    Chrissy Teigen respectfully asked President Biden to unfollow her on Twitter, a little over a month after she became one of only 13 people he follows on the app. "I have tweeted a handful of times since my treasured @POTUS following. In order for me to flourish as me, I must ask you to please lord unfollow me. I love you!!! It’s not you it’s me!!!!" Teigen tweeted on Tuesday. The former swimsuit model did not provide any specific reason for the request, leaving many of her fans to weigh in online. Some assumed she didn't want Biden to come across her flippant comments, while others argued it's an honor she got a follow in the first place. "Same when Jenna Marbles followed me. I would tweet every stupid idiot thought I had and then be like 'oh god, I'm so sorry for clogging your timeline with my stupidity,'" one person responded. CHRISSY TEIGEN RIPPED...
    Here’s the scenario: You are sitting at your desk, having lunch, and checking out all the new articles and recipes posted that day on One Green Planet —your favorite website ever! You see a new recipe for an egg-free frittata and you’re all excited. That would be perfect for your next get-together with friends or the Mother’s Day brunch you’ve been planning. You read through the ingredients of the recipe. Tofu – check. Vegan butter – no problem. Vegan cheese – got it. Black salt – huh? What is this black salt you keep seeing in recipes? How is it different than regular white salt? You look it up online and there are different types of black salt and you don’t know which one you need for the recipe. You wonder if you should spend extra money on it or whether it makes a difference at all. Well, all your...

    VIDEO1:0301:03Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson dies from cancer at age 62Closing Bell Following the news of his death after a nearly two year battle with pancreatic cancer, several current and former Marriott International employees shared how CEO Arne Sorenson lead with his heart. "I consider Arne's legacy to Marriott and the hospitality industry as immeasurable. Perhaps one of Arne's greatest legacies is his principled and gracious leadership, an 'esprit de corps,' that I feel has been ingrained by Marriott's global associates today and certainly for generations to come, said Gregory Miller, a former longtime Marriott employee and now a lodging analyst at Truist.  Miller added that he was "gutted" when he heard the news. Sorenson, who turned Marriott into the world's largest hotel chain after acquiring Starwood Hotels & Resorts in a $13 billion deal in 2016, died at the age of 62, the company announced Tuesday.

    Nature is an uncontrollable enigma. Although we might try our hardest to wish away bad weather, or keep invasive plants from growing in our gardens, the natural world holds a trump card over all of us … and we just have to accept it. One of the most unpredictable elements of the natural world comes in the form of wildlife. You know what we mean, the squirrel who insists on dropping all his nutshells on your car window, the woodpecker who has made the windowsill outside your bedroom his new favorite pecking place. But what can you do? We can build fences all we want, but that’s not going to keep those woodland creatures away. All we can do is sit back and enjoy the creatures that share our world with us. They do have their redeeming moments after all. Check out these wild creatures who have no qualms...
    A prestigious expert explains how the end of the pandemic will be: perhaps it is not what you expected
    A quarter of all known stars in the universe are thought to host a 'perfect planet' — one the same size and temperature as Earth. There are approximately a 'zetta' of them ... that's a trillion billions — a one with 21 zeroes after it. So it is presumptuous for us to assume we are the only intelligent beings in this vast cosmos. In fact, to imagine we humans are alone in space is not merely arrogant, it is scientific nonsense. On October 19, 2017, a telescope in Maui, Hawaii's second-largest island, glimpsed the first known interstellar visitor. Without question, this object came from a distant solar system. Was this a natural phenomenon, or one engineered by an intelligent life-form? The simplest explanation is the latter: that it was created by an intelligent civilisation not of this Earth. Earth cannot possibly be the only planet that supports life. Even in...

The stamps are nowhere to be found. My wife and I engage in this dance, a common couple's refrain, no less than three times per week.

    With the iPhone 12 just hitting the market, and the first iPhone 13 rumors popping up, we didn’t expect it to start popping up. information about iPhone 14. We don’t really know if it was called the iPhone 14, but we already started to know things about the iPhone that Apple will introduce in 2022. IPhone concept Qualcomm today unveiled its new Snapdragon X65 modem, the first 5G modem capable of delivering 10 gigabit speeds. The Snapdragon X60 is expected to be included in the iPhone 13, and this new X65 will arrive alongside the iPhones of 2022.

