Shows that survived major cast changes and kept going The TV industry is a star-driven business, but that doesn't mean stars are absolutely necessary.

Sometimes it doesn't even matter if the star's name is in...
    With cuffing season in full swing, singletons everywhere will be coupling up with new partners ready to flaunt their budding relationships on Instagram.  But if you've noticed your partner is hesitant to show you off to their friends and family online, you could be victim of 'pocketing' - where a person refuses to acknowledge their relationship on social media.   The term means a new partner is actively avoiding acknowledging your existence online and is going out of their way not to introduce you to any of their friends and family.   While it doesn't necessarily mean that the person is cheating, relationship expert at eharmony Rachael Lloyd says those who do it often want to reap the benefits of a relationship while also living a 'single life online'. For example the person 'pocketing' their partner may want to like certain photographs or send messages to other social media users without them knowing they're in a relationship.  Relationship expert at eharmony Rachael Lloyd claimed those who 'pocket' their partners are doing so as a 'power play' and will often want to reap...
    The Catholic bishops of the United States have paved the way for President Joe Biden to continue receiving Holy Communion despite his opposition to some tenets of Catholic social teaching. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops voted 222-8-3 Wednesday to adopt a document that did not address whether those who advocate for widespread access to abortions, such as Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, both of whom are Catholic, could be denied the sacrament of Holy Communion. "Since the conclusion of the Spring Plenary Assembly of the U.S. bishops last week, there has been much attention on the vote taken to draft a document on the Eucharist. The question of whether or not to deny any individual or groups Holy Communion was not on the ballot," the conference said of the vote. POPE FRANCIS APPOINTS NUN TO SECOND-HIGHEST VATICAN POSITION While the draft, as passed, does not mention the president or any politician or single out abortion as a political issue, it does emphasize the obligations of Catholic public figures to be morally consistent...
    (CNN)The coronavirus numbers don't look so good this week. New Covid-19 diagnoses are up in about half of US states over the past week. Hospitalizations are up in 11 states, and deaths have risen in 17 states.US coronavirus cases have plateaued in recent weeks, holding on to about half of the growth from this summer's latest surge.While new cases have fallen in some states, they're rising in others, particularly some region's cold-weather states. Republicans seize on federal vaccine mandates to fire up their base and try to court new voters worried about the economy Southern states that were a large driving force behind this summer's surge now have some of the lowest case rates. Two months ago, Florida and Texas together accounted for nearly a quarter (22%) of all new cases. Now, those two large states account for just 6% of all cases.Florida sliced new cases to a 10th of what they were two months ago and Texas to a fifth.Read MoreThat should sound like good news. But with less dramatic decreases in other, less populous states -- and slight...
    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy released a video decrying a provision that was cut from the Build Back Better plan two weeks ago. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy posted a video on Tuesday attacking a supposed provision in President Joe Biden's jobs plan that McCarthy said would let the government "spy on your bank account." But the measure is not actually in the $1.75 trillion proposal pending in Congress. "What's in the Democrats' Socialist Spending Scam?" the California Republican tweeted as he shared the 73-second video. "87,000 new IRS agents to spy on your bank account. It's invasive, unconscionable, and will impact nearly every American—but it's a feature of their enormously wasteful spending package." When Biden and congressional Democrats agreed on a $1.75 trillion compromise framework in late October to invest in climate change and caregiving infrastructure, they dropped the idea entirely. The bill advanced by the House on Nov. 5 includes no new bank data reporting requirements. The video features clips of McCarthy and allies at his Oct. 28 "roundtable" event...
    One in a million: The ultimate Aaliyah playlist How Much Does a Costco Membership Really Save You? © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said that safety Marcus Maye has an Achilles injury and he wasn’t optimistic about the outlook after Thursday night’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. “It doesn’t look good,” Saleh said, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. Maye was playing out this season on the franchise tag for the Jets and was not moved at the trading deadline earlier this week despite speculation he would be dealt. Maye had racked up 46 tackles in his six games played this season for New York before he was forced from Thursday night’s game against the Colts due to the injury. “Marcus was kind of that settling force back there and obviously a heck of a football player,” Saleh said. “I’m more concerned for Marcus than I am what we’ll do defensively to try to fill that void because he’s a fantastic young man, he’s...
