    DID YOU know that you've been closing your blinds in the wrong direction this whole time? People can actually see inside your home at night if you've been closing them down. 4A carpenter revealed the proper way to close blinds 4If you close your blinds down, people can see inside Taking to social media, a professional carpenter revealed you've been closing your blinds all wrong. "Never put your blinds facing down," he began in his video. "At night, with the lights on, you can see in clear as day." And he was right. When he did the experiment himself, the inside of him was visible to those who were walking by outside. To avoid anyone peeping in on you, you'll want to have them face up instead.

    A MAN may never be able to use his penis again after an attempt to cure impotence went very wrong. The US patient and his partner had been trying to have sex, before using a bizarre method to keep him erect. 3The foam expanded in the urethra and the bladder, shown by the arrows hereCredit: Rosa Parka / Susan M.MacDonald 3Medics pulled out the foam from the man's body after the dramatic eventCredit: Rosa Parka / Susan M.MacDonald But their amorous attempts ended dramatically, when he ended up with expanding foam stuck inside his urethra - which became "anchored" in his penis. His partner had tried to use the straw in a can of weatherproofing spray to tackle his impotence. But she accidentally pressed the button on the top of the can, sending foam into the 45-year-old's member. The foam, usually used to insulate homes, then hardened inside his penis and bladder.

    An American man may never be able to use his penis again after his partner accidentally sprayed expanding foam up his urethra in a sex act gone wrong.  The 45-year-old patient had to have a new opening cut between his scrotum and his anus to urinate when the foam hardened and became 'anchored' in his penis.   Medics who treated him revealed he will only qualify for reconstructive surgery if he passes a psychiatric evaluation.  The unidentified man was struggling with impotence, and had been inserting various objects into the opening of his penis during sex to stay erect.   But things went horribly wrong during one of these sessions when the man's partner tried to use the straw of a can of insulation spray to keep him firm.  At some point the man's unidentified partner accidently hit the button on top of the can, deploying the foam inside of his penis. The foam, normally used for home insulation, hardened and he was left with several masses in the inside of his member and bladder.  A CT scan revealed the masses of...
    Parents who just months ago had their role in education publicly questioned are now being implored to enter classrooms to combat staffing shortages. "I knew when COVID hit, they started to make some exceptions for subs and I thought, 'Oh my gosh. I'm going to do it. I'm just going to try and see if I like it,'" said Kristin Kuhlman, a California mom of two who is currently serving as a long-term substitute teacher in Encinitas, California. Kuhlman earned her degree in business but said she comes from a family of educators, so when it became clear that COVID-19 was leading to teacher and substitute shortages, she signed up to fill-in.

    PRINCE Andrew is set for a court showdown with his rape accuser after his lawyers failed to get his case thrown out - but how the saga will unfold now is not exactly clear. The Duke of York, 61, has been accused by Virginia Roberts Giuffre of sexually assaulting her three times when she was a teenager. 2Prince Andrew's lawyers failed to get the case thrown out 2The duke has always denied Virginia Giuffre's allegations His lawyer argued earlier this month the case should be dismissed as Ms Giuffre had waived her right to pursue the royal by signing a confidential settlement with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. But Judge Lewis A Kaplan sensationally ruled the case can proceed, writing: "For the foregoing reasons, defendant's motion to dismiss the complaint or for a more definite statement is denied in all respects. "Given the court's limited task of ruling on this motion, nothing in this opinion or previously in these proceedings properly may be construed as indicating a view with respect to the truth of the charges or countercharges or as to...

    (CNN)The 2022 Golden Globe Awards are happening, but also not really happening. There will be a ceremony thrown by The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) on Sunday, Jan. 9, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles -- the traditional location for the event -- but it will not be televised, there will be no audience and no red carpet.Organizers attributed the scaled-down event plans to the current Covid-19 surge.

    BOSTON (CBS) — The last year, the Boston Bruins postponed the jersey retirement ceremony of Willie O’Ree until 2022, in part so that the ceremony would take place “in front of a TD Garden crowd packed with passionate Bruins fans, who can express their admiration and appreciation for Willie and create the meaningful moment he has earned throughout his incredible career.” The fans will indeed be in attendance for the ceremony on Jan. 18. But unfortunately, O’Ree himself will not be present.

