    A Missouri man was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his pregnant wife after she confronted him about his affair and searched for advice on how to deal with a spouse upset by a pregnancy. Beau Rothwell, 31, was sentenced to life without parole Friday for the November 2019 murder of Jennifer Rothwell, 28, by bludgeoning her with a mallet during an argument over an unidentified woman he was having an affair with. Rothwell, who was convicted in April, was also handed down four years for tampering with evidence, and four more for abandonment of a corpse. Though Rothwell's defense said that the murder was not premeditated and tried to argue for a lesser manslaughter charge, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell said the heavy murder sentencing was exactly what they were looking for.  'We issued this case of murder first and as was stated in sentencing today, we never made any other offers,' Bell said after the sentencing, 'That was not an option. We felt that this individual needed to be held accountable for his...

    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called CNN's Jim Acosta a 'liar' and told the journalist to 'stop harrassing me' as he trailed her on Capitol Hill Thursday asking the Republican lawmaker about her 'martial law' texts.   'Your problem is, you're just one of those liars on television and people hate it. They can't stand the liars on television,' Greene said at one point. 'Do you know why people do not like you? Because you're a liar,' she said at another. Acosta was pressing Greene on a text message she sent to then White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on January 17, 2021 - three days before President Joe Biden was to be sworn-in - in which she mentions that during a private chat with members of Congress 'several are saying the only way to save our Republic is for Trump to call for Marshall (sic) law.'  'I don't know on those things. I just wanted to tell him,' she continued. 'They stole this election. We all know. They will destroy our country next. Please tell him to declassify as much as...

    YOU COULD FORGIVE Ralf Rangnick for asking the officials if he could take a lead from nearby Aintree and have Manchester United pulled up. That happens to horses on the punishing jump track when the jockey clearly realises that they can’t run the race, has given up, and risks further pain if they try to make it carry on. 5Gordon's strike deflected in off under fire captain MaguireCredit: REUTERS 5Ronaldo was left frustrated by the resultCredit: AFP 5Rashford failed to have an impact for the Red DevilsCredit: REUTERS 5The win temporarily eases Everton's relegation fearsCredit: AFP For the sake of all United fans, end this now. It was three years ago this month that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted to experiencing his most depressing afternoon in his time as a player and manager with Man Utd. Of course Watford away this season has since topped that for him, as he was sacked. But back then having recently got the job on a permanent basis, the 2018-19 season started to dramatically unravel with just one win from their final nine games. Read...
    A man who is so tall he was forced to swap planes as he couldn't fit in the seat has gone viral with a glimpse of life at 7 foot 1 inch tall. Beau Brown, 29, from Atlanta, Georgia, made headlines when he was upgraded to first class as an apology for being made to change flights after his legs wouldn't fit in the exit aisle he had booked during a flight to North Carolina last month. The cinematographer, who has a size 18 feet and needs to have all his shoes and clothes specially made, shared a video to TikTok of his everyday life - revealing how he has to bend down to shower, walk through corridors and doorways and even lifts the ceiling tiles with his head when he tries to shower at the gym.

    SICK Americans who are struck down with Covid are ineligible to claim unemployment benefits. Fuelled by the spread of the highly contagious Omicron variant, as well as the Delta strain, the number of people testing positive for the coronavirus is currently ballooning. 2Americans can't claim unemployment benefit if they test positive for Covid but there is a loopholeCredit: Getty The seven-day average of daily new cases is more than 480,000, according to the Johns Hopkins University. Recently, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention reduced the isolation period for people without symptoms from 10 days to five. Anyone who tests positive for Covid-19 and remains at home to isolate and recover is not eligible to claim jobless benefits, according to Michele Evermore, a senior policy advisor for unemployment insurance at the US Department of Labor. Under the law, Americans must be “able and available” for work in order to claim assistance. Those who have Covid do not meet this requirement, according to Evermore.

