    At least 26 people have died after torrential rains caused extensive flooding in towns across Appalachia, though the death toll is expected to grow in the coming weeks. Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said Sunday that persistent rain has complicated recovery efforts and that officials will likely be "finding bodies for weeks." KENTUCKY FLOODING DEATH TOLL RISES AS GOVERNOR WARNS IT COULD GET MUCH WORSE "Our death toll right now is at 26, but I know of several additional bodies, and we know it’s going to grow. With the level of water, we’re going to be finding bodies for weeks, many of them swept hundreds of yards, maybe a quarter mile plus from where they were lost," Beshear told NBC's Chuck Todd on Meet the Press.

    CESAR AZPILICUETA is still in talks with Barcelona as his transfer saga continues. There has been no official agreement between Chelsea and Barca, but Nou Camp boss Xavi is not backing down. 1Xavi has his heart set on signing AzpilicuetaCredit: Getty It is thought that Thomas Tuchel would like to keep Azpilicueta at Stamford Bridge. But according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, Xavi remains dead set on landing his compatriot. A report by Spanish news outlet AS stated: 'Xavi has promised the international that he is not going to let him down and that the Kounde operation is independent of his.' Barcelona's pursuit of Azpilicueta has been halted by the signing of Jules Kounde, who Chelsea were originally hoping to nab before the La Liga side snatched him from under their nose.

    Skip Bayless trashed breathless speculation about Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant being traded to the Boston Celtics. “I’m dug in on this. I’m not gonna back off this. Kevin Durant is going nowhere!” said Bayless emphatically during FS1’s Undisputed on Monday. Bayless called the speculation of Durant going to Beantown as “legit,” “valid,” and “enticing,” but in the end it would be silly for the Nets to trade the star player. He said that the Celtics could offer Jayson Tatum, Marcus Smart, Grant Williams and three future first-round draft picks and the Nets would still reject an offer for Durant. “You cannot replace the best player on the planet,” said Bayless. “You can try all that you want, but it just won’t be the same because in the end there’s only one of these guys and they don’t grow on Southern California palm trees.” Bayless went on to say Durant wouldn’t be intrigued by the possibility of putting the Celtics, who lost the 2022 NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors, over the top the way Durant did with the...
    CNN anchor Jim Acosta grilled Marc Lotter, the chief communications chief for the America First Policy Institute, over his organization’s decision to host former President Donald Trump to deliver a policy speech in Washington, D.C., calling it bringing him “back to the scene of the crime.” Trump will be the keynote speaker at AFPI’s “America First Agenda Summit” on Tuesday, and the organization posted a tweet earlier this month welcoming the former president back to Washington. Welcome back to Washington!???????? pic.twitter.com/0YBv2gKwsW — America First Policy Institute (@A1Policy) July 14, 2022 The conference will be Trump’s first visit to the nation’s capital since the ignominious end to his presidency, days after his supporters violently attacked the U.S. Capitol during the certification of the Electoral College votes electing Joe Biden president. During Sunday’s episode of CNN Newsroom, Acosta asked Lotter, who previously served as the strategic communications director for Trump’s 2020 campaign, why AFPI was bringing Trump back to Washington after he “tried to pull off a coup” there. “He’s still the leader of the ‘America First’ movement,” Lotter replied, and...
    A SOUTH African man almost missed out on a mammoth £4.9 million lottery jackpot after he refused to take a call from an unknown number. The man, whose identity has not been revealed, said he would continue to work in the financial industry, despite becoming a millionaire overnight this week. The Pretoria winner spent R7.42 - the equivalent of £7.42 - on a Powerball lottery ticket online through the First National Bank (FNB) app before manually choosing his numbers. But when the FNB tried to contact him the next morning, he ignored the call, thinking it was a telemarketing company trying to hawk a service or product. He eventually picked up his phone, he realised he had won the lottery, as FNB bank officials checked his bank details while on the phone. “I was excited, extremely happy. I have been playing the lottery games since my university days, so it has been many years, and this is the first time I won any jackpot,” the man said.

