ It’s been around so long, people say it’s like the TV show ‘Cheers,'” she said. “We’re so lucky for the people who walk through that door. People in their 70s, newly 21-year-olds … . They come in here and they just get along.” A patron purchases Dark Matter Coffee from The Corner Bar’s Bucktown bodega.

    A telecommunications company is set to receive $6.3 million in federal funding so more Coloradans in the southwest part of the state have access to broadband. U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., said Tuesday that the funding, provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), will mean 1,600 residents, in Dolores, San Miguel, and Montezuma Counties will be connected to broadband. Some businesses, farms, fire stations, and post offices in the counties will also receive broadband access, Gardner's office said. “The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the digital divide that exists in many of our rural communities, and it’s more important than ever to keep Colorado residents connected to reliable and speedy broadband, no matter which corner of the state they happen to live in,” Gardner, who serves on the Senate's Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, said in a statement. Utah-based Emery Telecommunications will receive the $6.3 million via the USDA's ReConnect program to build a fiber network. “Southwest Colorado has some of the most challenging terrain in the nation, as the San Juan peaks are a...
    FIFA 21 was fully released on October 9th and it's only taken a day for someone to figure out how to score directly from a corner. Crossing has been tweaked massively for this year's edition, as has defending. 1Easy peasy....... aim the analog stick to the back post, full power and you're on your way! YouTuber Wrzzer has found a way to catch opponents out from a corner kick, leaving defenders like Virgil van Dijk and Kalidou Koulibaly watching on as players whip a ball towards the back post. For the trick to work you'll need to use players with high curve stats, for example, Hakim Ziyech (90) or Lionel Messi (93). The next step requires you to aim the circle ever so slightly behind the back post and do not forget to use the left analog stick to apply curve. When it comes to the amount of power you need to apply on the corner kick, hold down the square button to max power if you're a PS4 player or the X button if you're an Xbox player. The...
    UFC star Mike Perry has been offered £4,500 by porn star Kendra Lust to have her in his corner for his next fight. But unsurprisingly that hasn't gone down too well with the 29-year-old's stunning girlfriend Latory Gonzalez. 8Porn star Kendra Lust wants to be in Mike Perry's corner for his next fight Credit: Getty Images - Getty 8Kendra has starred in the porn films F*** Me Silly, Miss Tushy and Let's Bang the Babysitter 3Credit: Instagram 8Mike Perry's girlfriend Latory Gonzalez was quick to shut down Lust's offerCredit: Getty Images - Getty After Lust commented on Twitter that she would 'pay $6k just to be in his corner', Gonzalez was quick to respond back with: "Definitely not."

    Darren Till is slowly becoming the most savage UFC fighter on Twitter. After Mike Perry announced that he would take in the highest bidder in his corner for his next fight, Till was willing to pay $5,000 for the spot. However, the Brit soon started threatening to throw the towel if he got into Perry’s corner. ‘Platinum’ Perry made news in his last fight as he went inside the octagon with only his girlfriend in his corner. Despite notching up a win, a one-woman corner wasn’t something that he was looking to continue with. Therefore, for his next fight against former welterweight champ Robbie Lawler, Perry held an open auction where the highest bidder would get to corner him. Enter Darren Till. The Brit had a beef with Perry which, at a point in time, became very intense. Consequently, Till was, reportedly, very serious about cornering Perry. Couple days ago, @PlatinumPerry tweeted “whoever gives me the most money” can corner him along with his pregnant girlfriend for his upcoming fight vs. Robbie Lawler. Well, @darrentill2 tells me he is dead...
    I don’t spend a lot of time in the heart of downtown these days. I think this is true of many folks who live outside of the city center, especially when so many of us have had to work from home. But this summer and fall, as one silver lining to the pandemic, riding the city streets has become uniquely pleasant and peaceful, especially for cyclists (and scooterists). Cars are fewer and drivers seem less impatient, and with the various expanded outdoor dining options, many streets provide a fun block-party feel. Another positive: The price point that sometimes keeps me away from the finer downtown establishments can be rendered moot by a happy hour, depending on what you're looking for.

