    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...
    Britney Spears has formally accused her father Jamie of splashing millions of her hard earned dollars while in his role as her conservator.  Court documents filed by Britney's legal team yesterday brought a number of claims against James P. Spears - referred to as Jamie - after he petitioned to have Britney pay for legal fees associated with her conservatorship.  Chief among the allegations made by Britney's lawyer were that her father paid close to $6 million from her estate to a security firm which allegedly managed to obtain private phone records of Britney's mother Lynne. The documents also allege that Jamie, 69, spent $1.5 million of his 40-year-old daughter's money on maintaining a house in Louisiana that belonged to her, before he sold it to himself. Britney's lawyers filed the claims of financial misconduct after Jamie petitioned for his daughter to cover the costs of extensive legal fees he racked up last year when he was removed as the pop-star's conservator after nearly 14 years.   The petition regarding Jamie's legal fees and other fees charged during the conservatorship are...

And he reiterated a sensational return to Sunderland could be on the cards. 2Jermain Defoe is set to make a transfer return to England this monthCredit: PA However, the Stadium of Light is one of a 'few' possible destinations.

    While speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) stated that there are already laws and rules in place to ensure people “have the right to vote. We have that.” And even though people “act like we’re going to obstruct people from voting. That’s not going to happen.” Manchin was asked, “There are a lot of people out there who are saying that you’re making it so that they’re not going to be able to vote in the next election?” Manchin responded, “The law’s there. The rules are there. And basically, the government. The government will stand behind them and make sure they have the right to vote. We have that. The things they’re talking about now are in court. Marc Elias has an awful lot in court. The courts have struck down, like in Ohio, they struck down the gerrymandering. Things are happening, okay. We act like we’re going to obstruct people from voting. That’s not going to happen.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    Major rail carrier Union Pacific is considering rerouting its trains after blasting Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon for going soft on crime amid a spike in rail car looting. UP General Director of Public Affairs Adrian Guerrero wrote a letter detailing how at least 90 rail car containers are broken into each day, with criminals being caught and released only to come back and loot again. “These individuals are generally caught and released back onto the streets in less than twenty-four hours,” Guerrero wrote. “Even with all the arrests made, the no-cash bail policy and extended timeframe for suspects to appear in court is causing re-victimization to UP by these same criminals. In fact, criminals boast to [UP] officers that charges will be pled down to simple trespassing — which bears no serious consequence.” LIBERAL BEVERLY HILLS VOTES TO RECALL DEMOCRATIC DISTRICT ATTORNEY GEORGE GASCON Around $5 million in claims, losses, and damages have been reported to UP over the past year. Video from KCBS of the looting damage shows thousands of opened...
    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) said that the economy, inflation, the border, crime, and coronavirus are the issues people are talking about and if Democrats don’t talk about them, “we are going to lose the election.” Host Martha MacCallum read from [relevant exchange begins around 1:25] an article by Doug Schoen and Carly Cooperman in The Hill, which said, “Biden and congressional Democrats need to dedicate their focus to…viable legislation that addresses voters’ top issues of concern. The administration has spent too much time wrangling members of their own party — without success — to pass policies that ultimately alienate key voting groups like Hispanic and Latino voters.” She continued, “And we’ve seen the drift in support, only 28% of Latino voters support the president at this point. So, when he talks about the need to focus on top issues of concern, and when we poll those, it’s the economy, inflation, the border, COVID, would you like to see this White House more focused — and crime, I should point out,...
    IF you want to have an easier time on the toilet, you should sit with your feet on a stool. YouTuber and educator Matthew Santoro explained the reasons for this in a video on his YouTube channel, adding that it's all about getting your colon into the optimum position. 1If you struggle on the toilet, consider raising up the feet with a stool to make the process easierCredit: Getty "You’re pooping wrong!" he began. "If you’re like most people you sit perfectly on the ring of the toilet seat to do your business. "But that position is not ideal. Our bodies are actually designed to go number two easier while squatting. "If you think about it, it actually makes sense.  "Before the invention of the toilet, that’s how people went, essentially hugging their knees the way that you would if you had to go in the forest - kind of like bears." However, just by placing the feet on a low stool - to raise the height of the knees - going to the toilet becomes a...
    Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz, who is 100% not the Zodiac Killer. Two organizations tracking anti-immigrant advertising say they’ve documented more than 700 such ads leading into the 2022 midterms, including attacks against the Biden administration over a so-called “border crisis” and content designed to undermine a vastly popular pathway to citizenship for the nation’s undocumented communities. The former is particularly shameless considering two of the previous administration’s worst policies largely shutting down the U.S. asylum system, Remain in Mexico and the debunked Title 42 public health order, are still in effect today. But that hasn’t stopped Republicans from lying. And as we get closer to Election Day, we already know it’ll only get worse. “Increasingly, these ‘border crisis’ attacks are also using Vice President Kamala Harris as their main foil: the border czar,” America’s Voice and Immigration Hub said in the report. “37 paid ads invoke the Vice President with xenophobic dogwhistles, echoed by members of Congress, such as Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Congressman Mike Johnson (LA-04). The gender and racial connotations are also quite evident.” The report notes hate group Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR)...
    New York City Mayor Eric Adams on Tuesday insisted that the district's schools will remain open despite the spread of omicron COVID-19 cases. His comments came after Michael Mulgrew, president of New York City's United Federation of Teachers, told "Good Day New York" last week that Adams was considering a remote learning option. "Our schools are open," Adams said during a Tuesday press conference. "... We were clear from the beginning — and I don't want anyone to get this mixed up — our schools are going to remain open. We are not going to do anything that is going to stop our children from going into schools. We are saying this over and over and over again. ... Our schools are going to remain open."

