Egypt Independent: Living-Main news en Adult film actress accuses Trump of unwanted sexual advances <img src="" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-media_thumbnail" width="152" height="114" /><div>An adult film actress on Saturday became the latest woman to accuse Donald Trump of unwanted sexual advances, saying the Republican presidential candidate offered her $10,000 to come to his hotel room alone.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><div>Jessica Drake is one of at least 11 women to have alleged that the real estate billionaire groped them, made inappropriate remarks or forcibly kissed them.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><div>Speaking during a Los Angeles news conference accompanied by the high-profile discrimination lawyer Gloria Allred, Drake said she met Trump at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, California, in 2006.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>&ldquo;He flirted with me and invited me to walk along the golf course with him,&rdquo; she said, adding that he asked her to his hotel room. She went along with two other women, Drake said.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Wearing pajamas when they entered, Trump &ldquo;grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission.&rdquo;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>He also asked what it was like to film pornography, Drake said.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>After she returned to her room, Drake said, Trump called her asking her to return to his suite and invited her to a party.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>&ldquo;What do you want? How much?&rdquo; she said Trump asked her.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>After she declined, Drake said, she received another call either from Trump or another man offering $10,000 and use of Trump&rsquo;s private plane to fly home to Los Angeles if she were to accept.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>During Saturday&rsquo;s news conference, Allred &mdash; who also represents two other women who accuse Trump of unwanted sexual advances &mdash; showed a photograph of Trump and Drake at the golf tournament.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><div>Trump&rsquo;s campaign denied the Drake&rsquo;s allegations.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>&ldquo;This story is totally false and ridiculous,&rdquo; it said in a statement. &ldquo;Mr Trump does not know this person, does not remember this person and would have no interest in ever knowing her.&rdquo;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>&ldquo;This is just another attempt by the Clinton campaign to defame a candidate who just today is number one in three different polls,&rdquo; it added of Trump&rsquo;s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Trump has seen his campaign spiral downward in recent weeks ahead of the November 8 election after a number of women made allegations that he sexually assaulted them &mdash; claims he again insisted on Saturday were false.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>He also threatened to take legal action against all the &ldquo;liars&rdquo; that have claimed to be victims of his sexual assaults.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>&ldquo;The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over,&rdquo; he said during a campaign rally.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The allegations have come on the heels of the release of a 2005 video in which Trump is heard making lewd comments about women to a television talk show host, saying his fame entitles him to grope women.</div><div>&nbsp;</div></div></div></div><p>&nbsp;</p> Sun, 23 Oct 2016 13:45:00 +0000 AFP 2473703 at sites/default/files/photo/2016/10/23/505446/jessica_drake_r_who_works_for_an_adult_film_company_speaks_beside_attorney_gloria_allred_l_about_allegations_of_sexual_misconduct_against_trump_during_a_press_conference_in_los_angeles_california.jpg ‘Global Sleep Crisis’ Study Reveals Why We’re Not Getting Enough Sleep <img src="" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-media_thumbnail" width="152" height="114" /><div><p>Social pressures are forcing people to cut back on their sleep, contributing to a &ldquo;global sleep crisis,&rdquo; according to a new study based on research collected through a smartphone app.</p></div><div><p>It enabled scientists from the University of Michigan to track sleep patterns around the world &mdash; gathering data about how age, gender and the amount of natural light to which people are exposed affect sleep patterns in 100 countries &mdash; and better understand how cultural pressures can override biological rhythms.</p></div><div><p>&ldquo;The effects of society on sleep remain largely unquantified,&rdquo; says the study published Friday in the journal Science Advances.</p></div><div><div data-beacon="{&quot;p&quot;:{&quot;mnid&quot;:&quot;ad&quot;,&quot;lnid&quot;:&quot;mobileweb_transporter_mid&quot;}}"><div id="adsDiv9">&nbsp;</div></div><p>&ldquo;We find that social pressures weaken and/or conceal biological drives in the evening, leading individuals to delay their bedtime and shorten their sleep.