    Getty Colby Covington & Israel Adesanya Former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington wouldn’t shy away from moving up the middleweight, and he welcomes a fight with 185-pound king Israel Adesanya. Covington fought for undisputed 170-pound gold earlier this month at UFC 268 but was unable to capture it, losing a unanimous decision to welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. “Chaos” has a professional MMA record of 16-3, with two of his losses coming at the hands of Usman. Although he’s ranked No. 1 in the division, Covington seemingly has a steep hill to climb to get back to a title shot as long as “The Nigerian Nightmare” is on top. So, one option Covington could toy with is a move to middleweight. Speaking with MMANews.com’s James Lynch, Covington was asked about the division north of 170 pounds. According to Chaos, he used to train with 185 pounders, so he knows what he’s getting into, and believes he has certain advantages over the bigger men. “Yeah, it’s an option,” Covington said via the outlet. “I used to train with middleweights...
    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Tuesday that the Fed’s target for inflation had been reached and that the Fed would consider accelerating the wind-down of its easy-money policies in light of persistently high inflation. The announcement marks a major pivot for Powell into an inflation-fighting mode. Until Tuesday’s testimony before the Senate Banking Committee, the Fed chair had emphasized the need for the Fed to proceed slowly and cautiously to avoid hurting the recovery by tightening too early. “The economy is very strong and inflationary pressures are high,” Powell said. “It is therefore appropriate, in my view, to consider wrapping up the taper of our asset purchases … perhaps a few months sooner.” The Fed  began to shrink its monthly bond purchases this month, a process known in the financial sector as “tapering.” At the pace announced for November and December, the Fed would stop adding to its bond portfolio in June—although it would continue to make new purchases to replace bonds as they matured. At Tuesday’s hearing, Powell signaled that Fed officials would discuss a speedier wind-down of...
    Brady Quinn, a former Notre Dame star quarterback, was among the alumni who reacted to the report Brian Kelly was going to leave the Fighting Irish to take the LSU job. Quinn, a Heisman Trophy finalist and current FOX college football analyst, appeared on CBS Sports HQ on Monday and tried to put together the reason why Kelly would bolt to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — On Monday night, the Empire State Building was illuminated in the colors of the French flag as a nod to the history being made in that country on Tuesday.

    The uncle of an 11-year-old girl plowed down by an SUV during the Wisconsin Christmas parade massacre is sharing horrific details of the aftermath and says he hopes the career criminal charged in the ambush is jailed for life. U.S. Army veteran Ryan Kohnke – whose niece Jessalyn Torres remains on a ventilator a week after the attack – said he wants Darrell Brooks Jr. properly punished for allegedly killing six people and wounding 62 others. ‘I hope he spends the rest of his jail in isolation,’ Kohnke told Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine. ‘I don’t think he’ll ever see general population because they’re afraid of what might happen to him.’ Kohnke said he was standing at the sidelines of the November 21 parade in Waukesha and watched helplessly as a red SUV broke through a safety barricade and barreled into the crowd.  Jessalyn, who was participating in the parade with the Waukesha Xtreme Dance group, had just passed through and Kohnke’s thoughts soon turned to his family’s safety as a man in the SUV began mowing down the...
    CAIRO (AP) — Sudan’s armed forces said on Sunday that six of its forces were killed in fighting in the country’s border region with Ethiopia. It came a day after the military claimed that Ethiopian military and militia forces attacked the border area of al-Fashaqa, a disputed agricultural area that straddles the two countries. The fighting is the latest turbulence for Sudan, after generals deposed the country’s transitional civilian government in late October and arrested more than a hundred officials. Mass protests followed the coup, and the generals eventually reinstated Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok under military oversight amid international pressure. However many of the country’s pro-democratic forces continue to call for the military to release its grip on power. Sudan had been struggling with its transition to a democratic government since the military overthrow of former autocrat Omar al-Bashir in 2019, following a mass uprising against three decades of his rule. The decades-old dispute with Ethiopia centers on large swaths of farming land Sudan says are within its borders, according an agreement that demarcated the line between the two nations...
    As a seventh grader, Emma Lembke was one of the last in her friend group in Birmingham, Alabama, to get on social media. When she did, she says she soon found herself addicted, spending five hours a day on the apps, mostly Instagram. “At an important developmental period in my life as a young female, as a young kid, in middle school, [I got] wound up in this world of likes, comments, very deeply quantifiable measures of my value, addictive algorithms, and the endless scroll,” she says. When Lembke reached what she calls a “breaking point” in ninth grade, she began looking into the effects of social media. She found research articles, statistics, and a now widely shared TEDx Talk that all suggested to her that the anxiety, body image issues, and isolation she thought she was alone in feeling were in fact linked to social media use. During the pandemic, Lembke, who is now 19 and a freshman at Washington University, started an organization called Log Off, which provides resources for reducing screen time, advice for better digital well-being,...
    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen’s Houthi rebels launched airstrikes early Saturday morning targeting the country’s capital, Sanaa. Saudi state-run television reported the strikes, citing the Saudi-led coalition as urging civilians to stay away from the sites, without identifying them. The strikes come amid heavy fighting around the city of Marib and after coalition forces withdrew from areas around the key port city of Hodeida. The Iranian-backed Houthis have held Yemen’s capital since September 2014. Though the intervention of the Saudi-led coalition halted their march south in 2015, the war has slogged on for years and created the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

