    Reading the fine print or understanding available offers means you could be saving money or taking advantage of refunds or freebies that you might not have otherwise known about, like a brand-new pair of Nike sneakers. That's the kind of attention to detail that can lead to some surprising upsides, according to Erika Kullberg, lawyer and founder of Plug and Law, a legal tech start-up for small businesses and entrepreneurs. Kullberg has found that you could be eligible for compensation for everything from getting bumped from your flight to having a package arrive after its guaranteed delivery date or money off an Apple purchase under its educational pricing. Airlines are already anticipating a busy summer, which makes it particularly important for passengers to understand the rules in the event of an unexpected change. And agreements like Delta's contract of carriage can be long. That's why it can pay off in a big way to take the time to read and fully understand the fine print. "Almost every transaction in your life involves a contract whether you're flying with an...
    A Russian oligarch being kicked out the UK has moaned he may not be allowed to take his cleaner or driver - as thousands of Ukrainians die at war. Petr Aven, who is allegedly close friends with Vladimir Putin, said he and his family 'don't understand how to survive' on their own. The billionaire businessman, 67, who lives in St James's, central London, fears he will never be allowed back into Britain following crippling sanctions by the West. Aven had his bank account and assets frozen across the UK and Europe after Russia invaded Ukraine last month. He was said to be with despot Putin in the Kremlin on the day soldiers crossed into the disputed Donbas region. The former academic and politician - worth around £4.5billion - now wants to challenge the sanctions levelled against him. It comes as Russian bombs continued to decimate Ukrainian cities across the country on Friday. But the resistance movement kept up the fight and in some areas showed signs of pushing Moscow's forces back. Petr Aven, who is allegedly close friends with Vladimir...
    Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said people in Washington, D.C. don't understand how she speaks because they live in a bubble.  'They are disconnected from real Americans, and that is their problem, not mine,' the Georgia Republican told The Washington Times in an interview published Wednesday. 'I believe and share the same thoughts and feelings of the people in our district.'    In her nearly 15 months in Congress, Greene has stood out because she's dabbled in conspiracy theories, gotten into arguments with her peers in the hallways and shouted down President Joe Biden during this month's State of the Union address.  Republican Rep.

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) responded to the extensive backlash she’s facing from Trump supporters over her continued condemnation of former President Donald Trump’s role inciting the January 6 Capitol riot. While appearing on the Honestly with Bari Weiss podcast, the eponymous host played several soundbites from Tucker Carlson, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) insulting Cheney. “I don’t understand how those people frankly look themselves in the mirror,” Cheney replied. “What we’re dealing with here is a situation where we had an assault on the Capitol and we need to understand what happened and we need to make sure the people who did it are held accountable.” Cheney then slammed Carlson, Hawley, and Cruz for there responses to the Capitol riot. “To be in a situation where you’re unwilling to get to the bottom of what happened, where you’re trying to obstruct the investigation, where you’re rejecting the importance of an investigation or, you know, frankly, in the case of the people that you mentioned, embracing the former president,” she said. “You know, my view is that...
    In November, Rodgers — during another interview with McAfee — discussed treatments to bolster one's immune system, such as zinc, vitamin C, and more. "I believe strongly in bodily autonomy and ability to make choices for your body, not have to acquiesce to some woke culture or crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something,” he said during the November interview. “Health is not a one-size-fits-all for everybody." During his own bout with coronavirus, Rogers said that he took ivermectin, zinc, and vitamin C and underwent monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19. On Tuesday, he said that the treatments he chose to got the virus' symptoms under control within 36 hours. "I don’t understand why society and the NFL hasn’t talked about legitimate treatment options," Rodgers said. "And monoclonal antibodies I believe is one of them." "The one frustration I have is that throughout all of this there hasn't been any conversation about health. I don't understand why society & the NFL hasn't talked about legitimate Covid treatment options" [email protected]\n\n#PatMcAfeeShowLIVEpic.twitter.com/QtLaERUtn4...
    Feeling overwhelmed by the sensation that you’re going to be sick is one of the most miserably debilitating experiences — pity, then, people who live with nausea, feeling severely sick for days, weeks, even months on end. Experts say that for many people living with long-term conditions, the nausea this causes can be the worst part of their illness. ‘It is so debilitating that it stops people living their daily lives,’ says Gareth Sanger, a professor of neuropharmacology at the Blizard Institute at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.  ‘Research has found that patients are so desperate to escape chronic nausea that they say they would even be prepared to gamble on taking a theoretical pill that would have a 50/50 chance of curing them or killing them. It’s that bad.’ Experts say that for many people living with long-term conditions, the nausea this causes can be the worst part of their illness Recent research found that a quarter of women affected by severe, persistent nausea and vomiting during pregnancy suffered suicidal thoughts as a result.

