    TUNISIA are one of many nations making their final preparations before the World Cup gets started in a few days time. The North African side get their campaign underway against Euro 2020 semi-finalists Denmark, who will also be vying for a place in the knockout rounds. 1Tunisia topped their qualifying group before beating Mali 1-0 on aggregate to book their place in QatarCredit: Getty Tunisia have never reached the Round of 16 in five appearances at the World Cup, but head coach Jalel Kadri will be hoping to make it six times lucky in Qatar. He has even said he will step down if his side do not get through the group stages, stating on Tunisian TV: "If we do not reach the knockout phase, I will leave."

    Iran's stunning 2-0 win over Wales isn't good news for the United States in Group B, but the Red, White, and Blue still has a chance at advancing to the World Cup knockout stage in Qatar, regardless of Friday's outcome against England. Following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Wales in the Group B opener on Monday, the US is now set for its second game of the World Cup against England at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor. If US loses to England – one of the tournament favorites coming off a 6-2 win over Iran – the team can still advance by beating the Iranians in the Group B finale on Tuesday. Interestingly, a draw against England won't change that equation because the US would still have only two points, necessitating a win over Iran on Tuesday in order to advance. Of course, a win over the Three Lions makes things a lot easier for the US, which could then advance with a win or a tie against Iran on Tuesday. And even if the US somehow loses to...
    Dakota Ditcheva looks to continue the road to a world title with second PFL win.  Dakota Ditcheva solidified herself as one of the top female MMA prospects after an impressive first-round finish in her PFL debut in August. Ditcheva took on Hassna Gaber (4-2) and finished the fight in under a minute with a knee to the liver. Ditcheva punched her ticket to the 2023 PFL Europe season with the win against Gaber. After training in England for most of her career, the flyweight prospect started training at American Top Team, where high-level training partners have helped her evolve. “It’s a different vibe over here, and I absolutely love it. I suppose this is the bit I was missing at home,” said Ditcheva when asked about ATT. “The level of jiu-jitsu over here and wrestling is a lot higher, and it’s kinda something that I’ve missed a lot in my game. So, to come over and be able to work that again is not just physically, but mentally feels like I’m in the right place.” The 24-year-old prospect has another...
    Brian Cox has spoken about the challenges of Hollywood, describing it as a 'difficult place to live' and 'the worst place in the world to raise female children'. The Succession star, 76, commented on the MeToo movement and how wealth can make you 'guilty' in the limelight in a new wide-ranging interview.

    HARRY KANE believes fans got to see the “real England” after their fightback against Germany. The out-of-form Three Lions went into their final Nations League game on a miserable run of form. 2Harry Kane says fans saw the 'real England' against GermanyCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun And even though they now head into the World Cup on a six-match winless run, the skipper is adamant that England showed they were on the rise again after the rollercoaster 3-3 draw with Germany. Goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Kai Havertz silenced Wembley at the start of the second half as the visitors took a two-goal lead. However, Luke Shaw and Mason Mount got England back on level terms before Kane scored a penalty to put his country ahead. But there was late agony in store after Nick Pope fumbled a shot in the 87th-minute which allowed Havertz to slot home an equaliser.

