    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is taking on a new challenge, bridging the physical divide infrastructure has caused in America. Buttigieg joined Trevor Noah on last night’s episode of The Daily Show to discuss his agenda. “I know you made headlines when and correct me if I paraphrase you incorrectly, but I mean, you basically said that America’s roads are racist, right?” Noah began. “Not exactly what I said,” Buttigieg laughed. “…The point is, look, there are many places in the us where a road or a railroad was used to divide or segregate or even remove a neighborhood, typically a black neighborhood.” “I completely understand,” Noah replied. “The very fact that we have the phrase ‘Wrong side of the tracks’ in American English language tells you something about how infrastructure which is supposed to connect can also be used to divide, often on racial lines and we’ve gotta face that and we can do something,” Buttigieg added. When Noah pressed on the details of his plan to “right the wrongs,” Buttigieg replied, “…We’re gonna get it right. And that includes...
    THE POWER of artificial intelligence has shuttled into the sex toy industry. A male sex toy brand effectively put a smart speaker on an oral sex machine. 2The latest version of the Autoblow responds to voice commandsCredit: vieci.com 2Business owner Brian Sloan with the productCredit: vieci.com Data scientists programming the Autoblow used nearly six full days worth of pornographic footage to determine how the fleshy mechanical sleeve should operate.

The latest version runs for $229 and has six voice commands and savable experiences. The business has raised almost $800,000 in its most recent crowdfunding bid.

In light of the recent “Don’t Say Gay” bills being considered in several states across America, celebrating Pride month feels especially significant this year. The phrase “that’s so gay” has an enduring legacy of pejorative use in our modern vernacular—a linguistic trend that the founders of the canned wine brand, So Gay Rosé are reversing with everyone’s favorite summertime (OK, any time) beverage. “We’re seeing such an attack on the word ‘gay’ right now. Our philosophy is that being ‘so gay’ is something SO worth celebrating,” says So Gay Rosé co-founder and journalist Tim Chan. “To be honest, we [all] actually have a lot more in common with each other than you might think: we all just want the freedom to live our lives the way we want to; to gather with people we find community with, and to speak our minds boldly for everyone to hear. It’s not about being gay — it’s about being yourself.” Chan grew up...
    For years I considered myself a bad sleeper. It’s something I’m not very good at, like physics, cryptic crosswords and dealing with difficult trades­people. Sleep is not in my skillset.  And, understandably, there are negative connotations with this line of thinking. Like a perennial yo-yo dieter, convinced that all of life’s problems would disappear if only they were a stone lighter, I’ve spent a sizeable part of my adult life telling myself I’d be a much better mother, wife, daughter, sister, employee, boss, runner, cook and poker player if I could get that magical eight hours of uninterrupted shut-eye a night.  The truth is, since having children — both now in their 20s — I rarely get more than six hours. I can get by on four or five, as long as I haven’t drunk any alcohol the night before. I haven’t set an alarm clock for more than 25 years, apart from for early flights (when I’m usually awake anyway because I’m so nervous/excited).  I tend to sleep in batches: retiring between 10pm and 11pm and sleeping solidly until...

    GOING under the needle is a pretty big deal for most people, especially for the first time. But for one woman it couldn’t have gone much worse after her friend spotted a huge spelling mistake on her new inking. 1Can you spot the spelling mistake in this tattoo?Credit: Reddit Shared on the subreddit Bad Tattoos the pal revealed a bird design which was accompanied by a phrase underneath. However, she quickly realised that her artist had made a grammatical error. The phrase read: “In time, this to shall pass” instead of “In time, this too shall pass.” Users in the comments were quick to react to the disaster inking – labelling it “upsetting.” “The artwork and lettering is nice - shame about the spelling,” one wrote. “My grammar brain is crying” said a second.   Most read in LifestyleQUICK WIT Queen once had THIS sharp putdown when Putin left her WAITING for 14 minutesROOTING FOR YOU My husband wants to name our baby after a vegetable - he thinks it’s cuteBUMPY RIDE People think I'm fat under my clothes… they’ve...
    Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is pushing back against the politicians' "culture war," particularly over transgender policies. Blair, who once led the United Kingdom's left-wing Labour Party, said voters "don't like all this stuff that is being shoved at us" regarding the public discourse over transgender-related topics. "They [voters] don’t want a situation where women can’t talk about being women. I have this conversation quite often with Labour people, and I know their inclination is to walk round this issue, but I am telling you to go right into it and resolve it in a way that makes it absolutely clear where you stand," Blair said Friday in an interview with the Times. BORIS JOHNSON WARNS 'NEXT FEW DAYS' COULD DETERMINE RUSSIA'S PATH IN UKRAINE The former political leader also said: "Of course, we shouldn't be transphobic and we should have equal rights for trans people. But equal rights doesn't mean you can't use the phrase 'pregnant woman.'" Many organizations have taken to using the phrase "pregnant people" in an effort not to offend biological...

