Selena Gomez’s Puma collection contains secret details

OHMYGOSSIP — Selena Gomez’s second Puma collection contains hidden messages about her life.
The 26-year-old singer released her much-anticipated new fashion line with the sportswear giant on Wednesday (15.05.19), and the star has revealed that she included subtle details about her past in her designs, including the “coordinates” of her Grand Prairie, Texas “hometown”.
There are semi colons referenced to represent the tattoo she got with the cast of Netflix’s ’13 Reasons Why’ – which she is executive producer of – that has become a symbol for the battle with depression and a new life chapter.
She told US Glamour: “I’ve put everything from some of my tattoos, my birthdate, the coordinates of my hometown — even working with lupus and having an artist create a box for a shoe that I release where some of the proceeds are able to go to that.
“I try to find original ways of doing it. Every single thing that I do in my career and my life, I just feel so grateful. So most of the time, I try to put a little piece of me in [it].”
And Selena loves to keep her wardrobe simple and “sophisticated”.
She added: “I love trying new things, but I generally love pieces that I feel very sophisticated, sexy, and classy in. I personally don’t want anything that’s too distracting.
“I like to be chill. I don’t overthink anything. I’ll put things together randomly–put on a sweater, throw on a belt with it, maybe wear a skirt or something. It just depends on where I’m at, mentally. I mean, half of fashion is being confident, I think.”
The ‘I Can’t Get Enough’ hitmaker also insisted that her attitude to fashion can come and go, but for the majority of the time, she “loves” it.
She continued: “I go through periods where I’m absolutely in love with fashion, and then I go through periods where I’m like, ‘I don’t know what to wear, I don’t know what’s cool.’ And I’m going to just do my own thing.”

The secret to glowing spot-free skin even on your period

Words by Maisie Bovingdon

Spots.  We all get them, and we all hate them.  As much as we try to cover them up with concealer or foundation, they still manage to make themselves seen.

There are a whole host of reasons why we suddenly breakout, but the main culprit is hormonal changes, especially throughout a woman’s menstrual cycle.

Within a 28-day cycle our complexion can change drastically; from crystal clear one minute, to pussy pimples the next, super dry and flaky to oily and unpleasantly shiny. We just can’t win.

But experts at Swedish brand FOREO has revealed exactly why our skin changes in the run up to our period, during and afterwards, and the tips to take to have radiant and acne-free skin even if it is your TOTM.

best way to cover a spot

Stage 1: The Menstrual Phase (Day 1 to 5)

The first phase starts with day one of your period, and it tends to be the peak time of the month when we are most vulnerable to breakouts *sigh *.

Within the first few days of Aunty Flo making her return some some people may feel spots brewing under the skin’s surface, and redness around the face, which means the dreaded zit is planning to show its face – literally.

During this time our bodies start to produce excess oestrogen, which triggers the production of oil and sebum, and causes skin – the main contributors to spots.

As much as we may feel sluggish during our period, it is paramount we take extra care of our skin by gently exfoliating and cleansing the face, especially the T-zone, which is often the main problem area as it is the most oily, as well as our chin, and around the nose too.

To use: FOREO recommend the Luna mini 2 device, with its small brushes that can removed 99.5% of dirt hiding in all crevices.

Stage 2: The Follicular Phase (Day 5 to 15)

The mid-point in a woman’s cycle is when we notice our skin has become dry and flaky, in comparison to the week before, which left us feeling like a grease ball, all because our oestrogen levels have dropped.

During these 10 days our skin, and body, is crying out for some extra TLC.  While last week we needed to cleanse, cleanse, cleanse, now it is time to hydrate yourself to repair the skin’s barrier after a week of going through the wars (well that’s what it feels like anyway, right?)

Hydrating masks, deeply nourishing moisturisers, vitamin sprays, and simply drinking all the H20 will work wonders on the skin and help to achieve the desired glow.

To use: Foreo H2Overdose UFO Advanced Collection Mask or Ultra Hydrating Face Mask for Dry Skin, which is infused with hyaluronic acid to combat dry skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Face wash

Face wash

Stage 3: The Luteal Phase (Day 15 to 28)

No, we didn’t know it was called that either, but it’s the last leg of your cycle, and the prime time to show off your radiant skin in all the selfies your camera roll can handle.

During these two-weeks ahead of your next period your blood circulation will increase, thanks to oestrogen, which instantly leaves us looking fresh faced with a bit more colour in our cheeks.  Although oestrogen will start to rise again it is not to the point where our face becomes too oily.

