    At 8.46am on September 11, 2001, an impact like an earthquake rocked the south tower of the World Trade Center (WTC) in Manhattan.  In the Merrill Lynch bank's conference room on the 96th floor, walls shook and windows rattled. The lights flickered off and on. Tania Head, 26, a manager on the bank's fast-track scheme, was chairing a meeting when she heard shrieks from the corridor. She and her colleagues looked up. Through the windows, they saw black smoke billowing from the building opposite — the WTC's north tower. They watched a ball of flame rolling up from about five floors below them. People began to scream, to clutch at each other in panic or make for the doors. They grabbed their phones and began calling friends and relatives, begging them to switch on the TV news. A speck tumbled from a north tower window, and then another. At first, Tania took them for pieces of furniture, chairs or desks, flung from the burning building. Then she saw one was a human figure, its arms flapping, trying desperately to fly as...
    The leader of a US Cuban exiles group has slammed claims made by the founder of The 1619 Project branding Cuba as one of the most 'equal' multi-racial countries in the world, as 'ideological Marxist spin.'   Orlando Gutierrez-Boronat ridiculed the words of Nikole Hannah-Jones, who has come under fire after a 2019 podcast in which she claimed the communist country has the 'least inequality' thanks to its socialist government resurfaced. The Havana-born scholar accused the New York Times journalist about 'not caring' about Cuba, claiming she was using the country's 'plight' to promote Marxism instead.  'Her assertion that what she says is "equality" is largely due to socialism is ideological spin. That doesn't reflect the reality of Cuban history,' Miami-based Gutierrez-Boronat told DailyMail.com.   'There is a very simple comparison you can make that shows how wrong this statement by Nikole Hannah-Jones is,' he continued.  'Look at the central committee of the Communist Party for the past 62 years and tell me how many prominent black Cubans have been in that central committee. 'And then look at the republic that existed...

    Elon Musk made his debut on Saturday Night Live when he served as host on May 8, alongside musical guest Miley Cyrus.

    COVID-19 was not the 'most viewed' story on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Center for Global Health website for 2020 - with a story about malaria and one about HIV in Africa getting more attention than the most read coronavirus story. The list of top 5 viewed stories from the CDC did include three related to COVID-19, with the most read being about the agency's global response to the coronavirus pandemic.  But the most viewed story was actually one in recognition of World Mosquito Day 2020 on August 20, highlighting the 'troubling spread' of the Anopheles stephens mosquito.  The most viewed story was actually one in recognition of World Mosquito Day 2020 on August 20 The list of top 5 viewed stories from the CDC did include three related to COVID-19 This particular mosquito has quickly spread from parts of Asia to Africa after it was first detected in parts of Eastern Africa in 2012, thriving in man-made habitats and actively entering houses, according to the CDC.   The second most viewed story on the website was about...
    Chess is not the sexiest of subjects. With a reputation as a staid, even nerdish pastime, it's often seen as the preserve of bookish boys and old men. But thanks to a mesmerising performance by British actress Anya Taylor-Joy, and a riveting book by American author Walter Tevis, the chess drama The Queen's Gambit has become the surprise boxset binge of the second lockdown. Taylor-Joy, 24, plays Beth Harmon, a chess prodigy and orphan from Kentucky whose genius is never in doubt, but whose drug and drink addictions mean disaster is constantly stalking her — both on and off the board. The seven-part series has gained fans among both chess professionals, for the authenticity of the game strategies, and fashionistas for the stunning Sixties clothes and interiors. So was there a real Beth Harmon? Who advised the makers on the games? And where did they film the show that's topping Netflix's charts? ALISON BOSHOFF has the story. Checkmate: Anya Taylor-Joy as chess prodigy Beth Harmon in The Queen's Gambit
    Identical twins separated at birth in a cruel experiment have spoken for the first time about how they found each other after a chance encounter at a pancake restaurant. Melanie Mertzel had no idea she had a long-lost sister. Suddenly, at age 23, she found herself looking at someone she never knew existed - someone with exactly the same eyes, voice and laugh as her - her twin, Ellen Carbone. 
