US pastor runs network giving 50,000 Ugandans bleach-based ‘miracle cure’

Group led by Robert Baldwin and part-funded by Sam Little claims drinking toxic fluid will eradicate HIV/Aids and other diseases An American pastor from New Jersey backed by a British former clairvoyant is running a network that gives up to 50,000 Ugandans a miracle cure made from industrial bleach, claiming drinking the toxic fluid eradicates cancer, HIV/Aids, malaria and most other diseases.

This is a wake-up call: the villagers who could be Britains first climate refugees

As sea levels rise, Fairbourne, sandwiched between mountains and the beach, is being returned to the waves. But where will its residents go? It is an almost perfect spring day. The sky is milky blue and there is barely a ripple on the mirror-flat expanse of Barmouth Bay. The sunshine is warm and the mountains are beginning to turn from slate-grey to luscious green. Bev Wilkins, a former businesswoman, launches a ball down the beach for her beloved German shepherd rescue dog, Lottie. In a blur of legs and black fur, the dog dashes into the frothy surf. It is a lovely spot when the sun comes out, she says, welcoming her dripping pet back with an affectionate rub. Horrible …

At home with Vincent Kompany: ‘Setbacks, racism everything fed my fire’

The Manchester City captain talks frankly about the wrong path he nearly took as a teenager, lunatic politicians and life after football It is 10am on an early spring day when I pull up at the electric gates of Vincent Kompanys home. In the drizzle, the Manchester sprawl has given way to the leafy streets of Cheshire, where long driveways announce the grand houses of the affluent. Kompany answers the door in a black T-shirt and jeans, having just finished a workout. Its March, and Manchester Citys battle-hardened captain and central defender is only now returning to fitness after a six-week layoff for a calf injury.

George R.R. Martin shoots down ‘Game of Thrones’ rumor

(CNN)While George R.R. Martin thinks it’s “absurd” that he even has to address the latest “Game of Thrones” speculation, he’s doing it anyway. Martin said of the claim, “It seems absurd to me that I need to state this.” “It boggles me that anyone would believe this story, even for an instant,” Martin wrote. “It makes not a whit of sense.” “Why would I sit for years on completed novels? Why would my publishers — not just here in the US, but all around the world — ever consent to this?” he continued. “They make millions and millions of dollars every time a new Ice & Fire book comes out, as do I.” Martin also said that delaying his books …

Samantha Bee: Alabama lawmakers ‘wouldn’t know a vulva if it bit them’

Late-night hosts discussed the damaging effects of Alabamas strict new abortion law and the problematic nature of its contents Late-night monologues from Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee focused on the strict all yes votes coming from white Republican men, though it might be the last time those Republican men will be coming for a while, the host cheekily quipped to his audience. He also focused on this dangerous trend of Republican-led legislatures who have passed similar bills, from states such as Ohio, Georgia and Mississippi. While Colbert did tell his audience reasonable people can disagree on the topic, he informed his audience the law was not sincere, rather a purposeful and cynical overreach because they just want to use this …

Dartmouth says letting women use pseudonyms in sexual misconduct lawsuit is confusing

(CNN)Dartmouth College is challenging the use of pseudonyms in a $70 million class-action lawsuit that accuses the school of failing to promptly address sexual misconduct allegations against three former professors. Two more people — both former students — joined the lawsuit in May as Jane Doe 2 and Jane Doe 3, bringing the total number of plaintiffs to nine.

Revealing their names would amplify the emotional distress they …

Find a current map and bring along a hard copy of it. Study it and make a plan for where you intend to go. And make sure …

Michelle Obama Pens Emotional Mother’s Day Tribute To Marian Robinson

Michelle Obama paid homage to her mother Marian Robinson on Sunday, calling her “a sweet, witty companion” who “listened a lot more than she lectured.” People magazine’s upcoming issue, Obama praised Robinson’s parenting, stating that “when it came to raising her kids, my mom knew that her voice was less important than allowing me to use my own.” While she noted that by today’s standards, critics may call her mother’s somewhat hands-off parenting style too lenient, Obama explained that “the reality was far from that.” Obama echoed the kind words for Robinson in an Instagram post, sharing a photo of the two between her daughters, Malia and Sasha ― three generations in one image. “From an early age, she saw …
