AOC calls fellow Dem Joe Manchin 'patronizing' for referring to her as 'young lady' when he said she used 'awful' words to attack his opposition to $3.5T spending bill and explained he won't support it because 'it makes no sense'
Manchin appeared on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday to explain his concerns with President Joe Biden's $3.5 trillion plan for social and environmental spending, saying he won't support even half that amount. After Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat whose vote is crucial in the evenly divided Senate, first aired his concerns in an op-ed last week, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter claiming that her fellow Democrat was 'killing people' with his objections. Manchin fired back at the firebrand progressive when CNN host Dana Bash asked him about her claims, saying: 'I keep my door open for everybody. That's totally false.' 'Those type of superlatives, it's just awful. And continue to divide, divide divide,' Manchin said.
'If you travel on a plane you should be vaccinated': Fauci demands vaccine mandate for air travel and public schools in bid to reach herd immunity
Dr Anthony Fauci has said that he would support vaccine mandates for air travel and public schools, just days after deeming Biden's vaccine requirement or COVID testing measure for companies employing more than 100 people as 'moderate.' Fauci went on to say that schools had been requiring students to get vaccinated against infectious diseases for 'decades and decades.' 'I don't know what school you went to, but the school that I went to, you had to be vaccinated for measles, mumps, rubella, polio or otherwise you couldn't go to school, he said.'
Former FDA chief-turned-Pfizer board member Scott Gottlieb says COVID vaccine shots for children aged between five and 11-years-old could be approved by Halloween
American children between the ages of 5 and 11 could be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine by the end of October, according to the former head of the Food and Drug Administration. Scott Gottlieb (left), who headed the FDA under former President Donald Trump, says that the emergency use approval process for vaccinating young children could be done in a matter of weeks. Gottlieb, who sits on the board of directors for Pfizer, says the pharmaceutical giant is expected to file the paperwork with the federal government requesting authorization to vaccinate kids as early as September. 'In a best-case scenario, given that timeline they've just laid out, you could potentially have a vaccine available to children aged 5 to 11 by Halloween,' Gottlieb told CBS's Face the Nation. 'If everything goes well, the Pfizer data package is in order, and FDA ultimately makes a positive determination, I have confidence in Pfizer in terms of the data that they've collected. But this is really up to the Food and Drug Administration to make an objective determination.' Pfizer has been conducting trials of its two-dose vaccine in children over the age of two. Pfizer and BioNTech are soon planning to seek approval for their COVID-19 vaccine in children aged five to 11. Dr Özlem Türeci, chief physician for BioNTech, told German news site Der Spiegel that the companies are set to shortly release results from their study in kids under age 12 and will ask for the shot to be approved for emergency use authorization by the FDA and other agencies.

'It's segregation': Bill Maher slams NFL for playing 'black national anthem' at games and warns having different anthems for different races is dangerous
The Real Time with Bill Maher host warned that having two different national anthems, based on race, was a slippery slope to 'segregation' but 'under a different name,' he said. 'I think when you go down a road where you're having two different national anthems, colleges... have different graduation ceremonies for black and white, separate dorms... his is what I mean: segregation,' Maher said on his Friday show. 'Maybe we should get rid of our national anthem, but I think we should have one national anthem,' he added. Maher took it one step further and called out fellow liberals for creating the environment where two National Anthems would be used. 'When people say to me sometimes, 'boy, you go after the Left a lot these days, why?' I'm like 'Because you're embarrassing me!'

'What would it would take to make you happy?': Rose McGowan accuses Gavin Newsom's wife of trying to BRIBE her to keep Harvey Weinstein rape allegations quiet, slams BLM and backs Larry Elder in California recall election
Rose McGowan said she is no longer a 'Hollywood democrat' at press conference supporting Republican candidate and talk-show host Larry Elder, days after accusing Gavin Newsom's wife of bribing her in order to suppress her rape allegations against Harvey Weinstein. She said First Lady Jennifer Siebel Newsom acted as a go-between for Harvey Weinstein's lawyer and tried to bribe her so that she would not come forward. At the conference, McGowan also slammed the Black Lives Matter movement for focusing on race labels instead of 'humanity,' and likened the Democratic Party to a cult. In 2017, the former Charmed actor said someone close to Weinstein offered her $1million if she agreed to sign a non-disclosure agreement. McGowan says she refused the offer. It is unclear if Newsom's wife was the one who made the offer. She then went public with allegations that in 1997, Weinstein assaulted her during the Sundance Film Festival when she was just 23 years old. Recently, McGowan told Dave Rubin on his show The Rubin Report that Newsom's wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, called her in 2017 to try and broker a deal between her and Weinstein attorney David Boies to make the story go away. 'This is about six months before the New York Times article on Weinstein that I set up broke,' McGowan told Rubin. She added: 'And she called me on behalf of a Theranos board member... long-time lawyer of Hillary and Bill Clinton and Weinstein, one David Boies. So this woman... some blonde lady with the last name of Newsom, cold calls me and is like, "David Boies wants to know what it would take to make you happy." McGowan added: 'I don't know if it would be fiscal numeration. I don't know. Absolutely nothing would make me happy.'