    Secrets are scarce in modern video games. And I don’t mean easter eggs that anyone with a working internet can find hours after a game releases — I mean actual, honest-to-god secrets. So it should come as no surprise that the Speedrun crew had to return to 1997 to find one. In the years when message boards and forum threads reigned supreme, something as innocuous as a hazy island in the 64-bit distance could drive players into a frenzy. Such was the case on the Dam level in the FPS classic Goldeneye 007. Through the lens of a sniper rifle, players could see a small pack of buildings across a large reservoir. Was it a bonus area? An allusion to the movie? The end point of some secret passageway hidden earlier in the level? With the help of GameSharks and noclip cheats, players eventually discovered what many had feared: it was nothing. Just a leftover production asset the team at Rare never got around to finishing. But at that point, it almost didn’t matter. The myth of the island...
    'Where’s the positivity,’ moans Prince Harry,' why is everyone so miserable and angry?’ I regret to say I laughed out loud when I read that line from the new book “Finding Freedom” which claims to be the REAL story about why Harry and his wife Meghan quit the Royals and Britain. It’s hard to think of anyone in public life right now more relentlessly miserable, angry and negative than the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Barely a week goes by without them whining about something or suing people. Scroll down for video  Meghan Markle and Prince Harry pose for a photograph in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in west London on November 27, 2017, after the announcement of their engagement They’ve become serial victims, intent on painting themselves as the most hard-done-by people on God’s earth. Yet the more they complain, as the rest of the world struggles with the very real hell of the worst pandemic for 100 years, the more they expose themselves as a pair of appallingly bitter, staggeringly self-obsessed, utterly deluded, and woefully tone-deaf...
    New York — Despite being one of the most successful artists, the interpreter does not forget where she came from and she demonstrates it with her humble home. The 73-year-old singer, Paquita la del Barrio, has been characterized throughout her career by her simplicity and humility. This is demonstrated by the house he has in the Colonia Guerrero, considered one of the most popular, and even dangerous, neighborhoods in Mexico City. In this place is located one of the properties of the interpreter of ‘Rata de dos Patasâ € ™’ who injected all his style into the decoration of his dwelling. In a tour he gave to the ‘Ventaneando’ program, Paquita showed off its colorful stained glass windows, which stand out for having the image of various herons. During the tour she shared her taste for collecting memories of her travels and even showed a painting that she herself painted and arranged. Its dining room is made up of a rectangular table with space for eight chairs that combine white with gold. In that room also has a large...
    (CNN)Microplastics have been discovered in the gut of an animal on a remote island in the Antarctic, raising concerns that plastic pollution could be prevalent in the region's ecosystem. A new study by researchers in Italy and Ireland found traces of contamination inside the gut of the "Cryptopygus antarcticus," a small invertebrate that lives in the soil of the Antarctic. The tiny creature is also known as a springtail and it is less than 1 millimeter in length, according to the scientists. In a statement ahead of the release of their study, the researchers said their findings constituted the "first field-based evidence of contamination by microplastics in Antarctic terrestrial animals." A graph showing the levels of plastic pollution found in the gut of the "Cryptopygus antarcticus."They made their discovery after testing 18 animals which had been found on a large piece on polystyrene foam in 2016 on the shore of King George Island, situated north of the Antarctic continent.

    Sen. Mitt Romney, a Republican stalwart, joined a Black Lives Matter march. Some NASCAR drivers, whose fan base includes legions of conservative whites, embraced the phrase. So did NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred and executives of all 30 major league teams. The mayor of Washington ordered the words painted in large letters on a street near the White House. Now, Black Lives Matter Plaza turns up in driving directions from Google Maps. Like many black activists, Sakira Cook is pleased by such developments but also cautious. She and others worry that businesses and politicians will hijack the slogan without any real commitment to doing the hard work needed to fight racism. "Black Lives Matter is not just a rallying cry," said Cook, director of the Justice Reform Program at the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. "It actually means you have to start to interrogate the systemic racism and inequalities that exist in our society and help to dismantle them. You must make sure you're not co-opting this for your own purposes." The Black Lives Matter...