    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten stated that if schools do the kind of testing that New York and Washington are doing, “we’ll probably be able to have lots of places open. But there will be pauses at different times” like there are in Cleveland and D.C. Weingarten stated, “[I]f the schools do the kind of testing that New York is trying to do, that we’re trying to push Chicago to do — I don’t know what’s going on with Mayor Lightfoot — that Washington is doing, that we’ll probably be able to have lots of places open. But there will be pauses at different times, like Cleveland is pausing for a little while. Washington, D.C. is starting two days later in order to do this.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    Ghislaine Maxwell on Wednesday was facing the grim prospect of spending the rest of her life behind bars - but she will 'feel like she's won the lottery' when she moves out of her current jail, a prison expert said. Ghislaine Maxwell is seen in a photo submitted by her lawyer in April, with a black eye - which they argued showed she was being abused in jail. Now convicted, she is awaiting sentencing and will be moved to a federal prison which will be luxurious by comparison with her current jail It is unclear in which of the 29 facilities housing female federal prisoners she will serve her sentence, which could be up to 65 years. Her lawyers will submit a prison preference during preparation of her pre-sentencing report, and one expert told DailyMail.com they thought she could opt for Danbury prison, in Connecticut - where previous inmates have included singer Lauryn Hill, reality TV star Teresa Giudice, and Piper Kerman, author of Orange is the New Black. Maxwell, who turned 60 on Christmas Day, was found guilty on...
    Fauci and Walensky insist the change is based on science demonstrating that most COVID-19 transmission happens 1-2 days prior to the onset of symptoms and 2-3 days afterward. Health experts commenting on social media criticized the lack of a testing recommendation, with one epidemiologist going so far as to call the guidance "reckless."

Hayes was clearly skeptical of the new rules, asking if there was actual science behind the change or if the CDC made a "policy judgement" based on certain "trade-offs" — like making sure that America's infrastructure doesn't shut down because essential workers are forced to quarantine for 10 days if they test positive for COVID....

    "The Five" on Thursday reacted to President Biden addressing whether he would run for reelection in 2024, and some on the panel said his response in the TV interview was poorly considered.  On ABC’s "World News Tonight" Wednesday, Biden said he would run for reelection if he was in good health. "I’m a great respecter of fate. Fate has intervened in my life many, many times. If I’m in the health I’m in now – if I’m in good health – then in fact, I would run again," he said Still, Biden's caveat did nothing to extinguish speculation about his condition and whether he will seek the reelection in 2024, the hosts of "The Five" argued. "This is the first time he's kind of caveated his answer [on if he] will … run again," former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said. "This time he had that nuance of his health. And what's fascinating is the members of his own administration refused to shut down talk of him not running." President Biden in the White House (Drew Angerer/Getty Images)...
    If you get sick with COVID-19 this winter, you might be especially worried about infecting others if you share space with elderly relatives or live in a crowded apartment to save money. Los Angeles County may be able to help: The county runs a program that offers rooms in hotels and other facilities where people can isolate themselves. The medical sheltering sites have provided rooms for people who cannot safely isolate or quarantine in their own homes after testing positive or suffering symptoms consistent with the virus. That can include unhoused people, but the program is also open to anyone else who meets the criteria, regardless of income. Still, there are a limited number of beds available, so the county is trying to ensure that they go to Angelenos who don’t have alternative ways to keep their households safe.

    As Covid outbreaks spiral through professional sports, Bob Costas believes leagues need to get to a point where it’s OK for athletes to play even after testing positive for the virus. Joining Michael Smerconish Wednesday night on CNN, the legendary sportscaster lashed out at anti-vaxxers for their “belligerent idiocy” and implored professional sports leagues to reach a 100 percent vaccination rate. “The evidence about vaccines is overwhelming,” Costas said. “The hospitalization rate, the serious illnesses, and the deaths all lean heavily in the direction of those who are unvaccinated. Now, what to do about those who are vaccinated? Especially healthy young fit athletes.” “If you were able to say that everyone, all the players, and all the people around them, staff, have been protected to the fullest extent that’s humanly possible,” Costas continued to Smerconish. “I think you could then reasonably say – and even the most pro-vax people would agree, I would hope – you could reasonably say that if a player who’s fully vaxxed and boosted, a young, healthy, fit player tests positive but is asymptomatic or has...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There was a long line of cars for a rapid testing site outside the Mall of America on Tuesday as Minnesotans try to get COVID-19 testing results before Christmas. “It’s really stressful,” Bria Skalsky, from St. Cloud, said.

