    Kelsey Plum views her improved play this season to just having more time on the court. The Las Vegas guard is averaging a career-high 20.7 points and 5.7 assists this year to help the Aces to the best record in the league. She’s playing a career-best 34.7 minutes a game — nine more than last year when she won the league’s Sixth Woman of the Year award. “I think if you look at the numbers, points per minute and assists per minute they are pretty close” to last season, Plum said. “Really it’s about opportunity. Coach has me in a little bit of a different role.” Aces coach Becky Hammon has worked hard to have Plum understand she can be a really good facilitator as well as scorer. “Her most growth has come with just her willingness to pass and play with her teammates,” Hammon said. “That makes her unguardable since she does so many other things. She understands the pass can be a valuable tool to her offensive game.” Coaches, players and fans around the league are taking notice...
    In this article HRMYRepresentation of Ethereum cryptocurrency is seen in this illustration photo taken in Sulkowice, Poland on August 12, 2021.Jakub Porzycki/NurPhoto | Getty ImagesHackers have stolen $100 million in cryptocurrency from Horizon, a so-called blockchain bridge, in the latest major heist in the world of decentralized finance. Details of the attack are still slim, but Harmony, the developers behind Horizon, said they identified the theft Wednesday morning. Harmony singled out an individual account it believes to be the culprit. "We have begun working with national authorities and forensic specialists to identify the culprit and retrieve the stolen funds," the start-up said in a tweet late Wednesday. In a follow-up tweet, Harmony said it's working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and multiple cybersecurity firms to investigate the attack. Blockchain bridges play a big role in the DeFi — or decentralized finance — space, offering users a way of transferring their assets from one blockchain to another. In Horizon's case, users can send tokens from the Ethereum network to Binance Smart Chain. Harmony said the attack did not affect a...
    President Joe Biden has been under fire for inflation that has reached its highest point in 41 years and has squeezed the finances of millions of Americans. He has blamed Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine and the COVID pandemic for the surge in prices - and now has pointed to inflation being a global issue. In an interview with the Associated Press that was conducted Thursday, he slapped back suggestions he is to blame. 'Isn't it kind of interesting? If it's my fault, why is it the case in every other major industrial country in the world that inflation is higher? You ask yourself that? I'm not trying to be a wise guy,' he told AP reporter Josh Boak in the Oval Office. While prices having been rising across the globe, the inflation in the U.S. has been higher than the G7 nations and China for most of the year. The United Kingdom with a four-decade high of 8.6 percent has only just surpassed inflation in the United States. But nations including Germany, France, Japan and Canada are all still...
    The Supreme Court ruled Monday that migrants are not entitled to bond hearings even after they have been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for six months.  In a 8-1 decision, the high court reversed a lower court ruling that held the immigrant at the center of the case, Antonio Arteaga-Martinez, was entitled to a bond hearing because he had been detained for more than 6 months.  With Justice Stephen Breyer as the lone dissenter, the court ruled that bond hearings are not required to prove that a detainee 'poses a flight risk or a danger to the community.'  The justices ruled that immigration law requires holding citizens who had been deported previously and were found illegally in the U.S. again.  Monday's ruling is the third in recent years to reject bond hearings for illegal immigrants.  The immigrant decision came as all eyes were on the court awaiting a ruling that could overturn Roe v. Wade and another in a New York gun case. The court will release more decisions on Wednesday.  A Supreme Court leak last month prompted national uproar...
    Vladimir Putin has suffered another grievous blow after he lost his 42nd colonel in his bloody war in Ukraine. Colonel Denis Kozlov, 40, was the second commander of the 12th Separate Guards Engineers of Keningsbersko-Gorodokskaya Red Banner Brigade to die in the conflict. Kozlov had replaced Colonel Sergei Porokhnya, 45, who was killed in Ukraine on 14 March. But the officer was among Russian troops to perish on May 11 in a failed advance across the Donets River at Bilohorivka, west of the city of Lysychansk, in the Donbas region, after Ukrainian troops successfully ambushed them.

While the beauty mogul looked stunning in the shoot, her critics couldn't help but notice that her legs appeared to be heavily airbrushed.

