Brady gets second loss of season as Texans top Pats 28-22

Westlake Legal Group SNF-cropped-436am-1 Brady gets second loss of season as Texans top Pats 28-22 Kristie Reiken fox-news/sports/nfl/new-england-patriots fox-news/sports/nfl/houston-texans fox-news/sports/nfl fnc/sports fnc Associated Press article 29513e41-0787-5853-8336-a44faeae32b7

Deshaun Watson has long admired Tom Brady for his talent and resilience.

He beat him Sunday night by not only throwing touchdown passes, but by catching one, too.
“I told them I’m an athlete … the more you can do, the longer you play in this league,” he said. “So I can do it all.”

J.J. WATT MIGHT RETURN TO TEXANS FOR PLAYOFFS: REPORTS

Watson threw three touchdown passes and had the first TD reception of his career, and the Houston Texans frustrated Brady in a 28-22 victory over the New England Patriots.

Texans coach and former Patriots assistant Bill O’Brien got his first win in six tries against New England coach Bill Belichick. It was Houston’s second win over the Patriots and first since Jan. 3, 2010.

Watson had 234 yards passing and threw touchdown passes of 14, 13, and 35 yards as Houston (8-4) built a 21-3 lead against New England’s vaunted defense.

“This is pretty big just because it’s Brady,” Watson said. “I was 0-2 against him and who knows when he’s going to hang it up. That’s my role model, a guy that’s been doing it forever, over 20 years … so it’s pretty awesome to finally get one.”

Brady completed two of his three TD passes in the final 4 minutes to pull within six. A Patriots (10-2) player got a hand on Jake Bailey’s onside kick attempt with 50 seconds remaining, but the ball bounced out of bounds.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS SEARCH FOR FOURTH KICKER AS 8 PLAYERS MISS PRACTICE BECAUSE OF FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS: REPORT

“There’s really not a whole lot to say here,” Belichick said. “The Texans did a good job tonight, across the board, in every area. They were just better than we were.”

James White had a 12-yard reception for New England’s first touchdown late in the third quarter, but Watson grabbed the first reception of his career on a flip from DeAndre Hopkins on a trick play with about 10 minutes left to make it 28-9. Watson took the snap and handed off to Duke Johnson, and he gave the ball to Hopkins on a reverse to the right. Hopkins tossed to Watson on an option near the sideline, and Watson dived into the end zone for a 6-yard score.

The Patriots entered needing a win to be the first AFC team to clinch a playoff spot after Oakland’s loss to Kansas City earlier in the day. Instead, they struggled to sustain drives, and Brady often looked upset on a night he was 24 of 47. He threw an interception and was sacked three times, hit on 12 other occasions and was seen yelling at his receivers on the sideline after a drive with several incompletions in the first half. He finished with 326 yards.

“Execution,” Brady said. “Just got to do a better job, and it’s tough to get behind and come back. Just put ourselves in a pretty deep hole and you can’t do that on the road.”

New England dealt with a flu bug this week that swept through the locker room and left two players inactive Sunday.

Brady connected with White again with about four minutes left, but the 2-point conversion failed to leave New England down 28-15. The Patriots attempted an onside kick after that and Houston recovered but couldn’t move the ball and had to punt.

HOUSTON TEXANS’ WIN OVER INDIANAPOLIS COLTS COMES WITH FUMBLE CONTROVERSY

Brady threw a 20-yard pass to Julian Edelman that cut the lead to six with 50 seconds left. But the Patriots couldn’t recover a second onside kick and Houston ran out the clock.

There were about seven minutes left in the third quarter when the Patriots went for it on fourth-and-1 and Johnathan Joseph broke up a pass intended for Mohamed Sanu.

On the next drive, Houston had a touchdown reception by Will Fuller called back after a review. It didn’t matter much as the Texans got a 35-yard TD on a nearly identical route by Kenny Stills on the next play to push the lead to 21-3.

