    IN the five years I was lucky enough to work with Dame Deborah James, we messaged each other most days. But, there’s one WhatsApp I will never forget. I knew it would come, but I hadn’t let myself believe it. 6Deborah James in a photo shoot for Fabulous magazine in December 2021, six months before she diedCredit: Stewart Williams 6Dame Deborah, pictured in hospital, was diagnosed with bowel cancerCredit: bowelbabe/Instagram 6She sported fund-raising T-shirts and managed to raise £7.5million to help give other people a chance to survive cancerCredit: bowelbabe/Instagram I’d clung on to the hope that Debs refused to let go of and we dared to dream she might be one of the lucky ones. But, on Saturday, May 7, Debs sent a message to friends to say this was it, the message she never wanted to have to send. It crushed me. I sobbed and I struggled to catch my breath. This was it, Deborah was going to die and yet my brain couldn’t comprehend a world without her. Read More on Who Cares WinsMEG-A STAR Megan McKenna...
    A little under a year since Mark Zuckerberg rechristened Facebook as Meta, internal documents have revealed that his Metaverse virtual reality universe is struggling to meet its goals.  That's according to documents that were seen by the Wall Street Journal. The company planned to hit 500,000 users of its virtual reality platform, Horizon Worlds, by the end of 2022. The number at the time of writing is less than 200,000, still well below a revised goal of 280,000 by the end of 2022.  The documents also reveal that the majority of those 200,000 users, don't come back after entering the system once with many complaining most of the areas are bereft of other users.  They've also complained of avatars floating around eerily with no legs - an issue Meta says it'll fix in the coming months.   Since the Spring of 2022, the number of users of Horizon Worlds has been declining.  Less than ten percent of the worlds in the Metaverse receive more than 50 visitors and the majority of these worlds receive zero visitors.  A new report from the Wall...
    Comedian Cedric the Entertainer appeared in a new political ad targeting Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker, dubbing him “one of those chocolates you don’t want.” The diss came after the Barbershop star referenced the film Forrest Gump in the ad, which runs approximately 90 seconds. “Lord, you know they said life is like a box of chocolates,” he said. “Well, Hershey’s Walker is one of these chocolates that you don’t want. You know the ones where you get a box of chocolates and you like (gagging)? That’s him. I mean, the man is ridiculous, dog.” The ad comes courtesy of Project Action Fund, a Los Angeles-based Democratic Super PAC. Cedric the Entertainer compared Walker to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), mistakenly referring to her as a senator and focusing on Walker’s haircut and “extra muscles.” “I mean, some of the stuff he is saying — we just got to be very concerned about the educational system, one. Two: We already got senators that’s, like, you know, Marjorie Taylor, that’s crazier than a mug,” the comedian said. “We...
    Bill Bee is author of The Shot: The Harrowing Journey of a Marine in the War on Terror, which will be released on September 13.  Nearly a year ago, President Joe Biden was speaking at a briefing when he turned to take a question from a reporter. It was August 29, 2021 – just three days after an Al Qaeda suicide bomber blew himself up outside the gates of Kabul airport killing 13 American troops, including 11 Marines, and dozens of Afghan civilians. 'Mr. President, on Afghanistan . . .' the journalist started. 'No, I'm not going to answer Afghanistan now,' snapped Biden, the commander-in-chief responsible for the disaster, as he walked away from the podium. How dare he? Now, one year since the last American military aircraft left Kabul airport, the president has still not answered the question. How could he lead America into one of the most humiliating and unnecessarily deadly military withdrawals in our history and stay mum? As a Marine who flew to Helmand Province just months after 9/11 and whose combat career ended in a...
    Dear Amy: “Trying to be Accommodating” described their discomfort hiking with friends who “dragged” their very young children (ages 2 and 4) on an eight-hour hike in the heat and over rough terrain. The kids did most of the walking themselves, and “cried the whole time.” I was one of those kids. I was taken backpacking at 3 years old. I learned to ski when I was 2. When I inevitably fell behind, my parents said they wanted me to learn independence and stamina and that they would “just go on ahead.” By the time I was 14 I’d been left on the Knife Edge of Mount Katahdin in Maine, rescued by the snow patrol in Italy, and found by strangers who carried me on their shoulders up Mount Washington — to name just three episodes. This behavior is traumatic for those children, and if they are pushed beyond their limits in this way consistently it will only get worse.

