The One Thing You’ve Probably Never Noticed About Prince William

 

Though you’ve probably seen a million pictures of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, you might’ve missed one important thing missing from the future king of England’s left hand: his wedding ring.  

While Kate wears a gorgeous sapphire and diamond engagement ring with a Welsh gold wedding band, Prince William doesn’t wear one. As pointed out by Business Insider, the Prince didn’t receive one during his 2011 wedding to the Duchess, according to the royal wedding’s official program. 

His aversion to rings was attributed to personal preference, but it’s actually quite common for the British upper class to skip the relatively new custom.

“It is not unusual at all for men from the upper sets in Britain to shun wearing a wedding band,” etiquette expert William Hanson told Harper’s Bazaar. “This is not because of any intentions that they may wish to play away from home once married, but because it was traditionally not the done thing for gentlemen to wear jewellery. Years ago, this even included watches, but even hardened snobs have relaxed on that front.” 

Scroll though below to check out more photos of Prince William’s jewelry-free hands:

 

 

 

We wonder what Prince Harry will do when his time comes!

US NOT ‘Optimistic’ about Adel Al-Jubier

Donald Trump’s likely Secretary of State, Rudy Giuliani: “Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs was not so good at lobbying with republicans during the rule of Malik Salman. To strengthen its relations with US, Saudi Arabia needs an alternative pick.”

As a local officer for Saudi Embassy in US, Adel al-Jubeir formerly worked as a translator and middleman for Al-Saud. In order to get citizenship in US, he had relations with CIA’s low ranking staff. Since he has been appointed as Saudi’s Foreign Minister, Americans have not much interest to have company with the fellow.

A mosque burnt in Texas, US

Soon after taking his oath, the hateful leadership started sailing towards every possible anti Muslim initiatives. Entry of at least people from seven Muslim countries is barred into the so called land of freedom.

A central mosque in the city of Houston, Texas was destroyed after being burnt most probably by an extremist group. The mosque had been a target of anti Islam hatred. The media has explained that the anti Muslim slogan raised by Trump is encouraging these kind of acts.

It is interesting to know that America claims itself to be the flag bearer of democracy and development while the people specially the minorities are in a big threat in this country while this incident is just one example amongst many other.

Congress Proposes the Bill to Attack Iran; Military Bases in Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, and Armenia in Alert Mode; Trump’s Secret Plan about Iran + VIDEO

While the protests against the temporary law banning 7 countries of the Muslim world entering the United States are still underway, the congress proposed a bill to encourage the president attacking one of these countries. Donald Trump has criticized the nuclear agreement between Iran and 5+1 group many times during his presidential campaign. After the election, however, no traces of repealing of the agreement has been traced in his words.

http://youtu.be/DIDOELdaChA

“To authorize the use of the United States Armed Forces to achieve the goal of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons” is the title of the bill asking the president to have the option of military attack against Iran on the table. Nevertheless, the fact is that this bill is not directly related with the nuclear program of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The congress is giving the president the authorization to attack a country after about a decade. The operative sentence in the resolution reads, “The President is authorized to use the Armed Forces of the United States as the President determines necessary and appropriate in order to achieve the goal of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.” The war with Iran will be the decision to take more authoritative control in the Middle East and support the long-time ally; Israel.

United states' military base in Turkey.

This is while the big powers are planning to attend in the military operation called “Unified Trident” at the end of this month. The new saber-rattling in Persian Gulf will be meaningful for Iran and may lead to more tensions in the region. There are also reports that the United States is founding a military base in Turkmenistan secretly. The aggressive words of the previous candidate are turning into a violent operation in his presidency for which the congress issued a permission. The feedback from Iran will be determinative in the speed and direction of the moves. By and large, Trump will have no easy job controlling the worldwide reactions to his potential decision.

The congress, in a latent act, is giving the president the authorization to attack a country after about a decade. The operative sentence in the resolution reads, “The President is authorized to use the Armed Forces of the United States as the President determines necessary and appropriate in order to achieve the goal of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.” The war with Iran will not be comparable with any other American wars in the previous decades.

