    In this article NWL WSM Shoppers pass in front of a Williams Sonoma store at The Mall at Short Hills shopping center in Short Hills, New Jersey.Gabby Jones | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesAs bigger holiday gatherings return, a wave of party hosts are dusting off the champagne glasses, flexing new skills like breadmaking and showing off recipes that they learned during the pandemic. For Williams-Sonoma and other retailers, that's an opportunity to sell platters, kitchen appliances and more — and nudge people to put those items on their wish lists. Williams-Sonoma, in particular, has been on a tear over the past year as stay-at-home orders turned many Americans into amateur chefs, inspiring them to pick up cooking and baking as hobbies and buy new furniture and decor. Along with its flagship banner, the parent company owns other brands like Pottery Barn and West Elm. Shares of the company have more than doubled in value since January. The stock hit a 52-week high of $223.32 on Monday, but was recently trading Wednesday at around $210, giving it a market cap...
    President Joe Biden speaks at a Tribal Nations Summit in the South Court Auditorium of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, next to the White House. Hey people: It’s time to take a moment and cheer for our new and hard-working president, Joe Biden. He’s getting s**t done! And we should all take a breath and enjoy the successes. Remember, when Biden took office he was facing monumental challenges. Between a worldwide pandemic and a staggering daily death toll, following a violent attempted coup d’état and an outgoing president refusing to acknowledge defeat while facing impeachment for a second time, the only thing the incoming president didn’t have on his plate was a war.  Narrowly coming from behind, and thanks to a pair of January Georgia Senate runoffs that helped to put Democrats in positions of some authority on Capitol Hill, Biden has led the nation with on-the-mark stimulus policies, revived a slogging economy, and made huge improvements toward slashing poverty.  “The number of poor Americans is expected to fall by nearly 20 million from 2018 levels, a decline of almost 45 percent,” according to The New York Times.  Fast forward...
    Retailers were given good news on Tuesday by a Bank of America analyst who predicted that a millennial baby boom could be on the way - leading to a boost in sales for stores. Millennials - those aged 25 to 40 - now make up the largest generation in the United States, having overtaken Baby Boomers. About 72.1 million people are classified as millennials, also known as Gen Y, according to Pew research.  Robert Ohmes, the BofA analyst, reported on Tuesday that birth rates are up, more pregnancy tests are being sold, and more couples say they are trying to have a baby. Sales of pregnancy tests have grown by an average of 13 percent year-on-year since June 2020, according to data from Nielsen and research by Bank of America.  Sales of pregnancy tests have risen 13 per cent, year on year, since June 2020 according to a new report out on Tuesday Ohmes predicted that a Millennial baby boom would bring good news for retailers RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Household debt hits a...

Births of new babies are up. Pregnancy tests are selling at a higher rate. And more couples say they are trying to have a baby, according to the company's research. That could spell good news for grocers, big-box stores and warehouse clubs that sell diapers, strollers and other baby merchandise — or simply are located closer to suburban homes where new parents may settle, according to Robby Ohmes, a equity research analyst. He predicted the baby boom could start this year. Among the beneficiaries, he called out: Albertsons, Kroger, Dollar General and BJ's Wholesale Club. Millennials have surpassed baby boomers to become the largest generation in the country,...
    As Republicans scrambled to pass a tax giveaway to the wealthy in late 2017, Donald Trump developed a slogan: "How's your 401(k) doing?" Trump floated the inquiry at fundraisers, campaign rallies, and White House events. While less than half of private sector employees even had a 401(k) at the time, some of Trump's most fervent supporters adopted the mantra. As reporters scoured the earth for every last 2016 Trump voter to ask what they thought of the job he was doing, many of them responded like Pavlov's dogs: "My 401(k) has soared under Trump." The truth is, President Obama's economy grew the stock market more than Trump's did even before the pandemic hit. But that's beside the point. Trump remained focused on the stock market throughout his tenure, and his cult followers were convinced their personal finances had improved by leaps and bounds. In fact, in one of the worst debate performances in modern political history, Trump crassly warned voters of Biden, "If he gets in, you will have a depression the likes of which you have never seen. Your...