    Wilmer Flores stood at shortstop at Citi Field, crying, during a loss to the Padres on July 29, 2015 when word leaked that he’d been traded to the Brewers —along with Zack Wheeler — in exchange for Carlos Gomez. The deal never went through, as the Mets were concerned about Gomez’s hip. The Mets would instead end up trading with the Tigers for Yoenis Cespedes, whose unfathomable home run hot streak helped propel the Mets to the division title. Two days later, Flores belted a game-winning homer in the bottom of the 12th to beat the Nationals and begin a seven-game winning streak that helped propel the Mets to the NL East title and a World Series appearance. “I don’t know if it changed my life,” Flores told The Post’s Steve Serby in 2017. “It definitely changed the way fans look at me. We’ve got to be tough out there, and fans don’t see that part of us, like the human part.” It’s rarely on display more than on that July night in Queens, as TV cameras showed Flores in...
    The 2020 college football season will be the most important one in the history of the sport. Never before has football mattered in this country as much as it matters right now. Never before have Saturdays in the fall been as important as they’re going to be in a few months. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Our country is in a very dark place right now. The United States of America is fractured and divided, and we need something to help heal the wounds.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Mac Jones (@macjones_10) on Apr 14, 2019 at 7:04pm PDT In the past few months, we’ve watched people get shut into their homes because of coronavirus and then we watched society seemingly come apart at the seams in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death. We watched the carnage unfold on social media and on our televisions as peaceful protests and riots gripped the nation. We need something to bring us together, and nothing will get the job...
    (CNN)For the better part of the last four decades, George F. Will has been at the intellectual center of American conservatism. Now he is calling for a full-blown rout of the Republican Party at the ballot box in November.While Will has harsh words for Trump -- "this low-rent Lear raging on his Twitter-heath has proven that the phrase malignant buffoon is not an oxymoron" -- he saves his true condemnation for the members of Congress who have enabled the President. THE POINT -- NOW ON YOUTUBE! In each episode of his weekly YouTube show, Chris Cillizza will delve a little deeper into the surreal world of politics. Click to subscribe! Writes Will:"In life's unforgiving arithmetic, we are the sum of our choices. Congressional Republicans have made theirs for more than 1,200 days. We cannot know all the measures necessary to restore the nation's domestic health and international standing, but we know the first step: Senate Republicans must be routed, as condign punishment for their Vichyite collaboration, leaving the Republican remnant to wonder: Was it sensible to sacrifice...
    Scientists have confirmed the existence of the exoplanet Proxima b, a planet just 4.2 light-years from Earth. Given how close it is to its star, Proxima Centauri, it could have liquid water, and "therefore, harbor life." Researchers said the confirmation of the planet's existence is an "important task," and were accurately able to indicate its mass – 1.17 times that of Earth – and its orbit, at 11.2 days around its host star. "Confirming the existence of Proxima b was an important task, and it's one of the most interesting planets known in the solar neighborhood," Alejandro Suarez Mascareño, the study's lead author, said in a statement. Artist's impression of Proxima b. (ESO/M. Kornmesser) 'ONE IN A MILLION' SUPER-EARTH DISCOVERED IN DEEP SPACE The astronomers were able to accurately measure the exoplanet's mass and orbit thanks to ESPRESSO, a Swiss-made spectrograph on the Very Large Telescope in Chile. Proxima b was first detected in 2016 using an older spectograph known as HARPS, but ESPRESSO's precision has proved invaluable, researchers note. "We were already very happy with the performance of HARPS, which has...
