    The crown that King Charles is set to wear at next year's Coronation has been removed from the Tower of London in a top-secret operation before being resized, Buckingham Palace has revealed. The ultra-high security operation took place under the cover of darkness on Friday evening. The St Edward's Crown was transported under armed guard to a secret location where it will now be resized for King Charles's Coronation on Saturday 6 May in Westminster Abbey. Mark Appleby, of Mappin and Webb, who has been the Crown Jeweller since 2017, will spend the next few months working away to ensure the diamond-encrusted crown is big enough to fit the new King.  It is believed that several 'fittings' will be required to ensure it is a good fit.

    The White House is pushing back at a congressional effort to advance legislation that would provide rail workers with a week of sick leave – saying it threatens to imperil a deal that would avert a nationwide rail strike. President Biden wants Congress to deal with the matter immediately and deliver legislation that would avoid damaging rail strikes to his desk by Saturday.   White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Wednesday repeatedly argued against making fresh changes to the deal, which Biden helped negotiate before multiple rail unions rejected it, arguing it risked bringing on a costly strike. That came despite a group of senators led by Vermont's Bernie Sanders calling any deal that lacked the worker benefit 'absolutely unacceptable.' 'Of course he supports paid sick leave for all Americans, including rail workers. But he does not support any bill or amendment that will delay getting this bill to his desk by Saturday,' Jean-Pierre told reporters. 'He has been very clear on that.' President Biden 'does not support any bill or amendment that will delay getting this bill to his...
    Elon Musk declared “cancel culture needs to be canceled” on Wednesday in response to a CNBC segment on customers protesting Tesla since Musk’s Twitter takeover. “Cancel culture needs to be canceled!!” Musk tweeted in response to a clip of CNBC’s Joe Kernen and author Arthur Brooks discussing “Musk Derangement Syndrome.” Kernen referenced a segment involving actress Alyssa Milano on The View where the guest and hosts discussed alternatives to Tesla vehicles. Milano announced she’d given her Tesla back in protest of Musk. Kernen was quick to say he does not actually watch The View, joking he’d need to be strapped to a chair Clockwork Orange-style to suffer through the show. “I can’t. I couldn’t. I would never,” the host said. “Activists are trying to bully companies, trying to bully citizens, trying to basically bring all of us into their culture war” Atlantic contributor Brooks said in reaction to protests of Tesla over objections to Musk. Brooks called on companies to push back against such protests and activist employees. “93 percent of the country said they hate how divided we’ve become...
    At a recent post-election press conference, Gov. Tim Walz was asked what he meant by “fully funding” education. His answer surprised me. He said it meant making up the deficit that state government is supposed to be paying for special education. While it’s true that the state has neglected their duties in funding state-mandated special education costs, the governor misses the point on what most educators and the public would call “fully funding” education. Over the past decades, our state government has spent less and less on education, leaving schools to scramble for funding in the form of property taxes. Because of this pattern, inequity in public schools has skyrocketed, and overall funding has plummeted in nearly every district. According to North Star Policy Action (an independent research institute), even after accounting for inflation, per-pupil state funding for K-12 schools has decreased a full 20% from 2003 to 2022, and is on track to drop another 5% in the next two years. Add to this the drastic cuts in funding from the 1980s and ‘90s. This is the reason my wife, an...
    If anything has summed up the Ravens’ slow-going, late-snapping, barely-beating-the-play-clock offense this season, it might not be the delay-of-game penalty they took in the first quarter Sunday. It might be what came immediately afterward. After watching a flag turn second-and-goal at the Jaguars’ 10-yard line into second-and-goal at Jacksonville’s 15, the Ravens broke their huddle with about 10 seconds remaining. Coach John Harbaugh yelled from the sideline, “Hurry up,” with eight seconds remaining. The offensive line got set with three seconds remaining. Tight end Mark Andrews finished motioning over into a three-receiver bunch formation with one second remaining. Center Tyler Linderbaum snapped quarterback Lamar Jackson the ball with zero seconds remaining. The timing on the play, a 5-yard completion to Andrews, was so off that Jacksonville’s edge rushers were already 2 yards downfield by the time Devin Duvernay, the receiver in the bunch formation closest to the line of scrimmage, crossed the 15. Like Andrews and wideout Demarcus Robinson, the third player in the cluster of receivers to Jackson’s right, Duvernay looked surprised to see the ball snapped when it...
    EVERYONE above a certain age remembers the struggle of defrosting a freezer. An appliance expert detailed when this still needs to be done, and how to do it efficiently. 2TikTok user Renae explained why some freezers need to be defrosted and the best way to do itCredit: TikTok/@renduh TikTok user Renae, known to her followers as Renduh, shared the reason why freezers need to be defrosted, and how best to do it. The appliance expert explained that while some fridges and freezers have a self-defrosting system, others need to be manually defrosted. Renae explained: "Every time your freezer cools, it builds up frost. This is because the humidity in the atmosphere next to the evaporator freezes. Tiny droplets of humidity from the air, frozen." The TikToker detailed that if your machine is self-defrosting it will only require attention if parts are broken, the door is left open too long, or there's an air leak.

