A former senior Department of Homeland Security official who once accused the Trump administration of politicizing intelligence said Sunday that a return of President Donald Trump to the White House in 2024 "would be a disaster" for the U.S. intelligence community.

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said on ABC's "This Week" Sunday it's possible to provide both COVID-19 booster shots as well as doses for people who have not yet been vaccinated. "I think it is also not the right thing to try to resolve it with an 'or' when you can resolve it with an 'and,'" Bourla told ABC's George Stephanopoulos. With millions more Americans now newly eligible for a booster COVID-19 shot from Pfizer, Bourla's optimism punctuates what's become a protracted, hot-button issue amongst the scientific community over who needs the boost and when.

The 6-year-old girl who died on a ride at a Colorado amusement park earlier this month was never strapped into her seat -- and two operators failed to notice even after a monitor alerted them to a seatbelt safety issue -- before the ride plunged 110 feet, according to a state investigation. Wongel Estifanos was visiting Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, located atop Iron Mountain in Glenwood Springs, with her family on Sept. 5 when she went on the Haunted Mine Drop ride, a free-fall drop down a pitch-black shaft. After reviewing video surveillance and operating manuals, investigators with the Colorado Division of Oil and Public Safety determined that when Wongel got on the ride, she sat in a previously unoccupied seat on top of two already-locked seatbelts, and that "multiple operator errors" and "inadequate training" contributed to the fatal accident, according to a report released Friday.
As he nears 10 months in office, President Joe Biden is at a critical juncture with multiple aspects of his legislative agenda either stalled or in peril on Capitol Hill. "We're at this stalemate at the moment, and we're going to have to get these two pieces of legislation passed," Biden said Friday, referring to his infrastructure agenda. With the prospect of a government shutdown now less than a week away, the president’s infrastructure agenda is also imperiled by a standoff within his own party, bipartisan negotiations over police reform have broken down, election and voting rights reform are stalled in the face of Republican opposition, and there is currently no clear way forward on immigration reform.

"We see ourselves as multicultural: Mexican, American, Latino, Chicano, Indigenous -- We're what we call 'mestizaje,' a mixture of blood and culture," said Denise Chavez, a Chicana writer and playwright.
Russia's best-known opposition figure, Alexey Navalny, has criticized Google and Apple for bending to Kremlin demands for censorship during recent parliamentary elections, accusing the tech giants of "cowardice" and of becoming "accomplices" to president Vladimir Putin's efforts to suppress political opposition. Both companies bowed to Russian government pressure to delete content relating to a tactical voting campaign promoted by Navalny during elections last weekend that saw Russia's ruling pro-Putin party retain its majority amid accusations of widespread ballot-rigging and a crackdown on anti-Kremlin opposition.

The Chippendales are known for one of the sexiest shows in entertainment, but, in the beginning, behind the glitz and glam, greed eventually led to violence -- and murder. A new Discovery+ series, "Curse of the Chippendales," sets forth to expose the intimate details of owner Steve Banerjee's murder-for-hire plot.

Nearly 11 months after Joe Biden was elected president, the GOP-led review of Arizona's Maricopa County ballots has found no substantial deviation from the vote count reported by the county that helped clinch the win for Biden. The review's count was within a "few hundred" of the county's total, according to Republican Senate President Karen Fann. Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan reported that former President Donald Trump had 261 fewer votes than the county’s official canvass gave him, while Biden had 99 more.
Linda Evangelista recently posted on social media about what she called her suffering after undergoing a cosmetic procedure. The supermodel said in an Instagram post: "To my followers who have wondered why I have not been working while my peers' careers have been thriving, the reason is that I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq's CoolSculpting procedure which did the opposite of what it promised." Now, the iconic supermodel, who became a household name during the early '90s, is suing Zeltiq Aesthetics, the maker of CoolSculpting for $50 million, alleging that the procedure caused her disfigurement, pain and suffering, severe emotional distress and that she sustained economic losses as it rendered her "unemployable."
After more than a week of growing controversy, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas confirmed Friday that the migrant camp formed in Del Rio, Texas, has been cleared out -- but he said that more than 17,400 migrants -- mostly Haitians -- remain in the United States. "As of this morning, there are no longer any migrants in the camp, underneath the Del Rio International Bridge," Mayorkas said at a White House briefing Friday afternoon. Photos showed the once sprawling and squalid encampment emptied and the area bulldozed -- but the political problem the migrants pose has not gone away.
