    No, Kyle Lowry did not open his media-day interview with a declaration that he is not fat. The question-and-answer session with the veteran Miami Heat point guard at FTX Arena was more subtle. But it also came against the backdrop of Heat President Pat Riley ending last season by saying of the player he spent $85 million on, “You have to be in world class shape, you just have to be. He’s definitely gonna have to address that and it will be addressed.” And yet it wasn’t on Monday, as the Heat regrouped ahead of Tuesday’s start of training camp in the Bahamas. “I didn’t even hear the comments,” Lowry said. “Someone else told me about ‘em.” And when he heard what was said? “It’s whatever,” Lowry said. “Honestly, he has his opinion, right? Everyone has their opinion and it doesn’t do anything for me. All I do is motivate myself, I always motivate myself.” Beyond that, nothing quantitative offered. “I don’t even know,” he said of his weight and body fat. “I’m just working and grinding. We’ll see what...
    Washington (CNN Business)The UK said Monday it could impose a multimillion-dollar fine on TikTok after the government found the short-form video platform may have violated children's privacy.The potential fine of £27 million, or about $29 million, follows an investigation by the UK's data privacy regulator, which found that over the course of two years from May 2018 to July 2020, TikTok may have breached UK law by processing data of kids under 13 without parental consent.In a legal document notifying TikTok of the possible fine, the UK Information Commissioner's Office also said TikTok may have processed sensitive categories of data "without legal grounds," and may have failed to provide information to its users transparently enough."We all want children to be able to learn and experience the digital world, but with proper data privacy protections," said Information Commissioner John Edwards in a statement. "Companies providing digital services have a legal duty to put those protections in place, but our provisional view is that TikTok fell short of meeting that requirement."In a statement, TikTok said: "While we respect the ICO's role in...
    Getty Chris Harris Jr. of the Denver Broncos walks on the field before a game against the Oakland Raiders. (Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty Images) The Cleveland Browns have proven resilient after a couple of shaky late-game efforts by their secondary, but adding reinforcements to the defensive backfield is a strategy that continues to make sense. Cleveland allowed a 75-yard touchdown against the Panthers in Week 1 and needed a bomb off the foot of kicker Cade York to pull out the win in the final seconds of the contest. The following week, the Browns surrendered a 13-point lead to the New York Jets with fewer than two minutes to play in one of the more disappointing defeats in recent memory — part of which involved blown coverage on a 66-yard deep strike that cut the lead to six. Things appeared more secure in the secondary during the Browns’ Thursday night win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but comfort equals complacency in the NFL, and complacency is in that league is near universal folly. The circumstances in Cleveland argue for...
    (CNN)The International Chess Federation (FIDE) reprimanded former world champion Magnus Carlsen for resigning from an online chess match against fellow grandmaster Hans Niemann after just one move but added that it shared the world No.1's "deep concerns about the damage that cheating brings to chess.""We strongly believe that there were better ways to handle this situation," FIDE said in a statement released on Friday. "The World Champion has a moral responsibility attached to his status, since he is viewed as a global ambassador of the game. His actions impact the reputation of his colleagues, sportive results, and eventually can be damaging to our game."The two players were participating in the Julius Baer Generation Cup on Monday when Carlsen turned off his screen and left the match without explanation.Earlier this month, the Norwegian withdrew from the Sinquefield Cup in Saint Louis following his surprise defeat against American star Niemann -- the first time he has withdrawn from a tournament in his career, according to chess24.Read MoreMagnus Carlsen quits match without explanation amid apparent feud with fellow grandmaster Hans NiemannAnother grandmaster, Hikaru...
    Atlanta Braves pitcher Spencer Strider is facing an oblique strain, and it’s worse than the team initially thought. He’ll be out for the rest of the regular season. Atlanta Braves pitcher Spencer Strider is facing an oblique strain, and it’s worse than the team initially thought. He’s been placed on the 15-day injured list, which reportedly goes back to Sept. 21. With only 11 games left of the regular season for the Braves, Strider will be out for the rest of the season. Spencer Strider’s oblique strain apparently was worse than initially indicated: #Braves put the rookie pitcher on the 15-day IL today, backdated to Sept. 21. He won’t pitch again in regular season.