    The View co-host Joy Behar confronted Gov. Jared Polis (D-CO) on Colorado’s red flag law in light of the shooting that killed five people and wounded 18 others at Club Q, an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs on Saturday. The suspect, Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, went undetected by Colorado’s red flag law, which Polis signed in 2019. That law prohibits the possession, purchase or receiving of firearms by anybody who “poses a significant risk to self or others by having a firearm in his or her custody or control,” according to the Colorado General Assembly. “Just last year this suspect was arrested for allegedly making a bomb threat, but for some reason, that didn’t trigger Colorado’s red flag law, which you signed in 2019,” said Behar during Tuesday’s episode of The View. “How is that possible? Why didn’t authorities take his weapons away? If an incident like this didn’t trigger the law, what is going to trigger the law? Don’t you think this needs to be evaluated again, sir?” Polis responded that all the facts about the shooting aren’t yet...
    Lima noted that she does not believe her post "suggests that using incorrect pronouns should be met with violence." Nicole Solas, a senior fellow with the Independent Women's Forum, disagreed and told Fox News Digital, "If you believe you're under threat of violence then to 'respond accordingly' means you act in self-defense, which is a physical and often violent action taken to protect yourself." "Her public call for students to 'respond accordingly' to non-existent violence is her own tacit call to violence against those who oppose her radical ideology," Solas continued. "She creates a hostile, paranoid school environment where violence is now more likely to happen thanks to her hysterical message that danger lurks around every pronoun." Lima previously faced a failed recall effort in 2021 launched by the Gaspee Project, a Rhode Island-based nonprofit. The group accused Lima of pushing "antiracist" policies and a "Marxist" agenda. The Gaspee Project stated that the school board official was "openly seeking to indoctrinate students with divisive race and gender theories as well as anti-police propaganda." Lima stated that the organization targeted...
    Bravo Could the RHOBH cast be getting a major shakeup? A “Real Housewives” star weighed in on the current state of affairs among the Beverly Hills franchise after season 12 ended on a tense note.

    Mike Pence said only Donald Trump could answer why the then-president wasn't making phone calls to security officials during the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol. The former vice president told ABC's David Muir that he was at the Capitol during that time so he couldn't say what Trump, who was at the White House, was doing.  'I was at the Capitol. I wasn't at the White House,' Pence said in the interview with ABC News. 'I can't account for what the president was doing that day. I was at a loading dock in the Capitol where a riot was taking place.' Pence, 63, was on Capitol Hill in his ceremonial role of overseeing the electoral college count to certify the 2020 presidential electionon January 6th, 2021. When rioters entered the Capitol, Secret Service agents removed Pence from the Senate floor. He was eventually taken to a loading dock in one of the garages.  Muir noted that, on that day, Pence called the chairman of the joint chief of staff, the head of Capitol Police and several other officials as Trump's MAGA...
    THE Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have clawed their way back into playoff contention, but they have a long way to go.

