President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday, June 20, addressing the practice of separating migrant families arriving at the U.S. border, which has been the subject of huge media attention.

The Senate on Wednesday rejected billions in spending cuts proposed by the Trump administration as two Republicans joined all Democrats in voting "no."

There are lots of ways to celebrate the World Cup. You could wear a festive jersey. You could take a day off to watch some games. You could paint your face or even fly to Russia to attend in person. Or, according to a new ad from Burger King, you could allow yourself to get impregnated by a World Cup soccer star. In a social media post, Burger King's Russia team offered 3 million rubles (about $47,000) and a lifetime supply of Whoppers to "women who get pregnant from world football stars." It's all part of an effort, it said, to inherit "the best football genes."

Cooper Hefner has his father's translucent skin and mischievous smile, which stretches across his face like a flat line. He's lankier but has the same eyes, impenetrable bits of brown seaglass below that high forehead. "He looks just like his father," marvels a woman catching a glimpse in a dark nightclub. True, if you can imagine Hugh Hefner without the satin pajamas and harem of spray-tanned blondes.
