    TERRIFYING new details have emerged after a second brutal attack by a white shark in California. Director of the Shark Lab at CSU Long Beach, Dr. Chris Lowe said it is possible that the last two attacks were done by the same shark. 415ft shark brutally attacked swimmer, 62, only yards from US beach, Pacific Grove, California.Credit: Natividad Hospital 4Shark encounters in New York, Florida and California have skyrocketed this summerCredit: Getty 4A shark chomped on a swimmer's paddle board off Lovers Point Beach in Pacific GroveCredit: Courtesy Sandra Edwards/KSBW While talking to CBS News, he said, "it is very likely based on the size of the punctures on the board that it is a great white, and a large one." "Very similar to the size of the one who might have bit the person in June, however, we don't know for sure if it's the same shark or not." The latest shark encounter happened on Wednesday afternoon off Lovers Point Beach in Pacific Grove, California. Witnesses told KSBW that a man and his dog were paddleboarding off the coast when a shark...
    Right-wing commentator Steven Crowder is calling for Republicans to raid Democrats, after the FBI executed a search warrant on former President Donald Trump. The search, conducted on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residency had agents searching for “classified documents” that may have been taken from the White House. On Monday night, Crowder took to Twitter to declare war on those responsible for the raid. “Tomorrow is war. Sleep well,” he said. Tomorrow is war. Sleep well. — Steven Crowder (@scrowder) August 9, 2022 In a clip circulating Twitter via Jason Campbell, on the Tuesday episode of Louder with Crowder, Crowder expressed the need for retaliation after numerous instances of FBI overreach: Hey liberals, you think they’re not gonna come for you? And by the way, I don’t think that we should be above the fray. If a Republican gets in investigate everybody, raid everybody, use all of it. I don’t care if we become Nicaragua at this point, you’ve already run the bell. You can’t unring it, buttercup! Crowder cited FBI overreach regarding Attorney General Merrick Garland’s request for the FBI to...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) – Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said the Oakland Athletics need to quickly reach a binding agreement for a new ballpark and that relocation could be considered if a deal isn’t struck for a facility in the Bay Area. “I was at the Coliseum myself recently,” he told the Baseball Writers’ Association of America on Tuesday before the All-Star Game. “The condition of the Coliseum is a really serious problem for us. I’ve said it, this is not news. It is not a major league-quality facility at this point.” READ MORE: 1st Monkeypox Cases Now Identified In Solano, Stanislaus CountiesOakland Mayor Libby Schaaf is pushing for approval of a waterfront ballpark at Howard Terminal.

    President Joe Biden saw his approval rating slip among Democrats and people of color in the latest devastating poll from CNN and SSRS President Joe Biden's approval plummeted to 38 percent in a Monday poll that also suggested Americans have little confidence in the commander-in-chief's stewardship of the US economy.  A whopping 62 percent of respondents to the new CNN/SSRS survey said they disapprove of Biden's job in office so far - the highest so far since CNN began asking the question in March 2021.  Just a quarter of voters surveyed are happy with how the president has navigated inflation.  The poll was taken June 13 through July 13 and released on the heels of a devastating consumer price index report that showed the cost of goods increased 9.1 percent last month over the year prior. It was the biggest spike seen since 1981.  Americans' dissatisfaction appears to extend to the country as a whole - the CNN poll found that 79 percent of people believe things are going badly for the US, a level not seen since February 2009,...
    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Phillies slugger Bryce Harper says “I will be back at some point” to play this season but won’t put a timetable on when he can return from his broken left thumb. Harper was injured last month when he was hit by a 97 mph pitch from San Diego Padres left-hander Blake Snell. The 2021 NL MVP had three pins put in his thumb during surgery that will be there for three weeks. He is in a cast and unable to throw. The 29-year-old Harper is hitting .318 with 15 home runs, 48 RBIs and a .985 OPS “I don’t want to give anybody a timetable because I don’t know,” Harper said before the Phillies played Washington on Tuesday night. “If I knew a specific date that I’d be back, I’d tell you. I just don’t think it’s fair to anybody. I’ll be back when I’m ready to go.” Harper checked his swing as the pitch rode inside and high toward his shoulder before hitting him on the outside of the left hand in the fourth inning. He...
    President Joe Biden is reportedly 'frustrated' with how his administration is running and being perceived, according to an article citing more than two dozen Democrats and officials President Joe Biden is reportedly 'frustrated' at how his White House is being run less than two years into his administration, with the commander-in-chief apparently weary of the steady 'clean-up campaign' his aides have instituted for his off-the-cuff comments and 'twisted' by approval ratings lower than Donald Trump's. The president was also not told about the current baby formula shortage until just this month, despite economics experts claiming it had been building up to the crisis point for a long time, according to an extensive new NBC News report published on Tuesday. It's the latest supply crisis that Republicans and other Biden critics have been knocking him over for not being quicker to act. It also suggests the Biden administration is headed for yet another staff shake-up, with Chief of Staff Ron Klain - known for putting up a vociferous defense of his boss on Twitter - expected to leave after November's midterm elections....
    Adele devastated fans earlier this year when she canceled her highly-anticipated Las Vegas residency just 24 hours before she was set to hit the stage at Caesar's Palace. And four months later, Adele and her team have yet to provide ticket-holders with an update on the postponed shows - despite the singer vowing to reschedule the dates for sometime this year. With frustrations mounting, fans are using social media to call out Adele for seemingly leaving them in the dark, with many calling the months-long delay 'bogus' and 'diva-like.'

