    The once secret, illegitimate daughter of former King Albert II of Belgium has drawn comparisons between herself and Princess Diana calling herself a 'Princess of hearts'. She also said of her father and former King 'you can't have a child and just kick it' in an interview with Tatler. Princess Delphine, 53, formerly known as Delphine Boël, was born during an 18-year affair between the former monarch, 86, and Belgian aristocrat Baroness Sybille de Selys Longchamps, 79, that began in the 1960s when he was Crown Prince.  Albert kept in close contact with the baroness and Delphine, who was born in 1968.   But when she turned 16 in 1984, the soon-to-be king - who ascended to the throne in 1993 - distanced himself from the pair to preserve his marriage.  Revealing the rejection still hurts, she said: 'You don't just have a child and kick it.' However, she said that she doesn't blame her father, who she is now reconciled with, saying that royal life is 'isolating' and that he was badly advised.   The illegitimate daughter of King Albert II of...
    For most of the 114 years since the American pitbull terrier was first recognized by the United Kennel Club, the breed was rightly seen as the perfect “nanny dog” for children because of its friendly nature, loyalty and stability. As the ASPCA notes, the pitbulls were “once considered especially non-aggressive to people.” Today, as any owner of a “pitbull-type” dog* can attest, parents often recoil in horror when they spot one of these animals, pulling their children close as if to protect them from a marauding werewolf. Fanciful myths about the breed abound, and some public officials have compared their bites to those of sharks and tigers. Since the 1980s, the media have falsely portrayed the pitbull as a bloodthirsty monster, inherently more dangerous than other strong breeds of dog. There is absolutely no factual basis for that narrative, but it's led to a vicious cycle in which people who want a badass dog to fight, or to guard property, or to intimidate rival gangs tend to choose pitbulls (or Rottweilers, another much-maligned breed). Pitbulls...
    GETTING a tattoo can be a somewhat risky decision - especially if it’s going to be almost constantly visible. TikToker @alienjarz had a rather unfortunate tattoo incident, when she decided to get a ribbon tattooed on her neck. 3The tattoo, which the TikToker says was a disasterCredit: TikTok/@alienjarz [email protected] says she was in tears after she saw her new tattooCredit: TikTok/@alienjarz The tattoo, which references the red satin ribbon urban legend, turned out rather disappointing - with the TikToker saying she spent hours crying afterwards. Posting a number of videos about the situation she says that it wasn’t just that the tattoo looks bad, but that the whole experience was just horrible. “Before they did the tattoo they didn’t clean the skin,” says the TikToker, adding that this was just the first of many signs that perhaps she should have just gotten up and left. “Then when they were doing the tattoo the guy was not using green soap as he went, which I also should have thought was sus, because I have a lot of tattoos, I was the...

    A SOUTH African man almost missed out on a mammoth £4.9 million lottery jackpot after he refused to take a call from an unknown number. The man, whose identity has not been revealed, said he would continue to work in the financial industry, despite becoming a millionaire overnight this week. The Pretoria winner spent R7.42 - the equivalent of £7.42 - on a Powerball lottery ticket online through the First National Bank (FNB) app before manually choosing his numbers. But when the FNB tried to contact him the next morning, he ignored the call, thinking it was a telemarketing company trying to hawk a service or product. He eventually picked up his phone, he realised he had won the lottery, as FNB bank officials checked his bank details while on the phone. “I was excited, extremely happy. I have been playing the lottery games since my university days, so it has been many years, and this is the first time I won any jackpot,” the man said.

    The Covid misinformation banned by social media platforms like Twitter “all turned out to be accurate,” as far as Trace Gallagher is concerned. Gallagher guest-hosted Thursday’s edition of The Story on Fox News, where he spoke with Dave Rubin. Rubin was recently suspended by Twitter after he tweeted a screenshot of a tweet from Jordan Peterson that referred to actor Elliot Page by his former name, Ellen. Rubin was only reinstated after he deleted the tweet. “All I did is call out Twitter for banning Dr. Jordan Peterson, who is I’d say the leading public speaker in the world,” said Rubin. “But you know, if you say anything related to any of this gender insanity that we’re all going through, they can give you the boot. So, I am temporarily back on, but it is by the grace of the Twitter gods, I suppose, that I can waste time on that little device.” Gallagher responded by claiming the suspension was reminiscent of Twitter’s attempts to combat misinformation and disinformation about Covid-19. “Remember when they were banning people for the Covid...

