    Meta is building the 'world's fastest AI supercomputer' to help Facebook in its transformation into a 'metaverse', it has announced today.  The new supercomputer, called the AI Research SuperCluster (RSC), will be the fastest supercomputer in the world when it's fully built by mid 2022, according to the tech giant.  RSC will pave the way toward building technology for 'the next major computing platform' – the metaverse. Facebook (the company, not the product) renamed itself Meta in October, as part of its long-term project to turn its social media platform into a metaverse.  In the future, the social media platform will be accessible within the metaverse using virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headsets and smart glasses.    According to Meta, RSC will help its researchers build better AI models that can work across hundreds of different languages, develop new AR tools and seamlessly analyse text, images and video simultaneously.  This could enable new AI systems that can power real-time voice translations to large groups of people in the metaverse, each speaking a different language, so they can seamlessly collaborate on a research project...
    A COUPLE were left disappointed when they had to cut their travel plans short so they decided to take control of their adventures and buy a van. Olivia Dickets and Adam Healy bought a run-down mobile home for £5,000 in January 2021. Since then they've worked hard to transform the shabby van into a stunning mobile home, splashing out £10,000 on the works. The camper van now has a kitchen area, a double bed and an impressive sliding window. Olivia, 24, said: "We wanted the van so we could travel freely. "Nothing beats waking up next to a beautiful beach or mountains and being the first ones to see the view that morning while drinking a cup of coffee snuggled up in bed." The pair were careful with their budget to make sure it stretched to cover the whole project. Olivia, from West Yorkshire said: "Overall we probably spent £10,000 on everything, the van, insulation, windows, vents and decoration.

    Recent patents filed by Facebook (now Meta) reveal how the company plans to generate profit from its metaverse virtual reality platform. According to the patents, Facebook plans to track everything from eye movements to nose twitches as its users explore the new platform. The Financial Times reports that a number of patents filed by Facebook, including tech to track eye movements, body positions, nose twitching, and facial expressions, reveal how the company plans to monetize its metaverse virtual landscape. Mark Zuckerberg introduces Meta (Facebook) Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg previously announced the company’s plans to invest $10 billion a year over the next ten years to develop the metaverse, an immersive virtual world of digital avatars powered largely by Facebook’s Oculus VR headsets. Other tech giants like Apple and Microsoft have reportedly taken notice and are developing similar projects as many believe that the virtual world could be the next step in social media. The Financial Times noted that hundreds of applications to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office provide an insight into how Facebook plans to monetize the digital world. The firm reportedly...
    The 2,000 year old skull of a Peruvian warrior was found to have been fused together with metal in one of the world's oldest examples of advanced surgery, according to a museum. The Museum of Osteology in Oklahoma says the skull, which is in its collection, is reported to have been that of a man who was injured during battle before having some of the earliest forms of surgery to implant a piece of metal in his head to repair the fracture. Experts told the Daily Star that the man survived the surgery, with the skull now a key piece of evidence in proving that ancient peoples were capable of performing advanced surgeries. The skull in question is an example of a Peruvian elongated skull, which is an ancient form of body modification where tribe members intentionally deformed the skulls of young children by binding them with cloth or even binding the head between two pieces of wood for prolonged periods of time.  A 2,000-year-old skull, pictured, is believed to have been that of a man who was injured in battle and...
    A Canadian military officer who fears he was at the 'Ground Zero' of Covid two months before China officially acknowledged the virus has demanded an investigation into the suspicious outbreak of illness there. The long-serving officer, who cannot be named as he is still in the forces, was among the scores of athletes who fell sick with a debilitating illness after attending the World Military Games in Wuhan in October 2019. He said foreign competitors found the city of 11 million people 'like a ghost town', and so many cases of a mysterious virus afflicted the Canadian team that a quarantine section was set up on their military flight back home. The officer, who is still suffering from the effects of his illness despite previous high levels of fitness, said a military-appointed doctor later said he almost certainly caught Covid. His revelations fuel concerns the Chinese government covered up the outbreak – with devastating consequences. The Beijing regime says the first confirmed case was December 8, three weeks before the World Health Organisation was tipped off by sources in Taiwan....
    Kate Middleton is 'very much a future queen in the making' but  'still struggles to mix with world leaders such as the Bidens' because she's a 'natural introvert', a close friend has claimed ahead of her 40th birthday. The Duchess of Cambridge, who will celebrate turning the milestone age on Sunday, grew on the world stage in 2021 taking on solo projects such as Hold Still and the Westminster Abbey Christmas Carol service. And her job involves mixing with high profile figures on the world stage, such as visiting a school with Dr Jill Biden during the G7 summit in June last year.  But her presence is still 'understated' her friend told Hello! adding that she is 'quietly growing in confidence' 10 years after marrying into the royal family. 'She still finds it quite challenging to mix with those sorts of players [the Bidens], because she's a natural introvert. But she's really growing into the role,' her friend said.

