    We were in a cafe a few days ago, my friend and I, when our laughter made a nearby group of teenagers turn around. ‘Ugh,’ I heard one of them whisper. ‘They’re talking about sex. At their age!’ Her expression of pained disgust left us, both sixtysomethings, in no doubt about her feelings on the subject. Our discussion, a post-mortem of my friend’s ‘night before’, had ventured into territory assumed to belong exclusively in a world inhabited by the young and beautiful. A world off limits to anyone of my advanced age. However, like it or not, a recent survey found that the optimal age for sex among single women is 66. Although, in my experience, I’d say the best sex is to be found within a long and trusting relationship whatever your age, a healthy sex drive in your 60s is really not unusual. And whatever your circumstances, I think sex at this age is absolutely great. I speak as someone who met her beloved husband — Bob, the love of my life — when I was 19. And,...
    Gentefied creators Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez knew from the beginning that they didn’t want their show to feel in any way like “trauma porn.” Their debut season, which landed on Netflix last February, found moments of joy even as the Morales family struggled to save their restaurant in Los Angeles’ rapidly gentrifying Boyle Heights. The season’s closing chapter also presented an interesting challenge for the season to come: What does a more holistic, empathetic version of the stereotypically tragic deportation story actually look like? Last year we found the entire family scrambling to keep Morales patriarch Casimiro’s restaurant, Mama Fina’s, alive and in the family—a fight that continues into Season 2. But the finale dropped a major bomb when the beloved abuelo failed to show up at the hospital to meet his first great-grandchild. He was pulled over and detained due to an outstanding vandalism fine, and the episode ended with Pops in an ICE van. As they made plans for their half-hour comedy’s second season, first-gen writers Lemus and Chávez knew they wanted to depict “Pops”’ fight...

    FALLSTON, Md. (WJZ) —  A restaurant in Harford County is finally opening their doors in the coming days and they have chosen to kick off their Grand Opening by giving support to a local family after their daughter was hurt in a car accident. Zack Trabbold, the Executive Chef, and Owner of The Local said he chose the name because they plan to support all local businesses with their produce, seafood, wooden charcuterie boards and more.

    Republicans who are refusing to get vaccinated are not the only significant demographic refusing to do so, despite jibes from Nancy Pelosi and the White house, new data shows.      Data from both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) show key Democrat voting blocks - including blacks, Hispanics and people of all races between ages 18 and 24 -  are also hesitant to have the shot.  Earlier this week, Nancy Pelosi attempted to blame Republican leaders for failing to encourage their constituents to get vaccinated, but failed to mention why her own party hadn't been pushing millions of reluctant Democrat voters to also get the shots.  'Certainly, the Republican Party has been delinquent in embracing the science that people need to be vaccinated,' she stated.  Joe Biden also appeared to imply that partisanship was to blame for the United States' flagging vaccine drive during a lengthy White House speech Thursday.  He said: 'Look this is not about red states and blue states, it's literally about life and death 'It's about life and death...
    Some 4.5 billion years ago, a lump of molten rock began to form in the solar system that eventually evolved into present-day Earth. David A. Roberts, an artist and computer scientist, created the evolutionary story of the planet in a mesmerizing video that puts billions of years of transitions into a four-minute simulation. The epic tale starts with an extremely hot and crater filled protoplanet that is still forming into a stable world.  The video transitions to a flat view of Earth, showing plate tectonics beginning to form, approximately 3 billion years ago. Moving along the evolutionary timeline, Robert shows viewers colorful features that represents water flowing on the planet and continents rising above the surface. The end of the video shows bright lights shining from continents worldwide, indicating that the once red hot world is now inhabited by humans. 'Concluding the prelude on the early earth, the pace slows to a cycle between day and night, terrain becoming fixed as tectonic movements become imperceptible,' Roberts shared in a blog post. 'Soon the night reveals unprecedented patterns of light, as...

