    An Egyptian man on trial for the murders of his daughters in what prosecutors call an 'honor killing' took the stand in his own defense Monday and claimed that he left the girls alive in his taxi and fled because he thought he was being followed and 'felt his life was in danger.' Yaser Said, 64, a taxi cab driver in Texas, is accused of fatally shooting 17-year-old Sarah and 18-year-old Amina on New Years Day in 2008. Their bodies were found in the back of his taxi outside a Dallas-area hotel.  Said denies that he killed his daughters and told the court on Monday that the girls were 'certainly' alive when he left them in the taxi that evening and fled after he apparently became fearful that he was being followed. The cab driver explained that he and his daughters were on their way to dinner when he attempted to escape whoever he believed was following them by leaving the girls in his taxi and taking the bus in a different direction.  Yaser Said, 64, took the stand in...
    TikTok is being slammed over a 'fatphobic' filter which puffed up people's faces and added wrinkles to them, so that users could see what they'd looked like if they were 'ugly.'  The effect, which has since been removed by the video streaming platform, became popular in early June and allowed users to make their faces large and rugged looking.  Many people began posting videos of themselves with and without the filter, as the song 1, 2, 3 by Sofia Reyes played in the background. TikTok user @eunicetjoaa was one of the first to participate in the trend, and her video gained more than 30 million views and inspired others to try it too.  TikTok is being slammed over a 'fatphobic' filter which puffed up people's faces and added wrinkles to them, so that users could see what they'd looked like if they were 'ugly' The effect, which has since been removed by the video streaming platform, became popular in early June and allowed users to make their faces large and rugged looking Many people began posting videos of themselves with and...
    GOOD Morning America fans have gone wild over host Robin Roberts and weather anchor Sam Champion’s latest NSFW chat on live TV. Viewers are shocked by the the pair’s turn in conversation and have blasted that there are some visuals that can’t be “unseen.” 4Credit: ABC 4Credit: ABC During Wednesday’s broadcast, Sam reported from Miami for the show’s latest stop on the show’s burger-eating tour. Before joining guests Gloria Estefan, chef Lorena Garcia, and basketball star Udonis Haslem in chairs on the perimeter of the pool, the meteorologist took a bit of time to report while standing in the water. As fans could only see the shirt-clad TV personality from the waist up, they, as well as Robin and her co-hosts back on set, couldn’t yet see what sort of swimwear he was wearing. After he came out of the pool and toward his guests for the burger competition, everyone was relieved to see he had on a pair of long swim trunks.

    Scientology is seeking help from the Supreme Court to stop 'That '70s Show' star Danny Masterson's rape accusers from suing the church.  Masterson's accusers allege that since the group made formal complaints to the LAPD, the church has 'killed (and attempted to kill their pets), 'set the outside of their home on fire' and 'posted fake ads purporting to be from them soliciting anal sex.' The church is countering that by saying that because the accusers are former members of Scientology, their issues should be settled in house.   In January, a court of appeal in California ruled that Scientology's confidentiality agreement with its members did not apply in the harassment lawsuit filed in 2019 by Chrissie Carnell Bixler, her husband Cedrick Bixler-Zavala, Marie Bobette Riales and two other anonymous victims, known as Jane Doe #1 and Jane Doe #2. Masterson was arrested in June 2020 and is accused of three rapes that occurred between 2001 and 2003 at his home in the Hollywood Hills. He had pleaded not guilty to the charges. If convicted on the charges, Masterson could face up to...
    Florida residents donated 167 assault rifles and handguns to Miami police as part of a buyback initiative that sends firearms to Ukrainian soldiers fighting Russia. The Guns 4 Ukraine program allowed residents to off-load their weapons to police on Saturday with 'no questions asked.' Officials gave residents $50 for handguns, $100 for shotguns and $150 for assault-style rifles such as AK-47s or AR-15s. City Commissioner Ken Russell said the initiative was an 'unprecedented effort' to help Ukrainians 'in their time of need,' as well as get weapons off the Miami streets. However, critics allege the weapons are too primitive to help Ukraine resist Vladimir Putin's assault on their nation and that getting the guns overseas is a really complex process. The city has not yet signed an agreement with a licensed weapons exporter, but officials are hoping to send the guns to Ukraine within the next few weeks.

