Brad Pitt has ‘apologized’ to Jennifer Aniston for past relationship issues: report

Brad Pitt has taken ownership of issues he believes he caused in his past relationship to Jennifer Aniston, according to a new report.

The former duo, who sent the Internet into a frenzy on Sunday during their touchy-feely red-carpet reunion at the Screen Actors Guild awards, has discussed the fallout of their past relationship and reconciled their differences, Entertainment Tonight said.

A source close to the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” actor, 56, told the outlet that Pitt is “completely sober” now and has entered a “different place” than the one he was in when he was married to the “Morning Show” actress.

“Brad is truly an introspective guy and has worked hard on himself,” the insider told the outlet. “He has apologized to her for many things he felt were his issues in their relationship. He truly takes ownership for his mistakes and that has changed their relationship with each other today.”

The source added that the exes have “moved on” from the past.

A second source told the outlet that Pitt and Aniston’s relationship has matured since their respective divorces from Angelina Jolie and Justin Theroux.

Pitt married Jolie in 2014 and the mother of six filed for divorce two years later. Meanwhile, Aniston tied the knot with Theroux in 2015 and announced their separation in February 2018.

Aniston, 50, and Pitt originally met each other in 1998 while Aniston was starring as Rachel on what would become the iconic sitcom, “Friends.” The pair were set up by their agents, and Aniston told Diane Sawyer in a 2004 interview that her first encounter with Pitt was “very easy” and “very fun.”

The former duo made their red carpet debut in September 1999 at the Emmys before getting engaged two months later. They tied the knot in July 2000 in a Malibu, Calif. ceremony and were joined by several of their A-list pals, including Cameron Diaz, Salma Hayek and Aniston’s “Friends” co-stars. They divorced in 2005.

Westlake Legal Group 5e29bbcd2100007802000124 Fans Freak Out At Ariana Grande Rehearsing For The Grammys With BTS

The “thank u, next” superstar on Wednesday tweeted an image of herself alongside K-pop group BTS as they rehearsed for performances at this year’s Grammy Awards on Sunday.

“look who i bumped into at rehearsal :)” Grande wrote in a tweet that has more than 1 million likes and 400,000 retweets.

BTS member Yoongi, also known as Suga, was not in the photo, likely because he snapped it, but some fans quickly edited him into the picture:

BTS is slated to appear at the Grammys alongside Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus in a performance called “Old Town Road All-Stars.” The performance also is set to feature Diplo and 13-year-old country star Mason Ramsey, who also have remixed the Lil Nas X hit “Old Town Road” at some point.

Grande’s tweet added to the growing Grammys excitement on social media ― especially about BTS ― as the awards show nears. Here’s what some had had to say:

California man rammed teens’ car in crash that killed 3 after doorbell prank, victim’s mom says

A California man is facing charges in a crash that killed three teens Sunday night after the group apparently played the “ding-dong ditch” prank on him, a victim’s mother said.

Debbie Ruiz, the mother of Drake Ruiz, a 16-year-old passenger who was among the boys killed when their Toyota Prius was struck, went off the road and slammed into a tree in Temescal Valley, told reporters Monday.

Her son and his five friends rang the bell of a house in a prank while on their way to a birthday party, she said.

“The boys were playing ding-dong ditch at a house they thought was somebody their age — but it turned out to be that angry man,” Ruiz said, referring to 42-year-old Anurag Chandra, according to FOX11 Los Angeles.

Sergio Campusano, the 18-year-old driver, told KNBC-TV that a man who answered the door got into his white Honda Infiniti and chased after them when they drove away.

“My friends started screaming,” he told the station. “They’re like: ‘Make it to the freeway! Make it to the freeway, like, try to lose him there.’ I just saw him ram his car into my back, and I whipped into my window and I blacked out.”

A witness chased the Infiniti and alerted California Highway Patrol officers who found it parked, with substantial front-end damage, at a nearby home. Officers then arrested Chandra on suspicion of murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

While police have not released a motive, they said Chandra “intentionally” caused the crash.

