Prince William Turned Down Make-Up Lunch

Earlier this year, Prince William refused to attend a lunch with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and his younger brother Prince Harry to clear the air and heal the alleged rift within the British royal family.  The claim was made by royal biographer Robert Lacey, who is also the official consultant on Netflix’s “The Crown.” He is releasing a new book titled “Battle of Brothers: William and HarryThe Inside Story of a Family in Tumult,” which addresses the ongoing woes impacted by the royal family.  The book will also put the two brothers’ relationship into a historical context, exploring how the “heir” and the “spare” have impacted the British monarchy over the years. It features numerous interviews with palace insiders.  During a recent appearance on True Royalty TV’s weekly program “The Royal Beat,” Lacey claimed that things were so bad between the brothers following Harry stepping back as a senior royal with his wife Meghan Markle – or “Megxit” – that William turned down a lunch invitation from the queen to avoid spending extra time with the Sussexes.  “It infuriated William to the extent that when the queen said, ‘Alright, let’s have a meeting to talk about all this. Beforehand we will have a family lunch to talk things over, William actually said, ‘No, I do not want to come to the lunch. I will come and negotiate the over the table,’” Lacey claimed.  “But he would not sit down at the family lunch with Harry.” Lacey alleged.

*****Insiders say that Harry always “hogs all the fries!!!!”

Adele To Host SNL

Adele is making her hosting debut on “Saturday Night Live” on Oct. 24.  She announced the gig on Sunday night, sending fans into a frenzy.  She is hosting with H.E.R. as the musical guest.  “Bloooooody hellllll I’m so excited about this!! And also absolutely terrified!” Adele announced on social media. “My first ever hosting gig and for ‘SNL’ of all things!!!!”  She continued: “I’ve always wanted to do it as a stand alone moment, so that I could roll up my sleeves and fully throw myself into it, but the time has never been right. But if there was ever a time for any of us to jump head first into the deep end with our eyes closed and hope for the best it’s 2020 right?”  “Itll be almost 12 years to the day that I first appeared on the show, during an election…which went on to break my career in America, so it feels full circle and I just couldn’t possibly say no!” Adele added.  The singer hasn’t released a new album since “25” in 2015 and fans have been patiently waiting for her next project. It’s unclear, however, if she will be announcing a new album on her “SNL” appearance.

Miley Cyrus Recalls Her Dog Getting Shocked On The Voice

One of Miley Cyrus’ pet dogs had a scary accident while she was a judge on “The Voice.”  She told the story while she made an appearance on “Geena The Latina and Frankie V Morning Show” on Thursday.  Her beloved pet, Little Dog, was with her during her first taping for the show in 2016. And Little Dog had somehow bit into a wire behind the scenes while the production was underway.  “This is sad, but it was handled and my dog is totally thriving and fine. You know on sets there’s, like, wires everywhere. We got all the people singing, everyone is huddled around, like, ‘Who’s going to win The Voice?’ And my dog goes and bites on to the wires of the TV everyone’s watching and all of a sudden, we notice she’s convulsing and she’s getting electrocuted,” Cyrus explained over a video call with the radio show. “And you can’t open her mouth because the person who’s trying to open her mouth is also being electrocuted. But, she was totally fine,” Cyrus added.

Cardi B Deletes Twitter After Getting Back With Husband

Cardi B has deleted her Twitter account.  She took to Instagram — where her account, which has over 77 million followers, is still live — to explain her decision to leave the other social-media platform. Primarily, she said in her rant on Instagram Live, she was upset at critique of her recent reunion with rapper Offset, who she filed for divorce from last month, and generally with being told what’s best for her.  “I’m so tired that because of y’all I’ve gotta continuously explain myself,” she said in the video, Billboard reported, adding that she’s not even the one who made her own divorce public, yet she has to deal with the fallout over it. “I didn’t put my divorce out there, a f - - king court clerk put it out there. And because people are making rumors up, ‘Oh, this guy has a girl pregnant,’ this and that, I have to address it.”  “A whole bunch of 15-year-olds telling me how to live my life like I’m motherf - - king Ariana Grande or something,” Cardi said, “like I came from Disney or something.”
********Disney has princesses, not strippers!!! Unless there’s something we don’t know about Minnie!!

