    A wife of a gravely ill father-of-two slammed a Boston hospital for taking her husband off the heart transplant list because he's unvaccinated, stating they have been pushed into a 'corner' and 'pressured' to 'choose a shot that could kill him.'   Heather Dawson, wife of DJ Ferguson, 31, who has a hereditary heart condition that causes his lungs and heart to fill with blood and fluid, has slammed the Boston Brigham and Women's Hospital for denying a life-saving organ transplant to her husband because he is unvaccinated.  The hospital said it removed Ferguson from the donor list because all transplant recipients needed to be vaccinated in order to 'create both the best chance for successful operation and also the patient's survival after transplantation.'   Dawson said Ferguson was already 'high risk' for the vaccine due to his swollen heart. The mRNA vaccines have been found to cause temporary swelling of the heart and are typically seen in 'male adolescents and young adults,' according to the American Lung Association.  'He is at extremely high risk of sudden death if it does,' she wrote,...
    Embattled Chief of Staff Ron Klain suggested on Tuesday his time at President Joe Biden's side in the Oval Office could end in the near future, possibly by the end of 2022. The White House aide, 60, has been grappling with a slew of reports indicating key Democrats in Congress are unhappy with his work, and a new profile on Klain published in the Washington Post sheds light on how that divide could cost Biden even more of his agenda.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's reported frustration with Klain, stemming from his hand in negotiations over passing Build Back Better and the bipartisan infrastructure bill, could be a problem if Biden loses favor with the most powerful Democrat in Congress with less than a year before the midterm elections. And the report claims that West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin's public complains about how White House staff treated him are mainly aimed at Klain. The moderate Democrat had previously said that his treatment by White House staff was a large factor in why he killed Biden's $1.75 trillion Build Back Better bill...
    Prince Andrew and his ex-wife were seen driving away from Royal Lodge today as the embattled Duke gets set to fight claims of rape and sexual assault in the US courts as a private citizen. The 61-year-old drove his Range Rover through the Windsor Estate with Sarah, Duchess Of York with their dog in the back seat.  The sighting comes just days after it emerged Andrew could lose his round-the-clock police protection as early as next month after he was exiled as a frontline royal. Sources say a full review of his security is being carried out by Scotland Yard and the Home Office following last week's decision by the Queen to strip her son of his remaining military and charitable affiliations and stop him using his HRH title.  A close associate of the Duke has now claimed he could have his royal patronages restored if he wins the civil case against him while The Queen is alive - but it would be 'less predictable' if Charles was the monarch. But the source suggested that any potential return would be a different...
    Prince Andrew could lose his round-the-clock police protection as early as next month after he was exiled as a frontline royal.

    As Wisconsin lawmakers argue on rules to pass voting rights legislation, Republican senator is learning the consequences of online polling. Not sure what outcome Ron Johnson expected to see, but it clearly wasn’t this one. On Jan. 18 Johnson created a Twitter poll— open to all— asking if one wanted to “IMPLODE the filibuster so that Dems can RAM their voting rights legislation through Congress?” While he probably thought the poll would work in his favor, boy was he wrong. Not only was the poll open to anyone to vote, but it was posted on Twitter, a platform known for its liberal views and wide range of audiences.

    RALF RANGNICK admits he could look to deploy a three-man defence at Manchester United. The interim Red Devils boss has seen his new side struggle to adapt to his 4-2-2-2 formation. 2 And Rangnick is now ready to shake things up as he seeks to save the season with a bold 3-4-3 system. David De Gea is safe as United’s No1 ahead of Dean Henderson. And Rangnick’s three centre-backs are likely to be Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire either side of Raphael Varane. At wing-backs, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw appear to be favoured by Rangnick. And a central midfield partnership of Scott McTominay and Fred looks likely too.

