    (CNN) — I delight in finding the perfect gift for a loved one and experience joy in thoughtful personal purchases. But I bristle against spending for the sake of spending, especially for manufactured “holidays” like Black Friday.

    Yes, little one, your life DOES matter. Friday was a horrible day for those of us who abhor the worst of this nation’s original values, norms, and laws. You know the ones—the ones that enable white men to rule over women and people of color with an iron fist, the ones that protect the wealth of the few at the expense of the masses, the ones that treat Christianity as the national religion, and the ones that keep members of the LGBTQ+ communities closeted.  Make no mistake: While that Kenosha, Wisconsin jury declared that Kyle Rittenhouse, now 18, was not guilty of murdering Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, injuring Gaige Grosskreutz, and other crimes in August 2020, their verdicts do not make that soulless, gun-toting disaster innocent. He’s just the latest killer to walk free, with a lot of help from Judge Bruce Schroeder.  In a nation where horrific violence is increasingly acceptable to one part of the country—most visibly represented by white male Christian supremacists, and the white women who will do anything to remain adjacent to their desperate, angry, and declining power—sometimes we who know the right wing is...
    EVERYONE has a different tolerance to spice - some can only handle a korma while others go for vindaloo. A doctor has a theory that this could indicate how kinky individuals are in bed. 2Spicy food lovers may secretly be kinkyCredit: Alamy 2Dr Karan Raj told his millions of followers exactly how spicy food relates to bedroom anticsCredit: TikTok @dr.karanr Spice generally is known to be helpful for fat burning, the heart and anti-ageing. It's also long been considered a sex stimulant. But Dr Karan Raj, an NHS doctor who has become a TikTok sensation, explained how people who enjoy spicy food may have masochistic tendencies. Masochism is the enjoyment of pain for sexual gratification. Speaking to his 4.4 million followers, Dr Raj said: “If you like spicy food you might be just a little bit kinky. “Spicy is not a taste. Your tongue can only taste sweet, salty, bitter, sour and umami.  “But your tongue can detect pain and temperature. “Capsaicin, the chemical found in most spicy food, binds to pain receptors in your tongue. “So...
    Men who end relationships by 'ghosting' — suddenly cutting off all communication — tend to have the dark personality traits of narcissism and psychopathy, a new study has found.  Researchers from the University of Padua surveyed 341 US adults about ghosting and tested their personality traits. They found that 51 per cent of participants reported having ghosted someone to end a past relationship. These people were more likely to exhibit Machiavellian and psychopathic traits — but not narcissistic ones.  'Ghosting may be primarily committed by people who are interested in casual sex where investment is low, and this behaviour may be linked to the dark triad traits,' said Professor Peter Jonason, who led the study.  Men who end relationships by 'ghosting' — suddenly cutting off all communication — tend to have the dark personality traits of psychopathy and Machiavellianism What is 'ghosting'?  According to Professor Jonason, ghosting 'is when a person abruptly socially disengages with someone they are romantically/sexually involved with little-to-no explanation.' The term 'ghosting' appears to have originated in the 2000s — and its apparent increasing practice has been linked to the rise...
    JOE Biden and the Democratic party are hoping to extend the expanded child tax credit payments through 2022 as part of the president's Build Back Better domestic agenda. Biden is currently negotiating the terms of the social spending bill in Congress, cutting his original price tag down from $3.5 billion down to around $2 trillion as he seeks to appease moderates and progressives alike. 2Democrats are hoping to extend expanded Child Tax Credits payments through 2022Credit: Getty 2Biden had wanted to extend them until 2025Credit: Reuters The president had previously hoped to extend the immensely popular child tax credit payments, which began in July, through to 2025. His administration also aimed to keep the boosted credit going for all families making more than $110,000, providing a maximum credit of up to $3,600 per child. But as Biden works to scale back his spending, the White House is now only seeking a one-year extension to reduce the initial $450 billion price tag, Politico reports. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, said he wants to impose work requirements and ensure the...
    Hannah Kaye (center), daughter of shooting victim Lori Gilbert Kaye, mourns at her mother's grave during a graveside service on April 29, 2019 in San Diego, California. Lori Gilbert Kaye was killed inside the Chabad of Poway synagogue on April 27 by a gunman who opened fire as worshippers attended services. On the last day of September, the antisemitic terrorist who in 2019 shot and killed Lori Gilbert Kaye and wounded three others in a Poway, California, synagogue was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. One of the wounded was Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, whose life Gilbert Kaye saved when she jumped in front of him and took the fatal bullet. After that, the terrorist turned his fire on the congregation, and 8-year-old Noya Dahan was also wounded. “He was aiming at the kids,” she stated to CNN. This could have easily ended up a mass killing as bloody as the one in 2018, where 11 Jews were murdered at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Luckily, the Poway murderer’s semi-automatic rifle stopped firing after he’d...
    (CNN)The Mediterranean diet has been an expert-recommended way of eating since it was first introduced in the 1990s, but it still holds its own with newer, trendier eating plans. And if you're moving into plant-based eating and flexitarian eating, you might be following the Mediterranean diet already without realizing it."It's lauded as one of the healthiest diets in the world," said dietician nutritionist Michelle Dudash, author of "The Low-Carb Mediterranean Cookbook: Quick and Easy High-Protein, Low-Sugar, Healthy-Fat Recipes for Lifelong Health.""And it's not an all-or-nothing set of rules," Dudash said. "It doesn't have to be all day; it doesn't have to be every week."It's not even a diet in the weight loss sense of the word. It's a way of life for people in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.In addition to incorporating foods and ingredients that are local to the region, the diet takes a broader, lifestyle-based approach that also emphasizes mindfully enjoying meals with family and friends and getting up and moving throughout the day.

