    Boxing has moved closer to being thrown out of the Olympics for good after the embattled federation governing the amateur discipline re-elected its incumbent Russian president unopposed following the controversial decision to ban his only rival from standing against him on the eve of the vote. The International Boxing Association election had been scheduled for Friday but was pushed back by 24 hours to allow the Court of Arbitration for Sport to rule on the appeal from Dutch candidate Boris van der Vorst, who was sensationally barred from challenging Umar Kremlev by an interim nominations panel. The CAS dismissed Van der Vorst's urgent attempt to block the vote on Friday night and Kremlev, IBA president since December 2020, was officially re-elected for a four-year term at an extraordinary congress in Istanbul on Saturday - an outcome that plunges boxing's Olympic future further into doubt. Boxing has not had its place confirmed on the programme for Paris 2024 and has been left off the schedule for the 2028 Games in Los Angeles.  The popular sport featured at last year's postponed Olympics...

Jane Fonda shared that she is perfectly fine with getting older and is simply happy to be doing as well as she is at the age of 84. “I’m super-conscious that I’m closer to death, and it doesn’t really bother me that much,” the “Grace and Frankie” star said on “CBS Sunday Morning.” “What bothers me is that my body is, you know, basically not mine!” she continued. “My knees are not mine, my hips are not mine, my shoulder’s not mine. You’re looking at somebody who’s only me from [the neck] up.” Fonda has undergone multiple knee and hip replacement surgeries in recent years, but she acknowledged that she is still in pretty good shape as her Hollywood career continues to flourish in her eighth decade of life....
    Liudmila Chernetska | Istock | Getty Images The U.S. Department of Education recently announced a number of massive changes to the federal student loan system, which it says could bring millions of borrowers closer to debt forgiveness. Federal student loan borrowers have long run into serious issues, including misinformation from their servicers, too many choices and complicated terms. The Education Department is now trying to fix those problems. Outstanding student loan debt in the U.S. exceeds $1.7 trillion, burdening households more than credit card or auto debt. More than 40 million Americans are in debt for their education, and up to a quarter are in delinquency or default. "The Department of Education will begin to remedy years of administrative failures," U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said Tuesday in a statement.More from Your Money Your Future:Here's a look at more stories on how to manage, grow and protect your money for the years ahead.

