    The caregivers of an 82-year-old woman allowed her to sit in the same chair, not moving for six months, until she died earlier this year in a home that smelled so bad that some of the first firefighters on the scene set up a fan by the door, authorities said. Prosecutors are deciding whether to charge Barbara Beam's caregivers in her Jan. 2 death at her house in Greenville after the coroner's office ruled her death was homicide by neglect. The officer asked the sister about Beam's condition, and the sister said Beam "stays in the chair located in the bedroom and that she had not moved out of the chair for approximately six months," according to the report.

After the attention-shy motor-mouth penned a shocking piece in her weekly Sun column about burning the boats of migrants (as well as referring to them as 'cockroaches')  there was a fair bit of backlash. If we were 'The Hopkins' right now, we'd be 'bricking it', as the kids say.

  • Turkish Cypriots vote in poll that could speed peace talks

    Nationalist incumbent Dervis Eroglu won the most votes in a first round last weekend but is expected to be trumped by reconciliationist challenger Mustafa Akinci after some three-quarters of the votes went to more compromising candidates in the first round last weekend. Akinci is a former mayor of the Turkish Cypriot half of the island's divided capital Nicosia and has been one of his community's most outspoken advocates of reconciliation with the internationally recognised Greek Cypriot government. A UN-monitored ceasefire line has divided the Mediterranean resort island since 1974 when Turkish troops occupied its northern third in response to an Athens-inspired coup seeking union with Greece.