    IF YOU’RE tired of receiving fast-food meals that have spent a bit too long under a warming lamp, you’re in luck. A former Burger King employee revealed how to get a fresh burger each time you order from the restaurant. 3Customers can get a fresh patty each time they order from Burger King, according to a former employeeCredit: TikTok 3All you need to do is use a specific phraseCredit: TikTok John Liang, whose TikTok page is dedicated to giving followers “finance cheat codes,” acted out a potential exchange between a Burger King worker and a customer wanting a fresh patty. He said the trick is not to just ask for a fresh burger, but to say: “I would like my patty fresh off the broiler.”  “Oh, so you know the secret phrase,” John, acting as the Burger King employee, replied. “Because now instead of giving you something from the warming tray, we’re going to take a frozen patty, plop it into the broiler, and make it fresh just for you.” John added that while he never worked at Burger King,...
    NASCAR driver Brandon Brown is now being sponsored by a cryptocurrency named after the politically charged 'Let's Go Brandon' chant he unwittingly inspired, days after complaining that the phrase had cost him sponsorships.   'I'm excited to welcome @LGBcoin_io aboard my No. 68 Chevrolet Camaro as our 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series full season primary partner!' Brown announced on Twitter Thursday.  Brandon shared a glossy video of himself walking up to his red, white and blue shevy emblazoned with the LGBCoin logo.  Brown, 28, unintentionally sparked the phrase the national anti-Biden chant after NBC sports reporter Kelli Stavast confused the crowd jeering 'F*** Joe Biden' for 'Let's Go Brandon!' at a NASCAR event in Alabama on October 2. The driver spoke out last week about the effect the chant had on his professional career, saying he's hard time finding sponsors and is viewed as a ticking time bomb despite never expressing any political views, beyond disclosing that he is a Republican.  But he now appears to have warmed to his unintentional notoriety, after the phrase swept the national consciousness.  'We are proud to...
    (CNN)Jared Schmeck, a 35-year-old father in Oregon, essentially cursed at President Joe Biden during a livestreamed phone call on Christmas Eve and rightfully triggered a mini firestorm. Dean ObeidallahWith families watching a live "Santa tracker" event featuring the President and first lady Jill Biden, Schmeck called in and was one of the lucky people chosen to speak to the first family. The call began amicably enough, as Schmeck described what his young children wanted for Christmas and Joe Biden joked that the kids -- who, according to an interview with Schmeck, were listening in on the call -- had to get to bed by 9 p.m. in order for Santa to come. After both of the Bidens took turns wishing Schmeck and his family "a wonderful Christmas," the father of four responded with "Merry Christmas" followed by the coded phrase, "Let's go Brandon!" For those unaware, "Let's go Brandon" is a right-wing chant that means, "F**k Joe Biden." The origin for this phrase appears to come from a NASCAR race in early October, when a reporter misheard some in...
    A DEBATE has kicked off on social media over who should be allowed to use the phrase wagwan. But what does the phrase mean? Here's all you need to know... 1MC Big Narstie believes the problem is culture not colour What does wagwan mean?  Wagwan is a way of saying ‘what’s going on?’ in Jamaican English. It is used throughout the Jamaican diaspora especially in certain pockets of south and east London. Who can say wagwan?  Many people argue that white people should not use the phrase - but Grime MC Big Narstie believes the problem is culture not colour. He explained to BBC Three: “I've got white friends who say wagwan and they're not being fake by saying wagwan because they’ll smash your face in.

