    Cristiano Ronaldo's chief confidant Piers Morgan has revealed talk of the Portuguese's impending move to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr is premature. Speculation has been swirling since Ronaldo's bombshell interview with Morgan regarding his next club after he and Manchester United mutually agreed to tear up the remainder of his two-year deal.  This week it was reported that Ronaldo was on the verge of agreeing a deal with Saudi club Al Nassr - worth an eye-watering £173m a year.

    Photo via Evan Smith on Facebook. Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith was in a cheerful and contemplative mood when I called him earlier this week to look back on his nearly 13-year tenure at the nonprofit media outlet he helped create, sharing his unfiltered thoughts on the unique circumstances of the Tribune’s launch, how media outlets should navigate issues of bias, why he’s still optimistic about the future of journalism, and what he wants on his tombstone. I lived in Austin, where the Tribune is headquartered, for five years, and since then, they’ve been one of my top sources for Texas news. The 2022 Texas Tribune Festival (aka “TribFest”) kicked off Thursday. Smith, along with Austin venture capitalist John Thornton and former editor and owner of Texas Weekly Ross Ramsey, founded the Tribune with $4 million in seed funding.

    CANELO ALVAREZ only has one man on his mind after settling the score with Gennady Golovkin once and for all. The Mexican scored the most convincing win of his trilogy series with GGG, beating the Kazakh by unanimous decision in Las Vegas. 2Canelo Alvarez celebrates after defeating Gennady GolovkinCredit: AP It followed after a contentious draw in 2017 and razor-thin majority decision victory in the rematch a year later. Canelo, 32, came into his trilogy bout with Golovkin, 40, having been beaten by Dmitry Bivol in May. But having finished his business with GGG, the boxing superstar has one more revenge mission left to complete.

    Michigan Democratic Rep. Debbie Dingell called it a 'gotcha' question when asked Thursday if she wanted to see President Joe Biden run for a second term in 2024. 'If he wants to run, let's see what he's going to do,' Dingell eventually told NBC's Kristen Welker on Meet the Press Now. Only Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips has said that Biden shouldn't run again, though other members of the president's party have expressed a wariness, as his poll numbers have been in a slump for the past year.  Michigan Democratic Rep.

    A CAFE owner has been branded a "misogynist" after revealing he wants female staff to wear red stickers when on their periods. The boss, who runs a coffee shop in Australia, stunned radio listeners after revealing he came up with his "humiliating" plan as he was having problems with a staff member who was having "women's issues". 2Radio host Jackie O was shocked at the caller's suggestionCredit: Kyle & Jackie O Calling into the Kyle and Jackie O show on KIIS, the manager, called Anthony, told of his controversial idea and said the woman was "emotionally stressed and hormonal" as she was on her period. He said he then decided it would be a good idea for his female staff to expose when it is that time of the month by wearing a red sticker so he could identify when they need "extra space", reports news.com.au. Anthony said: "It’s very difficult for guys to understand when someone’s going through a bit of a rough patch. "So we had an issue between two staff that developed in front of customers, and...
    The last Penn State-Michigan football game was a tough one for Odafe Oweh. A year after he helped put away the Wolverines in one of his final college games, the Ravens outside linebacker had to watch from afar as the Nittany Lions gave up a late lead in a narrow home loss. Other than the whole beating-his-alma-mater thing, though, Oweh remembers liking what he saw from the Wolverines. Under then-defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald, now in his first year overseeing the Ravens’ defense, Michigan developed one of the country’s pass-rush duos. On one side was Aidan Hutchinson, the eventual No. 2 overall pick in April’s NFL draft, and on the other was David Ojabo, a first-round talent who fell to the Ravens in the second round because of injury concerns. “He lets them go,” Oweh said Friday of Michigan’s edge rushers under Macdonald. “That’s what I like. He lets them go. He lets them have freedom and just be who they are. So I’m looking forward to how he uses me.” Three days into training camp, it’s impossible to know just...
    Trey Mancini wanted to relax. Honestly, he did. Orioles manager Brandon Hyde could tell the first baseman was pressing at the plate, so he gave Baltimore’s longest-tenured player the night off Monday to unwind and take in a 5-1 win against the Tampa Bay Rays from the dugout, enjoying a view at Camden Yards that Mancini might not have for much longer as trade speculation swirls. “Me being classic me,” Mancini said, “by the third inning I’m going to the [batting] cage.” With this being the final series at Camden Yards ahead of Tuesday’s Major League Baseball trade deadline, Mancini is bracing for the possibility that this will be his final time inside the dugout along the first base side of Camden Yards. He wants to treat it as if this is his final week, in a way, because he doesn’t want to waste this time in front of the home crowd that has cheered him on since 2016 by racking his brain for a way out of a slump that, entering Wednesday, has him hitless in his last 25...

