KYIV (Reuters) -Ukraine sent mixed messages about the fate of its defence minister on Monday, leaving a key post in its war effort in doubt even as it braces for a new Russian offensive. The questions left dangling over Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov were the first public sign of serious disarray in Ukraine's wartime leadership, until now remarkably united during almost a year of all-out Russian military assault. A day after announcing that Reznikov would be sidelined, a top ally of President Volodymyr Zelenskiy appeared to row back for now, saying no personnel changes in the defence sector would be made this week.

So, performing with someone else's skull has brought (Mangushev) misfortune,” Kazanskyi wrote.
California wildlife officials have called off the search for a mountain lion that attacked a 5-year-old boy who was on a hiking trail in rural Northern California, saying there was little chance of capturing the animal. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife said Friday that DNA testing confirmed that a mountain lion was responsible for the attack last Tuesday in San Mateo County, south of San Francisco. “This lack of access, combined with worsening weather and the nomadic nature of mountain lions has diminished the chances for a successful capture," said Capt. Patrick Foy, a department spokesman.

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.

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.

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.

Joining social media buzz over the Chinese spy balloon that was shot down in U.S. airspace Saturday, Donald Trump's son on Sunday shared a joke about the incident, showing the former president's infamous portrayal as a giant, angry, diaper-wearing baby wielding a smartphone in its tiny hand. “Not gonna lie... this is funny,” Trump Jr. tweeted.
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 ...
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.

"I know that the last I had heard weeks ago is that Bryan is being kept isolated from other inmates, and so I know that we do both likely sleep alone as I mentioned in a past post," Hislope wrote in her most recent post, which was dated shortly after midnight Friday.

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.

“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.”
