The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their children reportedly flew out of Farnborough Airport, west of London, at 1.30pm yesterday, an hour before the Jubilee Pageant started in central London.  It marked the end of their Jubilee, where they were left without any official role having quit as frontline royals in 2020.

    (CNN)Details continue to emerge about the shooting at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket Saturday and the 18-year-old who authorities say is responsible. 10 people killed in a racially motivated mass shooting at a Buffalo supermarket, police sayThirteen people -- 11 of whom are African American -- were shot, according to city officials, who have said the massacre was racially motivated, pointing in part to racist writing purportedly by the suspect.

    Family comes before anything else for me. So, like many others, I find it unimaginable that Meghan Markle the length of the country for a tacky photo opportunity at the site of the Uvalde school shooting, possibly with Netflix reality show cameras in tow, but not drive three-and-a-half hours down the road to see her stricken dad in hospital, who is recovering from a life-threatening stroke that has cruelly stolen his speech. The briefing and counter briefing that has emerged in the last 24 hours about the Duchess of Sussex trying to reconcile with her dad on the condition her brother and sister are left out of any reunion is as disingenuous as it is nonsensical. Right now, Thomas is being cared for 24 hours a day by Thomas Markle Junior, Meghan’s half-brother. Thomas can’t speak – for now his son is responsible for full time rehabilitation as the family try and work out a funding plan for the long months of treatment that remain ahead. More so, Thomas, who is 77-years-old and has a history of serious heart problems,...

    CREATING a likable online dating profile takes a lot of work. You have to choose photos that make you seem attractive but still well-rounded and answer questions in a way that entertains potential matches while not sounding totally cringeworthy. 3A man on TikTok said his response to a Hinge prompt has garnered his a lot of attentionCredit: peterpribylpierdinock/TikTok 3He said he received more matches in the past 24 hours than he had gotten all monthCredit: peterpribylpierdinock/TikTok A man named Peter, who goes by @peterpribylpierdinock on TikTok, said he made a small adjustment to his Hinge profile that got him a ton of matches.

    Winston Churchill once compared Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin to intruders in a five-star hotel. Hitler, he said, stormed up to the top floor and kicked down the door to the most expensive suite. The Soviet dictator took a different tack: he strolled along the corridor trying every door handle. When one door opened, he slipped inside to see what he could steal. If that analogy is applied to Ukraine, Vladimir Putin is right now hammering his fist on the hotel reception desk with an ugly entourage in tow. He's telling anyone who will listen that he made his reservation years ago and is demanding the room keys. It's no good trying to throw him out, because even if he can be made to leave today, he will be back next week or next month. And we know that he is not afraid to use violence. It is not too late to avert an invasion, to save both Ukraine's independence and the Russian president's face — while not endangering our national interests Attack So with the drumbeat of war growing...

    A near-total lunar eclipse is coming in the wee hours of next Friday, one that astronomers say will be the longest in duration in 581 years. At its maximum, which will occur in California at 1:02 a.m., only 3% of the moon will be illuminated according to timeanddate.com, a website that tracks movements of the sun and the moon. The moon will begin to pass into earth’s penumbra (half shadow) at 10:02 p.m. Thursday and the partial eclipse will begin at 10:02 a.m. on Friday. The partial eclipse will end at 2:47 a.m., and the penumbral eclipse will end at 4:03 a.m. The moon will be full and will appear in the southern and western sky across those hours. The reason the event will last so long — just over six hours — is because the moon is near apogee, which is its farthest point from earth. It’s the opposite of perigee (closest to earth), which is what gives us so-called “super moons.” During this year’s super moon in May, for example, the moon was 222,000 miles away. That event...
    A swimmer stranded two and a half miles from shore in the icy waters of Tralee Bay, Ireland, was rescued on Sunday in what an RNLI volunteer called a 'miracle'. The man, believed to be in his early 30s, was hauled out of the freezing water by a Fenit RNLI lifeboat at 8.30pm, aided by a pod of dolphins who lifeboat crew believed 'helped him'. The hypothermic and exhausted man, who is thought to be from Derry, said he had attempted to swim over 5 miles off the coast of Castlegregory beach in southwest Ireland to Mucklaghmore Rock, but he was sorely unprepared.    He was found more than 12 hours after he had set off, wearing nothing but a pair of skimpy swimming trunks and surrounded by dolphins, thanks to RNLI coxswain Finbarr O'Connell's excellent knowledge of the bay's tides and currents.   Fenit RNLI volunteer Jackie Murphy said it was a 'miracle' the man had survived the ordeal, and credited O'Connell with his rescue thanks to his ability to calculate the swimmer's likely position. Coxswain Finbarr O'Connell, the man...

