Related media - Breaking news Scottie Scheffler’s rise to the pinnacle of golf has been nothing short of meteoric. Once considered a talented but unremarkable player, the American has become a global sensation in 2024.

Fast forward to 2024, and a series of events catapulted him into the spotlight. A series of major victories, including a second Masters victory, cemented his dominance. But it was a bizarre arrest in Louisville that truly propelled him into the pop culture stratosphere. Fa...

McIlroy reflects on US Open disappointment, vows to learn and move forward

Related media - Recent news Rory McIlroy is using introspection and a change of scenery to process his heartbreaking U.S. Open finish. After missing putts on the final holes at Pinehurst, McIlroy took solitary walks through the busy streets of New York City. The walks served as a way to mentally unplug and gain perspective on the challenging tournament. A familiar pattern of frustration McIlroy described feeling like his "old self" for much of the final round, the version that was seeking major championship glory. He controlled the pace early, building a two-shot lead over Bryson DeChambeau entering the 15th hole. However, a bogey on the 15th hole, followed by a missed short putt on the 16th, destroyed his momentum. McIlroy acknowledged a sense of unease creeping in as he wa...

Viktor Orban Visits Xi Jinping in China After Meeting with Putin in Moscow

More news - Breaking news Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán visited Chinese leader Xi Jinping in Beijing on Monday, following his recent talks with Russian President Vladimir V. Putin in Moscow. China's state-run news agency, Xinhua, announced Orban's visit, saying Xi would engage in "in-depth discussions on issues of mutual concern" with him.

Hungary recently began its six-month rota...

Political changes in France after early elections

Related media - Breaking news After Sunday's snap legislative elections in France, the nation faces a deadlocked parliament and significant political uncertainty.

Contrary to expectations, the National Rally did not win a clear victory. A strategic move by centrists and leftists to form a "republican front" against the National Rally in the second round of voting proved effective. Candidates across France withdrew from three-way races to consolidate votes ag...

What warning signs made you leave your therapist? Share your story.

Related media - Recent news Many people who have undergone mental health therapy often highlight the positive aspects of it, such as developing better coping skills, building stronger relationships, and achieving a calmer mind. But what happens when a therapist fails to help or even causes harm? A psychologist might send warning signals to a client by yawning during sessions, consistently arriving late, or offering poor advice. Patients can report unethical behavior to a counselor’s state licensing board, but there isn’t always a recourse for those who feel a therapist is poorly trained, inexperienced, or just bad at their job. Currently, no federal agency is charged with regulating psychotherapy. Have you ever started therapy but dropped out because the treatment was ineffective or ...

French cyclist’s emotional stage for his family sparks debate during Tour de France

Related media - Recent news Julien Bernard’s Tour de France journey took an emotional turn on Friday, but it came at a surprising price. Riding on his home turf of Burgundy during the stage seven time trial, Bernard veered off the course for a quick embrace with his cheering wife and son. The touching moment, greeted with cheers from the crowd, earned Bernard a 200 Swiss franc ($223) fine from the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) for "unsporting conduct." The governing body's decision sparked a debate online, with some questioning how a show of family support could tarnish the image of the sport. “It was a dream moment,” Bernard said in a post-race interview. “Seeing the faces of my loved ones cheering me on, I had to share it with them for a second.” Social media e...
