    Chishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim took the opportunity on Thanksgiving to make a grand gesture to those in need. The "All My Children" actress, 40, and luxury real estate tycoon, 44, spent part of their holiday giving back to the Los Angeles community in a big way when the couple volunteered their time to serve hot meals to the homeless at the Los Angeles Mission. "Had such a great day volunteering with @thelamission who hosted such an amazing Thanksgiving for the homeless of LA today," Stause captioned a photo of herself and her "Selling Sunset" costar and boyfriend.  "This is a cause close to my heart and I feel like speaking on it helps dismiss the conventional stereotype some people have of who these people are," she added of the successful event.

    Vince Biegel took a circuitous route to land back on the Miami Dolphins’ active roster this week ahead of Sunday’s home game against the Carolina Panthers. After missing the entire 2020 season with a torn Achilles, the outside linebacker who contributed significantly in 2019 suffered a calf injury in training camp. He was released with an injury settlement in early September, freeing him up to join another team. But Biegel found himself re-signing for a spot back on the Dolphins’ practice squad in October and was activated for two games this season. With fellow outside linebacker Brennan Scarlett placed on injured reserve following Sunday’s win at the New York Jets, Biegel was the obvious choice to replace him on the team’s 53-man roster. “I think the game of football is a journey and sometimes the gift is the struggle,” said Biegel on Wednesday. “It’s been quite a journey this year, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m just thankful to be back with a great organization like the Dolphins and help this team come out...
    Vince Biegel took a circuitous route to land back on the Miami Dolphins’ active roster this week ahead of the team’s Sunday home game against the Carolina Panthers. Already missing the entire 2020 season with a torn Achilles, the outside linebacker that contributed significantly in 2019 was injured with a calf strain in training camp this year. He was released with an injury settlement in early September, freeing him up to join another team. Biegel found himself signing back onto the Dolphins’ practice squad in October, elevated for two different games and, with fellow outside linebacker Brennan Scarlett placed on injured reserve following Sunday’s win at the New York Jets, Biegel was the natural replacement, signed for good to the 53-man roster. “I think the game of football is a journey and sometimes the gift is the struggle,” said Biegel on Wednesday. “It’s been quite a journey this year, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m just thankful to be back with a great organization like the Dolphins and help this team come out and win ball games.”...

    Did Mac Jones just ruin any chance of rookie of the year with his take on Thanksgiving desserts? Depends who you ask.  The New England Patriots quarterback revealed his controversial take during an appearance Monday on WEEI’s "Merloni & Fauria," where he began by saying he "doesn’t really care" about what’s on the table at Thanksgiving dinner.  PATRIOTS’ BILL BELICHICK’S FAVORITE THANKSGIVING DISH: ‘LOAD ‘EM UP’  "I just eat whatever we have," Jones said.  "I don’t like apple pie either," he said after also dismissing pecan pie.

    (CNN)We're living through a life-changing pandemic, an assault on democracy and a reckoning with racial justice. But it's the economy and inflation souring the overall mood for Americans.There's plenty of cause for concern on social, political and health issues. Covid-19 cases are up in most states, signaling yet again that the virus is here to stay. A series of court cases proved the national reckoning on issues of race is as complicated and unsolvable as ever. And looming behind every story on politics is the expected, attempted comeback of former President Donald Trump, who this time last year was plotting a coup. Sometimes these stories dovetail, as when Trump met with Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who was recently acquitted after killing two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last summer.On Wednesday, meanwhile, President Joe Biden pointed to the conviction of three White men in the death of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, as proof that "our justice system (is) doing its job."What may touch more Americans more directly every day, however, is the state of the US economy.Read MoreHere is the...
    ‘Tis the season to be thankful for a bountiful harvest. Coronavirus and its variants made 2021 a difficult year in many ways for many people, especially economically speaking. Yet numerous business patterns charted a course to be grateful for – even if you haven’t been lucky enough to be helped by any or all of these moves. In the spirit of holiday gratitude, I offer my appreciation of 10 trends in the commercial world that we’ve witnessed since our last traditional turkey meal — without noting the conundrums, complications, consequences or controversies tied to these swings.

