    Ousted WeWork founder Adam Neumann has drummed up major interest in his mystery real estate venture, securing $350 million in funding from Silicon Valley investors, valuing the company at $1 billion before it even opens its doors. Neumann, 43, has said over the past few months he plans to create a widely-recognizable apartment brand stacked with community features to lure in the same kind of young professionals who have taken advantage of WeWork's co-working spaces. Still, not much is known about his plans for Flow, which is set to debut in cities like Atlanta, Miami and Nashville next year. A website for the project just says: 'Live life in Flow. Coming 2023.' But despite the public vagueness of the project, Flow has already generated a lot of interest, with Andreessen Horowitz, a prominent Silicon Valley venture capital firm that was an early investor in Facebook and Airbnb, valuing it at $1 billion. The firm has now invested about $350 million into the company — the largest individual check it has ever written in a round of funding to a corporation, the New...

    Norway's beloved Freya the walrus has been put down because she posed 'a continued threat to human safety', officials have confirmed. Freya won the public's hearts basking in the sun of the Oslo fjord, climbing into boats and getting up-close with tourists. But despite repeated appeals to the public to keep their distance from Freya - a young female weighing 1,300 pounds - the mammal continued to attract big crowds. Walruses rarely attack humans, but are certainly strong enough to pose a danger. Fisheries director Frank Bakke-Jensen said: 'Through on-site observations the past week it was made clear that the public has disregarded the current recommendation to keep a clear distance to the walrus.  Freya became an instant hit when she first appeared in the waters near Oslo (image from July) Fisheries director Frank Bakke-Jensen confirmed that Freya was put down humanely Between long naps - a walrus can sleep up to 20 hours a day - Freya was filmed chasing a duck 'Therefore, the Directorate has concluded, the possibility for potential harm to people was high and animal welfare...
    (CNN)In the Supreme Court decision overturning a New York gun law, the three liberal justices opened their dissent by citing data from two of the leading researchers of gun violence in America.The first was the CDC. The second was the Gun Violence Archive."Since the start of this year (2022), there have been 277 reported mass shootings — an average of more than one per day. See Gun Violence Archive," Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in June in the opening paragraph.The dissent was just the latest example of the growing influence of the Gun Violence Archive, a tiny nonprofit that has for less than a decade attempted to log every single incident of gun violence in the US in real time. The organization has been cited by the Supreme Court, policymakers and media outlets like CNN primarily for its ongoing tally of mass shootings, which it defines as any incident in which four people are shot, excluding the shooter.That increasing visibility is a sign of success for Mark Bryant, the executive director of the Gun Violence Archive. He told CNN he started...
    The United States eclipsed 10,000 confirmed cases of monkeypox after 900 cases were added to the ledger on Wednesday. The growing outbreak has left officials scrambling - even considering splitting vaccine doses into fifths despite little evidence the shots will remain effective. The 900 cases recorded were the third highest single-day total since the outbreak first reached the U.S. On Monday, a record 1,424 cases were added to the ledger. Nearly half of all confirmed cases of monkeypox in America have been recorded in the past week. Some of this increase could be a result of increased testing capability for the virus, though. While cases are surging, America's access to vaccines is still fairly limited. As of last week, officials reported having 1.1 million doses on hand with 600,000 having been distributed to local health districts around the country. There is no national data on the number of shots that have been used so far. Federal officials are planning to split the doses into fifths in order to quell this shortage - and deliver them intradermally instead of the typical...

Be in the know before you get the glow… 2 Stay safe in the sun with sunscreenCredit: Getty - Contributor How long does it take to tan in the sun? Everyone has different skin which means everyone’s tanning time will be different.

    A Florida man, completely naked and armed with a machete, ended up lying on his stomach and arrested after trying to steal another man's clothes Monday.  Brandon Wright, 34, was allegedly picking palmetto berries in the woods in the town of DeLand, officials in Volusia County say.  Wright suddenly wielded a large, machete-style knife and demanded that a nearby surveyor give him his clothes, wallet and phone, according to QFox13.  The surveyor started to comply until Wright threw the machete and some of the berries he'd collected at him. Luckily, the sword hit the surveyor by the handle and bounced off his chest.  He then made off into the woods before getting into a white Dodge Challenger and trying to make his getaway.  A Florida man, completely naked and armed with a machete, ended up lying on his stomach and arrested after trying to steal another man's clothes Monday Brandon Wright, 34, was allegedly picking palmetto berries in the woods in the town of DeLand, officials in Volusia County say Wright suddenly wielded a large, machete-style knife and demanded that...