    If one is afforded the protection of a concessions counter, one should probably stay there in a violent situation. That would probably be the biggest takeaway from a brawl at AT&T Stadium in Dallas on Sunday, where a female concessions worker jumped the counter to start brawling, slipped on some food, and promptly got worked by at least two female fans.

    Getty Khamzat Chimaev & Colby Covington Two-time UFC welterweight title challenger Colby “Chaos” Covington is ready to take on, and derail, a hype train. Covington spoke with MMA Fighting on Wednesday, November 25, 2021, about his thoughts on No. 10-ranked UFC welterweight Khamzat Chimaev, calling him a “joke” and saying he’d send “Borz” to the hospital if they fought.

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was far from a football field at this time last year, when shoulder pads and playbooks gave way to scrubs and medical charts. The big New York Jets offensive lineman with a doctorate in medicine was on the front lines helping fight against a pandemic that gripped the world — and putting his playing career on hold. “I was part of a movement of thousands of people that went back and helped, whether it was retired nurses or doctors, ” Duvernay-Tardif said. “I think it gave me a different perspective on the medical system. Like, everything is so hierarchical normally, but in a time of crisis, feeling like everybody coming together and working as a team, it was pretty amazing.” The 30-year-old Duvernay-Tardif, a native of Montreal, graduated from the McGill University Faculty of Medicine in May 2018, earning his doctorate and a master’s in surgery while balancing his blossoming football career. He was the first NFL player to opt out of last season because of the coronavirus pandemic, a decision that...

    TYSON FURY has jokingly challenged WBO female middleweight champion Savannah Marshall to a cross-gender showdown after declaring he has ‘no interest’ in facing Joe Joyce.

The 33-year-old was expected to face Dillian Whyte in February or March only for red-tape to scupper his mandatory challenger’s prospects of a shot at the big time. That has led to fellow Brit Joe Joyce declaring that he is free, ready and waiting to take on Fury instead. However, when asked about that potential showdown by IFL TV, Fury said that there are only two men he wants to get in the ring. And, tongue-in-cheekily, one woman - the 30-year-old Marshall.

