    IT'S becoming more and more common for the bride and groom-to-be to ask guests not to bring their children to their wedding day. Obviously, it's up to them who is invited to the wedding, but the way it is phrased can cause division among wedding guests. 2The mum has been invited to two child-free weddings, but the way one of the couples asked left her irritatedCredit: Getty But one mum who received a wedding invitation was left irritated by the way the couple asked people not to bring their children. The mum posted anonymously to mumsnet and asked users whether she was unreasonable to be annoyed by the request. She wrote: "We have been invited to two child-free weddings, both in June. We are going to attend both and are pulling in favours for childcare. "However, I can’t pretend that I’m not mildly irritated by the wording in one of the invites!" The mum saw no problem with the second wedding invitations wording, which said; "Whilst we love your children please note this is an adult-only occasion." But she...
    BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4)– Dimitry Stanley was CU’s leading receiver in 2020. But in 2021, CU’s historically bad offense left talented players like Stanley frustrated and in dire need of better opportunities. (credit: CBS) “I just felt that entering the transfer portal was going to give me the best opportunity. I felt that I wasn’t really being utilized enough at CU,” Stanley said. “I just wanted to step away and find the best opportunity where I can flourish.” With two years of eligibility remaining and dreams of making it to the NFL, Stanley wants the chance to properly showcase his talents. “I’m just looking for somewhere that can get me the ball. I’m looking for somewhere that can get me 70 or 80 touches. I feel like if I get that, I’ll be able to reach all my goals and be able to show NFL scouts what I can do,” Stanley said. Since the 2021 season came to an end, CU players have been leaving at an alarming rate. Stanley is one of seven starters that have entered the transfer portal....
    Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) is redefining the Northam-era Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion away from “equity,” championing “viewpoint diversity,” and tasking the director with being an “ambassador for the unborn.” Youngkin issued Executive Order Number 10, imagining a different office — giving the director the title of Commonwealth Chief Diversity, Opportunity, and Inclusion Officer — and focusing on need-based criteria for the office, as opposed to the mostly race-based focus of the Northam administration. The goals of the office are laid out essentially in four pillars: entrepreneurship and economic opportunity, “diverse free speech and inclusive civil discourse,” teaching “honest, objective, and complete” history as opposed to critical race theory, and the involvement of faith-based organizations in community development. Youngkin has reclaimed words like “diversity” and “inclusion” to include differing viewpoints and religious beliefs, rather than the left’s mostly race-based definition that came with the foundation of the office. Indeed, as the Richmond Times-Dispatch lamented, “The executive order doesn’t mention race or any specific racial group.” Youngkin Press Secretary Macaulay Porter told Breitbart News that “restructuring” the office “carries out...
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) supports Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) getting primaried, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is forcing votes on dead-on-arrival Senate bills. Breitbart Entertainment Editor Jerome Hudson explains it all. Also, a new Rasmussen poll shows Republicans have gained a nine-point lead over Democrats in a generic congressional ballot, and two more House Democrats announced their retirements this year. Our guest today is Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) who discusses China’s Genocide Games and the opportunity the GOP has to win this year’s midterms as the left’s policies continue to fail and Democrat infighting escalates.

