    Former President Donald Trump took yet another swing at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday night, blaming the Kentucky Republican for failing to pass his $2 trillion infrastructure proposal while president. “Why is it that Old Crow Mitch McConnell voted for a terrible Democrat Socialist Infrastructure Plan, and induced others in his Party to do likewise, when he was incapable of getting a great Infrastructure Plan wanting to be put forward by me and the Republican Party?” Trump said in a statement. Last week, Trump lashed out at McConnell and the other 18 GOP Senators for “helping Democrats” by voting for the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill. “How about all of those Republican Senators that voted thinking that helping the Democrats is such a wonderful thing to do, so politically correct,” Trump said in a statement on Sunday. “They just don’t get it! Now they’ll go for the big kill—getting their second $1.9 Trillion Bill (really $5 Trillion) approved, again with RINO support.” In 2016, Trump campaigned on a pledge to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure, a...
    A former Miss Great Britain who was inspired to lose eight stone following a difficult break up has said it's 'totally acceptable' to dump a partner who has put on the pounds if they aren't 'willing to get back in shape'. Jen Atkin, who won the beauty pageant crown last year, appeared on Good Morning Britain today to discuss Alice Evans claims that her estranged husband Ioan Gruffudd told her he would leave her if she 'gained weight'. The columnist, from Ulceby, Lincolnshire, said it was 'totally acceptable' to ditch someone who 'wasn't willing to get healthy again' - especially if 'you don't fancy them anymore'. However body confidence coach Queen MoJo, who joined Jen on this morning's programme and appears on ITV2's new reality TV show Peckham's Finest, insisted it shouldn't matter since 'weight isn't a personality trait'. Jen transformed from 17 stone to 9 stone after the breakdown of her first serious relationship, fearing that she wouldn't meet someone else. Scroll down for video 
    On Wednesday, Senate Republicans blocked a motion to begin debate on the Freedom to Vote Act. The bill was in part the handiwork of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), and would end partisan gerrymandering, expand opportunities to vote, and modernize voter registration, among other provisions. Manchin opposes the more robust For the People Act, and the bill shot down on Wednesday was partly an attempt by him to notch Republican votes. Obviously, that did work out. His former Senate colleague and current MSNBC analyst Claire McCaskill took Manchin to task on Wednesday’s Deadline: White House. Asked by host Nicolle Wallace why some Democrats such as Manchin “tolerate being dominated” by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his merry band of filibusterers. McCaskill didn’t seem to have an answer, though she did take the time to call out Manchin. “Joe Manchin was for this bill,” she said. “Joe Manchin negotiated this bill. And Joe Manchin has been given the ever-lovin’ arms of the Republican Party around him. ‘Oh, Joe’s our guy. Joe’s standing up for what’s right.’ He couldn’t get one vote...

    COULD it be that my size and weight are somehow tied up with an experience I had early on in life? One of my strongest childhood memories is of a Sunday when my dad came to the house and we were sitting eating our roast dinner together. 10'Why am I constantly battling to lose weight when my body doesn’t seem to want to get rid of it?'Credit: Mark Hayman/ Fabulous Magazine 10The weird thing was that, in two years with the gastric band, I didn’t lose more than a stoneCredit: Rex My dad, Clifford Hammond, was a big man with a big presence. He wooed my mum Maria and she fell madly in love with him, and pregnant with me, before finding out he was married. Dad came to our house sporadically. He would just land on us and expect the whole world to stop for him — and because my mum was in love with him, the whole world did stop. Mum’s great cooking came into its own when she made her Sunday roast, but this Sunday I...
    by Zheng Tian, Penn State and Stephan J. Goetz, Penn State The Research Brief is a short take about interesting academic work. The big ideaAmericans in households with annual incomes from $50,000 to $75,000 experienced the sharpest increase in food insufficiency when the COVID-19 pandemic began – meaning that many people in the middle class didn't have enough to eat at some point within the previous seven days, according to our peer-reviewed study that will soon be published in the Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics. We also found that food banks, food pantries and similar emergency services helped reduce food insufficiency, especially for middle-income Americans, by the end of 2020. When we averaged Census Bureau survey data collected after April 23, 2020, we saw that food insufficiency rates rose among Americans at all income levels. To be sure, Americans in households earning less than $50,000 annually are the most prone to food insufficiency. That remained true during the initial months of the pandemic when places like schools, offices and restaurants remained closed to restrict the spread of COVID-19....

