    CNN faces a fresh scandal days after firing Chris Cuomo after Empire star Jussie Smollett claimed host Don Lemon had texted him details of a police investigation into a hate crime Smollett now stands accused of faking.    Don Lemon allegedly texted the former TV star shortly after he claims he was attacked in Chicago in February 2019, to say that Chicago's Police Department wasn't taking his allegations seriously.  Smollett made the claim while giving evidence on Monday.  Lemon and CNN have yet to comment on the allegation.  In testimony that was presented and then stricken from the record, Smollett said that he started to understand his story wasn't believed when CNN anchor Don Lemon (pictured right) texted him to say that the Chicago police didn't believe him Lemon's alleged meddling in the aftermath of Smollett's hate crime, which is now under investigating due to incongruences in his testimony, comes just days after the media giant fired Chris Cuomo over his involvement in defending his disgraced brother from sexual assault allegations.   Testifying in court on Monday, Smollet, 39, claimed he had...
    (CNN) — US adults — especially women — have seen a rise in blood pressure during the coronavirus pandemic, a new study suggests. The study, published Monday in the journal Circulation, included data on 464,585 employees and their spouses or partners from several different companies who participated in employer-sponsored wellness programs by Quest Diagnostics each year. READ MORE: Maryland Lawmakers Convening For Redistricting Session, Override Hogan's Veto Of Parole BillAs part of the programs, workers and their partners from all 50 states and the District of Columbia had their blood pressure measured for three years in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Dr. Luke Laffin, co-director of the Center for Blood Pressure Disorders at Cleveland Clinic, and his colleagues at Cleveland Clinic and Quest Diagnostics examined those blood pressure readings. The researchers found that the blood pressure readings appeared to be significantly higher during the pandemic in April through December of 2020 compared with in 2019, with increases ranging on average from 1.1 to 2.5 millimeters of mercury or mmHg for systolic blood pressure and 0.14 to 0.53 mmHg for diastolic blood...
    EVEN VAR couldn't stop Demarai Gray unleash an incredible stoppage time winner for Everton against Arsenal at Goodison. Richarlison had TWICE seen efforts ruled out for marginal offsides, before finally cancelling out Martin Odegaard's opener. 10Demarai Gray unleashes an unstoppable late winnerCredit: Reuters 10Richarlison celebrates finally being awarded a goalCredit: AFP Ben Godfrey could have seen red in the first half, when he stepped on Takehiro Tomiyasu's face. The action was deemed to not be deliberate, however, and he was allowed to play on. Everton thought they'd taken the lead in the 43rd minute, when Richarlison brilliantly headed home a set-piece. But the lead was cruelly taken away from them after a VAR check, with the Brazilian adjudged to be marginally offside. They were then handed a kick in the teeth of their own in stoppage time, when Martin Odegaard swept home an inviting Kieran Tierney cross. Everton then thought they'd equalised early in the second half, when Richarlison brilliantly slotted past Aaron Ramsdale. But the Toffees faithful were again frustrated, when the effort was ruled out for a fractional...
    In the wake of one of the most stressful periods of modern U.S. history, thousands of Americans suffered substantial increases to their blood pressure last year. Researchers from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio gathered blood pressure data from 464,585 employees and family members of Quest Diagnostics from the years 2018, 2019 and 2020. They found that changes in both systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) blood pressure increased by much more in 2020 than they did on average in 2019. Average change is SBP among participants increased by 2.5 millimeters of mercury (mm HG) - the standard measurement of blood pressure - compared to an increase of around 1.1 mm HG the year before. For DBP, there was an increase of 0.53 mm HG found, compared to an increase of only 0.14 mm HG the year before. Researchers warn the pandemic may have exacerbated America's already problematic levels of hypertension. Researchers found that both SBP (left) and (DBP) increased than usual last year among study participants. Levels of SBP jumped by 2.5 mm HG, compared to 1.1 the year before, while DBP increased...

