    BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — The Biden administration revoked the terrorist designation of Colombia’s former FARC guerrilla army on Tuesday, five years after the rebel group signed a peace deal with the government. However, it imposed the same designation on two splinter groups that are still fighting in remote pockets of the South American country. The FARC holdouts newly designated by the United States as foreign terrorist organizations are the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army – known by the Spanish acronym of FARC-EP — and Segunda Marquetalia. Here are more details on these newly designated terrorist groups: HOW DID THE SPLINTER GROUPS ARISE? After five decades of internal conflict that killed an estimated 26,000 people and forced more than 6 million to flee their homes, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia signed a peace deal in which 13,000 fighters gave up their weapons in exchange for numerous concessions from the government, including development programs for rural areas and the opportunity for former guerrilla leaders to participate in local politics and avoid time in prison. But a group of about...

    A personal trainer has revealed what she eats in a typical day to gain muscle and maintain a toned physique. Rachel Dillon, from Queensland, Australia, fills her 'day on a plate' with fresh, healthy meals and consumes 2500 calories daily.  To ensure she gradually builds muscle, Rachel eats more calories than her body burns every day, but she admitted a calorie surplus can be difficult to stick to.  'Honestly with my busy schedule I personally find a calorie surplus can be quite hard to adhere to, so preparation is KEY!!!' she wrote on Instagram and shared a video with her 1.2million followers.

    I was warned ages ago that violence is not a solution to any problem, and that if I wanted Carrot Top to stop doing prop comedy I should just bide my time. Did it work? I’m scared to look. Can someone at least let me know if Jeff Dunham is still at large? But Republicans these days seem to have missed the memo. In their bath salts hallucination of a universe, political violence is tres chic. The party’s modern luminaries include rampaging death-gnome Kyle Rittenhouse, scaredy-’ristocrats Mark and Patricia McCloskey, Jan. 6 rioter and tragic Donald Trump victim Ashli Babbitt, and Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte, who earned piggish praise from Trump in 2017 after body-slamming a reporter. (How conservatives’ Tinker-Toy minds manage to shart out encomiums to Rittenhouse while seizing on the absurdity that the Capitol officer who shot Babbitt is somehow a murderer is a mystery for the ages.) And now? Violently attempting to overthrow the U.S. government on behalf of clammy fascist Donald Trump is apparently a feather in your cap if you’re running for office in Texas. A North Texas man...

    National media coverage of the Mississippi abortion law at the center of a major Supreme Court Case has failed to note that the law would leave the state more pro-choice than nearly any developed country, Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves told the Daily Caller News Foundation. The Supreme Court this week will hear arguments in the most consequential abortion case since Roe v. Wade. The case, Dobbs, presents the court with the opportunity to overturn Roe and correct one of greatest acts of judicial arrogance in history. /1 https://t.co/GrVN8CwT7Z — Carrie Severino (@JCNSeverino) November 29, 2021 “The most underreported aspect of this story is where abortion laws in America are relative to where abortion laws in other parts of the world are,” Reeves told DCNF. The Mississippi law, which was blocked by a federal court in May, bans most abortions at 15 weeks, at which point babies are capable of feeling pain. The Supreme Court will determine whether to strike down the law in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. “There are 42 countries in Europe that allow elective abortions,” Reeves explained....
    MEAN-MUGGING is a slang term that refers to a person's facial expression where they may appear to look upset. Mean-mugging often is done unintentionally by the one doing it, leaving the other party involved at-risk of misreading the impression. 2'Mean-mugging' is a trendy term that refers to when a person thinks another is giving them a dirty lookCredit: Getty How do I know if someone is 'mean-mugging' me? The slang term 'mean-mugging' has entered our everyday vernacular and many are wondering how to use the term correctly. The act of 'mean-mugging' another person involves making, either involuntarily or voluntarily, less-than-welcoming faces at someone as they approach you. Mean-mugging is often done unintentionally. Based off the way one's face naturally rests, it may simply be a default look rather than a mal-intentioned gaze directed at someone.

    The penultimate CFP rankings were released on Tuesday night and we’re dissecting the new Top 25 to see where the committee was right and wrong. Nothing about this season or any iteration of the CFP rankings has been ho-hum this season. Every week, we’ve seen big shake-ups in the College Football Playoff picture and this past week was no exception, though that could’ve been expected during rivalry week. With Michigan upending Ohio State, previously ranked No. 2, and Oklahoma State picking up a monster win over Oklahoma in Bedlam, we knew that things were going to get moved around in the committee’s latest iteration of the Top 25.

