A young woman has told of a terrifying acid attack on her 21st birthday that left her hospitalized and her cousin in a coma. Resham Khan said she was in a car traveling through Beckton, East London, on June 21 when the horrific incident occurred. Resham tweeted: “On my actual birthday, my cousin and I went for a drive in the morning, blasting music and chilling like cousins do, hyping it as I WAS 21.” But out of nowhere, she said a man approached the car as they waited at a traffic light and threw a liquid at her through the open window. Resham, who said she had just returned from a year exchange in Cyprus, told how the assailant ran around to the other side and threw more over her cousin. She
The INSIDER Summary: Tom Holland plays Spider-Man in Marvel's movies, including the upcoming "Spider-Man: Homecoming." He confirmed a popular fan theory that his character first shows up in 2010's "Iron Man 2." It's a scene where a kid almost fights a big robot - before Iron Man swoops in to save him. Tom Holland - who's playing Peter Parker AKA Spider-Man in Marvel's movies - confirmed a theory that fans have been wondering about for nearly a decade. As it turns out, Peter Parker was teased back in 2010's "Iron Man 2," way back when the partnership with Sony, which own the rights to use Spider-Man in movies, and Disney, which owns Marvel, was a mere glint in Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter's eye.
Stephen Colbert was in Russia last week, he revealed on Monday's Late Show. His audience may not have been aware of his travels, but "you know who did know I was in Russia?" Colbert asked. "Russian intelligence - hard-core fans, evidently, followed me everywhere." He explained that he and his crew returned from Moscow Sunday night, that he was still on Russian time, and that he would show some of the several segments he shot there in coming weeks. "But while Russia was fascinating, it is sincerely wonderful to be back in America," Colbert said. "Let's see what everybody's talking about here. Oh that's right, Russia." He walked through the big Washington Post report that former President Barack
A man trying to help a lost toddler find her parents was misidentified as a kidnapper on social media over the weekend, according to police in Lakeland, Fla., prompting him to leave town in fear for his safety and the safety of his family. The man was also punched by the child’s father who told local media that he “thought he was trying to take my daughter” and “wanted to kill him.” The whole episode prompted the Lakeland Police Department to warn citizens to “be careful about what you post on social media so as not to victimize an innocent person … Before posting information on matters such as this, we encourage people to identify the source and the validity of such claims before sharing them.”
Jamie Collins, a 6-foot-3, 250-pound linebacker, made a ridiculous request. Collins begged Gregg Williams, his defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns, to let him play safety in 2016. At first, the idea sounded enticing. Collins played safety - and nearly every other position - during his time at Southern Mississippi. Why not experiment with a different position? On second thought, however, the idea is ludicrous. And frankly, the Browns should be disappointed Collins is “begging” to play a position that isn’t his natural NFL role. “He’s begging me to play free safety, and I’m not saying he couldn’t be the best one out there right now,” Williams said via Cleveland.com. “If he wants to
Reckless ruling blows a huge hole in the wall between church and state: Opposing view In America, houses of worship should continue to pay their own way. Religious institutions in this country have traditionally relied on voluntary support, not taxpayer funds, to grow and prosper. This system has worked well for us. Religion in America has thrived under this voluntary principle. Monday’s decision by the Supreme Court in Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer is starkly at odds with that great tradition. By asserting that houses of worship have a legal right to public funds in some cases, the high court has imposed a modern-day version of a church tax on all of us. Americans should have the right to
Three CNN journalists have resigned after the cable news operation had to retract a published report of a “Russia-related” article, CNN said this evening. The yanked article reported that Congress was investigating a “Russian investment fund with ties to Trump officials”; it cited a single anonymous source. Out are Thomas Frank, who wrote the report; Eric Lichtblau, an editor in CNN’s new investigative unit under which it was reported; and Lex Haris, who oversaw the…
