  • Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King defended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle deciding to step down from their royal duties, with Winfrey saying she supports them "1,000 percent."
  • TMZ spoke to the media mogul about whether the big 'step back' was inspiring, and Winfrey said it was nobody's place to judge the couple for making the "best decision" for their family.
  • "When a person has sat and thought about what is the best decision I'm gonna make for my family and then he makes that decision, none of us have any right to say anything about that," she said.
  • Winfrey and King also said it was unfair to say that Prince Harry and Markle "blindsided" Queen Elizabeth, because the Queen's own statement said negotiations had been underway for months.

Oprah Winfrey had a lot to say about negative attention toward Prince Harry and Meghan Markle deciding to step down from royal duties. TMZ spoke to the billionaire media mogul alongside Gayle King, and Winfrey expressed she had "1,000 percent" support for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

"What Harry said in that charity statement the other day [...] the last line of his statement where he said that he had to make the decision to back away from his family in order to move forward in peace with his new family. I mean, I don't know how they came up with those words, but who doesn't feel that?" Winfrey said.

The 5 best and 5 worst airports in the US, ranked by food options

Posted: 26 Jan 2020 09:38 AM PST

Airports aren't exactly known for their restaurants, but some locations definitely have more eateries and better options than others. 

Recently, the travel site Wanderu released a list of the best and worst airports in the US, based on food selection.

The site looked at the 50 busiest airports in the US and used Yelp reviews to see how many restaurants each airport has. Eateries needed at least 20 Yelp reviews to be included in the data and Wanderu classified them as highly-rated if they scored above a three-star average on Yelp. 

From there, Wanderu ranked airports based on their total number of highly-rated restaurants. If any airport tied, they gave the edge to the one with fewer total restaurants, which meant they had a higher overall percentage of good food.

Read on to see which busy US airports had the best and the worst dining selections.

Coming in fifth place, Logan International Airport has a pretty great food selection.

Although Wanderu reported that this Boston, Massachusetts, airport only has 28 qualifying restaurants (which is on the lower side compared to many of the other airports on the list), it still came up in the top five because half of them were highly-rated. 

According to Yelp data, the best eatery in the airport is Shojo, a Chinese restaurant with a few locations throughout Boston. 

The stop features modern Asian cuisine and it opens at 5 a.m. for even the earliest travelers to have breakfast. It also stays open until 30 minutes before the last departing flight. 

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has a number of stand-out restaurants.


With 48 qualifying restaurants, 15 of which are highly-rated, Arizona's Phoenix Sky Harbor is nearly leading the pack.

The airport offers a range of options including vegan fare, brunch food, and upscale meals. 

One spot you won't want to miss is The Refuge Coffee & Wine, which Yelp says is the top-rated restaurant in the airport. The spot serves up wine, coffee, brunch, and more. 

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has almost 90 qualifying restaurants.

This Georgia-based hub has more restaurant choices than any other airport on Wanderu's list, and 18 of those are highly-rated.

It has 88 qualifying options, which range from cafe food to high-end eats.

Based on Wanderu's report, the airport's top-rated eatery is One Flew South, the first upscale dining experience in the Atlanta-based airport.

It's located near Concourse E and it serves up "Southernational" food that's inspired by world travels.

These 10 countries face the biggest humanitarian crises in 2020

Posted: 26 Jan 2020 09:36 AM PST

syria russia eastern ghouta civilianReuters

  • The International Rescue Committee humanitarian group has published its annual "Emergency Watchlist" listing the ten countries facing the world's worst crises in 2020.
  • These countries combined are home to less than 6% of the global population, but produced 74% of the world's refugees, the IRC said.
  • The crises they face largely include armed conflict, disease epidemics, and natural disasters, and so far see no signs of stopping.
  • Scroll down to see the list and why.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Every year, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) lists the ten countries facing the world's biggest humanitarian crises, in an effort to highlight the vast amount of work world leaders and aid workers need to do.

