    Concerns have been sparked by a new COVID-19 variant known as Omicron. A confirmed COVID-19 case caused by that variant was detected in a person in California who had recently been to South Africa, according to the CDC. That person "had mild symptoms that are improving," the CDC noted. A Minnesota resident who had attended a convention in New York City contracted COVID-19 caused by the Omicron variant but has recovered, the CDC has also reported.

    The Toronto Blue Jays have gone all-in with a front-line pitcher in free agency, signing Kevin Gausman to a massive deal. The Blue Jays knew they could lose Robbie Ray in free agency this offseason. They’ve just completed the move to make sure his absence won’t hit them too hard. On Sunday night, Toronto completed a deal to bring in Kevin Gausman on a deal worth more than $100 million. Blue Jays have Robbie Ray replacement in Kevin GausmanJeff Passan first reported the news of the five-year, $110 million deal. BREAKING: Right-hander Kevin Gausman and the Toronto Blue Jays are in agreement on a five-year, $110 million contract, sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) November 29, 2021 The Blue Jays were always going to have a bit of a choice between fighting to keep Ray and bringing in someone like Gausman. It’s possible they’ve made their pick there. But Gausman isn’t the only new face they’ve added. They’ve also beefed up their bullpen by adding Yimi Garcia out of Houston. Those moves won’t stop...
    Donald Trump's disgraced ex-fixer says he's convinced the former president won't run for the White House again - and that he's only teasing a second stint in office to keep donor cash flowing in.    Cohen, speaking to Meet the Press on Sunday, said that Trump will not run and merely hold on for as long as possible to collect money from donors and 'keep the grift going.' The former lawyer turned Trump critic - who spent prison time for tax evasion and campaign finance violations - said that Trump is running the greatest grift in American history.     'Donald Trump has made it very clear, right, that he is grifting off of the American people, these supporters, these individuals that are just sending money to him at record levels,' Cohen told host Chuck Todd. 'It's really amazing that people don't see exactly what the guy is doing,' he added. In August, Trump was revealed to have raised more than $100 million from donors since leaving office, with that war chest likely to have swollen substantially since then.  President Trump's former lawyer Michael...
    As we all know by now, there has been a dramatic spike in people behaving really badly on airplanes. Despite the FAA adopting a policy of zero tolerance for disruptive behavior, the airlines have submitted over 5,000 reports of unruly passengers. Out of that total, the FAA has referred at least 37 for possible criminal prosecution. As people take to the air for the year-end holidays, Sara Nelson, the international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, reached out to CNN to give passengers some tips on what to do whenever they see potential signs of trouble on board. Nelson, a United Airlines attendant, told CNN that the number of unruly passenger reports is the most since the FAA started keeping track in 1990—and that’s with over a month still left in 2021. She believes that a lot of people who haven’t flown in a year have forgotten about the myriad rules in place to keep us all safe—particularly the requirement to wear a mask in the airport and on the plane, which is in place until at least Jan. 18.

    When we first assessed the Pac-12 coaching landscape, in early November, there were two openings. Now, there are three. Soon, there could be four … or five … or maybe more. For the level of tumult does not depend solely on victory and defeat on each particular campus. External forces will impact the situation: The vacancies elsewhere; the supply of quality candidates for Pac-12 schools; the timing of bowl games and playoff dates for potential interviewees. Our initial deep dive focused on the Pac-12 jobs we considered most likely to open. This version is more comprehensive. It examines the Hot Seat situation everywhere. Listed from most likely to least likely to experience a vacancy (and alphabetically with ties). *** USCCoach: Donte Williams (interim)State of play: Poor, and deteriorating. The Trojans just gave up 62 points to UCLA and must win both remaining games to qualify for a bowl berth.

    MIAMI (CBS4) – It was a cool start to Tuesday, but not quite as chilly as Monday, with lows dipping into the low 60s and upper 50s. It will be slightly warmer in the afternoon with highs climbing to around 80 degrees with plenty of sunshine. The breeze will build out of the northeast 10 to 15 miles per hour with higher gusts.