&rdquo;</p></div><div><p>Lack of sleep is mostly affected by the time people go to bed, the study found.</p></div><div><p>Middle-aged men get the least amount of sleep, less than the recommended seven to eight hours.</p></div><div><p>And age is the main factor determining amount of sleep.</p></div><div><p>The research is based on data collected through the free smartphone app Entrain, launched in 2014 to help users fight jetlag.</p></div><div><p>Scientists asked some 6,000 people 15 and older to send anonymous data about sleep, wake-up and lighting environment, enabling the scientists to obtain a large amount of data about sleep patterns worldwide.</p></div><div><p>The app also asks users to input information about their ages, gender, countries and time zones.</p></div><div><p>Sleep is driven by an internal &ldquo;circadian&rdquo; clock, a cluster of 20,000 nerve cells the size of a grain of rice located behind the eyes, and adjusted according to the amount of light captured, especially natural light.</p></div><div><p>The average amount of sleep in the world varies from a minimum of seven hours 24 minutes in Singapore and Japan to a maximum of eight hours 12 minutes in the Netherlands, the study found.</p></div><div><p>Although a difference of 48 minutes may seem inconsequential, a lack of sleep for half an hour can have significant effects on cognitive function and health, the researchers said.</p></div><div><p>People who need sleep suffer a reduction in their cognitive abilities without really being conscious of it, the new study says.</p></div><div><p>&ldquo;Impaired sleep presents an immediate and pressing threat to human health,&rdquo; it says.</p></div><div><p>A recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found one in three American adults is not sleeping the recommended minimum of seven hours.</p></div><div><p>Chronic lack of sleep increases the risk of obesity, diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease, according to the CDC.</p></div><p>&nbsp;</p><div><p>The new study also found that women sleep 30 minutes longer than men on average by going to bed earlier and rising later, and that people exposed longer to natural light every day often go to bed earlier.</p></div><p>&nbsp;</p> Fri, 21 Oct 2016 10:27:00 +0000 AFP 2473651 at sites/default/files/photo/2015/09/10/43/screen_shot_2015-09-10_at_4.27.23_pm.png Five travel hacks the airlines don't want you to know about <img src="" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-media_thumbnail" width="152" height="114" /><div>Frequent fliers know that in the competitive world of modern airlines, it takes a skilled player to spot the good deals among the gimmicks.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In this month&#39;s episode of Business Traveller, we meet with bloggers and aviation insiders who&#39;ve learned how to play the often risky game of travel hacking, uncovering the loopholes the airlines don&#39;t want them to find.</div><div>In this game, the rewards can be great -- but the stakes are high.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>1. Hidden City Ticketing</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>What is it?</strong> Say you want to fly from New York to Los Angeles, but a ticket from New York to San Diego via Los Angeles is much cheaper.</div><div>The daring traveler books the San Diego ticket, but only completes the Los Angeles leg of the trip.</div><div>The practice is called &quot;hidden city ticketing&quot; and while it&#39;s not a new phenomenon, software engineer Aktarer Zaman has created a search engine called Skiplagged specifically to find opportunities for &quot;hidden city&quot; trips.</div><div>It&#39;s so unpopular with the aviation industry, in 2014 United Airlines sued Zaman -- but the case was dropped.</div><div>Zaman remains unfazed.</div><div>&quot;This is the inevitable,&quot; he tells CNN. &quot;Consumers are going to try to figure out the best way to do what they want.&quot;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>The catch: </strong>On a practical level, you have to travel hand luggage only, as checked-in baggage will go all the way to the final destination.</div><div>Much more seriously, skipping out portions of your itinerary violates fare rules on many airlines.</div><div>Frequent flier privileges could be revoked and miles confiscated.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>2. Manufactured Spending</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>What is it?</strong> Blogger Alex Bachuwa has developed a method of earning air miles without actually flying them.</div><div>&quot;I just apply for a lot of credit cards and I get a lot of points, and I use those points to go wherever I want to go.</div><div>&quot;The banks have promotions on new products all the time. They offer 50,000, 100,000, 150,000 points promotions.