    An unhinged thug stabbed a gay man in the back at the Yankee Stadium subway stop in New York City in what the victim believes was a hate crime as violence surges more than 55 percent compared to last year. The victim Leo Frasier, 33, said that he was returning from work to his Bronx home and headed up the escalator to transfer trains when the shirtless man, who appeared to be in his late teens or early 20s leaned into him. The assailant, whose pants were falling down with his underwear hanging out, was bent over in front of Frasier at first but then straightened up and turned to confront him. Speaking to DailyMail.com, Frasier said: 'He leaned into my personal space, saying he wanted to make sure that I didn't take a picture of him.  'Here he was homophobic and I was, like, I didn't take a photo of you. It was hot, I was tired and I was, like, I'm not the one.' Frasier said to deter the man, he gestured that he had a weapon in...
    It didn’t fully sink in until he read the words aloud to his girlfriend, seeking her opinion on the statement that was about to make it official. Baseball is all Ryan Ripken has known. As the son of Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr., the sport has always been a major part of his life. “Feels like the right time,” the statement began, “and I have a few things I want to get off my chest.” As he read those words — which detailed his decision to retire from professional baseball — the emotions hit. He had been ruminating how to say it publicly for over a month, but hitting post on Instagram and Twitter “kind of made it real,” Ripken told The Baltimore Sun. “For me, I felt so exhausted, so drained,” Ripken said. And then the flood of well-wishers came, from all parts of his career. From travel ball to Indian River State College to the Washington Nationals and Orioles organizations, he realized how many people helped him along the way. Ripken played seven seasons in the minor leagues,...

    She's best known for her role of Siobhan 'Shiv' Roy in dark-comedy series Succession. But Sarah Snook has revealed that she almost didn't play the role, originally turning down the offer when she realised that she would be the only woman in the cast.  Admitting that she 'didn't want to become a prop' amongst all the men, the actress explained that both in the show and real life there are themes of sexism, noting: 'There is so much sexism and so much misogyny against you as a woman'.

    It’s one of the world’s fastest-growing sports, but there’s a chance you haven’t heard of padel… yet. So what is it? Tennis with walls, essentially. It’s played on an enclosed court about three-quarters of the size of a normal tennis court.  The main twist is that you can play the ball off the glass walls, as in squash – so there’s no such thing as ‘out’. That leads to long, fast rallies.  It’s played as a doubles game, using solid, string-less bats and you serve underarm. Scoring is the same as tennis. When was it invented? In 1969, by Mexican businessman Enrique Corcuera, who wanted a tennis court at his Acapulco home, but didn’t have the space – and was worried about losing the ball into his neighbour’s garden.  His wife Viviana, a former Miss Argentina, helped put together the rules, based on a 1920s pastime played on British cruise ships. Judy Murray (pictured) is a backer of padel tennis, while her son Sir Andy has backed Game4Padel, a firm that builds courts for the sport How popular is it?...

    DEPENDING on your hair style and texture it can be quite important to protect and nourish your hair while you sleep. However, deciding on a method to do this can sometimes be a difficult task. You need to consider your hair, and also what styles won’t fall apart as you toss and turn throughout the night. 4Stop sleeping with your hair in a bun, warns MoniqueCredit: TikTok/@moniquemrapier/ 4Maintain your curls by sleeping with a double twistCredit: TikTok/@moniquemrapier/ Posting to TikTok, hair expert Monique Rapier has shared her top methods for protecting your hair while asleep - and no the low bun isn’t one of these as this can actually leave your hair damaged and frizzy. The first protective style Monique suggests is a double twist tied with  a scrunchie. She adds that this is her favourite way to maintain curls, and unlike the bun this won’t make them go frizzy. The second method shared by the hair guru begins with brushing your hair and then oiling the end, then you just put your hair inside a fuzzy sock.  Monique says...