    New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu was on the verge of running for Senate and delivering the Republican Party its biggest recruiting coup of 2022. Then he talked it over with Republican senators. “I was pretty close,” Sununu told the Washington Examiner this month during an interview. “I wasn't ready to make an announcement, but I was like, 'OK, this makes sense. I think I could be a voice nationally.'” Everything changed after the governor consulted with Republican senators about the aspects of serving on Capitol Hill and what to expect for at least the first two years on the job. Sununu did not like what he heard. “They were all, for the most part, content with the speed at which they weren't doing anything. It was very clear that we just have to hold the line for two years. OK, so I'm just going to be a roadblock for two years. That's not what I do,” Sununu said. The governor said the message from virtually every GOP senator he chatted with — and he chatted with most of them...
    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.

    DENVER (CBS4) – Denver’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Marade is one of the largest MLK celebrations in the nation. Every year, thousands join the march and parade through the streets, honoring his life and legacy. This year, it resumed after a year off due to the pandemic. (credit: CBS) “I feel blessed to be alive in the land of the free,” one supporter told CBS4’s Mekialaya White as he walked along 17th Street and Esplanade. “We’re here to support our Black brothers and sisters, to stand in solidarity,” another chimed in. Pamela McGinnis was also among those participants. She’s been an activist for decades. “I walked with Dr. King,” she said with a smile. “Yes, freedom buses, all that. It was a lot of fun, but scary though.” (credit: CBS) McGinnis was there to witness history as Dr. King broke barriers for equality. Now, as the Senate is set to debate legislation that could affect voting rights, she’s worried about the outcome.

    Longtime Donald Trump advisor Roger Stone is dumping on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as an Ivy League 'fat boy' – in the latest sign of split between DeSantis and Trump. Stone, who has known Trump for decades and advised him informally during the 2016 campaign – then got a presidential pardon following a long legal saga amid the Russia probe – tore into DeSantis following a report the former president considers the potential rival 'dull.'   'Trump sometimes President Donald Trump hits it right on the nose.

    Natalie Geisenberger has made it official: She’s heading to the Beijing Games and seeking a third consecutive Olympic women’s luge gold medal. The German slider, generally considered the best in the history of her sport, had considered skipping the Olympics for a multitude of reasons — including human rights issues, and her belief that luge athletes were not treated well by Chinese officials when training there earlier this season. But in a social media post on Monday, the four-time world champion and eight-time World Cup overall champion laid out her reasons for deciding to compete in what presumably will be her final Olympics. “We athletes have absolutely nothing to do with the decision to award the Olympic Games to Beijing — the (International Olympic Committee) decides and we athletes are presented with a fait accompli,” Geisenberger wrote. “We only have the choice: do I fly there and give everything or do I just let my sporting dream burst so close to the end.” She chose to go and will be considered among the top medal hopefuls — along with fellow...

    Rep. Jim Jordan said he will launch an investigation into Dr. Anthony Fauci if Republicans win the House in the 2022 elections. “Yes. Yes, we definitely are," the Ohio Republican answered when asked by Fox News host Maria Bartiromo if he was going to investigate Fauci.

    If Utah was a “truly civilized” state, the governor would have deployed the National Guard to ensure those without proof of vaccination would be barred from going anywhere, the Salt Lake Tribune Editorial Board wrote Saturday. Per the article: Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor’s next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should have launched a year ago, going as far as to deploy the National Guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere. But it may be too late for that, politically and medically. “In the meantime, get vaccinated. If you are sick, stay home. And let your elected officials at all levels know that you expected them to lead us out of this mess, not stand by and meekly express concern,” the piece continued. The board also claimed there was “lots of blame to go around”: Gov. Spencer Cox and the new state epidemiologist, Dr. Leisha Nolen, let it officially be known Friday morning that there are so few tests...
    As we progress further along the path to more sustainable living, we have to take our waste stream seriously. Modern practices are stuck in a horrible rut when it comes to creating mountains of garbage. Throwing things in the garbage can—forget littering—is becoming more and more of a problem. We have an addiction to disposable stuff, take-out menus, meaningless trinketry, recycling bins, and packaging. Living this way uses up our resources for creating all of this destined-to-be garbage, and it pollutes the landscape with landfills, dumps, and litter. Of course, many of us are looking for ways to actively address this issue, but it can feel so overwhelming. That’s why it might help to take it one month at a time over the next year and see where it gets you.

