    A Robeks worker who was branded a 'f**king immigrant loser' and was struck with a smoothie by an irate Merrill Lynch financier who threw a racist tirade at her workplace has said she feared his intentions when he stormed in the store on Saturday.  'It was kind of scary, I'm not going to lie because I'm like 'I don't know his intention or what he was going to do,' 18-year-old Gianna Miranda, who works part-time at the Robeks in Fairfield, Connecticut, told local news station WFSB.  Gianna and two coworkers were the target of 48-year-old James Iannazzo's racist tirade after a smoothie he had purchased at the store, which 'contained peanut butter', caused his son a severe anaphylactic reaction.   Iannazzo's fit of rage was recorded and posted on Tiktok by Charlie Hill, who called 911 while Gianna attempted to make Iannazzo leave the store.  'He started to call her racial slurs. He threatened to kill us multiple times,' Hill, who is 17 according to the social media platform, told WFSB. 'I understand and we are sorry on behalf of Robeks...
    Unvaccinated Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers hinted his playing career may be coming to a close, and said he didn't think it 'would end like this' after stunning 13-10 loss to the 49ers Saturday.  Speaking after the shocking loss in Green Bay Saturday, Rogers said he felt. 'A little numb, for sure,' adding: 'I didn't think it was going to end like this.' Rodgers said he will take time to have conversations with 'people around here' and make a determination about his future before the start of free agency.  Following a loss in the divisional playoffs Saturday night at Lambeau Field, Rodgers' next move has never been more uncertain as he wrapped his 17th season with the Packers. 'I'm going to take some time and have conversations with the folks around here and then take some time away and make a decision - obviously before free agency,' Rodgers said Saturday postgame.  In an ESPN profile that was published Friday, Packers star Rodgers said he didn't think his career 'would end like this' after stunning 13-10 loss to the 49ers...
    Secretary of State Antony Blinken said it's possible Kremlin officials are just 'going through the motions' of diplomacy on Sunday after a week of intense international talks aimed at de-escalating Russian aggression on Ukraine's border.  Even after meeting with his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in Geneva on Friday, Blinken admitted on NBC's Meet The Press that Moscow could still invade the smaller former Soviet state despite the efforts of Western governments. The US's chief diplomat also would not rule out possible American military involvement in the worsening conflict, during a separate interview on CNN's State of the Union Sunday. 'It is certainly possible that the diplomacy the Russians are engaged in is simply going through the motions and it won't affect their ultimate decision about whether to invade or in some other way intervene, or not in Ukraine,' Blinken told NBC host Chuck Todd.  'But, we have a responsibility to see the diplomacy through for as, as far and as long as we can go because it's the more responsible way to bring this to a closure.'

    'The show must go on' is the cardinal rule of showbusiness; its first and only commandment. And yet Adele, whose record-breaking singing career is a global phenomenon, was today waking up to a huge backlash after deciding that she 'wasn't ready' for a megabucks series of concerts in Las Vegas. Fans, many of whom had paid up to £9,000 for resold tickets and had already travelled long distances for the opening night, were left angry and out of pocket when Adele opted to pull the plug at the 11th hour from the string of concerts that would have netted her £500,000 a show. Gillian Rowland-Kain, 32, was already on her flight to Las Vegas from New York with her twin sister when she found out about the cancellation via social media. The attorney from Brooklyn said: 'I was furious that Adele waited so last minute to make this call.  I recognise it's not a call any artist wants to make but she would've known yesterday that the show wouldn't be ready by tomorrow. 'Her lack of notice is astounding. I'm...
    USA Swimming announced it will allow 'non-elite' athletes to compete in a way that is 'consistent with their gender identity' following Ivy League swimmer Lia Thomas' record-smashing run. The organization, which oversees more than 360,000 members, released a statement Thursday after the NCAA Board of Governors said they will update their guidelines to follow the wishes of each sport's governing body. 'USA Swimming firmly believes in inclusivity and the opportunity for all athletes to experience the sport of swimming in a manner consistent with their gender identity and expression,' the statement read. 'We also strongly believe in competitive equity, and, like many, are doing our best to learn and educate ourselves on the appropriate balance in this space.' The announcement did not make clear whether transgender swimmers like Thomas are considered elite. The University of Pennsylvania swimmer, who has qualified to compete at the NCAA championships in March, has sparked debate over whether transgender women should  be allowed to compete against biological women. 'The non-elite athlete inclusion procedures remain unchanged. Following broad transgender policy changes in November 2021, the IOC...