    Widely considered one of the greatest TV series ever, HBO's The Wire is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary this month. Over five seasons, the classic crime drama explored the wide-ranging impact of the war on drugs on the crack-infested streets of Baltimore, Maryland. Written by David Simon, a former police reporter for The Baltimore Sun, the show was praised for its gritty realism and much of it was filmed on location around some of the roughest parts of the city. Though it never won an Emmy, The Wire has been referred to across the critical board as the greatest television series of all time, only recently rivaled by AMC’s Breaking Bad. Each season introduced a different facet of the city of Baltimore. In chronological order they were: the illegal drug trade, the seaport system, the city government and bureaucracy, the school system, and the print news media. It also launched the careers of actors including Idris Elba, Dominic West and Michael K. Williams, who sadly died from an accidental drug overdose in his Brooklyn penthouse on September 6 last year, leaving...

    A 57-year-old woman from Texas was forced to have her little toe amputated after a 'black spot' under her nail turned out to be skin cancer. Yvonne Basil, an executive assistant in Dallas, ignored the mark which was no bigger than a pencil eraser for months believing it was 'a mole'. But after the patch grew and a pedicurist raised concerns, she decided to use some leftover spending money to visit a clinic. Doctors there diagnosed her with advanced acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM) — a rare type of skin cancer — in the pinky toe on her right foot, and recommended it was removed before the cancer spread to other areas where it could prove fatal. Basil said the diagnosis 'totally took me by surprise' because she believed being black meant the 'sun can't harm' her skin. ALM is a rare type of skin cancer, with about 2,000 cases diagnosed in the U.S. annually, but it is more common among people with dark skin. Its cause is still a mystery to doctors — although the cancer differs from other melanomas...

The kayakers sent the skull to local officials, who determined that the bone was human. The fragment was then sent to an FBI forensic anthropologist, who estimated via carbon dating that the skull belonged to a young man who lived between 5,500 and 6,000 BCE. The forensic anthropologist also determined that the man had suffered a grievous head wound as evidenced by a depression in his skull. Additionally, the carbon data showed that the young man either had a diet heavy in fish or ate considerable amounts of maize, pearl millet or sorghum.

    Since the first moon landing in 1969, it’s long been a goal to establish lunar colonies. After all, the moon has water we could use, subterranean caves we could inhabit, and now, it seems, a native way to generate a steady source of usable energy. With the upcoming Artemis project from NASA that aims to bring humans back to the satellite, it’s more important than ever to research and invest in resources for a long-term lunar stay. Luckily, scientists in China might have discovered something that can help. In a new study published Thursday in the journal Joule, the researchers found that chemical compounds in lunar soil are capable of transforming carbon dioxide and water into oxygen and hydrocarbons like methane that can be used as fuel. The team says these chemical compounds can act as catalysts—substances that speed up chemical reactions—to form an extraterrestrial photosynthesis system. This means that lunar soil along with sunlight could be used to support long-term lunar living for colonies. It goes back to one big challenge standing in the way of sustainable living outside...

    NEW YORK (AP) — With Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden, the Brooklyn Nets had expectations of being the last team standing. Instead, they were the first team sent packing. Irving wasn’t around to start the season. Harden was long gone before the end of it. And after their flop culminated in a first-round sweep by the Boston Celtics, the Nets acknowledged that all their distractions off the court kept them from becoming a great team on it. “We had our expectations. Everybody had expectations for us,” Durant said. “A lot of stuff happened throughout the season that derailed us, but I’m proud of how we just kept fighting and kept keeping the faith and every day were trying to work towards something.” The Nets were thrown off course right from the start when Irving refused to get vaccinated against the coronavirus as mandated to play in New York City. The Nets initially kept him away from the team entirely until he could play in all their games, then brought him back in December to play only on the...

