Deroy Murdock: What makes Biden run? Will ‘Sleepy Joe’ have stamina to confront Trump?

Victorious presidential candidates need fire in the belly. Joe Biden’s burns as brightly as a birthday candle.

What makes Joe run? Why does this former vice president, age 76, seek the White House? Biden asked himself this very question.

“Could I die happily not having heard ‘Hail to the Chief’ play for me?” Biden wondered aloud last month in Prole, Iowa. “Yeah, I could,” he answered, and explained, “It’s really, really, really important that Donald Trump not be reelected.”

Why does this former vice president, age 76, seek the White House? Biden asked himself this very question.

Would he be a candidate absent President Trump? Biden said, “I’m not sure, to be quite honest with you.” And what about serving as president? Biden said: “The longer I’ve been around, the less that appeals to me. I’ve watched up close and personal what eight years in the White House is like.”

Biden’s recent comments seem almost plagiarized from his remarks on July 18, 2013:

“I can die a happy man never having been president of the United States of America,” Biden told GQ magazine.

Ronan Farrow claims MIT concealed Jeffrey Epstein donations despite sex offender conviction

Ronan Farrow published a new expose Friday alleging that Jeffrey Epstein continued to donate to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab despite before a “disqualified donor” because of his sex offender conviction.

In his report published in The New Yorker, Farrow claims that the elite university continued to accept gifts from Epstein and marked them as anonymous to avoid “disclosing their full extent, both publically and within the university.”

“Perhaps most notably, Epstein appeared to serve as an intermediary between the lab and other wealthy donors, soliciting millions of dollars in donations from individuals and organizations, including the technologist and philanthropist Bill Gates and the investor Leon Black,” he wrote.

Farrow said Epstein was credited with securing at least $7.5 million in donations – including $2 million from Gates and $5.5 million from Black.

A spokesperson for Gates told The New Yorker that “any claim that Epstein directed any programmatic or personal grantmaking for Bill Gates is completely false.” Meanwhile, Black declined to comment.

Farrow then alleges that the MIT Media Lab went to great lengths to hide its relationship with Epstein, including only identifying him by his initials for any meetings scheduled with the lad’s director.

“The effort to conceal the lab’s contact with Epstein was so widely known that some staff in the office of the lab’s director, Joi Ito, referred to Epstein as Voldemort or ‘he who must not be named,’” Farrow continued, referencing the moniker used for the villain in J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S ECCENTRIC, EXPLICIT TASTE IN ART SEEN IN PALM BEACH MANSION RAID VIDEO

Signe Swenson, a former development associate and alumni coordinator at the lab, told Farrow that the lab’s leadership made it explicit that any donations from Epstein had to be kept secret. She recalled Ito said that “we can take small gifts anonymously.”

Swenson said she resigned in 2016 due to Epstein’s involvement, telling Farrow that Epstein was accompanied by two young women at a meeting with the lab’s leadership. She said she and other staff were fearful of the women’s safety.

“We literally had a conversation about how, on the off chance that they’re not there by choice, we could maybe help them,” she said.

The university revealed last month that it had accepted $800,000 from Epstein’s foundations over 20 years and has apologized for it.

“With hindsight, we recognize with shame and distress that we allowed MIT to contribute to the elevation of his reputation, which in turn served to distract from his horrifying acts. No apology can undo that,” MIT’s president, L. Rafael Reif, said in a statement.

A university spokesman told The New Yorker that they are “looking at the facts surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s gifts to the institute.”

Fox News’ request for comment was not immediately returned Saturday morning.

Epstein, 66, died last month in his prison cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City from suicide. He was awaiting trial for the alleged sexual abuse of dozens of young girls in his Upper East Side townhouse and his waterfront mansion in Palm Beach, Fla., between 2002 and 2005.

