    Yankees trade rumors: Could Luke Voit and Gio Urshela be on the way out? By: Alexander Wilson October 16, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditWith the rumor mill starting to fire up as we head closer toward the hot stove months, the New York Yankees will once again be a focal point among negotiations and discussions. The Bombers are always involved with some of the biggest names in baseball, but this time they could elect to be sellers and make some significant changes. While manager Aaron Boone and GM Brian Cashman were non-committal toward big off-season moves, the Yankees need to make some changes to bolster their team. Ranging from the starting pitching rotation to their defensive efficiency in the infield, there are a few ways the Yankees can improve their chances of success in 2021. Now, I would never recommend trading away your best...
    A Seattle man has been identified as the third person in the US to have been infected twice with the novel coronavirus. The unidentified man, who is in his 60s, first contracted COVID-19 in March at a nursing home in Washington state and became so ill that he had to be hospitalized for 40 days. Five months later, in July, he tested positive again after moving to a different facility, but this time his illness was mild and he recovered. Genetic testing has since revealed that the man was infected by two different strains.  Researchers say that because the patient was not very sick during his second bout, it suggests that he developed some antibodies during the first bout, even if not enough to prevent reinfection.  A Seattle nursing home resident in his 60s first tested positive for the coronavirus on March 6 and then again on July 29....
    A new episode of The Masked Singer aired Wednesday, October 15, on Fox, meaning another celebrity was unmasked. This week, it was Baby Alien. As seen on Talent Recap’s YouTube channel, which you can watch here, Baby Alien sang George Michael’s iconic ’80s hit “Faith” for their debut performance. Jenny McCarthy first initial guess was Ralph Macchio while Nicole Scherzinger went with David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc due to the Friends clues. Ken Jeong, who is known for his wild theories, said Freddie Prinze Jr. Last night, Baby Alien switched it up and performed Imagine Dragons’ “It’s Time.” Their versatility only made the panel more confused about who they could be. Guest panelist Joel McHale assumed it may be Australian actor Eric Bana. Scherzinger noticed the Eastern European accent, which made her think it might be Sacha Baron Cohen or Jeff Dunham due to his famous puppet work. Jeong...
    On Wednesday night, another episode of The Masked Singer aired on Fox. One contestant that has everyone talking is Seahorse, who continues to make a big impression on the panelists — Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke, and Ken Jeong. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, they sang Rihanna’s iconic single “Only Girl (In the World)” for their debut performance. From the first time hearing them sing, it was clear that Seahorse was a female vocalist with some pipes. Last night, they showcased their range and sang Celine Dion’s hugely-popular “My Heart Will Go On,” which is taken from the Titanic soundtrack. Host Nick Cannon, who used to be married to Mariah Carey, expressed that it was “one of the best vocals” he’s ever heard. The panel’s initial guesses for Seahorse were Bebe Rexha, Hailee Steinfeld, and Halsey. However, after hearing Seahorse perform again, another famous singer has been thrown...
    World Health Organization (WHO) Chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan on January 12, 2020 in Geneva.FABRICE COFFRINI | AFP via Getty Images Healthy young people might not get an the coronavirus vaccine until 2022 as public health officials focus on immunizing the elderly and other vulnerable groups first, top officials from the World Health Organization said Wednesday. Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, WHO's chief scientist, said health workers, frontline workers and the elderly will likely be offered a vaccine first, though prioritization details are still being worked out by the WHO and its advisory groups. And, of course, a vaccine for the virus has yet to be deemed safe and effective by the WHO, the European Union or the United States. "People tend to think that on the first of January or the first of April, I'm going to get the vaccine, and then things will be back to normal," Swaminathan said. "It's not...

Everlean Rutherford, of Cobb County, Georgia waited in line for nine hours and 38 minutes, chronicling the saga in tweets and interviews. She started out excited: "This is going to be an election where there are unprecedented numbers of people voting. I love it. Get out and vote!" she told a reporter. “[E]veryone is so nice.