    Scientists have often invited the public to see what they see, using everything from engraved woodblocks to electron microscopes to explore the complexity of the scientific enterprise and the beauty of life. Sharing these visions through illustrations, photography and videos has allowed laypeople to explore a range of discoveries, from new bird species to the inner workings of the human cell. As a neuroscience and bioscience researcher, I know that scientists are sometimes pigeonholed as white lab coats obsessed with charts and graphs. What that stereotype misses is their passion for science as a mode of discovery. That’s why scientists frequently turn to awe-inducing visualizations as a way to explain the unexplainable. The BioArt Scientific Image and Video Competition, administered by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, shares images rarely seen outside the laboratory with the public in order to introduce and educate laypeople about the wonder often associated with biological research. BioArt and similar contests reflect the lengthy history of using imagery to elucidate science.
    A Covid-19 testing booth in New York on December 21, 2021.Ed Jones | AFP | Getty Images Nearly two years into the Covid-19 pandemic, reported daily infections are rising again as the omicron variant spreads rapidly around the world, in countries ranging from the U.S. and the U.K. to South Africa and Australia. The World Health Organization labeled omicron a variant of concern. While much remains unknown about it, the WHO warned that the variant is spreading "significantly faster" than the delta strain and could change the course of the pandemic. Still, "2022 must be the end of the Covid-19 pandemic," Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO director-general, said Wednesday.   Data on the pandemic — such as confirmed cases, hospitalizations and deaths — likely underestimates the actual situation owing to limited testing, frequency of reporting and quality of data collected. But based on available data, here are four charts that show the state of the Covid pandemic as 2021 comes to an end.Omicron is gaining dominanceThe omicron variant has been found in around 100 countries, said the WHO.

    Seoul (CNN)Ten years ago, the world watched as a young Kim Jong Un solemnly walked beside his father's hearse on a snowy morning in Pyongyang as distraught North Koreans wailed in grief.Kim's long black coat and hairstyle, reminiscent of his late grandfather Kim Il Sung, were viewed as a superficial effort to emulate the authority of his forebears. But the 20-something heir to the North Korean leadership quickly grew into the role, and Korea watchers who were once skeptical of his rule now expect him to remain in power indefinitely -- assuming his health holds.It's a marked change from the early days, when Joseph Yun, former US special representative for North Korea, remembers Kim as an object of ridicule. "For a while, there was so much negative caricature of Kim Jong Un in South Korea and in China, almost making fun of him. It was very difficult for the international public -- South Korea and America -- to take him seriously," he recalled.Read MoreThat view quickly changed as the young Kim displayed a ruthlessness and decisiveness that belied his age.Kim...
    The publicly traded company that plans to merge with Donald Trump's new social media venture revealed on Monday that it is being investigated by federal regulators. The disclosure came in a filing by Digital World Acquisitions Corp - a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) or 'blank check' company - that said the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and FINRA regulatory agencies had asked for details of stock trading and communications with Trump’s company before the deal was announced. It deals a blow to Trump's plans for an anti-censorship site two days after he announced his Truth Social had raised a further $1 billion in investments. Sen. Elizabeth Warren called for an investigation last month, citing press reports that DWAC had been in talks with Trump since March, before the SPAC went public -possibly in breach of rules. In a filing on Monday, DWAC said it had been asked by FINRA for information about its activities ahead of announcing a merger with Trump's company.  'According to FINRA’s request, the inquiry should not be construed as an indication...

