    ON momentous days, like the Queen’s funeral, you tend to swallow any reservations you may have about Auntie and watch proceedings on the BBC. Not because ITV’s coverage, fronted by the superb Julie Etchingham and Tom Bradby, will necessarily be inferior, or because the BBC’s version, fronted by Huw Edwards and Kirsty Young, will automatically be superior. 1Huw Edwards presented the BBC's superb coverage of the Queen's funeral service with minimal commentary It’s just all down to tradition. You know that if you tune into BBC1 they will bring a degree of unity, reverence and dignity to the solemn occasion. They will, however, also bring Gyles Brandreth. In fact, the former MP is practically written into the constitution these days.

    Dear Amy: My son has just started his junior year of college. I never thought he was the neatest person. My view on this changed when he went away to college and shared a two-bedroom suite with others. Compared to his suitemates, my son is neat, clean and considerate of the shared space. I am appalled by what I have seen: Beds are not made, clothes are strewn everywhere, dirty dishes are left in the sink, plates and cups are left everywhere, the table is not wiped clean, multiple pairs of shoes in the bathroom, and counter space all cluttered with everyone’s personal items, etc. Is this the way people are living? Are parents not teaching their children some basic level of cleanliness and how to share space?

Making juices, smoothies and soups at home are all convenient ways to add more fruits and vegetables into your diet but choosing a blender from the thousands available on the market can be a stomach-churning task.  With blender prices ranging from $20 to upwards of $100, it can be difficult to know which one will power your health-kick without being too pricey.

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I moved 1,500 miles last year, and have developed a wonderful circle of friends in my new town. We enjoy church activities, dining out and community activities like concerts. One member has taken on the role of coordinator, and she finds great things to do, but it’s too much for me! So far this week, she’s scheduled three concerts — with meals before and after each one — and walking at 7 every morning. How do I gracefully decline some, but not all, of these activities? GENTLE READER: One at a time, as you choose. Miss Manners supposes that when you are handed a menu at a restaurant, surely you do not feel obliged to eat everything that is listed. DEAR MISS MANNERS: I’d like to have a party for my daughter’s fourth birthday. However, I’d like to avoid getting a bunch of plastic junk that she’ll look at once and then throw in a corner and never play with. I honestly don’t think gifts are necessary, but I know many people feel obligated to bring one....
    Jim Cramer at the NYSE, June 30, 2022.Virginia Sherwood | CNBC Things sure look different from Italia! Yes, I do take vacations. And yes, they almost always lead to dramatic declines that have me called back or called in. Not this time.  This time it was a rout. An oversold rout as, once again, the S&P Short Range Oscillator got it right: We were at the outer limits of very oversold market. My favorite market indicator was at minus 7.82% on Friday after a wicked few weeks. (Anything below a minus 4% is flashing an oversold signal.) The excellent news here? We are still oversold at minus 5.78%, which is usually the sign of a powerful rally with more room to run, rather than one that is running out of gas. That's rather amazing given the proximity of the Federal Reserve's next rate-hike decision in two weeks, and a couple days from the next Consumer Price Index (CPI) release on Tuesday. The Street will is watching this key inflation indicator to figure out whether the Fed will raise interest rates...
    (CNN)Once you get past the familiar strains of Blondie's "Call Me" over the opening credits, the message from "American Gigolo" isn't worth answering. It is, rather, a misguided and distasteful reboot, seeking to tease the movie's premise into a larger mystery. Jon Bernthal struts his stuff as the escort trying to get his laugh back, but this '80s artifact should have been left in the time capsule.Adapted into series form by David Hollander, who subsequently left the project, the mix of flash and trash in and around sunny Southern California almost makes the producer's last stop for Showtime, "Ray Donovan," seem cheery and upbeat by comparison. (Nikki Toscano, of Paramount's "The Offer," took over as the showrunner.)Bernthal's Julian is released after 15 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit, and initially seems indifferent to the question of who might have framed him, despite the urgings of the detective (Rosie O'Donnell, only one of the miscast co-stars) who helped put him away."Don't you want to know what happened?" she asks.As for the then and now of it, "American Gigolo"...

