    AHH, remember the golden days of football coverage? When Dick Stayed Up, Neville Wore Prada, and Young Boys had Wankdorf Erection Relief*?

We’ve LOL’d at funny names, placed whoopee cushions under chairs and drawn giant phalluses over everything. Not for much longer.                            The Sun printed a light-hearted report last week about an FA WSL Cup quarter-final between West Ham and Chelsea. Chelsea won 4-2, their scorers: “Harder, Harder, Cuthbert, Harder”. Which, as fans pointed out, sounded a bit like “posh people having sex”. Alas, Chelsea’s talented Scots midfielder, Erin Cuthbert — the Cuthbert — took offence.

    President Joe Biden admitted his administration fell short on supplying the U.S. with coronavirus tests, but during his Wednesday press conference said he believed the pandemic was getting better.  'Should we have done more testing earlier, yes,' the president said at the top of the press conference, marking the end of his first year in office. 'But we're doing more now. We've gone from zero at-home tests a year ago to 375 million tests on the market in just this month.'  The Omicron surge of COVID-19 hit the United States in the run-up to the December holidays, leading to a widespread coronavirus testing shortage.  President Joe Biden admitted his administration fell short on supplying the U.S. with coronavirus tests, but during his Wednesday press conference said he believed the pandemic was getting better This week, the administration started allowing Americans to sign up for four free COVID tests via the U.S. Postal Service's website.  The tests are due in homes at the end of the month.  'Some people may call what's happening right now the new...
    A COUPLE planning a Harry Potter-themed wedding inside the Metaverse have invited 6,000 guests.

The term can also refer to digital spaces which are made more lifelike by the use of virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR). Each metaverse platform usually has its own cryptocurrency that users can buy and use online.

    CNN medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen said Tuesday on CNN’s “Inside Politics” that parents who have made the decision to vaccinate themselves should also “vaccinate their children.” Wen said, “We have failed our children. Throughout this entire pandemic, we have not prioritized our kids, and now we’re seeing the effect. We’re seeing the mental health impact as you mentioned, but we’re also seeing the impact on nutrition and physical activity. These studies are also showing that school lockdowns have an impact on increasing childhood obesity which also has implications for diabetes and heart disease for these kids growing later on in life as well.” Anchor John King said, “Sixty percent of the 16 to 17-year-olds are vaccinated, a little more than half 12 to 15. What do you think explains the lagging? It’s only 18%, a little more than that of children aged 5 to 11 who are eligible and not vaccinated. Why is that number still below 20%?” Wen said, “There’s been a fallacy that somehow children don’t get very ill from COVID-19, which we know is just not true. Yes,...

Caroline Hardin, believed to be from the US, revealed how she and her partner use a parenting technique called 'YCYC' in a TikTok video that has been viewed over 900k times. 3Caroline's parenting hack proved popular with other parents who were keen to try itCredit: TIKTOK @general.caronobi In the video, Caroline was asked by a user to explain what 'YCYC" was and how the parents use it in day-to-day life. Caroline wrote in a comment that the acronym YCYC stands for your choice, your consequence. She explained in the video some scenarios where she and her partner use their secret code, to give their child autonomy and learn from their mistakes with natural consequences. She said: "If my kid wants to stay up all night, I don't care. "I literally don't care. "So in that case the consequence would be my loss of free time, which doesn't belong to her (Caroline's daughter) so she can't make that choice. Most read...
    WHENEVER we've moved into a new place, we're always brimming with ideas of ways we could put our own stamp on it - but that quickly gets lost in all the practical stuff we have to do first. In 2007, Gemma and Dean Burton, both 42, moved into their three-bedroom semi-detached house in Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire, and knew that they'd one day get round to injecting some colour into the place. 12This is what the couple's house looked like when they bought itCredit: Mercury 12They swapped the tiles for these vibrant orange onesCredit: Mercury 12The couple lived with the uninspiring decor for 12 yearsCredit: Mercury 12They've sourced antique furniture to match their mid-century aestheticCredit: Mercury 12Gemma and Dean are big 1950s fansCredit: Mercury But next thing they knew, 12 years had passed and they were still living with the uninspiring white walls and dated interiors.

    A Danish health chief has said the Covid-19 Omicron variant is bringing about the end of the pandemic, saying 'we will have our normal lives back in two months.' Speaking to Danish TV 2, Tyra Grove Krause - the chief epidemiologist at Denmark's State Serum Institute - said a new study from the organisation found that the risk of hospitalisation from Omicron is half that seen with the Delta variant. This, she said, has given Danish authorities hope that the Covid-19 pandemic in Denmark could be over in two months time.