    Novak Djokovic will plead his case in front of a judge today in a last-ditch attempt to stay in Melbourne and contest his 10th Australian Open Title. Lawyers for the Minister of Home Affairs filed their submissions at 10.30pm on Sunday - less than 12 hours before the case will be heard in the Federal Court. The government maintains the decision to tear up Djokovic's visa was correct on the basis he failed to justify his purported medical exemption. Even if Djokovic is successful in his visa battle, lawyers for the government say they could cancel his visa again, leaving him in perpetual limbo just a week before the Open begins. Their submission claims Djokovic is of a 'greater health risk' of spreading the virus than an vaccinated person, and that infecting others would 'burden the health system'.  Novak Djokovic (pictured with Tennis Australia boss Craig Tiley in 2021) is set to learn his fate after a whirlwind trip to try and defend his Australian Open title - which would make him the most successful men's player of all time...
    In an interview with the Daily Beast's Molly Jong-Fast, Stephen Marche, author of The Next Civil War: Dispatches from the American Future , described a decision by Donald Trump administration in the last year of his four-year term as "genuinely insane" and one that could come back to haunt New York City. At issue, Marche told the host as part of her New Normal podcast, was the federal government pulling the plug on building a much-needed seawall that would protect Manhattan in the event of a possible hurricane that would devastate the city's infrastructure. As the New York Times reported back in February of last year, "The Trump administration has unexpectedly halted a project to protect the New York City region from flooding during dangerous storms like Hurricane Sandy — a decision that came six weeks after President Trump took to Twitter to ridicule the study’s most expensive proposal, a giant sea wall that could have cost billions of dollars." The report continued, "While Mr. Trump cannot single-handedly cancel a Corps project — the funding is allocated by Congress, and...
    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Evening Edit,” Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) stated that if the Biden administration wanted to implement a federal vaccine mandate, they could have gone to Congress at the time, and they could still go to Congress now, but they won’t because they know Congress won’t pass such a mandate. Harris said, “[T]here’s no reason why the administration didn’t go to Congress. Congress was in session. Again, the Senate is in session now. The House will be in session next week. They could go to Congress and ask for that authority, but they know they won’t get it from Congress. Because it’s an inappropriate use of federal authority.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    Getty Ravens LB Bart Scott sacks Ben Roethlisberger As the illustrious 18-year career of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger draws to a close, some of his most worthy adversaries — past and present — have bid a (mostly) fond farewell to the future Hall of Famer. Ryan Mink, staff writer for BaltimoreRavens.com, compiled comments from players and coaches about Roethlisberger, whose final regular-season game will be on their turf this Sunday, January 9, in Baltimore. Ed Reed, one of the greatest safeties to ever play the game, had this to say about Ben Roethlisberger: “The dude was just a competitor, one of those ultimate competitors. Big Ben always gave them a chance. Congrats on a great career, and good luck after football. See ya in Canton.” Many believe Roethlisberger to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. Per the Pro Football Hall of Fame, a player must have been retired at least five years before he can be considered, meaning Roethlisberger will first be eligible in 2028. Reed was enshrined in 2019.

