    A BRIDE and groom were in for a rude surprise when their wedding officiant – a pastor picked by the groom’s mother – started criticizing their relationship during their ceremony.  Wedding goers eventually pressured the pastor to leave, but he was determined to make a fuss and double charged the couple as revenge. 3A bride and groom thought their wedding day was going by smoothly, but that changed when their officiant started bashing their relationshipCredit: Getty 3The bride and groom pleaded with the pastor to stop, but he wouldn't listen until the bride told him they didn't actually need him to get marriedCredit: Getty - Contributor The bride and groom were not religious, but to please the groom’s mother, they agreed to let the pastor from her conservative Evalangical church officiate the wedding.

    What do state Rep. Mary Franson, a conservative Republican from Alexandria, and Steve Grove, a former Google executive who is now DFL Gov. Tim Walz’s top economic official, have in common? Financial disclosure statements filed with the state suggest they, at some point, have owned investments in the electric car company Tesla worth at least $10,000. That fact is brought to you by Minnesota’s campaign finance laws, which require a wide range of public officials in the state to disclose some of their economic interests, including properties, investments and speaking fees. Officials even have to say whether they or a family member have a financial stake in horse racing, though only one top state official has reported such an investment: Jan Malcolm, commissioner of the Department of Health, who reported a stake in a four-year-old horse that races at Canterbury Park in Shakopee. “His name is Big Boy McCoy because he’s a very large horse,” Malcolm said. The disclosures, available on the Campaign Finance Board’s website, can give insight into the financial holdings of public officials, while providing a safeguard...
    Actress Cate Blanchett is hitting the panic button on climate change, saying people need to be “scared” because it will motivate them to “do something about it.” In an interview with Porter, the digital outlet of Net-A-Porter, the two-time Oscar-winning star said people are insufficiently concerned about global warming. “Everyone is trying to be positive, talking about 1.5 degrees of global warming. But 1.5 would still be disastrous,” she told the outlet. “We need to be fucking scared… and demand change; be collectively courageous enough to face that fear and do something about it.” She added: “I’m not giving up hope. As I say to my kids [on climate change], if we’re going out, how do we choose to go out? It’s a terrible conversation to have with your 13-year-old, isn’t it?” Cate Blanchett was promoting her upcoming movies Don’t Look Up, a Netflix comedy about a comet heading for Earth, and Searchlight’s Nightmare Alley. In her native Australia, the actress has faced criticism for her climate change activism. Some politicians dubbed her “Carbon Cate” after she appeared in a commercial in...

The buy will increase Disney's weighting in the portfolio from 1.8% to 2.07%. On Friday, we commented that as tempting as it was to step into those stocks most at risk of the omicron variant — the ones that need cross-border activity and are tied to travel and entertainment — we simply did not have enough information and felt it better to wait and see if we would get better prices Monday. With that being the case this morning, we are ready to take advantage. While the omicron variant has certainly added a headwind to the experiential side of Disney's operations (think parks,...
    PHILADELPHIA (CNN) — A new and potentially more transmissible coronavirus variant first identified by South African scientists has prompted a fresh round of travel restrictions across the world and raised concern about what may be next in the pandemic. The strain, named Omicron, was designated Friday as a variant of concern by the World Health Organization, which said studies of it are underway as advisers continue to monitor it. While scientists say there is reason to be concerned over Omicron, they stress there is still a lot we don’t know — including whether the variant is indeed more contagious, whether it causes more severe disease or what its effects on vaccine efficacy may be.

    Q: Our 2005 Prius has gone a few miles and the engine batteries have never been replaced. We noticed the odometer hit 299,999 and watched to see it turn 300,000. The odometer did not roll over! We checked with the dealership. Some models have an odometer ceiling. What? They didn’t believe their vehicle would travel so far! Getting a new odometer is costly. We need to report accurate mileage for tax purposes. We think this is a manufacturing defect that Toyota should rectify. Your opinion? Tom Farley, Redwood City A: This 300,000-mile cap caught Jeff-the-Roadshow-Car-Man by surprise. “I’ve not heard of that! It’s not a defect in any sense. After 300,000 miles, I sure don’t feel like (Toyota) owes them anything. I’d say either pony up for a new odometer or look into a GPS-enabled option.” Now my question to other owners of hybrids, how many miles have you traveled in your vehicle? Can anyone top the 300,000-mile mark? Q: I read your response to “Hwy. 25 may become option to traffic-clogged 152.” I’m disheartened that this option might be...