    Behind closed doors, former President Donald Trump's advisors are reportedly expressing concerns about the pace of the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ) investigation, according to a new report published by The Guardian. Per the report, the former president's advisors are beginning to panic because the DOJ's classified documents probe is moving faster than they'd anticipated. The latest development comes just days after special master Raymond Dearie raised questions about Trump's claim that he'd declassified the documents. Dearie also put the former president and his legal team on the spot regarding his unfounded claims that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had "planted" evidence during the Mar-a-Lago search. READ MORE: Mar-a-Lago smoking gun footage may mean DOJ may not have recovered all the classified material: legal experts The Guardian's Hugo Lowell also noted how the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals' decision complicates the legal team's efforts as they attempt to slow the investigation. Per Lowell, that is one of the reasons for the panic. "The 29-page decision amounted to a sharp rebuke of the rulings by US district court...
    Richmond High has won its first football game since the 2019 season, though not in a way that would lead to a celebration on the field. The Oilers (1-3) beat Galileo by forfeit when the parents of seven Lions’ players said their sons would be unable to play because of safety concerns over the trip to Richmond, Galileo coach Nick Naudain told the San Francisco Standard. The final score goes as 2-0, ends an 18-game losing streak for the Oilers and drops Galileo’s record to 0-4. “They had a concern for potential community violence, specifically shootings and explosions,” Richmond coach Bryan Fisher wrote in a text to the Bay Area News Group. “In my opinion, this is completely unwarranted. We have one of the safest campuses in our county. I bring my children to practice regularly and allow them to interact with the students and community with no hesitation. I don’t bring my kids to San Francisco, and I never will unless things change drastically.” Fisher said the exact same thing to the Standard in a story that appeared on...

Annie said she asked what her grandchild had done to deserve the after-school punishment, and they told her "he didn't have a see-through pencil case". "I was sitting in my car waiting for him and all of a sudden all the kids had gone home and I thought where's my grandson? I phoned my daughter-in-law but she didn't answer," Annie added.

    watch nowVIDEO5:2105:21The Polygamist & The Bio Fuel Baron Season Premiere Extended Sneak PeekAmerican Greed The Inflation Reduction Act signed into law by President Joe Biden in August includes historic investments to combat climate change. It may also open new avenues for fraud by expanding a program that has given federal authorities fits for years. The Renewable Fuel Standard, passed with broad bipartisan support in 2005, uses a system of incentives to raise the percentage of biofuels like ethanol in the nation's fuel supply. One study by the Biotechnology Industry Organization credited the program with reducing U.S. dependence on foreign oil by nearly 2 billion barrels in its first 10 years. The new law keeps the system in place for now, extends some credits that were set to expire, and adds new benefits for things like ethanol-based aviation fuel. It does not, however, include any new provisions to prevent fraud, which one industry compliance expert said could be a problem. "In a program where, comparatively, you have little oversight, and there's a way to generate a massive amount of money fraudulently...
    The organizer of the demonstration, Tanya Woo, called the "lack of transparency and outreach" an example of "systematic racism." "Regardless of what people's stance are regarding this shelter, they just need to be heard. Whatever public safety concerns, or other concerns we have regarding the shelter, need to be addressed," said Woo. Woo told the news outlet that she met with the county executive to voice the community's concerns. "We met with King County Executive Dow (Constantine) and also director of community and human services Leo Flor yesterday (Monday,) one-hour meeting, we asked for a moratorium, or pause so the proper outreach and engagement can be done in the community and they said, 'no,'" Woo stated. During a press conference event on Monday, Constantine admitted that the county's community outreach was not enough. However, he assured the residents that he would work directly with local law enforcement to provide resources to neighborhoods with large homeless populations. Constantine said, "I will say this, we began the public outreach on this in March. It's clear that although we did outreach in...
    by John Hugh DeMastri   After years of high turnover that left some employees feeling expendable, Amazon is spending just shy of half a billion dollars for delivery partners to raise pay and provide benefits for drivers amid growing concerns of a labor shortage. The $450 million investment into Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners (DSP) network gives money to partnered companies to offer drivers pay increases, alongside funding for new benefits such as a 401(k) plan and education and training programs, according to Amazon’s announcement. The announcement, which Amazon said is part of efforts to build and retain “great teams,” comes less than four months after internal documents were leaked revealing Amazon’s concern that if its current hiring practices and treatment of employees continued, it would run out of people willing to work for the company by 2024, according to Vox. “Managing proper breaks is impossible because of the extremely high package count and stops, it makes it impossible to pull over to eat, so often times I drive and eat with one hand — it feels very dangerous, especially driving the huge...