    WITH a change in season comes a whole new wardrobe. And as the UK says goodbye to summer and gears up for the arrival of Autumn, a fashion guru named Louisa Bella has taken to TikTok to share the trends that she'll not be participating in. 3Fashion guru Louisa Bella revealed the wardrobe items that she'll be avoiding this AutumnCredit: tiktok/@louisa_bella 3Louisa told how she'll be steering clear of sweatsuitsCredit: tiktok/@louisa_bella In the clip, Louisa, who is from the US, begins by discussing her view on shackets. "Don't get me wrong, I have shackets myself but I'm just not excited about them," she admits. "I just think they're boring." Next up are the influencer-approved New Balance trainers. "These are just not doing it for me!" Louisa notes. She then moves on to discuss leg warmers - something which she thinks you need to be a certain age to wear. "If you're under the age of 18, I already know you're going to rock them," the fashion guru says. "But me being in my twenties, I feel like I'm too old...

    It’s not uncommon for heart attack survivors to have to take what feels like a handful of pills each day. While vital for their health, these pills can be a bit of a burden—requiring patients to take them at specific times and at a regular schedule to ensure they work effectively. That’s why the “polypill” has been a goal of drug makers for a while across many different types of ailments including HIV/AIDS. However, they haven’t been widely adopted for heart illnesses for a variety of reasons such as efficacy concerns—but some new research might just change that. In one of the largest studies involving a polypill for heart issues, researchers found that patients who took the polypill were 33 percent less likely to die than control patients from ailments like stroke, heart attacks, and other heart-related illnesses. They also found that those who took the treatment were more likely than others to keep taking it too—which is the entire idea behind the polypill. The results were published August 26 in the New England Journal of Medicine. The pill,...

Weighted blankets stepped onto the scene a few years back, being touted for their alleged anxiety-reducing and sleep-improving benefits. As a bona fide skeptic (and a chronic insomniac), I wasn’t convinced that sleeping with a 20-pound weighted blanket was going to put me to bed like a topical lullaby or even help me fall asleep fast—mainly because I assumed that all of that extra weight was going to simply make me downright sweaty—not sleepy. The theory behind weighted blankets' calming effects is predicated on the idea that the added weight on the body helps boost natural “happy” hormones like serotonin and reduces the production of cortisol (the hormone most associated with stress and our fight or flight response). Anecdotally, I had been told by several friends that their own weighted blanket had been a huge game-changer—one of which claimed theirs had helped them wean off of their prescription sleeping meds. Naturally, I was pretty curious about these so-called anti-anxiety blankets. Of course, considering...
    Lewis Hamilton conjured images of comfortable Sunday afternoons with the grandparents ahead of the Belgium Grand Prix this weekend, albeit unintentionally.  The fashion conscious Formula One ace bore a striking resemblance to a knitted tea cosy courtesy of his designer balaclava as he surveyed the track at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.  Decorated with a distinctive daisy pattern, his headgear - through which only Hamilton's eyes and nose were visible - inevitably caught the eye during the brief outing.  Don't mind me: Lewis Hamilton conjured images of comfortable Sunday afternoons with the grandparents ahead of the Belgium Grand Prix this weekend, albeit unintentionally Lewis added to his look with a colour coordinated ensemble, this time opting for a thick purple cardigan, long sleeved top and generously cut cargo pants.  Rounding off the garish look, Lewis sported a pair of rather outlandish white trainers with deep, oversized soles as he prepared for a practice run.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Megan Gale ensures all eyes are on her at the Sydney...

As someone who struggles to turn off my work brain on the weekends, working from home has further enhanced this unfortunate phenomenon. Due to this and the hundreds of other stressors brought on by the pandemic, I decided to try out CBD products for a little extra help on days that I know I need to calm down. The CBD industry is new yet already highly saturated, so it was important for me to find a quality product and company. This is why for my CBD needs, I go to the CBD connoisseur Not Pot. I first heard about Not Pot through their tongue-in-cheek social media presence. Due to an early period of the gummies being out of stock, the first thing I ever received from the company was a potato. I’m serious. They sent me a potato. And then a few months later, the gummies came. The brand makes two kinds of gummies, the original which tastes like strawberry, and one for...
    After eight years of single life, I’m looking for someone to spend time with and do nice things together. It’s not too much to ask — is it? But as I read Julie Silver’s 20 questions for a potential partner last week, I was reminded how much of a minefield dating can be. In Julie’s case, her Mr Right would prefer quinoa to chips, would be in her specially adapted inclined bed by 9.30pm each night, speak kindly of his mother, be a fan of natural cosmetics and wouldn’t have a dog. You may think she is being too ‘picky’. Yet I can tell you, it’s not just women who have a list of specific questions in mind before a first date. Single chaps like me do, too. In my case, they include establishing whether my potential Ms Right is a fan of hiking (yes please), reads in bed (ideally not) or posts pictures of her breakfast on Instagram (a definite turn-off). After one woman laid out her checklist for the ideal man, David Sanderson (pictured) bites back with his...
