    Support is surging for the family of a 37-year-old North Jersey man being remembered as a "good soul" with an optimistic approach to life.

After the final whistle, manager Ralf Rangnick was asked about the boos directed towards Pogba. Read more...
    A 21-year-old claimed that she was 'almost sold into sex slavery' by her own best friend when she was just a teen - who tried to trick her by pretending she had been picked for a school exchange program.   Back in 2013, Ana Vianey Martínez Lugo, from Mexico, almost became a victim of human trafficking at the hands of her close pal - but was ultimately saved by her 'sixth sense,' and her mom.   Ana's friend - whos name was kept hidden for privacy reasons - had told her that she had won the opportunity to take part in a student exchange in Spain, and that she was able to take two friends along.  Excited to be picked, Ana began filling out the documents so she could jet off halfway around the world with her friend, whom she had known for five years.  But when the then-teenager was sifting through the personal data form, there was one big giveaway that untangled the web of lies. A 21-year-old claimed that she was 'almost sold into sex slavery' by her own best friend when...
    Will Smith admitted in his memoir that being made to feel like a coward was 'my most violent trigger' in a passage which helps explain why he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars. Smith wrote that seeing his father brutally beat up his mother when he was nine years old 'defined who I am today more than any other moment.' The Men in Black star admitted that he 'always thought of myself as a coward' for failing to intervene in the beating. He called his father a 'violent alcoholic' and said that he considered suicide because of the shame at not standing up to him.

    A rising-star journalist has shared how she was canceled by her colleagues and the internet for blasting BLM for vandalizing synagogues during summer 2020.   Eve Barlow was enjoying a soaring career as a music writer, with the journalist - who is Scottish, gay and Jewish - once told she was 'magic' by a senior editor for the quality of her copy.  But Barlow  - who was on track to become one of New York magazine's star writers - says she was shunned after blasting BLM vandalism days after George Floyd's murder.    Recalling the editor who branded her abilities 'magic,' she wrote for Common Sense with Bari Weiss: 'Well, I was. But now that I was a “racist,” none of that was real.'  The tweet that saw Barlow was posted four days after Floyd's killing in Minneapolis, on May 31 2020. She wrote: 'Woke up to see that synagogues in LA have been graffiti'd during the riots with the words FREE PALESTINE and F*** ISRAEL, and that dua lipa is spreading antisemitic posts on her IG feed,' she wrote in the tweet in...

    MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes faced a barrage of tweets after he said that he "doesn’t quite get" people still angry over COVID-19 restrictions. On Tuesday, Hayes tweeted a lengthy thread questioning the "COVID discourse" coming from the "get back to normal" side. DAILY BEAST COLUMNIST LIKENS BARI WEISS’ COVID FATIGUE TO AMERICAN ‘CRUELTY,’ WHITE SUPREMACY  "The COVID discourse is weird and nasty because I think it just absolutely sucks to go through two years of a pandemic.

    Progressive Democratic Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon of Pennsylvania is calling for 'common sense gun-safety' reform on Thursday after she was carjacked at gunpoint by five teens in Philadelphia earlier this week. She said she hoped the teenagers learn from their mistakes and denounced politicization of her incident as 'pretty despicable' in comments to a local CBS affiliate. 'I wish they rather focus on the fact that we can prevent gun violence with common-sense gun safety measures,' Scanlon said.   The oldest teenager charged with the carjacking was out on bond at the time of the crime on Wednesday from stealing another car. Josiah Brown, 19, is facing federal charges for the carjacking in Philadelphia. He already has a string of other arrests. Along with Brown, four other teens were involved in the carjacking ranging from ages 13-16 – all of whom were released back to their parents.  Recalling the incident on a CBS radio station, Scanlon said: 'A car pulled up, kind of behind and at first we didn’t pay much attention to it.' 'Two people got out of the car and...
    The Los Angeles County Sheriff has slammed San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin for 'flying in the face of common sense' and undoing the work of police with 'woke laws,' as the state grapples with staggering crime rates.    Alex Villanueva, who was elected LA County Sheriff in 2018, took aim at Boudin after the liberal prosecutor called recent efforts to crack down on rampant smash-and-grab crimes a 'knee-jerk reaction.'  'There's nothing ''knee-jerk'' about it. It's just common sense,' Villanueva told FOX News host Shannon Bream on Tuesday.  'But when you fly in the face of common sense...I have a 92 percent increase in homicides in two years. I have a 16 percent increase in grand-theft auto. I have a 'zero bail' schedule, which means every person I catch with a stolen car gets a ticket, walks out of jail…in fact, they're out of jail before [deputies are] even done writing the report,' Villanueva added.  The sheriff added that Boudin and other George Soros-backed woke prosecutors like LA County DA George Gascon turned against police as part of their political agenda, but don't...
