    During a Thursday interview with Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sounded off on the Senate voting to raise the debt ceiling. Graham lamented that the GOP “blinked” after initially vowing not to help the Democrats raise the debt ceiling. He added that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) striking a deal with the Democrats shows them the Republican side is “all talk and no action.” “Well, we screwed up,” Graham told host Sean Hannity. “For two months, we’ve promised to the American people that we would not help the Democratic Party raise the debt ceiling so they could spend $3.5 to $5 trillion through reconciliation. At the end of the day, we blinked. Two things have happened: We’ve let our people down, and we made the Democrats believe we are all talk and no action.” He continued, “At the end of the day, every Republican voted against raising the debt ceiling. Every Democratic senator voted for it. But we had a process in place. We made a promise for two months that we would make them do...
    The Best Christmas Gifts for 2021 That Will Be on Everyone’s Wish List Fantasy Football: Updated 2021 draft rankings Fitness influencer Anna Victoria is "devastated" after nearly her entire family — including her 1-year-old daughter Aurora — contracted COVID-19. © Provided by People anna victoria/ instagram Anna Victoria with husband Luca and daughter Aurora The trainer and creator of the Fit Body App, 33, has been in Italy with her husband Luca and her mom on a weeks-long trip to introduce Aurora to Luca's family. On Saturday, Victoria shared that everyone besides her got COVID-19. "It happened. The exact thing we've been trying to avoid for 18 months now… we got hit by COVID," she wrote on Instagram. "All adults were fully vaccinated, which makes it very likely this was the delta variant." Victoria said that with the delta variant, they knew they had to be more cautious, "but I had some confidence knowing every single family member was vaccinated." Breakthrough cases — COVID-19 infections that occur in people who have been fully vaccinated against the virus — are...
    David Bowie and the members of Queen came up with their legendary hit Under Pressure while drunk and almost forgot the track's famous riff. The song was released in 1981 and topped the UK Singles Chart while it also appeared on Queen's 1982 album Hot Space. The story of the hit is recounted by Queen and Bowie in the latest episode of Queen the Greatest, a YouTube series celebrating big moments in the band's history. Hit: David Bowie and the members of Queen came up with their legendary hit Under Pressure while drunk and almost forgot the track's famous riff (David Bowie pictured in 1992) In both recent and archive footage, the band told how they were joined by Bowie in Montreux, Switzerland and came up with the song during a boozy recording session. Bowie recalled: 'They were recording there and, David [Richards, record producer] knew that I was in town, and phoned me up and asked me if I'd come down, if I'd like to go down and see what was happening.

    Vaccine mandates for workers could become the new normal Every game we cant wait to play on Apple Arcade Each week of the WNBA season, we'll go "All In" on five topics that are worth a closer look and preview what is upcoming. © Provided by Yahoo! Sports (Graphic by Amber Matsumoto/Yahoo Sports) The Commissioner's Cup date on the 2021 WNBA calendar was meant to be the ultimate kickoff party to the second half of the season after a five-week break for the Olympics. Pit two of the league's best teams against each other on a neutral court, throw in a rose gold trophy, a half-million dollars and a halftime performance to boot.  Seems solid. And in theory, it is. Except in reality, it ended up being more of a dud. The Seattle Storm, with three Team USA gold medalists at the helm, looked like they usually do in a championship game: dominant. They tore up the Connecticut Sun, 79-57, in what for the Sun was a slow, rusty performance despite having the advantage of rest. Clearly, that didn't...

    After much backlash surrounding the recently-passed election law in Georgia, Major League Baseball moved swiftly in April, announcing their decision to pull the 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta. The decision came shortly after MLB Players Association Executive Director Tony Clark expressed a desire stated players were “very much aware” of the law that some believed was implemented to make it more difficult for Black voters to cast their ballot. Three months later, the event is set to take place in Denver, CO, but the league’s controversial decision won’t be exempt from the game. Monday morning, the RNC unveiled an ad that will run during the game, trashing MLB and blaming Democrats for removing the contest from Atlanta. “This was supposed to be Atlanta’s night. But we were robbed,” former Republican legislator Melvin Everson says in the ad. “Democrats stole our All-Star game to push their divisive political agenda. Politicians and corporations lie, while Black communities got hurt the most.” Atlanta was awarded the 2021 All-Star game on May 30, 2019. It was set to celebrate...

