Thai Soccer Team Thought They’d Have to Ride Their Bikes Home After Digging Tunnel from Cave

The 12 members of the Wild Boars youth soccer team and their coach never stopped thinking of ways to free themselves from the flooded Tham Luang Nang Non cave in northern Thailand during the weeks-long ordeal that captured global attention.

In a Wednesday press conference, the boys — ranging in age from 11 to 16 — revealed that they licked water from the cave’s walls to survive and took turns using rocks to try to dig a tunnel. They had a plan in place. But, little did they know, a slew of rescue teams and ambulances were waiting for them outside.

“We were thinking… we would have to ride our bicycles home,” team’s coach, Ekapol “Aek” Chanthawong said, according to Todaynoting that the group decided that the boys who lived the furthest away would leave through their handmade tunnel first.

The group went into the cave on June 23 for an hour-long excursion, but became stuck when heavy rains and rising floodwaters blocked their exit. Police said they believe the team crawled into the cave through a narrow 15-meter long channel. Officials launched a massive search for the group after a park officer found the boys’ backpacks, bicycles and soccer cleats abandoned outside the cave, CNN reported.

The team was initially found on July 2, and authorities grappled with how to safely free them from the cave. By July 10, the players and their coach had been successfully rescued and taken to a local hospital where they received vaccinations. In footage from the Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital, the boys appeared to be in good spirits as they sat up in their hospital beds with masks over their faces.

In the wake of the rescue, the boys have been open about their ordeal, detailing the weeks they spent in the dark, wet cave. One boy — who turned 13 in the cave — said the hungry group couldn’t help but talk about food as they struggled to survive.

“The more we talked about it, the hungrier we got,” the teen said, according to Today. “I’m so happy to be at home and sleep in my own bed.”

According to ABC News, Chanthawong said at Wednesday’s press conference that the group made the decision to go deeper into the cave after they found their exit flooded. Still, they never expected to be inside for so long.

“The water went up to my shoulder. So everyone followed me,” he said. “I didn’t worry at that time because I thought the water would lower down overnight and we could get out.”

As the hours passed, the boys became worried. But Chanthawong said he assured them that they weren’t lost. They had no food or water when they entered the cave and, when they weren’t digging through the cave’s walls, they would sit still to save their energy.

“I felt weak and very hungry,” 11-year-old Chanin Vibulrungruang — the youngest of the group, said — according to ABC. “I drank water to make me full.”

Now, as the boys and their coach recover from the incident, they all agree on one thing: they’ll never go into the cave again.

“If someone invites me, I would say no,” Chanthawong said. “I would only join them from in front of the cave as a guide to other people.”

Kaley Cuoco Marries Karl Cook in Romantic Ceremony — See Their Wedding Photos!

Kaley Cuoco is married!

The Big Bang Theory star tied the knot with professional equestrian Karl Cook at an intimate wedding at a horse stable near San Diego, California, attended by close friends and family on Saturday, PEOPLE confirms.

“Legally KCSQUARED 6-30-18 ❤,” Cuoco — who wore a white lace dress with a cape — captioned an Instagram showing her kissing Cook near horse stalls.

“Ok let’s party!!! #kcsquared 💋 💕,” the actress captioned a second snap of the newlyweds gearing up for the reception.

Cuoco, 32, and Cook, 27, delivered their own wedding vows, which had the bride both laughing and wiping tears from her cheeks, as a guest showed in an Instagram video.

One guest shared the moment Cook and Cuoco were married by a friend.

“I love you both so much,” the pal said before joking about how she took an online course to officiate the wedding, making Cuoco kneel over laughing.

Once pronounced husband and wife, the crowd cheered as the couple leaned in for their first kiss as newlyweds.

Another special video features the pair preparing for their first dance at the reception.

Cuoco and Cook got engaged on her birthday in November 2017 after dating for nearly two years.

Just hours before sharing the proposal on social media, Cook teased Cuoco with a fake ring while shopping at Target.

“On my loves birthday I got her everything she has always wanted….now judging by her face maybe not, it’s the thought that counts right,” he shared.

Then, Cook — the son of software billionaire Scott Cook — treated her to a romantic candlelit dinner and popped the question for real for a stunning tear-drop diamond, documenting her tearful reaction on Instagram.

She celebrated her bachelorette party in June.

“He is my perfect match,” Cuoco gushed to PEOPLE in March, adding that she hoped to make their pets part of their wedding. “He lets me wake up in the morning and say, ‘I want to go and rescue rabbits.’ And he’s like, ‘All right, let’s get a coffee and let’s go.’ And that is him. We are the same, our views are the same, our morals are the same, he is my perfect match.”

The duo started dating in spring 2016 and made their first public appearance as a couple in September that same year. (This is the actress’s second marriage; she filed for divorce from former tennis player Ryan Sweeting in September 2015.)

“From the beginning, Kaley was crazy about Karl,” an insider previously told PEOPLE. “They have so much in common and he makes her so happy. She went through such a tough time with her divorce from Ryan, but she never gave up on finding love again. She’s really a romantic!”

Volvo Says Americans Are Shifting Their Luxury Thinking

Are American consumers shifting their thinking of what luxury means?
Volvo Car USA thinks so. Volvo, which is repositioning the brand into the luxury space, partnered with The Harris Poll to get some insight on American attitudes on different themes, such as design, safety, technology and environment. The latest study on luxury indicates that Americans are rethinking their attitudes toward their possessions, looking to streamline and declutter their lives. The poll was conducted from April 26 to May 1, surveying more than 2,014 U.S. adults over the age of 18.
According to the study, 82 percent of Americans agree that people have too much stuff, while a slightly higher percentage at 85 percent said they are actively working to declutter and simplify their spaces. That includes 49 percent looking to declutter their bedrooms, while 34 percent are looking to streamline their wardrobes. Millennials in particular at 60 percent said they have more stuff than they did 10 years ago.
The study also found that respondents are saying they are shifting away from quantity, with 68 percent agreeing that “when it comes to modern luxury, less is more.” The latter has impacted purchase volumes and frequency in connection with how they spend for “modern

GMA’s Ginger Zee and Frozen’s Patti Murin Have a No-Judgement Chat About Their Mental Health Struggles

Two of Hollywood’s outspoken and passionate advocates about mental health are coming together to talk about their experiences and how they work to remove the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

PEOPLE has the exclusive premiere of a candid conversation between Good Morning America’s meteorologist Ginger Zee and Broadway’s Frozen star Patti Murin — staged in support of Philosophy’s hope & grace initiative, which donates a portion of all of the beauty brand’s proceeds go to women’s mental health organizations.

Back in December, Zee, 37, opened up about her battle with depression in her book Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I Am One — revealing that she checked herself into a mental health institution just 10 days before starting her job at ABC News.

Murin, 37, has also long been transparent about her depression and anxiety, making headlines back in April when she revealed she had to call out of a Frozen performance due to a “massive anxiety attack.”

Both stars have been able to connect with millions of fans who are tackling similar mental health hurdles.

