    Amazon CamperForce, launched in 2008, recruits RVers and vandwellers from all corners of the country to work for months at a time during the peak holiday shopping season.Shay Martinez-Machen In 2017, Shay Martinez-Machen was having an identity crisis. She was pregnant with her son, and the private ambulance company she'd worked at for a decade went bankrupt, suddenly leaving her without a home or a job. "I went from corporate America to a stay-at-home mom overnight," Martinez-Machen, 33, said in an interview. "I didn't know who I was." Inspired by her parents, who had become "full-time nomads," Martinez-Machen, her wife America, and their two kids decided to hit the road in an RV. That summer vacation has since turned into a years-long lifestyle traveling around the country, picking up temporary jobs for months at a time. But each year since 2017, they've spent a few months working for one of...

    On Monday, January 17, 2011, Antena 3 premiered a new fiction as part of its grill: ‘El barco’. The production was presented at that time as heir to ‘El internado: Laguna negra’ and, in fact, it had members of its cast as protagonists, as were the cases of Blanca Suárez or Irene Montalà. Since then, the fiction has added a total of three seasons and 43 episodes, until its broadcast ended on February 21, 2013. The adventure of the Polar Star school boat managed to start its journey in front of 4,769,000 spectators, accumulating a 23.4% share, being the most watched in its history. A very different figure from the one obtained in its last episode, with which it achieved 15.8% with a total of 2,613,000 viewers, which did not prevent the production from saying goodbye with a good average of 17% share . Its success in Spain even crossed...

    As investigators work to determine a motive behind the Christmas Day bombing in Nashville, attention has turned to a Los Angeles entertainment executive who was gifted two Tennessee homes by the suspect. Michelle Swing, 29, was given the two properties – worth more than $400,000 combined – in the past two years, despite paying nothing for them, property records show. It remains unclear what Swing’s relationship was with 63-year-old Warner. Swing has refused to say how she knows Warner and has claimed to be unaware of a second quitclaim transfer.   Reached by the Daily Mail on Sunday, Swing claimed she had no idea about the second home and said she had been "told to direct everything else to the FBI." Investigators continue to examine the site of an explosion Sunday, Dec. 27, 2020, in downtown Nashville, Tenn.  (AP) Court records cited by the outlet revealed...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Newly sworn in Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón spoke out Thursday, just days after taking office, about his plans for the office. New Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón sat down with CBS Los Angeles Thursday to talk about his plans for the office. (CBSLA) “I am very committed to the safety of our community,” he said. “The first thing that I want people to know is to understand that I spent 40 years of my life working really hard to make communities safe and to protect victims, and I have a deep-rooted respect for policing. I spent most of my life in policing and then about 10 years as a district attorney.” Elected as a progressive, Gascón announced half a dozen new policies on his first day that got everyone talking — from police officers to community activists and crime victims.