    (CNN)My wife's lymphoma diagnosis and 50th birthday came on the same day in March 2021. Rebecca had been aggressively chasing the cause of the small lump she found in her abdomen. With access to a world-class cancer center and support of family and friends, her chemoimmunotherapy regime was deemed a success after a six-month fight. Remission! Rob RelyeaThis was right around the time that Covid-19 vaccines became widely available. Rebecca's oncologist encouraged her to get her shot ASAP. She participated in a Leukemia & Lymphoma Society study which found that many blood cancer patients' immune systems had a markedly worse antibody response to the vaccine, compared to healthy individuals.Another recent study published in the journal Nature Cancer found that a third shot of vaccine improves immune responses, unless the recipient of that shot is on a specific drug -- which happened to be a key part of my wife's treatment regime. We were left feeling hopeless; Rebecca's test results showed that her condition and her treatment had conspired to prevent her body from mounting a full immune system response...

    Trapped in her cellar for days on end as fierce fighting rages above her head, a Ukrainian grandmother has revealed the true horrors of living in a battlefield. Tatiana Fik fled to her basement more than a week ago when gun fire and explosions shattered her usually peaceful life in the town of Tostyanets in north-eastern Ukraine. Located less than 25 miles from the border and close to the strategically important city of Sumy the town has always had close links to Russia. So nothing could prepare retired shopkeeper Tatiana and her family for the devastating onslaught of battle that has engulfed her and her neighbours since Putin’s tanks came rolling into Ukraine last month. Now the 60-year-old cowers next to racks of preserved vegetables in her freezing cellar with her seven-year-old grand-daughter Sofia, and her daughter-in-law Nathalia, as the battle for Ukraine rages above her head.

    MOST parents will be familiar with the over the top lunchboxes more and more mums are sending their kids to school with, scrambling to make sure their little one’s is the best in class. However one mum has admitted that she has done away with fancy packed lunches and makes her son a ‘boring’ one instead. 1A mum has openly admitted that she deliberately makes her son a boring lunchCredit: Facebook Aussie mum-of-two, Sarah, was sick of people posting snaps of their carefully curated lunch boxes filled with nothing but healthy snacks, so she decided to share her own take.

    In the week leading up to the anniversary of the J6 insurrection, we were reminded of the greatest threat America’s wonky democracy faces. No, it isn’t Donald Trump, nor his army of Auschwitz-appreciators, recreational horse dewormer enthusiasts and QAnon clowns waiting for JFK Jr. to parachute into Dealey Plaza. It isn’t the remaining Koch brother, the one who apparently won his one-dollar bet with the other Koch. It isn’t even very vaccinated Rupert Murdoch and his malevolent Kendall Roy, who have turned their super-spreader “news” channel into Covid-19’s most infectious ally. What could be worse than these wannabe tyrants? READ: There are disturbing parallels between the 2020s and 1940s in the U.S. It’s the normalization of the GOP minority domination. This shrugging acceptance of the perversion of our elections helped to make true democracy an exception in America rather than the rule — especially at the federal level. And nowhere has the GOP’s success at withering away our democracy been more obvious than when we hear the huge yawn across the media after they’ve successfully...
    Several news stations in upstate New York have received letters from someone claiming to be the 'Chinese Zodiac Killer,' a possible homage to the 1960s California serial killer whose identity is still unknown.  The FBI field office in Albany has asked local media outlets to keep an eye out for any such letters and to not open them in order to preserve DNA evidence. News of the letters was first reported Thursday by the Albany Times Union, which did not receive one.  It is unclear what the letters say or which outlets got one. The real Zodiac Killer murdered at least five victims in the San Francisco Bay Area between December 1968 and October 1969. He was known to taunt media outlets with coded letters, threatening bombings and killings if they weren't published. Multiple TV stations in upstate New York have received letters from someone claiming to be the 'Chinese Zodiac Killer.'

