    Kyler Murray could crash the party should he return full strength after an ankle injury that’s kept him out a month, but as of now, the NFC representative in the Super Bowl could be determined by a rematch between Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. Brady survived three interceptions a year ago in Green Bay as the Buccaneers beat the Packers 31-26, winning the right to face (and beat) the Kansas City Chiefs in a Super Bowl LV. Rodgers was 33 of 48 for 346 yards but couldn’t overcome a 28-10 deficit early in the third quarter, getting Green Bay as close as 28-23. In terms of conference seedings, here are the quarterbacks aligned with postseason berths heading into Week 13. NFC: Murray (Arizona), Rodgers (Green Bay), Brady (Tampa Bay), Dak Prescott (Dallas), Matthew Stafford (LA Rams), Jimmy Garoppolo (49ers), Taylor Heineke (Washington). AFC: Lamar Jackson (Baltimore), Mac Jones (New England), Ryan Tannehill (Tennessee), Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City), Josh Allen (Buffalo), Justin Herbert (LA Chargers). Here’s how I rank them individually, as well as those outside the...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden had hoped to return from the Thanksgiving holiday bearing good news about his moves to get the economy back on track, his administration's effort to fix the supply chain crisis and hopes for a holiday season where Americans could gather safely with families and friends.Instead, the President is stuck again in an uncomfortably familiar place: a zone of uncertainty. Elected by voters who believed he could create a new era of stability, Biden is facing volatile markets, Americans anxious about the health of their families and a vacuum of information about how well the current vaccines will protect against the new coronavirus variant known as Omicron -- placing his administration in a "wait and see" mode that could last for at least a week, if not several more.About the only thing Biden can count on in this politically precarious moment is that he is still unlikely to get any help from Republicans in his effort to carve a path out of the pandemic by encouraging people to face down the new threat by getting vaccinated and getting...
    Getty Ex-New York Jets quarterback Brett Favre being introduced after his trade from the Green Bay Packers. Just when you think you have seen everything on the New York Jets quarterback carousel in 2021, something new happens. That was once again the case this week. After watching two quarterbacks go down to COVID in Joe Flacco and Mike White, the Jets had to make a move. They chose to promote veteran Josh Johnson to be the primary backup on Sunday versus the Houston Texans. All of that coincided with rookie No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson being cleared to return after missing the last four games. Although with only two readily available quarterbacks on the roster, it was time to add another arm to the bullpen. ALL the latest Jets news straight to your inbox!

    Getty The Bears placed DB Duke Shelley on the injured reserve list heading into week 12. The Chicago Bears are making roster moves heading into their Week 12 Thanksgiving showdown against NFC North rivals the Detroit Lions. The Bears signed kicker Brian Johnson to the practice squad for a second stint after he was waived by the New Orleans Saints on November 20. Johnson had spent the summer, preseason and the first part of his 2021 campaign with Chicago before getting poached off the practice squad by the Saints. The Bears also placed defensive back Duke Shelley on injured reserve with a hamstring issue, and they signed defensive tackle Margus Hunt to the active roster.

    The Chicago Cubs are reshaping their outfield this offseason, and traded for Cleveland Guardians outfielder Harold Ramirez. Ramirez was more of a reserve outfielder for Cleveland last season, but he did appear in 99 games last season. The 27-year-old hit .268 (91-for-339) with 21 doubles, one triple, seven home runs and 41 RBI. Those numbers are solid enough to warrant a spring training chance on the north side of Chicago.

    It was a strange week for the NFL in terms of quarterback play. Tom Brady started to look his age coming off a bye. Russell Wilson looked nothing like himself coming off finger surgery on his throwing hand. Two bad weeks in a row for Derek Carr. Lamar Jackson? Don’t ask. It wasn’t all bad. Aaron Rodgers was good enough to win, Dak Prescott rebounded after a poor game last week against Denver and the 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo, should he remain healthy, looks capable of holding off No. 3 overall draft pick Trey Lance. Oh, and all that concern about Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs? Never mind. How the quarterbacks rank going into Week 11: 1.

