    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia police are investigating after a Catholic school was broken into, which caused extensive damage.  “The kids of the community need this school so at every opportunity when something knocks you down you just open the doors again and let them back in,” Ed Coleman, the principal at Visitation BVM School, said.  READ MORE: 6 Pedestrians Hit By Driver Outside While Leaving Chester Church, Police SayThe doors of BVM in Kensington have been closed since early last week. But it’s not because of a COVID outbreak, or Thanksgiving break.  The school has been closed because someone broke into the school on Lehigh Avenue and stole pipes. It caused the school to flood and knocked out the heat. The parish attached to the school has also been affected. “The last 3 days were the hardest days I’ve had and nobody was even here,” Coleman said. After the pipes were ripped from the wall, the basement was under as much as 4-feet of water. Now, all pumps, valves, and motors have to be replaced. School officials say the thieves...

    In 2019, when the Ravens won 12 straight games and entered the playoffs as Super Bowl favorites, they led the NFL in point differential. In 2020, when the Ravens rattled off five straight wins to clinch an 11-win season and postseason berth, they led the NFL in point differential. This year has been a little different. Entering Week 12, the 7-3 Ravens trail only the 8-3 Tennessee Titans in the AFC, but their point differential is just plus-17, tied for seventh best in the conference. Their 16-13 win Sunday over the Chicago Bears was their fifth fourth-quarter comeback this season. “To see the effort and the sacrifices that this team has made over the last 10 weeks, it’s just been inspiring,” defensive end Calais Campbell said. “It’s something that we can definitely use as momentum going forward.” They’ll take whatever they can get at this point. Starting Sunday night against the Cleveland Browns, the Ravens will end the regular season with seven games against teams that currently have winning records. Here’s how those games stack...

    Gaffe-prone President Biden stumbled his way through a line on universal pre-K during a stump speech for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe on Tuesday night, and Republicans were quick to take notice.  'In fact, we're taking a page from Terry's book when he was governor and when he'd be governor next time,' Biden told a crowd in Arlington, Va.  'We're emerging from this pandemic, we want to expand pre-K for 3- and 4-year-olds — millions of [inaudible] students.' Biden's Build Back Better agenda includes nationwide pre-kindergarten.   The Republican National Committee posted a 15-second clip of the video to Twitter with the caption, 'Huh?'  Critics have been quick to point to the 78-year-old president's frequent blunders as signs of his cognitive decline, while defenders have called such attacks hyper-partisan and noted that Biden has struggled to overcome a stutter throughout his life.  'In fact, we're taking a page from Terry's book when he was governor and when he'd be governor next time,' Biden told a crowd in Arlington, Va. 'We're emerging from this pandemic, we want to expand pre-K for 3- and...

Evra told The Times: "I bore no grudges against opponents — apart from James Milner. "I hated to play against him. He defended more than me, and he wasn’t a defender. "He worked harder than any player. I couldn’t breathe when I got the ball because he was always about to tackle me. "I needed two weeks to recover after playing against him. "I used to check which club he was playing for at the start of the season. Most read in Premier LeagueLive BlogUNITED LATEST...

    Jamie Lee Curtis says the 'hardest thing' about adjusting to her daughter Ruby coming out as transgender has been not using her new name — and not the one she'd been calling her all her life. The 62-year-old actress revealed this summer that her daughter, who was previously known as Thomas, had told her and her husband, Christopher Guest, that she is a trans woman and now goes by Ruby. Speaking to People, she now says there were 'tears involved' when Ruby came out, but she is 'a grateful student' when it comes to supporting her daughter.  Curtis admitted that she does 'slip up' with Ruby's pronouns occasionally, though Ruby said she is never 'mad' when that happens, because she knows her mom is doing the best she can. 'It's speaking a new language,' she said. 'It's learning new terminology and words. I am new at it. I am not someone who is pretending to know much about it. And I'm going to blow it, I'm going to make mistakes. I would like to try to avoid making big mistakes.'  Jamie Lee...

