    Jurors in the Josh Duggar trial were given a 'virtual tour' of the accused child porn pervert’s computer today to demonstrate how he harvested and hid an alleged stash of warped video and images. James Fottrell, Director of the FBI's High Tech Investigation Unit, told a federal courthouse in Fayetteville, Arkansas that he used visualization software to replicate the exact desktop on Duggar's seized work PC. Using a series of screengrabs he showed how Duggar, 33, had allegedly created a secret domain where he could access the dark web to hunt for files marked 'Jailbait,' 'Pedo Mom' and 'Daisy's Destruction.' ’The latter video featured a girl of three to four months being stripped naked, posed on a bed and toilet before being tortured with hot wax. The infant is crying and screaming,’ the veteran investigator told jurors.  'It's one of the most offensive videos that I’m familiar with throughout my career.' Fottrell told the court that he identified that particular video through something called a torrent file that was present on the HP computer taken from Duggar's used...
    Conservative radio host Dan Bongino said during his Monday show that he caught a "painful case" of COVID-19 last week, despite having been vaccinated. "So I had COVID . You know my vaccine history. I've spoken about it. It was obviously a breakthrough case," Bongino explained . "It was not a mild case. It was actually a pretty painful case. So I don't know what the other cases are, these breakthrough cases. I can't speak to them — I can only speak for myself." NYC BLM LEADER STORMS OFF BONGINO'S SHOW: 'YOU'RE TRYING TO BAIT ME' "It was not a mild case — it was a pretty awful case ," he continued. Bongino said he suspected he knew from whom he contracted the case but did not provide details. He also said he didn't let the illness stop him from producing his shows as scheduled and that he isolated himself in his studio to produce the shows. "I'm not a doctor, ...

    A NEW Covid variant threatens the battle against the virus and is “deeply concerning” scientists have warned. It has now been confirmed that the Omicron strain has made its way to the UK, with nine cases having been reported. 1The virus has evolved once againCredit: Getty The variant is scientifically called B.1.1.529 and has been named Omicron.

    A NEW Covid variant threatens the battle against the virus and is “deeply concerning” scientists. Ministers have moved rapidly to try and keep it out of the UK, but there is a possibility the suspected fast-spreading strain has already arrived. 1The virus has evolved once againCredit: Getty The variant is scientifically called B.1.1.529 and has only been recognised in the past couple of days. It would be assigned the name “Nu” by the World Health Organization if it decides the strain is a “Variant of Concern”. The bulk of infections are in South Africa, which has seen a dramatic spike in Covid cases. It has the potential to change the course of the pandemic due to its characteristics. But there is a lot scientists do not know about it. So, what do we know? Why is it the worst ever? A number of experts have said this is a very concerning variant. Prof Ewan Birney, Deputy Director General of European Molecular Biology Laboratory, said: “Early evidence from genomic surveillance in South Africa suggests that B.1.1.529 is a serious cause for...
    SOUTH Africa has slammed the UK's travel ban as "rushed" despite a new, more infectious Covid variant spreading among the young and unvaccinated at lightning speed. Senior minister Naledi Pandor urged the UK government to reconsider the ban that was introduced on Friday. 4South Africa has recorded 53 cases of the new 'horror' Covid variantCredit: Reuters 4Senior South African minister Naledi Pandor branded the UK's ban as 'rushed'Credit: Getty Slamming the move, Pandor, who runs the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, said: "Our immediate concern is the damage that this decision will cause to both the tourism industries and businesses of both countries." She suggested the UK had overreacted as the WHO had not yet issued advice on the new B.1.1.529 strain. On Friday, UK Health Minister Sajid Javid temporarily banned South Africans from entering Britain, tweeting: "COVID-19 UPDATE: UKSHA is investigating a new variants. More data is needed but we're taking precautions now. "From noon tomorrow, six African countries will be added to the red list, flights will be temporarily banned, and UK travellers must quarantine."

