Colbert Trolls Trump’s Pathetic ‘Truth Social’ Media Platform

CBSStephen Colbert can’t believe Donald Trump is actually calling his new social media platform “Truth Social.” “The man who told over 30,000 lies in office has launched something called ‘Truth,’” the Late Show host said in his monologue Thursday night. “He’s also launched a new makeup line called ‘Human Skin.’” As Colbert explained, when the site briefly went live on Wednesday, someone started a fake account in the former president’s name and promptly posted a photo of a “pig defecating on its own scrotum.” at The Daily Beast. ...read more Source:: The Daily Beast...

Clippers fall to Warriors, red-hot Curry in opener

The last of the NBA’s 30 teams to tip off this season, the Clippers needed a feel-out quarter Thursday to find a rhythm. Once they did, they recovered, rallied and reasserted themselves as a team that refuses to go away quietly — ever. On the road at Golden State, the Clippers showed some of the same stubborn gumption that helped them come back from consecutive 2-0 series deficits in the playoffs last season. In Game 1 on Thursday, they walked through Steph Curry’s game-opening early inferno and made the Warriors’ 19-point second-quarter lead disappear before they came up short in a hard-fought back-and-forth finish, 115-113. Paul George led the Clippers with 29 points on 12-of-23 shooting. And guard Eric Bledsoe began his second stint as a Clipper and was, as advertised, a pace-pushing di

Stephen Curry awes Warriors’ first full house with 45 points, game-winning heroics

SAN FRANCISCO — Chase Center has hosted Grammy-winning recording artists since reopening to full capacity, but none of them put on the show that Stephen Curry treated a sold-out crowd to in the Warriors’ home opener Thursday night. Curry scored 45 after connecting on his first 10 attempts from the field and dropping 25 points in the first quarter, yet the Warriors still needed his fourth-quarter theatrics to prevail over the Clippers, 115-113. Curry nailed a a catch-and-shoot jumper with under a minute left to give Golden State the lead for good. Here are some quick takeaways. Big Wiggs Andrew Wiggins was the first to eschew his poor shooting through the preseason. The former No. 1 overall pick insisted he’d find his rhythm once the games began to count, and he wasn’t wrong. A sore knee si

Blanding makes her voice heard in Virginia governor’s race

The second and final debate in Virginia's closely watched governor's race had been underway for about 10 minutes when a woman started shouting from the audience. “I worked very hard to be on the ballot. I should be up on the stage!" she yelled, as Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Youngkin stood by awkwardly and NBC News moderator Chuck Todd eventually called for security and went to a commercial break. For Princess Blanding, disrupting the debate was all in a day's work. Blanding, a Black activist and educator known for her dogged advocacy for racial justice and police reforms, is making a long-shot third-party bid for governor.

High school soccer: Morgan and Ogden hope 3rd time the charm as the region rivals advance to 3A championship

Morgan and RSL Academy play in the 3A girls soccer semifinals in Sandy on Thursday, Oct. 21, 2021. Morgan won 2-1. | Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret NewsBack in August when the girls soccer season kicked off, Morgan coach Bryan Searle didn’t hesitate to declare that Ogden was the new 3A team to beat. Never mind that his team was the two-time defending state champs, he said that with a talented Ogden squad dropping down from 4A, they immediately became the new favorite. The debate will be answered once and for all in Saturday’s 3A state championship. Morgan and Ogden both won their semifinal games at Jordan High School on Thursday evening to advance to Saturday’s title game at 2 p.m. at Rio Tinto Stadium. “Like I said from the very first of the year, Ogden High is the team to beat,” said Searle.

Blank slate to best hope: Can Youngkin rescue the Va. GOP?

When Glenn Youngkin threw his hat and his cash into the Republican nominating contest for Virginia governor this year, he was a rich former private equity executive with no experience as a candidate, and few insider connections or public political views. “Most party loyalists and insiders didn’t know much about him," said Todd Gilbert, the state House minority leader, who initially endorsed a fellow lawmaker in the race. Nearly nine months later, Gilbert and much of his party have come around. Republicans from all factions of the GOP now say Youngkin may be the ideal candidate to reverse more than a decade of stinging losses in Democratic-leaning Virginia and show a path forward for a national party riddled with division after the turmoil of the Trump years. A blank slate, Youngkin has s

What is the ‘delta plus’ variant of the coronavirus?

What is the “delta plus” variant? It’s a relative of the delta variant, identified by British scientists last month. Because it isn't a variant of interest or concern, it has not yet been officially named after a letter of the Greek alphabet, like the other worrisome variants. Scientists are monitoring the delta-related variant — known as AY.4.2. — to see if it might spread more easily or be more deadly than previous versions of the coronavirus. In a recent report, U.K. officials said this variant makes up 6% of all analyzed COVID-19 cases in the country and is “on an increasing trajectory.” The variant has two mutations in the spike protein, which helps the coronavirus invade the body’s cells. These changes have also been seen in other versions of the virus since the pandemic started, ...

Gang boss in Haiti threatens to kill abducted missionaries

The boss of a notorious Haitian gang accused of kidnapping 17 members of a U.S.-based missionary group last weekend is warning that the hostages will be killed if his demands aren't met. “I swear by thunder that if I don’t get what I’m asking for, I will put a bullet in the heads of these Americans,” gang leader Wilson Joseph said in a video posted on social media Thursday. Officials said early in the week that the 400 Mawozo gang was demanding $1 million for each of those kidnapped, although it wasn’t clear if that included the five children in the group, among them an 8-month-old. Sixteen Americans and one Canadian were abducted, along with their Haitian driver. Joseph also threatened Prime Minister Ariel Henry and Haiti's national police chief as he spoke in front of the open coffins t

Sick of spam texts? So is the FCC

Photo Illustration by Zoë PetersenSick of spam texts? So is the FCC The Federal Communications Commission may soon consider a proposal that would look to stop robot spam texts. Per ZD Net, FCC Acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel has revealed new rules that would make wireless carriers — like Verizon, T-Mobile and others — block any illegal robot texts. The FCC received about 14,000 complaints in 2020 about unwanted robot texts. That number is about 9,800 for 2021. According to research from RoboKiller, spam text messages in the U.S. are higher than the number of complaints that go to the FCC. In fact, Robokiller said there were likely 7.4 billion spam text messages sent in March 2021 alone. Robocalls and fake texts increased during the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Deseret New...