    Attractive women have revealed how they have been given cash, free concert tickets and even better healthcare thanks to 'pretty privilege'.  Women from around the world have taken to TikTok in recent months to swap stories of the perks they've enjoyed simply because they are conventionally good looking, from free drinks to kinder treatment from strangers.  'Pretty privilege is about how people who are thought to be more attractive, according to society's norms, tend to receive more affirmation, validation,' pyschotherapist Lucy Beresford explained to FEMAIL. 'Or they might receive actual tangible benefits such as fame, fortune or romance.' TikTok user Anjola Fagbemi, who lives in Chicago, shared a TikTok recounting everything she had a received in a single summer as a result of her 'pretty privilege'. She claims she received concert tickets, free taxi rides, meals out and rounds of cocktails, solely because of her looks.  However other TikTok users who admitted to benefitting from 'pretty privilege' argued there are downsides, with some posters claiming they are more likely to be victims of sexual assault or harassment, struggle to make...
    Google is a great research tool but being able to find answers with a few keystrokes is making people think they're smarter than they really are. According to a new study out of the University of Texas at Austin, when people use Google to find information they become more confident in their ability to provide correct answers even without using the search tool. Researchers tested subjects on general knowledge, allowing them to answer questions using their own recollection or by googling the answers. Those who used Google didn't just get more answers right—they were more certain they'd instinctively know the answers to other questions.   In some cases, subjects would later believe they had just recalled information from memory when they had actually googled it.  'When we're constantly connected to knowledge, the boundaries between internal and external knowledge begin to blur and fade,' study author Adrian Ward, a marketing professor at UT Austin's McCombs School of Business, said in a release. 'We mistake the internet's knowledge for our own.'  Scroll down for video  A new study suggests turning to Google for answers...
    A flight attendant has revealed the best seats to get on an economy flight and they aren't the ones in the emergency exit aisle with extra legroom. Sandra Jeenie Kwon, who works in Cabin Crew for Emirates and is based in Dubai, has racked up more than 7 million followers sharing tips and tricks of flying.  And in one video, she's revealed the trick to getting the best seat while flying economy - which is an aisle seat halfway through the back section of the plane. In the clip posted to Instagram and TikTok, Sandra explains that on a standard flight with 52 rows and a six columns  the best seats are 49C, D, F and G because they're far away from a toilet and in the aisle. She added that getting a seat towards the back of the plane are best because the plane fills up from the front first, meaning you're more likely to get a row to yourself.

    Simone Biles has her own leotard line. She designed it herself to inspire other athletes all over the world - and sells them through GK Elite Sportswear for up to $390 a piece. Biles proudly wore several leotards from her own collection at last month's US Gymnastics Championships; one white and lilac, the other black. But they had an extra detail not available to the public – a rhinestone symbol of a goat, on the shoulder of her white leotard and the hip of the black one. Biles didn't choose a goat to personify her brand because they're her favourite animal. She chose it because in sporting terms, it stands for G.O.A.T. or Greatest Of All Time. 'I want kids to learn that, yes, it's okay to acknowledge that you're good or even great at something,' Biles explained, when asked about it. And I have no problem with that. Simone Biles was due to take part in all four parts of the women's team final gymnastics competition. She was the leader of the team, and indeed the unofficial leader...
    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley received a warning about what could be a bumpy transition from a retired military buddy on election night 2020 as returns were coming in.  The friend called and told Milley: 'You are an island unto yourself right now.

    Hunter Biden used the n-word multiple times in conversation with his white, $845-per-hour lawyer, his texts messages reveal. The shocking texts may prove embarrassing for his father President Joe Biden, who just last week gave a speech decrying racism on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre, and has sought to portray racial justice as a top priority for his administration. The president's son joked in a January 2019 text to corporate attorney George Mesires about a 'big penis', and said to the lawyer: 'I only love you because you're black' and 'true dat n***a'. In another text a month earlier he wrote to the Chicago lawyer saying: 'how much money do I owe you. Becaause (sic) n***a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates.' Mesires replied: 'That made me snarf my coffee.' Hunter added: 'That's what im saying ni…', cutting off the racial slur mid-word, then texted a picture to Mesires.  Text messages recovered from Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop show the president's son (pictured last month) used the n-word multiple times in casual conversation with his lawyer...
    As the Brooklyn Nets go on the road to continue their first-round playoff series with the Celtics, Kyrie Irving hopes his return to Boston is free of “racism” from the fans. “It’s not my first time being an opponent in Boston so I’m just looking forward to competing with my teammates and hopefully we can just keep it strictly basketball,” Irving told reporters Tuesday. “There’s no belligerence or any racism going on, subtle racism and people yelling sh*t from the crowd. But even if it is, it’s part of the nature of the game and we’re just gonna focus on what we can control.” Boston has a reputation for targeting Black athletes, with incidents occurring as recently as 2017, when former MLB outfielder Adam Jones claimed he was taunted with racial slurs several times by Red Sox fans. But ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith slammed Irving for blaming his tarnished relationship with Boston on racism. Instead, Smith believes Irving needs to accept some responsibility for the city’s bitterness toward the seven-time NBA All-Star. “Kyrie Irving was wrong to do this. He...

