    Joe Rogan will never host former President Donald Trump on his podcast because he said he is "not interested in helping him." Rogan, 54, made the revelation during a Monday interview with Lex Fridman, and he was very candid about his views toward Trump. "I am not a Trump supporter in any way, shape, or form," Rogan said. "I've had the opportunity to have him on my show more than once. I've said no every time." WATCH: UFO OVER IOWA CAN'T BE EXPLAINED, OFFICIALS INVESTIGATING "I don’t want to help him. I'm not interested in helping him," he said. The former president is an extremely polarizing figure, Rogan said, and people have abandoned "their own ethics and morals and principles" to attack him and his supporters because they view him as "an existential threat to democracy itself." "The Trump era is also going to be one of the weirder times when people look back historically about the division in this country." The podcast host and UFC commentator fully expects Trump to...
    A 31-year-old woman who hasn't plucked her eyebrows or upper lip for two years said the move has helped out her dating life, despite some negative backlash. Eldina Jaganjac made the decision to stop grooming her facial hair because she was frustrated that it is expected of women. 2Eldina Jaganjac made the decision to stop plucking her eyebrows and upper lip in March 2020Credit: Instagram / @eldina_jaganjac The viral Instagrammer, who works as a teacher in Copenhagen, Denmark, revealed she has received nasty comments from people on the street over her decision. "I realized that I could spend my time much better. I’m not against shaving or removing hair, but it’s the expectation that every woman should do it all the time that annoys me,” Eldina said in an interview with Brightside. However, while Eldina respects someone's decision to shave or not, she has not been shown the same acceptance. "I've had people come up to me on the street telling me it was cool, and a few yelling at me. That was uncomfortable at first, but if some people have nothing to do other than yell at...
    THIS family of eight includes two parents, two daughters, and four infants that are hyper-realistic dolls, but they get treated the same as the other children. Christina and her husband, Bill, are raising four fake infants alongside their two daughters. 3Christina and Bill raise their two daughters alongside four fake babiesCredit: Youtube/truly 3The four dolls are incredibly life-like and some have real hairCredit: Youtube/truly 3The dolls can cost over $10,000Credit: Youtube/truly The parents feed the babies and change diapers no different than they did when their daughters were newborns. Noah, Chloe, Dax, and Clare all have incredibly life-like skin and hair and are anatomically correct. Christina said the newborn phase was her favorite with her daughters, so she wanted a way to experience that all the time. Now, she has four "reborn baby dolls." While she's fully aware they aren't real babies, she says it's like a type of role-playing for her.

