    SAN MATEO (KPIX) – The search for at-home COVID-19 tests sent people from one drugstore to the next on Monday, hoping to get their hands on kits for a variety of reasons. While tests are becoming available in more places, supplies still remain low.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — For the third straight week, the Los Angeles Rams took a huge early lead. For the second time in those three weeks, they subsequently gave it all away. The Rams (14-5) got away with it in the divisional playoff round in Tampa Bay, thanks to Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp impressively setting up Matt Gay’s winning field goal as time expired on their 30-27 victory. “What an interesting game,” coach Sean McVay said. “What an amazing sign of resilience. A lot of things didn’t go our way in the second half, but we just kept battling and found a way.” But two weeks before that, the Rams paid for their profligacy in yet another loss to the San Francisco 49ers, who just happen to be their opponent in the NFC championship game this weekend. The Rams are on the brink of a Super Bowl berth in their home stadium because they’ve won seven of their past eight games with a comprehensively strong offense and a rapidly improving defense. Their biggest remaining issue is closing out wins:...
    The NYPD 'super rookie' who shot the man accused of killing 22-year-old Jason Rivera and seriously injuring 27-year-old Wilbert Mora, is still struggling to cope with the events of Friday's shootout.  Officer Sumit Sulan, 27, was with Rivera and Mora as they visited a Harlem address to investigate a domestic-violence call on Friday.   Rivera and Mora went to confront convicted felon Lashawn McNeil, 47, in his bedroom, while Sulan stayed behind with McNeil's mother. McNeil is said to have ran from the bedroom and opened fire, before Sulan returned fire back and wounded him as he tried to flee.  Since the events, Sulan cannot get what happened out of his head, his mother told the New York Post.

    Police in one Fairfield County city are warning residents of a string of overdose deaths linked to the use of fentanyl-lace opiates. Captain Richard Conklin of the Stamford Police Department said on Sunday, Jan. 23, police are investigating a "string of overdose deaths that appear to be due to the use of fentanyl-laced opiates."  While there currently is no evidence that these three deaths of city residents are directly related, the department is warning the public with regard to the rapid and deadly effects of fentanyl, Conklin said. Fentanyl is widely prevalent in the illicit drug supply chain, oftentimes, without the knowledge of persons purchasing and using these drugs, which include, but are not limited to, heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and counterfeit pills often represented as prescription medication, he added. "We would also like to remind those who are struggling with drug addiction, and those who love someone struggling with addiction, that help is available through local organizations such as Liberation Programs, whether the need is treatment or a lifesaving opioid overdose kit containing Narcan. Awareness can save you, or someone you...
    THOMAS TUCHEL has admitted his star striker Romelu Lukaku is lacking confidence as his struggle for goals continues. The Chelsea forward has scored just once so far this year - finding the net in the 5-1 FA Cup thrashing of minnows Chesterfield. 1Relations between Thomas Tuchel and his player have been strainedCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun Relations between boss Tuchel and the Belgium international have been strained since the latter gave a controversial interview in which he said the Blues’ system didn’t suit him. He was subsequently axed from the squad to face Liverpool at the turn of the year, but has since returned to the line-up. And Tuchel told Sky Sports: “(Lukaku) lacks a bit of confidence, he lacks a bit of delivery, of momentum. “This is what we try to reinstall which is maybe the most difficult because the strikers are sensitive players. “It's not only Romelu who struggles and we don't have, in the moment, anyone else who...
    A SMALL wealth tax on America's multi-millionaires and billionaires could raise more than $900 billion a year which could fund two more $1,400 stimulus checks, reports say. The analysis noted that during the Covid-19 pandemic the wealth of the world's richest has risen dramatically while inequality was widening. 1A small stealth tax could pay for more stimulus checks, a study foundCredit: Getty The wealth of American billionaires has increased by $2 trillion since the start of the pandemic while many households have been left struggling to make ends meet. But a study published by Fight Inequality Alliance, Institute for Policy Studies, Oxfam and a group called Patriotic Millionaires, has concluded there is a solution.  A wealth tax, with rates at 2 percent for those with more than $5 million rising to 5 percent for billionaires, could raise $928.39 billion a year, the report calculated. A two percent rate on wealth over $5 million rising to 10 percent for those with more than $1 billion, would raise $1.34 trillion. The report said an extra $928.39 billion could raise the government's health...
    EDMONTON (AP) — Sergei Bobrovsky was once a shutout machine. It had been a while since the Florida Panthers goaltender last had a clean sheet. Bobrovsky made 40 saves for his first shutout of the season and the Panthers beat the ice-cold Edmonton Oilers 6-0 Thursday night. READ MORE: Sunrise Police Sgt. Christopher Pullease, Who Grabbed Officer By The Throat, Under Criminal Investigation“He was dialled in right from the start and made huge saves for us all night long and kept us in the game until we finally got our footing under us a little bit and started to play better,” Florida forward Carter Verhaeghe said. “He was the best player on the ice by far. He made some unbelievable saves on the penalty kill and all night long and really kept us in it.” Bobrovsky’s previous shutout was Nov. 2, 2019, for Florida against Detroit. “We worked together,” the 33-year-old said. “The guys had timely blocked shots and helped a lot in the D zone.

    EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Sergei Bobrovsky made 40 saves for his first shutout of the season and the Florida Panthers beat the ice-cold Edmonton Oilers 6-0 Thursday night. Aleksander Barkov had two goals and an assist for the Panthers (27-8-5), who improved to 9-1-1 in their last 11 games. Carter Verhaeghe, Anthony Duclair, Sam Bennett and Owen Tippett also scored for Florida. Mikko Koskinen stopped 22 shots as the Oilers (18-16-2) lost their seventh straight. Edmonton has a 2-11-2 record in its last 15 games, and disgruntled fans threw Oilers jerseys on the ice after Tippett’s late goal made it 6-0. Florida got on the board first, scoring a power-play goal about 5 1/2 minutes into the second period. Sam Reinhart chipped a puck over splayed defender Darnell Nurse to Barkov, who fired home his 16th of the season. Verhaeghe was left alone in front of the net and unleashed a bullet to the top corner for his 14th of the season near the midpoint of the game to give the Panthers a 2-0 lead. Barkov added to Florida’s...
    DAVID DE GEA is on course for Manchester United’s Player of the Year award yet again. But that normally does not bode well for the club’s Premier League standing come May. 1David De Gea was superb as United won 3-1 at BrentfordCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun Winning the Sir Matt Busby gong in 2014, 2015 and 2016 followed league positions of 7th, 4th and 5th. They bucked the trend in 2018 by finishing 2nd as De Gea triumphed for a fourth time – although 19 points behind winners Manchester City can hardly be celebrated. You would not put it past United following suit with a lowly finish this year either. It must sound like a broken record to United fans who have suffered watching dross after dross donning their badge year after year, but where would this club be without De Gea? Once more his performance sees the Red Devils avoid yet another mini crisis with several world class saves that denied Brentford heading into the break three or four goals ahead. And that is no exaggeration. United –...

Anae’s agent David Canter announced the news on Twitter.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – To bolster his struggling golf resort in Doral, Donald Trump plans to build 2,300 luxury homes on the site along with retail and commercial space. It’s part of a flurry of recent moves to revive a family business suffering from the one-two punch of a divisive presidency and coronavirus shutdowns. READ MORE: 45 Years Ago: Snow In MiamiIn a news release Monday, the 45th president called the plans for his sprawling Trump National Doral resort “perhaps the most exciting development in the country” but was short on details such as the size of the homes and what they may cost. The Doral, the biggest revenue generator among Trump’s 17 golf properties, has been a drain on the business in recent years. In 2019, Trump announced plans to hold the global meeting of Group of Seven leaders at the resort, a potential big money maker for hosts. But he had to cancel after a bipartisan outcry over self-dealing and a possible violation of a constitutional ban on presidents receiving gifts or payments from foreign leaders. The...

    Vice President Kamala Harris has reportedly struggled to define herself as vice president after failing to fulfill political promises in 2021. After conducting two difficult political resets in two months, Harris is taking heat for failing to enact the destruction of election integrity measures, among other “difficult” initiatives assigned by President Biden, the Associated Press reported. In a rare rebuke from the establishment media, the AP printed and the Washington Post republished a story entitled, “Harris still struggling to define herself one year in VP job”: Both White House press secretary Jen Psaki and Harris aides had no clear answer when asked why the vice president didn’t join Biden in the meeting. It was yet another example of the difficulty Harris has faced throughout her first year in office, as she’s struggled to define herself and her role. Harris has grappled with an expansive portfolio of difficult assignments, fielded questions about her relationship with the president and faced what allies say is unprecedented scrutiny for a vice president — without, some worry, adequate support from the White House.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden put the full weight of his presidency behind voting rights action last week, heading to Capitol Hill in an effort to push Democrats to change Senate rules to pass legislation. Vice President Kamala Harris — whom Biden tapped to take the lead on passing voting rights legislation in June — wasn’t there. Both White House press secretary Jen Psaki and Harris aides had no clear answer when asked why the vice president didn’t join Biden in the meeting. It was yet another example of the difficulty Harris has faced throughout her first year in office, as she’s struggled to define herself and her role. Harris has grappled with an expansive portfolio of difficult assignments, fielded questions about her relationship with the president and faced what allies say is unprecedented scrutiny for a vice president — without, some worry, adequate support from the White House.