    Following yet another round of failed nuclear talks between the U.S. and Iran in Vienna this past week, Iranian advocacy group Iranian Americans for Liberty (IAL) released a joint statement with the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) blasting attempts at “appeasement” and calling to “end the charade of reviving the Obama nuclear deal.”  In the exclusive statement made to Breitbart News on Monday, IAL Executive Director Bryan Leib and ZOA President Morton Klein called on President Biden to up the pressure on the theocratic regime in light of the most recent round of failed nuclear talks.  After noting the “disappointment and concern” expressed by senior diplomats from various countries due to the Islamic Republic’s “proposed alterations to a text that had been agreed on in previous rounds” and the subsequent collapse of talks, the joint statement accused the Iranian regime of deceiving fellow nations. “We are not shocked in the least that the Islamic Republic’s representatives have backtracked on the previously agreed points,” it reads. “This deception is part of their playbook and we expected this would be the end...

    DETROIT (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings are perfectly aware of what they wasted on Sunday afternoon. Needing a win to maintain a solid chance at an NFC playoff spot, they had things under control. With 1:50 to play and a 27-23 lead, all they had to do was stop the winless Detroit Lions from driving 75 yards with no timeouts. They couldn’t do it. Jared Goff hit Amon-Ra St. Brown for an 11-yard touchdown as time expired, giving the Lions an inexplicable 29-27 victory. “I know there’s supposed to be a 24-hour rule about thinking about games, but this one is going to bother me for years,” Vikings safety Harrison Smith said. “We have a short week with another game on Thursday, so we have to move ahead, but this hurts.” The strategy for beating Goff this season has been fairly simple: Bring pressure and force him into small gains or big mistakes. Minnesota got three sacks and forced Goff into a pair of turnovers, but the Vikings changed up on the last drive. Instead of trying to keep serious...
    A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Monday: ENGLAND After a thrashing by his former club in the Merseyside derby, Everton manager Rafa Benitez is under increasing pressure heading into a home match against Arsenal that wraps up the 15th round of games in the Premier League. Everton has collected just two points from a possible 24 over its last eight games and has plunged to 16th place, five points above the relegation zone. Arsenal is also coming off a loss, at Manchester United. A win will move Arsenal to fifth. SPAIN Midtable Athletic Bilbao tries to end a six-game winless streak in the Spanish league when it visits second-to-last Getafe. Athletic has lost four of its last six matches, including 1-0 at league leader Real Madrid in the previous round. Getafe has struggled this season but lost only once in its last five league matches. Getafe has two wins in its previous four league games. ITALY Relegation-threatened Cagliari has improved recently and ended a run of four straight losses with three successive draws. But it has still...

Baby Spice Emma Bunton, Scary Spice Mel B and Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell were spotted arriving at the Mandeville Hotel in London’s Marylebone for a meeting last month, with Mel C calling in by Zoom from the US. 8The Spice Girls are piling pressure on Victoria Beckham to join them on their 2023 world tourCredit: Rex 8Geri Halliwell and the others were spotted arriving at the Mandeville Hotel in London’s Marylebone for a meeting last monthCredit: Simon Jones Now Sporty Spice has revealed the women aren’t giving up hope of roping Posh in.   She said: “How can you be too busy to do a Spice Girls reunion? “It is an interesting topic of conversation.

    Fish-shaped 'microrobots' could be used to deliver chemotherapy drugs directly into tumours, sparing cancer patients from some of the worst side effects of the treatment.  The microscopic robots, which are one-hundredth of a millimetre in size, have been made my Chinese scientists using a special 3D printing technique, from a gel that changes shape when exposed to different pH levels. They then bathed the 'fish' in an iron oxide solution, which makes them magnetic, before loading its 'mouth' with chemo medication.  It could be injected into a blood vessel then guided my magnets to the location of a tumour. Cancer cells cause the pH levels in the fluids surrounding them to become more acidic and, reacting to this, the robot changes shape and opens it's 'mouth' discharging chemotherapy drugs contained inside.