    This is an adaptation of Matt Walsh's book, 'What Is a Woman?: One Man's Journey to Answer the Question of a Generation,' which is being released June 14 from Daily Wire Books  As I sat across from Scott Newgent in a beautiful room in New York with the warm sun showering in, I thought she looked almost like a middle-aged man: stubbled cheeks, thinning hair, a portly body shape.  I started off with the basics. 'What led up to your decision to transition?' I asked. She began with a sigh. 'Well, it's a question I get a lot.' She told me about how she is a lesbian and was deeply in love with a conservative Catholic girl. The girl knew she wasn't a lesbian and told Newgent she acted like a man in a woman's body. 'So I thought about it for a long time,' Newgent said. 'And it came to me that if I replaced my life, if I replaced my chromosomes from female to male, my life would have been completely different. I would have been the ultimate...
    My husband and I were just two people out of scores of Americans, who rushed to the movie theatres this past Memorial Day weekend to see 'Top Gun: Maverick.' The sequel to the epic 1986 original, starring Tom Cruise and much of the initial cast, shattered box office records, making an estimated $156 million domestically over its four-day opening weekend. It was also Cruise's first $100-million-plus opening over the course of his entire career. Ben and I got a babysitter, pre-paid tickets, and bought the collectible metal popcorn bucket. It was the first time since before Covid hit that I was looking forward to going out to see a movie– and I'm sure that thousands of other Americans felt the same way. The question is: why? Why did so many people go out to see this film and not any other Hollywood offering? The first part of the answer is obvious – 'Top Gun: Maverick' is the sequel to a universally beloved film that garnered incredible reviews and is considered by many to be as good, if not better, than...

    Ezra Miller admonished a police officer for calling them 'sir' and explained they identified as 'transgender non-binary' during their arrest in Hawaii back in March. In newly-released body cam footage from the arrest obtained by TMZ, Miller warned the officer that failing to refer to them by their proper pronouns again would be an 'intentional act of bigotry' and a technical 'hate crime.'  Miller, 29, who uses they/them pronouns and came out as queer in 2012, and said in a 2018 interview with The Hollywood Reporter: 'Queer just means no, I don't do that. I don't identify as a man. I don't identify as a woman. I barely identify as a human.'

    The saturation of the ranks of our police forces with far-right extremists is one of the harsh realities of American life that bubbled up during the police brutality protests of 2020 and was laid bare by the Jan. 6 insurrection. The presence of these extremists not only is a serious security and enforcement threat—particularly when it comes to dealing with far-right violence—but has created a toxic breach between our communities and the people they hire to protect and serve them. Too often, as in Portland, the resulting police culture has bred a hostility to their communities that expresses itself in biased enforcement and a stubborn unaccountability. Much of this originates in police training, which are the foundations of cop culture. And a recent Reuters investigative report has found that police training in America is riddled with extremists: Their survey of police training firms—35 in all—that provide training to American police authorities found five of them employ (and in some cases, are operated by) men whose politics are unmistakably of the far-right extremist variety. And these five people alone are responsible...

    Russian warships skulk on the horizon, slipping in and out of view, torturing beautiful Odessa, the jewel of the Black Sea. Will they launch a missile strike soon? Will there be an amphibious assault? Will paratroopers drop from the skies? And what of Vladimir Putin’s advancing army, held for now at Mykolaiv, 75 miles along the coast? No wonder this seaport’s nerves are frayed. More than 60 per cent of Odessa’s population have already left, many to the relative safety of western Ukraine or beyond its borders. Those who remain are a singularly resolute bunch, brave and bold, even by Ukrainian standards. Some of them hope the Russians will hurry up and attack if they dare.  Russian warships skulk on the horizon, slipping in and out of view, torturing beautiful Odessa, the jewel of the Black Sea ‘Let them come, we are ready to make them pay for what they’ve done to Ukraine,’ says merchant seaman Oleksii Voloshyn, 25, his beckoning hand outstretched towards the sea, defiant as a mafioso.

