Bill Gates and Melinda Gates’ carefully crafted statement on the end of their marriage made a few key points clear, but left the public utterly without clues on what might have prompted the dissolution of their relationship after 27 years and raising three kids together. In that vacuum, rumors have begun to flow, as they […]
Bill and Melinda Gates may be more like the rest of us than we ever knew. Of course, we will never experience their level of wealth, but their marital problems are much like many ordinary people. While a source is telling People that it was a “combo of things” that led to their divorce, they […]
Just mere days after a huge brawl at Miami International Airport, another massive fight broke out in the terminal Tuesday night.
Colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer in the U.S. and the second leading cause of cancer-related death.According to the American Cancer Society, the rate of colorectal cancer in younger individuals been increasing steadily since the 1980s, with approximately 18,000 people under 50 diagnosed with the condition in 2020 alone. However, it's not just genetics that may predispose you to this deadly condition—a new study reveals that your choice of drink may be a major factor in your colorectal cancer risk.According to research published in the BMJ journal Gut on May 6, drinking sugar-sweetened beverages in adolescence and adulthood may increase a person's likelihood of developing early-onset colorectal cancer in their lifetime.Reviewing research conducted as part of the Nurses' Health Study II, which compiled data on 116,429 female registered nurses in the U.S. from 1991 to 2015, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri studied participants' sugar-sweetened beverage intake and early-onset colorectal cancer risk in adulthood. Researchers also identified and tracked early-onset colorectal cancer among a subgroup of 41,272 women who reported consuming sugar-sweetened beverages between ages 13 and 18.RELATED: The 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right NowAmong the pool of study subjects, researchers discovered 109 reported cases of early-onset colorectal cancer. Women who drank two or more 8-ounce servings of sugar-sweetened beverages a day as adults were more than twice as likely to develop early-onset colorectal cancer than those who consumed one 8-ounce sugar-sweetened beverage or less each week.Each daily 8-ounce serving of sugar-sweetened beverages woman drank between the ages of 13 and 18 increased her risk of early-onset colorectal by 32%."Despite the small number of cases, there is still a strong signal to suggest that sugar intake, especially in early life, is playing a role down the road in increasing adulthood colorectal cancer risk before age 50," explained Yin Cao, ScD, the study's lead author and an associate professor of surgery and of medicine in the Division of Public Health Sciences at Washington University, in a statement.However, just because you've been a big soda drinker in the past doesn't mean a future colorectal cancer diagnosis is a foregone conclusion. The study's authors also found that replacing those sugar-sweetened beverages with whole or reduced-fat milk, coffee, or artificially-sweetened beverages could potentially reduce a person's risk of early-onset colorectal cancer between 17 and 35%.For more ways to improve your health in a hurry, check out these 7 Ways to Reduce Your Cancer Risk in Seconds.

“Biden isn’t the next FDR,” tweets former president’s son. “He’s the next Jimmy Carter” Donald Trump Jr. faced immediate backlash Friday for trying to own not only current President Joe Biden, but also former President, Jimmy Carter. “Biden isn’t the next FDR he’s the next Jimmy Carter,” wrote former president Donald Trump’s son on Twitter, a platform from which his father is banned. Although Trump junior seemingly was suggesting that Biden would become a one-term president like Carter, who served from 1977-1981, social media took him to task and schooled him on Carter’s accomplishments… and integrity. “I cannot think of a nicer compliment than to be compared to Jimmy Carter,” replied political commentator Travis Akers. “An honorable, compassionate, and loving Christian man, loyal to his bride, Jimmy Carter is still teaching Sunday School and building homes for Habitat for Humanity in his 90s.” Other replies were less charitable. “Your father created fewer jobs than Jimmy Carter. Jimmy Carter didn’t kill 500,000 Americans. Preisdent Carter didn’t try to [overthrow the government] when he lost,” wrote Democratic activist Chris Hahn, referring to Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic as well as the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol that his supporters instigated when he lost to Biden. Former Tea Party congressman Joe Walsh continued his newfound pattern of criticizing right-wing figureheads, writing, “Hey Jr, I don’t know about that, but I do know that Biden beat your daddy pretty soundly.” “God, are you still a thing? I had blissfully forgotten you even existed for a couple months there,” mused author Michael Marshall Smith. “Also, Jimmy Carter is ten times the man your father is, and twenty times the man you’ll ever be.” The younger Trump was defensive. After Carter’s name began trending on the micro-blogging platform, he seized on the description Twitter provided for the trend, which said users were “confused” by his comparison. “Anyone who is supposedly ‘confused,’ by my below tweet should probably read the awful Biden job report out today, then take a peek at the rising prices of raw materials that we’re seeing and then finally google ‘Jimmy Carter inflation’….Things will make a lot more sense to you!” he wrote. As far as the jobs report released Friday by the Labor Department, the economy added 266,000 jobs in April, falling far below the million jobs economists expected. “Our efforts are starting to work. But the climb is steep, and we’ve got a long way to go,” Biden said in response to the report. “We’re still digging out of an economic collapse that cost us 22 million jobs.” Read original story Trump Jr Trounced for Jimmy Carter-Joe Biden 1-Term Dig At TheWrap

A big change in the weather will soon unfold across the Pacific Northwest thanks to the presence of an approaching storm system in the Pacific. Wednesday featured above-normal warmth across the Pacific Northwest. For example, Portland, Oregon, recorded a high temperature of 82 degrees; normally, the city only reaches 67 degrees on May 5. Farther south, Medford, Oregon, soared to 90 degrees, well above the typical value of 71 degrees. However, even where temperatures were close to normal farther inland, a big change is on the horizon. For most locations in the region, Thursday started off as another tranquil day. However, conditions began to change in the afternoon as rain moved into the coast. The cold front and storm creating this wet weather continued to sweep through the Northwest Thursday night and will progress into the northern Rockies on Friday. Ahead of the front, thunderstorms could break out in central Montana, northwestern Wyoming, southeastern Idaho and northwestern Nevada Friday. Some of those storms may contain hail and gusty winds, but widespread severe weather is not expected. Much colder air will advance eastward in the wake of the front. After temperatures in Boise, Idaho, soared to 90 degrees on Thursday, the mercury will struggle to reach the middle 60s Friday. Great Falls, Montana, had a high of 72 degrees on Thursday, but it will struggle to reach the lower 60s on Friday. "While the temperature drop from Thursday to Friday will be dramatic, lows are unlikely to threaten any records," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Mary Gilbert. CLICK HERE FOR THE FREE ACCUWEATHER APP In the higher elevations of Washington and Idaho, the air may be cold enough that rain showers could even mix with snow. It is not out of the question that the Cascades of Washington and the mountains of Idaho and western parts of Montana and Wyoming receive a light accumulation of snow Friday night. "With the influx of colder air on Thursday night, snow levels will also plummet, allowing flakes to fly as low as 2,500 feet," Gilbert said. Gilbert explained that any significant snow accumulation is unlikely because of the warmth preceding the storm. That said, it is not out of the question that the Cascades of Washington and the mountains of Idaho and western parts of Montana and Wyoming receive a light accumulation of snow Friday night. "Any wet roads could become slick, especially for the higher elevations," cautioned Gilbert. The below-normal temperatures, precipitation and wind are expected to stick around through the weekend. The coastal Northwest should begin to experience a warming and drying trend by Monday. However, over the interior, rain showers and higher-elevation snow showers will still be in the forecast. Much of the northern and central Rockies are expected to have rain and snow to deal with into Tuesday. Additional snow accumulations are also possible. By midweek, precipitation should come to an end across the entire area, and temperatures will trend upward.

