    The Hamptons may appear to be the perfect getaway for those looking to escape New York City, however, dozens have taken to social media to reveal the popular celebrity vacation spot isn't exactly all it's made out to be and rather than experiencing a celebrity experience they were met with outrageous prices, overcrowded beaches and hour long waits. Located in Long Island, New York, the Hamptons is well-known for its wild night life, luxurious mansions, and endless beaches, and has become the go-to place for many stars to spend their free time in, many of whom have purchased summer homes in the area - including Beyoncé and Jay-Z, actor Alec Baldwin, Neil Patrick Harris, Julianne Moore and Robert Downey Jr. Between its delicious food, stunning shores, and exclusive parties, the hotspot has transformed into an exclusive club with middle-class people from NYC dying to get into it.  And while celebrities' Instagram make the upscale beach town appear lavish, the average person doesn't have a private helicopter to get them to and from the summer getaway and are welcomed with overcrowded...

Businesses in China have brought in $204.6million less than the US this year, marking the closest the two countries have ever been in the global revenue stakes. Compared to the US, China has 136 companies to America’s 124 on the list, with the US making up 29.7 per cent of the total revenue and China 29.2 per cent. The US’s percentage of the Fortune Global 500 is down from last year, when they hit 30.4per cent of the total. Fortune Global 500 list revealed that if Taiwan’s revenue was included, then the Chinese dragon would have overtaken the US for the first time in history. However American profits are more than double what their Chinese counterparts are taking home, with US companies pocketing $1,246.3billion this year compared to China’s $560.99 billion. China has come closer to the US that ever before, with their companies bringing in almost as much total revenue as world leaders America Businesses...

    SPARE change can be worth exponentially more than its face value. Certain coins, because of errors or scarcity, are immensely valuable to collectors and can command hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction. 5These coins have no mark indicating where they were minted Some coins are rare because they include something they shouldn't, like this nickel mistakenly embedded with copper that sold for $150. Others can be expensive because of the lack of a feature, such as coins that have no mint marks. When coins are produced, they are typically stamped with a small letter indicating the US Mint facility they were made at. San Francisco coins typically bear an S, Denver coins are marked with Ds, and so on.

    IN most cases, rashes are common and usually turn out to be harmless. But a rise in monkeypox cases has meant that many Brits are being hyper-vigilant when it comes to new marks, lesions and blisters. 5 Rashes can be caused by different ailments. The graphic above shows what a monkeypox rash looks like (top left). A meningitis rash is likely to be darker (top right) and won't fill with puss. And eczema rashes (bottom left) will often be red and scaly. Rashes that are associated with lymphoma (bottom right) will vary in size and shape In the UK there have been 190 detected infections, and while the risk to the public remains low, experts have urged people to get to know the key signs of the monkeypox rash.

    Astronomers in Germany have spotted a fiery 'nova explosion' from a white dwarf for the very first time. Researchers observed the event, thanks to data from the joint German-Russian eROSITA X-ray telescope, which is stationed in space about 900,000 miles away. The X-ray flash – dubbed YZ Reticuli – completely overexposed the centre of eROSITA's detector, which records emitted photons.  White dwarfs are the incredibly dense remains of sun-sized stars after they exhaust their nuclear fuel, shrunk down to roughly the size of Earth.  Sometimes such dead stars flare back to life in a super hot explosion and produce a fireball of X-ray radiation.  These nova explosions occur from white dwarfs in a binary system – a system that consists of two stars that are gravitationally bound. Astronomers have spotted a fiery explosion on a white dwarf, called a nova explosion, for the very first time. Pictured is the researchers' recreation of the event, which occurred in 2020 Overexposed image picked up of the nova explosion event by the eROSITA X-ray telescope, which launched in 2019 The researchers have now been able...
    SANTA CLARA — Brock Purdy got put on the spot in his first act as the 49ers’ latest quarterback, and he responded splendidly Saturday, shortly after being the final pick of the NFL Draft. What does he know about the 49ers’ storied history of quarterbacks, past and present? “Obviously they had one of the greatest in Joe Montana, and Steve Young. After that, I’m not so sure,” Purdy responded in a video conference call. That sums up the 49ers’ plight the past two decades. After Young’s 1999 exit, the 49ers have started 18 different quarterbacks. Purdy is well aware of the last two, mind you. “With Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo and what they did last year, and the years before with Jimmy G, I respect it so much and it’s honestly enjoyable watching him,” Purdy said. “How Jimmy operated in the system and was so decisive, I really respected that. “With Trey Lance, he had a great career in college and he’s a guy coaches want to build around, I respect that, too. I want to go in and...
    The New York City attorney that berated Mayor Eric Adams about mask mandates claims her termination from her job with the city stemmed from remarks she made that are 'constitutionally protected' under free speech.  Daniela Jampel confronted Adams during his Monday press conference about mask mandates for kids under age five. The mother-of-three, who had worked for the city Law Department since 2016, was fired later that day. 'I am extremely confident that the decision to terminate my employment was a result of my constitutionally protected speech regarding my views on mask mandates,' Jampel said in a statement Thursday. 'Regardless of an individual’s position on mask mandates, I believe that all Americans understand and appreciate the sacrosanct right of freedom of speech under the First Amendment and the ability to criticize the government without fear of retaliation.'   'There are 400,000 people who work for the City of New York. Every single one of them deserves to ability, as private citizens, to speak about matters of public concern and regardless of their stance on a given issue,' she added. Although the attorney argues...
    HARRY KANE moved level with Sir Bobby Charlton on 49 international goals after scoring England's winner against Switzerland at Wembley. Only Wayne Rooney has now scored more goals than the Tottenham striker for the Three Lions following his 78th minute spot-kick. 10Harry Kane scored the winning goal for England against Switzerland from the penalty spotCredit: Reuters 10Tottenham striker Kane has moved level with Bobby Charlton on 49 international goalsCredit: Paul Marriott Gareth Southgate's side were forced to come back from behind to beat Switzerland after Breel Embolo opened the scoring in the 22nd minute. The Borussia Monchengladbach forward peeled away from Ben White to get on the end of Xherdan Shaqiri's cross to head beyond Jordan Pickford. And it could have been 2-0 if Pickford didn't push Fabian Frei's close-range shot onto the crossbar shortly after. But England levelled up the scoring just before the break after Luke Shaw smashed the ball home from the edge of the box in what was his first international goal since the Euro 2020 final.