    When she was elected lieutenant governor on Tuesday, Republican Winsome Sears became the first woman and first Black candidate elected to statewide office in Virginia. Her victory has been touted by some conservatives as evidence that racism is not a factor in the Virginia elections, which saw Republicans take the governorship and the House of Delegates. On Thursday night, Joy Reid said Virginia’s Republican voters shouldn’t get credit for electing a person of color because her opponent is also a person of color. Democrat Hala Ayala is a Latina with African roots and is also part Lebanese . “What Republicans are now doing is they basically demand credit any time any of them ever voted for anybody Black or if there’s a Black guy on the Supreme Court that’s conservative,” said Reid. “Any Black conservative is supposedly or the Black president having ever been elected, right? The fact that he was elected, period, means there’s no racism.” She continued, “The two choices voters had in Virginia were a Black woman who shares my daughter’s name and Jamaican heritage, and an...
    Iconic western starring Clint Eastwood dubbed in Navajo The co-founder of Binance talks regulation, global growth of crypto markets, and the firms search for a physical headquarters From the league's crackdown on foul baiting and non-basketball moves by offensive players to pleas to eliminate the "take fouls" that have been preventing fastbreaks, rule changes have been one of the biggest topics of conversation over the first few weeks of this new NBA season.  © Provided by CBS Sports During the Golden State Warriors' 114-92 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night, we saw an example of another play that the league should try to eliminate.  Early in the fourth quarter, LaMelo Ball was being hounded by Juan Toscano-Anderson near midcourt. After nearly losing control of the ball, he regathered and gained a step on the overeager Warriors defender. Seeing an open lane ahead of him, Ball burst towards the rim with thoughts of a poster dunk. Instead, he quickly came crashing back down to earth and landed awkwardly on his arm and side.  That's because Steph Curry came...
    The most memorable songs from 90s movies 50 Banks Enabling the Single-Use Plastic Crisis © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Browns coach Kevin Stefanski had to earn his coach of the year trophy after the fact on Wednesday, dealing with a flurry of questions from reporters about receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Here’s one specific question he was asked: Did you tell the players that Odell is not part of the team anymore? Stefanski didn’t deny it, either with a perfunctory comment or a Mike Tomlin mic drop. Instead, here’s what Stefanski said: “I would just tell you, again, today he’s excused, and we’ll see where this goes.” That’s telling. Very telling. Stefanski was asked whether he told the team that Odell is no longer part of it, and Stefanski didn’t deny it. That’s basically an admission. And, indeed, a league source tells PFT that Stefanski did indeed make that statement to the team today. It’s also telling that Stefanski said he hasn’t spoken to Beckham in the last 24 hours....

    The mayor of St. Louis did not flinch during a press conference when gunfire erupted nearby, saying she was unfortunately used to it. Mayor Tishaura Jones was speaking to the press on Friday about her and Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas' efforts to reduce violent crime following a roundtable discussion about public safety when what sounded like gunfire went off nearby.   But Jones did not miss a beat and sarcastically responded 'Oh isn't that wonderful,' before getting back to the topic at hand.   Scroll Down For Video:   St. Louis mayor Tishaura Jones' reaction when gunshots rang out during a press conference  Mayor Tishaura Jones (right) was speaking to the press on Friday about her and South City with Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas (left) efforts to reduce violent crime A St. Louis police officer walks past an evidence marker near the scene of a fatal shooting in June  YouTube Privacy Policy She explained that because she was born and raised in St. Louis, the sound of gunfire barely has an effect on her anymore.  'Well I hear gunshots...