    The rising British stage star who plays the title role in Diana: The Musical has told how the hardest part of embodying the late royal was trying not to 'get lost in that sadness.'  Jeanna de Waal, 30, who previously said it is a 'huge privilege' to portray the princess in the musical retelling of her life, which can be streamed on Netflix, also said she thinks Prince Harry and Prince William's mother would've 'definitely' enjoyed the show. Speaking to Elle magazine about the most challenging thing about embodying Princess Diana, Jeanna said: 'I would say it was giving my character a burning intention that's interesting for an audience to watch, even when she's going through the phase, for lack of a better word, of a victim.  'To not really get lost in that sadness. That was a collaboration with the writers, too: How long do we leave her in this place where everything is beating down on her? Her quiet power, how does it ferment?

    The team behind "The Many Saints of Newark" had a unique challenge ahead of them when they had to cast younger versions of iconic characters from "The Sopranos." The flick is a prequel to the famed mob drama featuring younger versions of many of the original show's characters, including the late James Gandolfini's son Michael, who plays Tony Soprano – the role previously inhabited by his father. Gandolfini, 22, and several of his co-stars recently spoke with Fox News about taking on the roles so famously played by other actors. "It would still be grounded in the same character because you would see physically, Tony, but you would feel someone way different, way younger," the young star said. JAMES GANDOLFINI'S SON MICHAEL REVEALS DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEIR VERSIONS OF ICONIC 'SOPRANOS' CHARACTER VideoBilly Magnussen echoed Gandolfini's comments, explaining that the physicality of his character, Paulie "Walnuts" Gualtieri, was important.

    by Zheng Tian, Penn State and Stephan J. Goetz, Penn State The Research Brief is a short take about interesting academic work. The big ideaAmericans in households with annual incomes from $50,000 to $75,000 experienced the sharpest increase in food insufficiency when the COVID-19 pandemic began – meaning that many people in the middle class didn't have enough to eat at some point within the previous seven days, according to our peer-reviewed study that will soon be published in the Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics. We also found that food banks, food pantries and similar emergency services helped reduce food insufficiency, especially for middle-income Americans, by the end of 2020. When we averaged Census Bureau survey data collected after April 23, 2020, we saw that food insufficiency rates rose among Americans at all income levels. To be sure, Americans in households earning less than $50,000 annually are the most prone to food insufficiency. That remained true during the initial months of the pandemic when places like schools, offices and restaurants remained closed to restrict the spread of COVID-19....
    (CNN) — Heat already kills more Americans than any other weather-related disaster, according to the National Weather Service — and climate change is making these extreme events even more dangerous. The Northwest’s record-breaking heat wave in June, which scientists say would have been “virtually impossible” without human-caused climate change, for instance, killed hundreds of people in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. When Hurricane Ida pummeled Louisiana early this month, a heat wave exacerbated the impacts of the storm.

A recent study from the University of California, San Diego, found that low-income neighborhoods and communities with high Black, Hispanic and Asian populations experience significantly more heat than wealthier and predominantly white neighborhoods. It reflects an earlier study that traces the legacy of neighborhood redlining, the government-sanctioned effort in the 1930s to segregate people of color by denying them housing loans and insurance. While redlining was banned in the late 1960s, remnants of the discriminatory practice are still apparent....

    NEW YORK (WABC) -- When people would ask, "what's the hardest story you ever covered," it was a no brainer to answer, after Sept. 11, 2001.But the deadly coronavirus pandemic and the deep recession that's followed, is now right up there, on equal footing.

