    WORKING during the global pandemic has been tough for everyone, even for furry friends. In fact, a new study shows that employed people are making big life changes to account for their pets because of the pandemic. 3Since the pandemic, more pet owners are wanting a pet-friendly office, according to the studyCredit: Getty 3The study revealed pet-friendly offices can have lots of health benefits for their workersCredit: Getty Ahead of National Pet Day on April 11, OnePoll conducted a survey of 2,000 employed pet owners, on behalf of Vetster, that revealed some pretty interesting tidbits about pets and the workplace. For starters, over two-thirds of pet owners have looked for a more flexible job to care for their pet, while six in 10 people have previously left a job because the office was not pet-friendly. Since the pandemic, when many worked at home with their fur babies, having a pet-friendly office is more important than ever. OnePoll found a whopping 71% of respondents saying that they would benefit more from a pet-friendly office now than before...
    Authorities in Montana will not try to track down a grizzly bear suspected in the fatal mauling of a hiker last week because it did not appear to be a predatory attack, officials say. Father-of-four Craig Clouatre, 40, was found dead Friday, two days after he failed to return from an off-trail hike in densely forested mountains north of Yellowstone National Park. He was from the small city of Livingston, about 30 miles from the mauling site. Tracks left at the scene and the nature of the attack suggest that a grizzly killed him, Park County Sheriff Brad Bichler said Monday.  But Bichler said there was no indication the bear sought out Clouatre, meaning it could have been simply an unlucky encounter. 'This doesn't appear to be an attack where the bear sought out the person,' Bichler said. 'It wasn't like the bear came down into a campground and nabbed someone.' Pictured: Craig Clouatre, 40, of Livingston, reportedly went missing after hiking in the Six Mile Creek area of Paradise Valley on Wednesday Clouatre leaves behind a wife, Jamie, and...
    Late night talk show hosts pulled no punches when it came to reflecting on Will Smith hitting Chris Rock during Sunday night's live Oscars broadcast. On ABC Jimmy Kimmel devoted the bulk of his opening monologue to the incident and summed up the mood succinctly at the start of his show on Monday night. 'It's now a part of our lives forever. We will never stop talking about this. It was so shocking. The only thing I can really compare it to is when Mike Tyson bit Holyfield's ears,' he began.  'It was the Hollywood version of your drunk uncle starting a fight, ruining the wedding and then standing up and giving a long toast to the bride and groom,' Kimmel said to an audience ready to laugh about the slap.  Jimmy Kimmel devoted the bulk of his monologue to the Smith/Rock punch The three main late night talk show hosts addressed each the Oscars slap between Will Smith and Chris Rock during Sunday night's Oscars broadcast Kimmel commented how nobody did anything to stop Smith either during or after his...
    A MOM of twin boys decided to opt-out of the traditional baby crib for her newborns – now they actually fall asleep on their own. Katelyn Parkinson has shared on social media the long list of benefits of the Montessori sleeping method. 5A savvy baby mama revealed she doesn't put her twin boys to sleep in a cribCredit: TikTok/katelynpparkinson99 5Instead, she bought one Montessori floor bed for each baby boyCredit: TikTok/katelynpparkinson99 Instead of cribs, Parkinson invested in Montessori floor beds for her boys ever since they were just four months old. The beds on the ground give babies the freedom to move around without the fear of them falling. She explained in the clip: "We simply tuck them in and walk out." Since the two boys have both their mattresses side by side, it also gives them the chance to fall asleep next to each other.

    The two Arizona sisters who killed themselves at a Swiss suicide clinic last month were scheduled to end their lives together last year, but the trip was delayed due to pandemic travel restrictions, Exit International officials said.      Dr. Lila Ammouri, 54, and nurse Susan Frazier, 49, were originally slated to traveled to Basel, Switzerland in August 2021 to die at the Pegasos Swiss Association assisted suicide clinic, five months before they died on February 11. Philip Nitschke, founder of Exit International, one of the largest assisted suicide clinics in Switzerland whose members can use Pegasos' services, said the sisters reached out to his organization in October 2020 to become members and learn about how they could end their lives. After warning them about the dangerous and legal concerns of killing themselves in the U.S., Nitschke said Ammouri and Frazier opted to travel to Switzerland to die in the Pegasos clinic, since it does not require patients to be terminally-ill or suffering from a life-limiting illness.  He said the sisters had originally scheduled their trip in August 2021, but...

