    "She started getting confrontational with patients in the lobby," he explained, "saying some rude stuff and being very mean." Of the firing, Martinez said, "I was heartbroken. I would have been there six years in January." TikTok user Grant Kinsey, a witness to the melee who shared the video, published a video update of his own, corroborating Martinez's description of the woman's behavior. In the video, Kinsey said, "All of a sudden, I'm sitting there on my phone and this woman just comes back — I think she went out to have a smoke, the woman in the pink — and she walks by the girl sitting down, and then turns around — the girl didn't say anything. She was talking to, I think, the girl next to her. ... And then the girl in pink just starts getting up in her face over nothing. Literally nothing. And just yelling, and screaming. It was just so intense for no reason. The girl sitting down was being really calm. She obviously didn't know her. She obviously,...
    Protesters from across the U.S. converged in front of the White House Sunday night in an effort to get the Biden administration to take a firmer stance in its effort to support anti-government demonstrators in Cuba.  The Biden administration has announced its support of the protesters and has also leveled sanctions. The Miami Herald reported that even the protesters had different expectations of what the word "more" actually meant. Some went as far as suggesting a military intervention.  "We went into Kuwait, Somalia and didn’t ask for anyone’s permission," Maria Fundora, the head of a Texas-based group called Cuba Libre, told the paper. "We went in and killed Usama Bin Laden and didn’t ask anyone. Are you telling me someone from Cuba needs to do something as horrible as 9/11 to get the U.S. to do something?"

    WEST NEW YORK, New Jersey (WABC) -- After several days of solidarity marches in North Jersey's communities with Cuban ties, Sunday was a time for prayer."This event was very powerful because truly it was not for us. It was not for the people in this church. We are in freedom, we live in freedom. This is for the people in Cuba. We want them to know that they will never walk alone," said Newark Auxiliary Bishop Manuel Cruz.Cruz was born in Cuba and led the emotional bilingual service with some of the leaders of the Archdiocese at St. Joseph of the Palisades.Together they prayed for the same things those taking to the streets have been demanding - an end to imprisonment and violent oppression of those protesting the Cuban government's handling of shortages of basics like food, medicine, and COVID vaccines, and its handling of pandemic and resulting economic crisis."It's not only an unjust system, but it's a boycott of six decades that is felt most keenly by the poorest of the poor," said Cardinal Joseph Tobin."It breaks our hearts....
    As if the pain of losing her 20-year-old son Adrian to a shooting in Lowell, Massachusetts last September wasn't enough, Heidi Kimborowicz is feeling the wound reopened with a Dracut High School yearbook post from two students that reads "Free Mello." "I felt numb because I couldn't believe the school would allow something like that to pass through," Kimborowicz told CBS Boston. Dracut is a town in the far northeast corner of Massachusetts, by its border with New Hampshire. "Mello" is the nickname of 18-year-old Christian Lemay, a friend of Adrian's and the teen charged with his shooting. He's now under house arrest, charged with armed assault with intent to murder and awaiting a court date next month. Heidi Kimborowicz is demanding that the yearbook be reprinted. "Saying 'Free Mello' is saying they want him free from doing something. He's accused of killing my son and that's not OK," she said.

    Anya Taylor-Joy swept in 2020 with the feature film Emma and the series Gambito de dama, works that have earned her nominations for the Golden Globes. Despite the fact that with the Netflix production the interpreter competes in the category of miniseries, the star has left the door open to a second season of fiction. “It’s surreal and wonderful that people want a second season,” Taylor-Joy said recently in an interview with Deadline. “We never thought about it, there was no discussion about it. That said, never say never in Hollywood, ”he added. “It would be very interesting to see what Beth would be like as a mother, now that she is sober and more aware of the demons that haunt her,” she said. Netflix announced in late November that 62 million subscribers watched Lady’s Gambit in the first 28 days since its launch. According to Taylor-Joy, the perspective the series offers is one of the strengths responsible for its success. “There is something to be said for a character whose greatest enemy is herself. Now we are all at...
    Former GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA) pushed back on the idea that Donald Trump represented the future of her party, calling out both his age and the erosion of his intra-party support in the wake of his role fomenting the Capitol insurrection. Speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday night, the two-term Congresswoman made the case for moving on from the former president, who she said deserved conviction on the lone impeachment charge of inciting the insurrection. She also condemned other pro-Trump acolytes like the formerly QAnon-supporting Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. “What I focus on is, at the beginning of this week, the Freedom Caucus claimed they had 115 signatures to get rid of [House GOP Conference Chair] Liz Cheney,” Comstock noted. “In fact, she won resoundingly in a landslide with 70% support. I think the brave Republicans like Liz Cheney, like [Nebraska Sen.] Ben Sasse, like [Rep.] Adam Kinzinger standing up to the bullies, are the future of the party. I think of those 10 people who voted for impeachment you’re going to see future governors, future leaders of the party, people like Ben Sasse....
    Rachel Maddow was openly skeptical of the Biden administration’s hopes that Republicans will work with Senate Democrats to pass the president’s agenda. And to drive her point home, the MSNBC host explained her pessimism in bipartisanship by pithily saying that 10 GOP senators would not “cross over to proclaim kittens to be soft, let alone to vote on something like immigration reform or Covid relief or infrastructure.” Maddow began the segment on her Thursday night show explaining the budget reconciliation process, which allows Congress to pass budget-related bills once per budget with a simple majority, in a bill that is not subject to a filibuster by the minority. Looking at Biden’s priority agenda items, Maddow identified two issues that could potentially be passed under reconciliation, the Covid-19 relief bill and the “Build It Back Better Plan,” which focuses on jobs and infrastructure. Noting that the Democrats’ Senate majority was not enough to defeat a Republican filibuster, Maddow scoffed at the suggestion that GOP senators would join in voting to pass Democratic bills. “It’s just not going to happen on anything big,” Maddow explained. “Even if they...
    National Review Order of the Brown Nose Britain’s essential fortnightly magazine Private Eye, whose trademark stance of delivering hard news with a witty bipartisan cynicism about politics has no parallel in the U.S., runs a regular feature entitled “O.B.N.” Longtime readers understand this to be the Order of the Brown Nose, an honor given to the most outlandishly, hilariously sycophantic punditry of the moment. If Private Eye were a U.S. publication, its O.B.N. feature would have to be expanded to sprawl across several pages as it considers the media’s bulk delivery of valentines to the incoming administration. Step forward, Eddie Glaude of MSNBC, who on Tuesday night compared Joe Biden to the Lord and said his ascension would comfort the dead: “President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President Harris pulled the grief and regret out of the privacy of our hearts,” he said. “I’m reminded of the Psalmist, you know? ‘He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.’ Maybe the dead will speak to us now. Maybe they can rest now.” Close competition came from CNN’s David Chalian: “I mean,...
    University of Connecticut officials have discussed creating helmet stickers, warm-up T-shirts and altering athletic uniforms in other ways to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement. The school last month committed to joining others in the Big East conference in adding BLM patches to basketball jerseys.

