    UFC president Dana White is doing much better after testing positive for COVID-19. The sports mogul recently revealed that his entire family tested positive for the virus, but he’s now in the clear. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Not only is he in the clear, but he gave Joe Rogan a shoutout for his advice.

    Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Pro-Trump conspiracy theorist Lin Wood posted a screenshot on the messaging platform Telegram purporting to be a 2014 email exchange between Hunter Biden and Tucker Carlson. Posted by Wood on Thursday, the alleged email, whose authenticity has not been verified, appears to show Carlson thanking Biden for writing a letter of recommendation to Georgetown University for his son. “Hunter! I can’t thank you enough for writing that letter to Georgetown on Buckley’s behalf. So nice of you. I know it’ll help,” read the screenshot of the purported November 12, 2014 Carlson email to Biden. “Hope you’re great and we can all get dinner soon.” According to the screenshot (which Mediaite is not linking to because it may display active email addresses for Biden and Carlson), Biden is said to have replied, “Hey buddy- I need Buckley’s CV if you have one handy- Thanks[.]” “Of course,” came the response. “Getting on a plane now but I’ll ask Susie to send it right away. Thanks again. It’s really nice of you to do this.” Hunter Biden, the controversial son...
    A new Hunter Biden book excerpt released on Monday details an alleged secret meeting between now-President Joe Biden and his only living son's business partner that led to a now-infamous 'deal' in which the president and his family were supposed to get equity in a Chinese energy firm.  Biden reportedly thanked Tony Bobulinski, who was tasked with setting up the family's joint venture with Chinese firm CEFC, for his 'service' and for 'helping my son.' The meeting lasted 45 minutes in May 2017. Less than two weeks later, an email sent to Hunter Biden outlined a 'provisional agreement' that included 10 percent equity in the energy company for 'the big guy' - later identified as Joe Biden.  Hunter and Biden's younger brother Jack Biden were also present at the face-to-face, which reportedly took place in the lobby bar of Los Angeles' Beverly Hilton Hotel.  'The Bidens had chosen a discreet couch behind a thick marble column where they could see everyone who walked in the front entrance,' writes Miranda Devine, author of the forthcoming book Laptop From Hell: Hunter Biden,...
    SWITZERLAND boss Murat Yakin has sent the Northern Ireland national team 20lbs of chocolate as a thank-you for helping them to reach the World Cup.

    Getty Jordan Poyer celebrates after an interception against the New York Jets. A little more than a week before Thanksgiving, Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer is giving thanks for the blessings given to the Bills secondary by the New York Jets quarterback. After a red hot start to his tenure as the Jets starter that included 405 yards passing against the Cincinnati Bengals and a mid-week boast that he should have been picked first overall in his draft year — which would have put him ahead of Josh Allen — White came crashing back to earth on Sunday against the Bills. He was hounded by an aggressive pass rush and forced into four costly interceptions in the 45-17 loss. After the game, Poyer twisted the knife a bit while thanking White for the gifts given to the Bills secondary. The latest Bills news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Bills newsletter here!

Leidemar Pescador, right, take part in a flag folding ceremony during a Veterans Day celebration at Hellyer Park on Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2021, in San Jose, Calif. The inaugural event was put on by the Santa Clara County Office of Veterans Affairs. (Aric Crabb/Bay Area News Group) 
    No greater love has any man than this. So, from your friends at TheBlaze: Thank you — for everything. We love you back.
    Whenever Staff Sgt. Leidemar Pescador takes part in a Veterans Day ceremony, she feels butterflies in her stomach. “That’s because it means something,” said Pescador, a member of the honor guard from the 129th Rescue Wing of the California Air National Guard that posted the colors Wednesday at a celebration at Hellyer Park in San Jose. There, dozens of veterans — including many who survived the Vietnam War — came together for tacos, cake and conversation. “It’s an honor because they opened the path for us to be here,” she said. “Without their sacrifice and their willingness to serve, we wouldn’t have the freedom that we have.” Her feeling of gratitude is undoubtedly shared by the thousands of people expected at Veterans Day celebrations throughout the Bay Area on Thursday, from a ceremony and wreath toss at the USS Hornet museum in Alameda to the downtown parade in San Jose now in its 103rd year. After a tumultuous year with COVID-19 muting most celebrations last November, organizers are hoping that crowds come out in droves to show their appreciation. “It’s...