    Fox News contributor Joe Concha reacted to the media meltdown over Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V. opposing President Biden's Build Back Better agenda, Monday, telling ‘America’s Newsroom' that the senator was using ‘common sense’ when he expressed his inability to vote in favor of the bill. FUMING OCASIO-CORTEZ SAYS LEGISLATION WAS ALREADY THE 'JOE MANCHIN BUILD BACK BETTER ACT' JOE CONCHA: Let’s just remove all the noise. Democrats need 50 votes in the Senate to pass this bill. Kamala Harris serves as the tiebreaker, they have 48. The math also extends to inflation. You’ve talked about it before. The CBO says Build Back Better will add, what $3 trillion to the deficit? And most sane economists say that will make inflation, currently at what, a 40-year-high, even worse. So maybe just maybe those covering the story might want to explore that angle a little bit more in its coverage. Finally, more hard numbers, and I’ll leave it here: Joe Biden is currently polling at 65% disapproval in West Virginia. That’s the state Manchin represents. Three-quarters of people living in that state...
    Getty Chicago Bulls coach Billy Donovan looks on during a game against the Detroit Pistons. Although the Thanksgiving holiday is upon us, and the Chicago Bulls have a lot to be thankful for at the moment, it has been a particularly rough week for the team. Just two days after suffering one of their worst losses in years at the hands of the Indiana Pacers, the Bulls were gut-punched on Wednesday. For their latest contest, Billy Donovan’s crew was in Houston for a potential breezer against the then one-win Rockets. But instead of righting the ship after the Pacers debacle, the Bulls allowed Houston to knock down 17 three-point shots en route to a 118-113 win. A lot of things went wrong for the Bulls, especially during a third quarter that saw the Rockets outscore them 35-18. “We just came out and kind of messed around with the game, and before you know it, we’re down by 10 after being up by 10,” Donovan later said. However, the Bulls coach was also taken aback by the officiating during...
    FALL RIVER (CBS) – The death of a 30-year-old Fall River man in an officer-involved shooting Monday night remains under investigation, according to Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn. The family of Anthony Harden is looking for answers about what happened when two officers went to his Melville Street apartment to question him about an assault charge from a woman they say was his girlfriend. The assault allegedly took place last Saturday. READ MORE: Massachusetts Hospitals With Limited Capacity Ordered To Reduce Elective Procedures“It doesn’t make sense. Why show up in regards to a situation two days ago and it escalates with a young man dying. It doesn’t make sense,” said Harden’s brother Carl. The victim’s twin brother Antone held a self-portrait done by Anthony Harden calling him an artist, a writer and a free thinker. “This is just a reflection of who Anthony is or was.” READ MORE: 'We Are Lucky To Have People Like This On The Watch': Massachusetts Firefighters Honored At Awards Ceremony Family members hold up a self portrait made by...
    Former New York Times tech reporter Nellie Bowles, the wife of conservative columnist Bari Weiss, claims the newspaper bullied her out of the paper - much like they did Weiss - and was 'leaking stories to other publications to embarrass me.' Bowles, who covered tech for the Times beginning in 2017, announced her move to Weiss' Common Sense Substack on Friday with an article slamming the Gray Old Lady for a woke culture run amok.  She claimed she began at NYT as a 'very happy, lauded bulldog liberal of a writer' but that the outlet and the culture in general has shifted toward a 'charismatic new ideology' that she felt pressured to 'cheer on or otherwise carefully ignore.'  'When I didn’t, I became suspect,' she wrote. 'My colleagues started leaking stories to other publications to embarrass me.' Bowles added that she was particularly bothered by being contacted by a magazine reporter and asking about her co-workers being angry at her for going to CHAZ [Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone] in Seattle during the racial justice protests in 2020.  'Efforts by well-meaning...
    The parents of a schoolteacher who died in January 2011 are suing a Pennsylvania medical examiner's office after it ruled she had killed herself by stabbing herself 20 times.  Ellen Greenberg’s parents, Sandee and Joshua, have been granted a non-jury trial in their lawsuit against the coroner's office over her death in her Philadelphia apartment, CBS Philly reported.  Greenberg, 27, was discovered with 20 stab wounds in the kitchen of her Philadelphia apartment on January 26, 2011 by her fiance Sam Goldberg, with the Medical Examiner's Office initially ruling the death a homicide.   She was stabbed 10 times in the neck and the back of her head and 10 times in her stomach, abdomen and chest. A knife was still plunged in her heart.  At the time, police claimed that the door of Greenberg's apartment had been locked from the inside and that there were no signs of a struggle.  Medical Examiner Marlon Osbourne subsequently changed the cause of death to suicide and the case was closed, according to the lawsuit. Ellen Greenberg, 27, pictured, was stabbed 20 times in the kitchen...