Hours in, she tweeted: "I went from 'yay love seeing all these people early voting' to 'I've been here over four hours, hungry and ready to go.' Yeah this is voter suppression. It should never take this long to vote. Especially early voting."...
    Researchers in the US have confirmed the country's first case of a patient becoming reinfected with the novel coronavirus.   According to the report, a unnamed 25-year-old man, who lives in Washoe County, Nevada, tested positive in mid-April after showing signs of mild illness. After recovering, and testing negative twice, he started experiencing similar symptoms in late May. He tested positive again for COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, but this time, his disease progressed to a severe case and he required hospitalization along with oxygen therapy.  The results, which were published in a pre-print study in August, were released by The Lancet Infectious Diseases on Monday. The team says that, although further research is needed, the findings suggest that contracting the virus does not guarantee total immunity and that everyone should strictly follow guidelines including masks, social distancing and hand-washing.   Researchers in the US have confirmed the country's...
    UFC 254 could be the first live event with fans since the pandemic began in mid-March. In two weeks, the UFC will wrap-up its second stint on Fight Island with ablockbuster pay-per-view card that features Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje for the undisputed lightweight title. There’s a chance, however, that the event will look slightly different than the ones of the past six months. According to an exclusive report from Hoteller Middle East, pending approval from government officials, the event will allow a limited number of fans into the Flash Forum on fight night. The proposal has been an ongoing discussion that will be announced soon, if approved. Rashed Al Saeed, the event’s destination marketing coordinator, has played an intricate role in making Fight Island a safe bubble for fighters and staff. Al Saeed is looking into seeing how they can separate people in the bubble from the spectators, but still...
    (CNN)Princeton University will name a residential college after a Black woman for the first time in the institution's history, according to a statement from the school. Hobson College, named for Mellody Hobson, will be built on the site of what was Wilson College. Princeton's residential colleges provide housing and dining to students.Hobson, co-CEO of Ariel Investments and one of Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People" in 2015, graduated from Princeton in 1991. A residential college at Princeton will be named after a Mellody Hobbs. The residential college that will now bear Hobson's name was initially named after former President Woodrow Wilson, a former Princeton president. The name was changed earlier this year to First College after the university's Board of Trustees decided that Wilson's "racist thinking and policies" made him an "inappropriate namesake," the school said.Wilson once called racial segregation "a benefit" and said slaves "were happy and well-cared for."...
    Economists: California wildfires could cause at least $10B in damage These are the worlds most historic restaurants Five NFL teams that should be sellers at the trade deadline The NFL trade deadline is fast approaching, with all 32 teams having until Nov. 3 to strike deals that can improve their rosters or add draft picks that can help build for the future.

    WWE Draft 2020 saw its first major Superstar “shakeup.” After retaining each brand’s champions, SmackDown struck first. Many faces remain loyal to the brands, but as the first change, the Monday Night Messiah is headed to SmackDown! WWE Champion Drew McIntyre became the first pick, beating “The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns. Tonight was the night one for the annual WWE Draft. As Stephanie McMahon made her way onto the stage, she asserted how important the draft is. In the very first pick of the night, the red brand retained WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. SmackDown followed the same route as they retained the Universal Champion, Roman Reigns. Hence, the world championships remain brand exclusive. Up next, RAW retained its Women’s Champion Asuka. The first shock came after this as SmackDown secured the Monday Night Messiah, Seth Rollins. To close the round, Raw retained the Hurt Business, with all 4 of...
    NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal confessed that he voted for the first time in his life this election because he doesn't want to be a 'hypocrite' after promoting voting initiatives. O'Neal made the revelation on Wednesday during an episode of The Big Podcast With Shaq, in which he said he's gone 30 years without ever casting a ballot. 'Ladies and gentlemen, I have a confession. You know I always like being honest on my podcast,' he told his co-hosts and audience. 'I’ve never voted before, America. But now I’m doing all these voting campaigns, and you know one thing I never like to do is be a hypocrite.  'So the other day, I got my absentee ballot...In other words America, I voted for the first time, and it feels good. Shaquille O'Neal (pictured) revealed on his podcast that he voted for the first time this year and 'it feels good' ...
    Like all local companies, Benchmark Theatre had to close down in March because of the coronavirus, but co-founder and producing artistic director Haley Johnson managed nonetheless to be productive. In April, with her partner Marcus Pirozzoli, she gave birth to a son, Mason. In so many ways, this changed everything. Still, Johnson and Rachel Rogers, Benchmark co-founder and executive artistic director, were able to absorb the shock of closure, figure out how to make sure the company survives and plan for the future. Benchmark’s 2020 season will begin this fall with what the directors term “bite-size programming” that still cleaves with this year’s original theme: Hopes and Fears. Benchmark is a relatively new company that took up residence in the Lakewood venue once occupied by Rick and Patty Yaconis’s Edge Theater. Over the past two years Johnson and Rogers have created some memorable productions, from A Kid Like Jake, about...
    El Día de los Muertos is still weeks away, but during these strange times, losses are constantly with us. Every day feels like it could be Day of the Dead. And this weekend, you'll have two special opportunities to not only remember what you've lost, but celebrate the spirit of healing and resilience. The first opens today, October 9, at the History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway, where History Colorado and the Chicano Humanities and Arts Council have partnered on a community ofrenda. Anyone can visit this community altar, leave a tribute to a loved one, perhaps create a paper flower to add to the display. Educator Arlette Lucero organized the project, which features work by artists Cal Duran and Mark Martinez Luna. "Día de los Muertos is a valuable opportunity for us to come together to honor and remember our loved ones who came before us. It also exemplifies...

