    President Joe Biden was accused of hypocrisy on Wednesday, when it emerged his administration was planning a headline grabbing clampdown on big financial firms that are not covered by banking regulations - even as he lived it up at the $20 million Nantucket home of a private equity billionaire. The Bidens are spending Thanksgiving at the waterfront home of David Rubenstein, who is worth about $3.2 billion, according to a Forbes estimate. Yet on the day before Thanksgiving it emerged that regulators at the Treasury have hedge funds, asset managers, insurance companies, mortgage companies and cryptocurrency exchanges all within their sights. They plan to roll back Trump-era restrictions limiting their regulation. E.J. Antoni, an economist at the Heritage Foundation, said it was another example of Democrats making promises to please the base while they lived the good life. 'Biden dining with these rich plutocrats is just another example of that kind of hypocrisy,' he said.  'People on the left love to say one thing but then do another.'  The Bidens are staying at a luxurious waterfront compound owned by billionaire David...
    Tulsi Gabbard continued to excoriate the Democratic party yesterday, hitting out at its 'woke ideological leadership' and describing Vice President Kamala Harris as 'a perfect example of everything that is wrong with Washington'. The former Hawaii congresswoman ran as a Democrat in the 2020 election, but retired from politics in 2021 and on Tuesday announced that she was leaving the party, citing the 'cowardly wokeness' of its leadership. She told Fox News and Tucker Carlson: 'I cannot be a member of a party which actively undermines our freedom... Today's Democratic Party is controlled by fanatical ideologues who hate freedom. They despise the Constitution. They actively find ways to undermine our God-given rights, enshrined in the Constitution, like freedom of speech.'  But Gabbard, 41, doubled down on her comments during an interview on Brian Kilmeade's radio show yesterday, pointing to Kamala Harris as one of the main examples of the rot of Washington.  'Kamala Harris is a perfect example of everything that is wrong with Washington and the Democratic party of today,' Gabbard said.  'We had a person running for president who...
    THE View fans have blasted Whoopi Goldberg for not being a good example of a TV host due to her latest on-air antics. Viewers have been calling for the moderator to “leave” the show if she’s not going to change her behavior. 4Credit: ABC 4Credit: ABC During Wednesday’s episode of The View, the panelists started discussing a pop culture topic that had Whoopi completely zoning out. Fans have been calling out the host for not paying attention when it comes time for non-political segments, but she continued to do just that during the latest broadcast. While introducing the topic of Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bündchen’s reported marital struggles, the 66-year-old couldn’t help but giggle and make light of it.

    ONE woman's very specific way of styling toilet paper – and her reasoning behind it – has earned her some mockery on social media. The unidentified woman posted on Facebook about what she does to her family's toilet paper supply every week, arguing that it was important so that her sons pick "quality women" to marry. 3One woman shared her special way of styling toilet paper, insisting she was setting an example for her kidsCredit: Getty A screenshot of the post was shared in the Facebook group "That's it I'm bored and shaming everything 2.0."

    Loyola senior Brooks Bahr doesn’t know how far football will take him. But the 6-foot-6, 275-pound defensive lineman is certain he will reach his potential. Bahr said he feels fortunate to be the rare player who has the opportunity to be coached by former NFL players at both the high school and college levels. John Holecek, who played linebacker for the Buffalo Bills, the San Diego Chargers and the Atlanta Falcons from 1995 to 2002, has enjoyed tremendous success since becoming Loyola’s coach in 2006. The Marian Catholic graduate has compiled a 172-36 record and two state titles. The Ramblers have played in six state championship games in that span. Under Holecek’s guidance, Bahr has developed into one of the best players in the state. He is rated as the top-ranked defensive lineman in Illinois and the state’s ninth-best prospect overall in the class of 2023 by 247Sports. He is rated as the 68th-best defensive lineman nationally. Another former, more famous NFL player took notice. Bahr has committed to play at Michigan, where Jim Harbaugh is the coach. Choosing Michigan...

    (CNN)Six-time NBA champion Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has paid tribute to the late Bill Russell, his mentor and friend who he said "leaves a giant example for us all."Russell, an 11-time NBA champion with the Boston Celtics and the league's first Black head coach, died on Sunday aged 88. He was also a prominent civil rights activist, marching alongside Martin Luther King Jr. during the "I Have a Dream" speech in 1963, denouncing racial segregation and supporting Muhammad Ali's refusal to be drafted in the Vietnam War. "He became a role model when I realized some of the things that scared me and bothered me about race relations in America were things that he addressed," Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA's top all-time scorer, told CNN's Don Lemon on Monday."He gave me a way to speak about it that had all of the elements of trying to make something better, rather than just being angry.

