  We're live at Samsung's CES 2020 keynote! Samsung's press conferences have always been all about spectacle, and few places are more spectacular than Las Vegas this time of year. We're expecting a few more surprises this time than usual, though. Yes, you'd be right to expect a slew of TV announcements, not to mention some updated laptops and a few smart appliances, too. What's less conventional is the fact that Samsung already announced mid-range versions of their flagship phones, invited us to yet another smartphone launch event, and has basically confirmed its plans to start making life-like virtual people.

Three lines in red, reading “Free Hong-Kong” were painted on the rock on which the bronze sits, next to the same text in white.

Police were seen searching for clues in the the area with flashlights and a dog after the pre-dawn vandalism was reported. No one has been apprehended,

The Little Mermaid was created in tribute to the Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen. Sitting on a rock at the entrance of the Copenhagen harbor since 1913, she has been a popular target for vandals, who have blown her off her perch, beheaded her and painted her.

In 2010, the statue was the centerpiece of Denmark's official pavilion at the World Exhibition in Shanghai for a six-month period.

Curvaceous mermaid mural on mayor's home stirs trouble in small North Carolina town .
 A mural depicting a curvaceous and scantily clad mermaid is causing trouble for the newly elected mayor of a North Carolina beach town. The painting in question is on the side of Oak Island Mayor Ken Thomas’ home, and some say he “incited” citizens by making the seemingly innocent mistake of asking people what they thought of it.
