Pastor John Gray’s Alleged Mistress Says They Had More Than An ‘Emotional’ Affair

Source: Robin L Marshall / Getty

Pastor John Gray and his wife Aventer made headlines when it was revealed their seemingly happy marriage was tainted with infidelity. While Pastor Gray assured fans it was only an “emotional” affair, recently discovered audio recordings paint a different picture.

A woman, who remains anonymous, says she and Gray had a physical relationship during an interview with Larry Reid, She says Gray once booked her a room in the same hotel as his wife, but Aventer found out. He left the woman a voicemail warning her that venter had read their text messages. The mystery woman says that she and Gray had Facetime sex, where he would speak in tongues after climaxing. And yes, they two had sex.

She told Reid that she and Gray had been friends for years, but things changed after the woman went through a domestic violence incident that left her vulnerable.

“It started with him—he likes to say—breathing life into me. So he was just there as far as talking to me, pretty much pastoring me, ministering to me. And I called on him to do a favor to a person that I knew that was struggling with some addiction issues. And so I called upon him to help with that. It was an employee of mine. That employee actually wound up speaking with him and it got him on the straight and narrow. So I sent him a text message telling him thank you. And he said, ‘Whatever you need.’ And I was like ‘Well thank you.’ And he said, ‘I’m talking about you.’

John Gray allegedly also offered her financial help when she fell on hard times.

“He would say, ‘The Lord told me that you need some money so go ahead and check your cash app. I already put money in your account.”

He also allegedly confided in her about his marriage and claimed Aventer didn’t satisfy him.

“I ran into an issue financially and he was just like absolutely. and it was a big deal. It was a really big thing. From that moment on, it started from there. It snowballed into ‘I just love you so much. I always loved you. I always thought about you. I always cared about you,’ the woman shared.

“Then he was going through the stuff with his wife and he was saying how he didn’t like her, didn’t love her, that he was never attracted to her, that he only married her because she looked good on paper.”

The woman also had voicemails of what seemed to be John Gray’s voice.

“When you get this message, delete it. My wife saw our text messages from Friday. She knows you were in the same hotel as me and she does not know that I went to your room. She doesn’t remember me leaving. She’s got your number,” he said.

Gray told the public he was only guilty of being  “inappropriate” because he carried on an “emotional” affair. Clearly there’s more to the story.

Diets Can Do More Than Help You Lose Weight – They Could Also Save The Planet

Fad diets have long been brushed off as selfishsuperficial quests to lose weight.

But if you study the actual content of popular diet books, you will discover that most tell a different story. Many inspire dieters to improve the health of their bodies, society and the planet.

It’s a topic I explore in my research, as well as my 2018 book, “Diet and the Disease of Civilization.” More than than merely guides for getting thin, diet books tell rich stories that urge people to change their lives to save the world.

Grand ambitions

Diets inspire change not because one is more effective than another, but because they tell stories worth believing in.

Peel away the nutrition advice and you’ll find that, while most popular diets ennoble seemingly selfish goals, they also insist that individual health is inextricably linked to the larger environment.

A quick review of diet books reveals their grand aspirations. Think of the Paleo diet. Hundreds of Paleo diets describe peaceful prehistoric communities rich with singing, dancing and storytelling. Today, leaders promise that “eating Paleo can save the world.”

Promoters of detox diets make similar claims. Detoxers believe that environmental pollution and toxins cause stress, obesity and other modern ills.

detox book from 1984 argued that humans cannot “dissociate our fate from the fate of the earth” and insisted that “what we have learned about freeing our bodies from harmful substances must also apply to cleaning up the world.”

Today’s diets go a step further, intimating that if you’re not “eating clean” you could be eating “dirty” foods full of pesticides, toxins and carcinogens. One diet book explains that clean foods are “not only good for one’s health, but equally important for the environment.” “The Kind Diet,” a popular vegan book written by actor and animal rights activist Alicia Silverstone and Victoria Pearson, is subtitled “A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight and Saving the Planet.”

Diet consequences

Arguably, today’s food world could use some saving.

The health consequences of how Americans eat have long been cataloged. For example, 2 in 3 Americans are overweight or obese, costing the U.S. economy an estimated US$ 190 billion a year.

But the environmental consequences of these food choices are just as stark. Agriculture is responsible for about one-tenth of greenhouse gas emissions. Farming consumes more than two-thirds of the planet’s fresh water.

And it’s specific dietary choices that are driving these environmental pressures. Animal products, for example, provide just 18 percent of the typical American’s calories yet take up 83 percent of all farmland. Just cutting down on beef would be more effective at reducing your carbon footprint than giving up your car.

