    13 "THAT'S the most I’ve laughed in five months!" chuckled war-ravaged Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky.  The cause of his amusement was my entreaty that he finally publicly apologise to his wife, the First Lady Olena Zelenska, for not telling her he was going to run for President. 13Piers Morgan with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky and First Lady Olena ZelenskaCredit: TalkTV 13The couple spoke candidly about their marriage and their feelings towards RussiaCredit: TalkTV 13The President and his wife, who first met 26 years ago, revealed how their marriage had been strengthened during Ukraine's heroic response to Russian aggressionCredit: TalkTV Instead, incredibly, she found out by watching the then-comedian announce it live on a New Year’s Eve variety show he was hosting back in 2018.

    NANDO'S has achieved cult-like status in the UK with chicken fans comparing their spice level and confusing Americans with the "cheeky" meal. A former employee shared their top tips for making the most of your Portuguese poultry by sharing a secret menu item with fans. 1The Nando's employee shared the details of a secret menu item that everyone should tryCredit: Alamy In a Reddit thread called: "I used to work in Nando’s, [ask me anything]" the ex staff member shared insider tips on the popular restaurant.

    The sprawling city of Los Angeles, with its 4 million people and 500 square miles, shrinks at election time. Especially primary election time. In 2017, Mayor Eric Garcetti won a second term outright with 81.4% of the returns, but 8 out of 10 voters blew off the election. Votes in Tuesday’s primary are still being counted, but to no one’s surprise, the vast majority of voters sat out the election for L.A. mayor, council seats and various county, state and congressional races. Statewide, the numbers were about the same based on early indications. Not historically low, but nothing to cheer about. So why does this keep happening, even as it becomes easier to vote than to order a pizza, and even as festering issues such as homelessness drive demand for fixes? “Unfortunately, I did not participate,” a young man named Jeremy told me as his shift ended at a COVID-19 testing site at the Eagle Rock Rec Center. California Whom did your neighborhood vote for in the L.A. mayoral primary? At least he knew who ran for mayor, which...
    It’s rare to see Charles Hallman of the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder in a suit and tie. There’s no need to dress up when you’re covering sports, as Hallman has for MSR, Minnesota’s oldest Black newspaper, since 1990. But one afternoon in early April, there was Hallman, all decked out and dapper as he walked into the Target Center, completing the look with the tan trench coat that once belonged to his father, Charles Sr.  The occasion? A ceremony at the NCAA Women’s Basketball Final Four, celebrating Hallman’s induction into the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Hall of Fame for his lifetime of women’s college basketball coverage. Hallman was the only one of the five Class of 2022 inductees not from a mainstream media publication, and the only one honored in Minneapolis; the rest were feted at the Men’s Final Four in New Orleans. He’s believed to be only the third Black inductee overall, joining William Rhoden of the New York Times (now ESPN’s Andscape) and the late Brian Burwell of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. At the same time, Hallman, 67,...
    WHAT springs to mind when you think about Build-a-Bear? For us, it's hoards of excited kids, cute toy-sized tutus and those iconic cardboard "houses" all the cuddly friends go home in. But while it looks like one of the best enjoyable jobs in the world from the outside looking in, former employee Yerry knows exactly how emotional it can be too. 3Yerry filmed herself making a 'Memory Bear' for a customerCredit: tiktok.com/@lazybruja 3It dawned on her that the recording was the last voicemail they'd ever received from a loved oneCredit: tiktok.com/@lazybruja Earlier this year, the 24-year-old posted a TikTok video of herself fulfilling an online order in-store.