    Acclaimed actor Ayushamnn Khurrana is also a brand today. He attributes his success to his ability to be himself. “I believe what has worked for me is that I decided to swim against the tide and was totally myself. I stayed true to who I am in real life while I was at it,” he said. The actor says he believed that India was ready to see a different kind of entertaining cinema that was real, relatable and taboo-breaking “because I was ready to see such cinema, and I knew of many people who were having the same dialogue with me”. Prithviraj Has Been Reportedly Roped In to Play Ayushmann Khurrana’s Role in Andhadhun’s Malayalam Remake Ayushmann says he is fortunate that people have loved his brand of cinema, which has hugely contributed to his equity. “I believed that India wanted to bring out and talk about societal issues openly....
    Poor digestion is one of the most miserable things to deal with. I know because I’ve dealt with digestion issues almost my entire life since having colic as a baby. When adopting a more plant-based diet almost 10 years ago, I had to practice trial and error many times to find foods that nourished me and didn’t affect the inflammation I’ve suffered with for years. Eliminating red meat had helped initially, but I soon found that certain healthy foods in a plant-based diet were causing multiple digestion issues I later learned were linked to IBS, leaky gut syndrome, and overall general indigestion too. I was first disheartened and worried I wouldn’t be able to eat a plant-based diet because so many of the foods I was eating didn’t work for me. Then I discovered the FODMAPS diet, which isn’t necessarily vegan but I soon customized it that way for me....
    Chin-ups may be an easier move for beginners than pull-ups. sanjeri/Getty Images The main difference between chin-ups and pull-ups is how you grip the bar.  For chin-ups, you grip the bar with your palms facing you, but with pull-ups, you grip the bar with your palms facing away from you.  As a result, chin-ups better work the muscles on the front of your body, like your biceps and chest, while pull-ups are more effective at targeting your back and shoulder muscles. This article was medically reviewed by Joey Thurman, CSCS, CPT, FNS, a Chicago-based fitness expert and MYX Fitness coach. Visit Insider's Health Reference library for more advice. Chin-ups and pull-ups are highly beneficial bodyweight exercises that target your entire upper body. And while you may use the terms interchangeably, the two moves are actually quite distinct. The big difference comes in how you grip the bar. Put most simply, chin-ups...
    US actor Chadwick Boseman poses in the press room during the 2019 American Music Awards at the Microsoft theatre on November 24, 2019 in Los Angeles. Valerie Macon/AFP via Getty Images After Chadwick Boseman's tragic death from colon cancer at age 43, fans and celebrities lauded everything the "Black Panther" actor accomplished in his too-short life. Some people with cancer said they found the discourse was rooted in misconceptions about living with the disease, as if it's a sudden acute illness rather than a disability.  Not everyone can or wants to work through cancer, Walela Nehanda, who has leukemia, told Insider.  Insider talked to three people who have or have had colon cancer about navigating careers and kids while coping with the disease.   Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.   When actor Chadwick Boseman died August 28 at the age of 43, after a private four-year battle...
    Republican strategist Adam Goodman joined the Daily Caller’s senior White House correspondent Christian Datoc for an exclusive interview Friday. Datoc first asked Goodman about his reaction to the recently wrapped Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Did President Donald Trump or former Vice President Joe Biden get a bigger bump from the festivities? Did anything about the events give Goodman a tip about how the final few months of the election will shape up for both campaigns? (RELATED: Election Dissection — Democratic Strategist Ameshia Cross Reacts To Trump’s RNC Speech) Goodman also touched on the tightening polls between Trump and Biden and told Datoc that Trump’s law and order messaging will ultimately make or break the election for him. Finally, Datoc asked Goodman — based on his experience during the 2000 Florida recount — to predict what might happen if anything, and we mean ANYTHING, delays the election results. Spoiler alert:...
    The virtual Democratic National Convention that ended Thursday night succeeded in portraying the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris ticket as competent, decent and welcoming to a broad-based coalition — while also making a powerful case for the defeat of President Trump in the November election. The core theme of the convention was focused on the need to stop Trump from serving a second term. The case for presidential nominee and former Vice President Biden was made over the course of the week by contrasting him and Trump on personal characteristics and leadership. With this overarching theme, the Democrats largely achieved the unstated objective of the convention: do no harm at a time when Biden is leading Trump in opinion polls. CHRIS WALLACE SAYS BIDEN BLEW 'A BIG HOLE' IN TRUMP'S 'MENTALLY SHOT' CLAIM WITH DNC ACCEPTANCE SPEECH Biden’s speech accepting the presidential nomination conveyed his leadership capabilities and upstanding character, which was...
    The third night of the Democratic National Convention featured notable speeches from former President Barack Obama, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris, among others. In terms of what worked on Wednesday night, former President Obama compellingly communicated the case for Biden’s candidacy, delivering an effective call-to-action and a strong rebuke of President Trump. Video“I never expected that my successor would embrace my vision or continue my policies. I did hope, for the sake of our country, that Donald Trump might show some interest in taking the job seriously. But he never did,” Obama said. BIDEN'S POLICY AGENDA TAKES BACKSEAT AT DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION AS SPEAKERS HAMMER TRUMP ON CHARACTER However, while Obama is an important surrogate for Biden, it is also clear that there are limitations to the former president's influence. Put simply, Biden cannot win the election by riding on Obama’s coattails. This is especially true...
    The second night of the Democratic National Convention made an effort to bridge the old and the new generations in the Democratic Party. The program featured speeches from several of the party’s most entrenched leaders, including former President Bill Clinton, as well as rising Democratic stars like progressive freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. In terms of what worked on Tuesday night, the Democrats in many ways succeeded in reminding many Americans why they had happily voted for the Democratic ticket and supported Democratic policies in the past. DOUG SCHOEN: DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION -- ON FIRST NIGHT THIS IS WHAT WORKED AND WHAT DIDN'T Indeed, the Democratic Party and policies that were on display Tuesday night—for instance, those of Clinton—are of a different period which, in large measure, succeeded in taking the country in a mostly positive and successful direction. VideoHowever, in terms of what did not work, with Ocasio-Cortez’s speech, the...
    The Democratic National Convention opened its first night Monday with an overarching theme of unity. The night featured prominent speakers who represent the broad general election coalition that Joe Biden is looking to build: progressives, centrist Democrats, independents, and moderate Republicans who have disaffected from Trump. To be sure, Biden’s polling lead is tightening, and by emphasizing big-tent inclusiveness, the Democrats are clearly hoping that the convention will jolt Biden’s campaign. LEO TERRELL: THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEFT ME THIS YEAR — HERE'S WHAT I AM GOING TO DO NOW A CNN poll released Sunday shows the race in a statistical dead heat, with Biden ahead of Trump by just 4-points, which is within the poll’s margin of error. Further, the same poll shows Biden leading Trump in battleground states by just 1-point. VideoAt this point, it isn’t clear whether the Democrats’ narrative that they “put country over party” can hold...
    Some time ago, I posted a question on social media that scores of people responded to: What jobs did your parents work to get you where you are today? I shared a bit about my mother, an immigrant from El Salvador who worked as a nanny and a garment factory worker; she cleaned houses, polished car rims, drilled holes in doorknobs, steam pressed people’s clothes. “¡Échele ganas,” she’d always tell me. Give it all you got. It’s a phrase, a call to action, many immigrants teach their kids early on to push them to aim high.