    The Jimmy Lake era, which spanned 713 days, one pandemic, a division title, an on-field incident, an infinite number of three-and-outs, a suspension and so many baffling decisions, is over. At some point in the next six weeks, Washington will hire the 30th head coach in program history. Let’s dig into various aspects of the process and examine a list of names that make sense for UW to pursue. *** The pressure During a news conference Sunday evening, athletic director Jen Cohen took responsibility for hiring Lake in Dec. 2019, following Chris Petersen’s abrupt exit. In truth, Cohen had little choice. At the time, Lake was extremely popular internally and highly coveted externally as either a defensive coordinator or up-and-coming head coach. He had reportedly turned down overtures from numerous schools, including Alabama. He churned out NFL-caliber defensive backs like nobody else, and he owned Washington State. Had the Huskies brushed Lake aside and conducted a national search, the repercussions inside the lockerroom, on campus and in Seattle would have been thunderous, particularly — and justifiably — within the Black...
    (CNN)Finding jurors to sit in the trial for the three men charged in Ahmaud Arbery's killing is proving difficult in the Glynn County, Georgia, courtroom where jury selection began this week.Hundreds of people have been summoned, and from the 60 people who have been questioned since last Monday, many said they have already formed strong opinions about the case, know the defendants or are scared to sit. They point to potential consequences specific verdicts may have on the community. One prospective juror said that while she doesn't know much about the case itself, she has seen Facebook headlines and "I run with Ahmaud" bumper stickers across town. She expressed concern about how polarizing the case has been among the community.Ahmaud Arberys father says he is praying for the right jury as selection continues"I think it would be naive to think there couldn't be real world repercussions," the woman said, adding she wouldn't let fear stop her from trying to weigh the case fairly. Those picked will be tasked with deciding whether Gregory McMichael, his son Travis McMichael and their neighbor,...
    The trial this week of Kyle Rittenhouse, charged with homicide for the killing of two unarmed men during the unrest after police shot Jacob Blake in the back, is arguably one of the most polarizing the country has seen in recent times. Many on the left see Rittenhouse as a killer, many on the right see him as a "patriot" who was engaged in self defense. Judge Bruce Schroeder will decide Rittenhouse's fate – and if he's a killer or a self-defending patriot. Schroeder's behavior has been the subject of a good deal of outrage as he – on live TV – repeatedly berated the prosecutor Wednesday. Some legal experts indicate his anger at the state's attorney might be justified, but at the very least most seem to agree it should not have been done in public. Wednesday afternoon many were stunned when Judge Schroeder's phone went off in the middle of the trial.

