    COSTCO has become the latest chain to fall victim to rising costs as the prices of some of their food court items have gone up. The cost of chicken bake and a solo order of soda are now a bit more than they used to be. 2The prices of two items at Costco's food court have gone up and customer's aren't happyCredit: Getty Chicken bake, a chicken breast with Caesar dressing baked inside a loaf of cheesy bread, is now up a whole dollar from $2.99 to $3.99.

    Naomi Osaka has pulled out of Wimbledon this year, citing a 'leg injury'. The former world No 1 has previously admitted that she was unlikely to compete at the Grand Slam after it was stripped of its ranking points. Following the invasion of Ukraine, the WTA and ATP made the bombshell decision, with Russian and Belarusian players prevented from participating. Osaka, 24, has also been struggling to fully recover from an Achilles issue she sustained during the Italian Open, and admitted the problem 'is being stubborn still'.  An update to the women's withdraw list has now confirmed her absence, with Eugenie Bouchard also pulling out in another blow to the All England Club.  'The decision (on ranking points) is affecting my mentality going into grass,' she said last month.

    An artificial intelligence (AI) tool that can transform famous paintings into different art styles, or create brand new artworks from a text prompt, may work by using a 'secret language', experts claim. Text-to-image app DALL-E 2 was released by artificial intelligence lab OpenAI last month, and is able to create multiple realistic images and artwork from a single text prompt. It is also able to add objects into existing images, or even provide different points of view on an existing image. Now researchers believe they may have figured out how the technology works, after discovering that gibberish words produce specific pictures. Computer scientists used DALL-E 2 to generate images that contained text inside them, by asking for 'captions' or 'subtitles'. The resulting images contained what appeared to be random sequences of letters. When the gibberish was inputted into the programme, it produced images of a single subject.

    Wimbledon has decided to remove the titles 'Miss and 'Mrs' in front of past female winners on the famous honours boards. The All England Lawn Tennis Club's winners boards - with the most prominent being in the clubhouse - have the honorifics in front of female winners, but not men.  From the start of the tournament in 1884, the female winner has had her title-first-name initial-surname on the board, with last year's winner Ashleigh Barty reading 'Miss A Barty.'  Yet the men's winner, Novak Djokovic, was just N Djokovic and having dropped using 'Miss' and 'Mrs' when umpires announced the names of female players during matches in 2019, the AELTC have modernised further by updating the honours boards so the women's names also now go by first-name initial, then surname.  The decision, revealed by The Times, comes as Wimbledon deal with the backlash following their announcement to ban Russian and Belarusian players from competing in this year's Championships.  The ATP, WTA and ITF responded by stating that no ranking points would be awarded for the Grand Slam event, rendering Wimbledon...

    New York (CNN Business)Heinz has been linked to the number 57 for more than a century. The company's "57 varieties" slogan was a key part of its early strategy to attract consumers. It's still featured on Heinz ketchup bottles today and is central to the brand's identity.But that famous number is completely made up. There weren't 57 Heinz varieties when Pittsburgh business magnate H.J. Heinz first invented the slogan in 1896. Nor when Heinz 57 sauce was introduced soon after. There aren't 57 now. There are, in fact, hundreds of Heinz varieties.The 57 on a Heinz bottle is more than just the right spot to smack to make the ketchup ooze out at .028 miles per hour. That number has stuck around for 126 years because it reinforces Heinz as a nostalgic and distinctly American food brand — the condiment you put on your hot dog at a baseball game or on a burger at a summer barbeque, marketing experts say. In the early 1890s, H.J. Heinz, once described by a biographer as a "marketing genius," sold bottled horseradish, pickles,...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I would like to point out something that happens quite frequently to me, and to other people I have seen, with hurtful results. Judith Martin  I was often told by family members and acquaintances that I bore a striking resemblance to a famous actor. Unfortunately, this is an actor who is not known for being handsome, but rather odd-looking and decidedly unattractive. No one ever stopped to think that this was boorish and thoughtless. Eventually, I drastically changed my hairstyle and grew facial hair in an attempt to change my appearance. Now, the remarks I get from total strangers — most recently waitstaff at an upscale restaurant — are that I bear a striking resemblance to another very famous film personality … again, someone known for being odd-looking and unattractive.

    A parade of world-famous elephants that have delighted the likes of Kim Kardashian, Steve Irwin and dozens of superstars for decades are starving to death because of the lack of tourists visiting Bali. Mason Elephant Park and Lodge, home to 30 rescued Sumatran elephants, is on the verge of closing because there's almost no revenue coming in from visitors.  It costs almost $500,000 to feed the herd each year - but with less than 100 official tourists on the island paradise in 2021 - the zoo is on its knees. Once its streets were flooded with travellers packed shoulder to shoulder, but now bars and shops sit empty after the tourism trade dried up during Covid travel bans.

    A comet made famous when the European Space Agency Rosetta mission landed on its surface has made its closest approach to Earth, astronomers have revealed.  Comet 67P came within 39 million miles of the Earth, or about 160 times further out than the moon, on Friday - the closest the space rock has come to our planet since it was first discovered in 1969, and the closest it will come for the next 200 years. Also known as Churyumov–Gerasimenko, it is a Jupiter-family comet, originally from the Kuiper belt, orbiting the sun every 6.45 Earth years. The duck-shaped comet, about 2.6 miles across, was nicknamed Rubber Ducky by the Rosetta team, who oversaw a visit by an orbiter and lander in 2014.  Rosetta, and its companion Philae lander, was the first mission to land on the surface of a comet, sending valuable data back to Earth about these orbital ice balls.

