    It's easily forgotten that, as well as being a mother, wife and daughter, Queen Elizabeth was also a sister. They grew up as a unit, but their destinies were to prove wildly different, with Elizabeth’s decades of service and constancy contrasting sharply with Margaret’s much wilder, shorter and more rackety life. In the 1930s, they were always known to the public as a twosome: ‘the little Princesses’. Yet even in childhood, the contrasting characters of the two sisters, Elizabeth and Margaret, were already clear to those who knew them well. The strength of Elizabeth's affection for her sometimes difficult younger sister is evident in this photograph of Elizabeth with Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1960s Their father, King George VI, would refer to Elizabeth as his pride, and Margaret, four years her junior, as his joy Their father, King George VI, would refer to Elizabeth as his pride, and Margaret, four years her junior, as his joy. Elizabeth was serious and dutiful; Margaret was disobedient and playful. Their long-serving governess, Marion Crawford, arrived in their household when Princess Margaret Rose, as...
    For four days before the start of these Eastern Conference finals, left with little else to discuss during yet another extended postseason break, coach Erik Spoelstra and his Miami Heat players spoke of the impending need to make the hustle plays, be first to the ball, impose will, take care of the small stuff in the margins. Basically, all the trite notions that eventually would give way to superstars offering the spectacular during the penultimate round of the postseason. Only not so trite. And almost as they were speaking directly to and directly about veteran power forward P.J. Tucker. Because beyond all those who filled the box score Tuesday night with the gaudy, from the 41 points of Heat forward Jimmy Butler in the 118-107 Game 1 victory of the best-of-seven series to the 29 of Celtics forward Jayson Tatum in his team’s loss, it arguably was the small stuff from Tucker that carried some of the game’s greatest heft. “The heartbeat of our team,” Spoelstra said of the 37-year-old veteran who is coming off last season’s championship with the...
    Willem Dafoe made quite the impression while hosting an episode of Saturday Night Live over the weekend. The 66-year-old Oscar nominee appeared in several sketches throughout the show, and performed as a dog show host and a particularly destructive temp, among other roles, before Katy Perry took to the stage to sing two of her hits. The Spider-Man actor started off the episode by making his way to the front of the show's stage and meeting the program's fans. Up front and center: Willem Dafoe made quite the impression while hosting an episode of Saturday Night Live over the weekend Dafoe appeared to be well-received by the studio audience, and began his monologue by expressing that it was 'good to be back in New York.'

    Taylor Swift and Pete Davidson teamed up for a hilarious music video, in which they ruthlessly roasted a trio of 'virgin' Saturday Night Live writers. While the three writers were initially thrilled to work with the 27-year-old comedian, they quickly regret the decision when they heard the lyrics at their expense.

    Volunteers are working to dig out hundreds of homes buried under toxic ash in La Palma, as the island was last night hit by the strongest earthquake since a volcanic eruption almost a month ago. Footage filmed by local Juanma Hernandez shows homes barely visible under a mountain of black ash.  Volunteers with face masks on can be seen desperately digging with spades to uncover the buildings.  The surrounding hills are also blanketed with ash, with tree tops peeking out from within the heaps. The camera pans to reveal that as far as the eye can see, the landscape is completely black with ash.

