The PM has set herself a huge test

Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionTheresa May: MPs “have a duty” to deliver Brexit Twice my colleague in Paris asked the prime minister if she would resign if her Brexit plan is rejected by MPs again. Twice she completely swerved the question. You can watch the awkward moment above. You can’t blame her for wanting to avoid it. Theresa May is not exactly fond of revealing much in interviews in any case. And for her to go anywhere near tangling with her potential exit would have breathed even more fire into the frenzied speculation. And just for good measure, it is not exactly unusual, sadly, for politicians to ignore completely what they are actually asked. Image copyright …

Aspey added that his former lifeguard training probably …

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Hair Extensions Betches

Hair extensions—much like microblading, eyelash extensions, and fillers—have been making people hotter for years without you knowing. Now, in the age of Instagram, celebs and influencers alike are finally opening up about how they achieve their high-glam looks (not to mention their flawless no-makeup looks). The rise in hair extensions is particularly near and dear to me: six months ago, I cut off eight inches of hair in a moment of sleep-deprived lob-fever delirium. Since then, I’ve been trying everything short of Sugar Bear gummies to get my length back, a routine my friends finally got sick of hearing about and cut off with a simple question: why don’t you just get extensions? Hah! I thought at first. Extensions were …

Alyssa Milano proposed a sex strike to protest restrictive abortion laws but it kind of misses the point.

Alabama and Georgia have passed restrictive and possibly illegal abortion laws, and, no surprise, a lot of people are upset about it. Many Hollywood productions that shoot in Georgia are departing from the state in protest. Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams announced they will continue to shoot Lovecraft Country in Georgia, but the money they earn from the show will go straight to two charities working to overturn the law. But actress Alyssa Milano, who shoots Insatiable in Georgia, came up with probably the most attention-grabbing (and kind of problematic) way to protest the law. She called for a sex strike. Georgia’s new law forbids abortion when a heartbeat is detected, roughly six weeks into a pregnancy. Legal abortions after …

Michelle Obama Pens Emotional Mother’s Day Tribute To Marian Robinson

Michelle Obama paid homage to her mother Marian Robinson on Sunday, calling her “a sweet, witty companion” who “listened a lot more than she lectured.” People magazine’s upcoming issue, Obama praised Robinson’s parenting, stating that “when it came to raising her kids, my mom knew that her voice was less important than allowing me to use my own.” While she noted that by today’s standards, critics may call her mother’s somewhat hands-off parenting style too lenient, Obama explained that “the reality was far from that.” Obama echoed the kind words for Robinson in an Instagram post, sharing a photo of the two between her daughters, Malia and Sasha ― three generations in one image. “From an early age, she saw …

State Department condemns killing of American citizen in Nicaraguan prison

(CNN)The State Department condemned the killing of an American citizen being held in Nicaragua after a prison uprising, according to Nicaraguan and US officials. “We call for an immediate, thorough, and transparent investigation of Montes’s death. We reiterate our call for the unconditional release of all political prisoners. The United States will hold accountable the Ortega regime and Nicaraguan security forces involved in human rights abuses and violations,” she continued. The Nicaraguan government said Montes was part of a group of prisoners who apparently charged security guards and, after a scuffle, he was shot by a prison guard. The government also said he was shot in “self-defense.” “The death of US citizen Eddy Montes at the hands of prison authorities …

Iran’s regional proxies ensure it will never fight alone

From Lebanon and Syria to Iraq, Yemen, and the Gaza Strip, Tehran has significantly expanded its footprint over the past decade, finding and developing powerful allies in conflict-ravaged countries across the Middle East. Hezbollah is one of the most prominent members of the self-styled “axis of resistance,” armed groups with tens of thousands of Shiite Muslim fighters beholden to Tehran. Iran has used such groups in the past to strike its regional foes, and could mobilize them if the latest tensions with the United States lead to an armed conflict — dramatically expanding the battlefield. Here’s a look at Tehran’s allies in the Mideast: HEZBOLLAH The militia, whose Arabic name translates into “Party of God,” was established by Iran’s Revolutionary …

Woman’s viral thread about a stranger on the train asking her for help is a must-read.

via Shutterstock It’s hard enough asking for help from your closest friends and family, let alone a complete stranger. But for some people, relying on the kindness of strangers is a necessity. A woman recently shared an eye-opening thread on Twitter about how a stranger on the train who suffers from epilepsy reached out to her for help, and she complied. The woman, named Erynn Brook, initially shared the whole story as a distraction from her cat getting an ultrasound. I’m waiting on kitty ultrasound results and trying to distract myself a little bit so I’d like to tell you a story about something that happened last night, in the hopes that I can process my feelings around it. I …

The Moon Is Actively Shrinking Right Now, According To A New Study

During the 1972 Apollo 17 mission to the Moon, astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt had to maneuver their lunar rover in a zig-zag pattern over the stair-step cliffs of the Taurus-Littrow valley, measuring tens of meters high and extending for several kilometers. Now, experts believe they know what caused such dramatic differences in the lunar landscape: Moonquakes. According to a new study published in Nature Geoscience, the Moon shrinks as its interior cools, resulting in the loss of around 50 meters (150 feet) over the last several hundred million years. As it shrinks, the brittle lunar surface crust breaks to create “thrust faults” where one section of crust pushes up over another. “Our analysis gives the first evidence that these faults …

Watching for the Supreme Court to set the terms for the eventual Roe v. Wade showdown

Washington (CNN)Rapid and dramatic moves by states to ban abortion at six weeks of pregnancy, including Tuesday night’s vote in Alabama to pass the most restrictive abortion bill in the country, appear to set up an immediate fight over Roe v.

A Bro’s Breakdown Of Hannah B’s ‘Bachelorette’ Contestants Betches

I’m Jared Freid. I’m a 34-year-old comedian who loves The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. I love it so much, I live Instagram story every episode: @jaredfreid. As you can imagine, my father is v proud. V.  This is my annual preview for the season. I’ve been doing this preview for years. When I first started, Snapchat was just an app to see boobs and Instagram couldn’t help a person pay rent. Also, ABC would only give me a picture, a name, an age, where they were from, and a profession. I’d make massive assumptions based on that small amount of information and that was my preview. Then ABC was like, “Let’s interview these monsters” and suddenly my job got easier. …

How Millennials Are Changing The Way We Approach Weddings Betches

The sun is shining. The flowers are blooming. The weather is still unpredictable but just stable enough to convince people to host outdoor events without any kind of backup plan. It can all only mean one thing: wedding season is upon us. In news that should surprise no one but will probably anger baby boomers somewhere, millennials are changing up the way we approach weddings. Crazy, right? That an entirely new generation, more diverse than any to come before it and with different entirely socioeconomic backgrounds, might have a few differing opinions from people who got married 50 years ago? Progress is scary. To prepare for the seemingly endless parade of undying love we’re all about to embark on, we …