    The key Senate Republican negotiator on a legislative response to the Uvalde school shooting says President Joe Biden got 'none' of his gun control priorities in the measure, as political Washington assesses a compromise that key Democrats are only calling a first 'step.' 'People are going to describe this the wrong way, but fundamentally this is about keeping our kids safe at school,' said Texas GOP Sen. John Cornyn, who negotiated with a group of Senate Democrats on a deal that was finalized this weekend. He also crowed about measures he and Republicans were able to keep out of the deal – in a likely reference to Biden's gun control measures.  'Look at all the things that President Biden said he wanted – none of that's in there,' he told Raw Story. 'Look at all the things that President Biden said he wanted – none of that's in there,' said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) 'But we're going to focus on school safety and mental health, identifying these young men before they become dangerous, getting them treatment or certainly, they go...
    The mother of the teenager who slaughtered 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24 said in an interview that the shooter, Salvador Ramos, 'had his reasons.' Through a translator, Ramos' mother, Adriana Martinez, told CNN: 'I have no words. I have no words to say. I don't know what he was thinking. He had his reasons for doing what he did and please don't judge him. I only want the innocent children who died to forgive me. Forgive me, forgive my son. I know he had his reasons.' When asked about what those reasons could be, Martinez replied: 'To get closer to those children. Instead of paying attention to the other bad things, I have no words. I don't know.' Martinez's mother, Celia Martinez Gonzalez, was the first victim of Ramos' vile rampage when she was shot in the face, with the bullet entering her cheek and exiting under her ear, by the crazed gunman over an argument about his failure to graduate from high school.  Martinez told CNN: 'Forgive me, forgive my...
    TRAVIS Barker's son Landon showed off his "neck tattoos" on Instagram. In his caption, the 18-year-old revealed what ink he wants next to be more like his rocker dad. 5Landon Barker showed off the 'neck tattoos' he wants 'next' on InstagramCredit: Instagram / Landon Barker 5The teen appears to be following in his Blink-182 drummer dad's footsteps with his own inkCredit: Getty Landon took to his Instagram stories with a vision of his desired neck tattoo design. Flashing his teeth for the camera in a selfie, he seemed to be using a filter to give himself a neck sleeve of birds, a tooth and a butterfly. The Instagram filter also added sunglasses and some jewelry, but in his caption the son of Travis, 47, was focused on one thing, writing: "Neck tats next." The teenager, a musician like his dad, seems to be emulating him as he already has a few real tattoos ahead of this jarring post.