Our skin in this fortnight will easily absorb ingredients, which is why we still need to be mindful what we put on our skin, and in our bodies too.

A FOREO expert has advised women to use cleansers containing amino acids, and antioxidants including vitamin E and vitamin C, to boost cell function, collagen and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots and UV damage.

To use: FOREO advise using the Micro-Foam Cleanser because its lightweight formula, which is filled with skin-replenishing amino acids and vitamins, will provide a deep but gentle cleanse.

Spot-free, glowing skin all year round we’re ready for you!

Note: Every woman’s skin and menstrual cycle is different depending on their hormones, so listen to your skin too.

The Secret Service Agent Who Jailed the KKK and Paved the Way to Guantanamo

Amazon

On the night of September 2, 1871, several members of the Ku Klux Klan locked up Henry Lowther, a black farmer from Georgia whom they accused of plotting an armed uprising of black men and sleeping with white women. Two nights later, 180 Klansmen took Lowther from his cell, tied him up, and led him to a swamp, where they threatened to lynch or castrate him.

They chose the latter.

Atrocities like these were not uncommon in the South after the Civil War, which was why the United States Secret Service set up a clandestine unit to infiltrate and destroy the Klan.  In Freedom’s Detective: The Secret Service, The Ku Klux Klan and the Man Who Masterminded America’s First War On Terror, author Charles Lane tells how Hiram C. Whitley, then head of the Secret Service, ran this anti-terrorist operation, and how some of his methodology continues to influence today’s war on groups like Isis and Al Qaeda.

Did you spot the secret message sewn on Emilia Clarke’s Game of Thrones premiere dress?

What does it all mean?

REX

Game of Thrones season eight is on its way – and we officially can’t wait.

Our past few months have been dominated by Game of Thrones news and updates, from the emergence of the teaser trailer to theories about what’s to come in Westeros, with the Season 8 premiere taking place just this week.

sophie turner game of thrones finale

Sky / HBO

It’s hardly surprising therefore this is what dominated the news this month, rather than Sophie Turner confessing to being banned from washing her hair during filming or Kit Harrington taking one of his props as a momento.

Emilia Clarke made the most news. The actress became a talking point this month for opening up about tragically suffering two brain aneurysms. And then, the realisation that we’ve all been pronouncing her character Daenerys Targaryen’s title ‘Khaleesi’ wrong made her even more of a conversation topic.

REX

It was the 32-year-old’s premiere dress however that made the most noise at the Game of Thrones New York premiere, with the actress donning an aquamarine Valentino gown for the occasion.

Eagle-eyed viewers however spotted that there was more to this dress than originally meets the eye, with the gown seeming to be embroidered with a quote, hidden behind a transparent layer of chiffon.

No, it’s not a GoT spoiler – Valentino designer Pierpaolo Piccioli featured quotes on all of his new collection, getting the help of four poets to create the wording.

The lines of choice on Emilia’s dress?

‘Leave your door open for me. I might sleepwalk into your arms’.

Mike Thalassitis hinted at secret struggle with depression on social media just months before his tragic death

MIKE Thalassitis liked a series of online posts and articles about mental health in the months prior to his tragic death at the weekend.

The Love Island star, 26, was found hanged in woodland near his North London home following a secret six month battle with depression.

Prior to his death, the former semi-pro footballer liked a post about the condition from brain coach Jim Kwik.

It read: “The truth is, none of us really know how much someone else is hurting.

“We could be standing right beside someone who feels completely broken or facing the battle of their lives and have no idea.

“Be kind, always.”

The popular reality star also liked a Guardian article raising awareness of anxiety and depression.

Mike openly spoke to friends about taking anti-depressants[/caption]

Published in January, columnist Gaby Hinsliff looked at how exercise and hobbies such as cooking can have a positive effect on mental well-being.

Another tweet liked by Mike, suggested he was focused on a brighter future.

The post read: “Try not to watch anyone else next year, everyone’s timing is different.

“Your time will come just focus on yourself and have a better year than the last.

“Learn from your mistakes and use them to build yourself.

“If next year’s not your year, make it count towards the year that will be.”

Earlier today The Sun Online exclusively revealed how Mike was secretly battling depression for at least six months before his tragic death.

Rex Features

The star was excited about his new business outside of the showbiz world Love Island brought him[/caption]

A close friend said the star had been taking anti-depressants since September after an “absolutely horrible” time.

