    A Ukrainian refugee who was dumped by her British lover has been arrested after trying to kick down his front door, screaming: 'I love you, Tony!' Police were called and found Sofiia Karkadym, 22, in the bushes after she made a desperate attempt to try and win back 30-year-old security guard Tony Garnett.  But Tony - who made headlines when he left his partner and children for IT manager Sofiia after they welcomed her into their family home when war broke out in Ukraine - refused to open the door. Sofiia had allegedly been told by police to stay away after Tony called officers to an earlier bust-up on Saturday night when he told her their four-month relationship was over. She left the home they had previously shared, but returned last night when neighbours heard her yelling at Tony outside, and dialled 999 after she repeatedly kicked the door. Officers arrived in two vehicles with blue lights flashing, but she scaled a garden wall and disappeared into the night. Police are said to have searched gardens and local streets with...
    The speech Biden gave earlier this month, in which the president characterized "MAGA" and Trump supporters as anti-American "semi-fascists" who "put their own pursuit of power above all else," only fueled those accusations. "I think [that's] what’s ultimately driving his politics,” said Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). “If you own a gun, display the flag and voted for Trump, the president’s going to call you an extremist, and it appears the FBI is going to use the numbers to satisfy that narrative that the president laid out." The FBI has issued a statement, unequivocally denying that the agency is targeting Republicans or supporters of the former president. "The FBI aggressively investigates threats posed by domestic violent extremists,” an FBI spokesperson said. “We do not investigate ideology, and we do not investigate particular cases based on the political views of the individuals involved. The FBI will continue to pursue threats or acts of violence, regardless of the underlying motivation or sociopolitical goal."
    FINDING an electric car charger in 2031 will be 98 per cent harder than it is today, a new report has shown. Despite the ban on new petrol and diesel car sales set to come in from 2030 - it's thought Britain’s infrastructure will struggle to accommodate electric vehicles. 1Electric car chargers will be harder to come by in 10 years Last year, there were 266 electric vehicles (EVs) to each public charger in the UK, but a study by GoCompare Car Insurance says this will rise to 527 cars per charger by 2031.  This means that charger availability will be almost half of what it was in 2021.  The reason for this is that the rate of new charger installations won’t be fast enough to keep up with the uptake of EVs over the next decade.  So, despite more charger installations, the number of EVs purchased will outweigh the rate new charging units are fit.  As a result, there’ll be a worse ratio of chargers to EVs, making it much harder to find somewhere to power up.

    Kyiv, Ukraine (CNN)Outside an already overwhelmed morgue in Kyiv, morticians swing open the back door of a refrigerated truck, and the heavy stench of death fills the air. Dressed in full protective suits and masks they lower body bags, one by one, onto gurneys and roll them inside. Investigators stand back, clipboards in hand, waiting to start their grueling work.Inside each bag is a "John Doe," a person whose remains have been left in the ruins of war for weeks and are so badly decomposed that they are unrecognizable. "Of course, it's hard. But this is not an ordinary job. It is a desire to help," said Olena Tolkachova, chief of family services for the Azov Regiment. Thousands of Ukraine's war dead are unidentified. Police, soldiers, investigators, morticians and forensic experts — desperate to return remains to loved ones — are working tirelessly to find out who they are, so their bodies can be laid properly to rest.

    Getty Images Chris Harrison said he's helping friends find love. Chris Harrison may no longer be the host of “The Bachelor” franchise, but that doesn’t mean that he’s completely given up on helping people find love. Harrison left ABC in June 2021 after a controversy erupted during an interview he did with former “Bachelorette” star Rachel Lindsay. After receiving heavy criticism, Harrison decided to step away from the franchise. “I have consulted with Warner Bros. and ABC and will be stepping aside for a period of time and will not join for the After the Final Rose special,” he captioned an Instagram post, which has since been deleted.

    A MUM has revealed her frustration at trying to find school uniforms big enough for her six-year-old daughter who is twice the average size for her age. Mum Chloe Owens, 33, says she can't find a uniform that would fit her daughter Lola, who weighs 6st. 3Mum Chloe has spoken out about her frustration after she couldn't find school uniform that fits her daughterCredit: Stewart Williams And Chloe, a former sales manager from Grays, Essex, said she was angry and frustrated as she was forced to even look in the women's sections but had not been successful in finding anything appropriate for her daughter.