    (CNN)Democrats are quickly running out of time to clinch a deal on a climate and clean energy package -- one of the last vestiges of President Joe Biden's original agenda. With just weeks to go before a deadline, what exactly Democratic swing vote Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia wants in a package is still proving hard to pin down. Manchin restarted talks with the White House weeks ago on the contours of a slimmed down package to combat inflation, raise corporate taxes and fund clean energy investments -- but those talks haven't yet produced a deal. Manchin raised eyebrows on Monday by convening a bipartisan group of senators to try to find areas of agreement on energy security and climate change. "Monday's meeting was an effort to gauge bipartisan interest in a path forward that addresses our nation's climate and energy security needs head on," Manchin's spokesperson Sam Runyon told CNN in a statement.North Dakota Sen. Kevin Cramer, the lone Republican at the Monday meeting, told CNN that it's his belief that Manchin has turned to more of a...
    Only a couple pieces of major economic data were reported Monday, which gave the financial media a chance to spend a lot of time chattering about Elon Musk and his manipulations. It emerged on Sunday that the pro-China tech mogul declined an invitation to join the Twitter board. Musk’s super-fans speculated that this is because he’s planning a hostile takeover of the social media platform. Elon-skeptics, however, noted the victory-lap-like statement from Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal which specified that the board seat was “contingent on a background check.” No one other than Musk truly knows why he didn’t join the board, but it is clear that Musk knows what he wants (attention and money) and is getting more of it every day. Though it would be delicious to see the wokesters at Twitter get put in their place, we remain skeptical until Musk makes a bigger move. It would only cost him about another $15 billion. Meanwhile, Tesla’s Shanghai factory (of course Musk has a Shanghai factory) has been shuttered due to severe COVID lockdowns imposed on the city by...
    President Joe Biden on Monday called for a war crimes trial against Russian President Vladimir Putin and said more sanctions were in the works following the report of atrocities in Bucha, Ukraine. 'He is a war criminal,' Biden told reporters of Putin. 'But we have to gather the information. We have to continue to provide Ukraine with the weapons they need to continue to fight and we have to get all the detail so this could be – actual have a war crimes trial. This guy is brutal and what's happening in Bucha is outrageous and everyone's seen it.' He added he is 'seeking more sanctions' but declined to detail what those would be. The U.S. has implemented harsh financial penalities on Russian officials, banks and businesses after its invasion of the Ukraine.  'He should be held accountable,' Biden said of Putin.  The president also said he didn't think what happened in Bucha, Ukraine, was genocide but called it 'war crime.'  He has previously called Putin a war criminal but this was the first time he has called for the...
    It was exactly one year ago that David Busch-Lilly realized that life as he had come to know it was about to end. It was a Friday morning, not far from the placid water of Echo Park Lake. Police officers and outreach workers had him surrounded — and they were getting impatient. “They said, ‘David, we’re here to offer you housing,’” Busch-Lilly recalled. For eight months, he had been living alongside roughly 200 other unhoused people in a sprawling, commune-like encampment they had built in the park. Busch-Lilly called it “beautiful” and city officials called a place of “squalor and filth.” Whatever it was, the LAPD had helped break it up the previous two nights after the city ordered the park closed for repairs and homeless people sent away. Only Busch-Lilly and one other man, Ayman Ahmed, remained. “Are you going to accept it?” the outreach workers pressed. Busch-Lilly didn’t say what they wanted to hear, so he was taken into police custody. By Saturday morning, he was back on streets. By Saturday evening, he was back...
    (CNN)Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky beamed into Congress on Wednesday, invoking FDR and MLK and 9/11 and Pearl Harbor in a stirring speech, and called on President Joe Biden to become the leader of the free world.Speaking in English, Zelensky said democratic nations and their leaders must look beyond their borders."It is not enough to be the leader of the nation," he said.

