    New York (CNN Business)The US jobs recovery has picked up steam again in the final months of the year, bringing some good news in the face of persistently rising prices and a new Covid variant.Economists polled by Refinitiv expect another sizable jobs gain in Friday's November employment report — 550,000 positions. If that holds true, it would be the biggest monthly gain since July, when more than a million jobs were added.But even so, America's labor market is still not back to its pre-pandemic strength. If the forecasts are right, the nation would still be down more than 3.5 million jobs compared to February 2020.On Wednesday, ADP Chief Economist Nela Richardson said the recent strong numbers show "good potential for the rest of the year." ADP's own private payrolls report showed 534,000 jobs added in November.Read MoreMeanwhile, weekly claims for unemployment benefits fell last month below their pre-pandemic numbers for the first time since the recovery started, dropping below 200,000 to a level not seen since since 1969. In the latest Labor Department data, they were revised even lower to...

    More than 100 people filled the dining room at Ararat Nursing Facility to celebrate Thanksgiving. Children and grandchildren embraced their loved ones. Friends in wheelchairs sat beside one another chatting in Armenian. Residents rose from their seats to dance to “Hey Jan Ghapama,” an Armenian song written about a stuffed pumpkin dish. At one of the tables in the Mission Hills nursing home, 82-year-old Anahit Papiryan danced as best she could from her wheelchair, throwing her hands up in the air and turning them from side to side. At times, she kissed her granddaughter Ruzanna Grigoryan’s hand. “You’re the light of my life,” Papiryan told the 34-year-old in Armenian. Papiryan, originally from Yerevan, immigrated to the United States more than 30 years ago. “You’re my heart,” responded Grigoryan, who wore a blue surgical mask to keep her grandmother safe. The Thanksgiving scene was a far cry from last year, which consisted of limited outdoor visits and calls from behind windows to protect vulnerable nursing home residents amid a surge of COVID-19 cases. Gone was the COVID unit...

    CHELSEA have been warned Sevilla will not sell star defender Jules Kounde on the cheap. The Spanish club have dismissed claims they are broke and their president Jose Castro insists there is no need for them to sell Kounde. 1Chelsea failed to sign Jules Kounde in the summerCredit: Getty Castro told AS: "To say that the club is broke is ridiculous. “Last season we had a surplus, after a season without season tickets, without ticket sales. “The deficit would have been resolved by selling Kounde and we showed that we are economically powerful and we will not accept €50m. "To say that Sevilla is broke is to not have affection for the club.” Castro was responding to former Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido's claims the club have major financial problems. Chelsea reportedly made a £43million offer for the France defender in the summer. But Sevilla dismissed the bid and were holding out for an offer in the region of £60m. The 22-year-old defender has a £68.5m release clause and Sevilla are not willing to let him leave...
    Will Anderson Jr. thought a close call against Florida would be "a real eye-opener" for Alabama at the time. Now, he's not so sure the message sunk in. Not after the fifth-ranked Crimson Tide lost 41-38 to a Texas A&M team that had been on a two-game losing streak. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "I don’t think it was taken seriously," Anderson, Alabama's star linebacker, said Monday. "I mean, as you can see, after Florida — which was a close game — we end up losing this game. "I think together as a team we really just have to focus. I think that’s the biggest thing," Anderson said. "I just feel like as if it’s really nothing else other teams are doing, I just think it’s just us, we’re in our own way right now." Alabama (5-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) dropped from the No. 1 spot and left no margin for error in its league title and playoff ambitions entering Saturday night's visit to Mississippi State (3-2, 1-1). Texas A&M climbed back into the poll at No....

Head coach Ron Rivera, who worked with Vermillion in Carolina before both men came to Washington last year, declined further comment on Monday by pointing to the statement. During a Tuesday appearance on 106.7 The Fan, Rivera was asked about a visit from federal agents to the team’s facility related to the investigation.

Among the execs who will be hitting the halls of the Barcelona International Convention Centre in early October is Phil Clapp, a hugely respected figure who sits as head of the U.K. Cinema Association and president of Europe’s International Union of Cinemas. It’s been an almost indescribably tough 18 months for the exhibition world, but in discussing the U.K. experience since theaters reopened, Clapp offers a very welcome voice of hope. Not only did the crisis not lead to the existential threat so many were first fearing, he tells THR, but admissions are creeping back up to pre-COVID levels and, with No Time to Die on the horizon, exhibitors may finally see the incremental...