    Mystery is growing over the fate of Vladimir Putin's Black Fleet chief, Admiral Igor Osipov, who has 'not been seen alive' since the sinking of the Moskva warship one month ago. There are now suspicions that the commander was on board the vessel when it was hit by Ukrainian Neptune missiles, say Kyiv sources. Initially Ukraine claimed that the admiral was detained amid fury from Putin over the cruiser's sinking. Mystery is growing over the fate of Vladimir Putin's Black Fleet chief, Admiral Igor Osipov (picture date unknown) Other claims were that he had been suspended. This was never confirmed by Russian officials who this week insisted he was at his 'combat post' but 'not in the mood' to face the public. Osipov, 49, was conspicuously absent from the Red Square Victory Day parade on Monday, which he would routinely be expected to attend. He was also nowhere to be seen at events linked to Black Sea Fleet Day this week. At one event on 7 May, he was reported as being present only for his name to be removed...
    US spies have been helping Ukraine's military with intelligence about the movements of its Kremlin invaders, and at least eight generals have been killed. Officials reaveled to NBC News on Tuesday that American intelligence played a crucial role in the country's successful campaigns so far, and have helped the Ukranian government by repeatedly flagging the time and location of Putin's planned strikes.    'From the get-go, we leaned pretty heavily forward in sharing both strategic and actionable intelligence with Ukraine,' an unnamed US official who agreed to speak to the outlet under the condition of anonymity said. 'It's been impactful both at a tactical and strategic level. There are examples where you could tell a pretty clear story that this made a major difference.' A former senior intelligence official also told NBC News of the de facto alliance: 'There has been a lot of real-time intelligence shared in terms of things that could be used for specific targeting of Russian forces.' The ex-official revealed that much of the funneled information consists of commercial satellite images, 'but also a lot of other intelligence about,...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki brought down the house at a live taping when she revealed the “weirdest” question she’s ever been asked at a briefing. Ms. Psaki was a guest Thursday night on a live episode of Pod Save America, during which host Jon Lovett and comedian Mike Birbiglia bantered with the press secretary to introduce a game show bit. Birbiglia joked that Psaki’s job prepares her well for a standup comedy career dealing with hecklers, and Lovett used that cue to ask a question whose answer  stunned Birbiglia and brought down the house: MR. LOVETT: So, Jen. Speaking of hecklers, what would you say is the weirdest question you’ve gotten in your time in the briefing room? MS. PSAKI: There are many.

    Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis is no ally of the LGBTQ+ community. DeSantis recently signed the hateful, discriminatory “Don't Say Gay” bill into law (while surrounded by young children, but I digress) effective July 1. DeSantis, and the Republicans who bolstered the bill up to his desk, have continued to allege it’s not about being anti-queer, but about being appropriate with minors. Now, we know children are exposed to cisgender, heterosexual norms essentially from birth, and this includes norms in the classroom—whether it’s concerning history lessons, pronouns, or even teachers talking about their families. It’s only when a teacher references their same-sex partner, for example, or the role of LGBTQ+ activists in a historical movement comes up, that conservatives get outraged. DeSantis has referenced January Littlejohn, a resident of Leon County, Florida, to defend why he needed to sign hate into law. DeSantis has claimed that Littlejohn was not appropriately consulted about a public school’s approach to gender-affirming care for her child, including their name and pronouns. According to CNN, however, emails from public records suggest DeSantis’ presentation of the situation is...

    Bob Saget’s autopsy report has appeared to raise more questions that offer answers about the cause of the 65-year-old comedian and actor’s sudden death on January 9. Saget’s family revealed last week that he died of a brain bleed after hitting his head and going to sleep unaware of the severity of his injuries. Though an autopsy report released Thursday painted a grimmer picture about such injuries, noting that he fractured his skull in multiple places and sustained bleeding across both sides of his brain. Health experts are now asking how thoroughly his death was investigated and what caused have caused Saget such a “significant blow to the head,” which one doctor said appeared consistent with taking a baseball bat to the skull or falling 20 to 30 feet. Health experts are demanding answers about the cause of Bob Saget's death after an autopsy report found his injuries more significant than initially believed Saget's injuries stretched from the back to the front of his skull, with additional fractures above his eye sockets.

    NBC has publicly addressed its low-rated broadcast of the Genocide Games, with a senior network executive describing the situation as “difficult” while blaming the pandemic for the low level of enthusiasm. In a conference call with reporters Thursday,  NBC Sports chairman Pete Bevacqua laid out a grim assessment of the past week. “For us, it’s been difficult. There’s no way around this,” he said, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter. “The fact that we’ve been able to bring these Games to life during a pandemic with only a six-month window between the two [Olympics], the ratings are — of course we always want to have the ratings better — but the ratings for these Games, as I said, are about where we thought they’d be.” Olympic athletes Mikaela Shiffrin, Chloe Kim, and Nathan Chen, posing ahead of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. He blamed COVID restrictions for the lack of “passion and excitement” that typically surrounds the Olympics. “It’s no secret that athletes in masks, venues without spectators, so much of the passion and excitement, those great...

