    Praise for the United States men's national team continued to trickle through the soccer media after the team's 0-0 draw with a more talented England squad. Gregg Berhalter's team clinched a point against one of the tournament's favorites, England, after shutting out The Three Lions in a goalless stalemate at the World Cup in Qatar on Black Friday.  The USA impressed against the Three Lions and arguably had the better chances with Christian Pulisic smashing a strike against the crossbar in a gripping affair at the Qatar World Cup. The USMNT earned itself a confidence boosting point in their 0-0 draw against England The US dominate with Christian Pulisic even hitting the crossbar with a chance to lead ESPN's Herculez Gomez - a former USMNT international - offered praise to the team on the Futbol Americas show with co-host Sebastian Salazar. 'There's results and then there's performance,' Gomez said. 'You can get a result, doesn't necessarily mean you had a great performance. They had a great performance.

    An argument can be made that the most impressive throw by a Chicago Bears player Sunday came with 1 minute, 5 seconds remaining, a 40-yard bomb launched near Soldier Field’s south end zone. The throw came from a linebacker — why not? — during a stoppage of play immediately after the game’s biggest moment. With his adrenaline pumping after a clutch interception, Roquan Smith wound up and heaved the football deep into the seats, aware that his Bears were moments away from defeating the Houston Texans 23-20 on a walk-off, chip-shot field goal. “I tried to stop him,” safety Eddie Jackson said. “That’s a game-winning pick. You’ve got to keep that!” Smith, though, didn’t need the football as much as he needed an emotional release. So he let it fly. “To all my supporters,” he said with a big smile. “I threw that to all of them. And (I was) saying ‘F you’ to all that don’t.” Yes, Chicago, your majorly flawed but still feisty Bears are 2-1, outlasting the winless Texans in such a Bears-like way, with Smith and...
    NBA Hall-of-Famer Shaquille O’Neal is sending his Big Chicken franchise to South Florida, with a blitz of fast-casual restaurants set to open across the tricounty area in 2022 and 2023. All told, the fried-chicken franchise founded by the basketball icon in 2018 inked a deal for 45 franchises in Florida, with Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach slated to open first. New storefront leases are “days away” from being signed with future outposts destined for Miami, Tampa, Orlando and Fort Myers. No addresses have been announced yet. An ode to the favorite flavors of the former Miami Heat player’s childhood — mac and cheese and chicken wings — Big Chicken slings fried-chicken sandwiches with many toppings. There’s the Big & Sloppy with mac and cheese, fried onions; the Big Aristotle (muenster cheese, fried onions, Memphis-style barbecue sauce); and the Shaq Attack (pepper jack, jalapeño slaw, spicy chipotle barbecue sauce). The menu also features tenders, sliders and milkshakes. Sides include Cheez-It-crusted mac-n’-cheese, jalapeño slaw and sweet potato French fries.

    Call it a marriage of inconvenience. But also call it the right decision for the 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo. The 49ers didn’t want Garoppolo to be on the team for this season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have made that abundantly clear over the last 18 months. Garoppolo didn’t want to be new starting quarterback Trey Lance’s backup, either. That’s why he and his agent went searching for a trade and a team to make him their starting quarterback this past offseason. But neither party was able to make happen what they wanted. No one wanted Garoppolo, and the 49ers didn’t want to lose him and receive nothing in return. With both parties left empty-handed and lacking good options, they decided the best move was to stay together for one more year. Garoppolo and the 49ers agreed to a restructured contract that will keep the quarterback on the team’s roster — as Trey Lance’s backup — for one more season on Monday. Yes, the 49ers botched their way into the prudent play — one that neither...
    Three Arizona parents were arrested following their attempts to enter a locked-down elementary school and protect their children after reports that an armed man was seen trying to enter the building. Officers in El Mirage, Arizona, used a Taser gun to subdue two parents helping a third parent whose handgun fell to the ground as he was being taken into custody outside Thompson Ranch Elementary School, a police report said. One of the two parents was taken to a local hospital to treat Taser injuries.  At the time of the confrontation between parents and police, officers had confirmed that there was no longer a threat, a 'suspicious package' had been removed and determined to be free of explosives, and police were working to reunite parents with their children, Lt. Jimmy Chavez said in a statement. The parents tried to enter the school while it was still on lockdown, and their attempted entry while 'forcefully pushing on the officers trying to get on campus' violated law enforcement and school procedures, Chavez added. Officers in El Mirage, Arizona, used a Taser gun...
    IKEA shoppers fought their way past security guards trying to hem them into the store after one person came into contact with a Covid patient. Video shows guards struggling to hold people behind double-doors leading to the Xuhui district of Shanghai before the crowd breaks past them and rushes through the opening.  A six-year-old boy had tested positive after returning to Shanghai from Lhasa in Tibet, Shanghai Health Commission deputy director Zhao Dandan said on Sunday. One of the customers in the store had come into contact with the boy, prompting authorities to rush to close it down and lock the rest of the shoppers inside. Health officials are under pressure to enforce China's 'zero-Covid' policy which places residents into quarantine if an online app says they came into contact with someone who tested positive. Tens of millions of Chinese citizens were placed into strict lockdown earlier in the year.

