    Louisiana officials expect to receive almost 40,000 doses of a new type of COVID-19 vaccine the first week it is available, which could be as early as next week. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has declared the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine safe for emergency use, likely paving the way for authorization as soon as Friday. Dr. Joe Kanter with the Louisiana Department of Health said Thursday he expects the state’s first allocation to include at least 37,000 doses on top of the state’s share of the two already approved vaccines, which next week is expected to total a little less than 100,000 doses. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires a single dose to get the full benefit, rather than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines. It also is less delicate and easier to store, which creates more options for distribution, Kanter said. ...
    LIVERPOOL are doing everything in their power to keep Mohamed Salah from the grasp of LaLiga giants by making him their highest paid player. The Egyptian superstar has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Real Madrid having refused to rule out a switch to the European giants. 2 But they'll have to pull out the cheque book if they plan on offering a salary higher than his current pay packet at Liverpool. Salah, 28, earns £200,000-a-week meaning his annual salary is worth a whopping £10.4million every year. The forward still has a contract at Anfield until the summer of 2023 and will earn around £24m from now until that expires. Second on the list is summer signing Thiago Alcantara who earns £192,308-a-week. The midfield maestro was a snippet at £20million but it could afford the Spaniard to demand a high wage fee. Roberto Firmino and...

Much of this success was due to Niantic taking timely measures to allow users to enjoy the gaming experience from home. The company achieved this through measures and temporary bonuses that granted more items and today one has just returned that will make many trainers happy because it will constantly supply them with very useful items. Niantic announced in March last year that it would offer Pokémon GO players weekly packages with a lot of items that could be obtained almost as gifts, since they would only cost 1 Pokécoin, something that is practically nothing in the game.

    Donald Trump has less than a week left in office and Sarah Cooper is feeling reluctantly hopeful. “I'm really excited. I'm really happy,” she tells me in this preview of next week’s episode of The Last Laugh podcast. “There’s still a part of me that's like, is it really over? Could it really be over?” The comedian, who became wildly famous over the past year posting brilliantly realized lip sync videos of Trump on social media and later an ambitious Netflix special, says she “won't be able to breathe a sigh of relief until Biden has his hand on the Bible.” But she is “feeling more hopeful” than she did in the first few weeks after the 2020 election. “For a while I was still very scared,” she says, “but I’m getting less scared every day.” When I ask Cooper if she has a parting message for Trump, who won’t...

    Here’s the crazy thing: Five wins might actually get this done. It’ll probably take six. God, it should take six. It’s all but impossible to believe that the weekly pillow fight that is the NFC East could accept a home playoff game with a team bearing a 5-11-1 record, or 6-10. But them’s the rules. That’s the law. The Giants and their division mates didn’t make those rules. They just get to benefit from them. The Giants? They’ll get to benefit from 13 days off.

    TYSON FURY'S promoter Frank Warren has all-but given up sorting the trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder for this year. But the 68-year-old is desperate to get the WBC heavyweight champ back in the ring before the year is out and will sit down with the Gypsy King next week to sort a plan of action. 5Deontay Wilder's trilogy fight and chance of revenge against Tyson Fury doesn't look like happening this yearCredit: Getty Images - Getty After he was battered by Fury in February, Wilder accepted a rematch. But the American had to have surgery on his bicep, and seems to have gone quiet on sorting it out for 2020. And Hall of Fame promoter Warren thinks no crowds due to coronavirus restrictions could put paid to Part III happening this side of Christmas. Speaking to BT Sport, Warren said: "He wants to fight for obvious reasons, he's been training...
    Heading into a debate that could be one of Donald Trump's last chances to try to land a lasting blow on Democratic rival Joe Biden, the fundamentals of the race haven't changed much in the last couple months. Biden is ahead nationally by about 7-9 points, give or take, depending on the poll. Trump's war chest remains depleted, while Biden is flush with cash. And rather than expanding the map, the Trump campaign is focused almost entirely on defending states he won in 2016, writes the Washington Post. According to Biden's campaign, the former vice president spent money in 13 states last week, including only three that Hillary Clinton won—Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Nevada. Meanwhile, Team Trump spent in 12 states, with Minnesota and Nevada being the only states he lost in 2016, meaning Trump’s on defense in a total of 10 states.  The Biden campaign is expanding spending in states that weren't originally considered...
    The SEC starts play this weekend and a pair from the conference are on the college football hot seat and a holdover from the Big 12 makes a repeat appearance after a near-upset in Week 3. At long last, the SEC makes their debut in the 2020 college football season. It isn’t officially college football season until the premier conference gets underway. The sport is starting to feel somewhat whole again, even if the Big Ten and Pac-12 haven’t taken the field. That of course means more coaches tempting the fate of the hot seat. There are plenty of coaches in the SEC and around the other conferences in the college football landscape that need to deliver soon or the heat is going to be turned up on them another notch or two. One coach on this week’s list is already feeling the heat after escaping what would have been...