    The progressive lawmaker mostly stopped her criticism there, though, recognizing that the party needs to be united in order to pass President Joe Biden's massive "Build Back Better" social spending package. .@AOC then claims \u201cI\u2019m not trying to start beef with people.\u201dpic.twitter.com/GeEu2WkEI2 — John Gage (@John Gage) 1636030192 She did manage to call the claim that progressives lost Virginia for the Democrats a "clown argument."What else?It's safe to say Ocasio-Cortez's argument is well outside the mainstream. Many pundits blamed the Democratic Party's losses in the commonwealth on Americans' dissatisfaction with the party's drift to the radical left. In Virginia, it's likely that voters were particularly disenchanted with the left's push for race-based curriculum, extensive COVID-19 lockdowns, and transgender-affirming policies in schools. Democratic strategist James Carville blamed "stupid wokeness" for the Democrats' peril on Tuesday, arguing "these people need to go to a woke detox center or something." The New York Times editorial board called the results "a grave marker of political peril" as "Democrats, looking left on so many priorities and so much messaging, have lost sight of what can...
    THE DAILY NEWSLETTER – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2021 Photo by David McNew/Newsmakers.   MEDIA WINNER: CNN’s Em Steck and Andrew Kaczynski The CNN KFile team dropped their latest investigative report shortly before midnight Thursday, this time focusing on Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake. Lake, a longtime Phoenix-area news anchor, has secured the coveted endorsement from former President Donald Trump, but it’s several of her other supporters who drew the attention of CNN’s Em Steck and Andrew Kaczynski, who shared their research in a detailed and heavily-sourced article. Their findings include Lake campaigning with several people who have promoted some of the most extreme and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories to crawl out of the QAnon cesspool, like Mary Ann Mendoza, who was dropped from speaking at the 2020 Republican National Convention after her pro-QAnon social media posts were discovered, including claiming Jews were plotting to take over the world. Oh, there’s also an actual Nazi sympathizer who complained that Adolf Hitler was misunderstood and an anti-masking activist who made local headlines for “harassing a store specializing in wigs for cancer patients...
    New York (CNN Business)Friday gave Joe Biden something smile about, for a change: a flurry of good news for the US economy.First, the labor market appears to be rounding a corner — finally — in its recovery from Covid-19 shutdowns, as employers added more than half a million jobs last month, handily exceeding expectations. Then there was even more to cheer with news that Pfizer's experimental coronavirus pill reduced the risk of hospitalization and death in a trial. The stock market surged on the double dose of optimism. The Dow was up around 300 points, or 0.8%, at the opening bell.It's hard to imagine anything but high fives and cheers in the West Wing with those headlines circulating, all before 9 am ET. As the White House rolls out contentious vaccine requirements for roughly 100 million Americans, Biden could hardly ask for better numbers to bolster his case that vaccinations are the key to getting the economy back on track.

    VIDEO3:2203:22Small caps kick off November with a rally — Here's what's nextTrading Nation November kicked off with a big rally for small stocks. The small-cap-focused Russell 2000 rose nearly 3% on Monday, far better than the S&P 500 which ended the session only slightly higher. The corner of the market for small caps has lagged the large caps this year, gaining 19% compared with the S&P's 23% increase. Ari Wald, head of technical analysis at Oppenheimer, said the rally in small caps will continue and it should fuel even more gains for their large-cap counterparts. In a report over the weekend, he coined this as "a bet on small is a bet on all." "This now fresh nine-month breakout in the Russell 2000 small-cap gauge of stocks, we see that as internal firepower for equities broadly going into the first half of 2022," Wald told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Monday. "Every rolling three-month period since 1979 when the Russell is up the S&P 500 has also been up 92% of the time. Hence, it's not one or another. This isn't...
    A sleep expert has revealed the top seven reasons people are unable to get a good night's sleep and it's bad news for those who like to unwind with screen time or love a late-night snack. Dr Carmel Harrington, consulting sleep expert for Calming Blankets and an internationally recognised sleep scientist, said while engaging in unhealthy habits before bed is common many don't realise the harmful impact this can have on their health and sleep. Unhealthy habits include too much screen time, consuming alcohol, late dinners or snacks, working late, having inconsistent bed times, having caffeine before bed and having a 'bad' sleeping environment.  Dr Carmel Harrington, consulting sleep expert for Calming Blankets and an internationally recognised sleep scientist, revealed engaging in unhealthy habits before bed is common, yet many don't realise the harmful impact this can have on their health and sleep  Dr Harrington said it is okay to indulge one or two nights per week but when these behaviours become the norm it can impact your sleep and even lead to sleep deprivation.

