    CNN’s Don Lemon had some strong opinions about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s blockbuster interview with Oprah Winfrey, telling CNN Newsroom anchor Brianna Keilar that the whole British royal family was “built on a racist structure,” but it was something that Harry had to experience for himself for the first time with his wife. No person of color was surprised to hear the couple describe racism within the royal family, said Lemon, because “the system is racist.” “That is what the monarchy is based on: heredity, hierarchy, a caste system, bloodlines,” said Lemon. “And so the whole institution is built on a racist structure. So there should not be a ‘Oh my God, the British family is racist.’ Of course they’re racist. That’s what the entire monarchy is built on. The racism, the family that is supposed to be in it only by birth. And so far by birth it has only been white royals on the British throne.” Keilar mentioned that...
    George Floyd memorial graffiti on the plaza popularly named after him in Minneapolis. It was there that he was assassinated. (Photo: Jim Mone / AP) “I can’t breathe.” They were his last words and, immediately, they became the cry of half the country: George Floyd, allegedly killed by a policeman in Minneapolis, became in his agony a symbol of police violence against blacks in his country, the USA, in an icon of unequal treatment, brutality against those who go beyond white supremacism, injustice and arbitrariness. Today, Monday, March 8, the trial begins against the agent, no longer active, who ended his life. As the court speaks, thousands of people demonstrate through the streets of their city, in Minnesota, to remember Floyd and to protest against the attack of which he was a victim. But what happened? Who is accused? How did a death become a flag for an entire community...
    Bradley Cortright March 8, 2021 0 Comments Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is slamming Republican officials who continue to support former President Donald Trump and says she believes they are acting like a cult.  During an interview with The Washington Post on Monday, Clinton addressed the fact that members of the Republican Party continue to embrace Trump. “It is really troubling to see the Republican Party turn themselves into a cult and basically pledge allegiance not to the United States of America but to Donald Trump,” Clinton said.  Watch the video below: Hillary Clinton: “It is really troubling to see the Republican Party turn themselves into a cult” and “pledge allegiance” to Trump. pic.twitter.com/uzyg1rkkxm— The Recount (@therecount) March 8, 2021 Still, she said, “I’m hoping that the Republican Party will find its soul, will find its center again and understand that they can’t keep playing with fire.” Clinton claimed that Republicans...

    According to sources in the US Congress, the administration of President Joe Biden is scheduled to announce on Monday a decree of temporary protected status that could allow tens of thousands of Venezuelans to remain in the United States with legal status. Miamimundo / LAT The program marks a significant shift in US policy toward Venezuelans, who for most of the Trump administration were denied protection even as President Trump attempted to overthrow the left-wing government in Caracas. His administration also secretly deported Venezuelans despite clamor in Congress for protected status for Venezuelan refugees. Just on his last day in office, Trump issued an executive order deferring the expulsion of Venezuelans for 18 months, but it left them in limbo. An announcement from the White House was expected later Monday, but a staff member in Senator Richard J. Durbin’s (D-Ill.) Office confirmed that administration officials had informed the office in...
    Much has been said about this 8-M being different and especially in the Community of Madrid it has been. The way in which equality has been claimed has been far from that of other years and also from the way in which the feminist movement had planned to do so. But despite the coronavirus pandemic and bans, feminism has struggled to reinvent itself and the demands have not ceased to be present in the streets of Madrid. Aware that on this occasion the Covid prevented the calling of mass demonstrations, the 8M Madrid Commission had opted for the organization of concentrations of no more than 500 people, distributed at different points and respecting security measures. The day, however, started with the Constitutional resolution to maintain the prohibition of all acts of this type. The high court thus corroborated what was said by the Government Delegation first and by the...

