    This is the moment terrified eco-students were forced to run for their lives after a six-ton sex-crazed bull elephant charged their jeep while on a tour in South Africa.  Trainee guides were being driven through Selati Game Reserve on the edge of the Kruger National Park in South Africa on Sunday when they were charged by a bull elephant in 'musth' - a state of sexual aggression that occurs during mating season.  Video captured the moment their open-topped car was being driven down a narrow dirt road when the bull charged out of the undergrowth, trumpeting and pawing the ground before smashing into the side of the vehicle and lifting it off the road.  More footage captured from the car behind by EcoTraining guides reveals how the car was turned sideways by 13ft elephant - sending three female students running for their lives.

    ROME — Pope Francis launched an appeal for migrants Sunday, insisting that when we think of migrants we should think of their suffering. After having met with members of associations and groups of migrants Saturday, the pope welcomed them in his midday Angelus address in Saint Peter’s Square and urged his hearers to open their hearts to migrants. “How many migrants are exposed, even in these days, to very serious dangers, and how many lose their lives at our borders!” the pontiff exclaimed. “News of the situation in which so many of them find themselves pains me: those who died in the English Channel; those on the borders of Belarus, many of whom are children; those who drown in the Mediterranean.” “So much pain thinking about them,” he added. “Or those who are repatriated to North Africa and are captured by traffickers, who turn them into slaves: they sell women, torture men,” he continued. “Or those who, even this week, they tried to cross the Mediterranean looking for a land of well-being and instead finding a tomb there, and many...
    Center for Vaccine Development director Dr. Peter Hotez said Monday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that since COVID-19 vaccines have been available, “150,000 unvaccinated Americans needlessly lost their lives because they were defiant.” Hotez said, “The problem is, Chris, right now, the major component of fighting the battle against Omicron in the United States is the same as fighting the battle against Delta. By getting boosted, you’ll not only have a 30 to 40 fold rise in virus-neutralizing antibody to prevent you from getting the Delta variant or going to the hospital, but there’s likely, as Tony said, Dr. Fauci said, you’re going to get a spillover against the Omicron variant. I think that was a major message. The second component is vaccinating the kids.” He continued, “The third component, which he didn’t say but was implied if you’ve been infected and recovered, you’re still susceptible to reinfection, so you need to get immunized. You need to get vaccinated on top of that. That will actually — there are studies to show will build in greater resilience against variants, not...
    A WITNESS to a horrifying Black Friday shooting at a Washington mall has described how panic-stricken parents ran for their lives holding their children as gunfire erupted in the food court. Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Kobe Marsh said he had been waiting for his order inside Panera Bread at Tacoma Mall with his friend Leyla Elazmaoui when they heard a loud bang at 7.08pm. 5The shooting happened at 7.08pm at Tacoma Mall in WashingtonCredit: Facebook 5Witness Kobe Marsh recounted the terrifying scene to The SunCredit: Twitter Initially unsure what the noise was, Kobe said they quickly realized they were in imminent danger when they "heard people screaming and running for their lives."

We stood there for about three to five seconds, but when saw a stream of people running we realized it was gunshots that we'd heard." 'IT WAS TERRIFYING' Kobe said he initially heard one gunshot before a flurry of six or seven rang out. Other witnesses have claimed to have heard upwards...
    More than three-fourths of Americans are worried inflation will affect their winter, with 51 per cent concerned they 'won't be able to afford what they need during the holidays,' a new poll reveals. A Yahoo/YouGov survey taken the week before Thanksgiving shows 77 per cent of Americans feel inflation is affecting their lives – and 57 per cent blame it on President Joe Biden. Among Democratic voters, 25 per cent say Biden is not doing enough to address inflation and another 39 per cent say they aren't sure. This means that 64 per cent of the president's own party don't have much confidence in his response to the inflation crisis. Inflation is hitting three-decade highs in the midst of a supply chain issue exacerbated by worker shortages. From October 2020 until now, prices overall in the U.S. have soared by 6.2 per cent. Republicans say they feel the effects of inflation at a higher rate than Democrats. A new poll shows 77 per cent of American voters feel the affects of inflation going into the holiday season Prices at the...