They explained: “Mike was openly talking to people about the awful time he’d been having lately and he had lots of good friends who were supporting him.

“Everybody knew he was taking anti-depressants, but he insisted to friends that he was sorting himself out and things were ‘getting better’.

“Mike was very open and honest about his feelings and admitted life had gone downhill after his Love Island fame had started to wane – but he was looking forward to the future and his new business.

“He spoke about how he longed to return to his old life and play football again with his mates. His old club Margate FC were even open to him coming back as a player.

BPM Media

Mike longed to return to his roots as a lower-league player[/caption]

“However, Mike was too down; he was convinced he wasn’t good enough, said he wasn’t fit enough and feared he wouldn’t be accepted as a footballer again.”

The friend explained how Mike missed the football world, where he was known simply as ‘Thala’ rather than the ‘Muggy Mike’ moniker he’d gained on Love Island.

Between 2010 and 2017, he played as a striker for teams including Stevenage,  Chelmsford City and Margate.

They explained: “Mike loved the parties and hanging out with his showbiz pals but someone called him ‘Thala’ the other week and he was thrilled. He said: ‘It’s so nice to hear that again.’

“Ultimately, he would have loved to return to playing – but he was just too depressed to make the leap.”

Mike’s pals were astonished by his tragic death because all signs were pointing to a massive change in fortunes for the star.

He had just finished filming the forthcoming series of MTV’s Ex On The Beach.

Also, his beloved restaurant The Skillet, a joint venture with footballer pal Scott Neilson, was due to open which he was hugely excited about – with the pair even having sent out invites to the grand opening.

Splash News

He had been obsessed with everything to do with his new venture[/caption]

The pal told us: “Mike was so thrilled about his restaurant and would talk about it non-stop. Everyone was convinced he was getting better as he was so passionate about his new venture.”

They added: “He was involved in everything from the menus to the colour of the walls and spoke about how excited he was about it right up until the night before he died.

“It’s a tragedy that he will never get to see all his brilliant plans come to fruition.”

YOU'RE NOT ALONE

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others.

You’re Not Alone.

The secret Ibiza addresses you need to know about

Georgiana Huddart, co-founder of Hunza G, shares her top things to do in Ibiza

My favourite beach is…

Xucla Beach in the North, it’s so romantic – it’s a little cove beach with an amazing xiringuito that does the best garlic gambas. It has a cave you can swim through and you can walk around the coastline on the rocks and jump off into crystal sea.

My favourite dress shop is…

Vicente Ganesha, in Ibiza town, that not that many people know about, it has the most incredible dresses! Multi layered flamenco dresses. I have worn this blue one so many times and lent it to tonnes of friends, I don’t think I have ever worn it and not been asked where it’s from.

Annie’s in Ibiza is also a great shop for amazing vintage finds and cool current brands. Annie stocks: Rixo, De La Vali, Clio Peppiat, Isabelle Moore & Graham Cruz.

My favourite club is…

DC10 on Monday night for Circa Loco is the only club I go to in Ibiza as it’s not really a club, it’s half outside, the music is incredible, and you can party with planes flying over your head as it’s right next to the airport.

My favourite daytime excursion is…

Going to Formentera for the day is also something everyone goes to Ibiza should do, it’s lovely and has great restaurants and crystal clear sea.

My favourite restaurant is…

Cicale, beautiful as it’s in a very remote countryside location, you sit on a patio with fairy lights and olive trees around you, plus the the food is wonderful and they have a small boutique with wonderful jewellery and trinkets.

Does Beyoncé have a secret archive of celebrity throwback photos? 

Does Beyoncé have a secret archive of celebrity throwback photos? 


Does Beyoncé have a secret archive of celebrity throwback photos? 

Beyoncé is a curated queen, and as much is evident on her Instagram page. It is, for the most part, a collection of highly professional photos of Bey and her every show-stopping outfit, often uploaded in sets of threes—like a good influencer does.

However, there is one notable exception to Yoncé’s enigmatic social media veil: her birthday tributes. Bey loves to celebrate her famous friends, but she’s not one to post a selfie and call it a day. No, the living legend has a very precise method for her birthday tributes, and it certainly bucks tradition.

Taking the Bey out of B-day, the singer posts solo shots of her friends… as children. And it’s really cute, don’t get us wrong, but, like, where does she find all these photos? She’s Beyoncé, so we don’t doubt she has connections, but we prefer to believe that she is somehow, secretly, the owner of a celebrity throwback photo archive (and museum, maybe?) consisting of millions of never-before-seen retro shots.

