     Exercising won't help you lose weight on its own, one of the country’s leading experts has sensationally claimed. Professor Tim Spector, a prolific dietary researcher and author, accepted that working out is 'great’ for your overall health, especially your heart. He even insisted that ‘we should all do it’. But in terms of losing weight, Professor Spector argued that exercise was ‘no use on its own’. It goes against advice from health agencies across the planet who state that it is ‘key’ in beating the bulge. Professor Spector acknowledged that while exercise as it is 'great for your health' and 'fantastic for your mood', you should not exercise alone if 'your goal is weight loss' RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next How dieting can help you keep weight off for FIVE YEARS:...

    A mother-of-two has sparked debate after admitting she is 'envious' of people who only have one child. Writing on British parenting forum Mumsnet, the anonymous woman explained she loves her children but she wondered if anyone else regretted having another child after their first. She admitted she looks at people who have just one child and 'thinks they have the best of both worlds' as they are parents but still can 'focus on their careers.' Views were mixed as some people said they ‘feel the same’ while others say they wished for more kids.

    Tucker Carlson has used his eponymous Fox News show to slam a group of liberal TV reporters whom he claims have been using their reports to 'blame right-wing media outlets' for 'radicalizing' the Colorado Springs gay bar shooter. 'This is a man who was radicalized by this show and by the Twitter account Libs of TikTok to hate transgendered people and that's why this man walked into a bar, a gay bar, with a gun, and started murdering people,' Carlson said, tongue firmly in cheek during Wednesday night's monologue. He was able to gently mock because earlier in the day a requested emerged from the lawyers of 22-year-old Anderson Lee Aldrich to be referred to using they/them pronouns, because they are said to be non-binary. CNN delivered the news to stunned silence before proceeding to report on the shootings and Aldrich's alleged involvement using male pronouns.  Tucker Carlson used his monologue in his show to call out liberal TV reporters by name who had accused him and Fox News of stirring up anti LGBTQ sentiment Carlson then illustrated how left-leaning...
    People who suffer migraines have physical changes in their brains, a study has found for the first time. MRI scans show they have enlarged fluid-filled spaces surrounding blood vessels in central regions of the brain. Researchers believe people who suffer chronic migraines may have problems with the part of the brain responsible for clearing waste. Migraines are severe headaches leaving patients with throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation in their heads and nausea, weakness and light sensitivity. They can take days to clear, leaving patients spending days off work and costing the US economy about $11billion a year estimates suggest. About 37million people in the US are estimated to suffer from migraines every year, with women up to three times more likely to be affected. It comes after a separate study found long Covid sufferers also suffer physical changes to their brain, in regions responsible for tiredness and cognition. Pictured above is the brain of a patient who suffers from migraines (left) and does not (right). Migraine sufferers have more enlarged perivascular spaces (shown by arrows) within the semiovale region.  Pictured...
    It was a 15-year army veteran and family man who disarmed the 22-year-old gunman who allegedly killed five people inside a Colorado Springs LGBTQ club, potentially saving dozens of lives. Richard Fierro, who spent four combat deployments across Iraq and Afghanistan, told The New York Times he was at the Club Q drag show Saturday with his wife, daughter, and some friends when bullets went flying. “Everyone else was running away and he ran toward him,” said Matthew Haynes, one of the club’s owners. Fierro, who rose to the rank of major and earned numerous military awards including the Combat Action Badge and two Bronze Star Medals during his service, said he had only ever been shot at from afar before—but this time, he could smell the cordite. “I had my whole Colorado Springs family in there. I had to do something: He was not going to kill my family,” Fierro told The Washington Post. Then, he says, he went into “combat mode,” stripping suspected gunman Anderson Aldrich of his rifle and beating him bloody with it. “I...
    A nursing student has been slammed for marrying a male radio DJ 40 years older than her, with trolls saying the relationship makes them 'uncomfortable' and calling the 23-year-old a 'gold digger'. The Brazilian woman, Maria Eduardo Dias, began her relationship with the father of her child when she was just 16 years old and he was 57. The couple, from Campina Grane, now have a child together, after 63-year-old radio DJ Nixon Motta had his vasectomy removed to become father to Maria Alice in 2021. A young nursing student has been slammed for marrying a male radio DJ 40 years older than her, with trolls calling the 23-year-old a 'gold digger' (the couple pictured) Ms Dias said she 'cannot understand' the 'disrespect' her 'beautiful and blessed' family received after she uploaded a TikTok announcing her marriage to the DJ. 'I even imagined it would go viral, but in a positive way.