    IT HAS been a story of claims and counter-claims. Of “thousands” of construction deaths. Or, as the Qatari authorities insist, less than a handful. 5The 68,000-seater Lusail Stadium will host the World Cup final in Qatar next yearCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun 5At its peak, 7,600 migrant workers helped to construct the stunning groundCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun What is absolutely clear is that the desert heat is not far from intolerable, even after the worst of the summer. It is also unquestioned that the apartment blocks for the 36,000 migrant workers from across the globe who have built the towering monuments to football’s self-regard are spartan. But while appearances can be deceptive, workers can be hand-picked, stories may not always be quite what they seem, smiles and body language are tell-tale signs of reality. And although life in the worker compounds of Doha is not, by any means, a bundle of fun, nor is it forced labour.

    But Manchin said that he did not back Califf's nomination in 2016 and he will not do so now. "Dr. Califf's nomination makes no sense as the opioid epidemic continues to wreak havoc on families across this country with no end in sight," Manchin said. "2020 was the deadliest year on record for drug related overdose deaths with 1,386 West Virginians and nearly 95,000 Americans dying from a drug related overdose. "I have made it abundantly clear that correcting the culture at the FDA is critical to changing the tide of the opioid epidemic. Instead, Dr. Califf's nomination and his significant ties to the pharmaceutical industry take us backwards not forward. His nomination is an insult to the many families and individuals who have had their lives changed forever as a result of addiction. I could not support Dr. Califf's nomination in 2016 and I cannot support it now," the senator said in the statement.

    More than half of women experienced changes to their menstrual cycle in the first year of Covid, a study has found. And the majority have also suffered a reduced sex drive.   Irish researchers, who quizzed 1,000 women, believe the stress of the pandemic is likely to blame. They said they 'unprecedented psychological burden' caused by the Covid crisis increased anxiety and depression and reduced sleep quality, which has knock-on effects on reproductive health.  Health chiefs are currently investigating reports of tens of thousands of women in the UK suffering heavier periods than usual after getting a Covid jab. Some women have complained of earlier or later periods.    A survey of more than 1,000 women by researchers in Ireland found women reported more missed periods, worse pre-menstrual symptoms and a reduced sex drive since the beginning of the pandemic RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Periods disrupted by Covid vaccines usually resort to normal...

    (AFP) Oscar-winning actor George Clooney has called on media not to publish pictures of his children, to avoid putting them in danger. The “Oceans 11” star says that as a human rights lawyer, his wife Amal Clooney takes on evil-doers, making the couple’s children potential targets for retribution. “The nature of my wife’s work has her confronting and putting on trial terrorist groups and we take as much precaution as we can to keep our family safe,” says Clooney’s open letter, which was published in Variety. “We cannot protect our children if any publication puts their faces on their cover.” The 60-year-old “Batman & Robin” star addressed his letter to “the Daily Mail and other publications”, and said he was prompted to write after seeing photographs of actress Billie Lourd’s one-year-old daughter online. Billie Lourd is Carrie Fisher’s daughter. “I am a public figure and accept the oftentimes intrusive photos as part of the price to pay for doing my job,” the letter says. “Our children have made no such commitment. “We have never sold a picture of our kids,...
    A majority of Americans believe that President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda will have either no impact or a negative impact on their lives, with a full plurality believing the impact will be negative. Meanwhile, 50 percent of Americans disapprove of President Joe Biden’s job performance. The November Emerson College national poll found that while 50 percent of Americans disapprove of Biden’s job as president, only 41 percent approve. This marks a drastic reversal from Biden’s February polling, in which 49 percent approved of his job performance, and 39 percent disapproved. Seemingly the most important in the poll, however, is a revelation regarding Biden’s agenda, which congressional Democrats are attempting to pass out of Congress again this week. Thirty-nine percent of Americans believe the Build Back Better bill would have a negative impact on their lives, while 34 percent believe that it would have a positive impact, 16 percent will believe it will have no impact, and 11 remain unsure. That means a majority–55 percent–believe that Biden’s and Democrats’ agenda will have either no or a negative impact on their...
    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more Many immigrants have stepped up on the frontline during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.  They have taken on countless roles, including roles as doctors, nurses, garbage disposal workers, and cashiers.  Recognizing their efforts, France has offered citizenship to 12,000 such workers. France’s favorable treatment of immigrants comes in stark contrast to recent U.S. policies.  Former President Trump promoted notably anti-immigrant politics, from building a wall to undermining asylum and instating the notorious “Muslim Ban”—a ban that the Supreme Court upheld in Trump v. Hawaii.  Even now, President Biden has struggled to rollback all of the Trump administration policies.  Most recently, the Biden administration rescinded a Trump-era policy that requires asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims are adjudicated.  But a Texas Federal Judge found the recision unlawful, and the Supreme Court denied the Biden administration’s application to block the Judge’s order. You can help stand up for immigrants by continuing to draw attention to France’s efforts and encouraging the Biden administration—and other countries—to follow suit.  Signing this petition...