    (CNN)The season of giving thanks can't come quickly enough for some parents.Four in five parents who responded to a poll from the University of Michigan Health say children today are not grateful enough. Parents who responded to the poll say they are teaching their children the magic words, "please and thank you." However, when it comes to actions over words, the children -- and parents -- could be falling short, said Sarah Clark, research scientist at the University of Michigan and co-director of the poll.Nearly all parents say it's possible to teach children gratitude, and three-fourths of parents say teaching gratitude is a priority. The most common ways parents teach children gratitude are "please and thank you," followed by enforcing chores. Just over one-third of parents use strategies like donating toys or clothes and saying a prayer of thanks."My hope is a poll like this causes some parents to stop and think about, 'Are we being purposeful about teaching our kids how to be grateful?'" Clark said.Read MoreFor teens who are glued to social media, this 4-step plan can help...

    Let's talk turkey. Families across the country will soon say thanks over a Thanksgiving dinner that requires more financial stuffing than it did in 2020 due to the rising inflation gripping the nation. The cost of putting together a full turkey dinner with all the fixings is 4% to 5% higher than it was in 2020, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation. JPMORGAN ISSUES FALLING PROJECTIONS FOR IPHONE SALES AS APPLE BATTLES SUPPLY CRISIS "When you go to the grocery store and it feels more expensive, that's because it is," said Veronica Nigh, senior economist at the bureau. Food prices rose 3.7% throughout 2021, standing out from a 20-year average of roughly 2.4%, she said. Multiple factors have come together to increase the cost of Thanksgiving dinner, which stood at roughly $47 in 2020 for a meal serving 10 people or fewer, according to a report . These include growing transportation costs, labor shortages, and supply-chain disruptions, Nigh said. "Agriculture is like everybody else — it's impacted by the supply...

    Driver who plunged off Wisconsin ramp thankful to be alive
    MILWAUKEE (AP) — A driver who survived when his pickup truck plunged about 70 feet (21 meters) off a slippery interchange exit ramp in Wisconsin said he feels thankful to be alive. Richard Lee Oliver, in an interview that aired Thursday on ABC's “Good Morning America," said he was on his way to his mother's house when his truck hit snow on the shoulder of a Milwaukee-area overpass. “There was just too much snow on the side of the road that once the tires got into like two foot of snow there’s no controlling a vehicle of any kind," said Oliver, who was hospitalized with a broken back and a broken leg, among other injuries. A Wisconsin Department of Transportation camera captured Saturday's crash in which the pickup can be seen flipping over the a barrier wall and plummeting to the interstate below as cars pass by.

    (CNN)Between a divisive election and a world-changing pandemic, many Americans may hope to find a sense of normalcy in the approaching holidays. For me, however, this season will be anything but normal considering it will be the first I experience outside of a prison cell in over 20 years.In 1999, I made the terrible decision to participate in crimes that devastated several families and struck fear in an entire community. By the time I was 20 years old, I'd joined with two crime partners in a series of robberies, the last of which tragically resulted in a man's death. Jason BryantAs I was ushered into a squad car and watched my parents cry tears of heartbreak, I had the sobering realization that my choices not only harmed my victim's family but brought a parallel form of despair to my own. When a California judge sentenced me to 26-years-to life, I made the decision to stop hurting people and start doing something positive with my time. The challenge I faced was accomplishing this while incarcerated. Riddled with gangs, violence and race-based...

