    Unvaccinated Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers hinted his playing career may be coming to a close, and said he didn't think it 'would end like this' after stunning 13-10 loss to the 49ers Saturday.  Speaking after the shocking loss in Green Bay Saturday, Rogers said he felt. 'A little numb, for sure,' adding: 'I didn't think it was going to end like this.' Rodgers said he will take time to have conversations with 'people around here' and make a determination about his future before the start of free agency.  Following a loss in the divisional playoffs Saturday night at Lambeau Field, Rodgers' next move has never been more uncertain as he wrapped his 17th season with the Packers. 'I'm going to take some time and have conversations with the folks around here and then take some time away and make a decision - obviously before free agency,' Rodgers said Saturday postgame.  In an ESPN profile that was published Friday, Packers star Rodgers said he didn't think his career 'would end like this' after stunning 13-10 loss to the 49ers...
    Champion swimmer Michael Phelps has described the controversy that surrounds  transgender swimmer Lia Thomas is 'very complicated' - before adding that sports need a 'level playing field' to be fair.  Phelps, the most successful and most decorated Olympian of all time with a total of 28 medals, compared the issue of athletes like Thomas to doping in order to secure a competitive advantage in the pool.  Speaking to CNN, Phelps was adamant that something needed to be done about current NCAA guidelines that allow Thomas to compete against swimmers born female - but was unable to share any specific ideas.  'I think this leads back to the organizing committees again because it has to be a level playing field. That's something that we all need. Because that's what sports are. For me, I don't know where this is going to go. I don't know what's going to happen.'  Olympic champion swimmer Michael Phelps, 36, has reacted to the ongoing debate over trans college athlete Lia Thomas competing on women's swim team 'It's very complicated. We all should feel comfortable with who...
    In a representative government, the context and accuracy of history changing events is of the utmost importance to ensure that we as voting Americans truly understand what is happening around us. Tragically, over the past thirteen years, from the Obama administration, to the Trump administration, and continuing through the Biden years, it has become increasingly challenging to discern the truth from propaganda touted by our media and the political ruling class. January 6th 2021, was a horrible day in our history – a tragic, heart-breaking, insane, and yes, historically-paradigm shifting day for all of us. I would never belittle the events of the attack on the Capitol. A year ago, I was already living a mere fifteen-minute drive from Capitol Hill, and can remember driving into work and calling my then-executive producer and telling him that something felt very wrong that morning. The streets were filled with angry MAGA supporters swarming the area around the Capitol and into where I was taping out of the ABC news bureau. They were in cars, honking, yelling, waving flags and clearly trying to...
    Just before 11:30 a.m. Thursday, emergency dispatchers alerted firefighters to a grassfire reported near Marshall Road and Colorado 93 south of Boulder. The hurricane-force winds buffeting Boulder County meant it already had been a busy morning, with fire crews racing to stop two other grassfires north of the city limits. But the new fire near Marshall Road would prove to be a different beast. Powerful winds pushed the flames east and it exploded within minutes, sending a column of smoke skyward as it burned across parched grassland toward the suburban subdivisions of Superior. Tens of thousands of Boulder County residents fled that afternoon and evening as the entire town of Superior, then its neighbor across U.S. 36, the city of Louisville, were ordered to evacuate. The firestorm, accelerated by vicious winds and drought conditions, tore through Superior, jumped the turnpike and burned into Louisville. By late Thursday, the Marshall fire had burned 6,000 acres and destroyed nearly 1,000 homes and businesses to become the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history. The flames leveled a hotel in Superior and scorched the...
    This is the moment a vehicle lining up for a COVID-19 drive-thru test was overtaken by a turtle.  The video was recorded on Wednesday, December 29 at the Florida Atlantic University testing center in Boca Raton, Florida. Cory Safra, who captured the amusing footage, can be heard saying: 'You know the COVID line is moving slow when the turtle is passing you.' Corey Safra was overtaken by a turtle while he lined up for a drive-thru COVID-19 test in Boca Raton, Florida, as Omicron sweeps the nation, putting unprecedented demand on testing centers According to Mr Safra, his wait dragged on for a four hours.   A record 46,923 new COVID cases were reported in Florida on Wednesday.  The video is emblematic of a nationwide problem, as the Biden administration comes under mounting pressure to provide more testing capacity, with many people having to wait hours for a COVID test. Yesterday there were 301,472 new daily average cases reported in the US - the highest ever.  As the new Omicron variant sweeps the nation, demand on testing centers has reached record...