    Leaders from Turkey, China, and India, all of whom have relatively positive relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, have publicly kept their distance over the war recently, a development the White House called "noteworthy." The comments from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Chinese leader Xi Jinping, and Indian leader Narendra Modi came in recent weeks as Russia's military has been forced to retreat from significant portions of the northeast territory it had occupied in Ukraine's most successful counteroffensive to date. PUTIN'S MOBILIZATION EFFORT IS A SIGN 'MANPOWER IS A PROBLEM,' KIRBY SAYS “It doesn’t seem like he has a whole lot of sympathetic ears out there, even among countries like China, who hasn’t condemned him," National Security Council coordinator John Kirby said on Good Morning America on Wednesday. "But they clearly have concerns about the way this war is being prosecuted, the atrocities, the war crimes. And I think they are surprised at how little progress Russia has made, so it’s noteworthy.” Kirby's comments came hours after Putin, in a prerecorded speech, announced a partial mobilization of roughly 300,000 reservists,...
    A Canadian high school has implied it would be illegal to criticize and stop a trans teacher from wearing huge prosthetic breasts in class.  Kayla Lemieux, a Manufacturing Technology teacher at Oakville Trafalgar High School in Ontario, was recently pictured instructing a shop class with the large prosthetics on, which stretch her clothing and stick out prominently. Despite the heavy backlash and reports that some students are skipping class, The Halton District School Board defended the teacher and said it would no longer answer questions about the issue because it was a 'personnel matter.'  The district also claimed that interfering or criticizing the teacher would go against the Ontario Human Rights Code.  'The HDSB recognizes the rights of students, staff, parents/guardians and community members to equitable treatment without discrimination based upon gender identity and gender expression. Gender identity and gender expression are protected grounds under the Ontario Human Rights Code,' the board said in a statement. Meanwhile, parents and students at the high school appeared split on the issue.  Owen LaPlante, a 12th grader at the school, told the Toronto...
    Share this: President Joe Biden says the discovery of top-secret documents at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate raised concerns that sensitive data was compromised and called it “irresponsible.” Biden, who rarely does interviews, spoke to CBS’ “60 Minutes” in a segment that aired Sunday. He said that when he heard about classified documents taken from the White House, he wondered how “anyone could be that irresponsible.” Biden added: “And I thought, what data was in there that may compromise sources and methods?”
    CHRIS EUBANK JR trolled Conor Benn after his father asked him to pull out of the fight due to safety concerns. The Brits are set to lock horns on October 8 at the O2 Arena. 2Chris Eubank Jr trolled Conor Benn during his birthday mealCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun 2Benn has also poked fun at his opponent over the weight issueCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun To make it an equal fight the pair have agreed to weigh in at 157lbs, meaning Benn, 25, has to gain an extra 10lbs. But Eubank, 33, usually fights at 160lbs and has fought at 168lbs in the past, and cutting weight could present a danger for the boxer. Eubank previously stated he will only be able to fight at 60 per cent due to the cut and rehydration clause which limits Eubank's weight the day after his weigh-in.

