High-resolution genomic map gives scientists unprecedented view of brain development

Researchers have created a massive database of the changes in gene activity of individual cells in the cerebellum during embryonic development and immediately after birth. The analysis of thousands of brain cells isolated from mice offers researchers a high-resolution map that enables scientists to view the detailed genomic changes cells undergo as the cerebellum wires its neural circuitry.

T.I. Gives A Year’s Worth Of Lunch Money To Student Denied Food For Petty Reason

T.I. took a break from his hustle to help a high school student in Florida recently. The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, donated a year’s worth of lunch money to a sophomore that was reportedly denied food at school because she was 15 cents short last week.

News about the incident involving Danielle Aiken, a student at University High School in Volusia County, has sparked outrage, with the lyricist and actor taking to social media to address it.

“This s**t is despicable!!! This is the kinda s**t that deters kids from coming to school. I’d like to take care of her school lunch for the year. I hate to hear this type of thing happening to our children. Petty a** … poor excuse for a grown person,” T.I. tweeted.

Aiken was not allowed to eat lunch in her school cafeteria on her first day of school on Aug. 14 because her account was underfunded by the small amount, the teen’s mom Kimberly Aiken told CBS affiliate WKMG. The meal was thrown in the trash, her mother said.

“She puts her food on the tray, gets to the front, gives her [account] number to the cashier, and she says, ‘Well, you owe 15 cents,’” the mother said. “My daughter said she didn’t have any money, so the cashier took her food. That’s the big thing — it’s eat breakfast, lunch, so that they can make sure that they’re doing good on their work. But then you starve my child?”

A statement was given by Roger Edgcomb, a spokesman for Volusia County Public Schools, in response to the incident.

“The school is always willing to work with students and families as needed,” Edgcomb said. “The school will be contacting the family directly to help resolve this issue.”

After Insulting Police Entrapment Scheme, Rapper Vic Mensa Gives Back

The Chicago police department recently came under fire for setting up a sting operation that many said was a form of entrapment. The operation was a joint effort between the police and Northern Southern Railroad and involved parking unlocked, unmanned trucks filled with sneakers as bait to catch thieves.

Only three people ended up swiping shoes. A viral video of the so-called ‘bait trucks’ sparked outrage and the railroad company has since apologized.



In an effort to diffuse the situation, native Chicago rapper and Roc Nation signee Vic Mensa announced that alongside his SaveMoneySaveLife foundation, 5,000 sneakers will be given away to kids in need at the same location where the “bait truck” incident initially took place. Mensa has asked for the support of shoe companies, professional athletes, and other high profile public figures to make a contribution to this initiative.

The rapper also tweeted an Amazon.com link where anyone can donate by purchasing sneakers directly that will go toward the drive.

Laundi Keeseagle, who serves as the executive director of Vic Mensa’s foundation was quoted as saying, “We wanted to do something in response, but have a positive response.”

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, an official date of the giveaway event has not yet been determined but will be announced once the sneaker goal has been reached.

Vic Mensa is taking a grassroots approach to alleviate an issue that directly affected his community in the Southside of Chicago.  Increasingly, entertainers are using their influence for social impact. Other notable Chicago rappers including Twista, Chance the Rapper, and Common have also given back to the city.

Chance the Rapper has been particularly active in giving back. Last December, he hosted a holiday party at The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago to raise money for homeless children.

His organization, SocialWorks, raised $ 2.2 million as of 2017—funds set aside for the Chicago Public School system.

‘Pokemon Go’ gives players the chance to catch Celebi in new research task

Pokemon Go Celebi

Pokemon Go has flourished in recent months, thanks in no small part to the many substantial updates that Niantic has rolled out since the year began. Few updates have had quite as big an impact as research tasks though, bringing added depth to the game by requiring players to complete specific actions in order to unlock major rewards. Now, five months after introducing those tasks, Pokemon Go is getting a new Special Research on Celebi.

If you’ve played Pokemon Go at all this summer, you’ve probably seen the Special Research on Mew, which involves completing a series of difficult tasks over the course of weeks in order to catch the Mythical Pokemon Mew. A second Mythical Pokemon will join in on the fun with its own set of tasks starting Monday, August 20th.

Gina Rodriguez Gives Fans a Closer Look at Her Off Massive Engagement Ring From Joe LoCiero

Now that Gina Rodriguez’s engagement to Joe LoCiero is no longer a secret, she’s showing off her impressive rock!

The 34-year-old Jane the Virgin star flashed her engagement ring in a birthday shoutout to her fiancé.

“Happy Birthday to my King, ❤” Rodriguez captioned the photo, which shows LoCiero wearing an adorable smile.

At the bottom of the shot, Rodriguez, whose face isn’t in the photo, can be seen sweetly holding LoCiero’s hand with her sparkler sitting front and center.

