    Christian Pulisic should be healthy for the US national soccer team's do-or-die match with the Netherlands on Saturday, says captain Tyler Adams, who is admittedly relieved after beating Iran in the Group B finale to advance to the World Cup's knockout stage in Doha. 'A huge relief,' Adams told Good Morning America on Wednesday from Qatar. 'I think for us it was our goal coming into the World Cup to get out of the group but now anything can happen.' The US advanced by virtue of Tuesday's 1-0 win, thanks to a late first-half goal by Pulisic, who suffered a bruised abdomen while colliding with Iran's goalkeeper on the play and was subbed out by coach Gregg Berhalter at halftime. Pulisic was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but responded to the victory on social media, writing that he will 'be ready Saturday' for the round-of-16 match with the Netherlands. Adams echoed the good news with GMA on Wednesday. 'He's doing alright,' Adams said. 'He's in great spirits feeling a lot better now but what a big player for...
    Only a handful of people know the exact location where President Vladimir Putin is celebrating his 70th birthday in St. Petersburg on Friday, but critics say he spends more and more of his time isolated deep inside nuclear bunkers. The Kremlin has announced that Putin will spend his birthday working. Mired, as he is, in the biggest self-made disaster of his presidency, that just raises more worrying questions about what kind of orders he’s going to issue on his big day. Backed into a corner, what is Putin considering next? People who’ve known Putin for many years claim the Russian leader is “nervous” and “tense” these days; online political groups speculate on Telegram that Putin is planning “to use tactical nuclear weapons out of a bunker, far from Moscow,” while Kremlinologists debate how to prevent a looming doomsday scenario. Putin himself has said he will respond to the grim daily news from Ukraine—where his army is suffering defeat after defeat—with “all the means at our disposal.” That, he added, “is not a bluff.” In an alarming symbolic gesture, he promoted...
    Black Democrats are poised to make history by winning the top offices of Maryland in November. But to govern effectively, they must be prepared to address the mindset of violence and crime modeled in the acclaimed Baltimore-set HBO drama, The Wire. That means moving beyond the usual calls for reforms in the criminal justice system and economic mobility. What the would-be leaders also need to explore are ways to break the chains of “mental slavery” that psychiatrist Alvin Poussaint, among others, claim exacerbates “Black on Black” crime. The Democratic nominee for governor is Wes Moore, an author, educator, and army veteran who promises to expand economic opportunity, upgrade transportation operations, and improve access to health care and good public education. The nominee for attorney general is Rep. Anthony Brown, a former Maryland lieutenant governor who campaigned on protecting voting rights, reproductive rights, gun violence prevention, and criminal justice reform. They are running against Republican nominees with extremist backgrounds. For governor, the GOP has selected Dan Cox, a state legislator who reportedly deleted more than 1,000 controversial posts on Gab,...
    IMG Academy pitching coach Steve Frey always tells people Jackson Ferris has that “it factor.” The Cubs selected the 18-year-old left-hander in the second round Sunday, an impressive high school pitcher who can rack up strikeouts. MLB.com rated Ferris the No. 19 prospect in the draft and Baseball America had him at No. 34. The Cubs, who picked him at No. 47, added a high-upside arm. Ferris struck out 189 batters in 105 innings during two seasons as a starter at IMG Academy. He finished his senior year with a 1.33 ERA and 6.87 strikeouts-to-walks ratio in 10 outings. “When he’s outside of the lines he’s one of the nicest kids you’ll ever meet,” Frey told the Tribune. “And inside the lines, he’s got that fire-in-the-belly mentality where he wants the ball. He wants to win.” Ferris always told Frey he was available between starts if it meant helping his team win. “He’s a really good pitcher, but he has that little extra that some guys don’t have,” Frey said. “And coaches are going to love that.” IMG Academy’s national...

    Meghan McCain ripped Elon Musk Friday over his growing number of children with multiple women, and argued he is not a “role model.” Although she acknowledged what the Tesla CEO does with his “sperm” is his own business, she urged her readers to preserve the nuclear family model. It was reported this week Musk fathered twins last year with Neuralink executive Shivon Zilis. On Twitter, Musk appeared to confirm the news he now has nine children.