    CBS News wrapped its reporting about the death of Al Qaeda leader Ayman Al Zawahiri by reminding viewers those who participated in or planned the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks are now all either dead or in jail. Meanwhile, the site of the most devastating terror attack in U.S. history is thriving. Network anchor John Dickerson reported the news of Zawahiri’s death via drone strike. After some analysis, he wrapped the report and sent CBC affiliates across the country back to their regularly scheduled programming. First, he offered a reminder: We leave you with a look at lower Manhattan and One World Trade Center. All those that plotted the attack are either dead or captured. One World Trade stands as the tallest building in the western hemisphere. A reminder of the resilience of New York City and the American people. As he spoke, CBS shared the beauty of Manhattan’s skyline with One World Trade towering magnificently 1,792 feet in the sky. While New York recovered from 9/11, as Dickerson noted, those who planned and carried out the attack have been destroyed. Zawahiri,...
    People who have risen from poverty to wealth often boast of their humble beginnings, and one might assume they would be more sensitive to the plight of the poor than those who were born rich. But a new study suggests that people who have gone from 'rags to riches' are less likely to sympathise with the struggles of poverty than those who have always had money. Researchers surveyed more than 1,000 people in the US and found that those who had moved up the economic ladder tended to see social mobility as being easier than people who were born rich.  As a result, they had less sympathy with those unable to follow them.  This runs contrary to the popular belief that coming from a privileged background makes you more indifferent to the economic plight of others.  The news comes after Prince William was photographed earlier this month selling copies of the Big Issue to highlight homelessness. Prince William (pictured with Big Issue vendor Dave Martin) recently 'went undercover' as a Big Issue seller to shine a light on the issue of homelessness Rich...
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The U.S. passed a somber milestone with a total of one million lives lost to COVID-19, and the issue hits close to home for the Eyewitness News family.ABC7 content producer Gina Sirico's father died after being infected with COVID.She's one of the nine million Americans grieving such a terrible loss, but her father's legacy lives on in a collection of stories celebrating 19 people who succumbed to the virus.Her dad, Frank Sirico, loved to fish, and like many fishermen, he had quite a fish story."When things weren't going his way on the water, he would put on some music and dance it out," said Gina Sirico. "Sure enough, shortly after, the fish would hit."The story of Frank's fish dance is the stuff of legend.Shortly after he died, his friend Joe was on a fishing trip and wasn't getting any nibbles.So he took out his phone and played a video of Frank dancing."On the next drop, Joe caught a 365-pound swordfish.

    We are getting older. Not just individually, but as a population. We’re in the midst of a demographic shift that will see the number of older people (age 65-plus) in the U.S. grow larger than the number of children (under 18) for the first time in our nation’s history by the year 2030. Although, you could never tell this shift is happening just by looking at the ways our society spends its public and philanthropic dollars. Even as the aging population grows, we continue to see a decline in funding dedicated to meet the needs of this growing group. In Minnesota, less than 1% of philanthropic dollars go to aging services. So where does this inverse relationship between the number of seniors and the support for them come from? As a nonprofit focused on helping people safely remain in and keep their own homes, we’ve confronted our fair share of justifications.

    WHETHER it's in between patio slabs, flowerbeds or sprouting through cracks in the driveway, weeds will always find a way to appear. If you're green-fingered, it's likely you've wasted hours digging on your hands and knees in a bid to get rid of them once and for all. 1Gardening experts have revealed a cheap and easy way to stop them from growing outside - and all you need is Epsom salt.

