    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), hosting a roundtable discussion at a monoclonal antibody treatment site in Miami that was forced to close due to the Biden administration’s actions, explained why the administration’s decision to prohibit the treatments was “fundamentally wrong,” concluding that “this is a lesson as to why you should not have the government controlling medicine in this country.” “What they could have said is anyone who’s got appointments for the next five days can be honored or maybe they could say two weeks from now,” DeSantis said of the decision of U.S. federal health regulators, which resulted in thousands of Floridians having their appoints canceled “abruptly without notice.” The governor explained further: I still wouldn’t have liked that. But man, to leave people hanging the way they have — it’s really, really problematic. So we’re very much opposed to the way — particularly the [way] thousands of Floridians who were in the system waiting to get treatment — for them to wake up to an email saying that these treatments are now prohibited and tough luck, go take an aspirin. That’s just fundamentally wrong. That is not...
    Art Spiegelman discussed the recent decision by a Tennessee school district to remove his critically acclaimed graphic novel on CNN Thursday and slammed the move as having “the breath of autocracy and fascism.” Tennessee’s McMinn County School Board voted unanimously earlier in the month to ban the novel, which in 1992 became the first and so far only graphic novel to win the Pulitzer Prize, due to “naked pictures” and language like “God Damn” appearing in the book. The board voted to remove the novel, which depicts Jews as mice and Nazis as cats in its telling of the Holocaust, from the eighth-grade curriculum. Spiegelman, being interviewed by CNN’s John Berman and Brianna Keilar on Holocaust Remembrance Day, noted the importance of teaching the Holocaust in schools and called it a “harbinger of things of to come.” “That’s disturbing, that’s terrifying,” reacted Keilar. “Which makes it more the more troubling if you don’t want to teach it and don’t want to use the tools available to discuss it,” Berman concluded. Spiegelman was asked to explain his reaction to the school...
    Billionaire election spending has drastically increased over the last 12 years as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling, according to TruthOut. Americans For Fair Taxation (AFFT) recently analyzed data that breaks down election campaign contributions. Their assessment suggests that there is an upward trend in billionaire donations to political campaigns. Per the assessment, "billionaires have increased their donations from $31 million total during the 2010 election cycle to a whopping $1.2 billion in the 2020 election cycle, or about 39 times more." In short, the amount spent in just 2020 accounts for almost 40% of all billionaire political campaign donations since 1990. In fact, spending in the four-year span between 2012 and 2016 is an indication of how trends have changed dramatically. In 2016, billionaires spent approximately $682 million in campaign donations as opposed to just $233 million back in 2012. So how did the Citizens United ruling open this door? Per Truthout: "In January of 2010, conservative Supreme Court justices ruled in their Citizens United decision that restricting corporate donations was...
    The Broncos’ decision to hire Nathaniel Hackett as their head coach could give them a chance to land Aaron Rodgers.  Packers fans still wallowing in the misery of their team’s early playoff exit must brace themselves for the mountain of Aaron Rodgers rumors headed their way this offseason. The Broncos’ decision to poach former Green Bay offensive coordinator as their new head coach does provide a plausible reason for Rodgers to consider a move to the Mile High City. Rodgers likely won’t make a decision about where he’ll play next season anytime soon, but it’s easy to see why Denver could be an appealing destination. The future Hall of Famer has a high degree of comfort with Hackett’s offensive system. Rodgers isn’t going to leave Green Bay for a team that doesn’t feature an appealing style of offense or isn’t a contender.Can Nathaniel Hackett recruit Aaron Rodgers to the Broncos?Denver also boasts an impressive group of pass catchers that is deeper than the group Rodgers works with in Green Bay.

