    By Lindsey Bahr | Associated Press It is 1862 in a remote Irish village when an English nurse is called in by a local council to observe and investigate a phenomenon in the haunting new film ” The Wonder.” There is, she’s told, an 11-year-old girl who has not eaten food in four months and seems to still be healthy. The nurse, Lib Wright (Florence Pugh), is to watch the girl, in alternating shifts with a nun — it is Ireland, of course — and report back as to what she observes. They say they’d like to know if it’s a miracle or not, though most seem to have made up their minds that they’d rather not actually hear if it’s the latter. The film, from Chilean director Sebastián Lelio (” A Fantastic Woman “), is adapted from a novel by Emma Donohue, the Irish writer of “Room.” She was, she’s said, inspired by the Victorian Fasting Girls. In the late 19th century newspapers ran stories about young girls, often bedridden, who claimed to have been living without food or...
    An artificial intelligence (AI) art generator has been found to produce images of a haunting woman with sunken cheeks in gory settings in response to multiple prompts. Twitter user @supercomposite shared a series of images of the creepy figure, dubbed 'Loab', which they had created using AI tools since April. 'The AI reproduced her more easily than most celebrities,' wrote Supercomposite. 'Her presence is persistent, and she haunts every image she touches'. As the artist continuously combined images of Loab with other scenes, the figure appeared to become clearer and be placed in increasingly gruesome settings. She also has allegedly made appearances on 'multiple' image-generating tools. Loab is therefore being described as a 'cryptid of latent space' - where a cryptid is a creature whose existence is disputed but has had alleged sightings. Supercomposite's Twitter thread now has over 73,000 likes and nearly 15,000 re-tweets, with many social media users convinced the woman is a 'demon that inhabits the AI art generators'. Others are more sceptical, stating that the phenomenon has been faked or is merely a 'quirk of the software'....

    Congressional candidate Laura Loomer is getting extra backing from one of the most pivotal communities in Florida, The Villages. Loomer, 29, is known in the political circuit as a far-right activist and has been campaigning to represent Florida’s 11th district in the 2022 elections. She’s challenging one of the longest serving elected officials in Florida, Rep. Daniel Webster. Webster has represented the 11th District since 2017 and previously served the 10th district since 2011. Before he ran for Congress, he was Speaker of the Florida House. A video circulating Twitter on Monday shows residents of The Villages, the popular retirement community that makes up a large part of District 11, throwing their support behind Loomer. The clips shows Loomer’s supporters sporting “Vote Laura Loomer for Congress” signs and t-shirts. Their rallying cry echoes through the building: “Boomers for Loomer, “Boomers for Loomer.” A small dog in a patriotic red cowboy hat sways with the chant while being held by a lady waving an American flag. Current District 11 representative, Webster, faces two primary challengers, Loomer and Gavriel Soriano. Voters will...
    June Gibbons dressed with care the day she was taken to Broadmoor. She and her twin sister, Jennifer, were — bizarrely — excited at being admitted to the notorious hospital for the criminally insane. The girls had just pleaded guilty to a five-week crime spree in West Wales, including 16 counts of burglary, theft and arson. To say they were troubled teenagers barely describes how odd and anti-social they were: most people found them spooky, even sinister. The twins’ attitude to Broadmoor was by no means the only unusual thing about the identical 19-year-olds: since early childhood they had refused to communicate — even with members of their own family. The Silent Twins, as they became known, lived in a weird, intense world in which they were utterly entwined. They had become imprisoned in that world. Now, in the summer of 1982, having been sentenced to be detained indefinitely — a word they did not understand — they believed they were being offered treatment that could set them free them from their mental torment. They imagined themselves at Broadmoor ‘sitting...
    One of the most celebrated writers of our time, Sir Salman Rushdie spoke of his 'great surprise and delight' when he was named in this year's Queen's Birthday honours list for services to literature. The 75-year-old award-winning novelist described his elevation to the Order of the Companions of Honour in June as an 'extraordinary honour' and 'a privilege'. It was a crowning moment in an illustrious career overshadowed by the most extraordinary controversy the literary world has seen. Founded in 1917 by George V, the Companions of Honour is awarded for long-standing contribution to arts, science, medicine or government. Rushdie certainly fits that bill. The author of more than 20 books, the Indian-born, Rugby-educated, former advertising copywriter's output is not only prolific but acclaimed. His third novel Midnight's Children won the 1981 Booker Prize, and then the Best of Booker Prize winners in 2008. But it was his controversial fourth novel, The Satanic Verses, which propelled him on to the front pages 34 years ago, turning him into a global name, figure of hate and target of death threats.