Trump claims ‘nasty’ Washington Post reporters shouldn’t be allowed at White House after ‘fake’ reporting

Westlake Legal Group AP19248767224717 Trump claims ‘nasty’ Washington Post reporters shouldn’t be allowed at White House after ‘fake’ reporting fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/politics fnc de7a7020-0a5a-57b3-8b24-b81020490380 article Adam Shaw

President Trump on Saturday started his weekend with a furious tweet aimed at two Washington Post reporters who he said shouldn’t be allowed on White House grounds after the paper published a report detailing what they described as Trump’s “lost summer.”

The Post angered the White House with an article published this week called “Trump’s lost summer” which outlined what some aides described as a summer “defined by self-inflicted controversies and squandered opportunities.”

WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS RIP WASHINGTON POST IN SCATHING OP-ED ‘AN OFFENSIVE, EGREGIOUS AFFRONT TO TRUE NEWS JOURNALISM’

Trump took aim at White House reporters Ashley Parker and Philip Rucker, who were the authors of the article.

“The Washington Post’s @PhilipRucker (Mr. Off the Record) & @AshleyRParker, two nasty lightweight reporters, shouldn’t even be allowed on the grounds of the White House because their reporting is so DISGUSTING & FAKE,” he tweeted.

Rucker’s new nickname “Mr. Off the Record” appeared to be a reference to claims spread by members of Trump’s circle that he was responsible for repeating off-the-record comments about Trump’s family made by former White House aide Madeleine Westerhout. Westerhout resigned last week, reportedly after those comments got back to the White House.

The Washington Post did not immediately respond to a Fox News request for comment about the contents of the Trump tweet, but it recently backed Rucker over the claims when they first emerged, telling Politico in a statement that Rucker “has always acted with the utmost honor and integrity and has never violated Washington Post standards or policies.”

In the tweet, Trump linked to a Washington Examiner op-ed by White House press secretaries Stephanie Grisham and Hogan Gidley that slammed the Post piece as “an offensive, egregious affront to true news journalism.” Their op-ed was called “The Washington Post’s lost summer” and laid out what the White House sees as misteps and errors by the Post.

“From Memorial Day to Labor Day, the Post had some pretty embarrassing moments,” Grisham and Gidley wrote. “Whether it was incorrectly stating that presidents do not deliver remarks on the Fourth of July, ignoring speeches by Presidents Reagan, Kennedy, and Obama, or being called out for shoddy, politically motivated fact-checking, the Post’s lost summer culminated with a fateful day in August when it was forced to issue 15 corrections to a single article.”

It also pushed back on the claim that Trump has not scored a number of achievements over the summer.

TED CRUZ BLASTS NEW YORK TIMES: ‘PROPAGANDA OUTLET BY LIBERALS, FOR LIBERALS’

“The truth is, Trump racked up many well-documented victories that directly benefited the American people at home and abroad,” they wrote. “When the Post asked, the White House proudly provided it with a detailed list of the administration’s 26 most important successes of the summer. Of those 26 accomplishments, the Post chose to publish just four, which it buried under 11 paragraphs of editorialized critique.”

The Post, however, doesn’t agree with Grisham and Gidley’s op-ed.

“Our story prominently noted the White House’s list of accomplishments and quoted a White House spokesman at length,” a Washington Post spokesperson told Fox News on Friday. “It also reported the views of Republicans, both on the record and on background, some of whom are part of the administration and some who watch its performance from a distance. Readers can judge for themselves whether our account fairly represented a variety of perspectives on the president’s summer.”

The op-ed received some backlash from critics who pointed out that several of the accomplishments listed by Grisham and Gidley were covered by the paper, but it appears the White House staffers were complaining only about Rucker and Parker’s piece, specifically. It went on to say that the Post ignored 84 percent of Trump’s “actual summer accomplishments.”

Grisham and Gidley added that the Post “wasn’t alone this summer” and mocked The New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet for recently telling staffers to pivot from Russian collusion to a “more head-on story about the president’s character.”

On Saturday, Trump added one more achievement to his list: the appointment of MANY Federal Judges this Summer!”

