It follows a disastrous first attempt that saw millions of users download rival chat apps – with many deleting WhatsApp altogether. 2This is the new pop-up you'll see very soonCredit: Facebook / WhatsApp Users now have until May 15 this year to click "Accept", or face being locked out of their WhatsApp accounts.

    The Eagles’ controversial decision to bench Jalen Hurts in the team’s final game against the Washington Football Team left a bad taste in nearly everyone’s mouth. Except the Washington Football Team, that is. Postgame audio caught by NFL mics shows Washington defensive end Montez Sweat joking with Hurts. “I don’t know what would’ve happened if you would’ve stayed in there, man.” MORE: NFL has giant reasons to be concerned about Eagles Hurts completed just 7 of 20 passes for 72 yards and an interception, but also ran eight times for 34 yards and two touchdowns. His backup Nate Sudfeld — who came on at the start of the fourth quarter with Philadelphia down just three points — was not as impressive. He completed 5 of 12 passes for 32 yards and two turnovers in the 20-14 loss. Many who follow the NFL feel Doug Pederson’s decision to bench...
    Shortly before he died from complications of COVID-19, a Texas lawyer man wrote a heartbreaking love letter to his wife of 21 years, telling her how much he loved her.  Billy Loredo, 45, was admitted to McAllen Medical Center in McAllen, Texas with coronavirus on Thanksgiving, and two and a half weeks later her passed away from the virus. But just before Billy was intubated, he took a moment to write a heartfelt email to his wife, Sonya Kypuros, letting her know that he lived a 'happy, wonderful life' with her that she wouldn't have traded for 'all the riches in the world.' Tragic: Billy Loredo died at age 45 on December 13 at McAllen Medical Center in McAllen, Texas — leaving behind his wife of 21 years, Sonya Kypuros) Love note: Before he was intubated, he wrote one last love letter to his wife Billy's family told WFAA that he...
    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Laura Ingraham expressed her pessimism about the prospects of the 2020 presidential election going in Donald Trump’s favor. Ingraham also disputed any notion that saying it was likely Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden would be sworn in was a departure from conservatism. “[U]nless the legal situation changes in a dramatic and unlikely manner, Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20. Now, to say this does not mean I don’t think that the selection was rife with problems and potential fraud. And to say this does not constitute being a sellout to the conservative populist movement that I’ve been fighting for, I don’t know, 25 years. And it does not mean that I disagree all with the President’s right and obligation to pursue all legitimate legal challenges to this outcome. To say this constitutes living in reality, and if I offered you a...
    Republicans focus on campaigns; Democrats focus on elections. While that difference may seem minor, even semantic, it’s one of the great differences in American politics — and largely explains what we are now living through. If you prioritize campaigns, you want a candidate who draws great crowds, gets people excited, and has an attractive policy platform. But if you prioritize elections, you want to build a machine that wins the elections — the candidate is secondary at best. And that’s what Democrats have been doing methodically. While former Vice President Joe Biden was hiding in his basement, Democrats were building a machine to win no matter what, able to adapt to this year’s massive surge in voting by mail. TRUMP LAWYER JENNA ELLIS: WINNER OF TRUMP-BIDEN RACE WILL BE DETERMINED BY COURTS — WE DON’T KNOW YET WHO WON And now we are seeing their plan come to fruition. Based...
    They go by a few names – emergency bag, go-bag, bugout bag, survival kit, and so on – but whatever name you call an emergency survival bag, I call owning one a good idea. In the event of an emergency that necessitates you fleeing your home, having a bugout bag close at hand could be the difference between a few days of serious unpleasantness and a few days where you have the food, water, basic first aid, and shelter you need to get through OK. (And not to hammer too hard on this, but we could even be talking life or death, so if you’re on the fence about buying one… y’know….) Bugout bags are essential when a sudden disaster strikes, and especially one that cripples local emergency response capabilities, like wildfires, tornadoes, earthquakes and the like. At other times, as with hurricanes, for example, you see the trouble coming...