    An online forum for women created to tackle misogyny and offer dating advice has come under fire for echoing incel culture by scrutinising and ridiculing men.  Founded in the US in 2019 by a 'collective' of anonymous women 'from all walks of life' the blog Female Dating Strategy is a website and online community claiming to help women enter 'relationships that truly benefit them', that's since become a global phenomenon.  It was created in reaction to Red Pill or Incel communities - a collection of websites, blogs, and online forums which oppose feminism and promote masculinity and misogyny.  Core beliefs include that 'most men are not of value' to women, that a man's 'role is to be the pursuer', men must 'invest' in you before you allow them to have sex with you, and that it's not acceptable to date a 'financially-challenged man'.  FDS labels unsuitable men 'scrotes', claims males with personality disorders or small penises should be avoided, while women should never move in with a man before marriage or have sex on the first date.

    A carpenter had the shock of his life when the world's most dangerous bird wandered into his workshop.  Tony Fleming had been working on timber furniture when a Cassowary walked into his shed at Julatten, north Queensland. 'Over a period of a year or so the Cassowary would wander around my property, chewing up plums and whatever it feeds on,' he said.  'Then one day it just meandered into my shed.' A carpenter was given the shock of his life when the world's most dangerous bird wandered into his workshop Cassowaries are considered to be the deadliest bird in the world despite their extremely shy nature.  They can stand as tall as 1.8metres and weigh up to 70 kilograms. Their legs can deliver powerful kicks and their claws grow as long as 10 centimetres.  Mr Fleming said that he was alarmed at first, but quickly realised the bird just wanted to inspect his shed.

    DELTA may have mutated itself into self extinction, scientists claim. The Covid variant has sprouted a number of “children” - scientifically called lineages - that share similar characteristics. 1Delta may have mutated so much it has self-destructed, experts sayCredit: Alamy It is the most dominant type of coronavirus globally, first believed to have caused chaos in India in late 2020.  Delta was already far more transmissible than the original “Wuhan” strain of the virus. And other variations of Delta have shown to cause less symptoms, carry immune-escaping mutations, or be even more fast-spreading. But now, it's possible it’s mutated too much and has “self-destructed”, according to experts in Japan, where the virus has slowed. The East-Asian nation saw its largest Covid wave in the late summer, with cases peaking around 23,000 a day in August. But the wave came to an abrupt standstill and has almost completely fizzled out, with no more than 140 cases a day. The nation’s capital Tokyo, the world’s largest city home to 40 million people, recorded just six new cases on Monday. A team...
    FANS went 'nuts' for Kieran Tierney's insane double nutmeg on Ion Jardan as Scotland beat Moldova 2-0 at the Zimbru Stadium last Friday. The left-back had missed out on Arsenal's last three Premier League games with an ankle injury, but returned for Scotland last week against Moldova in Chisinau. 3Tierney got out of trouble by poking the ball through Jardan's legs against Moldova on Friday 3TIerney got past Jardan with ease, showing his skill as he comfortably nutmegged the defender 3Tierney then repeated the feat, getting past Jardan for a second time in just a matter of seconds Tierney started on the left of a back-three as Scotland outclassed their opposition, with goals from Rangers' Nathan Patterson and Southampton's Che Adams. But one of the highlights of the game was an insane double nutmeg by Kieran Tierney on helpless Moldova defender, Ion Jardan. Tierney poked the ball through Jardan's legs as he ran towards the byline, then held the ball up and cheekily nutmegged the Moldovan for a second time. Fans then gave hilarious reactions to Tierney's double nutmeg,...
    Winter the Dolphin of Dolphin Tale Fame Dead at 16 After Intestinal Infection Richemont shares jump on sales beat and Farfetch investment discussions Don't take World Cup qualifiers between the U.S. and Mexico, like Friday's in Cincinnati, for granted. As international soccer evolves, these unique occasions face extinction. Even when there was next to no traction, there was tradition. Back when American soccer was many miles from the mainstream and when the World Cup may as well have been staged on Mars, the U.S. men and Mexico were playing for passage to the tournament. Technically, the first qualifier between the neighbors (and first meeting, period) was in far-off Rome, just three days before the start of the 1934 World Cup proper. The U.S. traveled by boat. The Americans then triumphed thanks to four goals from future Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Rams coach Aldo ‘Buff’ Donelli, earning the right to get blasted, 7–1, by the host Italians shortly thereafter. Around 10,000 fans attended that inaugural U.S.-Mexico match at the old Stadio Nazionale, according to reports. Among them was...
    Tom Eversley/Adobe There is a lack of respect for the origin, even though connecting to it is what will give us power. Perhaps this disdain comes from fear. Many are afraid of what they don’t know and what lacks certainty. What can be trusted is what can be controlled, planned, measured. There is enough science to back up some understanding of how the universe was created but there are gaps in knowledge. This is where we have plot holes in creation. This is where imagination comes in. Imagination fills the holes in this plot like a sower. A gardener who tends to this plot like land, lovingly sowing seeds then covering them. No wonder we cannot see what has been planted until significant growth has taken place. Much like unlocking necessary tools and weapons when playing a video game.  I’ve been finding much inspiration from Super Mario. From that ominous “duh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nah” track playing in my mind when I encounter a Koopa-like obstacle to recognizing how each ascent into the air is accompanied with a raised power fist, the game has...
    The Atlanta Braves World Series celebration parade wouldn’t be complete without Joc Pederson and his famed pearl necklace. It may seem goofy and odd, Joc Pederson and his pearls have become a welcomed sight in Atlanta. The Atlanta Braves likely don’t get to the 2021 World Series, let alone win it, without his presence and now he’s giving a few presents out to Braves fans during Atlanta’s World Series parade. Pederson has become well known for wearing a rather unconventional necklace during his time in Atlanta: a pearl necklace. It’s odd, it’s unique, and it’s fitting given Pederson’s fairly brash and entertaining personality. During the World Series parade, Pederson took the opportunity to give some jewelry out to fans who made it out to celebrate.