    Nashville (CNN)Across Tennessee, pitching a tent on public land outside of designated camp sites is now a felony offense. Tennessee is the first state in the nation to take such a draconian step, but it's just one of a number of states essentially criminalizing homelessness in an effort to reduce the number of unhoused people sleeping on the streets, at bus stops and in city parks."They're trying to run us out of Nashville," says Momma V as she stood in the mud outside her tent pitched on the banks of the Cumberland River. "We're out here homeless. We're trying to struggle to make it and they're just trying to make it worse on all of us by criminalizing it."A felony conviction would make it even harder for an unhoused person to find a home or a job. "It's a huge deal," says Lindsey Krinks, an outreach worker with Open Table in Nashville. "A felony offense carries up to six years in jail, a $3,000 fine and the loss of voting rights."Similar bills are now under consideration in Arizona and Georgia....
    Post Office has attributed the record amount for personal cash withdrawals at its 11,500 branches to more staycations in the U.K. and people using cash to manage their budgets.Gannet77 | Getty Images Britain's Post Office, which offers banking services as well as mail, handled a record £801 million ($967 million) in personal cash withdrawals in July. In total, more than £3.3 billion in cash was withdrawn and deposited over the Post Office's counters — the first time the amount has crossed the £3.3 billion threshold in its 360-year history. Personal cash withdrawals were up almost 8% month on month at £744 in June, and up over 20% from a year ago to £665 million in July.Staycations and budgetingThe spike in cash use is down to several factors. "Firstly, more people use cash when they go on staycation, secondly, the Post Office helped to hand out support to energy customers in the form of cash, and thirdly, people are using it as a budgeting method," said Laura Suter, head of finance at AJ Bell.

    President Joe Biden on Wednesday recalled how pollution in Delaware gave him and several others cancer as he stopped short of declaring a national emergency on climate change during a major speech on the issue. Biden noted he grew up in Claymont, Delaware, which is the site of many oil refineries.  'You'd have to put on your windshield wipers to get literally the oil slick off the window,' he said of the pollution. 'That's why I — and so damn many other people I grew up with — have cancer,' he said.  Biden had several non-melanoma skin cancers removed before he became president. In his report on Biden's November 2021 physical, Dr. Kevin O'Connor noted the president is still monitored for lesions.  'There are no areas for suspicious for skin cancer at this time,' O'Connor wrote, adding no biopsies were required.  President Joe Biden recalled how pollution in Delaware gave him and several others cancer as he stopped short of declaring a national emergency on climate change during a major speech on the issue Biden grew up in Claymont, Delaware, which is...

    Monkeypox infections in New York City are overwhelmingly being found in men - with more than half of cases being detected among lesbian, gay, bisexual or queer people as well. Officials in the Big Apple revealed the first snapshot of the demographics of people that have been infected with the tropical virus.

    President Joe Biden compared Irish Catholics under British rule with the Palestinian plight during a speech in East Jerusalem announcing $100 million in new aid to area hospitals. President Biden spoke at Augusta Victoria Hospital in East Jerusalem on Friday, and he began his speech with some familiar material — and an aside about what he described as a shared history between the Irish-Catholics of his own heritage and the Palestinian people whom the hospital serves: My name is Joe Biden. I am Jill Biden’s husband. (Laughter.) She has been here twice before me. And before I begin, I’d like to say that — there’s an old expression: “Hope springs eternal.” I — my background and the background of my family is Irish American, and we have a long history of — not fundamentally unlike the Palestinian people with Great Britain and their attitude toward Irish-Catholics over the years, for 400 years.

    (CNN)The highly transmissible Omicron subvariant BA.5 represents at least 65% of new Covid-19 infections in the United States, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Infections are rising in most parts of the country, and these numbers are almost certainly an undercount, given how many people are determining their status through home tests that are not reported. Expert explains how to protect yourself against the recent Covid surges At the same time, many people have lots of summer events planned, including weddings, birthday celebrations and casual get-togethers. What should event organizers keep in mind? How can people think about their own risk in deciding whether to attend and precautions to follow?