    Before Richie Sexson began his 12-year MLB career, becoming an All-Star who hit over 300 career home runs, he was a minor leaguer fighting his way up the baseball food chain. It’s those experiences as a young player that Sexson plans to utilize as he begins his professional managing career in the Frontier League with the Windy City ThunderBolts. “I played in the minors for four or five years,” Sexson said. “I sat in Triple-A for a couple years, stayed motivated and understood the ultimate goal. I think I can teach that to these guys. “It’s obviously a super stressful time and you have to put yourself back in that situation and realize they’re not making a ton of money and they have one goal, and that’s to get to the big leagues. I hope I can help them do that.” Sexson was recently named the 19th manager in history for the T-Bolts. He replaces Brian Smith, whose teams went 118-169 over three seasons, including 33-62 in 2022, the franchise’s worst record since 2001. “It’s exciting to get somebody with...
    Mike Pence has opened up about the storming of the Capitol, revealing Donald Trump said it was a 'terrible' way to end his presidency. The former vice president held a conversation less than a week after the January 6 riots when he certified the election results declaring Joe Biden the winner, much to Trump's chagrin. Enraged MAGA supporters were chanting 'Hang Mike Pence' and a gallows was built outside the Capitol over his refusal to fully back Trump's claims of widespread election fraud and block the certification process. In an excerpt from Pence's upcoming book, he recalled the terrifying scenes as he was ushered to safety during the insurrection. He then met with the president on January 11, nine days before Biden's inauguration, and the president appeared wistful about what might have been, he claims. Pence's excerpt, seen by the Washington Post, says: 'I met with the president on Jan. 11. He looked tired, and his voice seemed fainter than usual. 'How are you?' he began. 'How are Karen and Charlotte?'  Mike Pence has opened up about the storming of...
    John Alite isn't looking for sympathy and he isn't looking for acclaim. He is looking for a fight. And, after a life during which he once embraced extreme violence as an enforcer for the mob, this time it is horribly personal. At 8.34am on August 18, doctors switched off the life support that had been sustaining Alite's daughter, Chelsea, since her admission to hospital three days earlier. Chelsea Alite was 30 years old, mother to a five-year-old son, Brayden, and she died when she unwittingly took a Percocet that had been laced with fentanyl. She was the third of Alite's four children and his only daughter. In the weeks since her death Alite has had a crash course in what he calls the fentanyl 'war' being waged in this country, claiming the lives of Americans in record numbers.  Now, in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, he is speaking for the first time about his loss and the mission he has found in it. John Alite's daughter Chelsea, 30, died on August 18 after unwittingly taking a Percocet that had been...

    Holidaymakers heading for the US will be feeling the pinch this summer after the value of the pound plunged. Sterling dropped below $1.20 this month, 14 per cent lower than a year ago and – barring the pandemic when it slumped even further – its lowest level since 1985. The painful exchange rate comes just as many are desperate to take a long break for the first time since lockdown restrictions were lifted, despite looming strikes and ongoing airport chaos. It means everyday items, meals out and tourist attractions will be much more expensive. The most basic ten-day pass for two adults and two children to Disney World Florida will be almost £200 more expensive this summer. The tickets cost the equivalent of £1,859 in dollars today compared with £1,650 at last year’s rate. A four-night stay for two at a romantic New York City hotel will be about £100 more expensive. Holidaymakers heading for the US will be feeling the pinch this summer after the value of the pound plunged meaning costs will soar for visiting Brits. Pictured: Disney...