    After huge spikes in infections and hospitalizations, there are signs that the omicron strain of COVID-19 is starting to recede, at least in some parts of the country.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota’s Jewish leaders are reacting to Saturday’s hostage situation at a Texas synagogue. Rabbi Marcia Zimmerman of Temple Israel in Minneapolis says the incident is concerning to Jews, and non-Jews, everywhere. READ MORE: New Film Looks At Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1961 Mankato Visit: 'It Stuck With Them'“The situation wherever you are in a house of prayer should be one of safety and security,” Rabbi Zimmerman said. “Prayer is the most peaceful act one can do.” The rabbi who was held hostage encouraged all religious groups Sunday to participate in active shooter courses. The Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas has held security seminars in conjunction with law enforcement. Steve Hunegs, the JCRC’s executive director, says security efforts need to be redoubled after the hostage situation. “We need to bring even more congregations, whatever the religion is, into the effort because collective security is so very important,” Hunegs said. But it’s a balance, Hunegs says, because places of worship should be welcoming. Zimmerman says security at her temple is both seen and unseen. “We...
    Rabbi Brian Strauss with Congregation Beth Yeshurun in Houston, Texas discussed the "frightening" hostage situation at another synagogue in his state, noting that he is now going to "reevaluate everything that we do" and increase security at his place of worship.  "It is really frightening and scary that the Jewish day of rest, the Sabbath, was disturbed for this particular synagogue of course and really for Jews all over the world," he said on "Fox & Friends Weekend" on Sunday.  "This is a day of rest, a day to thank God for all the good of our life, to be with our friends and family," Strauss told co-hosts Will Cain, Rachel Campos-Duffy, and Pete Hegseth, noting that the day of rest was "disturbed in such a horrifying way" on Saturday.  "Thank God everything worked out for the best, but it’s frightening for all of us that attend places of worship in this great country," he went on to say, referencing the fact that all four hostages at the Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, near Fort Worth, were released without injury. TEXAS SYNAGOGUE ACCUSED HOSTAGE TAKER WAS BRITISH NATIONAL  The hostage-taker, who has been identified as...
    The DC homicide clearance rate experienced an eight percent decline this year as less than half of murder cases were closed this year which criminologists attribute to the lack of trust with law enforcement amid the country's woke anti-police movement.  The lack of trust in law enforcement has been attributed to the decline in the city's clearance rate as 42 percent homicide cases were reportedly closed in 2021, according to data from DC Witness.   Criminologists have since noted that police reliability is significant staple to solving murder cases as it is necessary to speak with witnesses and conduct thorough investigations.  These specialists also noted that numbers reportedly fluctuate based on these relationships as evidenced by the intense crime rate continuing to spiral throughout the city.    The negative relationship between members of law enforcement and the community has been attributed to events such as the May 2020 murder of George Floyd after Minnesota officer Derek Chauvin sat on his neck for more than nine minutes. Movements around the country called for police departments to be defunded in response to Floyd's death...

But as the HGTV siblings revealed to Heavy, that was not always the plan. “I absolutely did not think that construction was a viable career for me,” Sherry, 34, said when speaking with Heavy. She added, “I wanted to just continue backpacking the world and do odd jobs, I didn’t really care what I did for a living.” She continued, “And then my dad finally convinced me to give, you know, the construction crew a try when I was 21 years old. I agreed and I did probably one of the hardest and the best jobs of my life and I’ve never gone back.” Her brother started when he was 14 years old. Michael Jr., 32, explained to Heavy, “He essentially said to me, ‘How’d you like to go make some money for the summer?’ and, you know, as a 14-year-old boy ‘I’d love some money.’” Falling “in love with the...
    Police are reportedly negotiating with a gunman currently holding hostages at a synagogue in Texas. The incident began to unfold live on Facebook, but the feed was soon cut by the website.

