    Spiers, who has a son, said that she resents the notion "that adoption is a simple solution, and I resent it on behalf of Maria, who found the choice she made traumatizing and still feels that pain, 44 years later. Even when an adoption works out well, as it did in my case, it is still fraught." The U.S. Supreme Court is deciding whether to uphold a Mississippi law that prohibits most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. A decision to uphold the law would run contrary to the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion case. Former U.S. congresswoman Katie Hill recently tweeted that being pregnant has bolstered her belief that women who do not wish to be pregnant should be able to get an abortion. "I didn’t think it was possible to become more pro-choice than I already was, but after 7 months of pregnancy all I can think about is how wrong it would be to make someone do this who doesn’t want to," Hill tweeted.
    Mika Brzezinski had a harsh reaction to ABC’s production of the Alex Baldwin interview with George Stephanopoulos, calling out the use of dramatic music and saying it was “cringeworthy.” “I am highly uncomfortable with this, it just seems highly brutal to watch on a number of levels,” Brzezinski said coming out of a clip of Baldwin, before pivoting to the reasoning behind the interview itself. “I can imagine his family is being hounded by the press and I can understand the need to set the record straight when the Twittersphere or, whatever the media out there in Google land is coming after you and they have a narrative that does not reflect your own personal experience, I can understand how that must be frustrating,” she said. “But I still don’t understand why put this all out there now given the level of severity and many different angles legally that this is under investigation,” she continued, before calling out to the production, or specifically the post-production, of the special. “But just the music and the producing of it — which is...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – It’s not exactly a Christmas miracle, but it’s pretty darn close after learning a pair of Bald Eagles, which a live Eagle Cam has been focused on since mid-October, is expanding its family. The female eagle, named “Rita” laid an egg on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving and it was all live on the Eagle cam.

    Acclaimed novelist Alice Sebold was a first-year student at Syracuse University in upstate New York when she was raped at knifepoint in May 1981.  The terrifying ordeal would come to define her writing career.  Her most famous novel, The Lovely Bones — later turned into a feature film starring Saoirse Ronan — is about a girl who is raped and murdered.  And Sebold’s memoir, Lucky, ploughed the same shocking literary furrow, the cover declaring: ‘In the tunnel where I was raped, a girl had been murdered and dismembered. I was told this story by the police. In comparison, they said, I was lucky.’  Critics rhapsodised about her unflinching description of the rape, her determination to wrest her life back from her attacker, as well as her ‘courage to speak the unspeakable’.  Acclaimed novelist Alice Sebold's terrifying ordeal would come to define her writing career with her most famous novel, The Lovely Bones, published in 2002 That she should be able to use a tragedy that might have ruined her life as the inspiration for a glittering literary career seemed entirely just. ...
    For almost 30 years the argument has raged ceaselessly back and forth around some of the smartest dinner tables in the land: Who really broke their vows first? Was it her husband's adulterous behaviour that drove the lonely and vulnerable Princess Diana to seek solace in the arms of another man?  Or was Prince Charles, confronted with evidence of his wife's cheating, emboldened into resuming his long-standing love affair with Camilla Parker Bowles? Diana herself couldn't have been clearer in her notorious Panorama interview when she said of her love rival: 'Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.' Her bulimia and self-harming, she said, were consequences of the prince's infidelity. And in recent times, millions of viewers of the Netflix series The Crown have been presented with this version of events as definitive: that Charles was the first to be unfaithful. But yesterday an unexpected voice entered the fray — one the public have never heard from before — to offer an entirely different narrative.  For almost 30 years the argument has...