New England was able to sustain a drive for the first time since its opening possession when White grabbed his 12-yard TD from Brady late in the third. Kai Forbath missed the extra point to leave the Patriots down 21-9. Forbath was signed on Friday to replace Nick Folk, who was released after having an emergency appendectomy.

The Patriots led 3-0 after a field goal on their first drive. The Texans had to punt on their first possession but got the ball back three plays later when Bradley Roby jumped a route and intercepted Brady. Roby, who also had a sack, returned after missing the last five games with a hamstring injury.

Houston cashed in on the miscue when Watson connected with Johnson on a 14-yard TD pass to make it 7-3 late in the first quarter. It is Watson’s fifth game this season with at least three touchdown passes, which is tied for most in the NFL.

The Texans padded the lead when they capped a 13-play, 88-yard drive with a 13-yard touchdown reception by Darren Fells.

Mary Anne Marsh: Democrats’ top two contenders as Iowa and NH votes draw near

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6110902560001_6110902426001-vs Mary Anne Marsh: Democrats' top two contenders as Iowa and NH votes draw near Mary Anne Marsh fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/pete-buttigieg fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 1b9a0641-5d0d-5d78-81e1-4b57ebccc064

With 63 days until the Iowa caucuses, 71 days until the New Hampshire primary and 92 days until Super Tuesday, the race for the Democratic nomination is in the home stretch. The one thing money can’t buy a campaign is time. And time is running out for everyone except the top tier candidates.

Math and history favor the one who wins at least one of the first contests and Super Tuesday. Today that means the race is between Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

For all the talk and wishful thinking that the race is wide open, it has been remarkably consistent. The current top tier, Warren, former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, have been there for much of the year. Buttigieg returned to the top tier after an earlier appearance last spring.

NEWT GINGRICH: PLOT AGAINST PRESIDENT IS REAL – AND BIGGER THAN MANY THINK

Much media coverage focuses on national polls but it is the first contests, specifically Iowa and New Hampshire, that tell you where the race really stands.

The latest Des Moines Register poll, the gold standard for the Iowa caucuses, has Buttigieg in first place at 25 percent, a meteoric 16 percent rise since September. Warren, who led the September Iowa poll with 22 percent, slipped to 16, while Biden and Sanders are tied at 15 percent. The Register poll had the same four candidates in the top tier five months ago.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER

In New Hampshire, the most recent poll, conducted by Suffolk University, has a tight four-way race: Sanders at 16 percent, Warren at 14, Buttigieg at 13, and Biden at 12. Since the Suffolk poll in August, Buttigieg has gained seven points, Biden lost nine and Sanders dropped one. Warren stayed the same.

Clearly, Warren and Buttigieg are poised to win either one or both of the first two contests. Historically, a candidate who wins the first two contests runs the table. John Kerry, in 2004, was the last candidate to accomplish this.

More from Opinion

The Democratic primary contests since 2004 have been a tussle between two candidates,  Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in 2008 and Clinton and Sanders in 2016. In both cases, the nomination was settled on Super Tuesday. In fact, from 1988 to 2016, the winner of Super Tuesday became the Democratic nominee.

That is even more likely in 2020. Fifteen states, about a third of the country, including California and Texas, will vote on Super Tuesday. Not only will the math make it a challenge for anyone to catch a front runner after that day, but a rule change makes it even harder. At the convention next year, only pledged delegates will be eligible to vote on the first ballot.

To win the nomination a candidate must have 1,919 delegates. To avoid a second ballot that means pledged delegates as super delegates can’t vote on the first ballot. The first four contests – Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada — offer a total of 135 pledged delegates. But there are 1,163 pledged delegates up for grabs on Super Tuesday. That’s not enough to be the nominee, but doing well on March 3 can make a candidate almost impossible to catch.

Democratic primary contests since 2004 have been a tussle between two candidates, Clinton and Obama in 2008 and Clinton and Sanders in 2016. In both cases, the nomination was settled on Super Tuesday.