Russian IMMENSE & DREADFUL Arctic Army; Vladimir Putin Launches World’s first Nuclear Icebreaker Fleet

RUSSIA has launched the world’s first and largest nuclear icebreaker fleet in a bid to resurrect an immense arctic army, larger than the Soviet Union’s, it has been revealed.

According to officials and military analysts, the Russian President is rushing to reopen abandoned Soviet military, air and radar bases on outer Arctic islands.

In what is believed to be Putin’s attempt to rival Canada’s, America’s and Norway’s developed arctic regions.

Professor Pavel Makarevich, a member of the Russian Geographical Society said: “Under [former Soviet leader Mikhail] Gorbachev and [former Russian President Boris] Yeltsin, our Arctic border areas were stripped bare.

“Now they are being restored.”

According to the Independent, Russia is building numerous nuclear icebreakers, to bolster its fleet of around 40 breakers, most of which are nuclear.

No other country has a nuclear breaker fleet, which used to clear channels for military and civilian ships, the newspaper reported.

James Mattis, the US Defence Secretary said Washington officials have noted Putin’s moves and claimed it was not in Washington’s “advantage to leave any part of the world” to others.

News of Putin’s arctic army comes hours after reports suggest Putin and Trump could meet before July’s G20 summit.

Sergei Shoigu, the defence minister, is presiding over the reopening or creation of six military facilities, some of which will be ready by the end of the year.

Mikhail Barabanov, editor-in-chief of Moscow Defence Brief said: “The modernisation of Arctic forces and of Arctic military infrastructure is taking place at an unprecedented pace not seen even in Soviet times."

Vladimir Blinov, a guide on the Soviet Union’s nuclear icebreaker told the Independent: “History is repeating itself. We beat the Americans and built the world’s first nuclear ship [the Lenin]. The situation today is similar.”

Yes.

Show this to people who say Obama started the 'Muslim' travel ban

Picture: MARK WILSON/GETTY IMAGES

The countries in Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ were 'chosen' by the Obama Administration

The seven nations from which travel to the US has been temporarily suspended by President Donald Trump, were first outlined as 'countries of concern' by the US Congress in 2015.

Restrictions on their citizens' access to a visa waiver programme were part of a law signed by President Obama in December 2015.

Conservatives have used this to argue against critics of the bill, as if the hand holding the pen was what protestors at JFK airport had a problem with.

Yet the origins of Trump's ban on citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen are less easily pinned on President Obama than some suggest.

The Visa Waiver Program

The ‘Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act’ was part of a larger spending bill.

The act restricted the access to the Visa Waiver Program, which allows citizens from 38 countries to visit the US without a visa, so long as their visit is shorter than 90 days.

The UK is one such country among the 38 whose citizens are entitled to the waiver.

The 'improvement' and 'prevention' act

The act began in the Republican controlled House of Representatives, and was passed with the support of both Republicans and Democrats.

It was passed as part of a 2015 appropriations act that authorised spending in several areas.

Under the act, foreign visitors who had visited Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, or, Sudan since March 2011 or held dual citizenship from one of those countries were denied access to the waiver programme.

Persons who had visited Libya, Somalia, and Yemen in the preceding five years were added to the list in February 2016.

Dual citizens from these three countries were allowed continued access to the waiver program.

These seven nations are the 'countries of concern' named in the law, and are also those whose citizens are subjected to President Trump's executive action.

How this differs from President Trump's ban

While it could be argued that President Trump is simply extending an action take by his predecessor, the two policies are distinct.

The act signed by President Obama only affected people who had been eligible for the programme, and not all citizens from the list of seven.

They are two distinct actions, and the proportion of America's response to perceived threats is at the discretion of the president.

People are praising this Sikh’s bravery in JFK airport protest

Picture: CHRIS HOUSTON/TWITTER/SCREENGRAB

Donald Trump last week suspended refugee travel into America for at least 120 days, preventing people from Syria, Iraq, Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the country, through an executive order. 

The Syrian refugee program was suspended indefinitely. 

Shortly following the ban, the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC)’s director tweeted that people were already being turned away from flights, and those with visas were unable to return home.