    In this article CMGA White Castle team member next to Miso Robotics' Flippy.Courtesy: Miso RoboticsBefore the end of this year, a brand-new pizza purveyor plans to hit the Los Angeles area. But this isn't just another pizza place. This company plans to serve pizza from trucks and the pies themselves are put together not by humans but by robotics developed by former engineers from SpaceX. The machine can produce a pizza every 45 seconds. Benson Tsai, who founded Stellar Pizza in 2019 along with fellow SpaceX engineers Brian Lagone and James Wahawisan, got about two dozen former SpaceX employees to build a touchless pizza-making machine that fits in the back of a truck.  Stellar isn't the first company to conceive of robot-made pizza, and the early track record for the business model includes one notable failure. Softbank-backed Zume Pizza, which was once valued at $4 billion, shuttered its robot pizza delivery business in January 2020 and has since pivoted to making compostable packaging.VIDEO13:1913:19These robots turn waste into compostable packagingTechEntrepreneurs are not giving up on the robot pizza concept, and they are...
    A Florida sheriff says a homeowner will 'absolutely not' face charges after he shot at least two home invaders during a harrowing burglary.  Escambia County Sheriff's Office released footage from a Ring camera that shows the suspected home invaders pushing their way into the Pensacola home July 7, after the homeowner answers the door. The homeowner, who cannot be seen on camera, and who was not named, was armed with a pistol. But he dropped it during the scuffle, deputies said. He then ran to the back of his house where he grabbed another firearm and began shooting.  An explosion of gunfire is heard on the video and the three suspects are seen fleeing away from the house and over to a vehicle where a fourth suspect, who appeared to be armed, was waiting and they drove off. Da'Torrance Hackworth, 20, and Antonio Dewayne Dean Jr., 18, were arrested and face home invasion and illegal gun possession charges.   A third suspect, Joseph Roman Sanders, 18, is still on the run, and deputies are still looking to identify the fourth suspect....

