    CHRIS EUBANK, who had starved himself of food and liquid for three agonising days, stared longingly at three large jugs filled to the brim with pineapple juice. He had them put on a table close to the scales as he waited impatiently to weigh in for his WBC super-middleweight title defence against American Dan Schommer. 3Chris Eubank punches Dan Schommer after starving himself to make the weightCredit: Getty 3A dangerously dehydrated Eubank laboured to victory over the AmericanCredit: Getty After making the 12-stone limit, Eubank raced to the jugs with the speed of a desperate man who had been lost in a desert suddenly coming across a life-saving oasis. That scenario was played out in Sun City, South Africa, 28 years ago and I’ve never forgotten the sight of Chris, his body dangerously bone-dry through dehydration, gulping down all three jugs without stopping to take a breath. As a result of putting himself through such a severe weight-reducing process, his performance was well below par and he struggled...
    Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) as Federal Reserve Board Chairman Jerome Powell holds a news conference following a Fed rate announcement, in New York City, July 27, 2022.Brendan McDermid | ReutersWhat I am looking at Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022 U.S. stock futures modestly higher Thursday. Treasury yields still blowing out. Not stopping here. Is the 2- year, now over 4%, stoppable if the Federal Reserve is signaling that it might go higher? Further 1.25% rest of year to more than 4.25%? That's what the 2-year yield is telling us. New tone: No choice but pain, which implies that a recession is well within their purview. Those paid in stock are feeling it. "We have got to get inflation behind us," Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said at Wednesday's post-meeting news conference. Rates must go up to have meaningful downward pressure on inflation. Dollar? Strong Japanese intervention in foreign exchange market.

    Russia will use its largest and most-powerful nukes to defend the territory it occupies in Ukraine, a staunch ally of Vladimir Putin has insisted today. Dmitry Medvedev, who served as a stand-in for Putin from 2008 to 2012, vowed the territories will become part of Russia when referendums are held this week - after which 'any Russian weapons' will be used to defend them.  That includes 'strategic nuclear weapons' such as Putin's giant new Sarmat missile, Medvedev said, and 'weapons based on new principles' - likely a reference to hypersonic technology that the Kremlin claims is invulnerable to air defences. 'The Western establishment [and] all citizens of the NATO countries need to understand that Russia has chosen its own path. There is no way back,' he added.

    Don't say "cheese" say "poop!" for the perfect back-to-school photos, a Pennsylvania author said in a viral Tweet on Sept. 14.  Adam Perry, of Hempfield Township, is a middle-grade and children's author with such titles as "The Thieving Collectors of Fine Children's Books" and "The Magicians of Elephant County." As you can see in the photo, on the left he simply says "smile!" but then says "poop!" and he gets a more sincere smile from his son.  Most of Perry's tweets have few interactions, so he was surprised when the tweet took off getting nearly 300,000 likes as of Wednesday, Sept. 21.  He posted a PR person's dream response in a follow-up tweet "I’ve never gone viral before. Should I mention I have a spooky kids book about spirit photography out next month? There’s no poop in it, but there are ghosts, so..."

    (CNN)Donald Trump is not big on loyalty to anyone else -- with one major exception.When it comes to his immediate family -- especially his three adult children -- Trump is uncharacteristically loyal, demonstrating a fatherly pride and protectiveness that he shows to no one else in life."I have a lot of good relationships," Trump has said. "I have good enemies, too, which is okay. But I think more of my family than others."In all of his endeavors -- from his real estate business to his reality TV empire to his White House tenure -- Trump has installed his children as his deputies, a clear signal that he only really trusts the people who are related to him by blood.Consider that fact in light of the news on Wednesday that New York Attorney General Letitia James filed suit against Trump as well as his three eldest children (Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric), alleging they broke a variety of state laws including insurance fraud, the falsification of business records and false financial statements.

