    Kofi Cockburn knew he entered the NBA draft combine this week in Chicago with plenty to prove. After using the event as a growth experience last year, the former Illinois center is set on entering the NBA next season. And despite second-round projections and questions about his perimeter abilities, Cockburn believes he can carve out a place as a professional. “A lot of people doubt my ability to adapt to the NBA,” Cockburn said. “You can put me in any situation and I can definitely contribute. … The NBA is a whole different ballgame. They have no idea what I’m capable of so they’ll always have doubt.” Cockburn declared for the draft after his third season at Illinois after averaging 20.9 points and 10.6 rebounds and being named an All-American for the second straight year. Measuring 7 feet tall with a 7-foot-4 wingspan, Cockburn’s size was his most obvious advantage at the combine. With other top center prospect such as Chet Holmgren opting out of scrimmages to avoid injury, Cockburn towered over his opposition Thursday and Friday. Cockburn idolized Shaquille...

    CAST your mind back to when you were 19 and life probably revolved around first jobs, drama-filled romances and house-shares. But for TikTok user Claire, her day-to-day couldn't be more different than your average care-free teen. 4Claire had her first baby when she was 18Credit: @mamaclaire00/Tiktok 4She married when she was 19 and gained two stepchildrenCredit: @mamaclaire00/Tiktok By the time she was nearing the end of her teenage years, the social media star was already responsible for looking after four children. Earlier this year, the mum - who recently turned 20 - explained her unusual journey into motherhood in a viral video that's racked up over 35,000 "likes". One viewer asked: "What do you think has changed so much in a year or two that has suddenly made her such a mature TEEN?" "Let me show you," Claire replied.

    Dan Ives is Managing Director and Senior Equity Research Analyst covering the Technology sector at Wedbush Securities  'Greed, for lack of a better word, is good' That's Gordon Gekko's line from Wall Street, the epic 1987 movie about corporate raiders, starring Michael Douglas as the cutthroat investor and Charlie Sheen as the naïve up-and-comer. Gekko delivers the 'greed' line at a packed meeting for the fictional firm, Teldar Paper. He's trying to convince the shareholders that they'll make more money on their investments if only they'd join him in wrestling control of company away from its existing board and handing it to him. It's called a hostile takeover. 'The new law of evolution in corporate America seems to be survival of the unfittest,' says Gekko. 'Well, in my book you either do it right or you get eliminated.' It's an imperfect comparison, but it goes a long way toward explaining what will likely happen next as visionary billionaire, Tesla and SpaceX CEO and serial tech entrepreneur Elon Musk sets his sites on owning Twitter. Just like Teldar in Wall Street –...
    Howard Stern took a phone call from a listener who happened to be a veteran, wanting to talk about the war in Ukraine. Stern held nothing back as he described what he thinks Ukrainians should do to Russian President Vladimir Putin. On Wednesday’s episode of The Howard Stern Show, he said, “How fucking funny is it- how shitty the Russian military is? They can’t even take over the Ukraine. Isn’t it great how they’re getting their ass kicked? I love it!” The caller chimed in to say, “I love how they’re getting their ass whooped by a bunch of guys who were previously accountants or media stars!” “Those brave Ukrainians are just fucking with them. They’re taking out airplanes, they’re taking out helicopters,” Stern said. “Ukrainians oughta march into Russia and fuck them up. And take out Putin and strip him naked and fuck him in the ass.” Co-host Robin Quivers agreed, “do us all a favor!” “Putin’s gotta be embarrassed,” Howard suspected. “A KGB agent- can’t even train a fucking decent military. The dudes pulling in...
    An American man admitted that he's worried the UK has a 'warped' idea of healthy body size after his British colleagues called him 'skinny', and said he'd look better at 15st . The man, from Tennessee, explained on Reddit that he practices yoga and walks to work to maintain his 11.5 stone, 6'2 frame, however his British colleagues believe 14-15st is normal for someone his height. He said it's made him wonder if Britons are getting the same 'laughable' idea of what makes a healthy body size as people in the States. Many commenters were quick to agree that people don't know what a healthy body size looks like, while others argued health can't easily be measured by weight. An American man who has been called 'skinny' by his British work colleagues has sparked a discussion about what people perceive as a healthy body weight (file image) Posting on Reddit, the man explained his work colleagues think a man 6'2 should weigh between 14-15 stone, however he wouldn't consider it healthy  The man penned a lengthy post explaining that he...
