    The 49ers are back in the playoff picture after taking down the Minnesota Vikings 34-26 for their third straight win. Both teams entered the game 5-5, so the 49ers not only took a one-game lead over the Vikings in the wild-card race, they also collected the head-to-head tiebreaker. San Francisco got the job done on the strength of another big-time rushing attack as Elijah Mitchell led the way with 133 yards on the ground and Deebo Samuel added a 69-yard rush of his own before suffering a groin injury that kept him out for the entire fourth quarter. The 49ers held the ball for more than 37 minutes, but they did not quite reach coach Kyle Shanahan’s goal of 40 rushing attempts, falling one short. Here’s what Shanahan, Jimmy Garoppolo and the rest of the team said after the game: Kyle Shanahan On a conversation with Garoppolo after interception: I just told him the obvious — what he missed and told him to let it go and we’re going to come right back...

    This is not my egg nog, but I'm sure it's lovely also The holidays are here, and that means it’s cooking, and especially baking, season.

    Getty Images A record number of Americans are quitting their jobs, and the hot labor market shows no signs of cooling. With so much churn in the labor force, workers at every job level and across industries have an unprecedented chance to mold their current job into their dream job — or leave and seek it elsewhere. As the country continues to emerge from the pandemic, more than four in 10 workers in the U.S. (42%) say they are "thriving" at work, with about as many (39%) saying they are "coasting," according to the latest CNBC|Momentive Workforce Survey. The survey, conducted among more than 11,000 workers in the U.S. from October 18-25, finds just 15% of workers saying they are "struggling" at work these days.  These numbers reflect an impressive jolt of optimism among a workforce that has been through a year and a half of challenges related to the Covid-19 pandemic: first shutdowns and layoffs, then interminable days working from home.  The reshuffling of jobs that began this summer is leading many workers to rethink their careers, especially those...
    "Life, Liberty & Levin" host Mark Levin questioned what kind of country Americans were leaving their Children Thursday on "Hannity," noting the issues that affect future generations extend further than the teaching of critical race theory. MARK LEVIN: Critical race theory is poison, but it's more than critical race theory. What's being done to your children is outrageous. What kind of a country are we going to leave to our children and grandchildren and generations yet born? This movement is across the board, this radical extremist movement. I'll give you some examples: the debt. Who's going to pay this debt? We actually have mornic statements coming out of the president and the Democrat party that they're going to spend trillions in debt, but it doesn't create debt. In fact, it's going to help eliminate the debt. This is how stupid they think we are. That's not true, they want to expand Medicare, which will destroy Medicare. Well, who's going to pay for that? Your children and your grandchildren. This massive entitlement.  Education, it's indoctrination, it's racism, it's a radical left...

    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) highlighted the danger of gain of function research after it was revealed that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s division of the National Institutes of Health partially funded cruel experiments on dogs. Paul warned that gain of function is “very, very dangerous research” and wondered what would happen if future leaked viruses had a “15% or 50% mortality” rate. “Dr. Fauci still says it wasn’t gain of function because we did not know in advance this was going to happen,” Paul advised. “So, they are doing experiments by combining unknown viruses with viruses that cause pandemics, and they don’t know what they’re going to get, and so Dr. Fauci says, ‘Well, that’s OK. It’s not really gain of function unless gain of function occurs.’ But it’s like, really? We’re going to let them experiment with pandemic-causing viruses and unknown viruses? This is very, very dangerous research.” He continued, “I’ve been calling for an investigation in two full committees for over six months now. Not one Democrat has allowed one hearing to develop.

American Jim Torney spent two weeks in Wilder's Alabama training camp helping in preparation for the trilogy bout. 6Deontay Wilder twice floored Tyson Fury in their trilogy fightCredit: Getty Images - Getty 6Jim Torney after sparring with Deontay Wilder Torney perfectly matches up with the Gypsy King's 6ft 9in and 19 stone frame, so was an ideal sparring partner.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Southwest Airlines is the latest major airline dealing with flight cancellations. The company canceled more than 2,000 flights over the weekend, including about a quarter of their flights on Sunday. It’s been a record year for cancellations. So what kind of compensation should consumers expect when it happens? Good question. READ MORE: No Charges Filed In US Marshal Task Force's Fatal Shooting Of Winston Smith In UptownOver the past year and a half, air travel has changed in some obvious and not-so-obvious ways. “They don’t give out as many snacks as before, so that’s terrible,” said Ashley Morales, who was flying from the Twin Cities to Texas on Monday. But that is a minor inconvenience compared to what Southwest travelers are going through. Kyle Potter is executive editor of Thrifty Traveler, a Minnesota-based travel website. He said when flights hit a standstill last year, airlines needed to get smaller so they retired planes and issued lay-offs. The COVID-19 pandemic also caused many workers to leave. The problem now is that people want to travel...
    SAN FRANCISCO — The Giants head to Los Angeles with their National League Division Series against Dodgers tied at a game apiece after absorbing a 9-2 loss at Oracle Park on Saturday night. A night after everything went right for the Giants in Game 1, it was a much different story in Game 2. The Giants couldn’t get the big hit when they needed one — when Brandon Crawford did deliver in the sixth inning, Dodgers right fielder Mookie Betts threw out Wilmer Flores at third to end the inning — and the Dodgers broke the game open against the Giants’ usually rock steady bullpen.

