    Getty Images Becca Kufrin calls Thomas Jacobs 'the one.' Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs met each other during the 2021 season of “Bachelor in Paradise.” The former “Bachelorette” star and the “Bachelorette” villain had a pretty good connection in Mexico, but Kufrin broke things off before the finale. The two reconnected after filming, and ended up rekindling what they had in “Paradise.” Jacobs and Kufrin seem to be doing really great, and they’ve been spending a great deal of time together, though they aren’t living together just yet. “We came back [home] and had to explore that on our own away from the cameras but in that moment [on the beach during the finale], I think that was game-changing for me. Because I have really never had somebody fight, I would say, like, tooth and nail to want to keep a relationship with me,” Kufrin said on the October 14, 2021, episode of the “Talking it Out” podcast. So, how are things going for the former reality stars? Here’s what you need to know:Kufrin Called Jacobs ‘the One’...

    Jill Biden on Monday unveiled a holiday theme close to the heart, tying together her love of learning with the challenges the country faced during the coronavirus pandemic and paying tribute to the former families that lived in the White House. 'Gifts from the Heart' will be the theme for the 2021 White House Holiday Season, the first lady revealed.  Inspiration for the theme came from the 'small acts of kindness and experiences that lifted our spirits this year and throughout the pandemic,' the East Wing said in a statement. Over 100 volunteers decorated the state rooms of the White House over the past week with adornments tied to the theme, including stacks of books, floating candles, and Christmas Tree decorations featuring photographs of previous first families.  Decorating the 55,000 square foot White House involved 41 Christmas Trees, 6,000 feet of ribbon, more than 300 candles and over 10,000 ornaments.  Even the famous Gingerbread White House - which is on display in the State Dining Room - was inspired by the 'gratitude and admiration for our Nation's frontline workers who kept our country...

    THERE is a new decorating tip that promises to save you time this holiday season. A home and style expert said the trick will change the way you adorn your Christmas tree.  3A home and life guru has shared her Christmas tree decorating hackCredit: TikTok / @casa_anguiano 3The trick is thought to make the Christmas tree look brighterCredit: TikTok / @casa_anguiano Nina, who markets herself as a “go to girl for affordable finds,” shared her Christmas tree decorating hack on TikTok.  Rather than walking around your Christmas tree wrapping the lights horizontally, she suggested hanging them vertically.  First, she said to place the end of the lights without the pronged plug at the top of the tree. “If you have a tree topper that needs to be plugged in, this will be very useful,” she noted.  “Then string them vertically.  "This will allow you to use less lights, it’ll appear brighter on your tree, and [is] easier to remove at the end of the season,” she concluded.

    With Veteran's Day approaching, former US Army Sergeant Josephine Bogdanich has a lot to celebrate.  The retired servicewoman recently marked her 105th birthday, making her one of the oldest living female WWII veterans in the United States.  She was also the oldest aboard the first ever all-female 'Honor Flight' to Washington, D.C., last month paying tribute to women who served in the military.  'I let everyone in charge know I had to be up at midnight to catch a 2am flight,' Bogdanich, a resident of the Veteran's Home in Manteno, Illinois since 2017, told DailyMail.com.  'I was so afraid they'd forget to wake me and I'd miss the opportunity of a lifetime to travel with 93 other female vets to the Vietnam Women's War Memorial and the Military Women's Memorial in Arlington, Virginia.'  'The trip was one of the highlights of my life.'  At the age of 105, army Sergeant Josephine Bogdanich, of Chicago, is one of the oldest living female WWII veterans in the US Sgt.

    MORRISTOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Trees are colorful and peaceful additions to yards across the Tri-State Area, but face many stressors that could be killing them from the inside out without anyone knowing. Experts refer to these trees as “Zombies,” CBS2’s Vanessa Murdock reported Monday. Some claw their way out of the ground, while others stand and wait for Halloween. That’s when these Zombies might strike. But, experts warn of the living dead all around us that could cause serious harm at any time. Zombie trees look alive, but are actually dying on the inside.

    This is the moment a sly leopardess crept within a few feet of an unsuspecting springbok before launching her deadly attack. Johan Cronje, 47, was on a family safari trip in Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park, which straddles the border of South Africa and Botswana, when he spotted the leopardess eyeing up the antelope as it grazed under a tree. Mr Cronje's footage captured the predator slowly crawling along on her belly, hidden below a sandy bank running alongside the track. The leopardess silently watches the unsuspecting springbok in Kgalagadi Transfrontier National Park, which straddles the border between South Africa and Botswana The predator crawls along her belly and makes her way along a small sandbank on the road The big cat then creeps up out of the road and, using the tree for cover, tiptoes closer to her prey as it continues to graze.   Just seconds later, the leopardess launches herself at her prey and a chase ensues between the pair.

