    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s a day after a fatal fire left at least a dozen people dead, and there is still an active scene in Philadelphia’s Fairmount neighborhood. Investigators with the DA’s office tell Eyewitness News that they believe a child may have been playing with a lighter near a Christmas tree in one of the units and the tree caught fire. These details were revealed in an application for a search warrant to go inside the unit where the fire began. For now, the investigation is being led by the fire marshal’s office but includes support from multiple local and federal agencies.

    On Wednesday, Anderson Cooper spoke with former longtime Fox News correspondent Carl Cameron about the House committee on Jan. 6 seeking Sean Hannity’s cooperation with its investigation. The committee sent a letter to Hannity on Tuesday seeking his voluntary cooperation. In the letter were several text messages from Hannity to Trump chief-of-staff Mark Meadows and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) before, during, and after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. The texts show that Hannity was concerned in the days leading up to that date, as well as then-President Donald Trump’s state of mind around that time. Cooper noted that Hannity had still not publicly acknowledged the committee’s request, before introducing Cameron, who worked at Fox News for more than 20 years before leaving in 2017. “Does it surprise you that the public has heard from neither Sean Hannity nor the Fox News Channel since those text messages were released by the committee last night?” Cooper asked. “I suspect that there’s been an awful lot of closed-door conferences about how to deal with it,” replied Cameron. “And I suspect that a lot of Fox News watchers...

Tall, two footed and with a touch of class, when he was holding his own in the Vasco da Gama first team at the age of 17 he gained the nickname ‘Talles Magico’ - Magic Talles. 3Talles Magno has had an up-and-down season with New York CityCredit: Getty 3Despite being a bit-part player, Brazil wonderkid Talles Magno's season ended in a high with New York City winning the MLS CupCredit: Zuma Press He is still a teenager - he turns 20 in June. But he was hardly a sensation in his first year in the United States. He now plays for New York City, and the year had a happy ending. The team won its first MLS Cup, beating Portland Timbers on a shoot out after the game had finished 1-1. Talles Magno played his part. He scored his penalty.  But when he made the move north he expected to be much more than an extra time substitute. Back home for Christmas, he gave an interview to the Brazilian press...

    Getty Marcus Mariota with Derek Carr. The Las Vegas Raiders have lost five of their last six games with Derek Carr starting at quarterback. The losses aren’t all on him but in times of struggles, the most popular player on a football team will always be the backup quarterback. It doesn’t help that the Raiders have a dynamic backup quarterback in Marcus Mariota. With the season in free fall, fans would at least like to see the former Heisman Trophy winner get a few chances to make plays. However, that’s not going to happen. The Raiders certainly aren’t going to bench Carr and it sounds like the team is apprehensive to even use Mariota in packages. Interim head coach Rich Bisaccia essentially ended any chatter regarding the team making a change at quarterback. “Again, there’s been conversation all the time about what’s the plan for Marcus and when he comes in and what exactly he can do with it,” Bisaccia said Monday. “I don’t think we’re real excited about taking No. 4 [Carr] out from behind the center...
    What else? Reporters from WAGA, however, were able to provide some more information after speaking with the victim's family and neighbors who reportedly witnessed the incident. The victim's mother, Kendall Munson, told the outlet that the incident happened as a result of an argument between the two boys. She noted that she had moved with her children out of Chicago at her parents' request. She was trying to flee violence in the Windy City but it ultimately followed her family to Georgia. Munson added that her other son, who is just 12 years old, witnessed the shooting. "He witnessed it and he just kept saying, ‘They left my brother lying there.’ This is crazy," Munson said. In response to the announcement of charges on Friday, Munson, overcome with grief, expressed mixed feelings. "I honestly don't know how to feel. That baby is 12. My baby is 11.

    Getty Harrison Phillips warms up before a game against the Houston Texans. Harrison Phillips has been the highest-rated member of the Buffalo Bills defensive line this season — and doing it all while nursing a significant injury. The team revealed on Monday that Phillips tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during the preseason, and since then has been playing his way back to full health.