    More On: andrew cuomo NYS Assembly Republicans to launch impeachment effort against Cuomo De Blasio again dodges questions on Cuomo resignation Gov. Whitmer backs independent probe into Cuomo Scott Stringer calls on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign Mounting sexual harassment allegations and other claims of inappropriate behavior are increasing the likelihood that Gov. Andrew Cuomo will get impeached if he continues to ignore calls for his resignation. That scenario could put the three-term Democratic governor on trial for his political life — and create a sordid spectacle the likes of which New York has never seen, with multiple accusers potentially offering sworn testimony about unwanted kisses and creepy come-ons. Here’s how the impeachment process works in the Empire State: Impeachment Under Article XIII, Section 5 of the New York Constitution, any public officer is subject to removal for “misconduct or malversation in office,” with the latter term referring to...
    Gov. Ralph Northam shocked Virginians in 2019 when he withstood calls for his resignation, a move that has paved the way for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to do the same in New York. At the beginning, Northam looked like he was doomed. Early in 2019, he seemingly endorsed late-term abortions on a local radio show, a blunder that snowballed into the unearthing of college yearbook photos featuring him dressed either in blackface or as a klansman. Democrats were outraged. Northam faced calls for his resignation from top Democrats ranging from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to former Virginia Gov. Terry MacAuliffe. But Northam, a year into his single, four-year term, refused to resign. The only ground he gave was admitting to dressing in blackface in another instance, an offense to which Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring also confessed. Those twin scandals, coupled with sexual assault allegations leveled at Lt. Gov. Justin...

Karwai Tang/Getty Images Megan Markle said the way the press treated her was different from how they treated other royals.  Markle said "rude and racist are not the same" when discussing the comparisons to Kate Middleton.  Markle said a royal press team defended Middleton but didn't do the same for her. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Meghan Markle made a distinction between the British media's treatment of her and its treatment of Kate Middleton during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s sit-down interview Sunday with Oprah Winfrey might be exactly what the United States needed to destroy the British monarchy forever. Markle and Prince Harry dropped massive bombshells during the interview with Winfrey, although it remains unclear if any of it is actually true. If what Markle and Prince Harry are saying is valid, the British monarchy is now facing some intense allegations. Markle essentially accused someone in the royal family of being a racist, but refused to mention them by name. In fact, Prince Harry said he would never reveal who this person was. The family member in question allegedly raised concerns over the color of baby Archie’s skin tone in “several conversations” with Prince Harry, the couple told Winfrey. #MeghanMarkle‘s conversation with #OprahWinfrey was nothing short of shocking — especially when she revealed that along with her son #Archie being denied a royal title...
    By Daina Beth Solomon MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Women across Mexico geared up for marches to mark International Women's Day on Monday, driven by anger that President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has backed a politician accused of rape at a time when the country is suffering rampant gender violence. Activists in recent days have displayed a purple banner declaring "no abuser in power" across Mexico City's main plaza, renamed streets with women's names pasted over signs and used purple, green and pink on social media avatars. At the national palace, where Lopez Obrador resides, protesters painted the names of hundreds of femicide victims across 10-foot-tall (3-meter) metal barriers that were erected last week to protect the historic building from vandalism during Monday's marches. Activists also projected feminist slogans in bright lights across the barricaded palace facade, including a message saying "a rapist will not be governor," effectively turning the riot...
    Hector Barajas-Varela holds us his naturalization certificate after returning home to the U.S. in 2018. To his right is California Rep. Mark Takano. House Democratic legislators including the chair of the chamber’s Veterans’ Affairs committee have reintroduced legislation that would block the deportation of noncitizen U.S. military veterans, and allow eligible deported veterans to return home to the U.S. Because federal immigration officials don’t follow even their own policy, it’s unknown exactly how many veterans have been kicked out of the U.S. over the years. Advocates have estimated the number to be around 230. “It’s a disgrace that veterans are falling through the cracks of our broken immigration system and being deported,” Veterans’ Affairs chair Mark Takano said, who reintroduced the bill with fellow Californian Juan Vargas and Arizona’s Raúl Grijalva. “Deported veterans are exiled from the country that they call home and that they fought to defend, and they face significant barriers to access the benefits they are entitled to...
    Miami Beach mayor Dan Gelber has said he is 'very concerned' that the thousands of Spring Breakers who have descended on Florida will lead to COVID-19 outbreaks. The Democrat told CNN officials in the city are 'very worried' about a 'real problem in the aftermath' of trips made by college students to the Sunshine State.  His warning comes amid a surge in cases of the U.K. variant, B.1.1.7. Experts predict that is likely to become the dominant strain in the US this month; the strain currently makes up 30 to 40% of what is being seen in communities across the country.  Four weeks ago, the B.1.1.7 variant made up about 1 to 4% of the virus.   Michael Osterholm, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told NBC: 'Let me just say we are in the eye of the hurricane right now.