    Though head coach Matt Nagy will not be available vs. the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon, here is why that is not the end of the world for the Chicago Bears. With Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy being ruled out for Week 8‘s home game vs. the San Francisco 49ers, this provides the organization an opportunity to see what they have without their much-scrutinized head coach. Nagy tested positive for COVID-19 after last weekend’s disaster vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor will be filling in. Though Chicago is starting to lose control of its season, it is not like the 49ers are all that good either. It will be a very small sample size, but Nagy’s absence could reveal what this team could look like without him. If Chicago beats San Francisco at home, that might only hasten the Bears organization to move on from their struggling head coach.Bears not having Matt Nagy could prove to be beneficial vs. 49ersBy not having Nagy around, it may allow offensive coordinator Bill Lazor to call an unencumbered game. A similar...

    Knicks News: Taj Gibson is the roadblock in front of Jericho Sims, but for good reason Alexander Wilson October 15, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Knicks will be leaning on some of their veteran players this upcoming season to maintain discipline. Head coach Tom Thibodeau relies on some of the older players to help guide the team’s youth, and that is exactly what he expects out of reserve center, Taj Gibson this upcoming year. Gibson has been a productive player in the NBA for quite some time, and he signed a two-year, $10.1 million deal this past off-season with the Knicks. While the contract has an OUT after the 2021–22 season, the Knicks are still excited about what he can offer them behind Mitchell Robinson and Nerlens Noel. “He’s a great veteran leader. It’s like having another assistant coach out there. He just knows everything,” Thibodeau said about Gibson. “He doesn’t make mistakes, he plays hard. He can guard every position. His...

    A longtime Mississippi news anchor has been ousted from her job after refusing to get the COVID vaccine. Last Thursday, Meggan Gray, 40, signed off from Good Morning Mississippi by saying she wanted 'to take a moment and let you know that I honestly do not know what the future holds for me as far as my career here at WLOX. 'And I just felt that I owed it to you... to take a moment while I had an opportunity to say thank you for allowing me into your homes for the past several years,' she said, visibly choking up as she spoke. 'I've had a wonderful 18 year career here, and I'm very grateful for every moment of it. Thank you so much.' The next day, for the first time in 14 years, she was not featured behind the anchor's desk. She took to Facebook to explain that she was terminated from her job because she refused to comply with a mandate by WLOX's parent company, Gray Television, that requires all staff members, contractors and visitors be fully vaccinated...
    ARSENAL boss Mikel Arteta has been named Premier League manager of the month for September. The Gunners started the season poorly, losing their first three league games to Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City. 1Arteta's Arsenal got off to a tough start in the league, sitting rock bottom after three gamesCredit: GETTY IMAGES But bounced back, beating Norwich, Burnley and north London rivals Tottenham. The Spaniard beat former mentor Pep Guardiola to the prestigious award, as well as Jurgen Klopp, Graham Potter and Dean Smith. On the award, Arteta told Arsenal.com: "I think [this award] represents the way everyone has been together, has been working and has been positive in difficult moments and continued to do their work with the right mentality, the right ambition and with the right work and direction. "So it's for them. I get [the award] but it's for all the people behind it." Arteta also insists his team are in 'a really good place' right now. He continued: "The squad is in a really good place.

    A well-known former federal prosecutor is weighing in on the latest news about ex-Florida tax collector Joel Greenberg, who has pleaded guilty to seven felony counts including the sex trafficking of a minor. Greenberg, a close friend of U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) who he once called his "wingman," has been awaiting sentencing. He was originally charged with 33 criminal counts, but in May entered into a plea agreement. On Tuesday NBC News Correspondent for Investigations, Tom Winter, reported Greenberg "has asked to delay his sentencing citing his ongoing cooperation with investigators, court documents say, as the probe into whether or not Gaetz had sex with an underage girl continues." Citing Greenberg's attorney, Fritz Scheller, Winter adds that "Greenberg has been cooperating with prosecutors through a series of proffers and that cooperation won't be done before his current sentencing date of November 18th. Prosecutors and Greenberg are asking for a sentencing date in March 2022." "Prosecutors would not agree to this if he wasn't being helpful," Winter notes. Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance, now a University of Alabama Law School...
