NASA says now is a great time to leave Earth

solar weather

When you’re planning on taking a trip it pays to plan ahead, and one of the first things you should do is check the weather forecast. The same is true for space travelers, and with so many missions in the works, NASA is now gazing ahead to see what the space weather forecast is looking like for the upcoming decade, and things appear to be shaping up rather nicely.

Using the most recent data on solar activity and a new predictive formula for forecasting peaks and valleys of solar weather, NASA says that we’re about to experience the calmest decade-or-so of the past two centuries, making right now the perfect time to plan crewed missions to other worlds.

Discover the red beaches that will leave you stunned


The idea of red sand seems like something out of a fantasy film, but it is a genuine thing, and you can travel to see them too. Your typical beach will famously sport yellow or white sands, some of the most famous are those in Hawaii and the Caribbean. It’s the conventional view of paradise. However, if you’ve seen it all before or just prefer the idea of seeing something extraordinary without sacrificing the novelty of the beach, then red beaches should be on your list of things to see. Red beaches are rare and difficult to find, but if you look in these places, you’ll be in for a treat.

Cavendish Beach – Canada

If it’s red you want, then Cavendish beach has it. It has a vast length of red coastline, contrasting against the beautiful blue Canadian sky. The redness in the sand has been described to be a result of high iron levels. The more iron, the darker the red. One expert suggests that the iron creates a rusting effect in the sand, giving it a unique hue.

Cavendish Beach

Rabida Island in Ecuador

Rabida island is part of the famous Galapagos islands, which are a top tourist favorite when it comes to exotic landscapes and brilliant wildlife. Rabida island has one of the most breathtaking red beaches there is to see. These beaches are said to be the home of the brown pelican, so if you watch closely, then you’ll be able to spot them nesting if you’re lucky. That’s not all, you will also find an abundance of the usually-friendly sea lions, which might give you one of their adorable smiles. This beach is said to have been the result of volcanic activity hundreds of years ago which may have been the cause of the iron deposits in the sand. Either way, the depth of the color is astonishing and worth the trip.

Porto Covo Beach in Portugal

Portugal doesn’t just have great weather and fantastic nightlife, it also has red beaches! The color isn’t as vibrant as the color’s found on Rabida island, but it is certainly a sight to be seen. If you want somewhere stunning to put your feet up and relax in the sunshine, then Portugal is the place to be.

Kaihalulu Beach – Hawaii

This beach is isolated, despite being right in the middle of a town. This is because it is incredibly challenging to get to, with only a narrow and slippery ledge to walk down. It is very secluded because people have genuinely hurt themselves trying to get to it, so it’s kind of a ‘proceed at own risk’ kind of endeavor. Of course, once you do make it, the reward is one of the most stunning red beaches you will ever see. You will also be on your own, mostly, private beach where you can enjoy the novelty of Hawaii’s red beach.

Kaihalulu Beach

While these may not be the cheapest of endeavors, they are something you will remember for a lifetime, so it is well worth the expense. Red beaches are incredibly rare, and you’ll be lucky to experience one.

Hollyoaks’ Lauren McQueen to leave soap

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Hollyoaks’ have confirmed Lauren McQueen will leave the show when her character dies from sepsis.
The 22-year-old actress has played Lily McQueen since 2017, but her time on the Channel 4 soap will end on April 10th in an emotional E4 episode which will see the character admit herself to a mental health facility, but she will run away before doctors get the chance to tell her she has sepsis.
She said: “I was honoured to be given such a huge story that carried a lot of responsibility. Even though it was challenging and emotional I really hope I did it justice and hope it raises a lot of awareness to the audience.
“I hope the storyline makes the audience aware of how serious self-harm is, and that the consequences can be life threatening. Sepsis is actually very common, which many people may not know what the symptoms are, and it’s something that needs to be treated very quickly.
“I hope it opens up a lot of conversations and encourages people to talk and get help if they relate to Lily.”
‘Hollyoaks’ have teamed up with charity UK Sepsis Trust for the hard-hitting storyline, and the organisation’s chief executive officer is hopeful the plot will promote awareness of the killer condition.
Dr. Ron Daniels, CEO of the UK Sepsis Trust charity, said: “It’s been fantastic working with the ‘Hollyoaks’ team on this storyline that highlights how potentially devastating sepsis can be.
“Although cases like Lily’s only represent around 10 per cent of incidences of sepsis, the ‘killer condition’ can arise from any infection and strikes indiscriminately, affecting the previously fit and healthy.
“The key to ending preventable deaths from sepsis is awareness, and we’re so grateful to ‘Hollyoaks’ for helping to raise the profile of a condition that affects so many and yet is still so poorly recognised.
“Together we want to encourage everyone, not just professionals to ‘Just ask: could it be sepsis?’ and to change the way sepsis is handled in the UK.”
Alex Fletcher, who plays Lily’s on-screen auntie Diane Hutchinson added: “I am hoping that viewers will see that the seriousness of contracting sepsis through self-harm can have catastrophic consequences.
“I have felt affected by this storyline as we’ve all given it 100 per cent. It’s carried so much responsibility to get it right with the support of all the charities involved.”

Bebe Rexha to Married Football Player: ‘Leave Me the F—k Alone’

Bebe Rexha has no time for games. The “I’m a Mess” singer, 29, called out an unidentified football player for continuing to text her while he’s married with children.

“Do you ever have that one guy that always comes in and out of your life,” she wrote on Instagram Stories on Friday, December 28. “And they are cheaters and waste your time.”

The 2019 Best New Artist Grammy nominee then shared a text exchange that began with a question posed to her about when the man, who referred to her as his “friend,” would see her again.

