    President Biden seemed to misremember his diplomacy record in Israel in the early days of his career, telling a tale about meeting with former Prime Minister Golda Meir in 1967, while he was still in law school and she wasn't the nation's leader.  'I have known every — every prime minister well since Golda Meir, including Golda Meir,' Biden said during a Hanukkah celebration on Thursday.  'And during the Six-Day War, I had an opportunity to — she invited me to come over because I was going to be the liaison between she and the Egyptians about the Suez.'  The Six Day War was conflict between Israel and Jordan, Syria and Egypt, which ended in Israel seizing the Golan Heights, West Bank, Gaza Strip and Sinai Peninsula. It last from June 5-10 1967, a time when Biden was still in law school and Meir was not yet prime minister.  'I sat in front of her desk,' Biden said. 'And she had a guy — her staff member — to my right. His name was Rabin. And she kept flipping those...

    U.S. employers added just 210,000 jobs in November, well below the estimated half a million that economists had predicted.  It's a sign that companies are still cautious as the coronavirus pandemic drags on.      The data was compiled before Wednesday's announcement that the Omicron variant of COVID-19 was found in the U.S.  President Joe Biden will address the November jobs report Friday morning from the White House  The unemployment rate fell to 4.2 per cent, the lowest since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis. It was 4.6 per cent in October.   The U.S. has gained back 83 per cent of the jobs lost due to the pandemic.  Wages increased further.  President Joe Biden is scheduled to speak about the jobs reports at 10:15 a.m. Friday morning.  The numbers come after a brighter October, when employers added 531,000 workers to their payrolls.  November's modest employment gains could temper expectations that the economy was poised for stronger growth this quarter after hitting a speed bump in the third quarter.  Consumer spending and manufacturing activity have been strong.  But the Omicron variant of COVID-19 poses...

    (CNN)White House coronavirus response coordinator Jeffrey Zients is set to announce the Biden administration is shipping 11 million vaccines doses abroad on Friday, with 9 million going to Africa and another 2 million to other countries around the world, according to remarks obtained by CNN.The move follows President Joe Biden's announcement Thursday that the administration will send more than 200 million doses abroad in 100 days, accelerating delivery to high-risk countries. The Friday shipment brings the total number of US-provided doses sent to Africa to 100 million."The President has been clear from the start: If we want to protect the American people and our economy, we must defeat the virus everywhere. That means we must ensure the rest of the world gets vaccinated," Zients is expected to say, according to the remarks. "And under President Biden's leadership, the United States is leading the way."The Biden administration also will push international partners to take a stronger role in aiding in global vaccine efforts."From supporting communications campaigns to build vaccine confidence, to funding for vaccinators on the front line -- we are...
    During an interview with ABC aired on Thursday, Alec Baldwin said that he isn’t responsible for the shooting on the set of “Rust,” he might have committed suicide if he thought he was responsible, and that while he is going to make another movie in January, he wonders if continuing working is worth it. Baldwin said that he doesn’t care about his career anymore and that his career could be over. He continued, “I mean, could I work? I’m going to go make another movie in January. And I said to them, ‘Do you want to get out of it? Do you want to get rid of me because of what happened?’ They said no. But I say to myself, do I want to work much more after this? Is it worth it?” Baldwin also stated, “I feel that someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me. I mean, honest to God, if I felt that I was responsible, I might have killed myself if I thought I was...
    Lincoln Riley has turned the recruiting tides for USC football as Oklahoma commits have changed course to the Trojans and another 5-star has done so.  From the moment that Lincoln Riley to USC became a reality, college football fans knew that the recruiting landscape was going to change dramatically. And since then, Oklahoma has been bleeding high-level recruits as four players ranked in the top 110 and three in the top 30 of the 247Sports Composite Rankings for 2023 have decommitted. One such player, Malachi Nelson — the No. 2 overall recruit in 2023 — already made his decision to commit to USC football moving forward. The expectation has been that more will follow. Though not in the 2023 class, we have another player in that vein. Raleek Brown, a 2022 5-star running back from Mater Dei in California, deommitted from the Sooners on Wednesday night. And less than 24 hours later, he announced his decision to commit to the Trojans. Five-star RB Raleek Brown of Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei has committed to USC. He was previously committed to...
    REISTERSTOWN, Md. (WJZ) — A student was arrested Thursday following a fight at Franklin High School that sent another student to the hospital. In a letter to parents, Principal Kieran O’Connell said a fight involving two students broke out Thursday morning in the school locker room. O’Connell said one student was injured and airlifted to the hospital, while the other was arrested.

