    TODAY (7 July) is World Chocolate Day, meaning you have a whole 24 hours to celebrate this sweet treat. To mark this special occasion, psychologist Darren Stanton has revealed what someone’s preferred chocolate choice says about their character, be it mint, orange or dark. 1What does you favourite chocolate say about you?Credit: Getty Collaborating with UK coffee retailer Coffee Friend, Darren has shared that Milk chocolate lovers are not easily fazed while fans of white chocolate are creative types. He’s also revealed just why it is that so many of us continually crave it and why chocolate can have such a strong psychological hold on us.  Darren says: “We crave chocolate psychologically because chocolate contains certain properties that are known to trigger the release of dopamine - the brain’s naturally occuring feel good factor.” Adding that this is why people can crave chocolate in stressful situations, or when in need of comfort or reassurance.

    Everyone knows I have been the ultimate Real Housewives fan for far too many years. I can quote the one-liners, I have my favorite women that I'm rooting for, and then there are the women that I love to hate-watch. No matter the Housewife, I love it all. Yet the shows recently just weren't doing it for me like they used to. Over the years, women have come and gone from the Housewives as Bravo and Andy Cohen aren't afraid to show a cast member the door regardless of their popularity. The final straw came when Dorinda Medley was put 'on pause' from The Real Housewives of New York City. I attempted to watch the show without her and I quickly realized it just wasn't what it used to be. The fans of the show felt the same way and ratings slipped, as we just couldn't go on without Dorinda. A piece was missing. So, when I saw that my favorite housewife was opening the doors to her beloved home Blue Stone Manor in the Berkshires, Massachusetts to a cohort...

    Blaming Republicans Kerr then lit into Republican U.S. senators without specifically mentioning their political party: "There's 50 senators right now who refuse to vote on H.R. 8, which is a background check rule that the House passed a couple years ago. It's been sitting there for two years. And there's a reason they won't vote on it — to hold on to power." He did name Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Capitol Hill colleagues "who refuse to do anything about the violence and school shootings and supermarket shootings; I ask you, are you going to put your own desire for power ahead of the lives of our children and our elderly and our churchgoers? Because that's what it looks like." Kerr added that he wanted "every person here, every person listening to this to think about your own child or grandchild or mother or father or sister, brother — how would you feel if this happened to you today? We can't get numb to this. We can't sit here and just...
    House Democrats have been here before: debating exactly how to handle an unprecedented congressional proceeding involving the most prominent Republican in the country who, once again, committed unconstitutional and potentially unlawful acts. This time around, the sometimes heated discussions surround preparation for next month’s televised hearings on the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol. During Donald Trump’s first impeachment hearing, Democrats anguished over exactly what angle, tone, and how far to reach, according to what one person involved in those deliberations told The Washington Post. The difference now as the select committee investigating Jan. 6 plots its next phase is that an old-school rock-ribbed Republican, Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, is in the room alongside Democrats, fighting for what she clearly views as an existential battle for her future, her party, and indeed the country. By all accounts, Cheney—who serves as vice chair of the panel—has led the way in adopting an aggressive prosecutorial posture during the Jan. 6 investigation. Her counterparts say she is the most well-versed, well-read, and prepared member of the panel, and she has leaned heavily on her legal training to inform her approach. The Daily Kos...
    BLACKSTONE (CBS) – Blackstone, Massachusetts is considered by some to be the birthplace of American Industrial Revolution. Today, local businesses still line the riverbanks, and inside Crave Mead, Rachel Humphries carries on an ancient tradition. “Mead is fermented honey. It’s very simple and it’s easy to make. You take honey, water, and add yeast. The yeast eats the sugars in the honey and turns it into alcohol,” Humphries explained to WBZ-TV. “It is nothing like a beer, it is nothing like a wine. It is its own entity.” Mead is considered the oldest alcohol in the world. Scholars say it predates both beer and wine by thousands of years. While Humphries says mead is making a comeback in the United States, there’s a reason it hasn’t gone mainstream. “The story that I’ve passed down is thousands of years ago the only way to get honey from a beehive was to submerge the hive in water, kill the bees, and gather the honey. But no one knew that they were creating an issue, so honey became rare and very expensive. It...
    Sixty-five percent of Democrat voters still desire mask mandates for fellow citizens, a Wednesday Politico/Morning Consult revealed. Overall, only 43 percent of voters believe mask mandates should remain in place over those who are unafraid to remove their face coverings. Among independents, 42 percent oppose lifting mask mandates. A large 20 percent of Republicans also opposed lifting mask mandates.