    Before vanishing from public view last year, Vladimir Putin’s rumored long-time lover had glittered under a spotlight for two decades, first as a talented gymnast and later as a Russian model, politician, and media mogul. But it would be as Putin’s reputed paramour for the past dozen years — and as the rumored mother to four of his children — that the spotlight on beautiful Alina Kabaeva would flare its hottest. Now 37, Kabaeva was a teenager when she first backflipped onto the world stage in a burst of sequins. ALEXEI NAVALNY'S ANTI-CORRUPTION MESSAGE CONTINUES, DESPITE POISONING, IN VIDEOS RELEASED BY HIS FOUNDATION  Her strength, limberness and skill with the ball and ribbons of rhythmic gymnastics earned her praise as “the most supple woman in Russia.” It was at the height of her athletic fame — notching a bronze medal in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and a gold medal in Athens...
    President Donald Trump's doctor says he will be able to return to 'public engagements' on Saturday, which would be just over a week after the president first announced he had tested positive for coronavirus. White House Physician Dr. Sean Conley also released Trump's vital signs for the first time since he became infected, showing a pulse, blood pressure, and blood oxygen level all within normal ranges. Trump was first diagnosed with COVID-19 last Thursday, and was moved to Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday before returning to the White House on Monday evening.  'Since returning home, his physical exam has remained stable and devoid of any indications to suggested progression of illness.,' Conley said in a memo released by the White House on Thursday night. 'Overall he's responded extremely well to treatment, without evidence on examination of adverse therapeutic effects.  'Saturday will be day 10 since Thursday's diagnosis, and based on the...

    Last month, The Masked Singer returned to Fox and premiered its 4th season. One contestant that seems to be a fan favorite is the Sun, who viewers believe is a famous female singer. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, for their debut performance, the Sun showed off their vocals and sang Lizzo’s “Cuz I Love You.” From the a cappella intro, it was clear that this wasn’t the first time they had performed on a stage. Last night, the Sun continued to blow the panelists away by singing Kesha’s powerful “Praying.” For their first clue package, the Sun said when they “sprung into existence,” they felt like the center of the universe. At the beginning, they enjoyed fame. However, that soon changed as they started to feel the pressure. The visual showed the Sun on top of the world with trees that morphed into what looked like a Mickey Mouse...
    Fortnite creator Epic Games is partnering with carmakers, starting with General Motors, to use its Unreal Engine game development platform to build in-car software in what Epic is calling its “human-machine interface” (HMI) initiative. The first car to use Unreal Engine, which is the primary software toolset with which developers make Fortnite and countless other big-budget video games, will be GMC’s upcoming Hummer EV, set to be unveiled on October 20th. The logic is simple: modern cars are primarily designed using software, and assembled cars carry scores of onboard computers and rely on touchscreens and digital interfaces to power infotainment centers and other sources of information displayed to drivers. And Unreal Engine is a great platform for building software, which Epic thinks makes it a great platform for building the software that goes into cars. “When you sit in the driver’s seat of a modern car today, the...
    COVID-19 isn’t the first hardship to affect many members of the Osage Cafe community, operations manager Lori Laurita says. Still, this year has proven to be a roller coaster that’s underscored the importance of listening to customers and adapting to their needs. Osage Café, supported by the Denver Housing Authority (DHA), serves the La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhood with fresh meals while also operating a culinary arts training and employment program for underserved Denver youth. The nonprofit restaurant's holistic approach to both food and education has inspired staff to think creatively about how best to provide its services during stay-at-home and safer-at-home measures. Laurita says that mental health check-ins with trainees and people in the neighborhood have been just as important as providing food and employment opportunities. The idea for the cafe began over a decade ago at a food bank in the Platte Valley where DHA started the Youth Culinary...
    This idea is controversial, although many scientists believe that the universe operates in a permanent cycle, but before it shrinks into a ‘Big Crunch’ following a major Big Bang. Sir Roger also said that black holes were once controversial. The first theory was first conceived by the English parson John Mitchell in 1783, who speculated that if an object became too dense, its massive force of gravity would stop even escaping light. But even Albert Einstein rejected the interest in mathematics rather than a physical reality. Nine years after Einstein’s death, until 1964, Sir Roger proposed that black holes were an inevitable consequence of general relativity. Sir Roger proved that when objects become so dense they affect the infinite mass of gravitational collapse, where all known laws of nature are stopped, which are called singular. His essay is still regarded today as the most important contribution to the theory of...
    Capcom’s Resident Evil franchise is a stalwart of the survival horror genre, and somewhat unexpectedly, the foundation for a highly successful film series. Overseen by Mortal Kombat director Paul W.S. Anderson, the Resident Evil movies ran for six installments between 2001 to 2016. Only now do we realize: This was just the beginning. The zombie-filled property is very much alive. On Tuesday, Capcom and Constantin Film, the company behind the original movies, announced that writer-director Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) would helm an official origin story adaptation set in 1998 in Raccoon City. The film will star Kaya Scodelario (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon S. Kennedy, and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as William Birkin....
    LANDOVER, Md. (WJZ) — Nothing the Ravens could have done at Washington would have erased the Monday night loss to Kansas City a week ago; that’s done and in the record book. All that mattered was to get back to winning, and the Ravens did that decisively. The defense did well against Washington’s inexperienced quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

(Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images) Linebacker Matthew Judon got the quarterback for two sacks, his first two of the season. Judon led the Ravens in sacks last season; he didn’t get any in the first three games this season, but he’s back now. Head Coach John Harbaugh said Judon was playing hard and had a great...
    Akshay Kumar has finished shooting for his next film, a period espionage thriller, Bell Bottom. The movie attracted some headlines which claimed it was the first title to begin and finish shooting during the pandemic. However, the claim doesn’t hold ground when tested against many other films. Malayalam screenwriter Vivek Ranjit (Kili Poyi) took to Twitter to remind everyone of Fahad Fasil’s C U Soon and Khalid Rahman’s Love, both of which were shot during the pandemic. The former has even released on a streamer. “How is [Bell Bottom] the first film to finish shoot during the pandemic?” the writer asked. Bell Bottom: Akshay Kumar, Vaani Kapoor Fly Back Home After Wrapping Up the Shoot of Their Espionage-Thriller (See Pic). Bell Bottom had wrapped up its shooting schedules in Glasgow and London earlier. To its credit, the movie might be the first big-budget film with an ensemble cast and a...
    Ex-Twitter CEO Dick Costolo tweeted late Wednesday that “Me-first capitalists” would be the first ones “shot in the revolution.” Jumping into a recent controversy over employee activism at tech companies — kicked off when Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong announced in a blog post this week he was banning at-work discussions about politics and societal issues — Costolo bemoaned the end of an era where “tech companies used to welcome lively debate about ideas and society.” Costolo said that the openness within Silicon Valley companies  was what “differentiated tech culture from, say, Wells Fargo culture.” Things got testy, however, when another Twitter user said that tamping down political activism within companies would “be rough for people who want an activist job on a tech person’s salary.” “Me-first capitalists who think you can separate society from business are going to be the first people lined up against the wall and shot in...
    A professor who called for all police officers to be killed via strangulation “with the intestines of the last capitalist” is now receiving death threats. "I want the entire world to burn until the last cop is strangled with the intestines of the last capitalist, who is strangled in turn with the intestines of the last politician," Midwestern State University philosophy professor Nathan Jun wrote in a September Facebook post. Jun is now reportedly facing death threats and said that an initial media report from a local Texas outlet regarding his Facebook post lacked context and "helped gin up the latest in a long line of violent, hysterical attacks against [his] person and property.” One person also shared what appears to be a message from Jun to friends that claimed his home was vandalized and that he’s received more than 300 death threats. "As of this morning,...
    Former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo recently tweeted that “me-first capitalists” who disagree with injecting political activism into their workplaces will be “the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution.” The company has not commented if the tweet by Costolo, who has an estimated net worth of $300 million, violates its policies against glorifying violence. In a recent tweet, former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo discussed a decision by Brian Armstrong, the CEO of the cryptocurrency firm Coinbase, to not promote political activism and social justice within the company. Armstrong’s comments fly in the face of ultra-progressive tech firms such as Facebook and Google. In a blog post to Medium.com, Armstrong stated that the company would not focus on things such as broader societal issues, stating: “We don’t engage here when issues are unrelated to our core mission, because we believe impact only comes with focus.” Discussing...
    Melania Trump has revealed she always knew her husband would win the US presidential election 'if and when he ran,' as she opens up about how her childhood in Slovenia and travels as a model has led her to serve as First Lady.  In a rare interview featured in the November issue of the British lifestyle magazine Tatler, the 50-year-old former model spoke about her humble beginnings, her strong belief in capitalism, and Donald Trump's presidency.  Melania recalled how her husband announced on the Larry King Live show in 1999 that he was considering running for office, but she said they had known then that the time was not right.   Opening up: Melania Trump, 50, spoke about her humble beginnings, her belief in capitalism, and President Donald Trump in an interview with Tatler  'We knew it wasn't the time.