    A New Orleans Starbucks is set to close down a popular café due to racism and mental health concerns amid the metropolitan street being overrun by homeless people.   The café located at 700 Canal St. will close its doors indefinitely on October 3 amid a series of issues that led the location to be a 'high incident store.' 'Our stores are windows into America, and every day, our partners witness the challenges facing our communities – challenges to personal safety and security, racism, a growing mental health crisis, and issues magnified by COVID,' a Starbucks spokesperson said in a July letter obtained by 4WWL news.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was reportedly convinced that Republicans would blindly follow and support former President Donald Trump regardless of the circumstances, according to a new book. In the new book titled, “The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021,” journalists Susan Glasser and Peter Baker shared details about a previous conversation they'd had with the South Carolina lawmaker, reports HuffPost. “Trump could kill 50 on our side and it wouldn’t matter,” Graham told the two journalists. READ MORE: Lindsey Graham said Donald Trump 'could kill fifty people on our side and it wouldn’t matter': new book The remarks are said to have been a play on Trump's own comments when he boasted about his influence over the Republican Party during his 2016 presidential campaign.

    White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby was apologetic when asked about the perception he is undermining press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre behind the briefing podium. "If anyone gets any kind of idea in their head that I'm taking away from Karine or her work, that's really regrettable," Kirby said Friday. "I'm very sorry that that's any impression that anybody would have." BIDEN'S 'UNITY' EVENT MUDDLED BY DIVISIVE POLITICS Kirby, the former State and Defense Department spokesman, stressed that he is "simply" at the National Security Council to coordinate national security communications. The retired rear admiral added he joined Jean-Pierre in the briefing room "every now and then" and "with her good graces." "That's my portfolio. That's where I'm limited. That's where I'll stay, and I do it at her invitation and with her approval," he said. "That's the focus. I'm happy to answer national security questions, and that's about it."

    Washington (CNN)US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday said that the concerns of China and India about Russia's war in Ukraine are reflective of the global apprehension about the months-long conflict, and said he believes "it increases the pressure on Russia to end the aggression.""I think what you're seeing is just a manifestation of the fact that this aggression has been an aggression against the interests of people across the planet," Blinken said at a press conference at the State Department.As the West has worked to isolate Vladimir Putin over his country's invasion of Ukraine, the Russian President has further turned to nations like China. However, during a Thursday meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping, Putin acknowledged Beijing's "questions and concerns" about the war, which Russia continues to claim is a "special military operation."

    by Madeleine Hubbard   GOP Rep. Jim Jordan says the FBI is not responding to his concerns about a whistleblower report claiming the agency has classified an emergency-preparedness group started by a former Green Beret as a “domestic violent extremism” organization. Jordan, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, addressed his concerns in a letter sent Wednesday to FBI Director Christopher Wray — following one he sent in July about whistleblower allegations that the agency is “padding its domestic violent extremist data.” Jordan says some violent extremists might identify with how the group, American Contingency, is cited in a leaked FBI guide. Another issue for the Ohio lawmaker, over which others have already been raising concerns, is the FBI saying such symbols as the “Betsy Ross Flag” and “2A,” short for the Second Amendment, are associated with violent extremism. The group’s name did not appear in a search Thursday morning of the FBI’s Domestic Terror Watch list. Former Green Beret Mike Glover, who founded the group in July 2020, has denied the FBI’s accusations of terrorism and spoken about his organization’s charity work during natural...
    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi told Russian President Vladimir Putin in no unclear terms that he thinks Putin’s decision to wage war in Ukraine is a grave error. Modi, who was speaking with Putin in Uzbekistan on the sidelines of a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, said now is not the time for war, and lambasted him for continuing to conduct attacks against Ukrainians nearly seven months into the war, according to Reuters. Modi said this was not the first time he had expressed a distaste for Putin’s war. He said he has warned Putin he disapproved of the war over the phone on multiple occasions. “Today's era is not one of war, and I’ve talked to you about this on the phone several times… in the coming days, how we move towards the path of peace—we will definitely have an opportunity to discuss this,” Modi said, according to a translation from the director of The India Project at the Brookings Institution, Tanvi Madan. Modi cited concerns about food, fertilizer, and fuel security and supply issues. Putin acknowledged the prime...
    A scathing report released by the largest union representing healthcare workers in New Jersey reveals how nurses feel working at one Jersey Shore hospital — and it's largely not great. It all came to a head for Hackensack Meridian Jersey Shore University Medical Center nurses during the pandemic, when they found themselves fighting their employer for protection all while working on the front lines under already stressful conditions, the Health Professionals and Allied Employees (HPAE) report says. "Working conditions at Jersey Shore University Medical Center during the pandemic led to many nurses leaving the hospital, exacerbating a staffing shortage across the hospital that has now grown into a full-blown crisis," the report reads. "Nurses raised concerns about this mass exodus with management only to find management impervious to their concerns. So, the JSUMC nurses conducted a survey of their members."