    Former FBI official Frank Figliuzzi said that looking at the requests from the Jan. 6 committee it appears they know what they're looking for. Speaking to MSNBC host Joy Reid on Wednesday, Figliuzzi explained that it isn't going to be a smoking gun for some email that Donald Trump fired off, because it isn't what he does. However, "there must be some predication here," said Figliuzzi. "I do not believe — and certainly if we use the model of a prospective entity — that they would just willy nilly send out this kind of shotgun request without reason to believe — at least a reasonable cause to believe — that there were such communications or may have been such communications from the White House to these parties or vice versa." He explained that after a president leaves off, the National Archives is given all of the information and documents from the administration for archiving purposes. So, official devices and official communications would be captured in the documents there. "That doesn't mean that personal phones, personal computers and communications aren't being...

    Simone Biles is one of the first world-renowned athletes to publicly prioritize mental health over competition — but the Tokyo Olympics certainly isn't the first event where an athlete has felt a toll on their mental health. Former Team USA gymnast Nastia Liukin said what Biles did isn't just important for fellow athletes, but for everyone watching. "It was something that I will forever be so proud of her for doing because, you know she has set such a great example, obviously for everything she has done on the competition floor, but in my opinion, even more so off of the competition floor," Liukin told CBS News. "And what she did here, putting her mental health and her safety first, was something I think a lot of people can learn from."

    A flooded area in Xinxiang city, China Unless you’re talking about the amount of rainfall (156” a year in County Kerry) or the politics along the northern edge, Ireland isn’t generally thought of a country of extremes. In terms of weather, the average temperature in January is around 46° F, while July runs 67° F. Damp, cool, and green the year round is a pretty good description. Only as The Times of London reports, Ireland this week went tropical. This week brought new record highs three days in a row, More than that, it brought Ireland it’s first every “tropical day,” one in which temperatures did not fall below 68° F at night.  And that is an appropriately cool, green, Irish intro into a week that seems to be anything but cool or green elsewhere.  In the Western U.S., the current conditions are more hot and red, with an amazing number of acres currently on fire.

No one should be surprised by this. For decades, scientists have been ringing the alarm bell about anthropogenic climate change. Over 30 years ago, NASA scientist James Hansen told the U.S. Congress that the “greenhouse effect is here.” And long before then, in the 1800s, scientists like Svante Arrhenius calculated that doubling the amount of CO2 that was in the atmosphere in 1895 would lead to global warming of 5 to 6 degrees...
    Life on the Planets: NASA has been detecting life on other planets for a long time because there are so many missions going on at the moment. Now a study has found out what kind of planetary life there is. Many factors contribute to planetary life (NASA Life on Another Planets Study) – Index Image Life on the Planets: In addition to Mars, the US space agency NASA is exploring the possibility of life on planets such as Venus and Saturn. NASA-funded study has found the answer to the question of what kind of planetary life is possible. Exoplanetary planets (planets outside our solar system) with a slight inclination on the Earth-like axis are likely to have complex life due to the potential of the oxygen-rich atmosphere, the study said. The first Exoplanet was discovered in 1992, about 30 years ago, when it was believed that the life of a planet depended on many factors. The planet must be in the Goldlock region, so water is available and there must be oxygen in the atmosphere for advanced life like...
    Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) bluntly explained Republicans’ legislative strategy as a minority party until the 2022 midterm election: chaos and obstruction. In a newly surfaced video dated June 29 from a Patriot Voices event, the congressman explains the state of play on Capitol Hill vis-à-vis the infrastructure plan being hashed out in Congress. Roy said Speaker Nancy Pelosi “is just tacking hard to the left,” and that he’s waiting to see what kind of bill emerges from the Senate. “We have no idea where they are,” he said of the Senate negotiations.
