Given how much time we (hopefully) spend in the shower and how taken-for-granted it is as a (hopefully) daily ritual, it's easy to overlook how, well, gross it can get. If you’re someone like me who’s used to buying cheap shower liners that quickly get moldy and thrown into the trash (and then, unfortunately, our landfills), look no further than Amazon’s No. 1 bestselling Liba shower liner. It’s mold- and mildew-resistant, eco-friendly and now costs a mere $12 (down from $17).
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
That durability and mold/mildew protection means that your Liba liner will last way longer than the two or three months than cheapo dollar-store varieties. FYI: It runs a little large, but that helps water from splashing out of the tub.
Don’t just take my word for it, though. This curtain liner has developed a massive following on Amazon — massive as in more than 139,000 five-star reviewers.
“You shouldn’t be disgusted when you take a shower,” said one smart shopper. “My previous shower curtain was disgusting. I allowed it to accumulate mildew and soap film until it was physically revolting to take a shower. I shower daily (sometimes more than once), and after several weeks the LIBA is just as clear, clean and fresh as the day it was hung. Plus, I love that it's totally clear and lets the bathroom light in. Talk about illuminating!”
"This is a win, win, win: looks good, water-repellent, easy to clean..." gushed another, who added, "This curtain has heft to keep from flowing upward from outside air currents." Don't you hate when that happens?
We'll save the best and most beautifully simple testimonial for last. "Perfect!" said this devotee. "Love it."
ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece is receiving European assistance for the summer wildfire season, with the first group of firefighters arriving in Athens.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York lawmakers began a special legislative session Thursday with the intent of limiting the proliferation of firearms in public after the Supreme Court gutted the state’s century-old handgun licensing law. The state is overhauling its rules for carrying guns after the court decided that ordinary citizens had a right to arm themselves in public for self-defense, something New York had limited mostly to people working in law enforcement or security. New rules being rushed t
Hundreds of people turned out for the final leg of a four-month march from Vancouver to Ottawa by a Canadian soldier charged with criticizing federal vaccine mandates while in uniform.

MARSEILLE, France — Having led Marseille back to the Champions League and united the hard-to-please fans behind him, coach Jorge Sampaoli left the team's preseason preparations in tatters when he quit on Friday. After Marseille announced his departure, Sampaoli claimed his objectives were not met by the club — even though there was seemingly no bitterness between him and club president Pablo Longoria. It seemed to be simply a matter of principle since Sampaoli didn't even ask for compensation. “
MONTREAL — A Quebec housing advocacy group says it's worried there will be a record number of households left without somewhere to live on the province’s July 1 moving day. “On the eve of July 1, in Quebec, we count 750 renter households that have not found housing,” said Véronique Laflamme, a spokeswoman for the Front d'action populaire en réaménagement urbain, in an interview. That estimate is based on requests for aid received by municipal housing offices in the province, Laflamme said, and c

"It means a whole lot," said Ismail Subair. "It's a big thing to be

HONG KONG (Reuters) -There is no reason to change Hong Kong's "one country, two systems" formula of governance, Chinese President Xi Jinping said on a rare visit to the global financial hub after swearing in the city's new leader, John Lee, on Friday. Britain returned Hong Kong to Chinese rule on July 1, 1997, with Beijing promising wide-ranging autonomy, unfettered individual rights and judicial independence at least until 2047. China's critics accuse authorities of trampling on those freedoms, unavailable on the authoritarian mainland, with a sweeping national security law imposed by Beijing on the city in 2020 after mass pro-democracy protests the year before.
MILAN (AP) — A year after Qatar-owned beIN Sports spurned the bidding process over concerns about the Italian league’s close relationship with Saudi Arabia, Serie A finally assigned its television rights for the Middle East to Abu Dhabi Media and Starzplay. The league announced a three-year deal worth a total of $79 million — $23 million the first season, $25 million the second and $31 million the third. “But the figures could increase based on revenue share and, according to potential audience
Nearly 60 years ago to the day, Saskatchewan doctors went on strike in protest against what would become Canada's universal health care system. Now, documents obtained through an access to information request show that in the 1960s, activists in favour of the idea that would become medicare were being surveilled by RCMP, amid fears they may be communist sympathizers. The Saskatchewan Medical Care Insurance Act came into force on July 1, 1962. Years later, it would become the template for the nat