    designer491 | iStock | Getty Images Retirement savers could start seeing annuities in their 401(k) plans. While allowing them in workplace retirement savings plans is not new, the 2019 Secure Act aimed to eliminate companies' fear of legal liability if the annuity provider were to fail or otherwise not meet its obligations. Now, insurance companies, asset managers and employers are moving toward making these guaranteed lifetime income options more broadly available through 401(k) and other defined contribution plans. "The Secure Act is definitely the catalyst for the activity we're seeing now coming from annuity providers as well as retirement plan providers," said Paul Richman, chief government and political affairs officer at the Insured Retirement Institute.

    Sensors on a person's smartphone can be used to determine if they're high with uncanny precision, according to a new study out of Rutgers University Researchers at the school's Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research found that an algorithm that combined sensors tracking movements and GPS location with data on the time of day and day of the week had a 90 percent accuracy rate in determining if someone was stoned. The algorithm could help law enforcement and health professionals more accurately predict if an individual is currently experiencing 'cannabis intoxication,' according to a release. 'We might be able to detect when a person might be experiencing cannabis intoxication and deliver a brief intervention when and where it might have the most impact to reduce cannabis-related harm,' said co-author Tammy Chung, director of the Institute's Center for Population Behavioral Health in the statement.  Scroll down for video Researchers have been able to create an algorithm that predicts whether a regular pot smoker is high with 90 percent accuracy.

    It's important to consume protein at the right time to achieve your specific fitness goals, an expert has revealed. Tara Kaff, Sydney sports dietitian and performance nutritionist for X50 Lifestyle, said protein is an essential macronutrient that provides a structural framework for the brain, nervous system, blood, skin, and hair. Protein should be consumed within two hours following a workout to build lean muscle, or should be consumed as a healthy snack between meals to lose weight.    In addition to eating food that's high in protein, Tara recommends using protein powder as a tool to reach fitness goals.  Protein also maintains proper pH and fluid balance, keeps your immune system strong, and helps your body with the transportation and storage of nutrients.  According to sports dietitian Tara Kaff, protein should be consumed within two hours following a workout to build lean muscle, or should be consumed as a healthy snack between meals to lose weight Tara said protein is an essential macronutrient that provides a structural framework for the brain, nervous system, blood, skin, and hair  Goal: Healthy weight loss...

    CHICAGO Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Monday proposed giving $500 a month to low-income families for a year. The "first of its kind" pilot program would offer $31.5million in cash assistance to 5,000 households. 1Chicago would offer $500 monthly payments to 5,000 families for a year It comes as part of a proposed $16.7 billion spending plan that will rely on federal funding. The first-term Democrat claimed the program would help “hard-hit, low-income households in need of additional economic stability” with universal basic income. It follows similar pilot plans in New York and California but would become the nation’s largest publicly-funded guaranteed income pilot. “This cash benefit plan for our residents, if approved, will be the largest in the history of the United States,” Lightfoot said. It will target residents who live at the poverty level based on their incomes and geography within Chicago. It will “be focused on very low-income residents who have been economically hard-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic,” the city's budget department added.

