Mack, 31, starred for the Bears for four seasons before an injury ended his playing in the 2021 season. The Bears traded him to the Los Angeles Chargers in March.

Italy’s likely next Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni has vowed to fight against speculators she claims are distorting the energy markets and lower the costs of energy for Italians while also promoting those who create wealth in the country. The firebrand leader of the national-conservative Brothers of Italy (FdI) stated that energy costs for Italians remain a major priority for her likely incoming government. “The priority will be the cost of energy, the issue is not how to compensate for speculation but how to stop it, we cannot continue to give billions to speculators,” Meloni told a crowd of the National Confederation of Direct Farmers (Coldiretti), Italy’s largest association representing agriculture, over the weekend, Il Giornale reports . “You know that in these days I have thinned out my presence to study the most urgent dossiers, in case we are called to form the new government,” Meloni told the crowd and added, “But I decided to come here to you who represent Italian … [Read more...] about Meloni Vows to Fight Against Energy ‘Speculators’ and Lower Costs
The new term could provide fresh impetus to protests, unfortunately. Photo: Andrew Lichtenstein/Corbis via Getty Images It is generally accepted that the 2021–22 term of the U.S. Supreme Court was the most consequential — and, for progressives, the most damaging — in living memory. During their summer recess, the justices heatedly raised and angrily rebutted charges that the Court’s radically conservative major-decisions binge had risked its legitimacy. Now the Court is back for a new term in which it will have multiple opportunities to further the idea that it’s little more than an extension of the Republican Party — or to mitigate that reputation. It’s unlikely that any pending case will produce a result as explosive as the 6-3 decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization , which swept away any federal constitutional right to abortion. But there will be plenty of opportunities in the 2022–23 term for the right-wing majority that reversed Roe v. Wade … [Read more...] about The Supreme Court Is Back and Ready to Do More Damage

Local Data , Patch Staff Posted Reply NORTH HILLS, PA — Home prices in the United States have risen dramatically in large swaths of the country, but the same can’t be said for all rentals.
