    It’s no secret that gasoline prices have increased some 50% since last year. The higher prices have rippled through the U.S. economy, raising shipping and delivery costs for almost everything. After first denying gasoline prices were rising, then blaming the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), and most recently accusing oil companies of conspiring to raise gasoline prices, the administration has settled on a two-pronged response: announcing the release of 50 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) and blaming people for not buying electric vehicles (EVs). (RELATED: Biden Announces Release Of 50 Million Barrels Of Oil From Strategic Petroleum Reserve) The U.S. consumes around 20 million barrels of crude oil every day, around one-fifth of total world production of around 98 million barrels per day. So, the planned SPR release represents about two and one-half days of U.S. crude consumption and around five hours of world production. Moreover, the oil won’t be released all at once. Some of it may even be shipped overseas, as has happened in the few previous releases. Finally, the SPR...
    In an interview last year, the incoming CEO of Twitter, Parag Agrawal, made it clear that free speech is not a priority for the company, and that his platform would not be “bound” by the First Amendment. Agrawal said: “The kinds of things that we do about this is, focus less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed.” Agrawal, formerly Chief Technology Officer of the social media company, was announced as the successor to Jack Dorsey earlier today, following the latter’s decision to step down as CEO. In an interview with the MIT Technology Review last year, Agrawal said that Twitter no longer considered free speech to be an area of focus. “Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment, but our role is to serve a healthy public conversation and our moves are reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation,” said Agrawal. “The kinds of things that we do about this is, focus less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed.” Agrawal...

    (CNN)Wouldn't you like to stop your stressful, anxious thinking in its tracks? Turns out you can, and while you're at it, you can make yourself feel and act better too. How to choose a therapist who will be the best fit for youThat's the basis of cognitive behavioral therapy, which burst onto the psychological scene in the 1960s and has been gathering accolades ever since. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, CBT, as is it called, is designed to "uncover unhealthy patterns of thought and how they may be causing self-destructive behaviors and beliefs." It may not be for everyone. Therapists typically assign "homework," so it takes active participation on the part of the client, and it doesn't address underlying issues such as childhood trauma or systemic problems in families.But for those willing to put in the work, cognitive behavioral therapy can be just what the doctor ordered. CBT has been shown in randomized clinical trials to ease depression, anxiety, obsessive thinking, eating and sleep disorders, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder and more.

    PLYMPTON (CBS) – A five-year-old boy was honored Wednesday after he saved his family from carbon monoxide poisoning.

    Black Friday and Cyber Monday – the ‘holidays’ designed to get your credit cards out and buy, buy, buy – are just around the corner. If you aren’t planning to partake in the oh-so-American act of rushing to a Walmart or Bath & Body Works the second you’re finished with your Thanksgiving meal, you may be getting ready to take advantage of all the sales and discounts on retailers’ online platforms. There are a lot of perks to doing your shopping online nowadays. You get to avoid large crowds and the always-present possibility of being exposed to COVID-19. All the products are organized into neat web pages instead of piled onto shelves and hanging on racks. And everything arrives perfectly packaged right to your doorstep.  However, the reality of how online shopping impacts the environment, fills landfills, and promotes unconscious consumerism may make you rethink how and where you get your discounted goods this holiday season.  The Carbon Emissions  Holiday-related shipments are on the rise.

    Pete Buttigieg said despite chatter of him succeeding Joe Biden as president, he isn't thinking about running for president again right now as a poll shows he has the highest name recognition of any cabinet member besides Vice President Kamala Harris. The openly gay new father of two told Politico on Friday during an event at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport that he's enjoying his time off of the campaign trail and is focused on his job as Transportation secretary. 'I'd say the other thing that I'm really enjoying about this job, although it's very demanding and obviously requiring a lot, is that this is the least I have had to think about campaigns and elections in about a decade and that's a very good thing,' he said in the interview published Wednesday. Since 2010, Buttigieg, 39, has run for treasurer of Indiana, mayor of South Bend, chair of the Democratic National Committee and president of the United States. And even though Buttigieg isn't thinking about what comes next, there is buzz about him being Biden's heir. Inside the West Wing,...

