    Social media users have criticised an Oxford academic who controversially claimed that letting meat-eaters die if they were drowning can be ethical because of the suffering they cause to animals.   Dr Michael Plant, a philosopher focusing on happiness, and who eats meat, argued that it can be justifiable to not save people like himself. Critics immediately disputed his argument, based entirely on a hypothetical scenario where a member of the public witnessed a meat-eater dying.  MailOnline readers said the logic — which Dr Plant did not confess to sharing— 'works both ways'. Twitter users described it as 'literally nuts'. One called Julie said: 'I don't eat red meat but whether I did nor not, I'd never let a stranger die if I could save them.' Another joked: 'Two steaks will be consumed tonight in honour of this Tweet.' One user, who doesn't publish their real name, asked: 'What if they're unconscious is there a way of telling meat eaters from vegetarians?' Killian Muster replied: 'You don't need to tell if they're vegans. They WILL tell you.' And Paul Fox said:...

    Former Washington, D.C. police officer Michael Fanone received and shared a phone call Tuesday, wherein a man wished death upon him. The caller was presumably irate, at least in part, over Fanone’s prominent presence on CNN and in hearings held by the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. NBC News reporter Ryan J. Reilly shared a recording of the call on Twitter – hours after Fanone was in court and said he hoped a man who was convicted in the riot “suffers” in prison.

    A suspect linked to a traffic accident shooting pulled off a Hollywood-like escape while he and his friend were being chased by the police in the central Argentine province of Córdoba. The daring bolt for freedom took place Tuesday during a road rage incident in Córdoba City after the 36-year-old driver shot a motorist in the leg.  Surveillance camera footage released by the Córdoba police department shows the fleeing car racing down a dirt road with the cops in pursuit.  A man sitting in the front passenger seat suddenly jumps out of the moving vehicle.
    TikTok is being slammed over a 'fatphobic' filter which puffed up people's faces and added wrinkles to them, so that users could see what they'd looked like if they were 'ugly.'  The effect, which has since been removed by the video streaming platform, became popular in early June and allowed users to make their faces large and rugged looking.  Many people began posting videos of themselves with and without the filter, as the song 1, 2, 3 by Sofia Reyes played in the background. TikTok user @eunicetjoaa was one of the first to participate in the trend, and her video gained more than 30 million views and inspired others to try it too.  TikTok is being slammed over a 'fatphobic' filter which puffed up people's faces and added wrinkles to them, so that users could see what they'd looked like if they were 'ugly' The effect, which has since been removed by the video streaming platform, became popular in early June and allowed users to make their faces large and rugged looking Many people began posting videos of themselves with and...
    Stephen Colbert mocked reporting on the recession by CNN and MSNBC for seeming totally clueless. During Thursday’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, he stated what the definition of a recession is and played clips of CNN and MSNBC doing the Biden administration’s bidding in avoiding calling that day’s report showing GDP declining for the second consecutive quarter a recession. “So, we’re in a recession. Or are we?” said Colbert. “According to the White House, two consecutive quarters of economic contraction does not, in and of itself, constitute a recession.” “Thankfully, we have cable news to cut through all the spin and give us some straight answers,” he then set up the clips by asking questions they might answer. “CNN, we’ve had back-to-back quarters of negative growth. What does that mean historically?” He played a clip of CNN’s Matt Egan saying, “Every single time since 1948 that you’ve had back-to-back quarters of negative growth, you’ve had a recession, every time.” “So, that’s the case this time,” said Colbert. “That may not necessarily be the case this time,” said Egan. “Okay....