    The more Sergio Romo racks up scoreless innings, the more A’s manager Bob Melvin is inclined to wait before inserting the veteran relief pitcher in the game. When the season began, Romo would appear after a starter’s early departure as a middle reliever. When Romo put up a zero in Wednesday night’s 6-3 win over Cleveland, it came in the eighth inning. “He’s pitched his way in to where we’re using him a lot in the eighth inning with leads,” Melvin said before the A’s were scheduled to close out a three-game series in Cleveland. “We also feel like we have some other set-up guys too depending on match-ups, whether it’s (Andrew) Chafin, whether it’s (Yusmeiro) Petit or (Jake) Diekman. We’re pretty well set down there. “But Romo has been absolutely fantastic. You look at his numbers over the last 15, 20 outings, he’s good enough to be a set-up guy. Good enough to be a closer with those numbers.” Romo, 38, is in one of the best stretches of his career. His slider (or sliders,...
    Tesla CEO Elon Musk will be flexing his comedic prowess as he makes his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live on May 8.  The longtime NBC variety show made the announcement via social media as they shared a photo with Musk's name alongside Miley Cyrus — who was tapped as musical guest — captioning the image 'Musk See TV.'  The news came as shock to many as the program does not usually tap business moguls such as the SpaceX founder to play host, but it seemed a lucrative move on SNL's part.  'Musk See TV': Elon Musk is tapped to host Saturday Night Live on May 8 with musical guest Miley Cyrus  Though a surefire way to get eyeballs on the screen, many took issue with the tech wizard hosting, as they felt he didn't need more exposure as he boasts a net worth of $177B dollars.  Amongst a flurry of 'OMG, NO,' comments on the show's Instagram account and Twitter, one remark of approval was hard to come by.  'Someone needs to tell them that absolutely no one wants this....

    WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBSNEWS.COM) – President Trump is leaving Washington, D.C. aboard Air Force One Wednesday morning for the last time as president, hours after he pardoned 73 people, including his former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, and rapper Lil Wayne, and commuted the sentences of 70 others.

    Donald Trump's presidential campaign anthem made something of a comeback Monday night as he dad danced on stage to the YMCA at the Senate runoff rally in Dalton, Georgia. The president launched into some awkward shuffling and fist-pumping to the Village People song at the close of the last-ditch rally held to try to drum up support for the two GOP candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.  The anthem and dance became synonymous with Trump's rallies in the run-up to the presidential election as he made a tradition of closing out each event with a boogie. But Monday marked the first time Trump has broken into dance on stage since the last night of his presidential campaign rally on November 2 - hours before Americans went to the polls and voted Joe Biden as the next president of the United States. Several people took to social media to comment on the return with many quipping that Trump and his supporters must still not know 'what the song is about' as it is most well-known as an anthem among the LGBTQ+...
    Donald Trump will never accept that he lost the election, even if his legal challenges fail. Sources close to the White House say he will even refuse to attend the inauguration of a rival he sees as a ‘phoney President’, as he continues to protest that was cheated in a fraudulent vote. ‘He has no concession speech ready and no intention of recognising Joe Biden’s presidency,’ one Republican source said last night. As Joe Biden was declared president-elect, Donald Trump, pictured left, went to Virginia to play golf as he refused to concede defeat Some commentators have compared President Trump's denial of defeat to Adolf Hitler in his bunker depicted in the film Downfall The President spent hours holed up in the White House with a hardened core of loyalists spurring him on in his angry defiance of the result. Insiders described the atmosphere inside the West Wing as ‘manic, exuberant, energised and toxic’, with some staff lighting rose-scented candles in an attempt to soften the environment – and to combat the smell of fast-food delivered to the President...
    Las Vegas police have blamed the city's recent surge in violence on cheap hotel deals, claiming the low rates are attracting out-of-towners.  Las Vegas is currently experiencing an increase in violent crimes, particularly on the Strip, where hotel rates have plummeted due to the coronavirus pandemic.  Police said the famous three-mile corridor, which includes more than 20 resorts, has seen a surge in aggravated assaults including fights, stabbings and shootings since its reopening in June.  Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said the crime spike may be linked to lower hotel rates that are drawing visitors to the city who are unable to visit nightclubs and entertainment venues that remain closed. Las Vegas is currently experiencing an increase in violent crimes, particularly on the Strip, where hotel rates have plummeted due to the coronavirus pandemic 'The type of customer that is showing up… they're more interested in creating chaos than entertaining themselves or engaging themselves,' he said in August.   Las Vegas Metropolitan Police earlier this month revealed nearly 1,500 people were arrested in August and September in the city's Convention...
    The COVID-19 friendly City of the Dead Drive-In Haunted House, produced by 13th Floor Entertainment Group, is marketed as scary, but it's a poor substitute for a haunted house — funny at best, but mostly boring. Someone between the ages of eight and twelve might find something to enjoy here, but the scariest thing I saw was the price tag: Tickets are $39.99 a car, which admits a driver and a passenger. Additional passengers can be added for $9.99. For VIP tickets, a spot right in the front, is $59.99 per car. Those are first-rate haunted house prices, but this is no haunted house.