Rodriguez confirmed her engagement to PEOPLE on Tuesday, saying “I am ! He’s the best. He’s the f—— best. We’ve been engaged for like a month — I’ve kept it a secret for a while.”

RELATED ARTICLE: ‘Real Love’: Gina Rodriguez Celebrates 6 Months with Boyfriend Joe LoCicero

Before her announcement, Rodriguez sparked speculation when she posted a photo of herself with a ring on that finger while on vacation in Mexico in July.

“‘They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.’– Frida,” Rodriguez captioned the photo quoting Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

Rodriguez and LoCiero first met in 2016 after LoCiero made an appearance on Jane the Virgin.

The lovebirds have managed to keep their relationship pretty low-key, and Rodriguez plans on keeping it that way.

“I don’t even really want to say it’s happening,” Rodriguez said.

“I just want to live! I think there’s a huge blessing in the fact that people care. That’s a beautiful thing, so that feels really good.”

“But another part of me wants to keep a little something that’s just mine, ’cause there’s not too many things I have like that anymore,” Rodriguez added.

Why Having Sex Gives You That ‘After Glow’

Adoring Couple Embracing in Bed

Source: Digital Vision. / Getty

You know that loving, happy feeling you have after sex? Well, it’s not all in your head. Research says that having sex with your partner bring a 48-hour ‘after glow’ feeling to couples, according to Telegraph. 

Scientists asked couples to keep sex diaries to record how many times they had sex and relationship satisfaction.

Research found that feelings of intimacy and happiness in a relationship lasted for two days after sex, but began to fade after three.

The ‘after glow’ effect could be linked to the hormone oxytocin that is released during sex.

Scientists believe the biological reason for the lingering sense of connection between couples is linked to men’s sperm count. When a man has frequent sex, his sperm count diminishes, and it takes approximately 2-3 days to restore his swimmers to maximum capacity. Researchers believe the evolutionary purpose of the ‘after glow’ is to keep partners together until his count increases.

“This is the first research to quantify the length of the sexual afterglow and to examine its benefits,” said head researcher on the project Dr  Andrea Meltzer, of Florida State University,

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Finale Gives Trump Resistance Much Needed Hope

George Kraychyk

Season two of The Handmaid’s Tale has been a tough hang.

From the threat of a mass hanging at Fenway Park in the premiere, to the violent rape of our heroine in the 10th episode, to, most recently, the public drowning of 15-year-old Eden and her forbidden lover, the show’s dystopian landscape was often too brutal to bear.

We were granted a glimmer of hope of when Elisabeth Moss’ June (can we please stop calling her Offred now?) heard Oprah Winfrey’s comforting voice coming through her car radio from “somewhere in the Great White North.” Of course, moments later that hope was dashed when June ultimately failed to bust through the garage door and escape.

Scandinavian top blogger Helena-Reet: Vanity gives money for the clever and tooks it away from the vain

OHMYGOSSIP – NordenBladet & OHMYGOSSIP-sites developer Helena-Reet Ennet is the blogger who is weekly in Finnish and Swedish news, who has more social media followers than no other girl or company in Scandinavia and who “tells the ugly truth” directly to your face. Metropoli.net talked with her about vanity.

– Vanity blinds people! People want to be “VIP” and “ESPECIAL”, but the truth is that VIP and special are only those who control their own lives. The old school well known “Snob-effect”* is the key how people get rich. It is not a secret, that if you want to make money – “approve a fool” and “pressure their vanity”! Sounds very cruel, but this is how it works. Vanity is the main thing which gives money for the clever and takes it away from the vain and foolish. And this works, always and in all life situations. Trust me!

– Don’t let others think/decide what is cool, original or nice. Make your own decisions! Yeah, I have said it thousand times, but I’ll tell it again. You do not need to waste a single penny to designer clothes/bags/widgets, especially for those you actually do not like but your “cool rich” friend has. Start decide yourself what is cool. If you truly think you like it, buy it, but if your idol has it and you do not like it, leave it.

– Just an example… you have a fat ass (like I do), believe me, it does not matter if you wear Armani, YSL, Gucci jeans or no-name trousers… your butt looks the same – fat – the “names” do not make your ass look better! Better try to find trousers what fit you well, no matter what their price/name is. Choose what is good for you and what you like! Show some personality!

– Imagine that there are things and no prices — what would you choose then? What would you choose if you do not know anything about the brands and names? It is difficult, I know.  People are very much affected what VIP’s or very rich think and wear –  that is “used to be” generally cool. Make your own decisions! Use your own head, otherwise you are a cheap and easy channel for business-branches, who uses you. I promise you, once you’ll find this confidence in you, your life is a thousand times more happy and successful!

_______________________________________
*In microeconomics, the snob effect is a phenomenon referring to the situation where the demand for a certain good by individuals of a higher income level is inversely related to the demand for the good by individuals of a lower income level. The “snob effect” contrasts most other microeconomic models, in that the demand curve can have a positive slope, rather than the typical negatively sloped demand curve of normal goods.

