    Cori Bush is still standing by her calls to defund the police, even after many of her Democratic colleagues have dropped the movement following a sharp drop-off in support for stripping law enforcement funding. The Missouri representative, who was adopted by the progressive squad when she was sworn into the House in 2021, said people are too caught up on the word 'defund' as she promoted her new book on Good Morning America on Tuesday. Bush said that the movement calling for defunding of police is really just a moniker for Americans pleading that the U.S. focus on the problem of police brutality in the country, especially toward communities of color. The movement garnered an immense amount of attention the summer following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 25, 2020. But 'defund police' quickly became unpopular, even among Democratic communities, as crime continued to spike in cities across the country over the last two years. 'You're one of the few Democrats who still says 'let's defund the police.' Are you worried at all that that could...
    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Dr. Anthony Fauci added another heated clash to their growing list of contentious exchanges on Wednesday. Fauci was testifying before a Senate committee on Wednesday when he and Paul got into fiery back-and-forths about Fauci’s view on immunology, as well as whether anyone in the FDA had financial conflict of interests stemming from the Covid-19 vaccine. Paul began his questioning by replaying old clips of Fauci. In one, he said that a previous flu infection is the best way to fight future infections, more so than vaccination. “When people decry vaccine hesitancy, it’s coming from the gobbledygook that you give us. You’re not paying attention to the science,” Paul said. “The very basic science is that previous infection provides a level of immunity. If you ignore that in your studies, if you don’t present that in your committees, you’re not being truthful.” Fauci appeared genuinely perplexed when he got a chance to respond, saying he’s never questioned “fundamental immunology” and he even has some credible expertise on the subject. “I have never, ever denied fundamental...
    After Labor Day, California health officials expect to quickly get to work on the next expansive phase of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign: distributing and administering newly authorized, Omicron-specific booster shots. While there are still a few hurdles to clear before officials start doling out the doses, the expectation is that eligible residents will be able to roll up their sleeves come mid-September. “Because vaccinations do remain our best defense against severe illness, we’re pleased to report that the updated Omicron vaccine boosters should be available very soon,” Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said Tuesday. The L.A. County Department of Public Health has already pre-ordered its full initial allocation of about 170,000 doses of the Omicron booster. Science & Medicine U.S. authorizes updated COVID-19 boosters targeting newest variants The new U.S. boosters are combination shots, with half the original vaccine recipe and half protection against the most contagious Omicron versions. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration Wednesday authorized the updated booster — a bivalent vaccine meant to target both the original coronavirus strain as...
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) wouldn’t definitively say if she will endorse President Joe Biden if he decides to seek reelection in 2024. Ocasio-Cortez gave an interview to CNN’s Dana Bash on Sunday for State of the Union, and after running through a myriad of topics, the CNN anchor asked the congresswoman if she will back Biden if he runs for president again. Ocasio-Cortez’s response was extremely non-committal. If the president chooses to run again in 2024, I mean — first of all, I’m focused on winning this majority right now and preserving a majority this year in 2022. So we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it, but I think if the president has a vision and that’s something we’re all certainly willing to entertain and examine when the time comes. Bash noted Ocasio-Cortez’s answer was “not a ‘yes,'” and the congresswoman reiterated that “I think we should endorse when we get to it.” “I believe that the president has been doing a very good job so far,” she said. “And should he run again…we’ll take a look at...
    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that she would not commit to endorsing President Joe Biden for 2024 until the time came. Ocasio-Cortez said, “Our party is changing, our party is dynamic, and millennials are deeply underrepresented in Congress compared to baby boomers and gen-xers back when they were our age, frankly. At the end of the day, we need to have a generational shift in the United States Congress in order to have a policy shift in the United States Congress.” Anchor Dana Bash said, “Before I go, I just want to ask about President Biden. He is saying he’s going to run again in 2024. Will you support him?” Ocasio-Cortez said, “You know, if the president chooses to run again in 2024, I mean, first of all, I’m focused on winning this majority right now and preserving a majority this year in 2022. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. But I think if the president has a vision and that’s something we’re all certainly willing to entertain and examine...