    Jake Tapper challenged White House economic advisor Cecilia Rouse over the Biden administration’s response to yet another record month of inflation. Inflation rose 9.1% in June, year over year, according to a consumer price index report that was worse than expected. CNBC reported: The consumer price index, a broad measure of everyday goods and services related to the cost of living, soared 9.1% from a year ago, above the 8.8% Dow Jones estimate. That marked the fastest pace for inflation going back to November 1981. Gas prices have dropped moderately in recent weeks, which was not reflected in the report. Still, record prices are creating challenges for millions of Americans. On CNN’s The Lead Wednesday, Tapper welcomed Rouse to discuss the White House’s strategy to get a handle on inflation. “There’s no question inflation is the number one economic challenge we’re facing in this country right now,” Rouse said. “That is why combatting inflation is the president’s number one priority.” Rouse added President Joe Biden is “focused” on tackling energy prices and releasing more crude into the market. She also...
    Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum asked Devin Nunes, the CEO of Trump Media & Technology Group, to reflect on a recent poll showing President Joe Biden’s slumping popularity, but remaining electoral edge over Donald Trump. “Here’s the poll. One more question to you, Devin, this is the poll that Richard mentioned. 2024 election, if it were held today who would you vote for:? 44% Biden, 41% trump. Your reaction to that, Devin?” asked MacCallum, referencing Monday’s New York Times/Siena College poll. “If President Trump decides to get in this race and run, the Republican primary, it would be almost impossible for anybody to mount a serious challenge to him,” replied Nunes, a former Republican congressman from California. “I don’t believe Biden is going to run,” added Nunes, indirectly responding to MacCallum’s question. The same poll also found that 64 percent of Democrats do not want Biden to seek reelection. “I think most Democrats don’t believe he’s going to run. I think they’re trying to decide, do they bail ship from Biden before or after the mid-terms. He’s essentially, do you...
    Never before in U.S. history had a president who lost an election and falsely claimed that he didn’t have so many attorneys who were willing to be a mouthpiece for his conspiracy theories. From Rudy Giuliani to Sidney Powell to Lin Wood to Jenna Ellis to John C. Eastman, Trump’s election lies received a great deal of promotion in the dark corners of the legal profession. But journalist Heidi Przybyla, in a report for Politico published on July 5, stresses that for some “Stop the Steal” lawyers, business is good. Giuliani’s license to practice law has been suspended in New York State as well as Washington, D.C. But Przybyla notes that Michigan-based “Stop the Steal” lawyer Judi Haller is thriving. “Juli Haller was part of Donald Trump’s legal brigade in Michigan, filing a lawsuit alongside the ubiquitous Sidney Powell that claimed absentee vote counts were likely manipulated by a computer algorithm developed by allies of deceased Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chávez,” Przybyla explains. “The lawsuit was quickly deemed baseless, and she was among nine attorneys ordered by a federal judge to...
    Minneapolis (CNN)US home prices ran hot again in April, notching another month of more than 20% year-over-year gains, according to the latest S&P CoreLogic Case Shiller US National Home Price Index data, released Tuesday. Home prices rose 20.4% in April from the year before, compared to a 20.6% rise seen in March and a 20% annual increase posted in February, according to the report.The latest data represents a snapshot of a housing market in transition, even before the Federal Reserve tightened the bolts on monetary policy -- including its largest interest rate hike in almost three decades -- throwing cool water on the housing market in the process. The dream of owning a home is out of reach for 4 million Americans"Back in April, things were still quite strong," said Laila Assanie, senior business economist for the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. "Home sales were robust, prices were rising quite rapidly, demand was strong, and many of the builders were seeing their homes sell for more than the asking price."A lot has changed since then.

    MANDEL NGAN/AFP via Getty Images Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) position as vice chair on the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack has endeared her to many Democrats. The honeymoon ended for some of them on Friday after she praised the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The controversial ruing turned the political world upside down. Abortion laws will now be handled by the states, many of which have already outright banned the procedure. No amount of opposition to former President Donald Trump bought Cheney enough good will with some Democrats to overcome a tweet she sent out after the court’s decision was announced. “I have always been strongly pro-life,” the Wyoming Republican tweeted. “Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court returns power to the states and the people of the states to address the issue of abortion under state law.” I have always been strongly pro-life.