    Bill Barr said he suspected Vladimir Putin would see President Joe Biden as 'weak' and start 'grabbing whatever he wanted' with more bravado. The former Attorney General, who served under Donald Trump's administration, added that Biden's win offered Russia with 'no incentive to use diplomacy', especially following the President's withdrawal from Afghanistan and taking the U.S. out of energy independence. Speaking with Fox News, Barr said: 'Given Biden's manifest weakness, Putin is likely to feel he's better off making no concessions at all.' Bill Barr said he suspected Putin would see President Joe Biden as 'weak' and start 'grabbing whatever he wanted' with more bravado A passage from Barr's new book, One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General, read: 'I am afraid that, with a wavering, intermittently alert Joe Biden in the Oval Office, Vladimir Putin will pursue Russian strategic goals more assertively and feel little need to find agreed-upon frameworks with the U.S.' Touching on 'Russia-gate', Barr implied that by furthering the state away from diplomatic relations following Trump's loss, Russia became bolder. He said that even...
    Tucker Carlson was eager to defend Vladimir Putin until it turned out that everything he had been saying about him was wrong. Tucker Carlson is utterly baffled that people would think he is rooting for Vladimir Putin and Russia in its war on Ukraine. “You know, it’s such an awful thing to say,” he said on his Fox News show Monday, after playing a clip of Congressman Eric Swalwell saying he and other Republicans were on Putin’s side. “We hesitated to play that, even—it’s very common, you hear it every day. The question is: Why are they saying that? It doesn’t make any sense.” Gaslighting, of course, has become Carlson’s specialty. In reality, Carlson spent most of the month prior to the invasion praising Putin and echoing Russian propaganda: running down Ukraine, deriding it as a “State Department client state”—not a democracy, but “a tyranny”—and claiming that Russia just wants to keep its borders secure, everything the fault of Joe Biden. So much so that he became the hero of Russian state television, where his rants were translated and replayed, and...
    ARSENAL transfer target Jonathan David has reportedly revealed that he plans to leave Lille in the summer. The 22-year-old hotshot is eager to move on when the season ends despite being contracted to Lille until 2025, according to journalist Florian Plettenberg. 2Arsenal could provide wantaway Lille star David with the Champions League football he desires next seasonCredit: Ken Sparks/UK Sports Pics Ltd 2The Canadian striker is keen on a move away from France this summer - but will only play for a team that is in the elite European competitionCredit: Ken Sparks/UK Sports Pics Ltd But the Canadian striker is only interested in a move to a club that can provide him with the chance to play in the Champions League next season. And Arsenal could satisfy David's desire to grace the elite European stage if they manage to qualify for the tournament. A coveted top-four spot is still within the Gunners' grasp as they're two points behind Manchester United - who occupy the position at present. If the Gunners can snag the last Champions League spot it will give...
    Russian President Vladimir Putin has taken the first steps of sending his military into Ukrainian territory following weeks of posturing on the border with the threat of a looming conflict. Putin’s plans, which U.S. officials say are to invade Ukraine, are the latest in an effort by the Russian leader to restore "historic Russia." His other major consideration revolves around NATO, and keeping the Western alliance as far away from Russia's borders as possible. Ukraine isn’t currently a member of NATO, though Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has expressed interest in joining. Ukraine is presently considered a “partner country” to the military alliance. RUSSIA FORMALLY RECOGNIZES TWO SEPARATIST REGIONS IN EASTERN UKRAINE, PAVING WAY FOR INVASION Despite Ukraine not being a NATO member, the United States and some European countries have provided it with limited military aid and other forms of economic and military support. But they have made clear that the trans-Atlantic alliance will not wage war on its behalf. Putin described the matter of NATO’s possible presence in Ukraine as “our sharpest dispute with Washington and NATO,” while addressing...
    New KELL BROOK wants to sit down and enjoy a coffee with Amir Khan after ending their ten-year rivalry in brutal fashion. The 35-year-old pair of ex-world champions at last put bragging rights and reputations on the line. 2Kell Brook and Amir Khan after their grudge matchCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun In truth, their feud goes back almost two decades as young schoolboys on the England team. But it was Brook who stayed true to his words after all these years, stopping Khan in six one-sided but thrilling rounds. The pair then embraced in the ring, which could signal the latest British rivals turning pals overnight. Brook told Behind The Gloves: "I said, 'Listen, you've got the heart of a lion'. He took some big shots. "I said, 'Listen, let's just put that to bed now'. We both said we're going to put that to bed and maybe have a coffee one time.