    David Masciotra October 17, 2020 4:00PM (UTC) Noam Chomsky, one of the world's foremost public intellectuals, has provided the international left with wisdom, guidance and inspiration for nearly 60 years. Proving that he operates at the locus where argumentation and activism meet, he demonstrates indispensable intellectual leadership on issues of foreign policy, democratic socialism and rejection of corporate media bromides. One of the founders of linguistics, he is also an American dissident who has wrestled with systems of power on matters no less important than genocide, war and poverty, creating a corpus of classics, ranging from his manifesto against the Vietnam War, "American Power and the New Mandarins," to his amplification of reason against a jingoistic cacophony following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, "9-11." "Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media," which he co-authored with Edward S. Herman, is essential reading for anyone interested in the real biases against democracy in the commercial...
    CNN anchor Don Lemon criticized Ice Cube for his involvement with President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, causing the rapper to lash out on Twitter and issue a challenge to meet on Lemon’s show. Lemon opened Friday night’s edition of CNN Tonight by bantering with colleague Chris Cuomo about a just-concluded interview with the rap and film star, who has been facing intense criticism ever since the Trump campaign announced — with his permission — that the rapper advised them on President Donald Trump’s “Platinum Plan” for Black America. Lemon couched his criticism in respectful terms, telling Cuomo  “I don’t want to disrespect him, he’s very accomplished, I’ve only met him a few times, nice guy.” “But one needs to know what one is talking about,” he continued. “One needs to educate oneself on just what is, other than the basics about capital, which is important, about voting, which is...
    So you think you’re financially astute? Then try taking the following financial literacy test containing just three basic questions about interest rates, inflation and diversification. Despite being quite elementary, only 34% of adults aged 38 to 64 are able to answer all three correctly. Among millennials this percentage is just 16%. Those results are sobering enough. But what’s even more striking is the disconnect between these low scores and investors’ self-perception. More than 71% of older adults rate themselves as having “high financial knowledge.” The comparable percentage among millennials is only slightly lower at 62%. These results are reported in a just-published study, “Millennials and money: Financial preparedness and money management practices before COVID-19.” Its authors, all affiliated with the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center at George Washington University, are Annamaria Lusardi (the Center’s founder and director), Andrea Hasler, and Andrea Bolognesi. Here are these three basic questions for which...
    I didn't think I would see anything as sickening this year as the appalling killing of George Floyd at the kneed of a callous police officer. But I was wrong. The grainy video of a disgusting coward sneaking up to shoot two deputy sheriffs in Compton, Los Angeles as they sat in their patrol car was just as repulsive and disturbing. There was no warning, and no provocation. This was just a deliberate, pre-meditated attempt at a cold-blooded execution. The shooter clearly intended to kill his targets as he fired a number of rounds from his pistol at point blank range into their car before running off. Fortunately, as I write this column, he appears to have failed in his mission as both deputies are reported to have miraculously survived the ambush, although they were seriously injured.  Video released by the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department shows the moment that...
    Former Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell ripped into journalists on Friday during a briefing on an economic deal between Kosovo and Serbia when reporters asked instead about other topics -- suggesting the topic was “too complicated” for them. "I don't know if you can find it on a map, but this is atrocious. I have to tell you guys,” Grenell said at a White House briefing. TRUMP OVERSEES ECONOMIC DEAL THAT INCLUDES KOSOVO RECOGNIZING ISRAEL, SERBIA MOVING EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM Grenell, who served as special envoy for the talks, was speaking to journalists about the deal to normalize economic relations between the two former adversaries. The Belgrade-Pristina deal was signed by their two leaders –­ Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo's Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti –­ in front of Trump in the Oval Office, with Trump describing it as a "major breakthrough." The deal normalizes relations between the two on...
