Local paper reveals GOP senator’s ‘bussin’ secret Twitter account

A local newspaper revealed that Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah holds an alternative Twitter account called “BasedMikeLee”, which his office called his “personal account”. A source close to Mr Lee confirmed to The Salt Lake Tribune that he operates the Twitter account. The paper first took notice of the account after Mr Lee’s personal Facebook account linked to a thread from the @BasedMikeLee account regarding the FBI’s search of Mr Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. Mr Lee said that he had questions as a “former federal prosecutor, and current member of the Senate Judiciary Committee”. The account includes many snarky and snide comments, The Verge reported, such as him mocking Prince Harry’s address at the United Nations. When conservative social media personality Benny Johnson put out a call for Mr Lee to rack up 1,000 followers, Mr Lee sent out a Gen Z-inspired response: “This account is no cap — bussin, forreal forreal”. The account bears similarities to that of his fellow Utah Senator Mitt Romney, who ran an alternate account under the pseudonym Pierre Delecto, though Mr Lee apparently made no effort to conceal his identity. “I’m taller than @RandPaul,” one tweet reads, as a snide comment on his fellow conservative Republican Senator who hails from Kentucky. Mr Lee is up for reelection this year and is facing independent candidate Evan McMullin. He is also one of Mr Trump’s most prominent defenders in the United States Senate.

Olivia Wilde says ex Jason Sudeikis’ ‘aggressive’ actions were ‘meant to threaten’ her

In court documents, Olivia Wilde has claimed her ex Jason Sudeikis intentionally tried to “threaten” and “embarrass” her when she was unexpectedly handed custody papers on stage live at CinemaCon earlier this year. The former couple ended their relationship in November 2020, following a seven-year engagement. The couple share two children, Otis, seven, and Daisy, four. According to legal filings, recently obtained by The Daily Mail, Wilde and Sudeikis are currently in a legal dispute over Wilde’s intentions to relocate to London. She has been living there with boyfriend Harry Styles, who she’s been publicly dating since January 2021. Wilde and Sudeikis had originally continued to split custody of their children, alternating between one-week periods of “parental access” as they both divide their time between Los Angeles, New York, and London. However, following a disagreement about where their children would live permanently, Sudeikis chose to file for custody in April of this year. In a motion to dismiss the action, Wilde explained that they both had initially concurred to send their children to school in Los Angeles in the upcoming year because Sudeikis was nearing completion on the final season of his Apple TV+ comedy series Ted Lasso. “Recently, however, Jason decided that he wanted to go to New York for the next year while he is not working, and wanted the children to be with him there during this time off,” Wilde detailed in her filing. “When I did not agree, since the children have not lived in New York for several years, Jason filed these papers,” she added, referring to the “embarrassing” Las Vegas moment. At the time, Wilde was presenting her forthcoming Styles-led thriller Don’t Worry Darling – expected to release on 23 September – to a crowd of film industry executives, when a court process server handed her custody papers. “Jason’s actions were clearly intended to threaten me and catch me off guard. He could have served me discreetly, but instead he chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible,” Wilde wrote. “The fact that Jason would embarrass me professionally and put our personal conflict on public display in this manner is extremely contrary to our children’s best interests.” She added: “Since Jason has made it clear that we will not be able to work this out for our children’s sake outside of the court system, I filed a petition for custody in Los Angeles.” In Sudeikis’ declaration to the court, he said that after wrapping on the Emmy-winning show in July, he intended to return to Brooklyn. He further said he had hoped Wilde and their children would also return so that they could continue with their prior co-parenting arrangement. Sudeikis now said he believes those plans are “unlikely to occur” since Wilde “insisted upon” living in LA with the children, in addition to disclosing future plans of moving to London. He said at first he was “reluctant” to serve Wilde because he continues “to care deeply for her”. However, he claims he was spooked by her sentiments. “First, Olivia said that if I did not reside full-time in Los Angeles, she would allow me to spend time with Otis and Daisy on weekends and during vacation periods – thus depriving me of my right to parent the children during important periods of their lives,” Sudeikis said. “Second, Olivia said that she intended to relocate with the children to London following the close of school in 2023.” Responding to the CinemaCon incident, he said he was “deeply upset” by the events and feels “great distress at the manner in which service was made”. “I did not want service to take place at the home of Olivia’s current partner because Otis and Daisy might be present. I did not want service to take place at the children’s school because parents might be present,” he added. He went on to explain that due to multiple logistical mishaps, the server was unable to serve Wilde at the intended location of Heathrow Airport. In a second failed attempt to serve her at the Las Vegas hotel where the event was located, the server then “noticed Olivia at the Warner Brothers Panel and proceeded to serve the Summons and Petition upon Olivia”. “I understand that the process server had only done her job; however, I deeply regret what happened. Olivia’s talk was an important event for Olivia, both professionally and personally, and I am very, very sorry that the incident marred her special moment,” Sudeikis said.

A SURPRISING Solar Storm brings this rare event to Earth

India, Aug. 10 -- Just a few days ago, a potentially disruptive sunspot had transmitted surprising strong solar winds towards Earth at a striking speed of 372 miles a second! According to space experts, this resulted in sparking a moderately strong G2-class geomagnetic storm on the Earth. A geomagnetic storm, a major disturbance of Earth's magnetosphere, occurs when there is a remarkably efficient exchange of energy from the solar wind in the direction of Earth.According to the NOAA Space Weather Scale, a severe geomagnetic storm can even cause radio blackouts on Earth while impacting communication and electric grids. This G2-class geomagnetic storm did not cause any damage to infrastructure, it did result in dazzling colourful auroras all across Canada and the UK. The Space Weather Physicist Dr. Tamitha Skov also re-shared several snaps of the mesmerizing aurora views taken by residents.?And nothing like an August night, drenched in your loving... Lady aurora made a G1 appearance in the skies over central Alberta this morning,? a Twitterati Jeff Adams said while sharing aurora view. While, in a similar event, a user named Alan Dyer shared one of the rare events of the aurora, named "STEVE", short for Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement. The SpaceWeather.com report also confirmed that STEVE was visible in Montana and Pennsylvania during the last geomagnetic storm.?During Monday's surprise geomagnetic storm, hot ribbons of plasma flowed through Earth's magnetosphere. Alan Dyer saw one of them near Gleichen, Alberta,? SpaceWeather.com mentioned.?Over the past few nights, Alberta has seen active Aurora Displays. This photo shows STEVE, A unique Aurora Phenomenon mostly seen around lower attitudes and discovered right here in Alberta! Taken Sunday night around 1:00 am MST,? Dyer tweeted.This rare event is a recent discovery, which looks like an aurora, but it is not! According to spaceweather.com, the purple glow is caused by a hot temperature of 3000' Celsius. Ribbons of gas flowing through the magnetosphere of Earth at a lightning speed exceeding 6 km/s! It only appears during a few geomagnetic storms, usually alongside a type of green aurora called the picket fence.For any query with respect to this article or any other content requirement, please contact Editor at contentservices@htlive.com HT Digital streams Ltd

How To Keep Your Makeup From Melting This Summer, According To R29 Unbothered Editors

When temperatures rise, you likely tweak your beauty routine in some fashion, whether that means opting for a no-makeup makeup or more playful aesthetic, reaching for multipurpose products that feel skin care-y, or simply forgoing makeup (or at least heavy foundation) entirely. While these seasonal adjustments might come out of a natural desire to shed the heaviness of cooler months, sometimes these changes are born out of past experiences (like learning that waterproof mascara and blotting papers are key to preventing that “drowning in my own sweat” look).