    (CNN)The Supreme Court hears oral arguments Wednesday in a case that could result in the repeal of Roe v. Wade, the decision legalizing abortion nationwide that's been at the center of American politics for nearly 50 years. Here are the key details:How to listen and follow along Arguments begin at 10 a.m. ET. The court still doesn't allow TV cameras, but it has finally relented on live audio. You can listen on CNN.com and follow along with our live coverage. Read MoreWhat is the Mississippi law at issue? It bars most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, a standard that violates Roe v. Wade. It's one of several laws passed in various states with the purpose of getting the Supreme Court to hear a direct challenge to Roe. The 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals -- perhaps the most conservative appeals court in the country -- blocked the law, saying it violated Roe and Supreme Court precedent. Mississippi appealed to the Supreme Court, which agreed last spring to hear the case. What does Roe say? Roe guaranteed a woman's right...
    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has physically healed from injury, but mentally healing from his first career absence could be the challenge. Russell Wilson is 0-3 since returning from his finger injury. The prolific Pacific Northwest passer hasn’t scored more than 15 points in a game since his Week 10 return. In his first game, he was held to zero. Then 13 points, then 15, due to a miraculous last-second touchdown against the Washington Football Team. Wilson’s flash of brilliance was almost enough to take the game to overtime, but it confirmed something else: Wilson’s poor play is not a physical problem. Can we agree that @DangeRussWilson middle finger is better? The grip and deep ball accuracy are back.

    President Biden's gut reaction to the news that a deadly suicide bomb had gone off amid the American evacuation from Afghanistan has been revealed.  During an Afghanistan briefing on Aug. 26, head of US Central Command Gen. Frank McKenzie turned ashen as he was handed a piece of paper. He told the meeting, which he'd called into by video, that a bomb had been detonated near the Hamid Karzai Airport - four services members were already dead, three near dead, dozens more injured.  There were gasps throughout the room and Biden winced before going silent for a long pause. 'The worst that can happen has happened,' the president said once he broke the silence, meeting participants told the New York Times.  The death toll eventually rose to 13 US service members and over 170 Afghans.  The fateful event has since marred the Biden administration's record and defined the frenzied withdrawal that has scored criticism from both sides. Following the attack, which terror group ISIS-K later claimed, the US carried out a retaliatory drone strike, which they initially claimed killed a terrorist...

    Q: I just want my own records from a hospital, but have to submit a specific form to comply with HIPAA.  The form seems burdensome. What is HIPAA and what is the reason for it? A.L., Long Beach Ron Sokol  A:  HIPAA is the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which was enacted in 1996. The primary purpose of HIPAA is to protect patient privacy.

    (CNN)On the Wednesday morning before Thanksgiving, my wife, two kids, and I prepared to drive from St. Paul, Minnesota, to Omaha, Nebraska. We were all so eager to resume a family tradition that we had missed in last year's terrible winter. As we packed our suitcases, chose snacks for the road, and filled coolers with pumpkin and pecan pie, two different kinds of cranberry sauce, and a vat of my wife's famous mashed potatoes, life felt comfortingly normal. David Perry But we also did something different. Before we finished breakfast, we broke out cotton swabs, circled the inside of each nostril at least five times, then placed the swab in solution and applied the solution to testing strips. Over in Omaha, my sister and her family did the same thing. Within fifteen minutes, the rapid antigen Covid-19 tests came back negative and -- with at least a little more confidence -- we hit the road. Five days later, as we made our way back home, news of the Omicron variant was sweeping the country, and indeed the world....
    New Orleans Pelicans center Jonas Valanciunas and Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry now share a fascinating statistic unique only to them.  What does towering Pelicans center Jonas Valanciunas have in common with prolific Warriors shooter Steph Curry? It’s certainly not height. Curry is listed at 6-foot-2, while Valanciunas is oversized at 6-foot-11. It’s not team record, either. The Warriors and the Pelicans sit at opposite ends of the NBA spectrum. The Warriors are the best team in the league this season, leading the Western Conference at 18-2. The Pelicans sit at 14th in the conference with a 6-17 record, one that marginally improved in their 123-104 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. Playing the Clippers is what Valanciunas and Curry share, in part, at least. It was the stats that both of these players garnered in victories over the Clippers that gave each of these players impressive individual stat lines.

Opening the case for the defense, Maxwell's attorney Bobbi Sternheim told the jury: “Ever since Eve was accused of tempting Adam with the apple, women have been blamed for the bad behavior of men, and women are often vilified and punished more than men are. "The charges against Ghislaine Maxwell are for things Jeffrey Epstein...

Henrriquez said the man she was chatting with is 22-years-old. “We spent about six months talking to each other before meeting. I wasn’t afraid, I was conscious about what I was doing,” she said. “I told him I wanted to leave with him. I wasn’t thinking about what I was doing. He lives in Philadelphia and he drove down to pick me up,” she added. North Miami Beach police said Saturday morning the man picked up Henrriquez at her home in the area of 14 Avenue and 182 Street.