    "The average car or van in England is driven just 4% of the time. While most already have a personal phone, 39% of workers globally have employer-provided laptops and mobile phones," the report states. "This is not at all resource efficient." It suggests that expanded use of "car sharing platforms" that let users rent vehicles, for example, could reduce demand for critical metals used to manufacture them. "To enable a broader transition from ownership to usership, the way we design things and systems need to change too," the report continues. "For example, car sharing is made possible by new keyless unlocking features. Similarly, user profiles that create a distinction for work and personal use on the same device is needed to reduce the number of devices per person. A design process that focuses on fulfilling the underlying need instead of designing for product purchasing is fundamental to this transition. "This is the mindset needed to redesign cities to reduce private vehicles and other usages," the report states. The second proposal was to have companies design products...

First, she advises against wearing shapeless dresses. In the example photo she provides, a woman is wearing a loose-fitting dress that doesn’t hug her curves.

    An aesthetic nurse practitioner has insisted she 'didn't mean to offend' after she sparked outrage by reeling off a list of cosmetic surgery procedures that actress Natalia Dyer could undergo.  TikTok star Miranda Wilson, 28, went viral across multiple social media platforms on Sunday after sharing a now-deleted clip in which she detailed the plastic surgery she would give Dyer, 27, as well as sharing an edited image of the results.  Following a fierce backlash from fans of the Stranger Things star, Wilson shared another video on Monday as she called Dyer 'absolutely stunning' and explained she was just using the actress as an example to highlight the types of cosmetic procedures available to the public.  @np.miranda #greenscreen hoping to clear the air that I was not suggesting that Natalia NEEDED any of that work it was just an example.

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Teddy Bridgewater criticized athletes for pretending to be "gangsta" and portraying a "street image." Bridgewater encouraged his fellow NFL players to show a more honest and positive example for young fans instead. "Tired of seeing football players portray this tough guy image or pretend he's a gangsta," Bridgewater wrote in a lengthy message posted to Instagram on Monday. "You went to school, attended those classes, and some even got their college degree."

    This text was taken from the Courrier de l’économie of July 11, 2022. to subscribe, Click here. The first quantum network was born in Sherbrooke. But what is a quantum network? It’s a computer network — fiber optic, to be exact — through which data travels the same way as a normal network (or the Internet). With the difference, instead of exchanging information, we exchange “qubits” of information. in which Qubits are the building blocks of quantum computing. A bit, as we know it, has only two states: either it is zero or it is one. A stack of bits makes it possible to create more advanced functions that take the form of the software and apps we use every day on our workstations and smartphones. Qubits are superpositions of bits that can accept one of two values ​​of a bit simultaneously. This feature makes it possible to overclock a computer’s computing power. For example, a quantum computer developed by Google researchers is currently 158 million times faster than the most powerful “traditional” supercomputer in solving...
    Writing about a love of reading can feel like preaching to the choir. After all, most people who sit down to read such a thing (probably) like reading enough as a baseline to bother … Well, reading. But I still feel there is no solace quite like a book. It feels trite to say we’re in difficult times, but again, it feels true to say that books have been helping me keep a sense of stability and relief while so many of us are under so much stress. Between the COVID-19 pandemic, a seemingly endless news cycle, and the ongoing loss of our precious rights, books are still here for us.  Of course, I can’t wax poetic about books without mentioning that books are also under attack. As Daily Kos continues to cover, we’re seeing conservatives push down against books hard in both public libraries and public school classrooms. Books facing challenges are mostly by LGBTQ+ folks and writers of color (and especially so if the writer is a queer person of color), but there’s a considerable range otherwise. There are picture...

