ACC (Miami, FSU) and SEC (UF) forging ahead despite no football for Big Ten and Pac-12

The Atlantic Coast Conference, however, is full throttle for now.

At least that’s what Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is hoping.

The Politics of Being Cardi B

It feels like a lifetime ago, given the breakneck pace of the news and the steady erosion of our political system, but it has only been a year since rap lightning rod Cardi B sat down with Democratic presidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders in a Detroit nail salon in the summer of 2019. The polymathic force—former stripper/onetime reality star/raptress/ wife/mother/hellion—converted the salon into a backdrop for an earnest conversation around the most urgent issues facing Americans today: job creation, police brutality, a livable minimum wage, and workers’ rights. The scene was full of obvious asymmetry—Cardi’s glamour-puss persona played irreverently off Sanders’s mensch—but in many ways, it was just two New Yorkers talking about the issues of the day, with all the camaraderie of the politicking found at any Dominican bodega that dots Cardi’s native South Bronx neighborhood.

This wasn’t the

From Men’s Health

Imagine being young and healthy, a nonsmoker with no preexisting health conditions, and then waking up one morning feeling like you were being suffocated by an unseen force. Back in March, this was my reality.

I had just returned from Europe, and roughly 10 days later started having flu-like symptoms. I became weak overnight and had trouble breathing. It felt like jogging in the Rocky Mountains without being in condition, only I wasn’t moving. I went to the hospital, where I was tested for COVID-19.

I was one of the first people in Texas given a non-FDA-approved test. My results came back negative. As a social epidemiologist who deals with big data, I was certain it was a false negative.

More than four months later, the symptoms have not gone away. My heart still races even though I am resting. I cannot

Stuntman Engulfs Himself in Flames to Pop the Question to Girlfriend: ‘The Perfect Proposal’

Stuntman Proposes to Girlfriend While on Fire

This is a moment to remember

Riky Ash asked his sweetheart to marry him as he was covered in flames spreading up his back and legs.

Nurse Katrina Dobson, 48, was left speechless by the stunt, but eventually regained her composure and said yes.

Dobson knew her beau would be set alight, but thought she was just taking part in a photo shoot, and had no idea he would propose.

She was told it was for a piece about a National Health Service nurse finding love, and even turned up in her scrubs.

“He sold it to me as a story on something that would make people smile,” said Dobson, who works in the accident and emergency department. “When he was set on fire, I saw he had his hand in his pocket. I thought, ‘What are you doing, get your hand out

Biden’s VP delays are nothing new. This time, there may be an upside

WASHINGTON — After Joe Biden promised to decide on his vice presidential pick “the first week in August,” we’re still waiting for a moment that seems to have been “closing in” for days now.

NBC News reported over the weekend that the choice could come “in the middle of [this] week or sooner,” although aides warned that the only real deadline for Biden was the beginning of the Democratic National Convention. And the New York Times wrote last night that aides are preparing for an announcement in “the middle of the week” — while noting that Biden “has not been known for his punctuality so far in the presidential race and the timeline could well slip again.”

The sliding deadlines come as no surprise to anyone who lived through Biden’s deliberations over his own presidential runs in 2004 (when he eventually decided he was too late to launch a bid),

Alyssa Milano/ Instagram Alyssa Milano

Alyssa Milano is getting candid about her lingering symptoms of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Melrose Place alum, 47, shared a video on Sunday to illustrate the amount of hair loss she’s experienced as a “long hauler,” a term medical professionals use to refer to someone who suffers from long-lasting COVID-19 symptoms.

“Thought I’d show you what #Covid19 does to your hair,” Milano captioned the clip. “Please take this seriously. #WearADamnMask #LongHauler.”

In the footage, Milano combs through her hair with a detangler brush to reveal clumps of hair that fall out with every stroke. “One brushing, this is my hair loss from COVID-19,” she says as she holds up a small pile of hair.