    In this article ABNBVIDEO2:2202:22Jim Cramer expects strong Airbnb earnings in 2022, likes the stock long-termMad Money with Jim CramerCNBC's Jim Cramer said Tuesday he believes Airbnb will be a successful long-term investment, making the stock's recent weakness a potential buying opportunity for fellow company bulls. "I think this is one of those infants that's been thrown out with the growth-stock bathwater," the "Mad Money" host said, referring to Airbnb's steep decline since mid-November as many high-growth technology stocks fell out of favor on Wall Street. "While Airbnb gets grouped with the recent IPOs because it came public 13 months ago ... this thing is actually profitable. That makes a huge difference in a market that suddenly cares about earnings at all costs," Cramer said. Still, Airbnb shares are down about 27% from their highs, Cramer acknowledged. "Maybe it goes down 30%. Hey, maybe it goes down 40%. Stage your buys, get bigger as it goes down like we do in the [CNBC Investing Club]," he said. "I think this is a fabulous long-term winner that can beat Wall Street's earnings...
    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is predicting increased enthusiasm in the midterm elections this year, as the Chinese coronavirus, he said, has made people realize that the “governor has been more consequential in your daily lives than even the President of the United States.” DeSantis, speaking on a Friday episode of the variety program Ruthless, noted that less people typically vote in the midterm elections than the presidential elections. But, he has a feeling that will shift a bit this year. “Because of COVID, people realize the governor has been more consequential in your daily lives than even the President of the United States,” he said, speaking as one governor who refused to lock down his state for months on end, much to the dismay of the left and establishment media. “And so, we have an opportunity to not just get all you all to the polls, but to get your friends and neighbors who don’t always vote in these races, and we’re going to have a tsunami of turnout in November 2022,” he predicted. “And that’s what’s really exciting...
    (CNN)If Democrats are going to preserve their Senate majority after the 2022 midterm elections, the race to replace retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey represents a crucial offensive opportunity for a party desperate for a sliver of hope.That reality has intensified the pressure on the state's Democratic primary, with a range of lawmakers, operatives and national party leaders concerned that a contentious contest between Democrats will make it less likely that voters will nominate someone positioned to recreate President Joe Biden's statewide victory in 2020. But finding which candidate best represents that mandate has proven more elusive. The primary has so far pitted a handful of Democrats with diverse backgrounds, unique geographic bases and distinct ideologies against each other, creating a contest that could also go a long way in answering several lingering questions for Democrats: How does the party break the Republican hold on rural voters? Can Democrats keep President Joe Biden's gains with suburban voters? And what can jolt Democratic voters in urban centers the way the antipathy for former President Donald Trump did years earlier?"Pennsylvania is a very...
    by Ore Koren, Indiana University The potential for violent extremism in America to erupt into full-fledged conflict across the country is a common topic of discussion nowadays. A recent FBI report highlights an increasing risk of violence against government institutions, private organizations and individuals. The possible perpetrators: primarily “lone wolves,” but potentially also militias and other organized groups such as animal activists, anti-abortionists and white supremacists. Claims that America is at the greatest risk of civil war since, well, the Civil War, recently received additional support from some experts in the field of political science. But civil wars are rare events. Before the 2020 election, I analyzed the risk of a so-called “Second American Civil War” that some speculated might ignite on or around Election Day. I concluded the risk was very low, while also emphasizing the uncertainty of the times. Despite the ugly Capitol riot of Jan. 6, 2021, and anti-racism protests of the past few years, some of which included rioting, violent confrontation, and property destruction, my analysis has held, and I remain unconvinced that...
    While Harris is correct in stating that the Constitution does not explicitly provide the minority party "the right to unilaterally block legislation," neither does the Constitution explicitly permit the majority party total control over the lawmaking process. In fact, the spirit behind a bicameral legislative body, in which one chamber is composed of proportional representation (House) and another is composed of equal representation (Senate), is to create a balance of power by distributing power.What did Manchin say?Speaking with reporters on Tuesday, Manchin reiterated support for the filibuster, yet another indication that he refuses to buckle under pressure from his Democratic colleagues. "We need some good rules changes to make the place work better. But getting rid of the filibuster doesn’t make it work better," Manchin said. "The filibuster is what makes the Senate hopefully work when it's suppose to work."

    Donald Trump may have canceled his press conference to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the January 6 insurrection that he incited on the Capitol, but he still has managed to communicate his desire for the event to be lauded as a glorious revolution. He wants to whitewash an act of domestic terrorism in the name of fascism, making life extremely hard for Republican politicians who wish to remain on the fence over the question. One year out, Republican leaders continue to hedge their bets. They are attempting to both appeal to the Trump base by pretending to believe there are "questions" about the validity of the 2020 election and also to appeal to swing voters and moderates by publicly denouncing the violence of the insurrection fueled by such "questions." But playing in the gray zone may not be an option for Republicans much longer —if Ted Cruz's very bad, no good week was any indication. Cruz's woes started on Wednesday when he, correctly, called the Capitol riot "a violent terrorist attack" and lauded the Capitol police for their courage...
    MTV The Challenge Double Agents final Competitors on “The Challenge” are from all types of backgrounds and, in recent years, come from many different reality shows. In the past few seasons, one of the newcomers has made it no secret that he used to play football at a high level. “Big Brother” star and two-time finalist Fessy Shafaat has opened up about his college football career for the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga. However, he recently spoke about his missed chance at competing in the NFL and said he was “still salty” at not being picked by any of the teams. He made the comments in a special CBS video that “The Challenge” account shared on its social media. “It’s game day and @fessyfitness is ready to watch the Giants take on the Bears! Don’t miss the action today on @NFLonCBS and @CBSSports!