    MIAMI — You can teach an old player new skills. Taj Gibson, 36, has flashed a highly proficient 3-point shot that may help extend his career, delaying perhaps his eventual foray into coaching. Gibson has drained eight of his last nine 3-pointers, a stretch dating back to January. It’s a small sample size but Gibson has finally earned Tom Thibodeau’s trust from long distance, providing the Knicks their only outside threat among their four centers. His 12 3-pointers heading into Friday’s game against the Heat is already a career best. “He didn’t let me shoot as much as I wanted to,” Gibson said of his longtime coach. “Now he’s seen me putting the work in and now he’s seen guys like, ‘Hey, Taj is really working,’ he’s like, ‘Alright, shoot it.’ I’m rocking out with it right now.” Gibson, the eighth-oldest player in the NBA, has a team option on his contract for next season at $5.2 million, which is above his market value and will probably send him into free agency. The emergence of Jericho Sims has left the...

    NASA launches Juno spacecraft: Data from the Juno spacecraft allow scientists to map Jupiter’s magnetic field, including the Great Blue Spot. 1/6 The US space agency NASA’s Juno mission recently flew 38 planes from near Jupiter. The mission was extended earlier this year and Juno was to fly through Jupiter’s moon Canymeet. The Juno spacecraft flew both Jupiter and Canymeet and recorded some amazing images and a mysterious sound. 2/6 NASA says the Juno spacecraft recorded 50 seconds of sound as it passed near the moon Canymeet.

    TWO-THIRDS of sports fans are superstitious when it comes to game day, according to new research. From wearing a specific jersey every time their team plays (50 percent) — with some not washing it until the end of the season (44 percent) — to sitting in a specific spot (42 percent), sports fans aren’t willing to take any chances.  3More than half of sports enthusiasts have superstitions about their teamsCredit: Getty 3Many will wear the same jersey thinking it's luckyCredit: Getty The survey of 2,400 Americans who regularly watch and/or attend sporting events found 62 percent have even blamed themselves for their team’s loss — as they weren’t wearing the right shirt or had moved from their spot on the couch during the game.

Commissioned by Tipico Sportsbook and conducted by OnePoll, the survey found the stakes will be even higher as families gather for Thanksgiving. Eight...

    Shooting stars from the Orionid meteor shower will delight skywatchers tonight, as up to 20 space rocks are expected to shoot overhead per hour.  Orionid meteors occur every autumn when Earth passes through the stream of debris left by Halley's Comet, and will reach their peak tonight and tomorrow night.  As the comet moves around the sun, it leaves tiny pieces of dust and icy debris behind, and as the Earth passes through this cloud of matter, they burn up in the atmosphere, generating fast, bright streaks of light known as meteors.  The darker the sky, the more you will see, with a maximum of about 20 per hour.  However, the nearly full Hunter's Moon will also peak this evening - the bright light from which could dramatically reduce viewing to just two or three meteors per hour. The weather will also present a further hindrance to a good viewing of the meteor shower, with rain and clouds expected across much of the UK tonight.  Shooting stars from the Orionid Meteor Shower will delight skywatchers tonight, as up to 20...

    Lucky stargazers have taken to social media to share stunning photos of the Northern Lights seen in the skies above the UK, US and Canada last night. The typically green and pink light shows occur when electrically charged particles from the Sun excite gases in the Earth's atmosphere, causing them to glow. The wavy patterns they assume resemble curtains of light, and reflect the lines of force in the Earth's geomagnetic field along which the solar particles travel. Normally, the aurorae are only visible at higher latitudes, centred around Earth's magnetic poles, However, yesterday's huge solar storm increased their range, meaning the lights were visible as far south as New York in the US, and in parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England in the UK.  Scroll down for video Lucky stargazers have taken to social media to share stunning photos of the Northern Lights seen in the skies above the UK, US and Canada last night.