    Wayne Pankratz, the executive director of operations for American Franchise Capital, which owns 50 Applebee's franchises in the Midwest, called on the company to lower wages for workers already hit hard by soaring gas prices and inflation An Applebee's executive caused an uproar when he allegedly told company officials in a leaked email that skyrocketing gas prices and inflation could be used to lower wages for workers already living paycheck to paycheck.  In a copy of the internal email posted on Reddit on Wednesday, Wayne Pankratz, the executive director of operations for American Franchise Capital, which owns 50 Applebee's in the Midwest, allegedly told managers of the fast food chain  that employees and applicants are economically hurting, which he saw as an 'advantage.' 'Most of our employee base and potential employee base live paycheck to paycheck,' the email read. 'Any increase in gas prices cuts into their disposable income.' This week, the average price of a gallon of regular gas in Midwest states hovered near $4, while Los Angeles hit a record $6.011, according to the AAA Gas Price Index. Pankratz allegedly...
    Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said people in Washington, D.C. don't understand how she speaks because they live in a bubble.  'They are disconnected from real Americans, and that is their problem, not mine,' the Georgia Republican told The Washington Times in an interview published Wednesday. 'I believe and share the same thoughts and feelings of the people in our district.'    In her nearly 15 months in Congress, Greene has stood out because she's dabbled in conspiracy theories, gotten into arguments with her peers in the hallways and shouted down President Joe Biden during this month's State of the Union address.  Republican Rep.

    BEING a picky eater prevents millions of Americans from trying new foods - including vegetables, according to new research. While a recent poll suggests one in three Americans refuse to try new veggies, some claim it's a comfort issue, with 16% of those responding they don't know how to cook produce they're unfamiliar with. 1Americans are creatures of habit when it comes to vegetables, new research shows The research, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Bolthouse Farms, explored what motivates cooking habits, as well as relationships with vegetables. More than 2,100 Americans were polled. It was revealed that the most popular produce in the kitchen included potatoes, lettuce, onions, and carrots. Meanwhile, broccoli, spinach, and carrots are the three vegetables Americans are most likely to eat.

    Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said that Ukraine was invaded by Russia because it 'just kept poking the bear' and predicted the Ukrainians can't win the war against Vladimir Putin's forces.  'And now you see Ukraine just kept poking the bear and poking the bear, which is Russia, and Russia invaded and the truth is - and this is a hard truth to accept - there is no win for Ukraine here,' Greene told BKP Politics host Brian K.

    A Wisconsin county supervisor wants to eliminate the Pledge of Allegiance from county board meetings, claiming the recitation is 'divisive.' Heidi Wegleitner has proposed removing the pledge as well as the word 'prayer' from the board rules, which are currently undergoing a biannual redraft. The Dane County Board's executive committee will consider Wegleitner’s proposal at a meeting Thursday, although newly elected supervisors would have the final say following the April 5 election. Dane County Supervisor Heidi Wegleitner (left and right) has proposed removing the Pledge of Allegiance and the word 'prayer' from county board meetings, having deemed them 'divisive' HISTORY OF PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE:  The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy (1855-1931). It was originally published in The Youth's Companion on September 8, 1892. Bellamy had hoped that the pledge would be used by citizens in any country. In its original form it read: 'I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.' In 1923, the words, 'the Flag...
    On Monday, March 21, Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson — President Joe Biden’s nominee to replace the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court — got underway. And some Republican senators, from Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri to Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, have tried to discredit Jackson by claiming that she is soft on crime. But when former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele was interviewed by MSNBC’s Ari Melber on March 21, he dismissed those claims as cheap political theatrics. Melber, himself an attorney, brought Steele on his show “The Beat” along with activist Barbara Arnwine, founder of the Transformative Justice Coalition — and Melber noted that the anti-Jackson view on the far right is that she “loves criminals and wants to make sure they get out of prison right away so they can keep doing crime.” Steele responded, “It’s all politics…. It’s the ongoing trope…. that this is how you own the libs…. over issues like law and order…. Look, the reality is: There is no hook to hang a hat on...
    Giving MDMA to people with post-traumatic stress disorder doubles their chance of getting better through counselling, a study suggested today. Two thirds of PTSD sufferers given a 40mg dose of the party drug before therapy no longer suffered with the condition after two months. Whereas one in three of the control group who received standard counselling were cured over the same period of time. The MDMA combination even worked on patients with the most sever PTSD and those with drug and alcohol abuse problems, experts said.  Researchers said the 'feelings of trust and closeness' caused by the drug helped them open up to psychiatrists and make better progress. MDMA — also known as ecstasy — is popular in rave culture, with people using the drug to boost their energy and feel more connected to the music and other ravers. But there has been a movement in recent years to destigmatise the drug, with experts trialing psychadelics like MDMA and magic mushrooms as therapeutics. University of California experts found two thirds of those receiving MDMA alongside regular PTSD therapy no longer had...
    The owner of a war-zone mobile hospital in eastern Ukraine has told a Ukrainian TV interviewer that he has instructed his doctors to 'castrate' captured Russian soldiers. Gennadiy Druzenko, 49, told Ukraine-24 about his alleged order, but it is unclear if it was bravado or a genuine order that would break the Geneva Conventions.  Discussing captured injured Russian soldiers, Druzenko said: 'I have always been a great humanist and said that if a man is wounded, he is no longer an enemy but a patient. 'But now [I gave] very strict orders to castrate all [captured Russian] men, because they are cockroaches, not people.'