    Seagram's liquor fortune heir Clare Bronfman, who is accused of using her family fortune to bankroll the NXIVM cult, faces sentencing today for her role in the branded sex slave case. The 41-year-old arrived at the US District Court in Brooklyn this morning wearing a mask ahead of her sentencing hearing.  She will be the first member of the notorious NXIVM group to be sentenced.  Her lawyers want a judge to give her three years' probation instead of prison time but prosecutors argue she deserves five years behind bars.  Bronfman pleaded guilty last year to charges she committed credit card fraud on behalf of NXIVM leader Keith Raniere and to harboring someone who was living in the US illegally for unpaid 'labor and services'.  Raniere, the disgraced leader of the self-improvement group in upstate New York, was convicted last year of turning women into sex slaves who were branded with his...

    Madison Summers September 30, 2020 0 Comments After the first presidential debate kicked off with chaos, some have mulled the idea of the other two debates being canceled. Asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper “after what went down this evening, do you think Joe Biden should participate in a second or third debate,” Kamala Harris, who is Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, slapped that idea down. “Joe Biden’s never going to refuse to talk to the American people,” she responded. Harris continued, “And have any opportunity that he can to speak directly to American families and speak about the issues, speak the truth, and address the facts of where we are now, but also address the hopes and dreams of the American families and where we could be and Joe’s got a plan for dealing with those hopes and aspirations as well.” When asked if she believes Americans benefitted from what was seen play out...
    Tuesday's chaotic debate between President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has some commentators wondering whether the two presidential candidates will participate at all in the next two scheduled debates. But Biden's campaign shut down speculation that they would skip out. "Joe Biden’s going to show up. He’s going to continue showing up to speak to the American people," top Biden campaign aide Kate Bedingfield told reporters in a post-campaign call. "We are committing to attending the debates." During the debate, moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News struggled to keep the president from continuously interrupting Biden and allowing for equal time. "Clearly this was the most chaotic presidential debate that I've ever seen," CNN's Wolf Blitzer said in live coverage after the debate. "It will certainly raise – raising a lot of questions about the future of the presidential debate between these two candidates. I...
    Michael Cohen has revealed Donald Trump's 'biggest fear' was always his tax returns being released to the public - and he predicts the president could go straight to prison for tax fraud after leaving the White House. The president's former personal attorney and self-described fixer, who himself was convicted for tax evasion, says the New York Times bombshell report about Trump's taxes for the past two decades is just the tip of the iceberg. He says the 'corrupt' president could face a raft more allegations should forensic accountants get hold of his returns. 'Based on what I know and what has now been reported, he may soon be the first sitting president to go from the White House straight to prison,' he told DailyMail.com. 'Trump's biggest fear is that if his tax return is released, that there's a whole slew of organizations of accountants and forensic accountants that will rip...
    Between President Trump setting low expectations for Joe Biden’s debate performance and historical precedent of incumbent presidents not performing well in the first presidential debate, Democrats are optimistic that the first encounter between the major-party candidates will be Biden’s to lose. The challenge, though, is that Trump could ignite the Democratic presidential nominee’s short temper with criticisms of his family or on matters of personal pride. What the Biden campaign doesn’t want is a debate-stage version of when Biden told a Michigan autoworker that challenged him on guns that he is “full of s---,” or when he said that an Iowa voter who questioned his mental fitness and son Hunter Biden’s connections to a Ukrainian gas company was a “damn liar” and challenged him to an IQ test and pushup contest. Trump has suggested that Biden’s good performance in the last Democratic presidential debate against Vermont Sen....
    Scientists have found a cluster of three salty liquid water lakes on Mars, each about six miles across, below the planet's south polar ice cap. An international team examined radar data from MARSIS, a scientific instrument on board the European Space Agency’s Mars Express spacecraft.  The technique uses bursts of radio waves to image buried geological structures – in a similar fashion to 'seismic prospecting', which helps predict earthquakes.  They found the briny lakes – which have potential to sustain microbial life in extreme conditions – at Ultimi Scopuli, a region near the Red Planet's south pole.  Microbial life in the lakes could include extremophiles, which can stand intense heat, highly acidic environments, extreme pressure and extreme cold.  The new discovery is the first ‘alien’ water found on the Red Planet since 2018, when the first ever lake was discovered beneath the Martian south polar ice cap.   The 2018 discovery was...
    The 2020 French Open hosted a promising first-round fixture between Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray, and it turned into a one-sided fixture where the Swiss utterly dominated the Brit in straight sets. How did Murray reflect on his disappointing loss? Among the hundreds of other players in the main draw, Murray was handed a match with Stan Wawrinka. It triggered the memories of the 2017 French Open semi-final where Wawrinka beat an in-form Murray in a grueling five-setter. Besides creating history in Roland Garros with his 2017 semi-final victory, Wawrinka also extended his dominant clay-court record against Murray. In addition to it, the tournament’s #16 seed cruised to victory on Sunday to knock Murray out of the 2020 French Open.  Andy Murray was unable to hold firm with his first serve and made just 38% in the whole game. ‘I haven’t served like that… that’s nothing to do with...
              The New York Times published a lengthy report over the weekend based, they say, on tax documents they obtained from “sources.” Breitbart News reports that The Times “found no evidence of any links to Russia,” as has been consistently claimed by multiple news outlets have claimed over the course of the Trump’s term in office. However, they add that the documents do show the extent of the entrepreneur’s Russia connections are limited to the 2001 Miss Universe pageant held in Moscow – which were “the most profitable Miss Universe during Mr. Trump’s time as co-owner, and that it generated a personal payday of $2.3 million.” Breitbart continues: Michael Cohen. Prosecutors in New York have subpoenaed the tax returns for a criminal investigation — most likely, having to do with payments via Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen (now a convicted felon), to alleged lovers (including...