    Alabama officials have discovered the abandoned car of a female prison official who broke the department's policy when she picked up a capital murder suspect for a mental health evaluation - which her co-workers later discovered was never scheduled. In a news conference Saturday night, Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton announced that Vicky White's official vehicle, a 2013 Ford Taurus patrol car, was spotted in a shopping center parking lot at around 11am Friday. Just about an hour and a half earlier, Singleton said, Vicky, an assistant director of corrections at the department, broke protocol when she picked up Casey Cole White, 38, from a detention center without other deputies present.  She had her 9mm handgun on her at the time, and told others she was due to take Casey White - who is not related to her - to a mental health evaluation before a scheduled court hearing. There no such evaluation scheduled that day, however. Casey was facing the death penalty for the October 2015 murder of Connie Ridgeway, 58, in her home in Rogersville, Alabama.   But under the...
    MANDEL NGAN/AFP via Getty Images President Joe Biden’s polling troubles continued to worsen during the fifth quarter of his presidency, making him the second most unpopular leader at this point in his presidency in the modern era – according to the most recent Gallup data. Gallup’s Jefferey Jones noted Friday that Biden’s 41.3 percent average approval from January 20 to April 19 is slightly below his fourth-quarter average of 41.7 percent. “Biden enjoyed majority approval ratings during his first two quarters in office,” Jones explains. “A trying late summer and early fall 2021, marked by a surge in new coronavirus cases, the troubled U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and rapidly increasing gas prices and inflation, led to a decline in Biden’s public support.” Many pundits and observers pinpoint Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, which played out over the course of many days across American televisions screens, as the turning point in Biden’s relationship with the pubic. “From a historical perspective, Biden’s fifth quarter average is lower than that of any prior elected president, except Donald Trump,” Jones explains. “Trump averaged 39.1%...
    CNN polling expert Harry Enten revealed that President Joe Biden’s average approval is now lower than former President Donald Trump’s at the same point in their respective presidencies. On Friday morning’s edition of CNN’s New Day, Mr. Enten joined anchor John Berman to discuss President Biden’s latest polling numbers, which Enten assessed as “indicative of a president who is in a lot of trouble”: MR. BERMAN: These numbers are really tough. MR. ENTEN: You know, John, I don’t like just looking at one poll. I like looking at multiple polls and there were four different polls released this week. Quinnipiac, we had a Hart Public Opinion Strategies poll that’s with NBC or CNBC, Ipsos Reuters, CBS News, YouGov. I want you to look, these numbers kind of differ. They range from the low 30s to the low 40s. Low 40s is not good, either. But what’s key is the lowest are tied for the low for the pollster, lowest here, lowest here. This is one point off the lowest, lowest here. And when you have three or four pollsters showing...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The day after Congressman Ted Deutch announced he would not run for re-election and would instead become the CEO of the American Jewish Committee, he said his decision “isn’t about fleeing Congress or running away from Congress, this is really an opportunity to run to something that is unique.” “This is not something that I had planned,” Deutch told CBS Miami during an interview Tuesday morning. “I was approached by AJC, which is a global Jewish advocacy organization that fights anti-Semitism and defends Israel’s rightful place in the world. And in conversations with them, I realized that with the global platform that they have with offices all around the world, that I’d be able to work full time on issues that I’m really passionate about and I think may be able in some ways to have an even greater impact on these issues than I’ve had as a member of Congress.

