    The Queen died at Balmoral of ‘old age’, it was revealed yesterday – the first time a monarch’s death certificate is believed to have been made public. But the document also raises intriguing questions after details on it confirmed that Prince Harry was not informed of his grandmother’s death for more than three hours. Only her two eldest children – King Charles and his sister, Princess Anne – were with their mother when she died at 3.10pm on September 8. Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie, as well as Prince Andrew and Prince William, were all on a plane heading for Scotland at the time and are believed to have been informed mid-air. Prince Harry, meanwhile, had not even made it to an airport amid apparent confusion over whether he should travel up to Aberdeenshire with his wife Meghan. He finally got a private jet from Luton at 5.35pm, landing at Aberdeen at 6.47pm.

    Age is just a number, so the saying goes, but for a select few celebrities - blessed with personal trainers and beauty treatments galore - it's a number that doesn't quite match their still-youthful looks. A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow has been breaking the internet with her 'Birthday Suit' celebration snaps on Instagram in recent years and, to celebrate her 50th birthday on 27th September, the Goop founder decided to go all out.  The actress posed nude, proving she's in her golden era, by covering half of her body in gold spray paint. And she looks just as good as she did 25 years ago at the height of her film career. Alongside the likes of Jennifer Aniston, JLo and Halle Berry, Paltrow has seemingly discovered the fountain of youth, showing few signs of ageing over the past few decades.  Here, FEMAIL rounds up the celebrities over the age of 50 whose faces haven't changed... GWYNETH PALTROW  AGE: 50  Taken 26 years apart, these photos show how Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow, 50, has barely changed. She is pictured on the left at...
    The political equivalent of a kamikaze mission just months before the midterms. An angry, unhinged 24-minute primetime screed that corrodes the reputation of the White House. The final nail in the coffin of American unity. Biden's speech to the nation at Philadelphia's Independence Hall was all of these things. And it was horrifying. I am no Trump supporter. I am no MAGA person. But I have met and know many, many people who are, my friends among them. They are some of the 74 million Americans who Biden failed to win over at the last election. Then, he billed himself as the statesman who promised to work for them too, and to heal the emotional wounds brought on by the chaos of the Trump years. Instead he is stereotyping Republicans as insurrectionist threats to democracy. And that is as wrong and dangerous as what President Trump did while in office. It is divisive and it's throwing gasoline on a fire already raging fire in our country. How long ago it seems that Biden vowed to heal 'the soul of the...

    FINDING clothes that are flattering isn't always easy if you're a curvy girl. It can feel like a lot of clothes just aren't made with bigger bodies in mind. 5Callie tried on Victoria's secret clothes to see if they were any good for curvy girlsCredit: Tiktok/@hotpinkandglitter Victoria's Secret had a bit of a bad reputation for not catering to bigger bodies, but the brand have seemingly been working hard to change that.

Jim Talent is a former U.S. senator from Missouri and the Chairman of the Reagan Institute's National Leadership Council The outlook for the U.S. economy is bad and potentially getting worse. On Thursday, the Commerce Department released new consumer spending numbers showing that the prices Americans are paying for goods and services climbed 6.3% over the past year, as inflation maintained its upward momentum. Just 24 hours earlier, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell warned, yet again, that his efforts to rein in runaway price increases by raising interest rates may plunge the nation into recession. And he said it's worth the risk. 'The bigger mistake to make—let's put it that way—would be to fail to restore price stability,' he said at the European Central Bank's annual economic policy conference in Portugal. Prior to that revised GDP numbers showed the US economy contracted even more than initially reported in the first quarter of the fiscal year,...
    The World Bank has slashed its global growth forecast by nearly a third for 2022, warning that the risk of 1970s-style 'stagflation' is increasing and saying many countries now face recession. 'The danger of stagflation is considerable today,' World Bank President David Malpass wrote in the foreword to Tuesday's report, which cut global growth projections to 2.9 percent for 2022. Russia's invasion of Ukraine had only magnified the slowdown in the global economy, which was now entering what could become 'a protracted period of feeble growth and elevated inflation,' according to the Global Economic Prospects report, warning that the outlook could still grow worse.  'Subdued growth will likely persist throughout the decade because of weak investment in most of the world. With inflation now running at multi-decade highs in many countries and supply expected to grow slowly, there is a risk that inflation will remain higher for longer,' wrote Malpass.  A chart shows the World Bank's revised growth forecasts for the world, advanced economies, and Emerging Markets and Developing Economies (EMDE) 'The danger of stagflation is considerable today,' World Bank...