“Social media, it’s the best way to get the word out,” Murin says. “I feel like some sort of barrier was broken. I don’t know exactly when or how, but all of the big stars that people see on their favorite TV shows or movies are coming out and talking about it — like Kristen Bell and Mark Ruffalo. Look at what these people are doing, but also know that they feel like you.”

“That’s the point! It’s that it doesn’t discriminate,” adds Zee. “It’s not just for us that are on a more public scene. It’s the high schooler or the middle schooler …  That’s part of our job as humans: to sit down and to have a conversation and learn about somebody’s story. That’s going to make everybody’s mental health better.”

Zee says one of her struggles is feeling like she is “multiple people at one time.”

“That is a big hallmark of many people’s mental health challenges. For me, there was Ginger Zee, who was on television, and there was Ginger Zuidgeest, which is my really long Dutch name. And those people were very different people. It almost makes it easier because you’re able to for longer, hide from it.”

“I have the opportunity to step into somebody else’s shoes and I think that hindered some of my progress in my early acting years, before I went on medication and did research and realized this was a bigger thing I could not do on my own and handle myself,” Murin admits.

RELATED VIDEO: Ginger Zee on Battling Depression: ‘I Don’t Think Anybody’s Forever Cured’

And while both Zee and Murin have made major strides in their mental health, each admits to still be learning every day — and even from each other.

“The number of people that sent me your story because they wanted me to not feel alone was actually really special,” Zee tells Murin.

“It’s really nice to sit down and talk to somebody that, whatever you say, it’s going to be understood or at least not judged,” says Murin of Zee.

John Cena and Nikki Bella Settle into Their New Home Before Ending Engagement

John Cena is showing off his goofy side.

In a new clip from the season 3 premiere of Total Bellas, Cena gets overly excited when a new rug gets delivered to the house he shares with then-finance Nikki Bella.

When Bella doesn’t alert Cena that the rug has arrived, he jokingly warns Bella not to mess with the “rug man.”

“I’ve been waiting all day like a dog with a bone,” he says. “I’m going to get all fist-deep in some rug.”

The pro-wrestler then goes into the other room to unpack the rug, which only makes him more excited.

“Nicole! How could you not have told me about this? This is a major thing that has happened today,” he yells across the house.

“Are you still doing the rug?” Bella, who is hanging out with her brother and mom in the living room responds.

“Never, ever question the rug man,” Cena replies.

In the new season, Bella, 34, and Cena, 40, move to San Diego together. But despite their new home, the couple spent long periods of time apart due to their busy schedules. Bella also opened up about the loneliness she felt in her relationship.

“What’s hard at times that people don’t realize about my relationship is I’m alone a lot,” Bella said during an interview segment on the show. “I’m alone in these big, beautiful homes.”

“Honestly, John and I have shared our bed together maybe 30 days total, out of six months,” she continued.

Bella called off her engagement to Cena three weeks before they were meant to walk down the aisle. Sources previously told PEOPLE that her decision to break up was due to their differing stances on marriage and having kids.

Though the pair has ended their romance, both Cena and Bella have acknowledged that they would like to one day get back together.

“John is such an amazing man. He really is the love of my life,” Bella told Entertainment Tonight at NBCUniversal’s Upfront Presentation in New York City on Monday.

“I truly hope one day that we can work it out and get back together,” she admitted. “I think there is hope.”

John Cena & Nikki Bella: Inside Their Canceled Nuptials on What Would Have Been Their Wedding Day

May 5 would have been John Cena and Nikki Bella‘s wedding day.

However, Bella, 34, called off the engagement three weeks before the WWE pair would walk down the aisle during their destination ceremony. Sources previously told PEOPLE that her decision to break up was due to their differing stances on marriage and having kids.

The nuptials would’ve occurred over a year after Cena, 40, proposed to Bella on live TV during WrestleMania 33 in April 2017. And there was even a TV special planned about their wedding set to air in July, but the concept was scrapped after they split after six years together.

RELATED: John Cena’s ‘Ups and Downs’ with Ex-Fiancée Nikki Bella — in His Own Words

While Cena and Bella will not be going ahead with their “I dos,” here are all the wedding details they had shared with their fans and viewers of Total Bella and Total Divas.

The Dress

The same month she accepted Cena’s proposal, Bella was already in full wedding mode as she spoke candidly about what she envisioned for her big day.

“I’m kind of happy I’m getting married in my 30s, because in my 20s I would’ve had something obnoxious, princess-like Kate Middleton. I want lace I think. I want something very classy, like classic and sexy. Something classic, form-fitting. I do want a veil,” Bella told PEOPLE in April 2017, jokingly adding, “Who am I without cleavage?”

Also in April 2017, Bella took a trip to New York Bridal Fashion Week to look at wedding dresses from Romona Keveza and Marchesa. In August 2017, Bella revealed hints about her gown, telling PEOPLE Now, “I can say that it’s a Marchesa.”

During an episode of Total Divas that aired in January 2018, Brie Bella surprised her twin sister with a bridal shopping trip, during which Nikki tried on multiple dress options.

Meanwhile, Cena did not opt for a custom look.

“I also have a few decent-looking tuxes in the wardrobe already, so depending on the colors and the schemes of the wedding and the theme, I might already have something,” he told PEOPLE in July 2017. “I have a few tailors that I work with, just because I’m not exactly somebody who can buy a suit off the rack.”

Wedding Planning

Following the engagement, Bella and Cena expressed their excitement for their wedding.

“I think everyone’s going to think I’m a bridezilla. I really do. I think I’m just so happy to be engaged and that John decided he wanted to get married. I just want to take this in and make it fun and happy,” Bella told PEOPLE in April 2017. “The minute it’s not fun, it’s like why are we doing this? This is why he didn’t want to do it, right? So I want to make it easy and romantic and intimate. Make it for us, no one else but us.”

In July 2017, Bella announced that Brie would be matron of honor.

Meanwhile, Cena told PEOPLE he doesn’t need all the pomp and circumstance.

“I’ve stressed to Nicole that I would really like to get it done because I guess it took me so long to ask, now that I’ve made the commitment I really just want to get married,” he said in July 2017.

“I want it yesterday, but we have a date,” Cena said in April, shortly before their breakup. “I’m excited, but I also have great perspective that I want the day to be important for Nicole.”

He added, “All that information rests on her shoulders. I’m involved in every single step of the process, but I am like the last checkpoint. So, let’s say, décor will be chosen. And then I’ll be given three options but be nudged to like number two. I will politely agree to number two, but I am very much actively a part of the process.”

In October 2017, Bella, who was competing on Dancing with the Stars at the time, revealed that the wedding date was pushed back. “We changed the date and location,” she said, adding that the adjustment was spurred by “schedules” as well as their many responsibilities and commitments.

Bachelorette Party — But No Bachelor Party

In March, Nikki celebrated with a nine-day bachelorette party in Paris with Brie and their closest friends.

Meanwhile, Cena said he had no interest in a stag night.

“No, I mean, why? Help me out. What is a bachelor party? I’m gonna skip it,” he told E! News in March.

The Big Day

While John and Nikki will not be tying the knot, Brie recently told PEOPLE that she will be there for her sister on their wedding date.