    Carson Daly has revealed that he and his wife, Siri, are still sleeping in separate beds — and he insists it's the 'best thing' that ever happened to them.  The Today host, 48, gave an update on their sleeping arrangements on Friday's show, explaining that he will crash on the couch or in the guest room when he's not with his wife, 41.  'I was served my sleep-divorce papers a few years ago,' he reminded his co-stars.

    A FAMILY who fled war and refugee camps in Africa have won a £2.2 million lottery prize. Aristide Nininahazwe and his partner Esther Mboneye won a luxury house worth £1.5 million plus around £700,000 in cash on the lottery in Australia - but plan to keep working. 2Aristide Nininahazwe and Esther Mboneye along with their daughter TiffanyCredit: 9News 2The couple broke down in tears as they were shown their new homeCredit: 9News The couple, from Burundi, broke down in tears as they were handed the keys to the property at Beck Street at Henley Beach, Adelaide. Their single winning ticket was among 200,000 sold in the Hospital Research Foundation Group Home Lottery, 7News reports. They said that as healthcare workers they bought a ticket because they simply wanted to give back to the medical research charity.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight,” Harvard Professor, economist, Director of the National Economic Council under President Barack Obama, and Treasury Secretary under President Bill Clinton Larry Summers said he’d be shocked if we still didn’t have meaningful inflation in a year and predicted that “we’re still going to have inflation for quite some time to come. And we’re probably going to have a slowing economy as well, so there’s going to be an element of what people call stagflation in our situation.” Summers stated, “I’d be very surprised if we didn’t still have inflation at a meaningful rate a year from now. It may well come down. I think it’s probably likely to come down from the 8%-plus range that it’s been at, but we’re still going to have inflation for quite some time to come. And we’re probably going to have a slowing economy as well, so there’s going to be an element of what people call stagflation in our situation.” He continued, “But, look, Don, what we need to do as a country is not...
    Prince William appears to be still wary of spending time alone with his brother Harry. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked the Cambridges to join them at Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor, on Saturday to celebrate Lilibet's first birthday. 4Meghan Markle and Prince Harry invited the Cambridges to celebrate Lilibet's birthdayCredit: Rex 4Prince William and Kate Middleton went to Wales insteadCredit: Rex 4Harry and William seen in December 2019Credit: Getty - Contributor But William, Kate and two of their three children - Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7, were taking part in Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Wales. The Sussexes then left the United Kingdom without spending any solo time with William, Kate or their children, Page Six reports. The brothers' time apart meant the youngsters didn't get to spend any one-on-one time together with their cousins, Archie, 3, and Lilibet.

    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre wouldn't say on Thursday why President Joe Biden wasn't informed about the baby formula shortage until April as she again struggled to answer question about the administration's response to the crisis. Jean-Pierre was quizzed repeatedly during her daily press briefing on what the president knew, when he knew it, and who exactly told him. And she gave evasive answers, saying it was 'senior staff' who went through 'regular channels' to deliver the information. Her lack of details prompted one White House correspondent to warn her that the journalists would keep pressing her for specifics.   It's not unusual for senior staff to be aware of an issue before the president is made aware of it, given the variety of items an administration deals with on any day. The Biden administration was also dealing with the war in the Ukraine, rising inflation, and supply chain issues. Biden also traveled to Brussels and Poland in March. But Jean-Pierre also wouldn't say who decided to bring it to Biden, what date it happened, and how it's determined to...
    Rescuers pulled 10 people from the James River after they went over Bosh Dam on Monday, May 30, but two women are still missing.  Lauren Winstead, 23, of Henrico County, and Sarah Erway, 28, of Chesterfield County, haven't been seen since going over the 12-feet-high dam just after 3 p.m. on Memorial Day, Henrico police told the Associated Press.  Officials didn't say what kind of craft they were in, but witnesses saw rafts and paddleboards caught in the current beneath Bosher Dam after the incident.  Rescue crews searched for the women late into Monday night and resumed the search early Tuesday morning.  Officials said the James River is running very high at several spots, but the water would have appeared calm from above the dam. That hid the danger of the churning current at the bottom.  Finn Gardner, who lives near Basher Dam, said someone banged on his window to beg for help after 12 people fell into the river on Monday.  "So, we ran out there, and we were trying to help get people out of the water and make sure that everyone...

