    Many of us long to see our loved ones, and millions won't have had so much as a hug from a friend or family member in months — so the first thing you may want when you reunite is to embrace. Yet, in a recent poll 59 per cent of people questioned said they would no longer greet others with a kiss, a hug, or even a handshake in future, for fear of spreading germs. While such strategies may help cut the risk of catching coronavirus, science tells us a lack of physical contact may have knock-on implications for our health — and may even make us more likely to pick up infections. A survey from early last year shows how much our attitude to human contact has changed since the pandemic. Conducted between January 21 and March 30 (covering the nine weeks before, and a week into the first...

    SITTING round a restaurant table in Berlin, the British man chatting easily to two women look like any other trio of pals. But Bishop Black, 36, Carmen Canela, 26 and Lina Bembe, 38, have a unique sexual relationship which they describe as a “casual throuple”. 5Bishop looking like the cat that got the cream with Carmen (left) and LinaCredit: Jam Press The three-way romance started out as a friendship but the sexual attraction was so strong that the trio hooked up and have been sharing a bed ever since.

    The March for Life last year boasted more than 100,000 attendees, a record number for the largest annual anti-abortion demonstration. Then-President Donald Trump spoke before a massive crowd on the National Mall and declared the event a “very special moment.” The protest was one of the last massive gatherings to occur in Washington, D.C., before the coronavirus hit the United States, and many anti-abortion advocates argued at the time that it was a turning point for a movement that for more than 50 years has sought to overturn the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. But the pandemic, coupled with a dramatic loss both at the presidential level and in the Senate, set up new obstacles to the anti-abortion movement’s efforts to restrict abortion access nationwide. And, after the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill, leaders at the March for Life, which organizes the protest, announced that the event...

    VIDEO1:2801:28'We're the most bullish on the market that we've been in about a year': ShueTrading Nation The stock market's record run this year hasn't discounted one top strategist's bull case for 2021. Meghan Shue, head of investment strategy at Wilmington Trust, told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Friday that her firm is "very constructive" on stocks over a 9-12 month time horizon. "We're the most bullish on the market that we've been in about a year," said Shue, whose firm manages around $124 billion in assets. Having just added to Wilmington Trust's overweight position in equities, Shue sees three main factors driving the market higher in the intermediate term: the Covid-19 vaccines, which she called "a game-changer for a faster return to normal in 2021"; the political landscape as it relates to fiscal stimulus and the potential for a divided government; and monetary policy, "which, in the short term, isn't...
    Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy, guest co-hosting Fox & Friends on Sunday, said she “feels for” President Donald Trump after his new interview with Brian Kilmeade. In the interview, the president once again repeated false claims of victory with baseless claims that the election was stolen from him — claims that even Kilmeade noted “your guys have been unable to prove.” The president complained about judges rejecting their cases, claiming they don’t have “courage.” After part of the interview aired, Campos-Duffy said the following: “I just feel for the president. I see the pain and the frustration. You do everything you’re supposed to do. You run the country well, you campaign your heart out while the other guy’s in a basement, and then in the end, fraud and shenanigans at the local level — you’re robbed. And we’ve all been robbed, because when the elections don’t go well, when there’s...
    The MAGA meltdown over the collapse of efforts to overturn Joe Biden’s 2020 election win extended to Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy on Sunday, when she echoed President Donald Trump’s baseless claims that the election was “rigged” and illegitimate, complaining, “we’ve all been robbed.” Following the Supreme Court rejection of a Trump-backed Texas lawsuit seeking to overthrow the election by tossing millions of ballots from four states that voted for Biden, the president spoke with Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade in an interview that aired Sunday morning. During the conversation, the president continued to refuse to accept the reality of his decisive election loss while grumbling that judges and courts don’t have the “courage” to flip the results in his favor. Trump once again peddled unfounded allegations that “they cheated” and that his legal team “caught them,” prompting Kilmeade to note that “your guys have been...
    "Love, Lights, Hanukkah!" Hallmark Channel Hallmark's new Hanukkah movie "Love, Lights, Hanukkah!" premieres on December 12 at 8 p.m. EST. The film stars Mia Kirshner as Christina, a restaurant owner who discovers she's Jewish through a DNA ancestry test and celebrates Hanukkah with her newfound family. It has all the trimmings of a cheesy Hallmark holiday movie, but centers Hanukkah traditions and their symbolism, as well as the Jewish characters who celebrate them. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Last year, for the first time, Hallmark included Jewish characters and Hanukkah storylines in two movies: "Holiday Date" and "Double Holiday." While both were well-intentioned attempts at inclusion, they ultimately felt more like Christmas movies with poorly written Jewish characters who happened to mention Hanukkah a few times. This year's effort entitled "Love, Lights, Hanukkah!" is different. Is it cheesy? Sure. It's a Hallmark holiday movie, after all....

