    MOST people have a friend with a truck, but fewer people may know how these motorists feel when they’re asked if they can lend their vehicle for a moving job. Luckily, American Trucks published a study highlighting which pickup owners are most and least likely to help you transition from one residence to another. 2American Trucks conducted a survey requesting information on how pickup drivers feel when people ask to borrow their truck for a moveCredit: Getty American Trucks found that 77 percent of pickup owners feel annoyed when they’re asked for help moving.

    Getty Seth Curry #30, Patty Mills #8, and Kevin Durant #7 of the Brooklyn Nets react during the second half against the New York Knicks The Brooklyn Nets made a decision to part ways with their head coach Steve Nash on November 1. At the time, it was expected that disgraced Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka would be the next in line on the Brooklyn bench. However, ‘strong voices‘ within the Nets organization urged the franchise to rethink the hiring, and the job was officially given to interim head coach Jacque Vaughn. Vaughn has publicly got the backing of players like Kevin Durant, Seth Curry and more.  One of the interesting developments since Vaughn took over at the helm of the Nets bench is that he has made some changes to the Nets’ rotations. Cam Thomas, who was largely out of the Nets rotation, has seen an increase from 7 minutes to 16.4 minutes per game in the month of November. Edmond Sumner has also been another guard that has seen more minutes. It’s veteran point guard Patty...
    It's a safe bet that the Oakland Athletics baseball team will leave the city for Las Vegas, according to MLB commissioner Rob Manfred. Manfred said in an interview Friday with Sirius XM that he is no longer optimistic that the A's will stay in Oakland. 'It just doesn't look like it's going to happen,' Manfred said. The Athletics' lease at the 56-year-old Oakland Coliseum ends after the 2024 season. It's a safe bet that the Oakland Athletics baseball team will leave the city for Las Vegas, according to MLB commissioner Rob Manfred Negotiations between the A's and Oakland officials on a new Howard Terminal stadium project are expected to drag into next year, which team president Dave Kaval has said would 'all but doom our efforts' to stay in the Bay Area.   The A's had hoped to build a 35,000-seat stadium as part of a housing and retail development.  The A's also ranked dead last in attendance this past season, averaging just 9,849 people per game.  It was the lowest average in baseball since the 2004 Montreal Expos, who moved...
    For the second year in a row, Bay Area residents are offering one of the most powerful critiques imaginable of their home: Most people who live here plan to leave. A new survey found more than half (53%) of registered voters queried by the Bay Area News Group and Joint Venture Silicon Valley say they’re likely to move out of the region in the next few years. It’s a sentiment felt by the young more than the old, by Republicans more than Democrats, and by the poor more than the wealthy — but it cuts across every group. “There are things about the Bay Area that are really troubling,” said Russell Hancock, president and CEO of Joint Venture, a business and labor consortium. Those who intend to flee cited housing costs, quality of life, taxes and homelessness as the most powerful motivators. Even some of those set on staying aren’t happy about it: Of those who don’t plan to leave the Bay Area, 15% said they want to move, but can’t. The discontent showed up in the news group’s initial...
    With Week 1 on the horizon, could Shane Buechele really unseat Chad Henne behind Patrick Mahomes on the Chiefs depth chart? Buechele has gotten the bulk of the snap this season behind center. Andy Reid and Co. wanted to see what they had in the young former Texas product, and he has made the most of those attempts. In his final preseason action on Thursday night against the Packers, Buechele went 11-for-17 with 166 yards and two touchdowns, thus outplaying his opponent, Jordan Love. Henne’s snaps have decreased every game, while Buechele continues to get playing time. / Could Henne, Mahomes backup for three seasons, really be on the outs? It would be a surprise, but given Henne’s advanced age (37), it could be on the horizon. FanSided’s Matt Verderame discussed this possibility in a recent article: “Henne isn’t likely to be cut — hence a surprise — but he’s got to be concerned about his position. He’s only played one series through two preseason games, while third-stringer and second-year man Shane Buechele has gotten the bulk of Kansas City’s snaps.”Could Chiefs...
    Both Democrats and Republicans are more likely to move to states that reflect their political views, indicating that self-segregation along ideological lines may increase parties' political advantages in former swing states over the coming years. More than a quarter of people in the United States, 30%, have considered moving out of state in the past six months, citing racial equality, lower taxes, LGBT protections, and more as reasons for moving, according to a new poll from Ipsos/Axios. Those considering a move are more likely to relocate to states where their preferred political parties are in power, the poll found. MARK MILLEY ACCUSED TRUMP OF ‘IRREPARABLE HARM’ IN UNSENT RESIGNATION LETTER: REPORT More than half of Democrats, 55%, said they would consider moving to a state that better reflects their political values, and just slightly below 58% of Republicans said the same, according to the poll.