    The Merseyside in England exploded Thursday night after Everton pulled off a massive comeback against Crystal Place to avoid relegation from the Premier League as fans rushed the pitch while the game was still going on. The Toffees were down 2-0 to the Eagles in the first half before coach Frank Lampard rallied his troops at halftime to stage a dramatic three-goal comeback to avoid relegation heading into the final week. Michael Keane and Richarlison got the party started for Everton in the second half before their No.9, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, fired home a header in the 85th minute, sending Goodison Park into pandemonium.

    Republican lawmakers Marjorie Taylor Greene and Dan Crenshaw traded blows on Twitter as they renewed their bitter feud - this time over a $40 billion Ukrainian aid bill. Crenshaw has clashed repeatedly with rightwing firebrand Greene over her bombastic approach to politics. And on Wednesday, he suggested her opposition to the humanitarian and military assistance bill was part of an effort to woo the Russian establishment and its state-controlled media. 'Still going after that slot on Russia Today huh?' he said as they traded barbs on the wisdom of backing Ukraine. Their spat brought to the surface divisions between Republicans in handling the war in Ukraine, and whether it risked increased blowback from Moscow.  Reps. Dan Crenshaw and Marjorie Taylor Greene went to war on Twitter over Ukraine on Wednesday, exposing divisions in the Republican Party and renewing their bitter feud Crenshaw's comments about funding Ukraine triggered an angry response from Greene And it was a reminder of the way the pair clashed last year when Greene said the former Navy SEAL was 'firing blanks' after he complained about...
    Baseball On opposite ends of the Bay Area, high school baseball was alive, well, and equal parts exhausting and breathtaking Wednesday. From Valley Christian’s Quentin Marsh hitting a two-out, two-run double off the left-field fence to tie the score in the visitor’s half of the seventh inning against Bellarmine to De La Salle rallying for four runs in the home half of the seventh to pull even with San Ramon Valley, the drama just kept thickening. When darkness finally arrived, De La Salle had rallied again to tie the score in the eighth on Anthony Martinez’s two-run homer and won 10-9 on a bases-loaded walk in the ninth. The Spartans advanced to play host to Foothill in the East Bay Athletic League final Friday. Valley Christian, ranked second by the Bay Area News Group, wasn’t able to finish off fourth-ranked Bellarmine in an epic West Catholic Athletic League semifinal. But victory is within reach. When the umpires called the game because of darkness about 10 minutes after 8 – more than four hours after the first pitch – Valley...
    Morsa Images | Digitalvision | Getty Images There's no turning back from the workplace changes brought about by the "Great Resignation," according to the expert who coined the term. Organizational psychologist Anthony Klotz predicted in May 2021 that the Covid-19 pandemic would lead to pent-up resignations. Since that time, millions of Americans have quit their jobs. A record 4.5 million walked away in March alone. The initial surge was due to the backlog of resignations since workers weren't quitting during the height of the pandemic, he explained. They were also burned out, unhappy and reevaluating their lives. Many employers have adapted to meet workers' needs, albeit it slowly in some cases. They are now addressing employee wellness, including mental and financial health, and are offering remote work opportunities. "The pandemic brought the future of work into the present of work," said Klotz, a management professor at Texas A&M University's Mays Business School.

