    More than 200,000 people have signed a petition to demand that two brothers are freed after they were charged with murder and had their bond set at $1million for reportedly killing their stepfather when they found out he was raping their nine-year-old half-sister. In just two days, 204,000 signatures were collected to call for the release of Christian and Alejandro Trevino, 17 and 18, and their friend and alleged accomplice Juan Eduardo Melendez, 18, from the Hidalgo County Jail.  Christian, Alejandro and Juan were arrested by the Pharr Police Department in Pharr on Saturday for the brutal killing of Gabriel Quintanilla, 42, last Thursday.  The Trevino brothers are said to be half-brothers from the same father.  'We ask that the state of Texas to release these teenagers, who could possibly spend the rest of their life in prison for protecting their sister,' Carlos Eduardo Espina, who started the petition, wrote on Change.org.  'The three teenagers are currently in custody and have their bonds set at over 1 million dollars each. If convicted of capital murder, they face a minimum sentence of life...
    American diplomats have expressed fears that any sanctions imposed on Russia over potential conflict in Ukraine would ultimately be ineffective due to the amount of Russian wealth in London. The US, UK and a host of other NATO countries have promised to impose harsh sanctions on Russia should President Vladimir Putin proceed with an invasion of neighbouring Ukraine, and have delivered arms shipments to bolster Ukrainian forces.  But US authorities are now concerned that Britain's threats to levy tough economic penalties against Putin are empty after years of allowing Russian kleptocrats to funnel what sources described as 'a hell of a lot of money' into 'Londongrad'. 'The fear is that Russian money is so entrenched in London now that the opportunity to use it as leverage against Putin could be lost,' a source in Washington told The Times. 'Biden is talking about sanctioning Putin himself but that can only be symbolic', the source asserted, claiming that billions in Russian cash is 'sitting in houses in Knightsbridge and Belgravia right under your government's noses.' It comes after a report by the...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Twin Cities nonprofits say they’re upset, frustrated and concerned regarding the alleged $200 million fraud from an organization claiming to be one of their own. Last Thursday, Federal agents raided nearly a dozen homes and workplaces linked to Feeding Our Future — a nonprofit claiming to be feeding tens of thousands of hungry kids. According to an affidavit, an investigation into the group’s spending shows allegedly none of the money was spent on children — rather on cars, homes and more.

Couldn’t believe that they were right down the street from us,” said Cathy Maes, who serves as the executive director for Loaves and Fishes. “I couldn’t even understand the dollar amounts that I was reading in the newspaper. That’s not real.” Loaves and Fishes, based on Minneapolis’ northeast side, served more than four million meals in 2021. Many of those meals were funded by the same USDA programs that Feeding Our Future allegedly defrauded, Maes says. “[The programs...
    AN x-Walmart worker has claimed that the supermarket's cakes are not freshly made. A TikTok user who claims to have worked at the bakery in Walmart made a shocking claim that all of the superstore's sheet cakes come from a freezer. 2According to a TikTok, Walmart receives baked items on a freezer truck, then they're held in the store's freezer until ordered by a customerCredit: Getty 2Kat Marie was responded to a Tiktoker's question of 'tell me a company secret that you can share because you don't work there anymore'Credit: TikTok Kat Marie (@kazmarie13) says in the post that for custom jobs, the Walmart bakery thaws out pre-made, frozen sheet cakes. “The reason you have to give so much notice before getting a cake that is custom decorated is not because that’s how long it takes them to bake the cake,” the user says in the video.  “It’s because that’s how long it takes the frozen sheet cake to thaw out. Nothing is actually baked in the bakery, it’s warmed up from frozen.” The video caption states that the...
    The U.S. Army's 'pan-coronavirus' vaccine, that should be effective against all strains of the virus - current and future - has begun human trials. ABC News reports that the shot showed promise in initial trials in monkeys, and has now started to be tested in people. The proposed jab would not only be effective against Covid, and all of its variants, but also other types of the virus like SARS-CoV and other potential mutations of the coronaviruses that could emerge as well. Clamors for a more universal vaccine has loudened in recent weeks, as the Omicron variant became a clear example of how the virus can mutate and suddenly strike a highly vaccinated population that feels safe from the virus. The U.S. Army has started human trials of a coronavirus 'super-vaccine' that is effective against all strains of the virus, past and future. The jab showed promise in monkey trials, and is now moving to the next stage. Dr Anthony Fauci said earlier this month that the jab is necessary, but it still could be years until it is available.