    A world famous astrophotographer risked his own eyesight in a bid to capture a stunning image of Venus as it passed perilously close to the sun. Andrew McCarthy, from Arizona, US, takes some of the most striking and detailed images of astronomical objects, and shares them on social media as @Cosmic_Background. When producing his latest creation, a sensational view of Venus just five degrees from the sun, he put his own eyesight on the line to get the shot.  He had no way of seeing his target, Earth's 'evil twin' world, until it was in the viewfinder, so made use of a filter to plan the precise moment to expose the lens of his camera, and avoid ruining both his vision and the telescope with sunlight.  'This is the most dangerous shot I've ever attempted,' McCarthy said, adding that if he had attempted to see the shot visually he 'could have easily blinded' himself.  A world famous astrophotographer risked his own eyesight in a bid to capture a stunning image of Venus as it passed perilously close to the sun...
    Champion swimmer Michael Phelps has described the controversy that surrounds  transgender swimmer Lia Thomas is 'very complicated' - before adding that sports need a 'level playing field' to be fair.  Phelps, the most successful and most decorated Olympian of all time with a total of 28 medals, compared the issue of athletes like Thomas to doping in order to secure a competitive advantage in the pool.  Speaking to CNN, Phelps was adamant that something needed to be done about current NCAA guidelines that allow Thomas to compete against swimmers born female - but was unable to share any specific ideas.  'I think this leads back to the organizing committees again because it has to be a level playing field. That's something that we all need. Because that's what sports are. For me, I don't know where this is going to go. I don't know what's going to happen.'  Olympic champion swimmer Michael Phelps, 36, has reacted to the ongoing debate over trans college athlete Lia Thomas competing on women's swim team 'It's very complicated. We all should feel comfortable with who...
    Camille Kostek knows a thing or two about heating things up. Right before 2021 officially came to an end, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model attended the SI Awards in Florida with her longtime boyfriend, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski. The former cover girl made jaws drop when she rocked a golden cutout gown by celebrity fashion designer Usama Ishtay that proudly flaunted her assets. The 29-year-old completed the look with a football-shaped clutch. Fast-forward to 2022, and the star is already making a big splash with new episodes of TBS’ "Wipeout," where she serves as a field host. The extreme obstacle course series, hosted by John Cena and Nicole Byer, was previously the top new show during the summer of 2008. It amassed an international following that has resulted in several spin-offs and specials, including this latest popular rendition.

    Every day at dusk, a murder of cawing crows descends on downtown Sunnyvale, shrouding the sky over the main strip in darkness like a black cloud. With shrewd precision they swarm from tree to tree, swooping down above the heads of startled diners on Murphy Avenue’s outdoor tables. Like many Bay Area communities, the city has a burgeoning crow population. But in Sunnyvale, they’ve become such a nuisance that crows are now the second most common complaint Vice Mayor Alysa Cisners hears from residents, right behind speeding drivers. She and the city have finally had enough of the birds. So later this month, the city is rolling out a crow abatement pilot program. Which means a worker will point a $20 handheld laser at the crows, hoping to scare them away. “I live downtown and my complex abuts the Caltrain tracks and so that’s a noise issue, but often the crows that are immediately outside of the apartment are a larger noise nuisance,” Cisneros said. And, it’s not just the crow’s caws that have some folks at their wit’s end....
    Kelly Ripa has agreed with Cher that she would prefer to keeping dyeing her hair rather than letting it publicly go grey. Cher, 75, made a splash by telling People magazine that grey hair 'is fine for other girls' but 'I'm just not doing it!' And now the hostess of Live! With Kelly And Ryan has thrown in her lot with the pop diva, telling her co-host: 'I think that I need to dye my hair.'

