    As practice started Friday morning and a capacity crowd was still filing in to Halas Hall, general manager Ryan Poles stood alongside coach Matt Eberflus watching the Chicago Bears offensive linemen go through individual drills. On the other side of the collection of big bodies, assistant general manager Ian Cunningham studied intently as line coach Chris Morgan put players through their paces. For nearly 10 minutes, the top three men in football operations were observing a group that has been under scrutiny all offseason. The line captured the attention of those in charge this summer. Sometime between the end of veteran minicamp in mid-June and the start of training camp last week, a determination was made that help was needed. It led to the signings of left tackle Riley Reiff, 33, and right guard/right tackle Michael Schofield, 31. Both have an abundance of starting experience, something you could only say about one player the team already had — left guard Cody Whitehair. Center Lucas Patrick, the one veteran signed during the March free-agency period projected to start, is sidelined following...
    ONE soon to be mum says she lied to her mother-in-law about her baby’s name as she knew she wouldn’t keep it a secret. Baby naming can be full of awkwardness with people giving their unwanted opinions, and demanding to know the name you’ve chosen before you even want anyone else knowing. 1Knowing her mother-in-law couldn't keep a secret, the expectant mum told her a fake nameCredit: Getty Now, one woman has shared that when her mother-in-law was demanding to know the unborn baby’s name, she actually gave her a fake name, knowing that she wouldn’t be able to keep it a secret. Posting to Reddit the mum-to-be writes that her mother-in-law hasn’t been the most welcoming to her: “She’s a very stubborn person and hasn’t really accepted me as apart of the family yet, she always tells my fiancé how he could do so much better than me and that he’s fallen into the trap of having ‘my’ child. “She’s also one of them mums who posts every little detail of their life to Facebook like when my fiancé...
    DESPITE daydreaming about actresses Vicky McClure and Jodie Comer, married Jennifer Gilmour did not realise she was attracted to women. It was not until the mum-of-three’s husband James* brought up the topic of her sexuality that she began to connect the dots. 7Kate Winslet, right, in AmmoniteCredit: Alamy 7Jennifer Gilmour said: ‘ I wasn’t expecting the level of affection you experience with a woman. I felt like an equal' 7Chloe-Louise Bond said: ‘My life has now come into focus – finally, it makes sense’ Author Jennifer, 34, who has three children, aged 12, ten and six, says her eyes were opened after watching BBC series Killing Eve with James during lockdown. She says: “First, we watched film This Is England and I found myself thinking of little else than star Vicky McClure for the rest of the day. “We moved on to Killing Eve and I was equally distracted by Jodie Comer, but I just put that down to admiration more than anything else. “It was actually my husband who first made the suggestion that I might be a lesbian....
    ARSENAL’S previous recruitment policy was a “mess” – typified by the £72m deal for Nicolas Pepe. That’s the view of Gunners legend Alan Smith, who has hailed the work done by technical director Edu and boss Mikel Arteta to transform their transfer strategy. 2Nicolas Pepe has failed to produce since arriving in 2019Credit: Getty 2Arsenal legend Alan Smith has praised the work of Edu and Mikel ArtetaCredit: Getty And now, he has told them to go get Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans. The capture of £45m Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City has taken Arsenal’s early window activity to four players so far. Keeper Matt Turner, midfielder Fabio Vieira and winger Marquinhos have also walked through the door – keeping to the recent theme of signing young, talented stars. The club have come a long way since the days of relying on deadline day miracles or risky punts, such as forking out for Lille’s Pepe in 2019 only to be left disappointed. The Ivory Coast international has scored just 16 goals in 80 Premier League appearances, and is now down the pecking...
    With a drive into the right-center gap, Gunnar Henderson cruised into second base and secured himself a place in rarefied company. The 20-year-old Orioles prospect at Triple-A Norfolk hit for the cycle Tuesday night — and he needed only four at-bats in six innings to do so. Henderson’s historic night began with a single into right field. The infielder followed with a two-run triple in the third inning before his solo home run in the fourth set the stage for the double. Henderson told The Baltimore Sun that the impending feat crept into his mind as he stepped to the plate for his fourth at-bat during the eventual 8-2 win for the Tides against the Gwinnett Stripers. His first two swings exhibited that. “Tried to do too much,” Henderson said. “But then the last one, just kind of settled in and just said, ‘You know what? Just try to get your ‘A’ swing off without doing too much. I was, luckily enough, able to get it done.” The last time a Norfolk Tides player hit for the cycle, Henderson hadn’t...