Brie said that she was considering planning a girls trip for her twin to keep their minds distracted. “I’m throwing some stuff out there to her. We might do something, we are deciding. There’s a part of her that just wants to be home,” she said in late April.

“I just told her, you lead the way and I’ll follow. … If it’s at home and eating pizza and devouring ice cream, I’m down for that or if want to escape to Napa and down a lot of wine, I’m down for that as well,” Brie added.

The mother of one also added that Total Bellas viewers will see everything that led up to the former couple’s separation.

“I have to give a lot of credit to John and Nicole. They really opened up their lives and they really wanted to close the curtain and be like this is it, we’re done,” she said. “My sister is really great with her fans in a way where she lets them connect with her. She lets them like go, ‘My life isn’t perfect and isn’t easy’ and lets them see the playbook of her life.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County Cast Goes without Makeup for PEOPLE: See Their Photos!

To celebrate PEOPLE’s upcoming Beautiful Issue, we’re showcasing some of the most glamorous ladies on TV as you’ve never seen them before. We asked the cast of every Real Housewives franchise to pose makeup-free — and they happily ditched their glam squads and shared natural selfies.

We’ve seen the ladies from Dallas, Beverly Hills, New York, New Jersey and Atlanta pose au natural, and today we’re unveiling the next city — Orange County. See the ladies of the O.C. without their signature mile-long lashes and professional hair and makeup in these barefaced photos below, and read on to find out what makes them feel the most confident and beautiful.

Watch PEOPLE Now every day for more makeup-free Housewives and don’t miss the cover reveal of PEOPLE’s Beautiful Issue on April 18th.

Vicki Gunvalson

When do you feel most beautiful?
After I get home from work, all my makeup is off and I finish with a nice relaxing bath.

If you were only going to wear one beauty product, what would it be?
Eyelashes or mascara.

Are there features you’re self-conscious about and if so, how have you helped yourself feel more confident about them?
As I get older, my neck really bothers me. There is nothing I can do but “own” my wrinkles and my age.

As you’ve gotten older, how has your beauty routine changed?
I pay much more attention to sunscreens and my new favorite thing is rose oil.

Tamra Judge

What physical feature have you always loved to play up?
My butt and my cheek bones.

Are there features you’re self-conscious about and if so, how have you helped yourself feel more confident about them?
My wide forehead. Creative hairstyles have helped as well as a bangs.

As you’ve gotten older, how has your beauty routine changed?
I don’t go in the sun anymore. And I find that less makeup is better.

Kelly Dodd

When do you feel most beautiful?
Everyday, when I eat healthy and exercise.

Are there features you’re self-conscious about and if so, how have you helped yourself feel more confident about them?
I get a lot of compliments on my legs, but I worry I may lose my firm butt because it wants to sag, so I literally work my booty off to stay toned.

As you’ve gotten older, how has your beauty routine changed?
When I was younger I use to just wash my face and call it a night. Now I wash, tone, brighten, retin A, moisturize. I believe beauty starts from the inside out, so I am more mindful now about nutrition, exercise and getting enough sleep.

If you were only going to wear one beauty product, what would it be?
Sunscreen to prevent wrinkles.

Why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Not Inviting Barack and Michelle Obama to Their Wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are keeping politics out of their upcoming royal wedding.

“It has been decided that an official list of political leaders – both U.K. and international – is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding. Her Majesty’s Government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by The Royal Household,” a Kensington Palace spokesman said Tuesday.

Their decision to omit world leaders from their guest list means former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama will not be attending the May 19 ceremony at Windsor Castle, PEOPLE understands.

While Harry and Meghan have become close to the couple (these photos of BFFs Harry and Michelle are proof!), their guest list is being reserved for long-standing friends they have known for years.

Even though Barack and Michelle won’t be at their wedding, Harry and Meghan have plans to visit with the Obamas in the near future.

“Both the couples look forward to seeing each other soon,” adds a royal source.

Harry has become close to Michelle in recent years through their mutual work on behalf of veterans. Barack also supported Harry’s Invictus Games in Toronto last September.

The absence of dignitaries at the wedding also means President Donald Trump and senior British politicians will not be invited.

“Those in attendance will be people who one or both of the couple has a existing direct relationship with,” adds a royal source.

Whereas royal heir Prince William‘s wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011 had world leaders and dignitaries in attendance, a similar list of prominent guests is “not required” for Harry, who is currently fifth-in-line to the throne (and soon to be sixth with the birth of William and Kate’s third child later this month). If there are senior members of other royal families invited to the wedding, it will be because Harry has a close relationship with them.

Insiders also note that William and Kate wed in the grand Westminster Abbey in front of about 1,900 invitees, but Harry and Meghan’s venue at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle is much smaller and will have around 600 guests. “It will still be a royal wedding and an important occasion,” the royal source adds.

The palace also released the names of some of the lucky 1,200 members of the public who have been invited from around the U.K. to the grounds of Windsor Castle for an up-close view of their wedding day. The special guests were chosen from “young people who have shown strong leadership, and those who have served their communities,” the palace says in a statement.

Another 200 guests will come from charities linked with Meghan and Harry, including WellChild for seriously ill kids and the Invictus Games for sick and injured veterans and serving military members. There will also be 100 children from two local schools – the Royal School, situated in the Great Park of Windsor, and St. George’s School, below the castle.

Jonathan Simkhai, Janet Mock Celebrate International Women’s Day Ringing Their Reps, Encouraging Vote

The fashion and entertainment worlds came together on Thursday to celebrate International Women’s Day at The Standard Hollywood as Jonathan Simkhai and writer, television host and transgender rights activist Janet Mock invited friends to dinner and to participate in The Standard’s Ring Your Rep initiative benefiting Swing Left.
The event drew Ian Somerhalder, Nikki Reed, Jaime King, Aluna Francis, Skyler Samuels, Arielle Kebbel. Angelique Soave, Gavin Turek, Brittany Xavier and Baddiewinkle, among others.

Simhkai first encountered Mock when he heard her speak at the Women’s March last year. “I was so impressed that I reached out to her to talk about ways we could work together. I’m not ‘political’ but anything I can do to support women, I will,” he said.
The designer created a black-and-white T-shirt that said “Feminist AF,” explaining, “It’s playful and it gets the message across.” Actress Diane Guerrero proudly wore hers with a black shorts suit, saying, “It speaks pretty clearly for itself.”
The shirts will be sold on jonathansimkhai.com, with proceeds benefiting Swing Left, the progressive political group which aims to take back the House for Democrats in 2018 by encouraging people to vote in the November mid-term elections.

Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady Share Never-Before-Seen Wedding Photos on Their 9th Anniversary

Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady are celebrating their 9th anniversary with some gorgeous throwback wedding photos from their private family album.

The supermodel, 37, took to Instagram to express her lasting love for her NFL star husband, writing, “What a ride this past 9 years have been. I love learning and growing with you. Happy anniversary love of my lifey! Te amo muito! ❤😘

In the never-before-seen photo, the couple kisses on the altar during a private, top-secret ceremony in Santa Monica. Bündchen wore a strapless lace Dolce & Gabbana gown with a bustier bodice and teamed with a romantic lace-trim veil.