    When Lance Lynn is on the mound, fellow Chicago White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito always notices his “presence and attitude.” “When it’s a big spot and he starts running that fastball up there and gets a couple of big strikeouts to get out of an inning, it’s always great to see his reaction to it,” Giolito told the Tribune Monday afternoon at Comerica Park. “It fires everybody up and keeps the momentum on our side.” The Sox reinstated Lynn from the injured list for his season debut against the Detroit Tigers. The Sox won 9-5, with José Abreu leading the offense with two two-run homers. Lynn allowed three runs on 10 hits with four strikeouts and no walks in 4⅓ innings. He threw 88 pitches (52 strikes). The right-hander’s return was one of three roster moves Monday by the Sox, who placed catcher Yasmani Grandal on the 10-day injured list with lower back spasms and requested waivers on pitcher Ryan Burr for the purpose of granting his unconditional release. Lynn, 35, had been out since he hobbled off the mound...

It was one of three roster moves Monday by the Sox, who placed catcher Yasmani Grandal on the 10-day injured list with lower back spasms and requested waivers on pitcher Ryan Burr for the purpose of granting his unconditional release. Lynn, 35, had been out since he hobbled off the mound in an April 2 Cactus League game after throwing a pitch to the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Corbin Carroll. He underwent right knee surgery to repair a torn tendon three days later. “We’ve all seen what he can do,” Grandal...
    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Lining up at his customary position in the New England Patriots’ backfield on Tuesday, Damien Harris felt a rush of adrenaline. “It’s a lot of fun just having the opportunity to come out here with this team, having all our guys back just brings all the more excitement,” the 5-foot-11, 213-pound running back said following the Patriots’ first practice at their mandatory minicamp. “Every time you touch the ball you want good results to happen, so you’ve got to practice good habits, practice good fundamentals, and let the rest take care of the rest. But, like I said, (it’s a) really exciting time right now having all of our guys back, being able to come out here for the first time as a collective team, as a collective unit. So I’m really excited to be out here, and it was a good day.” Good things generally happened when Harris touched the ball last season as he gained a career-high 929 yards on 202 carries (an average of 4.6 yards per attempt) and scored 15 touchdowns...
    Getty Wisconsin linebacker Leo Chenal is now a Kansas City Chief. What a draft it has been for general manager Brett Veach and the Kansas City Chiefs. This has been a strength of the franchise for the better part of a decade and it’s the main reason for the sustained success we’ve seen in KC. In 2022, the Chiefs look to have made out like bandits so far on paper. Trent McDuffie, cornerback. George Karlaftis, edge rusher. Skyy Moore, wide receiver. Bryan Cook, safety. Leo Chenal, linebacker. The final name on that list joined Chiefs Kingdom late on night two, but he still had plenty of energy to address the media just after his selection.

    In the wake of the trade that cost him two of his high-leverage reliever, Orioles manager Brandon Hyde was not shy about his intentions with right-hander Jorge López. “You’re gonna see Jorge López pitch in big spots,” Hyde said earlier this week after Baltimore dealt Tanner Scott and Cole Sulser to the Miami Marlins. It did not take Hyde long to show he meant that statement, calling on López to face the heart of the Tampa Bay Rays’ order in the eighth inning of Friday’s season-opening 2-1 loss. Although López allowed the go-ahead run to score, he showed why Hyde trusted him in that spot. The average velocity on each of his three pitches Friday was about 3 mph above his marks in 2021, a season spent mostly as a struggling starter. His sinker averaged 98.5 mph and got up to 99.3 mph, according to Baseball Savant. “His fastball velocity has really jumped, and so now he’s sitting 98, 99,” Hyde said afterward. “He’s now a weapon against right-handed and left-handed hitters. He’s always had a starter mix, obviously, but...
    Moms for America has joined the People’s Convoy of semitruck drivers — and debuted their own pro-liberty truck — in what founder Kimberly Fletcher says is a protest against coronavirus mandates and vaccines, as well as the “draconian mentality” embraced by the left. Speaking to Breitbart News during an exclusive interview at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, Fletcher discussed the group’s decision to join the freedom trucker movement, the People’s Convoy, to send a “strong message of freedom.” During the four-day conference, the group launched their “big rig” — a  “purple truck with a Statue of Liberty and Constitution and big Moms for America logo on it.” From there it headed west to meet with the team coming from Barstow, ultimately traveling to D.C. She told Breitbart News that the truck driver is actually a mom as well. BIG NEWS! Moms for America is joining the Peoples Convoy!