    Hopping on board the metaverse train, Nike has filed several new trademark applications that could indicate the athletic apparel company will sell virtual shoes and clothing in the not-too distant future. Oregon-based Nike filed applications for NIKE, JUST DO IT and the swoosh logo on October 27, according to Josh Gerben, a trademark attorney, who has filed over 6,500 trademarks for clients.  On October 28, it filed additional applications for the Air Jordan and Jumpman logos, according to CNBC.  DailyMail.com has reached out to Nike with a request for comment for this story.

    (CNN)Tuesday was a moment of contrasts for Major League Baseball regarding political correctness. First, Cleveland's franchise removed the "Indians" scripted logo above its scoreboard at Progressive Field in anticipation of a name change to "Guardians" next season. Then Atlanta's franchise won the World Series over the Astros in Houston as the "Braves," and their fans chopped and chanted into the night as if they were auditioning as fake Native Americans for a John Wayne movie from the 1930s.

    (CNN)The Atacama Desert in Chile has been used as a way to simulate alien environments, like Mars on Earth. Now, researchers believe it was the site of an ancient comet explosion intense enough to create giant slabs of silicate glass, according to a new study. The research published Tuesday in the journal Geology. About 12,000 years ago, intense heat turned Atacama's sandy soil into vast areas of glass stretching for 46.6 miles (75 kilometers), but researchers weren't sure what caused such a drastic change. The Atacama Desert is the driest desert region on Earth, with incredibly little moisture or precipitation. The fragmented desert glass contains tiny mineral fragments that are often found in meteorites that land on Earth. The minerals found in this glass matched up with particles collected by NASA's Stardust mission, which sampled a comet known as Wild 2. The researchers are confident that the minerals found in the Chilean desert are what's left after a comet similar to Wild 2 exploded over the sands and melted them.

