    A WOMAN explained that her mum's damaging comments and behaviour led her to cut all contact with her, and stop her from seeing her grand-daughter. She explained that her mum subjected her to constant comments as a child, resulting in the woman developing an eating disorder. 1The woman explained that her mum was banned from seeing her baby after calling her chubbyCredit: Getty In a post uploaded to Reddit, she explained that her mum was now commenting on her 17-month-old daughter's weight and it was the last straw for her.

It all started when the mayor questioned Foxx’s decision not to file any charges in a deadly South Austin shootout. Foxx then criticized the mayor at a news conference. On Friday, the mayor’s office said the two sides met and had a productive meeting. Both Lightfoot and Foxx released statements saying they are committed to working together to reduce crime in the city.

    Not many people would have the gall to compare Megan Rapinoe and Donald Trump – two public enemies with vastly different views on social and political issues. Trump is in favor of “shut up and dribble.” Rapinoe, a star for the US women’s national soccer team believes athletes are being “selfish” if they don’t use their platform to speak out against injustices. But according to Rapinoe, she’s not totally unlike Trump. “I am who I am all the time,” Rapinoe said during CNN’s TV premiere of the documentary LFG on Monday — which previously debuted on the HBO Max streaming service . “It’s not like some act. I mean, I don’t know if I want to make this comparison, but in the same ways that people liked that Trump just said some wild ass shit, but, like, I’m like that, but for good. You know? And like, we need more of that.” Last month, Trump mocked Rapinoe and the entire USWNT for not winning gold at the Tokyo Olympics. “If our soccer team, headed by a radical group of Leftist...
    IT was all going so brilliantly with the vaccine programme, wasn’t it?  Developed at record speed and then rolled out unbelievably efficiently, to begin with. The UK administered more Covid-19 vaccine first doses per 100 people than any other nation of comparable population size. 5Model Sophia Peschisolido is Karren Brady's daughterCredit: Refer to Caption In March, more than half a million people were getting vaccinated every day, with first doses peaking at 752,000 shots in a single day.  Then it was extended to the under-30s. And we seem to have ground to a halt.  At the beginning it was OK. In the week to June 18, more than 90,000 under-25s got jabbed every day. But NHS figures show that only 18,100 under-25s a day have come forward to get their first dose in the past week.  Demand for the jab among young adults has fallen by 80 per cent and the rollout has dropped to its slowest pace yet, even though anyone over the age of 18 is eligible. With three million under-30s still unjabbed, it is pretty clear...
    Nine members of Congress represent districts that run along the nearly 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border, and those lawmakers fall on different sides of President Biden's recent decision to halt all border wall construction. No district was untouched by the former Trump administration's wall projects. Although Congress backed one-third of the total cost, the remaining two-thirds was diverted from the Treasury and Pentagon, angering Democrats. The Washington Examiner reached out to all nine lawmakers to see how they feel about Biden's decision to stop one of former President Donald Trump's biggest undertakings. Rep. Filemon VelaDemocrat, Texas 34th Vela’s district starts at the Gulf of Mexico and runs about 70 land miles west, past the cities of Brownsville and Harlingen. The Rio Grande acts as a natural border between both countries, but the region sees the most arrests related to illegal immigration than any other nationwide. Wall progress in southeastern Texas has been slower than in other regions, with a dozen miles completed and 100 miles set to go up in his and neighboring districts, adding to the 55 miles of...

