Here are some of the notable people celebrating birthdays today, including Bette Midler, Golden Brooks, Janelle Monae, Riz Ahmed, Sarah Silverman, Zoe Kravitz and more. 

In 2013, Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson rushes for 211 yards in a 23-20 overtime win over Chicago. He surpasses 10,000 yards for his career in just 101 games, needing the third-fewest games behind Eric Dickerson and Jim Brown.

    As world leaders gathered for the COP28 climate summit in Dubai, the collapse of a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war has plunged the conflict back into open combat and cast a long shadow over the talks. Israel’s top diplomat for the Middle East huddled with leaders at the summit Friday as his colleagues went through a book of posters of those held hostage by the militant group Hamas. Meanwhile, just a street away at the Palestinian territories’ first-ever pavilion, an official gave a horrified look when Associated Press journalists gave her the news the war restarted. Officials also discussed the war, including U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

    Israeli fighter jets hit targets in the Gaza Strip minutes after a weeklong truce expired, as the war with Hamas resumed in full force. Black smoke billowed from the besieged territory Friday, and Israel dropped leaflets over parts of southern Gaza urging people to leave their homes, suggesting it was preparing to widen its offensive. In Israel, sirens warning of incoming rockets blared at several communal farms near Gaza, a sign that militants also restarted attacks. There were no reports of hits. The renewed hostilities heightened concerns for Palestinians in the tiny coastal enclave as well as about 140 hostages who remain there. Qatar said negotiators were still trying to reach an agreement on restarting the cease-fire.

      Aaron Rodgers defied conventional medicine by returning to practice just 77 days after surgery for a torn Achilles tendon. How he did it should be the No. 1 question instead of questioning his motivation. Even if Rodgers doesn’t play again for the New York Jets this season because it wouldn’t make sense if they’re eliminated from the playoff race, his remarkable recovery sets a new standard. Every player who tears an Achilles tendon should call Rodgers and ask him about his surgical procedure, how he rehabilitated, what he ate and drank. No question is a stupid one.

      CAPE MAY – Firefighters from throughout Cape May County and beyond joined officials and residents for the opening of the new $5.13 million headquarters for the Cape May Fire Department on Wednesday.
