    Ukrainian refugees have been pictured waiting at the United States southern border as it emerged that only 12 people fleeing Russia's war in Ukraine were admitted to American soil via the U.S. refugee program in March. U.S. President Joe Biden said last month that the United States would accept up to 100,000 Ukrainians fleeing the conflict that has wrought havoc in their home country. But lawmakers and advocates have urged the Democratic president to speed up refugee and visa processing to boost the pitifully low numbers of entrants as the war rages on.   More than 4 million people have fled Ukraine to neighboring countries since Russia invaded the country on Feb. 24, according to United Nations data, representing the biggest refugee crisis in Europe since World War Two.   Poland has already opened its borders to over two million refugees, with several other European countries taking in hundreds of thousands.   Hundreds of Ukrainians seeking refuge have been allowed to cross into the US from its southern border with Mexico, provided they are deemed to be 'particularly vulnerable'.  But a shockingly small number...
    NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter will be used to hunt for the crater left behind after the impact of a rogue rocket into the surface of the moon on March 4.  The origin of the rocket is under debate, with the leading theory suggesting it was launched by the China National Space Administration (CNSA) in 2014, as part of the Chang'e 5-T1 mission, a precursor to the launch that saw moon rocks return to Earth. The Chinese government deny this, saying it is 'very careful about its disposal policies after launch,' and US Space Force tracking suggest the Chang'e 5-T1 mission rocket burnt up in Earth's atmosphere in 2015. Whoever launched the rocket, it is set to crash into the surface of the moon on March 4, and while it won't be in a position to see the impact, NASA says its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter will be able to find the aftermath.  It is set to crash into the far side of the moon, out of reach of Earth-based telescopes. But NASA's satellite can use its cameras to search for the impact...
    The first image of China's rouge Long March 5B rocket has been released by astronomers. The Italy-based Virtual Telescope Project captured the craft, which appears like a glowing light, as it passed 435 miles above the group's 'Elena' robotic telescope. The Chinese rocket has made headlines this week when new surfaced the massive 22-ton vehicle would make an uncontrolled reentry weekend, with the possibility of landing in inhabited areas. The rocket was moving 'extremely fast' when it soared 435 miles above the Virtual Telescopes Project's telescope Wednesday evening.  Gianluca Masi, an astronomer with the Virtual Telescope Project who snapped the image, stated that 'while the Sun was just a few degrees below the horizon, so the sky was incredibly bright: these conditions made the imaging quite extreme, but our robotic telescope succeeded in capturing this huge debris.' 'This is another bright success, showing the amazing capabilities of our robotic facility in tracking these objects.'

    Jose Cruz Noguez, 47, of Mexicali, Mexico, was arrested while crossing into the United States at the Calexico Port of Entry and received two different smuggling related charges in federal court on Tuesday A Mexican man has been charged with human smuggling after he allegedly masterminded an illegal border crossing operation that resulted in the deaths of 13 migrants.  Jose Cruz Noguez, 47, was arrested Tuesday - four weeks after the migrants were killed in a fiery crash that occurred in Holtville, California on March 2.  Cruz is accused of cramming 44 migrants from Mexico and Guatemala into two separate SUVs which were subsequently driven through a 10-foot breach in a fence at the US Southern borde.  19 migrants were allegedly packed into a GMC Yukon, while another 25 migrants were stuffed into a Ford Explorer SUV.  Both vehicles illegally entered the United States through the gap in the border fence shortly before dawn.  But, just minutes later, the Ford Explorer collided with a tractor-trailer on a Californian highway, killing 13 of the migrants who were crammed into the car. ...
    Former late-night television host Jay Leno has issued an apology for a series of jokes told over his career targeting Asian communities. The apology from the 'Tonight Show' comedian comes after a nearly 15-year campaign from the activist group Media Action Network for Asian Americans (MANAA) for remarks as recent as a 2020 report that Leno cracked about Koreans eating dog meat, Variety reported.  The dog meat joke reportedly offended numerous people on the set of NBC's 'America's Got Talent.' 'At the time I did those jokes, I genuinely thought them to be harmless,' Leno said during a recent videoconference with MANAA co-founder Guy Aoki. 'I was making fun of our enemy North Korea, and like most jokes, there was a ring of truth to them.' There was a 'prevailing attitude that some group is always complaining about something, so don't worry about it,' Leno said. Jay Leno appeared at The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize tribute concert at DAR Constitution Hall on March 4 in Washington, D.C. The former late-night television host has apologized for jokes about Asians...
    By JUSTIN POST, The Livingston Enterpsie One recent afternoon this month, three generations of the Andersen family climbed onto four-wheelers and a mini-pickup, and motored into a field to check on this year’s calves. Debbie Andersen, who grew up here on the family ranch along McDonald Creek in Paradise Valley, drove her four-wheeler through scattered clumps of snow as a group of cows and their new calves milled about in the unseasonably warm sun. Her husband, Jerry Andersen, made his way toward another group of cattle gathered across the field as their son, Kyle, and Kyle’s oldest daughter, Daisy, 3, returned from a short walk after finding a deer antler. The Andersens are like many Park County ranchers who are working through the annual calving season, which typically wraps up later this month or in early April, the Livingston Enterprise reported. On Tuesday morning, Andersen said about a dozen pregnant beef cattle remained on the ranch, where the family operates a dairy farm in addition to raising beef cattle. Personal preference largely dictates when ranchers choose to put calves on...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Lakers legend Magic Johnson made an appearance Wednesday night via Zoom on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about this year’s NCAA Tournament and the return of fans in a limited capacity. “You want them there to give you the energy, right,” Johnson said. “This is what happens, especially when you’re down in the game, a crowd can will you to victory, can bring you back, and so I think it’s going to be good for all of the college players to have some people there cheering — or even booing.” READ MORE: Phillip Lindsay, Broncos Officially Part Ways And while Johnson conceded Gonzaga is the favorite to take it all, he said he wasn’t going to count anyone out.

