The New Adventures of Superman and Vendetta actor was on a flight when he tweeted a picture of himself wearing a face mask on Tuesday and wrote: “Found it utterly ridiculous that I had to wear a mask on the plane – flying to/from Canada ”. While it was unclear which airline he was flying with, many pointed out that Canada still requires passengers to wear a face mask when flying in and out of the country – a rule that comes to an end on 30 September. “Our country, our rules. Our rules change on Saturday,” tweeted one user on the social media website, which prompted another to … [Read more...] about Dean Cain mocked for blocking dozens of Twitter users after Covid mask complaint backfires

President Donald Trump will arrive in Scotland on Friday, following talks with Queen Elizabeth II and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Before becoming president, Trump, whose mother was born in Scotland, invested millions in two lavish Scottish golf courses: Turnberry in Ayrshire and Menie in Aberdeenshire. In 2014, Trump purchased the Turnberry golf resort for an undisclosed sum from a Dubai-based company, announcing that he would invest some $260 million to transform the property. In 2008, the Scottish government granted the Trump Organization outline planning permission for the Aberdeenshire resort, which was estimated to cost about $1.3 billion. Trump has said he removed himself from the operations of the Trump Organization by transferring control to his sons. However, he has gone against precedent by refusing to put the business into a blind trust, drawing significant criticism from ethics experts. Critics argue that Trump's business ventures, which extend across … [Read more...] about Trump in Scotland: What does the president own in the northern U.K. country?

D efacement is a beautiful painting —and an ugly one. Its alternative name, The Death of Michael Stewart , reveals its subject: a young Black man who died in police custody in 1983, after his arrest for allegedly writing graffiti on the wall of a subway station in New York City. Stewart’s death shocked the city’s artists, many of whom had known him personally. It resonated in particular with young Black men such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Fred Brathwaite, known as Fab 5 Freddy, who had also been labeled as graffiti artists—undisciplined, dangerous outlaws—even though they were now working on canvas and selling in galleries. “I remember being with Jean-Michel,” Fab told me. “We would look at each other, without having to say it: We know that could be us.” The six officers tried in relation to Stewart’s death were cleared two years later by an all-white jury. Basquiat took his fear and his anger and responded in the way he knew best. In the days after Stewart’s death, he … [Read more...] about The Guggenheim’s Scapegoat
Chris Thomas has made democracy his life’s work. A 73-year-old attorney, Thomas spent nearly four decades leading the elections division in the office of Michigan’s secretary of state. He served under Republicans and Democrats alike, and his mandate was always the same: protect the ballot box. He trained local election workers; sought out and fixed weaknesses in the voting system; investigated errors committed while ballots were collected and tabulated; and, ultimately, ensured the accuracy of the count. Thomas was one of 10 people named to the Presidential Commission on Election Administration in 2013. He earned a reputation as a nonpartisan authority on all things elections, and took pride in supervising a system that was stable and widely trusted. Which is why 2020 shook him so badly. Thomas had retired from the secretary of state’s office a few years earlier, confident that Michigan’s elections were in good hands. Then the coronavirus pandemic arrived, prompting changes to … [Read more...] about Bad Losers
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan categorically rejected on Monday Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar’s recent remarks insinuating Pakistan is involved in terrorism. In a statement, the Foreign Office called Jaishankar’s remarks "highly irresponsible and gratuitous”. The Indian external affairs minister, at an event in Vadodara, India, had said "no other country practices terrorism in the manner in which Pakistan has done", as per Indian media reports. "You show me anywhere in the world what Pakistan has done for so many years against India,” Jaishankar was quoted as saying by The Hindu. “Instead of leveling baseless allegations against Pakistan, India is well advised to abjure its policy of state terrorism in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and against the Muslims in India,” the FO statement read. The FO urged India to allow the Kashmiri people to exercise their right to self-determination as enshrined in the relevant UN Security Council … [Read more...] about FO rejects Indian minister’s ‘irresponsible’ remarks against Pakistan
