    Justin Fields’ performance in the stretch run of the season will set the tone in terms of what the Chicago Bears roster looks like going forward. Complicating that is the ribs injury he suffered Nov. 21 during the aggravating 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Fields missed the Thanksgiving Day victory in Detroit and Andy Dalton is set to start again Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals at Soldier Field. If you are compiling a list of young players not named Fields in position to offer hope for the future, start with outside linebacker Trevis Gipson. The 2020 fifth-round pick hasn’t gotten the attention given to wide receiver Darnell Mooney, tight end Cole Kmet, cornerback Jaylon Johnson, offensive tackles Larry Borom and Teven Jenkins or even running back Khalil Herbert, but Gipson is a player the Bears need to take a large step forward in the final six games. The others, of course, have carved out niches for themselves or are working to do that. Gipson has flashed on occasion, and with 17 games of experience entering...

"Early this morning I was walking on the beach and Onyx started barking at a pile of ocean trash that had washed during high tide," Bunchen explained. "When I came closer I saw this beautiful turtle turned upside down with a look of hopelessness and exhaustion in her eyes, her body knotted and entangled in a fishing net."

    Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen spoke out about his mental health and made it clear that he wants to help others.  Discussing one’s mental health has often been viewed as a taboo action that has unfairly received a stigma.

    The 49ers have an incredible opportunity in front of them this weekend in Seattle. I’m not talking about the potential to move to a 7-5 record, which would nearly guarantee a playoff berth for the Niners. No, as cool as that would be for San Francisco, there’s plenty of time left in the season to complete that goal. In the meantime, something larger is in play” They can put a stake in the heart of their arch-rivals. If San Francisco wins Sunday in Seattle, they’ll set the Seahawks into a tailspin that could take years to undo. How often can you not just defeat, but vanquish, a mortal enemy? It’s rarely, if ever, possible. Once-in-a-generation, at best. Take advantage when you can.

    Throughout our state, country and world, the impacts of climate change have become more evident and alarming. Rising temperatures, drought, rising sea levels, floods and other effects foreshadow a grim outlook for future generations, along with direct health effects to children, elderly people and vulnerable members of our society. While world leaders came together last month in Glasgow to work toward the goals of the Paris Agreement and the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, Minnesota must come up with real, practical steps to tackle this crisis. We don’t have time to continue appreciating the problem or to study it without acting. Real action is critical and necessary. One often-overlooked way to combat our climate crisis is utilizing renewable energy at our wastewater facilities. Such plants treat water that’s been used in our homes, schools, restaurants, factories and businesses, before it’s returned to rivers and the land. These vital plants are key to economic activity, and help protect our waters from spreading disease, excessive nutrients and toxic substances that harm fish, wildlife and people. In the next 20 years, Minnesota...

    In this article LVSVIDEO1:5501:55Omicron variant isn't a 'body blow' to travel industry: Asset management firmSquawk Box AsiaThe dip in travel stocks following the emergence of a new Covid-19 variant is a temporary "setback" that presents some attractive buying opportunities within the sector, according to investor SpringOwl Asset Management. Travel and tourism stocks were hammered after the World Health Organization classified omicron a "variant of concern." Several countries also moved to reimpose border restrictions. The immediate pullback is "not dissimilar" to that seen with the discovery of the delta variant in late 2020, but is likely to be short-lived, said SpringOwl CEO Jason Ader, noting that he is bullish on global travel stocks.It's always in the period where people are most concerned where you make the most as an investor.Jason AderCEO, SpringOwl Asset Management"It's always in the period where people are most concerned where you make the most as an investor," he told CNBC's "Squawk Box Asia" on Tuesday.

    Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) urged Americans to grasp the significance of the historic case before the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday – one that offers the nine justices “the opportunity to reconsider a wrongly decided case that has since resulted in the death of 62 million innocent babies.” The chairman of the Senate’s Pro-Life Caucus said Tuesday afternoon that as the Court hears opening arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the justices will have the chance “to restore the Constitution and defend our most fundamental right—the right to life.” The case involves Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, which would limit abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, and poses the most significant challenge in decades to the right to abortion created by the Supreme Court in its decision in Roe v. Wade in 1973. In explaining the nature of the case, Daines asserted: It’s very important that we are clear about what overturning Roe would mean for our country. Overturning Roe will not, will not, ban abortion nationwide, as many on the Left like to claim in an attempt to mislead Americans. Instead, it would return the power to state and federal lawmakers, allowing them to...