    LONDON — European stocks are expected to plunge at the open on Thursday as global markets react badly to the latest monetary policy decision from the U.S. Federal Reserve. The U.K.'s FTSE index is expected to open 147 points lower at 7,323, Germany's DAX down 379 points at 15,071, France's CAC 40 down 175 points at 6,804 and Italy's FTSE MIB 675 points lower at 25,907, according to data from IG. Global markets are reacting badly to the Federal Reserve's indication on Wednesday that it could soon raise interest rates for the first time in more than three years. The Fed's policymaking group said a quarter-percentage point increase to its benchmark short-term borrowing rate is likely forthcoming. It would be the first increase since December 2018. The post-meeting statement from the Federal Open Market Committee did not provide a specific time for when the increase will come, though indications are that it could happen as soon as the March meeting.  The statement comes in response to inflation running at its hottest level in nearly 40 years. U.S. stocks initially rallied Wednesday even after the...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- After serving nearly 30 years on the nation's highest court, Justice Stephen Breyer, the court's oldest member, has decided its time to step down.For years, the 83-year-old San Francisco native has been known as the court's ultimate pragmatist. And his brother, Judge Charles Breyer, told ABC7 News that it's that pragmatic thinking that led him to make this difficult decision."He didn't want to die on the bench," Judge Breyer, who is the U.S. District judge for the Northern District of California, told ABC7 News. "I don't think he looked at it that he had to stay until the last moment...he thought, I think, that for the good of the institution, which is really his concern, that this is an appropriate time to create a vacancy."Breyer was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1994 by then-President Bill Clinton. In recent years, as the balance of the court tipped to the right, Breyer, who is considered a moderate liberal, faced growing pressure to step down.RELATED: Liberal Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to retire"There's a keen, really urgent awareness...

    The weekend slate of NFL playoff games was more than just riveting television for Chicago Bears fans. Five coordinators under consideration for the Bears head coaching job coached in the games. One executive in the running to be the Bears new general manager saw his team advance to the AFC Championship game. And one longtime thorn in the Bears’ side ruminated about what’s next after his loss. As the Bears enter Week 3 of their GM and coach searches, here’s what mattered from the games Saturday and Sunday. 1. The teams of five coordinators who have interviewed with the Bears all lost. Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett were five of the 10 coaches the Bears interviewed the last two weeks.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Activists at the 49th annual March for Life told Fox News Digital they were excited 2022 could be the year Roe v. Wade gets overturned. The March for Life is an annual march to the Supreme Court that started in 1973, the same year as the landmark abortion decision in Roe. The theme for the march this year was "equality begins in the womb." Activists are hopeful that Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which was argued before the Supreme Court in December, will overturn or weaken Roe v. Wade. The decision on the consequential abortion case is expected by this summer. WATCH NOW:  Video"I think this is a great year to be here because of the upcoming Dobbs decision," one marcher named Katie told Fox News Digital.

    The fact Minnesota can be recognized widely as being a good place for environmental protection and yet still fail to deliver in a number of important areas shows many parallels with the paradox that the state is simultaneously both good and bad for Black people in which to live.  The two connect. Despite the environmental accolades, there are some serious challenges for this state; surface waters that fail to support beneficial uses, soils that are contaminated with forever chemicals, atmospheric pollution from wildfires and vehicles and problems in homes with contaminants like lead in paint and pipes. Those living in older properties and without health insurance are more at risk from environmental contaminants than the rest. To address these anomalies three areas need attention – more coherent decision-making, more inclusive decision-making and paying more attention to both in responding to funding opportunities.

    The NCAA’s updated policy on transgender participation threw into question whether Penn swimmer Lia Thomas will be able to race come the winter championships in March. The NCAA announced late Wednesday its policy for transgender participation will be determined on a sport-by-sport basis. If there is no national governing body for the sport, then the NCAA sport will follow the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) policy. The NCAA said the policy would start with the winter championships. The NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming & Diving Championships are set for March 16-19 at the McAuley Aquatic Center in Atlanta. "Based on the new NCAA policy put out on Wednesday, there is nothing that would preclude Lia from racing in March at the NCAA Championships. There is a framework, some guidance, but nothing that anybody would recognize as a line-in-the-sand threshold," Braden Keith, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of SwimSwam, told Fox News on Thursday.

    (CNN)On Wednesday evening, the US Supreme Court removed the last obstacle to a congressional committee receiving critical documents about the January 6 insurrection. The National Archives has already started turning over Trump administration documents to the committee investigating the January 6 attacks, with more to follow.

    Joe Manchin took to the Senate floor Wednesday afternoon to voice his absolute opposition to eliminating the filibuster as President Joe Biden was across the city delivering his first press conference in 78 days. 'Eliminating the filibuster would be the easy way out. It wasn't meant to be easy,' the West Virginia centrist Democrat said during a Senate floor debate on voting rights legislation that will see a vote later Wednesday evening. 'I cannot support such a perilous force for this nation when elected leaders are sent to Washington to unite our country not to divide our country,' he continued. 'We're called the United States not the Divide States – and putting politics and party aside is what we're supposed to do.' 'It's time we do the hard work to forge a difficult compromise that can stand the test of time. And that's what we're here to do.' Democratic Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema has also voiced her opposition to ending the filibuster, making her and Manchin isolated against their party on the issue.

