    The mother of a toddler with a rare condition called 'uncombable hair syndrome' says she will be sad when her daughter grows out of the condition.  Charlotte Davis, 28, from Great Blakenham in Suffolk, appeared on This Morning today to discuss her 18-month-old daughter Layla's condition, which has earned her nicknames like Boris Johnson and Albert Einstein.

    David Axelrod went toe-to-toe with Kellyanne Conway over her insistence that the 2020 election was not fair. During a recent podcast episode for his show The Axe Files, Conway was featured as a guest to discuss her memoir Here’s the Deal. During the conversation, the 2020 election results were an inevitable topic. Axelrod was determined not to travel down a “rabbit hole” in debating the idea of election fraud. “You believe that Joe Biden won the election?” Axelrod asked. “Well, unfortunately I don’t think the election was fair everywhere, but he is the president. And it’s obvious he’s the president because we’re really suffering,” Conway laughed. “He got more votes than President (Donald) Trump,” Axelrod replied. “I believe that he got more electoral votes than President Trump. Yes. And that’s how you win these things. Um, and obviously he got more of the popular vote. Yes. I don’t like what happened. I wanna make this very clear. I don’t like what happened to folks, neither should you,” Conway said defiantly. “We can’t have people opening up ballots and just saying,...
    His first patient was a seven-year-old girl. She arrived at the hospital covered in blood with shards of shrapnel driven deep into her head and hovering on the brink of death. The child’s family had been trying to escape the carnage that exploded around their home on the outskirts of Kyiv after the arrival of Russian forces attempting to capture the Ukrainian capital. But their car was caught up in the battle. Only her father survived unscathed. Her older brother, a prominent footballer, and then her mother had succumbed to horrific wounds within minutes of reaching the hospital in Bucha, 15 miles west of Kyiv. Yet amid these distressing scenes, there was a ray of light. For one of Ukraine’s top paediatric neurosurgeons had just arrived at the hospital and, after a difficult three-hour operation under a constant barrage of bombs and missiles, managed to save the girl’s life. Andriy, 47,  and Olga, 35 (pictured), travelled to Bucha hospital in order to help as many people as they could, which included performing brain surgery in dangerous conditions and then escaping with...
    Afghanistan's only female tour guide has told of the terrifying ordeal she faced trying to escape the war-torn country, with people killed and beaten inside the airport during the stampede to leave. Fatima, who is concealing her surname, was told to leave the city of Herat where she was living by the UN security council in early August as the Taliban moved in.  It was feared that she could be a target for the Taliban as the story of her success in the country's tourist industry was published around the world. The 23-year-old, who started guiding professionally in 2020 after studying journalism at the Herat University, travelled to Kabul in a bid to catch a flight to safety. But speaking to MailOnline, Fatima said there she witnessed things that will scar her forever. Fatima, 23, started working as a tour guide last year for a UK-based company Stopping now and then to recompose herself, she recalled some of the atrocities she saw. 'When we first attempted to get into the airport it was so crowded,' she said. 'I saw...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Walk down the wooded path of Beechview’s Seldom Seen Greenway you will get the experience most people around here are getting right now. No show cicadas. READ MORE: Pittsburgh Weather: Scattered Showers Move In Before Weekend Warm Up There is good reason for that. Despite the outpouring of stories and pictures of the critters on the national news right now, the Brood X cicadas are not appearing here. Oh, they are close by! As close as Mercer and Somerset Counties, but not in the Pittsburgh Metro Area (unless one or two get lost.) It is almost as if we are missing out, as the cicadas are getting a lot of attention and making a lot of noise along the east coast, to the midwest. When they are around you know it as they sing their mating song by the millions. “They’re really kind of innocuous to us, other than the annoyance to some people, certainly they’re mild,” says Entomologist Dr. Chad Gore of Ehrlich Pest Control. “I think a lot of people are...
    Getty Images  Some people with Harm OCD are obsessively worrying they will hurt someone.  Others with the contamination sub-type are receiving conflicting messages about washing their hands. Experts also worry that people with OCD will struggle to re-assimilate back into society.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

In total they were identified and 34 people reported...
    WE get it - trying to convince your kids to help out around the house can be like getting blood from a stone. So rather than continuing to pester her children, one savvy Australian mum decided to hide cash rewards in rubbish around the home - and parents think it's "genius". 2The mum hid a $20 dollar note in an empty toilet roll and put it back on the bathroom floorCredit: Facebook Posting on the Facebook group Mums Who Clean, the woman explained how she stuck $20 [£20] inside an empty toilet roll as a "finder's keepers" prize. However, it did take a while for her husband and kids to catch on - and the piece of cardboard remained on the bathroom floor for days on end. "Clearly this game hasn’t worked here yet," she wrote. "For now, I’ll keep upping the prize money, knowing it’s coming back." Needless to say, other members of the group have now decided to try the chore trick in their own homes. 2She also put a $5 note under a scrap of paper as...

    Lockdown-free Sweden has recorded its highest death toll in a six-month period for 150 years - with 4,500 of its 51,405 fatalities being Covid-19 related.  Its the highest tally from January to the end of June since 1869 when 55,431 people died, largely because of a famine. The population of Sweden then was just 4.1million, compared to 10.3million today. It should also be noted that Sweden remained neutral during the two world wars, whereas most European countries were experiencing the equivalent of a six-month coronavirus death toll in the course of a single battle 75 years ago.  Nevertheless, coronavirus means Sweden's deaths are around 10 percent higher than the average over the last five years, the country's statistics office said on Wednesday.   People enjoy boat rides, canoe paddling and stand up paddle in the nearly 30 degrees Celsius summer weather at the Palsund canal in Stockholm, Sweden. The country has been unique for its liberal approach to the virus, avoiding locking the country down  In April the number of deaths was almost 40 percent higher...
    The line for meals on a cloudy Thursday curves around the block.  Standing 6 feet apart, most wearing masks, guests wait for chicken stew, a green salad, fresh fruit, a sandwich, orange juice, and some iced coffee. Stephen Fenwick, 57, has been coming to the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood for about four months. He had worked delivering food for apps such as DoorDash but started having tech problems with the apps on his phone around the time that New York City began to quarantine, and couldn’t get help.

    Torrelavega, Jul 29 (EFE) .- The kings have begun this Wednesday at the National Cattle Market in Torrelavega their visit to Cantabria, as part of their tour of all the communities, where they have been received by the president of the community, Miguel Ángel Revilla, and with a welcome mountain jota. At around 11:30 am, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia arrived at the Plaza de la Llama by official car accompanied by the Minister of Justice, Juan Carlos Campo. Revilla has greeted Don Felipe and Doña Letizia with the elbow and they have exchanged a few first words. The Agrupación de Danzas Virgen de las Nieves de Tanos de Torrelavega has dedicated to the royal couple a jota montañesa as a greeting, performed with a drum, mountain whistle and castanets.
