    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg outlined how the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package will help the Biden administration address racism present in cities across the country. Buttigieg, touting the benefits of the recently passed bill that has not yet been signed into law by the president, fielded a question from the Grio's April Ryan on the justice aspects of the package ensuring that "at least 40% of the clean investments in this bill will go to benefit the communities that are overburdened and underserved." GOV. LARRY HOGAN: BIPARTISAN INFRASTRUCTURE BILL IS A 'WIN' FOR BIDEN "I'm still surprised that some people were surprised when I pointed to the fact that if a highway was built for the purpose of dividing a white and black neighborhood, or if an underpass was constructed such that a bus carrying mostly black and Puerto Rican kids to a beach that would have been in New York was designed too low for it to pass by," Buttigieg continued. "But that obviously reflects racism that went into those design choices. I don't think we have anything...
    Monty Python told us to 'always look on the bright side of life', but it seems optimism isn't as ingrained in human nature as previously thought, a new study claims.   Researchers have found that humans aren't predisposed to optimism, nor do we go around with 'a pair of rose-tinted glasses' – a belief that may have biased the findings of previous studies.  The experts cast doubt over past research supporting the existence of 'irrational optimism bias' – that humans innately have a feeling that everything will be alright.   Glass half full or half empty? A 'sizeable body of literature' suggests people's belief updating - beliefs to take into account a new piece of information - is optimistically biased, such that their beliefs are updated more in response to good news than bad news. The new research paper refutes this idea, however IRRATIONAL OPTIMISM BIAS An 'irrational optimism bias' describes when people look too much on the bright side of life. They underestimate their chances of negative experiences while overestimating their chances of positive events. Irrational optimism bias can contribute to financial crises, people's failure...

Ro KhannaRohit (Ro) KhannaSunday shows preview: Frustration runs high as infrastructure talks hit setback Overnight Energy & Environment — Presented by American Clean Power — Big Oil's day in Congress Oil companies downplay early climate knowledge under fire from Dems MORE (D-Calif.) on Sunday expressed optimism that "maybe one Republican" would vote for a standalone bill that provided paid family leave after the provision was dropped from the latest iteration of a budget reconciliation framework. Appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation," Khanna acknowledged that losing key climate provisions in the bill was a "setback," but pointed out that Democrats were currently working with a razor-thin majority, less than what former Presidents Obama and Clinton had when they were in office. "I mean, they had 57, 60 senators. Here you've got 50/50," Khanna told host Margaret Brennan, who noted that the reconciliation package had zero Republican senators behind it. "And that's the question Why isn't there a single Republican who's for paid family leave?," Khanna asked. "Why is there no one asking the Republicans they claim to be the...
    Fox Sports is desperate to see its MLB studio show recreate the comradery and candor portrayed by TNT’s Inside the NBA. They came close Thursday night, when the broadcast savagely roasted Alex Rodriguez and his Page Six dating history. The Tampa Bay Rays began their Divisional Series against the Boston Red Sox with ease Thursday night. Depicting zero stress during their 5-0 Game 1 victory, Rays players began chomping on popcorn in the dugout, led by slugger Nelson Cruz. Fox Sports highlighted the amusing moment during their postgame show featuring Kevin Burkhardt, David Ortiz, Frank Thomas and A-Rod. “It got us thinking, it’s not the first time that people have eaten popcorn during the game,” Burkhardt said. And after showing the Rays enjoying their mid-game snack, Fox Sports dug up video of A-Rod being fed popcorn by one of his many celebrity exes, Cameron Diaz. “KB, that’s maybe why I’m single,” a humiliated Rodriguez responded, generating a rousing fit of laughter from his co-hosts. A-Rod’s popcorn moment with Diaz occurred in 2011 at Super Bowl XLV between the Green Bay...
    Alex Rodriguez was on the receiving end of some playful ribbing during the American League Division Series broadcast on Thursday night. The commentators were remarking on the Tampa Bay Rays eating popcorn in the dugout in the third inning of their ALDS matchup against the Boston Red Sox. Randy Arozarena, Nelson Cruz and other Rays players were sitting eating popcorn with a 2-run lead.

Rodriguez was dating Diaz at the time. "KB, that’s maybe why I’m single," Rodriguez said. Burkhardt, David Ortiz and Frank Thomas joined Rodriguez in a laugh. Tampa Bay picked...
