    With Hollywood heavyweights Hugh Grant, Nicole Kidman and Donald Sutherland, The Undoing was certainly not short of star power, but in the wake of this week's series finale it is the relatively unknown Matilda de Angelis, that has everyone talking. The 25-year-old Italian actress, who grew up in a rural town on the outskirts of Bologna, captivated audiences with her 'exquisite performance' and 'menacing beauty' as murdered mistress Elena Alvesin, in what is being hailed as one of the 'biggest breakthrough roles in recent years'. The role required Matilda, who has no formal acting training, to appear naked, share a sex scene with Grant, 60, and initiate a kiss with Kidman, 53, in a penthouse elevator. Her bloodied face also appeared in haunting flashbacks throughout the six-part series as viewers waited to discover who was responsible for her violent death.  It is difficult to believe that de Angelis, who originally dreamed of being a singer, only started acting five years ago when she was plucked from obscurity at an open casting call in Rome. The Undoing marked not only Matilda's first...
    DONALD Trump’s lawyer Jenna Ellis continued to push claims that the president “won in a landslide” even after the start of Joe Biden’s transition process. Ellis’ remarks came during an appearance on MSNBC on Monday, where she insisted that her legal team would overturn the election’s results. 4Donald Trump's lawyer Jenna Ellis continued to push claims that the president 'won in a landlside'Credit: MSNBC Trump’s lawyer repeatedly clashed with MSNBC host Ari Melber when he confronted her with the reality of Biden’s victory and the dozens of failed election lawsuits Ellis and other Trump allies have suffered. Melber offered Ellis a rundown of legal decision where the Trump campaign was run out of the court and asked, “What’s the point of all this?” “The point of course is to get a fair and accurate results,” Ellis said, “The election was stolen and President Trump won by a landslide. And how you are mischaracterizing this, I think your viewers need to understand the truth.” 4Ellis is the latest Trump aide to side with the president on his baseless claims of a...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead in Arizona is now under 17,000 votes and continues to shrink as the state tallies the outstanding ballots. Biden’s lead in Arizona, which Fox News called for the former vice president on the night of the election, dipped to 16,952 as of Sunday afternoon, cutting the 29,861 vote lead Biden held on Friday by over 12,000. There are roughly 77,000 ballots — 29,000 regular ballots and 48,000 provisional — remaining, which could very well determine if outlets such as Fox News were wrong in calling the Grand Canyon State so early: Arizona Update Latest DropTrump: 8,567 (64%)Biden: 4,491 (33%) Biden lead has now shrunk to 16,952. There are ~29k regular ballots remaining, 48k provisional.

According to reports, the president will hold campaign rallies to draw attention to his legal battles, including in Arizona....
    CHICAGO (CBS) — The Chicago Teachers Union has requested a mediator to step in amid an ongoing dispute with the Chicago Public Schools over plans to resume in-person classes for some students during the second quarter, which began Monday. The district has yet to set a date for when it plans to bring students in Pre-K and some special education cluster programs back for in-person learning, but the CTU said a recent survey of parents showed they overwhelmingly rejected putting kids back in the classroom until the spread of COVID-19 is under control. “Seventy-two percent of parents in that poll said that community spread of the virus has to be under control before we return to in-person schooling,” CTU President Jesse Sharkey said. The union is formally requesting CPS enter mediation with a third party, saying the district’s plan for reopening lacks transparency, and the district has not engaged in meaningful bargaining with the union over how to resume in-person classes for some students in the second quarter. Service Employees International Union Local 73 also has expressed concerns about the...

Pelosi has led the caucus since 2003, and had made it no mystery in recent weeks that she intended to retain that position in the next Congress. While voters on Tuesday maintained the Democrats' majority in the lower chamber, it was a bruising cycle for Pelosi and party leaders, who had promised to pick off vulnerable Republicans and expand their numbers advantage in 2021. Instead, Democrats lost at least seven incumbent seats, and as of Friday morning they had not knocked off a single Republican seeking reelection.

    A Taiwanese official has been hospitalized with a head injury after an altercation broke out between Chinese and Taiwanese diplomats in Fiji earlier this month. On statements given by both foreign ministries on Monday, the two accused each others' diplomats of attacking their Fiji-based staff during a reception on Oct. 8, which marked Taiwan's national day.

Taiwan also accused the Chinese officials of falsely telling Fijian police they had been attacked by the Taiwanese personnel and said it "strongly condemned the serious violations of the rule of law and civilized norms by the staff of the Chinese embassy in Fiji." However, China pushed back on this claim, calling it "completely inconsistent" with the facts of the events. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian called on Fiji to...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's focus this week is on trying to make progress in formal trade talks with the European Union, a spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday, reiterating that significant gaps still remained. "As we are entering the final stages of the negotiations our focus is on what it will take to get a trade agreement in place, although the last two weeks of informal talks have been relatively positive there remains much to be done," he said. "The fundamentals of our position have not changed. From the start of this process we've been saying that we simply want the standard free trade agreement ... The EU's position has been less straightforward, and we continue to be asked to accept provisions that do not reflect the reality of our status as an independent country." He added that while the formal talks end this week, there is still the opportunity to keep negotiations going informally in the run up to the European Council next month.

    The Trump campaign reacted to the second night of the Democratic National Convention by arguing that now that Joe Biden is officially the Democratic nominee for president, "his supervisors from the radical left are now formally in charge." "Someone should have explained to Joe Biden that he is now the official nominee of the Democrat Party, meaning his supervisors from the radical left are now formally in charge," Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh said in a statement. Murtaugh said that while the Democratic Convention was counting delegates Tuesday night, "somebody should have been totaling the $4 trillion in new taxes Joe Biden would heap on Americans if elected." DEMOCRATS FORMALLY NOMINATE JOE BIDEN IN VIRTUAL ROLL CALL  Biden has proposed raising income taxes and Social Security taxes on those who make over $400,000. "Another informative exercise would have been for each state delegation to announce how many jobs Biden’s failed policies have killed in their communities, through high taxes and regulations, disastrous trade deals, and coddling of economic rivals like China," Murtaugh said.

    A Hampton Inn is shown Tuesday, July 21, 2020 in Phoenix. The Trump administration is detaining immigrant children as young as 1 in hotels before deporting them to their home countries.

    SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A $1.9 million safety glass plant in Louisiana expects to have 50 employees when it fills all of its jobs, officials said Wednesday.