    Amazingly, even while the Biden administration stopped border wall construction at home, Paul said the federal government saw fit to give the Department of Defense $250 million to build border walls in the Middle East and North Africa. The aforementioned pigeon slot machine study reportedly used just over $465,000 in taxpayer dollars that were provided to the Reed College of Portland by the National Institutes of Health. The junk food study was put on by the University at Buffalo. It spent $361,000 awarded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases and confirmed that kids not only crave junk food but are subject to weight gain when continuously exposed to it. Another study funded in part by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) reportedly used approximately $1.3 million over 5 years to study how hearing good or bad news affects happiness. Paul noted, however, that the bulk of the money — over $40 billion — was wasted on COVID-19 relief programs such as “improper CARES Act unemployment insurance payments" and “bad loans out of the Paycheck Protection...
    Stress may make women more likely than men to crave alcohol. While both sexes tend to drink heavily after being put under pressure, a study found one key difference. Although men drank to excess once offered alcohol, women appeared to fancy a stiff drink before having their first sip.  This followed stressful tasks such as public speaking and mental arithmetic. Experts suggest women may face more social pressure over how they appear to others, which could leave them craving a drink. Researchers recruited 105 men and 105 women, setting up a simulated bar in their laboratory. Around half the group were given five minutes to prepare a speech on what they liked and disliked about their own personality, appearance and life, then speak for five minutes. They were told they would be evaluated on psychological factors including how defensively or openly they spoke.

    CINCINNATI (AP) — As much as American soccer players want wins, they crave respect. During a climb from soccer obscurity that began four decades ago, the U.S. has achieved milestone after milestone but carries its poor pedigree like a millstone as it tries to force its way into the world’s elite. Jubilant fans chanted “Dos a Cero!” and American players raised their arms in triumph over and over after Friday night’s 2-0 win over Mexico in a World Cup qualifier. The U.S. beat El Tri three times in a calendar year for the first time since the rivalry began in 1937 and outshot them 18-8. And the Americans did it three days after Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa told the TUDN Network: “Mexico is the mirror in which the United States wants to see itself.” Like on a high school team — much of the U.S. player pool is not far removed from SAT years — the perceived disparagement became a rallying cry. When Christian Pulisic headed in the first goal in the 74th minute, he ran toward the stands, pulled...
    Now that Alex de Cordoba is finally able to get his 6-year-old daughter vaccinated against COVID-19, what are they going to do next? “We’re going to Disneyland,” De Cordoba said. The Laurel Canyon resident jumped at the chance to get the COVID vaccine for his older daughter, one of the tens of millions of children nationwide who became newly eligible for the shots this week, after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended the pediatric vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11. Although COVID-19 hospitalizations have fallen in Los Angeles County from their summer peak, De Cordoba has been regularly reminded that the pandemic is not yet over, most recently when the elementary school informed him that his daughter would have to quarantine after a COVID case there, forcing them to postpone her birthday party. He has remained cautious about travel and other potentially risky activities with his kids as they await their chance to get vaccinated. “As a parent, the saddest thing for me is realizing that this pandemic could have been curtailed so much more when...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Whether it’s door-to-door trick-or-treating for the kids or heading to a local haunted house followed by a party, there’s no denying that Angelenos of all ages are also looking forward to the sweet, sweet candy that comes with Halloween. It may come as no surprise, too, that people nationwide are shelling out more cash for candy this year than compared to 2020.