    My neck feels like burnt toast. My body is sore and I limp around the house, but strangely, I feel great. That’s the sign of good Pokemon Go Fest. Niantic pulled off a decent facsimile of its flagship event this weekend. Rare Pokemon spawned along with their shiny versions. The celebration had a storyline first featuring the celebration and then a takeover by Team Go Rocket. The only missing element was the spontaneous community that forms around the gathering. It’s the feeling of belonging when you see thousands of “Pokemon Go” players in one place and knowing that you are sharing the same experience as them. That’s when you meet new friends and find people who will trade you that missing Pokemon to complete a collection. Trainers also couldn’t challenge each other to local battles, which has become a bigger part of the game since the introduction of the Go...

    Experts have created a model depicting what Brits could look like if we were to work from home for the rest of our life.  The home worker of 2045 is represented by ‘Susan’, a scary rendering created by clinical psychologists and fitness experts. Susan suffers from hunched shoulders, double chin, obesity and ‘digital eye strain’ – dry, bloodshot eyes as a result of staring at a computer screen all day long. The model portrays the effects isolated working can have on our bodies if we don’t take the necessary steps to avoid them, according to job experts DirectlyApply. While many remote workers have enjoyed the extra sleep and comfy work attire during the coronavirus lockdown, future pandemics could mean the benefits are far outweighed by long-term physical effects on our body.  Meet Susan! Job experts DirectlyApply have created the model depicting what we could look like if we worked from...
    At least 55 million US students were affected by school closures related to the coronavirus pandemic. While all children are susceptible to regressing during this unstructured period, children with disabilities are especially vulnerable. Parents of children with disabilities told Insider that their children have lost speech, social skills, and have engaged in self-injurious behavior. Some parents are concerned about how their children will "catch up" even when schools reopen, since much of this type of development requires consistent, in-person therapy and time they can't gain back.
