    MORE than three-fifths of UK women don’t say what they are thinking on sensitive issues because they are scared they might get into trouble.

    Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates has warned there is a 'way above five percent' risk the world has not yet seen the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The tech mogul and philanthropist said he did not want to sound 'doom and gloom' but warned there was a risk an 'even more transmissive and even more fatal' variant could be generated. 'We're still at risk of this pandemic generating a variant that would be even more transmissive and even more fatal,' Gates told The Financial Times on Saturday.  'It's not likely, I don't want to be a voice of doom and gloom, but it's way above a 5 percent risk that this pandemic, we haven't even seen the worst of it.'

    Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates has warned there is a 'way above five per cent' risk the world has not yet seen the worst of the Covid pandemic. The tech mogul and philanthropist said he did not want to sound 'doom and gloom' but warned there was a risk an 'even more transmissive and even more fatal' variant could be generated.

    Mrs Brown's Boys' star Brendan O'Carroll has been accused of making an 'incredibly racist remark' about US actor and director Tyler Perry during a live chat on The One Show. BBC viewers blasted the Irish comedian for joking about his black co-star's 'colour' when they appeared together to promote new Netflix movie A Madea Homecoming. The pair appeared side by side in a video call into the One Show, which aired at 7pm last night. But while some viewers were angered by the remark, others hit out at BBC presenters Lauren Laverne and Harry Judd for not stamping out the slur. It comes as Mrs Brown's Boys is reportedly returning to the Corporation as a full series for the first time in nine years. O'Carroll, appearing with Perry via video-link, was asked if he thought his fellow guest could feature in Mrs Brown's Boys. The 66-year-old pointed to his face and said: 'So far we haven't had anyone of his colour in there so I don't know if we could have him in. 'But you know what, I'd love that,...
    Jen Psaki said that the Biden administration will not be funding crack pipe distribution and that the matter is 'not an issue' after Sen. Marsha Blackburn said that she will hold up a bill to keep the government funded due to a harm reduction program.  Blackburn, R-Tenn., placed a hold on a continuing resolution to fund the government until Health and Human Services agrees to restructure its harm reduction program so it does not fund distribution of any drug paraphernalia.  'What is happening here is the potential to hold up funding the government and important programs around an issue that is not an issue. Because we've been very clear that we are not providing funding for crack pipes,' the White House press secretary said in her daily briefing on Tuesday.   The Senate is aiming to pass a three-week spending bill by Feb. 18, when the current funding bill expires, while lawmakers work on a full-year budget. While no single senator can stop legislation, one vote against cutting out the procedural hurdles could drag the process out beyond that date.  HHS...

    WHETHER you were an A-grade student in sex-ed class or you got a lecture from your parents about the birds and the bees, chances are what we learned way back when is still with us today. But it seems we've been lied to in one way or another and LELO’s sex and relationship expert, Kate Moyle, has debunked some of the most common myths about sex. 2Kate Moyle, sex and relationship expert at LELO, has debunked some of the most common myths about sexCredit: Kate Moyle The 'pull out method' is a reliable form of contraception There are many types of contraception including condoms, the pill and the IUD, just to name a few. But many people rely on the "pull out method" to help prevent pregnancy, although Kate says it's simply not reliable. This refers to when two people have unprotected sex and the man pulls out right before ejaculation. But according to  Planned Parenthood 22/100 people every year will get pregnant from using the pull-out method, says Kate. "This is due to the fact that...

    The 1619 Project won the Pulitzer Prize in 2019. It was praised by some as shining a light on untold history, but lambasted by others, including former President Donald Trump, for what he said was a jaundiced view of the US The founder of The 1619 Project has claimed that Americans have 'been taught the history of a country that does not exist', defending her controversial work for The New York Times but admitting that it was not objective. Nikole Hannah-Jones won a Pulitzer for her reporting reframing the history of the United States, which put far greater emphasis on the impact of slavery. Published in August 2019, to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the English colony of Virginia, the work has been criticized by some academics for its claims, and angered many others who saw it as unpatriotic. Hannah-Jones, 45, has rarely been out of the headlines since, and on Tuesday she told the Associated Press that the ongoing debate was unsurprising. 'We've been taught the history of a country that...
    Claridge's star chef has been sacked from his £150-a-head restaurant because bosses refuse to allow him to turn the restaurant fully vegan. Daniel Humm, 45, will leave his post at Davies and Brook at the end of December following tense talks with the five-star hotel's management. The vegan chef wanted to create a fully plant-based kitchen at the hotel's  fine-dining restaurant. But bosses said 'this is not the path we wish to follow here at Claridge's at the moment' in a statement posted to Twitter. The hotel and Mr Humm have 'mutually' decided to part ways as the US-born chef aims to bring a 'bold new vision' of fully plant-based eating to London. The statement added: 'We wish to thank Daniel Humm and his extraordinary team at Davies and Brook for what they have created here at Claridge's since they opened in 2019, gaining accolades along the way under challenging circumstances.