    Throughout her career as a cookbook author, Olia Hercules has taken deep dives into regional cuisines spanning Eastern Europe, including Georgia, Azerbaijan, Russia and beyond. Each of her three cookbooks, the latest of which is Summer Kitchens, is chock full of recipes for breads, stews and other dishes unique to each area. But there’s one dish many of these regional cuisines have in common: dumplings. From manti in Turky to khinkali beloved across the Caucasus, these dumplings take many ornate forms, some rolled into perfect roses and others folded into something resembling a deliciously plump scarab beetle—and all are an economical way to use up leftovers or stretch simple ingredients into a filling meal. However, there’s only one dumpling that Hercules refers to as her “death row wish,” and that’s the simple, moon-shaped varenyky she grew up eating in Kakhovka, Ukraine, and which is featured in her first book, Mamushka. “Everybody in the Ukraine would make it—it’s definitely one of those national dishes that’s quite stereotypical in a way,” says Hercules, whose mother first taught her how to make...
    Listening to Bach or Beethoven could leave you reaching for the biscuit tin – but turning down the burgers, a study suggests. Nearly 800 participants listened to 20 tracks from four genres of music – classical, jazz, hip-hop and rock/metal. After hearing each song, they were asked to rate on a scale their intention to eat 16 food items and their emotional state during the track. They felt calmer when listening to classical music and preferred sweet foods, researchers led by Miyagi University in Japan found.  The likes of Elgar also appeared to turn people off savoury junk food such as burgers and chips. Listening to Bach or Beethoven could leave you reaching for the biscuit tin – but turning down the burgers, a study suggests (stock image) Researcher Charles Spence, of Oxford University, told journal Food Quality and Preference that the link between eating types of foods and music could be explained by our emotional state because previous studies have also found that people rate sweet foods as more calming. ‘People’s buying/eating intention might be increased in the...
    WHILE it’s fairly common for pregnant women to crave odd combinations of their favourite foods, have you ever had the urge to drink detergent or chew chalk? A pregnant mum recently took to Facebook to say she’s going through a bottle of Dettol every day due to a bizarre craving – and she’s not the only one. Nazma Iqbal would sneak off to scoff paper towels while she was pregnant According to The Daily Mail, the mum asked where she could get the cleaning product in bigger quantities as she’d become so obsessed with the smell while expecting. “I no kidding get urges to drink it,” she added.

    At Soby’s New South Cuisine in Greenville, South Carolina, executive chef Shaun Garcia is putting a spin on deviled eggs. "Deviled eggs are a Southern icon. They are easy to make and easy to share. Down South you will never go to a gathering or picnic without deviled eggs. We like to put a modern spin on the classic with a surprise element by adding a fried oyster, smoked salmon or crispy bacon on top," Garcia, a Spartanburg County, South Carolina, native, told FOX News. "Consider this recipe your canvas, and add that element of surprise for a real wow factor," she said.

    POTTSTOWN, Pa. (CBS) — Thursday marks the start of Crave Montco Month. It’s 31 days of deals and promotions to help get customers back to local restaurants and breweries still very much working to rebound after COVID closures. One husband and wife team is beating the odds. Inside Pottstown’s Welcome to the Avenue Jamaican restaurant along High Street, chef Kwane Haywood is cooking up American favorites infused with the vibrant flavors of the Caribbean, like the sweet and tangy tamarind glazed wings, an homage to his home on the island of St. Vincent.

    If a sandwich shop has been around for more than 30 years and still has a line out the door every day, then they must be doing something right.