Chris Pratt Voted Off The Chris Planet

On Saturday, screenwriter and television producer Amy Berg gave Twitter a challenge. “One has to go,” she wrote in a post with headshots of Chris Pratt, Chris Pine, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans.  The post has since gone viral, racking up over 6,600 comments and 13,000 retweets. Respondents overwhelmingly voted out “Parks and Recreation” actor Pratt, citing him reportedly being a President Trump supporter and — in a claim that Pratt, 41, has denied — last year supporting a church that maintains anti-LGBTQ beliefs.  “Yeah he can go,” responded one non-fan of the proud Christian and Bible-based dieter.  Others argued that all the Chrises look the same to them. “How to choose?” the competition critic tweeted alongside tubs of four varieties of Friendly’s vanilla ice cream.  “They’re all the same person!” wrote another more directly.
********If they vote him off their planet, he can live on OURS!!

13 Hand Sanitizer Mistakes You’re Probably Making

Huffington Post

  1. You’re using the wrong kind of sanitizer

Not all hand sanitizers are created equal. Rondello recommended using sanitizers that “contain at least 60% ethyl alcohol or 70% isopropyl alcohol” since those most effectively eliminate germs.

You should also read the label of the product to determine if its active ingredients kill bacteria, viruses, both or neither, he said.

“Using a product that is only bactericidal may give you a false sense of security, as it provides no protection from viral pathogens like SARS-CoV-2,” Rondello told HuffPost, adding that some products, such as baby wipes, may not even be antimicrobial at all. “They may have some use in deodorizing and removing visible soil, but they will not have a meaningful effect on SARS-CoV-2.”

Avoid brands that contain methanol, which “can be toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested,” said Makeda Robinson, a virologist who has studied the Zika virus, MERS and now SARS-CoV-2.

And make sure to check if your hand sanitizer is on the list of brands that have been recalled by the Food and Drug Administration.


  1. You’re not using your sanitizer for long enough

You know how you should be washing your hands for a full 20 seconds, enough for you to hum through the “Happy Birthday” song twice from start to finish? Well, you should also be doing this to some degree when you’re applying hand sanitizer as well, said Aaron Glatt, chair of the Department of Medicine and chief of infectious diseases at Mount Sinai South Nassau in Oceanside, New York.

You should rub sanitizer into your hands for 20 to 30 seconds and make sure to “rub it in until it’s all gone,” Glatt told HuffPost.

Always read the labels of hand sanitizers to determine whether their active ingredients kill bacteria, viruses, both or neither, said K.C. Rondello, an epidemiologist and clinical associate professor at Adelphi University’s College of Nursing and Public Health.


  1. You’re using too little

Not using enough hand sanitizer could mean that you are not successfully cleansing, Glatt said.

People often think that getting excess product off the spout or even just using a small droplet is fine. In reality, “you should push out roughly the size of a quarter or a nickel,” the epidemiologist said.

For those larger pump containers that are frequently found by the cash registers in stores, Glatt said a full push down on the pump should be sufficient.


  1. You’re not getting every area of your hands

Any part of your hands that you leave unsanitized can carry particles of the virus. So even if you only touched something with one finger, you should always properly sanitize your whole hands — front to back — to be safe.

For example, say you pick up a pen between two fingers and sign a credit card receipt. Don’t just rub hand sanitizer around on those fingers. Cover your whole hands, including fingers and fingernails. In fact, you should “scratch your palms while still wet to get some product under the nails,” said Charles Bailey, the medical director for infection prevention at St. Joseph Hospital and Mission Hospital in Orange County, California.


  1. You’re not storing it correctly

“You should follow the manufacturer’s instructions in terms of the temperature it’s supposed to be kept at,” Glatt said of hand sanitizer, noting that the wrong temperature can affect a product’s potency. “You don’t put it in the refrigerator, and you don’t put it out in the sun.”

Griffith Hsu, senior medical adviser for the medical supply company Medivico, added that products “must be stored below 105 degrees, as heat can destabilize the sanitizer and render them ineffective.”


