Beatrice hailed as ‘kindest, most beautiful person’ by Edo on 1st wedding anniversary

Beatrice, 32, and Edoardo, 38, tied the knot at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor on July 17, 2020. It was originally scheduled for May 29 but delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and a private reception at Buckingham Palace did not take place as initially planned.

A year later and England is approaching July 19 Freedom Day, on which lockdown restrictions will be lifted across the country.

And Beatrice is pregnant with their first child, expected in autumn.

The baby will be the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild after the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s second child, Lilibet Diana, in June.

In the anniversary post, Edoardo wrote: “I can’t believe it has been one year.

“Every second of every day since has been so full of joy, happiness, laughter, and love.

“You are the kindest, loveliest, and most beautiful person in the world.

“Thank you my darling for every second.”

The multimillionaire property developer is son of alpine skier Alessandro “Alex” Mapelli-Mozzi, a British Olympian and member of an Italian noble family.

“Edo and Beatrice are made for each other, and their happiness and love for each other is there for all to see.

“They share an incredibly strong and united bond, their marriage will only strengthen what is already a wonderful relationship.”

Witness tried to chase down driver who hit and killed man: 'This person just doesn't care'

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A small memorial now sits on the side of C.E. King Parkway near Tidwell to remember the life that was taken on June 5.

Alex Cerda, 37, was a son, brother and uncle who loved to ride his bike. He was walking alongside his bike on the roadway when he was hit by an SUV, but the driver never stopped to check on him.

Now, the only eyewitness to the homicide is another driver who asked to remain anonymous.

“This is a human being,” the witness told ABC13.

She was driving into an early shift at work when she saw Cerda walking next to his bike, she slowed down to check on him. He waved her on, but within seconds she says another driver slammed into the pedestrian.

“All I hear (was) a big bump and when I look I saw his body fall under the SUV,” she said.

She says that instead of stopping, the SUV took off and her instincts took over.

“I need to get this person’s plate number, so I followed the vehicle,” she said. “Even honking my horn like, ‘Stop! Stop! You hit somebody.'”

The SUV driver got away and all she got was a picture showing tail lights in the distance.

“There’s people who just don’t care and that’s what happened with (Cerda), this person just doesn’t care,” she said.

Cerda died at the scene, but he was not alone. The eyewitness turned around, called 911, and stayed on the scene for hours.

Police said they are now looking for a dark-colored SUV, with heavy front-end damage. If you know anything about this fatal hit and run call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kawhi Leonard scored 28 points, Marcus Morris added 23 and the Los Angeles Clippers finally won at home, finishing off the Dallas Mavericks 126-111 on Sunday in Game 7 of the first-round playoff series.

Playing in front of a small but noisy mix of masked fans and cardboard cutouts, the Clippers did what neither team had been able to pull off in the first six games — win at home. It was the first time in NBA history the road team won the first six games of a playoff series.

Phil Mickelson becomes the oldest person to win

Phil Mickelson becomes the oldest person

Mickelson became the 10th player to win majors in three decades.

SAN DIEGO — San Diego native and pro Golfer Phil Mickelson has done it again and this time he set a new record. Mickelson hasn’t finished in the top 20 over the last nine months but on Sunday, he changed all of that with a spectacular PGA championship win.

Fans at a local driving range had some things to share about Mickelson’s huge accomplishment.

“It’s golf history. I got chills watching it,” said James Peagraf, who lives in San Diego.

Phil Mickelson also known as “Lefty” won his sixth major Sunday, becoming the oldest golfer to win a championship at 50 years old.

He finished strong, with a 1-over 73, and stayed away from any mistakes on the back nine to finish at 6-under 282 for the tournament.

“Phil’s one of my longtime favorite players. He’s a San Diego guy, got to root for him. It’s a huge win for him and San Diego,” Peagraf said.

It’s been more than two years since Mickelson last won and it’s been almost eight years since he won a major.

“So it’s very possible that this is the last tournament I ever win. Like if I’m being realistic. But it’s also very possible that I may have had a little bit of a breakthrough in some of my focus and maybe I go a little bit of a run, I don’t know. But the point is that’s there’s no reason why I or anybody else can’t do it at a later age. It just takes a little bit more work,” Mickelson said after his historic win.