    In bad news for those set to return to work, open-plan offices may make people less productive and satisfied. Having a desk looking out on too many other people makes it harder to concentrate and work productively, a study has found. People lose out when sitting next to a wall rather than a window. And those assigned a desk with too many people behind them also appear to lose focus and feel less like one of the team. The results suggest that, in offices just as in restaurants and pubs, people prefer to sit with their back to the wall rather than out in the middle. Researchers at University College London surveyed 172 people working for a London tech firm in a large open-plan office and looked at their desk position. Open-plan offices may make people less productive and satisfied, according to a study which surveyed 172 people working in a large open-plan office (file photo) They asked people to rate their workplace satisfaction based on factors including their ability to concentrate on tasks, their team identity and cohesion...
    Many of us are guilty of whipping out our smartphone to capture a memorable moment, like visiting a famous historical monument or a stunning piece of art. But scientists say photos can actually impair our memory of events, by making us focus on the act of picture-taking rather the moment itself. In experiments, the researchers in New York found participants were better at recalling details of artwork when they hadn't been taking snaps of them.  Many people take photos as a way of preserving important moments in their life, but the study suggests this doesn't actually work.  Live in the moment: Taking photos can actually impair your memory, according to the study by two experts at Binghamton University.

    Internet data caps are not like pizza — where taking a slice could mean fewer slices for everyone else. I don’t think News Brig readers have trouble understanding this concept? It’s been well-established that ISPs have no trouble delivering unlimited data, even during — say — a global pandemic when vast throngs of the population have suddenly found themselves working from home. This, however, did not stop WideOpenWest (aka WOW!) from using pizza to justify brand-new, possibly-never-before-seen data caps for its cable internet subscribers, starting June 1st, 2021, as Ars Technica reports. Here’s a portion of the email subscribers are receiving: What’s a monthly data usage plan? Let us illustrate … Imagine that the WOW! network is a pizza. Piping hot. Toppings galore. Every WOW! customer gets their own slice of pizza, but the size of their slice is dependent on their Internet service plan.

    Many single women dread being asked about their love life at a family get-together or social event, even if they're perfectly happy without a partner.  This is because many of the phrases and questions they are asked subtly imply there is something wrong with being alone, an expert has explained. Speaking to FEMAIL Hayley Quinn, the UK-based dating expert at Match.com, told how even seemingly innocuous, well-intended phrases and questions can leave single women feeling frustrated, angry or a little put out.      Phrases including 'have you met someone yet' and 'there must be queues of people wanting to date you' can lead to a feeling of being 'single-shamed' because they indicate that listener should be trying their best to get into a relationship. Here, Hayley reveals the five commonly spoken phrases and questions that are best avoided when speaking a single friend or family member about their love life - and the steps you can take to avoid causing offence. Many single women dread being asked about their love life at a family get-together or social event, even if...
    Emily In Paris star Lily Collins has found herself at the centre of a race storm after she was nominated for a prestigious Golden Globe award ahead of a black actress. The 31-year-old was targeted by online trolls who felt Michaela Coel had been unfairly overlooked for her role in the ground-breaking BBC drama I May Destroy You. In a barrage of social media posts, they claimed that Ms Collins was shortlisted because she is white, while Ms Coel missed out because she is black. Cyber-bullies also alleged that Ms Collins was nominated simply because she has a famous father – pop star Phil Collins. Netflix’s Emily In Paris is also up for best comedy series, but the critically acclaimed I May Destroy You did not receive any nominations. Within minutes of the Hollywood shortlists being revealed last Wednesday, Twitter users were alleging racism. One wrote: ‘If you don’t think white supremacy is real, Emily In Paris is nominated for a Golden Globe.’ Emily In Paris star Lily Collins (pictured) has found herself at the centre of a race...
    A WHITE man has won a racism case after he was told that he couldn't cook Indian food because he was English. Colin Sorby was harassed by his supervisor at an 'authentic Indian food' manufacturer in Bradford due to his race. 2Colin Sorby was harassed by his supervisor at an 'authentic Indian food' manufacturer due to his raceCredit: Solent News 2Mr Sorby's boss wanted him removed because he claimed he "didn't fit in"Credit: SWNS:South West News Service Mr Sorby was told he "didn't know how to cook the cuisine because you are English".