    Dogs are capable of finding the most unexpected items while playing fetch - and sometimes their finds can leave their owners cringing. People from around the world have been sharing hilarious photos of their dogs presenting them with a sex toy after curiosity led them to make discoveries during their daily walk. Rebecca Scott, who lives in Norwich, shared a photo of her dog with a dildo in its mouth on Twitter, last week, which saw hundreds of users reply with similar snaps. 'My dog Nelly has a best dog friend called Larry. Larry has an owner called Tom who is my friend. The young dogs swim together in an idyllic spot of the river Wensum every morning. They bring back sticks to us in exchange for treats. It was all very idyllic until this happened,' she wrote. Rebecca's post racked up more than 15,000 retweets as pet owners admitted they were able to relate, having had their own dogs find sex toys in parks, beaches and even left by previous owner of their house.

    Each year Britons spend around £442 million on vitamin and mineral supplements, with nearly half of the population buying them regularly. While the consensus is that a healthy balanced diet should provide all your nutrient needs, the fact is many people regard supplements as a dietary safety net. Yet did you know that how and when you take them can undo their potential benefits?  For example, there is little point in taking vitamin D on an empty stomach because it needs fat in the gut in order for it to be properly absorbed. And taking too much of one B vitamin can leave you low in another. While the consensus is that a healthy balanced diet should provide all your nutrient needs, the fact is many people regard supplements as a dietary safety net ‘The vitamins and minerals we need to stay healthy work together in a complex and delicate balance,’ says Lindsy Kass, a sports and nutrition scientist at the University of Hertfordshire.  ‘While some need each other to perform best, others can compete in the body for absorption.’...
    GRADUATES face paying back their student loans until they are in their SIXTIES under new Government plans. University leavers — who are usually saddled with £45,000 of debt — will reportedly have to start paying it back once they start earning £25,000 a year. 1Graduates face paying back their student loans until they are in their sixties under new Government plansCredit: Alamy And they will have to wait 40 years until the debt is written off, not 30, sources told The Times. The current threshold is £27,295 - over £2,000 more than the proposed figure - meaning many students will have to start paying off their debts sooner. But ministers will sweeten the pill by tying student loan interest to inflation. Education minister Michelle Donelan insisted the changes are “absolutely not” about deterring people doing degrees. But the Education Policy Institute warned the move will hit the disadvantaged. The plans are said to feature as part of the Government’s response to the first major review into higher education ordered by the government since 1963. Most read in UK NewsMUM...

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer says fellow Democrats are telling Sen. Joe Manchin their own seats and party majority are at risk if the Senate doesn't change its filibuster rules to counter state voting restrictions.  Schumer revealed the appeals to party and self interest Wednesday hours after a group of nine senators met with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) in an effort to get her behind changes to the filibuster. Both have been holding out and standing by their opposition to ending it.   'This is too important to just concede,' Schumer told MSNBC's 'Morning Joe.' 'We are working there are constant meetings and not just among the few senators, but just about every senator – every single one of the 50 [other than Manchin and Sinema] is talking individually to Joe Manchin to Kyrsten Sinema – and they're saying things like: "I'll lose my election if the legislature is allowed to do this in my state.''

    YouTube's popular ACE Family claims they were scammed by a shady contractor who took millions of dollars from them, abandoned their unfinished home, and left them unable to get a certificate of occupancy. The family vloggers, who boast 18.9 million followers on the platform, made headlines in October when it was reported that their $10 million Los Angeles mansion - which features heavily on their channel - was in foreclosure.  Mom Catherine McBroom now tells DailyMail.com that she and her husband Austin were the victims of a dishonest contractor who used a fake license, took their money, and ran off before he finished building their house. 'I transferred the funds to finish the house and they dissolved the company within weeks. They took the money and ran, and they never came back,' she said. For more than two years, the McBrooms were paying a $70,000-per-month mortgage for an unfinished home that didn't even have gas - meaning no heat or hot water.  'When you don't have gas, you don’t have heat. The winters are getting colder now due to global warming, and I have...

    Conservative historian Victor Davis Hanson said Democrats see the that “COVID threat” and “racial tensions” favor them politically and “they won’t change” despite recent election losses. During the Sirius XM “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast Thursday, Kelly asked her guest Hanson what the odds are by the “mid-terms” Democrats will be like “oh my goodness, we are going to have to relax these crazy policies, because we’re going to pay for it if we don’t” over all the firing of cops and healthcare workers over COVID vaccine, mask mandates for kids and the like.