    In this article BURL ROST TJX The reflection of shoppers are seen in a window at a TJ Maxx store in Peoria, Illinois.Daniel Acker | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesAny doubts about whether shoppers would return to discount retail stores to rummage through racks in the hunt for bargains were crushed this week when TJX Companies and Ross Stores reported their first quarter earnings. Both companies sales' surged past analyst estimates, as consumers started packing back into their stores to look for new outfits, shoes, luggage and home goods as pandemic induced lockdowns eased. TJX and Ross cited a pent-up demand from shoppers, many of which have been armed with extra stimulus dollars in recent months, but also a desire among many people to still look for good deals. The appeal for so-called treasure hunting in stores could be something that many consumers end up craving more than they did before the Covid health crisis. "We believe the appeal of our entertaining, treasure-hunt shopping experience gives consumers a compelling reason to shop us," TJX CEO Ernie Herrman said in...
    Ellen DeGeneres announced on Wednesday she's ending her long-running namesake daytime talk show.  "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" will conclude with its upcoming 19th season in 2022. "When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore," DeGeneres told The Hollywood Reporter. The decision comes after the talk show's ratings have dropped dramatically in viewership following the star's toxic workplace scandal that dominated headlines last year.  Per Nielsen's ratings in March, "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" lost over 1 million viewers over the course of the show’s current 18th season. ELLEN DEGENERES ENDING TALK SHOW IN 2022 AFTER YEAR OF BRUTAL HEADLINES Meanwhile, DeGeneres, 63, told THR that the decision to end the show didn't stem from the internal investigation that took place. "It’s not why I’m stopping," she said. "It almost impacted the show. It was very hurtful to me. I mean, very. But if I was quitting the show because of that, I wouldn’t have come back this season."...
    THIS sexpert says women "crave sexual variety" more than men - and monogamy turns us off. Society teaches us women desire monogamy whereas men want to play the field, but Nadia Bokody insists this "couldn't be more wrong" and says the common myth is causing "sex-starved relationships". 2Nadia Bokody insists women crave sexual variety MORE than men and says monogamy turns us offCredit: Instagram In an article for news.com.au, the Sydney-based writer says scores of studies support this. One such paper, published in the British Medical Journal, found women are more than twice as likely as men to lose interest in sex after cohabiting with their partner for a year or longer. More research, from 2012, found women’s sexual desire – not men’s – “was significantly and negatively predicted by relationship duration”. And a seven-year longitudinal study of over 2,100 Finnish women also found those in long-term, live-in relationships reported the least interest in sex. 2Nadia says society's inability to accept this 'biological fact' is creating 'sex-starved relationships'Credit: Instagram Nadia says: "Bizarrely, instead of recognising this biological fact, we’ve continued to push the narrative...
    We are reminded, again, how malleable spring training is. Pete Alonso hit another home run Tuesday afternoon in Port St. Lucie, Fla., his third of the exhibition season. His OPS is 1.492. If you’d like to look it up, you’ll note the all-time single-season leader in that category was Barry Bonds at the peak of his “powers,” 2004. His OPS was 1.422. Alonso probably won’t keep that up. Jeff McNeil had a hit Tuesday afternoon, which is a good thing, because despite the care-free, surfer-dude look he’s been favoring all spring, he had lately started to look like a man in need of a king-sized dose of Maalox, 1-for-his-first-21. He’s now 2-for-22. He’s hitting .091. McNeil probably won’t stay that low. Jacob deGrom … well, we are running out of adjectives. His 13-pitch first inning against the Astros on Tuesday consisted of 11 fastballs, all of which hit 99, 100 or 101 mph, and two strike-three sliders, both 94, that nearly sent a pair of hitters into traction.