The government’s role

This is where the government could learn from popular diet plans and promote sustainable diets for public health and the environment.

In its dietary guidelines, the U.S. Department of Agriculture encourages Americans consume a healthy diet that focuses on foods high in nutrients and low in sugars and saturated fats. But despite the recommendation of an advisory committee, it does not include language about food system sustainability or how such diets have a well-established link to human health.

The government is also discouraging other steps toward an environmentally friendly diet. Consider the new technologies of culturing meat from living animal cells – a technology that could cut out 14.5 percent of Americans’ anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, the government is bending to industry concerns and enforcing needlessly strict definitions of meat, preventing soy- and lab-based products using the label.

History shows that today’s Department of Agriculture is missing a valuable opportunity. During World War I, the American government used diets to do more than improve individuals’ health. As the head of the Food Administration, Herbert Hoover urged Americans to stop wasting food so the U.S. could use it to prevent starvation in Europe. His efforts are now credited with saving the lives of about 7 million Belgians and 2 million French people.

Popular diets also picked up the humanitarian cause. One 1918 diet included a program dubbed “Watch Your Weight Anti-Kaiser.”

Today’s food authorities could do the same: urge Americans to eat better because the food system is actually a web. Our food choices have a profound impact on our health and the planet.

Scientists gave mice infrared vision, but could they do the same for humans?

infrared vision

Mice are already masters of lurking in the shadows, well out of sight of prying human eyes, but researchers in the U.S. and China just turned a few of them into serious superheroes. The mice, which are normally equipped with eyes capable only of seeing visible light, like us humans, have instead been given the ability to see near infrared light, effectively allowing them to see in the dark.

By injecting specially designed nanoparticles directly into the eyes of the mice, the animals exhibited the ability to see near infrared light. Even more remarkable, the vision augmentation doesn’t appear to have negatively affected the daylight vision of the mice.

Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams Playfully Kept the Rest of the Game of Thrones Cast on Their Toes As Only They Could

Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams may play sisters Sansa and Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, but that apparently didn’t stop them from pranking their castmates by kissing on set.

In an interview with Glamour UK that was published on Thursday, Turner revealed that the co-stars turned BFFs got in the habit of trying to sneak a kiss into every scene they did together while filming the show.

“People always think Maisie and I are a couple. I mean, I am obsessed with her, so you never know… I’ve got an addiction to Maisie Williams. I actually stalk her hashtag on Instagram!” she explained. “Even though we are sisters [in Game of Thrones], we tried to sneak a kiss into every scene we did together to freak everyone out a bit. It kept them on their toes making sure they were following the script.”

Turner also gushed over how close she and Maisie have grown during the series’ lengthy run. “Maisie is definitely my protector and I’m hers, too. I know if anything happened — especially if it was on Game Of Thrones, which it never, ever would — she’d go crazy and protect me,” she said. “Maisie is my strong home.”

People Share Why They Don’t Use Financial Advisers; Some Alternative Ways to Get Financial Help

Many people just do not want to meet with a financial adviser despite the fact that using one may provide numerous financial advantages. Financial advisers provide objectivity of financial situations and give advice to help establish a more secure financial position.

A few personal finance professionals, authors, teachers and bloggers, from the Elevate Community, dedicated to uplifting people of color financially, shared their perspectives:

“Just Not Ready”

Just like weight loss, financial wellness is one of the top three new year resolutions and personal goals. Most people generally know what to do to improve their financial situation, but some are just not ready to do it.

“We like comfort!” says Andre Albritton of The Millennials Next Door. “A financial adviser will give recommendations outside of our comfort zone which can be a frightening experience.”

Money mantras like “save more and spend less” and “pay yourself first” have been stated by every financial expert. The reality is if a person is not mentally ready, they will not execute any plan.

Cost

On television, rich and famous people seem to be the only ones talking about meeting with financial advisers. This creates the perception that it takes thousands or millions of dollars to work with a financial adviser. The consumers living paycheck to paycheck with minimal or no assets (like a home, investments, etc.) may presume it is too expensive to meet with a financial adviser.

Many middle-class Americans are working hard to pay their bills and make ends meet. Paying to meet with a financial adviser may seem premature or unrealistic.

Denial

“People put off seeing a financial adviser for the same reason they avoid going to the doctor or dentist” shares Alfred Edmond Jr., BLACK ENTERPRISE Your Money Your Life Podcast host and co-author of Loving in the Grownzone. “They don’t want to deal with the choices, remedies, or lifestyle changes that will likely be necessary to improve their condition.”