    Majorities of young men and women say state abortion laws will at least “somewhat” impact where they choose to live and that such laws could impact their sexual behavior as well, a new Generation Lab/Axios poll found.  More than 60 percent of women between 18-29 years old and roughly 50 percent of men in that age group said how states handle abortion would at least “somewhat” affect where they choose to live. Combined, 58 percent of men and women said state abortion laws would impact where they live “somewhat” or “a lot.”  Unsurprisingly, Democrats (67 percent) were more likely than Republicans (36 percent) to say state abortion laws would impact where they choose to live.   “The fact that people are going to change where they live based on something like this tells you how important they think it is,” Generation Lab’s Cyrus Beschloss told Axios.  Women, if you are having a tough time with the #sexStrike and #abstinence just picture Mitch McConnel naked. pic.twitter.com/S5TcyK0axO — AJ (@HopeOverFear99) June 24, 2022 The potential for some states to outlaw or restrict abortion...

    Federal Reserve officials in June emphasized the need to fight inflation even if it meant slowing an economy that already appears on the brink of a recession, according to meeting minutes released Wednesday.In raising benchmark borrowing rates by three-quarters of a percentage point, central bankers said the move was necessary to control cost-of-living increases running at their highest levels since 1981.Members said the July meeting likely also would see another 50- or 75-basis point move. A basis point is one one-hundredth of 1 percentage point."Participants concurred that the economic outlook warranted moving to a restrictive stance of policy, and they recognized the possibility that an even more restrictive stance could be appropriate if elevated inflation pressures were to persist," the document said.They acknowledged that the policy tightening likely would come with a price."Participants recognized that policy firming could slow the pace of economic growth for a time, but they saw the return of inflation to 2 percent as critical to achieving maximum employment on a sustained basis," the meeting summary stated.The move to hike rates by 75 basis points followed...
    VIDEO2:2902:29Biden may propose a relatively modest list of China tariff suspensions: Law firmSquawk Box Asia President Joe Biden could decide "pretty soon" on a modest relief package to roll back some U.S. tariffs imposed on China in an effort to tamp down inflation, said Clete Willems, who previously served as deputy director at the National Economic Council. "What we are expecting that the president is deciding on is a relatively modest list of potential tariff suspensions in order to fight inflation. Some of the reports indicate that it's on the order of magnitude of about $10 billion out of over $360 billion that are currently being imposed on China," Willems, currently a partner at Akin Group, told CNBC's "Squawk Box Asia" on Wednesday. Willems, who was a top White House trade negotiator during the Trump administration, noted the move is likely to come together with other actions "that are perceived as tough on China" like a "potential new investigation into China's industrial subsidies." "That's really important for the Biden administration to manage things at home, so that they don't...
    Chicago Cubs closer David Robertson knows what awaits the next four weeks. Robertson, in his 14th big-league season, has been on the move ahead of the trade deadline once before and has seen plenty of teammates come and go during this month throughout the years. With the Aug. 2 trade deadline a month away, the Cubs will again be sellers. Robertson, who does not have trade protections in his contract, is expected to be on the move. “That’s the way it goes,” Robertson told the Tribune this week. “You never know how many people you’re going to run through in a season. The trade stuff is above my pay grade. It’s uncontrollable for me. So, I don’t know. I haven’t heard anything yet.” Robertson likely won’t be the only Cub jettisoned by Aug. 2. The clubhouse will look different four weeks from now, a familiar position after one-third of the 2021 opening day roster was dealt before last year’s trade deadline. Trade talks will heat up in the coming weeks. With that in mind, here’s a look at which Cubs...
    Getty Kyle Kuzma of the Washington Wizards, who teased Boston Celtics fans with a tweet. The Boston Celtics fell just short of their goal this past season, losing to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. Now, their focus will be on improving this offseason and attempting to make it all the way back next year for another chance to win it all. While the majority of their improvements will be internal, there are certainly ways they can improve externally. They don’t have a first-round pick, but attacking undrafted free agency and nailing their second-rounder should be a top priority. However, even more important than that will be scouring the trade market for potential moves. Well, one player just hinted that he could be interested in coming to Boston (kind of).