    Over two days in the summer of 1910, wildfires roared across the bone-dry forests of the inland Northwestern U.S., the Rockies, and parts of British Columbia. Whole towns burned. The blazes scorched 3 million acres of forest, an area the size of Connecticut, and left behind a legacy that profoundly changed how the U.S. managed wildfires—and ultimately how fires behave today. The Big Burn shook firefighting agencies and officials, most notably the newly formed U.S. Forest Service and its leaders. As those who had witnessed The Big Burn rose through the pre-World War II Forest Service ranks, a firm and unyielding policy rose with them: Forest fires were to be put out. All of them. By 10 a.m. the morning after they had been discovered. While not widely known outside the Forest Service, the “10 a.m. policy” is one of the most consequential environmental actions in American history. This absolutist fire suppression ideology, later publicized by Smokey Bear, has as its origin the Big Burn complex of forest fires in 1910 and its roots in 19th-century settler colonialism. The aftermath...
    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asserted Sunday that not only is the war in Afghanistan not ending with the Aug. 31 U.S. withdrawal, it is only going to get worse. After a suicide bombing at the airport in Kabul killed 13 American service members, Graham warned of "the parade of horribles that are about to unfold" as a result of President Biden’s decisions. US CARRIES OUT KABUL AIRSTRIKE AGAINST ISIS-K SUICIDE BOMBER THAT THREATENED AIRPORT, US OFFICIAL CONFIRMS "President Biden said that he wanted to take this, Afghanistan, off the plate for future presidents. He’s done the exact opposite," Graham told CBS’ "Face the Nation" on Sunday. "For the next 20 years, American presidents will be dealing with this catastrophe in Afghanistan. This war has not ended, we’ve entered into a new deadly chapter. Terrorists are now in charge of Afghanistan." MCCARTHY SLAMS BIDEN'S AFGHANISTAN WITHDRAWAL AS ‘PARTISAN, POLITICAL DECISION DESIGNED FOR A PHOTO-OP’ Graham said that the U.S. has "set the conditions for another 9/11" with the way they have handled the withdrawal, and that he has "never been more...
    The Denver Broncos have been rumored to be a possible landing spot for Aaron Rodgers should the Green Bay Packers finally decide to trade the reigning MVP. Broncos linebacker Von Miller told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Saturday he knows what Rodgers could bring to any team – let alone his own. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "It’s crazy to think about, you know, getting an Aaron Rodgers," Miller told the newspaper. "You put him on any team in the league and he changes that team." The Broncos have Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater on the roster.

    President Joe Biden explained he'll wear a face mask outdoors out of precaution, agreed America is not racist and defended his policy on the border.  In a wide-ranging interview on NBC's 'Today Show,' conducted for his 100th day in office, Biden talked about why he would still wear a face mask outside despite the new CDC lines, continued to blame the Trump administration for the problem at the Southern border - which he refused to call a crisis, and explained his view of the role of government in the lives of Americans. The president said he wears a mask - even though new guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say vaccinated people can remove them outdoors - because people come up to chat with him.  'The likelihood of my being outside and people not coming up to me, is not very, very high,' he told NBC's Craig Melvin, in an interview that was taped Thursday at the White House and aired Friday on the 'Today Show.' On the first day the new guidelines went into affect, Biden deliberately...
    EXCLUSIVE: Despite multiple bombshell developments this week in the case of a California mother who has been missing for more than three months, her brother-in-law said Thursday that he's "lost all faith" in the local police department to solve this case. "We were hoping for some positive feedback or something -- and there was no positive input on anything," Richard Drouaillet, Maya Millete's brother-in-law, told Fox News after he and his wife met with police in Chula Vista, near San Diego.  "They just took our information on where we searched. We even asked them some serious questions. We went in there with a few questions of our own, and they couldn't answer anything."

    Winter is coming and so is the prospect of a “twindemic.” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and an expert in infectious diseases for the last four decades, told CNBC’s Shepard Smith Monday evening that it was more critical than ever to wear to do these five things: wear a mask, social distance, avoid crowded spaces, do things outdoors where possible, and wash your hands frequently. “I think we’re facing a whole lot of trouble,” Fauci said. “We have a baseline of infections now that vary between 40,000 and 50,000 per day. That’s a bad place to be when you’re going into the cooler weather of the fall, and the colder weather of the winter. In addition, we would like to see the percent positivity be coming down.” Over 215,000 have died in the U.S. from COVID-19. “ ‘We have a baseline of infections now that vary between 40,000 and 50,000 per day. That’s a bad place to be.’ ” — Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy...
    WITH the UK average dress size now a 16, reports of Jacqueline Jossa being called “plus-sized” last week sparked outrage.