It will also include greater energy efficiency, greater coverage for the mmWave and sub-6 GHz bands, and support for all mmWave frequencies...
    Spend a few moments with a beagle, and it quickly becomes apparent why this breed is so popular. Behind those brown eyes is an amiable being, one as tolerant as she is eager-to-please – someone who wants to be your companion when you’ve had a bad day. You’d be hard-pressed to find that same brand of loyalty from most humans. The beagle is so popular, in fact, the American Kennel Club has named the breed one of the top five most popular in both 2012 and 2013. This fame comes with a price. The Humane Society of the United States has noted a correlation between so-called breed popularity and puppy mills – breeds at the top of the list are those who are most likely to be found in puppy mills. Puppy Mills Are Just One of the Beagle’s Woes… The characteristics that cause people to fall for beagles...
    In the last year they have become one of the gadgets most requested home. And, the truth is, it is not surprising, since they have made any home, with a simple voice command, become a smart home. We are talking about smart speakers, and the increase that, according to Canalys, its world market had in the last quarter of 2019 (52%). A generalized growth that, however, Amazon led, with 15.6 million units sold of its well-known Alexa. And it is that the different Echo that the shopping giant on-line currently markets have been able to adapt to the different needs and demands of users. However, there are still many who, while it is true that they dream of the benefits of having a smart speaker at home, are not very clear which of the available Echo models is the best for them (third generation, Studio or Show? ?). Aware of...
    Buying food that is locally grown from your farmer’s market or local grocer is a great way to minimize your environmental impact, but growing your own food takes it to the next level. The easiest way to imagine how growing your own food reduces your carbon footprint and benefits the planet is to think of food production and distribution in terms of an empty jar. The fuller the jar is, the greater the environmental impact, and the more components involved in producing your food and bringing your food to your plate. Fossil Fuels and Fresh Produce When you take into account the typical energy cost of transporting food to your local grocer, it is estimated that an average distance of 1,500 miles is traveled before the food is consumed. This large-scale, long-distance transportation of food relies heavily on the energy from burning fossil fuels. In fact, it is estimated that we currently put nearly 10 kilo...
    Foil can go in an air fryer, but it isn't necessary. shauntoray grisby/Shutterstock Aluminum foil can be used in an air fryer, but it should only go in the basket. Acidic foods react with aluminum, so avoid using it with ingredients like tomatoes and citrus. Parchment paper or a bare basket are better options because they won't interfere with the cooking process. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. For many home cooks, the air fryer has joined the Instant Pot and KitchenAid stand mixer as a countertop essential. Whether you're cooking under a time crunch, have run out of oven space, or want a healthier spin on a deep-fried recipe, air fryers can come in handy. As with other beloved kitchen tools, the first thing you should figure out is what you can — and subsequently, cannot — do. Before you get cooking, it's important to learn...
    President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial strategy will apparently attempt to defend his repeated baseless claims of a stolen election — something he repeated in his first video during the Capitol riots — and the filing Tuesday tries to say “insufficient evidence exists upon which a reasonable jurist could conclude that the 45th President’s statements were accurate or not.” And with the trial in the “Unites States Senate” just days away, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked about whether the Trump team can get away with the George Costanza defense. Jim Acosta said Tuesday that Trump clearly won the battle on whether to include his false election claims in his impeachment defense, but as Tapper noted minutes later, there is the question of whether Trump’s state of mind in making those false claims would potentially help that defense. “Obviously, this big lie about the election having been stolen is utter crap and has...
    If you don’t know by now, double masking is the newest iteration of face covering suggestion and is, as the name suggests, the idea of wearing more than one face mask. The trend more or less started, when Dr. Anthony Fauci went on NBC’s TODAY and said “it makes common sense” that wearing more than one mask would be more effective. In a recent commentary, Linsey Marr, an expert in virus transmission at Virginia Tech echoed Fauci, writing “if you combine multiple layers, you start achieving pretty high efficiencies” of blocking viruses. The idea stems from getting closer to the effectiveness of an N95 mask, without taking away supply of the coveted mask from healthcare workers who need it most. But what kind of masks are best for double masking? Marr said people can get protection by wearing a cloth mask tightly on top of a surgical mask. These surgical...

