Top Reasons to Start Playing the Harmonica

Trying to play the accordion can be a bit physically demanding. You need to use your fingers and hands to operate this instrument and apply varying amounts of pressure while moving through the song.

If you also like to play sports, this improved strength of your hands and fingers can give you a better grip on the ball as well as an …

The right lip makeup

Lip pencils are handy allies for plumping up your lips. Simply outline your lips with a pencil in the same color as your lipstick, accentuating the contours in a light, natural way by no more than three to four millimetres. It’s a simple trick but very effective.

Start with the lower lip before moving on to the upper lip. Pay close attention to symmetry and follow the cupid’s bow closely! Then, lightly blur the contours to ensure that the line looks natural and then move on to fill in the inside of the line with lipstick. If you want to …

New York City will scale back the Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration as the Omicron variant spreads, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Thursday, the same day New York state reported its highest recorded daily coronavirus case total ever.

The mayor added that officials were still monitoring the situation and could take additional precautions in the coming days, if …

Cecilia McDowall to Debut New Christmas Carol

LONDON — Every Christmas Eve, the British composer Cecilia McDowall follows the same routine.

At 3 p.m., as family members arrive at her London home, she goes into the kitchen, turns on the radio and starts making a Christmas pudding — a slow-cooked, booze-soaked British dessert — while listening to the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, perform its Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.

That service of Bible readings and Christmas music is one of Britain’s best known festive traditions, broadcast live on radio stations worldwide, including on around 450 in the United States. A spokesman for the choir estimated

U.S. Effort to Combat Forced Labor Targets Corporate China Ties

A far-reaching bill aimed at barring products made with forced labor in China became law after President Biden signed the bill on Thursday.

But the next four months — during which the Biden administration will convene hearings to investigate how pervasive forced labor is and what to do about it — will be crucial in determining how far the legislation goes in altering the behavior of companies that source products from China.

While it is against U.S. law to knowingly import goods made with slave labor, the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act shifts the burden of proof to companies from

Covid’s Risk to Older Adults

The risks here for older people are frightening: A rate of 0.45 percent, for instance, translates into roughly a 1 in 220 chance of death for a vaccinated 75-year-old woman who contracts Covid. If the risks remain near these levels with Omicron, they could lead to tens of thousands of U.S. deaths, and many more hospitalizations.

Encouragingly, there are reasons to believe that Omicron’s death rate may be lower. Three new studies released yesterday suggested that Omicron causes milder illness on average than earlier versions of the virus. “I would guess that the mortality risk with Omicron is much smaller” …

India’s Christians Attacked Under Anti-Conversion Laws

Muttur Devi, a lower caste woman who works on a farm in the impoverished state of Bihar, adopted Christianity two years ago. Still, each morning, she affixes a bindi, a small circular sticker, to her forehead, and paints a vermilion stripe on her scalp. These are visible Hindu marks that she says help disguise her departure from Hinduism.

“If I take this off,” she said, touching her bindi, “the whole village will harass me.”

One cold night this past winter, Pastor Patil drove to a secret prayer session in an unmarked farmhouse. He quickly stepped inside. On a dusty carpet …

Bros’ Restaurant in Italy: Chef Finds Fame After Epic Takedown

“They had a good time making fun of us,” said Mr. Pellegrino, adding that if the party had acted the same in a local trattoria, “they would have gotten a kick” in the behind.

Informed of the accusation of rudeness, Ms. DeRuiter was appalled. “The attempts by the chefs of Bros’ to blame their clientele for the quality of the service received,” she wrote in an email, “is the antithesis of what makes a good restaurant.”

Misunderstood masterpiece or lousy meal, a richly deserved excoriation or hatchet job, what is clear is that Mr. Pellegrino had unexpectedly emerged as the …