    FROM cat litter, leaves, and even rocks, the average dog owner will yell “What are you eating?!” to their pups nearly 50 times a year, according to new research. The study asked 2,000 American dog owners to reflect on their dogs’ nutritional habits – both good and bad – and found they’ve gotten into some sticky situations. 4Dog parents ask their pets what they have in their mouth over 50 times a year 4Dogs will often have garbage, socks, and children's toys in their mouthsCredit: Getty The top non-treats their pups have gotten into included socks (48 percent), garbage (47 percent), and children’s toys (44 percent) – with one respondent even sharing their dog got ahold of their toilet plunger. Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Zignature, the survey also found that the average pet owner has to remove something from their dog’s mouth about three times a month. This rings especially true for the third (34 percent) of respondents who have a dog that tries to eat anything but food. In response, 39 percent have a pup that immediately drops...
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday asserted that more than just “women” can menstruate, defending her use of the term “menstruating people.” “Not just women! Trans men & non-binary people can also menstruate,” Ocasio-Cortez exclaimed, defending her use of the term. “Some women also *don’t* menstruate for many reasons, including surviving cancer that required a hysterectomy,” she continued. “GOP mad at this are protecting the patriarchal idea that women are most valuable as uterus holders,” the New York lawmaker added, continuing to tell people to “grow up” because “trans, two-spirit, and non-binary people have always existed and will always exist”: https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1435674825557749763 Ocasio-Cortez is far from the only high-profile figure purportedly devoted to “science” to use broad terms to refer to female-only functions, such as menstruating or becoming pregnant. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), for example, provided an update for coronavirus vaccinations for pregnant women on August 11, although the federal health agency repeatedly used the phrase “pregnant people,” despite the fact that there are only two biological sexes and only females can become pregnant with a child....
    LAS VEGAS (CBS SF/AP) — Following a backlash on social media, Mark Davis, owner of the Las Vegas Raider, received thanks from the brother of George Floyd his support, which Davis expressed in a statement on Twitter after the police officer who killed Floyd was convicted.

    Las Vegas Raiders Owner Mark Davis Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images The Las Vegas Raiders sent a tweet that read "I Can Breathe" after Derek Chauvin was found guilty. The tweet drew backlash for its similarity to a phrase used for pro-police demonstration in 2014.  Raiders owner Mark Davis said he didn't know it would be offensive but also won't take it down.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The Las Vegas Raiders sent a tweet that read "I CAN BREATHE" after Derek Chauvin was found guilty of the murder of George Floyd on Tuesday. —Las Vegas Raiders (@Raiders) April 20, 2021  The tweet drew backlash for being tone-deaf and its similarity to a phrase echoed by NYPD supporters after a New York City police officer killed Eric Garner by putting him in a chokehold in 2014.

    Savannah Rychcik November 8, 2020 0 Comments House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) insists the “defund the police” expression affected some Democratic candidates’ reelection chances in this past election. He noted when the “defund the police” slogan appeared while Democratic Senate challenger Jaime Harrison appeared on TV, he “started to plateau.” “That stuff hurt Jaimie and that’s why I spoke out against it a long time ago. I’ve always said that these headlines can kill a political effort,” Clyburn said. He added, “We are all about making headway, and I just hope that going forward we will think about each one of these Congressional districts and let people represent their districts.” Check out his remarks below: WATCH on #MTP: Rep.

    Presidents become known for their words. Particular phrases seep into public memory and create the signposts of their legacy. George H. W. Bush was marked, for example, by the phrase “read my lips: no new taxes,” perhaps more for the wonky way he said it than for the fact that he didn’t deliver. Richard Nixon famously liked to repeat “let me make one thing perfectly clear,” a phrase that hangs heavily given the irony of its source. Sometimes these phrases are ominous. Lyndon B. Johnson’s legacy is haunted by the time he uttered “we still seek no wider war,” shortly before escalating the conflict in Vietnam. George W. Bush’s administration left us with many disturbing phrases, including “extraordinary rendition,” which Salman Rushdie described as an “ugly phrase that conceals an uglier truth.” Others are cringeworthy, like Bill Clinton’s famously evasive phrase, “that depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is,” said during the investigation of his relationship with Monica Lewinsky. Few presidents, though, will leave the type of linguistic legacy we can expect from the Trump years. Trump and his team will be marked by the fact that they...