    When boat captain Jennifer Dowker saw a small green bottle at the bottom of the Cheboygan River, she picked it up, thinking it might keep a prospective client interested in scuba diving.  Little did she know she had found something that would interest many more than just the one client.  Dowker is the owner of Nautical North Family Adventures, which runs shipwreck tours and scuba diving lessons in Cheboygan, Michigan. Last week, while she was cleaning the bottom of her glass-bottomed boat, the Yankee Sunshine, she found a message in a bottle dated 1926.

He said: “What my parents did in my family, was name all the kids born in the same year – start with the same letter. 3Murray is one of 151 childrenCredit: Tiktok/@kayezer0 “So everyone in my age group’s name all starts with an ‘M’.” Murray is his father’s 65th child and often explains what life is like growing up in a polygamist commune.

    Friday on “CNN Newsroom,” director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota and former adviser to President Biden’s transition team Dr. Michael Osterholm cautioned that “we’re not done” with the coronavirus at all. Osterholm said with the vaccine programs in place that high-income countries “won’t see big national surges,” but still stressed the importance of getting everyone vaccinated to prevent small surges. “[L]et’s make it very clear that in the high-income countries like the United States that have had the kind of vaccine programs that have been in place, we won’t see big national surges, not like we did last January,” Osterholm advised. “But we’re not done with this virus at all. You know, we have over a hundred counties in this country that have had less than 20% of their population vaccinated. We have states where we’re well below 40% with even a single dose of vaccine in people. So we have a lot of susceptible people out there that have been not vaccinated, that, for example, should this Delta variant take...
    During an appearance on Mobile, AL radio’s FM Talk 106.5, Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-MS) discussed his recent trip to the U.S.-Mexico border, which he described as “an invasion” that was overwhelming the Border Patrol. “Just got back in from the border yesterday,” he said. “We went to El Paso, so we were right there on the United States-Mexican boundary. I can tell — you hear from the administration, they’re saying our borders are closed, right? They’re not. We basically have open borders. We have an invasion at our southern border, unlike any that I have seen. The Border Patrol — they’re telling is ever since we repealed the migrant protection protocol, and if we repeal Title 42, they’re not going to be able to handle the influx.” “Every night, hundreds of single young men are trying to run around the fence, go through the fence, jump the fence, overwhelming our Border Patrol,” Palazzo continued. “Then you have the hundreds, if not thousands, of just unaccompanied minors showing up. And you know we do not send home an unaccompanied minor. They...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — All across the city people have been coming together, holding rallies to show their support for the Asian community. There was a massive show of support outside Brooklyn Borough Hall on Sunday. City leaders and people from all walks of life, all races and religions joined in a mission to stop the discrimination and violence against the Asian community, CBS2’s Hazel Sanchez reported. “There are many other people who are still staying silent. We’re gonna make sure they speak up as well. No more hate!” state Sen. John Liu said.

    Redemption is a common theme in anime that can signify the growth of the character (either through the mercy of the redeemer or the absolution of the receiver). Often times, it serves as a turning point in the story, especially when a hero and an ex-villain team up against an even greater threat. Given the omnipresence of the trope that has been demonstrated throughout many different stories, it is important to recognize characters who did not explicitly have humble origins. By pointing out his transformations from villain to hero, we can better appreciate the complexity of his characters. 10 Scar (Fullmetal Alchemist) – In the first part of the series, he was a violent terrorist who almost killed Edward Elric himself Scar was a rogue Ishvallan who sought revenge for the crimes that Amestris (and especially Bradley and Kimblee) had committed against his people. In the first part of the series, this implied that he was a violent terrorist who nearly killed Edward Elric.

    Lola was eating quietly at home with her six-year-old son when, suddenly, she heard an explosion and has seen the wall disappear of the room he was in. Then chaos. The dust and smoke have begun to flood everything and he has not thought of anything other than to rush out of there to try to get to safety as soon as possible. “The child and I were at home eating and, suddenly, the wall has fallen, like in a movie.

    DEAR ABBY: A new single pastor was assigned to my church. He asked if I was single and if I had kids. I told him no, and we began having an affair. For two years, it was all in secret. Jeanne Phillips  Then I began noticing that a single lady from his previous church would visit. He told me she was concerned about him being alone, so she was stopping by on her way through. Well, I now know she was more than that. While he was having his affair with me, he was engaged to her. When I confronted him, he denied it.