    (CNN)Before getting to "Army of Thieves," it's fair to ask why Netflix and producer Zack Snyder felt compelled to make a prequel to the zombie/heist mashup "Army of the Dead," which doesn't really demand its own cinematic universe. This more conventional heist yarn somewhat stands alone, but hardly feels like it has the right combination to merit this exercise.The main holdover from the first film is German actor/director Matthias Schweighöfer, who played the safecracker Dieter, and not only stars in the film but directs it.The main asset, however, is Nathalie Emmanuel (of "Game of Thrones" and "Fast & Furious"), who makes the most of her turn as the deadly brains of the outfit, Gwendoline, who recruits Schweighöfer's character to help crack a trio of legendary safes.Dieter is clearly over his head in Gwendoline's eccentric band -- and amusingly prone to letting out piercing screams during moments of danger -- but he does have a knack for safecracking, an art illustrated by taking the viewer into the mechanism as only special effects can. That gets old pretty fast, which leaves behind...
    DEAR ABBY: I have recently unearthed some of my old journals. Jeanne Phillips  In them I wrote honestly about my life — my kids, husband, pets, etc. They were a way to vent as well as to describe what my days were like as I kept a home, gardened, worked full time, cared for the kids, etc. A few of the entries concern my spouse who I’m still married to, and they are not flattering. They describe his refusal to help with the chores, his secretive drinking and almost bankrupting us more than once. There are also stories about my children (who are now in their 40s) as children.

    I’ve been writing books for more than 20 years and – rather horrifyingly – some of what I’ve written in the first few is no longer true. And possibly never was. Sex research is big business these days. Which means researchers now have the time and money to go back and trace where the original ‘evidence’ to support these claims came from. In an alarming number of cases, there isn’t any. A lot of the things we thought we knew about sex have no proof to back them up. We assume it’s fact simply because we’ve seen or heard it said so many times. Here’s the latest sex myths to bite the dust. Tracey Cox debunks six myths, as it's revealed a lot of the things we thought we knew about sex have no proof to back them up (file image) No-one actually knows what the average penis size is Yep.

                      by Kaylee Greenlee  Texas Republicans described President Joe Biden’s immigration policies as reckless and criticized him for claiming that he has been too busy to visit the southern border since taking office in January. Biden said Thursday night that he “should go down [to visit the border] but the whole point of it is I haven’t had a whole hell of a lot of time to,” during a CNN town hall. The last time Biden was near the border was when he flew into an airport in El Paso, Texas, where his motorcade took him to New Mexico for a campaign event in 2008, according to The Washington Post. “President Biden’s reckless open border policies have created an absolute crisis along our southern border as cartels and smugglers overwhelm and divert our nation’s resources to smuggle in drugs, weapons, criminals, and other contraband,” Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press secretary Renae Eze told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Claiming he hasn’t had time to visit the border in over 44 years in public office, including now...

    More than 23 years after the television premiere of Sex and the City, Candace Bushnell, the bestselling author and creator of her iconic alter ego Carrie Bradshaw, is ready to talk about if there is still sex in the city. According to HBO, the answer is definitely yes—the highly anticipated revival of the beloved SATC series is in full swing, with leaks galore and a recently announced premiere date of December. But Bushnell wants to pose that question directly to the people of New York with a one-woman show that kicks off the same month. It’s a full-circle moment for Bushnell, 62, who moved to New York City at the age of 19 with just $20 to her name and dreams of being an actress. Those hopes were short-lived: as Bushnell readily admits, she wasn’t a great actor and couldn’t fathom how she would turn it into a stable career. So, she pursued writing instead and ended up with her own column in The New York Observer in 1994, which focused on her dating life. Not wanting her various sexcapades...
    When Jacqueline Durran, the Oscar-winning costume designer who dressed Kristen Stewart for the upcoming Princess Diana fantasy biopic Spencer, worked on fittings with her lead star, they met in a building in central London where huge windows opened up with clear visibility to the streets below. “Anyone could have looked up, or the paparazzi could have gathered outside, but no one ever noticed,” Durran told The Daily Beast. “And I really liked that—no one ever looked up. The thing that people would chase Diana around London for, trying to get a picture of, is right there for them. But they just didn’t see it.” She considers this fact a little gift from the spirit of Diana, who died in 1997 at the age of 36. Spencer, directed by Pablo Larraín, is an artistic rendering of Diana’s torturous final Christmas with Prince Charles, spent with the royal family at Sandringham House in 1991. As Diana traditionalists have noted online, the film is not for those who live and die by the sword of historical accuracy. It’s a poetic portrayal of...