New York singer Lisa Gentile claimed Noth accosted her sexually in her apartment after giving her a ride home from the eatery Da Marino in Midtown, then threatened to ruin her career if she ever spoke out. “I was afraid to come forward because Mr. Noth’s power and his threats to ruin my career,” Gentile said at a press conference with her attorney, Gloria Allred.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who only needs to pick up one seat to be in the majority, said he would love to have Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) switch political parties, adding that he would be more comfortable as a Republican. “Obviously, we would love to have him on our team… I think he’d be more comfortable,” McConnell said to the New York Times after there have been reports of Manchin contemplating leaving the Democrat party. The reports emerged after the administration of President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. accused the senator of disloyalty when he effectively killed the “marquee legislation” of Biden’s legislative agenda, the Build Back Better Act (BBB), after saying he could not vote for the bill. “I’ve done everything possible. And you know my concerns I had, and I still have these concerns and where I’m at right now,” Manchin said during an appearance on Fox News Sunday. “If I can’t go home and explain it to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it. I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t.” McConnell also said that he was “astonished”...
    New York Governor Kathy Hochul's recently reinstated statewide indoor mask mandate was met by outrage and the quick refusal of several county executives to enforce it. Some of my fellow New Yorkers are rightfully refusing to return to the same nonsensical COVID rules that we thought we had left behind. But this backlash raises a profound question for us all. Where is the outrage on behalf of our children, who have been forced to endure these restrictions going on 2 years? Why don't we insist on the same quality of life -- that we demand for ourselves -- for our own kids? Every Halloween, my neighborhood hosts a children's parade. All of the children meet in the schoolyard of the local elementary school, and then march to the park for trick-or-treating. It's a great event where kids can show off their costumes, see their friends, and come together as a community. It's one of the events that makes my neighborhood special. In 2020, the event was cancelled; people in my NYC neighborhood, traumatized by the spring, understood. The anger over...
    Friday on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) explained his state’s new policy aimed at preventing the Biden administration from surreptitiously placing illegal immigrants in Florida. The Sunshine State governor said such measures were justified because they prioritize his own citizens over those here illegally. “For one, any of these contractors that are facilitating Biden’s illegal policies by bringing people into Florida, oftentimes flying in at two o’clock in the morning with no notice to the State, anyone who is doing that forfeits the ability to have contracts with State and local government in the State of Florida, and they are going to be responsible for providing restitution to the State of Florida for every single person that they bring because when they dump somebody, a lot of costs end up being borne by the State in the future, whether that’s education, healthcare, whether that’s the criminal justice system,” DeSantis said. “Unfortunately, we had somebody brought from Biden that murdered somebody in Jacksonville just a few weeks ago, and so we’re very concerned about doing that, and we...

    FROM acne breakouts to wrinkles, rashes and a dull complexion, it is well known that sleeping in make-up is not good for the skin. But these four women swear by it. Make-up artist to the stars Charlotte Tilbury, 48, says she never lets her husband George see her without mascara and eyeliner. 9Four women who swear by make-up remove their second skin for the first time to tell us what they think of the natural look The beauty entrepreneur, whose clients have included Amal Clooney and Kim Kardashian, says having it on in the bedroom keeps the “magic alive”. Country superstar Dolly Parton, 75, also leaves hers on for bed – and then cleanses and reapplies in the morning in case there is an emergency in the middle of the night. Whether it is keeping foundation on for two days, sleeping on their backs to ensure the make-up remains in place overnight or re-applying slap before sex, these women are dependent on the contents of their beauty bags – and say they look younger for it.

But they’ve been competitive in a few games, looking solid before quarterback Tyrod Taylor injured his hamstring. And the team held a 22-9 lead over New England on Sunday before allowing the Patriots to score 16 unanswered points to win 25-22. There were some special teams miscues during the game, with a punt going off a player’s helmet for 0 yards, a missed extra point, and a missed 56-yard field goal. Head coach David Culley said those things come down to execution. That’s part of why Culley feels the Texans have to stop beating themselves. “I don’t think we have to be perfect, but we have to be more consistent than what we’ve been,” Culley said, via Aaron Wilson of Sports Talk 790. “When you’re...