    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was pressed to explain why the White House won’t call out by name the people promoting racist theories of the sort that inspired the Buffalo mass shooter. Fox News host Tucker Carlson was named at Monday’s press briefing, and there are a host of other Republican personalities, elected officials, and candidates who have publicly espoused versions of “replacement theory” — the racist ideology cited by the Buffalo mass shooting suspect — an 18 year-old white man named Payton Gendron. When asked about Carlson specifically — and others more broadly —  Jean-Pierre offered several lengthy responses that apparently did not put the question to rest. Jean-Pierre briefed reporters aboard Air Force One en route to Buffalo on Tuesday, and was once again pressed to explain. Jean-Pierre replied that “the people who spread this filth know who they are, and they should be ashamed of themselves”: Q And also, yesterday, you were asked a couple of times about whether or not certain commentators and media, whether or not certain members of the Republican Party as well should share some blame in...
    Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer wrote to Rupert Murdoch and other Fox News executives on Tuesday, demanding they denounce conspiracy theories like the 'Great Replacement Theory' and end any spread of white supremacist ideology on their network. 'I urge you to take into consideration the very real impacts of the dangerous rhetoric being broadcast on your network on a nightly basis,' Schumer wrote in the letter, where he called out Fox News' Tucker Carlson by name. 'For years, these types of beliefs have existed at the fringes of American life,' Schumer noted. 'However, this pernicious theory, which has no basis in fact, has been injected into the mainstream thanks in large part to a dangerous level of amplification by your network and its anchors.'  'I implore you to immediately cease all dissemination of false white nationalist, far-right conspiracy theories on your network,' he wrote.  Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer demanded Rupert Murdoch and other Fox News executives denounce conspiracy theories like the 'Great Replacement Theory' Schumer sent his letter to Rupert Murdoch and other Fox News executives Payton Gendron,...

    Here’s something you might find surprising. Despite two years of pandemic-related anxieties, California is now so awash in money that politicians in Sacramento are debating how to spend tens of billions of surplus dollars. It’s an unlikely season of plenty, and it leaves us with no excuse for ignoring the dirty secrets that help fill California’s coffers in leaner times — a crazy array of fines, fees and penalties levied on traffic violations, foster care and government benefits — that squeeze money from those least able to afford it. These are “high-pain, low-gain” ways of raising money. They glean a few extra dollars for community chests but at tremendous future cost. We don’t save taxpayer dollars by crushing families’ finances. We won’t move toward a more equitable world with predatory practices that disproportionately hit Black and brown Californians. Next month Gov. Gavin Newsom has an opportunity to rein in the worst of these schemes when he puts out his updated budget, known as the May revise. The governor and legislators have proposals in hand for the following reforms,...
    An American tourist poses for a holiday snap in Iraq, in front of the blue-brick Ishtar Gate that was rebuilt at the ancient site of Babylon under dictator Saddam Hussein. Most foreigners here since Saddam's ouster in a 2003 US-led invasion have worn army fatigues and carried guns – but more recently there has been a trickle of camera-toting travel pioneers. 'Iraq was in my top three countries,' said the visitor to Babylon, 50-year-old Californian Ileana Ovalle, who was excited to see the millennia-old Mesopotamian site. Iraq has seen a mini-boom in tourism after years of conflict. In this picture, tourists visit the blue-brick Ishtar Gate that was rebuilt at the ancient site of Babylon under dictator Saddam Hussein Most Western governments still issue travel warnings for all or parts of Iraq, pointing to risks from kidnappings to jihadist bombings and unexploded ordnance from multiple wars.

    mediaphotos | E+ | Getty Images Tax filing season is underway. Most Americans should be able to file their 2021 tax returns to the IRS for free. About 100 million Americans, or roughly 70% of people filing taxes in the U.S., are eligible to submit their tax returns to the IRS at no cost, according to the agency. Even more Americans may be able to submit their 2021 tax returns at little or no cost through other tax-preparation programs. There are also other underused services that can help people this tax season, said Tania Brown, a certified financial planner based in Atlanta and financial coach at SaverLife, a nonprofit focused on financial security.

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki pushed back when Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich asked if it would also be fair to call this “a pandemic of the vaccinated” since breakthrough infections are occurring. Psaki held a briefing with reporters on Wednesday, during which Heinrich asked several questions related to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Several of Heinrich’s questions had to do with whether factors other than science were influencing recent changes to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which Psaki flatly denied. But Heinrich also challenged Psaki on the administration, and President Joe Biden in particular, messaging that stresses the risk to the unvaccinated. “The president yesterday said this continues to be a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” Heinrich said, referencing the president’s speech Tuesday on the state of the pandemic amid an Omicron-fueled surge in cases. “Isn’t it also fair to say that it’s still also a pandemic of vaccinated, given the breakthrough cases that we’ve been seeing?” Heinrich asked. “Well, Jackie, we also know that you are seven time… 17 times more likely to die of Covid...
    The family of the youngest of 10 people who died at the Astroworld festival earlier this month, nine-year-old Ezra Blount, has rejected an offer Travis Scott made to pay for the boy's funeral. 'Your client’s offer is declined,' the family's attorney Bob Hilliard told Scott's lawyer Daniel Petrocelli in a letter obtained by Rolling Stone. 'I have no doubt Mr. Scott feels remorse. His journey ahead will be painful. 'He must face and hopefully see that he bears some of the responsibility for this tragedy.'