    Authorities confirmed that two Molotov cocktails were used to firebomb the offices of a prominent Wisconsin anti-abortion lobbying group over the weekend. During the attack, vandals also spray painted the walls with the chilling message: 'If abortions aren't safe you aren't either.' No one has been arrested and there are no suspects in custody in the fire that was discovered early Sunday morning. It was spotted when someone driving to Madison's nearby airport noticed flames coming from the office building that is home to Wisconsin Family Action, Madison Police Chief Shon Barnes said at a news conference on Monday.  Barnes added that there is no evidence that this act was an 'inside job.' One Molotov cocktail thrown into the Wisconsin Family Action office failed to ignite and the investigation is ongoing as to whether the second one did, the police chief said, although a room at the foundation was badly-damaged by fire.  Wisconsin Family Action is a non-profit organization that supports pro-life measures. The attack comes just days after a leaked U.S. Supreme Court opinion revealed that the court may...
    President Joe Biden said new sanctions on Russia were about 'increasing the pain' on Russian President Vladimir Putin – whom he termed a 'brute' during a tense exchange with a reporter at a press conference in Brussels Thursday.  He also said that new sanctions on Russia, which have been increasing by the day,  are here to stay. 'The single most important thing is for us to stay unified,' Biden said when asked by a reporter who said the threat of sanctions had failed to deter Putin from invading Ukraine. 'Let's get one thing straight,' Biden said, when asked why he thinks Putin would change course. 'I did not say that sanctions would in fact deter him. Sanctions never deter,' Biden lectured. 'You keep talking about that.' 'The maintenance of sanctions, increasing the pain … is to be sure that after a month we will sustain what we’re doing – not just next month, the following month, but for the remainder of this entire year,' he continued. 'You're playing a game with me,' Biden told a reporter who pressed him on Russia policy. ...

    MILLIONS of Americans are owed compensation after an Equifax data breach. Equifax, one of the major credit reporting bureaus, was the subject of a major data breach in 2017 that exposed the sensitive information of millions of US consumers. 2Equifax was the subject of a major data breach in 2017Credit: EPA As part of the global settlement, those affected had the choice to either receive a $125 lump sum payment or free credit monitoring from Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.

There will be a deadline to sign up for credit monitoring. Once enrolled, users will be able to access benefits such as daily credit monitoring, alerts when applying for a new credit card or bank account, online access to their monthly Experian credit report, identity theft insurance and...
    Scouting Report: I was thinking the other day, if I was going to be stranded after some plane crash in a remote area deep in the woods, the Relwen Quilted Tanker is the jacket I’d want on my back. I hate cold weather. Yeah, yeah…some people love the winter “vibes.” But I know my body just wasn’t meant for it because this cold is actually killing me. Some days I'm lucky enough to stay inside and order my groceries from Instacart, but other days I'm actually obligated to leave my apartment and face the harsh reality of winter. For so long, I was convinced that I didn’t need a nice winter jacket and instead, I could just layer up with a couple of hoodies and long sleeves. But then I'd walk outside and a gust of wind would cut through the cloth, sending chills all over my body. Now, I charge through the cold because I’m armed with one of the best jackets I've ever had—the Relwen Quilted Tanker. Relwen Quilted Tanker Jacket
    THE FBI used a 'geofence warrant' to access data about all Android users who were near a BLM protest attack, according to new documents.

This was one day after a police officer shot Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Recently released documents show that the FBI used a controversial 'geofence warrant' to make Google give them information about all Android devices that had been near the area around the time of the attack.

    Tucker Carlson slammed those who have accused him doing the bidding of Vladimir Putin during the ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine. Russian has amassed its military on Ukraine’s eastern border and many are worried that Putin will order an invasion. The Fox News host has repeatedly said that whatever geopolitical interests the United States may have in Ukraine, they are not worth escalating. He also noted a recent phone call in which President Joe Biden seemed more concerned about an imminent Russian invasion than Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Zelensky reportedly told Biden to “calm down the messaging” about a possible invasion. “If you’re not terrified about the prospect of the Russian invasion of the Ukraine, the question is whose side are you on here? Whose side are you on?!” said Carlson, mocking the media’s framing of the situation in eastern Europe. “And we know the answer to that question. You’re on Vladimir Putin’s side.” So it looks like the president of Ukraine himself has been compromised Russian misinformation. The Ukrainian president is what we on cable news refer to...

    THE final advance child tax credit payment will be deposited today into the account of millions of Americans. The monthly check has been a welcome relief for families trying to get back on their feet but some are surprised by the amount. 1Some parents are seeing a smaller advanced child tax credit payment this month Some people are seeing a larger check, while others are getting less money than expected. Previously, child tax credit (CTC) payments from the IRS have totaled about $15billion each month. Some families are seeing a larger payment because they're getting all six payments at once. This is the sixth and final check for 2021. Why did I get less in child tax credits? There are some families who won't be receiving the full $250 or $300 per child payment.