    Q: Where do I start? Damn those people overseeing toll policies on Bay Area bridges who are now planning to remove FasTrak-only lanes before toll booths. They’re playing with us. Jim Richardson, Cherryland A: How is that? Q: First they said we need FasTrak. Everything will be great for our commute. No more fumbling for change at the toll plaza. Faster through lanes at the metering light, blah, blah, blah. I laughed at them and thought they were crazy. Millions of dollars later they’re saying, “We really didn’t need those lanes after all. Ha, ha.” Now they’re going to spend more undoing what they did and removing some FasTrak lanes. Jim Richardson A: While it is very likely that many FasTrak-only-lane approaches will be removed, you’ll still need a FasTrak transponder to zip through the new all-electronic design and have your toll charged to your account, like is done on the Benicia Bridge. All-electronic tolling will reduce administrative costs. For example, a per-transaction cost for a FasTrak toll crossing is 16 cents but jumps to 40 cents for a pay-by-plate...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The coronavirus has silenced a well known and beloved voice in Los Angeles. On Tuesday, November 24, Gregory Bundy, the assistant pastor at Greater Page Temple Church of God in Christ, died. His daughter, Shonda, said the cause was coronavirus-induced pneumonia. “He loved his family, he loved his church, and he was just an awesome man,” Shonda Bundy said. Gregory Bundy grew up coming to the Greater Page Temple Church of God in Christ in South L.A. Eventually, he became an elder and then one of its pastors. Family members shared that the 65-year-old gave so much back to his community through the charity he started, “Blessed Ministry,” which donated to those in need. At the beginning of November, Pastor Bundy, who had diabetes and high blood pressure, took a mini-vacation to Las Vegas with his wife and daughter. When they returned, all three tested positive for coronavirus, and he succumbed to the illness just this week. “They definitely should have held back on the traveling and people in general need to hold back on the...
    Actress Shilpa Shetty says there was a time when no one took her seriously to offer her the role of the protagonist, adding that she is glad that she has survived through the tough times. “Back in the 1990’s, I have to be honest we were all typecast, either you were a very good actress and you would get those kinds of films or you would be typecast in those glamorous roles.

    Poll watchers were not allowed to get close enough to see the ballots on Election Day, a Republican poll watcher said Saturday at a press conference in Philadelphia. “Listen, we just want a fair election, and we view this, we view that was not fair at all. It was not fair. … You could allow us to look at the ballots, some ballots, but nothing. We were kept away from everything,” resident Daryl Brooks told the crowd. Brooks said he attended the press conference to show support for President Trump, adding that was also the reason why he signed up to be a poll watcher. “A lot of us were excited about the president winning a second term. And a lot of individuals, African Americans in Philadelphia were, especially men, were talking about their 401k plan, how they were excited because of their finances,” he continued: So when I go to the poll, there was basically, they put us at 20 feet away, and they said, “No cameras, no phones,” we cannot take pictures.

    A Syrian mercenary recently captured while fighting for Azerbaijan against Armenia in its ongoing war over Nagorno-Karabakh said on Wednesday that his recruiters instructed him and fellow mercenaries to “slaughter all civilians and soldiers” of an Armenian village they attempted to capture. Armenian forces captured Syrian national Yusuf Alaabet al-Hajji in recent days and “is currently remanded into custody facing international terrorism charges, among others,” Armenian state news agency Armenpress reported on Wednesday. Hajji told Armenian investigators that Turkish forces recruited him in Syria to fight for Azerbaijan for “a 2000-dollar monthly payment.” In his testimony, Hajji detailed how Turkish forces transported him and hundreds of other Syrian mercenaries from Syria into Turkey, then on to Azerbaijan. Shortly after arriving by plane in Azerbaijan on October 18, Hajji said he and his fellow fighters were prepared for battle at an Azeri military base by Turkish and Azeri military personnel. “We were escorted by Sheikh Ibrahim [Turkish-backed Syrian recruiter] and two Azerbaijani servicemen. Sheikh Ibrahim told us that we must capture the Armenian village ahead of us, and we must slaughter...
    The free-agency market in the NBA demands quick and calculated decision-making. A franchise has to be ‘pit-stop’ quick to fix its troubles by signing the right talent. The Philadelphia 76ers somehow pulled this logical stunt, not once, but twice in the past month. The team successfully signed the likes of Doc Rivers and Daryl Morey to strengthen their on-court performance as well as the front office. The brains of these NBA greats, coupled with a fairly young team with a lot of talent, can prove to be a new dawn for the Sixers. How did the Sixers manage to sign Daryl Morey? The co-owner of the franchise, Michael G. Rubin, gave an interview where he heaped praise on various executives who made this deal possible. He began by suggesting, “After the end of this season, it’s fair to say we were all disappointed with where we were. You’ve got to turn negatives into positives. Led by Josh Harris, we had a major mission. How to upgrade all aspects of basketball organization, started of course with Doc Rivers.” The Sixers...