    Washington (CNN)New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday would not commit to backing President Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election, saying instead that "we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.""I think if the President has a vision, then that's something certainly we're all willing to entertain and examine when the time comes," Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat who wields a significant amount of influence over the party's progressive wing, told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" when asked if she plans to support Biden in his 2024 reelection bid. "That's not a yes," Bash said, to which the congresswoman replied: "We should endorse when we get to it, but I believe that the President's been doing a very good job so far, and, you know, should he run again, I think that I, you know, I think ... we'll take a look at it."But right now, we need to focus on winning a majority instead of a presidential election," she added, referring to this year's November midterm elections. The White House said last year that Biden intends...
    With coronavirus-positive hospitalizations increasing nationwide, some are asking whether a second COVID-19 booster shot will be made available to all younger adults under age 50. Currently, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a second booster for anyone 50 and older, as well as immunocompromised people 12 and older, at least four months after a first booster. The CDC also recently recommended a first booster shot for children age 5 to 11 after completing their primary vaccination series. Officials and scientists have said the most convincing evidence to support a second booster shot has been seen in older adults and those with weakened immune systems; there have not been much data showing a benefit for younger adults. Dr. Ashish Jha, the White House COVID-19 response coordinator, said a decision on widening availability of a second booster is up to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the CDC.

    On this week’s broadcast of “Sunday Night in America” on Fox News Channel, host Trey Gowdy issued a plea for change in the wake of last week’s mass shooting at a Texas elementary school that left 19 children and two teachers dead. During his monologue about the sanctity of life, he called on Americans to feel the pain of the families who lost loved ones in the Uvalde shooting so they could “get angry and tired and be resolved enough to stop the killing of schoolchildren.” “There is no freedom, there is no pursuit of happiness without life,” Gowdy outlined. “And yet, here we are again and again and again burying children. This country cured diseases no one thought curable, split an atom, and liberated and rebuilt a continent. This country sacrificed so other people oceans away would have life and be free. There is seemingly nothing that we cannot do except keep children alive while simply attending elementary school.” “Hearing that children were killed again saddens every person of good conscience,” he added. “But we should force ourselves to...

    Authorities are re-opening an investigation into the mysterious death of Casey White's ex-girlfriend in 2008 as the hunt for the murder suspect and the female jail guard that let him out continues for the seventh day. The Limestone County Sheriff's Office says it will reopen the investigation into the death of Christy Shelton. Casey, 38, was there when Shelton was shot in the chest with a sawed-off shotgun. Her death was ruled a suicide, but her family never believed the story, WAFF reports. Casey has a history of violence with partners, having shot at his ex-girlfriend during a crime spree in which he killed a dog and held her roommates at gunpoint. The 2015 incident culminated in the 6ft 9in 'monster' being sentenced to 75 years in prison on charges including attempted murder. The search for Casey and guard Vicky White, 56, is intensifying as Lauderdale County deputies joined forces with the US Marshals, the Secret Service and other agencies to locate the fugitive pair. The two developed a secret 'special relationship' during phone calls while Casey was being held...
    We've all been there – you're so hungry that you start overreacting to minor annoyances and snapping at people. Now, scientists have studied worms to help unravel the mystery of why we act irrationally when we're 'hangry.' Their findings reveal that proteins in intestinal cells move dynamically to transmit signals about hunger, driving worms to cross toxic barriers to get a meal. While the study focused on worms, the researchers from the Salk Institute believe a similar mechanism may also occur in humans. Scientists have studied worms to help unravel the mystery of why we act irrationally when we're 'hangry.' Their findings reveal that proteins in intestinal cells move dynamically to transmit signals about hunger, driving worms to cross toxic barriers to get a meal 'The sub-cellular movement of molecules could be driving these decisions and is maybe fundamental to all animal species.' The team used a tiny worm called Caenorhabditis elegans – one of the simplest forms of life we know, thanks to its limited neurons and cells. In the study, the researchers created a barrier of copper sulphate –...

    Former President Trump again tossed around the idea that he will run for the presidency in 2024 Thursday, as he said he'd rather be a 'dictator' than a 'dumb person and bragged about 'acing' the aptitude test.  'First they said not too smart,' Trump said, talking about how Democrats and the media described him. 'But then, they made me a dictator instead. Which would you rather be, a dumb person or a dictator? Perhaps a dictator would be better. I don't want to be a dumb person.' The former president was delivering an address at the Heritage Foundation retreat at the Ritz-Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida.  He bemoaned that no one calls for invoking the 25th Amendment against President Biden the way they did him after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. 'They don't think about it out now - the 25th amendment,' he told the crowd. 'They would mention it anytime I had a great idea, the 25th amendment, there's something wrong with him. That's why I took the aptitude test and I aced it according to Doc Ronny,' referring to...
