Vanderpump Rules makeup line1M Instagram followersgot engagedThe Rowgreen-lit for a sequelAxis Sally. And yes, it’s produced by Randall. Oh boy. It’s Based On A True Story Honestly, I have no idea why Randall or Lala were drawn to this particular story, but here we go. Axis Sally is based on the story of a woman called Mildred Gillars, an American broadcaster who disseminated German propaganda from Berlin during WWII. After the war, (spoilers) Mildred is captured by the U.S., convicted of treason, and sentenced to “ten to thirty” years imprisonment (which is incidentally the same amount of time I will remain in grad school). Mildred’s story is definitely not the “brave gentile saves and hides endangered Jews” heroic tale we’ve come to …

Manager Receives An 8 Hours Notice To Fire All His Staff, Orders Pizza And Writes Recommendations For Everyone Instead

Some people say that only death and taxes are certain in this world, but for most of us mere mortals, finding some kind of job to pay off those expenses is also an inescapable reality.

KFC demoted an employee for wanting to pump at work. She just won a $1.5 million lawsuit against them.

Women have been re-entering the workforce after giving birth for decades now. You would think that employers would know how to treat new moms back on the job, but apparently some people still have a lot of learning to do. When Autumn Lampkins was hired to be an assistant manager at a Delaware Kentucky Fried Chicken just months after giving birth, she was told her new job wouldn’t interfere with her need to pump breastmilk. Instead, it did nothing but interfere. Lampkins claimed the KFC outlet gave her a hard time for wanting (and let’s face it, needing) to pump breast milk during her working hours. Lampkins filed a lawsuit against her former employer, stating she was demoted over it. …

Hubble’s Weather Forecast Reveals Giant Storms On Uranus And Neptune

Seasons and weather events are not an exclusive feature of Earth. Many objects in our Solar System experience changes as they move around the Sun and while seasons last for months on Earth, on other planets they can last decades. Space probes and the Hubble Space Telescope have kept an eye on the planets and the telescope has recently discovered some new features of Uranus and Neptune. In observations collected over the last few years, Hubble has expanded our knowledge of Uranus’ polar vortex and discovered a new dark storm on Neptune. These interplanetary weather forecasts are part of the Outer Planet Atmospheres Legacy (OPAL), a long-term project that hopes to understand the decades-long changes on these two ice giant planets. …

Cory Booker Woos Iowans With Love-Heavy Brand Of Progressive Patriotism

WATERLOO, Iowa ― New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s favorite presidential campaign-trail yarn ― and he has a lot of them ― is about how his parents, two of IBM’s first black executives, overcame housing market discrimination to raise him and his brother in a predominantly white neighborhood in one of his state’s suburbs. Recounting the tale Friday afternoon to an audience of about 100 Democrats at a community college in Waterloo, Booker marveled at the far-reaching power of individual political sacrifices. It’s a testament, he declared with excitement in his voice, to his deeply held belief that “love is a radical force.” On the same weekend that Sen. (D-Mass.) officially with a pledge to “fight back” against the waged by …

How To Get Vaccinated Without Your Parent’s Permission

  A vaccination can save your life. Simple as. But a number of young people are being denied the opportunity of being immunized because of their parent’s hostility towards vaccinations. While the “anti-vax movement” remains totally discredited by science, there has been a hugely damaging resurgence of these ideas in the age of social media. Just recently, a Twitter thread highlighted how teens in the US are now searching for legal advice on Reddit because they want to be immunized against deadly diseases, but their parents won’t provide them with their consent. Like any medical treatment, receiving a vaccine should only be undertaken if the patient has a full understanding of the procedure. Many teenagers around the world feel like they …

What the Japanese know about eating that keeps them healthy and long lived

Have you ever wondered why so many Asians, the Japanese, Chinese, Koreans and Vietnamese in particular seem to age well? Why so many of these folks are fit and healthy throughout their long lives? Sure, many Japanese who live stressful city lives might not fare as well as those who live in more rural areas, just like over here… yet even so, it always seems like they look younger than they truly are, doesn’t it? Recent studies have shown that the residents of Okinawa are some of the longest lived people on the planet. Not only do they live well past 100 with remarkable regularity… they don’t look like they’re that old either. On top of that, these long-lived Japanese …