Iran seizes boat with Filipino crew suspected of smuggling fuel in Persian Gulf

Westlake Legal Group stena-impero Iran seizes boat with Filipino crew suspected of smuggling fuel in Persian Gulf Robert Gearty fox-news/world/world-regions/middle-east fox-news/world/conflicts/iran fox news fnc/world fnc eb0ce0b5-7265-55fd-bd44-c8e7356dc277 article

Iran seized a tugboat and detained its 12 Filipino crew members on suspicion of smuggling diesel fuel in the Persian Gulf, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported Saturday.

The U.S. Navy 5th Fleet was aware of the report but declined further comment, Cmdr. Joshua Frey, a spokesman, said.

In Manila, the Philippines’ Department of Foreign Affairs said it was checking out the report.

The tugboat was suspected of carrying nearly 284,000 liters of diesel when it was seized near the Strait of Hormuz, Reuters reported quoting Iran state television.

The report did not say what national flag the vessel was flying, according to Reuters.

US TREASURY SANCTIONS TANKER FILLED WITH IRANIAN OIL AFTER FOX NEWS REPORT

Iranian media reports 10 million liters of fuel are smuggled out of the country daily.

The seizure comes amid heightened tensions in the region sparked by the U.S. government’s decision in May to exit the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran.

In July, Great Britain detained an Iranian tanker near Gibraltar suspected of shipping oil to Syria in violation of European Union sanctions.

Two weeks later, Iran seized a British oil tanker near the Strait of Hormuz for alleged marine violations, according to Reuters.

The Iranian tanker was later released. Iran this week freed seven of the 23 crew members of the British-flagged tanker, Reuters reported.

IRAN TO FREE 7 CREW MEMBERS OF SEIZED BRITISH TANKER UNDER ‘HUMANE POLICY,’ 16 MEMBERS TO STAY ABOARD VESSEL

Tensions have also been exacerbated by mysterious attacks on oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz and the downing of a U.S. military surveillance drone by Iran.

Meantime, the U.S. Transportation Department’s Maritime Administration issued on Saturday a new warning to shippers about a potential threat off the coast of Yemen in the southern Red Sea.

“A maritime threat has been reported in the Red Sea in the vicinity of Yemen,” the warning read. “The nature of the event is potential increased hostilities that threaten maritime security.”

Large areas of war-torn Yemen are held by the country’s Houthi rebels, which are allied to Iran. Shipping in the Red Sea has been targeted previously by rebel attacks. On Wednesday, a warning went out after two small boats followed one ship in the region, but there’s been no other information about a new threat there.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Mollie Hemingway: Biden likely won’t be nominee, Warren would be better candidate than Clinton was

Westlake Legal Group Biden-Hemmingway-Warren Mollie Hemingway: Biden likely won't be nominee, Warren would be better candidate than Clinton was Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article aa4624f5-2c3c-5293-ac91-8631dad7d120

Author Mollie Hemingway claimed that 2020 was President Trump’s election to lose and that former Vice President Joe Biden was such a bad candidate, it would be incredibly difficult for him to compete against the president.

“I do not see how he could even hope to compete against Donald Trump,” Hemingway said during Thursday’s “Hemmer Time” podcast.

She added that the more that Democratic voters saw Biden committing gaffes, the “more they’re going to be nervous.”

Despite Biden’s strong polling numbers and relationships with donors, Hemingway predicted that the former vice president likely wouldn’t even win the party’s nomination.

Hemingway pointed to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., saying she was running “an incredibly smart campaign” and could appeal more to the increasing numbers of single women who held sway over the party’s direction.

More from Media

Warren, Hemingway said, would be a better candidate than former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was in 2016, but not necessarily good enough to beat Trump.

“Hillary Clinton — people underestimated just how much legitimate baggage she had going back decades. People had built up a really long list of reasons for why they didn’t like Hillary Clinton,” Heminway told Fox News host Bill Hemmer.

