Jessica Alba celebrates Honest Company’s IPO with husband Cash Warren in Miami

Jessica Alba treated herself to some fun in the sun in Miami over the weekend as she celebrated her Honest company’s IPO last week. 

The actress-cum-businesswoman and husband Cash Warren were seen in these exclusive DailyMail.com photos relaxing at a luxury beachfront resort during their mini getaway.

The couple were spotted making the most out of the sunshine, with daily trips to the beach, sunbathing by the hotel’s VIP cabanas and playing football in the water.  

Then at night they hit the town for a fancy dinner and dancing at a 24-hour nightclub. 

Alba, who just turned 40 last month, showed off her stunning figure as she frolicked in the waves during a game of catch with Warren and a male friend on Saturday.

Sources told the gossip site Alba and Warren were joined by a group of friends at VIP booth where they seen taking tequila shots. The couple were finally seen leaving the venue around 4am. 

The celebration comes just days after Alba had been in New York City where her consumer goods brand, Honest, made its stock market debut, during which it was valued at nearly $2billion. 

Its stock, trading on the Nasdaq under the symbol ‘HNST,’ rose 7 per cent to close at $23.

The actress stopped by The Drew Barrymore Show on Friday where she spoke to the actress about taking her company public. 

‘I just I feel like this is the beginning of our next chapter and I’m just with my kids and my husband, it’s been such a journey getting to this point and I’m just thrilled,’ Alba said. 

Asked by Barrymore whether she ever envisioned being a successful business owner as a child, Alba said: ‘No, I mean I had this idea to create this company because it just made sense that people shouldn’t have to choose between what works and what’s good for them.

‘And putting people’s health and wellness and thinking about the planet and sustainability, and then also like diversity and inclusion and representation. 

‘And all of those values to me is really I think why we’ve been able to take the business to this point.’

The Honest Company was valued at $2.1billion after going public on the stock market last Wednesday. 

‘This is an incredible jump off into building a company that I hope will be around for 100-plus years,’ Alba said in an interview Wednesday.

‘Our growth, fueled by being public, will enable us to drive more product innovation and consumer accessibility,’ added Alba, known for her acting roles in the film Fantastic Four and TV series Dark Angel.

Honest’s offerings include eco-friendly baby products, vitamins, sunscreen lotions and sanitizers that are sold online and through partnerships with brick-and-mortar stores including Costco and Target.

Co-founded in 2011 by Alba, Honest is backed by investment firms Lightspeed, Fidelity and General Catalyst, among others.

Alba stepped down as chair of the board but remains a director of the board and is also the company’s chief creative officer.   

The company’s IPO comes weeks after Alba celebrated her 40th birthday with a small party at her office in California.

In videos shared on Instagram, the actress was then seen emerging from the building with friends, all of whom wore masks to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The birthday celebration appeared to be a work party, as neither her husband Cash Warren nor their three children appeared to be present.

The Honest Company founder married Cash in 2008 after they first met on the set of her 2005 superhero film Fantastic Four.

The couple welcomed their daughters Honor, 12, and Haven, nine, in 2008 and 2011, respectively, and three-year-old Hayes arrived in 2017.

Game on! Morty the Australian shepherd plays Connect 4 and Jenga with astonishing accuracy

Game on! Morty the Australian shepherd plays Connect 4 and Jenga with astonishing accuracy (but he still can’t beat his owner)

  • Morty Australian shepherd, four, is filmed playing games of Connect 4 and Jenga
  • Owner, student Florian Beck, 28, taught the dog to play with amazing precision
  • Morty gently takes each piece in his mouth and strategically drops it into place

This is the astonishing moment a dog strategically plays Connect 4 and Jenga with his owner for treats – but can’t seem to beat his human at the games.   

Morty the four-year-old Australian shepherd was taught to play the games with incredible precision by his owner, Florian Beck, a 28-year-old student.

In the clip the talented duo from Stuttgart, Germany, are at first seen playing a game of Connect 4.

Morty gently takes each piece in his mouth before dropping it into place and even blocking some of Mr Beck’s attempts to get four counters in a line and win the game.   