    On the third night of the Republican National Convention (RNC), one of the most powerful speeches came from historic civil rights figure Clarence Henderson, who boldly declared that a vote for Joe Biden is a denial of history. In 1960, Henderson participated in the Greensboro sit-in, a series of non-violent protests where young black American students refused to leave the segregated Woolworth lunch counter after being denied service. Photo below: Clarence Henderson has ALWAYS fought for freedom.#RNC2020 pic.twitter.com/eWgxRb4eb4 — Students For Trump (@TrumpStudents) August 27, 2020 During his four-minute speech, Henderson highlighted the accomplishments of President Trump for the black community and recalled his historic fight against racism 60 years ago. “There have been movements that have changed the course of history. Among the most extraordinary was the civil rights movement,” he began. “Sixty years ago, segregation was legal and enforced. The simple act of sitting at a lunch...
    Clarence Henderson, a Republican active in the civil rights movement, argued during Wednesday night's Republican National Convention that 'history' should guide black voters to President Donald Trump - and not Democrat Joe Biden.  'Joe Biden had the audacity to say if you don't vote for him "you ain't black,"' Henderson said, a reference to the Democratic nominee's contentious interview with radio show host Charlamagne tha God back in May. 'Well to that I say, if you do vote for Biden, you don't know history.'  Henderson talked about his own history, the history of the Republican Party - that of Abraham Lincoln and GOP politicans who pushed for the Amendments that gave black Americans rights - and Trump's four-year history with the black community as president.  Clarence Henderson, a Republican active in the civil rights movement, spoke on behalf of President Donald Trump during Wednesday night's Republican National Convention programming ...
    NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- New York City is not dead; in fact, it's on its way back, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio.The mayor was asked if the city was in a death spiral, and he said that he spoke to someone who is "successful in real estate" and is a proud New Yorker. "He said unquestionably the city is coming back and anyone who doesn't understand that isn't paying attention."He claims that many of the people who lived in the city back in February are still in New York City, despite reports of many people moving to the suburbs or staying in their summer homes for an indefinite amount of time.RELATED: NY real estate market seeing shift to surburbsAs for those who left, Mayor de Blasio said, "they'll come back" or "they will be replaced by others who bring a lot of creativity and talent."He added, "If you...
    Yesterday was a three and I felt that. The day before was an eight and unmistakably so. It just had that eight feeling, you know? Where you’re looking out the window, and everything pauses, just for a second, and you’ve got a mug of coffee in one hand and a glazed donut in the other, and you stand there and you think to yourself … eight. Right? Knowing the numbers is half the battle these days, and if you’re anything like me you’ve found it hard to keep up. There are just a tonne around right now. Uncountable! I see them all the time: on the news, on my phone, in rainclouds, and stamped on the faces of strangers in the street. Fifty! 63! Seven hundred and seventy seven thousand, seven hundred and seventy seven! Two and a half! … -365. [Ed’s note: Keep it clean, buddy!] That’s...
    Portland police have endured literally months of nightly rioting that left-wing politicians and reporters routinely brushed off as "mostly peaceful protests." They've been getting pelted with rocks, explosives, and other projectiles. They've put up with physical violence from Antifa and Black Lives Matter militants whose latest escapade was trying to burn down a police precinct — and splashing paint on an elderly woman who dared to stand up to the mob. Image source: Twitter video screenshot So with that, one Portland cop apparently couldn't resist any longer.What are the details?Early Sunday morning before the sun rose, a freelance journalist noticed Portland's finest had handcuffed a female protester. Video was running as the obligatory pat-down commenced, and the journalist — also a woman — grew suspicious as it apparently looked as though only male officers were on hand. "Do you have a female officer present while you're patting...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Back To School looks a lot different this year. Most students aren’t going back to classrooms for a while. Instead, parents are getting their kids ready to start school from home. Here’s Part 3 of our KPIX 5 Guide To Surviving Home Learning. What do you do if you don’t know the answer? “I recommend engaging in that research process together, that learning process together,” said Dr. Emily Slusser, Child and Adolescent Development Dept. Chair at San Jose State University. “I had that opportunity to revisit the world of quadratic equations with my daughter and I felt like it was helpful for us to go through that process together, for me to go ahead and be very forthcoming about what I do and what I don’t know and the things that we don’t know, we go ahead and find out. “Another opportunity might be,...