    WE haven’t quite got the hang of this Brexit lark yet, have we? Brexit was meant to signal the end of our reliance on a limitless pool of cheap foreign labour that suppresses wages and forces British workers on to welfare or into low-paid employment. 8The Government must take a grip on Brexit, which was meant to signal the end of our reliance on a limitless pool of cheap foreign labourCredit: AFP 8But it is not happening as its cack-handed solution to the shortage of ­qualified HGV drivers is to offer miserly three-month visas to European lorry driversCredit: PA At the same time, leaving the EU was meant to set us free to make the UK an open nation that truly embraces the world, welcoming the skilled foreign workers that we DO actually need to power our economy.

The Jaguars lost by at least 10 points in each of their first three games, but their fourth outing came down to the wire. The Bengals wiped out Jacksonville’s four-point halftime lead, but the Jaguars went back up by a touchdown before surrendering the final 10 points in a 24-21 loss that head coach Urban Meyer called a heartbreaker. Before the heartbreak, rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw for 204 yards, ran for a touchdown, and didn’t turn the ball over in the best performance of his short NFL career.

    Marc Benioff, founder, chairman and co-CEO of Salesforce, speaks at an Economic Club of Washington luncheon in Washington, DC, on October 18, 2019.NICHOLAS KAMM | AFP | Getty Images Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff said on Tuesday that there's no returning to the pre-pandemic workplace. "I'm sorry to all my friends, but we're not all going back," Benioff said in an on-stage interview at the Code Conference in Beverly Hills, California. Benioff's pronouncements on the future of the office are particularly notable since his company's gargantuan 61-floor tower in San Francisco opened just over three years ago. The company also has large buildings in cities including Indianapolis, London New York and Tokyo. Those were all constructed before Benioff had 18 months to see how his effectively his company and others can operate with employees working from home or in other remote locations. "We have almost 75,000 people now," Benioff said. "They're not in their towers. We built these gorgeous towers. They're mostly at home, and that's fine." In July, Salesforce closed the $27.7 billion acquisition of Slack, its largest purchase...
    (CNN)When President Joe Biden announced in the spring his plans for "once-in-a-generation investments in our nation's future," he said that "it is not enough to restore where we were prior to the pandemic. We need to build a stronger economy that does not leave anyone behind -- we need to build back better."That is our shared vision -- the vision the American people voted for -- and it is what we as Congressional leaders must deliver with urgency. (From left) Rep. Jayapal, Rep. Omar and Rep. Porter are members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced her intention that the House vote this week on a transformative economic package and a major investment in infrastructure. Congress now faces a choice: advance the entirety of an agenda that gets American families the help they need, or deliver only a fraction of it. That's why we, as leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, remain committed to voting for the infrastructure bill only after the Build Back Better Act is passed. We lead one of the largest ideological caucuses in the...
    Maher suggested that Goldberg completely missed his point. Maher said he was not defending the "Star-Spangled Banner," but was instead promoting the use of a single national anthem and the idea that "segregating by race is bad." "Symbols of unity matter. And purposefully fragmenting things by race reinforces a terrible message that we are two nations hopelessly drifting apart from each other," Maher explained. "That's not where we were even 10 years ago and it's not where we should be now." New Rule: Don't Segregate the Anthem | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO) www.youtube.com Maher went on to say that supporting two national anthems is basically arguing for "separate but equal." "If we have two anthems, why not three? Or five? Why not a women's anthem? A Latino anthem? A gay, trans, Indigenous peoples, an Asian Pacific Islander anthem? Because 'I'm not dealing with you, I'm not speaking to you' is not a way you can run a country and most people of all backgrounds understand that already and don't even want to try to do...
    Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the State Department is doing "accountings on the back end" as Afghan evacuees arrive in the United States while some raise concerns about the vetting process.  Blinken, during a press conference in Qatar, said the Biden administration focused on getting as many individuals out of Kabul and planned to focus on a vetting process after safely evacuating Afghanistan.  "In our effort to get as many people out as fast as we can while we had the airport functioning, we focused on doing just that," Blinken said, adding that State Department officials are "doing accountings on the back end as people arrive in the United States."  BIDEN OFFICIALS 'WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK' TO 'VET ALL AFGHANS' BEFORE ENTRY INTO US "My expectation is we will have a breakdown of the numbers of people who left Afghanistan, including not just American citizens, but green card holders, SIV applicants, SIV visa holders, Afghans at risk, those eligible for P-1 and P-2 visas," Blinken said. "All of that will be forthcoming in the days and weeks ahead as...
    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a fierce critic of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, insisted the U.S. will eventually send troops back to the country to deal with the threat of terror. In an interview with the BBC, Graham praised former President Donald Trump for maintaining the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan. Trump himself pushed to withdraw from the country, but set the deadline for May 1, after President Joe Biden had taken office. “Whether you like Trump or not, whether you believe it’s Trump’s fault or Biden’s fault, here’s where we’re at as a world: The Taliban are not reformed, they’re not new,” Graham said. “They have a view of the world out of sync with modern times. They’re going to impose a lifestyle on the Afghan people that I think is going to make us all sick to our stomach.” “But most importantly, they’re going to give safe haven to Al Qaeda who has ambitions to drive us out of the Mid East writ large and attack us because of our way of life,” he continued. “We will be...
    On the morning of September 11, 2001, 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists successfully hijacked four California-bound planes, with the intention of crashing them into iconic buildings.  By 9.30am the World Trade Centre, one of New York City's most famous landmarks, had been hit, hundreds killed and many more trapped in the floors above. Flight 77 had been hijacked and was en route for the Pentagon; Flight 93 also had terrorists at the controls. Al-Qaeda's mission was going exactly to plan. 9.31am: Terrorist Ziad Jarrah is at the controls of Flight 93. He is out of breath after struggling with the pilots as he attempts to speak to the 33 passengers on board over the intercom, but as he is unfamiliar with the controls he inadvertently transmits his message to air traffic control instead: 'Ladies and Gentlemen.  Here the captain, please sit down keep remaining sitting. We have a bomb on board. So, sit.' But there is no bomb — his aim is to crash the plane on either the Capitol or the White House. Firefighters and emergency crews at the scene...

    Buckhead City Committee CEO Bill White’s movement to deannex his wealthy suburb from the crime-ridden city of Atlanta is making progress, he told SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Saturday. White, coming off of just launching the logo for the hypothetical Buckhead city on Friday, told host Matthew Boyle the idea of cityhood — which has surfaced periodically out of resident frustrations over the past decade-plus — is now more realistic than ever. “When you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, you’ve got to organize,” White explained. “I think sometimes it just takes some people, and we have all these great volunteers, subject matter experts, even people who work for the city of Atlanta who are helping us to set up our city. So we’re not a fly by night, willy-nilly, knee-jerk organization.” Listen: White throughout this year has been spearheading Buckhead’s cityhood pursuit, a grassroots movement that has transformed into a serious effort as violent crime remains high in Atlanta and state lawmakers and donors exhibit support for his proposal.