    China is using artificial intelligence to 'improve' its court system by recommending laws, drafting documents and alerting 'perceived human errors' in rulings. Judges must now consult the AI on every case by law, Beijing's Supreme Court said in an update on the system published this week, and if they go against its recommendation they must submit a written explanation for why. The AI has also been connected to police databases and China's Orwellian social credit system, handing it the power to punish people - for example by automatically putting a thief's property up for sale online. Beijing has hailed the new technology for making 'a significant contribution to the judicial advancement of human civilisation' - while critics say it risks creating a world in which man is ruled by machine. China has plugged artificial intelligence into its 'smart court' system - allowing it to make rulings, draft laws, and charge people with crimes (pictured, a Chinese court during Covid) China has been developing a 'smart court' system since at least 2016, when Chief Justice Qiang Zhou called for technology to be...
    A slew of just-published polls spell bad news for both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump: The overwhelming majority of people don't want to see either run for president in 2024. A Tuesday poll from Morning Consult and Politico found that only 29% of over 2,000 respondents thought the president should run for reelection, compared to 64% who said he shouldn't. That comes just days after the New York Times saddled Biden with his lowest approval rating yet, 33%, in a poll that also found 64% of Democrats, including 94% of Democrats under 30, hoping for a new nominee in 2024. The poll did give Biden a slight 3-point advantage over Trump in a head-to-head matchup. DEMOCRATS POSITION THEMSELVES TO RUN AGAINST BIDEN IN 2024 Poll respondents pointed to Biden's age as their chief concern, followed closely by his actual performance thus far as president. Senior Democratic officials have worried for months that Biden's inability to advance liberal proposals, ranging from voting rights to an ambitious social spending bill, would drive down turnout among younger voters in...
    Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) recently announced two historic multistate settlements, totaling $26 billion, with four pharmaceutical companies over their roles in the opioid crisis. “We are working to get these opioid abatement funds to local communities as quickly as possible,” Brnovich said in a press release. “They will help facilitate more effective treatment, education, and prevention as our state continues to tackle this heartbreaking crisis.” The companies involved in the settlements include pharmaceutical distributors Cardinal Health, McKesson, AmerisourceBergen, and manufacturer Johnson & Johnson. According to Brnovich, the first consent judgment came following investigations into whether the three distributors fulfilled their legal duty of refusing to ship opioids to pharmacies that submitted suspicious drug orders. A second judgment followed a Johnson & Johnson investigation to determine if it misled patients and doctors about the addictive nature of opioid drugs. In each settlement, all parties deny the allegations against them. The end result is more than $540 million given to Arizona and its political subdivisions over the next 18 years. The Arizona Attorney General’s Office (AGO) also secured an additional...
    Dozens of people lined up for vaccines against monkeypox in New York City Friday as the city launched its second jabbing drive. The queue — formed mostly of men — snaked around the side of the Chelsea sexual health clinic in Manhattan this morning. Gay or bisexual men who have multiple sexual partners over two weeks are again being offered the jab in America's monkeypox capital, alongside anyone exposed to a patient with the tropical disease. But the 2,500 appointments available for the jabs ran out within minutes yesterday, as thousands hurried to grab a slot. Health officials were slammed for a 'technical glitch' which allowed so many people to book slots early using an old link that by the time the first batch was released it was already full, leaving frustrated New Yorkers saying they were left with 'zero chance' of getting a jab. New York now has 141 cases of monkeypox, the most out of any city in the United States — which has registered 700 infections to date. Pictured above is the queue of mostly men waiting...
    Disneyland's social media accounts were hacked by a self-proclaimed 'super hacker' who made racists posts in an effort to seek 'revenge' on the California theme park. The hacker, who identified himself as David Do, took over the park's Instagram and Facebook accounts early Thursday morning, making a slew of derogatory posts threatening black people. Do made multiple posts featuring the n-word, claimed to have invented COVID-19 and alleged he was working on a new COVID20 virus. He also said the attack was revenge of Disney staff who mocked him 'for having a small penis.' Disney deleted the posts from its account  - which has more than 8.4 million followers - within the hour. The social media hack marks the latest controversy for The Walt Disney Company which recently sparred off with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis following an employee walkout over the state's so-called Don't Say Gay bill.  Disney did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com's request for comment. This is a developing story.

    GLENCOE, Ill. (WLS) -- The world premiere of new musical event "Pearl's Rolling with the Blues" from Chicago's own Felicia P. Fields is happening at Writers Theatre in Glencoe and continues through July."We wanted to do something where we would bring people into a space and energize them and let them feel free enough to not be in your regular theater environment, where you don't talk, but somehow participate in some way, and be a part of something where they can let loose," Fields said."Felicia, let's just let you do your thing with a little bit of innuendo and stories and stuff that we can bring your life to fruition and get a sense of who Pearl is," said director Ron O.J. Parson. "I want people to know all the different aspects of Blues music with this particular person as well, about her, and her interpretations of the blues. We got a real combination; gospel, blues, folk, you name it, it's up in there."The show pays homage to the blues, and its creators believe it's important to recognize the art...

    BRAIN tumours are on the rise in England with a 50 per cent surge in cases since 2001. In 2019, 9,960 people were diagnosed with the devastating cancers compared to 6,577 18 years earlier. 1Shocking figures reveal that brain tumour cases have doubled in England since 2001 as medics struggle to boost survival ratesCredit: Getty The Brain Tumour Charity said the ageing population means more people are at risk and high-tech scans are detecting more cases. But medics are struggling to boost survival rates and 90 per cent of patients die within five years. Brain tumours are a top cause of cancer death in under-40s and The Wanted singer Tom Parker died of the disease in March. Four in 10 cases don’t get caught until someone is in A&E, by which time survival chances are slim.Dr David Jenkinson, chief scientific officer at the charity, said: “These worrying figures show just how urgently we need to act on this devastating and life-changing disease.