    In a representative government, the context and accuracy of history changing events is of the utmost importance to ensure that we as voting Americans truly understand what is happening around us. Tragically, over the past thirteen years, from the Obama administration, to the Trump administration, and continuing through the Biden years, it has become increasingly challenging to discern the truth from propaganda touted by our media and the political ruling class. January 6th 2021, was a horrible day in our history – a tragic, heart-breaking, insane, and yes, historically-paradigm shifting day for all of us. I would never belittle the events of the attack on the Capitol. A year ago, I was already living a mere fifteen-minute drive from Capitol Hill, and can remember driving into work and calling my then-executive producer and telling him that something felt very wrong that morning. The streets were filled with angry MAGA supporters swarming the area around the Capitol and into where I was taping out of the ABC news bureau. They were in cars, honking, yelling, waving flags and clearly trying to...
    A DUI driver in Pennsylvania was arrested after she struck a deer, put it in her trunk, and then kept going, authorities said. Officers conducting a traffic stop near Old Trail Road and Old York Road around midnight on Jan. 6 noticed the live deer in the back of the car, Newberry Township police said. The 19-year-old female driver and her 21-year-old male passenger from York Haven told police they had hit the deer before putting it in the trunk, authorities said. They later learned the deer was still alive, but they continued to drive with it in the vehicle, according to police. Police video shows the passenger removing the deer from the car and releasing it onto a nearby grassy area off the road. The driver was taken into custody as part of the DUI investigation.  The Pennsylvania Game Commission is assisting in the investigation.

    This is the crazy moment a Russian adventurer cut out a perfect circle of ice on a frozen lake to make his very own fairground ride.  Farmer Nikolai Zlydnev, 35, from Leninsk, Russia used a metal pole, axe, and a chainsaw to measure out and cut the circle.  Footage shows him then use the pole to smash a small hole near the edge of the circle for his outboard motor.  Farmer Nikolai Zlydnev, 35, from Leninsk, Russia uses a metal pole, axe, chainsaw to measure out and cut the circle Zlydnev, pictured, used a chainsaw to cut through the ice on the lake in Leninsk, Russia Zlydnev sat down on an upturned metal bucket and used his outboard motor to spin him a round in a circle on his ice carousel Moments later, Zlydnev returned from off camera carrying a small metal bucket and a tiny two-stroke outboard motor.  The farmer puts the propeller through the ice and turns the bucket upside down to use as a makeshift seat.  As soon as Zlydnev fires up the outboard's engine, he is propelled around in...
    Despite there being absolutely zero scientific evidence to support it, Fox News host Tucker Carlson suggested Wednesday night that getting vaccinated makes you more likely to get infected with Covid-19. The seemingly throw-away but dangerous suggestion came at the end of a brief rant about the distribution of monoclonal antibodies for those fighting Covid-19, and how racial demographics have played a part in public health strategies, which, unto itself, is a completely reasonable topic for discussion. Before introducing former Trump advisor — and frequent Fox News guest — Stephen Miller, Carlson offered what many will see as dangerously irresponsible commentary on the efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccination. “Meanwhile, it seems like Covid makes it more likely that you’re gonna get, the shot, makes it more likely you’re going to get Covid,” Carlson said. With signature Valley Girl exasperation, he added, “Whatever! It’s crazy.” Yes, Carlson stumbled over his words, but his intent is clear: to deride the benefits of the Covid vaccines to his viewership, a significant portion of which is looking for reasons NOT to get vaccinated. It is not...
    Just before 11:30 a.m. Thursday, emergency dispatchers alerted firefighters to a grassfire reported near Marshall Road and Colorado 93 south of Boulder. The hurricane-force winds buffeting Boulder County meant it already had been a busy morning, with fire crews racing to stop two other grassfires north of the city limits. But the new fire near Marshall Road would prove to be a different beast. Powerful winds pushed the flames east and it exploded within minutes, sending a column of smoke skyward as it burned across parched grassland toward the suburban subdivisions of Superior. Tens of thousands of Boulder County residents fled that afternoon and evening as the entire town of Superior, then its neighbor across U.S. 36, the city of Louisville, were ordered to evacuate. The firestorm, accelerated by vicious winds and drought conditions, tore through Superior, jumped the turnpike and burned into Louisville. By late Thursday, the Marshall fire had burned 6,000 acres and destroyed nearly 1,000 homes and businesses to become the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history. The flames leveled a hotel in Superior and scorched the...
    This is the moment a vehicle lining up for a COVID-19 drive-thru test was overtaken by a turtle.  The video was recorded on Wednesday, December 29 at the Florida Atlantic University testing center in Boca Raton, Florida. Cory Safra, who captured the amusing footage, can be heard saying: 'You know the COVID line is moving slow when the turtle is passing you.' Corey Safra was overtaken by a turtle while he lined up for a drive-thru COVID-19 test in Boca Raton, Florida, as Omicron sweeps the nation, putting unprecedented demand on testing centers According to Mr Safra, his wait dragged on for a four hours.   A record 46,923 new COVID cases were reported in Florida on Wednesday.  The video is emblematic of a nationwide problem, as the Biden administration comes under mounting pressure to provide more testing capacity, with many people having to wait hours for a COVID test. Yesterday there were 301,472 new daily average cases reported in the US - the highest ever.  As the new Omicron variant sweeps the nation, demand on testing centers has reached record...
    "The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years." Glenn went on to add that "nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction. That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' … Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030 you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

    Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, vice-chair of the House select committee investigating Jan. 6, speaks at a hearing on holding former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows in criminal contempt of Congress. Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, vice chair of the House select committee investigating Jan. 6, is acting with the urgency of a woman whose days may be numbered. As she stares down the political headwinds of Donald Trump's fury, Cheney's political future is undoubtedly in jeopardy. But the lion's share of her efforts aren't consumed with trying to save her seat in the House of Representatives. Instead, Cheney is directing every ounce of her fire power at revealing Trump's crimes against the republic in order to neutralize him as a national political force. She may or may not succeed, but she clearly believes it's the only path to saving America's constitutional democracy. As for retaining her seat, that's secondary. Cheney knows a win in 2022 would be nothing more than a short-term blip if Trump is left unchecked to savage the country's future. What some political observers seem...
    Getty Images Without the child tax credit, Stormy Johnson is worried about having enough to eat. Johnson, 44, works as a student support specialist in Preston County Schools in Kingwood, West Virginia. Since July, she's been receiving an additional $500 each month through the enhanced child tax credit for her two children, Violet, 14, and Tristan, 13, whom she parents alone. That money has helped the family stay afloat. In the last year, they had to move due to a fire and Johnson had to get a new car after the engine in hers blew out. With the rising costs of housing and vehicles, she now has $1,400 more in expenses each month than she had to pay last year, she said. "I have $50 left before the child tax credit, and that's just with my house, car payment, my insurance and necessary utilities," she said. "That's before I buy any food, pay for gas for work or get any toiletries." More from Invest in You:'Tis the season for holiday bills. Here's how to pay them offInflation could mean a big...
    INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Staley did not apologize because he isn’t sorry. The Los Angeles Chargers’ rookie head coach did not lament leaving a bunch of probable points on the field Thursday night because he didn’t regret it. For as long as Staley is in charge, he vows the Bolts are going to be highly aggressive on fourth downs — even after that defiant mentality left the football world wondering whether it cost Los Angeles a crucial game against Kansas City, the team it’s trying to dethrone atop the AFC West. The Chargers (8-6) went 2 for 5 on fourth downs in their 34-28 overtime loss to the Chiefs, with two failed attempts to convert inside the Kansas City 5 and another on the edge of field goal range. Staley’s decisions were analytically sound and aggressively supported by his players, but the Chargers’ failures to convert invited the nation to second-guess Staley’s immutable belief in his philosophy and in Justin Herbert’s offense. “That’s going to be the mindset no matter who we play,” Staley said. “That’s the way you...
    President Joe Biden issued a stark warning about the risks the Omicron variant poses to the unvaccinated in particular, as the nation braces for a steep escalation in cases amid an expected surge in hospitalizations.   'It's here, it's spreading and it's going to increase,' Biden cautioned in remarks Wednesday afternoon. With the highly transmissible new variant spreading at an alarming rate, amid an ongoing surge in the Delta variant, Biden warned of the trauma facing Americans who have not received covid vaccines.  'For the unvaccinated, we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death,' said Biden. He also gave yet another hard sell for Americans to get booster shots.  'Get your booster shot. It's critically important,' he said.  'It's here, it's spreading and it's going to increase,' President Joe Biden said of the Omicron variant, as he urged Americans to get their booster shots 'So the whole point is: Omicron is here, it's going to start to spread much more rapidly [in the] beginning of the year, and the only real protection is to get your shots.  He...

