    I NEED to make a declaration: I am the supremely proud owner of two tiny, tiny breasts. They are somewhere between a couple of paracetamols on an ironing board and two cute cinnamon buns. 6Florence Pugh knew her nipple-baring dress would cause a ruckusCredit: Getty 6My own breasts have had quite the journey over the yearsCredit: Rex Features For that reason, I’d like a round of applause for actress Florence Pugh. She had the gumption and intelligence to attend a fancy-schmancy do in Rome last week wearing a sheer designer dress — exposing her gorgeous, itsy-bitsy, ­teensy-weensy but perfectly shaped cupcakes. She isn’t stupid, our Flo. She knew the nipple-baring garment was going to cause a ruckus. And it sure did. Exposing her petite breasts through the translucent fabric, she found herself in the midst of a storm in an A-cup. Before you could say “knockers”, Florence found herself on the receiving end of a barrage of criticism — and a bevy of disparaging comments.

    A girl's injuries from impaling herself on a toy were so 'unbelievable' doctors thought she was a victim of child abuse. The unidentified three-year-old, from Germany, slipped while jumping about on the sofa and landed on the leg of an upturned miniature ironing board — which went up her backside. It went 7.8in (20cm) inside of her and her shocked parents pulled it out, causing her to start gushing with blood. After taking an ambulance to hospital, she was rushed to an emergency department where doctors could not believe her parents' story. They brought along the toy, which was bloody and had a small amount of 'tissue' on it. She was suffering severe stomach pains but had stopped bleeding.  Child services were called because of how implausible her injuries were — but other than the damage to her anus, there was nothing else to suggest that her parents had been abusive.  Doctors in Stuttgart suspected the rod had ruptured her bowel — but nothing major cropped up in an ultrasound. A girl's injuries from impaling herself on a toy were so...
    Both Brown and Smith's comments were later removed for being "discriminatory," "hateful," and "offensive." The company then launched an investigation into the employees, which eventually resulted in their termination. According to court documents, Alaska Airlines told the flight attendants: "Defining gender identity or sexual orientation as a moral issue, or questioning the Company’s support for the rights of all people regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation, is not a philosophical question, but a discriminatory statement. Your posting was offensive, discriminatory, and did not align with Alaska Airline’s values." Following their termination, the two reported charges to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and have since been granted "right-to-sue" letters by the department. In the lawsuit, the women also claim that the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) did little to defend them despite its stated duties to help members being discriminated against on the basis of religion. "Alaska Airlines 'canceled' Lacey and Marli because of their religious beliefs, flagrantly disregarding federal civil rights laws that protect people of faith from discrimination," said Stephanie Taub, Senior Counsel for First Liberty Institute,...
    In this article TSLA TWTR Ron BaronCameron Costa | CNBCRon Baron, one of Tesla's largest shareholders and CEO of Baron Capital, suggested Thursday that Musk got a good deal on his Twitter acquisition, after earlier calling the Tesla CEO's involvement in the company "meaningless." In a statement to CNBC's Becky Quick, Baron said that, after doing two days worth of initial diligence, he felt the plan was interesting. "My guess 2-3x return or more next 4-5 years if successful," Baron told Quick. "Purchase price really cheap since business had been so poorly run. Actually incredibly cheap and would have remained that way if Musk had not offered to acquire. In my opinion."  The comment comes as a new regulatory filing released Thursday showed that Baron Capital subsidiary BAMCO committed $100 million in equity to support Musk's takeover. Musk secured more than $7 billion in total from a group of investors including BAMCO to support his $44 billion purchase of Twitter, which he plans to take private. The Baron Capital CEO had earlier shrugged off the importance of Musk's initial...

    Elon Musk is talking with potential partners about joining him in a bid to wrestle control of Twitter, after the board poured cold water on his $43 billion offer and instead opted to take 'a poison pill'. Musk, 50, told the board on Wednesday he wanted to buy the social media company, in which he has a 9.1 percent share. On Thursday, the CEO, Parag Agrawal, told staff that they were still weighing up Musk's offer. But on Friday, Twitter's board announced the dramatic 'poison pill plan' to prevent Musk from increasing his stake in the company further. Also known as a shareholder rights provision, the plan announced on Friday would trigger a dilution of company shares if any shareholder builds up a 15 percent stake without the board's approval. The plan does not prevent Twitter from accepting Musk's offer or entering negotiations with him or other potential buyers - but it will stop the billionaire from putting pressure on the board by buying up ever more shares on the open market. Musk, in response, is now recruiting others to join...