    by Eric Lendrum   New reports claim that Mexican cartels are now turning to online video games to recruit potential new scouts for the southern border. According to the Daily Caller, the Mexican cyber police claim that there have already been at least 30 confirmed cases of attempted recruitments on video games. Cartels are targeting gamers and bribing them with cash payments, using a careful assortment of letters and numbers to spell out key words without facing bans for using the words directly. For example, they will use “n4arc0” instead of “narcos,” “c4rt3ls,” instead of “cartels,” and “zic4ri0s” instead of “sicarios.” Such recruiters also wait for confirmation that the gamers are alone, without their parents nearby, before approaching them. “We have identified a situation that is worrying us that girls, boys and adolescents are not denouncing these behaviors that are manifesting for fear of being scolded by their parents, of being exposed within society and being singled out,” said Oaxaca Mauricio Valdez, Director of the Cyber Police. One example is Ernesto, a 13-year-old gamer who said he and another friend...
    Schoolteachers at an Oregon elementary school claim that eye-rolling directed at the principal is a form of aggression 'rooted in white supremacy.' BIPOC teachers at Errol Hassell Elementary school sent an email to school administrators on May 27 after hearing that their principal, Cynthia Lam Moffett, may be removed from her position, Fox News reports.  BIPOC stands for black, indigenous, and people of color.  "We believe that much of the resistance to Principal Moffett’s work… is a result of bias and targeted aggression. As BIPOC educators we have observed, experienced, and witnessed similar micro and macro aggressions,' the teachers said in the email.  The email sent by the teachers claims that Principal Cynthia Lam Moffett is the victim of 'biased and targeted aggression' from other members of the staff Included in the list of micro and macro aggressions provided was an example of staff members rolling their eyes 'during meetings while Principal Moffett was speaking.'  The teachers also claimed 'staff raised their voice and interrupted Principal Moffett during… meetings, and spoke in a disrespectful and aggressive manner.'

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, says his COVID-19 recovery is an “example” for the nation on the protection offered by vaccines and boosters. Speaking during a White House briefing, Fauci, 81, said he began experiencing virus symptoms on June 14 and tested positive a day later. He was prescribed the anti-viral drug paxlovid, which has proven to be highly effective at preventing serious illness and death from COVID-19, on June 15. “I’m still feeling really quite fine,” Fauci said Thursday, as the administration emphasized the protection offered by vaccines to people of all ages, after the U.S. became the first country in the world to extend vaccine eligibility to children as young as six months. “I think I’m an example, given my age, of what we’re all talking about today,” Fauci said. “I’m vaccinated. I’m doubly boosted. And I believe if that were not the case, I very likely would not be talking to you looking as well as I look, I think, right now. So all as well with Fauci.”...

    PITTSBURGH — Joc Pederson has played in four World Series. He’s attended a Super Bowl. The Palo Alto kid turned Giants slugger remembers celebrating San Francisco’s 2010 title on Market Street and watching the “We Believe” Warriors at Oracle Arena. But until Thursday night, Pederson had never been to an NBA Finals game. He picked a good one to make his first. Pederson had a courtside view inside TD Garden to watch the Warriors win their fourth championship in eight years. “It was a treat to be able to see such an accomplishment by the team but really the four — Steph, Klay, Draymond and Andre Iguodala — the dynasty they created, it’s incredible,” Pederson said. “To see the emotion after the game and celebration it just shows how much goes into it.

    Eileen Gu, the California-born freestyle skier who reportedly made tens of millions while competing for China in the Beijing Olympics, has taken a job with the committee behind Salt Lake City's bid for the upcoming winter games.      The 18-year-old was raised in a wealthy San Francisco neighborhood and was educated at leafy private academies there, but became China's darling during last winter's Olympic Games when she chose to compete for the country.  Gu's mother is Chinese, and her father is said to be American.  The New York Times reported that 'there is no public record of Gu's father' and that she declined to say whether she knew anything about him.  It is unclear what citizenship Gu holds, as China does not allow dual-citizenship. However, there has been speculation that China made an exception for Gu, as Chinese officials have avoided addressing her particular status. 'I'm American when I'm in the US, and I'm Chinese when I'm in China,' she told CNN in February.   She won two gold medals for China, and reportedly raked in at least $31.4million in endorsements as she...
    The reason why most Hispanic people do not support using the term "Latinx" is because the word does not make any grammatical sense in the Spanish language. Spanish utilizes grammatical gender, a linguistic feature used by approximately one-fourth of all languages. Grammatical gender is often unrelated to biological gender, and instead ensures grammatical coherence within languages that use it. In Spanish, grammatical gender can provide gender information about a person (a young boy, for example, is called a niño, whereas a young girl is called a niña). But most often grammatical gender designations have nothing to do with biological gender. For example, in Spanish "people" is a feminine noun (la gente), whereas "bridge" is a masculine noun (el puente). This is why Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego (Ariz.) announced last year that his staff members cannot use the term "Latinx." "To be clear my office is not allowed to use 'Latinx' in official communications," Gallego explained. "When Latino politicos use the term it is largely to appease white rich progressives who think that is the term we use. It is...
    Though certainly not an easy task, it’s important that we stay engaged with what conservatives are pushing on the state level before hateful bills make it all the way to a governor’s desk. In an ideal world, such bills would be small potatoes, but thanks to the Republican Party’s bliss in stirring outrage over marginalized people simply existing, we have many, many heinous bills bubbling up all over the nation. One such bill is stewing in South Carolina, as highlighted over at South Carolina United. The South Carolina state Senate passed H 4608 last week in an attempt to ban trans youth from participating in sports teams that align with their gender identity. Sadly, there is nothing surprising about this move. More recently, however, the same Senate voted to pass H 4776, misleadingly titled the “Medical Ethics and Diversity Act,” which would essentially permit medical providers, health care institutions, and insurance companies to deny care to LGBTQ+ people based on their religious, ethical, or moral beliefs, as covered by local outlet ABC News 4. If signed into law, these workers would be...