    The Chicago White Sox tried to celebrate the Fourth of July by declaring their independence from the rules of baseball, but they found out the hard way the rules still apply to them. Chicago had just drawn even with the Twins 2-2 in the bottom of the seventh and were looking to take the lead with men on first and second and no outs. Jose Abreu flied out to deep right-center, which meant the White Sox would have the go-ahead run on third after Adam Engel tagged from second base to advance to third. But it didn’t happen. Instead, what happened were two boneheaded base-running blunders on the same play working in tandem to create the perfect storm for the stupidest triple play in Major League Baseball history. Here is the dumbest triple play in MLB history. White Sox had 1st and 2nd with nobody out in the 7th tied 2-2. Abreu flied to center, but Engel and Moncada advanced without tagging up for some reason. Urshela tags out Moncada, steps on 2nd to get Engel for an 8-5 triple...
    A bystander caught the moment 11 thugs smashed their way into a Los Angeles-area jewelry store and made off with handfuls of loot.  According to a statement from the Manhattan Beach Police Department, the robbery took place around 7:00 pm at Pasha Fine Jewelry on Manhattan Beach Boulevard in wealthy, laid back beach community on the outskirts of Los Angeles.  Authorities referred to the crime as a 'smash and grab' robbery.  As the video begins, you can see  at least two of the robbers rifling through the store's window display. In the background, you can see the other robbers frantically running through the store, smashing display cases with hammers.   After 12 seconds, the robbers, clad in ski masks and predominantly wearing dark clothing, begin to make their exit one-by-one. The group sprints across the street and in to three waiting cars. One of the group appears to drop something and stops to pick it up before getting to his car. The thugs then speed away heading southbound away from the scene.  The cars are a gold-colored Infiniti sedan, a black...
    No 'stand your ground' law Kenneth Gray — a senior lecturer at the University of New Haven and a former FBI agent — told WTIC that Connecticut does not have a "stand your ground" law, which means the victim of a threat must first try to get away before using deadly force. "You are justified in using self-defense to include a firearm if you fear for your life or the life of a third person, but it's not totally unrestricted," Gray added to the station. "By that I mean if the person is threatening you, you can use deadly force. But if you have other options — for instance, if you can run away — you have to run away." Caruso added to WTIC that police are characterizing the shooting "as a home invasion type incident where two males came into the home. And it appears to be a case of self-defense at this time, where the homeowner was a legal owner of the firearm." Anything else? Hartford Public Schools released a statement regarding the...
    For those unacquainted or unconcerned about the $84 billion industry of hitting a miniature sphere into a 4-and-a-quarter-inch hole with a flag sticking out of it, be a sport and spare a moment. Consider the significance P.G. Wodehouse presciently attached to a multimillionaire squadron of skilled country club icons this week abandoning America’s lucrative PGA Tour for a fatter payday on Saudi Arabia’s breakaway series of golf tournaments called the LIV Tour. “To find a man’s true character,” said the beloved British author, “play golf with him.” Now we have a much better idea of some of these golfers’ true characters. As the oil-price shock summer comes to the U.S., Saudi Arabia is taking its first swing at using the kingdom’s petroleum profits to fund a hostile takeover of one of America’s favorite pastimes. For the uninitiated, the most recognizable fixture at the tee box is the Par Aide Master Ball Washer. The hand-operated contraption is necessary because a golfer’s balls get dirty, as has the reputation of Saudi Arabia. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s cleansing solution is the age-old...
    Conservatives continue to use so-called 'parental rights' bills as a weapon against LGTBQ people. School and community libraries have become a major target for Republican state lawmakers in the past few months as conservative individuals and groups continue working to force libraries to remove books they say are inappropriate for kids. The books targeted for removal, including "Gender Queer: A Memoir" by Maia Kobabe and "All Boys Aren't Blue: A Memoir-Manifesto" by George M. Johnson, often focus on the experiences of LGBTQ people and of Black people, Indigenous people, and people of color, sometimes abbreviated BIPOC.  As school and community librarians have resisted calls to remove books, sometimes at great professional cost, state lawmakers have introduced bills that require library books to meet certain "community standards," allow parents to review which books their kids check out of a school library, and give local political leaders more control over the county library board. Arizona, Kentucky, and Oklahoma have enacted legislation that regulates libraries over the opposition of LGBTQ advocacy and librarian groups. The bills fall in the category of legislation covering so-called "parental rights"...
    This is the shocking moment a female thief pepper sprays a jewelry store worker in the face before her gang steals thousands of dollars worth of watches. The woman, who has not been named, marches up to the employee and showers her in the liquid at Pollack Jewelers in Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise, Florida. Two others then smash their way into the cabinets before looting the precious products that may have included Rolexes and Cartiers. The two workers in the store at the time have since quit because they are too terrified to return. Police said they are investigating as they offered $5,000 for information leading to an arrest.

    Meghan and Harry were keen to show confidence on their return to the spotlight in the Netherlands, a body language expert has claimed. Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, arrived to cheers and applause at the Invictus Games in the Netherlands on Friday - with their Netflix film crew in tow to capture every moment.

    We’ve got robots that can skateboard, robots going to outer space, robots with human-like skin, and now robots that can… inch around like an earthworm. Scientists at Stanford and the Ohio State University banded together to create an origami-inspired tiny robotic crawler that shuffles around just like a tiny worm and looks so absolutely adorable doing so. But this robot has loftier goals than just looking cute and feeling cute. As explained in a new study published March 30 in the journal Science Advances, the researchers constructed their crawler with flexible cylindrical units and a magnetic field that work to propel the yellow and blue robot forward through the repetitive movement of folding and expanding on itself. The aim is to one day use the man-made earthworm for exploration in confined spaces impossible for humans to navigate—especially for diagnostic medical procedures or to store and release vital medications within the human body. The researchers borrowed techniques from a particular origami design called the Kresling pattern. It’s something you can actually make on your own: If you take a hollow...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: We’ve lived in our house for 17 years and the neighbors behind us have always been renters. I’ve only met the owner once, when our mutual fence blew over in a windstorm. He set up a contractor to replace the fence; I offered to pay for half of it, which he declined. The problem is, there’s an apple tree that was planted too close to the property line before we moved in. This tree has never been properly pruned by an arborist, the renters or the landlord. Every year when the apples ripen, approximately 50 to 75 apples drop on our side of the fence for several weeks. I go out every day and throw the apples back over the fence so my dog doesn’t eat them. These apples also bring unwanted raccoons and porcupines to our yard, both of which could be harmful to our dog. Is it petty of me to throw the apples back over the fence? GENTLE READER: Don’t you like apple pie? Or apple fritters? Or apple dumplings? If not, why not...

