    Steven Rattner became the latest Obama-era economic advisor to hit out against the Biden administration's insistence that inflation is 'transitory.'  'Enough already about about "transitory" inflation,' Rattner wrote for the New York Times. 'Last Wednesday’s terrible Consumer Price Index news shifts our inflation prospects strongly into the “embedded” category.' Inflation has surged to its highest point in 31 years. Prices this October were up 6.2 percent over last October, and raised 0.9 percent in that month alone.  Rattner said he believes interest rates could rise fast enough to trigger higher interest rates, which would in turn stifle growth by making it more expensive for businesses and individuals to borrow money and make investments.   'How could an administration loaded with savvy political and economic hands have gotten this critical issue so wrong?' Rattner questioned. 'They can’t say they weren’t warned.' Rattner claimed that the 'original sin' was the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which directly pumped stimulus money into the demand side of the economy, and was not paid for, effects that were compounded by hits to the supply side with...
    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After self-scouting his team and doing a little preparation on the upcoming game against Tom Brady and the Bucs, New York Giants coach Joe Judge gave himself a little time to relax during the bye week. Judge went to his son’s high school playoff game and then went to a little league football game where a second son plays and a daughter is a cheerleader. Both won. The 39-year-old also got a chance to channel surf NFL games on Sunday before returning to work on Monday. “You’ve got to prioritize and obviously right now, football is very significant in all of our lives,” Judge said before practice. “It’s our job, it’s our career path, but also when the families come around, you’ve got to make sure you take time to carve that time out.” The players had a light day of work in their return. It focused on getting bodies moving again, working on fundamentals and introducing a scheme or two for the final eight games, which start with a nationally televised matchup against the...
    Laura Lentz, the wife of disgraced ex-Hillsong Church pastor Carl Lentz, has spoken out about the 'doozy' of a year her family has had, admitting she has experienced anxiety, depression, and PTSD from the 'trauma' of her husband's transgressions. Last year, Lentz, 42, was ousted from his position as at the megachurch, where he counseled the likes of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, because of reported 'breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.' He soon confessed to being unfaithful to Laura, the mother of his three children, and was later accused of sexual assault. Laura — who was also fired from her position at the church — has now spoken candidly about how difficult it has been, saying she 'wouldn't wish my journey on my worst enemy' but she is choosing to view the emotional scars she's acquired as 'beautiful.' However, she also wrote that she is working to 'focus on my family and grow in my marriage,' confirming reports that she has no plan to divorce Lentz, with whom she has reportedly been seeking 'intense' therapy. Laura Lentz,...

    The Biden administration announced on Tuesday afternoon a host of measures meant to ease supply chain bottlenecks at U.S. cargo ports. Senior administration officials say the initiative will provide immediate- and medium-term relief by funneling billions in new grants into modernization and facilities upgrades at key ports across the country. BIDEN'S UNION ALLIES EXACERBATE THE SUPPLY CHAIN CRISIS First, the administration is directing $8 million to build "pop-up" cargo yards at the Port of Savannah. "Under the plan, the Port of Savannah will transfer containers via rail and truck further inland so that they can be closer to their final destination, which will make available valuable real estate closer to the port," one Biden official told reporters Tuesday morning. "The effort will free up more dock space and speed goods flow in and out of the Port of Savannah, which leads the nation in containerized agricultural exports." Savannah is the No. 3 overall container port by volume in the country, behind the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach, and officials estimated the new upgrades will...

    The COVID-19 pandemic is fading as a top concern of voters and being replaced by the economy and rising inflation, a troubling sign for President Joe Biden and Democrats heading into the midterm elections. Just 12% of adults rated health issues like the coronavirus as a top national priority, down from 20% in February, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found for October.  Meantime, two-thirds of the country, including the majority of Democrats, Republicans and independents, say that 'inflation is a very big concern for me.' The job market is also being closed watched as the poll found that 73% of adults want political leaders to focus on jobs and economic growth. Democrats, meanwhile, are showing signs of panic and asking Biden to deal with this quality of life issues affecting voters.  'We were so willing to take seriously a global pandemic, but we're not willing to say, 'Yeah, inflation is a problem, and supply chain is a problem, and we don't have enough workers in our work force,' Democratic Rep. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia told The New York Times. 'We gloss over that and...
    Rob O’Neill is very confident in America’s ability to conduct military operations, but he thinks some people should just stay out of the way. During my interview with the Navy SEAL who shot and killed terrorist mastermind Osama Bin Laden, I asked how ugly things would get if America took the gloves off when it came to fighting our enemies. However, he thinks the guys in suits are getting in the way and have the wrong priorities. “We’d wipe out Iran in no time…we rolled through Iraq like it was nothing and we could do that to anybody if we wanted to. The problem is we let people in suits, we let attorneys get involved and senior officers that are more concerned about social experimentation than violence,” O’Neill explained to me when I asked how ugly things could get. You can listen to his full comments below. That’s about as blunt as it gets. Our top guys can decapitate any country if we wanted to, but some other people would prefer to focus on “social experimentation,” in O’Neill’s...

