Ukrainian winemakers visit California's Napa Valley to learn how to heal war-ravaged vineyards

RUTHERFORD, Calif. (AP) — As the head of an association of winemakers in southern Ukraine, Georgiy Molchanov knows a lot about how to cultivate grapes; not so much how to grow them amid undetonated mines.

The damage — and danger — the mines brought to his...

The best and worst US cities for singles in 2024

Struggling to meet someone? You might not be totally to blame! It turns out the city where you live makes a big difference. Some cities have a much higher number of single people, or going out to meet people comes at a lower cost, with better amenities and safety available. Dating in these cities makes it a lot easier for singles to spend time (and money) meeting new people, with a bigger dating pool available to choose from. Conversely, there are cities where unaffordability is a problem, where there is a mismatch between the number of singles of a certain gender, or there is a smaller pool of eligible people to date. Curious? Click on to find out which US cities you should go, and where to avoid, if you're single in 2024. All prices in USD.

It's Official: We Found the 40 Prettiest Flowers in the World

How many of these breathtaking beauties do you recognize? As is often the case with beautiful things, we've given flowers meaning—so much so that even looking at one can make you feel more alive. A plain red rose has become a romantic expression of love and sunny daffodils represent the rebirth of the planet every spring. Of course, because they're plants, we also use them in more practical ways: Silky flower petals have been crushed and distilled into essential oils and perfumes for centuries, and we've figured out how to eat some of them and make tea with select leaves, stalks, and blooms. But to put it simply, the joy of admiring a gorgeous, colorful flower is unmatched. (Though we should note that some are best admired from afar because of toxicity.) Not to mention, no two flowers are exactly the same. Some rise out of the water to bloom while others sprout vines that go where they want…permanently decorating the side of your house. Even low bushes can produce incredible blossoms, like giant peonies, and if you've ever sat under a cherry blossom tree with a cool breeze blowing tiny petals around you, you know how magnificent flowering trees can be. A person who loves flowers is called an "anthophile," and if this describes you, you'll probably recognize most—if not all—of the flowers below. Rare or common, bright or soft, simple or complex, these beautiful flowers from around the world are certainly sights to behold.

White beaches, dolphins, seahorses: I sailed away from Britain, but now I love its coasts more than ever

I’m staring at a seahorse. At the little spines on its head. A spiky crown. Like a unicorn under water.

This little fella angles this way and that while bubbles, or perhaps thousands of tiny seahorse...
