    THOMAS TUCHEL has suggested that Romelu Lukaku is unlikely to ever play for Chelsea again. The Belgian returned to Stamford Bridge for £97.5million last summer to much fanfare, only to be shipped back to Inter Milan on loan less than 12 months later. 2Romelu Lukaku is unlikely to play for Chelsea againCredit: AFP Lukaku, 29, will still have three years left on his lucrative £325,000-a-week contract at Stamford Bridge. Despite this, Tuchel doesn't believe there is likely to be a way back for Chelsea's former No9. Speaking from the Blues' pre-season tour of the US, the German told Sky Sports: "Given the fact he's just on loan, of course there's a chance. "I don't know if it's very likely, but it's not on me to give an outlook on that. There is a chance for it."

    Getty Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. The Brooklyn Nets appeared to be out of the woods with all of the drama after Kyrie Irving opted into his contract for the next season. As it turns out, a bigger domino was just waiting to fall and it’s in the form of Kevin Durant requesting a trade out of Brooklyn, despite having a whopping four years left on his deal. Trades of this magnitude don’t come every day, so it’s expected that many teams will be calling about an offer. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat are two teams Durant would be open to going to. Phoenix and Miami are among two of the teams that Kevin Durant has on his wish list, sources tell ESPN, but the Nets plan to move Durant where they can get the best possible deal. With four years on his contract, there's no shortage of teams willing to unload assets for Durant. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2022 With the Durant bombshell dropped, the future for Irving is now...
    ARSENAL are edging closer to completing a deal for Bologna left-back Aaron Hickey, according to reports. Hickey, 19, has been a top transfer target for Mikel Arteta and his staff this year. 1Hickey could be on his way to ArsenalCredit: PA The Gunners are looking to bolster their defence this summer after narrowly missing out on Champions League football. The left-back position has been identified as one of the areas to improve, especially given Kieran Tierney's recurring injury issues. But now it looks like the club have finally found a solution. According to Gazzetta dello Sport as per Sportwitness, Arsenal are "pressing heavily" to sign Hickey from Bologna with an offer of £21.25million.

    Drew Angerer/Getty Images Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) may not like it, but he believes former President Donald Trump is all but a cinch to win the GOP presidential nomination in 2024 — if he wants it. According to Politico, the Utah senator cannot conjure a development that would keep Trump from representing the Republican party in the fall of 2024. “I don’t delude myself into thinking I have a big swath of the Republican Party,” Romney told Politico. “It’s hard to imagine anything that would derail his support. So if he wants to become the nominee in ‘24, I think he’s very likely to achieve that.” A Trump 2024 bid would likely mean more of Romney trying to go incognito while on vacation in Florida. According to the new book This Will Not Pass (via Insider), Romney has regularly worn hats while out and about in Palm Beach — where he has a vacation home — in an effort not to be recognized by MAGA fans. “If he were recognized by Trump supporters there, there was a good chance he...
    Australia is worried that a new defense pact means Chinese troops will soon be posted in the South Pacific. After the Solomon Islands and China announced they finalized a security agreement last week, Australian officials have expressed concerns about what the relationship means for international security. On Wednesday, Australia’s Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews said she thought it was “very likely” China will request to put troops in the Solomon Islands within a year. Andrews’s warning came just two days after Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison warned that China erecting a naval base in the islands would be a “red line.” AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER SAYS CHINESE NAVAL BASE IN SOLOMON ISLANDS IS A ‘RED LINE’ Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare insisted the deal doesn’t allow China to build a naval base, but U.S officials are concerned that the deal the two countries signed hasn’t been released. “I think it’s clear that only a handful of people in a very small circle have seen this agreement,” Daniel Kritenbrink, assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific...
    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight,” economist, Harvard Professor, Director of the National Economic Council under President Barack Obama, and Treasury Secretary under President Bill Clinton Larry Summers said that inflation will not “get that close to the 2% that is the Fed’s central objective.” And that while it’s not for certain, “probably early next year, the most likely thing is that you’ll see the economy will be very substantially slow and perhaps you’ll see a period of negative growth.” Summers stated, “I think what you’re most likely to see is interest rates rise to some point above 3%. I certainly think you’ll see inflation come down from 8%, but I don’t think it’s going to get that close to the 2% that is the Fed’s central objective. And I think some time, probably early next year, the most likely thing is that you’ll see the economy will be very substantially slow and perhaps you’ll see a period of negative growth. Which is, of course, the definition of a recession. I think that’s the most likely thing from...
    MANCHESTER United forward Anthony Martial admits he is expecting to return to Old Trafford after struggling during his loan spell with Sevilla. The Frenchan took a pay-cut from his reported £130,000 a week deal to secure a move away from the club in January, but has scored just once since. 1Anthony Martial hoped a loan move to Sevilla would revitalise his career, but he has struggled to make an impact in La Liga.Credit: Getty Martial, 26, expressed his desire to leave Old Trafford after talks with interim Manchester United manager Ralf Ragnick early in the January transfer window. A deal with Sevilla looked to have fallen through after the Spanish club refused to pay a loan fee and cover half of his wages. A compromise was found which enabled Martial to move until the end of the season, but no purchase clause was included in the deal.