    THE fact news of Paul Pogba’s thigh injury while training with France did not make the headlines says it all. His absence for two months after this international break will not affect Manchester United’s form, one way or the other. In fact, they could be better off without him. 1It will not be bad business for Man Utd to let £89m Paul Pogba leave on a free next summerCredit: PA Pogba has been an unwanted sideshow that has too often dragged United down since the day he returned to the club in August 2016. The Red Devils are now happy to let his contract run out next summer when he can leave on a free — again — and the circus can move on to another town. They have grown fed up with Pogba. They just want him out. His appalling, 15-minute cameo in last month’s 5-0 humiliation by Liverpool was the final straw. Axed to the bench for the match, the 28-year-old midfielder came on at half-time with the score already 4-0. Within five minutes he  had lost possession...

It’s a euphemistic way of saying “f*** Joe Biden,” and it’s been chanted at sporting events around the country.

    “Thank You,” by Diana Ross (Decca Records/Universal Music Group) Diana Ross’ first album in 15 years cuts through our present cynicism and slices past the despair. “Thank You” is a warm hug of music, less a tightly constructed pop vehicle, than a mood. “It never rains forever,” Ross sings in one song. On another: “Turn it up/And give love a chance.” On a third she asks: “What if we could find a way/To laugh, love and pray?” “Thank You” is a twinkling, blissful and bubbly wave of optimism, like being invited to a champagne party on a puffy cloud. Our hostess is full of goodwill, her voice warm and welcoming. There’s no velvet rope. All are welcome. “No matter what the question/I know the answer/The answer’s always love,” she sing. The 13-track album finds Ross at the intersection of ‘70s disco, ’80s electronica, ’90s house and the production savvy of the 2020s. There are two speeds — twinkling ballads and bootie-shakers. But don’t get the wrong idea about the up-tempo ones. There’s nothing raunchy here. The song “Let’s Do...
    The music landscape in the last year has been dominated by the depressing loss of the sorts of true legends whose ilk we will never see again. After the deaths of Rolling Stones great Charlie Watts, Dame Vera Lynn and The Supremes founding member Mary Wilson, it feels we are waving goodbye all too often to the superstars behind the music which shaped our lives. That's why today's release of the first ABBA album in four decades – one they've promised will be their last ever collection of new music – feels somewhat miraculous. Voyage is more than just a bunch of new songs by the best pop group in history, it's hands down the greatest and most unexpected music comeback of all time. For my entire lifetime, my favourite band – Björn, 76, Agnetha, 71, Benny, 74, and Frida, 75 – had vowed they would never reunite. DAN WOOTTON: I'm pictured with Björn Ulvaeus who took me for breakfast for my birthday while I was in Stockholm two and half years ago And today, as ABBA mania takes over...
    Volunteers showed up at the D.C. Armory to help prepare care packages for area veterans. (WTOP/Luke Lukert) With Veterans Day next week, a nonprofit spent three days in the D.C. Armory assembling care packages for area veterans. They started Tuesday and over the course of several days, volunteers with Operation Gratitude made over 4,500 care packages that will be distributed to local veteran organizations like the Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Foreign Legion. The CEO and President of Operation Gratitude, retired Air Force Maj. Gen. James Johnson, told WTOP, “We’ve had everyday Americans who’ve shown up here to volunteer.” In those packages, veterans will find snacks, such as fruit roll-ups, coffee and even handmade items from volunteers. “I drew most of the pictures,” said 9-year-old Emerson from Ashburn, Virginia. “I drew some men and women in their uniform and I drew some airplanes and helicopters that they would use.” Emerson said she volunteered Thursday with her family because her father is in the Army. “When I’ve received those care packages, and you see the pictures that are on them....