    THE NHS has apologised after a shocked paramedic revealed 22 ambulances were stuck outside a hospital for six hours. The student paramedic shared footage of the ambulances backed up outside Torbay Hospital in Devon - and claimed the queue didn't move for six hours. 1The student paramedic shared footage of the ambulances stacked up outside Torbay HospitalCredit: BPM Media According to Devon Live, the fed-up medic said: "Currently at the back of a 22 ambulance queue. No movement in 6 hours. Staff are broken, the hospital is full. This is not sustainable. "Patients are being affected and so are staff. The NHS in south Devon just broke. There was time to fix this, I don’t think so anymore." A member of the public said he had counted up to 26 ambulances in the queue. In a statement, the hospital said its emergency department has been under "sustained pressure" for several months now and apologised to anyone waiting for treatment. The hospital staff are facing huge pressures with reports of people waiting for up to 13 hours in A&E. Staff are also reeling...
    Several renowned tennis players, including women’s tennis legend Martina Navratilova, sternly criticized the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) men’s tennis league on Thursday for refusing to join the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) in boycotting China over the mistreatment of tennis star Peng Shuai after she accused a top Communist Party official of rape. The WTA stunned the world on Wednesday by announcing it would suspend all games in China and Hong Kong until the Chinese government conducted a “full and transparent investigation” into Peng’s allegations against former Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli. Peng disappeared from public view for weeks after making her allegation in a social media post aggressively scrubbed by Communist censors. She eventually reappeared in some dubious email communications and photos that may have been created under duress, then allegedly held a teleconference with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which pronounced itself satisfied with her health and safety. WTA chair Steve Simon questioned the value of the IOC teleconference, arguing that Peng could still be acting under compulsion by the brutal Chinese regime, and said he could not in good...
    Although forecasters aren’t confident in the long-range forecast, and the computer models don’t agree, there is a chance for some rain in Southern California late next week. The six- to 10-day outlook from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration favors above-normal precipitation across California, and the temperature outlook for the same period favors below-normal readings. The reason for this glimmer of hope is a change in the weather pattern that has prevailed throughout the fall. The storm track has been consistently funneling systems into the Pacific Northwest since Oct. 1.(Paul Duginski / Los Angeles Times) Since Oct. 1, a stubborn upper-level trough of low pressure in the Gulf of Alaska and the jet stream, also called the storm track, have been funneling numerous atmospheric rivers into the Pacific Northwest, said Alex Tardy, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in San Diego. “Wave after wave,” he said, “like leaving the garden hose on overnight, but in this case, for two months — but not every day, of course.” The hose has been persistently aimed at Seattle. To the...
    TAPACHULA, Mexico (AP) — Benjamín Villalta, a 39-year-old Nicaraguan, couldn’t believe that a Mexican immigration office would open in the middle of the night to give him and some 40 other migrants one-year humanitarian visas allowing them to move about Mexico and work. “They took our information and at most we waited half an hour,” said the excited Villalta. It was a radical change from his first contact with Mexican authorities in early November, who detained him and then dumped him at a remote border crossing with Guatemala. Undeterred, he caught up with a migrant caravan that had left Tapachula, spent three weeks walking with them and then took the government’s offer of a bus ride to another city and a humanitarian visa. Such an option would have been a fantasy before and is now part of a major overhaul of how Mexico is handling migrants at its southern border. It came just days before the United States and Mexico announced Thursday a deal to re-implement under court order a Trump-era policy known as “Remain in Mexico” at Mexico’s...
    As the White House sweats over the rising price of milk, bread and gas, tens of millions of Americans are bracing for an even larger hit to their budgets on the horizon: the return of student loan debt. That is, unless the administration moves to cancel those debts first. Payments on federal student loans have been paused and interest rates set to 0 percent since passage of the CARES Act in March 2020. After repeated extensions, they were set to resume in September 2021, but a final extension allowed the pause to continue through January 2022. That’s been a dramatic financial relief for the nearly 45 million people with student loans who hold more than $1.7 trillion in outstanding student debt nationwide. But come February, payments are set to restart. And activists hope there’s enough time left to mount a pressure campaign on the administration to cancel student debt before payments resume. Organizers argue that after more than a year without payments, people “have gotten so used to federal student loans being paused” and fear their loan payments will eat...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Chinese companies will have to disclose more information about audits and whether they are controlled by a government or else leave U.S. stock markets under a rule approved by securities regulators. The rule approved Thursday by the Securities and Exchange Commission steps up a long-running standoff between Washington and Beijing over how much information companies with U.S.-traded shares must disclosed. Companies that used an auditor in a foreign jurisdiction will be required to confirm they are not “owned or controlled by a government entity” there, according to the SEC. Companies also will be required to disclose additional information in annual reports. “Trading prohibitions” can be imposed on some companies, the SEC said. Other governments cooperate with U.S. demands for more financial details from companies to prevent false reporting. But Beijing, citing security concerns, refuses to allow the U.S. Public Companies Accounting Oversight Board to review work of Chinese auditors. Hundreds of Chinese companies have raised tens of billions of dollars in U.S. financial markets, but their status is a matter of growing dispute with Beijing. The latest...