    DENVER (CBS4) – A classic March snowstorm is on the way to Colorado’s Front Range for Wednesday night and Thursday morning. It will begin with rain developing sometime during the afternoon before mixing with and changing to snow between 7 p.m. and midnight. Snow totals are always a challenge to predict in the Denver area thanks to the very complex terrain. But this storm will be extra challenging because it won’t be terribly cold. When storms don’t have a lot of cold air associated with them we see a bigger than normal range of snow totals due to subtle changes in elevation. Storms like the one approaching for Wednesday night usually produce what we call a sharp gradient in meteorology. A gradient is a change in something over distance, and the more abrupt that change, the sharper it is. Sharp elevation drops between cities like Boulder and Firestone can often lead to one location with several inches of snow and the other with little to none. The big winners from this storm should be those with an elevation above...
    Fiona Hill explained the most likely scenarios for the end of the Russian war against Ukraine, and she doesn't think any of them will be good. The foreign policy adviser and Russia expert told New York Times columnist Ezra Klein that Vladimir Putin remains in control of the situation, and he would likely remain in control of how and when the conflict would end -- and he won't accept defeat. "A lot of this depends on -- a deep sigh there -- on how we respond," Hill said. "We have to be extraordinarily careful given the dangers that we already outlined. We are dealing with somebody, in the form of Vladimir Putin, who sees himself as all tied up with the Russian state. He cannot lose, so we have to kind of figure out about how to formulate something that deals with that and the fact that he's likely to react strongly, badly to any perceived intervention on the part of NATO, of NATO forces, painting the Russians into a corner." "Discussions of economic warfare, we have to tamp all...
    On Thursday’s broadcast of CNBC’s “Closing Bell,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said that “We’re likely to see another year in which 12-month inflation numbers remain very uncomfortably high.” But cautioned there is a large amount of uncertainty due to the conflict in Ukraine and expressed confidence in the Federal Reserve “to make a meaningful difference going forward.” Co-host Sara Eisen asked, “Already had been happening and is happening in the U.S., when it comes to rising prices from everything from wages to rents to food prices, I think your expectation previously is that inflation would come down in the second half of this year to normal levels. Have you revised those expectations, where do you think we’ll be at the end of the year?” Yellen responded, “So, I think there’s a lot of uncertainty that is related to what’s going on with Russia and Ukraine and I do think that it’s exacerbating inflation. I don’t want to make a prediction exactly as to what’s going to happen in the second half of the year. We’re likely to see another year...
    Janet Yellen, U.S. Treasury secretary, speaks during an interview at the National Association of Business Economics (NABE) annual meeting in Arlington, Virginia, U.S., on Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2021.Amanda Andrade-Rhoades | Bloomberg | Getty Images Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Thursday that Americans will likely see another year of "very uncomfortably high" inflation as Russia's invasion of Ukraine muddles her prior forecast that price acceleration would moderate in the months ahead. "I think there's a lot of uncertainty that is related to what's going on with Russia in Ukraine," Yellen told CNBC's "Closing Bell." "And I do think that it's exacerbating inflation. I don't want to make a prediction exactly as to what's going to happen in the second half of the year," she continued. "We're likely to see another year in which 12-month inflation numbers remain very uncomfortably high." The Treasury secretary's comments came just hours after the Labor Department published its latest gauge on how fast prices are climbing for American consumers. The report showed that consumer prices rose 7.9% in the 12 months ending in February, the hottest...
    We are on the verge of what will be the last report on the Consumer Price Index of the covid zero interest rate era. Last month, the Department of Labor said that prices were up 7.5 percent year over year in January, the biggest 12-month price jump since February 1982. The figures for February are likely to show even steeper prices increases. Analysts are expecting prices to be up 7.9 percent, the biggest jump since January of 1982. There’s good reason to suspect inflation might be running even hotter than that. Last week, the government reported that employment grew by 678,000. In addition, the growth in December was revised up by 78,000 to 510,000, and the January figure was revised up by 14,000 to 467,000. Unemployment fell to 3.8 percent. To put this in context, the February gain was six times the monthly average for the last few decades, according to Bank of America’s Ethan Harris. This kind of gain is made all the more extraordinary because it comes at a time when we are already at or near full employment. The number for...
    (CNN)We have way more questions than answers about the 2024 presidential election. Is President Joe Biden going to run again? He has said he plans to, but if he doesn't, who emerges as the Democratic nominee? Is former President Donald Trump going to run again? Would anyone seriously challenge him for the Republican nomination? Like I said, more unknowns than knowns. Read More But if recent history is any guide, we do know one important thing: The 2024 election is very likely to be extremely close. That point is made powerfully in a new paper from William A. Galston and Elaine Kamarck published by the Progressive Policy Institute that lays out the challenges -- and dangers -- for Democrats in the coming presidential race. This stat from the study stood out to me: "Of the 17 presidential elections between 1920 and 1984, 10 were settled by margins of 10 percentage points or more in the popular vote. ... But in the nine elections between 1988 and 2020, no candidate has come close to a 10-point victory margin, and five...
    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends First,” Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) said that a Russian invasion of Ukraine is “imminent and it’s very likely” and that sanctions will not be effective because “the Germans are not going to get on board” with any sanctions regime due to President Joe Biden’s energy policy undermining American energy and moving the world onto Russia’s environmentally dirty gas. Waltz said, “I do think it’s imminent and it’s very likely that Putin is going to invade.” He later added, “I want Americans to understand that Biden’s failed energy policies are directly leading to instability around the world. When Biden shuts down American pipelines, American drilling, puts regulation on our fracking, and moves us away from energy independence, he’s moving the world towards Russian oil and gas. And then you add on top of that green-lighting the Russian pipeline, which, by the way, moves the dirtiest form of gas in the world. So, the environmental argument doesn’t even weigh in. Every time that price of oil goes up, you see Putin...
    We’ve come a long way from the days of Bill “I Didn’t Inhale” Clinton and our overwrought collective freakout over ordinary and decidedly normal cannabis use. Not that long ago, video of a U.S. Senate candidate smoking weed in a field would be considered lurid oppo research. But now, at least one candidate, Gary Chambers, is featuring it in his campaign advertising.  Now, I doubt Chambers will win. Why? He was filmed smoking a blunt and the video got out—and he’s a Black man running in the Deep South. The fact that he released the footage himself may not matter that much in the end. Plus, Chambers is running for Louisiana Republican John Kennedy’s seat, and that dude will never get caught using drugs—because he is drugs. Have you ever seen Kennedy on Fox News? He’s like a 4 AM bath-salts-and-Sanka hallucination. Nevertheless, this campaign ad from Senate candidate Gary Chambers is a big, important step forward, and a great wake-up call for, well, everyone—cannabis users and John Kennedy fanboys alike.  Watch: x x YouTube Video Transcript!

