    Breaking down our PGA Tour expert picks and best bets for The American Express as we head to Palm Springs, California for a wild three-course tournament.  We’re heading to Palm Springs and La Quinta, California this week for The American Express, one of the more unique tournaments on the PGA Tour. We’ll have the tournament played across three courses (PGA West Stadium Course, La Quinta Country Club, PGA West Nicklaus Tournament Course) with a 54-hole cut. Before we get into breaking this tournament, which is headlined with Jon Rahm, Patrick Cantlay, Scottie Scheffler, Matthew Wolff, Tony Finau and Rickie Fowler in the field, let’s look back at the Sony Open last week. We weren’t on Hideki Matsuyama, unfortunately, as he picked up the win and our Top 10 pick of Webb Simpson missed. With that said, Corey Conners as the One and Done netted $189,375, which is solid return. We also cashed our two straight bets with Conners over Talor Gooch (-120) and Russell Henley for a Top 20 (+150), the latter of which cashed with ease as he was...

    Want to add pizzazz to G&T hour? Consider swapping out your old faithful for one of the best pink gins. Pink gins are made with juniper and other botanicals, just like regular gins. What’s different is that they have a rosy hue and another wow-factor element: fruit flavour. There’s an old-school cocktail called Pink Gin, but the modern trend is very different. It gathered steam with the launch of Pinkster gin back in 2013, when founder Stephen Marsh worked out that raspberries go great with juniper. He started soaking them in booze, with scrummy, colourful results. Today, there are loads of different pink gins out there, infused with everything from rhubarb to pink peppercorns and even pinot noir grapes. If it’s pink and fruity, there’s probably a gin out there made with it. If you aren’t sure you like gin, pink gin is a game-changer. Most are slightly sweeter than traditional gins, and the juicy fruit offsets the piney (sometimes polarising) juniper taste. When mixed with tonic, the best pink gins are irresistible. Because of its fruity profile, many people...
    LIONEL MESSI’S bizarre votes for the 2021 Fifa Best Men's Player Award have been revealed as he missed out on it to Robert Lewandowski. And his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo, who received a special gong after becoming the all-time leading international goalscorer, snubbed the Paris Saint-Germain man as he backed the winner in his picks. 4Lionel Messi's bizarre votes for Fifa Best Player of the Year have been revealedCredit: AFP 4Here's how the big-hitters votedCredit: The Sun Bayern Munich striker Lewandowski scooped the prize after scoring 69 goals in all competitions over the last calendar year. Those strikes helped the German side to both the Bundesliga title and DFL Supercup. He pipped fellow final candidates Messi and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah to award as he lifted it for the second-successive time. As always, there were a number of controversial and strange choices as the three choices made by international managers and captains from around the globe were revealed. And Messi’s were among them to be the most-discussed. The Argentina superstar, 34, helped his country to Copa America success but it was...
    A Holocaust survivor who spent four months at Auschwitz has celebrated becoming a great-grandmother for the 35th time.   Lily Ebert, 98, who grew up in Hungary, was liberated by American soldiers in April 1945 when she was 20 and, some 77 years later, says babies are the 'best revenge against the Nazis'.  She said: 'For anybody to achieve this - to be a great-grandmother - is something special, but how much more for me as a Holocaust survivor... it is very special. 'I never thought I would achieve this. I had to survive first of all and then to achieve this age... (the Nazis) wanted to kill us and we showed (them) that they could not.'  Lily Ebert, 98, who spent four months at Auschwitz has celebrated becoming a great-grandmother for the 35th time.

    Niesha Harris-Brazell, 16, was fatally shot during an apparently staged robbery at the Burger King she was working at on January 2 A teenager who was working the drive-thru at a Milwaukee Burger King when she was shot and killed in an apparent robbery may have staged the incident with her best friend and her best friend's father, court documents allege. Niesha Harris-Brazell, 16, was working a shift with her best friend, Mariah Edwards, on January 2, when she was found fatally shot inside the fast-food joint. Just a few minutes prior, surveillance footage caught a man in a red hoodie and a facemask waving a pistol around and demanding money as Harris-Brazell frantically took money out of the cash register and cried for help. Investigators initially believed the man in the red hoodie who had demanded the cash shot and killed the 16-year-old, but court documents obtained by FOX 6 News revealed that a closer look at the video showed the man never fired the gun. Instead, another camera inside the restaurant revealed that the shot was fired from...