    By JOSH BOAK and COLLEEN LONG WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Tuesday ordered 50 million barrels of oil released from America’s strategic reserve to help bring down energy costs, in coordination with other major energy consuming nations, including China, India and the United Kingdom. The move is aimed at global energy markets, but also at U.S. voters who are coping with higher inflation and rising prices ahead of Thanksgiving and winter holiday travel. Gasoline prices are at about $3.40 a gallon, more than 50% higher than a year ago, according to the American Automobile Association. The government will begin to move barrels into the market in mid to late December. But the action is unlikely to immediately bring down gas prices significantly as families begin traveling for the holidays. Gasoline usually responds at a lag to changes in oil prices, and administration officials suggested this is one of several steps toward ultimately bringing down costs. There was no major impact on the price for a benchmark barrel of U.S. crude right after the announcement. Prices have been up...
    CAIRO (AP) — A Saudi-led coalition airstrike Tuesday gutted a plastics factory in Yemen’s rebel-held capital of Sanaa, the rebels said, the latest attack amid an escalation in fighting in recent weeks. The dawn strike hit a factory owned by a Syrian national and situated near a hospital in the south of the city, according to a statement from the Iran-backed Houthi rebels. No casualties were immediately reported. There was no immediate comment from the coalition. Yemen’s war began with the 2014 takeover of Sanaa by the Houthis, who control much of the country’s north. The Saudi-led coalition entered the war the following year determined to restore the internationally recognized government and oust the rebels. In several areas across the country in recent weeks, long-established front lines have moved or seen increased fighting, worrying aid agencies and international observers. Fighting has raged along the country’s western coastline in and around the strategic port city of Hodeida. On Friday, government-allied militias made significant advances in the coastal city of Mocha, south of Hodeida. Dozens were killed in the...
    Criminologists and, increasingly, local court systems love the idea of "swift, certain and fair" punishments for drug use (including alcohol) by people with criminal justice system involvement. They say that releasing people with strict anti-drug use conditions will curb mass incarceration, cut costs and assist in rehabilitation — a win for everyone. Not only is this misleading, but the programs they are creating might be unconstitutional. That is what the ACLU contends of the 24/7 Sobriety Program in Wyoming, in a demand letter recently sent to Governor Mark Gordon, Attorney General Bridget Hill, the Teton County Sheriff's Office and others. Its effectiveness as a public safety program is also in doubt. The program, which was first created as a result of a 2014 law, creates stringent pretrial release conditions for people awaiting alcohol-related charges. Anyone caught drinking will be put back in jail. State lawmakers were inspired by a program created by former South Dakota Attorney General Larry Long in his state. A training from the South Dakota Attorney General's Office illustrates what the program looks like, as well...

              moreby J.D. Davidson   Ohio has joined a federal lawsuit challenging the Biden administration’s new federal immigration policy, which Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said stops nearly all deportations and handcuffs U.S. immigration officers. Yost and attorneys general in Arizona and Montana want to stop the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Guidelines for the Enforcement of Civil Immigration Law, which is scheduled to take effect Nov. 29. The lawsuit called the guidelines irrational and said they likely will increase a border crisis. “Illegal drugs and criminals are pouring into our neighborhoods, and now the federal government wants law enforcement to sit by and do nothing,” Yost said. “This is reckless and it violates the law.” More than 1.7 migrants were detained along the southwest U.S. border in fiscal year 2021, the highest total ever recorded, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Border Patrol apprehended more than 164,000 migrants the southwest border last month, the most for October in at least 21 years. The Ohio House has called on the Biden administration to secure the nation’s southern border, saying in a...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden has offered multiple responses to spiking inflation: investigating gas prices, smoothing supply chains, touting benefit programs. None offers Americans much immediate relief.At the same time, Biden has resisted one step that would: Lifting tariffs on Chinese imports would save the average household hundreds of dollars a year. Just as tempting, it would reverse the failed trade war policy of his discredited predecessor, Donald Trump.But strategic and political considerations outweigh the allure. Whatever the benefit to rattled consumers, the implications at home and abroad for America's diciest international relationship raise the stakes higher than that."The reason to do this or not to do this should not be inflation," said Richard Haass, a top State Department aide under President George W. Bush who now heads the Council on Foreign Relations. "The impact on US-China relations, and the domestic politics of US-China relations, would be larger than any impact on inflation."