    Billie Eilish is opening up about how her life and career have changed since skyrocketing to fame. Every year since 2016, the 19-year-old star has sat down with Vanity Fair for the same interview, answering the same series of questions and reacting to her previous answers. In her latest version of the discussion, the star was once again asked about whether or not she feels pressure. "I feel a lot of pressure, but I would also say that back then [in the earlier years of her career], I was more loved," said the singer. "I was pretty overall loved, I would say, to be honest. I was scared because I wanted to keep that love." BILLIE EILISH ADMITS SHE HAS A 'TERRIBLE RELATIONSHIP' WITH HER BODY Billie Eilish said that ‘a ton of people hate’ her these days. (Photo by Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic) Since then, things have changed, as has her attitude. "Now, like tons of people hate me so I'm not worried anymore," Eilish explained. "I'm like, ‘Oh, OK, well, if you like me, you like me, if you...
    CHICAGO (WLS) -- With Chicago poised to make history by creating the first Asian American majority ward, some community groups are amping up the pressure to make sure it happens.The battle for the majority-Asian American ward has been in the making for decades. The ward will be centered around the city's Chinatown community.RELATED: Caucuses still arguing over ward maps 2 days before city council vote"And this time, this year, it must happen," said Paul Luu, CEO of the Chinese American Service League.All three groups that have proposed maps - the Black caucus, the Latino Caucus and the group behind People's Map - have all carved out an Asian American majority ward. But despite that, and due to the nature of the back room dealings where the rules committee is hammering out a map to be voted on Wednesday, Asian American groups remain concerned."The redistricting process, as you may know is very chaotic at the moment. We're worried that if certain groups are not able to agree, and in that disagreement measurement Asian American Majority ward might get lost," said Justin...
    Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins had one of the strangest moments of his NFL career Sunday afternoon and that’s saying a lot for someone who concocted a bizarre plexiglass solution to Covid a few months ago. As the Vikings attempted to mount a late comeback against the San Francisco 49ers, Cousins scrambled to get his team set for a crucial 4th and goal play with just 9:09 left in the game. As Cousins frantically directed his team in the backfield, he desperately tried to beat the play clock by getting the snap off, but embarrassingly lined up behind his guard instead of under center. With the clock nearing zero, running back Alexander Mattison rushed toward Cousins to correct the gaffe, but it was too late. The quarterback was forced to burn a timeout after he lined up behind an offensive lineman who didn’t have the ball. Maybe the hilarious blunder was part of some larger plan to try and get the 49ers to jump offsides? Nope. Cousins was just frazzled and lined up under the wrong lineman. He might not...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Jessica Seinfeld became a vegan almost by stealth. The cookbook author and philanthropist started quietly making separate meals for herself without dairy or meat. “I just started doing it myself and experimenting with it and not talking about it and kind of seeing how I would feel,” she says. “I undeniably felt better.” Over time, she has managed to win over her three teenage kids and her husband, comedian Jerry Seinfeld, who all eat vegan these days. Now, she’s hoping to recruit even more with her new book “Vegan, at Times.” With more than 120 recipes — from vegetable spring rolls with peanut butter dipping sauce to red curry with zucchini noodles — Seinfeld hopes the book can inspire more meatless Mondays (and maybe a few meatless Thursdays, too). “I don’t know if I’ll ever get to be 100% vegan. That isn’t really my plan. My plan is to just do a really good job every single day with eating more vegetables, less meat and less dairy, and I’m succeeding,” she said. “Vegan, at Times,”...