    Arianny Celeste treated her 3.2 million Instagram followers to two sexy shots of herself outdoors on Monday. In both images, Arianny posed outside with a blue sky and white wispy clouds behind her. A house, greenery, and hills were also visible in the background. She wore a black, high-cut bodysuit with spaghetti straps for both pictures. The outfit had a matching belt with a gold clasp that showcased her nipped-in waist. The UFC octagon girl wore her long highlighted brunette hair in loose curls that tumbled over one shoulder and down her back. Arianny wore brown over-the-knee boots that left her curvy thighs bare. The mother of one accessorized with a large gold chain that featured a heart pendant that rested just below her neck. She also had on a gold bracelet and rings. Arianny held a straw cowboy hat with a dark band in front of her body to protect her modesty because she posed atop a rock with her legs open in both photos. She tugged the top down in the first photo, revealing a generous portion of...
    Abby Dowse loves spending time in the sun, and can often be seen working on her tan at the beach or at the pool. As fans who regularly follow the model on Instagram know all too well, the star’s feed is brimming with sizzling bikini posts wherein she flaunts her perky assets in scanty swimwear. Her latest upload followed largely in the same vein, and saw the bombshell basking in the sunshine while wearing next-to-nothing. She traded in her tiny bathing suits for sexy lingerie and swapped the sandy shore for her bedroom window. The social media maven struck a seductive pose while sitting on the edge of the bed with her knees wide open. She arched her back and nonchalantly threw her hands up in the air, all the while looking out the window with a longing stare. The room was flooded with plenty of sunlight, which illuminated her toned body and beautiful face. Only her legs were engulfed in shade, as the light grazed just above the mid-thigh shining a natural spotlight on all of her curves. The...
    People really do crave snacks and junk food to eat when they are stressed out by events in their lives, a study has confirmed. Researchers from Australia and New Zealand surveyed 137 adults about their eating habits, feelings of tension and food cravings over the course of one week. The subjects reported craving more food — and eating both more junk food but also more overall — the more tension they were experiencing on a given day.

'Feelings of tension, anxiety, and stress may alter dietary behaviour,' the team wrote.

Emotional eaters, they explained, are those who...
    Photo via Jacks London Grill/FacebookBritish food often gets a bad rap. Traditional dishes don’t have the finesse that makes French technique a touchstone, nor the bounty of garden fresh ingredients that elevate Italian cuisine as the favorite of western palates. But my father’s family was from northern England, so our Christmas tradition was always standing beef rib roast and Yorkshire pudding, which is a popover variation for the uninitiated. But across the U.K., you’ll find gastropubs offering the lure of tasty morsels to accompany pints of ale. Beer usually demands hearty dishes like bangers and mash or steak and ale pie. I must add, though, that I’ve often been disappointed. My companion of the past decade is a Brit expat, so I’ve been across the pond to London and Shakespeare country in the midlands of Warwickshire on numerous occasions (before COVID-19). Pubs are everywhere, but even in Covent Garden, in a half-timbered Tudor building that spawned Disney dreams, the meals have too often been underwhelming.

    Vivian Howard is fascinated by meatloaf. The first time the North Carolina native, restaurateur and host of PBS shows A Chef’s Life and Somewhere South ever tried the dish was at K&W Cafeterias, a family-style restaurant chain with locations across the Southeast. “I didn’t grow up eating meatloaf,” admits Howard. But after her first taste, she was hooked. Part of her fascination stems from the dish’s rudimentary makeup: ground meat bound together with a starch and often garnished with a layer of America’s ubiquitous condiment, ketchup. As she writes in her new cookbook, This Will Make It Taste Good: A New Path to Simple Cooking, she was also intrigued by its status as an American classic that, while long-beloved by some for its fortifying simplicity, is also terribly misunderstood by others. Though she’s a fan, Howard gets both sides of the argument. “My problem with traditional meatloaf is that I feel like it’s kind of like sausage,” says Howard. “There’s so many ways to make it interesting, but we only kind of do it one way.” With that in...

"People are exploring," said Krishnakumar Davey, president of strategic analytics at IRI. "There is palate exploration, recipe exploration going on. We have documented all kinds of spicy sauces that have grown substantially — we're talking about hundreds of percent points in smaller growth categories. That is happening and a lot of Gen X and millennials have taken to cooking at home for the first time. So some of those habits will stick." Cooking and eating will likely look similar in the first half of 2021 in the U.S., as the Covid-19 vaccine rolls out, the spread slows and restrictions gradually lift, according to...