    With Carlos Correa wanting a massive contract and the Houston Astros seemingly unwilling to throw money his way, how do fans view the situation? Carlos Correa is one of the most talented players MLB has to offer right now. He’s a fan favorite with the Houston Astros and is widely beloved in the Bayou City for the way he produces and has helped elevate this franchise. Correa has been a constant as the Astros have moved from being a lovable underdog to a juggernaut folks love to hate. He’s been a central figure in Houston making it to the World Series three times in five seasons. He was a star on the team that brought a championship to Houston. So, do Houston fans want Correa to get a massive contract from the Astros? Well, it doesn’t seem like some would be upset if the Astros moved on from Correa. In a poll run by Jake Kaplan of The Athletic, only 29.2 percent of responses indicated they wanted the Astros to pay Correa $300 million or more. The remaining responses had...

    Fox News co-host John Roberts shredded New York City Mayor Eric Adams over wanting NYC residents to “feel safe.” In the aftermath of a man, 61-year-old Martial Simon, allegedly sending 40-year-old Michelle Go to her death on Sunday by pushing her onto subway tracks, Adams said Tuesday, “We’re going to drive down crime and we’re going to make sure New Yorkers feel safe in our subway system, and they don’t feel that way now. I don’t feel that way when I take the train every day or when I’m moving throughout our transportation system.” During Tuesday’s America Reports, Roberts told co-host Sandra Smith, “I’m sure that you’ve taken the subway a lot too, and there were times I would sort of stand on the edge of the platform, never thinking somebody might shove me in the way of the train.

    YOU’VE got to feel for Jack Grealish’s long-term girlfriend Sasha Attwood. Having met him at school (when Man City was a mere twinkle in his eye) she’s put in about ten years of hard slog at the pit face of potential Wagdom. 6Jack's girl should copy Kate Middleton to win the Mrs Grealish title, says Jane MooreCredit: Splash Maybe she doesn’t want to get married, or maybe her engagement ring mood board on Pinterest is now running to several pages. Who knows? She was spotted wearing a ring on her engagement finger in November, but there’s been no official announcement. Meanwhile, she’s still having to play Wag whack-a-mole and fend off potential rivals for the, ahem, prize, of being Jack’s one and only. The latest unsettling story to surface is that 26-year-old Jack partied with Towie’s Chloe Brockett just days after the Euros final. He was in Mykonos with pals when he “made a beeline” for her at a bar then, after “talking, drinking and enjoying ourselves” he “asked me to come back to his villa”. He invited her on...
    Getty Brooklyn Nets stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving look on during a 2020 game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Kevin Durant may be having an MVP-type season for the Brooklyn Nets, but even he can’t be expected to compensate for the loss of a player like Kyrie Irving on a nightly basis. The team’s Friday bout with the defending-champion Bucks was a good reminder of how that can play out. Less than two days after a returning Irving teamed up with Durant to lead Brooklyn to a comeback win over the Pacers, the Nets — sans Irving — were trounced by Milwaukee on their home floor. And it happened despite the fact that KD dropped a 29-9-7 line in the game. In spite of the difference, Durant isn’t looking to force his teammate’s hand where getting his COVID-19 vaccination is concerned. Even if Irving not getting the poke means that he’ll be restricted to playing in road games for the foreseeable future. “I told him how important he is, how much I want him to play every game,”...

    A WOMAN sought advice from fellow mums as her husband messaged for his lunch to be ready at 1pm. The wife wanted to know if the request was normal or if it was something to be upset about. 1A woman took to Mumsnet to ask if it was normal for her husband to tell her what time he wants his lunchCredit: Getty She explained that he would say when he wants lunch and then disappear to work for hours. Taking to Mumsnet, she explained that her husband will say: "Please have lunch ready for 1pm. Thankyou." She said: "I’m interested to know if anyone else’s husband would say this in the morning before disappearing into his office for several hours. Please be honest." Fellow Mumsnet users were quick to jump in with their opinion. One person said: "Not a chance.

