Beyonc é Just Sent an Army of Beyoncés to Break the Internet
When Beyoncé posted a photo of her one-month-old twins, Sir Carter and Rumi, on Instagram in July, the internet predictably went into meltdown. The picture received more than 700,000 likes within half an hour of its publication, and within 24 hours it had spawned numerous parodies on social media. But less than three months later, the Formation singer has broken the internet again, this time with six stunning images posted on her Instagram page, where the superstar boasts a whopping 106 million followers (and follows no one in return). The most recently-posted three pictures show an army of 16 Beyoncés standi...

Jimmy Kimmel: If Trump Is Qualified to Talk Health Care, So Am I
The most unlikely crusader against Senate Republicans’ latest push to repeal Obamacare has been late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who kept up the charge for a third night on Thursday. Kimmel’s latest pushback came after President Donald Trump claimed Wednesday night on Twitter that he would not sign the new Senate bill, known as Graham-Cassidy, “if it did not include coverage of pre-existing conditions. It does!” Kimmel objected to this — just as many health care experts have. “For Donald Trump, this isn’t about the Graham-Cassidy bill,” Kimmel said. “It’s a...

Trump Said China Told Banks to Stop Dealing With North Korea. China Says That ’s Not True
(BEIJING) — President Donald Trump’s announcement that Beijing told its banks to stop dealing with North Korea is “not consistent with the facts,” a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said Friday, but he gave no indication what steps China might be taking. The spokesman, Lu Kang, said Beijing complies with U.N. Security Council resolutions. The council has told member countries to ban most activity abroad by North Korea’s banks in response to its nuclear and missile tests. Asked at a regular briefing about Trump’s comment, Lu said, “As far as I know, what you have mentioned just n...

A Brief History of North Korea ’s Insults Toward World Leaders
The war of words continues to escalate between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who on Thursday referred to the head of state as a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.” This most recent barb followed Trump’s remarks at his debut address to the U.N. General Assembly in New York, where he warned that the U.S. would “totally destroy North Korea” if forced to defend itself or its allies. It is rare to hear such language from an American leader, but not so from Pyongyang. State-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) has been the vessel for many an insult over the years, directe...

3 Ways the United Nations Is Helping the World (and 2 Ways It Can ’t)
Former UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold once remarked that the UN “was created not to lead mankind to heaven but to save humanity from hell.” Put another (less poetic) way, the UN is better at helping the world cope with crises than at preventing or ending them. This week’s UN General Assembly has confirmed as much; here, five global challenges the UN can, and can’t solve: 1. North Korea Let’s begin with something the UN can do very little to resolve: the North Korea standoff. There are three reasons for that. First, the “carrot” the UN wields—the lifting of economic sa...

The Search for Mexico ’s Earthquake Survivors Enters a Fourth Day, With Some Successes
(MEXICO CITY) —Survivors are still being pulled from rubble in Mexico City as rescue operations stretch into a fourth day Friday, spurring hope among desperate relatives gathered at the sites of buildings collapsed by a magnitude 7.1 earthquake. Mexico’s federal police said several people were lifted out of the debris of two buildings Thursday. Rescuers removed or broke through slabs until they found cracks that allowed workers to wiggle through to reach the victims, then lift them to safety. The city government said 60 people in all had been rescued since the quake hit at midday Tuesday. Still, with the hours...

The FDA Is Coming Around to the Idea That Cheese, Microbes, and Mold Can Work Just Fine
Fuzzy ashen mold billows around wheels of cheese stacked on wooden planks at La Ferme de L’Abérieux. Inside its cheese cave nestled in the hills of Cordon, southeastern France, proprietor Albert Bottollier Depois removes one wheel and lowers it to the wide eyes of two children. “Mushrooms,” he says threading his fingers through the cloudy wreath of fungus forming the cheese’s distinctive crust. For a stronger cheese, he’ll even pierce the rind so it seeps in and blooms in the eyes. This is a Tomme de Savoie, one of France’s most distinguished and sought-after cheeses. And yet it h...
