  • Vladimir Putin's Alleged Girlfriend Alina Kabaeva Pregnant? Ex-Gymnast's Dress, Appearance At Event Spark Rumors

    Alina Kabaeva, a former gymnast and alleged girlfriend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, sparked renewed pregnancy rumors in domestic and social media outlets this week when she wore a “billowy” dress to a youth gymnastic event, a report said Thursday. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied persistent speculation that Putin and Kabaeva are in a relationship, as well as rumors the pair have children together. “Comments on Russian social media point out that 32-year-old Alina Kabaeva, the former champion gymnast-turned-politician, appears to have gained a few pounds,” CNN reporter Matthew Chance said. Shortly after the youth gymnastic event, which was attended by Russian veterans of World War II, local media outlets suggested Kabaeva looked “tired,” “overweight” and “older,” the New York Post reported.

  • Bobbi Kristina Brown Update: She Was ‘Deathly Afraid’ Of Bathtubs, Friend Says

    Bobbi Kristina Brown remained unconscious Friday in a hospital after she was discovered in a bathtub three months ago -- and the circumstances around her getting there have become increasingly murky. Authorities say they consider it an accident, and while no foul play is suspected, Brown's friend Debra Reis Brooks had something shocking to add to the dialogue: Brown was “deathly afraid” of bathtubs and it was strange for her to randomly take a bath. After Brown’s mother, pop legend Whitney Houston, accidentally drowned in a bathtub in February 2012 at the Beverly Hilton hotel, Brown was petrified of baths, Brooks told Radar Online in an exclusive interview Friday.

  • The world's biggest oil exporter has quietly seized a market milestone from the U.S.

    As the United States raced over the past five years toward becoming a global petroleum powerhouse, the world’s biggest oil exporter Saudi Arabia quietly seized a market milestone from America: the largest source of peak summer demand. From June through August, when temperatures in Riyadh routinely rise above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius), Saudi Arabia diverts as much as a tenth of its crude output to fuel power plants that run full tilt to meet surging demand from air conditioners. At the height of the U.S. energy boom, Texas landowner John Baen received about US$100,000 a month in royalty payments from companies producing oil and natural gas on his property. The result is that Saudi Arabia’s winter-to-summer “swing” in oil consumption has eclipsed that of the United States, where gasoline consumption jumps by as much as 10 per cent every summer as millions of families take advantage of school holidays and warm weather to embark on the classic American road trip.

  • Russia faces punishment for lack of respect to Canada

    By Dmitriy Rogovitskiy MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia will be sanctioned after their players showed a lack of respect to Canada following a 6-1 loss in the final of the world championships in Prague, the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) said on Monday. Most of Russia's players left the ice straight after Sunday's defeat and headed for the dressing rooms without waiting for the national anthem of Canada to be played, which goes against the etiquette of the sport. "Once we arrive back home after the world championships we will look into this question and we will get in touch with those in charge at the Russian Ice Hockey Federation," IIHF president Rene Fasel said in the statement to the TASS news agency.