Though she’s experimented with this method in the past (see below for baby Oprah circa 2015, and lil’ Solange in 2013 and 2015), she’s really upped her game in the past few months, posting tributes for Michelle Obama, Oprah, Kelly Rowland, and a commemorative series for the late Kim Porter.

Heaven couldn’t wait for you. 🙏🏾

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

So, the question remains: Why does Beyoncé choose to celebrate the women in her life with childhood photos? I’m no psychology expert, but my theory is that it has something to do with being a child star herself. Since she rose to superstardom as a teen, maybe she idealizes her childhood as a time that she was able to be and feel her true self, away from the flashbulbs and materialism that naturally seep into celebrity life? ~Just a thought~.

Anyway, celebrity aside, childhood is thought of as the most innocent and therefore truest time in one’s life, and perhaps Bey’s just trying to showcase who her famous friends are at heart. See me after class for more theories.

Thank you for the tribute posts, Bey. We can’t wait to see what adorable throwbacks you unearth next.

Meghan Markle And Michelle Obama Held A Secret ‘Power Meeting In London

(Photo Credit: PR Photos )

Meghan Markle reportedly held a secret “power meeting” with Michelle Obama to discuss  “shared” causes, including promoting girls education around the world.

The dynamic duo met Monday night in London, while the former First Lady was in town to promote her new memoir, “Becoming.”

Per the Standard:

A friend who was also at the event said Meghan “had a long private audience with Michelle. They spoke at length about the importance of supporting and empowering women across all cultures and communities. They also talked about shared experiences of pregnancy and raising children, plus shared causes including girls’ education.”

This encounter comes fresh off the advice the forever FLOTUS publicly shared with the newest member of the Royal Family.

“Like me, Meghan probably never dreamt that she’d have a life like this, and the pressure you feel — from yourself and from others — can sometimes feel like a lot,” Obama said in Good Housekeeping’s January issue. “So my biggest piece of advice would be to take some time and don’t be in a hurry to do anything.”

Obama previously recalled the protocol that she was told to follow when she and Barack Obama made their last official visit to Windsor Castle in 2016. The couple was told they were going to land at the castle in Marine One and then be driven by the Queen, according to the British Press Association.

“People are talking to other people and then you’re briefed, and you’re told, ‘This is going to happen and don’t stand there and don’t touch there and this is precisely what is going on,’” she said.

Netflix’s Dumplin’ Is a Salve for Misfit Teens and Danielle Macdonald Is its Secret Weapon

The new movie Dumplin’, which premieres on Netflix Dec. 7, mixes the pain and acute embarrassment of being a teenager with the sweetness and tension that belie many female relationships. And it boasts a very special ingredient: the can-do spirit and songs of Dolly Parton.

Based on Julie Murphy’s 2015 young adult novel of the same name, Dumplin’ stars Danielle Macdonald, who broke out as an aspiring rapper in 2017’s Sundance darling Patti Cake$ . In it, she plays Willowdean Dixon, a Parton-obsessed Texas teen who struggles with her body image, especially following the death of her beloved aunt, her primary cheerleader in life. Unmoored, Willowdean is left to contend with her mother Rosie (Jennifer Aniston), a former beauty queen and current beauty pageant organizer. Rosie loves her daughter but can’t help making barbed comments about her weight, including constantly calling her “Dumplin’,” a nickname that invites taunts from others.

In a fit of rebellion, Willowdean decides to join the beauty pageant Rosie oversees along with a team of other misfits. Though at first she just wants to irk her mother, she soon finds herself upending beauty standards and claiming her place in the spotlight with the help of friends and a team of drag queens who specialize in dressing like—who else?—Dolly Parton.

Macdonald, 27, says making the film took her back her own adolescence, which was marked by insecurity. “I wanted to do it for my 16-year-old self,” she tells TIME. “There aren’t plus-sized teens represented in film who aren’t made the butt of a joke. I had to be a part of making this a reality.”

Though Dumplin’s Willowdean and Patti Cake$ ‘ Patti couldn’t be more different, the roles are thematically similar. In both films, Macdonald movingly depicts what it’s like to be a young person aspiring for something beyond what she already has. Macdonald particularly relates to Willowdean’s struggle to fit into a culture that has rigid ideals surrounding beauty. Though the character might appear to be thriving—she has good friends and the interest of a cute boy—the loss of her aunt and her complicated relationship with her mother erode her self-esteem.