    President Joe Biden's approval number has dropped to the same low as former President Donald Trump's at the same point in their presidencies.  A year and a month into his tenure, FiveThirtyEight.com has Biden's approval rating average sitting at 41.6 per cent, while Trump's was 41.1 per cent during this week in February in 2018.    Trump's approval average lingered between the high 30s and low 40s throughout his one term. Biden, on the other hand, started out at 55 per cent approval, and never hit that number again since.  Trump dragged down the prospects for members of his party, with Democrats able to pick up 40 House seats in the 2018 midterm elections, gaining back the majority.  Republicans look poised to do the same under Biden, with a recent Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee document warning the party has 'alarming credibility' problems - with 66 per cent of swing voters in battleground states they have gone 'too far' on COVID.  President Joe Biden's approval number has dropped to the same low as former President Donald Trump's at the same point in their...
    Fox News contributor Michael Goodwin told "The Brian Kilmeade Show" Monday that the Democrats’ "hypocrisy" on COVID mandates has become "unbearable." On Sunday, a photo went viral of Democrat Stacey Abrams posing maskless with a group of masked schoolchildren despite a mandate being in place.  DR. OZ: COVID LOCKDOWN STUDY SHOULD ANGER AMERICANS MICHAEL GOODWIN: The hypocrisy is unbearable at this point. If people really I mean, let's just think about what the hypocrisy is telling us. On one hand, these people are preaching the necessity of masks. That masks keep you safe. They keep other people safe. But when they don't practice it, then does that not tell us they don't believe it? It's the same with all the Gulfstream crowd that talks about global warming. If they really believed that flying that [private jet] was going to contribute to global warming and maybe kill millions of people and kill the Earth, would they still do it? No, you have to believe they’d be murderous to do it, so they just don't believe in it. I draw the same...
    Former President Donald Trump’s job approval was slightly higher than President Joe Biden’s at the same point in his presidency, according to the average of ratings charted by RealClearPolitics (RCP). The RCP average for Trump shows on February 3 of his second year in office that he had a slightly better approval rating than Biden has now. For the first time ever, Trump’s historical average job approval is above Biden’s by .3 percent. On this date in 2018, 41.9 percent approved of Trump and 54.2 percent disapproved: RealClearPolitics RCP Poll Average President Trump Job Approval Biden’s average currently stands at 41.6 approval and 53.9 disapproval: RealClearPolitics RCP Poll Average President Biden Job Approval RCP creates their average numbers by using polls from multiple polling sources, such as Rasmussen Reports, Economist/YouGov, Politico/Morning Consult, and Reuters/Ipsos.

Under Biden, the country has witnessed an ongoing supply-chain crisis, a record-high inflation rate that has grown from a mere 1.4 percent when he...
    DEAR ABBY: Several years ago, my adult niece, with whom I am very close, found herself in some legal difficulties and needed an attorney. Jeanne Phillips  At the time, due to some medical issues, she wasn’t working and could not afford the attorney’s retainer, so I offered to lend her the money. I told her she could repay me once she began working again. Nine months later she sent me a check for $500 and, two months after that, another one for $500. The retainer was $2,600. My niece has been steadily employed for the last two years, yet I have received no further payment. I regret that I didn’t set up a formal repayment plan, but I never dreamed she’d default on the loan.

