    In an interview the “Titan” comments that it will be difficult for the Major League season to be completed due to the pandemic Adrián González built a fantastic career in Major League Baseball: 2,050 hits and 1,202 runs produced over a 15-year career which included five All-Star Games, four Gold Gloves at first base, a connected hits title and an RBI title.

    My mother’s instinct kicked in the moment my sons walked in the door, with their baseball caps pulled low on their heads. Swiftly whipping away their hats, I saw that Henry, then 12, and Matt, nine, were returning home from a fortnight on holiday with their father in Belgrade with a rather unwelcome souvenir.  Their hair had been utterly butchered by a Serbian barber, who’d given them hideous mullets. There was only one person to blame: Jelena, my ex-husband’s new wife. Full of fury, I fired off an email to my ex, former CNN correspondent Brent Sadler, now 70.  Tess Stimson is pictured above with husband Brent and their boys Henry and Matt.  There’s a reason so many fairytales centre around...
    'KAMRADES' is the galvanizing word plastered on the front page of this morning's New York Post, accompanied with a picture of Kamala Harris high-fiving Joe Biden, after Biden named Harris his running mate yesterday afternoon to fight to become the first black female Vice President.  Biden made history yesterday by selecting the first woman of color to compete on a major party's presidential ticket and acknowledging the vital role black voters will play in his bid to defeat President Donald Trump. Most other papers lead with the move, with the New York Times dedicating its front page to analyses and comments on the selection, while the New York Daily News leads with another Kam-based slogan 'YES WE KAM' and a...
    Erin Parisi walks with purpose — and she has one. Parisi is over halfway to becoming the first openly transgender athlete to climb to the highest point on all seven continents, a feat called the Seven Summits that was pioneered by Dick Bass in 1985. She’s already summited Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro, Australia’s Mount Kosciuszko, Europe’s Mount Elbrus and South America’s Mount Aconcagua. Parisi sets a steady pace up the trail to Pass Creek Lake, which is nestled in the mountains of the San Isabel National Forest near Salida. A neon-green Sweet Cow baseball cap is strapped atop her 85-liter Osprey pack. Despite the trail’s steep grade, she refuses to set down her pack and pauses only briefly to catch her...
    The Big Thing It’s the end of college football as we know it. The demise won’t be obvious in the moment, but it is inevitable. Because what will prevent college football from happening this year is the same force that will bring about dramatic changes to the highest levels of the sport upon resumption. No, it’s not COVID-19, though that clearly is the issue at hand. Instead, it’s the players at the big-money schools realizing that they should have a say in how college football handles (or, more accurately, bungles) its response to the pandemic. In turn, they realized that they should have a say in everything. The players have been fed lies since day one, but the truth...
    Drug overdoses in the US are the leading cause of accidental deaths, and accidental deaths are the third-leading cause of death overall in the US - but new research suggests they remain vastly undercounted.  Researchers found that one in six deaths ruled sudden cardiac arrests that happened outside of hospitals in San Francisco were actually caused by overdoses, typically of a cocktail of drugs, usually including opioids.  And because overdose death rates in San Francisco closely mirror rates nationwide, the research team from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is concerned that overdoses across the US are similarly underestimated.  The opioid epidemic, a top public health priority, has nearly been subsumed by urgent efforts to address the coronavirus pandemic...

    More than a third of Americans said they would not get a vaccine against coronavirus at the present time even if it were to be free and approved by the FDA.  65% of those responding to the survey say they would accept the offer and get themselves vaccinated while 35% said they would not.  Those who who say they would not be happy to get the injection also runs roughly along party political lines with less than half of Republicans (47%) saying they would take the jab but with 81% of Democrats ready to line up to be inoculated, according to a new Gallup poll.  35% of Americans say they would not take COVID injection when its available according to...
    Whisper it: as we trickle back to the office, many of us are starting to realise just how much time we waste there. If home working taught us anything, it’s that we really don’t need all those team meetings, that we get more done without the endless interruptions of the open-plan office and that answering the office landline is often a pointless exercise. Imagine how wonderful it would be if you could reset your work‑life balance and spend more time with loved ones and less with your boss — just like you did during lockdown? If, instead of working 40 hours a week, you could do everything you needed to do, be just as effective (if not more so) and...

