    Former Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton joked on CNN Wednesday he is “embarrassed” Iranians didn’t value him enough to offer more money for his assassination. Shahram Poursafi, also known as Mehdi Rezayi, was indicted in a plot to allegedly accept $300,000 in cryptocurrency for killing Bolton. Poursafi is a member of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and remains at large. The plot to kill Bolton was in part due to his praise of former President Donald Trump’s January 2020 drone strike in Iraq, which killed former Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Bolton expressed gratitude online after the plot to murder him was announced. “I wish to thank the Justice Dept for initiating the criminal proceeding unsealed today; the FBI for its diligence in discovering and tracking the Iranian regime’s criminal threat to American citizens; and the Secret Service for providing protection against Tehran’s efforts,” Bolton said in part.

    MARIPOSA, Calif.  —  Maybe it was shock or maybe it was denial, but when Rodney McGuire learned his home of 22 years had been destroyed in the Oak fire, he held his composure and wondered what he would do next. Then without warning, he stepped behind a tree and burst into tears. “I put my heart and soul into that house,” the 57-year-old mechanic said. “I cried behind a tree for 10 minutes until I could pull myself together.” On Wednesday, residents throughout this tiny Sierra Nevada foothill community were learning whether they too had lost their homes in an explosive fire that was still burning in the direction of Yosemite National Park and threatened to enter steep, difficult terrain that was thick with fuel. But even as fire crews battled flames near the ominously named Devil’s Gulch, authorities began lifting evacuation orders along the blaze’s southern and western flanks. For many evacuees, it was their first opportunity to return home since fleeing beneath a monstrous fire cloud days earlier. McGuire still hasn’t had a chance to...
    EVER wondered what that tiny pocket on your jeans is for? It could purely be for fashion or it could have a historic purpose that might well blow your mind. 3What can you fit in your mini pocket?Credit: Getty The tiny-weeny pockets date back to 1890 when they were stitched into Levi's 'waist overalls' jeans. They were originally designed to hold pocket watches, but as we don't use pocket watches anymore, what purpose do they serve now? The now commonly seen blue jeans made by Levi Strauss & Co invented it two centuries ago and has kept it ever since.

Davis made for "Improvement in Fastening Pocket Openings," on May 20, 1873.

    Above my home in the Hollywood Hills, just one helicopter was circling, so it was quieter than usual.  It was one of those nights where you hope your biggest challenge will be uncorking a bottle of wine. Little did I know that an internet search was about to change my life. That evening in spring 2013, I had been clicking around on ancestry websites — my new wine-time habit.  Until then, I hadn’t given much thought to the past. I’d been busy with my Hollywood career, finding success as an actor, screenwriter and producer. But as I entered my 40s things had changed.

    When the global financial crash hit in 2008, Elon Musk's business empire was left on the brink of collapse. His rocket business SpaceX had seen three catastrophic launch failures. His electric car manufacturer Tesla was haemorrhaging cash, with 18 per cent of its workforce laid off. The $200 million (£159 million) he made from the sale of PayPal to Ebay six years earlier was almost all gone.  Musk's girlfriend, British actress Talulah Riley, said he would wake up at night screaming and seemingly in physical pain. 'That was definitely the worst year of my life,' Musk has said.  'I remember waking up and thinking, 'Man, I never, ever thought I was someone who would be capable of a nervous breakdown. Damn! This is the closest I've ever come.' It seemed pretty dark.' With much of his personal fortune plunged into his businesses, and his last $30 million evaporating at terrifying speed, he was working more than 100 hours a week and faced a bleak dilemma. 'I could either provide all of the money for SpaceX or all of the money...
    A WOMAN has left people on TikTok stunned after revealing what the catch on the front of their washing machines is for. Amberle Buss reacted to a video from Lauryn Emily in which she explained that anyone with a front-loading washing machine should splash out on a magnet which holds the door open, to prevent mould and nasty smells. 3A woman has blown people's minds after revealing what the catch is for on the front of a washing machineCredit: Tik Tok/ amberthebuss 3She showed how the catch stopped the door from closingCredit: Tik Tok/ amberthebuss But stitching the video, Amberle shook her head and exclaimed "No!" as she went over to her own washing machine to demonstrate how she keeps the door open.

    "I recognize that this is a significant commitment, and for good reason. Slavery and its legacy have been a part of American life for more than 400 years," Bacow explained. "The work of further redressing its persistent effects will require our sustained and ambitious efforts for years to come." The committee also recommended supporting descendants whose ancestors were enslaved by Harvard officials or who worked on the campus, developing partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities, honoring enslaved people and Native Americans, and working to ensure institutional accountability. The Washington Post noted that Bacow's statement stopped short of explicitly offering an apology for Harvard's role in slavery. Harvard's endowment is more than $53 billion.