    GP: JPMorgan officeS3studio | Getty Images News | Getty Images SINGAPORE — Banks have to prioritize consumer protection as they embark on digital asset experiments, said Umar Farooq, chief executive officer of JPMorgan's blockchain unit Onyx. Many blockchain projects and other crypto protocols have the potential to make financial services more efficient, accessible and affordable. But without proper precautions, they could also expose customers to cybersecurity risks. In recent months, many crypto investors have been struck by hacks and scams. For example, crypto exchange Binance was hit by a $570 million hack in October and Deribit lost $28 million in a hot wallet hack this month. "What a bank needs to do from a regulatory point of view and customer's point of view is that we need to protect our customers. We cannot lose their money," Farooq said during a panel at the Singapore Fintech Festival 2022 on Wedneday. "I do think you need some sort of identity solution or know-your-customer solution which verifies who the human being that is interacting is and what they are allowed to do. Because...
    Joseph Hart, 37, of Greenville, Rhode Island was arrested after rushing Republican New Hampshire Senate candidate Don Bolduc and allegedly trying to punch him Police arrested a Rhode Island man for attempting to assault Republican New Hampshire Senate candidate Don Bolduc ahead of his debate with incumbent Democratic Senator Maggie Hassan on Wednesday. The Goffstown Police Department identified Joseph Hart, 37, of Greenville, Rhode Island as the man arrested and facing charges for criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. The arrest preceded the third and final New Hampshire Senate debate between Bolduc and Hassaon Wednesday evening at St. Anselm College. Buldoc's campaign is calling for a decrease in the temperature of the political climate. A statement on the incident from the campaign claims the man tried to hit Bolduc. Also on Wednesday, Biden delivered a speech from Washington, D.C. where he blamed former President Donald Trump, his supporters and the January 6 Capitol attack for recent spikes in political violence – including in the break-in and hammer attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul.

    The legendary Lee Corso missed College GameDay in Week 9 due to health issues, further solidifying that this should be his last season on the show. Whether it’s the headgear picks, his belly-laugh-inducing off-the-cuff remarks, or the iconic “Not so fast” comments, few people have been as integral to college football fandom at large as Lee Corso as a member of ESPN’s College GameDay crew. He’s been a fabric of the college football culture with fans starting their Saturdays with him featured on the soundtrack. But on Saturday in Week 9 with GameDayChris Vannini of The Athletic in attendance for the huge HBCU rivalry game between Jackson State and Southern, Corso did not make the trip and was not part of the show. reported that it was due to a “health issue” but that Corso was in good spirits and hoped to return soon.

Moreover, fans were highly concerned about his health during Week 0 as he appeared on the pregame...
     Sex between TV star Danny Masterson and his live-in girlfriend – and alleged rape victim – was ‘never loving’ during their six years together, she told the jury at his rape trial Thursday. Instead, 'it was rough and forceful,’ Jane Doe #3 said during her third day in the witness box. ‘He did not understand that a woman needs to be prepared – not just jump on and do it their way.’ Asked during cross examination by defense attorney, Philip Cohen, if Masterson would keep on asking for sex, even when she said no, she told the court, ‘He wouldn’t ask. There was no asking – he would just do it.’ Masterson, 46 – who has been free on $3.3 million bail since his arrest in June 2020 – has pleaded not guilty to raping three women at his Hollywood Hills home between 2001 and 2003. The Scientologist actor is facing a sentence of 45 years to life in prison if he’s convicted at the end of his trial where Elvis Presley’s daughter, ex-Scientologist Lisa Marie Presley, is on the...
    United States Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) lamented the crackdown by social media companies on propaganda and right-wing disinformation during a recent discussion with a roomful of her supporters about what kids are seeing online. One woman in attendance exclaimed that “it’s TikTok" that is corrupting children and that "it needs to be gone.” Greene agreed, proclaiming that "TikTok, it is on TikTok a lot. And Instagram and other social media," despite her reliance on sites like Twitter, Rumble, and former President Donald Trump's conspiracy-riddled copycat app Truth Social for continued political exposure.

    Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports The Heat have a way of flying under the radar these days, but Miami fans have plenty of reasons to be excited about the 2022-23 NBA season.  Erik Spoelstra deserves a ton of credit for keeping the Heat in the mix for Eastern Conference supremacy on an annual basis. Miami isn’t at the forefront of a lot of fans’ minds heading into Opening Night, but overlooking this team would be a serious mistake. Pat Riley and his front office didn’t shake up the team’s roster over the summer. That was the right move given the value of continuity in Spoelstra’s system. Losing P.J. Tucker is going to sting come playoff time, but the roster should have enough depth to absorb that loss. Stars like Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, and the newly-paid Tyler Herro will continue to generate the headlines on South Beach. What the team really needs is some internal improvement from less-established players.3. The resurgence of Duncan RobinsonSome might consider this a bold prediction, but Robinson has the tools necessary to enjoy a bounceback season....
    It’s time for Patrick Williams to make a leap. Two years after the Chicago Bulls selected him with the No. 4 pick in the draft, Williams is still carrying the weight of his draft stock — and still figuring out his role. Other early selections in the 2020 class — Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball, Obi Toppin and Tyrese Haliburton — made an immediate impact. Williams’ trajectory has been more modest, hampered by a left wrist injury last season that sidelined him for all but 17 games. As he enters Year 3, Williams said his years-old draft stock isn’t weighing on him. “I don’t really go on to the game thinking that I’m the fourth overall pick,” Williams said. “I’m just Patrick Williams, No. 44 for the Chicago Bulls.” Mentality will be a key for Williams, whom the Bulls have been pushing to up the ante on his aggressiveness around the rim since he arrived in Chicago. The 6-foot-7 Williams has the stature and agility to dominate cutting to the basket. Yet he often hesitates before his takes, appearing passive alongside...
    Meghan Markle needs to build her own brand that isn't just based on her grievances if she wants to be a global business success, a royal expert has said. Asked how long-lasting the Sussex brand can be across the world now the couple are semi-outside the royal fold, ex-Vanity fair editor Tina Brown said Prince Harry, 38, would 'always be royal' as the son of King Charles and Princess Diana. She told the Cheltenham Literature Festival yesterday: 'He will always have the iconic status that that has. He does have an identity, his Invictus [Games] has an authenticity and people relate to that.' But she insisted that Harry's wife, Meghan, 41, needed to find and focus on a cause of her own. She said: 'I think Meghan does really need to find the thing she cares about the most and develop her own sort of brand that isn't just a grievance brand, that is actually something we recognise as hers. 'It's hard to find that and I think she hasn't yet found that but I think she could if she...

    Skip Bayless has became one of LeBron James‘s biggest critics, but he thinks Kareem Abdul-Jabbar should apologize to James for the treatment he has shown him. James gave a cold response when he was asked about his relationship with Abdul-Jabbar. James could break Abdul-Jabbar’s record for most points all-time this season. Abdul-Jabbar has been very critical of James in recent years. The first public outrage Abdul-Jabbar showed towards James happened when LeBron posted a meme on Instagram that compared Covid-19 to the cold and the flu. Abdul-Jabbar did not find the meme funny. “Some of the things he’s done and said are really beneath him, as far as I can see,” Abdul-Jabbar told ESPN. On Wednesday, Bayless sided with James which might be a surprise to, Fox Sports’ Undisputed, viewers because of how much criticism Bayless throws on James. Bayless has been critical of James about his play, and when he posted vacation photos. Bayless was also critical about James’ son Bronny James and his play. “There needs to be a mediation before he breaks this record,” Bayless said. Bayless...