    Soulja Boy's secret girlfriend says she has been left brokenhearted by his baby news and only discovered he was having a child when he posted a gender reveal video on Instagram. Aliyah Hayes, 29, told DailyMail.com that she has been in an on/off relationship with the rapper, 31, for more than a decade and said they recently discussed marriage and children. But her world was shattered last month when the star announced his baby news on social media, without telling her first. She says the bombshell video left her physically sick and says she had no idea that there was anything between Soulja Boy – real name DeAndre Cortez Way - and the mother of his child, an LA-based hairstylist named Jackie. Aliyah told DailyMail.com that everything appeared normal when she spent the night with the rapper a few days before the gender reveal and had plans to meet up with him that evening. Since the reveal, the Crank That rapper has bombarded her with texts and begged her to continue their relationship but has refused to apologize for what...
    CHIPOTLE fans might want to rethink heading to the restaurant if they planned on getting a certain dish. It turns out they can only enjoy a Chipotle quesadilla if they ordered ahead. 2A Chipotle employee named Siena said in a video customers get so mad when she tells them they can't order a quesadilla in storeCredit: @sienamiaok/TikTok 2Siena explained they take too much time to make, especially if they were in a rushCredit: Chipotle A woman named Siena, who claimed to work at Chipotle, said quesadillas are online-only items and customers get really upset when they can't order them in-store. In a TikTok exemplifying this, Siena wrote the message: "POV: You tell someone you have to order a quesadilla online," while an audio clip of an angry customer yelling played in the background. Many people took to the comment section of the video to question the policy, while one suggested they should just take quesadillas off the menu altogether to prevent issues. A fellow Chiptole employee chimed in on Siena's video as well, saying: "I work...
    A SUBWAY employee revealed what happens when you're too busy on your phone to pay attention to what you order. "Please don't be like this," a Subway employee captioned her video in which she played the roles of both an employee and customer ordering a sub. 4A Subway employee shares what happens when you don't pay attention ordering your sub 4The customer was too busy on their phone to order the correct sub they wanted In the reenactment, the employee took all the right measures while making the order. She asked which sub the customer would like, what toppings they want, and then checked them out, all while the customer was staring down at their phone.

    A man with her protective face mask walks in Vellaces neighborhood after new restrictions came into force as Spain sees record daily coronavirus (Covid-19) cases, in Madrid, Spain on September 21, 2020. (Photo by BurakAnadolu Agency | Anadolu Agency | Getty Images One of the great mysteries that has emerged from the Covid-19 pandemic — and one that's still being investigated by epidemiologists and virologists — is why some people catch Covid and others don't, even when they're equally exposed to the virus. Many of us know entire households who caught Covid and had to isolate over the pandemic, but there are also multiple anecdotes of couples, families and colleagues where some people caught the virus — but not everyone. Indeed, Danny Altmann, professor of immunology at Imperial College London, told CNBC that studies indicate the likelihood of becoming infected within a household once one case is positive is "not as high as you'd imagine."'Never Covid' peopleAn increasing amount of research is being devoted to the reasons why some people never seem to get Covid — a so-called "never Covid" cohort....
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki has refused to speculate when Americans might follow the UK and finally get back to normal by ditching masks and COVID passports, despite a slowdown in cases.  Asked on Fox News's America's Newsroom on Thursday whether the US could expect to follow the UK's example by scrapping COVID restrictions, Psaki said 'we want to get back to a point where we’re not wearing masks' but went on to describe the current situation in the US as 'the height of a pandemic'. A day after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that England will scrap all restrictions, including mandatory isolation - she refused to be drawn on a timeline for when Americans might expect to experience the same hope of normalcy.  Emphasizing the importance of vaccination, Psaki went on to say: 'We don’t want to live like this. You heard the president say ‘we don’t want to live like this forever. 'We want to get back to a point where we’re not wearing masks, of course. Where we are not worried about our kids being in...
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren left open the possibility of supporting primary challenges to Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin in an interview Monday. Warren emphasized the need to get the Democrats' voting reform bill through Congress, suggesting Manchin and Sinema's actions this week could determine whether she would support a primary against them. LIBERAL MEDIA SCREAM: MSNBC'S LAUGHABLE CHARGE SINEMA A WHITE SUPREMACIST "We’ll address that when we get past this week," she said on CBS Mornings. "This is about our democracy. That's the whole premise of how we have a government — is the consent of the governed. And that means that every American citizen has a right to vote and a right to get that vote counted." This week, the Senate will consider the House version of the voting reform legislation passed last week. Warren said that all 50 Senate Democrats have agreed to the voting reform. Last year, Manchin notably opposed the For The People Act, which was the voting reform legislation Democrats championed at the time. They are currently pursuing a different...