</div><div>&quot;They have a minimum amount you have to spend and once you spend that amount, the points go on your account and it&#39;s time to start looking for flights.&quot;</div><div>But as those minimum spends are far higher than the average person&#39;s daily expenses, Bachuwa racks in the points through &quot;manufactured spending.&quot;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>How does it work? First get a credit card with rewards. Then buy a gift card and use the gift card to purchase a money order. You deposit the money order into your bank account and then use it to pay off the credit card.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>The catch? </strong>&quot;This is a frowned-upon business,&quot; says Bachuwa. &quot;It&#39;s a way to spend without spending. Certain credit card companies now have in their terms and conditions, &#39;Thou shalt not manufacture spend.&#39;&quot;</div><div>Not to mention that it&#39;s seriously risky: Slip up in your calculations and you could get caught in spiraling debts.</div><div>Bachuwa remains confident in his lifestyle choice and reveals his secrets on his blog &quot;The Points of Life.&quot;</div><div>&quot;Have you seen the places I&#39;ve been and how I&#39;ve flown? Of course it&#39;s worth it!&#39;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>3. Frequent Travel University</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>What is it?</strong> US-based Frequent Traveler University organizes regular seminars to teach would-be travel hackers the latest tips, tricks and methods that they say will help their students travel cheaper, better and more creatively.</div><div>&quot;We&#39;re teaching people how to redeem those miles for trips that can cost $20,000 one way, how to utilize that elite status,&quot; says FTU&#39;s James Larounis, adding that they offer expert tips on airline alliances and Fifth Freedom routes -- flights where an airline from one country has the right to operate between two other countries and which are often heavily discounted.</div><div>Some of the classes are so secret and the information so prized that they wouldn&#39;t let our cameras in to film.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>The catch: </strong>Banks and airlines get wise to the hackers&#39; tricks and then promptly shut them down.</div><div>&quot;That&#39;s why we host so many courses a year, because of this changing information,&quot; says Larounis. &quot;We&#39;ve got repeat customers, year after year, session after session.&quot;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>4. Play your cards right</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>What is it?</strong> Stefan Krasowski, who blogs at RapidTravelChai, had these four tips to give us on the art of credit card shuffling.</div><div>1.) &quot;First, get as many cards as the banks will give you. Your credit scores will probably improve, if you manage them correctly.</div><div>2.) &quot;Get a hotel credit card. Many of those credit cards give you elite status with that hotel. Then you can turn around, go to other hotel chains and say, &#39;I have the status, will you match me?&#39;</div><div>3.) &quot;Get a credit card, usually a premium card, such as an Amex Platinum, a Citi Prestige, that has worldwide airport lounge access.</div><div>4.) &quot;Scale all this with your family members. If you&#39;re traveling with a spouse or family member, each get hotel cards and then you&#39;ll get double the benefits.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>The catch:</strong> Mismanage your cards or drop behind on your payments and you&#39;ll be left holding a losing hand.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>5. Bid in a live auction</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>What is it? </strong>Open auctions for airline seats have been around for a while, but for a real fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants experience, at Seatboost the bidding for the last remaining first-class seats begins just 90 minutes before takeoff.</div><div>It&#39;s teamed up with Virgin America to auction off any free available premium seats on certain routes -- but getting an airline to buy into the idea took some convincing.</div><div>That&#39;s because airlines don&#39;t want customers to expect that they&#39;ll win in the auction, because then the customers might be reluctant to buy those premium seats beforehand.</div><div>&quot;We are more positioned for a flier or guest who wants to give themselves a treat. If you&#39;re used to flying first class, you&#39;re not going to leave it to chance,&quot; says Seatboost CEO Kevin Stamler.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>The catch:</strong> Bid too high and you might win the upgrade but pay over the odds for your seat.</div><div>Bid too low and you miss out on your upgrade and remain stuck in economy.</div> Wed, 19 Oct 2016 12:12:00 +0000 CNN 2473617 at sites/default/files/photo/2014/11/30/499612/new_lufthansa_pilots.jpg 100 books for a lifetime of cooking and drinking <img src="" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-media_thumbnail" width="152" height="114" /><p>Chef Traci Des Jardins&#39; most treasured cookbook is a battle-worn copy of &quot;The Joy of Cooking.