This situation is derived by the desire to own unusual, expensive or unique goods. These goods usually have a high economic value, but low practical value. The less of an item available, the higher its snob value. Examples of such items with general snob value are rare works of art, designer clothing, and sports cars.

In all these cases, one can debate whether they meet the snob value criterion, which in itself may vary from person to person. A person may reasonably claim to purchase a designer garment because of a certain threading technique, longevity, and fabric. While this is true in some cases, the desired effect can often be achieved by purchasing a less-expensive version from a reputable brand. Often these high-end items end up as closeout items in discount stores or online retailers where they may be offered at deep discounts from original price, bringing into question the true value of the product. Ultimately, wealthy consumers can be lured by superficial factors such as rarity, celebrity representation and brand prestige.

Collectors within a specific field can suffer from snob effect, searching for the rarest and often most expensive collectibles. Such examples are classic automobiles, stamps and coins.

Queen Gives Instrument of Consent to Harry and Meghan’s Marriage

She approves! Queen Elizabeth II has given her Instrument of Consent, which is her formal approval for Prince Harry to wed Meghan Markle, just one week ahead of their May 19 nuptials.

Buckingham Palace shared an image of the handwritten document on Saturday, May 12. “NOW KNOW YE that We have consented and do by these Presents signify Our Consent to the contracting of Matrimony between Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales, K.C.V.O., and Rachel Meghan Markle,” the document reads.

The Instrument of Consent was drafted by the Crown Office and is sealed with the Great Seal of the Realm, and the Queen’s signature, “Elizabeth R,” is featured at the top right of the document. The coronet for Prince Harry, 33, is on the lower left side and the Commonwealth symbol can be found on the lower right side of the document. The design to the right of the text also includes a rose, which is the national flower of the United States. Next to the rose, there are two golden poppies, the flower of California, where Markle, 36, was born. The document will be presented to the pair after the wedding.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the day they announced their engagement News Licensing / MEGA TheMegaAgency.com

The written approvals are part of the Royal Marriages Act of 1772, which legally requires all of King George II’s direct descendants to receive the monarch’s consent in marriage or the union is considered to be invalid. The Parliament act reads: “A person who (when the person marries) is one of the six persons next in line of succession to the crown must obtain the consent of Her Majesty before marrying.” Harry falls under this category since he is sixth in line for the throne, behind his father Prince Charles, brother Prince William, nephew Prince George, niece, Princess Charlotte, and newborn nephew Prince Louis.

The Queen previously gave her consent for her grandson to marry Markle after a meeting at Buckingham Palace in March. “I declare my consent to a contract of matrimony between my most dearly beloved grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle, which I consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the books of the Privy Council,” the Queen said in a statement at the time.

The royal and the Suits alum announced that they were engaged in November 2017 and will be tying the knot at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle next weekend.

Virginia Woman Gives Birth In Turkish Hotel Room Using Google To Help

Instagram Photo

A Virginia woman used her motherly instincts to safely give birth alone in a hotel room in Istanbul, Turkey. In her now viral Twitter thread, Tia Freeman details she found out she was pregnant late in her third trimester after her birth control failed. By the time she discovered she was expecting, the mom-to-be had already booked a trip to the Middle East and decided to take the voyage anyway.

On the flight, Freeman started experiencing contractions, and had to endure the early pains of labor while shuffling through international customs.

Once Freeman arrived at her hotel, she began Googling and Youtubing videos on how to give birth. She filled a tub, got towels together, and managed to give birth to a baby boy. She ended up cutting the umbilical cord with knives and shoelaces.

Get into the brave tale below:

‘Black Panther’ Gives Oakland New Life

Over the past few weeks, Black Panther has been all the rage, but let’s talk about what it has done for the city of Oakland. During the actual release, the Oakland A’s sponsored a screening that was showcased to 200 Oakland youth who otherwise may not have had the opportunity to view it. These organizations included East Oakland Youth Development Center, Boys and Girls Club of Oakland, YMCA of the East Bay, and Oakland Unified School District’s African American Male Achievement students.

Before the film, there was a panel discussion moderated by the Oakland A’s Vice President of External Affairs Taj Tashombe with participants that included Jason Mayden, co-founder of Super Heroic; Elisha Greenwell, founder of Black Joy Parade; Ashara Ekundayo, co-founder and chief creative officer at Impact Hub Oakland; myself; and Devin Lars, CEO and founder of Kurieo Media, and believe me, some gems were dropped.

“Our children are watching. If we walk out of here and shrink, they are going to learn to shrink so we can’t teach them to shirk anymore,” said Mayden. “I think we need to support each other. It’s really easy to say be black every day, go to work black every day. That’s really hard when no one else is black. All it takes is one other black person in your work to be like, you’re good,” said Greenwall.