    With their incredible sense of smell, dogs are often used to sniff out various forms of cancer in human breath, blood, and urine. Now, a new study suggests that tiny worms could also be used in the same way to sniff out lung cancer. Researchers from Myongji University in Korea conducted lab experiments with the roundworm C.elegans, and found it wriggles its way towards cancer cells by following an odour trail. Based on the findings, the researchers suggest that a 'worm-on-a-chip' device could offer doctors a non-invasive way to detect and diagnose lung cancer at an earlier stage.

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, when questioned as to why the United States has let in so few Ukrainian refugees, deferred to saying that they needed to apply for the proper programs, while a private charity launched by a college student is attempting to step in. The US has only accepted seven Ukrainian refugees since the war began and some have been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), despite President Joe Biden saying he would welcome those fleeing Russia 's aggression 'with open arms'. Psaki was asked about how Biden's rhetoric matches up with his action, Psaki seemed to think it was a matter of paperwork.   'We are still implementing our immigration laws at the border,' Psaki said when asked.  'When the president says he would welcome refugees, of course he would, but they have to apply through the refugee programs,' she added. Meanwhile, Ukraine Take Shelter, a site begun by two teenaged Harvard students, has begun the efforts of trying to identify families willing to take them in.   White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki holds a news...
    Friday was supposed to be a festive day at Halas Hall, a chance for the Chicago Bears to formally introduce three new additions to their roster. Instead, that gathering was delayed and significantly revised. Defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi, who was supposed to be the headliner of the first free agency class put together by new general manager Ryan Poles, no longer had a contract to sign, no longer had his $26.35 million in guaranteed money on what was supposed to be a three-year, $40 million deal. A little before 11 a.m. Friday, a team spokesman announced Ogunjobi had failed his physical with the team and no longer was a part of the organization’s plans. Poles, who last spoke with reporters at the league’s scouting combine in Indianapolis more than two weeks ago, was not made available for comment on Ogunjobi or any other topics regarding the Bears’ activity in free agency. Poles issued a statement through the team reiterating what he emphasized two days earlier, that “Larry Ogunjobi embodies everything we are looking for in a Bear. He is a...
    Vladimir Putin’s fatal error was assuming everyone in the United States was as weak, venal, oafish, and self-aggrandizing as Donald Trump, when in reality no more than half of us are. Of course, if you’d spent more time around Trump and Steven Seagal than with almost any other American, you’d probably think you could buy off the country for a G.I. Joe Cobra kimono and a jumbo tub of Cool Ranch-flavored Crisco. Sure, Vlad’s campaign to get Trump reelected failed—so Trump wasn’t able to simply hand him Eastern Europe by pulling out of NATO like he’d planned—but Putin probably thought the U.S. was too divided to put up much resistance to his schemes, and then bang-bang, Biden’s silver hammer came down upon his head. And while the globe—and especially Ukraine—has now been served a plate of thin gruel with a side of julienned mule dicks, we do occasionally get to enjoy a soothing sip from a sassy schadenfreude digestif.