    In the previous round, an initial beatdown left the Atlanta Hawks beaten down, as if they appreciated their limitations. This time around, the Miami Heat are finding themselves with an opponent after a blowout Game 1 loss that believes it has the answers for something better, even as it continues in the absence of All-Star center Joel Embiid. To the Philadelphia 76ers, or at least some 76ers, Erik Spoelstra’s team is hardly an unsolvable riddle, even after Monday night’s 106-92 loss to the Heat. “They’re going to fold,” neophyte 76ers center Paul Reed said as the teams turn their attention to Wednesday’s 7:30 p.m. Game 2 at FTX Arena in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal. Wait? What? There was some context to Reed’s bravado, just as there was with similar sentiment elsewhere on the 76ers roster. “Honestly, I think we can definitely beat this team,” Reed said. “We go out there and be more physical than them and play more aggressive, keep them on their heels, they’re going to fold.” Yet when the Heat could have done just that in...
    (CNN)An elderly Shanghai resident was mistakenly declared dead and taken to a morgue in a body bag, in the latest sign of dysfunction in the Covid-stricken city where millions of people remain under government-enforced lockdown.Video footage, shot by a bystander, shows the moment several workers dressed head-to-toe in protective gear recoil as they realize the man is still alive. The footage has since gone viral on Chinese social media, sparking horror and outrage.The video, posted on Sunday, shows the head of the man -- a nursing home resident -- appearing from the yellow body bag as the workers lift it from a vehicle. The person filming the video, apparently from a nearby building, can be heard saying, "The nursing home is such a mess. They sent a living person on a hearse and said they were dead. The undertaker staff said they were still moving ... It is irresponsible, really irresponsible."On China's Twitter-like platform Weibo, many expressed disbelief such a grave mistake could have happened -- especially in Shanghai, which has long been seen as China's most progressive and modern...

    Ever go to the grocery store because that’s part of your normal routine, but as you walk the aisles you realize you don’t really need anything? You’ve got eggs and orange juice in the fridge, meat in the freezer, and bread and fruit on the counter. That’s when you find yourself walking the aisles looking for a deal (maybe a buy one, get one free promotion), or trying to get creative with dinner recipes. Picture Dolphins general manager Chris Grier as that aimless shopper during the 2022 NFL draft because that’s basically where Miami’s roster is heading into the summer. Miami’s depth chart is pretty deep. I’m not saying the Dolphins roster is perfect, but there’s proven talent, and young developmental players at just about every position, in every unit. For example, Tua Tagovailoa is one of the few young NFL quarterbacks with a winning record (13-8) early in his career. He’s still improving, and this new run-heavy, play-action based offense should cater to his strengths and mask his weaknesses. But if he falters Teddy Bridgewater has proven he’s reliable...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki reconfirmed that President Joe Biden will be attending the White House Correspondents' Dinner after news broke that his top medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci would skip the Saturday night event over COVID concerns. 'He has made the decision that he wants to attend, in a safe way, the White House Correspondents' Dinner to show his support, showcase his support for a free press,' Psaki said Wednesday, noting the particular importance of reporters' coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine. She continued that it was important to Biden to show, after former President Donald Trump skipped the media dinner during his one term. 'That does stand in stark constrast to his predecessor, who not only questioned the legitimacy of the press on a nearly daily basis, but also never attended the dinner, I don't believe,' the press secretary added. 'So he felt that was important and made a risk assessment to do that in consultation with his doctors and healthcare team.' Psaki added that the president will take additional precautions including possibly wearing a...
    Chris Wallace has revealed he still does not know if his future lies at CNN or 'some place else' - four days after its streaming service flopped after just three weeks. The news anchor, 74, who ditched Fox News after 18 years for a $5million job at CNN+, said he was 'in good shape' and was 'going to be fine' regardless. But he warned he was concerned for members of his team as well as the hundreds of others left in the lurch when the 'vanity project' was axed on Thursday. Bosses dumped the $300million initial investment after just three weeks amid feeble subscriber figures that were as low as 150,000. It spat in the face of former chiefs such as Jeff Zucker, who had negotiated pumping $1billion into it over four years. The ex-president of CNN Worldwide is also said to have blanked his old friend Warner Brothers Discovery CEO David Zaslav since he was ousted in February.