    BOSTON (CBS) – Former Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, the U.S. Special Envoy for Climate, is facing criticism for a picture circulating on social media of him not wearing a mask on a flight. The Tennessee Star’s Neil McCabe obtained a photo of Kerry not wearing mask as he was reading a book in first-class on an American Airlines flight from New York to Boston Wednesday. The photo shows the mask hanging off Kerry’s left ear. @TheTNStar Exclusive: Biden’s @ClimateEnvoy John Kerry, took off his mask as he settled into a book in his first-class seat just before takeoff today on an @AmericanAir flight Boston to DC.

    Bradley Cortright March 17, 2021 0 Comments The White House has scheduled President Joe Biden’s first formal press conference in office, more than 50 days after he was inaugurated. On Wednesday, former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said she finds it “confounding” that the press conference was announced more than a week ahead of time. “It’s extraordinary that he hasn’t taken questions so far,” McEnany said during an appearance on Fox News’ “Outnumbered.” Biden has answered questions in interviews and a town hall event. He has also occasionally answered questions from reporters at events. However, he has not held a formal press conference. She continued, “It’s also confounding to me, as Dana Perino, one of my predecessors, pointed out, that they chose to announce it nine days in advance. Nine days! A lot can happen then, and one of the advantages you have, when you’re in the White House, is to gauge the messaging on any given morning. She added, “You want to see what the news cycle is. To promise this nine days out…no one knows what the...
    New York : At the end of the elimination of FC Barcelona from the Champions League, after drawing 1-1 with Paris Saint-Germain in the Parc des Princes, and falling 5-2 on the global scoreboard, the figure of the Catalans and the technical director of the French said goodbye with a hug, which was lent to much speculation. Much has been said in recent days of PSG’s interest in signing Messi and Neymar’s interest in reuniting with his former partner, so many media took the gesture as a nod to a possible migration of the Argentine to the Parisian team. However, they are mere speculation, since later in the press conference, Mauricio Pochettino, the coach of the French team revealed that he and Leo Messi only greeted each other when they hugged.