    NASA's Ingenuity helicopter captured a stunning view of the Martin landscape, and hidden in the image searching for life on Mars is the Perseverance rover.  Driving through Jezero crater at 0.01 miles per hour, the Perseverance rover is taking rock samples and using its on board instruments to find signs of ancient life.  Ingenuity has been helping the rover in its mission, having recently completed its 11th flight on the Red Planet where it captured images of rocks and sand dunes.  Along with capturing the boulders, sand dunes, and rocky outcrops prevalent in the 'South Séítah' region of Jezero Crater, a few of the images capture NASA's Perseverance rover amid its first science campaign. Despite being over 9ft long and weighing more than a tonne, the rover fades into the background of the image, hidden among massive rocks when seen from 39ft up.  Along with capturing the boulders, sand dunes, and rocky outcrops prevalent in the 'South Séítah' region of Jezero Crater, a few of the images capture NASA's Perseverance rover amid its first science campaign - but can...

    For the first time ever, astronomers have directly detected light from behind a supermassive black hole. The discovery proves Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity was right — again.  Using the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton and NASA's NuSTAR space telescopes, researchers were observing the black hole as it flung X-rays out into the universe. The black hole is about 10 million times more massive than our sun, and is located in the center of a nearby spiral galaxy called I Zwicky, 1,800 million light-years away from Earth. After observing a series of bright flares of X-rays, something unprecedented occurred — more flashes that were smaller, later and different "colors" than their predecessors. According to a study published this week in the journal Nature, the "echoes" of light appeared consistent with X-rays reflected from behind the black hole — a very strange place for light to originate.   Black holes' gravitational pulls are so powerful that light cannot escape them. However, light can "echo," wrapping around the back of the celestial phenomenon and allowing astronomers to see it.  "Any light...

    AN ADORABLE pup decided to hide from his owner among a massive collection of teddy bears. The owner struggled to find it as it got mixed up with her teddy collection- can you spot the REAL dog? 5A dog is hidden in the pile of teddy bears 5Can you spot the real dog? A woman from the subprovincial city of Shenyang in the Chinese province of Liaoning, is the owner of an extensive collection of cuddly teddy bears. The collection requires regular cleaning to be kept spick and span as the stuffed toys attract dust. While the woman was in the middle of spring cleaning, her pooch, appropriately named Teddy, was trying to play with the toys interfering with the cleanup. She eventually picked him up and dumped him in the middle of them so she could get on with the task at hand. Shortly afterwards, when she wanted to take a break she realised her dog had fallen asleep between the teddy bears and she could not find him. She then grabbed her phone and filmed the amusing incident...

    Scientists have long thought that meteorites, pieces of asteroids that hit the Earth's ground, have emanated from different space rocks in the asteroid belt. A new study suggests they may have a common, unknown origin, however. The research looked at more than 500 million years worth of marine sedimentary rock containing meteorites, examining 15 different windows of time and found that all originate in the asteroid belt, but it's unclear where in the asteroid belt they're coming from. 'We argue that meteorites and small asteroids delivered to Earth in deep time are not primarily linked to the sequence of asteroid family-forming events,' researchers Fredrik Terfelt and Birger Schmitz wrote in the study's abstract.  'Another, as yet unknown, delivery process appears to be associated with a very restricted region in the asteroid belt.'

The 41-year-old said it was an intervention led by Katie Price that helped save her, but how can you spot if your loved one is battling an addiction? 3Singer and TV personality Michelle Heaton has revealed she has been battling addictionCredit: Dan Charity / The Sun The Liberty X singer said that ultimately, she was killing herself with her drug and alcohol use. She said: “I was crying out for help when I couldn’t actually ask for help. But when you’re an addict, it feels like there’s no way out.” Michelle had been downing up to two bottles of wine and a bottle of vodka virtually every day since 2018, and snorting cocaine. She was staring death in the face but wouldn’t accept it until she went into rehab. Michelle recalls: “There was a moment when I said, ‘I’m not going’. My best friend kicked off at me and said, ‘Michelle — you’re dying’. “It was a joint...
    GALVESTON, Texas -- Dennis Byrd was first hired by The Spot in Galveston, Texas when he was 18. He was saving money for college and drove home every weekend from LSU to work at the restaurant.Byrd bought the business just a few years later, and put everything he had into making it one of the most popular spots on the island. The Spot has now grown into a five-venue business called Island Famous.He said, "In the very beginning of owning the restaurant, it was lots of long hours, lots of long days. I spent four and a half years of my career never taking a day off. It was a lot of hard work over a long time, but I wouldn't change it today." Byrd has faced other challenges along the way. "We're not a stranger to adversity. Hurricanes come and hurricanes go, and we like to be the last one to be closed and the first one to be open," he said. But no one was prepared when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Byrd was forced to furlough 173 employees...