    Jackie Crawford was six months pregnant when she won the breakaway roping title at the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association National Finals in December 2020. Calf ropers in the sport generally tuck in their shirts to reveal their prize belt buckles, but when Crawford rode, she let her shirt hang loose over her belly for comfort. In an interview with Wrangler, the event’s sponsor, after her victory, Crawford mentioned the unborn baby girl she had already named Journey. “This is one amazing journey that I’m getting to be on, and little Journey getting to be on it too,” she said. “She was giving me some kicks today, so she was excited.” Two months after giving birth in March this year, Crawford, 39, went back out on the road for a full season of rodeo competitions with baby Journey and her 4-year-old son, Creed, in tow. Her husband, retired roper Charly Crawford, stayed at home in Stephenville, Texas, with daughter Kaydence. Rodeo athletes typically spend the summer racking up prize money at local events to qualify for the National Finals Rodeo at...

    ANY signing Arsenal might consider in January needs to be tempered with the reality check of the club's self-sustaining model. That being said, are any of the new signings from the summer any moreexciting or rewarding than seeing your own homegrown talents flourishing in the famous red and white? 5Arsenal legend Mertesacker has been credited for transforming the Gunners academy into a haven of young starsCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd The answer, for me at least, is a firm no, because nothing warms the heart of a true fan more than seeing one’s own youth product become integral to the first team. It is a joy that Arsenal fans were long denied in the Wenger era with only really Ashely Cole and Jack Wilshere truly breaking through. Not since the 1980s, when we saw Tony Adams, David Rocastle, Michael Thomas and Paul Merson form the backbone of George Graham’s title winning teams, have we been able to truly cheer our own week in week out, until now. Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe are among the first...
    Author of "The Madness of the Crowds" Douglas Murray, slammed left-wing teachers for indoctrinating students in the classroom on "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday after a Michigan school district encouraged parents to attend a Black Lives Matter protest as an "equity" challenge. Murray told host Carley Shimkus some teachers are "failing" at their jobs and this progressive rhetoric goes against the American dream.  MI SCHOOL DISTRICT SUGGESTS JOINING BLM PROTESTS, WARNS CALLING US ‘LAND OF OPPORTUNITY’ IS ‘MICROAGGRESSION’  DOUGLAS MURRAY: [Schoolchildren] are just going to have all of the potential that they have in life squeezed out of them because their school days will have been indoctrination days instead of giving them an opportunity to get up the ladder. They will have just been held back. And what's more, they've been told there's a reason that you've been held back. It's because of racism. It's because of all sorts of evil in America... In other words, they'll be told in advance, there's a reason why you're not going to achieve things in your life, and it's because this country is rigged...
    A public school district in Michigan has encouraged its staff to participate in a 21 day 'Equity Challenge', exploring themes such as Identity and Intersectionality, Race and Class Privilege, Implicit Bias and Microaggressions. The voluntary course began on November 1, with 21 days of different topics - based on the theory that it takes 21 days to form a habit. They were provided with worksheets and reading materials, and encouraged to participate in discussion groups. Among the articles was a 2017 feature that pointed out African-American children in Michigan fare worse in education than in any other state. Staff are encouraged, as part of the 21 Day Equity Challenge, to participate in BLM protests Harrison High School, part of the Farmington Public School District.

    TOMMY FURY has been warned he may NEVER again get the chance to fight Jake Paul - missing out on the payday of a lifetime. The former reality TV star was all set to put unbeaten records and reputations on the line against YouTube sensation Paul. 4Jake Paul was set to fight Tommy FuryCredit: Matt May/SHOWTIME 4Tommy Fury pulled out of fighting Jake Paul because of injury - and been told he may not get the opportunity againCredit: Getty But Fury, 22, was left devastated after pulling out of the December 18 grudge match with Paul, 24, having suffering a broken rib and chest infection.

