What did Melania Trump give to Michelle Obama

    Michelle receiving present from Melania Melania Trump's parting gift to the former first lady set tongues wagging yesterday, not least because of Michelle's priceless reaction to the present. But more intriguing is what was actually in the large box, unmistakably dressed in Tiffany's signature colours. As Melania and Donald walked up the steps of the White House, a gloved Melania carried the box and was quick to present it to Michelle. With a hand outstretched, a warm Michelle ignored a handshake and went straight in for an embrace and a kiss on the cheeks. That's a present for you, a smiling Melania told Michelle, who awkwardly took the box and quickly turned for someone to take it from her so they can have their photo altogether on the White House steps. Her face said it...

Eating burnt toast may increase cancer risk

    Eating certain foods that have been cooked at high temperatures could be linked to cancer, according to health officials. The danger foods include chips, toast, biscuits, crackers, crisps, breakfast cereals (except for porridge), coffee, cooked pizza bases, black olives and cereal-based baby foods. Also on the list are root vegetables such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, beetroot, turnip, swede and parsnips once they have been fried until dark brown or crispy. When cooked at high temperatures (above 120C) a chemical compound forms called acrylamide and studies on mice have shown that high levels of it can cause neurological damage and cancer. Studies in humans have proved inconclusive. French fries wait to be ordered at a fast-food restaurant September 30, 2002 in Chicago, Il...

Trump invites Israel’s Netanyahu to February talks

    US President Donald Trump on Sunday discussed Iran with Benjamin Netanyahu and invited the Israeli prime minister to visit the White House early on next month. The two leaders spoke by telephone and agreed to continue to closely consult on a range of regional issues, including addressing the threats posed by Iran, the White House said in a statement, signalling the new administration’s tougher line on Tehran. The statement also said that Trump invited Netanyahu to an early February meeting at the White House. Israel approved hundreds of new settler homes in east Jerusalem Sunday hours before the telephone call, which an Israeli statement described as very warm. But a potentially explosive plan to annex a large West Bank Jewish settlement unilaterally was shelved until afte...

Hero SAS sniper kills three ISIS terrorists with ONE bullet

    An SAS sniper killed three ISIS terrorists with a single bullet, it has been claimed. The expert shooter slaughtered the militants after his bullet passed through two of them before it ricocheted and hitting another in the neck. His bullet hit the first terrorist in the head killing him instantly and travelled through to hit another in the chest. It then bounced off a wall and hit the third in the neck, reports the Daily Star Sunday. The incident apparently happened in November during a mission in a remote village near to Mosul, Iraq. When prisoners tried to flee the ISIS gunmen, they reportedly opened fire with machine guns. SAS troops stepped in to control them, as the crack sniper set about taking them out with an L115A sniper rifle loaded with .338 Lapua Magnum bullets...

Sir Michael to face MPs over covered up a Trident missile

    Sir Michael Fallon is to be quizzed by MPs today over claims that Downing Street covered up a Trident missile test failure just weeks before a crucial Commons vote. The Defence Secretary will be forced to make a Commons statement or answer an urgent question after Theresa May refused four times in a TV interview to say whether she knew about the malfunction. The Sunday Times has revealed that a Trident II D5 missile veered off course after being launched from the British submarine HMS Vengeance off the coast of Florida in June last year. Defence Secretary Michael Fallon speaks to media in front of HMS Audacious at BAE Systems, Burrow-in-Furness, where he will attend a steel-cutting ceremony to formally commence production of the UK's next generation of nuclear… It happened...