Brittany added: “Our happily ever after is paying off a divorce we never got.  “But for the record, We ALMOST have (my side) of it paid off!” She explained in the comments that their divorce was so expensive as it wasn’t straightforward or mutual.

    One of New York City's most high-profile campaigners for defunding the police lives in an Army barracks protected by tanks and soldiers, it has emerged. Jumaane Williams, who is running for governor of New York, was accused of hypocrisy on Sunday when New Yorkers blighted by rising crime and soaring gun violence learnt that he is living in a fortress.   'He gets to protect himself, and yet we can't?' asked Joseph Rolland, 53, who lives close to Williams' base in Brooklyn.    He told The New York Post: 'I'm not upset that he gets to protect himself on a military base as long as the citizens of the city can also protect themselves, whether it's through private security or our police department, which we pay taxes for.' Williams, 45, is currently the New York City Public Advocate - an elected position, which means he oversees city agencies, investigates complaints about services and makes suggestions for improvements.  Jumaane Williams, 45, is currently running to be elected governor of New York, with a Democrat primary scheduled for June. He is a vocal supporter...
    THE Sun today issues a fresh call for Jabs Army volunteers — with all over 18s set to be offered a Covid booster sooner to fight the Omicron strain. With a third UK case discovered yesterday, we need 25,000 volunteers to help give booster jabs. 3The Sun today issues a fresh call for Jabs Army volunteers — with all over 18s set to be offered a Covid booster sooner to fight the Omicron strainCredit: Getty It comes as one vaccine expert admitted that over 18s will “have an offer of a booster earlier than we had previously envisaged”. Professor Anthony Harnden, deputy chairman of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, said extending the age range for boosters and reducing the delay before receiving them was “a sensible strategy”. He said under-40s “should expect” to get the booster earlier than expected because of Omicron. Cases of the variant have been discovered in Nottingham, Essex and London and PM Boris Johnson says it is now more vital than ever that people have a booster shot. So, the Sun’s Jabs Army is...
    DEAR ABBY: My husband of 42 years wanted to move to the Northwest. We initially fell in love with it and lived there for four years. I found work, made friends and enjoyed myself immensely. Jeanne Phillips  My husband kept traveling back to Southern California for work and decided he no longer wanted to live up north. I protested, but he didn’t want to hear it, so we moved back down again. Now, after the pandemic year and having lived in our home less than two years, he wants to move back to the Northwest because “it’s too hot, too crowded, etc., here.” I gave him my opinion, and a huge fight ensued. I never wanted to move back south, but he was belligerently insistent. I’m not sure what to think anymore. Any advice? NORTH VS.

