    Many people on the internet seem to have come to an agreement that Martin Scorsese's 1973 film Goncharov is the 'greatest mafia movie after made' - the only problem is, it doesn't actually exist. That's right, social media users have completely made the flick up - creating fake movie posters, a cast list, and even a detailed plot line, and the made-up Italian mafia movie has now become an elaborate inside joke between thousands of people around the globe. Tumblr and Twitter users have spent hours discussing their favorite scenes and sharing memories associated with watching the movie.  They have even reminisced about their first impressions and swooned over the exciting twists and turns - all of which were completely fabricated. It all started last year, when someone shared a picture of a pair of pair of boots that they had ordered online to Tumblr.  Sewed onto the inside of the shoes where the tag should have been was an ad for a movie called Goncharov. It said, '"The greatest mafia movie ever made." Martin Scorsese presents, Goncharov.' 'I got these...
    There is no World Cup artefact more iconic than the Argentina shirt Diego Maradona wore when he applied the 'Hand of God' in 1986 but like everything else in Qatar, it is a commodity — bought for £7million from the former England international Steve Hodge at a Sotheby's London auction six months ago, to sit in an exhibition at this tournament. The scene yesterday morning outside the Khalifa International Stadium, which exhibits this legendary jersey, said everything about the confected and artificial nature of this plastic World Cup. A crowd of 20 people, this correspondent included, gathered to see it, having paid £23 — yes, £23 — for a digital ticket which came with orders to arrive at the appointed hour. There were Germans, Mexicans, Irish, Tunisian, an Argentina-supporting Indian and others. All football mad. Most wearing replica shirts. Yet there was to be no access. An utterly unfathomable World Cup security rule decrees that ticketholders must be driven just a few hundred yards from some turnstiles, across the stadium perimeter, to see the shirt at the Qatar Olympic and...
    Piers Morgan claimed that 'even Messi knows' that Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest footballer in history after sharing a hilarious picture on Thursday night. Ronaldo took part in Portugal's World Cup opener with Ghana and made history by becoming the first player ever to score in five consecutive World Cup competitions. As the 37-year-old celebrated with his trademark 'SIU' celebration, he wandered in-front of a banner featuring his Argentinian counterpart and Morgan took the opportunity to share the moment with a cleverly worded caption. Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated in-front of a Lionel Messi banner after scoring against Ghana Piers Morgan (R) was quick to suggest 'Messi knows' Ronaldo is the best player of all time Taking to his social media on Thursday, Morgan wrote: 'Even Messi knows' with a goat emoji added at the end to represent the acronym; greatest of all time.  Veteran forward Ronaldo netted from the spot just after the hour mark to break the deadlock against Ghana in their first group game on Thursday evening.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Cristiano Ronaldo...

Unearthed news footage shows worried commuters complaining that an epidemic of violent crime was had left them afraid to travel.

