    Former U.S. President Donald Trump talks to the press on the grounds of his Mar-a-Lago resort on midterm elections night in Palm Beach, Florida, U.S. November 8, 2022.Ricardo Arduengo | Reuters Lawyers for former President Donald Trump are arguing that hundreds of documents that the FBI seized from his Florida residence are "personal" because he said so. But federal prosecutors say he cannot deem the records personal "simply by saying so." In a new court filing, the Department of Justice also accused Trump of "gamesmanship" by saying he will assert executive privilege over dozens of documents if a court-appointed watchdog rejects his claim that they are "personal" in nature. The war over what Trump's purported words mean is playing out in a federal court in Florida, where the former president's lawyers and attorneys for the DOJ briefed a judge last week on the status of issues related to the records seized in early August from Trump's Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach. The legal briefs were unsealed Monday. The DOJ is criminally investigating Trump for the removal of government records from...
    No — two south Philadelphia restaurants did not refuse to serve the Houston Astros while they are in town for the World Series.  The rumor originated when social media users misinterpreted two posts by the restaurants in question — Mike's BBQ on South 11th Street and Angelo's Pizzeria on South 9th Street — to mean that the eateries declined to cater for the 'Stros.  Before the restaurants could even respond, the controversy went viral when NBC Sports Philadelphia reported on the alleged boycott.  Since then, the restaurants have been flooded with negative online reviews from Astros fans, 6ABC reports. But the owners of both eateries disputed the rumor in interviews with media outlets on Thursday, Nov. 3. Michael Strauss, the barbecue proprietor, told 6ABC that his restaurant was mistakenly listed as a Latin food joint on a sheet of local recommendations given to the Houston team.  When they called up asking for Latin food, Strauss told the outlet he said no, simply because that's not what his business serves.  Strauss posted the exchange to his Instagram story, along with the caption "I'm not feeding them... lol." ...
    by T.A. DeFeo   President Joe Biden’s plan to forgive some federal student loan debt received a lukewarm reaction from some Georgia groups who say the policy is unfair and won’t help ease inflation. “We’re disappointed to see yet another policy out of Washington that creates more problems than it solves,” Eric Cochling, the chief program officer and general counsel for the Georgia Center for Opportunity, said. “In addition to contributing to already runaway inflation, this plan from the White House doesn’t actually forgive debt, it simply transfers the burden to taxpayers.” On Wednesday, Biden announced a $200 billion plan to cancel up to $20,000 in debt for Pell Grant recipients whose loans are held by the U.S. Department of Education and up to $10,000 for non-Pell Grant recipients. It applies to individuals who make $125,000 or less per year and households making $250,000 or less annually. “This is a bad decision on multiple levels. The cancellation of student loan debt is inherently unfair,” Tony West, the deputy state director for Americans for Prosperity–GA, told The Center Square. “Those...
    Keeping apples in the fridge and eggs in the freezer might sound bananas, but experts say it can help families save money during the cost-of-living crisis. With grocery prices rising a record 10 per cent compared with last year and supermarket staples doubling in price, many shoppers are searching for ways to keep costs down. And experts at consumer champions Which? say families can save money and reduce waste simply by storing their food correctly. Their tips include putting eggs in the freezer, but only after cracking and beating them before storing them in a container. Bread should also go in the freezer.

    President Joe Biden promised to forgive $10,000 in federal student loan debt per borrower while on the campaign trail. Now, Biden was far from the most progressive or excited about student debt forgiveness—Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, for example, pledged to forgive far more. But still, Biden (seemed) to hear the calls of the voters and made a promise. As of now, he has extended a pause on federal student loans (originally established by Trump), but has not acted on his promise. Why not? The White House has been dancing around the issue of who can forgive the debt—Warren, for instance, argues the president can cancel the debt by executive order. Other Democrats argue cancellation is possible, but it needs to be done through Congress. That’s the line White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki seems to take when asked about Biden’s inaction. But an undercurrent to all of this is the question of what voters want. Is student loan debt something only millennials with tons of debt care about? According to recent polling from Data for Progress, that’s actually...
    Prince Andrew could have avoided his on-going sexual assault lawsuit if he had apologised to his accuser Virginia Giuffre Roberts years ago, sources have claimed. The second son of Britain's Queen Elizabeth is currently facing the prospect of appearing in a New York court to face the allegations, after Ms Roberts brought a civil lawsuit against him. Virginia Giuffre Roberts claims the Duke of York slept with her three times when she was 17. Andrew has repeatedly and strenuously denied the allegations over the years. 'Virginia has always just wanted the prince to acknowledge that he did something he shouldn't have, she wants him to apologize. She has never made this all about money,' a source close to Ms Roberts told the New York Post.  'I think she would have dropped this a long, long time ago had the prince said he was guilty of wrongdoing, but he's embroiled in denial which has brought him down.'   Pictured: Britain's Prince Andrew, Duke of York attends the Sunday service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor, England, in April 2021. Andrew could...
    Brent Stirton, Getty Images A CBS poll released on New Year’s weekend shows that four in 10 Democrats consider Republicans to be the “enemy” rather than just political opposition, and one that threatens their “entire way of life.” Even more Republicans feel that way about Democrats. And the numbers are higher still among ideological liberals and conservatives. The CBS News/YouGov survey included questions on how people feel about the events of Jan. 6, 2021 a year later, including what word or phrase best describes what took place. One question, asked of each party about the other, could say a lot about just how divided Americans will remain in the weeks and months ahead. The survey found that 43% of Democrats feel Republicans are not simply political rivals but genuine enemies who pose a real threat to their way of life. One year on from the Capitol breach, 57% of Democrats think of Republicans as simply “political opposition.” When you look at the results by ideology it climbs, with 51% of self-identifying Democrats who are liberals saying they consider Republicans a...