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said on CBS on Sunday that Russia, under President Vladimir Putin, is “very likely” to invade Ukraine. “Do you fear these diplomatic talks are just building a pre-text for Russia to say they have no choice but to invade,” asked Face The Nation host Margaret Brennan. “I fear that Putin is very likely to invade. I still, frankly, don’t understand the full motivation for why, why now he’s doing this. but he certainly appears intent on it unless we can persuade him otherwise,” said Schiff. “And I think nothing other than a level of sanctions that Russia has never seen will deter him, and that’s exactly what we need to do with our allies.” Schiff’s comments came after President Joe Biden talked with Putin by phone on Dec. 30 ahead of a bilateral summit between Russia and the United States on Jan. 10 in Geneva, Switzerland. In a statement by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Biden “urged Russia to de-escalate tensions with Ukraine. “He made clear that the...
    A doctor monitors a Covid-19 patient in the Covid-19 intensive care unit of the community hospital in Germany on April 28, 2021.RONNY HARTMANN | AFP | Getty Images LONDON — The omicron Covid variant is likely to spread further and poses a "very high" global risk, according to the World Health Organization, which warned Monday that surges of Covid infections caused by the variant of concern could have "severe consequences" for some areas. "Given mutations that may confer immune escape potential and possibly transmissibility advantage, the likelihood of potential further spread of Omicron at the global level is high," the WHO said in its risk assessment on Monday within a technical brief to its 194 member states. "Depending on these characteristics, there could be future surges of Covid-19, which could have severe consequences, depending on a number of factors including where surges may take place. The overall global risk related to the new VOC [variant of concern] Omicron is assessed as very high," the U.N. health agency said. The WHO designated the variant B.1.1.529, which was first spotted in South...
    POLICE have a strong case for a Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito murder-suicide conclusion due to domestic violence and four other factors, an expert has exclusively told The Sun.