Rexha was cordial but cool in her response, answering, “I’ll be performing on New Year’s Eve. On NBC. Happy New Years my friend.”

The texter indicated that he had meant to ask when he would see in her person, writing, “Omg. Or on tv lol. Not on TV,” to which she replied, “I’ll be performing in San Jose in January.”

She elaborated on her frustration further in a subsequent Story. “You’re married and have three kids,” she wrote. “Be a good role model and play your sports and leave me the f—k alone. Don’t be texting me ‘hey friend’ especially if you’re a married man. That s—t don’t fly with me. Go back to playing football. If only you guys knew,” along with the face-palm emoji.

“I feel bad for writing that but it’s how I feel,” she concluded.

Rexha performed her hit single at the SAP Center in San Jose, California, on December 1.

Prediction: As shows continue to leave Netflix, some people will return to DVDs

Netflix DVDs

Next year is going to be pretty interesting for Netflix subscribers, to put it mildly. According to analytics firm Jumpshot, more than half of the streaming giant’s 50 most-popular shows are licensed from companies like NBCUniversal and WarnerMedia that are planning to start streaming services of their own.

That’s potentially bad news for Netflix users who are also fans of its top licensed shows like The Office and Grey’s Anatomy. Because since everyone from new streaming upstarts to industry stalwarts like Disney are planning to launch Netflix rivals in 2019, that means they might be inclined to yank their popular titles from Netflix. And if they don’t, they’ll no doubt charge Netflix a pretty penny to keep them there.

Marc Jacobs Will Try to Bring Back Grunge. But Did It Ever Leave?

Photo illustration by The Daily Beast/Photos Courtesy Marc Jacobs

It feels like every Forever 21 has stocked a faded black Nirvana smiley face T-shirt since the dawn of time. But it wasn’t too long ago that grunge—or capital-F fashion’s take on the style—was met with downright rage.

Take, for instance, Marc Jacobs’ “Grunge Collection” for Perry Ellis.

By 1993, grunge had infiltrated airwaves, but it had yet to fill department store aisles. True, Courtney Love had already trampled onto the scene in her combat boots and plaid collared dresses, and kids all over the country may have been digging into thrift store bargain bins for a used flannel to emulate their rock heroes. But the fashion world had turned its skinny shoulder to the movement.

Why hitting the lottery could leave you broke

How could you possibly go broke after winning hundreds of million of dollars? It’s a lot easier than you may think…

With Thursday’s Mega Millions jackpot sitting at around $ 900 million ($ 513 million if you take the lump sum), many people are wondering what life would be like with all that money.

How you could hit the Mega Millions jackpot and still end up broke

But really, what if money suddenly fell out of the sky and into your life? Maybe you win the lottery, or you get an injury settlement or maybe an inheritance. And while a $ 900 million jackpot is rare, there are all kinds of different situations in which you could be left with a lot more money than you’re used to.

When money shows up out of thin air, most of us have no clue how to handle it. And very often, it quickly burns a hole in our pocket.

Now the odds of winning big money have gotten even worse as lottery officials not long ago tweaked the Mega Millions and Powerball formulas so that customers have a greater chance to win smaller prizes instead of tens of millions of dollars, according to the Washington Post.

Be careful how you spend all that money!

Remember the so-called “Ocean’s 16” from Ocean County, New Jersey, who each won $ 3.8 million (after taxes) in an August 2013 PowerBall jackpot that grabbed everybody’s attention?

Well, that’s a huge amount of money. If it’s well-managed, it can provide comfort to you for the rest of your life. But therein lies the rub.

Read more: 19 ways to cut costs and save more each month

For most people who come into big money — like athletes or lottery winners — all of a sudden their wants instantly skyrocket. If those lottery winners back in 2013 gave into those wants, research shows they’ll blow through $ 3.8 million in just six years!

If you ever come into a large inheritance or sell a business and get a pile of money, restraint is key. I’ve long told people in this situation to blow 10% of it however you want. But the other 90% you treat as a nest egg to nurture.

History (and science) show money doesn’t equal happiness

Jack Whittaker, a millionaire from West Virginia, became a much bigger millionaire when he won a $ 315 million lottery in 2002. After four years, Whittaker was broke and had lost both his daughter and granddaughter to drug overdoses (which he blamed on the lottery winnings). In addition to all that, Whittaker was robbed of $ 545,000 in CASH, as he sat in the parking lot of a strip club. Whittaker said, in hindsight, “I wish we had torn the ticket up.”

According to NBC News, a 2008 University of California study that measured people’s happiness six months after winning a relatively modest lottery prize didn’t exactly produce the results you may have imagined. The study looked at those who won an amount equivalent to about eight months’ worth of income. The winners had taken the money in a lump sum. The study found that winning the money, “had zero detectable effect on happiness,” according to Peter Kuhn, one of the study’s authors.

Read more: Skip the lottery: Why you should be on yourself instead!

It’s easy to say, but so hard for people to do. As for me, if I won that kind of money, I would change nothing. I would still get up and come to work every day. I would just think about what charity I could give it to! But that’s just me.

A final word of advice for future lottery winners!

Never take the lump sum payout. You’re better off taking the payout over years as a method of forced budgeting. If you worry your heirs won’t get all the money you have coming to you, buy a term life insurance policy that would pay them for what you would not receive if you die prematurely.

Remember, most of us do better with basic allowances than a huge sum of money right then and there!

Meanwhile, you don’t have to win the lottery or get an inheritance to come into extra cash. See some free and easy ways to search for missing money in your name.
