    MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski said Wednesday on ABC’s “The View” that President Donald Trump should be investigated after he leaves office. Co-host Sunny Hostin said, “Mika, you know, President-elect Biden is already facing calls from some in the Democratic Party to investigate and prosecute President Trump. One of the senior prosecutors in the Mueller investigation just also came forward and said that the next attorney general should hold Trump accountable for any criminal behavior in office despite how divisive that could be for the country. What’s the best move for the sake of the country, in your opinion?” Brzezinski said, “Well, Joe and I disagree. I want to say for the record — we disagree on this. I think it’s enough with letting things go by. How much are we going to just let just pass by from this presidency, which has come so close to destroying our democracy, more than any other president? And I do think that there needs to be a degree of investigations, and also a postmortem on what happened, and our institutions, where they softened,...
    If you’re already counting down the days till next year this Thanksgiving week, eager to be out with the old and in with the new, especially in this pandemic-torn year, I’d like to recommend that we still pause to count our blessings in 2020 – and even name them one by one. Why? Gratitude provides perspective and level sets today’s troubles, trials and tribulations.  I presume everyone could assemble their own individual list, but here are 20 things that I think many of us can be appreciative of as we approach Thursday’s celebration of Thanksgiving. NEWT GINGRICH: THANKSGIVING REMINDER – AMID HARDSHIPS, AMERICANS MUST REMAIN GRATEFUL 1. Doctors, nurses and medical professionals: Even at great risk to their own health, they have cared for millions of infected patients this year. 2. First responders: Because they’re willing to be available at all hours, you and I can sleep soundly each night. Especially in the heated summer of 2020, they regularly encountered the very worst of situations yet bravely and courageously waded into almost impossible circumstances. Video3. Farmers, Truckers and Grocery Workers: As you gather around...
    Coronavirus infection tallies are climbing relentlessly right now, but case counts aren’t the only measurement going the wrong direction. A growing number of people are finding it tough to afford enough food, pay for typical household goods and stay current on their rent and mortgage compared to five weeks prior, according to running statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau. Meanwhile, time is running out on government-enacted financial relief for struggling households and payment pauses on debts such as student loan balances. Capitol Hill talks for another stimulus bill are stalling, just like the transition between President Donald Trump and President-Elect Joe Biden. In other words, the surge in coronavirus cases couldn’t have come at a worse time for Americans’ financial well-being, on top of the implications for their physical health. “ ‘Things are getting much worse, but policymakers aren’t in action mode and they barely make time to talk to one another now.’ ” — Andrew Stettner, a senior fellow at the liberal-leaning Century Foundation. “Things are getting much worse, but policymakers aren’t in...
    Sacha Baron Cohen performed the "Wuhan Flu" song at a a right-wing March For Our Rights rally. Amazon Studios Erran Baron Cohen, the older brother of Sacha, told The Hollywood Reporter that he'd love to perform the "Wuhan Flu" song at the Oscars if it's nominated for best original song. Erran Baron Cohen is a music composer, and created the soundtrack for "Borat 2" including the famous "Wuhan Flu" song that led to Sacha being chased out of a right wing rally. Baron Cohen said: "I think that would be one of the best things that would ever happen at the Oscars. It would make it the most interesting Oscars ceremony ever." He said that the racist lyrics in the song may have to be changed, however, and that a special version could be performed specifically for the Academy Awards.

    ONCE we've passed our driving test, most of us will go years without having to think about how our health could affect us on the road. Yet, there are several common occurrences which officials say they need to know about before you get behind the wheel - or risk a fine. 1Did you know you had to declare some of these medical conditions to the DVLA?Credit: Getty - Contributor If you've had a caesarean section or a hysterectomy, you might have to tell the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). Conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy, low blood sugar, cancer, Parkinson’s disease and Tourette’s syndrome may also need to be flagged up. Mental health problems like anxiety, depression, dementia, PTSD orparanoia could also be notifiable. And you might need to stop driving for a period of time after having surgery, suffering a heart attack, having kidney dialysis or a stroke. Keeping quiet could result in a £1,000 fine or a prosecution if you end up in an accident and your health turns out to be a factor. Some conditions require...
    James Bond may have been the ultimate British adventurer-rogue, but when I think of great Sean Connery portrayals, my mind goes right to Danny Dravot, aka “The Man Who Would be King.” Connery and Michael Caine had the time of their lives playing two scrappy British sergeants out to retrace the steps of Alexander the Great and conquer Afghanistan in the exhilarating 1975 John Huston film based on Rudyard Kipling’s novel. At one point Danny and Caine’s Peachy Carnahan are trapped on a mountain with no possible means of escape. And what do they do? They have a laugh about all the good times they’ve known. A big, roaring, boisterous laugh. Such a laugh that the two men touch off an avalanche which creates a bridge of snow over a chasm that allows them to escape. That was Connery and Caine throughout their careers — two working-class blokes bluffing themselves to one great big merry laugh of a life. As great as the scene is, it is surpassed by the (spoiler alert) climactic moment when Danny’s luck runs out. Danny,...

