    The Queen didn't want 'pomp and ceremony for herself' and simply wanted to be buried next to her father - 'but she recognised the role she played', according to royal experts. Her late Majesty, who died at Balmoral aged 96, was laid to rest in a moving private ceremony at Windsor's King George VI Memorial Chapel on Monday night - following a huge and prestigious public funeral at Westminster Abbey. But one royal commentator has speculated that the Queen wouldn't have wanted such a service and only agreed to it out of duty.  Royal biographer Penny Junor told People: 'She wouldn't have wanted that pomp and ceremony for herself, but she recognised the role she played... Even in death, she was still serving.'  The Queen's final resting place has been marked with a simple slab reuniting her for eternity with her adored husband Prince Philip and her parents King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother. Historian Robert Hardman, author of Queen of Our Times: The Life of Elizabeth II, said: 'She had no wish to see a statue of herself or to even...
    (CNN)Conservative activist Virginia "Ginni" Thomas said in an interview published Monday that although she attended a rally on January 6, 2021, she "played no role" in planning the events that day and that she doesn't involve her husband, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, in the political work she does pushing conservative causes.The rare interview with conservative publication the Washington Free Beacon, comes as progressives and some legal ethics experts see a potential conflict with Thomas' activism and her husband's work on the Supreme Court. They point specifically to a recent January order when the court -- over the dissent of Clarence Thomas -- cleared the way for the release of presidential records from the Trump White House to a congressional committee investigating the US Capitol attack.In recent weeks, media outlets, including CNN, have run stories exploring Ginni Thomas' long term activism and calls for Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse."Federal recusal law says that any justice 'shall disqualify' if their impartiality might reasonably be questioned," said Gabe Roth of Fix the Court, a group seeking more transparency from Supreme Court justices.Read...
    The former Facebook employee who is responsible for thousands of pages of leaked internal company research has been identified as Frances Haugen. Haugen, a 37-year-old data scientist from Iowa who was widely known as the 'Facebook whistleblower,' spoke out publicly for the first time since she anonymously filed at least eight complaints with federal law enforcement. In a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday night, Haugen accused the social media network of prioritizing its own interests over the public good and allowing spread of misinformation.  'There were conflicts of interest between what was good for the public and what was good for Facebook. And Facebook, over and over again, chose to optimize for its own interests, like making more money,' she said in the interview. She also claimed that Facebook played a role in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by removing measures that prevent the spread of misinformation which had been implemented ahead of the 2020 election 'As soon as the election was over they turned them back off, or they changed the settings back to what they were...