    Every Thanksgiving, I write a reminder for the people at home or with their families to take a moment to think about people who have to work on the holiday. This year, the pandemic has altered that landscape a little bit, in ways good and bad.  A number of retail chains that in recent years just couldn’t wait until Black Friday, and had opened on Thanksgiving, will be closed on Thursday this year. They didn’t necessarily do it out of the goodness of their hearts—many of those companies are struggling to find workers and burning out the ones they have probably won’t help them with staffing. Target even made clear that it was staying closed on Thanksgiving because customers liked it that way, not because it was the right thing to do for workers. Still, amid labor shortages, the holiday shopping season will be intense enough for the people working in those stores.  A rousing boo to any store that is closed on Thanksgiving but doesn’t have holiday pay. And too many workers will still be called into jobs that really don’t need...
    Hosts of The View are grateful for a president this Thanksgiving, and — surprise — it's not former President Donald Trump . Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines praised President Joe Biden on Wednesday. They listed each accomplishment they were grateful for, from infrastructure to coronavirus relief. "I don't want to bore people with the list, but the list is long," Behar said. THE VIEW CO-HOST BLAMES HARRIS'S LOW APPROVAL ON PEOPLE WANTING TO 'COME DOWN ON THE WOMAN' She mentioned his signing of the infrastructure bill, a coronavirus relief plan, the "little bit messy" ending of the War in Afghanistan, canceling student loan debt for people with disabilities, returning the United States to the Paris climate accord, and lower unemployment rates.

    "My point about all of this is: I am not anti-vax. What I really want is for people to make these decisions for themselves," Bila added. As she endorsed personal choice, audio picked up one of the show's co-hosts loudly groaning dismissively in the background. "However, I do oppose mandates," Bila continued. "I oppose them on the fact that — let's look at the science. This is a vaccine created to prevent severity of disease and to prevent hospitalization ... but the vaccine does not prevent you from getting COVID and does not prevent you from transmitting COVID."

    Real Time host Bill Maher slammed the 'level of hate' Americans have for each other, saying he believes in a 'colorblind' society and criticized the idea of secession. Maher pulled a quote from Pennsylvania Republican representative Scott Perry who told people to 'go fight' Democrats, who he claimed are the 'opposite of everything you believe in.' He was referring to the Build Back Better infrastructure bill in Congress and the political divide.   'I read this not because it's remarkable, but it's typical,' the liberal Real Time host said regarding Perry's quote on Friday's show. 'This is the rhetoric - we never used to do this in America. Yes, the parties were at each other's throats, but they never said they're the opposition of everything you love and believe in.'  Maher, 65, suggested the long-term strategy was to stop the hate. 'We have to stop this level of hate,' he said, and questioned: 'Why do they [Republicans] hate us [Democrats]?'   Second panelist and Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, 61, blamed former President Donald Trump for creating a divide that taught that the 'reason why...
    WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. —  In the lonely monotony of High Desert State Prison, there were no visitors and little mail for Renwick Drake Jr., so the letter was a curiosity when it arrived in the summer of 2020. It told Drake about a new law, meant to undo too-harsh sentences. Maybe, it said, the district attorney would take another look at his case after 11 years of incarceration. But maybes are dangerous in prison, dealers of counterfeit hope. The letter felt like another false flag from the system that had put Drake behind bars at age 15, when he was a skinny skater who thought he knew everything until, too late, he realized he knew nothing. “Little Ren” to the family he left behind, he’d been inmate No. AL9471 ever since. A letter wasn’t going to get him out, he thought, and neither was the D.A. who put him here. There was only patience and himself. Drake put the letter aside and went back to serving his time. He had 12 years to go. But the maybe had ahold of...
    Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson weighed in on the flurry of Southwest Airlines cancellations over the past several days during his show on Monday. The “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host celebrated the show of “nonviolent civil disobedience” and blasted President Joe Biden for his harsh words about those opting not to get the vaccination. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Well, speaking of work, Joe Biden showed up at a construction site in Illinois last Thursday to explain what a terrific job he’s been doing. Biden’s poll numbers, you may have noticed, have declined recently, not just by a little bit, but by such a dramatic margin that some prominent Democrats are openly worried about it. The midterms are in a year. So the point of last week’s appearance outside Chicago was to remind all of us in the country that our perceptions of Biden’s performance are silly and baseless. Actually, Joe Biden is a great President. He is totally aware of what’s happening. He is completely on top of things. He knows exactly what he’s doing and he’s got your well-being at...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Two of the Minneapolis police officers recorded on recently-released body camera video making disparaging comments about protesters in the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder are no longer on the force. The Minneapolis Police Department confirmed to WCCO-TV that Lt. Johnny Mercil left the department on May 3 and Cmdr. Bruce Folks left on July 31. In the body camera footage, which was released earlier this week, Mercil is heard saying that he thought a group of protesters was white because “there’s not looting and fires,” The Star Tribune reported. Folkens made comments about “hunting people” after curfew during the nights of unrest. RELATED: Body Cam Footage Of Minneapolis Officers During Unrest Released After Trial: ‘We’re Hunting Activists!’ Mercil also testified in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer convicted of murdering George Floyd on May 25, 2020.