    AS parents, we want the best for our children, and are usually happy for them to live with us until they get to a point where they're ready to move out. But one mother has taken to Mumsnet to complain that her 20-year-old son has extended his welcome at her home - mainly because he's so disgusting to live with. 2One mum has grown tired of her son's lazy waysCredit: Getty "He has always been lazy, he never bothered with school (he went, but only did what he needed to do), he doesn’t care about how he looks, spends all his money on s**te (thankfully not alcohol or drugs, but computer games, crisps, sweets, fizzy pop, biscuits etc) and generally just acts extremely immature," she wrote in a post titled "I want my 20 year old son to grow up and leave home." Despite the fact that he's studying at college to be a personal trainer, she said that he's not particularly dedicated to his studies, and "doesn't eat properly or train" so she and her husband "can't...
    The group later shared a video that reportedly featured Marquis' angry comments. "Hi, I'm a journalist with the New York Times. I’m just calling to wonder," a voice was heard saying. "I have two questions. How do you sleep at night? And aren’t you just a bit worried that there might be a hell? And when you meet God, He will send you there? That’s just my only question. The third question, the only people politicizing this seems to be you, because you’re the only people I got a f***ing press release from." The voicemail continued, "Again, I am from the New York Times, and I’m letting everyone in the New York Times know what kind of f***ing a**holes you are. Congrats on being a laughingstock.

    As far as holy grails in medicine are concerned, you don’t get one much more significant than a cure for dementia. It’s the condition many of us fear most, as the disease slowly but inexorably obliterates the mind. We’ve been waiting for a breakthrough treatment for decades, yet despite billions spent on drug development and research by governments and companies worldwide, the majority of candidates have fallen by the wayside. Some experimental medicines have even had the opposite of the intended effect, actually worsening brain function. And the only drugs currently available simply tackle specific symptoms of mild to moderate dementia — there is nothing that can slow down the disease or prevent it. So, understandably, there was huge excitement and hopeful headlines recently after the first new medicine for Alzheimer’s (the most common type of dementia) in two decades was approved by the U.S. regulator, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As far as holy grails in medicine are concerned, you don’t get one much more significant than a cure for dementia The drug, aducanumab (brand name, Aduhelm), works...
    (CNN Business)A version of this article first appeared in the "Reliable Sources" newsletter. You can sign up for free right here.Friday's satirical headline by The Onion said it best: "Nation Nearly Strings Together 3 Good Days In Row."The blessing of Thanksgiving on Thursday was followed by a curse on Friday: Urgent news about the new Covid variant named Omicron. The reality is that "we know almost nothing about the Omicron variant," as this headline on The Atlantic's website helpfully states. But the abrupt reactions to the news -- stock selloffs, travel restrictions, endless Twitter threads -- made Omicron the top story of the weekend across all sorts of news websites and networks.Now the world is in a sort of information holding pattern, as reflected by this banner on CNN Sunday afternoon: "QUESTIONS & CONCERNS BUT STILL SPARSE DATA ON NEW COVID VARIANT." Sociologist Zeynep Tufekci put it this way: "South Africa has gifted us an early warning with Omicron. But earlier the warning, the less we know."Author and podcaster Derek Thompson, one of the smartest voices out there about the...
    Despite having the highest vaccination rate in the country, Vermont has been dealing with a dramatic increase of COVID-19 cases. Infections have risen by 55 percent over the last two weeks to an average of about 300 per day, according to a recent report from the state's Department of Financial Regulation. Yet 80.9 percent of the state's total population has had at least one dose - second only to Massachusetts - and 71.8 percent are fully vaccinated, higher than anywhere else, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). So why is The Green Mountain State facing its worst Covid surge? Experts say there are a few reasons for this including low vaccination rates among younger people, college students gathering unmasked for Halloween parties, and not enough residents with natural immunity.  Vermont is the most vaccinated state in the nation with 80.9% of the population with one dose and 71.8% fully vaccinated but cases are surging (file image) A new report finds that Covid cases have risen 55% over the last two weeks to an average...
    A 12 year-old boy has shared his horror at being pounced on by a huge crocodile which sunk its fangs into his leg as he played hide and seek at a Mexican holiday resort.    Charlie Buhl, of Philadelphia, was hiding on a set of wooden steps leading to a lagoon at Club Med Cancun resort on June 18 with his friends when he was attacked by the 13 foot reptile. Resort workers rushed to the scene where they forcibly kicked the crocodile off of the young boy's leg and brought him to safety. Charlie was warned by doctors that his leg wounds - which became infected - were so severe that he faced losing the limb.   But he recovered with surgery, and is now even planning to dress as a giant crocodile for Halloween.   'There was nothing I could do, it was so strong,' Buhl said in a Wednesday interview with Good Morning America. 'I could feel like it almost pricking the inside of my leg,' he said. 'Like someone was digging their nails into your arm.' 'The workers helped...

