No Deposit Bingo: Is it legal in the UK in 2021?

No Deposit Bingo, a term that refers to the free bingo credits that a player receives after signing up for a new account on a bingo platform such as Barbadosbingo.com and before making a deposit. These bingo credits can later be used to access the free bingo games on that particular platform.

Despite their claims otherwise the Taliban aren’t actually treating women and girls with fairness

Contrary to the reported softer image they're seeking to portray to the world the Taliban has allegedly been anything but. The Taliban initially claimed that women and girls would be able to return to class and their posts as teachers although that lasted about a week. This particular bit of information comes just days after it was announced that women would not be allowed to return to work either with men replacing them in most departments and buildings nationwide. As the weekend kicked off, Taliban insurgents announced that only boys could return to school and their teaching posts while females could not. The move in fact makes Afghanistan once again the only country on earth to have such a mandate barring females from school. It has made the country a battleground yet again f...

Taco Bell is launching a taco subscription service

That headline isn’t a joke or something out of Family Guy. According to Yum Brands, the owners of Taco Bell, the fast food chain is launching what will become their first subscription service of sorts for tacos. After a quick internet search, we found that the temporary subscription service is available until 24 November in the United States and users must use the app to find it.

A Florida woman has admitted to threatening to assassinate Vice President Kamala Harris

A truly shocking story out of Miami has Washingon on alert for any potential further threats to the White House. According to local reports, a Miami nurse is facing some pretty hefty federal charges after an alleged manifesto threat to assassinate VP Kamala Harris landed in the hands of authorities who then managed to confirm she had actually intended to attempt such. The woman according to court papers has been identified as Niviane Petit Phelps, 39.

She faces up to 6 different federal charges and up to 5 years or more in federal prison. DOJ officials claimed in their own documents that the woman then claimed follo...

Angelina Jolie discloses she was also a victim of Harvey Weinstein ‘s vicious sex abuse in Hollywood

Hollywood siren Angelina Jolie is making bombshell waves in a new interview with the Guardian not because of a movie but because of the sensational claims that followed. According to the interview, the American actress has revealed for the first time that she was also a victim of Harvey Weinstein 's abuse when she was roughly 21 years old. But like most good things even Angelina Jolie 's marriage to Brad Pitt couldn't stand the test of time. In 2016, the couple filed for divorce after what she says were several years of fearing for her safety; abuse by Pitt, and then of course what happened early on in life (she even says she told Pitt who didn't seem to care.) Harvey Weinstein himself has since responded to the claims to the shock of nobody. In a statement picked up by TMZ, Weins...

CVS is hiring their own surveillance vans and “squad teams” to fend off soaring retail crime

In a twist that sounds like something straight out of a movie on FX, American retailer CVS has taken a dramatic new turn in an effort to fend off soaring retail theft threat(s). According to reports (we can't link to the WSJ here because we don't support them), the chain is moving into the private security arena of sorts amid reports that it is using a 13-person private team to stop shoplifting. The chain apparently employs the militia like squad who is also armed with equally odd high-tech telescopes. Initially, the chain reportedly fought internal backlash over the sudden acquisition of such security considering private citizens generally shouldn't be arresting people. In places like San Francisco, where petty theft is essentially legal, it has become increasingly hard for ...

Mike Richards has been fired from Jeopardy (a 2nd time)

That in part is because he wasn't just a host but rather also an executive producer. Just a short time after it was announced that the bewildered T.V almost host would fill in on Jeopardy, er, everything has quite literally come crashing down. According to reports, the fallout from Richards' scandal and his previous comments surrounding women and Jewish people had simply gone too far. CNN reports of an email that was delivered to people on set which informed them that the show could not endure the lasting backlash currently following Richards from his previous departure. It appears a Sony executive will temporarily take his place.