    The interminable negotiations over Joe Biden’s Build Back Better human infrastructure plan make me feel a little like I did at this time last year, when I was still wondering if Joe Biden would see his shadow on the White House lawn or we’d get four more years of nuclear winter. It all worked out in the end. President Biden ultimately poked his head into the Oval Office, and Donald Trump’s senescent tête de fromage remains ensconced in the orange orifice, where it composes febrile, lie-filled letters to the editor to venerable, once-semi-respectable broadsheets.  Even more importantly, Republicans remain dedicated to comforting the comfortable and afflicting the afflicted—which has been their raison d’être since, well, fer-fockin’-ever. So now comes the hard part: Letting Americans know that Democrats are making their lives way easier, while Republicans are far more interested in preserving a status quo where billionaires can keep shooting dicks into space—along with the dick-shaped spacecraft that carry them.  The i’s haven’t been dotted, and the t’s haven’t been crossed. We appear to be far closer to a deal with dipshit obstructionists Sens. Joe Manchin and...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — What started out as an old truck garage is now a recovery center that helps thousands overcome their drug or alochol addiction. The Onala Recovery Center has been around since 1952 and it continues to expand, helping people reclaim their lives. “This place has really changed my life,” said Jennifer Bloodworth who is the center’s adminstrator. Bloodworth hopes to save others. Bloodworth’s drug and alcohol addiction led her to the Onala Recovery Center in 2010. “To find a place where I could not feel alone, it was a game changer,” said Bloodworth. The Center was also a safe haven for Dennis Regan in 1978, when it was just a social club for Alcoholics Anonymous. “I was able to socialize or interact with people who had years of sobriety, and those are the people that guided me into what I have found today,” said Regan, who is now the center’s director. “I know what it did for me, and I know what it can do for others,” said Regan. Bloodworth says especially at a time when overdose deaths...

    Secretaries of State and other election officials across the country are speaking out about the alarming increase in harassment and violent threats they've faced since former President Donald Trump's 2020 election loss. Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D) detailed her encounter with "armed protesters" that organized outside of her home. Following Trump's loss, protesters reportedly told Hobbs, "Katie come out and play. We are watching you." The Democratic official has also received vicious voice-mail. "You will never be safe in Arizona again," an unknown caller warned in one of the messages. Hobbs also discussed the alarming encounter. "As an elected official, I expected that sometimes I would have constituents who were unhappy with me," Hobbs said. "But I never expected that holding this office would result in far-right trolls threatening my children, threatening my husband's employment at a children's hospital or calling my office saying I deserve to die and asking, 'What is she wearing today, so she'll be easy to get.'" As Trump continued to push the "big lie," election officials on both sides of the political...

    What else? The veteran was able to pin down the previously armed suspect until deputies arrived. The suspect has been arrested and booked into the Yuma County Juvenile Justice Center for armed robbery and aggravated assault.