He was booed for his play and heard cheers from the same fans when he came out of the game. Throw trade rumors on top of that and you could understand why Engram would potentially want out of New York and a fresh start elsewhere. However, Engram wants nothing of the sort. He’s doing his best to tune out the boos and the trade talk and continue to push forward with the Giants. “I’m not the type of person to want to tap out or be anywhere else just because there’s some adversity or things that aren’t going the way we want them to go in general,” Engram said, via Pat...

Markets are deep in the dog days of August. That means the Federal Reserve and key data, particularly retail sales could provide some direction for stocks in the week ahead. Major stock indices were mixed in the past week, with the Dow and the S&P 500 hitting new highs and the Nasdaq flattish.

    (CNN)In Part I of this series, I introduced you to the concept of breathing as a superpower, capable of impacting almost every aspect of your body and mind. In Parts II and III, I shared how you can use your breathing to move better and sleep better. In this final installment, we look at breathing's role in stress management and concentration. I also share breathing exercises to help you achieve a more focused, calm state of being.Breathing is one of the most effective ways to manage stress because it leverages your own physiology and requires no special tools.

Breathe better to live better: Why breathing is your superpowerIn short, how you breathe matters; the quality of your breathing pattern affects your ability to mitigate stress. In fact, a dysfunctional breathing pattern can fuel your stress response, even when you are trying to use your breathing to calm...

    It's a question that has baffled most men for years – what do women want? Now, a new survey has revealed exactly what females rate the highest when it comes to sexual attraction, as well as what men's priorities are. The findings suggest that while women rate age, income and personality highly, men are more focused on looks. The researchers suggest that these differences may occur as a result of the fact that women's window for reproduction is more limited than men's, so they 'can't risk choosing poorly.'

MARK ROBINSON, R-N.C.: What I would say to those activists is, Pump your brakes and slow down. Let the justice system take its course. Let's take a look at this and find out what's happened.  What they should be focused on is the 7-year-old who was murdered in Hickory right here in North Carolina. What they should be focused on is the 7-year-old who was murdered in Chicago last week. We are seeing murders take place across this nation at an alarming pace. These activists and politicians at the highest level are turning a blind eye. ...

    George Davison, the headmaster at Manhattan's Grace Church School who has spearheaded his institution's antiracism crusade, grew up on a waterfront estate frequenting a country club that didn't have any Black members in one of the richest and whitest enclaves in the country. 'It's like stepping into a scene from the Great Gatsby,' said an occasional guest who's attended several garden parties hosted by the Davison family at the Peacock Point estate, located on the Gold Coast of Long Island.  'There are these amazing views of the Sound, beautiful old homes on these perfectly-manicured grounds, pool, tennis court, its own private beach. It's breathtaking, probably one of the nicest properties most people will never experience,' they said.  What the guest left out was murmured by a character in F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece, set in the same area -  'We're all white here.' Davison, who has led the $57,000-a-year private school for nearly three decades, recently made news when math teacher at his school Paul Rossi accused him and other administrators of indoctrinating students with anti-racism ideology that 'induces shame' in...

    Jimmie Johnson is now less than two weeks away from his IndyCar Series debut. The NASCAR legend is taking on a completely new challenge at the age of 45, and that is bound to come with some doubts and fears. He recently spoke with former NASCAR Cup Series and IndyCar star, Danica Patrick, about his upcoming debut in the IndyCar Series. The seven-time Cup champion admitted that he is fearful, just like anyone else would be in his position. “I think we’re all fearful of not being successful or not being competitive,” Johnson said, in response to a question from Patrick.