Adrian Owens, who used to play for Newcastle Emlyn, first noticed a lump on his right hamstring in December 2020 - but didn't think much of it. 4Former footballer Adrian Owens spent weeks battling a rare cancerCredit: Shan Rees/Media Wales 4He went through an 11-hour operation on the back of his legCredit: Shan Rees/Media Wales "I do a lot of training, but I thought I'd just popped a muscle, or put it down as a cyst," the 36-year-old, from Swansea, told WalesOnline. But the lump grew bigger and Adrian's fiancé, Shan, who is a personal trainer, asked him to see a doctor. He did a biopsy and was told he had sarcoma, a rare kind of cancer that grows in connective tissue. "I didn't know what to think. When we left the surgery I went to the gym on my bike, I went for a run and went for a swim in a local lake. I just didn't...
    A MAN’S stomach pains turned out to be caused by an 80cm headphone wire lodged in his bladder. And the reason it got stuck there in the first place shocked doctors. 2Pelvic X-Ray showing a shadow that turned out to be a wireCredit: Jam Press 2The extracted earphone wire was 80 cm in length and 2-3 mm in diameterCredit: Jam Press The 34-year-old patient, from Indonesia, went to the emergency department saying he had agony when urinating. Doctors were stunned when he revealed he had inserted an earphone wire into his urethra while masturbating. He did this between 3-5 times a week for “sexual pleasure and gratification”. But this time, the bloke could not take the wire out when it became lodged in his bladder, which was “visible and quickly identified” by the team. The wire was coiled and fortunately had not attached to the bladder wall, and extraction was performed using grasping forceps. The earphone wire was...
    New majority Twitter shareholder Elon Musk issued a poll to his millions of followers on the social media platform Saturday, sarcastically asking if he should transform the company's Silicon Valley headquarters into a homeless shelter.  In the post, Musk - who purchased a 9.2 percent stake in the social media giant earlier this week and was subsequently named to the company's board of directors - seemingly took aim at the company's lax remote working policies, saying he came up with the plan 'since no one shows up anyway.' So far, the results of the 24-hour poll, posted at 9:30 PM ET by the billionaire businessman, suggests overwhelming support for the prospective undertaking - with 91.8 percent of more than 523,114 respondents voting in favor of the plan within two hours of its posting.   The post from the outspoken Tesla CEO, known for his social media antics, comes weeks after Twitter brass - who offered staffers the option of working from home 'forever' during the pandemic -  reopened its offices March 15, with remote work remaining an option for staffers. In the post,...
    OAKLAND — An unused parking garage in downtown Oakland that’s been empty for six years could get new life as a site for a 100% affordable housing complex. To make that happen, the City Council would have to declare the city-owned parcel bounded by 14th Street, Clay Street and Oakland City Hall as surplus property, then notify housing developers of its availability. The three-story, 335-space Clay Street Garage hasn’t been used since December 2016, when it was deemed seismically unsafe and closed down. Oakland Vice Mayor Rebecca Kaplan and District 3 Councilmember Carroll Fife have proposed that the site be transformed into a housing complex with all rental units priced below market rate. “It is on public transit, it is near jobs and services, and it could help with our housing crisis,” Kaplan said. Council members Dan Kalb and Loren Taylor joined Kaplan and Fife in a committee meeting earlier this week to support the proposal. In April, the full council is to consider declaring the land available for development. But developing the parcel could be a challenge. A 2015...
    A woman allegedly stalked and harassed David Beckham and targeted his young daughter Harper at school. Sharon Bell, 58, is accused of sending the former Manchester United and England footballer a series of letters as part of repeated attempts to contact him since 2016. She also allegedly attended the school of ten-year-old Harper in an attempt to meet the star's daughter. However, Bell has now been charged with stalking after she allegedly turned up at a home of the Beckham family in west London, The Sun reports. She was prohibited from approaching or messaging David, his popstar wife Victoria, and their children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz or Harper under the terms of an interim stalking order imposed in December last year. Bell is also banned from being within 500m of Beckham’s £6million Cotswolds mansion in Oxfordshire, the celebrity couple’s west London house, and daughter Harper’s school. An interim order was made for five months, and the magistrates will decide at a hearing next week whether a permanent stalking protection order is necessary.  Bell, of Watford, will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on...

