Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, is there anyone who is not watching them battle it out in court live on TV? The defamation case happening right now in Virginia, US has grabbed the world’s attention as well as roping in some celebrities who have publicly given their opinions.

Six years ago I made a terrible, terrible mistake. I voted Leave. I thought Brexit would work, or at least could work and create the conditions to build a more competitive economy, and therefore a more prosperous one. I’d been watching the 2016 Euros and drew inspiration from them. Every team had
At one point in Al Gore’s seminal 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth,” the former vice president laments that his tobacco-farming parents didn’t stop raising tobacco until after their beloved daughter Nancy died of lung cancer in Tennessee. “It’s just human nature to take time to connect the dots,” Gore says
