KYIV (Reuters) -Ukraine sowed confusion on Monday about whether its defence minister would be replaced, creating doubts about the leadership of its war effort just as it braces for an expected Russian offensive.

So, performing with someone else's skull has brought (Mangushev) misfortune,” Kazanskyi wrote.
ISTANBUL (Reuters) -Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said Western missions would "pay" for issuing security warnings and temporarily closing consulates in Turkey last week, while police said there was no serious threat to foreigners after detaining 15 Islamic State suspects on Sunday.

Turkish officials said the following day that Western nations, including the United States and Germany, had not shared information to back up their claims of a security threat.
With C8 Corvette Z06 deliveries well underway, customers are finally starting to enjoy their cars to the fullest. One customer, steelankles on YouTube, didn't get much time to enjoy his Amplify orange Z06 coupe before the engine failed, leaving him stranded with just 621 miles on the odometer. Video from a rear-facing GoPro mounted to the back of the Z06 published to the steelankles account shows the car doing an acceleration before it begins to exhibit some pretty severe rod knock.
Whether you dread it or welcome it, daylight saving time is fast approaching this year. More specifically, daylight saving will begin at 2 a.m., meaning that at that time, the time will either automatically jump over to 3 a.m. – depending on the device – or you'll need to set it forward. As a result of the time change, sunset will be an hour later on March 12 than it was on March 11.

La Perla is located in the historic part of Puerto Rico's capital known as Old San Juan and became famous after it was featured in the video of “Despacito,” a song released in 2017 by Puerto Rican singers Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.

Here is what scientists said happened beneath the earth's surface and what to expect in the aftermath: WHERE DID THE EARTHQUAKE ORIGINATE? The epicentre was about 26 km east of the Turkish city of Nurdagi at a depth of about 18 km on the East Anatolian Fault.

Elon Musk is a marketing whiz. Until recently, Tesla , for example, did not advertise in the media, which allows the Austin, Texas-based vehicle maker to make significant savings as rivals General Motors , Ford spend millions of dollars to extol the merits of their vehicles. The company can afford this zero-ads strategy because it has Musk and his millions of followers.
Pervez Musharraf, the four-star general who ruled Pakistan for nearly a decade after seizing power in a bloodless coup in 1999, oversaw rapid economic growth and attempted to usher in socially liberal values in the conservative Muslim country. Musharraf, 79, died in hospital after a long illness after spending years in self-imposed exile, Pakistan media reported on Sunday. But his heavy-handed use of the military to quell dissent as well as his continued backing of the United States in its fight against al Qaeda and the Afghan Taliban ultimately led to his downfall.
When the ancient Egyptian pyramids were originally erected, both in Giza and elsewhere, they didn't look sandy brown as they often do today; rather, they were covered in a layer of shiny sedimentary rock. "All the pyramids were cased with fine, white limestone," Mohamed Megahed, an assistant professor at the Czech Institute of Egyptology at Charles University in Prague, told Live Science. The limestone casing would have given the pyramids a smooth, polished layer that shined bright white under the Egyptian sun.

Camille Vasquez rose to prominence in 2022 as Johnny Depp's lawyer during his defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard, though she's not just working in the courtroom these days. Vasquez, who some might say was the real winner of that case, has parlayed her notoriety into a gig on NBC News. She made her debut as a legal analyst for the network a few weeks ago, during which she discussed the murders at the University of Idaho.
All that should mean some relief for the housing markets in popular rural communities where home prices ballooned over the past two years from a burst of out-of-town buyers, pricing local workers out of the market. But residents and officials in the affected communities say that while the ranks of remote workers have ebbed, they have seen no relief from the massive housing shortages they spurred. In the 500-person town of Springdale, Utah, near Zion National Park, residents and officials have been increasingly struggling to find even basic housing to support the local workforce, leaving businesses and the national park chronically understaffed with few signs of the situation improving, said ...
Consumer Reports polls its members on all sorts of topics related to how they buy and use products ranging from mobile phones to humidifiers for indoor plants. Cars are regularly one of CR's most interesting topics, and its recent study on the least satisfying vehicles to own offers insights into the cars people wish they hadn't purchased.

That's actually more true in the grocery space than other consumer goods because multiple players have decided to largely use groceries as a loss leader. Walmart , Costco , and Amazon have a national footprint and they don't need to make a high margin (or any margin) selling groceries. Both chains can use food as a loss leader to help them capture customers for their other businesses.
An Oakland, California, community is in shock after repeatedly seeing groups of suspected prostitutes and human trafficking victims reportedly soliciting outside a Catholic grade school. "I get the call saying – 'Mr. Gallo, I can't get into my home because the pimp is blocking my driveway,'" Oakland City Councilman Noel Gallo told ABC 7 of the weekly calls he receives from residents in East Oakland. The Oakland Police Department is beefing up patrols outside St. Anthony's K-8 Catholic school after parents and school leaders sounded the alarm on the young, scantily-clad women and girls they see walking near East 15th Street in Oakland.
A federal law prohibiting marijuana users from possessing firearms is unconstitutional, a federal judge in Oklahoma has concluded, citing last year's U.S. Supreme Court ruling that significantly expanded gun rights. U.S. District Judge Patrick Wyrick, an appointee of former Republican President Donald Trump in Oklahoma City, on Friday dismissed an indictment against a man charged in August with violating that ban, saying it infringed his right to bear arms under the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment. Wyrick said that while the government can protect the public from dangerous people possessing guns, it could not argue Jared Harrison's "mere status as a user of marijuana justifies stripping him of his fundamental right to possess a firearm."
Parts of the West and Rockies will likely see snow while possibly severe thunderstorms will begin to form Monday in Texas, days after the state was hit by a brutal ice storm that froze roads and caused the deaths of at least seven people. Now the East expects to see temperatures above average for early February, and some regions will see temperatures 20 to 30 degrees above average, according to the National Weather Service. "For the majority nation, we're looking at at least seasonable or even warmer than average conditions," AccuWeather meteorologist Alan Reppert told USA TODAY.

Early in the week, the internet was ablaze over an image captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter that bears a striking resemblance to a bear. The image, which was originally captured in December, shows a patch of the Martian landscape, outlined by what NASA calls a “circular fracture pattern,” with two craters for eyes and what appears to be a volcanic formation for a nose and mouth. Now, some have been quick to attribute this to a phenomenon known as “pareidolia,” the tendency for humans to derive meaningful images from random patterns.
“Streaming is beginning to look an awful lot like the old-fashioned analogue TV it was supposed to replace.”
“Streaming isn’t going away … You’re still going to have a lot of choice for a long time.”
“In the future, [streaming] likely will cost more, have a little less library content and cancel more shows more quickly.”
“Streaming is still a game of content … It’s not a matter of who’s spending more, it’s who’s spending smartly.”
“Streamers are retreating from any sort of creative risk in favor of humdrum, lowest-common-denominator shows.”