    Were it not for social media, I don’t think anyone would have been bothered about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge walking across a Jamaican sports field to greet screaming fans on the other side of a fence. However, we live in an age where the Twitter-driven battalions of the perpetually offended are constantly seeking their next grievance. And here was a gem. They could actually take offence – at a fence. Privileged white royal tourists shielded from the black children of Trench Town? ‘Outrageous’/ ‘colonial’ etc. Except, I have spoken to some of those who were actually on the spot. The scene was nothing of the sort.  The fence has been there for years, helping to keep spectators off the pitch but also keeping balls and children from spilling out on to the adjacent road. A big crowd had gathered to view the celebrity visit and they were yelling at the Cambridges to come across for a chat. We live in an age where the Twitter-driven battalions of the perpetually offended are constantly seeking their next grievance. And here...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said Tuesday he does not plan to attend President Joe Biden’s first State of the Union address, happening in one week, because of extraordinarily strict coronavirus measures in place for the event. Cotton is one of at least a few Republicans who have so far expressed intentions to skip the annual joint session address, which takes place in the House chamber. Spokesman James Arnold told Breitbart News, “Nancy Pelosi’s COVID theatrics are a joke and Senator Cotton will not be attending.” Currently the House side of the Capitol building has a mask mandate in place, but the Senate side of the building does not. The first to announce his plans to forgo attending was Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who shared a document listing out the newly announced health requirements of the event on Thursday. “Below is the #CovidTheatre rituals required to attend the State of the Union,” Rubio wrote. “No thank you, maybe next time.” Below is the #CovidTheatre rituals required to attend the State of the Union No thank you, maybe next time pic.twitter.com/Fe0BSthVjk —...
    Ryan Utterback presenting the case to ban books for being too sexually explicit for young adults on Oct. 26, 2021. A Missouri father who supported the banning of books—and even assisted in a book-banning presentation in front of a school board this past October—has been accused of a “felony charge of second-degree child molestation and a misdemeanor charge of fourth-degree domestic assault,” according to KMBC 9. Ryan Utterback, 29, faces a separate case that includes the “misdemeanor charge of furnishing pornographic material or attempting to furnish to a minor.”  The allegations against Utterback are pretty gnarly, and come just a couple of months after he held blown-up pages from the award-winning graphic novel Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic that depicts author Alison Bechdel’s childhood growing up secretly lesbian, and her strained relationship with her father (and her discovery, shortly before his death, that he  was secretly gay). Utterback stood by while Northland Parent Association president Jay Richmond spoke in front of the Northern Kansas City District Board of Education on Oct. 26, 2021. Reading excerpts from a series of LGBTQ-positive books, Richmond demanded to know why the school board was “promoting” these...
    "Cardi B, you are an angel," he said. "I can't thank you enough. My family can't thank you enough for what you have done. I don't know you. I am sure you've never heard of my family. For you to step up and do what you did for us at this time, all I could do is pray to Allah for you. May Allah give you all your wishes and grant you everything in this world." He added, "I can't even imagine. I have five family members that I am planning to bury, and the financial aspect — we all know how expensive that can be, and for me not to worry about the cost at all was just a huge, huge help and a huge relief for my family." In a statement thanking the hip hop superstar, New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) said that New Yorkers "never turn their back on one another." “The resilience of this city reflects everyday New Yorkers who never turn their back on one another,” Adams said of...
    EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) –  It’s the third Monday in January, and if you’re feeling down, you’re not alone. It’s a day that’s come to be known as “Blue Monday” because of a combination of seasonal challenges.

The sun peaked out on this Blue Monday, a term coined years ago by a psychologist who, adding up the dreary weather, post-Christmas debt, and failed New Year’s resolutions, dubbed it the most depressing day of the year. Parents struggling with cooped up little ones wouldn’t argue. “It’s cold. On top of that, there’s COVID going on,” one person said. There was no science in picking the date but it made a point. “You get the winter blues.

