    HAKIM ZIYECH is reportedly ready to accept a wage cut in order to seal a move to AC Milan. The 29-year-old is keen to leave Chelsea before the end of the transfer window. 1Hakim Ziyech is reportedly open to taking a wage cut to leave ChelseaCredit: Getty AC Milan have been linked throughout the summer but a £30million investment on midfielder Charles De Ketelaere saw their transfer funds take a hit. Although Ziyech's willingness to cut his wages means the Serie A champions will now make the Blues an offer, according to Calciomercato. The Moroccan winger earns a reported £100,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge - but is happy to take home less in order to secure a move. And now the San Siro side want to loan Ziyech for the season, with the option to sign him permanently.

    Byron Jones hasn’t participated in a football practice in months because of a left ankle procedure he underwent in March, but the Miami Dolphins don’t seem concerned that the starting cornerback will miss the start of the regular season. At least not at this point. “There is concern with him continuing to progress…. It takes a full commitment each and every day for that to hold true,” Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel said when asked if Jones would be ready for the Sept. 11 regular season home opener against the New England Patriots. “Right now we are confident in how he is rehabbing. If there is a setback we will be concerned, but until then we feel pretty good about it.” Jones, who began camp on the physically unable to perform list, participated in on-the-field work during the offseason program. But he hasn’t been spotted on the field since training camp began last week for reasons that are unclear at this time. It is possible that Jones, who has started 103 NFL games during his career, and contributed 58 tackles, one...

    MILLIONS of households will receive direct payments of up to $1,500 this summer - and most are landing in the coming weeks. Though technically not stimulus checks, plenty of states are distributing extra cash to Americans this summer. 1Colorado Governor Jared Polis looks forward to the people of his state receiving some necessary cashCredit: Getty Images - Getty In Colorado, residents can expect tax rebates of $750 per person in the mail, provided they've filed their 2021 taxes. The Colorado rebate checks will be funded by taxes collected by the state that went over the cap set by the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, also known as TABOR. The law means the state can't spend more taxpayer money than it generates, so the surplus goes back to residents. During a Wednesday press conference, Colorado governor Jared Polis estimated the “vast majority” of Coloradans will get a check by the end of next week or the week after, reports The Denver Post.

    Q: Thanks for the opportunity to discuss electric vehicles. John Mitchell, Castro Valley A: Recent columns on electric vehicles prompted dozens of responses from readers who like electric vehicles, and others who are concerned about them. Q: I’ve had 2 electric cars. I was the first person in San Francisco to get a Honda Fit EV. With an 80-mile range, it was basically a city car, fine to go to Oakland and back to Santa Clara with a charge by plugging into a 110-volt outlet for an hour. I had it for 4.5 years. I have had a Tesla model S for 5.5 years. I bought one with a 245-mile range, but you can get them with nearly a 400 mile-range now. I’ve gone round trip both to Los Angeles and Tahoe and charged while I got something to eat. By the time I was done eating, the car was ready to go. With the Tesla, if you enter your destination in the navigation system, it tells you where to stop to charge and for how long. I’ve never been concerned...
    THE View fans have been begging for host Joy Behar to replace Whoopi Goldberg as moderator after watching her fill in for the role on Friday. The Sister Act actress has often taken off on Fridays, giving Joy the chance to take over and prove to viewers that she can handle the job herself. 4Credit: ABC 4Credit: ABC As Joy was absent all last week – and the show was off the two Fridays before – she hadn’t had a chance to take on the position in a little while. Whoopi was out on July 22, though, allowing Joy to once again lead the hosting panel.

    PHILADELPHIA (CNN) — The nationwide baby formula shortage that federal leaders once said would be fixed within weeks has dragged on for months, despite tons of imports and key steps forward in domestic production. Formula stock rates have been dropping since the end of February, when the US Food and Drug Administration shut down a major formula plant and issued a recall of products manufactured there after an inspection found dangerous bacteria in several areas.