    It’s been a long, long time since we last saw a living thylacine—a creature more commonly known as a Tasmanian tiger. The animal once thrived as a cornerstone species throughout Tasmania for millions of years before being eradicated with the help of the Australian government, which offered a one pound bounty per dead Tasmanian tiger between 1888 and 1909 to control its population from wreaking havoc on farms. The Tasmanian tiger population dwindled rapidly. The last official sighting of the creature in the wild occurred in 1930, when it was shot by a farmer for trespassing on his land. When he did so, he inadvertently wiped the last of a species in the wild off the face of the planet forever—or so we thought. Colossal Biosciences, a biotech and genetic engineering startup co-founded by Harvard geneticist George Church, plans to “de-extinct” the Tasmanian tiger by using gene-editing technology. They hope to reintroduce the creature to its once-native habitats in order to rewild the ecosystems that were damaged after losing the species. “Colossal is excited to provide the necessary genetic...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Several days of very hot weather has led the Philadelphia Department of Public Health to declare a heat health emergency. People who Eyewitness News spoke with say they consider this to be one of the hottest summers yet. From empty spraygrounds to slow days behind the counter, the city’s heat health emergency has people running for cover from the sun.

In what feels like an endless heat wave, the city’s Office of Emergency Management says this weather is a serious matter. They warn that weather like this for two or more days can cause dehydration, heat exhaustion and heatstroke. “If you go to Florida or Nassau, that’s a tropical kind of heat,” a woman said. “This heat is like, dangerous....

But while it’s incredibly tempting to invest in countless makeup products, there’s something to be said for a palette that can do more than half the work of your whole makeup bag. And for people like me who don’t have a ton of extra cash to invest in one-trick, pricey makeup products, combination palettes like Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Edit palette are the holy grail. There are plenty of luxe beauty brands that offer combination palettes, but few of them prove to be as long-lasting and richly pigmented as Hourglass’ best-selling Ambient Lighting Edit - Sculpture palette. This relatively new product has already become a favorite among celebrities and beauty influencers alike, and it’s no surprise why. Unlike the more commonly sold three-in-one palettes that feature a bronzer, highlighter, and blush, Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Edit - Sculpture palette features six separate powders to create an ever-so a healthy, sculpted look:...
    It has become almost a fetish of late, visiting those once great American cities whose precipitous rise was followed by a slow demise, an attempt by modernity to kill them by a thousand cuts of highways, parking lots, globalism, and unfriendly buildings. But in those cities–Cleveland, Detroit, Tulsa, St. Louis, and so on–what was left behind by those heady decades at the top of the world is spectacular. Museums filled with loot and lucre from around the world, architecture that revolutionized our lives in concert halls, grand libraries, and palaces fit for kings and queens. To visit those cities is to taste what it was like visiting Rome a couple of centuries ago. Visitors wandering its sometimes dangerous streets can marvel at its wonders but for the self-centered nationalist, it led to one question–what caused their fall? While the debate about what went wrong is interesting, equally insightful is seeing a place that is getting it right. I recently found myself in Cincinnati for our series on underrated destinations, It’s Still a Big World. Like so many other mid-size American...
    This is a preview of our pop culture newsletter The Daily Beast’s Obsessed, written by senior entertainment reporter Kevin Fallon. To receive the full newsletter in your inbox each week, sign up for it here. If I were to describe my ideal night at a club—although “ideal” and “club” are not two words I would ever use in the same sentence—it would involve having pizza thrown at me by Katy Perry. (Frankly, pizza thrown at me by anyone.) My dream became some lucky revelers’ reality. A video went viral this week of the pop star at a Las Vegas party, where she was hyping the crowd up from behind the DJ booth. “What would really get them going?” it appears she thought to herself. “A beat drop? Some confetti?” No, that wouldn’t do. “I’ve got it: pepperonis in their hair.” In a sequence as thrilling as the climax of Nope, the video shows a paper plate mounted with a slice spin through the air, much like the movie’s UFO seeking its human targets. Pleased with herself, Perry winds up again,...
