Piers Morgan opens up about reuniting for the FIRST time with Kate Garraway since GMB’s exit

Piers and Alex Beresford, an ITV weather reporter, clashed back in March after Meghan Markle’s remarks in an interview with Oprah. This led to him running off the set.

According to the Duchess, her mental state had been affected by being a part of the royal family. The GMB host denied this claim and said that he didn’t believe her.

ITV issued a statement hours later confirming that the presenter had resigned from the show, after having presented it for six years with Susanna Reid.

Piers’ remarks led to Ofcom receiving a record 58,000 complaints. The regulator dismissed the complaint, ruling that Piers, the ex-newspaper editor, did not violate their code of conduct by his comments regarding the Suits actress.

Alex asked me what was wrong, and I couldn’t answer.

She said that she felt uncomfortable and went up to the top of her bed. “I didn’t feel right,” she explained, even though she tried other relaxation techniques.

He said to me, “I believe you should call an ambulance. I don’t understand what’s happening.”

However, the paramedic discovered exactly what had gone wrong when he checked Laura.

The TV star, who was shocked when asked if she had ever suffered from panic attacks, replied, “No. You are talking about? “What are you talking about?” She recalled.

“I was ashamed of what they did to me!”

Laura was left wondering what she did to let paramedics like this get to her.

She admitted that she felt stupid for doing so.

Version 13.0.0 of the Nintendo Switch firmware was released

The Nintendo Switch has not received a firmware upgrade in a few months, while the last major update for this console was 5 months ago. The summer update was mostly small, with bug fixes and improvements to stability.

Tonight, this pattern is changing. Nintendo released an updated firmware for the Nintendo Switch. After you have updated, your console will be running version 13.0.0. This update is huge. It adds Bluetooth audio support, and allows you to toggle a few options regarding the Switch’s internet connectivity. Below are the patch notes.

  • For audio output, Bluetooth-connected headphones, earbuds and speakers can be paired with the Nintendo Switch family of systems.

    • Bluetooth microphones cannot be used.
    • Bluetooth audio can connect up to 2 compatible wireless controllers to the system.
    • While Bluetooth audio is not active, it cannot be used.
    • There may be some delay depending on which Bluetooth device you are using.

Activision Blizzard is accused of union busting and worker intimidation in a new lawsuit

Employees have brought a new suit against Activision Blizzard, claiming that the company used “coercive techniques” to stop organisational efforts to improve work conditions. This is continuing legal action from the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing. The lawsuit alleges sexual harassment, discrimination and a “fratboy” culture at Blizzard.

After the first Activision Blizzard filing, more than 2000 employees signed a petition calling the initial response of the company to the lawsuit “abhorrent” and “insulting”. The subsequent strike action saw over 500 workers leave and hundreds more take part virtually all around the globe in an attempt to improve work conditions.

The new lawsuit was filed by the ABetterABK worker group in association with the Communications Workers of America to the National Labor Review Board. It alleges Activision Blizzard “engaged and is engaged in unfair labor practices” within the past six months in violation of the National Labor Relations Act.

The CWA released a press statement announcing that the legal action was being taken. “Activision Blizzard management uses coercive techniques to try to stop its employees exercising their right to stand together, demand a more equitable and sustainable workplace. Federal labor law protects workers’ rights to organize and seek a safe work environment.

Activision Blizzard “threatened” employees by telling them they couldn’t talk or communicate about their wages, hours or working conditions. It also stated that it has “maintained a broad social media policy and has enforced this policy against employees who engage in protected concerted activities” (i.e. Worker activity that is protected by federal law, has “treated and disciplined employees for protected concerted activities”, engaged in surveillance of employees involved in protected concerted action, and interrogated employees about protected concerted behavior.

This “protected concerted action” included petitioning Activision Blizzard for better working conditions. ABetterABK has continued to make four demands. These include an end to the use of forced arbitration in employment contracts, inclusive recruitment and hiring practices and increased transparency in pay through compensation metrics. ABK also wants an independent audit to review ABK’s policies and practices.

Activision Blizzard met this demand by requesting a third party audit of ABK policies and practices. An important criticism of Activision Blizzard’s choice for WilmerHale has been that it chose WilmerHale as a company because of its reputation for union-busting.

Activision Blizzard is not the only one to be accused of having acted in bad faith when responding to initial claims made by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing. Recently the DFEH updated their lawsuit. It claimed Activision Blizzard’s HR department had destroyed documents related to internal investigations and staff complaints – an allegation that Call of Duty’s publisher called “not true”.

“F*** off!” Jeremy Clarkson fumes while a’selfish person’ circles around the family home

Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/latest/jeremy-clarkson” target=”_blank”>Jeremy Clarkson, 61, is no stranger to making his opinions known when it comes to things that annoy him. He raged at the plane that flew over his farm, and now the broadcaster is speaking out.

Jeremy lives in Oxfordshire where he manages the Diddly Squat Farm.

The Grand Tour presenteder, who also helmed his television program earlier in the year, made this location very popular.

Clarkson’s Farm was a name Jeremy used to use when he had to manage a farm.

The star appears to have another issue, as he explained to his 7.5million followers.

Clarkson’s Farm’s star is often annoyed by planes that fly over his land.

He regularly uploads photos of people flying above the airspace over his house to his Instagram.

He shared his two “w *****”” and one “c*** ending” in July.

Current UK aviation regulations allow aircraft to fly over 1000 ft within a constructed area, or 500 ft away from structures, people, vessels, and vehicles.

You can also file complaints about unsafe or dangerous drone flying.

Jeremy also met with the locals to discuss his plans for the farm.

He told ITV News that he was about to enter the meeting at the local gathering last week.

Jeremy said, “Someone gave me the finger on my way in.”

Farmers Weekly was informed by a local that the meeting had been extremely positive after it concluded.

An attendee who did not want to be identified said that Clarkson had explained to him that he would no longer take over the abandoned lambing shed, and that he wanted it to turn into a restaurant or cafe.

Rural folk are not fond of change but his promise to assist the village in its functions was very well received.

He did an admirable job by trying to organize the meeting. However, he should have started it earlier.

He was subject to criticism from some, but Jeremy Clarkson creates employment. “He’s doing great things.”