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Jeremy Howard knows a thing or two about masks. He joined us often in the early days of the pandemic and did everything from tutorials on how to make your own mask to explaining in visual detail why they're so important.He's a research scientist at USF and founded Masks4All trying to spread awareness about the effectiveness of masks.OK, now that we've established he knows his face coverings, we have a whole new slate of questions to pepper him with:Are cloth masks still effective?It depends. Cloth masks can be much more effective if you're able to add a filter to the inner layer of the mask. Howard says filter material is pretty readily available online these days and it has similar qualities to N95 masks. Also, cloth masks with nose wires can help close the gap around your nose. "Without those two things, a cloth mask doesn't...
    Getty Images The Amazon Echo has some new home security features that are now going live. Among other things, your Amazon Echo can make it sound like a dog is barking inside your house if your security cameras sense movement when you're not home. The feature is part of Alexa Guard Plus, a subscription service that costs $4.99 per month or $49 per year after a 30-day free trial.

    A study from Northwestern University explains that fictional villains are easy to identify with for this simple reason. It’s easy to identify with a villain in fiction, call him Darth Vader or Thanos. However, if we see an immorally similar real person, we may feel repulsed. Why is this happening? Northwestern University conducted a study to analyze this phenomenon, which it published in the journal Psychological Science. According to experts, one of the reasons for this is that fiction acts as a cognitive safety net. With it, we can identify with villains without tarnishing our own image. « Fictional stories and worlds can offer a ‘safe haven’ from which to compare ourselves to a villain, » says Rebecca Krause, author of the investigation. « When people feel protected by the veil of fiction, they can show a greater interest in learning about the dark and sinister characters who look like them. » But...

    The planet’s forests are under threat. Some 36 football fields of forests are hacked, burned, and destroyed every minute. With each forest clearing, we lose about 135 species of animals, plants, and insects a day. Forests provide us with many benefits, including goods such as timber and paper. They help mitigate climate change by consuming the carbon dioxide we put into the air, while breathing out oxygen. Tropical rainforests, like those in the Amazon, play a vital role in the water cycle by providing rain to the region. It is also estimated that rainforests contain more than half of anti-cancer plants identified so far. Eighty percent of land-dwelling species establish homes in forests and the biodiversity ensures global food security and helps alleviate poverty during times of crisis. So, why are we destroying what’s left of the planet’s forest? There is no single factor that is responsible for deforestation....

    Thursday on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson warned elements on the American left were using last week’s incident at the U.S. Capitol to justify threats and fear to gain control over the country. According to Carlson, that included tying race to the incident. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: What happened at the Capitol last Wednesday was wrong. We’ve said that very clearly at the time. We’ve said it very clearly everyday sense since and we will continue to say it. We are opposed to political violence. We hate mobs. No matter who they claim to represent. Period. But that’s not all we’re against. We’re also against lying. Political propaganda is its own form of violence it. Destroys people’s minds. In the end, it enslaves them. You can judge for yourself what happened last Wednesday in Washington. Rarely has an event been filmed from more angles than that was. You...
    Prostock-Studio/Getty Images Chapped lips are inflamed lips, so stopping chapstick usage just reveals the underlying irritation.  Some people are more prone to chapped lips due to where they live or what they eat and drink.  A dermatologist told Insider a simple product like Vaseline is better than chapsticks with more ingredients, which can irritate the lips, being both the problem and solution.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    For those lucky enough to have already planted fruit trees, it’s good form to spend a little time each winter pruning them. Think of it a bit like an annual haircut: While at times we might let our hair grow wild (2020 being a prime example), we eventually need to tame the beast, else it might drive us crazy. In the wild, trees regularly self-prune. That’s why a walk in the woods (or even the backyard after a windstorm) will often consist of stepping over fallen branches and such. In essence, when we prune our fruit trees, we are both making this natural process more efficient and styling the trees, a la hair, so that they are easier to manage. If all of that sounds super groovy, and it is, then it’s time to delve into exactly why we prune fruit trees at certain times, what good it does...

