When Able Friend ambled into the Sha Tin parade ring for his farewell ceremony on Sunday, you could have heard a pin drop. Now, we wish the relative calm was because those who had packed into the modern day coliseum that constitutes Sha Tins parade ring were on the edge of their seats, transfixed at the sight of their former racetrack hero as he walked in front of them for the final time. Alas, no, there was silence because, to be brutally honest, those rusted-on regulars don...

Housing communities have various stipulations owner's must adhere to. On a recent trip, I asked a friend why every single house was the same color. The rules, they said, were to ensure no one painted their house a bright, or unsightly color. Cars are not allowed on the streets, nor in the driveway, but must be parked in the garages overnight. Lawns must maintain a similar aesthetic from house to house. The list surely goes on. I felt like I was seeing black and white. The lack of differentiation disturbed me. I am the type of person who, when I travel, the first thing that enchants me are colors. Brightly-colored murals painted on the side of buildings throughout a city make me happy art is being reimagined from the controversial graffiti to the now well-respected colors swallowing brick and cinderblock. A place can look run-down, or it can look gentrified, but they both hold stigmas.

Tired of people misunderstanding OCD, the UK model and writer decided to share her secret inner world. Here she answers 10 questions about the fourth most common mental illness 1. Your extremely compelling book, Because We Are Bad, details your life with obsessive compulsive disorder. You are 23 now and your book gives the impression it has always been with you. But was there any starting point as such, and if so, what was it? I dont remember ever not living with OCD. From as early as I can remember, there were two of me in my head, and my brain was filled with weird, uncomfortable thoughts. I heard my OCD as a voice – “she” or “my friend”. There was never an “I” in my head. It was always, “We should do this,” or, “We think that … ” It’s unusual to experience OCD like this, but not completely unheard of. Continue reading...

But the path to peace begins right here, on this ancient soil, in this sacred land. Trump announced that the U.S. would act as a friend of Saudi Arabia's, noting, America is prepared to stand with you—in pursuit of shared interests and common security. Here's where the speech truly gets interesting. Up until this point, Trump has simply said some kind words on peace and a hopeful tomorrow, but now he proceeds to discuss how this newfound peace will come into fruition. Our partnerships will advance security through stability, not through radical disruption. We will make decisions based on real-world outcomes – not inflexible ideology. We will be guided by the lessons of experience, not the confines of rigid thinking. And, wherever possible, we will seek gradual reforms – not sudden intervention. Keep in mind that this is a very different stance than the U.

Earlier this week, 18 women dressed up in red cloaks and white bonnets, stood in pairs in the rotunda of the Texas state capitol, and began chanting, "Shame!" in unison. They didn't stop shouting for eight minutes. They call themselves the Texas handmaids. You probably first saw them back in March, when images of their original protest in Austin went viral . That's when they sat silently in the Texas senate gallery, watching as lawmakers debated bills that would make it harder for women to get an abortion. SEE ALSO: Ivanka Trump is not your friend and she's not coming to save you What you may not know is that their demonstrations, inspired by Margaret Atwood's classic dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale and Hulu's vivid TV adaptation, are slowly spreading across the country.

During the presidential transition, when a friend called me to discuss whether he should accept a national security post in the Trump administration, I advised him to do so. My thinking was that the more mature, thoughtful people we had in the administration, the better. But over the last two weeks, I have come to think I was wrong. I no longer believe in the “adults in the room” theory of containing President Trump and the similarly erratic and ignorant people around him. The prime reason I have come to believe I was wrong was the experience of watching Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, Trump’s second national security adviser, make a series of statements. On the evening of Monday, May 15, he appeared before cameras at the White House to respond to a Washington Post article reporting that the president had shared sensitive intelligence about terrorism with Russian visitors.

I keep going but I walk very carefully following in the paths of others. When I get to our neighbourhood and see the devastation I feel a renewed sense of shock. So much is gone. I am with a friend and three houses next to his were levelled. Others are beyond repair. Most of the private cars owned here have been crushed by military bulldozersDaesh had forced locals to put their cars in the middle of the street in order to block the Iraqi army’s advance. My neighbourhood is like a patient who has just come out of surgery for the removal of a malignant tumour and is still hallucinating from the drugs they were given. Everything is sad. Everything makes me feel like crying. Also around us as we walk, are the corpses of the extremist fighters. Nobody seems to care about them though. Pedestrians just block their noses as they go by. Sometimes I see them curse these dead men: “They deceived you and promised you heaven and virgins but now you’re just lying here, dead, and soon you will be thrown into the garbage.

"It's only a hour from Bali but it is another world," Surya said. Its dry rolling hills look more like Texas than the lush landscape of most Indonesian islands. Strong women Many of its inhabitants are animists and as in some other islands in the Muslim-majority country families live with the mummified corpses of the dead for years, often serving them meals as if they were still alive. People know Indonesia as the world's most populous Muslim nation, said Surya, "but is also incredibly diverse". And even on Sumba, where the society is strongly patriarchal, there are plenty of strong women much like the film's heroine, she insisted. "One woman, who is a queen of a village I draw strongly on (for some of the characters), and another character is actually based on my aunt," who also comes from the countryside, Surya said. Indonesian star Marsha Timothy plays the widow while young singer Panendra Larasati, who made her name on the Indonesian Idol television show, is a revelation in her screen debut as her "10-month pregnant" friend.