    I’d never thought of myself as the marrying kind. Yet here I am in London’s Hatton Garden, shopping for an engagement ring for my girlfriend, Naomi. I’ve taken the grown-up decision to surprise her with a proposal, but, like most of the men I can see around me, I’m clueless about the right thing to buy. Luckily my two former flatmates, Philippa and Hope, are on hand for moral support and expert female advice. ‘Gold or silver?’ ‘Shape of stone?’ ‘Emerald or diamond?’ I had no idea there would be this many questions. When Max Dickins proposed to his girlfriend, he realised he couldn't think of anyone to be his  best man. He soon found himself asking the question: Why do so many men have so few friends? (STOCK) Eighteen shops later we give up and retreat to the pub. ‘So come on,’ says Philippa over a glass of wine. ‘Tell us, then. Who are you thinking of for the best man?’ And for what feels like the hundredth time that day, I have no idea what to say. That...
    Aaron Judge didn’t mince words when he was asked his thoughts on Josh Donaldson’s “Jackie” comment to White Sox star Tim Anderson. “Joke or not, I don’t think [Donaldson’s comment] was the right thing to do there, especially given the history with the series in Chicago,” the Yankee slugger and clubhouse leader said of his teammate after Monday’s loss to the Orioles. Donaldson received a one-game suspension by MLB on Monday for saying “What’s up Jackie,” as in Jackie Robinson, to Anderson, who is Black, while he was on base during the teams’ game on Saturday. The Yankee third baseman explained his misguided comment was meant as a joke because Anderson referred to himself as a modern-day Jackie Robinson in a Sports Illustrated article published in 2019. But Anderson’s point in that article was that he was breaking the “fun barrier.” “Disrespectful comment,” Anderson said after Saturday’s game. “Basically he tried to call me Jackie Robinson, you know ‘What’s up Jackie.’ I don’t play like that. I don’t play at all.” Donaldson’s comment later caused tensions to rise and the...
    Former U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-MN) took a swipe at Democrats’ crafting of the Build Back Better bill that the Biden administration has been trying to get passed since 2021. Speaking with the founder of The Lincoln Project, Steve Schmidt, on the Sunday episode of The Al Franken Podcast, the two began discussing the challenges that have plagued the bill from the start. Schmidt asked, “Do you think that there was a lot of stuff that was big stuff, transformative policy under Build Back Better?” “Yeah,” Franken said. Schmidt then admitted, “I don’t know what Build Back Better means. What I’m saying is if you take something important and you degrade it with jargon and nonsense words in an era where trust is completely collapsed, and there’s really no expectation from a competency perspective, right?” Schmidt then brought up the idea of universal Pre-K for children being a fundamental aspect of the bill. “Talk about that directly with conviction, travel around about it, build a coalition, right? You know, talk about a common interest, right? Build, support, and pass,” he...
    In the 16 months since Jan. 6, 2021, Donald Trump and the hosts Fox News hosts — especially its top-rated personality, Tucker Carlson — haven't exactly been subtle in approving of what happened and longing to see more right-wing violence. Trump has publicly mused about issuing pardons to the Capitol insurrectionists if he wins back — or rather steals back — the White House in 2024. Like many of the far-right Republicans in Congress, Trump has also made a martyr out of Ashli Babbitt, the QAnon believer who was shot during the Capitol riot when she tried to break into a secure area and quite likely attack members of Congress. Carlson, meanwhile, has been at the forefront of popularizing various often contradictory conspiracy theories, mostly intended to portray the Jan. 6 insurrectionists as noble patriots and lambaste any Republican who dares say otherwise. While these GOP leaders and media personalities are generally careful to avoid direct calls for violence, their overall message of sympathy and support for right-wing terrorism is undeniable. So Saturday's mass shooting in Buffalo, while horrifying,...
    At the core of the frenzied interest in Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter is an intuition that I think is right: The major social media platforms are, in some hard-to-define way, essential to modern life. Call them town squares. Call them infrastructure. They exist in some nether region between public utility and private concern. They are too important to entrust to billionaires and businesses, but that makes them too dangerous to hand over to governments. We have not yet found a satisfying answer to the problem of their ownership and governance. But some arrangements are more worrying than others. There are fates worse than Musk. TikTok, as we know it today, is only a few years old. But its growth is like nothing we’ve seen before. In 2021, it had more active users than Twitter, more U.S. watch minutes than YouTube, more app downloads than Facebook, more site visits than Google. The app is best known for viral dance trends, but there was a time when Twitter was 140-character updates about lunch orders and Facebook was restricted to elite universities....
    I DISCOVERED I was pregnant in an airport lavatory while travelling to Sweden in January 1996 following a shock phone call announcing my father’s sudden death at the age of 53. I already had a 15-month-old son. I was going through a divorce and was in the early stages of a relationship. 5Ulrika discusses terminating a pregnancy in the 1990s following the death of her father. Pictured with her family 5A pro-life rally in Washington this weekCredit: Getty Contraception had failed me and I was neither willing to have or prepared for another child. I chose a termination. There was not a moment’s doubt in my mind. I carry no guilt over that. It was clear cut. My body was not ready for a pregnancy, my mind even less so. To that end, there was no emotional trauma surrounding my decision because for me it was my right to have the procedure.