    Prince William and Kate Middleton are 'normalising the lives of Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis' so their youngest 'doesn't go down the Duke of York path' of being a 'royal hanger-on', a royal expert has claimed.  The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 39, are currently living in their London home of Kensington Palace with their children Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three.  Speaking to The Telegraph, Camilla Tominey said while George 'has his destiny mapped out' as heir to the throne,  the couple were determined to 'get the balance right' with their two youngest children. Suggesting Charlotte and Louis could 'have their own careers' away from royal life, she said: '[Kate and William] don't want history to repeat itself and Prince Louis seem like a royal hanger-on and go down the Duke of York path.'   Prince Andrew is currently being sued in New York by Virginia Giuffre. She claims he sexually abused her on three separate occasions when she was 17 — in London, New York and on billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein 's Caribbean island.  Andrew, 61, who...
    A protester carries a sign that reads during the Black Women Matter "Say Her Name" march on July 3, 2020, in Richmond, Virginia. by Ray Levy Uyeda This story was originally published at Prism. One year after the George Floyd uprisings that prompted a nationwide reevaluation of what role police actually play in upholding public safety, cities are backtracking on moves to redirect funds from municipal police budgets. In response to the uprisings, civil rights activists, community organizations, and protesters demanded that officials defund police budgets, which often account for significant portions of city spending and eclipse funding for local programs, schools, and libraries. Now, some local governments are restoring police budgets that had been recently cut, and some departments are receiving additional funding based on the claim that a nationwide increase in crime demands an increased police presence. In Austin, after vowing to cut funding by $100 million, the city council increased the police budget to a record $442 million. The New York Times recently wrote about how departments felt pressure to increase police funding, in some cases offering signing bonuses, in response to the...
    CNN host Jake Tapper grilled White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday over White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain endorsing a tweet by a former senior Obama economic adviser stating that current economic problems are “high class problems.” Jason Furman, who served as chair of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Barack Obama, tweeted on Wednesday, “Most of the economic problems we’re facing (inflation, supply chains, etc.) are high class problems. We wouldn’t have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10 percent.

    Don Bayley | Vetta | Getty Images This week's announcement of the highest Social Security cost-of-living adjustment since 1982 was welcome news for retirees. It will help alleviate the financial pinch many are feeling. Beneficiaries in 2022 will receive a 5.9% boost to their checks. That's up from a 1.3% benefit increase for 2021. Even so, a 5.9% increase will only bring about a $92 increase to the average monthly retirement benefit. In the past 10 years, the average increase was 1.65%, according to the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. In three of the past 12 years, the COLA was zero. "When you talk to a lot of retirees, they will very quickly complain about, 'Oh, my inflation rate is higher than what the government says it is,'" said James Angel, associate professor of finance at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business.VIDEO1:4301:43Social Security COLA in 2022: How much more money you will see in your checkInvest in You: Ready.

    (CNN)"Halloween Kills" is a strange name for a 43-year-old franchise that positively refuses to die. Then again, this 12th film in the series -- a direct sequel to the 2018 reset "Halloween" -- is odd on various levels, starting with the wholly misguided attempt to weave a half-baked message into its bloody mayhem.Another title delayed by Covid, the Universal release will also be same-day available on the studio's streaming service Peacock, testing the power of horror as a shared experience to overcome the at-home option.Seeing the movie in a theater, however, merely reinforces how clunky it feels, creating uncomfortable moments where the audience seemingly doesn't quite know whether to laugh with it in its nods to the franchise's history or laugh at it, ultimately the prevailing sensation.If the previous movie conjured a bit of excitement by eradicating everything that had transpired after the original, that sense of novelty has quickly worn off.Instead, in a narrative flourish not helped by extra time on the shelf, the action picks up immediately after the scenario presented in 2018, when Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee...