    It’s not just Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law. Republicans across the country are flooding state legislatures with hundreds of anti-LGBTQ bills, most are targeting the nation’s most vulnerable: children and transgender people. So-called “bathroom bills” over the past few years were popular among the fear-mongering religious right and their partners, the Republican Party, but today the focus has become the often false claims that children, from kindergarten on up, and being taught about sex, sexual orientation, homosexuality and bisexuality, gender identity, and other concepts. In response to these often false allegations this week alone an Ohio Republican introduced a “Don’t Say Gay” bill (and then ran away from reporters.) Republicans in Tennessee tried to bypass the Supreme Court’s 2015 Obergefell ruling by filing an all-ages “one man one woman” bill, only to have to amend it so only people 18 and older could marry. And Alabama just sent a dual “Don’t Say Gay” and anti-trans bathroom bill to the governor, along with a ban on medically-necessary gender-affirming care for transgender youth and teens.

    MOST retail stores have some kind of policy regarding shoplifters, whether it be to call security and have the thieves kicked out, or something much more legally serious. But Macy's allegedly has a major perk for employees who report shoplifters, according to one woman's claims. 2According to a claim from a Macy's employee, they get store credit worth the amount of stolen goods when they report a shoplifterCredit: Getty 2They also claimed their reward gets double in June because it's the month with the highest frequency of theftCredit: Getty The woman, who claimed to work for Macy's, said in her tweet: "When Macy's employees report shoplifters they get the value of whatever was being stolen in-store credit. "In June they get double. No penalties for false reports." Someone else replied to the tweet and asked: "Why June?" to which the woman wrote: "Statistically it was our worst month for theft." A few alleged former Macy's employees also chimed in on the woman's tweet, such as one who wrote: "As a former employee…ding ding ding we have a...
    A father in North Carolina slammed Critical Race Theory (CRT) and declared that parents are reclaiming control during a school board meeting in Cabarrus County on Monday. Brian Echevarria said the community realized the politics surrounding the mask “distraction” had lost steam and it was time for citizens to move forward. “And one of the things I wanted to thank you for tonight was the resolution, the non-discrimination resolution, the CRT deal,” he continued: Because it’s happening, and as a parent I speak to other parents. There’s a few things that we don’t want. I’m bi-racial, I’m bi-lingual, I’m multi-cultural. The fact is in America, in North Carolina, I can do anything I want and I teach that to my children. And the person who tells my little pecan-colored kids that they’re somehow oppressed based on the color of their skin would be absolutely wrong and absolutely at war with me. And I think that’s the same for every parent. What the masks showed us is that parents, the most powerful group of people in our country, that they’re taking...

    Tenured law professor Amy Wax has come under fire for making racist comments during an online interview with a fellow academic A tenured professor at the University of Pennsylvania has come under fire for making racist comments during an online interview with a fellow academic - and it's not the first time she's faced backlash for such remarks. 'The United States is better off with fewer Asians and less Asian immigration,' law professor Amy Wax brazenly declared in a December interview with Brown University's Glenn Loury. The off-color comment came during a conversation between the two academics concerning US immigration. 'It’s just harder to assimilate those people or to have confidence that our way of life will continue if we bring a lot of people in who are not familiar with it. These are not original ideas on the [political] right,' Wax told Loury on his web show, which covers topics ranging from academia, journalism, and various social issues.  'This might result in a shift in the racial profile of people who come in,' Wax went on. 'Obviously, we'll have...
    Two Catholic colleges in Minnesota are investigating allegations of an ongoing 'sex competition' among men living in one campus dormitory. A group of St. John's University students living in Saint Patrick Hall reportedly started a competition to see who could have the most sexual encounters with women at their sister school, the College of St. Benedict.  Two people familiar with the situation, speaking to the student newspaper The Record on the basis of anonymity, said the competition is run through a group chat and began with a list of names - all Benedict women - that the men were supposed to seduce. The men also are said to have assigned point values to various sex acts, but specifics regarding the acts, as well as how the contest is run, remain a secret.  It is unknown how many students have participated in the competition or exactly how it has evolved since it first began, or when it even began. A group of St. John's University (pictured) students started a 'sex competition' to see who could have the most encounters with women at...