    After sharing the news with viewers that WNBA star Brittney Griner had been sentenced to nine years in Russian prison for “smuggling” a small amount of cannabis oil into the country, Trevor Noah declared, “This is some bullshit!” “This is bullshit,” the Daily Show host repeated. “We all know Russia doesn’t care what Brittney Griner did. This is the same country that is breaking every human rights law on the planet, but they’re like, ‘Oh, that woman has vape cartridge, she’s real criminal!’ Get the fuck outta here, man!” Noah did point out that the “one piece of good news” about Griner’s sentence is that now the Biden administration can move forward with a reported prisoner swap to bring her home. “It seems like this is just a negotiation tactic,” he said, joking that they should “just do it” because while it might seem like a win for Russia, “don’t forget, that person now has to live in Russia.” The host quickly moved on to another, far less important sports-related scandal, but not before making one more crucial point....

    Joe Rogan recently shared his take on Jordan Peterson’s Twitter ban following his dead-naming of actor Elliot Page. On the Tuesday edition of The Joe Rogan Experience, the host sat down with actor Zachary Levi to discuss his new memoir, Radical Love: Learning to Accept Yourself and Others. The topic turned to Peterson when Levi admitted that he believed him to be one of the “deepest thinkers.” “I think one of the deepest thinkers that I’ve ever heard break down like human behavior — and I don’t know, just an understanding of all that stuff and I think good wisdom along with it, is Jordan Peterson,” Levi said. He continued, “I think if he would be a person that I would trust — I think that guy has a lot of integrity and it — that would be somebody too, but I also know Jordan has his own things that people have issues with. Like I get it. Nobody’s perfect.” Rogan pointed out that Peterson was suspended from Twitter after dead-naming Elliot Page. “He’s kicked off Twitter right now,” Rogan...
    Ukrainian mud has a special kind of stickiness to it. There’s even a word for that time of the year when traveling through Ukraine is at its toughest moment: “bezdorizhzhya”, meaning “when the roads stop existing.” This is the point in the spring when the snow melts and everything turns to mud. It’s been infamously championed as “Ukraine’s secret weapon” against Russia’s tanks. Mud aside, it’s getting harder to move through Ukraine anyway. Infrastructure Minister, Oleksandr Kubrakov, said earlier this month that 25,000 kilometers of road and over 300 bridges have been destroyed in the country since Russia launched its invasion on Feb. 24. Combine that with 12.8 million people displaced in Ukraine and hostile airspace that threatens search helicopters, and the challenges in rescuing missing people are simply enormous. The country has a secret weapon in store to get around the problem—a land vehicle that’s quietly at the forefront of humanity’s last frontiers. And in Kanye’s garage. Meet the Search & Rescue Utility Terrain Vehicle developed by SHERP, a Ukrainian-based, amphibious utility vehicle manufacturer that is rolling over every...
    ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — None of the golfers who have opted to join the Saudi-funded breakaway series know if they will be allowed to keep playing at the sport’s four biggest events. Talor Gooch is preparing himself for that outcome. The 30-year-old American, who drew a lot of stick from his fellow players for comparing the atmosphere at the LIV Golf series to the Ryder Cup, shot a 3-under 69 on Friday in the second round on the Old Course at the British Open, taking him to 7 under overall. “I mean, it would be a cool one to go out on. Hopefully not, though,” Gooch said, adding he and former college teammate Wyndham Clark were discussing the situation over the last few days. “I’d like to think that the majors would like to have the best players in the world playing in their events in spite of everything that’s going on, but obviously that’s not up to me. “Hopefully this won’t be my last one.” On Wednesday, R&A chief Martin Slumbers spoke about the LIV series and threatened...
    There are numerous ways to make a smoothie and a variety of ingredients you can use. If you’ve been drinking all your smoothies up until now, I’d like to introduce you to my favorite way to make a smoothie and how I insist on making all of mine. Who doesn’t love to sit down to a thick, frosty bowl of sorbet or a thick, creamy bowl of vegan ice cream, right? Well, my philosophy is, why not take that same enjoyment and add it to your smoothies? I’ve been eating my smoothies since the first day I started making them, and the trick to making your smoothies “eatable” is to make them incredibly thick, so there’s no way possible you could get them through a straw or drink them out of a glass, even if you wanted to. Not only is it more enjoyable to eat thick, frosty smoothies, but it’s also better for your digestion. Think about it: digestion starts in the mouth when we chew our food, which is when salivary enzymes are produced and released to...
