    Mercedes driver George Russell jumped from his car to race over and check on Zhou Guanyu after his Alfa Romeo vaulted a barrier at Silverstone at Sunday's Grand Prix.  The pair started eighth and ninth on the grid, and their two cars collided as they tried to go around the first corner, causing them to go flying off the track. AlphaTauri's Pierre Gasly caught Russell, who in turn clipped Zhou, who was sent careering off the track, across the gravel, into the tyre wall, which then flipped him into the catch fence.  What a man @GeorgeRussell63 is ❤️ https://t.co/HSN6YQPRXp— Jan Aage Fjørtoft ????️‍???? ???????? ????????

    A man who proposed to his girlfriend in front of her father's coffin has been criticised for popping the question at a funeral service.  TikTok user M.Mojela shared a video on social media showing himself getting down on one knee as he asked his sobbing partner to marry him during the ceremony in Limpopo province, South Africa. Footage shared on social media showed the deceased's daughter overcome with grief in the front row, with the coffin just yards away, while her partner kneels down in front of her.  Other users were quick to comment on the video, with several calling the stunt 'wrong' and accused the man of taking advantage of an emotional situation while his partner 'wasn't thinking straight'.  It is not clear what the woman's repsonse was, although the footage appears to show that she kept the ring on her finger.   TikTok user M.Mojela shared a video on social media showing himself getting down on front of one knee as he asked his sobbing partner to marry him during the ceremony in Limpopo province, South Africa He began speaking...
    A retired military official is warning on Wednesday that China could claim salvage rights to an F-35 stealth fighter jet that crashed into the South China Sea earlier this week. Carl Schuster, former director of operations at the US Pacific Command's Joint Intelligence Center in Hawaii, told CNN that China's likely game plan will be to capitalize on its territorial claims in the South China Sea and claim it's salvaging the craft for environmental purposes. 'Salvaging the plane with commercial and coast guard assets will enable Beijing to claim it is recovering a potential environmental hazard or foreign military equipment from its territorial waters,' the former Navy captain said.  The U.S. faces a race to beat Beijing  in recovering the military plane after it plunged into the South China Sea on Monday following what the Navy termed a 'landing mishap' aboard the USS Carl Vinson. The pilot was forced to eject and seven military personnel in total were injured.  But as the U.S. military works to recover the craft, Schuster warned that China 'will try to locate and survey it thoroughly using...
    King said that she filed away the incident for future reference, but conditions at the school began snowballing after the bizarre kickoff to the new year. "They were supposed to be discussing books, and the books apparently had some racial themes in them well," King continued. "[The teacher] never got to the literature of the books or the academic portion. She just started sectioning the kids in the way that she talked to them by their physical characteristics. ... 'Oh, I'm sorry, as an African-American child, how do you feel about this? So as an Asian child, how do you feel about that?' And so on. And we had a board of education meeting in Florida to ban critical race theory, and I spoke up against it because I knew it was happening, and they were trying to tell us that this was not in schools. And I'm like, no, it is!" King added that CRT is racist at its core for promoting the message that "America is intrinsically racist." "Everything about it is anti-biblical, it is anti-American,...
    Retired Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman is demanding Chairman of Joint Chief of Staff Mark Milley resign if he did go behind President Trump's back to speak to China Alexander Vindman is calling on Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to resign if the claims in a new book are true that he went behind then-President Donald Trump's back to promise China to warn them if the U.S. planned to attack. 'If this is true GEN Milley must resign,' the retired lieutenant colonel tweeted on Tuesday along with an article about new book 'Peril' which claims Milley was fearful Trump might spark war with China in the wake of his November election defeat to Joe Biden. 'He usurped civilian authority, broke Chain of Command, and violated the sacrosanct principle of civilian control over the military. It's an extremely dangerous precedent,' Vindman, the star witness in the first impeachment of President Trump, tweeted. 'You can't simply walk away from that.' Thee book, set to hit shelves on September 21, claims Milley made secret calls to his counterpart in Beijing while Trump was...
    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United Nations on Monday called the Myanmar military’s election delay and extension of the state of emergency a move in the wrong direction from international calls for the restoration of democracy. Six months after seizing power from the elected government, Myanmar’s military leader, Senior Gen. Min Aung Hlaing, declared himself prime minister Sunday and said he would lead the country during the extended emergency until elections are held in about two years. “It’s not taking us in the right direction,” U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said when asked about the military’s announcement. “It’s moving us further away from what we have been calling for, member states have been calling for, which is a return to democratic rule, a release of all … political prisoners, a halt on the violence and the crackdown,” he said. The state of emergency was declared when troops moved against the elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi on Feb. 1, an action the generals said was permitted under the military-authored 2008 constitution. The military takeover was met with big...

