America’s forever war in Afghanistan can’t end soon enough

America’s forever war in Afghanistan might soon be over. President Joe Biden announced plans to withdraw the 2,500 United States troops remaining in Afghanistan by — symbolically of course — Sept. 11. After two decades, the end should have come sooner. “We went to Afghanistan because of a horrific attack that happened 20 years ago. That cannot explain why we should remain there in 2021,” the president said on Wednesday. Indeed, as the president noted in his remarks, it’s been 10 years since Osama bin Laden was killed. Al-Qaeda has been nearly destroyed. Afghanistan now has 300,000 military personnel of its own. And the U.S. retains extensive capabilities to address legitimate terrorism threats in Afghanistan and abroad. For many years now, the precise mission of the U.S. has been vaguely ...

This Is the Only First Aid Kit I Keep Around for Small Emergencies

Photo Illustration: Scouted/The Daily Beast/TargetI wouldn’t say that I’m accident prone. Clumsy is a bit of a stretch, too. But there’s not a week that passes that I don’t need a BandAid. My hands move quicker than my brain, in broad strokes that often end with me breaking nails or slipping with a knife. This means I must have bandages in my house at all times. I’ve stocked and restocked boxes of the plain, flesh colored bandages until I was sent a Welly First Aid Kit. Yes, I’m a total sucker for packaging, but these days, anything that’s both fun and function brings me a great sense of joy. Unlike the traditional white and red boxes of yesteryear, the Welly First Aid box is all bells and whistles. Inside the brightly colored container is a plethora of personal aid treasures, from banda...

Katie Price slammed by Depop customers over ‘disappointing’ and ‘stained’ products

Katie has been slammed by some Depop customers (Picture: Depop/YouTube)Katie Price has been hit by negative reviews from fans on Depop after reportedly selling them ‘disappointing’ and ‘stained’ products. The former glamour model has turned her attention to the shopping app to flog her old clothes and shoes, alongside books, calendars and false eyelashes. She happens to boast a reputable five-star rating on the platform, and despite receiving praise from most customers, it seems some are not happy with the quality of the items they have received. Katie, 42, sold a pair of black-studded Valentino heels she had previously worn to Parliament for a lobbying trip for £150. One fan managed to snap up the footwear, but claimed that they arrived ‘wrecked’, while also criticising Katie

I found out I’d lost my child without my husband while people queued for Costa

Tamsin Roberts’s husband Leigh was not allowed to be with her when she was told her baby had died (Pictures: BPM Media)A woman was told her baby died while she was apart from her husband because of coronavirus rules, while dozens of people queued on the other side of the wall for a coffee at Costa. Tamsin Roberts went to see a doctor after suffering stomach pain but her scan did not show anything alarming. But four weeks later, on September 1 last year, her 11-week scan showed she had suffered a ‘missed miscarriage’ – when the fetus dies but has not been physically miscarried, so the mum does experience typical symptoms such as bleeding. While Tamsin’s husband Leigh waited in the car, a sonographer at St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey, Surrey, told her that she had lost her baby.

Scott Rudin Will Step Back from Broadway Amid Abuse Accusations

In the wake of a Hollywood Reporter exposé detailing mega producer Scott Rudin’s alleged long history of toxic bullying and abuse in the workplace, the Academy Award-winning film, television, and stage producer said he will step aside from Broadway producing duties. Apologizing “for the pain [his] behavior caused” his colleagues, Rudin told The Washington Post on Saturday that he made the decision in an effort to take the “steps that I should have taken years ago to address this behavior.” Rudin, the producer of Broadway hits including “The Book of Mormon” and “To Kill a Mockingbird” as well as Oscar-winning films like “No Country for Old Men” and “The Social Network,” was accused in The Hollywood Reporter by former colleagues of “acts of intimidation” spanning decades. On the film side,

Scott Rudin will ‘step back’ after allegations of bullying

Amid mounting anger over allegations of bullying, Broadway and Hollywood producer Scott Rudin broke his silence Saturday, saying he is “profoundly sorry” and will step back from his theater work. “After a period of reflection, I’ve made the decision to step back from active participation on our Broadway productions, effective immediately.

‘We would love to keep him’ – Steve Bruce keen to extend Joe Willock’s stay at Newcastle after West Ham winner

Joe Willock is making a habit of scoring big late goals on loan at Newcastle (Picture: Getty)Steve Bruce confirmed he would ‘love’ to keep hold of Joe Willock beyond the summer after the on-loan Arsenal midfielder came on to score the winner in Newcastle’s 3-2 victory over West Ham. The visiting Hammers looked down and out as Joelinton doubled Newcastle’s advantage in the 41st minute following Issa Diop’s calamitous own goal and Craig Pawson’s sending off. But a pair of second-half goals from Diop and Jesse Lingard set up a thrilling finish and Willock was sent on in place of Sean Longstaff with nine minutes remaining of Saturday’s breathless Premier League encounter at St James’ Park. Willock’s late introduction worked wonders earlier this month as he found a last-gasp equaliser

David Thomson talks about which movie directors made ‘History’ – and who got left out

David Thomson, author of “A Biographical Dictionary of Film,” is perhaps the most celebrated living film historian. And at age 80, he is still exploring and examining the cinematic landscape from every angle. In his new book, “A Light in the Dark: A History of Movie Directors,” he features chapters on Orson Welles, Howard Hawks and Alfred Hitchcock, bringing his personal tastes and sensibility to each of their careers. But he goes well beyond those obvious choices. In his chapter on Jean-Luc Godard, he takes down David Lean several pegs, which is nothing compared to the way he devotes a chapter to eviscerating most of Quentin Tarantino’s work outside of “Pulp Fiction.” He also speculates on how the dazzling skill with which “The Godfather” was made actually makes people overlook the film’s

Democratic Rep. Mondaire Jones calls on Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to retire

Summary List PlacementDemocratic Rep. Mondaire Jones of New York on Friday called on Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to step down at the end of the current term. During an interview with Cheddar News, Jones said the 82-year-old Breyer needed to retire in order to grant President Joe Biden the ability to nominate a new justice. After the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg last September, former President Donald Trump quickly nominated Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the court, with her successful Senate confirmation effectively reordering the balance of the court and cementing a 6-3 conservative majority. Many Democrats, still smarting over Trump's installation of three jurists to the Supreme Court, want to avoid the court becoming even more conservative due to older liberal justices...