    President Joe Biden flew to Kansas City to highlight the bipartisan credentials of the new $1.2 trillion infrastructure law – lavishing praise on Republicans and vowing to create an 'infrastructure decade.' 'Guess what, it's going to be an infrastructure decade,' he said, mocking former President Donald Trump's repeat 'infrastructure weeks' - which often coincided with a scandal.  'No more talking, action,' the president added.  He began his speech at a transit depot by honoring the late son of Russell Kansas, Bob Dole, a Republican who spent 37 years in the Senate – a year longer than Biden. He praised Dole's 'both physical and moral courage' and called him 'among the greatest of the great generation,' calling the former Senate leader, who died Tuesday, a 'cherished friend to me and my wife, Jill.'  Dole was just one of the Republicans Biden tipped his hat to. Throughout the day, he made a point of name-checking Republicans, touting a bipartisan accomplishment as he tries to push another measure through the Senate on a party-line vote.  He greeted the state's GOP governor, Mike Parson,...
    The Texas realtor who flew to the Capitol riot on a private jet and bragged that she was 'too white and blonde' to go to prison has planned a weight loss, yoga and alcohol detox regiment for her 60 days behind bars The Texas realtor who flew to the Capitol riot on a private jet and bragged that she was 'too white and blonde' to go to prison has planned a weight loss, yoga and alcohol detox regiment for her 60 days behind bars.

    The New York Giants’ quarterback situation appeared to be more clouded after Sunday’s 20-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Daniel Jones missed the game with a neck injury and is reportedly set to miss Week 14’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Mike Glennon, who started against Miami, suffered a concussion during the game and may not be able to play against the Chargers.

    Don “Wink” Martindale did not waste his breath, trying to pretend the Ravens’ impending trip to Pittsburgh was a routine bit of NFL business. The team’s defensive coordinator cherishes the crackling atmosphere at Heinz Field so much that he told linebacker Tyus Bowser he’d play there twice a year if he could. Facing the Steelers is an elixir for Martindale’s 58-year-old bones. “The young ones will find out about it,” he said. “I told them that, ‘If you want to be known in this city, play well against Pittsburgh.’” Every game looms large for the Ravens as they enter the last six weeks of this season, clinging to the AFC’s No. 1 seed and to their perch atop the AFC North. But seasoned members of the organization say Steelers week remains a thing apart, even if the games are not as bitter as they once were. Ravens-Steelers remains one of the NFL’s most evocative rivalries, shorthand for brash, punishing football played between perennial contenders. Since the AFC North was created in 2002, the teams have combined...
    Greg Gutfeld and his co-hosts on "The Five" dropped some gun-related red pills Tuesday as crime and looting rock the country. "Black Friday? More like Glock Friday," Gutfeld quipped.  "Gun control is dead, and it was killed by the leftists and the media," he continued, explaining that the left "killed it by pushing riots as protests and pushing the defunding and the demoralization of law enforcement." "All that's left is the Second Amendment, and it's dawning on everyone like a giant red nuclear pill that…was detonated over America, that the only thing between you and anarchy is self-protection," Gutfeld said. SECOND AMENDMENT GROUPS ON BIDEN MANDATE: IF HE CAN FORCE A NEEDLE IN YOUR ARM, CAN HE TAKE YOUR GUN? "The problem with the Democrats…[is] they don't understand human nature and the incentivization of human nature," he remarked. Gutfeld described how they "have been incentivizing gun purchases by decriminalizing crime" and using no cash bail to "[put] the criminal on a pedestal while putting victims in jeopardy." In such a system, if an assault victim calls the police on his...

      The first lawsuit was recently filed over the shooting incident on the set of the infamous Alec Baldwin western “Rust” that took the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza. Law&Crime founder Dan Abrams took issue with the claims made by Serge Svetnoy, the chief lighting technician and electrician, also known as a gaffer in Hollywood nomenclature, during a Wednesday segment on Abrams’ NewsNation television program Dan Abrams Live. “This lawsuit is not about his desire to make money at all,” the gaffer’s attorney Gary Dordick said at a press conference announcing the litigation–which names several defendants involved with the movie’s production. “This lawsuit is to bring awareness to a problem and to prevent it in the future. This lawsuit is to make these kinds of unsafe conditions that happen too much on movie sets stop now.” The lawsuit alleges the following: [Svetnoy] felt a strange and terrifying whoosh of what felt like pressurized air from his right. He felt what he believed was gunpowder and other residual materials from the gun directly strike the right side of his...

Cincinnati put up 520 yards of offense in the contest, averaging 8.3 yards per play. And Cincinnati’s defense effectively contained Lamar Jackson. While he led Baltimore with 88 yards rushing, Jackson completed just 48.4 percent of his passes for 257 yards with a touchdown. It was clearly the Bengals’ best performance of the season. But according to running back Joe Mixon, there’s a better level of play Cincinnati can reach. “We haven’t had a complete game and we’re getting better each and every week,” Mixon said, via Geoff Hobson of the team’s website. “I think a perfect game is going to come. Really, at the end of the day, we’re heating up....

