Gareth Bale celebrated with a flag that read 'Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order' after he helped secure his country's qualification to Euro 2020
Getty/Athena Pictures Gareth Bale posed with a flag that read "Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order" after he helped his home country secure its place at UEFA Euro 2020 on Tuesday night. The flag was inspired by former Madrid player Pedja Mijatovic's recent comments, where he told El Larguero he believes Bale's priorities are in order of "Wales, then golf and after that, Real Madrid." Madrid has described Bale's actions as "a joke in very bad taste," according to ESPN, while Madrid Sports called the celebration "unforgivable." Wales beat Hungary 2-0 to book its place at Euro 2020, with Aaron Ramsey scoring both of the goals on the night.  Read more of our soccer coverage here.

10 beauty trends that should disappear by 2020
Steve Granitz / Contributor/Getty,Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic/Getty Some beauty trends that were popular throughout the 2010s haven't exactly aged well.  Although they were popular throughout the 2010s, tanning beds can be dangerous and increase one's risk of developing skin cancer. Graphic, negative-space eyeliner should be left behind since it's not flattering for most eye shapes or for daily wear.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The 2010s welcomed plenty of skin-care, makeup, and hair trends — but not all of them are worth carrying into the 2020s.  Here are 10 beauty trends from the past decade that should be left behind. Tanning beds were especially big in the 2010s, but they're still not a wise idea. Donald Miralle/Getty Tanning beds were a big deal in the early 2010s, especially since major TV shows like MTV's "Jersey Shore" featured a cast of stars who proudly used them on a regular basis. But tanning beds can increase your risk of developing skin cancer and they can prematurely age your skin.  As Dr. Caren Campbell, a board-certified dermatologist based in California, told Insider, "Using a tanning bed leads to increased breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin, which causes signs of premature aging [like] wrinkles, sun spots, and broken blood vessels."   There's a reason thick eyeliner isn't as popular as it once was. Steve Granitz / Contributor/Getty Throughout the early 2010s, many beloved celebrities and TV characters coated their lids with eyeliner, but celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass said this trend is better left in the past. "To nail the extreme eyeliner you need both a specific eye shape and precise application or it can look harsh, raccoon-like, and really unflattering," she told Insider.   Glitter is still trendy, but putting stuff from the craft store on your eyes isn't a great idea. Shutterstock In the 2010s, sparkly eyelids were a popular trend — and some used craft-store glitter to achieve the look.  But as Bass told Insider, craft-store glitter has no place in one's vanity, especially since there are so many sparkly, eye-safe products out there. "Our skin is our biggest organ and it's super absorbent, so we have to be extra mindful of the products we put on it," she said. "Craft glitter is not designed with the delicate eye area in mind, and it can be really damaging — especially if you have sensitive eyes."

Video shows cop lied
A Brooklyn man faced serious jail time for driving his car at a cop. But the attack never happened, writes Radley Balko, a fact revealed by surveillance video that shows the cop lied. The surveillance video at the top of this piece, which was obtained by an investigator for [Pedro] Barbosa’s lawyer, backs all of this up. Barbosa did drive off, but at no time was either officer at risk of being struck by Barbosa’s car. But [NYPD officer Michael] Bergman would later tell the grand jury an entirely different story. “The defendant locked eyes with me, turned the car into reverse, floored the vehicle into reverse approximately seven feet,” Bergman said. “As I’m still yelling, the defendant put it in drive, turned the vehicle towards me to the point where I was in between his headlights, and if I didn’t jump out of the way, I would have been under his vehicle.” ... The video above shows that almost none of that is true. Barbosa never put the car in reverse, never accelerated in reverse, and Bergman was never “between his headlights.” Local prosecutors released a list of NYPD officers it considers untrustworthy, police unions are enraged, but that video doesn't lie. Bergman pleaded guilty to perjury and was fired. Read the rest

Qantas said Will.i.am could face a lawsuit unless he retracts tweets identifying a flight attendant who he accused of racism
LOIC VENANCE/AFP via Getty Images Qantas said it would provide support to one of its flight attendants should she choose to take legal action against Will.i.am after the rapper publicly accused her of racial discrimination and posted a photo of her on Twitter. "Absent a retraction, and if the crew member wanted to take the matter further, we'd certainly be willing to provide legal support for them to do this," a spokesperson for the airline told CNN. The rapper told his 12.8 million Twitter followers that he and his friends were singled out by the "#RacistFlightattendant" during a trip from Brisbane to Sydney. "I'm sorry to say me and my group have experienced the worse service due to an overly aggressive flight attendant. I don't want to believe she racist but she clearly aimed all her frustrations at the people of color only," he wrote. He claims the incident took place after he failed to hear a routine PA announcement, which advised passengers to store electronics. Representatives for Qantas and Will.i.am did not immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