    New Conservative MP Christian Wakeford ‘crossed the floor’ of Parliament Wednesday, defecting from the party of government to the opposition, writing that having “wrestled” with his conscience over the decision. Bury South representative Christian Wakeford, elected for the first time in 2019, defected from the Conservatives to Labour in Parliament just minutes before the Prime Minister was due to take questions from the floor on Wednesday, a move timed to generate maximum impact. Despite the Prime Minister’s Questions session starting with Wakeford’s defection and ending with former Brexit Secretary and Tory veteran David Davis telling him “in the name of God, go”, the Prime Minister seemed in good spirits at the dispatch box and enjoyed cheers from Conservative backbenchers. While it has been widely claimed that plots against the Prime Minister to launch a coup are well advanced, it is not clear that this means the end of the Johnson leadership. While Wakeford’s defection letter was scathing in its condemnation of the Prime Minister, eagle-eyed followers of Westminster machinations noted that Wakeford just last year co-sponsored and voted for a...

    American tennis legend John McEnroe has gone off on a bizarre pro-Novak Djokovic rant in which he labelled the visa saga 'total bull****' and questioned if the Serbian tennis star really did meet with a journalist while Covid-positive.  The veteran player was due to commentate the opening night of the Grand Slam for ESPN on Monday but decided to weigh in on the Djokovic debacle first.  McEnroe told fellow tennis star Chris Evert he didn't quite know what part of the last 12 days to analyse, but described the events in Melbourne as 'total and utter chaos'.

    Novak Djokovic fled Australia late on Sunday night after 11 days of remarkable legal wrangling saw the tennis champion finally exhaust his options, and left with no choice but to be escorted to the airport by AFP guards. The 20-time Grand Slam winner now faces being banned from Australia for three years, as human rights groups warn the case sets a worrying precedent that sweeping powers can be used to deport visitors over political ideologies. The controversial decision was met with horror by his fans, family and politicians back in Serbia, with Djokovic's outraged father labelling it an 'assassination attempt' against his son and President Aleksandar Vucic slamming 'lying' Australian officials.  But Scott Morrison, and likely millions of Australians, supported the move, with the prime minister saying he 'welcomed the decision to keep our borders strong'. The tennis star lost his last-ditch bid to stay in Melbourne and compete in the Australian Open on Sunday after three federal court judges unanimously ruled he did not have grounds to dispute Immigration Minister Alex Hawke's visa cancellation.  The 34-year-old, who has been ordered...

    Melbourne (CNN)Tennis star Novak Djokovic has lost a legal challenge against a decision revoking his visa for the second time and will leave Australia without contesting the Australian Open. In a virtual hearing on Sunday, three Federal Court judges unanimously dismissed Djokovic's application to overturn the immigration minister's decision to cancel his visa, but did not publish reasons for the ruling.

    Novak Djokovic has failed to convince three senior judges of his right to stay in Melbourne to compete in the Australian Open and will be deported - after the government's lawyers argued he'd become an 'icon' for anti-vaxxers.  The 20-time Grand Slam champion had his appeal heard in the Federal Court on Sunday in a last ditch attempt to stay and compete for the title. Chief Justice James Allsop, Justice Anthony Besanko and Justice David O'Callaghan unanimously decided Djokovic did not have grounds to dispute Immigration Minister Alex Hawke's deportation order.  Mr Hawke wielded his discretionary power on Friday afternoon to deport Djokovic despite a court ruling last week in his favour. But the odds were stacked against Djokovic heading into Sunday's hearing despite his previous court win, because Mr Hawke's power is so broad.  Chief Justice James Allsop wanted to make clear Djokovic had not launched an official appeal against Mr Hawke's decision. Instead, he had the opportunity to have the judges review the order based on its merit. The world No.1 was required to prove to the court that...
    Prince Andrew was said to be tearful after the Queen removed his honorary military titles, it was claimed tonight. The Duke of York, who can no longer be known as His Royal Highness 'in any official capacity', is expected to write to his former regiments to express his remorse at having to leave, the Sunday Mirror reported. 'The Prince was tearful when told the news even though he had expected it. He feels that he has let so many people down, not least his mother, during her Platinum Jubilee year,' a senior defence source said. The news comes as the prince was said to have hosted a shooting party for about 12 friends and relatives on Friday - a day after the monarch's decision to remove the titles.  The group is understood to have gathered at his Royal Lodge home before heading off for the shoot in Great Windsor Park, Berkshire.