    Quinnen Williams looks different to observers after shedding weight and adding muscle in the offseason. His performance so far doesn’t feel the same, either. “I can tell the difference,” the second-year Jets defensive tackle said following practice Friday. “Just experience. I had a whole season last year learning the same exact plays. I just feel comfortable in the playbook, just comfortable in the position I’m playing.” It shows. A disappointment as a rookie, the former No. 3-overall pick in the 2019 draft out of Alabama has begun to shed that unwanted label, playing at an elite level in a Week 2 loss to the 49ers after a solid debut against the Bills. In defeat last Sunday, he was a disruptive force, producing two sacks, two tackles for loss, four solo tackles and a forced fumble. It was arguably his best performance as a pro. But Williams hasn’t done much gloating...
    Last year, a telescope captured the very first image of an "unseeable" black hole, dazzling the scientific community and space enthusiasts alike with a static picture of M87*, the supermassive object at the heart of the Messier 87 galaxy. Now, more images reveal that the black hole appears to be "wobbling" — a big surprise to researchers.  Since releasing the historic photo, scientists have studied archival data sets from 2019-2013 to better understand how the black hole behaves. They found the presence of a consistent shadow in the shape of a crescent — and noticed that it has rotated significantly over the last decade.  The brightness of M87* appears to be flickering over time, likely due to it expelling and consuming nearby matter that gets caught in its intense gravitational pull, scientists said in a new study published in The Astrophysical Journal. As the ring of gas, which is heated...
    Astronauts returning to the Moon will be exposed to radiation 2.6 times higher than on board the International Space Station (ISS), a new study says.   Scientists used data from China’s 2019 Chang’E 4 lander to determine the amount of radiation humans would be exposed to on the lunar surface. An average daily radiation dose is 1,369 microsieverts per day – about 2.6 times higher than the daily dose for ISS crew, 200 times higher than on the surface of the Earth and five to 10 times higher 'than on a flight from New York to Frankfurt'.  NASA plans to build Moon bases that won't be penetrated by lethal rays when it sends humans back to the Moon in 2024, including the first woman, as part of the Artemis programme.  Scroll down for video  Scientists have used data from China’s 2019 Chang’E 4 lander mission to determine the amount...
    Sunday will be for the women — at least in Cleveland. For the first time in NFL history, there will be two female coaches on the sideline and a female official on the field when the Browns host the Washington Football team. Jennifer King is in her first season on Washington’s staff, while Callie Brownson is the chief of staff for Browns first-year coach Kevin Stefanski. Sarah Thomas became the league’s first female official in 2015, has worked in the postseason and is now making more history. A former college basketball coach, King first connected with Washington coach Ron Rivera when both were in North Carolina. She joined Rivera’s staff as an intern in 2018 with the Panthers, and when he took the job in Washington earlier this year, King came with him as an offensive assistant and full-year coaching intern — the first Black woman in league history.