    A personal trainer who was one of four Britons caught breaching police checkpoints to take selfies near the erupting volcano on La Palma has revealed they were trying to save stranded dogs. Seb Jones, 33, told MailOnline he and his muscled friends Andy Flavell, Tom Whaite and Zack Hurley, responded to social media campaigns to rescue the animals trapped near the flowing lava and rushed to save them.

    A Brazilian couple say they regret paying $18,000 to a human smuggler to help them and their two children illegally cross the US-Mexico border because they were briefly arrested and are now required to wear ankle monitors that track their every move.   Marcos Gomes de Lima and Alciene Nicole were both unemployed when they decided to abandon their home in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais before crossing into the US illegally.  The couple and their children are now living in Connecticut with a friend while they wait for an immigration hearing where they will learn whether they will be allowed to stay in the US.   'We gave a 30,000 (Brazilian reals) down payment and $1,000 a month,' Gomes de Lina told Brazilian outlet G1.

    A US Marine has shared his dismay at being forced to remove obscene messages insulting the Taliban and ISIS that they daubed on the walls of Kabul Airport.  Three examples of the insults were shared to social media - with one showing a serviceman in front of a tiled wall at Hamid Karzai Airport sprayed with the phrase 'F*** ISIS + Taliban' in black paint, as well as an image of a penis and testicles sprayed in purple. Another photo showed 12 troops with guns in front of an outdoor concrete barrier which had been sprayed with 'F*** ISIS, AFG 2021'. And a third showed three troops stood outside toting a cardboard sign saying 'F**k the Taliban.'  But an unnamed Marine stationed at Hamid Karzai said the graffiti painted on walls was removed at the orders of bosses, saying: 'My boys had to go … pick up every last piece of … trash for who? The Taliban?' a Marine told the Washington Post. 'It was a slap in the face to us.' That order was part of an edict which...
    "I'm a human being first," Irving said. "Obviously living in this public sphere, it's just a lot of questions about what's going on in the world of Kyrie and I think I just would love to just keep that private and handle it the right way, with my team and go forward together with the plan." Abdul-Jabbar refused to "accept" Irving's position and accused him of "hiding behind procedure." "Either you understand what's going on and you're going to do the right thing, or you don't understand what's going on and you're going to continue to create all this confusion with your stance," he told Lemon. The NBA says it cannot mandate vaccines for players without approval from the players' union. Irving is the union's vice president. According to a report, about 90% of NBA players are currently vaccinated against COVID-19. "A vaccine mandate for NBA players would need an agreement with the Players Association. The NBA has made these proposals but the players' union has rejected any vaccination requirement," an NBA spokesman told CBS News Tuesday....
    WINNING the Champions League is one thing, but Chelsea learnt the hard way that defending it is going to be another thing entirely even with a stronger squad.

Instead they are right up there with a massive target on their back, one of the big guns who opposition managers fear the most. In simple playing terms, that means sides like Zenit packing out the defence and midfield and challenging the Blues to break them down. Every time Chelsea got possession the white shirts formed narrow, rigid lines and made it so difficult to play through them. What that...
    Drew Angerer/Getty Images President Joe Biden appeared to confuse derechos with tornadoes during a Tuesday visit to the storm-damaged Northeast. “You know, it looks like a tornado — they don’t call them that anymore — that hit the crops and wetlands in the middle of the country in Iowa and Nevada — I mean, it’s just across the board,” Biden said during a stop in Manville, New Jersey. A derecho, which is defined as a long-lived storm in which damage exceeds 240 miles, caused an estimated $11 billion in damage to crops in Iowa last year. It was not immediately clear what event Biden was referring to in Nevada.

    President Joe Biden struggled Tuesday during a discussion on extreme weather threatening the country, inexplicably declaring that tornadoes were no longer referred to as tornadoes. “Looks like a tornado — they don’t call them that anymore — that hit the crops and wetlands in the middle of the country,” Biden said. “In Iowa, in Nevada, in —it’s just across the board.” The president spoke about extreme weather and tornadoes during a visit to New Jersey after sudden rains and flooding led to the deaths of over 50 people in the Northeast. Biden paused and returned to his notes, reminding Americans that “we are all in this together.” It’s unclear what Biden was referring to, but perhaps was talking about the devastating derecho storm in August 2020 that damaged millions of acres of crops in Iowa.