    Former President Barack Obama revealed that his wife Michelle told him to spend more time with Bruce Springsteen to reflect on his 'failings and flaws.' Obama said during a CBS interview on Monday that as he was getting to know singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, his wife said to him, 'you need to spend more time with Bruce.'  'I said, "Well, why is that?''' Obama recounted.  'She says, "You know, he understands all his failings and flaws as a man, and you don't seem to understand as well just exactly how messed up you are."' Obama said he replied: 'You're right. No doubt.' Michelle and Barack Obama met in 1989 while working at a law firm in Chicago and married three years later.  Michelle opened up about her marriage to the 44th president in a September 2020 episode of The Michelle Obama Podcast.  'There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it’s like, you’ve got to know the feelings will be intense,' she said. 'But that doesn’t mean you quit. And these periods...

    Pete Buttigieg fired back at Tucker Carlson's claim he was 'figuring out how to breast feed' during his paternity leave and insisted he was still available to respond to the supply chain crisis while looking after his twins with husband Chasten  Pete Buttigieg fired back at Tucker Carlson's claim he was 'figuring out how to breast feed' during his paternity leave and insisted he was still available to respond to the supply chain crisis while looking after his twins with husband Chasten. 'I guess he [Tucker] just doesn't understand the concept of bottle feeding, let alone the concept of paternity leave', the Transportation Secretary told MSNBC's Deadline White House on Friday night. 'But what's really strange is that, you know, this is from a side of the aisle that used to claim the mantle of being pro-family, he added in the interview with Nicole Wallace. 'This attack is coming from a guy who has yet to explain his apparent approval for the assassination of Harvey Milk, so obviously we know there's some dark places where some of these attitudes come...
    Gain weight as we get older it cannot be attributed to a slowdown in metabolism, according to an unprecedented analysis of how the body uses energy. The study, with 6,400 people ranging in age from 8 days old to 95 years old and conducted in 29 countries, suggests that metabolism remains “rock solid” during middle age. It peaks at the age of 1, is stable from 20 to 60, and then inexorably declines. The researchers note that the findings provide surprising new insights about the organism. Muscle mass Metabolism is every drop of chemicals that are needed to keep the body running. And the bigger the body, whether with more muscle mass or too much belly fat, more energy will be needed to function. So the researchers modified the participants’ measurements, adjusting for body size, to compare people’s metabolism “pound for pound.” The study, published in the journal Science, found 4 phases of metabolic life: From birth to the age of 1 year, when the metabolism goes from being the same as that of the mother to a level 50%...
    (CNN)As Covid-19 rates improved and vaccinations allowed much of the country to reopen, reports of crime waves began to dominate headlines. Politicians, pundits, journalists and law enforcement have all scrambled to make sense of increased violence around the United States, while the public is left to sort through alarming numbers and conflicting narratives. Understanding crime trends requires nuance, but gaps and inconsistencies in the data make it easy to misinterpret and spin facts in a way that serves political agendas instead of evidence-based solutions.It's never simple to pinpoint the reasons behind a rise in crime — especially following a year as extraordinary as 2020, in which Americans faced a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic, a steep rise in unemployment rates and a summer of intense social unrest. "Every time there's a rise in crime, it's complicated," said Bruce Shapiro, executive director of the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma. "As journalists, we should be putting all the complexity about this front and center."So here's what you need to know to navigate the numbers — and what we actually know and don't know about...

