Thomas Rhett, Wife Lauren Welcome Third Daughter – Taste of Country

February 11th, 2020

Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren Akins, welcomed their third child — a baby girl they’ve named Lennon Love Akins — on Feb. 10.

“Her sisters couldn’t be happier to finally get to kiss her little face,” Akins writes in a post announcing their third daughter’s arrival that also includes several sweet family pictures.

Baby Lennon was born Monday morning at 8:30AM weighing 9 lbs., 2 oz., and photos indicate her big sisters are taking well to their new roles:

“Lots of dark hair and blue eyes,” Mom adds. “We could not be more in love.” Baby Lennon has a full head of dark hair and is a perfect mix of her country star dad and her mother.

“My wife is just incredible and was a champion through the whole birth,” Rhett writes in his own post to Instagram. “The Lord is so good and I’m so grateful for my beautiful growing family.”

“Y’all pray for us as we switch from man to man defense to zone,” he jokes.

Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins married in October of 2012, and they welcomed their first daughter, Willa Gray, in May of 2017, after undergoing a year-long process to adopt her from Uganda. They welcomed their second daughter, Ada James, in August of that same year. She was the couple’s first biological child.

They revealed that they were expecting again in dual posts to social media on July 23, 2019.

“Excited to share that I will now be paying for 3 weddings I feel so blessed to say that our third child is on the way and it’s a girl!!” Rhett wrote, while his wife posted, “We decided we didn’t have enough princess dresses around the house so we’re adding another Akins baby girl to the family early next year.”

“Despite Thomas Rhett’s initial shock … we are absolutely over the moon for our baby girl!” she added.

Akins revealed that it had been difficult to keep her pregnancy secret, since she’d been showing since she was just seven weeks along. She added that she had been experiencing serious morning sickness already at that stage of her pregnancy.

The couple’s older daughters were already excited about the prospect of another sister. Willa Gray had been praying for the baby every night, and Ada James liked to touch her mother’s belly and talk to the baby.

Rhett is triumphing in his professional life, as well as his private life. Released in 2019, his most recent album, Center Point Road, has scored two No. 1 hits with “Look What God Gave Her” and “Remember You Young,” and the third single from the album, a duet with Jon Pardi titled “Beer Can’t Fix,” is currently at country radio.

Rhett’s also about to become a big brother again. His father, country singer and famed songwriter Rhett Akins, is expecting a son with his wife, Sonya, in March.

Sanders holds narrow lead over Buttigieg in New Hampshire Democratic primary – The Globe and Mail

February 11th, 2020

Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., with his wife Jane O’Meara Sanders, arrives to speak to supporters at a primary night election rally in Manchester, N.H.

Bernie Sanders has edged Pete Buttigieg in the New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary, winning a narrow victory for the left in a crowded field and divided party.

The self-described socialist Vermont senator had 26 per cent of the vote with 95 per cent of precincts reporting to 24 per cent for the moderate former South Bend, Ind. mayor — a slight improvement for Mr. Sanders over his virtual draw with Mr. Buttigieg last week in Iowa.

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, another moderate, scored a surprise third place with 20 per cent after a strong debate performance propelled a surge for her in the last week. It was a rough night for both progressive Elizabeth Warren and moderate Joe Biden, who were sitting around nine and eight per cent, respectively. Mr. Biden – once the race’s front-runner – jetted out of the state before voting had even finished.

The split result in the marathon race’s second contest leaves the competition deadlocked as it moves past two small, overwhelmingly white states and to more diverse Nevada and South Carolina.

At Mr. Sanders’s victory party in a university gymnasium in Manchester, New Hampshire’s largest city, legions of his mostly young supporters stamped the floor and chanted “Bernie beats Trump” and “Wall Street Pete” — a reference to Mr. Buttigieg’s fundraising among the country’s financial elites.

The crowd erupted into a chorus of boos when a jumbotron tuned to CNN broadcast Mr. Buttigieg’s speech.

Mr. Sanders himself tried to tamp down the divisions with a call for conciliation.

“This victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” he said from the stage, surrounded by his wife, children and grandchildren. “I want to take the opportunity to express my appreciation and respect for all of the Democratic candidates we ran against … No matter who wins, and we certainly hope it’s going to be us, we’re going to unite together.”

While the victory keeps Mr. Sanders’s momentum rolling, the result in his neighbouring state falls far short of his decisive 20-point win in 2016.

Combined with the result in Iowa, New Hampshire has allowed Mr. Buttigieg to continue in the race — even as he faces competition for moderate votes from Mr. Biden, who is polling better nationally, and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the former New York mayor who is skipping the early states to pour his vast fortune into later contests.

In his speech, Mr. Buttigieg made no reference to the fact that he had finished second.

“As we prepare to go west for the first in the west contest in Nevada, as we head to a state that looks like the future, I ask you to join us in taking a stand for a better tomorrow,” he said in Nashua, N.H.

Ms. Klobuchar breathed new life into her previously struggling campaign with a clutch performance. “I came back and we delivered,” she said in Concord, the state capital. “America deserves a president who is as resilient as her people.”

Mr. Sanders built his victory on a flood of enthusiastic volunteers and the best fundraising operation in the race, despite not raising money from wealthy donors.

He was treated like a rockstar on the hustings, with armies of fans queuing up outside his rallies and cheering deliriously for him. The night before the vote, more than 7,500 of them packed into a rally that included a performance by The Strokes.

To his supporters, Mr. Sanders’s appeal is a mix of ambitious policy promises – universal health care, free university tuition and aggressive action on climate change – and his perceived authenticity. He has been fighting for substantially the same political agenda since the 1960s.

“I love how consistent he’s been throughout history,” said Julianna Larue, a 19-year-old university student at his victory party. “He speaks a lot to the younger generations because he wants us to live in a better world.”

