    President Joe Biden on Friday lashed out at critics as he defended his administration's actions to relieve the infant formula shortage that has panicked parents worried about feeding their babies. 'If we'd been better mind readers, I guess we could have,' Biden said when asked if his administration should have acted sooner. Biden was speaking at an event on community policing and said he would only speak on that topic before - somewhat grumpily - conceding to talk about formula shortages. 'I'll answer the baby from the question because all of a sudden it's on the front page of every newspaper,' he said.  The president predicted it would only be a 'matter of weeks or less' for there to be more formula on the shelves. 'We're going to be in a matter of weeks - or less - getting significantly where more formula is on shelves,' he said. Biden said his administration was working hard on the matter and had 'nothing more urgent' on its plate. 'This is a process we working very, very hard. There's nothing more urgent we're...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis public pools might be still empty, but the parks staff is getting them ready for the summer with a cleaning, and a push to hire more lifeguards. City golf courses also have several openings for the summer, according to Larry Umphrey, director of aquatics, athletics, ice arenas and golf for the Minneapolis Parks Board.

He says increased wages is something they have been offering across the board to be more competitive in an oversaturated job market. “I think the lifeguards went from $14.50 to $17.50 [an hour], up from to about $18 – $21 [an hour] now for our part-time lifeguards,” said Umphrey.

    Jordan Montgomery has been doing well. It’s everyone around him who’s letting him down. We’ve all been there. The elastic lefty in the Yankees’ rotation has a 2.90 ERA through his first six starts of the year. He’s completed 31 innings, striking out 25 hitters and walking five. With a WHIP under 1.00 and only two home runs allowed all season, Montgomery has excelled at limiting damage both large and small. Opponents are flailing their way to a .209 batting average against Montgomery, who has a better walk rate, FIP and has thrown more innings than Gerrit Cole through each of their first six starts. Yet, Montgomery’s win-loss record sits at 0-1 with five no-decisions. Still think the pitcher win is an important stat? The Yankees have not scored more than five runs in any of Montgomery’s outings this year. In the only game where they did plate five runners, only two of them were in support of Montgomery, with the other three coming after he was pulled. Since the beginning of the 2021 season, Montgomery has made 31 starts...

    The Brooklyn Nets were swept out of the NBA playoffs by their division rival, the Boston Celtics, ending any hope they had of lifting the Larry O’Brien trophy this season. The sweep also spelled disaster for aging stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant as they search for their first title since teaming up in 2019. The disappointing season has led many sports shows and personalities alike to pile on the criticism for former MVP Durant, who looked a shell of himself against Jayson Tatum, something that hasn’t happened in nearly a decade. One of those talking heads is Colin Cowherd, declaring Thursday on The Herd that Milwaukee Bucks’ star Giannis Antetokounmpo is the best player in the league today, and better than Durant ever was. “Giannis is better than KD has ever been. I hate to break it to you. KD was never the best player in this league. He was on the best team and was finals MVP, I’m not disputing that. But he was never better than LeBron [James] in his prime. And I never think there’s a...
    If you’re looking to be successful, it turns out being resilient is a key factor. That’s one of the takeaways from a new global survey, which revealed 88% of respondents shared that sentiment — saying that to be successful, people can’t be afraid to make mistakes. 4The key to achieving your life goals are to make many mistakes, according to a studyCredit: Getty 4According to a global survey, 84% of business owners and employees see mistakes as an opportunity to growCredit: Getty And 85% don’t believe they’d be where they are today if they stopped trying after making one mistake at work. The global survey of 8,000 small business owners and employees across 15 countries included data from 2,000 Americans — 1,000 small business owners and 1,000 employees with 10+ years of experience in their fields. Results found that 84% of small business owners and employees globally see making mistakes as an opportunity for growth. The small business owners surveyed reported experiencing an average of two unsuccessful ideas before finding one that worked — but these ideas created learning opportunities...
    The Nets don’t believe they are too far off from being better than the Celtics in their first-round match up. The Nets entered Monday facing an 0-3 series deficit no team in NBA playoff history has ever overcome. They lost Game 1 on a broken-play, buzzer-beating layup, blew a 17-point lead to lose Game 2 by seven, and lost their first playoff game at home by six points on Saturday. “I don’t think we’ve been far off,” sharpshooter Seth Curry said Sunday. “I know everything in the playoffs is magnified, but we haven’t been too far off from winning a lot of these games and being in this series.” Of the 143 teams that have faced an 0-3 playoff deficit, none have come back to win, and 89 of the other 143 teams that have taken a 3-0 lead swept their opponent in Game 4. “I think you have to have perspective always in life,” head coach Steve Nash said. “It looks ominous, 0-3. We had Game 1 won if they took one more dribble. So you have to always...
    The Republican National Commission voted Thursday to withdraw from participation with the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, calling the group 'biased' and vowing to pursue 'better platforms.' The unanimous vote echoed former President Donald Trump's longtime complaints about presidential debates organized by the commission, which he accused in 2016 and 2020 of being biased against him.   RNC chair Ronna McDaniel, a Trump loyalist, called the Commission on Presidential Debates 'biased' and said the commission 'has refused to enact simple and commonsense reforms to help ensure fair debates including hosting debates before voting begins and selecting moderators who have never worked for candidates on the debate stage.' She said debates 'are an important part of the democratic process' and said the RNC 'is committed to free and fair debates.'  The The Republican National Commission voted to withdraw from participation with the Commission on Presidential Debates, a group former President Donald Trump has attacked repeatedly The vote comes after a series of RNC moves against the commission, including a June 2021 letter where McDaniel voiced 'extreme disappointment' with the commission.  She said the commission...
    Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, said Wednesday on the Senate floor that he will be the "first to admit" that past Republican-appointed Supreme Court nominees "should have been handled better" during prior confirmation hearings. The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee has been an ardent defender against GOP scrutiny of current Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's record as she heads toward a likely confirmation later this week. In regards to Republican criticism, he said, "We've done it too on the Democratic side." "And I'm going to be the first to admit, as I look back in history, there are things that should have been handled better when Republican nominees were before us," Durbin said.

    Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “America Reports,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) railed against him chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci for warning about a return of restrictions due to a new strain of COVID-19. Paul said Fauci was “flat-out wrong” to push for more restrictions. He called Fauci a “menace” who “hasn’t been right really about anything since the start” of the coronavirus pandemic. “[I]f you believe in Dr. Fauci, what you should do immediately is go get stickers and make sure they are on the floor, everywhere you go, and a yardstick so you know you are six feet away from people — and Plexiglas,” Paul suggested. “Carry Plexiglas around with you because Dr. Fauci thinks that Plexiglas somehow, you know, reflects the virus away from you. None of what he’s been for has worked. Not one thing he has advocated, other than the vaccine, and I’m not against the vaccine, but the interesting thing is this, and he won’t admit this to the public: If you take a sample of blood from 1,000 people anywhere in...
    There was once another loathsome Russian dictator called Vladimir – in this case Lenin – who is popularly believed to have said: 'There are decades where nothing happens; there are weeks where decades happen.' He didn't. The real quote is from a letter Karl Marx wrote to Friedrich Engels in 1863, in which the founder of Communism argued that 20 years were 'no more than a day where major developments […] are concerned, though these may be again succeeded by days into which 20 years are compressed'. Since Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine just over three weeks ago, it does feel as if decades have been compressed into days. A great many commentators have rushed to declare this is one of history's great turning points – the end of one epoch, the beginning of another.  Germany's Chancellor Olaf Scholz referred to a 'Zeitenwende' (a 'turning of the times'). 'The world after this,' he declared, 'is no longer the same as the world before.' And in some obvious ways he is undeniably right. With its 'policy for the East'...

    (CNN)The flu vaccine has not been a great a match for the predominant viruses this season, preliminary data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows -- but the season isn't over, and the estimate could change, the agency told CNN on Thursday. The flu season has also been atypically mild compared with pre-pandemic flu seasons. Flu vaccine significantly lowers risk of heart attack, stroke among high-risk groups, researchers findFlu vaccines are based largely on information that lags. The flu virus is constantly changing. Each February, a panel of US experts helps the US Food and Drug Administration decide which strains to include in the upcoming flu season's vaccine, to be rolled out in the fall. Each shot can protect against only three or four strains of the flu, so scientists have to make their best guess about which will be circulating in the fall. The panel bases its decisions on data about the common strains circulating around the globe throughout the year. In some years, the vaccine is a better match to strains that hit the US...