    A 27-year-old Italian mountaineer snapped a grinning selfie of himself in front of a glacier in the Dolomites in Italy minutes before he was killed in an avalanche. Filippo Bari, who has a four-year-old son, sent the picture to his family with the message 'look where I am' just 20 minutes before a huge chunk of the Marmolada glacier broke off, sending an avalanche of ice, snow and rocks down the slope on Sunday.  At least seven people were killed and five people are still missing - but hopes of finding the hikers alive are fading due to the sheer scale of the avalanche. Italy has blamed the collapse on climate change and fears more of the glacier could come crashing down have prevented access to much of the area where the hikers, some roped together, are believed to be buried.  Filippo Bari snapped a grinning selfie of himself in front of a glacier in the Dolomites in Italy minutes before he was killed in an avalanche A helicopter flies over the avalanche area in the aftermath of an...
    A mother who survived the deadly Independence Day shooting in Highland Park, Illinois, recalled the moments of horror as she was grazed by a bullet while taking her toddler to safety inside her husband's store.  Abby Brosio was on a family outing at the tragic parade with her two children, 3 and 1, and her in-laws when chaos ensued around 10.20am Monday.  She was standing next to her father-in-law when she realized the shooter, now identified by police as Robert E. Crimo III, 22, randomly fired at attendees from the roof of a business.  'I was holding my one-year-old and behind us, I thought there was a sound of fireworks and seconds later I realized that's not what it was, so I believe I hit the ground with my daughter,' Abby told Good Morning America.  '... I looked up at the neighboring business across the street and saw the shooter on the roof and I just screamed that it was a shooter.'  Abby rushed to safety inside the Gearhead Outfitters' store, where her husband, Tony, is the store manager. His father...
    Illinois's July 4 massacre which saw six people killed in another day of horrific violence in the US took place in a state which has the sixth strictest gun laws in the country. The midwestern state enforces universal background checks, red flag warnings and safe storage requirements yet it has not imposed a ban on assault weapons. Gun control groups say many of the weapons that fuel the horrific gang violence in Chicago flood in from nearby states which have much more relaxed gun laws. More than 60 per cent of the weapons used in shootings in Chicago in 2016 came from outside Illinois.  And this year, analysis shows less than half the total guns in Illinois actually come from the state, at 49.8 per cent, with nearly 17 per cent from Indiana. It is not yet known what weapon was used by the alleged gunman Robert 'Bobby' Crimo III, 22, who picked off passersby at random from a roof in Highland Park yesterday. But authorities said they recovered a high-powered rifle from the scene of the massacre in Highland...

    (CNN)Milwaukee officials are urging the public to come forward with any information related to the killing of a transgender Black woman who was found dead two weeks ago. Brazil Johnson, 28, was found fatally shot on June 15 in the city's Triangle North neighborhood. As of late Thursday, authorities were still searching for clues that can point to a suspect. "We are outraged to hear of the loss of a young, Black transgender woman in our city," Alderwoman JoCasta Zamarripa said Thursday during a news conference. "It is devastating that in light of Milwaukee's recent Pride celebrations, we are once again reminded of the harsh reality that transgender Black and brown women suffer higher rates of violence than their straight counterparts, as well as their lesbian, gay, and bisexual counterparts," she added.At least 19 transgender people have been fatally shot or killed in the US this year, according to the Human Rights Campaign. In 2021, the campaign tracked a record number of such killings, with at least 50 transgender and gender non-conforming people killed.Deadly attacks on Black trans women are...
    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,...
    Meghan Markle is 'certainly making the right noises' when it comes to a potential career in US politics, according to royal expert Russell Myers.   Speaking on the Lorraine show today, he discussed the comments Meghan, 40, made to Vogue at the weekend about the repealing of Roe v. Wade during a conversation with feminist author and activist Gloria Steinem, 88, and journalist Jessica Yellin. The Duchess, who lives in Montecito, California, with her husband Prince Harry, 37, and their children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, said all men need to join women in the fight to protect abortion rights, adding that Harry is a feminist, and he reacted with anger to the Supreme Court's decision. The conversation reignited rumours that the royal may be planning to enter politics, which Russell said he thought is likely.  Meghan Markle, 40, pictured here with her husband Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Holland in April, has reignited rumours that she may be considering a political career following her comments on abortion According to royal expert Russell Myers, the Duchess is 'certainly making the right noises'...