    On Friday’s broadcast of CNN International’s “Quest Means Business,” Jason Furman, who served as Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Barack Obama and on the Council of Economic Advisers and the National Economic Council under President Bill Clinton and is currently a Professor of the Practice of Economic Policy at Harvard University and the Harvard Kennedy School, stated that while some action was needed, President Joe Biden’s economic stimulus plan was too big, badly designed, ultimately “brought us a lot more inflation than it did in terms of economic growth.” And “got the balance wrong.” Host Richard Quest asked, “Do you think the Biden — that the Biden stimulus plan passed in the first days was a mistake, it was unnecessary fuel on the fire?” Furman responded, “I think it was too large. I think it was poorly designed. And I think it brought us a lot more inflation than it did in terms of economic growth. Something was needed. Not everything’s terrible in the economy, we have a 3.6% unemployment rate. We’re creating jobs at a...

    Lindsay Lohan has acknowledged that her celebrity made growing up a bit more difficult for her siblings, who had to content with whatever she was up to in the public eye. As the oldest sibling, Lindsay 35, led the way for brother Michael, 34, sister Ali, 28, and brother Cody, 25 — and in a new interview with Vogue, she admits that things weren't always easy for them when she was in the spotlight. 'Growing up, my siblings definitely had it harder than most kids their age, because I was such a public figure that they couldn't really escape any of the results of the things I did, by mistake, in front of the public eye,' she said. Lindsay also stressed how important her family is to her, causing her to tear up slightly, fan her eyes, and declare, 'I'm such a sap sometimes.'

    Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell said it would be appropriate for the central bank to raise interest rates 0.25% at its meeting in two weeks amid steep inflation, but declined to predict how the Russia-Ukraine war will affect the U.S. economy.  'I think it is appropriate for us to move ahead. Inflation is too high,' he said in remarks before the House Financial Services Committee.  'I'm inclined to propose and support a 25 basis point rate increase,' Powell continued, adding that rates may rise more aggressively depending on the affects of the war in Ukraine.  He told lawmakers that the affects of U.S. sanctions on Russia back at home are 'highly uncertain.'  'The ultimate economic effects of the war, and all of the sanctions and the events yet to come, are just very highly uncertain, and we need to understand that.'  Powell said the inflation facing the nation now is 'nothing like anything we've experienced in decades ... not only that it's different it's coming from the goods sector.'   'I think it is appropriate for us to move ahead.

    According to the Bible, it’s better to give than to receive. And, as far as keeping the heart healthy, that certainly seems to be the case. Scientists found giving presents lowered volunteers’ blood pressure and heart rate and kept arteries feeding the heart in good condition. But being the recipient of a gift did not have the same powerful effect. The findings, by psychologists at University of California Los Angeles, suggest giving Christmas presents to friends and family may help to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Scientists found giving presents lowered volunteers’ blood pressure and heart rate and kept arteries feeding the heart in good condition (stock image) British consumers spend up to £80billion a year during the festive season, the bulk of which goes on gifts. Previous studies have shown the act of giving can benefit mood and mental wellbeing by improving self-esteem. But the UCLA team wanted to see if it also benefited the heart. They recruited 90 college students and first exposed them to a stressful situation – telling them they had just minutes...
    Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) joined the cohosts of The View on Wednesday and was asked about the smash-and-grab robberies plaguing his state. Cohost Joy Behar noted that even wine stores Newsom owns have been broken into. “Critics in law enforcement blame this on your lax bail and theft policies emboldening criminals,” Behar said, “Here is your chance to tell us.” Newsom responded, “They couldn’t even identify what they were referring to as it relates to those policies, so that is a lot of rhetoric.” “That said, it’s unacceptable what is happening,” he continued. “Those images are unacceptable. I can give you facts, and I’m happy to share them, but there are feelings as well. Feelings matter more. Do I feel safe? Do I feel protected?” Newsom defended himself, noting a recently announced six-year jail sentence for an organized group of criminals. However, he also argued that the crime wave is not unique to California: We recognize that we have to do more and better. But it’s not unique to California. You have seen it in Chicago and Minnesota.