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins went into the playoffs knowing they would be without starting goalie Tristan Jarry for at least the first couple of games. Late in a marathon opener against the New York Rangers, they lost backup Casey DeSmith. Now, their postseason hopes could depend on their No. 3 goalie — 30-year-old Louis Domingue — who until Tuesday night had exactly one playoff appearance and had played in only three NHL games the last two seasons. He signed with Pittsburgh — his sixth team in five years — as a free agent last September and spent most of the season in the AHL. Domingue was watching an extraordinary duel between DeSmith and Rangers goalie Igor Shesterkin when DeSmith suddenly had to leave the game late in the second overtime. Up next: Domingue, who had just had a meal of “spicy pork” between the first two extra sessions. “I saw him go to the bench and I wasn’t sure why they blew the whistle,” Domingue said. “I honestly thought they were joking with me — they were...
    Getty A.J. Brown celebrates a score vs. the Indianapolis Colts. The blockbuster trade for A.J. Brown stole all the headlines during Round 1. Instead of sitting back and waiting for an unknown rookie like Treylon Burks to fall, the Philadelphia Eagles made a calculated move for a proven Pro Bowl receiver. It was a stroke of genius, but one that almost didn’t happen. Late Thursday night, after all 32 picks were completed, Howie Roseman detailed the events leading up to the trade. The Eagles’ general manager was on the phone with Brown’s agents trying to negotiate a contract extension up until the last minute. “It was getting tight, it was really getting tight,” Roseman said, “and we were just trying to balance it all and I’m just fortunate to have a great staff.” They finally hammered something out at about the same time the Texans selected Kenyon Green at No. 15. Three picks later, it was completed and the Titans chose Burks. “The hardest part was balancing it all in the time that we had,” Roseman told reporters,...
    Nicole Saphier, MD is a physician at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, an assistant professor at Weill Cornell Medical College and bestselling author of 'Panic Attack.' Her opinions are her own and not reflective of her employers. Who knew that one of the symptoms of COVID was whiplash? On Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci declared that the pandemic that has killed nearly 1 million people in the United States and more than 6 million people worldwide is apparently over. 'We are certainly right now in this country out of the pandemic phase,' he said at the tail end of a PBS NewsHour interview on Tuesday evening. Then less than 24 hours later, Fauci was scrambling to walk that statement back. 'The world is still in a pandemic,' Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told the Washington Post on Wednesday, 'There's no doubt about that. Don't anybody get any misinterpretation of that. We are still experiencing a pandemic.' 'We're really in a transitional phase,' he went on, 'from a deceleration of the [COVID case] numbers into hopefully...
    (CNN)It was 6:30 p.m., and I was exhausted. I'd been up on television at 5 a.m. and after an hour commute home, my husband and I had a chaotic dinner with our two kids followed by bath time.I was ready to collapse into bed. Just 10 more minutes of reading a bedtime story to my 2-year-old, and it would be lights out. He had other plans. I told him I was going to run downstairs to look for his favorite stuffed animal.

