International Women’s Rugby League Matches Have Banned Transgender Women.

The dispute resolution organization for rugby league has prohibited transgender women from participating in women's international matches until further notice. The International Rugby League has joined other sports organizations in restricting male-to-female transgender athletes from competing in women's divisions, including the International Swimming Federation (FINA) and the International Cycling Union (UCI). In a statement, the IRL said it is "continuing work to review and update rules" and will "seek to use the upcoming World Cup to help develop a comprehensive inclusion policy." The transition policy is not in effect for the Women's Rugby League World Cup, which begins in England on October 15. "Until further research is completed to enable the IRL to implement a formal transgen...

Kim Keeps Her Fashion Superhero Appearance Coming.

Kim Kardashian is known for setting the internet ablaze with her fashion choices. But many of the outfits that cause the most controversy are ones that feel more appropriate for a Marvel movie than real life, such as her viral masked moment at the 2021 Met Gala, when she showed up in a black Balenciaga leather trench and bug-eyed shades. This week, Kardashian was spotted in two looks fit for a stylish blockbuster heroine. The first outfit included a black figure-hugging bodysuit, black Knife boots, black cat-eye shades, and a silver diamanté Le Cagole bag (all by her favourite brand, Balenciaga). Later that day, Kim opted for red, white and blue pantaboots, a white cropped T-shirt and black wraparound sunglasses. Again it was all Balenciaga everything. It's clear that the Skims found...

Hong Kong Bid Farewell To Jumbo Kingdom, The World’s Largest Floating Restaurant.

At about 7 a.m. on June 14, a dozen tugboats arrived at the Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter's southwest bay to tow away Jumbo Kingdom seafood restaurant in Hong Kong. Locals gathered along the waterfront to give the restaurant its final farewell. Estimating around 260 feet in length, the goliath three-story Jumbo Floating Restaurant was well known for its colossal green and red neon sign perusing "foon ying gwong lam," Chinese for "welcome." In its prime, it was important for the biggest drifting eatery on the planet. For almost 50 years, it was the fundamental boat of Jumbo Kingdom, which likewise incorporated the more seasoned and more modest sister eatery boat Tai Pak (tracing all the way back to 1952), a flatboat for fish tanks, a 130-foot-long kitchen boat and eight little ships to shi...
Taking A Draining Putt At The US Open, A Golf Player Became Annoyed.

Taking A Draining Putt At The US Open, A Golf Player Became Annoyed.

Two-time Major tournament winner Justin Thomas has had many happy Saturdays playing golf. The third round at the 2022 US Open is unlikely to rank among the others. The writing was perhaps on the wall before the first over of Justin's day at Edgewood. Thomas' opening drive was called out by mistake, which prompted a bemused reaction from the American. Following a solid start of three consecutive pars, confusion made way for fury at the fourth hole when his tee shot landed in a drain in the center of the fairway. Not afforded a drop, he proceeded to play his ball as it lay, with his errant shot sailing into a bunker well short of the green. Looking down at the drain in disgust before his ball had even landed, Thomas could be heard saying on Sky Sports' broadcast: "That's what pisses me of...

Kit Harington Is Reportedly On Board For A Jon Snow Spinoff Of ‘Game Of Thrones’.

Game of Thrones fans may not have seen the last of Jon Snow. The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the adaptation of HBO's Game of Thrones hit show was entering into early development. Kit Harrington, who played the beloved Jon Snow in the series, is in line to potentially reprise his role. The Jon Snow-centered television show is intended to be put out after the events of "Game of Thrones," which ended in 2019 after almost a decade. HBO has declined to comment on reports that the network is considering a spinoff of "Game of Thrones." Representatives for actor Kit Harrington, who played Jon Snow in the hit HBO series, did not immediately respond to request for comment. The reopening of Jon Snow's story would upend the divisive eighth-and-final season and provide a chance for viewers t...

Lawmakers Urge Google To Remove Misleading Results In Searches For Abortion Clinics.

Democratic members of Congress have espoused Google in their efforts to prevent return results for abortion ambulotories from surfacing in search engines and ads related to abortion that appear to be legit that direct individuals to sites that oppose the process. They argue that after such searches, medical practitioners may accidentally mislead the population into thinking dubious abortion methods are safe, putting women's health in danger. Lawmakers Mark Warner and Elissa Slotkin said in a letter sent Friday to Google CEO Sundar Pichai that if the company does not limit anti-abortion clinics from appearing in the Google Search and Maps results for abortion services, it should label search results to clearly show whether a clinic in its results actually provides abortions. "Directing w...

The Love Island Was Rife With Graft Without Addition Of New Clothing Accessories.

When we read the headlines—Love Island Dumps Fast Fashion! Ebay Sponsor Saves Environment!—and buckle in for a series of feel-good clothing underscored by an “eat, sleep, rewear, repeat” mentality, we don’t expect much from it. But two weeks into ITV2’s holiday dating camp, how many repeat wears have we witnessed aside from the criminal espadrille wedges Love Islanders are wedded to, and the Yeezy-style slides even Kanye West struggles to pull off (sorry Luca)? This year’s ITV2 series got off to a promising start. With contestants wearing a mix of their own clothes and pre-loved pieces sourced from Ebay by stylist Amy Bannerman, we witnessed Dami wearing a blue Pleats Please Issey Miyake shirt, Tasha modelling an old-school studded Diesel dress, and Amber sporting a Chanel brooch on her wh...

Dakota Johnson Has Mastered The Art Of Wearing Sexy Suits.

Dakota Johnson’s style playbook is as eclectic as they come. She puts her uniquely gothic twist on red-carpet dressing, dazzling in a feathered pink Gucci gown at the Vanity Fair Oscars party this year, while also loving a good suit. Earlier that same day, she wore two precision-cut looks – both of which erred on the sultry side – during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Spotted out in New York City, the 32-year-old actor wore a velvety black suit by Patou that featured a double-breasted blazer and wide-leg tailored trousers. Johnson accessorised the look with black Jimmy Choo sandals, black square-frame sunglasses, and Patou circular brass earrings. At the premiere of her film Cha Cha Real Smooth at the Tribeca Film Festival, actress Dakota Johnson opted for another sexy tailored ...

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...