    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina’s Democratic attorney general declined Thursday to meet Republican legislative leaders’ demand that he ask a federal court to lift an injunction on a state law banning nearly all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. “The Department of Justice will not take action that would restrict women’s ability to make their own reproductive health care decisions,” Attorney General Josh Stein said. “Protecting that ability is more important than ever, as states across the nation are banning abortions in all instances, including rape and incest.” Senate leader Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore, on the day of the Supreme Court ruling that overturned nationwide abortion protections, asked Stein to “take all necessary legal action” to reinstate the 20-week ban, warning his inaction would lead them to take legal action of their own. A 2019 federal court ruling, affirmed last year by the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, barred the execution of the 20-week ban based on precedents set in Roe v. Wade and an associated 1992 ruling, both struck down June 24. The ruling...
    (CNN)Georgia's law banning abortions at about six weeks of pregnancy will be allowed to go into effect later this summer, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday. A federal district court in 2020 had blocked state officials from enforcing the law, which will ban abortion when early cardiac activity is detected. The challenge to the law, which was signed in 2019 by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, brought by Georgia abortion providers, abortion rights advocacy groups and practitioners.The 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday vacated the lower court's order, saying in its opinion that the US Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson last month "makes clear that no right to abortion exists under the Constitution, so Georgia may prohibit them."HB 481 redefines "natural person" to mean "any human being including an unborn child." It also defines "unborn child" as a "member of the species of Homo sapiens at any stage of development who is carried in the womb."The appeals court said that the law's redefinition of a "natural person" is "not vague on its face."Read MoreThe decision does not...
    Formula One bosses are sweating over Bernie Ecclestone's plans to attend the Austrian Grand Prix next weekend. The sport's former ringmaster told The Mail on Sunday last weekend that he intends to end his Covid-prompted absence from races, starting at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.

    International flights carrying much-needed baby formula have touched down in the United States, but stock rates have yet to improve as supply chain woes continue hurting citizens, according to a report. Although White House officials committed to bring in enough formula for approximately 40 million 8 ounce bottles, the stock rates for formula kept sinking, per data from Information Resources Incorporated (IRI), CNN reported Tuesday. The outlet continued: More than 21% of formula products — powder, ready-to-drink and liquid — were out of stock during the week ending June 19, compared with a typical rate of 10% before a nationwide infant formula recall by Abbott Nutrition happened in February. Stock rates for powder formula, specifically, are even worse. More than 27% of powder formula products were out of stock during the week ending June 19, up from 25% the prior week and 23% the week before that, IRI data shows. Earlier this month, President Joe Biden admitted he was unaware of the baby formula shortage until several months after a closed manufacturer led to the problem, Breitbart News reported June...

    Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin said he would push for a 15-week abortion ban in the state following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a report said.  Speaking with The Washington Post, Youngkin said he reached out to multiple state Republican leaders to craft the legislation. He told the newspaper that it would be easier to pass a 20-week ban, but he would prefer a ban on abortions 15 weeks after conception. Though he does support exceptions in the case of rape, incest, or when the mother's life is at risk.   “Virginians do want fewer abortions as opposed to more abortions,” Youngkin told The Washington Post moments after the court handed down its ruling overturning federal abortion protections. “I am not someone who is going to jump in and try to push us apart … There is a place we can come together.” Florida and Mississippi have similar laws, the Post said.  On Twitter, Youngkin wrote that he is a "proud pro-life governor and plans to take every action" to protect life. He said he hopes to see...
    CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — Rory McIlroy shot an 8-under 62 Thursday to take an early one-stroke lead on the opening day of the Travelers Championship. The No. 2-ranked player in the world, fighting off a sinus bug, started on the back nine at TPC River Highlands and shot a bogey-free round. That included a 47-foot birdie putt on the par-4 seventh that helped him move past Xander Schauffele and Martin Laird, who each shot 63. “It’s like U.S. Open rehab coming here,” said McIlroy, who won the Canadian Open this month and tied for fifth last week at The Country Club in Brookline. “I like coming here the week after the U.S. Open, it sort of gives you an opportunity to shoot low scores and get after it.” Schauffele hit all 18 greens in regulation for the first time in his career, despite showing up late at the practice range because he thought his 7:35 a.m. tee time was at 7:50. “That was a pretty big rookie move on my behalf,” the Olympic gold medalist said. “But when I’m at...
    Senate leadership on Wednesday touted a compromise between Republican and Democratic negotiators on legislation to combat gun violence, painting the bill as a commonsense step amid criticism from their far-left or far-right flanks. SIX KEY HOUSE JAN. 6 COMMITTEE MOMENTS ABOUT TRUMP PRESSURE ON ELECTIONS OFFICIALS A bipartisan group of Senate negotiators including Sens. Chris Murphy (D-CT) and John Cornyn (R-TX) released the text of their bill Tuesday, which would grant funding for states to implement red flag laws or other crisis prevention measures, enhance some background checks, and close the so-called boyfriend loophole: a gap in federal law barring spouses, but not dating partners, convicted of domestic abuse from gun ownership. The bill would also provide funding for some mental health resources and school safety measures. The negotiations followed a string of recent mass shootings, including one at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school. In remarks Wednesday on the Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he intends for the upper chamber to pass the bill by the end of the week. “I am...

