    For almost 30 years the argument has raged ceaselessly back and forth around some of the smartest dinner tables in the land: Who really broke their vows first? Was it her husband's adulterous behaviour that drove the lonely and vulnerable Princess Diana to seek solace in the arms of another man?  Or was Prince Charles, confronted with evidence of his wife's cheating, emboldened into resuming his long-standing love affair with Camilla Parker Bowles? Diana herself couldn't have been clearer in her notorious Panorama interview when she said of her love rival: 'Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.' Her bulimia and self-harming, she said, were consequences of the prince's infidelity. And in recent times, millions of viewers of the Netflix series The Crown have been presented with this version of events as definitive: that Charles was the first to be unfaithful. But yesterday an unexpected voice entered the fray — one the public have never heard from before — to offer an entirely different narrative.  For almost 30 years the argument has...
    A FAMILY are being left homeless at Christmas after a IT bungle led to their house-buying chain collapsing. Katrina Crowson has been left devestated that her one-year-old son will be homeless for his first Christmas after a cyber security breach at Premier Property Lawyers delayed their purchase of a house in Newark, Notts. 2The gutted family will have nowhere to go from Monday morningCredit: BPM The mum, her toddler and her husband will not have a home from Monday and were set to complete the purchase on November 12, but were told on Tuesday that the sellers above them in the chain had pulled out due to the wait. The family had already put in their notice for their current rental property because they believed that they would be moving into their new home. Ms Crowson, 38, claims that they have still not received their deposit back and have no relatives or friends that they could stay with, and it is “too short notice” to rent somewhere else. Speaking to Nottinghamshire Live the social worker said: “We’re basically going to have...
    IMAGINE going on a first date and your potential partner suddenly exposed themself to you. Most women would gasp in horror and bolt for the door — probably giving the creep a cold shower of Pinot Grigio for good measure. 4Cyberflashing is the sending of unwanted explicit pictures, be it on a dating site, social media, or even shared to your phone by a stranger sitting opposite you on a trainCredit: Getty While thankfully rare in real life, seedy situations like this are par for the course online for an increasing number of women. Cyberflashing is the sending of unwanted explicit pictures, be it on a dating site, social media, or even shared to your phone by a stranger sitting opposite you on a train. And it’s experienced by women of all ages. A shocking four in ten women aged 18-34 have been sent an unsolicited sexual photo according to YouGov research. For 35 to 49-year-olds, that figure is two in ten and for women aged 50-64, it is one in ten. Lorna McCann, 57, has been sent so many...
    BRITAIN is facing a big, fat problem. We are the heaviest nation in western Europe, with close to two thirds of us ­currently overweight. 4Childhood obesity rocketed by a whopping 45 per cent in lockdownCredit: Shutterstock 4I’ve been fighting with my body weight for the past 30 years — it’s a constant battle every dayCredit: Rex Now we learn that childhood obesity rocketed by a whopping 45 per cent in lockdown. It’s hardly surprising the NHS wants to act — and yesterday it unveiled radical plans to tackle the issue across England. Parents of obese children will be urged to attend sessions with dietitians, psychologists and specialist nurses. In some cases, parents will be given their own food plans and told to diet alongside their children. It might sound like a typical “nanny state” response but I wholeheartedly believe the NHS has to do something. Obesity in childhood has been linked to multiple health problems in later life.