    After a two-week break, reigning Jeopardy! champion Amy Schneider returns to American TV screens Monday having won 13 consecutive games, earning a whopping $536,400 and securing her place in the trivia game show’s history as the fourth-biggest winner in regular season-play, so far. Schneider even outpaced the average winnings of Ken Jennings, the former champion and now co-host of Jeopardy! by $7,000. He won 74 games in a row in 2004, a record that still stands. The software engineer is also the most successful out-transgender contestant in “Jeopardy!” history, her winning streak beginning during Trans Awareness Week. “Being trans is an important, huge foundational part of my identity and also, not,” Schneider told The Daily Beast from her home in Oakland, Calif. “I’m not going on Jeopardy! to be trans on Jeopardy! I’m going on Jeopardy! to try to win some money.” Schneider, 42, said competing on Jeopardy! is the culmination of a decades-long dream which had its origins in 1984, watching legendary host Alex Trebek launch a revival of the challenging quiz show with her family, when...
    JaruekChairak | iStock | Getty Images Amid all the worrisome news about the omicron variant, there one's good development: Soon most Americans should be able to pick up at-home Covid tests for free. The Biden administration said earlier this month that those with private health insurance can request reimbursement from their plans for these takeaway tests, which usually run from around $15 to $40. It's uncertain when the new coverage starts, and tests you've bought in the past and before the holidays probably won't qualify for repayment, said Lindsey Dawson, an associate director at the Kaiser Family Foundation.

    A couple of liberal NBC anchors had some harsh words for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., after her comments about members of Congress trading stocks.  On Wednesday, a reporter asked Pelosi whether lawmakers and their spouses should be banned form trading individual stocks while in office after a report detailed several conflicting stock deals with several members of Congress.

    Some of the rapid at-home Covid tests Americans use can not pick up the new Omicron variant, Dr Anthony Fauci, America's top infectious disease expert, said. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease, told the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation that his team currently is investigating available rapid tests to determine which are not as accurate for the new strain, with mixed results.  He does note that PCR tests, often considered the 'gold standard' for Covid testing, as still accurate for Omicron, and that he believes a majority of rapid tests can accurately detect the variant. While the prospect of inaccurate tests is worrying, it would not affect official sequencing of the variant.  The U.S. only sequences PCR positive tests - which in itself is concerning to some officials - so there are no tests that would otherwise be included in official figures that are being missed. The highly infectious variant being able to evade these tests is still concerning, though, as many use them before attending large events, and in some localities a recent...
    An elderly Kentucky couple, married for 56 years, died holding hands after devastating tornadoes struck last week, according to family members. Billy and Judy Miller were two of 11 victims killed as storms tore through Muhlenberg County, northwest of Bowling Green in western Kentucky late Friday night.

    "The problem with any good reporters left at Fox is that the prime time people contradict everything they say," she continued. "So you can report something like 'COVID is real' or 'the election wasn’t stolen,' but it’s just going to be contradicted in prime time. And that just makes you wonder what else are you being told as a Fox viewer that these people don’t even believe in?" Lemon asked Stelter why the White House would "allow Fox to pretend in the briefing room like they're a real news organization?" Stelter, of course, piled on in the anti-Fox rhetoric. He, too, was flummoxed that Fox was allowed in and indicated that the only reason to let the outlet that is throttling CNN in the ratings into the building for briefing is because historically speaking, the White House has always let in a wide swath of voices in come to briefings, even "cranks." He went on so say that Fox "leans so far from reality that it's imperiled the country." Lemon added, "It's obvious they don't care about the truth."...

There are growing fears of further resections after Christmas as Omicron is expected to peak in January, with New Year parties in grave doubt. 1Pubs and restaurants could be forced to restrict numbers in the coming weeksCredit: Alamy A government source said: “You will be able to see your family at Christmas, but at this rate, you might not be able to do it in a pub.