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago is expected to move into the CDC's high COVID transmission risk on Friday, Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady said Thursday.At a press conference Thursday, Dr. Arwady said moving into the high risk level means everyone should wear a face mask indoors, but stopped short of calling for a mask mandate. Arwady said the city would consider putting a mask mandate in place if the hospital system become stressed with cases.Arwady said moving into high risk means residents should make sure they are current on COVID booster shots.The average case count for the city is over 1,000 a day, but Dr. Arwady said there are signs that is plateauing.In addition to wearing a mask indoors, Arwady said residents should avoid crowded indoor gatherings, limit gatherings to small numbers and test right away if you have symptoms.Anyone who tests positive is asked to isolate for five days and if they are feeling better, they can go in public while wearing a mask for the next five days.
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- You may not need to wear a mask when you're on a plane, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is suggesting you do something else: get tested for COVID-19 as close to the time of your departure as possible or no more than three days before a trip.The concern is over the rise in new cases and an uptick in hospitalizations.The latest CDC guidance is to get tested before and after your flight, especially if you've been in high exposure situations."I really like that idea," said air traveler Bernice Mentzer of Washington. "I used to be a school teacher. I work with the public. I work with students. I'm always healthy and always wear my mask."But not everyone agrees with the recommendation."I think it's overkill," said Pat Koenig of Los Angeles. "I really do. We've decided not to travel internationally for that reason because you have to get tested. If I have to do it domestically. That's going to hamper even more travel by air, I think."This new guidance comes as L.A. County health...
    More than half of all states have some kind of abortion ban law set to take effect if Roe v Wade is overturned by the United States Supreme Court, according to a report. On Monday, a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion written by Samuel Alito and published by POLITICO revealed that the court has voted to strike down the landmark 1973 ruling, which legalized abortion in the United States. Alito wrote in part, 'Roe was egregiously wrong from the start.'  According to the pro-reproductive rights group The Guttmacher Institute, at least 22 states have laws on the books that would come into effect once the decision is officially adopted. The organization also identified four more states that it expects to pass new abortion bans in the near future, marking a total of 26 states that appear set to ban the procedures. The 18 states that have near-total bans on abortion already on the books are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.  In addition, Georgia, Iowa,...

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has offered supporters a transfer update amid continuing speculation the Catalans will try to sign a striker during the summer window. Laporta was asked by a fan after Barcelona’s 1-0 win over Real Sociedad about rumors the club could bring in Bayern Munich goal machine Robert Lewandowski ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

    Getty Collin Sexton, Cavaliers The NBA playoffs are underway but behind the scenes around the league, teams are already jockeying for summer position, lining up potential targets to chase in free agency. The Knicks are, according to executives, keeping themselves ready to make a major move—if one presents itself, that is. There has been the usual talk about swinging a deal with Utah for Donovan Mitchell, and the Knicks are in position to make such a move, with all their own picks on hand, plus a first-rounder from Dallas next year, along with a total of four 2023 second-rounders. But there remains some question about whether Utah would make a move on Mitchell, and whether the Knicks—not the Miami Heat—would be favorites to bring him in. Point guard Jalen Brunson of the Mavericks has been a rumored target, too, and he will be a free agent this summer. But he has priced himself out of the Knicks’ salary-cap range, meaning the only way the Knicks could get him is in a sign-and-trade. Given the way Brunson and the...