    Getty Aaron Nesmith of the Boston Celtics It’s clear that whatever the Boston Celtics are currently doing isn’t working. The team now sits 10th in the Eastern Conference and is amidst a three-game losing streak. Sure, we can point to Jaylen Brown’s lack of health to start the season and the fact the team is still coming to grips with Ime Udoka’s offensive and defensive system. But we’re currently a quarter of the way through the 2021-22 NBA season, and things don’t project to get much better for the Celtics any time soon. One of the more consistent contention points among the fan base has been the lack of playing time afforded to the Celtics younger contingent. Aaron Nesmith is a movement shooter who has shown flashes of potential when given a consistent opportunity, while Payton Pritchard was one of the surprise packages of the 2020-21 season. Yet, neither sophomore has had their fair crack at the rotation thus far. Romeo Langford is the one player from the team’s young unit that has been provided with some opportunity...
    Justin Fields’ return from three cracked ribs comes as the Chicago Bears organization seeks not just glimpses of hope for the future but consistent signs the rookie quarterback is the player to rebuild around. Provided Fields remains healthy for the next five weeks, he is in position to start 13 games as a rookie, which would be one more than Mitch Trubisky had in 2017. In many ways, the start of 2022 could mirror the start of 2018 for the Bears, especially if the team launches into a coaching search with the goal of identifying the right man to develop the talent in Fields and bring out his best. Flash back to January 2018 and the prevailing storyline was that Matt Nagy and his staff would be perfect to unlock the talents of Trubisky, whom the Bears traded up to draft at No. 2 a year earlier, selecting him ahead of Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. That process never succeeded and whether Trubisky, the staff or a combination of both should be blamed, it doesn’t matter at this...
    Share this: One of the toughest parts of the pandemic for attorneys is not knowing what is going on in the court they practice in. It creates havoc, slows down the process, and causes problems for their clients, who can often be left in the dark asking many questions. The Brooklyn Bar Association has tried to help this by hosting regular virtual sitdowns with various judges in the borough. These sitdowns give the judges an opportunity to explain the latest updates about what’s going on in their court, how processes have been changed by COVID, and how they might be changed in the future.  In recent months, members have gotten an opportunity to sit down with judges including Hon. Lawrence Knipel, Hon. Ellen Spodek, Hon. Cheryl Gonzales and Hon. Reginald Boddie among others. On Thursday it was Justice Jeffrey Sunshine’s turn as he spoke with approximately 85 Brooklyn Bar Association members on Thursday afternoon.
    December 2021 – It’s safe to say that Aiden Pleterski is not your average 22-year old. He had an early start in the crypto market, and he is quickly becoming one of the most influential and well-respected traders in the game today. Aiden was born in Whitby, Ontario (Canada), and he has been diving deep into the cryptocurrency world ever since 2015. As an avid gamer, he became acquainted with crypto early on, and it didn’t take long for him to become familiar and knowledgeable about the dynamics and know-hows of trading online. Initially, cryptocurrencies were a way for him to pay for in-game items more effortly, but later it became a broader interest for him, since crypto became a huge part of his actual life, and not just something that he’d use for in-game purchases or perks! Aiden’s passion for crypto quickly turned into an ability to seize a massive investment opportunity when he focused on Bitcoin early in the game. After purchasing some of the currency at a time when its value was relatively low, Aiden managed to...
    There was a time when Democrats called their party “the Party of Freedom.” Largely because of the horrors of the Republican Great Depression, Americans realized that, as President Franklin D. Roosevelt said in his 1944 State of the Union address, “Necessitous men are not free men.” You can’t disentangle economics from liberty. Which is why Democrats have proclaimed since the 1930s that: If you’re hungry and don’t have access to food, you’re not free. If you can’t afford decent housing and therefore don’t have a safe place to live, you’re not free. If you’re out of work and can’t support yourself or your family, you’re not free. If you’re sick and can’t afford medical treatment, you’re not free. If you live in fear of right-wing terrorism because of your religion or the color of your skin, you’re not free. And if you have the inherent capability to be a scientist or union electrician but can’t afford college or trade school to reach your potential, you’re not free. Instead, as FDR said in the next...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – CBS4’s Jim Berry sat down for an interview with Miami Dolphins legend Nat Moore to talk about this year’s final four.