The cover of the issue shows Harry, who turned 37 Wednesday, wearing all-black as he leans on Markle, 40, who is dressed in white. Both royals stare into the camera with serious expressions as they pose in front of a woodsy scene. “They turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation. They give voice to the voiceless through media production,” chef José Andrés wrote in a short essay about the pair. “Hand in hand with nonprofit partners, they take risks to help communities in need — offering mental-health support to black women and girls in the US and feeding those affected by natural disasters in India and the Caribbean.”...
    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are the stars of the new Time Magazine's 2021 list of the 100 most influential people on the planet, it was revealed today. The US publication released a glossy and heavily-airbrushed cover on Harry's 37th birthday showing the Duke of Sussex stood behind his wife with his arms on her right shoulder. Harry is dressed in all black and Meghan in white on a terrace at their $14.65million mansion and estate in Montecito, California, as Time said they couple are 'blessed through birth and talent, and burned by fame', adding: 'It would be much safer to enjoy their good fortune and stay silent'. In another image they are in matching grey office-style clothes next to a window in pictures taken by Serbian Pari Dukovic. But one critic, a fellow photographer, tweeted: 'Terrible retouching job. They look CGI'. The glossy photos are accompanied by a gushing profile, branded sycophantic by critics, written by their friend and chef José Andrés, whose charity World Central Kitchen is loved by the Sussexes and supported by their Archewell foundation.   He wrote: 'In a world...

    As a host of states try to change their voting rules, most Americans say they'd prefer the voting process to be left alone — or made easier. Relatively few want it to be harder after an election that saw record turnout. With the fight over voting attracting national attention, partisans say it's a high-stakes battle that affects their electoral fortunes. Republicans think Democrats will do better in elections if voting becomes easier. At the same time, Democrats think they'll suffer if it becomes harder to vote, and they believe many of their constituent groups, including Hispanic and Black Americans, would lose political power. Voting rules: Who wins and who loses?Many — more than four in 10 — foresee an impact on election outcomes if rules are changed. Among those who expect an impact, by 10 to one, more think if voting rules are made easier for people to vote that would do more to help Democrats win elections than Republicans. And by a similar margin, they feel if voting rules make it harder to vote, that would benefit Republican candidates more...
    Almost half a billion people globally now have diabetes, but most of them don't realize, according to a new study. Researchers from the University of Michigan found that the number of people living with diabetes globally more than quadrupled since 1980, when there were around 108 million people living with the condition. They also found that the disease is no longer the preserve of wealthier countries with access to rich, unhealthy food - with 80 percent of diabetes suffers now living in low and middle-income countries.  The study, published in medical journal The Lancet did, not offer a theory as to why diabetes cases are rocketing, or why poorer countries have been so badly hit. But health experts have previously blamed a combination of large-scale movement of people from the countryside to live in cities, unhealthy diets, and sedentary lifestyles.  According to a new study, nearly half a billion people worldwide have diabetes (file photo) Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body cannot produce insulin and Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body has trouble producing insulin The...

Load Error Mental strength requires you to pay attention to three things: the way you think, feel and act. Thinking big, feeling good and acting brave helps us grow our mental muscles.

    A DRIVER was left shocked when he learnt the proper use for a slot on his car petrol cap. Justin, who posts on TikTok, revealed the mind-boggling discovery about the fuel cap he once thought was useless. 3The man shared the hack on TikTok - baffling other usersCredit: militj01 3One man tried the trick for himselfCredit: TikTok In the clip, he shows himself removing the fuel cap from his car, as if he was going to fill it up with petrol.

