Politicians on both sides of the aisles have hurled blame on each other for the civil unrest from dissatisfied Americans disillusioned by law enforcement and the federal government.   But on Sunday AG Barr leveled fresh attacks at Black Lives Matter protests and Democrats in an interview on Fox News' Life, Liberty & Levin. ...
    A finger of suspicion has been pointed at the world’s most expensive painting - because the hands are ‘too childish’ to have been painted by Leonardo da Vinci. Salvator Mundi sold for $450 million (£342 million) in 2017 but art expert Jacques Franck believes it is a ‘workshop Leonardo’ created by two of the artist’s assistants. The French historian argues that the fingers of Christ’s right hand which are held in the sign of the cross lack Da Vinci’s usual anatomical precision. ‘When the index and the middle finger are raised fully, one cannot bend the other fingers inside the palm extensively as observed in the Salvator Mundi’s blessing hand,’ he said. ‘It is therefore an unlikely movement.’ Salvator...

    An American man is being slammed on social media after admitting he stormed out on his wife immediately after hearing her cancer diagnosis — because he was angry at her for not having kids sooner, like he wanted. The 33-year-old man shared his story on Reddit, explaining that a doctor recently told his 32-year-old wife that she has ovarian cancer and will need a hysterectomy.

Should I try to strike up a friendship with her? How should I read this out-of-the-blue...

    Texas isn't including positive COVID-19 test results in its official tally if those positives come from rapid-result tests, meaning there could be tens of thousands more cases in the state than the official statistics report, according to the Houston Chronicle.

    The mother of a teenager who was shot dead in Seattle's CHOP zone has filed a lawsuit against the city after paramedics said it was too dangerous to help him. Donnitta Sinclair Martin is taking the city to court after her 19-year-old son Lorenzo Anderson died following the shooting in the occupied protest zone on June 20.  Paramedics said 'the risk was too high to commit our crews to respond without a police escort', while cops said they had been obstructed by a 'violent crowd' and were later told that CHOP's own 'medics' had taken Anderson to hospital.  Speaking to Q13 Fox in Seattle, Sinclair Martin said her son 'doesn't deserve to be dead... and then he doesn't deserve for the...
    Meghan Markle is giving 'punchier' speeches because she is not adhering to the 'constraints' of royal life, her biographer has claimed.  Royal expert Omid Scobie, author of Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan, and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, explained the Duchess of Sussex, 38, had more freedom to speak 'from the heart' on topics including racial injustice and gender equality now that she is living in Los Angeles.  He referred specifically to the Duchess of Sussex's recent address to the Girl Up Leadership Summit last week, for which she relied on loose bullet points, rather than the structured speech usually given to members of the royal family for public engagement.  Speaking on the Heirpod podcast, he said: 'This was...

    Most of “Yellowstone” season four will take place right on the Dutton ranch. Taylor Sheridan already revealed that season four would shoot exclusively in Montana during the coronavirus pandemic, and now we have some more details.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — St. Mel Catholic Church has been offering online services during the coronavirus pandemic to encourage their parishioners to follow local safety guidelines. This weekend, the Woodland Hills church also held Mass outside to allow congregants to enjoy some fresh air and resume worship in a way that’s allowed. California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s most recent order prohibits indoor church services, so that’s why an outdoor gathering like this could go on. “I was upset because I thought all the churches were closed,” said parishioner Rochelle Brillo. “I was really excited about going back to church. I really enjoyed it being under the sky and being able to see everything. I would actually do this again.” At Sunday’s...
    Donald Trump held his first tele-rally with Wisconsin supporters Friday as he bowed to pressure to shift his campaign trail virtually because of the 'Covid problem'. The president launched into a 22-minute ramble Friday night where he took a fresh aim at China over the coronavirus pandemic, blasted the 'radical left' for 'indoctrinating our children with hate' and warned that America will 'never recover' if he isn't voted in for a second term.   The telephone rally marked a major backpedaling for the president who last month plowed ahead with his controversial rally in Tulsa, despite pleas from health experts and local officials to call it off.  The decision to go ahead was costly, with a top local health official admitting...

    President Donald Trump's reelection operation won't operate much differently even though the man at the helm, Campaign Manager Brad Parscale, was demoted, an insider claims – adding that the president is really his own campaign manager.

    Nia Long. Greg Campbell/Getty Actress Nia Long told Insider about her experience auditioning for the 2000 movie "Charlie's Angels." She said her agent told her she didn't get the role of Alex Munday, one of the Angels, because she "looked too old" opposite costar Drew Barrymore. Previously, actress Thandie Newton said she turned down the Alex Munday role in the movie because the vision of the character was sexist and racist. Long told Insider she personally believes the reason she was given for not getting the role was a nice way of saying she's too Black for the part. Long is four years older than Barrymore.

    He’s shedding light on his alternative lifestyle. UK citizens might’ve imagined it was an especially creative anti-coronavirus measure when a man arrived at a Bristol shop recently wearing a shed on his head that blasts techno music, flashes disco lights and spouts fire. Identified by some media outlets as Michael Shedworth, the man prefers to bill himself simply as “Mr. Shedworth,” and claims this is merely his “way of life.” “This is my life,” the block-headed individual told Big Jubba’s “Yak Shak” music podcast in his first ever interview, which he conducted, fittingly enough, while sporting his bizarre head covering.

    Scientific studies have found that the more your income increases, the happier you are, up until US$75,000 (£60,000) a year.   But in a new analysis of 40,000 US adults, Professor Jean Twenge from San Diego University found an even deeper relationship between money and happiness. The study discovered that the difference in happiness by income level grew steadily larger from the 1970s to the 2010s.  That is to say, money can buy more happiness now than it could 50 years ago.  This is attributed, mainly, to the soaring cost of basic needs, such as housing and healthcare, which have outpaced inflation.  Professor Twenge wrote for The Conversation about how money and happiness are more strongly related than they were in the 1970s...