Wilson’s first two passes were intercepted and he threw four overall in a 22-6 loss in Week Two this season. It was one of many dominating performances by a Bill Belichick-led Patriots team against a rookie signal caller and it didn’t seem like the kind of experience that Wilson would be itching to have again. Thursday saw Wilson singing a different tune, however. Wilson said that he’s looking forward to another chance to tangle with the defense that stymied him the first time around. “Just like it was the first time we played them, everything’s a steppingstone,” Wilson said, via Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post. “We’re building something here that’s going to be special for a long time.

    (CNN)The optimistic turn in Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths could end in another spike in infections, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday. But the US could still prevent that spike with higher vaccination rates."If we don't do very well in that regard, there's always the danger that there will be enough circulating virus that you can have a stalling of the diminishing of the number of cases, and when that happens, as we've seen in the past with other waves that we've been through, there's the danger of resurgence," said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, on Fox News Sunday.Covid-19 numbers are getting better. But where they go from here will depend on vaccinations, Fauci saysAlthough cases still remain high, with an average of about 85,000 new infections a day as of Sunday, they are down by more than 8,000 from a week prior, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

    CHICAGO — Community leaders and advocates are cautiously optimistic about a new city plan to support programs preventing sex trafficking and intimate-partner violence, saying it’s the first time they’ve seen City Hall show interest in the issue. But the plan lacks specificity, and experts who have been doing this work for years wonder if the $25 million earmarked for the program is enough funding to make a difference. The plan also doesn’t offer solutions to a key problem local leaders long have overlooked: What is the city doing to find dozens of its missing Black women? Rev. Robin Hood, who runs Mothers Opposed To Violence Everywhere with his wife, Louvenia, has worked to keep the spotlight on the more than 50 cases of missing or murdered Black women that have not been solved. “I think $25 million is a good start, but it has to reach the right groups, especially the youth who are affected most,” Hood said. “I applaud [Mayor Lori Lightfoot] for opening the door to these conversations, but we need more.” Lightfoot unveiled her plan at...

    Tennessee leads the nation in new COVID-19 cases per capita, new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found.  According to data compiled by The New York Times over the last week, the state has seen an average of over 8,300 new coronavirus infections each day. Health experts believe part of the alarming number has to do with a low rate of vaccinations, particularly among children.  Fewer than one in four children ages 12 to 17 in Tennessee are vaccinated against COVID-19.  That is having devastating consequences for families. Julie McDivitt's son, Jacob Rodriguez, started feeling sick in late July. He told CBS News' Omar Villafranca he felt like he "had COVID."  "Felt really tired, headache. Couldn't taste nothing. It was awful," Rodriguez said. But his symptoms didn't raise any red flags for McDivitt. Even after a positive COVID test, she expected her athletic son to easily overcome COVID, and for a while, it looked like that was the case — until his temperature started to rise. "Day 2, fever hits, and it never let up," McDivitt said. "Fourteen days straight, he ran...

    Just days into the new school year, hundreds of D.C.-area students are in quarantine after potentially being exposed to the coronavirus. An entire sixth-grade class at Johnson Middle School in Southeast D.C. was told to quarantine, as were about 1,000 students in Montgomery County, Maryland. The potential exposures highlight the challenges lawmakers, school officials, parents and students face in trying to ensure safe in-person learning in the midst of the pandemic. The highly contagious delta variant has made the task even more difficult, experts maintain. “Having a layered plan, parents can really be able to respond,” said Keri Althoff, an associate professor of epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “There’s going to be anxiety. There’s going to be concern. It is going to be disruptive.” Most of the D.C. region is experiencing high community transmission, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but experts said the benefits of in-person learning far outweigh the risk of exposure to the coronavirus. With the school year underway, here are a few things parents can do to...