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham in a new interview compares Donald Trump to the famous American showman P.T. Barnum – and stated that his golf partner and friend could 'destroy' the Republican Party. Graham made the comments in an Axios interview where he reflected on his own failure to temper his support for Trump even after the Capitol riot – and spoke of Trump's ability to either build up or tear down the party he has effectively coopted.  'Mitt Romney didn't do it, John McCain didn't do it — there's something about Trump,' Graham reflected. 'There's a dark side, and there's some magic there. What I'm trying to do is just harness the magic.'  'He can make it more diverse. And he also could destroy it,' Sen. Lindsey Graham said of what Donald Trump could do to the Republican Party 'To me, Donald Trump is sort of a cross...

    Drew Angerer/Getty Images I am afraid it’s much worse than we realized. Our nation is terminally divided, and there is not but one single issue that separates us. This is a deep division, one that transcends even politics. It is a foundational fight, a culture war writ large, a disagreement without end. And that’s why this past presidential election solved nothing. The raging of the cancel culture is becoming a caricature of itself. Ironically, the progressive impulses of the whole woke movement make almost no distinction between Democrats and Republicans. The Klan is as noxious to the cancellation crowd as is any centrist. Even their natural allies — the moderate members of their own party! — are too sullied for inclusion. To be woke is to be at war with anyone who doesn’t fanatically toe your line. No one gets a pass. Even Abraham Lincoln, apparently, failed his racial justice...

    By Belén Carreño MADRID, Mar 8 (.) – The Spanish government plans to grant € 5 billion ($ 5.9 billion) in direct aid to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and another € 1 billion in capital injections as part of its latest aid package against COVID-19, according to a government source. The President of the Government, the socialist Pedro Sánchez, announced on February 24 a package of 11,000 million euros in aid to SMEs, especially aimed at the punished hospitality sector, without giving more details on how the money will be disbursed. The remaining 5 billion euros of that total would come in the form of restructuring of state-guaranteed loans contracted by companies since the start of the pandemic, the government source told .. Government and financial sources affirmed last week that the debt reliefs will not be mandatory for banks and that they will be applied through a “code...
    JUPILLES, France (Reuters) - In a former royal forest, tree surgeons on Monday began felling centuries-old oak trees which will be used to rebuild the wooden-framed spire of Notre-Dame de Paris after it was destroyed by fire. The lead-coated spire, which for more than 150 years had defined the central Paris sky line, was consumed by the blaze in April 2019, collapsing through the stone vaulted roof to the tears and gasps of distraught onlookers. President Emmanuel Macron announced last summer that the 96-metre (315 ft) spire would be reconstructed as originally designed by Eugene Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century, launching the hunt for the 1,000 oaks required to build the spire and the frame of the cathedral's transept. "It's exceptional," Aymeric Albert, the forestry commission's commercial director, said of the sawn trunk of one-rod-straight 200-year-old oak. "It's perfectly straight and without any internal defects." The trunk was large enough...
    The orange and black "super straight" flag has become a symbol for the movement. Twitter/Rodem "Super straight" started to trend on social media as some users have claimed it's their sexual orientation.

Over the past week, some people online have been openly referring to themselves as "super straight," causing the term to trend across various social media platforms.