    Sugar is bad news for health — on this most would agree. But when it comes to fat, there has been real and sometimes acrimonious debate. For decades we have been warned that eating too much dairy such as milk, butter and cheese could raise our risk of serious conditions such as heart disease and strokes — only for more recent studies to suggest they might actually protect us from these by lowering our risk of developing high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes. So where does the truth lie — and why can’t the scientists agree? The key reason dairy products are considered bad for us is their high saturated fat content. Although our bodies need fats for energy, growth and to absorb fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D and E, eating too much saturated fat, in particular, can raise levels of so-called ‘bad’ cholesterol in our blood.  This can clog arteries, which in turn leads to health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease and strokes. For decades we have been warned that eating too much dairy...
    A RACING driver and his partner struggled for six years to get pregnant - not knowing a simple test could have revealed he had fertility problems. They had two failed rounds of IVF and left doctors baffled before Toby Trice was diagnosed. 3Toby Trice and Katie Housley are finally expecting after wanting a baby for many years Now, expecting a little boy just before Christmas, Toby and Katie Housley want a change in male fertility testing to “stop other couples going through the same trauma”.    They first started trying for a baby in their early 20s but had almost given up hope, until a racing sponsor from the pharmaceutical industry suggested trying the progressive male testing.  Toby, who juggles his day job as a train driver with his career leading the Ginetta GT Academy, discovered he had sperm DNA fragmentation caused by varicocele – or an enlarged vein in the scrotum.   Once he knew this, he realised it could be treated and their dreams of becoming a parent could come true. “We’ve gone through six years of treatment and two...
    The Michigan State running back may still be trailing Alabama’s Bryce Young and Ole Miss’ Matt Corral, but his candidacy now has something the SEC passers can’t match. If — or more specifically when, in the age of Name, Image and Likeness — college football takes the full plunge into NFTs, there shouldn’t be a more valuable asset or a hotter commodity than the Heisman Moment. Think Desmond Howard striking the pose in 1991 vs. Ohio State; Reggie Bush’s ankle-breaking touchdown run in 2005; Sam Bradford flipping into the end zone against Oklahoma State in 2008; Johnny Manziel scrambling and shaking his way through Alabama’s defense in 2012; and, last season, DeVonta Smith’s ridiculous one-handed catch against LSU.Kenneth Walker III’s performance against Michigan could end up joining the marketplace.The Michigan State running back rolled to 197 yards and five touchdowns on 23 carries in the 37-33 win, the biggest and clearest statement anyone in this trophy race has delivered as we enter the last full month of the season. Here’s how monstrous — and in the last 21 years, how...

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg stressed the importance of Congress passing new infrastructure and social spending bills, and expressed optimism that it may finally happen after much delay. House Democrats have been battling internally over bipartisan infrastructure legislation, as progressives have persistently demanded that they also pass a massive social spending bill that has been the subject of much negotiation. According to Buttigieg, both could happen very soon. BIDEN SPENDING BILL LEAVES DEMS AND GOP FRUSTRATED "What I know is we’re the closest that we’ve ever been and it looks like we’re teed up to take major action soon," Buttigieg said. The social spending package, once valued at $3.5 trillion, is now down to a leaner $1.75 trillion after progressives and moderates agreed to cut programs including universal community college and paid family leave. That bill only requires a simple majority to pass in the Senate because it would be done through a process known as budget reconciliation, but moderate Democratic Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona have said they still will not support it. Buttigieg...
    IT can feel like you're always cleaning your house - but is all that hard graft actually worth it if you're accidentally making any of these common mistakes? A whopping 72 per cent of Brits have been making the same mistake when cleaning a new study has revealed - by not leaving cleaning products on a surface for the time specified. 4Here, Specialist Cleaner Lily Cameron reveals some of the biggest mistakes people make, and what you can do to rectify them Alan Wakeling, founder of Hydrus Hygiene, says: "By applying disinfectant and then wiping straight away, nine times out of 10 all that you are doing is spreading bacteria.

    On this day 150 years ago, a largely white mob of hundreds descended upon what’s now downtown Los Angeles and indiscriminately began beating, shooting and hanging any Chinese person they saw. The 1871 Los Angeles Chinese massacre resulted in the deaths of 18 Chinese men and is believed to be the most lethal example of racial violence ever recorded in the city. It was quickly and eagerly forgotten. City leaders, embarrassed that the frontier town had made national headlines for violence and lawlessness, built up the police department and tried to restore the rule of law. Eight of the attackers were tried for the crimes but eventually released, and a small indemnity was paid to the Chinese government as an apology. Calle De Los Negros was bulldozed and redeveloped. The Chinese community was rebuilt in a different location. A century and a half later, as Asian Americans are facing a surge in racial violence prompted by the pandemic, I’m thinking about the lessons never learned from this forgotten history. The massacre was buried so deeply that...
    Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, argued on "America Reports" Monday that China’s growing missile arsenal could put American security at risk. The ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee told co-host John Roberts why he's "worried about" the sophistication of China's missiles and the lack of a U.S. defense system to counter the threat.  CHINESE NUCLEAR-CAPABLE HYPERSONIC MISSILE TEST SURPRISES US INTELLIGENCE: REPORT MICHAEL MCCAUL: This is the most advanced, most dangerous weapon system that we cannot defend ourselves from. We knew they had these missiles when they paraded them in Tiananmen Square. But, we have not seen them actually use it. It is the capability that it was able to orbit the earth and land about 25 miles away from its target, that is the most disturbing thing of all. I call it a wake-up call for the United States and our allies. It is also kind of a Sputnik moment, if you will, where we have to win this global competition against our greatest adversary communist China.