    A WOMAN found a dream dress for her friend's wedding but was disappointed when her mum told her it wasn't right for a wedding... and plenty of others agreed.

    HOPKINS, Minn. (WCCO) — There’s a lot of learning going on in one Hopkins classroom. Ashley is all ears. “She’s determined, because if there’s something she really wants to do or communicate, she’ll stick with it until she gets her message across,” said teacher Lori Komoto. The sophomore is known for her drive, and her charm. “She very popular, she’s so fun, she’s so silly,” Komoto said. She is strong, but she is sick. Ashley used to be the picture of health, a young gymnast. But over time, instead of controlling her body, it started controlling her. “I knew the moment I saw her,” said teacher Judy Griffin. She has Huntington’s disease, which mimics Alzheimer’s disease, ALS and Parkinson’s disease. It’s rare in adults, and almost unheard of in kids. But by chance, Ashley’s new teacher who recently moved here had heard of it. “Unfortunately, Ashley’s the second juvenile Huntington’s case that I have known,” Griffin said. “The first one was a young girl in Michigan, and I watched Briana deteriorate and eventually die from the disease. And...

    Priscilla Presley has revealed she 'knew' what she was getting into when she married Elvis. The 76-year-old actress says the early days of their marriage were 'difficult' but she understood what she was in for as she met the late King of Rock and Roll - who was one of the biggest heartthrobs of all time - when she was 14 as a schoolgirl in Germany, when she was 10 years his junior.

    FOR the past year, a woman has mysteriously received over 15 pairs of “really tacky” boots to her home. Simone Boutet said that after the first pair inexplicably showed up the first time, she began to expect their repeated arrivals ever since. 4Simone Boutet said she's been receiving mysterious packages for a yearCredit: Facebook/SimoneBoutet 4Boutet said she's received 'really, really, really tacky shoes'Credit: Facebook/SimoneBoutet While speaking to WLS-TV, Boutet called the shoes “really funny.” “And they’re really, really, really tacky,” she added.

    During a portion of an interview with NBC aired on Monday’s edition of “NBC Nightly News,” Department of Justice Inspector General and Chair of the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee Michael Horowitz said he wasn’t surprised at the speed with which fraudsters moved to obtain coronavirus assistance money, the way that the Small Business Administration distributed coronavirus assistance was “an invitation” for people who wanted to engage in fraud because the agency told people to “apply and sign and tell us that you’re really entitled to the money,” and that there weren’t “even minimal checks” to ensure that the assistance money was being sent out to the right people. Host Lester Holt asked, “Have you been surprised by how quickly fraudsters moved in on this money?” Horowitz responded, “Unfortunately, not really.” Horowitz also stated that the Small Business Administration in sending the money out, “basically said to people, apply and sign and tell us that you’re really entitled to the money, and of course, for fraudsters, that’s an invitation.” He also said, “What didn’t happen was even minimal checks to make...

    A GAMING fan who wanted their favorite character tattooed on their arm learnt a valuable lesson about paying attention to details.