    New York (CNN Business)Elon Musk is set to field questions directly from Twitter employees later this week for the first time since he agreed to buy the social media company.Musk will take pre-submitted employee questions at a virtual all-hands meeting on Thursday, a Twitter (TWTR) spokesperson confirmed to CNN Business. News of the meeting was first reported by Insider. The day after Twitter and Musk announced the acquisition agreement in April, Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and Board Chair Bret Taylor held an all-hands meeting. They were peppered with questions about everything from what the deal would mean for their compensation to what Musk's takeover could mean for the company's commitment to ethical artificial intelligence.

    Getty Marcus Jones The New England Patriots were high on rookie cornerback Marcus Jones. The electric Jones is a little undersized at 5-foot-8, but he seemingly makes up for any height deficiencies with tenacity, effort, and blazing speed. In a recent mailbag on Patriots.com, a reader asked Mike Dussault for his take on Jones and another Patriots rookie corner Jack Jones. Dussault isn’t sure Marcus Jones will be able to step in and play a role for New England on defense. However, at the very least, Dussault sees Jones making an immediate impact as a kick returner. Jones was arguably the best return man in college football in 2021. NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein compared him to Kansas City Chiefs special teams great Dante Hall. Jones’ ability as a return man seems to be the only aspect of his game that scouts are unanimously thrilled about, and thus the role in New England is likely his to lose. In college, Jones had a total of 9 return TDs between his time at Troy and Houston. If he can bring the...

    Johnny Depp is set to take the stand today in a blockbuster climax to his $50 million defamation suit with ex-wife Amber Heard that has already seen more than its fair share of explosive revelations.  Entering its marathon seventh and final week week, the Pirates of the Caribbean star - who last took the stand two weeks ago - is expected to be called again to undergo cross-examination as a rebuttal witness by Heard's team of lawyers.  There are conflicting reports of which day the 58-year-old actor will take the stand, with some claiming it will be as soon as today.  Heard herself took to the stand last week to be cross-examined by Depp's firebrand lawyer Camille Vasquez, who stole the show with her tough questioning of Heard, 36, and tender treatment towards Depp.  Judge Penney Azcarate, presiding over the dramatic Fairfax County case in Virginia, gave each side a total of 61 hours and 15 minutes to present their cases.  As of Monday morning, Heard's legal team had 8 hours and 14 minutes left, and Depp's lawyers had 18 hours...
    Secret government charter flights paid for by taxpayer funds are quietly transporting migrants from the southern border to other cities across the U.S. The flights, which take off from border cities like El Paso, Texas, are taking busloads of illegal aliens to various cities around the country including Jacksonville, Florida, Alexandria, Louisiana and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Lawmakers are demanding more transparency about the flights - which do not appear on tracking websites - and where the migrants are going, with some leaders alleging they were not informed about the relocation plans. 'Health and Human Services has misled me or lied to me several times. I have asked, they actually told me any flights coming into Pennsylvania we will notify you and the local schools,' Congressman Dan Meuser (R-Pa.) told NewsNation. 'They didn’t. They haven’t notified us once.' Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) criticized President Joe Biden's 'secretive operations,' claiming the federal government has been bringing migrants into Jacksonville without alerting the state. The call for transparency comes as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention plans next week to end restrictions, known as...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Friday that the House will soon take up legislation and hold a hearing to address the nation’s baby formula shortage. Supply chain disruptions in conjunction with Abbott Nutrition, one of the nation’s largest producers of infant formula, recalling three types of its product following multiple babies contracting bacterial infections have led to roughly 40% of supplies being out of stock by the end of April. In a "Dear Colleague" letter sent to members on Friday, the California Democrat noted that around half of infant formula is purchased using benefits through the WIC program, which provides low-income women with food and formula, and announced plans to bring legislation to the floor aimed at providing “emergency authority” to address the supply chain problem by loosening regulations on the product. “Thanks to the leadership of Education and Labor Committee Chairman Bobby Scott, next week the House will bring up on suspension a bill to grant emergency authority to the WIC program to address supply chain disruptions and recalls. Doing so will empower the federal government...