Since then, the White House has pulled back on some parts of the ban on visitors from the seven countries, saying it will not apply to those with green cards granting them permanent residence in the Unites States.

On Sunday the Department of Homeland Security formally issued an order declaring legal residents exempt from the order.

The executive order prompted protests across the world: one in London, organised for 4 February is set to have over 10,000 attendees:

American demonstrators filled airports with signs that read ‘Stop The Ban’ and ‘Refugees Welcome Here’:

Picture: JOSHUA LOTT/GETTY

Following growing sentiment that the executive order constituted a 'Muslim Ban', and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's contrasting message of welcome to all refugees...

...on Sunday a terror attack on a Mosque in Quebec city left six people dead after gunmen opened fire.

Pigs’ heads have also been left outside of Islamic places of worship in the UK and the US.

An image of a Sikh man at a protest at John F Kennedy airport has been circulating the web: 

His poster recounts an incident in which he was attacked because he ‘looked’ Muslim.

People are commending his bravery:

And other prominent Sikh leaders have praised the young man for standing by their 'Muslim brothers and sisters':

Donald Trump vows to ban more Muslim countries including Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Turkey

Donald Trump’s administration on Sunday tempered a key element of his move to ban entry of refugees and people from seven Muslim-majority countries in the face of mounting criticism even from some prominent Republicans and protests that drew tens of thousands in major American cities.

The US president signed the directive on Friday, but the policy appeared to be evolving on the fly.Democrats and a growing number of Republicans assailed the move and foreign leaders condemned it amid court challenges and tumult at US airports.

The president’s critics have said his action violated US law and the US Constitution. In a fresh defense of the action on Sunday, Mr Trump said his directive was “not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting.”

“This is not about religion – this is about terror and keeping our country safe,” Mr Trump said.

“We are going to ban more Muslim majority countries which their citizens were involve in the September 11 attacks.” He added.

The mentioned countries include Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Azerbaijan.

John Kelly, the US homeland security secretary, said in a statement that people from the seven countries who hold so-called green cards as lawful permanent US residents would not be blocked from returning to the United States from overseas, as some had been following the directive.

In his statement, Mr Kelly said: “I hereby deem the entry of lawful permanent residents to be in the national interest.”

Outside the White House, where some viewing stands from Mr Trump’s January 20 inaugural parade still stood, several thousand protesters denounced him, carrying signs such as “Deport Trump” and “Fear is a terrible thing for a nation’s soul.” Protests also were staged in cities and airports in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Houston, Dallas and elsewhere.

The Republican president on Friday put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the country, an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria and a three-month bar on citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Border and customs officials struggled to put Mr Trump’s directive into practice. Confusion persisted over details of implementation, in particular for the people who hold green cards.

Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the US senate foreign relations committee and a Trump supporter, said the president’s order had been poorly implemented, particularly for green card holders.

“The administration should immediately make appropriate revisions, and it is my hope that following a thorough review and implementation of security enhancements that many of these programs will be improved and reinstated,” Mr Corker said.

Mr Trump defended his action claiming the ban was not about religion but rather about keeping the US safe.

“This is not about religion – this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order.”

He added: “We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days.”

The department on Saturday said Trump’s action did apply to people with green cards who were returning to the United States from the seven nations. A White House official said later on Saturday that green card holders who had left the United States and wanted to return would have to visit a U.S. embassy or consulate to undergo additional screening.

Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff,  went on the Sunday morning news programs to say those people would not be blocked.

“As far as green card holders moving forward, it doesn’t affect them,” Mr Priebus said on the NBC program “Meet the Press.”

Mr Priebus added that these green card holders would be subjected to “more questioning” by US customs and border patrol agents when they try to re-enter the United States “until a better program is put in place over the next several months.”

In an apparent indication that Mr Kelly’s instructions were being implemented, some green card holders arriving in the United States said they had no trouble clearing customs.

Mahdi Tajsarvi, an engineer who lives in Virginia, said he and his wife, Arezoo Hosseini, both Iranian citizens with US green cards, were asked a few routine questions by authorities at Dulles International Airport outside Washington on Sunday evening and let through within a few minutes.