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said his toe injury is a fracture and added that he doesn’t expect the situation to cause him to miss any games. Rodgers has been playing with the toe injury the last two games after missing a 13-7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs because of a positive COVID-19 test. The reigning MVP said the injury occurred while working out at home during his quarantine. “I’m going to deal with the pain,” Rodgers said Wednesday. “It’s all about pain management. I’m going to deal with the pain as this goes on, and hopefully we get some healing during the weeks with limited practice reps.

    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says his toe injury is a fracture and added that he doesn’t expect the situation to cause him to miss any games. Rodgers has been playing with the toe injury each of the past two games after missing a 13-7 loss at Kansas City because of a positive COVID-19 test.

    UNO has announced that you cannot stack +2 and +4 cards on top of each other and it’s got people losing their minds over it. In a tweet the game’s twitter @realUNOgame made the announcement using emergency siren emojis. 3Shocked fans learned that they have been playing Uno wrongCredit: Getty 3A firm family favourite, Uno's announcement got twitter in a stormCredit: Getty It read: "Per management: You cannot STACK a +2 on a +2. “If someone puts down a +4 card, you must draw 4 and your turn is skipped. "You can’t put down a +2 to make the next person Draw 6. We know you’ve tried it. #UNO” This means that the stacking of 'pick up' cards is illegal. If a +4 is played the next player must collect four cards and skip their turn. If a +2 is played it's a two card pick up and a skipped turn. The tweet urged shocked Uno fans to “go ahead, roast us.” And after its huge cult following, Uno’s fans who have been playing Uno with friends and family,...
    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Gabe Kapler repeatedly blew bubbles with his gum and popped them during his postseason managerial debut against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and oh does Dave Roberts remember his division counterpart doing that during their playing days in Double-A. Kapler absolutely gets butterflies, he says, and he considers it a good thing. He’s found a way to channel those into winning in San Francisco — a lot of winning — by making so many right moves all year long. Now, the season comes down to a winner-take-all Game 5 for his Giants in the NL Division Series on Thursday night against Roberts and his defending World Series champion Dodgers. The postseason-tested, experienced manager in Roberts faces off against the newcomer Kapler, with all of his innovative approaches and a huge supporting cast of coaches. Adrenalin, nerves, anxiety, call it what you want. Kapler embraces it all. He even talks them through with his son, Dane, who called recently before a football game and told his father about feeling those same emotions. It used to be Kapler...
    A RAID on England ace Reece James’ home may have been an inside job, it is feared. Sources close to the Chelsea star say the burglary, which saw his medal haul in a large safe stolen, is thought to have been done by people who know him personally. 2Burglars knew where Reece James' medals were hiddenCredit: Getty Reece, 21, claimed on Thursday he already “had firm leads” on the burglars’ identities. Sources say the gang of five masked and hooded raiders “knew exactly where they were and what they were looking for” as they were in and out quickly. They also pointed out the getaway car had been parked in a CCTV blind spot. Reece was playing for Chelsea against Russia’s Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League on Tuesday when they struck. The claims came as it was revealed the defender had fought neighbours to beef up his security months earlier at his £2.5million Surrey mansion. He faced opposition to put in tough new steel gates and 6ft fences, before permission was granted in March. Most read in The...

    Beanie Feldstein has opened up about playing Monica Lewinsky and portraying her affair with Bill Clinton in FX's Impeachment: American Crime Story, saying that while she felt out of her 'comfort place' as a queer woman, she 'would probably do the exact same thing' in her shoes.  In a new cover story for W Magazine, the actress detailed the similarities she shares with Lewinsky, who had a sexual relationship with then-President Clinton as a 22-year-old unpaid White House intern.  News of the affair rocked the nation in the late '90s and led to the president's impeachment, turning Lewinsky into tabloid fodder for decades.  'I felt gutted by some of the things that Monica went through,' Feldstein, 28, told W.