    Three women who were targeted by a violent serial squatter have spoken out about their horrific experiences with the seemingly-charming man - who went on to murder his own brother in a fit of rage after destroying the lives of dozens of victims. Jamison Bachman, from Pennsylvania, would rent a room in people's homes - often using a fake name and pretending to be a lawyer - only to then go out of his way to make their lives a nightmare by destroying their property, moving and touching their personal belongings, and refusing to pay rent.  The 'serial squatter' would often make up a back story - like a family member being sick or his old house being destroyed - to explain why he needed a place to live, and would start by posing as the perfect roommate - coming off as neat, polite, and well-educated. However, after a few days of living together, he would turn into a terror - doing whatever he could to make his roommates unhappy, like stealing their lightbulbs and purposely clogging the toilet with cat...

The Phoenix Suns have been winning a lot lately — their 10-point win over the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday night brought their current win streak to 11 games, the longest active streak in the league. And looking at their schedule, it’s easy to imagine this streak stretching on for a bit. Per 538’s single-game win probabilities, the Suns’ odds of coming back from this four-game road trip with their win streak intact are about 7.3 percent. But if they can pull that off, they’d then be facing a stretch of nine consecutive games where they’d be favored and in only two of those games would they have a win probability of less than 82 percent — hosting the Bucks on Feb. 10 (69 percent) and the Jazz on Feb. 27 (69 percent). The next time they wouldn’t be favored in a game, per 538’s model, would be March 6 in Milwaukee. All that is to...
    Ash sent spewing into the air from the massive underwater volcanic eruption in Tonga has been photographed by astronauts on the International Space Station. NASA shared the remarkable pictures taken out of the ISS Cupola windows, showing a blanket of ash from plumes spewing thousands of feet into the atmosphere. The massive volcano erupted on January 15, creating a 'massive explosion' that happens once in every thousand years, and is large enough to be visible from space. It triggered a 7.4 magnitude earthquake, sending tsunami waves crashing into the island, leaving it covered in ash and cut off from outside help. The event was so striking that satellites captured the moment of the eruption, with astronauts on the ISS taking images of plumes and blankets of ash over the region.  The pictures were taken by NASA astronaut Kayla Barron as the station made a pass over New Zealand, looking down from 253 miles above the Earth.

    Two burglars smashed their way into a cellphone store in an Emerson shopping center overnight, then fled with $6,000 worth of equipment, authorities said. Security video captured images of the pair, who threw a stone through the T-Mobile store's glass door at the ShopRite shopping center on Old Hook Road to get in around 2 a.m. Sunday. "They were literally in and out in a minute," Emerson Police Chief Michael Mazzeo said. Westwood police joined their Emerson colleagues at the scene. An alert also was broadcast to area law enforcement. Detectives were pursuing leads with help from the Bergen County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification, which collected evidence, the chief said. Meanwhile, he asked that anyone who might have seen something or has security footage or information that could help identify the bandits call Emerson police at (201) 262-2800.
              by Sebastian Hughes   Chinese spies infiltrated Taiwan’s military as a part of a campaign to undermine the island’s defense, Reuters reported. The effort involved recruiting senior officers at the center of the Taiwan’s armed forces, even reaching President Tsai Ing-wen’s security detail, Reuters reported. A retired presidential security officer and a serving military police lieutenant colonel in the unit had convictions upheld this year for leaking sensitive information about her security to Beijing. “China is conducting a very targeted infiltration effort towards Taiwan,” retired Taiwanese navy Lieutenant Commander Lu Li-shih told Reuters.