    BATCHES of a common blood pressure drug have been recalled due to a chemical substance being present in the pill. A total of 44 batches of irbesartan are being pulled back from pharmacies and wholesalers as a precautionary measure, experts have said. 1Pills used to treat high blood pressure have been recalled due to fears of a chemical substance being presentCredit: Alamy Irbesartan is used to treat high blood pressure, in turn preventing heart attacks and strokes. These drugs are also used in patients who have recently had a heart attack or are living with heart failure. Experts testing the pill in labs found the presence of chemical substance AZBT. Long-term exposure to the chemical, and consuming 'above acceptable limits' may potentially increase the risk of cancer. Experts are however keen to highlight that there is no UK or international evidence that this substance has caused any harm to patients. Dr Alison Cave, MHRA Chief Safety Officer, said: “Patient safety is at the heart of everything we do. This recall is a precautionary measure to prevent further exposure to AZBT above the...
    President Joe Biden moved swiftly to combat the omicron variant as the nagging coronavirus pandemic presented fresh political challenges to his embattled administration. Biden detailed travel restrictions from southern Africa, the origin region of the variant, while urging the public to get vaccinated and wear protective face masks. “We’re throwing everything we can at this virus,” Biden said Monday in remarks to reporters from the White House. But the emergence of a new coronavirus strain at the outset of the holiday season is yet another obstacle for the president to navigate amid a minefield of lingering political problems. “People want to go back to normal and let go of the anxiety” from the pandemic, said Sarah Longwell, a Never Trump Republican political operative who has been conducting focus groups with swing voters, Biden voters, and voters who supported former President Donald Trump in 2020. “The longer it hangs around, it creates a sense among voters that things are not going well.” Some Democratic operatives are predicting at least equal political peril for Republicans should omicron dominate the winter months of...
    The Bay Area weather forecast as fall heads into the stretch drive and winter awaits in the distance is quite similar to those that persist for days and days in the summer. Sunny, with clear skies. And quite warm — just not as warm as July and August. “For the foreseeable future, the next week or so, maybe a bit longer, we’re gonna have this stubborn high pressure hanging around the region,” National Weather Service meteorologist Sarah McCorkle said. “Eventually, we’ll get some relief, but it probably won’t be until sometime next week.” The immediate consequence of that high pressure is that more heat records could fall on Wednesday. McCorkle said that is expected to be the warmest day under the this high-pressure hangout and that temperatures in some areas could rise into the low 70s. San Jose in Santa Clara County; Oakland in Alameda County; Walnut Creek in Contra Costa County; and San Rafael in Marin County are among the places expected to reach at least 70 degrees, according to McCorkle. The warm spell already brought a record on...
    Why does it matter? Disney's censorship reportedly marks the first time a major American media company has suppressed anti-CCP content in Hong Kong, but many fear it won't be the last. “This is the first notable time an American streaming giant has censored content in Hong Kong,” Kenny Ng, an associate professor specializing in film censorship at Hong Kong Baptist University, told Bloomberg News. “Basically, the whole story is for streaming companies to be more tailored to a Chinese audience and to not offend the Chinese government,” he added. “This is likely to continue in the future with more companies with financial interests in China.” What's the background?Hong Kong residents have seen many of their civil liberties hampered in recent months following Beijing's imposition of a sweeping national security law aimed at quashing pro-democracy demonstrations in the territory. Hong Kong had enjoyed relative autonomy since the British agreed to turn it over to China in 1997 under the Sino-British Joint Declaration. But over the past few years, the communist regime in China has contravened the agreement and effectively terminated...
    THE US will "increase pressure" on Iran if talks are used to accelerate its nuclear programme. Talks are scheduled to resume in Vienna on Monday. 2Iran is resuming talks with the US on Monday The talks are to resume between the US and Iran after a months-long hiatus. Other "major powers" will also be participating, according to US News. "If Iran thinks it can use this time to build more leverage and then come back and say they want something better it simply won't work. We and our partners won't go for it," envoy Robert Malley said to BBC Sounds. The talks are alleged to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal and relieve Iran from hundreds of economic sanctions. "If that's Iran's approach, which is to try to use the negotiations as cover for an accelerated nuclear programme, and as I say, drag its feet at the nuclear table, we will have to respond in a way that is not our preference," said Malley. "Nobody should be surprised if at that point there is increased pressure on Iran." Most read in...