    One of the things that killed me about my setup to work and play was the sound. The only sound output that I had to date was the speaker of the monitor itself. And I am delighted with my monitor, eye, it looks scandalous and its 144 Hz is a delight, but the sound … Well no, the sound doesn’t. That’s why whenever I use the computer for anything that requires sound, see attending a conference, listening to lo-fi while working or playing anything, I have to put my headphones on. And let’s see, putting on the headphones is fine for a while, but what do you want me to say, after four hours of playing they end up tiring me. The problem (as you have already pointed out from time to time when I have published photos in which my work table is seen) is that the table was small. Too small. But now I have a fabulous 170 x 70 oak desk and everything you want to put will fit here. Including an old LG mini system from...

    HOMEWORK can be a trial to get through with your children, but one sneaky mum decided to take matters into her own hands. The mum-of-three, from Australia, told Kidspot that her primary-aged children are expected to do homework because it’s mandatory, but too much is expected of them. 2The Aussie mum does all of her children's homeworkCredit: Getty - Contributor She says her eldest child has been expected to complete great amounts of homework for four and a half years. But none of her children have actually been doing their homework – she has. The mum believes that there is enough pressure put on children enough at school to do well, that she believes the attitude of schools are too full on for young children. Initially she took her concern to her children’s school, but claimed her concerns weren’t appreciated or listened to, so her children would still have to complete their homework. 2She believes that homework puts unnecessary pressure on primary...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A family is turning pain into hope after losing their little boy to gun violence. Zamar Jones was shot and killed while playing on his front porch last year.

    An 11-year-old autistic boy who has been missing for five days in Nebraska had researched online 'how to hide from police' before he vanished and sparked a massive search.  Ryan Larsen has been missing since he walked out of his elementary school in the Omaha neighborhood of La Vista on Monday.  Police say a search of the Larsen family computer revealed the boy had recently looked up 'hiding from the police,' 'hiding underground' and 'how to avoid being spotted.'  The FBI and Center for Missing and Exploited Children have since joined the search as it entered its fifth day.  Ryan Larsen, 11, has been missing since he walked out of his elementary school near Omaha, Nebraska on Monday  The FBI and Center for Missing and Exploited Children have since joined the search as it entered its fifth day La Vista Police Captain Jeremy Kinsey said the sixth-grader, who has autism, was 'high functioning' and that had a history of running away and hiding.

    Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) said her Republican colleagues feel “threatened” by the idea of a Congressional commission to investigate the January 6th storming of the U.S. Capitol. Cheney gave an interview to NBC’s Savannah Guthrie shortly after the House GOP ousted her as their conference chairwoman because she refuses to fall in line behind former President Donald Trump and his 2020 election lies. The vote was a dramatic shift from a previous vote that failed to oust Cheney, so when Guthrie asked her “what changed” since then, Cheney answered “for reasons that I don’t understand, leaders in my party have decided to embrace the former president who launched that attack.” “This isn’t about looking backwards,” Cheney said. “This is about the real-time, current potential damage that he’s doing, that he continues to do.” “Some of your colleagues say though we supported you before Congresswoman Cheney, you made your point, now drop it, let’s focus on the future,” Guthrie said. “Well it is an ongoing threat, so silence is not an option,” Cheney countered. Guthrie moved on by asking Cheney what...
    Yankees’ outfielder Clint Frazier says his recent decrease in playing time has been ‘justified’ Andres Chavez April 26, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditClint Frazier has started the season with a cold streak at the plate. The New York Yankees’ left fielder took a major step forward last season, especially in the patience department, increasing his walk rate from 6.5% in 2019 to 15.6% last season. This year, it is at 17.2%, but it appears he is taking things to the extreme, embracing an approach that seems too passive at times. Because he is slashing .146/.293/.188 with no homers and a 53 wRC+, the Yankees have been decreasing Frazier’s playing time lately. That is something the outfielder is not particularly happy about, but definitely understands. “It’s not fun to not play but if I were to sit back and say that I deserve to be in there every single day based off what I’ve been doing at the plate, then I’d be wrong,” Frazier told the media after the Yankees lost on Sunday, per NJ...
    Knicks News: Julius Randle details why he’s been so successful, full-team effort demolishes Pelicans By: Alexander Wilson April 21, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditSometimes, all it takes is the right coach to unlock potential in players. For the New York Knicks, new head coach Tom Thibodeau has allowed Julius Randle to find his capabilities, and he’s reaching new bounds this season after a disappointing 2020 campaign. Randle most recently won the Eastern Conference player of the week award, averaging 35.8 points last week. His rise this year has played a significant part in the Knicks’ overall success, as they are firmly saddled in the fifth seat after a dominant victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday evening. Randle dominated the boards, picking up 10 rebounds and posting 16 points, in addition to seven assists. While his range from downtown wasn’t efficient again, Charlotte, he found ways to make an impact, playing in 40 minutes and demanding attention from opposing defenders, opening up clean shots for players like Reggie Bullock, RJ Barrett, Derrick Rose, and...

