But The process of Ouagata Christie? Oh, my friends, these are the things. The case introduces us to two warring WAGs (wives and girlfriends) of famous British footballers. One WAG, Rebecca Vardy (Jamie’s wife), is suing another, Colleen Rooney (Wayne’s wife), for slandering her on social media. Vardy allegedly leaked inconvenient information about Rooney in the press, which led Rooney to embark on a search mission in the style of Agatha Christie to find the rat. This led to some sinister revenge, a phone mysteriously dropped into the North Sea, and a slave-covered drama in the courtroom.
There are some many more ridiculous detailsbut other serious issues require attention. Still, if you need a mental break from worrying about the bear market, you can do worse than reading a little Wagatha.
The crypto party was as noisy as ever – and then someone turned on the lights. After the collapse of the stablecoins destroyed about $ 400 billion in market capitalization last week, the crypto industry was left with shaky confidence and a huge hangover. The information reached a dozen investors, founders, traders and members of DAO, asking them to share their emotions and point out their losses.

In the second part of our Screentime series, Annie talks to former Musical.ly president Hoffman about his personal phone habits, his conversations with Jimmy Iowa and the reason he downloaded more than 30 different dating apps. (Purely for research.)
“Some of the world’s largest companies are betting their future on XR [augmented and virtual reality] it is becoming central to modern life – to trade, education, entertainment, the arts and, of course, work, “wrote lawyer Britt Heller. “This can go in at least two directions: to a more inclusive future that allows people to transcend their physical differences and limitations, or to a shiny simulacrum of our unequal present.
Viewing: One way to recover a blocked Instagram account
This is a story we’ve heard before: Instagram removes a creator’s account after posting too many risky images. Faced with such a scenario, one creator of OnlyFans took a special kind of initiative. On “No jumper”Podcast, guest Kitty Lyxo guide listeners through her pre-platforming journey.

Meta has not yet commented on the allegations, but you will be shocked to learn that after the alleged meetings with Meta employees, Lixo’s account was miraculously restored.
Listening: The Modern Sk8r Boi— “Crypto Boy”
With an apology to Harry Styles, there is only one song that is repeated at Weekend’s House. This is a song about the separation of TikTok “crypto boy” and well, slaps. Singer Salem Ilezé, best known for her earlier hit TikTok Disney’s Angry (250 million streams in Spotify), left the hook and allowed followers to add their own verses. The result is incredibly playful, spiced with first-class crypto wordplay (“Mention NFTs one more time and we’re guaranteed not to fuck tonight”) and a certain love of blockchain obsessions: Nobody cares about your crypto, boy, at all. no, not even a single household coin.