Biden leads in the national polls but he doesn’t lead in Iowa and New Hampshire. Losses there dramatically lessen his chances of winning Nevada or South Carolina – and the nomination. Voters see him as an insurance policy as they wait to see if another candidate emerges to take on President Trump.

Sanders’ prospects are just as precarious. His best chance is New Hampshire, a state he won by 22 points over Clinton in 2016. Today, he holds a slim two-point lead. A loss there means Sanders loses the nomination.

The likelihood of losing the first two contests isn’t the only thing Biden and Sanders share. Their drop in the polls has benefited Warren and Buttigieg. Warren’s rise was fueled by picking up Sanders supporters. Now, former Biden supporters are boosting Buttigieg’s rise.

That is why the contest today is between Warren and Buttigieg, with the senator having the advantage. Despite her recent drop in the polls, Warren is the strongest candidate in terms of fundraising, organization, message, policy positions, and events. Her campaign built a solid foundation out of the adversity she faced earlier in the race, and which she also faces again.

It appears Warren’s recent drop in the polls coincides with her “Medicare-for-All” policy. There is no other explanation for it. But the experience of building her way into the top tier earlier this year should serve her well as she works to regain front-runner status.

Buttigieg is in the top tier and spotlight for the second time, but he returns without the foundation of Warren. He was initially boosted by big fundraising hauls, which have continued. But he didn’t fare well under the bright lights of scrutiny and dropped back into the second tier. His problem with race as mayor of South Bend continues, presenting the biggest obstacle to winning the nomination. Without African American votes, which are critical on Super Tuesday, you can’t win the Democratic nomination.

Compounding Buttigieg’s problems are his changing policy positions. Just one example is being for “Medicare-for-All” before he was against it. But Buttigieg’s rise is undeniable. The question is whether he can stay there this time.

For now, though, entering the home stretch for the Democratic nomination, the matchup to watch is Warren vs. Buttigieg. Buckle up.

China to suspend US Navy visits to Hong Kong over bill

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6103124200001_6103126715001-vs China to suspend US Navy visits to Hong Kong over bill fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/world fnc Edmund DeMarche article a9de8bf3-9c3f-5d88-b4c3-3561c1875eae

China announced Monday that it will suspend U.S. Navy visits to Hong Kong in retaliation over President Trump’s decision to sign legislation that supported the city’s pro-democracy protesters who have taken to the streets since June.

CHINA EXPERT SAYS BEIJING’S THREATS ARE LAUGHABLE

Beijing took its first step to make good on its promise to employ “countermeasures” against the U.S. in light of the bills that it blasted as “hegemonic” in nature and ignorant of the facts on the ground.

The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, which was sponsored by Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., requires that the U.S. conducts yearly reviews into Hong Kong’s autonomy from Beijing. If ever found unsatisfactory, the city’s special status for U.S. trading could be tossed.

“I signed these bills out of respect for President Xi, China, and the people of Hong Kong,” Trump said in a statement. “They are being enacted in the hope that Leaders and Representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences leading to long term peace and prosperity for all.”

China also announced on Monday that it sanctioned Human Rights Watch for its support of the violence in the city, ,Hua Chunying, a ministry spokesman, told Reuters.

Single shoe found in search for missing 6-year-old girl swept away in Arizona creek

Westlake Legal Group fseprd526303 Single shoe found in search for missing 6-year-old girl swept away in Arizona creek Jack Durschlag fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/arizona fox-news/us/disasters/floods fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc article 6a15be03-c1e9-5aa5-8234-2361b212faca

A shoe, believed to belong to a missing 6-year-old girl who was the subject of a massive search, was recovered Sunday about 200 yards from where her family’s oversized military-style truck got stuck in a raging creek in Arizona, a published report said.

