    Jeff Bezos has teared up as he told how his father immigrated to the US from Cuba when he was 16. The Amazon billionaire, 58, got emotional as he described Miguel 'fighting for a better life' when he left Santiago due to Fidel Castro seizing power. He said he 'had those tough experiences', adding: 'I think in every immigrant you'll find a deep optimism and a deep resilience too.' Bezos opened up about his feelings towards his father at the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Awards last week. Miguel, who adopted Bezos as his own son when he married his mother Jackie, won the award for 'embodying the heart of the immigrant story'. He moved to the US after Castro seized power in Cuba and nationalized his father's successful lumber mill business. He went to college before working for Exxon and saving up enough cash to inject $245,573 into Amazon when Bezos was setting it up.

The actor, 61, hailed both the President and the Ukrainian people for their courage as he urged the US to 'invest everything' into supporting their democracy or 'lose a legitimate memory of what America hopes to be'.

    A mother from the United States who is trapped in Afghanistan amid the U.S. troop withdrawal made an emotional plea for President Joe Biden to help her return to her children as the situation around Kabul becomes increasingly violent. The woman, who has two children in the U.S. and went by the pseudonym of "Fatima" for her safety, thanked Republican Rep. Carol Miller and her team for being "my only strength" and communicating with her to find a solution to return her to the U.S. "We are in danger. We are in danger, Mr. President. Please help us," the woman said during a Tuesday morning appearance on Fox & Friends First, adding, "Yes, we are stranded." 'RED LINE': TALIBAN WARN OF 'CONSEQUENCES' IF US KEEPS TROOP PAST AUG. 31 The plea comes just one day after White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed the notion that U.S. citizens who have yet to be evacuated from Afghanistan are stranded in the country. "First of all, I think it's irresponsible to say Americans are stranded. They are not. We are committed...
    An Afghan man who worked as an interpreter for the U.S. Special Forces for five years, talked with CNN’s Kate Bolduan about how scared he and his family were about being killed by the Taliban, begging President Joe Biden for help getting to the airport and safely out of Afghanistan in an emotional interview Thursday evening. The man was identified only as “Abdul” and spoke by phone to help protect his identity. Bolduan played an audio recording Abdul had given to a human rights attorney before beginning the interview: Why are the American soldiers forgetting about us after everything we did, the sacrifices we made? Why are they leaving us behind? I don’t want to be killed by the Taliban. They are going to cut our heads off if they find my location. Please help. “Abdul, you said that you and your family need to get out of the country immediately,” said Bolduan. “Have you been threatened by the Taliban?” Abdul confirmed that he had been threatened, in fact, earlier that very day. He described how he had gone to a...
    John and Najae take video as their daughter enters Widewater Elementary School, in Stafford, Virginia, for her first day of kindergarten. (WTOP/Neal Augenstein) The first day of kindergarten brings a jumble of emotions for parents in any year. In 2021, all the feels are intensified. Monday, John and Najae took smartphone video as their daughter was escorted into the fancily decorated Widewater Elementary School, in Stafford, Virginia. “We’re dropping off our little girl for the first day of kindergarten,” said John, “feeling the first-day jitters, placing the care of our little girl in someone else’s hands.” Najae may have had some tears in her eyes. “All the staff, they just wanted to ensure we were comfortable,” she said after watching an attentive and doting teacher walk her daughter into the building. “It’s more emotional for us, honestly, than it is for her — the baby girl’s like ‘Bye,’ and we’re like ‘No, don’t leave.'” In Stafford County schools, masks will be required for staff and children, vaccinated or not, inside schools, except during lunch, recess and gym classes — at...

Aquilino Gonell -- have shared their stories publicly before, which include accounts of being beaten with a flagpole, being the target of racist slurs, being crushed in a door and being tased by the rioters.During Tuesday's hearing, the witnesses again detailed their experiences on January 6 and stressed that many officers continue to grapple with the emotional and physical toll from that day -- a painful reality they say is only exacerbated by those who have attempted to whitewash the violence.Highlighting the importance of continued physical and mental care for officers was a priority for Dunn and Gonell, in particular, ahead of Tuesday's hearing, according to a source familiar...

    CNN’s Don Lemon opened his show Tuesday night calling for gun control after the shootings in Atlanta and Boulder. Lemon slammed a number of Republicans opposing current gun control efforts and said, “They love to talk about the Second Amendment. Love to pose with their weapons, right? Try to make it sexy. But the Second Amendment doesn’t require us to submit to a lifetime of mass carnage.” “That carnage is happening in our real life. Not their theater of the militia. Not in their role-playing… ads. Don’t play good guy with a gun for your campaign ad while Americans are dying,” he said. “Don’t play politics with our lives.” “By criticizing the Second Amendment and wondering if there are things we can do to improve the situation when it comes to guns — it doesn’t mean you’re un-American, doesn’t mean you’re anti-gun. It means you’re exercising your First Amendment. See where I’m going here? To make things better for all of your countrymen,” Lemon continued. He showed video of Senator Ted Cruz saying at an earlier hearing, “Every time there’s...