    Artwork created by artificial intelligence (AI) was awarded a first place blue ribbon and a $300 prize after winning the digital category at the Colorado State Fair Fine Arts Competition, but human creators are furious about the news - with one saying the world is 'watching the death of artistry unfold.' The AI artwork, dubbed Théâtre D'opéra Spatial, was submitted by Jason Allen, the president of a Pueblo-based gaming company Incarnate Games, who said he used Midjourney to make the stunning scenes that appear to combine medieval times with a futuristic world. Midjourney is an AI program that creates images from textual descriptions. Allen announced his win on Discord, an instant messaging social platform where he goes by the name Sincarnate, which then spread to Twitter where users shared their distaste that artwork generated by AI was chosen over those created by a human - one user stated 'that's pretty f*cking sh*tty.' The Colorado resident appears to not be bothered by the criticism, as Allen notes on Discord how Twitter users are against AI-generated art, but are also 'the first...
    Kneeling on the floor, Kate Wang pressed a bandage to stem the flow of blood from a nasty-looking wound, while others beside her treated bullet holes and brutal lacerations. Fortunately, the casualties were not real. The 40-year-old cosmetics marketing executive was among a group of 60 people learning emergency first aid last week in a peaceful Presbyterian church beside Taiwan’s parliament building. Yet Kate admitted she was preparing for war — and having learned how to tourniquet a bleeding limb, now wants to take shooting lessons in case she has to defend her country from invasion by the ‘barbarians’ ruling China. ‘We have to get prepared while we still have time,’ she said. ‘I fear that they might launch an attack, although the cost of a war would be horrendous destruction. It is better to be psychologically prepared than to be frightened.’ Kate Wang, 40, was among a group of 60 people learning emergency first aid last week in a peaceful Presbyterian church beside Taiwan's parliament building.

    Yes, I am Taiwanese American, but I regret to inform you that I will not be taking a side on whether House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was right to visit Taiwan last week. My entire extended family lives there, and I have many better-informed relatives to answer to. Relatives who, when I proudly display the Mandarin I have polished as a reporter in the San Gabriel Valley, pat me on the head like I’m a particularly intelligent talking dog. Relatives who take me to all the delicious places to eat, who might stop if they didn’t like my thoughts on cross-strait politics. So the strongest opinion I can offer about this week of debates over Taiwan is this: Please, don’t mess this up for me. Taiwan is a beautiful island that I have been visiting nearly every year since I was a child. Politics has always been a sensitive subject, and the divide is generational. All my cousins believe in Taiwanese identity and independence, and my aunts and uncles usually vote for the Kuomintang party, which has favored closer...
    A 'beloved' cancer survivor, mother-to-be and a 22-year-old on a birthright trip to Israel have been named among the American victims of a terrorist attack in Jerusalem on Saturday night.  In total, eight people were wounded in the shooting that happened near David's Tomb on Mount Zion, just outside the Old City walls. Five of the victims are American.  The gunman, named as East Jerusalem resident Amir Sidawi, opened fire at two locations around 6:30 pm Eastern time. First, he struck a bus that was waiting at a parking lot, shortly afterwards, he fired at a crowd close to the bus.  A Brooklyn man who was wounded in the shooting, Menachem Palace, 22, of Crown Heights, spoke openly to the media following the incident.  Palace said in the interview that he was in Israel with a group as part of a birthright trip to the Middle East. Birthright trips are free excursions to Israel offered to young Jewish adults across the world. They are paid for through charitable donations. During his interview with Israeli outlet COLlive, Palace said that he arrived...
    AYMAN AL-ZAWAHIRI was al-Qaeda’s chief after the Americans killed Osama bin Laden in 2011. The world is well rid of him. He was involved at the very beginning of al-Qaeda in Egypt during the 1980s. Like bin Laden, he was always a violent jihadist. 4Ayman al-Zawahiri was Al-Qaeda’s chief after the Americans killed Osama bin Laden in 2011Credit: AFP 4Taliban fighters take control of the Afghan presidential palace after President Ashraf Ghani fled the country in 2021Credit: AP He was behind the US embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 that killed 224 people He was behind the attack on the USS Cole in 2000 that killed 17 American sailors. And, of course, he was one of the key planners for the 9/11 attacks on America that killed almost 3,000 people and injured thousands more. He never had the charisma — or the money — of Osama bin Laden, but he was a hardline terrorist ideologue.

    Formula One's weary cast retreat for their summer lie-down after 13 races on four continents in 20 frenetic weeks.

It seems winning his first world title has liberated him. He is operating at the top of his game and without any do-or-die theatrics. This may partly be because Lewis Hamilton has not been up his gearbox.

