• 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

  • UPDATE: My sister sold our parents' home and pocketed the cash--what should I do now?

    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.

  • 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.