    Ben Affleck is getting backlash for 'blaming' his ex-wife Jennifer Garner for his past alcoholism which he recently claimed was a side effect of feeling 'trapped' in their decade-long marriage. The 49-year-old actor made the eyebrow-raising remarks on The Howard Stern Show, where he admitted he 'probably still would've been drinking' if he hadn't separated from Garner, 49, in 2015. 'You blame your ex wife for drinking? You were a drunk before you married her!' tweeted out one impassioned Twitter user, with several others demanding him to take 'responsibility' for his own actions. They continued: 'Speaking poorly about the mother of your children pretty much makes to [sic] a terrible father and a total d***head!'

    Believing you have been abducted by aliens could be as bad for your mental health as actually being kidnapped. Elvis Presley, David Bowie and Robbie Williams are among those who believe in UFOs, and thousands of people worldwide claim to have fallen victim to an alien abduction. Now a study has found almost half of 'alien abductees' meet the criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). That proportion is slightly higher than the rate in people who have been kidnapped. Researchers could only look at 19 people claiming to have been abducted by aliens, as they are not easy to find. When compared to 32 people who did not think they had been taken by extraterrestrials, the rate of PTSD was higher for those claiming an alien abduction. Now a study has found almost half of 'alien abductees' meet the criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) (stock image) The findings provide interesting evidence that people can be traumatised by something which almost certainly never actually happened. The authors of the study, which involved Zaragoza University in Spain, state: 'The emotional reaction...
    The CEO of an online startup fired 900 of his employees in a brutal Zoom call - then slammed them over being so lazy they effectively 'stole' from customers. Vishal Garg axed around nine per cent of mortgage firm Better.com's workforce last Wednesday, including its entire diversity, equity and inclusion team, which deals with complaints about racism and sexism in the workplace.  The blunt call saw Garg say: 'This isn't news that you're going to want to hear...If you're on this call, you are part of the unlucky group that is being laid off. Your employment here is terminated effective immediately.' Garg had warned what lay ahead for staff during the three minute call, telling them: 'I come to you with not great news. The market has changed, as you know, and we have to move with it in order to survive so that hopefully, we can continue to thrive and deliver on our mission.

    An $11,600-a-year Kansas City private school has been embroiled in a racism storm after a student issued a racist homecoming date invite.  It saw the unnamed boy ask his prospective date - both of whom are white - 'If I were black, I would be picking cotton, but I'm white so I'm picking you for Hoco?' The girl, who has not been named, crossed off the 'Yes,' box, and was filmed smiling next to her date on camera. One of the students attends the private St James' Catholic Academy in the city, with the other at Olathe South High School, although it remains unclear which teen attends which school, and where the homecoming dance was being held    Rhonda Windholz, the mother of the girl, claimed that the sign was made with the help of a white girl and a black boy.

    MANY families still have not received the child tax credit payments yet as the cash is rolled out – but there are steps eligible parents can take. The IRS has not explained why some haven't received their monthly tax credit payment for September or why but reports indicated many hard-hit households are struggling with the delays. 1Many families still have not received the September child tax credit paymentsCredit: Getty The Detroit Free Press cited a number of complaints on their social media platforms and spoke to a number of people impacted by the payment bottle neck. The IRS told the newspaper that less than two percent of those receiving them (700,000 families) didn't get the cash and stated that they would receive them "as early as Friday by direct deposit" or within days by mail. However, the agency explained that many Americans experiencing this could be taxpayers who recently updated their bank account or address on the IRS Child Tax Credit Update Portal. They advised that this mostly happened to "married filing jointly taxpayers where only one spouse...