    The United States has ranked first - and worst - in a global ranking for countries which provide financial secrecy to global bad guys such as dictators, oligarchs, organized criminals and wealthy tax dodgers. The US comfortably beat out perennial tax-dodge-enablers Switzerland into second place due to its very relaxed attitudes towards financial crime in states such as Nevada and Delaware. The Financial Secrecy Index 2022, released yesterday, ranks countries by combining how intensely each country's financial and legal system allows individuals to hide and launder money extracted from around the world with the volume of financial services the country provides to non-residents. The US' secrecy ranking is not so far from the norm at 67 out of 100 (with 100 being total secrecy), but as it provides some 25 per cent of the world's financial services, it is deemed to be the world's number one financial secrecy provider by the Tax Justice Network, the charity which produces the Financial Secrecy Index. Financial secrecy enables the corruption, crime and tax dodging that is commonly perceived to take place in other countries...

    A dramatic week in the battle for World Cup qualification lies ahead, with 29 of 32 spots for Qatar this winter set to be determined in the coming days.  The qualification process - which is split between six confederations - has been ongoing since the summer of 2019, but the majority of nations will imminently decide their fate with a number of key clashes ahead.  Some 11 European countries are still battling for three remaining spots, with 10 nations having already qualified, though the process has been extended following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, with the latter's clash against Scotland postponed until June.  The 2022 World Cup, which will be the first-ever winter tournament, will be held in Qatar It's not just those in Europe vying for an all-important plane ticket to Qatar, however, with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to go head-to-head once again as the African sides complete their qualification bids.    Canada meanwhile are on the brink of a historic qualification, while Australia face a fierce battle for an automatic spot.  Sportsmail takes you through the qualification processes...
    You might think a large country like the United States is the most visited in the world, but you'd be wrong — France takes that honor. About 90 million international visitors traveled there in 2019, and tourism makes up 8% of the country's gross domestic product, according to the French ministry of foreign affairs. As with other countries, tourist numbers plunged during the coronavirus pandemic and revenue from visitors to France was cut in half over the first seven months of 2020. Like the United States, France has mountains, wineries, famous sights and dramatic coastlines in abundance, with a wine-making heritage thought to be thousands of years old. (Spain ranks second for tourist numbers, with 83.5 million in 2019, followed by the United States, with 79.3 million, according to the World Tourism Organization). On top of that, France is easily accessible from neighboring European countries, is relatively small and has a certain "je ne sais quoi" — something that you can't quite put your finger on — those who know the country well told CNBC.Something for everyoneIn the Urville region,...
    There was a surprise defeat for Novak Djokovic in the Dubai quarter-finals this week, but in many ways he emerged a winner. The outlook may be brighter for the unvaccinated superstar than it first appears after a week in which he lost to the world No 121, and forfeited the top place in the rankings. So much so that the current odds of evens on him winning Wimbledon this summer do not look unwarranted, even though he was nowhere to be seen in Saturday night's final between Andrey Rublev and his conqueror, Jiri Vesely - with the former winning 6-3 6-4.

    THE first thing I remember about Jamal Edwards is his smile. It lit up the room. The second thing I remember is his humility.