    DENVER (CBS4) – The Justice Department has filed an appeal that seeks to reverse a judge’s recent ruling that ended the nation’s mask mandate on public transit. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had asked the department to appeal the decision, issuing a statement Wednesday that the mandate “remains necessary for the public health.” (credit: CBS) Here in Colorado, the COVID testing positivity rate is on the rise again, nearing 5%. As fewer public places and agencies are requiring masks in our state as well, Dr. Reggie Washington says we’re not completely out of the woods yet. “Omicron is still in the environment, in the community and it’s not going away,” Washington said. He also told CBS4’s Mekialaya White masking is only one of the tools that is being used to keep the pandemic in check. (credit: CBS) “Socially distancing, not exposing yourself to someone who is sick… and certainly being vaccinated, those are very important still.” Washington says, if it’s recommended for you, get a booster shot. “The CDC recommends anyone over the age...
    At 101 years old, Virginia "Ginny" Oliver is still taking to the sea to pursue her passion for lobster fishing. Born in June 1920, Ginny is known for her sharp mind, quick wit, and talent on the Maine coastal waters. She usually lobsters close to 200 pots three days a week, according to a report. CORPSES OF TIED-UP CHILDREN UNCOVERED AFTER MULTIPLE 911 HANG-UP CALLS Her son Max, 79, handles the pots of lobsters while Ginny bands them.

    Once again, Nets head coach Steve Nash said injured star Ben Simmons is still a ways away from making his season debut. And once again, a series of reputable reports suggest otherwise. Quite frankly, no one knows what to believe as it pertains to Simmons, the 25-year-old Australian All-Star forward who has been recovering from a herniated disk in his lower back. Simmons was still limited to only individual rehab work at Thursday’s practice at Brooklyn’s HSS Training Facility. “He’s still not working with the group, so to speak,” Nash said after practice. “He’s with the group, watching, observing, taking everything in, but his physical plan is still individual.” Nets veteran guard Goran Dragic arrived at Nets practice early on Thursday and said Simmons was not at the facility while the team played pickup and practiced. That makes it near impossible to believe Simmons could be ready to take the floor in 11 days, which is the timeline The Athletic’s Shams Charania provided on Thursday, and even more impossible to believe that Simmons could ramp-up to playing five-on-five basketball by...

    Jimmy Kimmel went after Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) for calling his past critiques of Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO) “highly gendered.” Kimmel and Greene got in a bit of a feud last week, as Greene filed a report with the U.S. Capitol Police after Kimmel joked that she should be slapped by Will Smith. “Meanwhile, I had a whole thing with Marjorie Taylor Greene and the Temple of Dumb this weekend,” Kimmel said on Monday night, explaining the situation. “You may have heard, The congress-monster is not happy about a comment I made about her on the show. She even called the cops on me. Me, she would like arrested, but the people who attacked the Capitol? It’s time to drop that already.” Kimmel went on to play a clip of Greene speaking to a reporter, in which she said, “You know what I think? I think the American people are fed up with this overdramatization of a riot that happened here at the Capitol one time.” “One time! If it happens again, we’ll look at it!” Kimmel cracked. “I feel like...

    BERLIN (AP) — Negotiations between scientists and governments over a key United Nations climate report were going down to the wire Sunday, as officials from major emerging economies insisted that it should recognize their right to development. The latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a U.N.-backed science body, is meant to show the paths by which the world can stay within the temperature limits agreed in the 2015 Paris accord. The agreement aims to cap global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 Fahrenheit) this century. But with temperatures already more than 1.1C higher than the pre-industrial baseline, many experts say that’s only possible with drastic cuts to greenhouse gas emissions. The closed-doors meeting was meant to wrap up Friday so that the report could be presented to the public on Monday. But several observers, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the proceedings, told The Associated Press that the talks were still far from finished with less than 24 hours to go before the publication deadline. One senior climate scientist said...

It like doesn’t quite fit, but it does.