    DESPITE common misconceptions, cats can be gentle, sociable and loyal, just like dogs. They make a great companion for people who are working full-time or live in a flat - so here are the perfect cat breeds to keep as pets. 1Siamese cats are a great choice for people looking for an active, loyal feline companionCredit: Getty What are the best breeds for cats for pets?

              by Josh Hammer   The recent arrival of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has, for far too many, reset the clock of our timeline for a return to societal normalcy. Public health authorities in many countries reimposed loosened travel restrictions that had lapsed. Washington, D.C., under the mayorship of Muriel Bowser, passed a draconian private-sector vaccination mandate, the likes of which had previously only passed muster in iconic deep-blue metropolises such as New York City. The vacillating mandarins who constitute the “public health” apparatus in this country, such as Lord-Emperor Anthony Fauci, quickly began fearmongering about the need to avoid large gatherings for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Restaurants and bars across the country that had shelved mask mandates suddenly deemed it necessary to make customers mask up again. The sober reality, as should be obvious as we approach the two-year anniversary of “15 Days to Slow the Spread,” is that COVID-19 is simply not going anywhere; much like influenza or the common cold, it is now something humanity is simply going to have to deal with. Furthermore, at this...
    Though the phrasing of “defund the police” has proven to be more than a little divisive among Democrats and progressives, many of us do agree with core sentiments in the movement. Even simply reforming police departments could make a huge difference in quality of life, public health, and community dynamics in this nation. One of those ideas, for example, involves decreasing (or abolishing) the involvement of armed law enforcement officers when it comes to helping people who may be experiencing a mental health crisis. This could involve having a social worker or mental health expert on the scene instead, for instance, or even the presence of a police officer who isn’t armed. For people of color, this difference could literally be lifesaving. As reported by Michigan Radio, an exciting proposal related to mental health and policing is in the works. Milton Dohoney, who serves as the Interim City Manager for Ann Arbor, Michigan, recently shared that even folks in the police department have acknowledged that mental health crises (in addition to other scenarios, like issues between neighbors and folks who...

    If you aren’t familiar with Veganuary, allow me to fill you in: Veganuary is a month-long challenge that encourages people all around the world to try adopting a vegan and plant-forward lifestyle. There are a slew of reasons why many people choose to switch to a vegan diet, including the documented health benefits (reduced inflation and improved digestion just to name a select few), animal rights, and minimizing the environmental impact of our diets. In fact, some researchers at the University of Oxford found that eliminating meat and dairy products from one's diet could significantly help reduce the individual's carbon footprint. Back in the day (even just five years ago, in fact), following a plant-based lifestyle wasn't exactly easy if you wanted to eat our at restaurants find vegan snacks that didn't actually taste like, well, plants. Fortunately, in recent years, a plethora of new plant-based foods have popped up on grocery store shelves, restaurants, and online retailers, so eating vegan has never been easier or more fun. Even if you aren't ready to commit to going entirely...

    Workers transport a shipment of the Cuban Soberana Plus vaccine against the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, to be donated by the Cuban government to Syria, at Jose Marti International Airport in Havana, on January 7, 2022.YAMIL LAGE | AFP | Getty Images Cuba has vaccinated a greater percentage of its population against Covid-19 than almost all the world's largest and richest nations. In fact, only the oil-rich United Arab Emirates boasts a stronger vaccination record. The tiny Communist-run Caribbean island has achieved this milestone by producing its own Covid vaccine, even as it struggles to keep supermarket shelves stocked amid a decades-old U.S. trade embargo. "It is an incredible feat," Helen Yaffe, a Cuba expert and lecturer in economic and social history at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, told CNBC via telephone. "Those of us who have studied biotech aren't surprised in that sense, because it has not just come out of the blue. It is the product of a conscious government policy of state investment in the sector, in both public health and in medical science." To date, around...
    Dazzne The quality of your video streams depends on your lighting. If you’re just getting into streaming, you’ve probably already learned that upgrading from your laptop’s stock webcam to a dedicated webcam can dramatically enhance the quality of your video. Likewise, you might have even moved to a  standalone streaming microphone. But don’t overlook a critical ingredient: Lighting. Setting up lighting might feel excessive or decadent, especially if you are not a professional streamer, but the reality is that lighting can be an essential tool for having a successful broadcast. Lighting can make you look more professional and increase your engagement with your audience. But don’t think you need to spend a lot of money on lighting, either. You might need just one or two lights — like a desktop unit that provides a key light and perhaps a secondary fill light. Don’t be intimidated: They’re easy to set up and a little experimentation will have you making great-looking video in no time. Here are some excellent lighting kits for streaming, and scroll down to the end of...
    Hillary Clinton may be the 'best option' to lead Democrats -- and likely face down Donald Trump -- in 2024, two Democrat operatives said on Tuesday. Just a year into Joe Biden's presidency, his and Kamala Harris' low popularity and back-to-back domestic and foreign crises has Democrats searching for a viable presidential candidate. That could set the stage for the former Secretary of State's political comeback, Douglas E. Schoen and Andrew Stein predict in a piece for the Wall Street Journal. It all depends on how Democrats perform in this year's midterm elections, they write. 'Given the likelihood that Democrats will lose control of Congress in 2022, we can anticipate that Mrs. Clinton will begin shortly after the midterms to position herself as an experienced candidate capable of leading Democrats on a new and more successful path,' the experts claim.  Clinton's deep roots in Washington, DC as a First Lady, then US Senator, then Secretary of State alienated her to voters who craved an 'outsider' to shake up the swamp in 2016, part of the reason for her stunning loss to...