    Center for Vaccine Development director Dr. Peter Hotez said Monday on “At This Hour” that it made “no sense” to lift mask mandates for schools right now. Bolduan asked, “What do you think about lifting school mask mandates right now?” Hotez said, “Well, look, this is the most highly transmissible variant we’ve seen. We’ve got something on the order of measles, and therefore, if you start lifting mask mandates now, you’re basically condemning all the kids to get infected with Omicron and — and having to live with those consequences, which means some kids have to be hospitalized or possibly worse. So it makes no sense to lift mask mandates at this point. It makes every bit of sense to maximize vaccinations because we know that’s having a huge impact, especially the boosters, on reducing hospitalizations reducing emergency room visits by quite a bit. So if you’ve only gotten two doses of the vaccine, you need that third dose to stay out of the hospital and the emergency room, point one, and we need to max out vaccinating our kids, and...
    President Joe Biden on Tuesday issued his most explicit call yet for the Senate to bypass its filibuster rule to pass voting rights bills, calling the move necessary "to defend our democracy" against Republican-led restrictive voting laws pushed around the country. "Today, I'm making it clear, in order to protect our democracy, I support changing the Senate rules whichever way they need to be changed to prevent a minority of senators from blocking action on voting rights," Biden said during a highly publicized speech in Atlanta. "When it comes to protecting majority rule in America, the majority should rule," he said. "This is the moment to decide to defend our elections and to defend our democracy." Biden's speech came as the Senate prepares to vote this week on two bills that would represent a sweeping update to the nation's federal voting rights laws.President Joe Biden speaks about voting rights legislation at the Atlanta University Center Consortium in Atlanta, Georgia on January 11, 2022.Jim Watson | AFP | Getty ImagesThe current legislation would expand early and absentee voting and make it...
    SAUL LOEB/AFP The GOP’s Twitter account is getting some predictable progressive push-back, after calling out President Joe Biden’s current visit to his home in Delaware. “Joe Biden has now been to Delaware 31 times since he took office,” the GOP account read. “Americans are struggling to make ends meet and he is on vacation.” Joe Biden has now been to Delaware 31 times since he took office. Americans are struggling to make ends meet and he is on vacation. — GOP (@GOP) December 31, 2021 Hitting a sitting president for taking time off is a time-honored tradition. But the holiday week between Christmas and New Year’s Day (sometimes referred to as the “taint” of the calendar year) is not a week that typically any work gets done. Progressive accounts on Twitter took immediate issue with the partisan hit on the current president, noting how former President Donald Trump visited his properties more often, also noting that a trip to Delaware to his home, is a far shorter trip. According to USA Today, Trump visited his properties 38...
    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) highlighted the presence of “yellow people” and other people of color at Turning Point USA’s “AmericaFest” rally on Sunday. “When I walked in yesterday, I was like, what kind of people come here?” Greene said. “So I’m walking around and seeing some good people, and I see white people, Black people, brown people, yellow people.” “And then there’s talk of freedom and loving America, and conservative principles, some crazy people in here were talking about how much this guy named Jesus,” Greene continued, prompting the crowd to cheer. “And I heard — someone I really like — I think I heard that a lot of people here like a guy named Donald J.

    U.S. President Joe Biden delivers remarks on the November jobs report at the White House in Washington, U.S., December 3, 2021.Kevin Lamarque | Reuters The Labor Department's consumer inflation report showed that prices are still jumping. But as hot as 6.8% year over year inflation is, Friday's consumer price index report is probably the best the Biden administration could have hoped for at this point.  While virtually every economist expects inflation to stay high for the foreseeable future, some on Wall Street had worried before Friday's data release that inflation could have leaped as high as 7% or more in November.  Some economists who spoke to CNBC suggested that the November report may show early signs that inflation could peak in the next few months.  Bank of America economist Alex Lin said that while it's time to stop calling inflation "transitory," a combination of factors lead him to believe that inflation could peak around March or April.  "It's our view is that the peak will probably be sometime around early next year, probably the first quarter," Lin said. "And the...