    Cori Bush is still standing by her calls to defund the police, even after many of her Democratic colleagues have dropped the movement following a sharp drop-off in support for stripping law enforcement funding. The Missouri representative, who was adopted by the progressive squad when she was sworn into the House in 2021, said people are too caught up on the word 'defund' as she promoted her new book on Good Morning America on Tuesday. Bush said that the movement calling for defunding of police is really just a moniker for Americans pleading that the U.S. focus on the problem of police brutality in the country, especially toward communities of color. The movement garnered an immense amount of attention the summer following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 25, 2020. But 'defund police' quickly became unpopular, even among Democratic communities, as crime continued to spike in cities across the country over the last two years. 'You're one of the few Democrats who still says 'let's defund the police.' Are you worried at all that that could...
    I’m one of the people that needs to be educated, or re-educated, about concussions, brain injury and head trauma. I admit it. I would have played Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on Thursday at Cincinnati. I wouldn’t have played him in the third quarter of the Buffalo game, not after the way he wobbled around after hitting his head on the ground late in the second quarter after a hit by linebacker Matt Milano. I was surprised Tagovailoa re-entered the game so quickly. But if the doctor cleared him, and he showed me he was “good,” I’d have played him in the fourth quarter of the Bills game. That’s where I’m at with things. Honestly. I’m a caveman when it comes to concussions and brain injuries. I’d have probably played Tagovailoa against the Bills and Bengals. I need to change my thinking. More importantly, apparently the NFL, the players union, the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultants and many others in the football world need to change their thinking. Changes are coming, according to a joint statement by the NFL and the players union....
    Stephen A. Smith believes someone involved with the NFL should be held accountable for Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s concussion that led to him being carried off the field in a stretcher. Smith went on ESPN’s First Take Friday and expressed his displeasure with the NFL and Dolphins’ management for clearing Tagovailoa to play in Thursday night’s game. Tagovailoa suffered what looked like a head injury during Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills, but returned to action later in the contest — with the team claiming he’d actually suffered a back injury. Tagovailoa suffered a concussion on Thursday night after being hit  — with his arms locking up as he laid flat on the turf. Tagovailoa was taken to a local Cincinnati hospital where he was released and flew home with the Dolphins last night. Smith believes someone needs to answer questions about how Tagovailoa was able to play in Thursday night’s game, and that someone — whom he did not specifically identify as being a member of the Dolphins organization or the league — ultimately needs to be held...
    People protest the fall of Roe in Tucson, Arizona.Christopher Brown/Zuma Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.Thursday’s House Oversight Committee hearing on abortion bans was a predictable, three-hour medley of left- and right-wing talking points. Republicans accused Democrats of wanting abortion policies in line with those of North Korea and China; Democrats accused Republicans of promoting repressive policies that are comparable to how the Saudi and Iranian regimes treat women. The “fentanyl candy” hysteria made an appearance, as did an out-of-context Shakespeare quote about demanding a pound of flesh. But one witness cut through the noise, rejecting the “binary yes or no” approach to discussing abortion and shedding light on the humanity of the people who choose to terminate their pregnancies. Kelsey Leigh, a Pittsburgh woman who now works at a reproductive health center, said that she was 20 weeks and six days into a desired pregnancy when she learned that her child had a severe fetal anomaly that she considered “not compatible with life.” At 22 weeks, she had...
    In the coming legislative session the University of Minnesota administration will request an increase of 15% in state appropriations. While a portion of the increase would be allocated to financial aid, two-thirds of the increase would be spent on the ever expanding costs of operating the university. Even with the additional state appropriations, the vice chair of the Regents foresees an increase of 6% to 8% in tuition. Such an increase would undermine the effect of the additional financial aid. It is not a saving grace that the university budget is comparable to that of other large universities (as the Regents assure us). For too long, no one has been watching the store anywhere in higher education. Each year the costs of administration consume more than 25% of the $4 billion total expenses of the university. Almost 60% of the students who receive a bachelor’s degree at the university graduate with student loan debt. Most of these students are children of families with middle class incomes. The median amount of their debt is now $23,634.

    Prince Harry 'has a big role to play' in the Royal Family but needs to 'ditch' his upcoming memoir to regain his relatives' trust, Tina Brown said today.  The former Vanity Fair editor suggested the freeze in hostilities between the Duke of Sussex and his brother, the Prince of Wales, made it a good time to build bridges if he wanted to become more involved.  She told Lorraine: ‘This is an incredible moment to be used. The country loved that feeling of unity and seeing the brothers back together, it was a beautiful sight. ‘But unless he gives up his book and the tell-all documentaries and interviews then there can be no trust. I think if he does that there can be a way.   ‘The Royal Family needs him and there’s a lot of work to be done.

