90 Day Fiancé star Paul Staehle has come forward after both he and his son Pierre were reported missing. Ever since appearing on the American reality series, Staehle, 33, has reportedly experienced a tumultuous relationship with wife Karine Martins, 26. And early last month, Paul and the couple’s son, Pierre, were both reported missing by Louisville Metro Police in Kentucky, US. However, earlier this week, TMZ reported that Paul and Pierre were on their way home and that the entire situation had been a ‘big misunderstanding’. ‘[Paul] is aware he and his three-year-old have officially been reported as [missing] in Louisville,’ TMZ reported. ‘[Paul] denies he’s kidnapped and fled with his own kid, saying they were simply on a long work trip together dating back to early June, and that Pierre is safe’. TMZ also reported that Pierre’s ‘separation anxiety’ was being Paul’s reasoning for taking his son with him on the work trip last month. Karine has also published a … [Read more...] about 90 Day Fiancé’s Paul Staehle denies kidnapping son after being reported missing
Turning 90 sayings
With some actors, you only need to take one look at the names of their movies to get an idea of where they excelled. In the case of Gina Lollobrigida, her film titles truly say it all: "Wife for a Night," "The Unfaithfuls," "The Wayward Wife," "Beautiful But Dangerous" — these are all titles from the 1950s, linked by a clear theme. That same theme continued well into the 1960s: "Go Naked in the World," "Strange Bedfellows," "Pleasant Nights," "The Sultans," "Imperial Venus" and "Curious Way to Love." Lollobrigida, Italy's sexy sweetheart, was recognized for her temperament as much as her figure 'La Lollo' marketed for eroticism Admittedly, the original Italian names of some of these highly eroticized film titles sound rather harmless in comparison. Film distributors throughout the world tried to draw attention to the attractive actress' sex appeal — even if the actual films didn't have much to do about sex. And it worked. Lollobrigida became one of the most sought-after … [Read more...] about Cinema icon Gina Lollobrigida turns 95
Chris Fleming says it was stories about patient harm that kept him up at night during his time as Southern District Health Board chief executive. He stands by his decision to downgrade the Lumsden Maternity Centre. Fleming says there will always be a need for charity hospitals in New Zealand because the healthcare system is rationed. Southern District Health Board chief executive Chris Fleming’s resignation coincided with the disestablishment of district health boards, and he says Southlanders must speak up to make sure their needs are met in the future. Louisa Steyl reports. Southland’s former health boss wishes he could have solved the region’s GP crisis and nursing shortage before leaving his post. He also would have liked to see more progress on the new Dunedin Hospital build and less bureaucracy to get infrastructure projects like the ED expansion at Southland Hospital approved. Former Southern District Health chief executive Chris Fleming stepped down … [Read more...] about ‘The health system is always going to be constrained,’ DHB boss says
The CCTV system that did for Health Secretary Matt Hancock is still whirring away at his old department, despite mandarins running up a £10,000 bill for legal advice on the rights and wrongs of having it removed. Hancock, 43, was forced to quit a year ago last week after his passionate clinch with a colleague, Gina Coladangelo, also 43, was caught on a camera mounted in his ministerial office. When the footage was leaked to a newspaper, it triggered the end of both parties' marriages. In the aftermath, international law firm Pinsent Masons was hired to examine the implications of 'Hikvision CCTV equipment removal' across the DoH estate. Hancock, who is keen to restart his ministerial career, has declared in the Commons Register of Members' Interests £11,000 of hospitality in New York and Miami from Hawksmoor Technology Advisors. They hosted his visit to a crypto-currency conference called the Permissionless Experience. Some might say it's not the first time that he's had a … [Read more...] about ANDREW PIERCE: Matt Hancock CCTV dilemma runs up a £10k bill
R Kelly's trial was the culmination of decades of accusations, pointing to a predator hiding in plain sight. Rumours and allegations about the now disgraced R&B singer date back to almost the beginning of his career - and yet, he rose to become a chart-topper, a Grammy winner, an artist who filled arenas and collaborated with huge stars; at his height, one of the biggest recording acts in the world. The criminal details of his marriage to Aaliyah in 1994, when she was 15 and he was 27 - now detailed in open court, a former tour manager admitting he bribed an official to get a fake ID in order for the ceremony to go ahead - had always been a well-known secret. And in 2002, Kelly was charged with 21 counts of making indecent images of children. After years of delays to his trial, the singer was acquitted, but the allegations never went away. Claims made over the years were silenced and brushed over, by an industry that wanted to keep the money rolling in, and fans who did … [Read more...] about R Kelly convicted: Everybody knew the accusations – so why did it take 30 years to get justice?
Extra-long term mortgages on family homes which could be passed on from parents to their children are being considered within Government as part of plans to ease the housing crisis. The idea could see people able to buy a home with little or no expectation of completing mortgage repayments during their lifetime, instead the property and outstanding debt would be passed on to their children. Mortgages lasting 100 years have been issued in Japan but experts were sceptical about the impact the proposal would have in the UK. The idea has been floated within government as it could allow people to buy a bigger home than they otherwise might be able to afford. Recommended Over £130m handed to housing providers named and shamed by regulator The Government is already trying to increase home ownership with a package of measures including extending the right-to-buy to housing association tenants and trying to increase access to 95% mortgages for buyers … [Read more...] about Ministers consider extra-long term mortgages to tackle housing crisis
In spring, Germany's coalition government announced that a heavily discounted nationwide travel pass — the so-called 9-euro ticket — would be made available for June, July and August. Each pass allows ticket-holders to use Germany's public transport network for one calendar month for just those €9 ($9.38). News of the scheme, devised to cushion rising fuel and living costs, sparked excitement, yet led some to wonder whether the transport infrastructure would be able to cope with an expected spike in passenger numbers. It was significant that national rail operator Deutsche Bahn had already warned in advance that travelers should refrain from taking bicycles on trains starting from June due to a lack of space. Germany's public transport authorities, who manage and operate travel networks across the country, had little time to prepare. "We had to adjust our sales infrastructure and acquire additional buses, trains and personnel — though I have to say that was not possible at a … [Read more...] about Germany’s 9-euro travel pass: Success or failure?
By Roger Harrabin Published 2 January 2021 Share close Share page Copy link About sharing The bird charity RSPB has criticised a government decision to permit an offshore wind farm expected to harm birds feeding in the North Sea. The giant Hornsea Three development lies 75 miles away from Flamborough Head, England’s biggest sea bird colony on the Yorkshire coast. The RSPB says kittiwakes will need to fly through the area, dodging turbines, to reach feeding grounds. The developers have promised to compensate for the impact on the birds. They plan to do this by building four bespoke nesting towers to encourage them on land. But the RSPB says it will take a decade to see whether this idea works – and that will be too late because the wind farms will be up and running by then.
