    Get ready, Dolly Parton fans, because you can now rent out the acclaimed singer's tour bus for $10,000 a stay - which comes complete with her old wigs and clothes still in the closets.

The bus was the artist's 'personal sanctuary' on the road for more than a decade, acting not only as the spot for her to rest her head after performing to sold out concerts on tour, but it was also the place where she wrote dozens of her hit songs. Filled with old relics like pieces of her favorite jewelry, wigs, and items of clothing she previously wore, the bus, which is called the Dolly Suite 1986, is a 'once-in-a-lifetime opportunity' for fans and 'the ultimate behind-the-scenes Dolly Parton experience,' according to its website.

    The NCAA's women's basketball champions, the South Carolina Gamecocks, made a statement in the run-up to winning the tournament, when they skipped the national anthem during Friday's final four game against the Louisville Cardinals. The Gamecocks, who went on to win the championship Sunday night, remained in the locker room during the national anthem, protesting racial injustice. The team had been protesting during the anthem since the 2020-21 season, head coach Dawn Staley said. "I love our country," Staley told Andscape. "I don’t like what our country has come to, or what our country has been, but I’d like to think that there are people in our country that’s going to lead us more in a unified way than a divisive way, and I’m here for that." Prior to the 2021-22 season's protest in the locker room, players for the Gamecocks remained seated during the anthem.

    Belarusian exiles have formed the first unit of foreign fighters taking up arms for Ukraine following President Volodymyr Zelensky’s call for a new international brigade to join their war against Russia. They have set up a special unit in the Ukrainian army that is fighting to defend the capital Kyiv after scores of Belarusians flooded into the country to join the battle. Their leaders have issued a warning to Belarusian troops massing on Ukraine’s northern border to either stay at home or join their side ‘fighting for freedom’ against both Russia’s president Vladimir Putin and his ally Alexander Lukashenko in Minsk. Lukashenko hosted the Russian invasion forces and allowed his land to be used for missile launches. The veteran dictator has became reliant on Putin since crushing pro-democracy protests after a disputed presidential election result two years ago.