    Thousands of people are landing in the United States from South Africa every week, despite a new COVID-19 variant sparking such concern that Britain and Israel on Thursday effectively halted travel from the region. The variant is predominately found in Botswana - from where there are no direct flights to the U.S. - and also in neighboring South Africa. United Airlines currently fly direct from Johannesburg to New York City seven days a week, with the 16-hour flight leaving at 10pm and arriving at 7am in Newark. United also fly direct to New York City from Cape Town three times a week, on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. United flies Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, which can hold 290 people. Delta fly direct from Johannesburg to Atlanta on Saturday, Monday, and Thursday. They use Airbus A350-900, which can seat between 300 and 350 people. On Thursday Britain's health secretary, Sajid Javid sounded the alarm over what he termed the 'worst-ever' super-mutant COVID variant.

    SOUTH Africa is set to be slapped with a travel ban in a desperate bid to halt the arrival of a terrifying new Covid strain. Senior Government scientists said the super-mutant was the “worst variant they have seen so far” – with vaccines expected to be at least a third less effective against it. 1A new strain is running rampant across South AfricaCredit: AP Experts warn the strain is behind an explosion of new cases in South Africa, with some regions seeing a six-fold rise in infections in a matter of days. It will now likely be placed on the travel red list, meaning only Brits and UK residents can now fly in. Officials are also desperately trying to trace thousands who have arrived from South Africa in the past ten days. Scientists said the new strain was unlikely to be in the UK, but with up to 700 people flying in a day, they could not rule it out. Currently called B.1.1.529, the bug has 32 mutations – twice as many as the delta variant. As well as South...

    YOUR wedding is arguably the most important day of your life - so with that in mind, your loved ones will probably give you a free pass if you turn into a bit of a bridezilla.

    Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) said on this week’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” that former President Donald Trump was “the worst threat to our democracy” in history. After a statement from Trump was read, Waters said, “The former president is the worst threat to our democracy that I have ever known, and perhaps anyone has ever known. Despite the fact that we’re on the other side of the issues and the aisles,  Democrats, and Republicans. We’ve never seen anything like this.” She continued, “This man has no respect for this democracy, and he supports those who basically invaded our Capitol. He supports those who threatened his own vice president, Mr. Pence, and he continues to go along this separation line. He has destroyed patriotism. Those who are in his circle who are afraid of him need to be ashamed of themselves in the way they’re trying to dismiss the law and not being compliant and continue the big lie about this campaign that they have had that said that somehow the presidency was taken from him.” Waters added, “We...
    Getty Eagles GM Howie Roseman chats with head coach Nick Sirianni prior to a game in 2021. Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman was seen scouting college quarterbacks on Thursday night in Pittsburgh. The innocent scene – front office executives are supposed to do their due diligence this time of year – got the boo-hiss treatment from fans on Twitter. It wasn’t because they are necessarily sold on Jalen Hurts. No, it was more over Roseman’s spotty track record. He hasn’t hit on many first-round draft picks in recent years, including what looks like back-to-back whiffs in 2019 (Andre Dillard) and 2020 (Jalen Reagor). NBC Sports’ Reuben Frank pointed out that the Eagles don’t have a position player on the roster in his 20s that’s ever been to a Pro Bowl. But the organization remains committed to letting Roseman run their current rebuild. He appears to have struck gold on first-rounder DeVonta Smith and second-rounder Landon Dickerson this year. Hurts? Well, the jury is still out so that’s why he was at Heinz Field scouting Kenny Pickett (Pittsburgh)...
    IT'S safe to say Saul Niguez's loan move to Chelsea hasn't gone the way he dreamed it would after he joined the Blues for more first team action. After a disastrous stint at Stamford Bridge the Spaniard could be out the door as early as January having played just 47 minutes of Premier League football. 7Saul has started just one Prem game for the BluesCredit: Getty Saul joined Chelsea on deadline day in a season long loan deal with a £35million option to buy included. Now he will reportedly be recalled by parent club in Atletico Madrid - ending one of the worst loan deals in football history. But the 26-year-old isn't the only big name who failed to live up to expectation while out on loan, as SunSport explore who else disappointed on temporary deals.

