To Check Into A Great Hotel For A Vacation In Italy, Look At Puglia.

Puglia was long overlooked as a tourist destination, known only for its heel-shaped peninsula and small role in the history of Italian unification. In recent years, however, it has become an increasingly popular vacation spot for Italophiles who seek to explore the country beyond its popular coastal regions of Tuscany and Amalfi.   It’s not difficult to see why. The relatively flat landscape features some of the most gorgeous towns in Italy – from the bleached walls of Ostuni to the quaint domed roofs of Alberobello’s traditional trulli – most of which are packed with knotty medieval streets, gleaming white Baroque churches and bustling markets. Around its lengthy coastlines you’ll find some of Italy’s most pristine beaches, from soft white sand to rocky plunge pools with crysta...

South African Charl Schwartzel won the inaugural individual stroke-play competition of the inaugural Saudi Arabian-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series, which took place on Saturday.

William Shatner Wept With Grief After Going To Outer Space.

90-year-old actor, presenter, poet, author, and, more recently, the oldest person ever to travel to space William Shatner shows no signs of slowing down. This fall, he intends to distribute a book, called "Strongly Go," which is charged as a kind of philosophical reflection on his life, vocation, and the "interconnectivity of all things," as per distributer Simon and Schuster. He's likewise the substance of another coding rivalry that will offer the victor an opportunity to travel in excess of 18 miles high in a shuttle esque case tied to an inflatable. (Indeed, truly.) CNN Business found the "Star Trek" legend this week in a far reaching interview. Here is a fast recap.   How he responded to going to space   Shatner was Amazon pioneer Jeff Bezos' welcomed visitor o...

Paramedic From Utah Bought A One-Way Ticket To Russia When Russia Invaded Ukraine.

Local police drive us to a remote section of a Utah valley where they say a unit of foreign fighters is stationed. The region resembles the one in some parts of Ukraine that were recently struck by shelling. The structures are leveled and bomb craters are visible all over the place. The distant rumble of outgoing artillery can be heard as we walk under the cover of trees. A small snake slithers by and quickly disappears. We walk up a small ramp and into a courtyard where soldiers are hurriedly packing up a vehicle in which they plan to head for the front lines. American accents are heard back and forth on their radio comms. Surprised and baffled to see a group of journalists, they wave us away. Clearly, they have other pressing matters. But after some calls with their commander, we're t...

French Parliamentary Elections Were Eclipsed By Low Turnout.

On the evening of Macron's re-election, his party's centrist alliance, Ensemble, has an increased risk of losing its majority in parliament of just weeks. Polling suggested German Chancellor Angela Merkel's centre-right alliance Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and Free Democratic Party (FDP) with the leftist coalition New Ecological and Social People's Union (NUPES) neck and neck. According to results announced Sunday evening, Ensemble has won 25.37 percent (5.1 million votes), while the pan-left NUPES led by Jean-Luc Mélenchon have gained 24.31 percent (4.9 million votes). A second round of voting is scheduled for June 19. If after that Ensemble falls short of the 289 threshold for an absolute majority—which major pollsters are projecting as a possibility—Macron will become the first ...

Why Aren’t Others Discussing How The Pandemic Affects The Rise Of Periods?

I got Covid after a good stretch of avoiding it. I anticipated mild cold symptoms that some people I had spoken with had talked about, but it wasn't to be. I only had two weeks of confinement and emerged feeling weak and tearful and substantially depleted. That is entirely normal; official counsel lets you know that you're probable not to feel like your old self for a decent couple of weeks post-infection. So while it's not exceptionally decent, it's normal. What's more, I felt fortunate to be inoculated and not massively sick thus. Yet, I didn't expect that my period would choose not to appear. Days went by and I started to consider what was happening. Once more, it's not absolutely surprising for your feminine cycle to escape whack when you've been debilitated. Fortunately your body i...

Vex has made brilliant science fiction isolates and noisy plastic dresses for Kim - see the bra and tights she wor...

Hunter Wears That Uber Third Rare Tom Ford-Era Gucci Top.

Earlier this week, Halsey stepped out in a pair of slinky trousers with an overlay of mesh shorts; up top, she wore a Tom Ford-era Gucci tank top. But this wasn’t just any run-of-the-mill commercial tank top from Ford’s reign at the Italian house. No, this was an extremely limited edition piece—a rayon-viscose clingy black tank top (also in white) that comes with two flossy leather straps affixed with a modernist silver G buckle. On the runway, the piece was styled with a matching skirt that also included the embedded leather straps. The original price tag shows that this piece retailed for $980 as part of the spring/summer 1998 collection at Gucci. Halsey’s stylist Lyn Alyson took to Instagram to credit Tab Vintage for helping her source it—and for anyone who wants to buy their own versio...

Tesla Shares Are About To Get Much Cheaper.

The price of Tesla shares is about to decrease by three times. The company recently announced that it approved a 3-for-1 stock split. The shelved split would need to get reviewed and cleared by shareholders in the company's annual meeting in August. Tesla (TSLA) shut Friday at somewhat more than $696 per share. In the event that the split were to happen today, its shares would be valued at $232 an offer.   You can definitely relax, Tesla investors (which is essentially everybody with a retirement account, nowadays) - - your stakes will in any case merit something very similar. You'll hold multiple times more offers no matter what.   Organizations split their stocks for various reasons: Splits can put their stock inside the scope of more modest, individual financ...