    TYSON FURY has mocked Eddie Hearn over claims from the boxing promoter that the Gyspy King 'pulled out' of an undisputed title fight against Oleksandr Usyk. Usyk is currently contracted to a rematch with AJ, having beaten the British superstar in September for the WBA, IBF and WBO belts. 1Tyson Fury has laughed off Eddie Hearn's claims that he dodged a fight against Oleksandr Usyk Tyson Fury’s response to Eddie Hearn’s comments today…[???? @Tyson_Fury] pic.twitter.com/OMRy33VAJI— Michael Benson (@MichaelBensonn) January 27, 2022 But Middle Eastern backers were leading talks for the Ukrainian to instead face WBC champion Fury in a historic four-belt unification.

    The Department of Defense issued a chilling warning on Thursday that a Russian invasion into Ukraine 'could be imminent' amid a drastic increase in combat forces at the former Soviet state's borders. 'We continue to see, including in the last 24 hours, more accumulation of credible combat forces arrayed by the Russians in, again, the western part of their country and in Belarus,' Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said at a press conference.  Kirby also revealed that troops from Fort Bragg, Fort Carson and Fort Campbell have been placed on heightened alert to deploy to Eastern Europe as tensions in the region compound.  The US State Department has said it anticipates an attack on Ukraine launched by the Kremlin in as early as mid-February. Asked about the Defense Department's timeline, Kirby said: 'We have always said and said for quite some time, another incursion by Russia could be imminent -- and imminent means imminent.' He declined to give a specific timeline but added that there was no 'final decision' by Vladimir Putin to send his military into Ukraine. 'We believe here...

    Notably, Biden served as a member on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma where he received more than $80,000, per the New York Post, in monthly compensation. It is believed that Hunter Biden was awarded this position on Burisma’s board solely for the sake of his connections to then-Vice President Joe Biden. Hunter Biden’s business dealings and personal affairs were a source of such intense scrutiny during the 2020 presidential election that Twitter and Facebook prevented users from sharing articles that detailed the contents of his recovered laptop’s hard drive that could implicate his father. In Miranda Devine’s recent book, titled “Laptop from Hell,” she speculates that Joe Biden, himself, benefited directly from his son’s shady business dealings. It is believed that “the big guy” receiving 10% of Hunter’s income from these dealings was his father, Joe Biden. After his father became President of the United States, Hunter began a career as a professional painter. Each of his works sell for several thousand dollars apiece. His debut art show was held at the prestigious...
    KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) — Family members of women in a sober living group home who were killed and injured in a fiery van crash last year are suing a car company and the group home, saying the 2002 Dodge Ram was prone to tipping over and was not properly maintained. Just before the April crash, a vehicle ahead of the passenger van unexpectedly changed lanes on a Georgia interstate, police said at the time. The van then went out of control, rolled onto its side and slid across two lanes, bursting into flames and killing six women inside, police said in an accident report. Ten survivors of the crash were taken to hospitals. Flames grew rapidly as bystanders tried to save the motorists from the burning van, witnesses recounted later. Many of the victims were part of a sober living community called We Are Living Proof, a group named as one of the defendants in a half-dozen lawsuits. They were filed this week in Gwinnett County, where the wreck happened along Interstate 85 northeast of Atlanta. The organization referred calls...