    When the whistle blew on Adam Parkins’ professional rugby career, he made a canny conversion – to a welding apprenticeship. “At school I was looking at apprenticeships but, at 16, I got offered a place at Leicester Tigers’ training academy,” says Adam, now 32, from Leabrooks, Derbyshire. “The world was my oyster.” 1Success story: Adam loves his job as a welder at JCB Adam was then signed by Northampton Saints as a tighthead prop, making his senior professional debut on loan to Derby Rugby Club. “All my family came to my first home game to watch me walk out in front of 15,000 people –including my oldest son, who was three then. Playing sport professionally was such a buzz.” In 2017, Adam started to think about life off the pitch. “I’d had a couple of injuries and was 27 with a mortgage and kids,” says Adam, now a father of four. “I thought, ‘Maybe it’s time to retrain.’” Adam went to a careers fair where he visited the stand for JCB – one of the Midlands’ largest employers, which offers...
    SACRAMENTO —  Gov. Gavin Newsom wants California to join other states in piling on Russia for waging war against peaceful neighbor Ukraine. First, the fact that Newsom is following other governors into action seems strange. He always takes great pride in being first and incessantly boasts about it. Second, in firing shots at a target as Newsom is asking and other states are already doing, there’s invariably the risk of a ricochet that wounds you. If we’re hurt, too, is it worth it? And how much will it injure Russia anyway? As for not being the first, so what? It’s not nearly as important or impressive as Newsom seems to think. What we’re told from the start in my business is: “Get it first, but first get it right.” Newsom sometimes falls short on the second part. Concerning the financial blows being thrown at Russia, it’s prudent to ask whether taking a swipe at bully President Vladimir Putin is liable to hurt us as much or more than the target. We already know that worldwide economic sanctions against Russia are driving...
    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) stated that poor decisions in the past by the Biden administration have put us in a bad spot in the crisis in Ukraine and remarked that it would be helpful if some of the weapons and equipment the U.S. left behind in Afghanistan “was in Ukraine right now” to better arm the Ukrainian people to repel the invasion by Russia. Jordan said, [relevant remarks begin around 4:30] “Sean, think about this: Dan just talked about weapons and what we need to get to the Ukrainians, it would’ve been nice if that $85 billion of weapons and equipment we left in Afghanistan, if that was in — some of that was in Ukraine right now to help the Ukrainian people. That’d be nice. It’d be nice if the State Department would be focused on real diplomacy versus when they sent out the email that said, oh, what pronoun do you want to use? And, oh, we’re going to have gender-neutral passports now, for goodness sake. So, that’s the...
    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) spoke with the Right Side Broadcasting Network on Friday while attending the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando and offered her litmus test for what distinguishes a RINO (Republican in name only) from a true Trump-supporting member of the GOP. It involves embracing Trump’s disproven claims about the 2020 election. Greene said RINOs claim they “support President Trump’s policies” but not Trump himself. She added these allegedly fake Republicans will say they support investigating allegations of 2020 election fraud, but they won’t say “decertify.” “They start scattering and tip-toeing around it,” she concluded, before nothing her role on Jan. 6, 2021. “I proudly objected on January 6th!” Greene said. “I would object again today because I know for a fact there was so much wrong in that election and I believe it was stolen.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Wednesday he is revoking the wide-reaching emergency powers that put an end to the Freedom Convoy protest, but said an investigation into whether he was right to use it will not begin for two months. Trudeau made the announcement after authorities ended the blockades at the borders and the occupation in Ottawa by truckers and others opposed to COVID-19 restrictions - with some police officers accused of beating innocent demonstrators. The prime minister said the 'threat continues' but the acute emergency that included entrenched occupations has ended. His government invoked the powers last week and lawmakers affirmed the powers late Monday. 'The situation is no longer an emergency, therefore the federal government will be ending the use of the emergencies act,' Trudeau said. 'We are confident that existing laws and bylaws are sufficient.' The Emergencies Act allows authorities to declare certain areas as no-go zones. It also allows police to freeze truckers' personal and corporate bank accounts and compel tow truck companies to haul away vehicles. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announces the end of the...
    (CNN)A decade ago, Mitt Romney went on CNN and made a statement that was widely perceived as a major mistake."Russia, this is, without question, our number one geopolitical foe," Romney, who would be the Republican presidential nominee in the 2012 race against President Barack Obama, told Wolf Blitzer in March of that year. "They — they fight every cause for the world's worst actors."Obama and his team pounced on the comment, insisting that it showed Romney was hopelessly out of touch when it came to the threats facing the US.In the third presidential debate between the two candidates in October 2012, Obama went directly after Romney for that remark. "When you were asked, 'What's the biggest geopolitical threat facing America,' you said 'Russia.' Not al Qaeda; you said Russia," Obama said. "And, the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back, because the Cold War's been over for 20 years."The 80s called! Boom! Roasted!Read More THE POINT -- NOW ON YOUTUBE!

    Fans came from far and wide to the Rams Super Bowl parade Wednesday in downtown Los Angeles. Here are the stories of three fans’ faith and how they celebrated:Super Bowl win followed by a proposal Andrew Torres claimed an elevated spot on the sidewalk to watch the Rams victory parade. He carried his 8-month old daughter, Audrianna, who was also wore a Rams jersey. “We had to take her out of school,” Torres said, pointing to his 7-year-old daughter, Aria, sitting in a stroller. These past few days have been special for Torres and his partner, Darline Olguin, beyond the Super Bowl win. He proposed to his longtime girlfriend right after the Super Bowl. “I don’t think nobody knew,” Olguin said. Right after Rams won, family and friends popped confetti. Then, Olguin said, Torres looked at her and started his speech declaring his love. Then he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. “It was the perfect day,” she said.A fan since age 3 Earlier this week, Lulu Delgadillo made sure her plan...
    New York (CNN Business)On Saturday night former President Donald Trump declared that he was the victim of a scandal "far greater" than Watergate. He called for criminal prosecutions and "reparations." He said "in a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death."Trump's statement made no sense -- except to the Fox audience base that badly wants it to be true.Four days later, Trump-aligned media outlets are still amplifying his bogus message far and wide and ranting about the circumstances of his 2016 election win over Hillary Clinton. Tuesday's cover of the New York Post portrayed "HILLARY THE SPY." The Wall Street Journal editorial page said "Trump really was spied on." Fox hosts have called it a "bombshell" dozens of times.The actual court filing at issue is much less newsworthy than the explosion of false claims that have ricocheted from it. Reporters who went down the rabbit hole to examine the evidence found something very different from what Trump and his media allies said. That should have been the end of it — but...
    MICHELLE Jenkins, 27, a teacher, lives in Sheffield with her husband Owen, 33, an IT manager. Here, she reveals how her their relationship blossomed after saying 'I do' as strangers in March 2020. 2Michelle Jenkins and husband Owen got married after meeting on Channel 4's Married At First Sight GETTING down on one knee in our bedroom, my husband Owen took a diamond ring from his pocket. Crying, I choked out: ‘Yes!’ before we both burst out laughing. The irony was that we’d been happily married for exactly a year, since we said ‘I do’ as strangers in March 2020. Having met on series five of Channel 4’s Married At First Sight, we’d skipped the usual courtship and gone straight to the heavy-duty commitment. It was December 2019 when, on a whim, I decided to apply after seeing the show advertised on TV. I felt ready to settle down, and I wanted to meet a man who wanted that too. Internet dating just hadn’t worked for me – I’d met a few guys, but it never went anywhere....
    BOSTON (CBS) – As a resident of Marshfield, Massachusetts, Catherine Graham has been to neighboring New Hampshire plenty of times. Her upcoming trip to the Granite State, however, will be much different. Graham recently flew to California to visit her daughter and attend a taping of the Price is Right. She was selected to play the pricing game, winning a firepit and loveseat during the episode, which aired February 1. Thanks to her winning bid of $801, Graham was given the opportunity to go on stage with host Drew Carey and play “Side By Side.” That’s when Graham learned what she would be playing for – a trip to New Hampshire.