    There’s a scene in Shrek where Princess Fiona, after waking from her serene slumber, battles an army of weapon-clad forest men looking to steal her away. This was not the princess archetype we’d come to expect in the early 2000s. Here was a beautiful woman who, though she was saved by an ogre, could fend off injustices with her own two fists. The scene was fun, Fiona continued to surprise audiences with new depth of character, and Shrek won us all over. Now, imagine that one fight scene lasted an entire hour and a half. Lose all of the Donkey humor from Shrek, drop the onions, the enemies-to-lovers romance, and all of the Gingie goodness. If you wanted a movie of just Princess Fiona battling enemies for her own freedom, though I don’t know why anyone would, look no further than The Princess. A princess fighting for her independence, laced with kickass fight scenes and brutal weapons, is a good starting place. The Princess just can’t make it any further than the baseline, spiraling into a video-game version of what...
    You ever look at your paystub and get depressed? Am I only one who sees my paycheck deductions and feels like I'm not getting my money's worth for the government services provided? Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying we shouldn't pay taxes. I'd like to think any good citizen would be happy to contribute to a healthy functional society. I just feel like I'm not getting my money's worth. Especially when I know the ridiculously wealthy, the true welfare queens, are not contributing 33% of their incomes in the years they even pay income taxes at all. When I look at my depleted stubs, analyze the deductions and see the job that my city, state and federal governments are doing with those funds, I can't help but think the juice ain't worth the squeeze. Let's talk about basics — roads and bridges. I have traveled to countries where some roads are left incomplete — as in, you are driving on the highway and then the highway just stops — so I appreciate the infrastructure we do have...
    Pro golfer Pat Perez is one of the first to admit that he quit the PGA Tour and joined the new LIV league because it is paying him more money. Perez drove the point home by wearing a shirt that featured a print of $100 bills Tuesday night at the LIV Golf Invitational Series welcome dinner in Portland, Oregon, the New York Post reported. But the 46-year-old pro also directly addressed the issue in comments that night. “For me, it’s real simple. I’m 46. I’ve played 515 events. I’ve been on the road since 1998. I’ve been on the road longer than Matt Wolff has been alive. I have an almost 4-year-old. I missed my son’s birth last year,” Perez told the media. “The bottom line is I’m tired of being on the road every day, and I don’t have to do it now. This opportunity [is] like winning the lottery for me,” he added. Brooks Koepka also commented this week on his decision to jump from the PGA Tour to the Saudi-backed LIV league and, like Perez, said that...
    You're reaping what you sowed on this one, Sen. Collins. Sen. Susan Collins, ostensibly one of two Republicans who support abortion rights in the Senate, is of course very concerned that the radical Supreme Court has just ended a federal guarantee of abortion rights in the United States, and is very disappointed that the nominees she voted for did this thing. Because, gosh, none of us could have foreseen that Lyin’ Brett Kavanaugh, who lied in two separate confirmation processes, was not being honest with her. x Susan Collins: “This decision is inconsistent with what Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh said in their testimony and their meetings with me, where they both were insistent on the importance of supporting long-standing precedents that the country has relied upon."— Igor Bobic (@igorbobic) June 24, 2022 Collins didn’t vote for Amy Coney Barrett. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell let her off the hook on that one because he didn’t need her. He made Lisa Murkowksi do it.  Contribute now to support abortion funds providing financial assistance to people seeking abortion care. When Collins stood on...
    Because hurricanes are rare in Quebec, they can strike the imagination when they destroy cities. We see the magnitude of the damage at the heart of these disasters and the increased risks to public safety. When events like this occur, a question arises: Will Quebec cities be more vulnerable in the coming years? Breakdown of chapters When we analyze the spread of the hurricane found in Quebec, we find that it is equal. They are often born in natural landscapes, much like the Moscow hurricane. The mother cell formed east of Mirabell and intensified into a hurricane before destroying the Moscow district. The wind blew at a speed of 200 km per hour at a speed of three kilometers per 15 minutes, causing significant damage. That day, his father, Jack LeBeau, took refuge in his barn. Unfortunately, he lost his life there after being swept away by the hurricane. Intense hurricanes in urban areas have increased in recent years. In Gatineau, in 2018, 25 people were injured, in addition to significant damage. In 2009, Mont-Laurier was attacked at...