This screening brought out Oakland A’s legends Rickey Henderson and Vida Blue and local elected officials, small business owners, and the local community, putting them all under one roof, something that the city hasn’t seen in a long time.

Beyond that, Disney is giving back to the community. According to a recent post, in light of the extreme success from Black Panther, Disney has decided to donate $ 1 million to expand STEM programs in Oakland, along with 11 other areas, including Harlem, Chicago, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and others.

And, of course, we can’t forget the representation in the film itself. Yes, Ryan Coogler! You put on for the town.

Florida Victim’s Mom Gives Tearful Plea on CNN: ‘Action! We Need It Now!’

The mother of a victim of the Florida shooting gave an emotional plea Thursday afternoon for President Trump to “do something” about gun violence, reducing a CNN anchor to tears.

19-year-old Nikolas Cruz allegedly shot and killed 17 people on Wednesday afternoon at Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland. Law-enforcement officials have yet to establish a motive, but a Florida white-supremacist group claimed Cruz had trained with them last year.

In a taped HLN interview that re-aired on CNN, Lori Alhadeff—mother of victim Alyssa Alhadeff, 15—called on the president to reduce school shootings by enhancing security at schools and curbing access to firearms.

Victoria Beckham Gives an Update on the Rumored Spice Girls Reunion Tour

Update, February 10: Victoria Beckham may have just set the record straight about the Spice Girls Reunion Tour rumors that began circulating earlier this week. According to British Vogue, the designer declared “I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour,” at a preview of her F/W 18 collection today. But while a tour isn’t in the works right now, Beckham didn’t dismiss the idea of something happening down the line. “You know, there’s so much bad stuff going on, and the Spice Girls were about fun and celebrating individuality,” she said. “I think there’s so much that the brand can do, and it’s such a positive message for young kids. What does that look like in the future? It’s not me in a cat-suit.”

Originally posted on February 7: Remember Victoria Beckham’s mysterious Spice Girls Instagram post last week? We’ve been crossing our fingers that the group had something exciting up their sleeves, and now it appears we know what it is. TMZ reports that a reunion tour is officially happening, with stops in both the UK and the U.S. planned. Because friendship lasts forever, right? 

Although the cult ’90s group has not confirmed the news, TMZ reports that they’re in talks with former manager Simon Fuller and are in the “rough planning” stage, intending to kick off the tour in late summer. Plus, we can reportedly expect new tour merch, but no new music. All we can say is: You can bet we’ll be booking tickets immediately. Can you imagine how good the stage costumes will be? If the news is true, we can’t wait to see what they’ll be wearing during the tour. See you there!

White House Gives Up Trans Military Ban For Now

The Trump administration will no longer try to prevent openly transgender people from joining the military, the Pentagon announced Friday night. The Trump administration previously attempted to delay a Department of Defense policy that would allow openly transgender people to join the military beginning January 1. But two federal courts struck down those efforts efforts. In a statement to Reuters, a DOJ official said that the department would not try to fight the January 1 deadline, but that the Trump administration might still try to block trans troops. “The Department of Defense has announced that it will be releasing an independent study of these issues in the coming weeks,” the official said. “So rather than litigate this interim appeal before that occurs, the administration has decided to wait for DOD’s study and will continue to defend the president’s lawful authority in district court in the meantime.”

Chaka Khan Gives A Makeup Tutorial For Vogue’s Beauty Secret Series

Music legend Chaka Khan shared her diva makeup ritual for Vogue’s YouTube Beauty Secrets series, peep the clip above.

The fashion and beauty icon is concerned about today’s makeup artists — mostly feminine males who overdo it with their makeup brushes, so she chooses to apply her own makeup these days.

“Mostly I taught myself. I have put my makeup on in the back of limousines, on the way to gigs,” she told Vogue magazine.

Chaka said the secret to achieving a proper balance of makeup is by accentuating different parts of her face.

In other words, don’t overdo it! Oftentimes, less is more, ladies.

As noted by essence.com, Chaka’s beauty tips include:

1. Skip false lashes. “I absolutely despise false eyelashes. I can’t work with them I sweat too much,” she says.

2. Forget red lipstick, opt for pink. “I’ve gone off reds and I do the hot pinks, they’re more youthful,” explains Chaka.

3. Never forget powder, ever. “Any time you put on foundation, be sure to go over it with powder,” the diva instructs.

4. Eyeliner can easily take you from day to night. “I’ll take a little more black [eyeliner] and it’s going to make it pop more and be really pretty,” she says.

5. Oh, and don’t forget perfume! “Always spray your favorite perfume, and always look your best,” the singer reminds.

Strictly Come Dancing’s Debbie McGee hits back at claims her ballet training gives her an unfair advantage

STRICTLY’S Debbie McGee has hit back furiously at claims she has too much dance experience to be a fair competitor on Strictly Come Dancing.

The 59-year-old former magician’s assistant received 39 points this week and has left some BBC viewers convinced she’s streets ahead of other contestants like Mollie King, Davood Ghadami and Gemma Atkinson.