Brady, 40, echoed a similar sentiment in his own photo post.

“Live, Laugh, Love…..and I Love You! Feliz Aniversário! Te Amo muito!!❤💍😍,” he wrote on this feed.

After officially tying the knot in February 2009, the couple hosted a party two months later on the beach in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Bündchen wore a white silk slip dress for the oceanside soirée, while Brady wore a blue linen suit. Last year, the model shared a photo of the couple dancing on the sand in celebration of their eighth anniversary.

Earlier this month, the power couple took a family trip back to Costa Rica with their children one week after Brady’s Super Bowl loss. They both shared sweet photos kissing one another under a white canopy on the beach. And while their bond seems closer than ever, they traveled down to paradise to celebrate Bündchen’s sister Rafaela’s wedding.

Ed Sheeran Says He Would Play Meghan and Harry’s First Dance at Their Wedding — If They Ask

If Meghan Markle and Prince Harry need a singer for their upcoming wedding, Ed Sheeran knows a guy…himself!

After the Grammy winner received an MBE, signifying he’s a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in recognition of his services to music and charity, on Thursday, he told reporters that the royal couple have not been in touch about serenading them for their first dance as husband and wife.

But should they ask, Sheeran’s down for the gig.

“Yeah, why not?!” he said.

After all, the 26-year-old does have some experience as a wedding singer — in 2015, he crashed the Sydney wedding of Kya and Matt Debono and performed his romantic hit “Thinking Out Loud” for their first dance.

Prince Charles bestowed the MBE honor to Sheeran on behalf of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. Because he was not made a “Sir” (or knight), the ceremony did not involve the traditional sword tap on the shoulder.

After the ceremony, Sheeran revealed that his grandfather was a fan of the monarchy and thought he would be proud that his grandson received such an honor.

“Do you know what I love, my grandfather was a massive royalist, he had all the commemorative plates and stuff, and he died on this day four years ago, so it’s actually quite a nice full circle thing, I guess he’d be pretty proud,” he told reporters.

RELATED VIDEO: The Sweet Reason Why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Want a Banana Wedding Cake

Harry and Meghan’s wedding will be in May at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The couple’s Kensington Palace spokesman said the soon-to-be newlyweds are “extremely grateful following the warm public response” to their engagement.

“Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year,” said the spokesman. “They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple.”

The couple are also said to want a wedding cake made from bananas, a source told The Telegraph. And the reason why has a romantic twist.

In addition to Harry reportedly loving “anything with banana,” the fruit has also played a cheeky role in their relationship.

Just hours after their budding romance was confirmed in late October of last year, the former Suits actress posted a cryptic image of two cuddling bananas on her Instagram. Alongside the quirky romantic photo, she added the caption, “Sleep tight xx.”

The unexpected banana post sent royal watchers into a frenzy over the new couple’s relationship. And now, just one year later, they’re planning to celebrate their big day with a banana cake — which would be a first for a royal wedding.

Karl Lagerfeld: In Their Own Words

What’s Karl Lagerfeld’s greatest contribution to fashion? An array of industry figures weigh in:
 
“Karl Lagerfeld has set a unique design path ever since his first collections and collaborations with major luxury houses such as Fendi. Never has anyone deployed such inventiveness and coherence in fashion over such a long period. If I had to pinpoint the source of his talent, I would seek it in drawing: Karl sketches admirably well, he has an artist’s eye and a craftsman’s hand. He is a rare combination of a deep European culture, a keen sense of line and silhouette, and a continuously renewed passion for the tradition of artisanal professions whose know-how he invigorates with each collection. I am infinitely grateful to him for his friendship and his loyalty. He knows how deeply I respect and admire him.” — Bernard Arnault
 
“I doubt that Karl Lagerfeld has ever been bored in his life. He takes his inspiration from so many places and so many things. He took on the codes of Coco Chanel’s iconic brand and injected it with a spirit and creativity that has kept it modern and relevant to women of all ages. He has such energy and such incredible influence, not

Rachel Lindsay & Bryan Abasolo on Their Interracial Relationship: ‘Love Is Blind — We’re Just a Man & Woman in Love’

 

Even before her journey on The Bachelorette began, Rachel Lindsay made a personal commitment to stay true to her heart.

As the first black lead in Bachelor Nation history, Lindsay admittedly felt the pressure to choose a black man from her pool of contestants.

“It wasn’t always easy. It wasn’t. But I had to not let the pressure get to me,” Lindsay, 32, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I had to rise above it to find my happy ending at the end of all of this.”

“I knew that people would be watching myself in this role for the first time, and there would be people who were positive and people who were negative, and I would feel pressure from certain audiences that would say you ‘had to pick a black man.’ And then I would have other audiences that didn’t care about that,” Lindsay shares.

“But for me, before I said yes to being the Bachelorette I had to get over . I had to realize that not everyone was going to be for me when it came to the decisions that I make. Not everyone was going to be happy about my decisions, but I needed to be selfish in this journey and find the one who was perfect for me,” Lindsay explains. “I couldn’t make a decision based on anyone else because I’m the one who’s going to have to live with it.”

And new fiancé Bryan Abasolo couldn’t be prouder of how the Dallas-born lawyer portrayed herself on the show. “Such strength, class and grace,” says Abasolo, who got down on one knee and proposed to Lindsay on Monday night’s season 13 finale.

For more on Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay’s engagement to Bryan Abasolo, including their thoughts on their big debut and plan for the future, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

Reflecting on their romance, the newly engaged couple says that race never played a factor in them falling in love.

“Love is blind,” says Miami-based chiropractor Abasolo.

“I’m not going to pick somebody because they look a certain way. I could’ve done that without doing the show. I really put my all in this because I was trying to find that one for me. I was trying to find my person — the person who I want to spend the rest of my life with — and I can’t let color dictate that,” says Lindsay. ”

“I can’t be blindsided by the fact that I have to choose this person because they look the same way that I do. That’s not fair. That’s not what love is about. That doesn’t define love. It’s not my definition of love,” she continues. “My definition of love is sitting right next to me. So it was really important for me to not do that. Everything else was background noise and I was just zeroed in on finding that person for me.”

Now that the couple no longer has to keep their engagement under wraps, and will now be able spend time with one another in public, they realize their lives will be propelled into spotlight.

Watch People Cover Story – Bachelorette Finale: Rachel Lindsayavailable now, on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN).  Go to PEOPLE.com/PEN, or download the PEN app on your favorite mobile or connected TV device.

 

Still, they’re not intimidated about being in a high-profile interracial relationship — or any criticism that may result from others’ biases.

“Honestly, we don’t even think about it or talk about it. I mean, we’re just a man and a woman in love. We just want to enjoy life,” Abasolo shares. “I just think we’re two mature adults, that we can handle anything moving forward. Communication is a big key.”

Adds Lindsay, “I think we’re both strong enough to rise above whatever criticism we may face by being an interracial couple. But between the two of us, we had those tough questions during the season. I know that he is capable of handling it, as am I. For us, we just love each other.”

