China 's President Xi Jinping would not want Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to further invade Ukraine while the Olympics is underway in Beijing, Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman told a virtual event on Wednesday. Sherman attended the Kyiv-based Yalta European Strategy (YES) forum with former Estonia President Kersti Kaljulaid, who sought reassurances about NATO 's readiness to act, should Moscow take more escalatory steps. Some 100,000 Russian troops have been amassed along Ukraine's eastern border since last year. Asked to predict how the coming weeks would unfold, Sherman said: "Well, I don't know what's in President Putin's mind. There's only one person who knows that, and that's President Putin. I suspect even the people around him don't know what he ultimately will do." "I have no idea whether he's made the ultimate decision, but we certainly see every indication that he is going to use military force sometime, perhaps now and middle of … [Read more...] about China would not like Russia-Ukraine war during Olympics, Wendy Sherman says

SHE once went to work in a shop on the bus — and came back in a £1.5million Bugatti sports car. As the girlfriend of footie icon Cristiano Ronaldo, Georgina Rodriguez is one of the most followed women on social media. Her life in the lap of luxury is the subject of new Netflix documentary I Am Georgina , debuting on Thursday to mark her 28th birthday. Yet don’t expect a warts-and-all account of her rise from humble beginnings. Despite her hints at a tough upbringing, the show presents an airbrushed look at the life of the woman in the life of Manchester United’s Ronaldo . There is no mention of the rape allegations made against him in 2005 and 2009, which were later withdrawn; nor of tensions in her family amid claims from relatives the model has shut them out. Though she insists, “Nothing in life has come easy”, I Am Georgina is the telly equivalent of her Instagram account — showcasing a serene marriage, beautiful children and lavish spending. Recalling the … [Read more...] about ‘My life with Ronaldo is just like any other family’ Georgina Rodriguez shows huge £4.8m mansion and £5.5m superyacht
It’s the standard reaction whenever I tell someone new. Their eyes widen and I can see them mentally calculating the feelings of self-denial I must be wracked with. Then it comes… the bacon sandwich question. Or sometimes it’s about cheese or chocolate. Or, more specifically, how I can possibly live without them. And they rarely believe my answer, which is, of course: ‘Quite easily, thank you very much.’ There are very few foods I genuinely miss because there are so many good vegan alternatives. I’ve been vegan for about five years now and vegetarian long before that. I can’t even remember what bacon tastes like but the smell of it cooking turns my stomach – not to mention all that spitting fat. This month more than 600,000 people have signed up to take part in Veganuary – a record, organisers say. More than 2million people have pledged to give plant-based food a try since it launched in 2012. Of course, there’s more to being vegan than skipping the meat, eggs and … [Read more...] about I’ve been a vegan 5 years – when are people going to stop asking if I miss bacon sandwiches?
Photo-Illustration: Vulture. Photo: Dimension Films In December 1996, scary-movie fans got a Christmas treat. Wes Craven, the director who helped push horror to new thresholds of violence with The Last House on the Left and Nightmare on Elm Street , catalyzed another wave of evolution in the genre with Scream . Years after most audiences had tapped out following the glut of 1980s slashers, he and the young screenwriter Kevin Williamson introduced a fresh irreverence and a cast of hot, charismatic new faces. Those actors gave themselves over to the story so completely that they created a whole coterie of new screen icons — half of which are so enduring they’ve appeared in every entry in the franchise, including nü Scream , now in theaters. Over the course of four films, Neve Campbell’s Sidney Prescott became the most un-fuck-with-able horror heroine of all time. Gale, the snarky reinvention of the “best friend” trope who helped prove there need not only be one “final … [Read more...] about Matthew Lillard and Skeet Ulrich Answer All Our Questions About
Published 3 November 2015 Share close Share page Copy link About sharing Relatives of some of those who died in the Glasgow bin lorry crash have accused the Crown of misleading them. Two families have questioned whether the Crown Office was aware of all the evidence when they made the decision not to prosecute driver Harry Clarke. They said Crown official David Green told them just weeks after the decision that Mr Clarke previously had a one-off faint in a hot canteen, when in fact it had happened at the wheel of a bus. The Crown Office has denied the claims. In a statement, the Crown Office said it was aware that Mr Clarke had fainted on a bus when it decided not to prosecute and that all evidence was disclosed to families before the Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI).
