    The ex-wife of an Egyptian man on trial for the murder of their two daughters for dating American boys called him the devil as she alleged 15 years of abuse under him.  When prosecutors asked Patricia Owens to identify ex-husband Yaser Said, 65, in court on Thursday, she pointed at the man accused of killing her two daughters, 17-year-old Sarah and 18-year-old Amina, NBC 5 reported.   'That devil there,' she said as she testified about years of abuse she and her two daughters allegedly suffered at the hands of Said.  The Egyptian-born cab driver, who lived with his family just north of Dallas, allegedly shot and killed his daughters in his taxi after telling them they were going out to eat on New Year's Day in 2008. It is widely speculated Said committed an honor killing - a practice where individuals are murdered for bringing perceived shame on their family - after he discovered the girls had non-Muslim boyfriends and thought they were becoming 'too American.'  Patricia Owens (pictured) called her ex-husband, Yaser Said, 'that devil' during the murder trial...

    The shocking decline of two happy, pre-teen girls after they became obsessed with their weight and calorie intake is laid bare today in new photographs as their mothers sue Instagram, claiming the app drove them to starve themselves and, in one case, attempt suicide.  Kentucky mothers Candace Wuest and Alexandra Martin are suing Instagram's parent company Meta in separate lawsuits filed on Monday.  They claim the app targeted their daughters - and millions of other vulnerable girls - with calorie-restrictive recipes, photos of skeletal models and a fatal algorithm which pushed both to the top of the girls' feeds.  In Wuest's daughter's case, she tried to take her own life after writing in letters about the crippling societal pressure to be thin and beautiful.  Their cases are the latest in a growing number of damning examples that suggest how the app is harming young people's mental health, particularly that of impressionable teenage girls.  This 12-year-old girl from Kentucky, named in court documents as CN, became obsessed with calorie-restricting diets on Instagram. She lost a startling amount of weight in a...
    Sesame Street has been slammed as racist after video surfaced of a character actor seemingly ignoring two young black girls wanting to say hello. A mom, who goes by __jodiii__ on Instagram, said her daughters were 'blatantly told no' when they tried to confront Rosita, a bilingual Muppet character from Mexico, at the Sesame Place amusement park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday.

The video was met with outrage online, including from famed civil rights attorney Ben Crump who said the actor's 'disgusting behavior' was 'absolutely heartbreaking.'

    A mother-of-two is speaking out about the dangers of sunbeds after she was diagnosed with skin cancer from using the beds to top up her tan before girls holidays. Shannon Masterton, 29, from Derry, Northern Ireland, said she used the beds twice a week to get a better tan but she was diagnosed with melanoma in January 2020 and now she says they are not worth risking your life for.  One year, when she used the beds before a girls holiday to Benidorm, she noticed a change on her skin that looked like a freckle and it began to feel itchy while she was away.  The tanning fanatic said that the following year, before another holiday, she used beds again and noticed the same feeling on her leg which eventually became a burning sensation.

    Prosecutors in the US are under pressure to put other women suspected of sex trafficking for Jeffrey Epstein on trial after Maxwell’s conviction. After he committed suicide in jail in 2019, the authorities turned their attention to others named by his victims, starting with Maxwell. Now four women previously granted immunity from prosecution face an uncertain future. They are: Sarah Kellen If there was one person mentioned almost as much as Maxwell and Epstein during the trial, it was Sarah Kellen. She was their personal assistant and has been dubbed Epstein’s ‘lieutenant’ for allegedly recruiting and booking girls for ‘massages’. Carolyn, one of the victims, said that for the first year or two Maxwell called her to schedule massages for Epstein, which began when she was 14. After that it was Miss Kellen who called her.

    Jeffrey Epstein's assistant of 20 years who said she had a bond so tight with the pedophile 'that I know what he's thinking' will not face prosecution, lawyers have said after a civil case was dropped against her. Lesley Groff, 53, was generously compensated for working as Epstein's executive assistant in New York and is accused of being one of Ghislaine Maxwell's minions. As Maxwell faces the rest of her life behind bars, the focus has turned to the women who, according to lawsuits, court testimony and police reports, managed the teenage girls coming and going out of Epstein's houses, including collecting contact information, taking messages and arranging the girls' travel.  Groff was named along with three other female employees, Sarah Kellen, Nadia Marcinkova and Adriana Ross, as an unindicted co-conspirator in Epstein's infamous sweetheart deal in 2008 that saw him given a cushy sentence and avoid federal sex trafficking charges in exchange for pleading guilty to soliciting sex from a minor. But federal prosecutors in Manhattan have no plans to bring charges against Groff, her lawyers announced in a...

    One of Ghislaine Maxwell's accusers will give testimony detailing a 'repugnant' sexual act by Jeffrey Epstein at her sex trafficking trial later this month, after a judged ruled that she will be allowed to testify. The woman, identified as 'Minor Victim 3', is set to describe the 'morally reprehensible' encounter with the billionaire pedophile as evidence of his sexual preference for young women and underage girls.  However, Maxwell's lawyers accused prosecutors of making 'eleventh hour' changes to the case against their client after it emerged that two out of the four 'minor victims' set to testify were over the age of consent under local laws at the time.  The defense claims there's a danger that the jury may convict Maxwell based on a 'moral judgement of sexual activity which was entirely legal.'  Maxwell, 59, watched on as her lawyers sparred with prosecutors over how the testimony of the four victims should be presented to the jury in a final preparatory hearing on Tuesday. Her sister Isabel was sat in the public gallery.