Utah Couple Who Lost Five Babies in 11 Months Honor Their Children’s Memory: We Wake Up to ‘Raw Hearts and Pain’

After losing their second child, Shanna, to a congenital heart defect three months after she was born, Jason and Clarissa Osborn of Spanish Fork, Utah, were overjoyed six months later to learn that they were expecting quadruplet daughters with the help of infertility treatments.

Through baby showers put on by friends and family, they filled their home with four of everything: four bassinets, four high chairs, four strollers, four car seats and case after case of formula and diapers.

Then, on June 11 this summer, they were hit once again with heartache.

Clarissa, 28, went into labor in her 23rd week of pregnancy, requiring an emergency C-section. Kylie, Ellie, Savannah and Lexi, who were each born weighing less than one pound, all died within three days of each other.

“We were able to say goodbye to them all, and we were grateful for that,” Jason, 32, who works in human resources for Nestle, tells PEOPLE. “But after already losing one daughter, to lose another four was heart-wrenching. I kept thinking, ‘Why all four? Couldn’t just one have made it?’ It was extremely difficult to realize that none of them were coming home.”

“I knew that it would be emotionally hard to go home and see all of those baby things piled up,” adds Clarissa, a homemaker, with one son, Carter, 4. “So we arranged to have somebody come and get everything and donate it to families who have babies born with heart defects like Shanna, through a charity called Intermountain Healing Hearts. It was important to us to pay it forward somehow.”

Now the Osborns have decided to honor the five daughters they lost within 11 months an additional way: They started the Shanna K. Osborn Foundation to award $ 500 educational scholarships every year to college students who have survived heart defects.

“We wanted our daughters to go to college, so this is a way for us to follow some other young people through their journey and support them, even though we don’t have our little girls,” Jason tells PEOPLE. “It’s a way to keep them in our lives and keep their memories alive, and bring smiles instead of pain.”

The Osborns, who met when they were attending college at Brigham Young University-Idaho, dreamed of having a large family after they married in 2010. Then, shortly after their son was born in 2013, Clarissa developed brain tumors that required radiation treatment and affected her ability to conceive naturally again.

Through IUI (intrauterine insemination) treatment, Clarissa was soon pregnant with Shanna and discovered at her 20-week ultrasound that her daughter didn’t have pulmonary and aortic arteries. “We were told she would require open heart surgery a few days after she was born,” she tells PEOPLE.

Born four months later on April 17, 2016, Shanna spent a month in the hospital after surgery, then the Osborns took her home to meet her older brother.

“Carter got to love on her and was thrilled to have a little sister,” says Clarissa. “Things were going well. Then one Sunday morning, we awoke to a cry we had never heard before.”

She and Jason ran to check on Shanna, who felt cold to the touch. Minutes later, the infant stopped breathing, so Jason performed CPR until paramedics arrived to race her to the hospital. “They tried and tried to resuscitate her,” says Clarissa, “but it was too late.”

To endure four times the sorrow with the deaths of the quads was numbing, she says, with her and Jason waking up daily to “raw hearts and pain.”

Overwhelming support from family, friends and strangers who learned about their plight on a Facebook page they’d started to remember their daughters, “helped pull us through and made us realize we still had a lot of living to do,” Jason tells PEOPLE.

“There are tough nights when we wish we still had our five little girls,” he says, “so it’s therapeutic to talk about them and remember the brief time they were with us and felt our love. Remembering that has been very healing.”

Andy Roddick Reveals Wife Brooklyn Decker Is Pregnant with Their Second Child — a Girl

Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick‘s family will soon be set for a game of doubles.

Roddick revealed that his wife Decker, 30, is pregnant with their second child — a daughter — when he gave an acceptance speech at the International Tennis Hall of Fame Class of 2017 ceremony in Newport, Rhode Island, on Saturday.

“My wife Brooklyn, most people don’t know you’re kind of nuts,” the 34-year-old said. “You’re my partner in crime. In a life full of good fortune, being around you has been by far the luckiest part. I’m a better human for us having met 10 years ago.

“Brook, I don’t know how you juggle it all,” he continued. “I see it every day and it still doesn’t make any sense to me. You’re an unreal artist, businesswoman, mother, wife, sister and friend. You hear a lot of guys who find it very tough to walk away from professional sports. You’re the reason why my personal transition into a quasi-normal, everyday life has been gratifying and full. Hank will someday realize how lucky he is. Our daughter that’s coming will also realize she has the best mother on earth. Simply, thank you for being you.”

The retired tennis pro and Grace and Frankie star are already parents to son Hank, who will turn 2 in September.

Roddick also gave a shout-out to pregnant tennis legend Serena Williams, saying that he “can’t wait” to see her become a mother.

“I can’t wait to watch them play in the Wimbledon final in 2030,” he joked.

When Families Can’t Afford Their Child’s Funeral, Patricia Quinn Is There to Help

For Philadelphia funeral director Patricia Quinn, helping bereaved families bury their children is tough enough.

But finding out they can’t afford to hold a funeral for their children, let alone bury them, was heartbreaking.

“It’s so devastating,” says Quinn, 49, the mother of a 15-year-old girl. “Most of the parents are young. They barely have insurance on themselves, let alone on their kid.”

So she decided to do something about it.

In March 2006, she founded Final Farewell (finalfarewell.org), a nonprofit that has so far paid for funerals, headstones, graves or urns for more than 500 children in Pennsylvania and across the country.

“She’s probably the single most dedicated human being I’ve ever met,” says Sylvia Urrata, a former bereavement care coordinator at the Philadelphia medical examiner’s office. “She’s never once declined to help with any child I had.”

The very first family Quinn helped was that of Eddie Lichtenhahn, the 9-year-old son of a Philadelphia police officer who died suddenly of a brain aneurysm in February 2006. She saw a flier for a ‘Beef ‘n Beer’ fundraiser for the boy’s funeral costs and knew she could help—ultimately negotiating a lower price for his headstone and then pitching in with a $ 500 donation.

“I couldn’t thank her enough,”  the child’s father, Ed, 59, tells PEOPLE. “It meant a lot to us and it always will. I’ve always said to her — whatever she needed, I’d be there for her.”

For the first couple of years Quinn had to seek out families to help through death notices in local newspapers. But after a while, she developed a network of social workers at local hospitals and the local medical examiner’s office who would contact her when they had someone in need, she says. Finances are often tight but Quinn refuses to turn anyone down.

“It’s just the right thing to do,” she says. “I cannot imagine having your child pass away.”

So THAT’S Why People Are Putting Snail Essence On Their Faces

Run an online search for “snail essence,” and you’ll find a whole host of skincare products that feature snail secretions ― yes, the goo that comes out of a snail ― as a key ingredient.

Used as a skin treatment in ancient Greece, the substance has made a big comeback in recent years as a Korean-based beauty trend. Brands like Tony Moly and Missha sell moisturizers, masks, makeup creams and serums with snail slime in them, and a snail-infused “EscarGlow” facial has made its gooey mark on New York City.