    New York Times senior political reporter and CNN analyst Maggie Haberman said that New York Attorney General Letitia James’ civil suit against former President Donald Trump, his three oldest children and the Trump Organization is “going to sting” more than the investigations relating to his presidency. Appearing on CNN’s Inside Politics With John King, following James’ press conference on Wednesday announcing the lawsuit, Haberman called James’ announcement of the legal action “a sweeping condemnation of Donald Trump’s business practices over a very long period of time.” Haberman continued: And remember, he didn’t just start engaging in these practices over the period of time she’s talking about. You know, he’s been in business for a long time. And I think a key point of what she is saying here, John, is there were tangible things that people could see that looked real. And he’s saying that he just massively inflated the value to turn them into something else as he was either dealing with lenders or as he was dealing banks and so forth. This is going to drag out for a...

    The View co-host Sunny Hostin criticized President Joe Biden for saying the Covid-19 pandemic “is over.” During Sunday’s 60 Minutes on CBS, Biden said that “the pandemic is over.” “We still have a problem with Covid,” he continued. “We’re still doing a lot of work on it. But the pandemic is over.” On Tuesday’s The View, Hostin blasted Biden over the declaration and said that “words matter.” Co-host Whoopi Goldberg interrupted Hostin and referenced Biden’s caveat that Covid still exists, which Hostin acknowledged. Co-host Joy Behar referenced the statistic that there have been more than 400 daily deaths recently due to Covid. Hostin cited other statistics. “The average new daily cases is 60,000. Every day, 60,000 people get Covid and that’s because only because 67.7 percent of our population in the US is fully vaccinated,” she said. “And only less than 50 percent got their first booster. “And so, again, I think if you’re telling people, ‘I don’t see any masks around here, we’re good,’ we’re going into the winter, going into the fall. We’ve been out in these streets...
    JAMES RODRIGUEZ could be about to come face-to-face with his old sparring partner Rafa Benitez at Olympiacos. Benitez is one of the names in the frame to take the vacant manager's job at the Greek giants, according to Mundo Deportivo. 1James Rodriguez failed to live up to expectations at EvertonCredit: Getty The Spaniard was Rodriguez's boss at Real Madrid and at Everton and they are said to have a fractious relationship. The Colombian playmaker arrived at Goodison Park after being signed by ex-Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti in 2020. But he spent just one year there before being sold to Qatar outfit Al-Rayyan after falling out of favour with Benitez.

    Eagle-eyed royal commentators have noted the distinct absence of Australian-born Princess Mary of Denmark at the Queen's funeral, despite her husband and tearful mother-in-law sitting in the front row by the coffin. The Danish royal family were said to be attending in full force when they made an official announcement on September 13 but six days later the 50-year-old mother-of-four was nowhere to be seen.  'HM The Queen and the Crown Prince Couple [will be] present at the State Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on 19 September 2022 at Westminster Abbey in London, Great Britain,' the statement last week said. Photos and video footage shot at the funeral showed Prince Frederik and Queen Margrethe - now the only reigning Queen left in the world - sitting opposite King Charles III and his family on Monday. But Mary wasn't beside the next heir to the Danish throne and she wasn't in the row behind them either.

    Every parent worries if they're getting the balance right for their kids. Are they getting enough sleep? How much exercise do they need? Are they spending too long in front of a screen? This month, Australian academics launched a world-first app to guide parents to the 'just right' day for their children, helping them understand which combination of activities can best help mental, physical and academic outcomes. Assessing data from 1685 children aged 11-12 from the Australian Child Health CheckPoint study, the Healthy Day App enables hypothetical adjustments to time-use behaviours to measure possible impact. Australian academics have launched a new app, the Healthy Day App, to guide parents on a balance of activities for their children that can 'best help mental, physical and academic outcomes' (stock image) Simple measures like switching an hour of screen time for one of exercise could mean 4.2 per cent lower body fat, 2.5 per cent improved wellbeing and 0.9 per cent higher academic performance according to the app, which was developed by the University of South Australia and Murdoch Children's Research Institute.