    Four employees at an automation company in Allendale were sickened by a noxious odor that brought emergency responders on Thursday, authorities said. A 911 call came in from the Commerce Drive headquarters of Control Associates at 12:50 p.m., Allendale Police Chief Michael T. Dillon said. The caller "reported that a few employees had felt ill," the chief said. Allendale police, firefighters and EMS were among the responders. They were told that the odor was first detected on Wednesday, Dillon said. EMS evaluated the four employees, who didn't require further attention. Firefighters conducted an extensive search, deemed the situation under control and turned the building back over to management, who the chief said "will continue to monitor possible causes of the odor."
    A WOMAN took the new year as an opportunity to show off her epic transformation. While she certainly looks great before and after her transformation, several people said the same thing about her new look. 3A woman named Kayla shared the difference a year can make in her transformation videoCredit: TikTok/Kmall6 3Many people commented on Kayla's more mature appearanceCredit: TikTok/Kmall6 The woman, only named Kayla on TikTok, posted a video of her glow-up that has since brought in a whopping 14.2 million views and 1.9 million likes.

She appeared to have a slimmer, paler face in the recent clip than in 2021, but people flocked to the comment section to point out another difference. Many users said Kayla looked much older after her transformation, such as one user who commented: "Went from 20 to 30 in the best possible way." Another wrote: "you went from high...
    Frazer Harrison, Jean-Baptiste Lacroix, Paras Griffin/Getty Images In separate statements, both Kim Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend Ray J have shut down Kanye West’s claim that he obtained a second sex tape of the duo. Speaking to Jason Lee for an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, West, now known as Ye, said that he received a copy of an unreleased sex tape and gave it to Kardashian to prevent it from leaking. “I went and got the laptop from Ray J myself that night,” he said. “I met this man at the airport, then got on a red-eye, came back [and] delivered it to her at 8 a.m. in the morning.” “She cried when she saw it. You know why she cried when she seen it on the laptop? Because it represents how much she’s been used,” he continued. “It represents how much people didn’t love her and they just saw her as a commodity.” West also claimed that he retrieved the laptop on the night of Kardashian’s Saturday Night Live debut, during which she shared a kiss with now-boyfriend Pete Davidson.  “How you gonna bring me to SNL and then kiss...
    It was hard to imagine even a decade ago that mainstream scientists would be prescribing hallucinogenic drugs to help treat mood disorders like depression. But after incremental gains at the state and local level, 2022 is the year treatments like ketamine therapy are poised to go mainstream. Still, the biggest obstacle to normalizing these kinds of drugs for psychiatric care is that they send patients down a psychoactive rabbit hole. That’s the whole point for many casual users, but not exactly an ideal solution for someone who wants to feel better but is also worried about their ability to work and run errands. The answer might be a psychedelic without all of the psychedelia. In a study published Thursday in the journal Science, a team of scientists from China designed a new drug they say acts in a similar fashion to LSD and psilocybin, but without leading to hallucinations. In trials on mice, the drug produced antidepressive effects without psychedelic ones. “Psychedelics have previously shown potential therapeutic effects in past clinical trials,” Sheng Wang, a biochemist with the Chinese...
    Cramer's Investing Club: Danaher once again delivers reliable earnings, and that's why we own the stock
    Reservoir Dogs star Michael Madsen revealed his son Hudson 'had typical life challenges that people have with finances' but did not 'see any signs of depression' before his suspected suicide at age 26. The actor, 64, revealed the last touching text message he received from his son as he spoke about the death himself for the first time in a statement obtained by The Los Angeles Times. 'I am in shock as my son, whom I just spoke with a few days ago, said he was happy — my last text from him was "I love you dad,"' he said. 'I didn't see any signs of depression. It's so tragic and sad. I'm just trying to make sense of everything and understand what happened,' he added.  Madsen said his son's marriage was 'going strong' and he had recently completed his first tour in the U.S. Army. Hudson was a sergeant stationed in Hawaii.   'He had typical life challenges that people have with finances, but he wanted a family. He was looking towards his future, so it's mind blowing. I just can't...
    A convicted felon serving federal prison time for a string of armed robberies in Connecticut has been indicted, again -- this time in a drunken-driving crash that killed a Rowan University senior nine years ago, NJ Advance Media reported. The DWI case has taken many twists and turns: Derrick D. Gilliam, 35, won an appeal of his homicide conviction last January on the grounds that police took an unwarranted draw of his blood at the hospital after the fatal crash, the outlet said. Matthew Uhl, 22, of Little Egg Harbor, was just two weeks away from college graduation when he was allegedly struck by Gilliam while walking with friends near Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity in Glassboro on April 12, 2013, according to multiple media reports. Currently, Gilliam, of Bridgeport, CT, is serving 10 years in federal prison for seven armed robberies one year after the fatal crash.  Gilliam and others were convicted of robbing banks, a CVS pharmacy, a Mobil gas station and a Residence Inn hotel in Connecticut, according to federal prosecutors. Gilliam was sentenced for those crimes in 2016....
    New York (CNN Business)The Covid era of free money is coming to an end. After dropping interest rates to zero in March 2020 to revive the economy, the Federal Reserve is shifting gears and going into inflation-fighting mode.Fed officials indicated Wednesday they plan to raise interest rates in March, launching a series of rate hikes for the first time since 2015.Americans will experience this policy shift through higher borrowing costs: No longer will it be insanely cheap to take out mortgages or car loans.