New York City dermatologist Tabisum Mir told HuffPost exactly where snail secretions come from.

When snails are agitated, they excrete a thick fluid as a means to protect themselves,” Mir said. When concentrated, this slimy snail mucin is said to aid human skin by hydrating, preventing aging and improving wrinkles and scars.

Popular products generally run between $ 6 (for a snail gel mask by Missha) to $ 60 (for Tony Moly’s “timeless ferment snail essence set”). 

So, is it worth it?

Likely not: Snail mucin is packed with nutrients, but there’s no guarantee it’ll be effective as a skin treatment, Marie Jhin, a dermatologist at California Pacific Medical Center, told HuffPost.

“The slime is not consistently concentrated and [benefits] may depend on the type of snail and amount excreted,” she said. “The way the slime is processed is not easily done and universal, thus the formulation of the slime may not be the same [across products].”

You can find the same key nutrients of snail slime ― which Jhin says are hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes and peptides ― elsewhere, she added. Mir agrees.

“There is nothing specifically unique to snail mucin that you cannot get anywhere else,” she said. 

Ling replenishing hydrator, for example, comes recommended from Into The Gloss and contains the same moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid as snail mucin. And Goldfaden MD’s bright eyes serum is a good source of peptides that doesn’t contain mollusk goop.

The glycolic acid in snail mucin is said to help your cells produce collagen and elastin, which even out skin tone and smooth its surface. But any product with glycolic acid can do the same, Mir says: She recommends her own line of exfoliating pore pads, and Allure recommends The Magic Pads as a cheaper option. 

Limited research suggests moderate success of snail slime in improving skin. In one small study, California researchers prescribed snail essence creams to 25 participants with skin damage and found that it improved eye wrinkles and skin texture after 12 weeks. That study dealt with slime from the same type of snail whose mucin is available in products like Biophelle’s, researcher Sabrina Fabi told HuffPost, while noting that the study was not a large clinical trial. 

Overall, snail mucin’s practical benefits are few, according to Beverly Hills dermatologist Jennifer Ahdout, who said she conducted her own review of the topic after patients started asking about it. 

“[Mucin] can help with hydration of the skin, but to claim that it treats wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin conditions is quite bogus,” she told HuffPost.

Jhin says you’re free to give snail products a whirl if you’d like, but do so with caution as you would any beauty product: Use only a small amount at first on a specific spot to check for reactions or allergies, and don’t use if you have sensitive skin. 

Best of luck!

Bride Serenades New Wife With An Elvis Song During Their First Dance

These newlyweds are starting their marriage off on the right note.

On April 28, bride Heather Ni Chearnaigh surprised her new wife Lauren O’Sullivan during their first dance with a beautiful rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”

Halfway through the song, the rest of their guests joined in for a sing-along at the Cork, Ireland wedding.

“I have always expressed myself through music and what better way to express my love for my wife than through a song with such meaningful lyrics!” Heather, a piano teacher and wedding singer, told HuffPost in an email.

The performance was a complete surprise to the Lauren and their guests. Before the wedding, Heather had been practicing with Lauren’s Uncle Mick, who plays guitar in the video, and also arranged for printed lyrics to be handed out to their other family and friends. 

“As a wedding singer, I am used to singing in front of crowds and nerves would never be an issue, but singing to my wife, the most important person in my life, and my biggest critic, now that was nerve-wracking,” Heather told HuffPost. “Tears streamed from Lauren’s face as I started to sing. Immediately after the first dance Lauren hugged me and said, ‘You get more amazing every day.’” 

The couple first met online four and a half years ago and have been inseparable ever since. Below, more photos from the couple’s special day.

Couple Celebrates The Arrival Of Their Baby Girl With The Sweetest Shoot

You don’t need to have a baby on the way to do one of those trendy “gender reveal” photo shoots.

Missouri couple Kennedy Sartwell and her boyfriend of five years Jake Terry decided to celebrate the arrival of their pup Raven in April with a super cute photo shoot inspired by the ones moms- and dads-to-be often do to announce the sex of their babies. 

The couple filled a box with pink balloons to introduce their baby girl, and then snapped some pics with the most photogenic little face you ever did see.

“I’ve been looking for a puppy for quite a while and I’ve been wanting some way to announce it to the world,” Kennedy told ABC News. “Mom and I were coming up with ideas and thought of a [gender] reveal.”

Initially, the photos were just supposed to be just for the couple’s friends and family to enjoy. But after Kennedy’s mom, Cristy Sartwell of Infinite Smiles Photography, posted them on Facebook, they went viral with more than 100,000 likes and 160,000 shares.

Kennedy told Inside Edition that Raven, a Labrador-German shepherd mix, got a little fussy while getting her picture taken and kept getting distracted by dandelions.

“We had to chase her for the entire photo shoot,” she said.

But the fur-tastic photos made it all worthwhile:

9 Other Superheroines Who Deserve Their Own Movie Adaptations

This week, director Patty Jenkins made history. She became the first woman director to head up a summer blockbuster ― a big-budget sector of the film industry typically reserved for action movies directed by men.

That Hollywood has been notoriously unkind to women directors makes the feat more remarkable still. Jenkins ― whose biggest flick prior to “Wonder Woman” was made with less than a tenth of the budget ― is only the fourth woman director to head up a project in the $ 100 million plus range.

What’s more: critics say the film’s a hit.

In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins was modest about her early success. “I can’t take on the history of 50 percent of the population just because I’m a woman,” she said. And we agree. There’s no dearth of talented women directors who haven’t been given a chance on big-budget projects; hopefully, Jenkins’ efforts will open doors for them, too.

We’ve got a few in mind. Between Marvel’s “She-Hulk” and DC Comics’ brainy Natasha Irons, there are dozens of superheroine stories waiting to be adapted into summertime hits. Below, we’ve paired our favorite women directors with the winningest heroes we love.

“She-Hulk,” directed by Karyn Kusama

In recent Marvel installments of her story, “She-Hulk” has become much more than an object of desire. Mariko Tamaki — author of “This One Summer” — gives Jennifer Walters her own story, in which she’s coping with PTSD. And Karyn Kusama — director of “Girlfight” and “Jennifer’s Body” — has proven that she’s able to take on action-centered stories with dark psychological underpinnings.

“Scarlet Witch,” directed by Reed Morano

Elisabeth Olsen is currently playing the Scarlet Witch, aka Wanda Maximoff, in the “Avengers” movies, beginning with “Age of Ultron.” Maximoff is (maybe) the daughter of Magneto, the twin sister of Quicksilver, and her husband is Vision, so a film centered specifically on Scarlet Witch ― whose powers include being able to alter reality in various ways ― would be a true comic book family drama. We’d like to see Reed Morano, the director of the first three episodes of Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” as well as films like “Skeleton Twins,” give the adaptation a bleak, intimate edge.

“Raven,” directed by Amber Tamblyn

Raven is a half-human, half-demon superhero who was rejected by the Justice League due to her dangerous ancestry. She winds up forming her own group of rowdy do-gooder teens ― a story that seems suited to Amber Tamblyn’s penchant for dark and feeling character studies.