    VACAVILLE (CBS13) –  It’s a Thanksgiving like no other for many who are still picking up the pieces from one of the worst fire seasons in state history.  Ken and Marci Albers lost more than a dozen classic cars and a house full of antiques when the LNU Lightning Complex fire ripped through Vacaville over the summer. “You know you can buy another couch or sofa or whatever. But the family items, antiques, pictures that we didn’t have time to get out, that’s the stuff that’s sad to lose,” said Ken. “I have no relatives that would have had the pictures that I had so I have absolutely nothing left of my mom and my dad,” said Marci. While they have every reason to be deflated this holiday season, they’re finding more reasons to be thankful. “I’ve had ladies send me Jenny dolls to help replace my collection.  I don’t know if that will ever happen since I had so many, but it’s just the thoughtfulness of people that we have found has been unreal,” said Marci.

    Knicks fans are parched for a winner but have shown staggering patience, too. With the new Knicks administration failing to significantly upgrade the roster in free agency despite attempts, there appears little to be thankful for with the season opener beckoning Dec. 22. Or is there? Perhaps the Knicks are headed to an eighth straight non-playoff season — even with the expanded 10-team format. But here’s why Thanksgiving should be filled with thanks — not just tanks. 1. David Fizdale is in the rearview mirror, though he’s still getting paid by James Dolan for the next two seasons. But Dolan hopes he’ll have Tom Thibodeau around to pay for five years. The Knicks saw patches of respectability after a 4-18 start after which Fizdale was bounced for interim Mike Miller. Thibodeau and his eight assistant coaches will have the club more prepared for every tipoff than any coach in the league. 2.

Most people who read this column, even if they aren't fully aware, have a long list of blessings to count (most of the time, anyway). Yes, even in the middle of a pandemic. For all the challenges and deep loss this year has delivered around the world, there is much left over to embrace.Family. Friends. Love. Health. Freedom from war and natural disaster. Imagination. Community. A roof over our heads. Common decency. Hope. Opportunity. Memories. Financial stability. Favorite places. Days off work. Good weather. The golden age of television. Books. Music. Ice cream. Weekends. A friendly exchange. Something good that happened today. Something bad that didn't happen today. A good cup of coffee.You may not have everything you want or even need, but that probably leaves buckets -- nay, container ships -- full of tangible and conceptual items for which to be grateful. Things can always be better, but they can always be worse. It often depends on how you look at that proverbial glass of water.To get in...
    EXCLUSIVE: On Thanksgiving, Mike Rowe will be expressing his appreciation for the everyday Americans who kept 2020 running."This year, I’m thankful for the UPS driver, the FedEx driver and the Amazon Prime driver,” the former “Dirty Jobs” host told Fox News. “I’m also thankful for the people at Zoom (even though I curse them) and the guy who just upgraded my internet connection (even though I had to wait a month for him to get to me.).” “I’m thankful that my parents are still healthy and celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary,” the 58-year-old continued. “I’m thankful for the opportunity to run a foundation that’s making a real difference in people’s lives… Mostly though, I’m thankful to be living in America, during the most remarkable year of my life. With the possible exception of 2021.” There’s also one thing that this year has taught Rowe to be especially grateful for.

    As the Giants fan drops back and scans the field and looks to complete the socially distanced 6-foot gravy pass at the Thanksgiving table, there is more to be thankful for on this day than the fact he or she is not a Jets fan. This isn’t 2017, when your Ben McAdoo-Steve Spagnuolo Giants were 2-8 and on their way to 3-13. This isn’t 2018, when your Pat Shurmur Giants were 3-7 and on their way to 5-11. This isn’t 2019, when your Shurmur Giants were 2-8 and on their way to 4-12. This is 2020, when 3-7 gets you an invitation to the NFC Least division sweepstakes and the automatic playoff — Playoffs? Playoffs? You kiddin’ me? Playoffs? — berth that goes with winning it. Joe Judge: “This is really the starting point for the division. Everyone’s really on equal ground. The only thing that matters is what we do from this point forward.” Bring on the Bengals. Bring on Brandon Allen. Logan Ryan: “This game is the biggest game of the year in my opinion.” Logan Ryan again:...