    Fresh off the first win of the Marcus Freeman era, we have to wonder if the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are even going bowling this year. A lot can change between now and Thanksgiving Weekend, but Marcus Freeman’s Notre Dame Fighting Irish are a long ways away from being College Football Playoff-caliber. The Golden Domers nearly blew it at home to the California Golden Bears on Saturday afternoon, culminating in Freeman’s first win as the Irish head coach. Entering the ballgame, Freeman was 0-3 since taking over for Brian Kelly, including a Fiesta Bowl loss to Oklahoma State last holiday season. At 1-2 on the year, we have to wonder if Notre Dame is even good enough to go 6-6… Let’s do something we never thought we would have to do and assess if the Irish will be good enough to go bowling this upcoming holiday season.Notre Dame football: After first win, are the Irish good enough to go bowling?Here is what lies ahead for the Fighting Irish in their nine remaining games.

    Newly released video from the US Military revealed that a jet pilot and his student hit a bird when their plane crashed into a Texas neighborhood last year.  The video shows the moment a jet trainer from Kingsville was flying with a student pilot on September 19, 2021, over the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth.  As birds fly overhead, one suddenly flies low and gets sucked into the jet, prompting one of the pilots to yell, 'S***,' as he braced for an emergency landing at the runway. After alarms blare out in the cockpit, however, the pilot yells, 'We're not going to make it! Standby to eject. Pull up! Pull up!'  The video cuts out just before the jet crashes into a group of homes over the nearby Lake Worth neighborhood.  New video from the US military shows that a jet pilot instructor and a student hit a bird when flying over a Texas suburb last September   The jet immediately went down behind residential homes in Lake Worth, Texas  One of the pilots was reported to be...
    Tucker Carlson on Friday night mocked the residents of Martha's Vineyard for their response to the arrival of 50 Venezuelan migrants, and pointed out that the $43,000 raised in a GoFundMe was not even going directly to those affected. The migrants were flown to the holiday island from Texas on Wednesday, on flights chartered by Florida's governor Ron DeSantis. On Friday morning, the 50 left Martha's Vineyard, bound for a Cape Cod air base which was better equipped to house them. Carlson laughed at the residents for what he saw as hysteria over the newcomers, and laughed at their efforts to help. 'It's one of the richest places in the United States and it has more available beds than any other place probably in North America right now, but it's just they can't swing it - but you can do your part by donating to the fund, and by donating the fund, they'll help the migrants,' Carlson said.  'Well, a lot of people believed it. The fund raised $40,000 - but here's the best part. You're going to love this...
    Experts have warned that Joe Biden's deal to give rail workers a pay increase to avoid major shutdowns on Friday could lead to more large settlements in the future.  The Biden administration reached a tentative deal on Thursday to raise rail employees' salaries by 24 percent, but labor experts say the deal could serve as a measure of success for future strikers.  'This is a very, very contentious time,' Michael Lotito, co-chairman of the Workplace Policy Institute at Littler, told the Wall Street Journal. 'I think that is going to embolden unions to ask for more.' The prediction comes as Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) reported that the number of strikers in the US has tripled to 78,000 in the first-half of 2022 compared to the same period last year.  Michael Lotito (left), co-chairman of the Workplace Policy Institute at Littler, warned that Joe Biden's deal to raise rail employees' salaries by 24 percent to avoid a shutdown could be used as a measure of success by future strikers  In the first half of 2022, there have been 180...

    Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay compared his teammates to a prevalent DC Comics superhero. The Philadelphia Eagles made multiple newsworthy moves this offseason to build off of their 2021 season that ended with them making it to the playoffs. The most notable of those transactions was, without a doubt, the team acquiring wide receiver AJ Brown in a trade with the Tennessee Titans. That drastically improved their wide receiver room and gave further help for quarterback Jalen Hurts. Ahead of the team’s Week 2 game against the Minnesota Vikings, Eagles cornerback Darius Slay provided some analysis of wide receivers, and it included DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, and Brown. They were all some form of the DC Comics character, Batman. “We’ve got 3 Batman’s on the team.One swole, one skinny, one fast” ???? – @bigplay24slay on AJ Brown, DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins pic.twitter.com/PYjtzTe27y — John Clark (@JClarkNBCS) September 15, 2022 Eagles: Darius Slay compares AJ Brown, DeVonta Smith, and Quez Watkins to Batman Brown is “Swole Batman.” Smith is “Skinny Batman.” Watkins is “Fast Batman.” And as he says, there...
    (CNN)The White House plans to allow the nomination process to play out for President Joe Biden's pick to be the next administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, Phil Washington, after his name emerged in a recent search warrant issued as part of a political corruption investigation in Los Angeles. The warrant -- issued earlier this month on multiple locations, including the home of Los Angeles County Supervisor for District 3 Sheila Kuehl -- sought more information related to potential favoritism in the awarding of contracts by the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority. The contracts were sole-sourced to a nonprofit run by a friend of Kuehl.The nonprofit, called Peace Over Violence, set up a sexual harassment hotline in tandem with the transit authority. A copy of the warrant posted to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department website shows that the department is seeking correspondence from several people, including Washington.Washington served as CEO of the transit authority for six years and whistleblower allegations laid out in the warrant accuse him of pushing forward sole-sourcing the contract to the nonprofit "to remain 'in...
    (CNN)Everyone -- and I mean everyone -- in the political world is looking for ways to figure out what is happening out in the country right now.Going into this summer, 2022 looked like a typical midterm election cycle -- President Joe Biden was deeply unpopular, Republicans were revved up to vote and it appeared as though Democrats were headed for major losses in the House and a loss of their Senate majority too.Then came the curve ball. The Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade appears to have effectively reset the midterm dynamic. Suddenly, Democrats are resurgent, Biden's numbers are improving and even Republicans are admitting that the ground has shifted beneath their feet.So, where the heck are we right now?The best way to answer that -- to my mind, at least -- is to look at the generic ballot question. This is a question that pollsters have been asking for a very long time and that has been, generally speaking, a very reliable weather vane to tell you which way the way the political winds are blowing.Read MoreThe...
    Few high school stadiums across the Bay Area match the big-game atmosphere that unfolds on football Fridays in Pittsburg. The lights shine bright. The band hits the right notes. The crowd is electric. It’s quite the scene when black-and-orange clad Pittsburg charges onto the field, often through a fog of smoke, as the home crowd erupts. Friday night, the energy will be soaring as the undefeated Pirates, ranked third by the Bay Area News Group, play host to Sacramento-area heavyweight Folsom. “It’s going to be fun,” Pittsburg coach Victor Galli said. “We anticipate Pirate Stadium is going to be rocking on Friday night.” No doubt about that. This is a matchup filled with stars, from Folsom’s Notre Dame-bound receiver Rico Flores to Pittsburg’s Miami-bound quarterback Jaden Rashada and Washington-bound receiver Rashid Williams. It’s a rematch of a game played last season, one in which Folsom pulled away late for a 38-17 victory. Pittsburg felt as if the home team had a significant advantage that night, given that the game was Folsom’s third of the 2021 season and Pittsburg’s first. Rashada,...

    Jesse Watters began his Fox News show on Monday with a hyperbolic monologue on President Joe Biden’s comments about “MAGA Republicans.” Biden generated outrage among conservatives with a speech he gave earlier this month in which he declared, “Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” Biden has seized on the actions of Trump and his backers after the 2020 election as evidence that his brand of Republican Party politics is beyond the pale. Specifically, after Trump lost that election, he infamously claimed – and still claims – the election was stolen from him when it wasn’t. Biden’s speech came three weeks after the FBI executed a search warrant at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence, where he took official government documents upon leaving office. Some of the material is classified, and he was supposed to give all of it to the National Archives upon leaving office. Conservatives protested that the effort to retrieve the materials was politically motivated. “Make no mistake:...
    Pro-Putin mouthpieces are beginning to admit that Russia's invasion of Ukraine 'is not going to plan' and that predictions of a quick victory were 'catastrophically wrong'. Boris Nadezhdin, an 'opposition' politician, told a debate show on state television that it is currently 'absolutely impossible' to defeat Ukraine due to Russia's 'colonial war methods'. He also called for Russia to either escalate its war efforts or resume peace talks to bring an end to the bloody war.  But while his criticism of the invasion is inevitable, Mr Nadezhdin's remarks have been backed by Kremlin mouthpieces during the political debate show. It comes amid mounting concerns from pro-government figures over a series of strong Ukrainian counterattacks that have resulted in Russian forces conceding ground in recent days. Political commentator Viktor Olevich, who traditionally backs the Kremlin, told the NTV channel on Friday: 'We’ve been told that everything is going according to plan.  'Does anyone really believe that six months ago the plan was to be leaving [the city of] Balakliya, repelling a counteroffensive in the Kharkiv region and failing to take over Kharkiv?'...