A chance to meet these young men that are launching their careers. You look at this as their senior year, what they do today matters.

    Former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has just done a complete turn-around and is now refusing to co-operate with the bipartisan House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack. “We now must decline the opportunity to appear voluntarily for a deposition,” Meadows said through his attorney in a letter to the Committee Tuesday, according to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins. Meadows is now claiming he’s covered by executive privilege, which is legally questionable at best, and most legal experts say neither he nor his former boss, Donald Trump, are, since privilege is controlled by only the sitting, not former president. “We agreed to provide thousands of pages of responsive documents and Mr. Meadows was willing to appear voluntarily, not under compulsion of the Select Committee’s subpoena to him, for a deposition to answer questions about non-privileged matters,” the letter from Meadows’ attorney, George J. Terwilliger II says, according to a CNN article. “Now actions by the Select Committee have made such an appearance untenable.” READ: A writer who predicted Trump's...
    (CNN)Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California announced Monday he'll leave the House in the coming weeks, in order to follow an undisclosed "new opportunity to fight for the most important issues I believe in." "I'm writing to let you know I've decided to pursue this opportunity, and therefore I will be leaving the House of Representatives at the end of 2021," Nunes said in a letter to his constituents. This story is breaking and will be updated.
    Justin Fields’ performance in the stretch run of the season will set the tone in terms of what the Chicago Bears roster looks like going forward. Complicating that is the ribs injury he suffered Nov. 21 during the aggravating 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Fields missed the Thanksgiving Day victory in Detroit and Andy Dalton is set to start again Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals at Soldier Field. If you are compiling a list of young players not named Fields in position to offer hope for the future, start with outside linebacker Trevis Gipson. The 2020 fifth-round pick hasn’t gotten the attention given to wide receiver Darnell Mooney, tight end Cole Kmet, cornerback Jaylon Johnson, offensive tackles Larry Borom and Teven Jenkins or even running back Khalil Herbert, but Gipson is a player the Bears need to take a large step forward in the final six games. The others, of course, have carved out niches for themselves or are working to do that. Gipson has flashed on occasion, and with 17 games of experience entering...
    The 49ers have an incredible opportunity in front of them this weekend in Seattle. I’m not talking about the potential to move to a 7-5 record, which would nearly guarantee a playoff berth for the Niners. No, as cool as that would be for San Francisco, there’s plenty of time left in the season to complete that goal. In the meantime, something larger is in play” They can put a stake in the heart of their arch-rivals. If San Francisco wins Sunday in Seattle, they’ll set the Seahawks into a tailspin that could take years to undo. How often can you not just defeat, but vanquish, a mortal enemy? It’s rarely, if ever, possible. Once-in-a-generation, at best. Take advantage when you can.

    Throughout our state, country and world, the impacts of climate change have become more evident and alarming. Rising temperatures, drought, rising sea levels, floods and other effects foreshadow a grim outlook for future generations, along with direct health effects to children, elderly people and vulnerable members of our society. While world leaders came together last month in Glasgow to work toward the goals of the Paris Agreement and the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, Minnesota must come up with real, practical steps to tackle this crisis. We don’t have time to continue appreciating the problem or to study it without acting. Real action is critical and necessary. One often-overlooked way to combat our climate crisis is utilizing renewable energy at our wastewater facilities. Such plants treat water that’s been used in our homes, schools, restaurants, factories and businesses, before it’s returned to rivers and the land. These vital plants are key to economic activity, and help protect our waters from spreading disease, excessive nutrients and toxic substances that harm fish, wildlife and people. In the next 20 years, Minnesota...
    Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) urged Americans to grasp the significance of the historic case before the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday – one that offers the nine justices “the opportunity to reconsider a wrongly decided case that has since resulted in the death of 62 million innocent babies.” The chairman of the Senate’s Pro-Life Caucus said Tuesday afternoon that as the Court hears opening arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the justices will have the chance “to restore the Constitution and defend our most fundamental right—the right to life.” The case involves Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, which would limit abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, and poses the most significant challenge in decades to the right to abortion created by the Supreme Court in its decision in Roe v. Wade in 1973. In explaining the nature of the case, Daines asserted: It’s very important that we are clear about what overturning Roe would mean for our country. Overturning Roe will not, will not, ban abortion nationwide, as many on the Left like to claim in an attempt to mislead Americans. Instead, it would return the power to state and federal lawmakers, allowing them to...
    (The Conversation)In the Wasatch Mountains of the western US on the slopes above a spring-fed lake, there dwells a single giant organism that provides an entire ecosystem on which plants and animals have relied for thousands of years. Found in my home state of Utah, "Pando" is a 106-acre stand of quaking aspen clones.Although it looks like a woodland of individual trees with striking white bark and small leaves that flutter in the slightest breeze, Pando (Latin for "I spread") is actually 47,000 genetically identical stems that arise from an interconnected root network.