    Nathan Chen skated his best short programme as the United States made a perfect start in the team event when the figure skating competitions kicked off at the Beijing Olympics on Friday. Chen's first place in the men's short programme was followed by Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue winning the rhythm dance with their season's best to put the US on a maximum 20 points, three ahead of the ROC (Russian Olympic Committee) skaters. Russians Victoria Sinitsina and Nikita Katsalapov, the world No 1s, delivered a below-par performance to end up second after the ROC's 18-year-old Mark Kondratiuk took third place in the men's short programme behind Japan's Shoma Uno. ROC are second with 17 points ahead of Italy in third on 14 and fourth-placed Japan who are a further point adrift. Chen, who at the Pyeongchang 2018 Games took a tumble in the team event and had a disastrous short programme in the singles, scored 111.71 points in front of a few hundred spectators at the Capital Indoor Stadium - 0.11 of a point short of his main...
    The international aid organization Open Doors ranked Afghanistan the worst place in the world for Christians in 2021 on its World Watch List published this week, the first time the country appears at the top of the list and the first time in 20 years that Open Doors does not issue North Korea that distinction. Open Doors CEO David Curry told Breitbart News in an interview this week that Christian persecution actually increased in North Korea this year even as it dropped a spot to number two on the list, but the threat that the return of the Taliban poses to Christians in Afghanistan is so great that it dwarfed the growing repression in North Korea. The Taliban, a Sunni jihadist terrorist organization, became the de facto government of Afghanistan on August 15, 2021, after President Joe Biden announced he would violate an agreement with the group and extend the 20-year Afghan War past its May deadline into September. Biden again amended that deadline out of September and into August. In the months between May and August, Taliban terrorists swept...
    Jason Isaacs has said he has not joined his Harry Potter co-stars in criticising its author JK Rowling over her views on trans issues because 'she has poured an enormous amount of her fortune into making the world a much better place'. The actor, best known for playing Lucius Malfoy in the Potter series, described Rowling's charity work as 'unequivocally good', having worked with her organisation Lumos himself and so he would not 'jump to stab her in the back'. The franchise's younger stars, including Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, have spoken out against Ms Rowling when she voiced concerns last year that biological women were being put at risk in favour of trans rights. But Isaacs said he would prefer to have a conversation with the children's author before sharing his views on the trans row that frequently dominates Twitter threads.  Speaking to the Telegraph, he said the author had opinions which 'differed' from his own and said he did not want 'to get drawn into the trans issues' which he described as an, 'extraordinary minefield.'  Jason Isaacs (pictured...
    Sen. Joe Manchin, a regular thorn in President Biden's legislative agenda, urged caution in shaking up Senate rules on Monday, suggesting he has not dropped his opposition to ditching the filibuster. Democrats have been trying to win over the West Virginia senator as part of a push to change the rules to pass voting rights legislation. But Manchin, whose opposition doomed Biden's massive Build Back Better spending plans, signaled he remained opposed. He told Congressional reporters that the filibuster was 'the tradition of the Senate here in 232 years now ... ' 'We need to be very cautious what we do.  'I'm hoping that we can come to an agreement to fix things. Every American has the right to vote and should be protected.' According to Chad Pergram of Fox News, he also said: 'That's what we've always had for 232 years. That's what makes us different than any place else in the world.' President Biden is expected to raise the issue of changing Senate rules on Tuesday, when he travels to Atlanta, Georgia, to deliver a speech on voting...
    Football is climbing the league table of popular US sports and has now overtaken ice hockey in fourth place and is homing in on baseball in third. The bumper £2billion deal the Premier League struck with NBC after a battle among American broadcasters this month reflects the growing popularity of the sport. The English top flight doubled its money when the channel renewed its contract and committed to show 380 games for six seasons on its cable and digital channels. The most-watched Premier League match stateside was Manchester United's 2-0 win over Manchester City in March 2020, when 1.76million saw the game live on American television And an analysis by Sportsmail shows that Association Football - known as soccer in the US - has now overhauled ice hockey and sits behind baseball, basketball and American football in the top five US sports. 'Today soccer is the fourth sport in the US in terms of popularity. Football is now just ahead of ice hockey. It follows a tremendous growth in popularity of football,' said Pierre Maes, a sports media strategist. 'This...
    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have renewed efforts to hold the National Institutes of Health (NIH) accountable for programs involving monkeys, revealed through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in February 2020. Another series of cruel experiments using beagles recently sparked outrage from PETA and lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Breitbart News reported that both Democrats and Republicans signed a letter demanding to know why the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases – Dr. Anthony Fauci’s workplace and one of the 27 institutes under the NIH – partially funded an experiment that locked beagles’ heads in cages while hordes of hungry sandflies ate them alive. According to the Hill, the beagles were infected with “disease-causing parasites to test an experimental drug on them.” Reports that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) partially funded an experiment of insects eating beagle puppies alive has sparked bipartisan outrage on Capitol Hill. https://t.co/rev29QLpfs — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) October 24, 2021 “NIH’s cruel and outdated experiments on dogs, monkeys and all other animals have no place in...