    SO, Facebook knew two years ago that its app Instagram harms young girls’ body image. There is something sickening about the details of the 2019 internal research that was leaked this week. 4My daughter Sophia, after years of hating social media, makes her living out of InstagramCredit: Instagram The company was aware it can cause serious damage to mental health but has failed to do anything about it.  In fact, boss Mark Zuckerberg stood in front of Congress and said that Facebook was good for young people’s mental health. That’s despite 13 per cent of suicidal girls in Britain blaming the app for their desire to kill themselves. And he knew it, because before his comment he had actually seen the research.  It was done by his organisation and found 32 per cent of girls said Instagram made them feel worse about their bodies if they were already having insecurities.  Unrealistic standards It also makes body-image issues worse for one in three teen girls. And yet it continues to add beauty-editing filters to the app. Perhaps most upsetting about the...
    During Thursday’s White House briefing, Kelly O’Donnell of NBC News asked Jen Psaki why President Joe Biden “coughs so frequently.” “Many of us were in the East Room watching the president,” she said, presumably referencing a speech about the economy Biden gave that morning. “We’ve seen him on many occasions where he has a repeated cough. What is the situation with that cough, and is that a concern?” Psaki responded PSAKI: It’s not a concern. We have a doctor who travels with him obviously, who checks in if it is ever warranted, and certainly that continues to be the case as it has been since the beginning of his presidency. O’DONNELL: Is there an explanation for why he coughs so frequently in situations like that? I’m sure you saw it. PSAKI: I did. I don’t think it’s an issue of concern. I think there are a range of reasons why we may need to clear our throat, or we may have a little light cold. And that’s certainly something that presidents, elected officials, reporters, spokespeople can confront. But it’s not...

    TOKYO (AP) — When Mourad Aliev sat on the boxing ring apron at the Kokugikan Arena for an hour after his disqualification for head-butting, the French super heavyweight took a metaphorical seat alongside all the boxers who believe they’ve been grievously wronged by Olympic refereeing and judging. Over a century into boxing’s stormy Olympic history, that gathering of angry fighters could fill an arena. Ingemar Johansson. Jo Dong-gi. Byun Jung-il. Roy Jones Jr. Evander Holyfield. Floyd Mayweather Jr. Alexis Vastine. Michael Conlan. Vassiliy Levit. That’s just a fraction of the boxers who felt victimized by controversial refereeing or messy judging in the Olympic ring over the decades. For as long as boxing has been in the modern Games, fighters and fans have complained about it. Every attempt to improve the judging and officiating has been undone by another round of missteps. The sport now is essentially defined by images of outraged boxers protesting their perceived injustices, from Byun’s Seoul ring sit-in to Conlan’s middle fingers to the Rio judges. Losing fighters cry conspiracy and corruption at almost every defeat,...
    Longtime Hamptonites are complaining about the uptick in prices at the vacation hotspot and blame a new crowd of wealthy individuals for the rising costs. Locals claim the recent wave of rich residents is 'ruining the Hamptons,' citing an increase in the cost of housing, dining and transportation. 'There's so much money now it's nauseating. I'm a one-percenter. But I bear no resemblance to these people,' one woman, who bought her Amagansett home in 1991, told Vanity Fair. 'Everyone with money is here.

