I’ve shed many happy tears this week. Like most of the world, I was glued to the TV anxiously awaiting the results of the US presidential election and when it was announced that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris had won, I was overcome with emotion. As a mum of a young daughter, Harris’ historic win filled me with hope for the future, even though I know we’ve still got a way to go. “While I may be the first woman in this office,” she said.“I will not be the last.”To read more about Biden and Harris’ trailblazing victory, turn to page 6. News of Lisa Curry’s new grandson also warmed my heart. After tragically losing her 33-year-old daughter Jaimi in September, the new addition has brought much-welcomed joy to the former Australian…

a new era

“I’m humbled by the trust and confidence you’ve placed in me” Breaking the record for most votes ever cast for a US presidential candidate, Joe Biden capped off a bitterly contested and wildly controversial election with a speech humbly calling for harmony. “What I must admit has surprised me, tonight we’re seeing all over this nation, all cities in all parts of the country, indeed across the world, an outpouring of joy, of hope of renewed faith in tomorrow, bring a better day,” he said on November 7 from Wilmington, Delaware, in his first appearance since he was projected as the winner over President Donald Trump. “I’m humbled by the trust and confidence you’ve placed in me. I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide but to unify.” As…

trump’s next move

When multiple media outlets called the race for Biden, Trump, 74, was at his golf club in Virginia. Shortly after, he issued a defiant statement. “The simple fact is this election is far from over,” he said. “Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.” As Trump’s campaign pressed forward with a flurry of lawsuits alleging voter fraud, the Biden campaign has reacted dismissively to the idea that the president could resist the transition of power. “The American people will decide this election,” a campaign spokesman told reporters. “And the United States government is perfectly capable of…

‘i won’t be the last’

Kamala Harris, 56, is set to become the first woman vice president in US history. “What a testament it is to Joe’s character that he had the audacity to break one of the most substantial barriers that exists in our country and select a woman as his vice president,” she said in her speech from Delaware on November 7. Harris, a California senator, is the daughter of immigrant parents – her mother, a cancer researcher, came to the US from India while her father, an economist, was born in Jamaica. She will also be the first Black woman and first woman of Asian descent to land the job. “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last,” she added in her speech. “Because…

meghan & harry growing royal rift

Usually, on Remembrance Sunday in the UK, around 10,000 people gather at London’s main national war memorial to observe two minutes of silence at 11am. In this year’s scaled-back event, the crowds were missing and most noticeably absent was Prince Harry, who sources tell WHO’s sister publication People had every intention of being in the UK for the event before his travel plans were skittled by the pandemic. Adding insult to injury – and in the latest sign of the growing gulf between him and the royal family – Harry, who served in the Army for 10 years, rising to the rank of captain and undertaking two tours of duty in Afghanistan, was denied a personal request to Buckingham Palace for a wreath to be placed at the London memorial on…