    Washington, DC (CNN)Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said the company will roll out the latest beta version of its "full self-driving" software to 1,000 owners this weekend.Yet there aren't actually any self-driving cars for sale today, according to autonomous vehicle experts and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which regulates cars. Tesla's "full self-driving" is more like an enhanced cruise control, they say. Videos posted on the internet by people who already have the feature unlocked show that it might stop for traffic lights and turn smoothly at intersections, but it also might veer toward pedestrians or confuse the moon for a traffic signal.Tesla says that a human driver needs to be watching and ready to take over at any moment, and the company is only allowing initial access to the system to the people it considers the safest drivers. Teslas full self-driving could be days away. Heres what you need to know.Despite those limits, Tesla is free to call its technology "full self-driving." Tesla owners who download the "full self-driving" beta must check a box confirming that they understand...
    The White House toughened on Friday President Joe Biden's response to protesters cornering Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema in a bathroom. "He believes that what happened to her crossed the line and was flat-out unacceptable," press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters at the briefing. BIDEN WOBBLES ON THE FILIBUSTER, AGAIN She added, "It doesn't need to happen that way." Psaki's condemnation was firmer than the one she and Biden offered earlier this week after demonstrators followed Sinema, a critical Democratic vote, into a bathroom at Arizona State University, where she guest lectures. People approached on her flight to Washington, D.C., and at Reagan National Airport as well. Tensions within the Democratic Party have risen as lawmakers try to pass the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal and the $3.5 trillion partisan social welfare and climate proposal. Sinema, along with centrist West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, has blocked the latter until the price tag drops. Biden "wants to move forward as quickly as possible," but Psaki declined to set another deadline after Democrats missed one for the bipartisan package last week....
    A FURIOUS motorist claims he was handed a parking ticket from a "plain clothes" warden who was hiding behind a tree on a road that doesn't technically exist. Hitesh Pabari, from Harrow, London, has been locked in a five-month dispute with the council after refusing to cough up for the penalty. 2Hitesh Pabari has compiled a folder full of reasons why he should not have been given the fineCredit: BPM He has even compiled an entire folder of evidence cataloguing the reasons why he should not have been given the fine in May in the first place.

Furthermore, he says she failed to even sign the ticket he was handed. "The lady (parking officer) was waiting behind a tree hiding out of sight so she could issue me...

    Tom Brady made clear he was focused on getting a victory when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers played the New England Patriots on Sunday night. He kept his emotions in check throughout the week and even met with Bill Belichick in private after the game.

    The 25 best episodes of Parks and Recreation The 13 Best Home Improvement Projects That You Can Do Yourself This Fall © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad The Broncos and the Ravens quickly have become a must-see rivalry, thanks to the various beefs arising from Sunday’s game. Among the points of contention, the Ravens believe that the officials should have thrown a flag after Broncos defensive tackle Mike Purcell hit quarterback Lamar Jackson in the lower back. More generally, coach John Harbaugh believes Jackson gets less protection than he should, because he’s a running quarterback. “All the quarterbacks should be treated the same,” Harbaugh said Monday, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com. “I don’t think any quarterback should be judged any differently in terms of how they’re protected. That’s for sure.” He’s right. Quarterbacks in the pocket have maximum protection. They lose some of the protections when they exit the pocket. They lose all of the protections when they take off and run. Still, Jackson is getting less protection in the...
    Fashion house Dolce and Gabbana sold $5.7 million worth of clothing and jewelry despite some of it existing only as a digital file. The Collezione Genesi collection designed by Italian fashion icons Domenico Dolce comprised nine pieces. All were offered as non-fungible tokens - original digital files which cannot be traded, and which are increasingly seen as a viable form of art. Five were also offered in physical form - two dresses, a suit, and two jewel-studded crowns. Buyers of the digital-only items were also offered an 'experiential' purchase, such as a trip to the fashion giant's design studios.    The most valuable piece of clothing sold at the auction was the 'green glass suit' that sold for $1,199,916.01 at the online auction, or 351.384 in cryptocurrency ether, known as ETH, according to the UNXD site, which ran the auction.  That suit was bought by London-based e-commerce firm Boson Protocol. Boson Protocol now owns the original digital file showing an electronic video of the suit, worn in the clip by an eerie, faceless silver mannequin. The firm, co-founded by Justin Banon...
