An altered image has resurfaced online, claiming to show North Korean generals with medals pinned to their jackets, sleeves and pants.
Russian President Vladimir Putin ’s Doomsday aircraft — the two modernized Ilyushin 96-400M’s that Russia is developing as part of а special project codenamed “Zveno-3C” (Component-3C) — are not museum mockup displays or some props for a Dr. Strangelovian thriller. The specially outfitted planes will serve as Putin’s flying command and control center, from which the Russian spymaster can direct his forces into combat in the event of a nuclear war. The recent development is yet another step in Putin’s preparation for a “shooting” conflict with the United States, which Moscow believes is unavoidable.

Not seven minutes into HBO Max's The Prince, Queen Elizabeth II, her Royal Highness, makes a joke about Italians and says the word fuck. Twice. Not that it's impossible, but it's pretty safe to assume that the House of Windsor did not give the green light to the scathing, sometimes demented animated series that is told through the perspective of Prince George. Duchess Kate Middleton is an alcoholic. Prince Philip is... gray. But the whole thing hinges on George—a flamboyant sassafras of a child who lives with the Royal Family and calls the shots as if he is the only queen who matters.
On Tuesday night in Tokyo, Simone Biles competed in the final Olympic event for the U.S. women’s gymnastics team, winning a bronze medal on the balance beam.

Last time around she had already won gold in the all-around and vault events, in addition to the team’s gold. Yesterday she was happy just to feel safe performing, after pulling out of the team final when a disappointing vault revealed she was suffering from a lack of air awareness.