    When was the last time you made a sound decision while wiping away tears? Or shaking in fury? Or sweating with stress? Your judgment was probably off during those emotional moments. Maybe you said something you later regretted — or got bangs. Or maybe you tapped a targeted Instagram ad for a pricey sweater, which you bought and never wore. Feelings influence decisions, including whether we should add to cart. “Emotions and decision-making are very strongly connected,” says Kristy Archuleta , financial therapist and professor of financial planning at the University of Georgia in Athens. “Sometimes our emotions override our thinking process” and “flood our mind,” she adds. To save money, please don’t enter your credit card information as you’re wading through that flood. FEELINGS, FINANCES AND TURBULENT TIMES Making a logical, Spock-like decision is tough, particularly nowadays. The ongoing pandemic adds a “layer of stress” to our lives, Archuleta says. As if more than 18 months of that stress weren’t enough — what’s that? — it’s the holiday season ringing your doorbell. As usual,...
    Amelia Gray Hamlin Shares Cryptic Post After Scott Disick Split Washington is now the stock-market ‘wild card’ as debt-limit showdown looms © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad How comfortable are the 76ers — not just GM Daryl Morey, but more importantly owner Josh Harris — with being uncomfortable? How comfortable will Ben Simmons be with sitting out and not playing in training camp and maybe to start the season — with fines mounting the entire time? Those are the bottom line questions in the Ben Simmons trade saga as the Philadelphia 76ers prepare to head to training camp next week. Simmons has signaled his intention to hold out of training camp as he demands a trade, and the 76ers continue to expect him to show up while they look for a deal. However, sources told NBC Sports Philly has yet to field an offer near what they seek (the best offer right now may be bits and pieces from Minnesota centered around D'Angelo Russell). All of which made Doc Rivers’...
    When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were named by Time Magazine as being among the '100 most influential people in the world', their extraordinary cover photograph came in for much mocking on social media. Meghan, with a full head of voluminous hair, stood front and centre as Harry crouched behind her, basking in her glow.

    "CNN snaps their fingers, Jeff Zucker snaps his fingers, and Trump clicks his heels, and hops up there at attention and says, 'how high do you want me to jump, boss?'" Jones angrily continued. Trump's suggestion at the rally was also met with some booing from the audience. "You know what, I believe totally in your freedoms, you gotta do what you have to do, but I recommend, take the vaccines! I did it. It's good. Take the vaccines," said Trump. "Now, that's OK. That's all right. You got your freedoms," Trump replied after some booing. "But I happen to take the vaccine. If it doesn't work, you'll be the first to know. OK? I'll call up Alabama and say, 'Hey, you know what?' But it is working." Jones was caught deriding Trump in a video from a documentary leaked in March where he said that he wished he had never met Trump and that he was sick of the former president. Here are the comments from Trump about vaccines: Trump...
    Former President Donald Trump is "a dumbass," according to far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. The Sandy Hook shooting denier made the colorful comments during a segment of an episode of Infowars on Sunday. Jones was condemning the former president for encouraging attendees at his Alabama rally over the weekend to get vaccinated — an honorable initiative, for once, by Trump.

"I do - you gotta do what you have to do. But I recommend — take the vaccines! I did it, it's good!

    There is a Star Wars series that fans really like, although it is not considered canon of the saga since Disney bought it. From 2003 to 2005 the series was released Star Wars: Clone Wars from Genndy Tartakovsky, the creator of other legendary animation shows like Dexter’s Laboratory, The Super Chicks, Samurai jack and Primal. Despite its cartoonish appearance, the series Star wars it had everything, war, action, adventure and most importantly, it did justice to the beloved saga. Set between the Episode ii and the Episode III, we can see how the Jedi fought in different battles Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Now in a recent interview Genndy Tartakovsky reveals why the show continues to have such an enthusiastic following. “I like to think that it has had a lasting impact and I think we were one of the first things George Lucas let out for someone else to do, right? Besides some books and comics and stuff, there was really nothing else in the movie media. “ “So we did a good job. That was, what, 10...

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday politely explained to a reporter insisting anti-vaxx Trump voters are refusing to get inoculated because the former president allegedly did not get enough "credit" for the vaccine. The reporter wanted to know if the White House would "consider highlighting or acknowledging, in a greater way," Trump's "role in creating the vaccines," as a means "to assure the rural voters who still support President Trump and are hesitant to get the vaccine." Psaki was not buying the reporter's claims, which did not appear to be based on any facts. "Do you have data to suggest that that's the issue that's preventing people from getting vaccinated?" she calmly asked. The reporter, refusing to let go of a losing argument, offered that, "the communities that have the lowest vaccination rates did seem to vote for President Trump." Again, Psaki was unconvinced, and decided to give a lesson in basic logic. "Okay, but I what I'm asking you is if information related to whether or not the former president got credit is leading people not to...
