An expectant father angered social media after storming out of the unborn baby’s reveal party upon learning the child’s gender. “She’s been grouchy her whole pregnancy so her sister offered to plan her a gender reveal party,” the man began, more or less already on the wrong foot. “The plan was that all the food and decorations would be blue or pink and in the end we’d get one of those special sparklers that would light up in either blue or pink to reveal the gender,” he continued.

U.S. President Donald Trump abruptly reversed course on TikTok on Monday... Just a few days after he said he was planning on banning the China-owned video app in the U.S, Trump on Monday said the U.S. government should get a "substantial" cut of the sales price of the U.S. operations of the company. He warned he will ban the service in the United States on September 15 without a sale. TikTok is valued at about $50 billion, according to some investors. TRUMP: "I did say that if you buy it, whatever the price is that goes to whoever owns it, because I guess it's China essentially … I said a very substantial portion of that price is going to have to come into the Treasury of the United States because we're making it possible for this deal to happen." It was not clear how the U.S. government would receive part of the purchase price. Trump's comments confirmed a Reuters report Sunday that he had agreed to give China's ByteDance 45 days to negotiate a sale of popular short-video app TikTok to Microsoft. U.S. officials have said TikTok poses a national security risk because of the personal data it handles.

The received wisdom two-and-a-half years ago – inside Old Trafford, not just outside – was that if Alexis Sanchez is available, you sign him.It was not entirely wrong, either.
