The actress was on stage with her co-stars and the filmmakers as they accepted the top gong of the evening, before it became apparent the wrong movie had been read out by its presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. The mix-up saw the musical's producers finishing off their acceptance speeches before La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz revealed the mistake, prompting a brief moment of panicked chaos on-stage.

By Carolyn Cohn LONDON (Reuters) - Britons will have to pay much more for motor insurance after the government announced new rules on Monday that will push up lump sum payments for personal injury claims. The industry's trade body described the change as "crazy" as it would lead insurers to further increase motor insurance premiums, which jumped 9 percent last year. The personal injury lawyers' trade group, however, said it was "long overdue".

Sir John, who was leader of the Conservative Party when the UK was negotiating the Maastricht Treaty with its European partners in 1991, said he was concerned the challenges ahead had been underplayed. The ex-PM told an audience at Chatham House in London that, while the British people had every right to choose to leave the EU, pro-Brexit supporters had left voters expecting an "unreal" and "over optimistic" future.

By Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump is seeking what he called a "historic" 9 percent increase in military spending, even as the United States has wound down major wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and remains the world's strongest military power. Trump will ask Congress to boost Pentagon spending in the next fiscal year by $54 billion in his first budget proposal and slash the same amount from non-defence spending, including a large reduction in foreign aid, a White House budget official said on Monday.

Despite essentially EVERYONE who took part in last year's edition of The Jump having horrific injuries, up to the point where it might as well have been called Last Jumper Standing, Channel 4's bizarrely addictive reality show is back. But alas, even before the show kicked off, there were a number of celebrity injuries and it's already getting hard to keep up with what's going on. So, here's your handy guide to the injury crisis in Austria, which we'll keep updating (probably on a daily basis). From Digital Spy
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, so guys and gals dating high profile ladies, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself! We all know T-Swift is iconic for turning her heartbreak into big bucks, but who is the new singing lady who might be following in her footsteps?? It’s Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards!! So we know her and Zayn were formerly engaged and then he broke things off with her and the world was sad for a bit, but then they both moved on and are seemingly in very happy and healthy relationships! Well, what’s startling about this news is that Perrie’s BF, Alex Chamberlain, is saying he better watch his back because he doesn’t want a song written about him! Last week Little Mix performed their new single, “Shout Out To My Ex,” at the Brit Awards and during their award acceptance speech, Jade says to the crowd, “And lastly, cheers to our exes for helpings do an amazing song. This is for you lads!!” After that very public thank you, Alex told The Sun “I better watch out! I don’t want her to become an ex and sing about me. Probably something about Arsenal being rubbish. I better look after her.” Boy you better watch out, because its 4 against 1 and everyone knows there are strength in numbers, so for all of our sakes and for your own, don’t screw this one up like Zayn did!! Rumors swirled around Perrie and Alex being a couple back in November, and they finally went Instagram official with a romantic trip to Paris where they were all over each other. Oh and we can’t forget to mention their bed-time Snapchats and all over cuteness! And she isn’t the only little mixer falling in love! Reportedly her bandmate Jesy Nelson is moving on from her broken engagement to Jack Roche with a fellow British actor, Chris Clark! Romance rumors fired up in the beginning of February after the two started following each other on Instagram and THEN Chris was at the BRIT awards with Jesy! He posted a picture of him with his arm around Jesy saying, “I don’t want this girl to go back to America tomorrow!” And you know what, Chris you better keep an eye on Jesy if you want her all to yourself, because she did say in an interview she would like to date an American guy, just saying’ you might want to seal the deal soon… KIDDING, that would be absurd if her proposed to her after less than a month of reportedly dating!! So what we’ve gathered is don’t piss off Little Mix because you will likely become the root of a chart topping song, and they have all the power in a relationship! Alex is hooked to Perrie and Chris is falling for Jesy, or so it seems! What do you guys think about Alex’s confession? Would you want to be the inspiration behind a little mix song? Let me know in the comments below!
New research shows that machine-learning algorithms can dramatically improve our predictive abilities on suicides. In a new survey in the February issue of Psychological Bulletin, researchers looked at 365 studies from the past 50 years that included 3,428 different measurements of risk factors, such as genes, mental illness and abuse. After a meta-analysis, or a synthesis of the results in these published studies, they found that no single risk factor had clinical significance in predicting suicidal ideation, attempts or completion.
Perhaps their most audacious trick is the “free-range” brand label that persuades many well-meaning shoppers to pay extra because they believe those eggs will come from a natural environment. Imagine thousands of birds crammed into a dirty shed, only existing so their eggs can be taken and sold for profit. The Viva report comes at a vulnerable time for the industry.
‘As Google gets more advanced there simply are fewer shortcuts... the benefits of SEO take time to come to fruition and won’t impact your site overnight’. If a week is a long time in politics, then a year is an eternity in the world of SEO. If your business operates anywhere near the web, then you will have heard of search engine optimisation – a catch-all phrase for a range of techniques designed to make certain pages appear higher up Google’s rankings.
No one is quite sure what is going to happen, or what the result means about our national identity, or if they can still trust their next door neighbour to look after their cat. For National Theatre boss Rufus Norris, one thing was clear: not only that the National needed to respond, but that they should do so by listening. When I visit the rehearsal room, there’s a game sense of adventure and uncertainty — it’s the first time the company have even read through the last page of the script, which only arrived the day before.
In a series of tests, hundreds of student volunteers in France and Israel were shown a photograph of a face and asked to select a corresponding name from a choice of four or five. Every time, participants were significantly better at matching the name to the face than would be expected by random chance. Dr Ruth Mayo, one of the researchers from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said: "These findings suggest that facial appearance represents social expectations of how a person with a particular name should look.

Honestly, is there anything better than women supporting women nowadays! I just LOVE these two. Let me know your thoughts in the comment section down below. And for more
Choosing a name for a child is often a headache for parents, but new research shows that picking well could be more crucial than previously thought. Just as Gray’s wicked deeds were etched onto the facial features of his portrait, so the cultural stereotypes linked to a name come to be written on the faces of their bearers. Likewise ‘Winstons’ are perceived as fairly glum, while ‘Marys’ are considered to be moral, both traits which may alter countenance, and over time, change face shape.

Costco is expected to raise its membership fees by nearly 10% in the next couple of months. The warehouse chain's fees will most likely increase by $5, to $60, for its basic membership and by $10, to $120, for its executive membership, according to UBS analyst Michael Lasser.