    by Blake Mathews | CBS 11 Meteorologist FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Sometimes the weather can really blow. READ MORE: Child Killed, 1 Person Injured After Being Struck By Vehicle In Fort WorthA strengthening area of low pressure, responsible for pushing a line of strong to severe thunderstorms through our area, will move to the east on Wednesday and allow a drier, cooler airmass to rush into our area. As that area of low pressure deepens, it’ll tighten the pressure gradient which will cause the wind to approach freeway speeds in some areas. The National Weather Service will almost certainly issue a Wind Advisory for the entire area with some areas in our far western zones being upgraded to a High Wind Warning where wind speeds could exceed 50 mph! That’ll rearrange your ‘do’ and relocate many of those Halloween decorations. Therefore hunker them down – with the high impact hairspray or yard stakes respectively. So what’s this gradient I speak of? The winds of the planet are driven by the difference between high and low pressure. The stronger each of...
    Anthony Fauci said Sunday that children between the ages of five and 11 will 'very likely' be able to receive the coronavirus vaccine by the first or second week of November. This means, kids may be able to get the jab as soon as eight days from Sunday, according to the nation's top expert on infectious diseases at the National Institutes of Health.

    According to Bertolino, the dry bag was in a patch of brambles, and Chris reportedly didn't want to disturb the bag before law enforcement were able to see it. Chris, however, reportedly could not find law enforcement and "didn't want to leave the bag there with a news reporter standing nearby" so he picked it up and met up a short time later with authorities. "[Law enforcement] looked at the contents of the bag," Bertolino explained. "At that time, law enforcement officers showed him a picture on the phone of a backpack that law enforcement had located also nearby and also some distance off the trail." At that point, authorities told the Laundries that they also discovered remains near the backpack, and asked the two to leave the preserve. By Thursday morning, K-9 units and off-road vehicles were seen entering the reserve for further investigation. A medical examiner on Wednesday evening said that formal identification of the remains may take some time. A source close to the investigation said that the remains "appear to...

    A man wears an 'UNVACCINATED' t-shirt ahead of U.S. President Donald Trump's "Save America" rally at York Family Farms on August 21, 2021 in Cullman, Alabama.Chip Somodevilla | Getty Images Americans who are unvaccinated against Covid-19 are largely driven by a mistrust of the government and fears over vaccine side effects, and there is very little that can be done to persuade them to get the shots, a new CNBC/Change Research poll reveals. Change Research surveyed 1,775 respondents for CNBC from Aug. 30 to Sept. 2 about Americans' views on Covid vaccines, President Joe Biden, former President Donald Trump and various other issues. Among the 29% of U.S. voters who are unvaccinated, 83% say they do not plan to get the life-saving shots, the survey shows.