    World No. 9 Bianca Andreescu stunned the in-form Garbine Muguruza at the Miami Open 2021 yesterday. After losing the first set, the Canadian star made a terrific comeback and won the remaining two sets quite easily. The final scoreline of the match was 3-6, 6-3, 6-2.

    WHEN Jude Bellingham left Birmingham City, aged 16 and having made 44 first-team appearances, the club retired his No 22 shirt.

He is absolute mustard. Midway through last season, he was being strongly linked with Manchester United and I spoke to a couple of mates on the coaching staff at Birmingham about it. I thought it might be a bit too soon for him to make such a massive move — but those guys who worked with him said: “Absolutely, 100 per cent, he would go to United and play straight away.” In the end, Jude moved to Dortmund, deciding that...

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Rose Lavelle has blossomed into one of the most lethal offensive weapons on a stacked USWNT. But on the club level, the 25-year-old is struggling to find playing time with Manchester City. Keeping Lavelle on the bench is a missed opportunity for the WSL side and its manager, Gareth Taylor. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Rose Lavelle has blossomed into a bona fide star for the perennially stacked US Women's National Team. Even the most casual women's soccer fans will remember Lavelle's megawatt breakout during the 2019 World Cup final when the then-24-year-old fired a left-footed bullet off the dribble to deliver the nail in the Netherlands' coffin and secure the USWNT's fourth star. Lavelle has been one of the national team's most lethal weapons...

    ITALY football legend Christian Vieri has claimed he would have been the 'best batsman in the world' had he picked cricket over football. The former Inter Milan ace, now 47, scored over 250 goals during his illustrious career as a footballer, starring at two World Cups. 3Christian Vieri has claimed he would have been the 'best batsman in the world' if he'd picked cricket over footballCredit: Reuters But the Italian has claimed he'd have made a world-class cricketer had he opted for a bat and ball over a pair of boots. Vieri spent ten years living in Australia between the ages of four and 14. During that time in Sydney, the 49-cap Italy international fell in love with cricket. Even comparing his skills to West Indies legend Chris Gayle, Vieri told Stats Perform News: "It's a bit strange that I grew up in Australia... "But when I was there it was normal – going to school, playing football, playing cricket, playing different sports. "I was a big fan of cricket.

    South African variant of COVID-19 identified in California, Newsom says Georgia prosecutors investigating election interference Bears’ RB David Montgomery stirs trade talk with “Playing in Chicago has been fun” tweet, then says “Y’all took that completely wrong!” There have been plenty of cases of athletes either announcing or lobbying for a trade on Twitter, and so a tweet from Chicago Bears’ running back David Montgomery Wednesday that seemed to many to be hinting at one of those two things took off.  Montgomery was a key piece of the Bears’ offense down the stretch and helped get them into the playoffs, so a move involving him would certainly be a big deal. And there had been some talk of the Bears making a big move, and maybe even trading for a veteran quarterback like Carson Wentz (or possibly Deshaun Watson, or possibly someone else), so some interpreted Montgomery’s tweet as related to that. © Provided by Awful Announcing David Montgomery against the Texans in December 2020. The tweet wasn’t clear, though, and some thought it was just an issue of...
    (CNN)Remember that time a violent mob smashed its way into the Capitol, killed a police officer and occupied the Senate chambers, hunting for terrified members of Congress who were forced to hide? Errol LouisRemember how some in the mob constructed a gallows with a hangman's noose outside the Capitol, then rampaged through the halls searching for the vice president and the speaker of the house -- the officials second and third in line of succession to the President -- chanting "Hang Pence!" and "Where's Nancy?" And remember how the specific goal of the violent attack -- overturning the election of President Joe Biden -- was being advanced by sycophantic lawmakers who shamefully tried to invalidate the votes of an estimated 10 million Americans in Arizona and Pennsylvania and declare Donald Trump the winner?Read More Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri apparently hope you don't remember any of that. Or that you'll treat it like one more bit of the normal back-and-forth of politics. Not this time.