    The Chicago Cubs couldn’t complete a sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers in the opening series of the delayed 2022 season. But it was an interesting start featuring a stirring opening-day win, a benches-clearing incident Saturday, the debuts of free agents Marcus Stroman and Seiya Suzuki and a combined attendance of 98,337, which included several thousand no-shows every day. Here are three takeaways from the weekend at Wrigley Field. 1. The Cubs denied the Brewers’ ‘lollygagging’ accusation. Cubs manager David Ross wasn’t buying Andrew McCutchen’s argument that pitcher Keegan Thompson should’ve hit him with the first pitch in the eighth inning Saturday instead of “lollygagging” and taking four pitches to hit him in alleged retaliation for the Brewers hitting Willson Contreras and Ian Happ. McCutchen said it was the way players handled things back in the day. “No, that wasn’t a thing,” Ross said. “No other team ever pulled anybody that I played with about how they wanted to get hit. I don’t know anything about that. But you know, maybe I’m a little bit old-school. “Times change too. Listen, nobody...
    Maryland’s House of Delegates passed a bill Thursday that would make the process of declawing cats illegal unless it’s needed to resolve a medical condition. House Bill 0022 passed with a 112-25 majority, which would make declawing — the removal of a cat’s claws — illegal for a veterinary to perform. According to the legislation, any animal physician found performing the procedure would face a $5,000 fine for a first offense and up to a $10,000 fine for a second offense. In addition, the veterinarian will have their license suspended or revoked. More Maryland News Supporters said declawing is painful and inhumane for a cat. State Sen. Cheryl Kagan, who introduced similar legislation in the Maryland Senate, told lawmakers in February that declawing or lasering a cat’s claws off would cause multiple health problems. Those issues include “limping, lifelong pain, problems using a litter box and (the cat’s ability in) defending itself.” “[It] not just taking off and doing a little manicure and then trimming their nails, it’s actually removing the first knuckle of their paws,” Kagan said....
    DENVER (CBS4)– Colorado lawmakers are another step closer to making Juneteenth a state holiday, and Gov. Jared Polis is backing the bill. He joined the bill’s sponsors and other supporters at the state Capitol on Wednesday morning. (credit: CBS) “By adopting Juneteenth as a state holiday, we’re paying tribute to the millions of Black Americans who endured indescribably suffering under the horrors of slavery,” Polis said. “On Juneteenth, we will honor the rich history of the African American community here in Colorado, but also across the country.” The bill (SB22-139) would make Juneteenth, June 19, Colorado’s 11th state holiday. It was introduced last month by Senators Janet Buckner and James Coleman as well as Rep. Leslie Herod, chair of the Black Democratic Legislative Caucus. “A lot of Black folks emancipated to Colorado,” Herod said. “People don’t know the legacy of emancipation that Colorado really has. We have a rich history and I’m excited that we’re going to be able to celebrate this year.” Coloradans have long celebrated Juneteenth, in large part thanks to Norman Harris. He’s president of the...
    Prince Andrew made eight trips to China as a guest of an organisation accused of being a puppet for the Chinese Communist Party’s feared intelligence agency. During the visits – most made on behalf of his [email protected] business mentoring initiative – the Duke of York heralded closer UK-China co-operation, prompting critics to this weekend accuse him of being a ‘useful idiot’ for Beijing. The visits, made between 2010 and 2019, were at the invitation of the Chinese People’s Institute of Foreign Affairs (CPIFA). It is alleged the group answers to the United Front Work Department (UFWD), the Communist regime’s intelligence and propaganda unit. This month, MI5 said the UFWD was involved in ‘foreign interference’ and was seeking to ‘corrupt and coerce’ British politicians. Prince Andrew, pictured left, has been described as a 'useful idiot' over his willingness to facilitate contact the Chinese regime and President Xi, right Senior Tory MP Sir Iain Duncan Smith said: ‘It is unfortunate that Prince Andrew appears to have been used this way' Senior Tory MP Sir Iain Duncan Smith said: ‘It is unfortunate that...
    Legal experts, including former federal prosecutors, appear in agreement that U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is likely to be facing a good deal of trouble from the Dept. of Justice after an NBC News report reveals his ex-girlfriend testified before a grand jury in his ongoing sex trafficking probe Wednesday and is in talks for an immunity deal. NBC News’ Marc Caputo reports this is “a major development that suggests the Department of Justice may be moving closer to indicting him.” Gaetz’s ex-girlfriend “has been in talks for months with prosecutors about an immunity deal. Under a possible deal, she would avoid prosecution for obstruction of justice in return for testifying in the investigation into whether Gaetz in 2017 had sex with a 17-year-old female for money and whether months later he and others violated a federal law prohibiting people for paying for prostitutes overseas.” Based on the NBC News report legal experts are saying it’s likely time is running out for Gaetz.

    Dave Chapelle is set to return to Netflix despite facing a huge backlash for his comments on transgender people in his special, The Closer, for the streaming giant. Netlfix announced Monday that Chapelle will be headlining their Netflix Is a Joke festival at the Hollywood Bowl next year that will be partially filmed for an upcoming series.  It comes just a few months after Chappelle faced calls to be canceled over jokes made in his stand-up special which was almost entirely centered around members of the LGBTQ+ community.  The comedian courted controversy with his jokes in which he asserts 'gender is a fact,' and criticizes what he says is the thin skin of the trans community.