    MARSEILLE, France (Reuters) - Restaurant owner Jean Avarello is struggling to understand why in the next few weeks the shops and theatres near him in the French city of Marseille will be allowed to reopen after a COVID-19 lockdown, but he has to stay shut. "That's not okay," Avarello said on Thursday as he took part in a protest in Marseille involving several thousand people from the restaurant, bar and nightclub sector against the government order to keep them shut. "We feel we've been forgotten." Demonstrators gathered at the city's old port, then marched to the office of the prefect -- the most senior representative of central government in the region -- where they were granted a meeting to convey their views. Outside, protesters set off flares and smoke bombs, and one person, dressed in a chef's tunic and toque, carried a mock-up of a gravestone with the inscription: "Here...

    Tom Engelhardt November 13, 2020 11:30AM (UTC) This piece originally appeared on TomDispatch. It was summer almost half a century ago when I got into that Volkswagen van and began my trip across country with Peter, a photographer friend. I was officially doing so as a reporter for a small San Francisco news service, having been sent out to tap the mood of the nation in a politically fraught moment. The Vietnam War, with all its domestic protests and disturbances, was just ending. North Vietnamese troops would soon enough enter Saigon, the South Vietnamese capital; the president of the United States, Richard Nixon, was then trapped in an escalating scandal called "Watergate." And here was the odd thing. I felt trapped, too. In some way, I felt lost. As I put it then (and this should have a familiar ring to it, even if, in 1973, I was only...
    Republicans focus on campaigns; Democrats focus on elections. While that difference may seem minor, even semantic, it’s one of the great differences in American politics — and largely explains what we are now living through. If you prioritize campaigns, you want a candidate who draws great crowds, gets people excited, and has an attractive policy platform. But if you prioritize elections, you want to build a machine that wins the elections — the candidate is secondary at best. And that’s what Democrats have been doing methodically. While former Vice President Joe Biden was hiding in his basement, Democrats were building a machine to win no matter what, able to adapt to this year’s massive surge in voting by mail.

    A DAD has sparked a heated debate among cleaning fans, after he claimed they had been using their dishwasher tablets “all wrong.” In the TikTok video, which has been viewed more than 3.7 million times, dad-of-three Scott Jeffreys puts his dishwasher tablet in the smaller section of the tablet dispenser rather than the recommended larger section. 3Scott Jeffreys claimed that we have been using our dishwasher tablets wrongCredit: scottjeffreys0/TikTok “Who knew?

    WEST ALLIS, Wisc. — The Milwaukee State Fair Park used to be a cheerful, happy place, near the so-called Cream City, attracting thousands of families every year for events and concerts. An area once fulfilled by joy — where kids ate cotton candy near their smiling parents — is now welcoming an emergency field hospital where ambulances come and leave. Coronavirus cases have surged in Wisconsin with no sign of improvements. The hospital, located in the small town of West Allis, is emblematic of the fight by Wisconsinites against COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. They were, despite warnings about the perils of congregating and not wearing masks, caught off guard. The pandemic changed everything in this key battleground state. With just one day to go before the U.S. presidential election, President Donald Trump trails former vice president and Democratic presidential rival Joe Biden in...

    Joe Biden (D) experienced another brain freeze moment during the climax of his Democratic National Convention (DNC) address Thursday evening, telling the audience that there has “never been anything we’ve been able to accomplish when we’ve done it together.” While accepting the party’s nomination as its presidential candidate, Biden said the United States is facing four crises, which he is best equipped to fix after decades served in the Senate and White House. Those challenges are, in his words: “the worst pandemic in over 100 years. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The most compelling call for racial justice since the ’60s, and the undeniable realities and just accelerating threats of climate change.” The former vice president emphatically promised victory and unity in the closing minutes of his speech. “I believe there’s only one way forward, as United America — a United America,” he said. “United in our...

The "Chicago" star, 50, recently appeared on the "Today" show, opening up about her life at home since the novel virus' spread has driven many around the world indoors. "It was lovely... First of all, I’m a bit of a homebody anyway. I love my four walls," Zeta-Jones said. "There’s things I can do for hours in my house and I’m very complacent, very happy." CATHERINE ZETA-JONES' DAUGHTER LOOKS IDENTICAL TO THE ACTRESS IN NEW PHOTO: 'SPITTING IMAGE' But what makes her even happier is having the two kids she shares with husband Michael Douglas -- Dylan, 19, and Carys, 17 -- back in the house.