    (CNN)As a curator of political history at the Smithsonian, I've spent years studying the bad old days of American politics. Leafing through contested election trial transcripts, constable's reports and boxes of fraudulent ballots, I've studied the voter suppression and violence that was once a common feature of our democracy in the 19th century. It always seemed distant to me, with a consoling "it used to be worse" appeal. But recently, this past has been reanimated by new, partisan state laws designed to make it harder to vote. Jon GrinspanHaving spent years researching how similar policies affected democracy in the 19th century, I can say: America, please don't go down this road again. We already know what happens if we do. In fact, there are a few crucial lessons to learn from similar efforts in the past.The first lesson is that tightening access to the vote hurts democracy for everyone. History shows that individual state laws can greatly encourage, or discourage, popular political participation nationwide, fundamentally altering American political culture. Consider the arc of American democracy from the 1820s to...
    IT was the sort of thing you would expect to see in the streets of Middlesbrough, or of course any English town, outside a kebab shop on a Friday night. Tyrone Mings stood his ground and as another bloke approached - in this case Sasa Kalajdzic - a brutal forearm smash was unleashed. 5Tyrone Mings could start ahead of Harry Maguire in England's Euro 2020 opener against CroatiaCredit: AFP 5Aston Villa ace Mings started in the Three Lions' 1-0 friendly win against AustriaCredit: Ryan Browne-The Guardian So the fact Mings delivered this unprovoked attack during an international is not only staggering but, as England prepare for the start of Euro 2020 without Harry Maguire, extremely worrying. Had this been against Croatia on June 13, with less then 10 minutes gone, England would have been reduced to 10 men. Croatia would have had a penalty. With a one-man advantage for virtually the entire game, they would have won. Mings was lucky his jab on the Austrian striker, who unsurprisingly collapsed onto the ground, was missed by Belgian referee Lawrence Visser and...
    A sheriff's deputy was undergoing surgery but in stable condition after being shot twice Wednesday morning while serving an eviction notice at an apartment in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker said that the suspect, 32-year-old Eddie Craig, briefly opened the door before opening fire with what he described as an "assault rifle" on Sgt. Ronald Waller, a 20-plus-year veteran of the sheriff's office.  CALIFORNIA SHERIFF’S DEPUTY DIES AFTER BEING SHOT DURING ATTEMPTED TRAFFIC STOP "These things make me angry," Baker said at a press conference at WakeMed, where Waller was in surgery.

    MANY of us spend hours on our computers every day - without even thinking how filthy they might be. But a computer repair man has revealed the horrifying truth after showing a mouse which was brought to him. 5No one could tell what colour this mouse was beneath the grimeCredit: @curtwj/tiktok Tiktok user Curtis is known for deep cleaning tech devices, and this video stunned his followers. Curtis said that when he first saw the mouse, he thought it was camouflage print, and he only noticed the filth on the device after the customer had left.

    SHOCKING video footage has emerged of a dead lion lying in a filthy pond in front of horrified visitors at a zoo in China. A member of the public filmed the tragic scene on Thursday at the Handan Foshan Wildlife Zoo in northern China's Hebei province. 5Zoo managers initially claimed the African lion was sleeping in the pondCredit: TikoTok 5Handan Foshan Wildlife Zoo is located in China's Hebei province Officials initially claimed the lion was "just resting" - but managers later confirmed the animal had died naturally of old age. In the TikTok clip, the horrified zoo visitor can be heard saying: "The lion is dead. Oh my god, this is so sad." The original footage has since been deleted from the account, MailOnline reports. The manager of the wildlife park's visitor centre initially insisted the lion was "resting" in the pond and denied the animal was dead. "We don't have such an incident here. The lion was just lying there and resting. It wouldn't die," the anonymous staff member told Handan Television over the phone on Thursday. Another...
    After launching two identically sized phones — the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro — last week, Apple will next start taking preorders for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max on November 6th. But you won’t have to wait until then to get a sense of just how “mini” this year’s smallest iPhone is. A hands-on video running over 40 minutes in length was posted to YouTube by George Buhnici, only to be removed for unclear reasons and then republished by 9to5Mac. And yep, next to the iPhone 12, it’s downright tiny. Image: George Buhnici (YouTube) This is the first real-world look at the iPhone 12 mini, which has a 5.4-inch screen, but in the more modern notched-display design first introduced with the iPhone 12. That means you won’t have to deal with the bezels (and wasted space) of something like the second-generation iPhone SE. The iPhone 12 mini will start at $699, which is $100 less than the 6.1-inch iPhone 12. ...
    A turn-based role-playing game using a retro sprite-based art style isn’t hard to come by nowadays, with the indie gaming market booming with them every other week. But Ikenfell, a new game from Happy Ray Games, slapped me in the face with pleasant surprises again and again as I played. Fun and well-written characters, a gripping story, and great music and sound design all surrounded my personal highlight of the game: a deep battle system that heavily impressed me. Ikenfell absolutely nails the retro charm that so many other games constantly try to accomplish, but in a way that feels different from other games of the same vein. While so many retro-inspired indie games go for the NES or SNES look, Ikenfell seems to go for more of a Game Boy Advance feel. From the sprite work to the music that combines chiptune instrumentation with traditional instruments, Ikenfell kept bringing me back to the days of playing RPGs like the Legacy of Goku series and Zelda games on the GBA with their visuals and accompanying sounds. Ikenfell begins by throwing...

    AFTER days of nagging, it's always a proud moment when the kids finally clean their rooms. And one mum was so chuffed with her three-year-old son's efforts that she decided to get the camera out to document the occasion. 3Amy's son's bedroom looked tidy at first glanceCredit: TikTok That is, until she realised the very cheeky way he got it looking so tidy WITHOUT actually doing any chores.

