    THROUGHOUT the coronavirus pandemic we have all become familiar with the three main signs of infection. But experts have warned that these are likely to be different in the Omicron variant which has made its way to the UK in the last week. 2If you catch the new Omicron strain then it's likely you'll experience different symptoms to what the NHS has previously set outCredit: Getty So far 42 cases of the variant have been detected in the UK and Dr Jenny Harries, Chief Executive of UKHSA, said it is “very likely” more cases of the highly mutated strain Omicron will emerge. If you catch Omicron, or if you are a contact of someone who has caught it then you have to isolate for ten days, regardless of your vaccine status. But experts have said that Omicron could be hard to spot, as it might not be as obvious as previous strains. The NHS continues to say that a new persistent cough, a high temperature and a loss of taste and smell are the key symptoms of Covid-19. Professor Tim Spector, of...

    Waukesha attack suspect Darrell E. Brooks’ lawyer has moved to stop defending him in other felony cases, citing conflicts of interest after his client allegedly plowed an SUV into crowds of people attending the Christmas parade. Filed two days after the attack, the motion claims that defense attorney Joseph Domask of Milwaukee County had “direct and indirect” relationships with “individuals, families, groups, organizations and the communities” affected by the massacre, creating a conflict of interest: Relationships and familiarities, both direct and indirect, between Attorney Domask and members of Domask Law Office and individuals, families, groups, organizations and the communities affected by incidents arising on November 21, 2021 in the Waukesha County Holiday Parade have created a concurrent conflict of interest in Attorney Domask’s representation of Mr. Brooks in this case.

    A WIFE has lifted the lid on the strict marriage rules she has with her husband and it has divided opinion. TikTok user Brittney Rogers revealed that watching porn is banned in their relationship and they would never go to a bar without each other. 3TikTok user Brittney Rogers revealed the 'marriage rules' she has with her husbandCredit: TIKTOK 3She continued that she and her husband don’t watch porn or have friends of the opposite sex unless they are pals with both of themCredit: TIKTOK The woman, who posts under @brittneyrogers8, said: “Things that my husband and I do in our marriage that most people get ‘mad’ about.” Another rule they have is they split all payments and keep their finances separate.

    Thousands of people are landing in the United States from South Africa every week, despite a new COVID-19 variant sparking such concern that Britain and Israel on Thursday effectively halted travel from the region. The variant is predominately found in Botswana - from where there are no direct flights to the U.S. - and also in neighboring South Africa. United Airlines currently fly direct from Johannesburg to New York City seven days a week, with the 16-hour flight leaving at 10pm and arriving at 7am in Newark.

    Anti-LGBTQ providers are offering a disproven, harmful 'therapy' in Guatemala and Costa Rica as well as in the United States, according to a new investigation. Christian groups in the United States have been helping to promote anti-LGBTQ "conversion therapy" outside of the country, according to an investigation published on Wednesday by openDemocracy, a U.K.-based global news outlet. As part of the investigation, reporters who went undercover as LGBTQ people seeking mental health services from Christian groups were connected to providers offering the "therapy." "Conversion therapy" is a misnomer for a disproven practice that falsely claims LGBTQ people's sexual orientation or gender can be corrected or changed. The groups are Focus on the Family, Exodus Global Alliance, and Courage International. Focus on the Family, an anti-LGBTQ organization that proclaims "marriage is intended by God to be a thriving, lifelong relationship between a man and a woman," is headquartered in Colorado. Courage International, which calls itself "a Roman Catholic apostolate for men and women who experience same-sex attraction and those who love them," is...
    Q: Last month at lunchtime, my husband was running along Fremont’s Ardenwood Boulevard near his work when two large pitbulls from a homeless encampment ran toward him and knocked him down. One was barking and snarling, while the other latched onto his foot. He was lying trapped on the ground on a busy street. Just then he heard a car screech on its brakes, slam on its horn and turn sideways next to him. The driver told him to hop in the back seat. Since the horn scared off the dogs, my husband felt it was safe for him to walk back to his office. Still shook up, though, he never got the driver’s name to thank him. After my husband started walking, he heard the dogs again, realized someone else could get hurt and he needed to call the police. He flagged down another motorist to borrow a phone. Two animal control trucks came and dealt with the dogs. My husband went to urgent care. His foot was very bruised and sore, but he didn’t need stitches. If not...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — In Spring Garden, a project is keeping people fed, and they hope it will also help keep people warm this winter. “This is something that came from our wish list,” Rachael Ketterer with Spring Garden Community Pantry said. READ MORE: By Plane Or Train, Philadelphia Travelers Head Out Before The Thanksgiving HolidayOutside the headquarters of SEIU Local 668 on Spring Garden Street, Ketterer is restocking the Spring Garden Community Pantry. “Things go really quickly, so we know that there’s a need,” Ketterer said. The pantry is just an unplugged, unlocked fridge. Residents started the project this spring and filled it with nonperishable food for anyone to take. This little food pantry on the sidewalk is always open, and always free. “We’re not collecting any money. It’s people bringing things from their own pantries, or going to the stores themselves and just bringing things that they see people need,” Ketterer said. Ketterer and Teresa Rodriguez are two of the volunteers who keep it stocked. “Food insecurity is a real crisis as a nation that, we as a...

