    The White House on Thursday faced a series of questions about what would be the total cost of its new student loan forgiveness plan, and refused to say if or when it would provide the information. Officials said Wednesday when President Biden announced the plan that a cost figure wasn't yet available – and that it would depend on factors like how many people took advantage of the new benefit, default rates, and other factors. 'I mean that that is something that the Department of Education is going to lead, because this is something that ... this is an action that clearly just take in the Department of Education. I don't have any more to speak on to that just,' she said at the White House briefing Thursday. She also wouldn't say specifically how it would get paid for, amid new outside estimates that the total price tag could be hundreds of billions.  She also cast Biden's new program as a more responsible alternative to plans that some progressive lawmakers have called for – including having the government forgive up...

    By MATT SEDENSKY TUPELO, Miss. (AP) — There is a prayer Tanya Britton has said in the hazy first moments of morning and in the stillness of the night. She’s said it on her knees before her church’s gold tabernacle and slumped in the embrace of her living room sofa. The words have morphed, sometimes touching her lips and others echoing only in her mind, but one way or another, they’ve repeated, decade after decade after decade. “Whatever I do, let it be for the end of abortion,” 70-year-old Britton prays. “Let it be that one child be saved today. Let it be that Roe v. Wade be overturned.” She hoisted signs outside of clinics, cajoled lawmakers at the statehouse and spread her anti-abortion gospel to anyone who’d listen, repeating her mantra so often she wondered if she’d live long enough to see it come true. Until Friday came and the U.S. Supreme Court ruled. And her prayer was finally answered. “This was my mission,” she said through tears. “I’m one of millions of people in this country who have...
    President Joe Biden suggested Democrats were having political trouble because Americans were unaware of the party's accomplishments.  'We've done one hell of a job,' the president said Thursday afternoon at a high-dollar fundraiser at the Portland Yacht Club, co-hosted by The New Republic's owner and editor Win McCormack and his political consultant wife, Carol Butler.  Biden said that 'because things have moved so rapidly, so profoundly' that 'they don't know a lot about what we've already done.'   He cited some statistics like the creation of 7.9 million jobs, including 430,000 manufacturing jobs, a shrinking unemployment rate and deficit reduction.  The president's Oregon appearance was raising funds for the Democratic Grassroots Victory Fund, the Democratic National Committee's political action committee, in advance of the November 2022 midterm races.  President Joe Biden suggested Democrats were having political trouble because Americans were unaware of the party's accomplishments at a Portland fundraiser Thursday.

    Russian warships skulk on the horizon, slipping in and out of view, torturing beautiful Odessa, the jewel of the Black Sea. Will they launch a missile strike soon? Will there be an amphibious assault? Will paratroopers drop from the skies? And what of Vladimir Putin’s advancing army, held for now at Mykolaiv, 75 miles along the coast? No wonder this seaport’s nerves are frayed. More than 60 per cent of Odessa’s population have already left, many to the relative safety of western Ukraine or beyond its borders. Those who remain are a singularly resolute bunch, brave and bold, even by Ukrainian standards. Some of them hope the Russians will hurry up and attack if they dare.  Russian warships skulk on the horizon, slipping in and out of view, torturing beautiful Odessa, the jewel of the Black Sea ‘Let them come, we are ready to make them pay for what they’ve done to Ukraine,’ says merchant seaman Oleksii Voloshyn, 25, his beckoning hand outstretched towards the sea, defiant as a mafioso. For now the waiting continues. Squinting into pocket telescopes, now...

    The world is unlikely to reach the 'worst case scenario' of climate change by the end of the century, according to a new study, that found efforts to reduce emissions are helping keep warning under control.   The Paris Climate Agreement goal to limit global warming this century to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit over pre-industrial temperatures was set in December 2015. This urged nations to take action to reduce emissions of greenhouse gasses in order to forestal the most extreme climate change scenarios being predicted by scientists at the time - that could see temperatures rise by up to 9 degrees Fahrenheit. However, a new study, by the University of Colorado Boulder, that looked at the latest data on emission levels, found those extreme temperatures, that would have led to a sharp rise in extreme weather events and sea rises, are no longer plausible. The researchers found that the extreme scenarios and temperature increase predictions were based on outdated data from 15 years ago, that didn't take into account recent efforts to reduce emissions, and a move to renewable energy. They said...