    Two teenage girls have been caught on CCTV doing handstands at a level crossing as Network Rail warned the railway is 'not a photo opportunity'. The incident happened in Broxtowe, Nottinghamshire, on a stretch of track used by trains travelling at up to 80mph. Police said the girls showed a 'blatant disregard for their own safety and others'. Several people were also filmed standing on the track to take photographs, with one person lying down to pose.

    Miami Dolphins is a company based in the NFL. They have won the Super Bowl twice, including in 1972, where they were defeated all season. Only the Miami team has set this record. But the Dolphins are also a sleeping legend: no finals since 1985.

    Jim CramerScott Mlyn | CNBC Friday's sharp decline for stocks, spurred by concerns over a new Covid-19 variant, is not a buying opportunity, according to CNBC's Jim Cramer. "We're going to wake up next week and find one [case] in this country, and I'm not going to recommend anyone buy anything today until we're sure that isn't going to happen. And I can't be sure that it won't," he said Friday on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street." "No panic. Let others panic. We'll profit Monday," he added. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 800 points at the opening bell, for a loss of 2%. The S&P 500 declined about 1.3%. The sell-off followed the World Health Organization warning on Thursday about a new variant that's been detected in South Africa. Cramer said that it makes sense for names like Regeneron and Pfizer to move higher, but that other areas of the market should be avoided. "I'm reluctant to say this is the time to go buy a retailer, or go buy a cruise ship company because there will be people...

The S&P 500 may have barely moved over the past week, but Oppenheimer's head of technical analysis, Ari Wald, said this is part of a familiar pattern for markets that could set the stage for a more energetic end to the year. "Over the last 30 years, there has been a tendency for the market to pause in mid-November ahead of a resumption of strength in December into year-end," Wald told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Monday.Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwardsWald said this consolidation is a "simple reminder" that bull markets do not always move in a straight line and that sideways action can be a normal and needed process.

    Q: Last night, we once again lost out to homebuyers in a multiple-offer situation. What is infuriating is that we were not allowed an opportunity to better our purchase offer after its presentation. In each case, our buyer’s agent presents our purchase offer, and within hours, learns that the property is under contract with someone else. Our buyer’s agent insists that we should have received an oral or written counteroffer before the home went under contract. In other words, our buyer’s agent says we should have received a phone call or counteroffer opportunity to “change price, terms or conditions that best suit the seller’s needs.” Regardless, after presenting last night’s offer, our buyer’s agent proactively had our loan officer call the seller’s agent and leave a voicemail lauding our qualification. Another 15 minutes later, our buyer’s agent called the seller’s agent and raised our offer price $20,000 by way of voicemail. Minutes later, our buyer’s agent received a rejection of our offer. Something is amiss. Why are we not getting oral or written counteroffers as our buyer’s agent insists is...