    Vietnam's Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc is pictured on the screen (R) as he addresses his counterparts during the 4th Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Summit held online on Nov. 15, 2020.Nhac Nguyen | AFP | Getty Images The world's largest trade deal — which includes China and excludes the U.S. — will come into force in January next year. It comes as Australia and New Zealand announced they have ratified the agreement. The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership or RCEP was signed last year by 15 Asia-Pacific countries. The countries are the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and five of their largest trading partners China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. Australia said in a statement on Tuesday that its ratification — together with New Zealand's — paved the way for the deal to enter into force on Jan. 1, 2022, and allowed RCEP to reach a "milestone." New Zealand confirmed its ratification in a separate statement on Wednesday. RCEP will be in force 60 days after a minimum of six ASEAN members and three...
    There is something about the scenes emerging from Cop26 that seems to encapsulate the insanity, vanity and general vacuousness of the modern world perfectly. It’s a carousel of self-obsessed, bombastic, virtue-signalling hypocrites, from Sleepy Joe Biden snoozing on the job while his fleet of gas-guzzling limousines sit with engines idling out the back, to Nicola Sturgeon ambushing Sir David Attenborough for a selfie. Then there’s Greta Thunberg throwing her toys out of her pram (by the way, Greta, your dismissal of world leaders’ ‘blah blah blah’ on green issues was only quite funny the first time; now it’s just annoying) to Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, spouting unutterable nonsense about Nazis. Add to these the billionaires, most notably Jeff Bezos, fresh from his mate Bill Gates’s 66th birthday party in Turkey, where guests were shuttled from superyacht to beach club by helicopter. With one exception. One small, white-haired, beady-eyed nonagenarian with a mind like a steel trap and a sense of decorum combined with quiet humility that, frankly, knocks all these preening popinjays into a cocked hat.

    London (CNN)At the start of the pandemic, much of the Western world followed a similar playbook for tackling Covid-19. Spikes in transmission were met with lockdowns; international travel was heavily restricted; and though domestic constraints frequently proved controversial, hygiene measures like social distancing, hand-washing and mask-wearing were strongly encouraged -- if not legally mandated. But those days are behind us. Pandemic management now differs widely from country to country -- with the face mask just one example of the world's increasingly fractured approach to Covid-19. The science behind masks is fairly clear, and has only become more robust over the course of the pandemic. Studies have shown that masks significantly decrease the chances of transmitting coronavirus, and some types of masks can help prevent their wearers from catching the virus. Education Department files cease and desist complaint against Florida over mask-related school fundingYet debates still rage in multiple countries over their use, and some regions have recently removed mandates that people wear them in crowded spaces.Read More"Masks remain a symbol of a divided society -- between those who feel...
    Boris Johnson today urged Xi Jinping to 'step up' China's ambitions on tackling climate change.  The Prime Minister spoke to the Chinese President on the phone this morning after Beijing confirmed he will not be attending the COP26 summit in person but will address his fellow world leaders via video link.  China has dashed hopes of significant progress being made at the summit in Glasgow after it recommitted to its old climate goals and failed to set out any additional ones.  China is the biggest emitter of CO2 in the world and its formal submission ahead of COP26 restated its goal of achieving 'carbon neutrality' by 2060 despite other nations urging Beijing to go further.   A Downing Street summary of the phone call with President Xi said Mr Johnson had 'acknowledged' China's plans to tackle climate change.   A Number 10 spokesman added: 'He emphasised the importance of all countries stepping up their ambition on climate change at COP26 and taking concrete action to cut emissions and expedite the transition to renewable energy, including phasing out coal.' Downing Street also said the...

    Lil Nas X joked on Instagram Live this Saturday that he'd been 'working on' a song with 38-year-old rapper Lil Boosie, aka Boosie Badazz. After getting wind of the claim, Boosie launched into a homophobic rant against the 22-year-old hitmaker on Twitter, where he suggested the 'world would be a better place' if he committed suicide. Instead of firing back at Boosie, Lil Nas X put his sense of humor to good use and penned a clever indirect response to the drama on his own Twitter account.