    The Atlanta Braves should not be operating with fear when it comes to getting top free agent Freddie Freeman to put pen to paper and re-sign with the defending World Series Champions. While the players may be locked out by MLB, Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is still unsigned this deep into his free agency period. Freeman has only played for the Braves organization since being drafted out of high school in 2007. He has not only been a perennial All-Star in Atlanta uniform, but has been the franchise cornerstone since Chipper Jones retired nearly a decade ago. Freeman is 32-years-old and has one big free-agency deal left on the horizon. It is a no-brainer, but why are the Braves taking so long? This is all about projecting what Freeman could be like at the end of this big contract extension.Why the Braves are apprehensive about giving Freddie Freeman what he wantsFreeman reportedly wants a six-year deal in his free agency.

    Getty Riqui Puig in action for Barcelona. Barcelona coach Xavi has offered his thoughts on midfielder Riqui Puig who continues to struggle for game time at the Camp Nou, particularly following the emergence of teenagers Gavi and Nico Gonzalez. Xavi was asked for his thoughts on the 22-year-old at a pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of Barcelona’s La Liga clash against Villarreal. The coach made it clear that the youngster will get chances to impress this season, as reported by Diario Sport. “He is one of the squad and, like everyone, will have opportunities, we are in several competitions. He has a huge talent to attack defenders, to reach the area and is capable of giving that final pass we need,” he said. “He has an innate talent and has to be important for the team like Gavi and Nico are. He has to dare, he has to shoot, he has to get to the area.” Puig was advised to go out on loan by former boss Ronald Koeman but opted to stay and has found first-team...
    Alabama football coach Nick Saban turns 70 on Halloween and he knows exactly what it is he’d like for a present. Nick Saban shares his birthday with Halloween. This year, Saban won’t have a game to coach with Alabama having an open week, so he may have some time to go trick-or-treating. Well, actually, don’t count on that happening. Saban will likely be in the office grinding away at the tape and preparing the game plan for next weekend’s game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan Byron Kennedy, who gave up Tom Brady’s 600th career touchdown football, wants something more than all the money and Bucs merchandise coming his way. “Maybe play a round of golf with Tom as a repayment,” Kennedy told NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano on Monday. “I think that would be pretty cool.” .@Buccaneers fan, Byron Kennedy, who returned @TomBrady’s 600th career pass TD ball joins @AndrewSiciliano to share his one request from Brady ????. pic.twitter.com/Na05vhVIyG — NFL Network (@nflnetwork) October 25, 2021 Siciliano then humorously asked Kennedy if he would want to call plays for the Bucs on Sunday instead.

    (CNN)The leader of the Haitian gang who kidnapped 17 US and Canadian missionaries has threatened to kill the hostages if he doesn't get what he's demanding, according to a video released Thursday.The video was taken Wednesday at a funeral for gang members he alleges were killed at the hands of police, a Haitian security force source tells CNN.The missionary group, which includes several children, has been held captive since Saturday.

    (CNN)Donald Trump was 23 when the Rolling Stones released a seven-minute song that began with the voices of London's Bach Choir. "...No, you can't always get what you want, you can't always get what you want," the choristers sang, "...but if you try sometime you find, you get what you need." The song must have made an impression since Trump wound up using it regularly at his rallies, from the 2016 campaign on -- until, after threats of legal action from the band, he replaced it with the Village People's "Y.M.C.A." The theme of wishes denied seems apt for Trump these days. The former President keeps railing against the 2020 election results, falsely claiming Joe Biden's victory was fraudulent. On Wednesday, he broke new ground by saying Republicans won't vote in 2022 and 2024 if "we don't solve the presidential election fraud of 2020...It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do." But the election is settled -- Trump can't get what he wants. "For someone who had talked an awful lot about being a winner," Michael D'Antonio...
     (CNN) — These days, brushing his teeth while standing up is a major accomplishment. But Robby Walker is alive — a feat some doctors didn’t expect two months ago. And while the 52-year-old struggles to speak long sentences, he’s now using his voice to try to prevent others from suffering the way he did.