    Rev. Edward Pinkney delivers bottled water to Benton Harbor residents as part of his ongoing effort,Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2021. (E. Jason Wambsgans/Chicago Tribune)  Abandoned by industry. Impoverished after white flight. Saddled with crumbling infrastructure, struggling schools and little, if any, money to fix the problems. For decades this low-income, majority Black community — less than two hours from Chicago on the southeastern shore of Lake Michigan — has been ravaged by a litany of woes shared with many other once-thriving American cities. Now the water isn’t safe to drink either. A top state official urged Benton Harbor residents last month to drink and cook with bottled water, three years after testing required under a then-new Michigan law revealed high levels of brain-damaging lead in tap water. The alarming findings are another example of hidden dangers in scores of U.S. cities that during the last century installed lead pipes known as service lines to deliver drinking water into homes. Chicago is the epicenter of the problem — there are 400,000 lead service lines throughout the city, more than anywhere else in the nation —...

    Share this: The average time for U.S. immigration cases to be resolved is nearly four years. But that’s not the mandate in Francisco Prieto’s courtroom. The New York judge must attempt to rule within 300 days on dozens of cases he hears daily from families that just entered the country. The migrants are being sent to the front of the line with the idea that others will be less likely to migrate knowing a backlog of more than 1.4 million cases will no longer buy them a few years in the United States even if they lose. Nearly six months ago, the Biden administration established a “dedicated docket” for families, many seeking asylum, in Prieto’s city and 10 others, including Boston, San Francisco, Miami and El Paso, Texas. It is a modest step aimed at bringing order to the southern border, where authorities this year have faced unusually high numbers of migrant arrivals, including nearly 15,000, mostly Haitians, who camped under a bridge in the small border town of Del Rio, Texas, in September.
    NEW YORK (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The average time for U.S. immigration cases to be resolved is nearly four years. But that’s not the mandate in one judge’s courtroom. New York Judge Francisco Prieto must attempt to rule within 300 days on dozens of cases he hears daily from families that just entered the country.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Friday is tapping former Food and Drug Administration commissioner Robert Califf to again lead the powerful regulatory agency, according to a person familiar with the decision. Califf’s nomination comes after months of the concern that the agency near the center of the government’s COVID-19 response has lacked a permanent leader. More than a half-dozen names were floated for the job before the White House settled on Califf. Biden is to make the formal announcement later Friday, said the person familiar, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to preview the announcement. A cardiologist and clinical trial specialist, Califf served as FDA commissioner for the last 11 months of President Barack Obama’s second term. Before that, he spent one year as the agency’s No. 2 official after more than 35 years as a researcher at Duke University, where he helped design studies for many of the world’s biggest drugmakers.