    BOSTON (CBS) — The exact reasons for such a thing to reach the public are not quite known, but a report from ESPN detailed how the Bills expect the Patriots to defend their offense on Saturday night. Reporter Dianna Russini tweeted out on Saturday morning that the Bills are expecting a man-heavy approach defensively from the Patriots, with a double team expected for all-world receiver Stefon Diggs. “The Bills are expecting the Patriots to go heavier with man coverage tonight,” Russini tweeted. “They expect the double team on [Stefon] Diggs — with Patriots JC Jackson on the other corner, they believe there is a potential for Dawson Knox and Cole Beasley to see more targets.” The Patriots, of course, play a lot of man coverage. (Injured cornerback Jonathan Jones provided a nice peek behind the curtains on that matter on Saturday.) But with Jalen Mills on the COVID-19 list, and with Kyle Dugger questionable for the game with a hand injury, one might reasonably expect some more zone defense from New England to help protect against Josh Allen and Co....
    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has revealed his biggest mistake during the COVID-19 pandemic; a mistake that will likely ruffle former President Donald Trump's feathers. On Thursday, January 13, the Republican governor appeared on the conservative podcast "Ruthless" where he revealed his biggest regrets while governing during the pandemic. DeSantis, a known Trump ally, suggested that he wasn't in favor of the national lockdown that was enforced at the onset of the pandemic, according to CNN. He recalled the early days of the pandemic and revealed he was actually involved in the White House's pandemic response, offering advice to the former president. Although the pandemic had quickly became a national crisis, DeSantis claims he was relatively shocked when Trump shut down the economy. "I never thought in February, early March, that (coronavirus) would lead to locking down the country," the Republican governor said on Thursday. "I just didn't. I didn't think that was on the radar." Per CNN, the Florida governor largely blamed Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and head of the White...

    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.

    Julia Garner is giving Lady Gaga a run for her money when it comes to bizarre European accents, as she delivers a truly fascinating mod-podge of an accent in the first trailer for Netflix’s new series from Shonda Rhimes, Inventing Anna. The Ozark actress plays infamous scammer Anna Delvey, who managed to convince a number of New York City socialites that she was an Instagram-famous German heiress, as she conned, lied, and schemed her way into hundreds of thousands of dollars from banks, as well as from the pockets of her so-called friends. But the Russian-born grifter’s house of cards folded when she was found guilty on grand larceny charges in 2019. It's a true story so wild, its villain would only naturally have an unhinged accent to match, and Garner delivers. She perhaps even knocks Lady Gaga off her throne when it comes to kooky European accents, as Gaga was forced to defend her more-Russian-than-Italian accent when playing Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci last year. Garner’s accent seems to be all over the place, but she told...
    VIDEO5:1605:16Pollster Frank Luntz says inflation has become the voting issue of 2022Squawk Box Discontent over skyrocketing inflation is the most important issue for voters heading into this year's midterm election, and Democrats are going to pay the price, according to Frank Luntz, a longtime GOP pollster and strategist. While Luntz is a Republican, he tends to take both parties to task when he feels they're missing the mark on an issue. "We're not just anxious anymore. This country is getting angry when they go to the supermarket, when they fill up their tank," Luntz told CNBC. "They're going to take that anger out at the ballot box in November," with the Democrats' slim majorities in the House and Senate at stake. Luntz said he can't fathom why President Joe Biden is trying to paint such a rosy picture of the economy while many people are struggling with higher prices against the back-drop of the hardships of the continuing pandemic and spiking Covid cases around the nation due to the highly contagious omicron variant. Voters have given Biden poor marks on...

    JAMAL LOWE has revealed how being humiliated by Edgar Davids helped drive him from non-league to the brink of the Premier League. The Bournemouth winger was an 18-year-old rookie at Barnet when Dutch legend Davids, who was player-manager, ordered him off the training pitch for making a mistake. 5Jamal Lowe is on the brink of the Premier League with Bournemouth 5Edgar Davids, humiliated a young Jamal Lowe while he was at Barnet But a decade later he has a chance of going into the top-flight with Bournemouth, having gone close with Swansea last season. Lowe told SunSport: “Davids sent me in from training after I’d done a bad pass.  “I was trying to set him to feet and the ball bobbled up and bounced to his chest.

I was devastated and didn’t know how to react. “I thought, ‘Should...

    CHARLESTON, W. Va. -- For the first time in half a year, families on Friday are going without a monthly deposit from the child tax credit - a program that was intended to be part of President Joe Biden's legacy but has emerged instead as a flash point over who is worthy of government support.Retiree Andy Roberts, from St. Albans, West Virginia, relied on the checks to help raise his two young grandchildren, whom he and his wife adopted because the birth parents are recovering from drug addiction.The Robertses are now out $550 a month. That money helped pay for Girl Scouts, ballet and acting lessons and kids' shoes, which Roberts noted are more expensive than adult shoes. The tax credit, he said, was a "godsend.""It'll make you tighten up your belt, if you've got anything to tighten," Roberts said about losing the payments.The monthly tax credits were part of Biden's $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package - and the president had proposed extending them for another full year as part of a separate measure focused on economic and social programs.But...