    Ever since our ancestors crawled out of the ocean we have had to maintain the salt water constancy of our milieu intérieur, our inside juices. This principal was first elucidated by Claude Bernard in the late 1800s. We do this by the mechanisms that keep the salt and water in our bodies the same as the salt and water of the ocean back then. We have written about salt and water many times in this column but a review article in this week’s New England Journal of Medicine sparks more about this ongoing saga and a new maybe breakthrough in the treatment of high blood pressure. (1) Lately salt and water are part of the generalized anxiety. That is because we want to eat too much salt and it seems to be related to hypertension, the silent killer of way too many of us, and because of silliness about how we don’t drink enough water. It is also interesting to me because the parallels between hunger for salt and thirst for water may teach us some things about hunger for...

    Winning in New York immortalizes coaches and athletes. Losing gets them fired. That’s the deal. “You’re always on notice,” Giants special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey said Friday. “This is the New York Giants. We’re in a high performance business. So when you don’t perform at a high level, that’s the way it is.” That’s it, and that’s where Joe Judge and the Giants (3-7) find themselves as the red-hot Eagles (5-6) come to MetLife Stadium in the wake of offensive coordinator Jason Garrett’s firing: The pressure is on them all. And they wouldn’t have it any other way. “I’m responsible for everything on this team,” Judge said coming out of last week’s atrocity in Tampa. “I’m the head coach. I’ve never shied away from that.” So it’s on Judge and new play-caller Freddie Kitchens to improve the offense. It’s on quarterback Daniel Jones to take ownership of what this new offense looks like, since his career trajectory is most definitely riding on the results. It’s on Saquon Barkley to be a difference-maker. And...

    DENVER (CBS4) – NOAA released their outlook for the first two weeks of December on Saturday and if you’re hoping for a change to recent dry and warm weather pattern then you’ll be disappointed. With Colorado’s worsening drought conditions we can only hope that there’s something in the pipeline to make this outlook end up being wrong.

    Plans to build a controversial solar farm on treasured countryside that inspired author Thomas Hardy have been given the go-ahead after the hype generated by the Cop26 climate summit persuaded councillors to back them. Proposals for the industrial-scale farm in near Sherborne in Dorset were slammed by planning experts, conservationists, architects and hundreds of residents who said they will 'decimate' 189 acres of land. Historic England, the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and even officials from the local planning authority involved agreed it would cause unacceptable harm to the rural landscape. The objectors have now accused councillors of losing all sense of proportion after they ignored advice from their own experts to refuse it and agreed to back the scheme. Ray Hartley, from the CPRE, said he was 'astonished' by the decision. He said the only explanation was that pressure from Cop26 swung the vote in favour of green energy despite the damage it would cause to the landscape.  The land is part of the distinctive Blackmore Vale, which Victorian author Thomas Hardy referred to as the 'Vale of...
    AARON RAMSDALE wants to face a red-hot Cristiano Ronaldo when Arsenal face Manchester United next week.  The Gunners head to Old Trafford on Thursday in what looks set to be Ralf Rangnick’s first game in interim charge. 2Cristiano Ronaldo has been warned he needs to be at his best against Arsenal next weekCredit: Rex 2Aaron Ramsdale is ready to keep Ronaldo at bay when Arsenal face the Red DevilsCredit: Rex Ronaldo has scored just one Premier League goal in his last SEVEN appearances, dating back to September.  But with his heroics for United in the Champions League, he is now just one strike shy of 800 career goals.  Even so, Ramsdale insists he would prefer a ‘full-on battle’ with the Portuguese superstar than a quiet night between the sticks. The Arsenal goalkeeper said: “I’d never thought I’d play against Ronaldo, but I really hope he’s on it against us because it gives me a chance to test myself.  “As much as you want to go somewhere like Old Trafford, there’s no better feeling than getting on top of someone and...
    SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — The pressure has reached a pinnacle for the Syracuse Orange: Win the regular-season finale against No. 20 Pittsburgh or there’s no bowl game. “There’s definitely a lot of pressure, but it’s a good type of pressure,” redshirt senior defensive end Josh Black said. “We need this last win and a lot of the older guys are really trying to push for this. It would just mean a lot. We don’t want to end up on a bad note.” The game against the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division champion Panthers (9-2, 6-1, CFP No. 20) is Saturday night in the Carrier Dome, and Pitt has won 16 of the past 19 games in the series. Syracuse ( 5-6, 2-5) has dropped two in a row, lopsided setbacks on the road to Louisville and then-No. 25 North Carolina State. “We can compete with anybody. We’ve shown that,” Syracuse defensive back Garrett Williams said. “It’s just a matter of getting back into that rhythm again. Sometimes teams get hot and cold, so right now we’ve just got to get...
    ISTANBUL (AP) — A Turkish court on Friday extended the imprisonment of philanthropist Osman Kavala, whose case caused a diplomatic crisis with the U.S. and other Western countries after they called for his release. The court’s decision paves the way for the Council of Europe to launch infringement proceedings against Turkey. Kavala has been incarcerated without being convicted for more than four years, prompting claims of political persecution against the businessman amid international criticism of Ankara’s crackdown on opponents. “This trial is yet another brazen episode in the relentless political persecution for which the European Court has condemned Turkey,” said Nils Muiznieks, Amnesty International’s Europe director. “When a state shows such disregard for it’s obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights, the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers must take action and initiate infringement proceedings.” The Council of Europe, a 47-member bloc that upholds human rights, warned Turkey in September that it would begin proceedings unless it released Kavala before a ministerial meeting next week. The process could lead to Turkey’s membership or voting rights being suspended, further isolating...

Ex-Wales striker Earnshaw said: "Whoever we play we have to be positive in our approach because we have some very good players.

    If you’re not feeling particularly cheery about holiday shopping this year, you’re far from alone, according to a new survey. Nearly half of American consumers are dreading it, LendingTree said after polling more than 2,000 people. And the big reasons come down to how much they think they’ll need to spend on presents and festivities, as well as the pressure to purchase gifts. Worse, about a quarter of Americans said they’re losing sleep because they’re stressing out about holiday spending, according to the survey. “There’s a lot of stuff that’s bringing on this feeling of dread. Really, the biggest issue is just the cost of things,” Matt Schulz, chief credit analyst at LendingTree, told WTOP’s Dimitri Sotis. “Life is so expensive in 2021. And it seems like it’s getting more expensive every day. And the holidays are always pricey. But this year in particular, people definitely seem to be a little worried and are dreading these holidays.” And according to Schulz, about one in seven or one in eight consumers are still paying off last year’s holiday bills. “That’s...
    Many patients with high blood pressure may be unknowingly taking medications that are contributing to increased blood pressure, according to a study in JAMA this week.   A team of researchers out of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, found that 18% — or nearly one in five — U.S. adults diagnosed with hypertension, reported taking medications that may actually increase blood pressure. Hypertension was defined in the study as an average systolic BP of 130 mm Hg or higher, average diastolic BP of 80 mm Hg or higher, or being told by a physician, the individual had high blood pressure. The authors also defined uncontrolled hypertension as an average systolic BP of 130 mm Hg or higher or an average diastolic BP of 80 mm Hg or higher.  "The majority of U.S. adults with hypertension have not achieved recommended blood pressure (BP) targets. One often overlooked barrier to control is iatrogenic, the use of medications that are known to raise BP," the authors stated in the published report.   FAUCI VAGUE ON CHANGING DEFINITION OF ‘FULLY VACCINATED’: ‘WE MIGHT MODIFY’  This photo shows medical workers near the East Campus main entrance of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Harvard teaching hospital,...
    BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — The leaders of three Central European countries on Tuesday expressed their solidarity with Poland in an ongoing migration crisis on its eastern border with Belarus, and urged the European Union to increase its support for the protection of the bloc’s external borders. At a news briefing in Hungary’s capital of Budapest following talks between the prime ministers of Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said the situation on his country’s eastern border went beyond migration. It’s a “new political crisis” in which people are being used by human smugglers and mafias in cooperation with the authoritarian government of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko to exert pressure on the EU, Morawiecki said. “Human beings are used as objects, as tools, which is horrible. In the hands of the Lukashenko regime, they are merely tools,” Morawiecki said. Tuesday’s summit of the Visegrad Four grouping of Central European countries came as thousands of migrants, mostly from countries in the Middle East, have traveled to Belarus in recent months and attempted to cross...
    ABC News chief Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl on Tuesday explained why the Gmail account of Donald Trump's former chief of staff Mark Meadows may provide critical evidence for the House select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. During an appearance on CNN, Karl explained his interest in Meadows to anchor John Berman, saying part of the backstory behind Trump's notorious phone call pressuring Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to "find 11,780 votes." Meadows reportedly voiced frustration when he finally connected on the phone to a Raffensperger deputy."We've been trying to reach out to you 18 different times, and you've ignored our inquiries," Meadows reportedly complained.Initially, Raffensperger's office was mystified, but then they figured out what had been going on. "Raffensperger himself had been receiving text messages from a Gmail account, Mark Meadows' Gmail account, that he thought was certainly a prank," Karl said. "You know, his number had been put out on the internet, he'd been getting all kinds of prank calls, so Mark Meadows was reaching out to a top official in Georgia...

    Glass bottles move down a conveyor belt on the Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select Tennessee Whiskey bottling line at Jack Daniel's Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, U.S., on Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014.Luke Sharrett | Bloomberg | Getty Images From whiskey distillers in the humble hills of Kentucky to winemakers in the sunny slopes of California, the demand for glass bottles has outpaced supply this year, a chain reaction triggered, in part, by the coronavirus pandemic. The world's supply chain — already lengthy and tangled in the United States — is continuing to bear the brunt of surging consumer demand, labor shortages and overseas manufacturing delays, which has led to higher transportation costs and inflation. David Ozgo, chief economist for the Distilled Spirits Council, said glass shortages are being felt throughout the sector, whether it's tequila or vodka or whiskey. "Some of the large distillers, even though they have multiyear contracts for millions of bottles, they're finding in some instances that they have to pick and choose as to which bottle sizes, they're going to get," Ozgo said. This could eventually lead...
    Candace Cameron Bure was crowned Hallmark Channel's "Christmas queen" after making her 10th holiday film. The actress, who is currently starring in "The Christmas Contest," admitted it was overwhelming at first. "I did feel an immense amount of pressure [last year] as every movie does well in the ratings," the 45-year-old recently told Us Weekly. "And then you always want to hit that mark and exceed that mark. And last year, I finally let it go because it’s not the reason why I make these movies." The former "Fuller House" star said it’s been crucial for her to make family-friendly programming. And she’s not ready to pass on her coveted title anytime soon.

    Beijing (Reuters)China downgraded its diplomatic ties with Lithuania on Sunday, expressing strong dissatisfaction with Vilnius for allowing Taiwan to open a de facto embassy in the Baltic state, raising tensions in a spat that has also dragged in Washington.China views self-ruled and democratically governed Taiwan as its own territory with no right to the trappings of a state, and has stepped up pressure on countries to downgrade or sever their relations with the island, even non-official ones.Beijing had already expressed anger that Lithuania -- which has formal relations with China and not Taiwan -- let Taiwan open its office in the country, and recalled its ambassador in August.The Taiwanese Representative Office in Lithuania opened on Thursday. Other Taiwan offices in Europe and the United States use the name of the city Taipei, avoiding a reference to the island itself, something that has further angered Beijing.China's Foreign Ministry said in a brusque statement that Lithuania ignored China's "solemn stance" and the basic norms of international relations in allowing Taiwan to set up its representative office in Lithuania.Read MoreLithuania says throw away...
    Facebook was under fresh pressure to ‘clean up its act’ last night amid claims it dragged its feet over false posts about Covid jabs. The social media giant sparked fury for allegedly failing to act over nearly two out of three misleading posts within 48 hours. The figures emerged in previously unpublished correspondence between former Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden and Facebook chief spin doctor Nick Clegg, the former Deputy Prime Minister and ex-Liberal Democrat leader.