    (CNN)Uncharted territory. Terra incognita. That notion must have terrified the explorers of old who ventured into parts of the world where the absence of reliable nautical charts meant their ships could be wrecked at any moment on shallow rocks. Today every morning in America seems like a trip on rough seas into unmapped territory, where a raging pandemic is spreading disease, and political leaders more often than not seem unable to guide citizens to safety. In 39 states, the number of new coronavirus cases this week exceeded the week before, straining hospitals and health care workers in many places.The President of the United States took a hands-off approach to the biggest crisis the nation has faced in decades and let his administration throw potshots at Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease expert who remains a trusted authority. A smiling Donald Trump posed behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office,...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Friday was supposed to be the day when restaurants in Philadelphia and New Jersey were allowed to offer indoor dining, but because of the coronavirus, those plans were put on hold. But some restaurant owners are still putting systems in place to ensure customers feel safe when they can once again have them inside. “We are ready. We’ve been ready,” Bill Proud, owner of Jerry’s Bar, said. Restaurants are chomping at the bit to open up their dining rooms. At Jerry’s Bar in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties neighborhood, they’ve spaced out tables and installed glass partitions. “Listen, we want our customers to be comfortable, we want the staff to be comfortable,” Proud said.

    LOS ANGELES -- When the coronavirus swept the world earlier this year, becoming a pandemic and major health crisis, it caught many off guard. Similarly, the HIV/AIDS pandemic that seemingly appeared out of nowhere in the early 1980s also caught the world by surprise, none more so than the LGBTQ community who seemed to be hit hardest first.However, unlike HIV and AIDS, which was largely ignored for years in the United States by the government and population at large, COVID-19 got people's attention immediately."Within sixty days there was a lockdown, then a quarantine and the country stopped," Dr. Chris Donaghue said about COVID-19.When AIDS was discovered, the opposite reaction happened. The disease was dismissed - often being referred to as the "gay plague"."It wasn't spoken about, information wasn't shared. Gay men died alone and isolated due to fear," Donaghue added.However, despite the difference in virus, there are some similarities."Coronavirus also...
    The $999 Skydio 2 self-flying drone is one of the most incredible gadgets I’ve ever touched, but it’s got its fair share of limitations. Two of them: It’s been practically impossible to buy, and we found the nearly crash-proof drone could crash during some landings. But at least those two specific issues may be going away soon. Today, Skydio says it’s back on sale, greatly increasing its production capacity, and the company just issued a huge software update that could make landing your drone way the heck easier. You can check Skydio’s blog post and changelog for the main details, but the grabbiest feature is this: the carrying case that comes with your drone now doubles as an autonomous landing pad. Skydio CEO Adam Bry tells me that landing’s been a tricky problem for an autonomous drone because most people expect...
    Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, said Tuesday during an interview with CBS’ Gayle King that the administration has violated policy by refusing to allow the union leaders to view body camera footage involved with the George Floyd arrest. Floyd, who is black, died on May 25, following an arrest where an officer held his knee on the neck of the 46-year-old for over eight minutes. The social media footage, surfaced online and sparked nationwide protests and riots. According to Mr. Kroll, his team has only been allowed to see what the public has seen, barring him from being able to come forward with an “informed” decision on the arrest, particularly when it comes to the supporting officers involved. “Lets talk about the incident,” King said, “I wanna know from each of you, what you thought when you saw the video of George Floyd and Officer...
    By now it’s clear our president isn’t looking for guidance from statesmen, real or fictional. He’s looking instead to the movie tough guys of the early 1970s, born of the chaos and social rebellion of the late 1960s. These guys (always men, almost always white) came equipped with a gun, a badge and a supernaturally accurate sense of righteous wrath.Dirty Harry has a pretender: Dirty Don.“I am your president of law and order,” Donald J. Trump said during a Monday phone conference with U.S. governors, invoking the successful 1968 campaign slogan of Richard M. Nixon. And the rights of the “silent… Read More
    The devastating ramifications of the global coronavirus pandemic and tragic death of George Floyd have inspired some social media users to declare that 2020 is “cancelled,” though a now-viral poem lighting up Instagram urges people to strive for a brighter future. “What if 2020 isn’t cancelled? What if 2020 is the year we’ve been waiting for?” the poem by writer Leslie Dwight begins. “A year so uncomfortable, so painful, so scary, so raw — that it finally forces us to grow.” “A year that screams so loud, finally awakening us from our ignorant slumber. A year we finally accept the need for change,” it continued. “Declare change. Work for change. Become the change. A year we finally band together, instead of pushing each other further apart.” NORTH CAROLINA COUPLE GETS ENGAGED AT BLACK LIVES MATTER PROTEST: 'BLACK LOVE MATTERS'   “2020 isn’t cancelled, but rather the most important year of...