    BOSTON (CBS) – As a Massachusetts resident, Catherine Graham has been to neighboring New Hampshire plenty of times. Her upcoming trip to the Granite State, however, will be a much different commute. Graham recently flew to California and attending a taping of the Price is Right.

Thanks to her winning bid of $801, Graham was given the opportunity to go on stage with host Drew Carey and play “Side By Side.” That’s when Graham learned what she would be playing for – a trip to New Hampshire.

    ORLAND PARK, Ill. (CBS) — A 12-year-old girl on Friday night was reeling from a ride home from school she’ll never forget – after she helped everyone get out safely before her school bus was slammed into by a Metra train in Orland Park. Ava Gentile told her story exclusively to CBS 2’s Jermont Terry. Her two younger brothers were also on board. READ MORE: Downstate Judge Issues Order Against Mask Mandate For Illinois Schools; Gov. Pritzker's Office Appeals“So I’m like, ‘Jeremy, you have to get off this bus right now!’ and I grabbed Joshua – I said, ‘Don’t worry about anything,’” Ava said. Around 2:40 p.m., Ava was on the school bus when it was hit by an inbound Metra Southwest Service train at the 167th Street crossing, near 109th Avenue. The school bus driver actually got all the kids off in time – and they had less than a minute to do so before the Metra train slammed into the bus. There were five people on board – a driver and four students. And Ava, a sixth grader,...
    A WOMAN has taken to Reddit to share how her date had the audacity to tip their waitress poorly. In a post on the website where she could remain anonymous, she claimed she had never been so mortified. 3She could not believe what he was saying to their waitressCredit: Getty "I met a guy on a dating app. We hit it off and we arranged for our first date," she wrote. "Things were going well so far. We had sat down and started making some small talk. "Then our waitress comes over and asked us what we wanted to order. "I said what I wanted and gestured to him so he could order. He ordered and then pulled what I thought was about $15 on the table. "He said, 'This is your tip. Every time you mess up, I take some away.' "The waitress looked nervous immediately. I'm sitting there a bit shocked, but mostly embarrassed because I wasn't expecting this."