    CNN’s Jim Acosta criticized the Supreme Court and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for creating a judicial body that does not represent the majority of Americans. Acosta argued that the Supreme Court differs from as the chyron put it, “the court of public opinion,” in part because former President Donald Trump appointed three conservative justices — despite losing the popular vote in the general election. Referring to the Mississippi abortion case currently before the Supreme Court, Acosta noted that “even though Americans have largely chosen Democrats for the presidency over the last three decades, a new, hard right Supreme Court appears poised to turn back the clock to the 1970s.” “It’s like Americans voted for the West Wing and instead got That ’70s Show,” he quipped. Acosta played a clip of Justice Sonia Sotomayor expressing concerns that the abortion case could taint the Court with a political “stench.” “Sotomayor is warning the credibility of the Supreme Court is on the line, making the point that the only reason why we are having this discussion about abortion rights is because the...
    As the number of Omicron variant cases continues to rise in the United States, President Joe Biden said on Friday that he remains opposed to implementing vaccine requirements for domestic air travel, but is leaving the door open to changing his mind. Biden said he didn’t think vaccine requirements for air travel within the country were necessary “at this point.” “I continue to rely on the scientists… right now, they’re saying no,” he said. While Biden admitted the fight against the pandemic has dragged on, he said “we’ve got to beat it back before we shut it down.” “The idea that you can build a wall around America to keep any COVID from around the world out is not there,” Biden said, sounding fairly hoarse from a cold he said he got from his young grandson. The address was originally intended to address Labor Department statistics that were released on Friday indicating that the American economy added just 210,000 last month. Economists had expected north of 570,000 new jobs, following a revised October total of nearly 550,000. “Our economy...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — On the heels of Black Friday comes Small Business Saturday, a day when shoppers are asked to shop local and support local. Small businesses were some of the hardest hit during the COVID-19 pandemic — resulting in the closure of roughly 200,000 of them nationwide during the first year of the pandemic alone.

    China Box Office: ‘No Time to Die’ Opens to $28M Amid COVID-19 Cinema Shutdowns TIAA-CREF Real Estate Securities Rides High on a Hot Market Shaping up the NFL’s potential trade deadline commodities last week, two things became apparent when you spoke to the general managers that will be manning the phones: Nobody is all that interested in taking on someone else’s salary cap dump; and overvalued “just a name” players really don’t have a market to speak of. We should have learned that in early October when the Dallas Cowboys tried in vain to get anything of value for linebacker Jaylon Smith. It became apparent very quickly that teams didn’t want to be responsible for the one-time Pro Bowler’s remaining salary, leaving Dallas to cut him purely for future cap maneuvering. And we’re going to learn it again by Tuesday, with a deadline that is likely going to be far quieter than anyone expects. Particularly as it pertains to players whose trade availability amounts to little more than a salary dump at this point. You can officially count the...
    MSNBC’s Joy Reid shredded Tucker Carlson and Fox News on Thursday night after Carlson previewed a ludicrous multipart series he filmed for FOX Nation. On Wednesday, Carlson showed the trailer for “Patriot Purge,” which looks to be a deranged fever dream about the January 6th attack on the Capitol. Reid played part of the trailer for her audience. “The domestic war on terror is here,” says a man’s voice. “It’s coming after half of the country.” “The left is hunting the right,” claims another person. “Sticking them in Guantanamo Bay, for American citizens, leaving them there to rot.” “False flags have happened in this country,” says another. “One of which may have been January 6th.” “False flag?” responded Reid. “He honestly seems to be pushing fascistic propaganda that January 6 was government plot to target conservatives. That is a lie, full stop. A lie. This special is going air on the network’s streaming platform. But he used the main Fox News platform to promote it.” Reid added that streaming online is “potentially more dangerous” because it might “go more viral...
    Meghan McCain said Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “MediaBuzz” that her family and the Trump family were in a “blood feud.” When asked about former President Donald Trump’s statement calling the former “View” co-host a “bully” and a “lowlife,” McCain said, “My first reaction is thanks for the publicity.” She continued, “He really has a way of helping people get publicity for their books. I also I think this is part of what my memoir is about. It’s about being a bad Republican at ‘The View,’ when just being a Republican in general means you’re the villain at ‘The View,’ and then it means me being a bad Republican in the Republican Party right now because I’m not a Trump supporter.

