    Newsmax’s Eric Bolling shared a number of disturbingly hateful messages he received over a recent segment where he accused President Joe Biden of not doing enough to enforce the law. The segment in question showed Bolling proclaiming that “In Biden’s America, Black Friday isn’t negative, it’s positive because everything is free.” Bolling made the claim during a snarky segment about the smash-and-grab robberies witnessed across the U.S. in recent days. “America’s back, baby!” Bolling exclaimed with clear sarcasm. He went on by ripping Biden’s Thanksgiving message to Al Roker, plus the president’s holiday getaway to Nantucket “while the regular folks like us struggle with the most expensive Thanksgiving in history.” Bolling made it clear he was being hyperbolic, even as he chalked up the lawlessness to “Biden’s America.” Nonetheless, it was enough for some people to send venomous criticism his way, one of which was an email that cruelly referenced the death of Bolling’s son from a drug overdose. You said on Newsmax: “In Biden’s America, Black Friday isn’t negative, it’s positive because everything is free.” You’re a fucking idiot....

    Traveling is one thing a lot of people missed doing when the pandemic first struck. As a result of canceled flights, a lot of us ended up with miles and travel vouchers that we had no idea when it would be safe to use next.  In comes Miles4Migrants, a 501(c)(3) charity that uses donated frequent flyer miles to reunite families around the world separated by war, persecution, and disaster. Instead of being sad that you’re unable to use your miles or vouchers, you now have the opportunity to gift them to those in need.  Miles4Migrants partners with over 50 nonprofits across the world to identify refugees, asylees, asylum seekers, and their immediate family members in need. It does not discriminate by race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or any other identity. After identifying those in need, it pays for the flights of those who can legally enter a new country but cannot afford the airfare.  xHey, #frequentflyers! Did you know that you can swap out just ONE business class ticket booked w/ miles or points and instead help ~15-20 refugees reunite with loved...
    One in three people who use Netflix in the United States does not pay, but instead use the account of a family member or friend. They are not official figures (they never give them), but this is what a 2016 survey that Survata has prepared for Quartz says. In addition, another 2020 survey indicates that more than half of users share the account. That Netflix allows several people to use an account is something that we already know, since their plans offer different possibilities: from a simultaneous playback that offers the basic one to the four streams of the advanced one. But In what cases and with whom can you share it? This is no longer so clear, although we have tried to shed some light on this question. What the Netflix terms of use say First, we take a look at the Netflix terms of use to find out what the rules of use that apply to this case. In point 4, in which they detail the conditions of the service, they explain that it is “non-transferable”: 4.2. The...

    By LifeBridge Health There’s no better way to spend a hot summer day than by the pool with your family. READ MORE: Novavax: Large Study Finds COVID-19 Shot About 90% Effective However, before you grab your towel and hit the water, it’s important to remember the dangers associated with swimming and know how to keep your child safe at the pool. Stay Supervised While it is nice to relax at the pool, it is no place to take your eyes off of your children. “The most important safety rule in the pool is supervision,” says Heather Wade, M.D., a pediatrician with The Herman & Walter Samuelson Children’s Hospital at Sinai. Children of all ages, including strong swimmers, can still be in danger if they are not supervised, so it’s important to designate someone to watch your children closely. Take Breaks Swimming can be a great exercise and a fun summer activity, but it can also be exhausting. Wade recommends making sure your child takes a break every one to two hours while at the pool. This will not...
    An Ohio couple and two of their 19 children, who are adults, have been charged after their daughter who escaped the family came forward with a string of allegations against them.   Robert Bellar, 54 and his wife Deborah Bellar, 49, face charges in connection with an ongoing sexual abuse investigation concerning their children. Two of their sons Jonathan Levi Bellar, 26, and Josiah Bellar, 24, have also been charged.  That came after one of Robert and Deborah's daughters told The Athens Messenger she was forced to attend a 'cult' church run by her uncle, James Bellar, who would tell them their siblings would have to have children with one another in order to prepare for the apocalypse.  Serah Bellar said: 'All the kids would have to go, whether they wanted to or not— even if you were sick, you had to go, it didn’t matter. 'Anytime he’d say anything, I’d just kind of repeat it in my head, like, how messed up it kind of sounded. He’d always talk about the end of the world and how you’d reproduce with your siblings.'  That...
    Sean Hannity ripped into Prince Harry for calling the First Amendment 'bonkers', calling him a 'right royal pain in the a**'. The Fox News primetime host called out Harry for comments he made on Dax Shepard's podcast Armchair Expert on Thursday, where he admitted he didn't understand the First Amendment.  Addressing the comments at the end of his 9pm Fox show, Hannity said: 'Before we go I have a message for Harry who is now attacking one of America's most sacred rights, the freedom of speech. 'Harry, we really don't need  you coming from England to give us lectures on the First Amendment. 'And if you can't understand the importance of free expression and the importance of Constitutional  principles that allow for a free exchange of ideas and opinions that make America the greatest country on earth then maybe it's time for you to move to a place more compatible with your restrictive ideas.  'This is what public figures in America go through.'

