    IN 10 year's time, we'll look back on lockdown as the time we wore the same pair of tracksuits everyday for a week and baked enough banana bread to feed a village. But for Zoe Smith, 24, from Devon, the pandemic allowed her to finally rediscover her personal style - after years of trying to "conform" to stereotypical mum clothes. 6Zoe's dead doll earrings caused a big stir onlineCredit: Jam Press 6The mum said she finally rediscovered her personal style during the pandemicCredit: Jam Press 6She isn't afraid to express herself on the school runCredit: Jam Press After giving birth to her twins Haylan and Hunter (who are both autistic) when she was 19, the now mum-of-three says she felt completely lost with her wardrobe. Describing how she "dropped a part of herself", Zoe said: "Women are told that motherhood looks one way and one way only and anything other than that is morally wrong, but women don’t just lose all of their interests once they have children. “The idea that we should give large parts of ourselves up as...
    A DISTRAUGHT groom has taken to the internet for help regarding a tough position he is in ahead of his upcoming nuptials. He claimed he uninvited his mother to his wedding because she doesn’t want his future stepson to be present, but now he’s not sure he made the best decision. 3A man has revealed his mother is being so rude about his wedding that he uninvited herCredit: Getty 3The groom claimed his mother tried getting his future stepson banned from the wedding by paying for half of it herself and using that against himCredit: Getty The man, who fleshed out his concerns in an anonymous post to Reddit, said he met his future wife seven years ago when she was a single teen mother to an 11-month-old baby.

    FOR a lot of people, starting the day by making the bed is part of a daily routine. However, one cleaning expert has explained that it's actually a bad idea to make the bed first thing - because it increases the likelihood of dust mites getting in the sheets. 2Don't make your bed first thing in the morning, one cleaning expert has advisedCredit: tiktok "You should never make your bed first thing in the morning," Cleanhome_cleanmind wrote on TikTok, over a video of someone making a bed. In the caption, they further explained: "Letting your bed air out (for at least 1 hour) is a good solution to reduce the number of dust mites." Viewers were quick to take to the comments section to weigh in on the potentially controversial suggestion, with one writing: "My mother always used to say 'an unmade bed is a healthy bed'." "Let it breathe, let it breathe," someone else commented. "I open all the windows every morning and roll the duvet down to the bottom," a third person added. ...
    In a recent interview for his film, The Tragedy of Macbeth, Oscar-winning star Denzel Washington spoke about how he feels the U.S. should already be considered a “post racial” society and why actors should reject the preoccupation of racial “diversity.” The film, released on Apple TV+ in December, and in theaters this month, is the latest adaptation of the Shakespearean tragedy about a Scottish general who’s life spirals into despair as he commits a series of murders to protect his political position after being told by three witches that he will become the King of Scotland. The Training Day star plays the lead in a story traditionally focused on a white protagonist, but Washington thinks the diverse casting decisions for the Joel Coen-directed film should not be a big deal. Washington added that he does not want fans to watch the film merely because it has a “diverse” cast. “Obviously we are diverse, so I think that’s a great thing,” Washington told NBC BLK on Jan. 11.

    LET'S be honest - you could be in the happiest relationship in the world and broaching the subject of money is always going to be awkward. Well in an attempt to avoid having the tense personal finance conversation, plenty of couples who live together simply decide to split their bills down the middle. 2Victoria urged couples to pay bills based on their percentage incomeCredit: instagram/victoria_devine Sounds fair, right? Well according to finance expert Victoria Devine, this could be doing one of you a serious disservice. Earlier this month, the author of She's On The Money shared an Instagram Reel urging couples to rethink this arrangement. She said: "’I'm about to start a lot of awkward conversations in peoples relationships but… I DO NOT BELIEVE IN PAYING EQUAL RENT!!!

    Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna said in an interview Thursday that it was a mistake for Twitter to suppress stories about Hunter Biden's laptop.  'I am not for having either the government, or you know, tech companies ultimately being the arbiter of truth,' Khanna said in a Zoom interview with Joe Lonsdale for the American Optimist podcast. 'In the book, I write about how I thought it was a mistake for Twitter to take down some of the stuff about Hunter Biden.'  In October, Twitter locked The New York Post out of its account after the newspaper shared its stories based on files found in a laptop abandoned at a computer store in Delaware by the first son.   Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna said in an interview Thursday that it was a mistake for Twitter to suppress stories about Hunter Biden's laptop. 'I am not for having either the government, or you know, tech companies ultimately being the arbiter of truth,' Khanna said
    In this article C JPM JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon speaks at the Boston College Chief Executives Club luncheon in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S., November 23, 2021.Brian Snyder | ReutersBanks have been one of the main beneficiaries of high inflation recently because their profit margins tend to expand when higher prices force central banks to raise interest rates. At least, that was the thinking as investors bid up bank shares while rates climbed and inflation reached multi-decade highs. Now, megabanks including JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup are disclosing that hot inflation in one area — employee wages — is casting a shadow over the next few years. Shares of JPMorgan fell more than 6% on Friday after the bank said that expenses will climb 8% to roughly $77 billion this year, driven by wage inflation and technology investments. Higher expenses will likely push the bank's returns in 2022 and 2023 below recent results and the lender's 17% return-on-capital target, according to CFO Jeremy Barnum. "We've seen a somewhat elevated attrition and a very dynamic labor market, as the rest of the...
    A Baltimore man who pleaded guilty to torching his ex-girlfriend’s home said he was surprised by a plea deal he received, saying it sends the wrong message to criminals in the city.  "I was just charged with 18 different counts, that was dropped to 10, that was dropped to one. When I shouldn’t be out right now. I disrupted somebody’s life. I traumatized somebody because of how I felt in a situation," Luther Trent said, according to WBFF. "Personally, yes, I want to be out but principally, no I shouldn’t be out because I could have done a lot more damage than I did. I was expecting to get time. People who were in that situation, they should expect to get time." Trent pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree arson after setting his ex-girlfriend’s house on fire while she and her two roommates were inside in May of last year. He was released from jail after serving fewer than six months due to a plea deal from the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office.  For the first time, Baltimore,...
    White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci cautioned Wednesday that the U.S. should not take reports of milder disease from the omicron variant of the coronavirus as a "signal that we can pull back from" health restrictions and recommendations.  Speaking at a White House COVID-19 task force briefing, the nation's top infectious disease expert said multiple sources of preliminary data indicate a decreased severity in disease from the variant of concern.  WHITE HOUSE INSISTS CDC LED BY SCIENCE AMID SHIFTING COVID-19 GUIDANCE However, he said, scientists need more "definitive assessment of similarity with longer-term follow-up" in the U.S. and in different countries.  "But, the big caveat is, we should not be complacent since the increased transmissibility of variant … omicron … might be overridden by the sheer volume of the number of cases that may be a reduced severity, but could still stress our hospital [systems]. Because a certain proportion of a large volume of cases – no matter what – are going to be severe," Fauci explained. Dr. Anthony Fauci meets with the White House COVID-19 Response...
    Jamie Lynn Spears responded to a hateful online troll who wished rape on her daughters in a heartless Instagram message. The 30-year-old actress captured the harassment and shared screengrabs to her millions of followers on Monday morning, but gave grace to the bully by blurring out their name.  The anonymous user callously wrote Spears: 'White trash b**** I hope your daughter gets raped. Both of them.'  Jamie shares 13-year-old daughter Maddie Briann with ex Casey Aldridge, and has a three-year-old daughter, Ivey, with husband Jamie Watson.  'You may not love me, and that's fine, but THIS shouldn't be tolerated under any circumstances, much less about innocent underage children,' she wrote 'I've gotten beyond use to receiving the love and the hate of strangers, since before I ever even had a choice at the age of like 8, so growing up I had to learn to not acknowledge the hate, and to rise above the evil and NEVER give negativity the attention it so desperately wants, but this is one of ones I can't just brush off,' she wrote.  RELATED ARTICLES...
    Last year, there were shortages of COVID-19 tests available right before the holidays as everyone rushed to try and get one before they gathered with their family. Is history repeating itself this year? Not in Maryland. “We’ve got a lot of testing availability and people should be able to find a test,” said Dr. Clifford Mitchell, with the Maryland Department of Health. Maryland has a website to help residents find nearby COVID-19 testing sites. This year, residents can also take a test at home. Many drugstores are stocking COVID-19 at-home antigen test kits. “There’s extensive development and validation that’s done to bring these tests to the market,” said Dr. Mitchell. “They can be slightly less specific, but they are very good for situations where people, for example, may have symptoms, and they’re not clear whether they are COVID symptoms or perhaps flu symptoms or a cold.” Make sure to read the instructions, though — many of them come with two tests and advise you to take them both, 24 hours apart. “The advantage of doing that is if people test...
    WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (KGO) -- All three suspects arrested in a Walnut Creek Nordstrom flash-mob style theft are out of custody, and the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office says two of them shouldn't be.There's now a parole hold and bench warrant out for Dana Dawson's arrest after she didn't show up for court this past Friday.Walnut Creek Police arrested Dawson, who prosecutors say had a gun, following the November Nordstrom theft. She was in violation of her parole, but the department's police chief has said the arresting officers didn't know Dawson was on parole. Chief Jamie Knox has repeatedly said he doesn't know why Dawson's name didn't come up in a national database. Subsequently, Dawson was eligible for and posted bail.RELATED: Arrest warrant issued for Walnut Creek Nordstrom flash mob-style robbery suspect who posted bail"I'm just being real with everybody.