    The new Brexit deal has fallen short on finanical services — a major part of the UK economy — the Prime Minister has admitted, but nevertheless the UK has an opportunity now to go its own way and make the most of freedom post-Brexit, Boris Johnson claimed in an interview. The UK Prime Minister expressed his thoughts on the new Brexit deal — apparently part of a post-agreement media blitz from Boris Johnson — in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph a, whose weekday stablemate Johnson worked for over amny years as a European Union correspondent and a columnist. While Johnson generally talked up the deal in the interview, one line which was widely reported by other outlets Sunday was his comments on the deal’s section on services. The UK transitioned from a predominantly manafacturing-based economy to a services-based one in the late 20th century, and services account for roughly 80%...
    Fox News anchor Sandra Smith on Wednesday confronted Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) on whether or not she supports President Donald Trump’s demand for $2,000 stimulus checks, asking if the Trump-boosting senator was trying to ignore the question and not “commit to it.” Prior to the president potentially blowing up the COVID-19 relief bill at the last minute by threatening to veto because the proposed $600 checks were “ridiculously low,” Blackburn was one of six Republican senators to vote no on the legislation. The Tennessee lawmaker complained at the time that the long-awaited relief package, combined with the omnibus spending bill, was “bloated” and “used a pandemic to push a socialistic agenda.” Appearing on America’s Newsroom on Wednesday, Blackburn doubled down on her opposition to the bill, calling it a “redistribution of wealth” while noting that she has “fought against these direct cash payments” to individuals because it is a “pathway...
    Supporters listen as Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jon Ossoff speaks at a news conference in Grant Park after the election in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. November 6, 2020.Dustin Chambers | Reuters Wall Street and Washington are operating, these days, on the assumption that Republicans will retain control of the Senate after at least one Republican wins a seat in the Georgia Senate runoffs come Jan. 5. It seems reasonable to expect that Democrats won't win both runoffs as they are being outspent by their GOP opponents and many people prefer split government in this highly polarized era, even in a state in the process of turning blue. However, Georgia surprised the nation and went for Joe Biden in the presidential election. Stacey Abrams, the influential Democratic politician who delivered Georgia to Joe, is working hard to get both Democratic Senatorial candidates to the Upper House. Georgia could then surprise the markets,...

    You’ve probably heard that age-old saying that “beauty is pain.” Unfortunately, this statement is proving to be true when we think about where plastics are showing up in personal care items. Whether it’s plastic microbeads added as scrubbing elements to face washes and toothpastes, or the myriad of plastic bottles and containers that house much of our beauty products, plastic is everywhere. And those plastics are proving more and more to be quite painful not only to the environment but also to us. Now, plastic has proven to be quite useful when it comes to packaging cosmetics, moisturizers, hair care products and the wide assortment of other items we use on a daily basis to maintain our physical appearance. They are, ideally, sturdy and dependable for keeping a variety of serums and solutions at your fingertips, ready to use. They are also easy to throw in a purse or overnight bag...

NASA pledged in September to buy moon rocks from companies that can get robotic rovers to the lunar surface and scoop up samples of the dusty terrain, and the space agency asked for bids from companies all over the world. The winners were unveiled Thursday: California-based Masten, Lunar Outpost of Colorado, and two separate companies that are both called iSpace — one from Japan and the other from Luxembourg. The program, which NASA hopes will be completed by 2024, the same year the agency hopes to return astronauts to the moon, is among the most unique in US history. The goal is not to glean new information about lunar soil composition or study how various lunar resources can be used. The goal, rather, is...

You May Not Even Need to Ask for It Pay raises can be hard to come by, especially now. But if you received a big tax refund this year, getting more take-home pay next year could be a matter of filling out a form. © Getty Images Adjusting your W-4 form can increase your monthly take-home pay. That form is the W-4, and it has a big influence on how much tax comes out of your paycheck.