Mickelson has had an incredible career and his fans in San Diego are just proud to say he’s a native.

“That’s where Phil grew up and it’s showing still out on the golf course and he still plays here locally all the time so it’s awesome,” said Victor Hourani, a Mickelson fan.

Today Mickelson became the 10th player to win majors in three decades.

NYC Mayor: Public Schools Will Be All in Person This Fall

New York City schools will be all in person this fall with no remote options, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Monday.

“We can’t have a full recovery without full-strength schools, everyone back, sitting in those classrooms, kids learning again,” de Blasio said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The roughly 1 million students who attend traditional public schools will be in their classrooms with some version of the coronavirus protocols that have been in place in the current academic year, including mask wearing and COVID-19 testing, de Blasio said.

“It’s time. It’s really time to go full strength now,” he said.

After closing schools in March 2020, New York City was one of the first large U.S. cities to reopen school buildings in the fall of that year, but the majority of parents chose online-only learning for their children.

Children and staff members who have been in physical schoolrooms have been randomly tested for COVID-19, and the city has reported very low rates of virus transmission in the schools.

The head of the union that represents city teachers said that while there is “no substitute for in-person instruction,” some students might still need a remote option.

“We still have concerns about the safety of a small number of students with extreme medical challenges,” said Michael Mulgrew, president of the United Federation of Teachers. “For that small group of students, a remote option may still be necessary.”

Asked how city education officials could overcome the fears of parents who have chosen online-only learning for their children, de Blasio, a Democrat, said that “a lot of information, a lot of communication” would be the answer.

He said parents would be invited to visit their children’s schools starting in June to get “reacclimated” to the idea of in-person school.

“Anyone who has a question or concern, come into your child’s school. See what’s going on, get the answers,” the mayor said.

The announcement comes a week after New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced that the state’s public schools would open for in-person learning only in the fall.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has clashed with de Blasio throughout the pandemic over who has the right to set COVID-19 rules in New York City schools, has not announced any statewide policy for the 2021-2022 school year.

De Blasio said city schools would be able to accommodate all students under current guidelines from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that call for 3 feet of separation, but he speculated that the standard may be relaxed before the city’s public schools open on Sept. 13.

“I think the CDC’ll be changing those rules quite a bit between now and September,” de Blasio said. “But right now in New York City, we could have every child three feet apart, we could make that work if we had to.”

3 kilo per person: Russians projected to eat record amount of ice cream in 2021

“These people will never be defeated,” UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill said during his visit to Moscow in the harsh winter of 1944, according to a popular legend.

The comment was allegedly made on the way to an official meeting with Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, when Churchill saw a group of Muscovites eating ice cream on a snowy street through his car window.

As the years went by, Russians’ love for the cooled dessert didn’t wither, but kept on growing, gradually becoming a passion.

According to the Russian Agricultural Bank, consumption of ice cream in Russia is set to increase to 3.1 kilograms per person, marking a growth of 1%, a record high over the past decade.

“The amount of ice cream consumption in Russia at the end of the current year will increase to 448,000 tons, or 3.1 kg per capita,” experts from the Center for Industry Expertise, affiliated with the lender, said.

Last year, Russians consumed 444,000 tons of the sweet cooling dessert, or three kilo per person, marking a 9% year-on-year growth.

“The surge in consumption would be a continuation of the gradual increase in demand over the past 10 years,” the analysts said, stressing that Russian ice cream producers could further ramp up exports taking into account the seasonal factor of ice cream consumption in Russia.

In 2020, Russian manufacturers reportedly produced 451,000 tons of ice cream, marking an 8% growth compared to the previous year. The experts expect the output to grow to 463,000 tons by the end of the current year.

Exports of Russian ice cream grew eightfold, from 3,000 tons in 2010 to 26,000 tons last year. Sales of Russian ice cream abroad are expected to increase 15% to a record 30,000 tons by the end of 2021. Kazakhstan, the biggest importer of Russian ice cream, boosted imports by 27%, to 11,200 tons in 2020.

The growth totaled 2% to $ 20 million in monetary terms. The US, the second major consumer of Russian ice cream, reportedly tripled imports, having purchased 3,800 tons, worth $ 9.2 million, in 2020.