People that practice avoidance in the hope that the problems will go away, or correct itself will deny the problem, and chose not to deal with the financial situation. Unfortunately, avoiding the dis-ease in the bank account will leave a person vulnerable to more financial hardships.

“People are embarrassed about their current (financial) situation and believe their choices got them in that predicament” explains Atiya Brown of Live Financially Savvy Podcast. “Since they don’t know the extent, they may tend to ignore and avoid.”

Pride

Almost 10 years ago, my pride almost put me in the poor house. I remember being ashamed to admit my major money mistakes and felt like a failure. I locked myself in a self-inflicted private prison of shame.

People suffer in silence because of their pride and the shame they feel because of making money mistakes. Making the decision to let go of the shame and ask for guidance will help to release the guilt.

Product Pushers

Julien Saunders of rich & REGULAR states, “Some financial advisers have a tendency to be pushy. Although well-intended, some (financial advisers) can make a person feel pressured. Consumers must fully understand the implications, alternatives, or cost to them as the investor.”

Some financial advisers are perceived as product pushers. Product pushing financial professionals turn off and scare away many consumers. Even though consumers know that financial advisers sell products, they do not want to feel pressured into purchasing products they don’t understand.

Stranger Danger

People do business with people they like, know, and trust. Sharing secret financial skeletons with  someone you don’t know can be extremely uncomfortable. It is even more frightening to give control of your money and assets to that stranger.

Patrina K. Dixon of It’$ My Money says, “Some people have trust issues. Therefore, if they do not trust the financial advisor, they will not be safe to share relevant information the adviser may need to assist the client.

 

Some Alternative Options to Using Financial Advisers 

Many are not ready for the financial commitment to meet or work with a financial adviser. Here are some alternative options and resources to help you “start where you are.”

Financial Blogs and Podcasts

Financial blogs are an excellent resource for free money tips and strategies. Here are a few blogs and podcasts to check out.

Tanya Rapley’s My Fab Finance Blog teaches millennial women of color how to regain control of their finances, overcome financial challenges, and pay off debt.

Talaat and Tai McNeely host the His And Her Money Podcast. Their podcast and blog aim to help married couples reach their financial goals together.

Marsha Barnes’ The Finance Bar Blog connects individuals to their financial wellness. She offers one-on-one coaching and an app that shows where your money is going.

Online Financial Tribes

John Hope Bryant, the founder of Operation Hope stated, “If you hang around nine broke people, you will be the tenth.” Connecting with people who have similar financial goals or have achieved the success desired is essential to financial success. Here are a few online financial tribes to check out.

The Live Richer Academy founded by Tiffany Aliche, who is known as The Budgetnista, is a membership-based online platform that offers courses designed to help participants take their finances to the next level.

Founded by Sandy Smith, of Yes I Am Cheap blog, Hustle Crew is a private Facebook group community that provides resources on entrepreneurship and starting a side hustle.

Financial Coaches

Financial coaches educate clients on the basics of money and credit management. They help their clients establish financial goals and create a customized plan to reach those goals. Financial coaches act as accountability partners to encourage and challenge their clients to success.

Financial coaching services range free through a non-profit programs to a few hundred dollars per hour to work with popular financial coaches privately.

Office-Appropriate Perfumes: Do They Exist?

Office-Appropriate Perfumes

Here’s a topic we haven’t discussed in about a thousand years: perfume at the office. DO office-appropriate perfumes exist, ladies? If so, what are the business etiquette rules for perfume? 

When I grew up I always loved the idea of having “a scent” that people would know me by — there’s a line in When Harry Met Sally about how at the end of the day he wants to come home and smell her perfume on his clothes, and that always struck me as romantic and lovely. When I started the blog, I was fascinated to find that readers, by and large, haaaaated perfume for the office. They got migraines, couldn’t escape the strongest of scents, and NO, in fact, they did not want the conference room or their clothes smelling like your perfume if you were no longer there. Then, I took a long break from perfume because I was in that pregnancy corridor, and either it turned my stomach to wear it while pregnant, or I worried the baby would react negatively to it. My kids are 4 and 7, so I’m slowly starting to go back and try different perfumes — and it’s been really fascinating to me how strong and overpowering my longtime favorite perfumes are, at least to me. I’d read some interesting stories about how perfumes that smell like nothing are really popular, though, so I’ve been sampling some of those, and I thought we’d revisit the topic: if a scent is personal to you (as in, you have to be in hugging/kissing distance to smell it), can it add to your personal sense of polish or empowerment — without annoying others in the office? Are there business etiquette rules one should follow (like not spraying in the office bathroom or your own office) in an abundance of caution for your colleagues? Furthermore, which are the best perfumes “that smell like nothing”? 

office-appropriate perfumes: Juliette Has a Gun

This post contains affiliate links and Corporette® may earn commissions for purchases made through links in this post. For more details see here. Thank you so much for your support!