    Brian Kelly makes it abundantly clear as to why he left Notre Dame for the LSU job. Besides making bank, Brian Kelly left Notre Dame for the LSU gig for one reason only: To win championships. The aftershock is still being felt from Lincoln Riley spurning Oklahoma for USC. A day later, Kelly left an amazing job at Notre Dame for another one at LSU. Kelly has won everywhere he has been, but a national title had evaded him at Notre Dame. For him to have a shot at playing for one, the Irish could not lose a game. Now in the SEC, there is a bit more wiggle room than in South Bend. Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said at a Tuesday press conference that Kelly told him and the team that this leaving for LSU was about taking on a new opportunity. Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick said Brian Kelly "told the team today (decision) was just about another opportunity. It was right time for his family to have another opportunity, another experience.

To get the real-time updates in your inbox, subscribe here.) Shortly before the closing bell, we will be buying 50 shares of Eli Lilly (LLY) at roughly $255. Following the trade, the Charitable Trust will own 375 shares of Eli Lilly. This buy will increase Eli Lilly's weight in the portfolio from about 2.01% to 2.30%.  Shares of Eli Lilly are trading lower Monday alongside several other big pharma names. We think this slight pullback is an opportunity to beef up our position.   Our thesis in Eli Lilly is unchanged from what we wrote last Monday. We think Eli Lilly is one of the best run companies in the pharmaceutical industry with its diabetes focused portfolio that consistently delivers growth without any major loss of exclusivity risk. But the top-line numbers are only one part of the story. Eli Lilly also has a tremendous...
    (The Conversation)In the Wasatch Mountains of the western US on the slopes above a spring-fed lake, there dwells a single giant organism that provides an entire ecosystem on which plants and animals have relied for thousands of years. Found in my home state of Utah, "Pando" is a 106-acre stand of quaking aspen clones.Although it looks like a woodland of individual trees with striking white bark and small leaves that flutter in the slightest breeze, Pando (Latin for "I spread") is actually 47,000 genetically identical stems that arise from an interconnected root network. This single genetic individual weighs around 6 million tonnes. By mass, it is the largest single organism on Earth. READ MORE: There aren't enough trees in the world to offset society's carbon emissions -- and there never will beAspen trees do tend to form clonal stands elsewhere, but what makes Pando interesting is its enormous size. Most clonal aspen stands in North America are much smaller, with those in western US averaging just 3 acres.Pando has been around for thousands of years, potentially up to 14,000 years,...
    Two teenage girls have been caught on CCTV doing handstands at a level crossing as Network Rail warned the railway is 'not a photo opportunity'. The incident happened in Broxtowe, Nottinghamshire, on a stretch of track used by trains travelling at up to 80mph. Police said the girls showed a 'blatant disregard for their own safety and others'. Several people were also filmed standing on the track to take photographs, with one person lying down to pose. A recent study of the crossing, located in the Attenborough Nature Reserve, recorded 22 examples of misuse in just nine days. Network Rail route director Gary Walsh said: 'This behaviour at Nature Reserve level crossing is absolutely shocking.

    Miami Dolphins is a company based in the NFL. They have won the Super Bowl twice, including in 1972, where they were defeated all season. Only the Miami team has set this record. But the Dolphins are also a sleeping legend: no finals since 1985. Also, since the departure of their amazing quarterback Don Marino in 2000, they have been satisfied with four appearances in the playoffs, and have exhausted about twenty cubes. . So last year, in the first round of the Miami Draft, Dua Dakovilova (22) was selected for the quarterfinals of Alabama, the Jaguar of college football. Born into a Samoan family in Hawaii, Dakovilova, like its official first name Tuvanikamanule, is a high school football star. He was born right-handed but has a knack for throwing with his left hand. His father, a left-handed man, trained his son to throw with this hand. Business success in the NFL first In 2017, during his first year in Alabama, Dua Takovilova was transferred.

