The Truth About Using Apple Cider for Weight Loss

    It's next to impossible to get apple cider vinegar that's not clean. It has no unwanted sodium, sugar, or additives. Use a dash or two to add a mild sour flavor to salad dressings, marinades, and more. For decades, apple cider vinegar (which is referred to as ACV by its loyal fans) has been labelled as a superfood due its numerous health-boosting benefits. The fermented beverage that's packed with enzymes, probiotics, and trace minerals has been shown to lower blood pressure and serve as an antibacterial when treating wounds, and has been hailed as a cure for hiccups, acne, heartburn, a sore throat, and bad breath, among countless other ailments. But is this ancient tart liquid also capable of beating the battle of the bulge? Let's examine the science: Back in 2009, resear...

How These Twin Babies Were Born with Different Skin Colors

    You may assume Kalani and Jarani Dean are just close friends, but the baby girls are actually twins. The dynamic duo portray their parents in the most unbelievable way: Kalani inherits fair skin from her mother, who is white, and Jarani has brown skin like her dad, who is black. Despite their stark physical differences, they share the same DNA. The lucky parents are Whitney Meyer and Tomas Dean, from Quincy, Illinois. Meyer has been posting pictures of the unique pair since they were born last April, and their images have been going viral ever since. The genetic phenomenon is exceedingly rare, but, of course, entirely possible. According to geneticist Jim Wilson to the BBC, there is about a one in 500 chance for mixed-race couples in Britain expecting twins that their babi...

Ivanka Trump under fire after taking seat among world leaders at G20

    I try to stay out of politics, Ivanka Trump said in a recent interview. But the US president’s daughter spent part of her weekend sitting around a table with the Chinese, Russian and Turkish presidents, the German chancellor and the British prime minister. The former businesswoman and fashion model briefly took her father’s seat during a G20 session in Hamburg, prompting claims of nepotism and a heavy dose of sarcasm about her diplomatic credentials. Ms Trump, 35, sat around the table with Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Angela Merkel and Theresa May. One official who was watching the session told the Bloomberg news agency she had taken her father’s place on at least two occasions on Saturday but had not spoken. A spokesman for the first daughter told Blo...

US practice bombing run a provocation, says North Korea

    North Korea has criticised a practice bombing run on the Korean peninsula by two US B-1B bombers as a dangerous move, raising the risk of nuclear war. A commentary on Sunday in the ruling party’s Rodong Sinmun newspaper accused the US of reckless military provocations that are escalating tensions. The US Air Force bombers released inert weapons on Friday on a training range in South Korea. South Korean and US fighter jets joined the drill. The bombers also flew with Japanese fighter jets on their way back to Andersen Air Force Base in Guam. The 10-hour mission came three days after North Korea tested an intercontinental ballistic missile. US military officials described the exercise as a defensive show of force and unity that demonstrated the iron-clad US commitment to our...

Mrs May plays trump card about Brexit

    Theresa May has seized on the optimism of Donald Trump and world leaders over Brexit to face down a growing rebellion from Cabinet colleagues and backbenchers. The Prime Minister revealed that the heads of the biggest economies globally had agreed to deepen trade with the UK in a powerful vote of confidence in its post-Brexit future. President Trump personally assured Mrs May that a powerful trade deal between the US and the UK would be completed very, very quickly, as they met at the G20 in Hamburg. In a pointed rebuke of critics, Mrs May played up the prospects of increasing trade with “old friends and new partners” after leaving the EU, including China, India and Japan. It will be seen as a dismissal of Philip Hammond, the Chancellor, who said that not remaining as clos...