For my $ .02, I’ve been sampling a few different brands, and my favorites are the lines from Juliette’s Got a Gun (although I’m not personally fond of the brand’s signature scent, “Not a Perfume.”) (Sephora has the sampler set that I bought back in stock! I literally love all of them except for Not a Perfume; if I had to choose I’d say Another Oud, MMMM, and Lady Vengeance are my top three.) I wouldn’t say that they smell like “nothing,” though — it’s more like the subtle scent that you notice if you use scented handsoap, shampoo, or deodorant (but with better staying power) — it’s an understated smell that stays with you and makes you happy when you find a great scent. I also really like Glossier’s scent, but for some reason I bought it in solid form, and it’s too strong for me in that format. I loooove Phlur’s Hepcat, but I might put it more with Le Labo (I have this one) as a “modern perfume” and less of a “not a perfume” — the scent is stronger and more traditionally “perfume/cologne” and less soapy, at least in the modern sense of the word.

Let’s hear from you, readers — do you think office-appropriate perfumes exist, or is all perfume at the office on the “no go” list? Which do you think the best perfumes to wear to work are — and what are the business etiquette rules for perfume?

Bradley Walsh’s incredible bond with son Barney praised by Breaking Dad viewers as they banter across America

BRADLEY Walsh and his son Barney won over viewers with their new ITV show, Breaking Dad.

The father and son duo were praised by fans – who were blown away by the close bond that they shared.

Bradley and Barney have been praised for their ‘close bond’

Bradley, 58, and 21-year-old Barney were filmed for the four-part series as they made their way across America in a 2,000-mile road trip.

In the first episode, which aired earlier this evening, The Chase presenter enjoyed a work-out with two hench personal trainers on Los Angeles’ famous Muscle Beach, and even jumped out of an airplane.

Taking to social media, fans called Bradley an “icon” and a “legend” for throwing himself into the trip – with others adding that Barney’s relationship with his dad had made their “heart melt”.

One wrote: “Loved watching #BreakingDad Bradley and his son. They have a fantastic relationship, for father and son it’s just so lovely to see.”

Another added: “Bradley Walsh is such a legend!!!”

A third shared: “Bradley Walsh & his son’s relationship is the sweetest thing. This programme is making my heart melt.”

Bradley and Barney already won over the nation during an appearance on This Morning earlier today.

Viewers were taken aback by Barney’s good looks – taking to their Twitter pages to comment on how attractive he is.

One admirer wrote at the time: “Bradley Walsh’s son in a dream.”

Another tweeted: “Can we take a moment… Barney Walsh is pretty HOT!”

Barney has been attempting to follow in his father’s showbiz footsteps for quite some time – trying to forge a career in entertainment as an actor and television presenter.

He has worked as a host for Miss World, and has appeared in TV shows Doctors, Law & Order UK, and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Bradley is also father to daughter Hayley, 37, with his wife Donna Derby.

Anthropologie dared to charge $42 for a bundle of sticks… and they sold out

Anthropologie

Ah, the holiday season is upon us! It’s that time of year where some families will be eating elaborate meals together alongside a crackling fireplace while others will be avoiding one another entirely. All the while, presents will be exchanged, festive drinks will be imbibed, and Home Alone will inevitably be playing on repeat.

The holiday season, though, isn’t only for individuals to enjoy. It’s also a time of great excitement for friendly corporations who can’t help but convince you — yes you, the reader — that your life would be so much better if you purchased something you didn’t even know you needed just a few weeks ago. Case in point: Anthropologie — a popular woman’s boutique — recently started selling a bundle of twigs — which it calls a decorative birch bundle — for upwards of $ 50. Sure, you’ve heard of twigs before. And sure, perhaps you’ve even stepped on one or two in the past. But have you ever had the capitalistic privilege of buying a bundle of twigs online?

HTGAWM’s Viola Davis and Aja Naomi King Reveal When They Feel Their Best

A little self-love and care goes a long way! Viola Davis and Aja Naomi King both spoke to Us Weekly about when they feel like their best selves and what goes into it. And the two actresses who star alongside each other in Shonda Rhimes hit show How to Get Away With Murder had similar sentiments to share.