The second student is charged with first-degree assault. Students were briefly held in their classrooms while police investigated what happened, but the school said the rest of the day carried on like normal. Neither police nor the school district released details about the students’...
    More than half of Americans who lost their jobs in the pandemic and remain unemployed are not interested in returning to work, according to a new survey suggesting that the dire national labor shortage is likely to persist. The poll published on Thursday by the US Chamber of Commerce found that 53 percent of Americans who became unemployed during the pandemic say they are not active or only somewhat active in looking for work.  Fifty-six percent say they can get by for more than six months before it becomes essential to return to full time work, with 11 percent saying it will be more than a year before it is necessary to return to work, and 15 percent saying it will never be essential.  No detail was given on whether this cohort was comprised of retirees, or how they'll manage to survive without a job.   The poll is a troubling signal amid a worker shortage that is exacerbating supply chain issues and spurring inflation, with businesses across the country struggling to fill millions of open positions. As of September, the number...
    Electing conspiracy-promoting extremists continues to prove a foolish, destructive idea. In the news today: Another government shutdown battle. What's the reason for this one? It doesn't matter. It literally never matters. In the meantime, Rep. Lauren Boebert is being called out by a Colorado paper for her ongoing, incoherent attacks on a Muslim colleague; former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows is now calling himself fake news rather than standing by the leaked book revelation that Trump had tested positive for COVID-19 before he showed up—and refused to be tested—at the last presidential debate; and a second look at the videos from that period make it pretty clear that Trump was both sick at the time and knew it. Just call him Typhoid Trump? Here's some of what you may have missed: • Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and ...

    Getty Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch of the San Francisco 49ers The San Francisco 49ers are playing an unfortunate game of musical chairs at the safety position. On Wednesday, November 30, the Niners signed safety Doug Middleton to round out their practice squad, releasing safety Kai Nacua to make room. However, just a day later San Francisco designated Middleton to the injured reserve list (IR) and resigned Nacua, who has been on and off the team’s active roster over the past two seasons. The Niners initially inked Nacua in November 2020.

    SAN FRANCISCO — With a potential work stoppage and lockout looming, the Giants are among many MLB teams that aren’t waiting around to sign free agents. After re-signing veteran starter Anthony DeSclafani to a three-year, $36 million deal last week, the Giants announced they agreed to terms with another veteran right-hander, Alex Cobb, on a two-year, $20 million deal with a club option for 2024 on Tuesday. Cobb will earn $9 million in 2022 and 2023 and the Giants will have the choice of exercising a $10 million club option for 2024 or paying the righty a $2 million buyout. Cobb, 34, joins DeSclafani and ace Logan Webb in the Giants’ projected 2022 rotation and boasts an impressive résumé, but has also dealt with injury issues in recent years. Cobb missed nearly all of the 2019 season with a hip injury and only made 18 starts in 2021 due to a wrist issue. When healthy, the former Rays, Orioles and Angels righty has been an effective mid-rotation option and is a proven strike-thrower, which makes him...
    While many in the U.S. have attacked China for its role in allowing COVID-19 to spread across the globe, China is also the primary source of another plague that has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans in recent years: Fentanyl. Opioid and drug overdose deaths skyrocketed 200% in the U.S. from 2000 to 2014, and haven’t stopped increasing since. The country hit a record 63,600 deaths in 2016 and we crossed the 100,000 death threshold for the 12-month period following April 2020, with the majority of those deaths coming from synthetic opioids like fentanyl. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cited synthetic opioids as the cause of death in 62,338 of those 100,000 deaths, adding that the category was “primarily fentanyl.” President Joe Biden has largely focused his administration on combating the COVID-19 pandemic and passing his expansive infrastructure legislation. While he released a statement on Nov. 17 mourning the loss of the 100,000 American lives lost between April 2020 and April 2021, the statement made no mention of China’s role in the opioid crisis. Biden has held...
