    The prospect of a nuclear strike on Britain has never seemed more real, with Vladimir Putin and his henchmen threatening to obliterate London and other Western capitals in the latest escalation of the Ukraine war. On Sunday, Russian state TV aired threats by Andrey Gurulyov, a member of the State Duma. Taking particular issue with the UK, he called it ‘the root of all evil’ and suggested that it could be turned into a ‘Martian desert’ by Russian nukes. Putin himself warned that ‘this is not a bluff’, seemingly willing to risk precipitating Armageddon with bombs that would set the sky alight with the blaze of a thousand suns. Millions would be incinerated instantly and even for those who escape the initial blast or the ensuing radiation fallout, there would be little hope of survival. As firestorms rage, great clouds of toxic smoke would rise into the atmosphere, blocking the sun’s rays and causing a severe cooling of the planet. This would kill crops and cause a global famine that would last for many years. In a world where emaciated...

    Media outlets misidentified comedian Ali Wong’s husband Justin Hakuta as actor Randall Park in a story about Wong announcing a divorce from her husband.

    EAST ORANGE, N.J. — Residents near a small neighborhood park in New Jersey awoke early this month to the roaring sound of heavy machinery: A grassy field they had been begging officials to fix for years was finally getting a face-lift. Then they learned of the details. The field and more than a dozen trees lining Columbian Park in East Orange, a densely packed city in northern New Jersey, were being bulldozed to make way for an artificial turf football and baseball field and a rubberized running track. Plans also call for a playground and stationary exercise equipment, as well as 40 new saplings. Many of the nearby residents whose yards are directly adjacent to the park were furious, joining their counterparts in a growing number of towns throughout the state and country who are trying to block the use of a product that was once coveted as an all-weather replacement for harder-to-maintain grass fields. Elsewhere in New Jersey, similar battles over turf fields are playing out in Maplewood, Westfield and Princeton. In Connecticut, some towns, worried about the potential...
    A FAKE taxi driver kidnapped a terrified woman in a bid to sexually assault her after she got into her car. Isaac Mabwa, 33, drove his victim, 25, around London for an hour and a half as she tried to escape. 1Isaac Mabwa drove his victim around London for an hour and a half before driving to a car park in 2017Credit: Met police The predator had stopped on the Euston Road in the early hours of May 8, 2017, and offered to give her a lift home after a night out.

    A Hudson Valley woman who worked at an area doctor's office has been arrested for allegedly illegally issuing narcotic prescriptions to multiple patients. Dutchess County resident Alison Albertson, age 53, of Hyde Park, was arrested on Wednesday, Aug. 4, following a yearlong investigation. The joint probe was conducted by the Dutchess County Drug Task Force and the US Drug Enforcement Administration, said Frank Tasciotti, assistant director of the task force. Alberson was employed for several years as an office assistant at the Office of Dr. Anthony Sarayno located on Alexander Drive in the Town of Hyde Park. In the fall of 2020, the task force was alerted to Albertson illegally issuing narcotic prescriptions to multiple patients and an investigation was opened. During the investigation, the task force was able to identify multiple prescriptions that were issued illegally to multiple patients, which Albertson was responsible for sending electronically to local pharmacies without the knowledge of the doctor, Tasciotti said.  Alberton was charged with three counts of criminal impersonation of a licensed physician. She was issued an appearance ticket and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date. The task force...
    Not everyone likes making a scene. It’s not uncommon for people to choose Disney World as the place to propose to their significant other at. While it can provide amazing backdrops for the big moment, the park is also usually full of large crowds, which may be a turn-off for some. Of course, for others, that makes it the perfect place to pull a prank on their significant other. @kelly_kirb we were already engaged so he knew he could get away with this.

    Enlarge Image A Facebook event with about 70.000 attendees called for a giant outdoor festival, breaching current Covid-19 lock-down measures in Brussels, Belgium, on April 1, 2021. ZUMA Press Police in Belgium deployed tear gas and water cannons on thousands of people who gathered in a Brussels park for an April Fools’ party, which was jokingly advertised as a Daft Punk reunion concert. Some 20,000 accepted a social media invite for the party, and up to 5,000 revelers actually showed up for the foolish party — even though the event planners had said the invitation was a hoax. Hundreds of cops used riot tactics to disperse the crowd as many partiers pumped their fists and chanted “freedom,” and threw bottles and rocks at police equipment. “We are all depressed. I’ll be 18 in two weeks, we want to take advantage of our youth,” high school student Amelie said. “We came not to annoy the police, but to show that we also have a life and want to enjoy it.” At least five people were injured, including three...

