    CHELSEA visit Anfield on Saturday hoping to record consecutive league victories for the first time since October. But they face a tall order - even against an out of form Liverpool side. 3Thiago Silva is the only Chelsea player to make the combined defenceCredit: Getty 3Cody Gakpo is still searching for his first Liverpool goalCredit: Getty The Reds have lost their last two league games and were outplayed by Brighton last weekend, but they did beat Wolves in the FA Cup on Tuesday. And they still possess some of the best players in the league, despite the injury to Virgil van Dijk. Chelsea have also been hit by an injury crisis with Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Wesley Fofana and N'Golo Kante all long-term absentees. Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic have also picked up injuries in recent weeks, while Dennis Zakaria limped out of the recent clash at Fulham and will be out for a month. January signing Joao Felix serves the second of his three-match ban and that means Liverpool dominate SunSport's combined line-up of available players. Alisson gets the...
    The U.S. is expected a hit the ceiling on Thursday, forcing the Treasury Department to start using 'extraordinary measures' so the government can keep paying bills while Congress negotiates to try and avoid an economic meltdown. American debt is now at an eye-watering $31.38 trillion - that's 120 percent of GDP, up from 39.2 percent as recently as 2008 and 77.6 percent in 2018. The staggering figure is the highest since the Second World War, equals $246,876 in federal debt per taxpayer and is more than the economies of China, Japan, Germany and the United Kingdom combined. The 'extraordinary measures', set to be initiated Thursday, refers to accounting workarounds to ensure financial liquidity to keep the government open through at least June, according to a letter sent by Treasury Secretary Yellen to Speaker Kevin McCarthy on January 13. If a deal is not made by the Summer, the fallout could result in a global economic crisis. Since 1960 Congress has raised, extended or revised the debt limit 78 times when it the U.S. has hits its borrowing cap. Between now...
    An adventurous couple could have the opportunity of a lifetime by running a 150-year-old lighthouse-turned bed and breakfast on an island in the San Francisco Bay. East Brother Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast is looking for two new innkeepers to replace its current keepers Stephanie and Bryan Wesolek in April. The Wesoleks had also previously been innkeepers in 2014.  Every two years the lighthouse changes innkeepers, whose job is to maintain the bed and breakfast and chauffeur guests to and from the island.  The gorgeous property sits on a one-acre island in the San Francisco Bay near the tip of Point San Pablo.  The lighthouse has been an active lighthouse since 1873 and, in 1979, was restored and transformed into a cozy five-bedroom inn to help raise money for the lighthouse's operations.  East Brother Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast (pictured) is looking for two new innkeepers The gorgeous property sits on a one acre island off the coast of the San Francisco Bay and is near the tip of Point San Pablo In order to be considered for the job of maintaining the...
    America's leading drug officials are turning their attention towards social media platforms - as they warn fentanyl dealers are now in every teenagers' pockets. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) said it is investigating 120 cases of a fentanyl overdose that involve purchases made on the sites. It also warns that emoji code languages are used for young buyers to avoid suspicion from their parents. Fentanyl has single-handedly fueled a new drug epidemic in the US. The synthetic opioid was responsible for 70 percent of the more than 100,000 overdose deaths in 2021 and the number of teens killed by the drug has tripled since the pandemic began. It is used as a potent cutting agent, with drug dealers lacing everything from cocaine, Xanax and Percocet. But the frighteningly strong drug can kill at doses of just 2 milligrams of fentanyl - or the equivalent of five grains of salt. The DEA warns that teens are using emojis as code to purchase illicit drugs. These include a pill to signify Percocet, Adderall and MDMA, plant emojis to mean marijuana and snow to represent cocaine....