8 not-so-obvious signs you're in a toxic workplace and need to make a change — or get out
Morsa Images/Getty Images If appreciation is absent, accountability is elusive at best, there's a raving lunatic of a boss, and everyone's on LinkedIn during work, you might be stuck in a toxic workplace. There are also quieter signs that can tip you off to toxic workplace culture, according to Scott Mautz, the author of "Find the Fire" and "Make it Better." If employees don't share their thoughts during meetings or respectfully dissent, changes in the workplace should be made. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Anyone can spot the obvious signs of a toxic workplace — appreciation is absent, accountability is elusive at best, there's a raving lunatic of a boss, everyone's on LinkedIn during work. But what if the signs of toxicity are far more subtle? Might you be leading, working in, or about to enter an environment that is quietly rotting from the inside? Leaders need to be able to spot toxic undertones of a workplace so they can address them (unless they're what makes it toxic). Employees need to be able to identify a corrosive environment so they can avoid or leave it, or know how to contribute to solutions to fix it. I've experienced enough workplace environments over a 30-plus-year career and interviewed enough uninspired employees (in doing research for "Find the Fire") to know how to spot even the quieter signs of not-so-great cultures. Watch out for these eight subtle symptoms so you know what you're getting yourself into, or what you need to get out of.1. You find out people's true thoughts in the meeting after the meeting Getty Images This used to drive me nuts. You'd be in a meeting with a broad group of people where a decision was to be made or something important was on the agenda. No one would say much of anything or they'd say a whole lot of nothing. Then came the meeting after the meeting, where several people who were in attendance at the prior meeting huddle to talk about what they really think or to bash the decision made that they didn't speak up about. 2. There's too little dissension 10'000 Hours/Getty Images This one is related to the above but refers to team meetings where the boss is met with very little pushback or where very few people even speak. Do you know of any scenario where a team leader holding a soliloquy is a sign of a healthy team? Of course not. It's a sign that people don't feel free to speak their minds to an overbearing boss. 3. Only one type of person gets promoted Aston Villa /Getty Images Maybe those promoted are all cut from the same cloth as the boss who does the promoting or maybe it's only those who are shameless self-promoters. Whatever the case, it's a sign that bias runs rampant, the wrong things are valued, and that diversity is ignored.

These banks offer the most desirable mobile features across categories
Business Insider Intelligence Business Insider Intelligence is announcing the US banks that earned the No 1 spot for offering the most desirable mobile banking features in each category of our 2019 US Mobile Banking Competitive Edge Study, a research report available exclusively to enterprise subscribers. This announcement follows a previous note that examined the top five banks in terms of overall scores. To learn more about getting access to this report, email Senior Account Executive Haydn Melia at hmelia@businessinsider.com, or inquire about our enterprise memberships. To help banks attract and retain the large base of mobile-oriented customers, our 2019 US Mobile Banking Competitive Edge Study selected 37 sought-after mobile banking capabilities — 18 of which were added to the study this year — and ranked them according to how valuable 2,000 respondents said they are. Next, we determined which of the top 20 US banks and credit unions lead in offering the mobile banking features customers crave. Our study highlighted six important categories of mobile banking features that are key for banks to differentiate on to attract customers: security and control, account management, digital money management, alerts, transfers, and customer service. Each of the categories was weighted based on the percentage of respondents who said it would be "extremely valuable" if a bank offered the features in the category.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:A genetic testing firm launched an atrial fibrillation research app on Apple devicesA proposed German law would require Apple to enable third parties to use its NFC technologyThe UK Labour Party plans to nationalize British Telecom

Scientists recorded the sound of Earth's magnetic field during a solar storm for the first time — and it sounds like eerie chirps
Vlasiator team, University of Helsinki Earth's molten, rotating inner core generates a magnetic field around the planet. This magnetic field, or magnetosphere, protects us from solar winds and radiation. The European Space Agency just released a new video that reveals what our planet's electromagnetic waves sounds like when hit by solar wind. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. In space, no one can hear you scream because sound can't travel in a vacuum. But if we convert electromagnetic activity into sound, space suddenly becomes a very noisy place. Our Earth is no exception; specifically, in and around the magnetic field generated by Earth's molten core. This barrier, called a magnetosphere, is thought to be one of the vital ingredients for a life-supporting planet, because it protects us from the harsh radiation of the solar wind. And the stronger the wind, the louder the magnetosphere sings.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Earth's north magnetic pole is on the move — here's what will happen when our poles flipSee Also:What if the Earth stopped orbiting the Sun?Here's what you're actually seeing when you spot a meteor showerHere's where you should really go to stay safe during an earthquakeSEE ALSO: Earth's magnetic north pole is moving too fast for experts to keep up.