The boyish Mr. Buttigieg, for his part, has been on the ascendancy for the past two weeks, portraying himself as the party’s hope for stopping Mr. Sanders. The former mayor has sold himself as a conciliator who can bring moderate Republicans fed up with Mr. Trump into the party.

Paul Wilson, a 72-year-old mathematics professor, said Mr. Buttigieg was a safer bet to take on Mr. Trump because Mr. Sanders would be easier for the President to tarnish.

“What we’ve had for the last few years is this politics by assassination. They will do it for sure with Bernie because he’s a socialist,” said Mr. Wilson as he left a Buttigieg rally at Plymouth State University.

But Mr. Buttigieg faces a steep hill. He lags far behind in national polls, and is stuck in single digits in South Carolina and Nevada.

South Carolina, where some two-thirds of Democrats are black, will be a particular problem for Mr. Buttigieg, who has struggled to answer questions about disproportionate arrests of black people for marijuana possession in South Bend during his mayoralty.

Ms. Klobuchar is also mired in single digits nationally, and in both of the next two states.

New Hampshire is unrepresentative of the country as a whole: It has only 1.4 million residents and is 93 per cent white. But the state has made its disproportionate influence felt. Since 1972, the eventual Democratic nominee has placed either first or second here.

Ms. Warren reminded supporters Tuesday that there are still 48 state contests to go. And she delivered a sharp warning against negative campaigning.

“These harsh tactics might work if you’re willing to burn down the rest of the party in order to be the last man standing,” she said in Manchester. “We can’t afford to fall into factions.”

In the past week, Mr. Biden unleashed attack ads mocking Mr. Buttigieg’s inexperience and Mr. Buttigieg derided Mr. Sanders as a man with “extreme” policies.

Mr. Biden appeared to grow increasingly irascible as his prospects faded in New Hampshire. At one event, he called a university student a “lying dog-faced pony soldier” in an exchange over his poor result in Iowa. And on Tuesday, he left New Hampshire midway through the day as his rivals waited for the results.

“It ain’t over, man. It’s just getting started,” Mr. Biden said at a rally South Carolina.

Entrepreneur Andrew Yang, who gained a cult following on the internet with a promise to give every American US$1,000 a month if elected president, and Colorado Senator Michael Bennet both suspended their campaigns Tuesday after finishing in the low single digits. Billionaire Tom Steyer and Representative Tulsi Gabbard had similarly dismal finishes but looked set to stay in the race.

Margot Robbie and Christian Bale to star in new David O. Russell movie – The A.V. Club

Batman was barely in Suicide Squad and Harley Quinn didn’t show up for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but the Dark Knight and Dr. Quinzel are finally going to meet up in a new David O. Russell movie. Of course, they (probably) won’t be wearing their costumes and nobody’s going to refer to them as “Batman” and “Harley Quinn,” but we’ll know. Anyway, to put this in slightly more accurate terms, Margot Robbie and Christian Bale are going to star in the next David O. Russell film, which… we know nothing about. So maybe it will be about Batman and Harley Quinn? This comes from Variety, and it says “plot details are being kept under wraps.”

At the very least, Robbie, Bale, and Russell are all award magnets, especially when Robbie and Bale do things that aren’t comic book movies. As for Russell, his last few movies include Joy, American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, and The Fighter, which have a number of accolades (including Oscar nominations) between them. Basically, we’re saying this could be a big deal, whether or not Bale and Robbie are playing Batman and Harley Quinn. (It’ll get nominated for awards if they’re not, but it’ll make $50 million more at the box office if they are, so it’s a tough call.)

But for real, will they talk about Batman at all in between takes? Does Christian Bale ever think about Batman in his daily life in 2020?

Wuhan evacuees in US leave quarantine, might be celebrating too soon – Business Insider – Business Insider

February 11th, 2020
  • Patients flown out of Wuhan, China, by the US government were released from a 14-day federal quarantine at a Southern California air base on Tuesday.
  • The 14-day quarantine is based off the estimated incubation period for the Wuhan coronavirus.
  • The logic goes that, if you don’t develop symptoms during that period, then you are likely to be fine.
  • However, a study from China’s National Health Commission suggests that the incubation period of the disease could be as much as 24 days.
  • If it is that long, then getting through a 14-day quarantine is no guarantee that you won’t get sick.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

People evacuated from the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, celebrated the end of their quarantine at a Southern California airbase by throwing their face masks up in the air.

However, a new study released by the China’s National Health Commission suggests that the virus might be capable of beating even a 14-day quarantine.

The evacuees were held at the March Air Reserve base in Riverside, California, for two weeks, because that is the estimated incubation period of the coronavirus.

An incubation period is the time a person has a disease but does not show any outwards signs of it. The federal quarantine was imposed after one passenger attempted to leave isolation at the airbase.

The Chinese study, which has yet to be peer-reviewed, suggests that the incubation period for the virus, formally known as COVID-19, could be long as 24 days.

The study suggests that patients can infect other during in incubation period.

By comparison, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus, which ravaged China in the early 2000s, had an incubation period of seven days.

“We are comfortable with the 14-day period being long enough to capture the incubation period for this virus,” Nancy Knight, director of the Division of Global Health Protection at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said in a briefing.

“They have been watched more closely than anyone else in the United States at this point in time.”

Jose Arballo, a spokesperson for the Riverside County Department of Public Health, said during the briefing that the body temperatures of the evacuees were checked twice a day. Some passengers were also tested multiple times for the virus.

There are currently 13 confirmed coronavirus cases in the US. A couple in Chicago was the first confirmed person-to-person transfer of the disease in the US.

On a global scale, the virus has killed at least 1,115 people and infected more than 45,000.