Nine family members, together for the Thanksgiving holiday, were caught up in a cascade of water caused by an intense runoff from a powerful storm Friday, The Associated Press reported. Four children and two adults were rescued by helicopter, but three children stayed in the truck, which was later swept away.

2 ARIZONA CHILDREN, BOTH 5, FOUND DEAD, ONE STILL MISSING AFTER VEHICLE SWEPT AWAY BY FLOODWATERS

The girl, identified as Willa Rawlings, has been missing since the incident occurred. Her 5-year-old brother and cousin were both found dead on Saturday.

“We want to bring her home safely to her family. She needs to come home today, and we’re going to do that today.” 

— Lt. Virgil Dodd of the Gila County Sheriff’s Office.

“There was a shoe in the area where there was some interest in that debris. At this time, we believe that it may belong to the little girl that we’re searching for,” he added.

More than 100 volunteers gathered near Tonto Basin, a small community northeast of Phoenix, early Sunday to help search for the missing girl, Willa Rawlings, the Republic reported.

ARIZONA TEEN, 17, BECOMES TRAPPED IN CHIMNEY AFTER TRYING TO GET IN LOCKED HOUSE: REPORT

Volunteers, working in small groups searched through the muddy brush, heading toward the creek looking for the girl, who was wearing jeans and a purple jacket, the Republic reported.

Willa’s parents, Daniel and Lacey Rawlings, both escaped from the truck. However, their son, Colby Rawlings, and niece, Austin Rawlings, were not in the vehicle when it was pulled from the creek the next day. Their bodies were found about 600 to 1,000 yards from the failed crossing, the report said.

The creek crossing was marked as closed with barricades and signs, authorities said.

A National Weather Service meteorologist said the agency issued a flood warning for the region – including the Tonto Basin area – at 8:53 a.m. Friday when an estimated nearly to 2 inches of rain fell in the area, with some of the runoff coming from snow that fell on nearby peaks, the AP reported.

The region received up to 4 inches of rain about a week before the incident.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Kansas considers ‘greener’ new way to bury its dead

Westlake Legal Group Soils Kansas considers ‘greener’ new way to bury its dead fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche article 6a6773f6-0d97-5522-9c92-285cc44ac953

Promessa, a Swedish company that wants to revolutionize how to reduce the ecological footprint in traditional burials, is focusing on Kansas to introduce its product in the U.S. because the state has what some consider relatively lax cremation laws, a report said.

The procedure, according to the Kansas City Star, is called promession. In standard cremation the body is broken down by fire. Promession consists of the freezing the body with liquid nitrogen and then “vibrating it into particles,” the report said.

SUPREME COURT TO TAKE UP FIRST GUNS-RIGHTS CASE IN DECADE

Susanne Wiigh-Mäsak, the biologist who founded the company, said in an interview that promession is cost-effective and eco-friendly.

“You are still in an organic form, which means you are not broken down, you are still food for the soil and if you spread it around you will be food for birds, or fish, or whatever,” she told Wired in 2013.

Rachel Caldwell, a representative from the company, told the Star that she thought Kansas wouldn’t have “hang-ups” and was surprised when the state’s attorney general, Derek Schmidt, released an opinion about the matter before Thanksgiving. He reportedly said that the decision should be made by the Kansas Board of Mortuary Arts. The paper said it reached out to the board, and did receive a comment.  Promessa did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News on the Star report.

The interest in “greener” ways to bury the dead has become a topic that other states in the country are considering. Washington last May became the first state to allow the composting of human bodies. Licensed facilities in the state will offer a “natural organic reduction.” The body is mixed with substances like wood chips into about two wheelbarrows’ worth of soil in a span of several weeks. Loved ones are allowed to keep the soil to spread, just as they might spread the ashes of someone who has been cremated — or even use it to plant vegetables or a tree.

Kansas was reportedly an appealing state for Promessa because it does not require a fire to be used in the cremation process.  The paper spoke to one state representative, Dave Benson, a Democrat, who said he may consider drafting a bill to allow promession.