Davis, 53, admitted she feels her most powerful when she’s just being herself. “When I can be myself and I am comfortable being myself, when I can totally be in the moment, that’s what makes me feel powerful,” she said at The Hollywood Reporter’s 27th Annual Power 100 Women in Entertainment Breakfast in Hollywood.

King has certainly taken note. “Viola is kind to every single person she encounters, the 33-year-old actress explained. “She loves to joke, she loves to dance. She is just fun to be around. I think it comes from self confidence. She’s not afraid of making a fool of herself. Not trying to pretend to be cool. She’s silly and just incredible.

For the two ladies to feel like their most authentic selves, they love to be surrounded by women who support them.

“A lot of times what’s aligned is if I’m in the company [of people] who understand and encourage my authenticity and a lot of times its me, just sort of talking to myself and honoring my inner voice,” she said at the Fiji-sponsored event.

As for King? “I value myself. I typically surround myself with people who value themselves. The way that I am with my friends. … I hope that everyone has that experience. To be surrounded by people who are like ‘Yeah, you’re special. You’re worth it,’” she told me Us at the L’Oréal Paris Thirteenth Annual Women of Worth Awards.

If the two ladies ever need that extra confidence boost, they’re all about taking a little time out for self-care. Davis’ activity of choice? “Epsom salt baths. Oh, my God. The best, absolutely,” she exclaimed. And King enjoys letting her mind rest for a moment. “Sometimes I get really stressed out. Stress wreaks havoc on the body. I’m trying to be more mindful about how I let things affect me … and just breathe through everything because a problem is only a problem if you make it one,” she explained.

Say What Now? Two Texas Women Accused of Sex with 14-Year-Old Boy They Met at Pool Party

Two women are being accused of having sex with raping a 14-year-old boy they met at a pool party back in July.

One of the women allegedly warned the teen to keep quiet after their encounter.

via People:

Local reports state the party in Temple, Texas, was attended by both minors and adults.

The suspects — Desiree Cherie Hovatter, 19, of Houston, and Austin resident Savanna Nicole Spurlock, 21 — allegedly met the teen at the party, and later, Hovatter is accused of returning with the boy to his home and having sex with him in his sister’s bed. The Temple Daily Telegram reports the alleged victim’s parents were out of town at the time of the incident attending to a family emergency.

Spurlock is accused of having sex with the boy in mid-August, according to KWTX.

Hovatter and Spurlock were charged with second-degree felony sexual assault of a child. Both remain in custody on $ 100,000 bond, but it was unclear if either had appeared before a judge to enter a plea.

PEOPLE was unable to determine if they had lawyers who could comment on the allegations for them.

According to the Daily Telegram, a relative of the teen said he admitted to her that he’d had sex with Hovatter.

The boy allegedly told a forensic examiner he had sex with both Hovatter and Spurlock, according to KWTX, and that Spurlock allegedly told him in August not to tell anyone about what happened or “she would have to go to jail for 10 years.”

The two women face 20 years in prison if convicted

Dolce & Gabbana Never Met a Controversy They Didn’t Like—Until Now

#BoycottDolceGabbana has become almost as perennial a Twitter hashtag as #MondayMotivation or #SponsoredPost.

The ever-controversial line has a dubious resume that includes design snafus like releasing blackamoor earrings or $ 2,395 “slave sandals.” Founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have stoked controversy before, whether it be in the form of calling babies born from IVF “children of chemicals, synthetic children” or making unsolicited, negative comments about the singer Selena Gomez’s appearance.

But just when many Dolce critics believed they had become desensitized to the antics of both founders—especially 56-year-old Gabbana, the more outspokenly vitriolic half of the pair—came the events of last week.

7 Black Friday Shoppers Tell Us What They Really Plan to Spend for Holidays

Cyber Monday still hasn’t killed Black Friday… at least not yet. This holiday season, it was estimated that 34 million people would shop in person on Thanksgiving Day, according to a survey by the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights and Analytics. For Black Friday, that number was estimated at 116 million shoppers. And according to the survey, the average amount spent on holiday purchases will be a not-so-frugal $ 1,007.24. That’s 4.1% more than the average amount spent last year.

We decided to take our own kind of survey. It’s far from scientific, but we asked seven random shoppers why they gave up holiday time to search for deals in person. We also asked them about the best deal they found, and what their budgets are like this year. (We like budgets, after all.)

Here’s what they had to say.

1. Brittany Snyder shops at Target with her two children, Axel, 4, and Everleigh, 2, in Pinellas Park, Fla.

A mother shops at Target

Why are you out shopping in person, rather than online?