    The New York Times (NYT) issued a correction Thursday after overstating the number of kids who have been hospitalized in the U.S. with the coronavirus. The article, originally published Wednesday, discussed COVID-19 cases among children. “Nearly 900,000 children have been hospitalized with Covid-19 since the pandemic began, and about 520 have died,” NYT reporter Apoorva Mandavilli initially wrote. An updated correction said the original publication “misstated the number of Covid hospitalizations in U.S. children.

    Although he was infected with COVID-19 during the 2020/2021 winter and recovered from it, Florida State Sen. Manny Diaz remains unvaccinated. Diaz, an ally of Gov. Ron DeSantis, is also the top Republican shaping health care policy in the Florida Senate, and he discussed Florida's COVID-19 policies during an interview with Florida Politics. Florida Politics reporter Christine Jordan Sexton explains, "The senator, who acknowledges he hasn't gotten a COVID-19 vaccine, says he's firmly against vaccine mandates. At the urging of the governor, the (Florida State) Legislature earlier this year passed a bill that would prevent private businesses from requiring proof of vaccination from their customers. But the bill did not ban employers from requiring their employees to be vaccinated." Sexton, however, notes that unlike some other Florida Republicans, the 48-year-old Diaz "does not endorse blocking private employers from requiring vaccines." Florida currently has vaccine mandates in public schools for illnesses other than COVID-19. Sexton notes, "Republicans opposed to so-called 'vaccine passports' have faced criticism, particularly as it relates to schools where current law already requires a bevy of vaccinations. Under...
    The BBC noted that the Taliban has issued "conflicting statements" in regard to Baradar's whereabouts. Some have maintained he is away on business, while others said the leader was "tired and wanted some rest." Baradar's supposed rival, Khalil ur-Rahman Haqqani, is known for carrying out violent attacks against Western allies in Afghanistan. He is the leader of the Haqqani network, a group designated by the U.S. as a terrorist organization. Haqqani currently has a $5 million bounty on his head for links to al Qaeda operations. His nephew, Sirajuddin Haqqani, has been appointed interior minister in the new Taliban regime in Afghanistan. He is on the FBI's "Most Wanted" list and has a $10 million bounty on his head.
    The Los Angeles County Department of Health Services said no patients admitted to their four hospitals and 19 healthcare centers for COVID-19 have been fully vaccinated against the disease.  "To date, we have not had a patient admitted to a [Department of Health Services] hospital who has been fully vaccinated, with either the J&J, Pfizer or Moderna vaccine," county health services director Christina Ghaly told the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, CNN reports. She added, "Every single patient that we've admitted for Covid is not yet fully vaccinated." Ghaly's comments come as Los Angeles County is experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases as the highly contagious delta variant spreads. There are around 400 people hospitalized for coronavirus throughout the region, and the disease positivity rate has increased to 3 percent — a figure last seen in the area in February, according to CNN. Last week, the county reported a 165 percent rise in coronavirus infections in a single week. More than 60 percent of Californians have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Those who aren't vaccinated are putting themselves at greater risk, Ghaly said. "It's really been...

