    All the 49ers do is win. And no one is quite sure how to explain it. Yes, this team has a great defense, and they’re as tough as a microwaved steak, but it still defies logic how San Francisco is playing in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. The truth is that the Niners have been the beneficiaries of some luck over these last couple of weeks. Don’t hold that against them — all championship runs require a bit of good fortune. But with a Super Bowl berth on the line, the Niners can’t go into Sunday’s third showdown of the season with the Rams with only the hope that fortune is still in their favor. “How is this happening?” isn’t the question that needs to be answered heading into that game. No, the only question that should be asked of the Niners is straightforward: “Is the best yet to come?” If it is, San Francisco will be playing in Super Bowl LVI in the very same stadium they’ll play in on Sunday.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Following two back-to-back storms, the entire Chicago area has been left under several inches of snow and ice. As CBS 2 meteorologist Tammie Souza explains, arctic air will settle across the region tonight plunging us to near zero with the coldest temperatures since last February. READ MORE: Chicago Weather: A Deep Freeze Takes Effect Overnight For The Chicago AreaBlack ice becomes the problem on sidewalks, stairs, driveway and porches and with temperatures not expected to go above freezing for the next seven days that ice becomes dangerous if not treated. Applying a thin layer of “Ice Melt” pellets or flakes is the best way to minimize the ice threat. What type of Ice Melt depends on the air temperature. The most commonly used melt is rock salt, better known as sodium chloride. One pound can melt up to 46 pounds of ice. Unfortunately it is only effective to about 20 degrees F and stops working below that temperature. With our temperatures expected to be at or below zero the next few nights there are other options that...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Donna Barba Higuera’s “The Last Cuentista,” a post-apocalyptic tale of a young girl who must preserve the memory of Earth’s history, has won the John Newbery Medal for the year’s best children’s book. Another story of memory was awarded the Randolph Caldecott Medal for outstanding children’s picture book. ”Watercress,” in which a Chinese American girl learns about her heritage, was illustrated by Jason Chin and written by Andrea Wang. The Newbery and Caldecott medals were part of the Youth Media Awards announced Monday by the American Library Association. Higuera also received a Pura Belpré Award, which honors Latinx writers and illustrators, for best author, while “Watercress” was also named the year’s outstanding Asian/Pacific American picture book. Malinda Lo’s “Last Night at the Telegraph Club,” winner last fall of the National Book Award for young people’s literature, received the Asian/Pacific American Award for Youth Literature. A book illustrated by the beloved artist Floyd Cooper, who died last year, was a finalist for the Caldecott prize and received Coretta Scott King awards for the year’s...

I was raised on the beautiful two-man synergies of John Stockton and Karl Malone, Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp, and Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire. There’s something magical about that connection between a creator and a finisher, working in harmony to manipulate space and open a scoring opportunity in the middle of the defense. There might not be any legendary, hall-of-fame connections working in the NBA right now but here are the best and most prolific assist combinations of the 2021-22 season so far. 5.

    “I made clothes because I was looking for something that didn’t exist. I had to create my own world.” What a world it was that fashion designer Thierry Mugler created. The acclaimed French fashion designer, who was famous for his fragrances and Demi Moore’s not-so-little black dress from Indecent Proposal, died today at the age of 73. The cause of death is not immediately known. His death was announced via his team by sharing a black square to his personal Instagram profile page with the caption: "We are devastated to announce the passing of Mr Manfred Thierry Mugler on Sunday January 23rd 2022. May his soul Rest In Peace.” Mugler entered the fashion scene in the 1970s. In the 1980s when he hit the Paris catwalks for the first time, his PVC ensembles adorned by models who seemed like intergalactic dominatrixes were not received favorably. At the time, the thought of anything made from PVC being considered luxury or high-fashion was blasphemy. Despite the negative reviews from fashion critics, Mugler pushed on and became one of the most recognizable names...
    The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs are leading an offensive onslaught in their AFC divisional round matchup, but the security team at Arrowhead Stadium is putting on a hell of a defensive performance.

    The urge to make fun of Björk’s swan dress was so immediate that by the time the 2001 Oscar ceremony was underway the fowl creation had made its way into host Steve Martin’s schtick. After the Icelandic singer took the stage to perform “I’ve Seen it All,” the devastating song about a woman with a degenerative eye disease from Lars von Trier’s Dancer in the Dark for which she was nominated, Martin quipped: “I was going to wear my swan, but to me they are so last year.” Later that year, Ellen DeGeneres came out on the Emmys stage wearing a replica of the garment designed by Marjan Pejoski. “I guess this is business casual,” she said to laughs. The swan dress with its tutu and his bosom-grazing plush animal is arguably the most mocked red carpet look of this century. It’s been mimicked in White Chicks and lampooned on 30 Rock.