    Former President Donald Trump's legal team purportedly leaned on the Secret Service as a cudgel in a failed bid to relocate the deposition of his hotly anticipated appearance before the New York Attorney General's Office last month, though the agency disputed the Trump legal team's account. Lawyers for Trump said the agency harbored security concerns about transporting the former president to the attorney general's office and pitched Trump Tower as a more suitable destination for his deposition instead, multiple sources told the Daily Beast. TRUMP SAYS HE ‘DECLINED TO ANSWER' QUESTIONS DURING NY AG DEPOSITION But the request, which came through correspondence with the attorney general's office, was disputed by Secret Service, which did not relay any such concerns to state investigators directly, the report noted. Furthermore, Trump's legal team provided no official affirmation of safety concerns from the agency itself, according to the report. “[Secret Service is] unaware of any security challenges at the Office of the New York State Attorney General,” Anthony Guglielmi, the chief of communications for the Secret Service, told the news...
    A new analysis is explaining how former President Donald Trump may have lied about safety concerns to avoid appearing at the New York attorney general’s office weeks ago. In a new report, The Daily Beast’s Jose Pagilery breaks down Trump’s claims while also explaining why the former president’s arguments may be nothing more than an excuse to delay court proceedings. Days prior to Trump’s deposition, which was scheduled for August 10, the former president’s legal team submitted documents detailing his safety concerns about the attorney general’s office. READ MORE: Legal expert breaks down why Trump may be facing a 'greater legal threat' in Georgia as opposed to the Mar-a-Lago case Pagilery noted that Trump’s legal team, according to inside sources, “asked that the contentious interview at the AG’s office be relocated to a more comfortable, convenient spot for the former president: Trump Tower.” “In correspondence that was filed in secret, Trump’s legal team notified state investigators that the Secret Service was opposed to transporting him to the AG’s office in Manhattan’s Financial District, both sources said,” Pagilery wrote. “The...
    In confidential court documents, former President Donald Trump tried to squirm his way out of taking a trip to the New York Attorney General’s office last month, telling a judge that the Secret Service had security concerns about the AG’s office, according to two sources familiar with the matter. In the days before his Aug. 10 deposition, according to those two sources and a third person familiar with the discussions, Trump’s legal team asked that the contentious interview at the AG’s office be relocated to a more comfortable, convenient spot for the former president: Trump Tower. The excuse appalled those who read it, spurring them to speak to The Daily Beast. In correspondence that was filed in secret, Trump’s legal team notified state investigators that the Secret Service was opposed to transporting him to the AG’s office in Manhattan’s Financial District, both sources said. The letter cited some sort of safety concern related to having the former president at the 60-story skyscraper at 28 Liberty Street—which is located just across the street from a Trump-owned building. Notably, however, these...
    Getty Quarterback Matt Ryan, head coach Frank Reich and the Indianapolis Colts settled for a tie against the Houston Texans in Week 1. The Indianapolis Colts avoided their ninth straight opening day loss to begin the 2022 season. But with a 20-20 tie to the Houston Texans, who were predicted to be one of the worst NFL teams this season, that’s hardly a consolation prize. Indianapolis made a plethora of mistakes in the season opener. The offense, defense and special teams all contributed to the team’s list of blunders. Several question marks heading into the 2022 offseason remain concerns for the Colts after Week 1. It’s only one game, and it’s important not to overreact. But here are 3 of Indianapolis’ biggest concerns moving ahead into Week 2 and the rest of the 2022 season.The Colts Pass Catchers Beyond Pittman, HinesThere were positives for the Indianapolis wide receivers in Week 1.