    A Texas school superintendent is on an administrative leave after being accused by his mistress of trying to force her to abort their baby and then assaulting her when she refused, prompting the woman to obtain a protective order against him. The scandal in the Round Rock Independent School District has been brewing for months, and it has since come to encompass allegations of a coverup by a former school board president and the silencing of the board's critics. Two fathers from Round Rock were arrested last year after bringing up allegations of misconduct against Superintendent Hafedh Azaiez during public school board meetings.   An independent investigation into Azaiez's conduct had been launched last month, but the final report is still pending and will not be released until next month following a 5-2 vote by the school board to extend the deadline. Round Rock Independent School Superintendent Hafedh Azaiez is on a paid administrative leave after being accused of trying to get his mistress to abort their baby and then assaulting her last year Round Rock father Jeremy Strong is pictured being...
    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch emergency services say an evacuation is underway of 18 crew on board a damaged ship off the North Sea coast. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, written or redistributed.
    "Masks are not healthy for most people. Just the bacteria that grows in them is causing more issues than any issues masks would prevent," Nicole Konz claimed in a Facebook post last February. On Nov. 2, she was elected to the school board of Academy District 20, near Colorado Springs, a district serving more than 23,000 students. It wasn't an accident. There was a lot of money and power behind her. And Konz wasn't alone. The district's other new board member was Aaron Salt, already the board chair of a nearby charter academy, who said after his election, "We know that mask usage increases mental health problems and issues. ... That's not something that I'm willing to sacrifice." They were just two of 28 school board candidates elected across Colorado with the backing of a Christian nationalist organization — the Truth and Liberty Coalition (TLC) — whose ambitions are "national, international and eternal," as Frederick Clarkson wrote at Religion Dispatches. Pandemic restrictions and the moral panic over "critical race theory" are the most recent hot-button recruiting tools integrated...
    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer wrote a letter to the Capitol Police Board Tuesday asking that lawmakers be briefed on the rules for carrying a firearm on Capitol Hill.  'I have heard from a number of Members and staff who are greatly concerned about the lack of clarity about rules that permit Members of Congress to carry personal firearms in their offices,' Hoyer wrote.  He said that the 'presence of deadly firearms only raises the dangers of a violent incident, an accidental discharge, or some other preventable tragedy.'  House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer wrote a letter to the Capitol Police Board Tuesday asking that lawmakers be briefed on the rules for carrying a firearm on Capitol Hill Metal detectors were installed outside the House chamber after the January 6 Capitol attack, prompting complaints from some Republican lawmakers  'No matter who possesses these weapons and how well trained they are in their safe personal use, their very presence in these spaces makes them less safe to all, especially to the U.S. Capitol Police officers who are already under enormous pressure to protect...
    A Delta flight from Washington DC to Los Angeles was diverted on Thursday evening after a passenger attacked a flight attendant, and then turned on an air marshal. Flight DL342 took off from Reagan National Airport at 5:16pm local time, but a mid-air altercation broke out. The plane had to be diverted to Oklahoma City, and the male suspect aged in his 30s was taken off the plane in handcuffs, CBS reported. The flight then continued to Los Angeles, where it was scheduled to land at 10:17pm Pacific Time - two hours late.  Delta flight DL342 took off from Washington DC at 5:16pm local time on Thursday, bound for Los Angeles The plane was forced to make an unscheduled emergency landing in Oklahoma City after a man in his 30s on board the plane attacked a flight attendant and an air marshal Bayne Bunce, 59, told Axios that he was on the plane and answered a call to assist federal air marshals. He said he saw a man trying to 'get at' a flight attendant.  Captain Arthur Gregory with Oklahoma...