Now Mr Sorby, who was only employed at Bradford Management Services for five months, could receive thousands of pounds in compensation after successfully suing the company for racial discrimination. Mr Sorby was also 'victimised' for lodging a complaint against Mr Akhtar after suffering racial discrimination, the tribunal ruled. Between July 2019 and November 2021, Mr Sorby was working at Mumtaz Foods in Bradford - one of the...
    Donald Trump is losing. The man who devotes every second of his waking life to the obsessive pursuit of winning is staring down the barrel of an election loss in four weeks that could be a total blow-out. A new CNN/SSR poll published yesterday revealed he's 16 points behind his Democratic opponent Joe Biden. And the network's poll of polls puts Biden's lead at 11 points. He's draining support from seniors and women in particularly alarming fashion and if things get much worse, Trump could even end up being the new Walter Mondale, who was obliterated in 49 out of 50 states by Ronald Reagan in the 1984 election. Of course, Trump was trailing badly in the polls before the 2016 election too. Then, I felt the polls were wrong. I was filming down in Texas and Florida at the time and could sense the Trump Train was steaming powerfully towards the White House, so repeatedly predicted a shock win. But this feels different. Very different. Trump's not the renegade outsider now, promising to smash everything up and 'Make America...

    A couple have slammed people who accuse them of cheating after one of them invited an old school friend to join their relationship.  Music teacher, Amber Parker, 24, and boyfriend Brandon Meadows, 23, from Muskegon, Michigan, first met on dating app Tinder in January 2017 and their initial attraction soon blossomed into an official relationship.  Amber and Brandon were strictly monogamous at first, but discussed the possibility of opening their relationship up to a third person.  It wasn't until New Year's Eve 2018 when they met one of Brandon's old school friends, Eli Schalk, 21, at a party, that they realised that Eli, who is non-binary, could be the perfect person to add to their relationship.  Music teacher, Amber Parker, 24, (right) and boyfriend Brandon Meadows, 23, (left) from Muskegon, Michigan, formed a throuple with Eli Schalk, 21, (centre) in January 2019 Amber and Brandon had been dating for several from January 2017 before they decided they wanted to bring a new person into their relationship.

    Does your Netflix home screen — you know, the one with your user profiles — now have a “Shuffle Play” button? That’s because Netflix is actually planning to bring a shuffle feature to its collection of streaming movies and TV shows, letting you avoid yet another argument with your spouse/housemate/partner/etc about what you’ll be watching this evening. The company is already testing a few potential ways the feature might look, including the “Play Something” variant that my colleague Julia Alexander snapped a quick picture of below. But it sounds like it’s not just an experiment: “The hope is to absolutely productize something,” a spokesperson told Variety . Variety writes that the test is only available on “connected TV devices” right now. I didn’t see it on my Roku. When Julia gave the “Play Something” button a spin, it fired up an episode of Netflix’s Umbrella Academy with the explanation “because you watched Spider-Man.” (Both are about comic book superheroes and — depending on which Spider-Man we’re talking about, Julia? — fairly well received, so I...