    In the moment Andy died, I was certain of two things: that my beloved was gone, though the critical care team waited a bleak minute before confirming what my heart brokenly and instantly recognised — and that he would never leave. Death alters relationships. It doesn’t end them. It will be two years next month since my husband succumbed to a pneumonia that blindsided doctors with its severity and odd behaviours, defying their every intervention. Later, they would launch an inconclusive investigation, suspecting that Andy, only 64 when he died, had been one of the earliest UK Covid fatalities. He first showed symptoms of the illness that would kill him less than a week after his band, Gang Of Four, rounded off an international tour at packed venues in China. Widowhood came hard on the heels of another loss. My stepfather John died shortly after Andy’s return to London, his cause of death also listed as pneumonia. My mother and I were lucky in one respect; this happened before Covid barred families from hospitals. I was even able to hold...
    Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Sunday explained why he has decided to run for Senate again despite promising to impose term limits on himself. Fox News host Maria Bartiromo spoke to Johnson soon after he announced he is running again. "There are many factors," Johnson asserted. "It wasn't an easy decision. But I think probably the easiest way to put it is that I love America dearly. I love the American people. I love the folks in Wisconsin and I think this country is in trouble. I think Democrats in power in Washington have put us on a very dangerous path and I think I'm in a position to help improve things." "It really just boils down -- it's that simple," he continued. "We need to restore confidence in so many institutions within -- throughout America, whether it's in governmental agencies, whether it's in media, in big tech. People have lost confidence. And the only way I can see restoring confidence is we need to ask a lot of questions, we need to...
    The enigmatic, unsettling — and depraved — relationship between Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein exerts a terrible fascination. But it is so clouded by their lies and obfuscation that even those closest to them remain unsure of the exact nature of their co-dependency. Epstein, found dead in his prison cell in 2019 while facing child sex-trafficking charges, was stupendously wealthy and undoubtedly handsome. He was also socially inept, awkward, taciturn and, of course, amoral. Maxwell, by contrast, was gregarious, Oxford-educated and formidably well-connected. Socially supremely confident, by turns charming and eccentric, she was also ruthlessly self-serving.  She became first his lover then his constant companion and lady of the house; his confidante and co-conspirator. The enigmatic, unsettling — and depraved — relationship between Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein exerts a terrible fascination She offered him the entrée he craved into a world of high-society movers and shakers, of presidents and royalty. How else would the man from working-class Brooklyn ever have met Prince Andrew without her introduction? Epstein, in return, kept Maxwell in the lavish lifestyle of the super-rich, to which...
    Getty Eagles CB Darius Slay tallied two big-time interceptions in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers. Darius Slay was already one of the best cornerbacks in football when he arrived in Philadelphia. Slay – a four-time Pro Bowler who led the NFL in interceptions and pass breakups in 2017 – has gotten even better during his ninth season. Credit Dennard Wilson, the first-year defensive backs coach for the Philadelphia Eagles. Slay was in an extremely chipper mood when he met with reporters on Wednesday and couldn’t stop gushing about his position coach. Wilson, a college standout at Maryland, has been telling his players to trust their eyes and anticipate where the quarterback is going with the football. Everything he’s instructed Slay to do has come up on gameday. “Dennard, he’s been a great coach, man. He helped me elevate my game to a whole other level,” Slay told reporters. “He has never steered me wrong. Not once, not yet. I wouldn’t be surprised if sooner or later he has one of those jobs.” Darius Slay holding receivers to...
    President Joe Biden addressed the tornadoes that tore through six states and left more than 70 people dead, telling reporters that “this is likely to be one of the largest tornado outbreaks in our history.” Biden said he spoke with the governors of the states affected, which include Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. “Jill and I pray, and I sincerely mean this, pray for those who have lost loved ones and for those who are uncertain of the fate of their loved ones, and the debris that you see scattered all over the hurricane’s path,” Biden said. “They lost their homes, they lost their businesses. It’s a tragedy…And we still don’t know how many lives are lost and the full extent of the damage.” Kentucky was hit the hardest, with Gov. Andy Beshear (D) saying the death toll is “north of 70” and could exceed 100. Beshear said a candle factory in Mayfield, Kentucky collapsed with 110 people inside, and that only 40 people had been rescued from inside as of Saturday afternoon.