    GOOD & GRACIOUS Lift chairs can allow you, or someone you love, to enjoy enhanced relaxation, better naps, and more comfortable recovery after medical procedures, but the beauty of these recliners relies on their powered tilting mechanism that pushes the entire chair up from its base and assists the user to reach either standing or sitting positions without straining their hips, back, or arms.

Nicole, 54, plays Lucille Ball in the film and showcases her relationship with husband Desi Arnaz.

The front doors are revolving on Saturday night as customers arrive, masked, to pick up their to-go orders.

    IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– While the school district itself is small in comparison to the majority of Colorado, Clear Creek County prides itself on being able to safely keep kids in school throughout most of the pandemic so far. (credit: CBS) “That’s thanks to layers on layers of safety measures,” Karen Quanbeck, superintendent of Clear Creek School District explained. The district has kept a mask mandate in place even through this fall when some schools decided to drop theirs. It offer COVID testing for students with parent permission and keeps air purifiers in each classroom. There is also regular mandatory COVID tests for athletes in the higher grade levels. Still, after a sobering conversation with the Clear Creek County Health Department, teachers are now preparing for the possibility they will need to switch over to remote learning soon.

    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner dinged controversial Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo on Monday night after Ladapo made some remarks about Covid-19 testing. In October, Ladapo raised doubt about Covid vaccines, stating, “We don’t know all there is to know.” “We’re going to be working to unwind the, sort of, testing psychology that our federal leadership has managed to – unfortunately – get most of the country in over the last two years,” said Ladapo at a press conference on Monday. “We need to unwind this testing, sort of, planning on living one’s life around testing. Without it, we’re gonna be sort of stuck in the same cycle.” Erin Burnett pointed out Ladapo’s comments reflect many people’s frustration with various Covid protocols. “Does he have a point?” she asked. “And if not, why?” “No,” replied Reiner. “In fact, it’s hard to believe those comments came from the surgeon general of one of the largest states in this country. And his words echo what the former president of the United States Donald Trump said in June of 2020 when he...

    Getty Denny Hamlin (left) has the chance to win his fourth Daytona 500. The Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway is only seven weeks away, and there are countless predictions about who will win the NASCAR Cup Series Crown Jewel race. There is no clear answer, but recent history and overall stats both indicate that a veteran will be the best option. Per Racing Reference, there are 14 active, full-time drivers that have a win at Daytona International Speedway — split between the Daytona 500 and the Coke Zero Sugar 400 — that will surely compete in the Cup Series owner. Ryan Newman also has a win, but he does not have a set schedule for the 2022 season. Of these drivers, Denny Hamlin has the most wins with three trips to Victory Lane since the 2016 season. He also has a long run of consistency with three other top-five finishes. His most recent Daytona 500 start resulted in a fifth-place finish while Michael McDowell won.

    WHAT IS the first thing you grab when you're about to pop some bubbly? A flout, right? Well, turns out, that's the wrong glass to use. 3Flouts are actually not the right glass to useCredit: Getty 3Tulip glasses are the bestCredit: Getty According to wine experts, champagne is best enjoyed in a tulip glass rather than a flout. The tulip glass is "tall enough to allow the bubbles and aromas to develop to the full," according to Comite Champagne. Flouts are often too thin and will immediately spill over if your champagne has too much effervescence. But obviously, not everyone has access to a variety of wine glasses, so you can use a white wine glass with a stem instead. The opening of the white wine glass is wide enough so that the foam doesn't spill over and the aroma of the drink can develop better. But if you rather JUST drink champagne for the fun of it, drink it out a mug if you want! Most read in LifestyleNEED EVIDENCE Prince Andrew must prove he...