    Football is climbing the league table of popular US sports and has now overtaken ice hockey in fourth place and is homing in on baseball in third. The bumper £2billion deal the Premier League struck with NBC after a battle among American broadcasters this month reflects the growing popularity of the sport. The English top flight doubled its money when the channel renewed its contract and committed to show 380 games for six seasons on its cable and digital channels. The most-watched Premier League match stateside was Manchester United's 2-0 win over Manchester City in March 2020, when 1.76million saw the game live on American television And an analysis by Sportsmail shows that Association Football - known as soccer in the US - has now overhauled ice hockey and sits behind baseball, basketball and American football in the top five US sports. 'Today soccer is the fourth sport in the US in terms of popularity. Football is now just ahead of ice hockey. It follows a tremendous growth in popularity of football,' said Pierre Maes, a sports media strategist. 'This...
    President Joe Biden flew to Kansas City to highlight the bipartisan credentials of the new $1.2 trillion infrastructure law – lavishing praise on Republicans and vowing to create an 'infrastructure decade.' 'Guess what, it's going to be an infrastructure decade,' he said, mocking former President Donald Trump's repeat 'infrastructure weeks' - which often coincided with a scandal.  'No more talking, action,' the president added.  He began his speech at a transit depot by honoring the late son of Russell Kansas, Bob Dole, a Republican who spent 37 years in the Senate – a year longer than Biden. He praised Dole's 'both physical and moral courage' and called him 'among the greatest of the great generation,' calling the former Senate leader, who died Tuesday, a 'cherished friend to me and my wife, Jill.'  Dole was just one of the Republicans Biden tipped his hat to. Throughout the day, he made a point of name-checking Republicans, touting a bipartisan accomplishment as he tries to push another measure through the Senate on a party-line vote.  He greeted the state's GOP governor, Mike Parson,...
    The muscles and organs of an ammonite — an extinct relative of cuttlefish and squid with coiled shells and tentacles — have been reconstructed in 3D for the first time. The achievement has allowed a team of researchers led from Cardiff University to show how the marine molluscs were able to swim around and evade predators. For example, the arrangement and relative sizes of the muscles indicated that — just like modern squid and octopuses — ammonites swam by a sort of 'jet propulsion'. This involved the expulsion of water from a muscular tube-like funnel called the hyponome, which would have sent the shelled creature zipping away backwards. Muscles linked to the ammonite's soft body would have allowed it to retract into its shell for protection — making up for a lack of defences like hoods or ink sacs. Previously, as ammonite soft tissues are rarely preserved in the fossil record, experts have relied on comparisons with living analogues to reconstruct ammonite biology.  Specifically, palaeontologists draw comparisons with species of Nautilus, a family of modern cephalopods that also sport coiled, buoyant shells. But the reconstruction, made...
    David Perdue getting the MAGA rally treatment during his reelection campaignRobin Rayne/Zuma Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Remember that cult of personality who selfishly had his supporters commit an almost-coup about a year ago because he couldn’t accept that he lost? Well, it seems he’s still the de facto leader of the Republican party. As Georgia heads for a gubernatorial election, a new poll of likely Republican voters suggests that former President Trump’s endorsement could sway the primary. An initial survey of 500 Georgians found that 41 percent would vote for incumbent Brian Kemp, while 22 percent favored former Sen.