    California's Los Angeles and Long Beach ports in San Pedro Bay - which move about 40 percent of shipped cargo entering the U.S. - are ranked among the worst in the world, falling behind third-world countries such as Kenya and Ghana. The Los Angeles port ranked 328 of the 351 ports listed in the World Bank and IHS Markit’s 2020 Container Port Performance Index. Its grade was worse than the port in Lome, Togo, which is among the world’s poorest countries. Long Beach’s port faired even worse, landing at the 333rd spot a few places behind Kenya’s Mombasa port. Both ports slide below the ranking of the Ghana's Tema port, listed in the 261st spot.  The poor rankings come as massive backlogs continue to disrupt the supply chain ahead of the holidays and threaten to continue the logjam into the 2022, and thousands of freight containers sit idly on more than 100 vessels that simply don't have anywhere to unload. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden said Thursday he is considering sending in the National Guard to alleviate supply chain issues and drive...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Days shy of his 86th birthday, Robert A. Caro has reached the point where his own life is a piece of history. The New-York Historical Society has established a permanent exhibit dedicated to Caro, winner of two Pulitzer Prizes and many other honors for his epic biography of Robert Moses, “The Power Broker,” and his ongoing series on President Lyndon Johnson. The exhibit, “Turn Every Page,” begins Friday and draws upon Caro’s archives, which he donated to the society in 2020. It includes videos, photographs, draft manuscripts, reporters notebooks, an outline he keeps on the wall of his office, newspaper clippings and such everyday items as a Smith-Corona typewriter. Walking through the exhibit on a recent morning, Caro explains that his only dream growing up was to be a writer, “maybe a well known writer.” The wall displays on the second floor of the society trace his evolution from editor of his high school newspaper, The Horace Mann Record, to his years as an investigative reporter for Newsday, to his famously lengthy and detailed books.

    Hannah Gadsby has called out Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos for 'dragging her' into 'his mess' after he referenced her in a statement defending Dave Chappelle's stand-up special 'The Closer' amid accusations of transphobia and bigotry. In an Instagram post on Friday, the Australian comedian, who has two comedy specials on the streaming platform that cover homophobia and sexism, offered a scathing response to Sarandos.  Referencing a memo sent to employees that suggested Chappelle and Gadsby's programs offer diverse content to ensure 'marginalised communities aren't defined by a single story', the 43-year-old said she's been 'subjected' to hate online.

    TIMO Werner returned to Chelsea after shooting Germany to next year’s World Cup Finals.  But now Blues fans will get to see if the striker can be the player they thought they had signed - or return to being a pale imitation. 3The Chelsea forward fires home Germany's third goal to seal their place in QatarCredit: Getty 3Werner celebrates after scoring his first and Germany's second against North MacedoniaCredit: AFP Werner’s struggles to impose himself at Stamford Bridge since his £47m arrival, both under Frank Lampard and then Thomas Tuchel, have been painful to watch. The fleet-footed goal machine of his days in the Bundesliga with Leipzig has appeared at times a mirage. Instead, Chelsea fans have seen a striker whose efforts to stay onside have been close to painful, with his confidence in front of goal equally wafer-thin. Despite making 60 appearances for a Blues side that won the Champions League and finished fourth in the Prem, the 25-year-old has scored just 14 goals and the capture of Romelu Lukaku put his future in SW6 under scrutiny. But Tuchel...

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle today announced they are moving into banking by putting money into an investment firm called Ethic, whose owners are self-styled 'hippies' managing a $1.3billion Wall Street fund. The Sussexes, who experts believe are well on the way to building a $1billion brand in the US, have been appointed 'impact partners' at Ethic, a New York-based fintech asset manager pumping money into companies with what they deem acceptable environmental and social goals.  Harry and Meghan's latest move into big business came after their deals with Netflix and Spotify and the couple announced their latest tie-up with a statement that said: 'When we invest in each other we change the world'. Ethic claims to only invest in businesses that meet its 'social responsibility criteria', including on racial justice, climate issues and workplace standards including equal and fair pay.  In a joint interview with the New York Times, Meghan, a multi-millionaire former actress, said: 'From the world I come from, you don't talk about investing, right? You don't have the luxury to invest. That sounds so fancy.'She added: 'My husband...
    STAR Trek actor William Shatner is to be launched into space — and will become the world’s oldest astronaut. The 90-year-old, who played Captain James T Kirk in the sci-fi series, will blast off for real next week on billionaire Jeff Bezos’ willy-shaped rocket. 4William Shatner is to be launched into space — and will become the world’s oldest astronaut Shatner, who famously said “to boldly go where no man has gone before” at the start of each episode, revealed yesterday: “I’ve heard about space for a long time now. "I’m taking the opportunity to see it for myself. What a miracle.” The Canadian added: “I’m going to be a ‘rocket man’!” He will climb aboard the New Shepard rocket from Blue Origin — the space company founded by Bezos, the world’s richest man. The Amazon founder, 57, was launched into space on it in July — but the trip was ridiculed as his vessel resembled a giant penis. Shatner will blast off with three other crew members at West Texas on October 12 for a ten-minute flight....