    Hero pilots flew an 'out of control' plane over Siberia for five hours when the aircraft plunged into a sudden dive after taking off with 200 passengers onboard.  The S7 plane ran into trouble - the autopilot system disconnected, there was an onboard electronics failure and the fuselage was covered in ice - five minutes after taking off from Magdan airport in eastern Russia.  The captain made a Mayday call but the pilots were unable to offload fuel and land in the departure airport, despite circling overhead several times.  Instead, they were forced to fly on over mountain ranges, towards the next nearest airport Yakutsk before finally landing in Irkutsk five and half hours later.   The plane was impounded on arrival and police are probing whether faulty or deliberately botched de-icer spray was used on the fuselage ahead of take off.  Passengers, among them 25 children, reportedly applauded the pilots after they safely landed the plane in Irkutsk. They were offered drinks, food and onward flights.  Hero pilots flew this 'out of control' plane over Siberia for five hours after...
    In the carnival of avarice and corruption that is Los Angeles, we are not resting on our laurels. Second stringers settle for bronze or silver; champions go for gold. I had not planned to write about the L.A. Department of Water and Power today, which has popped back into the news thanks to a plea deal in a bribery and kickback case that goes all the way to the top of DWP management. I was busy with other things. Namely, I was digging into city records indicating that 18 members of the Los Angeles Fire Department each cleared more than $500,000 between January and September this year, counting overtime and benefits. Quite a haul, with Christmas still to come. But then I got distracted by the head-slapping story by Times scribes Kevin Rector and Richard Winton about the manager of a Los Angeles Police Academy gun shop accused of stealing guns from the shop and selling them to, among others, cops. Yes indeed. And thanks in part to an apparent lack of oversight by the LAPD, now the...
    President Joe Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm is the subject of an ethics complaint for promoting, in her role as a member of the executive branch, an electric bus company she sat on the board of and held millions of dollars of stock in. Granholm — who oversees moving the country toward an electric vehicle transportation system and enjoys newfound powers after the passage of Biden’s infrastructure package — is facing scrutiny for promoting Proterra, a Burlingame, California-based electric bus company she sat on the board of and held 240,520 shares of stock in, which garnered her $1.6 million when she finally divested them 157 days after her nomination. Granholm has been criticized for promoting Proterra in her official capacity as energy secretary and for hyping grant access to companies with connections to Proterra. These critics argue that Granholm’s promotion of the company, which as of Monday had a market cap of $2.6 billion, has increased Proterra’s visibility and thereby potentially increased the value of Granholm’s stock in the company before she was required by ethics rules to sell her shares on May 24....
    Parents are banding together in Loudoun County, Virginia, demanding resignations from Superintendent Scott Ziegler and the entire school board over accusations it covered up a sexual assault report, which took place in May.  Loudoun County parents Dimis Christophy and Cheryl Onderchain joined "Fox & Friends First" on Wednesday to discuss the outrage after an explosive school board meeting Tuesday night, and a walkout dozens of students participated in earlier in the day over recent sexual assault reports.  LOUDOUN COUNTY PARENTS DEMAND SUPERINTENDENT, SCHOOL BOARD RESIGN AFTER ALLEGED SEXUAL ASSAULT EMAIL "I've had kids in Loudoun County Public Schools for over 14 years," Onderchain explained. "I've never seen any display of anger and outrage and just disappointment as what was evidenced in all the comments that were made towards the board last night."  "There were 120 folks signed up to speak in person," Onderchain said.  An email surfaced last week indicating Ziegler was aware of the alleged sexual assault and alerted the school board a month before he claimed he did not have knowledge of the reported crime.  October 26,...
    After months of rumors about his 19th season on NCIS, Mark Harmon's exit as Leroy Jethro Gibbs was confirmed on Monday night's episode Great Wide Open. There had previously been reports that the 70-year-old actor will only appear in a few episodes this season, with his exit cemented in the episode. Still, it's possible that we haven't seen the last of Gibbs, but he most certainly won't be a weekly presence on the show as he has been for the past 18 seasons. Exit: After months of rumors about his 19th season on NCIS, Mark Harmon's exit as Leroy Jethro Gibbs was confirmed on Monday night's episode Great Wide Open Reports: There had previously been reports that the 70-year-old actor will only appear in a few episodes this season, with his exit cemented in the episode The episode followed Gibbs solving a case of a conglomerate CEO hiring a contract killer to take out those opposed to a copper mine.