    'Never complain, never explain, and rarely be heard speaking in public,' was the Queen Mother's simple, legendary template for royal popularity. It stood her in great stead throughout her own 101-year life. Most British people would have had no idea what Queen Elizabeth thought of anything, or even what she sounded like. Yet she died a hugely popular and beloved public figure. In many ways, she was very similar to Prince Philip: tough, uncompromising, stoic, and resolutely silent in public about the myriad scandals that have engulfed the Royal Family. They had both had very strong opinions, they just preferred not to share them outside of the family and close, trusted friends. But many of the younger royals that followed them have behaved very differently - emoting on television, playing the victim, wallowing in self-pity, complaining about their regally gilded lives, and getting themselves into all manner of lurid scrapes that have damaged the family's reputation. As his mourning family prepare to gather this Saturday to say goodbye to one of its greatest figures at his funeral, they would...
    Dedication. Devotion. Duty. That's all you need to know about Prince Philip. For 73 years, this extraordinarily selfless man gave his life to the service of his adoptive country and to his wife, the Queen. He was the longest-serving royal consort to any sovereign in British history. And he was tough, uncompromising, fiercely loyal, incredibly hard-working, unapologetically belligerent, and suffered fools as benevolently as a lion suffers a weak-willed gazelle in the African bush. The news of the Duke of Edinburgh's death hit me hard. He was a constant presence in my life from the day I was born in 1965, the immovable rock at the side of my Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. Whenever it mattered, there he was; indomitable, steely-eyed, jut-jawed. Philip could have been whatever he wanted to be, and he chose to be his wife's protector and defender. Dedication. Devotion. Duty. That's all you need to know about Prince Philip. For 73 years, this extraordinarily selfless man gave his life to the service of his adoptive country and to his wife, the Queen Prince Philip, this...

    One of the most daunting tasks an adult child will eventually have to face is the handling of their parents’ estate and all of its contents accumulated over a lifetime. No one wants to think about the future when our parents become ill or pass away. Sometimes these life events can take years to surface, and sometimes they can happen overnight. What you need is a game plan in advance. By far, most adult children are catapulted into the world of handling an estate under the duress of a crisis. It happens more frequently than most people realize, and all it takes is for a parent to fall and break a hip or to pass away suddenly. Having those courageous conversations with your older loved ones in advance while they are still healthy and sound enough to do so is one of the most important things you can do. Decisions should be made in advance of any infirmity, and adult children should be given trusted guidance they can follow. Read: 6 ways to decline your parents’ old stuff without...

    If the U.S. Supreme Court throws out the Affordable Care Act, your finances and your future could pay the price. One week after votes for the next president are cast, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in a blockbuster dispute involving the fate of Obamacare.  At issue in the case brought by a group of Republican-led states — which are backed by the Trump administration — is whether the health care law's individual mandate to have health insurance is unconstitutional, since Congress abolished the financial penalty for individuals who do not purchase health insurance in its overhaul of the tax code in 2017. The justices are also tasked with deciding whether the rest of Obamacare can survive if the individual mandate is invalidated.

They Make You Question Your Recollection of Past Events It’s normal for you and your parent to remember events, specifically from your childhood, a little differently. Maybe you could’ve sworn it was your fifth birthday party that was Power Ranger-themed instead of your sixth, or that your favorite backpack was the Barbie one, not the Barney one. It veers into gaslighting territory, though, when your parent tries to act like something that had a profound effect on you didn’t happen. Let’s say you remember a time when you were bullied in middle school. You might try to bring it up, only to be told that you’re being dramatic, and that that actually never really happened. This, in turn, invalidates your experiences and makes you question your own memory. Both major...