    "I prayed a lot to God during this time and you know what, God did answer our prayers," Hochul said while standing behind a church pulpit. "He made the smartest men and women, the scientists, the doctors, the researchers — he made them come up with a vaccine. That is from God to us and we must say, 'Thank you, God. Thank you.'" And then the kicker: "I need you to be my apostles." Now that seems to be the exact kind of talk that convinced 20, er, we will call them "pilots in training" to move to America and subsequently fly planes loaded with innocent Americans into the Twin Towers right there in New York. Heck, we even just got done celebrating the 20th anniversary of that horrible day. And yet your governor gets to say that to you without even a hint of déjà vu? Wow. I'm old enough to remember when the mere image of President Trump standing in front of a vandalized Washington, D.C., church while holding a Bible sent "separation of church and state" types...
    A WOMAN has left people in hysterics with her list of things she doesn’t understand - and people say she’s got a valid point. Katie Pearce took to social media where she listed the seven things that she finds most confusing in life. 2Katie Pearce has left people in hysterics over the things she doesn't understandCredit: katie.pearce/TikTok 2Though many agreed that Katie has a pointCredit: katie.pearce/TikTok The first thing that Katie admits to being baffled by is the wind, saying, “What, how is it? What is wind? I don’t get it never will.” Continuing her list of confusion, Katie says: “Money. Why don’t they just print off/ Why? Then no one would be poor? I just don’t get it. “The world. How is it one of the smallest planets but then 9 billion people live on it and animals. Don’t get it, how, why? “Electricity. I know it comes from the pylones but how does it get to the pylones? Bit confusing will never understand that.” Moving on Katie goes on to offer up an alternative for what we call...
    Mark Milley assured House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that former President Donald Trump could not launch an off-the-cuff nuclear strike when she called for his authorities to be limited after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, the Joint Chiefs chairman revealed Tuesday. Milley, whom Trump recently suggested is a "dumba**," detailed a call he had with Pelosi on Jan. 8, two days after the Capitol riot. During the call, he told her only the president has the ability to authorize a nuclear launch but that he "doesn't launch them alone." A memo Milley provided to the Senate Armed Services Committee said Pelosi's office requested the call with him citing "urgent matters," during which Pelosi broached the question of the president's ability to launch nuclear weapons. MILLEY SAYS TRUMP OFFICIALS KNEW OF SCRUTINIZED CALLS TO CHINA “I sought to assure her that nuclear launch is governed by a very specific and deliberate process. She was concerned and made various personal references characterizing the president,” Milley told the committee on Tuesday. “I explained to her that...
    It seems as though posing as a YouTube executive to trick investors is not the only act of apparent deception OZY’s management has attempted to pull off in recent months. As it turns out, the embattled media company has also seemingly engaged in misleading marketing tactics, including boasting that the Los Angeles Times called OZY founder and CEO Carlos Watson’s YouTube show the “most important show of 2020” when, in fact, the paper says it has no record of ever doing so. And that’s not the only time OZY has boasted of outside media praise that appears to not exist. On Sunday, New York Times media columnist Ben Smith shed light on dubious tactics employed by OZY, a multimedia company that launched in 2013 as a millennial-focused outlet and whose resilience has perplexed observers in an unforgiving digital-media ecosystem that has challenged and sunk other more well-known publications. OZY’s chief operating officer Samir Rao, Smith reported, posed as a YouTube executive during a crucial business meeting with Goldman Sachs officials, who were close to making a $40 million investment in...