    Chrissy Teigen is facing backlash for showing off the results of her eyebrow transplant as critics pan her for publicizing her 'rich people problems' while others are suffering and struggling to pay their bills ahead of the holidays.  The 35-year-old cookbook author revealed on her Instagram Stories on Sunday that she had undergone a hair transplant procedure to fill in her eyebrows after tweezing them all off.  Teigen, who tagged her doctors Dr. Jason Diamond and Dr. Jason Champagne, shared before-and-after shots of her new look while warning teenagers not to overpluck their brows as she did.  The model is known for being candid about her life, including her cosmetic surgeries, but a number of Twitter users found her post about her eyebrows to be 'out of touch with reality.'  Criticism: Chrissy Teigen, 35, is facing backlash for showing off the results of her eyebrow transplant surgery on her Instagram Stories on Sunday  Transformation: The cookbook author shared before-and-after shots of her new look while warning teenagers not to overpluck their brows as she did Frustrated: Teigen is known for being candid about...
    Kyle Rittenhouse is not a hero. He's an idiot. A deluded, naïve, dumb 17-year-old teenage kid with aspirations to be a wannabee Rambo. The fact he was able to arm himself with a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle is yet another example of the insanity of America's gun laws, or lack of them. But there is no doubting that he was legally able to do so. Just as he was legally permitted to defend himself with the gun when he came under attack from Black Lives Matter protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin. That's why he walked free from court last Friday, and why the verdicts were the correct ones if you bother to study Wisconsin's unambiguous self-defense laws. You might not agree with those laws, just as I don't agree with Rittenhouse being able to carry such a weapon of war (Wisconsin state allows minors to possess shotguns and rifles so long as they're not short-barreled) when he's too young to buy a beer in the same state - but you can't deny they are the laws. Kyle Rittenhouse is not a hero....
    IT can be heartbreaking to watch your little one battle eczema. The skin condition causes itchiness, redness and inflammation, which can be uncomfortable and sometamazimes sore for the sufferer. 1Shampoo may be a trigger for your child's eczemaCredit: Getty There are seven types of eczema.  Atopic eczema - the most common type - is when the skin is unable to retain moisture. It becomes dry which makes the skin more likely to react to irritants. Contact dermatitis is when bouts of eczema are caused by a specific substance, sometimes causing a reaction days later.  One in every five children is affected by eczema at some stage, according to the British Skin Foundation. There is no cure for the condition, but sometimes people “grow out” of it or have long periods without it. People live with the skin condition by using treatments and learning what triggers their flare-ups. But Dr Derrick Phillips, Consultant Dermatologist and British Skin Foundation spokesperson, said: "It is not always possible to identify triggers for eczema. "Parents should focus on reducing the risk of flares by...
    DEAR ABBY: I have worked for the same boss for nearly 40 years. He’s in his mid-70s; I’m in my mid-60s. Because we’ve been together for so long, we’re close friends. Our families are close as well. Jeanne Phillips  He recently confided to me that he’s concerned he may be in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. He hasn’t seen a doctor yet to confirm this, but I have noticed questionable symptoms for some time. These could be explained by other things (he walks more slowly due to a recent knee replacement, etc.). My question is: When others ask me if he’s feeling OK or if he’s ill, what should my response be? I will not betray his confidence, but I don’t know what to say when people question his health status. I don’t want to have an attitude that seems like “I know something you don’t know,” but I also don’t want to be so vague they will continue asking questions.

