The Phoenix Mercury center and two-time U.S. Olympic gold medalist also was ordered to remain in custody for the duration of her criminal trial, which was to begin Friday. Griner could face 10 years in prison if convicted on charges of large-scale transportation of drugs.
How girls think about their bodies is subjective, but their perception is heavily influenced by a variety of external factors—including their own parents. Bottom line: If you say these types of things enough in front of your daughters, you're demonstrating a negative relationship with your own body and aligning your self-worth with what you eat, Dr. Egger says. “Healthy food, physical activity and the joy of being a fully rounded person who is so much more than their appearance helps model a more neutral relationship with your body,” Dr. Egger maintains.
The Filipino American family who was threatened and physically attacked by a man at a McDonald's drive-thru in North Hollywood, California, last month will seek an extraction order on their assailant.

THIKA, Kenya (Reuters) - Watching workers poke avocados from the treetops in an orchard owned by Kenyan agriculture firm Kakuzi, managing director Chris Flowers revels in the thought some might soon go to the crown jewel of emerging consumer markets: China. Taking advantage of Beijing's deeper focus on trade with African countries to help reduce gaping deficits, Kenya struck an export deal with China for fresh avocados in January after years of lobbying for market access. Six months later, no shipments have left, Kenya's avocado society, the East African country's plant health inspectorate and Kakuzi told Reuters.
Although none have been found in the Puget Sound south of Admiralty Inlet, they recently were detected in Hood Canal and removed from the Seabeck area. European green crabs are easy to confuse with the native hairy helmet crab (Telmessus cheiragonus). Despite its name, the European green crab's most distinctive feature is not its color – which can vary from reddish to dark mottled green – but the five spines on either side of the shell near its eyes.
According to a Sunday tweet from Lauderhill Fire Rescue, first responders turned their attention away from fires and crashes to rescuing a small cat outside the Swap Shop near Fort Lauderdale around 1:30 p.m. The animal had reportedly become wedged near the engine compartment of a car that was parked outside the popular flea market. Fire-rescue spokesman Jerry Gonzalez told the Miami Herald on Monday that a concerned bystander heard “sounds” coming from the vehicle and called 911.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani doubled down Monday on his wildly overblown characterization that he was brutally assaulted by a Staten Island grocery store worker over the weekend, despite security footage showing the man only tapped his back. Speaking to about 200 people in a Facebook Live, Giuliani called the viral security footage “deceptive. He claimed the pat packed so much vigor it nearly knocked him and a friend to the ground, but he was able to stay upright because he's in such good shape for his age.
At least 21 teenagers, the youngest possibly just 13, died this weekend after a night out at a township tavern in South Africa in a tragedy where the cause remains unclear. Many are thought to have been students celebrating the end of their high-school exams on Saturday night, provincial officials said. There were no visible wounds on the bodies.
A Georgia man who was recently sentenced to death in the killings of two corrections officers during an escape attempt five years ago has died in prison of an apparent suicide, corrections officials said. Prison guards found Ricky Dubose unresponsive in his cell at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson around 4:45 p.m. Sunday, according to a Department of Corrections news release. Dubose, 29, was sentenced to death June 16 after he was convicted of murder in the June 2017 shooting deaths of Sgt. Christopher Monica and Sgt. Curtis Billue.
On Monday morning's episode of “The View” — the first since the Supreme Court's decision on Friday to overturn Roe v Wade — host Sunny Hostin admitted that she does not believe in any exceptions for abortions. While discussing the topic throughout the show, Hostin noted that while she doesn't agree with the court's decision, she also doesn't agree with abortion in general. Of course, long-time watchers of the show knew this already, as Hostin has always been open about being anti-abortion.
In his latest round of vetoes last week, DeSantis sounded the death knell for another priority of legislative leaders. It was also a win for taxpayers and local governments at risk of paying for expensive litigation. The legislation allowed some businesses to sue local governments to recover lost profits for up to seven years if the the loss was a result of a local ordinance or citizen initiative.
A political shift is beginning to take hold across the U.S. as tens of thousands of suburban swing voters who helped fuel the Democratic Party's gains in recent years are becoming Republicans. More than 1 million voters across 43 states have switched to the Republican Party over the last year, according to voter registration data analyzed by The Associated Press. The previously unreported number reflects a phenomenon that is playing out in virtually every region of the country — Democratic and Republican states along with cities and small towns — in the period since President Joe Biden replaced former President Donald Trump.
A female Republican congressional candidate claimed on the campaign trail in Virginia last month that rape victims are less likely to become pregnant because “it's not something that's happening organically.” Yesli Vega made the eyebrow-raising comments while being asked for her thoughts on what then promised to be a Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, ending the federal right to abortion. An audio recording of the remarks, which took place at an event in Stafford County, was published by Axios on Monday.
A 1959 photo shows Eugene Glick with his sons, Steve (left), Daniel (center) and Bob (on top of Eugene), who died in 2021. Before Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973, he treated women with perforated uteruses, septic shock, hemorrhages and other tragic consequences of illegal abortions and “back-alley” procedures, many of them performed by unsanitary, untrained hands. After Roe, providing abortions became a part of our father's practice.
This seems to be an unfortunate trend on TikTok: users posting videos claiming certain supplements or foods somehow “cancel out” birth control pills aka oral contraceptive pills (OCPs). This can be a really confusing question with potentially confusing answers. To be fair, the myth that certain things — from sunlight to antibiotics — can interact with birth control pills has been around for decades.
Clarence Thomas dismissed criticism that he isn't vocal enough during Supreme Court oral arguments. "If you look at the history of the Court, the Court was a very quiet Court," he said in a new book. Thomas, a pillar of the six-member conservative bloc, has served on the Supreme Court since 1991.
Atlanta police are investigating a shooting that has left one woman dead and another in critical condition at a metro Atlanta Subway store. Too much mayonnaise on a sandwich, police said.

Kari Lake, the Trump-endorsed candidate for Arizona governor, was far from happy on Monday when Fox News anchor Bret Baier asked her about a report that linked her to drag queens. The interview, which was fairly tame on Baier's end, began with Lake falsely claiming that the 2020 election was “fraudulent” and that President Joe Biden is “illegitimate.” Baier responded by playing a tape of Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers testifying before the House Jan. 6 committee last week that the election was not “rigged,” as she believed.
The House Jan. 6 panel is calling a surprise hearing this week to present evidence it says it recently obtained, raising expectations of new bombshells in the sweeping investigation into the Capitol insurrection. Lawmakers on the panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection said last week that there would be no more hearings until July. The committee's investigation has been ongoing during the hearings that started three weeks ago, and the nine-member panel has continued to probe the attack by supporters of then-President Donald Trump.
“More than half of mass shooters exhibited clear warning signs before committing their crimes, which makes such laws worthwhile.”
“It’s very difficult to determine if a person with no obvious criminal or mental illness history poses such a threat.”
“We will not end mass shootings, but smart public policy can reduce them.”
"A wider net is bound to ensnare many people who do not actually pose a threat.”
“They may also further dissuade gun owners from seeking mental health treatment if they fear their guns could be seized.”