    The Internet has become one of the most outstanding inventions of the last century, and the digital revolution to not have a ceiling right now. Today it is almost impossible to talk to someone who does not have access to the network, and it is that for a few years, the amount of information, resources, curiosities and a long list of things, we can find them thanks at a single click and from the living room of our house. The origins of the internet date back to the 1960s when the United States military created, in the middle of the Cold War, a hidden service to have its own communications network. Faced with a hypothetical Russian attack, the Americans wanted to ensure that they had the maximum military information on the network, creating in 1969 the well-known first network, Arpanet. It was rudimentary: four computers connected to different universities in the country. In two years there were already 40 computers, and the Internet explosion was in the making. Throughout all this time, the network has grown exponentially to what we...
    Vice President Kamala Harris quipped that she will have to stop agreeing to take on more responsibilities from the president amid criticism over her handling of the southern border crisis and claims her office is plagued by fighting. About 19 minutes into the 20-minute interview with BET that aired Friday, broadcaster Soledad O'Brien rattled off Harris' major undertakings.  'Immigration, increasing broadband access, black maternal mortality, racial inequality, women in the workforce, infrastructure. We just talked about voting rights. That seems like a lot for one person,' O'Brien said to Harris.  'Can one person do all that realistically?' O'Brien asked.  Harris responded by saying she multitasks and admits there's a lot to get done.  Then she jokingly said, 'Yeah, maybe I don't say "no" enough,' and then laughed.  'But I do believe that these things are achievable. It's just a lot of hard work, but that's why we're here and that's what people wanted. Right?' Harris said.  'We will go into these positions that we will arrive in these positions, and we will work hard and get things done. And that's what motivates me,...
    J.D. Vance, the author of Hillbilly Elegy who recently announced his candidacy as the “conservative outsider” vying for Sen. Rob Portman’s (R-OH) soon-to-be-vacated seat, is vowing to raise taxes on companies shipping jobs overseas, as highlighted in a Protect Ohio Values ad released Friday. The PAC ad highlights Vance’s vow to cut taxes on the middle class and raise them on those who outsource and thereby undermine America’s economy. “We have to send people to Washington who are willing to shake the system up. Because the leaders of this country, who have plundered it, have decided they’re going to reward their friends with special tax breaks, and not the companies right here in Middletown, Ohio,” Vance says in the ad. “How about the middle class people in this community get tax breaks? And we’re going to raise taxes on the companies shipping our jobs overseas,” he vows. “That’s why I’m running to be your next U.S. Senator from the state of Ohio.” Watch: “The ad highlights a major difference between JD Vance and the other candidates in the race: JD...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: When confronted with a closed bathroom door, should one knock gently to see if it’s occupied, or just try the handle? I was taught to knock at all closed doors when someone might be inside, under my mother’s theory that if someone is in a room with a closed door, they want privacy. If it is a restroom, they definitely want privacy, and it is not unknown for restroom doors to lock insecurely. However, I have also been told that knocking is rude, and that I should just gently try the handle. I did this yesterday at a restaurant. The door was not locked, and a mother was helping her preschooler wash his hands. I apologized, and she laughed and said that he had just unlocked the door before she grabbed him to make him wash his hands. Related Articles Miss Manners: My host refused to eat.

    NAPERVILLE, Ill. (CBS) — Even before the first responders’ pleas for help Sunday night, the forecasters at the National Weather Service Office already knew the storm storm was going to be trouble. “On our radar signature you can see evidence of debris getting lofted into the sky. When you see that it is very sobering. We hope everyone is going to be OK,” said Eric Lenning, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service Chicago. READ MORE: Driver Ticketed After Girl, 11, Is Hit By SUV In Norwood Park Doppler radar identified the storm as a tornado well before the survey crew even arrived there. Monday it was a question of just how strong the storm was. There are at least 28 indicators a surveyor can look for, and one of them is tree damage. Many of the yards and streets of Naperville are littered with either entire trees or large branches. The way they are laid out is one of the things Lenning looked at to determine just how strong a twister it was. “So you can tell the...
    Jon Stewart clashed with fellow late night TV titan Stephen Colbert on Monday when he suggested that COVID-19 originated in a Wuhan laboratory.  Stewart, who joined his friend on the first in-person The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in 15 months, was asked what he thought about the 'science' behind virus detection and prevention. To which the liberal host replied: 'I think we owe a great deal of gratitude to science.' 'Science has, in many ways, helped ease the suffering of the pandemic, which was more than likely caused by science,' he added, suggesting the virus was manmade. The comment earned him laughter from the crowd at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York, and a confused look from the host. He then asked Stewart: 'Do you mean perhaps there's a chance that this was created in a lab?' 'A chance? Stewart responded. 'Oh my god, there's a novel respiratory coronavirus overtaking Wuhan, China, what do we do? Oh you know who we should ask? The Wuhan novel respiratory coronavirus lab.'

