Russia did not win the 2018 FIFA World Cup. As it was, after a series of encounters in which the team displayed discipline and flair under head coach Stanislav Cherchesov that surprised many, they made it to the quarter-finals, only to lose to Croatia after extra time and penalties. At a press conference with Donald Trump following their first formal bi-lateral summit, Putin stood and watched as the US president told the world he trusted the word of the Russian leader as much as that of his own intelligence chief.

Reality-TV fisherman Edgar Hansen pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a teenage girl in September, but he’ll face no jail time under a plea deal quietly reached last week with Snohomish County prosecutors. Instead, Hansen, 47, received a 364-day suspended jail sentence and was ordered to pay court fines and fees of $1,653, court records show. He also must undergo a sexual-deviancy evaluation and treatment and give a DNA sample to authorities. Neither Hansen’s lawyer, Todd Maybrown, nor Matthew Baldock, the deputy prosecuting attorney assigned to the case, immediately returned messages Monday seeking comment about the case.

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.

People with this personality trait are more likely to cheat - and it's harder to catch than you think
In a 2017 Gallup poll, only 9% of Americans said infidelity was morally acceptable. If you've never cheated, then you might have a hard time understanding what drives a person to break the bonds of trust in a relationship. What inspires someone to jeopardize their existing partnership for the sake of one night with a stranger? How does someone live with themselves while secretly dating multiple people at once? As it turns out, there's actually a specific personality trait that tends to crop up in the psychological profiles of people who repeatedly cheat on their partners. Experts seem to agree: cheating and narcissism go hand in hand. True narcissism is more than simply liking what you see in