    Justice Department urges Supreme Court to suspend Texas abortion law Joe Biden, Jimmy Carter and Other Former Presidents Remember Colin Powell: Unmatched Honor and Dignity © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad After a tumultuous week, the Raiders went to Colorado and crushed the Broncos 34-24 on Sunday. The final score wasn’t quite indicative of how badly Las Vegas took it to Denver, as the Broncos added a cosmetic touchdown with just over a minute left in the contest. But one thing the Broncos couldn’t do was slow down Maxx Crosby. The Raiders’ defensive end teed off against Denver’s pass protection, recording 3.0 sacks, five total QB hits, a tackle for loss, and a pass breakup. The Raiders tallied a total of five sacks and 17 quarterback hits on Teddy Bridgewater in the win. “I feel like we’ve been rushing really well; we just haven’t finished,” Crosby said postgame, via Vinny Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Today, we finished. We got to the quarterback consistently. I can’t say enough about...
                      by Julie Kelly  George Tanios’ fiancée encouraged him to go to Washington on January 6 to hear President Trump’s speech. “You’re gonna regret it if you don’t go,” she said, hoping he could take a break from working 100-hours-a-week to run his popular sandwich shop in Morgantown, West Virginia. Tanios and I both laughed after he told me that during a two-hour interview this week. (I was in contact with his fiancée, Amanda, as she cared for their three young children while he was incarcerated for five months.) But there is nothing funny about how Joe Biden’s Justice Department is trying to ruin Tanios’ life to maintain the myth that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died at the hands of Trump supporters on January 6. Tanios, 40, was arrested in front of his five-year-old son at home on Sunday, March 14 around 9 p.m. “I was about to get in the shower and had my robe on when I heard crazy banging on my front door,” he said. “Then I...
    In order not to be seen by potential informers for the newly re-established Ministry of Virtue and Vice, we are sitting inside the front gate of the Sayedul Shuhada Boys and Girls High School. It is mid-afternoon and the barren hills that rise beyond Kabul’s 13th District radiate a pitiless glare. My companion is Fatima, aged 17. But for the events of the last few months she would be in class now, studying for her final exams that would, she had hoped, gain her a university place; the first undergraduate, male or female, in her family’s history, and the next step in her ambition to become an engineer. But this has been a year of savage blows; aimed not only at Fatima and the girls in her community, but all the females of Afghanistan. The country has witnessed numerous atrocities. But one of the worst was committed earlier this year not 100 metres from where we chat. On May 8, Isis carried out a suicide car bomb and IED attack on the school that left 90 dead and 240 wounded....
    Over two days in the summer of 1910, wildfires roared across the bone-dry forests of the inland Northwestern U.S., the Rockies, and parts of British Columbia. Whole towns burned. The blazes scorched 3 million acres of forest, an area the size of Connecticut, and left behind a legacy that profoundly changed how the U.S. managed wildfires—and ultimately how fires behave today. The Big Burn shook firefighting agencies and officials, most notably the newly formed U.S. Forest Service and its leaders. As those who had witnessed The Big Burn rose through the pre-World War II Forest Service ranks, a firm and unyielding policy rose with them: Forest fires were to be put out. All of them. By 10 a.m. the morning after they had been discovered. While not widely known outside the Forest Service, the “10 a.m. policy” is one of the most consequential environmental actions in American history. This absolutist fire suppression ideology, later publicized by Smokey Bear, has as its origin the Big Burn complex of forest fires in 1910 and its roots in 19th-century settler colonialism. The aftermath...
    (CNN)Defined by their disappearance dinosaurs might appear to be evolutionary failures. Not so. Dinosaurs survived and thrived for 165 million years -- far longer than the roughly 300,000 years modern humans have so far roamed the planet.They lived on every continent, munched on plants, snapped their jaws at insects, itched from fleas, suffered from disease, got into fights, snoozed, performed elaborate courtship rituals and looked after their young. The creatures were much more diverse -- and downright bizarre -- than what we might recall from childhood books. Were it not for an asteroid strike 66 million years ago, the ancient creatures still might have dominated our world. And they still are here, in the form of birds we see around us today.Scientists have discovered more in the past two decades than they had in the prior 200 years about how dinosaurs behaved and evolved. Here's what's new and different about what is known of dinosaurs. Read MoreHow many dinosaurs were there?The short answer: Lots. Take T. Rex, the predator with banana-sized teeth that is perhaps the best studied dinosaur. Scientists...
    Five Years and One Major Discount Later, No Man’s Sky is Finally a Worthy Purchase Report: Ryan Fitzpatrick to miss 6 to 8 weeks Sierra Teller Ornelas On Monday, the Toronto Film Festival hosted a panel of TV creators whose new and highly original series have connected with audiences and are poised to succeed, but the creators also opened up about enduring years of self-doubt and rejection. “I inundated people with terrible scripts for a long time before Feel Good,” Canadian comic Mae Martin, co-creator and co-writer of the Netflix and Channel Four series Feel Good, a semi-autobiographical comedy, told a Dialogues panel at TIFF. “It was a real learning curve to have the confidence to tell my personal story. Then, of course, that’s the thing that clicked because it was the most honest and heartfelt,” Martin added about her bittersweet romantic comedy centered on two unlikely lovers and their personal demons.