    Natalie Symons Natalie Symons has shifted gears to another promising career trajectory. The St. Petersburg-based writer/actor published her first novel, “Lies in Bone,” this year and has experienced an auspicious launch of her first book tour, which will make a stop at Tombolo Books on Nov. 15. Set initially in the late-1970s and ‘80s, the expansive mystery weaves seamlessly in and out of narratives about a teenage Springsteen fan who confronts family dysfunction, abandonment, poverty and the cold case murder of her father’s younger brother 20 years ago.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Billy Crystal is not ready to say goodbye to “Mr. Saturday Night.” The comic icon has turned his comedy film into a Broadway-bound musical and hopes to open it next year with him reprising his film role as Buddy Young Jr., a bitter, old insult comic chasing a last laugh. “There’s something about this guy and that world that I love,” Crystal tells The Associated Press. “I think that we’ve brought this story and this character to a better place than I could have imagined even.” Crystal has written the stage adaptation with his film’s co-writers — Lowell Ganz and Marc “Babaloo” Mandel — and married it to music by Jason Robert Brown and lyrics by Amanda Green. John Rando will direct. “What the music has done to elevate the story and to propel the story and bring out dynamics in the characters is quite amazing to me,” Crystal says. “It’s something I couldn’t be more excited about, honestly.” He will star opposite Tony Award-winner Randy Graff, Chasten Harmon and David Paymer, who will recreate...
    CARACAS – The socialist regime of Venezuela has begun to implement its own version of a Chinese Coronavirus digital vaccine passport in the form of a new “stoplight” restriction system through one of its existing apps. The lack of information, improvisation, and the current state of the country following the collapse of the once-celebrated “Socialism of the 21st century” might just prevent its full deployment. The “Access Stoplight” system, which began its deployment in November 2021, seeks to control and limit access to public spaces for the unvaccinated and to those who have recently exhibited coronavirus symptoms. In its first phase, the system is intended to be used at restaurants, hotels, and commercial establishments such as gyms. Citizen access is determined through a “stoplight” icon based on the eponymous traffic signaling device: a “red light” for those with coronavirus symptoms, a “yellow light” for the unvaccinated but healthy, or a “green light” for vaccinated citizens. The socialist regime is using its existing veQR Android app to implement the system. The veQR app works as a companion application to the...
    SANTA CLARA — It shouldn’t be surprising that the 49ers are trailing at halftime on their home field, where they haven’t won since Oct. 18, 2020. It’s stunning, however, how they’ve fallen behind 17-7 and against an Arizona Cardinals team missing Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Green and J.J. Watt. The 49ers defense has been doomed by missed tackles, poor pass coverage and, most galling, penalties on Arik Armstead and Josh Norman, the latter of which got the veteran cornerback benched. The 49ers offense, meanwhile, saw George Kittle and Brandon Aiyuk each fumble after 18- and 22-yard receptions, respectively. Here is a more detailed recap of the (expletive) show by the home team: What kind of spark has George Kittle brought? Well, Kittle’s first touchdown catch of the season came with 16 seconds until halftime, and it came after Jimmy Garoppolo motioned him to a spot in the end zone for a 6-yard completion. Kittle’s last touchdown came the last time the 49ers won at home – that October 2020 game against the...
    Jamie Chung Shares First Photo of Both of Her Newborn Twins Meeting Their Grandparents Court Halts U.S. Mandate; Europe Hit by New Wave: Virus Update © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame and Navy picked up Saturday exactly where they left off in 2019, the first year off in the series dating back to 1927 not changing the dynamics of the game at all. The No. 10 Irish slogged to a convincing win against the Midshipmen, 34-6, the game never in doubt or particularly riveting. The rare moment that genuinely elicited excitement from the crowd, not to mention essentially decided the game, came as the result of a Navy safety woefully mistiming his read on a pass to Kevin Austin, springing the Notre Dame senior receiver for a 70-yard touchdown and a 17-3 lead just before halftime. Austin finished with six catches for 139 yards, the preferred target of quarterback Jack Coan as Coan finished with an efficient 269 yards on 23-of-29 passing. Junior running...
    HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — A 9-foot-tall (2.7-meter-tall) video game joystick made of wood, rubber and steel has made it into the Guinness World Records 2022 as the largest. Dartmouth College professor Mary Flanagan created the giant controller — nearly 14 times the size of an original classic Atari controller — in 2006 to celebrate her childhood experience of “maniacally” playing Atari 2600 video games. She also wanted to see what it would be like when a single-player experience becomes collaborative: It takes at least two people to operate the joystick and push the button to play classic Atari games such as “Centipede” and “Breakout.” “To have this common pop culture artifact just erupt in the middle of a space and allow people to play something familiar, yet not familiar, was exciting,” said Flanagan, an artist who is chair of Dartmouth’s Film and Media Studies and the Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Professor in Digital Humanities. The joystick, which toured Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States, is now part of the permanent collection of ZKM Center for Art and Media...
    Olivia and Liam are still the highest ranking baby names in the U.S. For the second year in a row, the names are the most popular for girls and boys – leading BabyCenter's Top 100 Baby Names list. The parenting resource site recently released its 2021 list, which showed new and existing trends from year’s past. Remaining names on the top 10 are familiar. For girls, the name Charlotte moved up two spots from number 8 to number 6, while Amelia jumped from number 5 to number 3. "Eight of the names on the top-10 girls' list end in the "ah" sound -- a trend that likely won't change any time soon," BabyCenter writes on its website.  Boy names were less traditional with two new names entering the top 10. Levi rose from number 16 to number 6, and Asher went from number 22 all the way up to number 9. Oliver and Elijah traded the number 3 and 4 spots, while Mateo and Logan left the top 10 altogether.

