    (CNN)North Korea's first-reported Covid-19 outbreak is the "greatest turmoil" to befall the country since its founding more than 70 years ago, according to leader Kim Jong Un, as the isolated and impoverished nation scrambles to curb the spread of a highly transmissible virus that risks causing a major humanitarian crisis.North Korea reported 21 more deaths and 174,440 new "fever cases" Friday, according to state media KCNA, though it did not specify how many of the deaths and cases were linked to Covid, likely due to the country's extremely limited testing capacity.The climbing death toll and surging "fever cases" come after North Korea said Thursday it had identified its first ever case of Covid-19 -- an alarming development for a country with one of the world's most fragile public health systems and a largely unvaccinated population.But given the opaque nature of the regime and the country's isolation from the world -- a trend that has only exacerbated since the pandemic -- it is extremely difficult to assess the real situation on the ground. Foreign diplomats and aid workers had fled North...
    The bare-chested, Viking-hat-wearing lunatic who stormed the Capitol, barged through the halls of Congress and stood on the rostrum on the House floor has become an avatar for all that is bad, ugly, and dangerous about the far-right. This Idiot Shaman represents the insurrectionists, radicals, QAnon supporters and extremists who would rather watch the country burn than make any attempt whatsoever to heal the hardline political divisions in this country. His is also the convenient face for all those lazy people in the mainstream media, who want to blanket stereotype everyone on the right, anyone who doesn't vote for Democrats, is pro-life, owns guns, lives in the middle of the country, doesn’t watch CNN or works in a job that leaves them sore at the end of the day. To some in the media, all conservatives are the moral equivalent of the Viking-helmet-insurrectionist. This blanket stereotyping only adds to the radicalization of the ‘deplorables,’ who already know how much the powers that be hate them. But never -- and I mean absolutely never -- in my wildest dreams did I...
    DONALD Trump revealed he enjoyed an incredible meeting with Prince Philip while slamming Prince Harry for missing his grandfather's memorial service. In his world exclusive interview with Piers Morgan, the ex-President told of his encounter with the late Duke of Edinburgh who he called a "tough cookie." 2Donald Trump recalled his incredible meeting with the late Prince Philip 2Prince Philip died last year aged 99Credit: AFP And the brash billionaire said it was “terrible” that Harry had been the only senior Royal to swerve the poignant ceremony to mark first anniversary of his grandad's death. Donald Trump: I’m not a fan of Meghan, and I wasn’t  from the beginning.Poor Harry is being led around by his nose. And I think he’s an embarrassment. And I think when she spoke badly of the Royal Family, but in particular the Queen you know, I met the Queen. It was supposed to be for 20 minutes. Piers Morgan: I saw you just after you saw her. DT: Right. It was supposed to be just a quick meeting. And it was beautiful. The pomp...
    CNN+ host Chris Wallace asked 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah-Jones to respond to White parents who may feel she makes their children “feel bad” by “telling my kids that we’re all racist.” Ms. Hannah-Jones and Mr. Wallace demonstrated everything a news interview should be during the latest episode of the CNN+ series Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace, engaging in an unsparing conversation about the difficult topics that are the subject of Hannah-Jones’ journalism. Much of the interview centered around Hannah-Jones’ essay and book on the 1619 Project, which has its fair share of critics and admirers. Wallace asked Hannah-Jones to respond to a particular criticism from some parents, that “you’re tellin’ my kids that we’re all racist, and you’re making them feel bad about their country.” Ms. Hannah-Jones emphatically rejected that critique: CHRIS WALLACE: Okay, you know the reaction, especially from a lot of White parents, which is that you’re tellin’, in school particularly, that you’re tellin’ my kids that we’re all racist, and you’re making them feel bad about their country. How do you respond to that? NIKOLE HANNAH-JONES: I would love any of...
