    (CNN)Two long waits were ended in historic fashion at the British Women's Open in Scotland on Sunday. As Muirfield -- home to a golf club founded in 1744 -- played host to the women's event for the first time, Ashleigh Buhai lifted her first major title on her 221st career LPGA Tour start.On an enthralling final day befitting of the occasion, the South African snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, roaring back from the brink of a late collapse to pip three-time major champion Chun In-Gee in a nail-biting four-hole playoff. In doing so, Buhai added her name to an illustrious list of South African golfers to have won at Muirfield, the site of maiden men's Open wins for Gary Player and Ernie Els.Yet while the legendary duo have 13 major titles between them, Buhai will forever hold the unique honor of being the first women's Open winner at the fabled Scottish links course. With Muirfield overturning its male-only membership policy in 2017, the added significance of triumph is not lost on Buhai.Read More"To add my name to that...
    (CNN)As Linn Grant left the course at Halmstad Golf Club in Tylösand, Sweden, she found herself swarmed by a group of young fans.Clamoring for anything and everything in the Swede's golf bag, they excitedly waved pens in the hopes of securing an autograph. Grant duly obliged, signing everything from hats to golf balls.It was a buzz worthy of a landmark achievement: Grant had just become the first-ever female winner on the DP World Tour with her victory at the Scandinavian Mixed event on June 12. And as if making history wasn't enough, she did so in dominant fashion, cruising the 156-player field. A weekend-best eight-under 64 on the final day confirmed an emphatic win, with Grant's 24-under par seeing her finish nine shots clear of runners up Marc Warren and fellow Swede Henrik Stenson, and 14 shots clear of the next female player, Gabriella Cowley.The win was made all the sweeter by the fact that it was a victory at home -- in all senses of the word. Boyfriend Pontus Samuelsson caddied, with friends and family supporting among an ecstatic...

    Team USA and Team Canada made history on the ice during the gold medal game at the 2022 Winter Olympics. But it wasn’t the only bit of hockey history made that night. On Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2022, Michigan native, Kaitlin Urka, NBC Sports and Olympics Producer made history by becoming the first woman ever to produce the women’s hockey gold medal game broadcast at the Winter Olympics, one of the 15 games Urka produced over the span of 17 days. “I’m excited to have been the first, but I truly hope I’m not the last, and instead just one in a long line to come,” Urka told FanSided. Wednesday night’s game was one for the record books, averaging 3.54 million viewers, more viewers than any NHL game this 2022 season and the second most-watched hockey game in the United States since 2019 — the most-watched NHL game in 2019 being Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and the St.Louis Blues, with an estimated nearly nine million viewers. This year was the ninth time in Olympic history...
    (CNN)In a TikTok video with more than 30 million views and 7 million likes, a chipmunk is paying for groceries at the cashier. The rabbit cashier asks, "Paper or plastic?" The chipmunk ominously replies -- and repeats, at the rabbit's confusion, "Mouth." In the next frame, the groceries (a pile of nuts) and the rabbit's hand are engulfed by the chipmunk in one mouthful. This points audiences to the punchline, and an animal fact -- chipmunks' cheeks can expand to a size three times larger than their heads.Read MoreBy animating the chipmunk's elastic cheeks (and morbid tendencies), the creators with Natural Habitat Shorts say they're experimenting with "animals in human situations" -- allowing the creatures to turn the tables for entertainment and drop some knowledge in the process. @naturalhabitok Fun fact: Chipmunks have cheek pouches used to store food and can expand up to 3 times larger than their head. ???????? ##ChewyChattyPets ##naturalhabitok ♬ original sound - Natural Habitat Shorts "To animals, everything they do is very mundane.