    A British woman believed to be one of the first victims of the Tinder Swindler has claimed he was a 'flop in bed' and that she 'had to teach him the ropes'. Shimon Yehuda Hayut, 31, has become notorious after a Netflix documentary exposed how he ruthlessly conned women he had met on Tinder out of an estimated £7.4 million by posing as the son of a billionaire diamond mogul.       One of his first victims was British mum Samantha Hales, 36, who claims that the conman 'must have really improved his game in the last ten years to get money out of these girls'. Speaking to the Sun, Samantha, from Derby,  says that Shimon, who is now based in Tel Aviv, told her he was a Mossad spy and pilot when they met on Plenty of Fish in 2012.

    YOU DON'T typically leave a first date with some extra cash in your wallet. Except that was the case with one woman after "one of the most interesting" dates she's been on. 3A woman shared on TikTok how her Tinder match opened their conversation by asking how spontaneous she wasCredit: TikTok 3She played along and she ended up at a nice restaurant in Malibu, but the date included other peopleCredit: TikTok In a video that's been viewed over 3 million times, the woman recounted her first-date experience with a Tinder match. She explained that, at the time this all happened, the app was still considered brand new and she was "swiping [her] heart out." She matched with a guy who immediately messaged her: "Hey, how spontaneous are you?" The woman claimed that, despite not being super spontaneous, she would play along. Just a few hours after matching, she was dressed "nice" and in her Tinder match's car heading to a cliffside restaurant in Malibu. This is where the date gets interesting. Most read...
    Fox News' Jeanine Pirro said Jen Psaki must be 'locked in an ivory tower' to think Americans don't care about crime policy after the White House press secretary made fun of the judge's segment on the 'consequences' of 'soft-on-crime policies.'  'She wants to know why I'm talking about the consequences of soft on crime,' Pirro said on Fox News' The Five Monday evening.   'Well, I'm talking about the consequences of the Democrat, liberal, progressive, leftist, soft-on-crime, criminal-loving, victim-hating group that has made a decision that no bail, no jail and that criminals are–they should be privilege and that social justice and rogue prosecutors should not be a part of the criminal justice system.'  'Jen, are you so locked up in your ivory tower that you have no idea what Americans really care about and what they're concerned about?' she added.  Citing rising crime rates across the U.S., Pirro said: 'Joe Biden ignored all this. Joe Biden ignored the looting, the burning, the rioting, and he ignored the burning of a federal courthouse, and police precincts.' Psaki was speaking about a...
    Regular readers know of my interest in “regime change.” That’s the term I’ve been using to describe when one party and its ideas prevail among a majority of Americans until they fail to meet the political demands of the moment. That’s the start of a period of transition, during which decadence, instability and decay reign, until the other party and its ideas prevail among a majority. “Regime change” is another way of describing what some political scientists call “the cycles of political time.” The theory is that political time is not linear, moving in one direction that, as many Americans believe, leads us toward some kind of enlightened end. Instead of political time progressing, as many liberals believe, it moves in cycles so there is no end at which point society is much improved comparatively. Instead, old problems become current, current problems become old. History doesn’t repeat itself. It’s just familiar. This is important to understand. The Supreme Court stands ready to strike down Roe. Republicans in states like Georgia and Wisconsin are creating conditions by which legislators can steal...