    Leon Panetta said on Thursday that the Unites States military will have to return to Afghanistan to tackle terror threats posed by Taliban and ISIS-K after a suicide attack killed 13 U.S. troops and at least 90 Afghans. Paneta, a Democrat who served as Defense Secretary in the Obama administration, said in an interview with Erin Burnett for her CNN show OutFront that the withdrawal of American troops left the United States in a 'very dangerous and difficult situation.' He was asked if he believed it was right for the Biden administration to stick with the August 31 deadline for removing American troops from the war-torn country.  'The bottom line is, our work is not done. We're going to have to go after ISIS. I'm glad the president said we're going to hunt them down and pay a price for what they did in killing our warriors. And we should,' Paneta said. 'We're going to have to go back in to get ISIS. We're probably going to have to go back in when Al Qaeda resurrects itself, as they will,...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Friday that the U.S. is “not going to lock down our economy” or schools again because it’s in “a much stronger place” than months ago. After the release of the latest jobs report, Psaki was asked by one reporter if Americans “should expect an economic slowdown” because of the spread of the Delta variant. “This is not March 2020 or even January 2021,” Psaki responded. “We’re not going to lock down our economy or our schools because our country’s in a much stronger place than when we took office.” “We are not going back. We are not turning back the clock.” As of this posting, the CDC reports that the U.S. is very close to reaching half of the entire country being fully vaccinated. Over 70 percent of adults have gotten at least one dose, and that includes over 90 percent of all seniors. You can watch above, via the White House. Have a tip we should know? tips@mediaite.com
    ABC political director and analyst Rick Klein called out the Biden administration for what he called "mixed messaging" following the president's new COVID-19 guidance, which Klein argued was a "backslide" from comments the president made a few weeks earlier. President Biden announced last week that federal workers would be mandated to get vaccinated or undergo weekly testing, wear masks and practice social distancing. His remarks came on the heels of the announcement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, citing concerns about the new delta variant, which is reportedly more transmissible than other variants, urging fully vaccinated individuals in some areas of the country with "high" or "substantial" COVID-19 transmission to once again mask up indoors. CDC'S NEW MASK GUIDANCE FOR FULLY VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS LEAVES SOME EXPERTS DIVIDED  Klein argued that at this point the White House's "reservoir of good will" has run dry. And it couldn't come at a worse time, he suggested, as this is a time when the country is looking for "national unity."  "You can blame the virus for being confusing and adjusting," Klein said...
    In city after city, the left’s draconian coronavirus restrictions are coming back Sean Hannity warned on his show Monday, after Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested that bringing back mask mandates is "under active consideration," and that he is "part of the discussion" around the decision.  "Two months ago, it was Joe Biden who proudly declared a policy of ‘vax or mask,’ the "Hannity" host said. "Well, now the CDC is considering a revised new, new, new policy of vaccination and a mask. How many more mixed messages will the American people be given?  One mask, two masks, no mask, some mass, mask indoors and mask outdoors and maybe mask in perpetuity and now it is never mind what we said before?  FAUCI SAYS NEW MASK MANDATES UNDER ‘ACTIVE CONSIDERATION’ "And remember," he continued, "according to Democrats, the media mob and the great flip-flop Dr. Anthony Fauci, well, life is supposed to return to normal for vaccinated Americans. That's what they told us." Fauci was questioned by CNN anchor Jake Tapper on Saturday over whether he was part of conversations with top health officials on whether to impose a nationwide mask mandate for vaccinated Americans, and whether he thinks...
    ARSENAL captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has had a woeful afternoon in front of goal against Rangers. The Gunners are taking on Steven Gerrard's Scottish champions in a pre-season friendly at Ibrox. 2Aubameyang only managed to find the back of the net 15 times across all competitions last season, and has started pre-season missing three sitters against RangersCredit: GETTY IMAGES Aubameyang had an opportunity to open the scoring in the 9th minute after breaking into Rangers' penalty area. But the Arsenal captain leaned back and ballooned his shot over Allan McGregor's crossbar. And just minutes later, the Scottish champions took the lead through Leon Balogun. The Gunners got themselves level thanks to a debut goal by Nuno Tavares, and Aubameyang was gifted another opportunity to find the back of the net. The ball was floated into the penalty area from out wide on the right-hand side. Aubameyang got up well to meet the cross, but made a mess of his header heading the ball into the ground and wide of the post. And just before half-time Aubameyang completed his hat-trick of...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) this week suggested women are key to fulfilling President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, although she did not reference conservative women whom her side routinely dismisses. “So we have to make the bill greener, to be more for this century than last century which is — we have to make it more — President Biden says it so well. Build Back Better. Build Back Better,” the 81-year-old lawmaker said during a discussion on current infrastructure talks and the radical left’s agenda: And building back better means that we do so in a way that’s of the future in certain respects. Of course the greener aspects of it, the broadband aspects of it. But also, who is involved in the prosperity of it all. And that’s why we have the jobs piece and the family —  the cares piece of it which says if we’re going to Build Back Better, we have to have workforce training, workforce development so many more people can be involved, and we have that in what would be our next...