Initially, not everyone could use the government’s future mobile processor. Here are the requirements: Have a new biometric ID card: Unlike the old classic card, the card’s electronic chip makes it possible to get information about your identity. Currently, only 4.5 million French people have this new form of identity card, which was released in August 2021. Have a smartphone...
    The president of Franciscan University has urged that women’s sports be reserved for biological women in an op-ed this week in USA Today. “Biology 101 tells us men’s bodies and women’s bodies are different,” writes Dave Pivonka in Thursday’s op-ed. “Because they are, Title IX legislation has elevated women’s sports in schools over the past 50 years, making it possible for more female athletes to compete against other female athletes.” “Because their bodies are different, we have the NBA and WNBA, the PGA and LPGA, ATP and WTA,” Pivonka writes. “These divisions give women the opportunity to measure their hard work and success against other women on an even playing field.” Given current conditions, however, some female athletes have to “compete against athletes who I believe have an unfair advantage: transgender women,” he declares, citing the recent example of Lia Thomas, a biological male who won an NCAA women’s swimming competition in Division I. Pivonka acknowledges the pain and isolation faced by men and women who struggle with their sexual identity, but insists that reassignment surgery, hormones, and drugs are not the...
    Humans select foods to meet our need for vitamins and minerals – challenging notions that we favour starchy ones. It has long been thought we seek out energy-dense foods and get vitamins and minerals from eating a variety of dishes. But a study now suggests humans may have ‘nutritional wisdom’, preferring foods that could benefit health. Humans are more sophisticated in their dietary choice than previously thought. A new study suggests we pick food based on micronutrient content rather than starch content Lead author Jeff Brunstrom, professor of experimental psychology at Bristol University, said: ‘The results of our studies are hugely significant and rather surprising. ‘For the first time in almost a century, we’ve shown humans are more sophisticated in their food choices and appear to select based on specific micronutrients rather than simply eating everything and getting what they need by default.’ In experiments involving 128 adults, the team measured preference by showing participants images of different fruit and vegetable pairings. This showed they preferred certain food combinations more than others. For example, apple and banana might be chosen slightly...
    School districts across the country have paid Kendi upwards of $30,000 to give short speeches and help them incorporate his teachings in thousands of K-12 classrooms. His ideas about racial equity have also influenced COVID vaccine distribution policies and criminal justice reform efforts. Kendi is a dogged defender of his faith, and he wants to see it incorporated into every aspect of American life. The irony is that Kendi is a critic of capitalism, struggles to define the word “racism,” and fails to equitably apply his own principles. As is the case with many religious leaders, an abundance of zeal often covers over flaws in doctrine. Kendi’s imperfections should be even more of an encouragement for Christian conservatives who want their faith reflected in our laws and policies, but fear imposing their views on the broader public. If we can agree that every law makes a moral stance and lawmakers are already being influenced by spiritual teachers, the question then becomes, “What would a thoroughly Christian agenda that serves the common good look like?” I believe it...
    When Alyssa Nakken stepped into the first base coach’s box in the third inning Tuesday night, it was a moment worth celebrating. There’s now been a woman in an on-field role in a regular season Major League Baseball game, a glass ceiling-shattering that Nakken and the Giants have been building towards for a few seasons. And now, Nakken’s bright orange City Connect helmet is heading to Cooperstown. The helmet, as well as other mementos of Nakken’s from the three seasons on staff, are symbols ostensibly to show girls and women that there is a place in this game for them. But the example that Nakken and the Giants are setting for boys and men is just as important, too. And it’s one that I keep thinking about, given my own baseball upbringing. My parents have been sports fanatics since long before I was born. My father, Michael, has had Giants season tickets since the 1970s. But his athletic pedigree pales in comparison to my mom, Angie. Angie was a four-sport athlete in high school and played college softball for Cal...