The jump was surprising, experts and advocates say, and much more complicated than the result of successful outreach campaigns. In 2020, the number of people who identified as Native American and Alaska Native (AIAN) alone and in combination with another race was 9.7 million, up from 5.2 million in 2010. They now account for 2.9% of all the people living in the United States, according to the Census Bureau.The group was not exempt to the unprecedented growth of multiracial Americans across the country. In the past decade, they had a 160% increase that experts believe was driven by myriad factors, including more mixed-race families, the struggle that Latinos face during racial self-identification and Americans wanting to embrace their heritage even if they are not recognized as tribal members.Multiracial population grew in almost every county in the US. It doesnt mean racism is over"The numbers really do reflect the diversity that we're seeing today in the real world and in Indian...
    New York (CNN Business)The jobs that major chains in the United States are having the most trouble filling right now aren't inside their stores ringing up customers and stocking shelves. They're at their warehouses selecting items, packing boxes and loading trucks.Amazon (AMZN), Walmart (WMT), Dollar Tree (DLTR) and other retailers are dangling wage hikes, signing bonuses and improved tuition reimbursement packages to meet the staffing crunch at their warehouses. Competition for warehouse workers was already stiff before the pandemic. Stores were adding jobs at their warehouses and logistics networks as more customers ordered online. But the pandemic supercharged online shopping, adding even more pressure on retailers to staff up at warehouses. Now, retailers are scrambling to add extra warehouse staff as they ramp up for the peak holiday season amid a record number of unfilled jobs.Fifty-two percent of retailers said they were having "significant challenges" hiring warehouse employees, according to a survey of more than 80 big box, grocery, drug store and apparel chains conducted on August 4 by executive search firm Korn Ferry. Thirty-three percent of retailers surveyed said...
    This new material, AM-III, is the new strongest and hardest material in the world. It is the work of a team of researchers from Yanshan University in Hebei province (China), who were able to create a new transparent amorphous material that is so strong and hard that it can scratch diamonds. What’s more, This high-tech glass has a semiconductor bandgap, which makes it quite interesting for solar panels. “Extensive mechanical testing shows that synthesized AM-III carbon is the toughest and strongest amorphous material known to date, which pIt can scratch the diamond crystal and approach its strength. The AM carbon materials produced combine outstanding mechanical and electronic properties, and can potentially be used in photovoltaic applications that require ultra-high strength and wear resistance, ”the authors of the new study wrote in the National Science Review. The material, provisionally named AM-III, tonoted 113 gigapascals (GPA) in the Vickers hardness test. Vickers hardness, a measure of the hardness of a material, is calculated from the size of an impression produced under load by a pyramid-shaped diamond indenter. By way of comparison, mild...
    People in ICUs continue to regret they didn't get the vaccine when they had the chance. Earlier in the pandemic, there was no choice and no opportunity, but now there is. Megan Molteni/STATNews: For many, the belated realization that Covid will be ‘a long war’ sparks anger and denial Still, Americans seem shocked by the recent turn of events. Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised everyone — even those who’ve gotten Covid-19 shots — to go back to indoor masking, a decision driven by new data showing the hyper-contagious Delta variant colonizes the nose and throat of some vaccinated people just as well as the unvaccinated, meaning they may just as easily spread this new version of the virus, while stilling being protected against the worst manifestations of the disease. The prospect of contending with a prolonged outbreak phase — and adjusting again to a constantly evolving roster of restrictions — has brought back another feature of pandemic living in America: anger. x7 states now account for 1/2 of all new cases & more than 1/2 of the new hospitalizations.They are the lowest states in...

    Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s new vaccine passport system will disproportionately impact communities of color. De Blasio announced Monday that New Yorkers would soon be required to show proof of vaccination to enter certain indoor facilities like gyms, restaurants and entertainment venues. About two-thirds of adults in New York City are vaccinated, but those who aren’t are disproportionately black and Hispanic. According to city data, 71% and 46% of Asian and white residents, respectively, are fully vaccinated. Just 42% of Hispanic New Yorkers are fully vaccinated, and the rate for black New Yorkers is even less, at 31%.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Prince Philip’s funeral had to be conducted with social distancing protocols in place, which meant that Queen Elizabeth was forced to sit alone for the service. “Our thoughts immediately went to my grandmother,” Phillips, 43, told the BBC. “We’ve been trying to support her as much as we can. Everybody saw the image of Her Majesty sitting alone. It would have been the same for any other family; the hardest part is not being able to hug those closest to the person who’s been lost.” “It’s the same for a lot of families,” he continued. “There have been some great sadnesses but at the...