    Charles Chamberlain's letter to the editor of the Tampa Bay Times may at first appear to praise Florida's new surgeon general for his remarks on the 'great protection' that natural immunity provides from been infected by COVID-19. But upon closer inspection, Chamberlain's sarcasm and contempt for Dr. Joseph Ladapo, the Sunshine State's new surgeon general as of September 21, who made waves himself this week after offering the observation that those that have been infected with the coronavirus will develop an immunity to the infection. 'I am aware that he is correct because of a recent experience with a member of my family,' Chamberlain writes of the remark Dr. Ladapo made last week.  'He had a severe infection from COVID-19. He is past that now and is completely immune -- not only for COVID-19 but flu and other respiratory infections as well.' 'Of course, we are burying this family member next week.'  Pictured: Charles Chamberlain's letter to the editor, which went viral for its sarcastic nature and tone Dr. Joseph Ladapo, pictured, Florida's new surgeon general, made waves after saying that those that have been...
    More children have have been shot in Chicago this year than the number of kids who have died of COVID-19 during the pandemic.  A total of 2014 children, under the age of 17, have died from the virus while a total of 261 have been shot dead in the liberal city this year alone, accordding to  data from police and the Center for Disease Control. Of those who were shot in the windy city, 41 were killed.   Although COVID-19 cases among children spiked over the summer, the death rates in the demographic remain low, accounting for just 0-0.27 percent of pandemic fatalities nationwide.  According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, 25 people under the age of 18 died of the coronavirus since the onset of the pandemic in March of last year, the agency told Fox News.  That equals out to six minor deaths in every 100,000 people under 18 in the state. Only seven states of the entire 52 reported no deaths among children, the CDC and American Academy of Pediatrics report.  In Chicago, more children have been shot to...
    Airports were crowded with passengers across the country over Labor Day weekend with over seven million people passing through the TSA checkpoint, doubling last year's numbers. The TSA reported Labor Day weekend numbers with 1.8 million on September 2, 2.1 million on September 3, 1.5 million on September 4 and 1.6 million on September 5 - a total of seven million people, and close to the 7.8 million who traveled over Labor Day weekend in 2019.   In 2020, the Labor Day weekend traveler numbers were 968,373 on September 3, 664,640 on September 4, 689,630 on both September 5 and 935,310 on September 6 - a total of 3.2 million people   This year's numbers weren't quite as high as Labor Day 2019, which saw 1.8 million fly on August 29, 2.2 million on August 30, 2 million on August 31 and 1.8 million on September 1 - a total of 7.8 million passengers.   The recent increase in air travel came after a brief slow period in August which saw passenger numbers briefly drop amid concerns over the COVID Delta variant.    ...
    She was working as a history teacher in a private school in a wealthy neighborhood in California. It was a job he liked and in which he planned to stay. But the pandemic arrived and things changed. She was forced to go back to work in person when COVID-19 infections continued to increase. She was concerned about the risk to her health and her increased workload from having to take classes online and in person at the same time. Now, when more than a year has passed since the start of the pandemic, Melissa Villareal just quit to your job and he’s working on something else entirely: industrial design. It was a very difficult decision, she says, because “one feels guilty as a teacher.” “You don’t want to leave the students.” Still, “it became so clear that they did not care about my health, the health of the children, or the mental well-being of anyone.

