    A woman has revealed that she bases all of her life decisions based on star sign forecasts  - and checks the full astrological chart of any potential suitor, avoiding them if they're not compatible. Luna Atoms, 32, has for years been letting the Zodiac dictate her day to day, and claims it has helped her escape potentially bad relationships. The artist from Derbyshire also refuses to travel or buy new technology unless all is aligned - and said she's even given up people she 'really liked' purely based on the stars' predictions.  An astrological forecast compares your natal birth chart to what is currently in the sky, and this changes daily based on the position of planets; predictions are then made about how this may impact your life.

    President Joe Biden shrugged off news of Donald Trump's presidential run during his visit to Bali on Wednesday, offering the briefest of comments about his possible 2024 opponent. He was asked if he had any reaction as he toured a mangrove forest with other world leaders. He shared a smile with President Emmanuel Macron of France before saying: 'Not really.' Then he returned his attention to the mangroves during a visit hosted by Indonesian President Joko Widodo. It came during a busy morning for Biden on the final day of his around-the-world foreign policy blast. Earlier he convened an emergency meeting with N.A.T.O. allies to discuss an explosion in Poland, which Warsaw said was caused by a Russian missile.

But Dame Mary Berry revealed yesterday that she had chosen the hymns she hoped would be played at her funeral – and had already reserved the site of her grave. The former Bake Off star said: 'It's a bit morbid to think about a funeral, but I'm not really too bothered because I won't be here! 'I'd like to have a party before it happens.

Speaking at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, the 87-year-old said she and her husband Paul, 90, had reserved a double grave plot.

'I do try to keep busy and do things and get out and plan the day – and Paul...

    The Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said his office didn't hear a 'whisper' about the 10-year-old girl who allegedly had to leave the state in order to get an abortion, and said there's 'no biological evidence' of the case as a rape kit was not performed.  Yost, 65, told Fox News' Jesse Watters that a police report was never filed involving a 10-year-old rape victim and that the office 'works closely' with law enforcement, indicating that he would have known about it if one was filed.  'We have regular contact with prosecutors and local police and sheriffs, not a whisper anywhere,' he told Fox News.  'Even more telling, Jesse, my office runs the state crime lab. Any case like this, you're going to have a rape kit, you're going to have biological evidence, and you'd be looking for DNA analysis,' he said on Monday.

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) further strutted her woke posturing at the Reagan Presidential Library, where she said the world “is really not going that well” under male leadership. As part of the “Time for Choosing” speaker series, Liz Cheney briefly honored former President Ronald Reagan before segueing into a diatribe against former Donald Trump, calling him a “dangerous and irrational man.” Cheney also characterized Republican leadership as being loyal to the former president at the expense of the Constitution. Towards the tail-end of her speech, Cheney celebrated that which gives her the most hope for the future: “young women.” “Young women who seem instinctively to understand the peril of this moment for democracy,” Cheney said. “Young women who know that it will be up to them to save it. And I have been incredibly moved by the young women that I have met and that have come forward to testify in the January 6 committee.” Cheney then praised January 6 witness Cassidy Hutchinson, whose testimony has since been called into serious question by a number of reliable sources that dispute...
    President Joe Biden caught himself in the act of an embarrassing gaffe during a press conference on Thursday, mistakenly saying neutral Switzerland was joining NATO - rather than Sweden. He quickly recovered, joking that he must be getting anxious about the process of expanding the alliance. Biden delivered his remarks at the end of a NATO summit in Madrid, Spain, where the big news was Turkey dropping its objection to Sweden and Finland joining the alliance. He described the process by which the two nations made their application after Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine. First came a call from the leader Finland, asking to visit the White House.  'We got the telephone ... he suggested we call the leader of Switzerland ... ' he said before realizing his mistake. 'Switzerland, my goodness, I'm getting really anxious here about expanding NATO.  'Sweden.' President Joe Biden addressed the media at the end of a six-day trip to Europe.

    President Joe Biden's pollster John Anzalone had some blunt warnings for Democrats ahead of November's election, saying the party should 'just compete to not get our a**es kicked.' His warnings echoed those other Democrats have given ahead of the midterm election, where Republicans are favored to win control of the House.  Republicans garnered 44.7% in the Five Thirty Eight polling average on the 2022 election while Democrats came in at 42.4%.  Anzalone said the combination of inflation, the war in Ukraine, the tension at the southern border and the remains of the covid pandemic have made the 2022 election a 'really sour environment for Democrats.' Americans, he said, 'are p***ed.'  ''We better look at the strategic ways that we can compete, right? Just compete to not get our asses kicked,' he said in a blunt conversation with Politico. 'I think what we’re missing right now is that voters are very much in “What have you done for me lately?” They always are,' he noted. 'And they don’t feel Democrats can get their s*** together and get things done.' He advised Biden to try...