    Zach Wilson has inched closer to returning after missing four weeks with a sprained PCL. Wilson went through his second week of practice with another pregame warmup on Sunday. Robert Saleh felt good about the No. 2 overall pick’s progress and will make a decision on his return this week. “Zack had a really good workout yesterday,” Saleh said Monday. “He’s being evaluated today. We’ll get him through another one tomorrow and be able to evaluate him from there. And then we’ll be able to make a decision Wednesday morning.” The Jets have played with three different quarterbacks in Wilson’s absence, with each signal caller flashing moments of competency. Mike White threw for 405 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions against the Bengals in an upset win Week 8. White played well enough that Saleh left the door open that he could continue starting even if Wilson was healthy. Then he struggled immensely against the Bills in Week 10, tossing four interceptions in a blowout loss. Josh Johnson threw for 317 yards with three...

    Dr. Scott Atlas accused the U.S. on Sunday of “bizarrely denying the science” by not recognizing previous Covid infections as a source of immunity. “We are the only country that I know of… who refuses to accept this,” Atlas told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo. “If you are in Europe, they count having had the infection as protection, when you have these Green Passes or whatever they call them to travel.” The U.S. does not have a Green Pass equivalent at a federal level, but some cities across the U.S. have mandated proof of vaccination to enter indoor venues such as restaurants and gyms. The Green Pass system currently recognizes recovery from Covid for a period of 180 days after infection. Studies have shown that a prior Covid infection can provide protection against reinfection. According to a study published by the Lancet, the median period of time that protection lasts is 16 months. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, released a report at the end of October recognizing immunity acquired from a past infection, but found that “vaccination provides a “higher, more robust, and...
    Even by the crass standards of the BBC, there is something supremely ironic for it to broadcast a major two-part documentary about briefing wars between members of the Royal Family while the embers of the Martin Bashir affair are still glowing. And how counter-productive and foolish of the Corporation to refuse to let the Palace see tonight’s opening instalment, titled the Princess And The Press, before it is screened. Is it any wonder that courtiers are thinking ‘very carefully’ about future projects with the BBC where cooperation is essential, with next year’s Platinum Jubilee tributes to the Queen at the very top of the list? It is highly unusual for all three royal households, representing the Queen, the Prince of Wales and Prince William, to unite in a threat of a potential boycott of our national broadcaster but it demonstrates what is at stake. And it underlines a shared sense of collective anger at the programme.

              moreby Roger Kimball   “We must never,” Bismarck is said to have warned, “look into the origins of laws or sausages.” Sage advice, I’ve always thought (and no pun intended with that “sage”)—but how much at odds it is with the dominant current of modern thought, which is to say Enlightenment thought. Immanuel Kant, a great hero of the Enlightenment, summed up the alternative to Bismarck’s counsel when, in an essay called “What is Enlightenment?,” he offered Sapere Aude, Dare to know!, as a motto for the movement. Enlightened man, Kant thought, was the first real adult: the first to realize his potential as an autonomous being—a being, as the etymology of the word implies, who “gives the law to himself.” As Kant stressed, this was a moral as well as an intellectual achievement, since it involved courage as much as insight: courage to put aside convention, tradition, and superstition (how the three tended to coalesce for Enlightened thinkers!) in order to rely for guidance on the dictates of reason alone. Bismarck’s observation cautions reticence about certain matters; it implies that about some...

    A Liverpool taxi driver is being hailed a hero Monday morning for reportedly diverting what could have been a mass casualty event when a passenger he was carrying started acting suspiciously. Just before 11 a.m on Sunday while the nation held a two minute moment of silence for Rememberence Day, a taxi blew up outside the Liverpool Women’s Hospital. Video published by The Daily Mail shows the moment the cab exploded as it pulled up to the hospital with the driver escaping the cloud of smoke. While police and counter-terrorism officials have not confirmed the role of the driver, many others have speculated, including Liverpool mayor Joanne Anderson, who said, “The taxi driver, in his heroic efforts, has managed to divert what could have been an absolutely awful disaster at the hospital. Our thanks go to him and our emergency services, and authorities have worked through the night to divert anything further and we've all been on standby and in constant contact to provide any support that's needed.” The driver, who The Daily Beast is not identifying until...
    DENVER (CBS4) – A long time nonprofit isn’t letting supply chain issues get in the way of the spirit of giving this year. Denver Feed-A-Family, run by the Epworth Foundation, has been a tradition for nearly 60 years. The annual giveaway of Thanksgiving food baskets is in honor of Daddy Bruce Randolph, a Denver restaurant owner and philanthropist who gave out meals to those in need for the holiday.  READ MORE: Volunteers Donate Time To Protect Drivers From Catalytic Converter Theft (credit: CBS) “I’ve always considered it our Super Bowl to be able to put this on every year and to be able to reach so many people in one day,” said Rev.