Changing what’s on your W-4 form can make it possible to skip the monthslong wait...
    Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie has some tough decisions to make this offseason. Still being alive for the NFC East crown does not hide the fact the Philadelphia Eagles are an absolute mess in 2020. Fans around the country got to see that Monday night and fans in Philly may be wondering what changes will come this offseason. Some are calling for Doug Pederson to be fired. Others want Carson Wentz benched immediately, as his contract makes it impossible to simply cut him loose. FanSided’s NFL Insider Matt Lombardo has revealed it is likely GM Howie Roseman who gets the axe this offseason.Eagles need a change up topLombardo spoke to a former GM who believes Roseman is the one person in most danger of losing their job. “If anyone goes, it’s most likely Howie Roseman,” a former general manager tells FanSided. “The issue here is Jeffrey Lurie knows that if he...
    Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.A good life tip is if you ever have some errand to run in New York City and you don’t want to deal with a long line, do it when it’s raining. People don’t like the rain and they run from it as though it were droplets of poison falling from the sky and not water. But the rain is good, eh! Neat, you dig? Fun, it is? Yes, I think so.  The most famous Shakespeare line about rain is, I think, from Merchant of Venice, when Portia compares it to mercy: The quality of mercy is not strained. It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed. It blesseth him that gives and him that takes. And that’s...

Laverne Cox, the actress and advocate for LGBTQ rights, was targeted by a man who used anti-trans language as she was walking with a friend of hers in Los Angeles over the weekend. Cox is one of the most well-known transgender celebrities in the country and was the first openly transgender person to appear on the cover of Time magazine. But as Cox said in a video posted on Instagram shortly after the event took place, "It's not safe in the world. ... It's not safe if you're a trans person. ... It doesn't matter who you are. You can be, like, Laverne Cox, whatever that means. If you're trans, you're going to experience stuff like this." Cox explained that she was...
    Laverne Cox. Amanda Edwards/WireImage Actress Laverne Cox posted a video on Instagram after suffering what she called transphobic attack in Los Angeles on Saturday. Cox said it all when a man walked up to them and "aggressively asked for the time." When Cox's friend told him the time the man then asked, "Guy or girl?" referring to Cox, who is transgender.

    Have you ever taken a moment to look at the tag on your clothes to see where your clothes were made? Chances are, the tag will read: “Made in China” or another country outside of the USA. Although the label may seem harmless because a lot of our products are manufactured in different countries, there is so much more to the story than just a “made in ____”  label. We live in a “fast fashion” world, where companies produce high volumes of low-priced clothing at the expense of the environment and workers. Companies like Forever 21 and Zara process one million garments per day. Just imagine the resources involved, both human and otherwise. In the world’s least developed countries, an estimated 40 million people sew more than 1.5 billion garments in 250,000 factories and sweatshops each year. In many cases, these workers are not provided with basic workers’ rights, fair wages, and ethical...
    By Theresa Waldrop | CNN “You just have to dance, we can make a little money like that.” That’s what Shandel, then 13, said her boyfriend told her at a party he had taken her to some 12 years ago. And that’s how it all began, Shandel, now 25, recalled. Gradually, the man she thought of as the only person who loved her or even cared for her, demanded more. Much more — and she said he would physically abuse her if she refused. Even now, it is difficult for Shandel — who requested CNN use only her first name due to privacy concerns — to talk to strangers about what she was forced to do with men. She had left an abusive situation at home — her dad was on drugs, and her mother had “her own issues,” Shandel said. The man she left home for “was the first...
    Hair stylists have chimed in after Rudy Giuliani appeared to literally meltdown during Thursday's press conference, when streams of dark brown liquid streaked down his face in several rivulets.  While acting as President Trump's personal lawyer, Giuliani gave a winding press conference that once again sought to legitimize unfounded claims to widespread voter fraud.     But audiences were more enthralled by Giuliani's apparent hair malfunction, which left some hair stylists scratching their heads while others cringed.

