A red-eyed sculpture of a cobalt horse rearing majestically in front of Denver International Airport is having a real pop-culture moment. The timing may be accidental, but tributes have been trickling into Colorado ahead of the 13th birthday of “Mustang,” late artist Luis Jimenez’s iconic blue horse sculpture that debuted at Denver International Airport on Feb. 11, 2008. There’s the 2021 StokerCon anthology , announced this week from Denver-based Hex Publishers , a horror fiction anthology dedicated to “Mustang,” though most Denverites may not even know that’s the sculpture’s real name. For most, he goes by Blucifer, the apocalyptic, unofficial nickname for the 32-foot-tall, 9,000-pound sculpture. He also appears in the new comic book “The Department of Truth,” from former “Batman” writer James Tynion IV, a conspiracy-minded series on Image Comics that taps into Denver International Airport’s (DIA’s) history of fringe lore — and that prominently features a Page 1 take on … [Read more...] about Blucifer just turned 13.

THE mum of tragic teen Harry Dunn declared “We’ve done it, we’re good” after his killer was sentenced yesterday. Charlotte Charles also insisted it was “Job done” after fighting to see Anne Sacoolas face justice. The US citizen, 45, had mown down biker Harry while on the wrong side of the road and was charged with causing death by dangerous driving over the death of Harry in a head-on smash near RAF Croughton on August 27 2019. She then fled back to her homeland, claiming diplomatic immunity. A court heard Harry, 19, repeatedly begged "don't let me die" as he lay in the road following the 2019 head-on crash. In October Sacoolas admitted causing death by careless driving. Today, appearing at the Old Bailey via videolink - as she also did when she pleaded guilty - she got a suspended eight-month jail sentence and a 12-month driving ban. Outside court Charlotte, 46, insisted: “Job done, promise complete. Anne Sacoolas has a criminal record for the rest of her life. … [Read more...] about Harry Dunn begged ‘don’t let me die’ after being knocked off his motorbike by Anne Sacoolas in killer crash

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 6 The questions were endless. “What kind of car does God drive,” 7-year-old Alex Quanbeck would ask his mom. “What shoes does he wear?” Alex wanted to know about everything, the whys, the hows, but he had a specific and dedicated passion for Beastie Boys music, gas station snacks, rock crystals, and sharks, the latter manifested in a beloved shark’s tooth necklace he got in Hawaii. He was wearing it when he died. Alex was playing football with friends during recess at his San Rafael school when he tried to close a rolling gate so the ball would stay on the playground. The wheels on the gate fell off the rails and the 300 pounds of metal crushed him.

EXERCISE is one of the best ways to stay healthy, but most people struggle to fit enough into their days. Over a third of Brits aren't active enough for good health, according to the Government. However, new research suggests that just a couple of 60-second bursts of exercise each day could be enough to reduce your risk of an early death. Daily activities like running for the bus, bursts of power walking while doing errands or playing high-energy games with the kids were listed by the scientists as good exercises. The study , published in Nature Medicine, found that several one minute bursts of these activities each day have similar benefits to high-intensity interval training (HIIT), which celebs like Scarlett Johansson, and Jennifer Lopez are fans of. Lead author Emmanuel Stamatakis of the University of Sydney said: “A few very short bouts totalling three to four minutes a day could go a long way, and there are many daily activities that can be tweaked to … [Read more...] about Just one minute of exercise could slash your risk of dying early, scientists claim