    OH dear, Harry. It might be increasingly cold, lonely and alienating sitting up there, aloft your moral high horse. As you trot through fields of gold and enlightenment leading you to the promised land of endorsements and brand representation, pausing occasionally to look down on us mere mortals and share with us crumbs of your privileged wisdom. 4But your latest words of advice have fallen well short of someone who hoped to be a man of the people, writes UlrikaCredit: Getty But you must still feel cock-a-hoop. What a grand life you must have. But your latest words of advice have fallen well short of someone who hoped to be a man of the people. Advising people stuck in jobs that don’t bring them joy to quit is not just careless and foolhardy but yet another sign of how utterly disconnected you are from reality. My disappointment is palpable. Of all the royals, you always showed glimmers of humility and vulnerability. And your acceptance of a fluctuating mental health endeared you to me. However, hearing from an Eton-educated, elitist and...
    Astronomers have discovered unusual radio waves coming from the direction of the Milky Way's centre – but they don't know what's causing them.  The group of signals, collectively called ASKAP J173608.2-321635 after their coordinates, suggest a new class of stellar object, according to the experts.  They were discovered using the ASKAP radio telescope in the Western Australia desert, about 500 miles (800km) north of Perth. What's weird is the signal flickers on and off at irregular intervals for weeks at a time, before suddenly 'switching off' and going dark – something that does not align with any known space objects, the experts reveal.  THE MILKY WAY Our Solar System is in the Milky Way galaxy. But our Sun is just one of about 200 billion stars in the Milky Way. And astronomers have discovered more than 3,200 other stars with planets orbiting them in the Milky Way. The Milky Way is also just one of billions of galaxies in the universe. ASKAP J173608.2-321635 has now been picked up 17 times in under two years, they say.  'We have been surveying the sky with ASKAP...
    Internal fights over the price tag for President Joe Biden's economic package brought on Senate rules amid GOP opposition have left the public knowing very little about what his (shrinking) $3.5 trillion package would do. After months of wrangling over the size and makeup of the package – which would fund paid leave, pre-K, seek to lower prescription drug costs, and tack new benefits onto Medicare – just a tenth of the country knows a lot about what's in it. Another third say they have a 'general sense and some specifics,' according to a A CBS News / YouGov poll released Sunday. Fewer, 28 per cent, say they have a 'general sense' of what's in the bill without knowing specifics, with 29 per cent saying they don't know what is in it – meaning a majority don't know any specifics about the president's signature plan. A majority don't know any specifics about what is in Biden's plan, according to a CBS/YouGov poll Just 10 per cent of Americans knows a lot about what's inside President Joe Biden's Build Back Better...
    WHEN Graham Potter was linked to the Tottenham job in the summer, many of the club’s fans were less than impressed by the prospect of him taking over. The Brighton hierarchy were never worried it might actually happen and were always confident of retaining their forward-thinking manager. 2Tottenham fans must be wishing they hadn't scoffed at the idea of Graham Potter taking chargeCredit: Getty 2Nuno Espirito Santo is struggling for confidence But how those sceptical Spurs supporters may now wish the Englishman had swapped life at the Amex for the Lane given how things are going under Nuno Espirito Santo. The turnaround in fortunes for Nuno, who was named the Premier League manager of the month for August just 17 days ago, shows how quickly your stock can rise and fall in football. But those of us who have been following Potter’s project down on the South Coast can see why he is so highly regarded within football - and why his approach is built to outlast being a hero one moment, a zero the next. The former full-back, 46,...
    Talk about Mini It is to do it from an institution on wheels. When Sir Alec IssigonisIn the late 1950s, he drew his master lines, never thinking about the impact it would have. Especially when it was the response to the Suez Canal oil crisis and the rising fuel prices in the UK. This happened with the models of other firms, but the English brand, despite being in the hands of BMW, has managed to respect its essence. The Mini Today it is one of the roundest products of all that we can find in the urban segment. Of course, we cannot ignore that It is no longer the direct and incisive “kart” that we met with the first generation of the BMW era. Now it is more bourgeois, but when it is required it knows how to respond. Also, think about the environment and the Mini Strip is the proof of it. We tell you the idea that this concept brings, because it is very interesting. Eye… The Mini Strip arises from the collaboration between the house...