    Dr. Fauci has warned that the country or even the world won't return to 'normality' until 2022 because that's how long it will take for enough people to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Fauci, the Director of the CDC, was giving a talk over Zoom to The University of Melbourne in Australia.  He said: 'If we get a vaccination campaign, and by the second or third quarter of 2021 we have vaccinated a substantial proportion of the people, I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year, before we start having some semblances of normality.'  He said that he was 'very certain' there would be a vaccine in the next few months but it would take longer to roll out. Dr. Fauci warned on Wednesday that it wouldn't be until 2022 that there would be 'semblances of normality' again. He was speaking on a virtual panel during a talk for The University of Melbourne  Fauci also criticized Americans who had turned wearing a mask into a 'political statement' and said if...

    An impartial third party will enter Phil Collins’ Miami home to inventory items belonging to him and his ex-wife, Orianne Cevey, a judge ruled Tuesday. Collins, 69, is suing Cevey, 46, for allegedly refusing to move out of his waterfront estate after secretly marrying a man named Thomas Bates. Collins, who has temporarily relocated to his house in Switzerland, is seeking a temporary restraining order against the couple, who married in Las Vegas in August. He’s also looking to protect his personal belongings that remain inside the Miami house. During the Zoom hearing, attorneys for Collins expressed concern over his collection of artifacts from the Battle at the Alamo, his music collection, his piano, his clothes and family photos. “His clothes, his photos, all of his personal effects are there,” Collins’ attorney stated. “He didn’t move out. He went away.” Miami-Dade County Court Judge Stephanie Silver recommended an independent party enter the house and inventory everything and said both Collins and Cevey could have representatives present to help decide what belongs to whom. Judge Silver still has to sign...
    Getty Gardner Minshew fires a pass. The Detroit Lions are getting set to get back to work following a week off to rest and reset, and now, the team is faced with the challenge of coming back and going on the road to kick Week 6 off. When the Lions get back to work this week, there will be plenty of issues waiting for them to iron out in order to get things back on the winning track. What are the most important storylines this week? Here’s a look. Do Lions Have a Bye Week Hangover? Detroit likely used the bye week to rest up and iron out whatever lingering injury concerns there may have been from the first part of the season. That was the good news from their early bye. The bad news? Detroit now has to get back on the field and shake off the rust in a major way. Sometimes, it’s not easy to go on the road and win following an elongated break.

    Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors had a rough year. Curry was hurt as the Warriors tanked to the bottom of the Western Conference. They were rewarded with the second overall pick in the next draft for their troubles. Steph spoke to Bleacher Report about the challenges of the upcoming season. Especially, after what happened to the team this season. Curry said, “We just need talent. At the end of the day, that’s what you’re always trying to get. I think we could use some size, but for the most part, it’s just trying to fill out the roster and get us as much depth as possible. I like the position that we’re in with the assets that we got and the guys coming back off of injury. Think we’ll get it right, our front office has gotten it right over and over. And I expect nothing different coming back from this tough year we had.” Right now, in LeBron Era, Steph Curry has the same number of champions as James and it didn’t even take him 16 years...
    Julie Appleby October 7, 2020 11:09AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Kaiser Health News. President Donald Trump makes no secret he would like a COVID-19 vaccine to be available before the election. But it's doubtful that will happen and, even after a vaccine wins FDA approval, there would be a long wait before it's time to declare victory over the virus. Dozens of vaccine candidates are in various testing stages around the world, with 11 in the last stage of preapproval clinical trials — including four in the U.S. One or more may prove safe and effective and enter the market in the coming months. What then? : Here are five things to consider in making vaccine dreams come true. 1. A vaccine is vital in fighting the virus, but it won't be a quick pass back to our old lives. Vaccines have helped rid the world of scourges like smallpox, but the process takes time and there are no guarantees. Until clinical trials have been completed on this first round of vaccine candidates, no one knows how...
    (CBS Local)– Heather Land never expected to become a comedian and she now travels the country as a stand-up performer and is the author of two humor books. Her latest called “A Perfect 10: The Truth About Things I’m Not and Never Will Be” from Howard Books, which is owned by Simon & Schuster, is all about Land’s life growing up in the South and why it is important to laugh at life’s most ridiculous moments. Photo Credit: Howard Books “This is a real light-hearted comedy book and obviously a humor book with stand alone essay chapters just about a lot of nonsense and growing up in the South,” said Land, in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “I pretty much just translated this Southern drawl onto paper. It was light and easy and a lot of fun.” Land believes one of the keys to her success has been not taking herself too seriously. The author’s career in comedy started accidentally. The stand-up has made a name for herself with her “I Ain’t Doin It” videos, but the viral videos...
    Amanda Marcotte October 1, 2020 5:00PM (UTC) During Tuesday night's debate, Donald Trump, who has gone pure fascist, once again escalated his efforts to scare people out of voting. He encouraged his followers to engage in voter intimidation under the guise of "poll watching," and told armed hate groups to "stand by." Trump also floated a number of baseless conspiracy theories about "voter fraud" that are clearly designed to discourage voting and rationalize legal efforts to stop votes from being counted.   Meanwhile, Trump's postmaster general, Louis DeJoy, is still slowing down the mail in what looks like a bid to make sure that many mail-in ballots miss election deadlines.  : It's also clear that Trump, with the assistance of his principal stooge, Attorney General Bill Barr, plans to challenge vote-counting after Election Day, knowing full well that it may take a week or more to count all the mail-in ballots.  Trump can't win a free and fair election, and he knows it. So he's doing everything in his power to keep Americans from having one. As the New York Times reported on Thursday morning,...