    Gregg Williams saw the potential for domination on Sunday — not of his defense, but by it. Where others witnessed the Jets unit getting overwhelmed most of the afternoon, allowing 404 yards of total offense, getting gashed by Josh Allen for a career-high 312 yards through the air, being unable to get off the field on third down, the team’s defensive coordinator saw promise in the lopsided loss to the Bills. “What could have been a dominant game — had we controlled the pocket — what could have been a dominant game, turned into production by the other team,” he said Friday following practice, forgetting the two gift fumbles by Allen and two missed field goals by the Bills. “[It] turned into extended plays, and if you go back and take a look at those things, it would have been a very dominant game could we have finished...

    Donald Trump’s taped confession during a February interview with Bob Woodward that he knew the coronavirus was “deadly stuff” but blatantly and repeatedly lied about it to the public is hands down the most damning recorded revelation from an American president in U.S. history. Trump, as only he could possibly do, managed to eclipse last week’s bombshell that he disparaged fallen soldiers as “losers” and “suckers” with an even more devastating news story this week. The worst part of the recordings wasn’t just that Trump told mistruths about how lethal COVID-19 was or the fact that kids can contract it—it’s that his own words revealed how vile and sinister he is to the core. Trump knew, but he deliberately blindfolded Americans and led them to slaughter because he didn’t want to panic the stock markets. We know this is true not only because of Trump’s almost singular fixation on the stock market but because of reporting that he “fumed”...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's unemployment benefits are starting to flow for some jobless Americans and are already ending for others.At least a dozen states have begun to pay their jobless residents hundreds of dollars from the Lost Wages Assistance program, which Trump authorized last month. But at least one state, Texas, has already announced the cessation of the weekly boost. The President created the program through an executive action after Congress failed to act on its $600 unemployment benefits enhancement, which expired at the end of July. The measure provides $300 a week to certain jobless Americans using federal disaster relief funds for a limited time. Only those who qualify for at least $100 in state benefits are eligible, and payments are retroactive to the beginning of August.Some 48 states, the District of Columbia and Guam have already been approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, with only South Dakota turning...
    NATICK (CBS) – In a tiny 250 square foot storefront in downtown Natick, a rare and special craftsman is not so busy at work. “Business is almost dead,” said Oleg Abamelak, owner of Cobbler Shop West on Pond Street. He said the coronavirus pandemic decimated his shoe repair shop business. He said on some days he gets no customers in the store. “Usually on Saturday I used to have 20 to 30 customers, last Saturday only four the whole day,” he said. The leftover repaired shoes all set to go tells the story of customers who have left their belongings behind. “We try to survive. I usually have like a bunch of shoes here. I have one or two pair right now. The 90% shoes on the shelf is before corona. In February, it slowed down. I call people every week but very few come to pick up,”...
    As you can imagine, it's not easy working out like the "Homecoming" star. Lara Walsh/Joel Ryan/Invision for Parkwood Entertainment/AP Beyoncé uses a mix of interval training, weight lifting, and calisthenics to stay in shape and build strength and endurance before her shows, according to her trainer Marco Borges and workout videos she's posted.  I spent a week attempting to replicate her workout plan with a soundtrack of Beyoncé songs to keep me going. Throughout the week, I felt incredibly sore and exhausted even though I did feel stronger. I don't know how a normal person would be able to regularly keep up this routine.  The experience taught me the importance of choosing exercises that work several muscle groups at once to make the most of my workout time. I also learned how important it is to build up the strength of both my upper and lower body.  Visit...
    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Social distancing and hygiene measures to rein in the spread of the coronavirus will be in force for upcoming Dutch local and national elections, the government announced Tuesday, creating a possible headache for local authorities who have to organize the voting. Dutch voters are scheduled to cast their ballots March 17 next year in a national election for the 150 members of the lower house of parliament. “Corona will almost certainly still be among us for upcoming elections. But by taking measures these elections can be organized so that it is safe for voters to vast their ballot and for polling office staff to do their work,” said Interior Minister Kajsa Ollongren. Booths will be arranged so that voters can maintain the government’s recommended 1.5-meter (5-foot) social distancing and extra equipment will be provided including screens to shield staff and disinfectant to clean the...
    I (not pictured) tried to stop drinking soda for 30 days. iStock I don't drink soda every day but I recently found myself craving it often so I decided to give it up for a month. Giving up soda was hard at first, especially when I was trying to order my go-to cocktails. By the end of the month, I found I had stopped craving soda.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Growing up, I always treated soda like an occasional treat that was to be enjoyed with particular foods, like greasy pizza and buttery popcorn. Soda was always accessible to me — my mother never banned it from the house or told me not to drink it. As I got older I just began pairing soda with most junk foods, similar to how I would pair red wine with most pasta dishes. I didn't drink soda...
    JACOB Blake is out of handcuffs and police have left his room after a week in restraints in spite of being shot seven times in the back by a cop. Blake, who is now paralyzed, woke up under police guard and handcuffed to his hospital bed in Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee last week, sparking further public outrage. 7Jacob Blake Jr., 29, is reportedly paralyzed from the waist down after being shot by a police officer in WisconsinCredit: Facebook Police in Kenosha claim that Mr Blake was in custody for previous warrants and the handcuffs were policy.