    (CNN)For the past few months, as the world has been debating boosters, breakthrough infections, and real-world efficacy, there has been one common refrain in questions I'm being asked on Twitter and in person: "What about those of us who got J&J?" Megan Ranney Put yourself back in the mindset of February 2021. We were desperately short on vaccines, and I and other medical and public health officials were encouraging folks to "get the first vaccine you're offered." At this moment in time, J&J felt like a game-changer. It could dramatically increase capacity and reduce supply chain challenges. Its reported efficacy was slightly less than that of Moderna's or Pfizer's mRNA vaccines, but was still strong; clinical trials showed it to be 66% effective at preventing moderate to severe illness, 85% effective against severe disease and 100% effective at preventing death. Read MoreAs a "one and done" shot, it would also help the needle-phobic, the mRNA hesitant, or just people who would never come back for a second visit to get protected. But then the bottom dropped out. For a combination...
    The beleaguered Duke of York is yet to return from the Queen's holiday Scottish estate to meet his new granddaughter.   But after yet another disastrous week trying to fight the damning allegations against him, Prince Andrew was spotted putting his right foot forward (for once). The duke, 61, who has been accused of 'hiding' in Balmoral in recent weeks, rescued a dog while attending a reception in an upper storey of a castle in the Scottish Highlands, a source told The Times. The royal managed to rush to the aid of the small canine after it became excited at the sounds of the royal security dogs barking below and bolted towards an open window. Moments before the dog plunged to its doom, the Duke of York rushed to the window and rescued it from peril before cradling the helpless creature in his arms. The Duke of York, who is staying at the Queen's Balmoral estate, was spotted putting his right foot forward (for once)  The incident comes after it was reported the duke was yet to return from Scotland to meet...
    WEEKEND UPDATE: It may not be a "perfect" storm, but a random cluster of showers and thunderstorms that became Tropical Storm Odette will be good news for our area this weekend, meteorologist Joe Cioffi said Friday. "The obvious one is that it is moving northeast and headed out to sea," Cioffi said. "It is also going to allow a cold front to our north to move through Saturday night and bring lower humidity for Sunday and Monday." Going into the weekend, six of the named storms in the Atlantic this year accelerated into hurricanes. Three of those — Grace, Ida and Larry — became powerhouses. Odette isn't pack much of a punch. As of early Friday evening, its sustained winds were barely 40 mph, the National Hurricane Center reported. That means conditions will be dry but cloudy overnight, with skies beginning to clear by morning -- "a positive development," Cioffi said. Then it begins to warm up. "Odette will be pulling away Saturday passing southeast of Cape Cod by a fair distance," Cioffi said. "Look for increasing amounts of sunshine, relatively...

    California Republican gubernatorial front-runner Larry Elder said Tuesday lines at the polls are long, which he sees as a good sign for his campaign, as he seeks to unseat Gov. Gavin Newsom in a two-question election; whether to recall the Democrat from office, and if so who to replace him with. Elder, who rose to the top of the polls on the replacement question, ahead of other candidates including Republicans Kevin Faulconer and Caitlyn Jenner, told "Hannity" there is "no front where [Newsom] has done a good job." He noted that poll lines are a good sign in an election where ballots were mailed to every registered voter on the rolls in the state – remarking that Democrats "trust the mail" while Republicans tend to trust physical polls. Video"The lines are long. That’s good news for our side," he said. "I've heard from people saying I've voted all my life, I have never seen lines like this." Elder said Newsom has failed on COVID-19 economic recovery, has been overtly draconian in his lockdown orders, and has crippled the state...