    An elegance coach has revealed the signs that someone is Old Money - from trying not to splash the cash to having an 'us against them' mentality. Anna Bey, who splits her time between London and Geneva, explained in her most recent YouTube video how to tell whether the millionaire next door is self-made, or if they were born into money. From always mentioning where they went to school to self confidence and good manners, there are apparently 10 tell-tale signs that announce to the world whether a wealthy individual is a blue-blooded aristocrat or nouveau riche.  Scroll down for video  An elegance coach (pictured) has revealed the signs that someone is Old Money - from trying not to splash the cash to having an 'us against them' mentality Money passed down through seven generations  The elegance coach explained: 'To be classified as Old Money you actually have to have inherited your wealth for ideally seven generations.   'Some people think that you can become Old Money just by dressing the part or by creating a similar lifestyle to them - but...
    If you’re looking for the roots of today’s bizarre conspiracy-and-anger-driven politics, you need to look further back than the presidency of Donald Trump or even the rise of social media or talk radio — back to the accusatory, inflammatory, wild-eyed rhetoric of the John Birch Society in the 1960s and 1970s. It’s beginning to fade into history, but the John Birch Society was once the most formidable anticommunist organization of the Cold War era. Named for an American army captain killed by Chinese communists, it was founded in 1958 by Robert Welch, a North Carolina-born candy magnate. (His company created the caramel “Sugar Daddy” on a stick.) Most Americans learned of the society after March 20, 1961, when it was widely reported that Welch had called former President Eisenhower a communist. It was an outrageous and ludicrous assertion, but Welch was just getting started in weaving his tapestry of paranoia. He saw communist conspiracies lurking in colleges, high schools and the government. Fluoride was being used to enervate Americans in advance of the coming communist occupation, he said. Welch also...
    “Next man up” is one of the oldest cliches in professional sports, a line that is often repeated over and over like a song’s chorus by every team. When personnel losses happen because of injuries, suspensions, or COVID-19 positive test results, which is the case for many NFL teams like the Miami Dolphins this past week, the next man in line is required to step up and fill in capably. Football, a sport whose collisions are often equivalent of a car crash, has the biggest rosters in sports. Therefore, the league must survive on players rising up the depth chart and holding down the line, or the linebacker unit, or the secondary, or the receiver room. This past week because of a recent outbreak of COVID-19, which has produced more than 100 positive tests and motivated the NFL to push back one game to Monday and two others to Tuesday, dozens of players will be put in “next-man-up” situations and asked to transform from a backup into a key contributor. “It’s the same old, same old....
    (CNN)A vast trove of fossils unearthed in Argentina's southern Patagonia region is offering the oldest-known evidence that some dinosaurs thrived in a complex and well-organized herd structure, with adults caring for the young and sharing a communal nesting ground.Scientists said on Thursday the fossils include more than 100 dinosaur eggs and the bones of about 80 juveniles and adults of a Jurassic Period plant-eating species called Mussaurus patagonicus, including 20 remarkably complete skeletons. The animals experienced a mass-death event, probably caused by a drought, and their bodies were subsequently buried by wind-blown dust, the researchers said."It is a pretty dramatic scene from 193 million years ago that was frozen in time," said paleontologist Diego Pol of the Egidio Feruglio Paleontological Museum in Trelew, Argentina, who led the research published in the journal Scientific Reports.Mussaurus, which grew to about 20 feet (6 meters) long and about 1.5 tons, possessed a long neck and tail, with a small head. It was bipedal as an adult but newborns were quadrupedal. Mussaurus lived early in the Jurassic, the second of three periods comprising the...
    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), a centrist lawmaker who has positioned himself as a major roadblock to President Joe Biden's Build Back Better agenda, is denying reports he plans to leave the Democratic Party. Manchin on Wednesday pushed back on the claims saying, "I can't control rumors, and it's bullshit, bullshit spelled with a B, U, L, L, capital B." A Mother Jones exclusive, published Wednesday, claimed Manchin is quietly mulling over strategies to sever ties with the political party. Per Mother Jones: "Manchin told associates that he was prepared to initiate his exit plan earlier this week and had mentioned the possibility to Biden. But he was encouraged by the conversations with Sanders and top Democrats that occurred at the start of the week and did not yet see a reason to take this step. Still, he has informed associates that because he is so out of sync with the Democratic Party, he believes it is likely he will leave the party by November 2022." Manchin has joined Republican senators in...
    Politico is calling out President Biden for his lack of availability to do one-on-one interviews with the press.  On Tuesday's installment of its "West Wing Playbook" newsletter, Politico reporters Alex Thompson and Tina Sfondeles began by highlighting that Biden has only participated in "just 10" interviews in the first nine months of his presidency, not one since Labor Day.  His tally pales in comparison to the 57 interviews Donald Trump had done as well as Barack Obama's 131 interviews at the same point in their presidencies, according to the "presidential watcher" and former CBS reporter Mark Knoller. They also note that Biden had done "at least double" the interviews at this point in the Obama era as vice president.  POLITICO CONFIRMS HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP EMAILS AFTER MEDIA DECLARED STORY ‘RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION’ AMID ELECTION "Biden’s team is quick to note that he often takes questions from reporters after he does events. Allies of the president are even quicker to note that no one outside of the Washington press corps really cares about press access," Politico wrote. "But the lack of interviews...
    Frank Thomas believes the Chicago White Sox have what it takes to win the World Series. Frank Thomas has been a Chicago White Sox believer all season long and that will not change with October baseball starting today for his former team. Thomas believes with the right mindset the White Sox are headed to the World Series. “I’ve said it all year long and I’m not going to back off,” Thomas told FanSided. “I think they match up very similar with superstar rotations and bullpens. I think the White Sox have the bullpen edge, I think the Dodgers might have the starting edge. You look at the lineups, great exciting hitters all over the diamond. That would be a fun World Series.”An underdog mentality could give the White Sox an edge to reach the World SeriesGetting past the Houston Astros will not be easy for a White Sox team that hasn’t won a postseason series since 2005 when they beat the Astros in the World Series.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — As they huddled at their Arizona Spring Training site, the San Francisco Giants were hearing what the ESPN pundits were saying, what the Vegas oddsmakers were predicting and the chatter that was cascading across social media. This would be the season of an epic battle for the NL West title between the star-studded, highly paid rosters of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres.

