Speaking at a news conference Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russia would have to carpet-bomb the Ukrainian capital and kill its residents to take the city. Meanwhile, the Russian troops are attempting to encircle Kyiv further, fighting against heavy resistance in the west and the north of the city.

The most famous story about modern presidential campaigning now has a quaint old-world tone. It’s about the showdown between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy in the first debate of their 1960 campaign, which was also the very first nationally televised general-election debate in the United States. The story is that Kennedy looked great, which is true, and Nixon looked terrible, which is also true—and that this visual difference had an unexpected electoral effect. As Theodore H. White described it in his hugely influential book The Making of the President 1960 , which has set the model for campaign coverage ever since, “sample surveys” after the debate found that people who had only heard Kennedy and Nixon talking, over the radio, thought that the debate had been a tie. But those who saw the two men on television were much more likely to think that Kennedy—handsome, tanned, non-sweaty, poised—had won. Historians who have followed up on this story haven’t found data to back … [Read more...] about When Donald Meets Hillary: Who Will Win the Debates?
A miracle pill which is claimed to cure hangovers has been launched in the UK, helping Brits get back on their feet after a night out. Experts say the new pill, which is taken before you drink, stops the body absorbing alcohol, protecting you from a hangover for the next 12 hours. Called Myrkl, it’s a mix of probiotics and made from the human body’s own natural bacteria. Grimsby Live reported . Combined with amino acid, L-Cysteine and Vitamin B12 the trio work together to help breakdown alcohol’s toxic by-products into carbon dioxide and water.

A dentist has issued a stark warning to Brits thinking of going overseas for cheap 'Turkey teeth'. The latest cosmetic dental trend of travelling abroad to get cheaper treatment is becoming increasingly popular as in the UK alone - 63% of those considering treatments are aged between 18-34, Liverpool Echo reports. However, experts say people committing to a lifetime of unnecessary, expensive and painful treatments could be at risk as many don’t even know what work they’ve had done when going for veneers, which is a wafer-thin covering for the front of the tooth. And coming away with a far more invasive outcome like crowns, where the surgeon will file down the existing teeth and add a fake tooth cap, or crown, could see patients walk away with 'Turkey teeth'. Dentists are warning Brits not to end up with 'Turkey Teeth' ( Image: Getty Images/Stock Image) While it may be cheaper in the short-term to travel abroad for the treatment, it could end up costing … [Read more...] about Dentist’s urgent warning to Brits thinking of going overseas for cheap ‘Turkey teeth’
Published 12 May comments Comments Share close Share page Copy link About sharing The risk of a recession has risen, analysts have warned, after the economy shrank during March just as the UK had recovered from the pandemic. Higher prices are "beginning to bite", the UK statistics body said , with people spending less and cutting down on car journeys due to high fuel costs. The impact of higher energy bills in April has also yet to be seen. The economy grew by 0.8% over the first three months of the year, but in March it shrank by 0.1% as people cut back. The main boost to the economy came in January, as hospitality and travel industries recovered from coronavirus pandemic restrictions. However, that came before the war in Ukraine and before households began to feel the pinch of higher prices. Paul Dales, chief UK economist at Capital Economics, said the … [Read more...] about Recession fears grow as rising prices hit spending