    It’s like something out of middle school. Rep. Paul Gosar posts video of an asinine anime that depicts him violently murdering Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Facing censure in the House, he is defended by Rep. Lauren Boebert, who in the process slags Rep. Ilhan Omar as a member of something she calls the “jihad squad.” Omar fires back, hitting Boebert for sleeping “with a pervert.” Meantime, Sen. Ted Cruz, fresh from dubbing Big Bird a tool of “government propaganda” for getting vaccinated against COVID-19, goes after Rep. Liz Cheney, saying she has “Trump derangement syndrome” for her disparagement of the 45th president. Cheney, playing on Cruz’s canine loyalty to someone who famously insulted his wife’s looks, shoots back that “a real man” would be defending his spouse. Again, middle school.

You are forgiven if you find it difficult to tell the difference. One is strongly tempted to extend a pass to Cheney and...

    (CNN)Dontae Sharpe, a Charlotte, North Carolina, resident, breathed a heavy sigh of relief Friday upon receiving a pardon for a murder he didn't commit -- after spending 24 years in prison.Sharpe, 46, who's Black, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the 1994 murder of a White man in North Carolina. After inconsistencies in a teenage witness's testimony, no physical evidence tying Sharpe to the crime and a pathologist's testimony added as new evidence, Sharpe was exonerated in 2019."I'm free now, and the burden of carrying around that felony reputation of being a killer or murder, it was gone," Sharpe told CNN on Monday. "My family name has been cleared. Man, you know, it feels good."Sharpe is just one of more than 2,890 men and women who have been wrongfully convicted and exonerated in the United States, according to the National Registry of Exonerations. Sharpe and others are striving to fix the broken legal system that put him, and so many other innocent people, behind bars.More than 2,800 have been wrongly convicted in the US.

    In Texas, far-right Republicans have been declaring war on a variety of books on topics such as racism and LGBTQ issues. But Washington Post opinion writer Karen Attiah, this week in her column, describes some ways in which Texas librarians have been fighting back. "In recent weeks," Attiah explains, "the bedrock democratic freedom to read has come under attack from Republicans in Texas. Last month, State Rep. Matt Krause (R) cobbled together a list of some 850 books centering on LGBTQ issues, race and sexuality and directed schools to report which titles appear in their collections and how much money was spent on them. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott doubled down, sending a letter to the Texas Association of School Boards demanding that the group root out 'pornographic' material from school libraries." Attiah continues, "Abbott then went a step further, demanding that the Texas Education Agency investigate 'the availability of pornography' in public schools and report any instances of such material being provided to a minor 'for prosecution to the fullest extent of the law.'" The "angry librarians" in Texas,...

    An animated series made by video game company Riot Games has become the highest rated Netflix show of all time - knocking Squid Game off the top spot.  Arcane, based on the video game League of Legends, has a 98/100 score on IMDB - the highest for any Netflix original - and is also the most watched show of all-time on the streaming service within three days of its release  While many British viewers won't be aware of it, the show, which is about two orphaned sisters fighting civil unrest in the fictional cities of Piltover and Zaun, debuted at number one on the Netflix charts in 37 countries.