    A TIKTOKER who claims to be a Chick-fil-A employee revealed how the popular fast-food restaurant supposedly makes its lemonade. There are no fresh lemons to be seen, and the internet is not happy. 4A person who claimed to work at Chick-fil-A shared how the restaurant supposedly makes lemonadeCredit: @bigniyyyyy/TikTok 4She poured the ingredients together, added tap water, and then mixedCredit: @bigniyyyyy/TikTok The apparent Chick-fil-A lemonade recipe was shared on the TikTok account of @bigniyyyyy, and it has garnered a great deal of attention.  The video showed the worker pouring a yellow liquid from a plastic bag into a bin and then adding a white substance, which is likely sugar, to the liquid. Next, she added tap water to the bin and mixed all the ingredients together with a whisk. The worker didn’t seem to be pleased with the lemonade, however, as in the caption of the video, she wrote: “Y’all love chick fil a lemonade” with two sick emojis. Many viewers shared her sentiment. “I thought it was fresh…” one disappointed user wrote, with many sharing they had the same...
                 The author of “Hillbilly Elegy, who is one of the four major Republican candidates running to replace Ohio Republican Sen. Robert J. Portman, spoke out Wednesday on Twitter about the first anniversary of the storming of the Capitol. “Hi, guys. Tomorrow is the anniversary of January the 6th, the most traumatic moment in the history of American democracy,” said James D. “JD” Vance, who served a combat tour in Iraq as a Marine public affairs NCO. “So traumatic in fact that the Left has felt the need to talk about it eight times a day for the past year,” he said “It’s often framed as an assault on our democracy, but the assault on our democracy that too few people are willing to talk about is the fact that dozens of nonviolent protestors on January the 6th are being held in disgusting conditions in Washington, D.C., jails,” he said. Vance said he was concerned about the treatment of the protesters now held in custody. “No Democrats and too few Republicans are willing to speak up for them. They’re...
    SACRAMENTO —  Emal Salarzai woke up in the middle of the night a few weeks ago feeling like his skull was burning, a heat so real he went to the mirror and began shaving off his hair. “I was thinking about my mom and my dad,” he said, “I am the only son, the only child.” Kabul had fallen two months earlier, and his parents were trapped in Afghanistan. They still are. The Taliban is searching for his father and two uncles, he said, all of whom helped the American regime — as did he, working with the U.S. military to train Afghan troops in English and computing. His mother, Masoma, 56, incapacitated by heart disease and diabetes, could not understand why others have been able to land coveted seats on outbound flights when they have not. When Salarzai, 34, speaks with her sporadically on WhatsApp and Signal from Elk Grove, a suburb of Sacramento that is his home, she asks him why he hasn’t been able to help. “Every time, these are her words,” said Salarzai. “When will...
    An unidentified man at a Turning Point USA event in Nampa, Idaho, asks Charlie Kirk: 'When do we get to use the guns?' The politics of eliminationism—in which ordinary democratic discourse is replaced by the constant drumbeat of demonization that depicts one’s political opponents as inhuman objects fit only for extermination—has been growing steadily in America for well over a decade, reaching a fever pitch during Donald Trump’s tenure in the White House. But now, in the post-Trump era, his rabid fans have ripped off the mask of plausible deniability and are now openly calling for killing liberals and Trump critics—which includes anyone who believes he lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden. Much of this toxic discourse is occurring in the more extreme corners of the internet, but on Monday at a “Critical Racism Tour” event in Nampa, Idaho, it was blurted out into the open when an audience member asked Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk: “When do we get to use the guns? … How many elections are they gonna steal before we kill these people?” Kirk replied with...