    Last month, U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized hundreds of Lagori 7 Stones toys, a popular game in which kids toss a ball at seven stacked, square stones to knock them down. A lab analysis found the toys were coated in lead, cadmium and barium — heavy metals that can impair the brain and nervous system, make breathing difficult and lead to numbness and paralysis. Last year, the European Commission issued safety alerts about counterfeit L.O.L. Surprise! dolls containing phthalates, a chemical that softens plastic but is also an endocrine disruptor that can impact the reproductive and immune systems. The chemical also was found in counterfeit Disney Frozen II dolls. Clip Clop Infant Activity rattles were recalled in April by the Consumer Product Safety Commission because the plastic handle could come loose, freeing small beads that could choke a baby if swallowed. The trumpet toy in the Janod Confetti Live Musical Set was recalled in January because small parts could come loose and do the same. But both recalled toys could be found on e-Bay this holiday season. “As...
    The new COVID strain is 'cause for concern, not a cause for panic,' President Joe Biden said Monday. In remarks from the White House on Monday, President Joe Biden urged Americans not to panic about the newly discovered omicron coronavirus variant, projecting calm as reports of variant cases around the globe continue to pile up. "This variant is a cause for concern, not a cause for panic," Biden said, flanked by Vice President Kamala Harris and his chief medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci. "We'll fight this variant with scientific and knowledgable actions and speed, not chaos and confusion." First flagged by a doctor in South Africa, omicron cases have since been discovered everywhere from Australia to Italy to Canada, and the president over the weekend moved to restrict air travel for non-U.S. citizens seeking to enter the country from South Africa and seven other African nations. Though there are not yet any documented examples of the new strain here, the president on Monday acknowledged it's "almost inevitable" that omicron cases will be...

    THESE shocking images give an idea of what millions of people with diabetes have struggled with. Wavy vision, blurred vision, floaters, colour loss and total vision loss are all symptoms of diabetes. 5Diabetics' vision can get wavy, as illustrated using a very fragile-looking Tower BridgeCredit: Lenstore The condition happens when a person cannot produce enough insulin to control blood sugar levels, or their insulin does not work efficiently. Most people know that diabetes, both types 1 and 2, is when a person has to constantly manage their blood sugar levels. But did you know one of the key complications of the disease is vision problems, among many others? It happens because too much sugar in your blood over time can lead to the blockage of the tiny blood vessels that nourish the retina. The retina is a layer of tissue in the back of the eye that senses light and sends images to the brain. It is vital for being able to correctly see what’s in front of you. Damage to the retina cuts off the blood supply and, as...
    A huge, swordfish-like creature with a veritable 'arsenal of teeth' swam the shallow waters of what is today Colombia some 130 million years ago, a study has found. Researchers from McGill University reanalysed fossilised remains that were unearthed near Villa de Leyva in Colombia's Boyacá department back in the 1970s. The specimen has a stunningly preserved, 3-feet-long skull, and  is an ichthyosaur, an order of marine reptiles that lived from 250–90 million years ago. In 1997, experts assigned the fossil to the genus platypterygius, a grouping some have said is a 'wastebasket' taxon used to classify species that don't fit elsewhere. Yet fresh study of the skull, which is held in the Colombian National Geological Museum in Bogotá, has revealed that it belongs to a new genus — 'Kyhytysuka'. The revelation, the team said, is helping to refine our understanding of the ichthyosaur family tree and how its members evolved.  Scroll down for video A huge, swordfish-like creature (depicted in an artist's impression) with a veritable 'arsenal of teeth' swam the water of what is today Colombia some 130 million years ago, a...
    LOS ANGELES — While the Warriors took to the skies for a short road trip, Klay Thompson made the even shorter trek south to Santa Cruz by land. The avid boat captain gave it some thought but decided against sailing down the coast to the Warriors’ G League affiliate. Thompson followed up his first G League scrimmage with a full day of practice Monday and another planned run of five-on-five Tuesday, while the NBA’s Warriors face the Phoenix Suns in the first of a highly anticipated home-and-home series with their top competition in the Western Conference. With another potential playoff preview looming on Christmas Day, could Thompson be back by then? It’s right in line with the vague timeline put forth by Thompson and Warriors’ team doctors.

    FOXBORO (CBS) — It has been a while since the New England Revolution set a new MLS regular season record with 73 points and claimed the franchise’s first Supporters’ Shield. Now it’s finally time to see what the top-seeded Revs can do in the playoffs. The Revolution were, for lack of a better word, awesome during the regular season.

It is a condition that causes inflammation of the digestive system. The inflammation is the body's reaction to injury or irritation, and can cause redness, swelling and pain. It is often described as a chronic condition and although sufferers will have periods of good health, there are flare-ups where symptoms are more active. It is one of the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease - the other is a condition known as Ulcerative Colitis. It can be caused by the genes a person has inherited, an abnormal reaction of the immune system and is probably triggered by something in the environment.