    Novak Djokovic has successfully challenged the Australian Government’s decision to cancel his visa and will play in the Australian Open. The 34-year-old world tennis No.1 will be free to leave the Park Hotel in Carlton - a ‘human zoo’ where he’s spent the last four nights alongside refugees and detainees - by 7pm. Judge Anthony Kelly’s decision is a huge blow to the government, who hoped he’d be deported this afternoon after claiming he relied on out-of-date ATAGI advice to enter the country.  Djokovic supporters had high hopes for the case after Judge Kelly said he was 'agitated' learning all the steps the world No.1 took to assure he'd be welcome in Australia and free to play his favourite Grand Slam.  'A professor and qualified physician provided the applicant a medical exemption, the basis of which was given by an independent expert panel established by the state government... that document was in the hands of the delegate,' Judge Kelly said. 'The point I'm somewhat agitated about is, what more could this man have done?'   Novak Djokovic has successfully challenged the Australian...
    CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein said Tuesday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that former President Donald Trump was willing to “destabilize the world” to stay in office during the final days of his presidency. Bernstein said, “Well, first of all, this book gives a picture of a deranged demagogue and threat to democracy, as well as a threat to the stability of the world such as we have never seen in our era. So, the rabid nature of Trump’s character, combined with his power and willingness to do anything to stay in office, including to destabilize the world through saying I have to be the president of the United States. Throwing real fear into both our allies and our enemies that the country, itself, was out of control under Trump as he entered the final day of his office. We’ve never seen such a destabilizing moment in our history in this country, led by a president of the United States. A madman and this is a picture of a madman and the people, including the Republican Party, who enabled this madman....
    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley took a series of extraordinary actions after the Jan. 6th Capitol riot out of concerns an 'unstable' President Trump might undertake military action in a desperate bid to stay in office, according to Bob Woodward's bombshell new book. The efforts included Milley as the top ranking uniformed military official meeting with top military officials in the Pentagon two days after the MAGA riot and telling them to keep him in the process for all military actions, including the use of nuclear weapons. It also included back-channel outreach to Milley's counterpart in the Chinese military to provide reassurances the US would not strike its rival.   'If you get calls, no matter who they’re from, there’s a process here, there’s a procedure. No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I'm part of that procedure,' he told top US military officials inside the Pentagon's war room two days after the riot. 'You never know what a president's trigger point is,' Milley told them, according to the...
    President Joe Biden said when pressed Wednesday that U.S. troops were 'going to stay' in Afghanistan until they get American citizens out, even if it means running through an August 31 deadline order. He made the statement despite his own order that U.S. troops will leave by an August 31 deadline, acknowledging the effort could run over if American citizens are still stuck in Afghanistan amid security and bureaucratic hurdles.       'We've got like 10 to 15,000 Americans in the country right now. Right? And are you committed to making sure that the troops stay until every American who wants to be out is out?' George Stephanopoulos of ABC News asked Biden in an interview airing Wednesday and Thursday.  'Yes,' Biden replied. 'So Americans should understand that troops might have to be there beyond Aug. 31st?' the Good Morning America host asked him. President Joe Biden said U.S. troops would remain in Afghanistan to get all U.S. citizens out of Afghanistan, suggesting they would stay even beyond an August 31 deadline if necessary 'No,' Biden dodged. 'Americans should understand that...
    The US is negotiating with the Taliban to get Americans still in Kabul to safety but it's still unclear how many US citizens are still on the ground, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said in a press conference Tuesday.  'Our commanders at the airport are in communication with Taliban commanders on the ground outside the airport,' Kirby confirmed.  He declined to give details of those conversations but said they were happening 'multiple times a day' and that there were no 'hostile interactions' from the Taliban on American people or operations. Marine Major General Hank Taylor confirmed that 165 Americans were evacuated on Monday, along with 'a mix of SIV applicants and third-country nationals' totaling 700 people. 'I don't have the number of [people] waiting for a flight right now,' Taylor said.  When asked about the whereabouts of Americans who might be trapped in Afghanistan anywhere outside the airport, he replied, 'I can't speak to the locations or whereabouts of every single American throughout the country and their desires to stay or to go.'  He confirmed on CNN that the number of...

    March 1, 2021 6:46 PM | With information from EFE 15 minutes. The US government said Monday that it will “explore” how to allow immigrant families separated at the border under former President Donald Trump to stay and live legally in the United States if they so wish, and will finance legal and health services for them. . The US Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, made the announcement during a press conference at the White House, in which he stressed the “urgency” of solving the situation of the hundreds of undocumented minors who were separated from their parents in the border under the Trump administration and whose parents have not yet been located. “Our hope is to reunite families, either here or in their home country. We are confident that we can give them a choice. And if, in fact, they want to reunite here in the United States, we will explore legal avenues for them to stay in the United States. “said Mayorkas. Lawyers for many families affected by the “zero tolerance” policy in 2017 and 2018 have...
    Winter is far from over in Europe. In the Netherlands, winter precipitation is expected from this Saturday evening, all over the country. The snow will continue to fall all night and this Sunday, which can cause a layer of 30 cm in places. Faced with this snowstorm, described as “historic” by the Dutch weather site Weer.nl, the whole country is on red alert. Freezing temperatures and strong winds are also expected. To avoid the risk of accidents, the Dutch were therefore asked to stay indoors as much as possible. The testing and vaccination centers were also closed, forcing more than 40,000 people to postpone their appointments. Nevertheless, the Dutch will not be able to enjoy the joys of winter without restrictions: with the rules relating to the coronavirus pandemic remaining in force, snowball battles are only allowed in the restricted circle of the family. And in Belgium? Although a storm of such intensity is not expected in Belgium, a drop in temperatures and a few centimeters of snow can still be expected in the coming days. A few...
    A tongue-in-cheek German advert urging people to 'be a hero and stay at home' has been released showing an elderly man recalling his 'service' in the 'winter of 2020.'  The short clip produced by the government begins with an elderly man recalling the arrival of the second coronavirus wave while he was a student 'when the whole country's eyes were on us.'  Dramatic violin strings play over a cinematographic montage of the narrator as a 22-year-old lazing around his sofa and saluting the delivery man bringing his pizza. The old man says: 'Our couch was the front line and our patience was our weapon.' Critics say the advert diminishes the catastrophic impacts of lockdown measures which many people will never be able to look back on with a 'smile,' as the narrator does.