    CHICAGO — Spotted skunks that do handstands have, somehow, not gotten a lot of attention. But a researcher from the Field Museum is helping change that in a bid to save the unique creatures. Adam Ferguson, the Negaunee collections manager of mammals at Chicago’s Field Museum, helped research the skunks and contributed to a study published Wednesday in Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution. The team studying the skunks, including Ferguson, found there are more species of the skunks than previously thought — which could improve understanding of the mammals and bolster efforts to protect them. Scientists have recognized as many as 14 species of spotted skunks and as few as four over the past century. The new study concludes there are aren’t four species of spotted skunk — there are seven. The findings suggest Plains spotted skunks — whose range includes the Midwest and who are in decline — should be categorized as a separate species rather than a subspecies, Ferguson said. “If a subspecies is in trouble, there’s sometimes less emphasis on protecting it because it’s not as distinct an...

    Stunning images of nearby galaxies revealing the locations of young stars as the gas warms up around them have been captured by astronomers. The new observations resemble colourful cosmic fireworks, and were obtained with the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile.  Images show different components of the galaxies in distinct colours, allowing astronomers to pinpoint the locations of young stars and their surrounding gas.  Combining these observations with data from the ALMA telescope has allowed the team to shed new light on what triggers clouds of gas to go on to form stars. Astronomers know that stars are born in clouds of gas, but what sets off star formation, and how galaxies as a whole play into it, remains a mystery.  They explored 30,000 nebulae of warm gas through 15 million spectra, and 100,000 cold-gas regions in 90 nearby galaxies to create a picture of star formation. It is hoped this data will be able to be used by future teams of astronomers to learn more about how stars of all sizes are formed and use gas to...
    Many doctors have claimed that the only way to get the COVID-19 pandemic under control in the U.S. - especially in the face of highly infectious variants - is to not only vaccinate adults, but also children. And so, thousands of parents have stepped up and have volunteered their babies, toddlers elementary schoolers and teenagers to undergo vaccine clinical trials. For some parents, the idea of enrolling their children in the studies on kids being conducted by Pfizer and Moderna seems unnecessary because 0.1 percent of all COVID-deaths have occurred in those under age 17. For others, they told CNN the decision to join the trials was an easy one. One family said they volunteered all three of their children because they believe vaccinating youngsters is the only way to reach herd immunity. Another set of patents said their son made the choice himself to enroll in the clinical trial because he wants to go back to school in-person, attend birthday parties and go on summer vacation. The Bui family of Louisiana enrolled all three of their children's -...
    Researchers in Chicago have launched a pilot study looking at whether a wearable sensor can safely monitor COVID-19 patients at home. The University of Illinois Health system has teamed up with PhysIQ, a digital medicine start-up to create artificial intelligence (AI) that people ill with COVID-19 could wear, which would track vital signs including oxygen levels and heart rates. Doctors will be watching the signs remotely and can contact the patients if the system show that something is wrong, and tell them to get to a hospital.  The team says the sensor will not only help prevent hospitals but from becoming overcrowded, will also prevent patients from not seeking care until it's too late.

    Amazon warehouse workers must become 'industrial athletes', says a leaked company pamphlet that compares harsh working conditions to an intense CrossFit regiment.  'Some positions will walk up to 13 miles a day, while some positions will have a total of 20,000 pounds lifted before they complete their shift,' according to the Tulsa, Oklahoma wellness pamphlet, which was obtained by Motherboard.  'Just like an athlete who trains for an event, industrial athletes need to prepare their bodies to be able to perform their best while doing your best.' Amazon breaks the program into six categories: nutrition, hydration, sleep, good footwear, ergonomic work behavior and injury prevention specialists.  The company recommends its workers eat 400 calories every hour, drink two liters of water throughout the day and 'buy shoes at the end of the day when your feet are swollen to allow for plenty of room when they swell during work.'  Former Amazon employee Christian Smalls at a protest outside of an Amazon warehouse during the coronavirus outbreak May 1, 2020 Amazon warehouse workers must become 'industrial athletes' who 'walk up...
    Spotify stock took a tumble Monday as Apple and Amazon both announced they're offering millions of lossless songs to subscribers at no additional charge.  Lossless audio maintains CD-quality sound in small files sizes, allowing listeners to hear songs 'the way the artists created them in the studio,' Apple said. Apple Music will add some 20 million lossless tracks in June, the company said, with 75 million available by the end of the year.  Amazon, which launched its lossless-quality Amazon Music HD in 2019, will no longer charge Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers for the service.   In the wake of the announcements Spotify stock dipped nearly 3 percent today, continuing a decline of more than 30 percent in the last month.