Trump is going to meet the Queen. Here's what he thinks of the Royal Family

Donald Trump confirmed to British Prime Minister Theresa May yesterday during their joint press conference that he would be traveling to the UK on a state visit later this year.

But meeting anyone from the royal family might be a bit awkward for Trump, who’s had a few things to say about them in the past.

So before they prepare a bedroom in Buckingham palace, let's have a gander at what Trump thinks about the Royals.

He told the Guardian

I think I like Prince Harry. He's young and rebellious and I don't think people should hold that against him. I think the security didn't do a good job, frankly.

Ok, not bad. Off to a good start. 

How about Kate?

Oh...

Did he though? 

If you were wondering, yes he did give the Queen an iPod... But it was full of Broadway tunes and a songbook for The King and I.

So. Watch this space. We're sure there will be further tweets on the Royals in the coming months.

This bizarre tweet from Sean Spicer's personal Twitter is confusing everybody

Sean Spicer, press secretary to Donald Trump has been criticised for his Twitter activity of late.

Spicer posted two consecutive eight-word tweets of questionable motive.

Some speculated that he had unwittingly posted a pair of passwords by mistake:

People couldn't understand if it was an elaborate troll by the press secretary...

…or if he simply hadn’t got the hang of social media:

Yet more confusion comes with a tweet from his personal account

In a Tweet on Sunday, a post by his account tells The Onion they “nailed” a video about him:

Except…The Onion is a parody publication. He does know that…right?

For those in doubt here are some recent articles by the publication:

  •  Kitten Thinks of Nothing But Murder All Day
  • Trump Claims Waterboarding Doesn’t Come Close To The Excruciating Torment He Experiences At Every Moment
  • Trump Deploys National Guard To Press Conference For Standing Ovation
  • Man Excited To Spend Weekend Back Home Catching Up With Old Video Games From High School

You see why Spicer's tweet is causing confusion...

The video was titled '5 Things to know about Sean Spicer' and featured such classics as his speaking style (defensive) and this:

Picture: The Onion/screengrab

What does this all mean?

People on Twitter seemed sure of the answer:

 

And there were cries of fake news:

Maybe... Spicer was trying to be funny?

One thing remains certain however: a strong sign of competence is complimenting a parody news website for making fun of you, while haranguing other more serious parts of the media.

This cartoon of Trump and May has offended a lot of people

Picture: GETTY

Cartoonist and satirical genius Steve Bell has created a cartoon for the Guardian and it's caused a bit of a stir. 

Are you ready?

Here it is:

As with any satirical cartoon, it's caused a stir, and once again brought up the debate about the boundaries of what's funny, and what's offensive. 

People have differing opinions:

Bell’s cartoon was actually inspired by a cartoon by James Gillray in 1972.

But some are saying that doesn't excuse it: 

Others loved it: 

With many pointing out that it's satirical:

And simply getting people to talk about the state of affairs in modern day politics means it has achieved its purpose:

And brought a smile to one or two faces:

Calls to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. are offensive and unconstitutional.

See?

Here's a picture of Mr Pence stood next to his new boss; property tycoon, steak salesman and current President of the United States Donald Trump as he signs an executive order banning refugees from Syria indefinitely.

He also banned refugees from six other major Muslim countries for 120 days.

This Wikipedia page says Paul Ryan is spineless

"Invertebrates are animals that neither possess nor develop a vertebral column, derived from the notochord. This includes all animals apart from the subphylum Vertebrata." - Wikipedia 

Put simply, invertebrates have no spine. 

If you also checked Wikipedia in the past few days for additional hot invertebrate facts, you might have stumbled upon the page's latest edition.

Paul Ryan, the 54th and current speaker of the House of Representatives joined the ranks of the spineless.

First spotted by Buzzfeed's Alp Ozcelik the page has now been edited but you can check it out here.

He might have been added for stripping funding from Planned Parenthood, or possibly for his efforts to axe the Affordable Care Act before finding a suitable replacement for the many people who need it. 

We may never know.

We're just going to be waiting patiently to see whether any other prominent politicians pop up on any other animal pages.