Even if your loved ones aren't physically with you, you can still have a meaningful wedding day that makes you feel connected to them if you get creative.

    America is close to a coronavirus vaccine. It is the path forward for our nation and the world. Everyone who can take it should. As a doctor, I can assure you that the vaccine the Food and Drug Administration approves will be both safe and effective. The professionals at the FDA will thoroughly investigate any vaccine before it is made available to the public. The FDA’s career scientists will make decisions based solely on clinical evidence. The data is made publicly available and is transparent. This is no time for political games. A vaccine is exactly what we need to put the coronavirus pandemic in the rearview mirror. FAUCI 'SERIOUSLY DOUBTS' RUSSIA'S CORONAVIRUS VACCINE IS EFFECTIVE A vaccine by January 2021 would be an all-time record. We owe this to the Trump administration’s public-private partnership — Operation Warp Speed – and to the outstanding American scientists working around the clock. Yet there are skeptics who question the value, safety or efficacy of a vaccine. They question the process and doubt the experts.More from Opinion Dr. Nicole Saphier: Coronavirus hit health care...
    Financial advisers help clients achieve a richer, fuller life — and death. Financial planners often urge clients to envision their passing — and its effect on their loved ones. It’s a grim but necessary part of the job. The fear of death can shut down such conversations. Clients may change the subject and refuse to engage, leaving advisers struggling to broach estate planning, life insurance and other priorities. “All of it is uncomfortable,” said Tracy Sherwood, a certified financial planner in Williamsville, N.Y. “No one wants to think of their untimely demise.” Rather than pressure clients to confront the Grim Reaper, Sherwood prefers to proceed in baby steps. She might begin by asking them to complete advance directive forms. At a subsequent meeting, she may invite them to consider their legacy and list core values they want to pass on to family members. “Instead of leaving them with their fears, I’ll remind them that everything we’re doing puts them in the best position to make the best decisions today while they can,” she said. “If we can agree to...