    Here we are, living 25 miles, five miles, even a scant hundred feet from that splendid dunk known as the Pacific Ocean, and what are we known for the world over? Swimming pools. By one calculation from five years ago, there are a quarter-million private swimming pools in Los Angeles County. From the window seat of a 737, they look like flickering blue opals embedded in a matrix of dusty greenery and concrete. Our stories wouldn’t be our stories without swimming pools as image and metaphor. In “The Graduate,” Benjamin Braddock bastes in his parents’ pool in Pasadena, worrying about his future. Joe Gillis, screenwriter and kept man, floats face down and eyes open in the pool of a mock hacienda in “Sunset Boulevard.” “The poor dope, he always wanted a pool,” Gillis narrates from beyond. “Well, in the end he got himself a pool. Only the price turned out to be a little high” — two bullets in the back, one in the belly. The crowded, chlorinated deep-end water in “Boogie Nights” memorializes porn, pools, and the 1970s San...
    More On: nba Ex-NBA stars have ‘buried the hatchet’ after infamous feud, backyard brawl Chris Paul puts on show in long-awaited NBA Finals moment Lakers interested in Spurs star after early playoff exit Kevin Durant fires back at Steve Kerr over Twitter usage There is a lot riding on Kevin Love in his return to the Olympics. The 32-year-old’s inclusion on the 12-man Team USA roster for the Tokyo Games raised eyebrows following his lackluster season in Cleveland, in which he averaged 12.2 points (the lowest since his rookie year), 7.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists. Following the roster reveal, Jalen Rose, a columnist and podcast host for The Post, said he didn’t believe Love deserved a spot on the coveted list.

He was a big star at the University of Florida, where he won a Heisman Trophy and was part of two national titles. He played a physical, exciting style. He wasn’t a great NFL QB, but he won a playoff game. Mostly though, he’s a nice guy, a charity-based guy, a do-something guy. Last week he and his foundation partnered with the state of Tennessee to fight human trafficking. Who could oppose that? He’s a motivational speaker, doing it in an uber-positive, you-can-do-it kind of way. And, of course, he’s very public about his faith, which is hardly unique among pro athletes, but is appealing to those who share...
    AS one of the biggest boy bands of all time, Westlife’s reunion in 2018 had been a long time coming. A hit album penned by pal Ed Sheeran proved the catalyst to finally get the Irish four-piece back together in the studio. 11The reunited Westlife boys have a brace of huge shows at London’s Wembley Stadium in August — the first gigs at the iconic venue for two years But a sell-out comeback arena tour and number one album — their ninth in an astonishing career at the top of the charts — was cut short by Covid, leaving the band’s future unclear. As Nicky Byrne quips: “Suddenly I was an unemployed pop star. It wasn’t quite as we’d planned it.” Now the boyband are back for a second time, with a major new album deal with record giant Warner Music. They also have a brace of huge shows at London’s Wembley Stadium in August — the first gigs at the iconic venue for two years — which promise to reignite live pop after the lockdown drought. 11The band, pictured...
    KATIE PRICE makes an unlikely nurse. Her inch-long fake nails prise open a packet of tablets from the mountain of medication her son Harvey must take every day. Bluntly, she tells viewers of her new BBC documentary: “Half are to keep him alive. Half are to control his behaviour.” 7Sam Carlisle says she is full of admiration for Katie PriceCredit: BBC When 28st Harvey kicks off about the pills, Katie gently coaxes him into swallowing them, like a young mum persuading a toddler to eat their greens. This is the heart of Harvey And Me, which follows the pair as Harvey turns 18 and airs on Monday night. It shows the relentlessness of caring for a young person with physical needs, learning disabilities and challenging behaviour. But it also captures the shatterproof bond between a mother and son who will always mentally be a child. Harvey chooses to celebrate his 18th birthday, with just his mother, in an empty railway station waiting for trains they won’t catch. “I love you, Harve,” says Katie. “I love you too, Mum,” says...
    London and Hong Kong (CNN)The recent attack on the US Capitol served as a sobering wake-up call: Not only have the Trump years left America deeply divided, they've also transformed it into a theater of political violence.President Donald Trump's impact on the world at large has been much the same. As he hands power to Joe Biden on Wednesday -- however reluctantly -- he also hands his successor a far more dangerous world than it was four years ago. At the start of 2020, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists behind the symbolic Doomsday Clock moved the time to 100 seconds to midnight, indicating that the world was closer to annihilation than it had been at any time since World War II.In their assessment, they considered the threat of nuclear confrontation, climate change and disruptive technologies. Of course, not every threat they point to is the result of a Trump policy. But those that are have been enormously consequential. A more nuclearized worldRead MoreOne of the most significant of these policies was Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal in 2018....
    Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin said Monday that efforts to rush President Donald Trump through a second impeachment would be “ill-advised.” Manchin told Fox News anchor Bret Baier that he thought Democrats would be better served to focus on helping President-elect Joe Biden through the transition rather than try to impeach Trump again in the last few days of his presidency. (RELATED: ‘I Went To The Shooting Range Yesterday’: Manchin Says People Shouldn’t Be ‘Scared To Death’ Of Democrats Taking Guns) WATCH: “I want to talk to you first about the impeachment effort,” Baier said, noting that by all accounts, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared to have the votes to pass articles of impeachment. “Is there any scenario where you see that the U.S. Senate would try and convict President Trump?” Manchin said he did not believe the Senate would have enough Republican support to convict even if the House did send articles of impeachment to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “They know the votes aren’t there,” Manchin continued. “I think this is so ill-advised for Joe Biden...