    Madison LeCroy and her new man, plus more celeb couples Instagram debuts 27 Ugly Truths About Retirement The talk du jour around Ben Roethlisberger this week at veteran minicamp is centering around whether he can absorb the Pittsburgh Steelers' radically new offense. After all, new offensive coordinator Matt Canada is regarded as a wily fox who will change up formations quite frequently, use heavy motion and empty his bag of tricks in the playbook. On top of that, Roethlisberger has had a cozy 17 years, essentially running the same offensive system. There might have been minor changes throughout that time, with slight variations depending on the coordinator. But a lot of that was window dressing for the same abode. “When you have had the same offense, or a similar offense for 17 years and all of a sudden something looks the same, but it’s called something different, it’s very different and a big challenge," Roethlisberger said.  © Provided by Yahoo! Sports Ben Roethlisberger will have to learn a vastly different offense for the Pittsburgh Steelers this season. (Photo by...

    A SEXPERT has revealed that 15% of women don't reach orgasm, and has explained exactly what it feels like for those who do. Writing for News.com.au, Nadia Bokody, from Australia, even went as far as to say that female pleasure should be taught in sex education. 4Nadia Bokody, from Australia, said that female pleasure should be taught in sex educationCredit: Instagram Here, she explains... Since I first started writing about sex, women have been asking the same question: “How do I know if I’ve had an orgasm?” It’s a query that’s far more common than you might think. In fact, it’s estimated around 15 per cent of vulva owners have never reached climax. And given the shame and mystery surrounding female pleasure, my guess is the real number is higher. Though I’m an outspoken advocate of not making sex goal-oriented (that is, having sex that isn’t focused around achieving an orgasm), I’m deeply troubled by this statistic. Largely because it speaks to a wider issue within our culture when it comes to women’s body autonomy. 4Nadia said 15% of women don't...
    Tuesday on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson opened his program by reacting to an announcement earlier in the day that health officials were recommending to halt the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Carlson said overall, the announcement warranted skepticism about the vaccine’s efficacy and pointed to remarks from Biden health adviser Anthony Fauci and CDC director Rochelle Walensky. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: We’ve heard an awful lot about the coronavirus vaccine over the last several months. It’s a massive achievement as a scientific matter, something all Americans can be proud of, but that’s not the context in which we’ve heard about it. Joe Biden’s first speech to the country urged the entire population to take this vaccine immediately. The celebrity industrial complex has reinforced that demand ever since, “Get the shot. Get the shot. Get the shot.” OK, we will. We’re not against it on principle. Like almost every American, we’re grateful for vaccines, but before we take this one, a few questions about it, about this specific vaccine. There are two things we’d like to know...
    Tucker Carlson went ahead and actually suggested to his millions of viewers Tuesday night that the reason public health officials are still advising vaccinated people to be cautious is that the vaccines don’t work “and they’re simply not telling you that.” Carlson started by saying, “We’ve heard an awful lot about the coronavirus vaccine over the last several months. It’s a massive achievement as a scientific matter, something all Americans can be proud of, but that’s not the context in which we’ve heard about it.” Carlson, who said in a recent segment of his show “I think of myself as pretty pro-vaccine,” told viewers, “We’re not against it on principle. Like almost every American, we’re grateful for vaccines, but before we take this one, a few questions about it, about this specific vaccine.” He covered the news of six individuals out of the millions who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine who developed blood clots, leading to the FDA and CDC recommending a pause on that vaccine in particular. Carlson then speculated as he told viewers, “It is possible, in...
    On the Fox Business Network on Friday, Fox News Medical Contributor and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Professor Dr. Marty Makary criticized the CDC’s guidelines on travel by saying that low-risk people who haven’t been vaccinated can travel by air if they take mitigation measures and the CDC’s guidance is missing the fact that everyone’s not equal risk. Makary said, “Well, the key omission in the CDC guidance and in the comments [was] the fact that everybody is not the same risk, right? If you’re very low risk and you don’t have a chronic condition and you want to travel, maybe it’s not essential that you limit that travel to just what’s absolutely critical, maybe you can travel with a mask liberally and enjoy your life and live a life. You can do that with mitigation. The data’s in. But if you’re high risk, then I would say limit that risk — limit that travel to essential travel, if you’re unvaccinated. Remember, this guidance came about four months too late. We got the vaccines in December. Why are we learning...
    Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren made a bold prediction on Justice with Judge Jeanine Saturday evening: Democrats had long been planning to remove President Joe Biden from office and replace him with Vice President Kamala Harris. Lahren’s remarks were not contradicted by the show’s host, Judge Jeanine Pirro, or her fellow commentator on the show, Leo Terrell. Pirro introduced the segment with the now-viral video of Biden tripping up the stairs as he boarded Air Force One on Friday, and denouncing the “hysteria” and “disgusting hypocrisy” from the media, comparing their coverage of Biden’s stumble to former President Donald Trump walking slowly down a ramp after giving a speech at West Point last year. “We all feel sorry for Joe Biden,” Lahren spoke first. “Nobody wants to see anybody struggle, ever. But the double standard is the only standard of the left.” Lahren then launched into a conspiracy theory that Democrats had been planning for a long time to replace Biden with Harris in a few months: The fact of the matter is this: the left is going to dump Joe Biden in five months,...
    New York : Singer Yuridia, a graduate of the La Academia program, used her social networks to reveal, within the framework of International Women’s Day, that as a child she was a victim of sexual abuse. “I feel comfortable telling this because after all I am a survivor, I can say that I was able to achieve things in my life and that at the end of everything I found the peace and happiness that human beings instinctively seek,” shared the interpreter, from 34 years old, on her Instagram profile, along with an image of her as a child. “In that photo he was maybe 5 or 6 years old, it was at this time that it happened. I was at my neighbor’s house playing dolls in her room when suddenly I was alone; The minute his brother enters, who, at that time, was maybe 18, dropped his pants and while he looked me in the eye and laughed, he began to play explicitly“. Yuridia, responsible for hits such as “Ya Te Olvidé”, “Cobarde” and “Te Wrong”, pointed out...
    Meghan McCain lashed out at Dr. Anthony Fauci during Monday’s broadcast of “The View,” questioning comments he made over the weekend. McCain shared a clip of Fauci telling CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” that despite the vaccine, people should hold off on getting together with family and that Americans could still be wearing masks in 2022. WATCH: “So I was very frustrated when I saw this clip,” McCain began, pausing to acknowledge the massive loss felt by hundreds of thousands of Americans who lost family members and friends to the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s horrific and very sad, and the grief that our country is going through should not be downplayed.” McCain then pivoted back to Fauci, saying that his messaging didn’t appear to match up with what was happening in other countries where the vaccine was also rolling out. (RELATED: ‘It’s Possible’: Fauci Says Masks Could Still Be Around In 2022) “Dr. Fauci is going on CNN, and he can’t tell me that if I get the vaccine, if I’ll be able to have dinner...
    This Thursday, Telecinco issued a new chapter of The island of temptations 3. Among the novelties, it was possible to see how Sandra Barneda offered the boys that one of them saw the girls for 10 minutes. The participants deliberated that it was Diego, as he had many doubts with Lola. Upon returning, he recounted what he had seen, including that Claudia, Raúl’s girlfriend, was with Tony in his room. This caused the canary to collapse in a matter of seconds. For their part, Claudia and Tony were preparing the latter’s costume suit for a themed party. “It was a jug of cold water, because I was not expecting it at all. I’ve always been very sure of myself And here I have realized that I am weaker. This is fucking shit, fucking garbage. What are you playing at? It makes me angry that he doesn’t think of me. I would never do that, never. I may be wrong but I would never bring anyone into the room. I’m sick of him playing with me, nobody plays with me....
    Sarah McLaughlin once sang: “When somebody loved me, everything was beautiful/Every hour we spent together, lives within my heart/And when she was sad, I was there to dry her tears/And when she was happy, so was I, when she loved me.” Tucker Carlson, however, doesn’t seem to have ever run into that experience. Instead, the Fox News commentator took to the airwaves with a sinister plot: Maybe, just maybe, Joseph Biden’s 44-year marriage was actually the work of political consultants who imagined that long ago that if they played their cards right, had a child, and decades later they stayed together, just maybe, just maybe, it would cover up a plot to cover up senility that wouldn’t be evident until 40 years later. That, in a nutshell, is the conspiracy being floated by the bloviator who takes up a spot on Fox News nightly. That he knows the Biden marriage is a sham. He knows it because, well, he offers absolutely no proof at all. He doesn’t apparently need any to get on the airwaves and begin making accusations about why a couple would hold...