    The nation's top infectious disease expert says Americans fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need booster shots. In an appearance on MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports on Tuesday, Dr Anthony Fauci discussed a potential federal authorization of a third dose of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine. However, after Pfizer met with officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Monday, the agencies issued a joint statement saying immunized Americans don't need a third dose at the moment. Fauci said he agreed with the federal health agencies because there is not enough evidence to suggest protection from two-dose vaccines fade. 'We're not there yet and that's what the CDC and FDA meant when they came out with their joint statement,' he said. 'They looked at the data in real time. So they'll be examining data as it comes in from other sources taking into account the Pfizer data.'  Dr Anthony Fauci said on Tuesday (above) that Americans fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do need booster shots Early data released last week showed...
    ARSENAL fans are despairing - and the season hasn't even started yet. The Gunners are playing a pre-season friendly at Hibernian tonight - but got off to a shocker. 5Eddie Nketiah found himself one-on-one with the Hibernian keeper 5The Gunners striker gets ready to fire an effort at goal 5But incredibly Nketiah dragged his effort wide of the post Tough miss by Eddie Nketiah in Arsenals first friendly of the season. pic.twitter.com/F97lmXQAXU— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) July 13, 2021 First, on five minutes, Eddie Nketiah was the benficiary of some shocking Hibs defending and found ghimself one-on-one with the keeper. But somehow the 22-year-old strike managed to place an effort the wrong side of the post. And it was Hibs who took the lead 20 minutes in - with a goal young keeper Arthur Okonkwo will have nightmares about. The 19-year-old was making his debut for Arsenal - but completely fluffed his kick out from Sead Kolasinac's back-pass. Martin Boyle benefitted from Okonkwo's air-shot to tap into an empty goal. Unsurprisingly, Arsenal fans were not impressed, with many writing 'we're back'...
    DALLAS - Conservative Latinos pushed back at an MSNBC contributor's claim that Latino voters are in a "crisis" because so many have distanced themselves from the Democratic Party and voted for President Donald Trump in 2020. "What we're seeing right now is a cultural identity crisis that we are undergoing as a community that is completely splitting and dividing Latinos," MSNBC contributor Paola Ramos said earlier this week.  Mercedes Schlapp asked a group of conservative Hispanic leaders to respond to Ramos' charge during the panel, "Common Values, Common Interests & Common Culture: How Conservative Latinos Will Influence the Future of American Politics" at last weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference. Is it true their community was facing a "crisis," Schlapp wondered. MSNBC CONTRIBUTOR COMPLAINS OF ‘CRISIS’ AS LATINOS MOVE AWAY FROM DEMOCRATS "No, absolutely not," said Betty Cardenas, the Republican National Hispanic Chairwoman. "We are waking up. I think the Latinos are finally waking up."  Maria Salinas Miller and Bianca Gracia of Latinos for America First were also quick to refute the MSNBC contributor's assertions.  "Yes, it's a crisis for the...
    Three-time NBA champion Danny Green played just 77 games with the Philadelphia 76ers this season, almost exclusively in front of a limited capacity crowd because of Covid-19 restrictions. But that was enough for Green to realize what he dislikes about Philly fans. Green was asked by NBC Sports Philadelphia’s John Clark about the impact playing in the City of Brotherly Love and their passionate fan base can have on an athlete. “It has an effect on everybody,” Green said on the Takeoff with John Clark podcast. “And I think that’s something that needs to change in the city. I love our fans, but when things aren’t going well, they can turn on you. That’s the one thing I would disagree with or dislike. Some guys use it as motivation, some guys have a chip on their shoulder, but I think that needs to change. They need to be riding with us, regardless of how things are going.” The City of Brotherly Love does not offer unconditional love. But they’re not alone, few sports fans provide their teams...