Trump’s campaign, according to Hemingway, had to worry about maintaining the vote among suburban women who were emotionally turned off by his rhetoric on Twitter.

‘JUSTICE ON TRIAL’ EXCERPT: MOLLIE HEMINGWAY, CARRIE SEVERINO REVEAL HOW KAVANAUGH CONFIRMATION WAS SAVED

She said that even if Trump continued using inflammatory rhetoric, however, voters could still support the president given how extreme the Democratic Party was becoming. Trump’s 2016 voters would also likely support him again — in addition to conservatives who refused to back him during his initial run.

“You had people who really were Republican or really were conservative and they didn’t trust Donald Trump or they didn’t like his rhetoric — they now have had three years to witness how he governs. They’re probably really happy with that,” she said.

“I mean, no matter the issue, if it’s deregulation or tax reform or pro-life issues or judges or any of these issues — they could not be happier. You’re getting better results with Donald Trump — inexplicably — than you got with people who really talked the talk and had been lifelong conservatives.”

Hemingway also argued that media outlets had failed to learn lessons after the 2016 election.

MOLLIE HEMINGWAY SLAMS ANTI-TRUMP HOST LAWRENCE O’DONNELL FOLLOWING ON-AIR APOLOGY: ‘EMBARRASSING AND SAD’

“They responded to their obvious failures in 2016 by getting worse,” Hemingway said. “You would have thought that what they would have done was improve — focus on facts as opposed to pushing a narrative, hiring people who don’t share their far-left views, making structural changes in the newsroom,” she said.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

She added that the media instead “rolled right into the Russia collusion hoax where they argued for years that the reasonable explanation for their failures was not that they didn’t know what was going on in the country but that Donald Trump was the Manchurian candidate who had secretly conspired with Russians to steal the 2016 election.”

Rather than admitting fault with the Russia narrative, she said, the media was hopping onto a Democratic narrative that accused people who didn’t share their politics of racism.

Ellie Goulding shows off her six pack while on honeymoon

Ellie Goulding showed fans her impressively toned figure in the first shot from her honeymoon.

The singer, 32, stripped down to a navy bikini and black trainers as she admired the picturesque view on her romantic getaway.

A sailing ship passed behind her in turquoise water and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.

‘MODERN FAMILY’ STAR ARIEL WINTER SHOWS OFF ABS IN INSTAGRAM POST: ‘YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL’

Loved-up Ellie’s famously voluminous blonde hair blew gently in the breeze and her six-pack looked chiseled.

Last Saturday Ellie glowed with happiness as she shared a kiss with new husband Caspar Jopling after tying the knot at York Minster.

The “Love Me Like You Do” singer arrived at her star-studded wedding in York in a gothic-style white gown.

Arriving in a blue VW camper van, Ellie was greeted by her bridesmaids, who all wore white long-sleeved white dresses.

The singer’s gown featured a high, ruffled neck, long sleeves and pearl floral detailing throughout.

She added a long white veil and carried a bouquet of white roses.

As she climbed the steps of the Minster, her bridesmaids helped fan out the train of her dress.

After exchanging vows, the newlyweds shared their first kiss as man and wife at the altar, the stunning windows filling the space with light as their loved ones watched on.

The couple then headed outside for photographs, and Ellie couldn’t hide her delight at becoming Mrs. Jopling.

The singer planted a kiss on her new husband’s lips before they posed for more photographs.

Ellie invited a star-studded array of guests from the world of music and showbiz as well as members of the Royal Family after Princess Eugenie reportedly introduced the couple.

Fellow singer Katy Perry, 34, arrived with actor fiance Orlando Bloom, 42, and opted for a tie-dye patterned dress with a mint green jacket over the top.

The star added a colorful hairband, hoop earrings, and pink kitten heels to complete her wedding look, and held hands with Orlando as they smiled to the waiting crowds and headed inside the Minster.