&quot;<br /><br />San Francisco-based Des Jardins started cooking and baking with her mother by the time she was 3, and her mother rebound her original copy and gave it to her for Christmas a few years ago.<br /><br />&quot;It&#39;s quite precious,&quot; she told CNN.<br /><br />&quot;I have always used it to this day because of the breadth of information in it. You can find a reference to so many basic cooking time, temperatures, methods and products in it.&quot;<br /><br />As Amazon releases its &quot;100 books for a Lifetime of Eating and Drinking,&quot; there are many works that food professionals and everyday lovers of food will recognize on the list, including &quot;The Joy of Cooking,&quot; &quot;The Fannie Farmer Cookbook&quot; and &quot;Mastering the Art of French Cooking.&quot;<br /><br />And there are those niche books, such as &quot;The Drunken Botanist,&quot; &quot;Jerusalem&quot; and &quot;The Slanted Door: Modern Vietnamese Food,&quot; which can open one&#39;s eyes and taste buds to new flavors and communities.<br /><br />&quot;The idea was to come up with a list that would be inspirational, educational, have a lot of variety and be a lot of fun,&quot; said Seira Wilson, Amazon&#39;s senior books editor. &quot;If you had one bookshelf of cookbooks for your whole life, I would want this to be the list.&quot;<br /><br />Inspired by the list, CNN asked food professionals for their favorite food books, the ones that have been essential to their foodie souls.<br /><br />For some, it&#39;s the book that introduced them to food, while for others it&#39;s the technique they picked up or stories within the cookbooks that touched their hearts. (Some made the Amazon list, and some did not.)<br /><br /><strong>Favorites of the foodies</strong><br /><br />Wilson&#39;s pick is Tyler Florence&#39;s &quot;Real Kitchen.&quot; &quot;I spent 30 bucks on it over a decade ago and I still have it.&quot;<br /><br />&quot;It&#39;s the first cookbook I ever bought, and I still make his lasagna,&quot; she said. &quot;It made me realize I could try a lot of things and some are going to work and some are not, but it&#39;s still more fun than making the same things over and over.&quot;<br /><br />New Orleans-born and bred cooking instructor, author and radio host Poppy Tooker feels fortunate that she took &quot;Making of A Cook&quot; author Madeleine Kamman&#39;s professional cooking course in the 1980s. The French-born Kamman used her own book as the text, and it&#39;s since been updated.<br /><br />&quot;There isn&#39;t a food chemistry question, correct cooking, baking or roasting temperature that isn&#39;t contained within the 500+ pages of this book, along with a lot of food history as well,&quot; Tooker says. &quot;It is the single book that I consistently reach for when I&#39;m not sure of some classic recipe or technique.&quot;<br /><br />&quot;The Lee Bros. Southern Cookbook: Stories And Recipes For Southerners And Would-Be Southerners,&quot; by Matt Lee and Ted Lee, had a profound impact on Kat Kinsman, Extra Crispy&#39;s senior food and drinks editor and former managing editor at CNN&#39;s Eatocracy.<br /><br />&quot;I grew up in northern Kentucky with a serious regional identity crisis. Even lifelong residents can&#39;t really tell you if it&#39;s the South, Midwest, North -- it&#39;s its own place,&quot; said Kinsman, whose book &quot;Hi, Anxiety,&quot; will be published in November. &quot;But outsiders don&#39;t know that, and they expect you to be able to whip out some biscuits, have an appreciation for butter beans and watermelon pickles and whatnot. And to compound matters, I married into a Southern family.&quot;<br /><br />The answer, she said, was the Lee brothers&#39; book. &quot;From it, I learned to pickle, can, preserve, braise collards, make corncob wine, even fry chicken, like everyone assumes Kentuckians do on a nightly basis. It didn&#39;t just fill the gaps in my culinary knowledge, it gave me a whole new key to play in.&quot;<br /><br />The Edna Lewis classic, &quot;The Taste of County Cooking,&quot; is Davia Nelson&#39;s pick. Nelson is one of the Kitchen Sisters, which produces the duPont-Columbia University Award-winning series, &quot;Hidden Kitchens&quot; and other radio programs.<br /><br />An African-American chef, Lewis wrote of her life growing up in Freetown, Virginia, a post-slavery community of freed slaves, sharing how her community was organized around the farm, food and the seasons, said Nelson, who later recorded an oral history with Lewis.<br /><br />Lewis, who led kitchens in Manhattan and Brooklyn, &quot;was one of the first people who told me the story behind food and community, prompting me and my fellow Kitchen Sister, radio producer Nikki Silva, to start asking people to tell us about their hidden kitchens and who glues your community together through food,&quot; said Nelson. &quot;She opened a door for me.&quot;<br /><br />Don&#39;t have a favorite cookbook or foodie memoir yet?