“Faith,” directed by Amma Asante

Faith, with her psychokinetic and telepathic powers, has earned praise as a body-positive superheroine who, according to writer Amy Diegelman, is “fat […] and not hiding.” In her solo comic, Faith (aka Zephyr) has a boring job at a BuzzFeed-like media company, is dealing with a breakup and is living in a new city ― the perfectly relatable millennial scenario. Amma Asante, who directed 2017’s “Beauty and the Beast” remake “Belle,” could bring out the best of this teen-friendly story.

“Natasha Irons,” directed by Ava DuVernay

Geeks everywhere already know that DuVernay is behind the promising new adaptation of “A Wrinkle in Time,” so she’s already established herself as a woman director who’s interested in fantastical stories. DuVernay could work her magic on any of the Marvel of DC characters, really, but a cinematic retelling of Natasha Irons’ story would be worthy of her talents. Irons — like Tony Stark and her uncle, Steel — begins her world-saving career as an engineer donning Steel’s powerful suit. 

“Poison Ivy,” directed by Dee Rees

Maybe you don’t want a “Poison Ivy” remake, but we do. And who better to make it happen than Dee Rees? She’s known for directing the HBO film “Bessie,” the docuseries “When We Rise” and an episode of “Empire,” but is tied to the “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams” Amazon project, giving her some sci-fi experience. In the comic books, Poison Ivy ― or Pamela Lillian Isley ― is a botanist-turned-eco-terrorist (and sometimes Batman love interest), which seems like a complex villain plot built for our post-Paris Accord era.  

“Thor Girl,” directed by Mimi Leder

Barring her uncreative name, Thor Girl (née Tarene) is a full-fledged superhero deserving of her own flick. After fighting supervillain Loki alongside Thor, she sought refuge on earth under the alias Tara Olson. Mimi Leder, the director of “Deep Impact” and executive producer on “The Leftovers,” would be a suitable match for Tarene.

“Buffy Summers,” directed by Andrea Arnold

“Buffy” would make for another contentious remake, but one that, under the helm of “American Honey” director Andrea Arnold, could be incredible. We’d love to see a film adaptation focus more on the mundane struggles of a high schooler living in suburban California ― which also happens to a “Hellmouth,” opening up Buffy’s home to a demonic gateway. 

“Echo,” directed by Heather Rae

Echo, aka Ronin, made her first appearance in “Daredevil” Vol. 2, Issue #9, as a Native American woman with gifted intellect and “photographic reflexes,” who also happens to be one of the first deaf comic book characters. Her biography could move in so many directions ― she’s been in love with Daredevil, friends with Wolverine and Dr. Strange, allied with the New Avengers. Heather Rae, who’s mostly directed documentaries (like the Sundance and Tribeca darling “Trudell,” which tells the story of historic Native American poet and activist John Trudell), has experience working on narrative films as a producer. We’d love to see what someone with her resume could do with a superhero flick.

You’re Old, And Hanson’s Kids Are Starring In Their Music Videos Now

Alert: Hanson is low-key good again. 

Actually, as family bands go, the trio has managed to consistently deliver solid (mmm) bops since the early ‘90s and now they’re ready to hand it off to a new generation aka their ridiculously adorable offspring. 

As part of the 25th anniversary celebration of the band, brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson have released a new single and music video for the track “I Was Born” off their upcoming greatest hits album, “Middle of Everywhere.”

Starring 11 of their 12 children, the black-and-white music video features the Hanson brood lip-syncing to the catchy single, as they try out various careers like being a doctor, ballerina, scientist and boxer. 

“Featuring our own kids made sense because we knew they would share an honest performance,” Zac told People about the decision to include their children in the video. “We loved the fact that it added another dimension to the story of pursuing our dreams for the last 25 years.”

“From the earliest conversations about this song, we imagined kids featured in the video to elevate the song’s message of unbridled optimism for the future,” Taylor added.

Who knows what the future will bring for the Hanson kids, but clearly they were born to be rock stars, just like their dads.

William and Harry Award Young Heroes in Honor of Their Late Mom Princess Diana

Prince William and Prince Harry had a special task on Thursday – presenting young people from around the world with an award established in memory of their mother, Princess Diana.

Twenty young recipients traveled to St. James’s Palace to receive the Legacy Award set up by the Diana Award charity to recognize the “monumental impact” they have made on society.

Among the remarkable stories of social activism and selfless volunteering was that of Mercy Ngulube, 18, from Cardiff, Wales, “who has used her own personal painful experience of stigma and discrimination to drive her commitment and pursuit of equality for young people living with HIV,” the charity says. Mercy, who was born with HIV, has campaigned against the stigma of HIV and AIDS often anonymously by using “social media to counter and correct online misinformation about HIV and challenge negativity and ignorance.”

She is the current chairman of Children’s HIV Association Youth Committee that campaigns on behalf of young people living with HIV and met Harry in Durban at an international conference on HIV and AIDS.

From America, Jaylen Arnold, 16, was honored for his anti-bullying crusade and Faith Dickinson, 14, from Toronto, Canada, has an award for her Cuddles for Cancer blanket-making project.

One of the judges on the panel s Julia Samuel, Founder Patron of Child Bereavement UK and a friend Diana, who said she “was humbled by reading the extraordinary achievements of every young person who was nominated for this award.”

“The winners are truly inspirational — often coming from extremely difficult circumstances. It left me feeling profoundly hopeful for our future knowing these young people will be part of that future and our future leaders.”

Tessy Ojo, the Diana Award’s chief executive, added, “Today is about two things; celebrating young people for their selfless contribution to society, their courage and bravery, sometimes in the face of adversity and demonstrating to young people that we, as a collective, value them.”

In addition to meeting Diana’s sons at the palace, the winners will be able to access the Diana Award’s development program that helps enhance their skills in four key areas of leadership, community development, social entrepreneurship and technology for good.

The Diana Award runs programs from anti-bullying to encouraging mentoring which have received public support from William and Harry.

Some Facebook users are seeing a rocket icon in their app. Here's what it does

Some Facebook users are seeing a rocket icon in their app. Here's what it doesIn recent weeks, some users have started noticing a rocket-shaped icon in their Facebook mobile app.  The icon, positioned right next to the main news feed icon, gives you a different type of news feed, one which displays popular posts from people and pages that you haven't befriended or liked.  SEE ALSO: Facebook's new emoji are finally available to everyone I've had the new feature on my Android phone for at least three weeks now, though it tends to disappear and reappear every now and then. (I’m based in Croatia, but there are also reports of users seeing the new icon in the UK.) The rocket feed offers a great deal of local content, so it's possible that it's showing posts that are popular near my geographical location. However, I'm also seeing some posts that are relevant to my interests, so it might not be completely disassociated from my likes/friends.  Most of the posts I'm seeing in the new feed are from pages (some of which I've liked), and some are from users that aren't my friends. Image: Stan Schroeder/Mashable The new feed seems to be remarkably similar to Instagram's Explore tab, which shows you posts that the company's algorithms have determined to be relevant to your interests. 
UPDATE: April 3, 2017, 2 p.m. CEST A reader (thanks, Petar) sent us a few screenshots of the new feature as seen on the iPhone, where it is slightly different. Here, the new feed (labeled "Explore") has more of a magazine vibe to it, with two news items laid out side by side.  The new Explore feed looks a little different on the iPhone. Image: Petar Zivkovic This isn't the first time Facebook is testing a different type of news feed on a (typically small) subset of its users. For example, in April 2016 we've seen a new style of news feed which shows stories clustered around certain topics. 
Mashable has contacted Facebook for more details on this new feature and will update the post when we hear back from them.  WATCH: Check out WhatsApp's new Statuses

In a new video from The Skin Deep documentary series, the couple discuss their religions ― Allie practices Judaism and Mat is a Catholic ― and how their families have suggested their relationship will end in heartache.