“You can drive your own self crazy. You don’t have to be in a bad situation or be bullied every day to feel this way,” she says. As a teenager, she recalls, “I was constantly judging myself. That’s really the thing that gets you.”

Working with a female director, Anne Fletcher, and a core cast of mostly women also helped Macdonald to work out her own conflicts about the role. Originally from Australia, she was unfamiliar with the intense world of American beauty pageants, aside from having seen Miss Universe on TV. Pageants seemed “like a very American thing, a faraway movie thing more than reality,” she says.

Many of the girls on set had been involved in beauty pageants, and they offered Macdonald a sense of what drove them to participate in a tradition that many, including her character, at first, look down upon as shallow. “They love it,” she says. “It’s given them a confidence and a sisterhood.” They also helped to ease her anxiety about appearing in a swimsuit and dancing in front of an audience.

Dumplin‘ is propelled by a soundtrack by Parton, whose original song for the film, “Girl in the Movies,” is up for a Golden Globe. With a devotion inspired by her aunt, Willowdean knows every Parton song and shines in the moments during which she loses herself to classics like “9 to 5” and “Jolene.” The singer’s energy, even if it’s not seen, was felt by the entire cast. “Dolly is front and center,” says Macdonald. “She’s like, ‘Go be who you are. I’m going to be me.’”

Macdonald only wishes that more movies like Dumplin’ had been around when she was younger. Girls who watch it now can connect with the feeling of being one’s own harshest judge, she says, and take comfort in knowing that they are not alone. “You may realize you don’t have to be so hard on yourself,” she says. “The big message is: you’re the star in your own life. You don’t have to change, you are who you are. Go and do what you want to do.”

Claire Foy has a secret talent that the Queen probably wouldn’t care for

Watch the queen conquer.

claire foy back pay
Netflix

The day we found out Claire Foy wouldn’t be returning for Netflix’s The Crown was a dark day in our offices, however it’s been amazing to watch how she’s really let her hair down since then. Ever since hanging up her tiara and cloak, she’s taken a role that couldn’t further from the Queen if she tried as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider’s Web and she’s now showed off a secret skill never before seen in Buckingham Palace. So if you’ve ever wanted to imagine a younger Queen Elizabeth laying down a sick beat and rapping flawlessly…Claire Foy’s got your back.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web star recently visited the set of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she chatted about her new projects and what life was like post-Netflix. While on the show, Fallon and the show’s resident band ambushed her.

‘I’ve heard some weird rumour on the internet,’ Jimmy Fallon began.

She instantly did what any sensible person would do and advised him, ‘Never trust the internet.’

Regardless, Fallon charged on and told her, ‘I heard that you know all the lyrics to Rapper’s Delight.’

If you’re not entirely sure what Rapper’s Delight is, it’s an iconic Sugarhill Gang song which starts ‘I said a hip hop’. (You know the one.) The moment Jimmy Fallon outed her love of the Sugarhill Gang however, she burst into laughter immediately and put her head in her hands.

Fallon told her, ‘You can always say no.’

However, he slyly looked over at the audience who cheered her on as the band started to play. And all props to her, Claire Foy took the microphone and proceeded to raise the roof.

You’re going to want to see the video, which is absolutely amazing to watch above. She somehow manages to nail the song while retaining a distinct posh Britishness about her, which is both endearing and hilarious at the same time.

TBH, we’re just annoyed Jimmy Fallon cut her off early as we could have easily watched an hour of her doing rap covers. Please, Claire Foy – drop a rap album. We’re begging you.

Justin Timberlake’s secret book signings

OHMYGOSSIP — Justin Timberlake has been secretly signing copies of his autobiography.
The ‘Cry Me A River’ hitmaker released his memoir ‘Hindsight: And All The Things I Can’t See In Front Of Me’ at the end of last month, and since then, he’s been dropping into book stores at random and taking copies off the shelves to mark them with his signature.
On Wednesday, he took to Instagram and posted a third video of him sneaking into a store – this time Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles – and signing a number of books.
He captioned the video: “Strikes again. Come and get em, part III…(sic)”
The video followed previous similar posts shared by the ‘Filthy’ singer, having visited a different branch of Barnes & Noble two days after the book was released, and a Target store a few days later.
Among the revelations the 37-year-old singer made in his book was the fact he “almost got expelled” from school for smoking when he returned to Tennessee in 1994 after ‘The All-New Mickey Mouse Club’ was cancelled.
He recalled: “I came home a lot more sophisticated and aware than I had been before the show, but I tried to downplay it because I just wanted to seem like everyone else.
“I became the class clown, disrupting class with my bits, not caring if the teachers were mad, only wanting to be accepted by the other kids.
“I started getting in trouble. I smoked pot for the first time. I got myself a can of tobacco and almost got expelled for that.”
Justin – who has three-year-old son Silas with wife Jessica Biel – also admitted he wasn’t always well behaved during his stint on the Disney show as he and liked to team up to cause chaos.
He wrote: “We had employee cards that gave us access to the theme parks for free.
“Ryan and I once stole a golf cart and drove it to the employee entrance for the Tower Of Terror. We went on that ride 12 times in a row.”