    Progressive House members are rallying behind a push for a four-day work week.  The legislation, spearheaded by Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., would shorten the standard US work week from 40 hours to 32 hours by lowering the maximum threshold for overtime pay to kick in for non-exempt employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act.   Salaried employees and gig workers are excluded from overtime pay requirements.  The 95- member House Progressive Caucus endorsed the plan this week.  'After a nearly two-year-long pandemic that forced millions of people to explore remote work options, it's safe to say that we can't – and shouldn't – simply go back to normal, because normal wasn't working,' Takano said in a statement on the bill.  'People were spending more time at work, less time with loved ones, their health and well-being was worsening, and all the while, their pay has remained stagnant.' 'It is past time that we put people and communities over corporations and their profits — finally prioritizing the health, wellbeing, and basic human dignity of the working class rather than their employers' bottom...
    Simply put, according to the Washington Post, the Taliban and its numerous agents have become adept at following the rules of Twitter.Why Trump’s banned and the Taliban aren’t: they play by the rules. https://t.co/5y5no9ZnmN — mark seibel (@mark seibel)1629296914.0What are the details?"The Taliban of today is immensely savvy with technology and social media — nothing like the group it was 20 years ago," Rita Katz, executive director of SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors online extremism, told the Post. Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen, for example, sports over 350,000 Twitter followers, the paper said. "The Islamic Emirate has ordered its Mujahideen and once again instructs them that no one is allowed to enter anyone's house without permission," Shaheen tweeted Sunday as the Taliban rolled through Afghanistan and took over Kabul. "Life, property and honor of none shall be harmed but must be protected by the Mujahedeen." Trump — the former leader of the free world who still enjoys an immense following — couldn't tweet about his latest round of golf at Mar-a-Lago if he got down on his knees and begged Twitter...
    An Alabama councilman is refusing to apologize after he was caught on camera using the n-word during a local government meeting. Tarrant City Council member Tommy Bryant deployed the racist epithet during a public session held in the city on Monday night.  Video from the meeting shows Bryant, 76, standing up and stating: 'Do we have a house n****r in here?'. He was purportedly referring to black female council member, Veronica Freeman.   However, on Wednesday, the veteran councilman told local news outlets that he would not say sorry and that his words had been taken out of context.  Bryant claimed that he was only repeating what he had heard the city's black mayor, Wayman Newton, say about Freeman.    He also claimed that he and Freeman were allies and that they had been working together in recent months to block proposals that Mayor Newton has initiated.   'I did what needed to be done. It needed to be brought to light what kind of a person the mayor is,' Bryant told WVTM-TV. Bryant (left) claimed that he was only repeating...
    Executives at Delta Air Lines are unhappy the current strain of the coronavirus which is fast spreading throughout the United States shares the same name as their company. The Coronavirus Delta variant was previously known as the Indian variant, and is based on the mutation's origin.  The names were officially changed by the World Health Organization in May, using the Greek alphabet to prevent stigma and simplify discussion, but that does little to stop people making a connection between already-established brands which also share the name.  Executives with Delta Air Lines are unhappy the latest coronavirus variant shares the same name as the company 'We just call it the variant,' Delta CEO Ed Bastian, pictured, said in an interview 'We just call it the variant,' Delta CEO Ed Bastian said in an interview to the Wall Street Journal.   Bastian says so far there has been no significant lull in bookings as a result of the connection. 'We haven't seen any drop off at all,' Bastian confirmed.  'We prefer to call it the B.1.617.2 variant since that is so much...

    (CNN)Despite her dying wish that she not be replaced until a new president is installed, President Donald J. Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell barely waited a few hours following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before announcing their intention to do just that. No one should forget that it was McConnell who blocked a Senate confirmation process for former President Barack Obama's Supreme Court pick, Merrick Garland, following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February of 2016 because, McConnell argued, the seat should not be filled before a national election nearly nine months away. Maya Rockeymoore CummingsThe disrespect and blatant hypocrisy displayed by Trump and McConnell perfectly encapsulates the political perversion we've seen over nearly four years. From Trump's depraved attacks against undocumented immigrants to his nasty and divisive rhetoric to his seemingly never ending list of scandals and his gross mishandling of Covid-19, Trump's toxic combination of political inexperience, mendacity and cunning have brought heartache, anxiety and loss to far too many Americans. That he has been protected by Republicans who have engaged in...
    We all know someone who shrugs off their hearing loss as just another inevitability of older age. But really, according to the latest research, alarm bells should be ringing. Astonishingly, hearing loss in mid-life raises the risk of dementia later on by up to 40 per cent, according to some studies. That makes it the leading preventable cause of dementia, experts say. The Lancet Commission found that a deterioration in hearing between the ages of 45 and 64 should be treated immediately, and that simply wearing a hearing aid could significantly reduce the risk of developing the devastating condition in the first place. In fact its findings have revealed that if all hearing loss was promptly treated, nearly one in ten dementia cases could be wiped out. Astonishingly, hearing loss in mid-life raises the risk of dementia later on by up to 40 per cent, making it the leading preventable cause of dementia, according to some studies Professor Gill Livingston, who led the Lancet Commission’s review, says: ‘Suddenly we have an enormous opportunity to prevent disease. A lot of...
