    We celebrate Christmas "because God gave us the gift of His son to show us the way toward salvation," says Lauren Green in the new book All American Christmas by Rachel Campos-Duffy and Sean Duffy.  It's an important point that often gets lost in all the hustle and bustle associated with this time of year. Fortunately, co-authors Rachel Campos-Duffy and Sean Duffy have devoted an entire section of their new book to the real reason we celebrate Christmas.  "All American Christmas" by Rachel Campos-Duffy, along with her husband, Fox News contributor Sean Duffy, is available now.  In a section of the book called "The Joy of Faith," the Duffys share their own strong faith beliefs and practices as they raise their nine children to know and understand the religious meaning of Christmas.  In addition, they've invited other Fox News personalities, contributors, and staff to share their beliefs, stories, and convictions about Christmas as well. Some of the Duffy children are shown honoring the true meaning of the Christmas season. This photo and many others appear in ‘All...
    London (CNN)The Covid-19 pandemic will not last forever.It will likely continue to fizzle and fade as it heads towards its third year, resurging with new variants and then waning in the face of vaccines, mitigation measures and human behavior. But even if the virus is never stamped out, immunity will improve and the world will eventually be able to live with Covid.On that, experts generally agree. "The large majority of infectious disease specialists think, and have thought for many months, that SARS-CoV-2 is here to stay," said Paul Hunter, professor in medicine at the University of East Anglia in the UK."Our grandchildren's grandchildren will still be catching (the virus)," he said. But "Covid, the disease, will become part of our history as the infection morphs into just another cause of the common cold."There is, however, a far more pertinent question, the answer to which is frustratingly elusive: How long will it take to get there?Read MoreAnd that answer is not up to luck -- it is, at least in large part, within our hands. Pandemics fade out of view as...
    Prince William has revealed that he was engulfed by a dark cloud of anguish and depression after witnessing the aftermath of a devastating accident. In a remarkable display of candour, the Duke vividly describes how his torment left him feeling as if 'the whole world was dying'. His mental health crisis came after he helped to save the life of a gravely injured boy only a few years older than his son, Prince George, while working as a helicopter pilot for the air ambulance service. In an extraordinarily frank podcast to be released tomorrow, the future King describes how he was deeply affected by what he experienced that day. Overwhelmed by depressive feelings, he says it was as if 'something had changed' inside him. Weeks later his despair intensified. As he describes it, it was 'like someone had put a key in a lock and opened it without me giving permission to do that'. He adds: 'You just feel everyone's pain, everyone's suffering. And that's not me. I've never felt that before.' Prince William gave a remarkable insight into his...
    The omicron variant of the coronavirus has been reported in the U.S., including in Maryland on Friday, but Dr. Anthony Fauci said that although this latest variant is obviously of some concern, it’s “nothing to panic about” right now. That’s because “we don’t know everything about it,” said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden. Among the unknowns are whether the omicron variant makes people sicker and whether it can evade vaccines and boosters. Fauci, who spoke to WTOP on Friday, said more information might initially come from South Africa, where omicron was first identified. Scientists in South Africa recently reported that preliminary findings suggested omicron may cause increased reinfections among people who’ve already had COVID-19. Scientists have also observed that omicron appears to have a good degree of capability of transmission, and is possibly more transmissible than the delta variant. “So what we need to do is just keep just keep following the situation, getting as much information and data as we can,” Fauci told...

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is looking to build a civilian military in the Sunshine State that would be controlled by him and not the federal government.  DeSantis pitched the unit - which would be called the Florida State Guard - as a way to give support to the Florida unit of the National Guard during hurricanes, the pandemic and other emergencies.  He noted that the force, which he says would start at 200 volunteers, would give him 'the flexibility and the ability needed to respond to events in our state in the most effective way possible.' The Republican governor wants $3.5million to start up the force and train and equip the volunteers.  'Reestablishing the Florida State Guard will allow civilians from all over the state to be trained in the best emergency response techniques and have the ability to mobilize very, very quickly,' DeSantis added.  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announcing a potential relaunch for the Florida State Guard Thursday DeSantis claimed that the state guard would be 'unencumbered by the federal government' DeSantis also promised an $100million funding serve for...
