    A fishing float tube is an effective and innovative solution to reaching the fish when you need to get offshore and onto the water but either can’t afford or logistically transport a larger vessel. Even for those anglers who have a less restrictive budget or access to other watercraft, utilizing a float tube can actually be a preferred way to target fish depending on the target species and water body. These neat inflatables work great for both spin and fly fishermen and are far easier to get down to the water’s edge than a boat or fishing kayak. Storage and organization potential on these inflatable fishing vessels are actually quite impressive, and depending on the model you go with, they can be quite comfortable too! You gotta love the simplicity of putting on a pair of fins and kicking your way out into the feeding zone! Be your own trolling motor, sit and leisurely cast or venture out to explore new water with one of our top picks of fishing float tubes!

    Jim Watson | Afp | Getty Images Senate Democrats' package of climate change, health-care, drug pricing and tax measures unveiled last week has proponents and opponents debating whether the legislation violates a pledge President Joe Biden has made since his presidential campaign, to not raise taxes on households with incomes below $400,000 a year. The answer isn't quite as simple as it seems.  "The fun part about this is, you can get a different answer depending on who you ask," said John Buhl, an analyst at the Tax Policy Center.  More from Personal Finance:Embryos can count as dependents on Georgia state tax returnsWould you be included in student loan forgiveness?Remote work is helping fight inflation The White House has used $400,000 as a rough dividing line for the wealthy relative to middle and lower earners. That income threshold equates to about the top 1% to 2% of American taxpayers.  The new bill, the Inflation Reduction Act, doesn't directly raise taxes on households below that line, according to tax experts. In other words, the legislation wouldn't trigger an increase on taxpayers' annual tax...
    Salaries for the same job at Twitter can vary by up to 225 per cent depending on where the staff work, internal data has revealed. The social media giant's Salary Range Dashboard shows staff how much their colleagues in the same roles in different offices around the world are earning.

    AS we're sure all brides and grooms will agree, weddings can be seriously expensive - so it's pretty standard practice for couples to ask for money as a gift these days. That said, one bridezilla has been blasted online for offering her guests better food depending on their cash gift - and there's even a premium option for loved ones who splash out over £2k. 1The RSVP card was labelled 'tacky' by Reddit usersCredit: Reddit After sparking outrage on Facebook, a photo of the tiered menu was shared on Reddit's wedding shaming forum where users blasted the "tacky" American couple.

    ONE popular optical illusion has left people baffled and wondering what it means for their brains. The Spinning Dancer, also known as the Silhouette Illusion, is an animated optical illusion. 1The Spinning Dancer, also known as the Silhouette Illusion, is an animated optical illusion.Credit: YouTube It was originally released in 2003 as a GIF animation of a pirouetting female dancer.

    The Orlando Magic landing the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft not only has the potential to significantly alter their long-term outlook but will change their short-term future too. Top picks typically have significant roles for their teams as rookies. Jalen Suggs and Franz Wagner, the Nos. 5 and 8 picks in last year’s draft, opened the season as starters. Suggs (27.2 minutes) and Wagner (30.7) both averaged at least 27 minutes. Expect the Magic, who are in the midst of a rebuild, to give whoever they pick at No. 1 plenty of opportunities to develop as a rookie. What does that mean for the 2022-23 season? Likely changed roles and rotations from this past season — including a different starting lineup. Duke’s Paolo Banchero, Gonzaga’s Chet Holmgren and Auburn’s Jabari Smith are among the top prospects. But based on intel gathered during last week’s scouting combine, rival executives and scouts believe the No. 1 pick will come down to Holmgren and Smith. Both would fit needs of the Magic in their own ways while also altering how Orlando...
    Getty Khabib Nurmagomedov If former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos wins at Eagle FC 47, then the organization’s promoter Khabib Nurmagomedov will look to set up a fight with “Cigano” and Fedor Emelianenko. During Wednesday’s Eagle FC 47 post-fight press conference, Nurmagomedov expressed his interest in a cross-promotional fight between the two mixed martial arts legends. Emelianenko is currently under contract with Bellator MMA, so president Scott Coker must be willing to play ball with Nurmagomedov. Before all of that, Dos Santos must step into the cage and defeat Yorgan de Castro on Friday night. Cigano and de Castro, who is also a former UFC heavyweight, will compete in the night’s main event. And if Dos Santos gets his hand raised, expect “The Eagle” to pursue Dos Santos versus “The Last Emperor.” “If Dos Santos win, I really want to make Dos Santos vs. Fedor fight,” Nurmagomedov said via MMA Junkie. “But he has to focus on Yorgan for next, because this fighter here is tough opponent. I want to talk with my friend, Scott Coker, because...
    The Ukrainian military has withstood Russia’s invasion for roughly 2 1/2 months, and some experts now believe they have a chance to win the war, though it’s not clear what victory might look like. Ukraine’s military was able to endure the initial phase of Russia’s effort to topple Kyiv, the capital. While Russia has since refocused its efforts elsewhere, the U.S. director of national intelligence believes that could just be a temporary shift. “I think [the Ukrainians] could definitely win,” John Hardie, a senior research analyst for the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the Washington Examiner, but it “depends on how you define it.” IN VICTORY DAY SPEECH, PUTIN SEEKS RUSSIAN UNITY FOR LONG-TERM STRUGGLE AGAINST WEST Hardie doesn’t expect Ukraine to retake the Crimean Peninsula, which Russia annexed from its neighbor in 2014, though he said he believes it could “definitely stop Russia from making additional significant gains.” Mark Cancian, a senior adviser for the Center for Strategic and International Studies, agreed, arguing that “there’s an excellent chance of them winning, which I would not have said a...
    THE world's oldest optical illusion is still turning heads after 900 years - and what you see first is said to be very revealing. The image is carved in stone at Airavatesvara temple in Thanjavur, in southern India's Tamil Nadu state. 3This temple carving in India is believed to be 900 years old Besides being a remarkable piece of art from the Chola dynasty, it is also a fascinating optical illusion - and one of the earliest known examples. It shows a bull and an elephant that appear to share the same head. It you cover up the body of legs of the creature on the left, the animal on the right is clearly an elephant.