    As one of Hollywood’s loudest proponents of Method acting, Jared Leto has long been one of those performers who loves “disappearing” into a role. In House of Gucci, he finally succeeds—for better and for worse. For most of his career, Leto’s shapeshifting has been more conspicuous than chameleonic. But Ridley Scott’s fashion epic uses the actor’s zeal for over-the-top “transformative” performances to its advantage. Somewhere between the prosthetic nose, the “it’s-a-me!” accent, and the hideous corduroy jackets, Leto does become unrecognizable. The trick only becomes funnier once you realize this floundering, narcissistic Fashion Wario is actually Leto—an actor defined, increasingly, by his relentless ego. The Oscars conversation is far from set, but House of Gucci could win sophomore awards for both Leto and Lady Gaga. As exciting as it is to consider Gaga adding yet another gold statuette to the shelf, however, Leto’s awards contention is more complicated. What should we make of this performance and the boost it could give Leto’s image, given the unsettling rumors that have hung over him for years? Lady Gaga tears through House...
    Tucker Carlson would like to know more about Vice President Kamala Harris’s relationship with Montel Williams 20 years ago because reasons. On Monday night the Fox News host began a segment on the vice president by saying, “There’s a lot we don’t know about Harris.” He said that because the vice president went to school in Canada, she’s not really from the United States “in that sense.” Whatever that means. “She really grew up in Canada,” said Carlson. “That’s where she went to high school. She’s not from this country in that sense.” He then asked, “Why haven’t we heard that?” (Some of us have.) The Fox News host then strongly intimated that Harris has slept her way into prominent positions. “By the way, how did someone who clearly is not liked by the people around her and clearly isn’t very good at her job, get so high up?” Carlson proceeded to rehash the history of Harris’s relationship with Willie Brown. In the early 1990s, Harris and Willie Brown, then the Speaker of the California State Assembly, began a romantic...
    A crew of masked robbers tracked actor and former BET host Terrence Jenkins to his Sherman Oaks home early Wednesday and attempted to block him in with an SUV, but he was able to flee in his car as shots were fired. Authorities say it’s the latest in a series of follow-home robberies. Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore warned that his department has seen a spike in such crimes in recent weeks in more affluent areas of the Westside. Among those targeted in recent weeks was “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Dorit Kemsley’s Encino mansion, where masked robbers made off with as much as $1 million in valuables. Detectives believe she was followed to her home before two men smashed their way into the house. LAPD Capt. Jonathan Tippet, who oversees the Robbery Homicide Division, said investigators believe multiple robbery crews are behind the series of crimes in the last few weeks. It was unclear how many follow-home robberies there have been and how many crews are involved. LAPD crime statistics show that citywide robberies in 2021 are...
    In newly revealed text messages to Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, the CEO of McDonald's appeared to blame the parents of two children who were shot and killed in the city, which is experiencing a dramatic spike in violent crime. CEO Chris Kempczinski sent the controversial message to Lightfoot on April 19, after meeting with the Democrat at McDonald's headquarters in Chicago, texts revealed in a public records request show.  The message references the slaying of seven-year-old Jaslyn Adams, who was shot dead as she sat in her father's car at a McDonald's drive-thru in an apparent gangland ambush targeting the dad, and the police killing of 13-year-old Adam Toledo, who dropped a gun to the ground less than a second before a cop fatally shot him during a foot chase at 2.30am.  Kempczinski's text calls them 'tragic shootings' and adds: 'With both, the parents failed those kids which I know is something you can't say.

    Getty An exciting fan-favorite UFC fighter hopes to land a fight with either Nick or Nate Diaz next. Niko Price squared off against Alex Oliveira during the main card of UFC Fight Night 193 on Saturday, October 2, 2021. It was a tit-for-tat welterweight bout, with Price getting the better of “Cowboy” in the first round, and Oliveira rallying back in the second. Then, the two duked it out on the feet for most of the third frame, but “The Hybrid” was able to finish the fight strong, ending the match on top of Oliveira and landing punishing strikes. GettyNiko Price punches Alex Oliveira in their welterweight bout during the UFC event on October 2, 2021.

Yes, the Buccaneers-Patriots game was light years better than most of us anticipated. It was competitive. It had a little bit of this, a little bit of that.

    (CNN) — With a first-of-its-kind antiviral pill against COVID-19 potentially headed towards distribution, the health care community may soon have another tool to combat a virus that has claimed the lives of more than 700,000 Americans.

They'll take a five-day course and hopefully be able to stay home, not come in for an intravenous infusion and keep folks out of the hospital. So, it's really very promising news," Dr. Jonathan Reiner, CNN medical analyst and professor of medicine and surgery at George Washington University, told CNN's Pamela Brown Saturday. But Reiner noted that full immunization of the country -- the best method for beating back the pandemic -- will not happen due to resistance from some, and a substantial number of Americans have died since late February as...
    Tennessee leads the nation in new COVID-19 cases per capita, new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found.  According to data compiled by The New York Times over the last week, the state has seen an average of over 8,300 new coronavirus infections each day. Health experts believe part of the alarming number has to do with a low rate of vaccinations, particularly among children.  Fewer than one in four children ages 12 to 17 in Tennessee are vaccinated against COVID-19.  That is having devastating consequences for families. Julie McDivitt's son, Jacob Rodriguez, started feeling sick in late July. He told CBS News' Omar Villafranca he felt like he "had COVID."  "Felt really tired, headache. Couldn't taste nothing. It was awful," Rodriguez said. But his symptoms didn't raise any red flags for McDivitt. Even after a positive COVID test, she expected her athletic son to easily overcome COVID, and for a while, it looked like that was the case — until his temperature started to rise. "Day 2, fever hits, and it never let up," McDivitt said. "Fourteen days straight, he ran...