    By PAT EATON-ROBB STORRS, Conn. (AP) — University of Connecticut officials have discussed creating helmet stickers, warm-up T-shirts and altering athletic uniforms in other ways to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

    The 49ers on Wednesday announced the nine recipients who will share the $1 million social justice grant the team committed to following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police in May. The 49ers’ two-month process of selecting which nonprofit organizations that create societal change to financially support involved team ownership, the front office and players. The nine groups chosen were ultimately determined by the 49ers Players Social Justice Council. “More than ever, actionable items and plans are of vital importance, so we are honored to support these nonprofits who are doing grass roots work in these crucial spaces,” 49ers CEO Jed York said. The players group, led by defensive lineman Arik Armstead, included offensive linemen Laken Tomlinson and Ben Garland, defensive linemen Dee Ford and Solomon Thomas, and cornerback Jamar Taylor (who was released last week). Local or national organizations that focused on either racial equality in policing, ending mass incarceration, and economical and educational support for young Black people were eligible. Those groups chosen to receive grant money over the next...
    Civil rights activist Rev Al Sharpton says defunding the New York Police Department is something a 'latte Liberal' in the Hamptons might support but that proper policing on the ground is necessary.  Sharpton made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Tuesday amid a wave of rising crime in New York City and a gun violence filled Labor Day weekend.  He pushed back at recent calls to defund the NYPD and other police departments across the country, saying that policing needed to be re-imagined instead.  'To take all policing off is something I think a latte liberal may go for as they sit around the Hamptons discussing this as some academic problem,' he said.  Al Sharpton made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Tuesday amid a wave of rising crime in New York City and a gun violence filled Labor Day weekend 'People living on the ground need proper policing.  'Yes, we need more resources in different areas like mental health but we do not need our grandmothers (to be) prey to those...
    Donald Trump during his disastrous interview with Jonathan Swan of Axios. Donald Trump's break with reality has put him wildly out of step with most Americans on combatting the rampant spread of coronavirus throughout the country. New NPR/Ipsos polling released Tuesday showed that some 60% of Americans support enacting a national coronavirus plan and 76% back state laws requiring mask-wearing in public at all times.  But Trump, recently confronted with statistics showing the country's death toll on the rise with more than 1,000 Americans dying every day, told Axios reporter Jonathan Swan merely: "It is what it is." Effectively, c'est la vie as the coronavirus runs rampant through the South, the West, and new areas of the Midwest, exacting a heavy loss of human life along the way. Trump's complete and utter failure to comprehend what is actually happening in the country and what he should be doing to meet the moment is mind-boggling. In the Swan interview, we witness Trump shuffling through giant graphs geared toward elementary-aged children that still don't quite compute in his brain. The distinction Swan makes between deaths as a...
    For Princess Beatrice, this was the ultimate ‘something borrowed’. Fashion is so often used to make a statement and this gown, personally loaned by the Queen, sends a huge message of her support to a much-loved granddaughter on her wedding day. The Queen Mary tiara – worn by the Queen when she married Prince Philip in 1947 and loaned to her only daughter Princess Anne on hers – also signifies the warmth of feeling. Queen Elizabeth II arriving at the Odeon in London's Leicester Square for the Lawrence of Arabia film premiere on December 10, 1962 (left). The Queen is wearing the same Peau De Soie taffeta dress by Norman Hartnell that was worn by Beatrice on Friday (right)  Beatrice’s decision to get married in a second-hand gown is interesting and, I must say, pleasantly surprising and touching. A very traditional design, it is beautifully crafted from peau de soie taffeta and features a geometric, chequered bodice encrusted with diamanté. There have been amendments to the original, of course, to allow for Beatrice’s height and the modesty of...