    All 24 female senators from both parties came together on Thursday to ramp up pressure on President Biden to develop a plan for the dire situation that now faces Afghan women and girls.  The letter, led by Sens. Shelley Capito and Dianne Feinstein, says that 'American disengagement from Afghanistan puts at risk hard-won gains for Afghan women and girls.'  'Women and girls are now suffering the predations of a Taliban regime with a track record of brutalizing, isolating, and denying them life and liberty. Taliban leaders who promised that women would be treated well under the new government are not upholding those commitments,' the letter reads.  The senators note that women are now the victims of targeted beatings and are banned from leaving home without a male chaperone.  Where some 3.5 million girls were in school in Afghanistan last year thanks to the American-backed government led by Ashraf Ghani, the Taliban has indefinitely suspended secondary school for girls. The letter, led by Sens. Shelley Capito and Dianne Feinstein, says that 'American disengagement from Afghanistan puts at risk hard-won gains for...
    Hooters has reversed a policy for new skin-tight skimpy bottoms after backlash from waitresses who were furious about the 'tiny panties.'  The new derriere-baring hotpants were introduced this month by the infamous 'breastaurant', which has built a salacious reputation on ample-chested women serving diners in plunging t-shirts.  But viral posts by staff on social media had called the new shorts 'pornographic' with one waitress writing, 'Love my job but don't love wearing undies to work.'  In a statement to Business Insider, Hooters said: 'As we continue to listen and update the image of the Hooters Girls, we are clarifying that they have the option to choose from traditional uniforms or the new ones. 'They can determine which style of shorts best fits their body style and personal image.'   Controversy: Hooters has sparked fury among female staff members after introducing a tiny new uniform shorts (pictured) that some are calling 'pornographic' and comparing to 'panties' The originals: Many Hooters Girls have taken to TikTok to show off the 'revealing' new design, while comparing them to the old style - which covered their buttocks...

    Instagram is denying reports that the app is harmful to the mental health of young girls, despite the social media giant pausing the development of Instagram Kids just a few weeks after such incriminatory claims surfaced. The Wall Street Journal, citing a review of internal company documents that included research reports, online employee discussions and drafts of presentations to senior management, said that researchers at Instagram’s parent company Facebook have identified 'the platform's ill effects,' but failed to fix them. The most damaging and widely reported claim centered on a statistic showing Instagram made a third of teenage girls surveyed feel worse about their body image. Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, wrote in a Twitter post Monday that this will allow the company time to "work with parents, experts, policymakers and regulators, to listen to their concerns, and to demonstrate the value and importance of this project for younger teens online today." Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, appeared on an episode of the TODAY show this morning to address the Wall Street Journal's claims and the pause of...

    Doctors in Kentucky say it is nearly impossible to separate a pair of conjoined twins who share several organs including their liver. Twin girls Lakelyn and Laylie were born in Louisville on Sept. 1 at 32 weeks, weighing only 2lbs, 13oz each. Their parents, Charla and Logan Cook, were told last month that the girls likely wouldn't survive. On Monday, they were released from the NICU and sent home, where they will continue receiving medical care. 'They are doing very well, all things considered!' Charla told local TV station WLKY.  Lakelyn and Laylie share a liver, bowel, heart wall and a several other organs, which will make it nearly impossible to separate them.  However, after appointments at several hospital across the nation, the family found a team of doctors in Florida who are willing to try the procedure. But, due to an unexpected early delivery, it remains unknown if the surgery will actually happen.

    The media meltdown over a Texas law banning abortions after six weeks stretched into its second day with no end in sight Thursday, with analysts comparing the measure to slavery, terrorism, and the end times. The Texas Heartbeat Act, or SB 8, not only bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, but it gives individuals the right to sue abortion clinics or those who help women obtain abortions in the state. Groups challenged the constitutionality of SB 8, but the Supreme Court rejected an attempt to halt the measure. As a result, news networks spent much of Wednesday and Thursday morning predicting disaster for women. "The dark dystopian undertones of this just cannot be overstated," CNN's Alisyn Camerota commented Wednesday. CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin shared Camerota's doomsday predictions, saying Wednesday that it looked like the "sky is falling" after the law went into effect. "There are five justices…who seem like solid votes to overturn Roe v. Wade," Toobin said. "We've been accused, those of us saying that Roe is about to be overturned as being Chicken Little,...

    An official in the United Nations Children’s Fund on Tuesday said he was "optimistic" after some Taliban leaders expressed support for girls' education following the militant group's seizure of much of Afghanistan, including the capital of Kabul. Mustapha Ben Messaoud, UNICEF's chief of field operations in the embattled country, indicated that he visited with Taliban representatives in the conquered territories of Kandahar, Herat, and Jalalabad, among others. Messaoud said some Taliban leaders want schools "up and running," while others are awaiting guidance from higher-ups. "We have ongoing discussions. We are quite optimistic based on those discussions," the UNICEF boss said , adding that 11 of the country's 13 field offices, in which his organization provides aid, were operational.

    ‘The Powerpuff Girls’ have gone from being three to being two. The live action adaptation that The CW is trying to pull off has lost one of its protagonists, Chloe Bennet, who was going to give life to Petal. The ‘Agents of SHIELD’ actress has left the project according to Variety due to scheduling problems. It is a new blow to a series that seems cursed and doomed not to come true: The pilot that was recorded at the beginning of the year did not like the network, which forced to stop production to subject the first episode to a rewrite. “We completely trusted the team, we trusted the writers … in this case, the pilot just didn’t work out,” The CW President Mark Pedowitz said in May when the script for the episode was leaked. The document, which imagined more grown Powerpuff Girls, attracted attention for its sexual tone. Perhaps it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise knowing that Diablo Cody (‘Juno’, ‘Jennifer’s Body’) is one of the two writers, along with Heather V. Regnier. For now,...