Exact date unknown.Credit: Alamy And because dementia affects people in different ways, symptoms may not always be obvious.  But failure to recognise early signs often leads to people not being diagnosed for several years. While the disease cannot be reversed, a diagnosis as soon as possible has a number of benefits. This includes making decisions on your future and taking advantage of resources while you are still able to.

    When Tucker Carlson insists there is no reason for Americans to distrust Russian President Vladimir Putin — and that his reputation for criminal brutality is simply fabricated by the "globalist deep state" controlled by George Soros — his rhetoric conceals the true source of friction between the United States and Russia. Having erupted in the bloody destruction wreaked by Putin on Ukraine, that uniquely alarming conflict will persist even if the world escapes the worst consequences now. To understand this peril means setting aside the myths and lies promulgated by Putin's enormous worldwide propaganda apparatus and its operatives in this country — not just Carlson but former Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon and a virtual army of the minions of former President Donald Trump. Let's be clear: No matter what Putin or his apologists may claim, he didn't invade because of fears that Ukraine will join NATO, which he knows won't happen anytime soon. He didn't invade because he worries about alleged Ukrainian nuclear, chemical or biological weapons programs, which he knows do not exist. And he certainly didn't...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Debbie Mancini spent about 40 years showing homes as a real estate agent. Now, she’s walking through them to inspect. Mancini created A Harmony Home Inspection about 30 years ago and provides service all over western Pennsylvania.

I’m going to die.’ No, no, this is what we’re going to do. It’s just about educating, and that’s what I do best. I educate.” But Mancini said at first, some people don’t want to listen. “I think the biggest challenge is just right up front because people look at you and immediately judge you,” Mancini said. “I’m here to say this is what a home inspector looks like in Debbie land.” In 2019, women made up about 10 percent of construction and building inspectors nationwide, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics. But Mancini said being a woman in a male-dominated field...
    During an interview on "The Vince Coglianese Show," former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson noted that "many people fought, gave their lives to bring equality. And now we're reverting back to identity politics. And as we continue to do that, we're bringing more division into our country."
    Something miraculous happens to gardeners at this time of year. I don’t know what triggers it. Perhaps it was the sight of Christmas trees and lights, or the presence of all those poinsettias. Whatever the cause, by January, gardeners have let go of last year’s gardens and start to dream about this year’s effort. Just a short while ago, we were doing all manner of fall gardening and yard care. At the end of the season, gardening can seem more like a chore than an enjoyable hobby. We harvest vegetables, fret about mowing the lawn, deal with leaves, clean perennial beds and have to plant garlic before the frost. Now, however, the memory slate has been cleaned. Somehow we’ve forgotten all the hard work last year’s gardens entailed. Refreshed, we find ourselves spending an afternoon browsing the internet looking for this year’s seeds or thumbing through an actual, hard-copy, seed catalog planning this year’s gardens. Last year’s blisters, failures and misfortunes have been replaced by enthusiasm, and an optimism we may have lost as last year’s efforts dragged on. So,...
    Anthony Fauci must apologize for calling a Republican senator a 'moron', a group of GOP congressmen have said - accusing him of spreading divisiveness and calling his hot mic moment 'just the latest example of his tragic failure to lead.' Fauci, the nation's top public health expert, clashed last week with Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas after Marshall repeatedly asked him about his financial disclosures. Fauci, 80, has led the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984 and is the highest-paid federal employee in the country, making $434,312 a year as head of the NIAID. President Joe Biden's salary is $400,000.  When he retires, Fauci's pension will be the largest in US history, exceeding $350,000 per year. Marshall wanted to see Fauci's financial information; Fauci told him the documents were public. Dr Anthony Fauci (left) is seen on January 11, during a heated Congressional hearing, holding up a screenshot from Rand Paul's website where he fundraises by getting supporters to pay to donate to his 'Fire Dr Fauci' campaign.

