Astroworld Update

Officials have opted for county officials to investigate the incident at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival in Houston, Texas that left ten people dead and many more injured.  Officials previously called for an independent investigation to run in tandem with the Houston Police Department’s investigation into the incident in an effort to avoid any conflicts of interest and ensure that the families of the victims get the answers they’re looking for. However, on Monday, Houston-area officials instead opted to have a country administrator conduct a review along with other government entities.   County Judge Lina Hidalgo — the top elected official in Harris County, which includes Houston — had previously proposed a third-party probe that would look at the planning and execution of crowd control tactics at the festival, founded and headlined by Scott.  The Harris County administrator instead will work with other city and county entities to review security, fire and other safety plans at the county-owned NRG Park, where the festival was held.  “I hope that it comes back with actionable lessons,” Hidalgo said. “I hope it doesn’t result in something vague or forgotten.”  The decision means that the investigation into the incident will not be handled by a definitively objective independent party. Other members of Harris County’s governing body, known as a commissioner’s court, were concerned Hidalgo’s investigation could lead to legal liabilities for the county.  Several lawsuits have already been filed over injuries and deaths at the Nov. 5 concert.  More than 300 people were treated on-site for injuries at the show, and at least 25 were hospitalized.

George Clooney Weighs In On “Rust” Set Shooting

George Clooney spoke out about the deadly accidental shooting on the set of “Rust,” blaming “a lot of stupid mistakes” for the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Speaking on the “WTF” podcast with host Marc Maron, Clooney noted that the “Rust” shooting is shocking to him after the deaths of actors Brandon Lee in 1993 and Jon-Erik Hexum in 1984 seemingly served as a warning to Hollywood.  “Every single time I’m handed a gun on the set — every time — they hand me a gun, I look at it, I open it, I show it to the person I’m pointing it to, I show it to the crew,” Clooney said (via Yahoo Entertainment). “Every single take.”  He added that he personally makes sure to take any six-shooter he’s handed on a set like the one Baldwin was handling and point it at the ground before firing the trigger six times to ensure it is in fact safe to handle. Clooney said that he does not know Baldwin very well personally, so he stopped short of putting any kind of blame on the actor.  “Maybe Alec did that — hopefully he did do that,” the actor said of the typical on-set protocol. “But the problem is dummies are tricky because they look like real [rounds]. They got a little tiny hole in the back [from which] somebody’s [removed] the gunpowder.”
******Yeah, we’re guessing Alec did NOT check that gun!!!
****In Hollywood, we always ask, “WWGCD?” Or… “What Would George Clooney Do???”
*******The Rock always points the gun at his own face and pulls the trigger!! If it fires, he catches the bullet in his teeth!!

Pete Davidson Needs Help In The Kitchen

Pete Davidson uses his coffee maker to prepare ramen noodles because he admittedly doesn’t know how to boil water the traditional way.  “I can make a mean Cup O’ Noodles,” the 28-year-old boasted on Tuesday’s episode of iHeartMedia’s “River Cafe Table 4” podcast. “I go to Costco and I get the premade ramen noodles and then I go home.  “And since I don’t know how to boil water since I’m dumb, I go to the Keurig and … I use the hot water from that,” he confessed.  He also opened up about emotional eating, saying there would be days where he wouldn’t eat because he wasn’t happy with his performance on the show.  “I started eating before the shows because I would always eat after the shows and I would usually base my eating on whether I had a good show or not,” he said. “And then if the show doesn’t go well, usually I don’t want to eat. So there would be days that I just wouldn’t eat.”  Davidson’s lack of cooking skills probably explains why he decided to take Kim Kardashian out on a date at a restaurant earlier this month instead of whipping her up something in his kitchen.
*********A guy who pretends he can’t cook??? That’s a REAL man!!!
*******Or maybe he’s auditioning for a new Food Network show: “Cooking for Incompetents!!”
******We’re just guessing, but maybe Pete and Kim went out in public for… THE PUBLICITY???