    A former prosecutor says a lawsuit filed by Gabby Petito's family against Brian Laundrie's parents is 'meritless', but believes they should be 'crucified in the court of public opinion' if it's proven that they helped him flee.     Gabby's parents, Nichole Schmidt and Joseph Petito filed the civil lawsuit against Chris and Roberta Laundrie last week in Sarasota County, Florida - seven months after their daughter was killed. The lawsuit seeks damages of at least $30,000. They argue that Brian's parents were aware that their son had killed Gabby - assisting him in several attempts to evade authorities that ultimately culminated in his suicide in a Florida swamp. No evidence was included to back up this claim. Mark Eiglarsh, a criminal defense attorney and former Miami-Dade County prosecutor, told Dailymail.com that the filing of the lawsuit is not a surprise as a family in mourning continues to seek justice. But added that without evidence, the lawsuit is meritless.    'In a court of public opinion, this lawsuit may have significant value,' he said. 'But in a court of law, it's meritless.' Eiglarsh said if...

    Donald Trump definitively said that if he runs again for president he would add his former Vice President Mike Pence on the ticket, according to a Wednesday report from The Washington Examiner. 'I don't think the people would accept it,' Trump said in a Tuesday evening interview when asked about potentially running with Pence for a third White House bid. 'Mike and I had a great relationship except for the very important factor that took place at the end. We had a very good relationship,' he added. 'I haven't spoken to him in a long time.' Speaking from Mar-a-Lago, which doubles as his club and political headquarters in Palm Beach, Florida, Trump said there has been friction between him and his former No. 2 since the 2020 election. Trump has consistently blamed Pence for his loss against Joe Biden, claiming he could have overturned the outcome of the 2020 presidential election by delaying certification of the Electoral College results on January 6, 2021. Former President Donald Trump (left) told the Washington Examiner Tuesday that if he runs for president again...

    An ex-convict father accused of running a sex cult out of his daughter's Sarah Lawrence College dormitory once forced a brother and sister to wear diapers as punishment for acting like children, according to court testimony.  Santos Rosario said from the witness stand in Manhattan Federal Court on Monday that Lawrence Ray, the defendant in the high-profile sex trafficking trial that got under way last week, abused him and his two sisters, Felicia and Yalitzia. Ray, 60, has pleaded not guilty to 17 counts ,including sex-trafficking, extortion, money laundering, violent crime in aid of racketeering, racketeering conspiracy and forced labor in a bizarre case that dates back more than a decade.  Santos testified about the diaper incident after a prosecutor brought it up, asking the witness what happened between him and Ray before he escaped from the cult in 2015.

    Most dieters would probably consider a healthy low-fat snack to be more appealing than no food at all. But it might in fact leave them feeling hungrier, experts say. This is because labels such as ‘healthy’ and ‘low fat’ can make people think they have been deprived of a more filling and satisfying meal. The psychological impact of that feeling of missing out can be so powerful it can increase a person’s appetite even more than if they had eaten nothing.

    The White House shut down plans proposed two months before Russia invaded Ukraine to send a 'few hundred' special operation personnel to Kyiv to provide military advice and unconventional warfare training, three separate U.S. officials told Politico. U.S. military officials told lawmakers in December 2021 that they wanted the forces to help Ukraine at a time when Russia had amassed 100,000 troops at the border with Ukraine, but had not yet invaded. White House officials, according to two people familiar with two separate December briefings, were concerned increased troop presence would escalate tensions with Russia – and a congressional aide said Pentagon officials scrapped the plan to deploy to this area due to those concerns. The report notes that Defense Department Secretary Lloyd Austin planned to directly press President Joe Biden to approve the mission that would send hundreds of troops east. At the time the plan was rejected by the White House, the Biden administration was still hoping for a diplomatic solution with Russia that would stop them from invading. A White House spokesperson denied any knowledge of a...
    Dozens of heroic Ukrainian residents brawled with Russian troops in Melitopol on Sunday, two days after their mayor was kidnapped by Moscow's forces.  Video posted online shows a Russian soldier forcefully shoving one protester back into the crowd of demonstrators chanting anti-Moscow slogans. The soldier first pushes the protester back with his hand before using his weapon to scare off other demonstrators who step forward to attack the Russian.  Footage then appears to show the soldier shouting at the crowd, many of whom are waving the yellow and blue Ukrainian flag, to stay back while brandishing his weapon in their direction.  Melitopol residents had gathered for the third day yesterday after Mayor Ivan Fedorov was taken captive on Friday because 'he refused to cooperate with the enemy'. Chilling CCTV footage showed the moment Fedorov had a plastic bag placed over his head as he was escorted out of a building and across Melitopol's Victory Square by 10 armed men. Russia has not commented on the fate of Mr Fedorov.  Ukrainian President Vlodymyr Zelensky has called for help from Germany and France to secure...