    People crave company when socially isolated — such as amid lockdown — in almost exactly the same way that a hungry individual longs for food, a study has concluded. US experts found that after ten hours of seclusion, people not only want company but also exhibit increased brain responses to pictures of social interactions. Social interactions are rewarding, the team said — and related images (like smiling faces or people chatting ) also engages the brain's dopamine-based reward system. The findings build on past work that found mice exhibited increased responses in the midbrain dopamine system when being social after a period of isolation. While this had suggested that the midbrain may play a role in feelings of social isolation, it had been unclear exactly whether the same would apply in humans.  People crave company when socially isolated in almost exactly the same way that a hungry individual longs for food, a study has concluded (stock image) In their study, neuroscientist Livia Tomova of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and colleagues monitored 40 participants who underwent first ten hours of...
    Pop Crave's logo. Pop Crave Will Cosme started Pop Crave in 2015, which became one of the most popular independent music and entertainment news accounts on Twitter. In its five years of existence, Pop Crave has regularly outpaced legacy publications like Rolling Stone in being the first to publish music and entertainment news.  As a largely anonymous organization, with unpaid staff and a history of mysterious sourcing, music journalists argue that Pop Crave is a step behind when it comes to editorial standards. The company vehemently disagrees. Pop Crave recently gained attention for being one of the first news sources (along with Insider) to call the 2020 US presidential election.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. In summer 2015, Will Cosme, a journalism school drop-out, spent his lunch breaks at Home Depot in Miami the way he spent nearly every moment of spare time since working there — brainstorming business plans. A pop culture obsessed digital native, Cosme, then 22, had been engaged in digital fandom for the better half of his young life. As an intensely...
    On Friday morning, after a seemingly endless ballot count, an anxious nation got the news it had long-awaited and many desperately hope is true: Joe Biden is the President-elect of the United States. (The race has not officially been called as of this writing.) Hide For many on Twitter, the timeline delivered them this potentially historic news courtesy of … Pop Crave? Hide Yes, indeed, the outlet whose current lead story about Lana Del Rey includes inspired lines about “a glorious, emasculating hook” and “feeling misunderstood in the commercial world of feminism” was the first news outlet to tell thousands of Twitter users that Biden is the projected victor in the presidential election, as per Decision Desk HQ (whom Pop Crave cited in its tweet).

    Republicans don't like change. They might get it next month, anyway. Fewer than half of Republicans – 46% – think American culture and the nation's way of life have changed for the better since the 1950s, compared to 62% of Democrats who feel that way, according to a sweeping report about American values and opinion by the nonpartisan group PRRI. [MORE: Compare candidates and issues in the 2020 Voter Center] A deeper dive into views toward changes in American demographics shows why: 13% of Republicans, for example, say they prefer that America be made up of people from a wide variety of religions (53% of Democrats feel that way). One in four Republicans "mostly agree" with the statement that America should be made up of people from all over the world (63% of Democrats think so). Six out of ten Republicans believe that men are punished just for being men, compared to a fourth of Democrats who believe that. Republicans also show less support for the Black Lives Matter movement, with 79% saying police killings of Blacks that have...
    Tyler Stanfield wrote his latest single, “Whiskey Heart,” when he was living in Austin, Texas, a few years ago. He says people who aren’t paying attention think it’s a song about drinking. “It’s not,” Stanfield says. “Whiskey is a metaphor. That’s kind of one of the fun things about it is I like to see if people go deeper than just thinking that it’s about getting drunk and doing that kind of thing.” The song is part of an as-yet-unreleased three-track EP and is actually about love, and the overwhelming need for it.

