    PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — The World Cup circuit will be making two more ski racing stops in the United States by adding Alpine events at Palisades Tahoe in California and Aspen, Colorado. U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced the new competitions Tuesday, which will join two American stops already on the schedule: Killington, Vermont, and Beaver Creek, Colorado. It’s the most World Cup Alpine stops on American snow in a season since 1996-97. “The expansion gives us a signature opportunity to bring more attention to the sport domestically and inspire the next generation of U.S. athletes,” U.S. Ski & Snowboard president and CEO Sophie Goldschmidt said in a statement. The first World Cup stop in the U.S. this upcoming season will be when four-time World Cup overall winner Mikaela Shiffrin takes center stage over Thanksgiving weekend for a women’s slalom and giant slalom in Killington. A week later, Beijing Olympic super-G silver medalist Ryan Cochran-Siegle and the men’s tour take part in a super-G and two downhills along the Birds of Prey course in Beaver Creek. Typically, that’s where the...

    Call it the great carpet caper. Two young men wandered into the Madonna Inn late last month and snatched a rug bearing the gleefully gaudy hotel’s crest, complete with a large pink “M,” from the lobby of its steakhouse. Staff chased after the men, who bolted into a waiting getaway car, “but they were too fast,” said Connie Pearce, longtime manager of the San Luis Obispo hotel known for its themed rooms, ample pink decor and waterfall urinal. Guests watched the events unfold around 10:40 p.m. Sept. 25. Pearce, who has “cameras everywhere” in the facility her parents opened in the late 1950s, posted surveillance stills of the two men, both wearing masks, on Nextdoor and Facebook. Local news broadcast a story on the heist. Sympathetic comments have poured in but no concrete leads. Weeks later, the whereabouts of the rug and the identity of the thieves remain elusive. Although the throw, valued at roughly $250, has been replaced, it hasn’t been forgotten. Pearce hopes the thieves will return the relic and express remorse for their...
    Two men in a Los Angeles suburb were seen on camera brazenly leaving a TJ Maxx store with their arms full of shoplifted items.  "They didn’t even run out, they walked out," Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Jerretta Sandoz told CBS LA of the incident. "And so, that’s sending a message that we, the criminals, are winning." The video was recently filmed at a TJ Maxx in Granada Hills and shows two men leaving the store with their arms packed with clothing and other items, with one of the men carrying a large duffle bag that appears to be full of items.   "That looks great," one man comments in the video as the men walk by.  'LAWLESSNESS': SAN FRANCISCO'S SHOPLIFTING PROBLEM INCREASINGLY FRUSTRATES BUSINESS OWNERS, EMPLOYEES The LAPD is investigating the incident, but neither of the men have been charged or arrested.  "The employees at TJ Maxx have been told that, in these specific circumstances, it’s not worth it for you to go and physically attack, physically stop people that are walking out with this inventory," criminal defense attorney...
    GRANADA HILLS (CBSLA) — Two men casually walked out of a crowded TJ Maxx in Granada Hills recently, their arms full with what appeared to be stolen items. “That looks great,” one man said as video showed them headed toward the door.

    A newly-created South Asia Pacific and Middle East market will account for the majority of L'Oreal's new business over the coming decade — with men making up a big part of that, the French cosmetics giant has said. The combined geographical zone — dubbed internally as SAPMENA — will cover 35 markets across South Asia Pacific, the Middle East and North Africa. Headquartered in Singapore, the new zone comes in response to shared consumer trends and growth opportunities, said the region's president Vismay Sharma. "This region, or SAPMENA as we call it ... is going to be a major growth engine for us. This is where we will acquire the most number of consumers in the coming decade," he told CNBC Wednesday. The move also makes sense demographically, said Sharma. Collectively, the region is home to 40% of the world's population with a median age of 28. "Over 40% of the consumers (in the region) are less than 25 years old," he said. "That makes it extremely exciting for us and a very strategic market for the future." The 112-year-old...