    Customers wait in line to enter Frontier Fiesta on Feb. 17, 2021, in Houston. A winter storm caused rolling blackouts throughout Houston and the surrounding areas. by Delilah Alvarado This story was originally published at Prism. In February, severe winter storms sweeping across the U.S. caused an extreme power crisis in Texas. People across the state went without power for an average of two days, and some lost access to fresh water for even longer and had to boil the water that was available. Now as the temperature lowers and the winter months approach, Texans who are still feeling the effects of the last blackout are anxiously waiting to see if the weather could cause a repeat of February’s disaster. Efforts have been underway to reform the state’s power grid since the last major storm, but experts say the grid is still vulnerable and could create some future problems. The worst-case scenario considered—fossil fuel outages and very high demand for power—does not capture the amount of power lost in February, along with a lack of winterization for the gas sector, where half of the outages came from. The...
    CHICAGO (WLS) -- With only hours to spare before a midnight deadline, defrocked and disgraced former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich on Tuesday asked a U.S. judge to delay his own federal lawsuit that challenges the state's impeachment process."This motion is necessitated not by lack of diligence, but in part due to plaintiff's work on other matters," Blagojevich submitted in a motion that he prepared and submitted.EXCLUSIVE: Ex-Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich says new lawsuit would open door to run for officeThe motion for a 30-day delay in Blagojevich's response to a state motion to dismiss his lawsuit does not specify his "work on other matters." Whatever has jammed up Blagojevich's schedule is preventing his federal court filing, which was already delayed once and had been due by the end of the day Tuesday. The lawsuit could determine whether Blagojevich may run again for public office in Illinois.RELATED: What ex-governor whispered on plane ride home from prison after sentence commutedAlthough not mentioned, his work on the ABC7/Hulu docuseries "Being Blago" released in early November, did occupy the ex-governor for many days and...
    A Brooklyn homeless man stole a straphanger's iPhone just hours after he dodged bail for robbing another Manhattan subway rider at knifepoint as crime rates continue to rise in lawless New York City.  Agustin Garcia, 63, was arrested three times within 36 hours in a crime spree that began in the Bronx, where he allegedly stole a twelve-pack of Coors Light from a bodega on East 165th Street around 7.30 pm on November 21.  He was charged with petty larceny and turned back onto the street - a few hours later, he was back in handcuffs, according to the New York Police Department.  Garcia robbed a subway rider at knifepoint at the Canal Street subway station around 3 am on November 22, telling her to 'stay back' when she pursued him, police said.  He was arrested, charged with felony robbery, and released again.  Garcia boasted to NYPD cops that he would be released because he 'didn't have a record,' a source told the New York Post.  Manhattan prosecutors asked that Agustin Garcia (pictured) be jailed after both of his subway...
    Kyle Rittenhouse has opened up about his trial, revealing that he knew the 'state didn't have a case' against him when 'they put Dominic Black on the stand.'  Rittenhouse, 18, appeared on the Charlie Kirk Show on Tuesday to discuss his infamous case after he was acquitted earlier this month for fatally shooting two men and injuring another at the Kenosha protests.  During the hour-long interview, the teen discussed the risk of taking the stand instead of pleading the Fifth, but explained he 'wanted the world to know who the real Kyle Rittenhouse was.'  He told the conservative host that he had been 'freaking out' during the run up to the trial, despite his remarkably calm composure in court, but he felt the tide turn in his favor when the prosecution called his friend Black - who purchased the AR-15 Rittenhouse used in Kenosha with the teen's money. He explained that he knew then that there wasn't a case against him because the prosecution was banking on Black to 'lie,' he claimed.  Kyle Rittenhouse has opened up about his trial, revealing that...