    FIRST PARENT BANK, PA (KDKA) — Among the many lessons of the pandemic is the lack of a guarantee that a paycheck will always be there. With so many young people coming out of college or on summer break going into the job market, financial experts say now is the time to drill down on critical issues of money. It’s not an easy conversation but Certified Financial Planner and the Finance Expert for Tally says start early, “Your kids are never too young to start learning about financial responsibility. So, that is whatever works for your family, but the younger the better.” From the first allowance, Rebell says the lessons should begin and accelerate in the teen years. “I believe that’s about 16 because that’s the age when most kids often have their first job, they often have a driver’s license which allows them not only to get to that job but also to have responsibility for something pretty expensive, maybe if they have a job, they want to chip in on that car the insurance that kind of thing...

With a topic this big, it can be hard to even know where to start — so we’ve teamed up with experts who have real answers to parents’ questions. For parents, navigating the topic of race and racism with little kids can feel overwhelming. Can children even understand the concepts of race and identity?

    When I was a kid in the 1980s, politics held minimal appeal. Watching the candidates, nearly always two white men talk about issues, would inevitably make my eyes glaze over. Hearing the grown-ups in my life talk about their preferred candidates held little appeal. I sensed that elections and voting were important but not something I had to really worry about. Now, some 30 years later, it’s impossible for my kids to not pay attention. Their lives have been deeply impacted by the decisions made by someone far away. Their parents are emotional, the politicians are emotional and sometimes, adults express these emotions in a manner children are all too familiar with. The election season civic lessons imparted to me as a child no longer feel adequate. Today’s kids have big questions and big feelings about this election year, and it’s up to parents to help them process. Children are experiencing politics more intensely There have been few moments in recent history in which children’s lives have been so directly affected by politics — think the 1918 flu pandemic, the...
    Even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect countries around the globe, researchers are hard at work trying to understand what happened and how such tragedies can either be prevented or mitigated in the future. Prominent among these efforts is a new spreadsheet developed by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), where a team is attempting to track what are described as "ARS-CoV-2 Superspreading Events from Around the World" — and Colorado appears all too often on it. The document (accessible on Google Drive by clicking here), currently includes 137 superspread events in this state out of a total 1,521. As noted by Florida's Poynter Institute, which is touting the spreadsheet, the database provides information and brief descriptions about each event's location and whether it took place inside or outside, as well as geographic coordinates for mapping purposes. A wide range of countries is included, from Argentina and Australia to Singapore and Vietnam.Related Stories Hancock: Rising COVID-19 Numbers Put Crackdowns, Shutdown on Table COVID-19 Update: Inside Colorado's Third Wave COVID-19: Polis on Why He's Extending Statewide Mask Order...
    (CNN)One of the great frustrations about US tax law for a lot of Americans is that everyday wage earners can often pay a higher tax rate than billionaire real estate investors.The publishing of data about more than a decade of President Donald Trump's tax returns in The New York Times confirms he often paid little or no federal income tax and suggests running for president and being elected did nothing to awaken a patriotic sense of tax-paying duty in Trump.The report left me completely confused about how and why tax law allows this type of behavior and how, specifically, Trump's tax lawyers might have gone about reducing his tax bill so dramatically below the more than $10,000 per capita that Americans pay in federal income tax. I reached out to Charlene Luke, a professor at the Levin College of Law at the University of Florida who is a tax law expert.She answered my questions but wanted to make clear that she hasn't reviewed the returns reported on by the Times -- this is a good place to note that no...