    (CNN)One of the greatest sources of anxiety for Alaina Castillo has been the letter R.Rolling Rs is at the heart of learning Spanish and one of its most challenging trills, especially for those unexposed to the language regularly as a young child.This is a lesson the 21-year-old singer spent years learning in and out of school. And it's one that has paid off for Castillo, particularly on TikTok, which has made efforts to embrace and foster its Hispanic creators. The Houston native is part of a flourishing Hispanic and Latinx creator community that has amassed huge followings through videos that succinctly translate cultural traditions and history for a young and captive TikTok audience. One major factor to this growth has been Covid-19, which forced millions of Americans out of work and scores into lockdown during the early months of the pandemic.TikTok called itself an "economic lifeline for many of its users," according to a lawsuit the company filed against then President Donald Trump in August 2020 to prevent him from banning the app in the United States. It defended the...
    There had been a question of whether the Republicans were going to stick with the losing president. That question seems settled now. But sticking with the losing president raises another question, one that's not getting nearly as much attention as the previous question. Aren't the Republicans taking an enormous electoral risk? Maybe they think, not unreasonably, that political history is on their side. After all, the party out of power usually takes one or both chambers of the United States Congress during a president's first term. The electorate has often behaved as if it were seeking a balance of power, so that one party doesn't have too much and the other too little. Or maybe the Republicans believe they don't need history. After all, colleagues at the state level are exploiting the losing president's complaint about having lost as a result of voter fraud. They have passed reams of election laws to address a crime that rarely happens, but whose effect will almost certainly be the suppression of non-white votes. Maybe the Republicans think they can stick with the losing...

    Eminem, Ed Sheeran, and Katy Perry each have three diamond-certified songs. Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic / Didier Messens/Redferns / Cameron Spencer/Getty Images The RIAA gives diamond certifications to songs that have gone platinum 10 times. Bruno Mars recently became the first artist in history to have five diamond-certified songs. Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" is the fastest song in history to earn the certification. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. There have been plenty of summer bops, one-hit wonders, career-making anthems, and headline-making singles. There are songs you feel like you can't escape and songs you hear on every radio station. But just a chosen few have been played so much, they've gone platinum 10 times over. These songs can earn a diamond certification, the highest honor bestowed by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Since the official diamond award was unveiled in 1999, it has been awarded sparingly — if a song has moved at least 10 million equivalent units by combining sales and streaming numbers, and if an artist or label requests certification.

    Getty Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets rocking the old school New York Titans jersey! It’s time to party like it’s 1969! On Thursday afternoon the NFL made an exciting announcement for the 2022 season. Throwback uniforms will be returning to the gridiron next year. The league shared the news in a memo. Back in 2013, the league stopped using alternate helmets over safety concerns. This will snap a nine-year drought. Teams that intend to take advantage of this rule change must notify the league office by no later than July 31, 2021. This opens up an array of interesting options for teams like the New York Jets.Taking a Gander at Gang Green’s Uniform History GettyMark Sanchez of the New York Jets rocking the New York Titans throwback uniform.

    Eminem, Ed Sheeran, and Katy Perry have the most diamond-certified songs with three each. Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic / Didier Messens/Redferns / Cameron Spencer/Getty Images The RIAA gives diamond certifications to songs that have gone platinum 10 times. Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" is the most recent song to receive the distinction. Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" is the fastest song in history to be certified diamond. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. There have been legions of summer bops, one-hit wonders, career-making anthems, and headline-making singles.

    (CNN)Being nominated to serve in a presidential Cabinet is, obviously, a huge honor. It's also been decidedly perilous in recent years.Dating all the way back to Bill Clinton's first term, at least one Cabinet pick has flopped -- either dropping out after a scandalous news story breaks or failing to gather the needed support among senators to be confirmed. (Zoe Baird! Tom Daschle! Andy Puzder!)Not so -- at least not yet -- for President Joe Biden's Cabinet picks. At present, 7 of the 23 Cabinet-level nominees Biden has put forward have been confirmed by the Senate -- including his secretaries of State, Defense, Treasury and Homeland Security.And what's as fascinating is that even some of the picks that appeared headed for rough seas now look likely to get confirmed. Take Neera Tanden, Biden's pick to run the Office of Management and Budget. Tanden's nomination was met with widespread skepticism due, at least in part, to her long history of tweets attacking senators by name. Her nomination appeared even more imperiled when Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vermont), who had been on the...

    The Houston Astros are on the brink of history. With a victory in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Astros come within one win of repeating a feat only the 2004 Boston Red Sox have done -- come back from a three-game deficit to win a best-of-seven series. SPRINGER, VALDÉZ HELP ASTROS TOP RAYS 7-4, FORCE ALCS GAME 7 In 2004, the Red Sox made a stunning comeback against the New York Yankees. Boston then won the World Series over the St. Louis Cardinals -- its first at the time since 1918 and effectively breaking “The Curse of the Bambino” and leaving all folklore of past misfortune behind. The Astros still have a hill to climb to get past Tampa Bay on Saturday night, and they won’t be as lucky to leave their past behind them just yet. The shadow of the Astros’ cheating scandal still looms large for baseball fans. Houston was found to have been using a camera in center field at Minute Maid Park and using a trash can...