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that the testimony of Kyle Rittenhouse during his murder trial was some of the “worst acting” she has ever seen. During his testimony, Rittenhouse said, “I didn’t do anything wrong. I was defending myself.” Behar said, “Oh, baloney.” She added, “I mean, from what I’m gleaning from this case, the guy goes across state lines with an AR-15, with his mother and some other idiot in the car to defend himself against what? They’re having a protest in another state, and he takes it upon himself to go there. Then he says it’s self-defense. The acting job of the crying, I can’t even look at it. That’s one of the worst acting jobs I’ve ever seen.” Co-host Sara Haines said, “This is the problem with self-deputizing regular citizens. If you want to defend something, you need to be trained, and you need to be in law enforcement or in the military. It’s not up to the average citizen to take it upon themselves to arm them with an AR-15 of all weapons and...

"It is not up to the average citizen to take it upon themselves to arm themselves with an AR-15, of all weapons, and go somewhere where you know there is a lot of people and there's stuff going on — that's not going to end well," she said. Ana Navarro added that Rittenhouse has become "a hero to the right" and that a lot of people had a "visceral reaction" to his emotional testimony. "Obviously they put him on the stand to emote and to do this," Navarro said. Sunny Hostin, a lawyer, said the outcome...
    Getty Kent Bazemore defending Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. It’s been an uneven start to the regular season for the Los Angeles Lakers. The team sits at 7-5 with some ugly losses but had arguably their best win of the season against the Miami Heat on Wednesday. Los Angeles pulled off the 120-117 win in overtime and the game featured impressive performances from Malik Monk, Avery Bradley, Carmelo Anthony and Wayne Ellington. One player who failed to impress was starting guard Kent Bazemore. Despite the fact that he’s only averaging 5.6 points a game and is shooting 33.3% from three, the Lakers have started him in all 12 games this season. Against the Heat, Bazemore scored a total of two points. That appears to have been the final straw for fans of the team as some would like to see him benched while others would like to see him off the team outright. Kent Bazemore should not be getting any minutes. This dude is the worst nba player I’ve ever seen????????‍♂️ — JT???? (7-5) (@RussellsMVP) November 11, 2021 Hard to evaluate...
    The View’s Joy Behar ruthlessly mocked Kyle Rittenhouse for having an emotional breakdown during his trial, deeming the display merely performative. On Thursday, The View reacted to the dramatic trial of 18-year-old Rittenhouse, who faces homicide charges for shooting three men and killing two during last year’s unrest in Kenosha. Between the yelling and calls for a mistrial, the testimony of Rittenhouse himself made headlines when he started crying and hyperventilating while describing the events of that day. “Oh, baloney,” Behar responded as The View aired Rittenhouse’s outburst and other portions of his testimony. Behar also criticized Rittenhouse’s claim to self-defense, and noted that he possessed a rifle he legally wasn’t allowed to when he was in Kenosha during the riots. “That acting job of the crying? I can’t even look at it,” Behar said. “That’s one of the worst acting jobs I’ve ever seen.” Sara Haines added that “it’s not up to the average citizen to take it upon themselves to arm them with an AR-15” and go into an area of unrest without military training or being a member...

    Call of Duty: Vanguard launched last week with a revamped Zombies mode, but fans aren't happy about it. Call of Duty's Zombies mode has historically been round-based, getting progressively more difficult with each new round. 1Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies mode ditched round-based gameplay this year Treyarch explained it would be scrapping round-based gameplay for objectives this year, and it's not gone down well at all. Players are venting their frustrations on social media, citing the lack of round-based maps amongst a laundry list of other issues. Twitter user @Pez416 has gained traction with their tweet listing everything wrong with Zombies mode. And the traction it's getting (along with the countless other tweets highlighting the same points) suggests the community is united for once. The main gripes from the tweet include: No pack camo No round based maps No wonder weapons No new perks No content No Easter egg No Easter egg hunts No round 100 runs The tweet was in response to a tongue-in-cheek jibe from reputed CoD and Battlefield leaker, Tom Henderson, who...