    Breaking News — Rome, June 24 . .- Pope Francis has written an emotional letter to the former Formula 1 driver and four-time Paralympic cycling champion, Álex Zanardi, who has been hospitalized and sedated since June 19, when he suffered an accident. “Dear Alessandro, your story is an example of how to start again after a sudden stop. Through sport you taught us to live life as protagonists, making disability a lesson in humanity,” wrote Pope Francis in the letter, published this Wednesday by the newspaper “Gazzetta dello Sport”. “Thank you for giving strength to those who had lost it … At this very painful moment I am close to you, I pray for you and your family. May the Lord bless you and Our Lady protect you,” added the Argentine pontiff. Zanardi is sedated and stable at the Le Scotte hospital in Siena (Tuscany, center), after last Friday he suffered a serious accident during an exhibition. The 53-year-old former Formula 1 driver lost control of his handbike (manual trike) while participating in the Obiettivo Tricolor exhibition and invaded...
    Abby Huntsman and her family have been battling COVID-19, she revealed, after she and some family members received false negative tests. The former host of “The View” — who left the show last year and moved to Utah to work on her father’s gubernatorial campaign — has been documenting the experience on social media. She said in a video on Twitter: “My dad [candidate Jon Huntsman Jr.] is pretty much about 95 percent back to normal … My mom still has no taste or smell … Others in the house are currently dealing with a fever, aches … Everyone in our house has experienced it totally differently.” She said of her own time with the disease: “The best way I can describe my experience is: It feels like a giant snake that is perfectly wrapped around your body, and the snake decides when, where and how it wants to squeeze you. So, one hour it can be your head and you have the worst migraines of your life. And the next hour you feel totally fine. And the next...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Long-time San Francisco Assemblyman Phil Ting took to social media Saturday, issuing a public apology to his family, fellow lawmakers and constituents for having an extramarital affair. A conservative website revealed the affair on Friday, claiming the relationship may have impacted his handling of business as the powerful chairman of the Assembly Budget Committee. In a lengthy Twitter string, Ting apologized and said the affair had not influenced his duties in Sacramento. “To My Family, Constituents and Colleagues: I am writing to offer each and every one of you a direct apology that my personal behavior has hurt you. Some of you might have seen a report in a right-wing online site alleging that my advocacy for workers was motivated by by a relationship outside of my marriage. The allegation that my bills or votes were ever driven by any personal consideration is false. I have fought for the rights of working people my entire adult life.” “But I was not faithful to my marriage vows and for that, I am deeply, deeply sorry. I...
    This article is reprinted by permission from NerdWallet. If you get COVID-19 and struggle to breathe, would you want to be put on a ventilator? Whatever your answer, ask yourself another question: Who would make your wishes clear if you couldn’t speak for yourself? Advance directives — an umbrella term that includes living wills and health care proxies or powers of attorney — are legal documents that all of us need but that many of us don’t have. A living will allows you to tell your loved ones and medical providers what kinds of medical care you want at the end of your life. Health care proxies or powers of attorney allow you to designate someone to make medical decisions for you if you can’t communicate. You need both, since not all medical situations will trigger a living will, says Carolyn McClanahan, a physician and certified financial planner in Jacksonville, Florida. “A living will only really kicks in if you have an end stage process, a persistent vegetative state or a terminal illness,” McClanahan says. “Oftentimes people run into a situation where...
    Dear Moneyist, I have an estranged husband, and we have been living separately for years. He has been filing taxes jointly without my knowledge AND now he has received my stimulus money AND my kids’ stimulus money. I can’t hire an attorney because I’m poor, and I live in a rural area where there are no attorneys who will take my case without a fee. I’ve asked a legal center how to bring this issue of financial abuse to the divorce judge and, so far, I have received no answers. I have no idea how the Internal Revenue Service will react, given that we are still legally married. I do know the money was deposited into his account. We never had joint bank accounts. My ex-partner doesn’t communicate with me. His phone has been off for weeks. He has used the pandemic to commit emotional and economic abuse. What can I do? Claudia Dear Claudia, You may have to wait longer for your money, but you will get it. What your husband did is fraud, it’s against the...
    George Floyd's brother Philonise spoke out against the growing movement to defund the police on Sunday, telling Fox News' Arthel Neville that officers can do their jobs "and still maintain respect for others." "What I would like is for all police around America to get their jobs and do them the right way, the correct way. Innocent people shouldn't have to die," Philonise Floyd said on "America's News HQ." "You can do your job and still maintain respect for others." Floyd's comments came amid growing calls to weaken law enforcement in the wake of his brother's May 25 death. As violent protests erupted across the nation, the Black Lives Matter movement announced a "call for a national defunding of police," which has gained support among notable Democrats and celebrities. GEORGE FLOYD'S BROTHER AT HOUSE HEARING: 'STOP THE PAIN' "You can do your job and still maintain respect for others."— Philonise Floyd, 'America's News HQ'Floyd family attorney Benjamin Crump told Neville that the push to defund police departments "has not come from Philonise Floyd's family or anybody working with us." "We want to try to work to say we need to do restructuring and we need to work together...
    DEAR ABBY: May I share with you a way my husband and I are staying connected? My daughter came up with the idea. She and her daughter live a good distance from us. She decided the four of us should have a virtual dinner together three times a week. We move our dining chairs together and position a tablet opposite us so we are visible on the screen. They do the same. We use FaceTime (Skype or a similar app would also work) to connect online. We set dinner on the table, say grace together and proceed to eat — all the while talking, joking and laughing as if we were in each other’s presence. Abigail Van Buren Abby, I can’t tell you how much this has alleviated the feelings of isolation. We look forward to it all day. We phone, text and email at other times, as well, but these dinners together are a very special hour or more that give us a feeling of still being connected. It’s a difficult time right now, but this is such a...
    Dr. Alveda King, the niece of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., told "Bill Hemmer Reports" Monday that the riots and violence that have devolved from peaceful protests over the May 25 death of George Floyd is "disrespectful" to his family and tainting the message of legitimate protest. "They are grieving. They miss their loved one," King said of Floyd's family. "This was a man who was helping to build and strengthen the community. And yet, these rioters and looters..." she trailed off. Shortly before King joined Hemmer, Floyd's brother Terrence made an emphatic call for an end to the violence and decried looters and rioters who he said are undermining the family's search for justice. ALVEDA KING CALLS FOR LEADERSHIP, UNITY AND FAITH AS FLOYD PROTESTS CONTINUE Echoing Terrence Floyd, King said protesters should make their "concerns known" peacefully and lawfully. "You march, you pray, you make your concerns known, and then you follow that and vote in a moral way that is not going to kill anybody or hurt anybody," she said. "You hope you elect people that will value that life in the sanctity of life and breath ... but his brother in the family...