    Sean Hannity expressed deep concern on Thursday night that Democrats will attempt to fundamentally alter American democracy. Hannity is a fervent supporter and friend of former President Donald Trump, who infamously tried to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Trump’s actions culminated in the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol. Guest Mark Levin put the upcoming congressional elections in stark terms. “If you don’t vote in 19 days you’re gonna lose your country,” he declared. “It’s that simple.” Hannity expounded upon Levin’s comment and warned that the Democratic Party is intent on changing the country’s system of government. He did not say whether the change would come in the form of a Trump-style insurrection at the headquarters of one of the three branches of government: Let me add one thing. If the Democrats did win, what does that mean for the country? As bad as things are now, all the issues you touched on. All the issues I’m touching on. Think about this. We get the elimination of the legislative filibuster. Then we get court-packing. Then we get D.C. statehood....
    "There are so many socioeconomic differences in the country," said Chelsea Carter, a Democrat who took part in the poll. "It really depends where you were born on the strata," she said. "When you really look at what has given you a leg up, it is people who were able to support and supplement my life in a way that isn't fair," she remarked, pointing to how she had the opportunity to go to private college and get assistance with student loans from her parents.
    The former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani has come under fire for saying September 11, 2001, the day terrorists flew planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, was 'in some ways … the greatest day of my life.' Giuliani, 78, made the remarks just days before the 21st anniversary of the attacks while speaking on Newsmax on Friday morning.  'The feelings are … complex feelings. I guess the best way to describe it is, it was the worst day of my life and in some ways, you know, the greatest day of my life, in terms of my city, my country, my family. 'It was the worst foreign attack on this country since the war of 1812. It was a complete surprise. It was an attack on completely innocent people and I watched it first hand,' he added.  The former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani has come under fire for saying September 11, 2001, the day terrorists flew planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center was 'in some ways …...
    Of all the tributes that have poured in for our greatest ever monarch Queen Elizabeth II the past 24 hours, it was a heartfelt Instagram post by her former daughter-in-law that stuck with me the most. Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, was, as we all know, exiled from official royal life following her divorce from Prince Andrew and a series of mortifying indiscretions better left in tabloid history. But, even as her beloved husband Prince Philip refused to be in the same room as Fergie, the Queen remained steadfastly loyal on a personal level. To her, once a Windsor, always a Windsor. Grief-stricken Fergie confirmed as much last night, as she wrote following a more formal tribute: 'To me, she was the most incredible mother-in-law and friend. I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed me in remaining close to me even after my divorce. I will miss her more than words can express.' If the life of Elizabeth II has taught us one thing it is that blood is thicker than water. For that...
    A CNN panel including Manu Raju, Kasie Hunt, Jeremy Diamond, and others questioned the Democratic Party’s strategy to fund ads for more extreme Trump-supporting candidates, arguing that it contradicts their message that former President Donald Trump and Trump-like rhetoric is deeply dangerous. In recent primaries in multiple states, Democrats have been paying for ads supporting extreme Republican candidates, in the hopes that they will face them in the general election, under the assumption that they will be easier to defeat. In Maryland, the Democratic Governor’s association financially backed ads promoting Dan Cox, a Trump-backed gubernatorial candidate. Cox won his primary against the current Gov. Larry Hogan’s (R-MD) chosen successor Kelly Shulz. After displaying one of the ads that ran in Maryland promoting Cox, Raju posed the question, “Larry Hogan said the Democrats are playing with fire. Are they?” Diamond responded, “I think we need to acknowledge that it is a clear strategy,” continuing “not only have we seen it in Maryland but we’ve seen it play out across gubernatorial races in several other states.” Diamond argued further: They are trying to get the more extreme...
    CNN+ host Chris Wallace has debated 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah-Jones, challenging her claim that the generation of Americans that fought in World War II were guilty of 'brutally suppressing democracy' for black Americans. Wallace interviewed Hannah-Jones for his new series on CNN's streaming service on Wednesday night, and while the discussion was civil he admitted that it got 'a little heated' at times.  During the interview, Wallace read Hannah-Jones a passage from her Pulitzer-winning New York Times series, which aimed to 'reframe the country's history' to focus on the consequences of slavery.  The passage read: 'Without the idealistic strenuous and patriotic efforts of black Americans, our democracy today would most likely look very different. It might not be a democracy at all.'  CNN+ host Chris Wallace has debated 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah-Jones over her assertion that the Greatest Generation were brutal oppressors  Chris Wallace Goes At Nikole Hannah-Jones for Claim Greatest Generation 'Violently Suppressed' Black Voters in Heated CNN+ Exchange https://t.co/6q1RyKcwzi via @mediaite pic.twitter.com/X95MhXtt7e— Tommy moderna-vaX-Topher (@tommyxtopher) April 7, 2022 'We like to call those who lived during World...
    Accession Day. In 1952, it was a time for mourning a beloved father. We can only guess the weight of the emotional burden that unexpectedly befell the young Princess Elizabeth when the King died on February 6 that year. While it was a day to celebrate the start of a new reign, we should never forget that, for the Queen, it is also a day of pain and bereavement. Seventy years later, it marks the start of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and is a time for looking back with gratitude for a reign that’s still going strong, and for 70 years of memories — our own and those we have inherited. We shouldn’t hold back: monarchy either lives in the hearts and experiences of ordinary British people, or it doesn’t really live at all. We can only guess the weight of the emotional burden that unexpectedly befell the young Princess Elizabeth when the King died My first glimpse of the Queen was through a rainy limousine window in a wintry Scottish town, where our school was gamely trying to line...
    Nimes, France (CNN)What present do you buy a man who has been in a coma for more than 30 years? That's the question the family of former France international Jean-Pierre Adams, whose life was brutally turned upside down in 1982, asks itself every year on key anniversaries. Thirty-six years ago the beefy footballer, then 34, walked into a Lyon hospital for some routine surgery to correct a troublesome knee. By the time he left, he would never talk, walk or move any of his limbs again. His wife Bernadette has tended to him ever since, barely missing a day's care over the last three decades.Read More"No one ever forgets to give Jean-Pierre presents, whether it's his birthday, Christmas or Father's Day," Bernadette told CNN. Adams, who turned 72 on March 10, can breathe on his own, without the assistance of a machine, and has his own room, where he spends most of the day in the type of modified bed normally found in a hospital. "We buy presents like a T-shirt or a jumper because I dress him in his...
    Updated 08/06/2021 – 10:21 Alberto Gins gave this Thursday the big surprise for Spain at the Tokyo Olympics by winning the gold in climbing, proof that he made his debut at the Olympic event. The Extremadura analyzed this Friday before the media how he lived a unique day. “You try to figure out where you can go. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. You try to think about it before doing the exercise, but then the live one is something else,” Gins answered to the question of Alexander White when I questioned him about how he approached his exercises. The young Spanish crack does not believe what he lived. “The goal when we came was to go to the final. We knew it was difficult because there was a high level. Once inside, we thought about doing our best. But we never thought about taking the gold,” added the athlete, who little by little is doing aware of what has been lived. “Today I slept quite little, luckily I have not done anything today except talk with...
    The U.S. Surgeon General is warning that misinformation is the greatest obstacle to vaccinating the country against COVID-19 as a dangerous variant continues to spread. Dr Vivek Murthy told CNN on Thursday that many Americans believe the myths they hear about the shots such as them not being safe or that they alter DNA.  'There is so much misinformation out there about the vaccine, coming through so many channels - a lot of it being spread on social media,' he said. 'It's inducing a lot of fear among people. Two-thirds of those who are unvaccinated in polls say that they either believe the myths about Covid-19 or think that they might be true.'  It's a big reason behind why vaccinations in Missouri have dropped by more than 80 percent since April. However, at the same time, cases have skyrocketed, increasing by nearly 30 percent as the the Indian 'Delta' variant takes hold and turning the state into a hotspot.  U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy warned vaccine misinformation is the biggest threat to vaccinating the country against COVID-19.