    The Budlong Hot Chicken first surfaced in Denver in 2018 as a food truck from Chicago restaurateur Jared Leonard, who launched the brand there 2016. After about a year at Zeppelin Station beginning in early 2019, the Budlong flew the coop — only to land at 81 South Pennsylvania street this week. Leonard's Nashville-style hot chicken eatery takes over the space previously occupied by American Grind, serving sandwiches in several heat levels along with fries, biscuits, collard greens and other sides from 11 a.m to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Leonard and his wife, Amanda, are also working on opening Campfire, a wood-fired restaurant in Evergreen. Two coffee shops have reopened after recent time off. Mint & Serif closed in July 2019 at its original location at 11500 West Colfax Avenue to expand into a larger space three miles east. The move took longer than anticipated because of the pandemic, but the cafe is back open with beer, wine and coffee drinks, along with a menu of breakfast burritos and sandwiches, pastries and other coffeehouse fare. And in the...
    Cake Girl/FacebookOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and local bakery The Cake Girl wants to help in a super sweet way. Throughout the month of October, The Cake Girl will donate $1 from every sale of the bakery’s limited edition Crave’n Cups to The American Cancer Society.  The cups are loaded with pink vanilla cake, vanilla buttercream, pink sprinkles and a special pink buttercream ribbon on top.  "We wanted to give back and help bring awareness during the whole month of October, and these cute pink Crave'n Cups help us accomplish that mission," explained The Cake Girl founder, Kristina Lavallee, in a release. The bakery hopes to present The American Cancer Center with a check of at least a grand by the end of the month. Doing a little quick and simple math, that means at least 1,000 Crave’n Cups need to be devoured by those who harness both a sweet tooth and a big heart. Probably won’t take much convincing.  "Awareness, Support and Community Involvement is what this is all about," said Kirby Lavallee, the bakery’s Chief...

    Coronavirus pandemic creates Americas first female recession amid child care, unemployment woes The CDC Reports a Major Illness Outbreak in 34 States Tied to This Food Good, bad, worse: Joe George gave fans what they crave GOOD © File photo George admires his work. Joe George looked so-so at best for eight-plus rounds in his rematch with Marcos Escudero on the Angelo Leo-Tramaine Williams card Saturday. The light heavyweight from Houston spent far too much time with his back against the ropes, where Escudero teed off. He generally threw punches one at a time, not in combination. And he was generally outworked by his Argentine rival, who led on two cards after eight rounds. Indeed, things looked bleak for George as the bell rang to start Round 9. Then, in one of those eye-popping moments unusual to combat sports, Escudero ducked under a right hand from George and was nailed by a perfect left uppercut that put him on his back and rendered him semiconscious. Fight over. Viral video born. The knockout is one of the most brutal elements...
    You don’t know what you got till it’s gone. Those who call themselves “huggers” have potentially been without for months now — and there’s good reason why that might be impacting their mental health during coronavirus lockdown, according to a new study. Social scientists have discovered that, for some, the craving for human touch is influenced by a variety of factors, including our genes. University of Arizona professor Kory Floyd, whose research was published this week in Communication Monographs, discussed the inherited interplay between skin-on-skin touch and the psyche. “There’s something special about touch that I think relates back to the fact that we, as human beings, are born in such a state of immaturity that we have no ability to take care of our own needs,” said Floyd in an article on the university’s website. “Touch equals survival as infants. If we don’t have someone touching us and helping to meet our needs, then we don’t survive.” For those who live alone or limiting their in-person interactions during the pandemic might be suffering from hereditary “skin hunger,” he explained. “Just...
    THEY may have stepped down as senior royals earlier this year - but according to a security expert, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry never be able to fully escape the limelight. Appearing on Us Weekly's Royally Us podcast, former royal protection officer Simon Morgan said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could struggle to stay under the radar now they're living in LA. 2Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been living in LA since MarchCredit: PA:Press Association The expert argued that the couple - who are reportedly in lockdown at Tyler Perry's £14.5m mansion - will "never get the privacy they crave". He said: "There will always be an interest in the Sussexes and that interest may peak and trough as time goes on. "But I think the more that they are not in the public eye, the more that they will want to know what they are up to and that creates its own monster within itself." Although Simon acknowledged how easy it is to say the couple could escape the limelight by "not going out or speaking to...