    Gerrit Cole (Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images) Watch as Gerrit Cole’s fingers stick to the brim of his hat. We all know there are little tricks that pitchers use to improve their pitches, most of them are rule-breakers but heads are turned since it’s so common amongst pitchers. One of those things is the use of things like pine tar to grip the balls better. We see it inside gloves, on arms and on hats. A fan caught a moment that appears to show Yankee’s pitcher, Gerrit Cole, using some sort of sticky substance to help grip his ball. https://twitter.com/LanceBroz/ status/1292191368404766727 The substance appears to be so sticky that his fighters stick to the brim of his hat briefly.RELATED PRODUCTNew York...

    Woe betide the student who dozed off during Professor William C. Dement's lectures. He would jolt them awake with a squirt from a water pistol and insist they stand up and recite his mantra: 'Drowsiness is red alert!' In the evenings, he would drive around campus in a golf cart he dubbed the Sleep & Dreams Shuttle, alerting first-year students to the alarming consequences of not getting enough sleep with a video showing cataplexy attacks (a condition in which the muscles suddenly go limp), night terrors (in which a sleeper screams in fear) and narcoleptic dogs stumbling around and collapsing. Dement was dubbed the 'father of sleep science' during a lifetime's devotion to a hitherto under-researched subject that accounts for...

    Jeff Johnson was in a hurry. His lunch break was nearing its end, and he needed to catch the 6 train back to Union Square, where he worked an entry-level job at the publisher Farrar, Straus & Giroux. He flew down the stairs to the subterranean clinic on New York’s Upper East Side, into a Bond-chic windowless cave of an office. He greeted the nurse—lab technician?—he wasn’t sure which, and ducked into an exam room stocked with straight pornography he wouldn’t use. The year was 1974. The clinic, Idant, had opened three years earlier, one of the country’s first commercial sperm banks. Johnson had heard through a friend that they were seeking men with twice the average sperm count....

The Reuters investigation found facial recognition cameras at 33 of the 75 Rite Aid shops in Manhattan and the central Los Angeles metropolitan area during one or more visits from October through July. Among the 75 stores Reuters visited, those in areas that were poorer or less white were much more likely to have the equipment, the news agency´s statistical analysis found.  In Los Angeles, Tristan Jackson-Stankunas spoke out to say that said Rite Aid wrongly fingered him as a shoplifter based on someone else's photo.  When confronted with the information from...

    Ten former and one current employee of Ellen's talkshow claim they faced bullying and racism behind the scenes and that they were even fired for attending family funerals.  The show, which has been airing since 2003, has built a brand around the compassionate slogan of 'Be Kind', which ranges from dishing out cash to people who appear on the show and instituting wider charity initiatives.  However, many of the former staffers claim it's 'all for show'.  'That 'be kind' bulls**t only happens when the cameras are on.

    First daughter Ivanka Trump has long tried to depict herself as a “moderating” influence on President Donald Trump, but the president’s niece is now calling B.S. on that narrative. In an interview with the Washington Post, Mary Trump shoots down the notion that Ivanka works behind the scenes to smooth out her father’s rough edges, and instead says that the president’s eldest daughter is more of an enabler than anything else. “She doesn’t do anything,” Mary Trump said. “She spouts bromides on social media, but either she tries to have an impact and fails, or just isn’t interested in having an impact.” The president’s niece added that, “I can’t think of one thing she’s done to show that she’s moderate or a moderating influence.”...
    The family of a tech tycoon have begged the NYPD to capture his 'evil' killer after the 33-year-old was dismembered by a hitman in a ninja outfit.

    AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — This week some signs in Texas urged voters to wear masks. Polling precincts were already staffed thin because a number of election workers backed out of the state’s primary runoffs. By and large, most voters covered their faces, even though Texas’ mask mandate exempts polling locations. Others adamantly made clear they wouldn’t. “It’s kind of along the same lines you see in other parts of Texas — there is a faction they’re not going to wear a mask unless absolutely required,” said Melynn Huntley, Potter County’s elections administrator. “And even then, they’re going to try not to.” Two weeks after Republican Governor Greg Abbott ordered most of the state’s 30 million residents to wear masks, Texas is...

