    Whoopi Goldberg sparked anger on Monday by claiming that the Holocaust 'was not about race' because it involved 'two groups of white people' - but it is far from the first time that the 66-year-old has courted controversy.  Goldberg, who began her career as a standup comedian and in avant garde theatre troupes, won an Oscar in 1991 for her performance in Ghost - the first black actress to win a Best Supporting award since Hattie McDaniel won for Gone With the Wind in 1940.  She is one of only 16 people to have won an 'EGOT' - an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award. On Monday night, she issued an apology for her Holocaust remarks, saying she was 'sorry for the hurt I have caused'.  Yet she has remained resolutely controversial.

    According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Donald Trump's attempts to only get Republican lawmakers who support him re-elected will be running into an unexpected roadblock. That would be former Vice President Mike Pence. As the report notes, Trump is handing out endorsements left and right and, in many cases, is picking challengers to the incumbents in the hopes of making the GOP even more beholden to him. The report notes that many Republican governors are keeping their distance from Trump who not only lost the White House in 2020 -- but had a hand in the loss of the House and the Senate during his four years in office. According to the Journal's Michael Bender, "Republican governors around the country have flashed streaks of independence based mainly on political calculations that they are better off giving priority to local issues and constitutional obligations. As a result, about half of the 16 Republican governors up for re-election next year also face primary challenges from opponents endorsed by the former president or otherwise inspired by him." The report goes...
    A 23-year-old has revealed that she has the back of someone in their fifties — and her doctor believes her spinal disc degeneration may be the result of her vaping.  Megan McTigue, who is known as @meg_mctigue on TikTok, warned about the dangers of vaping nicotine in a now-viral video that she posted earlier this month after getting her alarming MRI results. 'I just found out something pretty crazy yesterday that I think more people should know about,' the University of Maryland graduate said at the start of the clip, explaining she's been having 'a lot of really bad lower back pain.'  Scroll down for video   Don't do it! Megan McTigue, who is known as @meg_mctigue on TikTok, warned about the dangers of vaping nicotine in a now-viral video Not right: When the University of Maryland graduate got an MRI after experiencing back pain, the scan showed that her three lower discs were slightly degenerated When Megan went to get an MRI, the scan showed that her three lower discs were slightly degenerated, something that is more commonly seen...
    By Katie Lobosco | CNN About 8 million low-income people were eligible for stimulus payments last year but never received the money, raising concerns about getting the latest round of help to those most in need — yet there’s no sign the Internal Revenue Service plans to restore a tool that would make it easier. Early in the pandemic, the IRS created a simple online form to allow low-income people who aren’t usually required to file tax returns to provide their contact information to the agency. But that tool has remained offline since November, even after Congress approved two more rounds of stimulus payments. Now, people who missed out must file a 2020 tax return in order to get the money they’re owed from the first two stimulus checks, along with the third one. People who used the non-filer tool before it went offline will automatically receive their third stimulus payment without taking action. An IRS spokesman told CNN Thursday that there are no plans to bring back the tool but encouraged people to file returns so that they can...

    An Oakland teacher has blasted 'rich white parents' complaining that distance learning amid the pandemic has impacted their children's mental health and accused them of 'causing their kids' anxiety by pressuring them to complete asynchronous work'. Bethany Meyer, a special education teacher at Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) and secretary of teachers' union the Oakland Education Association (OEA), told California parents eager to get their children back to school to 'take a seat' in a social media post last week. 'All the rich white parents suddenly concerned about mental health can take a seat,' she wrote on Twitter February 17. 'Most of them are causing their kids' anxiety by pressuring them to complete asynchronous work and feeding into their sense of entitlement. Sorry/not sorry.'  Her tweet comes amid the ongoing storm around schools reopening as parents and lawmakers are pushing for schools to reopen, while teachers and teachers' unions are concerned about the risks of contracting COVID-19 by returning to the classroom. An Oakland teacher has blasted 'rich white parents' complaining that distance learning amid the pandemic has impacted their...
    Joe Biden will blame President Donald Trump for the race-fueled disorder in several cities during a speech Monday delivered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.   'This president long ago forfeited any moral leadership in this country,' Biden plans to say, according to pre-released remarks from his campaign. 'He can't stop the violence - because for years he has fomented it.'  Biden will point out that Trump didn't call on his own supporters to disengage, after truckloads of them descended on Portland, Oregon Saturday and shot left-wing protesters with pepper spray and paint balls.    Joe Biden will travel to Pittsburgh Monday to deliver remarks about how President Donald Trump is contributing to the race-fueled disorder playing out in the streets in several American cities 
    When Texas began easing restrictions on the coronavirus, Governor Greg Abbott was not wearing a mask. It prohibited mayors from taking extra precautions during one of the fastest reopens in the United States. He said the White House supported his plan and that people could safely leave their homes. Two months later, the wave of infections has forced him to back down. This is not limited to Texas, where Abbott abruptly halted mitigation and urges people to stay home. In Arizona, Governor Doug Ducey declared the state “on hiatus” as hospitals are rapidly running out of capacity. As the wave of infections surpasses daily records of confirmed cases and hospitalizations in the southern and western United States, governors are passing measures they previously rejected, and their tone of voice becomes more peremptory. Detractors say the measures are insufficient, or worse, arrive late as intensive care beds are depleted and the United States is on the verge of breaking the record for daily cases. And the governors are not exactly inflexible. Florida man Ron DeSantis, who until recently rarely...
    Tom Petty's family has issued a cease and desist notice against the Trump campaign after the late singer's 1989 hit "I Won't Back Down" was played at the president's Tulsa rally on Saturday. "Trump was in no way authorized to use this song to further a campaign that leaves too many Americans and common sense behind," the Petty family said in a statement posted to social media later that night. The statement was issued by Adria, Annakim, Dana and Jane Petty, the musician's children, widow, and first wife. pic.twitter.com/mxToRoHWNn— Tom Petty (@tompetty) June 21, 2020 Benmont Tench III, a founding member of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, echoed their sentiment.

    For those of us working at home, I’m willing to bet that it has instilled tremendous gratitude for two things: pajamas and PDFs. Whether you’re a lawyer or accountant, marketing manager or sales exec, Adobe Acrobat, along with Adobe’s suite of other products, has proved indispensable — especially sans office printers. “We are fortunate to be in an industry that is not as heavily impacted as some [by coronavirus-related layoffs]. Indeed, our software has never been more critical than today,” says Ann Lewnes, Adobe’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer, who will be a keynote speaker at Brands Across America on June 5. “We are committed to keeping businesses up and running, students learning, creatives creating, and governments connected to their citizens. As challenging as these times are, we are blessed that our mission has never been more relevant and that our products make a meaningful impact in the lives of so many people.” From Photoshop to InDesign, Dreamweaver to Flash Builder, Adobe makes working from home easier. Now, the San Jose, California-based software company is also going above...