    VIDEO2:5902:59Are foreclosures coming? Here are the mortgage market red flagsSquawk Box As quickly as mortgage rates are rising, the once red-hot housing market is cooling off. Home prices are still historically high, but there is concern now that they will ease up as well. All of this has people asking: Is today's housing market in the same predicament that it was over a decade ago, when the 2007-08 crash caused the Great Recession? The short answer is: no. America's housing market is in far better health today. That's thanks, in part, to new lending regulations that resulted from that meltdown. Those rules put today's borrowers on far firmer footing. For the 53.5 million first lien home mortgages in America today, the average borrower FICO credit score is a record high 751. It was 699 in 2010, two years after the financial sector's meltdown. Lenders have been much more strict about lending, much of that reflected in credit quality. Home prices have soared, as well, due to pandemic-fueled demand over the past two years. That gives today's homeowners record amounts of...
    At age 15, more than 3,000 miles from his family, David Ojabo found comfort in food. At Blair Academy in New Jersey, not much connected Ojabo to his roots. But at the boarding school, he’d met a friend whose parents, like his, are descendants of the Igbo people in southeastern Nigeria. The friend, Odafe Oweh, said that connection made them family. Before long, Ojabo found himself being treated to homemade Nigerian dishes, hand-delivered by Oweh’s parents from over an hour away. “All he ate was Nigerian food,” Oweh said of Ojabo, who spent the first seven years of his life in Nigeria, moved to Scotland and then traveled to the United States with his family’s blessing early in high school. “He had no one else who was Nigerian that he knew. He asked me if my parents could bring him some stuff, and that’s where it kind of started.” That was just the beginning for Ojabo and Oweh. Five years later, their parallel paths — basketball standouts turned football prospects who captivated college recruiters and NFL scouts alike — would...

    New York (CNN Business)A Japanese company has built a four-legged, rolling robot that looks vaguely like a centaur — boasting two arms with claw-like hands, an arachnid-esque abdomen and two bulging cameras for eyes — and is designed to transverse the surface of the moon.The robot, called the R1, was designed and built by GITAI in partnership with the Japanese space agency, JAXA. A recent test run, carried out at a JAXA facility that mimics lunar dirt, shows the robot roving around the bumpy terrain on its four wheels, unpacking a series of parts using clamp-like hands and cinching together the base structure for a solar panel.The R1 is one of several robots that GITAI has developed for various purposes. The company's goal is to take its tech to the actual lunar surface sometime in the mid-2020s, according to its website. The robot also ran through a few additional exercises meant to test how well it can traverse bumpy terrain, hills and potentially collect a lunar regolith sample. The footage, which is sped up to 15x normal speed — giving...
    A COIN that contains penny and nickel features has sold for more than $150 online.  The piece in the eBay auction isn’t like the other valuable ones.  1The error coin contains features of both Jefferson and penny designs Oftentimes, coins get their rarity from low mintage, or grade and condition.  But the one that sold features an iconic error, which even has the seller confused because the coloring makes it appear as a penny, yet all the other elements indicate it’s a Jefferson nickel.  “I guess I'd have to call this a penny,” the seller wrote in the description. “It is a clad cent planchet (not copper) with the impressions of a 2012 Jefferson Nickel both obverse and reverse.”  READ MORE ON COINSCOINING IT One of the rarest Lincoln pennies in existence sells for $2,025 onlineCOIN TREASURE Rare VDB Lincoln penny sells for $1,300 in auction - how to spot one Likewise, this is a planchet mint error, which is also known as a double denomination. “Planchet errors encompass all mistakes resulting from a defective blank, whether or not it has passed through the upsetting mill,” coin...
    (CNN)Intense summer heat will build as the week rolls on, peaking with potentially deadly heat in the drought-stricken West this Friday. Temperatures will rise above 100 degrees, reaching or breaking records in many areas. Meteorologists like Chris Kuhlman, from the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Phoenix, recommend people stay indoors. "It's going to be hotter than what we've seen any time this year so far," Kuhlman told CNN Weather. "We're tacking on another probably 10 degrees, so it's definitely going to be hot." Heat waves are the deadliest type of weather disaster in the US. They account for nearly 150 fatalities per year, more than hurricanes and tornadoes combined. "This heat will impact everyone, not just those sensitive to heat risk," the National Weather Service in Sacramento emphasized in a tweet.