    The Taliban, in fact, freed top Al Qaeda terrorists and "thousands" of ISIS-K fighters from Afghanistan prisons.What is the significance of Milley's admission?If Milley is correct about the future of Afghanistan, then it would essentially nullify the American military campaign there that spanned nearly two decades, cost trillions of dollars, and resulted in the deaths of thousands of U.S. service members and more than 100,000 Afghans. In fact, the stated reason for invading Afghanistan in Oct. 2001 following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks was to uproot the Taliban-controlled government, which had provided terrorist groups, including Al Qaeda, with a safe haven to plot terrorist activity. What, then, was the point of the war if Afghanistan once again becomes a base of operation for international terrorists? That is a question President Joe Biden will be forced to answer.
    On Monday, House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) relayed some sobering news about the situation in Afghanistan when he told reporters that evacuations will likely extend past the August 31 deadline, during which time airport security will remain hostile. Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill following a classified intel briefing, Schiff said that it’s “very unlikely” evacuations in Afghanistan will be over by August 31 due to the overwhelming number of Americans, Afghan allies, and potential refugees currently stranded in the region amid an increasingly hostile security threat. Schiff soberingly admitted: I think it’s possible, but I think it’s very unlikely. Given the number of Americans who still need to be evacuated, the number of SIVs, the number of others who are members of the Afghan press, civil society leaders, women leaders. It’s hard for me to imagine all of that can be accomplished between now and the end of the month. Schiff did, however, emphasize he felt “encouraged” by the number of people being evacuated from the region on a daily basis. “We had 11,000 people in a...
    Key facts: Cathie Wood, the CEO of Ark Invest, says that Bitcoin consumes less energy than banks. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey claims that bitcoin is the native currency of the internet. At the Bitcoin (BTC) news event, The B Word, this Wednesday, July 21, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk admitted that the two companies own bitcoin, and that he has personally invested in Ethereum and dogecoin as well. . Musk, who participated with Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey and Ark Invest CEO Cathie Wood, noted as “very likely” that Tesla will accept bitcoin again as a means of payment. While Musk had reservations regarding the proof-of-work Bitcoin consensus mechanism, he called himself a supporter of cryptocurrencies. “I have bitcoin, Tesla owns bitcoin and SpaceX also owns bitcoin,” said the executive. I also claim that you have personally invested in ether (ETH) and dogecoin (DOGE), although your investment in bitcoin is “significantly higher” than what you have invested in the other two cryptocurrencies.

    DENVER (CBS4) – A late spring storm system slowly swinging through Colorado over the Memorial Day will cause widespread clouds, much cooler than normal temperatures, and a good chance for moisture. The storm will stay hundreds of miles northwest of Colorado on Friday so most areas will stay dry and warm with high temperatures in the lower 80s around Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins. There is only a 10% chance for a late day thunderstorm in the metro area on Friday. The chance is only slightly higher in the mountains.

    DENVER (CBS4) – A late spring storm system slowly swinging through Colorado over the Memorial Day will cause widespread clouds, much cooler than normal temperatures, and a good chance for moisture. The storm will stay hundreds of miles northwest of Colorado on Friday so most areas will stay dry and warm with high temperatures in the lower 80s around Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins. There is only a 10% chance for a late day thunderstorm in the metro area on Friday. The chance is only slightly higher in the mountains.