    As at home COVID-19 tests become increasingly popular in the U.S., they are causing a blind spot for many public health officials' contact tracing efforts as results typically are not reported to authorities. Rapid antigen tests such as Abbott's BinaxNOW can be purchased over the counter and taken at home, and consumers aren't required to report their results.  When a person takes a PCR test, for comparison, the results are analyzed in a laboratory and positive tests are reported to health officials. One researcher estimates that about 40 million Covid tests are performed each week, 28 million of which are rapid antigen tests - and the majority of those are taken at home, according to STAT News. The unreported test results can make it hard for public health officials to perform contact tracing or identify outbreaks, such as an outbreak at a Halloween weekend of concerts in Las Vegas. Still, experts say that making at home tests widely available is a key strategy for controlling the virus's spread, as the tests can provide people with quick and actionable information about...

Eli Fritchley, took his own life on November 28, was described by his parents as someone who wasn’t afraid to be himself. ‘He was peaceful,’ his mother, Debbey Fritchley of Shelbyville, who found her son’s lifeless body in his bedroom on the Sunday before last, told WKRN-TV. ‘He was a peaceful soul.’ She said Eli, who attended Cascade Middle School, played the trombone in a marching band, painted his fingernails, and liked to wear pink. He also wore the same SpongeBob sweater to class almost every day. Debbey Fritchley said that before his suicide, Eli did not give the impression that he took the bullying to heart. Eli Fritchley, 12, of Shelbyville, Tennessee, took his own life on November 28 ‘He was peaceful,’ his mother, Debbey Fritchley of Shelbyville, who found her son’s lifeless body in his bedroom on the Sunday before last Sunday, said 'He didn't care,...
    The Texas realtor who flew to the Capitol riot on a private jet and bragged that she was 'too white and blonde' to go to prison has planned a weight loss, yoga and alcohol detox regiment for her 60 days behind bars The Texas realtor who flew to the Capitol riot on a private jet and bragged that she was 'too white and blonde' to go to prison has planned a weight loss, yoga and alcohol detox regiment for her 60 days behind bars. Jennifer 'Jenna' Ryan, 50 - who pleaded guilty to a federal misdemeanor charge of parading on Capitol grounds - posted to TikTok Monday explaining how she's going to make her prison sentence 'worth it'.

    The New York Giants’ quarterback situation appeared to be more clouded after Sunday’s 20-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Daniel Jones missed the game with a neck injury and is reportedly set to miss Week 14’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Mike Glennon, who started against Miami, suffered a concussion during the game and may not be able to play against the Chargers. Jake Fromm, a second-year player out of Georgia, is the lone healthy quarterback on the roster it appears.