    CNBC anchor Jim Cramer on Friday reacted to the market sell-off over concerns of a new coronavirus variant. According to Cramer, Friday’s decline for stocks is not the right time to buy with the market uncertainty. “I’m reluctant to say this is the time to go buy a retailer or go buy a cruise ship company because there will be people who are much more risk-averse than you and I and then refuse to believe that the scientists can get this under control, so not a buy opportunity,” Cramer advised on “Squawk Box.” “Not a buying opportunity.” Cramer said if he did recommend buying something now, it would be an oil company such as Chevron. “If I had to start buying something today, I would be looking to buy Chevron,” he stated. “That would be a great call because there is demand for oil. There will be travel,” Cramer continued. “I’m trying to distinguish between my being concerned about what’s going to happen and what people are doing on the very same day where they may just decide ‘you know what, I...
    Jim CramerScott Mlyn | CNBC Friday's sharp decline for stocks, spurred by concerns over a new Covid-19 variant, is not a buying opportunity, according to CNBC's Jim Cramer. "We're going to wake up next week and find one [case] in this country, and I'm not going to recommend anyone buy anything today until we're sure that isn't going to happen. And I can't be sure that it won't," he said Friday on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street." "No panic. Let others panic. We'll profit Monday," he added. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 800 points at the opening bell, for a loss of 2%. The S&P 500 declined about 1.3%. The sell-off followed the World Health Organization warning on Thursday about a new variant that's been detected in South Africa. Cramer said that it makes sense for names like Regeneron and Pfizer to move higher, but that other areas of the market should be avoided. "I'm reluctant to say this is the time to go buy a retailer, or go buy a cruise ship company because there will be people...
    Getty Former New York Jets punter Thomas Morstead just found a new job. Sometimes as fans we grow attached to players after a short period of time. Veteran punter Thomas Morstead was the perfect example of that. The long-time New Orleans Saints fan-favorite joined the New York Jets as an injury replacement for second-year prospect Braden Mann. Everyone knew it was a short-term gig, including Morstead himself. And yet after seven games of professionalism and class — not to mention some darn-good punting — it was sad to see the 35-year old go. Maybe it was his candid message to fans or maybe it was just the way he carried himself within the organization, but Morstead was well-liked during his brief tenure in New York. More than anything, I think most fans hoped another NFL team would give him one last opportunity — even if it was never going to be with the Jets. ALL the latest Jets news straight to your inbox!

    The moment arrived in last Sunday’s 24-17 win over the New York Jets where Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had a deep-ball opportunity and connected on it for a touchdown. He stepped up to avoid initial pressure after his first read, Mike Gesicki, was covered and found an open Mack Hollins down the sideline. With the ball traveling 53.1 yards in the air, per NFL Next Gen Stats, and Hollins tip-toeing down the sideline after getting pushed by a Jets defender following the catch, it went for a 65-yard touchdown. That marked Tagovailoa’s longest scoring strike of his career and first of longer than 20 yards this season. For Tagovailoa, who is often criticized for a lack of arm strength and also recovering from fractures on his ribs and the middle finger on his throwing hand earlier this season, it had to feel like he got the proverbial monkey off his back. “Yeah, it felt really good,” Tagovailoa said. “We haven’t had much of those last year when I played and then this year too. We haven’t...

    Getty Pittsburgh Panthers product Alex Kessman has signed with the New York Jets practice squad. As expected, the New York Jets were in the market for a kicker after the Week 11 debacle. The surprise was that the franchise appears willing to give Matt Ammendola one final opportunity to prove he’s still the guy. Most undrafted first-year kickers with a 68.8% conversion rate don’t receive extra chances like this but the Jets love the Oklahoma State product’s strong leg and have tried their best to teach him the rest.

    Getty LeBron James with Kyle Kuzma. Kyle Kuzma may no longer be a member of the Los Angeles Lakers but he remains a popular player around the NBA. One thing that has always stuck out about Kuzma was his unorthodox outfit choices. He’s ambitious with his style. However, not everybody appreciates his sense of fashion. Recently, Kuzma decided to sport a pink sweater that was oversized, to say the least. The sleeves of the sweater were so long that they almost touched the floor.