    Getty Wideout Jon'Vea Johnson was released by the Chicago Bears One day after releasing him from their 53-man roster, the Chicago Bears re-signed rookie linebacker Sam Kamara to the practice squad, the team announced on November 4. In a corresponding roster move, Chicago cut wide receiver Jon’Vea Johnson from the PS. Kamara was one of the original members of the team’s 16-player practice squad at the start of the season, and he was elevated to the active roster in mid-October.

    Federal authorities arrested a researcher who contributed information on possible links between Donald Trump and Russia for former British spy Christopher Steele's salacious "dossier," according to a report by The New York Times. "The arrest of the analyst, Igor Danchenko, is part of the special counsel inquiry led by John H. Durham, who was appointed by the Trump administration to scrutinize the Russia investigation for any wrongdoing," the newspaper reported, citing "people familiar with the matter." Danchenko made a name for himself by revealing there were indications Vladimir Putin's dissertation contained plagiarized sections. "Danchenko, was the primary researcher of the so-called Steele dossier, a compendium of rumors and unproven assertions suggesting that Mr. Trump and his 2016 campaign were compromised by and conspiring with Russian intelligence officials in Moscow's covert operation to help him defeat Hillary Clinton.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A Russian analyst who helped provide information for a dossier of research used during the Trump-Russia investigation has been arrested as part of an ongoing special counsel investigation, a person familiar with the matter said Thursday. The arrest of Igor Danchenko occurred Thursday and is part of special counsel John Durham’s probe into the origins of the Russia investigation, according to the person familiar with the matter, who was not authorized to discuss it by name and spoke on condition of anonymity. It was not immediately clear what charges Danchenko might face. The New York Times first reported the arrest. A spokesman for the Justice Department did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment, and a lawyer for Danchenko had no immediate comment. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Watching the game on TV, Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy helped stay engaged by jotting down notes as the plays unfolded. It was an unusual spot, one he hopes he’s never in again. “It was just a really, really weird situation,” Nagy said Monday. It was also an all-too-familiar result. The Bears are reeling with three straight losses after falling 33-22 to San Francisco in a game during which they were without their coach as well as their top pass rusher. Nagy, who is vaccinated, was away from the team all week after testing positive for COVID-19. Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor filled in for him. But besides missing their coach, the Bears had to get by without Khalil Mack. The three-time All-Pro linebacker was sidelined for the first time since 2018 because of a foot injury. And on top of that, safety Eddie Jackson exited after hurting his hamstring on the second play from scrimmage. Though rookie quarterback Justin Fields had probably his best all-around game, the Bears couldn’t get the stops they...
    Biggest box office stars since 1980 Why Do We Spend So Much Each Year on Holiday Shopping? How New Orleans built on experience to topple the Buccaneers for a third straight (regular-season) game. Plus, everything else from Week 8. P.J. Williams figured the moment he’d waited for the whole game just wasn’t coming. Having played the Tom Brady version of the Buccaneers more than any other team has—the Saints faced them twice in the regular season, then again in the playoffs last year—showed New Orleans a few things. And in those three games, one was that Tampa Bay had built in the sort of crossing routes that leveraged the legendary quarterback’s accuracy, and the open-field talent of the receivers around him to take the ball on the move and go. So the Saints had a robber coverage in for points of the game that allowed Williams to float, feign that he was dropping into the deeper part of the field and follow Brady’s eyes to the ball. Problem was, until the fourth quarter, the Buccaneers had adjusted to New...