    RALF Rangnick has become the front-runner to take over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United. The beleaguered Norwegian boss was spotted at Manchester Airport on Monday boarding a private jet with his family for a short break ahead of the international break. 9Ralf Rangnick is reportedly being eyed by Manchester UnitedCredit: AFP 9Rangnick has been a big influence on the career of Jurgen KloppCredit: Rex And now Rangnick, 63, a true visionary of the game, has been linked with the Old Trafford hotseat, after the Red Devils were humbled at home by their noisy neighbours Manchester City. The German super-coach comes with a hefty reputation in his homeland. He is said to have inspired Premier League bosses Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel and Julian Nagelsman with his tactics. Nicknamed 'The Professor', he was one of the pioneers of Gegenpressing, a style of play where teams immediately press the opposition after losing possession of the ball. His influence has been felt in the modern game, with many teams adopting his philosophy. STARTING YOUNG Incredibly, Rangnick began his coaching career when he...
    Four years ago, the Pac-12’s coaching carousel spun at a rate rarely seen in conference history. Five teams changed head coaches, a vertiginous stretch that began with Gary Andersen quitting on Oregon State in October and ended with Kevin Sumlin taking the Arizona job in January. This year could make the 2017 cycle look like amateur hour. It’s not difficult to envision five coaching vacancies, and we can get to six or seven without much stretching of the imagination. Here’s our view of the landscape, from the perspective of maximum tumult: Vacancy No. 1Team: USCCoach: VacantSeat heat: N/AWhat happened: The Trojans fired Clay Helton on Sept. 13, following a blowout home loss to Stanford, because expectations for the program “would not be met without a change in leadership,” according to athletic director Mike Bohn.What’s next: A quiet search is ongoing, with USC expected to make a hire in the first half of December. In our view, Cincinnati’s Luke Fickell (hired by Bohn at UC) and Baylor’s Dave Aranda (from Southern California) are two names to monitor. Others will surface as...
    Getty Bill Belichick One question is if Bill Belichick would risk bringing in such a big personality or impact player during the season. A reporter asked Belichick the question on Friday, November 5, and the legendary coach didn’t sound too afraid of making a splash. In fact, he made reference to specific instances when he’s made similar moves. ALL the latest Patriots news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Patriots newsletter here! Join Heavy on Patriots! Odell Beckham Jr. Could Transform the Patriots’ Passing Game? If the Patriots’ offense is missing something, it’s a pass-catcher capable of commanding double team and/or racking up yards in run-after-the-catch situations. Beckham Jr. can be that kind of guy for New England. There may be some trepidation about his potential impact on the overall chemistry, but New England could simply release him if there are any distractions. Considering Beckham is 30 years old and years into his career, you’d like to think he’s very aware of his football mortality. Translation: this might be one of his last...
    An act like this is unspeakable: 2 Iowa teens charged with killing high school Spanish teacher House Dems throw new curveball: Infrastructure vote, wait on party-line megabill Former three-time NBA All-Star Deron Williams is set to fight on the undercard of Dec. 18’s fight between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury.  And another former professional sports star, Frank Gore, could be his opponent.  MORE: Could Deron Williams fight Frank Gore? Former NBA All-Star linked to running back on Jake Paul card  Gore, who was named a five-time Pro Bowl selection during his 16-year NFL career, might be set to face Williams, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. Gore reportedly turned down NFL offers to train for boxing, and his eyes have been fully set on the sport since at least August.  "I just fell in love with how hard it is," Gore said. "I felt like, 'Man, I couldn't fight.' And I always like a challenge. So I kept doing it and doing it and I saw myself getting better and better." Gore is not the first former football star...
    In this article FIXXThe Merck logo is seen at a gate to the Merck & Co campus in Rahway, New Jersey, U.S., July 12, 2018.Brendan McDermid | ReutersLONDON — An antiviral pill found to be effective at treating Covid-19 has been approved by Britain's medicines regulator Thursday in a potentially game-changing way of treating the virus. Britain's medicines regulator said it had approved the world's first antiviral oral pill, known as molnupiravir, having found it to be "safe and effective at reducing the risk of hospitalisation and death in people with mild to moderate Covid-19 who are at increased risk of developing severe disease." The U.K.'s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said the decision "follows a rigorous review of its safety, quality and effectiveness" and made it the "first oral antiviral for the treatment of Covid-19 to be approved." Developed jointly by Ridgeback Biotherapeutics and Merck Sharp & Dohme, the pill works by interfering with the virus’ replication. This prevents it from multiplying, keeping virus levels low in the body and therefore reducing the severity of the disease,...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ripped President Biden over reports that the administration is considering paying $450,000 to illegal immigrants who were separated from their families at the border under the Trump administration, calling the move a "slap in the face to every hard-working American." The Sunshine State governor said he was "very, very concerned" regarding reports of the potential payments as Americans struggle with rising energy and grocery costs. REPUBLICANS DEMAND ANSWERS FROM BIDEN CABINET ON REPORTED PAYMENTS TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS: ‘HORRIFIC DECISION’ "You’ve had all kinds of really bad policies throughout our country that has limited freedom," DeSantis said. "And you're going to turn around for that and you’re going to do $475,000 for an individual that came illegally to this country?" "I’ve seen a lot in my day — I’ve seen a lot that’s happened over the last nine or ten months that I didn’t think I’d ever see — but this takes the cake," the governor continued. "If that is done, that is going to be a slap in the face to every American who works hard...