    What's been the worst photo you've seen on Instagram? There are so many candidates for this coveted title that I'm only surprised there isn't now a Shameful Selfie awards ceremony, not least because all the perpetrators would definitely attend 'for the gram' such is their shocking lack of self-awareness. You could even lower the winners through a trapdoor on stage into a pool of ravenous sharks and they'd still view it as a price worth paying for going viral. A popular humorous website called 'Runt Of The Web' records some of the most deplorable outrages perpetrated on Instagram. As it says: 'What happens when you mix unbridled narcissism with unyielding stupidity and millions of teenagers willing to document every moment of their life? Why, the worst Instagram pictures ever.' Their list of shame includes a photo of a grim-faced old lady lying in a hospital bed being peppered with $100 bills by two of her grandchildren.

    THE “worst cold ever” is spreading like wildfire, striking thousands of Brits as they return to normal life. It’s not inevitable that you will catch it, or pass it on to someone else. 1Got symptoms? You're probably contagiousCredit: Alamy We’ve all gotten used to protecting ourselves from the coronavirus in the past almost two years. And the same measures can be applied to colds caused by common bugs. Only, there isn't a vaccine that can prevent or ease the severity of symptoms, like there is for Covid or the flu. So what is the worst cold ever, and how can you reduce its spread? What is the 'worst cold ever'? Colds and flu were stopped in their tracks for more than a year when people were forced to stay at home during lockdowns and social distance. However, since things have reopened and Brits are spending more time socialising, coughs, colds and flu are on the rise. People have rushed to Facebook, Twitter and TikTok to talk about how they have been ill for weeks with the “worst cold ever”....
    WINDY weather spreads germs further and faster, a new study has warned. Coughing without a mask on when the weather is breezy means it can be whipped further away in the same direction. 1Coughs can be taken by the wind and moved further to someone quite far awayCredit: Getty So bugs can be blown on the wind to someone standing relatively safely away at more than seven feet, the research found. It was primarily done to study the effect of people with Covid coughing without face coverings on windy days, but it can be applied to all airborne viruses. This means, as Brits try to battle both Covid and what has been dubbed the "worst cold ever", even being outside might not keep you safe from germs. As facemasks are no longer legal requirements when out and about, even a careful ventilated cough could end up infecting someone standing downwind. Published in Physics of Fluids, researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay found when a person coughs outdoors, wind flowing in the same direction can send the virus faster...

    This is some of the worst acting you’ve seen since Gigli. During the second quarter of the Tampa Bay-Miami game on Sunday, Dolphins defensive end Christian Wilkins took a painfully obvious flop after being mildly shoved by Bucs running back Leonard Fournette. The Tampa back gave Wilkins a slight push on the shoulder, and it was very clear that Wilkins was able to maintain his balance. But then, a split-second later, he threw his arms up in the air and began staggering backwards. “That was Robert De Niro in his prime!” CBS analyst Tony Romo, broadcasting the game, said sarcastically. “Out of the Clemson University school of drama,” Romo’s colleague Jim Nantz added, referring to Wilkins’s alma mater.

She told the BBC: "We've actually been seeing a rise in the number of coughs and colds and viral infections. "We are mixing in a way that we haven't been mixing over the past 18 months. "During those first lockdowns, we saw numbers of other [non-Covid] infections fall. We think that that was primarily due to the restrictions on meeting up." Most read in Health...
    The parents of six children in Pennsylvania were convicted on Wednesday in a case of child neglect described by one doctor as the worst he's ever seen, authorities said. Albert Dunkowski, 54, and Christine Dunkowski, 47, were convicted in absentia by a Bucks County jury of three counts each of endangering the welfare of a child, local authorities said. Middletown police took the six children into protective custody two years ago after four were discovered malnourished and ill sleeping in a car at the Woodbourne train station, according to the Bucks County District Attorney's Office. Two others were discovered with health issues elsewhere. While the parents appeared for the first two days of trial, they did not appear in court Wednesday. After unsuccessful attempts to locate them, a judge issued bench warrants and allowed the trial to proceed. Their sentencing was deferred until they can be located. The Dunkowskis said they lost their home and had been living in an encampment in the woods alongside the train station when they were found by police just after 2 a.m. on Aug. 27, 2019, the DA's...
    A PRIDE of emaciated lions began eating each other at a breeding farm in what has been described as the "worst animal cruelty case ever seen."