    Citi will require all 65,000 of its US staff to be vaccinated by January and is giving any worker that provides proof of vaccination by December 8 a $200 'thank you' bonus.   The announcement came on Thursday in a LinkedIn post by the head of HR. Officials from the bank later confirmed it was part of a move to get everyone back into the office.  Citi had been one of the more relaxed Wall Street firms in its approach to at-home working, citing families and childcare as one of the reasons why it was harder for people to go back.  Now, it seems the bank is instructing everyone to return to the office next year, and that the vaccine mandate is folded into it.  In August, HR boss Sarah Wechter announced that all New York office employees must be vaccinated, and that some employees in other office locations would also have to be vaccinated.  HR boss Sarah Wechter announced the mandate in a LinkedIn post on Thursday  Citi CEO Jane Fraser has not yet commented on the decision  The new...

    Graeme Jennings/Getty Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.On Tuesday, the Senate approved four new US ambassadors, something that typically would not pass for breaking news in Washington, DC. But before this week, only 2 of Joe Biden’s 69 ambassador picks had been confirmed, making his diplomatic corps substantially smaller than his predecessors’ at this point in their first term.  Few ambassador nominations are controversial, and the Senate can usually vote them through easily. But this year, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has held up the nominees over a disagreement with Biden’s handling of a Russian gas pipeline in Europe. Instead of permitting senators to vote quickly, which requires unanimous approval, Cruz has made it so each pick requires hours of debate, stopping the Senate from doing other business.  “I’ve made clear to every State Department official, to every State Department nominee, that I will place holds on these nominees unless and until the Biden administration follows the law and stops this pipeline,” he said in August on the Senate...
    Sen. Tom Cotton called on Attorney General Merrick Garland to “resign in disgrace” during a contentious Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday. Cotton questioned Garland over an Oct. 4 memo that targeted parents protesting at school board meetings. “Thank God you are not on the Supreme Court,” Cotton told the attorney general. Sen. Tom Cotton called on Attorney General Merrick Garland to “resign in disgrace” during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday. “This testimony, this directive, this performance, is shameful. Thank God you are not on the Supreme Court. You should resign in disgrace, Judge,” Cotton said during the hearing, which featured Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin comparing concerned parents to the Jan. 6 rioters. Cotton questioned Garland about his Oct. 4 memo, which followed a Sept. 29 letter from the National School Boards Association (NSBA) to President Joe Biden asking for federal intervention, leading off by asking the attorney general about the “outrageous directive siccing the feds on parents at school boards across America.” Garland was also asked if he had consulted with FBI leadership and whether objections...
    Sen. Tom Cotton tore into Attorney General Merrick Garland during testimony before the  Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, telling him to 'resign in disgrace.' 'Thank God you are not on the Supreme Court,' the Arkansas Republican said, bringing up the touchy subject of Garland's failed confirmation to the high court in 2016. President Obama appointed him and then-Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked his confirmation because it was an election year.  'You should resign in disgrace,' Cotton told Garland.  The senator was questioning Garland over a directive the Justice Department issued earlier this month promising more law enforcement resources for schools amid a rise in tensions and threats at school board meetings over matters like critical race theory, coronavirus precautions and transgender bathroom policies.  Cotton asked about a Loudon County father who was dragged out of a school board meeting and arrested as he tried to tell the room his 15-year-old daughter had been raped by a boy dressed in a skirt at Stone Bridge High School in the girls' bathroom.  Sen. Tom Cotton questioned AG Merrick Garland over a DOJ memo...
    Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., tore into Attorney General Merrick Garland during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday, chastising him for his memo to Justice Department employees about intervening in violence, threats and intimidation targeting school board officials. Cotton noted that Garland has cited news reports – in addition to a letter from the National School Boards Association – as inspiring his memo. The Arkansas Republican then brought up one of the more high-profile instances of a parent being arrested for conduct at a school board meeting, where Scott Smith was charged with disorderly conduct after demanding answers regarding how his daughter was allegedly sexually assaulted in a girls' bathroom at school by a boy who had reportedly been wearing women's clothing. GARLAND REFUSES TO BACK AWAY FROM DOJ MEMO AFTER SCHOOL BOARD APOLOGY While Garland stopped short of apologizing to the Smith family, he expressed sympathy for their situation and said that "anyone whose child is raped … is certainly entitled and protected by the First Amendment to protest to their school board about that." next Image...