    NFL has decided to focus on making fun of the 2021 NFL season. As expected, two weeks after the campaign began, the decision to do so made waves. In the second week of the season there were several questionable jokes in the league. These calls provoked the anger of players, coaches and fans, but most did not affect the outcome of the game. The NFL mock rules are worse than the college goal rule and it is tough – Ryan Clark (@ Realrclark25) September 20, 2021 Part of the problem with the penalty was that the players and coaches wanted to know why each penalty was awarded. Officials did not elaborate much on what was acceptable and unacceptable on the pitch, which led to some disappointment. Here are some notable teasing calls and reactions from NFL Week 2 games.

    Former President Trump on Saturday hinted that he might run for president again in 2024.

    ELIGIBLE American families may be missing out on as much as $8,000 stimulus aid.  The Child Tax Credits (CTC) can support families with crucial aid as a result of the economic hardships brought on by Covid-19.  2Eligible American families may be missing out on as much as $8,000 stimulus.Credit: Getty WHAT IS CTC? The Internal Revenue Service defines the CTC as "a credit allowed for a percentage of work-related expenses that a taxpayer incurs for the care of qualifying persons to enable the taxpayer to work or look for work." Since July 15, the IRS started doling out monies to eligible families with the CTC worth as much as $300 per month for each child under 6 years old and $250 for each kid between the ages of 6 and 17. For every family earning $125,000 or less, the CTC credit will cover 50 per cent of qualifying expenses up to $8,000 associated with the care of a child under 13 or a spouse, parent or other dependent who is unable to care for themselves.  If a family is caring...
    YOU might not be able to upgrade to Windows 11 – even if you've got a "decent and recent" PC. The free update will begin rolling out later this year, but not all PCs will be able to install it. 2Windows 11 makes some major changesCredit: Microsoft Microsoft says the staggered launch kicks off on October 5. And all eligible devices will be able to upgrade by the middle of 2022. Windows 10 is already running on billions of machines globally, despite being just a few years old. Windows 11 replaces it, bringing new features and a redesigned look that’s far cleaner. But this means computers will need to be slightly more powerful to run it. Probably the easiest way to check if your computer can run Windows 11 is to download Microsoft’s own app. Most read in TecHSPEED FREAK Elon Musk teases 'world's FASTEST car Tesla Roadster' with 0-60 in 1.9 secondsI-SCROLL Youngsters warn they're 'ADDICTED' to phones losing nearly a DAY scrolling weeklyHIGH TECH ID Apple rolling out DIGITAL driver's licenses for iPhone and Apple Watch walletsCRUST IN TIME...
    State Department spokesperson Ned Price and Associated Press reporter Matt Lee sparred on Friday during the department’s press briefing amid the ongoing situation in the Afghan capital of Kabul. Lee asked if there has been a decision over who will control the airport in Kabul, from where there have been evacuations of Americans and Afghan allies, once the United States leaves. “I know there’s been intense interest in the airport, so let me just spend a moment on that,” said Price. Lee was having none of it. “Maybe if someone else wants to hear all that. I just want to know if there’s a decision,” he said as Price smirked. “Yes or no.” Seconds later, Price said, “I assume as a journalist you might be interested in hearing the context here.” “But the point is that–” Price said as Lee tried to interject. “Upon our departure we will transfer the airport back to the Afghan people.” “So it is not for us to decide. This is, we are undertaking,” continued Price before Lee interrupted with “that’s not what I’m asking.”...
    CYBER SECURITY experts warned yesterday of a dodgy version of WhatsApp that exposes its users to hackers.

    A report from the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has bacon lovers up in arms. And rightly so. According to the scientific findings of the organization, processed meats like bacon, ham, and sausage cause cancer. Specifically, consuming two slices of bacon can increase your risk of developing colorectal cancer by 18 percent. And the risk only increases the more you consume. Given its high carcinogenic potential, processed meat joins the ranks of plutonium and alcohol as things that definitely do cause cancer in the IARC’s book. One association that has also been made it between eating bacon and hot dogs and smoking cigarettes. While it is impossible to make a direct comparison just as this one, there is no questioning that both of these practices are detrimental to your health. And another similarity that these two things hold is the equally damaging effect that they have on not just humans, but the environment as well – leading to the conclusion that smoking and eating bacon are both terrible for you and the planet. Although,...