    On Thursday, a small earthquake shook the media world. Hopefully, its shockwaves are felt far and wide. CNN announced that its much-hyped streaming service CNN+ was shutting down on April 30th, less than one month after its launch, completely wasting $300 million that was already spent on developing the service. You read that right, more than a quarter of a billion dollars blown. There were rumors since its launch and last week it came out that the service had possibly drawn less than 100,000 subscribers (and as many at 150,000), who were willing to pay $5.99 for a little extra Don Lemon in their lives. 100,000 subscribers is so low it's almost unfathomable when you consider that even CNN's struggling morning show managed to attract a weekly average of 446,000 viewers in April. Fox News' FOX & Friends was watched by an average of 1.4 million viewers. 100,000 subscribers is so bizarrely meager that you can understand why the new management at CNN (Warner Bros. Discovery) thought there was no better way to end this modern media Hindenburg than to simply cut...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) compared Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) partying in Florida to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) getting her hair done in a salon in 2020 and stated that “they have their own set of rules for themselves as long as the plebes follow what their rules are.” Donalds said, “Look, at the end of the day, people just want to live free and they want to live their lives. They don’t want to be told what to do. They especially don’t want hypocrites to tell them what to do by basically telling them one thing about masking up and doing all this stuff, but then when you catch them on somebody else’s camera phone, you see they’re just out living life and you’re being told that you can’t. That’s what’s wrong in our politics today. This is what the Democrats have gotten wrong with the pandemic the entire time. Instead of helping people live their lives, they’ve gone to this reflexive lockdown policy, time after time...
    Real Time host Bill Maher slammed the 'level of hate' Americans have for each other, saying he believes in a 'colorblind' society and criticized the idea of secession. Maher pulled a quote from Pennsylvania Republican representative Scott Perry who told people to 'go fight' Democrats, who he claimed are the 'opposite of everything you believe in.' He was referring to the Build Back Better infrastructure bill in Congress and the political divide.   'I read this not because it's remarkable, but it's typical,' the liberal Real Time host said regarding Perry's quote on Friday's show. 'This is the rhetoric - we never used to do this in America. Yes, the parties were at each other's throats, but they never said they're the opposition of everything you love and believe in.'  Maher, 65, suggested the long-term strategy was to stop the hate. 'We have to stop this level of hate,' he said, and questioned: 'Why do they [Republicans] hate us [Democrats]?'   Second panelist and Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, 61, blamed former President Donald Trump for creating a divide that taught that the 'reason why...
    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that the border is an issue Democrats “don’t really address, they don’t seem to really have a plan for it, and always is their Achilles’ heel come election time.” Maher stated, “So, every few months, we read the same story about this crisis at the border here in America, our southern border. And a couple of weeks ago, we all saw the picture of that trooper, or whatever he was…whipping somebody. We know that’s not what we should be doing. What should we be doing on the border? Not that. What should we be doing, though? Because I mean, the stats in July, 200,000 people, this is the biggest number of people to show up at the border in 21 years. And three in ten of them, for the first time, a number that high, were not from Mexico or Guatemala, Honduras, or El Salvador. They’re from all over the world. The people getting whipped were Haitians. What do we do about the border? I feel like this is...
    FOR most people, getting out of doing chores was almost impossible. Well, this mom revealed they give their children the choice to say no when they don't want to do a chore – however, they admitted that they must have a reason why and better do them later. 3Tori Phantom explained that they let their kids decide when they want to do their chores 3They said it teaches them time management and responsabilites Mom Tori Phantom – who goes by the pronouns they and them – said in a video as they did their makeup on camera: "My kids are allowed to tell me no, they have a voice and I want to hear it. "I want them to make decisions. So they are allowed to say no, but there are rules and guidelines. Most importantly, they have to be polite. "If they've politely declined, they better be ready to explain themselves and plead their case. "This encourages conversation or development of critical thinking skills and communication." They then explained how they had asked their daughter earlier to clean...
    A woman who has lived in the UK for 15 years has criticised British people for their attitudes to children, claiming they're 'treated as an invconvenience' by their parents and strangers alike.   The unnamed 'foreign person' shared her opinion on the British parenting forum Mumsnet, claiming people in the UK don't coo over children in public, but make no secret of their disapproval if they misbehave.   She asked if it's a hangover from the Victorian era, to expect them to always be well behaved and 'do as they're told'.  Other critcisms included low breastfeeding rates, lack of affordable childcare and fewer options such as holiday camps and clubs.   While some parents agreed, others said it was a matter of not wanting children to misbehave in public, rather than not liking them.  One foreign resident in the UK sparked a debate when they claimed on Mumsnet that the UK was not child-friendly (stock image) The parent said they felt the UK didn't let children be children and were expecting them to always do as they were told ...
    As for coping, we have the Four of Swords. Often seen as a rest card, it also can mean removing your ego from the situation.Adobe Dear Oracle, I have been working for a small company for the past year or so, and I feel that I have grown too big for my britches. I finish my work quickly, take on other projects, and show initiative when given a challenge. That being said, because I don’t fall in line with the corporate culture, I am often targeted by my boss as an outlier that causes drama or is not working hard enough. It feels like all eyes are on me so much of the time, but not in a way that is nurturing my career.