    In 1928, a Danish newspaper ran a competition to mark 100 years since the birth of celebrated French author Jules Verne. The winner would echo the globe-trotting adventure embarked on by Verne's character Phileas Fogg in his famous novel, Around the World in 80 Days, which has just been adapted for TV by the BBC and stars Doctor Who star David Tennant. Open only to teenage boys, it was won by a red-haired, freckled 15-year-old boy scout named Palle Huld. In a 44-day blitz that saw him travel through countries including England, Canada, Japan, China and Communist Russia, Huld completed his trip and returned a hero. A year later, a fictional boy with a similar globetrotting streak appeared in the pages of a Brussels newspaper. He too had bright red hair and freckles. Tintin, the creation of comic artist Georges Remi – who was popularly known as Herge – went on to become one of the world's best-known comic book characters. Whilst no one is certain that Huld, who died in 2010 after a successful career as an actor, inspired...
    (CNN)On November 24, the Network for Genomic Surveillance in South Africa identified a new coronavirus variant of concern, dubbed Omicron. Since the variant's initial identification in South Africa, it has been discovered in a number of countries spanning multiple continents, and on Wednesday, the first case of Covid-19 caused by this variant was reported in California. Alane IzuShabir Madhi Two days after news of Omicron's existence was announced, after it had also been detected in Hong Kong and Botswana, the UK issued a travel ban on all foreign travelers from South Africa and a handful of neighboring nations with more than 20 countries, including the US, following suit in some form. This felt like a slap on South Africa's wrist -- and one that will likely hurt the South African people while providing little protection from Omicron to the rest of the world. South Africa should not be punished for being quick to identify the variant and notify the world of its presence. The promises heads of states made at the G20 summit in October to be collaborative in...
    I hope it’s clear by now Roe is doomed, though I don’t mean it will be overturned. That would be too obvious. I mean the Supreme Court’s six conservatives will instead find ways to sabotage it without striking it down. That way the anti-abortionists will get what they want. That way “moderate” Republicans will be able to say Roe is still the law of the land. (I presume this is a preferred outcome for Susan Collins.) That’s where we’re headed. That doesn’t mean, however, the fighting will end. Far from it. The Christian Science Monitor’s Henry Gass reported Tuesday on how conflict over reproduction will continue post-Roe. Some states will amend their constitutions prohibiting abortion. Some states will do the same protecting it. (My state of Connecticut enshrined Roe in statute years ago.) The site of conflict had been national for over a half-century. Future sites will be local. That conflict will be local, not national, means America over time will become a crazy-quilt of abortion laws in which some have rights and some don’t, depending on which part of...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Part of the holiday season is, of course, giving gifts. So, in that spirit, one non-profit is collecting presents to send to kids in more than 100 countries around the world. A group called Samaritan’s Purse is in its 26th year of running Operation Christmas Child, a project to donate toys and supplies to children in need around the world. READ MORE: Shootout Between Cars Speeding In Hampden Rattles Otherwise Quiet NeighborhoodThe group has processing centers in over a dozen cities, and one of them is in Sparrows Point in Baltimore. “I honestly want everyone to experience the Christmas joy,” said volunteer Gregory Quire. “I’m doing this today, so I can be a helpful servant in my community.” Thousands of volunteers like Quire are packing and processing donations like toys and school supplies into shoeboxes for some very deserving kids.

    TIGER WOODS is determined to be at St Andrews for the 150th Open next year - even though his golf is currently limited to a “little hit and a giggle” Woods knows he could not hope to compete with the world’s best golfers by next July, as his shattered leg will still not be strong enough for him to be anywhere near his best. 2Woods is determined to compete at St Andrews next yearCredit: Reuters 2However, Woods faces an uphill battle to get fit as his leg is still restricted to minimal movementCredit: AP But he says just returning to the home of golf would be another reminder of just how lucky he was to survive his 85 mph car crash in February.