    While staying optimistic can be tricky during these uncertain times, it could actually help you to live longer, according to a new study. Researchers from Boston University have found that optimistic people live longer, healthier lives than pessimists, and say it's because they have fewer stressful events to deal with. 'Stress is known to have a negative impact on our health,' explained Dr Lewina Lee, who led the study. 'By looking at whether optimistic people handle day-to-day stressors differently, our findings add to knowledge about how optimism may promote good health as people age.' Researchers from Boston University have found that optimistic people live longer than pessimists, and say it's because they have fewer stressful events to deal with (stock image) Optimism could make you LAZY Thinking too positively can prevent you from reaching your goals, by making you become lazy or complacent, one expert has said.  'There is no doubt that a simplistic view of positive thinking…can be dangerous,' Tim LeBon, a psychologist at City University London, told MailOnline.  'There is plenty of evidence that fantasising about a positive future...
    A flock of yellow-headed blackbirds that crashed into a pavement last month likely did so because the lead bird confused a shiny roof for water - and the rest followed.  The cloud of smoke-like flock of birds hit the ground in the Alvaro Obregon area of Cuauhtemoc, a city in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico on February 7.  Many of the flock are seen flying away but it is thought up to 100 birds were left lying dead on the street, with no clear explanation at the time. A new study, by Harvard University, examined the footage, looked at normal migration patterns and flock dynamics, to better understand why they all fell. The team suggest it was a case of 'follow the leader', as birds don't look far ahead in a flock, instead focusing on what a single lead bird is doing. It is likely the lead bird saw a shiny, reflecting roof on one of the buildings, mistook it for a source of water, and by the time it realised it had made a mistake, it was too long...
    A group of male entrepreneurs are being completely roasted online after they claimed that they find high-earning women with good jobs less attractive. The hosts of the Hardly Initiated podcast - Tysean Jackson and Ryan Catchings, from Atlanta, Georgia - sat down with real estate developer and business/finance consultant Phillip Karaya for a recent episode, and they admitted that they are turned off from hard-working women who 'prioritize their education and job.' They stated that women who are at the top of their careers are 'combative' and often 'tell them what to do' since they 'feel like they need to be the boss.' The three men also said that successful women are 'disqualified' from dating because 'no one wants them' once they have achieved those things.  Their comments have unleashed a furious tirade from listeners and viewers, who branded the men 'insecure,' 'weak,' and 'manipulative.'

    Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Sunday spoke publicly for the first time since resigning over multiple sexual harassment allegations last year, claiming 'cancel culture' was behind politically motivated efforts to remove him as he slammed CNN for firing his brother. 'I've gone through a very difficult time these past few months,' Cuomo began. 'I resigned as governor, the press roasted me, my colleagues were ridiculed. My brother was fired. It was ugly… it was one of the roughest times of my life.'  Speaking from the podium at God's Battalion of Prayer church in Brooklyn, Cuomo quoted the Bible several times as he described his travails then went on the offensive to attack the 'political sharks' in Albany who, he said, 'smelled blood' and exploited the situation for political gain.   'My father used to say that government is an honorable profession but that politics can be a dirty business,' he said. 'That is especially true today when politics is so mean and extreme. When even the Democratic Party chooses to cancel people in the face of disagreement.' Cuomo went on to...
    Two Republican senators were slammed for risking the security of Volodymyr Zelensky after posting photos during a live video call between US lawmakers and the Ukrainian president on Saturday - after the politicians were expressly warned to refrain from sharing information that could jeopardize his safety.  Senators Marco Rubio of Florida and Steve Daines of Montana posted pictures of Zelensky on their respective Twitter accounts while the Zoom meeting was in progress.   Zelensky, who has bravely stayed in Kyiv as Vladimir Putin's forces move toward the capital and bombard many other Ukrainian cities,  has survived three assassination attempts by mercenaries of the Kremlin-backed Wagner group and Chechen special forces, according to The Sunday Times.  The 280-plus senators, House members and staff that tuned in to the virtual meeting, which ended around 10:25am EST, were explicitly asked not to tweet or post pictures of the call while it was in progress, multiple aides told NBC News. '[The] Ukrainian ambassador very intentionally asked each of us on the Zoom to NOT share anything on social media during the meeting to protect the security of President...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday blamed rising gas prices on Vladimir Putin's invasion of the Ukraine as the administration indicated it was considering a ban on Russian oil as punishment on the Kremlin. 'The reason why the price of gas is going up is not because of steps the president has taken they are because President Putin is invading Ukraine, and that is creating a great deal of instability in the global marketplace,' Psaki said. And Cecilia Rouse, the chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, hinted that a ban on Russian oil and gas into the American market was an option. 'We are looking at options that we can take right now, if we were to cut the U.S. consumption of Russian energy - but what's really most important is that we maintain a steady supply of global energy,' she noed. White House press secretary Jen Psaki blamed rising gas prices on Vladimir Putin's invasion of the Ukraine Previously President Joe Biden had said of a ban on Russian energy products: 'nothing is off...

