The Atlantic was forced to issue a major correction to a report late on Friday night, admitting that an author lied to them and their readers, after a media critic at The Washington Post dug into the report and found numerous issues with it. Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple dismantled a piece authored by Ruth Shalit Barrett, who allegedly has a checkered past including “ a trail of journalistic scandal. ” The story that Wemple picked apart led readers to believe that fencing was a dangerous, bloody sport. Barrett wrote about two injuries allegedly sustained by a young girl in Connecticut last year. The Atlantic article claimed that the girl was “stabbed in the jugular” right “next to the carotid artery.” The article also claimed that the 12-year-old girl, Sloane, had previously been “gashed so deeply in the thigh that blood seeped through her pants.” Wemple began: The Erik Wemple Blog wrote last week that these counted as freakish events in one of the world’s … [Read more...] about The Atlantic Forced To Issue Major Correction To Report After Admitting Author ‘Deceived’ Readers | The Daily Wire
Probeat true wireless earbuds review
About once a day, while I’m scrolling through TikTok or Instagram in a state of euphoric online dissociation, I’ll come across a video that’s so stupid that it briefly makes me consider putting my phone down and doing some actual work (I never do, but still). I’m not talking about your run of the mill stupid videos either, like of somebody falling down or doing an embarrassing little dance. I’m talking about those “hack” videos where a person tells you that you should try cooking steak in a toaster , or bedazzling your tongue with sequins. Those videos that look like something Neil Buchanan would make if he lost his mind, where a person encourages the viewer to do something completely pointless that at best won’t work, and at worst could harm them. As frustrating as those videos are, it’s that potential for harm that I find the most disturbing about them. Not only is this misinformation often completely unregulated, but it is also actively promoted – and in some … [Read more...] about Misleading viral content is killing people.

After three years of dealing with the UK’s temperamental sunshine, going to a warmer country was high on the to-do list this year. Swimming in the sea or a lake just doesn’t have the same effect when the chances of rain are high and the clouds are looming. An obvious consequence of jetting off to tropical countries in high summer is a brand new tan, which, despite not necessarily being good for you, often makes us feel a thousand times better. While it’s important to remember that there’s no such thing as a healthy tan, because all tans are a result of sun damage whether you burn or not, simply existing in a hotter climate with a high UV index is likely to leave you slightly more bronzed than when you arrived (yes, even when you use factor 50+). It goes without saying that many of us feel much more attractive with a summer glow, so how do we keep our tan from fading? How long does the average tan last? Founder and clinic director of skin health clinic London … [Read more...] about How to keep your summer tan from fading, according to a skincare expert
Summer is around the corner and with the hot weather comes the reality of a sweatier, oilier face. So our makeup tends to get lighter in consistency, with foundations swapped out for skin tints and heavy powders ditched. Makeup in sheer or balmy textures becomes a blessing. While it’s not the most mask transfer-proof finish, a sheer texture is quick and easy to top up. Usually only a quick blend with the pad of a finger (over a brush and sponge) is all you need. Dominic Skinner, global senior artist at MAC Cosmetics tells Metro.co.uk these textures also allow you to experiment with playful colours in a failsafe way. Using blusher as an example, he says: ‘Bold looks always find a way to filter to the high street. ‘So a bold, yet sheer, pop of blush has its origins in fashion week but made more wearable.’ So as well as being quicker to apply and less heavy on the skin, you can afford to go brighter or more statement than you normally would, in the knowledge … [Read more...] about For easy summer makeup, sheer and balmy textures are the way to go – here are our top buys