    (CNN)On the edge of the Scottish Highlands, three families of beavers slip, slide and splash between a series of ponds and swamps at the Bamff estate. The animals have been breeding there for almost two decades, after Paul and Louise Ramsay, who own the estate, released them into the wild. The Ramsays are often credited as pioneers in the reintroduction of Eurasian beavers, which are native to the UK but were hunted to extinction there during the 16th century. They are just the first chapter in what is now a nationwide rewilding movement. As Scotland hosts the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, calls on the government to support rewilding, regenerate peatland and reintroduce lost species are becoming louder -- and the potential benefits becoming clearer. With their dam-building, beavers can quickly modify a landscape, creating ponds and canals. "Paul and I wanted to bring back beavers in order to restore the wetlands and because we believe that animals that have been here historically should be returned," Louise Ramsay tells CNN. "What we learned as we went along that journey was...

    If you just get a hot oil pie from St. Pete’s forthcoming Colony Grill, you get one little stinger pepper in the middle.Colony Grill Stamford/Facebook Good news, pizza lovers. Colony Grill is headed down from Connecticut and to the 600 Block of downtown St. Petersburg where it’ll open its flagship Florida location at 670 Central Ave. The original pizza place in Stamford, Connecticut was a few decades old when it was bought out in 2010 by Chris Drury, Ken Martin, Paul Coniglio and Cody Lee—all 1989 Little League World Series winning teammates.

    Charles Darwin's book 'The Descent of Man' was warped by his racist and sexist views, according to an expert reviewing the work 150 years after its publication. Published on February 24, 1871, The Descent of Man is one of the most influential works ever written on the theory of evolution and natural selection. 'Like so many of the scientific tomes of Darwin's day' the book 'offers a racist and sexist view of humanity,' says Princeton University anthropologist Agustín Fuentes. Writing in Science, Fuentes accuses the famed British naturalist of letting racism, sexism and misogyny 'warp' the scientific process and influence his findings. The article accuses Darwin of being 'dangerously wrong' on a number of assertions made in the 150-year-old book, including presenting his data through a cloud of racism and sexism that suggest women and non-white people are 'less than'. He said teachers should tell children about Darwin and his revolutionary theory, but also about the man and the 'sexism and racism' of the day that he seemed to share.  'Today, students are taught Darwin was the 'father of evolutionary theory',...

    The NFL’s most famous chair is making its way west. Roger Goodell’s appearance at the 2020 NFL Draft resulted in a surprising humanization of the NFL commish, most notably with his wearing down during the night, looking like he worked a 10-hour day in about 3 1/2 hours. With the 2020 draft all virtual, Goodell conducted his end — announcing the picks of the teams — from the basement of his New York home. By the end of the first round, Goodell, wearing out, took seat on a chair in his basement, with a hefty jar of M&Ms at his side. Most fans noticed the incredibly luxurious and inviting chair on which Goodell planted himself on draft night, but it’s not the last we’ve seen of it: NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the chair is making its way from Goodell’s Long Island basement to Cleveland for this year’s NFL Draft. Remember the chair that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sat in while in his basement during the draft last year? Turns out… that chair is headed to Cleveland! Maybe it’ll...
    Italy wants to ban ice cream makers from pumping mixtures full of air and adding cheap ingredients in an attempt to preserve the integrity of its famed gelato stands. Plans under review by the Italian senate propose strict definitions of what constitutes 'gelato' and who can claim to be an artisanal ice-cream maker. Under the rules, ice cream must contain no more than 30 per cent air and be made using high quality ingredients and methods to qualify as gelato - with those caught passing off cheap imitations as the real thing facing fines up to £8,000. But while plans to protect one of Italy's best-known cultural exports have been welcomed by some, others say focusing too closely on what goes into gelato is nothing more than hot air.  A new bill before the Italian senate wants to define 'gelato' by law and restrict who can call themselves an 'artisanal maker' in an attempt to preserve the famous foodstuff (file) Alberto Manassei, one of Rome’s 'gelato masters', told The Telegraph that air in ice cream - which can be naturally...

    MOSCOW – A historic grocery store in central Moscow is to close its doors after trading for more than a hundred years due to legal issues and a drop in tourism caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Opened at the turn of the 20th century, Yeliseyevsky Store is known for its palatial, neo-baroque interior and wide selection of gourmet foods and souvenirs.

At the beginning of the year, Renault laid the foundations for its future strategy, and together with it presented the prototype of the new Renault 5, a classic that, curiously, serves to show the air of renewal that takes the brand in terms of design.

    By Andrew Downie | Reuters Brazil’s world famous Maracana stadium is to get a new name, after the Rio de Janeiro state legislature voted on Tuesday to change its official title to the Edson Arantes do Nascimento – Rei Pele stadium. The 80-year-old Pele, whose full name is Edson Arantes do Nascimento, played at the stadium many times for Brazil and scored his 1,000th goal there in 1969 – for Santos against local club Vasco da Gama. “It is a worthy homage to a man who is recognized the world over for his legacy in Brazilian football and for the corresponding services rendered to our country,” the deputy responsible for the project said. ‘Rei’ means ‘king’ in Portuguese.