    With the Oregon Ducks falling flat on their faces against the Utah Utes, the Cincinnati Bearcats have a perfect opportunity at the College Football Playoff. The Cincinnati Bearcats should be ecstatic with the way the Oregon Ducks are struggling against the Utah Utes.

Utah beating up on Oregon will create a whole new world of opportunity for the Bearcats, who have done everything within their power to prove they belong in the College Football Playoff picture.

    (CNN)On Thursday in Washington, Presidents Joe Biden and Andrés Manuel López Obrador will meet for the first time in person since 2012, when neither of the two had their current jobs. Jorge CastañedaWhile they have held several virtual encounters, and high-level American officials have traveled to Mexico recently, this first face-to-face meeting will give Biden an opportunity to review his disastrous immigration policy. From day one of his administration, it has dominated his approach toward Mexico.Although discussions on other issues -- trade, investment, drugs, security -- have taken place at high levels, migration has pushed everything else to a back burner. The same thing happened under the Trump administration, more or less: With the exception of the new trade agreement, labeled USMCA, former President Donald Trump put immigration at the top of his list, when it came to US-Mexico relations, to the exclusion of almost everything else. Biden to meet with Trudeau and López Obrador for first US-Canada-Mexico summit since 2016Biden's dismal poll numbers on immigration and Republicans' unforgiving attacks on his handling of the border have led the...
    Getty Dwayne Haskins looks on from the sidelines. When the Pittsburgh Steelers signed Dwayne Haskins in January, he got a new lease on NFL life. As a young quarterback, to get an opportunity not only to be coached by one of the best in the NFL in Mike Tomlin but also learn behind future Hall of Famer Ben Roethlisberger — had to be a dream come true, right? Especially considering that Haskins burned his bridges with the Washington Football Team almost as quickly as they were built. Just 20 months after he was selected 15th overall in the 2019 NFL draft, Haskins was released. Les Carpenter of The Washington Post detailed why: “His Washington tenure was filled with odd incidents, such as missing the final snap of his first NFL victory because he was taking selfies with fans, or the photos that emerged last week of him partying maskless hours after a loss, a violation of league coronavirus protocols. There were loads of complaints by frustrated coaches on two staffs who were stunned by his constant late arrivals to meetings,...
    Getty Miami Heat forward KZ Okpala fires up a shot during a preseason game. In a lot of ways, Miami Heat forward KZ Okpala still feels like a rookie, even as he’s in year three with the team. To date, he has appeared in just 48 games for Miami, usually as a garbage-time player. Moreover, after missing out on summer league as a rookie, the COVID-19 pandemic precluded him — and many others — from getting court time during the summer of 2020 or in the G League the following year. Consequently, there are some who expect his greatest value may come as a trade piece for the Heat. And if he’s not getting the minutes he needs to develop, they may just be right. So far this season, it has largely been more of the same for the 22-year-old. On Monday, however, Okpala finally received his first extended playing time of the season in OKC as the team was without Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo. He took advantage of the opportunity, too. In 15 minutes on the...