    A Kentucky politician has apologized for making bizarre remarks about the sex life of Jewish women during a floor debate Wednesday, promising that he 'absolutely meant no harm' after multiple Jewish groups condemned his speech. State Rep. Danny Bentley stood on the floor debating House Bill 3, an omnibus anti-abortion bill that passed 77-20 later that day. The Republican lawmaker wrongly claimed that RU-486, or Mifepristone - one of two pills taken to end an early pregnancy - was created during World War II and was originally called Zyklon B, a cyanide-based gas that was used to kill Jews during the Holocaust. Earlier in the day, a Democratic representative had filed an amendment that would exempt Jewish women from the rules, since the faith does not believe that life begins at conception, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. 'In fact the person who developed it was a Jew, since we brought up the Hebrew family today,' Bentley later said, going on to theorize about the sex lives of Jewish women.   'Did you know that a Jewish woman has less cancer of the cervix than...

    During CNN’s State of the Union coverage on Tuesday, CNN Senior Political Correspondent Abby Phillip said President Joe Biden’s speech largely omitted China, and stated that is due to the situation in Ukraine, where the White House doesn’t “want to antagonize China. They want China to help rein Putin in.” After CNN Contributor Evan Osnos stated that Biden argues that “it’s not just authoritarianism in Russia. We’re dealing with a crescent, an arc of authoritarianism.” Phillip stated, “Although, interestingly, he did not mention China really tonight, which is surprising, given how important he views China in the big scheme of things, in terms of authoritarianism versus democracies.” She continued, “And that has to do with Ukraine, too. I think the White House is treading very carefully when it comes to China. They don’t want to antagonize China. They want China to help rein Putin in.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

    Donald Trump Jr. said Russian President Vladimir Putin didn't invade Ukraine under his dad's watch because former President Donald Trump had 'balls.'   'There's a reason it didn't happen under Trump: People understand strength, they understand resolve, they understand balls,' Trump Jr. said as he gave the final speech at four-day Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida.  The younger Trump used his CPAC address to go after President Joe Biden - but to also knock his first son counterpart, Hunter Biden.   Donald Trump Jr. said Russian President Vladimir Putin didn't invade Ukraine under his dad's watch because former President Donald Trump had 'balls'  Trump Jr. kicked off his speech by telling the crowd he was happy to hear that an Alaskan fishing trip with him and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle was auctioned off for $75,000 during the live auction at CPAC's Friday night Ronald Reagan dinner.  'I heard the fishing trip ... went for a lot of money,' Trump Jr. remarked.