    FORMER Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is likely to return to the Premier League in the summer, according to reports. That should alert fierce rivals Arsenal and Tottenham, who were both linked with the Spaniard before the transfer window slammed shut. 1Alvaro Morata could reportedly be heading back to the Premier League in summer Morata, 29, is on loan at Juventus from Atletico Madrid.

Military analysts have suggested Russia could send its forces through Belarus to stretch out Ukraine's defences, taking advantage of their shared 700-mile border.    Lukashenko and his security henchmen have pointed to an alleged build-up of Ukrainian forces near his border, suggesting this justifies a stronger military presence.

It plans to offer young professionals thousands of dollars if they move in and commit to launching a business, preferably a business the community needs. Northwest Arkansas has a similar program to draw new residents to rural towns like Springdale by offering $10,000 and a mountain bike. Lincoln, Kansas, is offering free land to remote workers who are willing to relocate and build a home there. These efforts take advantage of the growing work-from-home culture to try to revitalize rural communities that are in decline. They may also hold a key to coping with anticipated domestic climate migration as storms and wildfires exacerbated by climate change make parts of the country unlivable. As professors and authors focused on sustainability, we see ways in which projects like these might help solve both the challenge of rural population loss and the likely acceleration of migration from climate-insecure cities. While this proposal may not...
    "The Silicon Valley Poll is a survey of 1,610 registered voters in five Bay Area counties (Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, San Francisco, Contra Costa)," the poll explains. "The survey was placed in the field September 21-26, 2021 by Embold Research, a division of Change Research Inc., on behalf of Joint Venture Silicon Valley and its research arm, the Institute for Regional Studies." "It's housing, stupid," president and CEO of Joint Venture Silicon Valley Russell Hancock said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "That is driving almost all of the results we see in this poll." Walgreens is planning to close down five more of its San Francisco store locations next month because of "organized retail crime." "Organized retail crime continues to be a challenge facing retailers across San Francisco, and we are not immune to that," a Walgreens spokesperson noted in a statement, according to Fox Business. "Retail theft across our San Francisco stores has continued to increase in the past few months to five times our chain average. During this time to help combat this issue, we increased...
    MOHAMED SALAH has handed Liverpool something of a dilemma. The Egyptian forward, 29, has under two years left to run on his £200,000-a-week contract - with rumours suggesting he wants a hefty pay rise. 6Liverpool are looking to tie down Mohamed Salah to a new contract but are assessing replacements just in case he quitsCredit: Getty The Reds are locked in talks with Salah over an extension, with negotiations intensifying amid his sensational start to the 2021-22 season. Salah is arguably the best player in the world at the moment on form. And with Kylian Mbappe destined to leave Paris Saint-Germain next summer, the French giants are keen to replace him with Salah, according to reports. Real Madrid are also long-term admirers with Salah having a decision to make. Aged 29, does the wing wizard take what could be his last chance for a big move or decide to end his career at Anfield? Liverpool won't shell out monstrous wages akin to Alexis Sanchez's £505,000 per week at Manchester United and will likely look to keep Salah this side of...
    Getty The Dallas Cowboys have a lot of regrets when it comes to Jaylon Smith. The Dallas Cowboys are prepared to abruptly release Jaylon Smith after rumors swirled about his future throughout the offseason. More surprising than the Cowboys releasing Smith is the fact the team could not find a trade partner to even land a late-round future draft pick for the former Pro Bowl linebacker. CBS Sports’ Patrik Walker reported the Cowboys received trade offers for Smith in the spring but turned them down likely due to the attractiveness of the potential deals combined with the uncertainty of their rookies. “The Cowboys were getting trade interest on Jaylon Smith in the spring, but didn’t pull any triggers — presumably not liking the offers combined with wanting to see how the LB rotation would shake out w/ two rookies in the mix,” Walker noted on Twitter. “Now, I’m told, trade interest waned so, released.” ALL the latest Dallas Cowboys news straight to your inbox!