    (CNN)Poll of the week: A new Gallup poll puts President Donald Trump's approval rating at 38%. His disapproval rating stands at 57%. The average poll similarly shows Trump's approval rating hovering around 40%, while his disapproval rating is above 55%. What's the point: Trump's approval rating isn't getting any better. In the polls, he is continuing to lose to former Vice President Joe Biden by double-digits. Trump could win a second term, but there is no clear path to doing so. If Trump does go on to lose in November, he doesn't just need to worry about losing to Biden. Trumps needs to worry about the fact that the history books are probably going to put him down as a...
    PITTSBURGH, PA - SEPTEMBER 16: Mitchell Schwartz #71 of the Kansas City Chiefs (Photo by Joe Sargent/Getty Images) Mitchell Schwartz is one of the best linemen in football, and it’s high time we put some respect on his name.  Playing right tackle in the NFL, as Kansas City Chiefs star Mitchell Schwartz knows first hand, is a rough and tumble life. You rarely get the recognition you deserve, even if your play warrants it. When Patrick Mahomes’ best offensive lineman was once again disrespected in an ESPN ranking, Mitchell’s older brother, former NFL lineman Geoff Schwartz, went scorched earth on the worldwide leader. The elder Schwartz unloaded on ESPN after his little brother was ranked outside of the top 10...

    Hollywood stars rarely live up to their on-screen reputations but Warren Beatty even had trouble keeping up with his offscreen one. Before he took phone calls, the film world’s most notorious lothario would do a hurried set of squats holding 20lb weights in each hand so that when he picked up the receiver he’d be out of breath. His assistant, Susanna Moore, eventually realised the reason for this.  ‘He wanted the person on the phone, presumably but not certainly a girl, to think he’d been interrupted while making love,’ she says.  Nicholson, pictured above, seduced Moore. In a funny but shocking new memoir, Miss Aluminium, she provides an insider’s account of the seedy, amoral reality of Hollywood in the 1960s...

The elder Safronov, who also was named Ivan, wrote for the newspaper Kommersant until one day in 2007 he plunged out of a window to his death. The younger Safronov never believed the official conclusion that his father committed suicide. Neither did colleagues at Kommersant. “Defenestration,” pushing people out of windows and blaming accidents or suicide, is viewed as a common, if conspicuous, technique allegedly used by...
    Japanese researchers have turned to the world's fastest supercomputer to help test the effectiveness of different COVID-19 mitigation tactics. The Tokyo-based scientific research institute Riken devised a series of complex simulations to observe how SARS-CoV-2 might spread indoors, and created a list of suggestions to limit transmission based on those simulations. The researchers enlisted Fugaku, the $1billion supercomputer that was crowned the world's fastest supercomputer in June, to conduct the simulations. Researchers in Japan used a supercomputer to test public health measures to lower COVID-19 transmission and found limiting number of people in train cars in combination with proper ventilation was effective Fugaku features 158,976 custom ARM processors, each of which have 48 CPU cores, and which can collectively...

It’s a victory for the city that was the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak and at the height of the crisis saw 71 percent of COVID-19 tests come back positive. 'Most importantly, percentage of people testing citywide positive for COVID-19, threshold of 15 percent – and today, the lowest we have ever seen, one percent.

    Formula One's divisions came to the fore on Sunday as a number of drivers chose not to take a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement moments before the season opener in Austria.  Drivers had been divided over whether to take the knee - a gesture to end racial inequality after African-American George Floyd was killed under the knee of a white policeman -  in the moments leading up to the race after seven months off due to the coronavirus crisis.

    It hasn’t even been a week since the story of Russia offering bounties for the death of American soldiers in Afghanistan first broke. That initial story suggested that the information had been known since spring, but was unclear about when Donald Trump had been informed or whether Russia had actually followed through in its proxy war against the United States. However, since then the story has grown daily. It’s now clear that the program has been in place for over a year, and that Trump was personally briefed on the threat by John Bolton in March of 2019. If that wasn’t enough, the program was also featured in subsequent daily briefs, including on February 27 when Trump had a tough schedule...
    The news that President Trump is planning to stage a “massive fireworks display” before a sizeable crowd on Independence Day eve at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial (notwithstanding the prospect of both wildfires in the tinder-dry surroundings and the further spread of Covid-19) has left me mulling over once again the possible creation of another such epic-scale monument. Maybe it could even be incised into a nearby ridge in the same Black Hills area of South Dakota as the original, if the Lakota Sioux could be convinced to allow it, which they certainly didn’t the first time around. After all, back in the late 1920s, less than three decades and not 70 miles from the site of the ultimate treachery of the Wounded Knee massacre,...