    Russia is believed to be developing a special Artificial Intelligence (AI) software to predict and then prevent riots and protests in the latest part of a Kremlin crackdown on dissent. The technology will use machine learning to carry out a 'multi-factor, comprehensive analysis of the likelihood of riots and unauthorised public events' taking place and then alerts security services to them. The country's Emergency Situations Ministry is planning to have the technology in place in 2022, according to the Kommersant news website. The software will also analyse news, social media, CCTV and public transport data to foresee upcoming riots, and has drawn comparisons to the Tom Cruise film Minority Report.

    Fox Nation host Lara Logan has ignited a controversy by comparing Dr Anthony Fauci to the notorious Nazi Josef Mengele, who conducted hideous experiments on inmates at Auschwitz during World War II to earn his moniker as the 'Angel of Death.' Logan was taking part in a discussion on Fox News Primetime of the Biden administration's response to the new super-mutated Omicron variant of COVID-19 on Monday when she launched into a tirade against the president's chief medical adviser.  'This is what people say to me, that he doesn't represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps,' Logan opined.  'And I am talking about people all across the world are saying this because the response from COVID, what it has done to countries everywhere, what it has done to civil liberties, the suicide rates, the poverty – it has obliterated economies – the level of suffering that has been created because of this disease is now being seen in the cold light of...
    An online forum for women created to tackle misogyny and offer dating advice has come under fire for echoing incel culture by scrutinising and ridiculing men.  Founded in the US in 2019 by a 'collective' of anonymous women 'from all walks of life' the blog Female Dating Strategy is a website and online community claiming to help women enter 'relationships that truly benefit them', that's since become a global phenomenon.  It was created in reaction to Red Pill or Incel communities - a collection of websites, blogs, and online forums which oppose feminism and promote masculinity and misogyny.  Core beliefs include that 'most men are not of value' to women, that a man's 'role is to be the pursuer', men must 'invest' in you before you allow them to have sex with you, and that it's not acceptable to date a 'financially-challenged man'.  FDS labels unsuitable men 'scrotes', claims males with personality disorders or small penises should be avoided, while women should never move in with a man before marriage or have sex on the first date. In recent years...
    Lara Logan, once a deeply respected and award-winning investigative reporter, told Fox News viewers on Monday night that “people all across the world” are telling her that America’s top infectious disease expert is just like Josef Mengele, the notorious Nazi doctor known as the “Angel of Death.” With the new super-mutated Omicron variant sparking concern around the globe over a possible new round of lockdowns and restrictions, conservatives and right-wing media have started pushing conspiracy theories about the new virus strain. A number of Fox News hosts and GOP politicians have suggested that Democrats are making up COVID-19 variants in an effort to “cheat” and steal the upcoming election. At the same time, while Dr. Anthony Fauci has sounded the alarm over the “troublesome” Omicron’s potential resistance to immune protection, the chief White House medical adviser said he doesn’t anticipate any additional travel restrictions as he doesn’t sense a “high degree of severity” with the virus. During an appearance on Fox News Primetime on Monday, Logan—who hosts a program on Fox Nation, the network’s online streaming service—complained that the coverage...
    ZURICH (AP) — New Zealand’s path to the World Cup in Qatar will also start there when the Oceania qualifying tournament that was drawn on Monday is played in the host nation in March. The Oceania games will be closely watched by the United States and Mexico which could yet land in a World Cup playoff next June against the best team from the Pacific region. Qatar was confirmed on Monday by FIFA as the neutral host for the Oceania qualifiers which have been persistently delayed by travel and quarantine restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The March 14-30 schedule for the Pacific region teams “presents the first — and indeed last — opportunity for the preliminary competition to take place,” FIFA said. New Zealand, which previously played at the 2010 and 1982 World Cups, has the region’s most established player in Burnley forward Chris Wood and is strongly favored to win the Oceania tournament. Oceania has no direct entry to the 32-team World Cup. Its qualifying tournament winner earns a playoff game in Qatar on June 13 or 14...