    ARSENAL star Bernd Leno could seek a January transfer to avoid falling down the Germany pecking order, according to reports. Leno has been replaced as the Gunners' no 1 goalkeeper since Aaron Ramsdale arrived in the summer and he admitted he has found the change "difficult". 1Aaron Ramsdale (left) has taken Bernd Leno's place in the Arsenal team And if Mikel Arteta continues to pick Ramsdale ahead of Leno the German could seek a move in January. According to German outlet Fussball, Leno may be pushed to leave in order to safeguard his place in the Germany squad. The report states he is at risk of losing his place to Frankfurt's Kevin Trapp, who has impressed with his recent form. To avoid that Leno needs to impress too - but he will only be able to do so if he is playing regularly. And since Arteta has refused to give Leno any assurances with regard to playing time, the shot-stopper could seek a move elsewhere. Inter Milan are reportedly eyeing Leno in a potential summer transfer - but he could...
    ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (CBS) — The idea of a move to Arlington Heights by the Bears is getting mixed reviews in the northwest suburbs. As CBS 2’s Chris Tye reported Wednesday, some neighbors have worries, while others are hoping to cash in. READ MORE: CFD: At Least 4 People Shot Across 2 Sites In West LoopAt Arlington International Racecourse – the former home of the Arlington Million – the million-dollar question is, how likely is the move to happen, really? For the first time in a long time, locals who have lived in and around Arlington Heights for decadesthink it is really likely. “It just kind of feels like they’re pulling the city into the burbs,” said Heidi Michals, a neighbor to Arlington Racecourse. Michals’ house is as close to Arlington Racecourse as you can get. The idea of trading horses for Bears on that slice of real-estate is something she’s not wild about. “I just kind of cringe at that,” she said.

China has applied to join CPTPP, an 11-nation trade pact formed in 2018 after the U.S. withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.Fred Dufour | AFP | Getty Images China will likely fail in its bid to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership — but its move to submit an application highlighted the lack of U.S. economic policy in Asia-Pacific, said analysts. CPTPP is an 11-nation mega trade pact formed in 2018 after Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership a year earlier. President Barack Obama had negotiated the TPP to deepen U.S. economic engagement in Asia-Pacific and counter China's growing influence in the region.

    ARSENAL are likely to be without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette for their London derby against Chelsea. But the Gunners are set to keep the pair after Tammy Abraham's move to Roma. 3Arsenal are likely to be without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette against ChelseaCredit: Getty 3Tammy Abraham is due to sign for Roma from ChelseaCredit: Getty Aubameyang, 32, and Lacazette, 30, were both sidelined in Arsenal's opening day 2-0 defeat away to Premier League newcomers Brentford. They were both ill, and according to The Times, they might not recover in time to return to training for Chelsea's visit. It is also claimed Arsenal were open to selling the duo, despite captain Aubameyang only signing a three-year deal, worth a reported £350,000-a-week, last year. But Frenchman Lacazette is now in the final year of his Emirates deal, and able to negotiate a free transfer away in January. Arsenal had registered an interest in Abraham, 23, who Chelsea allowed to leave after re-signing Romelu Lukaku, 28, for £97.5million. But the England striker has instead moved closer...
    (CNN)The Biden administration has informed Congress of a proposed $750 million weapons sale to Taiwan in a move likely to further inflame tensions with Beijing.The administration gave notice about the intended sale on Wednesday, according to a State Department spokesperson, two congressional sources, and a notification from the Defense Security Cooperation Agency. The deal includes 40 M109A6 Medium Self-Propelled Howitzer Systems and related equipment. "If concluded, this proposed sale will contribute to the modernization of Taiwan's howitzer fleet, strengthening its self-defense capabilities to meet current and future threats," the spokesperson said.One of the congressional sources told CNN that Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Robert Menendez had already cleared the sale as part of the informal review process -- a common practice in which the House and Senate Foreign Relations Committees get a heads-up on planned sales, allowing committee leadership to raise concerns, give their input or place holds. The US and China say they want to avoid military conflict, but no one can agree on howThis source said Menendez sees it "as yet another statement of the Biden administration's serious...
    The White House said Wednesday that an 'old school' President Biden would not have pushed for an extension of the expired eviction moratorium if he didn't believe it had 'legal standing.' The statement came a day after Biden himself revealed scholars he had consulted believed such a move would not pass 'constitutional muster' – an admission that suggested Biden shopped for different attorneys who would tell him the move was legal. The extension, which came in a new Centers for Disease Control targeted moratorium issued Tuesday evening, came after intense pressure from congressional Democrats, including a sit-in on the Capitol steps by Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.). 'The president would not have moved forward with a step where he didn't' feel comfortable and confident in the legal justification,' said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki when pressed on the new eviction moratorium 'The president would not have moved forward with a step where he didn't' feel comfortable and confident in the legal justification,' said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.  She rejected a question at Wednesday's press briefing that the...
    The MLB trade deadline can be a tough time for fantasy baseball players. When a marquee player moves from one team to another, unless you are playing in an AL or NL-only league, the value doesn’t often change. But when a player such as a middle-reliever or a committee-closer goes on the move, there can be a ripple of effects that can cause a major shift in your league’s standings. Chasing saves has been a daunting task at times this season, and watching some of the reliever movement we’ve witnessed near the deadline has likely left a number of fantasy owners on edge. When Washington sent Brad Hand to Toronto, the waiver wire suddenly became a hotbed of action. The assumption is that Hand will assume closer duties for the Blue Jays, especially considering how much movement Toronto has had at that spot. Kirby Yates got hurt in the spring and every subsequent reliever used to fill the role, from Julian Merryweather to Jordan Romano, has been less than stellar. Hand will, hopefully solidify the role.