The rookie has produced, so it will be interesting to see which receivers lose snaps when Sammy Watkins returns from his hamstring injury. The Ravens have not...
    The Houston Texans are set to trade running back Mark Ingram to the New Orleans Saints, reuniting him with his former team. Three-time Pro Bowler Mark Ingram is heading back to where it all began. Just seven games into his first season with the Texans, Houston has agreed to trade the running back to the Saints, according to Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport. Josina Anderson confirmed the report, adding that a source told her “conversations were happening here & there lately. [The Saints] never wanted to lose him the first time. A deal just couldn’t be struck.”Saints trade: Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara reunitedIngram has 294 yards rushing and one touchdown for the Texans this season. He’ll head back to New Orleans to provide depth behind Alvin Kamara. The back spent the last two seasons with the Ravens, grabbing a Pro Bowl nod in his first season in Baltimore with 1,018 yards and 10 touchdowns. He regained the form he’d shown at times during eight seasons playing for the Saints. New Orleans drafted him No. 28 overall in the 2011...
    HUIXTLA, Mexico (AP) — After three days of walking along a scorching highway in southern Mexico, a couple thousand migrants decided to rest here Tuesday, receive medical attention for badly blistered feet, wash clothing in the river and doze in any shade they could find. Nitza Maldonado and Omar Rodríguez sprawled on the sidewalk beside a local church with their 6-year-old son. The Honduran family had paid a smuggler $12,000 last year to get to the United States, but they were nabbed in Texas and deported. Due to the pandemic, they had lost their jobs there — she as an assistant at a law firm and he as a worker in a laundry. Back in Honduras, they faced unemployment and debts from their failed attempt to migrate so they decided to leave again on their own. Sleeping on the ground and sometimes eating only one meal a day, they decided the risks of rough handling or deportation by Mexican authorities were worth joining the large group effort to walk north. “You have to migrate because in our country...
    A majority of likely voters who are familiar with ever-popular chants of “Fuck Joe Biden” and “Let’s Go Brandon!” say they are “appropriate” ways to protest the Biden administration, a Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group survey released Tuesday found. Most likely voters are familiar with the chants that are largely taking place at sporting events, although 52.4 percent of Democrats, specifically, said they are not familiar with the chants. A solid majority of Republicans and independents are familiar. The survey asked respondents, “Do you believe chants like ‘F–k Joe Biden’ (or ‘Let’s Go Brandon’) are an appropriate way to protest the Biden Administration?” Among those who originally said they were familiar with the chants, 59 percent said both chants are appropriate. In this grouping, even a plurality of Democrats (46.2 percent) said “yes, both are” appropriate. Sixty-eight percent of Republicans and 55.7 percent of independents agree. However, across the board, 16.9 percent said “Let’s Go Brandon is appropriate,” but not “Fuck Joe Biden.” The survey asked the same question to everyone surveyed, even those who said they were unfamiliar with the...
    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Seeking a 26th term in the U.S. House, Alaska’s lone representative will face a challenger in 2022 with strong name recognition in the state. Nicholas Begich III has filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to challenge U.S. Rep. Don Young’s hold on the state’s sole seat in the U.S. House. Young is only the fourth person to hold the seat since statehood and won it in a special election a year after Begich’s grandfather, U.S. Rep. Nick Begich, was declared dead after his plane went missing while flying to Juneau in 1972. But unlike his grandfather and uncles former U.S. Sen. Mark Begich and current state Sen. Tom Begich, all Democrats, Nicholas Begich III is a Republican. “I think what I’ve been hearing from Alaskans is they’re ready to look forward, into the future,” the 44-year-old Begich told Alaska Public Media. Young, 88, seemed unfazed by Begich’s entry into the race. “I’m running hard and I’m running to win. Anyone is free to file, but the question is, who can best represent Alaska?”...

