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

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.

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.

Paralympian, curvy models and breastfeeding mom stun in swimsuits as Sports Illustrated doubles down on inclusion
Sports Illustrated brought inclusivity and diversity together Sunday night in a phenomenal finale catwalk show at W South Beach hotel during Paraiso ‘s Miami Swim Week. Body positivity was a key theme for the show, bringing together women of all body types - including Paralympian snowboarder Brenna Huckaby , Sports Illustrated cover star Danielle Herrington , and even a model breastfeeding her baby while strutting the catwalk in a gold, glittery bikini. The breastfeeding model, Mara Martin , was cast through Sports Illustrated Swimsuit ‘s first-ever open casting call held in Miami over the weekend. Hundreds of aspiring models of all shapes and sizes and different ethnic backgrounds were encouraged to attend and were then selected by a team of expert panelists including Christie Brinkley , Kate Upton , Hunter McGrady , Olivia Culpo , and more. Hundreds of guests gathered Sunday evening around the W South Beach pool to watch as Huckaby opened the show, baring her prosthetic leg, followed by models who proudly showed off their stretch marks, tattoos, cellulite, and curves. One improvement that could be made in the show’s casting would be the inclusion of models from a greater number of ethnic groups, such as Asians, who were notably absent from the cast. Even so, the runway show marked a considerable step forward in emphasizing body positivity in the swimsuit market, which has trailed behind other areas in fashion. Over the past few years, Sports Illustrated has made strides toward inclusion, which culminated in the evening’s diverse runway representation. In 2015, plus-size model Ashley Graham was the first curvy model to be featured in the magazine. Graham made SI history for a second time in 2016 when she was chosen to be on one of three covers for the magazine’s annual swimsuit issue. In 2017, SI held its first-ever runway show during Miami Swim Week to launch its size-inclusive swim line . In 2018, Herrington made history as the third black model to be on an SI swimsuit cover, though this was met with some backlash from critics who felt the magazine was still sexualizing women even in the wake of the #MeToo movement. According to the Associated Press , “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit editor MJ Day says that even though the issue was conceived and shot before the #MeToo movement heated up last fall, it’s about more than just women in swimsuits. Day says the magazine is ‘creating and giving platforms to these women’ and presenting them as multidimensional people.” The same issue featured a body-positive editorial spread with model McGrady, Olympian Aly Raisman , Robyn Lawley, and Sailor Brinkley Cook posing nude with words of affirmation such as “confidence” and “worthy” covering their bodies. Sports Illustrated ‘s pivot toward body positivity has been well-received, as evidenced by the loud applause and cheers from the hundreds of guests in attendance as the models strutted down the runway Sunday night. The support continued on social media, with one Instagram user writing , “ What you guys have done is so powerful. I applaud you in every way. I have to add this amazing company into my life,” and another person wrote, “Loving the diversity!!!! Thank youuuuu.” As for the swimsuits themselves, the show featured an exhaustive list of over 40 brands including Stella McCartney, Jonathan Simkhai, and more that highlighted key fashion trends. Bikinis were styled with the fashionable Matrix- style tiny sunglasses , clear visors à la Dior, and Jacquemus’s revival of the oversized sun hat. It was a remarkable moment to see women of all backgrounds come together to showcase that there’s no single body type that’s considered sexy or beautiful. Ahead, see highlights from the Sports Illustrated s wimsuit show.

This woman believes her sister may have run away with her father's money Dear Moneyist, My parents both passed away: my dad in 2004 and my mom in 2012. Dad had put their house in my youngest sister's name before he died. It was in their will that, if anything were to happen to them, their house was to be sold and split between the kids. Well, my youngest sister did not seek the house when my mom passed but, instead, rented it out for four years and pocketed the rent money. She has her own house and, last year, she sold my parents' house and told us there was no money there. So we didn't get a thing from it. She is a nurse.