    President Barack Obama criticized social media outlets for filling what he calls a 'demand for crazy' and spreading disinformation in a way that he said he underestimated.  Obama, 60, spoke with Atlantic editor Jeffrey Goldberg Wednesday at an event hosted by the University of Chicago's Institute of Politics and The Atlantic.   'I do think that there is a demand for crazy on the internet that we have to grapple with,' Obama said. While praising how easily available information had become in the United States, he did say it led people to mass belief of conspiracy theories.   'Roughly 40 percent of the country appears convinced that the current president was elected fraudulently and that the election was rigged' he noted, with about 30-35 percent not taking advantage of vaccines for Covid-19, which he called a 'medical miracle' that had been clinically tested out by a billion people. Though Obama took a swipe at journalists as well, he said that the destruction of local media and the rise of news through big tech and social media have 'exacerbated making democracy more...
    The world learned on Wednesday that Hollywood legend Bruce Willis, 67, would retire due to his diagnosis of aphasia, a potentially devastating condition that causes a person to lose communication skills.  Willis' family announced that the condition would cause the Die Hard star to step away 'from the career that has meant so much to him.'  Around one million Americans suffer from the condition, the National Institutes of Health reports, and around 180,000 people are diagnosed with it every year.  It can manifest itself in multiple ways, and is often either the result of a head injury, a stroke, a tumor or other brain deterioration. Aphasia can be devastating as well, with experts saying it causes depression in over a third of cases, can lead to personality shifts and can even alienate friends and family from the affected person.  'Imagine being dropped in a country where you do not speak the language - cannot understand, read, write or speak. It would impact all of your interactions - this is what it is like to have aphasia,' Darlene Williamson, president of...
    Donald Trump compared the United States to a 'third world country,' complaining that grocery, jewelry and hardware stores were all missing items during a Tuesday evening interview. The former president appeared on Just The News, a show on right-wing network Real America's Voice, where he was asked about what he would 'triage' among the multiple crises plaguing the country if he were to run for office and win in 2024. 'These things -- we would've never been talking about -- I'll give you an example. Supply chain,' Trump began. 'You go to a store, you don't have bread. We're like a third world country. They don't have things. You go to buy something at Tiffany, you go to buy something at a hardware store -- high, low -- they don't have product.' 'Tiffany' is likely Tiffany & Co., a jewelry retailer that briefly leased space at a Trump Organization building in New York City in 2018 despite attacking the former president for pulling the US out of the Paris Climate Agreement the year before.  'They say -- even me, when...
    BOSTON (CBS) – The U.S. plans to welcome up to 100,000 refugees from Ukraine, but Massachusetts Congressman Stephen Lynch doesn’t think that many will come here. Lynch and Congresswoman Lori Trahan were part of a bipartisan congressional delegation that just returned from a trip to Poland, Romania, and Moldova to see the conditions at the Ukrainian border. Meeting with reporters in Boston Friday, they were asked about the refugee crisis there. Lynch said most want to stay in Ukraine or in a bordering country. “Of those that wish to come to the U.S. and Canada almost all of them had family here,” Lynch said. “Some of them consider it a point of pride staying in the country during this difficult time. I don’t know if we’ll get 100,000.” “One of the things that we learned while we were there is many people are staying close to home. They don’t want to travel far from their home,” Trahan said, adding that they’re still waiting for details on the U.S. refugee plan. It’s not known yet what states they’ll be headed to,...

    As Russian forces continued to advance their invasion of Ukraine on Thursday evening, hundreds of Ukrainians living in the Bay Area, as well as their supporters, gathered outside San Francisco City Hall to denounce the actions of President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and what they feared could become a full-scale war in Europe. In a sea of blue and yellow, demonstrators waved Ukrainian flags, donned Ukrainian jerseys and held signs with a slew of slogans like “stop Russian bloodshed in Ukraine,” “Russia is an occupant” and “Pray for Ukraine.” Vitalii Burak’s handmade sign read “Putler, hands off Ukraine.” His message –featuring a combination of Putin and Hitler — was one of many that compared Russia’s leader to the dictator of Nazi Germany. “A friend of mine who is there, a missile shot right into his building,” he said, adding that his friend sent him photos of blood spilled in his stairway. “It’s just a city — not a military object. It’s just peaceful people who are sleeping in their beds and then the next thing they know, a missile...