    On Monday’s broadcast of “Fox News Primetime,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) stated that President Joe Biden’s claim that the $3.5 trillion spending bill doesn’t cost anything shows a “lack of understanding about basic economics” and is like saying that when you buy something, if you pay for it, then it doesn’t cost anything. Crenshaw said, “It’s not free. Nothing is free, Brian, and I’m sorry, but I can’t give you a good explanation for this. Because there isn’t one. And I’ll tell you what, it’s also well above $3 trillion. I mean, the new estimates on it, based on actually going through it in the Budget Committee are almost $4.5 trillion, and there’s only about $2 trillion in tax increases. So, I know math is hard for Democrats and especially so for the ones who govern, but this math doesn’t work out. The other really interesting thing about this is their lack of understanding about basic economics. Biden said it cost zero dollars. That’s like saying when I go buy a cup of coffee, just because I pay for it,...

View the original article to see embedded media.Rob Gronkowski told Peyton and Eli Manning on ESPN2's broadcast of Monday Night Football earlier this week that he doesn't watch any film. But the Buccaneers tight end, as it turns out, was just joking around.  Gronkowski clarified Wednesday that he doesn't just get tips about the game plan from Tom Brady, and that he does in fact watch film before games. "I actually watch tons of film. An overload of film. I will probably blame [PR director] Nelson [Luis] over there. He asked me eight times to go on the show. I told him, 'It's not a good idea.' They always get me in that type of silly atmosphere and that's what happened," Gronkowski said jokingly, per ESPN. "Now Coach [Bruce Arians] threatened me. I...
    A 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV caught fire at a home in Cherokee County, Georgia on Sept. 13, 2021, according to the local fire department.Cherokee County Fire Department DETROIT – As General Motors scrambles to repair defects that caused fires in at least 13 Chevrolet Bolt EVs, the automaker is aggressively working to ensure the same problems don't seep into their next-generation Ultium batteries and its highly anticipated relaunch of an all-electric version of the Hummer this fall. The new power system is crucial to the automaker's future as it pivots to exclusively offer electric vehicles by 2035. The batteries and the company's entire Ultium system – platforms, motors and other components – are expected to underpin every EV for GM for the foreseeable future. Problems with the Bolt – the company's flagship mainstream EV – have led the automaker to recall every one of the electric cars since production began in 2016. Fixing the vehicles, including completely replacing some batteries entirely, is expected to cost $1.8 billion. That cost – averaging roughly $13,000 per vehicle – highlights a gamble...
    (CNN)When South Carolina lawyer Alex Murdaugh appeared in court Thursday on fraud charges, his lawyer spoke of his life deteriorating and his opioid addiction spiraling. But the lawyer for a family suing Murdaugh said they were "casting a defense that doesn't exist."Eric Bland, who is representing the estate of Murdaugh's former housekeeper -- whose death is now being investigated by police -- told CNN's Erin Burnett: "They have lied to them, they have taken money from them, they have misled them."Murdaugh, whose wife and son were killed in June, was arrested Thursday in connection to an insurance fraud scheme that court documents say involved Murdaugh arranging for his own killing so his surviving son could collect the life insurance payout.The case of his wife and son's death remains unsolved and Murdaugh has denied responsibility.Read MoreOn Wednesday, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division said it was opening a criminal probe into housekeeper Gloria Satterfield's death in February 2018. Satterfield, who spent more than two decades working for the family, died in what was described at the time as a "trip and...
    (CNN Business)The four people currently in orbit on SpaceX's Inspiration 4 mission will fly higher than the International Space Station, but that still may not be enough to earn them their official commercial astronaut wings from the federal government. Astronaut wings don't have any significance beyond their symbolic value, but they are quickly becoming the extraterrestrial equivalent of a verified blue checkmark on Twitter as private companies race to sell trips to space.The primary issue, according to two current officials with the Federal Aviation Administration, is that SpaceX designated the four people on board as "spaceflight participants" instead of "crew" in its FAA license application for the Inspiration 4 mission. SpaceX declined to comment.Based on the FAA's new eligibility requirements, which were changed for the first time in 17 years on the day Jeff Bezos blasted into space, only "crewmembers" who flew at least 50 miles above Earth and "demonstrated activities during flight that were essential to public safety or contributed to human space flight safety" qualify for FAA Commercial Space Astronaut Wings. Rare photos show the early years...