According to Wooding, shortages and supply chain issues affected the ability of several stores to donate food, so this year they’re giving families the same $35 worth of help in a Walmart gift card.   “We didn’t want the tradition to stop, and we know that people are in need and for...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki suggested Friday that President Joe Biden is unfazed by the 'Let's Go Brandon' chants, signs and merchandise that are supposed to be a stand-in for 'f**k Joe Biden.'    'I don't think he spends much time focused on it or thinking about it,' she said at the briefing, after a number of prominent Republicans, including former President Donald Trump, have embraced the phrase. Psaki added, 'Well, it takes two to move toward a more civil engagement and discourse in this country.'  'And the president's going to continue to operate, as you said, from the promise he made early on, which is that he wants to govern for all Americans,' Psaki stated.  During the 2020 campaign, Biden called for an end of the 'uncivil war' between Republicans and Democrats.

    At the UN COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, it's imperative that international leaders go beyond discussions of future emission reductions. It's time to emphasize the importance of climate restoration as part of the path to net-zero that works for allcountries across the globe. Reducing our emissions remains critically important, but deploying clean energy and updating infrastructure will not in itself solve all the issues we see with climate change. In fact, current mitigation and adaptation activities, although essential, do not typically consider the legacy carbon currently in the atmosphere. Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) estimate that greenhouse gas concentrations in our atmosphere are at the highest levels in 800,000 years. We now know that the climate has changed due to human impact and will continue to do so with the emissions already in our atmosphere. In light of this, we must continue to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases we release into our atmosphere while simultaneously addressing the trillion tons of CO2 that we have already emitted. Climate restoration, the movement to remove the excess...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Shane Beamer had a strong, concise message to his resurgent South Carolina players this week: Stop thinking about a bowl game. That’s nearly impossible after the Gamecocks moved to the edge of postseason eligibility with their 40-17 stunner over Florida. Beamer’s program, picked for next-to-last in the SEC East, has a chance to move into the top half of the division when it heads to Missouri (4-5, 1-4 Southeastern Conference) on Saturday. Beamer believes, though, it’s not the time to contemplate that critical sixth victory — and first bowl appearance since 2018. Beamer is looking to become the third straight coach, after Steve Spurrier and Will Muschamp, to make a bowl in his debut season at South Carolina (5-4, 2-4). He addressed the topic with his players Tuesday, telling them bluntly, “Every time you think about being bowl eligible, stop.” Putting the focus on win No. 6, Beamer explained, means there’s a cap on what the Gamecocks can achieve this season. There’s two home games left once they finish at Missouri, against No. 16 Auburn on...
    Getty Former Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso. When Alex Caruso came onto the scene with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2017, he quickly became a fan favorite due to his appearance and penchant for flashy dunks. However, it quickly became apparent that he could actually play and was much more than a novelty. He ended up becoming a top player for the Lakers and an important piece during 2020’s championship run. Caruso hit free agency in the offseason and it didn’t appear like there was any chance Los Angeles was going to let him go. He had a great relationship with LeBron James and the two played extremely well together. Once free agency started, the Lakers made a flurry of moves but didn’t end up bringing back Caruso. He signed a four-year deal worth $37 million with the Chicago Bulls and has already become a massive fan favorite for their fan base. Caruso goes viral quite often for his impressive defensive plays, which the Lakers need a lot of defensive help right. Current and former executives around...

Jeanne Phillips  My fiance despises my father (he’s witnessed the damage my dad has done to me), but I forgave Dad and feel neutral about his presence.

    A retired NFL punter, Pat McAfee has launched a successful second career in the media because of his quick-wit and brash personality, not for his ability to be an unbiased journalist who asks the hard hitting questions. Following McAfee’s bombshell interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the SirsiuXM Radio host noted he received A LOT of negative feedback regarding his line of questioning. “I do apologize for potentially not hammering home the science and stats like I should have – I guess a lot of people are saying. But also, there’s NO WAY you were thinking that’s what I was gonna do,” McAfee said Monday. For the most part, McAfee let Rodgers dig his own hole Friday afternoon. The quarterback continued down a list of reckless claims while explaining his reasons for not trusting Covid vaccines.