    First time sex with anyone you like can be nerve wracking – but imagine what it's like to sleep with someone who has sex for a living? I've met lots of people who work in the sex industry as part of my job and know they are no different to you or me generally. But I've never slept with any. Which got me thinking…what's it really like having sex with someone who is the consummate professional? Are porn stars as good in bed as we all imagine? What's it like sharing a partner sexually? On the flipside, what happens when people who work in the sex industry tell prospective partners, 'Hey, guess what I do for a living?' Do most people run…or look aroused? And what happens when love sneaks into the equation as well? Truth is, you need the same things you need in any good relationship to make something like this work – but in bucketloads. Exemplary communication skills, oceans of trust and a tremendous respect of boundaries. These types of relationships only work with people who are secure...
    Key facts: Bitcoin is invaluable, beyond its market price. In the long run, it seems safe to say that bitcoin is always going up. The first time I learned about bitcoin (BTC), like the vast majority, it was because the price began to make its way into public opinion. That magic internet coin was gaining ground beyond the “weird” people who lived on the computer, watching codes and arguing in forums with strangers from all over the world. That money was “for them,” so it seemed to me at first. It caught my attention that, if you bought today, in a few days or weeks it would become more. So, magically. It was said by the media and a few enthusiasts, of whom I knew one who was deeply involved in “that world.” It didn’t seem like a bad idea to put a little that wonderful thing that was “making people rich”. But I did not. And I don’t regret it for a second. First, because surely it would have sold in a short time. That same 2017,...
    FROM obscurity to bona fide national treasure, it’s been one hell of a rise to the top for Nadiya Hussain. In the six years since her Great British Bake Off triumph, the 36-year-old mum of three has enjoyed a string of bestselling cookbooks and hit TV shows, been awarded an MBE and even baked the Queen’s 90th-birthday cake. 8Battling racism has left me in tears, I have to work 10 times harder than my peers, says Nadiya HussainCredit: Mark Hayman 8Nadiya rose to fame after winning the sixth series of The Great British Bake Off in 2015Credit: Getty Images But ask her the secret to her staggering success, and she’s momentarily flummoxed. “I struggle to say why… Is that a female thing?

There are no airs and graces – I am who I am. I don’t pretend...

    (CNN)An extraordinary heat wave is taking shape this weekend, potentially unlike any other the Northwest US has experienced. As temperatures surge into the triple digits, Seattle could feel more like Las Vegas, while Portland could experience Phoenix-level warmth in an area where having air conditioning isn't always the norm. Dozens of heat records -- including some all-time records set decades ago -- are forecast to fall in Oregon, Washington and Idaho, all in the first week of summer."Usually, the hottest time of the year [in Washington] lags a month after the solstice," Rocco Pelatti, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Spokane, told CNN Weather. "July is usually the hottest month; sometimes, it bleeds into August. To have June start out like it has is very concerning."The heat will rise toward uncharted territory in Seattle and Portland. By late weekend, high temperatures could be 25 to 30 degrees above what's normal for this time of year. Seattle's average high in late June is 72 degrees, while Portland typically enjoys 75-degree afternoons this time of year. Forecast models suggest high...

    Famous people can afford to be parents earlier than most people. Raymond Hall/Getty Images/Pierre Suu/GC Images I want to be a mom, but I know I'm ill-prepared right now. Meanwhile, more and more celebrities under 25 are becoming parents. They can afford to care for their kids without sacrificing the freedom of their youth — unlike me. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. There are many things I want to do in my life: write a book, travel to Australia, live somewhere without a roommate. Above all else, though, I want to be a mom. I have a feeling that raising a child will be the thrill of my lifetime — but I'm nowhere near ready for that step. At 26, I rent a small apartment in New York with a roommate, am in a relationship but am not married, and just got booted off of my parent's health insurance. I'd never had a full-time job with benefits until 2020. But I think if I were an A-list celebrity, I would have a baby by now.  Over...
    I get it. The media have a job to do. And for the first time in four years, the government doesn’t have a cabinet-level Department of Gaslighting. But this is a question this reporter already knows the answer to, right?  Right? I believe this is AP White House correspondent Zeke Miller, but he’s wearing a mask, so I don’t know for sure.