    The images are haunting. Two pairs of sisters, side by side, frozen in time with the dead-eyed stare of a passport picture. These are the only known photographs of four young Saudi women bound together in tragedy after fleeing their homes for a better life and basic freedoms.  Those dreams ended in two separate double-death mysteries in chillingly similar circumstances, half a world apart in the US and Australia.

    Authorities discovered Thursday night the lifeless body of a missing 18-year-old girl inside a water tank located on an abandoned property near a motel in northeastern Mexico. Debanhi Escobar mysteriously disappeared after going out to party - against her mother's wishes - with two girl friends in the city of Escobedo on April 8.  A haunting photo of her was snapped by a rideshare driver the morning of April 9 before she mysteriously vanished.  Her father, Mario Escobar, accompanied his wife to the Nueva Castilla Motel after they were notified by the Nuevo León State Office of the Attorney General that a female body had been found inside a cistern. Although the prosecutor's office said it would need additional time to process a DNA test to confirm the victim's identity, the distraught father told a bevy of reporters at the site that it was indeed his daughter who had been found after 13 days of a massive search that spread across neighboring states. 'My daughter is dead and I don't know what to do,' he said. Debanhi Escobar was photographed...

    Buckingham Palace is planning a 'military-style' operation to get the Queen to Prince Philip's memorial service while keeping her out of view from paparazzi, sources have claimed.  The monarch, 95, is expected to be flown 15 minutes by helicopter from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace for the event, taking place on March 29. The head of state will then be driven the short distance from the Palace to Westminster Abbey, reports the Sun on Sunday.  The entire Dean's Yard will be sealed off under the plans, which also include six-foot privacy screens and a potential football-style tunnel which would block any photographer's view as she exits her vehicle. One source told the Mail on Sunday that Her Majesty does not want to be seen in public in a wheelchair over fears of replicating a 'haunting' photo taken by her late sister Princess Margaret in the months before her death.  It comes after the Queen pulled out of the Commonwealth Day service last week over concerns for her 'comfort' on the 60-mile trip, and whether she could manage having to sit in...