    JUST as it looked like we were slowly getting children back on their feet and catching up with their learning, the question of whether schools will open or not in January suddenly looms again. Despite the heroic efforts of teachers and support staff who have worked tirelessly to keep students learning, the four horsemen of the education apocalypse — a widening attainment gap, an epidemic of mental health problems, a rise in safeguarding hazards and a loss of life chances — have been galloping towards our young people. 2If the Government can protect the NHS and our economy then why can’t it protect our children’s futures?Credit: PA The damage caused by school closures is stark. Primary school pupils were found to be around two and a half months behind when they returned to school, and children with special educational needs were around four months behind. The attainment gap between rich and poor — already large pre-Covid — has worsened, undoing any progress the Government has made over the past decade. As is so often the case, it is disadvantaged children...
    The outbreak of new Covid variant Omicron in the province of Gauteng in South Africa has triggered the sharpest rise in hospitalisations of any previous wave, sparking concerns that a similar outbreak in the UK could overwhelm the NHS. Gauteng alone has seen over 1,000 hospital admissions in the past week, quadrupling the figure recorded just two weeks ago, while South Africa recorded a total of 1,802 hospitalisations in the past week to Friday - the latest day for which data is available.  The virus also appears to be more transmissible, with cases up from around 300 three weeks ago to nearly 7,000 on a seven-day rolling average.   Cases have soared by a massive 408 per cent in just one week while deaths rose from eight to 21 across the same time period, according to the latest figures.  The country's National Institute for Communicable Diseases recorded another 16,366 cases on Saturday, with the vast majority in epicentre Gauteng province - a 408 per cent increase from last weekend when just 3,220 new infections were registered across the previous 24 hours.  It is...
    (CNN)On November 24, the Network for Genomic Surveillance in South Africa identified a new coronavirus variant of concern, dubbed Omicron. Since the variant's initial identification in South Africa, it has been discovered in a number of countries spanning multiple continents, and on Wednesday, the first case of Covid-19 caused by this variant was reported in California. Alane IzuShabir Madhi Two days after news of Omicron's existence was announced, after it had also been detected in Hong Kong and Botswana, the UK issued a travel ban on all foreign travelers from South Africa and a handful of neighboring nations with more than 20 countries, including the US, following suit in some form. This felt like a slap on South Africa's wrist -- and one that will likely hurt the South African people while providing little protection from Omicron to the rest of the world. South Africa should not be punished for being quick to identify the variant and notify the world of its presence. The promises heads of states made at the G20 summit in October to be collaborative in...
    The Catholic Church should feel free to criticize the government when necessary and “shouldn’t be captive to one party or another,” Bishop Daniel E. Flores of Brownsville, Texas, said this week. “The Church has to have an independent voice to say we agree when we can agree, and when we can’t agree we’re going to say something,” Bishop Flores told Crux, an online Catholic news outlet. “And that’s the way it works. I mean, the church is free to speak, and we shouldn’t be captive to one party or another,” he added. Flores is the new head of the doctrine committee of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which is charged with assisting the bishops “in areas of faith and morals, providing expertise and guidance concerning the theological issues that confront the Church in the United States.” The Catholic Church has long been affiliated with the Democratic Party in the United States and up until the 1960s Catholics could be reliably counted on to vote Democrat. The two Roman Catholic presidents to date have both run on the Democratic...
    Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, is yet to fire Allyn Walker, a professor who defended pedophiles and said they shouldn't be ostracized, instead placing them on administrative leave temporarily  The refusal of a Virginia university to fire a transgender assistant professor who defended pedophiles and said they should be given child sex dolls has outraged students, alumni, politicians and the school's LGBTQ board, who say it is proof of a double standard that protects woke staff.   Allyn Walker, 34, is an assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. The non-binary teacher claimed in a recent interview to promote their new book that pedophiles shouldn't be ostracized, that they can't help who they are attracted to and that they should be given child-like sex dolls to satisfy their urges.  Walker, formerly known as Allison, made the comments in an interview to promote their book Long Dark Shadow: Minor Attracted People and their Pursuit of Dignity. They believe pedophiles should be referred to as Minor Attracted People, and that they don't 'choose' who to be attracted to so...
    In this article WMTVIDEO2:5202:52Why Jim Cramer thinks Walmart's Q3 was 'amazing'Squawk BoxCNBC's Jim Cramer said Tuesday that Walmart shares should not be lower — characterizing the move as a Wall Street problem and not an indication of anything wrong with the retail giant's quarterly results. Shares of Walmart opened down more than 1% and slid further on the notion that the company didn't raise prices enough in the third-quarter, resulting in disappointing gross margins. Cramer rejected that premise on "Squawk Box" and "Squawk on the Street," as well as in his morning Investing Club newsletter, saying Walmart is an "inflation fighter" and a "share taker." He praised the retailer for trying to largely absorb increased costs due to product shortages and delays and not passing them onto consumers. "Walmart is keeping prices down aggressively and therefore their gross margins are down. But they are taking share from everybody," Cramer said. "This is the moment to take share during the inflationary period." He added, "I like share versus them cutting price and worrying about gross margin." Tuesday's decline pushed Walmart stock...
    The White House tried to defend President Joe Biden suggesting Kyle Rittenhouse is a white supremacist while calling for calm as the country awaits the verdict in the teenager's homicide trial. "What I'm not going to speak to right now is anything about an ongoing trial, or the president's past comments," White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Monday. "What I can reiterate for you is the president's view that we shouldn't have, broadly speaking, vigilantes patrolling our communities with assault weapons." PSAKI DEPUTY KARINE JEAN-PIERRE GETS HER AUDITION BEHIND THE PODIUM Psaki also repeated Biden's opposition to violent or destructive protests, including "rioting" and "burning" of businesses, after Wisconsin activated its National Guard amid closing arguments. But the White House is in contact with state and local officials, in addition to community leaders, according to Psaki. And the Justice Department has offered deescalation training and contingency planning assistance in case there is a public reaction to the verdict, she added. "President Biden ran on a promise to bring Americans together and to turn down the temperature...