When the gunfire erupted Monday afternoon, Frank Niygena, a junior at Central, was in the library and saw people running.  “Then I heard the microphone, ‘shooting, shooting,’” he recalled.   While Nigyena called the event scary, he also said violence was something he is somewhat used to. Other parents and neighbors echoed those same sentiments Monday when describing their concerns.   (credit: CBS) “It needs to be addressed for the kids like us to be protected, to be safe,” Niygena said.   That issue is now before several Denver metro area community organizations, including Struggle of Love, GRASP, Mosaic, and the Youth Violence Prevention programs for Aurora and Denver.  On Tuesday, leaders of the respective organizations met in person for the second time since the shooting to talk about how to respond in the community and share resources, as well as address the bigger issue of youth violence.   While each organization has already been working to address the issue for some time, Monday’s shooting added a sense of urgency.  (credit: CBS) “This is an opportunity for us to take action,” said Christina Amparan, program manager of...
    As life for students slowly returns to normal amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, there are a number of concerns people continue to weigh: Can we trust children to keep masks on all day? What protections are in place for teachers with compromised immune systems? Is custodial staff being given enough personal protective equipment (PPE) to do their jobs safely? Added to this list, apparently, is: What happens if a teacher disseminates anti-vaccine information? One recent example of this precise scenario comes to us from Lehi, Utah, where a physical education teacher turned an assembly to honor veterans into an opportunity to spew anti-vaxx rhetoric and, for some reason, rant about socialism, as reported by Deseret News.  Larry Law, who works as a physical education teacher at Dry Creek Elementary School, is also a military veteran. On Monday, the school held a ceremony to honor veterans, which is reportedly a tradition the entire district participates in. Law was recognized for his service during the ceremony and after talking about his military service, he jumped into anti-vaccine rhetoric. Deseret News reports receiving an image of...
    Getty Moses Brown of the Dallas Mavericks goes up for a shot against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Dallas Mavericks have quite a few young players on their roster, with Moses Brown being their top center prospect. With that in mind, the Mavs are looking to win now, meaning projects like Brown don’t always get time on the floor.  That’s not to say that the 7-foot-2 big can’t contribute on a winning team, it just means he hasn’t had the chance to do so quite yet.  Luckily for Brown, he’s been given the opportunity to showcase his skills in the G League with the Texas Legends. In the past, playing down in the G League has been nothing but positive for Brown and his playing time at the NBA level. It’s been an opportunity to develop as a player and gain confidence. Could he replicate the success he’s had in the G League at the next level for the Mavs? After spending the offseason training with former Mavericks center Tyson Chandler, Brown has a real chance to be a...
    VIDEO6:1406:14Where to invest as stocks remain in a holding pattern, according to tradersTrading Nation Still waters run deep. The S&P 500 may have barely moved over the past week, but Oppenheimer's head of technical analysis, Ari Wald, said this is part of a familiar pattern for markets that could set the stage for a more energetic end to the year. "Over the last 30 years, there has been a tendency for the market to pause in mid-November ahead of a resumption of strength in December into year-end," Wald told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Monday.Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwardsWald said this consolidation is a "simple reminder" that bull markets do not always move in a straight line and that sideways action can be a normal and needed process. "The more important positive for us is what we're seeing in our internal breathwork as well as our leadership indicators as well that corroborates this bull market that we think that we're still in," he said. Gina Sanchez, chief market strategist at Lido Advisors, said a market pause makes even more sense this...
    In this article WMTJesse Grant | CNBCAs the cost of groceries and household goods rises, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said the big-box retailer will lean into its longtime strategy: Undercutting rivals on price. In an interview with CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" on Tuesday, he said the company sees inflation as an opportunity to gain market share and emphasize its commitment to value. "That's our purpose," he said. "We save people money and help them live a better life. Those are the words that came out of [Walmart founder] Sam Walton's mouth. He loved to fight inflation. So do we." That means Walmart is absorbing rather than passing on some of the higher costs that have come from fuel, shipping, labor and more — even as that weighs on short-term profitability, he said. Its cost inflation is higher than its retail inflation. He said the retailer is striking a balance of delivering for shareholders and staying to true to its discounter roots for customers. "We're proud to try and hold prices down," he said. "Our conversations with suppliers today, tomorrow...
    Getty The Seahawks continue to make moves. A corresponding move by the Seattle Seahawks was likely after Russell Wilson was activated from the Injured Reserve list. After the team’s loss to the Packers, the Seahawks revealed they released quarterback Jake Luton who was on the team’s practice squad for Week 10. The Seahawks also re-signed tight end Tyler Mabry days after releasing him to create room on the active roster for Wilson and Dee Eskridge. The former Oregon State tight end signed to the Seahawks practice squad. Luton became the odd man out after the Seahawks claimed former Colts quarterback Jacob Eason off waivers in October. The former Washington Huskies standout admitted it was “crazy” that he was able to return close to home. “I mean, it’s crazy, it’s just that’s kind of how all this stuff works out,” Eason noted during an October 22 press conference. Obviously being from here, it’s pretty cool, pretty unique. So I’m excited for this opportunity. I’m super fortunate and thankful [to] Coach Carroll and his staff for...
    Q: Last night, we once again lost out to homebuyers in a multiple-offer situation. What is infuriating is that we were not allowed an opportunity to better our purchase offer after its presentation. In each case, our buyer’s agent presents our purchase offer, and within hours, learns that the property is under contract with someone else. Our buyer’s agent insists that we should have received an oral or written counteroffer before the home went under contract. In other words, our buyer’s agent says we should have received a phone call or counteroffer opportunity to “change price, terms or conditions that best suit the seller’s needs.” Regardless, after presenting last night’s offer, our buyer’s agent proactively had our loan officer call the seller’s agent and leave a voicemail lauding our qualification. Another 15 minutes later, our buyer’s agent called the seller’s agent and raised our offer price $20,000 by way of voicemail. Minutes later, our buyer’s agent received a rejection of our offer. Something is amiss. Why are we not getting oral or written counteroffers as our buyer’s agent insists is...
    A new mixed-use development has opened on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and Good Hope Road in Southeast, D.C., and the city hopes it will turn into a gateway for business opportunity and job growth. The three-story complex in Anacostia is anchored by Enlightened Inc., a Black-owned cybersecurity company that moved from Connecticut Avenue and K Street NW to be part of this project. More Washington D.C. News Antwanye Ford, president and CEO of Enlightened Inc., spoke at the ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday. He said that the company was able to create 35 new jobs with the move, 25 of which are hires from Ward 8. “One of the things that’s important to me is to be able to provide that opportunity for folks in Anacostia,” Ford said. “To be able to be an example of what’s possible.” Additional tenants include a soon-to-be-opened restaurant and a Capitol One Café branch — a full service coffee bar where you can also get your banking done. Construction began on a larger complex across the street at 1909...
              moreby Ric Grenell and Gloria Romero   When students are armed with a world class education, they can break down barriers and achieve their deepest dreams. However, in America today, big government and big unions are preventing students from receiving a quality education by forcing American kids to attend the school closest to them, even when it is totally failing. There is no school competition for kids who can’t afford to opt-out of the shoddy school they are forced to attend. This policy and practice especially impacts poor and minority children. But in our home state of California, we’ve had enough of failing government monopolies. We are launching a ballot initiative that will deliver educational freedom to every child in the state, regardless of where they live or how much income their parents earn. We have all seen government schools that transition from safe havens for learning and hope into depressing institutions that fall short of educating tomorrow’s leaders. Parents are mad, taxpayers are frustrated, and our teachers are not supported by their union bosses. Nowhere is that reality truer than in...
    (CNN)Never in the modern histories of the United States and China has antagonism been so high ahead of a major leaders' summit. President Joe Biden and President Xi Jinping will meet virtually on Monday after a tumultuous start to the Biden administration's turn to manage relations with Beijing. After years insisting the US is not trying to contain China, no one in Washington is pretending anymore. While Beijing would prefer that Washington mind its own business, the list of US complaints is long and growing. Most alarming is China's intense pressure on the self-governing island of Taiwan amid a gathering debate in Washington about what to do in case of an invasion and deep concern about China's build-up of conventional and nuclear weapons. Biden's administration also accuses Xi's government of overplaying its hand in territorial disputes in the South China Sea, committing genocide against Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang province, and eviscerating democracy in Hong Kong. It's also frustrated that China has not done more to explain the origins of Covid-19 in Wuhan. The two leaders come into the talks --...