    PARIS, Mar 8 (.) – European Union soy imports in the 2020/21 season that began in July totaled 9.94 million tonnes through March 7, according to data released Monday by the European Commission, a rise from 9.70 million tons shipped to the same week of the previous season. As of January 1, the European Commission data refer only to the 27 EU countries, while the figures as of December 31 also covered Great Britain. The change reflects London’s departure from the bloc’s customs union in late December, following its formal departure in early 2020. EU rapeseed imports in 2020/21 reached 4.67 million tonnes, up from 4.55 million tonnes a year ago. Meanwhile, soybean meal imports so far this season stood at 11.74 million tons, down from 12.45 million tons a year ago. (Reporting by Forrest Crellin. Edited in Spanish by Javier Leira)

    (Bloomberg) – Argentine inflation-linked bonds fell on Monday after it emerged that the country’s statistics institute, Indec, plans to modify the basket it uses to measure inflation. Bloomberg News reported early Monday that Indec is working to change the price basket it uses to measure inflation, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter. The modifications, which seek to reflect changing consumer habits, are planned for 2022, after this year’s legislative elections, to avoid conflicts of political interest. The country’s inflation-linked discount bonds due 2033 fell 2.1% and Boncer bonds due 2026 fell 1.3% at 9:07 a.m. in New York. “The news of a possible change in the composition of the IPC portfolio in 2022 is very bad for the entire IPC curve,” said Pedro Siaba Serrate, fixed income strategist at Portfolio Personal Inversiones in Buenos Aires. “The market consensus assumes that this modification would be biased towards...

    John Schnatter, the founder and former CEO of pizza chain Papa John’s appeared on OAN to reject charges of racism against him, claiming he’s been working “for the last 20 months” to “get rid of this N-word” from his vocabulary. OAN host Kara McKinney asked Schnatter, who was accused of saying the N-word while speaking on a company conference call in May 2018, why he has been the target of “heinous” and “evil” attacks. McKinney was likely referring those at Wasserman Media Group, whom Schnatter sued, along with 247 Group, for breaching a contract by recording and leaking information from the May 2018 call. Schnatter accused Casey Wasserman, head of Wasserman Media, of merely being jealous of him, as Schnatter is a right-leaning self-made man. The former CEO also noted that several Papa John’s board of directors also benefited from kicking Schnatter out of the chain, claiming it led to a gain of...
    We cannot say – even after a crisis supposed to generate a world after – that the feminization of companies is a given. There are the speeches and then there is the reality. Not always synchronous. On the side of Michel Ferrary, researcher affiliated with Skema Business School and member of the High Council for Equality between Women and Men, we collect a lot of data, mainly by looking at CAC40 companies. Enough to feed the Observatory of the feminization of companies, which he founded. An observatory that publishes a study every year that draws a sort of robot portrait of what diversity and inclusion is, in the real life of these large companies. A study looked at even a little closer, the year of the ten years of the Copé-Zimmerman law. And obviously, if the law has its effect, there is still progress to be made, mentalities and...
    Labor unions and socialist groups are whipping up support for a Democratic bill that would crush right-to-work laws in 27 states and that critics say mirrors a controversial state law that imperiled thousands of jobs in California. The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act of 2021 is slated to be brought to the House floor for a vote this week. The bill contains many controversial provisions and aims to end states' right-to-work laws, among other provisions. The PRO Act also includes a provision similar to the controversial Assembly Bill 5 that gutted California's gig economy when it was enacted by the state government last year. Left-wing groups are mobilizing online in support of the bill.  PRO ACT THREATENS RIGHT-TO-WORK LAWS: CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, NATIONAL RIGHT TO WORK COMMITTEE The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) launched a national campaign in support of the bill on Sunday, featuring author Naomi Klein and Rep....

    AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM) – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has called on the Texas Public Utilities Commission (PUC) and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) to correct the emergency pricing error that continued after the power shortage ended and the major threat to the Texas grid passed during last month’s winter storm. “We are continuing to investigate the power outages of the February 15 arctic blast which plunged millions of Texans into darkness,” said Patrick in a statement, “This is the right thing to do and it is one step we can take now to begin to fix what went wrong.” READ MORE: CDC Issues First Set of Guidelines On How Fully Vaccinated People Can Visit Safely with Others Here is the rest of his statement: “In response to grid-wide power shortages starting February 15, the PUC ordered ERCOT to institute the $9,000 per megawatt hour cost cap, which is designed to...
    Protests have erupted outside of Trump Tower in Manhattan, after Donald Trump returned to his New York skyscraper for the first time since leaving the White House. Demonstrators on Fifth Avenue held signs reading 'Arrest Trump' and 'Florida Man Go Home' on Monday morning, after Trump arrived in New York solo on Sunday for reasons that remain unclear. It comes as Trump faces a widening criminal probe into his business dealings in Manhattan, which began as an investigation into hush money payments to two women who claimed they had affairs with Trump, and has expanded to examine potential tax, loan and insurance fraud at the Trump Organization. Monday's demonstrators, who numbered about a dozen, toted a giant inflatable caricature of Trump as they gathered outside of his flagship property, where he previously lived with Melania and son Baron before taking office in 2017.

    President Joe Biden does not want to abolish or reform the Senate filibuster, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced Monday. Reporters questioned Psaki on Biden’s filibuster stance during Monday’s press briefing. Many Democrats have have called for abolishing to rule to allow them to use their razor-thin majority to pass legislation. Psaki confirmed that Biden still opposes removing the filibuster and clarified that he does not want to reform it either, as Democrat West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin has proposed. (RELATED: Sen.

    The rescue plan should boost US growth this year by three percentage points to + 7%, said Monday Gregory Daco, chief economist at Oxford Economics. “American households will be the engines of the recovery,” he said, noting that low-income families will benefit from “generous budget transfers totaling about $ 900 billion”, including direct checks, additional unemployment benefits as well as credits and relief. taxes. High-income families are expected to spend some of the excess savings accumulated over the past 11 months. “This is the package of aid we need to revive our economy and put it back to pre-pandemic levels,” US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen responded on Monday on MSNBC, on the eve of final examination of the bill in the House of Representatives. The US Senate finally approved the economic rescue plan on Saturday, but without a Republican senator’s voice, after bitter discussions and a marathon vote on...

    Boris Johnson flatly refused to take sides in the row over the extraordinary Harry and Meghan row today as Downing Street insisted he has not even watched the bombshell interview - while Labour demanded a Palace probe into claims of racism. The PM batted away questions about his views on the dramatic intervention by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as he hosted a No10 press conference this evening. Mr Johnson said he had the 'highest admiration' for the Queen and the 'unifying role' she played for the UK and Commonwealth.  But he added: 'I've spent a long time not commenting on Royal Family matters and I don't intend to depart from that today.'

    Next1 of 4Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse The Miami Heat are healthy and trending up but they’ll still need an offensive upgrade for a deep playoff run. Where could they look for help? Things are definitely looking up for the Miami Heat. After injuries and absences wracked their rotation early in the season, they’re finally starting to get healthy and build momentum. They’re 7-3 over their last 10 games with a defensive efficiency mark pushing the top-five in the league. However, their offense has still been roughly league average and an upgrade at that end should be a major goal at the NBA trade deadline. The problem for the Heat is that they don’t have a ton of draft assets or redundant depth with which to spin a deal. Almost any scenario will require them giving up a rotation big like Kelly Olynyk, a young scorer like...

    Bird watchers flocked to New York City's Central Park this week to catch a glimpse of a fluffy snowy owl — the first snowy owl sighting in the park since 1890. But what the owl's fans might not know is that back home in the Arctic, its habitat is seriously threatened.  While the owl's spotting in the city was a rarity, snowy owls regularly flock to parts of New York to escape the Arctic and subarctic winter tundra. They're usually spotted along the coast and at airports, looking for flat, treeless lands that mimic their home.  In the Arctic, the birds are apex predators feeding off small animals like mice, rabbits, and most often, lemmings. The abundance, or lack thereof, of these rodent populations dictate the snowy owl's fate.  Without healthy lemming populations, the owls cannot thrive, said Scott Weidensaul, a naturalist and author who co-founded Project SNOWstorm, a...