    Vice President Kamala Harris slammed the 'racist' defense of Ahmaud Arbery's killers after all three men were found guilty of murder on Wednesday.  All three defendants in the Ahmaud Arbery trial were found guilty of murdering the black jogger in February 2020 on Wednesday, prompting celebrations in the streets of Georgia.  'These verdicts send an important message, but the fact remains that we still have work to do,' the vice president said.  'The defense counsel chose to set a tone that cast the attendance of ministers at the trial as intimidation and dehumanized a young Black man with racist tropes. The jury arrived at its verdicts despite these tactics.' She said after the verdict: 'Still, we feel the weight of grief. Ahmaud Arbery should be alive, and nothing can take away the pain that his mother Wanda Cooper-Jones, his father Marcus Arbery, and the entire Arbery family and community feel today. I share in that pain.' Meanwhile, President Biden said the Ahmaud Arbery killing was a 'devastating reminder' of racial injustice in the US, but that the guilty verdict shows the 'justice...

    BOSTON -- Two wealthy parents were convicted Friday of buying their kids' way into school as athletic recruits in the first case to go to trial in the college admissions cheating scandal that embroiled prestigious universities across the country.Gamal Abdelaziz, a former casino executive, and John Wilson, a former Staples Inc. executive, were found guilty after about 10 hours of deliberations in the case that exposed a scheme to get undeserving applicants into college by falsely portraying them as star athletes.Abdelaziz, of Las Vegas, was charged with paying $300,000 to get his daughter into the University of Southern California as a basketball recruit even though she didn't even make it onto her high school's varsity team. Wilson, who heads a Massachusetts private equity firm, was accused of paying $220,000 to have his son designated as a USC water polo recruit and an additional $1 million to buy his twin daughters' ways into Harvard and Stanford.Lawyers for the pair argued they believed their payments were legitimate donations and pointed the finger at the admissions consultant at the center of the scheme,...
    A Virginia cop's rapid reflexes helped save the life of a fellow officer after he pulled her away from a skidding car that crossed the median and crashed into her cruiser. Officer Jessica McGraw of the Gate City Police Department was responding to an accident on Highway 23, about six miles from the Tennessee border, Sunday evening. She asked for help confirming the status of one of the driver's licenses, and Officer Matthew Stewart answered the call. As they discussed the case off the side of the road, Stewart quickly grabbed onto a surprised McGraw and pulled her away from her patrol SUV, according to 13-second dash cam footage. A white sedan then pummels the side of the larger police vehicle, which is pushed back and misses both officers by a hair.

    Aides to former President Donald Trump referred to his daughter Ivanka as 'the princess,' according to a new tell-all book – which describes Ivanka Trump's efforts to insinuate herself into a meeting with the Queen in 2019. Former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham includes the detail in her new book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now – a title that references her failure to hold a press briefing during her tenure. Grisham, who went on to serve as first lady Melania Trump's top aide, writes that Melania also referred to Ivanka by the name.  Ivanka, who served as an unpaid senior advisor to the president, regularly referred to him as 'my father' in meetings, she writes. Ivanka sometimes used the term in public.

    Lee Habeeb, the host of Our American Stories, vice president of content for the Salem Radio Network, and Newsweek columnist, said on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow that Dr. Anthony Fauci uses shame and unwarranted conviction in attempting to convince Americans to accept coronavirus vaccinations. Habeeb described the use of “shame and certainty” as reminiscent of religious exploitations. “[Using] shame and certainty are what angry clerics do,” he said. “This is the role of mullahs, or the church when it used to shame people into submission and just make their lives miserable.” He added, “I would have a heart attack if Fauci were to come on and say the latest study about masks says that surgical masks reduce death rates 11 percent — by the way, give the number: 11 percent, right? — and the cloth masks we’re wearing, all bets are off, that’s really not working.” “I’d have a heart attack if [Fauci] were honest,” he continued. “I’d have a heart attack if he qualified things, if he showed humility. It’s the...
    The first trial in the 'Operation Varsity Blues' college admissions scandal began in Boston on Monday, with a federal prosecutor accusing two high-powered businessmen of paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to secure spots for their children at the University of Southern California. Former Las Vegas casino executive Gamal Aziz, 64, and private equity firm founder John Wilson, 62, are charged with paying bribes as part of a sweeping scheme involving California college admissions consultant William 'Rick' Singer, who previously pleaded guilty.  In her opening statement, Assistant US Attorney Leslie Wright told a federal jury in Boston that the defendants tried to pass off their children as athletic recruits with Singer's help.  Wilson's defense attorney argued that his client 'did nothing illegal' and laid all the blamed on Singer, whom he described as 'one of the great con men of our time.'  Prosecutors have said Singer masterminded the plot to help his wealthy clients get their children into elite schools through fraud and bribery. Former Wynn Resorts executive Gamal Abdelaziz (left), and private equity firm founder John Wilson (right),...