    Getty Miami Heat wing Duncan Robinson celebrates during a game against the Philadelphia 76ers. If it had been Miami Heat wing Duncan Robinson who had been whirled away to Oz by a tornado and not Dorothy Gale, he may have been wise to stay and set up shop in the Emerald City; maybe start a new podcast about the class struggle between flying monkeys and wicked witches. While there may be no place like home for the latter, South Beach has been a surprisingly rough spot for Robinson this season. During Miami’s latest home bout with the Sixers on Saturday, the fourth-year pro had a particularly bad outing. In a year full of less-than-spectacular performances, it may have been his worst to date. Over 17 minutes of play, Robinson scored just two points on 1-of-9 shooting and missed all eight of his three-point attempts. Alas, that’s just the kind of year it has been for the Heat’s $90 million man.Robinson’s Home Numbers Are Jaw-Dropping Play The return of Bam Adebayo: Duncan Robinson's last shot to savage this...
    Prince Andrew was said to be tearful after the Queen removed his honorary military titles, it was claimed tonight. The Duke of York, who can no longer be known as His Royal Highness 'in any official capacity', is expected to write to his former regiments to express his remorse at having to leave, the Sunday Mirror reported. 'The Prince was tearful when told the news even though he had expected it. He feels that he has let so many people down, not least his mother, during her Platinum Jubilee year,' a senior defence source said. The news comes as the prince was said to have hosted a shooting party for about 12 friends and relatives on Friday - a day after the monarch's decision to remove the titles.  The group is understood to have gathered at his Royal Lodge home before heading off for the shoot in Great Windsor Park, Berkshire.

    IT'S two weeks into 2022 and highly likely you are already struggling to stick to your "New Year diet". While you're not alone, an expert has claimed there are actually three simple reasons for you falling off the wagon. 1Registered dietician Jamie Nadeau has revealed three reasons why you might be struggling to stick to a dietCredit: TikTok / thebalancednutritionist Registered dietician Jamie Nadeau, known as The Balanced Nutritionist on social media, admits that while these might be "hard to accept", they are key to getting back on track. She told her 145,000 TikTok followers that the first couldn't be more basic. "If the diet that once worked for you actually worked and was sustainable, you would still be doing it," she said. The second reason focuses more on results - or lack of - in the longer term. Jamie said: "Dieting and restriction usually doesn't result in long-term weight loss. "What it does result in is long-term weight gain." And third and finally, mum Jamie urged dieters to steer clear of certain mindsets which encourage unhelpful behaviour. "The...

    SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Darius Garland scored 28 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat San Antonio 114-109 on Friday night, extending the Spurs’ losing streak to five. Jarrett Allen finished with 17 points and 16 rebounds for Cleveland, which won its third straight and fourth in five games.

    The Warriors have lost four of five games and Thursday’s shellacking at the hands of the Bucks was, unquestionably, the worst loss of the season. How’s a 77-38 halftime deficit work for you? Yes, the Dubs are scuffling. But there’s no reason to press the panic button just, and the good news is that it can truly only go up from this point. I’m a firm believer that things are going to be fine for Golden State. They were an outstanding team for three months. A week-long struggle doesn’t negate that — especially considering the circumstances at hand. But there are a few things this team needs to correct if they want to look like that team from 2021 here in 2022. It starts, as all things with the Warriors do, with Steph Curry.

The Gunners are said to be close to finalising a loan deal for the former Barcelona talent from Juventus until the end of the season, as they look for cover for Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny who are on AFCON duty. 10Arthur Melo was touted as the Brazilian Iniesta back in his homelandCredit: Getty Images - Getty 10However, after moving to Europe (first with Barcelona) he has lost his wayCredit: Getty Back in his homeland, the now 25-year-old was compared to former Spain playmaker Andres Iniesta when he played for Gremio, winning Brazil's league twice, as well as a Copa Libertadores - South America's Champions League.

