    In the summer of 2018, I drove from Orange County to Denver and back for a bunch of freelance assignments. One of my stops was in Colorado Springs, for a subject I usually don’t care about: beer. I’m more of a bourbon and mezcal man. But Jess Fierro of Atrevida Beer Co. had invited me to swing by her family business. She and her husband Rich had recently opened the small brewery and taproom, which at the time was one of the only Latina-run beer companies in the United States. Over a crisp lager, Fierro told me her story. How she and Rich were high school sweethearts who grew up in San Diego. How they learned to love the art of beer making when Rich was stationed as an Army officer in Germany in the 2000s. How Jess, a cosmetologist by trade, worked up the nerve to do home brewing when the Army transferred Rich to Colorado. Jess talked about the thrill of winning a beer competition aired on the Vice network. About the fright of turning a hobby...
    In October 2020, Melissa Francis, a popular host on both Fox News and Fox Business, seemingly disappeared from the airwaves. As co-host of one of the network’s biggest shows, Outnumbered, Francis wasn’t seen on her regular time slots for weeks until in late October 2020 it was announced that, after nine years with the company, she had been pushed out of the network. At the time, Fox cited “program changes” as the reason Francis was gone. They released a statement citing ongoing changes for the daytime lineup: Fox News Media regularly considers programming changes, including to its daytime lineup, and will launch new formats as appropriate after the election. These changes are being made independent of any other ongoing matter. Francis has long stayed silent about the precise details surrounding her departure. But Friday, she was finally able to share her story with former Fox colleague, Megyn Kelly. On the Friday episode of the SiriusXM radio program The Megyn Kelly Show, Francis and her lawyer Kevin Mintzer were featured to discuss the story. During contract negotiations in 2020, Francis claimed...

    Los Angeles Clippers guard John Wall has admitted he thought about committing suicide while dealing with the struggles of his past three years. Wall hasn't been on the court for majority of the last few seasons, with the 31-year-old having to deal with a multitude of serious injuries. In a searingly honest interview with the Salvation Army this week, he revealed that the combination of those fitness struggles with some issues in his personal life led to suicidal thoughts.  'I thought about committing suicide. Tearing my Achilles, my mom passing, my grandma dying a year later, in the midst of COVID,' Wall said. 'Me going to chemotherapy, sitting by my mom taking her last breaths wearing the same clothes for 3 days straight.'

John Wall says that he was in a dark place and considered suicide while away from basketball “I thought about committing suicide. Tearing my Achilles, my mom passing, my grandma dying a...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Amber Heard says she stands by the testimony she gave during a contentious six-week libel trial against former husband Johnny Depp, saying she has “always told the truth.” “That’s all I spoke. And I spoke it to power. And I paid the price,” Heard said in her first post-verdict interview, two weeks after a jury awarded Depp more than $10 million and vindicated his allegations that Heard lied about Depp abusing her. Depp sued Heard for libel in Virginia over a December 2018 op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post describing herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” His lawyers said he was defamed by the article even though it never mentioned his name. Though the jury sided with Depp, Heard was also awarded $2 million over her claim that one of Depp’s attorneys defamed her. ”To my dying day, I’ll stand by every word of my testimony,” Heard told NBC’s “Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie, in an interview airing Tuesday and Wednesday. “I made a lot of mistakes, but I’ve always told the truth.” Watch...

    THE HUMBLE table lamp has been a fixture of British homes for decades and until recently I thought we'd seen every version imaginable. Tall lamps, short lamps, even leather lamps – as far as I was concerned, we'd exhausted all options and any attempt to innovate was fruitless. 2Ikea and Sonos have strapped a high-end speaker to a table lamp – and it's absolutely brilliantCredit: Ikea/Sonos That was, until I got my hands on a "Symfonisk" – the brainchild of audio behemoth Sonos and Swedish retail giant Ikea. While the name might sound like something garbled through a mouthful of baked beans, the product itself is truly remarkable. In case you hadn't guessed yet, it's a sleek and stylish table lamp coupled with a cracking WiFi speaker. Priced at £150, Ikea and Sonos released the curious gizmo in 2019 and wheeled out an updated version last summer. They say Symfonisk 2.0 sounds and looks better than ever before – I took it for a test drive to see what all the fuss was about. Most read in TechTECH SAVVY Android...

When your bra pops out under your shirt, it can easily ruin your entire outfit. 5Fashion expert shares how to hide bra straps when wearing a square-neckCredit: stylexfox/TikTok 5Remove the straps and twist the bra aroundCredit: stylexfox/TikTok A fashion expert who goes by @stylexfox on social media shared how she hides her bra when she has a wide neckline. In the video, she is wearing a white square-neck top but her bra was visible above the neckline of her top. To fix this, she removed her arms from the sleeves of the top and removed the bra strap from her shoulder. She then twisted the bra around to create a smaller loop for her to stick her arm through. She pulled the new smaller strap loop up to her shoulder, and the strap now tucked more towards her armpit, hiding the straps further back. When she pulled her sleeves back on, the bra and its straps were completely out of sight. Most read in LifestyleNO RETURN Meg & Harry's...

    FOOD has been the focus of our attention over the past few days - with turkey basting, cheese boards and debates over what to have for dessert taking centre stage. But the humble slice of toast doesn't get much of a look in at Christmas - and your current technique might need some work. 2A chef has revealed how we've been making our toast wrongCredit: Getty It turns out most of us have been toasting our bread wrong and this new way could make your breakfast much tastier.