    The widow of a biochemist who was driven to suicide when he feared Elizabeth Holmes was going to fire him has said she is worried the Silicon Valley villain could be spared jail. Rochelle Gibbons said she was concerned Holmes, 37, could be allowed to serve her jail term under house arrest following her conviction on four fraud charges on Monday.  'She lives in a £100million estate. How is that punishment?', Mrs Gibbons told The Times. 'I'm hoping that she gets ten years [in prison] or more than that.'  Dr Ian Gibbons, a Cambridge-educated British biochemist who became Theranos chief scientist in 2005, took a fatal overdose in 2013 after becoming convinced that Holmes would sack him because he challenged her grandiose claims about her blood-testing machine. On Monday, Holmes was convicted on four counts of wires fraud after a jury in San Jose found that she deceived investors into sinking more than $945 million into her faulty blood testing machine.  Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years - though she is expected to serve each count concurrently -...
    When Matt Nagy coaches the Chicago Bears in their season finale Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium, it will be four years to the day since general manager Ryan Pace introduced him at Halas Hall as the team’s new coach. “Matt’s a proven leader,” Pace said then of Andy Reid’s former assistant coach and coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs. “He’s a winner. He’s intelligent. He’s innovative. He has strong character. He has a great family, and he shares the same passion for the game that I have.” Some of those statements have proved to be true over the last four years. One of them, about winning, has not been true enough. Nagy enters what is likely his last game as Bears coach Sunday with a 34-30 record, plus two playoff losses. No matter the outcome of the game, which has no playoff implications for either team, the Bears will finish with a losing record for the first time in his tenure. Nagy has had one winning season — the 12-4 run to the NFC North title...
    NOVAK Djokovic's wife Jelena has broken her silence after her husband was banned from entering Australia - saying she "wishes" she could be with him. The anti-vax tennis ace, 34, was stopped at the border as he tried to enter the country to compete in the Australian Open. 3Novak Djokovic's wife Jelena says she 'wishes' she could be with himCredit: Getty 3Jelena shared this pic of the couple to InstagramCredit: Instagram He sparked controversy after being granted a vaccine exemption to enter Australia but his visa was then sensationally revoked - and he was whisked away to a detention centre at a 'filthy' Melbourne hotel. Djokovic's wife Jelena shared a picture to Instagram of the couple kissing on a beach with the caption: "It’s Christmas today for us, my wishes are for everyone to be healthy, happy, safe and together with families.

    CHELSEA fans know what they are getting with Mason Mount or Antonio Rudiger. But Hakim Ziyech remains something of an enigma even though he has been at the club for more than a year now. 3Hakim Ziyech could be like a new signing for ChelseaCredit: Getty 3Ziyech starred as Chelsea beat Tottenham in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final 3Ziyech has been a bit-part player since his move to Chelsea but he has shown flashes of his quality With only four complete matches out of 19 appearances under his belt this season, the waspish winger looks the classic bit-part squad player. When you watch him produce the kind of performance he did against Tottenham on Wednesday it only raises questions about life for him at Chelsea. The number-crunching boffins tell us that the Moroccan star produced six crosses and 30 passes from 56 touches of the ball. One of those was the free-kick which forced Japhet Tanganga into the calamitous error that sealed Chelsea’s 2-0 win. A pinpoint delivery of a cross with his impressive left foot that...
    An explosive email sent by Australia's federal health minister warned Tennis Australia that a previous Covid infection would not see players granted a vaccine exemption, an oversight believed to have locked Novak Djokovic in a bitter legal dispute. The world's best tennis player touched down in Melbourne late on Wednesday night to compete for a record 10th Australian Open title, only to be informed his medical exemption was not sufficient. Djokovic now faces deportation back home, and is under police guard in a hotel in the CBD while his lawyers fight for his right to play. Now the letter sent by Greg Hunt to Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley at the end of November has emerged, showing the health minister warned Australian Open officials that a recent infection would not grant players an exemption. 'The Australian Border Force has advised that people must be fully vaccinated, as defined by ATAGI (the national advisory body on vaccines) to gain quarantine-free entry into Australia,' Mr Hunt wrote. 'In relation to your specific questions, I can confirm that people who contracted Covid-19 within...
    Prince Andrew could have avoided his on-going sexual assault lawsuit if he had apologised to his accuser Virginia Giuffre Roberts years ago, sources have claimed. The second son of Britain's Queen Elizabeth is currently facing the prospect of appearing in a New York court to face the allegations, after Ms Roberts brought a civil lawsuit against him. Virginia Giuffre Roberts claims the Duke of York slept with her three times when she was 17. Andrew has repeatedly and strenuously denied the allegations over the years. 'Virginia has always just wanted the prince to acknowledge that he did something he shouldn't have, she wants him to apologize. She has never made this all about money,' a source close to Ms Roberts told the New York Post.  'I think she would have dropped this a long, long time ago had the prince said he was guilty of wrongdoing, but he's embroiled in denial which has brought him down.'   Pictured: Britain's Prince Andrew, Duke of York attends the Sunday service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor, England, in April 2021. Andrew could...
    Tennis world number one Novak Djokovic may still be banned from entering the country to defend his Australian Open crown, despite being granted a medical exemption. Calls are increasing for the tennis superstar to personally explain how he got approval to enter Australia to contest the Melbourne grand slam later this month without showing his vaccination status. Djokovic, 34, is due to arrive in Melbourne on a flight from Serbia on Wednesday night. But Foreign Minister Karen Andrews has warned border authorities could step in. 'Any individual seeking to enter Australia must comply with our strict border requirements,' Ms Andrews said in a statement on Wednesday afternoon.
    MANCHESTER UNITED interim manager Ralf Rangnick may prove to be "one of the worst appointments in Premier League history". That is according to former Arsenal winger Perry Groves, who believes United made a major mistake hiring Rangnick as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's replacement. 1Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has been criticised by Perry GrovesCredit: Getty The Red Devils lost 1-0 to Wolves at Old Trafford on Monday with Joao Moutinho's winner sealing the German head coach's first loss in charge of the Manchester giants. Although results picked up ever since the former RB Leipzig manager's arrival, the performances have still left much to be desired. They barely won against Crystal Palace and Norwich and were lucky to scrape a point away at struggling Newcastle. Groves told talkSPORT: "I think he could go down as one of the worst appointments in Premier League history. "The players, you can tell that they're not having Rangnick. "You can tell that they're not convinced by him. They're not actually putting the effort in they should be." FREE BETS: GET OVER £2,000 IN NEW CUSTOMER...

