    Pixar's 'Lightyear' has been banned in multiple counties due to the fact the animated film shows a same-sex kiss between two characters - a scene parent company Disney initially took out, but reinstated following complaints from offended staff.  As of Monday, a total of nine countries have barred citizens from seeing the Toy Story spinoff, set to hit theatres later this week. The ban has been largely confined to the Middle East, affecting markets in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar - but it has also stretched to other Muslim nations such as Malaysia and Indonesia. The scene in question reportedly shows the female lead in film, voiced by actress Uzo Aduba, kissing her 'female partner' - a display the nations' governments take issue with because it goes against their culture and religion. Early Monday, the UAE - home to Abu Dhabi and Dubai - was the first to reveal they had banned the picture, which features actor Chris Evans voicing the inspiration for Tim Allen's action figure Buzz Lightyear, made famous in the 'Toy Story' films. Pixar's...

Alongside the photo, the account wrote: “Match your intimates to your midnight attitude in sexy logo mesh designed to make a statement every night of the week.” Shortly after the brand teased the item, fans rushed to Reddit to slam Kim, 41, for selling the new lingerie set. FANS REACT While sharing their reaction to the item, one person wrote: "I don’t like it because it doesn’t really have a clear purpose. I’ve seen similar pieces though, and their purpose was just to look sexy. And this is very unsexy." Another added: "That's weird...you couldn't wear skims like Spanx because of the embroidery of the logo. Thigh would seep out the...
    Three people are missing and feared dead after a wildfire tore through several Colorado towns, quickly destroying nearly 1,000 homes as part of the latest in a string of US natural disasters.  'We're very fortunate that we don't have a list of 100 missing. But unfortunately we do have three confirmed missing people,' Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle told a press conference. At least 991 homes are thought to have been destroyed as the blaze raced through the towns of Superior and Louisville on Thursday, just outside the state's biggest city Denver, forcing tens of thousands of people to flee with little notice. Shocking aerial footage showed whole streets as little more than piles of smoking ash, destruction that appeared almost total but somehow left a few homes oddly untouched. Pelle said the search for the missing had been hampered by the destruction and snow.

    MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — There was an inspiring gathering Monday on Long Island. Survivors of lung cancer celebrated life. Once thought to be incurable, advances in treatment are granting years of quality life, and, in some cases, patients are now cancer free, CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported. READ MORE: Kathy Griffin Announces She Has Lung CancerBells tolled to celebrate life, including the life of 55-year-old Christina Lamarca, who remembered her heart-stopping prognosis with stage 4 lung cancer. “They basically gave me three months to live,” Lamarca said. That was five years ago. She then enrolled in a clinical trial of immunotherapy at NYU Perlmutter Cancer Center and has lived to meet her grandchildren. “Life is worth living for. I’m going to keep going. I ain’t going anywhere,” Lamarca said. Janeen Johnson-Gallo, a mother of five, also received a hopeless diagnosis. “In the back of my mind, it was oh my God, it’s a sentence for me,” Johnson-Gallo said. She, too, has been on breakthrough therapies. Ten trial participants gathered in Mineola as living proof that those with advanced lung cancer, the...
    Questions have been raised about US President Joe Biden's cognitive wellbeing after a car crash interview over his handling of the unfolding Afghanistan crisis.  America's oldest president provided jumbled responses to questions and mixed up details about his son in an interview with ABC. The stumbles did not make the broadcasted version but were revealed when a full transcript of the interview was published overnight.  It revealed the President incorrectly stated his late son Beau Biden worked for the Navy in Afghanistan, before correcting himself that he served for the Army in Iraq. It follows a spate of gaffes and slips of the tongue since the 78-year-old ran his successful presidential campaign in 2019. Mr Biden has previously suffered two brain aneurysms and a heart condition which makes the muscle beat too fast, causing dizziness and confusion. A top cardiologist told MailOnline today that both conditions are linked to memory difficulties and confusion, as well as dementia.   Dr Aseem Malhotra, an NHS consultant and expert in evidence-based medicine, said: 'Certainly there's a link [between the conditions and cognitive decline]. 'But...
    There is 'no signal' that the Oxford and AstraZeneca Covid vaccine is causing blood clots, scientists have said in response to scaremongering from European officials.  At least five EU countries have stopped using the jab on members of the public after reports of people developing clots after having it. But regulators and scientists say there's no proof that the vaccine had anything to do with the clots and data suggests they are no more likely than average. AstraZeneca said it has reported just 37 blood clot-related events out of 17million people who have been vaccinated so far in the UK and EU. This was equal to a rate of 0.0002 per cent or one in every half-a-million people. There had been 15 cases of deep vein thrombosis which usually affects the legs, the company said, and 22 pulmonary embolisms in the lungs. The chief medical officer at the firm said these numbers were actually lower than the 'hundreds' that would normally be expected in an average group that size.  And one scientist said countries ditching the vaccine were 'reckless' because Covid-19...
    President Joe Biden unveiled his immigration plan on Thursday, a proposal that offers one of the fastest pathways to citizenship of any measure in recent years.  However, the plan doesn't contain any details on enhanced border security, which past measures have included as a way to win Republican votes. Congressional Democrats released the legislation Thursday on Capitol Hill. And, although their party controls Congress, with a 50-50 tie in the Senate it will be a tough slog for Biden's plan, which will provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. Biden tapped the children of immigrants take the lead in Congress. The legislation's main sponsors are Democratic Rep. Linda Sánchez of California, the sixth of seven children raised by Mexican immigrants, and Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, the son of Cuban immigrants. 'We have an economic and moral imperative to pass big, bold and inclusive immigration reform,' said Menendez said in unveiling the 353-page legislation. Menendez said Democrats have failed in the past because they have too quickly given in 'to fringe voices who have refused...