    In this article VLDR OUST Follow your favorite stocksCREATE FREE ACCOUNTThe New York Stock Exchange welcomes Ouster Inc. (NYSE: OUST), today, Friday, March 12, 2021, in celebration of its Initial Listing. To honor the occasion, Ouster CEO Angus Pacala, joined by Chris Taylor, Vice President, NYSE Listings and Services, rings The Opening Bell®.NYSELidar makers Ouster and Velodyne have agreed to merge, combining roughly $400 million in market value. The companies said on Monday that they will join forces to increase their competitiveness in a market segment that has seen valuations plummet as investors have grown disillusioned with autonomous-vehicle technology. Lidar, short for "light detection and ranging," is a sensor technology that uses invisible lasers to create a highly detailed 3-D map of the sensor's surroundings. Lidar sensors are considered important components of nearly all autonomous-vehicle systems currently under development, and are finding increasing applications with advanced driver-assist systems as well as other areas of robotics. Intense investor interest in the potential of self-driving vehicles led many lidar startups to go public over the last few years. But valuations are...
    Pfizer and BioNTech announced Thursday they have begun an early-stage study to test a combination vaccine for COVID-19 and the flu. The vaccine will combine the drugmakers' updated COVID-19 booster targeting the original strain of the COVID-19 virus from 2020 and omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5 with the influenza shot in hopes of simplifying the process for vaccinating individuals against both diseases at once. PFIZER CLAIMS PROMISING RESULTS FOR MATERNAL RSV VACCINE IN PROTECTING INFANTS "By combining both indications in one vaccine approach, we aim to provide individuals with an efficient way to receive immunization against two severe respiratory diseases with evolving viruses that require vaccine adaptation,” said Ugur Sahin, CEO and co-founder of BioNTech. “The data will also provide us with more insights on the potential of mRNA vaccines addressing more than one pathogen.

    EVERY time Harry Kane and Son Heung-min tee each other up for yet another goal, Darren Anderton earns a little more respect in his new home of California. For when Tottenham’s dynamic pair link up in the Premier League, the list of the division’s most deadly duos is often referenced on stateside telly. 3Son Heung-min and Harry Kane have 50 combined goals for SpursCredit: AFP 3Darren Anderton and Teddy Sheringham combined for 27 Premier League goalsCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd Son and Kane lead the way on 43 combined goals, and reached 50 in all competitions with the Spurs’ opener in Wednesday’s helter-skelter 3-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. Yet still standing strong in fifth place is Anderton and Teddy Sheringham, who served each other with 27 strikes in the 90s. It serves as a timely reminder of just how good a player the former England wideman, now 50, was to the uninitiated in his new sunny surroundings. Anderton told SunSport: “When those stats come up about Harry and Son, going through that top five of Premier League combinations for goals,...
    The National Archives slapped former President Donald Trump Tuesday for making 'false and misleading' claims about ex-presidents mishandling documents - including that the late President George H.W. Bush was personally storing files at a combined bowling alley and Chinese restaurant.  'The National Archives and Records Administration, in accordance with the Presidential Records Act, assumed physical and legal custody of the Presidential records from the administrations of Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan, when those presidents left office,' said a statement from the Archives. Those documents were securely moved to temporary facilies that NARA rented out at locations near where the presidents would build their libraries, the statement explained.  'All such temporary facilities met strict archival and security standards, and have been managed and staffed exclusively by NARA employees,' it continued. 'Reports that indicate or imply that those Presidential records were in the possession of the former Presidents or their representatives, after they left office, or that the records were housed in substandard conditions, are false and misleading.'  The statement neglects to mention Trump's...
    About 35 years ago, if a shortstop drove in 99 runs and clocked 25 homers, they’d be tried as a witch. That’s exactly what Francisco Lindor has done this season though, and with 11 games to spare, the switch-hitting straw that stirs the Mets’ drink will finish the season with even prettier numbers. In 1987, the average MLB shortstop slashed .258/.315/.365 (.680 OPS) with an 80 wRC+, meaning as a collective, shortstops were 20% worse than the league’s average hitter. Entering Friday’s series opener in Oakland, Lindor is flexing a .271/.344/.454 slash line (.798 OPS) and 130 wRC+. With four more RBI, he will break Carlos Guillen’s single-season record for runs driven in by a switch-hitting shortstop. The evolution of the modern, slugging shortstop is one of many changes that have swept through the games in recent years, and Lindor is perhaps the most prime example of how a guy who hits like a corner outfielder but fields like a middle infielder is the most valuable type of player a team can have. His partner in the cleanup spot, meanwhile,...
    That’s a whole lot of money for some baseballs. Aaron Judge is at the brink of achieving history as he is one home run shy of tying Roger Maris’ American League and Yankees home run record of 61. With 13 games to go, the slugger is on pace to finish the season with 65 homers. A lucky fan who catches Judge’s 62nd home run could land themselves a nice payday worth at least $500,000, according to SCP Auctions President David Kohler. Kohler added that Judge’s final home run ball of the season after surpassing Maris’ milestone, which would be the new record, could worth upwards of $1 million. “It’s based on other sales we’ve made in the past,” Kohler said when asked how his company came up with estimates for Judge’s home run balls. “We’ve handled a lot of home run balls over the years.” The California-based auction house, which has been in business for over 40 years, sold Barry Bond’s record 756th home run ball for $752,467 in 2007. Also, the auction house sold Alex Rodriguez’s 600th home run...
    Former President Donald Trump has amassed at least $99 million in the bank for his Save America PAC – a sum that gives him tremendous ability to help shape the Republican field, but that faces restrictions should he run for president. Trump has yet to say he is an official candidate for president, giving him more flexibility in collecting and spending the funds. Under the current scenario, he has doled out money to fund 'election defense' for staffers who went before the House January 6 committee, funded presidential portraits, aided political allies. His campaign cash haul is coming under new scrutiny, after revelations  about dozens of grand jury subpoenas to Trump associates. Sitting on top of more than $115 million across several political committees, Trump has positioned himself as a uniquely indomitable force in the GOP who would almost certainly have the resources to swamp his rivals if he launched another presidential campaign. The money advantage matches his polling advantage on other Republicans, even as he faces a slew of investigations, including a Justice Department probe of national security documents...