    A FRUSTRATED wife has taken to the internet to ask for help in handling her “overbearing” mother-in-law.  According to the woman, the mother-in-law treats her son like a child and does not respect her as his wife. 3A wife is fed up with the way her mother-in-law treats her husband 3The mother-in-law told her son that no one can love him the way she doesCredit: Getty In a post on Reddit, the wife opened up about some of the worrisome things her mother-in-law has said to her son and about their relationship. For instance, when the wife was taking her husband to his United States Military Entrance Processing Station, his worried mother called and said, “No one can love you as much as your mom.” “So, is she saying I can’t possibly love him enough, who says that?” the irritated wife vented in her post. The wife also recalled the mother-in-law crossing the line when she told her son he should not get married ahead of their nuptials because “people aren’t meant to be monogamous.” The upset daughter-in-law wrote that...
    Real Time Host Bill Maher warned that Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe could lose the election because the Democrat says parents shouldn't be able to tell 'schools what they should teach.'  'I said this months and months ago, that the issue in coming elections is going to be what's going on in the school,' Maher said on Friday's episode of Real Time.  'Parents vote and they don't like what's going on in school. They feel like they are losing control and this became the issue in this election.'  'Trust me, this is going to be a huge barometer-kind of election because if Terry McAuliffe loses, people are gonna understand, "Yes. Oh, that's right. It is going to be about that,"' Maher continued  McAuliffe previously said he would not 'let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decisions.'  'I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach,' McAuliffe said on September 29 at a gubernatorial debate.  Maher slammed the quote, calling it 'very stupid' to of the politician to voice his support for...