    VIDEO3:2603:26As Activision plummets, two traders discuss what's next for the video game stocksTrading Nation Video game stock Activision Blizzard is in the middle of a massive sell-off. The stock fell more than 14% on Wednesday, its worst day since November 2008, after announcing delays for the latest releases in its Overwatch and Diablo franchises. The studio is grappling with sexual harassment and discrimination allegations that led to firings over the recent quarter and development disruptions. Activision is by far the worst performer among the top video game stocks. Its shares have fallen 28% in 2021 – competitors Take-Two Interactive and Electronic Arts are also lower for the year, but at just a fraction of Activision's losses. The video game stocks, bid up during the worst of the Covid pandemic lockdowns, have fallen out of favor with the reopening this year. "Now the stock has gotten very oversold on a weekly basis. You're down to levels in the mid-$60s which does hit … a trend from 2019, so a two-year area of trend line support," Mark Newton, global head of technical...
    The Rust camera assistant who quit on the night before Alec Baldwin accidentally shot the cinematographer recalled that there were only two safety meetings on set and said production did not take gun safety seriously.  Lane Luper, who served as the film's A-camera first assistant, said he quit because employees were being overworked, COVID-safety was not being enforced properly and gun safety was poor.  'I think with Rust, it was the perfect storm of the armorer, the assistant director, the culture that was on set, the rushing. It was everything,' he told Good Morning America about the events that led up to the fatal shooting. 'It wasn’t just one individual. Everything had to fall into place for this one-in-a-trillion thing to happen.' He then disputed the producers' claim that safety was a top priority on set, saying, 'I only personally remember two safety meetings that involved the entire crew.’ Luper ultimately accused the film's production of breaking the cardinal rule of having guns on set, which he said was, 'There shall never be live rounds anywhere on a studio lot, or...
    Just like modern felines, some sabre-toothed cats of 11,000–50,000 years ago suffered from hip dysplasia, and may have lived in packs so others might hunt for them. This is the conclusion of researchers led from the La Brea Tar Pits, who used CT scans to model the structure of one sabre-tooth's deformed hip bones. Hip dysplasia is a birth defect of the hip's ball and socket joints that today is not uncommon in pet cats and dogs and can result in pain and limited movement. The condition would have been extremely challenging for sabre-toothed cats like Smilodon, which are believed to have hunted large prey like bison and camels. Healthy limbs would have necessary to pounce towards, tackle and take down prey — meaning those with hip birth defects would have needed support from others.

    DANIEL FARKE has been told his job is safe - despite Norwich being on course to become the worst Premier League team ever. The Canaries are without a win in the first nine games - with just two points secured and two goals scored - with Saturday’s 7-0 humiliation at Chelsea a low point. 1Daniel Farke has been given a vote of confidence by NorwichCredit: AFP Sporting director Stuart Webber, whose team host fellow strugglers Leeds on Sunday, said: “Daniel and the guys have been here for about 210 matches. “And we've had bad spells, and we've had incredibly good spells within that.

    COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – After years of community concern over air pollution, several new air monitoring efforts are in the works around the Suncor Energy oil refinery in Commerce City. One those programs is run by the company, and another by a Latina-led nonprofit. For 21 years, Margot Gonzales has proudly called Commerce City home. It’s where she’s grown her family, built a career and wants to stay. “I’ve really liked Commerce City because it feels like a very safe and very quiet place,” Gonzales said through a translator. (credit: CBS) But the quiet hum of the air cleaner in her home exemplifies a long lingering concern. Her biggest questions involve the nearby Suncor oil refinery, a major polluter, and in 2019, the source of a yellow clay like substance falling from the sky. “My doubt is that we don’t have something that tells us what it is they’re working on,” Gonzales said. “What are the pollutants?” Last year, Suncor reached a settlement with the state to resolve more than 100 air pollution violations. Of the $9 million agreed,...
    Megyn Kelly compared Vice President Kamala Harris to the fictional HBO series “Veep” and said Harris “can’t even fake” her “affability.” “Kamala Harris … I don’t know, they are trying to rehab her I guess in advance of her run?” Kelly asked Thursday on “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast with her guest Dave Rubin. “And I don’t know that this woman as a politician is rehabable,” she added. “I really don’t.

    Chelsea Manning has asked a court in Canada to overturn her travel ban so she can visit friends, hoping to visit the country despite border agents eager to expel her. Manning, 33, has been blocked from visiting the country due to her conviction for leaking military secrets to WikiLeaks. Manning served seven years in prison from 2010-17 for breaking the Espionage Act. In one of his last acts as president, Barack Obama commuted Manning's sentence and she was released from her 35-year sentence.  In September 2017 she was stopped at the border, trying to enter Quebec, and has been fighting ever since to regain her right to enter the country. On Thursday a hearing was held in Ottawa, which government lawyers invited her to attend in person because they wanted to forcibly remove her if she lost her case.  Chelsea Manning, pictured in May 2019, is asking a court in Canada to overturn a ban on her traveling to the country 'The minister submits that holding an admissibility hearing without the person concerned being physically present in Canada would...
    Share this: The effectiveness of New York City’s school-based COVID testing program came under scrutiny on Wednesday when education department officials for the first time disclosed the number of students who consented to participate: just over a third of those who are eligible. In total, 192,705 students have submitted consent for the random testing program, First Deputy Chancellor Donald Conyers said at a city council hearing. About 550,000 students are eligible for testing, according to department officials. “These are not very reassuring numbers,” Brooklyn City Council member and education committee chair Mark Treyger said in response to the figures during the hearing.
    Brittany Murphy’s sudden death still raises questions 12 years later. The late American actress is the subject of a new HBO Max documentary airing on Oct. 14 titled "What Happened, Brittany Murphy?" which promises to reveal "chilling details" about her final days. It also explores her relationship with her husband, British screenwriter and producer Simon Monjack. The show, produced by Blumhouse Television, includes interviews with Monjack’s mother, Linda, and brother, James, as well as his former fiancée Elizabeth Ragsdale, who alleged he lied to her about who he was, People magazine reported on Wednesday. The "Clueless" star died in 2009 from a combination of pneumonia, anemia and multiple drug intoxication from prescription and over-the-counter medications. She was 32.