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics posted a farewell photo on social media featuring pitching ace Chris Bassitt and their former superstar slugging Matts, third baseman Matt Chapman and first baseman Matt Olson, after trading them away in cost-cutting moves so familiar to this low-budget franchise. Missing in the mix: departed manager Bob Melvin, who left in October to take over the San Diego Padres. “Those are guys that are tough to replace, but we have a job here now,’’ Chad Pinder said. “We still have to go to work every single day. We are preparing for April 7, we are preparing for the season just the same. … We acknowledge this happened, but we acknowledge that there’s still a job to do.” Meanwhile, the A’s welcomed back a pair of veterans who have meant so much to the franchise: catcher Stephen Vogt and infielder Jed Lowrie. Former outfielder Mark Kotsay was promoted from third base coach to replace Melvin and will be challenged with a young roster. “I always accept challenges, and I think my mindset...
    Gen. Tod Wolters, the head of U.S. European Command, believes the United States will likely need to deploy additional troops to Europe in the future in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Wolters, who testified in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee along with Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost, the commander of U.S. Transportation Command, provided committee members with an updated overview of the situation in Ukraine and its overarching effect on Europe and NATO itself. He noted that the U.S. has already increased its presence in the continent to more than 100,000, but he warned that that might not be enough. BIDEN'S PROPOSED $773 BILLION PENTAGON BUDGET, A 1.5% REAL INCREASE, DRAWS FIRE FROM GOP LAWMAKERS “I think what we need to do from a U.S. force perspective is look at what takes place in Europe following the completion of Ukraine-Russia scenario and examine the European contributions and, based off the breadth and depth of the European contributions, be prepared to adjust the U.S. contributions,” Wolters said. “And my suspicion is we’re going to still need more.” The...

    Ireland has been insisting all week that its scrum is world class. The evidence was iffy last Saturday as the Irish scrum was dominated by England’s seven forwards and a winger combo at Twickenham. The Irish were wheeled, twisted, and collapsed, and got on the wrong side of the match officials. The six penalties and one free kick conceded were a big factor in 14-man England staying in the Six Nations contest until very late. Ireland prevailed 32-15 in the game score but its scrum was sterilized. “You don’t become a bad scrum overnight,” reserve hooker Rob Herring said. Straight after the game, coach Andy Farrell said he wasn’t concerned about the scrum but promised to “get to the bottom of it” before they face Scotland on Saturday at Lansdowne Road in the last round. The autopsy was thorough. Players, coaches and referees had input. They resolved a need to keep the scrum square, show its solid and unshakeable to the referee. If a mistake is made, to not keep flogging it. Also, communicate better with the referee if...
    VIDEO4:1404:14Jim Cramer issues warning for investors still betting on high-growth tech stocksMad Money with Jim Cramer CNBC's Jim Cramer on Thursday cautioned investors that buying the dip on high-growth tech stocks is a losing strategy in today's turbulent market. "The era of beat and raise and buy no matter what … is over for the formerly high-flying growth stocks. There's still plenty of other stocks out there, but if you're still betting on these bouncing back … I don't think it's going to work," the "Mad Money" host said. Growth stocks are particularly susceptible to inflation, Cramer said, because it hits the value of future earnings. "You may think these companies are the greatest things since sliced bread, but the pros know not to pay as much for unprofitable sliced bread when there's an inflation spiral," the host added. Cramer said falls in shares of Okta and Snowflake — whose chief executives were both on "Mad Money" Wednesday evening — signified the last straw for investors who purchase beaten-up high growth tech stocks and try to cash in later.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — More school districts in Illinois are going mask optional after the CDC last week updated its COVID-19 guidance, but Chicago Public Schools will still require masks for students, teachers, and staff. CBS 2’s Mugo Odigwe reports some CPS parents want things to stay that way for the rest of the school year. READ MORE: Illinois And Chicago Mask Mandates Lifted Monday: Here's What You Need To KnowIt’s a side of the masking debate we don’t see often. A small group gathered outside City Hall on Monday in support of keeping the mask mandate in place at CPS.