    In this article DISVIDEO2:5302:53Trading Nation: Is there still opportunity for profits with Disney's stock?Trading NationDisney shares plummeted Thursday, falling 7% in their worst session since June 2020, after the media giant reported a subscriber growth slowdown in its streaming service. The stock was the worst performer in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Its losses pulled it into a bear market, having fallen 20% from a March peak. But traders are split on whether this latest sell-off spells opportunity or not. Fairlead Strategies founder Katie Stockton, for example, says Thursday's drop looks like a "shakeout." She also sees it as a chance to buy at a discount. "A shakeout is essentially a false breakdown and this is actually kind of an exciting move for me to see from Disney because it's been such a laggard since March," Stockton told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Thursday. "Into this gap down we have obviously emotionally-charged selling, it could be a selling climax of sorts especially with the volume running heavy."Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwards"There is support on the chart between about $153 and $155...
    AUSTIN, Texas – Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) is a fighter. Whether it’s surviving a near-fatal accident that left him paralyzed or leading his state through the coronavirus pandemic, Abbott isn’t afraid of adversity, and he has faced plenty of it from the “Brandon” administration. In spite of President Joe Biden’s open-border policies, anti-drilling agenda, and vaccine authoritarianism, Abbott told Breitbart News that Texas is and remains America’s “Opportunity State.” On a windy afternoon in mid-October at the University of Texas’s football stadium, Abbott – the 48th and current governor of Texas – sat at the fifty-yard line for a broad exclusive interview with Breitbart News’ On the Hill video series. During the interview, Abbott pitched himself as the counterbalance to President Biden’s “disastrous policies” and federal overreach — things so often seen when the Democrats hold power. It’s a role with which he is very familiar. As Texas attorney general, Abbott sued the Obama administration 27 times. Since Biden took office, Abbott has continued to push back against Democrats, including being one of the first governors to fully re-open his state for business and terminate...
    MESQUITE, Texas – Residents in Mesquite made history last week when they elected Daniel Aleman as their city’s first-ever Latino Mayor. “I’m very proud of the opportunity. I feel like it’s a door that God has opened for us. I would hope that it sends a message to our culture to let them know it’s open for all, it’s open for everyone.” Aleman, a pastor at Creek Crossing Harvest Church, who has also served on the city council for the past five and a half years, will be sworn-in on November 15 at the beginning of the council meeting.

    VIDEO2:3902:39Lloyd's CEO: We must explain the opportunity that addressing climate change posesThe Road to COP26 LONDON — Climate is the "ultimate systemic risk" and represents "the biggest single opportunity the insurance industry has ever seen," according to the CEO of the centuries-old insurance market Lloyd's. In an interview with CNBC, John Neal, who heads up the British company, attempted to paint a picture of how his sector would operate going forward. "We think of Covid as systemic risk — climate is the ultimate systemic risk, so this is our chance to show businesses, communities and even governments how we can help," Neal, who was speaking at the COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow, Scotland, said last week.    From floods and rising temperatures to cold snaps, the fallout from climate-related events already affects the insurance industry in a number of ways. The Association of British Insurers says an extreme freeze in the U.K. during 2018 led to payouts for burst pipes totaling £194 million (around $263.16 million) across a period of three months.

    MoMo Productions | Getty Images When the Covid-19 pandemic first erupted last year, Janel Abrahami quit a job she had been in for less than a year — without anything else lined up. To many, such a move may sound risky. The decision left Abrahami, who lives in the New York metro area, searching for another full-time job in the "bleakest job market in a century," she said. Still, she had no regrets. "There wasn't a single day that I woke up during that time when I thought, 'Gosh, I wish I was opening my laptop to log into that job right now,'" Abrahami said. Abrahami used the time off to transition to a new career as a self-employed career coach. Many of her clients are just like she was and "craving more life in their life," she said.More from Advisor Insight:Here's a look at other stories impacting the financial advisor business.

    DENVER (CBS4) – Hall of Fame quarterback and Denver resident Peyton Manning says the potential sale of the Denver Broncos “isn’t on his radar.” Last month CBS Sports reported that league sources indicated the new Broncos Ring of Famer was among those following the developments with the team, and that he has spoken to at least two potential suitors about a possible leadership role with new owners if the team is in fact sold.

Several prominent leaders are remaining at home instead of traveling to the Eternal City for the yearly gathering.Among those who didn't attend are Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin, two counterparts who President Joe Biden desperately hopes to personally engage as he works to prevent already-tense relationships from deteriorating further.The given reason for Xi and Putin's absences at the G20 -- and a subsequent climate summit in Scotland that starts Monday -- is the ongoing Covid pandemic.
