L. isn’t the biggest fan of online dating. A burlesque performer who hosts cocktail events, the 31-year-old Orlando resident had some negative experiences when she tried it several years ago and stuck to making connections in person. “I assumed I would meet someone through my events,” said L. (Like several people who were interviewed for this story, she asked not to use her full name.)Then March rolled around and all of L.’s planned social engagements dried up. Looking to make a new connection, L. jumped onto dating app Hinge. And like many other singles have been saying about the world of int...

'You can't defend me for the same things you are doing': Katie Hill unleashes on Matt Gaetz in new CNN interview
Former Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) struck up an unlikely friendship with Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) when she was in Congress. Gaetz was supportive of Hill when she was shoved out of Congress when her ex-husband posted revenge porn to destroy her life and her career.
Now that Gaetz is being accused of showing nude photos of women or girls he'd slept with on the House floor, Hill is speaking out.
Far-right wing extremists have moved on from "Stop the Steal" to "Stop the Vaccine" as a few took the streets this weekend to protest in the name of "White Lives Matter." Why the vaccine is bad appears to vary from person to person.
As one Huntington Beach, California man explained, the vaccine is made of baby parts. It's unclear how he came to that conclusion, but it's remarkably similar to conspiracy theories from the 1990s that said beverages were made from dead babies. Snapple, Pepsi and others were part of the bizarre conspiracy. It harkens back to the 1973 film "Soylent Green," which predicts that by 2022 America will enter an ecological dystopia in which overpopulation leads humans to create a tasty beverage that converts corpses into Soylent Green.
Ex-Trump attorney facing lawsuit apologizes for saying fired administration official should be 'taken out at dawn and shot'
According to a report from Axios, attorney Joeseph diGenova has issued a written apology to former Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency director Chris Krebs for stating on Newsmax that the dismissed Trump administration official should be executed.
In December, Krebs filed a lawsuit against diGenova, Newsmax and the Trump campaign for defamation, emotional distress and conspiracy after the attorney attacked him by saying, that Krebs "should be drawn and quartered" and "taken out at dawn and shot," following Krebs interview on "60 Minutes" where he disputed Trump's assertion that there was election fraud that led to Trump's failure to be re-elected.