    (CNN)Having empathy for other people goes a long way in fostering strong relationships. In fact, empathy is a fundamental building block for conflict resolution and understanding and bonding with others. Psychological science has defined the term in many ways, but simply, it's "the ability to perceive accurately what another person is feeling," said Jennifer Lerner, a psychological scientist and the Thornton F. Bradshaw professor of public policy, decision science and management at the Harvard Kennedy School in Massachusetts. Her research examines human judgment and decision-making. We need empathy because it motivates us to take action when we see that people are suffering, said Sarah Konrath, an associate professor of philanthropic studies at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy."Across time and situations, humans need empathic skills and empathy in order to make societal cooperation possible," said Lerner, also a former chief decision scientist for the US Navy. "As Charles Darwin [observed in 1872], the ability to recognize 'the expression of emotion in man and animals' plays a profound role in all societies, including nonhuman primate societies."The health benefits of...
    By Yew Lun Tian BEIJING (Reuters) - The U.S. and Chinese militaries must keep communication channels open and take steps to prevent conflict even as ties worsen, an influential Chinese government think tank said on Tuesday, with one adviser suggesting an invitation to a major U.S. drill. Relations between the two largest economies have nosedived in recent months as they argue over everything from trade to the coronavirus, with China also angered by U.S. military activity in the disputed South China Sea and near Chinese-claimed Taiwan. In a report, China's National Institute for South China Seas, struck a more moderate tone than recent denunciations of Washington by Beijing, warning that worsening military ties would boost the possibility of armed conflict or crisis. The Trump administration has said it is in a "great-power competition" with China and has steadily increased the number of soldiers stationed in the Asia-Pacific region to 375,000, including 60% of its Navy ships, the report said. "Stable military relations ... must become the stabilising factor in bilateral relations," institute head Wu Shicun told a media briefing. The...
    SIENA, Italy (AP) — Alex Zanardi remains in stable condition after a crash on his handbike and for now will stay in a medically induced coma, doctors said Monday in a fresh medical update. The Santa Maria alle Scotte hospital in Siena said the Italian auto racing champion-turned-Paralympic gold medalist spent a third night in intensive care without change and that his neurological condition remained grave. “The neurological evaluations will be carried out only when we reduce the sedation, which we are not thinking of doing at the moment,” Dr. Roberto Gusinu said. “We need to have patience, a lot of patience.” Zanardi, who lost both of his legs in an auto racing crash nearly 20 years ago, has been in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator since he crashed his handbike into a truck near the Tuscan town of Pienza on Friday during a relay race. Doctors said he suffered serious facial and cranial trauma and have warned of possible brain damage. The 53-year-old Zanardi won two championships in CART in the United States and had two...
    Jody Serrano2 hours ago•Filed to:snapchatsnapchatSnapjuneteenthsocial mediaSaveSnapchat is trying to explain what happened with its Juneteenth Lens.Photo: Robyn Beck (AFP via Getty Images) Snapchat apparently wants to make sure people know that both Black and white employees were involved in the creation of the offensive filter, or Lens in Snapchat jargon, it launched on Juneteenth that placed an approximation of the Pan-African flag behind users and asked them to smile to break the chains of slavery. The company addressed the issue in an internal email written by its vice president of diversity and inclusion, Oona King, that was published by the Verge on Sunday. In the email, King defended the company against the accusation that it had failed to include Black perspectives in the creation of the Lens, and said that Black Snap team members had been involved in every step of its development and approval. In hindsight, she said the company should have developed a more appropriate Lens.

Michael Pack, a conservative filmmaker who took over as CEO of the agency this past week, is facing pushback from congressional Democrats on the committees with oversight of the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM). The criticism on the right has come from conservative commentators and foreign policy analysts, including those who supported his nomination two years earlier and are seen as Trump loyalists. Critics fear Pack will jeopardize the independence of the broadcast networks, which are charged with objectively reporting about the U.S. and its foreign policy to an international audience of 350 million people and in 61 languages.

    DENVER (AP) — Seasonal colds and the flu spread through NFL locker rooms just about every year, sending some players home sick while others slog through practices hoping they’ll feel better by game day. Last December, the Patriots flew two airplanes to Houston to keep the healthy players apart from sick ones, which included seven starters. On the final weekend of the 2016 season, the Raiders were ravaged by a bug that swept through their entire roster and waylaid hopes of a deep playoff run. Now, teams have COVID-19 to worry about. Offseason workout programs have been entirely virtual since the league closed team facilities in March because of the coronavirus pandemic. Coaches began returning to their offices Friday but players not seeking treatment for injuries probably won’t be allowed to return until training camps open next month. Many players polled by The Associated Press say they’re scared to return to work without a cure or a vaccine for the coronavirus that has infected millions worldwide and killed more than 100,000 Americans. But they’re putting their trust in the health...