“If that’s what you want, hey, where’s the government’s interest in telling you not to?” Benson said.

Ronan Farrow says relationship with Hillary Clinton cooled when he looked into Weinstein

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6097551841001_6097550736001-vs Ronan Farrow says relationship with Hillary Clinton cooled when he looked into Weinstein fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche article 421690f2-00e0-547c-ad55-d91c0cd181c6

Ronan Farrow, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, said in an interview published Saturday his relationship with Hillary Clinton cooled when word began to spread he was looking into allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Farrow told the Financial Times in 2011 he was selected by Clinton, then the secretary of state, to work as a special adviser on global youth issues. He said they worked together for years but noticed a change in their relationship when word got out he was looking into Weinstein – one of her top fundraisers.

Farrow did not elaborate on how Clinton found out about his interest in Weinstein or how exactly the relationship cooled. After-hours emails from Fox News to representatives for Clinton and Farrow were not immediately returned. The paper said a Clinton spokesman did not comment for its article.

Farrow told the paper, “It’s remarkable how quickly even people with a long relationship with you will turn if you if you threaten the centers of power or sources of funding around them. Ultimately, there are a lot of people out there who operate in that way. They’re beholden to powerful interests, you become radioactive very quickly.”

Farrow and The New York Times won Pulitzers in 2018 for stories outlining sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein. The producer, 67, has pleaded not guilty to charges he raped a woman in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013 and performed a forcible sex act on a different woman in 2006. He is free on $1 million bail and maintains that any sexual activity was consensual.

Clinton, for her part, took days after the New York Times broke the Weinstein story to issue a statement. CNN reported that she said she was “shocked and appalled” by the revelations.

“The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior,” the statement read.

Burkina Faso church attack, 14 shot dead, leader says

Westlake Legal Group 15163098_web1_190116-BPD-M-Burkina-Faso Burkina Faso church attack, 14 shot dead, leader says fox-news/world/world-regions/africa fnc/world fnc Associated Press article 8befc53d-5b4f-58e0-be65-024a2cb9afa6

The president of the West African nation of Burkina Faso has confirmed that 14 people were killed in an attack on a Protestant church in the country’s east.

Going on Twitter, President Roch Marc Christian Kabore said Sunday that he condemned “the barbaric attack” in the town of Hantoukoura. He said several people also were wounded.

Kabore offered his “deepest condolences to the bereaved families and wish a speedy recovery to the wounded.”

Islamic extremists have been active in Burkina Faso since 2015. Jihadists have attacked police stations and churches across the country’s north but also recently have struck in the east.

Russian emergency officials say 19 people were killed when their bus plunged off a bridge onto a frozen river in eastern Siberia.

Another 22 people were injured in the Sunday accident, Russian news agencies cited the Emergencies Ministry as saying.

Initial investigation indicates that a front wheel on the bus failed as it was crossing a bridge over the Kuenga River about 4,900 kilometers (3,100 miles) east of Moscow.

This takes in-flight drama to new heights.

A Florida woman faked a medical emergency in order to get a larger seat on an American Airlines flight, authorities said.

But the pilot, apparently not realizing the emergency was bogus, turned the plane around.

The woman, who wasn’t publicly identified, was taken into custody when Miami-bound flight American Eagle 3508 landed back in Pensacola around 6:30 a.m. Friday, police said.

“The pilot declared an emergency… once they got on the ground, she made it clear that she was faking the medical condition to get a bigger seat,” Pensacola Police Department spokesman Mike Wood told NBC 6.

Once the plane was back on the ground, the woman continued with the theatrics, refusing to get off the aircraft, cops said.

The pilot, law enforcement and medical personnel eventually succeeded in getting her off the plane.

The woman was taken into custody under the Sunshine State’s Baker Act, which allows authorities to hold a person who could be a threat to themselves or others.