    “When I turned 50, I made a decision to only act in things that I thought were meaningful,” Jodie Foster tells me. In the eight years since, she’s appeared in a grand total of three films: the dystopian action sagas Elysium and Hotel Artemis, addressing class-warfare and the health-care crisis, and The Mauritanian, which dramatizes the real-life story of Mohamedou Ould Salahi, who was imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay from 2002 to 2016 despite never being charged with a crime. During his time in Guantanamo, Salahi alleges he was subjected to a wide array of torture techniques, including beatings, sleep deprivation, waterboarding, sexual abuse, and a mock execution at sea. He documented his time there in the best-selling memoir Guantánamo Diary, released in 2015 as he was still being detained without cause. Directed by Kevin Macdonald and hitting virtual cinemas on Feb. 12, The Mauritanian boasts a stunning turn by Tahar Rahim as Salahi, and Foster’s best performance in more than a decade as Nancy Hollander, the defense attorney fighting on his behalf. (They both earned Golden Globe nominations on...
    This year, skip the Super Bowl parties. That’s the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci, who warned of possible COVID-19 superspreader events if people get together for Sunday’s Super Bowl 2021 game between the Chiefs and Buccaneers. “You don’t want parties with people that you haven’t had much contact with,” Fauci said during an appearance on “Good Morning America” Wednesday. “You just don’t know if they’re infected. So as difficult as that is, at least this time around, just lay low and cool it.” Dr. Anthony Fauci says people should not have watch parties for Super Bowl 2021. Composite: Getty Images The nation’s top infectious disease expert said watch parties could be dangerous, as members of different households come together while the COVID-19 pandemic surges in parts of the country, with new variants even more contagious than the initial virus. Fauci likened the Super Bowl to other significant events, like Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and added “now is not the time” for parties. “Every time we do have something like this, there always is a spike,” Fauci said on the...

    Russell Westbrook, who was traded to his second team in two seasons, said Saturday he had no plans of changing his ultra-competitiveness as he looks to help the Washington Wizards to the playoffs. Westbrook spoke to the media for the first time since being traded and was asked about the fire and fury he takes onto the court with him. JOHN WALL REFLECTS ON TIME WITH WIZARDS AFTER TRADE TO ROCKETS “The way I play the game kind of misconstrues people of who I am as a person, who I am and what I believe in and what I stand for,” the talented guard said, according to ESPN. “Obviously, how I play and off the floor are two different people. When I am on the floor, I don't have any friends, I am not trying to be friendly, I'm trying to bust somebody's a--. I ain't got time to try to shake hands and do all that. I don't have time for it, and I am never changing that.” While his career is in its twilight, Westbrook addressed his legacy...
    CHICAGO — Please don’t celebrate Thanksgiving with people outside your household, officials said in a last-minute plea to all Chicagoans Wednesday. Dr. Allison Arwady, head of the Chicago Department of Public Health, and Mayor Lori Lightfoot warned Chicago — and the rest of the United States — could see a deadly surge in cases if people don’t practice social distancing over the holiday. The city is already in the grips of a second wave of the disease, which is killing about 100 Chicagoans per week. “It’s better to have a Zoom Thanksgiving than an ICU Christmas,” Arwady said at a Wednesday news conference. “It’s true. And I want you to think about that as you’re making your decisions not just for Thanksgiving, but for Black Friday” and afterward. The city’s leaders and state officials, like Gov. JB Pritzker Dr. Ngozi Ezike, director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, have made similar pleas for weeks. They fear Thanksgiving dinners could turn into superspreader events that will result in many more people becoming sick and dying. About 40 percent of people...
    The Thanksgiving table at Dr. Anthony Fauci’s home is going to feel a lot emptier this year, with his three adult children skipping the trip to Washington D.C. for the holiday. For UCSF’s Dr. Peter Chin-Hong, it will be a Zoom holiday, with extended family dining together while apart. Dr. George Rutherford, also of UCSF, is inviting the kids to make brief “cameo appearances” — and plans to order food online for delivery, dodging germs in the cranberry aisle. Welcome to The Great Thanksgiving Opt-Out. Enlisting strategies unimaginable to the Pilgrims, the nation’s public health experts are reinventing the quintessential American holiday. “What we don’t want is five generations of people at some big table, with everybody bumping elbows and passing food to each other,” said Rutherford, a UCSF epidemiologist. “If somebody’s sick, they could spread it around to Grandma and Grandpa and whoever else is there.” Here are five things to know about the holiday: People are forgoing travel Flight searches for the week of Thanksgiving are down nearly 60%, according to Kayak, an online travel search company.