    Sign up here to get our updates on coronavirus in Minnesota delivered straight to your inbox. And go here to see all of MinnPost’s COVID-19 coverage. Early this summer, things were looking up on the COVID-19 front: for stretches of June, Minnesota was reporting fewer than 100 new COVID-19 cases per day and hospitalizations dipped below 100 for the first time in months. Today, the news is less good. Minnesota is averaging more than 1,500 new cases per day this week, and more than 600 people are in the hospital. But something is different about this new, fourth wave of COVID-19 in Minnesota that sets it apart from previous waves: fewer people are dying. Article continues after advertisement Cases up, hospitalizations up, deaths flat Previous waves of this virus followed a predictable pattern: First, cases rose. Soon, hospitalizations rose as some of those cases became severe enough to require medical care. A couple weeks later, death tolls rose as some of the hospitalized succumbed to the virus. Even as cases subsided, it took a few weeks for the lagging...
    The Chicago White Sox will downplay Lance Lynn’s knee inflammation, but let’s not kid ourselves, no September injury is small. Ideally, Lynn will be back in a week and his season will continue without a blip. That’s what the White Sox would like us to think, and there’s a very real chance this is all precautionary. The move is retroactive to Aug. 29, so Lynn should be available in early September. Until then, the White Sox have a handy lead in the AL Central over the Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers. “It’s doing all right,” Lynn said, per ESPN. “Hopefully we can use this time here to catch up with it. The schedule works out where we can get back, if not ahead, at least somewhat even with it, where I can manage it start by start. It’s ahead of us on the treatment side. We’re going to catch back up.” White Sox: Better now than never with Lance Lynn treatmentLike Lynn said, he’s hoping to get ahead of things with his treatment, especially while the White Sox have a...

    SIERRA MADRE, Calif. (KABC) -- The Sierra Madre Playhouse decided 'the show must go on' and moved from doing productions indoors to outdoors at Memorial Park due to concerns about the pandemic."That's something I have been wanting to do for a very long time," said Christian Lebano, the producing artistic director at the Playhouse. "If there is any good that's come out of COVID, this will be one of those."And the director's dream came true with the production of 'You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown.' Lebano said they started planning for it over a year ago."Fifty percent of our audience has never attended a show at Sierra Madre Playhouse. So we are finding more families are coming to see the show because of the nature of Charlie Brown and also I think feeling safe out here at the park," said Lebano.And safety was a key role in the production. To keep everyone safe, seating was arranged in a way to keep families within their own group.The show ends on September 12.Click here to buy tickets.
    Kyle Trask at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Aug. 21, 2021.Tori Richman/Tampa Bay Buccaneers Before we get into the ugliness that was Saturday night’s game against the Titans, I’d like to begin by emphasizing that the Bucs accomplished the No. 1 goal in every preseason game ever played. No injuries.  Now that we’ve focused on the positives, it’s time for some… not so great stuff.  The final score ended up being 33-3, but it’s still important to note that no starters played a single minute. And while that score is pretty atrocious (and a pretty accurate display of how the game went), it doesn’t even begin to describe the awful play that was seen at Raymond James Stadium against the Titans.  I mean, there were some egregious errors. I’m thinking about O.J. Howard and his three drops in the first half and Kyle Trask throwing a pair of interceptions. My mind is also on the rushing attack totaling a whopping 17 yards on 15 attempts. The Bucs fumbling the ball a whopping 6 times also haunts my nightmares...

    When Covid-19 hit, asthmatics were warned to be extra careful. Since the virus typically damages the lungs and causes breathing problems, these patients were thought to be particularly vulnerable. But research has found that during the pandemic, just 14 per cent of people hospitalised with Covid in the UK had asthma. What’s more, these patients were more likely to survive than others if they were infected by the virus. And now it’s been found that over the past 18 months, the number of asthmatics suffering an attack severe enough to need a visit from their GP was lower than in the previous four years. Research has found that during the pandemic, just 14 per cent of people hospitalised with Covid in the UK had asthma ‘There has been a significant reduction in attendance to primary care for exacerbations [attacks] during the pandemic,’ says the study’s lead author, Dr Syed Shah, a chancellor’s fellow at the University of Edinburgh’s asthma research centre. Dr Shah and his team analysed the medical records of more than 100,000 asthma patients and found a...

