    SAN FRANCISCO — Andrew Wiggins and his coach, Steve Kerr, were both able to admit after avenging their loss to the Suns that Golden State’s newly aggressive wing wasn’t at his full capacity in their first meeting earlier this week. At full health Friday, Wiggins showed what he is capable of with 19 points while shadowing Chris Paul on defense in the Warriors’ 118-96 win Friday, evening the season series with the Warriors’ top competition in the West after a loss Tuesday in the desert. Back spasms bothered him the morning of their first clash, and he turned in his quietest performance since his awakening against Minnesota. “I thought Wiggs was fantastic defensively, just setting a tone on Chris right away, hounding him everywhere he went,” coach Steve Kerr said. “And also contributing offensively the way he did, I thought Wiggs had a great game.” Wiggins said he felt far better Friday. It showed. With Devin Booker out, Wiggins took on the task of guarding Paul, the Suns’ slippery point guard, often picking him up at...
    MANCHESTER UNITED interim manager Ralf Rangnick has revealed why he rejected the Chelsea job earlier this year before Thomas Tuchel's arrival. The German was offered just four months to work his magic with the manager-less Blues. "When Chelsea contacted me it was just for four months interim manager" ????Ralf Rangnick explains why he turned down a move to Chelsea earlier this year - but he could not reject Manchester United pic.twitter.com/Jt38i6pV5N— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) December 3, 2021 There was also no indication Rangnick would work with the club long-term after his stint in charge as manager. He has since taken up a six-month managerial job at United with the prospective of a two-year advisory role afterwards. In his first appearance in front of the press as United boss, Rangnick said: "At the time when Chelsea contacted me this year in February, they only spoke about the option to become interim manager for four months. "So it was in February, without any prospective to work in the long-term together, and here now we're talking about six-and-a-half months, so...

    by Brooke Rogers | CBS 11 DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – ‘Tis the season to spend, and shoppers are back in the stores this year. But experts say consumers actually kicked off the season well before Black Friday. READ MORE: 16 Units Damaged In 3-Alarm Apartment Fire In Fort WorthBlack Friday traffic in stores was down nearly 30% from 2019, according to Sensormatic Global Retail Consulting. Senior Director Brian Field said shoppers are more enthusiastic about shopping in stores than they were last year. He said while shoppers are still concerned about the pandemic, increases in online shopping and hybrid shopping, like curbside pickup, contribute to the data.

    On the morning that Irina Izmestieva was found dead on the sofa at her palatial West London home, her oil tycoon husband Igor was waking in his dingy prison cell, 3,000 miles away in the Russian Urals. Irina, a glamorous 52-year-old former Moscow TV presenter and film-maker, was discovered ten days ago in mysterious circumstances after concerned friends summoned police to her £15 million house. Just a stone’s throw from Kensington Palace, Irina had been enjoying a life far removed from the dismal existence of Igor, the multi-millionaire father of her two daughters and, latterly, enemy of Vladimir Putin. Russian socialite Irina Izmestieva was found dead in her London mansion earlier this month and friends are demanding MI5 investigate The White Swan penal colony, where her 55-year-old husband is incarcerated in a cell with two others, is one of Russia’s toughest prisons. It is home to serial killers and cannibals, as well as Izmestiev, a former Moscow senator and oil dealer who has been locked up there since 2010 for crimes including murder and tax evasion — although his supporters...
    Washington (CNN)Former President Donald Trump on Monday endorsed a primary challenger running against Republican Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan in his latest effort to oust the GOP lawmakers who voted to impeach him earlier this year. "John Gibbs is running against RINO Congressman Peter Meijer in Michigan's 3rd District. Meyer has been a terrible representative of the Republican Party and beyond," Trump said in a statement that misspells Meijer's last name at one point. "John Gibbs is a fabulous talent who loves the State, our Military, and our Vets."Rep. Anthony Gonzalez: The cold hard truth is Donald Trump led us into a ditch on January 6The former President has made clear that he wants to shape the future of the party, putting a target on the Republicans who voted to impeach him.