    On Friday, the United States will reenter the Paris Agreement, a climate treaty dedicated to lowering greenhouse gas emissions in more than 180 countries around the world. It was originally signed and negotiated during the final years of the Obama administration, withdrawn from by President Trump in 2020, and reentered by President Biden on his first day in office. The drafting of the agreement took place at the 21st Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, also known as COP21. The treaty was originally signed by 175 countries, and included commitments from the world's leading CO2 emitters: China, the United States and the European Union. Today, 189 parties representing 97% of global emissions have joined, according to the World Resources Institute. The agreement's objective is to prevent the global average temperature from warming beyond a point of catastrophe, defined as "well below"...
    Republicans are shrugging off former President Donald Trump’s cease-and-desist orders not to use his name in fundraising efforts, sending out weekend emails inviting supporters to donate money to defend his legacy. Last week, it emerged that Trump had sent cease-and-desist letters to the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee warning them not to use his name or likeness to raise money. It is a strategy he has used throughout his business career to protect his brand. Yet he finds himself up against a political movement that came to rely on his star power and has no intention of giving up its best fundraising draw. “You have been selected as one of the first to be invited to claim your Trump Legacy Membership,” an RNC fundraising email sent on Sunday said. “As a Trump Legacy Member, you will be a key player in...

    The words of an activist of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, Stefan Bauer, shock across the Rhine. And for good reason: he compared the vaccines against the coronavirus to Zyklon B, gas used by the Nazis in concentration camps during World War II. “Let’s not hope anyone is planning to set up a concentration camp here again. Not even for people who refuse vaccination or who do not want to be tested. … we don’t need another Zyklon B, be it AstraZeneca or BioNTech “, did he declare. In a press release, the Mauthausen concentration camp memorial says it rejects these comments. “The Mauthausen Concentration Camp Memorial condemns the instrumentalization of millions of Nazi victims to push through a political agenda unrelated to their experience of suffering. Such comparisons in the context of Covid 19 measures speak either of of appalling historical ignorance, or of...

The House is expected to vote Tuesday on the Senate's version of the bill, which includes several key changes from the legislation initially approved by the House — including stricter eligibility limits for the $1,400 stimulus check and no $15 minimum wage increase.  House Democrats aim to approve the measure in time for Biden to sign it into law before Sunday, when two federal jobless aid programs expire, leaving millions of Americans without an income.  Take a closer at the specific provisions included in the American Rescue Plan, and the measures that didn't make the cut.

    BOSTON (CBS) — What are people naming their dogs in Boston? Licensing data from 2020 just released by the city shows what the most popular dog names are. Luna is the No. 1 name in Boston, according to the list, followed by Bella, Charlie, Lucy and Lola. The reason behind releasing the most popular names is to encourage dog owners to license their pet ahead of the annual March 31 deadline. Dog adoptions have increased since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, and dogs in Boston need a new license every year. “A license is your dog’s fastest ticket home if they become lost, and it’s the law,” said Animal Care and Control Director Alexis Trzcinski in a statement. “A dog license is like an ID for your pet. If they ever get lost, the chances of you being reunited are much higher with a license.” The fine for not...
    A kids' TV show featuring completely nude adults answering questions about the human body has sparked fury in Holland. A promotion for the programme called 'Simply Naked', which is set to be televised by the public broadcaster NOS, showed a group of adults disrobing in front of an audience of children.

    A husband has been arrested after the remains of his newlywed wife were found in his back yard - and after he taunted officers, urging them to 'find the body'.

Police say the marriage was part of a 'quid pro quo' that saw Mullet get citizenship in return for looking after Colon's elderly mother, who has dementia.

