    I don\u2019t get it. And never will. I think it is wrong for an American to compete for China. China is represses free speech, is well known for their human rights violations. Did she abandon her US citizenship or not? (China does not have dual citizenship) ugh. #EileenGu — Claire McCaskill (@Claire McCaskill) 1644294259 McCaskill went on to ask a question that many have asked Gu since the start of the Olympics: "Did she abandon her U.S. citizenship or not?" It remains unclear whether Gu has renounced her U.S. citizenship, a move that is normally required for Chinese naturalization since the country does not allow dual citizenship. The skier was asked about the matter by reporters on numerous occasions during her post-gold medal press conference, but each time she refused to answer, saying only that she felt American in the U.S. and Chinese in China, according to CNN.What else?Other critics have suggested that Gu only decided to compete for China as a publicity maneuver, knowing her success would earn her unique fame and fortune in China. That perception...
    AN OLYMPIC skier who was born and raised in the United States but has decided to compete for China has divided opinion after she switched allegiance aged 15. Eileen Gu, now aged 18, is the favorite to take home three gold medals in the 2022 Bejing Winter Games, which begin on Friday. 3Eileen Gu of Team ChinaCredit: Getty 3Eileen Gu of China competes during the finals of Freeski Big Air of the 2021 FIS Aspen Snowboard & Freeski World ChampionshipsCredit: Reuters The teen has angered some, however, who believe that the San Francisco native should not have joined Team China. Gu made the decision in 2019 after winning her first World Cup in Italy. "This was an incredibly tough decision for me to make," she wrote in an Instagram post at the time. "The opportunity to help inspire millions of young people where my mom was born, during the 2022 Beijing Olympic Winter Games is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help to promote the sport I love. "Through skiing, I hope to unite people, promote common understanding,...
    Sun streaming from above, cinematographer Halyna Hutchins smiles into the camera as she films herself riding off into the New Mexico desert on horseback. This was the last Instagram post shared by the married mother-of-one before she was accidentally killed by actor Alec Baldwin when he fired a prop gun while filming a scene for an upcoming Western on a ranch near Santa Fe. Born in Ukraine and raised on a Soviet military base 'surrounded by reindeer and nuclear submarines', Halyna, 42, had trained as a journalist and spent time in Europe working on British documentaries before making the move to Los Angeles, where she had established her career - and started a family.  Remembered by friends as a 'kind' and 'loving soul', Halyna lived in Venice Beach, California, with her husband Matthew, a lawyer, and their son Andros, known affectionately as her 'little man' and thought to be around nine years old.  'Halyna loved him so much and enjoyed watching him grow into the handsome boy he is today,' one friend wrote in a moving Instagram tribute.

    LOGAN SQUARE — When Christian Mejía’s parents settled in Logan Square in the late ’80s, the neighborhood was a welcoming landing place. Mejía’s mother, then an undocumented immigrant from Mexico, volunteered for a local school and a theater. The family got their birthday cakes at Pierre’s Bakery and shopped at the Discount Megamall and the pet shop Animal Kingdom. But those businesses, along with many others catering to the Latino community, have vanished over the past few decades as Logan Square gentrifies. Mejía watched his Latino neighbors move away for cheaper rents while the neighborhood’s white population exploded, ushering in shops and bars catering to white millennials. In an effort to “understand why [his] neighborhood was disappearing,” Mejía created and directed an anthology web series called “Born & Raised,” which follows a group of fictional characters grappling with gentrification in Logan Square. The three-episode series, filmed in Logan Square, debuts Nov. 10 on Open Television, the culmination of four years of planning, fundraising and filming. A monthly subscription to OTV costs $4.99. Mejía and his partner, Jacqueline Lyon,...

    ON the outside looking in, you'd think that growing up in a wagon and never having one permanent place to call home would make for a challenging childhood. But for proud traveller Marie Rawlings, her humble upbringing couldn't have been happier. 3Marie appears on Channel 5's Here Come the GypsiesCredit: Channel 5 Appearing on Channel 5's Here Come the Gypsies, Marie - who now lives in a semi-detached house in Dorset - hit back at people who assume all travellers are thieves. "I was born on the road," she said: "And I'm proud to be born on the road. From a baby, I've known nothing any different." Giving cameras insight into an integral part of Romany culture, Marie and her brother Leon returned to the fields they visited as children to burn their recently-deceased parents' possessions to dispel evil spirits. "Burning is a traveller cultural thing," the mum added. "They wouldn't like me to box it up and take it to a second-hand shop because gypsies wouldn't like somebody else wearing my mum and dad's stuff." 3Marie and her...
    Hilaria Baldwin is apologizing over her recent heritage scandal. The 37-year-old yoga/wellness expert was put on blast in December when it was discovered she wasn't actually born in Spain -- as she had implied -- and instead was born and raised in Boston, Mass. Baldwin was also criticized for allegedly faking a Spanish accent. The bilingual mother of five's accent noticeably fluctuated over the years when she made appearances on TV.  On Friday, Baldwin issued an apology on Instagram, writing: "I’ve spent the last month listening, reflecting, and asking myself how I can learn and grow. My parents raised my brother and me with two cultures, American and Spanish, and I feel a true sense of belonging to both." She continued: "The way I’ve spoken about myself and my deep connection to two cultures could have been better explained - I should have been more clear and I'm sorry. I'm proud of the way I was raised, and we’re raising our children to share the same love and respect for both.

Charles and Irene raised Kathryn in Massachusetts as well, where she ultimately became an internist at Massachusetts General Hospital and assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

    VIENNA (Reuters) - The gunman shot dead in the Vienna attacks on Monday was a 20-year-old born and raised in the city who was known to domestic intelligence because he was one of 90 Austrian Islamists who wanted to travel to Syria, a newspaper editor said on Tuesday. Kurtin S. had "Albanian roots" but his parents were originally from North Macedonia, the editor of the weekly Falter newspaper Florian Klenk said on Twitter, without giving details of the source for that information. Police thought he was not capable of planning an attack in Vienna, Klenk added. (Reporting by Francois Murphy; Editing by Andrew Heavens) Copyright 2020 Thomson Reuters.