With each turn the pooch gets a treat and encouragement from his owner, but that doesn’t stop him from focusing on the game.

After each go the dog appears to look at the board to see where his owner has dropped his counter before making his move.  

Despite putting in a near game-winning performance Morty is outwitted when his component scores a diagonal win. 

In the video the pair then move onto Jenga, with Morty using his mouth to grab the pieces Mr Beck points to before carefully placing them on top of the pile.

Mr Beck said: ‘Morty is a super cute and cuddly dog, but he wants to work and needs a job, otherwise he gets restless and bored.’ 

The student has even taught Morty how to fetch him a beer and his phone.

The pair also performing several acrobatic tricks together which require Morty to balance on Mr Beck’s back, as well as a trick in which the dog fall backwards in to his arms in a ‘trust fall’.

He added: ‘He is such a good boy who trusts me completely. Love it!’

The real-life Timon and Pumbaa: Warthog and mongoose are good pals

This warthog and mongoose look like they have no worries as they’ve become best friends just like a real-life Timon and Pumbaa.

Miss Piggy the warthog and Mongo the mongoose have an uncanny resemblance to the famous friends from The Lion King.

The pair live at an animal conservation centre in Botswana.  

Just like their big screen doubles, Miss Piggy and Mongo love to play together and Mongo even rides on his friend’s back.

Fans might notice Mongo is a mongoose and not a meerkat like the character Timon, but both species are closely related.

And both Miss Piggy, aged eight, and six-year-old Mongo have found happiness after a rough start in life.

Miss Piggy was rescued as a baby after being hit by a car and Mongo is an orphan.

But now they have found happiness together at CARACAL – the Centre for Conservation of African Resources: Animals, Communities and Land use – in Chobe, Botswana.

Because they have been rescued, they cannot be safely returned to the wild so the pair act as wildlife ambassadors helping to educate local communities.

CARACAL volunteer Kaitlin Joos Vandewalle, 23, has known Miss Piggy and Mongo since they first arrived at the centre.

She said: ‘It absolutely feels like we have a special pair here, very similar to the nostalgic images that come to mind when thinking of Timon and Pumbaa.

‘The two definitely get along, it is almost guaranteed that if you go down to them you will encounter some form of playful interaction occurring.’

As this amazing video and images show Miss Piggy and Mongo like nothing better than playing together or wallowing in the mud.

In the film the pair famously sing the song Hakuna Matata, a Swahili phrase often translated to mean ‘no worries’.

And it looks like that is what things are like now for this real-life version of the Lion King pals.

Kaitlin said: ‘Miss Piggy came to us in 2013, as a baby warthog. She had been hit badly by a car and my mother was called in to evaluate and treat the animal.

‘This particular mongoose, Mongo, came to us as an orphan, after the mother had been hit by a car.

‘Both Miss Piggy and Mongo are unable to be returned to the wild safely. As a result, they live as part of the CARACAL family and serve as wildlife ambassadors for their species, bringing joy to those who get the chance to meet and learn about them.

‘We see more than 2000 school children from around the country at the centre each year.

‘The animals that live with us at CARACAL serve as wildlife ambassadors for their species, helping us to educate the public on the importance of wildlife and biodiversity in the region.’

CARACAL is a donation reliant not-for-profit NGO founded by Kaitlin’s parents; disease ecologist and wildlife vet Dr Kathleen Alexander DVM PhD and wildlife biologist Dr Mark Joos Vandewalle PhD.

The NGO is focused on assisting communities in Northern Botswana and securing the health of the environments on which they depend, including assisting wildlife that are injured or orphaned in the region.

Kaitlin said: ‘I grew up here in Chobe, Botswana; living in the Chobe National Park for my beginning years, as my parents had worked for the Botswana Wildlife Department.

‘I have been volunteering at CARACAL for as long as I can remember; when I was little I would give educational tours through the park to school children, local visitors, and tourists.

‘In addition, I often spent my time caring for the orphaned or injured animals that would come under our care.