    Republicans have argued for decades that what we used to call global warming and now call climate change is a hoax. And for all those decades, they’ve been, and still are, wrong. Climate change is real. Human-driven climate change is real. So far, humanity has failed in its custodial duty to the planet and the ecosystems that have provided us with existence for some six million years. In most of humanity’s defense, it’s really been the last 150 or so years that we’ve let the Earth down—since the Industrial Revolution began in earnest. The ironic twist, of course, is that in failing the planet we inhabit, we have also failed ourselves. But the end is not yet nigh. So what can be done, from right now forward, to mitigate and reverse some (some) of the ecosystem damage and climate change we are facing? The good news is that there are quite a few measures we know will work. The bad news is that many of those should have been implemented a long while ago. But there are options for us still....
    During an interview with CBS’ “The Takeout” podcast recorded on Tuesday and released on Friday, Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) said there is “a crisis at the border” and we need to have stronger investments of people and resources to address the issue. Host Major Garrett asked, [relevant remarks begin around 38:50] “Does this White House have a blind spot about what’s happening at the border and the political implications thereof?” Spanberger responded, “I don’t know how I would classify it, but should we be taking action to ensure that every individual who’s working at the border has the technology, the resources that they need? Absolutely. We have border security agents who are working so hard, and contending with people who are trying to cross the border is one portion of it. But doing interdictions is another portion of it.” She added, “We have a crisis at the border that we have to contend with. We have people who are crossing the border and we need greater technology. We need greater investments of people and of resources and immigration judges.” Follow...
    Prof. Wolfgang Preiser, Stellenbosch University; Cathrine Scheepers, University of the Witwatersrand; Jinal Bhiman, National Institute for Communicable Diseases; Marietjie Venter, University of Pretoria, and Tulio de Oliveira, University of KwaZulu-Natal Since early in the COVID pandemic, the Network for Genomics Surveillance in South Africa has been monitoring changes in SARS-CoV-2. This was a valuable tool to understand better how the virus spread. In late 2020, the network detected a new virus lineage, 501Y.V2, which later became known as the beta variant. Now a new SARS-CoV-2 variant has been identified – B.1.1.529. The World Health Organisation has declared it a variant of concern, and assigned it the name Omicron. To help us understand more, The Conversation Africa’s Ozayr Patel asked scientists to share what they know. What’s the science behind the search?Hunting for variants requires a concerted effort. South Africa and the UK were the first big countries to implement nationwide genomic surveillance efforts for SARS-CoV-2 as early as April 2020. Variant hunting, as exciting as that sounds, is performed through whole genome sequencing of samples that have tested positive...

    Adele has stated that she is a 'dying breed' in the music industry, in a chat that came shortly before she made 'crossover chart history' with her comeback song Easy On Me.

And on Friday, Adele's Easy on Me duet with Chris Stapleton landed on the Country Airplay after its mainstream debut on the Billboard Hot 100 - a move which meant she was described as an 'artist who transcends format.'

    SOME SAY that putting restrictions on your partner on what they can or cannot do is toxic, but that's not the case for this woman. Brittney Rogers, 31, shared on social media that she and her husband have rules they follow and it works for them. 3Brittney Rogers revealed the rules that make her marriage workCredit: TikTok / @brittneyrogers8 3She said neither of them can watch pornCredit: TikTok / @brittneyrogers8 The mom of five wanted to start a riot as she shared the things she and her husband do that many could hate. First, neither of them goes to clubs or bars without the other. That means she doesn't go to these spots for girls' night or after-work drinks. They are also not allowed to watch pornography. Many couples have this rule as it can be a form of cheating. And unlike most couples, Brittney and her husband keep their finances completely separate and split every bill down the middle.