When asked by sheriff's deputies how he was able to take control of the situation, the veteran reportedly replied, "The Marine Corps taught me not to [mess] around."
    The Atlanta Police Department is highlighting how officers "put their lives on the line every single day" to protect the community after posting video footage of an officer who was hit by a car on a highway as he investigated a separate crash.  "We often say, ‘officers put their lives on the line every single day to protect and serve their community’-not many understand how real that statement is. Whether officers are conducting a traffic stop, serving warrants on known gang members in a dimly lit housing complex, patrolling the streets at 3 a.m., or responding to an auto accident on I285, their safety is always at risk and their bravery is always on display," the City of Atlanta Police Department posted on Facebook Tuesday, accompanied by footage of the recent crash. The footage shows Officer Steven Randerson, a nine-year veteran of the Atlanta Police Department, investigating a crash earlier this month on I-75. The officer had parked his patrol car behind the crashed vehicle, and was standing within the right shoulder of the highway.  WISCONSIN TRAFFIC STOP SHOOTOUT HIGHLIGHTS...

Authorities were checking if any hikers had been trapped or injured, officials told local media, as TV footage showed dozens of vehicles and tour buses parked at a nearby museum that has a clear view of the volcano. Pale grey torrents of ash were seen rushing down Aso's slopes towards the museum but did not reach the site.

    Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell has admitted that the popular HBO series based on her column for the New York Observer was 'not very feminist' — and she doesn't think fans should 'base their lives' on the show. The 62-year-old writer noted that while the series is 'great' and 'funny,' it's just that — a television show — and there are plenty of fans who let it 'guide' them in life when it shouldn't. 'The TV show and the message were not very feminist at the end,' she told the New York Post. 'But that’s TV. That’s entertainment. That’s why people should not base their lives on a TV show.' The 62-year-old writer said the HBO show based on her New York Observer column 'really guides' some fans but 'people should not base their lives on a TV show' 'It’s a great show, it’s really funny. But there are fans who ... it’s like, that show really guides them,' Bushnell said. 'The reality is, finding a guy is maybe not your best economic choice in the long term. Men can...

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki repeatedly criticized Republican Govs. Greg Abbott of Texas and Ron DeSantis of Florida for putting the "interests of your own politics" ahead of the "interests of the people you are governing." Psaki's comments came during Monday's White House press briefing as she suggested the administration did not plan to "sue" Abbott, DeSantis, or their states for seeking to block President Joe Biden's pending Occupational Security and Health Administration rules that would mandate large businesses to vaccinate their employees. TX GOV ISSUES ORDER BANNING ENTITIES FROM REQUIRING PROOF OF VACCINATION "Our intention is to implement and continue to work to implement these requirements across the country, including in the states where there are attempts to oppose them," the press secretary said. "I will say since you gave me the opportunity, Gov. Abbott's executive order banning mandates — and I would also note the announcement by Gov.

    Two US Capitol officers were accused of 'staring blankly at the TV' instead of helping their fellow officers during the January 6 Capitol riots.  In a 16-page letter addressed to members of the House and Senate on September 28, a whistleblower excoriated the actions of assistant chief Yogananda Pittman and acting assistant-chief Sean Gallagher. The whistleblower claimed they sat in the control room and did nothing while the Capitol was under siege and their fellow officers were injured or even killed. 'They did not try to help or assist as officers and officials were literally fighting for each other, their lives and the Congress,' the anonymous complainant wrote.   'What I observed was them mostly sitting there, blankly looking at the TV screens showing real time footage of the officers and officials fighting for the Congress and their lives,' the former department official, who said they were in the command center for much of the attack, wrote. It also alleges that the pair didn't share crucial intelligence about the riot, which they received the month before the siege, and would have...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — We often take the simple ability to move our bodies for granted, but movement can be a huge challenge for people with serious neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.

    Westend61 | Westend61 | Getty Images Let's be honest: Making personal financial decisions can be challenging. There's a variety of investment options, all of which carry some form of risk. And, of course, there are many types of retirement plans to choose from, each with their own set of tax consequences. The seemingly endless amount of choices can make it overwhelming for many investors. The bottom line is that there's an overload of investment possibilities.