Magda Hellinger (right) survived three years in the Auschwitz-Birkeau concentration camps where she was forced to work with her barbaric SS captors in roles as a 'prisoner functionary'. In a series of increasingly demanding roles she witnessed thousands of women sent to their deaths and did whatever she could to save thousands more. In permanent fear she too would be sent 'up the chimney', her role meant dealing with Joseph Mengele, remembered as the Angel of Death, Joseph Kramer, later known as the Beast of Belsen, and Irma Gres, the Hyena of Auschwitz. Magda met her husband in Auschwitz and they moved to Melbourne after the war. For most of Magda's life, few people including her children knew the extent of her ordeal. She did not seem to display emotional scars - but did have a number - 2318 - crudely tattooed on her left forearm. Her story has been told a new book called The Nazis Knew My Name based on Magda's memoir and completed by her daughter.

'World's loneliest whale': Heart-breaking footage shows 'distressed' orca banging head against tank after outliving her five babies
A distressed killer whale has been filmed banging her head against a tank at an enclosure after outliving her five babies. The heart-breaking footage was taken by anti-captivity activists at MarineLand, Niagara Falls earlier this month and shared on social media. 'Anti-captivity activists entered MarineLand and observed Kiska, their last surviving orca bashing her head against the wall. Please watch and share. 'This cruelty must end #FreeKiska,' Phil Demers, a former park employee and self-described 'whistleblower' wrote on Twitter. The Whale Sanctuary Project, which aims to end whale captivity, has dubbed Kiska as 'the loneliest whale in the world.' The 44-year-old orca was born off the coast of Iceland and has been in captivity since 1979, according to Demers. She has spent the last 10 years alone after outliving her tank mates, including her five offspring. Killer whales are extremely social animals, which in the wild live in groups or 'pods' comprising of several multi-generational families.
Honolulu to DESTROY its famous 'Stairway to Heaven' mountain trail over concerns popular Instagram site is too dangerous
Officials in Honolulu are pushing to remove a popular hiking trail and Instagram-worthy site arguing that it's too dangerous and its influx of visitors is a detriment to the local community. The site still brings in about 4,000 visitors each year, even though it's illegal to climb and violators could face $1,000 fines. The Honolulu City Council voted unanimously last Wednesday to remove the Haiku Stairs or 'Stairway to Heaven' and set aside $1million to get the job done. But not all are happy with the move and an advocacy group rallied against the council's decision on Tuesday and wants the site to be open to the public again.

After a few months of recovery from the complicated surgery, Siggi is now able run.
The real-life Bond lair... hidden in Rock of Gibraltar: 007 author Ian Fleming recruited a team to hide in cave and spy on the Nazis during WWII
The dastardly supervillain's secret underground lair is a key part of many James Bond stories. But it seems these subterranean complexes were not just the fantastical product of author Ian Fleming (bottom right)'s imagination. As cinemas prepare for the delayed premiere of latest Bond film No Time To Die, newly-released papers have revealed details of Fleming's work with a real-life hidden city - in a genuine plot to save civilisation from evil. The long-classified government documents relate to his plan for a labyrinthine network of 30 miles of tunnels inside the Rock of Gibraltar (inset) during the Second World War. Fleming recruited six men for a remarkable mission - in which they were to be walled inside a hidden room deep inside the Rock, with supplies to survive for up to seven years in the event the Nazis conquered Gibraltar. From secret viewpoints in the east and west faces of the Rock, the Britons would have spied on German naval movements between the Mediterranean and Atlantic. They would then have used a radio powered by a bicycle - with a leather chain to ensure silence -to send messages to London. In the style of Bond's gadget genius Q, Fleming also arranged astonishingly advanced rations for the secret team - including chemically self-heating soup.