    Demand for plastic surgery procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts and tummy tucks have surged coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, with experts citing an increase in disposable income and more people suffering self-esteem issues as the cause. Researchers at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) found that 76 percent of the nation's plastic surgeons are seeing increased demand for their services now when compared to pre-pandemic levels. Nearly a fourth report their business doubling. Procedures like liposuctions, facelifts, breast augmentation, tummy tucks and breast lifts were named the most common. There are multiple reasons for this increase. More than 75 percent of patients are willing to spend more on cosmetic surgery now than before, doctors report, even despite growing economic uncertainty in the U.S.  This is because many saved money from not going on vacations and partaking in other activities for a year as a result of the pandemic led to many having more disposable income than before. Work from home culture also allowed many more time to stay at home and recover from procedures. Some experts have...
    (CNN Business)Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens must pay a combined $650.6 million to two Ohio counties for damages related to the opioid crisis, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.US District Judge Dan Aaron Polster ruled that over the next 15 years, approximately $306.2 million must be paid to Lake County and approximately $344.4 million must be paid to Trumbull County.All three companies were found liable for their role in the opioid epidemic in both Lake and Trumbull counties last November. Polster presided over separate proceedings in May to determine how much money should be awarded.The lawsuit, which was initially filed in 2018, was part of the federal multi-district litigation created that year to address the manifold claims against opioid manufacturers and distributors.The counties alleged that the pharmacies "abused their position of special trust and responsibility" as registered dispensers of controlled drugs, and in so doing "fostered a black market for prescription opioids," the complaint reads.Read MorePolster wrote in his ruling that the awarded damages are meant to "address a small piece of a terrible and tenacious and escalating national tragedy.""Even if the...