    Don “Wink” Martindale did not waste his breath, trying to pretend the Ravens’ impending trip to Pittsburgh was a routine bit of NFL business. The team’s defensive coordinator cherishes the crackling atmosphere at Heinz Field so much that he told linebacker Tyus Bowser he’d play there twice a year if he could. Facing the Steelers is an elixir for Martindale’s 58-year-old bones. “The young ones will find out about it,” he said. “I told them that, ‘If you want to be known in this city, play well against Pittsburgh.’” Every game looms large for the Ravens as they enter the last six weeks of this season, clinging to the AFC’s No. 1 seed and to their perch atop the AFC North. But seasoned members of the organization say Steelers week remains a thing apart, even if the games are not as bitter as they once were. Ravens-Steelers remains one of the NFL’s most evocative rivalries, shorthand for brash, punishing football played between perennial contenders. Since the AFC North was created in 2002, the teams have combined...
    Fox News’ Senior White House Correspondent Peter Doocy challenged Friday President Joe Biden on his administration’s change of course on containing the spread of COVID-19. “[O]n COVID policy, it seems like the administration is starting to soften some of the language.  There’s this new op-ed where you talk about COVID and ‘We’re going to beat it back.’  Are you no longer going to ‘shut it down’?” Doocy asked Biden after the president’s Friday address discussing the November jobs report. “No, we got to beat it back before we shut it down. Look, it’s going to take time worldwide. In order to beat COVID, we have to shut it down worldwide,” Biden responded. “In the United States of America, we’re doing everything that needs to be done to take care of the American people within our borders.” WATCH: Biden then said that it would be impossible to “build a wall around” the U.S. to isolate the country every time a new strain of the virus is discovered, even though new variants disrupt the “progress” in the epidemiological situation. The Omicron...
    According to CNN insiders, Zucker "hit the roof," the Post reported, when he saw the documentation. It wasn't the unethical behavior as a journalist and CNN host that got him in trouble, it was lying to the big boss. Cuomo's "biggest crime was that he lied to Zucker," another source told the Post, adding, "He didn't own up to it." Another source told the Post that the scuttlebutt inside CNN is that "it's over" for Cuomo, speculating, "I don't see how he survives this."
    Greg Gutfeld and his co-hosts on "The Five" dropped some gun-related red pills Tuesday as crime and looting rock the country. "Black Friday? More like Glock Friday," Gutfeld quipped.  "Gun control is dead, and it was killed by the leftists and the media," he continued, explaining that the left "killed it by pushing riots as protests and pushing the defunding and the demoralization of law enforcement." "All that's left is the Second Amendment, and it's dawning on everyone like a giant red nuclear pill that…was detonated over America, that the only thing between you and anarchy is self-protection," Gutfeld said. SECOND AMENDMENT GROUPS ON BIDEN MANDATE: IF HE CAN FORCE A NEEDLE IN YOUR ARM, CAN HE TAKE YOUR GUN? "The problem with the Democrats…[is] they don't understand human nature and the incentivization of human nature," he remarked. Gutfeld described how they "have been incentivizing gun purchases by decriminalizing crime" and using no cash bail to "[put] the criminal on a pedestal while putting victims in jeopardy." In such a system, if an assault victim calls the police on his...
    (CNN)Rain fell on the summit of Greenland instead of snow for the first time on record in August, as the Northern Hemisphere experienced warmer-than-usual summer temperatures. A new study suggests that's likely to be the norm in just four or five decades.The Arctic is expected to experience more rain than snow some time between 2060 and 2070, marking a major transition in its precipitation patterns as the climate crisis jacks up temperatures in the region, according to the study published on Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications.The Arctic Ocean began warming decades earlier than previously thought, new research showsNew climate modeling shows the transition could happen earlier than scientists had previously projected. Michelle McCrystall, the lead author of the study and climate researcher at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, told CNN that earlier modeling suggested it wouldn't occur until between 2090 and 2100."But with the new set of models, this actually has been pushed forward to about between 2060 and 2070, so there's quite a jump there by 20 years with this early transition," she said.

    BRUSSELS (AP) — Dutch health authority says it found new omicron coronavirus variant in local cases going back 11 days. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, written or redistributed.
    Dr. Anthony Fauci does not believe that a future without Covid-19 exists — at least in some form. On Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press, moderator Chuck Todd quizzed the infectious disease expert about whether Covid-19 will ever go away completely. “Is it pretty clear this is now an endemic?” Todd asked. He added, “How does this end any other way? … That we’re gonna have this virus circulate for perpetuity.” “We certainly are not going to eradicate it,” Fauci said. “We’ve only ever eradicated one virus, and that’s smallpox. Elimination means there’s none of it in the country like we have now with polio and measles. I don’t think we’re going to be there with this.” That said, Fauci went on to express a bullish view that the U.S., with vaccination, can get to a level where Covid doesn’t have a “major impact” on day-to-day life. “What I do think we will be able to do is get a level of control that’s low enough that it doesn’t interfere with our function,” Fauci said. “It doesn’t have a major...

    Amid growing fears over a new super-mutated COVID-19 variant that looks to be quickly spreading across the world, Dr. Anthony Fauci said over the weekend that Americans are “going to have to start living” with the virus as “we’re not going to eradicate” it. Nearly two years into an ongoing pandemic that’s killed millions worldwide and over 750,000 in the U.S., global markets were spooked last week after coronavirus cases dramatically surged in South Africa. The spike has been blamed on the Omicron variant and has prompted the United States to place travel restrictions on eight African countries. At the same time, however, the new virus strain has already been detected in several European countries and Hong Kong, sparking concern among health officials that Omicron is not only highly transmissible but could evade current COVID-19 vaccines. Making the Sunday show rounds, Fauci warned that “we really need to be prepared” for increased Omicron transmission. Explaining on NBC’s Meet the Press that Omicron has “32 or more variants in that very important spike protein of the virus,” the nation’s top infectious...