    (CNN)Former President Donald Trump in a statement Sunday said he wanted then-Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the 2020 presidential election, repeating the false claim that Pence had the power to do so and slamming recent bipartisan efforts to reform the Electoral Count Act.Trump falsely claimed that a bipartisan group of lawmakers working to reform the Electoral Count Act proves his claim that Pence had the power, according to the ECA, to overturn the 2020 election. Though the Act is vague, it is clear the role of the vice president is ceremonial and does not include the power to overturn the result of a presidential election."Actually, what they are saying, is that Mike Pence did have the right to change the outcome, and they now want to take that right away. Unfortunately, he didn't exercise that power, he could have overturned the Election!" Trump wrote. Trump's argument mirrors that of conservative lawyer John Eastman, who in a memo outlined steps, invoking the Electoral Count Act, to prevent the transfer of power in the days leading up to the January 6,...
    As the media world knows by now, President Joe Biden called Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy “a stupid son of a bitch” on Monday in response to the reporter’s question about inflation. “Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?” Doocy asked as he was being ushered out of the East Room after a photo op. “No, it’s a great asset,” Biden said sarcastically, apparently unaware his microphone was still on. “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.” Biden later called Doocy to “clear the air.” The reporter took it in stride and relayed that the president said, “It’s nothing personal, pal.” Doocy said he also responded by telling Biden he appreciated him reaching out. Addressing S.O.B.-gate on Tuesday’s The Five, Greg Gutfeld actually sided with the president. “Biden was right, it was a dumb question!” he said. “‘Will inflation hurt your chances?’ Of course, it will! So actually, Biden was correct. It was a dumb question.” Gutfeld then explained why Doocy’s reaction shows Fox News is different from CNN when handling hostile...
    CNN host Van Jones blasted President Joe Biden as being 'foggy' and 'meandering' during his Wednesday press conference and compared him to an Alzheimer's suffering Ronald Reagan. 'I think you have to be honest that you can be a foggy, meandering president. Say, like Reagan near the end, if you're winning,' Jones said during the evening newscast. 'But if you are foggy and meandering on key questions and you're also not winning, then you've got a real problem.'     Biden, 77, has been criticized over his cognitive health since he first started his presidential campaign.  Similarly, Reagan - whose memory and cognitive function were impacted by Alzheimer's towards the end of his life - was scrutinized by the public as some speculated he was battling the early stages of the disease in the late 1980s while  serving his second term as president. Reagan was 77 when he left office in 1989. In 1994, he revealed to the nation that he was battling the disease.

    So simple, so lifesaving. This series documents stories from the Herman Cain Awards subreddit. tracking the COVID mis- and disinformation on Facebook that is leading to so many deaths. Today’s cautionary tale has finally found the evidence she pretended didn’t exist.  We’ve seen the usual memes over and over again, so today we’re taking a break from that and keeping it short and sweet.  Did anyone say it wasn’t okay to be white?  It’s not okay to be racist. Too bad these people can’t see the distinction.  Well, the official global tally is 5.5 million people, with the actual number likely multitudes higher.  So what is “The Agenda,” actually?  A Facebook meme with no citations or data behind it declared something, so it must be real.  That’s what “do your own research” truly means.  Uh-oh.  Nineteen days! Just 19 days from “the evidence supports my stupid reluctance to reject a lifesaving vaccine” to death. I wonder if she sees the evidence now. (Well, not now.) But during those last moments, gasping for air as COVID-19 ravaged her lungs. I wonder...
    BEN CHILWELL revealed he played cricket up until 14 - and admitted he was 'maybe BETTER' at it than football. The Chelsea left-back made revelation while hitting a few balls with England cricket legend Kevin Pietersen, courtesy of Three. 2Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell and England cricket legend Kevin Pietersen Pietersen, a Blues fan, asked Chilwell about his cricketing past, and was left shocked to learn of the defender's experience. Chilwell, 25, said: "Probably started at six or seven. Played until I was 14. I think at the time I was potentially, maybe better at cricket." Pietersen, 41, responded: "Oh my gosh. I've got a problem here today." Chilwell played county cricket at school in Bedfordshire, so it was no surprise he had an answer for Pietersen's trademark spin bowling. KP remarked: "Are you sure you're not playing often?" But Chilwell responded: "It's been a while." The full-back signed for Chelsea in 2019 from Leicester, and has since scored seven goals for the club. Most read in Premier LeagueTRANSFERS LIVE Messi tests POSITIVE...
    Dame Joan Collins has admitted she misses the eighties when there was 'beautiful people, beautiful clothes' and plenty of 'greed'. The actress, 88, who is known for sporting an array of shoulder pads as Alexis Colby in US soap Dynasty from 1981 to 1989, enjoyed the decade of excess which saw 1987 film Wall Street's ruthless and wealthy investor Gordon Gekko-types become part of the financial culture, with Dame Joan saying she was a fan of the character. On Dynasty, she said according to the Mirror: 'It was the right show for the right time. It had beautiful people, beautiful clothes, beautiful sets, real flowers, real caviar, real anger behind the scenes from some of us.

Davyon Johnson saved a classmate from choking and pulled an elderly woman from her burning home on on December 9 and has become the toast of his Oklahoma town.  There have been pizza parties, award ceremonies and national news attention.