    NEW YORK (AP) — New York Mets starter Tylor Megill and four relievers combined on the first no-hitter of the Major League Baseball season, teaming up to throw a whopping 159 pitches and beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-0 Friday night. Megill was pulled after five innings and 88 pitches. The bullpen took over from there, with Drew Smith, Joely Rodríguez, Seth Lugo and Edwin Díaz completing the second no-hitter in Mets history. Díaz finished it off in style, striking out Bryce Harper, Nick Castellanos and J.T. Realmuto in the ninth. Mets pitchers combined to fan 13 and walk six. Johan Santana threw the Mets’ only previous no-hitter on June 1, 2012, when he struck out eight and needed 134 pitches in an 8-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Mets began play as an expansion team in 1962. Mets center fielder Brandon Nimmo made the best defensive play, running to make diving catch on Jean Segura’s sinking liner in right-center to end the third.

    As of this writing, the national average fuel price is $4.24 per gallon, according to the American Automobile Association. Up 20% from a month ago, gas prices aren’t likely to taper or deflate unless crude oil supply improves or consumer demand softens. Until that happens, costly fill-ups are hitting Americans who are already grappling with inflation. Understandably, drivers are keen to keep their fuel bills in check. Purchasing a new vehicle solely for better fuel economy isn’t usually a wise decision, and that’s especially true in today’s shortage-plagued car-buying market. But if you were already shopping for a new SUV, now’s a great time to consider a more fuel-efficient model.

    Alex IskoldCourtesy: Alex Iskold A little over a month into Russia's assault on Ukraine, Alex Iskold is trying to reckon with the reality in his homeland while lending a hand the best way he knows how. Iskold, who immigrated to the U.S. from Ukraine at age 19, is a venture capitalist and managing director of 2048 Ventures in New York. He's also a tech entrepreneur and co-founder of the 1K Project, a nonprofit that allows anyone to donate $1,000 directly to a Ukrainian family. So far, the project has raised more than $3.5 million and helped 3,500 families. But Iskold, now 49, knows the crisis ahead for Ukraine, a country of 44 million people, is poised to deepen no matter when the fighting ends. More than 4 million Ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries, with more than half entering Poland, as the Russian military has pounded population centers. Millions more are certain to lack basic necessities far into the future, and will need money for food, medicine, clothing and transportation. "There's a lot of ways you can donate, but when you...

Kentucky, the No. 2 seed in the East Region and a trendy pick to win the national championship, is out of the NCAA Tournament after falling to No. 15 seed Saint Peter’s 85-79 in overtime. Smothering defense made the difference for the Peacocks, who allowed Oscar Tshiebwe to go for 30 points but held the rest of the Wildcats to a combined 49 points. Kentucky’s guards were a disaster as TyTy Washington (2-of-10 from the floor), Kellan Grady (1-of-9) and Davion Mintz (3-of-7) combined for 23 points. Saint Peter’s was also extremely efficient on the offensive end as guards Daryl Banks III and Doug Edert combined for 47 points on 14-of-26 shooting, including a combined seven three-pointers. The win from the Peacocks was the first by a MAAC school since 2004 and blew up...

According to a March 16 report from The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, the “Teen Mom” franchise isn’t as popular with viewers as it used to be and MTV might combine “Teen Mom OG” and “Teen Mom 2” in an effort to save the series. If they did merge the shows, some of the main cast — 10 women in total — could get fired. Nothing has been confirmed as of now, and not all of the cast members are aware of the potential plan. One option is keeping most of the stars, but only focusing on the women who have an interesting storyline. “There are just too many people working on this franchise and it’s not bringing in the ratings and money it once did,” one insider told The Ashely’s Reality Roundup. “They needed to come up with a way to keep the show going but in a cheaper way. The casts’ salaries are enormous and it costs a lot of...

    A disgraced Navy nuclear engineer and his wife face a combined 20 years in prison for to trying to sell secrets about American nuclear-powered warships to Brazil. Jonathan Toebbe, 43, and his Trump-hating wife, Diana, were arrested last October after prosecutors said he approached a foreign government in an attempt to provide the nation with thousands of pages of stolen classified documents about the nuclear reactors that power the U.S. submarine fleet. The identity of the foreign power had been concealed by federal prosecutors, although it is widely speculated to have been France after investigators revealed the Toebbes had contacted a friendly foreign power, rather than an adversary. However, a senior Brazilian official and others familiar with the investigation confirmed have since confirmed Toebbe approached a Brazilian leader, the New York Times reported on Tuesday. Analysts allege Toebbe's outreach was an 'odd choice' given then-President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro had strengthened the alliance between the countries. Some argue at that time U.S.-Brazilian relations were the closest they'd been in decades. Confirmation that Toebbe contacted Brazil comes one month after he pleaded guilty in...