    It has been three weeks since Joe Biden’s inauguration and Benjamin Netanyahu has yet to receive a call from the White House. The Israeli prime minister has let it be known he is not happy but he is waiting by the phone. Danny Danon, the head of World Likud, the global arm of Netanyahu’s party, tweeted a message to Biden on Wednesday, pointedly listing all the countries whose leaders have recently been graced by a call from the Oval Office. “Might it now be time to call the leader of #Israel, the closest ally of the #US?” asked Danon, who was Israel’s ambassador to the UN until last year. For good measure he added: “The PM’s number is: 972-2-6705555.” Story continues That number is listed on the website of Israel’s ministry of foreign affairs, but calls are answered by a recorded message, saying that it is out of service. “Please check the number and dial again,” the message says. Netanyahu has said he expects to receive a call from Biden soon. “He is making calls to world leaders according to...
    Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski teamed up for a super bowl ad that suggests the real reason behind the star QB’s move to Tampa Bay. “I got one word for you: retirement,” Gronkowski tells Brady in the T-Mobile ad set one year ago before Brady left the New England Patriots. (RELATED: Tom Brady Says The Buccaneers Have ‘A Lot Of Work To Do’ Before The Season Starts) “If you retire now, you’re gonna be walking on soft sand in a week,” he adds. “Just come to Florida and feel the wind in your hair. Retirement is like winning another one. Maybe I’ll even join you.” WATCH: This ad will not air on Sunday. Why was it banned? #TheGOATin5G  pic.twitter.com/Vh9eBvVmXU — T-Mobile (@TMobile) February 5, 2021 During the ad, the superstar QB’s conversation with his former Patriots’ teammate is affected by spotty coverage. So Brady actually hears something quite different. “If you retire now … you’re soft and weak,” the super bowl winning QB apparently hears from Gronk. “Just come to Florida and win another one. Maybe I’ll even join...
    SENATE Republicans say Americans may have to wait "a couple of months" until they receive a $1,400 stimulus check. GOP lawmakers in the Senate quickly dismissed quick action on one of President Joe Biden’s top priorities of a $1.9 million economic package.  2Republicans have warned that the $1,400 stimulus check 'maybe a couple of months from now'Credit: Getty Images - Getty In order to pass the bill, Dems need to convince ten Republicans in the Senate, which might mean asking Biden for less funding that initially requested or bypassing the 60-vote threshold by using a reconciliation vote.  However, Biden's team is expecting to mount an aggressive campaign to get Congress to act on the bill, a difference from the previous administration that largely failed to engage lawmakers on legislative priorities. Republicans who would have been hesitant to pass the bill before are reportedly eager to get to the finish line in order to speed up the distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine.  Senator Susan Collins, R-Maine, one of the most moderate Republicans, said she's "sympathetic" to boosting vaccine funds but can’t see...
    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — A big name baseball free agent has finally signed. Let’s hope that George Springer’s reported deal will serve as a spring board for the rest of MLB free agency to get up and get going, because this has been one boring offseason. To say the market has been slow to materialize would be underselling just how dull of an offseason it has been in baseball. But that kind of goes with the rest of the game — slow and boring. According to ESPN, only 21 of the 181 free agents this offseason had come to an agreement prior to Tuesday. But better late than never, we guess, and now teams can look at the six-year, $150 million deal that Springer reportedly received from the Toronto Blue Jays and get their own offseason wheeling and dealing started. Springer’s deal must have been music to the ears of free agents like Trevor Bauer and J.T. Realmuto, both of whom are awaiting their own $100-million pacts. Closer to home, hopefully the Red Sox will finally...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: How can I make people aware of the need for safety precautions? I see people on the street who are not social distancing and not wearing masks. I just want to yell at them that they’re being stupid and endangering themselves and others. But I suppose you would say that’s impolite. GENTLE READER: Yes, and it is also counterproductive and, unfortunately, provocative. You may be sure that there is not a soul left who is unaware of the recommended safety guidelines. Those who disobey the rules have chosen to do so, for whatever reason — they don’t believe the science, they consider it a nuisance, or they are indifferent to endangering others.

    (CNN)Since a common symptom of Covid-19 is a fever, some concerned folks may be taking their temperatures more often these days. If you feel panic when your thermometer beeps and reads 0.2 degree higher than 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (37 degrees Celsius), you might have the wrong idea, experts have said.Any measurement over 98.6 F may seem concerning, but it's not that simple. There are many personal, environmental and medical factors that influence body temperature and determine whether a person has a fever. The concept of a standard body temperature is generally credited to late German doctor Carl Wunderlich, who, in the mid-1800s, analyzed over 1 million armpit temperatures of about 25,000 patients. From those readings, he came up with the average of 98.6 F and his standard has since prevailed — at least in the minds of many people who aren't doctors. Humans vary in their individual normal temperature ranges. Checking one's temperature by mouth is one of the best ways to do so. "Anecdotally, I would say that there are a lot of people who may not be...