    For American kids, the allure of a swimmable body of water never really dissipates, even as we age. Nowhere is this more evident than in New York City, where, as the summer heat arrives, adults are beginning to fight tooth and nail for access to a commodity more precious than gold: a hotel pool pass. This year, the need began to present itself in the last weekends of May, when temperatures in the 90s drove city-dwellers to the Far Rockaways and Jacob Riis Park in droves. I myself made the hour-and-a-half journey on a Saturday to lay out on the sand and read Empire of Pain, flipping over every once in a while to procure an even tan, but by the long subway ride home, I was thoroughly exhausted. There had to be a better way. Diligent pool research is a necessity at present, particularly due to a national lifeguard shortage that could render one third of U.S. community pools unusable this summer. In New York City, where temperatures frequently rocket into the region of unbearable, this...
    (CNN)Olympic distance runner Alexi Pappas describes herself as an "extremely motivated person," and it would be difficult to disagree. She is not only a professional athlete, but a filmmaker, actress and writer who lives with her husband Jeremy and their pug Bernini in Los Angeles. Her social media is overflowing with photos of herself sporting colorful outfits from her sponsor, Champion, in scenic places from the mountains of Colorado to the beaches in Greece, each one captioned with a poem she wrote herself. She comes across as bubbly, positive, creative, energetic ... and all of those descriptors are true. Yet Pappas also happens to battle clinical depression. "Just like when you fall down and break a bone and your bone can heal over time, you can almost fall down and have a metaphorical scratch on your brain," Pappas tells CNN. Read MoreShe firmly believes in the concept that mental health and physical health are one and the same. "The brain really is a body part and it can get injured just like any other body part, and it can heal...
    Scouted selects products independently. If you purchase something from our posts, we may earn a small commission. I enjoy collecting old records. I’m a hipster, I’m vintage, I’m different—say what you will, but I love vinyl. There was, however, a certain missing quality in my curated music set-up until recently. Frankly, it’s sort of lame to have all the coolest records you could find at the flea market or vintage store and not have a decent sound system to play them on. Until a month or so ago, I’d had my bottom shelf $50 Victrola record player for years. You know, the 1930’s looking one with Vinyl, CD, Tape, FM/AM, and Bluetooth capability—just like our grandparents had (OK, minus the Bluetooth.) I’ve actually bought the same one, twice. The first one broke almost immediately and the second one… well, she wasn’t looking like she was going to make it either. I had a lot of problems with my standard, low-tier record player, but I put up with them because I figured it would cost hundreds of dollars to upgrade my...
    SUMMERS for parents can be bittersweet: the temperature warms up, which means spending more time with their kids outside, but school is also out and that means coming up with ways to keep them busy. Comedians and relatable parenting gurus, Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley, from #IMomSoHard have shared how they keep their own kids entertained for super cheap. 2Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley shared how to make sure your kids stay busy and entertained all summer longCredit: Instagram/imomsohard Speaking exclusively to The US Sun, the two talked about how you don't really need to spend too much money on keeping the kids busy during the summer simply because it's pointless. Kids will actually spend plenty of time playing with the cheapest of toys. "Growing up, our parents weren't worried about how to keep us entertained, like there's a hose outside, go have fun," Smedley first said with a laugh. "We don't want you inside, just go outside and play," Hensley added, pretending to be one of her own parents. Read More Parenting StoriesGET SOME SHUTEYE I'm a parenting expert...
    (CNN)Sports, it's been said, reveals character. It also reveals something else: philosophy.There's no better example of this than Rafael Nadal, the 35-year-old professional tennis player who's competing this week at the French Open. Nadal is not just a gladiator on the court -- he's a philosopher at heart.You may know Nadal's tennis credentials. The Spaniard has won a record 21 Grand Slam titles and 13 French Open tournaments. He's revolutionized the sport with his ferocious topspin forehand, his freakish strength and his relentless drive. He is arguably the greatest male tennis player ever.But it is Nadal's mind that may separate him from his greatest rivals. His ability to play with physical pain, to come back from devastating injuries, to problem-solve during a match -- all are part of his greatness. So is his attitude -- his visceral delight in competing, whether he wins or loses. He also has a rare philosophical approach to tennis and life that one sportswriter described as a "model of humility, empathy and perspective." Read MoreIt turns out that Nadal, who may be playing in his...