    It's time to break out the fava beans and a nice Chianti, Clarice! The makers of a 'DIY meal kit' for growing steaks cultured from human cell samples have offered the reassurance that the concept is not 'technically' cannibalism. Ouroboros Steaks — named for and resembling the icon of a snake eating itself — were nominated for the London Design Museum's 2020 'Designs of the Year Award'. While one could culture meat from cells taken by a self-administered cheek swab, the team instead used research cells from the American Tissue Culture Collection. The cells were grown on a fungus scaffold in warm conditions for three months by feeding them with human serum sourced from expired, discarded blood donations. The resulting product — bite-sized human steaks — have been preserved in resin and put on display in both the Design Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  Those actually keen to put a...
    Chicken, broth, and vegetables make chicken noodle soup a healthy food for when you're sick.

    PARIS (Reuters) - Former French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday asked his successor Emmanuel Macron how he was doing in the face of crises ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic to Islamist attacks. "How are you doing? Is it not too hard right now?" Hollande asked Macron as they exchanged greetings at the tribute to soldiers killed during World War One at the Arc de Triomphe on the Paris Champs Elysees. Macron's answer was brief: "Yes. Thank you for being here. We have to talk about it." During his tenure, Hollande himself faced a string of deadly Islamist attacks in Paris in 2015 and in Nice a year later. In 2016 Hollande, faced with very low ratings, decided not to seek re-election. Relations between Hollande and Macron, his former economy minister, who quit the Socialist government to run for office, have not been always smooth. In his book Lessons of Power,...

After presenting his working group for the pandemic and highlighting the announcement of the pharmaceutical company Pfizer about the effectiveness of its vaccine, the future president issued a public statement whose focus was on the need to use masks to reduce the chances of infection. “As we work towards a safe vaccine, we know that the most effective act we can take to stop the spread of COVID-19 is to wear a mask. It is still our most efficient tool against COVID-19, “he said. Then, in a conciliatory effort on the outcome of the elections, he added: “No matter who they voted for, we...

    Defense is one of the major question marks that could push LaMelo Ball out of the top spot in the NBA Draft. But those concerns may be overblown. LaMelo Ball’s defense was not the reason he acquired over five million followers on Instagram before turning even 18 years-old. As it turns out, heaving from behind halfcourt mid-game and making at-home videos with your brothers plays better online than off-ball stunts and veer switches. On both plays, LaMelo recognizes that it’s his responsibility to drop down and deter a potential lob to a sealing big man (as preventing shots at the rim are still the most important component to good NBA defense), before closing out hard but under control to his own man. Even if the opponent in the first clip created separation and scored, I’m still impressed by LaMelo’s ability to seamlessly transition from a vertical sprint toward the perimeter...

    David Daley - Katie Fahey November 2, 2020 10:00AM (UTC) This year, Virginia voters have the rare opportunity to lead the way on making necessary structural change to our democracy by approving Amendment One on the general election ballot. This bipartisan state constitutional amendment will create Virginia's first redistricting commission and would prohibit partisan gerrymandering in Virginia once and for all.  That's the good news. The bad news is that some members of one political party have been stonewalling this progress over the last year. It's probably not the party you think.  : Although the history of the 2010 redistricting cycle unequivocally shows that Republicans created some of the most rigged, gerrymandered maps in our nation's history, this time it is some Virginia Democrats who have been the more recent roadblocks as Amendment One has moved toward the voters. For context, amending Virginia's constitution involves rigorous vetting. An identical version...
    Don’t worry, you’ll find something else,’ I reassured my friend. ‘This is the best thing that could have happened, you hated that job.’ My friend opened her mouth to say something and then closed it again. I kept going: ‘At least John still has work, you still have a roof over your head.’ She nodded but there were tears in her eyes as she said she had to go. As soon as we hung up our video call I knew I’d done the worst thing: instead of listening to how scared and sad she was, I had made my friend feel she was not allowed to feel bad about being made redundant from her job of eight years. I had showered her in something that’s recently been dubbed ‘toxic positivity’.