‘More recently, now that I have received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Virginia Tech in the United states, and moved back home more permanently, I have been assisting with research in both the lab and field and have also begun expanding our social media presence.’

Ron DeSantis could block the extradition of Trump if he is indicted in New York probe

Florida officials are preparing options for what to do about Donald Trump should he be charged by New York prosecutors while he is in the Sunshine state.

The Manhattan district attorney’s criminal investigation into the former president is reaching its final stages and an obscure extradition clause in Florida law could benefit Trump if he’s indicted.

In Florida’s statute on interstate extradition, the state’s governor has the power to intervene over whether an indicted ‘person ought to be surrendered’ to law enforcement officials from another state, Politico revealed.

That means if Trump gets charged by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance – who is probing the former president’s business practices – it would be in the hands of Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, a close Trump friend and ally, to decide if Trump should be handed over to New York authorities. 

Law enforcement officials in Palm Beach County, Fla., where Trump lives in his Mar-a-Lago club, are preparing for a possible indictment coming down from New York. 

And they’re discussing how to how to handle the thorny extradition issue that could come from it, two sources close to the matter told the news outlet. 

‘The statute leaves room for interpretation that the governor has the power to order a review and potentially not comply with the extradition notice,’ Joe Abruzzo, clerk of the Circuit Court of Palm Beach County, told Politico. 

He is the official who would be in charge of opening a potential fugitive-at-large case.

Abruzzo is also a close friend of President Joe Biden’s brother Frank, who works for a Florida-based law firm. Abruzzo said that, despite his friendship with the Biden family, ‘the full extent of the law will be followed and carried out appropriately, without bias.’

Florida officials are debating what to do about Donald Trump if he's indicted by New York prosecutors while in their state as an obscure state law gives Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis - seen with Trump at a 2018 campaign rally - the power to decide extradition

Florida officials are debating what to do about Donald Trump if he’s indicted by New York prosecutors while in their state as an obscure state law gives Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis – seen with Trump at a 2018 campaign rally – the power to decide extradition

It’s unclear if Vance will seek an indictment. Prosecutors in New York obtained the former president’s tax records in March, after a protracted legal battle that ended when the Supreme Court ruled Trump had to hand them over. 

Trump, however, has moved to his Bedminister, N.J., club as Mar-a-Lago has closed for the hot summer season. In moving, he lost the protection he had in Florida.

Even though New Jersey has a similar extradition statue – giving the governor power to decide – that state’s top executive is Democrat Phi Murphy, who is no fan of Trump’s and unlikely to help him. 

If there is an indictment, Trump’s lawyers could also negotiate a condition of surrender, which would not involve local law enforcement nor either state’s governors.

An attorney for the former president didn’t comment to Politico. But Trump has repeatedly maintained his innocence and declared himself to be the victim of a ‘witch hunt.’

The issue took on a renewed sense of urgency when Vance said last month that he will retire at the end of 2021 and there is speculation his office will issue any indictments before that.

Vance’s investigation into the Trump Organization also intensified last month, when prosecutors interviewed several employees of Trump’s lender, Deutsche Bank, and his insurance brokerage, Aon. 

New subpoenas were issued and some witnesses were interviewed before a grand jury. 

Vance also hired financial accounting experts and people with extensive experience in white-collar crime for the Trump investigation.

And, in March, the Manhattan DA’s office received thousands of documents from Trump’s accounting firm Mazars USA, including tax returns from January 2011 to August 2019, as well as financial statements, engagement letters and communications related to financial disclosures.

Any state criminal charges are beyond the reach of federal pardons. 

Trump is also being investigated in two other matters: by Justice Department officials for his role in the January 6th MAGA riot on Capitol Hill and in Georgia, where state prosecutors are looking into Trump’s efforts to manipulate the state’s 2020 election results.

One lucky Aussie scoops $30million in the Powerball – here are the winning numbers

  • NSW or ACT man claims a whopping $30million in division one Powerball prize
  • He was the only entry to claim the prize and match all eight lucky numbers
  • Winning numbers in Thursday’s draw were 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 19, 25, Powerball is 20

One lucky Australian has become an overnight millionaire after winning The Lott’s division one Powerball prize. 