    Matt Corral. Mandatory Credit: Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports Will the Minnesota Vikings decide to move on from Kirk Cousins? Here are three possible replacements for the longtime NFL quarterback. Minnesota Vikings fans continue to grow frustrated with the way quarterback Kirk Cousins plays. While Cousins is a talented quarterback who has proven he can help a team win, he’s among some of the older quarterbacks in the league at 33-years-old and he’s got a pretty hefty salary. At the moment, Cousins is only on contract through the 2022 season, but he’ll make an absurd amount of money that year. So, what do the Vikings do? Will they continue to stick with a quarterback who has been a part of some rough seasons and underachieving teams, or will Minnesota move on and find a new quarterback to help usher in a new era? If the Vikings do want to start over, here are three quarterbacks to consider.Minnesota Vikings: 3 possible replacements for Kirk Cousins3.

It’s not easy because you have to work every day and you have to breathe a winning mentality every day. “You don’t...
    Paul McCartney has opened up about his complicated relationship with John Lennon following the Beatles’ bitter split. The group parted ways in the spring of 1970. While they quietly agreed to go their separate ways the prior fall, things went downhill after the news went public that April. "When we broke up and everyone was now flailing around, John turned nasty," the 79-year-old recalled in his new book, "The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present," as quoted by People magazine on Thursday. "I don’t really understand why," the singer admitted. "Maybe because we grew up in Liverpool, where it was always good to get in the first punch of a fight."

    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more Horses are beautiful, powerful, and majestic creatures. And sadly, they’re often subjected to abuse at the hands of humans. The racing industry exploits horses for the sole purpose of “entertainment,” and others are subjected to a life of work involving pulling carriages through city streets or being used as a source of entertainment at children’s birthday parties. Even wild horses are exploited by being rounded up and forced into holding facilities where they’re often sold for slaughter. Horses also fall victim to unintentional abuse when people purchase or adopt them without fully understanding the amount of time and expenses involved in caring for them. When horses are no longer of use or someone can no longer afford their care, they’re often sent to auction where they can be purchased for further use or shipped off for slaughter. Some might end up in loving homes or placed with a sanctuary, but for the majority of these highly intelligent and emotional creatures, that isn’t the case. With a staggering number of horses being...
    A SURGEON and TikTok star has revealed a surprising connection between the size of your nose and penis. Dr. Anthony Youn, a plastic surgeon and popular YouTuber, shares his experience and knowledge with his 7.1 million TikTok followers. 3Dr. Anthony Yuon talked about a new study that revealed the connection between penis and nose sizesCredit: Jam Press 3He said the bigger the nose, the bigger the penisCredit: Jam Press In one of his recent clips, Dr. Anthony told his followers that there is a significant correlation between the two measurements. He went on to explain that a study found that those with larger noses will have an average penile length of 5.3 inches, whilst those with shorter noses will sit at around 4.1 inches. The study also concluded that penile length may not be determined by age, height, or bodyweight  - but actually before birth as a result. In a bid to help comfort those who may now be feeling self-conscious of their genitals, he confirmed that this means Marvel’s 'The Hulk' will in fact have a ‘tiny wee wee’ whereas 'Butt-Head' from the comedy television show,...
                      by Kendall Tietz  State members of the National School Boards Association slammed the organization following its letter addressed to President Joe Biden’s administration that compared parental concern at school board meetings to actions of “domestic terrorists,” according to emails obtained by Parents Defending Education through a public records request. Emails between Delaware, Florida and Ohio school board officials and National School Boards Association (NSBA) leadership showed the discontent its state members had with how the national organization handled the letter and the claims it made. The NSBA sent a letter on Sept. 29 that asked President Joe Biden’s administration to use federal legislation, such as the PATRIOT Act, to stop threats and violence in public schools toward school board members over actions that could be “the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.” On Oct. 10, Devin Sheehan, a regional director for the NSBA, sent a letter to executive directors to “compile any concerns, thoughts or recommendations” from its northeast region state board associations, according to the emails.

    During CNN’s election coverage on Tuesday, CNN Senior Political Commentator and former Obama adviser David Axelrod stated that if he was in the White House or Democratic leadership in Congress, he’d be concerned about Democrats in swing districts re-considering their votes on the reconciliation bill. Axelrod said, “[O]ne of the questions I have is, if you’re Democrat sitting on Capitol Hill, and you’re from one of these swing districts in suburban areas, are you re-thinking tonight your vote on this reconciliation package? Are you thinking, maybe it’s best we shouldn’t do it? If I were sitting in the White House, if I were sitting in the leadership of the — in the Democratic councils in the Congress, I’d be worried about that. I’d be trying to firm these people up. Because there’s going to be — I just know how this goes. I have experienced it. I know when things go badly, people begin to think of themselves.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