    Jake Tapper is, understandably, concerned about the state of American democracy following the events of January 6, 2021. He thinks they deserve further scrutiny. So on Sunday, Tapper will host a special report titled “American Coup,” the second installment of CNN’s two-hour investigation into the attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters. I spoke to Tapper on Thursday and discussed several relevant topics related to the special, including what part he felt was most significant of this wide-ranging story and how he defines in literal terms the threat to democracy revealed in the multiple schemes that have come to light as a result of the House Select Committee investigation. The CNN anchor expressed in no uncertain terms the dire threat he sees represented by a portion of the Republican Party that does not respect facts, calling them a “cancer” that needs to be removed. Tapper also credited CNN CEO Chris Licht for encouraging extensive coverage of threats to democracy, noting a dedication to calling out election lies remains strong under current CNN executives. “CNN Special Report: American Coup: The...
    As the temperature edged past 110 one afternoon last week, the air inside L’aMaira Tyson’s sagging nylon tent felt like a blast from an open oven. “It’s hot out here,” she said with stoic understatement, reclining next to two jugs of bottled water near a freeway overpass and a busy street in Sacramento. “I get through it with God.” We appreciate her faith, but this encampment felt more like hell than heaven during the worst of the “heat dome” that sent temperatures soaring across California, including a record high of 116 in the capital. “You can’t breathe,” Tyson said. “It drains you.” Heat has always made being unhoused harder. But to use that favorite word of our times, this is unprecedented. When the temperature rises to new extremes and stays elevated for days at a time, tens of thousands of homeless people end up at greater risk of heatstroke, cardiac arrest and dehydration. Unlike in cities on the East Coast and in the Midwest, which rely on a robust network of shelters to spare homeless people...
    #In other countries : Next UN Egypt, which hosts the World Climate Conference, will make Africa’s voice heard there and call for compliance with the Paris Agreement, the environment minister said, adding that the continent is experiencing the worst effects of climate change. In an interview with AFP on Wednesday, Yasmine Fouad said her country would “clearly and openly represent the African continent and its needs” at COP27, scheduled for November in the Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh. “We are not the source of (greenhouse gas) emissions, but we – our population and our natural resources – are the most affected”, Ms Fouad declared on the sidelines of a meeting with representatives of 24 African countries. In Egypt. While Africa will suffer most of the effects of climate change, including droughts and floods, the continent emits less than 4% of global CO2 emissions, former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said at a summit in the Netherlands this week aimed at supporting Africa in tackling climate change.

    Aaron Rodgers likely needed his rookie receivers to be factors anyway, but that’s even truer heading into the Packers’ Week 1 game with recent injury news. As if the Green Bay Packers needed another bother or worry regarding the wide receiver room for the 2022 season, the status of their top potential pass-catcher this year is in doubt heading into the team’s Week 1 matchup on the road against the rival Minnesota Vikings. Allen Lazard was pegged by most as the receiver most likely to step into the No. 1 role for Green Bay this season after the departure of Davante Adams. However, Lazard was apparently stepped on in practice at some point in the past week and has now been held out of practices as a result of that, putting his status for Sunday’s season-opener in a bit of jeopardy. If Lazard can’t go in Week 1, there are veteran options like newcomer Sammy Watkins and longtime Aaron Rodgers cohort Randall Cobb. But the truth of the matter is that Rodgers will need the rookie wide receivers on the...
    Kanye West has continued his war of words aimed at Adidas executives as he says he needs to buy his own major shoe company in order to be the chief decision maker. The 45-year-old artist took to Instagram once again on Monday morning to share a text post about wanting to make a major move like Authentic Brands CEO Jamie Salter's purchase of Reebok from Adidas earlier this year. He went on to claim that he's went to JP Morgan to inquire about an acquisition  but managing director and vice chairman of investment banking, Jing Ulrich, is on the board of Adidas.

    At this point, why is Scott Frost even still leading the Nebraska football program? It doesn’t matter if the Nebraska football team beats FCS North Dakota on Saturday, Scott Frost needed to go yesterday. After losing another game in typical Frost fashion, Nebraska finds itself playing down to North Dakota’s level. No, we are not talking about the North Dakota State Bison, an FCS powerhouse famous for its first-round quarterbacks, but the North Dakota Fighting Hawks, whose most famous alum is The Zen Master, Phil Jackson. This play right here is why Frost has to go now. We have not seen a special teams gaffe as bad since the Dan Quinn Atlanta Falcons could not recover an onside kick vs. his future employer in America’s Team, them Dallas Cowboys!

