The intriguing tale of a trailblazing, women’s rights activist who married the youngest son and heir to a vast family fortune may be of great interest to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Not only does the relationship between Katharine and Stanley McCormick draw the odd parallel with their own, but the royal couple’s new Santa Barbara home is built on what was once McCormick family land. The fabled 87-acre estate in Montecito, California, boasts a fascinating history - the place where Mr McCormick was confined for 40 years due to mental illness, while a string of eminent psychiatrists were employed in a desperate, but ultimately fruitless, bid to cure him. The 19th century family saga is documented in the 1998 novel, Riven Rock, by American author TC Boyle, which once featured in an episode of The Sopranos.

So what do you do? You just stand there longer or you take a shower longer? Because my hair - I don't know about you, but it has to be perfect. Perfect.” In December he also told reporters the Environmental Protection Agency would be "looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms."

Important news coverage or voyeurism disguised as journalism? It's complicated.
As of August, US farmers have reported slashing the planted acreage of the crop by 67%, from 137,000 acres in 2019 to 45,000 acres, according to newly released data from the US Department of Agriculture. “We saw CBD production explode in 2019,” says Erica Stark, the executive director of the National Hemp Association, which represents hemp farmers, processors, researchers, and manufacturers. “Prices dropped dramatically from, say an average of $35 a pound, down to $10 or less,” says Stark, adding that over-saturation is to blame, along with an ever-changing regulatory framework.