    Many doctors have claimed that the only way to get the COVID-19 pandemic under control in the U.S. - especially in the face of highly infectious variants - is to not only vaccinate adults, but also children. And so, thousands of parents have stepped up and have volunteered their babies, toddlers elementary schoolers and teenagers to undergo vaccine clinical trials. For some parents, the idea of enrolling their children in the studies on kids being conducted by Pfizer and Moderna seems unnecessary because 0.1 percent of all COVID-deaths have occurred in those under age 17. For others, they told CNN the decision to join the trials was an easy one. One family said they volunteered all three of their children because they believe vaccinating youngsters is the only way to reach herd immunity. Another set of patents said their son made the choice himself to enroll in the clinical trial because he wants to go back to school in-person, attend birthday parties and go on summer vacation. The Bui family of Louisiana enrolled all three of their children's -...

Anticipating a whole lot of confusion, she then goes on to break it all down. She writes: "He was my first love so we had a baby. "Then he started cheating on me with my cousin. The only person I could think to talk to about it was his dad. 5The nurse has ended up married to her step-son - who she previously fell in love with aged 19Credit: TikTok/@tangerinemuch "His dad helped me get away, but at the same time we fell in love.

    President Joe Biden pushed back on the assertion that he was on friendly terms with Chinese President Xi Jinping during Wednesday's press conference in Geneva, Switzerland.  Biden was asked by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy if Biden would call Xi 'old friend to old friend, and ask him to open up China to the World Health Organization investigators who are trying to get to the bottom of COVID-19.'  'Let's get something straight,' Biden replied. 'We know each other well. We're not old friends. It's just pure business.'  President Joe Biden answered questions on the way out of his Wednesday presser including one from Fox News' Peter Doocy about pressuring the Chinese to open up the country to World Health Organization investigators looking into the origins of COVID-19  Biden pushed back on Doocy's assertion that his relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping was friendly saying Wednesday: 'Let's get something straight.

    Slumping Yankees are almost back to .500: ‘We’re going to find out what we’re made of’ Andres Chavez June 14, 2021 Share on facebook Share on twitter Share on reddit Share on email After a frustrating 7-0 loss against the Phillies and a series in which anything went their way, the New York Yankees are almost back to .500. They currently sit 33-32, in fourth place of the American League East division, in a season in which most experts, fans, and media thought the Bombers would lead comfortably. The Yankees, as Brett Gardner explained to MLB.com, take “a couple of steps forward, a couple of steps back.” The situation is worrisome to the point that the Bombers, if the season were to end today, would miss the postseason, with everything that represents. Domingo German allowed seven runs in just 4 1/3 innings in Sunday’s finale of a two-game set against the Phils. He conceded that he had no control or command of his fastball, curveball, and changeup. “I feel like everything was bad...
    Donald Trump has issued a speech vowing to 'take back the Senate, House and White House' ahead of his first speech since February. In a video shared shortly before the former president's appearance at the North Carolina Republican Convention in Greenville Saturday night, Trump said: 'I wanna thank everybody for the tremendous support you've shown.  We're going to take back the Senate, take back the House, we're gonna take back the White House and sooner than you think its going to be really something special. 'But the love and the affection and the  respect that you've given all of us. It's really important. The Republican Party is stronger than it's ever been and it's oging to be a lot stronger than it is right now. We're going to turn it around, we're going to turn it around so much.'  A leaked excerpt of Trump's blockbuster speech shared with DailyMail.com will see him claim that the very survival of America depends on Republicans winning big in the 2022 midterm elections. Trump will say: 'The survival of America depends upon our ability to...
    (CNN)This summer is bringing back a lot of what we used to call "normal," including greeting long-lost friends and maskless strangers. For many of us it's long overdue. But for people still anxious about socializing after more than a year in isolation, the rituals around greeting someone can be nerve-wracking. Do you go in for a handshake? A fist bump? An awkward little wave?A year ago, health experts seemed to declare the handshake dead. But that was back when most people knew little about the novel coronavirus and no vaccine was in sight. So now that the pandemic is in retreat in some parts of the world, is it time to give the handshake another shot?Read MoreLike many questions that have come up over the past 15 confusing months, there is no explicitly right or wrong answer. But we've learned a lot about the virus since the world first went into lockdown, so maybe it's time to revisit the question.Why do we shake hands in the first place?It's not clear how exactly the practice of shaking hands began, but it...
