Donald Trump Gave Actor Charlie Sheen Fake Platinum and Diamond Cufflinks as Early Wedding Gift

When actor Charlie Sheen was a guest on The Graham Norton Show, he told about the moment when Donald Trump gave Sheen and his former wife Brooke Mueller an early wedding gift – platinum and diamond cufflinks by Harry Winston – that turned out to be fake six months later upon closer examination.

Six months later, Sheen says he got a jewellery appraiser to take a closer look at the cufflinks.

"She took the loupe, spent about four seconds and kind of recoiled from it - much like people do from Trump," he said. "She says, 'In their finest moment, this is cheap pewter and bad zirconias.' And they're stamped 'Trump.'

"I just thought, what does this really say about the man that he said, 'Here's a great wedding gift,' and it's just a bag of dog s**t?"

The City of Fairfield: Iowa's 'Silicorn Valley' Is One of the State's Fastest-growing Cities

One of the fastest-growing cities in Iowa is the "Transcendental Meditation" town Fairfield – also known as Iowa's 'Silicorn Valley' due to its many technology startups – that still prospers while surrounding cities don't.

This southeast Iowa city is known as a magnet for practitioners of Transcendental Meditation at Maharishi University of Management, who flocked here since the 1970s. Fairfield was able to capitalize on that unique niche, building a surprisingly metropolitan quality of life.

While Fairfield is home to 1,000 fewer jobs than it had 15 years ago, state figures show employers have rebounded in the last five years, adding nearly 700 jobs between 2010 and 2015. During that time, Fairfield went from 714 employers to 751, according to Iowa Workforce Development.

'The Black Box': Swedish Rock Band Terra's Music Video Directed by Ossian Melin

The music video for the excellent song "Svarta lådan" (The Black Box), taken from the album "Terrarism" (Spotify link), by Swedish noise rock band Terra includes a very lightly dressed Alexander Skarsgård. The video was directed by Swedish artist Ossian Melin, who previously has worked with Mando Diao.

A great song and video that I wish will reach far beyond the borders of Sweden.