Speaking to The Times about her relationship with the academic, she called marriage 'a funny thing', adding: 'It's insane and completely deluded to set out to try to stay with the same person until you're dead, and the madness of the venture creates comedy at every turn, because obviously we fail and disappoint ourselves all the time.'

Christian Cabrera, 40, of California, who went by the social media handle and stage name of 'Chinese Best Friend,' tested positive for COVID-19 sometime after Christmas. However, the father of a three-year-old son had been 'skeptical of the science behind the vaccine and always claimed he "never" gets sick,' and did not receive the coronavirus vaccine, according to his brother, Jino Cabrera.  'I can't breathe again,' Cabrera wrote last Thursday.  'I really regret not getting the vaccine. If I could do it all over again I would do it in a heartbeat to save my life.'  Cabrera died on January 14 after succumbing to pneumonia from both lungs caused by the coronavirus, a day after making the regretful Instagram post where he wished he had gotten vaccinated.   Pictured: Christian Cabrera, 40, of California, as he lay in the ICU with an oxygen mask affixed to his face after contracting COVID 19 after Christmas...

    An online body positivity group have created cards for patients who do not want to be weighed by their doctors unless absolutely necessary.  The 'Don't Weigh Me Cards', created by More-Love.org, ask doctors not to weigh patients every time they come in for an appointment because it 'stresses them out' and it 'perpetuates weight stigma'.  The group was founded in 2016 by Ginny Jones, a US-based life coach who specialises in eating disorder recovery and provides free online resources for parents about weight, food, and mental health.  The cards are available for free for individual use, excluding the cost of post and packaging, or for businesses to purchase for $32 per 100 - with doctors surgeries in the US already providing patients with the cards.  On the back of the cards is a list of reasons why being weighed is not always necessary, including 'Most health conditions can be addressed without knowing my weight', and 'I pursue healthy behaviors regardless of my weight status'.   'Don't Weigh Me Cards', created by More-Love.org, ask doctors not to weigh patients every time they come in for an...

    As far as holy grails in medicine are concerned, you don’t get one much more significant than a cure for dementia. It’s the condition many of us fear most, as the disease slowly but inexorably obliterates the mind. We’ve been waiting for a breakthrough treatment for decades, yet despite billions spent on drug development and research by governments and companies worldwide, the majority of candidates have fallen by the wayside. Some experimental medicines have even had the opposite of the intended effect, actually worsening brain function. And the only drugs currently available simply tackle specific symptoms of mild to moderate dementia — there is nothing that can slow down the disease or prevent it. So, understandably, there was huge excitement and hopeful headlines recently after the first new medicine for Alzheimer’s (the most common type of dementia) in two decades was approved by the U.S. regulator, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    'Never going to be sexual' According to Insider, this isn't the first time someone involved in the film's production has spoken out to clarify the odd storyline. Director Steve Hickner clarified in 2017 that the bee character and the female protagonist were "never going to be sexual or anything like that." "It was purely friendship," Hickner said at the time for the film's 10th anniversary. "[M]aybe in Barry's mind he thought ... but it was never going to be that." The film's script writer, Barry Marder, also admitted that he, too, believed that the storyline was "kind of weird."

    A viral TikTok trend claims to educate women who believe they are attracted to men but have only been socially conditioned into thinking they are heterosexual.    Compulsory heterosexuality, colloquially known as ‘comphet’, is a term used to describe the belief that Western culture has coerced women into trying to view all connections between men and women as sexual or romantic. The argument is all women have been conditioned from childhood to view any feelings they have towards men as attraction - with some authors even going so far as to say all females are actually lesbian by nature. TikTok users are now sharing checklists to help women work out if they are bisexual or lesbian, posting clips with the hashtag ‘comphet’. @femmefetti #foryoupage #lesbiansoftiktok #fypシ # #latetolesbian #comphet #tiktoklesbian #wlw #lgbt #queer ♬ Stuck in the Middle - Tai Verdes A viral TikTok trend claims to educate women who believe they are attracted to men but have only been socially conditioned into thinking they are heterosexual.