We were in the house all day for Thanksgiving with family over, so today we needed to take a little break and come outside and do some shopping and leave the messy house behind for a little bit. This is also my excuse to not clean up so quickly. I come out here and see everything. I normally get something for [the kids]. And when I get home, I’ll do the rest online. I like to be done with Christmas shopping by Monday.

What is the best deal you found today?

Every year, I always buy them clothes here. Everything’s just really cheap, so I won’t get upset if they get candy all over it. Their shirts, long sleeves, are $ 3.

How much money do you plan to spend during Black Friday?

It was $ 77 for, I think, five shirts, two [pairs of] jeans, toys, candy. I’ll take it. 

2. Luis Valdez with his 8-year-old daughter, Sofia Valdez, at Best Buy in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Luis Valdez and his daughter Sofia Valdez, 8, both of St. Petersburg, Fla., stand in line to purchase TVs at Best Buy on Thanksgiving day on Nov. 22, 2018.

Why are you out shopping in person, rather than online?

I like to see what I’m getting. I don’t like to wait for things to come.

What is the best deal you found today?

The Samsung 65-inch TV for $ 599. It’s a good, quality TV for a good price.

How much money do you plan to spend during Black Friday?

Under $ 1,000 for just two TVs and a phone.

3. Joanna Gregg, right, with her daughter Aydrian, 16, at Target in Pinellas Park, Fla.

A mother and daughter shop at Target

Why are you out shopping in person, rather than online?

I pretty much do all of my shopping here, other than a couple of items. All of my grocery shopping, everything, I can do at Target. I still like to touch everything and see everything in person. And I’d still rather give the stores the business than do a ton of online shopping. I want the stores to be here.

What is the best deal you found today?

Probably the iPhone deals with the gift card. They’re better than the actual carrier’s discounts. That’s what we’re here for. We’re waiting to get an iPhone 8 and a $ 150 gift card, zero down on the phone. The $ 150 gift card is worth being here for.

How much money do you plan to spend during Black Friday?

I don’t really have a budget. Probably with reason, I’ll spend about $ 1,000. We’re probably at about half of that right now, which is good. 

4. Nitya Pendyala, 14, left, and her sister, Shari Pendyala, 8, with their father, Sri Pendyala, not pictured, at Best Buy in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Nitya Pendyala, 14, left, and her sister Shari Pendyala, 8, both of Pinellas Park, Fla., shop for movies on Thanksgiving day at Best Buy on on Nov. 22, 2018. S

Why are you out shopping in person, rather than online?

I guess we just wanted to go to the store. It’s interesting.

What is the best deal you found today?

The best deal I’ve found today are these movies: “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Black Panther” and “Coco.” They are $ 6.99.

How much money do you plan to spend during Black Friday?

Not much. Under $ 500.

5. Lakeisha Carroll, left, shopping with her niece, Ceasia Moore, at Target in Pinellas Park, Fla.

Two women shop at Target

Why are you out shopping in person, rather than online?

I’m going to do both. Right now, we’re going to do little things. And on Cyber Monday, we’re going to do electronics. I went yesterday [on Thanksgiving Day], but it was kind of crowded. I thought today was going to be the better blockbuster, but yesterday was the better blockbuster.

What is the best deal you found today?

This Fisher Price [Smart Home] I got for $ 30 cheaper than I saw in the competing store. Also, this Honda Ride On [Electric Bike]. The Fisher Price is $ 99 here. It was $ 129.99 at the competing store. The Honda Ride On was $ 59. The original price was $ 69.

How much money do you plan to spend during Black Friday?

Budget for toys: not over $ 500. Cyber Monday, I’ve got a little bit more of a budget.

6. James Granger at Best Buy in St. Petersburg, Fla.

James Granger of St. Petersburg, Fla., drags his new 65 inch TV to a register at Best Buy on Thanksgiving day on Nov. 22, 2018.

Why are you out shopping in person, rather than online?

I’m out shopping in person because I was in the area, and I thought I could get a better deal.

What is the best deal you found today?

This TCL TV for $ 400. I’ve been eying all the Black Friday deals. It was a doorbuster for Walmart and Target, but for some reason, I found it here for the same price and they didn’t have it as a doorbuster.

How much money do you plan to spend during Black Friday?

I plan to spend about $ 800. I’m buying a TV, a Samsung watch for my mom and a scooter thing for a kid — and it comes out to $ 800 altogether.

7. Jennifer Meyers with her son, Kaden, 3, at The International Plaza Mall in Tampa, Fla.

A little boy is carried by his mother in a mall

Why are you out shopping in person, rather than online?