    EL PASO, Texas – San Antonio physicians, nurses, medical technicians and pharmacists are providing care or services in El Paso after the U.S. Department of Defense deployed 60 medical personnel members as coronavirus cases surged in the city. “It’s no secret that this COVID-19 virus has sort of swept the nation at a critical status here in El Paso,” said First Lt. Ian Krug, a U.S. Air Force critical care nurse. On the front lines of COVID, Texas nurses confront life and death Krug is part of the medical team supporting hospitals in El Paso. He arrived in the border city on Nov. 6. “What we’re doing here with myself and my team at University Medical Center is providing the absolute best medical care that we can,” Krug said. Krug, originally from Detroit, was stationed at Brooke Army Medical Center in September 2019. This year, he was fighting COVID-19 on the frontlines in San Antonio and cared for critically ill patients. This helped prepare him for what was to come in El Paso. “What they’re doing is they’re integrating us...
    UPDATE: Since the interview, Cuomo said his Thanksgiving plans have changed. BREAKING: @NYGovCuomo will NOT be seeing his 89-year old mother & daughters for Thanksgiving—his senior advisor @RichAzzopardi confirms 1hr after the gov said he’d be celebrating with them on @WAMCNews. Also after a ton of backlash following the unveiling of his holiday plans. pic.twitter.com/Z0Chb9VocC — Bernadette Hogan (@bern_hogan) November 23, 2020 During an interview with WAMC on Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said we should have “a deeper, more spiritual, more principled Thanksgiving,” where we’re thankful for people like “the seniors who sacrificed so much,” and that “if that’s what you’re thankful for, and that’s what you’re honoring, then you’re respectful in your behavior. Be alone physically, be connected spiritually. That’s what this real Thanksgiving would be about, if you took out the commercialization, right?” Cuomo also said his plans for Thanksgiving are to be with his mother and two of his daughters. Cuomo said, [relevant remarks begin around 14:30] “The story is, my mom is going to come up and two of my girls, is the current...
    (CNN)The gratitude is being dished out in platitudes this Thanksgiving."This Thanksgiving's a bust, but try to focus on gratitude," advised one health site, a precursor to a warning to avoid gathering outside our immediate households for the holidays."Share gratitude, not COVID this Thanksgiving," another warned. Should you visit your family for the holidays? Heres Dr. Leana Wens answerYou can serve up a portion of gratitude for your Thanksgiving this year, but don't expect me to join you. I am going to focus on eating my feelings with extra helpings of sweet potato pie that I don't have to share with anyone -- because no one else is coming to Thanksgiving. In a year when a once-in-a-century pandemic collided with social and political unrest, an unhinging economy and job market, and increasingly severe weather events, I vacillate between feeling something more akin to sheer terror. That's on the opposite end of the spectrum from gratitude. My cornucopia is impacted by supply chain shortages, global trade wars and an impending dark winter that is coming more quickly than I'd like.Read MoreI have...
    I enjoy writing about inspirational and ordinary people I meet along the way and convey their message of hope. For me, it’s more than a hobby. But I want to take a few moments and reflect back on the year I have experienced with gratitude in the spirit of Thanksgiving. I am not boastful — I am thankful. What a ride it has been since my first blog about four years ago. To date, I’ve written 224 blogs. My most viewed post on my website was on Aug. 8, 2017 when I wrote about Braxton, a young boy who was presumed dead after he drowned in the family swimming pool. But God had other plans. That post had more than 7,000 hits on my website alone in one day and was viewed by more than 3.4 million people. But fast forward to today. What a year 2020 has been, in more ways than one. You may have heard about an obscure virus floating around the world, but I won’t go into detail about that, or the less-covered presidential election. This...
    Ready or not, we are beginning Thanksgiving week — a time traditionally set aside to express our gratitude to God by gathering for feasts and fellowship with family and friends. But feasts and fellowship are being discouraged this year to guard against the spread of the coronavirus pandemic — a modern-day plague of biblical proportions.  In the United States, over 255,000 people have died from COVID-19 at this writing, and more than 12 million people have been stricken by the coronavirus that causes the disease. Around the world, over 58 million people have been infected and more than 1.37 million people have died.       Many small businesses, especially restaurants, have already gone out of business or are on the verge of collapse. Millions of people are unemployed and desperately short of cash. Many schools are shuttered and providing only online learning. Sporting events have been canceled, senior citizens are staying at home almost all the time, and family vacations remain a distant fantasy. DR. NICOLE SAPHIER: CORONAVIRUS AND THANKSGIVING — HERE’S MEDICAL ADVICE FOR SAFE HOLIDAYS Looking forward to the...