    Social distancing rules and self-quarantines look like they are going to be here for a while, which means it’s time to double down on our plants. Why? Because plants are the therapeutic relief we need during this time of adversity and uncertainty; working 24/7 to keep us mentally and physically healthier. Just the presence of plants in your environment can reduce feelings of anxiety and depression by 37% and 58% respectively, (New University of Technology in Sydney) and considering that most of us will be working from home for the foreseeable future, plants in our workspaces can boost our creativity and productivity by as much as 15% (Human Spaces Report). Plants are the friends we need more than ever, but it’s important to remember that we were already spending most of our time indoors. It is time to bring the outside in, and adding plants in our homes can help satisfy this human need and prevent us from going stir crazy. If you are new to plant parenthood and are looking for a green companion (or twelve), here are a...

    (CNN)Three large new studies from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention highlight the importance of getting a booster shot to provide the best protection against the Omicron coronavirus variant.This is the first real-life data to examine the effect of boosters against Omicron, which now accounts for more than 99% of coronavirus cases in the United States. The studies, released Friday, raise the question of whether people with just two vaccine doses should still be considered fully vaccinated."I think we have to redefine fully vaccinated as three doses," said Dr. William Schaffner, a longtime CDC vaccine adviser who was not involved with the studies. Omicron cases dip in the US overall, but the wave is far from over in many parts of the countryThe studies have an enormous scope, involving millions of cases, hundreds of thousands of visits to emergency departments and urgent care centers, and tens of thousands of hospitalizations among adults. Getting boosted was 90% effective at preventing hospitalizations during a period in December and January when Omicron was the dominant variant, according to a CDC...

    Getty Dana White attends the GQ Australia Men of The Year Awards at The Star on November 14, 2018 in Sydney, Australia. UFC president Dana White recently revealed who he believes are the three best mixed martial artists ever. While appearing on the “The Dave Portnoy Show” during the UFC 270 fight week, the Barstool Sports founder asked the UFC president for his picks. According to White, the three greatest fighters ever are former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, ex-UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva and former UFC middleweight and welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. White didn’t rank the fighters from first to third, and he also gave a nod to reigning 170-pound champion Kamaru Usman. “You’d have to go: Anderson Silva, ‘GSP,’ Jones,” White said. “Usman is getting up there too.” Getty(Clockwise, starting at the top left): Georges St-Pierre, Jon Jones & Anderson Silva.

    Getty Quarterback Russell Wilson passes. The Denver Broncos will head into this offseason looking to make a big splash at the quarterback position, and the odds may be in their favor. According to Odds Shark, Bovada gave the Broncos the second-best odds (+700) of being Russell Wilson’s team next season. Wilson’s current team, the Seattle Seahawks, remains the favorite (-650). Behind the Broncos are the Pittsburgh Steelers (+850), Las Vegas Raiders (+850), Chicago Bears (+850), and New Orleans Saints (+900). Rumors have surrounded Wilson for some time now. A year ago, there were rumblings that Wilson wanted out of Seattle, but he eventually denied requesting a trade prior to the season. After an underwhelming season for the Seahawks, Wilson may be more motivated to change teams. In December, Jordan Schultz reported that Wilson would consider waiving his no-trade clause for the Broncos, Saints, and New York Giants: ????

    I'm not saying that hand creams are inherently bad, but most of them feel like they're only putting a BandAid on the problem and not fixing them. The deep, concentrated texture of a balm looks (and feels) like it's getting down to business immediately, the same way a lip balm for cracked lips will always feel more soothing than a lip gloss. There are so many options for good hand and skin balms that will actually put a dent in your dry skin.
    It's known as the best medicine, but laughter really can help our health - as long as we're laughing with friends, a new study suggests.  Sharing a laugh with a good mate reduces the risk of cognitive or physical disability by over 30 per cent for people aged 65 and over, researchers have found.  This was in comparison to people of the same age who laughed alone, such as when they were watching TV with no-one for company.  While the reason for the findings remains unclear, researchers suggest that laughing with friends may improve our immune functions, which in turn can reduce the risk of disability.    Laughter is the best medicine: Sharing a joke with friends reduces the risk of disability by over 30 per cent, according to the study (stock image) WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL DISABILITY?  Functional disability has been defined as acquired difficulty in performing basic everyday tasks or more complex tasks needed for independent living, either due to cognitive or physical impairment.