    In this article ITA gamer plays on Sony's Playstation 5 console at his home in Seoul.Yelim Lee | AFP via Getty ImagesThe global chip shortage has been rumbling on all year and still hasn't gone away. But what does that mean for Christmas? Will some presents be harder to get hold of or more expensive? That depends on what you're after and how late you leave your Christmas shopping. Semiconductors are beneath the hood of an increasing number of products — from cars and e-bikes to washing machines and toothbrushes. Many of these chips are in short supply as the Covid pandemic has led to supply chain bottlenecks and increased demand. Alan Priestley, a semiconductor analyst at research firm Gartner, told CNBC that the chip shortage is bound to have some impact on Christmas. "We may find that some things that have been readily available in the past may not be readily available now," he said, adding that instant gratification can no longer be found from the usual shopping services. "We're all used to Amazon Prime: hit the button, it's...
    Italy has brought in tougher restrictions for unvaccinated people as the holidays draw near, excluding them from indoor restaurants, theatres and museums to reduce the spread of coronavirus and encourage vaccine skeptics to get their jabs. Only those who have the 'Super Green Pass', which requires Italians to be double-jabbed rather than providing a negative Covid test result, will be able to fully participate in public life from Monday. Italian police will be checking will be checking whether those visiting indoor restaurants, bars, concerts, sports events, theatres and public events, have the 'super' green health pass until January 15. The restrictions follow a steady rise of Covid cases in Italy for the past six weeks, with 15,021 infections recorded on Sunday, and a concern about the new Omicron variant which is believed to be more transmissible than the Delta strain.  Elsewhere in Europe, leaders have rushed in a raft of new lockdown measures and travel bans amid panic over rising cases and the arrival of the Omicron variant.  Germany has announced it will lock down its unvaccinated citizens and ban them from...

    Anyone who struggles with insomnia knows the hugely detrimental affect it can have on daily life.  Causes can include physical conditions like long-term pain, lifestyle changes like shift patterns, mental health conditions like depression or anxiety, or a combination of factors.  One study found 36 per cent of UK adults struggle to get to sleep at least on a weekly basis. Nearly half of British adults have trouble falling asleep at least once a month.  Some experts champion a psychotherapeutic technique called 'paradoxical intention', which encourages an individual to engage in his or her most feared behavior.

    Former President Trump's lawyers asked a U.S. federal appeals court on Tuesday to prevent records of his conversations and actions in the run up to the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol being handed to congressional investigators.  But they immediately ran into skeptical questions from a panel of three judges, who wanted to know why a former president got to overrule the wishes of an incumbent.  'Is there a circumstance in which the former president ever gets to make this kind of call, and why should he under these circumstances?' Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, seen as a future Supreme Court nominee for President Biden, asked during the hearing. She said the legislative history showed that in a dispute between incumbent and former president, the incumbent 'gets to decide.' A House investigative committee demanded documents from the National Archives - including visitor logs, phone records and written communications - in August.  Biden has waived the right of executive privilege over hundreds of pages. The result has been a legal back and forth over whether the records are privileged and whether the House...
    TIGER WOODS is determined to be at St Andrews for the 150th Open next year - even though his golf is currently limited to a “little hit and a giggle” Woods knows he could not hope to compete with the world’s best golfers by next July, as his shattered leg will still not be strong enough for him to be anywhere near his best. 2Woods is determined to compete at St Andrews next yearCredit: Reuters 2However, Woods faces an uphill battle to get fit as his leg is still restricted to minimal movementCredit: AP But he says just returning to the home of golf would be another reminder of just how lucky he was to survive his 85 mph car crash in February.

Those are two crucial things. ”I'm very grateful that someone upstairs was taking care of me, that I'm able to not only be here but also to walk without a prosthesis. “I’ve...
    Russia is believed to be developing a special Artificial Intelligence (AI) software to predict and then prevent riots and protests in the latest part of a Kremlin crackdown on dissent. The technology will use machine learning to carry out a 'multi-factor, comprehensive analysis of the likelihood of riots and unauthorised public events' taking place and then alerts security services to them. The country's Emergency Situations Ministry is planning to have the technology in place in 2022, according to the Kommersant news website. The software will also analyse news, social media, CCTV and public transport data to foresee upcoming riots, and has drawn comparisons to the Tom Cruise film Minority Report.

Woods spoke of his progress and remaining ambitions in the sport, one week after posting a short clip on his official Twitter account showing him hitting balls on a practice range.