              more   The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) announced Tuesday that it has formally accepted Kairos Power’s Construction Permit Application (CPA) for the Hermes low-power demonstration reactor to be built at the East Tennessee Technology Park Heritage Center site in Oak Ridge, according to a press release by Kairos Power. The Kairos application seeks to build the company’s “Hermes” test reactor, according to the NRC. The 35-megawatt, non-power reactor would use molten salt to cool the reactor core, providing operational data to support the development of a larger version meant for a commercial nuclear power plant. According to its website, Kairos Power is a “nuclear technology, engineering and manufacturing company whose mission is to enable the world’s transition to clean energy with the ultimate goal of dramatically improving people’s quality of life while protecting the environment.” “This licensing milestone represents a significant achievement, concluding a tremendous cross-functional effort by the Kairos Power team to complete the application just 18 months after the decision to build the Hermes reactor was made,” Mike Laufer, Kairos Power co-founder and CEO said in a statement....
    Veteran comedian Dave Chappelle proclaimed this week to a sold-out crowd of 19,000 people in San Francisco, California, “man, I love being canceled,” adding “I’m going through something — it might be history.” “Man, I love being cancelled, it’s a huge relief. It’s like getting Capone on tax evasion,” Chappelle told his audience of 19,000 on Thursday night while kicking off his 10-city comedy tour, according to a report by Rolling Stone. “For the past three or four weeks — they’ve been saying in the news that I’ve been cancelled,” the comedian said near the end of the night. “It doesn’t matter. The point is, no matter what they say, we are together. I’m going through something. It might be history.” Since the October 5 debut of his Netflix special, The Closer Chappelle has been under fire by transgender activists who took offense to his jokes. Last month, Netlfix’s corporate office was besieged by outraged transgender activists who took offense to Chappelle’s comedy.

    A Texas school board has moved towards firing a principal over claims he pushed critical theory after he raised eyebrows over an intimate Facebook photoshoot with his wife.  On Monday, the Grapevine Colleyville Independent School District school board unanimously voted 7-0 for the non-renewal of Colleyville Heritage High School principal Dr. James Whitfield's contract.  It is the first step in a two-step process that could see Whitfield lose his job. He will now be forced to publicly defend his position before a final vote is held on whether he should remain as principal.   Whitfield was placed on paid administrative leave in August after a former school board candidate accused him of teaching and promoting critical race theory. Concerns were also raised from the district about a decade-old beachside photoshoot he took with his wife for a previously anniversary.  They were snapped enjoying an intimate -  but fully clothed - outdoor embrace for a shoot with a professional photographer and sparked concerns after they were uncovered on his Facebook profile.  Whitfield, (pictured) who has denied promoting Critical Race Theory, addressed the board...

    DEADLY Asian tiger mosquitoes are inching closer to the UK after being detected just across the English Channel, authorities have warned. The dangerous insects have been discovered in the commune of Domagne in the department of Ile-et-Vilaine in the western Brittany region, the French Regional Health Agency said in a statement. 2The deadly Asian tiger mosquitoes are inching closer and closer to the UKCredit: Oxford Scientific - Getty Officials are now getting ready to execute an extensive insecticide campaign in a bid to kill all of the macabre mozzies that threaten to wreak havoc across the UK. The health agency reminded residents to minimise the risk of being exposed as much as possible, as the insects swarm France’s northwesternmost region. A single bite allows the mosquitoes to produce up to 200 eggs - so it is key for people to know how to keep their bites at bay. The insects carry lethal viruses such as yellow fever, dengue fever, chikungunya fever and Zika, which have the terrifying potential to cripple communities, on top of the pandemic. Health chiefs have told...

                      by J.D. Davidson  Ohio lawmakers return from recess in September with an opportunity to make the state the “most military friendly state in the country,” following the introduction of a bill that requires government agencies to ask about veteran status. The bill, introduced earlier this month by Sen. Niraj Antani, R-Miamisburg, proposes to provide opportunities to better connect veterans with services. It also requires government agencies to ask about active duty military status and inform service members of other resources. “Wright Patterson Air Force Base is so critical to our region’s economy and our nation’s security,” said Antani, whose district includes Wright Patterson. “I will continue to work hard to help our active duty military on base at the state level, and this bill will make us a leader across the nation.” Antani said the bill is a priority for the U.S. Department of Defense and one of two bills not yet passed by the General Assembly as part of the DOD’s 2021 Key Personnel and Readiness Issues Supporting Service...

But how much better? Enough to win the NFL’s most mediocre division, which was decided via pillow fight in 2020? Possibly … with an asterisk, because there are asterisks attached to every NFL draft. This was Dave Gettleman’s fourth draft as Giants general manager. At 70 years old, with a 15-33 record in his first three years and with a standing mandate from Giants ownership to better his “batting average,’’ it’s possible this might have been his last as a GM, pending 2021 results.