    Chris “Mad Dog” Russo — the legendary New York sports talk radio host — needs to change his archaic, old-school rhetoric about the conduct of those who participate in sporting events. Russo, who graduated from Rollins College and got his start in sports radio right here in Orlando, has rightfully been barbecued on social media over the last few days after chastising outspoken athletes with his tired, old take, “Shut up and play!” I’ve got a better idea, Mad Dog. How about castigating obnoxious sports fans and telling them to, “Shut up and watch!” Is it just me or is fan behavior at all levels of sports — from Little League to Major League — becoming more nasty and hateful than it’s ever been? Of course, we aren’t talking about the majority of fans who mostly go to sporting events to cheer their team and have a good time; we’re talking about entitled fans who show up and think the price of a ticket gives them the right to say or do whatever they want. Like the New York Yankees...
    (CBS4) – It’s Nursing Week, a time to celebrate the unsung heroes who work to protect our community every day. The past two years have exemplified their resilience and their dedication. (credit: CBS) “We get into this because we have a passion to care for people,” explained Briana Simpkins, a Registered Nurse at Denver Health. Briana and her mother, both work as nurses at Denver Health. It’s a nursing position where Briana says it’s easy to make an impact on others, every day. “Whether its holding someone’s hand, or getting ahold of a long-lost family member, or getting them a new pair of shoes to wear out of the hospital room,” Briana explained. “Every day is a chance to help somebody.

    The Senate is slated to take up legislation next week aimed at codifying the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade abortion decision, after a leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion indicated justices are prepared to overturn the nearly half-century precedent, a senior Democratic source confirmed to the Washington Examiner. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has vowed to do everything in his power to prevent limitations to abortion following the bombshell Politico report, repeatedly taking aim at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for his role in confirming conservative judges to the high court while Republicans held the majority. “Such a decision, if it comes to pass, would be an utter abomination. Women across America would suffer irreparable harm to their rights, their health, and their dignity," Schumer said on the Senate floor Wednesday. "It is vital that we act quickly because this is no longer an abstract exercise.” SCHUMER SAYS SENATE WILL VOTE ON BILL TO CODIFY ABORTION RIGHTS While top Democrats have slammed the likely Supreme Court outcome, leaders face an uphill battle in...
    The state GOP's proposed new platform would remove protections for pregnant people whose lives are at risk. As people wait to see how the Supreme Court will rule on Mississippi's 15-week abortion ban, conservative legislatures are wasting no time proposing or passing abortion restrictions. One of the newest — and worst — of these abortion bans has been proposed in Utah. There, the state GOP is considering altering a plank in their party platform to eliminate any exceptions to abortion bans, including an exception to save the pregnant person's life.  The current plank of the Utah GOP platform reads, "We strongly oppose abortion, except to preserve the life of the mother or in cases of rape or incest." The proposed change would change the language to "We strongly oppose abortion and encourage adoption." As Rewire News noted, the language Republicans are using about this proposed change is quite appalling. One of the proposal's backers explained that "We don't need to talk about rape or incest. That almost sounded like a permission slip to go get an abortion if this happens."...
    On this week’s episode of The Brief, hosts Markos Moulitsas and Kerry Eleveld chatted about what to expect in the midterm elections later this year and what’s missing from mainstream coverage of this cycle. They also spoke with guest Angelo Carusone, president and CEO of Media Matters for America, who joined the show to discuss Republicans’ messaging strategy heading into the midterms, the danger presented by Fox News, and how people can take real, meaningful action to disarm the misinformation-spreading media conglomerate. Media Matters is a nonprofit organization and media watchdog group that keeps a close eye on false information spreading in the media—particularly right-wing media outlets—and Carusone offered a deeper dive into what we can expect this fall from Republicans in light of what is being discussed on Fox News. As both parties count down the weeks and strategize ahead of November, Moulitsas is predicting: What Donald Trump has done is, he’s made it 2020 all over again. It’s a campaign that is going to be, in large part, a rehashing of the 2020 election, and that sort of mixes things up. Does it mean that we’re going to...
    BOSTON (CBS) – The National Nuclear Security Administration will inspect the Boston Marathon route with a low-flying helicopter equipped with radiation-sensing technology this week. The NNSA said the inspections will take place Thursday through Marathon Monday. The organization wants people to be aware they are not alarmed when they see the aircraft flying at low elevation. During the inspections, the helicopter will fly in a grid pattern at heights of 150 feet or above. The helicopter will fly at about 80 MPH. According to the NNSA, the flyovers will only take place during daylight hours and will take about two hours to complete. The inspection is described as a “normal part of security and emergency preparedness activities.” You can watch live coverage of the 126th Boston Marathon on WBZ-TV and CBS Boston.com on Monday, April 18, 2022.