    As quite a few ponder the stop of the globe, offered how 2020 has absent so far, researchers theorizing about the universe’s demise consider they may perhaps know how it will all complete: with a kind of explosion we have under no circumstances found right before. The end of the universe will apparently be marked by a recently-theorized type of supernova, courtesy of so-termed black dwarfs, according to a new paper in the journal Regular Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. As the universe slowly dies, and lurches into a cold, dormant state, with temperatures everywhere you go approaching complete zero (−273.15 degrees Celsius, −459.67 Fahrenheit) these black dwarfs will have interaction in some of the slowest-burning explosions possible.  When stars die, depending on their size and composition, they can explode in supernovae. But smaller sized stars, which do not possess the requisite large aspects to make nuclear fusion in their cores, change into burnt-out husks known as white dwarfs.

    LUCIFER showrunner Joe Henderson insisted “we've not spoiled much at all” after giving away a major twist about evil twin Michael. The writer admitted the introduction of the newest antagonist had caused the production team to "back and forth" a lot after the season five trailer was released. 3Tom Ellis returns as Lucifer AND as his twin brother Michael When the trailer for the fifth season of Netflix series Lucifer dropped last month, fans of the show were surprised to discover it divulged one of the biggest twists.  However, Lucifer’s co-showrunner, alongside Ildy Modrovich, Joe Henderson has defended giving away the huge Michael twist and promised viewers there are still plenty of twists and turns to come.

    "Dirty Jobs" host Mike Rowe told Sean Hannity this week that the long-running reality show was meant to highlight little-seen careers and tasks that are important to keeping America moving, as well as the idea of risk in everyday life. The "Hannity" host highlighted the importance of essential workers during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. "I think ... if we ever stopped, [if] manufacturers stopped manufacturing and packers stopped packing and farmers stopped farming and truckers stopped trucking, New York, where I am, would have died," he said. LA COUNCIL TAKES STEP TOWARD SENDING UNARMED SERVICE PROVIDERS TO SOME 911 CALLS: REPORTS "Look, that was the premise of 'Dirty Jobs' from the start," Rowe said, "was just to shine a light on people who are keeping the lights on, usually out of sight, out of mind." Rowe and Hannity then discussed "Deadliest Catch," a show (narrated by Rowe) about the dangerous world of crab fishing before turning to the concept of risk. "Risk is always with us," Rowe said. "And in the age of coronavirus, we suddenly are realizing that we have to balance our willingness to assume risk with...
    On Tuesday, the FBI determined that an alleged “noose” found in the garage stall of NASCAR’s only black driver, Bubba Wallace, had been in the garage stall since at least October 2019 and NASCAR said in a statement that the “noose” was actually a garage door pull. Despite the findings determining the alleged “noose” was part of the garage stall, MSNBC’s Al Sharpton continued to question the findings. Sharpton highlighted Wednesday on “Morning Joe” that both the FBI and NASCAR continued to refer to what was found in the stall as a “noose.” He also suggested someone assigned Wallace, who the MSNBC host referred to as a “victim and possible target,” the garage with a noose, and said he does not think the investigation is closed. “The FBI identified it as a noose. NASCAR said it was a noose or went along with the FBI’s characterization. It was a noose,” Sharpton emphasized. “So, the question is, even if they did not know that Bubba Wallace was going to use that stall, why was a noose in the stall? It’s clear...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state has seen an “alarming spike” in domestic violence reports during the COVID-19 crisis. “The COVID-19 DV task force chaired by @melissadderosa has issued recommendations that NY will adopt. We will make services more survivor centered and individualized,” the Democratic lawmaker tweeted TWTR, +0.99% on Saturday. Mentions of the new coronavirus have cropped up in calls, texts and online chats to the National Domestic Violence Hotline in recent months, as public-health experts urge social distancing and staying home to stem the disease’s spread. One woman told an advocate that COVID-19 had impacted her plans to leave her relationship upon her graduation in May, according to excerpts from the hotline’s log shared with MarketWatch. Her abusive partner was now home 24/7 after being laid off from his job, she said, and had also prohibited her from going to work. “ Domestic-violence advocates worry that confining people with their abusers could exacerbate the frequency and intensity of abuse, as the pandemic’s economic fallout further threatens survivors’ financial stability. ” A female caller...
    The nation’s capital is bracing for what could be its largest protest yet on Saturday since the death of George Floyd, expanding a massive fenced perimeter around the White House, even as they send home hundreds of active-duty troops who were stationed outside the city. Over 10 days of protest, the border outside the White House has progressively been pushed back with extensive fencing and barricades. It now extends to the far outskirts of a park complex known as the Ellipse near the National Mall. Law enforcement officials said they’d pushed the barrier back even further in anticipation of a major event on Saturday. “We have a lot of public, open-source information to suggest that the event on this upcoming Saturday may be one of the largest that we’ve had in the city,” Peter Newsham, chief of police of the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, said at a press conference on Thursday morning. It was not clear how many would show up to Saturday’s demonstrations but #1MillionDCSaturday was trending on Twitter in a call for 1 million people...