Debbie danced a Cats-themed American Smooth this week

Debbie, best-known as Paul Daniels’ widower, has now come out swinging at critics who say her intensive ballet training in her youth and performances throughout her showbiz career have given her the edge.

Talking to the Mail On Sunday, the former Mrs Daniels blasted: ‘The people who say that really have no understanding of dance.

“When I did ballet I stopped as a dancer when I was about 23. That training in a way is a disadvantage because the muscles were trained differently.”

She added: “I haven’t done that for over 30 years.”

WARNING: Use of this image is subject to the terms of use of BBC Pictures' Digital Picture

The dancer says she does not have much more experience than the others[/caption]

In the 1970s, Debbie danced with the Iranian National Ballet and established her own company, Ballet Imaginaire – and continued to practice dance when working with husband Paul for decades.

Now Debbie has been tipped as a hot favourite to win the BBC show and she’s currently locked in a bitter rivalry with the equally strong contender Alexandra Burke.

Her American Smooth to Memory from the musical Cats on Saturday night left her at the top of the leaderboard with Alexandra.

But while Debbie acknowledges that she “makes it look so easy”, she wants to emphasise to viewers that it takes hard work – too much hard work, at times.

She went on: “[Viewers] don’t realise the training I put in and how awful I am on Monday and the progress I make between a Monday and a Saturday. You need to ask Giovanni about that.”

Before this weekend’s shows Debbie had a backstage meltdown over how many hours Giovanni Pernice, her pro partner, was making her train.

And she’s been forced to deny there is romance blossoming between her and the younger Italian after she lost her husband Paul last year.

She said: “People want me to be in a relationship with him and I’m really sorry to disappoint them….

Debbie says it’s flattering that fans think she could be romancing Giovanni

“For a woman of my age it’s very flattering that people think there might be a romance. I do have a little chuckle to myself. We have the greatest working partnership and do have chemistry.

“We are great mates and I think that’s probably more special than if there was anything else going on.”

But fans were certainly given more clues that Mollie King is romancing her partner AJ Pritchard this week when she gave him a special gift and appeared to kiss him during their rumba.

Trump pullback from bipartisan health care fix gives Washington whiplash

HARI SREENIVASAN: Confusion reigns in Washington tonight over an effort to save the subsidies in Obamacare.

Two senators, Republican Lamar Alexander and Democrat Patty Murray, had announced an agreement. Then, the president entered the fray.

Lisa Desjardins has the story.

LISA DESJARDINS: From President Trump and the White House, multiple statements in 24 hours left heads spinning on exactly where he stands on a bipartisan health care fix.

First, positive words yesterday afternoon.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: And they’re coming up, and they’re fairly close to a short-term solution.

LISA DESJARDINS: Then, last night at the conservative Heritage Foundation, a seeming rebuke.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: While I commend the bipartisan work done by senators Alexander and Murray — and I do commend it — I continue to believe Congress must find a solution to the Obamacare mess, instead of providing bailouts to insurance companies.

LISA DESJARDINS: He echoed the same concern this morning on Twitter.

Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer responded on the Senate floor, saying the president is going back on his word and appears confused.

SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER, D-N.Y., Minority Leader: The president ought to know what he is talking about when he tweets about bills, because, on this one, he has no understanding of what it’s about.

LISA DESJARDINS: Finally, this afternoon, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the president is opposed to the deal as it stands now.

SARAH SANDERS, White House Press Secretary: The bill is a step, a good step in the right direction, but it is not a full approach, and we need something to go a little bit further to get on board.

LISA DESJARDINS: The job of untangling it all fell to Republican Senator Lamar Alexander, trying to craft this deal to stabilize health care markets. He spoke with Mr. Trump this morning.

SEN. LAMAR ALEXANDER, R-Tenn.: You know, some people think the president doesn’t know what he’s doing around here. I don’t think that. He told me that he wanted to encourage me, but that he will review it, as I would expect a president to do.

LISA DESJARDINS: Soon after that, the president stressed his main concern.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: If something can happen, that’s fine, but I won’t do anything to enrich the insurance companies.

LISA DESJARDINS: So would the compromise enrich insurers? Let’s look.

The billions in continued subsidies here are to cover co-pays and deductibles for lower-income Americans. Insurance companies are meant to be a kind of middleman. Insurers pay the doctor for those poorer individuals’ costs, and the government sends insurers the subsidies as a kind of repayment.

Without the subsidies, insurers legally still must cover these costs for poor Americans. So, to make up the money, they have made it clear they would raise premiums. And some already are.

Republican Senate sources say the president is worried that insurers could take advantage of that money flow, but Senator Alexander insists the bill has provisions to police them.

So, where do the bill’s chances stand? The president wants some changes. Schumer says all or most Democrats will vote yes. And Alexander, not one to overstate things, says this.