The newly-rich NSW or ACT man claimed a whopping $30million after matching all eight numbers, the only entry to do so. 

The winning numbers from Thursday night’s draw were 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 19, 25 and the Powerball is 20

Five entries claimed the division two prize with each lucky winner taking home more than $100,000. 

The winning numbers from Thursday night’s draw were 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 19, 25 and the Powerball is 20

Last month, a western Sydney man was one of two $40million Powerball winners, splitting the division one prize with a grandmother from Campbelltown. 

The Smithfield resident hadn’t even known he held a victorious ticket because one of the digits in the phone number The Lott had for him was incorrect.  

‘I didn’t know I’d won,’ the multi-millionaire said at the time.  

‘I’d heard there was another Powerball winner they were trying to contact.

‘I even said to my friend, ”we’ll never win, only old people win.

‘They said you’d been ringing but I didn’t get a call. There was a digit wrong on my mobile number.’ 

The recipient of the other $40million told The Lott her grandson had predicted she was going to win the Powerball prize. 

‘I’m a bit gobsmacked. I’m in shock. I can’t believe it,’ she said.

Moment ‘drunk’ man gets into the wrong car and can’t work out why his key is not working

Moment ‘drunk’ man gets into the wrong car and can’t work out why his key is not working

  • ‘Drunk’ man is seen unlocking his car before climbing into an identical vehicle
  • The unidentified man fumbles with the key fails to realise he is in the wrong car 
  • After being unable to start car he spots his own vehicle flashing across the road 

This is the bizarre moment a fumbling man climbs into the wrong car and can’t figure out why his key is not working. 

The man, who a witness claimed was ‘drunk and had walked out of a bar’, is seen unlocking his car using his key fob before climbing into an identical vehicle that is already unlocked.

Unable to work out why the key is not working in the ignition the man continually hits the buttons on the key.

He eventually notices his unlocked car flashing and beeping from across the street, in Richmond, Virginia, on the night of Saturday May 1.

Playing it off the man quickly gets out of the stranger’s car and slams the door before stumbling across the road to his own.

Unbeknownst to the man Surveillance footage captured his mistake, it is not known if the man was intoxicated at the time.

A witness to the incident said: ‘A drunk dude walked out of a bar on a late Saturday night, unlocked his car but climbed into an identical one that was already unlocked.

‘He spent a minute trying to figure out why it wouldn’t turn on, repeatedly hitting his key fob until he finally noticed his car flashing and beeping from across the street. 

‘He played it off like nothing ever happened.’ 

In the footage the man can be approaching the car very slowly and seemingly unsteady on his feet.

Hunt for man who took lawnmower for test drive in Cairns

Hunt for shirtless man who took a luxury ride-on lawnmower for a test drive – but never came back

  • A man approached another man, 63, asking to look at his ride-on lawnmower
  • The man then took the luxury lawnmower for a ‘test drive’ but failed to return
  • Incident was at Edmonton near Cairns in Far North Queensland on May 3
  • Queensland Police are still attempting to locate the man who allegedly stole it

Police are on the hunt for a man who took a luxury ride-on lawnmower for a test drive – but failed to return.   

An elderly man, 63, from Edmonton near Cairns in Far North Queensland, was approached by a shirtless man who asked to look at his John Deere mower about 3.30pm on May 3.

The man then took the luxury mower for a test-drive in neighbouring streets but never came back. 

Video released by Queensland Police shows a man, wearing a red cap and shorts, making a very slow ‘escape’ in the Tropical region. 

 The man (pictured) asked to look at the John Deere mower at an address in Edmonton near Cairns in Far North Queensland on May 3 – but never came back

The high-end mower has since been recovered, but police are trying to locate the man who allegedly stole it.

He was driving a blue Toyota Aurion sedan before he took off on the mower, in a decision best described as rash. 

An ‘entry level’ John Deere E110 ride on lawnmower retails for approximately $3,600.