    He had wrinkles on his face, horn-rimmed glasses perched on his nose and wisps of gray hair poking out from underneath his Cleveland Indians baseball cap. He was even wearing a facial mask to guard against the spread of the coronavirus. The only problem is that the driver’s “passenger” was not real. It was a mannequin used to sneak into the carpool lane of the 210 Freeway in Glendora last week, authorities said. A California Highway Patrol officer stopped the pair traveling in a Toyota Tacoma near the Grand Avenue exit about 4 p.m. on Feb. 19, said Officer Rodrigo Jimenez, a spokesman for the agency’s Baldwin Park station. While it’s not unheard of for people to use mannequins to try to skirt traffic laws, Jimenez said, the officer was impressed by the lengths the driver had gone to make the fake passenger appear real. “It had the hat, glasses, sunglasses in the shirt pocket, the work boots, the whole thing,” Jimenez said. “It was even wearing a mask.” The officer snapped a photo, which was uploaded to...
    A FAKE car park attendant reportedly swindled Bristol Zoo visitors out of money for 20 years. A fraudster reportedly got away with the scam for two decades before taking his fortune and vanishing abroad. 3A popular myth said a fake car park attendant collected money from Bristol Zoo visitorsCredit: SWNS:South West News Service 3Details unearthed by a research group seem to explain where the myth came fromCredit: SWNS:South West News Service At the time, Bristol Zoo believed the man was working for the council, while the local authority believed he worked for the zoo. Bristol Zoo have consistently said this is not true, but a research group has now tried to explain where the urban myth came from. Campaign group Downs for People has always objected to the zoo using the nearby Downs as an extra car park. The group has said that some people would make their way onto the Downs and collect voluntary donations from visitors but nobody knows where the money went. During their research, they also found the name of a man, Mr S W Barrett,...
    THE makers of Bridgerton have worked out a fool-proof way to never have to fight over stately homes again – build your own. Just a day after I told how bosses on the Netflix series were trying to book the exact same properties as rival show The Crown, causing potential headaches, I’m told producers have taken matters into their own hands. 15Netflix are building replicas of Bridgerton House (filmed at Ranger’s House in Greenwich) and other setsCredit: Alamy 15It comes after war broke out between Bridgerton and The CrownCredit: Splash News Shondaland, the US production firm behind Bridgerton, has applied for planning per-mission to build a major new set near Ascot, Berks. Documents filed to the local council show they want to construct a replica Mayfair road, including swanky residences Bridgerton House — home to heroine Daphne — and Featherington House, a shopping arcade, a tea house and a back alley. Where they are asking to build them is certainly appropriate — it’s on land rented at Prince Andrew and Fergie’s former marital home, the Sunninghill Park Estate. What’s more,...
    Now that New York Mayor Bill De Blasio is tearing the Trump name off of two ice skating rinks, a carousel, and a golf course, it’s time for Governor Andrew Cuomo to rid the Empire State of a monument to Trump’s chicanery: the “Donald J. Trump State Park” in Mahopac, about an hour north of New York City. Donald J. Trump State Park is, appropriately enough, not a park. If you try to visit it—I have—you’ll only find a parking lot and some utterly unremarkable woodland with a few paths (no signs or markers) that hikers have worn down over the years. There are also the remains of a few abandoned structures, but don’t go inside—they’re full of asbestos. What you will find, however, are massive signs on both sides of the Taconic State Parkway blaring about “Donald J. Trump State Park.” That’s right—there’s no Trump park, only signs advertising the Trump park. The perfect metaphor for Trump himself.
    FILE PHOTO: Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Reuters Russian pranksters trolled Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by pretending to be Greta Thunberg.  While posing as Thunberg in the 10-minute call, the pranksters talked of political crisis, Prince Harry and Megan Markle, and asked to meet characters from South Park. The comedians, Vovan and Lexus, pulled off similar pranks on Elton John, and the presidents of France and Turkey.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Russian comedians landed a call with Canada's prime minister Justin Trudeau, in which they pretended to be the teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg.  During the call, which was released by the pranksters Vovan and Lexus this week, the pranksters posing as Thunberg expressed concerns about a coming "world war."   "It already leads to disaster," the comedians said. "It's very scary." The prime minister responded: "Yes indeed."  The Guardian reported that the 10-minute call was made in January, soon after the Iranian government shot down a Ukrainian jet. The woman who was speaking in the call, pretending to be Thunberg, talked mostly about tensions...