The 2021 Giants won a franchise record 107th game Sunday over a reeling San Diego club. They forced the 106-win Dodgers into a one-or-done wildcard game against the red-hot St. Louis Cardinals in Tuesday to earn the right to take on San...
    Moderate Democrat Joe Manchin spelled out his opposition to President Biden's massive spending plans on Thursday, warning his colleagues against fostering an 'entitlement mentality' and saying he could only support a $1.5 trillion package - $2 trillion less than the White House wants. The West Virginia senator is one of the key votes standing in the way of Biden's entire domestic policy agenda. The impasse between moderate Democrats and progressives also threatens to derail a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill. Manchin told reporters on Capitol Hill that he could only back a spending bill that cost $1.5 trillion and demanded that key welfare provisions be means tested. 'I cannot accept our economy or basically our society moving towards an entitlement mentality ... that you're entitled,' he said. Instead, he added that he was in favor of helping people who also made an effort to help themselves.      He has been circulating his $1.5 trillion plan since July, setting out his red lines. They include means testing on new programs, including health care, child care and education. Sen. Joe Manchin told reporters...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Scam victims come from all walks of life, education levels and backgrounds. So why do some people fall for a scam while others do not? “We have a miscalculation on your tax file, you owe us some money,” said Jackie, explaining what a caller claiming to be an IRS agent told her. READ MORE: Man Who Suffered Severe Burns Returns To Miami To Reunite With Medical Staff Who Helped Save His Life At Kendall Regional Medical Center It was actually a con artist who demanded $5,000. “If you don’t pay this, we’re going to file a lawsuit against you for $75,000,” Jackie recalled the scammer saying. Jackie ended up paying the money. A new study from the Better Business Bureau and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or FINRA is shedding light on why she did. “Certain people are more vulnerable to certain types of scams,” said Gary Mottola, the FINRA Investor Education Foundation’s research director. Mottola and other researchers interviewed people contacted by con artists. They found those who lost money were less likely to question authority....