    This is what the end of a civilised world looks like – terrible and beautiful at the same time. It is almost midnight and below us, the town of Irpin is being pounded by artillery. Night has become day and orange flames leap high and hypnotically so that the white concrete of the nearest tower blocks give off noontide glares. Each new hit blossoms silently, before the profound boom of impact reaches our vantage point many seconds later. We are on the 23rd storey of a residential tower on the very edge of the Kyiv suburb of Sviatoshyn. Here, we are separated from Irpin by a couple of miles of birch forest. But from this height we are afforded an extraordinary panorama that encompasses not only the battered satellite town but the whole of the critical front-line to the north and west of Kyiv. It is here that the Russian armoured and airborne forces have massed in anticipation of a war-ending assault on the capital. We are the guests of Andrei Shirimira, a classical violinist who trained at Kyiv's conservatoire...
    A poignant three-minute film documenting the life of a Jewish community in Poland just one year before being rounded up and later wiped out by the Nazis has been turned into a full-length documentary.  The 1938 colour film was made by American traveller David Kurtz, whose family had emigrated from Poland in 1890. The short clip shows crowds of youngsters wearing yarmulkes (traditional Jewish caps) on a cobbled street in Nasielsk, eastern Poland, their faces beaming in innocent fascination at the camera. Also seen are families gathered in groups as they smile in front of Kurtz's camera.   After the Nazis' arrival in the town in December 1939, Nasielsk's residents were rounded up. Only 100 members of its community of 3,000 Jews would survive the Holocaust, in which an estimated six million men, women and children were murdered in a network of death camps. The film had lain forgotten in a battered tin can until being found by Mr Kurtz's grandson Glenn in the cellar of their family home in Florida. Originally intended as a holiday home movie, the 16-mm film...
    A blurry image taken from a police helicopter has given Anthony 'AJ' Elfalak's family all the proof they need that he was being cared for by an angel while lost in the bush. With her three-year-old nuzzling into her neck and holding onto her tightly, Kelly Elfalak revealed she had no doubt that the 'power of prayer' kept AJ safe. Little AJ was found on September 6 after three days in inhospitable terrain behind his family home in Putty, 150km northwest of Sydney, with nothing more than some scratches, ant bites and nappy rash. His devout Coptic Orthodox Christian family believe that an angel can be seen hidden in the rocks to his left when the NSW Police helicopter zeroed in on him. 'If you saw the picture of AJ in the creek, you can see the angel next to him,' Ms Elfalak said.    A blurry image taken from a police helicopter has given Anthony 'AJ' Elfalak's family all the proof they need that he was being cared for by an angel while lost in the bush With...

    COMO, Italy — As Maestro Vanni Moretto walks across the stage, the only sound that can be heard is the echo of his footsteps as he takes center position in front of his orchestra. He turns to face the 858 empty seats of the Teatro Verdi in Pisa and awkwardly inclines his head, first left and then right, acknowledging an audience that cannot be seen. There is haunting silence from the vacant space of the stalls and platea. Removing his mask, he signals the start of the symphony, and the music begins. Twelve months after Italy initiated its first lockdown, following clusters of COVID-19 infections in the industrial regions of the north, Milanese composer, orchestra conductor and violonista Vanni Moretto sums up the situation in one word — tristezza. It is indeed a gloomy state of affairs that theaters remain shut as we enter the second year of the pandemic. Minister for Cultural Heritage Dario Franchesini initially had high hopes for the ongoing streaming of live events, but his proposal of a ‘Netflix of Culture’ was considered by many in...
    Pamela Anderson, 53, showed her playful side when she got down on the floor in her new Instagram video on Friday. The former Baywatch was having the time of her life while playing with a deck of cards. In the monochromatic clip, the star sat with her legs apart in a room with white paneled walls. In the far corner of the space, a table and two chairs created a homelike feeling in the space. The dark colors of the furniture also provided some contrast in the light-colored surroundings. She added haunting classical music to the update that seemed to resonate with her 1.1 million followers. As for Pamela, she was clearly having the time of her life even though she was playing by herself. She bent over fully so that her elbows and forearms were on the wooden floor while she contemplated her hand. The bombshell blonde’s long, wavy hair tumbled down her shoulders and back as she chuckled and looked at the cards. While she clasped some of the deck with her fingers, the majority was strewn in...
    CNN’s Chris Cuomo said Tuesday on “Cuomo Prime Time” that President Donald Trump’s failure to concede the presidential election to former Vice President Joe Biden made him “a dead man haunting the halls of a country in crisis.” In a clip of former President Barack Obama saying to then-President-elect Trump, “My number one priority in the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures our president-elect is successful. We now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed, then the country succeeds.” Cuomo said, “That from a president and now we’re hearing from Trump who is no president, he is a dissident at best and a revenant in the main, a revenant, a dead man haunting the halls of a country in crisis. What do we do about it? You have to keep that energy up too. You have to be outraged by this. If this dead man walking and his zombie pals in Congress are looking to make this transition into a complete horror show, the...
    A haunting book of poetry penned by Auschwitz prisoners who kept it hidden from Nazi guards has been returned to the death camp's museum after it was discovered in a survivor's cupboard in Poland. The harrowing 32-page notebook containing 17 poems with 'snapshots of immense suffering and longing for freedom' was compiled by female inmates after the poems were collated together for other prisoners to read in secret. Most of the poems, which tell of 'frozen fear' and 'spouts of crimson blood', but also of defiance and 'holding shaven heads high', appear to have been begun in the autumn of 1943.