    New York : “Until death do us part”, It is the oath that couples take when they decide to arrive in front of the altar to get married, something that many follow to the letter and remain together until they grow old.

    For her distraught boyfriend it was a moment of agony, followed by utter disbelief — and then joy. Lance O’Brien was midway through a TV interview about the sudden death of his longtime girlfriend, former Charlie’s Angel and Bond Girl Tanya Roberts, when he broke off to take an urgent call.  It was from the Los Angeles hospital where only a day earlier he said he had taken the actress in his arms for the last time. ‘As I held her in her last moments, she opened her eyes,’ he had recounted earlier. ‘Tanya had the most beautiful eyes.’ And then she slipped away, he added tearfully. Only she hadn’t — as that extraordinary telephone exchange revealed when it was broadcast on Monday by the CBS show Inside Edition, which had been interviewing Mr O’Brien at the time via Zoom.
    Beloved actress Tanya Roberts has died . She is pictured in 2017 Bond girl Tanya Roberts has died just 24 hours after her rep prematurely said she passed away while she was fighting for her life in the ICU.   Obituaries for the 65-year-old former Charlie's Angels star were published across the world on Monday after her agent informed the media that she had died at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles on Sunday. But in an emotional interview the following afternoon her partner Lance O'Brien broke down in tears as he received a phone call from the hospital. 'Now, you are telling me she's alive?' O'Brien said, his face torn in anguish.  Sobbing, he told the interviewer: 'The hospital is telling me she is alive. They are calling me from the ICU team.'  Roberts was suffering from an unspecified illness which caused liver and kidney failure.  'Today the doctors told me that it’s best to let her die and to end her life,' he told The Sun on Tuesday.  Roberts, who had spent the day walking her dogs, complained of...

    COLUMBUS, Texas – There are two Santa Museums in the U.S. and one of them can be found right here in South Texas! The Santa Museum in Columbus, Texas, is readying to open for the holiday season, and it’s less than two hours away from San Antonio. With almost 3,000 Santa Claus figures and a multitude of unique restaurants and other antiques, this place is a Christmas lover’s dream. The museum will be open from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., beginning Dec. 1 - 19 and admission is free! However, monetary donations are accepted and are used for maintenance and facility upgrades.

All three collections feature “figurines, music boxes, dolls, dishes, ornaments, artwork, needlework, and photos from all over the world,” according to the museum’s website.

    WHEN Amber Dumbill began reducing her insulin medication, she only had one goal in mind - to lose weight. She knew it was risky, but the then student was more concerned about being the slimmest in her class. 9Amber Dumbill had developed a dangerous eating disorder known as diabulimiaCredit: PA Real Life 9The keen dancer was only a size 14 at her largest but decided to risk death to be slimmerCredit: PA Real Life It was only when she started vomiting blood and had to be rushed to hospital that Amber realised how close she had come to dying. Now 24, she realises she had been playing "Russian roulette" with her health for a decade before spiralling into the grips of a dangerous eating disorder called diabulimia.

    Washington state cops allegedly shot dead an unarmed black man as he ran away from officers Thursday night before leaving his body lying in the street for 12 hours, moving his car from the scene before his corpse and refusing to speak to his family about the incident.  Kevin Peterson, a 21-year-old father to a baby girl, was shot and killed by deputies from the Clark County Sheriff's Office in a US Bank parking lot in Vancouver just before 6 p.m. Thursday.  Witnesses said they saw Peterson 'looking scared' and running from the officers before cops offloaded multiple rounds of bullets into him. Ben Crump, the attorney for several other families of black people killed by cops, claims his body was then left lying in the street for 12 hours and that authorities refused to speak with his devastated family.  Clark County Sheriff's Office confirmed hours later its deputies had been involved in a shooting near the 6800 block of NE Highway 99, in the Hazel Dell area of the city but has released no further details of the incident. ...

