The family of former marine Willy Joseph Cancel, 22, of Orange County, New York, confirmed that the husband and father of a seven-month-old son (center with his wife, right with his son, and left) had died in the Ukraine on Monday. Cancel's mother, Rebecca Cabrera, said her son was working for a private military contracting company when he agreed to take up a job to fight in the Ukraine following Russia's invasion in February. 'He wanted to go over because he believed in what Ukraine was fighting for, and he wanted to be a part of it to contain it there so it didn't come here, and that maybe our American soldiers wouldn't have to be involved in it,' Cabrera said. She added that those fighting alongside Cancel were not able to retrieve his body during the conflict that killed him. 'They haven't found his body,' she said. 'They are trying, the men that were with him, but it was either grab his body or get killed, but we would love for him to come back to us.'
Johnny Depp's bodyguard says he noticed 'scratches and swelling' on the actor's face during his HONEYMOON and watched him go from 'happy' and 'lovey-dovey' to 'quiet' as Amber Heard became more 'demanding' and 'feisty'
Johnny Depp's bodyguard (bottom) has described noticing injuries and marks on the actor's face as his marriage to Amber Heard got increasingly more volatile. Malcolm Connolly took the stand in the Hollywood star's defamation trial Thursday, telling the court he witnessed his client go from being happy in love to 'quiet' as Heard became more 'dominant' and 'demanding.' Testifying remotely, Connolly, who began working as Depp's private personal security in 2006, said: 'At the beginning [it was] all lovey-dovey. Everything was great. Honeymoon period was on, and yeah it was good.' But Connolly, who identifies as a 'protection officer', said things then 'started to change' between the two spouses, who began arguing more often. The jury was shown a photo taken by Connolly during Depp and Heard's honeymoon in 2013 (top). Depp, posing alongside his now ex-wife and three others, appeared to have 'swelling' on his face.

Elon Musk hints he's shifted to the right over last 14 years as liberals morphed into 'woke progressives': Twitter sees exodus of 'wokerati' since his $44B takeover with Kamala, AOC and Bernie losing THOUSANDS of followers
Elon Musk hinted on Thursday his political sentiment has shifted rightward over the past 14 years, by posting a meme showing a moderate liberal driven into the arms of conservatives. The image depicts a stick figure labeled 'me' remaining stationary relative to another labeled 'conservative', as the figure at the 'liberal' end of the spectrum moves further and further to the left. By the final diagram, labeled 2021, the 'me' figure is to the right of the center line, as the conservative chuckles and the liberal - now labeled 'woke progressive' - accuses the centrist of bigotry. Musk shared the post without comment, but his political views have taken on new significance after his $44billion deal to buy Twitter and his declaration the platform should be 'politically neutral'. Responding to his tweet, many angry liberals claimed conservatives had grown more extreme since 2008, the year Barack Obama was first elected president.

Not sneering at us any more: Blockading families in their homes, forcing children to wear hazmat suits, robot dogs patrolling the streets... Even by China's standards, their new Covid crackdown is brutal - as life in the despised West is back to normal
Videos from inside China's locked-down districts have shown hazmat-suited workers implementing the government's zero-Covid policy, confining countless numbers of residents confined to their homes. Residents peered nervously from windows of tall apartment blocks, as the figures below erected the fencing across the entrances to their skyscrapers, caging them into their homes. This is the Pudong district of Shanghai, deemed a high-risk Covid area in need of what the city authorities call 'hard isolation', and where residents say they are being treated like animals. 'Could we also put fences around the homes of Shanghai leaders?' asked one, as their photos and videos coursed through Chinese social media, pursued by the Communist Party's ever-zealous censors. The story is the same in the rest of Shanghai's districts. One video shows more hazmat-suited workers drilling the doors shut at a restaurant in the city to prevent those inside from leaving. Two elderly men look out in disbelief. Elsewhere, more men-in-white beat a group of residents demanding food, lashing out viciously with long sticks. Pictured left, authorities in hazmat suits manhandling a resident in Shanghai, top right, members of the Blue Sky Rescue team disinfecting a residential community in the phased lockdown in Shanghai, and bottom right, children going to school in protective gear.
