    SANTA CLARA (CBS SF) — They helped build the San Francisco 49ers into a Super Bowl contender. On Saturday, Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch wished Defense Coordinator Robert Saleh well as he became head coach of the New York Jets. Shanahan offensive genius and Saleh’s defensive schemes powered the San Francisco 49ers to the 2019 NFC title and a Super Bowl berth where they fell to the Kansas City Chiefs. Despite a litany of injuries to key players, Saleh’s defense still finished the disappointing 2020 season as one of the NFL’s top units. “There is not much I haven’t already said about Robert’s abilities as a coach and as a leader,” Shanahan said in a statement released by the team on Saturday. “As a friend, I respect him greatly and could not be happier for him, Sanaa and their family. Robert helped to build a successful environment that has developed...

    WWE usually goes all out during the holiday season. From the infamous Miracle on 34th Street stipulation to the iconic PPVs like New Year’s Revolution, the holiday season is a time for great wrestling.

    A half-century ago, progressives used to push limitless free expression, blasting conservatives for their allegedly blinkered traditionalism. They boasted of obliterating once-normal boundaries in art, music and literature to allow nudity, profanity, sexuality and anti-American boilerplate. Now? The left is Victorian — increasingly puritanical, regressive and hypersensitive. Even totalitarian censorship and book-burning have weirdly become part of their by-any-means-necessary methods. University of California, Berkeley, professor Grace Lavery was so outraged by author Abigail Shrier’s latest book, “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters,” that she went well beyond the usual calls to ban the book. Lavery advocated burning Shrier’s book. “I DO encourage followers to steal Abigail Shrier’s book and burn it on a pyre,” Lavery tweeted last month. Did the self-appointed liberal watchdog the American Civil Liberties Union step in to defend free expression? No. One ACLU official poured gas on the book-burning fire. “Stopping the circulation of this...

    BERLIN (Reuters) - Berlin's venerable Tegel airport hosted its final flight on Sunday, a Paris-bound Air France plane that left to cheers and a fountain salute from the terminal's fire engines. First opened to commercial aviation in 1960, Tegel was one of the main gateways linking West Berlin, an exclave of democratic West Germany deep inside Communist East Germany, with the rest of the world. Sirens blared and hundreds of airport workers lined the airport tarmac to watch a motorcade escort the final jet to the runway, 60 years after an Air France flight became the first commercial flight to touch down on it. Due to its Cold War history, many Berliners feel an emotional tie to the airport, which started life as a makeshift air base built by French occupying forces in a matter of weeks to send in supplies to West Berlin when Soviet forces blockaded it in...

    Billy Beane’s potential deal to buy a stake in the company that owns the Boston Red Sox would end his visionary reign at the Oakland Athletics — and could mark his exit from baseball entirely, The Post has learned. Multiple sources tell The Post that Beane of “Moneyball” fame would resign from as position as executive vice president of the A’s and sell his minority stake if his “blank check company” is successful in its reported pursuit of Fenway Sports Group, the Boston-based conglomerate that owns the Red Sox and English soccer champions Liverpool. Beane, the most celebrated baseball executive of his generation, would not be leaving the A’s after 23 years to join the Red Sox, but rather to focus on building a soccer empire in Europe, these sources said. As The Post reported in August, Beane has partnered with prolific sports banker Gerry Cardinale to raise $575...

    Microsoft will end support for Internet Explorer 11 across its Microsoft 365 apps and services next year. In exactly a year, on August 17th, 2021, Internet Explorer 11 will no longer be supported for Microsoft’s online services like Office 365, OneDrive, Outlook, and more. Microsoft is also ending support for Internet Explorer 11 with the Microsoft Teams web app later this year, with support ending on November 30th. While it’s still going to take some time to pry enterprise users of Internet Explorer 11 away, Microsoft is hoping that the new Internet Explorer legacy mode in the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser will help. It will continue to let businesses access old sites that were specifically built for Internet Explorer, until Microsoft fully drops support for Internet Explorer 11 within Windows 10. Microsoft’s move to stop supporting Internet Explorer 11 with its main web properties is a good first step, though....