    Lawyers for Novak Djokovic will make a last-ditch bid for the world No. 1 to stay in Australia by hitting Immigration Minister Alex Hawke with a new argument when the blockbuster case goes before the Federal Court on Sunday. A final ruling on whether the unvaccinated tennis star can play in Monday's Australian Open is almost certain to be made by the court, after the Serbian had his visa cancelled for a second time on the grounds his participation in the tournament would 'foster anti-vaccination sentiment'. But the 34-year-old's crack legal team have a plan to demolish Immigration Minister Alex Hawke's decision by arguing there is no legal basis for the Minister to determine if Djokovic has a 'well-known stance on vaccination'. They say Mr Hawke's ruling was made based on comments the 20-time Grand Slam winner made in 2020 and that there was no attempt by the government to seek his current views on Covid vaccinations. Top Silk Nicholas Wood SC will also make the case that the government has 'cited no evidence' that Djokovic will rile up the...

    Normal people don’t pay much attention to the United States Supreme Court. I don’t know why. Here’s nine people who tell us what the law is. They tell us what the law is even if their reasoning for it is trash. Such is the case with the court’s latest ruling. The six Republican justices could have said to themselves, “Gee, the pandemic is bad. It’s killing a lot of people. Maybe we shouldn’t second guess the people who know what they’re talking about when it comes to public health.” Nah. The court instead decided to second guess the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The White House had tried to implement the president’s vaccine-or-test mandate via OSHA’s statutory authority to regulate workplace safety. The mandate would have affected employers with over 100 workers, or about 100 million people.

    General Electric has become became the latest company to permanently suspend its COVID-19 vaccine and testing requirement after the Supreme Court blocked President Joe Biden's mandate.  The company has previously encouraged its 174,000 employees to get the jab, according to a spokesperson, and will continue to do so. But it suspended the rule on December 16 in the wake of a court ruling ordering a stay on the vaccine mandate for private sector works, and ditched it permanently after Thursday's Supreme Court ruling. GE had announced in October an intention to begin a vaccination mandate in an attempt to comply with the federal regulations.   President Biden urged businesses to bring in vaccine mandates on their own and pushed states to 'do the right thing' after the Supreme Court voted 6-3 Thursday to block his sweeping rules on private companies in a crushing blow to his pandemic response.    The high court did however allow a vaccine mandate for employees at health care facilities receiving federal dollars to go into effect. Twenty-seven states had petitioned the Supreme Court to issue a stay on...

Pending court action, Djokovic, 34, won’t be able to compete in the Australian Open. In a statement, Alex Hawke, Australian minister for immigration, citizenship, migrant services and multicultural affairs, said he revoked the visa “on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so.” #BREAKING The Government will cancel the visa of @DjokerNole says Immigration Minister @AlexHawkeMP #AusOpen #auspol pic.twitter.com/8kMpQ4bmLy — Political Alert (@political_alert) January 14, 2022 In a statement, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison concurred with Hawke’s decision and noted the ordeal Australia has been through with the country’s strict Covid protocols that has included lockdowns. “This pandemic has been incredibly difficult for every Australian but we have stuck together and saved lives and livelihoods,” he said. “Australians have made many sacrifices during this pandemic, and they rightly expect the result of those sacrifices to be protected,” added Morrison.

Fan favourite Masvidal accused Covington of not paying one of his coaches for training him for his interim welterweight title fight with Rafael dos Anjos in June 2018. The war of words ahead of the pair's long-awaited showdown will no doubt provide fireworks ahead of their T-Mobile Arena tussle. And the fact they know one another so intimately inside and outside of the cage makes for a fascinating match-up. So with that,...
    Published: 14/01/2022 – 01:29 The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a petition filed by President Biden seeking action by employees of large companies to vaccinate against Covit-19 or to carry out routine tests. The judges considered the move inappropriate in the lives of many Americans. With our correspondent in Miami, David Thompson The White House wanted to impose the vaccine on 84 million employees at the company, which has more than 100 employees. You will not be able to work until you carry out the Govt test every week at your own expense. In the land of individual freedom, The move was announced in September Joe Biden was immediately denounced by elected Republicans as a tyrant and fought in court. The Supreme Court took the matter as a matter of urgency and only three of its nine members, the Progressive Judges, voted in favor, with six of its six Conservative judges blocking the decision. This duty encourages the Supreme Court of the United States in its judgment, “ Not the daily activity of the federal power, but...