Investigators made 22 fireworks-related arrests and seized six illegal firearms. Nearly half of those arrested live in Brooklyn, including two individuals with 42 and 33 prior arrests, respectively.
    Police in Vancouver, British Columbia have responded to more than 60 sudden death calls since Friday as a heat wave has hit the city, officials announced Tuesday. The Vancouver Police Department (VPD) urged citizens in a press release to only call 911 in cases of extreme emergency as the city was facing “unprecedented casualties.” Temperatures in Vancouver reached around 90 degrees Fahrenheit over the weekend, according to the Associated Press. “The vast majority of these cases are related to the heat,” VPD Sergeant Steve Addison said in the news release, though police are still investigating the cause. VPD warned that the high volume of calls was preventing officers from performing their regular duties, and said it would be a few days before everything was back to normal. #VPDNews: Vancouver Police are redeploying dozens of officers and are pleading for people to only call 9-1-1 during emergencies, as heat-related deaths have depleted front-line resources and severely delayed response times throughout the city. https://t.co/vjlLB9YmO2 pic.twitter.com/VqkE7juEtP — Vancouver Police (@VancouverPD) June 29, 2021 “Vancouver has never experienced heat like this, and...
    YouTube The Challenge “The Challenge” has seen some explosive rivalries in its earlier seasons and some cast members still clash online when it comes to past behaviors on the shows. One example of this is the feud between Beth Stolarczyk and Veronica Portillo, which has flared up occasionally in the past few years and especially recently in light of Beth’s return to the show for “All Stars.” During that season, Veronica’s close friend Jemmye Carroll also competed and developed a friendship with Beth. However, after the show aired, Veronica aimed a jab at the pair when she replied to one of Jemmye’s tweets and said in part, “A few years ago I got called ‘chubby’ during an Insta Live by your new pal aka ‘mom’ Beth & her sidekick Flora – referencing back to my body during BOTS1 where I was maybe 110 lbs.” Beth then accused Veronica of degrading women and bullying her in their earlier seasons while Jemmye refrained from commenting. She mentioned in reply to a fan that Veronica’s comment was “shady” and it made...
    President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden revealed that they are in the process of adopting a First Feline, and that feisty First Dog Major Biden has undergone training to get along with both cats and Secret Service agents — hopefully avoiding a potential Cat-tastrophe. On Friday morning, The Today Show aired Craig Melvin’s exclusive interview with President and Mrs. Biden, during which he broke a significant First Pet scoop — and not the kind you need a little blue baggy to contain. “There’s a question that millions of Americans have been wondering for a number of weeks now, Major. The first dog…” Melvin began. “We were going to bring him in to see you,” Dr. Biden said, to which Melvin quickly replied “Well I don’t know if that’s the best idea based on what I’ve heard about Major. Is he back in the White House?” “He’s back, yeah,” Dr. Biden said, adding “He is such a sweet lovable dog, he really is.” “Is he? Because I’ve heard he’s…” Melvin said, apparently referencing some of the bad press...
    New York Yankees: Gleyber Torres has been a major detriment in team’s cold April By: Nathan Solomon April 18, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditIt’s certainly been an April to forget thus far for the New York Yankees. Currently five games under .500 and in last place in the AL, not much has gone right for New York to start the season. One major problem the Yankees have dealt with early on is the struggles of shortstop Gleyber Torres. The 24-year-old has struggled on both sides of the ball and has been an early detriment to the team’s success. In 51 at-bats thus far, Torres has managed just 10 hits, which is an average of just .196. He’s driven in just one run all season, and his OPS sits well below .600 as only two of his hits have been for extra bases. Dating back to last season, Torres has gone 22 consecutive games without a home run. Torres’s offensive struggles are concerning, especially for someone who’s typically a major threat in the heart of...
    Major developments in the investigation of the 1996 disappearance of Kristin Smart will be announced Tuesday afternoon, April 13, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department said. The man who for years officials have described as a person of interest in the case lives in San Pedro. Officials are scheduled to discuss the developments during a 2 p.m. press conference. Investigators searched the home of the person of interest, Paul Flores, last year and his father’s home in Arroyo Grande last month. Flores, who was a California Polytechnic State University – San Luis Obispo student along with Smart, may have been the last person to see Smart and remains the “prime suspect” in the case, the Sheriff’s Department has said.

    The problem with political discourse today is that the parties can't even agree on the facts, opines comedian Roy Wood Jr., a longtime correspondent for "The Daily Show."  "Politics is very much like sports...if we can't both agree that it was a fumble, we can't even talk about whether or not it was a good game," Wood said. "You feel like sometimes you're arguing with a bunch of referees when it comes to politics in this country." He talked with CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett for this week's episode of "The Takeout" podcast. Wood also takes issue with the linguistic evolution of the word "woke" and how it's been "weaponized" by figures on the right to represent anything they disagree with. "The word has been generalized now," Wood said. "To me, woke just means someone who cares. Your eyes are open." The word "woke," like the term "cancel culture," has its roots in Black culture, but has been used by many on the right to become a derisive catchall phrase for left-wing ideology. Wood mocked the...