    Cancer-stricken talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh said he’s “day to day” but thankful that he’s around for Election Day because that was one of his goals when he first announced in February that he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. “I woke up this morning and I thanked God that I did, and I have had a very, very good fortune with the course of treatment that I’ve had and I’m just thrilled to be here,” Limbaugh said on “Fox & Friends.” "I’m thrilled to be here and to be able to be part of this today. This was an objective.” RUSH LIMBAUGH ANNOUNCES HE HAS 'ADVANCED LUNG CANCER' Limbaugh told the Fox News morning show that he didn’t want to spend too much time talking about his sickness but is thrilled to be around to watch Election Day results come in later this evening.   “Being here today was one of the objectives,” Limbaugh said. “I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for my family. They have, particularly my wife… this stuff is hard… I have been the beneficiary of some of the most loving and devoted...
    Thousands sent home as virus gnarls school reopenings You dont have to avoid restaurants, but there are some coronavirus risks you should be aware of Friday 5: Ryan Newman ‘thankful’ to be heading back to Daytona Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Ryan Newman admits he’ll feel some emotion returning to Daytona International Speedway this weekend for the first time since he was hospitalized after his last-lap crash in the Daytona 500. Newman was on his way to winning the season-opening race in February when a push from Ryan Blaney’s car unsettled Newman’s Ford and sent it into the wall and upside down. Corey LaJoie’s car slammed into Newman’s, which slid across the finish line on its roof. The No. 6 Ford came to rest just beyond the exit of pit road. Rescue workers needed 15 minutes, 40 seconds to extricate Newman. He was sent directly to Halifax Medical Center. Newman walked out of the Daytona Beach hospital 42 hours later holding the hands of his two daughters. “I guess after February I’m...
    Getty CINCINNATI, OH - OCTOBER 4: Darqueze Dennard #21 of the Cincinnati Bengals attempts to tackle Jeremy Maclin #19 of the Kansas City Chiefs while being blocked by Chris Conley #17 of the Kansas City Chiefs during the fourth quarter at Paul Brown Stadium on October 4, 2015 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cincinnati defeated Kansas City 36-21. (Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images) The Falcons added some much-needed cornerback secondary earlier this month by signing former Cincinnati Bengals corner Darqueze Dennard. Dennard was originally headed to Jacksonville to play for the Jaguars, but the two parties couldn’t come to a contract agreement. But now, he’s thankful to be coming home to his home state. “One thing about me is I’m an even-keeled person,” Dennard told AJC. “For me, everything happened for a reason. I believe in the man above. I think God had to handle things accordingly. He didn’t see me fit in Jacksonville, so that’s why it didn’t happen. So it wasn’t me really fighting or worrying about it. It made me trust in the man above. He had a plan...
    Idris Elba has declared he feels 'very lucky to be alive', after he and his wife Sabrina Dhowre tested positive for novel coronavirus earlier this year. In the earlier stages of the pandemic this spring, the 47-year-old heartthrob was forced to quarantine in New Mexico after discovering he'd contracted COVID-19, a virus which his American wife Sabrina, 30, later caught.