Derek Hough Positive For COVID

Derek Hough has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19 after being present in the “Dancing With the Stars” ballroom Monday night.  He shared the news via Instagram early Tuesday, revealing that his Las Vegas shows would be postponed this week.  “Even though I’ve been fully vaccinated I’ve just been diagnosed with a breakthrough case of COVID and just found out,” Hough shared.  “I feel strong, but I’m currently taking advice from medical professionals, doing everything I can to get better as fast as i can.”  Hough, who is quarantining, did not clarify whether fans will still get to see him for the “Dancing With the Stars” finale next week.  He also had a COVID scare in October, and was forced to sit out of the dancing competition series after he was potentially exposed.
*******Wait… he’s fully vaccinated and he STILL got the COVID?? How could THAT happen???
*****Maybe he’s secretly unvaccinated!!! Arrest him!!!

Oprah Winfrey Matches Her Garden

When Oprah Winfrey sat down to interview Adele in her rose garden for her CBS concert special Sunday, the stars looked perfectly coordinated in white suits.  But Oprah’s outfit was all thanks to a last-minute style switch – and editing out some of the colored roses in her garden.  “I was so excited to meet Adele for the first time,” Winfrey explained to Oprah Daily.  “Even though I have a closet full of clothes and haven’t been anywhere in two years, I wanted something special for the interview in my rose garden.”  She initially planned on a custom Sally LaPointe apricot suit that blended with the blooms in the background, citing Jennifer Lopez’s outfit from her 2020 Vision tour by the same designer as an inspiration.  But once she got a glimpse of the pristine white custom Christopher John Rodgers style Adele planned to wear, she said “Hello” to something a little more matching.  “I thought, Whoa, I’m going to look like a parrot next to her,” Winfrey recalled. “I even had a conversation with Gayle about it. I said, ‘Oh my God, everybody went to the trouble to get this suit made, and now she’s going to be in a neutral color. I don’t want to stand out like a peacock.’”  “Of course Gayle said, ‘I love being a peacock.’ But, listen, I certainly do not love being a peacock.”  In the end, Oprah – who said neutrals “tend to be a go-to in [her] everyday life” — ended up selecting a Brunello Cuccinelli jumpsuit and cream-colored jacket from her own closet, even altering her garden to complete the color scheme.
**********Didn’t anyone ask Stedman?? Oh… he wasn’t there?? Only Gayle??
********We just hope Adele doesn’t sucked down the “Oprah Rabbit Hole” like Prince Harry did!!
*****We know she feels!! We’ll often wear something brown, to match the color of the dirt in our front yard!!

Wayward Penguin

A penguin that apparently ended up about 1,800 miles off its intended course became the third member of its species in history to be found on a New Zealand beach.  Harry Singh posted videos to Facebook when he encountered an Adelie penguin wandering on a Christchurch-area beach.  The Kaikoura Wildlife Hospital said the young penguin, native to Antarctica, was fatigued and reluctant to return to the sea when it was found about 1,800 miles from home.  “The penguin is now in care at Christchurch Penguin Rehabilitation, which is managed by Thomas and Kristina Stracke, in conjunction with the South Island Wildlife Hospital,” Kaikoura Wildlife Hospital said in a Facebook post.  The New Zealand Department of Conservation said the penguin was given a health check-up and released in the Banks Peninsula area in the hopes that it would be able to find its way back home.  David Ainley, an ecologist and expert on Adelie penguins, said members of the species are known to travel far when they are outside of their breeding season, but it was unusual for one of the birds to show up in New Zealand.  “More than likely there are quite a few more that stray away from the sea ice that rings Antarctica, but don’t get near to civilization,” Ainely told USA Today.
**********Get the camera crew!!! His journey home is a Discovery series!!
****Or… he could stay in New Zealand, and we’ll make a Pixar film of his life!!!
******Penguins are the “tuxedo birds..” they’re all dressed up with no place to go!!