    Meghan McCain offered a dismissive reaction to Donald Trump when asked about the former president’s latest insulting comments about her and her family. McCain spoke Fox News’ Howard Kurtz for a MediaBuzz interview on Bad Republican, her new audio memoir where she dished on her negative relationship with her former co-hosts on The View. The memoir has drawn a great deal of publicity in recent days — particularly after Trump saw fit to weigh in by trashing McCain’s family while calling the former View co-host a “bully” and a “lowlife.” Kurtz asked McCain for her thoughts, and she sarcastically responded by telling Trump “thanks for the publicity.” He really has a way of helping people get publicity for their books. I think this part of what my memoir is about.

    Alex Wong/Getty Images CNN has published an analysis claiming that President Joe Biden has spent more days on “personal travel” than former President Donald Trump had at this point in his presidency. Reporters from multiple news outlets have made an issue of President Biden’s travel to his homes in Delaware, and CNN’s Betsy Klein has now done an analysis of Biden’s public schedule — entitled “Biden’s early-presidency getaways so far outpace Trump’s” — that finds that in his first 276 days in office, he has spent all or part of 108 days at his Delaware homes, or at Camp David. Klein compares Biden’s travel unfavorably with Trump’s, writing “That puts Biden ahead of the pace set by former President Donald Trump, who had spent less time at his Florida and New Jersey getaways at the same point in his presidency than Biden has spent in Delaware,” and noting “By comparison, Trump had spent all or part of 61 days at either his Mar-a-Lago or Bedminster properties in Florida and New Jersey, respectively, during the same period of time, plus all...

    President Biden's eroding poll numbers have been a major story line in the political world for nearly three months. And with the presidential approval rating a much watched indicator of how his party will perform in next year’s midterm elections – when the Democrats will fight to keep their razor-thin majorities in the House of Representatives and Senate – each drop in Biden’s numbers is likely to induce more anxiety in Democratic circles. The president currently stands at 43% approval and 51% disapproval in an average of the latest national polls compiled by Real Clear Politics. While that’s nothing for Biden to brag about, it’s better than his predecessor in the White House.

    Photo by Leon Neal/Getty Images New York City mayor Bill de Blasio tabbed a homeless shelter operator to evict Donald Trump from his golf course and the former president is predictably enraged. In 2012, Trump reached a 20-year deal to build and operate the links at Ferry Point, a Jack Nicklaus-designed public golf course in the Bronx. At the time, Michael Bloomberg was serving as New York City Mayor. Nine years into the partnership, de Blasio seeks to dump Trump in favor of a new operator. NEW! President Donald J.

    Massive California oil spill was reported Friday. But nobody told the millions who went to the beaches Huntington Beach oil spill could be worse than initially believed, new numbers show There are a handful of things that, over the last few years, had become supremely annoying about NBA basketball, one of which was the precipitous uptick in 3-point shooters drawing phantom fouls by throwing themselves into closing -- or even oftentimes stationary -- defenders.  © Provided by CBS Sports Thank the basketball gods the league decided to stop rewarding these bailout plays. This season, non-basketball moves/unnatural shooting motions used to draw contact will not be whistled as defensive fouls, and if the contact initiated by the shooter is beyond marginal, a foul will actually be called on the offensive player, as should've been the case long ago.  Below is a clip of Stephen Curry still trying to play by the old rules in the Warriors' preseason opener against the Blazers on Monday, throwing himself forward in such an unnatural manner that he has to heave the ball with his...