    A Gossip Girl star, plus more celebs with milestone birthdays in November 2021 Barclays CEO Jes Staley to step down after Epstein probe Astros catcher Martin Maldonado helped keep Houston's season alive on Sunday with some unexpected prowess at the plate. ATLANTA - You would have to go back to 1937 and Margaret Mitchell to find the last time anybody in Georgia authored a story this perfect. On a majestic home run by Freddie Freeman, in his 14th and possibly final year in the Braves organization, Atlanta took a 5-4 lead into the fifth inning as uber-reliever A.J. Minter started the front leg of a bullpen relay race that would bring the Braves to their first World Series title in 26 years. But this was Halloween night. And there was a knock on the door. It was Martin Maldonado, who came disguised as a Little Leaguer. The Braves did not become World Series champions with a win in Game 5 Sunday. Their date with destiny was not so much gone with the wind as it was gone...
    DENVER (CBS4) – Hall of Fame quarterback and Denver resident Peyton Manning says the potential sale of the Denver Broncos “isn’t on his radar.” Last month CBS Sports reported that league sources indicated the new Broncos Ring of Famer was among those following the developments with the team, and that he has spoken to at least two potential suitors about a possible leadership role with new owners if the team is in fact sold.

Are you going to try to own the team?'” The former Denver Broncos quarterback said he hasn’t formed any relationships “with anybody.” “Even if I am offered an opportunity, I haven’t decided whether I would even do it,”...
    BOSTON (CBS) – Jennifer Nassour, the former Mass GOP chair, said it would be the “end of the Republican party in Massachusetts” if Geoff Diehl defeats Gov. Charlie Baker in a potential primary election. Nassour joined WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller to discuss the state of the Republican party in Massachusetts and other topics. Nassour was critical of current Mass GOP chair Jim Lyons. “You are all one family and you support your family. You see that over and over again with the Democratic party in Massachusetts. Even though they might battle it out and fight, they do support their own,” she said. “Currently, the Lyons Mass GOP is not doing that, is not supporting all of our candidates. There is no reason to fight with the most popular governor in the country.” Baker has not yet announced if he plans to run for another term. Keller @ Large: Part 2
    20 songs that should have won a Grammy Houses in These Cities Are Suddenly Major Bargains During an open workout in Abu Dhabi earlier in the week, Petr Yan approached his coach, who had dropped to one knee. Suddenly, Yan leapt into the air and the coach went tumbling over backward. It was meant as a joke, a play on the reason why Yan won’t walk to the cage with the belt around his waist on Saturday in Etihad Arena, when he faces Cory Sandhagen for the interim bantamweight championship in the co-main event of UFC 267. In Yan’s last fight, in March in Las Vegas against Aljamain Sterling, he was on his way to a one-sided victory when he committed what might well be the most egregious, flagrant and perplexing foul in the history of the UFC. Sterling was clearly down when Yan kneed him in the head. When a doctor determined Sterling could not continue, Yan was disqualified and Sterling lifted the belt from him. They were supposed to rematch on Saturday for Sterling’s belt, but Sterling...
    (CNN)It's been nearly two weeks since jury selection began in the trial of the three men charged with killing Ahmaud Arbery, and of the thousand people summoned for jury duty, less than half have turned up. Of the first batch of 600 people summoned when jury selection began on October 18, only 283 actually came, according to Ron Adams, the Clerk of Superior Court for Glynn County. Another 400 were summoned on Monday, but only about half that number appeared in person. No official reason has been given for the low turnout.The attorneys and the judge are trying to narrow down the number of potential jurors to a group of 64 before selecting the final 12 jurors and four alternates.

