Fortunately, DiCaprio has always been a good sport about the jabs. He gave Fey a thumbs-up on stage and laughed into his hand from his seat in the audience after Gervais’ shout-out.The attention on the Titanic star’s love life began in 1994, when he was linked to model Bridget Hall. By the early 2000s, he became one of the most eligible bachelors in Tinseltown. He went on to date Gisele Bündchen, Bar Refaeli, Blake Lively, Toni Garrn and Nina Agdal, among others, before finally settling down with current girlfriend Camila Morrone, who is 23 years his junior.“There’s so many relationships in Hollywood — and in the history of the world — where people have large age gaps,” Morrone told the Los Angeles Times in 2019 when asked whether critics of her and DiCaprio’s relationship get under her skin. “I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.”- Advertisement – Leonardo DiCaprio is almost as well-known for his love life as his movies and activism. Since launching his acting career in the early 1990s, the heartthrob has had a string of high-profile relationships with Hollywood’s finest actresses and, perhaps more famously, younger models.The Oscar winner’s dating history has often made him a punching bag for fellow celebrities including Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais. While introducing him at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, the 30 Rock creator quipped, “And now, like a supermodel’s vagina, let’s all give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio.” Six years later, the Office alum joked at the same awards show, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is nearly three hours long. Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere, and by the end, his date was too old for him.”- Advertisement – The Great Gatsby star and the L.A.-born model started dating in 2017 and have been going strong ever since. A source exclusively told Us Weekly in 2020, “They’re always together but like maintaining privacy,” noting that the pair prefer to stay “off the grid” and are “not the type of couple to be posting on social media about each other.”Scroll down to see DiCaprio’s complete dating history! – Advertisement –

As Daily Kos’ Kerry Eleveld noted earlier this month, the sign-off is critical in that it releases millions of dollars to transition teams working to set up new governments, along with critical access to federal agencies. But Murphy, a Trump appointee, has refused to sign the letter even as it’s been clear she privately recognizes that he lost. That refusal isn’t only, in just one example, endangering the novel coronavirus pandemic response either.“For USCIS—and DHS as a whole—the delay could hamper efforts to undo the myriad changes to immigration policy instituted by the Trump administration,” Aleaziz reported. The outgoing administration has implemented hundreds of immigration policies, some of which President-elect Biden has vowed to act on immediately after being sworn in, while others will be a lengthier process. While Biden’s team has likely already been reviewing these policies, Murphy is single-handedly blockading critical access that would likely benefit this process, for no reason than other than placating the sore loser who installed her.- Advertisement – The wall of silence at the administration could also be far-reaching in other ways at the agency. Named in Biden’s transition team is Ur Jaddou, a former USCIS chief counsel who has shined a light on the agency’s abuses and radicalization under impeached president Donald Trump. She’s now rumored to be a top pick to head USCIS, a decision that if pans out could be well-received by immigrant rights advocates. But Murphy’s refusal also blocks Jaddou from critical access and a head start in trying to restore and improve USCIS.As Daily Kos has noted before, USCIS has become radicalized under the outgoing administration. I mean, just look at who leads it in an acting capacity: Ken Cuccinelli, a racist who once compared immigrants to rodents. I repeat this next thing a lot because it needs to be repeated: A federal judge actually found this anti-immigrant loudmouth was unlawfully installed to his job, yet he’s still refused to leave. He instead spends a lot of time retweeting notorious right-wing trolls from his official government account while shamelessly campaigning for his soon-to-be-former boss on the taxpayer dime.In one of its final middle fingers to immigrants, USCIS has also rolled out a revised U.S. citizenship test intentionally making it harder for applicants to pass. Of course I wonder: Could Trump pass it? How about Senator-elect Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, who is apparently ignorant of basic shit we learn in elementary school? “On the campaign trail, Tuberville ducked interviews and declined debates, and now we all get to see why,” one recent op-ed in the state said.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – The blockading won’t work forever. Murphy and Trump can’t prevent the inevitable. Biden will be president on Jan. 20. It’s also true that every day preventing a smooth transfer of power is another day lost—and it’s happening on purpose. BuzzFeed News reports that the email to USCIS staffers orders that “’until ascertainment, there is to be no contact with the Biden team,’ before adding that ‘if and when’ the GSA recognition of Biden’s victory is formalized, contact will be made.” Just some truly fucking shameful stuff here, folks. January can’t come any faster.
Most patients continue to be young, for reasons that are yet clear, though it may be because younger people tend to travel more, Fukuda reported. He also said that many of the patients who died were young, but he couldn’t give an age range for the fatal cases. Fukuda said the WHO is not yet seeing clear signs of community transmission in Europe, although Spain had 54 cases and the United Kingdom had 18 as of early today. He said the cases in Spain are related to travel, while the UK has some travel-linked cases in schools. The global case count for the novel H1N1 influenza (swine flu) virus reached 1,490 cases and 30 deaths today, up from 1,085 cases with 26 deaths yesterday, Dr. Keiji Fukuda of the World Health Organization (WHO) reported at a briefing. He said the increase represents a combination of laboratories catching up on testing and continued spread of the virus. The WHO’s latest online update showed cases in 21 countries. The hardest-hit countries were Mexico, 590 cases; the United States, 286 cases yesterday; Canada, 140; Spain, 54, and the United Kingdom, 18. [WHO update] The US count rose to 403 confirmed cases in 38 states as of this morning, up from 286 cases yesterday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported. The death toll remained at 1. New York had 90 cases, followed by Illinois with 82, California, 49, Texas, 41, and Delaware, 20. [CDC swine flu page] Some states, including Minnesota, North Carolina, and New Hampshire, are cutting back on testing for the new flu virus. Minnesota said it would test only hospitalized patients, sick healthcare workers, and those who seek treatment from providers involved in an influenza surveillance system. North Carolina and New Hampshire announced similar moves, according to newspaper reports. Officials said the virus is behaving more like seasonal influenza, and its wide geographic extent makes the identification of individual cases less useful in tracking the epidemic. May 5, 2009 A US embassy official in Beijing said four US citizens were quarantined in China because of the new flu virus, though two have been released, according to an Associated Press/CBS News report. Embassy spokeswoman Susan Stevenson said the Americans either had flu-like symptoms or were close to cases of interest to Chinese authorities. Also quarantined in China were 29 students and a professor from the University of Montreal, none of whom were sick, the story said. [CBS/AP report]

The group published its findings today in PLoS Pathogens. A lack of related agents has hampered the comparative genetics studies needed to identify potential drug targets for malaria. The group found the new species, termed P gabon, when they examined serum samples from 19 wild-born chimps that were kept as pets by villagers in Gabon. Previously, only one other species had been identified, P reichenowi, an agent also found in chimps.[May 29 PLoS Pathogens study][May 28 PLoS Pathogens press release]H5N1 strikes birds in India’s West Bengal stateAnimal health officials in India recently reported an H5N1 avian influenza outbreak in backyard birds in West Bengal state, according to a May 27 report from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).