    Bradley Cortright March 8, 2021 0 Comments Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is slamming Republican officials who continue to support former President Donald Trump and says she believes they are acting like a cult.  During an interview with The Washington Post on Monday, Clinton addressed the fact that members of the Republican Party continue to embrace Trump. “It is really troubling to see the Republican Party turn themselves into a cult and basically pledge allegiance not to the United States of America but to Donald Trump,” Clinton said.  Watch the video below: Hillary Clinton: “It is really troubling to see the Republican Party turn themselves into a cult” and “pledge allegiance” to Trump. pic.twitter.com/uzyg1rkkxm— The Recount (@therecount) March 8, 2021 Still, she said, “I’m hoping that the Republican Party will find its soul, will find its center again and understand that they can’t keep playing with fire.” Clinton claimed that Republicans thought they could “control” or “use” Trump to “take over the Supreme Court” or “recklessly cut taxes.” “So, I hope that the Republican Party catches up with the rest of...
    New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow argued in a recent piece that cartoon character Pepé Le Pew perpetuates rape culture. “As a child, I was led to believe that Blackness was inferior. And I was not alone. The Black society into which I was born was riddled with these beliefs,” Blow wrote in a New York Times column published last week. “It happened for children in the most inconspicuous of ways: It was relayed through toys and dolls, cartoons and children’s shows, fairy tales and children’s books.” “Some of the first cartoons I can remember included Pepé Le Pew, who normalized rape culture,” Blow added of Looney Tunes’ skunk cartoon. Blow reiterated his stance, which came in a piece titled “Six Seuss Books Bore a Bias,” in Twitter messages this weekend. “RW blogs are mad bc I said Pepe Le Pew added to rape culture. Let’s see. 1. He grabs/kisses a girl/stranger, repeatedly, w/o consent and against her will. 2. She struggles mightily to get away from him, but he won’t release her 3. He locks...
    This week's military coup in Myanmar is not just another episode of repression and regression in a remote Asian country that is now disappearing once more behind a bamboo curtain. Terrifyingly, it is the latest symptom of a growing global trend away from democracy. For decades, Myanmar's most famous daughter, the steely Aung San Suu Kyi, was a world-wide symbol of how peaceful protest could undermine a deeply entrenched military dictatorship. Fallen idol: Aung San Suu Kyi's support abroad dwindled after she defended the army  The Nobel Peace Prize winner, whose late husband was British historian Michael Aris, spent nearly 15 years in detention between 1989 and 2010, before leading her party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), to a landslide win in the country's first fully democratic election in 2015. Myanmar's generals, under pressure from the US and the UK, seemed content to abide by the result – but they struck a behind the scenes deal whereby Aung could run the government but they would remain in charge of security and keep their privileges. Within two years, the...
    Moderna Inc says it is on track to deliver the U.S. 100 million doses of its coronavirus vaccine by March and 200 million doses by June. That will be enough to immunize 100 million people - about one-third of the country's population - with the two-shot regimen.  In a press release on Tuesday, the biotechnology company says it has supplied the federal government with 30.4 million doses to date. What's more, the firm says it is continuing to invest and add staff in the hopes of producing one billion doses by year's end. It comes as President Joe Biden said he expects U.S. will soon be able to vaccinate 1.5 million people per day, 500,000 more than originally anticipated.  Moderna Inc says it is on track to deliver 100 million coronavirus vaccine doses by March and 200 million in June per its deal with the U.S. Pictured: A person receives the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in the gymnasium of International High School in Paterson, New Jersey, January 20 The supply, enough to vaccinate one-third of the U.S. population, is the same...
    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has plunged England into a new national lockdown until at least mid-February to combat the super-infectious mutant coronavirus that is already spreading across the United States.  Johnson on Monday ordered people to stay at home again, as they were ordered to do so in the first wave of the pandemic in March, because the new virus variant was spreading in a 'frustrating and alarming' way.    The UK has seen an alarming surge in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, which officials have blamed on the mutation that is more contagious than existing variants.  Authorities have recorded more than 50,000 new infections daily since passing that milestone for the first time on December 29. On Monday, the UK reported 407 virus-related deaths to push the confirmed death toll total to 75,431 - one of the worst in Europe.  The US on Monday recorded 210,479 new cases and 1,394 additional fatalities as a result of COVID-19.  The UK currently has more cases and deaths per million people than the US.   British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday plunged the UK into a...

    Jared Kushner, the senior adviser to President Trump, told Fox News’ “The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton” Sunday that it is “absolutely disgusting” to see politicians trying to use the coronavirus to score political points in an election year. Kushner, who is also Trump’s son in law, pointed to the recent anniversary of the attacks on 9/11 and recalled how--in the immediate aftermath-- Americans didn’t “politicize that crisis.” Video“We came together as a country,” he said. “President Trump has continued to lead, continued to do the right thing. But it’s very sad for me to see how a lot of these politicians have tried to politicize this. But that’s what they do.” The election season is in full swing and both Trump and Joe Biden are trying to present themselves as the leader who will keep Americans safe amid the deadly pandemic. Biden’s team has tried to describe Trump as someone who failed to rise to the occasion. Democrats have claimed that Trump did not take the virus seriously enough in its early stages and has been playing catchup ever since. VideoBiden has...
    No journalist has done a better job of fact-checking Donald Trump during his presidency than Daniel Dale. But now the CNN reporter, formerly of the Toronto Star, has done an invaluable service by outlining the nine conspiracy theories the president is continuously peddling. As Dale suggests, “Trump has been a conspiracy theorist for years.” but never before has he pushed so many at one time. Two of them align completely with disinformation campaigns coming out of Moscow. For example, we learned that the Russian government began promoting the lies about mail-in ballots as early as last March. Russia has sought to “amplify” concerns over the integrity of U.S. elections by promoting allegations that mail-in voting will lead to widespread fraud, according to an intelligence bulletin obtained by ABC News, again echoing a frequent and unfounded complaint raised by President Donald Trump. Analysts with the Department of Homeland Security’s intelligence branch issued the warning on Thursday to federal and state law enforcement partners after finding with “high confidence” that “Russian malign influence actors” have targeted the absentee voting process “by...