    A new study out of Columbia University determined that summer sea ice in 'the Last Ice Area' now covers half the space it did 40 years ago.  The 1,200-mile region north of Greenland and the Canadian Arctic archipelago has historically been covered in ice year-round, but rising temperatures fueled by climate change are causing even this remote region to melt during the summer.    Researchers say summer sea ice will be 'dramatically thin' by 2050, endangering the polar bears, walruses, seals, and other arctic creatures who make it their habitat. If carbon emissions continue at their current rate, they add,  summer sea ice will disappear completely by 2100. ''If the year-round ice goes away, entire ice-dependent ecosystems will collapse, and something new will begin.',' Robert Newton, a research scientist at Columbia's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory said in a statement.    Scroll down for video The Last Ice Area, where sea ice traditionally remains frozen year round, has lost 40 percent of its area since the early 1980s The surface of the Arctic Ocean still continues to freeze in winter 'and probably will for...
    Cities and states that require workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 may actually boost their immunization rates, a public health expert says. This week, New York and California became the first states to mandate that public employees get COVID-19 shots or undergo weekly testing. Dr Barun Mathema, an assistant professor of epidemiology at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, told ABC News that this strategy may be even more effective that the vaccine lotteries that several states attempted. He says the programs will increase vaccine confidence and encourage workers to get their shots to avoid the hassle of weekly tests. 'This is saying the government, unambiguously, supports vaccination. One can try things like lotteries to entice individuals but, to me, this is a serious and thoughtful approach,' he told ABC News.   'There will [also] certainly be some people who find the constant testing inconvenient.'  New York and California are the first states to mandate that public workers get COVID-19 vaccines or undergo weekly testing as cases rise due to the Indian 'Delta' variant.

    Earth's energy imbalance has doubled in the 14-year period from 2005 to 2019, according to a study led by NASA researchers.  This means more energy is being absorbed from the Sun than is reflected back to space, throwing the Earth's energy 'out of balance' and warming the planet.  The Earth's positive energy imbalance is due to increasing atmospheric pollution in the form of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and ozone (O3), researchers say.  These pollutants block the Earth's radiant heat from escaping into space, increasing absorption of sunlight and trapping heat within the atmosphere.  Unless the rate of heat uptake subsides, greater changes in climate than are already occurring should be expected, the experts warn.  Scroll down for video  WHAT IS ENERGY IMBALANCE? Energy imbalance is described as the difference between the amount of energy from the sun arriving at the Earth and the amount returning to space.   Earth's climate is determined by a delicate balance between how much of the Sun's radiative energy is absorbed in the atmosphere and at the surface and how much thermal...
    The lobbying firm owned by the brother of a top advisor to President Joe Biden is earning nearly five times as much as it did last year, the Center for Responsive Politics revealed. White House counselor Steve Ricchetti’s brother, Jeff Ricchetti, earned $820,000 in lobbying revenue between January and March, five times what he earned during the same period last year, lobbying filings showed according to the Tuesday report. The last time the firm earned that much in the first quarter was during former President Barack Obama’s first term in 2009 when they made $840,000. Steve Ricchetti played a critical role working on Biden’s proposed $2.3 trillion infrastructure package and is one of the president’s most prominent advisors. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the large increase in lobbying revenue “indicates that corporate interests believe Ricchetti can help them access the White House.” (RELATED: Biden Bans Political Appointees From Lobbying For Two Years) Counselor to the President Steve Ricchetti (C) gestures after playing a round of golf with US President Joe Biden at Wilmington Country Club in Wilmington, Delaware...
    More On: hunter biden Trump takes shot at Hunter Biden — saying kids must stay from drugs, booze Hunter Biden’s full of it — he knows it’s his laptop, and he wasn’t hacked NPR issues stunning mea culpa after claiming Hunter Biden laptop story was ‘discredited’ by intelligence Hunter Biden finally admits laptop at center of Post exposé could ‘absolutely’ belong to him Hunter Biden has thrust himself back into the limelight. At this point, you have to seriously question whether he’s a masochist. Or he just needs the money. Could go either way. Prince Biden began promoting his to-be-released memoir, “Beautiful Things,” starting with an excerpt from the book recounting, in part, the attacks he faced from President Trump during the 2020 campaign. “I became a proxy for Donald Trump’s fear that he won’t be reelected,” Biden wrote. “He pushed debunked conspiracy theories about work I did in Ukraine and China . . .” Of all the things we’ve learned about Biden within the last year, “debunked conspiracy theories” are the least embarrassing.

