    There are plenty of things I know I'll do differently next time. Abigail Robertson for Insider Last year, I spent 2 months turning a 2012 Ford Transit Connect into a micro-cabin on wheels. Since taking it on the road, I've realized there are plenty of things I wish I'd done differently. Tackling a fast reno schedule in the middle of winter while working full-time wasn't a good combo.

When 2020 hit with all of its uncertainties, I knew there was no better time to start van life. I was working remotely, so I retreated to my childhood home in Ohio and spent two months and $12,500 turning a 2012 Ford Transit Connect into what I fondly call my micro-cabin on wheels. There are lots of things I'm proud of, but since hitting the road, I've learned...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders HC Jon Gruden. During Jon Gruden‘s absence from the NFL, he became a star analyst at ESPN. His Monday Night Football commentary was very popular as was his Quarterback Camp show. He was also the company’s highest-paid personality for a time before the Las Vegas Raiders paid him big money to coach the team. A reason Gruden may have decided to ditch ESPN for another NFL head coaching gig was the person they assigned to be his partner during Monday Night Football games after Mike Tirico departed. Sean McDonough replaced Tirico and he simply didn’t work well with Gruden. He’s been honest about that in the past. Recently, he decided to get more candid about the situation and did a deep dive on why things didn’t work with the Super Bowl-winning coach. “I think, to be totally candid, Jon Gruden enjoyed the X-and-O part of it,” McDonough said on the SI Media Podcast with Jimmy Traina. “He loved the telestrator. He told me when I first got the job, ‘I don’t like stories.’ So...
    Lisa Kudrow is opening up about a role that she was fired from just days into filming -- but fret not for the star because Kudrow ended up landing her role on "Friends" after the ousting. While joining her sitcom co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox on Wednesday’s edition of Sirius XM's "The Howard Stern Show," Kudrow, who played Phoebe on the beloved 30-minute program, revealed that she was also tapped to play Roz Doyle on "Frasier" but was pulled from the gig three days into filming its pilot episode. "I wasn't right for the part [or] for the chemistry of the group. So that wasn't working but I did think, 'Oh, I am not this guy's cup of tea,'" she said of director James Burrows and his decision to scrap Kudrow for that of Peri Gilpin, according to People magazine. The Kelsey Grammer-led "Frasier" ran for 11 seasons on NBC from 1993 to 2004. Paramount+ announced in February that a revival series was given the go-ahead with Grammer, 66, set to reprise his role as Frasier Crane. THE SHOCKING...
    Accused socialite Jasmine Hartin shunned high society to carouse with working class cops in Belize at a tropical speakeasy famed for its soundproofed party rooms and marijuana-laced cognac. The mom-of-two, who faces a manslaughter by negligence charge for killing police Superintendent Henry Jemmott, was a regular patron at the Crazy House Bar n Kitchen in San Pedro, according to owner Gene Lopez. Lopez told DailyMail.com how care-free Hartin, 32, would buy round after round of drinks while entertaining pals with karaoke renditions of Bob Marley and the smash hit Shaggy song 'It Wasn't Me.' The businessman says he never witnessed the daughter-in-law of British billionaire Lord Michael Ashcroft taking drugs or drinking to excess but had to tell her off on several occasions for climbing on the countertop to perform 'ass-shaking' Caribbean dance moves. In an extraordinary twist, Lopez, who also runs a security firm, was one of the first people to come across Hartin after she 'accidentally' shot dead father-of-five Jemmott in the Belizean coastal resort of Ambergris Caye.  Canadian socialite Jasmine Hartin was a regular at...

    PIERS Morgan says he's "still working" with ITV and "wasn't fired" as he called his former CNN co-star a "treacherous backstabber". The presenter sensationally quit Good Morning Britain last week following his controversial comments about Meghan Markle. 6Piers Morgan confirms he's still working with ITVCredit: Rex However, Piers has confirmed he's "still working" with the channel despite walking out on their flagship news show. He confirmed the news during a fiery Twitter confrontation with his former CNN co-star Ana Navarro-Cárdenas. Retweeting an article about his departure from GMB, Ana wrote: "If no other change comes out of the #OprahMeghanHarry interview, that it lead to @piersmorgan getting fired again from yet another job, seems like a good outcome for the benefit of humanity." Piers hit back: "Hi Ana, I wasn't fired by ITV (I'm still working for them) just as I wasn't fired by CNN (I was offered a new 2-year deal - ask Jeff). But great to see you're just as big a treacherous little back-stabber now as you were when I worked at CNN."...
    FEDERICO MACHEDA has admitted that loan moves and the wrong mentality prevented him from becoming a Manchester United star. Few have burst onto the scene like the Italian, who struck two winners in his first two games for the club. 4Federico Macheda struck a stunning winner past Aston Villa on his debutCredit: Getty - Contributor 4Sir Alex Ferguson rang the Italian last year to check up on his progress A stunning injury-time effort against Aston Villa in April 2009 was followed up by a sharp finish past Sunderland a week later. Alas, the Italian failed to live up to his early promise and has opened up on his rise, fall, and rise again. After almost two years in the United setup, he was sent on loan to Sampdoria for a spell that hammered his confidence. Macheda, 29, told the Mail: "Those six months marred my career because they tried to kill me as a footballer. "I started to doubt myself a little bit.