Metal Box Washes Up In Florida

A mysterious metal box that washed up on a Florida beach might be an old ballast tank from a ship, officials said.  Visitors to Playalinda Beach in Brevard County said they first noticed the large, rusted item in the boardwalk No. 7 area on Friday.  “It looks like an oil drum of some sort, big drum,” witness Tom O’Shea told WKMG-TV.  Kristen Kneifl, resource manager for the Canaveral National Seashore, said officials aren’t sure what the object is, but it might have once served as a ship’s ballast tank — a compartment that holds water to stabilize the vessel.  “That’s our best guess at this point,” Kneifl said.  Kneifl said officials determined the 20-foot-long box is empty, so it does not post a health risk to the public. She said officials are still working on a plan to remove the object.  See the video HERE.
*********It’s Godzilla’s whiskey flask!!
*******It’s a 20-foot metal box… so three Florida families moved right in!!!

Darth Vader Helmet Collection Makes Move

A man who recently moved with his wife from the Washington, D.C., area to Texas brought along something unusual — his collection of more than 70,000 items related to Star Wars villain Darth Vader.  Bill McBride, who recently moved to the Rio Grande Valley with his wife, Rebecca, said he started collecting Darth Vader items when he was young and turned the “Vader Vault” into a serious collection about 30 years ago.  McBride estimated in 2015 that he had spent about $270,000 on what was then just over 60,000 items, and his collection has since grown to more than 70,000 items, with the total price unknown.  “I couldn’t afford my own collection today,” McBride told KVEO-TV.  McBride said his collection of toys, paintings, unique helmets and other items continues to grow.  “It’s something that still brings me joy and still truly makes me happy to do it. We all have our hobbies and our interests and this is something I truly enjoy,” he said.  See the video HERE.
*******Does he have a bag of Star Wars chips from “Darth Taters??” That’s a real thing!!
******Is this the definition of “going to the dark side??”

Woman Held Hostage By Possum

A New Zealand woman had to call the police for help when she found herself “being held hostage by a possum” in her home.  The University of Otago post-graduate student said she was unpacking her car at her home in Dunedin’s North East Valley when she felt something run up her leg.  “I pulled it off me, thinking it was a cat, and then I saw it was a possum,” the woman told the Otago Daily Times.  The woman said she fled into her house, and every time she tried to go outside, the possum would reappear and charge at her.  Animal control officers referred her to police, but the woman said she was having trouble getting through to the Dunedin Central Police Station, so she called the emergency number to report: “I’m being held hostage by a possum.” Sgt. Craig Dinnissen said an officer arrived at the woman’s home and was speaking with her through a window when the possum climbed the officer’s leg.  The officer was able to stun the possum using the beam of his flashlight, and the animal was placed in a box with some dried pet food.
******That possum was just starved for affection!!!
*******”Humped by a Possum” is the follow-up show to “Duck Dynasty!!”
*****He was just “playing human!!”







9 Signs You’re Ready To Quit Your Job

Huffington Post


  1. You realize you’re being undervalued.

Wanting a bigger paycheck (no surprise!) is the top reason that people decide to quit their jobs, according to a PayScale survey of over 38,000 respondents.

“The pay gap continues to be an issue for women, more specifically for Black, Indigenous, and other women of color. Compensation should match our contributions in the workplace, and when it doesn’t, we feel undervalued,” said workplace strategist Keni Dominguez.

If you’ve confirmed that you are underpaid and you’re not able to obtain a raise in a reasonable amount of time, Dominguez suggested reaching out to your network to see if anyone knows of new opportunities that could be a good fit.

The danger of staying is that you may start to sell yourself short, too. “The longer you stay someplace where you don’t feel like you’re valued or compensated adequately, it impacts how you think about your career and your work in general,” said Cicely Horsham-Brathwaite, a licensed psychologist and executive coach. “It lessens your awareness of what your strengths are, your skills are. You start to view yourself based on how your manager or the company demonstrates their value for you.”


  1. You realize your workplace values burnout culture.

When you’re expected to be available 24/7 and there is little tolerance for taking vacation or sick leave, you’re at a company that wants employees to work until they burn out. Get out while you can.

“They’re much more interested in you serving the company rather than the company serving you in any way,” said Lisa Orbé-Austin, a licensed psychologist and executive coach.

“An organization that has a burnout culture, I think it’s particularly dangerous for professionals because oftentimes they leave you with nothing left,” she added. “And it can be hard to search, it can be hard to be motivated to think about your next move if you’re in a burnout culture.”


  1. You need to numb yourself after work to do your work.

Burnout is a condition of chronic workplace stress that can lead you to feel increasingly disengaged and cynical about your job.

