Is it “let the kids play” or not?

Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson’s exuberant bat flip after mashing a home run ultimately led to a brawl Wednesday — and the continuing of a neverending debate over what’s “fun” and what’s “showing someone up.”

Anderson showed off his power when he clobbered a home run off Kansas City Royals pitcher Brad Keller in the fourth inning, but Anderson’s subsequent bat flip didn’t sit well with Keller. When Anderson got up to bat in the bottom of the sixth inning, Keller hit Anderson with a pitch and tempers flared.

Both benches cleared and Anderson and Keller were ultimately ejected.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria and Royals bench coach Dale Sveum got into a shoving match on the side of the hubbub and were both ejected as well.

The Royals won the game, 4-3, in extra innings.

President Trump’s cooperation with Mueller probe was ‘unprecedented’: Ken Starr

Contrary to Democrat claims President Trump sought to obstruct the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, he actually cooperated to an unprecedented extent, according to former independent counsel Ken Starr.

Starr, who was the independent counsel who investigated the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky scandals during the Clinton administration, made the comment on “America’s Newsroom” Thursday:

“The president famously does not hold things back. He hated this whole thing, called it a witch hunt. But…actions speak louder than words.

“For the White House counsel to spend 30 hours answering questions of Bob Mueller and his staff is extraordinary, talk about unprecedented,” Starr said. “That’s an unprecedented level of cooperation with a special counsel investigation.”

TRUMP BLASTS RUSSIA PROBE

Starr added: “Here is a key that no one should lose sight of — Bill Clinton committed crimes. Richard Nixon committed crimes. Whatever this report shows, the bottom line is no crimes are being charged by those who are charged with making that decision — that’s the Justice Department.”

Attorney General William Barr told reporters at a morning press conference that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report recounts 10 episodes involving President Trump that were investigated as potential acts of criminal obstruction of justice. Barr said Mueller did not reach a “prosecutorial judgment” and that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded the evidence was not sufficient to establish the president committed an offense.

Barr said Trump did not exert executive privilege over any information included in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. He said the White House counsel reviewed a redacted version of the report before Trump decided not to invoke executive privilege.

Barr has said redactions in the report’s release are legally mandated.to protect four broad areas of concern: sensitive grand jury-related matters, classified information, ongoing investigations and the privacy or reputation of uncharged “peripheral” people.

On “America’s Newsroom,” Starr said: “We shouldn’t forget this all began about collusion, and so I think this will be very helpful [in] reminding us that while the Russians attempted to reach out to Trump campaign folks, apparently those efforts were not accepted or [were] rebuffed. I think that will be a big plus sign for President Trump and the integrity of the campaign.”

‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Westworld’ team with ‘Sesame Street’ to teach characters about respect

Sesame Street enlisted some very unlikely help from “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld” to teach the world the importance of respecting one another.

In a pair of videos released on Twitter, Elmo and Cookie Monster help some of TV’s most famously feuding pairs find common ground. In the first sketch, Tyrion Lannister of “Game of Thrones” takes jabs at his sister, Cersei, in King’s Landing.

“I only want what’s best for Westeros,” the character played by Peter Dinklage says in the video.

“And I only want for you to not get what you want,” Lena Headey’s character responds.

That’s when “Elmo of Sesame Street” arrives clad in armor to explain that if the duo stop fighting and work together, they’ll be stronger. After minimal convincing, they both agree. While the moment is out of character for everyone involved, it ends on a nice, family-friendly message that’s not often seen on the adult-oriented HBO drama.

The move is part of a push on behalf of “Sesame Street” to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The “Respect Brings Us Together” campaign aims to “highlight the importance of respecting one another, even in disagreement – and even in the case of some of pop culture’s favorite sworn enemies.”

In a separate video, “Westworld” characters Dolores Abernathy and Bernard Lowe, played by Evan Rachel Wood and Jeffrey Wright respectively, are bickering over the relationship between humans and hosts. Just when it seems like they’re too at odds to agree, Cookie Monster arrives to teach them about respect and, of course, to get them hooked on cookies.

“You two should respect each other and work together,” Cookie Monster says. “Respect is important for everybody People, monsters, even you robot lady!”

The company says it plans to continue rolling out similar efforts as part of the “Respect Brings Us Together” campaign. In addition to the HBO videos, the company released a new song from hip-hop artist Common accompanied by the larger cast of “Sesame Street” Muppets.

