Roaring or yawning? Incredible sleepy wildlife moments

  Roaring or yawning? Incredible sleepy wildlife moments Yawning occurs in just about every vertebrate animal. And yawning in many animals, including birds, is frequently associated with drowsiness. But not exclusively. For example, while most species of birds open their beaks in a fair impression of a mammalian yawn, no one has yet proven whether or not this "jaw stretching" also regularly includes the inhalation and exhalation of air. Some species of penguin employ yawning as part as part of their courtship ritual. And for other noisy and gregarious birds like parrots, yawning serves as a social signal. With primates, yawning is a sign of sleepiness. But a yawn can also convey complex social messages, for example, to demonstrate friendliness and aggression. Furthermore, yawning can be contagious. In humans, yawning is demonstrably contagious, as it is easily triggered by seeing, hearing, reading, or simply thinking about another individual yawning. Similarly, with primates, and especially monkeys, yawning is contagious between individuals. Anyone who owns a pet dog will know that canines often yawn after seeing people yawn. Cats also demonstrate this kind of empathy towards their owners. Cats and dogs, however, also advertise their need for sleep, and will yawn simply because they are genuinely tired and in need of rest. In the animal kingdom, many animals yawn, even creatures as diverse as fish and reptiles. Indeed, some snakes yawn after a good meal (in fact, it’s a way of realigning their jaws after eating).

The exchange followed recent news reports of past communications between Hunter Biden and his business partners that have raised questions about what Joe Biden knew about these foreign dealings. Biden's campaign has denied the former vice president had any involvement or made any money off these dealings, but Trump pressed his rival over the reports during the debate.

"All of the emails ... the horrible emails of the kind of money that you were raking in, you and your family. And Joe, you were vice president when some of this was happening. And it should've never happened," Trump said. "I think you owe an explanation to the American people."

Biden responded: "I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life."

He added: "We learned this president paid 50 times the tax in China, has a secret bank account with China. Does business in China." CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON OUR TOP STORY.

Hunter Biden's ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski confirmed Thursday that he met with former Vice President Joe Biden regarding his son's business dealings and alleged that someone involved with the controversy had warned him about coming forward.

“I was told this past Sunday by somebody who was also involved in this matter that if I went public, this information -- it would 'bury all of us, man,'" Bobulinski alleged.

Trump’s constant attacks on Kristen Welker show he doesn’t expect the debate to go well

  Trump’s constant attacks on Kristen Welker show he doesn’t expect the debate to go well The Trump campaign has been whining about anything and everything related to the second presidential debate.That’s why in the lead-up to Thursday’s second and final debate between Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Trump has preemptively attacked moderator Kristen Welker of NBC almost every day. That’s why his campaign has made such a big fuss over the debate topics and the addition of a mute button designed at making the debate more watchable than the first one was thanks to Trump’s antics. And that’s why they’ve seemed to be spinning a bad showing before the debate has even happened.

President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden traded charges of secretly taking money from foreign interests, after the Bobulinski, who told reporters before the debate that he had spoken with Biden and his son about a Chinese business venture that didn’t get off the ground

A far more civil debate saw Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden make multiple unforced errors, doubling down on 'Russiagate' and the Obama Making this about character, however, allowed Trump to bring up Biden ’ s son Hunter and his shady business dealings overseas – a scandal the

Bobulinski went on to accuse the former vice president of lying about his involvement with his son's business dealings, and indicated that his family sought to conceal his activities.

Specifically, Bobulinski alleges he met with the former vice president on May 2, 2017, introduced by his son, Hunter and brother, Jim.

"At my approximately hour-long meeting with Joe that night we discussed the Bidens' history, the Bidens' family business plans with the Chinese, with which he was plainly familiar, at least at a high level," Bobulinski said.

Fox News previously obtained text messages from Bobulinski, a retired lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, and the former CEO of SinoHawk Holdings, which he said was the partnership involving the two Biden family members. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

4 winners and 5 losers from the last Biden-Trump debate

  4 winners and 5 losers from the last Biden-Trump debate Joe Biden was a winner — as was moderator Kristen Welker.The first debate was a chaotic disaster thanks to Trump’s constant interruptions; the second one didn’t happen because Trump refused to agree to debate virtually while he had Covid-19 (they had dueling town halls instead). This time around, better moderation and the handy use of a mute button allowed both candidates to express their thoughts — leading to a mix of actual substantive policy exchanges and less-than-coherent mudslinging about families and personal finance.

McConnell, Schumer exchange barbs after vote to advance Amy Coney Barrett nomination

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer exchanged jabs Thursday, after a Judiciary Committee vote by Senate Republicans to advance Judge Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Despite Democrat members' boycott of the Judiciary Committee’s vote on Barrett, Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., pushed forward with the vote, resulting in a 12-0 result. But under the committee’s rules, at least two members of the minority party must be present in order for there to be a quorum to “transact” business.

Democrats have claimed the Barrett nomination was being rushed through in part to help the GOP dismantle the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare.

“To call this process illegitimate is being too kind,” Schumer said after the Thursday vote. “Senator Graham has broken the rules of the committee to move forward with a vote on Judge Barrett to rip away health care from millions.”

In response to the Schumer-led boycott of the Judiciary Committee’s vote, McConnell accused Schumer of “lashing out in random ways,” while on the Senate floor Thursday.

“Day after day, our colleague from New York performs the same angry speech with the same falsehoods,” McConnell said. “I’m sorry that he feels the need to constantly say things that are false.” CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

Joe Biden: From tragedy to verge of triumph in storied political career .
He has suffered profound personal tragedy and seen his earlier political ambitions thwarted, but veteran Democrat Joe Biden hopes his pledge to unify Americans will deliver him the presidency after nearly half a century in Washington. Rarely has the profile of opposing presidential nominees differed so sharply as in the 2020 race, which pits the empathetic Biden, with decades of leadership and a blue-collar upbringing, against brawling President Donald Trump, the billionaire businessman who insists he remains the outsider.