    (CNN)That she could fly higher than anyone on the uneven bars, we knew. That her personal story -- her dad's paralysis from an accidental fall in 2019, her Hmong heritage, her aunt and uncle who died of Covid-19, her ankle injury upon her return to the gym after pandemic lockdown -- was striking and complicated, we knew. That Suni Lee could -- and would -- win gold in the all-around in Tokyo? This we did not know, until now. Amy BassThe headlines before the Tokyo Olympics were filled with predictions about Simone Biles -- how many medals, how GOAT is the GOAT, how many moves could be named for a single human? But quickly, with Biles's departure from the floor after her disastrous vault at the start of the team competition on Tuesday, the headlines changed. They rightfully started talking about the need to prioritize the mental health of athletes and touted the resilience of the remaining members of the US women's team, who pulled together to win a silver medal for their team.With Biles out of the team competition...

    Even the Taliban oppose abortion: Texas state Rep. Matt Schaefer tweets reply to critic CNN’s Jim Acosta predicts Fox viewer ‘whiplash’ as vaccine misinformation gives way to science © Illustration: Elena Scotti/Gizmodo Let’s stipulate, first, that no Olympic sport is easy. Relaxing, kicking back, lounging around—these are not activities that will lead you to the Olympic Village. If I was an Olympian, I’d probably take issue with some physically deteriorated internet writer telling me that softball’s a relative breeze. Which is fair. But—granted that every Olympic sport requires skills of agility and concentration lacking in most of us, and especially lacking in me—there are still, inevitably, degrees of difficulty. Some sports are harder than others. But which one’s the hardest? For this week’s Giz Asks, we reached out to a number of experts to find out.

    Matthias Hangst/Getty Insider asked six sports medicine professionals to name the hardest summer Olympic sports.  They considered the physical, technical, and mental strength needed.  Water polo came up on top, followed by gymnastics and swimming.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. What's the hardest summer Olympic sport? That question is just as much up for debate as the answer.  "What's harder?" Dr. Rand McClain, chief medical officer of LCR Health who treats elite and amateur athletes, rhetorically asked Insider. "Holding your breath under water while pushing most of your lower body above water? Continuing to bicycle right at your anaerobic threshold for as long as possible? Standing opposite an opponent who just hit you squarely in the jaw ... in fear of being permanently injured or dying?"  At the Olympic level, it's all superhuman-level hard. But a few sports stand out as the most difficult of them all. Insider asked six sports medicine professionals to name the toughest sports we'll see in Tokyo based on the physical, technical, and mental strength needed. Water polo was named the most...

    Getty New York Jets defensive lineman Tanzel Smart (#92) tackles a New York Giants running back with the Los Angeles Rams on November 5, 2017, at MetLife Stadium. Just after minicamp on June 28, 2021, New York Jets defensive lineman John Franklin-Myers caught up with Harrison Glaser of Take Flight Media. The exclusive interview was live-streamed on Glaser’s official Take Flight Spittin’ Fire Podcast as “JFM” detailed what motivates him, how he first got into football, his future with the Jets and so much more. Part of that “so much more” was Franklin-Myers’ thoughts on his teammates on the defensive line, and one comment really stood out to me. “Tanzel Smart, I mean he’s one of the hardest workers I’ve ever seen in my life,” JFM told Glaser, “he makes me work harder than I’ve ever worked since I’ve been here.” You hear a lot about Quinnen Williams, Carl Lawson, Vinny Curry, Sheldon Rankins and even the underrated Folorunso Fatukasi, but people rarely focus on Smart. Of course, Franklin-Myers and the depth defensive tackle share a history together. ALL the latest...