He should resign in disgrace. pic.twitter.com/oyRg9Sc2NV— Tom Cotton (@SenTomCotton) October 27, 2021 The remark was a swipe at Garland, who was nominated to serve on the Supreme Court by then-President Barack Obama in 2016. At the time, Sen. Mitch McConnell, who was then the majority leader, declined to confirm him, arguing that such a confirmation should not take place in an election year. Neil Gorsuch was later nominated by former President Donald Trump and confirmed to the Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. In 2020, Justice Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed just days before the election while McConnell was still the majority leader.

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: A woman is dating a man and they are out to dinner with his family (14 people). A birthday cake (brought in from outside) is served. She doesn’t want the cake and orders sorbet for dessert instead. Was that rude of her? GENTLE READER: Yes. But before you subject Miss Manners to all of the obvious and angry objections (she was on a diet, vegan, gluten-free, frosting-averse, etc., etc.), she is not saying that the cake must then actually be consumed. Gratitude and the idea of enjoying the cake is all that is needed. The woman in question could simply have been too busy enjoying the company to get the chance to eat her serving of cake. But declaring outright that she wants something else is hurtful to the people who attempted to please everyone — however unsuccessful the effort may have been.

    Tom Brady has a weekly show on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio channel, co-hosted by veteran sportscaster Jim Gray. Predictably, the company would like the Mad Dog himself, Christopher Russo, to promote the new show that sits on the channel aptly named after him. But Russo doesn’t just give in to company requests without making demands of his own. “They’ve been begging me to promote it…when Tom sends me a text saying, ‘Chris it’s great to be on the channel, great to be part of it’ as everybody else does…when I get that (from Brady) then I will promote that show like you wouldn’t believe.” Russo claims everybody who joined his channel in the last 13 years sends him a thank you note, even former NFL punter and current Mad Dog Radio star Pat McAfee. Russo is a legend in the world of sports media, but if we’re gauging stardom, it’s the radio host who should be thanking the future Hall-of-Fame quarterback. Brady is not a 22-year-old fresh out of a college with a broadcast journalism degree, desperate to find...
    When Los Angeles Dodgers Spanish-language broadcaster Jaime Jarrín announced this week that he would retire in 2022 after a 64-year career, the first thing Jose de Jesus Ortiz did was look through his phone. The 49-year-old is the founder and editor-in-chief of Our Esquina, a website that tells stories about Latinos and sports. Ortiz, a longtime baseball writer, said his publication “wouldn’t exist without Don Jaime. It’s not hyperbole.” Jarrín, you see, has been there at every part of Ortiz’s career. He was the voice narrating the Dodgers’ magical 1981 Fernandomania year, when Ortiz’s family was the only Mexican household on their block in Lynwood. Jarrín was there with a “Welcome, ¿como estás? ¿Como te llamas? [How are you? What’s your name?]” when Ortiz stepped into Dodger Stadium’s press box for the first time in 1994 as an intern with the Long Beach Press-Telegram. As Ortiz’s career took off, and he bounced around from Florida to New York, Houston to St. Louis, Jarrín always made time to meet Ortiz for lunch, or catch up with a pregame chat. So when...
    A New York resident handwrote more than 4,000 thank-you notes to New York Police Department officers and said she plans to write notes to all 36,000 officers on the force. Police officers need a positive message to let them know the people of the city care about them, said New Yorker Coretta James. "As a civilian, I see how tough a job these officers have, and I do this to let them know they have support out there," James said, "that not everybody is against you." OFFICER WHO SHOT ASHLI BABBITT SAYS HE WAS 'PREPARED TO DO THE SAME THING' TO PROTECT TRUMP James tries to write at least 10 cards a day, she said. "I try to write a certain amount when I go to a precinct, and the cards are pre-written. [On] the outside of the card, I put the ranks: lieutenant, sergeant, detective," she told Fox News. "When I get there, that's when I get the names, and I write the names on the card before I give it to an...
    New York City resident Coretta James has handwritten over 4,000 thank-you notes to NYPD officers and does not plan to stop until she has written notes to all 36,000 officers in the city.  James said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday that the officers need an uplifting message and for people to let them know that "not everybody is against you." SEN. TIM SCOTT: THE LEFT IS 'PUTTING POLITICS OVER PEOPLE' REGARDING POLICE REFORM The notes come at a time where police retirements are spiking amid the "defund the police" movement, coinciding with low morale of officers throughout the country. James said officers are not used to having people thank them for the job they're doing. In her notes to the officers, she thanks them for their service to the city and that "they're somebody's, somebody" because they have families too.  She also reminds them that they're a special person because every day, officers put their life on the line.  "That's somebody's husband, wife, somebody's father or mother," she told host Ainsley Earhardt.