These countries combined are home to less than 6% of the global population, but produced 74% of the world's refugees, the IRC noted.

The crises that they face — which largely include armed conflict, disease epidemics, and natural disasters — have changed little since last year, highlighting the "protracted nature of many of these crises and collective failure of the international community to resolve their root causes," the IRC said.

Scroll down to see the countries on the IRC's "Emergency Watchlist," and the issues they face.

10. Central African Republic


A mainly-Muslim coalition of armed groups known as Seleka took over the CAR's capital in 2013, and the country has seen thousands killed amid fighting between Christian militias ever since.

The government and 14 armed groups signed a peace deal in February 2019, but that has only been partially observed and conflict continues, the IRC said.

More than one in four of the country's population have been forced from their homes, leaving 600,000 people internally displaced and 600,000 more fleeing to neighboring countries like Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and Chad, according to UN statistics.

The country is also susceptible to bad flooding, and people are at risk of food insecurity and contracting the Ebola virus from the neighboring DRC.

9. Somalia

Somalia has witnessed persistent conflict since the 1990s, leaving large parts of the population internally displaced or having fled to neighboring countries.

Drought in the Horn of Africa region has driven displacements and left the population facing the risk of having no more food.

The country also faces violence from groups including al-Shabab, which has ties to Al Qaeda, and local ISIS affiliates.

In early January, three Americans — one service member and two Department of Defense contractors — were killed in an al-Shabab attack at an airfield in Kenya.

8. Burkina Faso

Humanitarian threats have grown dramatically in the past year in Burkina Faso, which is home to armed conflict carried out by groups associated with Al Qaeda and ISIS.

Those armed groups have also forcibly displaced and called on civilians to join their movements, said the IRC, which has staff on the ground.

The number of internally-displaced people ballooned from under 9,000 at the start of 2018, to 47,000 at the start of 2019, to 56,000 at the end of 2019, the IRC said.

The violence has also forced almost 2,000 schools and 91 healthcare facilities to shut, leaving 270,000 children without formal education and more than 1.2 million people without access to healthcare, the IRC reported.

In 2018 the country was named one of the poorest countries in the world by the International Monetary Fund, which noted that the average person there lives on less than $1,000 a year.

Tantrums, rude parents, and meal prepping: Take a look inside the 13-hour day of an elite nanny for the ultra-wealthy

Posted: 26 Jan 2020 09:23 AM PST

nanny with kidsCREATISTA/Getty Images

  • Nannies who work for rich and powerful families often work 13-hour days filled with household chores and outlandish requests from parents.
  • Business Insider spoke with several nannies across the US to find out what kinds of things they've been asked to do on the job and what they wish their bosses knew.
  • One nanny, who Business Insider is keeping anonymous to protect their identity, noted that their responsibilities include far more than just shuttling the family's children to their afterschool activities. 
  • The nanny also said that diapers, tantrums, and long hours aren't the most difficult part of the job — it's the parents.
  • Business Insider is refraining from publishing the nanny's name or specific details about the family in order to protect her identity. 
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Being a nanny for an ultra-wealthy family may seem like a glamorous job — in reality, it's anything but.

The days are filled with household chores and outlandish requests from parents, one Durham, North Carolina-based elite nanny told Business Insider. She takes care of a four-year-old boy and his infant brother, having been hired by the family through an agency when the older child was born four years ago.

However, the perks and pay are unparalleled. Elite nannies can make up to $150,000 with full benefits, according to Katie Provinziano, the managing director of Los Angeles staffing agency Westside Nannies — but the costs are steep too. As a result, many elite nannies change careers after three to five years, Provinziano told Business Insider.

Keep reading to learn what life as an elite nanny is really like.

She now has 45 minutes to get ready for her 13-hour day of caring for two children: a four-year-old and an infant.

The nanny told Business Insider she works Monday through Friday, about 60 hours a week. She's been with the family for four years.