    Getty Adam Thielen urged the Vikings to keep wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell if they want Justin Jefferson to stay in Minnesots. Homegrown Minnesota Vikings receiver Adam Thielen knows he’s in the twilight of his career. He’s already passed the torch of WR1 off to second-year star wideout Justin Jefferson, whose 3,016 receiving yards and 196 catches are the most by any player in the first two years of their NFL career. And while Thielen braces for his third coaching staff shakeup in Minnesota, he recently gave a strong suggestion to ownership on a coaching decision that would keep Jefferson around in Minnesota in light of a history of talented receivers leaving the Vikings.

    Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade accused the Biden administration and federal contractors of “poisoning” America’s cities by relocating undocumented immigrants around the country. The comments came Thursday as Fox & Friends talked about newly-released footage from Westchester County Airport where immigrants were flown in last year as part of the government’s migrant resettlement program. The flights to Westchester and other parts of the country halted last year after being exposed by the media, and as the government turned its attention to resettling Afghan refugees. The footage, obtained by FOIA request and reported by New York Post, shows Police Sgt. Michael Hamborsky confronting federal contractors about the protocol irregularities and the secretiveness involved while they were in the process of transporting migrants. As Fox & Friends discussed the video’s implications, Kilmeade called the program “illegal behavior conducted by the White House, whom for some reason, thinks it’s more important to bring people from outside into America than it is to focus on the health and security of Americans.” After rolling footage of Republican lawmakers accusing Biden of “aiding and abetting” illegal immigration,...
    DES PLAINES, Ill. (AP) — A fire at a suburban Chicago apartment that killed four young girls and their mother last year was caused by two electrical cords that had been improperly spliced together, a fire official said. One cord was part of a space heater that had been the focus of the fire investigation from the outset, while the other was a heavy-duty extension cord plugged into a wall outlet, said Division Chief Dave Schuman of Des Plaines’ fire prevention bureau. Schuman said Wednesday that the space heater was inside the family’s second-floor apartment near a stairway and the extension cord was plugged into a kitchen outlet, The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reported. The Jan. 27, 2021, fire in Des Plaines trapped the victims inside because there was no safe exit other than the stairs, officials said at the time. The fire killed Cithlaly Zamudio, 25, and her daughters, Renata Espinosa, 6, Genesis Espinosa, 5, Allison Espinosa, 3, and Grace Espinosa, 1. Juan Manuel Espinosa, Zamudio’s husband and the girls’ father, wasn’t home when the fire occurred and he...
    President Joe Biden has an opportunity to appoint his first Supreme Court justice, replacing Stephen Breyer. Unfortunately, Biden is tainting his first pick for the U.S. Supreme Court with identity politics, after promising during his presidential campaign that he would pick a black woman. 'The president has stated, and reiterated, his commitment to nominating a Black woman to the Supreme Court and certainly stands by that,' said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki from the White House on Wednesday. This is never a good idea for any president, because it limits choices, undermines the person selected, and politicizes the court's role, signaling that justices are supposed to serve certain political constituencies by their rulings. The White House has injected more politics into the process when they leaked that Breyer is retiring, even though the justice has not announced whether and when he will in fact leave the court. If the rumors are true, then the Biden White House's insult of Breyer by this egregious breach of protocol is yet another blunder plaguing the increasingly unpopular American president. However, Biden is...
    IT LOOKS like WhatsApp is lining up a major overhaul of its app for users on iPhone and Android. Testers have been sent an early version of an upcoming update that introduces a major change in how you send photos to your friends and family. 1WhatsApp appears to be working on a major new featureCredit: Alamy The change was uncovered on Wednesday by WABetaInfo, a tech website with a strong track record of uncovering WhatsApp features before they launch.