    Yankees have good injury news on the way as starting pitching rotation falls apart Alexander Wilson August 13, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Yankees featured Andrew Heaney in one of the most exciting baseball games of the year on Thursday evening. In the Field of Dreams game, Heaney underperformed, which has been a frequent reality for the Bombers as several starting pitchers are working their way back from injury and Covid. Over 5.0 innings, he allowed seven earned runs on five hits, including three home runs. Hosting a 5.78 ERA, the bullpen fared slightly better until Zack Britton gave up a two-run blast in the ninth inning to walk it off for the Chicago White Sox. The offense fought valiantly, smacking four homers, two of which came from slugger Aaron Judge. Home runs by Judge and Giancarlo Stanton in the ninth and gave the Yankees a one-run lead, but they couldn’t finish off the contest. Better starting pitching would’ve given...
    (CNN)The American Dream of home ownership may be slipping out of reach for adults coming of age in and around the Great Recession and starting families in and around the pandemic. But that dream may still be for rent.After spending the past weekend focused on the ending federal eviction moratorium and frightening predictions that a wave of pent-up evictions is imminent and will mostly effect lower income Americans and people of color, it was with some whiplash that I read Hanna Ziady's story for CNN Business Monday morning.Her headline: Wall Street is buying up family homes.

    Yesterday's presenters and eyewitnesses. WaPo: Capitol Police officer castigates Trump for saying his supporters were ‘a loving crowd’ To me, it’s insulting, just demoralizing because of everything that we did to prevent everyone in the Capitol from getting hurt,” Gonell said. “And what he was doing, instead of sending the military, instead of sending the support or telling his people, his supporters, to stop this nonsense, he begged them to continue fighting.” “I’m still recovering from those hugs and kisses that day that he claimed,” Gonell added. xOne person and one person only was the root cause of Jan. 6.How people can watch that video, listen to this police officer's story, yet continue to support him............. pic.twitter.com/qqsPatmNAo— S.V.

    VIDEO3:0703:07EY on how Covid has boosted digitalization in the retail industryStreet Signs Asia Japan's vaccination efforts are gaining some momentum now after a slow start, and that's good news for retailers, said EY's Nobuko Kobayashi. "The vaccination, finally, is picking up steam in Japan. Government says that all who wants to be vaccinated can be by October, November," Kobayashi, Asia-Pacific strategy execution leader at EY, told CNBC's "Street Signs Asia" on Friday. Looking ahead, the short-term milestone will be if Japan's vaccination rollout reaches a level whereby "everyone feels comfortable to go out again," she said. Kobayashi said the consumption outlook on balance is positive, even taking into consideration concerns about Covid variants like delta. Following a sluggish rollout earlier in the year, vaccination rates in Japan have risen substantially in recent weeks. Daily Covid-19 vaccine doses administered even crossed the one million mark in June, according to Our World in Data.CNBC Health & Science Read CNBC's latest global coverage of the Covid pandemic: Moderna says Covid vaccine shows promise in a lab setting against variants, including delta These...

    Wednesday’s news of the Minnesota Museum of Art’s recent acquisition – all five volumes of the MPLSART Sketchbook Project 2020 – made us wonder what else is going on at the M. Maybe you wondered, too. Aside from announcements of exhibitions in its St. Paul skyway and street-level window galleries on Fourth Street and Robert Street N., and virtual or low-contact events related to those, the M has seemed shrouded in mystery for more than a year. Like everything else, it closed to COVID-19 in March 2020, but no reopening date has been announced. The final phase of its build-out of the historic Pioneer Endicott Building has been on hold. We’ve never learned why its director for more than a decade, Kristin Makholm, was “released from her position” in mid-July by then board chair Gregory Page. Chris Widdess, former managing director of Penumbra Theatre, has been serving as interim executive director, but there has been no news about the search for a permanent ED. And there’s a new board chair. Ann Ruhr Pifer, perhaps best known for her years owning...
    A DATING expert revealed the five signs someone is really into you - and why it’s good news if they keep looking down. A TikTok dating coach revealed the cues you should notice on the person you like to see if they are attracted to you as well. Taking to the social media platform, Jacob Lucas claimed that it's all in the eyes, the hands, and the way they hug you. Eye-contact 5Credit: TikTok Jacob claims that when the person that likes you looks at you for the first time as you get together, their eyes might pop before they look down. "When a person's eyes pop when they see you, it means you've grabbed their attention," he explained. "But when they look down straight after is because they're accessing their feelings about you and having an inner dialogue with themselves about how attractive they find you." Hugs 5Credit: TikTok In another video, Jacob claimed that someone who is attracted to you will try to get you as close as possible when they hug you. "At the...