    Getty Joe Rogan enters the octagon during UFC 225. UFC superstar Khamzat Chimaev’s head coach Andreas Michael issued a decisive response to color commentator Joe Rogan. Chimaev is coming off a dominant win over former rival Kevin Holland in the co-main event of UFC 279 this past Saturday. “Borz” came out firing from the opening second and made quick work of Holland, securing a first-round finish by submission. He also managed to get the job done without taking a single significant strike, a feat he achieved for the fourth time under the banner. He was initially set to headline the card opposite Nate Diaz but needed to be shuffled after coming in seven and a half pounds over the agreed nontitle fight weight limit of 171 pounds. During the post-fight octagon interview, Rogan probed Chimaev about the massive weight miss. He asked Chimaev to provide reassurance that he would be able to make the welterweight limit if he got a title shot.Chimaev’s Coach Dismisses Rogan’s ConcernsIn an interview with Brett Okamoto of ESPN, coach Michael of Allstars Training Center...
    EXCLUSIVE — A pair of Republican lawmakers are urging Senate Democrats to conduct research into the environmental impact of their proposed marijuana legalization bill, citing concerns about high emissions that would result from widespread cultivation. The legalization of the drug in certain states has resulted in increased demand for marijuana products, causing states to ramp up production and expand their operations to indoor facilities. However, this has prompted concerns among some lawmakers who argue this increased energy consumption will have detrimental effects on the country’s energy systems, as well as the environment. INTO THE WEEDS: HERE’S WHAT’S IN THE SENATE DEMOCRATS’ LONG-AWAITED MARIJUANA BILL “As Congress debates whether to advance marijuana legalization, the American people must have a better understanding of the environmental costs of this rapidly growing industry,” wrote Reps.

    Singapore has become a hub for private equity in Asia.Roslan Rahman | AFP | Getty Images Ultra-rich investors in Asia-Pacific are shifting away from a "wait and see" approach they adopted at the onset of the pandemic as concerns over market volatility set in, a new survey by Swiss private bank Lombard Odier showed.  The survey of 450 the region's wealthy investors — defined as those with a minimum of $1 million of investable assets domiciled in Asia-Pacific — revealed their top concerns. They included how to manage current market volatility and geopolitical risks, as well as how to better diversify their portfolio to mitigate these risks, according to the 2022 HNW Individuals (HNWIs) Study. The urgency of these strategies has risen since the survey in 2020, Lombard Odier said.  "During the peak of COVID-19 in 2020, a majority of APAC HNWIs surveyed did not change their portfolio characteristics and were adopting a 'wait and see' approach," said Lombard Odier's Head of Ultra High Net Worth Individuals Offering Asia, Jean-Francois Aboulker. "This was mainly due to a lack of...
    by Eric Lendrum   Joe Biden announced Friday that former Obama Administration adviser John Podesta would join the White House to oversee the spending of $370 billion for the purpose of addressing so-called “global warming.” His appointment, however, has led to criticism from China hawks who warn that Podesta is too close to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). According to the Washington Free Beacon, Podesta had previously called for more Chinese investment in American infrastructure as far back as 2013, claiming that there are “great opportunities for Chinese firms to directly invest in this nation, to build American infrastructure, to create American jobs, and generate steady and handsome returns.” “There’s also the ability for Chinese firms to invest here and learn best practices,” Podesta added 9 years ago, “and take those home to the tremendous and growing middle class market in China.” But China has instead used its interventions in the American economy to commit mass espionage on a financial and personal scale. One report in 2017 determined that China was stealing at least $600 billion in trade secrets per...