    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather said Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that “the Republican Party as a whole and overwhelmingly has been playing with the fire of white nationalism.” When asked if President Trump should be held accountable for the Capital Hill riot, Rather said, “The answer is yes. Donald Trump can be made to pay a price. I would argue that it is absolutely essential for the general health of our democracy in our country that that happen. And we can get things under control.” Hew continued, “You know, everybody knows if you play with fire, you usually get burned. And the Republican Party as a whole and overwhelmingly has been playing with the fire of white nationalism, false grievances, crazy conspiracy theories, lies and outright propaganda. And now for the Republicans it’s a wildfire burning out of control.” He added, “There is one thing very clear, that we are in the situation we’re in right now primarily because of Donald Trump and his selfishness and his recklessness, about that there has to be a consequence for him....

    More On: new york knicks The Knicks are must-watch Knicks guard keeping receipts after surprising start: ‘We ain’t s–t’ Knicks veteran dominating under extreme circumstances The Knicks are finally worth your time From the minute the Knicks hired Tom Thibodeau as their new head coach in July, their defense figured to be in for an upgrade. But there was no guarantee a tangible change — and the wins that followed — would come this quickly. The Knicks left New York on Dec. 27 fresh off their first win of the season, a surprising defeat of the Bucks. They returned on Tuesday as winners of four of their last five entering Wednesday night’s showdown against the Jazz at the Garden, with plenty of strong efforts fueling their surge but the defense chief among them. “I think the togetherness is a big part of it. I think the willingness to share the ball, to play hard for each other,” Thibodeau said after Monday’s 113-108 win over the Hawks. “[But] it starts with our defense and the rebounding. We still have to...

    TOTTENHAM star Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League this season, according to Glenn Hoddle. The Spurs star – who joined in the summer from Southampton for £18m – has been in outstanding form so far this campaign. 2Glenn Hoddle has hailed Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile HojbjergCredit: Getty The 25-year-old Denmark international has helped Jose Mourinho's men to fourth in the table and a charge at the Premier League title. And Spurs legend Hoddle believes he has been the catalyst for their outstanding start – and is an extension of his manager on the pitch. The Amazon Prime Video pundit said: “He's an absolute classic Jose Mourinho player. He needed a player like him in midfield. “Early on in the season, I wasn't sure what he was going to do, was he going to be an out-and-out stopper? “He's better than that. He uses the ball really well, he keeps it simple and knows what his attributes are. “For that style of player, he's way ahead of anyone in the league this year. He's playing superbly...
    (CNN)More than a year and a half ago, special counsel Robert Mueller had caught on to what President Donald Trump might do with his pardon power."Why would I take it off the table?" Trump had said at the height of investigators' pressure for witnesses in the Russia investigation, Mueller noted in his final report.The special counsel looked closely at whether Trump was obstructing justice by dangling pardons for his former advisers Roger Stone, Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn -- then all targets of the investigation. But those types of hints-in-progress wouldn't come to fruition until Trump's final weeks as President, long after Mueller's work ended and the advisers sided with loyalism to Trump over the FBI and other investigators' concerns of election security.Trump finally gave Flynn, Manafort and Stone, plus George Papadopoulos and Alex van der Zwaan, two other difficult defendants from the Mueller investigation, full pardons, making clear that their reward had come at least in some part for lying to protect the President or to thwart his foes.The pardons also help Trump make his case that the Mueller...