    No disrespect intended for the San Francisco 49ers, but Matt Eberflus said the message he’s preparing for his players prior to Sunday’s season opener at Soldier Field — his first as an NFL head coach — is going to be about his team. The 49ers reached the NFC championship game last season and have top-level talent at most positions, but Saturday night’s team meeting is going to be centered on the program the Bears are working to put in place with a new roster, coaching staff and front office. “To me, it’s about us,” Eberflus said. “It’s about what we’ve done to this point and we’re really going to focus on us. I know you obviously have to focus on the great players that San Francisco has and how you are going to limit them and do the best you can that way, but this all comes down to us.” Season openers haven’t been particularly kind to first-year Bears coaches. Mike Ditka’s run began 40 years ago in 1982 and six others followed him before the arrival of Eberflus —...

    Getty Gwen Stefani. In a September 7, 2022 interview with Forbes magazine, “The Voice” coach Gwen Stefani opened up about her journey to get where she is today, and her acceptance of the fact that, “you can only be new when you’re new.” When asked about whether she would be releasing new music any time soon, the former No Doubt frontwoman told Forbes, “That’s a good question and you’re tapping into something that’s my insecurity.

    An Oklahoma news anchor suffered the beginnings of a stroke on air, leaving her stumbling over her words and forced to cut the broadcast short on Saturday morning. Julie Chin, of Tulsa NBC affiliate KJRH, was delivering a story about NASA's cancelled Artemis-I launch when she suddenly found herself unable to speak the words she was reading off her teleprompter. Bewildered and stuttering, Chin tried to push ahead with the broadcast but soon found herself completely unable to speak her script aloud.   'I'm sorry, something is going on with me this morning and I apologize to everybody,' she finally said, going off script and tossing the broadcast over to the weather team, 'Let's just go ahead and send it on to meteorologist Annie Brown.' Brown seamlessly took over the broadcast as Chin could be heard trying to utter an apology off camera.  'Julie we love you so much, we love you so much,' Brown then said with a laugh as the broadcast cut to her, 'We all have those days,' Brown continued. But it wasn't just one of those days...

    Mark Payton smiled when he was asked if he grew up rooting for the Chicago White Sox. “South Side, it’s part of the life,” Payton said Friday. Payton was born in Orland Park and attended St. Rita. Growing up, he made it to as many Sox games as he could. “Parents took me all the time,” Payton said. “As much as we could get out, dad would get out of work and we’d come watch the night games. A lot of memories here as a kid.” Friday marked another day to remember for the outfielder when the Sox selected Payton’s contract from Triple-A Charlotte and he joined the team ahead of the three-game series against the Minnesota Twins at Guaranteed Rate Field. “This is awesome,” he said. “Going to be special. Something I’ve always thought about as a kid coming to games. And getting a chance to go out and play here is going to be pretty cool.” The Sox also placed center fielder Luis Robert on the paternity list and transferred reliever Aaron Bummer to the 60-day injured list....
    It’s impossible to make a list of musical provocateurs without Madonna immediately springing to mind. The pop star was burning crosses long before Demi Lovato was laying atop them on their album cover. She was famous for being Italian before Lady Gaga could ever utter the words “I’m Italian” in every interview. She paved the way for Addison Rae, which is a lovely rhyme but also a true fact—there would be no TikTok dance crazes if Madonna didn’t help make choreography an essential part of pop stardom. But recent years have seen Madonna more reclusive. After the release of her last album, Madame X, in 2019, the icon faded back behind our screens during the pandemic, becoming as famous for her constant Instagram shapeshifting as she was for her decades of chart-topping hits. One could consider this part of Madonna’s landscape of career transformations—after traversing nearly every musical genre over four decades, maybe the only way to keep us guessing was to be an alien one day and part of a movie theater janitorial staff the next. If you wanted...
    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Wednesday defended the administration's record on border security and its efforts to prevent illegal drugs entering the country from Mexico. It came as she pressed on warnings that brightly-colored 'rainbow fentanyl' was being brought in to target children and younger users. 'The fact that we are securing the border, the fact that we are securing record levels of funding from [the Department of Homeland Security] so they can stop illicit drugs from entering into the country, the fact that it's not just drug traffickers that we're dealing with, as well we're stopping stopping financiers ... ' said Jean-Pierre. 'This is what's happening under this administration.'  A day earlier the Drug Enforcement Administration warned Americans to be on the look-out for an 'emerging trend of colorful fentanyl.' 'Rainbow fentanyl—fentanyl pills and powder that come in a variety of bright colors, shapes, and sizes—is a deliberate effort by drug traffickers to drive addiction amongst kids and young adults,' said DEA Administrator Anne Milgram.  'The men and women of the DEA are relentlessly working to stop the...