    When Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk spoke at a far-right event in Boise, Idaho, this week, he took questions from people in the audience — including a man who made it clear that he was ready to resort to violence over lies about the 2020 election. Media Matters highlighted the clip on its website. Echoing MAGA Republicans' false and debunked claims of voter fraud, and hinting at animosity toward vaccine mandates, the man told Kirk, "At this point, we're living under corporate and medical fascism. This is tyranny. When do we get to use the guns?…. How many elections are they going to steal before we kill these people?" Kirk responded, "I'm going to denounce that," but he nonetheless used the man's remarks as an opportunity to bash liberals and progressives, offer some inflammatory rhetoric of his own and claim that progressives were provoking the man's anger. "They are trying to provoke you and everyone here," Kirk told the audience member. "They are trying to make you do something that will be violent that will justify a takeover of...
    Scouting Report: This humidifier helps keep my snotty kids from feeling worse. It's lightweight and incredibly easy to use. My family is prone to snot. We all have seasonal allergies which sometimes turn into sinus infections. My kids are little and go to two different schools with two different germ profiles, so we get colds frequently. Even lately, with kids in masks, we’ve managed three or four summer and early fall colds. My kids also have restrictive airways, a pre-asthma diagnosis that means that, when they get a cold, they get respiratory symptoms like wheezing which can really impact their sleep. We’ve had a few scary nights and even one hospitalization for my son when his cold turned out to be RSV, so I take my kids’ respiratory health really seriously. We registered for this humidifier when we had our daughter and got a second one for our son’s bedroom when he came along. When I have a cold, likely ones passed to me from the darling, germ-infested children, the humidifier travels from their rooms to next to my bed....
    Joe Biden said 'We got all kinds of cables' after being grilled over why he'd ignored a classified memo warning Afghanistan would quickly fall to the Taliban.   The warning, sent via a diplomatic memo, was flagged to the president during a rare press conference Friday. It warned Biden that predictions the Afghan capital of Kabul would hold off the Taliban until the end of the year were far too optimistic, with the city ultimately falling to the extremist group in just five days. 'We've learned over the past 24 hours that there was a dissent cable from the State Department saying that the Taliban would come faster through Afghanistan,' Justin Sink, a correspondent for Bloomberg said at a White House press conference. 'Can you say why after that cable was issued the U.S. didn't do more to get Americans out?' President Joe Biden was asked why Americans weren't evacuated more quickly in light of a warning from U.S. diplomats in Kabul 'We've learned over the past 24 hours that there was a dissent cable from the State Department...

    President Joe Biden pushed back on the assertion that he was on friendly terms with Chinese President Xi Jinping during Wednesday's press conference in Geneva, Switzerland.  Biden was asked by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy if Biden would call Xi 'old friend to old friend, and ask him to open up China to the World Health Organization investigators who are trying to get to the bottom of COVID-19.'  'Let's get something straight,' Biden replied.

    The Daily Caller’s Jorge Ventura spoke to Brooklyn Center residents about recent protests in the wake of the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright, with residents complaining about police crowd control measures. “Throwing tear gas in the middle of a crowd, over to an apartment building is not the way to do it,” Brooklyn Center resident Jamiya Crayton told Ventura. “Kids are in these houses, so we’re coughing all night.” Crayton said police should be less aggressive as they try to control protesters. (RELATED: City Spent Over $9,000 Protecting Home Of Ex-Police Officer Who Shot Daunte Wright) “Crowd control properly, don’t be so aggressive. Act like it’s your kids in here.

    Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio., called out Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday during an appearance on "The Ingraham Angle," after the two engaged in a contentious back and forth at a House Oversight Committee hearing. "In what world does an unelected bureaucrat get to tell American citizens when we can exercise our God-given liberties, when we can exercise our constitutional rights, our First Amendment rights?" Jordan asked Laura Ingraham. The Ohio representative slammed Fauci for giving vague responses as to when various coronavirus restrictions will come to an end, including mandates against church gatherings and small business operations, and questioned when American life would return to pre-pandemic conditions. "American people are tired of this," Jordan said. "And just tell us when it’s going to end, when we get our rights back." MAXINE WATERS SNAPS AT JIM JORDAN AS COVID HEARING WITH FAUCI ERUPTS INTO SHOUTING MATCH: ‘SHUT YOUR MOUTH’ Jordan said that those who question Dr. Fauci’s medical advice and suggestions for curtailing the coronavirus pandemic are oftentimes censored and "attacked," referencing Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, an outspoken critic of Fauci. ...