    President Joe Biden’s approval numbers have been steadily slipping in recent months, but his especially poor performance among independent voters in recent polls seems to be like a dead canary in the coal mine for the president. In a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday, just 37% of total respondents said they approve of Biden’s job performance, a one-point decrease from an earlier poll on Oct. 6. But the president’s approval numbers among independents were even worse, with just 28% of independent voters saying they approve of his performance compared to 32% earlier in October.
    In this article AMZN TGT Stephen Chernin | Getty Images News | Getty ImagesSupply chain bottlenecks and rising prices aren't keeping consumers from buying. The latest retail sales numbers show U.S. consumers are spending at a much faster pace than expected, excluding autos, up over 15% in September. Back-to-school and back-to-work trends drove a higher level of transactions despite the headwinds of inventory shortages and inflation, but what about early holiday shopping? With widespread supply chain warnings, retailers including Amazon and Target started to offer holiday promotions even earlier than normal to get ahead of the lack of inventory and to ease consumer anxiety. That may yet lead to an accelerated timeline for holiday gift buying. NPD Group said in its annual holiday shopping outlook that 51% of respondents to a survey said they plan to start holiday shopping before Thanksgiving, but that is only up slightly from last year. The early shopping trend is not new in retail. Major retailers had Thanksgiving Day store openings as far back as 2014 and Amazon's Prime Day moved to October last...
    Jammed supply chains are already beginning to threaten the possibility that holiday shoppers will fulfill their wishlist, financial experts say. Co-head of AlixPartners’ retail consulting practice, Joel Bines, told the Financial Times that retailers will have difficulty securing the “most in-demand” items this year for consumers to purchase for their families at Christmas. “There will definitely be weeping children this holiday season,” Bines said. “Black Friday doesn’t exist; the holiday season doesn’t exist, not as it used to,” he explained about the change in supply chains that has forced stores to expand the holiday season. “It’s essentially October 1 to January 15.” Savita Subramanian of Merrill Lynch Japan Equity and Quantitative Strategy Responsibility told Reuters the holiday shortage is related to the coronavirus. “COVID-related supply chain problems extend beyond consumer goods, and it’s easy to find long-term signs of global friction,” Subramanian said about the difficulty of stocking items on shelves early enough. For instance, Lowe’s chief financial officer, David Denton, said the company has decided to try to circumvent the supply chain issue by shipping in items even earlier. After a quick start to Halloween...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Two of the Minneapolis police officers recorded on recently-released body camera video making disparaging comments about protesters in the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder are no longer on the force. The Minneapolis Police Department confirmed to WCCO-TV that Lt. Johnny Mercil left the department on May 3 and Cmdr. Bruce Folks left on July 31. In the body camera footage, which was released earlier this week, Mercil is heard saying that he thought a group of protesters was white because “there’s not looting and fires,” The Star Tribune reported.

    Asteroid 2021 SG, which flew past Earth undetected on September 16, would have been spotted by an upcoming telescope used to detect such dangerous space rocks, NASA has insisted. Known as the Near-Earth Object Surveyor space telescope (NEO Surveyor), the craft 'probably' would have spotted the asteroid on a different part of its orbit and earlier in its trajectory towards Earth, Paul Chodas, director of NASA's Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS), told DailyMail.com.  Asteroid 2021 SG whizzed past Earth at 153,000 miles on September 16, a distance of approximately half that of the moon. It was not detected until September 17.  This space rock has a diameter between 138 and 308 feet, or larger than a football field and roughly the same size as the State of Liberty. Scroll down for video   'Because of its far greater sensitivity over current asteroid surveys, NEO Surveyor probably would have detected this asteroid on a different part of the asteroid’s orbit, when the asteroid was farther away from the sun direction,' Chodas said in an email.  Asteroid 2021 SG would have been detected...
    Washington (CNN)Hackers breached the Republican Governors Association in February, potentially exposing the personal data of nearly 500 people affiliated with the organization, the RGA said in a September 15 public filing. Social Security numbers may have been among the exposed data, according to a statement accompanying the notification from Mark McCreary, an attorney for the RGA.It was unclear who was responsible for the breach, which exploited Microsoft software, or what the hackers did with any data they may have accessed. Jesse Hunt, an RGA spokesman, did not comment when asked by CNN who carried out the hack or how many people may have had their Social Security numbers exposed.