    Chicago Bears players spoke to the media over Zoom on Tuesday as the team enacted stricter COVID-19 protocols to prevent its current outbreak from getting bigger. After coach Matt Nagy announced he tested positive for the virus Monday, the Bears are wearing masks around Halas Hall and conducting meetings virtually, left tackle Jason Peters said. As the players try to regroup from a 38-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, here are three things we heard on the call. 1. Eddie Jackson thought Lance Briggs was calling his effort into question last week — but admits he needs to wrap up better. Jackson drew attention last week when he retweeted a 10-year-old post from Pro Football Focus talking about former Bears linebacker Briggs’ missed tackles. Jackson’s tweet, which he later deleted, was in response to Briggs’ comments on NBC Sports Chicago criticizing his missed tackle in Week 6 against Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams. Jackson tried to knock Adams out of bounds, but Adams stayed up and gained another 8 yards on the 41-yard...
    Hunter Walker of Rolling Stone interviewed two anonymous Republican activists who helped organize the January 6 rally at the Ellipse where President Trump ordered his supporters to "take back their country" just before the mob assaulted the Capitol. Legislators had gathered there to certify Joe Biden's victory. Trump was impeached largely based on the statements he made at that rally. These two anonymous sources, identified as "an organizer" and "a planner," say they are in contact with the House Select Committee investigating the insurrection and both expect to be called to testify. MAGAland is a hive of deceit and vainglory, so proceed with caution. The Rolling Stone piece has gotten a lot of attention based on Planner and Organizer's vague assertion that various extremist Republican members of Congress were involved in planning the rally on the Ellipse in some capacity. Some, like Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, spoke at the rally, which implies at least some level of cooperation. Another explosive claim is that Rep. Paul Gosar promised blanket pardons, which he said had been approved by Trump. Maybe,...
    In this article TSLAVIDEO2:0902:09Trading Nation: Two traders debate how much further Tesla can run up, now that it's hit $1,000 a shareTrading NationIt's a Monday of milestones for Tesla. The automaker exceeded $1,000 a share for the first time and entered the $1 trillion club, the handful of stocks such as Apple and Microsoft with market caps above that threshold. The stock rallied nearly 13% after rental car company Hertz said it would buy 100,000 models to beef up its electric-vehicle fleet, an order to be completely fulfilled by the end of 2022. "It's one of those typical tickers that generally will trade around a key psychological value, and in the options market it tends to stick at those levels," Danielle Shay, director of options at Simpler Trading, told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Monday.

    The Many Saints Of Newark may have been met with mixed reviews. But in the words of Tony Soprano; 'believe none of what you hear and half of what you see.'

    Royal weddings are always an occasion for pomp and ceremony. But the nuptials between Prince Philippos of Greece and billionaire's daughter Nina Flohr this weekend are tipped to be particularly lavish, even by royal standards.   Philippos, 35, godson of Princess Diana and the Duke of Edinburgh, will exchange vows with Nina, daughter of Swiss businessman Thomas Flohr, on Saturday at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens, according to Hola!. It will be the third wedding for the couple, who first wed last December in a small civil ceremony in St Moritz, Switzerland, followed by a high society springtime celebration in Cambridgeshire.  While both were intimate affairs - indeed there were just the two fathers as witnesses at the first - this third wedding has all the makings of a full-blown extravaganza.

    A Georgia county court overseeing the trial of Ahmaud Arbery has mistakenly exposed potential jurors to banned evidence, creating a chance for a mistrial.  Jury candidates who visited the Glynn County Superior Court website to learn about the jury duty process had easy access to all the motions filed so far on the murdered black jogger and the three suspected killers, Travis and Gregory McMichael and William 'Roddie' Bryan.'  Among the documents jurors could access was the mental health and prior criminal history records of the victim, which a judged removed as admissible evidence from the trial.  It also included evidence of Travis's truck with a Confederate flag vanity plate and how often he and his father's used their firearms. The judge has yet to decide whether these two pieces of evidence will be admissible in court. 'We are aware of that issue, and the decision about that [solutions] will be made by the judge,' Glynn County Superior Court Clerk Ronald Adams told VICE News.  Ahmaud Arbery, 25, died on February 23, 2020, while he was out for a run...
    When Drew Brees retired from the NFL last year after 20 seasons with the New Orleans Saints, he left in his place a serious cause for concern. Who would fill the position that he dominated so well for the years to come? The Saints had signed Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston in 2020, a year after he threw an astounding 30 interceptions. Having played just four games behind Brees and leading the Saints to a 3-2 record this season, it remains to be seen if Winston can become the future of the franchise. DREW BREES CONGRATULATES TOM BRADY ON ECLIPSING PASSING YARDS RECORD  Brees told Fox News in an interview on Tuesday that "only time will tell" but he certainly sees promise in Winston’s abilities as quarterback.  "I know this, I loved being with him last year. He is an extremely hard worker. He’s a guy that loves football and I think he’s a guy that has a ton of upside. He’s a tremendous talent and I can tell you this: He’s gonna work at it."