After getting a court order to enter the property, officers found the animals in terrible condition, famished, with burnt faces and paws, barely being able to stand.

    Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller was on the receiving end of a horrible taunting call during Monday Night Football. In Monday Night Football’s game between the Las Vegas Raiders and the Los Angeles Chargers, Raiders tight end Darren Waller received one of the worst taunting calls in the expansive history of horrible taunting calls. Darren Waller was called for taunting for SPIKING the ball. IT WASNT EVEN TOWARDS AN OPPONENT pic.twitter.com/dNDwoHoLLR — Ari Meirov (@MySportsUpdate) October 5, 2021 As seen in the video, Waller, after converting a huge third down, quickly spikes the ball as he is pushed out of bounds before retreating back to the huddle. Waller didn’t direct his action at any member of the Chargers or even stare any opponent down. Despite those facts, he was still flagged.

    A chilly autumnal breeze is upon us and many people have started to experience cold and flu like symptoms.

    Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party chairman and candidate for the federal elections, Armin Laschet, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, on September 26, 2021 in Berlin, Germany.Pool | Getty Images News | Getty Images LONDON - The reckoning has already begun for outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative alliance, a day after election results pointed to its worst ever showing since its formation at the end of World War II. Pressure is mounting within the Christian Democratic Union-Christian Social Union bloc after preliminary results published Monday showed that the center-right alliance achieved 24.1% of the vote, compared to 25.7% for the center-left Social Democratic Party. The results make a coalition government necessary and it's looking increasingly likely that the CDU-CSU may be heading into opposition although its candidate for chancellor, Armin Laschet, has still insisted that the bloc has a mandate to govern. Having essentially ruled out forming another so-called "grand coalition" together, both the SPD and CDU-CSU are now preparing to court two smaller parties — the Greens and the pro-business Free Democrats — with the aim of enticing them into...
    Charles Barkley has repeatedly ranted against cancel culture and continues to remain unapologetically brash despite the threat of being ostracized. During an interview with veteran sportscaster Chris Myers, Barkley again lashed out at political correctness, only this time, he spread his resentment to include all Democrats and Republicans. “Some of these people are just a**holes, they’re just trying to cancel people.” Barkley ranted about the need to be politically correct. “They’re just a**holes trying to get people fired.” Barkley has ingratiated himself with sports fans thanks to his no-filter style of basketball analysis. But that lack of a filter will also keep his bosses on edge. Although Barkley’s candor doesn’t sound tamed if you listen to him cover the NBA for TNT, the basketball Hall-of-Famer has criticized executives at Turner Sports for attempting to censor his humor. “We’ve had a couple meetings at Turner and their lawyers and HR keep telling me this bullsh*t about ‘context doesn’t matter,’” Barkley told Myers. “That’s the reason we’re in this sh*tty place we’re in as a country right now. Context does matter!”...
    Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative party suffered its worst performance since its inception on Sunday as the German leader prepares to step down after 16 years in office. The center-left Social Democratic Party (SDP) defeated Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) by about 1.6 percentage points, garnering 25.7% of the vote, according to preliminary results. CDU lost almost nine points from the 2017 election with 24.1% of the vote. The narrow victory means both parties will hold talks in an attempt to form a coalition government, The New York Times reported. Olaf Scholz, SDP’s candidate for chancellor, said his party’s gain of five points from 2017 gave it a mandate to form the new government. “Voters have clearly spoken,” Scholz said on stage Monday morning, the NYT reported. “They have said who should build the next government by strengthening three parties, the Social Democratic Party, the Greens and the Free Democrats. Consequently, that is the clear mandate that voters of this country have given, that these three parties should create the next government.” Armin Laschet (4thL), chancellor candidate of the Christian Democrats...
    Angela Merkel’s party has suffered its worst-ever election results in Germany’s federal elections, according to preliminary results. Her notionally centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party and its allied Bavarian sister party the Christian Social Union (CSU) appear to have taken 24.1 per cent of the vote share, down 8.8 per cent from the last election — their worst result since the dawn of the post-war democratic era in 1949, when they took 31 per cent in what was then West Germany. The left-wing Social Democratic Party (SPD) seems to have edged ahead of them with 25.7 per cent of the vote share, up 5.2 per cent from their last rather poor outing in federal elections. While the two parties are currently in a so-called “grand coalition” government under Chancellor Merkel’s leadership, it is unlikely — although not impossible — that such an arrangement will continue, with both claiming a mandate to govern and looking to Germany’s more minor parties to form a coalition. Germany, preliminary final result: SPD-S&D: 25.7% (+5.2)CDU/CSU-EPP: 24.1% (-8.8)GRÜNE-G/EFA: 14.8% (+5.8)FDP-RE: 11.5% (+0.7)AfD-ID: 10.3% (-2.3)LINKE-LEFT: 4.9% (-4.3)…...