    President Joe Biden urged Democrats and Republicans to unite on the House select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riot during a town hall event Wednesday night in Cincinnati, Ohio.  'I don't care if you think I'm Satan reincarnated,' Biden said during the event televised on CNN. 'The fact is you can't look at that television and say nothing happened on the 6th. You can't listen to people who say this was a peaceful march.'  His comments came after Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two Republicans selected by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to serve on the committee because of their ties to former President Donald Trump. In response, McCarthy pulled all five Republican members from the committee, calling the investigation a 'sham.'  Biden addressed the need for Democrats and Republicans to work together and investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riots during a town hall event Wednesday in Cincinnati, Ohio CNN's Don Lemon, right, asked how can the parties unite amid constant clashes and the rise of partisanship During the Jan. 6 riot at the...
    Bill Oxford | E+ | Getty Images Roughly 4 million refunds will be sent this week to people who overpaid taxes on their 2020 unemployment benefits, the IRS announced Tuesday. Due to the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act, which became law in March, up to $10,200 in 2020 unemployment compensation was excluded from taxable income for individuals and married couples with modified adjusted gross income under $150,000 last year. However, many taxpayers had already filed their tax returns before the legislation was approved by Congress and signed into law by President Joe Biden. For taxpayers who overpaid due to the exclusion, the IRS will either refund the overpayment — as it's doing this week — or apply it to other outstanding taxes or other federal or state debts owed.

    Michael Cohen appeared on The Beat with Ari Melber to criticize Matt Gaetz amid allegations of sex trafficking. Cohen lambasted Gaetz, calling his behavior “so brazen and so stupid that it actually boggles the mind.” Cohen argued, “The only reasonable explanation for his behavior is that he felt that he would be protected by Donald Trump and his corrupt Justice Department.”  Commenting on all the scandals in Trumpworld Cohen said, “They’re following Donald Trump’s playbook. As I explained before the House Oversight Committee that I know the playbook and it didn’t work for me and it’s certainly not going to work for you.” He continued, calling Gaetz a “dope” over reports on Venmo transactions, comparing it to linking “his Instagram account to his seeking arrangements account.”  Cohen incredulously asked, “This is the representative that the people of Florida have chosen? I don’t get it.” Cohen also responded to information brought up in the Ethics Committee investigation into Gaetz that alleged he threatened Cohen’s wife in a tweet. Texts were revealed that showed Fox News host Sean Hannity telling Gaetz to reach out to “Michael” with an apology. Cohen ended by...
    New York : The IRS He mailed a “large number” of checks for $ 1,400 in the mail last week, which will start arriving by the end of the week or the next. The agency recognizes that there are people who believed that they would receive the money in their bank accounts, but some with the bank forced to process the payment physically. “Your payment may have been mailed because the bank rejected the deposit. This could happen because the bank information is not valid or because the bank account has been closed “the agency warned. He adds that banking information that the IRS already has on file cannot be changed and strongly urges Americans to avoid calling. “Do not call the IRS, our telephone assistants will not be able to change your bank information either”, he indicated. The IRS will continue to ship weekly, but there is no official schedule. There is a universe of 12 million people, for example, who earn less than $ 12,000 annually., so they do not report taxes, so the agency would send...
    (Photo: DEANDRIA MACKEY / HUFFPOST) 2020 has been one of the worst years in history, and that includes the sexual plane. Thanks to the coronavirus, singles were forced to ask themselves: “Is it worth risking dying for a night of sex?” At the same time, many couples who live together claim that their sex life and libido have dropped and many polyamorous have become less polyamorous. After a year of a pandemic, if you ask anyone about their sex life, they are likely to answer something like “it could be better” or “ask me again when I’m vaccinated.” During the pandemic, experts and authorities have not tired of reminding that the safest sex is sex with yourself. Much of the population took notice and, like heroes without a cape, many went to work to help slow the curve.