    Early on October 16, a woman was organizing her belongings on the steps of the Greek Amphitheater of Civic Center Park. She was not alone. Over a hundred people were thawing in the sun after a night outside in freezing temperatures, offering a striking backdrop to Denver’s Race and Homelessness Vigil, which was just starting its third day. Across the painted street with its sapling barriers, an attentive group had gathered in front of the Denver City & County Building, listening to speakers, contributing to food drives, and passing out supplies. The vigil is slated to last just under four days: 98 hours, or 5,256 minutes — representing the 5,256 BIPOC who were counted as homeless in a recent survey.Related Stories Racial Inequity Extends to Homelessness, New Report Says Denver City Council Starts Chipping Away at Remnants of Old Zoning Code Homeless Camps in Central Denver Are Growing, but Nothing New Denver Homeless Out Loud organized the action in response to data gathered by the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative Point in Time Count and Survey showing that the city's...
    A pregnant woman was shot to death as she slept in bed at a Connecticut home early Monday, just hours after her cousin was slain in a shooting on a nearby street. Karla Bermudez, 22, was struck multiple times after gunshots were fired through the second-floor window of a large multi-family home on the corner of Washington Terrace and Washington Place at around 5:30am this morning. Police say Bermudez’s boyfriend, who was lying next to her in bed at the time, was the intended target of the shooting. He too was struck by gunfire but suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Bermudez, who was 23 weeks pregnant, was rushed to St. Vincent’s Medical Center, but despite lifesaving efforts, she was pronounced dead shortly after arriving. Her unborn child, a baby girl, also did not survive. Her death came just over 24 hours after her cousin, 24-year-old Heriberto Marquez, was found dead by police having suffered a single gunshot wound to the head, just four blocks away. Karla Bermudez, who was 23 weeks pregnant, was rushed to St. Vincent’s Medical Center, but...
    President Donald Trump said he didn't need to wear a mask at his Monday night fundraiser because he was 'far away' from others, even as he revealed he carries one in his pocket and he favors even more social distancing than six-foot standard. Trump made the comments at a White House press briefing where despite apparent reluctance to be photographed wearing a mask for months as the coronavirus pandemic raged he suddenly encouraged Americans to do so. 'I have the mask right here,' Trump said, whipping out a mask bearing the presidential seal to show reporters at his rebooted coronavirus briefing. 'I have the mask right here,' Trump said, as he defended his decision not to wear one at a fundraiser at his D.C. hotel 'I do actually do it when I need. I carry the mask,' Trump said. 'I will use it, gladly. No problem with it,' Trump said.   He defended his decision not to wear a mask at his D.C. hotel, where he attended a fundraiser Monday night that hauled in $5 million just hours after sending...
    There’s also a plethora of attack options which are also coded by type. It gets confusing pretty quickly and the tutorial does a poor job of explaining it well, to the point where I was almost done with the game before it actually clicked.  You even gain experience points and level up, with additional abilities you can purchase to assist your verbal sparring. When I played Undertale I was stymied by the bullet hell monster attacks, to the point where I needed to restart the entire game and never actually finished. In Last Word , the mechanics still manage to honor the more strategic and thoughtful turn-based menu systems I’ve come to appreciate (and rely on) in RPGs but yet feel incredibly new.  The contemporary setting is also a nice change as well, and probably necessary, given that the debate-based battles mechanics are more at home in the parlor of a fine 20th century manor than they would be in a medieval castle. It’s also blissfully short — only six hours — which means if you love RPGs but often...
    God bless … Canada? On July 4, Brett Bacon and his family were enjoying a boat ride across Lake Windermere in British Columbia, about 130 miles from the United States border, when they spotted a “giant bird” struggling on the water. Once they were close enough, Bacon hung himself over the side of the boat to reach the raptor and realized it was a young bald eagle. Meanwhile, his partner captured the entire rescue effort on video. Bacon swiftly pulled the bird out of the water and into the vessel. Later, he can be seen clutching and soothing the anxious animal as it makes an attempt to fly away. Understanding that the scared, soaking-wet eagle needed to dry off and relax before being released, he sat with the bird for a few hours before it was ready to take flight. Meanwhile, Bacon’s infant son can be seen watching as his hero pop consoled the majestic creature. “Happy 4th of July. Saved a baby eagle from drowning in the middle of the lake,” Bacon wrote in an Instagram post on...