    The "Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show" discussed on Monday how the sudden and dangerous fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban proves how establishment "experts" can't be trusted to provide expertise on any pressing issue. Host Buck Sexton noted how Secretary of State Antony Blinken was one of the few Biden officials defending the administration's actions in Afghanistan despite conditions in the country were rapidly deteriorating. In interviews over the weekend, Blinken said the U.S. has "tremendously more [counter-terrorism] capacity" in the region than before September 11, 2001. "How can anyone listen to Tony Blinken and say ‘I think they’ve got a handle on the situation'?" Sexton asked. Host Clay Travis added that such a question can be applied to other crises including the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants flowing across the southern border, record inflation, and COVID orders.  Video"This is where the foreign policy calamity rolls into the domestic disaster which is… based on what you're seeing on your televisions and have seen of the Taliban rise up and take over Afghanistan faster than any of the...
    Well, at least he’s acknowledging he’s no longer president. Former President Donald Trump joined Dan Bongino Saturday on Fox News for a meandering discussion, and unsurprisingly they discussed the Covid-19 pandemic, with one specific comment from Trump raising eyebrows online. Bongino brought up the recent “explosion” of Covid cases and the “reemergence of mandates,” and asked the former president what he thought. Trump answered with a hypothetical, asking Bongino to “imagine” if Trump were president while we had a “massive attack from the coronavirus,” then bragging about the development of the vaccine right before saying it was “somebody’s choice, somebody’s freedom” if they didn’t want to get it: Well, first of all, could you imagine if I were president right now and we had this massive attack from the coronavirus, you know, now they like to call it, they have new names and they have other new names, but it’s exactly what we had, we had the same thing. If that were me, they would say ‘what a horrible thing, what a horrible job.’ These are numbers in some cases that are equivalent to what it was, but we don’t...
    A new poll done by Morning Consult has found that nearly a fifth of workers surveyed would quit their jobs if COVID-19 vaccines or masks were required.  Would you quit your job if vaccines or masks were mandated? Take Our Poll
    President Joe Biden said Tuesday that unvaccinated Americans are “not nearly as smart” as those who’ve received the jab, amid the possibility that his administration mandates vaccines for all federal employees. Biden decided to call out unvaccinated Americans when asked whether he’d consider instituting a mask and vaccine mandate across federal agencies. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced its own vaccine mandate Monday. “That’s under consideration right now, but if you’re not vaccinated, you’re not nearly as smart as I thought you were,” the president said. (RELATED: Psaki Won’t Say Whether Biden Favors Implementing Restrictions For Unvaccinated Americans) Biden is reportedly expected to announce Thursday that all federal employees receive vaccines or submit to regular testing and measures to prevent the spread of the virus, according to CNN, citing an unnamed source. A new Axios/Ipsos poll released Wednesday morning found that 30% of Republicans are “not very likely” to get the vaccine while 45% are “not at all likely” to get the jab. Democrats were only 33% “very or somewhat likely to get vaccinated.” Meanwhile, 45% of Independents...
    President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that mandating vaccines for all federal employees is under consideration. The CDC announced new mask guidance, recommending that vaccinated people mask up in areas with a substantial covid-19 transmission. The spread of the Delta variant has led to a rise in cases across the country. Following that announcement, a reporter asked the president, “Will you require all federal employees to get vaccinated?” “That’s under consideration right now, but if you’re not vaccinated, you’re not nearly as smart as I thought you were,” he responded. The president made these comments at the ODNI, where hed just praised members of the intelligence community for being smart and said, "But if youre not vaccinated, youre not nearly as smart as I thought you were." https://t.co/UPZgIvV5fZ — Jennifer Epstein (@jeneps) July 27, 2021 “The more we learn about this virus and the Delta variation, the more we have to be worried and concerned,” Biden continued. “And only one thing we know for sure, if those other hundred million people got vaccinated, we would be in a...