    New York (CNN Business)Editor's note: A previous version of this story misrepresented data about Latinos in the workforce. The study surveyed all public companies listed on the Nasdaq and NYSE. It incorrectly compared them to separate data sets of gains made by other groups represented in significantly smaller collections of companies, including the S&P 500. This story has been corrected. The number of African Americans serving on boards of directors for the nation's largest corporations has remained dismally low this year despite the ongoing movement to increase C-suite diversity throughout the business world.Some of America's most prominent companies are addressing the problem by backing the Black Boardroom Initiative, a new program unveiled Wednesday with a goal of increasing the ratio of Black executives sitting on S&P 500 corporate boards to one in eight by 2028.Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT), Starbucks (SBUX) and Zillow (Z) are among the major brands sponsoring the initiative, which has been spearheaded by the law firm Perkins Coie with support from Deloitte, a multinational professional services network.The Black Boardroom Initiative is also working to identify candidates to...
    Anti-mask crowd fills a Michigan school board meeting. Across the country, school boards—and school board members—have found themselves at the center of a firestorm. In a matter of months, meetings that would ordinarily have been sparsely attended have become full to overflowing. Boards that in a normal year might spend nights balancing the need to replace tattered textbooks against an always-too-tight budget have found themselves being screamed at over protests around a “critical race theory” that seemed to change definitions from one outraged speaker to the next. Even more, they’ve found themselves threatened, in every sense of that word, over efforts to simply do their best to protect the children placed in their care. There are two simple steps that schools can take to protect both students and staff against a virus that is still burning through communities across the nation: requiring that everyone wear masks, and requiring both staff and older students to be vaccinated. Those actions provide the very minimum level of discomfort while providing the best chance to not just keep children safe, but keep schools operating. Since governors and legislators in multiple...
    Facebook is in talkes to form an independent election commission comprised of experts to help it decide how to run political adverts and stamp out fake news ahead of the 2022 midterms.   The proposed commission would help Facebook navigate the qualms of today's political ads and what to do about election-related misinformation, after years of the social media giant facing scrutiny over its handling of such matters, The New York Times reported.  Facebook is expected to officially announce the commission this fall in preparation for the 2022 U.S. midterm elections, but sources said the plan was still in its infancy and could fall apart before then.  Facebook did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com's request for comment.  The social media giant is reportedly looking to implement an election commission to help advice the handling of political ads and election-related fake news Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has had to repeatedly testify at Capitol Hill over his company's decision making process.

    Cruise lines are eager to set sail after taking a big hit from the pandemic. Gary D Ercole/Getty Images Carnival cruise line said bookings were up 45% for the second quarter. Cruising in the time of COVID-19 means tests, temperature checks, and extremely pre- scheduled fun. But for cruise lines that took a hit during the pandemic, the extra health precautions are worth it. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Carnival cruise line said bookings were up 45% for the second quarter in a company update on Thursday as it prepares to launch its first series of post-pandemic cruises next month.  But doubts remain on whether cruises are equipped to handle COVID-19 cases on board, especially after two passengers tested positive for COVID-19 aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise from the Bahamas Thursday. The two cases that tested positive were both unvaccinated travelers under the age of 16. According to the ship — dubbed Adventures of the Seas — 92% of crew and passengers were vaccinated.  Additionally, earlier this month, two cases were reported on an MSC Cruises...
    The controversial 'vigilante police and journalism' app Citizen has come under fire from users again, this time blasting a 'plane crash' at LAX, claiming an unattended airbus had crashed into a terminal, when it was a training drill that the airport had warned the public of ahead of time.     The app boasts that it uploads real-time photos and videos from the scene of crimes or emergencies that have been taken by its users and shared without verification. It also offers 'digital bodyguard' protections and last month piloted its own private security force. But in many cases, what is reported is unverified information that people have heard on police scanners or seen for themselves in the street. There is often no confirmation of the details from the emergency services and in many cases, what's reported is far from what is actually going on.   This was the case on Saturday when someone from Citizen, plugged into the LAFD scanner, heard a worrying report of an unattended airbus that had crashed into a terminal at the airport, with no sign of the...