6:00 a.m.: The nanny drives to the family's house in Durham, North Carolina.

When the nanny arrives, she lets herself in, as all of the family members are still asleep.

First, the nanny lets the family's dogs out and cooks breakfast before waking up the family's oldest son to get him ready for school.

That process is usually interrupted when the infant wakes up. The baby will immediately need a bottle and a diaper change.

7:45 a.m.: The parents and older child leave for the day, giving the nanny time to focus on chores.


The mother is a doctor and the father is the CEO of a local corporation, the nanny told Business Insider.

After they leave, the nanny then turns to household chores while keeping an eye on the baby. She uses the time to do the family's laundry, tidy up their house, cook lunch for that afternoon, and prepare a few extra meals to serve later in the week.

She also will take a break to play with the baby and take him for a short walk. Spending so much quality time with the kids is both the best and worst parts of the job, the nanny told Business Insider.

Buying pet food at Costco saves me over $500 a year, and my animals love it, too

Posted: 26 Jan 2020 09:22 AM PST

bethany mccamish catsBethany McCamish

  • My partner and I got our first Costco membership five years ago, and it has changed the way we shop for pet food.
  • With two cats and a huge dog, we go through a lot of food, and shopping at Costco saves us about $500 a year compared to other major retailers.
  • Costco's Kirkland Signature-brand food is very similar to Diamond Naturals' food, and we pay about $0.77 per pound in our local Costco compared to $1.75 a pound for a nearly identical Diamond food on Amazon.
  • You can use the Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi to earn 2% back on eligible in-store and online purchases »

The day my partner and I purchased a Costco membership five years ago was like a rite of passage to adulthood. It was a commitment, but we haven't regretted it for a second, especially since we save a ton of cash on pet supplies.

We have one large borzoi (a dog), a hairless Sphynx, and a bengal (both cats). It's a full house. We would do anything for our pets, as they are part of the family, so we care a lot about the food they eat and the treats they get for being good (and adorable).

The drawings' resemblance to the superstars is uncanny, while the Disney-inspired elements of the reimaginings make the recreations truly magical.

There's a simple way to put on a duvet cover that takes less than 5 minutes

duvet 12Samantha Grindell/Insider

  • Changing a duvet cover is often a hated household chore, as it's difficult and time-consuming to get the cover and comforter to align.
  • But there's a stress-free method to get a duvet cover onto your comforter that takes less than five minutes.
  • The secret is to roll the duvet and cover together like a burrito, as it prevents them from bunching.
  • Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

First, turn your duvet cover inside out.

Samantha Grindell/Insider

The cover has to be inside out at the beginning of the process, as you'll end up reversing it when you roll it later.

Next, lay the cover on your mattress with the mouth at the end of your bed.

Samantha Grindell/Insider

You could also lay it on the floor, but if it's raised, your mattress will be easier to reach.

Lay the comforter on top of the duvet cover.

It's important that you line up the edges of the comforter and duvet, as you may run into trouble later if you don't.

After graduation, she volunteered for the late Republican Sen. Bob Bennet  and later for Mitt Romney's 2007 presidential campaign. "I love politics and I love the Republican Party," she says. 

Yet despite a long and active history in Republican politics, Suzy refused to vote for Donald Trump, the party's 2016 nominee. Her faith is a large reason why. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Suzy found Trump's personal behavior to be inconsistent with her religious values. It was a deal breaker.

I ate similar meals at McDonald's and Carl's Jr. and saw why one is the dominant burger chain

Posted: 26 Jan 2020 08:04 AM PST

McDonald's Big MacIrene Jiang / Business Insider

  • Carl's Jr. and McDonald's are both burger-focused fast-food chains, but one is much bigger than the other.
  • I went to both chains to eat their most famous burgers and to see why one had such a big brand advantage over the other.
  • I found that the food wasn't the deciding factor: Carl's Jr. had a slightly better burger and much better fries, but McDonald's remains the more beloved brand.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

What happens to a brand when it's forced to change its identity?