    Dr Taylor Nichols (pictured) shared his experience treating a COVID-19 patient covered in Nazi tattoos in a heart-wrenching Twitter thread on Monday A Jewish doctor in California has revealed how his commitment to saving lives was tested when he was confronted with a COVID-19 patient whose body was plastered with Nazi tattoos.  Dr Taylor Nichols shared his heart-wrenching story in a Twitter thread on Monday that quickly went viral, racking up more than 50,000 retweets.  He was working in the emergency room of Mercy San Juan Hospital in Sacramento in mid-November when an older man arrived by ambulance. 'He was clearly working hard to breathe. He looked sick. Uncomfortable. Scared,' Nichols wrote.   The doctor and his team - a black nurse and Asian American respiratory therapist - moved the man onto a gurney and went to put him in a hospital gown when they discovered the tapestry of Nazi symbols inked into his skin.  'The swastika stood out boldly on his chest. SS tattoos and other insignia that had previously been covered by his shirt were now obvious to...
    Warner Bros. Jude Law revealed that while shooting the 2011 thriller Contagion, scientists involved in the production warned the cast and crew that a similar real-life pandemic was inevitable. In a new video for GQ, Law discussed some of his most iconic characters, including the conspiracy theorist he played in Contagion, which centers on a deadly virus wiping out humanity. “There was absolutely the sense that this was going to happen,” Law said. “The great scientists on set with us who had worked with Scott [Z. Burns] the writer and [director] Steven [Soderbergh] were very learned and experienced individuals who knew what to expect. They all said to us that this was going to happen — and it was a case of when rather than if.” Law continued, “The way they described it, which is exactly as it has happened, just made sense. They painted out all the obvious areas and reasons why it would spread so quickly. What’s scary is you learn on a set like that because you’re being advised by experts, but it doesn’t necessarily sit.” The actor went...
    About 4.6 billion years ago, a giant cloud of dust and gas known as the solar nebula it collapsed in on itself and began to form what would eventually become the Sun and the planets of our solar system. The Sun, our star, is the center of our solar system, whose gravitational pull is so powerful that it keeps numerous planets, dwarf planets (like Pluto), comets and meteorites orbiting around it. Not surprisingly, it is the largest object in our solar system, representing 99.8% of the mass of the solar system. Our sun is a G2V-type dwarf that is in the main sequence phase, the main phase of its evolution. This giant and violent fireball powered by nuclear reactions provides the energy that sustains life on Earth. This life-giving yellow dwarf is composed of gas: about 91% hydrogen and 8.9% helium, according to NASA. Compared to other stars, the size of the sun is relatively small and it is only one of hundreds of billions of stars that we can find in our galaxy, the Milky...
    (CNN)President Donald Trump should stop hyperventilating about voter fraud and draft a gracious concession speech just as Richard Nixon did when he narrowly lost the 1960 presidential election to John F. Kennedy. The goodwill generated by such a gesture will be sorely needed if Trump embarks on his next possible scheme, obtaining pardons for his friends, family and, most importantly, for himself. If he fails in this task, his future water view could be from a cell on Rikers Island rather than his Mar-a-Lago estate.A presidential pardon is a kind of legal magic wand capable of providing complete immunity from all past and present federal crimes charged and even uncharged, depending upon the wording of the pardon. A full pardon essentially forgives a crime and eliminates all of the punishments, penalties and disabilities that flow from it. It does not provide immunity or forgiveness for future crimes. All 50 states have varying pardon procedures in their own laws. Paul CallanIn recent New York court filings, prosecutors from the Office of New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance and the Office...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS)- Eagles fans are known for their passion. It’s a staple of life as a Philadelphia fan and in most years, it goes unrewarded. But, in 2018, the fan base finally enjoyed a happy ending with the team delivering a win in Super Bowl LII over the New England Patriots. A new documentary released tomorrow follows four Eagles superfans during the course of that season, chronicling the highs and lows leading up to the franchise’s first Super Bowl win. Maybe Next Year, directed by Lehigh Valley native and Eagles fan Kyle Thrash, follows Eagles fans Shirley a.k.a “Eagles Shirley”, Bryant, Barry and Jesse and the intersection between their Eagles fandom and personal lives during the course of the 2017-18 season. For Thrash, the project started as a way to capture the passion and emotional relationship that fans have with the team. In these four fans, Thrash wanted to represent different aspects of Eagles fandom, running the gamut from endlessly optimistic to always negative. “I think we obviously are stigmatized group of people so I tried to show where a...
