The Mayflower had a few false starts before its trailblazing sea voyage to America more than 400 years ago. A sleek robotic trimaran retracing the 1620 journey of the famous English vessel had to turn back Friday to fix a mechanical problem.

She said she hoped that her new Centre for Early Childhood could help to make it “more common to speak about emotions and feelings” which would in turn enable adults to better understand how affection affects their own behaviour. The Duchess, 39, met experts to discuss how to drive awareness of the importanc
Less than three weeks into the season, the Gulf Coast of the United States was bracing for its first significant impact of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season on Friday. Tropical storm warnings were plastered along the coast from southwestern Louisiana to the far western Florida panhandle, and AccuWeather meteorologists continued to warn that tropical storm conditions will arrive on Friday, well in advance of the storm's arrival along the coast Friday evening or early Saturday morning.

The double-cheeked embrace that was a customary greeting in France before the coronavirus pandemic saw it largely abandoned as a potential kiss of death is back with a presidential seal of approval.
