Ben Shapiro apologises to Andrew Neil after being ‘destroyed’ in BBC interview

US pundit says he was not prepared for segment, which went viral after he cut it short The US conservative pundit Ben Shapiro has said he was destroyed by Andrew Neil in a TV debate in which he accused the veteran broadcaster of being a lefty before abruptly ending the interview. Neil, chair of the group that owns the rightwing magazine the Spectator, subjected Shapiro to a robust interrogation about previous remarks such as Israelis like to build, Arabs like to bomb crap, and highlighted his support for new hardline abortion laws in the state of Georgia. At this point in the BBC Politics Live broadcast, Shapiro, formerly of Breitbart, accused Neil of bias and suggested abortions after more than …

Trump Pardons Pat Nolan, Ex-GOP Lawmaker Nabbed In FBI ‘Shrimpscam’ Sting

Announcing the pardon on Wednesday, the White House praised Nolan for his “tireless” advocacy for criminal justice reform and victims’ rights. It was the second pardon of the day issued by Trump, who earlier Nolan expressed his gratitude for Trump’s pardon in a tweet. Nolan, who served as the leader of the Republican minority in the state assembly from 1984 to 1988, was nabbed in an FBI bribery sting dubbed “Shrimpscam” after he was secretly videotaped accepting two $5,000 checks from an undercover FBI agent. Nolan was later charged on six counts including racketeering, extortion and money laundering. To avoid the risk of a longer sentence, he pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering and ended up serving 25 months …

Black Dogs And Cats Are Last On The List For Adoption, I Want To Change That By Taking Beautiful Portraits Of Them

I’ve done a bit of research on this and there seem to be four major reasons that black dogs and cats are last on the list for potential adoptees – firstly, they don’t photograph well (I think these images disprove that point) which is tragic if you want to take over Instagram with your new pet (repeatedly smacks forehead against wall), secondly, black dogs can look intimidating and aggressive, thirdly, black cats are superstitiously unlucky (or should that be stupid-stitiously) and lastly, they are a bit plain and boring to look at. What. Evs. here. My Googling did reveal an interesting tip for shelters looking to encourage people to adopt their ‘boring’ black dogs and cats – place them with …

‘The Bachelorette’ Recap: We Found Jesus In The Shower

The BacheloretteBachelortearsI’m slightly more hopeful for despite the fact that I’m already mentally preparing myself to hear the phrase “Roll Tide!” no less than 1,000 times in this two-hour episode. In case anyone forgot, yes, Hannah B aka Alabama Hannah aka Little Miss Professional Runner-Up is the new Bachelorette! I feel like this season we might be in for a real treat and get a more down-to-earth, can’t-be-swayed-by-the-Flat-Tummy-Tea-deals type of Bachelorette, or we’ll get the type who won’t be able to speak words. As I said, a real treat! Just to set the mood for you guys, my dog, after seeing me break open a bottle of rosé and hearing the beginnings of Chris Harrison’s opening monologue, has already fled …

HS2 needs major rethink, say peers

But it said the scheme had put too much emphasis on cutting journey times and not enough on the economic impact on regions. Minister promises no ‘betrayal’ over HS2 High speed rail ‘will benefit Scotland’ It said the first phase of the project offered “little benefit” to northern cities, despite them being in most need of better rail infrastructure. And it said the second phase, which would improve journey times between Leeds and Sheffield, risked never going ahead because of spending overruns. “The northern sections of High Speed 2 must not be sacrificed to make up for overspending on the railway’s southern sections,” said Lord Forsyth, who chairs the committee.

Everything You Need to Know About The Jenelle Evans/David Eason Dog Fiasco Betches

Teen MomTeen Mom 2Here’s what went down. Last week, David Eason, Jenelle Evans’ husband, purposefully shot and killed their French bulldog Nugget in North Carolina where they live. He now could go to jail for up to 4 months, which honestly seems like too little for such a vile act. Jenelle claimed he killed the dog because it was being aggressive toward Ensley, their 2-year-old daughter, and that she was seriously considering pressing charges against him for it (makes sense). I would press charges if someone gave my dog a weird look on the sidewalk, so David deserves whatever punishment is coming his way.

China felt they were being beaten so badly in the recent negotiation that they may as well wait around for the next election, 2020, to see if they could get lucky [and] have a Democrat win, he said. Kudlow told Fox no more talks were planned but also said there was a strong possibility Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping will meet in Japan at [the] G20 summit at the end of June. In …

Huge Animals Should Have A Higher Risk Of Cancer So Why Don’t Whales?

There is a strange contradiction in nature known as Peto’s Paradox. Large, long-lived animals should be much more likely to get cancer than little critters that live fast and die young because they have more cells to mutate and more time for things to go wrong. But they aren’t. Our own cancer risk is 11-25 percent. An elephant’s, on the other hand, is just 5 percent. So what about the biggest creatures to ever grace our planet? Despite their immense size, whales are much better at avoiding cancer than us puny humans. A new study, published in the journal Molecular Biology and Evolution, helps us understand why. Northern Arizona University’s Marc Tollis and his team turned to the humpback whale …

Government warned over Brexit ferry payout

Scrapped Brexit ferry deals to cost millions Ferry case adds to list of Grayling mishaps The Eurotunnel case was brought after the government handed out three contracts worth more than £100m in total to Brittany Ferries, DFDS, and Seaborne Freight in December. These were to provide additional freight capacity on ferry services between Britain and mainland Europe in the event that a no-deal Brexit led to disruption at UK ports. The awards were not subject to a full public procurement process, which the DfT said was justified by “reasons of extreme urgency brought about by events unforeseen by the contracting authority”.

Photographer Captures Moped Delivery Drivers In Hanoi Before Theyre Banned

Two-wheeled vehicles such as motorcycles or scooters are the most popular means of transportation in Southeast Asia. If you ever visited a country like Vietnam, you probably noticed that’s the choice for many locals. In high-density cities such as Hanoi, these vehicles help locals navigate through narrow streets and tiny alleys, save time for parking as you don’t need to park them like a regular car and also are surprisingly useful for transporting cargo.

How Coca-Cola Controls The Health Research It Funds In Public Universities

Next time you read a scientific study, you might want to check who funded the research. It’s an open secret that many multinational companies dabble in the dark art of commercially funded research – especially health and nutrition research – and that has some worrying implications when it comes to transparency. A new study, published in the Journal of Public Health Policy, has shined a spotlight on soda moguls Coca-Cola and the provisions they use to control the scientific research they fund in public universities across North America. A team of policy and public health experts led by the University of Cambridge in the UK detail how Coca-Cola funds numerous piece of health research at public universities in the US and Canada, but maintains a clause in the …
