    Trump is hilariously losing his war on comedy

    Trump took his war on comedy to DEFCON 1 at a rally a few weeks ago in South Carolina where he went after not one, not two, but three late night comedy hosts: Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon.

Add to that, just a few days before, Trump had launched an assault on Fallon via twitter claiming that the comic was "whimpering" and urged him to "be a man." What prompted Trump's twitter salvo? Fallon, while not truly criticizing Trump, had recently revealed he had suffered a backlash for playfully messing up Trump's hair during an appearance on The

    World's best airline for 2018 revealed

    (CNN) - After 10 years in the wilderness -- if a premium airline that flies direct to more than 60 destinations can truly experience a wilderness -- Singapore Airlines is back on top. The Asian carrier was named Airline of the Year at the 2018 Skytrax World Airline awards, an honor it last held in 2008. It beat last year's victor, Qatar Airways, into second place. "We're very ecstatic," Yeoh Phee Teik, Singapore's senior vice president of customer experience, told CNN, shortly after senior staff and crew took to the stage at a glitzy ceremony in London on Tuesday.

    'My mum found my first grey hair at seven'

    Kate Dinota was only seven when her mother found her first grey hair. By the time she was 14, she unquestioningly took to dying it.

She is one of the many women featured on Instagram account Grombre - a community for women of all ages who are ditching dyes. Martha Smith, 26, founded it after finding a lack of support and advice elsewhere. The account lets women submit and share their journeys. It now has 10,000 followers and comments flood the images with positivity and support. "It's everyday women being like: 'I feel pressure to not age,