    Either prove you've been vaccinated or get tested weekly. It's up to you. The United States is in the middle of another COVID-19 surge, and there's no mystery as to why. Now that a majority of eligible American adults are vaccinated against the virus, social distancing, mask requirements, and other pandemic safety measures in each state have been steadily reduced. But America has not achieved the level of public vaccination that would provide "herd immunity" to the virus—that is, a level of vaccination high enough that transmission of the virus through communities largely ceases due to a lack of infection targets—and so that return to unmasked "normal" has had dire consequences for Americans who are still unvaccinated. Among the vaccinated, pandemic infections remain low. Among the unvaccinated, including children too young for the vaccine, the new "delta" variant is spreading through unmasked communities like wildfire. There are only two possible solutions to the new surge: Either the vast majority of Americans need to get vaccinated—and quickly—or widespread shutdowns need to again occur to prevent regional hospitals from becoming overwhelmed with new...
    3 reasons the Knicks will likely trade up in the 2021 NBA Draft Alexander Wilson July 25, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit With the NBA draft set to commence on Thursday, July 29, the New York Knicks are arranging all of their last preparation and research before they have to make a few big decisions. Trade rumors have been circulating for the past few months, and while it is possible a blockbuster deal for Damian Lillard or Bradley Beal is on the table, it is more than likely that New York will end up trading their picks for a lottery selection. According to Ian Begley of SNY, the Knicks are actively looking to move up: The Knicks have explored opportunities to move up in Thursday’s Draft. They currently have the No. 19 and No. 21 picks in the first round and the No. 32 and No. 58 picks in the second round. With several impact players projected to go before the Knicks’ first-round pick at 19, moving...
    The greatest singing voices of all time Elon Musk’s Essential Tips for Aspiring Entrepreneurs Ronald Acuña Jr. tore his ACL on Saturday and will miss the rest of an already disappointing season for the Braves. View the original article to see embedded media.The All-Star break is supposed to be a time for players to rest up so they can come back recharged for the second-half stretch run. For the Braves, it could function as a necessary respite away from the field—or may result in Atlanta’s players stewing themselves into sorrow over the rotten end to the team’s first half. Surely the Braves will appreciate the break before the dog days of summer. But given the way the offense responded Sunday in its first game without Ronald Acuña Jr. at the top of the lineup—with a record nine straight strikeouts to open their loss against the Marlins—it’s fair to wonder about both this team’s ceiling and the state of the clubhouse psyche after Atlanta’s trying first half. The Braves carry a losing record for the first time at this stage...