    A MUM of three at 21-years-old has revealed how she is expecting her fourth child. The young mum, named Christa, said in a video that she has been pregnant each year since 2018, and is expecting to welcome the newest member of her family in December 2021. 2Christa has been trolled for having four kids at 21-years-oldCredit: Tik Tok Christa often posts mum content to her TikTok account, christacelia, where she voices her parenting opinions and her pregnancy journey.

    TikTok users are putting lemon juice in their morning coffee in hopes that it’ll contribute to weight loss, but the trend doesn’t appear to be true. "Adding lemon into coffee will not promote weight loss, just like drinking lemon water has little impact on body weight," registered dietician and weight loss author Erin Palinski-Wade told Fox News. "However, drinking more calorie-free beverages, especially warm beverages, can help to increase the feeling of fullness, which may lead to eating smaller portions and weight loss. But it isn't the lemon causing the weight loss." FROZEN HONEY HEALTH RISKS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE YOU JUMP ON THE TIKTOK FOOD TREND How did the TikTok trend come to be?

    As the GOP works to recapture the Senate majority in next year’s midterm elections, longtime Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is making it crystal clear what he thinks of former President Trump’s relitigating of his 2020 election loss to President Biden. "I do think we need to be thinking about the future and not the past," McConnell told reporters on Capitol Hill on Tuesday when asked if he was comfortable with his party’s embrace of the former president. TRUMP CALLS FOR MCCONNELL'S OUSTER AS SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER "I think the American people are focusing on this administration, what it’s doing to the country, and it’s my hope the ’22 election will be a referendum on the performance of the current administration, not a rehash of suggestions about what may have happened in 2020," the Republican from Kentucky emphasized.

    Members of the Massachusetts corrections officers union told a judge this week that they shouldn't be subject to the state's vaccine mandate, according to news reports. The Massachusetts Corrections Officers Federated Union and corrections officers Michael Mosher, Zac Gustafson, Denina Dunn, and Angela Pucci have filed suit against Gov. Charlie Baker and Carol A. Mici, commissioner of the state’s Department of Corrections, over the governor’s vaccine mandate, as reported by Boston 25 News. On Aug. 19, Baker issued an executive order requiring all Executive Department employees to provide proof they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Oct. 17 or face disciplinary action that could lead to termination. In the suit, the union and officers are asking the court to rule that the order violates the collective bargaining agreement and rights contained in the document and interferes with the officers right to deny unwanted medical treatment. In addition, the union and officers claim the order deprives them of their right to employment security, specifically the order interferes with the 14th Amendment, causing irreparable harm, as officers would be deprived of...

    Former President Donald Trump said his former aide Stephanie Grisham was 'angry and bitter' after breaking up with a fellow Trump staffer and dismissed the claims in her new tell-all because he said she was 'seldom relied upon' at the White House. He also said the book, 'I'll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw in the Trump White House' was the work of a 'radical left publisher.'  Trump tore into the ex-White House press secretary's memoir after days of her her tell-all memoir dominating headlines with damaging or embarrassing revelations about the Republican commander-in-chief and his family. 'Stephanie didn't have what it takes and that was obvious from the beginning. She became very angry and bitter after her break-up and as time went on she was seldom relied upon, or even thought about,' Trump said through a spokesperson. He was referring to former White House aide Max Miller, who's now running for Congress in Ohio.  According to the book, Trump once asked Miller if Grisham was 'good in bed.' The statement continued, 'She had big problems and we felt...
    Larry Fink, chief executive officer of BlackRock Inc.Christopher Goodney | Bloomberg | Getty Images Big companies and banks shouldn't be the only "climate police" in the world, says BlackRock Chief Executive Larry Fink, who called on governments and society to play their part in climate change. "If governments are only asking public companies to move forward, and which are mostly large companies, then we're going to be asking the large companies to be the climate police. And I don't think that's our role," he said, speaking virtually at the Ecosperity climate conference in Singapore. If the world is going to move to net-zero emissions, then "we can't just ask these public companies to move forward," said Fink. "There lies the fundamental problem and that's what I'm really worried about. I don't want to be the environmental police," he said.

