    NEXT time you visit Starbucks, remember that multiple different names were considered for the coffee chain – and in an alternate universe, you're drinking a "Cargo House" vanilla bean frappe. That's just one of the names almost used by executives, who borrowed the name Starbucks from an unusual but much-beloved source. 2Starbucks is a famous institution, but the coffee chain almost had a different nameCredit: Getty When the company was in its early days, there were several potential names on the list, said co-founder Gordon Bowker in an interview with the Seattle Times. The founders debated giving the business a coffee-centric name but also veered into literary territory. "We were thinking of all kinds of names and came desperately close to calling it Cargo House," Bowker told the outlet. He also said that it was a good thing the company passed on the name, which "would have been a terrible, terrible mistake."

    A Disney historian has come forward to dismiss the idea that the famous family are united against Florida's controversial 'Don't Say Gay' bill.  Historian Jim Korkis described the family, which still owns a 3 percent stake in the company, as 'very conservative' and 'private,' in an interview with the New York Post.  This comes as the Disney corporation clashes with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over the bill that is officially known as Parental Rights in Education. The bill, which will become law from July 1, bans formal lessons on gender identity for children from kindergarten through to third grade.  When the bill first passed in March 2022, Disney CEO Bob Chapek was initially silent. But, days later, the company public said it opposed the bill following internal pressure from workers and the public.  Some members of the Disney family, like Abigail Disney and her brother Roy P. Disney - whose stepdaughter is transgender - have been openly critical of the bill, but their views don't appear to be mirrored by some family members.  'In general, the whole family is very conservative...
    Keep a diary,’ said Mae West, ‘and some day it will keep you.’ I’ve been keeping mine for 30 years, and it’s certainly kept me well in return, providing enough juicy literary fodder for five best-selling books and 630 columns for The Mail On Sunday over the past 15 years. But as any sociable diarist can attest, the best time to leave a party is when people still want to hear more from you, not less . . . So, as I prepare to focus on my new global daily TV show launching in 2022, I’m packing up my gossipy quill and giving the world’s celebrities and public figures a much-needed break from my beady eye. It won’t be an easy transition into non-diary-writing life. I dined with the irrepressible Dame Joan Collins on Tuesday, and she regaled an eye-popping story about Boris Johnson and Katie Price that made me gasp out loud. (You’ll just have to wait for the great lady’s own next volume of diaries to find out what it was …) But as a farewell, I thought...
    The American Civil Liberties Union tore into President Joe Biden on Wednesday night after he denied reports that his White House is planning on paying migrants separated under the Trump administration $450,000 each or $1 million per family. Biden had dismissed the reports as 'garbage' at a White House press conference just hours earlier.   The head of the ACLU said the 78-year-old president's statement means he either hasn't been 'full briefed' on the matter or is 'abandoning' his promise to undo Donald Trump's more strict immigration laws. 'President Biden may not have been fully briefed about the actions of his very own Justice Department as it carefully deliberated and considered the crimes committed against thousands of families separated from their children as an intentional governmental policy,' ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero told Fox News. 'But if he follows through on what he said, the president is abandoning a core campaign promise to do justice for the thousands of separated families. 'We respectfully remind President Biden that he called these actions "criminal" in a debate with then-President Trump and campaigned on...
    Friday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” network contributor Jonathan Turley weighed in on President Joe Biden pledging to use his executive authority to restrict Second Amendment rights. Turley said one of the provisions included in Biden’s announcement, ref flag laws, could be named after the president’s son, Hunter Biden. He pointed to a 2018 incident when the younger Biden’s gun was thrown out by the widow of his deceased brother because she was concerned about his mental stability. “It was striking that the red flag provision could very well be called the Hunter Biden Act,” Turley asserted. “I mean, this was a provision written for precisely what seems to have occurred in 2018. At that time, Hunter Biden was involved in an intimate relationship with the widow of his late brother, Beau, and she apparently was so concerned about his stability that she attempted to throw out his gun into a bin that was not far from a schoolyard. That led to an effort to reclaim or find the gun and the intervention of local law enforcement.” He continued,...

    “About 100,000 people lost their lives during the first wave. The deaths that followed could have been avoided or considerably reduced,” regrets Deborah Birx, the former US coordinator of the fight against Covid-19, in a CNN documentary on behind the scenes of the management of the health crisis in the United States. Taking a severe look at Donald Trump’s methods, the scientist believes, along with five other colleagues, that he is largely responsible for the extent of the disaster. Deborah Birx thus tells how, from the start, the coronavirus was underestimated by the former tenant of the White House and his teams. “I could see the avalanche coming and I could see how unprepared we were,” explains the public health specialist. This is why she decided to join the experts responsible for advising the authorities. But she quickly became disillusioned and found herself facing people who were not necessarily inclined to listen to her. She thus gives the example of an event at the Rose Garden during which it was clearly specified that participants did not want to wear...
    Loading the player... Less than two weeks after a violent mob that included groups of white supremacists stormed the U.S. Capitol in a deadly attempt to overthrow democracy, fueled by a lie they believe that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, allies of President Donald Trump shared messages of unity on the day America celebrates the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King.  The irony was not lost on CNN Tonight host Don Lemon , who criticized Trump supporters like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany, who shared quotes from the iconic civil rights leader Monday on social media.  Don Lemon speaks onstage in December 2019 during the Robert F.