St. Jude doctors claim cure for ‘bubble boy’ disease

Westlake Legal Group st-jude-doctors-claim-cure-for-bubble-boy-disease St. Jude doctors claim cure for 'bubble boy' disease Reuters fox-news/health/medical-research/rare-diseases fox-news/health/medical-research fox-news/health/infectious-disease/hiv-aids fnc/health fnc article 6f916c58-6aa4-5e2d-b152-b7c4fc5708d8

Relying on the trickery used by the AIDS virus to infect people, doctors at two medical centers say they have cured 10 infants of so-called bubble boy disease, a genetic defect that leaves children, typically boys, without an immune system.

The technique replaces a defective version of a gene the body needs to build cells that seek out and destroy invading germs. Earlier versions of the treatment have been less efficient and also posed a risk of triggering leukemia.

MOM SAYS TODDLER NEARLY DIED AFTER ACCIDENTALLY EATING LAUNDRY POD: ‘WE GOT VERY LUCKY’

The doctors said they have skirted the leukemia problem by implanting “insulators” around the replaced gene, preventing the treatment from accidentally activating adjacent genes and causing cancer.

Three months after treatment, non-defective immune cells appeared in all but one of the treated children. That child was successfully treated with a second round of gene therapy 12 months after his initial therapy.

All have normal growth and development, and any infections they had suffered because of their disabled immune system have disappeared. There have been no signs of leukemia.

“The kids are cured because for the first time we are able to restore all three types of cells that constitute a full immune system,” lead author Dr. Ewelina Mamcarz of the bone marrow transplantation and cellular therapy center at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, said at a news conference. “Our patients are able to generate a healthy, fully-functional immune system and are now responding to vaccinations, and that’s a first for a gene therapy trial.”

Results from the first eight babies treated at St. Jude and the University of California, San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital through September 30 appear in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Those children, treated when they were 2 to 14 months old, have only been followed for 7 to 25 months, so further study will be needed to determine if there are any long-term problems.

The 10th child is due to be released from the hospital this week, about four months after treatment. It typically takes three or four months for the corrected cells to sufficiently build up the immune system to allow a child to leave isolation.

DOCTORS WARN AGAINST NEW ‘SHELL ON’ SNAPCHAT CHALLENGE

Based on the results so far, said St. Jude president Dr. James Downing, “we’re comfortable at this point stating this is cure.”

“Only time will say if this is a durable lifelong cure,” said Dr. Alain Fischer, a professor at the College of France who is also with the Unit of Pediatric Immunology, Hematology and Rheumatology at Necker Hospital for Sick Children in Paris. He was not involved in the new treatment, but helped develop an initial gene therapy for the condition 20 years ago.

The new work “is a significant step forward in the development of gene therapy and specifically for these diseases,” Fischer told Reuters Health in a telephone interview.

Earlier treatments were less efficient and less safe, although the first patient Fischer’s team treated remains alive 20 years later and is still doing well.

Bubble boy disease, formally known as X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency or SCID-X1, is a rare genetic defect that leaves the baby defenseless against infection. Treatment usually requires getting stem cells from a donor, which can be dangerous if the donor isn’t a closely-matched brother or sister. Sibling donors are usually available in fewer than 20 percent of cases.

The new technique, developed at St. Jude, involves taking some of the baby’s bone marrow and using an AIDS-type virus to inject a working copy of a gene known as IL2RG into cells. The gene makes a protein essential to building a properly-functioning immune system. The treatment cannot cause AIDS.

Mamcarz noted that “any genetic disorder with a known genetic defect is amenable to this approach.”

Some previous attempts to cure bubble boy disease have only produced temporary results. She said this treatment doesn’t seem to have that problem.

“In previous trials, waning of the immune system was observed much, much earlier – within the first year,” Mamcarz said. One patient treated with the new technique has been followed for more than two and a half years with no sign that the benefits are fading.

While small solar panels have been featured on electric cars before, including the Nissan Leaf and Fisker Karma, the Scion will be the first designed to generate enough electricity to add a significant amount of range. The plug-in vehicle has an overall range of around 150 miles and is built on a skateboard-style platform that could potentially accommodate a variety of body types.

The cars will be manufactured at an old Saab facility in Trollhattan, Sweeden, in collaboration with NEVS, the company that acquired most of Saab’s assets in 2012 after it filed for bankruptcy.

