  • North Korea tells Brit diplomats to get out — then sets chilling April 10 deadline

    The Sun ^ | 4/5/13 | Jack Losh
    Crackpot Kim Jong-un’s regime today issued a chilling threat to British diplomats warning them to get out of Pyongyang. Alarmingly the North Korean government said it would not be able to guarantee the safety of embassies from April 10. Russian diplomats have also been advised to evacuate. Today the Foreign Office added that it is “considering next steps” after the threat. It is still unclear why next Wednesday has been set as a deadline – but it is sure to spark fears despot Kim Jong-un will launch an attack after that date.

    Telegraph (UK) ^ | 8:55PM BST 12 Jul 2011 | By Richard Blackden
    The minutes of June's gathering of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) – the body that sets interest rates in the US – show that some officials believe fresh stimulus may need to be considered while others estimate that the risk of stoking inflation is now too high for such actions. The FOMC last month ended its controversial policy of quantitative easing, which saw the central bank buy $600bn (£377bn) of government bonds from banks and insurance companies in an effort to keep long-term interest rates low. Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the Fed, indicated in April that a further...

    The liberal and left-wing reaction against Fox News political commentator Brit Hume's comments on Fox News Sunday this week telling Tiger Woods to turn his life around by leaving Buddhism and becoming a Christian has been startling. One MSNBC host said that Hume's comments "diminished" Christianity and that his "Christian friends" agreed with him. Then, bloggers on radical left-wing websites like The Huffington Post began insulting Brit Hume for daring to mention Christianity in a positive light. Finally, comic lightweight Jon Stewart and one of his goofy commentators on Tuesday night's episode of "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central weighed...

    Men scared of being 'girly' Men are embarrassed to buy beauty products in public for fear of being thought effeminate. According to the Mirror research suggest men in the UK spend £45.50 a year on personal care products - less than the French, Germans, Dutch and Americans. The Datamonitor survey found over a third of men think it's girly to worry about their appearance, though a quarter borrow their partner's lotions. Analysts blame the "macho culture" for men not being more like David Beckham, with his sarong, hairband and painted nails.

Bush jumped up and joined Yoko at the socialite-studded after-party for Jennifer Nicholson's fashion show, prompting partygoers to throw flowers and hundreds of dollars in cash at the feet of Bush and Yoko. Commenting on the trays of margaritas and Veuve Clicquot champagne delivered to Bush's table before her gutsy performance, one wag quipped, "I hope the Secret Service is driving her home." Socialites Amanda Hearst, Elisabeth Kieselstein-Cord and Tinsley Mortimer hosted the "Magic Carpet Ride"-themed bash and post-show supper at adjoining restaurant Sette. The glammy guests included Ivanka Trump (hand-in-hand with Q-Tip heir and "Born Rich" director Jamie Johnson), Muffie-Potter Aston, Somers Farkas, Kimberly Stewart and Robert De Niro's ex-wife, Grace Hightower.

    <p>WHILE men the world over drooled over the latest cover of Esquire, which featured Britney Spears mimicking a famed 1966 Angie Dickinson photo, Spears herself was livid. Sources say the singer - who appears in less and less clothing with each successive magazine cover - was "humiliated" by her bottom-baring pose, which had her standing sideways in a skin-tight sweater and white stilettos. The photo was shot by James White for Esquire's "70 Years of Women We Love" issue. "Britney thinks the pictures are too naked and is really angry at Esquire," a magazine insider said. "But really, is she out of her mind? I mean, her brother was at the shoot. Exploited? Is she crazy? Look at the photos she has done for everyone else. The Rolling Stone cover was practically naked, too - but she wasn't exploited by them?" Relations between Esquire and Spears have been frosty ever since editor David Granger thought he had an exclusive on the pop tart - and then she posed for other magazines without telling him. A rep for Spears declined comment.</p>
