A Canadian man says he’s broke after the United Parcel Service lost track of his inheritance. The intended $846,000 delivery was a bank draft from TD Canada Trust, which still hasn’t refunded the lost fortune 10 months later. “It was a total surprise,” Lorette Taylor told CBC News.
The U.S. is home to a blend of languages and cultures, but unfortunately some people use this diversity to excuse their own…
It’s understandable how so many people outside of the New England Patriots fanbase can be convinced that quarterback Tom Brady made a pact with the devil - in addition to the fact that he continues to win Super Bowls, and looks like he stopped aging about 10 years ago. Brady’s athletic abilities have improved over the years. Jokes aside, No. 12 is in impeccable shape due to the incredibly healthy lifestyle that he and his family lead.
Spoiler alert: This post contains major spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. As promised, Star Wars: The Last Jedi gives us a definitive answer to the question of who Rey's parents are. And with apologies to every fan who's spun an elaborate theory about why she's definitely a Kenobi, or a Skywalker, or a Solo, or a Palpatine, or what have you, she's none of the above. SEE ALSO: 'The Last Jedi' review: Laughing and crying, Star Wars reaches full throttle After a movie and a half's worth of wondering about and pining after her missing family, Rey finally comes to terms with the truth in The Last Jedi: her parents were just a couple of random deadbeats who, as Kylo sneers, probably sold her off
Hours after Doug Jones upset Roy Moore in Alabama’s special election, the far right began cooking up conspiracy theories about busloads of voters being brought in from out-of-state: I am hearing rumors that black voters from MS were encouraged to cross over into AL and vote.
After a year in which a woman ran for president of the United States, won the popular vote, but lost the election to a man who is accused by 16 women of sexual misconduct , American culture appears to now be fully submerged in a fourth wave of feminism - so much so that the dictionary of record, Merriam-Webster, just designated “feminism” as its latest word of the year. And if 2017 was the year of feminism, fashion followed suit with the year of the slogan T-shirt, meant to inspire, empower, and of course, drive sales. There were those tees created at local screen print shops and donned during the Women’s March on Washington or sold on Etsy, alongside high-priced designer shirts. But, many wondered: To what end? In a world where the citizen-consumer becomes citizen-advertiser , some T-shirt sales benefited causes not quite on the same wavelength as Trump’s America. “Nevertheless, she persisted” T-shirts, inspired by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s comments against Sen. Elizabeth Warren, raised at least $300,000 for Planned Parenthood; Dior pledged a percentage of sales of its “We Should All Be Feminists” tees, which retailed for a little more than $700, to Rihanna’s nonprofit, the Clara Lionel Foundation; and after Robert Geller wore a T-shirt that said “immigrant” during his 2017 fall-winter runway show, the German-born designer mass-produced the garment and pledged to donate its sales to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). And the support for groups like the ACLU didn’t end after the Women’s March in January. To cap the year, the organization hosted a dinner at the international art fair Art Basel Miami Beach to promote - you guessed it - collaborative designer T-shirts from Everlane, Opening Ceremony, and Public School, the proceeds of which were donated to the ACLU. Aside from fundraising, is there any real point to wearing your politics on your sleeve? “You can empower and encourage others to speak up or become more active as well,” Kristina Haugland, the Le Vine associate curator of costume and textiles at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, told Allure. And what’s fashion, after all, if not self-expression?

An unidentified South Korean source told South Korea publication Korea JoongAng Daily that Hwang was purged from the party for taking bribes. The reports about Hwang first emerged after the South Korean intelligence agency briefed Seoul lawmakers on the situation in North Korea in November, a week after a North Korean soldier staged a daring defection across the demilitarized border area. Hwang’s position within the regime effectively made him second only to Kim, the result of a power struggle with the ruling party secretary, Choe Ryong Hae, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported in 2015.

Snyder firmly contends that Trump is a Fascist, but it’s hard for Americans to accept that because we’ve had a certain belief about governmental structure for so long. “… we just assume everybody is a friendly democratic parliamentarian pluralist until proven otherwise,” Snyder tells Salon. Trump would have to march out and explain in the simplest of English that he was a Fascist to his supporters, but even then he would have people who would claim that he’s being hyperbolic.
A former Today show staff member is detailing an alleged in-office affair with Matt Lauer that transpired 16 years ago.
During a press conference in Beverly Hills to promote his Nextflix movie “Bright,” the actor veered into a near-messianic jag about Democrat Doug Jones’ defeat of Republican Roy Moore in Alabama’s election for Senate, Indiewire reported.
Iskra Lawrence is not one for typos, especially when they’re in reference to her. The model has been living the life hopping from beach to beach from Mexico to Miami and upping her swimsuit game as she goes. The Independent published an article including photos from her vacation with the headline, “Plus-size model Iskra Lawrence is the picture of body confidence as she hits the beach in Miami.” In the article, she is referred to as a “plus size model” who is “becoming a bastion of body confidence.” While the second half of that sentence is definitely true, Lawrence doesn’t approve of the first half.

One such bot cop recently took over the outside of the San Francisco SPCA, an animal advocacy and pet adoption clinic in the city's Mission district, to deter homeless people from hanging out there -- causing some people to get very upset. Every time I travel to San Fran my heart breaks from seeing all the homelessness in a city with so much wealth and privilege. The homelessness issue in S.F. is thorny and complicated.
One of the first things we would do in Miami is slip into a swimsuit, and that is precisely what Emma Roberts did. The star checked out the beach scene in a peach-colored one-piece and wore a pair of Converse sneakers instead of flip-flops. Though the Mikoh bathing suit was revealing - it plunged low in the front - Emma brought along a cover-up: the Mother x Jacquie Aiche denim shirt. From the front, the button-down looked just like any chambray top, but once Emma turned around, you could clearly make out evil-eye embroidery and her name. The monogrammed design appears to be a celebrity favorite, as both Gigi Hadid and Karlie Kloss own the same piece. The models styled theirs with jeans, but
Nazareth, the mostly Muslim town in current-day Israel where Christians believe Jesus Christ was raised, canceled all Christmas celebrations this year, saying that President Donald Trump had taken the joy out of the holiday. The decision by Mayor Ali Salam to cancel festivities was made in protest of Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a move the Muslim mayor, who once compared himself to Trump, found offensive.