“My dad was just like, ‘Oh, her family’s not going to like you just because you’re Catholic and she’s Jewish,’” Mat says. “But I don’t really date you for your family.” 

Allie, though, admits that she initially worried that their parents were onto something.

“I remember being so terrified that, what if they’re correct? What if I’m fighting and it’s not going to work?” Allie admits.

Interestingly enough, when Mat asks Allie to share when she feels closest to him, she says it’s when their families meddle.

“It doesn’t matter with all the battles,” she says. “You’re my best friend.”

Watch the clip above to hear more of the couple’s story, including how they intend to raise their future kids in both religions.

World War II Veterans From Around The World Tell Their Own Moving Stories

The word “veteran,” at least to Americans, is likely to elicit an image of a reverent man, chin held high. But, as photographer Sasha Maslov illustrates in his new book, Veterans: Faces of World War II, veterans from a single, recent war include a huge swath of people, with wildly different perspectives. 

One of his subjects ― from Austin, Texas ― lamented that he got swept up in the draft and had to witness the loss of so many friends. But several others signed up willingly, including Themistoklis Marinos of Athens, Greece, who voiced his enthusiasm for fighting “against invaders.” Maslov took Marinos’s portrait sitting in his living room, surrounded by crosses and other religious iconography. 

His story is among the dozens told and chronicled by Maslov, who aimed with this book to collect veteran stories from around the world and to thereby illustrate just how far-reaching the effects of World War II were.

“The scale of this conflict was so large that I wanted to show as many angles of it as I could,” Maslov told HuffPost in an interview. “Then I discovered that in many countries, including the United States, the view of World War II is somewhat shaped by what is being taught in schools or what the ‘government line’ is, so it often isn’t accurate. That’s why it was so important to get the stories of the people who actually participated in the war and witnessed it first hand.”

When he began the project in 2011, Maslov wanted to be sure to capture not only his subjects but their environments, and how their homes and other personal spaces reflected their personalities. “The folks I photographed for this project had lived in their houses for a long time, so their homes said a lot about who they were,” Maslov said.

“With the rise of hatred globally, maybe this is a good time for this,” Maslov said. “What I’m afraid of is that people in need of history lessons now are not seeking education.”

Read a few excerpts from Maslov’s book below:

Imants Zeltins, from Bauska, Latvia

“By February 1, 1945, the Americans had invaded Germany. The soldiers put signs on hospital doors that forbade patients to leave the area. After a few days,
all the Latvians there got together and literally cried, not because the war was ending, but because they knew Latvia would be once again occupied by the Russians.”

Richard Overton from Austin, Texas, United States

“I didn’t want to go to war. Uncle Sam picked me; he enlisted me. […] I lost a lot of friends. Everybody in the army was my friend. I did regret going, but after I went, I was glad I went. I learned a lot.”‘

Anna Nho, from Almaty, Kazakhstan

“In 1937, many Koreans were deported from the Far East [of Russia]. We were transferred to Karaganda in Kazakhstan. They put up tents for housing. A few families lived in each one, but it was so cold that someone died every day.”

Themistoklis Marinos, from Athens, Greece

“I finished my school in Zakynthos and then moved to Athens to study economics. To finance my studies, I was also working odd jobs. When the Italians attacked Greece, I was called to arms, and I stopped studying.

“When the war was declared, we were very enthusiastic, and we were looking forward to fighting against the invaders. The Germans and Italians took over Greece, and I left for Crete, which was still free.

“With no practical experience in the military, I took part in the Battle of Crete.”

Jaku Kikuchi, from Tsukuba-Shi, Japan

“All these American planes would fly over and bomb us. When the Japanese airplanes met them in the air, the Americans would shoot them down. I do remember being very scared then.”

Sworn to Secrecy! The Stranger Things Kids Can’t Even Share Their Season 2 Scripts with Family

 

The highly anticipated season 2 of Stranger Things is six months away — and sorry to break it to you, Upside Down fans, but things are going to remain shrouded in secrecy for a while.

Stars Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo are on the cover of the May issue of emmy magazine (out May 17), and PEOPLE can reveal an exclusive First Look at their interview, in which they open up about their top-secret work on the upcoming season of the cult favorite Netflix series.

Filming takes place in Atlanta at Screen Gems Studios — and while it may be sunny and hot outside, it’s dark and quiet on set, where only hair and makeup and a few key crew-members are permitted.

“My brother always asks me, ‘Gate, can you send me the script?’ ” says Matazarro, 14. “I’m like, ‘It’s a new season, and it’s a lot stricter than last year ’cause he read them last year, but this year he’s not able to ’cause we don’t want any, like, hacking interference.”

United in their shared secrets, the five costars have grown exceptionally close — and Brown, 13, who describes herself as “a real girl’s girl in pink and pearls and rings and necklaces,” has found her way to fit in with the boys by taking up whiffle ball.

In particular, she and Schnapp, 12, have grown particularly close.

“Noah comes around almost every weekend for sleepovers,” she says. “We watch really scary movies on Netflix like The Babadook and Hush.”

In fact, watching movies was one of the ways the young actors initially prepared to take on their roles, with creators Ross and Matt Duffer assigning them a list of classics to watch, including E.T., The Goonies, Jaws and Poltergeist.

Schnapp also says his father helped school him on the mindset of the ’80s: “They were always outside,” says Schnapp. “It’s all phones and computers now.”

“You know, I kind of miss the ’80s. Even though I wasn’t alive,” he adds with a laugh.

Stranger Things season 2 hits Netflix on Oct. 31.

The Best ‘Lazy Games’ For Exhausted Parents To Play With Their Kids

Playing with energetic kids can be pretty exhausting. But thankfully the funny ladies of The BreakWomb have a solution.

In their newest comedy video, “Lazy Games to Play With Kids,” the moms share some of their favorite ways to avoid expending energy. The “lazy games” for parents include playing lifeguard (and casting yourself as the swimmer waiting to be saved), playing doctor (and casting yourself as the patient undergoing surgery) and playing superheroes (and casting yourself as the captive needing to be rescued by Superman, Wonder Woman or Spider-Man).

There’s also the tactic of playing hide and seek but never actually looking for your hiding child or the classic “Who Can Keep Their Eyes Closed The Longest?”

We’re sensing a pattern here…