    ELGIN, Ill. (WLS) -- While Chicago students were out of school Friday to get vaccinated, students in Illinois' second largest school district, Elgin U-46, were given the chance to get vaccinated against the virus at school.With a congratulations certificate and a cool Band-Aid, students at Elgin's Coleman Elementary were proud of their new vaccination status."It feels good because, I was kinda of jealous because my brothers and sisters were vaccinated and I wasn't," 6th grader Jose Ramos said.Fifth grader Makayla Krysiak said she wanted to get the shot "so I can be protected like everyone in my family is."U-46 students ages 5 to 11 are being given the opportunity to get vaccinated in school. At Coleman, the library is being used as the vaccination center, though the Illinois Dept. of Public Health would not allow ABC7's cameras inside."We chose to do it during a school day," District U-46 Supt. Tony Sanders said. "We aimed for Friday's so students would have the opportunity for the weekend to recuperate."Sanders said over a period of three different Fridays, vaccinations will be available at...
    Nearly 400 U.S. citizens left behind at the end of the evacuation from Kabul have escaped Afghanistan, and all others eager to leave have been given the chance, according to Secretary of State Antony Blinken. “Since the end of the evacuation mission, we have evacuated roughly 380 Americans,” Blinken told reporters Friday. “As of the 10th of November, all U.S. citizens who have requested assistance from the United States government to depart Afghanistan and who we’ve identified as prepared to depart and having the necessary documents have been given an opportunity to do so.” Those figures exceed the estimates in the hours after the U.S. military departure from Afghanistan when Blinken acknowledged there was “a small number of Americans, under 200 and likely closer to 100, who remain in Afghanistan and want to leave.” State Department officials have emphasized those figures would change as more people surfaced and asked for assistance. However, veteran groups and other advocates for at-risk Afghan nationals have argued those totals understate the scale of the abandonment. “There was still, at the time everything imploded,...