    Bob Saget's widow Kelly Rizzo said he had no health concerns and was feeling 'great' when he died suddenly on January 9. Speaking in her first set of TV interviews since the actor's death, Rizzo, 42, sobbed and described him as the 'best man' she has ever known.  The pair were about to celebrate their third wedding anniversary when he died in a hotel room in Orlando earlier this month. It's unclear what caused the 65-year-old's death.  Rizzo told Good Morning America's TJ Holmes that Saget was healthy. 'All I'll point to is that last post of his where he said he felt 26,' she said, referring to her husband's tragic final Instagram post where he talked about his joy being back on stage.  She said he had COVID recently but that it was 'nothing serious' and that he otherwise felt 'great'.  'There's only so many tears your body will let you cry,' Rizzo said, speaking from the L.A. home she shared with the comedian. The interview, taped yesterday, was the first day she said she was able to speak...

The Senate Judiciary Committee is set to deliberate on the American Innovation and Choice Online Act, which some experts consider to have the most realistic chance of actually becoming law out of broad slate of reforms, while also creating major change in the industry. The committee schedule also lists a markup of the Open App Markets Act, another bipartisan competition bill. The two bills are similar in that they both would prevent certain dominant tech platforms from favoring their own products or services over others that rely on their marketplaces to do business.

    Tackling the PGA DFS slate for The American Express with our best DraftKings golf picks for each pricing tier and an ideal lineup for this week. We’re heading to The American Express this week for the next stop on the PGA Tour after the Hawaii Swing. Subsequently, we’re going to get heavy into the PGA DFS slate with our DraftKings golf picks for the week. This is an event that can be difficult to decipher given that it’s played across three courses and the fact that we’re also looking at a 54-hole cut as opposed to the more customary 36-hole cut. Subsequently, we’re really just looking for overall good players in solid form right now. So as we dive into this PGA DFS slate on DraftKings for The American Express, we’re going to look at our top plays from the five pricing tiers of players in addition to who we’re fading in each range before building a lineup. Let’s get into the plays (which, again, are the best plays — not an indictment on anyone who isn’t picked if you...
    A TEACHER has claimed she's come up with a "game changing" way of ensuring children never interrupt her. Whitney took to her TikTok page to let others into the secret of her "no no necklace", as she explained: "When I wear it, it means that my students cannot talk to me or cannot interrupt me." 2Teacher Whitney shared her amazing hack for ensuring her pupils don't interrupt her - wearing a no no necklaceCredit: TikTok / @whitchapp Adding that the necklace is "magical", she continued: "It means no no, I’m off limits... I wear it at my small group table, they know they cannot come up to me, or I wear it when I’m doing something super important and I just need a minute." Sometimes, Whitney's students even point out that she's not wearing the necklace, at which point she "scrambles to put it on". "It means no no, I’m off limits. It’s red, red is stop," she added. "Get a no no necklace - it’s a game changer!" However, despite Whitney hailing the power of the...

    Democrats on Tuesday admitted that they will add the attempted federal takeover of elections to their list of legislative failures despite efforts to break the filibuster. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) made an unusual move this week to schedule a vote on two bills, the Freedom to Vote and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, even though they lack the 60 votes to pass through the Senate. Instead, the New York Democrat will attempt to convince his 50-member majority to support breaking the legislative filibuster. However, many Democrats admitted Tuesday that the prospect of passing these bills already appears doomed, as Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have consistently opposed breaking the 60-vote filibuster threshold. “I just tell people we did the best that we could,” Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) admitted. “I just say specifically that whoever votes no on the rules change, it’s their responsibility that we couldn’t get this done.” “This is probably one of those votes that we absolutely have to have. Whether it’s good strategy or not, it’s more important for those...
    REAL MADRID star has condemned modern football for its focus on statistics and the decline of fans' attention spans. Benzema, 34, is enjoying a fruitful season in front of goal with 24 goals in just 27 matches. 1Karim Benzema dislikes how players' performances are now judgedCredit: AFP But it is the focus on his scoring efficiency that is troubling the Frenchman as he argues it is not necessarily a good barometer of how well he is playing. In an interview with France Football Benzema said: "We don't consume football like we used to. We can't follow a game for 90 minutes. There are social networks. "We don't have time to look at what a player does on the pitch, we just look at what he scored. "And the next day we consider the latter as the It's happened to me. "I don't play a good game, but I score a goal and I'm seen as the best. "I don't like that kind of football, but in the future it will be more and more like that....

    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...

In this season, as COVID-19 has pushed player absences and roster uncertainty to historic levels, reliable depth has never been more important — particularly at the point guard position. A backup point guard can stabilize a second-unit offense, scoring or creating opportunities for his teammates. He can provide a defensive boost at the point of attack and he can be flexible enough to play significant minutes with the starters, adjusting his role as needed. The best teams in the league all have competent ball-handlers and creators coming off the bench but there are a few that are standing above the rest. For this exercise, I’m taking a slightly more liberal approach to characterizing a backup, looking at players who have appeared in at least 30 games this season with fewer than 15 starts. In terms of characterizing someone as a point guard, I’m relying on a few stats like time of possession, assist rate...

    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...