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) stated that the Biden administration isn’t actually going to reinstitute the Migrant Protection Protocols, commonly known as Remain in Mexico, “They’re actually just trying to slow-walk it until they can find a way to kill it.” Roy said, “[A] federal judge…said that the federal government needed to do its job and follow the law and actually continue to follow the Migrant Protection Protocols. The administration is actually working actively to undermine that. At the current moment, they’re actually trying to rescind the program by following the procedures the judge cited that they failed to follow to start with. Meanwhile, they’re going to put out news saying, well, we’re doing what the judge said. So, we’re going to do the Migrant Protection Protocol. But they’re really not. They’re actually just trying to slow-walk it until they can find a way to kill it.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

At a laboratory inside a Google data center in Mayes County, Oklahoma, researchers spent the fall of 2019 disassembling old hard disk drives by hand in order to extract a two-inch-long component known as the magnet assembly. Consisting of two powerful rare earth magnets, the magnet assembly is a critical muscle within the hard drive, controlling an actuator arm that allows the device to read and write data. Over the course of six weeks, the scientists harvested 6,100 of these magnetic muscles, all of them effectively good as new. The magnets were then shipped to a hard drive manufacturing facility in Thailand, where they were placed into new drives and, eventually, redeployed to data centers around the world. This is a far cry from what happens to the estimated 22 million hard disk drives that age out of North American data...
    More from: Andrew Marchand How NBC is approaching herculean task of broadcasting fanless Olympics ESPN may leave local radio business as WFAN dominates ESPN’s $3 million offer to Maria Taylor may not let her finish NBA Finals ESPN, Rachel Nichols and Maria Taylor all look bad in this drama Maria Taylor, ESPN facing possible divorce over Stephen A. Smith money The Olympics for TV executives is upon us. The main event is to seamlessly maintain viewers for regular television while transitioning them to the direct-to-consumer world. So far, NBC is not earning gold. Although NBC is presenting the Games with its usual sound, though saccharine-laced, coverage, it feels like you are doing a heptathlon trying to find what you want to watch.  Everything is on, but nothing can be found. As the philosopher Chris “Mad Dog” Russo said, “If you are going to make it difficult and you are going to make me work for it and pay for it to see it, I’m out of there.” And so fewer people are watching these Olympics. The ratings are down...

Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad I guess if we're not distinguishing what level of track and field we're talking about, then really everyone has track speed.  But elite track speed? That's rare. Outrunning some fellow NFLers on a kick return or an opponent who thinks he has an easy pick-6 does not a track star make.

    Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said Tuesday that the Biden administration is looking for more space to house the record number of migrant children crossing the US-Mexican border. Becerra also said the current shelters are nearly at capacity after a record 172,000 migrants crossed the border in March, which included almost 19,000 children and teenagers traveling without a parent.  'They keep coming. We keep having to find more space,' he told CBS 'This Morning.'  When children are apprehended at the border they are first held in a temporary custody by US Customs and Border Patrol while they are processed. Then they are transferred to HHS, which runs shelters for them until a parent or guardian can be found. 'These are kids. And regardless of what their ultimate outcome, whether they're returned to their home country or not, we have an obligation at HHS to make sure we take care of their health and their well-being while they're temporarily with us,' Becerra said.

REUTERS/Kelly Defina In his press conference, Thiem admitted to being behind in preparation for the tournament. His 2021 form has been uninspiring after a great end to the 2020 season, and now he looks to finally regain some ground in Dubai. “Definitely, I’m not at the top of my game right now. Australia was pretty strange & also tough to digest in all aspects. I’m still trying to find the top of my game again.