    When Rosa Isela Beltran Lopez vanished from her Jurupa Valley home in January 2019, her husband, Juan Carlos Lopez Alvarado, told family members that she’d been kidnapped. Don’t call the police, Alvarado said; he’d deal with the abductors himself to win her freedom. But cell tower records, surveillance images, DNA and a plastic bag uncovered by Riverside County sheriff’s investigators told another story. And so at the Riverside Hall of Justice on Friday, Feb. 4, three years to the day that Lopez’s body was found in a sleeping bag in Mexico, Alvarado, 47, was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison for murdering Lopez, 43. “The efforts of local and Mexican officials, including Riverside County sheriff’s Investigator Ruben Martinez, Baja California Police Chief Enrique Trujillo Martinez and Deputy District Attorney Karrie Brusselback led to Juan Carlos Lopez Alvarado being sentenced,” the DA’s Office said in a Twitter message. Alvarado’s own hunt for evidence triggered the events that resulted in his incarceration. The couple had been married for more than 20 years, but late in 2018, Alvarado suspected Lopez was...

    SACRAMENTO COUNTY (CBS13) — A case that started out as a deadly hit-and-run on Highway 50 last month has taken a darker turn.

    People have been opting for comfort over style during lockdown, and for many women that's amounted to not wearing a bra when they don't have to leave the house to work or socialise. And after more than a year to get accustomed to the feeling of going braless, many have sworn not to go back to wearing underwear as life goes back to normal.   One Instagram model from London told Femail that she doesn't think bras are 'necessary' anymore, while another woman urged people to opt for what's 'comfortable' after she stopped wearing 'painful' underwired bras. It comes as women across the world have been taking to Twitter and Instagram to reveal that they have binned their bras during lockdown to be comfortable while spending more time at home.

    BOOK OF THE WEEK AGELESS: THE NEW SCIENCE OF GETTING OLDER WITHOUT GETTING OLD    by Andrew Steele (Bloomsbury £20, 400 pp) A tortoise named Harriet died of a heart attack in an Australian zoo in 2006. She was 175 years old and had been collected from the Galapagos Islands by Charles Darwin during his round-the-world trip on HMS Beagle in 1835. She had survived Darwin by well over a century. Not only that. She was in good health until her final year. As Andrew Steele points out in his absorbing guide to the latest scientific thinking on growing old, Galapagos tortoises display what’s called ‘negligible senescence’. They don’t suffer the debilitating health consequences of old age. Harriet would have been as perky in the first years of the 21st century as she was when Queen Victoria was on the throne. British author Andrew Steele, explores the latest scientific thinking on ageing in a new book (file image) Human beings are not so lucky.

    Coronavirus can survive for a long period of time in the testicles and may affect male fertility, a new study suggests. Researchers from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine analyzed testis tissue from six autopsies and found that three of them had impaired sperm function. What's more, the virus was found inside the testicle of a male patient who had long- recovered, for about a month, while never showing any symptoms. The lead author tells DailyMail.com that the findings suggest up to 20 percent of men who survive COVID-19 may have long-term fertility issues.

    By DAVID KEYTON and FRANK JORDANS | Associated Press STOCKHOLM — Americans Harvey J. Alter and Charles M. Rice and British-born scientist Michael Houghton jointly won the Nobel Prize for medicine on Monday for their discovery of the hepatitis C virus, a major source of liver disease that affects millions worldwide. Announcing the prize in Stockholm, the Nobel Committee noted that the trio’s work identified a major source of blood-borne hepatitis that couldn’t be explained by the previously discovered hepatitis A and B viruses. Their work, dating back to the 1970s and 1980s, has helped saved millions of lives, it said. “Thanks to their discovery, highly sensitive blood tests for the virus are now available and these have essentially eliminated post-transfusion hepatitis in many parts of the world, greatly improving global health,” the committee said. “Their discovery also allowed the rapid development of antiviral drugs directed at hepatitis C,” it added. “For the first time in history, the disease can now be cured, raising hopes of eradicating hepatitis C virus from the world population.” WHO estimates there are over 70...

    Gyms within government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned establishments being ordered to close due to the coronavirus. “It’s shocking, it’s infuriating,” Daniele Rabkin, of Crossfit Golden Gate, told a local NBC station. “Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking.” The gyms that have been open for government employees include those for police officers, judges, lawyers, bailiffs, and paralegals, according to the report. One such gym, the Hall of Justice gym, has been open since July 1. “It just demonstrates that there seems to be some kind of a double standard between what city employees are allowed to do and what the residents of San Francisco are allowed to do,” Dave Karraker, owner of MX3 Fitness in the Castro, said. “What the city has unwillingly done is created this great case study that says that working out indoors is actually safe,” said Karraker. “So at this point, we’re just demanding that they allow us to have the same workout privileges for the citizens of...

I can safely say that you will never truly run out of good movies to watch—but only if you know how to find good movies to watch.Like sourcing new music, figuring out what’s worth adding to your watch queue beyond the latest blockbusters and award-winners takes time, effort and attention. And increasingly, one of my favorite ways to do it is via podcasts. Ever since two guys with annoying voices hooked up mics to a computer, there have been film podcasts, but today—more than a decade into the podcast boom—there are plenty of them that go well beyond the familiar can-we-still-really-call-them-niches (laughing at crappy movies; obsessively analyzing Star Wars). While I still enjoy plenty of those shows (probably because they are made by and for guys exactly like me), I’ve recently broadened my podcast...

    A humble Tanzanian miner has discovered the world’s largest cache of tanzanite — worth over $3 million. The two midnight-blue gemstones were unearthed in the eastern African country’s north region — the only part of the world where tanzanite can be found, Sky News reports There, gem miners operate independently, and are known to work with their hands rather than large-scale excavation equipment.