    Moderator Chris Wallace has been branded the loser of the first 2020 presidential debate after he failed to rein in 90 minutes of chaos between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.  Viewers and political analysts likened the Fox News anchor's performance to that of a kindergarten teacher as he repeatedly asked the candidates to stop interrupting each other and his pleas fell on deaf ears. By the end of the night Wallace had spent more time scolding - mainly in Trump's direction - than he did asking the questions he had to fight to get out.  Trump joined the chorus of critics on Wednesday morning, asserting that Wallace ganged up with Biden to attack him.  'Chris had a tough night. Two on one was not surprising, but fun,' the president tweeted.  Moderator Chris Wallace has been branded the loser of the first 2020 presidential debate after he failed to reign in 90 minutes of chaos between Donald Trump and Joe Biden Viewers and political analysts likened Wallace's performance to that of a kindergarten teacher as he repeatedly asked the...
    Republican Senator Tim Scott, on the morning after he championed Donald Trump's re-election, disagreed with the president on one of the major issues of the campaign: mail-in voting.  Scott told the 'Today Show' that using mail-in balloting in November 'will work out just fine' - a marked contrast to President Trump, who has complained - without proof - that mail-in voting leads to election fraud.  And the senator from South Carolina refused to bite when 'Today Show' host Savannah Guthrie pressed him on differing with the president on the issue.   'You'll have an opportunity I hope to interview the president,' Scott said Tuesday morning. 'I'll just tell you how I feel about it and what I think most Americans believe and that is this process of mail-in ballots will work out just fine. I think every single American should have the right to vote. How we do so is important. That we do so is more important.' South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott differed with President Trump on mail-in voting, saying he thought November's election would be 'just fine' ...
    Donald Trump Jr took his turn in the spotlight on Monday night as the highest profile member of the first family to address the Republican National Convention. His girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle also addressed the GOP faithful that night in remarks that seemed to come from the pulpit, with her arms reached over head as if in prayer as she shouted out praise for President Donald Trump. But it was president’s eldest son who made the main political argument of the night and struck directly and forcefully at his father’s rival for the presidency - Democratic nominee Joe Biden. 'This time the other party is attacking the very principles on which our Nation was founded,' he said of Democrats.   He accused Biden, who has spent over 40 years in public office as a senator from Delaware and then as vice president, ‘the Loch Ness Monster of the Swamp’ – which is the nickname for Washington D.C. ‘Joe Biden is basically the Loch Ness Monster of the Swamp. For the past half-century, he’s been lurking around in there. He sticks his head up...
    A SCUFFLE broke out at Last Night of the Proms when Remainers lashed out at Leavers waving a "Brexit Now" banner. Two pro-EU attendees, one wearing a gold and blue beret, attempted to tear down the pro-leave flag during a rendition of Jerusalem. 4 EU flags waved at the Last Night of the Proms angered viewers The Brexiteers were then removed from the Royal Albert Hall by security guards as the rest of the crowd continued to belt out the William Blake classic, the Mail reports. After being hoofed out of the historic venue the Leavers unfurled their banner on the pavement outside with one activist saying: "We just wanted to make our point on behalf of 17.4million people, we queued up early and got in." The BBC said the reason they were removed was because their flag was too big rather than pro Brexit. Remainers were also accused of "hijacking" Last Night of the Proms by waving EU flags during the quintessentially British event. The flag stunt was organised by an anti-Brexit campaign group but many BBC viewers condemned...

    Former President Barack Obama will deliver a harsh assessment of President Donald Trump from the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia Wednesday night.    There, he'll vouch for his 'friend' and 'brother,' former Vice President Joe Biden, while casting President Donald Trump as a man who has never taken his job seriously or done it well.   'He’s shown no interest in putting in the work, no interest in finding common ground, no interest in using the awesome power of his office to help anyone but himself and his friends,' Obama will say in remarks to the virtual Democratic National Convention.
