What Donald Trump’s giant White House golf simulator says about him

(CNN)Within the last few weeks, President Donald Trump had a room-sized golf simulator installed in his personal quarters at the White House, according to The Washington Post.

Aksel Lund Svindal: 0.02 seconds from glory — Norwegian second in his final downhill race

Are, Sweden (CNN)In the final race of his career, Aksel Lund Svindal made sure his last downhill was a knee-knocking thriller. There was a moment during his run, with the snow falling and fog reducing visibility, that Svindal nipped ahead of race leader Jansrud and looked on course for a third world downhill title, but a wobble in the middle section set him back and the 36-year-old had to settle for silver, just as Jansrud did when Svindal took Olympic gold last year.

Does CBD Work? We Tried A Bunch Of CBD Products Betches

Okay, so I battle chronic Lyme disease and anxiety on the daily. I also train Brazilian jiu-jitsu 3-4 days/week.

Beauty/Skin Care whoAs someone with eczema and super sensitive skin, trying any form of beauty or skin care product on my face or body (aside from my tried-and-true usuals) has always scared me. I tried and on Sunday night after I showered and found out for myself.   I pumped a glob onto my finger and wiped what I thought was a respectable amount of serum underneath and around my eyes. I had some extra serum left over, so I …

Rugby World Cup: Remembering the shock of the century

(CNN)With time almost up on the clock, Japan rolled the dice on England’s south coast. Leitch wanted a try — five points that would thrust Japan into the history books with the greatest upset in Rugby World Cup history. Meet rugby superfan Daisuke Komura Like the thousands in the stadium, Komura urged his side to play for the try in the closing minutes. Sitting near him was now England boss Jones, who looked on as the players continued to defy his instructions. Come the final play, Jones couldn’t watch. “Eddie was sitting right behind me and left in anger as he wanted to see a shot at goal,” says Komura. “I guess he didn’t see the deciding moment, but when …

Drake’s calls out Grammys during acceptance speech

(CNN)Drake had a message for musicians and the Grammys on Sunday. He also seemed to allude to the Recording Academy’s debatable track record with hip hop and artists of color. “This is a business where sometimes it’s up to a bunch of people who might not understand what a mixed race kid from Canada has to say or a fly Spanish girl from New York or anybody else, or a brother from Houston right there, my brother Travis [Scott]. But my point is you’ve already won if you have people singing your songs word for word, if you’re a hero in your hometown. Look, if there’s people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain, in the …

Huawei and 5G: Decision time

In background briefings with three of the major operators, there has been a constant theme – we know we need to keep Huawei out of the most sensitive parts of our networks, but a blanket ban would be a disaster for the roll-out of 5G and for the UK’s role in a vital technology. Their preparations for the commercial launch of their 5G networks towards the end of this year are well advanced and they are all planning to use plenty of Huawei equipment, not in their core networks but at their phone mast sites and in the kit to link them to the central brain.

Wildlife Photographer Captures Beautiful Images Of Rare And Elusive Black Panther In Kenya

An incredibly rare and elusive black panther has been captured on film in Kenya. British wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas used specially designed camera traps to take some astonishing photographs of the beguiling cat sneaking about the bush under cover of darkness. Meanwhile, a team of scientists from San Diego Zoo have also managed to record footage of black panthers – likely a mother and daughter – in the same area, publishing an accompanying scientific study in the African Journal of Ecology. Excitingly, these researchers believe there are at least two, if not three black panthers in Laikipia County, Kenya. Rather than being their own species, black panthers are actually just big cats – usually jaguars or leopards – with a genetic …

Ian McKinley: The Italian rugby player who overcame a burst eye

(CNN)When Ian McKinley came off the bench for Italy in the opening game of the 2019 Six Nations, the image of a test rugby player in goggles was an arresting one. The playmaker has often jumped hurdles. In love with the sport since the age of three, McKinley made do playing Gaelic Football and hockey until he could play rugby at 12 — though even then, he was at a non-rugby school. He could not wait for the next step. “I literally did my last exam and the next day went into the Leinster academy,” McKinley says of joining one of rugby’s premier clubs, in Dublin. “Straight away you’re training with the likes of Brian O’Driscoll and Gordon D’Arcy so …

After 15 years, the Mars Opportunity rover’s mission has ended

(CNN)It’s time to say goodbye to Opportunity. The Mars rover’s team made its last attempt to contact Opportunity on Tuesday night, and it went unanswered. On Wednesday, NASA confirmed that the mission is over. Solar-powered Opportunity hasn’t communicated with engineers since June 10. Dust has blocked out sunlight, and even the expected winds from November through January haven’t helped clear Opportunity’s sensors and panels. Engineers tried different things to revive Opportunity, sending repeated signals and commands to attempt to fix other potential issues. They’ve sent more than 835 recovery commands that remain unanswered.

Concern over Brexit effect on Irish rugby