    A new super mutant Covid variant that has sparked fears of another lockdown in the UK may have emerged in a HIV patient in Africa, is the most-evolved version yet and could make jabs much weaker. Scientists believe that its extensive mutations mean it must have originated in a severely immunocompromised patient, possibly an undiagnosed person with AIDS. It has more than 30 mutations, giving it all the transmissibility of the currently-dominant Delta strain and the same ability to escape vaccines as the old South African variant Beta.  Experts fear the new variant — called B.1.1.529 — may make the vaccines at least 40 per cent less effective, because it is so different from the original strain the vaccines were made to target. Britons have been put on alert that there could be a Christmas lockdown, with one of No10’s vaccine advisers warning ‘we all need to be ready’ for restrictions to be reimposed. Here is everything we know about the variant so far: What is so concerning about the variant? Experts say it is the 'worst variant they have...
    THERE are loads of reasons why Aldi is one of our favourite places to shop - and it's not just the cheap prices that keeps sucking us in. In fact, the German supermarket chain - made popular by its speedy check-out and no-fuss shopping - has become a go-to for many, but there are some things we should all know. 2Aldi workers have revealed what you should know about shopping in-storeCredit: Getty The check-out is different A former employee previously revealed the reason why Aldi staff move at super-speed when scanning your items. And it's because they once had scanning targets to meet - although this isn't the case anymore. Another reason check-out workers are able to move so swiftly is because Aldi products have multiple barcodes, a former worker told My London. This means staff don't have to fumble about in search of where to scan - and you can whizz through in minutes. What's more, the length of the conveyor belt was specifically designed for customers to be able to unload a...
    More than 100 people filled the dining room at Ararat Nursing Facility to celebrate Thanksgiving. Children and grandchildren embraced their loved ones. Friends in wheelchairs sat beside one another chatting in Armenian. Residents rose from their seats to dance to “Hey Jan Ghapama,” an Armenian song written about a stuffed pumpkin dish. At one of the tables in the Mission Hills nursing home, 82-year-old Anahit Papiryan danced as best she could from her wheelchair, throwing her hands up in the air and turning them from side to side. At times, she kissed her granddaughter Ruzanna Grigoryan’s hand. “You’re the light of my life,” Papiryan told the 34-year-old in Armenian. Papiryan, originally from Yerevan, immigrated to the United States more than 30 years ago. “You’re my heart,” responded Grigoryan, who wore a blue surgical mask to keep her grandmother safe. The Thanksgiving scene was a far cry from last year, which consisted of limited outdoor visits and calls from behind windows to protect vulnerable nursing home residents amid a surge of COVID-19 cases. Gone was the COVID unit...
    This is the bizarre moment a drunk motorist in weaved through traffic and boasted that he and his passenger where ready to die before he deliberately drove over a sidewalk and destroyed a tree in Argentina.

    Vice President Kamala Harris slammed the 'racist' defense of Ahmaud Arbery's killers after all three men were found guilty of murder on Wednesday.  All three defendants in the Ahmaud Arbery trial were found guilty of murdering the black jogger in February 2020 on Wednesday, prompting celebrations in the streets of Georgia.  'These verdicts send an important message, but the fact remains that we still have work to do,' the vice president said.  'The defense counsel chose to set a tone that cast the attendance of ministers at the trial as intimidation and dehumanized a young Black man with racist tropes. The jury arrived at its verdicts despite these tactics.' She said after the verdict: 'Still, we feel the weight of grief. Ahmaud Arbery should be alive, and nothing can take away the pain that his mother Wanda Cooper-Jones, his father Marcus Arbery, and the entire Arbery family and community feel today. I share in that pain.' Meanwhile, President Biden said the Ahmaud Arbery killing was a 'devastating reminder' of racial injustice in the US, but that the guilty verdict shows the 'justice...
    Nobody who has been reading my column here at Dailymail.com the last few months will be shocked at how divided Americans are as a nation and a culture. A recent survey by the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia found that about 50% of Donald Trump voters and 40% of Joe Biden voters agree to some extent with the proposition that the country should split up, with either red or blue states seceding. It is both shocking and jarring that so many citizens find so little in common or that connects us that half of the country thinks we are better off scrapping our 250 year experiment with freedom and democracy. I get it, there is a lot to be pessimistic about after five particularly horrible years that started with the chaos of the Trump administration and are continuing with the ineptitude and extremism of the Biden administration. Inflation, Afghanistan, insane school boards and woke culture run amok, a media that signals it's okay to loot businesses as long as it is in the name of racial justice,...

    The Met Council, the Twin Cities regional planning and transit agency, isn’t alone in how the COVID-19 pandemic affected its operations and people. The shutdowns of many businesses — and the advent of work from home — slashed ridership and revenue for the agency. Already facing a structural deficit, it was pushed further into the red with the loss of farebox revenue — even as it was obligated to continue to operate some services for those who didn’t have the ability to work from home. It also took on those challenges with a new boss. Charlie Zelle, the former state Minnesota Department of Transportation commissioner, was appointed just before the pandemic hit, which he had to address along with other inherited challenges: transit safety, budgets and the increasingly fraught Southwest LRT construction. MinnPost spoke with Zelle about his first two years in the high-profile position, and how the Met Council plans to move forward. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.  MinnPost: It probably seemed like a good idea to have accepted this job when the governor offered...