    What kind of economic growth can we expect if Joe Biden wins the presidency in November and Democrats sweep Congress? And how does it compare to a hypothetical Trump victory and a Republican sweep? The boffins at Moody’s Analytics took a look at the likely impact of economic policy in both scenarios and came up decidedly bearish on Republicans: The economic outlook is weakest under the scenario in which Trump and the Republicans sweep Congress and fully adopt their economic agenda. In this scenario…it is not until the first half of 2024 that the economy returns to full employment…unemployment remains persistently higher…labor force participation rate that never fully recovers to its pre-pandemic highs…real after-tax income does not change much during the president’s term…The economy suffers in Trump’s second term, as we expect he will double down on the foreign trade and immigration policies he pursued in his first term…The significant...
    The first of three presidential debates is scheduled for this Tuesday, September 29 and will be moderated by Fox News’ Chris Wallace, who leans conservative but is by no means one of President Donald Trump’s mindless sycophants. Trump and his Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, can both expect some hardball questions from the Fox News host. Conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin laid out how there are many issues on which Trump is vulnerable, suggesting questions on everything from the U.S. Supreme Court to health care. It remains to be seen who Trump will nominate for the U.S. Supreme Court following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but it’s obvious that Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are determined to ram a far-right nominee through the U.S. Senate as quickly as possible. And Rubin’s suggested questions for the first debate include “Mr. President, have any of your Supreme...

    Several MLB teams could make a surprising run in October. The MLB season seems like it just began and now the playoffs are set to begin next week. The new format will feature 16 teams competing for the World Series and that means plenty of surprise contenders to choose from in the office pool.

    President Trump hinted on Monday that Pfizer may be pulling into the lead in the race to make a coronavirus vaccine.  'Pfizer's doing really well,' Trump said in a Fox News interview.  'Johnson & Johnson...they'll probably be a little later.'  Also on Monday the same day, the White House's vaccine czar, Dr Moncef Slaoui said that the most vulnerable Americans could be vaccinated against COVID-9 by December, with 'most of the elderly' and frontline workers getting shots in January.  Dr Slaoui told Squawk on the Street that he and Operation Warp Speed could have vaccines to others by April.  That does not quite fit with the timeline laid out by the CDC last week, which suggested that, if a vaccine was approved, states should be ready to distribute it, for free, to Americans by January.  President Trump said on Monday that Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine is 'looking really good,' hinting...

    I loved my Barry's Bootcamp workout and wasn't distracted by coronavirus. Rachel Hosie/Insider Fitness studios in London, UK, are currently open, including Barry's Bootcamp. I visited at the weekend and did a class in one of its signature underground "red rooms," and was amazed by how comfortable I felt.

    Barack Obama's long-awaited and much-anticipated memoir will be published on November 17 - two weeks after this year's presidential election, it was announced Thursday. His reflections on his life and his presidency will come in two parts.

    Federal health officials announced a plan on Wednesday to distribute the coronavirus vaccine — if/when one is developed and approved for deployment — free of charge to every American who wants one, The Associated Press reported. A “playbook” released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) outlines how a campaign of mass vaccination will be carried out gradually, beginning in January 2021 or even perhaps before the end of this year, pending the eventual approval of one or more of the candidates currently being tested. As the guidelines make clear, the process will be complicated and will involve the cooperation of the manufacturer, the U.S. military, state and local health officials, multiple federal agencies, and the country’s information technology apparatus. The Deployment Will Be A ‘Marathon, Not A Sprint’ Rolling out the vaccine will be a process that will start small. At first, there may be a limited...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The countdown to the home opener for the Pittsburgh Steelers is on and it will be a home opener like never before.