    A Canadian woman was so disgusted to find a married man looking to cheat on his disabled wife on Tinder that he tracked the wife down to expose him. Vanessa Riley was swiping through men recently when she came across Chris, a 44-year-old man from North Cowichan, British Columbia. In his own profile, Chris admits that he is a 'cheating husband' because his wife is disabled and not giving him 'what he needs.' Understandably horrified, Vanessa found Chris's wife on Instagram and gently let her know what was going on — and has been labeled a 'queen' who is 'doing god's work' on TikTok.  A Canadian woman was so disgusted to find a married man looking to cheat on his disabled wife on Tinder that he tracked the wife down to expose him Vanessa Riley was swiping through men recently when she came across Chris, a 44-year-old man from North Cowichan, British Columbia who wants to cheat on his diabled wife @vanessariley_hub Your internet big sis saving you from cheaters #youmademehatethiscity #billieeilish #fyp #foryoupage #labourday #cheater #greenscreen #summerrecap #bc ♬ original...
    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson promised to “build back beaver” in Britain’s countryside during a Conservative Party Conference speech in Manchester early Wednesday. Johnson praised the United Kingdom’s efforts to improve the climate and combat global warming with the country’s reported rising numbers of animal species reentering their natural habitats across the country. The prime minister promised to “rewild” parts of Britain’s countryside and demanded to “build back beaver.” “Vast, untouched water, hills and broadly forests,” the prime minister said. “We are going to rewild parts of the country, and consecrate a total of 30 percent to nature. We’re planting tens of millions of trees. Otters are returning to rivers to which they have been absent for decades.” “Beavers that have not been seen on rivers since the Tudor times. Massacred for their pelts, are now back. If that isn’t conservatism, my friend, I don’t know what is. Build back beaver, I say. Build back beaver.” “Build back beaver, I say, build back beaver.” — Boris Johnson pic.twitter.com/KGsXQv3f2p — Howard Mortman (@HowardMortman) October 6, 2021 The U.K. government joined...
    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has a long history of throwing his weight around whenever the United States needs to raise its debt ceiling, and October 2021 is no exception. McConnell, Jonathan Weisman reports in the New York Times, "appears to want to sow political chaos for Democrats while insulating himself and other Republicans from an issue that has the potential to divide them." Weisman reports, "Mr. McConnell has said the government must not be allowed to stop paying its debts; he has also said he will not let any Republicans vote to raise the limit, while moving repeatedly to block Democrats from doing so themselves. Instead, he has prescribed a path forward for Democrats: Use a complicated budget process known as reconciliation to maneuver around a Republican filibuster that he refuses to lift." “It’s a qualitatively new level of irresponsibility.” As the US hurtles toward a debt crisis, it remains unclear wh… https://t.co/hgMJoMhbKU — Jonathan Weisman (@Jonathan Weisman) 1633429577.0 Another factor might be at play: Mr. McConnell cannot control his members and is reluctant to risk the ire of...
    On Thursday morning, with the fate of major legislation still in the balance, everyone in Washington, D.C. appears to be working furiously to please one person: West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin. Actually, that’s not quite true. Republicans aren’t working at all. They’re absolutely pig-in-sh*t happy with their current position of sitting back and laughing; content that the news will be ready to quote them on Friday about either how Democrats either failed to govern, or how Democrats are spendthrifts. And they are absolutely certain that the news won’t bother to note Republicans’ role in shoving the nation to the brink of disaster. It’s really only Democrats who are desperately trying to determine what will please Manchin. But they won’t find that answer in the “top line” items that Manchin and Schumer scribbled their names on. The reason for this is simple enough: Joe Manchin is a coal mine owner. He started the mining company Enersystems in 1988, and that company is still operated by his son. Let’s make this really simple: 1. Sen. Joe Manchin makes about $500,000 each year directly from stock in his coal...