SEN. LAMAR ALEXANDER: I would predict that before end of the year that this agreement in one form or another will become law.

LISA DESJARDINS: For the PBS NewsHour, I’m Lisa Desjardins.

HARI SREENIVASAN: As the confusion played out in Washington, 19 state attorneys general filed suit to continue the health care subsidies under Obamacare. The president announced last week that he will cut off the payments to insurance companies.

The best thing about streaming dongles like the Roku Streaming Stick and Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is that they give you access to all of your favorite content in a compact, affordable package.

‘Gerald’s Game’: A Twisted Rape Fantasy Gives Way to a Complex Study of Domestic Violence

Gerald’s Game, Stephen King’s 1992 novel about a woman who finds herself in perilously restrained circumstances, has long been considered unfilmable. Enter Mike Flanagan, whose prior work (Oculus, Hush) marked him as one of American cinema’s most confident and canny new horror voices, and whose adaptation of King’s tome is one of the most uniquely suspenseful offerings of the year. Premiering exclusively on Netflix Sept. 29, and starring a phenomenal Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood, it’s further confirmation of Flanagan’s expertise at intricately knotty terror—and, also, his gift for orchestrating psychological insanity, with his latest fixated on one woman’s grueling confrontation of unthinkable abuse.

Rookie Football Player Deshaun Watson Gives His First Paycheck to Hurricane Harvey Victims

Deshaun Watson

The 2017 football season marked Houston Texan quarterback Deshaun Watson’s first time playing professional football. So what did he do with that first check? Watson, who is 22 years old, donated his big league bucks to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Watson donated a total of $ 27,353 to three cafeteria workers at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The rookie came into the cafeteria where the women worked to personally deliver the envelopes sealed with red ribbon. The ladies lost their cars and homes as a result of Harvey.

“For what you all do for us every day and never complain, I really appreciate you all, so I wanted to give my first game check to y’all to help y’all out in some type of way,” Watson told the workers who serve meals to the team prior to game time.

“Hopefully that gets you guys back on your feet and anything you all need, I’m always here to help,” he continued.

Senate passes bill that gives $15 billion to Harvey aid, raises debt limit

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly backed a $ 15.3 billion aid package for victims of Harvey, nearly doubling President Donald Trump’s emergency request, and adding a deal between Trump and Democrats to increase America’s borrowing authority and fund the government.

The 80-17 vote sends the massive package to the House for a Friday vote, with emergency accounts running out of money and Hurricane Irma barreling toward the East Coast. Trump is expected to sign the measure.

The must-do legislation would provide money to government agencies through Dec. 8, eliminating the threat of a government shutdown when the new fiscal year starts next month.

The must-do legislation would provide money to government agencies through Dec. 8, eliminating the threat of a government shutdown when the new fiscal year starts next month.

Thursday’s vote came a day after Trump stunned GOP leaders by siding with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, by backing a short-term extension to the debt limit increase and the spending bill.

The need to raise the debt limit to ease a looming cash crunch that is worsening because of unanticipated Harvey spending was a major headache for GOP leaders like House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who had urged a longer extension to spare Republicans multiple votes ahead of next year’s midterm elections.

GOP leaders are fuming, but Ryan backed the idea on Thursday, telling reporters that the president didn’t want to have “some partisan fight in the middle of the response.”

The aid money comes as Harvey recovery efforts are draining federal disaster aid coffers and Irma is taking aim at Florida. It’s just the first installment on a recovery and rebuilding package for the twin hurricanes that could eclipse the more than $ 110 billion cost to taxpayers of Hurricane Katrina.

In a surprise move late Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell added $ 7.4 billion in rebuilding funding to Trump’s $ 7.9 billion request to deal with the immediate emergency in Texas and parts of Louisiana.

“It will provide certainty and stability for first responders, state officials, and the many others involved in preparing for and recovering from these storms, with critically needed emergency resources that will not be interrupted by the prospect of a shutdown or default,” McConnell said Thursday. “The recovery effort for a record-setting storm like Harvey has strained resources to the limit already.”

McConnell also added a temporary extension of the federal flood insurance program, which otherwise would have expired at the end of the month.

The additional community block grant money is to jump-start rebuilding efforts. The money can cover costs the Federal Emergency Management Agency can’t.

The aid money comes as Harvey recovery efforts are draining federal disaster aid coffers and Irma is taking aim at Florida.

“This funding will serve as an initial first step toward helping Texans begin the process of rebuilding,” said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who requested the additional funding be adding to the measure.

The $ 15 billion-plus aid package is also crafted in such a way to free up another $ 7 billion in Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster relief funds.

Trump’s move is galling to many GOP conservatives. Pelosi used a Thursday news conference to take a victory lap, telling reporters that her deal with Trump ensured that Democrats would have leverage during upcoming Washington debates this fall on health care, government spending, and immigration.

Just before the final vote, the Senate easily voted 87-10 to kill a move by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., to pay for the aid package by cutting foreign aid accounts.