    One of the weirdest — and flat-out funniest — revelations from Stephanie Grisham’s tell-all book about her time working in the White House was about an unnamed aide, dubbed the “Music Man,” who would play the song “Memory” from the musical Cats in order to soothe former President Donald Trump’s infamous temper. Actress Betty Buckley won a Tony in 1973 for her portrayal of Grizabella, the character who memorably (pun totally intended) croons the aforementioned tune, in the original Broadway production of Cats, and she spoke with CNN’s Jim Acosta on Saturday about this latest news about her beloved song. Acosta thanked Buckley for joining the show, calling it “an honor” and “so wonderful” to speak with her. “I have to ask you, Betty, what was your reaction when you heard this bonkers story that they played your music to calm [Trump] down?” Buckley said she had been on set in New Mexico working on a television series when she woke up and found lots of messages from friends on her phone, “and they were saying thank you for saving the world and I...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – It’s allergy season in North Texas and allergists say they’ve seen an uptick in patients thinking it’s the cause of their runny nose, when in reality they have COVID-19. The symptoms of both prove to be very similar, which experts say makes distinguishing the two, tricky. READ MORE: Parents Suing 3 North Texas School Districts For Not Mandating Masks“COVID symptoms have been more similar to allergy symptoms right now,” said Dr. Marie Fitzgerald, an allergist at Family Allergy and Asthma care. “We’re actually diagnosing a fair amount of COVID, when people come in with what they think is straightforward allergies.” But there are a few key differences. The CDC lists common symptoms both COVID-19 and allergies as cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, headache, sore throat, and runny nose.

    NBC’s Hallie Jackson spoke with a woman journalist from Afghanistan who told the story of her dramatic escape from the country after it was taken over by the Taliban. Fatema Hosseini, writing for USA TODAY, published her recollections on Thursday of what it was like to be in Kabul on the day the Taliban seized control over the Afghan capital city. As a journalist who didn’t follow the Taliban’s oppressive societal norms, Hosseini described the alarm that overtook her family on the day of the takeover, the burning everything in her apartment that the Taliban would’ve deemed incriminating, and how she messaged her colleagues for help. “The freedom I had, it was gone right at that moment,” Hosseini told Jackson. “It changed in several hours.” Housseini’s recollections were interspersed with accounts from Kim Hjelmgaard, another USA TODAY reporter, who corresponded with her while reaching out to anyone who could advise her on how to evacuate. The two caught a break when Hjelmgaard contacted Alex Cornell du Houx, a U.S. Navy lieutenant colonel who got in touch with Ukrainian special forces....

    Parents of Ohio State University students bought two billboards as part of an ongoing protest of rising crime rates on the campus, prompting a new university safety plan that was announced Friday. “One is too many,” one billboard reads, featuring OSU student Chase Meola. Meola was shot and killed outside Phi Kappa Psi’s OSU chapter, according to Fox News. The other billboard states, “College should not be a crime scene,” featuring the hashtag #OSUProtectOurKids.” Parents who spoke to ABC 6 reacted to the safety plan with relief, and some credited the billboards.

    Republicans in Georgia are worried that Democrats may win the governor's mansion during the 2022 midterms after Donald Trump blasted GOP Gov. Brian Kemp during a Saturday night campaign rally.' Trump did not just tear down Kemp, he also spoke kindly of Democrat Stacey Abrams, who narrowly lost to Kemp in 2018 and is widely expected to mount a rematch. "Of course, having [Abrams] I think might be better than having your existing governor," Trump said. "Might, very well, be better." "Stacey, would you like to take his place?" Trump asked. "It's okay with me." It is highly unusual for a former president to trash a member of his own party running for re-election. "Former President Donald Trump returned to Georgia on Saturday to showcase a trio of loyalists he's endorsed in 2022 elections, deepening an internal rift among state Republicans that helped fuel upset Democratic victories in the last election cycle," Greg Bluestein reported for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "The visit only sharpened the division within a state GOP reeling from losses in November's presidential race and the Democratic sweep...

    The "freedom" to end up like this. 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.