Norwegian Air says flight attendants must have doctor’s note to avoid wearing heels: report

Westlake Legal Group norwegian-air-says-flight-attendants-must-have-doctors-note-to-avoid-wearing-heels-report Norwegian Air says flight attendants must have doctor's note to avoid wearing heels: report Janine Puhak fox-news/travel/general/airlines fox-news/lifestyle fox news fnc/travel fnc article 9ed5fa02-0424-5ab9-b258-32dff8a6f46d

Ouch! Female flight attendants employed by Norwegian Air must reportedly carry doctor’s note if they want to eschew wearing high heels on duty, according to a merciless 22-page dress code that has made headlines and been mocked as being “stuck in the ‘Mad Men’ universe” in recent days.

News of the policy surfaced on April 16, The Independent reports, mandating that female staffers must have “a doctor’s note at all times and update it every six months if they want to wear flat shoes.”

Though reps for the carrier did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment, a spokesperson clarified to The Independent that flight attendants are welcome to wear flat shoes in the high skies and that the high heels policy applies to footwear outside of the cabin — for example, when greeting passengers entering or exiting the plane.

“Like all global airlines, Norwegian has a comprehensive set of uniform guidelines to ensure that our flying crew represent our brand in a smart and consistent manner,” the airline rep said, The Independent reported. “The guidelines were drafted with input from our pilot and cabin crew colleagues and have been well received, sharing many gender commonalities in addition to some specific male and female requirements.”

In addition, the dress code requires female staffers to wear eye makeup and light face makeup, though men are barred from wearing makeup, unless it’s covering acne or bruises, according to the outlet.

Critics were quick to condemn the airline’s sartorial policy as “almost comical” and “super embarrassing” in a larger sense.

“It is almost comical that we face these issues in 2019,” Ingrid Hodnebo, a spokesperson for the nation’s Socialist Left Party, told local media. “While the rest of society has moved on, Norwegian is stuck in the ‘Mad Men’ universe from the 1950s and 60s.”

Though some social media commenters, described the rule as “not a good policy” and called for people to “boycott this despicable company,” others, meanwhile, didn’t feel the decree was quite so offensive. (iStock)

“Uniform requirements are one thing, but to impose heels and makeup is going too far,” Anette Trettebergstuen, Norwegian Labour Party’s women’s spokesperson, agreed. “The year 1950 rang and it wants its rulebook back. This is super embarrassing and they should have progressed further.”

Though some Twitter commenters described the rule as “not a good policy” and called for people to “boycott this despicable company,” others didn’t feel the decree was quite so offensive.

“Nothing wrong with that! If they don’t like it they are welcome to QUIT! Just saying,” one critic quipped.

“Why is this news? It’s a private company they can require to their employees to wear whatever they want within reason,” another agreed. “It’s no different than McDonalds requiring their employees to wear a hat.”

Americans are apparently having a blast killing time as they anxiously prepare for the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report on the Russia investigation — a moment they have been waiting for since the investigation began in May 2017.

Attorney General William Barr will deliver the nearly 400-page document to Congress via CDs between 11 a.m. ET and noon. The information will be provided to the public shortly after on the special counsel’s website.

Barr gave everyone a small preview of what’s to come during an early Thursday news conference. Once again, he stressed the special counsel found “no evidence” of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

WHAT TIME WILL THE MUELLER REPORT BE RELEASED? WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT THE DOCUMENT DUMP

But there are some key details that lawmakers and the public are eager to learn more about, particularly the issue of obstruction of justice. The Mueller probe did not reach a conclusion on whether President Trump committed this offense, but Barr and deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined there was not sufficient evidence on that front.

It’s up to Barr to determine how much information Congress will see.

He confirmed Thursday he redacted any information he deemed inappropriate or harmful to a person’s character if he or she has not been charged with a crime. Classified information, grand jury items, closed-door testimony and information that could hinder an ongoing case will also be protected.

“As you will see, most of the redactions were compelled by the need to prevent harm to ongoing matters and to comply with court orders prohibiting the public disclosure of information bearing on ongoing investigations and criminal cases,” Barr said.

BARNES & NOBLE OFFERS FREE MUELLER REPORT DOWNLOAD

Though Barr claimed the redactions would be “limited,” Twitter users had a field day envisioning what the documents would look like. Dozens of redaction memes flooded the social media site Thursday — many reposting fake documents covered in black bars.

One Twitter user posted a snippet of a redacted snippet of William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18.

“Barr’s redacted version of Sonnet 18….,” the user wrote, along with a meme that revealed six words of the literature.

