Qatar says new terror list is "disappointing surprise"

Qatar says new terror list is "disappointing surprise"By Aziz El Yaakoubi DOHA (Reuters) - Qatar said on Wednesday a decision by four Arab states to add 18 groups and individuals allegedly linked to Doha to their "terrorist" lists was "a disappointing surprise" and that it was doing all it could to fight extremism. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain put another nine groups based in Yemen and Libya and nine people from several Arab countries on the blacklist, saying all were associated with Qatar. "(The new list) comes as a disappointing surprise that the blockading countries are still pursuing this story as part of their smear campaign against Qatar," Sheikh Saif Bin Ahmed al-Thani, director of the Gulf kingdom's Government Communications Office, said in a statement sent to Reuters.

Tinder couple awkwardly meet for the first time on live TV after 3 years of messaging

Tinder couple awkwardly meet for the first time on live TV after 3 years of messagingIn the world of dating apps, there's playing the long game, and then there's straight-up procrastinating.  One pair of college students have found fame after dilly-dallying for three long years on Tinder, messaging back and forth without ever actually meeting up. But, at long last, they've met in person. Live on TV.  Michelle and Josh achieved viral fame earlier this month, after Josh tweeted screen shots of their three-year long running gag of late replies to each other. Tinder caught wind of the pair's procrastination and even offered to pay for the pair to go on a date.  The pair have FINALLY met for the first time on Good Morning America in front of millions of viewers and it was every bit as awkward as you can imagine.  As the two hugged, they both giggled nervously. "It is so good to finally meet you," said Josh. "I'm blushing like crazy," he added.  After the show, the pair headed off to Maui, Hawaii, for their casual first proper date.