    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters told Republican Congressman Jim Jordan to 'shut his mouth' when he asked Dr. Fauci when the pandemic will end and America will get their 'liberties' back. The House Coronavirus Crisis Subcommittee descended into chaos on Thursday when Jordan probed the White House COVID advisor on restrictions that have been place for a year. 'We had 15 days to slow the spread turned into one year of lost liberty,' Jordan said during the tense session. 'What metrics, what measures, what has to happen before Americans get their freedoms back?'  'You’re indicating liberty and freedom. I look at it as a public health measure to prevent people from dying and going to hospital,' Fauci told Jordan and said the US will return to normal when enough people are vaccinated.  'You don't think Americans' liberties have been threatened the last year, Dr. Fauci?" Jordan added. "They've been assaulted!".   Fauci then told Jordan 'you're making this personal' when the Ohio Rep. said no one was allowed to criticize him. 'You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth!' Waters...
    Supplies of COVID-19 vaccines in California continue to be in short supply as millions more people became eligible for it this week. But officials said they are hopeful that more vaccine is coming and that California could soon loosen eligibility rules and allow even more people to get shots. The big questions is when. Here is what we know: Where do we stand now? Providers throughout California have administered more than 12.6 million total doses of COVID-19 vaccines — and roughly 1 in 5 residents has gotten at least one shot, Times data show. Over the last week, an average of 286,921 doses were doled out per day statewide. Two of the available vaccines, from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, require two doses, administered weeks apart. The other, from Johnson & Johnson, entails a single shot.When can we expect more supply? That remains the big question. President Biden said last week that by May 1, restrictions on who can make a COVID-19 vaccine appointment will be lifted nationwide and that the current limitations no longer will be needed because...
    We all love a weekend lie‑in, but could a longer snooze on a Sunday morning be pushing you towards the blues? That’s the suggestion from a new U.S. study that found when you sleep is just as important as how much shut-eye you get. People who don’t stick to regular sleeping and waking times are more likely to become depressed than those who do, the findings, just published in the journal NPJ Digital Medicine, and conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan, found. Those who regularly stayed up late, or got the fewest hours of sleep, also scored higher on depression symptoms and lower on daily mood [File photo] ‘This is the first time that a study has shown clearly that disturbed sleep, not necessarily less sleep, can lower mood,’ Srijan Sen, a professor of depression and neurosciences and director of the University of Michigan Depression Center, tells Good Health. The findings were based on the sleep pattern of 2,100 student doctors, who were tracked for a year using digital devices (a Fitbit or an Apple watch) that...

    A MUM has revealed why she openly tells her kids, aged eight and 11, that she is about to have sex.  Writer Jamie Beth Cohen, from Pennsylvania, said her sex life has dramatically improve since making the decision to be honest with her kids about her and her husband’s intimate life.  2Writer Jamie Beth Cohen says she tells her kids when she is about to have sex with her husbandCredit: Facebook Jamie previously preferred to have sex when her kids were out the house at school, sports clubs or playdates, but this hasn’t been possible during the pandemic.  Writing for HuffPost, Jamie said: “A few months into our self-imposed quarantine, a few months in which I felt like having sex with my husband was akin to sneaking around ― and not in the good way, like when you’re 16 and riding on the back of the ‘bad boy’s’ motorcycle ― I decided to tell the kids exactly when we were having sex.” She said that she couldn’t hide it anymore as it felt like “lying” to her children. Jamie revealed...

    A group of maskless business owners in New York demanded health inspectors and sheriff's deputies leave the premises when they interrupted their anti-lockdown meeting. The illegal gathering at Athletes Unleashed in Orchard Park saw around 50 locals meeting to discuss how to circumvent Andrew Cuomo's new 'orange zone' restrictions, which forces schools to go remote and 'high-risk' businesses to close. But when authorities arrived, they were met with protests as the business owners chanted 'get out' and 'we will not comply' during the tense exchange as they were forced out of the building. A group of maskless business owners in New York demanded health inspectors and sheriff's deputies leave the premises when they interrupted their anti-lockdown meeting Footage shows the health inspectors and deputies arriving 20 minutes after the meeting had started, after receiving an anonymous tip-off about the gathering.

Gyms, barbershops and hair salons are among the businesses which...