    Joe Biden isn't being tough enough on Russian President Vladimir Putin, critics claim after a new cyber attack by Kremlin-linked hackers hit up to 1 million companies and demanded $70 million in cryptocurrency to fix it. The president told his Russian counterpart last month that he would take action against hacking groups that target the U.S., and on Saturday told reporters that he will retaliate against the ransomware attack. 'This marks a serious escalation just weeks after Putin-Biden summit on ransomware,' New York Times cybersecurity reporter Nicole Perlroth tweeted Saturday. 'Not only is this a supply chain attack on MSPs,' she continued, 'they broke in via a zero day, a significant advance for REVil which has traditionally compromised victims through usual means of phishing, etc.' Biden has instructed the FBI to launch an investigation into the hack, but insists that he and the intelligence community are still 'not sure who' is behind the cyberattack.  In mid-June, Biden held a bilateral meeting in Geneva where he gave Putin a list of 16 critical infrastructure entities that are 'off limits.' Those entities...
    Screenshot via ABC News. West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) appeared on ABC News’ This Week with Martha Raddatz to talk about his state’s rollout of the Covid-19 vaccines, noting that while his state was among those offering lottery-type prizes to encourage vaccinations, he worried about the “death lottery” that still put the unvaccinated at risk. During the early phases of the vaccine rollout, West Virginia was one of the best — in February, they were second only to Alaska. Since then, unfortunately, the pace has lagged. As ABC News reported, only 56.1 % of West Virginian adults have received at least one dose of a Covid-18 vaccine, compared to nearly 67% nationally. The problem is worse with younger people. “We’re having a hard time getting them across the finish line and getting them vaccinated,” Justice told Raddatz about the “challenge” of convincing young people to get the shot. Justice acknowledged that there had been vaccine hesitancy in red states, “but they’re not thinking right.” “Do you really think those people who aren’t vaccinated — who as you said...
    According to reports, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) hired a private investigator to track down his colleague Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) to serve him a lawsuit for what Swalwell claimed responsibility for the Capitol riot on January 6. Swalwell has been unable to employ the aid of federal marshals to serve the suit because D.C. District Court Judge Amit Mehta cited separation of power concerns. Brooks, a Republican candidate in Alabama’s 2022 U.S. Senate race, insisted during an interview with Mobile, AL radio FM Talk 106.5 he was not avoiding Swalwell. He also pointed that as a candidate for U.S. Senate, he has made dozens of public appearances throughout his home state of Alabama. “The lawsuit is pure politics,” he said. “Any attorney worth his salt would have had me served long ago. Keep in mind that under the law, it is the plaintiff’s job to serve the defendant. The defendant doesn’t have to go searching for a lawsuit. And today, they have failed to serve me. And this idea that I’m hiding out somehow — that’s absurd. You’ve seen me publicly....
    If we could turn back time – by even a year – the sight of Princes William and Harry walking side by side behind their beloved Grandpa's coffin at his funeral on Saturday would have been both heart-rending and heart-warming. A nation would remember the day nearly a quarter of a century ago that these once inseparable boys followed in the wake of their mother Diana's coffin – united forever, we thought, in grief and loss and love. An unbreakable bond. Yet break that bond has. It has been shattered by Harry's swift and unexpected departure from his royal duties to live in the US, and by the incendiary interview he and his wife gave to Oprah Winfrey in California as 'Grandpa' lay gravely ill in hospital. There is hope now of reconciliation between William and Harry, with many believing that the duke's death will grant them the common ground to rebuild their once rock-solid relationship; that this funeral will bring Diana's once inseparable sons together again, just as she would have wished. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during...
    IF YOU accidentally received a stimulus check for a dead person, you're required to send that money back to the IRS. Millions of Americans have received the third round of stimulus checks this month as part of the $1.9 trillion American Relief Act, but some may have accidentally received an extra check from those died. 2Some people may have received an additional check for a deceased personCredit: Getty The IRS warns that any checks received for family members or others who died before January 1, 2021 must be returned to the agency. The $1,400 checks were sent out to those who may have passed away before the new year, therefore rendering the checks illegally sent out. That's because the stimulus checks are meant to be an advanced credit for your 2021 tax return. Some widows and widowers may have received the extra checks because they filed a joint tax return in 2020. 2The IRS asks people to return the additional fundsCredit: Getty The IRS asks the surviving spouse to return the additional payment, saying the spouse should have...