Fox News' Peter Doocy asked Psaki in a daily briefing.  'President Trump ... didn't just refuse to condemn militia groups on the debate stage he actively encouraged them throughout his presidency,' Psaki replied.  'So what we've seen are the tragic consequences of that - when people think it's okay to take the law into their own hands instead of allowing law enforcement to do its job.'  Psaki continued: 'The president spoke to the verdict last week. He has obviously condemned the hatred and division and violence from groups like the Proud Boys, and obviously that individual has posed in photos with, but beyond that I'll leave it to his comments around the verdict.'  During the trial, prosecutors presented a photo of Rittenhouse as evidence of him consorting with...

The mother-daughter team of Amy Kremer and Kylie Jane Kremer helped organize the Women for America First Save America on Jan. 6th. Each have been subpoenaed by the House select Jan. 6th committee. Amy Kremer, who was also a founder of the Tea Party movement, put in for fancy hors d-oeuvres on the evening of the 6th – in a replay of the prior night's noshing at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel near the White House.  Group chat messages viewed by Rolling Stone recount her party planning as beleaguered Capitol Police countered hundreds of protesters and rioters. Sources told the publication attendees at the Willard event were also drinking champagne in the hotel suite that night. But while the organizers put in for cured meats on their own initiative, the group texts also appear to show deference to the White House on the planning...
    DENVER (CBS4) – Denver will announce Tuesday that it will join several other counties in the metro area with an indoor mask mandate. It will join Jefferson County, and the two remaining counties of Tri-County Health — Adams County and Arapahoe County — to initiate a return to indoor masking on Wednesday. The move was not met with excitement, but a collective groan, from not only mask opponents, but health experts who loathe being in the position of having to re-institute the ban due to the delta variant and the large portion of the population remaining unvaccinated putting pressure on the hospitals. “I still think it’s likely the best public health practice to do it,” said Greg Deranleau, President of the Jefferson County Board of Public Health. “A strong economy is good public health also. Doing nothing, I think, turns us into a place where ultimately … our businesses will suffer more if we do nothing than if we take action.” But some in business don’t like the idea. In Denver, skate and snowboard shop owner Graeme Jensen said, “I’ve...

    By the time Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy and his players spoke to the media Monday at Halas Hall, they had only about 72 hours to prepare for Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions. The quick turnaround demanded they move on quickly from Sunday’s brutal 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Here are three things we heard from Nagy and players as they regrouped. 1. The Bears are evaluating Justin Fields’ pain and movement as they decide whether he can play Thursday. Nagy didn’t provide an update on the injured ribs Fields suffered in the third quarter Sunday, though multiple reports — including an Instagram video of Fields — said initial tests showed his ribs are bruised but not broken. Nagy said Fields needs to undergo more tests. Fields also reportedly had his spleen checked out, but Nagy said the injury is only to Fields’ ribs. As they consider which quarterback will start in Detroit, Nagy said the Bears will have to evaluate Fields’ pain level and weigh that against the desire to further Fields’ growth...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Speaking as a business owner who has been victimized by criminals three times this year, Gov. Gavin Newsom did not mince words Monday when asked about the stunning outbreak of retail smash-and-grab crimes across the San Francisco Bay Area since Friday. The wave of smash and grabs targeted upscale retailers in San Francisco, San Jose, Hayward and Walnut Creek. READ MORE: UPDATE: Smash-and-Grab Thieves Target Hayward Mall; Lululemon Store Robbed in San Jose's Santana RowAmong the most stunning was a flash mob of looters who swarmed into the Nordstrom store in downtown Walnut Creek Saturday night, terrorizing shoppers, assaulting employees, ripping off bag loads of merchandise and ransacking shelves before fleeing in a several vehicles waiting for them on the street.