    California’s annual rainy season is getting underway about 27 days later now than it did in the 1960s, according to new research. Instead of starting in November, the onset of the rains is now delayed until December, and the rain, when it comes, is being concentrated during January and February. “The onset of the rainy season has been progressively delayed since the 1960s, and as a result the precipitation season has become shorter and sharper in California,” said Jelena Lukovic, the lead author of the study. Lukovic is a climate scientist at the University of Belgrade in Serbia. Less rain is falling in the so-called shoulder seasons of autumn and spring, and more is falling during the core winter months. The worst fires occur in the fall, rather than in the hottest summer months, because that’s when vegetation is at its maximum dryness. In a state that just endured its worst wildfire season in history, this doesn’t come as good news. In California during 2020, about 4.3 million acres burned in nearly 10,000 fires, resulting in 33 fatalities, according to...

    Lewis Hamilton had a superb last race weekend in Imola and helped Mercedes to their seventh constructors’ title. Even though he did get some fortune along the way, Hamilton was largely untroubled after Bottas’ pit stop. However, there are small things in the bigger picture of things that do go amiss. Hamilton’s seat had become a bit of a talking point even before the race had begun. The suspicion, prior to the formation lap in the race, was that something ‘broke’ on Lewis Hamilton’s seat. However, Mercedes have moved to reveal the details of the adjustment that the Briton wanted on the component. Lewis Hamilton did not have a major problem with his seat The team’s track engineer director, Andrew Shovlin, spoke about how Hamilton had had a different seating configuration in practice and qualifying. He explained how it just needed a tweak in the race, so it did not prove to be a hassle later, heading into the race. Speaking in the post-race debrief, he elaborated on the issue revolving around the seat. “When he got in and pressed...

    Facebook estimates it has helped 2.5 million people register to vote this year across Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger, the company said. With more than a month until the 2020 election, that’s already higher than the two million people it helped register in both 2016 and 2018. The company has set a goal to help four million people register to vote this year, though, so it still has a ways to go. As part of its efforts to reach that goal, the company launched a “voting information center” that has resources about voting on Facebook and Instagram in August. And this weekend, the company started showing users information about how to register to vote at the top of Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger. Facebook says it will continue showing these notifications through September 25th. Image: Facebook The company ran a similar initiative in July. Facebook also kicked off a poll worker recruitment drive last weekend, and will be giving paid time off to US-based employees who want to staff the polls. Earlier this...