The business combination would have provided Wynn Resorts with $640 million in cash to be used on company operations and support new growth initiatives at Wynn Interactive.  The decision to nix the deal looks to be related to the change in strategic direction management outlined this past week on the third-quarter earnings call.Loading chart...

    In this article DISVIDEO2:5302:53Trading Nation: Is there still opportunity for profits with Disney's stock?Trading NationDisney shares plummeted Thursday, falling 7% in their worst session since June 2020, after the media giant reported a subscriber growth slowdown in its streaming service. The stock was the worst performer in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Its losses pulled it into a bear market, having fallen 20% from a March peak. But traders are split on whether this latest sell-off spells opportunity or not. Fairlead Strategies founder Katie Stockton, for example, says Thursday's drop looks like a "shakeout." She also sees it as a chance to buy at a discount. "A shakeout is essentially a false breakdown and this is actually kind of an exciting move for me to see from Disney because it's been such a laggard since March," Stockton told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Thursday. "Into this gap down we have obviously emotionally-charged selling, it could be a selling climax of sorts especially with the volume running heavy."Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwards"There is support on the chart between about $153 and $155...
    Getty Defensive end Boogie Basham goes through a drill at Buffalo Bills practice. The deepest position group for the Buffalo Bills just got unexpectedly thinner, and a little-used rookie could see a big opportunity arise from the crisis. The team announced on Thursday that defensive lineman Justin Zimmer has been placed on injured reserve after he suffered a season-ending knee injury. Zimmer had been part of the deep rotation that head coach Sean McDermott utilizes on the defensive line, making eight total tackles including two tackles for a loss and one sack while appearing in six games. With Zimmer out, the Bills could lean more heavily on their second-round pick who so far has only appeared in two games. We’ve placed DT Justin Zimmer on Injured Reserve and signed CB Cam Lewis from the practice squad.

    AUSTIN, Texas – Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) is a fighter. Whether it’s surviving a near-fatal accident that left him paralyzed or leading his state through the coronavirus pandemic, Abbott isn’t afraid of adversity, and he has faced plenty of it from the “Brandon” administration. In spite of President Joe Biden’s open-border policies, anti-drilling agenda, and vaccine authoritarianism, Abbott told Breitbart News that Texas is and remains America’s “Opportunity State.” On a windy afternoon in mid-October at the University of Texas’s football stadium, Abbott – the 48th and current governor of Texas – sat at the fifty-yard line for a broad exclusive interview with Breitbart News’ On the Hill video series. During the interview, Abbott pitched himself as the counterbalance to President Biden’s “disastrous policies” and federal overreach — things so often seen when the Democrats hold power. It’s a role with which he is very familiar. As Texas attorney general, Abbott sued the Obama administration 27 times. Since Biden took office, Abbott has continued to push back against Democrats, including being one of the first governors to fully re-open his state for business and terminate...