    Miranda Kerr Jokes Ex Orlando Bloom Is Her Annoying Brother, Says She Loves Katy Perry More Data Shows Many Have Returned To The Office – Except This One Group The Los Angeles Lakers sacrificed a tremendous amount of youth this offseason. By trading for Russell Westbrook and signing veterans like Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard and Trevor Ariza, they pushed the average age of their team to 30.6 years old, according to RealGM. By comparison, the second-oldest team in the NBA is the Miami Heat at 28.8 years old, and with three roster spots left to fill, the Lakers could get even older.  Age wasn't something the Lakers necessarily sought out intentionally. Instead, as owner Jeanie Buss told Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic, it was a financial reality facing a team paying three players (Westbrook, LeBron James and Anthony Davis) max salaries.  "We're over the cap," Buss said. "We have really no room. When we made that trade (for Westbrook), we knew we'd have to fill the roster with seven or eight players at the veterans minimum. And so trying...

    07/23/2021 at 4:38 PM CEST . Espanyol midfielder Sergi Darder affirmed this Friday at the Marbella concentration that the dressing room does not know now “if they will fight to go to Europe or to avoid relegation, but the mentality is to go all out from day one“. The blue and white footballer, in any case, insisted that the group assumes the difficulty of the First Division. “We are psyched with what is to come. We know that it is much harder than Second and we must be aware of it, take a step forward and maintain all the good that we did, “he reflected.

    Simone Biles. Gregory Bull/AP Images Simone Biles withdrew from the women's gymnastics team event, citing mental concerns. Hours before, Biles said she gets nervous doing her skills, fearing something going wrong. Biles said on Tuesday that she felt anxious about the tremendous expectations placed on her. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Simone Biles withdrew from the women's gymnastics team event, citing mental health concerns. Biles first left the floor with a trainer before it was announced that she had pulled out of the event. Afterward, Biles said she was mentally "not there," and that she had been anxious and stressed throughout the week. In an interview with NBC that aired Monday night, hours before the gymnastics team event, Biles said that, at age 24, she had begun to get nervous about her skills. "I'm a little bit more scared of my skills now," Biles said. "Because whenever I was younger, I was pretty fearless. But now I'm just like, 'Okay, I'm getting older. This could go wrong, this could go wrong, that could do this.' And...
    Ups and downs are normal parts of running a business. Having a 40-year-long career as a businessperson is plenty of time to give way under a down. It’s clear that Roberto Maggio never did, if not from the fact that he’s still in business than from the fact that he’s referred to as “the man who never gave up.” Question: What have those 40 years meant to you? Roberto Maggio: A long experience. It allowed me to collect anecdotes and teachings that can be useful, or at least of interest, not only for those approaching the business world but also for those who are simply intrigued. I am also lucky enough to enrich this knowledge with new experiences. I get them from my travels around the world, which I document through the lens of the camera. Q: Is that how the Other Places project got started? Roberto Maggio: I created a website to host a collection of my photos. I also launched a message on social media to collaborate on the project via the hashtag #otherplacesnet. The feedback from all...
    Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images Megan Fox responded to the backlash she received for calling Donald Trump a “legend” — faulting her critics for having a “burn a witch at the stake mentality.” Fox took to Instagram on Wednesday night to clarify that she does not align herself “with any political party or individual politicians,” yet was merely stating, “an observable fact.” While on Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Fox described her experience at the UFC 264 match between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier in Las Vegas this weekend, sharing that she sat near the former president. “I was in a row with [Justin] Bieber, and Trump was also in my row,” she said. “He had, like, 30 Secret Service with him.” “He was a legend. That arena was very supportive of Trump when he came in,” she continued. “I was like, I don’t know how I feel about it, because if someone is a target, then I’m like, I could be harmed because I’m adjacent to where he is. So I was worried about my own safety, that’s all I was caring about. But yeah,...

