• Putin showed a threatening video of nukes hitting Florida - and an outraged Trump snapped on him

    US President Donald Trump reportedly became outraged after Russian President Vladimir Putin showed a video of nuclear weapons hitting Florida before his reelection in March. During Putin's reelection campaign, where Russian authorities didn't allow meaningful opposition to run, he took to heavily touting the country's nuclear might. In a March 1 speech, Putin detailed several new nuclear weapons, each time stressing that US defenses could not handle the new designs. But one of the computer generated videos he used to illustrate the weapons showed them hitting Florida, where Trump frequently visits his Mar-a-lago golf club and resort. This enraged Trump and prompted a sharp response, a source

  • 'Papa John' Schnatter evicted from company headquarters in Louisville

    “With respect to John H. Schnatter," the board of directors at Papa John’s says “Papa John” Schnatter will no longer have a work space at the company headquarters in the wake of his latest controversy. On Sunday, Papa John’s International, Inc. issued a press release stating that the company will be terminating a sublease agreement with Schnatter, which had allowed him the use of office space within the building. The decision came following the board’s previous actions toward terminating Schnatter’s “founders agreement,” and removing his likeness from marketing materials after he admitted to using the N-word during a conference call in May 2018. “Since Mr. Schnatter no longer has an active role

  • Mom says daughter trapped in front-loading washing machine as it filled with water

    A Colorado mom awoke to a nightmare. Lindsey McIver said she and her husband were awakened early one morning last week to find her 4-year-old son crying so hard he could barely talk.  “As I was trying to understand what he was saying, my husband flew out of bed and down the stairs. It was then that the realization hit. He had said: Kloe. Inside. Washer.”  Their 3-year-old daughter was inside the washing machine. It was locked. It was filling with water. Kids told not to touch it  McIver said she decided to share what happened in a Facebook post, though she feared reliving the ordeal and inevitable mom shaming. The couple purchased a "new and cool" front-loading washing machine on July 9. The

  • 'Proud Boys' run out of LA bar by Democratic socialists calling them 'fascist'

    Members of the far-right “Proud Boys” were chased out of a Los Angeles bar on Saturday by a group of Democratic Socialist protesters. Video from the incident shows the leftwing activists shouting “No Proud Boys, no KKK, no fascist USA” at the group at LA bar “The Griffin.” The LA chapter of Democratic Socialists of America shared video of the incident on Twitter, in which their members and others from anti-gentrification group Defend North East Los Angeles can be heard chanting and yelling “F-ck you fascist,” “Get out of here, Nazi” and “Facist pigs, squeal ... you’re all swine.” The Proud Boys are a far-right organization of men that was started by a former founder of Vice Media.

  • Queen watches over Prince Louis in official christening portrait - but can you spot Her Majesty?

    Given her advancing years and remarkably busy schedule, it was understandable that the Queen, by mutual consent, chose not to attend Prince Louis’s christening. But the 92-year-old monarch poignantly retains a place in an intimate family portrait taken in the Morning Room at Clarence House last week, watching over the next generation of her family. The oil on canvas portrait of the Queen, by Michael Noakes between 1972 and 1973, appears to have been raised several inches up the wall from its previous position to ensure it is visible in the official picture by photographer, Matt Holyoak.  Below her, gathered together for the first time, are the faces of those who will carry the baton for decades to come, including all five Cambridges and Meghan Markle. In the absence of the Queen, Carole Middleton takes centre stage in the wider family snapshot, standing alongside the Prince of Wales and directly behind her daughter and 11-week-old grandson, peacefully sleeping following his baptism in The Chapel Royal at St James's Palace. Pippa Matthews, the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, who has a small pregnancy bump of her own, is joined in an official royal portrait for the first time by her husband, James Matthews, a hedge fund manager, who is positioned just behind her. The Cambridges, in their first official portrait as a family of five Credit: Matt Holyoak Prince George, four, smiles naturally, his head slightly tilted to one side as his father places a reassuring arm around his back while his three-year-old sister, Princess Charlotte, sits next to her mother, jauntily clutching her knee. When the group was last pictured together in the Morning Room, for Prince George’s own christening in October 2013, both Prince Harry and Ms Middleton, as she was then, were single. The Queen sat alongside the Duchess of Cambridge and the young future king, with the Duke of Edinburgh, behind her. The latest portrait conveys the gradual shift towards the next generation as the younger ranks are swelled by new births and happy marriages while the most senior members of the family take a back seat. The Queen, and the Duke of Edinburgh, 97, did not attend the christening in what was described as a "mutual decision" made some time ago. Sources insisted it was not due to ill health on the part of the Queen but because Her Majesty had a busy schedule in Scotland the previous week and in London in the following days, including the RAF centenary and the visit from Donald Trump. The Duchess of Cambridge holds Prince Louis in the garden at Clarence House following his christening Credit: Matt Holyoak The four photographs released by Kensington Palace  on Sunday night include an image of the Duchess of Cambridge gazing adoringly at her younger son, seen awake in public for the first time. Looking skyward in the sunny garden, the baby prince displays his big blue eyes while clutching onto his mother’s dress with a small chubby hand. In the first official portrait of all five members of the Cambridge family, Prince George appears slightly apprehensive, one hand plunged into his shorts pocket. His younger sister, meanwhile, displays the confident, possibly cheeky, personality that has already become familiar, smiling directly at the camera, one hand behind her back and the other holding onto Prince Louis’s christening gown, a replica of the 172-year-old royal christening robe. The next generation of The Firm gather together for Prince Louis's christening Credit: Matt Holyoak She had worn the gown herself at her own christening just three years ago and her elder brother two years before that. Mr Holyoak said: "I was truly honoured at being asked to take the official photographs at the christening of Prince Louis, and to witness at first hand such a happy event. “Everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure. I only hope I have captured some of that joy in my photographs." The photographer has worked with a host of celebrities, his photos regularly splashed on the covers of magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Shortlist and Dazed and Confused. He photographed the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as part of a series of portraits released to mark their 70th wedding anniversary.

  • Ask Amy: I was accused of abuse for teaching my child the facts of life

    DEAR AMY: I am a physician and a widower. Most importantly, I’m the father of a brilliant and deeply inquisitive 12-year-old girl. I have raised my daughter (by myself) since she was six months old. We are very close. I noticed signs that she would soon be experiencing puberty, and I knew she would have lots of questions. I had a series of talks with her about things like hormones, body changes, romantic relationships and safe sex. Before I started each of these conversations I told her that if she was uncomfortable talking to her dad about this, I would be happy to arrange it so she could talk to her doctor (who is a woman), or any other of the wonderful women I have worked hard to have in her