    Fourth of July isn’t the same without a live fireworks show’s colorful bursts and glittery fizzles — and the crowd’s dazzled “ohhs” and “ahhs.” It’s a tradition about as American as apple pie. Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered large venues where professional fireworks shows are often held. Pasadena’s historic Rose Bowl stadium pivoted its long-standing annual AmericaFest to online and ditched the pyrotechnics. But this year the stadium is bringing back the show, now in its 95th year, and at least some of the crowd. The family-friendly event is set to literally “pop off” 19 days after California’s economy is set to largely reopen on June 15. Pasadena Councilmember Steve Madison, who represents the area where the stadium is located, announced the show’s return Monday night at the tail end of a City Council meeting. “This will be an exciting event, not just because of Independence Day, and what that means to all of us but also [it’s] a bit of a coming out for the Rose Bowl, to welcome that back to the city,” said Madison, who is...
    Rudy Giuliani says the wave of anti-Semitic attacks in the US in the wake of the renewed Israel Palestine conflict is reminiscent of Germany in the 1930s. The former Mayor of New York said the violence would not have happened under Donald Trump and is a response to the 'march to socialism' of the Joe Biden administration. Pro-Palestinian protesters have beaten up Jewish people and chanted 'death to Jews' in ugly scenes which Giuliani said is the 'biggest story in the country'.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said 'we're back' on Friday when asked about a series of events this week where attendees were seen hugging, kissing and shaking hands.   'Yes, I can confirm we are a warm and fuzzy crew, and we like to hug around here,' Psaki answered. 'But we were waiting for that to be allowed by CDC guidelines, which we certainly abide by.'     Last Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention nixed mask-wearing for those vaccinated against COVID-19, except in some situations.  'We're back,' said White House press secretary Friday in response to a question about a series of events on campus this week where people were mask-less and hugged, kissed and shook hands Since Friday, reporters in the White House press briefing were able to go mask-less if they had been vaccinated against COVID-19.

    The White House will not vet people to determine if they are vaccinated against COVID-19 before permitting them inside the executive mansion. White House press secretary Jen Psaki declined to use the term "honor system" on Friday, saying that it was "confusing." Instead, she repeated the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance that suggests the best way to guard against COVID-19 is to get immunized or wear a mask. "That's not the role we're going to play," Psaki told reporters. AWKWARD MOMENTS LOOM FOR MISTAKE-PRONE BIDEN AFTER PANDEMIC Later in the briefing, she reiterated that a federal government-led effort to verify inoculation against COVID-19 is "not in our intended plan." The White House welcomed the most people through its gates this week since President Joe Biden was inaugurated amid the pandemic. The East Room, for instance, was crowded with more than 50 mostly maskless people twice, once for the signing of the bipartisan COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act and again for a Medal of Honor ceremony celebrating retired Army Col. Ralph Puckett Jr., a Korean War veteran. Aides and...
    HE’S the Prime Minister of modern rock ’n’ roll, the mastermind behind the most brilliant tracks of a generation and one of the most cuttingly observant minds in music, so I’m thrilled to reveal Noel Gallagher is back doing what he does best. The guitar legend will today unveil a brilliant return with new single We’re On Our Way Now. 4Noel Gallagher is releasing new single We’re On Our Way NowCredit: Matt Crockett It is a trademark melancholy guitar anthem that couldn’t be more unmistakably Noel if it was donning round shades and a Union Jack guitar while slagging off brother Liam. Dripping in swagger, the verses darkly recount the passing of a friend without the opportunity to properly say goodbye, before a more upbeat bridge and chorus reflect more positively on the premise of being at peace. He sings: “Remember what might have been, had I walked you home and said I’d see you later? You were living the dream, but when the morning comes, you’re gonna meet your maker. “Good luck in the afterlife.” 4Noel has a TV...
    People have been opting for comfort over style during lockdown, and for many women that's amounted to not wearing a bra when they don't have to leave the house to work or socialise. And after more than a year to get accustomed to the feeling of going braless, many have sworn not to go back to wearing underwear as life goes back to normal.   One Instagram model from London told Femail that she doesn't think bras are 'necessary' anymore, while another woman urged people to opt for what's 'comfortable' after she stopped wearing 'painful' underwired bras. It comes as women across the world have been taking to Twitter and Instagram to reveal that they have binned their bras during lockdown to be comfortable while spending more time at home. Here, FEMAIL reveals why bra wearing could be an unexpected casualty of the pandemic. I FIND BRAS IRRITATING BECAUSE THERE ISN'T A PERFECT FIT Jodie Weston, 27, from London, stopped wearing bras just weeks into the first lockdown last year and now plans to stop wearing 'irritating' bras after lockdown...