Sure, there's that little golden star. But what Carl's Jr. is often known for is its controversial 2000s advertising strategy, which relied on skimpily clad supermodels taking big, suggestive bites of oversized burgers.

But after sex-sells advertising went out of fashion, Carl's Jr. never really found a new identity. Meanwhile McDonald's, its biggest competitor in the fast-food world, successfully rebounded from the damage its reputation suffered from "Fast Food Nation" and "Supersize Me."

So what makes McDonald's the burger of the world and Carl's Jr. just another fast-food burger chain? I set out to find out by eating similar meals at both chains. Here's what I found:

I stopped by a Carl's Jr. in LAX on a flight from Los Angeles to New York.

At a Sunday press conference, Ma said someone with the virus could show no symptoms they have the coronavirus anytime between a day and 14 days, CBS News previously reported. During that time, an asymptomatic person is also infectious and could spread the coronavirus to others, Ma said, which makes it difficult to stop its spread.

20 industries job seekers should stay away from if they value stability and financial security

Posted: 26 Jan 2020 08:00 AM PST

USPSAP Photo/The Republic, Joel Philippsen

  • It's a new year and a new decade, and many Americans are likely to be looking for a new job.
  • We've assembled a list of industries that may not be the brightest prospects for job seekers.
  • Using Bureau of Labor Statistics data, we found 20 industries that employ a large number of people in occupations that are likely to shrink in the 2020s.
  • The auto, textiles, and apparel manufacturing industries, as well as the US Postal Service, all rely heavily on occupations that may decline dramatically in the next decade.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

January is a time when many people are looking for new jobs. Here are some industries they may want to avoid.

We took a look at government projections for employment over the next decade to see what industries might not be ideal choices for job seekers in 2020.

Every two years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes projections for how employment in different job categories in the US is likely to grow or shrink over the next decade. The BLS also publishes annual estimates of how many people in various jobs are employed in different industries.

Combining together projections for employment change for different occupations between 2018 and 2028 (and the mix of occupations in each industry as of 2018), we found 20 industries that employ a lot of people in careers that are projected to decline rapidly.

Several parts of the auto, textile, and apparel industries show up on the list. These industries employ thousands or even hundreds of thousands of workers in occupational groups that are likely to shed positions over the next decade.

20. Business support services

Guillermo Legaria/Getty Images

The business support services industry is a wide category that includes various business-to-business service providers, like telemarketing services, collections agencies, and document preparation services. The industry employs a large number of mid-skilled clerical occupations that are projected to shrink over the next decade, including telemarketers, switchboard operators, and bill and account collectors.

19. Household appliance manufacturing

Associated Press

About a quarter of the 62,620 people working in the household appliance manufacturing industry were assemblers and fabricators, an occupation projected to shrink by 11.8% over the next decade.

18. Rubber product manufacturing


The rubber product manufacturing industry employs large numbers of workers in various industrial occupations that are projected to decline over the next decade. The industry employed 22,770 tire builders, an occupation that BLS expects will have an employment drop of 9.2% by 2028.

  • Terri Daniel is a clinical chaplain, certified trauma professional, and end-of-life educator certified in death, dying, and bereavement by the Association of Death Education and Counseling.
  • When her 16-year-old son died in 2006, she realized that the prevailing American imagery around death was violent and scary, so she began researching different death traditions.
  • Eight months after her son died peacefully at home, she moved across the country and became a hospice volunteer, and began training to become an interfaith chaplain.
  • After accumulating degrees related to religion, death, dying, and grief, she's learned that death and grief are medicalized in America — and that it's not something you "recover" from.

It's not the kind of career you dream about as a kid. It's not glamorous like an astronaut or a rock star, and it's not easy to explain when someone asks what you do for a living. If you're self-employed like I am, there's no 401(k) or vacation pay, and you work seven days a week. But the good news is that there's no glass ceiling, and no age discrimination (maturity is an asset).