However, hearing his signature voice in James Patterson and Duane Swierczynski’s Audible Original drama The Guilty contributes to a highly immersive audio experience. The actor voices the reclusive, wildly successful writer Osmund Box, performing alongside Bryce Dallas Howard, Aldis Hodge, Corey Stoll, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Julie White, Stephanie DeRosa, Danny Burstein and Peter Gallagher. “There were so many elements there that appealed to me. James Patterson for one thing — the fact that Audible had invited him to experiment with audio drama, something that I’ve been doing my whole career, off and on,” Lithgow tells The Hollywood Reporter. “The extraordinary theatrical setting of this piece, and this larger-than-life character.” The setting he’s referring to is Broadway. It’s opening night of Box’s new play, but it soon becomes a murder scene, and New York City homicide detectives...
    Getty Duron Harmon With the NFL Trade Deadline approaching, the New England Patriots have some holes to fill on their roster if they have any hopes of making the postseason. We all know the team could still stand to add a playmaker at wide receiver. However, the Patriots might have an even bigger issue with depth in the secondary. With the trade that sent former NFL Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore to the Carolina Panthers for a sixth-round pick, New England is noticeably thin in the secondary. That’s why Bleacher Report’s Brent Sobleski believes the Patriots would be wise to go after a familiar face in Duron Harmon. The Patriots’ pass defense got exposed on Sunday by a high-powered Dallas Cowboys passing game. Dak Prescott threw for 447 yards and 4 TDs including the 35-yard strike to CeeDee Lamb in overtime to clinch the 35-29 victory. Some will say the Cowboys’ offense is so good, they’re capable of doing that to anyone. That could be true, but the Patriots’ pass coverage was taken advantage of the...

    (CNN) — Meghan, duquesa de Sussex, insta a los líderes demócratas del Congreso a aprobar la licencia familiar y médica federal pagada y “asegurar que este momento tan relevante no se pierda” mientras los demócratas continúan negociando un acuerdo para aprobar la red de seguridad social y el paquete de infraestructura del gobierno de Joe Biden. “La licencia remunerada debería ser un derecho nacional, en lugar de un mosaico de opciones limitada a aquellos cuyos empleadores tienen políticas establecidas, o a aquellos que viven en uno de los pocos estados donde existe un programa de licencias”, escribió en una carta al líder de la mayoría del Senado, Chuck Schumer, y a la presidenta de la Cámara de Representantes, Nancy Pelosi, publicada este miércoles por la organización Paid Leave for All. Los demócratas presionan a Biden para que adopte un papel contundente en el acercamiento de las facciones enfrentadas del partido sobre la agenda “Si vamos a crear una nueva era de políticas que den prioridad a la familia, asegurémonos de que eso incluya un sólido programa de licencias pagadas para...

Sports Eddie Rosario was the man for Atlanta in Game 4. (Wally Skalij / Los Angeles Times via Getty Images) One year after their NLCS collapse created another bleak chapter in the history of Atlanta sports, the Braves have attained another 3-1 lead over the same opponent, the defending champion Los Angeles Dodgers. The Braves got there by defeating the Dodgers 9-2 in Game 4 on Wednesday. The Dodgers had appeared to be in strong position to even the series after their wild comeback in Game 3, starting playoff stalwart Julio Urías against a bullpen game for Atlanta. The Braves' chances diminished even more when opener Huascar Ynoa was scratched. Reliever Jesse Chavez, who had pitched two of the last three days, started in Ynoa's place, but it was Urías who ended up looking like the gassed reliever. The southpaw, whose Game 2 relief appearance incited plenty of second-guessing...
    Getty Eagles safety Anthony Harris led the entire NFL in interceptions in 2019. Lane Johnson was back at practice in a limited capacity, but another starter didn’t participate. Safety Anthony Harris was held out on Wednesday, October 20 with an apparent hand injury. He was one of five Philadelphia Eagles players to carry an injury designation. Johnson was given a rest day – no complications from his previous ankle injury – but no timetable has been set for his return to the starting lineup. Meanwhile, center Jason Kelce (foot/rest), defensive end Derek Barnett (foot), long snapper Rick Lovato (hamstring) were also limited participants on the team’s practice report.

    MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle questioned the Biden administration's math as it continues to claim Biden's projected $3.5 trillion Build Back Better plan costs "zero dollars." "The President's plan won't add to our national deficit and no one making under $400,000 per year will see their taxes go up a single penny," Biden has claimed. "It's fully paid for by ensuring big corporations and the very wealthy pay their fair share." "That's a mathematics that I am not yet familiar with," Ruhle said of the White House's claim Tuesday after her interview of Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. "But we'll see." Ruhle did offer that the White House was putting forward an "ambitious" plan.  President Joe Biden remarks on June's jobs report.  (White House) PSAKI SLAMMED FOR OFFERING NO EXPLANATION FOR WHY BUILD BACK BETTER COSTS NOTHING: ‘BECAUSE IT WON’T' The administration has appeared to hit a snag with Americans, as recent polling revealed only 10% of people know "a lot of the specifics" of what's in the president's economic plan. Ruhle mused that was a reason Biden's economic agenda has...
    SAN FRANCISCO — He’s back, almost like he never left. Gary Payton II signed a new contract with the Warriors, the team announced Tuesday morning, just four days after he was one of the four players who fell victim to roster cuts at the end of the preseason. Coach Steve Kerr said after Friday’s preseason finale that it was difficult to cut Payton, whose first introduction to the Warriors came on back-to-back 10-day contracts two years ago, so it’s no surprise the two sides agreed to a reunion. Payton was battling with guards Avery Bradley, Mychal Mulder and forward Jordan Bell for the 15th and final spot on the regular-season roster, but he was set to be guaranteed a chunk of the two-year, $1.98 million contract he signed before last season, per Spotrac. By signing him to a new deal, the Warriors gain more flexibility in their precarious — and expensive — luxury tax situation. The Warriors did not provide specifics of the new deal, per team policy. Bradley, Payton’s partner in the backcourt battle,...

The Golden State Warriors may be planning to keep the 15th and final spot on their regular season roster open — at least for now. But a Dubs’ insider reported late last week that a familiar and recently departed face could potentially return to serve in that role.

    Federal Communications Commission acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel is not expected to be nominated by President Joe Biden to serve in the role on a permanent basis, people familiar with the matter said, because she is not liberal enough for the administration. The five-member agency, which is in charge of regulating the TV, radio, and telecommunications industries along with ensuring broadband internet access, has been missing one commissioner and a full-time chairman since Biden became president at the beginning of this year. The shortage of personnel has hampered Democrats from moving full-steam ahead with their ambitious broadband and telecommunications agenda. Currently, the agency has two Democratic and two Republican commissioners. When Rosenworcel’s term ends at the end of this year, Republicans could have a 2-1 advantage in votes. Liberals say that by failing to choose a full-time chairman to the agency, Biden has signaled that the commission is not important to his agenda, while agency-related issues important to Democrats continue to linger, such as restoring net neutrality rules, increasing internet price transparency, scrutinizing major telecommunications mergers, and improving competition among...
    The marine who was jailed after slamming military leadership for the Afghanistan withdrawal was found guilty of all charges Thursday, a person familiar with the case told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “I have been fighting for 17 years, and I am willing to throw it all away to say to my senior leaders ‘I demand accountability,'” Scheller said in an earlier video posted to his social media before he was thrown in the brig. Scheller waived his right to a trial by jury and instead requested a military judge trial, according to the person familiar with the case. The marine who spoke out publicly against the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan was found guilty on all charges and specifications at a court-martial hearing Thursday, a person familiar with the case told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