    A FAMILY-of-four has converted an old school bus into a fully-equipped motor home in just two months, doing all the work themselves to keep costs low and adding extras like a unique indoor climbing wall. Elizabeth Stone, 29, and her partner, Spike Stone, 30, from Rhode Island, US, always wanted to travel the world with their children, five-year-old Pepper, five, and Violet, three. 4The couple took on the task of transforming the old school busCredit: Jam Press 4The DIY transformation was amazingCredit: Jam Press 4The children are very happy in their new homeCredit: Jam Press With the parents working remotely and their children learning through homeschooling during lockdown, they decided to take the opportunity to go on a family adventure.

    A WOMAN has sparked fury online after "kicking" a terrified sea lion off her boat and into killer whale-infested waters. The woman, posting to the TikTok account @nutaball, captured the petrified animal's ordeal near her home on Vancouver Island, Canada. 4Fearing for her own safety the woman 'kicked' the sea lion off her boatCredit: TikTok 4A pod of killer whales circled the woman's boatCredit: TikTok At the beginning of the first now-deleted video, the sea lion startles the woman after jumping on board. "Oh my goodness, I don’t know what to do," she says shocked. "Where did you come from? I never even seen you out there? Where did you come from? Holy f***.” Then, in the distance, she spots a pod of killer whales making their way towards her vessel - seemingly in pursuit of the sea lion. "You have to go, you can’t be here," she can be heard saying to the sea lion in a panicked tone. In a different video filmed later, the woman confronts the seal before scaring it off the boat.

    EAST SIDE — The viaducts underneath the Chicago Skyway feature pockmarked walls, glass-strewn sidewalks, rusted support columns — and now, world-class graffiti from local and national artists. The Meeting of Styles made its latest stop in Chicago Friday through Sunday. The traveling, international gathering of graffiti artists, which began in 1997 at the Schlachthof Wiesbaden in Germany, brought a few dozen new murals to the East Side neighborhood. Families, older residents and police officers were among those admiring the art on the viaducts at 99th and 100th streets, Ewing Avenue and Avenues J and L through the weekend-long event.