    Many might view the act of napping as a waste of time, but Thomas Edison would always take a quick snooze to boost his creativity – and a new study finds the famed American inventor may have been on to something. Researchers at the Paris Brain Institute found taking a quick nap taps into a 'creative sweet spot,' because the person only drifts into the first stage of sleep, known as hypnagogia state or N1. During N1, your muscles relax and you begin to have visions of recent events, which are found to help you push through a mental block to solve a puzzle, test or finish a project. The study found those who spent at least 15 seconds in N1 had an 83 percent chance of discovering the hidden rule to solving math puzzles, while those who remained awake had only a 30 percent chance.

              more   U.S. Representative Steve Cohen (D-TN-09) this week said states that want to enact pro-life policies, including Mississippi, are on the same level morally as states that legalized slavery more than 160 years ago. Cohen made his remarks on the floor of the U.S. House. He referred to Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case that recently went before the U.S. Supreme Court. The pending case pertains to the constitutionality of a Mississippi law that banned abortions after the first 15 weeks of pregnancy. Cohen said the case threatens abortion access throughout the country. “Women have a right to choose. It is a personal right and it’s enshrined in Roe v. Wade. Roe v. Wade was approved by the Supreme Court when I was in law school. The right of a woman to choose is a part of my political DNA. I hope it never changes,” Cohen said. “One of the justices asked one of the attorneys addressing the court ‘Why don’t we just leave it to the states?’ One of the last times Mississippi and its Confederate...
    He couldn't believe it. Jed Mottley couldn't afford to pick up his varsity letterman jacket when he ordered it in high school 28 years ago - but earlier this month, his brother scored a special thrift store find.  Jed played varsity football at Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1993.  When he went to pick up his letterman jacket at the time, his mother told him the family couldn't afford the $300 price tag, so it was left with the company.  'I went down to the store that year and picked everything out,' Jed told CNN. 'You had to kind of design the jacket yourself ... but I never saw the final product.'

    SAN JOSE – Sharks coach Bob Boughner was having a drink and watching Saturday Night Live in the comfort of his home after his team’s loss to the Washington Capitals when he got an unexpected call. It was from goalie James Reimer, who wanted to talk about what the Sharks could do – in just under 48 more hours — when they played against his former team, the Carolina Hurricanes, on Monday. “He wanted to talk about some things that he saw last year that they struggled with that maybe we could do,” Boughner said, “and we had a 30-minute conversation about Carolina, right? This is a guy thinking, two nights before a game, already about what we can do against Carolina.” The (well in) advance scouting report paid off. The Sharks hung in there against one of the best teams in the NHL before Kevin Labanc scored in the third period and Alexander Barabanov scored in overtime for a 2-1 win over the Hurricanes – the team Reimer played for from 2019 to 2021 before he...
    During an interview aired on Monday’s edition of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Kyle Rittenhouse said that his case was about self-defense, “shouldn’t have been a political case. It was made a political case. This had nothing to do with race,” and that if he had been convicted, “no one would ever be privileged to defend their life against attackers.” Rittenhouse said, [relevant remarks begin around 7:05] “I’ve never seen something so polarizing in my life. When it’s just — it’s obvious self-defense, if you look at the case, you look at the facts, no matter what your opinion is, or where you stand [on] it. This isn’t a — this wasn’t a political case. It shouldn’t have been a political case. It was made a political case. This had nothing to do with race, and the ways people are twisting this, it’s just sickening.” He later added, “[I]t wasn’t Kyle Rittenhouse on trial in Wisconsin. It was the right to self-defense on trial. And if I was convicted, no one would be able — no one would ever...
    Happier times Facebook is a menace. COVID-19 is a menace. Conservatism is a cesspool. Together, those three ingredients have created a toxic stew of malevolent death and devastation. We can talk about all those things in the abstract, look at the numbers and statistics, and catch the occasional whiff of seditionist right-wing rhetoric. But I hadn’t really fully understood just how horrifying that combination of right-wing extremism, Facebook, and a killer virus was until I became a regular at the Herman Cain Awards subreddit. This series will document some of those stories, so we are aware of what the other side is doing to our country. We first heard about the tragic saga of Rachel McKibbens’ family last week. As you might remember, her brother talked her father into refusing vaccination, and then when he got sick, resisting hospitalization. Her father died at home, gasping for air. Shortly thereafter, her brother got COVID, ended up in the hospital, then checked himself out and died at home.  That was a brutal story, one of the toughest we’ve seen. But, it turns out, things were...