    THE HUMBLE baked bean is a staple ingredient in a full English breakfast, but one Reddit user has posed the important question of how cooked your baked beans should be. The British are besotted with baked beans and won't take any criticism of it well, but an argument not so often heard is how to cook baked beans. 2Although Brits won't debate on if they like baked beans, they will debate on how to cook themCredit: Reddit One user posted to the Subreddit, Casual UK, and created a storm in the comments over just how cooked they should be. Most people simply bung them in the microwave for a couple of minutes or put it on the stove to warm through but this user had a different idea on how to serve up beans. Starting a touchy debate, the user captioned the post: "Who else likes their beans overdone?(Cheese imminent)." Along with the post, the user attached a picture of their perfectly browned and buttered toast with some VERY cooked baked beans. The image sparked a debate on the posts...
    Good evening, my fellow Americans. I want to talk to you about where we are in the battle against COVID-19, the progress we’ve made, and the work we have left to do. And it starts with understanding this: Even as the Delta variant 19 [sic] has -- COVID-19 - has been hitting this country hard, we have the tools to combat the virus, if we can come together as a country and use those tools. If we raise our vaccination rate, protect ourselves and others with masking and expanded testing, and identify people who are infected, we can and we will turn the tide on COVID-19. It will take a lot of hard work, and it’s going to take some time. Many of us are frustrated with the nearly 80 million Americans who are still not vaccinated, even though the vaccine is safe, effective, and free. You might be confused about what is true and what is false about COVID-19. So before I outline the new steps to fight COVID-19 that I’m going to be announcing tonight, let me give...
    Microwaving food might just require more thought than one would realize. Or at least that’s what a viral TikTok video is suggesting, which shows three microwave hacks that can help ensure your quick meals are heated evenly. According to verified TikTok creator and STEM graduate Isabella Avila, home chefs can benefit from placing their dishes on the edge of a microwave plate rather than putting it in the center. GRANDMOTHER'S VIRAL DISHWASHER HACK CLAIMS TO SOLVE AN AGE-OLD PROBLEM "You know when you reheat food in the microwave and some parts of it are hot enough to burn your mouth and other the part of it is frozen," Avila said at the start of her 26-second clip, which has been viewed by more than 6.5 million people. Avila, 22, went on, "Well that happens because you shouldn’t actually have your food in the middle of the plate here. It should be on the edge so it can actually rotate and cook evenly." MOM'S CLEVER 'BACK-TO-SCHOOL SHOE SHOPPING' HACK HELPS PARENTS WHO SHOP CHILD-FREE The second quick tip Avila shared showed...

Princess Diana‘s life is coming to the big screen with the biopic Spencer, in which Kristen Stewart plays the Princess of Wales.

    President Joe Biden's national security team appears to be in damage control mode Monday morning, trying to distance the panicked scenes coming out of Afghanistan as civilians try to flee the Taliban from the US's defeated withdrawal from Vietnam in 1975. Over the last day as Taliban insurgents took over the war-torn country with alarming speed, Biden has been criticized for unequivocally denying any comparison to the fall of Saigon in early July remarks.  After a weekend at Camp David, Biden will speak to the nation on Monday afternoon from the White House following intense criticism over his silence.   'There will be no situation where you see people being lifted off the roof in the embassy to the United States from Afghanistan,' Biden had pledged. But the world watched Sunday as Chinook helicopters rushed US embassy officials to Hamid Karzai International Airport after the Taliban reached the city. 'To be fair, the helicopter has been the mode of transport from our embassy to the airport for the last 20 years,' National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan told NBC's Today. 'That's how...