The 37th season of “The Challenge” is still going strong with many episodes left until the finale but luckily for die-hard fans of the show, there is a ton more “Challenge” content in the future, with one confirmed season of “All Stars” set to premiere soon and several other seasons rumored to be already in the works. Officially, the network has only announced the upcoming second season of “All Stars” which will premiere on Paramount+ on November 11.

    Former D.C. Metropolitan Police and Philadelphia police chief Charles Ramsey slammed the president of Chicago’s largest police union for directing members to disobey the city’s Covid-19 vaccination policy. He also took to task officers who have threatened to walk off the job over the order. The policy does not require employees to be vaccinated. Rather, city employees can choose between the vaccine and being tested twice a week. The policy, which goes into effect today, also requires employees to enter their vaccination status in an online portal. John Catanzara, the head of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, has directed members to ignore the city’s directive. “It is an improper order. It’s illegal,” he said. “I don’t care if it’s Superintendent [David] Brown. If somebody orders you to go into the portal, refuse that order.” City employees who fail to comply will be designated as being on non-disciplinary non-paid status. Ramsey, a 30-year veteran of the Chicago PD himself, called the Catanzara’s actions “incredibly unfortunate” on CNN Friday. “Police officers have an obligation much higher than this political nonsense that seems...
    A North Carolina caller was the latest to report a potential sighting of fugitive Brian Laundrie in Rocky Mount, N.C. early Wednesday evening.  "White male subject wearing a light grey t-shirt… walking toward 301… advised that he looked like Brian Laundrie," the dispatcher said over the scanner around 5:45 p.m. ET.  Police officers investigated the sighting and found that it was a false alarm.  "There was a citizen passerby that spotted an individual that matched the description of Brian Laundrie," Cpl. Ricky Jackson told Fox News. "Officers went to the area, located the individual that they were referring to, and we can positively identify that individual was not Brian Laundrie." Brian Laundrie, seen here in body camera footage on Aug. 12, disappeared from his North Port home on Sept. 13, according to his family's attorney.  (Moab City Police Department) It's the latest in a series of reported sightings of Laundrie in North Carolina and other states.  GABBY PETITO AUTOPSY: CORONER RULES STRANGULATION CAUSE OF DEATH Dennis Davis, a hiker who claims he is "100%" positive he saw Brian Laundrie...
    A white Indiana cop, who was seen on bodycam videos stomping on a black man's face while he was handcuffed and on the ground, was charged with two felonies and suspended without pay.  The suspect - Jermaine Vaughn, 39 - was arrested for disorderly conduct on September 24.  While lying on his back and being searched, Sgt. Eric Huxley - a 14-year-veteran of the Indiana Metropolitan Police Department - stomps on Vaughn's face and repeatedly says, 'Stop. You're done. You're done.' Vaughn appears to be in shock and his mouth bloodied. He was then rolled over onto his stomach and searched with his pants coming off. The video blurs his exposed backside.  WARNING: GRAPHIC   Indiana Metropolitan Police Sgt.

