The billionaire Virgin Group founder says the meeting was focused on the fallout from the bankruptcy of one of Trump's companies.
Leave it to human ingenuity to solve almost anything. Lauren Mesaros, a California nurse, needed to flee from the Tubbs Fire going on in Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties in Northern California. Mesaros also needed to get her three horses, including her pony Stardust, away from the flames as well. The problem? The trailer only held two of the three horses. Mesaros' solution? Put Stardust in the car. “He actually walked right into the car like a dog would,” Mesaros said in an interview with SF Gate. Mesaros said she put Stardust into the back of her 2001 Honda Accord, aided by her friend Carol Spears, whom Mesaros described as “a horse whisperer.” Mesaros' sister-in-law posted the picture to Facebook,
Most of us can but dream of rocking up to the club and casually meeting a member of a royal family. But, that's what happened to Ariana Austin on the dance floor of Washington D.C. nightclub Pearl back in December 2005 when she met Joel Makonnen, a.k.a. Prince Yoel. The story didn't end there for Austin and Makonnen. Twelve years on from their nightclub meet-cute, the couple tied the knot, and Austin became a princess. SEE ALSO: Prince George's favourite film proves once and for all he just can't wait to be king Per the New York Times , Prince Yoel is the great-grandson of Haile Selassie, the last emperor of Ethiopia, part of the Solomonic dynasty. Austin also happens to be of noble blood: she's the granddaughter of the lord mayor of Georgetown, Guyana. A post shared by Ariana Austin Makonnen (@chezariana) on Sep 15, 2017 at 7:14am PDT Enough about royalty, we want to know what went down in that nightclub on that fateful night in 2005. That night, Makonnen strolled over to Austin and her friend and said: "You guys look like an ad for Bombay Sapphire," according to the NYT . It appears Makonnen's regal background didn't help him out in the chat-up line department. Apparently, it took Makonnen just five more minutes to tell Austin: "You're going to be my girlfriend." Well, he certainly didn't waste any time. Official pics are here! All credit to the talented @dotunayodeji.

And, in case you were wondering, the couple certainly don't sit on thrones all day long. Austin works at the Executives' Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, and Makonnen works at Otsuka America Pharmaceutical. Congrats to the happy (royal) couple!

Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren asked Wednesday what NFL players were protesting when they take a knee during the national anthem, saying you could get "a hundred different answers" about what the gesture means. "I would like to ask these players 'What exactly are you kneeling for and why have you chosen the flag and the anthem to do it?" Lahren asked on "Fox and Friends." The action of kneeling during the national anthem before football games first began with then-San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a means of protesting against social and racial injustice in the U.S. "I bet if we asked a hundred players, we would get a hundred different answers. And then further more, I would
It's been a long time since Mark Hamill filmed the original Star Wars: A New Hope. A lot has happened to the actor since then, but there's one thing he remembers about filming that movie that came back while making the newest entry in the saga. Hamill says the desert of Tunisia and the Island of Skellig Michael have something in common. In both places, you can actually forget you're making a movie, as the environments were both so foreign to him that he really felt like he was in a galaxy, far, far away. According to Hamill...
Roy Moore, the bombastic Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama, claims NFL protesters who kneel during the national anthem are violating federal law. Moore, in an interview with TIME.com published Wednesday, made the case that NFL players - and conceivably, anyone else - who fails to stand and put their hands over their hearts when the "Star-Spangled Banner" is played is not only unpatriotic, but a law breaker. "It's against the law, you know that?" Moore told the magazine. "It was a act of Congress that every man stand and put their hand over their heart. That's the law." Moore told TIME that his position is about respect for the law and for fallen soldiers. "I back the president in

Philadelphia police are looking for a teenager who used his fists, instead of his words, when a stranger confronted him about his bad behavior.
The mother of a soldier killed in battle has said President Donald Trump “disrespected” her daughter-in-law when he called to offer his condolences. The claim appears to confirm accounts that Mr Trump upset the widow of Sergeant La David T Johnson, who was killed in Niger earlier this month, when he called her this week. Florida Representative Frederica S Wilson had previously recounted the call to MSNBC, claiming that the President had forgotten the fallen soldier's name.
The legendary Bigfoot and others like it have reportedly been spotted near a Northern California lake, according to a paranormal investigator. Jeffrey Gonzalez, a self-described paranormal expert, said he heard from a local farmer who saw the creature and four or five others running on his ranch near Avocado Lake. “One of them, which was extremely tall, had a pig over its shoulder," Gonzalez said in comments obtained by Fox 26, a Fox News affiliate. "And the five scattered and the one with the pig was running so fast it didn’t see an irrigation pipe and it tripped, with the pig flying over." According to his Facebook page, Gonzalez is a talk show host and an investigator at Paranormal Central,
Six-month-old Rugbie was crowned flower girl for her aunt’s wedding, but when it came time for her to make her way down the aisle, sleep prevailed. On Reddit, her father, Joe Morman, posted a photo of his hilarious baby girl making her way down the aisle fast asleep, falling back in the wagon pulled by her mom. “About 20 minutes before the wedding she was getting tired, so I was holding her and singing to her so she would go to sleep and get a quick little power nap in before the wedding,” Morman explained to Yahoo Lifestyle.
“For the purpose of this conversation, I have nothing but the highest regard for all of the talk-show men and women,” David Letterman told Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday night. “Even Jimmy Fallon. I’ll include him.” The original Late Show host was paying Jimmy Kimmel Live! a visit during the show’s week-long trip to Brooklyn-and while this wasn’t the first time Letterman had subtly jabbed the Tonight Show host, it was also just a small part of a digressive, often hilarious conversation that touched on, among other things, Letterman’s decision to give Conan O’Brien a horse and whether he misses being a late-night fixture. You’re probably wondering about the horse. During O’Brien’s visit to Stephen Colbert’s
A male chimpanzee has been observed snatching a seconds-old newborn then eating it. This behavior has never before been documented by scientists, who say it could explain why female chimpanzees normally hide themselves away during the late stages of pregnancy. In December 2014, scientists were studying a group of chimpanzees at Mahale Mountains in Tanzania.

When you hear about what to eat (and not eat) for weight loss, you generally encounter talk about bread, fried foods, and sugary desserts. While you should certainly eat these in moderation, there's one ingredient that shows up in almost all your meals that isn't doing you any favors in terms of shedding a few pounds: oil. Julieanna Hever, MS, RD, CPT, a plant-based dietitian and health and fitness expert, told POPSUGAR, "Oils are a processed food. Basically, the fat is stripped out of the intact food (be it an olive, coconut, or avocado), leaving behind the fiber and many other nutrients." We know already that processed foods are something that should be avoided in the majority of our diet,
A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook. Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if a Facebook post about an existing arrest warrant received more than 1,000 shares. The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge. “I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise. “And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.” In a follow-up post, the department said he “may or may not be a man of his word,” adding, “it is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality.” The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. “Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,” the department said. “He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.” Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation. Is this the world's most meta mugshot?