    YouTube Elisabeth Shue and Ralph Macchio star in 'The Karate Kid.' Ralph Macchio famously portrayed Daniel LaRusso in the first three Karate Kid films. Since 2018, he has also played the character in the acclaimed series Cobra Kai. Due to the fact he has made the iconic role his own, it may be surprising to some fans that other well-known actors could have been chosen to play the New Jersey-native. Nicolas Cage Was Under Consideration To Play Daniel GettyNicolas Cage is photographed in 2011. In a January interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Macchio stated that he believed Nicolas Cage was under consideration to star in the 1984 martial arts film. He also revealed that the studio was interested in Robert Downey Jr. and Charlie Sheen to be Daniel LaRusso.  In 2018 Sports Illustrated interviewed the cast and crew of the Karate Kid.

    People wearing face masks walks in Frankfurt am Main, western Germany, as the European Central Bank headquarter can be seen in the background.YANN SCHREIBER LONDON — European banks have seemingly weathered the coronavirus crisis well, but there are still some major challenges ahead that have the potential to rattle the sector. There's been a noticeable difference between the pandemic and the global financial crisis of 2008: European banks have a much stronger capital position now than they did before. This is in part thanks to much tougher requirements imposed by regulators in the wake of the 2008 shock — and it looks to be paying off. European banks are so confident about their capital positions that some are even ready to resume dividend payouts this year, despite regulators asking for caution. "The most important takeaway is that we have not seen a deterioration in asset quality yet since the onset of the crisis," Arnaud Journois, vice president at DBRS Morningstar, said about the latest set of quarterly results from European banks. Fahed Kunwar, head of European banks equity research at...
    The ‘free speech’ social network Parler spiked in popularity late last year before losing its ride on Amazon Web Services hosting and listings in major app stores following the January 6th riots that attacked the US Capitol Building. Now, according to Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, its CEO John Matze is out, informing staffers in a memo that he has been terminated by board members at the behest of major Republican political donor Rebekah Mercer. The app had been a preferred outlet for supporters of Donald Trump who saw it as an alternative to facing possible moderation on platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Now it remains offline without any update of when it may resume service, or publicly announced plan to restore its app on iOS or Android. In his memo on Friday Matze said “I have worked endless hours and fought constant battles to get the Parler site running, but at this point, the future of Parler is no longer in my hands.” Presumably some other z-tier social site will soon be in need of a leader...

    Drew Angerer/Getty Images After his continued spreading of election conspiracies, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says a number of major national retailers have dropped his brand. Speaking with Minneapolis Fox affiliate KMSP, the pillow magnate said that Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohl’s, and Wayfair have all told him they will no longer sell his product. Lindell told KMSP that the retailers are bailing because of pressure on social media from “leftist groups.” None of the chains have yet confirmed Lindell’s claim. In an interview with the Right Side Broadcasting Network (via CNBC), Lindell called out the retailers for fearing public backlash from his promoting of conspiracy theories that the 2020 election was stolen from President Donald Trump. “Kohl’s, all these different places. … These guys don’t understand,” Lindell said. “They’re scared. Like a Bed Bath & Beyond, they’re scared. They were good partners. In fact, I told them, ‘You guys come back anytime you want.’” Lindell, in a development reported Monday, is facing a lawsuit threat from Dominion voting systems. The company sent Lindell a letter on Dec. 23 stating it...

On Saturday, it was scheduled to undergo a hot fire test at NASA's Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. It was set to be the last test as part of a 'Green Run' of eight tests.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It has been one week since Thanksgiving weekend, and medical professionals say they’re concerned the holiday may have been a major community transmission event, noting COVID-19 numbers could continue to rise over the next few days and even weeks. “The concern [is] that Thanksgiving itself, the holiday itself, may have been a major transmission event across the country,” Dr. Gregory Schrank, Assistant Professor of Infectious Disease at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, said. This comes after the state hit a record-breaking, largest single-day new case total on Friday.

    On September 6, the Phase 3 trial of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Oxford and manufactured by AstraZeneca was suspended after a volunteer in the U.K. experienced a “neurological event.” On Monday, Johnson & Johnson suspended its Phase 3 trials of a vaccine have been “paused” after a volunteer in the United States experienced an “unexplained illness.” That means that two of the four major vaccine trials in the United States are currently on hold awaiting further investigation. On one hand these kinds of actions, in which a drug trial is suspended to allow a deeper look into a potential event, are common. However, the public scrutiny under which trials of COVID-19 vaccines is happening gives these events a great deal of attention with a public that has already demonstrated an increasing reluctance to trust what is widely seen as a rushed and politically motivated vaccine development process. This second suspended trial also points to the foolishness of trying to predict the availability of a vaccine by any date. One thing seems certain: If Donald Trump is going to produce a last-minute election surprise, it...