Fire was burning Saturday night in the trees and hills on all sides of the Mammoth Pool Reservoir. The roads were impassable, the air thick with smoke, and no one had cell phone service.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Wisconsin toddler is safe and home with her family after she was missing for over 24 hours. It’s the ending law enforcement, volunteers, and Abby Ladwig’s family were praying for. Three-year-old Abby was found after wandering out of the woods into a yard near her family’s home in Winter, Wisconsin. It’s about a three hour drive from the Twin Cities. “We were all so happy,” Johnna Ludack, Abby’s aunt, said. Ludack and her husband had driven up from their home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, to help in the search. On Monday night, they heard a neighbor yelling that they had found her. “The dog had come out of the woods to a neighbor’s house and she walked up to the neighbor’s house and walked into this house,” Ludack said. Abby first went missing after following her dog, Peanut, out of her family’s yard and into the woods. For the next day hundreds of people took part in the search for her on foot and in the air. “With the terrain and the brush there it was...
    Do you remember “Trump Derangement Syndrome?” It was a cute phrase that likely first appeared in 2015, deployed by prominent voices across the political spectrum to demean, mock, reject, dismiss and deflect the warnings that Donald Trump was a fascist, an authoritarian and a white supremacist, not to mention a vile and dangerous human being with apparent mental pathologies who posed a massive threat to American democracy. Such truth-telling patriots were called “hysterical” and “alarmist,” or told they were “out of touch” and overly “bitter” about Hillary Clinton’s defeat thanks to the antiquated mechanism of the Electoral College and Russian interference. Those who first raised the alarm about Trumpism as a new version of fascism were also assured that ” the institutions were strong” and fascism could never take hold in America — and most certainly not in the form of a proudly ignorant wrestling-heel wannabe and reality-TV huckster. When Trump won the presidential election in 2016, there were some on the left eager to dance on Hillary Clinton’s grave. A few even gave Trump the totally unearned benefit of the doubt: He claimed to oppose globalization, neoliberalism and “endless war,” and to speak for the “white working class”.

    Donald Trump claimed federal forces were 'all set to go into Seattle' to dismantle the city's occupied protest zone when Seattle police moved in to vacate the area. Trump said federal troops 'were going in very soon' and he 'looked forward to it' but police officers went in first to reclaim the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) zone on June 1. Mayor Jenny Durkan branded the gathering at the East Precinct and Cal Anderson Park an 'unlawful assembly' and demanded all barriers be removed in an order issued last week.

    Since May, the Trump administration has paid a fledgling Texas company $7.3 million for test tubes needed in tracking the spread of the coronavirus nationwide. But, instead of the standard vials, Fillakit LLC has supplied plastic tubes made for bottling soda, which state health officials say are unusable. The state officials say that these “preforms,” which are designed to be expanded with heat and pressure into 2-liter soda bottles, don’t fit the racks used in laboratory analysis of test samples. Even if the bottles were the right size, experts say, the company’s process likely contaminated the tubes and could yield false test results. Fillakit employees, some not wearing masks, gathered the miniature soda bottles with snow shovels and dumped them into plastic bins before squirting saline into them, all in the open air, according to former employees and ProPublica’s observation of the company’s operations. “It wasn’t even clean, let alone sterile,” said Teresa Green, a retired science teacher who worked at Fillakit’s makeshift warehouse outside of Houston for two weeks before leaving out of frustration.