    TEEN Mom fans slammed Cheyenne Floyd as "selfish" after she ripped her sister R Kyle over her plans to move across the country to be with her baby daddy. The intense conversation played out on Tuesday's episode of Teen Mom OG. 1Cheyenne was slammed as 'selfish' for not supporting her sister's plan to move During the latest episode of the MTV show, R Kyle sat down with Cheyenne to reveal her plans to relocate from California to Washington, D.C. to be closer to her son's father.

    Daniel Craig said that he doesn’t think there should be a female James Bond iteration, but hopes instead to see a woman lead her own, similar franchise.  The actor is about to debut in his final run as the legendary spy in the upcoming film "No Time To Die," and now he’s thinking about the future of the franchise and where it will go in his absence. For years, there have been calls to see a woman take on the lead of the franchise and the 53-year-old actor shared his unfavorable thoughts on the idea. "Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?" he told Radio Times in a recent interview.  The actor’s comments echo those made by producer Barbara Broccoli in an interview with Variety from last year. In response to a question about whether or not a person of color could play Bond, she noted that was certainly possible. However, changing the character's sex might be more difficult.

    As Carson Wentz undergoes testing on his injured ankles, rumors of the Indianapolis Colts going after his former backup and Super Bowl champ Nick Foles have resurfaced. During Monday morning’s First Take on ESPN, NFL Hall-of-Famer Michael Irvin claimed the Colts can’t trade for Foles because it will negatively impact the mindset of Wentz. “I don’t care if there are no more quarterbacks in the NFL, you can’t bring in Nick Foles!” Wentz was replaced by Foles twice before due to injury and was forced to watch his understudy win a Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles. After the Colts traded for Wentz in the offseason with plans of making him their quarterback of the future, bringing Foles in might trigger nerves. But Stephen A. Smith fired back with one scenario where he believes the team shouldn’t be sensitive to Wentz’s feelings: if he misses time because of Covid protocols. “There’s one condition under which you could bring Nick Foles into Indy,” Smith said on First Take. “That is if Carson Wentz were to miss games because of Covid…you get...
    PREMIER LEAGUE winners Alan Shearer and Dion Dublin couldn't believe Brighton were awarded a penalty against Leicester. Foxes defender Jannik Vestergaard was penalised for handball but was being pulled to the floor by Seagulls striker Neal Maupay. 2Jannik Vestergaard was judged to have handled the ball in the boxCredit: Rex 2But Alan Shearer believes it was a poor decision by the officialsCredit: Getty Aston Villa icon Dublin was perplexed as to how the officials didn't spot Maupay impeding Vestergaard before the handball. Watching a replay of the incident on Match of the Day, Dublin asked: "And they don't see it in the VAR booth - I don't get it!" Maupay converted the penalty and Brighton went on to secure a 2-1 win at the Amex on Sunday afternoon - their fourth Prem win of the season. A Danny Welbeck header doubled the hosts' lead before Jamie Vardy pulled one back and Leicester had two goals disallowed by VAR for offside. The result leaves Brighton fourth in the table, with the Foxes languishing down in 12th after back-to-back Prem defeats. Newcastle...
    Q: Real estate agents in our neighborhood are pricing properties hundreds of thousands below comparable sales. We live in an expensive enclave of suburban houses known for good schools. The able seller’s agent we hired to be our listing broker competently priced our home for sale. In need of updating, the property is on the busy street that feeds the neighborhood, and the price reflects this inescapable fact. After our house went up for sale, three remodeled homes in the neighborhood’s interior came on the market at or below our list price. My husband is apoplectic. We priced our home based on facts. We learned properties priced strikingly low is a rare but deliberate tactic. The goal in our area is that seller’s agents can later boast that they sold a property $250,000, $350,000 or more over list price after receiving a ridiculously high number of offers. In the meantime, our listing — not selling — appears to be overpriced based on the condition and location. Is dramatically underpricing homes by 5% to 10% based on comparable sales considered acceptable...
                      by Andrew Trunsky  California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Wednesday that Democrats should take an even more aggressive approach in fighting the coronavirus pandemic, pointing to his recent recall election win as evidence that such a strategy was popular. “We need to stiffen our spines and lean in to keeping people safe and healthy,” Newsom told CBS News in an interview. “We shouldn’t be timid in trying to protect people’s lives and mitigate the spread and transmission of this disease.” “At the end of the day,” Newsom added, “it’s not just about formal authority of setting the tone and tenor on masks — on vaccines and masks. But it’s the moral authority that we have: that we’re on the right side of history and we’re doing the right thing to save people’s lives.” Newsom just days ago cruised to victory against a Republican-led recall election, with approximately two-thirds of California voters opting to keep him in office as of Thursday morning with 75% of the results tabulated. Though Newsom was favored to win in...

