On this show we've often flagged the toxic culture of online speech. Now comes Covid. Just how much has all that extra screen time these past months amplified and enabled toxic behavior?

From cyberbullying classmates to abusive partners and total strangers who feel they can just let loose, how much of a toll has this pandemic taken on women? We ask our panel  what can be done to stop online violence.
The COVID-19 pandemic is prompting more people to cook at home this Thanksgiving. Typically, there are more than 1,400 cooking fires on the holiday, and that number is expected to increase this year.

Instead of water, it's best to put a pot lid over a grease fire or use a fire extinguisher to put it out, Hickman said.
Former Steelers LB Ryan Shazier reflects on a severe spinal cord injury he suffered in 2017, the long road to learning how to walk again and starting a spinal rehabilitation fund to help those with a similar story.