    Five years ago, I heard the expression ‘You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with’ and it was one of those phrases that immediately got my creative juices flowing. Within an hour, I had my lead character and the plot of my new novel, Freckles. Credited to the famous American author and business motivational speaker Jim Rohn, it’s an enigmatic phrase. The question it begs — who are those five people? — could, I suppose, have a different answer in each different phase of our lives. While the precious people remain, others change as our situations change: new neighbourhood, new job, new you. But if you were to choose a phase of your life, and look at who you were and what you were going through, and then closely examine the five people you allowed into your inner circle, how much of an impact did those people have on your decisions and on your character? Four UK-based writers reflected on the five people who've shaped their lives the most, as Cecelia Ahern (pictured)...
    Exhausted, frustrated and crushed by the mass of people desperate to reach Kabul airport, ex-military translators and their families told of their failed bids to escape yesterday. Some approved for evacuation failed to make it through Taliban checkpoints – one held at gunpoint and photographed, another beaten and turned back. Others complained of spending more than 60 hours in the crush of people where at least seven died and dozens were carried away unconscious. Dozens of those who risked their lives as interpreters beside UK troops were said to have been notified for flights over the weekend but some were too scared to pass Taliban checkpoints. Pictured, former translator Salim and his wife Brekhna Those that did make it spoke of the kindness of paratroopers manning the gates, which at times had to be closed. British soldiers gave food, water and even clothes to those in need. Women tried passing their children above their heads to soldiers to escape the crush. The Taliban had fired in the air and used batons to force crowds to form orderly queues outside the...
    Getty Former Arkansas QB Feleipe Franks #13. Atlanta Falcons‘ longtime starting quarterback, Matt Ryan, has been around the block a few times, so he’s certainly the guy you want to take notes from if you’re an incoming rookie. Undrafted rookie signal-caller, Feleipe Franks, is doing just that and it’s not going unnoticed. “And here’s another name to keep in mind, especially as you get into preseason — because you’re going to see a lot of him — rookie quarterback Feleipe Franks,” Tom Pelissero said on NFL Network’s Inside Training Camp Live. “Huge guy with a huge arm. Started out at the University of Florida. Got hurt there. Kyle Trask took over. Transferred to Arkansas. Was a surprise that he did not up getting drafted. From what I’m told, he’s been following Matt Ryan around the building like a puppy dog, soaking up everything that he possibly can. Look for Franks to be one of those guys who jumps out in the preseason, guys.” Franks started his college career with the Florida Gators but soon lost his starting job...
    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson wants the world to know he has a very strict showering regimen — unlike some other celebrities. After a fan tweeted that Johnson "can’t possibly be one of those stinky" stars, he quickly confirmed she was correct — and even shared details about his bathing habits. "Nope, I’m the opposite of a ‘not washing themselves’ celeb," the "Jumanji" actor, 49, responded Friday. "Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’. Shower (warm) after my workout before work. Shower (hot) after I get home from work." Along with a soap emoji, he added, "Face wash, body wash, exfoliate and I sing (off key) in the shower." DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON TEASES INTEREST IN RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT: 'IT'D BE AN HONOR' Celebrities neglecting their hygiene has been a hot topic lately, most recently after Jake Gyllenhaal revealed his stance Thursday. "More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times," the "Brokeback Mountain" star, 40, told Vanity Fair in an interview promoting Prada’s Luna Rossa Ocean fragrance.

    Vallejo’s error: “There is nothing to reproach anyone. I only have words of gratitude to all the players. Football is as it is. We all play, we hit and fail.