    The memo provides "strategic thoughts" on how Democrats should position themselves regarding the COVID-19. The memo warns Democrats that continuing to press for COVID-19 restrictions could have disastrous consequences in the 2022 midterm elections. "After two years that necessitated lockdowns, travel bans, school closures, mask mandates, and nearly a million deaths, nearly every American finally has the tools to protect themselves from this virus," the memo begins. "It's time for Democrats to take credit for ending the COVID crisis phase of the COVID war, point to important victories like vaccine distribution and providing economic stability to Americans, and fully enter the rebuilding phase that comes after any war." The polling company instructs Democrats to "declare the crisis phase of COVID over and push for feeling and acting more normal." "Recognize that people are worn out; and feeling real harm from the years-long restrictions and take their side," the pollster recommends. "Most Americans have personally moved out of crisis mode. Twice as many voters are now more concerned about COVID's effect on the economy (49%) than about someone in their...
    Over multiple nights last August, hundreds of protesters gathered outside the Phi Gamma Delta house in Lincoln, Nebraska, and demanded the university ban the fraternity following reports that a member allegedly raped a 17-year-old girl. “Kick them out!” and “No means no!” students chanted during demonstrations that attracted national media and brought protests to Phi Gamma Delta chapters elsewhere. The fury prompted University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) administrators to shut down the Greek organization—more commonly known as Fiji—pending an investigation into the alleged sexual assault. UNL later suspended the frat’s operations through 2026 over violations stemming from alcohol use. Now Fiji is fighting back in a bizarre lawsuit that accuses university officials of retaliating against them because of members’ support of former President Trump. The federal complaint alleges the university has wrongfully targeted the frat since the January 2017 Women’s March that occurred in cities across the country following Trump’s inauguration. UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green and Andrea Barefield, the director of Student Conduct & Community Standards, are listed as defendants in the suit. The lawsuit claims UNL administrators “engaged in a...
    WAR is stopping aliens from visiting Earth, an expert has claimed. Biopsychologist Dr. Gordon Gallup thinks aliens are deliberately avoiding humans for fear of our hostility. 2If aliens are out there, they may be avoiding usCredit: Getty Images - Getty The DailyMail quoted Dr. Gallup explaining: “If [alien life] exists it may have found us by now and discovered that humans are dangerous, violent and ceaselessly engage in endless bloody conflicts and war, and continually develop even more powerful weapons of mass destruction.” The University of Albany scholar thinks any intelligent aliens would see Earth and fear for their lives. He revealed his theories in an open access paper recently published in the Journal of Astrobiology. He writes: "It would also be obvious, that as a byproduct of increasing pollution, habitat destruction, coupled with endless wars, pillage, death, destruction and the desire for conquest, that humans pose an unparalleled and unprecedented risk not only to other life forms on Earth but to life on other planets." Gallup's views are pretty opposite to Professor Stephen Hawking's who suggested intelligent aliens could attack and...
    Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) claimed at an event earlier this week that Russia is “a communist country” with a starving population, which explains its aggression toward Ukraine. Russia ultimately invaded its neighbor to the west on Wednesday night. Speaking to the Montgomery Chamber of Commerce, Tuberville cast the Russians’ aggressive stance as being driven by the need for arable land, according to 1819 News in Alabama. “He can’t feed his people,” Tuberville said, referencing Russian President Vladimir Putin. “It’s a communist country, so he can’t feed his people, so they need more farmland.” A former KGB officer, Putin has long regarded the collapse of the Soviet Union as a disaster of the first order. “First and foremost it is worth acknowledging that the demise of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century,” he said in 2005. This week, Putin stated that Ukraine isn’t a real country. “Radicals and nationalists, including and primarily those in Ukraine, are taking credit for having gained independence,” he said. “As we can see, this is absolutely wrong. The disintegration of...
    Children release a much lower volume of COVID-19 aerosol particles than adults, potentially reducing their ability to transmit the virus, a new study finds. Researchers from the University of Berlin, in Germany, found that, on average, children release less Covid particles into the air, especially when they are breathing, speaking or singing. Experts believe that people who release lower amounts of aerosol particles when speaking have smaller viral loads, which also means they do not spread the virus at the same level. The findings have big implications on schools and other events and activities mainly populated by children, as Covid transmission may be less of a risk than expected - even when children are no using masks. Researchers found that when children (orange) breath, speak or sing, the emit less Covid aerosol particles than adults (blue) do. Particle rates were similar when test subjects shouted, though Researchers, who published their findings Wednesday in The Journal of the Royal Society, gathered data from 15 adults and 15 children for the study. The children included 11 boys and four girls, all of...
    CHELSEA'S refusal to offer players over the age of 30 could see them lose club captain Cesar Azpilicueta for free this summer. Azpilicueta is out of contract at Chelsea at the end of the season. 1Chelsea's contract policy is likely to see Azpilicueta leave in the summerCredit: Rex The 32-year-old has been offered a two-year deal by Barcelona, plus an option to extend for a third, according to Sport. Chelsea though are claimed to have the 'right of first refusal' and the option to match any offer that comes Azpilicueta's way. It's understood a meeting with Chelsea transfer chief Marina Granovskaia is on the cards, but the Blues are only willing to offer Azpilicueta a one-year deal. The club's over 30 policy on contract extensions mean Azpilicueta seems destined for Barcelona. For several years now the club have enforced a strict strategy of only offering one-year deals to players who have reached 30-years-old. It was put into action just last month as Thiago Silva penned a 12-month extension at 37-years-old. Most read in SportJOSH BOSH Watch female...