    I ran a 5K in the new Tree Dasher Relay sneakers and didn't notice a difference between them and a lace-up pair. Mara Leighton/Insider If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more. Allbirds' new Tree Dasher Relay ($125) sneakers are a performance shoe with an easy slip-on design.  Like the brand's Dashers, they're neutral with a flared heel for added stability.

    The anxiety reminds me of how I feel as I board an aeroplane, and I’m tempted to reach for the Valium I stash for my fear of flying. But my older sister Susan is as excited as a small child waiting to open her birthday presents. It doesn’t make sense. I’m not doing anything nerve-racking — she’s the one about to go under the knife. As Susan embarks on yet another round of cosmetic surgery — an eye and brow lift this time — I am feeling both furious and fretful. It’s nearly a decade now since, at the age of 61, she swapped her turkey neck for that of a swan. I refused to listen to the gory details of the two-and-a-half-hour op but I knew it involved several incisions, tightening muscles as well as skin and stitching behind the ear. The only bits I read up on were the complications, such as permanent nerve damage and loss of sensation. I was horrified at the time and I’m horrified now. Even as the less-thandesirable wattles at the front of...

    A TV show has sparked outrage in Iraq after featuring fake ISIS fighters who 'kidnap' celebrities, strap fake suicide vests to them and tell them they will be executed.  In the show, terrified celebrities are taken to visit Iraqi families supposedly displaced after fleeing from extremists But once there, the duped participants are ambushed by fake jihadists and told they will be killed - until 'troops' come to the rescue and bring their ordeal to an end. In one example, a woman is fitted with a fake suicide vest, while another celebrity was blind-folded and filmed begging for his life.   What looks like a close shave is, in fact, a candid camera-style television show airing during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan that takes tricking celebrities for laughs to a new level. And it's causing a scandal in Iraq, along with accusations of bad taste.

    Google has been accused of running an 'insider trading' scheme with its ad systems to give its clients a leg up by using publisher data they'd obtained secretly to help them place winning ad bids.  The allegation is part of an antitrust lawsuit filed that was brought by Texas prosecutors and joined by nine other states against the Silicon Valley giant. Papers were filed this week as part of the lawsuit that were filed unredacted then were  redacted and sealed by a judge.  The papers were seen by The Wall Street Journal before they were redacted. They allege that Google ran a secret program which let them play both sides of the industry.   Central to it is an understanding of how Google has unprecedented and unrivaled access to both ad sellers and ad buyers.  Online publishers like media outlets use Google technology to sell their ads. The tech is known as the DoubleClick Ad Exchange, or AdX.  It gives Google access to information on how much they charge for those ads, how often they are sold , to whom they are sold...
    Piers Morgan says he believes more Royal secrets will be revealed in the coming months from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry despite the pair claiming to crave privacy and a quiet life in Southern California.  Morgan, DailyMail.com's editor-at-large, said that the only way the couple are likely to stay in the news going forward is to essentially cash in on their titles whether it be through deals with Netflix or podcasts with Spotify. Morgan made the predictions during his own tell-all with Fox News host Tucker Carlson which aired on Monday.  Piers Morgan sat down for a tell-all interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson which aired on Monday 'Prince Harry is useful to Meghan because he has a royal title and she has been ruthlessly exploiting that title to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.  'Good luck to them if they can get away with it but I think Americans should be on to this now. How much money would they be making if they weren't the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their anodyne views on...
    A gay couple who adopted a newborn baby after finding him abandoned in a New York City subway station is about to celebrate their son's 21st birthday this year — and now one of them has written a children's book about the unique way they became a family. In August of 2000, Danny Stewart, then 34, was on his way to meet his partner, Pete Mercurio, then 32, for dinner when he noticed an odd bundle tucked up against a wall in the 14th Street subway station in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. Shocked and concerned to find a newborn inside — with some of his umbilical cord still attached — Danny rushed to call the police, having no idea that the baby would soon be his son, and that the very judge who would grant him custody would officiate his wedding to Pete over a decade later.
