With "I believe that we will win!" American soccer fans finally have a World Cup chant that doesn't just involve shouting their country's name. In terms of creativity, though, it's a notch below Argentina's elaborate sing-alongs or even the boisterous chants of the English. While most fans simply spell out the name of their country, from Chile's "Chi-chi-chi Le-le-le" to Germany's "Deutschland, Deutschland," some have developed more creative chants that celebrate their own teams while poking fun at their opponents.
Since late last year, the Obama administration has been moving in the direction of a warmer relationship between the United States and Cuba after an embargo lasting 50 years. On Tuesday, House Republicans moved to cool down that process. Republicans unveiled legislation by Mario Diaz-Balart, a Cuban-American from Florida, that would block new flights and cruise ship travel to the country. Diaz-Balart's move comes in response to new rules issued by the administration in January that would significantly ease travel restrictions to Cuba and permit regularly scheduled flights for the first time. Since 1996, the number of U.S. respondents who view Cuba favorably has increased from 10% to 46%
Summer just can't come soon enough! Maria Menounos decided to travel long distance for a mini vacation with boyfriend Keven Undergaro. After arriving in Greece, the pair immediately hit the ocean blue water where the E! star showed off her impressive bikini body. Yes, we're so jealous right about now. What gets us even more envious is the fact that the brunette beauty scored an invite to the White House Correspondents' Dinner just two days earlier. Wearing a Stella McCartney floor-length gown, Menounos was able to sit alongside Jane Seymour, Michelle Trachtenberg and a pregnant Naya Rivera at the USA Today table.
There is one thing scarier than the sight of an out of control riot. And that sight is your pissed off mother coming toward you to give you a piece of her mind. A video from the Baltimore protests of a mother physically dragging her son out of a riot has gone viral since emerging on Monday night and is being shared with the hashtag #MomoftheYear.
House Transportation Chairman Bill Shuster said Tuesday morning that he never thought of recusing himself from his panel’s work on a massive aviation overhaul, despite his recently disclosed romantic relationship with a top airline industry lobbyist. Shuster said in response to a question from reporter Fawn Johnson, “I've been very transparent...I think I've gone above and beyond what the rules require, what the law requires, to make sure that we’re doing things appropriately.” The Pennsylvania representative has blamed the disclosure on the “liberal media.” He left the event without fielding further questions on the matter. Two weeks ago POLITICO reported that he and Shelley Rubino, a top lobbyist for Airlines for America, had dated privately since last summer without disclosing the relationship, even as his committee is in middle of negotiating a massive overhaul of the Federal Aviation Administration.
Ukraine's leader warned on Tuesday that a war with pro-Russian separatists could still break out again as its military said the rebels had greatly stepped up attacks and widened the area of their operations despite a ceasefire. A military spokesman said one Ukrainian serviceman had been killed -- the fourth fatality among the Ukrainian armed forces in four successive days -- and 14 others wounded in a surge in violence at flashpoints in Ukraine's east and south-east. The latest violence has revived concerns that a peace deal, brokered in Minsk, Belarus, by the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France, in February could collapse. Both sides accuse each other of violations.