    For the most part, the writers of the animated series “What would happen if…?” (“What if …?”) they had a lot of leeway to create the stories they wanted. However, there were some limits. They could not “play” with the Star Wars characters, towards which they wanted to include some jokes or had to discard the idea of ​​seeing Peter Parker turning into a spider. Now we know an idea that also stayed on the writers’ table. The main writer after the series, AC Bradley, has talked about the proposal he made to Marvel at first to get the job: Captain Hydra. This is a clear reference to the twist on Captain America a few years ago in the comics at the hands of Nick Spencer, when it was revealed that Steve Rogers was actually an undercover Hydra agent. Bradley proposed to Marvel Studios the idea of ​​Steve Rogers falling off the train in “Captain America: The First Avenger” instead of Bucky Barnes. While that moment turned Bucky into the Winter Soldier, the idea was that in “What...
    I might be a cat lady. When I introduce people to Marie, my spunky, white-with-black-spots cat, I explain that she’s half of my personality. It’s not far off. I grew up with cats and a dog, but when I went to college, pets weren’t an option. I spent two years enjoying a life with zero cat hair on my clothes, but something was missing. When I went home, it was just a room – four off-white walls, a very uncomfortable dorm bed and faux-wood furniture. So, as soon as I moved off-campus, I got a cat. Well, I mean that I got a kitten. I adopted Marie from my family vet. I hoped that having a critter around would light a spark in the hearth and bring some warmth into my home. I wanted a reason to be home beyond a place to lay my head. And, perhaps surprisingly, it worked. I went from studying in the library until the wee hours of the morning to going home early just to spend more time with her. I went from never...
    Catastrophic events on Earth don't come at random, but are dictated by a 'pulse' of geologic activity that occurs every 27.5 million years, a new study reveals.  Researchers performed an analysis of 260 million years of major geological events, including extinctions, eruptions and sea-level fluctuations. The team, from New York University, found the events occurred in 'recurring clusters' spaced roughly 27.5 million years apart.  These pulses may be the result of as-yet-undetermined 'cycles' of activity in the Earth's interior, such as plate tectonics, although similar cycles in the Earth's orbit in space might also play a part.  The most recent 'pulse' of major geological activity was around 7 million years ago, suggesting the next one is more than 20 million years in the future. Scroll down for video NYU researchers found that global geologic events are generally clustered at 10 different timepoints over the 260 million years, grouped in peaks or pulses of roughly 27.5 million years apart 'Many geologists believe that geological events are random over time,' said study author Michael Rampino, a geologist and professor in New York University's Department of...
    Sitting at the edge of the pier with the waves gently lapping at her toes, the warm Caribbean breeze blowing and a full moon overhead, it could not have been a more perfect night.  Beside her, an old friend laughed and reminisced as the wine and whisky flowed. But within a couple of hours, this peaceful scene would descend into a 'living nightmare'.  A single gunshot pierced the night air, followed by a scream – then a splash as a body entered the water. And Jasmine Hartin's life would never be the same again. Today, the horrific chain of events on the night the 32-year-old socialite accidentally shot dead her good friend, Belize police superintendent Henry Jemmott, can be revealed in detail for the first time. The horrific chain of events on the night Jasmine Hartin (pictured) accidentally shot dead her friend, Belize police superintendent Henry Jemmott, can be revealed in detail for the first time Although she has not spoken directly to The Mail on Sunday, this newspaper understands she told police about the moment the gun went...
    Sharks almost disappeared from the world's oceans around 19 million years ago, with population numbers plummeting by more than 90 per cent, a study found. Researchers led from Yale University constructed a record of shark diversity and abundance spanning the last 40 million years based on fossil teeth and scales. The episode came, the team explained, at a time when shark numbers had been some ten times greater than they are today, and they never truly recovered. This fundamental shift in the ecological composition of pelagic predators paved the way for the for the large, migratory shark lineages that now dominate our oceans. However, the cause of this mysterious 'massive shark die-off' and its wider implications are, at least for the present, unknown to scientists. Sharks almost disappeared from the world's oceans around 19 million years ago — with population numbers plummeting by more than 70 per cent — a study found. Pictured: a negative image of a shark made up of 'denticles', the serrations found on the teeth of sharks 'We happened upon this extinction almost by accident,' said paper...