    There is so far no evidence of massive voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election as President Trump has claimed, Fox News' Chris Wallace said Friday. “You heard John Roberts just said there is a debate in the White House. Some people are saying give up gracefully, talk about the unity of the nation and concede the election. That doesn’t seem to be certainly based on what the president said around 6:30 eastern last night,” the host of "Fox News Sunday" told “America’s Newsroom.” Wallace said Trump has “every right to challenge the election count in a lot of these states.” “So far, you’re not seeing the kind of mass fraud of a scale that would be enough to overturn an election that would lead to victory,” Wallace said. Wallace said the difference between the 2000 Bush-Gore legal dispute over the Florida electoral process and the current situation is that it had a legitimate issue: the margin was 500 votes and there was a controversy over “butterfly ballots.” TRUMP'S VOTER-FRAUD REMARKS DRAW CRITICISM FROM SOME REPUBLICANS Trump faced some pushback from his own party Thursday after warning about...
    Georgia's Secretary of State on Friday said there would be a recount because the margin is so tight, even as votes continued to be counted.  There are still 5,500 votes outstanding in Georgia.  Of the 5million that have already been counted, Trump and Biden are neck-and-neck with 49.4% of the vote each.  Whatever happens now, it will be too close a race for there not to be an automatic recount,  Brad Raffensperger said at a press conference.  'As of 10am, there were a little under 5500 votes to be counted. There are 8.890 military ballots outstanding that will be counted if they are returned by the close of business today.  'Right now Georgia remains too close to call. We'll have a margin of a few thousand. The focus of our office for now remains on making sure that every legal vote is counted accurately.  'We can begin to look towards our next steps. With a margin that small, there will be a recount in Georgia,' he said. 
    Democrat Joyce Elliott is running a strong campaign to flip an Arkansas congressional seat We now have less than a week to go before Election Day, and with things continuing to look good for Democrats in most competitive races, we’re changing our rating in 11 contests―nine move toward the left, while the other two move in the direction of the GOP. You can find all our Senate, gubernatorial, and House ratings at each link. • AR-02 (Lean R to Tossup): We're as amazed as anyone that Arkansas' 2nd Congressional District around Little Rock, turf that does not share many of the hallmarks of suburban areas that have abandoned the GOP, is this competitive, but here we are. Democrats and Republicans alike have poured large sums into this contest, and polling has shown a battle that's now neck-and-neck between Democrat Joyce Elliott and Republican Rep. French Hill. Surveys have also found Joe Biden edging out Donald Trump, a significant turnaround from Trump's 52-42 win. • IL-06 (Likely D to Safe D): Republicans have shown little interest in targeting freshman Democratic Rep.