“It was an intentional act,” CHP Lt. David Yokley told reporters Monday. “Our investigation led us to believe Mr. Chandra intentionally rammed the Prius, causing the driver to lose control.”

The crash killed Ruiz and his two friends, Daniel Hawkins and Jacob Ivascu, all 16, according to the Riverside County coroner’s office.

Campusano survived along with 13-year-olds Joshua Hawkins and Joshua Ivascu, the younger brothers of Daniel and Jacob.

How to test for coronavirus: Company ‘rapidly’ developing new tools

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6125830819001_6125829439001-vs How to test for coronavirus: Company 'rapidly' developing new tools fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/health/infectious-disease/outbreaks fox-news/health/infectious-disease fox news fnc/health fnc cf9c480f-639f-5b76-9d9a-03b936be5872 article Alexandria Hein

As health authorities across the globe turn their attention toward China to monitor the ongoing coronavirus outbreak that’s sickened over 500 and killed at least 17 people, at least one company in the U.S. is working to develop a diagnostic tool that aims to mainstream the process of detecting the specific strain of the virus in a patient.

For now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends health care providers who suspect a patient may be suffering from symptoms of coronavirus order laboratory tests using respiratory specimens and serum to detect coronaviruses. However, there are several coronaviruses with similar genetic sequences, including MERS and SARS, and symptoms reported by the patient may be mistaken for another illness.

DR. OZ REACTS TO CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK: VERY HARD TO ‘WALL IT IN’ ONCE IT STARTS 

That’s why Dwight Egan, Co-Diagnostics chief executive officer, said his company is working to “rapidly” develop an accurate diagnostic test to detect 2019-nCoV, and eliminate the chance missed diagnoses.

“The WHO and CDC have published guidelines that we are utilizing in our design process,” he said in a statement to Fox News. “One of the most important advantages of our technology is its ability to accurately differentiate between similar genetic sequences, in order to reduce the likelihood of a false-positive diagnosis. If the outbreak continues, our industry will be an important vehicle for the commercialization and distribution of diagnostics.”

CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK PROMPTS CHINA TO RESTRICT TRAVEL IN ADDITIONAL CITIES

The virus, which officials determined is transmissible between humans, has popped up in at least five other countries in patients who passed through the Wuhan region. One of the fears is that a patient experiencing the most severe stage of the infection may become a super-spreader or someone who transmits the virus to a considerable more amount of people than the average infected person.

There are also suspicions that the Chinese government may be downplaying the outbreak, and underreporting the virus after the way the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak was handled by the country. For now, travel restrictions in at least three cities including Wuhan, which is considered the epicenter of the virus outbreak, as well as the indefinite cancelation of major events in Beijing, aiming to stop the virus from spreading any further. In all, 18 million people are estimated to be impacted by the restrictions, as well as millions more who had planned to travel for the Lunar New Year.

“The situation is still developing and from our perspective, the way that we can be most helpful is to create multiplex diagnostic tests that are affordable in any market in the world,” Egan told Fox News. “Our mandate is to be as helpful in a public health crisis as is possible and so we are moving quickly and aggressively to do just that. Our patented process is unique and could meaningfully support and assist other important initiatives being done by the CDC and WHO.”

Kourtney Kardashian Addresses Pregnancy Speculation

Westlake Legal Group 5e29b7ff2400009c03c97398 Kourtney Kardashian Addresses Pregnancy Speculation

In response, one follower asked Kardashian, the eldest of the Kardashian sisters, if she was pregnant.

“No I wish,” wrote back Kardashian, with the pregnancy emoji.

Kardashian has three children with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick: Mason, 10; Penelope, 7; and Reign, 5. 

Kardashian and Disick haven’t been a couple for years. Disick most recently has been linked to Sofia Richie, while Kardashian has been seen with Younes Bendjima.

Bendjima and Kardashian started dating in 2017 and split up in 2018, but sparked rumors of a rekindling at Kourtney’s Christmas Eve party this year when they were spotted together.

Perhaps a baby No. 4 is on the horizon for Kourt ― and Younes? But for now, according to Kourtney, she’s not adding to the Kardashian klan’s numbers.