Also in attendance was singer James Blunt, who arrived with his wife Sofia Wellesley, as well as comedian Jimmy Carr.

Fitness fanatic Ellie also invited The Body Coach Joe Wicks, who looked dapper in his suit as he arrived with his fiancee Rosie Jones.

The groom arrived around the same time as the guests, looking smart in his wedding suit with a white rose in his lapel.

Caspar Jopling, an arts dealer, looked relatively relaxed on his big day, smiling and sharing a joke with his friends before heading inside to await his bride.

Princess Beatrice, sister of the couple’s reported matchmaker Princess Eugenie, opted for a dark green dress with ruffled sleeves as she waved to the crowds on the steps of the Minster.

She was joined by her mother, Sarah Ferguson, with the wedding marking the first time she has broken cover since her ex Prince Andrew first faced scrutiny over his relationship with paedo financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Ellie and Caspar, 27, first started dating in 2017, after their mutual friend Princess Eugenie reportedly introduced them.

Justin Haskins: Sleep well, Ocasio-Cortez, and consider having a family. Here’s the truth about our planet

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6079358738001_6079366521001-vs Justin Haskins: Sleep well, Ocasio-Cortez, and consider having a family. Here's the truth about our planet Justin Haskins fox-news/us/environment/climate-change fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article a5d1782d-fc31-55ee-8af2-3225dd98d3a9

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is absolutely terrified of climate change — I mean really, terrified. In fact, according to the freshman congresswoman, she’s so scared of climate change that it’s waking her up “in the middle of the night.”

“Even while I was on vacation, I woke up in the middle of the night, at 3:30 in the morning, just concerned about climate change,” Ocasio-Cortez said in an Instagram livestream recently.

Ocasio-Cortez even wondered if, in a world with a changing climate, she should have children. “I’m 29 years old,” she said. “I really struggle sometimes with the idea of how to be a policymaker and potentially have a family in the time of climate change. And it really, like, freaks me out and it can be really, really scary.”

DANIEL TURNER: LABOR DAY BETRAYAL – OCASIO-CORTEZ LEADS DEM CANDIDATES TO EMBRACE ANTI-LABOR POLICIES

Wow, that’s depressing. I almost feel bad for her.

Ocasio-Cortez’s post came just one day after she lamented that there could be an untold number of ancient diseases hidden within glaciers, and that if those glaciers melt because of climate change, well, humanity could be in huge trouble.

More from Opinion

“Scientists fear that there’s a potential that a lot of diseases could escape these melted glaciers, things that were frozen for thousands of years, and that they’re going to get into our water,” Ocasio-Cortez said, “and that humans could contract them, and they are going to be diseases that are thousands of years old that have vectors that we are not prepared for, that we have never seen.”

On other occasions, Ocasio-Cortez has warned that climate change will cause the dangerous sea-level rise and lead to deadly increases in mosquito populations, along with dozens of other horror stories.

I suppose if I believed that climate change will cause oceans to swallow up whole cities and release killer diseases that could wreak havoc on the human race, I, too, might think twice about bringing more humans into the world. But unlike Ocasio-Cortez, I have absolutely no trouble sleeping at night, and when I do, it sure as heck isn’t because of climate change.

Does the evidence show Earth has warmed over the past century? Yes, of course. Is warming likely to continue for the next several decades, at least? Yes, probably.

The hard data overwhelmingly shows that recent warming has not been catastrophic and that humans are better off in our moderately warmer world.

But the available evidence shows that warming is not dangerous and not likely to be catastrophic, despite numerous dire reports from climate alarmists like Ocasio-Cortez and biased government agencies, which are often more interested in accomplishing political goals than engaging in real scientific inquiry.

For example, the evidence clearly shows that sea-level rise is not accelerating at a dangerous pace and that it’s in line with sea-level rise measured prior to the widespread use of fossil fuels.