    Top costume designer Julian Day might have been forgiven for fearing the task of reimagining Daphne du Maurier’s moody thriller “Rebecca” for a new millennium. After all, the author’s adored 1938 suspense novel about a paid lady’s companion marrying an aristocratic British widower was iconically adapted by Alfred Hitchcock into the multi Oscar-winning 1940 black and white classic — a tough act to follow. But Day rose to the challenge, keen to use a dazzling palate of colors for the sumptuous movie remake starring “Downton Abbey” grad Lily James and “Call Me By Your Name” hunk Armie Hammer. It premieres Wednesday, October 21, on Netflix. “For me, the 1930s were the beginning of the modern era of clothing,” Day told The Post. “I love the silhouettes and took inspiration from Hollywood at the time — actresses like Greta Garbo — and royalty including the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.” Hues range from paler pastels to English countryside greens, as well as brooding purples and deep navy blues. The color transitions reflect the twisting plot that shifts from light to dark...

    With a vote fast approaching in a Denver City Council committee, city planners are trying to conjure up a magic number: just how many unrelated adults can live together in the same home. "We’ve heard quite a few concerns from you over the course of these last few meetings about those current proposals: chiefly, the number of people allowed to live in a dwelling unit, and concerns of very large households of unrelated adults," Andrew Webb, the senior city planner spearheading an overhaul the group-living aspects of Denver's zoning code, said at an October 6 Denver City Council Land Use, Transportation and Infrastructure Committee meeting. The current version of the proposal, which has been in the works since March 2018, suggests increasing the number of unrelated adults who can live together in the same household from two to a base of five, with the chance to increase this number to ten, depending on the square footage of a home. (An unlimited number of relatives would be allowed to live in these households, too, as is currently the case in Denver.)Related...

When President Donald Trump was asked about new reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin apparently had opposition leader Aleksei Navalny poisoned, he predictably refused to condemn the Kremlin and cast doubt on the evidence. “We haven’t had any proof yet, but I will take a look,” Trump said, seemingly open to the idea that Putin’s chief critic just happened to coincidentally be poisoned by Novichok, a military-grade nerve agent developed by the Soviet Union. It was yet another stark reminder of the president’s odd fealty to Putin, and even his admiration. “I do get along with President Putin,” Trump added. With the 2020 election in sight, the president’s continued refusal to call Putin to account should increasingly disturb us. Not just because of what it means Moscow can get away with — it continues to insert itself into American electoral politics, with no pushback from Trump — but because of what it tells us about Trump....

    Mary Elizabeth Williams June 28, 2020 7:30PM (UTC) True crime fandom often suffers from an unpleasantly smug, self-satisfied sense of its own cleverness. While it takes a certain degree of morbid curiosity and gallows humor to persistently return again and again to infamous and outrageous cases, there's also an undeniably flippant streak of callousness evident in plenty of the most popular boards and podcasts. It's a unique and singularly impressive feat, then, that HBO's highly anticipated documentary series "I'll Be Gone In the Dark" takes an achingly domestic approach to the tale surrounding one of America's worst serial rapists and murderers. This is a story with an obvious villain, the elusive killer who terrorized California throughout the 1970s and '80s. And it has a charismatic hero in Michelle McNamara, the relentless, obsessive amateur detective who got her hooks in the case and never let it go. McNamara was also the late wife of comedian Patton Oswalt, and the series is every bit as much their love story as it is a true crime one. : Nearly a decade ago, McNamara...