They are described as ‘compact yet powerful’, and are fairly easy to use thanks to its two-pedal hydrostatic transmission. 

In 2018, a John Deere ride on lawnmower was among the items stolen from a cemetery in Queensland’s remote Gympie Region.

At the time, Bill Greer, the Senior Constable for Imbil Police, described the brazen theft as ‘appalling behaviour.’

It remains unknown if the lawnmower was eventually recovered. 

Police later recovered the luxury ride on mower, but the man (pictured) who allegedly stole it in Far North Queensland remains at large

  • The hidden cave has been around since the 80s and was once used by fishermen
  • Ms Tuffery said it took two hours to get there and it was a dangerous climb up  

A young couple have stumbled across a hidden cave overlooking the ocean that’s been dubbed one of Australia’s ‘best kept secrets’.

Katie Tuffery, 28, and her boyfriend spent two hours trying to find the hidden spot nestled between rocks on the cliffside of Jervis Bay on New South Wales’ south coast.

After seeing videos of the secluded location on social media, the couple decided to make the daring trek up the coastline themselves – adding the climb was definitely worth it.

TikTok users replied saying it looked like the famed Fisho’s Hut, which is built into the cliffs of Beecroft Peninsular, but Ms Tuffery refused to divulge its location while local officials warn reaching it can be exceedingly dangerous

‘We were so scared but it was so refreshing when we found it because you can’t see it from up the top [of the cliff],’ Ms Tuffery told Daily Mail Australia.

‘We had to bend down and peak over the rocks but as soon as we saw it, it was just the best feeling.’

In footage shared to her TikTok, Ms Tuffery and her partner are seen sitting on a bench that had been setup in the cave.

The spot has been around since the 80s and was once used by fishermen but locals are trying hard to keep it a secret.

Australian man who claims he created Bitcoin takes court action to recover $5.7 billion

Australian man who claims he created Bitcoin takes court action to recover $5.7 billion of the cryptocurrency

  • Craig Wright claims he wrote Bitcoin’s foundational technical document
  • He claims he lost his ‘key’ to his 111,000 Bitcoins when computer was hacked
  •  Has launched action to recover $5.7 billion of the cryptocurrency
  • A defendant has labelled computer scientist’s claims as ‘bogus’ 

An Australian computer scientist who alleges he created Bitcoin has launched court action to secure $7.25 billion of the cryptocurrency he says he owns.

In a London High Court case that was promptly labeled “bogus” by one defendant, Craig Wright is demanding that 16 developers of the cryptocurrency allow him to retrieve around 111,000 Bitcoin held at two digital addresses that he does not have private keys for.

Wright alleges he lost the encrypted keys when his home computer network was hacked in February 2020. Police are investigating.

Wright, has alleged since 2016 that he wrote Bitcoin foundational white paper – which first outlined the technology behind the digital assets – under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008.

The claim is hotly disputed.

Craig Wright says he wrote Bitcoin’s foundational technical document under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, but lost access to his 111,000 Bitcoin when his computer was hacked.

The Australian, who is autistic and lives in Britain with his wife and two of his three children, alleges in his latest lawsuit that developers have breached their duties to act in the best interests of the rightful owner of globally-traded assets.

‘Our client has always maintained that he created Bitcoin to operate within existing laws and that in the event of loss or theft, where legitimate ownership can be proven, the developers have a duty to ensure recovery,’ said Paul Ferguson, a partner at law firm Ontier, which is representing Wright.

The case is being brought against the developers of four networks – Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV), Bitcoin Core (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin Cash ABC (ABC) – at addresses in continental Europe, the United States, New Zealand, Australia and Japan, a court filing seen by Reuters showed.

One of the defendants, Peter Todd, said he and others were not involved in day-to-day network development, that Wright had not proven his ownership and that Bitcoin should not be subject to “arbitrary seizure.”

‘As this very case shows, if we allow people to get coins seized and reassigned by court order, that puts your coins at risk of being stolen by abuses of those fallible processes,’ he said by email.