    With the United States barreling toward flu season, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been the leading voice of health experts during the COVID-19 outbreak, is cautioning that the end of the pandemic may not be near. During a panel discussion with doctors from the Harvard Medical School, Fauci said that Americans are going to “need to hunker down and get through the fall and winter, because it’s not going to be easy” if they hope to get the virus under control. The number of new daily COVID-19 cases has been slowly declining, but there have still been nearly 200,000 virus-related deaths and more than 6 million confirmed infections. His latest comments come after journalist Bob Woodward released audio tapes of President Donald Trump admitting that he intentionally downplayed the pandemic when it first started spreading in early March stating that he “didn’t want to create a panic.” “It’s really quite frankly depressing to see that because you know what's ahead,” he said. “We’ve been through this before (with the HIV epidemic) … don’t ever, ever underestimate the potential of...
    Wednesday on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) said the law and order component of the November election was an important issue and questioned Democrats’ willingness to criticize protesters causing damage to private and public property. “[T]his law and order conversation the president has had is a real issue,” Lankford said. “It is really about safety and security. Right now, there are a lot of our Democratic candidates all over the country that are saying, well, those — the individuals that are smashing windows and that are burning buildings, they really need to be heard. Well, they do need to be heard, but they need to be heard in a peaceful way, not to just smash windows and destroy things, and then to say later, we should work to understand.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor
    Things could be shaking behind scenes for Yankees as Brian Cashman travels to Buffalo to check in By: John Zarnowski September 8, 2020 ShareShareTweetThe one thing that couldn’t happen during this shortened season was to fall into a void of a long losing streak. The New York Yankees have figured out a way to do more than that. After starting the season with a strong 16-6 record, the Yankees have lost their last 12 out of 17 and are now 21-21. After dropping the first two games of a three-game set to the Toronto Blue Jays, the Yankees have put themselves at real danger of falling out of playoff contention if they continue the way they are playing. They’re currently sitting in third place of the AL East, three games behind the Jays, and just one game up on the Baltimore Orioles. You know the club has hit a rough patch when fans have to check the score of the Orioles games each night. General manager Brian Cashman made a rare...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Surly Beer Hall in Minneapolis is closing indefinitely in November — the latest place to departure from the Twin Cities food and beer scene. It comes days after workers shared their intent to form a union. Some lawmakers call this “union busting,” an illegal retaliation against workers. But Surly says the decision was made before that move. It’s a move that Liz Rammer with Hospitality Minnesota calls “heart wrenching.” “This is a business that, you know, was truly groundbreaking, broke many barriers for our state,” Rammer said. She said Surly helped changed the law, allowing breweries to serve their beer on site, paving the way for dozens more to open. In a statement, Surly said it tried to keep the doors open and people employed, but there wasn’t a way forward with beer hall revenue down 82%. And there was an anticipated loss of at least $750,000 this winter. “It’s really a tipping point for us, and it should be a real jarring wake-up call about what’s ahead for us,” Rammer said. “This is probably...
    Portland Trail Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony isn’t performed nonetheless. The 36-year-outdated Anthony, who experienced used a lot more than a calendar year out of the NBA — following bitter endings in Oklahoma Town and Houston — prior to signing with the Trail Blazers previous season, expects to return to the league next period. “In my head, I will be ideal again in the fray of issues when upcoming period comes,” Anthony explained Saturday after the Trail Blazers fell to the Los Angeles Lakers in a time-ending, 131-122 Match 5 loss. The Lakers received the series four game titles to just one. And, a lot more than just about anything, Anthony, who averaged 15.4 details, 6.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists through the typical time, said he’d like it to be with Portland. “I pray that it can be Portland, I consider I observed a home in Portland,” Anthony reported just after scoring 27 details on 9-of-17 shooting in 40 minutes Saturday. He afterwards extra, “I assume you [media members] noticed it, why this is a excellent match for me. Each...
    AJ Watt | Getty Images In early March, U.S. health officials had a stark warning for older Americans: You are more at risk for complications if you contract Covid-19, so avoid leaving your home. For Medicare's 62.5 million beneficiaries — the majority of whom are 65 or older and more likely to use medical services — this was more than an inconvenience or new threat. It meant needing to see a doctor could pose a dangerous choice. Enter telehealth. As communities worked to stem the spread of the coronavirus through temporary business shutdowns and stay-at-home orders, lawmakers and regulators loosened policies to make remote health care through Medicare more broadly available during the public emergency. Whether via video chat, a telephone call or other remote technology, telemedicine usage among Medicare beneficiaries spiked from pre-pandemic levels: At least 10 million Medicare beneficiaries have used telehealth since early March, according to a spokesperson for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Before then, there were roughly 13,000 appointments weekly.  More from Personal Finance:'Super savers' make these sacrifices to help reach goalsParents turn...
    Every game matters more than ever. Every at-bat is amplified. Luis Rojas couldn’t afford to be shy in his first game as Mets manager. After triggering anger, fear and confusion among countless Mets fans by batting 37-year-old Robinson Cano third in recent exhibition games and scrimmages, Rojas had the eight-time All-Star hit sixth in Friday’s season-opening 1-0 win over the Braves at Citi Field. Cano, a two-time Gold Glove winner at second base, was also pulled in the eighth inning in favor of defensive replacement Andres Gimenez, who was making his major league debut. In his first year with the Mets, Cano had a career-worst .256 batting average and a .736 OPS, the second-worst mark of his first 15 seasons. Still, Cano hit third in 58 of 107 games last season, while hitting lower than fifth in the lineup on just eight occasions. So, when Rojas’ first-ever lineup card was displayed, an empty stadium couldn’t mask the celebration among Mets fans. Robinson CanoN.Y.

    All life on Earth is made up of DNA molecules and they have a natural 'right-handed' bias - now scientists believe this is down to cosmic rays blasting the young Earth.  Before bacteria evolved on Earth, self-replicating molecules were turning from matter to life - half had a right-handed bias and half a left-bias. They were under a constant shower of energetic particles from space called cosmic rays, and particles that reached Earth from this radiation had a right-bias. Stanford researchers claim these cosmic rays caused small adaptations in the successful replicating molecules, allowing the right-handed matter to win out.   This dominance is demonstrated in the way the double helix of a DNA strand presents itself - if you could climb it you'd find yourself always turning right.  Before bacteria evolved on Earth, self-replicating molecules were turning from matter to life - under a shower of energetic particles from space - called cosmic rays.

    London (CNN Business)Two pieces of news have put the disconnect between markets and the real economy into stark relief.What's happening: On Monday, the National Bureau of Economic Research formally declared that the US recession began in February. It's the fastest that NBER has designated a recession since the group began announcements in 1979.But stocks still rallied, with the S&P 500 and Dow finishing the session 1.2% and 1.7% higher, respectively. The S&P 500 has now erased its losses for the year and is back in positive territory. The stock market is notoriously forward-looking, and many believe this will be the shortest recession on record given that activity is already picking back up.But plenty of market watchers are still concerned that the recent euphoria has been overblown, pushing valuations too high. After all, the outlook is very different now than it was in January.