    (CNN)With more than 1.2 billion people, Africa is the second most populous continent in the world. And with a growing middle class, it has become a target for an increasing number of companies and multinationals looking to grow their profits.The potential payoff for brands is significant, with household spending across Africa worth an estimated $2.5 trillion by 2030.But marketing products to this vast consumer base is tricky, and the rapid growth of mobile phone adoption across the continent means international advertising giants like Ogilvy have had to develop new strategies.CNN's Cyril Vanier spoke with Ogilvy South Africa's Group CEO, Enver Groenewald, about the agency's role on the continent, and how and where advertising dollars will be seen in the future.The following interview was edited and condensed for clarity.Read MoreCyril Vanier: When it started in Africa, the company played a significant role in boosting South Africa's economy and South African companies.

    President Joe Biden visited New York and New Jersey on Tuesday to view flood damage from Hurricane Ida that killed 52 in the Northeast – and warned that the nation was now experiencing extreme weather in 'real time.' Biden is meeting with state and local leaders and planning to tour devastation in the area, just days after visiting storm wracked neighborhoods near New Orleans and on the Louisiana Gulf coast.  'Every part of the country, every part of the country is getting hit by extreme weather,' Biden said Tuesday. 'We’re now living in real-time what the country’s going to look like,' mentioning disasters that have hit Louisiana, Mississippi, California, Idaho the Northeast, and other areas.  'We can’t turn it back very much, but we can prevent it from getting worse,' he said, referencing actions to deal with climate change.

    ON Wednesday night, among a crowd of thousands, a heavily pregnant woman made her way to Abbey Gate to be processed alongside her family. Hours later a suicide bomber in that same crowd killed 13 US Marines and more than 100 Afghans. 1Smoke billows from the Kabul airport area after a blastCredit: EPA It is hard to imagine the desperation that drove her to run the gauntlet of the Taliban to seek a new life in the UK. The family were being sponsored under the Government’s Afghan Relocation Scheme. Our debt to these people runs for 20 years. In many cases their knowledge has helped to save British lives.

    MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross interviewed voting rights activist LaTosha Brown about Saturday’s Make Good Trouble Rally, which is amplifying American concerns over voting rights legislation. “We are right now in 2021, we have less voting rights now than we had in 1965 when the voting rights act was signed,” said Brown, co-founder of Black Voters Matter. “There is a lot of unfinished business that we have to deal with in this nation.” Brown stated that the goals of this rally are to “really be able to lift up and commemorate what they did 58 years ago,” as well as to, “amplify the message that the people are not going to give up. We’re not going to stop, we’re not finished until in this country we secure the right to vote that people are not punished because they participate in an election, but that we have free and fair elections and all citizens have equal access to the ballot.” Cross emphasized that, “it kind of feels like were in a quagmire here,” additionally questioning, “if our federal government is not going to...
    WHEN Laurie and Chris Brown first met through Tinder seven years ago, the couple were both renting separate flats and hardly had the time to ever explore beyond their local area.

    The abandonment of Afghanistan and its people is tragic, dangerous, unnecessary, not in their interests and not in ours. In the aftermath of the decision to return the country to the same group from which the carnage of 9/11 arose, and in a manner that seems almost designed to parade our humiliation, the question that allies and enemies alike pose is – has the West lost its strategic will? By that I mean, is it able to learn from experience, think strategically, define our interests strategically and on that basis commit strategically? Is 'long term' a concept we are still capable of grasping? Is the nature of our politics now inconsistent with asserting our traditional global leadership role? And do we care? As leader of our country when we decided to join America in removing the Taliban from power in 2001, and who saw the high hopes we had of what we could achieve for the people and the world subside under the weight of bitter reality, I know better than most how difficult are the decisions of leadership and...
    Veterans of the war in Afghanistan have told of their guilt and anger that their local allies may have been left to die amid the Taliban onslaught as the US withdraws its troops.   As of Sunday, only about 2,000 Afghan allies, who served as interpreters, fixers and translators among other roles in the war, had been evacuated from the country since evacuations began in July, according to the NY Times.  The US has desperately been trying to evacuate Embassy staff and civilians since the capital of Kabul fell to the Taliban on Sunday. The Biden Administration has said it expects to evacuate 20,000 Afghan civilians who are eligible for 'special immigrant visas' in the coming weeks - but aid groups have said the number needing to be evacuated could be 80,000. And as the Taliban tightens its grip on Kabul - with reports of the group setting up checkpoints in the city and barricading the entrances to its airport - US veteran say they are increasingly worried for their Afghan friends who helped during the war.  'I want to suit...