    BAD language is good for our mental health — with women just as likely as men to turn the air blue, a study found. Having a potty mouth like telly chef Gordon Ramsay helps us handle pain and problems much better. 1Swearing like telly chef Gordon Ramsay helps us handle pain and problems much better, a study has foundCredit: Getty - Contributor More than a quarter of Brits say swearing has helped them stay motivated during lockdown. Two fifths (41 per cent) admit they have sworn at themselves to boost enthusiasm. Cursing is also used to help cope with stress by more than a third (36 per cent). And a quarter (27 per cent) say it helps them feel better when they are having a bad day. Language expert Dr Emma Byrne said: “Swearing engages both sides of your brain, the language centre in the left brain and the emotional centre in the right brain, and the positive impact of this is far-reaching. “Dependent on the situation, profanity can serve as a painkiller, mood-booster or even social bonding tool....
    Rather than his team's upcoming playoff game against Dallas on Tuesday night, an emotional Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers was admittedly consumed by Sunday's police shooting of African-American man Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. 'It's amazing why we keep loving this country, and this country does not love us back,' said Rivers, a black 58-year-old son of an Illinois cop. 'It's really so sad. Like, I should just be a coach. 'I'm so often reminded of my color. It's just really sad. We got to do better. But we got to demand better.'

In a Twitter post shortly, which can be seen here, shared after the 2020 Emmy nominations were announced, Fogelman sent some “Emmy love” to nominees Sterling K. Brown, guest stars Ron Cephas Jones and Phylicia Rashad, the show’s hairstyling team led by Michael Reitz, and music director Siddhartha Khosla and collaborator Taylor Goldsmith, who were nominated for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for their original song “Memorized.” The song was performed in a flash-forward scene by an all-grown-up Jack Damon (Blake Stadnik).

    Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard is on the road to redemption. Howard was one of the most ferocious post players that the modern era had seen. He won multiple Defensive Player of the Year awards with the Orlando Magic, leading the team to an NBA Finals. He lost to his current team in those finals in 2009. Howard’s career had one of the sharpest down-swings we had ever seen for an elite player. He forced his way to the Lakers in 2012 and had a bad year. He would leave the Lakers and go to the Rockets, where a Damian Lillard three ended his championship aspirations. Dwight has since bounced around the league, and everyone assumed that this Lakers contract will be his final shot at staying in the league. He lived up to the billing and is the defensive leader of their bench unit. Howard put up a post on Instagram about his goals for Orlando. He promised himself that he will win it all if he ever came back to Orlando, and this is his chance. Los...
    Germain Lussier2 hours ago•Filed to:The Last of UsThe Last of UsThe Last of Us Part IIPlayStation 4Video GamesNaughty Dog203There’s more to The Last of Us Part II than Ellie. Image: Sony/Naughty Dog In the best possible way, The Last of Us Part II is hard. Not the overall challenge or its controls—gameplay is secondary to the emotional toll the story takes on you. It’s not a game that lets you choose what path to take: be the bad guy, be the good guy, etc. It forces you to be both and neither. To do things when you don’t want to, but also cathartically achieve moments you’ve been building toward. Depending on how you look at it, it can say a lot or nothing at all. Save for how the game actually ends (which we won’t spoil here) the biggest “spoiler” in The Last of Us Part II is that Ellie isn’t the only major playable character. Ellie, the immune girl you play as in the first game, is the main character for the first half of the game, but once Ellie’s...
    (CNN)When blind gamer Steve Saylor received an early review copy of The Last of Us Part II, one of the most anticipated video games of the year, he wasn't entirely sure what to expect.So he set up his camera, ready to record his reaction in a video for his gaming YouTube channel. But just seconds into the video, the Canadian streamer suddenly bursts into tears. "I was expecting to record a really exciting, hype moment showing the first time I see all the accessibility settings, but basically the second I started up the game, I was hearing a text to speech read off every single accessibility option. To be honest, the floodgates just kind of opened," Saylor told CNN."I couldn't stop crying for a solid 10 minutes. It was like everything I had been working for in the past five years, my efforts with disability consulting and advocating for more accessibility in games, finally paid off. This is literally the first time we have ever seen a game have this many features."Ive been reluctant to post this.I recorded my reaction...