    A woman left a romantic dinner with her boyfriend after he brought his own bell to the restaurant and continually rang it to the waiting staff to get their attention.   Reddit user Blain-Ad-5996, who is a 30-year-old woman from the UK, took to the 'Am I The A******?' thread to see if she was right to feel angry with her boyfriend. She has been dating the man in question, Rhett, 31, who is American, for four months but when he whipped out a bell he'd brought along to their latest date, she was horrified.  He explained that it's acceptable in American because 'people don't give a s***', and she promptly walked out.  The woman asked the Reddit community for their stance on the situation, explaining that in the aftermath, Rhett has been annoyed with her for 'overreacting'.

    A father in North Carolina slammed Critical Race Theory (CRT) and declared that parents are reclaiming control during a school board meeting in Cabarrus County on Monday. Brian Echevarria said the community realized the politics surrounding the mask “distraction” had lost steam and it was time for citizens to move forward. “And one of the things I wanted to thank you for tonight was the resolution, the non-discrimination resolution, the CRT deal,” he continued: Because it’s happening, and as a parent I speak to other parents. There’s a few things that we don’t want. I’m bi-racial, I’m bi-lingual, I’m multi-cultural. The fact is in America, in North Carolina, I can do anything I want and I teach that to my children. And the person who tells my little pecan-colored kids that they’re somehow oppressed based on the color of their skin would be absolutely wrong and absolutely at war with me. And I think that’s the same for every parent. What the masks showed us is that parents, the most powerful group of people in our country, that they’re taking...
    ZHANGJIAKOU, China (AP) — Another Olympic gold medal is hers for the taking. Eileen Gu has bigger goals than that. The 18-year-old freeskiing star, as easy to spot on magazine covers as on the ski slopes, spelled it all out during a candid Q&A after she breezed through her qualifying round Thursday on the halfpipe. In the final, Gu will try to add to the gold (big air) and silver (slopestyle) medals she has already won at the Beijing Games. She hasn’t lost a contest all season in the halfpipe. If she comes through, wins the gold and becomes the first action-sports athlete to win three medals at the same Olympics, she’s well aware it won’t dampen the speculation, or silence the critics who wonder why an American-born teenager would choose to ski for China on her sport’s biggest stage. “I’m glad you asked,” she said to the first of a series of questions thrown at her about her nationality, her mission and her future as she held court in the interview area. “People sometimes don’t know what to do...

    Former President Trump condemned investigations into his business and the Jan 6. attack in an interview on Wednesday Former President Donald Trump slammed Democrats and their 'witch hunts' for investigating his adult children on Wednesday evening, claiming they had ruled President Joe Biden's son Hunter to be off limits.  'There's never been anything like it in the history of politics in this country,' he said in a phone interview. 'It's a witch hunt.' He spoke to a small number of reporters to promote a coffee table book celebrating his time in office. But he could not resist condemning Biden's first year in office as well as hitting back at the latest twists in two high-profile probes that had put his daughter Ivanka as well as sons Eric and Don Jr. in the sights of investigators. A day earlier CNN reported that the congressional panel investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol had obtained records of phones belonging to Eric as well as Kimberly Guilfoyle, fiancée to Don Jr. At the same time, the New York attorney general is...
    President Joe Biden will call out Donald Trump as the 'singular responsibility' behind the January 6th insurrection when he travels to Capitol Hill Thursday to mark the one year anniversary of the day. Biden will hold Trump responsible for the 'chaos and carnage' of that day, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at her press briefing on Wednesday. Five people died in the aftermath of the Trump's supporters storming the building, which caused thousands of dollars worth of damage throughout the Capitol complex. Biden will 'lay out the significance of what happened in the Capitol and the singular responsibility President Trump has for the chaos and carnage that we saw and he will forcibly push back on the lies spread by the former president in an attempt to mislead the American people and his own supporters as well as distract from his role in what happened,' Psaki said.  The Biden administration has been reluctant to directly discuss Trump particularly given that the former president continues the false claim that he won the 2020 presidential election. Biden and Vice President...