    Randy DeSoto, The Western Journal April 15, 2021 0 Comments The National Republican Congressional Committee reported last week that it shattered the record for its largest-ever off-election-year monthly haul by $3.6 million. The NRCC raised $19.1 million in March and $33.7 million for the first quarter of 2021, according to a news release. The House campaign arm of the GOP further stated it ended the quarter “with $29.7M cash on hand which is a 57% increase over the same point last cycle.” The NRCC also said it is debt-free and had an average grassroots donation of $32.70. “Republican voters are motivated to fire Nancy Pelosi, stop Democrats’ socialist agenda and take back the House,” NRCC spokesman Michael McAdams said in a statement. .@tomemmer on why the NRCC’s record-breaking fundraising numbers prove Republicans are in position to take back the House & defeat @SpeakerPelosi‘s socialist agenda in 2022 ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/ZJw4wxxcQx — NRCC (@NRCC) April 14, 2021 These numbers also show reports of the GOP’s demise in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion were greatly exaggerated in the...
    Ruth Alcantara stepped closer to her grandmother. Then closer, and closer still. She crossed into the six-foot buffer zone that had separated them for so long and wrapped her arms around the older woman. “Hola, abuelita, le extrañe mucho,” she said, inches from her grandmother’s ear. Hi, grandma, I missed you so much. She felt a kiss on her forehead. Her throat constricted with emotion. As more Americans are vaccinated against COVID-19, reunions among loved ones are becoming increasingly frequent and, for many, hugging is the main event. First routine, then forbidden and now precious, hugs have come to symbolize the next phase of the pandemic, our emergence from the isolation of the past year. Simply put: Hugs can’t be given from six feet away. California ???? Hugs are making a comeback. ???? You told us about your first post-vaccine hugs ???? California ????

    The Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt resurfaced Tuesday after two months out of the public eye for a friendly interview on the group's YouTube show, signaling the disgraced organization is not heeding calls to shut down. "We're in a tough business, and it can be brutal, and Lincoln Project has had a tough couple of months at times, and we're going to be in this fight," Schmidt told LPTV's "The Breakdown." "We're going to be back fully operational in our attacks on the extremist, anti-democratic movement ... We're going to be o (MSNBC) n offense and we're going to take the fight to people who deserve to have the fight taken to them." Despite calls by many, including Schmidt's fellow co-founder George Conway, to shut down after a humiliating series of reports detailing personal and financial corruption in the anti-Trump organization, The Lincoln Project has soldiered on with its brand of trolling tweets, vitriolic ads, and vicious attacks toward Republicans it deems an enemy of democracy. Appearing to acknowledge the calls to dissolve, "The Breakdown" co-host Tara Setmayer, who once flirted with leaving the organization herself,...
    SACRAMENTO —  My first thought when Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that California would fully reopen for business and pleasure on June 15 was: Why not May 15? Or April 15? Newsom has been too slow in allowing Californians to resume normal life, I’ve long thought. Too hesitant to restart indoor dining, permit wedding receptions and demand that schools welcome learning-deprived students back to classrooms. It was an ominous sign about a year ago when the governor tried to close all beaches in the state. As I wrote then, every Californian has an unalienable right to a day at the beach. Facing a revolt by sand-and-surf worshipers, Newsom backed down and negotiated with local communities. He has allowed single-minded health experts to all but run the show. Their sole agenda was vanquishing COVID-19. But in a democracy, no single sector should be given a free hand to dictate policy. People collectively have many agendas. When we lean too heavily on the pandemic’s unofficial watchword, “science” — which is perpetually changing anyway — other factors are reduced to low priority. Factors such...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Loyola fans gathered in Rogers Park in Chicago on Saturday afternoon to watch the Ramblers make their second Sweet 16 appearance in the past four years.