House managers will lay out their legal case for first article of impeachment.

Westlake Legal Group 23dc-liveblog-garcia-facebookJumbo House managers will lay out their legal case for first article of impeachment.

The House impeachment managers are set to begin their second day of arguments on Thursday, building on about eight hours already spent arguing that President Trump’s conduct warranted his removal on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Representative Adam B. Schiff, Democrat of California and the lead impeachment manager, told senators that they would spend Thursday “go through the law, the Constitution and the facts as they apply to article one” of impeachment.

“We’ve introduced the case, we’ve gone through the chronology and tomorrow we will apply the facts to the law as it pertains to the president’s abuse of power,” Mr. Schiff said as he concluded Wednesday’s arguments.

The impeachment managers have until Friday evening to use their remaining hours of argument time to present before a rancorous Senate. Lawmakers, despite rules threatening imprisonment for talking, have grown increasingly restless while cooped up in the chamber — and few minds appear to be changed.

On Wednesday, the seven lawmakers tasked with presenting the case for Mr. Trump’s conviction took turns outlining the charges that the president attempted to pressure Ukraine for assistance in his re-election campaign by withholding critical military assistance and a White House visit for the country’s leader.

Several Senate Republicans emerged late Wednesday to inform reporters that they had not learned anything new after hours of presentation from the House.

How to protect yourself from coronavirus

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6125830819001_6125829439001-vs How to protect yourself from coronavirus Madeline Farber fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/health/wellness fox-news/health/infectious-disease/outbreaks fox-news/health/infectious-disease fox news fnc/health fnc c5bed4b1-fed8-585b-83d7-097b28779162 article

Amid an outbreak of a deadly pneumonia-like illness that’s claimed at least 17 lives and sickened hundreds of others, how can you protect yourself?

The novel coronavirus that’s to blame for the illnesses began in the Chinese city of Wuhan and has since spread to at least five countries — including the United States. Federal health officials this week announced that a man who lives in Seattle but recently traveled to Wuhan was diagnosed with the illness, ultimately sparking fears there could be more cases in this country.

CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK PROMPTS VIRGINIA SCHOOL TO CANCEL VISIT OF CHINESE EXCHANGE STUDENTS

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintains that the risk to the public is currently low. But since scientists have confirmed the disease is indeed transmissible between humans, there are a few things you can do to keep yourself as healthy as possible.

First, what is coronavirus? 

Coronaviruses, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), are a large family of viruses that can cause a range of illnesses, from the common cold to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) — the latter of which also began in China and infected some 8,000 people during a 2002-2003 outbreak. At least 770 died after it spread to other cities and countries across the world.

Coronaviruses can spread between animals and people — meaning they are zoonotic. Officials have said the current outbreak likely began at an animal and seafood market in Wuhan.

Know the signs 

Symptoms of 2019-nCoV, the novel coronavirus, have been reported to include fever, cough and shortness of breath.

The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Anthony Fauci, noted that the symptoms are similar to other respiratory infections. Most U.S. residents experiencing symptoms are likely infected with the flu or “some other virus,” he told Scientific American.

“But if they came from Wuhan,” he noted, “it’s likely to be the new coronavirus.”

“The symptoms are very common to a number of viruses, though, so [the association] is based on epidemiology [and is confirmed by the rRT-PCR test],” he added.

Keep your hands washed 

Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do to protect yourself from coronaviruses aside from following basic wellness practices.

The CDC recommends:

  •  Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds 
  •  Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with dirty hands 
  • Avoid close contact with sick people 

If you are sick, you can protect others by:

  • Staying home until you are well
  •  Avoiding close contact with others 
  • Cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
  • Keep objects and surfaces in your home or workspace clean and disinfected 

At this time, there is no vaccine to protect against coronavirus infections. That said, officials with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) confirmed to Fox News this week that they are working on a vaccine to combat the China-linked coronavirus.

Officials with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases have obtained the genetic sequence of the virus from the Chinese to begin developing a vaccine, Fauci told Scientific American.

However, “That doesn’t mean we will have a vaccine ready for use in three months; even in an emergency, that would take a year or more,” he said.
