    YOU may have heard of some personality tests - including Myers-Briggs, Enneagram tests, and Love Languages - but one sinister test reveals your darkest traits. If you're not afraid to learn more about your sinister side, this is the test for you. 1The Dark Triad examines three personality traits The Dark Triad is a personality test examining three social traits that many find undesirable: narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy. You'll answer questions and receive a personal score for each of the traits, which are said to be related to one another. Psychologists Daniel N. Jones and Delroy L. Paulhus conducted research that helped develop the Short Dark Triad test. Their research informs the theory of the brief test. READ MORE LIFESTYLE STORIEShotelkeeping?

    Abu Dhabi, UAE (CNN)As Russia faces unprecedented sanctions on virtually all sectors of its economy, it may have to turn to a trusted ally with more than four decades of experience with Western embargoes. Until the Ukraine war, Iran was the most sanctioned country in the world, according to Castellum.Ai, which tracks sanctions. Russia now holds that record and the two countries are in what analysts call "a marriage of convenience" that is likely to grow stronger as the war in Ukraine escalates. "Common interests in helping the other evade sanctions are important to these dynamics in Russia-Iran relations," said Giorgio Cafiero, CEO of Gulf State Analytics in Washington DC. Amid tit-for-tat air blockades between Moscow and the West last month, Russian transport minister Vitaly Savelyev said his country is "studying the case of Iran" to help it deal with sanctions on maintenance and spare parts. Iran still operates some planes purchased before the 1979 Islamic Revolution that ruptured its ties with the West. "This bilateral relationship will likely grow stronger as the war in Ukraine rages on, especially if...
    (CNN)The confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson to be the first Black justice in the Supreme Court's 233-year history was as much a historic moment for America as it was a political win for Democrats.Democrats shouldn't get too excited, though. Jackson may be one of the few remaining judicial confirmations of the Biden presidency. Last week, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell repeatedly refused to answer whether he would even hold hearings on a nomination if Republicans were to take control of the Senate in the election this November.Doing so would be McConnell's latest ruthless breach of the norms of government, and one that will make the public lose even more confidence in the political independence of our courts. However, given that McConnell has been rewarded every time he has blown up the intentions of the framers, his continuing to do so is perfectly rational behavior. The question for McConnell's colleagues and the American public is whether they are willing to stop complaining about McConnell's behavior and take aggressive steps to stop it.Under the Constitution, the president "shall have Power, by and...
    (CNN)Madeleine Albright was in New York on the day in 1997 when the US Senate voted to confirm her to become the first female US Secretary of State. At that time, she was the US Ambassador to the United Nations. We sat together at the ambassador's residence at the Waldorf Astoria, watching the vote on C-SPAN. "Isn't this weird?" she said to me. I nodded. Weirder for me than you, I thought to myself. She was confirmed unanimously. Biden remembers Albright as a force for goodness, grace, and decency I came to work for then-Ambassador Albright in 1994 at the US Mission to the UN. It was a temporary three-month assignment during the UN General Assembly, when world leaders descend upon New York and revive talks of multilateralism. Read More I had just returned from a summer internship at the US Embassy in Ankara. Armed with a security clearance, I got a part-time gig answering phones and fetching lunch. Albright and I exchanged few words beyond "good morning," "good night" and "thank you." I didn't even think Albright had...
    (CNN)Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is trying to prove there's truth in the old expression, 'the pen is mightier than the sword.' Or in his case -- the selfie video is mightier than the Russian fighter jet.There's no doubt Ukraine's military is outmatched; it is the David to Russia's Goliath. And yet Zelensky is wielding a modern-day slingshot in the form of social media tools and modern communication skills that are helping him gain an upper hand in what is also a crucial battle: the struggle to control the narrative of war. Influencing people's perception depends on messages that are simple, memorable and impactful. In Zelensky's communication -- ranging from Twitter posts to media interviews and video addresses to foreign parliaments -- he has checked all three of those boxes. This messaging, in addition to powerfully persuasive optics, will guarantee Zelensky's words have a place in future history books. Though right now, Zelensky is likely less concerned with his legacy and more focused on keeping his citizens alive. It's one thing to arm your soldiers with advanced weaponry -- the importance...
    Frisbee is part German shepherd, chow chow and cocker spaniel, with a sprinkle of another indeterminate breed.  Although she appears to be very happy with life — she rolls on to her side with a contented sigh, her nose twitching on constant high alert for the scent of food — at the grand old age of 16, she has amassed a lengthy list of health conditions. Her eyes are clouded with cataracts, she has stiff, arthritic joints and digestive problems caused by a malfunctioning pancreas, which means she must eat little and often.  And from the way she studiously ignores the calls of her owner, Dr Daniel Promislow, it seems her hearing isn’t as sharp as it once was either. It is to be expected: if Frisbee was a human, she’d be in her 90s (with a medium-sized dog, their first year roughly equals 15 human years, their second, nine human years and thereafter every year notches up five human years).  Many of the conditions and diseases that affect older dogs are the same as those that affect older humans...