    Netflix is trying to surface more new shows in one place. The company announced that it’s going to group some of its content rows together into a tab called New & Popular. This section will only show up on TV devices and is rolling out widely after first being tested in April. The section will group together the New on Netflix row, the Coming Soon row, and the Top 10 row, which is debuted in February and is updated daily. It’ll also include a new row called Worth The Wait that’ll give subscribers a preview of the shows coming to the platform between the next 15 and 365 days. The Worth The Wait section is especially important for Netflix because it gives users a way to save and set reminders for upcoming shows. That might keep them from leaving the service, even if there isn’t anything immediately available they want to watch. The company grew impressively during its last quarter, adding 10 million subscribers, but it came with newly urgent user-retention problems. Netflix lost subscribers for the first time...
    Mayor Bill de Blasio made a symbolic gesture by announcing one-week furloughs for his nearly 500-person City Hall staff, himself included. Unfortunately, what it symbolized was how unseriously he’s still taking the crisis facing the city’s economy and its government. First off, the furloughs are spread over six months, leaving endless opportunity for backsliding. Second, they’ll save less than $1 million, when the city’s now staring at a $4 billion budget hole this year, and worse in future years. Nor does the bigwigs losing a week’s pay (maybe) make for any meaningful shared sacrifice when de Blasio is poised to lay off at least 22,000 city employees — and when hundreds of thousands of private-sector workers are now totally jobless, with many depending on food banks and other handouts. see also Bloated Apple: Cuomo tells de Blasio to cut the fat Gov.

    The Trump campaign is working hard to get inside former Vice President Joe Biden’s head on the day he accepts the Democratic presidential nomination. Biden is one of the many Democrats who live rent-free inside Trump’s head, so his campaign is hoping to return the favor with a campaign event outside Biden’s Scranton, Pennsylvania, birthplace and a digital ad campaign focusing on Biden’s son Hunter. Trump plans a detailed anti-Biden speech in Scranton as part of the effort to win Pennsylvania, a state crucial to his 2016 Electoral College victory but one in which he trails in current polling. Biden’s birthplace already made an appearance in the Democratic National Convention, when Sen. Bob Casey cast Pennsylvania’s votes in the nominating roll call in front of it. The Biden campaign dismissed Trump’s trolling, with a spokesman saying he “put the health of countless families across the Keystone State in danger and plunged the strong economy he inherited from the Obama-Biden Administration into a tailspin.” Now, “[t]his sideshow is a pathetic attempt to distract from the fact that Trump’s presidency stands for nothing but crises, lies,...

    A health care worker use a nasal swab to test Eric Rodriguez for COVID-19 at a pop up testing site at the Koinonia Worship Center and Village on July 22, 2020 in Pembroke Park, Florida.Joe Raedle | Getty Images As coronavirus case counts pile up across the U.S., President Donald Trump continues to blame testing — in rallies, interviews, and on Twitter — for the recent surge in the outbreak.  "If we didn't test, you wouldn't be able to show that chart," Trump said in response to a question from Chris Wallace about rising U.S. Covid-19 cases in a Fox News interview that aired on July 19. "If we tested half as much, those numbers would be down." But a CNBC analysis of testing data found that even as the U.S. has increased its testing capacity, cases of the virus are being found at a higher rate, a pattern that contradicts what epidemiologists say should be happening as a country gets a pandemic under control. "That claim is patently false," said Dr. Yonatan Grad, a professor of immunology and infectious...
    Major League Baseball was going to have a player test positive for COVID-19 eventually, it just happened sooner than they had hoped. Michael Reaves/Getty Images Washington Nationals superstar Juan Soto tested positive for COVID-19. Soto will miss Thursday's scheduled opening game against the Yankees. Given that the test that came back positive was administered on Tuesday, the Nationals can't know if other players besides Soto also caught the virus in the interim until a new round of test results come in. A player testing positive for COVID-19 was inevitable, but now the MLB will have to show it has a viable plan to still move forward with the season. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    INCREDIBLE pictures of two sharks catching waves just feet from a popular Australian beach shows just how dangerous surfing Down Under can be for humans. The unbelievable photos saw the 370-pound copper sharks as they swam up and down with the motion of the ocean less than 65 feet from land. 3Two copper sharks ride the waves in Red Bluff Beach, AustraliaCredit: mediadrumimages/SeanScott/@seanscottphotography 3The copper sharks can swim at speeds of 35 miles-per-hourCredit: mediadrumimages/SeanScott/@seanscottphotography Another image captured the mammals, who can zip through the water at speeds of 35 miles-per-hour, flying on an towering eight-foot wave.

    Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, trails leading Democratic challenger Sara Gideon by four points in her re-election race as her support continues to sag. Gideon, the speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, leads Collins 46-42 in a new Public Policy Polling survey, which sampled more than 1,000 Maine voters and has a margin of error of 3.1%. Gideon held a similar four-point lead in a PPP poll in March and edged out Collins by a single point in a Colby College poll from February, meaning this is the third straight poll to show Collins behind. She led the race by 16 points when it was first polled in June 2019. Gideon is considered the prohibitive favorite in her Democratic primary race against lobbyist Betsy Sweet and attorney Bre Kidman, according to the Bangor Daily News. The poll shows that Collins, who earned the title of the most unpopular senator in the country earlier this year, has an approval rating of just 36%. Though Collins won her previous races with a mix of Democratic and independent support, the poll shows that just 39% of independents and only 13% of Democrats approve of...