    The complaint used by cops to handcuff Jacob Blake to his hospital bed since they shot and paralyzed him last weekend has been obtained by DailyMail.com, and shows he was wanted for a Class G felony and two misdemeanors.  The 29-year-old was accused of a Class G felony sexual assault - which could carry a maximum 10-year prison term - and two counts of domestic abuse involving trespass and disorderly conduct.  The warrant was dropped Friday afternoon amid outcry at the continued handcuffing of Blake for days after he was shot seven times in the back by a Kenosha police officer.  The move was shortly after Wisconsin governor Tony Evers was asked if Blake being restrained would concern him and said: 'Hell yes.  'He's paid a horrific price already being shot seven or eight times in the back. I can't imagine why that's happening.'  Patrick Cafferty, an attorney representing the...

    TheBlaze founder and 2020 Radio Hall of Fame inductee Glenn Beck issued a public apology to President Donald Trump for doubting him in 2016. Beck made the remarks amid the press surrounding the 2020 Republican National Convention. What are the details? In a series of tweets, the talk-show host wrote, "I am feeling so humbled this week. I feel truly horrible for the things I said and believed in 2016 about @realDonaldTrump. I believed the worst politically, which he proved me wrong at almost every turn. In the most dramatic cases (life/Israel/China/authoritarian)." Beck pointed out that the president deserves to be praised for his handling of the economy during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to researchers at Johns Hopkins University, the virus has infected at least 5,889,652 Americans at the time of this writing, and has caused 181,186 deaths. "I...
    Authorities arrested a man who broke into a Fort Myers, Florida, daycare center and lived in hiding in the attic for at least six days. The daycare workers had noticed that the surveillance cameras were having problems, so when they checked the system they realized that a man was using their facilities as a home. The cameras captured it from August 8 to 14. “I am amazed that it took a week to find this person who was living there, walking through the facility that was full of children,” said Heather Brown, mother of one of the children who attends the daycare.

    If you feel like you can’t sleep, you’re in good company. Or bad, as the case might be. Lack of shuteye has been hitting people in Maryland especially hard during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a study. They’re incurring 24.5 hours of “sleep debt” — described by The National Sleep Foundation as “the difference between the amount of sleep that you need and the amount that you’re actually getting” — per week. That’s more than three hours a night. Ocere.com reached out to 3,000 people for its study and found that Marylanders were losing significantly more sleep than the national average of 21.4 hours. “Contrary to popular belief, sleep debt cannot be re-paid, such as binge sleeping on the weekends,” the company said in a release. “Much like a credit card debt, sleep debt is one that cannot be easily cleared. Eight restorative hours is the recommended amount of shuteye...
            by Tyler Arnold  If Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam opts to expand unemployment benefits by $100 a week per person, it would cost the state an additional $45 million a week, but the unemployment insurance fund already is set to run out of money in September, state officials said. President Donald Trump signed an executive order to extend federal unemployment benefits by $300 a week, but states would have to supply an additional $100 a week, increasing the benefit to $400 a week. The White House later said a state’s current unemployment contributions could count toward the $100, meaning states may not have to increase their payments and people would receive an additional $300 per week. Some governors have said they will or likely will provide the additional $100 per week to the benefit, and many others, including Northam, have waited to make an announcement. “We...
    John Davidson couldn’t look at the television screen during the NHL draft lottery Monday night. But David Quinn did and it nearly landed him on the Rangers’ injured reserve. “I almost pulled a hamstring jumping out of my chair when I saw that ping pong ball shoot up that little shoot there,” the Rangers coach said on MSG Network’s “Around the NHL,” which was set to air at 6:30 p.m. Friday night. “Obviously it was a week of highs and lows. And to then have that happen Monday night, really switched things a little bit. It made everyone feel good.” Quinn’s job got a little easier when the Rangers hit the jackpot with the No. 1 pick and the chance to draft Canadian winger Alexis Lafreniere, who is expected to contribute at the NHL level right away. The lottery luck came less than a week after the Rangers were swiftly...