Another bleeped out the lyrics to Rick Astley’s popular song “Never Gonna Give You Up.”

“The redacted #MuellerReport is out! And this is what it reveals…,” a user tweeted.

Actor Rainn Wilson, known for his role as Dwight Schrute on “The Office,” also joked about potential redactions.

“They just released the Mueller Report!” Wilson captioned a meme of a document that only contained the phrases “moreover” and “in that same vein.”

“Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” used the hype about the release to promote the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on April 27.

The release Thursday of the redacted report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russia’s interference in our 2016 presidential election should mark the end of a long, expensive and pointless investigation. It was an investigation that damaged the American legal system in ways that should not be forgotten.

But don’t expect the Mueller report to fade into history in coming days. Democrats who control the House of Representatives are already demanding to see the entire report without any redactions.

The Democrats also want to see President Trump’s tax returns for the past six years, an enormous amount of other information about the president’s long and successful business career going back decades, and information about his activities and communications with aides in the White House.

BARR AFFIRMS MUELLER PROBE FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF RUSSIA-TRUMP COLLUSION, PREPARES TO RELEASE REPORT

What’s next? Demands to see Trump’s elementary school report cards?

Instead of wanting to legislate and serve the American people, the Democrats are determined to investigate, investigate and investigate some more to serve their own political needs. They are desperate to find something – anything – to deny the president a second term in office.

The truth is that President Trump is right when he says the investigation should never even have taken place and that Mueller was the wrong person to head the probe, hired the wrong people as prosecutors, and conducted the investigation improperly.

We’ve already learned from Attorney General William Barr that after nearly two years of investigation Mueller concluded there was no collusion between Trump and his presidential campaign and Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.

And we’ve learned that Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded from the Mueller report that the president didn’t obstruct justice.

The truth is that President Trump is right when he says the investigation should never even have taken place and that Mueller was the wrong person to head the probe, hired the wrong people as prosecutors, and conducted the investigation improperly.

Space doesn’t permit me to list everything Mueller did wrong. But let’s look at the Top Four most improper actions by the special counsel.

Taking the Job

Mueller never should have taken the job as special counsel.

Federal law, 28 CFR § 45.2, states: “No employee shall participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a personal or political relationship with: (1) Any person or organization substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution.”

Mueller, who served for 12 years as FBI director, knew when he took the job of special counsel that his friend and former FBI colleague James Comey – who replaced him as director of the bureau in 2013 – was at the center of the activities related to the Russia investigation. That meant Mueller would have to judge the actions of his friend and longtime associate, along with other FBI officials Mueller who had worked with.

Mueller was interviewed by President Trump for the job of FBI director one day before he took the special counsel position. That made Mueller a witness to any potential obstruction of justice charge, because Trump spoke to him about replacing Comey.

In America, you should not – or rather, cannot – be both a witness and a fact-finder.

Mueller’s decision to take the special counsel position under those circumstances must cast doubt in the mind of any fair-minded person about whether he was taking the position for partisan reasons and whether he wanted to protect Comey and his other friends.

Hiring biased prosecutors

When Mueller became special counsel, he knew divided Americans were and would be throughout his investigation.

The law says that Mueller was not allowed to consider the political affiliation of the prosecutors he hired to help him. Yet he somehow wound up with a raft full of Democrats and Hillary Clinton donors. We were supposed to believe it was sheer coincidence.

Mueller should have avoided all of that by going outside Washington to find his team. He didn’t. The hiring of biased attorneys compromised his efforts from Day One.

One-sided referrals

Mueller referred several cases of potential crimes unrelated to the Russia collusion narrative to federal prosecutors in New York City to investigate and possibly prosecute.

Yet Mueller claims he couldn’t find any unsavory evidence related to the manner in which the Russia investigation was launched by his friend Comey and the FBI. Really?

After all, Comey admitted on TV that he leaked documentation that he took (read: stole) from the FBI. That remains a crime that is in plain sight – but Mueller couldn’t find it.

Beyond that, there is no doubt Mueller reviewed the investigators’ “sources and methods” and their lack of evidence of Russia collusion. While Mueller was concluding there was no evidence of collusion, the FBI abuses of the Foreign Surveillance Intelligence Act had to be in plain sight as well.

So why didn’t Mueller make any referrals related of alleged misconduct by Comey and others in the FBI?  The answer is because he was investigating the work of his own friends and work associates. This is why he never should have taken the job of special counsel.