    There are increasing signs that the Omicron subvariant BA.2 is on the rise, even as the daily reported number of coronavirus cases continues to fall across California. The jury is still out as to whether BA.2 — which is 30% to 60% more contagious than the original Omicron variant that raced through California over the winter — may spark another spike. But given how the latest strain has upended trendlines in other parts of the globe, many public health officials are urging caution.

Asked by host Jonathan Capehart on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” about an update on the negotiations, Hoyer said the lower chamber will likely pass a continuing resolution (CR) to give negotiations “a little more time” to write the funding bill. “We're gonna get something done, it'll probably be a short-term CR and it will be this coming week to give us a little more time. Negotiations are very vigorous and I think that we're going to get agreement both on the top line, how much spending is going to be in, and how it will be spent,” Hoyer said. “But it's...

    VIENNA (AP) — (photos expected soon) A law requiring most adults in Austria to get vaccinated against COVID-19 is ready to take effect, but the sense of urgency that accompanied its announcement in November has largely evaporated. Few other countries look likely to go as far as attention turns to loosening restrictions. The Austrian mandate for residents 18 and over to get vaccinated — the first of its kind in Europe — cleared its last legislative hurdle Thursday when parliament’s upper house approved what Health Minister Wolfgang Mueckstein called “a forward-looking and active step.” It’s expected to become law in the coming days but it will be a while before Austrians notice any practical change. And it isn’t clear when or even whether the toughest part of the plan, which was watered down from the initial proposal, will take effect. Only in mid-March will police start checking people’s vaccination status during traffic stops and checks on coronavirus restrictions. People who can’t produce proof of vaccination will be asked in writing to do so, and will be fined up...
    By Gabe Cohen, CNN (CNN) — The new government website where people can order free Covid-19 at-home rapid antigen tests is up and running. With just names and addresses, families can go to COVIDtests.gov and request up to four free tests to be delivered to their homes. The website comes online as the Biden administration faces growing pressure to fix the coronavirus testing shortage amid the Omicron surge. The White House says it already has tens of millions of tests ready to go. It is spending $4 billion to deliver the first 500 million tests to homes across the US. The program passes the testing pressure to the US Postal Service, which says it’s prepared to deliver. “We have been working closely with the Administration and are well prepared to accept and deliver test kits on the first day the program launches,” Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said in a statement. But right now, the Postal Service is facing problems, with communities in several states dealing with mail delays because of Omicron. As of Tuesday, more than 19,200 postal workers...

And to see the bigger picture, he’s used the player he has called his hero growing up, Tiger Woods, as a benchmark.

To that end, McIlroy thinks he needs to be "more of a measured and a controlled golfer." So, heading into his opening event of 2022 at the Abu Dhabi Championship starting Thursday, expect...