    Dancer auditions for a soon-to-open Las Vegas strip club were cut short by the fire marshal after too many people showed up to watch the tryouts, with one host reminding a crowd pushed against the stage of this month's Astroworld stampede. Tryouts for Club Ice were held last Wednesday at Blume Lounge in Henderson, Nevada - just outside of Vegas. The event proved to be a little too popular, with TMZ reporting that 1,000 women signed up and the Fire Marshal had to shut it down to avoid any potential injuries. At one point, a host is heard saying: 'This motherf***** too packed, y'all gotta back up. Y'all seen that s*** happen with Travis Scott the other night, y'all better pack up,' referring to the deadly stampede at the Houston festival that killed 10 people.  Auditions for dancers at the upcoming Club Ice were reportedly shut down by the fire marshal  'Y'all not gonna be suing me, talking about 'I let y'all do this s***,' a man who appeared to be a host said.

    OAKLAND (KPIX) — Officials in Oakland have major plans to revitalize and improve access to the waterfront, largely thanks to the infusion of federal funds that will turn those plans into reality.

    Since early 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic took hold and cases and deaths climbed — forcing the shutdown of businesses and campuses, quarantines and self-isolation — the numbers for homicide and aggravated assault in the Twin Cities began to climb.  In Minneapolis, homicides were up by 75 percent in 2020 over the previous year, and the number of murders in 2021 is on pace to surpass last year’s total. Meanwhile, robbery is up 30 percent in 2021 compared to 2020 while aggravated assault is up 24 percent.  It was much the same in St. Paul, where last year’s 34 homicides matched the most in city history, while aggravated assault rose by 31 percent.  But amid the spike in crime during the pandemic, one category of violent crime saw a significant decline in reporting, in both Minneapolis and St. Paul: rape.  Article continues after advertisement After recording 426 rapes in 2018 and 495 in 2019, Minneapolis reported 373 rapes in 2020, a 25 percent decline, and 363 so far in 2021. St. Paul saw a similar trend. There, the number of reported...
    Anti-abortion Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI) slammed government mandated vaccines on the House floor Wednesday, calling it a power grab. “It is such a gross grab of power to think you can tell other people what you have to do with your own body.” Grothman is staunchly anti-abortion and was given a 0% rating from the pro-choice nonprofit, NARAL. The Biden administration is requiring that employees at companies with 100 or more workers must either be vaccinated or tested for Covid-19 on a weekly basis. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will oversee this directive. Moreover, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will enforce the administration’s mandate requiring all healthcare workers at facilities that participate in the Medicare or Medicaid programs be fully vaccinated. This provision applies to 76,000 healthcare facilities and more than 17 million healthcare employees. Grothman railed against the policies and said that some people “have good reasons not to take the vaccine”: My office has received many calls from people objecting to the OSHA rules, to the related CMS rules related to employees of hospitals.

    (CNN)Scientists have found SARS-CoV-2 spreads like, well, a virus among white-tailed deer and other wild animals in the United States.People are the likely source, but that doesn't mean the virus can't evolve among these animals and then spill back into humans, and researchers are worried about what this spread means for the risk of future pandemics. There's little doubt SARS-Cov-2, the virus that caused the ongoing pandemic, came from an animal -- almost certainly a bat. And the prevailing scientific opinion is that there as an intermediate host, an animal of some sort, that was infected by a bat or bats and then infected people. An Oregon mink farm has reported a Covid-19 outbreakIt's also clear that people can infect animals. Pets such as cats, zoo animals such as gorillas and snow leopards and farmed mink can all be infected. Multiple cases have been reported, and evidence of changes in the viruses infecting mink have led to mass culls of those animals on fur farms.The latest species to capture the attention of wildlife biologists are white-tailed deer.

    An ex-member of the QAnon 'cult' that flocked to Dallas to 'see JFK Jr. come back to life' has lifted the lid on the 'ugly' reality of the 'resurrection' - claiming that followers nearly bankrupted themselves to be a part of the gathering, where kids and elderly people were left sleeping on the ground for hours while their self-appointed leader paraded around acting 'like Jesus Christ'.  Devoted QAnon follower Maureen McNamara was one of hundreds of conspiracy theorists who traveled to Texas earlier this month to gather at the spot where John F. Kennedy was killed in 1963 under the instruction of a man named Michael Brian Protzman, who predicted that the former President's son, JFK Jr., was going to be resurrected.  According to Protzman, the late JFK Jr. - who died in a plane crash in 1999 - was going to come back to life at 12:29pm, the same time that his father was killed, on November 2 and then announce plans to run for Vice President in 2024 alongside Donald Trump.  Q members flew from all around the world and...

    The lieutenant governor-elect added, "And they're tired of politicians who won't let the wounds of the past heal." "In case you haven't noticed, I am black and I have been black all my life," Winsome proclaimed. "But that's not what this is about." She continued to drive home her point with an analogy, "Sometimes what happens to you isn't because you're black or because you're a woman, it's simply life. I mean, some days you're the pigeon and some days you're the statute. It's just life. We need to wake up." Winsome exclaimed that she just wants to serve.

    Real Time host Bill Maher slammed the 'level of hate' Americans have for each other, saying he believes in a 'colorblind' society and criticized the idea of secession. Maher pulled a quote from Pennsylvania Republican representative Scott Perry who told people to 'go fight' Democrats, who he claimed are the 'opposite of everything you believe in.' He was referring to the Build Back Better infrastructure bill in Congress and the political divide.   'I read this not because it's remarkable, but it's typical,' the liberal Real Time host said regarding Perry's quote on Friday's show. 'This is the rhetoric - we never used to do this in America. Yes, the parties were at each other's throats, but they never said they're the opposition of everything you love and believe in.'  Maher, 65, suggested the long-term strategy was to stop the hate. 'We have to stop this level of hate,' he said, and questioned: 'Why do they [Republicans] hate us [Democrats]?'   Second panelist and Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, 61, blamed former President Donald Trump for creating a divide that taught that the 'reason why...
    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) responded to a question on what the administration or Congress should do on gas prices by stating that “It isn’t really that you have to reduce the gas price, what you have to do is reduce the costs for families” and that reducing cost “doesn’t have to be through lowering gas prices. That’s what I’m saying with Build Back Better. If we lower costs, that’s what a family is looking at.” Jayapal said that her constituents “are not talking about inflation, by the way. They’re talking about, hey, I don’t have enough money in my budget to pay for the things I need to pay for. And the reason I say it that way is because it’s really important to understand that if you’re on a fixed budget, as many people are, as I have been in my life, then what you’re always trying to do is balance what you have to spend with what you have in that budget. The way that we can...
    Health officials in Germany are warning young people not to get the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine due to the risk of rare heart inflammation. The German Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) said on Wednesday that people under age 30 who receive the Moderna jab are at an increased risk of developing myocarditis, and instead recommend opting for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The same recommendation was made for pregnant women in Germany as well. Data from the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI), a German medical regulator body, shows the increased risk of heart inflammation is more than doubled among Moderna recipients. Germany is now the seventh European nation to take this type of action due to concerns about the jab's side effects in young adults. Germany's advisory committee has recommended people under age 30 not get the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine (pictured), and instead opt for the Pfizer jab.

    Tom Ford said that cancel culture 'inhibits design' because 'everything is now considered appropriation' and designers can no longer 'celebrate other cultures'. The 60-year-old fashion icon said on the phenomenon: 'Cancel culture inhibits design because rather than feeling free, the tendency is to start locked into a set of rules. Everything is now considered appropriation. We used to be able to celebrate other cultures. Now you can’t do that.' He also blamed social media for making designs look 'increasingly cartoonish,' according to The Guardian.   'Instagram has broken down the rules. People dress up to take pictures of themselves to post online, everything is exaggerated - especially the eyebrow,' Ford told the news site.  He recalled a time when celebrities took 'bigger risks' because they didn't have stylists in their ears admitted that he missed it.  Tom Ford (pictured at the 2021 Met Gala), 60, said cancel culture has caused designers to 'lock into a set of rules,' and is nostalgic about the times when celebrities would 'take more risks' Texas-born Ford has dressed Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez (pictured together at the CFDA...
    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany holds a press briefing at the White House in Washington, July 6, 2020.Kevin Lamarque | Reuters The House committee probing the Jan. 6 Capitol riot on Tuesday subpoenaed former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and other ex-White House officials to testify in the investigation. In addition to McEnany, ex-officials issued subpoenas include ex-White House senior advisor Stephen Miller, former White House personnel director John McEntee, former deputy chief of staff Christopher Liddell, and ex-Vice President Mike Pence's national security advisor Keith Kellogg. The latest round of subpoenas came a day after the same panel issued subpoenas to six top allies of former President Donald Trump. Monday's subpoenas were issued to former national security advisor Michael Flynn, ex-Trump campaign advisor Jason Miller, and the lawyer John Eastman, who wrote a controversial memo arguing that then-Vice President Mike Pence had the power to reject the Electoral College victory of Joe Biden during a joint session of Congress on Jan. 6. Other people who received subpoenas Monday were Bill Stepien, who managed Trump's failed re-election...
    (CNN)Two months ago, Denmark was riding high. The European nation lifted all remaining domestic coronavirus restrictions as the government declared Covid-19 was no longer "an illness which is a critical threat to society."With a successful vaccine rollout in their back pocket, Danes essentially returned to pre-pandemic daily life. They visited nightclubs and restaurants without showing a "Covid passport," used public transport without having to wear a mask and met in large numbers without restrictions.The optimism of mid-September has been short-lived.Denmark, like many countries across Europe, is now considering whether to reinstate restrictions as the continent battles a surge of Covid-19 cases that has pushed the region back into the epicenter of the pandemic.Large swathes of Europe are battling to beat back surges of the Delta variant amid the relaxation of restrictions and stuttering vaccine rollouts in some countries, with the WHO warning half a million Europeans could die of Covid-19 in a potentially devastating winter.Read MoreIn the space of a few months, Europe's Covid-19 fortunes have shifting dramatically.

The crowd at the Friday night show in Houston was so packed that when audience members were pushed toward the stage, some told CNN that they were crushed to the point where they couldn't breathe and passed out.

The 26-year-old Latin Grammy award-winning artist was on her way to perform at a concert in the Minas Gerais city of Caratinga when the small plane plummeted to the ground.  Mendonça, her uncle uncle and advisor Abicelí Silveira Dias, producer Henrique Ribeiro, pilot Geraldo Medeiroa Junior, 56, and co-pilot Tarciso Pessoa Viana, 37, were all declared dead at the scene.

As we are used to planes passing by, I just though, wow it's too low. This plane is flying too low. I looked up, then it's already spinning, spinning, spinning, and boom, it fell.' A caretaker at the same residence told the outlet that he was...

    A DERMATOLOGIST has revealed TikTok skincare trends you should avoid at all costs. TikTok is home to millions of hacks and tips, some of which can be dangerous. 1Got a spot or mole? A dermatologist urges caution over how you remove itCredit: Alamy Dr Muneeb Shah, a dermatologist from North Carolina, commonly warns his 11 million followers of the ones that could destroy your skin - and even harm your health. It includes DIY mole removal, or allowing anyone other than a doctor to treat skin lesions. Moles that change in shape, colour, size or are completely new could be the first signal of skin cancer. Reacting to a video in which a barber is removing a client’s mole, Dr Shah said: “You should never allow your barber to remove a skin lesion without a proper evaluation by a physician. “We would evalue it, remove it under clean conditions and then send it off to a lab to look at it under a microscope. “This is how you would remove the surface of skin cancer without the roots, and the...

    Demonstrators rally against anti-abortion and voter suppression laws at the Texas State Capitol on Oct. 2, 2021 in Austin, Texas. by Ray Levy Uyeda This story was originally published at Prism. In just two months, Texas lawmakers have put challenges to landmark civil rights protections that threaten to upend the groundwork hard-won by generations of activists. The first is an upsetting rebuke to the 1973 Supreme Court ruling Roe v. Wade: Texas Senate Bill 8, which bans abortion after six weeks of pregnancy and deputizes individuals to bring civil suits against anyone who helps a patient obtain an abortion after that period of time. The latest challenge is a letter written by Texas state Rep. James White to Attorney General Ken Paxton, which seeks to clarify whether individuals are legally required to abide by another SCOTUS ruling, Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized marriage for same-sex couples. “The State of Texas has not amended or repealed its marriage laws in response to Obergefell v. Hodges,” White wrote to Paxton. “And the Supreme Court has no power to...
    Shuttered firehouses, delayed trash pickups and fewer police officers and ambulances on the streets could soon become a reality in New York City as there are now only hours left for municipal workers there to comply with a coronavirus vaccine mandate.  Thousands of the workers have until 5 p.m. Friday to show proof they’ve gotten at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Those who don’t get on board will be placed on unpaid leave starting Monday – a scenario that has labor unions warning of staffing shortages.  "My job is to keep people safe — my employees, and 8.8 million people," Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a virtual news briefing on Thursday. "And until we defeat COVID, people are not safe. If we don’t stop COVID, New Yorkers will die."  Firefighters rally Thursday outside Mayor Bill De Blasio's residence of Gracie Mansion to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandate for city workers. The city is bracing for a worker shortage as tens of thousands of municipal employees remain unvaccinated.  (AP Photo/Jeenah Moon) NYC FIREFIGHTERS PROTEST VACCINE MANDATES OUTSIDE GRACIE MANSION, DE BLASIO’S...

Many people have the illness without realising it as some of the symptoms don't usually make you unwell. 1Experts say you should pay close attention to your hands as they could help you spot type 2 diabetes Type 2 diabetes develops when the insulin-producing cells in the body are unable to produce enough insulin - it can also be triggered when the insulin that is produced doesn’t work properly It might seem like a strange place to have symptoms, but your hands could actually be a key indicator in diagnosing type 2 diabetes.

    To say the 2021 mayoral race in Connecticut's second-largest city, Stamford, has been like no other would be the ultimate of understatements. For starters, the Democratic nominee, State Rep. Caroline Simmons, defeated two-term incumbent David Martin after mounting a rare primary challenge. Then came the bombshell announcement by charismatic and at times flamboyant Major League Baseball legend and lifelong city resident Bobby Valentine that he was entering the race as an "Unaffiliated" candidate - and not as a Republican, Democrat, or even as an Independent. But wait, there's more. The race quickly became one that has drawn interest and intrigue nationally and seen perhaps one of the rarest of rarities in a mayoral election: Each of the candidates has been endorsed by a past US president.  The 71-year-old Valentine is being supported by George W. Bush, who was managing partner of the Texas Rangers when Valentine served as the team's manager from 1985 to 1992. Bush was elected president in 2000. Not to be outdone, Simmons, age 35, posted this tweet on Thursday, Oct. 21, announcing she's been officially endorsed by...
    As of this year, one in four Americans — nearly 45 million people — have student debt, and U.S. college students and graduates collectively hold over $1.7 trillion in student loan debt. In Minnesota, 900,000 people carry student loan debt, owing an average of $31,250 in federal and private student debt.  With these numbers, it’s no surprise that canceling student debt has become a calling card for Democrats; during his 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden promised to cancel $10,000 in student debt per borrower once he became president.  That hasn’t happened, though Biden did extend a moratorium on student loan payments during the COVID-19 pandemic, forgave billions of dollars in federal student loans and committed to improving public service loan forgiveness programs. Beyond that, Biden has said that he thinks Congress, not the president, has the power to totally cancel student debt. These actions and promises have not been enough for some progressive lawmakers, however, including Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District Rep. Ilhan Omar. Earlier this month, Omar joined several other progressive lawmakers in sending a letter to President Biden and Education...
    ALTHOUGH we're always sad to return home after a holiday, we have to admit - there's nothing quite like curling up on your own sofa with a cup of tea in hand. But once Claire Goodall and Michael Ashfield are done with a place, they simply move onto the next. 5Claire formerly worked in a hospital before setting up her house-sitting businessCredit: Caters 5The couple moved out of their Surrey flat five years agoCredit: Caters Confused? Well, the couple are professional house and pet-sitters - and claim to save a whopping £1,000 a month by staying in their clients' homes. Five years ago, Claire, 31, and Michael, 36, quit their traditional nine-to-five jobs and moved out of their flat in Surrey to travel the world. After two years of globetrotting, the jet-setting pair decided to return to the UK - but still wanted the freedom to travel the country and pack up at a moment's notice. Claire said: "We house sit full-time. We usually tend to spend a week in each place but occasionally we are somewhere for a longer...
    Elon Musk has slammed President Joe Biden’s plan to tax billionaires’ income to pay for his proposed spending bill as the Tesla CEO saw his company’s value top $1trillion and his personal wealth increase by a single-day record of $36billion. Musk took to Twitter on Monday and responded to a tweet that was critical of the Democrats’ idea for a new billionaires’ tax to help pay for Biden’s social services and climate change plan. The world’s richest man predicted that the Democrats’ plan to tax the wealthy will eventually expand to include new levies on middle class Americans. ‘Eventually, they run out of other people’s money and then they come for you,’ Musk tweeted. Earlier this year, it was revealed that Musk and his rival, Jeff Bezos, have in recent years paid nothing in federal income tax. Musk's wealth grew an estimated $13.9billion between 2014 and 2018.  He reported $1.52billion in total income and paid $455million in taxes. It equates to a 3.27 percent true tax rate.  In 2018, Musk paid no federal income tax. The records show he paid...
    Alec Baldwin is “canceling other projects,” and was “inconsolable for hours,” after the prop gun he was holding killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza — according to a report by People. “He was hysterical and absolutely inconsolable for hours,” a source told People of Baldwin after Hutchins’ death. “Everyone knows this was an accident, but he’s absolutely devastated.” The source added that the 63-year-old actor “is canceling other projects,” and is looking “to take some time to himself and re-center himself.” “This was pretty devastating,” the source continued. “This is how he handles difficult times. Whenever something bad happens, in the short term, he removes himself from [the] public eye.” “[Baldwin] is someone who really deeply cares, so he can be very hard on himself,” the source added. “That’s true in general, in situations nowhere near as serious as this. But in this situation, it’s a whole other level because of the loss of life involved.” The source told People “it’s going to take him time to figure all this out,” adding that Baldwin “needs to take a while to himself, to...
    CLARENDON HILLS, Ill. (WLS) -- Ian's Place, a community for parents who are trying to cope with the loss of a child, opened in Clarendon Hills last week.Rebecca and Andy Wells lost their son, Ian, on Aug. 1, 2019. Their months, and even year, after their loss were a blur. Because there was no real playbook or road map for how to grieve a child's death, they wanted to create a community to listen and share."It's a community of people who share some of the same experiences, unfortunately, and it's almost an immediate bond," Andy said. "It's a club it's tough to be in but unfortunately, there's a need and we want to help it be uplifting to those who need it and give them a sense of comfort and hope."The mission through Ian's Place is healing through hope, where attendees find loving arms and people that understand their journey."Some people like to be in big groups. Some people are not ready for that," Rebecca said. "We want people to know that there's hope. They will find happiness again in...