And I know this will come as a shock to Ocasio-Cortez and her climate alarmist acolytes, but the hard data overwhelmingly shows that recent warming has not been catastrophic and that humans are better off in our moderately warmer world that they would otherwise be, because lower global temperatures are associated with more significant societal problems, like famine and weather-related deaths.

As James Taylor, my colleague and a senior fellow in environment and climate issues for The Heartland Institute, noted in a recent policy study, “During the past 150 years, as Earth has emerged from the Little Ice Age, the warming climate has brought immeasurable benefits that continue today, including crop yields that have set records in the United States and globally nearly every year.

Higher temperatures have also spurred a significant increase in global plant life, as measured by NASA satellites. Recent warming has led to a reduction in persistently lower temperatures, which researchers estimate kill 20 times more people than higher temperatures, and objective data show extreme weather and climate events have actually become slightly less frequent and severe in recent decades, despite numerous false or misleading media reports to the contrary.”

Taylor isn’t alone. Numerous scientists have made similar observations in recent decades, a reality the mainstream press continues to ignore. For example, noted meteorologist Joe Bastardi, who now serves as the chief meteorologist at weatherbell.com, has found that “in the fossil fuel era, in spite of a four-fold increase in population,” the number of deaths related to climate has “plummeted.”

Patrick Michaels, Ph.D., a former senior fellow in environmental studies at the Cato Institute, noted in 2018, “we don’t live in the best of all possible climates,” adding, “So what’s happened as it’s warmed this half a degree in the late 20th century and the CO2 has gone up and up in the atmosphere, well, what we’ve done is we’ve created a greener and greener planet and the greening of the Planet Earth is profound.”

Alarmists like Ocasio-Cortez also ignore the many important economic benefits provided by affordable, reliable energy sources like oil and natural gas. Unlike more expensive wind and solar, conventional energies work regardless if the wind is blowing or the sun is shining. Many conventional energy power facilities, especially nuclear, often last significantly longer than solar or wind facilities. And conventional energy sources require a lot less land.

If Ocasio-Cortez had it her way and the country was forced to abandon oil, natural gas, and coal — one of the most important provisions in her “Green New Deal” plan — more than 100 million acres of land would need to be consumed by solar facilities and wind turbines. That’s a landmass larger than the state of California. How many hundreds of millions of animals and countless animal habitats would need to be wiped out in the name of “saving the planet”?

And where does Ocasio-Cortez think all of the required rare earth minerals needed to build and operate those windmills and solar panels would come from? Someone is going to have to dig them out of the earth, destroying even more land. And in some cases, the only place to find these materials is in countries with notorious and abysmal human rights records, like the Congo, which has frequently experienced intense violence dnd even permits child labor.

Millions of dead animals, more than 100 million acres of destroyed land, significantly higher energy costs, and child labor — now, that sounds like a nightmare worth keeping you up at night.

Will global warming cause some problems, yes, but probably not nearly as many as proposals like the Green New Deal. And whatever problems do come humans’ way will likely be outweighed by the benefits of warming and could easily be dealt with through technological innovations, human ingenuity, and, if necessary, behavioral changes.

So, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, feel free to have as many kids as you’d like and sleep well. Humans are going to be just fine!

Surveillance rights, deleting people from photos, smart mirrors, and more: Tech Q&A

Video Doorbell Rights

Q: I have a Ring video doorbell and am deeply concerned about my rights. Can the police department get access to the footage? I heard this is happening.

A: Video evidence is gold in prosecutions, so, understandably, the police would be interested in seizing street-level surveillance. But Ring owners should be aware of how their service can be used and their rights when law enforcement comes knocking. Owned by Amazon, Ring has garnered a lot of criticism from civil liberties experts, and nobody wants to live in a full-on panopticon. Make sure you know what you’re signing up for. On my site, I have a map that shows the over 400 police departments working with Ring. Tap or click here to learn more about Amazon’s nationwide police partnership.

