Jeremy Corbyn tells Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ‘get your hands dirty’ in expert gardening adviceAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez asked for “sage words of advice” from anyone with a green thumb while gardening over the weekend — and got a helping hand from the other side of the pond.Jeremy Corbyn responded to the freshman Democrat’s call for tips as she tended to a plot in a local community garden, encouraging her to “get your hands dirty” in a tweet. “For a new plot, first see what is already growing!” The Labour leader began, responding to a tweet the 29-year-old posted asking what she should plant in the space. “Then go for some flowers and plants that attract bees and thus improve pollination for everyone,” Mr Corbyn continued, adding, “lavender or comfrey good for bees.” Mr Corbyn, who has a well-known affinity for gardening, told Ms Ocasio-Cortez the “best way to be healthy is to get your hands dirty – in the soil!” The politician has previously drawn headlines for his gardening hobby, stirring controversy in 2016 when he was unable to be reached as he was reportedly “making jam”. > For a new plot, first see what is already growing!

She has gained attention and set a political trend by discussing issues with her constituents live on social media while performing seemingly mundane acts, from eating popcorn to installing furniture from IKEA. For what it’s worth, Ms Ocasio-Cortez ended up planting lavender, along with basil, spinach, sage, collard greens and several other plants and flowers in her garden.

Brexit deal legal advice sends pound tumbling

Brexit deal legal advice sends pound tumblingThe pound tumbled Tuesday after the UK government’s top legal advisor cast doubt on Prime Minister Theresa May’s last-gasp changes to her Brexit deal, hours before a vital vote. Sterling, which had been rising after May secured revisions to the Brexit withdrawal agreement, hit reverse after legal advice from Attorney General Geoffrey Cox. Cox said last-minute new agreements “reduce the risk” of Britain being “indefinitely and involuntarily” held in the so-called Irish border backstop.

Acting U.S. attorney general disregards advice on Russia probe recusal

Acting U.S. attorney general disregards advice on Russia probe recusalThe decision by Whitaker, known for making comments critical of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe before being appointed last month by President Donald Trump, was conveyed in a letter to congressional leaders by Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd. Boyd said in the three-page letter department ethics officials determined that Whitaker lacked any personal, political or business conflicts that would disqualify him from supervision of Mueller’s investigation. Boyd said the “appearance-of-impartiality” test in Whitaker’s case was deemed a “close call” in which “credible arguments could be made either way,” a finding he said Whitaker cited in his decision to retain his discretion to oversee the Mueller investigation.

NASA gives the Avengers some advice for helping Tony Stark

NASA gives the Avengers some advice for helping Tony StarkThe last time we saw Tony Stark, he was adrift in space in the
Avengers: Endgame trailer, and it didn't look like survival was likely. Luckily, the folks at NASA heard about Iron Man's plight and had some advice to offer for the rest of the Avengers who were still alive on Earth. Hey @Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark. As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for “@Avengers, we have a problem.” But if he can’t communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man pic.twitter.com/zavXrsPljq — NASA (@NASA) December 9, 2018 SEE ALSO: Thanos: I am not the villain here. Stop saying I'm the villain. The NASA tweet suggested, of course, to listen for a distress call from Stark that mirrors NASA's infamous "Houston, we have a problem" phrase. But since it seems like Stark, who has run out of food and water and is almost out of oxygen, doesn't have an operable communications device (at least not one that can reach Earth), NASA said that the Avengers who are on the ground should use all their resources to scan the skies for Iron Man. Unfortunately, the Avengers are a little short-staffed after the Snappening at the end of
Avengers: Infinity War. Based on the trailer, it looks like only a handful of superheroes are available: Captain America, Black Widow, The Hulk, Thor, Nebula, and Ant-Man. Hopefully Bruce Banner can use his genius to help find Stark, or maybe Thor will be able to fly out into space to help him once they locate him. In fact, check out this zoomed-in look at NASA's photo, shared by a sharp-eyed Twitter user. Finally found the hammer. pic.twitter.com/b18zTRV9Ep — Darshan Baid (@frunkad) December 9, 2018 It looks like Thor is already on the case. WATCH: You won't feel so good if you watched this before watching 'Avengers: Infinity War

Trump 'is pushing for interview with Robert Mueller' despite his lawyers' advice

Trump 'is pushing for interview with Robert Mueller' despite his lawyers' advicePresident Donald Trump is reportedly pushing for an interview with Robert Mueller despite his lawyers’ advice, believing that he can convince the special counsel that the FBI investigation into Russian election meddling and possible collusion with Trump campaign officials is a “witch hunt”. Mr Mueller has been negotiating with the president’s legal team for months in hopes of securing an interview. The special counsel reportedly wants to question Mr Trump about his associates’ possible coordination with Moscow – and his own possible obstruction of justice – as the final stage in his probe.