Kennedy Human Rights) Lemon called out Republican figures like Vice President Mike Pence and First Daughter Ivanka Trump, who, he said, stood by “every racist attack” from the outgoing president, including that he recently sought to disenfranchise “millions of Americans, many of them voters...
    Rudy Giuliani revealed in a radio interview Tuesday that he is the latest Donald Trump associate to be getting an experimental treatment after testing positive for the coronavirus. Giuliani made the disclosure from George Washington University, where he is being treated for the coronavirus, on a day it was revealed his co-counsel in Trump's effort to overturn the election results, Jenna Ellis, also tested positive. Giuliani said he was taking remdesivir, a reference to an antiviral medication that received FDA approval for emergency use against COVID-19 in October. He also said he was taking a steroid, dexamethasone, the same drug Trump took during his own hospitalization for the coronavirus. 'The minute I took the cocktail yesterday I felt 100 per cent better,' he said. 'It works very quickly. Wow!'  Rudy Giuliani called into a radio show from his hospital bedside. He is pictured with Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis. Both tested positive for coronavirus He also revealed that he was consulting with the White House physician, who tends to President Trump, the first family, and others on the White House...
    MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd awkwardly acknowledged his former colleague Keith Olbermann without uttering his name on Tuesday's installment of "Meet the Press: Daily." It began after Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, released a lengthy statement on the "current state of politics," condemning President Trump for his recent round of attacks against his political foes -- including Sen. Kamala Harris, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and members of the Obama administration.  KEITH OLBERMANN WALKS AWAY FROM ESPN GIG TO BASH TRUMP ON DAILY YOUTUBE SHOW However, Romney also called out Democrats for their "blistering attacks," citing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tearing up Trump's State of the Union speech and remarks Olbermann recently made on his newly launched YouTube channel, in which Olbermann called the president a "terrorist." During an interview with Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., Todd read much of Romney's statement to get Durbin's reaction but then summarized the rest of it and alluded to the Olbermann excerpt.  "He [Romney] goes on to name-check a couple of people, somebody from the very far left in the media world, and he called out Nancy Pelosi for some...
    President Donald Trump missed an opportunity in the first presidential debate when he failed to debunk Joe Biden’s infamous “Charlottesville very fine people hoax.” The hoax is the false claim that Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people” in 2017 when, in fact, he said they should be “condemned totally.” (The “fine people” were non-violent marchers on either side of a statue dispute.) Vice President Mike Pence should not miss the opportunity against Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) if it arises. Harris spread the “very fine people hoax” long before Biden. In fact, she was one of the first. In January 2019, she launched her campaign a reference to Charlottesville at a rally in Oakland, California — just as Biden would launch his with the hoax in April. Harris did not include the “hoax” part then — but she did so the next day in a town hall hosted by CNN, telling Jake Tapper: “We have seen when Charlottesville and a woman was killed that we’ve had a president who basically said, well, there were equal sides to this.” In fact, Trump...
    Last month, Novak Djokovic defaulted from the US Open after striking a ball in anger and unintentionally hitting a linesperson in the neck. Seth Wenig/AP Images Novak Djokovic accidentally sent a tennis ball flying into a line judge's face at the French Open on Monday. Last month, the world's top-ranked men's tennis star was disqualified from the US Open after hitting a ball in anger and unintentionally striking a linesperson hard enough that it knocked her to the ground. After his victory at Roland-Garros on Monday, Djokovic referred to the day's incident as "very awkward déjà-vu" before commending the judge for handling the situation in "a very strong and brave way." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Less than a month removed from his default-worthy incident at the US Open, Novak Djokovic once again hit a ball into a line judge. This time, the completely unintentional error came at Roland-Garros, where the world's top-ranked men's tennis player was facing off against 24-year-old Karen Khachanov in the fourth round of the French Open. During the opening set, Djokovic...
    Jason Lewis, the endorsed Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, said in previously unreported comments that Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old Black high school student shot and killed by George Zimmerman in 2012, was a “thug” and “not a good kid.” In 2013, Zimmerman was acquitted at trial after claiming he killed Martin in self-defense. According to audio reviewed by MinnPost, Lewis said on his radio show in 2013: “Trayvon Martin was a thug. Trayvon Martin was a kid in trouble already. He was not a saint. He was not a role model. Let me clear about this: He was not a good kid.” Lewis said that Zimmerman was “being a good Samaritan” the night he killed Martin. He added: “What are neighborhood watches supposed to do!” In another clip, Lewis describes Martin as “guilty.” Running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Tina Smith in the wake of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin killing George Floyd on a south Minneapolis street, Lewis was asked if he regretted his prior words or wanted to explain them. Lewis’ campaign responded, but did...
    Andrew LiszewskiA minute ago•Filed to:AppleAppleWWDCWWDC 2020macOSSoftwareBig SurSave It’s a very different year for Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, and not only because it’s all taking place online. We’re finally starting to see the company’s mobile operating systems overshadowing its desktop software, and in addition to bringing more mobile apps to its computers, we’re starting to see the aesthetic influences of iOS and iPad reaching macOS with the new 10.16 upgrade: Big Sur. Name changeApple continues to embrace its west coast roots with macOS 10.16 being officially named Big Sur after one of California’s many picturesque destination spots. DesignEvery iteration of macOS includes improvements to the look and feel of the software, but for 10.16 Apple appears to be radically tweaking everything from app icons, to the transparency of windows, menus, and title bars, to even the size of drop down menus to help fit more options on screen at once. The macOS Big Sur dock now looks a lot more like the recently added dock on iOS and iPadOS, and Finder features a facelift that makes it more inline with the...
