    A couple who resides on a sailboat and travels the world full-time has shared the ups and the downs of living at sea - which includes not having any time away from one another, often fearing for their lives, and struggling to make ends meet. Ryan Ellison, 40, and Sophie Darsy, 35, had been dating for three months when they decided they wanted to say goodbye to their lives on the land to move into a sailboat together. They purchased a 40-foot boat for $95,000 in 2016, which they nicknamed the Polar Seal, officially set sail in 2018, and have been living on it ever since. Now, four years later, the pair has shared the highs and lows of residing on a boat, with Ryan and Sophie explaining to Insider during a recent interview that although they have 'more lows than highs,' the highs are 'so high' that it 'makes the life worth it.'

    Meadows' memoir The Chief's Chief was released for sale on Tuesday Former President Donald Trump told his then-Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to 'bust some heads and make some arrests' when Black Lives Matter activists were protesting outside the White House in Lafayette Square in June 2020, Meadows wrote in his new book. The demonstrators were cleared for Trump's now-infamous photo op holding a Bible in front of St. John's Episcopal Church. US Park Police and National Guard troops violently dispersed peaceful protesters blocking Pennsylvania Avenue using tear gas and mounted officers, allowing Trump, Defense Secretary Mark Esper, Attorney General Bill Barr and Joint Chiefs Chair General Mark Milley and others to pass through.  Ivanka Trump reportedly came up with the stunt that day, but according to Meadows, Trump had already been agitated that protesters were blocking the street in front of the White House. In his new memoir out Tuesday, titled The Chief's Chief, Meadows wrote that Trump 'was growing anxious' after 'he had given an order for the park to be cleared, and it was not being followed.'...
    Ben Domenech criticized Democrats' policies through the pandemic, saying, "the left is using the pandemic to make permanent the lives they want you to lead" on "Fox News Primetime." BEN DOMENECH: The Left is using the pandemic to make permanent the lives they want you to lead. We’ve seen churches closed under the guise of preserving life. Neighbors reporting on each other under the guise of unity. "We're all in this together," so long as we all stay in our homes and don't socialize. Teachers Unions are the most powerful political entities in American life, to the point of wrecking the lives of their students if the teachers don’t want to work. Local small businesses have to close, but Walmart can stay open. And don’t forget, Fauci knows best, parents. If you disagree with any unelected bureaucrat, even if it conflicts with what they said mere days earlier, you must hate science and you’re putting your kids and everyone else at risk. What connects all of these things? What draws them together, besides that they draw us apart? Why is...
    ANY mum will tell you that there are occasions when you just have to pull rank and be a ‘mean mum’ if it means getting your kids to behave.

    Over the course of the next decade humans will integrate more with technology to 'upgrade' our lives including brain chips and exoskeletons, a new report claims. Produced by dentsu, a Japanese advertising and PR firm, the report looks at ways the world could change over the next 10 years and the impact on global brands. 'As brands assess the impact of a seismic year and look to chart a new path to recovery, these trends provide them with a roadmap for the next decade,' the firm wrote in the executive summary to the report. One key area of change will be the continued rise of the 'synthetic society' as people increasingly incorporate the latest technology into their lives.  The study suggests people could even use brain chips to aid memory and exoskeletons to make us faster and stronger.  One key area of change will be the continued rise of the synthetic society, using brain chips to aid memory and exoskeletons to make us faster and stronger Dentsu predict there will be a number of 'key events' over the...

    IN the 1990s I was secretary-general for the International Society For Human Rights in the UK.  I would never have thought then that I would have to make basic humanitarian demands of the British Government.  ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 3 3 In the hysteria of Covid-19, that’s the way it’s heading.  I’ve set up campaign group Recovery to give a voice to the scientists, business leaders, artists and staff in the NHS who believe the Government’s approach to tackling coronavirus is wrong. But when they speak out they have been smeared and attacked — often just for questioning laws rushed through ­Parliament.  In the second wave of the virus, we have seen that only a small number of under-40s have died of Covid-19 yet we are potentially facing another national lockdown.  PUBLIC INQUIRY All deaths are tragic and I would never want to minimise the pain caused by losing a loved one of whatever age.  But we want to preserve balance in our approach to this disease and minimise the damage...
    (CNN)It started with a sticker.American golfer Kirk Triplett showed up at this year's Senior Players Championship in Ohio with the Black Lives Matter logo on his bag. A gesture that gained widespread attention -- especially when social media swept into action."People are speaking out and saying very positive things. Thanks for standing up, thanks for saying something," Triplett told CNN Sport. "We really appreciate your story and getting some of these anecdotal stories from people both White and Black about experiences that they've had and the more of those kind of things that we hear and that we share, I think the better we all understand each other. "So for me overall, I've been kind of surprised and feel pretty good about that the outreach and the things that people have told me."Kirk Triplett poses with his golf bag, along with the Black Lives Matter sticker.