But here's a hard truth from a professional cleaner. Just because you're using a disinfectant spray does...
    The Navy SEAL responsible for killing Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden reacted to the withdrawal of U.S. and NATO troops from Afghanistan on "Fox News Primetime," reflecting on his deployment to the region in 2005. "It’s one of those places Afghanistan, where if you haven’t been there, you wouldn’t believe people," Rob O'Neill said. " I mean, some of these people, not only do they not know how old they are, they don’t know what time is. It’s a different world. I have seen true poverty with children with no clothes playing in sewage. It’s up is down and down is up. We can never install Jeffersonian democracy there," he said "They don’t want it."

    Nobody likes a tight parking job. A video on TikTok went viral for suggesting a new system for how drivers should use parking spaces.

    Vice President Kamala Harris falsely claimed that "we've been to the border" when pressed on why she has not yet visited the southern border after being tasked by President Biden to handle the "root causes" of migration.  During an interview with NBC News Tuesday, Harris, who has been criticized by Republicans for not making the trip to the U.S.-Mexico border, was asked whether she had any plans to do so.  HARRIS, IN GUATEMALA, TELLS POTENTIAL MIGRANTS THEY WILL BE TURNED BACK: ‘DO NOT COME’  "I – at some point – you know – we are going to the border. We've been to the border," Harris replied. "So this whole – this whole – this whole thing about the border. We've been to the border. We've been to the border."  Harris was again pressed, with NBC’s Lester Holt reminding the vice president that she, herself, has not been to the border while in office.  "I – and I haven't been to Europe. And I mean, I don’t – I don't understand the point that you're making," Harris said, adding "I'm not...
    Laura Ingraham summarized the "facts" established this week that "show that our government…is apparently more concerned about helping the CCP than it is about protecting our national interest. LAURA INGRAHAM: I want to summarize what has been a blockbuster week -- one where we've learned a great deal about how our country really works.  This week, we have established the following facts:  Fact one:  Last night we heard a former U.S. Secretary of State -- who also headed the C-I-A -- tell us that when the Trump Administration tried to learn the truth about the origins of COVID, it faced opposition from its own career staff.   … Fact two: This week we saw e-mails from Doctor Fauci showing that he was warned about the possibility COVID leaked from a CCP-controlled lab.  Rather than trying to get to the truth about what had happened, he provided political cover for the CCP -- while at the same time maintaining close relations with his colleagues in China. And last night, Secretary Pompeo let him have it.   … Fact three:  We know, beyond any...
    A DAD joked that we’ve been using baby gates wrong all along as he shared a hack for how to get some peace when spending time with the kids. People think it's absolute genius and can't wait to try it for themselves. 1The dad uses baby gates to lock himself away and watch the footyCredit: imgur The dad shared an image of himself walled in by baby gates, watching the footy with a few drinks in front of him. Though his kids are in the room, they can’t reach their dad, as he’s penned inside the gates.  This way the dad is able to enjoy the football without having to put up with little ones grabbing his attention. The picture was reposted into Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips and Ideas and got thousands of responses. Many said they couldn’t wait to try the hack for themselves. “We may need to do this so we can eat in peace”, wrote one...
    Traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.Source: NYSE This is the daily notebook of Mike Santoli, CNBC's senior markets commentator, with ideas about trends, stocks and market statistics. Market gets a bit of relief, selling pressure abating after a straight-down few days that got the indexes a bit oversold in the short term and saw the broad benchmark bounce near its 50-day average. The morning bounces have been a bit technical and mechanical, as is often the case after a little volatility flare-up, traders testing out demand at levels that were sliced through a day earlier to see if the "nothing's really changed" crowd is there to buy the dip. So far this year, this process has played out a few times. The S&P 500's peak-to-yesterday's-low drop was 4.4%, in the middle of the four pullbacks it's had this year. Note the high from today was right in the zone (4,120s) that the bulls were hoping would hold the market up 24 hours ago. This is the typical drill, to see if former floor has...

The CDC recommends wearing a cloth face mask in public to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We've been wearing masks for over a year now, so I asked my colleagues to share their favorites. Vaccines are becoming more accessible, but masks are still key to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It's now been more than a year since the pandemic began, and the Insider Reviews team has dug into it all — including whether rental cars and Airbnbs are safe as well as where to buy groceries, toilet paper, effective hand sanitizer, EPA-registered cleaning supplies, and face masks. Although vaccines are becoming more widely available, and the CDC now states that fully vaccinated people can gather outside without masks, you will still need a mask handy when you're visiting heavily populated venues. Many businesses also still require masks indoors. Popular Reviews Best...