    Between ten and 15 per cent of cats tested for coronavirus in Wuhan — ground-zero for the Covid-19 pandemic — had caught the disease, according to a new study.  The findings comes as researchers try and work out what risk the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes Covid-19 as well as the hyperinflammatory condition MIS-C in children, poses to pets.  Blood samples taken from more than 100 felines between January and March in the Chinese city reveal the pets likely caught the virus from humans.  Researchers advise that Covid-19 patients should quarantine themselves away from their companion animals, such as cats and dogs, to prevent spreading the disease.   None of the cats that were infected with SARS-CoV-2 in this study showed symptoms, but it is believed the virus can be deadly to pets.  According to public records in the US, there are only 17 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in pet cats.

    John Lennon was the chippy, clever, quick-witted Beatle, a snarl of contradictions: both vicious brute and snivelling baby. He was hardly halfway through his natural life when it was extinguished.  More than any other artist, he has come to be regarded as the symbol and the conscience of his age. But who, or what, was the real John Lennon – and when did the ‘real’ John Lennon die? Was his happy-go-lucky boyhood demeanour extinguished by the death of his mother?  Yoko was the alpha female John needed, the partner he felt he deserved. She could hold her own in sophisticated company where John tended to feel inhibited. He would look to Yoko for guidance and approval in most things, as a child looks to his mother. Tellingly, he called Yoko ‘Mother Having fashioned himself as a leather-clad rocker, what made him relinquish that edition of himself so readily, allowing the gritty...
    Saturday's rescheduled Kentucky Derby is unique for a number of reasons — namely, it's being run in September without any spectators amid a global pandemic — but perhaps the most intriguing oddity can be found in the 17-horse field: the race's biggest betting favorite since 1992. Churchill Downs oddsmaker Mike Battaglia has pegged Belmont Stakes champion Tiz the Law's odds at 3 to 5, making the stallion the Kentucky Derby's biggest favorite since Arazi entered the race at 4 to 5, only to finish in eighth. But unlike 1992, and every other year for that matter, the 146th Kentucky Derby is not the first leg of the 2020 Triple Crown. Instead, after being postponed from May for the first time since 1945, the Kentucky Derby is now the second frame of the horse racing's biggest prize, meaning the field is vastly more familiar to oddsmakers than ever before.

    Steve Nash at a basketball clinic in 2015. Desmond Boylan/AP Images The Brooklyn Nets on Thursday hired Hall of Fame point guard Steve Nash to be their head coach. Nash has no coaching experience, but formed a bond with Kevin Durant as a consultant for the Golden State Warriors and is believed to have the experience necessary to mentor Kyrie Irving. Nash and the Nets will face almost immediate pressure to win right away, as Irving and Durant are already in Year 2 of four-year deals. If Nash proves to be a poor head coach, the Nets will have to adjust quickly with Durant and Irving in their 30s and approaching free agency. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Ms. Marvel. These are the characters that will be immediately playable once Marvel’s Avengers game goes on sale later this week. But who will be added post-launch? We only know that Clint Barton’s Hawkeye is headed to the game, alongside Spider-Man — though only for PlayStation owners — at a later date. Well, developer Crystal Dynamics has now revealed that two Hawkeyes are actually on the way. The first will be Kate Bishop, a member of the Young Avengers, through a story event called Taking Aim in late October. She’ll have “distinct Heroic Skills and takedowns,” Square Enix promised in a press release, that feel different from the other characters. If you’re a Barton fan, though, fear not. The Japanese publisher has described Taking Aim as the “first half” of a complete Hawkeye story arc that will introduce Clint in...
    SACRAMENTO —  California is poised to become the first state to develop its own line of generic drugs, targeting soaring drug prices and stepping into a fiercely competitive drug market dominated by deep-pocketed pharmaceutical companies. The Democratic-controlled Legislature overwhelmingly approved a measure Monday that would direct the state’s top health agency to partner with one or more drug companies by January to make or distribute a broad range of generic or biosimilar drugs — including the diabetes medicine insulin — that are cheaper than brand-name products. The bill, SB-852, also opens the door for California to make its own generic drugs in the future. Gov. Gavin Newsom will have until Sept. 30 to sign or veto the measure. “People need these drugs, but prices are through the roof, so we’re saying there’s a role for the state to bring prices down,” said the bill’s author, state Sen. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento)....

    There’s a certain swagger that comes with the first day of senior year at high school — but the coronavirus pandemic means those starting classes Monday are in for an experience unlike any had by generations of students before them. “In the past I’ve always seen the people in grades above me do all their, like, ‘last first day pictures,’ and like, you know, new outfits for the first day of school,” said Jake New, a senior at Bowie High School. “For us it’s just, schools in our living room, you know? It’ll definitely be weird.” Milestones like Monday will be the first of many moments seniors around the D.C. region will be missing this year.