    SOME 130million Americans have now had their $1,400 stimulus check drop into their bank account as part of Joe Biden's $1.9trillion Covid relief package. But those who have not yet received their payment or have been short-changed have been left feeling frustrated. 2Around 300million Americans have received their stimulus checksCredit: Getty 2Those having issues with their payment have been told not to call the IRSCredit: AP People having issues with their stimulus check or who have not yet received it are being told not to call the Internal Revenue Service as there are other ways to resolve problems. The IRS website says: "Our phone assistors don't have information beyond what's available on IRS.gov." The first port of call should be to check the IRS Get My Payment tool - especially it if's to find out where your cash is. The system will ask you for your Social Security Number, date of birth, address and ZIP code. This time around, the IRS tracking tool does not allowed users to add direct deposit information, meaning checks may have bounced back if sent to closed...
    You Betcha has released another home run video. The popular entertainment company recently released “If Dads Were Influencers,” and I can promise you don’t want to miss it. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) If you only watch one funny video today, make it this one. You’re going to be in stitches. I truly don’t know how You Betcha does it. Everything the company posts is absolutely hilarious, and this one is among their best. The dude just lampooned Instagram and online influencers. Is there any group of people who would hate influencers more than Midwestern dads? I think the answer to that is a firm no. I would love to see my dad’s reaction to watching influencer videos. He’d probably take the computer outside and shoot it. Influencer culture is fine if you’re actually famous. If you have millions and millions of followers, people are clearly interested. Unfortunately, every woman with a few thousands seems to think they’re one phone call away from being the next big thing in Hollywood. It’s honestly sad...
    ANDREW Cuomo accuser Lyndsey Boylan has claimed the New York governor told her he would "mount" her if he was a dog. Boylan, who used to work for Cuomo, 63, as an aide, was the first woman to accuse him of sexual harassment. 5Lyndsey Boylan claimed Andrew Cuomo told her he would 'mount' her if he was a dog. Pictured: Cuomo and his dog CaptainCredit: AP 5Boylan used to work for Cuomo as an aideCredit: Getty She first made her claims in December, and has now added more detail about the alleged incident in 2018. She told the New Yorker that Cuomo's pet dog Captain jumped up on her, and Cuomo then said if he was a dog he would "mount" her as well. Boylan said: "I remember being grossed out but also, like, what a dumb third-grade thing to say. "He would find a way to touch me in passing. He frequently stared at my legs." She said Cuomo had a dartboard at his governor's mansion with the face of New York mayor Bill de Blasio on it. Boylan...
    Andrew Cuomo accuser Lyndsey Boylan has leveled fresh allegations about the New York governor, claiming he said he would 'mount her'.  Boylan, a former Cuomo aide, was the first woman to accuse the Democrat of sexually harassment on Twitter in December. She revealed more about her allegations and her experience with the governor in a Medium post in late February.  Now she has spoken with The New Yorker in more detail about her claims, sharing an alleged incident where she says the governor's pet dog Captain jumped up near her. Boylan says Cuomo told her if he were a dog he would 'mount' her too. She added: 'I remember being grossed out but also, like, what a dumb third-grade thing to say.' She also says he had a Bill de Blasio dartboard at his governor's mansion.     Cuomo is facing allegations that he sexually harassed or behaved inappropriately toward six women, including several former staffers in his administration.  The accusations range from groping under a woman's shirt and planting unwanted kisses to asking unwelcome personal questions about sex and dating. The Democratic governor...
    A THIRD stimulus check could be making its way to Americans in just weeks - but not everyone will receive the eagerly awaited funds. After Joe Biden's $1.9trillion relief package was passed in the House, it needs to be approved by the Senate before details of exactly who will get the $1,400 stimulus payments are finalised. 4Some people may be ineligible to receive the third round paymentCredit: Getty Images - Getty But according to advice published by CNET, some people may be ineligible to receive the third round payment, while other factors could result in individual payments being much smaller. The IRS is hoping to create a formula to calculate how much of the maximum $1,400 each American will receive. But even something as small as filing your taxes early, or waiting until later, could change the outcome of your stimulus payment. The formula would rely on adjusted gross income (AGI) and would be based on a number of factors. Those who earn up to $75,000 a year and couples who earn up to $150,000 a year would be eligible for the full payments...