    (CNN)Those on the pandemic's frontlines -- health and care workers, including nurses -- risk their lives every day to treat their patients. They face high risk of infection with Covid-19; the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated in May, almost certainly a substantial underestimate, that a stunning 115,000 or more had already died from Covid-19. By July, the death toll was estimated at 200 each and every day since the pandemic began. Tom Frieden The WHO has declared 2021 the International Year of Health and Care Workers, but to celebrate them as heroes is an empty, meaningless gesture if we continue to fail to protect them. Strive Masiyiwa In February, a year into the pandemic, a National Nurses United survey found that, even in the United States, 81% of nurses were forced to reuse personal protective equipment (PPE). Appropriate high-quality PPE remains in short supply, is non-standardized and overpriced, and is poorly designed for use in many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

    According to an analysis by the Washington Post's Aaron Blake, ongoing lawsuits and investigations into members of Donald Trump's inner circle -- as well as conspiracy-mongering conservatives -- are bringing them down to earth as the legal system takes a look at their claims and they lose court case after court case and, in some cases, face financial ruin. Noting that the Donald Trump years coincided with the rise "... of the kind of extremist purveyors of conspiracy theories who were once given the cold shoulder in polite society," Blake claimed what was once on the fringes is now part of the mainstream where it receives greater scrutiny. Writing, "Increasingly, though, a bit of a reckoning is taking place. Trump allies spouting wild, baseless theories and otherwise taking our political discourse down misinformation rabbit holes are confronting consequences in court or otherwise facing bona fide legal penalties for their actions," Blake used conservative provocateur Alex Jones as a prime example of a conservative pushing the envelope so far that it ends up in the courts with devastating results. As the...

    Friday on “CNN Newsroom,” California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) sounded off on his recently-announced mandate that school children will be required to take a coronavirus vaccine for to attend in-person classes. The order will go into effect once the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves vaccinations for that particular age group. Newsom defended the mandate, describing it as “just another of the many, many doses of vaccines that are extending” the lives of children and keeping society healthy. “Look, we already mandate 10 vaccines,” Newsom stated. “This is a significant announcement, but it’s probably the most predictable announcement. We require for mumps and measles and rubella and so many other diseases. We require vaccinations, and yet there’s something about this disease that’s become so polarized and so divisive, and it’s tragic.” “[I] think as this gets socialized, as we lean in, as more states do what California is doing, I think you’re going to see those numbers changed, that anxiety changed, but that’s that’s also — in closing — a big part of our responsibility,” he added. “Reach out to those parents, a...
    THERE may be a good reason grandma and grandpa haven't returned your phone call. A survey looked at how the sex habits of 2,000 people aged 50 and older changed and found that more than three-quarters had noticed significant changes to their sex life now compared to when they were younger (77 percent), with 45 percent saying they've had the best sex of their lives as they've aged. 3Older people are having better sex now that they're olderCredit: Getty 3They tend to experiment more these daysCredit: Getty The results showed that most respondents said they have less sex now than in their youth, citing their 30s as the time they were the most sexually active – but one in eight Americans 50 and older still have sex at least five times a week.

    (CNN)There are signs of economic trouble that should concern Democrats. Bottlenecks in the global supply chain have driven prices up and disrupted the availability of everything from nitrile gloves to cars. And things could get even worse, with the potential for the global transport system to collapse due in part to a shortage of workers, the International Chamber of Shipping and other industry groups warned in an open letter to heads of state attending the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday. Julian ZelizerThe spread of the Delta variant has devastated parts of the United States, shattering hopes that the vaccine rollout would herald a swift economic recovery this summer. Many industries are still struggling to hire and retain workers, and it's no surprise that economic confidence, as measured by Gallup, fell in September to levels not seen since early January. To be sure, this is not another Great Depression. Nor is this a recession like the one former President Barack Obama inherited after the housing market collapsed. Earlier this year, Biden provided a much-needed stimulus with the American Rescue Plan, his...