“Why don’t we pay for this? Why don’t we simply take some money that we were going to spend somewhere else for something not as valuable in another country, and why don’t we spend it here?” Paul said.

READ MORE: These lawmakers will drive Congress’ biggest battles this month

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., fared only slightly better in losing a 72-25 vote to kill a bid to remove the debt limit language and all spending above Trump’s request.

“Do your constituents know that we’re using the hurricane as an excuse to extend the debt ceiling?” Sasse said. “We can’t pay our credit card bill, so we’re just going to take over the credit card company and change our credit limit without any discussion.”

Earlier he railed against the deal between the Republican president and Democrats.

“Yesterday we saw Washington’s swamp continue to rise: Chuck Schumer wrote the art of the steal by taking hurricane relief hostage to guarantee a December showdown that favors Democratic spending priorities,” Sasse said.

In the meeting with Republican and Democratic leaders on Wednesday, Trump also suggested doing away with the debt ceiling entirely.

“It complicates things. It’s really not necessary because you’re talking about budget, so it’s really not necessary,” Trump said Thursday.

Pelosi and Schumer indicated that it was an issue they would discuss with their respective rank and file.

Dad gives epic diapering fail a score of 0 out of 10

by

Sara McGinnis

posted in Parenting

The moment you finally got a long-hoped for positive pregnancy test.

Holding your newborn for the very first time.

Every single one of those gooey, slobbery baby grins — it’s easy to think of parenting moments you’d rate 10 out of 10, but what would you absolutely not recommend?

For one first-time dad, an epic middle-of-the-night diaper changed earned the dreaded 0 out of 10 score.

“Very early one special morning,” Reddit user ksozay “was startled out of my 23 minute slumber at 3AM by a loud fart.”

Assuming the gas was being passed by his 1-month-old daughter, he climbed out of bed to change her wet diaper.

“I undo the diaper and reach for a new one,” he recalls. “Suddenly, I hear a gunshot, look down, and I’ve taken a shot directly to the chest and across my right arm. A perfect three shot sweep, very efficient. I watched in horror as baby shit slowly ran down my t-shirt and arm.”

“The new diaper I was holding – now covered in poop fragments. I toss the dirty diaper, toss the new diaper now covered in fragments, and clean off the kid, remove my t-shirt. I grab a new diaper, start to move it into position, and take another hit, directly to center of my chest. This time by a steady stream of urine. Accidentally use new diaper to mop urine off chest and now have to throw that one out. Get new diaper.”

baby sleeping

Somehow, it doesn’t end there.

The first-time father continues: “Take new diaper, move legs up, hear a fart and I instinctively dodge to the right – nothing. Fart came from dog on bed. False alarm. Give dog the finger. Move back into position.

“Get new diaper – kid sharts and I take a third shot directly to the chest and stomach. I’m down on the floor, staring up at the ceiling in disbelief, wondering what’s happened to my life. It’s 3AM and my kid has given me 1 golden shower and 2 hot lunches… without even waking up. Dog on bed sleeping, wife in bed sleeping, kid on changing table sleeping, and I’m on the floor wondering who I REALLY am.”

Finally, baby girl has her new diaper on and this dad learns the hard way “never to remove old diaper without new diaper underneath and to NEVER stand in the direct line of fire.”

But as he puts baby girl back in her bassinet and changes into clean clothes for himself, the sound that started it all returns.

“Wife farts, sound scares dog, dog barks, bark scares kid, kid awake and crying, crying baby wakes wife, wife turns to me and says: ‘Hey, can you change her diaper?’

“I shit you not. This actually happened. So yeah, I’d give that a 0/10…”

What’s your would not recommend parenting experience?

An elderly couple’s tender moment amid a less than ideal situation is tugging on the heartstrings of Internet users everywhere.

In a video clip that has since gone viral, a man is seen sweetly combing his wife’s locks while she sits in a Florida hospital bed.

According to what appears to be the original posting, the couple have been wed for over 70 years and are named Sam and Nellie. The poster – the couple’s son Jamie Jones – commented that his mother had an infection in her kidneys.

During the video, Sam tells his wife at one point, “You used to comb my hair but I’ve never combed yours before.”

“This is the first time for this, you know,” he adds before turning to the man off-camera and asking, “Am I fixing her hair better?”

Woman Accused of Killing Son After Watching Manchester by the Sea Gives Birth to a Boy While Out on Bail

The upstate New York woman accused of murdering her adopted son after watching the Oscar-winning film Manchester by the Sea has given birth while out on bail, PEOPLE confirms.

Heather Franklin, 33, of Guilford, New York, gave birth last week to a boy, her first child with her husband Ernest Franklin, 35, his lawyer, First Assistant Public Defender Zachary T. Wentworth, confirms to PEOPLE.

The birth “is bittersweet,” says a friend of the Franklins who asked to remain anonymous.