    Local health officials in Chicago are showing no immediate signs of lifting the city’s mask mandate, as Dr. Allison Arwady of Chicago’s health department said they will have a “better sense by, I think, Thanksgiving.” “I know there’s a lot of interest in not needing to wear the mask,” Arwady said during a Monday press conference, explaining that removal of the mandate is not “imminent,” as the Windy City is reporting an average of 291 cases per day.  “I have been talking with [the Illinois Department of Public Health] about taking that regional approach and being able to remove that as an indoor mask requirement,” Arwady continued, adding she would be “very happy” if the city could get out of what she described as the “substantial risk” category.  “But, really, looking ahead, we’ll have a better sense by, I think, Thanksgiving,” she said, suggesting the mask mandate is likely to stay in place for at least another month. Arwady’s remarks coincide with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D), who has also shown no signs of lifting the statewide mask mandate, which he...
    DR HILARY Jones' home has been targeted by a "vicious" mob of anti-vaxxers after the Good Morning Britain star supported the Covid jab. The telly doctor's home in a small Kent village was a scene of chaos yesterday morning, when a swarm of clueless "soldiers of truth" descended. 3Dr Hilary Jones' home has been targeted by a "vicious" mob of anti-vaxxersCredit: Rex 3One demonstrator spoke through a a megaphoneCredit: Twitter @M_Douglass64 Dr Hilary, 68, advocated for the jab during an appearance on Lorraine in August, where he claimed anti-vaxxers lack "common sense" and "have to be protected from themselves". In a clip of the protesters shared to social media, one is heard shouting through a megaphone: "The things you are doing are criminal on every single level and we will not stop until we get justice." Police attended the gravel driveway where the protesters congregated, and it has not been revealed whether Dr Hilary was in at the time, MailOnline reports. An insider told the website: "A vicious bunch of protestors turned up on the driveway outside Hilary Jones' Kent...
    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen testified Thursday that she'd like to do away with the debt limit because it made no sense to limit the Treasury Department's ability to borrow money to pay bills already approved by Congress. 'When Congress legislates expenditures and puts in place tax policy that determines taxes, those are the crucial decisions Congress is making,' Yellen said. 'And, if to finance those spending and tax decisions, it's necessary to issue additional debt, I believe it's very destructive to the president and myself, the Treasury secretary, in the situation where we might be unable to pay the bills that result from those past decisions.'    Bumping up the debt ceiling is Congress' next chore with an important deadline, as Yellen has warned the U.S. will hit the limit on October 18 - sending the country into default if fresh legislation isn't passed.  Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen testified Thursday that she'd like to do away with the debt limit because it made no sense to limit the Treasury Department's ability to borrow money to pay bills already approved by Congress...
    The United States' Electoral College is puzzling to residents of other democracies, as they use the popular vote to elect their presidents or prime ministers. The most outspoken defenders of the Electoral College tend to be Republicans, but in Michigan, a Democrat and a Republican have joined forces and launched a ballot drive for their state to join a movement to elect presidents by the popular vote. The Detroit Free Press' Paul Egan reports, "Mark Brewer, an election law attorney who is a former chairman of the Michigan Democratic Party, and Saul Anuzis, a political consultant who is a former chairman of the Michigan Republican Party and former member of the Republican National Committee, announced the National Popular Vote petition drive at a Monday news conference. If enough states sign onto the plan, the U.S. would keep the Electoral College system, but the presidential candidate who wins the nationwide popular vote would be guaranteed the White House. In a press release, Democrat Brewer said, "We are excited to launch our effort to bring this important proposal to let voters,...
    Tucker Carlson found it hard to grasp on Friday that CNN has been criticizing President Joe Biden on Afghanistan. Carlson said Biden’s allies are attacking him “openly and very aggressively,” highlighting CNN in particular and very critical reporting from Clarissa Ward in Kabul. He told viewers that clip is significant because “CNN is a political organization, its anchors and reporters don’t decide for themselves what to say on camera, they are told what to say, they are told in highly specific terms every weekday morning on a wall with their commander, Jeff Zucker.” Ward has been in Kabul for the past week, covering the chaos on the ground as the Taliban took over, and earlier Friday she was on one of the planes evacuating people. “When CNN takes a position or changes its position on something, it changes as one, everybody, from the chirpy morning dingbats to Don Lemon in the night shift. They all say precisely what they are told to say,” Carlson continued. He singled out Brianna Keilar to personally insult, saying, “On a good day she’s probably...
