WASHINGTON - Demonstrators facing down a Supreme Court decision that could overturn the constitutional right to abortion planned rallies from coast to coast Saturday to express their outrage – and to mobilize for the fight ahead.More than 380 events were set from Maine to Hawaii, with the largest gatherings expected in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and other big cities, organizers said.In the nation's capital, activists planned to gather at the Washington Monument before marching to the Supreme Court, which is now surrounded by a security fence.Tens of thousands of people were expected at the "Bans off our Bodies" events, providing an outlet for anger and frustration for abortion rights activists after a leaked draft Supreme Court ruling suggested Roe v.

COVID-19 vaccine rules, equalization ‘derailed’ support for Kenney: Smith
Jason Kenney‘s imposition of COVID-19 vaccine mandate and other public health measures, along with the province’s desire for equalization changes, are what “derailed” his leadership, suggests leadership rival Danielle Smith.In an interview with The West Block’s Mercedes Stephenson, Smith said Kenney’s decisions to put in place public health measures as COVID-19 spiked were a miscalculation that led younger voters who normally vote conservative to draw “a line in the sand.”“That brought out a lot of mums and dads in their 30s and 40s who said, ‘We’ve got to do something different here.’ And I think the premier maybe miscalculated when he brought in vaccine passports after saying he wasn’t going to,” Smith said.She added she believes many Albertans feel he also hasn’t taken the referendum to push for changes to the equalization formula seriously enough. Alberta Premier Jason Kenney intends to step down as UCP leader after narrow leadership win When asked about Kenney’s decision to bring in vaccine mandates, which public health experts had recommended at the time, she claimed: “We saw very early on the vaccination wears off” and that people “could still get and transmit, get very sick even if you were vaccinated.”That is inaccurate.The variant currently circulating is Omicron, and a subvariant of that known as BA.2.

‘SNL’ finale: Pete Davidson says goodbye to his ‘home;’ Kate McKinnon abducted by aliens
Pete Davidson and Kate McKinnon (Photos by Paul Morigi and Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images) NEW YORK - Pete Davidson bid farewell to "Saturday Night Live" on the show’s finale this weekend after eight seasons with the late-night program. The 28-year-old made his final goodbye on the "Weekend Update" news segment, saying hello to co-hosts Colin Jost, Michael Che and "millions of people only watching to see if I bring up Kanye."Davidson began dating Kanye West's ex Kim Kardashian after she hosted the show last October, raising the ire of the "Stronger" rapper. Kardashian wasn't at the show because she's in Italy for her sister Kourtney Kardashian's wedding. "I never imagined this would be my life," he said, adding when he first started at 20 years old he was "just a skinny kid and no one knew what race I was." But he says now everyone knows he’s White because he "became hugely successful while barely showing up to work." FILE - Pete Davidson attends The 2022 Met Gala Celebrating "In America: An Anthology of Fashion" at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 02, 2022 in New York City.  (Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue)In a reference to Will Smith slapping "SNL" alum Chris Rock, Davidson self-deprecatingly joked that on one hand, he doesn’t condone audience members jumping onstage to hit comedians but "on the other it’s how I know all my shows will be sold out."The comedian said he would miss "SNL" creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels who he said gives him the best advice, including during his audition for the show."He looked me right in the eye and said 'I don't know, I don't think you're right for this show, so let's screw this up together,' " Davidson said.