    Russia's wealthiest individuals have lost $83 billion since the beginning of this year, it was reported on Tuesday - with the majority of the losses since their country invaded Ukraine six days ago. Joe Biden, in his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, warned the country's businessmen that their financial situation would only worsen. 'Tonight I say to the Russian oligarchs and corrupt leaders who have bilked billions of dollars off this violent regime: no more,' Biden said. 'I mean it. 'The U.S. Department of Justice is assembling a dedicated task force to go after the crimes of Russian oligarchs.' He said they would 'find and seize their yachts, their apartments'. Twenty two Russians currently feature on Bloomberg's Billionaire's list, which ranks the world's 500 wealthiest people. The heaviest losses have been taken by Vagit Alekperov, the 71-year-old president of Lukoil, the publicly traded producer of about 2 percent of the world's oil production.

    BEIJING (AP) — Not long after Mikaela Shiffrin skied off-course for the third time in five races at the Beijing Olympics, she wondered aloud to reporters about what sort of vitriol might be directed her way. “There’s going to be a whole chaotic mess … that people are saying about how I just fantastically failed these last couple weeks in the moments that actually counted,” the two-time gold medalist at other Winter Games said after failing to finish the slalom run of the two-leg Alpine combined on Thursday. “It’s really strange, but I’m not even afraid of that right now. Maybe that’s because I have zero emotional energy to give anymore.” Hours later, the 26-year-old American went on Twitter to post what seemed to be a series of comments she might have seen on social media in reaction to Thursday’s fall, which followed similar mistakes in the giant slalom and slalom last week. Some examples of what she included: “Choker,” “Can’t handle the pressure,” “Arrogant.” Shiffrin followed that up with a tweet referring to “the people who have so...
    BEIJING (AP) — Michelle Gisin’s second straight Olympic title in the Alpine combined lifted Switzerland’s ski team to new heights. Gisin won Thursday’s two-leg race on the Ice River course, completing her slalom run shortly after Mikaela Shiffrin again skied off course. That gave the Swiss team a record fifth Alpine gold medal at the Beijing Games. No country has even won so many Alpine events at one Winter Games. Gisin beat Switzerland teammate Wendy Holdener by more than a second. Federica Brignone of Italy was third. All three had already won medals in China. Gisin took bronze in the super-G, Holdener earned bronze in the slalom and Brignone won a silver in the giant slalom. Switzerland’s other gold medalists were Corinne Suter in the women’s downhill, Lara Gut-Behrami in the women’s super-G, Marco Odermatt in the men’s giant slalom and Beat Feuz in the men’s downhill. Shiffrin was fifth-fastest in the downhill portion of the race but the two-time Olympic champion went out without making it to the bottom in the slalom leg. The American won a silver medal...

    OBERHOFEN, Switzerland (AP) — The last scheduled World Cup meeting in cross-country skiing before the Beijing Olympics was canceled on Monday to protect athletes from the risk of COVID-19 infection in Slovenia. Planica was to host events from Jan. 21-23 in cross-country skiing and Nordic combined for men and women. “Due to the current acute development of the pandemic in Slovenia, the safety of stakeholders involved at those large-scale events could not be guaranteed,” the International Ski Federation (FIS) said. Any athlete testing positive for COVID-19 so soon before traveling to the Winter Games that open on Feb. 4 risks being quarantined and denied entry to China. FIS said it will look to find a replacement venue for the World Cup events in both disciplines. A men’s Nordic combined meeting is already scheduled in Austria later this month. ___ More AP Winter Olympics: https://apnews.com/hub/winter-olympics and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.