    (CNN)The op-ed below contains mild spoilers for "Top Gun: Maverick.""Top Gun: Maverick" may well be the box-office hit of the year, thanks to a perfect storm of circumstance. It's Memorial Day weekend; people are feeling a tiny bit more adventurous; everyone needs an escape from the horrors of the real world; and... Tom Cruise. Sara Stewart Cruise, one of our last bona fide Movie Stars, is the one who reportedly insisted that this movie, shot back in 2019, not be released on a streaming platform. And damn, was he right. This glorious blockbuster demands to be seen on the biggest possible screen, and hold on to your popcorn, because the for-real aerial stunts must be experienced in high definition to be believed. (The academic dean of the Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics was seated behind me at our screening. His review: "Fantastic!")More crucially, "TGM" pulls off the highly tricky maneuver of bringing back all the adrenaline and bravado that made the first "Top Gun" such an indelible 1980s milestone, while excising some of its more toxic elements and (at least mildly)...
    There are certain politicians in America who exist in a vacuum on Twitter. They continually lose elections, have no actual power to speak of in their home state or Washington D.C., and survive off clicks, retweets and attention mongering. Beto O'Rourke is Exhibit A. Yesterday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott was holding a news conference in Uvalde, Texas when Beto decided to interrupt the event that included local leaders, law enforcement and representatives of the community-at-large. As we all are tragically aware, there was a horrific shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde that left 19 children and two adults dead and countless more injured and traumatized. It is hard to fathom, even after so many shootings in this country, the horror that is the massacre of children. But despite all that – Beto stood up and approached the stage and told Abbott, 'This is on you. You said this was not predictable. This is totally predictable when you choose not to do anything.' You can watch the spectacle on YouTube and see the absolute circus scene that Beto caused. You...
     A TERRIFIED mum fears she'll need both her legs amputated after being bitten by a GNAT and developing a rare skin condition. Jorja Austin, 40, was bitten by a tiny insect on her right leg while mowing the lawn - and now her kids have been taken into care because of her condition. 3Jorja Austin may have to have her legs amputated after the gnat biteCredit: SWNS 3Jorja Austin’s legs are plagued with pyoderma gangrenosum, a rare condition that causes large, painful sores to develop on her skinCredit: SWNS Now doctors have said the former admin assistant may need both legs amputated after suffering a life-threatening bout of sepsis. Jorja was bitten by a gnat in 2009 while cutting the grass at her home in Basildon, Essex. Despite being just a "pinhole" size, the bite never healed and two years later Jorja was diagnosed with pyoderma gangrenosum, a rare skin condition that causes excruciating ulcers. Jorja said: "I've been in agony for 13 years. At one point I could see my leg tendons. READ MORE ON HEALTHVIRAL SPREAD UK...
    NAOMI OSAKA is prepared to snub an appearance at “exhibition” Wimbledon – even though she intends to play on grass after her crushing French Open exit. A year after she quit Roland Garros following a self-imposed media boycott and citing mental health issues, the four-time major winner only had one match in Paris this time. 2Osaka has implied that she will not play at Wimbledon this year after ranking points were removed from the competitionCredit: Getty 2Osaka's admission comes after she was dumped out of the French Open in the first round by Amanda AnisimovaCredit: Getty A 7-5 6-4 90-minute first-round defeat to American Amanda Anisimova on Court Suzanne-Lenglen showed why the Japanese star does not like playing on clay. It was a poor result that saw her add EIGHT double faults to the stats box. Even though she took a painkiller to play despite a dodgy Achilles, the red stuff has never been a happy hunting ground for the former world No.1. Meanwhile, Wimbledon chiefs are bracing themselves for a flux of players who will decide not to play...

    When it comes to gender-affirming health care, Republicans (among others) like to see themselves as experts in spite of having negligible (at best) qualifications and expertise in the field. When it comes to pushing anti-trans legislation that would prevent trans and nonbinary folks from accessing safe, age-appropriate gender-affirming health care, what conservatives are really trying to do is demonize trans folks and allies and stomp out the open existence of an already vulnerable and marginalized community. It’s all about hate, not concern. Sadly, there are plenty of moderates and even progressives who fall into rhetoric traps concerning gender-affirming health care, as though the right to privacy between a patient and their physician disappears the moment one realizes the patient in question is not cisgender. Really safe, legal abortion access, for example, is no different than access to safe, legal gender-affirming health care, but likely due to structural transphobia and ignorance, even some allies don’t want to see it that way.  Trans people shouldn’t need to prove a thing to anyone who isn't a trusted medical professional, but given the ongoing discourse around trans...