    A woman jogs past a cordoned off Merlion Park on June 12, 2020 in Singapore.Suhaimi Abdullah | Getty Images SINGAPORE — Singapore's government said Friday it's "very likely" that the air travel bubble with Hong Kong will not begin on May 26, as the Southeast Asian city-state further tightens measures to curb a rise in local Covid cases. The air travel bubble would have allowed travelers to skip quarantine. It has faced multiple delays from its initial launch date on November 2020 as Hong Kong reported resurgence in Covid-19 cases. Both Singapore and Hong Kong are major Asian business hubs without domestic air travel markets. Their tourism and aviation industries, heavily reliant on international travel, have been badly hit by the pandemic. Singapore's Transport Minister Ong Ye Kung said Hong Kong is "a very safe region" now, with few new Covid cases detected daily. However, infections in Singapore have been climbing, he added. Ong said he's spoken with Edward Yau, Hong Kong's secretary for commerce and economic development, about the Covid situation in Singapore. Both sides will make a decision...
    New polling shows that the public is more likely to call illegal immigration rather than the COVID-19 pandemic a “very big problem." Almost half, or 48%, now view illegal immigration as a “very big problem,” while 47% view the coronavirus pandemic the same way. The numbers reflect a large change from June, when only 28% viewed illegal immigration as a “very big problem,” compared to 58% who felt that way about the coronavirus, according to numbers for Pew Research. The numbers come as the Biden administration has struggled to deal with a surge in illegal border crossings since Inauguration Day, with the Department of Homeland Security now estimating that about 500,000 to 800,000 family groups will attempt to make the crossing in fiscal 2021. Border officials estimated that a record high of over 17,000 unaccompanied minors attempted to cross the border in March alone. Meanwhile, some states have begun to ease or even completely eliminate pandemic restrictions as cases and hospitalizations fall and the vaccines see wider distribution.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Sunday he doubts that the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine is halted entirely. Last week the U.S. called for a pause in J&J vaccine distribution over a reported six cases of serious blood clots out of the millions of people who have gotten the one-dose coronavirus vaccine. On Meet the Press, Chuck Todd started off by asking Fauci if Americans will “know something more definitive” by Friday, when the advisory committee meets. Fauci said he believes by Friday “we’ll know which way we’re going on this,” and added, “Hopefully we’ll get back on track.” He defended the pause and said “hopefully it’ll be a quite temporary pause.” At one point Todd asked Fauci, “What’s more likely: that we will still use the Johnson & Johnson vaccine with some restrictions, or is it very possible we don’t use it at all?” Fauci said he couldn’t give a definitive answer, but told Todd his estimate is that “we will continue to use it in some form.” “I doubt very seriously if they just cancel it. I don’t...

    (CNN)President Joe Biden's first two and a half months in office have been far better received than former President Donald Trump's. Biden's been able to maintain an approval rating north of 50%; something Trump never did. Yet, a look at the data also reveals that Biden's Democratic Party has likely not picked up any support since the election. If historical trends hold, Democrats are likely going to face a rough political environment in the midterms. One of the best ways to judge the political environment is through the generic congressional ballot. The generic ballot asks respondents some form of the following question: "If the elections for Congress were held today, would you vote for the Democratic or Republican Party?" Democrats are ahead on that measure by about 4 points in the average poll taken since the beginning of Biden's administration. That lead is about the same as the final margin in the 2020 presidential race (Biden +4.5 points) and the 2020 House popular vote (Democrats +3.1 points). This tends to line up with what we have seen in terms of...
    On Thursday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that the next bill passed through budget reconciliation is “likely” to be a “very climate-oriented” infrastructure bill. Schumer said, “Well, it’s — we haven’t firmly decided, but it looks, it’s likely to be the Biden plan, which is called Build Back Better, which combines a bunch of things. Number one, dramatic increase in infrastructure, both the traditional infrastructure, but also green infrastructure. It’s very climate-oriented.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
                        According to a Tennessee Star poll of 1001 likely Republican primary voters in Tennessee conducted by Triton Research from March 5 to March 10, Gov. Bill Lee (R) is fairly popular, but many of his policies are not. Lee has a 69.9 percent favorability rate among those likely voters. That number is 20 points shy of former president Donald J. Trump’s 89.7 percent favorability – the highest ever for the forty fifth president in a Star poll – but still relatively high. However, respondents to the poll are unhappy with some of Lee’s policy decisions. For example, the poll showed that 20.1 percent of likely Republican voters strongly support Lee’s COVID-19 restrictions, which included business closure mandates and restrictions on religious activities. But 26.1 percent said they strongly oppose those restrictions. Twenty-six percent of respondents somewhat support the measures, while 21,9 percent somewhat oppose them. Lee’s numbers were worse when it came to refugee resettlement, which Trump curbed during his administration. Some states like Texas stopped accepting refugees altogether, while...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis police are investigating a Thursday morning crash where a motorist lost control and struck a building, seriously injuring three people in the vehicle.