    THE new year is just days away and some are wondering how they should manage their finances in 2022.  A personal finance expert, who goes by the username BreakYourBudget on TikTok, has broken down how you should organize your money in 2022. 2Personal finance expert BreakYourBudget breaks down how you should allocate your paycheck 2You'll want to use this as guidance and adjust based on your current financial situation Once you get paid, 5% or a little more should go into a retirement account, while the remaining of the funds enter a checking account, the TikToker said in a 39-second video clip. She then divides the checking account into three different branches of expenses. This first branch includes essentials, rent, utilities, insurance, and groceries, which in a “perfect world” would consist of 50% of your income, according to the TikToker.

The last category is lifestyle, which consists of all other extra expenses such as shopping, going out, and other fun. “If you’re focusing on...

Amid the latest, delta and omicron waves of Covid-19 infections, you might think more people than usual would be ringing in the new year at home, yet financial website WalletHub claims that's not the case.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — As COVID- 19 cases surge and as the highly contagious Omicron variant becomes more prevalent in Los Angeles County the great mask debate has sparked once again. “I’ve actually switched to surgical masks as of the last three months,” said infectious disease specialist Dr. Monica Gandhi. READ MORE: Huntington Beach Police Involved In Shooting In Sunset BeachGandhi has been at the front lines since the beginning of the pandemic, helping combat the rising cases. She recently decided to change up her mask strategy amid this recent winter surge. Gandhi points out that research indicates that medical-grade paper masks have a distinct advantage over cloth masks. “Surgical masks are made of polypropylene material,” she said. “They’re made out that because a weave of polypropylene is negatively charged.” Since both the polypropylene material and viruses are negatively charged they repel each other like magnets. “What polypropylene will do is make the virus bounce off it because it doesn’t like the negative charge,” she added.

    Experts are calling 2021 “the year of school choice,” as 19 states enacted and expanded programs that provide students with funding for their education as opposed to government schools. National Director of Research at the American Federation for Children Corey DeAngelis told the Daily Caller that school choice advocates were awakened amid the COVID-19 pandemic and virtual learning. DeAngelis claims that teacher unions — many of which pushed for continued school closures — are to thank for the expansion of school choice programs. “Teachers unions overplayed their hand, showed their true colors, and awakened a sleeping giant: parents. 2021 is the year of school choice,” DeAngelis said. “We should thank [American Federation of Teachers President] Randi Weingarten and her teacher union allies for inadvertently doing more to advance school choice this past year and a half more than anyone could have ever imagined.” Here are the top 10 best states for school choice programs in 2021: 10.

    Two women who have been sending the same Christmas card back and forth for more than 40 years have revealed how the sweet holiday tradition kept them in each other's lives for decades, despite moving away from one another and growing apart.  Laurie Matthews, 60, first sent the card to her friend Karen Petillo, 64, in 1980, but forgot to sign it or include her return address on the envelope. When a confused Karen discovered that Laurie was her anonymous well-wisher, she joked about sending it back to her the next Christmas - and she did. Karen, in New Jersey, and Laurie, in Florida, have continued to send the same Christmas card back and forth to each other every time the holiday rolled around, even when they had otherwise stopped speaking to one another.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — A wait list for Christmas Eve mass? In the age of Omicron. That’s a reality at one North Side church in Chicago, and they’re not the only ones taking precautions. READ MORE: Illinois State Sen. Kimberly Lightford And Husband Carjacked In BroadviewCBS 2’s Tim McNicholas reports from St. Andrew in Roscoe Village on what churches are doing this year. The key word this year is options. Many churches want to give people choices: in person or online, social distanced or full capacity. One church even offers outside prayer services this week for people who aren’t ready to worship inside. But it turns out, many are ready and signed up. Christmas lights and nativity scenes are far from the only preparations at St. Andrew. “It’s a way of keeping social distance for all of our parishioners.” The church’s pastoral associate David Heimann said every other pew will stay roped off on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. A reservation is required to attend mass and now Christmas Eve is booked full. There is a waitlist in case people cancel....
    (CNN)It's not Christmas if there isn't a highly coveted toy that rises above the rest. And it's not the most-wanted toy of the year if the attempt to purchase it doesn't drive consumers absolutely bonkers. We've chosen two of the most popular toys from each decade since the 1950s to wax nostalgic about -- the toys you don't forget since the moment you unwrap them or, if you're a parent, the toys you spent the wee morning hours waiting in line for, squaring off against other customers to get their hands on.