    Notre Dame football is alive for a return trip to the College Football Playoff but needs some help over the next three weeks to make back-to-back appearances. Notre Dame football has a shot to return to the College Football Playoff for the third time overall and for the second straight year. But Brian Kelly’s team needs a few breaks to fall their way over the next three weeks to get one of the four spots. Last year had a lot of debate about whether Notre Dame was worthy of a playoff spot with many believing No. 5 Texas A&M was a better team. Notre Dame lost to Alabama in the semifinal game, but their spot was earned by virtue of their win over Clemson in the regular season. Notre Dame doesn’t have the same level of a quality win this year but the improved play of Wisconsin over the last six weeks has helped their strength of record. Wisconsin is No. 15 in the latest CFP rankings with Notre Dame sitting at No. 6, two spots out of the playoff.How...
    DILLIAN WHYTE has seen his well-earned world title shot hit a stall after the WBC opted against ordering him to fight Tyson Fury. The British contender launched a legal case to accelerate talks for the WBC to mandate him against champion Fury. 6WBC heavyweight champion Tyson FuryCredit: Reuters But at the governing bodies' annual convention in Mexico, they revealed the legal proceedings have to be resolved before Whyte gets his shot. The 33-year-old still remains a frontrunner to face Fury, with the WBC just needing to officially order the fight. But, if disaster strikes, here SunSport runs down five different options for the Gypsy King. Oleksandr Usyk Fury's US promoter Bob Arum has done his best to urge Anthony Joshua against rematching Usyk. It means they could instead unify all the belts against the Ukrainian, 34, and promise Joshua, 32, the winner of that fight. Arum even went as far to say that would be Fury's preference, over a domestic clash with Whyte. But it appears unlikely, with Joshua all-but confirmed for...
    TYRON WOODLEY has raged at Jake Paul not being 'a man of his word’ after the YouTuber snubbed a rematch to face Tommy Fury instead. Woodley was beaten by Paul over eight rounds in August, but beforehand the two made a pre-fight wager. 3Jake Paul beat ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley in AugustCredit: Getty Images - Getty 3Tommy Fury fights Logan Paul on December 18Credit: Getty Images - Getty They bet the loser would have to get the winner's name tattooed on them. But in the ring afterwards, Paul agreed to rematch Woodley, so long as the bet was honoured. It took Woodley a whole month to get 'I love Jake Paul' inked on his finger, which ultimately proved too little too late. He has since hit out at the social media star as he posted a link to their face-to-face sit down which was recorded days before their fight. Woodley, 39, tweeted: "Watched this for the 1st time! Every single word here happened. "He got gassed & ran. He didnt want to run...
    TYSON FURY prefers an undisputed title decider with Oleksandr Usyk but 'may end up fighting' Dillian Whyte, his promoter Bob Arum said. Fury, 33, is considering his options having knocked out Deontay Wilder, 36, in October to close out their epic trilogy series in style. 3Tyson Fury pictured with promoter Bob ArumCredit: Getty Images - Getty 3Unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr UsykCredit: Getty Just two weeks beforehand, Usyk, 34, dethroned Anthony Joshua, 32, after a 12 round masterclass at Tottenham's stadium. AJ has since invoked his right to an immediate rematch, meaning Fury's hopes of a unification took a big hit. And Arum revealed challenging for Usyk's WBA, IBF and WBO belts is top of his priority list. He told Sky Sports: "The alternative is that if Joshua decides not to exercise his rematch against Usyk and decides to step aside, the fight we would like to make is between Usyk and Fury. "That is a fight to unify the titles once and for all. Then Joshua can fight the winner of the undisputed fight....
    MOSCOW (AP) — Seven Azerbaijani service members were killed and 10 more were wounded in clashes with Armenia on the border between the two ex-Soviet nations, Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry said Wednesday. Armenian officials reported one casualty and said 13 of their troops were captured during Tuesday’s hostilities, while 24 more have gone missing. The clashes appear to be the worst outbreak of hostilities between the two countries since a six-week war last year over the separatist region of Nagorno-Karabakh that killed some 6,600 people. The Armenian Defense Ministry accused Azerbaijan’s military of opening fire on Armenian positions. The Azerbaijani government, meanwhile, accused Armenia of a “large-scale provocation” on the border. The fighting ceased on Tuesday evening after Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu spoke on the phone with his Armenian and Azerbaijani counterparts and urged them to stop. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan also spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the situation at the border. Armenia and Azerbaijan have been locked in a decades-old dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh, a region that lies within Azerbaijan but was under...