    Joseph Robinette Biden is the president-elect. We know the will of the people, and, although it was a gut-wrenching week, the final tally is not all that close. In the popular vote, Biden, with the most votes of any candidate in history, leads Donald Trump by close to 3 million votes, a number that will grow as more of always slow-moving California gets toted up. And in terms of electoral votes, it looks like the number might be 306—maybe less, if Arizona doesn’t hold, maybe more, if somehow North Carolina goes the way of Georgia once they start counting absentees. But the point is, it won’t be a mere 270 or 271. Whatever the number ends up at, the people have spoken. Yes, a lot of states were close. But a lot of states were close in 2016, too; besides which, Donald Trump lost the popular vote by 2.8 million. But he never allowed for an instant that his victory was anything less than legitimate. And under the rules, that was his right. Even I grudgingly acknowledged it at the...
    Maybe you don't like politics with your beer. Or maybe you think small businesses should stay above the ideological fray so that they don't alienate one group of potential customers while catering to another. It's an understandable take, but one that really isn't possible anymore in a country that is now truly divided. Even the simplest choices — such as what organization to donate money to or whether or not to support the Black Lives Matter movement or enforce mask rules — can have repercussions. So, with that "damned if you do, damned if you don't" environment as the background, a few breweries are putting politics on tap. Others are simply encouraging people to vote, including Arvada's Luki Brewery, which is offering people the chance to vote on the style characteristics for its yet-to-be-brewed Democracy IPA, which will be released on November 3 — election day. (Hurry, though, because voting on the beer ends tomorrow, October 14). "We are...days away from the very last chance to raise your hand and add your voice to the collective opinion of where we as...
    West Wing star Bradley Whitford smeared President Donald Trump after he tested positive for the coronavirus, arguing that people may start to take the disease seriously now that a “white nationalist has it.” While many of Trump’s political opponents sent well wishes, Whitford turned President Trump’s positive coronavirus test into a hackneyed political attack. “Whole bunch of our most vulnerable citizens, disproportionately communities of color, have been dying of this disease,” the Get Out actor said. “Now that a While Nationalist has it, maybe we’ll take it seriously.” Whole bunch of our most vulnerable citizens, disproportionately communities of color, have been dying of this disease. Now that a While Nationalist has it, maybe we’ll take it seriously. — Bradley Whitford (@BradleyWhitford) October 2, 2020 Whitford also sent wishes for his recovery, before slamming Trump’s “lethal incompetence.” “People I know have died. People I love are sick. I’m sorry you’re sick too, @realDonaldTrump,” the actor wrote. “But shame on you for your ignorance and your lethal incompetence that has led to so many unnecessary deaths that you will never acknowledge, let alone take responsibility for.

    Friends, let us all take a brief pause today for a moment of reflection and gratitude. Yes, things are terrible in about a thousand different ways right now—and yes, for those of us in the U.S., things will likely only get worse in the months to come ahead of the election, yada yada despair and doom. But thanks to our Lord and Savior Vin Diesel, this Friday afternoon brings a little ray of light. Vin Diesel has already given us so much: the Fast & Furious franchise, the voice of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, and living proof that, yes, being bald can be super hot. But now he has given us the greatest gift of all—the gift of song. A song by him, Vin Diesel. A song that’s titled “Feel Like I Do” and also... might actually be a bop? No, seriously. Listen to this! Get a load of those deliciously mumbly, warbly vocals! Of that beat that invites even the most inept dancers to sway along on a rooftop while holding red Solo cups. Of those...
    Luis Robayo/Getty Images Reuters is carrying an “exclusive” report on an unverified study that “suggests dengue may provide some immunity against COVID-19” which touts the potential that the mosquito-borne infection may be tied to combating the coronavirus. What could go wrong? In an environment in which President Donald Trump has previously hyped premature remedies to the coronavirus as varied as hydroxychloroquine and injections of household disinfectants, Reuters’ headline — Exclusive: Study suggests dengue may provide some immunity against COVID-19 — might be a bit of an oversell given the study’s fine print and the penchant of some to seize on any shred of hope for an easy way out of the pandemic. For example, the study has not been published or peer-reviewed, and was “shared exclusively with Reuters.” And as the headline suggests, the study merely suggests the possibility of a potential link to past exposure to dengue fever and a possible immune response of some sort to coronavirus by correlating geographic areas with past dengue outbreaks with those that have had slower coronavirus spread. Places with lower coronavirus infection...