    Legal experts and the American Civil Liberties Union have criticized a pair of New York judges for ordering defendants to get vaccinated if they want to make bail or be granted a plea deal.   The ACLU slammed the decisions as 'troubling' and one lawyer even called the rulings 'nonsensical' and abuse of power that could be seen as grounds for the judges to be censured or suspended.  The criticism comes after Manhattan judge Jed Rakoff granted the release of Elouisa Pimental, a woman accused of drug dealing, on the condition she get vaccinated.   Another order came from Bronx judge Jeffrey Zimmerman who made vaccination part of a plea deal.  The Daily Mail reached out to numerous legal experts and found agreement that while judges do have a lot of discretion in sentencing, these rulings go well past what the judiciary is supposed to be doing.  Jared Trujilio, policy council for the New York division of the ACLU, found these decisions troubling Philip Hamburger, (left) a law professor at Columbia University and the founder and president of the New...
    "I got COVID. I am vaccinated, and I got COVID, and it's bad. It's weighing on my chest, it's hard to breathe, one of my kids has it so far, I'm praying that the other ones are OK," she explained. "I'm mad. I'm really mad," Hart said. "Because we tried, and we took precautions and we cut our exposure by a lot," she continued, "but we got lazy and I think as a country we got lazy. And I'm really mad that my kids didn't wear masks at schools. I'm pretty sure that's where this came from." Hart, who is the mother of three boys ages 8, 13, and15, went on to say that her youngest son bragged about wearing his mask every day when he got home from school. "Scared and sad and disappointed in myself, and some of our leaders, and a lot of people, including myself," Hart continued. "I just wish I had done better, so I'm asking you guys, do better," she concluded. "Protect your families, protect your...
    CELEBS are always saying or doing something that causes a public debate. This time around it's the revelation that stars like Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Jake Gyllenhaal 'shower when necessary', whilst on the other hand Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson showers three times a day - so who is right? 2It's something we're a bit embarrassed to talk about - but how often do you shower?Credit: Getty It's something you may have wondered, but never dared ask your mates - just how often SHOULD you shower? Are you showering too much? Or do you need to jump in the shower and scrub asap? Chartered Scientist (and founder of skincare brand SOS Serum) Bruce Green has settled the debate about how often you need to be showering. Be prepared to be shocked. Bruce said: "Most people choose to shower daily, however over-exposure to soap, and very warm/hot water can throw off the acid mantle. “This can be particularly problematic for people with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.

    LET’S be honest, the majority of us don’t change our bed sheets as often as we should. It’s one of the biggest household chores and we often find ourselves putting it off for longer than we should. 2It's time you gave your beloved pillows a the washCredit: Getty But did you know that you need to wash your pillows too? Just like your sheets, you need to give your actual pillows a clean as well. While you should wash your sheets every two weeks at least, you can get away with leaving your actual pillows for slightly longer. However, you definitely need to wash them more frequently than you’re doing it. Get ready to be shocked. You should always check the care label on your pillows, but guidelines advise that our pillows should be washed every three to six months.

    Pandemic journal: It’s Not Really About Masks “Why are fully vaccinated people treated the same as the unvaccinated?” wonders Peter Van Buren at The American Conservative. E.g.: All air travelers must mask. “The answer is at the heart of whether public policy in America will shift and allow us to crawl back into our lives.” Because it “was never just a mask, it has always been a way of thinking.” Every state and business has different rules, a “leadership void” into which “enters superstition, pseudoscience, politics, voodoo, and most of all, fear.” The idea “You can’t be too careful” only works if “COVID restrictions have no secondary or tertiary effects.” But they do: “Economies have been devastated. Education has disappeared for large numbers of kids.” And with teen suicides up, we’re “killing children to save them.” Media watch: Times in ‘Echo Chamber’ Again Jackson Richman at Mediaite slams a New York Times “news” story that claims “both sides have much to lose” if the United States and Iran don’t restore the 2015 nuclear deal and notes getting it “back on...
    Sorry billionaires, the United States has moved to tighten up the formal definition of astronaut. New Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules now state that an official space man or woman must have “demonstrated activities during flight that were essential to public safety, or contributed to human space flight safety.” Bezos traveled to space via his own Blue Origin company.AFP via Getty Images The changes are the first since the FAA wings program began in 2004, the BBC reported. The new rules appear specifically designed to exclude the emerging class of billionaire space cowboys like Jeff Bezos and Sir Richard Branson — both of whom helmed private space flights aboard their own vessels in recent days. Branson recently traveled to space too — via his Virgin Galactic outfit.Virgin Galactic The update was first posted online Tuesday — the same day Bezos and his Blue Origin shuttle launched into the edge of space. Both Branson and Bezos wore a set of wings on their flights which were each custom made by their own companies. Filed under astronauts ,  faa ,  jeff bezos , ...
    Chip and Joanna Gaines are stronger than ever. The Magnolia brand owners have been married for just over 18 years and are looking back after hitting the major milestone, revealing they’ve never considered calling it quits. "One thing that I would say is our superpower is that Jo and I are not quitters," Chip, 46, recently told Access Hollywood. "Throwing in the towel is not something honestly that ever even comes to mind." He said that "early" in their relationship, they mutually felt that "divorce or leaving one another is not really an option for us."

