    New York (CNN Business)Verizon reported earnings that topped forecasts Wednesday morning and issued a more upbeat outlook for 2022. That's some much-needed good news for the company, which has been the Dow's worst-performing stock this year, falling about 10%.Overall, the Dow is up about 16% in 2021, making Verizon's underperformance really stand out. (Biotech Amgen (AMGN), another Dow component, is also down nearly 10% this year.) Even though profits were better than expected and shares rose about 2% Wednesday, Verizon may still find it difficult to excite Wall Street much longer. Sales growth remains sluggish and the company's revenues grew just 4% from a year ago, missing estimates.Verizon (VZ) is stuck in a highly competitive wireless business where companies have to fight for subscribers and often have to resort to low prices to attract users. It doesn't help that many consumers are increasingly content to hold on to older phones for longer periods of time before upgrading — even as Apple (AAPL), Samsung (SSNLF) and others keep churning out new models.Read MoreAs such, Verizon isn't the only telecom that's struggling....
    Next1 of 11Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse We’re ranking every season of the Ultimate Fighter ahead of its return. The Ultimate Fighter is coming back. The point of the famed reality series was to market their top fighters, create new stars, and create moments all to attract the less-dedicated base of fans. Reality TV attracts all sorts of fans and you never know who will be watching the product. Manly men watch Project Runway and people who don’t care about pro wrestling will watch Total Divas. This isn’t new, and the UFC knew this. That’s why each season was always headlined by an entertaining crop of coaches, bitter rivals, or marketable stars. After all, this is a star-driven sport and a star-driven company. So if the company isn’t using putting stars out there, then what’s the point of tuning in? The show has to work, that’s a huge and obvious “duh”. So if the season didn’t produce top talent, then it doesn’t matter how good the fights were, there’s no point in tuning in to see the...
    Some celebrations are better than others. Stephen Dunn/Getty Images Many in the US use Cinco de Mayo as an excuse to guzzle their fave "Mexican" alcoholic beverages. But Mexican people don't really celebrate the day — it's not the Mexican version of Fourth of July. That "Mexican food" Americans eat is hardly authentic, and the sombreros are racist. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. This year, millions of Americans will spill out of their favorite Mexican bars and restaurants after consuming as many margaritas as humanly possible in honor of Cinco de Mayo. But other than using the day as an excuse to guzzle their favorite "Mexican" alcoholic beverages, most people have no idea what they're actually celebrating. In fact, if they knew the real story of Cinco de Mayo — and how little Mexican people actually celebrate it — they might think twice before taking that shot. Keep reading to find out how May 5 became synonymous with tacos and tequila and why it's just plain annoying in the US.Cinco de Mayo is not a Mexican...
    One of the worst things you can say about a relationship is "it's complicated." At best, it projects a sense of futility about anything changing. At worst, it’s a disregard for your own self-worth. If your partner literally kills and dismembers someone in your protection—and now everyone knows it for a fact— it says a lot (of the wrong things) when your response is still to shrug and say “it’s complicated.” Yet that is the latest response from the United States in its longstanding, toxic relationship with Saudi Arabia. This affair has involved decades of arms sales, a co-dependence on fossil fuels, and covering up for the cruelties of the Saudi royal family, all in the name of dubious shared regional objectives. Under the past president, the relationship reached new depths: mutual orb touching, group sword dancing, and having each others’ numbers on speed dial. Trump was so proud of this alliance that he openly bragged about saving the Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman’s ass from Congress.

    The three-year-old girl allegedly beaten to death by Worst Cooks in America winner Ariel Robinson could have been saved if social workers had properly monitored her 'evil' adoptive parents, the girl's biological family has told DailyMail.com. Food Network star Robinson, 29, and her 34-year-old husband Jerry are both charged with homicide by child abuse after their adopted daughter Victoria Rose Smith was found unresponsive and covered in blunt force injuries at their Simpsonville, South Carolina home. The 'woke' couple attacked white privilege and boasted on social media of their commitment to tackling racism after taking in white Victoria and her two brothers, aged five and seven, to raise alongside their own two black sons. However Victoria's heartbroken relatives have told DailyMail.com that scrutinizing the sweet youngster's January 14 death along racial lines will not do anything to prevent another tragedy. They say the blame lies squarely with the South Carolina Department of Social Services (SCDSS) who were too quick to seize her from biological mom Casie Phares and didn't do enough to ensure she was going to a safe home. ...
    Trump supporters threatened state capitols but failed to show on Inauguration Day Why Precious Doses of COVID-19 Vaccine Keep Getting Dumped The ‘worst rule in football’ isn’t wrong at all Sometimes it’s OK to admit when you’re wrong.  For years, I’ve hated the infamous fumble-through-the-end-zone, lose-the-ball play. I’ve called it the worst rule in football, because man, it sure seems terrible. You get that close to the end zone, you make one mistake and you lose everything? That ain’t right!  So when Cleveland’s Rashard Higgins reached out toward the pylon in last weekend’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, only to fumble away the ball, possession, and a good chunk of Cleveland’s hopes, I was the living version of that Leo DiCaprio-pointing-at-the-TV gif, all full of righteous rage. And I wasn’t alone.  Only this time, I didn’t take a flamethrower to my house. I did what we probably all should do in these situations: I consulted some NFL rules experts. And what I found was that the ‘worst rule in football’ … isn’t so bad after all.The very short...
    It’s going to be a blue Christmas — below the belt. For those hoping to have their … erm, halls decked and trimmings hung for the holidays, don’t count on it until the clock strikes 2021, according to a nutcracking new study on female sexual behavior. It may come as no surprise to some, but the survey of more than 500,000 women has confirmed that the stress of Christmas — on the wallet and the waistline — may leave your mate saying “mistle-NO!” in the bedroom. Their findings, based on self-reported data via international women’s health app Clue, settles long-held theories around seasonal spikes and slumps in sexy times, showing that while most holidays result in more erotic activity among women, there is a steep dirty-deed dropoff in the three days leading up to December 25. Alas, the one gift you’re unlikely to find under the Christmas tree: good sex. The stress-inducing lack of leisure time — between holiday shopping, cooking and stuffing faces — would explain the stymie in the sheets, according to Dr. Kate Boyer,...