    BLOOD in your urine is not something to brush under the carpet. It could be absolutely nothing, but is unusual and so is worth at least keeping an eye on. 1Looking out for key signs in your urine could help get ahead of a diagnosisCredit: Getty - Contributor Spotting blood in your pee could be a sign of something wrong with an organ. It can be a sign of cancer in your bladder, prostate or kidney and so is always worth mentioning to an expert. People who are on certain medication could see it more regularly, with it being no cause for concern. But regardless, if you see it in the loo, you need to double check it with a doctor.

    NurPhoto | NurPhoto | Getty Images One hedge fund got the GameStop trade just about perfectly right last year — buying it under $10 and selling when the meme stock peaked. The sell signal it used? An Elon Musk tweet. That's how 2021's top-performing hedge fund Senvest Management was able to notch $700 million in profit from GameStop and bring its annual return to over 85%. The trade was the firm's single best in its 25 years in existence. "His piling on with that tweet for us was…we all looked at each other, and thought how do you top that?," said Richard Mashaal, Senvest Management's founder, CEO and co-CIO. "And so for that, for us, that signified peak momentum and we proceeded to exit the rest of our position."  The Tesla CEO tweeted "Gamestonk!!" on Jan. 26 after the bell.

    Mysterious 'finger-like' solar-flares seen falling into the sun in 1999, rather than out of it as would be expected, have finally been explained by scientists. Typical solar flares, which are giant eruptions from the surface of the sun, blast outward, like a giant tentacle, but in January 1999 astronomers saw one burst down, back towards our host star, something that left scientists guessing for two decades.  In a new study, experts found that these unusual flares, dubbed 'downward-moving dark voids', are the result of fluids of different densities not being able to mix.   Researchers, from Harvard University, say this discovery could help create more accurate space weather forecasts, and limit damage from eruptions reaching Earth.   The Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) onboard NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a supra-arcade downflow within a solar flare on June 18, 2015 Study lead author, Dr Chengcai Shen, set out to investigate what caused the strange eruptions, what was driving them and whether they were tied to magnetic reconnection, a leading theory behind their release. Magnetic reconnection is when fast moving radiation is released after...
    A man claims his daughter, a Hispanic woman pushing CRT and who introduced 'math ethnic studies' into Seattle Public Schools, has fabricated a life of hardship to help push her agenda, likening her to notorious race faker Rachel Dolezal.  Tracy Castro-Gill, 47, identifies herself as a 'Xicana' who overcame adversity to lead Ethnic Studies at Seattle Public Schools, where she had earned $93,000 a year - but her father Rick Castro claims she 'can't speak Spanish' and had a very comfortable middle-class upbringing.  Castro-Gill, who also describes herself as gender-neutral in her Twitter profile, quickly became a controversial figure in 2019 after she accused some her colleagues of racism and introduced a K-12 Math Ethnic Studies Framework, which claimed math was 'used to disenfranchise people and communities of color,' according to the course curriculum.  Castro, who is half Mexican, alleges that his daughter was lying about her deep roots with California's Latino culture and growing up in poverty. 'Everything since [Tracy] moved to Seattle has been one big lie,' Rick told Daily Wire reporter Luke Rosiak, according to an excerpt of the...