    This article is reprinted by permission from NerdWallet. If you’re tempted by the new benefits some Medicare Advantage plans are touting, the annual open enrollment season (Oct. 15 through Dec. 7) is the time to look. But finding a plan offering the benefits might be hard. Medicare Advantage, also known as Medicare Part C, is administered by private insurers and offers the same Medicare Part A and Part B benefits as Original Medicare. Many plans also include limited dental, vision and hearing coverage, and even gym memberships. Starting in 2019, new government rules have allowed Medicare Advantage plans to expand benefits even further. Commonly referred to as Special Supplemental Benefits for the Chronically Ill, or SSBCI, the new benefits can go beyond strict medical care and provide support that can help improve and prolong a sick person’s life.

    You have hits and misses when buying new weed. Lately, I've had a lot of misses. The weed itself has been fine, but my reaction to it — slow, groggy and despondent — has not been. Maybe this is a by-product of limiting myself to pre-orders out of ’rona fear and not engaging with budtenders before making my purchase (not that we're allowed to smell before we buy now anyway), or maybe my body is just changing; lord knows the shape of it has. Being the cheapskate that I am, though, an in-store-only sale was the only thing that was going to drag me inside a dispensary. And that's when I thought I'd found my dream strain for curing my weed woes. Initially presented with a lineup of potent OGs and Cookies varieties, I asked the budtender for something that was more on the straight-and-narrow path for daytime...

    Not only must women expect to lose their sex drive, sleep poorly, feel anxious and forget things, it now seems our voices conk out during the menopause, too. People may have been up in arms about Julia Sawalha, 52, no longer voicing Ginger in Chicken Run 2 because her voice was deemed too old, but, according the British Voice Association, the menopause can have a significant effect on our vocals.

Lady Gaga and a host of A-listers and athletes swear by the benefits of taking regular ice baths. 7Lady Gaga says taking regular ice baths is beneficial for your health Pop star Gaga, 34, says it helps manage the chronic pain, fatigue and poor sleep she has because of her fibromyalgia condition. But what are they really like? YASMIN HARISHA takes the plunge . . . I GRITTED my teeth as my toes touched the ice-cold water, anticipating the burning to my skin. All I had for protection was my swimming costume — and reassurance from Lady Gaga that taking the chilly plunge could ease muscle pain, boost metabolism and help me have a ­better night’s sleep. 7I added ten large buckets of cold tap water and 12,000 ice cubesCredit: Stewart...
    It looks like Twitter may finally, at long last, be allowing users to edit their tweets. Users began noticing it Sunday afternoon: If you delete a tweet reply, then try to reply again, the “deleted” text reappears, allowing you to fix any mistakes and re-send it. The News Brig’s Tom Warren demonstrated how it works: Other users (including myself) were not able to duplicate that action, but it’s possible Twitter is rolling it out slowly (if it’s rolling this out at all). Editable tweets are something Twitter users have long pined for, and begged Twitter to implement. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is on the record saying Twitter would “probably never” introduce a delete button. However, Twitter has rolled out other much-desired features recently, including making its reply-limiting feature available to all users, as part of the platform’s efforts to give people more control over their conversations. We’ve reached...
    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...
    Former Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell ripped into journalists on Friday during a briefing on an economic deal between Kosovo and Serbia when reporters asked instead about other topics -- suggesting the topic was “too complicated” for them. "I don't know if you can find it on a map, but this is atrocious. I have to tell you guys,” Grenell said at a White House briefing. TRUMP OVERSEES ECONOMIC DEAL THAT INCLUDES KOSOVO RECOGNIZING ISRAEL, SERBIA MOVING EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM Grenell, who served as special envoy for the talks, was speaking to journalists about the deal to normalize economic relations between the two former adversaries. The Belgrade-Pristina deal was signed by their two leaders –­ Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo's Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti –­ in front of Trump in the Oval Office, with Trump describing it as a "major breakthrough." The deal normalizes relations between the two on...
    A furious Joe Biden called Donald Trump's reported comments on American troops 'disgusting' and called on the president to apologize to Gold Star families who lost a loved one in service to the country. Biden used several tough words to condemn the president in one of his harshest attacks to date on Trump: 'sick, disgrace, deplorable, un-American, unpatriotic.' He said if the reported comments were accurate then they were 'absolutely damnable.'    'It's a disgrace,' he added.