    Conor McGregor threw out a pretty horrible first pitch and it has us wondering how it compares to other bad first pitches. One of the fun traditions of baseball is the ceremonial first pitch. Oftentimes, it’s famous people who have become so good at something that they are acknowledged and asked to do something that they are not good at, at all.

    Amy Sussman/Getty Images https://www.mediaite.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/Ken-Burns-On-Smartless.mp3 Historian and documentary filmmaker Ken Burns said that the present day is one of the worst times in American history. Burns made the remark while on the “SmartLess” podcast, hosted by Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, and Sean Hayes, comparing current events with the Civil War, the Depression, and World War II. “It’s really serious. There are three great crises before this: the Civil War, the Depression, and World War II. This is equal to it,” he said on Monday’s episode when asked about the direction the United States was headed. The documentarian went on to quote comments made by Abraham Lincoln during a January 1838 speech to a group in Springfield, Illinois: From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe, Asia, and Africa could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must...

    Last week, CBS announced a new reality TV series based on activists vying with each other to raise interest around woke, social justice causes. But before a single episode has aired, the series is being slammed by left-wing journalists and TV critics as “truly horrific,” “grotesque,” and the “worst idea ever.” The limited, five-week series will be co-hosted by pop star Usher, actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Dancing with the Stars star Julianne Hough. It will feature contestants picking a left-wing cause, and launching a social media campaign to raise awareness for the agenda. The contestants will be judged on the metrics of their online engagement, and input from the judge/hosts.

    To the average viewer, Tony Romo’s transition from NFL quarterback to top-tier CBS broadcaster felt seamless. One day he was throwing touchdowns for Dallas, and the next he was in the booth with Jim Nantz, predicting plays with an effortless charm and swagger. After all, many former athletes try their hand at media upon retirement, but none had ever become the highest-paid analyst just three years after hanging up the cleats. By all accounts, he was simply a natural. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM But Romo disagrees, admitting in a podcast interview recently that he was bland, boring, and frustrated with himself at the outset. "I watched myself. It was so boring. You would’ve been like, ‘This guy needs to stop doing this right now.’ That was the start of me listening to myself," Romo said. "It was just trial and error and gaining an understanding of what I would want to hear. When I listened to it, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I am the worst announcer ever. I am so boring.’ I cringe already...

That's why beautician, Mina, showed what she called 'the worst case' of lash extensions she'd ever seen. 3Her client came in to get the set removedCredit: @browlashbymina/Tiktok Posting to her TikTok account, browlashbymina, Mina showed one of her client's extension sets and the damage it can do to your natural lashes when they are not applied correctly. Mina captioned the video: "Omg. Please be careful in where you go for your lashes." She disclaims that she did not put on the lash set, and explains the client got them done in a salon. Her client was in a lot of pain and discomfort from the lash set, which had not been applied correctly, which Mina had to remove. Lash extensions are made with individual lashes, but the set her client had were attached all together, like a fake eyelash strip. Mina also said in the comments of the video that they may have been stuck on with hair glue rather than...