The 50-year-old actress spoke about changing the perception around stage 4 cancers on Tuesday during a virtual panel for her upcoming Lifetime movie List of a Lifetime, which centers around a woman who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. "I feel like I have a responsibility in my more public life, which I separate from my acting life ... to talk about cancer and perhaps educate people more and let people know that people with stage 4 are very much alive and very active," she told reporters. "My husband says that you would never know that I have cancer," added Doherty, who has been married to photographer Kurt Iswarienko since 2011. "I never really complain. I don't really talk about it. It's part of life at this point." © Provided by People Vivien Killilea/WireImage RELATED: Shannen Doherty...
    Screenshot / Scott Olson, Getty For the first time since taking office, President Joe Biden’s disapproval is higher than his approval in both major polling averages, but he’s still considerably more popular than former President Donald Trump was at the same time in his term. After many months of steady approval in the mid-50s, the president’s approval rating fell below 50 percent in mid-August in FiveThirtyEight’s average of polls, and in the RealClearPolitics average as well. But the president’s approval was still higher than his disapproval in both averages. But a few weeks, one massive airlift,  and one deadly terrorist attack later, Biden’s disapproval now eclipses his approval in both averages. In the 538 average, Biden has a slim minus .8 net approval, with 47.4 percent disapproval vs. 46.6 percent approval. In the RCP average, Biden’s net approval is more negative at minus 3.4 percent, with 49.2 percent disapproval versus 45.8 percent approval. 538, RCP The FiveThirtyEight average uses a more complicated formula that weights results based on things like the pollster ratings and sample sizes, which produces a much more stable average...
    The Los Angeles Angels are getting closer to shutting down Mike Trout for the season after his rehab from a calf injury stalled again. Mike Trout’s injury rehab is apparently never going to end. Just when it looked like the Angels outfielder was making progress towards a potential return, participating in on-field workouts in Detroit, he’s suffered another setback. On Monday, Angels manager Joe Maddon revealed Trout “came up sore” after recent workouts, per Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.Mike Trout injury update: Angels star “still sore”The manager was candid about the possibility of Trout being shut down. “We’re probably getting closer to having to say something like that, but he still wants to continue the fight and we’re going to honor his wishes,” Maddon said. Maddon insists he’ll defer to Trout and how he feels about his injured calf. “This is truly a time you listen to the athlete, listen to his body and try to make your best decision,” he said. “There’s got to be that moment where we have to start being realistic about it and...
    Wednesday, FNC host Tucker Carlson warned forcing children to wear masks because of COVID-19 protocol and indoctrination in academia was taking education in America to an undesirable place. The Fox News personality said these new trends “encouraged tribalism” and “exacerbating the worst instincts in people.” Transcript as follows: CARLSON: It is mid-August, summer is almost over, amazingly enough. Kids are going to resume their education, not just in this country, but around the world. In Ireland, as kids begin to return to school recently, authorities there faced a choice. Now, the most obvious course would be to blindly accept guidance from self-described public health experts in the United States, that’s what many countries have done, is they’ve sought to come up with a COVID policy. And following the United States would mean, among other things, forcing children as young as two to wear moist paper burqas for eight hours a day in the classroom. The other option would be to follow the science and the Irish chose that course. The Irish commissioned their own research on masks and here’s what...

    The boldness of the Philadelphia 76ers in getting everything they want from the Ben Simmons trade has reached the West Coast after talks with the Golden State Warriors. Has Philadelphia been going through something? Because that’s the only viable answer for what we are about to go through in this wild ride of an article. As we know, the 2021 NBA Draft is underway, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that Ben Simmons is looking elsewhere from the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers and Simmons share common ground in wanting a change of scenery, but not without having an absolutely abysmal conversation with the Golden State Warriors first. Here’s how this umpteenth negotiation unsuccessfully went down.The Sixers want Simmons for the Warriors’ Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman and four first-round draft picksWhat does that say???