    Joe Biden's wife Jill will speak during her keynote Democratic convention speech about healing a 'broken family' as she weaves her husband's story of confronting loss and tragedy with the nation's struggles. Biden, a community college teacher, will speak at her husband's virtual convention about the toll the coronavirus is taking on the nation. “You can hear the anxiety that echoes down empty hallways. There’s no scent of new notebooks or freshly waxed floors,' she will say, according to advance excerpts. 'The rooms are dark and the bright young faces that should fill them are confined to boxes on a computer screen.' Jill Biden, wife of U.S. Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, delivers her keynote speech Tuesday night But she is certain to speak about her husband's ability to confront the problem, as well as his empathy and history of loss – which the Biden campaign stressed throughout the Democratic primaries. She also will compare his personal tragedies to the nation's struggles with the pandemic. Biden has called his campaign a fight for the 'soul...
    A mutated version of the coronavirus that has gripped Europe and the West is more infectious because it doesn't break as often while inside the body, a study has found. Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute in Florida say the 'spike protein' that the virus uses to attach to cells in the airways has adapted since January. It used to break off regularly while trying to bind to receptors in people's airways, which it would use to gain entry to the body, but is now more resilient, they say. A genetic mutation which scientists around the world have been picking up on for months appears to have caused this spike to be less likely to snap, and also to force the coronaviruses to produce more of them to make itself more infectious. As a result the virus appears to be approximately 10 times more infectious than it was when it first jumped to humans in China at the end of the year, scientists say. The mutated version of the virus, dubbed G614 - a change from D614 - is a...
    Michael Keaton is reportedly in talks to pick up the cowl again and reprise his role as the Dark Knight in Warner Bros. and DC Comics’ upcoming Flash movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Keaton famously played Gotham’s vigilante in Tim Burton’s Batman movies from the ‘90s. Currently Keaton is just in talks for The Flash, which will see Justice League’s Ezra Miller reprise his role as the super speedy Barry Allen. But Keaton could also reprise the role in “several other DC-oriented film projects,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. “Sources tell THR that the role being envisioned for the veteran actor is akin to the role played by Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, something of a mentor or guide or even string-puller,” according to The Hollywood Reporter, including Warner Bros.’ upcoming Batgirl movie. Ezra Miller’s Flash made his big debut in Justice League, which saw Ben Affleck play Batman. So how can the same Flash meet two different Batmen? One answer could be time travel: Miller’s Flash movie is likely based on...