Well, we don’t have a mall where we live, because we live on a tiny little island. So we wanted to see crowds and all of the decorations and all of the excitement. We live on St. Simons Island. We do some [shopping] online and some in the stores, just figure out what we need and the best deals we can find.

What is the best deal you found today?

The Disney Store had a lot of different things — animals, costumes for the different movies that they like. We were able to get a themed present, which they like, [for] about $ 50 each, two kids about $ 100. Probably full price, we would have spent $ 100 [or] $ 150 per kid. So it was definitely worth the sales.

How much money do you plan to spend during Black Friday?

Really, [I’m] just figuring out who I need what for and figuring out the best deals I can find. Stuff that they will like. [I don’t] really have a budget.

Sharon Steinmann (Instagram @sharonsteinmann) is the chief photographer at The Penny Hoarder. Chris Zuppa (Instagram @chris.zuppa) is the senior photographer. Both would rather photograph on Black Friday than shop.

This was originally published on The Penny Hoarder, which helps millions of readers worldwide earn and save money by sharing unique job opportunities, personal stories, freebies and more. The Inc. 5000 ranked The Penny Hoarder as the fastest-growing private media company in the U.S. in 2017.

Just like the cartoon stickers awarded to very brave boys and girls who make it through their dentist appointments, those who exercise their constitutional rights get a souvenir from their experience: another sticker!

“Everything is so heavy,” Marie Dagata, who co-designed the sticker all New Yorkers receive after voting, told The Daily Beast. “(The stickers) are a lightness, a form of self-expression for whatever your political stance is.”

On a day that exists to be partisan, the sticker communicates an unadulterated patriotism and old-school levity not usually seen in this vitriolic political era. “I’ve seen the sticker on people of all ages, on pets—I saw a nice one where people were kissing, and they both had my ‘I Voted’ sticker on their cheeks,” Dagata said. “It’s sweet.”

Millennials Could Make a Big Difference in the Midterm Elections. But Will They Vote?

One point appears to be clear: Millennials will be looking for game-changing U.S. political candidates as Election Day draws closer.

Fifty-five percent of millennials report they will definitely or probably vote in the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new NBC News/GenForward survey. The elections occur on Nov. 6. Some 19% of millennials indicate that they will definitely or probably not vote. Another 25% are unclear if they will vote or not.

A majority of millennials have regularly indicated they plan to vote for Democrats in the 2018 congressional elections within the last year. Roughly a quarter plan to vote for Republicans. Another quarter doesn’t plan to vote for either party, uncertain what they will do.

Survey findings showed that “the candidate quality that matters most to millennials’ vote in the upcoming midterms is someone who can bring about needed change, signifying that young people are still on the hunt for someone they feel can make a difference.”

Forty-two percent of millennials surveyed reported their midterm vote will be in opposition to President Donald Trump. Just 14% say their vote in this year’s midterm election will back Trump, while 24% contend Trump won’t affect their vote at all.

The survey of 1,910 adults ages 18-34 was conducted nationally from July 26 through Aug. 13 this year.

Intriguingly, millennials are not overly thrilled with either party. In the past year, the survey showed millennials perspective of the Democratic Party was split between favorable and unfavorable. During the same time, about 6 in 10 millennials have asserted unfavorable impressions of the Republican Party, with fewer than 3 in 10 disclosing favorable views.

The survey also suggested that “millennials are disillusioned about the midterm elections.”

On the numbers front, millennials could be a force in the election if a great number vote. Millennials are expected to soon top baby boomers in size demographically. Totaling 71 million in 2016, millennials in America are closing in on baby boomers (74 million) in population and expected to become the nation’s largest living adult generation in 2019, according to the Pew Research Center.

And while millennials might be more likely to vote for Democrats, a big uncertainty is how many of them will actually vote. Observers conclude that millennials over the years have not displayed high turnouts for midterm elections.

Millennials Could Make a Big Difference in the Midterm Elections. But Will They Vote?

One point appears to be clear: Millennials will be looking for game-changing U.S. political candidates as Election Day draws closer.

Fifty-five percent of millennials report they will definitely or probably vote in the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new NBC News/GenForward survey. The elections occur on Nov. 6. Some 19% of millennials indicate that they will definitely or probably not vote. Another 25% are unclear if they will vote or not.

A majority of millennials have regularly indicated they plan to vote for Democrats in the 2018 congressional elections within the last year. Roughly a quarter plan to vote for Republicans. Another quarter doesn’t plan to vote for either party, uncertain what they will do.

Survey findings showed that “the candidate quality that matters most to millennials’ vote in the upcoming midterms is someone who can bring about needed change, signifying that young people are still on the hunt for someone they feel can make a difference.”