    2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had another gaffe on Sunday when he said an estimated 200 million people have already died from the coronavirus, even though the number of American casualties is closer to 200,000. "If Donald Trump has his way, the complications from COVID-19, which are well beyond what they should be -- it's estimated that 200 million people have died -- probably by the time I finish this talk," he said during a campaign speech. The U.S. population is estimated to be slightly 328 million people, meaning nearly two-thirds of the nation would have perished from the disease by now if Biden's verbal screw-up was true. JOE BIDEN ASSURES VOTERS HE'S 'NOT GOING NUTS' DURING CAMPAIGN STOP This isn't the first time Biden has mixed up his math and made head-scratching remarks about the coronavirus mortality rate. Back in June, Biden wrongly claimed 120 million people had died as a result of COVID-19, during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania. “People don’t have a job, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do,” he said. “Now we have over 120 million...
    It's not always easy to learn local customs as a traveller and for some unlucky jet-setters, attempts at politeness can land them in hot water with the locals. While it would be considered a lovely gesture to pay the bill for everyone in the UK or the US, it's seen as the height of rudeness in Russia and Austria, which Australian traveller Sarah Ryan discovered.  After accidentally committing a 'cultural no-no' traveller she took to Facebook to consult the members of Girls LOVE Travel over the cultural differences they have encountered, and was met with over a thousand responses.

    It is, allegedly, the last time we will see Richard Nelson’s Apple family during the pandemic. How are the liberal, white, arty, upstate-dwelling American upper-middle classes feeling as lockdown eases and the election approaches? The last of a trio of plays, Incidental Moments of the Day suggests the answer is, as confined and confused as the rest of us. Here again, discussing, needling, laughing, and consoling are siblings Barbara (Maryann Plunkett), Richard (Jay O. Saunders), and Jane (Sally Murphy), with Marian (Laila Robins) mostly absent out on a date, and Jane’s partner Tim (Stephen Kunken), an actor turned restaurant manager, away with his college-going kids in Amherst. They connect, as they have in the two preceding plays in the cycle, via Zoom—their faces full of the flitting emotions of the time: confusion, questioning, sadness, attempts at levity, searching for meaning and answers, a belief in art. (Nelson encourages donations to the Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation in the U.S. and the Theatre Artists Fund in the U.K.) The naturalism of the exchanges is beguiling; the family stuff, the...

    The pandemic has made it difficult for many people to safely have sex with those who don't live in their homes, and the lack of intimacy can have unexpected consequences.  Experts told Insider months without wanted physical touch can have adverse health impacts like increased anxiety, depression, and trouble sleeping. Lack of physical intimacy can also lead to touch starvation, which can contribute to loneliness, isolation, and even compromise your immune system.  Sex can also be an important way to find a sense of community for people in marginalized groups like LGBTQ folks, polyamorous people, and kink communities. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. For people who do not live with a partner, lockdown has, in theory, meant three months of celibacy.  Going so long without sex or intimate touch can be more than just frustrating.  Three sex therapists and psychologists explained to Insider exactly what kind of ramifications they see in people who don't experience sexual contact for a long period of time, from heightened anxiety to sleeplessness. Orgasms can have a number of health benefits including anxiety relief,...