    Rich Fury, Jean Baptiste Lacroix, Amy Sussman/Getty Images CBS is completely reworking the upcoming series The Activist after the original model for the competition show received a wave of intense backlash. “The Activist was designed to show a wide audience the passion, long hours, and ingenuity that activists put into changing the world, hopefully inspiring others to do the same,” read the Wednesday statement, first reported by Variety. “However, it has become apparent the format of the show as announced distracts from the vital work these incredible activists do in their communities every day. The push for global change is not a competition and requires a global effort.” The series, originally set to premiere on Oct. 22, was first described by Hugh Evans, CEO and co-founder of Global Citizen, which is a producing partner for the show, as “a first-of-its-kind competition series that will inspire real change.” The six competitors on The Activist, aka the activists, were originally set to fight for a chance to lobby world leaders at the G20 — their campaigning efforts judged by Usher, Julianne Hough, and Priyanka...
    Almost 300 birds died and 30 were injured in less than 24 hours after hitting the World Trade Center's glass towers in New York City.  Hundreds of songbirds died after flying into several of the World Trade Center towers, leaving piles of carcasses lying on the sidewalk.  The collisions were blamed on the skyscrapers' lights being left on and their reflective glass, which confuses the birds into flying into them.  Melissa Breyer, a volunteer bird collision monitor for New York City Audubon, counted 291 dead birds on Tuesday morning within 65 minutes of walking around WTC Three and Four.  I did this for 65 minutes straight doing one loop around @4WTC and @3NYWTC ¿ most of these before sunrise. Please can we turn off lights during migration??? pic.twitter.com/pCXoJkUXo0— Melissa Breyer (@MelissaBreyer) September 14, 2021 Volunteer bird collision monitor Melissa Breyer picked up 291 dead birds (pictured) with her bare hands outside the World Trade Center towers She told the New York Post that she typically only sees 15 to 20 birds on her trips, but was shocked to find...
    Former President Donald Trump issued a scathing statement on Monday tearing into former President George W. Bush over his speech commemorating the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks where he condemned 'violent extremists' - both at home and abroad. 'So interesting to watch former President Bush, who is responsible for getting us into the quicksand of the Middle East (and then not winning!), as he lectures us that terrorists on the “right” are a bigger problem than those from foreign countries that hate America, and that are pouring into our Country right now,' Trump said shortly after noon on Monday. 'If that is so, why was he willing to spend trillions of dollars and be responsible for the death of perhaps millions of people? He shouldn’t be lecturing us about anything.' He went on to lambast Bush's legacy and invoked the twin towers collapse that killed more than 2,600 people that day.  'The World Trade Center came down during his watch. Bush led a failed and uninspiring presidency. He shouldn’t be lecturing anybody!' Trump wrote.  But Bush's speech...
    The 'real-life Tarzan' who lived in the Vietnamese jungle for 40 years has died of liver cancer aged 52 - eight years after he returned to the 'civilised world'.    Ho Van Lang succumbed to the illness last Monday after surviving 41 years in the jungle with his father who fled into the wilderness when US bombing during the Vietnam War killed half his family.   The pair re-established contact with Vietnamese society in 2013 and believed the Vietnam War was still raging on when they entered a village and sought medical help for Lang's father Ho Van Thanh. Thanh, then a soldier, fled with his infant son to the jungle during the war in 1972 after he lost his wife and two of his children in bombing.  The father-son duo lived for decades in the forest of what is now known as the Tra Bong District before they were found by locals looking for firewood.   The 'real-life Tarzan' Ho Van Lang, who lived in the Vietnamese jungle for 40 years has died of liver cancer aged 52 - eight years after...
    New York's new Governor Kathy Hochul sat front row at New York Fashion Week last night, and used the opportunity to announce a partnership between New York State and NYFW aimed at bolstering the fashion industry after the economic upset of the pandemic. The 36-year-old politician, who last month replaced her old boss Andrew Cuomo in the state's top job, snagged a seat of honor at Prabal Gurung’s show in Battery Park — which the state offered up for his use, free of charge.   Speaking to Vogue at the event, Hochul said she appreciates how Gurung creates clothes for women who are powerful but still feminine — something that resonates with her. 'We can dress up and celebrate what makes us unique but also have our proper place in the worlds of power, whether it’s in politics, whether it’s in the private sector, non-profits — wherever,' she said. 'Women need to step into the space that is rightfully theirs that has been denied them far too long.' New York's new Governor Kathy Hochul sat front row at New York Fashion...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki mocked Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Wednesday over his defense of his state's restrictive new abortion law and said now it's 'even more imperative' to protect women's rights across the country.  At a bill signing for the state's new election security legislation, a reporter asked Abbott why the state would 'force' victims of heinous sex crimes like rape and incest to give birth. 'It doesn't require that at all, because obviously it provides at least six weeks for a person to be able to get an abortion,' Abbott replied. 'That said, however, let's make something very clear - rape is a crime, and Texas will work tirelessly to make sure that we eliminate all rapists from the streets of Texas.'  Psaki was asked about Abbott's comments at Wednesday's White House briefing. 'If Governor Abbott has a means of eliminating all rapists or all rape from the United States, then there would be bipartisan support for that,' Psaki said dryly. 'But given there has never in history of the country, in the world, been any...
    A former NASA engineer has spent a year building the world's tallest slime volcano that sent a tower of green goo exploding 250ft into the sky.  Mark Rober spent twelve months designing the volcano after breaking the world record in an attempt last year which saw red goo soar to 60ft. But Rober has smashed his own record using a 'bomb proof' five ton steel volcano, which he spent a year designing, in a recent second attempt in Gridley, California.  Footage shows the YouTuber watching as the bright green plume of elephant toothpaste shoots 250ft in the air during a surprise for young blood cancer sufferer Brody.   The stunt is part of a chemical reaction with hydrogen peroxide, dish soap, and yeast in warm water.   A former NASA engineer has spent a year building the world's tallest slime volcano that sent a tower of green goo exploding 250ft into the sky Former NASA engineer Mark Rober managed the stunt in Gridley, California Video shows Rober and Brody watching as the green plume of elephant toothpaste erupts in...