    A YOUNG woman has revealed how she left her childhood sweetheart after having an affair with his dad, who is 36 years her senior. Mackenzie Yocum, 25, and 61-year-old Jeff Scholl began having an affair while she engaged to his son, and they now have a five-month-old baby together - despite neither of their families speaking to them. 9Mackenzie Yocum, 25, and 61-year-old Jeff Scholl began having an affair while she engaged to his sonCredit: Mercury Walmart worker, Mackenzie, from Illinois, USA, admits she started admiring her married, soon-to-be father-in-law when her own relationship hit a rough patch.

    In this article FBFidji Simo, head of Facebook app.Photo credit: Fidji SimoThe head of Facebook's app, Fidji Simo, told CNBC that the social media giant has been working on audio for years as it prepares to launch its Clubhouse rival. Earlier this week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said his company is building a product where users can engage in real-time conversations with others, like they can on Clubhouse. Asked if Facebook looked at the success of Clubhouse before announcing its rival product, Simo told CNBC's Deirdre Bosa: "Audio has been on our mind for a very long time." Simo went on to say that the technologies used to power Facebook's Clubhouse rival, known as Live Audio Rooms, have been in development for many years. "The artificial intelligence that's required to bring these magical audio creation tools that can make you sound like you're next to a beach or near a river, or can change your voice to sound like an alien, all of that are technologies that we've been building for a very long time," she said. Another example is...
    Cincinnati (CNN)The Brent Spence Bridge, which spans the Ohio River, has long been a political football and a symbol of government dysfunction.On one of the busiest trucking routes in the United States, with more than $1 billion in freight passing across it every day, the gridlock serves as a constant reminder of unfulfilled promises in the nation's long-running infrastructure debate."It's been batted around by both parties for a long time, but the need is now," said Brad Slabaugh, general manager of Hilltop Companies, a construction firm that sits in the shadow of the bridge. "We had promises from past administrations and we would like to see those promises come through."As a new debate begins over President Joe Biden's ambitious infrastructure proposal, the Brent Spence Bridge offers a lesson for the challenges facing the administration and Congress in tackling one of the thorniest issues in Washington that touches every part of the country. Touted as a rare bipartisan opportunity, infrastructure is seldom one that has a successful outcome in a deeply divided capital. President Barack Obama speaks to a crowd...

The most recent reports as of this posting say the suspect — who was shot at after emerging from their vehicle with a knife — is dead.

    Zoom meetings have become the 'new norm' due to the coronavirus pandemic, but as people spend hours in video conference meetings many are thinking of ways to escape. With this in mind, an artist created a 'self-sabotaging' tool that lets users add disruptive sounds to their audio stream with the hopes others in the chat room will ask them to leave. Called Zoom Escaper, the free web widget offers eight different effects that stream directly through the microphone and into the meeting -but is only heard by others in the chat room. Users can choose a weeping man, an echo, crying baby, barking dogs and even the sounds of 'urination.'

    Many of us long to see our loved ones, and millions won't have had so much as a hug from a friend or family member in months — so the first thing you may want when you reunite is to embrace. Yet, in a recent poll 59 per cent of people questioned said they would no longer greet others with a kiss, a hug, or even a handshake in future, for fear of spreading germs. While such strategies may help cut the risk of catching coronavirus, science tells us a lack of physical contact may have knock-on implications for our health — and may even make us more likely to pick up infections. A survey from early last year shows how much our attitude to human contact has changed since the pandemic. Conducted between January 21 and March 30 (covering the nine weeks before, and a week into the first lockdown), it found that 72 per cent of people had a positive attitude toward touch and 43 per cent felt society was not 'touchy' enough — even before restrictions were...

    SITTING round a restaurant table in Berlin, the British man chatting easily to two women look like any other trio of pals. But Bishop Black, 36, Carmen Canela, 26 and Lina Bembe, 38, have a unique sexual relationship which they describe as a “casual throuple”. 5Bishop looking like the cat that got the cream with Carmen (left) and LinaCredit: Jam Press The three-way romance started out as a friendship but the sexual attraction was so strong that the trio hooked up and have been sharing a bed ever since. "No one was dating anyone first," explains Lina. “The three of us just happened to be friends with similar sl***y proclivities.” Unusually the throuple - who all have “fluid sexuality” - have no rules or restrictions on who can sleep with who but treat their threesome more like “friends with benefits.” "I feel good about having friends I can trust and feel intimate with the way I do with Bishop and Carmen,” says Lina. “I really hate when people try to put labels on connections that simply don’t need labels.” 5Lina,...