    By MARK LONG AP Sports Writer GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida is hiring San Francisco’s Todd Golden as its next men’s basketball coach, bringing in the 36-year-old former Auburn assistant to revitalize a program that had grown stale under Mike White. Golden’s hiring is expected to be finalized later Friday, according to a person familiar with the search. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal was not official. White surprised the Gators by leaving for rival Georgia last weekend. Florida missed the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2017 under White and was mired in mediocrity. Fans had turned on White, to the point where his wife and kids changed seats during one home game earlier this year. White never lived up to ultra-high expectations that came with following Gainesville legend Billy Donovan, who led the Gators to consecutive national titles (2006-07) and four Final Four appearances before bolting for the NBA. White went 142-88 in seven seasons at Florida, including 72-52 in the SEC. His up-and-down offense was the most consistent...
    Espionage, kidnappings and celebrity parties. The life of American model-turned-spy Aline Griffith, Countess of Romanones, already reads like the plot of a Hollywood thriller. Now the late socialite spy, who died in 2017 aged 94, could soon have her remarkable story brought to the big screen.  Speaking to Hola!, author Larry Loftis explained he is in talks with two separate parties about adapting his book, The Princess Spy, although he admits such projects are expensive and difficult to get over the finish line.  Griffith, who was friends with Jackie Kennedy and married to a Spanish Count, was the author of several books full of tales of her escapades. By her own account she tracked down Nazi art, was kidnapped outside a country club and shot a man at point-blank range, although she claimed she never knew if she killed him.  The books were bestsellers and gripped readers and reviewers at the time they were released. But the Countess long faced accusations that her accounts were heavily embellished, if not entirely fabricated.    Society spy: Espionage, kidnappings and celebrity parties. The life of American...

    A UKRAINIAN mum and her daughter travelled over 1,500 miles to escape their war-torn country only to be turned away at the UK border. Alena Semenova, 22, and her mum Tetyana Tsybanyuk, 40, from Kyiv managed to escape the conflict by driving to the ferry port at Calais only to be told they could not make the crossing without a visa. 4Alena and Tetyana have travelled over 1,500 milesCredit: PA 4Alena and Tetyana with Graham and AllaCredit: PA The two women have been offered sanctuary with Alena's godparents Graham and Alla Blackledge, who live in Glasbury-on-Wye, near Brecon.

    The West's effort to curb pro-Russian websites and media outlets in reaction to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is driven by lopsided business interests that could eventually censor conservatives, critics say. Major social media companies, including YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter, have moved to reduce Russian propaganda and disinformation on their platforms by aggressively banning or restricting content from Russian state media outlets such as RT, Sputnik, and others. Conservatives say the social media giants' approach to censoring Russian content is hypocritical and could be aimed at Americans in the near future. “We’re seeing Russia being globally deplatformed across the board, and so it’s impossible not to look at that and think it won’t happen to others in America and elsewhere,” said Dan Gainor, vice president at the Media Research Center, a conservative media watchdog that tracks censorship on Big Tech platforms. “A group of people, the global mob, have decided to target Russia, but they’re fine with genocides in China. How is that acceptable? There are no rules, and the few that exist keep changing,” Gainor said. Gainor added that...

    STUCK in her bed vomiting and struck down with unbearable pain, Nadine Lewis knew something wasn’t right. She was just 14 years old when she started to struggle with her periods, but she had no idea they would plague her for the next 20 years. 2Nadine Lewis was diagnosed with endometriosis after spending years in agonising painCredit: Nadine Lewis The pain gradually got worse over time and Nadine would also go on to suffer hot flushes, fits and nightmares. After seeing her GP, Nadine says she was told it was just period pain. Speaking to The Sun, the 33-year-old, says after 12 years of agony, she finally managed to get answers, when a specialist diagnosed endometriosis. Throughout her battle with the condition, Nadine says that every part of her body has been impacted - with the condition also making it hard for Nadine to start a family of her own. While most people associate endometriosis with painful periods, Nadine said her condition got so bad, that it actually meant it spread to her lungs. Five years after Nadine's initial diagnosis...
    Were she still in a relationship with the sixth in line to the throne, Chelsy Davy's first born would have been celebrated around the world and introduced to the Queen within days. As it was, when Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend gave birth to her baby, Leo, in January, barely anyone was notified at all. Indeed, so under the radar was Chelsy's pregnancy that even the name of her partner, Sam Cutmore-Scott, was little known. Only last Saturday did the Daily Mail break the happy news that Chelsy had become a mother and seemed blissfully settled with Old Etonian Cutmore-Scott, who owns upmarket Norfolk hotel The Harper along with his family. And it speaks volumes that one of the first people baby Leo was introduced to was not royalty but the chair of Chelsy's local Norfolk parish council, who had been called to the Cutmore-Scott's home to address minor complaints about parking issues with Sam and his parents Jo and Mark, the hotel's managing director. 'We as a parish council met with the Cutmore-Scotts, with Jo and Mark and Sam in January,...