    Gay and bisexual men were today warned about the rapid spread of a superbug that is being spread through sex. UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) bosses have spotted a huge spike in cases of an 'extremely' antibiotic-resistant version of shigella sonnei.  The gut infection can cause diarrhoea, stomach cramps and a fever. Some patients will need to be hospitalised.  Forty-seven cases of the infection were reported in the four months from September to December. For comparison, just 16 were logged over the previous 17 months, from April 2020 to August 2021.  Shigella is endemic in England, and triggers thousands of infections each year.  Health chiefs have been tracking the particular strain that has prompted the warning since 2018. Effective treatment options are 'limited' for the strain, the UKHSA warned today.

    Jaclyn Smith knows she looks good – but the star does have a secret behind those heavenly features. The "Charlie’s Angels" alum went viral in December when she posted a photo of herself embracing her son Gaston Richmond. Many of her followers pointed out how the 76-year-old looked younger than the 39-year-old. "I’ll tell you, it was a good photo," the actress admitted to Page Six on Thursday. "Right place, right time," she shared. "That’s the luck of the draw. Great lighting. I’m with a person that I adore my son, and it was a going-away party, so my eyes were probably glistening with tears there, sparkling because he’s one of the human beings I worship." ‘CHARLIE’S ANGELS’ STAR JACLYN SMITH, 76, ‘LOOKS YOUNGER’ THAN HER SON GASTON IN RARE PHOTO: ‘MY SON-SHINE!’ Actress Jaclyn Smith shared the story behind that viral photo.

    THEY might be two of the most famous people on the planet - but underneath it all, Prince William and Kate Middleton are just like any other ordinary couple. And like any husband and wife who have together for almost 20 years, they both apparently have habits that drives the other one up all the wall. 1NINTCHDBPICT000703221943Credit: Getty In 2018, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were visiting an RAF base in Cyprus when Prince William spotted a yellow sofa in the staff's common room. Speaking from experience, he joked to the team: "Keep the pizza off the sofas!" Not letting him get away with the cheeky comment, Kate then exposed her husband for doing the exact same thing at home.