    The importance of giving back is often understated, and sometimes, even those giving back don’t really know why they do it. Jonas Muthoni believes that the secret to living a fulfilling life lies in giving. Giving back is all about extending yourself to others and supporting them to better their lives. Finding your life’s meaning comes from what you give rather than what you receive. Jonas Muthoni, through his extensive network and experience in various sectors, has made it his mission to give back to the community. The Founder and CEO of Deviate Agency, Tappie, SomeFuse, Sell.io and CareAsOne is often referred to by employees and colleagues as a fearless leader. He leads his team towards bettering the lives of those around them. And he believes that true leadership is exhibited by bringing people together for a shared cause. “Contrary to popular belief, giving back to the community is not just about donating money,” says Jonas Muthoni who has served on the Breast Cancer Board for the past 4 years. “Donating your time and knowledge is just as crucial. Giving...

    For many the idea of shifting into a parallel universe will be something left to superhero movies and science fiction books. But for some it is perhaps a reality, with dozens of TikTok users are claiming they have shifted realities into parallel timelines - both accidentally and intentionally. The users claim they use the shower as their portal for time travel, simply by changing the temperature from hot to cold and 'manifesting' the change they want. Model Kady Rox , from Nashville, claims she was on a plane on a school trip in 2017, where she sat with a group of classmates. But on her return, the classmates claim they missed the flight.  Dozens of people took to the comments to say they'd had similar experiences, with one writing: 'I swear this happens to me all the time'. Another added: 'Timelines shifted in 2017. My life went on a 180 degree turn that year'. A third wrote: 'This happens a lot in airports'. Hundreds of TikTok users have shared videos claiming similar things have happened to them, with self-proclaimed 'master...
    George Kambosos Jr stunned the world by out-gunning Teofimo Lopez to claim the unified lightweight championship in a bitter grudge match in New York. But the Australian's incredible victory was slightly overshadowed by the reaction of his 'classless' opponent who snatched the microphone to say 'I won'.

    She’d arrived in his life like a guardian angel and left just as quickly. That was what made it so hard. As Chris Westry stood up to speak at the memorial service, he didn’t want to believe she was gone. Kim Brody was supposed to see him the day before. That was the plan. She would leave her Jacksonville-area home and head to South Florida for the Ravens’ Nov. 11 game against the Miami Dolphins. Westry was excited; his godmother had never been to one of his NFL games. He wanted to see her. He wanted to thank her. He never imagined that weekend being the one when he would have to say goodbye. “What hits you when somebody’s passed is, they’re not coming back,” Westry, a third-year cornerback, said in an interview Friday. It had been a week since he’d celebrated Brody’s life with friends and family in Jacksonville. Brody died Oct. 30 after suffering a massive stroke. She was 48. Now the holidays were approaching. It would be Westry’s first without her in his adult life....

    Thanksgiving, on the fourth Thursday in November, marks the start of America's holiday season: a time to celebrate the harvest and show gratitude for the good things in life. On a sunny day in Manhattan this week, the streets were buzzing, the shops festooned with Christmas decorations, and restaurants and bars were doing a brisk trade as New York rebounded from lockdown restrictions. But a few miles away at Brooklyn's grim Metropolitan Detention Centre, there were no lavish turkey dinners — and little to feel grateful about — for the fallen British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, 59, as she waited for her 'Trial of the Decade' to start on Monday. She has spent the past 17 months in custody there in conditions described by her own brother as 'degrading' and 'amounting to torture', following her arrest in July 2020 over sex-trafficking allegations.  Soon she could be spending the rest of her life behind bars — unless she convinces a jury of her proclaimed innocence. At Brooklyn's grim Metropolitan Detention Centre, the fallen British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell (pictured), 59, waits for her...
    By RAF CASERT and CALVIN WOODWARD BRUSSELS (AP) — Nearly two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, the world raced Friday to contain a new coronavirus variant potentially more dangerous than the one that has fueled relentless waves of infection on every continent. A World Health Organization panel named the variant “omicron” and classified it as a highly transmissible virus of concern, the same category that includes the predominant delta variant, which is still a scourge driving higher cases of sickness and death in Europe and parts of the United States. “It seems to spread rapidly,” President Joe Biden said of the new variant, only a day after celebrating the resumption of Thanksgiving gatherings for millions of American families and the sense that normal life was coming back at least for the vaccinated. In announcing new travel restrictions, he told reporters, “I’ve decided that we’re going to be cautious.” Omicron’s actual risks are not understood. But early evidence suggests an increased risk of reinfection compared with other highly transmissible variants, the WHO said. That means people who contracted COVID-19 and recovered...