    (CNN)Unidentified hackers breached computer systems at the United Nations in April and the multinational body has had to fend off related hacks in the months since, a UN spokesperson said Thursday.The statement came after multiple private cybersecurity experts warned that cybercriminal forums had in recent months been selling access to login credentials for software that the UN uses to manage internal projects. The software could provide valuable access to intruders looking to extort the UN or steal data."We can confirm that unknown attackers were able to breach parts of the United Nations infrastructure in April of 2021," UN spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric said in a statement, after an earlier report from Bloomberg News.

    (CNN)The World Health Organization's vaccine-sharing program COVAX forecasts an additional 1.1 billion Covid-19 vaccine doses will be made available globally between now and the end of the year, fewer than previously estimated.This forecast, released Wednesday, projects 25% fewer doses compared to July's forecast. The new projection prompted a fresh call from WHO for rich countries to hold off on giving boosters until more people around the world can get their first doses of vaccine.Currently, 330 million doses have been released for delivery to underserved countries through COVAX, and 230 million have been delivered to member countries. In what the report calls the "most likely scenario" for vaccine supply through the end of the year, more than a billion more doses will be made available between September and the end of the year. "We expect to have a further 1.1 billion doses available for delivery between now and the end of the year," Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO of GAVI, one of the groups that makes up COVAX, said in a media briefing. Doses will be targeted to 92 lower-income countries. Read...

    Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi speaks at a product launch event in San Francisco, California on September 26, 2019.Philip Pacheco | AFP via Getty Images Uber's one-time, $9.4 billion stake in Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi has dwindled by half in less than a month as China escalates its threats to U.S.-listed companies. More than $2 billion of the drop came this week. Didi's American depositary shares, which debuted at $14 a piece in June on the New York Stock Exchange, plunged 21% on Friday to $8.02, after falling 11% a day earlier. They had reached a closing high of $16.40 on July 1, the second day of trading. Uber owns about 12% of Didi, making it the second-largest investor behind SoftBank. Uber obtained its stake in 2016 after selling its Chinese business to Didi in exchange for equity in its rival. Didi's IPO came with a lot of hype and a market cap of close to $70 billion. But the honeymoon was short-lived, as within days of the offering separate reports surfaced that Chinese officials were conducting a cybersecurity review of...
    More On: COVID vaccine Boy dies of COVID-19 as cases surge nationwide Study suggests Johnson & Johnson vaccine less effective against Delta variant Grading Joe Biden’s first six months in office No, Delta doesn’t mean the vaccinated — or children — need to mask up again Pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson revealed Wednesday that it expects to take home about $2.5 billion from COVID-19 vaccine sales in 2021, far lower than estimates from its jab rivals Moderna and Pfizer. Pfizer and Moderna have previously forecast $26 billion and $19.2 billion in annual sales of their vaccines, respectively. Those two-shot vaccines were approved by US regulators last year, while J&J’s one-shot vaccine was approved earlier this year. J&J’s vaccine has been hit by various setbacks, including concerns over rare but severe side effects that appear to be linked to the vaccine as well as questions over the shot’s effectiveness against new variants of the virus.

This year, the company’s sales have been steadily improving as vaccinations allow for the opening of restaurants and offices in the U.S. and other countries. HOME SALES PICKUP? Economists project that sales of previously occupied U.S. homes rose in June after a four-month pullback. They predict the National Association of Realtors will report Thursday that the pace of sales increased to a seasonally adjusted rate of 5.90 million annualized units. Sales have been slowing as soaring prices and a limited number of available properties discourage many would-be buyers. Sales fell 0.9% in May from the previous month, but were up nearly 45% from a year earlier. Existing home sales, in millions, seasonally adjusted annual rate: Jan. 6.66 Feb....

According to the Foreign Office, the attack was done to enable "large-scale espionage" including stealing people's identifiable information and intellectual property.

    RICHMOND — A Father’s Day shooting that killed three people and injured five others had similarities to a drive-by shooting in Oakland earlier this month, and investigators are exploring whether the two were connected, a police official said.

    Morsa Images | E+ | Getty Images Early in 2021, SPACs, or special purpose acquisition companies, raised record amounts of money to take private firms public. The frenzy, and recent slump of SPAC shares, could lead to riskier deals in the coming months and years, meaning those looking to invest in a SPAC may want to proceed with caution, observers say. So far this year, 330 SPACs have raised nearly $105 billion, according to SPAC Research. That's a jump from prior years — in 2020, 248 SPACs raised more than $83 billion and in 2019, 59 SPACS raised more than $13 billion.