    YAMHILL, Ore. (AP) — Former New York Times journalist Nicholas Kristof traded the concrete canyons of Manhattan and the ritzy New York suburb of Scarsdale for his old family home, located on a dirt road in Oregon, to run for governor. But Kristof, who won two Pulitzer Prizes, including for reporting on China’s failed 1989 pro-democracy movement, was declared ineligible for the seemingly simplest of reasons: He hadn’t lived in Oregon long enough. Kristof has gone to the state Supreme Court to fight the Jan. 6 decision. The justices begin deliberating the matter Thursday. During an interview at his farm on the outskirts of the tiny town of Yamhill (population 1,000), Kristof spoke with concern about the plight of neighbors he had grown up with after moving here when he was 12. Some are barely hanging on financially. Some have died from drugs, suicide and obesity. One froze to death while homeless. “At The New York Times, I had a very good tool box to call attention to problems, but it wasn’t a toolbox to fix them,” Kristof said...
    U.S.A. researchers have developed a small device that provides information about the presence of a virus in a room. It is necessary for some places to control the circulation of the virus. It’s a kind of small device like an air diffuser badge. But instead of making your living room fragrant, it analyzes the air around it and, above all, can alert you if it detects the presence of Sras-CoV-2 virus in the room. Researchers at the Yale School of Public Health (YSPH) have developed this handheld device that can be useful for workers in high-risk environments such as health facilities and restaurants. “With this device, the virus can detect less than the estimated level of infection of SARS-CoV-2,” said Crystal Gothry Polit, assistant professor of epidemiology (environmental health science) at YSPH. “This device is aimed at preventing the spread of the virus, which can occur when there is no early detection of exposure to the population.” During the study, the researchers matched 62 volunteers who wore the device for 5 days. 5 of them were...
    I have never seen the musical “Hamilton.” Shocking for such an active political person, I know. But as I reached out to friends with my concerns about the rules of secrecy around the Minneapolis mayor’s new workgroups — and their stipulations of silence for participants — I have had several friends quote the song, “The Room Where It Happens.” Everyone in Minneapolis deserves to have what they need to survive, someone to call when they need help, and to not fear the help that may come. I joined Mayor Jacob Frey’s Community Safety Workgroup six weeks ago with the hope to find common ground with others hoping to make Minneapolis safer, and to bring forth my years of work on alternatives to policing. I believe that it is possible to come together across differences to advance solutions that we can all agree on. And I expected disagreement on how to approach the issue of violent policing —  but it was my hope that a public workgroup would allow space for many options to be documented and shared for the public,...
    Yemoja, a marine ingredient startup, has announced that they are developing an ingredient out of red microalgae used to make vegan meat more realistic. This red microalgae gives vegan meat a red juiciness that is similar to the bloodiness of meat. It may not sound appetizing, but it can make a huge difference in how vegan meat is recognized among meat-eaters. Because the ingredient, called Ounje, is made from red algae, there is no need for artificial coloring. It is able to remain true to its color whether in raw form or when cooked, even congealing much like real meat juices do. It also is packed with nutrients that add to the nutritional value of the meat alternative. Amikam Bar-Gil, Ph.D., co-founder and CTO of Yemoja, said, “While working on a new formulation for cosmetic applications, we serendipitously discovered that this specific composition yields a substance that resembles blood in appearance and texture. Encouraged by the first test results, we decided to push the boundaries further and take it to the next level, trying it out in test products....
    One of last Christmas' hottest toys has proven to be just as much of a hit with adults as children, with dozens of grownups sharing videos of themselves using the 'magic' item on TikTok. The $69.99 Magic Mixies Magic Cauldron, which was released by Moose Toys in October, is certainly unique: The user puts several 'magic' ingredients into a cauldron, taps it with a wand, and — after the mist parts — extracts a brand new plush friend. Unsurprisingly, the toy was in high demand ahead of the holidays last year, selling out at several stores. But a month after Christmas, e-retailers like Target and Amazon are still struggling to keep it in stock as adult buy up their own Magic Mixies Magic Cauldrons, admitting they're 'so excited' despite being 'too old' for it.