    WHILE some families may think Disney World is too expensive for them, this definitely isn't the case - if you are careful where you spend your money. A former Disney World staff member has revealed the items you should avoid buying if you want to save money - and where you can get them instead. 2A former Disney employee has revealed the things guests should avoid buying at the theme park Kayleigh Price, who used to work at the parks for two years, revealed the things you should try to avoid buying. Her first tip is not buy professional photo packages, which can cost up to $199. Instead, get them for free. She wrote in Insider: "Every employee can take pictures for you from your personal device, like a phone or camera. "And you can get all the beautiful photos you want for free." Her next tip is to avoid paying for car parking, which is not included in the price of a park ticket and can cost $25 per car per day. If you're savvy about it, you can...
    The travel industry was today wracked with despair at the new uncertainty caused by the super-mutant Botswana variant, with the mayor of tourism-dependent Cape Town slamming the 'rushed' announcement to the world.  Health chiefs in the country hastily called a news conference on Thursday to announce the new B.1.1.529 variant was driving soaring infections - accounting for around 90 percent of all cases in just a matter of weeks.  It has caused a staggering rise in infections, with the 7-day average for daily cases standing at 1,000 on Thursday - a 262 per cent increase on the week before. Just hours after it was announced, Britain barred all flights from South Africa, and a slew of countries have followed suit, including France, Germany, Italy, Israel and Singapore.  Cape Town Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis slammed South Africa's Covid experts for making the announcement, saying that the country's tourism industry had been dealt a 'crushing blow.'  The news comes at a crucial juncture for travel firms around the world as people look ahead to the Christmas holidays - and fears over the new variant have...
    If we were confronted in our gardens by a 6ft 4in airman armed with a pistol, most of us would be tempted to turn and run. But when farmer's wife Evelyn Cardwell spotted a German who was parachuting onto her land after his Junkers 88 was shot down by the crew of a Hurricane in the Second World War, she marched towards him and told him to put his hands up. The story of the woman's incredible bravery in July 1940, which saw her rewarded with an MBE by King George VI, is recounted in book Faces of the Home Front 1939-1945, by historians Neil Storey and Fiona Kay.  With her husband away, Mrs Cardwell, 45, who was only 5ft 8in, had at first tried to call the authorities when she saw the German soldier in the sky above her home in the village of Aldborough, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, but then discovered the phone did not work. Instead, she told one of her farmhands to go on his bicycle and alert the police, whilst she plucked up...
    Critics of the communist Chinese government have argued that opening up business opportunities in China has allowed an antagonistic regime to use its financial power to take advantage of American companies. Some have stood up to the communist regime despite the risk of losing massive financial gain. Among the more laudable efforts are those of the World Tennis Association, which has demanded China answer for the disappearance of a professional tennis player who had accused a former Chinese official of sexual assault. "We're definitely willing to pull our business and deal with all the complications that come with it," said World Tennis Association president Steve Simon. "Because this is certainly, this is bigger than the business," he concluded. "Women need to be respected and not censored." Others, like NBA basketball star Lebron James, have been publicly lambasted for appeasing China while calling on Americans to join anti-racism political movements at home. Here's the video of Melissa Lee's comments: Jamie Dimon walks back remarks that JPMorgan would outlast China's communist party www.youtube.com

    President Biden on Wednesday invited Taiwan to a democracy summit next month, a move that sent China into a rage.   The 'Summit for Democracy' will bring together developed democracies like France and Sweden, but also places where activists say democracy is 'under attack' like Poland, the Philippines and India.  The US does not formally recognize Taiwan's independence and China sees the island as a rogue territory of the Peoples' Republic of China.  China, which was left off the invite list, eviscerated Biden for the move, calling it a 'mistake' and accusing him of using democracy as a cover for oppression.  China's Foreign Ministry said it was 'firmly opposed' to the invite.