    FIFA have confirmed England’s rise into the top three of the world rankings - for the first time since 2012. SunSport revealed last week that Gareth Southgate’s side were set to leapfrog France and take a place on the rankings “podium”. 2Harry Kane and his England team-mates are now the world's third-best international team Despite conceding that injury-time equaliser to Poland in their third September World Cup qualifier, England are now a single point above the world champions, with Belgium leading the way and Brazil clear in second. Third spot equals England’s all-time best ranking since the system was introduced in the early 1990s, matching the spot held for two months in the immediate aftermath of Euro 2012. And it is likely that England will stay third for another month - However, a triumph for France in Belgium in their Nations League semi-final match could change this. Expected wins over Andorra and Hungary, which would be enough to clinch qualification for the 2022 World Cup if Albania and Poland draw on October 12, would earn England 7.5pts. Most read...
    Analysis – In China’s paradoxical view, the United States has abandoned the ground in Afghanistan Special Envoy to Washington How powerful should America be?

    (CNN)"Free Guy" is a cleverly programmed wedding of star (Ryan Reynolds) and subject matter, in a movie that's silly, handsome-looking and a great deal of fun, in roughly inverse proportion to how much one sweats the details. Traveling inside videogames doesn't always end well cinematically, but this "Guy" braves that familiar scenario and comes out ahead.Although there's a bit of "Ready Player One" baked into the colorful world that Reynolds' Guy inhabits, a more appropriate (if loftier) spiritual heir would be "The Truman Show," to the extent the central character discovers that the world he's living in is completely artificial, a construct for the amusement of others.Adding a degree of difficulty, Guy is a resident of Free City, a place with an inordinately high crime rate, where working at the bank, as he does, means happily dropping to the floor without even interrupting a conversation with his best pal Buddy (Lil Rel Howery) when someone barges in to rob the place.Guy, it turns out, is a non-playable character in this videogame world, living out the same routine over and over....

    Longest-running Billboard #1 singles from the 1960s Money Milestones Everyone Should Hit by Age 40 TOKYO — Danusia Francis had always dreamed of being an Olympian. The English-born gymnast had been a reserve for Great Britain in the 2012 Games in London, but never got the chance to compete. She then attended UCLA, where in 2016 she was a co-national champion on balance beam. The Olympics still hung out there though as the ultimate goal. When the opportunity presented itself to compete for Jamaica, where she has family ties, here at the 2020 Tokyo Games, she took it. At age 27, she qualified to be here, only the second Jamacian female to ever reach the Games. In the run-up to the Olympics, however, she injured her knee. Undeterred, she arrived and took part in podium training late last week, before revealing that her left knee was significantly injured, possibly a torn ACL. There was no way she could perform as she hoped. “Unfortunately, I do have a knee injury,” Francis wrote on Instagram. Rather than just quit, Francis showed...
    Three young siblings have received a message from the Queen after sending her a heartwarming handwritten note following the death of Prince Philip.  Henry, five, Leo, seven, and their nine-year-old step-sister Lola, from Wallsend, North Tyneside, were so moved by the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral that they penned a beautiful letter to the 95-year-old monarch. The note said how the Queen, currently based at Windsor Castle, made the 'world a lovely place to live' and reminded her that she is 'the best'.  Her Majesty replied with a card featuring a photo of the late Prince Philip, who died on April 9, aged 99, alongside the caption: 'I send my sincere thanks for your kind words on the death of my husband.' The three siblings were 'over the moon' when they received the reply, according to proud father Chris Furminger, 35.

"You are the greatest," he exclaimed. "You might be the first guest ever to be in a bathtub on ‘The Tonight Show’ as a guest." "That's the brilliant thing about Zoom.

    Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando have both announced they will end their temperature checks for visitors.  In a statement Disney said they will no longer carry out screenings for employees from May 8 and for guests from May 16. Universal adopted the same policy regarding temp checks and have reduced their social distancing from six foot to three effective Thursday.  Masks are still required at both parks, as is social distancing.  The decision came on the back of Governor Ron DeSantis' announcement Monday that he was signing an executive order to override any county or city rules on COVID to go in effect July 1. Both cases of COVID-19 and death resulting from it are falling across Florida, data shows. Nearly nine million people have received the vaccine in the Sunshine State.  Since Disney World reopened last summer, guests have been required to wear masks, observe social distancing, and submit to temperature screenings. Disney Land in California reopened last week after more than a year closed. Guests were told: 'Anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or above...
    U.S. President Joe Biden departs the room after speaking about jobs and the economy at the White House in Washington, April 7, 2021.Kevin Lamarque | Reuters It is hard to overstate the audaciousness of President Joe Biden's first 100 days in office, which will be marked April 30. Behind it lies a presidential ambition to recharge America while at the same time improving U.S. odds in its escalating contest with China. Biden's boldness can be measured most graphically by the numbers: the $4 trillion and counting that he hopes to generate to finance an American pandemic rebound, a surge in U.S. jobs and growth, and a mountain of national infrastructure investments (defining "infrastructure" liberally). Never in my memory has any U.S. president so closely associated domestic investments with U.S. global standing—and now he is acting on that conviction. Biden made sure no one missed the connection to China when he rolled out his infrastructure spending proposal this week, which he called "the single largest investment in American jobs since World War II." Asked Biden, "Do you think China is waiting...
    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The kid yawned. Nothing really remarkable about that except when and where it happened: Will Zalatoris was in contention and standing in the middle of the 13th fairway at Augusta National, one of the last places on the planet where sleepy will do. Maybe it was his youth. Or else because there’s already such a “pinch-me” quality to the story of how Zalatoris got himself into contention at the Masters that worrying about what could go wrong was the last thing on the 24-year-old’s mind. Either way, he stepped into the approach shot awake and alert, launched the ball down the fairway and followed behind like he didn’t have a care in the world. Turns out Zalatoris didn’t. “I thought I might have been a little bit more nervous than I was, to be honest,” he said afterward. “I think it’s just something that I’ve wanted to be here my entire career, and like I said, I’m not going to shy away from it. “I’ve wanted to do this. I’ve wanted to put on...
    More people are flocking to one source for updates on COVID-19. Readership of articles in medical journals soared 557% between March to July 2019 and March to July 2020, even though the total number of articles published per month remained constant, according to research published in JAMA Network Open, a monthly open-access medical journal published by the American Medical Association. Amid allegations of social-media bias and political bias among mainstream publications, the researchers examined full and PDF views of articles published by three widely read, English-language, general medical journals — JAMA, The New England Journal of Medicine, and BMJ (British Medical Journal). “The COVID-19 pandemic has increased overall article views for major medical journals in 2020, with unprecedented views per article for COVID-19–related publications,” the researchers concluded. In fact, they said their analysis suggested that individual non–COVID-19 original research articles are receiving similar attention as before the pandemic. “ ‘The COVID-19 pandemic has increased overall article views for major medical journals in 2020, with unprecedented views per article for COVID-19–related publications.’ ” It suggests that people are...
    Floyd mayweather He is one of the best boxers of all time and he retired undefeated and surrounded by champion belts. Reasons more than enough to grant him the license to make his own Top 5 fighters of all time … and not place Muhammad Ali as number one. For ‘Money’ Mayweather, the best ever is… right, himself. “He beat more world champions than any other fighter in less time and fewer fights than anyone. He threw punches at a higher percentage and received less punishment. He has been a world champion for 18 years in five different weight divisions. “He says of himself speaking in the third person. He also has no doubts about second to fourth spots. In the two would be Roberto Duran: “He went from lightweight to world champion at 160 pounds. I love that guy. A legend”. In third place I would place Pernell whitaker: “He beat Chávez [la pelea oficialmente acabó en empate]. And he beat my uncle Roger twice. ” In four I would put Julio Cesar Chavez: “He was 79-0 in...