    BRUSSELS -- Holocaust survivors and politicians warned about the resurgence of antisemitism and Holocaust denial as the world remembered Nazi atrocities and commemorated the 77th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp on Thursday."I have lived in New York for 75 years, but I still remember well the terrible time of horror and hatred," survivor Inge Auerbacher, 87, told the German parliament. "Unfortunately, this cancer has reawakened and hatred of Jews is commonplace again in many countries in the world, including Germany."Commemorations took place amid a rise of antisemitism that gained traction during lockdowns as the coronavirus pandemic exacerbated hatred online."This sickness must be healed as quickly as possible," Auerbacher said.German parliament speaker Baerbel Bas noted that the coronavirus pandemic has acted "like an accelerant" to already burgeoning antisemitism."Antisemitism is here - it isn't just on the extreme fringe, not just among the eternally incorrigible and a few anti-Semitic trolls on the net," she said. "It is a problem of our society - all of society."EMBED More News Videos Holocaust survivor Irene Butter warns we must stay vigilant...
    (CNN Business)Microsoft's nearly $70 billion deal to buy Activision Blizzard could make it a leader in gaming. But it also risks creating a new headache for the tech giant in a key part of its operations: corporate culture.For months, Activision Blizzard (ATVI) has been under pressure to overhaul its workplace culture. A July lawsuit from a California government agency alleged the gaming behemoth had enabled a "frat boy" culture and claimed leadership and human resources personnel had turned a blind eye to complaints raised by female employees. At the time, the company criticized the lawsuit as "distorted."A group of Activision Blizzard employees is demanding union recognitionNow, in addition to acquiring the company behind such popular video games as Call of Duty and World of Warcraft, Microsoft (MSFT) could also inherit numerous workplace issues. Activision Blizzard employees have staged walkouts over what they see as its inadequate response to overhaul a toxic workplace and called for the resignation of the company's CEO, Bobby Kotick. And they've already pledged to continue advocating for changes under new ownership. Beyond that, there's a group...
    A university has given a content warning to students reading JK Rowling's first Harry Potter book over 'difficult conversations about gender, race, sexuality, class, and identity'. The University of Chester's English Department sounded the klaxon to freshers on its Approaches to Literature module, led by Dr Richard Leahy. It even told them they could raise concerns with him if they had 'any issues' with the topics discussed.  Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is one of the course's three set literary texts alongside Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games and Philip Pullman's Northern Lights. The trigger warning seen by MailOnline tells students: 'Although we are studying a selection of Young Adult texts on this Module, the nature of the theories we apply to them can lead to some difficult conversations about gender, race, sexuality, class, and identity. 'These topics will be treated objectively, critically, and most crucially, with respect. If anyone has any issues with the content, please get in touch with the Module Leader to make them aware.' It comes after JK Rowling's views on transgender rights has seen her...
    A female-only app has come under fire for discriminating against transgender women with its facial recognition AI.  Giggle, a social network 'only for females', which launched in early 2020, has since been the subject of complaints from transgender women, who told the Verge, that their requests to join have been denied by the app's facial recognition system, because their features ware not 'feminine' enough. However, now Giggle's CEO Sall Grover, who is based in Queensland, has doubled down, claiming that there is no space on the app for 'men claiming to be women'.  Grover, who does not believe trans women are female, told Femail: 'The fact is, women of colour are on Giggle. Giggle is used by women of every race, religion and culture. The quality that Giggle users have in common is they are female.' Giggle, a social network that claims to be 'only for females' was slammed after trans women said they have been kept out of the app since it launched in early 2020. Its CEO Sall Grover, pictured, who is based in Queensland, doubled down this week...
    China has thrown its back behind Russia over Ukraine, warning the US that Putin's security demands must be 'taken seriously'.  Foreign minister Wang Yi told Secretary of State Antony Blinken that he should abandon his 'Cold War mentality' and engage in negotiations during a call today. The call took place just after Blinken had delivered a letter to Moscow, rejecting most of Putin's demands around Ukraine.  Wang Yi, China's foreign minister, has warned the US that Russia's security demands must be 'taken seriously' and urged Washington to abandon its 'Cold War mentality' 'All parties should abandon the Cold War mentality and form a balanced, effective and sustainable European security mechanism through negotiation,' Wang said. 'Russia's reasonable security concerns should be taken seriously and resolved.' In a nod to Moscow's concerns about the expansion of the NATO alliance in Europe Wang added that 'regional security cannot be guaranteed by strengthening or even expanding military blocs'. The exact contents of Blinken's letter to Putin are not being made public, but Blinken said it contains 'serious' offers to de-escalate tensions. These are said...
    WE’VE ALL heard of Amazon, but there’s a new use of the term and it’s one that you may not have come across before.  After a long and busy day, sometimes the last thing you want to do is jump under the duvet with your partner... if you get what we’re referring to.  2The Amazon position has got lots of people talking Well, the next time you're about to turn your partner down and roll over, why not give the Amazon position a go? Some sex positions look uncomfortable and as though they may be a bit of a challenge, but with the “Amazon”, you’ll be happy you switched things up from missionary.  After all, it promises some seriously intense orgasms. The position, which is sort of like a reverse missionary, has the woman on top. The man lies on their back, and for the most part, is chilling, letting the person on top take control. To get into this position, the man starts on their back and lifts their legs into a table top position.  Most read in LifestyleIT'S...