  1. You’re not sanitizing before eating

You may clean your hands after picking up a carryout bag, but what about before you dig into the meal once you get home?

When it comes to hand sanitizing, how often you do it is very important. Glatt’s rule of thumb is that if you’re going to put your hands near your mouth, be safe and sanitize again.

“I tell people, ‘Think about what you just touched. Would you be willing to put your hands in your mouth? Touch food? If not, then clean your hands again,’” he said.


  1. You’re not being careful around candles or flames

“Consumers need to be aware that, as sanitizers are alcohol-based, they are flammable,” Hsu told HuffPost. “There have been reports of consumers suffering burns because of hand sanitizer use and open flame exposure, like cigarette lighters.”

After using a sanitizer, you should allow some time for the alcohol to evaporate, he added. And, as a general rule, avoid open flames for at least 30 minutes after application.

“I tell people, ‘Think about what you just touched. Would you be willing to put your hands in your mouth? Touch food? If not, then clean your hands again,’” said Aaron Glatt, chair of the Department of Medicine and chief of infectious diseases at Mount Sinai South Nassau in Oceanside, New York.


  1. You’re sanitizing when your hands are covered in dirt or grease

If your hands are dirty or greasy, the hand sanitizer may not have sufficient contact with the skin to do its job.

“This may lead you to feeling you’re protected when in fact you are not,” Rondello said.

If your hands are visibly dirty, you should always opt to wash them with soap and water first.

“Keep in mind that hand sanitizer is a good alternative when you are in a situation where you can’t wash your hands or your hands are not visibly dirty,” Robinson said. “However, it is not a blanket replacement for using soap and water, which is the best and most efficient way to clean dirty hands.”

If you are near a sink and also carrying hand sanitizer, using soap and water for 20 seconds should be the preferred method.

“The act of scrubbing with soap and water physically removes germs from the surface of the skin,” Rondello said. “Additionally, the friction created when drying your hands with a paper towel also helps by physically removing pathogens on the surface — an advantage lost when using hand sanitizer.”


  1. You’re not allowing the product to dry

It’s important to not wipe your hands before the sanitizer dries.

“Attempting to accelerate the drying process with a towel is going to limit the sanitizer’s effectiveness since you are removing it before it has had a chance to do its job,” Rondello said.

He added that all sanitizers and disinfectants require a certain amount of contact time with a surface in order for them to kill the pathogens they are intended for.

“Removing them prematurely may dry your hands more quickly, but it may also render the sanitizer ineffective — giving you the impression that you’re protected when you’re not,” he said.


  1. You’re overdoing it

While this won’t necessarily harm the hand sanitizer’s effectiveness, it could leave you with chapped hands.

“Hand sanitizers kill not only bad bacteria but also good bacteria, which can irritate the skin,” said Nikhil Bhayani, an infectious disease specialist with Texas Health Resources in Arlington, Texas. “People should moisturize their hands immediately after use, preferably with a cream.”

“If skin irritation is developing, change products rather than decrease the amount of product used or the time spent applying or rubbing in,” Bailey added.


  1. You’re making your own sanitizer

Panic purchases early in the pandemic led to a lot of people trying their hand at making their own sanitizers. Don’t rely on this method to keep you germ-free.

“Experts advise against it,” Bhayani said. “It’s easy to mistakenly create a mixture that’s not strong enough to kill germs.”


  1. You’re not sanitizing other items you are frequently touching

Sanitizing your hands but forgetting to sanitize your credit card, keys or phone could leave you open to infection, said Kristin Hughes, an emergency physician based in Chicago. This behavior could cause cross-contamination.

“I recommend putting the hand sanitizer on any high-touch items that you are carrying with you at the time of sanitizing,” Hughes said.


  1. You’re not checking the expiration date

It might seem simple, but checking the expiration date is important because the active ingredients in hand sanitizer will degrade over time, Rondello said.

“If you choose to use an expired product you have on hand because a newer one isn’t available at the time, know that it is likely not as effective as when it was manufactured ― so you are rolling the dice on whether you are protected or not,” Rondello said. “Bottom line: It’s better than nothing, but you want to replace it with fresh hand sanitizer as soon as you can.”