    Christopher Nolan’s Tenet is finally hitting theaters in the United States, but not really. The film’s limited release in cities and states where theaters are allowed to operate means that many people — like those living in New York City or Los Angeles — can’t watch the movie. If you’re feeling bummed out about not being able to watch Tenet, may I offer you the excellent, safer alternative of streaming the movie’s score? Composed by Ludwig Goransson — the same artist who scored Black Panther, Creed, Creed II, and received an Emmy nomination for his work on The Mandalorian — Tenet’s score is a certified bop. It’s now available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music. Clocking in at just under an hour-and-a-half, the album is a stunning, futuristic sounding score that separates itself from the scores in other Nolan movies, including Hans Zimmer’s brilliant work on Inception and The...
    Dancing may not come naturally to everyone, but a new study finds that we all move to the rhythm of music, whether we want to or not. Researchers in Norway measured the micro-movements of people when music was played and found it was virtually impossible for them to stand completely still. 'Nobody has managed it so far,' says Alexander Refsum Jensenius, a professor of music technology at the University of Oslo. Music with a strong steady beat elicited the most movement, especially electronic dance music.  While laying to Norwegian folk music or traditional Indian music, which have less regular beats, didn't increase micro-movements as much compared to silence.  Scroll down for video  Researchers in Norway measured the micro-movements of people when music was played and found it was virtually impossible for them to stand completely still.

    Carla Surez. Carla Surez, after announcing that she suffers from Hodgkin’s lymphoma and that he will have to undergo chemotherapy treatment for the next six months, he went through the microphones of El Partidazo de la COPE and Radio MARCA. The tennis player says she is calm and that she is ready to fight. Your state: “At the moment I’m fine, I’m calm.” Signs of lymphoma: “I started noticing it a month ago. At first I had retching and nausea, we thought it was just a bad stomach.” Optimism: “In life you have to know how to fight and now it will not be less. The diagnosis within the bad is positive. It is curable” The US Open: “Something that makes me smile? That the Spanish are advancing in the US Open.”
    Advancements in robots have already changed our lives in many ways. Most of the time you don’t even notice it, but automated robotic systems have added efficiency and speed to countless industries. Now, as engineers continue to advance work on smaller and smaller robots, the possibility of microscopic machines one day traveling through our bodies is greater than ever. As New Atlas reports, a new study published in Nature sheds some light on the advancements being made and highlights the few hurdles that still stand between us and having tiny robot assistants cruising through our bodies to keep us healthy. Researchers at Cornell and other institutions have developed what they say is a first-of-its-kind robot that utilizes semiconductors to facilitate external remote control. They move via laser impulses and are small enough that they are right at home next to microorganisms that already live inside of us. According to...
    President Donald Trump envisions “riots like you have never seen” if Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is elected in November, Trump said in an interview with Laura Ingraham set to air Monday evening. “If it weren’t Donald Trump’s America — to just use the expression, as I’m president — you would have riots like you’ve never seen,” Trump said in footage previewed by Fox News’ John Roberts on Monday afternoon. “The Democrats have lost control of the radical left,” Trump added. “Don’t forget, Biden was not going to come out of his basement until the election.” The comments come the night before Trump is expected to visit the scene of unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and hours after Biden whacked the president over the issue in a speech in Pittsburgh. “These are not images of some imagined Joe Biden America in the future,” Biden said, response to images Trump has...
    The centre of the Milky Way is glowing. Yes, there’s a massive chonkin’ black gap there, and it can be a really energetic area, but you can find an added higher-electricity, gamma-ray glow, higher than and beyond the action we know about, and it is really a little something that is yet to be defined.   This glow is termed the Galactic Centre GeV Excess (GCE), and astronomers have been making an attempt to figure it out for many years. One hotly debated rationalization is that the glow may theoretically be manufactured by the annihilation of dark make a difference – but new study is a nail in that idea’s coffin. In a collection of exhaustive styles that include modern developments in simulating the galactic bulge and other resources of gamma-ray emission in the galactic centre, a staff of astrophysicists have dominated out dim issue annihilation as the supply of...