    Former President Donald Trump challenged a claim by President Joe Biden on Thursday after he said the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told him climate change was the “greatest threat.” Trump said in a statement Thursday: Biden just said that he was told by the Joint Chiefs of Staff that Climate Change is our greatest threat. If that is the case, and they actually said this, he ought to immediately fire the Joint Chiefs of Staff for being incompetent! Biden a day earlier during a speech to U.S. troops claimed that during a visit to the Pentagon with then-President Barack Obama, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told them that climate change was the “greatest threat” facing America. Biden said at Royal Air Force Mildenhall in the United Kingdom: You know, when I went over in the Tank in the Pentagon, when I first was elected Vice President, with President Obama, the military sat us down to let us know what the greatest threats facing America were — the greatest physical threats. And this is not...
    It was once as celebrated as Paul Revere's ride. In 1842, missionary Dr. Marcus Whitman made the treacherous trek from the Pacific Northwest to Washington D.C. to plead with President John Tyler to keep the territory out of grasping Great Britain's hands. Tyler was convinced and decided not to exchange the land for a cod fishery. Five years later, the doctor, his wife, Narcissa, and 11 men were murdered by members of a Native American tribe, the Cayuse, at the behest of the British Hudson's Bay Company and Catholic missionaries. The killings became known as the Whitman massacre. Henry Spalding, a fellow Protestant missionary, later on spent years spreading the heroic story, which was printed by the US Senate in 1871 and then in books and newspapers like The New York Times. Whitman became a martyr who helped forge the continental United States by 'saving' Oregon, Idaho and Washington state. In the 1890s, he was lauded by many as a founding father and likened to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. But there were problems with this once well-known history: it...
    Steph Curry is currently a man on a mission. He’s determined to carry the Golden State Warriors to the 2021 playoffs and has been spectacular with his displays.