    Time and again we have seen bills pushed to control the ability of women of color to make our own reproductive health decisions, from when to become pregnant and raise children to creating more obstacles to abortion access. We heard the horrific news that immigrant women were being forced to have hysterectomies — and over the past year, bans on abortion have swept the nation. Let’s be clear: This is all part of a political agenda to deny autonomy to women of color. We are told when we can and can’t have kids, and what kind of health care we are allowed to get. This is all while people ignore the very real plight that Black women are facing when we seek to try to have healthy pregnancies. Black women are dying in childbirth at the same time I hear lawmakers talk about how much they value life. Where is the care for the lives of Black women when it comes to Breonna Taylor, who was gunned down by police, or Deidre Johnson, a 35-year-old woman in Colorado...
    Maybe you don't like politics with your beer. Or maybe you think small businesses should stay above the ideological fray so that they don't alienate one group of potential customers while catering to another. It's an understandable take, but one that really isn't possible anymore in a country that is now truly divided. Even the simplest choices — such as what organization to donate money to or whether or not to support the Black Lives Matter movement or enforce mask rules — can have repercussions. So, with that "damned if you do, damned if you don't" environment as the background, a few breweries are putting politics on tap. Others are simply encouraging people to vote, including Arvada's Luki Brewery, which is offering people the chance to vote on the style characteristics for its yet-to-be-brewed Democracy IPA, which will be released on November 3 — election day. (Hurry, though, because voting on the beer ends tomorrow, October 14). "We are...days away from the very last chance to raise your hand and add your voice to the collective opinion of where we as...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Black Lives Matter movement has been growing over the last couple of months, but members of the deaf community now want their message to be heard. They’re reminding the community and the movement that just because they can’t hear, doesn’t mean they don’t matter. Pittsburgh artist, writer, and director – Emmai Alaquiva says the idea came from his 8-year-old daughter. “When I explained to her what was going on, she understood the magnitude that Black Lives Matter, so she began making these signs around the house – BLM here, BLM there,” he said. “One day she said, ‘dad, there’s no one doing sign language at these protests, what’s going on?'” With that, Alaquiva got to work. He collaborated with his team and others to do what he described as “giving truth to power.” The end result was the one-minute public service announcement “Unspeakable.” “It really inspired me to say, hey listen, we need to do what we need to do,’ what we should do to amplify voices of everybody, and particularly...
    Joshua, who retains the WBA, IBF and WBO belts, joined a march in his home town of Watford, when 3-time Wimbledon champion Becker posted on social media to display his involvement in the large rally in London. Becker, 52, donned a green encounter mask, along with a black hoodie and cap, as he mingled among the substantial chanting group in Parliament Sq.. The tennis winner, whose 1st wife of 7 several years, Barbara Feltus, experienced an African-American father, has extended spoken out from racism. “Of course there is racism in activity, for the reason that racism is portion of our society,” he explained to CNN again in 2012.

    (CNN)As the US grapples with Covid-19, its economic fallout, and the continuing anguish of racial injustice, many of us are struggling with our mental health. A Census Bureau survey found that one in three Americans are now reporting symptoms of depression or anxiety -- more than three times the rate from a similar survey conducted in the first half of 2019. Vivek MurthyAlice ChenIt is no surprise that times of crisis affect our well-being. People experience mental health challenges due to economic downturns, natural disasters or other collective traumas. The surge in Covid-19 cases earlier this year may explain why a federal crisis hotline experienced an 891% increase in calls in March compared to the same period last year. To make matters worse, a critical way for us to reduce the spread of the virus is to physically distance ourselves from others -- our family, friends, coworkers, and communities. This is exacerbating the already widespread problem of loneliness, which is deeply harmful to both our mental and physical health.The tragic deaths of Black Americans at the hands of police...
    (CNN)Republican Sen. Mitt Romney on Sunday marched in a Washington, DC, protest after the death of George Floyd in a break from other GOP lawmakers who have largely aligned behind President Donald Trump's militarized response to nationwide unrest. Romney told a Washington Post reporter that he was participating in the demonstration "to make sure that people understand that black lives matter." The Utah senator later tweeted a photo of himself at the protest with the caption "Black Lives Matter," becoming one of the most prominent GOP figures to do so. His participation comes as Republicans -- for the most part -- have backed the President following his threats to use the military on protesters and his controversial church photo-op last Monday.Black Lives Matter. pic.twitter.com/JpXUFlxH2J— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) June 7, 2020 Trump had declared himself "your president of law and order" as peaceful protesters just outside the White House gates were dispersed with gas, flash bangs and rubber bullets, after which Trump visited a nearby church. He remained at the boarded-up building for a matter of minutes before returning to the...

Community organizations are stepping up to make sure residents are can meet their basic needs through such tumultuous times.