Forty-two percent of millennials surveyed reported their midterm vote will be in opposition to President Donald Trump. Just 14% say their vote in this year’s midterm election will back Trump, while 24% contend Trump won’t affect their vote at all.

The survey of 1,910 adults ages 18-34 was conducted nationally from July 26 through Aug. 13 this year.

Intriguingly, millennials are not overly thrilled with either party. In the past year, the survey showed millennials perspective of the Democratic Party was split between favorable and unfavorable. During the same time, about 6 in 10 millennials have asserted unfavorable impressions of the Republican Party, with fewer than 3 in 10 disclosing favorable views.

The survey also suggested that “millennials are disillusioned about the midterm elections.”

On the numbers front, millennials could be a force in the election if a great number vote. Millennials are expected to soon top baby boomers in size demographically. Totaling 71 million in 2016, millennials in America are closing in on baby boomers (74 million) in population and expected to become the nation’s largest living adult generation in 2019, according to the Pew Research Center.

And while millennials might be more likely to vote for Democrats, a big uncertainty is how many of them will actually vote. Observers conclude that millennials over the years have not displayed high turnouts for midterm elections.

Blac Chyna Gets Emotional In Beverly Hills While On An Outing With Friends: ‘They Can Say Whatever They Want About Me’

Blac Chyna was recently spotted on a night out with her pals in Beverly Hills last Friday. She seemed a bit overemotional, as Daily Mail puts it, while she was leaving a steakhouse with her pals.

She was with a female friend, and she told her the following: ‘I want to get my message out. Go out and vote. It’s midterms.’

She also continued and said ‘I’m doing good and my kids are doing very well.’

Daily Mail reports that Chyna went on: ‘I keep quiet, I keep silent. Do you want to know why? Look up your religion. Get more informed. They say whatever they want about me. I look at it and laugh. You know why? Because it’s all false.’

Just recently Chyna discussed other subjects as well such as new music.

‘I’ve been working on some music. I never been the type of person to really coast. I just want to test all my boundaries to see if I can kind of do it,’ she told DailyMailTV.

‘My music is kind of fire. I have a little bit of singing, a little bit of rapping and I have a little love song.’

She also stated a little while ago that she would definitely consider getting back together with Rob Kardashian, but her baby daddy did not address the issue, at least not in public.

Speaking of Rob, Chyna’s mom, Tokyo Toni begged him via social media to let her see Dream Kardashian in a really emotional video.

The T Rex’s tiny baby arms might have been way more useful than they seem

t rex arms

Running into a Tyrannosaurus rex in the wild would have been a truly frightening thing for just about any animal that roamed the earth between 65 million and 80 million years ago, and for an obvious reason. The mighty meat-eater was huge in size and had a mouth built to turn bones into powder. If it snagged you with its jaws you were probably going to have a bad time, but nobody was afraid of its puny little arms… or were they?

As Live Science reports, a new study presented at a recent meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology took a close look at how T. rex’s arms would have functioned, and it makes some bold predictions.

Nickelback are immune to your mean tweets, in fact, they relish them

TwitterFacebook

Nickelback are pretty good sports when it comes to being one of the most ridiculed bands on the planet. I guess you have to be.

In the latest edition of Jimmy Kimmel’s way harsh segment “Mean Tweets,” music stars like Pink, Miley Cyrus, The Strokes, Schoolboy Q, Imagine Dragons, Tyga, Dua Lipa, and Gwen Stefani read out awful things people have written about them on Twitter.

Heck, Korn even takes a deep burn with a comparative reference to Nickelback. 

But it’s the ever-slammed, ever-noble Nickelback that takes the final blow, with lead singer Chad Kroeger offering up a quick comeback without missing a beat. Guess he’s heard it all before. Read more…

More Men Are Wearing Stilettos—if They Can Find Their Size

Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast

Shaobo Han put on his first pair of heels at age 11. The pair wasn’t Han’s, exactly—he’d stolen them from his mother, to practice “prancing around the house when no one was around.” Han thought that boys weren’t supposed to wear heels, so he made sure to play with them in private.

“I have other male-presenting friends who have the same memory of trying on their mother’s clothes,” Han told The Daily Beast. “It’s fascinating that a collective memory exists. Even though nobody taught us how to wear heels, we all tried on our own.”

Years later, Han went to Forever21 to buy his first real pair of heels for $ 40. “I was lucky that my shoe size is a men’s eight, which is a women’s 10,” said Han. “Other people aren’t as fortunate. If they have larger feet than mine, it’s almost impossible to find something that fits.”