Moore said he’s stayed “even-keeled” throughout his career and has never “been overly excited about something,” which isn’t the way anyone would describe Smith’s approach to the game. Moore said that one thing he’s learned from Smith is that he has to be able to take some of what Smith brought to the table despite being more...
    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Chicago Alderman Raymond Lopez (D) said that Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) policies have “put the entire city under siege” and that “the Democratic Party on so many levels seems to be enamored with the mentality of being enablers to criminality.” Lopez said, “The only thing that is equitable about what the mayor’s policies have been is to put the entire city under siege and to spread fear and violence into every neighborhood, so much so that it’s now commonplace and doesn’t even raise an eye nationally.” He added that history has proven his criticisms of the mayor on crime correct, such as the lack of preparation for riots last year, “and even some of my fellow Democrats privately will concede that they wish that we did more to make our neighborhoods safe again. The problem is that the Democratic Party on so many levels seems to be enamored with the mentality of being enablers to criminality. And I am proof that you don’t have to cozy up to criminals...

    Lynda R. Williams is the president of NOBLE, which works to address community-police relations and issues facing Black officers. Middle Tennessee State Lynda Williams spent 29 years with the United States Secret Service before retiring in 2017. As president of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, she now works to reform policing. Williams spoke with Insider about the defunding debate, how to break cops' "warrior mentality," and how social media impacts policing. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. High-profile police killings over the last year have sent protesters into the streets to call for defunding or abolishing departments across the US. To Lynda R. Williams, a former law enforcement official who now works to reform policing, those demands close off an opportunity to rebuild trust between officers and the people they serve.  "Everybody has a different definition of defunding the police," Williams, 29-year veteran of the US Secret Service, told Insider. "Just like terrorism is a word, but it doesn't have a solid definition. If I ask my college students, they'd say, 'let's do...
    Bears fans are already in love with the idea of quarterback Justin Fields. Matt Nagy seems to be in complete agreement after watching him practice.  It seems like forever since the Bears had a starting quarterback they could believe in. Matt Nagy’s recent words on rookie signal-caller Justin Fields could signal that Chicago’s quarterback drought is nearing an end. Fields’ talent was on full display in Wednesday’s practice when he unleashed a particularly impressive deep throw down the sideline to wideout Damiere Byrd. Nagy didn’t hesitate in his praise of the former Ohio State star, telling reporters Fields has “that mentality to rip your heart out.” Those who watched Fields at Ohio State know this is all too true. Just ask Clemson about that mentality after he threw six touchdowns in the College Football Playoff semifinals to lead the Buckeyes to the National Championship Game last season. Touting him as a killer on the field should also endear him to Chicago’s blue-collar fan base. Bears fans have naturally gravitated toward tough players over the years. Bears fans will be happy...
    'Even though I'm a criminal defense attorney, it sounds like a desperation move,' said one lawyer. Christopher Grider said he came to Washington on Jan. 6 with no intention of rioting. But he got caught up in the mob of angry supporters of Donald Trump as they surged into the U.S. Capitol, breaking through police barriers and smashing through doors. It wasn't his fault, he said, that he ended up inside the building with a yellow "Don't Tread on Me" flag around his neck as lawmakers ran for their lives. Grider, 39, a winery owner and former school teacher in Texas is among at least a dozen Capitol riot defendants identified by The Associated Press who have claimed their presence in the building was a result of being "caught up" in the hysteria of the crowd or that they were pushed inside by sheer force. For some, blaming the mob is part of an attempt to restore reputations tarnished by their presence at an event of such infamy. Others may...
    China has called certain Australian politicians troublemakers and urged them to 'shake off the Cold War mentality' amid fierce tensions between the two nations. It comes after Home Affairs Secretary Mike Pezzullo declared the world's 'drums of war' were beating and that Australia must prepare for conflict in the region. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian was asked about Mr Pezzullo's remarks in a press conference on Wednesday and gave a pointed response. 'Some individual politicians in Australia, out of their selfish interests, are keen to make statements that incite confrontation and hype up threat of war, which is extremely irresponsible,' he said.