    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) stated that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is acting as the Chinese Communist Party’s “frontman” in the case of Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai and argued that the U.S. should totally boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics because we can’t guarantee the safety of American competitors from “ubiquitous electronic surveillance, to DNA harvesting, or simply hostage-taking.” Cotton said, [relevant remarks begin around 2:30] “The IOC is acting as nothing but a frontman for the Chinese Communist Party. Last week, I called for a complete and total boycott of these games, partly because the Biden administration cannot assure the safety of our athletes and their coaches and staff from ubiquitous electronic surveillance, to DNA harvesting, or simply hostage-taking. If the Chinese Communist Party will take its own athletes and disappear them and then march them out in hostage videos like this, what will they do to our athletes? This is a regime that is committing genocide against its own people. We should not be doing anything to celebrate or...

    VIDEO1:5701:57White House responds to Rittenhouse verdictThe News with Shepard Smith President Joe Biden said Friday that he and many other Americans feel "angry and concerned" about the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse for killing two men and wounding a third man— but also said that people have to "abide by" the jury's verdict. Biden called for calm in Kenosha, Wisconsin, acknowledging the strong emotions that led to civil unrest and shootings by Rittenhouse there last year, and which authorities are concerned could recur after his acquittal. "I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law. Violence and destruction of property have no place in our democracy," the president said in a prepared statement. "The White House and Federal authorities have been in contact with Governor [Tony] Evers's office to prepare for any outcome in this case, and I have spoken with the Governor this afternoon and offered support and any assistance needed to ensure public safety." Biden originally spoke to reporters shortly after a jury found Rittenhouse not guilty on all five criminal counts. "I stand by what...
    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields said Wednesday he used the bye week to rest his body as he gears up for the second half of the season, starting with Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens at Soldier Field. As the Bears resumed practices at Halas Hall this week, here are five things we heard from the rookie and his coaches. 1. Fields said he studied Lamar Jackson film at Ohio State. Fields expressed admiration for the fourth-year quarterback, who has 2,447 passing yards with 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions and 639 rushing yards and two touchdowns this season. “There’s not many guys who are like Lamar Jackson,” Fields said of the Ravens QB. “He does stuff that some receivers, running backs can’t even do. … Just all of the backlash he got coming out of college saying he was a running back and stuff like that, he’s just proving everybody wrong and, of course, he’s one of the best in the league right now. So just seeing that young Black quarterbacks can get the job done —...

    New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams lamented on the state of the city’s nightlife and vowed to resurrect it during his appearance on Tuesday night’s Late Show. During his appearance, Adams gifted host Stephen Colbert several NYC-themed goodies – including rolling papers and a small bag full of ‘weed.’  Colbert brought up Adams star-studded election night after party at Manhattan’s lavish Zero Bond, to which Adams noted that in the same night he also club-hopped to Casa Cipriani and Brooklyn’s Sugar Hill. ‘I’m the mayor [elect], this is a city of nightlife — I must test the product. I have to be out,’ he said, before slamming what he said was a drop in the nightlife activity of the city the never sleeps. He added, ‘We used to be the coolest place on the globe. We’re so damn boring now. We have to be among the people enjoying life. I want the cross-pollination of our energy and the diversity of our city. We’ve got some beautiful places in the city so I’m gonna be out.’ New York City Mayor-elect Eric...
    You might want to get in line now to get your holiday mail out in time. The United States Postal Service is the nation’s most popular federal agency by a mile—91% of Americans have a favorable opinion of it. Or at least, 91% of Americans (as close as you can get to unanimous in public opinion) loved it before Trump turned it over to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and his enabler, Board of Governors Chair Ron Bloom, and they started doing things like killing baby chicks and delaying prescription drug and utility bill deliveries, and flirted with sabotaging the elections. The Bloom/DeJoy team decided to follow up the debacles of 2020 by adopting DeJoy’s 10-year plan to slow down the mail, reduce local post office hours, and make it cost a lot more to send mail, just in time for the holidays. Given how much the public loves the Postal Service, it sure seems like it would welcome President Joe Biden saving the institution as his gift to the nation. Just in time for Christmas, Bloom’s extended term on the board is going to...
