A police mug shot taken in Lancaster County, S.C., is drawing attention across the country for what appears to be a blond woman with black eyes. The mug shot is of 24-year-old Morgan Joyce Varn, who faces charges of kidnapping, armed robbery and property damage in Lancaster County. She remained in the Lancaster County jail Friday without bond. It is the kind of case that typically doesn’t get attention beyond county lines, but the story was being picked up across the nation Friday due to Varn’s striking image: Full head of blond hair, pale forehead covered in tattoos, and the whites of her eyes appearing to be black and reflective like glass. Social media commenters quickly picked up on the photo,
Well, we’re definitely impressed. Britney Spears posted a pool stunt on Instagram that showed how incredible her balance is. Of course, she…
No one thought it would be easy, except, apparently Donald Trump. Nearing his 100th day in office, the US president sat down for an interview with Reuters on Thursday (Apr. 27) and spoke candidly about the trials of his job. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier,” he told Reuters. A photo taken during that interview by Reuters photographer Carlos Barria shows Trump shrunken amid his official surroundings, a perfectly-timed metaphor for the isolation and challenge of his new role. “You’re really into your own little cocoon, because you have such massive protection that you really can’t go anywhere,” Trump said. He sounded hemmed in by his presidential duties,
South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff says North Korea has test-fired a missile from the western part of its country. There were no other immediate details Saturday morning, including what type of missile was used. North Korea routinely test-fires a variety of ballistic missiles, despite United Nations prohibitions, as part of its push to develop a long-range ballistic missile capable of hitting U.S. shores. While shorter-range missiles are somewhat routine, there is strong outside worry about each longer range North Korean ballistic test. Saturday's launch comes at a point of particularly high tension. U.S. President Donald Trump has taken a hard line with Pyongyang and sent a U.S. aircraft supercarrier
It’s a strange time in the sports media world after ESPN fired 100 employees on Wednesday. The massive staff chop spawned strong opinions about who did and did not deserve to remain at the network. Most of those predictably have come from your average Twitter troll - “You spilled Starbucks on yourself, Adam Schefter? Well at least you still have a job” - but some of have come from within the industry. Former Sports Illustrated writer Jeff Pearlman used Stephen A. Smith as the face of the problem with ESPN’s layoffs - and the industry as a whole. In an essay, which specifically noted it was not Smith’s “fault” that he is paid exponentially more than anyone who was fired this week, Pearlman decried
The argument that even an "immaterial" error on official paperwork can justify deportation, put forward by the Trump administration in a recent Supreme Court case, would be sufficient to deport the President's wife, Melania. The First Lady of the United States reportedly failed to disclose earnings from nearly two months of illegal work in the USA on a visitor's visa, and subsequently failed to mention the offence on immigration documents. A Serbian woman was recently deported for failing to disclose her husband's history in the military, thus setting a technical precedent for deporting Ms Trump, as Slate reports.