    A worker walks past snow-covered pipework in the yard at the Gazprom PJSC Slavyanskaya compressor station on Thursday, Jan. 28, 2021.Andrey Rudakov | Bloomberg | Getty Images LONDON — A simmering geopolitical dispute over an undersea pipeline that would bring gas from Russia to Germany is widely expected to intensify in the coming weeks, with pressure building on President Joe Biden to do more to halt the nearly-complete project. If finished, the 1,230-kilometer (764-mile) Nord Stream 2 pipeline will become one of the longest offshore gas pipelines in the world. It is designed to deliver Russian gas directly to Germany under the Baltic Sea, bypassing Ukraine. Alongside several European countries, the U.S. opposes the pipeline, calling it a "bad deal" for European energy security. Critics also argue the pipeline is not compatible with European climate goals and will most likely strengthen Russian President Vladimir Putin's economic and political influence over the region. Led by Russia's Gazprom, the state-owned gas giant has claimed Nord Stream 2 is "particularly important" at a time when Europe sees a decline in domestic gas...
    DR Anthony Fauci said that young kids will "likely" have to wait until 2022 to get the Covid vaccine, but high schoolers could get the jab in fall. Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, made the predictions during a "Meet the Press" interview on Sunday. 4Dr Fauci said that high school students could start getting the Covid vaccine in the fallCredit: NBC News 4So far, the FDA has granted emergency approval for three vaccinesCredit: AFP or licensors The news comes after a third Covid vaccine, this one from Johnson & Johnson, was granted emergency approval by the FDA on Saturday. As of now, both the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are approved only for people over the age of 18. The Pfizer vaccine is approved only for people over the age of 16. "If we project realistically, when we will be able to get enough data to be able to say that elementary school children will be able to be vaccinated, I would think that would be, at the earliest, the end of the year, and very likely...
    For the moment, none of the three vaccines authorized in the United States (Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna, Johnson & amp; Johnson) can be administered to under 16s. LAmerican children under the age of 12 will “very likely” be vaccinated in early 2022, said immunologist Anthony Fauci, White House adviser, on Sunday. Immunization of children is a fundamental topic in the United States, as it could ease the burden on millions of parents whose children are still in distance education. The situations are very diverse according to the States and the nature of the schools (public, private, religious), and a standoff between authorities and teachers around the reopening of establishments. Dr. Fauci told NBC that some companies have already started studies to “gradually” reduce this age, working in increments: “You don’t want to go from 12 years to six months all at once, you start. by going down from 12 years to 9 years, then from 9 years to six, six to two years … ”. Given the progress of these studies, the immunologist, respected by many Americans,...
    White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said Thursday that it's "very likely" that family members who have been vaccinated against coronavirus can safely hug each other.  The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director explained that what vaccinated individuals can safely do with family members and in a public setting differ greatly.  FAUCI WARNED OF 'UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES' OF 'DRACONIAN' QUARANTINES DURING 2014 EBOLA OUTBREAK If an individual is vaccinated and with another person who is vaccinated, the things they can do are "much, much more liberal in the sense of pulling back on stringent public health measures," Fauci said during an interview on MSBNC with host Andrea Mitchell.

    Larry King Fans Honor Late Talk Show Legend By Sharing Their Favorite Interview Moments Billionaire investor: Enjoy the bull market while it lasts Report: Texans very likely to interview Leslie Frazier for second time The Texans’ coaching search has brought the most twists and turns of this cycle, but the team might be in the homestretch in its hiring process. They are at the second-interview stage. © Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports Could Leslie Frazier become Houston's next head coach? Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier is “very likely” to meet with the Texans again next week, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. The parties met shortly after Buffalo’s divisional-round win over Baltimore, and Cal McNair came away from that summit impressed with the veteran coordinator and former Vikings HC’s leadership acumen, per JLC. Frazier has not been a head coach since the Vikings fired him following the 2013 season. He has spent the past four seasons as Buffalo’s DC, overseeing one of the league’s best defenses in that span. The Texans cannot hire Frazier until the Bills’ season ends. They...