    Youth-obsessed advertising is wasted on the young. If you’re over 50 in America, you might feel that corporate America is ignoring you — and you’d be right. Major brands and most advertising don’t target older people. Instead, their message is that being young is beautiful, hopeful, colorful and virile. Old and gray is, well, old and gray. What corporate America should know by now is that older people live longer — and have long memories. Companies overlook this group at their own peril, and at a cost to profits. That’s because older people have most of the money and buying power — not just for themselves but for their children and grandchildren. Ken Dychtwald is a psychologist and expert on aging and life transitions who is strongly critical of the rampant ageism in America — and age segregation in particular. Ageism, such as is prevalent in advertising and marketing, perpetuates stereotypes and myths, pushes people to the margins, and for companies and their investors reflects extremely poor business sense. Instead, Dychtwald argues for generations to interact, in...
    Nadine Smith/Facebook At age 20, Nadine Smith, then a student at USF, served on the founding board of the International Gay and Lesbian Youth Organization. Her activism was just getting started. The following year, 1987, she went to her first LGBTQ march on Washington—well before the five-letter acronym existed. Six years later, she was one of four national co-chairs for the March on Washington for Lesbian Gay and Bi Equal Right and Liberation, an event that drew more than a million people. Smith was part of the historic confab with then-president Bill Clinton, the first Oval Office meeting between a sitting president and LGBTQ leaders. So when she founded Equality Florida with fellow activist Stratton Pollitzer in 1997—as a reaction to Republican Jeb Bush being elected governor—she was a seasoned activist with an impressive resume and tons of cred. The organization has become the leading LGBTQ advocacy group in Florida, and Smith, its CEO, has built a national reputation as a fearless opponent of bigotry and a savvy political mover-and-shaker, especially in Tallahassee. “Nadine, who I’ve known...
    A FEARLESS diver who gets close and person with great white sharks for extraordinary pictures is not concerned as "most people" survive attacks. The terrifying marine creatures tend to scare most people, but not photographer Dickie Chivell, who snapped one as it flew towards the camera with its jaw wide open. 9One of the stunning snaps by Dickie Chivell of the great white sharkCredit: mediadrumimages/DickieChivell/@dickie_chivell 9Dickie says he spends three-and-a-half hours with the sharks each dayCredit: mediadrumimages/DickieChivell/@dickie_chivell 9The photographer gets up close and personal with the huge sharksCredit: mediadrumimages/DickieChivell/@dickie_chivell Other images showed the enormous sharks’ bloodied gums and impressive seven-inch gnashers in riveting snapshots.

Dickie used a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV with a 14mm wide angle fish eye lens from a distance of just 10ft away. The thrill-seeking photographer said: "I like to get up really close to them. "I’ve got longer lenses, but I don’t really take them along. Sometimes I put chum in the water to get...
    Dan Egan’s formal title right now is Director of Behavioral Finance and Investing at robo-advisor Betterment, but on his personal web site, he describes his life’s work as “helping us lead more fulfilling, smarter lives by understanding how psychology interacts with design, money, investing, spending and randomness.” In practice, that means Egan helps design portfolios and other aspects of the way Betterment’s nearly half a million customers interact with the platform. Egan says he’s proud that Betterment investors have the lowest “behavior gap” he knows of – that is, the smallest gap between the potential returns they could ideally realize in the markets and the returns they actually wound up with. MarketWatch spoke with Egan in early June, a few months after the market shocks of the spring, which many observers believe had an outsized impact on individuals, for better and worse. The company says new accounts were up 25% in the first quarter compared to Q1 of 2019 — perhaps in part because Betterment rolled out a new banking product in the early months of the year. ...
    (CNN)Whether contained in yogurt or stuffed into capsules and sold on pharmacy shelves, probiotics are popular among the health conscious, with millions of people around the world thought to use them.But a new report from the American Gastroenterological Association said that these so-called good bacteria don't do much for gut health — including digestive conditions like Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis or irritable bowel syndrome.Health effects of probiotics: Where do we stand?"For the majority of the digestive diseases we studied, currently there is not enough evidence to recommend using probiotics," said Dr. Geoffrey Preidis, a pediatric gastroenterologist at the Texas Medical Center and spokesperson for the AGA.Depending on where you live, probiotics are sold over the counter or by prescription -- but the supplements can be costly and their formulation varies widely."While our guideline does highlight a few use cases for probiotics, it more importantly underscores that the public's assumptions about the benefits of probiotics are not well-founded," said Dr. Grace L. Su, a professor of medicine and chief of gastroenterology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in a news...