    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...
    (CNN) – Dar-Lon Chang once held out hope that the fossil fuel industry would pivot to clean energy. As a former engineer at an oil company in Houston, Chang said he conducted research on natural gas — then considered a “bridge fuel” to transition to renewables — and found cleaner ways to extract and use fossil fuels. Chang worked there for more than 15 years but said not only was his research on cleaner extraction not used, his concerns about the climate crisis were dismissed. “So all these things got me thinking of leaving,” Chang told CNN. “But more than that, I wanted to leave Houston because my daughter was born just a couple months before Hurricane Ike in 2008.” Living in Texas, Chang and his family experienced their share of climate disasters. Years after Hurricane Ike leveled Southeast Texas, Hurricane Harvey in 2017 flooded the area with more than 19 trillion gallons of water — something scientists said was three times more likely to occur because of climate change. In 2015, Chang and his wife started searching for a...
    PORTSMOUTH — Turnovers, no doubt, were Wheelersburg’s turnabout — and fair play — for Saturday night against Ironton. As a result, it’s the now 10-3 Pirates pressing on to the Division V Region 19 football championship bout —and the back-to-back state runner-up and Region 19 top-seeded Fighting Tigers (11-2) aren’t returning to Northeastern Ohio in early December. In the season opener between the U.S. Route 52 archrivals, and what seems like so long ago in August, the Fighting Tigers turned the Pirates over four second-quarter times —and capitalized by turning those turnovers into four second-quarter touchdowns. The end result was a 40-6 lopsided score in favor of Ironton —as the Fighting Tigers put the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s running-clock on the Pirates for the game’s final three minutes and 11 seconds. Well, talk about turning your tables —more like dramatically flipping them hard on their ends. That’s because the Pirates, prevailing 17-14 inside Portsmouth’s Trojan Coliseum thanks to pitching a shutout of Ironton over the final three-and-a-half quarters, forced five —yes count ‘em five —Fighting Tigers turnovers, and two...
    BRITAIN is facing a big, fat problem. We are the heaviest nation in western Europe, with close to two thirds of us ­currently overweight. 4Childhood obesity rocketed by a whopping 45 per cent in lockdownCredit: Shutterstock 4I’ve been fighting with my body weight for the past 30 years — it’s a constant battle every dayCredit: Rex Now we learn that childhood obesity rocketed by a whopping 45 per cent in lockdown. It’s hardly surprising the NHS wants to act — and yesterday it unveiled radical plans to tackle the issue across England. Parents of obese children will be urged to attend sessions with dietitians, psychologists and specialist nurses. In some cases, parents will be given their own food plans and told to diet alongside their children. It might sound like a typical “nanny state” response but I wholeheartedly believe the NHS has to do something. Obesity in childhood has been linked to multiple health problems in later life.

    Getty Kevin Durant, Brooklyn Nets Heading into a monster NBA showdown with his old team, the Warriors, on Tuesday night, Nets star Kevin Durant raised some concerns about whether he is 100% healthy following the Brooklyn Nets’ road win over Oklahoma City this weekend. Durant originally injured the shoulder when the Nets were in Chicago on November 8, the only loss the team suffered on its now-complete six-game road trip, and he has played four games since. When the Nets played the Magic in Orlando on November 10, Durant spent much of the fourth quarter in a blowout win on the bench with his shoulder heavily wrapped. “It’s solid. A little sore here and there, but it hasn’t been getting in the way too much,” Durant said in his postgame media conference Sunday. “Just keep getting treatment and take it a day at a time.” Coach Steve Nash acknowledged the shoulder could be an issue—but that it hasn’t been so far. “Little tweak but uh,” Nash said before looking at the stat sheet and smiling, “the ball still...