As a result, you may engage in numbing behaviors to survive the week or overindulge over the weekend to face Monday, Orbé-Austin said. People may “start drinking or they start playing video games to detach” when the workday ends, she said, noting that these behaviors can be an attempt to “soothe from the pain of the day.”

To determine whether your numbing behavior is related to work, track your symptoms, including when they are triggered and how often you engage in them, Orbé-Austin said.


  1. The job is causing you physical stress.

If the thought of your job is tormenting you with sleepless nights, muscle aches, stomach aches, headaches and other physical symptoms of stress, these are signs that your job is toxic. Long hours, lack of autonomy and economic insecurity can all contribute to the kind of harmful workplace environment that you need to ditch rather than try to cope with, organizational behavior experts previously told HuffPost.

When we are in periods of intense stress, it’s hard to make rational decisions. Horsham-Brathwaite advised talking with a mental health professional to weigh your options, including quitting or taking a leave of absence if your health has been compromised.


  1. You cry over going to work.

Career empowerment coach Melanie Denny said if you cry every day you go to work, that’s a sign to pay attention to.

“If you’ve reached a point where you dread going to the office, it’s definitely time to go. Although there are several reasons you may feel this way, none of them are worth your sanity and mental wellbeing,” Denny said. “Get out of there ASAP.”


  1. You can’t be yourself at work.

Pretending to be someone you’re not in order to succeed can take a heavy psychological toll.

“If you are in an environment that seeks conformity from people in order to be successful, that can begin to feel untenable,” said Horsham-Brathwaite. She gave the example of people who thrive on collaboration and sharing ideas being stuck in workplaces that value competition and individualism.

“I’ve heard people say, ‘I used to be warm and caring, I used to be relaxed. Now I find myself being manipulative or cutthroat and I almost don’t know who I am anymore,’” Horsham-Brathwaite said.

“If you feel the need to constantly code-switch or act like someone you’re not to fit in or gain approval from your boss, it’s not fair to you,” Denny said. “You cannot shine your light and be at your best if you’re not being who you are. There are many companies out there that allow you to share your personality and be unapologetically who you are. Start looking.”


  1. You are bored.

Learning keeps us motivated, and when you stop learning, it’s often a sign that you have outgrown your job. “If the work that you are doing doesn’t allow you to feel like you are accomplishing or achieving, I think that contributes to boredom for the people that I see,” said Horsham-Brathwaite.

If you feel like you’re doing the same thing over and over and you’re not getting opportunities to do the next thing that you’re ready for, that could be a sign you should move on, Orbé-Austin said.


  1. You spend more time thinking about opportunities outside your actual job.

If you find yourself being consumed by a passion that isn’t part of your job, that could be a sign that you are ready for a career switch.

“One of the biggest [signs of this] is where you just feel unsettled,” said Ramona Ortega, founder of My Money My Future, a personal finance platform. “Your interest in something else is compelling you to do research, read about it, go to meetup groups.”

Ortega said that when she finds herself reading, talking and daydreaming about a new career direction, that’s generally her cue that she’s ready for a change. When she was thinking of starting My Money My Future, she said she was compelled to act by “the nagging of ‘I have to do this, because if not me, whom?’”


  1. You feel uneasy.

Listen to the part of you that feels “off” when you’re at work.

“When you are not at ease with yourself … that is the cue you need to be moving in another direction,” media mogul Oprah Winfrey told a group of Stanford Graduate School of Business students in 2014. “The way through the challenge is to get still and ask yourself, ‘What is the next right move?’ Not thinking about, ‘Ohh, I got all of this to ―.’ ‘What is the next right move?’”

If you’re weighing whether quitting is your next right move, consider how much this feeling of unease has impacted all areas of your work.

“Most people aren’t jumping up and down for their jobs, but there’s still something they like about it ― they like their co-workers, they like coming into the office, they generally don’t mind their jobs or they’re looking for opportunities inside their company,” Ortega said. “They’re at ease, even if it’s not exciting every day.”

But when you’re “generally feeling uneasy with almost everything about your job, that’s probably the time” to leave, she said.