    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is the latest politician to be tricked by Russian pranksters pretending to be Greta Thunberg — only catching on when they asked to meet two fictional “South Park” characters. Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov — a duo known as Vovan and Lexus — posted audio on Monday of someone pretending to be the teen activist getting through to the leader and chatting for 10 minutes. “I understand that you have a lot of work and not so much time to talk to young girl,” the fake Thunberg told him in an exaggerated accent — saying she was alarmed at the “growing international crisis and the anticipation of the third world war.” “You are adults but you act like childrens,” the prankster said, telling him to not “play war.” “Leave NATO, drop your weapons, pick flowers, smile at nature,” the over-the-top impersonator implored the Canadian. Trudeau replied that he “also dreams of a world in which soldiers are not necessary,” saying, “But we don’t live in that world — yet — unfortunately.” Throughout the call, Trudeau...
    “Fred Sassy is an American Consumer Advocate and reporter for the Cheyenne news at 9, a local TV station in Cheyenne, WY. On his weekly show, Sassy Justice, Fred goes to battle for the common man in his hometown. This week, he’s uncovering the dangers behind manipulated videos that are increasingly popping up on the internet.” Or is he? The description above is taken from the YouTube page of Fred Sassy, but the least amount of research informs the viewer that the deep fake warning is actually made form deep faked videos themselves. The genius “through the looking glass” creation comes from the minds behind South Park, Trey Parker, and Matt Stone, who have created a YouTube series based on the fictional reporter to warn Americans of the perils of deep fakes. Oh, and Fred Sassy is a deep fake of President Donald Trump. In the event you are unaware, a deep fake video is one that looks very real, but through digital manipulation puts words in the mouths of public personalities and political officials in a remarkably convincing...
    A Cliffside Park lawyer scammed lenders out of $9M in COVID-related loans by creating records for bogus businesses he claimed to control, then spent the money on a $1 million home in Cresskill and millions more in stock market investments, authorities charged. Jae H. Choi, 48, “fabricated the existence of hundreds of employees, manipulated bank and tax records, and falsified a driver’s license on the applications,” U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said. Choi told the lenders that he paid $3 million in monthly wages to hundreds of employees in the non-existent companies, Carpenito said. Lenders, in turn, gave him $9 million in federal COVID-19 emergency relief funds meant for distressed small businesses, the U.S. attorney said. Choi used the money to buy a house in Cresskill, pay for $30,000 in remodeling and other improvements and invest millions more in the stock market through an account held in the name of his spouse. Carpenito said. The federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, enacted in late March, is designed to provide emergency financial assistance to millions of Americans suffering economic...
    Famed Park Avenue plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Jacono is dealing with a multitude of imposters who are pretending to be him on social media, catfishing his patients to wire money — and even carrying out consultations. The pretenders have been trolling Jacono’s Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp accounts, then getting the e-mail addresses of his followers, who believe they’re talking to the real Jacono. The imposters then bill them for advance deposits for surgeries, demanding payment through an online portal. This week, a deceived patient sent one charlatan a 20 percent deposit of $20,000 to secure a face-lift. Jacono told Page Six, “It is unbelievable how bad this has become. This isn’t just one person; it is dozens of imposters.” Jacono explained, “They create fake accounts of me on Instagram and then reach out to my followers to catfish them. The imposters are even setting up fake consultations by phone, asking for deposits for procedures to be wired to secret accounts.” Plus, he added, “the second Instagram takes down a fake account, another one pops up. The situation is so...
