  • Just call your dad on Father's Day before posting a photo of him on Facebook news

    This Father’s Day, call your dad.  Your dad doesn’t care how many likes you collect on Instagram or Facebook. Just pick up the phone and call the guy.  SEE ALSO: You haven't heard of this masculinity movement, but it's exactly what men need right now Listen, I get it — you want to show all your friends what a total stud your dad was in his 20s or share a cute childhood, family photo where you look completely adorable and your sister is in peak awkward stage.  But before you post a photo on social media, let him hear your voice. Imagine how many likes this guy would get on Instagram. My sister is going to be so mad. He wants to talk to you, not spend 30 minutes trying to figure out how Instagram works, only to see 12 "❤️❤️❤️omg so cute!" comments from people he doesn't know.  SEE ALSO: Dad jokes, ranked You might say "but I don't have much to talk to my dad about." Have you ever talked to an 8-year-old? They say some stupid things and your dad used to listen to you talk all the time. As a kid, I spent hours explaining my high-level thoughts about American Gladiators, and you know what? He just listened (and then took me to Costco for a $1 hot dog).  Even better than just talking? Ask him a question. Ask him about his day, his life, the latest season of Blue Bloods, whatever — you'll learn something. And maybe you'll discover an even better story to share about him for the 'gram. WATCH: Dads everywhere will love the Avengers themed Thor toolbox

  • Moscow taxi mounts pavement and injures people 'wearing Mexico colours' news

    A taxi mounted the pavement near Moscow's Red Square on Saturday evening, ploughing into a group of people and injuring eight. Early reports say that Mexico fans are among the injured, as some of those involved were wearing Mexican team colours. Police said the driver likely lost control of the vehicle and has been detained. Two ambulances quickly arrived at the scene and seven people were taken to hospital.  There were no immediate details on the severity of the pedestrians' injuries, although a medical source told local media that none of them were grave. The driver, a citizen of Kyrgyzstan, said he did not act on purpose, according to Moscow authorities.  The taxi lost a bumper and toppled a parking sign during the incident Credit: Twitter Interfax media reported sources saying the driver may have been drunk. The accident took place on Ilinka Street, about 650 feet from Red Square and Moscow's famous GUM shopping arcade. Russia is currently hosting the World Cup and Moscow is one of 11 Russian cities where tournament games are being played.  Although it did not initially appear to be deliberate, it will hardly lessen fears of a terrorist threat during the World Cup.  Ambulances take injured people away in the aftermath of the accident Credit: Twitter Russia has earned the enmity of jihadi groups with its bombing campaign against the Islamic State and rebels in Syria, and Islamists have reportedly threatened fans at the tournament. Last year, 16 people were killed when a lone wolf attacker blew himself up in the metro in St Petersburg, the World Cup host city near where the England team is based for the tournament.  An ambulance parked near the damaged taxi that injured seven when it mounted the pavement  Credit: Jack Stubbs/Reuters Moscow has struggled for years with a simmering Islamist insurgency in the Caucasus region, where it fought two bloody wars in Chechnya.    Tens of thousands of police have been deployed to World Cup cities, along with national guardsmen and Cossacks, the traditional caste of horse warriors. The taxi is towed away from the scene of the crash, just a few hundred yards from the Kremlin Credit: Reuters Anti-aircraft missiles and drone-jamming devices have been protecting the skies near stadiums.  The influx of police into World Cup cities has been so great that police in at least one other city have worried crime could go up there.

  • North Korea 'sought diplomatic back channel through Jared Kushner' news

    Jared Kushner was partly responsible for setting up a diplomatic back channel with North Korea that led to the Singapore summit. Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser was approached by an American businessman based in Singapore last year, the New York Times reported. Gabriel Schulze, whose family made a fortune in the mining business, told Mr Kushner that a highly placed North Korean official was seeking to speak with him to look into the possibility of a meeting between Mr Trump and Kim Jong-un. The approach came as tensions heightened between the two countries, and Mr Trump and Kim exchanged threats. Senior North Korean officials wanted to get in touch with Mr Kushner because of his family relationship to Mr Trump. Hidden trillions: What if North Korea’s economy opened up? They reportedly felt that, amid a rapid turnover of senior White House staff, Mr Kushner would continue to have influence with the president. Mr Kushner reported the possibility of a diplomatic back channel to Mike Pompeo, who was then the Director of the CIA, the New York Times reported. It might have been expected that Mr Kushner would tell the US State Department instead, but he did not have a good relationship with Rex Tillerson, then the Secretary of State. Mr Pompeo took the lead in negotiations with North Koreans and subsequently replaced Mr Tillerson as Secretary of State. The White House and the CIA declined to comment on Mr Kushner's role. Mr Schulze told the New York Times: "I do not discuss the nature of my business or personal relationships." Mr Kushner was also said to have been involved in the setting up a diplomatic back channel between Mr Trump's administration and China early in the presidency. Mr Kushner reportedly set up a diplomatic back channel through Cui Tiankai, China’s ambassador to Washington, which helped lead to Xi Jinping, the Chinese president, visiting Mr Trump at Mar-a-Lago, his Florida retreat in April last year. Meanwhile, it emerged that a former confidant of Mr Trump met with a Russian individual who offered "dirt" on Hillary Clinton for $2 million (£1.5 million). Roger Stone, the confidant, told the Washington Post he rejected the offer in May 2016, telling the Russian: "You don’t understand Donald Trump. He doesn’t pay for anything." It also emerged that the Russian had previously been an FBI informant. Mr Stone, who met the man at a restaurant in Florida, said he appeared to have been the target of an "FBI sting".