    Amid the protests in Cuba, conservative pundit Ben Shapiro is likening Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to “Hannibal Lecter” and saying that “he is just wearing around” President “Joe Biden’s not particularly sentient face at this point.” “Shocking development that this administration has gotten as radical as it did,” said Shapiro sarcastically on his weekday podcast on Wednesday. “I mean, someone’s warning about it, someone’s warning that this is Bernie Sanders with Joe Biden’s face on it. That basically, this administration was Bernie Sanders is Hannibal Lecter and he is just wearing around Joe Biden’s not particularly sentient face at this point.” The conservative commentator chided the administration for, in his view, not sufficiently backing the Cuban protesters. “What sort of solid support has come from this administration for the Cuban dissenters so far. So far as I can see, none by the way,” he said. “By the way, just your update on Cuba, the Cuban forces are now arresting and unpersoning pretty much all of the dissenters who have been out in the streets.” Shapiro went on to denounce the...
    Democrats should demand that President Joe Biden take the same cognitive test that was passed by his predecessor, Donald Trump’s former White House physician says. House Rep. Ronny Jackson, a Republican from Texas who was elected to Congress after serving as Trump's top White House doctor, thinks that Biden should be administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) to test for memory impairment, dementia, and other possible maladies. Biden, who is known for misspeaking and making verbal gaffes, has had his cognitive fitness questioned after mixing up the names of aides and colleagues while seeming to forget job titles and other details. During a news conference at last month's G7 summit meeting in the United Kingdom, Biden appeared to mix up Syria and Libya three times. House Rep. Ronny Jackson, a Republican from Texas who was elected to Congress after serving as former President Donald Trump's top White House doctor, thinks that President Biden should be administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) to test for memory impairment, dementia, and other possible maladies.

    ST. PAUL (WCCO) — More than 200 people have died on Minnesota roads this year, the earliest point in the year that the state has reached this marker since 2009, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety said. As people gear up to travel over the holiday weekend, Sgt. Jesse Grabow, who works in Northwestern Minnesota, said the summer months are often the most dangerous. The Fourth of July weekend is one of the worst for DWIs, second only to St. Patrick’s Day.

    National Guard Lt. Col. and Green Beret Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) — who prompted Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley’s defense of critical race theory during a hearing this week — pushed back against the idea that learning critical race theory is akin to learning about “history” and that opposing it makes one racist. Waltz had queried Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin during the hearing on why there was a lecture at West Point on “Understanding Whiteness and White Rage.” While Austin acknowledged that should not have happened, Milley was invited to respond to Waltz by a Democrat congresswoman, saying he thought it was important to study critical race theory to understand “white rage,” tying it to the January 6 Capitol riot. Waltz told CNN’s Brianna Keilar: Where I disagree with General Milley who commented later was, this isn’t some kind of history class. I have no problem with understanding our very checkered past with race and the atrocities that happened in the past. This was a seminar telling cadets how they should think and behave now....

For 20 years, every month Helena has been dependent on blood donations. She was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia, a red blood cell disorder. In her adult years, she was diagnosed with another blood disease.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — The last time the White Sox had the best record in the majors at this point of the season or later was in 2005.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — An old trope of the sports world always pops up when a player wins or gets nominated for a particular awards several times, wherein we all share a guffaw and utter the classic line, “They oughtta put his name on the award!” READ MORE: David Krejci Hit With $5,000 Fine For Slashing Mat Barzal In Bruins-Islanders Game 4 But. Well. There’s really no other way of saying it. They really ought to put Patrice Bergeron’s name on the Selke Trophy. The Boston Bruins captain is a finalist for the Frank J. Selke Trophy for the 10th consecutive year, the NHL announced over the weekend. That means that for 10 straight years, Bergeron has been among the top-three vote-getters for the award, which he’s won four times. The award, of course, is given to “the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game.” That’s not always the simplest aspect to judge, but Bergeron has been arguably the most consistent 200-foot player in the NHL for the past dozen or so years....
    Aaron Rodgers will more than likely remain with the Green Bay Packers despite weeks of speculation that the reigning NFL MVP might be traded over his growing discontent with the organization and general manager Brian Gutekunst, according to one report.  NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Tuesday on "The Pat McAfee Show" that the window for trading a player of Rodgers’ caliber has come and gone. PACKERS ‘WILL NOT’ TRADE AARON RODGERS, DO NOT BELIEVE QUARTERBACK IS COMMITTED TO NOT PLAYING: REPORT  "I don't feel like it's a very good chance he gets traded at all," Rapoport said. "If you were going to do it, again which I don't think they will, you would've done it before the draft just to make sure you were set. The most value for draft picks is when you're about to use them. If someone trades for a one in next year's draft, that's great but you're not going to see it for a full year so congratulations but there's not the instant gratification you get from doing a deal right before this draft." Rapoport...