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics dispatched the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night, completing a four-game sweep and leaving Boston basketball fans left to wonder one very straightforward question: What’s next? That’s a question without an answer at the moment, as the Celtics will have to wait for a conclusion in the first-round series taking place between the Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls. The Bucks own a 3-1 series lead and will be hosting Game 5 on Wednesday night, with a chance to clinch the series and advance to the second round. If the Bucks do end their series on Wednesday, then the Celtics-Bucks series will start on either Saturday or Sunday, according to MassLive’s Brian Robb. If the Bucks need a sixth game on Friday night to win the series, then the Celtics-Bucks series will start on Sunday. And if that series ends up needing seven games to be resolved, the Celtics will host Game 1 of the second-round series on Tuesday, May 3. In the meanwhile, the Celtics will enjoy some well-earned rest as they prepare for their next...

    MEN are at risk of weaker sperm depending on where they live, a study warns. The fertility of thousands, potentially millions of men, may be experiencing fertility decline without realising. 1SpermCredit: Alamy Researchers in China discovered that men who live in heavily polluted areas may experience poor sperm motility.  Motility is how well a sperm swims. The stronger it is, the easier the sperm can swim in a forwards direction in search of the egg. But male fertility relies on a number of sperm parameters - inluding sperm count, which is the concentration of sperm per ejaculation. It’s not the first time a link between toxic air and men’s swimmers has been made. Prior research has shown that sperm counts for men living in North America, Australia and Europe have been declining since the 1970s. While there could be a number of reasons why, scientists theorise air pollution is a key culprit. In the new study, published in the journal JAMA Network Open, the health records of men across 130 locations in China were collected. Almost 34,000 men each...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The inflation rate grew in January, up to 7.5 percent over the last year. As money editor Jon Delano reports, the inflation rate affects people differently depending on their circumstances READ MORE: State Rep. Says Her Work Isn't Done On Bill That Could Protect Victims Of Domestic ViolenceIn recent decades, we’ve gotten used to inflation of between 1 and 4 percent each year. But with this rate of 7.5 percent, you have to go back to Ronald Reagan in 1982 for inflation this high. As to its impact on all of us, that depends on a number of factors. First, the good news. While the monthly inflation rate hit 0.6 percent in January, that’s down from the high months of October and June when it hit 0.9 percent. But don’t expect much change in the near future, says Duquesne University economist Professor Antony Davies. “I think we’re going to be seeing some significant inflation from here on out,” says Davies. But just because the Consumer Price Index, or CPI, annual inflation rate is 7.5 percent doesn’t mean...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The great mystery of sports always lies within the unanswerable question of “What if?” Countless moments throughout sports history could have and would have been altered significantly if only this had gone one way, if only that had gone the other. The theoretical domino effect from those points forward is impossible to calculate. Alas, all we actually have in sports is reality. And on Wednesday, New England football fans have one heck of a reality to celebrate, as the unforgettable Snow Bowl turns 20 years old. Of course, Raiders fans(and Patriots haters) likely refer to the day as the 20th anniversary of the Tuck Rule Game, not the Snow Bowl. That’s due to the way that the proper enforcement of a rule — however odd that rule may have been, it had been enforced before that night, including in a way that adversely affected the Patriots that very same season — gave the Patriots a second life on that fateful evening in the old Foxboro Stadium. To say they made the most of their extra opportunity would...

