I’m always open:

    GENEVA (Reuters) - China said on Tuesday that it was discussing a visit to its Xinjiang region by United Nations human rights chief Michelle Bachelet, but that she should not set out with the aim of condemning its practices. Bachelet said on Friday that reports about arbitrary detention, ill-treatment, sexual violence and forced labour in Xinjiang necessitated a thorough and independent assessment of the situation. "The door to Xinjiang is always open, and we welcome the High Commissioner to visit Xinjiang. Communication is kept up between the two sides, but the aim of the visit is to provide exchanges and cooperation rather than ... so-called investigation based on 'guilty before proven'," China's delegation told the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva. (Reporting by Stephanie Nebehay; Editing by Kevin Liffey) Copyright 2021 Thomson Reuters. Tags: United Nations, Islam

On today’s episode of The Real, Salt-N-Pepa responded to DJ Spinderella’s recent claims, telling the co-hosts, “perception is not reality.” In a series of tweets last week, DJ Spinderella, a former member of Salt-N-Pepa, aired out her frustrations with the recent Lifetime Salt-N-Pepa biopic.

    Laura Ingraham’s Tuesday night interview with Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., enraged the far left, but the ‘Ingraham Angle’ host cited the nation’s need for bipartisan conversation during her monologue Wednesday. Ingraham said she and progressive Khanna set aside their differences and focused on common ground issues, including military spending and overseas deployment. Khanna said he supported President Trump’s drive to remove troops from Afghanistan, leading Ingraham to conclude that the president had gotten through to progressives in at least one respect.. “In the House, neither the populist-conservatives nor the anti-war Democrats like Khanna represent a majority,” she said. “But together, they can form a powerful voting bloc to move policy and oppose what may be coming down the pike should Biden assume the presidency.” FORMER US SERVICE MEMBER CHARGED WITH SUPPORTING SYRIAN TERRORIST ORGANIZATION Ingraham added Khanna had also voiced “legitimate, important” concerns regarding potential Biden secretary of defense nominee Michele Flournoy, saying her pro-intervention...

Side Splitters, Snappers, Tampa Improv and Coconuts all opened their doors for libations and laughter months ago. But over the weekend, McCurdy's Comedy Theatre in Sarasota, a local staple for more than 30 years, opened back up with local favorites Helen Keaney and Carmen Ciricillo. That puts all comedy club stages up and running at the same time, and that hasn't happened since... well, you know.

    The Argentine Diego Schwartzman has been around the circuit for a few years now. Diego is probably the smallest man on tour, measuring at a height of 170 cms (5 ft 7 inches). He was the shortest man to make it to a Grand Slam quarter-final.  This small guy from Buenos Aires doesn’t feel suppressed by the taller or bigger players. Diego has beaten the likes of Zverev, Cilic, and Kevin Anderson. It indicates that he doesn’t feel intimidated by his opponent’s size. It also shows his ability to cover the court against these guys. With each passing year, the Argentine has certainly upped his level of gameplay.  Schwartzman happens to be the next Argentine to qualify for London after Juan Martin del Potro. Del Potro has had constant troubles with injuries during this career. He is known as the first man to beat Federer and Nadal en route to...

              Two days before the Election Day 2020, Governor Mike DeWine delivered an open letter to Ohioans. In it, he called for unity and for the people of the Buckeye State to renew their commitment to “fight the coronavirus.” “On this Sunday before Election Day, I encourage you to vote if you have not already done so. Exercise and enjoy this sacred right that we, as Americans, hold so dear,” the letter begins. It continues: Even in calmer times when we were less divided, rhetoric in the final throes of top-of-the-ticket campaigns almost always has been hot, animated, and somewhat exaggerated. Today, however, we truly have a nation more divided than any of us can remember. It seems that many on each side genuinely feel our country will fall apart if the other side wins. Despite this deep divide, there is still so much...

    Three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka earned his spot in the quarterfinals at St. Petersburg Open, after winning a three-set match against Evgeny Donskoy 6-1, 3-6, 6-3. At the French Open 2020, Wawrinka was halted by the French wildcard player, 19-year-old Hugo Gaston. After advancing to the last eight, the former French Open champion sang the praises of the 13-time Roland Garros champion Rafael Nadal. “What [Rafael Nadal] is achieving so far in the French Open is one of the greatest achievements of any sports probably, winning 13-time [the] French Open.

    When Rafael Nadal stepped on to Court Phillippe-Chartier last Sunday, he was beaming with confidence. And rightfully so, the 34-year-old went on to clinch the 2020 French Open in straight sets. It is the 13th time Nadal is standing tall at Roland Garros, a record that he’s extending with each passing year. But whenever Rafa wins in Paris, he always fears that it might be his last!  Rafael Nadal has been gracing Roland Garros since 2005. The Spaniard also won his first title the same year, about fifteen years ago. This is a record in itself as Nadal became the first player in the open era to win a majors tournament 15 years after winning the first one.  Everything went right for Rafael Nadal at the 2020 French Open. In fact, he was so dominant that no player managed to take a set away from him. This is the fourth...
    President Trump slammed Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s response to the coronavirus Thursday and addressed her suggestion that he was “complicit” and encouraged an alleged plot to kidnap her. “Governor Whitmer of Michigan has done a terrible job,” the president tweeted Thursday. “She locked down her state for everyone, except her husband’s boating activities. The Federal Government provided tremendous help to the Great People of Michigan.” Trump continued: “My Justice Department and Federal Law Enforcement announced today that they foiled a dangerous plot against the Governor of Michigan. Rather than say thank you, she calls me a White Supremacist—while Biden and Democrats refuse to condemn Antifa, Anarchists, Looters and Mobs that burn down Democrat run cities.” “I do not tolerate ANY extreme violence,” Trump continued. “Defending ALL Americans, even those who oppose and attack me, is what I will always do as your President!

    No one does celebrations quite like Paulina Gretzky and Dustin Johnson. On Wednesday, Gretzky shared a collection of clips on her Instagram story from the couple’s afternoon outing with friends Kristina and Matt, which included stunning views aboard a boat in Palm Beach, Florida, as well as a new TikTok video.

    There may be some stirring, shuffling and scurrying about taking place on the other side of the hedges and gates that surround and protect Augusta National this week after what the Masters powers that be just witnessed at the US Open. Bryson DeChambeau dismantled Winged Foot en route to winning the US Open with a bombs-away style that has to make the Masters officials shudder at the thought of what he might do to their golf course in November, as he tries to win a second consecutive major championship. If DeChambeau was able to win the US Open by six shots, the only player to finish under par on a golf course with suffocating fairways and strangling rough, what might he be able do at Augusta National, where the fairways are generous and there’s virtually no rough? This is how DeChambeau described his week’s work at Winged Foot, when he...

    Sylvester Stallone is ready to debut the artwork that inspired his 1976 classic, “Rocky.” “He’s been painting since the ’70s. He wrote ‘Rocky,’ but before it was a script, it was a painting.

Stallone has been working on an exhibit at Berges’ Soho gallery that was expected to open next month. The exhibit is now expected to open in spring of 2021. “Sylvester has been spending [COVID-19] lockdown at his Malibu beach home with his wife and three kids, but I know for a fact he has been painting and is still looking forward to his one-man show in Soho.