    IF you've lived through a house renovation, then you'll know they can be a pretty gruelling process - so it helps if you have DIY experience under your belt to speed things along. Before the pandemic, Ellie Unwin, 24, and Harry Baines, 25, were saving to buy a house that wouldn't need much work done. 8The couple bought their house for £135k in June 2020Credit: Jam Press 8They've now added £45k to the valueCredit: Jam Press 8The couple did a lot of the work themselvesCredit: Jam Press But as prices shot up in the pandemic, the young couple, from Nottinghamshire, decided they opt for a doer-upper instead - even though they had zero DIY experience. In July 2020, they purchased their three-bed semi-detached house for £135,000 - and thanks to their incredible transformation, Ellie and Harry have increased its value by a whopping £45,000. Ellie, who works as an accountant, explained: "When we first got the keys, it was like a building site and we could not live in the house as it was. "The house was very old and outdated,...
    WHEN she first moved into a three-bedroom council house with her family, Sarah O’Brien was in tears every day over the state of the property. With walls covered in old-fashioned woodchip paper, thinning carpets on their last legs and ageing cabinets in the kitchen, it was not the fresh start she was hoping for. 7Sarah O'Brien was 'embarrassed' by the state of her council home before renovating it on a budget The 35-year-old lives near Chester, Cheshire, with husband Adam, 35, a prison officer, her daughter Lilly, 14, from a previous relationship, and the couple’s youngest daughter Honey, five. They moved to the rented property in November 2016 and a year later, the part-time cleaner and education student took matters into her own hands. She says: “The house was grim and got me down big time. I hated it. “For two years, I was in tears every day over it. One day, I grabbed a wallpaper stripper and started taking the woodchip off the walls. “Adam and I ended up stripping every single wall. It was horrendous afterwards. We...
    FROM Tom Cruise’s puffy filler face to Linda Evangelista’s dodgy fat freezing – it’s easy to see when cosmetic treatments have gone awry. But what about when they are done well? 5It’s hard to tell these four women have spent tens of thousands on cosmetic treatments Most of us would be none the wiser if a colleague or friend had a subtle nip here or a tuck there. It’s hard to tell these four women have spent tens of thousands on cosmetic treatments. They have gone under the knife for different reasons – breast enlargement, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and a full body overhaul, including liposuction, a tummy tuck and bum lift. Actress Jamie Lee Curtis, 62, recently slammed the cosmetic surgery craze saying: “The current trend of fillers and procedures, and this obsession with filtering, and the things that we do to adjust our appearance on Zoom are wiping out generations of beauty.” These women, who have all struggled with low self-esteem, don’t all agree with Jamie Lee.

    Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley slammed President Biden on Tuesday for having "failed miserably" on Afghanistan policy, telling "America Reports" the Afghan people and U.S. military have been let down by America being "run out of town." NIKKI HALEY: It didn't have to be this way. In just a few hours, literally, Biden destroyed the progress, the relationships and everything we had done the last 20 years in Afghanistan. And I think about this from the standpoint of, I'm the wife of a combat veteran that served in Afghanistan. All of our military families are very distraught at what we've watched happen and how we basically were run out of town. As a governor who sent units to Afghanistan, promising that we would always hold them up as heroes, that we would always respect them and always have our respect as a country there for them, and I think about how they're let down. I think about as ambassador, when I actually went and visited Afghanistan and the women and girls that I met with, the women...

    PICTURE the scene - you've been messaging a guy for a few weeks, everything seems to be going well, you've met up a couple of times and then BAM. They stop replying to your texts.

    (CNN)The US has now surpassed the devastating milestone of half a million Covid-19 deaths. It's a staggering figure that experts say did not have to be this high."I believe that if you look back historically, we've done worse than most any other country and we're a highly developed, rich country," Dr. Anthony Fauci told George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday."It's so tough to just go back and try and do a metaphorical autopsy on how things went.

    President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci declared Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that the United States had “done worse than most any other country” in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Anchor George Stephanopoulos said, “Five hundred thousand Americans, families grieving all across the country. Did this have to be?” Fauci said, “Well, certainly some of it, but not this bad, George. I believe that if you look back historically, we’ve done worse than most any other country, and we’re a highly developed rich country.” He continued, “There were things back then, if you go back and think about what you might have done, the kind of disparate responses of different states rather than having a unified approach. But it’s so tough to go back and try to do a metaphorical autopsy on how things went. It was just bad. It is bad now.” He added, “I think these numbers are so stunning. George, remember back in the late winter and early spring of 2020 when we were saying we could get as high as 240,000 and...

    President Donald Trump rallied in COVID-19 hotspot Wisconsin Friday as the U.S. officially hit the milestone of more than 9 million confirmed coronavirus cases.  Testing in Wisconsin alone found 5,096 new cases, the second time in the past week the state reached more than 5,000 cases in a single day. The state's record, which was hit Tuesday, is 5,262.  At his Michigan rally earlier, however, Trump falsely pushed that the numbers were inflated thanks to greedy doctors.  'You know, our doctors get more money if someone dies from COVID, you know that right?'

    BERRY CREEK, Calif. —  Frank Martinez considers himself a veteran of California wildfires, both as refugee and responder, feeding fire crews and survivors and running when flames hit too close to home. “We’ve done this before,” Martinez said Thursday morning, sitting with his breathing machine inside a friend’s restaurant. After fleeing from the Bear fire in the early morning darkness Wednesday, the restaurant basement had become his temporary home. He had no idea if his own home was still standing. It would be several hours before he had an answer. Martinez, 55, lives in the rural hills outside of Oroville, where the Bear fire is wreaking destruction. Since 2015, flames have chased him from his double-wide trailer on four separate occasions. And that doesn’t include the time he had to evacuate when the nearby dam threatened to burst. In all of the other blazes, when he’s been able to remain on the acre-plus of parched land he calls home, Martinez has taken in those who had to flee from the surrounding hills and ridges — about 30 people during the...

    Joe Biden (D) experienced another brain freeze moment during the climax of his Democratic National Convention (DNC) address Thursday evening, telling the audience that there has “never been anything we’ve been able to accomplish when we’ve done it together.” While accepting the party’s nomination as its presidential candidate, Biden said the United States is facing four crises, which he is best equipped to fix after decades served in the Senate and White House. Those challenges are, in his words: “the worst pandemic in over 100 years. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The most compelling call for racial justice since the ’60s, and the undeniable realities and just accelerating threats of climate change.” The former vice president emphatically promised victory and unity in the closing minutes of his speech. “I believe there’s only one way forward, as United America — a United America,” he said. “United in our pursuit of a more perfect union. United in our dreams of a better future for us and for our children. United in our determination to make the coming years bright....