    (CBSDFW.COM/CNN) – In the past two weeks, the US recorded more than 915,000 new cases of coronavirus — that’s more than the cases reported across the country for the entire month of June. The staggering number signals the US is still far from containing the virus, which is running rampant across American communities, overwhelming hospitals and testing labs. The spread has promised a bleak outlook for the months ahead, according to both health officials and the President. And experts have highlighted the actual number of infections is likely much higher than the reported cases. That comes as some US leaders have now admitted parts of the country reopened too soon. And as they did, residents were too quick to jump back to old habits: crowding bars, packing beaches on hot summer days, holding barbeques and spending holidays with friends. The surge in new cases across the South and Southwest has now been linked back to Americans’ travel around Memorial Day and reopenings, White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said Wednesday. “This epidemic all appeared across the South and...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci lauded New York as a model state for bringing down the number of coronavirus cases. “We know that, when you do it properly, you bring down those cases. We have done it. We have done it in New York,” Fauci said during a PBS interview Friday. More than 22,000 people died of the coronavirus in just New York City, with more than 225,000 confirmed cases. Overall, the state has endured more than 32,000 deaths and 411,000 cases. “New York got hit worse than any place in the world. And they did it correctly by doing the things that you’re talking about,” Fauci said. State officials reported 776 new infections in New York as of Thursday, a significant drop from the 10,000 new daily cases in April. Beginning Monday, New York City will enter its fourth phase of reopening, allowing zoos and outdoor events to be opened to the public. Other locations, such as indoor restaurants and bars, will remain closed. “NYC has been cleared to enter Phase 4 of reopening, starting Monday, July 20....
    DUBLIN, Ohio — Collin Morikawa had one of best weeks of his life at Muirfield Village Golf Club, culminated by winning the Workday Charity Open in a three-hole playoff over Justin Thomas on Sunday. Four days later, the 23-year-old former Cal Bear looked like he was hanging on for dear life on Thursday in the opening round of the Memorial Tournament on the same golf course he’d scorched for 19-under-par the previous week. After shooting 65-66-72-66 last week, Morikawa shot a 4-over 76 Thursday to stand in 96th place. He was not alone. The struggle was real for some of the best players in the world. Dustin Johnson, who won the Travelers Championship two weeks ago, shot 80. Rickie Fowler was one worse than that. Bubba Watson shot 78. Webb Simpson, who won the RBC Heritage the last time he played, shot 76. Muirfield Village was not the same golf course that produced more birdies in the Workday Charity Open than the locker room staff at the club produces milkshakes during Memorial week. “It’s not even remotely close to the...
    Scientific studies have found that the more your income increases, the happier you are, up until US$75,000 (£60,000) a year.   But in a new analysis of 40,000 US adults, Professor Jean Twenge from San Diego University found an even deeper relationship between money and happiness. The study discovered that the difference in happiness by income level grew steadily larger from the 1970s to the 2010s.  That is to say, money can buy more happiness now than it could 50 years ago.  This is attributed, mainly, to the soaring cost of basic needs, such as housing and healthcare, which have outpaced inflation.  Professor Twenge wrote for The Conversation about how money and happiness are more strongly related than they were in the 1970s and how the coronavirus pandemic may further exasperate the US's class divide.  Scroll down for video  The difference in happiness by income level grew steadily larger from the 1970s to the 2010s Many factors determine happiness, but one has stirred considerable controversy over the years: money. While the old adage says that money can't buy happiness, several studies have...
    Underlying the recent unrest sweeping U.S. cities over police brutality is a fundamental inequity in wealth, land and power that has circumscribed black lives since the end of slavery in the U.S. The “40 acres and a mule” promised to formerly enslaved Africans never came to pass. There was no redistribution of land, no reparations for the wealth extracted from stolen land by stolen labor. June 19 is celebrated by black Americans as Juneteenth, marking the date in 1865 that former slaves in Texas were informed of their freedom, albeit two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Coming this year at a time of protest over the continued police killing of black people, it provides an opportunity to look back at how black Americans were deprived of land ownership and the economic power that it brings.