    Ricky Gervais has continued to slam 'cancel culture' as he defended the use of free speech in a new interview. The comedian, 59, who delivered a series of controversial gags at the 77th Golden Globes awards ceremony back in January, described 'wokeness' as 'a weird sort of fascism' amid calls for 'the free exchange of information and ideas.' He said: 'There's this new weird sort of fascism of people thinking they know what you can say and what you can't and it's a really weird thing. Just because you're offended it doesn't mean you're right.' 'Just because you're offended it doesn't mean you're right': Ricky Gervais slammed 'cancel culture' as he defended the use of free speech in a new interview (pictured in January) The After Life creator shared his thoughts on online shaming after 150 celebrated authors, academics and journalists including Margaret Atwood, Salman Rushdie, Martin Amis and Noam Chomsky signed a letter criticising 'cancel culture'.  The media personality said on talkRadio earlier this month: 'There's this new trendy myth that people who want free speech want to say awful...
    eldar nurkovic/Shutterstock After months of mostly staying home, learning how to interact with people outside your household  can feel awkward.  There's little to no relevant research on how this period of physical isolation could affect adults' social skills, but experts doubt it's had a significant impact on most.  The awkward part, they say, is more likely related to how we all learn to navigate the new normal and people's differing perspectives on how seriously to follow precautions.  Understand the discomfort is normal and sharing can help us all get past it and stay safe.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. When Christina Juan met a friendly couple while walking her new puppy, she asked them their dog's name. The question would not have been awkward had Juan not asked the same question just a minute before.  "My social skills have definitely regressed" from having so few physical interactions during the coronavirus pandemic, Juan, a 33-year-old researcher in Washington DC, told Insider.  She's not alone in that feeling. Others have reported concerns about how they'll ask for help...

The woman seemed to go agitated as the employee explained they must take her temperature as well. "You can't take my temperature, that's against the law," she said. "You're not an MD." In the video, the woman tried to cover her mouth with her hand as a "face covering", however, the employee insisted she must wear a face mask. As employees continued to tell her the office's policy, she claimed she talked to her attorney before arriving and stated she had the right to sue for harassment. 2 The woman tried to cover...
    Director Liz Garbus said in an interview with Insider that she thinks technology and a need for control might be why we're so obsessed with true crime stories.  In an interview for her new documentary "I'll Be Gone in the Dark," Garbus said that true crime isn't a new genre, but technology could have changed the way we think about it.  "We have our phones constantly wired into our brains. And that doesn't leave a lot of time for self-reflection," Garbus said.  The director also suggested that for women, and people who are victims of crimes, watching true crime shows can be a way to regain control in their daily lives.  "It's a way to sort of look at something and feel like you can kind of control it — you can close the book, you can turn off the TV, when in real life, you don't have that power," she said.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Director Liz Garbus told Insider that she thinks technology, as well as a growing need for control, might explain our...
    Michael Corn June 20, 2020 6:00PM (UTC) There is a reason that photography and videography are frowned upon at protests like the ones currently sweeping the nation: Surveillance capitalism has made it easy for even masked protesters to be identified. Both authorities and everyday citizens have access to search tools that can "out" someone from even the tiniest clues; even peaceable demonstrators are right to fear being fired or publicly shunned if their presence at a protest is discovered and then widely broadcast. Thus it is no accident that civil rights and privacy are intimately interlinked. Indeed, as law enforcement departments have become more militarized, they have equipped themselves with increasingly sophisticated surveillance technology — from devices that intercept cell phone signals to backdoors into social media sites. Yet the civil rights battle over the right privacy is not waged on the street with protest signs and banners — at least, not generally. Privacy struggles are waged in more subtle ways, often through individual choices we make on our gadgets. We are told to "resist" by abandoning digital services; to...
    Democratic lawmakers are not standing up against criminal activity during protests against the death of George Floyd because they don't want to alienate black voters ahead of the November presidential election, American civil rights Attorney Leo Terrell asserted Friday evening. In an interview on "Hannity" with host Sean Hannity, the radio talk show host noted that while Floyd's death was a "tragedy" and there is a "universal acceptance" that his murder was wrong, those protesting his death in cities like New York and Minneapolis are using Floyd's death as an excuse to break the law. MINNEAPOLIS COP WHO KNELT ON HANDCUFFED BLACK MAN ARRESTED "I am disappointed, shocked that there has been no Democratic lawmaker in the last 72 hours who have focused on the criminal activities of these individuals who are not protesting," he stated. "These are criminals and they are breaking the law using the guise of caring about George Floyd." "And, I encourage all you Democratic lawmakers, all you lawmakers, to stand up and criticize these criminals." In this May 29, 2020, photo, a check-cashing business burns...