    "Sunday Night in America" host Trey Gowdy used his show to talk about the recent takeover of Afghanistan by Taliban forces and whether the United States followed through on its commitments.  Gowdy said despite our countless losses since the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the War on Terror, the same terrorists responsible managed to retake power. "We’re just weeks away from the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on our country. Three thousand lives were taken that day. Thousands of lives taken that day and thousands of lives have been lost since in defense of our nation. Tens of thousands of our sons and daughters have been injured. And more than a trillion dollars of your money has been spent in Afghanistan alone. And we are left to wonder why," Gowdy said.

    A climate change demonstrator in Tampa, Florida in April 2019. The 3,949-page report the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released on Aug. 9 leaves little room for optimism: Things are bad. They’re going to get worse. They might get catastrophic. (And in case there’s still a question, the report says, the problem is “unequivocally caused by human activities.”) “Each of the last four decades has been successively warmer than any decade that preceded it since 1850,” the IPCC’s working group reports. “… It is virtually certain that hot extremes (including heat waves) have become more frequent and more intense across most land regions since the 1950s.” The global surface temperature during the first two decades of the 21st century is about 1 degree Celsius warmer than it was from 1850-1900. To cap warming at 1.5 degrees, the world can only release 10 years’ worth of global carbon dioxide emissions.  In other words, the planet—the U.S., Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, India, North Korea, everyone—has to sharply reduce carbon emissions starting, like, now and go carbon-neutral within 15, maybe 20...
    New infographics created by scientists at Kings College London show how the generation we belong to affects our opinions and lifestyle.  The interactive graphs show how schools of thought differ between Millennials, Baby Boomers and Gen X around subjects including homosexuality, race and gender roles. According to the data, British Millennials, who were born between 1977 and 1995, aren't as tolerant as Gen Z when it comes to same-sex marriage. And the youngest generation of adults, known as Gen Z, are not only rejecting cigarettes and alcohol but have the healthiest body weight too.  If you were born between 1977 and 1995, you're officially a Millennial (also known as Generation Y), pictured The graphs are available on a new website, created by the Policy Institute at King's, and tell the story of 'how when we're born shapes who we are'.

    The NFL reports nearly 90 percent of its players have been vaccinated against Covid-19. But as a hesitancy to get vaccinated looms over the remaining 10 percent, it poses a greater chance of having outbreaks and canceled games during the season. With the NFL desperately hoping to avoid the season being interrupted by Covid, especially at the hand of the unvaccinated, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith firmly stated he’s in favor of mandating the jab. Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins recently missed four practices after being in close contact of a teammate who tested positive for Covid. Vowing to make sure it doesn’t happen again, Cousins won’t get vaccinated, but he’ll follow social distancing rules and considered furthering those protocols by building a plexiglass fortress around himself. “I’m appalled by what Kirk Cousins just said,” Smith ranted during Friday’s First Take. “I’m appalled by the fact that he’s in a position that he’s in and he would utter such ridiculousness.” “I’m a proponent of the NFL…mandating that you be vaccinated or you can’t be in the league. You can’t play,” Smith...
    Updated 04/08/2021 – 10:42 TO Jordi Xammar His hands shook as he attended to the press after winning the Olympic bronze with Nicols Rodrguez in 470. About 20 minutes had passed since they jumped into the water to celebrate after crossing the finish line, but the emotion was still intact. He kept fiddling with a bottle in his hand. “We have fulfilled a dream. We have been waiting our whole lives for today. When you start sailing you dream of going to the Games and winning a medal. Being here, being able to fulfill the best of dreams is special. This morning I was brushing my teeth and I knew I was facing a unique opportunity and I have said to myself: ‘Do it however you want, but come back with a medal “. We have suffered a lot but it has been a race like the entire campaign, suffered but without stopping to believe, without giving up and fighting to the end “, Xammar confesses. This morning while I was brushing my teeth I said to myself: ‘Do...

    Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) raged against the mask mandate in the U.S. House amid the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. “We have a crisis at our border and we’re playing footsie with mask mandates in the People’s House,” said Roy on the House floor. “I mean it’s absolutely absurd what this body is doing, the People’s House. It’s an embarrassment. It’s a mockery.” “And the American people are fed up. They want to go back to life. They want to go back to business,” he continued. “They want to go back to school without their children being forced to wear masks. To be put in a corner. To have mental health issues.” Roy went on to slam House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for reimposing the chamber’s mask mandate “while we’ve got thousands of people pouring across our border and Democrats don’t do a darn thing about it, heavily infected with Covid.” The House physician announced the reinstatement of the House mask mandate on Tuesday amid the spread of the Delta variant. The announcement came the same day as the CDC’s new...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava will give an update Wednesday afternoon on the steps being taken to combat the surge in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations. The mayor is concerned about the county’s latest positivity number for COVID cases. READ MORE: Deadly Triple Shooting In Deerfield Beach The update comes amid new recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. It now recommends that all Americans wear masks indoors where COVID is surging, fueled by the delta variant. The CDC’s guidance affects about 60 percent of U.S. counties, where there are substantial or high transmission rates. That includes all of Florida. “There is no doubt the reason we have so much disease right now is because it has gone after those who are unprotected, unvaccinated. The vast majority of transmission that is happening in this country is happening among unvaccinated people,” said CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky during an interview on CBS This Morning. Walensky said vaccinated people can also play a role. “I think it’s important to realize that with new data it is known...

In the early afternoon of Feb. 8, the day after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, we taped what we didn't know then would be the final episode of the "Yahoo Sports NFL Podcast" with Terez Paylor and Charles Robinson.  For the forty-five minutes after the microphones turned off, with the arduous 2020 NFL season finally in the rear-view mirror, Terez, Charles and producer Brett Rader talked about the future and change. There were plans to refresh the artwork for the show, to update theme music that was going stale, to change the name of the podcast to better reflect the hosts and a show that found its footing over the course of the previous three seasons and racked up over 1,000 five-star reviews from podcast listeners in the process. The next day, everything changed. ...
    During an interview with ABC on Thursday, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona stated that he expects “all schools across the country to give students full-time schooling, five days a week,” for the fall, schools need to do what they should to make schools safe to be open now, and that “there’s no reason” schools can’t be opened in the fall. He added, “We have to focus on, if we really want our schools reopened, we have to make sure we’re getting vaccinated in areas where they’re not getting vaccinated.” Cardona said, “I expect all schools across the country to give students full-time schooling, five days a week, in the fall. Our students have been waiting long enough for that. I’m glad to see that the data got better as the year progressed. But it’s time to bring our students back full-time. And keep in mind, we were able to do it successfully in places that used mitigation strategies, so there’s no reason that I feel we can’t do that in the fall.” He added, “We have to focus on, if we...
    A HIGH-flying couple who quit the rat race to travel around the UK's 15 national parks living in a souped-up minibus, have cut their outgoings from over £3,500 to around £250 a month. After meeting online in 2018, graphic designers Charlie Osman, 28, and Josh Akhtar, 29, were going places - making enough money to rent a £1,600 a month flat together in the shadow of London's famous Tower Bridge. 9Charlie Osman, 28, and Josh Akhtar, 29, have cut their monthly outgoings to just £250 after moving into a vanCredit: PA Real Life But, instead of dreaming of corporate success and exotic holidays, the pair longed to live in a campervan - finally realising their dream in October 2020 after a sponsor spotted them on social media and funded their national park challenge. Charlie says the meagre cost of their new life means they are financially and spiritually better off, adding: "Life is richer this way and we love it. “We already lived in a studio flat, so we thought there wouldn’t be a huge difference living in a bus....

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” DNC Chair Jaime Harrison discussed Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and their reluctance to do away with the filibuster to pass voting legislation and stated that “Rome is on fire. Our democracy is on fire. And it’s going to be incumbent upon all us to put out the flames.” Host Ali Velshi asked, “[F]or Sens. Sinema and Manchin, they’re worried about how busting the filibuster wrecks democracy, except, in the process, democracy’s being wrecked. You’re an important guy in that conversation. You are the chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Where do you stand on this? What do you — what conversations do you have with these legislators who could change the course of history as it relates to voting in this country?” Harrison answered, “Well, as I said, democracy’s on the line. Justice Kagan yesterday in her dissent basically said that we are pouring old poison into new bottles. And I think all of our members need to understand that. That if they want democracy, this is your time...
    Getty Adam Thielen spoke on the improvements of the Vikings roster heading into the 2021 season. Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen admitted he gets excited around this point in the NFL offseason. Free agency is barren, rookies are finding their new homes and contract disputes are becoming clear. The Vikings shelled out nearly $50 million to reload a struggled defense that weighed down the league’s fourth-most productive offense in yards per game (393.3) a season ago. With the defense refortified, Thielen is especially excited for the upcoming season. “Every year, I’m excited at this time of year, but I truly can feel confident in saying this is the most excited I’ve been in a long time,” the Minnesota native said during minicamps. “Does that mean you’re going to have success? No. You gotta go out there and prove it and that’s what we’re trying to do.” The latest Vikings news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Vikings newsletter here!