She Quit Her Victoria’s Secret Job Over Exec’s Trans Insult

Jocelyn Ratzer had just finished her second day at Victoria’s Secret when she got the news that would make her quit.

Leaving her morning shift at an Orlando shopping center on Saturday, the 24-year-old salesperson spotted an interview with Ed Razek—the chief marketing officer of Victoria’s Secret’s parent company—that made her feel sick. In an interview with Vogue, the executive dismissed the idea of casting trans or plus-size models in the company’s annual fashion show, saying the controversial procession of scantily clad models was meant to be “a fantasy.”

“It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is,” Razek said. “It is the only one of its kind in the world, and any other fashion brand in the world would take it in a minute.”

Kate Middleton and Prince William threw a secret event in Kensington Palace

And everyone’s getting FOMO.

With soon-to-be parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their royal tour in Australia and Pippa Middleton welcoming a baby just this week, the attention has been off Kate Middleton and Prince William.

In fact, we’ve hardly seen the Duchess of Cambridge this year, with Kate taking a maternity leave after the birth of Prince Louis, returning to royal duties just this month.

But given the attention on other members of the royal family, Kate and William managed to throw a secret party in Kensington Palace this week, with the public and press only finding out after the occasion.

The event in question was work-related – a surprise reception for the finalists of this year’s BBC Radio One’s Teen Hero Awards at their Kensington Palace home.

The couple reportedly welcomed teenage finalists to the reception, talking to them about their work as Teen Heroes of 2018.

‘It was such an honour and privilege to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace,’ one of the winners, Siena Castellon, explained to HELLO!. ‘They were both genuinely interested in my website, www.QLMentoring.com, which I created to support and mentor autistic students and students with learning disabilities.’

She continued: ’The Duchess was especially interested in addressing autism stereotypes and was saddened to hear about the severity of the disability-related bullying I have experienced. She congratulated me for being a Diana Award holder and for currently serving on the National Youth Board, a role that has given me a national platform through which to share my disability-based bullying experience. They were both incredibly warm, supportive and encouraging. Meeting them was an awesome experience! They have inspired me continue to make a positive difference in my community.’

The BBC Radio One Teen Awards Ceremony will take place on Sunday, hosted by Greg James.

Unlocking the secret of how the brain encodes speech

People like the late Stephen Hawking are unable to speak because their muscles are paralyzed. Scientists want to help these individuals communicate by developing a brain machine interface to decode the commands the brain is sending to the tongue, palate, lips and larynx. New research has moved science closer by unlocking new information about how the brain encodes speech. They discovered the brain controls speech in a similar way to how it controls arm movements.

QAnoners Say Their QAnon Merch Is Being Banned By Secret Service at Trump Rallies

Leah Millis/Reuters

QAnon conspiracy theorists have begun sneaking their QAnon shirts into Trump rallies amid reports that people wearing the shirts have been turned away by people they claim are Secret Service officers staffing Trump events.

QAnon is founded on a series of anonymous clues posted online by a person named “Q” that purport to show a secret world where Trump is engaged in endless battle with a pedophile cabal of high-ranking Democrats and Trump’s foes will soon be banished to Gitmo. It is an inherently ludicrous idea but one that’s managed to gain a ton of traction through Trump rallies, where attendees regularly show up with Q shirts and signs.

Indeed, the conspiracy theory jumped into the mainstream in July, when a number of people with QAnon shirts and signs were shown on TV at a Trump rally in Florida. Other QAnon supporters who get caught on camera at Trump rallies have earned cryptic shout-outs from Q, and believers in the theory scrutinize Trump’s hand gestures at rallies to claim he’s pointing to QAnon believers.