    State Surgeon General Scott Rivkees is stepping down in September.Photo via NSFFlorida needs a new state surgeon general. The question could quickly become: Will it be easy to find someone? Scott Rivkees announced he will leave his post as surgeon general and secretary of the Florida Department of Health next month. But the move comes amid a surge of COVID-19 cases and deaths. Combine that with Gov. Ron DeSantis’ antagonism to federal health authorities and mask mandates, and it might make it difficult to find a replacement. “We are in a situation right now where it’s like a trauma center for public health. We are in the middle of a major pandemic in a mega-state. I would hope we could find a very highly trained, particularly public health physician who has good credentials in infectious diseases who would take that position right away,” said James Howell, a physician who headed the Department of Health for three years in the late 1990s. “Whoever takes that position works for the governor. They would have to have a working relationship. But it’s going...
    Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos Dont Look So Sure About Their New Empty Nest Hurricane Ida sends gasoline prices jumping as it knocks refineries offline © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad The 49ers continue to resist any calls to officially name a starting quarterback for Week One of the regular season and their final preseason game of the summer showed why it may not be as consequential a decision as it would be for other clubs. Jimmy Garoppolo started the game against the Raiders, but Trey Lance rotated in during each of the series that Garoppolo played before sitting out the rest of the proceedings. It’s something that the 49ers have hinted at doing this summer and head coach Kyle Shanahan said he wanted to play both guys because it was “the last time you can have the opportunity to do it” before the regular season. Shanahan said the timing of the substitutions was “situational” rather than scripted and had the side effect of putting more things in the head...
    As Sturgis rally clears, COVID cases, hospitalizations rise 5 ways to turn your old iPad into a kid-friendly smart home gadget © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is optimistic. Despite generating an 0-3 record in the preseason with an offense that most of the time seemed downright offensive, Zimmer has high hopes for his team. “I feel like we’re going to be pretty good, but we still have to go out and prove it,” Zimmer told reporters. He nevertheless acknowledged the Friday night’s loss to the Chiefs was “sloppy,” but he noted that most of his key players still aren’t on the field. They held out plenty of key offensive and defensive players again in Kansas City. One potential starter — cornerback Bashaud Breeland — got torched for a 35-yard touchdown by Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill. Asked whether miscommunication among the safeties contributed to the play, Zimmer was characteristically blunt. “He didn’t cover the guy,” Zimmer said of Breeland. Zimmer has a well-earned reputation for speaking...
    It was 2011. Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal, and TechCrunch were anticipating rumors that Apple was planning to launch a cheaper and smaller iPhone than the iPhone 4, who would make company in the market. Interesting thing, since the iPhone 4 was smaller than the iPhone 3GS. That device never saw the lightBut that doesn’t mean the rumors were wrong. What’s more, thanks to the emails obtained from Apple’s lawsuit against Epic Games, we know that Steve Jobs’s Apple I was working on an “iPhone nano” based on the iPod Touch to replace the iPhone 3GS. “Show models (and / or renders) – Jony” In October 2010, Steve Jobs emailed the agenda for a strategy meeting. In this email, he marked the points that were going to be discussed for the following year and, among the different sections, there was one dedicated to the iPhone. The 2011 strategy consisted of an iPhone 4 “Plus” with better antennas, processor, camera and software, a version with LTE for mid-2012 and “create a low-cost iPhone model based on the iPod Touch...
    A 21-year-old British student with a 4chan account claims that he is trapped in Afghanistan and has accepted he may die there amid the Taliban takeover of the state after going to the warzone on holiday.  Miles Routledge, 21, claims he has been abandoned by the British Embassy in Kabul, which he alleges have not responded to any of his phone calls or emails as the Islamist terror group streamed into the capital.

He claims the fighters did not know where Wales was, and let him go. Mr Routledge says he later came across another armed convoy during the Taliban insurgency and took a selfie...

    The moment that Simone Biles delivered the shock news of her Olympic team final withdrawal to her devastated teammates has been caught on camera - revealing how the gymnast urged her fellow athletes to carry on in her stead, telling them to 'go and kick a**' without her.  Simone, 24, stunned spectators and competitors alike in Tokyo on Tuesday when she flubbed her vault in the opening minutes of the competition, and then announced her withdrawal just moments later - having been expected to lead Team USA to its third consecutive gold medal win.  Footage from inside the arena shows the defending all-around champion delivering the news to her fellow gymnasts, Jordan Chiles, 20, Sunisa Lee, 18, and Grace McCallum, 18 - who were left reeling by the news, not least because they were then forced to step up and fill her shoes in the remaining three events.   Following her shock error on vault - during which she bailed on a skill mid-way through and only completed one-and-a-half twists instead of the two-and-a-half she was supposed to execute - Simone...
    Joe Biden overinflated that efficiency of vaccines, especially against the Delta variant, during his gaffe-filled town hall on Wednesday where he claimed the jab will prevent Americans from contracting coronavirus.  'We're not in the position where we think that any virus, including the Delta virus, which is much more transmissible and more deadly in terms of unvaccinated people, the – the various shots that people are getting now cover that,' Biden said during a CNN town hall in Cincinnati, Ohio on Wednesday. 'You're OK,' he assured. 'You're not going to – you're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.' This statement is false considering many vaccinated Americans have contracted coronavirus, as well as been hospitalized and fallen fatal to the disease. 'If you're vaccinated, you're not going to be hospitalized, you're not going to be in the IC unit, and you're not going to die,' the president told host Don Lemon on stage at Mount St. Joseph University. 'So it's gigantically important that ... we all act like Americans who care about our fellow Americans,' he added....