    When the NBA and its television partners released the schedule of games at the start of this season, ratings-obsessed executives had reason to be excited about Saturday night. Warriors. Lakers. Steph. LeBron. A viewership bonanza, right? Well, not quite. The game is sure to draw eyeballs, but the air has been sucked out of the late-season showdown that many fans circled when schedules were released. The Warriors are hobbled and limping toward the finish line, desperately clutching to the No. 2 seed. The Lakers, though? Oh, the Lakers… Some oddsmakers, the ones who had the Lakers listed among the preseason favorites for the Larry O’Brien trophy, are going to make a lot of money. (The house always wins, after all.) From reports of dysfunction in the locker room to fans booing the home team, the Lakers’ season has gone every which way of wrong for them to carry a 27-35 record into Saturday night’s primetime showdown. It puts the Warriors’ recent woes — losers of five of their past six games and seven of their past nine, but still 43-20...
    A royal biographer has said that Meghan Markle could learn from how the Duchess of Cornwall has navigated life in the public eye, despite the abuse she received at the start of her relationship with Prince Charles. Angela Levin, a royal commentator and author of several biographies of senior members of the family, spoke to GB News today after the Her Majesty gave her blessing for Camilla to become Queen Consort when Prince Charles ascends the throne. Comparaing the two women, she described Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex as a 'difficult woman' who is 'not somebody who wants to work as a team'.  In an interview with Eamonn Holmes and Isabel Webster, she compared the Duchess of Cornwall to Prince Philip in his commitment to the Queen and her duties. 'When she's with Prince Charles, she takes a backwards step and she's there to support him rather like Prince Philip was,' Angela said. 'She doesn't try to interfere, she doesn't try to outsmart him, or rush ahead and shake hands with whoever is there. Queen Elizabeth pictured with her...
    Teresa Moon, a Detroit resident who lives next to a former segregation wall used to separate Black and white communities, speaks during an interview in her home on Oct. 25, 2019, in Detroit. Cynthia Harris, a Black homeowner in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington, D.C., did something that a lot of heirs in her situation simply do not do: She held on to her inheritance. Harris, who was left a home her parents paid about $23,000 for in 1969, told NPR that she thought about selling it 15 years ago and even reached out to a realtor. But when he advised against the sale of the home, which was on a corner lot and valued at about $220,000, she took his advice. That property is now worth $1.2 million, according to an estimate NPR obtained. "I feel real good about it," Harris said, laughing. "And actually I ended up marrying the realtor. We live in the house together." She told NPR she's now hoping to sell the home, feeling like she's done what she intended to do. "We're city people,” Harris said. “We didn't get...
    American conservatives have complained much about the uptick in “woke” ideologies, such as LGBTQ ideology and Critical Race Theory, taking over American institutions such as the media, the schools, Big Tech and even the governance of America’s largest corporations. As this trend has come to a head, the partisan divide has reached a point of all-out ideological warfare. This warfare was particularly pronounced under the presidency of Donald Trump, whose strong anti-woke and anti-elitist rhetoric stirred the nation. Yet surprisingly little was done under the Trump presidency to counteract the spread of such ideologies in a concrete way, despite the fact that this was ostensibly what Trump was elected to do. Trump’s anti-woke stance was mostly rhetorical. At the state level, a small number of red states have undertaken to ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory in their schools. But beyond this, relatively little was achieved at a national level.

    Jerusalem (CNN)When it comes to Covid-19, it seems where Israel leads, the rest of the world follows. For almost a year, the country has offered other nations a glimpse into the pandemic's future.Israel has been at the forefront of vaccination rollouts for adults and teenagers, pioneered a vaccine passport and, in recent months, has spearheaded the use of booster shots.At the end of July, the country began offering boosters to those over the age of 60; since late August, boosters have been available to anyone over the age of 16, five months after their second dose of the vaccine.Now, a person is not considered fully vaccinated in Israel until they have received a third dose of the vaccine, once they are eligible for it. More than three months on, Israeli health officials say the data is clear: Booster shots helped bring down the fourth wave of the virus that swept the country in August and September. CDC recommends Covid-19 boosters for all adultsRead MoreAt its peak, that wave saw more than 8,000 new Covid-19 cases per day, and more than...