    It’s been more than two years since Ryan Adams’ life imploded after several women, including his ex-wife Mandy Moore and musician Phoebe Bridgers, came forward in Feb. 2019 to accuse the singer-songwriter of emotional abuse and sexual misconduct. The fallout came swiftly as the New York Times published the allegations and became part of a tidal wave of MeToo coverage—where previously silenced women and men were finally emboldened to hold untouchable Hollywood icons accountable for their bad behavior and sometimes criminal actions. For Adams, it meant a canceled tour, his manager publicly dumping him, and being dropped from his label Blue Note/Capitol Records, with his forthcoming albums shelved as well. The 46-year-old has spent his forced isolation binging Bravo reality television, ordering copious amounts of Thai food, and plucking away at his guitar and writing somber lyrics, such as “I close my eyes and beg forgiveness before I sleep.” But Adams has had enough of his exile, which prompted him to sit down with Los Angeles magazine for his first interview since the exposé dropped. It’s clear Adams desperately...
    United States He had been playing catch-up since the start of his rally in Las Vegas in early July. His two defeats (Nigeria and Australia) in friendlies before traveling to Tokyo and the stumble against France in their Olympic premiere they invited us to think of another script that was not planned as it was to see the Americans without the gold. But the moment of truth arrived and the American team took out their best version, the one they seemed to have hidden, and began to leave rivals along the way until they returned to the Oceanic team that beat 97-78 in a great second half. that allows them to get into their fourth consecutive Olympic final from the hand of a Kevin Durant spectacular (23 points and nine rebounds for him). The match started with Goorjian’s team accepting the physical stake of their rival. Something that until now only France had managed to do. The boomers were clear that this was the key to winning the victory: growing big in areas where this US team has fewer resources...

The 2018 NASCAR Cup Series champion is preparing for the change by making a simple request from the new driver of the No. 2 Ford Mustang. Logano needs Cindric to push him as a competitor. The driver of the No. 22 Team Penske Ford made the comments during an appearance on SiriusXM NASCAR’s “Behind the Wheel” prior to a trip to Watkins Glen International.

    Kevin Federline wants his ex-wife Britney Spears to be 'healthy and happy' as her conservatorship battle with her dad, Jamie Spears, plays out in court. On Wednesday, Britney, 39, pleaded with a Los Angeles judge to free her from her court-ordered conservatorship, which has given father Jamie almost complete control over her personal life and $60 million fortune for the last 13 years. And Kevin – who was married to Britney between 2004 and 2007, and shares sons Sean, 15, and Jayden, 14 with the star – is supporting whatever is best for her, according to his divorce attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan.

    President Biden wouldn't say much about his upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, though it was the topic of several questions posed by reporters at his news conference Monday after meetings with NATO leaders in Brussels. The president's meeting Wednesday is perhaps the most-anticipated aspect of his week-long foreign trip to the United Kingdom, Belgium and Switzerland.  "I'll tell you that when it's over," Mr. Biden deflected, replying to a correspondent's question about his expectations of the Russian president and concessions he hoped to get. He said he wouldn't negotiate in the press.  In response to a question from CBS News chief White House correspondent Nancy Cordes, Mr. Biden also sought to put to rest any concern that meeting with Putin so soon in his presidency could unduly raise his prominence. "Every world leader here that's a member of NATO that spoke today ... thanked me for meeting with Putin now," the president said, putting the number of leaders who had done so at about 10 to 12. "They thought it was thoroughly appropriate that I do so," ...

    World No. 4 Dominic Thiem broke the ice for the next generation when he lifted the US Open last year. In the previous season, he had raised his level and registered wins over players like Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. During the ATP Finals, he beat Rafa, which was termed one of the best matches of the season.  Recently, Dominic Thiem was competing at the Dubai Duty-Free Tennis tournament. However, Lloyd Harris, who eventually lost in the final, handed Thiem a first-round defeat.