    Scouting Report: This ergonomic kneeling chair may look a little funky, but it has made my desk job a lot less of a chore. As a writer, I spend most of the day sitting at my desk – that is, when I'm not rifling through my kitchen cabinets looking for a snack. But all of that sitting means having a good chair is just as important as having a good computer to get my job done. Over the years, I've tried too many different chairs to count. But after hours of sitting hunched over my computer screen, they've all wreaked havoc on my shoulders and lower back. Unless you are constantly conscious of your posture, sitting up straight does not come naturally to most of us. And according to the Cleveland Clinic, sitting day in and day out in front of our screens with poor posture can have some pretty painful long-term effects on the body, including back and shoulder pain, arthritis, and joint damage. Although a standing desk is a good option to help reduce some of the strain...
    The availability of ready meals and takeaways have made many of us less creative with our cooking, but these images prove meal times don't have to be boring. Bored Panda rounded up a selection of retro recipes from around the world that have gone viral because of their unusual combination of ingredients and overall appearance, like these prawn stuffed apples! Click through to see what's for dinner... A new tradition! Hellmann's Mayonnaise ran adverts throughout the 1960s which advised people to pair their sauce with cranberry 'candle' salad as a holiday meal. One recipe recommended mixing pasta with oil, and salt and sour cream for a very unusual take on a macaroni dish. Another dated cook book recommended making a banana pineapple salad,  but it's unclear why they didn't recommend slicing the banana. Chop, chop! A home cook carefully organized a range of meat to create the appearance of a pig when serving. One recipe card by Weight Watchers in the 1970s suggested indulging in a crown roast of frankfurters.

    Getty Images Taylor Lewan reacts after a penalty against him in the 2019 season. You don’t see this every day. After the Arizona Cardinals annihilated the Tennessee Titans in the 2021 season opener, a Titans player went to social media right after the 38-13 defeat and admitted something of note. Left tackle Taylor Lewan was getting destroyed by edge rusher Chandler Jones, who partook in a five-sack, two forced fumble performance. Lewan told the masses on Twitter, “Got my ass kicked today, no way around that,” Lewan wrote. “I let the team and the fans down. Thank you @chanjones55 for exposing me.

    IMAGINE growing up unable to understand the people around you, and having no way of communicating except through gestures. This was the world Philip Bridge faced as a child after being born with a genetic disorder called Waardenburg syndrome, which left him profoundly Deaf. 3 Advocate: a genetic disorder left Philip Bridge profoundly Deaf “My family didn’t know sign language, so they’d be talking to each other and I couldn’t join in,” Philip says. “Mum did her best to talk to me, but it was hard for us to understand each other. I wanted to get involved but felt left out. “I ended up playing on my own a lot – I was frustrated, and really struggled. I went to a mainstream school where making friends for me was difficult, so I’d just play football with the kid next door.” Philip, now 42, was 16 when he started to learn British Sign Language, which is when he began to blossom. “I was learning sign language at Bolton College when a friend recommended that I join the Bolton Deaf Society (BDS),”...
    NORTH CENTER — Lane Tech College Prep women graduates gathered outside their old high school this week to unveil a plaque honoring the first 386 female students admitted 50 years ago. Chicago Public Schools allowed the first cohort of girls into Lane Tech in September 1971, integrating the school after 60 years of teaching boys. Met by protests, micro aggressions and outright misogyny, the girls joined more than 5,000 boys at 2501 W. Addison St. The plaque will be installed at the school’s main entrance facing Western Avenue. “These resilient young women proved that academic excellence has no gender boundaries, and established their rightful place in the school of champions,” it reads.  Debra Bailey Williams, class of 1975, said the moment was “monumental.” “But I also think that it will be good to do some interrogation of and reflection on what has changed what hasn’t changed yet,” Williams said. “Having the courage to talk about some of those things that may not be easy.” Credit: Colin Boyle/Block Club ChicagoA plaque is presented during an event outside the Lane Tech...