    Jon Hamm and more stars turning 50 in 2021 America’s Favorite Lockdown Hobbies and How Much They Cost PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – It was the greatest round in Players Championship history that never was. © Provided by Golf Channel Lost as a marvelous footnote among the countless retrospective stories this week about the PGA Tour’s 2020 shutdown is Hideki Matsuyama’s opening-round masterpiece as the COVID-19 storm built. While Tour officials wrestled with the pandemic and how their flagship tournament would be impacted, Matsuyama was out early on the Stadium Course on a perfect Thursday morning alongside Patrick Cantlay and Patrick Reed. Although technically a “featured group,” the early hour combined with the mounting uncertainty left few to witness Matsuyama’s magic. Those who were there were treated to a show. Matsuyama, who started his day on No. 10, began his round with four consecutive birdies and turned at 3 under. Matsuyama, 29, was even better on his closing loop with birdies at Nos. 2, 5, 6 and 7. With his ubiquitous media throng outnumbering the fans who had gathered around the...

It was arguably the greatest round in history that no one remembers. Or at least the best one that didn’t count. When Hideki Matsuyama rolled in a 25-foot eagle putt on the par-5 ninth—his final hole of the day—last March at TPC Sawgrass, he matched the course record with a spectacular nine-under 63, becoming the ninth golfer in Players Championship history to card that number. Less than 12 hours later, it was officially wiped out. Just after 10 that evening, the Players and the three tournaments scheduled for the following weeks were canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The announcement came a day after the NBA suspended its season, the NCAA canceled its men’s and women’s basketball tournaments and as cases of coronavirus had begun to take what would be a deadly grip on the country and...
    Michael Jordan and LeBron James. Mike Powell/Allsport/Getty Images; Andy Lyons/Getty Images As two of the best players in NBA history, LeBron James and Michael Jordan's leadership styles have been compared. Former Bulls player B.J. Armstrong told Insider that Jordan really was as intense and ruthless on the floor as has been depicted. James is known to be a demanding teammate, but he is also said to go above and beyond to organize team dinners and parties to forge bonds with his teammates. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. LeBron James and Michael Jordan have both achieved success at the highest levels in the NBA, and their methods of getting their haven't been entirely different. As covered in ESPN's docuseries "The Last Dance" on Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, Jordan could be a ruthless leader. Teammates admitted to fearing Jordan, who would trash-talk, belittle, and criticize players to motivate them. James is known as a tireless worker, like Jordan, who can be hard on teammates but generally uses a kinder, more positive method off the court to get...
    Miami : The Secretary of State of the United States, Antony Blinken, affirmed this Wednesday that the North American country is prepared to face China when necessary, qualifying the Asian power as the “greatest geopolitical challenge” of the century. In his first major speech, Blinken promised that President Joe Biden’s administration will emphasize diplomacy over military action and establish cooperation with the world around global challenges such as climate change and COVID-19. “We will manage the greatest geopolitical test of the 21st century: our relationship with China”said Blinken at the State Department. The official also defend the rights of Hong Kong and the Uighur ethnic group, stating that if not, “China will act with even greater impunity.” Beijing has advanced strongly on the autonomy of the former British colony, especially after passing a controversial national security law last year, and systematically violates the human rights of the Muslim minority – to a greater extent through his internment in concentration camps and forced labor – which has earned him the condemnation of numerous members of the international community. “China is...

    The director of the Center for Health Alerts and Emergencies (CCAES), Fernando Simón, stated this Monday that the most effective way to control infections is close the bars, on top of advancing the curfew, since this measure can be skipped by citizens meeting at homes. “I am not a supporter of a curfew or a non-curfew: I am a supporter of that the measures to control the transmission of the disease are well applied. They can be a few very well applied or many a little worse applied, and in the end achieve the same effect, “said Simón at a press conference. The expert has recognized that “any measure to try to control transmission will have some effect”, but has opted to assess “similar alternatives.” For the epidemiologist, there are other options in advance of the start of the curfew, such as “closing the interiors of the bars“. “I know it is not popular, but it is the one that has shown the greatest impact” “I know it’s not popular, but is the one that has shown a greater impact“,...

    Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen wasn’t overly impressed with “The Last Dance.” The incredible ESPN documentary shined a light on Michael Jordan’s rise to superstardom and Pippen’s role in the process. While Jordan’s sidekick looked good for most of the series, he apparently wasn’t overly pleased, and the retired NBA star elaborated during an interview with The Guardian. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Pippen told The Guardian the following about his views on the hit series: I don’t think it was that accurate in terms of really defining what was accomplished in one of the greatest eras of basketball, but also by two of the greatest players – and one could even put that aside and say the greatest team of all time. I didn’t think those things stood out in the documentary. I thought it was more about Michael trying to uplift himself and to be glorified [the series was co-produced by Jordan’s Jump 23 company]. I think it also backfired to some degree in that people got a chance to...
    Many NBA fans were impressed with ESPN’s 10-part documentary “The Last Dance,” which highlighted one of the greatest athletes and dynasties in all of sports: Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. During the second episode of the documentary, Jordan’s teammate Scottie Pippen was viewed as being “selfish” for waiting until the start of the 1997-98 season to have surgery, and he was depicted in a very negative manner throughout the entire series. SCOTTIE PIPPEN FINALLY RESPONDS TO RUMORS OF BAD BLOOD WITH MICHAEL JORDAN Pippen told The Guardian in an interview published Sunday he told Jordan he wasn't happy without how he was portrayed and that he didn’t feel the series accurately told the story of his time with the Bulls.

    (CNN)An unchecked pandemic is about to run smack into what has traditionally been the busiest travel weekend of the year. And though airports and highways won't be as packed as years past, many Americans are heading into the holiday without the appropriate concern about Covid-19, despite warnings from public health officials that Thanksgiving celebrations could become superspreader events. Nicole HemmerHealth care workers continue to cite the persistence of what can only be called "Covid denialism" among patients they see, even those in grave peril from the disease. That same attitude can be found in those Americans who remain doggedly determined not to change their holiday plans because of Covid, despite the objectively undeniable risks. Such widespread opposition to necessary public health measures is cause for alarm. But much of that alarm has been combined with a sort of hectoring nostalgia, handwringing over an America that no longer seems willing to suffer for the good of others. "This generation of Americans has trouble with the concept of sacrifice," wrote Deseret News columnist Jay Evensen as he implored people to keep...

    President Trump complained on Monday that Fox News had launched a bevy of 'negative ads' against him, adding that disgraced former CEO Roger Ailes was 'the greatest!' Trump made the controversial remark on Twitter just 30 minutes before he took the stage for a campaign rally in Sanford, Florida. He was diagnosed with COVID-19 in the first week of October, but his physicians have cleared Trump and said he tested negative for 'consecutive days.'

    CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — President Trump opened the 2020 Republican National Convention warning the GOP that Democrats were undermining the general election with universal mail-in voting. "They're trying to steal the election from the Republicans," he said Monday in North Carolina. "What they’re doing is using COVID to steal an election. They're using COVID to defraud the American people." In his 50-minute address, Trump accused Democrats of pushing a "Post Office scam" as Postmaster General Louis DeJoy was being grilled by House lawmakers on Capitol Hill over his management of the federal agency ahead of a November contest that will rely heavily on the service because of the coronavirus pandemic. The president called their efforts "the greatest scam in the history of politics" and the fall fight one of the most important ever. “Our country can go in a horrible direction or in an even greater direction," he added. Touting promising economic numbers, Trump told the crowd of 336 delegates, guests, staff, and selected reporters and TV crews that he felt obligated to visit Charlotte after a bitter, public battle...
    Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York City BY CARLO A. SCISSURA Like many lifelong New Yorkers, I am beyond tired of the stories of those decamping from the city because they are fed up with the pandemic. Ignoring the privilege of having that option, the idea that New York City will be defeated by this crisis is a story that has been played out countless times, and just like before, the city will come back stronger. Those who fled will be drawn back to the greatest city in the country (if not the world) when the lights of Broadway are re-illuminated, when fans can sit together at a Yankees or Mets game and when the subway trains are bursting again.  Those who are looking outside of New York City for a peaceful escape do not know the full beauty and opportunities that lie within the other four boroughs and parts of upper Manhattan. New York City offers quiet oases across the city with more than 30,000...
    Which books have had the greatest effect in human history? It is likely that this is a question that will provoke a lot of debate, but it is clear that, from fiction and history to science and religion, the following works have left their mark on the world and have stood the test of time. They are the books with the greatest effect on the course of history. These are stories that still resonate with readers despite having been published decades or centuries ago. The books on this list are widely accepted by historians as works that helped shape society, alter social practices, and capture or explain crucial moments in human history. And it is that reading is not just pleasure: books have the power to touch us in the depths of our being, to open our eyes to injustices and, sometimes, even to act as catalysts for social change. From the works of the English writer William Shakespeare to “1984” by the also British author George Orwell, these are the titles that have had a great impact on our...
    New York (CNN Business)A version of this article first appeared in the "Reliable Sources" newsletter. You can sign up for free right here.These days, when the word URGENT pops up in my inbox, I cringe a little bit, because it is almost always bad news. For example, this alert arrived from CNN's national desk at 9:57pm Thursday: "URGENT: U.S. sees highest single day of new COVID-19 cases, with 60,646 cases reported Thursday."The same disclaimer we included in March still applies now: These are just the cases we know about. Some people who think they have the coronavirus are still unable to get tested. Long lines at testing sites have been reported from Tennessee to California, from Kentucky to Colorado. Local news outlets have been calling out the testing shortages.It's a serious problem. But President Trump isn't addressing that problem. He thinks there is too much testing already. He failed at basic math on Thursday, tweeting the fraction 1/100th when he meant "for the 100th time." He lied to the public, once again, about testing being the root cause of more...
    Coronavirus — Ignorance of COVID-19 has caused them to emerge numerous hypotheses about its form of transmission, the people most likely to contract the virus or which treatments are most effective in controlling its effects. When the pandemic started, it became clear that the advanced age was a major risk factor, as well as male sex or certain previous pathologies. However, these factors do not fully explain why some have mild symptoms, or they don’t present them, while others become seriously ill. For this reason, all risk factors are still being studied. Recent scientific findings suggest that genetics is key to establishing the predisposition of infected patients to develop the most serious forms of COVID-19, accompanied by strong respiratory failure. Although the study is still preliminary, it determines that a segment of the DNA linked to the coronavirus was transmitted from Neanderthals 60,000 years ago. “Recent data resulting from a compilation of 3,199 hospitalized patients by COVID-19 reproduce and find that this DNA segment signifies the increased genetic risk of getting severe SARS-CoV-2 infection, requiring hospitalization, “says the Genome-Wide...
    Jon Stewart called President Trump the “greatest agent of chaos” in America Monday during an appearance on ABC News’ “The View.” Co-host Joy Behar got Stewart fired up when she suggested that Republicans could “try to steal” the upcoming presidential election with voter fraud and suppression and asked the former “Daily Show” host if he agreed. CNN'S CHRIS CUOMO BLASTED FOR DECLARING BROTHER 'BEST POLITICIAN IN THE COUNTRY' ON HIS SHOW “I think in any election, the main thing is to protect the vote, to make sure that it’s secure and safe and that more people who are eligible to vote, vote, can vote, have access to vote... this isn’t the first election that it’s been an issue,” Stewart said. Stewart was then asked about comments he made last week on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” when he admitted that Joe Biden wasn’t his first choice for the Democratic nomination but feels he could be the right choice amid the current climate. JON STEWART: 9/11 VICTIMS ARE 'AT THE END OF THEIR ROPE' SEEKING HELP FROM CONGRESS “We’re in such pain, there is so much anguish and I...
    The latest anti-Trump viral video from The Lincoln Project — with a tribute to the American veterans who fought during World War II and slam on President Donald Trump‘s handling of the coronavirus pandemic that has put these oldest generations at risk — was created by someone with a deep knowledge and appreciation for WWII veterans: John Orloff, one of the writers of HBO’s critically acclaimed miniseries Band of Brothers. The ad, called “Debt,” begins with video footage from the attack on Pearl Harbor, as President Franklin D. Roosevelt‘s voice is heard speaking about the “day that will live in infamy.” “In 1941, America’s leaders asked a generation to go to war,” the narrator begins. “They did nothing less than save the world. It didn’t come easy. It didn’t come quickly. And it didn’t come without great sacrifice.” The ad then cuts to Trump speaking at a recent press briefing about the coronavirus pandemic, as a soft beeping noise begins. “America will again and soon be open for business,” says Trump. “We cannot let the cure be worse than the problem...
    Conservative super PAC The Lincoln Project released on Sunday a scathing advertisement accusing President Donald Trump of wanting to “sacrifice” members of the Greatest Generation. The group argued that Trump’s push for a full reopening of the United States economy amid the coronavirus pandemic has endangered the lives of those who fought to defeat the Nazis in World War II. “It is both disheartening and disturbing that the generation we owe for bravely taking up arms and conquering fascism is now at risk of being extinguished by the authoritarian residing in our own White House,” co-founder of The Lincoln Project Rick Wilson said in a statement. “There is absolutely no equivalency between American lives and our economy, especially those of the most hallowed generation of Americans ever, the patriots singularly responsible for our continued existence as a nation and a democracy.” As reported by CNN, the minute-long video clip opens with footage of images from the Second World War, pointing out that thousands of Americans left their country to fight fascism. “They did nothing less than save the world… and...