    One time Trump attorney Lin Wood spoke at the weekend’s Health and Freedom Conference which was carried live by One America News (OAN), but even the very pro-Trump cable outlet cut away from his comments as he referenced QAnon as some sort of spiritual savior. The conservative conference reportedly drew thousands of attendees from around the nation and featured a who’s who of pro-Trump speakers like General Michael Flynn among many other conspiracy theorists. After speaking about his four divorces (and how that’s less than King David) Wood revealed how God forgave him and how, when the time comes that He’s ready and you’ve been learning, God would save all those in attendance too. Then he paused briefly and told the crowd “now catch this next move,” before saying “He’s going to rebirth you into the spirit world and create exactly the person that he intended you to be,” while drawing the letter “Q” with his finger. In the event that symbolism was missed by anyone in attendance, Wood explained “there’s the ‘Q'” which delighted the audience so much that...

    TOKYO (Reuters) - Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga reiterated there was no need for Japan to enter a national state of emergency, even as health groups declared their own state of emergency for the medical system as coronavirus infection rates continue to rise. Suga said on Monday evening the head of the government's expert panel on the coronavirus pandemic had told him "we're not there yet" with regards to calling a state of emergency. Suga was responding during an interview on national television. Suga has been struggling with falling approval ratings, with polls showing the public disapproves of how he has handled the pandemic. "We need to show the results of our coronavirus countermeasures. I'll spearhead the effort with a mindset to do everything that must be done," Suga said. Japan has seen a rise in new infection rates in recent weeks, with a record 2,154 people hospitalised as of Monday, according to national broadcaster NHK. A group of national medical associations called their own state of medical emergency on Monday, warning the system was under considerable strain from the pandemic....
    Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris appeared to step back from calls for a nationwide mask mandate — one her running mate still supports. Harris, whose CNN interview with Dana Bash aired Sunday morning on “State of the Union,” said that a call for face masks nationwide would be a “standard” rather than a “mandate,” despite the fact that presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden has called for a nationwide mandate on several occasions. (RELATED: ‘I Would Not Trust Donald Trump’: Kamala Harris Says She’d Be Wary Of An Early Coronavirus Vaccine) WATCH: Bash began by pointing out Biden’s support for a mask mandate, saying that he appeared to have shifted to support individual mandates from governors and mayors rather than at the federal level. “What exactly is the Biden-Harris stance on this? ” Bash asked. “Leaders lead and they set standards. What Joe has been very clear about in his personal behavior, much less in what he is admonishing and requesting of the American people is that we all make the sacrifice to wear a mask...
    Get more in-depth, daily coverage of Chicago politics at The Daily Line. CHICAGO — Cook County will work to steer its multibillion-dollar budget away from police and jails in favor of initiatives like health care, restorative justice and job creation in the coming years, according to a resolution approved by commissioners in a 15-1 vote on Thursday. The Justice for Black Lives Resolution (20-2867), introduced last month by Comm. Brandon Johnson (D-1), says county leaders “should engage in efforts to redirect funds from policing and incarceration to public services not administered by law enforcement.” While non-binding, the resolution represents a sea change in priorities for the county, which this year dedicated nearly one-fifth of its budget to maintaining its behemoth jail and courts system. RELATED: County leaders endorse step toward winding down jail, court funding as grim budget decisions loom “We know that funding once earmarked for the police needs to flow into neighborhoods to improve education, housing, employment opportunities and treatment,” Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle told reporters after Thursday’s meeting. “Systemic racism continues to plague our communities [that] are over-policed, and there’s a...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Four months late, the Pirates will celebrate their home opener at PNC Park on Monday night against the Milwaukee Brewers with no fans in attendance. It is one of many traditions wiped out by the Coronavirus pandemic. When the Pirates opened their season in St. Louis over the weekend, another tradition took a hit. The Pirates broadcasters did the game from a studio on Pittsburgh’s North Shore. “The only difference is we’re not on site,” says the dean of the broadcast team, Greg Brown, who is in his 27th year behind the microphone for the Pirates. “It is a challenge, but for me, and I think I speak for a lot of my cohorts, that it is kind of fun. It’s new, we also know it’s temporary. We wouldn’t want to do this our whole careers, but for the time being, considering what everyone has been through and going through now, in order to bring the game of baseball into living rooms and devices for people, it’s worth it. We all have to make sacrifices and it’s a...
    US coronavirus: Test results lag as cities and states face crucial decisions on whether to reimpose restrictions These 4 words can help you avoid food poisoning this summer ESPN will “shy away” from potential Mets owner A-Rod calling Mets’ games, possibly showing a new regard for conflicts of interest From 2015 through 2019, Jessica Mendoza served as an analyst for ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. Ahead of last season, the New York Mets hired her as a baseball operations adviser, but she retained her role as an ESPN analyst and broadcast three Mets SNB games last year. The conflict of interest there took some fire, with teams like the Dodgers even barring her from some clubhouse access granted to media members over concerns about her role with the Mets. Her job with the organization was part of why she was widely roasted this spring for her criticisms on ESPN platforms of Mike Fiers’ whistleblowing, which led to her ultimately leaving the Mets and signing a new ESPN deal (but being taken off Sunday Night Baseball). © Provided by Awful Announcing Alex...