    A brand new virus has been detected at the Chinese laboratory at the centre of Covid's origin. Researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology discovered the pathogen — code-named LsPyV KY187 — in a mouse. It belongs to a family of polyomaviruses which infect millions of children every year but are extremely mild. Scientists at the controversial lab made the find after testing hundreds of rodents in Kenya in 2016 and 2019. Samples were then sent for analysis at the biochemical research facility in Wuhan, the city at the epicentre of the Covid pandemic. The new polyomavirus was detected in a striped grass mouse, sometimes known as a zebra mouse. It was revealed in a study published in the Chinese journal Virologica Sinica this month.  Because the new virus is not closely related to any known pathogen, its effect on people is 'unclear and needs to be further assessed', the researchers said. A brand new virus has been detected at the Chinese laboratory at the centre of Covid's origin. It was discovered in a  striped grass mouse, sometimes known as a zebra mouse (pictured),...
    Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R-AR) said “it’s not appropriate” for former President Donald Trump to have reportedly taken classified documents when he left office and added the Department of Justice case on the matter “needs to be wrapped up.” During Monday’s CNN Tonight, host Laura Coates asked Hutchinson what impact this month’s FBI raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort will have on a possible Trump or Hutchinson run for the White House in 2024. The governor didn’t answer if it’ll have an effect on whether he himself will run for president: Well, in the short term, you could almost give the attorney general the title of honorary campaign manager and fundraiser for Donald Trump. Clearly, that has resorted to his benefit in the short term. I think it’s important we keep the public interest in mind. The public interest is making sure that classified information, sensitive public documents, are returned to archives, to their protected environment. It’s not appropriate for these documents to be running loose at Mar-a-Lago. That’s not appropriate. That has to be returned and secure. And then this whole...
    THIS expert explains that quantum computing could be more dangerous to humanity than artificial intelligence, and it needs to be controlled better before it's too late. According to technology expert and Stanford University scholar Mauritz Kop, AI isn't nearly at the level that many tech moguls have made it seem in recent years, per Foreign Policy. 2Technology expert Mauritz Kop believes quantum computing needs to be regulated to avoid mistakes made with artificial intelligenceCredit: Getty "Today’s artificial intelligence is as self-aware as a paper clip. Despite the hype—such as a Google engineer’s bizarre claim that his company’s AI system had “come to life” and Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s tweet predicting that computers will have human intelligence by 2029—the technology still fails at simple everyday tasks," Kop explains. There has been consistent hysteria that has surrounded AI for years and the predictions from many like Musk who feel it could be humanity's biggest threat as we near 2030. This is mainly because governments around the world haven't officially regulated AI and the attempts to see if computers can indeed become sentient and achieve...
    Jason Miller/Getty Images Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens during warm-ups before a game against the Cleveland Browns on December 12, 2021. Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young knows a thing or two about what it’s like to have his talent somewhat compromised by the offense and supporting cast around him. Selected No. 1 overall in the 1984 supplemental NFL draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the BYU product struggled mightily for two seasons before being traded to the San Francisco 49ers in 1987, where he became a Super Bowl-winning quarterback and earned Pro Bowl honors seven times en route to Hall of Fame enshrinement in 2005. Never mind that Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has already won NFL Most Valuable Player honors (2019), has twice been named a Pro Bowler, and leads one of the most consistently successful teams in the NFL. Earlier this week, Young appeared on ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown and put the Baltimore Ravens on blast over the way they have “held back” Lamar Jackson. Steve Young: "@Lj_era8 can be the...
    The press conference in Arizona Cardinals training camp took a different turn Wednesday when receiver Marquise 'Hollywood' Brown addressed his speeding arrest to the media for the first time.  Brown was traded to the Cardinals from the Ravens earlier this year and is in the middle of his first training camp with Arizona. Earlier this month, Brown was arrested for allegedly going 126 miles an hour in a 65 mph zone.  Brown responded to questions asking if he had any messages from his teammates and responded by saying his actions were 'very disappointing.'

    (CNN)On February 7, 2018, my son Jesse Lutgen, 32, was found dead in his home. Unbeknownst to me, he'd been rationing his insulin, after losing his full-time job and health insurance the previous November. Jesse had looked into Obamacare marketplace health plans for coverage, but he simply could not afford a policy on his part-time pay from a local YMCA.The last insulin he used came from vials I had given him before he lost his insurance. They were leftovers from a diabetic friend of a friend who had died in Washington state.Janelle LutgenThis black market for insulin and other essential medications is a reality in America. One in four diabetics ration their insulin or "reported cost-related insulin underuse." Right Care Alliance, a patients and providers coalition, has documented the deaths of at least 14 diabetic Americans who've died due to rationing since 2017, including my son. It's unknown how many others have passed because of diabetic complications due to rationing.Families of diabetics who pass away look at their remaining insulin supply and realize it is liquid gold.