    IGLS, Austria (AP) — China won. So did Britain. So did Germany. And with that, the World Cup skeleton circuit had a race unlike any other in its history. Geng Wenqiang gave China its first World Cup skeleton win on Friday — part of a historic three-way tie for the top spot. Geng, Britain’s Matt Weston and Germany’s Christopher Grotheer all finished two runs in 1 minute, 46.04 seconds. There had never been a three-way tie for the win in any World Cup skeleton race since the sport was added to the circuit in 1986. “It’s the best feeling,” Weston said. Weston was Britain’s first World Cup men’s skeleton race winner since Kristian Bromley in January 2008. Grotheer is the two-time defending world champion, though this was only the second World Cup race win of his career. And Geng’s first win came in his 20th career World Cup start, plus ensured that he’ll be considered a medal favorite at the Beijing Olympics in February. The Chinese have never been a major player in the sliding sports, which have traditionally been...

    WELCOME Ralf Rangnick, the new man at the wheel, and the man chosen to keep the club challenging for a top four spot, and in the Champions League, between now and May.

Nicknamed 'The Professor', he was one of the pioneers of Gegenpressing, a style of play where teams immediately press the opposition after losing possession of the ball and one we have seen in Liverpool’s play since Jurgen Klopp took over. Is it a sign then that United are finally taking a step towards modern day football? My choice would have been to pursue Mauricio Pochettino or Erik ten Hag NOW, but if that just wasn’t to be, Rangnick is probably...

Ministers have welcomed the move, part of a fan-led review headed by ex-sports minister Tracey Crouch. She said a “small scale and limited pilot” on the sale of alcohol “in sight of the pitch” would help struggling clubs rake in extra cash. Ms Crouch added yesterday: “This is about the financial sustainability of the lowest parts of the league — such a small change would make a huge difference.” Research suggests an average League Two club loses around £184,000 a season by not being able to sell booze to fans watching matches.

    Vince Biegel took a circuitous route to land back on the Miami Dolphins’ active roster this week ahead of Sunday’s home game against the Carolina Panthers. After missing the entire 2020 season with a torn Achilles, the outside linebacker who contributed significantly in 2019 suffered a calf injury in training camp. He was released with an injury settlement in early September, freeing him up to join another team. But Biegel found himself re-signing for a spot back on the Dolphins’ practice squad in October and was activated for two games this season. With fellow outside linebacker Brennan Scarlett placed on injured reserve following Sunday’s win at the New York Jets, Biegel was the obvious choice to replace him on the team’s 53-man roster. “I think the game of football is a journey and sometimes the gift is the struggle,” said Biegel on Wednesday. “It’s been quite a journey this year, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m just thankful to be back with a great organization like the Dolphins and help this team come out...
    Vince Biegel took a circuitous route to land back on the Miami Dolphins’ active roster this week ahead of the team’s Sunday home game against the Carolina Panthers. Already missing the entire 2020 season with a torn Achilles, the outside linebacker that contributed significantly in 2019 was injured with a calf strain in training camp this year. He was released with an injury settlement in early September, freeing him up to join another team. Biegel found himself signing back onto the Dolphins’ practice squad in October, elevated for two different games and, with fellow outside linebacker Brennan Scarlett placed on injured reserve following Sunday’s win at the New York Jets, Biegel was the natural replacement, signed for good to the 53-man roster. “I think the game of football is a journey and sometimes the gift is the struggle,” said Biegel on Wednesday. “It’s been quite a journey this year, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m just thankful to be back with a great organization like the Dolphins and help this team come out and win ball games.”...

Terry admits he has been watching both players a lot recently as he studies to become a manager, calling both ‘legends’ of the game.

    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – Florida Power & Light should be able to collect an additional $810 million from customers next year because of higher-than-expected natural gas costs, staff members of the state Public Service Commission recommended Tuesday. Florida utilities are generally allowed to pass through costs to customers for fuel used at power plants. Utilities each year file projected fuel costs that regulators then use to determine how much will be charged to customers in the subsequent year. READ MORE: Groveland Four Officially Cleared Of 1949 Rape Of White WomanFPL made such a filing Sept. 3, with regulators approving it early this month. But the utility on Nov. 9 requested what is known as a “mid-course correction,” a sort of add-on to what was approved earlier. The $810 million sought by FPL represents gas costs above projections for the final months of this year and for 2022. The commission is scheduled to take up the request and the staff recommendation during a Dec. 7 meeting. READ MORE: Don't Be A Turkey: AAA Activates 'Tow to Go'...