    Jennifer Lopez has found one bright side to COVID-19 quarantine — she’s able to spend more time with her 12-year-old twins, Max and Emme. “I actually loved being home and having dinner with the kids every night, which I hadn’t done in probably—ever,” Lopez, 50, recently told WSJ. Magazine. “And the kids kind of expressed to me, like, the parts that they were fine with about our lives and the parts they weren’t fine with.” The “Dinero” singer said the extra time spent at home this year has taught her a lot about her relationship with the pre-teens. “It was just a real eye-opener and a reassessment, to really take a look at what was working and what wasn’t working,” she told the mag. “You thought you were doing OK, but you’re rushing around and you’re working and they’re going to school and we’re all on our devices.” She explained that while she always made sure her kids were taken care of, she learned she wasn’t necessarily there every time they needed her. “We’re providing this awesome life for them,...

    Actor Don Murray reminisced on his time working alongside Marilyn Monroe in a recent interview. Murray, who starred in “Bus Stop” with Monroe, was surprised at how famous the starlet was at the time, according to an interview published Saturday by Closer Weekly. “I had been overseas, so I didn’t know much about her,” he explained. “I was totally taken aback by how important a movie star she was. There was press around all the time because of her.” That doesn’t surprise me at all. Everyone was enamored with Monroe when she was at her peak. Murray did note that Monroe wasn’t the easiest to work with. (RELATED: REPORT: New Docuseries Claims There Might Be New Evidence In Marilyn Monroe’s Death) “She had difficulty remembering her lines, so we had to do many takes,” Murray said. “Often, when we were doing a scene, she would get so emotionally involved that she’d go off her mark. The director told me to put my hands on her hips and move her to her marks. That’s what I did whenever we...

It meant that, after guaranteeing himself a £7.6m payday for taking the fight, Mayweather made an obscene amount of money for just three minutes' work.

    Career transitions are equal parts scary and exhilarating. And if transformation is truly what you desire, then there are few reasons not to take a chance. Life is too short not to do what you love. How do I know? Well, I went through a significant career transition. After spending over a decade working for NASA as an electrical engineer, I received my real estate license. Making the radical move from rocket scientist to real estate professional wasn’t an easy transition. There’s no doubt that guiding astronauts on the International Space Station to repair their equipment in space is a far cry from guiding home buyers and sellers on their real estate journeys. What helped me the most was figuring out how to apply the lessons learned in my first career to my blooming real estate career.

    Raverro Stinnett’s life changed drastically in the spring of 2018. The artist, who was waiting for a ride home on public transportation at Union Station after attending a gala at RedLine gallery, was profiled, beaten and left with permanent brain damage by security guards with Allied Universal Security Services, the firm that contracts with the Regional Transportation District to keep the peace at the station. Stinnett wasn't identified in early coverage of the incident, nor when the guards pleaded guilty in December 2018. But that changed earlier this year when he filed a lawsuit against Allied and RTD. Not long after that, George Floyd’s murder at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer blew the lid off the simmering Black Lives Matter movement. That’s all it took for Stinnett’s story to go nationwide. Yet with the exception of boardmember Shontel Lewis, the RTD board has voted to continue working with Allied.

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — It’s back to school for Sacramento City Unified students, one of the last districts in the area to make their return. But no set distance learning plan is in place.

    Sir Elton John has always been gracious on the topic of his brief marriage to German recording engineer Renate Blauel. In 2017, he called her ‘a wonderful woman for whom I have so much love and admiration’. In his autobiography, published last year and entitled Me, he wrote that Renate had been ‘decent and dignified’ about the end of the marriage after four years. Both claimed — between 1984 and 1988 — to be happy and ‘in love’ with each other, with Elton talking about how much he cared for her. He said he wanted nothing more than to stay at home in Windsor with his young bride and become a ‘family man’.

    This clip is too hot to handle. A female health-care worker in western China wrung buckets of sweat out of her hazmat suit after working tirelessly to combat the coronavirus in the sweltering summer heat.