    MOST people joke that being stressed gives you grey hair - but experts have now proven this theory, with the good news being that it can be reversed. Experts said that hair colour can be restored once stress is eliminated from a person's life. 1Stress has long been associated with new grey hairs springing upCredit: Getty Researchers at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons measured subtle variations of colour and pigmentation. They took samples from 14 volunteers and looked at them through a high resolution scanner. These samples were then compared to stress diaries, in which each participant was asked to review and rate their stress each week. The study's senior author Martin Picard, associate professor of behavioural medicine said striking associations between stress and hair greying were revealed. In some cases, there had been a reversal of greying with the lifting of stress, he said. He added: "There was one individual who went on vacation, and five hairs on that person's head reverted back to dark during the vacation, synchronised in time." Picard explained that human ageing can be...
    If you've noticed you're losing your natural hair colour, you can make the grey go away by living a less stress-filled life, a new study shows. Scientists in New York found that when people with grey hairs avoided stress, new hair growth was closer to their natural colour.  The team took hairs from the heads of volunteers and created an imaging method that detects pigment throughout a hair, from base to tip.   Stress-induced changes in the mitochondria – the 'powerhouse' of each human cell – causes changes to hundreds of proteins in the hair, causing greying, they say.   The study has been led by experts at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center in Manhattan, New York, who claim to have provided the first quantitative evidence linking psychological stress to greying hair in humans. 'Understanding the mechanisms that allow "old" grey hairs to return to their "young" pigmented states could yield new clues about the malleability of human ageing in general and how it is influenced by stress,' said senior author Professor Martin Picard. 'Our data add to a growing body...
    LeBron James would rather play for the Tune Squad than Team USA this summer. After seeing his Los Angeles Lakers be eliminated by the Phoenix Suns in Game 6, LeBron James thinks the next team he will play for is the Tune Squad, and not Team USA over in Tokyo. At 36-years-old, this would have been James’ last shot at playing for his country in the Summer Olympic Games. While he has already won gold for Team USA, James getting rest ahead of the Monstars is exactly what he and the Lakers will need heading into next season. With the Tokyo Games only a few weeks away, it makes all the sense in the world for James to sit this one out. With a re-energized James, maybe the Lakers can contend for an NBA Finals next summer? "Nah, I think Im gonna play for the Tune Squad this summer instead of the Olympics." LeBron had jokes to end his presser ???? pic.twitter.com/SR7H1fF5cN — ESPN (@espn) June 4, 2021 LeBron James skipping out on the Olympics is great news for the...
    The Yankees get some good news on starting pitcher Luis Severino Andres Chavez May 31, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees lost three games in a row against a weak opponent to end last week, but that doesn’t mean the team is bad or in a particularly compromising position. They remain in third place of the AL East, 4.5 games behind an opponent with which they will battle it out in a series to open this week, the Tampa Bay Rays. They do need to improve certain facets of the game, most notably an offense that has struggled to produce much this week. The starting rotation, for the most part, has remained steady. Before Monday’s action, the unit had the ninth-best ERA in MLB with 3.45, and the seventh-best FIP (Fielding Independent Pitching) with 3.48. The Yankees’ rotation depth will be put to test in the next few weeks, as Corey Kluber went down with a shoulder strain last week. Deivi Garcia didn’t have a good start in his first turn replacing...
    Despite Yankees dealing with serious injuries, good news could be on the horizon Alexander Wilson May 27, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees are dealing with a significant number of injuries, as starting pitcher, Corey Kluber suffered a shoulder injury that will keep him out for a minimum of four weeks. Experiencing shoulder tightness, the injury won’t be season-ending, but it could be two months until he sees the mound again for the Yankees, and after gaining so much momentum, this is a significant blow to his progress. However, the Yankees must move on, as the rest of the league is also dealing with their fair share of struggles in the department. “I know a lot of teams are dealing with the injury bug, us as well now,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “We’re trying to live in the now and trying to do all we can to get the most out of our guys, but also make sure whenever we can try and prevent these kind of things.” It wasn’t only...