They really turned me on.” But whereas Gillian, now 41, lost her virginity to a local lad when she was 16 she didn’t get intimate with a woman until she was in her late 20s.  And she was so turned on she went on to have relationships with both men and women at the same time.  With an ex-partner, a woman she was in a relationship with for seven years, they would swipe Tinder for available blokes then the two of them would jointly date them for a few months before moving onto the next one. 4Gillian told of her desires in a chat with FabulousCredit: Supplied “I’m polyamourous,” she says,...
    THE blocking of the Suez Canal by a giant ship has inspired a wave of hilarious memes. Two men in a tiny digger trying to free a ship bigger than the Eiffel Tower has inspired social media users - as has Austin Powers and Jose Mourinho’s tactics. 9The Ever Given as it became stuck in the canalCredit: Julianne Cona 9Credit: Twitter 9Credit: Twitter 9Credit: Twitter The 200,000 ton Ever Given remains lodged in the waterway, which is one of the world’s trade routes, and it’s feared the container ship could be stuck there for weeks. Tugs are trying to pull the vessel free with the help of a digger pulling up sand around the ships bow, which is wedged into the side of the canal. The spectacle of the digger dwarfed by the ship carrying out a seemingly unsurmountable job is the inspiration for many of the memes. “Me dutifully chipping away at my tasks,” reads one tweet, with a picture of the tiny digger highlighted beside the huge ship. An early meme was the Austin Powers trying to perform U-turn in...

    Like so many people, I've spent the past few months almost entirely within the four walls of my home.  In my case, in the bosom of my immediate family: a football-obsessed husband working from home, and two teenagers who are both permanently plugged into their devices.  Our isolation was made even more claustrophobic over Christmas when my daughter, 15, succumbed to Covid. Desperate for some laughter and gossip – a virtual vestige of my old social life – I logged on to a closed group of old friends on Facebook.  I found them avidly discussing the extraordinary story of Hilaria Baldwin, the yoga instructor and lingerie-clad Instagram-influencer wife of US actor Alec Baldwin. Hilaria Baldwin, the yoga instructor and lingerie-clad Instagram-influencer wife of US actor Alec Baldwin (pictured together), was accused of making up her Spanish heritage Hilaria, 36, had, it appeared, erased her wholly American parentage and upbringing in favour of a more exotic - but fake - Spanish heritage. She'd even changed her name from boring old Hillary to its Spanish equivalent. Hilaria spoke in a Spanish...
    Three mariners were rescued from a remote Pacific island after a helicopter saw their message – an enormous “SOS” written in the sand. The sailors, who were headed to the Micronesian island of Pulap, had been missing since Friday after their boat ran fuel and drifted off course in the middle of Micronesia, a nation consisting of thousands of islands and atolls, the Associated Press reported. Both the American and Australian militaries sent out crews in search of the missing sailors, the U.S. Coast Guard said in a statement Monday. As one American helicopter finished its search Sunday, one of the crew members on board saw the message in the sand, and the tattered vessel on the beach of Pikelot, a minuscule uninhabited atoll, AP reported. “That’s when we looked down and saw an island, so we decide to check it out and that’s when we saw ‘SOS’ and a boat right next to it on the beach,” said Lt. Col. Jason Palmeira-Yen, who was piloting the aircraft. Three #sailors rescued from remote island thanks to ‘#SOS‘ message on beach#Micronesia...
    (Reuters) - Three Micronesian sailors stranded on a remote Pacific island drew a giant SOS message in the sand to attract the attention of rescuers, who found them three days after they went missing at sea. Australian and U.S. aircraft located the men on tiny Pikelot island, about 200 km (124 miles) west of where they had set off in a seven-metre (23-ft) skiff before veering off course and running out of fuel. "I am proud of the response and professionalism of all on board as we fulfil our obligation to contribute to the safety of life at sea wherever we are," the Australian Navy's Capt. Terry Morrison said in a defence department statement. Morrison commands the HMAS Canberra, which sent a helicopter to the rescue after officials in the U.S. territory of Guam raised the alarm, following the men's failure to complete a 42-km (26-mile) trip between Pacific atolls. The helicopter landed on the island on Sunday to check the men's condition and gave them food and water after its crew spotted their appeal for help, close to their...
    Wellington, New Zealand — Three men have been rescued from a tiny Pacific island after writing a giant SOS sign in the sand that was spotted from above, authorities say. The men had been missing in the Micronesia archipelago for nearly three days when their distress signal was spotted Sunday on uninhabited Pikelot Island by searchers on Australian and U.S. aircraft, the Australian defense department said Monday. The men had apparently set out from Pulawat atoll in a 23-foot boat on July 30 and had intended to travel about 27 miles to Pulap atoll when they sailed off course and ran out of fuel, the department said.  Australian Army ARH Tiger helicopter lands on Pikelot Island in Micronesia where three men were found safe and healthy on August 2, 2020 after three days.