    It is estimated that at least 2.6 billion people in March were placed under some form of quarantine. This represents a third of the world population. By the middle of June, the covid-19 disease had already registered over 9 million confirmed cases and killed at least 470,000 people. Some countries in Europe and Asia began to relax their containment measures, but in Latin America many continue with severe restrictions. Those long months of confinement can lead to psychological consequences in a large part of the population. According Elke Van Hook, professor in Health Psychology at the University of Vrije in Brussels and specialist in stress and trauma, we are before the “greatest psychological experiment in history“ The authorities’ lack of attention to psychological assistance during the pandemic will make the world pay the price, he says. The following is a synthesis of BBC Mundo’s telephone conversation with Dr. Elke Van Hook. What can the pandemic teach us about how people respond to adversity? First that we have resilience, that is, most of us can reinvent ourselves and recreate our lives...

    Getty Leonard Williams of the NY Giants When the New York Giants traded for defensive lineman Leonard Williams on the commerce deadline a season in the past, Massive Blue hoped they’d discovered themselves a real anchor of their front-seven. Eight video games and a meager 0.5 sack later, that was clearly not the case. Nonetheless, normal supervisor Dave Gettleman remained bullish on his resolution to amass Williams from their MetLife roommates, the New York Jets, slapping the previous Sixth-overall decide with the franchise tag this offseason. A transfer that will come again to vastly hang-out the franchise within the close to future. A sentiment that Kristopher Knox of Bleacher Report clearly backs, evident by his placement of the Williams scenario as the Giants’ greatest remorse of the 2020 offseason. Let’s be trustworthy. The New York Giants might remorse buying and selling for defensive lineman Leonard Williams greater than they remorse hanging onto him. They gave the crosstown Jets a third-round decide and a conditional fourth-rounder to land Williams and bought little in return. In...

    (CBSNewYork/CBS Local) — WWE’s latest pay-per-view, Backlash, is promising to have the greatest wrestling match ever. That’s a lot of pressure to put on Edge and Randy Orton, who are being tasked with living up to the billing. But the two veterans will almost certainly deliver something special on Sunday from a fan-free Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. The only match that would possibly come close to equaling that performance is the showdown between Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles in the tournament finals for the Intercontinental Championship. However, WWE is choosing to have them square off two nights earlier on SmackDown instead. Perhaps the company isn’t willing to risk having Bryan and Styles upstage the main event. Other matches of note on the Backlash card include Asuka defending the Raw Women’s Championship against Nia Jax, Drew McIntyre defending the WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley, Jeff Hardy facing Sheamus to settle a feud that some say is hitting a little too close to home for Hardy, and a triple threat match for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship featuring incumbent champs...
