The 32-year-old pop music superstar seemingly put the kibosh on rumors she had a new man in her life after reports on Wednesday claimed "things have been heating up" between Adele and British rapper Skepta, 38.

A source close to the “Someone Like You” songstress told People magazine that the rumored pair “run in the same circles in London and she's having fun.".

Those circles include the likes of Drake, who often taps Skepta – real name Joseph Junior Adenuge – for collaborations due to the rapper’s unique Tottenham-sourced grime style.

The widespread prevalence of COVID in Orange County warrants continued public health measures, the study said: physical distancing, proper and consistent use of face masks, ventilation and hand hygiene.

And, in addition to contact tracing, county health authorities “may want to consider active surveillance of novel infections.” That would involve some 800 to 1,000 tests per week in a representative sample of residents, as well as a targeted component for higher-risk groups or places such as nursing home residents, laborers in high-density settings and highly impacted neighborhoods.

“Such surveillance, unlike clinic- or hospital-based strategies, would provide a less biased estimate of the rate of new SARS-CoV-2 infections,” the study said.

A statement from the University of Hawaii read: "All asteroids need to reradiate as heat the energy they absorb from sunlight in order to maintain thermal equilibrium, a process that slightly changes the orbit of the asteroid.

"Prior to the detection of Yarkovsky acceleration on Apophis, astronomers had concluded that a potential impact with Earth in 2068 was impossible.

"A long tail can be used to flick through the water, generating thrust, but the new species we've identified was probably better suited to hanging out near the bottom in shallow sea, using its short, flattened tail for balance, like an underwater float, allowing it to preserve energy while searching for prey," Shang added.

Meanwhile, the skeleton's high density ribs also suggest the reptile had large lungs, increasing the time the species could spend without surfacing.

Paleontologists found another feature that would help Brevicaudosaurus in its underwater exploits: The creature also had thick, long stapes -- bar-shaped bones in the middle ear, used for sound transmission -- which could have helped the reptile hear under the surface.

"Perhaps this small, slow-swimming marine reptile had to be vigilant for large predators as it floated in the shallows, as well as being a predator itself," said co-author Xiao-Chun Wu, a paleobiologist at the Canadian Museum of Nature, in a statement.

"That's not what our founding fathers said about criticizing the President of the United States."

The White House has criticized Taylor since his endorsement of Biden, and Trump called him a "disgruntled employee."

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement Wednesday after Taylor's identity was revealed that "this low-level, disgruntled former staffer is a liar and a coward who chose anonymity over action and leaking over leading."

"It is appalling a low-ranking official would be granted anonymity and it is clear the New York Times is doing the bidding of Never-Trumpers and Democrats," McEnany said.

Taylor said he was hopeful that more people inside the government would speak out against Trump, noting that several senior officials have done so in different ways since leaving the administration.

"I witnessed Trump's inability to do his job over the course of two-and-a-half years inside the administration.

Everyone saw it, though most were hesitant to speak up for fear of reprisals," Taylor wrote.

In the 2018 op-ed, which was titled, "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration," Taylor anonymously wrote that "many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations."

But Taylor said that original assertion was incorrect.

"The country cannot rely on well-intentioned, unelected bureaucrats around the President to steer him toward what's right," Taylor said Wednesday.