    RALF RANGNICK admits he has been surprised by the standard of struggling clubs in the Premier League after a stuttering start to his reign at Old Trafford. In his first seven games as Manchester United boss he has played all three clubs in the relegation zone. 1NINTCHDBPICT000704444990Credit: Getty He was lucky to get a 1-0 win at rock bottom Norwich courtesy of a late Cristiano Ronaldo penalty and was fortunate again to get a point at second bottom Newcastle after being outplayed. While they beat a woeful Burnley 3-1, they were only really on top for the first 35 minutes. Rangnick said: “What has surprised me a little is the teams in the lower ranks in the league are very physical and tactically very astute playing in a very organised way and in this league even against the bottom teams it is never easy. “The top teams can lose those games. “In Germany if the top teams like Bayern Munich play the bottom teams in 10 games they will ordinarily win eight or nine.”  While Rangnick has only lost one...
    A Chinese restaurant chain in the north west of England has been forced to make use of robotic waiters, after struggling for staff during the Covid pandemic. Directors at The Chinese Buffet unleashed one BellaBot in each of four restaurants in Liverpool, St Helens, Bolton and Wigan, to serve food to diners.  When the buffet re-opened after the last lockdown, its owners decided to serve food to people at the table, ordered via an app, rather than allow them to serve themselves. This added an extra strain on the already short waiting staff, according to owners Paolo Hu and Peter Wu, who said the BellaBots had already proved popular with diners. The guide price for the friendly-faced robots is $20,000 (£14,500), which is less than the cost of employing a waiter at minimum wage for 40 hours per week.  Quirky footage shows Bella, who features a wide-eyed feline face, sweeping across the restaurant floor dishing out delicacies to delighted customers.  A Chinese restaurant chain in the north west of England has been forced to make use of robotic waiters, after...

    SPECIAL Boat Service forces struggle to train because they do not have a big enough swimming pool, an MP claims. The elite commandos need a giant pool to practise their stealth techniques using mini-submarines, Conservative Richard Drax said. 1The unit, the sister service of the feared SAS, use secret mini-submersibles to sneak into hostile territory and sabotage enemy shippingCredit: alamy The existing facility in Poole, Dorset, was “not fit for purpose” and the frogmen rarely used it, he added. The unit, the sister service of the feared SAS, use secret mini-submersibles to sneak into hostile territory and sabotage enemy shipping. Mr Drax said: “They need a pool of some size and depth where they can train in a realistic environment. “If we can’t provide our own Special Forces with the most basic facilities, then I can’t think of a higher priority, other than accommodation.” The commandos routinely train in Poole Harbour and the Channel, around Mr Drax’s constituency. But he said the weather limited when they could train at sea — and urged the Government for “money to come...
                 Tennessee state officials took charge of four Memphis schools a decade ago that struggled academically, and those same state officials hoped the schools would perform better than they did under local control. That did not happen. Under state control, those schools performed even worse. JC Bowman, who directs the Nashville-based Professional Educators of Tennessee (PET) said Tuesday that state officials spent $1 billion on this program. He said the data he saw revealed 16 percent of students were on grade level under the domain of the Shelby County School System. But the numbers under the state-run schools deteriorated to 6 percent. “As woeful as 16 percent was, 6 percent is completely unacceptable. That is horrendous,” Bowman told The Tennessee Star. “At this point, they are just not performing. It is frustrating. You are costing kids their livelihoods. They are graduating and cannot read, write, or do basic math. It upsets me. This is unacceptable. It was a good idea to try something, yes, but at some point, you have to say wait a minute, this just doesn’t work.”...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — An Illinois state grant means new life for part of the Back of the Yards neighborhood that is well past its glory days. A stretch of Ashland Avenue near 46th Street was once dotted with retail palaces attracting shoppers and money. Now, it is full of boarded-up windows and empty buildings.

    O’HARA TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) – Daycare centers are doing everything they can to stay open, but even those that are have new regulations and stressed out parents to deal with. It’s a truly vicious cycle. One COVID case can shut down an entire daycare room. That means an entire group of parents need to keep their little ones home, but still keep paying to keep their spot.

    Metro Orlando is one of the most-visited places in the entire world, where tourists like to see the so-called "happiest place on Earth." For those of us who live here, however, it’s not the vacation paradise it’s made out to be. There’s a well-known caste system that locals have understood for decades, yet only recently has it been getting some attention from the outside world. There have been exposés in The Washington Post and Time magazine, along with a major Hollywood picture called The Florida Project. Although our local problem has gotten a national spotlight, things haven’t gotten any better for our shadow working class. In fact, since the pandemic began, it’s gotten way worse.   Many families in this area are trapped in a cycle of poverty that lasts for generations. The sick thing is that these families are indeed working—very hard. Yet because Orlando has the lowest paid labor force of any metro area in the United States and is ranked the worst in the nation for access to low-income housing, there is an epidemic of local workers and...