Tune Into My Show

Q: I used to listen to your show on WLS 890 AM in Chicago. I moved. Is there a list of radio stations that broadcast your show?

A: It’s a good thing we live in the 21st century! In years past, you could have turned that dial all day long, looking for a station that carried my show, and you would probably only find it by accident. Even in our digital age, finding a specific show on a specific frequency in a specific city can be pretty hard. I’ve made that process instantaneous, thanks to my online station finder. All you have to do is enter a city, state, or zip code, and you’ll get all the scheduling info you need. Happy listening! Tap or click here to find the station in your hometown that broadcasts my show.

Legacy Concerns

Q: I have cancer. I want to set things up now for my passing. Can I have Google delete my account when I die?

A: First off, my heart goes out to you. I have lost many loved ones, and I know how significant this time is to you. Putting your affairs in order can be a major concern, and in a digital world, we all have to recognize what a footprint we will leave behind. Managing your virtual life can be as significant as a living will and last rites. Rest assured that you can delete your Google account, along with all the data you have personally stored. This won’t include material that’s been copied or has seeped into other accounts, but you will be able to erase your Gmail, Calendar, YouTube, Drive, Docs, and other connected applications. Tap or click here to clear Google of all your posthumous data.

Doctor Photos

Q: Is there an easy way to remove people from photos? Sometimes, the picture would be perfect if the people were not in the shot!

A: I am going to recommend the Bye Bye Camera App, but before you go ahead and download it, you should know how weird this thing is. Bye Bye doesn’t just remove random people who obstruct a picture; it removes all people, making it appear that nobody was there in the first place. It’s shockingly effective, but a little bit disturbing. The app was developed as an art project, not for strictly practical use. So if you have a landscape that would look better without any human obstruction, this is the app for you. If you just want to nix some photo-bombers and unwanted exes, you’ll probably have to learn a little Photoshop – or use a free editing program like GIMP. Tap or click here to learn more and download this special app.

Fitness Tech

Q: On your cable TV show, you were talking about a mirror that has live yoga, Pilates, and boxing classes. Do you think it’s worth the money?

A: Okay, this is a pretty neat gadget, like something out of a science fiction flick. Simply called “Mirror,” it looks like a regular sheet of reflective glass until you decide to run a fitness program, and then it transforms into a personal trainer. Such technology comes at a price: Mirror costs nearly $1,500, and you’ll have to sign up for a monthly subscription. Unless you’ve experienced the tech firsthand and know that it works well for you, Mirror might be too extravagant to purchase on a whim. But you might take an interest in some other sports tech that’s a little more reasonable – and can really get your heart rate up. Tap or click here for more innovations in fitness tech.

‘Brady Bunch’ star Maureen McCormick says she and costar Ann B. Davis were ‘so close’ after sitcom ended

Maureen McCormick says she developed a strong bond with Ann B. Davis while on the set of “The Brady Bunch.”

Davis, the comic actress best known for playing devoted housekeeper Alice Nelson on the hit ‘70s series, died in 2014 at age 88 after suffering a fall in her San Antonio home.

‘BRADY BUNCH’ STAR MAUREEN MCCORMICK RECALLS HER RELATIONSHIP WITH ON-SCREEN MOM FLORENCE HENDERSON

“Gosh, we were so close,” McCormick, who famously played Marcia Brady in the series, recently told Closer Weekly.

“We used to fly to Texas and we would hang out and go out to dinner and we really spent a lot of time together — you know years after the show, and just admire her,” McCormick continued.

McCormick told the outlet she also shared a loving relationship with her TV mom Florence Henderson.

“Florence of course, we got very, very close, and spent really amazing moments together at the end,” said McCormick. “I’m really grateful because they all taught me a lot and they’ll always be with me.”

At the time of Davis’ death, McCormick said in a statement that the comic “made me a better person. How blessed I am to have had her in my life. She will be forever missed.”