    Oakland, California's, Democratic-majority city council passed a budget last week that slashes the police department's budget by $17 million, as the city continues to hold its place in the top 10 most dangerous cities in the United States.  Oakland Police Chief Leronne Armstrong joined "Fox News Primetime" on Tuesday to sound off exclusively on what he called the crisis facing both his department and his city. A measured Armstrong criticized the city council's decision, telling host Jesse Watters the move will have grave impact on police response times and more. Watters noted that crime has gotten so bad in Oakland that a television news crew was robbed in front of city hall while interviewing a city official from the office of violence prevention. Homicides and carjackings both doubled in that city last year, he reported. Video"There are people who believe that less resources and violence prevention will make the city safer but we [at Oakland PD] clearly don't believe you need to reduce police forces in order to achieve safety," Armstrong said.  "We believe that we need more resources...
    After the Biden administration's Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Georgia's new election law, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said on Tuesday that the "truth is on their side." "We have some great attorneys and we will meet them and beat them in a court of law. We have the truth on our side," Raffensperger told "The Brian Kilmeade Show." The Justice Department on Friday filed a lawsuit against Georgia over the state's new voting law. The lawsuit will challenge several of the provisions in Georgia Senate Bill 202, according to the DOJ. "The right of all eligible citizens to vote is the central pillar of our democracy, the right from which all other rights ultimately flow," Attorney General Merrick B. Garland said in a statement. "This lawsuit is the first step of many we are taking to ensure that all eligible voters can cast a vote; that all lawful votes are counted; and that every voter has access to accurate information."

    Oil rallies to highest finish since 2018 as traders keep eye on developments in Iran This 75-year-old theater chain has filed for bankruptcy © Provided by Sports Illustrated WWE is marking the return of fans in a big way by going all out at SummerSlam in Las Vegas. WWE shows return to the road in less than a month, starting mid-July in Texas. The connection with the crowd has been sorely missing from the product on a weekly basis for the past 15 months. Although there was a glimmer of hope at WrestleMania 37, which followed the Super Bowl at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium with a limited crowd, the upcoming slate of shows will be full capacity, hitting its summer crescendo with SummerSlam in August at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Stephanie McMahon, who is WWE’s chief brand officer, is grateful that the key ingredient to WWE’s success is soon returning. “Without our fans, we don’t have a product,” McMahon says. “We are so excited to return to our fans in July, and then again in August for...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I am writing on behalf of several co-workers. What is the point at which etiquette allows us to refuse to indulge another person’s eccentricity? We have a female co-worker who is afraid to be near men. We don’t know if she had a bad experience with men or if she is just strange, but at any rate, she will walk all the way to the other end of the office to avoid passing a male co-worker. At staff meetings, she insists that no men be allowed to sit next to her, and she has demanded that men wait for the next elevator so she won’t have to share it with them. (One refused, told her he was there first, and boarded the elevator; she spent the rest of the day in a cold fury.) She is otherwise a competent employee who does her job well. Management has tried to reasonably accommodate her, but it’s a small office and the gender ratio is about 50/50, so her peculiarity is impacting the efficiency of the rest of the staff....
    Ohio Republican Bernie Moreno, a candidate for U.S. Senate, has released a video message telling those seeking to immigrate to America illegally to “wait in line.” “Everyone is angry when you’re waiting your turn and someone cuts in line, whether at a grocery store, an airline gate, or a public bathroom,” Moreno says in the video. “But when an illegal immigrant cuts the line, no one is angrier than the legal immigrant — I should know. My family came here when I was five years old.” Moreno continued, noting in the video that he “achieved the American dream” and explained that this is a “personal” issue for him to discuss: I came here legally. I learned the language. I started a business, and like many immigrants, I achieved the American dream. This is personal to me. I firmly believe we have to stop illegal immigration. We have to finish the wall not because we hate the people outside the wall, but because we love the people inside the wall. I came here legally as an immigrant. Calling me racist...