    The remnants of Tropical Storm Kay could cause thunderstorms and flooding Sunday and early into the week in Southern California, particularly in the interior mountains and deserts, according to the National Weather Service. A flash flood watch was in effect Saturday for mountain and desert areas in Los Angeles, Ventura and San Diego counties, as well as the Inland Empire. Thunderstorms on Sunday “may be slower moving” than Saturday’s, which elevates the risk of flooding if rain continues to pound the same areas, Robbie Munroe, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Los Angeles, said Saturday. “That’s something we’ll be looking at closer today.” In San Diego County, “we’re going to see scattered showers lingering across the area” Sunday and Monday, said Casey Oswant, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service there. “Showers are most likely in the mountains but could drift west into the valleys or east into the deserts at times.” The region can expect “a slight chance of thunderstorms each afternoon as well, with all that leftover tropical moisture” as Kay moves out...

    by Ben Whedon   The Boise Pride Fest will cancel a drag show featuring children over safety concerns. “While the vast majority of our sponsors and supporters have voiced their support for the Boise Pride Festival and the Drag Kids program, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone this performance due to increased safety concerns,” the group stated, according to Idaho News. “The health and well-being of the kids, their parents, and the attendees of the Festival are our priority.” The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare previously withdrew its support from the vent over questions surround the department’s endorsement of programming involving children.

But on September 9, Colts head coach Frank Reich announced Leonard would not play in Week 1 against the Houston Texans. “I feel good about the progress he’s making, but we just felt after talking with Shaq, the trainers and the doctors, that it was the best thing for him and for our team to hold him out this week,” said Reich. The Colts head coach continued, explaining that Leonard was not ruled out because of a setback in his recovery.Reich Says Leonard Didn’t Suffer Injury SetbackLeonard was a full participant in practice on September 7 but had more limited snaps in practice the following two days.

    Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II’s family are traveling to Balmoral Castle in Scotland after the monarch’s doctors announced on Thursday they were “concerned” for her health. In a rare statement on the Queen’s health, Buckingham Palace said Thursday the monarch was advised to remain under medical supervision because of the doctors’ concerns. “The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral (Castle),” the statement added.

    by Dave Fidlin   Licensure requirements, professional development opportunities and employment compensation are among some of the weighty issues a new Connecticut task force will delve into in the coming months. The state’s Early Childhood Workforce Development Task Force held its first monthly meeting recently and began laying the groundwork for its deep-dive conversations in the coming months. The Connecticut General Assembly formed the group, which is comprised of a number of educators across the state. A report on the task force’s findings is due in January. Task force members held their inaugural meeting on Aug. 24 against the backdrop of a number of statistics critics say have long challenged staffing within the early childhood sector of the educational arena. Full-time early education teachers, for instance, are paid an average hourly wage of $14, and real wages within the profession have reportedly declined in recent years, despite inflationary pressures. Another issue the panel could tackle in the coming months is the racial disparities within the profession. According to the Center for American Progress, wage gaps have shrunk in the...
    Executives at Bed Bath & Beyond say they reported concerns their chief financial officer, Gustavo Arnal, was feeling 'stressed' with the current financial crisis and his own share dealings coming under scrutiny. Arnal killed himself after jumping from his Manhattan skyscraper apartment late last week.  Board member Sue Gove, who began acting as interim chief executive officer in June, believed Arnal to be overwhelmed but feared replacing the CFO while the company was in the middle of raising money.  Similarly, a former CEO of Avon Products, Jan Zijderveld, who dined with Arnal and his wife in July, said it was clear the 52-year-old was under pressure and said as much to him.  Arnal served as the chief financial officer at Bed Bath & Beyond, which had been struggling due to the economic downturn but other execs at the company believed him 'overwhelmed' Board member Sue Gove, who began acting as interim chief executive officer in June, believed Arnal to be overwhelmed but feared replacing the CFO while the company was in the middle of raising money 'I could see the stress on him.He's...