    Pregnant Freida Pinto Shares Photos from Her Sweet Baby Shower: I Feel So Blessed and Lucky For frustrated homebuyers, all-cash bids programs expand as workaround Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad The NFL is going to court. What happens next is anyone’s guess. This litigation isn’t breaking news. We’ve known since early September that the league unsuccessfully exhausted every avenue to get the Rams relocation lawsuit tossed out of court. Despite what will eventually be millions of dollars in billable hours and the very best white shoe attorneys that money can buy, the NFL’s most serious legal battle since the 1986 USFL antitrust suit rolls on. But there was a moment worthy of reflection this week when the leaking of email exchanges between Jon Gruden and former Washington Football Team executive Bruce Allen reminded us how much the league dominates investigative narratives. Maybe even to the point of choosing who gets protected and who gets sacrificed. That should raise concern where the realities of control lie in the St. Louis lawsuit. Before tying the events...
    SAN FRANCISCO — If the Giants are to win Game 5 against the Los Angeles in the National League Division Series at Oracle Park, someone will need to seize the moment. Someone like Will Clark in the NLCS in 1989 against the Chicago Cubs. Or Pablo Sandoval hitting a pair of home runs against Justin Verlander in Game 1 of the 2012 World Series. Maybe it’s someone more obscure, such as Edgar Renteria (2010) or Marco Scutaro (2012) or Cody Ross (2010). On the mound, if the Giants are to move on, pitcher Logan Webb and closer Camilo Doval are prime candidates to be heroes. Catcher Buster Posey, who has caught 14 postseason shutouts and won three World Series rings, would surprise no one should he connect on a home run similar to the one that propelled the Giants to their 4-0 Game 1 win over the Dodgers. Here are three other position players to consider: Brandon Crawford May as well ride their Most Valuable Player in 2021 to the promised land — or at least...
    In Game 4 of the NLDS, Los Angeles Dodgers fans got into a massive fight at the stadium in the middle of the showdown with the Giants.  Can’t we all just get along? That’s got to be what the folks at Dodger Stadium were thinking Tuesday night in the showdown between the LA Dodgers and San Francisco Giants. While the local club was fighting to keep their World Series dreams alive, some dudes in the stands decided to go all out themselves. That’s right, with LA battling San Francisco, a big-time brawl broke out among Dodgers fans. This wasn’t LA vs. San Francisco.

    Getty Ben Simmons has reported back with the Philadelphia 76ers. Ben Simmons is likely going to settle back into an uneasy — and likely unsteady — union with the Philadelphia 76ers, but that hasn’t stopped some from throwing more trade scenarios out there. Simmons has reported back to the Sixers, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, and he appears set to return after a months-long holdout, but technically, there’s still time for a trade. In his October 11 column for Bleacher Report, Greg Swartz put together four hypothetical “last minute” blockbuster trade proposals, and in what might be the most outlandish of the four, Swartz has the Los Angeles Clippers selling the farm in exchange for Simmons.

    An astronaut on board the International Space Station (ISS) has posted a stunning photo of what could be a 'blue starter' – a rare type of lightning that strikes upwards.  The European Space Agency's Thomas Pesquet – one of 10 humans aboard the space station right now as it it orbits 250 miles (400 km) above the Earth – captured the shot on September 9 but has only just posted it online.   The ethereal blue glow, seen over Europe during a thunder strike, is a 'transient luminous event', also known as upper-atmospheric lightning.  These bright, unpredictable flashes of light typically form on our planet about 60 miles above large thunderstorms, creating flares that last just milliseconds.  Image posted online by Thomas Pesquet shows the ethereal blue transient luminous event in the upper atmosphere over Europe BLUE JETS AND BLUE STARTERS A blue jet is a lightning discharge that reaches upwards through the stratosphere. A blue starter is shorter and brighter than a blue jet, but is also upwards-moving. 'Blue starters appear to be blue jets that never quite make it,' said Dr Victor P. Pasko, associate professor...
    By Siddharth Joshi, James Glynn, and Shivika Mittal Rooftop solar panels are up to 79 percent cheaper than they were in 2010. These plummeting costs have made rooftop solar photovoltaics even more attractive to households and businesses who want to reduce their reliance on electricity grids while reducing their carbon footprints. But are there enough rooftop surfaces for this technology to generate affordable, low-carbon energy for everyone who needs it? After all, it’s not just people who own their own houses and want to cut their bills who are in need of solutions like this. Around 800 million people globally go without proper access to electricity. Our new paper in Nature Communications presents a global assessment of how many rooftop solar panels we’d need to generate enough renewable energy for the whole world—and where we’d need to put them. Our study is the first to provide such a detailed map of global rooftop solar potential, assessing rooftop area and sunlight cover at scales all the way from cities to continents. We found that we would only need 50 percent...
    MLB Insider projects what the Yankees will do with Aaron Boone and a potential extension Alexander Wilson October 11, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Yankees have a big decision to make this off-season at the manager position. Aaron Boone and his contract are up with the Bombers, and after being knocked out of the postseason in the Wild Card game against the Boston Red Sox, the front office has to do some serious thinking of the future of the team. Boone made his fair share of mistakes this past season, tipping his hand too often and making odd moves with little justification. For example, in the Wild Card game, Boone pulled relief pitcher of Clay Holmes, despite him pitching two near-flawless innings and tossing just 16 pitches. Boone has come across as a poor in-game manager who lacks the discipline to either punish players for performing badly or rewarding them for a good play. Boone has already indicated he’s not worried about...