    Some Massachusetts residents want happy hour back Fake vaccine cards threaten universities vaccine mandates SAITAMA, Japan — It was the perfect moment. As Sue Bird was recalling the cockiness Diana Taurasi had when she arrived at the University of Connecticut decades ago, Taurasi was swigging champagne directly from the bottle. If anything had changed in 21 years, it was impossible to tell.  In public at least, Bird always says the right thing, and Taurasi, well, she can be a little sarcastic. On the court, according to Team USA coach Dawn Staley, Bird has more to say, but when Taurasi talks it’s always from the heart. On Sunday, these two women won their fifth Olympic gold medal as the United States beat Japan 90-75, a testament to their greatness, leadership and longevity. And they did it together, something they've been doing for over two decades. Bird was a junior at UConn when Taurasi arrived in 2000, and their first championship together came the next year, when the Huskies went 39-0 en route to the NCAA title. In the years since,...
    There is a civil war brewing within the Republican Party in Nevada. According to The Las Vegas Sun, tensions began to rise when members of the Clark County Republican Party (CCRP) expressed concern about the state party's director Michael McDonald who is accused of recruiting members of the far-right group The Proud Boys to run for public office. The move was reportedly an effort to increase the extremist presence in the state's political party. On July 20, CCRP members held a meeting to select officers. However, that meeting was interrupted when individuals affiliated with The Proud Boys crashed it. The publication offered a clear depiction of how the scene erupted. "It was an ugly scene with echoes of the Jan. 6 riot, except instead of Big Lie insurrectionists trying to take over the Capitol, they were trying to bully their way into a takeover of the county party's moderate leadership," the publication noted. It added, "Egged on by the Proud Boy members, the crowd broke into angry chants of 'Stop the steal' and 'Let us in.' Security...
    New footage shows from Texas shows a group of at least 300 migrants pushing at gates on the U.S.-Mexico border on Monday morning, with the reporter saying that the majority eventually were allowed in. Bill Melguin, Fox News's correspondent, filmed the scenes at the Del Rio crossing, 150 miles west of San Antonio. 'A Border Patrol agent told me this was the biggest single group he’s ever seen in Del Rio & that they’re glad troopers from Florida & Nebraska were here to help man the gate with Texas troopers,' Melguin tweeted on Monday.  'Almost all ended up being let into the US.' He said that families were let through first, followed by single men. Many were taken away on buses, he said. NEW: Getting a bit hectic here in Del Rio.

    The Toronto Blue Jays helped the New York Yankees clinch their second triple play on the season due to their abysmal base-running on Thursday. The Toronto Blue Jays were hoping they could gain some ground on the New York Yankees in the AL East standings with some wins. Toronto dropped the first two games of the series, and looked to get back in the win column on Thursday night. But, they made things harder for themselves thanks to some rather awful base-running. Yankees starting pitcher Michael King got himself into an early jam after walking Marcus Semien, allowing a single to Bo Bichette and throwing a wild pitch to advance both runners to second and third. But all of those were negated after Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a ground ball to King, and the Yankees infield capitalized on the questionable decision-making by the Blue Jays on the base path. Words do not do it justice, take a look for yourself in the video below: What the what? pic.twitter.com/JLwOmo08rg — James Wagner (@ByJamesWagner) June 17, 2021 Blue jays ground into embarrassing triple...
    BOSTON (CBS) – As kids begin to return to pre-pandemic activities, the American Academy of Pediatrics is advising that kids take it slow as they return to sports. Most kids, even those who returned to in-person learning, have been much more sedentary over the past year and could be at higher risk of injury and heat-related illness. So for kids who have not been active in the past month, they suggest starting at 25% of their usual physical activity and by exercising every other day, slowly increasing week to week. They also encourage all eligible teens to get vaccinated. They say kids who are not vaccinated should continue to wear face masks during all indoor sports and that spectators and parents should also be encouraged to wear masks for indoor sports regardless of vaccination status.

    BARNEGAT BAY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – There’s a new type of jellyfish stinging its way into the back bays and rivers along the Jersey Shore.

It’s also called the clinging jellyfish. It’s a small, invasive hydrozoan, or type of jellyfish, from the Pacific,” one researcher told Elliott. Even though it’s early in the season, half way through their third net dip of the morning, they captured 40 of the tiny terrors, Elliott reported. “I think it’s important for people to know how dangerous these are, and they are in water that people swim in,” another researcher said.