    (CNN)The Biden administration formally ended the Trump-era policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico until their court dates in the United States, according to a memo issued by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Shortly after President Joe Biden took office, the Department of Homeland Security suspended new enrollments to the program formally known as Migrant Protection Protocols. The department subsequently kicked off the process of gradually allowing asylum seekers previously subject to the program into the US. Between February 19 and May 25, around 11,200 migrants were processed into the US, according to Mayorkas' memo Tuesday. Mayorkas said he had determined that the policy, informally known as "remain in Mexico," had "mixed effectiveness."RELATED: Vice President Harris' team tries to distance her from fraught situation at the border"I direct DHS personnel to take all appropriate actions to terminate MPP, including taking all steps necessary to rescind implementing guidance and other directives or policy guidance issued to implement the program," Mayorkas wrote to the leaders of the three DHS immigration agencies.Read MoreVice President Harris team tries to distance her from fraught situation...
    More On: bill cosby Kathie Lee Gifford recalls time Bill Cosby ‘tried to kiss’ her Bill Cosby’s lawyer makes bid to overturn sex assault conviction ‘These aren’t normal times’: Cosby’s rep releases bizarre video ahead of hearing Bill Cosby smiles on prison call after creepy mugshot surfaces A Pennsylvania parole board denied convicted sex predator Bill Cosby’s bid to be released from prison earlier this month, a report said Thursday. The board denied Cosby’s parole for a host of reasons, including his failure to complete a sex offender treatment program and for not developing a “parole release plan,” TMZ reported. Cosby also got a negative review from the state’s department of corrections, according to the gossip site. A rep for the disgraced actor told TMZ he was not surprised by the denial because Cosby had not completed the sex offender treatment program. Cosby was given a three- to 10-year sentence in September 2018 after being convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in suburban Philadelphia in 2004. Cosby had previously appealed...

    Washington (CNN)The Biden administration notified Congress of a proposed US weapons sale to Israel worth $735 million earlier this month, according to two sources familiar with the notification. The sale of the precision-guided weapons, which the administration approved before the latest outbreak of violence between Hamas and the Israeli government, is now being reviewed by Congress as concerns grow among progressive Democrats about the Biden administration remaining adamant that Israel has a right to defend itself from rocket attacks from Hamas. Israel has been the largest recipient of US foreign assistance since World War II and this sale is one small part of overall US military support. The US pledged to provide $38 billion in military aid to Israel from 2019 to 2028 in an agreement between the two countries in 2016. Congress has 15 days to review the proposed sale -- which it received notification of on May 5 -- before it is finalized. The Washington Post was first to report that the White House had notified Congress odf the proposed sale. Israeli warplanes pound Hamas tunnels as...

    Pay in Southern California rose at a nation-leading 4.8% annual rate in the 12 months ended in March as some bosses paid up to keep businesses running in the pandemic era. The Employment Cost Index tracks changes in what workers cost employers. Wage hikes in the region of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties were up from 4.1% a year earlier and were the biggest increases among 15 regions tracked. Local salaries have been boosted by an increase in the minimum wage as well as “hero” pay arrangements for first responders or front-line service workers, like grocery employees. But pay trends have been tricky to track due to the pandemic’s uneven economic wallop.

    As warming spring temperatures encourage Americans to gather outside, the air can be particularly brutal for those who suffer from allergies. Elevated pollen counts can cause a slew of symptoms including itching, watering eyes; runny noses; sneezing; and coughing. Meteorologists and allergists say that, with climate change, allergies are getting worse and worse every year - with 2021 shaping up to be the worst year yet. This means not only longer pollen seasons, but also more intense seasons.  Allergy seasons that typically started in April, are now beginning as early as the first week of March or last week of February, doctors reveal.  What's more, a recent report from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America found that across the country - from Scranton, Pennsylvania to Richmond, Virginia to Wichita, Kansas - cities are reporting worsening seasonal allergies.  Meanwhile, most scientists have stopped the labor-intensive work of pollen counting, so there are very few researchers at the 90 counting stations across the country who are scrambling to discover if there is more pollen than usual in the air. Experts say...