    Fatal police shooting sparks protest in Philly A New Website Tracks Broken McFlurry Machines, Because Weve All Been Heartbroken Before Is there a puppy heaven? Owners think so, headstones in pet cemeteries show Pet owners in the 19th century dearly loved their furry friends, but contemporary pet owners are more likely to believe in an afterlife where they'll see their deceased pets once more.  © Provided by Live Science Britain’s oldest pet cemetery at Hyde Park, established in 1881. Meaningful relationships between people and animals — unto death and beyond — have existed for thousands of years. Human graves dating to the Stone Age and the Paleolithic era hold dogs that may have been pets, and in 1881 the first public cemetery devoted entirely to pets was established in Hyde Park, London. Now found worldwide, pet cemeteries commemorate the emotional connection that people feel for cherished companion animals, and an archaeologist wondered if headstone inscriptions could reveal how humans' relationships with their pets have changed in more than a century. He discovered that gravestone inscriptions from the 20th century...
    One of North Dakota’s latest COVID-19 fatalities was buried on Wednesday afternoon but remains on the ballot for the state legislature in the November elections. Known in his motor racing days as “Dakota Dave,” 55-year-old David Andahl is on the ballot as a Republican candidate in the box marked “State Representative District 08.” His name is two inches to the right of the name Donald J. Trump in the adjacent box marked “President and Vice President of the United States.” In a campaign TV ad, Andahl described himself as a Trump supporter. He was not dissuaded when it became known that Trump had been aware back in February that COVID-19 is deadly and yet continued to compare it to the flu, dismissing it as just another Democratic hoax.Michael DalySpecial [email protected]@thedailybeast.comGot a tip?

    REUTERS/Brian Snyder Simone Biles has a wide array of tricks in her arsenal that none of her opponents can perform. But the 23-year-old's latest stunt is so unprecedented that there isn't currently a way to score it in official competition. Biles posted a video of herself attempting a triple back pike — and pulling off all three rotations — into a foam pit in honor of National Gymnastics Day on Saturday. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Simone Biles has long been pulling off tricks that her opponents wouldn't dare to try in competition, but her latest undertaking may be her most ambitious yet. The 23-year-old phenom appears to be working on a triple back pike — or, in layman's terms, a triple backflip with legs fully extended. On Saturday, Biles posted a video to Twitter in honor of National Gymnastics Day in which she pulls off the stunt with three complete rotations. And though she landed in a foam fit, many people in the comments section were quick to note that Biles appeared to have enough...
    (CNN)With the naming of Tropical Storm Vicky on Monday morning, this leaves only one name on the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season list -- Wilfred. So what will the next storm be named, after Wilfred?For what is likely to be only the second time in recorded history, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) will have to use the Greek alphabet for additional storm names. In 2005, the NHC had to use six letters off the Greek alphabet to account for the record number of storms. Four of those systems reached tropical storm strength (Alpha, Gamma, Delta, and Zeta), while the two other storms reached hurricane strength (Beta and Epsilon). The NHC does not use the letters Q, U, X, Y, and Z because there aren't enough names to fill those letters. But will there be more storms?The 2005 season went into the Greek alphabet. What makes forecasters think 2020 will follow suit?Read MoreAtlantic hurricane season officially runs from June 1 through November 30. Statistically speaking, September 10 is the peak of the season.

    Travel shaming — another trend of 2020 Beloved grocery stores that are gone forever ANA Inspiration forges on without fans, but there is still so much at stake Sometimes when Brittany Lincicome makes her way down the Walk of Champions at the ANA Inspiration, she’ll glance down at the plaques below. Her name is listed twice there (2009, 2015). Sometimes she’ll look over at the 18th green and strategize her next shot. Sometimes she’ll look up and high-five the fans who are leaning over the railing.  © Provided by Golfweek The walk will be eerily quiet this year with no spectators on property. Lincicome joked that she might high-five the air on her walk by Poppie’s Pond.  “With fans there’s so much more adrenaline,” said Lincicome, “and you just feed off of their energy and smiles and support.” The LPGA will have staged five tournaments, including a major, without fans before the tour gets to the Coachella Valley.

    The Super Bowl-winning coach of the Seattle Seahawks has delivered an impassioned call for an end to racism in the United States, urging his fellow coaches and players to speak out, and use their platform for good. Pete Carroll, 68, told a press conference on Saturday that a change in attitudes was long overdue and denouncing 'a system of slavery' which has 'never gone away.'   He said the team had decided earlier that morning to cancel practise, and to all register to vote instead.  'Let's step up,' he said.