TikTok/Alana LambertAlana Lambert and her friend Shekeria Thomas say they were eager to enjoy some sunny spring weather on Tuesday when they headed to New York City’s Central Park for a bike ride.But just as they were planning to head home after an hour-long ride, Lambert told The Daily Beast, her portable phone charger fell out of Thomas’ bag. Immediately, a woman picked it up and insisted the pair of Black women had to prove the charger was theirs, Lambert said.Thomas, 23, told The Daily Beast the woman “rushed to grab” the charger, and she was forced to ride after her. At first, she said, she “thought it was a joke.”“Things escalated quickly,” Lambert, a 22-year-old model, said on Friday. “For about a minute or so I was trying to talk to her reasonably. But when she called the police, saying that we were threatening and beating her, I was just in disbelief.”In a series of now-viral TikToks Lambert posted on Wednesday, the woman Lambert describes as the “new Central Park Karen” can be seen smirking as she apparently calls the police to accuse the pair of “touching” and “beating” her for refusing to return the phone charger.Detective Sophia Mason, an NYPD spokeswoman, told The Daily Beast on Friday there was no record of any 911 call made during the incident and there was no police report filed by any of the parties involved. Metadata reviewed by The Daily Beast shows that Lambert started to film the video on Tuesday at 6:41 p.m.During the contentious exchange, the woman repeatedly asks the pair to “prove” the charger is theirs, despite their insistence that it fell out of Thomas’ bag during their ride. Thomas said that the woman was “kind of aggressive and sinister” from the start of their 10-minute exchange.“There was no way I could prove the charger was mine but she kept asking why my name wasn’t on it or if I had a picture with it,” Lambert said. “I actually had a video of me from earlier in the bike ride that showed the charger but I knew at that point anything I said didn’t matter.”At one point, Lambert can be heard in the video asking the woman if she is racist. The woman replies: “Yes I am. I pick my race over any race, what’s your problem.”The maskless woman can be heard on the phone, telling what appears to be a 911 dispatcher that she is in Central Park and that “they’re going to beat me.”“They’re getting close to me and they’re already touching me,” the woman is heard saying as she tries to wheel her bike away from the two women. Thomas is heard insisting that the woman is lying, saying, “You know that’s illegal now, right?”Last June, New York City Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a law making it illegal to place false or racially fueled 911 calls weeks after Amy Cooper called police to accuse Black bird watcher Christian Cooper of threatening her life after he asked her to leash her dog in Central Park. Cooper, 41, was charged with filing a false report. The incident, filmed on the same day George Floyd died, triggered lawmakers to pass a series of criminal justice and police reform laws, and spurred a national discussion about white privilege.In a separate series of videos that Lambert said she filmed at the East Village precinct on Thursday, Lambert is heard attempting to file a police report. An officer tells them that the woman didn’t seem “mentally sane” and “doesn’t seem like a good person” but he didn’t think a crime had occurred.When Lambert asked him about the “Karens act”—possibly a reference to San Francisco’s new CAREN Act—the officer said he wasn’t aware of it.“It isn’t legal to make a false police report but from what that seems, it seems like she didn’t make a report, that the cops immediately knew that she was just, y’know, not all there,” the officer said.In another video, the officer is heard saying that the woman is “obviously not a good person” but “it’s not illegal to be a bad person,” and that cops determined the woman was “in the wrong there but it’s not criminality.”Lambert told The Daily Beast she was shocked by the officer’s reaction.“I have never heard of anyone being denied a police report,” Lambert added. “Honestly, I am kind of clueless about where to go from here. That was the police station. Those are the people I was supposed to go to. It was so disheartening and shocking.”Lambert’s TikToks of the incident, which she later posted on her YouTube and Instagram, have each been viewed at least 300,000 times. The initial video has 2.2 million views.Lambert said when the woman called the cops she was “relieved” because she was hoping officers would help her recover her charger. But, she said, she knew that she had to remain “patient and calm because the cops would see me as the aggressor.”“It was hard though because I was mad. And then when she said she was a racist, I was genuinely confused,” she said. “She just didn’t care.”At various times during the exchange, the woman threatened to break the charger, questioned the pair about who paid for it, and threatened to throw it away, claiming Lambert didn’t pay for it.Eventually, the woman is seen approaching a group of New York City police officers on horses, and telling them the two Black women had been “threatening” her. Lambert said that after she explained the situation to the officers, she was questioned briefly before getting her charger back.She said that while the incident was upsetting, being told she didn’t have grounds to file a police report was “heartbreaking.”At the end of one of the videos filmed in the police station, the officer is heard saying that he asked his sergeant if they could file a police report but they decided Lambert and Thomas didn’t have grounds to.When asked what they should do if this happens again, the officer said, “Always videotape. Video evidence is always the best evidence.”“I am still absorbing what happened,” Lambert said Friday. “I still want to press forward on the issue but it’s not something I’m trying to let consume my life. It’s just disheartening to know this can still so easily happen.”—Justin Rohrlich contributed reportingRead more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