    Sacramento, California (CNN)California Gov. Gavin Newsom's top aides were so confident the night before the Democratic governor defeated the effort to remove him, they began giving advice to the national Democratic Party. Democrats, depending on the race, should link their opponents to former President Donald Trump like Newsom did in the waning weeks of the campaign, said top Newsom operative Sean Clegg. And Democrats should run on, not away from, stringent coronavirus orders, said campaign manager Juan Rodriguez, the same way Newsom did in a bid to cast Larry Elder, the leading Republican candidate in the recall, as anti-science."Larry Elder is on the ballot here on the recall, but a version of Larry Elder is going to be on the ballot all over the country," Rodriguez told reporters on Monday. "That's an important lesson for Democrats."The lessons Democrats across the country are taking away from the recall election, however, are far less definitive. With its 2-1 registration advantage for Democrats, California looks little like the terrain where most key races will be fought in 2022. And as a recall in...
    Vice President Kamala Harris raised eyebrows on Sunday with her tweet urging Americans to help protect already vaccinated people in order to end the COVID-19 pandemic.  "By vaccinating the unvaccinated, increasing our testing and masking, and protecting the vaccinated, we can end this pandemic. That’s exactly what we are committed to doing," Harris tweeted.  There has been widespread confusion over vaccine rhetoric from the Biden administration, as a push to protect the vaccinated has become a common talking point, despite the vaccines already providing strong protection for those who've gotten them. TRUMP SAYS DEMS 'DISPARAGED' COVID-19 VACCINE WHILE HE WAS PRESIDENT: 'NOW THEY WONDER WHY' SOME ARE HESITANT Harris’ tweet was no exception and was met with criticism and confusion.  "’Protecting the vaccinated’ is an odd argument since the vaccinated are already, you know, vaccinated. And the vaccine works in keeping one out of the hospital 99.99 percent of the time per the data," Fox News contributor Joe Concha responded.  Former Trump administration staffer Kyle Hooten asked, "Why do you need to protect the vaccinated? Doesn’t the vax do that?"...
    No film has been more eagerly anticipated. But, in a somewhat controversial development, when famous bachelor James Bond bursts back on to cinema screens later this month, he will do so as the father of a little girl. Reports suggest that Bond, played by Daniel Craig, will return as a doting dad to Mathilde, his daughter with love interest Dr Madeleine Swann, played by Lea Seydoux. Of course, with fatherhood comes responsibilities. Indeed, while the film may be called No Time To Die, any new parent knows there’s barely enough time even to have a shower — let alone eliminate a villain.  Here, proud Bond girl Britt Ekland shares her strident argument why Bond should remain footloose and child-free.... James Bond is many things, but a father? What an absolutely dreadful idea. Unthinkable, really. How would that even work? Can you imagine him swinging from a helicopter, skiing down a mountainside, rescuing a beautiful girl from being crushed under a car, then heading home to put on his sweatpants and do bath-time? Can you picture him saying, ‘Hello dearie’ to his wife,...
    Facebook is a menace. COVID-19 is a menace. Conservatism is a cesspool. Together, those three ingredients have created a toxic stew of malevolent death and devastation. We can talk about all those things in the abstract, look at the numbers and statistics, and catch the occasional whiff of seditionist right-wing rhetoric. But I hadn’t really fully understood just how horrifying that combination of right-wing extremism, Facebook, and a killer virus was until I became a regular at the Herman Cain Awards subreddit. This series will document some of those stories, so we are aware of what the other side is doing to our country. Today’s cautionary tale is Terry: Remember this meme. You’ll want to scroll back up to it in a bit.  It is impossible to overstate just how far out in the fringe Greene is. She is out there—way out there. When we talk about her being the congresswoman from Q, even that might be understating just how far gone she is.  “Biden’s mark of the Beast” is so patently absurd and laughably stupid that it blows my mind anyone has said it, much...