    A paramedic and mother has shared a 'little-known' choking hazard to be mindful of after you've hosted a party, calling it something that is 'easily missed' Advanced life support paramedic and CEO of the Australian parenting organisation Tiny Hearts Education, Nikki Jurcutz, said choking is the number one thing she gets asked about by new parents. In one of her latest TikTok videos Nikki pointed out how dangerous leftover balloon rubber is and how easily it can become trapped in your child's throat. Advanced life support paramedic and CEO of the Australian parenting organisation Tiny Hearts Education , Nikki Jurcutz, said choking is the number one thing she gets asked about by new parents 'I hosted a birthday party recently and I was cleaning up and found this part of a balloon... these are massive choking hazards and you need to be super careful around balloons,' she said. 'As you can imagine trying to do back blows to get this up when it's stuck would be near impossible. So be super vigilant.'  While choking is dangerous and can be deadly, you...
    DRIVERS are being warned that their air-con needs to be set a certain way to save fuel and avoid hefty fines. Everything from setting your air-con to the right temperature, how long you should use it and whether or not you should have it on in winter makes a difference. 1Making sure of these air-con settings will help save you moneyCredit: Getty Air-con experts Aircowell have a few recommendations for getting the best from your car's air-con system. It recommends that you "do not set the air conditioning system too cold and do not direct the airflow directly at your head or neck, as you could easily catch a cold. "The ideal temperature is between 22 and 25 degrees." However, before you've set off on a hot day, Aircowell has another tip that means your system won't work as hard and use less fuel in the process. It said: "If you have to get into the car on a hot summer’s day, it is best to open all doors and windows before setting off so that the...
    Despite the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) declaring monkeypox a public health emergency last week, one key expert is still hopeful that the virus can be contained before it develops into a full fledged outbreak. Dr Scott Gottlieb, former head of the Food and Drug Administration and current board member at pharma-giant Pfizer, told CBS' Face the Nation on Sunday that while difficult, it is possible to prevent monkeypox from becoming an endemic virus - a prospect officials likely failed with Covid. He says that the response to the virus has to be wider to control it, though. At the moment, testing has mainly been reserved to just gay and bisexual men - who make up a overwhelming majority of cases. Gottlieb believes that more cases would be found if testing was expanded beyond just that community. His comments come days after HHS declared a public health emergency over the virus on Thursday. The 7,510 recorded cases are the most of any country in the world so far. Per capita, the nation's one case per million residents on...
    When President Donald Trump takes the stage at a major conservative conference in Dallas on Saturday he will likely have just received a boost to his 2024 plans in the form of a straw poll that will almost certainly rank him as the clear favorite among attendees. But that is not the end of the story as far as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, whose star has been on the rise this year. Attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference want him first to continue the work he is doing in Florida before taking up the national MAGA torch in the 2028 election. Shane Trejo, of Republicans for Renewal, said both men were the sort of leaders that the grassroots party should be trying to emulate.  'I think it would make a lot of sense for Trump to run in 2024 and then DeSantis to finish what he's doing in Florida, make Florida a red state for generations to come, and then run in 2028,' said Trejo. 'DeSantis is a young man... that seems to be best for the for the...
    Hardline Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban received a hero's welcome at a major conservative conference in Texas on Thursday, as he urged the American right to learn from his multiple election successes. He implored his audience not to pull their punches in a culture war with globalizing liberals. And he described how Hungarian state institutions defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman.  But he made no mention of the racism controversy that followed him to the U.S., after he promised to prevent Hungary becoming a 'mixed race' nation. Instead he said supporters needed to trust their Judeo-Christian tradition and face down criticism from opponents in uncompromising style. 'We have to be brave enough to address even the most sensitive questions, migration, gender and the clash of civilizations,' he told the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas. 'Don't worry, a Christian politician cannot be racist. 'So we should never hesitate to heavily challenge our opponents on these issues. Be sure Christian values protect us from going too far.' Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban was the main attraction...