Prosecutorial abuse

George Washington once wrote that “I had rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world.”  Washington’s rival, King George of England proclaimed that Washington would be “the greatest man in the world” if Washington surrendered his power as head of a conquering army at the end of the Revolutionary War in favor of representative government for our new nation.

Great power, Washington believed, was often found when not exercising power. Mueller would have done well to understand that.

Instead, Mueller chose to abuse power. Using a SWAT team to arrest Trump associate Roger Stone long after Mueller surely knew there was no Russia collusion is almost as far from the principles of George Washington as possible.

Stone wasn’t the only one to be crushed under the weight of Mueller’s abuse.

Former National Security Adviser and retired Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, among others, knows of it too.

The use of the full weight of our government to intimidate and entrap Americans should never be forgotten. Nor should any of the other actions of Robert Mueller.

US Women’s National Team turns to app to maintain competitive advantage heading into World Cup

All eyes will be on the top-ranked U.S. Women’s National Team, who will be defending their FIFA World Cup title in France this summer.

As pressure mounts, players and coaches want to ensure that the American soccer team maintains its position as one of the most successful teams on the planet. A new partnership illustrates that maintaining the top spot and being on the cutting edge of performance will be through a new focus on mental health.

Major League Soccer and U.S. Soccer announced Thursday a three-year partnership with a leading meditation and mindfulness app, Headspace.

ARGENTINA ANNOUNCES PROFESSIONALIZATION OF WOMEN’S SOCCER

MLS Vice President of Player Engagement Dr. Jamil Northcutt told Fox News the partnership is about better serving the holistic needs of players and coaches.

“Meditation and mindfulness are one of many techniques to improve resiliency, mental grit and the ability to focus – all qualities athletes need on the field, but key characteristics of successful professionals off the field,” Northcutt said. “Total wellness will help players during their MLS experience and beyond.”

According to multiple studies, the use of the Headspace app has been shown to have favorable outcomes of interventions. Some of those outcomes include reduced stress, improved focus, and decreased aggression.

Lindsay Shaffer, the Head of Sports and Fitness at Headspace, told Fox News how mindfulness can help humans cope with anxiety.

“Research shows that meditation can physically change the structure of the brain, increasing the thickness of the gray matter of the prefrontal cortex – the area of the brain responsible for focus – and decreasing the size of the amygdala – which decreases our response to stress and fear,” Shaffer said.

James Bunce is the Director of High Performance for U.S. Soccer and told Fox News that teams go to great lengths to focus on their athletes’ physical performance, but that they often neglect the one thing that underlies every action a player makes: his or her mind.

SOCCER DIPLOMACY IN DIVIDED CYPRUS

“In the performance world for a long time, people have concentrated on the neck-below, on making people stronger, faster, and having more endurance, but people often forget that everything happens from the neck up,” Bunce said. “It all starts with the mind and how we make decisions, and the decisions we make, impact the neck-below.”

Professional soccer players are on the same page as Bunce when it comes to mental health and are supportive of the holistic approach toward health.

“Having played competitive soccer since a very young age, I have experienced the highs and lows that are part of being a professional athlete,” New York City FC defender Maxime Chanot said. “Having access to something that will train my mind like I train my body will help me and my teammates on and off the pitch. It is great that NYCFC and MLS are looking for new resources to help improve players’ health and wellness.”

MLS All-Star Ilie Sanchez of Sporting Kansas City echoed Chanot.

“The new Headspace app will be an extremely helpful resource that helps players sharpen their minds so that they can win the mental game and achieve overall wellness,” Sanchez told Fox News. “Through increased mindfulness and meditation that comes with Headspace, players will be better positioned to succeed both on and off the field.”

As the U.S. Women’s National Teams prepares to compete on one of the world’s biggest stages, Bunce is confident the women will “crush” it.

“Our women crush it across the board and are superb,” he said. “We are really confident that we’re going to have a great summer.”

Stars didn’t take kindly to Attorney General William Barr and his release of a redacted report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

On Thursday, Barr claimed in a contentious press conference that Mueller found no evidence of collusion between members of Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign and the Russians during the 2016 election.

“After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the Special Counsel confirmed that the Russian government-sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes,” Barr said, adding that Americans “should be grateful” for the findings.

Celebrities went wild at both the report’s release and Barr’s proclamations.

Rosie O’Donnell posted a series of tweets, retweets and replies immediately after the news broke:
