    DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been together for 15 years. Over the last couple of them, he has grown distant. Jeanne Phillips  We were living with family for nearly 10 years. At the beginning of the year, we finally got a place of our own, but nothing has changed. He likes to drink his beer after work. I have asked him not to, but he does it anyway.

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Many leaders saying many things about many topics that matter to them, to their regions, to the world: That’s what the U.N. General Assembly invariably produces each year. And each year, certain voices dominate. Here, The Associated Press takes the opposite approach and spotlights some thoughts — delivered in pre-recorded speeches or from the rostrum at the United Nations after a yearlong pandemic break — from leaders who might have not captured the headlines and airtime on Wednesday, the second day of the 2021 debate. ___ “We see more and more security crises arising in different parts of our planet. In an interdependent world, their aftershocks can be felt across the globe.” — Maia Sandu, president of Moldova ___ “If you pollute the planet that we all call home, it is only right that you should pay to clean it up.” — Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera, president of and minister of defense for Malawi ___ “With the ongoing crisis caused by the pandemic of COVID-19, we have often reflected and pointed out that it...
    The family of missing woman Gabby Petito responded Friday night after news emerged that the family of her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, claimed they haven’t seen him since Tuesday. "All of Gabby’s family want the world to know that Brian is not missing, he is hiding. Gabby is missing," the law office of Richard B. Stafford, attorney for the Petito and Schmidt families, said in a statement.  "Brian is not missing, he is hiding.

    U.S. Marine Sgt. Nicole Gee loved her job. She said so herself in an Aug. 9 Instagram post alongside a photo of her holding a small child in Kabul amid the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, just days before the U.S. military was set to end its two-decade presence. “Escorting evacuees onto the bird,” the 23-year-old from Sacramento, California wrote in another Instagram post at the Hamid Karzai International Airport, where dozens of people can be seen boarding a plane. But on Thursday, Gee’s job cost her her life, alongside a dozen other U.S. service members, when a suicide bomber detonated himself outside the airport’s gates. Several of her friends told The Daily Beast they were devastated but not surprised to learn Gee died trying to help people, doing the job she loved most. “She was a badass,” Lance Cpl. Joyner Seaman, who trained with Gee in 2018 at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, told The Daily Beast. “She would outrun and outperform most male Marines in the physical categories during our training.” “She was truly a...

    The director of a new Anthony Bourdain documentary admits he used artificial intelligence and computer algorithms to get the late food personality to utter things he never said on the record.   Bourdain, who killed himself in a Paris hotel suite in June 2018,  is the subject of the new documentary, Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain. It features the prolific author, chef and TV host in his own words—taken from television and radio appearances, podcasts, and audiobooks. But, in a few instances, filmmaker Morgan Neville says he used some technological tricks to put words in Bourdain's mouth. As The New Yorker's Helen Rosner reported, in the second half of the film,  L.A. artist David Choe reads from an email Bourdain sent him: 'Dude, this is a crazy thing to ask, but I'm curious...' Then the voice reciting the email shifts—suddenly it's Bourdain's, declaring, '. . . and my life is sort of s**t now. You are successful, and I am successful, and I'm wondering: Are you happy?' Rosner asked Neville, who also directed the 2018 Mr. Rogers documentary, Won't You...

    Former Pope Benedict XVI warned in a 2004 memo that high profile politicians who persist in their public support for abortion should be denied Communion. “Regarding the grave sin of abortion or euthanasia, when a person’s formal cooperation becomes manifest (understood, in the case of a Catholic politician, as his consistently campaigning and voting for permissive abortion and euthanasia laws), his Pastor should meet with him, instructing him about the Church’s teaching, informing him that he is not to present himself for Holy Communion until he brings to an end the objective situation of sin, and warning him that he will otherwise be denied the Eucharist,” former Pope Benedict wrote in 2004.  If the “person in question” obstinately persists in presenting himself to receive communion even after all this, Benedict wrote, the minister “must refuse to distribute it.” Former Pope Benedict XVI warned in a 2004 memo that high profile politicians who persist in their public support for abortion should be denied Communion.

    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) doubled down on her controversial comments comparing Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to the Nazis because of her mask rules for the House, telling a local Arizona reporter that she had said nothing wrong, and “any rational Jewish person should also oppose “what’s happening with overbearing mask mandates.” On a Thursday Newsmax appearance, Greene criticized Pelosi for “running a tyrannical, oppressive workplace,” and then made the Nazi comparison: This woman is mentally ill. You know, we can look back in a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star and they were definitely treated like second class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany. And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about. Bianca Buono, a reporter with Arizona’s 12 News, spoke to Greene after the event she held in Mesa, Az. with Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), and asked her if she stood by her comments “comparing mask mandates to the Holocaust.” “No one should be...

    California candidate Caitlyn Jenner, who stunned entertainment and political news alike by coming out against biological men in women’s sports last week, formerly said that every transgender person should have an opportunity to compete in sports. “I think every trans person, if they’re into athletics, should have an opportunity to compete and to improve themselves,” Jenner said in 2020. “I think sports is such a great way to learn a lot about yourself. And yeah, I want to, hopefully they’ll have the opportunity in the future to do whatever they can do. I’m all for it. I’m all for it.” The Olympic gold medalist, TV personality and transgender rights activist’s former comments do not directly conflict with the statements that Jenner made last week, but they have prompted transgender activists to accuse Jenner of hypocrisy.

    Over the course of several weeks, Meghan Markle’s former "Suits" co-stars have defended the former American actress against bullying allegations made by Kensington Palace staff during her time as a working royal.  Days before Markle, 39, and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Times of London alleged that the Duchess of Sussex faced a bullying complaint made by one of her close advisers, which Markle’s team has strongly denied. Following the reports, a number of Markle’s co-workers from the hit USA Network series issued a wealth of praise about Markle in response to the Palace’s allegations.

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: On a walk with friends, along with other people I didn’t know, a person in the group described someone as being “deaf and dumb.” I think that description is derogatory to those not able to hear and/or speak. Not knowing the person who had spoken, I wasn’t sure if I should speak up, and I admit I remained quiet. Would  I have been rude to correct a stranger? Interestingly, I was watching an old crime show rerun, and the criminal evading arrest was described as “deaf and dumb.” Apparently even on television, the term was acceptable. It is doubtful I will see this woman again. Did I miss an opportunity to educate someone? The description of a person with such a condition was, in my opinion, inappropriate, disrespectful and derogatory. Hopefully, if the person had been in her presence, he or she wouldn’t have known what was being said.

    CNN’s Van Jones celebrated the new tenor of the Biden administration’s relationship with the White House press corps, by fawning over the basic back-and-forth between the two. On Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki held the Biden administration’s inaugural briefing and discussed a number of topics, including the “potentially divisive” impeachment trial of the 45th president. Anchor Anderson Cooper asked for Jones to reflect on what he’d seen in the first hours of the Biden White House — and Jones didn’t hold back in praising the very ordinariness of it all. “It’s just mesmerizing to watch a functional government doing functional government type things,” Jones said, before lapsing into a literal description of a normal press briefing. “I mean, just a press conference and a human and the person said words and the words made sense and then somebody asked a question and then the person answered the question and you’re just crying, just ‘Oh my god!'” Jones’ over-the-top response to Psaki’s run-of-the-mill presser evoked the Trump administration’s initial, combative briefing in 2017, where then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer set the tone for the next...
    CNN anchor Don Lemon doubled down on his demonization of all Trump supporters following last week's riot at the Capitol. Lemon was widely condemned Wednesday night after he argued that it's valid to associate everyone who voted for President Trump with neo-Nazis and members of the Klu Klux Klan who also say they support him.  "If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers ... You voted on that side, and the people in Washington are continuing to vote on that side," Lemon explained to his colleague Chris Cuomo.  CNN'S DON LEMON: TRUMP VOTERS ARE ON THE SIDE OF KLANSMEN, NAZIS AND CAPITOL RIOTERS Lemon remained unapologetic Thursay night.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. and Russian negotiators have agreed in principle to continue freezing their nuclear warhead stockpiles in a bid to salvage their last remaining arms control pact before it expires next year, a person familiar with the talks said Friday. The person said it’s not yet clear if the agreement for a freeze will succeed or translate into an extension of the New START treaty that expires in February.

    (CNN)No journalist this side of Sean Hannity has spent more time talking to President Donald Trump over the past year than Bob Woodard.Between early December 2019 and mid-August 2020, the legendary Washington Post reporter did 18 interviews with Trump for his book "Rage," which came out earlier this week. All told, Woodward spent nearly 10 hours interviewing Trump since just last December.What that amount of time means is that when Woodward offers an assessment of Trump, we should listen. Which is what he did Tuesday night in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper. Asked by Cooper about Trump's claim that he had read "Rage" from cover to cover in a single night, Woodward responded this way (bolding is mine):"And he said, it's very boring."And then the anchor on Fox News -- thank you -- asked him: 'Is it accurate?' And you know what the President said? Read More"I mean, I want to be accurate here. He said: 'It's OK. I mean, it's fine.' And he'd been out saying it's a political hit job and all of these things.

    The University of Connecticut senior accused of two murders also held another person captive inside his home for nearly 24 hours and told that person that he “just flipped” before the killings, according to a warrant unsealed Monday. The court document also reveals that a woman said she stopped seeing Peter Manfredonia about four days before he went on his violent spree and led police on a multi-state manhunt. Manfredonia, 23, is being held on $7 million bond on charges he killed 62-year-old Theodore DeMers with a samurai sword in Willington on May 22, and fatally shot a high school acquaintance two days later. DeMers was found by his neighbors with a severed right hand, the flesh of his tricep almost completely split from his body, a left thumb and index finger chopped off and multiple lacerations on his head and back, NBC News reported.

    Job seekers and hiring managers are mostly OK with the virtual job-interview process foisted upon them by the COVID-19 pandemic — so much so, many plan to continue the process once the crisis is over. According to a new study by Zenefits, 58% of hiring managers say they plan to keep conducting virtual interviews even after COVID-19 precautions are lifted. The survey interviewed 1,018 people, 810 of whom were employees, and 208 who said they were hiring managers. A total of 77% said they had a positive experience if they had a virtual interview, though slightly more (50.8%) said an in-person interview made them feel more confident. Still, virtual interviews also made them feel less stressed, though in-person interviews made them more-comfortable negotiating a salary. Many still prefer the virtual method for now, however. More than one-third of respondents said they will not attend an in-person interview until all COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted. That said, 86% still would attend in-person if it meant getting their dream job or a higher salary. But even during those in-person interviews during a...

    A small fire in an East Oakland homeless encampment killed a person Sunday afternoon, fire officials said. Authorities did not immediately identify the person, whose body was found amid the debris from a blaze that required two engines, Battalion Chief Jame Bowron of the Oakland Fire Department said. The fire happened around 2 p.m. in the area of 42nd Avenue and International Boulevard. Fire crews put out the blaze and were doing the overhaul from it when they found the person, Bowron said.

    SACRAMENTO (AP) – A former police officer who terrorized California as a serial burglar and rapist and went on to kill more than a dozen people while evading capture for decades pleaded guilty Monday to murders attributed to a criminal dubbed the Golden State Killer. Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. had remained almost silent in court since his 2018 arrest until he uttered the word “guilty” in a hushed and raspy voice multiple times in a plea agreement that will spare him the death penalty for a life sentence with no chance of parole. DeAngelo, 74, has never publicly acknowledged the killings, but offered up a confession of sorts after his arrest that cryptically referred to an inner personality named “Jerry” that had apparently forced him to commit the wave of crimes that ended abruptly in 1986.

    NEW JERSEY (WABC) -- The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission reopened Monday for student driver tests and inspections only, after in-person transactions were delayed until July 7 due to a problem with a new text message system that's intended to prevent overcrowding.It appeared there was some confusion over the delay, however, as police warned of traffic issues at the MVC in Lodi and advised drivers lined for for any reason other than driver road testing and inspections to please leave the area."We intended to rely on our new text notification system to check people in, then allow them to leave the building and go elsewhere," Chief Administrator Sue Fulton said in a statement. "Unfortunately, this new system requires further testing, so we will not be able to open as fully as we anticipated on June 29. Without the text notification system, the number of people waiting for transactions who will need to be on site will far exceed capacity limitations. We have said that the health and safety of our customers and employees is our first priority; therefore, we cannot...
    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Some 3,450 criminal cases where a court ruling was chiefly based on DNA evidence will be reviewed, Denmark’s top prosecutor said Monday after a retest showed that a person convicted of burglarly likely was innocent. “We are protectively looking if to see if there are other, similar cases,” Director of Public Prosecutions Jan Reckendorff said. The cases to be reviewed are those since October 2011. Officials said the problem occurred because the system used to analyze DNA taken from a person is different from the one used to analyze a crime scene. As a result, they could not be reliably compared. Officials found a case where a person was convicted of burglary, using DNA, among other things, as evidence. A later analysis showed that the convicted person was probably innocent, Reckendorff said in a statement. He said it was not possible to predict when final decisions can be made in all the cases, nor did he say which cases should be reviewed. Forensics can use DNA from blood, semen, skin, saliva or hair found at a...
    Inspired by Khloe Kardashian, I asked influencers to edit my selfies. Influencers Sia Cooper, Urszula Makowska, and Laura Arumugam adjusted my pictures so they would look like something they would see on their Instagram feed. I also tried out editing app FaceTune on one selfie, and it ended up being my most-liked photo on Instagram ever. Editing can be fun, but it's also a slippery slope. If you rely too much on apps like FaceTune, you might end up just living a lie, which is detrimental to our body image and self-esteem. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. About four weeks ago, Khloe Kardashian posted a series of selfies that everyone completely lost their minds over. "Location: under b----es skiiiinnnnn," she wrote in the caption underneath three pictures where she looked like an entirely different person. A plastic surgeon told Insider it looked like she could have had a nose job, filler injections, and fat removal in her face to make such dramatic changes. But it could also just be editing apps like FaceTune, which have gotten so...