    How the Giants will likely supplement the potential loss of Andrew Thomas in Week 5 Alexander Wilson October 9, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Giants are preparing for left tackle Andrew Thomas to potentially miss Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5. Coming off an extravagant win over the New Orleans Saints last weekend, the Giants would like to build off their success, but a strong Dallas team requires all hands on deck. With Thomas being listed as questionable for the game, losing him would represent a massive hole on the offensive front. He currently hosts a 79 overall pass-blocking grade, a massive uptick compared to his 54.7 grade last season, per PFF. He hasn’t allowed a sack through four games, stonewalling Cam Jordan last week in arguably his best performance as a professional. Dealing with a foot injury, Thomas was limping noticeably during practice this week but was able to participate in a limited fashion. Thomas stated regarding the...

    Ryan Gosling Channels ‘Drive’ In Tag Heuer’s New Watch Campaign The Stock Market Is Another Life Lesson That Proves Stability Will Always Prevail The defending World Series champions escaped the wild-card game with an instant classic walk-off home run to set up the series everyone wants to see. View the original article to see embedded media.LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers never wanted this. They spent the last six months trying in vain to avoid the exact scenario they found themselves in on Wednesday night: a white-knuckle stressfest of an elimination game to begin the postseason. Instead of a quick exit, the four-hour pressure-cooker ended with yet another instantly iconic postseason moment for a franchise with more than a few of them. Chris Taylor’s two-out, walk-off home run gave Los Angeles more than just a 3-1 win over the Cardinals and a spot in the NLDS. It delivered a crushing blow to the rest of the 2021 postseason field who were no doubt hoping for the reigning champions to be victimized by MLB’s wild-card format and get bounced after just...
    If the first two days are any indication, this is going to be quite a postseason. Four of baseball’s most storied franchises played in the wild-card games, with the Red Sox beating the Yankees and then the Dodgers eliminating the Cardinals on Chris Taylor’s ninth-inning homer. Now, Los Angeles moves on to face San Francisco in the latest chapter of another famous rivalry — and the most anticipated matchup of the Division Series round. Now is also a good time to look ahead a bit. With four teams left in each league, there are 16 possible World Series matchups remaining. Here’s a quick glance at each one. The matchups are listed in descending order of likelihood, using probability figures from Fangraphs.com early Thursday morning. DODGERS-RED SOX (12.2%) A rematch of the 2018 World Series won by Boston — except now Mookie Betts is playing for Los Angeles. Alex Verdugo went to the Red Sox in that trade, and they also have ex-Dodgers Nathan Eovaldi and Kiké Hernández playing significant roles.

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki fended off questions Wednesday about Hunter Biden's art gallery opening in Los Angeles – and the attendance of ambassadorial nominee LA Mayor Eric Garcetti at the event. Psaki, who has fielded questions about the president's son's business dealings on other occasions, quickly sought to shift attention to gallery owner George Berges, who is organizing shows of Hunter's artwork this fall. She tried to navigate questions about transparency and potential conflicts when asked about images and video obtained by DailyMail.com of the L.A. opening for Hunter's work. Hunter Biden attended the event – along with celebrities including Moby along with Garcetti and other notables. Her tactic was to point repeatedly to the 'gallerist' who organized the show. 'Well, to be clear, we've spoken to the arrangement that is run by the gallerist, and Hunter Biden's representative, that the White House provided suggestions for. I'd refer you to the gallerist for questions about the event as well as the representatives of Mr. Garcetti in terms of his attendance,' she said.  'I would point you to the gallerist':...