    ROMELU LUKAKU'S Chelsea career is hanging in the balance with crunch talks taking place today between the striker and boss Thomas Tuchel. The Belgium international was dropped for Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Sunday after his explosive comments in an interview with Sky Italia last week. 3Lukaku has revealed that he is not happy at Chelsea and is already eyeing a move away from the clubCredit: PA His teammates are thought to been unimpressed with his outburst and he now has little backing at the club - which does not bode well for the Belgian. Despite Tuchel claiming there is still a way back for Lukaku at Stamford Bridge, he admitted was furious with the 'noise it caused', which could spell the end. If Chelsea decide to part ways with their record signing in January, the obvious course of action for the 28-year-old hitman would be a return to Inter. But the reason he was sold in the first place was to help resolve the club's desperate financial situation, effectively ruling out a move back to the...

    A SECRET deal between Jeffrey Epstein and his “sex slave” Virginia Roberts Giuffre is set to be made public tomorrow. The 2009 settlement had been kept under seal, but judges last month ordered it to be released on January 3 unless “good cause” could be shown otherwise. Rex Features 4 Prince Andrew and Virginia Roberts, aged 17, at Ghislaine Maxwell’s townhouse in London, in 2001 BBC 4 The prince during his Newsnight interview with Emily Maitlis Prince Andrew, 61, maintains that a clause in the agreement precludes him from being sued by Virginia – who alleges he sexually assaulted her three times when she was 17.

    (CNN)Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has said that Monday Night Football's crucial game against the Cleveland Browns could be his last at Heinz Field. Nearing the end of his 18th season in Pittsburgh, the 39-year-old has the fifth most passing yards in NFL history -- his 63,721 yards putting him second only to all-time leader Tom Brady among active players and over twice as many as any other previous Steelers quarterback.Yet any hopes of catching Brett Favre in fourth look set to be dashed, with Roethlisberger indicating that -- while he doesn't speak in "definites" or "guarantees" -- Monday will be his last regular season outing in Pittsburgh. "Looking at the bigger picture, I would say all signs are pointing to this could be it -- regular season, that is," Roethlisberger told reporters on Thursday. "I know we still have a chance to potentially get a playoff game there if things fall our way and we take care of business and things have to happen. But, in the grand scheme of things -- in terms of regular seasons -- signs...