    Oprah, Prince Harry host discussion with Gaga, Glenn Close U.S. stocks are demonstrating most of the characteristics of a bubble, but don’t sell yet, says strategist If you've been reading this space during the NBA and NHL playoffs, you've seen the term "zig-zag theory." We'll explain, and New York Knicks fans are going to have a new appreciation for it.  It's the simplest method of handicapping. For practical purposes, if a team loses a game in a series (particularly the first game), you take them against the spread in the next game. There are arguments that the zig-zag theory is outdated, mostly because oddsmakers caught on and move lines to tax bettors playing the method. For example, the Los Angeles Lakers lost Game 1 to the Phoenix Suns and the line moved 4 points their way for Game 2. The Lakers did win and cove though.  Like anything with betting (or life), some context and nuance needs to be involved. But zig-zag betting does make some logical sense: Teams losing the previous game have more urgency and they are...
    An implantable 'living pharmacy' that may be able to halve the time it takes to recover from jet lag is being developed by researchers from Illinois. Northwestern University experts have signed a $33 million (£23.3 million) contract with the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop the device. Combing synthetic biology with electronics, the implant would contain engineered cells which produce the same peptides the body uses to regulate sleep/wake cycles. When triggered wirelessly by an external hub, the device would use light to trigger the cellular production of precise peptide doses to adjust the user's body clock. The implant could find application not only with long-distance flyers — both commercial and military — but also among workers who vary day and night shifts. When triggered wirelessly by an external hub, the device would use light to trigger the cellular production of precise peptide doses to adjust the user's body clock, as depicted 'This control system allows us to deliver a peptide of interest on demand, directly into the bloodstream,' said project leader and biomedical engineer Jonathan Rivnay of...

    In this article TGTVIDEO2:1702:17Trading Nation: Target earnings on deck — What to expectTrading NationTarget will be the latest big-box retailer to release quarterly results when it announces earnings before the bell Wednesday. That report comes on the heels of a blowout quarter from Walmart. Grocery and e-commerce sales helped that company beat on its top and bottom line. Earnings of $1.69 a share surpassed forecasts for $1.21. There's good news and bad news for Target heading into the report, according to Matt Maley, chief market strategist at Miller Tabak. The bad? Maley said the stock is prone to sell-offs when it gets this overpriced. "On a historical basis, the stock is definitely expensive. At one times sales, it's the same level it saw in 2005 and 2000, which was just before it saw a pretty significant sell-off," Maley told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Tuesday. In 2005, the last time the stock traded above 1.1 times trailing sales, it fell from a peak of $60 to a trough below $45 in 12 months, a more than 25% decline. It currently trades...
    Frank Sinatra, famous for his heavy drinking, once said: 'Alcohol may be man's worst enemy, but The Bible says: 'Love your enemy.' And that neatly encapsulates our love-hate relationship with booze. We know the dangers of heavy drinking, but most of us still get a lot of pleasure from a tipple. Despite the pressures of lockdown, the average amount of booze being consumed in the UK hasn't changed that much, but where we are drinking, what we are drinking, and who is doing the drinking certainly has. Surveys suggest that while a third of us have cut back, another third (mainly men and women in their 50s, who were already fairly heavy drinkers) have drunk more over the past year. According to research by the University of Sheffield, there has also been a significant switch from drinking beer to drinking spirits, partly driven by the gin trend. Despite the pressures of lockdown, the average amount of booze being consumed in the UK hasn't changed that much, but where we are drinking, what we are drinking, and who is doing...
    President Joe Biden addressed the gas shortages and long lines at gas stations after a speech on vaccines Wednesday. The Colonial Pipeline is shut down due to a recent ransomware attack and several states have declared a state of emergency over gas shortages. One reporter asked the president, “What do you say to Americans who are worried about the supply of gas and rising prices right now?” Biden said the administration has been “in very, very close contact with Colonial Pipeline” and added, “I think you’re going to hear some good news in the next 24 hours. And I think we’ll be getting that under control.” The president also remarked that the ransomware attack shows the need for the U.S. making a “greater investment in education as it relates to be able to train and graduate more people proficient in cybersecurity.” You can watch above, via CNN.