The Franklins were arrested on March 22 after autopsy results revealed their adopted special needs son, Jeffrey R. Franklin, had died before a fire on March 1 that destroyed the family’s home. They were indicted on March 24 on charges of arson and second-degree murder in connection with his death. They both pleaded not guilty and are awaiting trial.

While Heather’s lawyer has called the case “circumstantial,” Chenango County District Attorney Joseph McBride alleges that the Franklins murdered their son after watching the 2016 Oscar-winning film, Manchester by the Sea, which depicts a character who is not criminally charged after his children die in an accidental fire.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

While Ernest remains in the Chenango County Correctional Facility, Heather was released on bail and was living with friends during her pregnancy, according to court records.

It is unclear whether she will return to jail.

Earlier this year, Heather talked about how thrilled she was that she and her husband of almost six years were having a baby, expressing her excitement in January on Facebook when she shared ultrasound pictures.

“Here is a pic of our little boy!!,” she wrote on January 25. “He was hiding from the camera much like his father does!”

But on March 1, Jeffrey, also known as JR, who was developmentally disabled, deaf and unable to speak, was found dead in a back bedroom after a massive fire that destroyed their home.

• For more on Jeffrey’s mysterious death, subscribe now to PEOPLEor pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday.

In the days following Jeffrey’s death, Heather, then 23 weeks pregnant, took to Facebook to thank family and friends for the support they showed the family.

“I know i have received a lot of messages and phone calls and appreciate them very much,” she wrote on March 3.

“However i have not checked them,” she continued. “I am not trying to ignore anyone at this point just having a very hard time coping and keeping down ‘triggers’ as much as possible for my mental state and for the safety of our unborn child.”

After holding a “celebration of life” for Jeffrey, grieving friends and family were shocked when the Franklins were arrested and charged with murdering the son they had cared for since 2011.

“We’re all just really stunned,” says friend and neighbor Dominick Gildersleeve. “It’s completely and utterly surreal to me that this I am watching this unfold,” he says. “We’re living a Forensic Files episode.”

Brenda Welsh, another friend of the Franklins, echoed Gildersleeve’s sentiments. “They are decent people,” she says. “But I don’t know what to make of what happened.

“A lot of it doesn’t add up,” she says. “That’s what puzzles me.”

Heather’s lawyer, Michael Trosset, says his client is “innocent until proven guilty” and that McBride’s allegation about Manchester by the Sea “is a leap,” according to court records.

Wentworth, tells PEOPLE, “It is important that the public realizes that the theory being advanced by the DA is just that, a theory. One meant to sway the public opinion on this case long before Mr. or Mrs. Franklin are provided a fair trial.”

Donald Trump Gives Sean Spicer His Final Kiss On ‘SNL’

Sean Spicer’s days as the White House press secretary could be nearing their end, and “Saturday Night Live” did not pass up the opportunity to imagine what they’d look like.

After teasing her “SNL” appearance this week by rolling (literally) through the streets of New York, Melissa McCarthy popped out of the bushes and reprised her role as Spicer once again this week.

McCarthy, who was hiding among the bushes as Spicer, interrupted Aidy Bryant’s stint as Sarah Huckabee Sanders ― President Donald Trump’s political aide who took on the press this week after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. 

After booting Sanders from the stage, McCarthy’s Spicer aggressively fielded questions from the press, but things got dicey when reporters started asking the press secretary if he was afraid of losing his job like Comey.

Spicer defended his boss, saying that he endures POTUS’ abuse because they’re friends. But the questioning eventually leads him on a journey to the streets of New York, then a golf course in New Jersey, to ask Trump once and for all what his future at the White House looks like.

Long story short, it ended with Spicer’s final kiss.

“I don’t think I can do this anymore, Mr. Trump,” Spicer told Alec Baldwin’s Trump. “They’re saying that you’re going to replace me with Sarah.”

“Sean, come on, I would never do that,” the president replied. Sarah Huckabee Sanders “doesn’t have your special spice: Salt and pepper, a little bit of sugar.”

“Sean,” Trump said. “Kiss me.”

In the clip above, watch Spicer’s final moments in the Trump administration, as imagined by “SNL.”

A Guide To Feminist Swag That Gives Back To Planned Parenthood

Republicans have confirmed that they are once again coming after Planned Parenthood, pledging to strip federal funding for the health care institution as part of their effort to repeal Obamacare. It’s a move that would disproportionately affect low-income women, as the organization receives most of its federal funding through Medicaid ― and it could go into effect as early as next month

There are a lot of ways to push back, like donating, calling your elected officials or volunteering. There’s also the option of buying swag that gives back.

Will it end the crusade against Planned Parenthood and ensure more than 2 million people a year don’t lose access to essential services? Nope. Is it just one more small way to push back against a GOP that is hellbent on stripping away women’s access to affordable healthcare? Why, yes it is! So get shopping.