    A decision could be coming soon for Kris Bryant and now a new team has entered the sweepstakes in trying to sign him.  Where is stud third baseman Kris Bryant headed next? That’s what everyone is waiting to find out, and there are several teams hoping they land him. The Seattle Mariners have of course been mentioned of late, but now there’s a new club hoping to win out. And that team is Colorado.

    Video has emerged on Tuesday of Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert suggesting Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is a terrorist at another event she attended in September.  She also called two progressive lawmakers 'black-hearted' and said liberals wanted to turn her sons into women in her controversial remarks.  Boebert earned public outrage and calls to be stripped of her committee assignments just last week when she was caught on video making an Islamophobic joke about sharing an elevator with Omar when a Capitol police officer allegedly ran in with them. '''Well, she doesn't have a backpack. We should be fine,''' Boebert recalled while addressing supporters during the holiday break.   She told a similar story in the clip from September, taken at a Staten Island, New York Conservative Party dinner, although this time she claimed to have been in the elevator with a member of her staff. 'One of my staffers, on his first day with me, got into an elevator in the Capitol. And in that elevator, we were joined by Ilhan Omar,' Boebert told her smartly-dressed audience. 'Well, it...

    A 40-year-old South Jersey man has been sentenced to 45 years in state prison in the fatal shooting of someone who gave him a lift from a crash scene, authorities said. Jule Hannah of Bridgeton was found guilty in July of first-degree murder and weapons charges by a Cumberland County Jury, according to Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae. On Jan. 15, 2017, investigators with the Bridgeton Police Department were called out to 406 Spruce Street on a report of a one-car motor vehicle crash. Responding officers found Miguel "Chuito" Lopez Jr., 53, of Vineland, unresponsive in the front driver’s seat of the vehicle, Webb-McRae said. Lopez had been shot four times and died on scene as a result of the gunshot wounds, the prosecutor said. A nine-month investigation was undertaken by investigators with the Bridgeton Police Department and Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office leading to Hannah's arrest, she said. The investigation found that that Hannah was stranded in the area of Monroe Township shortly before the fatal shooting after having been involved in a motor vehicle accident, she said. A motive for the killing was never revealed. Surveillance video from the...
    By David Morgan | Reuters WASHINGTON – A new fault line opened between Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, as lawmakers squabbled publicly over accusations of religious bigotry and racism among party conservatives. In a fight that could further complicate Republican efforts to forge unity ahead of next year’s elections, firebrand congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene on Twitter branded Representative Nancy Mace as “trash” for criticizing Republican Lauren Boebert for remarks about a Democrat that have been decried as Islamaphobic. “@NancyMace is the trash in the GOP Conference. Never attacked by Democrats or RINO’s (same thing) because she is not conservative, she’s pro-abort. Mace you can back up off of @laurenboebert or just go hang with your real gal pals, the Jihad Squad. Your out of your league,” Greene wrote in a tweet early on Tuesday. RINO, the acronym for “Republican In Name Only,” is an epithet often used to criticize party members not seen as adequately conservative. Greene was attacking Mace over a recent CNN interview in which her fellow congresswoman likened Boebert’s remarks about Democratic Representative...
    By Andrew Kaczynski | CNN Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado suggested to a crowd in September that Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, whom she called “black-hearted” and “evil,” was a terrorist. In those same remarks, she said that she felt safe around Omar because the Democrat wasn’t wearing a backpack while they were in an elevator together. It’s another instance in which Boebert suggested Omar, who is Muslim and wears a hijab, was a terrorist. On Monday, the two lawmakers sent dueling statements about a phone call between the pair set up by Boebert after she apologized last week to “to anyone in the Muslim community I offended,” when similar comments surfaced on social media. The video of Boebert’s anti-Muslim comments, made in New York at a September Staten Island Conservative Party dinner, were posted on Facebook that month by an attendee running for borough president. “One of my I staffers, on his first day with me, got into an elevator in the Capitol. And in that elevator, we were joined by Ilhan Omar,” Boebert told the crowd...

    (CBS Baltimore) —  The pandemic continues, long after COVID first shut down the economy in early 2020. The Delta variant is still causing positive cases, albeit at a reduced rate, and the Omicron variant is now making headlines. President Biden has more strongly pushed to encourage vaccines. The economy as a whole has surpassed where it was before the pandemic. Still, shortages and inflation persist, and some people haven’t caught up to where they were early last year, even as unemployment nears pre-pandemic levels, with jobs widely available in certain sectors. Many people are even choosing not to return to the workforce for the time being. But many others still struggle to find suitable work. The federal unemployment bonus ended over two months ago, but millions of people remain short of food and behind on bills. A fourth stimulus check would help. A few places, including California, have recognized the need for more help and provided additional payments. But will the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) be sending out another stimulus check in 2021? That hasn’t been explicitly decided. But many...
    (CNN)Marjorie Taylor Greene doesn't like Democrats. But she may dislike some of her fellow Republicans even more."@NancyMace is the trash in the GOP Conference," tweeted the Georgia Republican about her colleague from South Carolina on Tuesday morning.

    Nurses have whiplash after they are face scrutiny from their families and employers for refusing the vaccine just months after they were showered with praise for risking their health while working through the COVID-19 pandemic.   'A year ago I was a hero, and now I'm being treated like scum,' said Becca Pitt, a 21-year-old nursing assistant in Indiana who intends to fall pregnant within three years and holds fears about the vaccine's potential effects on her fertility - 'we don't know the side effects.' She and two other nurses, one who questions the speed at which the vaccine was produced and another who worries that the jab will affect the quality of her breastmilk, spoke frankly with Suzy Weiss about their recasting as villains since the vaccine became available.  All of them recalled falling ill with COVID during a period where most were quarantining at home while they were deemed 'essential,' and some pointed out the 'absurdity' of being forced to vaccinate when natural immunity is 27 times more effective than vaccinated immunity in preventing COVID infection, according to the largest...

    NORTON (CBS) — A 28-year-old man died after a crash between his scooter and a Honda Accord in Norton on Monday night. Mark Sullivan, who was from Norton, was driving his scooter on North Worcester Street when he and an 18-year-old driver collided.

    Another beautiful listing by South Bay Realtor Rebecca Jepsen — 974 Camellia Way in West San Jose — is a true gem, lovingly maintained by the same family for many decades. The owners originally bought the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home in 1969. In 2005 they rebuilt it from the ground up, turning it into a modern three-bedroom, two-bathroom showpiece that offers an open floor plan, tall ceilings and a fabulous chef’s kitchen. They added approximately 250 square feet that expanded the primary suite and added a huge walk-in closet. They also renovated the backyard pool, created a large covered patio and added a hot tub.