    Epic Games One of the strangest challenges of Fortnite Week 5 is the one that requires you to drive all the way from Slurpy Swamp to Catty Corner in under four minutes without getting out of the car. On paper, that might sound pretty easy, but given the fact there are so many different routes you can take, it might be a bit more difficult than you’d think. When you couple that with the fact that other players may be attempting the same thing, or that you might get involved in a fight, then you might find yourself getting quite frustrated. Luckily, there is an optimal path for you to take, and if you’re able to stick to it then you should have no issues finishing off this challenge and moving on to some of the others.What’s The Best Path?

Johnny Walker defeated Ryan Spann via knockout (strikes), Round 1 – 2:43 at UFC Vegas 11 on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2020, live from UFC Apex in Las Vegas, NV.

They have had that now for generations."We spend a lot of time together, the 13 brothers and sisters, the 53 grandchildren plus their children. And all of this is because our grandfather and grandmother taught us what unity and love was," says grandson and company director Joshua Gonzalez.From the fields of agave in Jalisco, Mexico grandfather Don Miguel and his 13 children came north to Orange County.

    Becki Falwell confirmed Tuesday that she had an affair but denied allegations that her husband, Jerry Falwell Jr., was involved as one man has claimed.

Neither of the Falwells named 29-year-old Giancarlo Granda, according to the Post, though Granda alleged that he had a sex with Becki Falwell over the course of six years and said that Jerry Falwell sometimes “enjoyed watching from the corner of the room,” Reuters reported Monday.

    Isaac Yosef was in Israel when the shelter-in-place first took hold of San Francisco. He caught one of the last planes home on March 16, took a look around his eerily empty SoMA eatery, Frena Bakery & Cafe, which is usually packed with customers waiting for bagels and burekas, and knew he had to do something. Fast. “Downtown was dead,” Yosef recalls. “Half of our business was corporate catering and that was gone, too. We quickly decided that if people can’t come to Frena, Frena will come to them.” During the pandemic, pop-ups and other forms of geographic outreach are becoming an essential way for established San Francisco chefs to reach customers outside the city. Some, like Frena, drive a van to corners across Northern California. Others, like China Live’s George Chen, have opened ghost kitchens —commercial kitchens for delivery-only fare — from Berkeley to Belmont, so loyal customers who used to drive into Chinatown for his dumplings can enjoy them in the comfort of their homes. The tactic is not new, especially for Frena. Before opening their brick and...

    Connor O’Neal and Shawn D’Amario met in Colorado Springs in 2013. Both of their fathers had recently died, and the new friends bonded over their loss, finding three ways of coping: drinking, fishing and playing music. Every morning, they'd hold down a corner on Tejon Street in the Springs, belting out their ragged punk-infused country and raising money for beer; they'd fish in the afternoons and hit open-mic nights in the evenings. They named themselves the Tejon Street Corner Thieves, and never stopped playing. “It was a coping mechanism for us, and we quickly realized that live music is a coping mechanism for pretty much everyone who goes to shows," recalls O'Neal. "We fell more and more in love with performing as time went on. We just never stopped. Since then, we’ve had 'breakthroughs' as far as media and community recognition went, but our outlook hasn’t really changed. We play for ourselves and for the people who need a break from the daily grind. We love being that outlet for people.”Related Stories Vwillz Plans to Become the Face of Colorado...
    Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, 1956. During my early teenage years, I grew up listening to guys in my neighborhood who were hanging out on street corners singing, “shooby dooby wap wa naa … ” in three, four, and five part harmonies. Some of us girls even formed groups of our own. The music we now call “doo-wop,” which gets played on oldies stations and streaming music channels, was uniquely ours. We all thrilled to the sound of what seemed like hundreds of groups whose 45rpm records were played on Black radio stations across the nation. Before I was even close to being a teenager in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s, I can remember dancing to groups like The Dubs, The Charts, The Five Pennies, and The Flamingos with my poodle-skirt wearing older cousin and her friends as they invented new dances like the slop and the bop, and the Madison to go with the fast tunes. The older kids did slow drags and “the grind” under blue lights at basement hookie parties, falling in and out of love with each other. I was too young...

That said, we’re turning a corner,” Scalia told "America's Newsroom." Scalia said that last week, for the first time since February, the number of continuing claims for unemployment declined. “And that decline might have been as much as 3.9 million, so, that’s very good science.
