  • This manicure just gave birth, and you have to see the baby
    on January 17, 2019 at 10:31 pm

    Umbilical cords are not usually part of the traditional manicure experience. Thankfully, there are exceptions to the rule. Russian nail artist Nail Sunny recently shared intricate nail art featuring a detailed chair (with stirrups) and a little woman in a pink hospital gown. The nail appears to be giving birth.> View this post on Instagram > > Baby birth -❤️ or ?

A scalpel reaches into the frame and quite literally plucks a little acrylic baby from beneath the woman's gown. Next, the umbilical cord is cut with a pair of tweezers and the newborn gel baby is placed with its gel mother.

  • Trump grounds Democratic speaker's foreign travel
    on January 17, 2019 at 9:41 pm

    Deadlock in Washington reached a new low Thursday as Donald Trump hit his chief Democratic opponent Nancy Pelosi with a last-minute cancellation of her plan to take an air force plane to Afghanistan -- citing the four-week-old government shutdown as a motive. The mess in Washington, where swaths of government workers are not being paid while Congress feuds with the White House, already verged on the surreal. In a letter laced with sarcasm and accompanied by his dramatic signature, Trump told House Speaker Pelosi: "I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. […]

  • 'I'm cancelling your trip': Donald Trump writes letter to Nancy Pelosi as shutdown continues
    on January 17, 2019 at 9:41 pm

    Donald Trump has denied a military aircraft for the most senior Democrat in the House of Representatives shortly before she was due to embark on a series of overseas trips. The US president hit back at Nancy Pelosi, the House speaker, a day after she told him to delay his State of the Union address until after the government shutdown was over.  Mrs Pelosi sent a letter to the president on Wednesday demanding that he either push back the January 29 speech or simply submit a written version of what he wanted to say to Congress. "Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan has been postponed," Mr Trump wrote in a retaliatory letter on Thursday. President @realDonaldTrump’s letter to @SpeakerPelosi concerning her upcoming travel— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) January 17, 2019 "In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I'm sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate." "We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over." Mrs Pelosi, a 78-year-old congresswoman from California, has been at loggerheads with Mr Trump, 72, throughout the shutdown, trading barbs and attempting to pin the blame on each other’s party.  Mrs Pelosi cited security concerns over her calls for Mr Trump to delay his speech, saying that the Secret Service and Homeland Security - which both help keep the event safe – had been partly “hamstrung” by the lack of funding.  Nancy Pelosi is the most senior figure in the House of Representatives Credit: Reuters The State of the Union address is one of the most prominent Washington events of the calendar, seeing a president speak to almost every member of the capital’s political elite.  Every congressmen and senator is invited to the speech, delivered in the House, as well as Supreme Court judges, members of the president’s cabinet and foreign ambassadors.  Security is extremely tight, with the roads around the US Capitol closed off in the hours before the speech. Air Force bus meant to transport Speaker of the Pelosi and other members of Congress to flight to Afghanistan sits in front of House of Representatives in Washington Credit: Reuters Mrs Pelosi wrote in her letter: “Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government reopens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has reopened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to Congress on January 29.” The move was an apparent attempt to force focus of the shutdown, the longest in US history, back onto Mr Trump while also denying the president a prominent stage from which to chastise Democrats over the impasse. The president's letter to Mrs Pelosi Some 800,000 federal government workers are affected, with around half working for free and the other half sent home without pay.  A quarter of the government is impacted.  The US president has insisted he will sign no spending bill that would reopen government unless it includes $5.7 billion for construction of his Mexico border wall – a key campaign pledge.    The Democrats, who hold the majority in the House, have refused to give Mr Trump his $5.7 billion and insist they will not talk about immigration reform until the government is back open.  One sophomoric response does not deserve another. Speaker Pelosi’s threat to cancel the State of the Union is very irresponsible and blatantly political.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) January 17, 2019 But while the nation's two most powerful leaders appeared to be engaged in a game of Constitutional one-upmanship, some lawmakers were unimpressed. Republican senator Lindsey Graham tweeted: "One sophomoric response does not deserve another." […]

  • In third year, U.S. women's marches turn to 2020 elections
    on January 17, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    Millions of people took part in the women's marches in Washington and other cities in the United States and abroad on Jan. 21, 2017, the day after the Republican president was sworn in. Vanessa Wruble, a co-founder of the original Women's March on Washington who left to start March On, a separate grassroots coalition, said the movement has evolved from being a reaction to Trump's presidency. Women's March, a national nonprofit organization that evolved from the initial Washington march, is using its #WomensWave marches in Washington and elsewhere on Saturday to roll out a 10-part policy platform that includes raising the federal minimum wage and protecting reproductive rights.

  • Apple boss Tim Cook attacks 'shadow economy' of data in call for new privacy law
    on January 17, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook has called for the US to introduce a national privacy law, attacking a “shadow economy” in which people’s personal data is bought and sold without their knowledge. Mr Cook said companies should have to collect as little data as possible and make it easy for people to delete the information that is held about them. It is the latest attempt from Apple to position itself as the steward of consumers’ privacy, and to draw a line between itself and companies such as Facebook and Google. Mr Cook said that people need to “win back their right to privacy” and that companies that sell data should have to register with the Federal Trade Commission, the US consumer watchdog. “I and others are calling on the US Congress to pass comprehensive federal privacy legislation - a landmark package of reforms that protect and empower the consumer,” Mr Cook wrote in Time Magazine. He singled out “data brokers”, companies that purchase, bundle up and sell data on individuals, such as credit reference agencies, saying that most people were unaware of how companies transact in their data. “Right now, all of these secondary markets for your information exist in a shadow economy that’s largely unchecked. Let’s be clear: you never signed up for that,” Mr Cook wrote. The US does not have a national equivalent to the UK’s Data Protection Act or the European privacy legislation, GDPR. Facebook, Amazon and Google have all said they would support a law, but failed to put forward any concrete proposals. Mr Cook said companies should aim to minimise the amount of data they collect and make it easier for people to delete or correct it. Mr Cook has played up Apple’s privacy credentials in recent months, as sales of its iPhones stumble and as Google and Facebook have been embroiled in repeated data controversies. Its privacy commitment has come under scrutiny, since Apple receives billions of dollars a year from Google to be the default search engine on the iPhone. Mr Cook has defended the deal, saying the company has built in controls to limit how much users can be tracked. […]