    One evening last fall, after his three young children went to bed, Joseph Arriaga sat at his laptop and sent a Facebook message to a stranger. “Hello Robert. My name is Joseph,” it began. “I was born in 1992.” So many of Arriaga’s defining memories had built toward this message. There was the time, around third grade, when a cousin blurted that Arriaga wasn’t truly part of their family. The strained follow-up conversations with his mother. His recent gamble in mailing a sample of saliva to Ancestry.com. In launching his search, Arriaga, 29, was trying to sort out truth from family folklore, attempting to verify or disprove a story about his paternity — a story that had filled him with anger and shame for years. Would a DNA match lead him to a dead man or a felon, or perhaps to a friendly face whose features he’d recognize as his own? Or would he find anyone at all? But now, in the evening stillness of his Riverside home, Arriaga stared down at a man’s profile picture on Facebook and...
    "Joe Biden is done coddling conservatives and their anti-vaccine bulls**t," the headline of a recent Vanity Fair article blared. That article had riffed off a report from Politico that stated: "The Biden administration is casting conservative opponents of its COVID-19 vaccine campaign as dangerous and extreme, adopting a more aggressive political posture in an attempt to maneuver through the public health conundrum." Still another report from the Intelligencer stated, "The willfully unvaccinated are the newest Republican martyrs." Just a brief survey of the media landscape surfaces countless more articles and soundbites making essentially the same claim: Conservatives are the ones refusing the vaccine and subsequently prolonging the nation's recovery from the virus. But is that actually the case? According to new data from the Kaiser Family Foundation, it appears no, at least not entirely. The health policy think tank published studies on COVID-19 vaccinations by race, ethnicity, and age recently that seemed to suggest that traditionally Democratic groups — blacks, Hispanics, and young people — are the ones not getting vaccinated.With growing spread of the Delta variant, COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations,...

It's sensible to keep doing this where possible or asked BUT, if you are re-wearing the same mask regularly you could get into some hay fever trouble. Prof Fox told AEG: "Though masks form a barrier when it comes to...
    The Islanders should be sending the Bruins a thank you for the Carlo deal Rob Taub July 15, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The Islanders’ offseason is set to be a difficult one in a number of ways. One of the biggest will be getting RFA Adam Pelech extended. General Manager Lou Lamoriello made it crystal clear a few weeks ago he had all the intention of getting his restricted free agents — Pelech, Anthony Beauvillier, and Ilya Sorokin — re-signed, thus avoiding the situation he was forced into last offseason when he traded Devon Toews to Colorado. Pelech is obviously the top priority on that list. He’s the Isles’ best defenseman and established himself as an elite defender in the NHL over the past three seasons. So there’s no doubt that he is going to get a lofty raise from the $1.6M he was making in this last contract. With the news that came out of Boston yesterday — the Bruins announced they...
    A photo of a person's inner eyelid taken with a standard smartphone camera can be used to screen for anaemia, a new study claims. Researchers in Rhode Island developed an artificial intelligence (AI) powered model to analyse photos of the inside of people's lower eyelids, known as the palpebral conjunctiva, which appears paler with anemia. The technology could power an app that determines if someone has anaemia through smartphone photos, instead of blood tests, the experts claim.   Anaemia, commonly caused by a shortage of iron in your body, is a deficiency in the number or quality of red blood cells in your body.   Red blood cells contain hemoglobin, which carries oxygen – and without enough hemoglobin and oxygen, the skin can turn a pale colour.  Scroll down for video  A photo of a person's inner eyelid taken with a standard smartphone camera can be used to screen for anaemia, researchers in Rhode Island report.

