Ghislaine Maxwell has lost a desperate last-minute appeal to stop “embarrassing” confidential documents from being released. US District Judge Loretta Preska confirmed her ruling that the files must be unsealed and released to the public, despite Ms Maxwell’s lawyers' “extraordinary request” for her to reconsider. The British socialite, 58, had tried to argue that the government wrongfully used depositions filed in her civil lawsuit to bring criminal charges. She is currently answering a number of suits brought by victims of associate Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier found dead in his prison cell last year. Her lawyers charged on Wednesday that prosecutors in a separate criminal case used confidential depositions she made in 2016 in the civil case that is now being consideration by Judge Preska. The defamation suit was filed in 2015 by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who alleges she was abused by Epstein and pimped out to powerful figures including Prince Andrew, and confidentially settled in 2017. The Duke of York has denied all allegations.

Maybe you don't think you know many people with a genital piercing, but you might be surprised to learn how popular they are. Whether you're considering getting one yourself or you're just curious to know more about them, we spoke to Elayne Angel, professional body piercer and author of The Piercing Bible: The Definitive Guide to Safe Body Piercing, to find out everything there is to know about getting a vagina - technically called the vulva, since the vagina is all internal - piercing. What Are the Different Kinds of Genital Piercings? There are a number of different piercing placements for the vulva, but the most common piercing according to Angel is the vertical clitoral hood, or VCH, in the tissue above the clitoris. "It should be placed so that the jewelry rests beneath the hood, touching the clitoris, which can add sensation," Angel told POPSUGAR. "Most vulvas are suited to it, the area heals very quickly, and it looks really lovely, too." Another popular area is the triangle, which is a horizontal piercing that's placed beneath the clitoral shaft at the base of the hood. This is Angel's second-most-requested piercing, but since it's not a piercing that every vulva has the anatomy for, she frequently has to decline it. Additionally, there's the Princess Diana piercing, one that's similar to the VCH except it's slightly more asymmetrical; piercings on the inner and outer labia; the fourchette, a vertical piercing at the back edge of the vagina; and the Princess Albertina, which is a piercing in the urethra. Why Do People Get Genital Piercings? "When placed properly with the right jewelry on suited anatomy, piercings really can make a difference." Why anyone gets a vagina piercing depends on who you ask, as the motivation could be different for a lot of people. A common reason is that these piercings can increase sensitivity in the area and improve the sexual experience. "When placed properly with the right jewelry on suited anatomy, piercings really can make a difference," Angel said. "I've had clients who had primary anorgasmia (never had an orgasm before) who became orgasmic following piercing. That certainly validates my life's work right there." Of course, it's not always about sex. As Angel mentions in her book, some people also get them as a way to boost their self-esteem or make themselves feel good. "When an individual chooses to modify the appearance of their own genitals by piercing and adorning them with jewelry, it can be highly liberating," she writes. "For many it inspires harmony with their bodies that could not be achieved through any other means." Angel has also had couples request them as a way to add a spark to their relationships, while others have either gotten them simply for the aesthetic or as a confidence booster following breakups, abusive relationships, childbirth, and other life-changing occurrences.

I joined the Labour Party when I was 14 because I believed people in this country deserved better than to be blamed for economic failings. Living in Bradford I have seen the devastating impacts that a Tory government can have, like cutting £262 million from the council’s budget since 2010 due to government cuts to local authorities. This has seen vital public services reduced and as a result, poverty is rife. Bradford has the highest levels of child poverty in the UK, with 22 per cent of children living below the poverty line.Personally, I was heartbroken when the Labour Party lost the general election in 2019. I was so looking forward to all the incredible things that a Labour government would deliver, like ending the use of foodbanks and the investment in young people that we desperately needed. But I understand why we lost. Nearly every single door I knocked on in my hometown of Shipley in West Yorkshire, people just didn’t trust Jeremy Corbyn – whether it was his failure to tackle antisemitism or his mercurial position on Brexit.
Zimbabwe agreed on Wednesday to pay $3.5 billion (2.70 billion pounds) in compensation to white farmers whose land was expropriated by the government to resettle black families, moving a step closer to resolving one the most divisive policies of the Robert Mugabe era. Two decades ago Mugabe's government carried out at times violent evictions of 4,500 white farmers and redistributed the land to around 300,000 Black families, arguing it was redressing colonial land imbalances.