    New York (CNN Business)With the movie business upended during the pandemic and tilting more towards streaming than cineplexes, Hollywood is rethinking its business model. One significant debate is how long a gap there should be between a film's theatrical release and its availability on streaming services.Although some studios have tried releasing films simultaneously in theaters and on streaming platforms, that model can undercut the millions, or even billions, of dollars a movie might earn at the box office. But it's unlikely studios will revert back to the pre-pandemic model of waiting multiple months between a movie's theatrical release and its availability on-demand.So is there a "Goldilocks Zone" for theaters and streaming? If so what would it look like?Studios are trying to figure that out, and now Paramount has added yet another variable into the equation.Search for the sweet spotRead MoreOn Wednesday, ViacomCBS (VIACA) announced that certain Paramount Picture films, including blockbusters such as the upcoming action film "Mission: Impossible 7" and the horror flick "A Quiet Place Part 2" will stream on its new service, Paramount+, just 30 to 45...
    New York (CNN Business)To understand the state of cable news at the beginning of the Biden era, check out the 7 p.m. Eastern hour on weekdays.This month last year Fox News was far and away No. 1 in total viewers and the key 25- to 54-year-old demographic at 7 p.m. This February, Fox is a distant No. 3 behind CNN and MSNBC.There are numerous reasons: Donald Trump's loss, the GOP's disarray, savvy programming choices by rival channels and the rise of Newsmax, among others. The result is that Fox is holding on-air tryouts for a new host. And none of the candidates are really clicking.Guest hosts are trying outAs a network, Fox normally oozes confidence. Hosts and executives normally hold up Fox's ratings victories as a sword and shield. But the end of the Trump era has been disorienting for the Murdoch family's media empire.

    Bradley Cortright February 17, 2021 0 Comments Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ (I-Vt.) former campaign press secretary Briahna Joy Gray says President Joe Biden is using the “specter of the occasional Harvard student” to “justify” not erasing up to $50,000 in student loan debt per borrower. During a town hall event hosted by CNN on Tuesday, Biden claimed that he does not have the authority to unilaterally cancel up to $50,000 in student loan debt.  But during an interview on The Hill TV’s “Rising,” Gray disputed that as she said, “It’s not true, Joe Biden has the authority to cancel all student loan debt.” She claimed that the government now sees students taking out loans for college as “risky behavior.” Gray went on the suggest Biden is using the “specter of the occasional Harvard student as an excuse not to cancel debt” for the “overwhelming majority” of students who did not go to Harvard. “It is almost as though Joe Biden is trying to find the most unsympathetic character in the world to justify not pursuing a very sympathetic program,” she added....

    The deficit-stricken United Kingdom on Tuesday allowed the resumption of cross-channel goods shipments to find a way out of the crisis with France, facing the spread of a highly contagious variant of the new corona virus. The strong cycle of this new virus in Great Britain, with its prevalence at 40 to 70% higher than the United Kingdom estimates for the World Health Organization (WHO), changed the outcome of the year in the puzzle for Prime Minister Boris Johnson. To reach a post-Brexit trade deal with Brussels within 10 days of the deadline, he had to reconcile 16 million Britons in the disaster over the weekend, with its Christmas family reunited. He now has to manage the decision of dozens of countries, including France, to ban imports from the United Kingdom, which will threaten trade and have no immediate effect, causing a shortage of new products in the coming days. . At a meeting of its ambassadors scheduled for Tuesday, the European Union (EU) sought to “re-open the border in a coordinated manner,” a European diplomatic source said. This includes...

Netflix confirmed that it's testing out a shuffle button, which will allow viewers to have the service randomly select a movie or TV show.The button, which appears below a user's profile and on the home screen, will choose a selection based on viewing history, preferences, and playlists.

    USF reportedly doesn’t want to keep paying former football coach Charlie Strong. According to FootballScoop, the university and NCAA representatives are interviewing people tied to the program to see if Strong ever let analysts do on-field coaching, which would violate NCAA rules. If he violated NCAA rules, it could allow USF to stop paying the nearly $3 million owed to him. Strong was fired after three seasons. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) USF released a statement acknowledging there was an investigation, but failed to provide details “in order to protect the integrity of the investigation.” The school told FootballScoop, “the university continues to abide by the terms of its agreement with Mr. Strong.” You can go ahead and inject this right into my veins.