    BY now we've all heard the phrase "pandemic pounds" and while some people might be content with gaining weight, others might choose to lose it. If you're trying to lose weight then it's likely you've swapped your crisps and other snacks for so-called "healthy" or "low fat" options - but one expert has now revealed that these foods could be doing more harm than good. 3If you're struggling to lose weight then it could be down to the so-called healthy foods you are havingCredit: Getty - Contributor Dr Michael Mosley, author of the Fast 800 said it can often become confusing to know exactly which foods are healthy when you’re navigating the supermarket. He explained: "With huge signs at the end of each aisle, telling you exactly why the latest products will turn your health around, it’s easy to fall into their well set traps and spend a fortune on “healthy” foods that are not so healthy." While we should all have a little bit of what we fancy from time to time, if we're over indulging - it's likely...
    Netflix viewers have been set alight by a raunchy new series called Sex/Life. It explores the torment of a young mother who finds herself fantasising about the fruity sexual freedom of her single years — and questioning the validity of her happy but sexually mundane married life. The programme has shot to No 1 on the site, resonating with midlife women wondering how different life might be if they too had access to the high-octane couplings of their earlier years. This is one of the big relationship questions Dr Gary Lewandowski raises in an exciting new book called Stronger Than You Think. With 20 years’ experience as a relationship scientist, the award-winning psychology professor has identified key relationship misconceptions that could spell doom for your marriage. He also offers nuggets of research-backed advice about how to fix them. ‘No relationship will ever be perfect,’ he says. ‘Your partner won’t always be nice, happy, funny or attractive, and they can’t entirely avoid being annoying or grumpy.’ Sex, says Dr Lewandowski, is a thorny and ever-present issue. ‘Those of us who worry...
    'I was so envious of the other girls who had boyfriends and were able to experiment with sex without hating themselves afterwards. 'Three therapists and two husbands later, I still can’t orgasm. 'I left the church because I didn’t want my daughter to grow up like I did: fearful of men and terrified of sex.' Did you grow up in a strict, religious household? If the answer is yes, it’s highly likely you experience some kind of sexual shame. Feeling shameful or guilty for wanting or enjoying sex makes it almost impossible to have a healthy, well-adjusted sex life and relationship. But it’s not just religious or conservative parents who instill negative messages about sex in their children. Sex expert Tracey Cox talks to women who struggle with feelings of shame and guilt in bed. Pictured, stock image You might have had a mum or dad who were promiscuous in their past and a little overly zealous about warning you against the possible consequences. Rape or sexual abuse can obviously leave us feeling highly distressed about sex, making it...

    ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith frequently advocates for more Black head coaches and executives in the NBA. Now he’s calling out the hypocrisy of NBA players, who speak out for social equality, but ignore the issue within their own sport. During Wednesday’s First Take on ESPN, Smith stormed off set shortly after the Boston Celtics announced they were promoting head coach Brad Stevens to team president. Smith used it as another example of favoritism toward White coaches and executives in the NBA. “I wasn’t even getting on the owners or the teams, I was really pointing the finger at the NBA players who sit idly by and say nothing,” Smith said Thursday as he explained why he walked off set in frustration 24 hours earlier. “They should be ashamed of themselves. ASHAMED. No heart,” he later added. “We wanna speak about police brutality, fine. We wanna speak about social justice, racial inequality, great,” Smith said. “But the reason why some people, even though they may not acknowledge it enough, they were wrong to do it, because don’t you dare tell us...

    NASA's new James Webb Space Telescope may be able to detect evidence of artificial light on the nearby exoplanet Proxima b, astronomers predict. The study, by a team  including controversial Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb, suggests that the optical telescope can be configure to spot evidence of LED light on the planet Proxima b, orbiting Proxima Centauri 4.2 light years from the Earth.  Proxima b was discovered in 2016 and is thought to be a rocky terrestrial planet slightly larger than the Earth, that some scientists predict could contain liquid water.  It orbits very close to its small red dwarf star, so is likely to be tidally locked with a permanent night side, and Loeb suggests a civilisation may deploy powerful mirrors or require very bright LED-style lights to illuminate their cities.    They suggest that using the near infrared instrument on the James Webb telescope and looking for the telltale signs of LED light waves in the light from the planet and its host star, they will be able to detect this artificial light if it exists.  Artist's rendering of...
    Being in a good mood typically makes people feel like they are on cloud nine, but studies suggests the boost can clout their judgement.  The upbeat sensation can cause people to accept first impressions of someone else or an event, without challenging it, which could set them up for failure later down the road. Australian psychologist Joseph Forgas conducted a study where subjects read a short philosophical essay with a picture showing either an older man or a younger woman. The research analyzed whether or not a good mood would have a bias effect on thinking – and it did. Those feeling positive enjoyed the essay more when believing it came from the man, while those in the negative category felt about the same for both.  Forgas once wrote: 'The same smile that is seen as friendly by a person in a good mood may be judged as awkward when the observer is in a negative mood; discussing the weather could be seen as 'poised' when the person is in a good mood but 'boring' when that person is in...