    Kristen Stewart’s Retro-Inspired Power Pony Is Met Gala Goals The 7 Best Side Hustles for Parents If it had been an official that Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Greg Lewis shoved to the side on Sunday, rather than Cleveland Browns safety Ronnie Harrison, his day would have been over. That matters. And it’s precisely why the NFL has to do something about Sunday's sideline incident during Chiefs-Browns. The league protects officials from everyone. It protects coaches from players. It protects players from players. Now there’s a need for another step, making it crystal clear to every franchise that coaches can’t make the mistake of putting their hands on a player — even if they think they’re doing the right thing in a heated moment. Now, two points up front that will collectively leave both fan bases unsatisfied. (Such is life.) First, Harrison isn’t going to get the sharp end of the stick in this space. There is enough video detail to suggest (strongly) he wasn’t intentionally stepping on a Chiefs player. And it was absolutely Lewis who initiated the...
    Former President TrumpDonald TrumpHouse Democrats eye 26.5 percent corporate tax rate Iran accepts deal on nuclear monitoring, avoids censure Old South vs. the new America: What Confederate monuments say about us MORE knocked former President Bush on Monday for warning about domestic extremism during his speech marking the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, contending that the 43rd president “shouldn’t be lecturing anybody.” “So interesting to watch former President Bush, who is responsible for getting us into the quicksand of the Middle East (and then not winning!), as he lectures us that terrorists on the ‘right’ are a bigger problem than those from foreign countries that hate America, and that are pouring into our Country right now,” Trump said in a statement distributed by the Save America PAC. “If that is so, why was he willing to spend trillions of dollars and be responsible for the death of perhaps millions of people? He shouldn’t be lecturing us about anything,” he added. Trump noted that the Twin Towers “came down during his watch,” and said Bush “led a failed and uninspiring presidency.” “He shouldn’t...
    DEATH is the one event humans are programmed to avoid. So it’s no wonder we are scared of “the end” - and losing our loved ones to it. 1Death will happen to us all - so why do we fear it?Credit: Alamy But one thing is certain: it will happen to us all. Experts in palliative care believe mortality is something that’s wrongly feared because the act of dying is not actually frightening. Although we all have our own beliefs, no one truly knows what happens when you enter the “afterlife” - if there is one. However, when it comes to the process of dying, experts who witness a lot of death have some comforting words on what it may feel like. What happens when you die? Dr Kathryn Mannix, author of With The End in Mind, sat down with BBC Ideas to discuss death, and said: “In my humble opinion, dying is probably not as bad as you’re expecting.” Talking of a peaceful death, she described how a person may slowly fade away until they take their last breath....

    For decades, people have been stressing the importance of recycling. In the beginning, it was a great alternative to placing items like glass, aluminum, and plastic in the trash. But things were also a lot different 20 or even 10 years ago. As our demand for convenience items grew, so did the amount of plastic trash we generated. Bottled water, pre-packaged food, and other single-use items now line store shelves and fill our cupboards at home. We buy items with convenience in mind instead of sustainability, and it’s finally caught up with us. For many, the satisfaction of tossing something into a recycling bin helps justify the purchase of disposable products. s reinforce these thoughts by showing us how our tossed plastic bottles are turned into new products, so we don’t feel as bad about picking up that pack of bottled water at the grocery store or buying produce and other products packaged in plastic and disposable containers. As long as the packaging can be recycled, all is good, right? Well, not exactly. What Really Happens to All Our...