Davis originally made her mark as the razor-tongued secretary on “The Bob Cummings Show,” which earned her two Emmys. She appeared on that sitcom from 1955 until 1959. She went on to appear on “The Brady Bunch” from 1969 until 1974.

“I know at least a couple hundred glamour gals who are starving in this time,” Davis told the Los Angeles Times in 1955. “I’d rather be myself and eating.”

Davis said she told NBC photographers not to retouch their pictures of her, but they ignored her request and “gave me eyebrows.”

MAUREEN MCCORMICK REVEALS SHE WANTED TO BUY THE ICONIC ‘BRADY BUNCH’ HOUSE

In her maid’s uniform, Davis’ character in “The Brady Bunch” was constantly cleaning up messes big and small, and she was a mainstay of stability for her family.

“I think I’m lovable,” Davis told The Associated Press in 1993. “I don’t do anything to be lovable. I have no control.”

According to The Associated Press, Davis lived a quiet religious life long after “The Brady Bunch” came to an end.

The Alice character never truly left the heart of Ann B. Davis. The actress reprised the role in several Brady reunions and even appeared in several disposable mop commercials. She lived in Texas and kept busy with her involvement in her local church up until her death in 2014 at the age of 88. (Getty)

“I was born again,” she told the outlet in 1993. “It happens to Episcopalians. Sometimes it doesn’t hit you till you’re 47 years old. It changed my whole life for the better… I spent a lot of time giving Christian witness all over the country to church groups and stuff.”

‘BRADY BUNCH’ CAST DISCUSSES ICONIC TV HOME

Davis never married, saying she never found a man who was more interesting than her career.

“By the time I started to get interested (in finding someone), all the good ones were taken,” she told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Like Davis, Henderson left an undeniable impression on McCormick.

Back in 2017, McCormick was one of 19 celebrities who participated in The American Heart Association’s (AHA) Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection fashion show, which was presented by Macy’s at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

FLORENCE HENDERSON WAS EXPECTED TO ‘BOUNCE BACK’ FROM ILLNESS

The annual show was created to raise awareness of heart disease among women. According to AHA, cardiovascular diseases cause one in three deaths among women each year — more than all cancers combined.

Good heart health was also an important cause to Henderson, who participated in the event in 2016. As Carol Brady, the Hollywood veteran could solve any problem that arose in the Brady household, but in real life, she battled heart problems from a very young age — and they weren’t as simple to resolve.

Henderson passed away in 2016 at age 82 from congestive heart failure.

“Florence had a heart disease issue from the time that she was a child,” McCormick told Fox News in 2017. “She had a heart murmur and about a decade ago, she had something really frightening happened to her. She went into Cedars-Sinai in LA and they discovered a mitral valve leakage. And fortunately, they were able to revive her and repair her valve, instead of replacing it.”

‘MARY TYLER MOORE’ STAR TELLS ALL

Just three days before her death, Henderson attended a taping of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” to cheer on McCormick, who was participating in the dance competition series.

“[Florence was] a person who wanted to spread love and laughter,” said McCormick about her friend. “She loved people, she loved life. She’s born on Valentine’s Day, how perfect, right? [She was] just a great woman. Someone I really admired.”

McCormick was also grateful to have Henderson by her side during the grueling dance competition.

“I’ve always admired people that can dance and move their bodies,” said McCormick on her involvement with “Dancing with the Stars.” “It’s something I’ve always thought, ‘Oh, if only I can do that, wouldn’t that be great?’ But it’s something I always thought I could not do. I was afraid to do it in public because I was afraid to look bad doing it. I was just afraid to be that vulnerable.”

McCormick had a message for women everywhere — one that the ever-doting Henderson would have approved.

“Just be careful, women,” said McCormick. “This is the number one killer of women. Heart disease. Ask questions, go talk to your doctor, get all the tests and check-ups that we’re supposed to do for cholesterol, and blood pressure, and blood sugar. Exercise a good amount. And eat right. And take care of yourself. Life is short, you know.”