    NBC correspondent Ken Dilanian dropped a pair of profanities live on air during a Tuesday morning appearance on MSNBC’s “MSNBC Live.” The segment began innocuously with MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin introducing Dilanian, who appeared on screen, with “some new reporting” about “how the Trump administration is handling the transition with the incoming Biden administration.” “Or not handling it, we should say, to a certain extent,” Melvin said. “This time it involves our intelligence community. Ken, what have you learned, sir?” However, the transition to Dilanian appeared to take the NBC reporter by surprise. WATCH: “Oh shit, fuck,” Dilanian whispered as he looked down. An awkward pause of several seconds of dead air ensued, after which an unflappable Melvin calmly said, “OK, uh, I think we lost Ken for a second. We’ll try to get him back there.” (RELATED: Things Get A Little Awkward On MSNBC When Alabama Student Says ‘Jeffrey Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself’ Live On Air) After Dilanian disappeared from the screen, Melvin went on to discuss “new fallout over the election.” Dilanian later addressed the issue via...
    As the country approaches two days without an official winner of the presidential race, the number of states left playing a role in deciding the winner has dwindled down to six. Election officials in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Arizona are all expected to release more results Thursday, though it is unclear if any of the states will be able to call a winner by the end of the night. First up will be Georgia, where election officials said at an early morning press conference that there were just over 60,000 votes left to be counted. The state, which is currently too close to call between President Trump and former Vice President Biden, holds a coveted 16 electoral votes. The state of Pennsylvania is still counting its ballots, as it had planned to be doing at this point in the race. The keystone state, with 20 electoral votes, had never expected to have final results on election night. The state’s Commonwealth Secretary Kathy Boockvar has said throughout the week that “the overwhelming majority” of ballots will be counted by Friday, despite...
    People start to lose their 'get up and go' at the age of 54 — when it becomes harder to motivation yourself to leave the couch and try new things — a study has found. An expert from Norway polled 917 people aged 14–77 to determine how the relationship between passion, grit and a positive mindset changes as we age. They found that passion and grit are strongly correlated early in life, especially among boys, and that youngsters will do the distance to achieve their dreams. However, this tendency fades as we get older, they added. People start to lose their 'get up and go' at the age of 54 — when it becomes harder to motivation yourself to leave the couch and try new things — a study has found 'Our passion controls the direction of the arrow, what we're fired up about and want to achieve,' said paper author and psychologist Hermundur Sigmundsson of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. 'Grit drives our strength, how much effort we are willing to put in to achieve something,' he continued. A correlation between the two...
    VIDEO1:5101:51Jim Cramer is closing his restaurants, hopes to reopen once coronavirus overSquawk on the Street CNBC's Jim Cramer said Friday that he will soon be shuttering his New York restaurants due to the coronavirus pandemic but hopes to restart business when the public-health crisis improves. "I'm closing my restaurants and I'm closing them in 10 days," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street." "I'm mothballing them. When we get a vaccine, I'll reopen." Cramer, an owner in two restaurants in Brooklyn, said he will continue to pay rent while they're not operating. He noted that part of the decision to shutter them was difficulty making the financials work, citing 25% operating limit on indoor dining in the city. "At 50%, you can possibly make it," he said. However, during the pandemic, Cramer also frequently expressed concern about the role of restaurants and bars in facilitating the person-to-person transmission of the coronavirus. "It's just not safe to keep reopening the restaurants and the bars. Every time they reopen, the virus comes roaring back," Cramer said on "Mad Money" on Sept. 21.  He...
    For his opening monologue on Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson pointed out the lack of discussion about a return to the pre-COVID-19 normal. Carlson said many shun those who ask the questions, and the goalposts that define progress on coronavirus are continually shifting. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Have you been to America lately? A lot of Americans really haven’t. For months, most of us have stayed close to home. We had to. So the next time you get on a plane and visit a couple of American cities, you may be surprised, especially if you remember those cities well from before the pandemic. An awful lot has changed in a short time. Many stores and restaurants are closed, you expect that. Churches are locked on Sunday morning. That’s weird. The streets seem empty, except for the parks which are full of the homeless. When you do see people, they tend to be wearing masks and they won’t get close to you. It’s a very strange experience. The country has changed a lot. The...

As tax season winds down, the Internal Revenue Service is gearing up its operations. Load Error The federal tax collector’s plans and procedures have been upended this year, like countless other government agencies and companies contending with the coronavirus pandemic. The IRS temporarily closed offices in March due to the COVID-19 public-health emergency and the filing deadline was pushed from April 15 to July 15. On top of that, lawmakers tasked the agency with distributing millions of stimulus checks, beginning in April. The IRS started reopening its offices last month after 90% of its facilities were closed at the peak of the pandemic. The IRS has processed 130.5 million returns by July...