    Tucker Carlson has branded Kamala Harris a 'power hungry buffoon' after several aides claimed her office is 'abusive', as he demanded to know who is really in charge of America 'if Joe Biden is not running things.'  The Fox News host took aim at the vice president on his show Friday night claiming she is 'posing as a competent adult' when she is really 'a joke' and 'has no idea what she's doing.'  He pointed to her role in tackling the crisis at the US's southern border and her focus on getting more women into the workplace.     Carlson said 'a tsunami' of migrants continue to flock to the border meanwhile Harris 'proceeds to drive women out of her own office.' 'She takes charge of a problem she doesn't really understand, and then she makes it worse,' he said.   His comments came after aides and administration officials complained of a tense atmosphere with low morale and trust, and bad communication in Harris's office in a bombshell Politico report this week.  Tucker Carlson has branded Kamala Harris a 'power hungry buffoon' after several aides...
    President Joe Biden choked up talking about the families of the victims of the Champlain Tower collapse after his visit with them in Florida on Thursday. 'So many of them are suffering. You know, they had basic heart wrenching questions. Will I be able to recover in the body of my son or daughter, my husband, my cousin, my mom and dad. How can I close without being able to bury them. If I don't get the body, what do I do,' he said of after spending nearly an hour with them. 'They know that the chances as the days go by diminish slightly,' he noted.   Biden grew emotional as he went on, saying the conversations 'just brought back so many, so many memories.'  A 1972 car crash took the life of his first wife, Neilia, as well as his infant daughter, Naomi. His two sons, Beau and Hunter, were injured in the accident. 'It’s bad enough to lose somebody. But the hard part, the really hard part is to not know if somebody survived,' he said. 'When the accident took my wife,...
    WHILE we know to regularly wash our bedsheets to keep them fresh, it's fair to say that our mattresses can get overlooked. Most of us definitely aren't cleaning our mattresses enough, with a bed expert revealing just the grim reason why we should be cleaning it at least once or twice a year. 8A bed expert has revealed why you should be cleaning your mattress at least once/twice a yearCredit: Getty Jonathan Warren, director at Time4Sleep, explains that the average person can sweat up to 22 gallons (yes, gallons) of sweat per year and that can accumulate in the mattress, along with dust and dirt. It's claimed we spend a third of our life in bed and on average 19,000 hours sleeping - meaning our mattress can become a hub for dead skin and grim build-up. After finding out that 40 per cent of Brits are unaware they need to clean their mattresses regularly, Jonathan is sharing his expert advice on how to give your mattress some much-needed TLC. "A thorough mattress clean could help...
    (CNN)Every time I place Communion in someone's hand or tongue, it is an act of faith -- on my part and on that of the communicant. I say the words, "the body of Christ," to which the response is "Amen," meaning "it is true" or "let it be so" -- not always said with certainty but, often, with hope. Father Edward BeckThis revered sacrament of Communion is meant to signify what the word means: with oneness, with unity. The contentious debate of this week's American Catholic bishops' meeting threatens to have this sacrament become a symbol of division and a political and religious weapon. I wonder what the Jesus who prayed, "Father, may they all be one," would think.The division among the American bishops became readily apparent soon after the election of President Joe Biden, when the bishops' conference formed a working group to deal with Biden's public stance favoring abortion rights, which collides with the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. On Inauguration Day, the US Bishops' Conference president, Archbishop Jose Gomez, of Los Angeles, issued a statement that...
    A portion of Syncrude's tar sands mine site north of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Looking back through Daily Kos’ coverage of the Keystone XL pipeline turns up 99 articles. On the front page. In the last year. Over the just-short-of-a-decade lifespan of the project, the Keystone XL pipeline actually appeared in thousands of articles, and there are very good reasons. From concerns over climate change and continued dependence on fossil fuels, to the way the pipeline threatened Native lands and threatened water sources across the country, the Keystone XL project hit every branch on its way down the Bad Things tree. Add in the way that protests around the pipeline were turned into an excuse for American law enforcement to showcase how it values corporate profits way above the rights of individuals, and the pipeline might as well have been the definition of a Hot Button. From the moment of its inception, the plan to route oil from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin in Alberta all the way to a tank farm north of Patoka, Illinois, seemed not just like an environmental disaster in...
    Plastic is certainly a superhero when it comes to making life more convenient. It can be made into dishes and eating utensils that you never have to wash. Single-serve beverages and snacks in plastic packaging are an easy grab-and-go option when you’re running out the door for work or school. And how about plastic shopping bags so you don’t have to remember to bring a gazillion reusable bags every time you head to the grocery store? You may already be shaking your head at these excuses for using plastic, but the reality is that this material is very appealing to many for the fact that it makes life much more convenient. It can save you time and energy in your daily routine. And besides, a lot of those plastic water bottles and shopping bags end up in recycling centers where they’re made into awesome new products, right? Well, it is true that some plastics do end up in recycling centers and can be made into sweet new objects like a park bench or playground equipment. The reality is that...