    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) – Efforts to restore electricity in New Jersey are nearing completion nearly a week after Tropical Storm Isaias tore through the state. The state’s utilities are reporting 6,659 homes and businesses remain without power, down from more than 1 million. Most of the outages are in Morris, Essex, Salem and Bergen counties.

    SAN ANTONIO – The start of the school year for Judson ISD staff and students will be a bit later than expected in wake of the coronavirus pandemic. As cases continue to surge in San Antonio and Bexar County, the Judson ISD Board of Trustees held a special meeting Thursday where they approved an instructional calendar with a new start of school date of Aug. 24. The new start date is almost a week later from the original start date of Aug. 18 and will give staff and students more time to prepare for the school year and gather supplies. The rest of the calendar year will be unchanged, according to school district officials, except for switching the Columbus Day holiday for Election Day, which will be on Nov. 3. The new start date was prompted after JISD staff sent a survey to employees earlier this summer as COVID-19 cases...

    (CNN)Primary elections across the country this week almost felt normal, for a change.Voters in Missouri, Michigan, Kansas, Arizona and Washington state hit the polls, either voting in-person or submitting mail-in ballots, which have increased dramatically during the pandemic. But this week, there weren't systematic failures. There weren't jaw-dropping lines at polling sites. And news outlets even projected winners Tuesday night in some of the tight races.There are a few reasons why Tuesday's primaries didn't devolve into the chaotic and protracted debacles that plagued recent elections in New York, Kentucky, Georgia and elsewhere. Experts tell CNN that election officials are learning from earlier fumbles, and that the laws in states that voted this week make it easier to count the votes faster -- and for networks to project winners."In one state, we might be able to call a 5-point race, and in another state, we won't," said Joe Lenski, co-founder of...
    RYAN FRASER’S decision to walk out on Bournemouth could backfire. The Scot rejected a Cherries deal of around £67,000-a-week — but Crystal Palace are offering closer to £50,000 a week for the winger, who had hoped to earn a move worth at least double that. 1Ryan Fraser did train with the South Coast club before rejecting the chance to play in their relegation battleCredit: Getty Images - Getty Fraser, 26, is available on a free and was being tracked by elite clubs such as Arsenal and Tottenham after his stellar 2018/19 campaign, when he scored seven Premier League goals and 14 assists. After failing to repeat that success, neither club has made a move. It means Fraser’s options could be limited to Palace and West Ham, who are also interested.

    President Donald Trump renewed his push to open schools Wednesday, baselessly claiming that the coronavirus “is going away” and that children are “almost immune.” In an interview with Fox & Friends, the president fielded a question from host Pete Hegseth on bringing students back to class. “My view is the schools should open,” Trump said. “This thing is going away. It will go away like things go away. And my view is that school should be open.” Coronavirus case counts in the U.S. have been averaging approximately 60,000 per day in recent weeks — a total which does not support the president’s claim that the virus is disappearing. Trump went on to say that children are “almost immune from this disease.” “They have much stronger immune systems than we do somehow for this,” Trump said. “And they don’t have a problem. They just don’t have a...
    JUVENTUS stars are reportedly raising eyebrows at the incredible gulf in wages between Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of the squad. With the coronavirus pandemic biting football hard, the sustainability of club finances have come into a stronger light. 3 Having won Serie A, Juventus' stranglehold on Italian football remains but the club is without a Champions League trophy in 24 years. In their pursuit of the esteemed silverware, the Old Lady forked over a huge amount to sign Ronaldo with a £105million transfer fee and £540,000-a-week in wages. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, via Marca, that has caused discord in the dressing room. The next highest-earner at Allianz Stadium takes home almost four times less, with Matthijs de Ligt paid £138,000-a-week. Veteran players Gonzalo Higuain and Miralem Pjanic both earn £130,000-a-week, ahead of £127,000-a-week striker Paulo Dybala. Juve are set for a realignment of sorts this summer with...

              Tennessee saw 25,794 more people file unemployment benefits last week as the coronavirus continues to impact the state’s economy, according to the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development (TDLWD). The jobless claims for the week ending July 18 increased slightly from the 22,431 claims from the previous week. The number of unemployment weekly claims Tennessee has received since May 9 have all been under 30,000. TDLWD data shows that 740,123 Tennesseans have asked the government for assistance since March 15.
