Someone call the Fashion Police. In what is perhaps the most extreme case of “who wore it best,” six women were all shocked to discover they showed up for a wedding wearing the exact same dress. And no, they weren’t bridesmaids. The guests spotted one another at the Australian event wearing identical navy blue lace-patterned...

Of all the performances at last week’s launch of the new iPhone portfolio, it’s the audacity of the marketing department’s switcheroo from the iPhone 7S to the iPhone 8 that has impressed me the most.

Ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer killed it on the live shows finale last night for America’s Got Talent, having two puppets sing a Beatles song after arguing on stage. Farmer has been a fan-favorite over the course of the season and now she is a front-runner on the show. The results will be revealed tonight on AGT live and her chances of winning are very good.

Former AGT winner, a ventriloquist named Terry Fator, says that Farmer definitely has his vote. And, he told Parade that his only advice to Farmer is this:

Relax and have the time of your life—just have fun. Because really, you know at the end of the day, this is going to be a memory she’s going to carry with her for the rest of her life.

On Instagram, Farmer wrote about what she has considered to be her best moment during her AGT journey and she said:

I would have to say the best moment I had on my #AGT journey was when Mel B hit the Golden Buzzer for me … I truly couldn’t believe it! I have also loved meeting so many inspiring people along the way that I can now say are my lifelong friends! Thank you America’s Got Talent.

She also gushed to Parade that:

I knew that the judges gave out golden buzzers, but I really didn’t even— I thought about it and I was like that would just be the most awesomest thing ever, but we just went with our expectations really low. Like we really wanted the judges to say nice things and just to get four yeses— but even better.

Farmer’s mother Misty then chimed in, saying:

Darci still has to work around our house. Just because she got a golden buzzer doesn’t mean she doesn’t still empty the dishwasher, help me with laundry, water the flowers for me and help around. I mean, she’s part of a big family.

Farmer credits her parents for keeping her grounded, even though she is so talented and is one of the front-runners on AGT this season.

Farmer is 12 years old and she hails from Oklahoma.

Details behind the raid on Manafort's house show that Mueller really is 'following the money'

A former federal prosecutor explains the complex nature of the statements made to former Donald Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort.

“If he’s been told that he’s a target—that he’s likely to be indicted—I think the way you interpret that is he’s likely to be indicted,” said Michael Zeldin, a former federal prosecutor who served as special counsel to Mueller when he was assistant attorney general in the DOJ’s Criminal Division.

The trick here is that there’s no trick at all. Those interpreting the pre-dawn raid on one of several homes owned by Manafort to be a tactic to get the man known as “the torturer’s lobbyist” to roll over on the rest of the Trump campaign are ignoring the more important point: The intention was to find information related to Manafort’s crimes and charge him.

In details provided by TPM, the warrant for searching Manafort’s residence included activities going back to 2006. That would certainly cover the period in which Manafort provided foreign money to a pair of U.S. lobbying firms, in violation of the law. But it would even more neatly proscribe the period, starting in 2006, in which Manafort made real estate purchases at three Trump properties.

According to a report by WNYC, Manafort has engaged in a series of curious real-estate deals over the past 11 years, all of which follow a pattern that law-enforcement experts say raises red flags. Between 2006 and 2013, the former Trump campaign chairman purchased three multimillion-dollar New York City–area properties in Trump Tower, SoHo, and Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Each home was purchased entirely in cash through various limited liability companies, and later transferred to Manafort. 

Manafort used these properties as collateral in still more mysterious real estate dealings, including a series of transactions that happened on the same day Manafort left the Trump campaign.
