    The last time the World Series was held in a single ballpark, there was a bit of a conundrum over where the two managers would stay. It was 1944. World War II was raging. The major leagues carried on with rag-tag rosters. And the lowly St. Louis Brown actually managed to win the AL pennant. That set up a “Streetcar Series” against St. Louis’ far more popular Cardinals, who cruised to the NL pennant while sharing Sportsman Park with the Browns. Here’s the catch: Since there was a shortage of housing during the war, and the teams were never at home at the same time during the regular season, the two managers — Luke Sewell of the Browns and Billy...

    Paris Hilton insists that until a recent trip to Greece with her boyfriend Carter Reum, she hadn't taken a vacation since she was 15 years old — but countless photos of her in swimsuits taken over the last two and a half decades tell a different story. In her new YouTube documentary, This is Paris, the 39-year-old star said: 'My last vacation was probably when I was 15. With my family. It's just been nonstop work.' But Paris has spent decades in the spotlight — and in front of cameras, which have captured her enjoying the beach in Hawaii, Spain, the UK, Indonesia, Italy and Mexico. Bending the truth? Paris Hilton said in her new documentary that her 'last...

    For the last four years, the busiest people in journalism have been the fact-checkers who compile Trump’s lies, which total well over 20,000. Early in this administration, there were discussions about what it would mean to have a president that the people couldn’t trust. At the time, it was feared that, should Trump proclaim that military intervention in a country like Iran was necessary, the majority wouldn’t believe him. Thankfully, that hasn’t happened. These days, however, the president is compounding his own lies with a corruption of the entire federal government. We saw that happen last fall with the controversy that became known as “Sharpie gate.” The White House pressured the Commerce Department, which oversees the National Weather Service, to contradict its scientists in...

    Sweden has just 13 patients in intensive care and has suffered an average of a single death per day for the last 10 despite avoiding lockdown. Stockholm's strategy of 'herd immunity' - once backed by Downing Street - to allow the disease to spread through the population, was criticised as reckless but the data increasingly vindicates the decision. Sweden (population 10 million) has 13 patients in intensive care, by comparison the United Kingdom (population 66 million) has 843 patients in hospital, 80 of them on ventilators.