    NOVAK Djokovic could still play in the Australian Open, even if his visa is cancelled today. The Serbian tennis ace and currently the world’s number one, 34, faces having his visa cancelled today by Australia’s Immigration Minister Alex Hawke. 4Novak Djokovic could still play in the Australian Open while any potential appeal over his visa went through the courtsCredit: AFP 4Australia’s Immigration Minister Alex Hawke is expected to make a decision about Djokovic's visa on FridayCredit: AP As it currently stands, no decision has been made and government sources have accused Djokovic’s team of “stalling” by submitting piles of extra paperwork recently. Djokovic is the first seed in the tournament which starts on Monday but doubts remain that he will even be able to take part. The anti-vaxxer’s visa has already been cancelled once and later a court re-instated it on Monday in a protracted saga. Mr Hawke is now expected to announce his decision on Friday. If the decision is made to cancel Djokovic’s visa, his representatives have already said they would launch an immediate appeal in court against...
    In a new ruling on Thursday, the six conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration from implementing a sweeping requirement for vaccines under the Occupation Safety and Health Administration. Using OSHA's power to regulate employers, the administration sought to require any company with 100 workers or more to ensure that employees are either vaccinated against COVID-19 or are tested weekly for the virus. Writing in a per curiam decision, the court's six-justice conservative majority used twisted logic to overrule the administration's decision. The three liberal justices wrote a joint dissent, arguing that the court's decision overstepped its own authority. (In a separate case decided at the same time, conservative Justices Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts joined the liberals to uphold the administration's mandate requiring vaccination for health care workers at facilities receiving funds from Medicaid and Medicare.) To justify its opposition to the OSHA vaccination rule, the majority argued that the administration exceeded the authority delegated by Congress. But to come to the conclusion, it had to use a rather bizarre and seemingly contradictory line of...
    A new poll revealed the challenges facing the Biden administration on Thursday, showing that only 31 percent of Americans see Dr. Anthony Fauci as a trustworthy source of COVID-19 information and just 45 percent approve of President Joe Biden's pandemic response. Biden has seen public support plunge during the past year as successive waves of COVID variants have upended his campaign promise to beat the virus. On Thursday he delivered an update on his response, but the NewsNation poll, conducted by Decision Desk HQ, reveals a country that distrusts him and his senior advisers.  When asked who they trusted to provide information about COVID-19 only 30.8 percent said Fauci, Biden's chief medical adviser, and 15.5 percent said Biden himself. Instead, almost two thirds said they trusted their doctor for advice, and almost half said they trusted federal health authorities such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Only the news media fared worse than Biden and his top adviser, with barely 10 percent saying they trusted journalists. Dr Anthony Fauci's COVIC-19 advice is trusted by less than a third...