    The Pentagon has spent more than $1 billion on a program meant to help survivors of domestic abuse since 2015. But advocates and survivors told CBS News that they couldn't get help.  "I've never had anyone report to me that they received any type of help with moving, any type of help with food assistance, any type of help with just getting a protection order," said Lisa Colella, who runs the private nonprofit Healing Household 6, which aims to support veterans' caregivers and survivors of domestic violence.

    On Friday’s “CNN Newsroom,” CNN Chief International Correspondent Clarissa Ward responded to President Joe Biden’s claim in his speech earlier in the day that Americans are able to get to the airport in Afghanistan by stating that “we had difficulty getting into the airport. Working out how to get into this airport is like a Rubik’s cube.” And that while getting into the airport as an American is technically doable, “it’s extremely difficult and it is dangerous.” Ward said, “Well, we had difficulty getting into the airport. Working out how to get into this airport is like a Rubik’s cube. You have to sit and go through a whole different slew of factors and contingency plans and trying to get help from some different places.

    TEEN Mom star Nikkole Paulun admitted she once got self-tanner all over her daughter Ellie while breastfeeding and wasn’t able to remove it.

    Yankees’ patchwork lineup couldn’t get anything going against Boston: ‘We are in a hole’ Andres Chavez July 17, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Yankees were forced to play with lots of reserves and minor leaguers on Friday night’s series opener against the Boston Red Sox. A COVID-19 outbreak took Aaron Judge, Gio Urshela, and Kyle Higashioka from the lineup, plus pitchers Jonathan Loaisiga, Wandy Peralta, ad Nestor Cortes Jr. On top of that, first baseman Luke Voit was placed on the 10-day injured list with knee soreness and there is no timetable for his return. As a result, the Yankeed had to play the likes of Trey Amburgey, Hoy Park, Brett Gardner, Tim Locastro, Chris Gittens, and Greg Allen. Not only that, but DJ LeMahieu, Giancarlo Stanton, Sánchez and Gleyber Torres combined to go 1-for-15 as the Yankees fell to 0-7 against the Red Sox. “We’re in a hole,” manager Aaron Boone said to MLB.com. “We’ve got to play really...

    Houston Astros slugger Jose Altuve is on a tear — one fans grew accustomed to in the years before the 2017 sign-stealing scandal came to light. Altuve has perhaps been the most victimized by the Astros team actions in that fateful World Series season — and arguably beyond. The former All-Star second baseman remains one of the best players in baseball at his position, but his reputation has been forever tarnish by what he and his teammates willingly took part in to reach baseball’s pinnacle. Now, Altuve is trying to win us back. No, not Astros fans. They’ll love him forever. I’m talking about the average baseball fan, watching the Astros on a Thursday night for god knows what reason, trying not to root against the franchise that literally stole itself a World Series ring. If you couldn’t tell, I’m still a little salty. And I have no reason to be. Altuve is a work of art, a 5-6 infielder who doesn’t look anything like a professional baseball player. He deserves his accolades, not just the hate he rightfully gets...

    (CNN)In February, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell excoriated former President Donald Trump, calling him "practically and morally responsible" for the attack on the US Capitol. Now, McConnell opposes the creation of an independent commission to investigate the January 6 insurrection -- going so far as to ask his fellow Republicans for "a personal favor" to block it. Julian ZelizerDespite the fact that there are still so many unanswered questions surrounding the events on January 6, it's likely McConnell is more concerned that a commission will hurt the Republican Party's chances in the upcoming 2022 midterm election. That's mainstream Republicanism in a nutshell: do whatever is necessary to protect the power of the party. Then there is Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has a track record of spewing anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, racist, and conspiratorial statements. She sunk to a new low this week when she compared the implementation of public health initiatives to steps the Nazis took as they sought to destroy the Jewish population during the Holocaust. When her comments were met with harsh criticism, Greene simply doubled down....

    Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez did everything to work through their relationship issues following a snap report and rumors last month the pair had split – and now the world knows why Lopez decided to call it quits. "She insisted on it. There are too many issues that are unresolved," a friend of Lopez told People magazine on Wednesday. "She has been pretty miserable and didn't think it was in her best interests to stay with Alex." Ultimately, the source relayed to the publication that the 51-year-old pop superstar and actress simply could no longer "trust" Rodriguez after she and the former Yankees slugger and current baseball analyst issued joint statements in mid-March that they were "working through some things" and that "all the reports" of a supposed split were "inaccurate."

The Mail on Sunday can reveal that Taylor Swift is living in a £7 million six-bedroom townhouse in the North London enclave with actor Joe Alwyn.  The couple spent much of lockdown at his flat in nearby Crouch End. Ms Swift, 31, will have no shortage of famous neighbours, although it seems likely that she will be keen to avoid at least some of them. Two of her ex-boyfriends, singer Harry Styles and actor Tom Hiddleston, live little more than a proverbial stone’s throw away.  One Direction star Styles is based in adjacent Hampstead, while Hiddleston is thought to be less than a mile away.

    Republicans could be poised for massive gains in the state of Florida thanks to the upcoming redistricting process that the GOP is set to control in the state. “FLORIDA: if you thought things couldn't get worse for Dems...it can. FL could be the GOP's biggest redistricting weapon of 2021,” Cook Political Report editor Dave Wasserman said on Twitter. “FL is poised to gain two seats. At a minimum, Rs could easily add two new safe R seats (right) to the current 16R-11D map (left).” Because the FL Sup Ct has turned sharply right since 2015, Rs could be even more aggressive - in defiance of FL's Fair Districts amendments. At the extreme end, Rs could attempt a 21R-8D gerrymander (below), which could cost Dems almost their entire House majority. pic.twitter.com/uxl8hiliJo— Dave Wasserman (@Redistrict) March 2, 2021 Wasserman included photos of two maps, one showing the current configuration of the state’s congressional districts and one showing a hypothetical map after the redistricting process. With Florida set to gain two seats this decade, Wasserman said it would be easy for the GOP...
    Heres what we know about the United flight that suffered engine damage and dropped debris in Denver area Suu Kyis lawyer soldiers on in defence of democracy THE MONEYIST © Getty/iStock The Moneyist: ‘Your financial adviser is not a Wizard of Omaha or a Wizard from Hogwarts.’ Dear Quentin, Load Error I read the letter sent to you from the four husband-and-wife friends about how their different savings strategies and a shared financial adviser came between them. It is similar to my own situation, except we were the ones recommending our wealthy neighbors consult with our financial adviser. My husband and I retired early. We were very frugal. Friends called us cheap. We prefer thrifty or frugal. We had no children, they had three kids; we rarely took vacations, they vacationed every year. Who deserves an annual vacation? There’s a reason why we retired early. We always paid cash for our modest cars, but then drove our cars for 10 years or more. I don’t think they ever went two months without at least even one...

    Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he could no longer dish out his infamous "hairdryer" blasts in the modern-day game because snowflake footballers have been known to cry. The ex-Manchester United boss became renowned for his many close-up screaming and spitting outbursts - including infamously injuring David Beckham’s eye – as even the England captain, Wayne Rooney, and Cristiano Ronaldo were not immune. 2Ferguson was known for having a fierce temper at timesCredit: AP:Associated Press But Fergie now bemoans the fact that current football managers are restricted from using his fearsome motivational weapon because society has changed and players have become too sensitive. Speaking to The Athletic, he said: "Jim Smith told me one of his players started crying when he got criticised. "I thought ‘What is the game like now? Where are we going?’ "Obviously you have to be tactful nowadays about the criticism you give them."