    House Democrats have a new strategy as they push for an independent bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Homeland Security Committee Chair Bennie Thompson and Rep. John Katko, the ranking Republican on that committee, are negotiating directly in an attempt to bring a bill creating a commission to a full House vote as early as next week. Democrats have been pushing for months for an investigation modeled on the bipartisan 9/11 commission, but the effort has been blocked by Republicans. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already bowed to some Republican demands, such as agreeing to an even number of Democratic and Republican appointees on the panel and subpoena power through either the joint decision of the Democratic chair and Republican vice chair or by a majority vote of the panel, rather than subpoena power resting solely in the hands of the chair. But Republicans continue to push for a commission that investigates not only the Capitol insurrection but other topics intended to distract from Donald Trump’s responsibility for Jan. 6. In essence, they want a commission that looks past...

    Scientists have discovered an unknown bacterium aboard the International Space Station. It is not an alien bacteria The International space station (ISS), which is located 400 km from Earth, has been under constant surveillance for six years to detect the possible presence of microbes or bacteria. As part of an experiment, biological samples were taken in several areas of theISS in 2015 and 2016. Scientists then detected the presence of an unknown bacterium among the 10,000 bacterial species recorded so far on Earth. But this is not a bacterium extraterrestrial. > The International Space Station photographs Reunion Island from space Explanations Scientists say it is possible that bacterium close to that discovered on board the station was transported by means of an astronaut. Then the bacteria, which would have undergone transformations in the specific environment of the station which moves at 28,000 km / h, became resistant. Scientists are particularly interested in this unknown bacteria because it seems to help plants to grow. According to them, it can then be exploited to protect plants from disease. > See our...
    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has fired back at New York Governor Andrew Cuomo following revelations in an article by The New Yorker that detailed how the governor had a dart board made up with de Blasio's face on it. During Friday's Covid-19 briefing, a reporter from CNN asked the mayor about the dartboard allegation, contained in the piece by Ronan Farrow, which is said to exist at the governor's mansion.  Lindsey Boylan, the first woman to accuse Cuomo of sexual harassment back in December, told the magazine she spotted the childish game in the pool house at the governor's mansion in Albany.  'I couldn't believe how brazen that was,' Boylan, who worked for Cuomo's team from March 2015 to October 2018, recalled.   Mayor Bill de Blasio was asked how he felt that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo allegedly putting his face on a dart board at his home.

    The UN experts have just decided: the arms embargo imposed on Libya is “totally ineffective”. But the EU is hailed as the only “positive” actor committed to ensuring respect for it, for a year, with its military operation Irini. VShe is a drop of water, certainly welcome, in the ocean of hardships which overwhelms the Libyan people. Despite the efforts of the EU military operation conducted in the Mediterranean for a year under the code name Irini, arms continue to flow into the country from all sides, fueling a climate of extreme violence. Libya has been in the throes of civil war since the fall of Gaddafi ten years ago, even if a ceasefire brings a glimmer of hope. The UN Security Council imposed an arms embargo on Libya in 2011, when regime troops threatened to quell the ongoing popular uprising, one of the avatars of the “Arab Spring”. This ban obliges all countries to prevent the direct or indirect supply of arms to Libya. Alas, the UN group of experts on Libya concluded...
    The Superior Court of Justice of Madrid (TSJM) will decide this Sunday if there is an electoral advance in the Community of Madrid on May 4, having not yet agreed on a position on the appeal presented by the lawyers of the Assembly Table against the decree calling for elections.

    MISSING flight MH370 spiralled into the sea in an uncontrolled "ghost dive", analysis of a piece of jet debris suggests. Experts say part of a wing spoiler was ripped off - countering a past theory that the plane glided to the surface in a controlled ditching. 12The Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 seen on an earlier flight a month before it vanishedCredit: Reuters 12Captain Zaharie Shah was 'depressed', according to a friendCredit: Enterprise News and Pictures Fresh evidence emerged exactly seven years after the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 vanished with 239 people on board, sparking the world's greatest aviation mystery.