    Novak Djokovic has successfully challenged the Australian Government’s decision to cancel his visa and will play in the Australian Open. The 34-year-old world tennis No.1 will be free to leave the Park Hotel in Carlton - a ‘human zoo’ where he’s spent the last four nights alongside refugees and detainees - by 7pm. Judge Anthony Kelly’s decision is a huge blow to the government, who hoped he’d be deported this afternoon after claiming he relied on out-of-date ATAGI advice to enter the country.  Djokovic supporters had high hopes for the case after Judge Kelly said he was 'agitated' learning all the steps the world No.1 took to assure he'd be welcome in Australia and free to play his favourite Grand Slam.  'A professor and qualified physician provided the applicant a medical exemption, the basis of which was given by an independent expert panel established by the state government... that document was in the hands of the delegate,' Judge Kelly said. 'The point I'm somewhat agitated about is, what more could this man have done?'   Novak Djokovic has successfully challenged the Australian...
    Novak Djokovic spent Orthodox Christmas alone 'locked in a small room' and is upset that a priest wasn't able to visit him while in detention, a new supporter said. Svjetlana Kovacevic, from the Australian Serbian Commerce Chamber, has been fighting for the tennis star in the media after he was locked up on arrival in Australia after he refused to be vaccinated to Covid.  'For him to be stuck in a detention centre in a small room by himself on Serbian orthodox Christmas Day, not allowed to have a priest visit him when he normally goes to church, that's a bit upsetting for him,' Ms Kovacevic told the Today Show on Monday.  Svjetlana Kovacevic, (pictured) from the Australian Serbian Commerce Chamber, told hosts on the Today Show the tennis champion was 'a bit down but feeling ok' The hosts questioned if there was any validity to claims the star was being served food infested with maggots or if there were fleas in his bed. Ms Kovacevic did not confirm the reports but said the athlete's movements were limited.  'I can...
    Novak Djokovic's final attempt to overturn his visa cancellation and stay in Melbourne to compete in the Australian Open has been delayed after an expired link to broadcast the hearing was hijacked with pornographic pictures.       The tennis champion has been detained in a Melbourne hotel used to house refugees since his unsuccessful bid to enter Australia last Wednesday, where he was denied entry on the basis he was unvaccinated and did not have a valid exemption.  On Monday morning, Federal Court Judge Anthony Kelly held off on proceedings after technical disruptions prohibited any parties from tuning in. The appeal is being held remotely via an audio visual link. Djokovic is not expected to tune in for the hearing and remains in the Park Hotel where he's spent the last five days.   The court initially issued a Microsoft teams link to livestream, but later updated the advice with a new website to watch proceedings. Minutes before the case was set to begin, the initial link was overrun by members of the Serbian public and foreign press and at one...
    Novak Djokovic's court battle to stay in Australia so he can play in the Australian Open could cost taxpayers half a million dollars in legal fees. The World No. 1 will fight deportation back to Serbia at the Federal Circuit Court on Monday after his visa was cancelled on Thursday. Djokovic has been detained in a Melbourne hotel used to house refugees since his unsuccessful bid to enter Australia last Wednesday, where he was denied entry on the basis he was unvaccinated and did not have a valid exemption.  Justin Quill, a partner at Thomson Geer Lawyers, believes Djokovic will not only win his case but that it will come at a great cost to Australian taxpayers.  Novak Djokovic's (pictured, with wife Jelena) court battle to stay in Australia so he can play in the Australian Open could cost taxpayers half a million dollars in legal fees Djokovic has been detained in a Melbourne hotel used to house refugees since his unsuccessful bid to enter Australia last Wednesday, where he was denied entry on the basis he was unvaccinated and...
    Novak Djokovic will plead his case in front of a judge today in a last-ditch attempt to stay in Melbourne and contest his 10th Australian Open Title. Lawyers for the Minister of Home Affairs filed their submissions at 10.30pm on Sunday - less than 12 hours before the case will be heard in the Federal Court. The government maintains the decision to tear up Djokovic's visa was correct on the basis he failed to justify his purported medical exemption. Even if Djokovic is successful in his visa battle, lawyers for the government say they could cancel his visa again, leaving him in perpetual limbo just a week before the Open begins. Their submission claims Djokovic is of a 'greater health risk' of spreading the virus than an vaccinated person, and that infecting others would 'burden the health system'.  Novak Djokovic (pictured with Tennis Australia boss Craig Tiley in 2021) is set to learn his fate after a whirlwind trip to try and defend his Australian Open title - which would make him the most successful men's player of all time...
    Sir Isaac Newton coined the phrase that became his third law: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. But this isn’t just true for science—it’s painfully true for politics, too. Canadian author Stephen Marche, whose new book The Next Civil War: Dispatches from the American Future chronicles what he saw while reporting on the far right in Ohio aka Oathkeepers’ Country, came on this bonus episode of The New Abnormal to talk with host Molly Jong-Fast. “Things feed into each other,” he explains. “Inequality feeds into bad electoral decisions, which leads to bad policies, which leads to…” Well, not great things. A prime example Marche gives is Donald Trump.
    Iszac Henig, a transgender male swimmer at Yale University, has drawn notice after victories this weekend in multiple races in which he defeated all competitors, including transgender University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas. Henig, a California native, stunned parents at the meet as the Yale swimmer easily beat out his opponents in the women's 100-yard freestyle, with a time of 49.57 seconds.  Thomas, who finished fifth, finished with a time of 52.84 seconds.  The Yale swimmer won the 50-yard free in 22.76, then coming out of the break with a 49.57 to seal the deal in the 100 free. Henig won the 50 free by 0.96 seconds, and the 100 by 1.60 seconds, both huge margins for those events.      Later, in the women's 400-yard freestyle relay, Henig again crushed Thomas and his other competitors, finishing in 50.45 seconds, giving Yale the number one spot in the competition on the strength of his leg of the race. Thomas meanwhile finished her leg of the race in 51.94 seconds.   Iszac Henig still competes on the Ivy League school's women's team after coming...