    Poland is telling over-70s to stay at home and drafting in military reservists to help deliver food to their homes as the country tries to avoid a full-scale coronavirus lockdown, with the second wave continuing to grow rapidly across Europe.   Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki declared the entire country a 'red zone' today after total infections doubled in two weeks while deaths reached a record 168 on Thursday.  It comes as Europe's daily coronavirus cases crossed 200,000 in a day for the first time after doubling in just 10 days, with many countries setting records and governments torn between fighting the virus and keeping the economy alive.    With seven out of 10 deaths in Poland coming among over-70s, Morawiecki urged the elderly not to go out unless necessary and promised a 'senior support corps' to get them through the crisis.  The 'senior protection' programme will include a mixture of government employees, volunteers, emergency workers and military reservists as Poland's government tries to keep over-70s safe without shutting down the entire economy.  The government-funded support package also includes a dedicated helpline which seniors can...
    A president hospitalized with a potentially deadly illness. It happened before, right here in Denver. Dwight Eisenhower, the 34th president of the United States, was a frequent visitor to the Mile High City, the hometown of his wife, Mamie Geneva Doud, whom he married in 1916. Even after he was elected president in 1952, Eisenhower would come to Colorado to go fishing at the Byers Peak Ranch in Grand County, stay with his wife at the Brown Palace (which still has a suite dedicated to the president) or visit Lowry AFB — all spots that earned the title of "Western White House" and "Summer White House." But the place where he spent the most time in metro Denver?

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden tried a different approach when asked what would happen if President Trump refused to accept losing the Nov. 3 general election. "Every vote in this country is going to be heard, and they'll not be stopped," Biden told MSNBC in a pre-taped interview that aired Saturday. He added, "I'm confident all the irresponsible, outrageous attacks on voting, we'll have an election in this country as we always have had. And he'll leave." Biden was criticized this week by the likes of former Trump national security adviser H.R. McMaster for suggesting the military could intervene during a transition if the president didn't vacate the White House. McMaster's comments follow the president declining to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he is defeated this fall. "The power of the Oval Office depends on those in authority to enforce what he says," the two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware senator told the outlet. "He already had six members of his administration who were four-star generals and major positions in Homeland Security and the like who...
    Americans across the country are capturing hilarious photos of squirrels sprawled out on a variety of surfaces in a last-ditch effort to cool off in the blazing heat.  The small mammals are 'splooting,' with people in New Jersey and Texas capturing the critters laid out on sidewalks, patches of grass and even on walls.  'It's super hot here in Texas right now, obviously, and those squirrels are basically just trying to cool themselves,' Jil Calcote, with the Moonshine Wildlife Rehabilitqtion in Cedar Park, explained to WTNH.     The small mammals have been spotted across the southwest and even in New Jersey as areas continue to see record setting heat 'They are basically getting as much of their body on a cooler surface. If it's cooler than the air outside, they're going to put their body on it and it's going to cool their temperature.'  While people are advised to stay away, as squirrels do bite, those looking to help can give water to help keep them hydrated.   'We always suggest that humans give wildlife their space, to watch from a...
    On Tuesday, the Trump administration walked back recent guidance that would have deported international college and university students if they were enrolled exclusively in online classes this fall. The repeal follows outspoken criticism from universities, legal experts and higher education advocates, who deemed the rules unfairly punitive for foreign students. Federal officials agreed to reverse the policy during a hearing for a lawsuit filed by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology last week. National media outlets reported that the White House was considering scaling back the rule after blowback from dozens of universities across the country. Early last week, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced that nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 visa holders in the United States under the Student Exchange Visitor Program would not be allowed to enter or stay in the country if they were attending schools that will offer only online instruction this fall because of the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, ICE said they must either transfer to a school with in-person instruction or face immigration consequences. Schools offering hybrid instruction, like most Texas universities, would have...