Some handled it better than others.  Here, the most “meh” pandemic renditions on the small screen this year. “Grey’s Anatomy” (ABC) The long-running medical drama has dug into coronavirus, giving it to lead Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo).

It’s been shocking and emotional to see them back on the show — but dream sequences with...
    Bad news, Californians, but 2020’s fire season may not be an aberration. In fact, we’re probably facing years of increasing fire, smoke, death and destruction both in rural towns and suburban foothills unless we and the rest of the country get on the same page on how to deal with this threat. At least that’s how Tom Harbour, retired fire chief of the U.S. Forest Service, sees it. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Harbour, who led the agency’s fire response for 11 years and spent 46 years in firefighting, gave his thoughts on how California and the West have arrived on this fire-filled path and the difficult choices that would have to be made to leave it. “The broad confluence of factors that you got there in California — the Meditteranean climate, the [dead trees] in the Sierra and then over 2 million properties at risk — shouldn’t be a surprise,” Harbour said. “It’s trite to say ... this isn’t the worst of it.” California How bad is all that wildfire smoke to our...
    Sure, when Donald Trump first invaded the White House, people thought it was a big deal that he was strong-arming the Park Service to falsify the numbers for his pitifully attended inauguration. And it’s kind of hilarious that, nearly four years later, Trump is still claiming to have “massive numbers of cheering people” at events where a bare handful bothered to show up. But we’ve long since passed the days when whatever nonsense Sean Spicer was peddling to the press room was the worst thing going on in America. With Trump currently engaged in an effort to subvert the election by means of destroying the Postal Service, it’s easy to forget that even this might not even be at the top of the charts for ways in which Donald Trump is currently wrecking the nation. It’s not just that Trump is the world’s premiere practitioner of the Gish gallop, but with the passing months the scale of his actions has grown from ludicrous to genuinely monstrous. With that in mind, here’s a short list of things that Trump is doing, right now, that can’t...
    Conservatives often extol the tough, no-nonsense approach taken by leaders of corporate interests as a way to run government more efficiently. But do businessmen really have any business being president? Theologian and philosopher Reinhold Niebuhr, in his essay “Perils of American Power,” published in The Atlantic Magazine in 1932, wrote of the uneasy combination in the United States of economic strength and political incompetence. We may be a preeminent world power because of our economic strength, he argued, but we are “politically the most ignorant of modern nations.” Does anyone think that were he to see our politics today, Niebuhr’s assessment of nearly a century ago would be materially different? No doubt he would note the stark divisiveness in today’s politics, but is that not just another sign of our political ignorance? The problem, according to Niebuhr, resided in our easy reliance on military might, which worked to keep us from actually having to deal with the necessities of political thinking, of comprehending the world in which we live and finding a way to give as well as take. Even domestically, one...
    When trying to lose weight, many people cut out bread in the hope ditching the starchy carbohydrate will help them shed a few pounds. But according to a fitness expert and personal trainer, there's no need to stop eating toast while on a diet. Graeme Tomlinson, 31, from Aberdeen, aka The Fitness Chef, has claimed bread isn't actually the culprit for making you fat - but what you put on it is.  In an Instagram post shared with his 690,000 followers, the health and fitness guru wrote: 'When trying to reduce or maintain body weight, many continue to assume that bread must be abolished from their diet. ⁣  Graeme Tomlinson, 31, from Aberdeen, aka The Fitness Chef, has claimed that bread doesn't make you fat. Writing on Instagram to his 690,000 followers, the health and fitness guru explained toast is only 95 calories - but that skyrockets to nearly six times the amount when avocado and bacon is added 'In terms of energy, there is no difference between white or brown bread.  'And whilst the latter contains more fibre [which may increase...