    (CNN)Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts on Sunday slammed Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell for suggesting interest rates should go up to combat inflation in the US, saying he could "tip this economy into recession.""I am very worried about this because the causes of inflation -- things like the fact that Covid is still shutting down parts of the economy around the world, that we still have supply chain kinks, that we still have a war going on in Ukraine that drives up the cost of energy, and that we still have these giant corporations that are engaging in price gouging," Warren told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union.""There is nothing in raising the interest rates, nothing in Jerome Powell's tool bag, that deals directly with those, and he has admitted as much in congressional hearings when I've asked him about it," the senator continued, adding: "Do you know what's worse than high prices and a strong economy? It's high prices and millions of people out of work.""I'm very worried that the Fed is going to tip this...
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Sunday she is 'very worried' about an impending recession after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell hinted interest rates will tip even higher in hawkish remarks on Friday.  'I'm very worried that the Fed is going to tip this economy into recession,' the Massachusetts Democrat told CNN's Dana Bash.  'The causes of inflation, things like the fact that COVID is still shutting down parts of the economy around the world, that we still have supply chain kinks, that we still have a war going on in Ukraine that drives up the cost of energy, and that we still have these giant corporations that are engaging in price gouging, there is nothing in raising the interest rates, nothing in Jerome Powell's tool bag that deals directly with those,' Warren added.  'Do you know what's worse than high prices and a strong economy?

    A former prosecutor who assisted in the Mueller investigation into Donald Trump says he believes the Department of Justice will prosecute the 45th president. On Friday, the Department of Justice released a heavily redacted affidavit that was used to obtain a search warrant of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate earlier this month. Agents retrieved boxes of official documents, including classified material that Trump was supposed to leave with the government when he left office. The government retrieved some official documents from Mar-a-Lago in January with the cooperation of Trump’s team. However, officials came to realize the former president had more material. The DOJ subpoenaed Trump to gather the remaining documents. In June, lawyers for Trump claimed he had no more official materials in his possession. That turned out not to be the case, as the FBI raid this month demonstrated. Andrew Weissman, who assisted in the Mueller prove and also served as the top lawyer for the FBI, said on Friday’s Deadline: White House that based on what he’s seen, including the redacted affidavit, signs point to a prosecution of Trump: I...
    A top prosecutor for special counsel Robert Mueller predicted former President Donald Trump will be prosecuted over his handling of documents. Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official and FBI general counsel who was known as Mueller's "pitbull," made the "educated" assessment based on the release Friday of court documents underlying the FBI raid of Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida earlier this month. "When I read this today, my big, overarching takeaway is ... the former president is going to be prosecuted," Weissmann said on MSNBC. MUELLER PROSECUTOR REACTS TO 'SHOCKING' UNREDACTED BARR MEMO ON TRUMP OBSTRUCTION Weissmann said he cannot see how prosecutors could avoid going after Trump given that it is "clear there is an active, thorough investigation and just how much was done here."