    We've turned the world upside down. We wear our sexual, political, and medical identities on our sleeves and we hide our Christian faith. Sex, politics, and medicine should all be private. They used to be private. We have all sorts of laws protecting our medical privacy. But now the governor of New York, Kathy Hochul wears a "vaxed" necklace the way Christians used to wear crosses. We created voting booths to protect our political privacy. Now many Americans list their political affiliation at the top of their social media bios. Our political and sexual identities, along with our vaccination status, take precedence over our religious affiliation. The left sees this as progress. I see it as the destruction of the values that held families, this country, and Western civilization together. Our healthy cultural norms have been under attack for decades. We had some very unhealthy cultural norms that needed to be eliminated. We're in the process of overcorrecting. Not all change is good change. I watch football on Sundays and I see NFL players with the words "Inspire...
                        President Joe Biden has asked several Trump appointees to resign from military advisory boards, triggering anger from conservatives who say the move breaks norms. “Typically, military advisory boards by tradition have been exempted from undue partisan influence. On non-military boards, it is generally accepted that new presidential administrations do changes, but avoid doing it to any depth for military boards,” Republican Party of Virginia Chair Rich Anderson told The Virginia Star. “This recent development is a continuation of the Biden administration practice of politicizing any and every element of American life, in and out of government.” Former Trump senior counselor Kellyanne Conway was asked to resign from the Board of Visitors to the United States Air Force Academy. “Three former Directors of Presidential Personnel inform me that this request is a break from presidential norms. It certainly seems petty and political, if not personal,” she wrote in a letter to Biden. “I’m not resigning, but you should,” she concluded. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in...
    China’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic was totalitarian, deceptive and overbearing throughout, but the United States could learn a little about encouraging its population to be healthy from its counterparts in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Chinese reporting of its own COVID-19 data can’t necessarily be trusted, but by all accounts the CCP has managed to keep its death rate from the coronavirus pandemic far lower than that of the United States or many other countries. Undoubtedly this has to do, at least in part, with sealing people in apartment buildings, meticulously tracking the activity of citizens and stamping out people’s travel rights. However, it’s also partly because China’s population is far less fat than America’s.
    Four recently discovered planets approximately 130 light-years from Earth are in the 'teenage' portion of their life span and could tell scientists a great deal about the early years of Earth.  The exoplanets, known as TOI 2076 b, TOI 2076 c, TOI 2076 d and TOI 1807 B, orbit stars TOI 2076 and TOI 1807, respectively.  The newly discovered planets are larger than the Earth, between two and four times the size of our planet, and are still in their 'transitional' phase of their lifecycles, the study's lead author, Christina Hedges, said. Scroll down for video  'The planets in both systems are in a transitional, or teenage, phase of their life cycle,' Hedges, an astronomer at the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute and NASA's Ames Research Center, said in a statement.  Four exoplanets that orbit stars TOI 2076 and TOI 1807 were discovered that could tell scientists a great deal about the early years of Earth All four are between two and four times the size of our planet, and are still in their 'transitional' phase of their lifecycles ...
    Knicks could draft ‘elite’ passer to learn behind Derrick Rose as point guard solution Alexander Wilson July 11, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit One way or another, the New York Knicks will acquire a new point guard this off-season, whether it be through the NBA draft or free agency. Depending on how much the Knicks are willing to spend on the open market for a point guard will determine their strategy during the draft, but one great combination could involve a familiar face and an elite passing option at just 19 years old from Auburn. While names like Davion Mitchell and Tre Mann litter the headlines for Knick fans, one player who’s going under the radar is Sharife Cooper. At 6’3” and 180 pounds, Cooper is a bit undersized as he prepares to enter the NBA, but having been named to the McDonald’s All American and Jordan Brand Classic team in 2020, he is preparing to take the step to the next level. The Auburn...
    I WAS a newly qualified junior doctor the first time I had to do CPR. I’d trained on mannequins and knew what I had to do, but when the patient alarm sounded and I did my first chest compression on a real person, I’m not ashamed to admit I was scared. 2Dr Ranj Singh was a newly qualified junior doctor the first time he had to do CPRCredit: ITV It’s one thing seeing it in films but doing it in real life is terrifying. What no one tells you about CPR is that it’s incredibly physically challenging. In a hospital, we swap with another medic every few minutes because it’s exhausting. It’s rare that scenes like we saw with Christian Eriksen occur, but when they do, the worst thing is to do nothing. The chest compressions we saw Christian receive kept him alive so I urge everyone to spend a few minutes looking at online resources and giving yourself an idea of what you can do should you ever witness it. Whatever you do in that situation will buy...