    LEGENDARY Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admitted some of his signings 'weren't the best players'. But Fergie also revealed he was ok with that as long as the stars had 'a mental toughness about them' like his own. 2Sir Alex Ferguson admitted some of his Man Utd signings were not always the best playersCredit: PA During his 27 years at Old Trafford the Scot signed football geniuses like Cristiano Ronaldo and Eric Cantona. But he also picked up Roy Keane, Nemanja Vidic and Park Ji-Sung who perhaps fell into the 'signed for their mindset' category. And speaking ahead of the release of his new documentary - Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In - the 79-year-old revealed the driving force behind his transfer strategy. He told United's website: "Some players I had were absolute natural footballers, with natural talent. "But there were other players who shared my determination, who maybe weren’t the best players but they made themselves the best players, because they had something inside them too. "I go back to one of my first defeats as...
                        Live from Music Row Monday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. –  host Leahy welcomed the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio to outline how Democrat’s continue to chip away at American’s individual freedoms and China’s clever co-opting of its institutions and politicians. Leahy: Crom, if there’s a bad idea, the United States House of Representatives, led by Nancy Pelosi, is certain to pass it. Carmichael: It really is amazing, of course, now she has an agenda. And as I’ve said many times, I’m going to repeat myself yet again, the Democrat Party has become the party of government. And so her agenda is to give the government more power and to make as many people as possible feel beholden to the government. So everything she does is to further the power of government. And to weaken. And by the way, in to weaken the rights of...
    Liverpool’s sixth consecutive loss at home has sparked criticism of Jürgen Klopp’s team. Jamie Carragher, legend ‘red’, commented that the main problem of the players lies in their mentality. “Very often at these stages last season, Liverpool scored late goals, even the year before when they were chasing Manchester City,” the former defender told Sky Sports. “That man [Klopp] He correctly called his side the mindset monsters and they deserved that label, but right now they have a dwarf mindset. Every time there is a little bit of adversity, you fall behind in a game, your team just isn’t dealing well with adversity at any stage of the last three or four months, ”Carragher added. The English see this situation unacceptable. “It’s not acceptable from Liverpool, that kind of performance, and I’ll tell you what, I played for some really poor Liverpool teams.” “These losses, at home, against the level of the opponents, you need to find something from somewhere. It seems that the first four positions are very far away ”, finished the former player. ...

    Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin credited Tom Brady for instilling a winning mentality when he arrived in Tampa Bay. Before Tom Brady arrived, the Buccaneers were a team with potential but little to show for it. They went 7-9 in Bruce Arians’ first season as head coach and finished third in the NFC South. After Brady arrived, the team improved to 11-5 and stormed through the playoffs towards Super Bowl triumph. It wasn’t just Brady throwing the ball that made the difference. According to wide receiver Chris Godwin, it was the mentality he brought along. “I think the biggest thing that he brought was the mentality of expecting to win over hoping to win,” Godwin said during an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show. “We’ve had a bunch of talented guys for years but could never really put it together. So the history of the team kinda creeps into your mind. You go into games like, as a competitor you’re like, ‘Yeah we can win this.’ But you’re really just hoping to win. But this year we approached every single...
    Charles Leclerc finished 2 years with Ferrari at the end of 2020. It was a tough season for the team; however, the Monegasque was satisfied with his performance. Ferrari Boss, Mattia Binotto, believes Charles Leclerc will carry the bright torch that was once held by Michael Schumacher. While in conversation with F1’s official podcast Beyond The Grid, Binotto looked back at the time when Schumacher joined Ferrari in 1996 and drew parallels between the German and the Monegasque.

    The Los Angeles Lakers are 9-0 on the road after a 101-90 victory over the Chicago Bulls. They are now 13-4 overall and have not lost even two games in a row in the 2020-21 season. Topping the WC chart, the Lakers are on their way to replicate last season’s success. The architect of these victories is obviously the duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis. However, it was the latter who shined in the game against the Bulls. The men in Golden and Purple enjoyed a dominant first half where they set the ground for victory with a 63-33 score. So what was the strategy that helped them win?