For instance, California is the only state that has sent a stimulus check from its own money in the form of the Golden State Stimulus, as it has a budget surplus due to its tax system.

    HOW much you get in Social Security depends on what you've earned during your career, among other factors. The maximum monthly benefit is $3,895 in 2021, but this could rise to more than $4,000 from next year. 2We explain how much you'll get in Social Security depending on your wagesCredit: Getty In comparison, the average Social Security benefit is currently $1,543 a month. Alongside your average salary, the monthly payments are also based on when you were born and the age you start to claim the benefits. We've done the calculations for a wide range of salaries, ranging from $20,000 to $150,000. The calculations assume that you start claiming at your full retirement age (FRA) of 67. If you were born in 1960 or later, your FRA is 67. For others, it's 66 and a specific number of months. You can start claiming benefits before your FRA at the age of 62, but your benefit amount will be reduced for each month that you claim early.

Heading into the National Football League's 102nd season — which kicked off last week — about 45.2 million Americans said they plan to wager on games, up about 36% from a year ago, according to research from the American Gaming Association. The growth comes as half of states now offer legalized sports betting and more are gearing up to do so.

    A FLIGHT attendant has revealed the drink they serve to passengers they don't like - meaning you may be in their bad books if you find yourself with lots of ice in your cocktail. Shawn Kathleen, a former flight attendant who runs the Passenger Shaming Instagram account, said that she would often put more ice in drinks to people who annoyed her. 2 A flight attendant has revealed the drink they serve to bad passengersCredit: Alamy In an interview with Yahoo, Shawn revealed that she would "take a cup and scoop in a lot of ice, and when I pour the soda or juice in, there’s, like, two tablespoons!” This watered down cocktail is what she calls “The ‘A***hole Special”, and it's one that she thinks other flight attendants make as well.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that 'of course' the US policy is still not to negotiate with terrorists, as Biden administration officials say they are relying on the Taliban to allow safe passage of Americans and American allies to Kabul airport. 'Why haven't we heard the president say, 'The United States does not negotiate with terrorists?' Is that still U.S. policy?' Fox News' Peter Doocy asked the press secretary at a daily briefing.   'Well, of course it is, Peter,' Psaki replied. 'But I would also say that there's a reality that the Taliban is currently controlling large swaths of Afghanistan.

    Tyrannosaurus rex — the oft-dubbed 'king of the dinosaurs' had nerves in its jaw that would have allowed it to recognise varied parts of its prey and eat them differently. This is the conclusion of experts from the Fukui Prefectural University, who scanned the fossilised lower jaw of a T. rex and reconstructed the nerve pattern within. The fearsome reptiles may also have been adept enough with their mouths to use them to make nests, care for their young and even communicate with each other.  While the internal structure of the jaw has been studied previously in several fossil reptiles, this is the first such study to focus on T. rex, the team said.

    DEPENDING on your age you could suffer from different Covid symptoms, a new study has found. Delta has thrown up some new symptoms to look out for, with the virus often presenting as cold-like. 1People report different symptoms at different ages, a study foundCredit: Rex People who have been vaccinated have experienced different symptoms now too. In light of this, the Office for National Statistics and Oxford University carried out a survey to find out the most common symptoms people struck down with Covid. They found children and the over-70s often suffered from vastly different symptoms. Teenagers and kids most commonly reported having a fever when sick with Delta. Older people suffered more with a cough and fatigue, often also with diarrhoea. And people over 70 said they usually had shortness of breath when ill, with young adults reporting a loss of taste or smell and sore throat as their most common symptoms.

    12 of Beloved Community Village residents, formerly homeless people, are now live in the tiny-house community in Denver, Colorado.Hyoung Chang | MediaNews Group | The Denver Post via Getty Images Demand for tiny homes, either stand-alone or backyard dwellings, rose significantly during the coronavirus pandemic, as some homeowners looked for additional space and others looked for more affordable space. Along with the rest of the housing market, however, the costs are rising. Tiny homes are generally designated as being under 600 square feet, but the average size of a tiny house for sale in the U.S. is actually just 225 square feet, or roughly eight times smaller than a typical home, according to a new survey by Porch.com, a home services platform. Nationally, the average cost of a tiny home is $52,000, 87% cheaper than the average price of a typical home. Buyers, however, are paying more per square foot on tiny homes, 62% more. "There is a lot of detail and complexity in connecting and integrating all the mains (electricity, sewage, heating) in a relatively small building," said Volodymyr...