    These days, Manny Pacquiao’s age is the number one reason his detractors don’t give him any chance of victory in his fight against Errol Spence. The same happens with Guillermo Rigondeaux, who at his exact 40s is about to break the odds against the WBO bantamweight champion: John Riel Casimero. Guillermo Rigondeaux (Top Rank) On the other shore, it was learned that Eddie Hearn ruled out in 2021 a third fight between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin, and assures that it will take place on Saturday, May 7, 2022. That is, one month after GGG celebrates its 40 years old. In turn, Sergey Kovalev, who is semi-retired at 38, surprised these days by challenging Canelo for a rematch on his Instagram account. Add in the sixth figure on the chart, Erik Morales, who closed his career as early as age 36. Canelo vs. Kovalev It is clear that there are differences and life does not punish or bless all the professionals in the ring equally. And under this premise of nature, inevitably, that difference must be incorporated into any...
    Jimbo Covert made his name by making others famous first. Maybe that explains the wait. He was recruited by Jimmy Johnson and finished up at Pitt just in time to join the revving-up Chicago Bears. There, beginning in 1983, Covert opened up running lanes for Walter Payton, walled off the blind side for “punky QB” Jim McMahon, and won a three-game, high stakes duel with Lawrence Taylor by making the Giants’ linebacking legend look positively ordinary. “He was one of the best in my 30 years of football,” said coach Bill Parcells, to drop another name who thinks Covert should have been in the Hall of Fame before now. “Other guys had to have help against Taylor.” Yet Covert did need help to join the Centennial Class of 2020. A two-time All-Pro, he anchored an offensive line that swept the Bears to a Super Bowl championship and six division titles in seven years, but played only eight seasons total. He was selected to the NFL’s 1980s All-Decade Team, despite losing large chunks of the 1987-88 seasons to the nagging back...
    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene awkwardly laughed off a question about children dying of COVID-19 during an office press conference to address her most recent Twitter suspension.  The pro-Trump Georgia Republican was banned from Twitter for 12 hours for authoring two 'misleading' tweets on separate days saying, the coronavirus ' is not dangerous for non-obese people and those under 65' and the vaccine is 'non-FDA' approved.  A reporter asked her if she felt 'any responsibility for keeping people in Georgia safe? There are children, skinny people, who have died of coronavirus. Do you feel any responsibility?' The representative made a toothy smile during the question and then awkwardly laughed. She answered by saying, 'You crack me up.' She paused for a moment and continued with her answer, 'You know what? I think people’s responsibility is their own to read the information, and it’s everywhere.' Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene laughs at a reporter's question asking if the Republican Georgia  representative felt responsibility for children's deaths in Georgia She answered by saying, 'You crack me up' She hosted a press...
    "If you have two pennies, spend one on bread and one on roses" -- An old German saying For 10 years, Frankenoid (“Frankie” to her friends) shepherded the Saturday Morning Garden Blog (SMGB). Under her care it became, as Merry Light put it, "my lifeline sometimes, and I think it is for lots of us. I first stumbled across Frankie's Saturday Morning Garden Blog one winter morning. I recall it was during the Obama/Clinton upheaval, and I was looking for something to read that wasn't a pie fight. Just in time, there was a picture of a flower and the word 'garden'. I was hooked!" Estreya credits Frankie with "quite literally sowing the seeds of Community," and nurturing the Group to become one of Daily Kos’ most enduring regular features. It has always been, as advertised, “a convocation of those with grimy fingernails.” Back during the Dark Ages of the Internet (2005, to be exact), when Daily Kos was still a young upstart political blog, one bright and balmy Saturday morning in February, Frankenoid wrote: The first daffodils are...
    Aaron Rodgers dropped a bit of sarcasm about having one of those “quiet offseaons” during an interview about his upcoming golf match. It happened on Tuesday as host Brian Anderson played a promotional video of the July 6 golf match with the Green Bay Packers QB and PGA star Bryson DeChambeau going up against Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson. Anderson joked about how the Packers’ star had kept a “low profile this offseason.” The video was shared by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Instagram. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) “I’ve hardly seen your name at all and you haven’t hosted any TV shows or been involved in any kind of controversy or anything, it’s been a nice, peaceful offseason for you, it sounds like,” he added.

    A shocking new study shows how the sluggish transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy 'continues to sicken and kill people'.  Researchers performed a comprehensive analysis of the sources and health effects of air pollution for more than 200 countries for 2017. They found 1.05 million deaths would have been avoidable globally – including around 10,000 in the UK – in 2017 by eliminating fossil-fuel combustion.  Coal, a type of fossil fuel, was responsible for more than half that total, according to the international team of study authors.  In particular, they point to PM2.5 – particulate matter with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers, which is about three per cent the diameter of a human hair.  Particulate matter (PM) is emitted during the combustion of solid and liquid fuels, such as for power generation, domestic heating and in vehicle engines. Particulate matter varies in size (i.e. the diameter or width of the particle). PM2.5 means the mass per cubic metre of air of particles with a size (diameter) generally less than 2.5 micrometres (µm). Pictured, Bangkok, Thailand obscured by PM...
    Caitlyn Jenner refused to tell Joy Behar whether she believed former President Donald Trump won the 2020 election. The aspiring Republican California gubernatorial candidate joined Thursday’s broadcast of “The View” on ABC, and she blew off the question entirely. “I’m not going to get into that. That election is over with,” she said.
