Roy Moore, the bombastic Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama, claims NFL protesters who kneel during the national anthem are violating federal law. Moore, in an interview with TIME.com published Wednesday, made the case that NFL players - and conceivably, anyone else - who fails to stand and put their hands over their hearts when the "Star-Spangled Banner" is played is not only unpatriotic, but a law breaker. "It's against the law, you know that?" Moore told the magazine. "It was a act of Congress that every man stand and put their hand over their heart. That's the law." Moore told TIME that his position is about respect for the law and for fallen soldiers. "I back the president in
The billionaire Virgin Group founder says the meeting was focused on the fallout from the bankruptcy of one of Trump's companies.
Leave it to human ingenuity to solve almost anything. Lauren Mesaros, a California nurse, needed to flee from the Tubbs Fire going on in Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties in Northern California. Mesaros also needed to get her three horses, including her pony Stardust, away from the flames as well. The problem? The trailer only held two of the three horses. Mesaros' solution? Put Stardust in the car. “He actually walked right into the car like a dog would,” Mesaros said in an interview with SF Gate. Mesaros said she put Stardust into the back of her 2001 Honda Accord, aided by her friend Carol Spears, whom Mesaros described as “a horse whisperer.” Mesaros' sister-in-law posted the picture to Facebook,
Most of us can but dream of rocking up to the club and casually meeting a member of a royal family. But, that's what happened to Ariana Austin on the dance floor of Washington D.C. nightclub Pearl back in December 2005 when she met Joel Makonnen, a.k.a. Prince Yoel. The story didn't end there for Austin and Makonnen. Twelve years on from their nightclub meet-cute, the couple tied the knot, and Austin became a princess. SEE ALSO: Prince George's favourite film proves once and for all he just can't wait to be king Per the New York Times , Prince Yoel is the great-grandson of Haile Selassie, the last emperor of Ethiopia, part of the Solomonic dynasty. Austin also happens to be of noble blood: she's the granddaughter of the lord mayor of Georgetown, Guyana. A post shared by Ariana Austin Makonnen (@chezariana) on Sep 15, 2017 at 7:14am PDT Enough about royalty, we want to know what went down in that nightclub on that fateful night in 2005. That night, Makonnen strolled over to Austin and her friend and said: "You guys look like an ad for Bombay Sapphire," according to the NYT . It appears Makonnen's regal background didn't help him out in the chat-up line department. Apparently, it took Makonnen just five more minutes to tell Austin: "You're going to be my girlfriend." Well, he certainly didn't waste any time. Official pics are here! All credit to the talented @dotunayodeji.

And, in case you were wondering, the couple certainly don't sit on thrones all day long. Austin works at the Executives' Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, and Makonnen works at Otsuka America Pharmaceutical. Congrats to the happy (royal) couple!

Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren asked Wednesday what NFL players were protesting when they take a knee during the national anthem, saying you could get "a hundred different answers" about what the gesture means. "I would like to ask these players 'What exactly are you kneeling for and why have you chosen the flag and the anthem to do it?" Lahren asked on "Fox and Friends." The action of kneeling during the national anthem before football games first began with then-San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a means of protesting against social and racial injustice in the U.S. "I bet if we asked a hundred players, we would get a hundred different answers. And then further more, I would