    "In a lot of ways, yes," Fried doubled down. She cited DeSantis' proposal to revive the Florida State Guard, just like 22 other states, as an example of how he supposedly is an authoritarian acting "for the sole purposes of his power." "Do I think that we're going to get to the extent of Hitler's power? Of course not," Fried said after the host mentioned that some people might find her comments offensive. "But the rise of his power and what he did to scapegoat certain parts, especially the Jewish community in Germany, and how he utilized going after the media, going after and scapegoating people ... that's what this governor is doing." After the interview, DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw slammed Fried and said her take was "as offensive as it is absurd." "With this hysterical comparison, Fried not only smears millions of Floridians as Nazis, but also trivializes Hitler's crimes against humanity," Pushaw said. But on Twitter Sunday Fried was unrepentant. "Ron DeSantis and his anti-democratic demagoguery is a danger to our state, our country, and...
    Though the phrasing of “defund the police” has proven to be more than a little divisive among Democrats and progressives, many of us do agree with core sentiments in the movement. Even simply reforming police departments could make a huge difference in quality of life, public health, and community dynamics in this nation. One of those ideas, for example, involves decreasing (or abolishing) the involvement of armed law enforcement officers when it comes to helping people who may be experiencing a mental health crisis. This could involve having a social worker or mental health expert on the scene instead, for instance, or even the presence of a police officer who isn’t armed. For people of color, this difference could literally be lifesaving. As reported by Michigan Radio, an exciting proposal related to mental health and policing is in the works. Milton Dohoney, who serves as the Interim City Manager for Ann Arbor, Michigan, recently shared that even folks in the police department have acknowledged that mental health crises (in addition to other scenarios, like issues between neighbors and folks who...
    Roman Kosolapov/123rf.com Whether you’re planning to start streaming or you’ve been doing it for a while, you might be in need of a hardware upgrade. Not every desktop computer is optimized for streaming, and the system you have right now could be limiting the quality of your broadcast — and thus affecting your ability to grow and hold an audience. What you need is to find the best desktop for streaming on Twitch or whatever platform you want to broadcast on. Of course, you don’t have to use a desktop — there are some excellent laptops for streaming as well, and laptops have the added advantage of being compact and portable. But a desktop PC is easily expandable, can be upgraded over time to improve performance, and lets you easily add a truly enormous monitor (or multiple monitors). But here’s the deal: You don’t have to buy the most expensive computer you can find to get great streaming performance, and you might not need the horsepower where you expect. It’s more important, for example, to have a better...

    Chinese footballers will need to undergo the painful process of having tattoos removed or risk being snubbed by the national team following a new order banning the body work. The General Administration of Sport (GAS) have gone a step further than they did in 2018 when players were forced to cover up tattoos to continue playing. In their latest move GAS have outlawed tattoos altogether and want any player with pre-existing tattoos to get them removed in order to 'set a good example' for Chinese society. 'The national team and the U23 national team athletes are strictly prohibited from having new tattoos, and those who already have tattoos are advised to remove them themselves,' the GAS statement said. 'If there are special circumstances agreed by the team, (players) must cover up the tattoos during training and matches.'  China has previous in wading into the appearance of its players with a women's football match in 2018 called off after players were told they were prohibited from playing with dyed hair.

    Oprah Winfrey said Dr. Mehmet Oz’s decision to run for office is an example of the greatness of American democracy, according to a statement. “One of the great things about our democracy is that every citizen can decide to run for public office,” Winfrey said in a statement provided to Intelligencer. “Mehmet Oz has made that decision. And now it’s up to the residents of Pennsylvania to decide who will represent them.” Oz announced his candidacy in the 2022 Pennsylvania Senate race at the end of November, running as a Republican to replace Sen. Pat Toomey. Winfrey has a long professional relationship with Oz, often having him as a guest on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and offering to produce “The Dr. Oz Show” through her company Harpo Productions in 2009, People reported.

    When a replicated version of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website surfaced on the internet suggesting that President Joe Biden had proposed plan for COVID concentration camps, Senate candidate J.D. Vance fired back with critical remarks aimed at the president. However, there is just one problem with his criticism: the website was completely fake. Now, the gullible Trump-supporting Senate hopeful is on the receiving end of the criticism. According to The Daily Beast, there were a number of elements on the site that indicated it was a parody but apparently, the "Hillbilly Elegy" author and Yale Law School graduate overlooked those details and immediately launched his attack. One of the most glaring details is the DHS Secretary listed on the parody. Instead of listing the correct person, the site features the name of an actor. "The venture capitalist and would-be politician perhaps should have noticed that the site—which claimed to outline government intentions to restrict cross-state travel and set up Australia-like “quarantine centers”—listed the DHS Secretary not as present officeholder Alejandro Mayorkas but as Tim...