    Washington (CNN)Two House Republicans who voted in 2019 to support the Equality Act flipped their votes Thursday and opposed the legislation, which intends to protect people from being discriminated based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Republican Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida and Elise Stefanik of New York were two of eight GOP lawmakers who joined House Democrats to vote for the Equality Act during the last session of Congress, when the legislation was first passed in the chamber. Stefanik's office did not immediately return several messages Friday seeking an explanation as to why she didn't support the Equality Act this session. Diaz-Balart said Friday he supported it in the last Congress because he has "always fought against discrimination in all its forms" and that he had "outlined some severe flaws" with the legislation "that needed to be addressed to obtain bipartisan support." House passes Equality Act aimed at ending discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity"House Democratic Leadership had ample time to make these changes, but sadly, they ignored multiple good faith efforts by my colleagues and instead...
    (CNN)Two overlapping crises have our country in a literal death grip: the Covid-19 pandemic that has killed more than 500,000 people, and the crushing economic downturn.We believe there's something that can help. Building a new public health workforce will provide permanent, quality jobs to bolster neglected health systems; create new career pathways, particularly for women and people of color; and ensure greater health equity in the Black and brown communities hardest hit by the virus.Over the last year, Covid-19 has laid bare the failures of our health system, which invests enormous sums in treating illness and paltry sums in preventing it. With limited staff and funding, state and local authorities are struggling to keep pace with testing, contact tracing, and supporting isolating and quarantining Covid-19 patients. Now, those same strapped governments are also being asked to ramp up complex vaccination campaigns. To mount a public health response of appropriate scale and scope, we need to provide reinforcements.

    Twitter via Senator Ted Cruz Late on Saturday night, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) tweeted three photos of himself helping out fellow Texans while the state continues to be faced with freezing temperatures, widespread power outages, and a water shortage. But the post captioned, “#TexasStrong,” didn’t sit well with many Twitter users, who promptly called him out due to the senator’s family vacation to Cancun, Mexico earlier in the week. #TexasStrong pic.twitter.com/gK4DHtsvLU — Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) February 21, 2021 Some characterized Cruz’s photos as a shameless photo op while others judged his efforts as lacking when compared to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Overall, the reactions were harshly negative. I’m glad someone in Ted Cruz’s Senate office finally instructed him on how to fake compassion, humanity, and creating the illusion that he cares about the people he was elected to serve. https://t.co/6JuuzUzpf2 — Melissa Ryan (@MelissaRyan) February 21, 2021 I guess this is for all the people who joined Twitter today? https://t.co/bFxFwAsVAd — Christian Schneider (@Schneider_CM) February 21, 2021 I’d be curious to know exactly how long @tedcruz...

    Hear voices from beyond. Creepy, right? Clairaudience is the ability of some people to hear sounds or voices that are not perceived by the common ear. A group of scientists from the University of Durham analyzed, interviewing 65 mediums from the National Union of Spiritists, and 143 from the general population. What was the objective of the investigation? Learn about their immersive mental activities. Experts point out that these spiritists have a proclivity for absorption. This is a trait linked to immersion in mental, imaginative or experiential activities in altered states of consciousness. The results of the surveys were published in the journal Mental Health, Religion and Culture. Hear voices from beyond: Clairaudience The basis of spiritism is the idea that souls continue to exist after death. They communicate with living beings through a medium. In the Durham University study, 44.6% of spiritists reported hearing voices on a daily basis. Meanwhile, 33.8% experienced not only listening, but also seeing the deceased person. 79% noted that auditory spiritual communication experiences were part of their daily lives. Another fact,...

              Williamson County Republican Party Chair Cheryl Brown said this week that members of the mainstream media unfairly depicted supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump as people “who stormed the Capitol” and wanted to destroy Washington, D.C. But Brown, who was one of hundreds of Tennesseans who traveled to Washington, D.C. Wednesday, said she came only to plead for a free and fair election. “It was a peaceful protest, and the small group that I went with from Tennessee to D.C. came to hold politicians accountable for a free election. There were people as far as I could see. I was reminded of a verse in the Bible that says ‘I saw a vast crowd too great to count from every nation and tribe and people and language,’” Brown told The Tennessee Star Friday. “There were people there of all ages. It was beautiful. In the way that we were all on one accord and peaceful and taking care of one another. It was like one big family coming together, and we respected each...