    Oregon is the Pac-12’s regular-season champion, but USC is the postseason betting favorite, according to the latest odds from BetMGM. The Trojans are +150 to win the conference tournament this week at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, meaning a $100 bet to win the title would generate $150 in profit. It’s the equivalent of 3/2. Next up is Colorado, at +200 (or 2/1). Then comes Oregon, at +350. The odds are the reverse of what you might expect given Oregon’s sizzling finish (five consecutive wins). None of the top betting sites view the event as wide open, with only the top-four teams given a realistic chance to collect the trophy. The full odds: USC: +150 (3/2) Colorado: +200 (2/1) Oregon: +350 (7/2) UCLA: +400 (4/1) Stanford: +2000 (20/1) Arizona State: +2500 (25/1) Utah: +3300 (33/1) Washington State: +8000 (80/1) Oregon State: +10000 (100/1) Cal: +20000 (200/1) Washington: +20000 (200/1) And...
    After spending the entire 2020 season in the Majors, Abraham Toro has a new goal: to keep playing. He will be able to take his place and achieve his goals in 2021, including scoring 20 home runs. To do that, it should start at training camp right now. We will remember that his big camp in 2019 just laid the foundation for his last month of the season in August. Apparently, he is able to repeat his 2019 record so far at the Astros camp. In recent weeks we have seen him become easier. It happens defensively (he often plays on the third floor, but he trains on and off the first floor) and offensively. After a very scary batting season, he was able to perform better in camp (what’s still a small sample, we agree). Yesterday, he made his first camp, and he had his third hit of the...

    STIMULUS payments could soon be on their way to millions of Americans after the Covid relief bill was passed. A fresh check worth $1,400 is expected to help get people through coronavirus. 1Millions of Americans will get a third stimulus paymentCredit: Getty Images - Getty The third stimulus payment will have new criteria from previous checks, though some parts are still to be decided. What we do know so far is that if the stimulus is approved without any changes, income limits are likely to change. That's because some politicians want the money to be more targeted and it also means changes to how dependants are counted. Here's everything you need to know about the third stimulus check.

    Erbil, Iraq (CNN)When Pope Francis greeted adoring crowds at an Erbil stadium for the final leg of his Iraq tour on Sunday, he showed up in an open-air vehicle. He did the same when he toured Mosul earlier, waving at a handful of onlookers against the backdrop of buildings destroyed during the war against ISIS. The images that flashed on TV screens seemed a far cry from the Iraq of recent decades. Western heads of state and VIPs typically show up unannounced, with their itineraries a closely guarded secret. This has been standard practice in Iraq since the 2003 US-led invasion. Francis flew back to Rome Monday and this trip has struck an entirely different note. The visit was announced nearly three months in advance. As violence intensified and coronavirus cases increased in Iraq, so too did the Pope's resolve to carry on with the tour.It was the 84-year-old pontiff's...

    Retiring Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt. On Monday, Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt became the fifth Republican senator to announce that he would not seek reelection in 2022. Blunt’s decision came as a surprise as his spokesperson had said in November that the senator would be seeking a third term, though Blunt himself sounded a bit less sure the following January. Blunt’s decision will set off an open seat race in a former swing state that has swung hard to the right during the 21st century. Donald Trump took Missouri last year 57-41, while Republican Gov. Mike Parsons won reelection by that very same margin against the only Democrat who holds statewide office: state Auditor Nicole Galloway. Blunt himself only scraped by in 2016 49-46, but Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill lost reelection to Republican Josh Hawley two years later 51-46 despite the 2018 blue wave. It remains to be seen if Blunt’s departure will...
    Economists, often referred to as “the dismal scientists,” are teetering on ebullience about the future. The upbeat assessments come with the usual abundance of caveats (“the economic path will be determined by the ability to quell the virus,” “not every sector will be back on its feet by the summer”), but the combination of accelerated vaccine Jill Schlesinger  distribution, trillions of dollars of emergency federal spending, warm weather, pent-up demand, and low interest rates equals a new roaring twenties for the US economy.

    The end of the AEW Revolution PPV was a bitter disappointment. AEW promised us a bang, but we witnessed a mere whimper of an ending. After a wonderful main event where two of the best wrestlers in the world clashed, AEW stank the joint with a horrible ending. Tony Khan, however, saw this as an opportunity to create a storyline.

Moxley previously mentioned that the exploding barbwire deathmatch might be an excellent way to ride off into the sunset. The Good Brothers and Omega had the same thought.

    Of the 331 people who have requested the free babysitting service launched by the Barcelona City Council in October, only one is male, a sample of the inequalities between women and men in regard to childcare.