    There’s an old saying: “You never know what you’ve got, until it’s gone.”  I can’t think of a better illustration of that principle than a mature street tree. It’s easy to miss how much a decades-old maple, like the one in front of my house, quietly transforms a street. “I probably took them for granted,” said Maureen Freberg, describing the rows of large, contiguous ash trees that lined her street in St. Paul’s Hamline-Midway neighborhood. “We had all these lovely trees developing this great canopy. When you suddenly take something away, you realize how much you really miss it. It really has changed the atmosphere on the street, so much more open, and so much more light.” Minnehaha Avenue, where Freberg lives, has long boasted the city’s best street trees. Fifty-year-old ash trees arched high over the pavement, large enough that their crowns just touched, forming a cathedral-esque natural enclosure. I’d regularly brave the rugged potholes in the bike lane, and go out of my way to travel Minnehaha. It was worth it to experience the tunneling effect of giant...
    An 18-year-old North Jersey man lost his leg after authorities said his drunk twin brother drove into a tree with him on the hood, his sister said. Anthony Dattoli of West Caldwell surrendered with his lawyer on Monday in connection with the June 27 hit-and-run crash that severely injured Joseph Dattoli, authorities said. Anthony Dattoli "was intoxicated and drove with his twin brother on the hood of his vehicle, ultimately crashing into a tree and leaving his brother with life-altering injuries," Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens II and West Caldwell Police Chief Dennis A. Capriglione Jr. said in a joint statement. Anthony remained held Tuesday in the Essex County Jail pending a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Newark on charges of aggravated assault, vehicular aggravated assault while intoxicated in a school zone, leaving the scene of an accident and endangering an injured victim, records show. Joseph Dattoli needs a prosthetic leg and nearly a dozen surgeries, their sister, Emma, wrote in a GoFundMe campaign.

    It’s Olympic time — which means that for the next few weeks, millions of Americans will breathlessly track the results from sports for which they otherwise wouldn’t care, and might not even know anything about. One such sport is badminton — a game that few are familiar with save for possibly a few volleys taken in their youth. During CNBC’s coverage of the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Mary Carillo delivered an explainer on the sport that ranks among the greatest sports rants ever delivered, and one that has arguably not gotten as much attention as it has deserved over the years. Carillo’s screed is something of a slow burn. Watch the first third of the video, which clocks in just under four minutes, and you’ll have no idea why it’s so good. But once she dispenses with the background and technical explainers, Carillo is off to the races. The thrust of the commentary is that the sport is horribly inconvenient for suburban parents who have to retrieve the birdies from trees, have neighborhood kids invade their house, and just...

    (CNN)It's pretty natural for people to take a look at the radar first thing in the morning to check on the morning commute, but for millions, what looked like light drizzle over Germantown was actually a swarm of cicadas... what?That's right, the radar imagery from the Washington, DC, area showed a patch of green just northwest of the city. What could have easily been mistaken for rain, wasn't. The big, black-winged insects that have emerged after their 17-year slumber were in such large numbers, they showed up on radar. "While weather radar is very precise, it would likely take hundreds of thousands, if not millions of cicadas to be able to see what we saw yesterday on radar," said CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen.The National Weather Service office in Baltimore/Washington, DC, tweeted this image, that caught a lot of attention over the weekend.Read MoreYou may have noticed a lot of fuzziness (low reflectivity values) on our radar recently.

    (CNN)Fifty years ago, NASA's Apollo 14 completed the third crewed mission to the moon. On board the spacecraft as it landed in the Pacific Ocean on February 9, 1971, was some unusual cargo -- about 500 tree seeds. The seeds -- loblolly pine, sycamore, sweetgum, redwood and Douglas fir -- had traveled with Stuart Roosa, one of the three NASA astronauts on the mission and a former US Forest Service parachute firefighter, sealed in small plastic pouches stored in a metal canister in his personal luggage. They were part of an experiment to see how seeds reacted to the space environment. Upon their return to Earth, the seeds were germinated by the Forest Service. Known as the "Moon Trees," the resulting seedlings were planted throughout the United States and the world, according to NASA. There was no systematic effort to keep track of them, but NASA has since tracked down about 60 trees -- mainly in the US but also ones in Brazil, Japan and Switzerland. Steve Miller, vice president of the Royal Astronomical Society and a professor at University...
    “APeople did not open the windows because they were afraid the animal would enter their homes. ” .. it is a croissant. The unusual story was revealed by the Animal Association of Krakow (KTOZ), which, on Facebook, revealed part of a phone conversation in which the resident announced the situation. Thinking it was a reptile, perhaps an iguana, the (frightened) woman decided to ask for help. Experts suspected that it may be an animal of this species, as it is currently unable to survive in the area due to its low temperature. But, anyway, they did their duty and went to the scene. Arriving at that address, they encountered an unusual situation: “a brown creature on a pink branch”, they explained on the social network. After realizing it was a crocodile – someone had to be thrown out to feed the birds – the researchers had a “laugh fit”. “This mysterious iguana is a croissant, a croissant – those French-style cakes,” he joked, however, calling on people to always be cautious when thinking that an animal might...

    DeChambeau has earned a big reputation for his power driving game. PGA Tour; Getty Images Bryson DeChambeau hit a terrible 46-yard drive during the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Thursday. DeChambeau hit his tee shot into the trees and it bounced out sideways. It was a shot any 25-handicapper can probably relate to. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Bryson DeChambeau channelled his inner 25-handicapper and hit one of the worst drives you'll ever see from a professional golfer on Thursday during a round at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. Teeing off at the 10th at Austin Country Club in a match against South Korea's Si Woo Kim, DeChambeau attempted to crush one of his now-signature long drives down the 393-yard hole.

    Alameda’s Jonas Dupuich is a giant in the world of bonsai — he teaches and lectures and runs the popular Bonsai Tonight blog, and his book, “The Little Book of Bonsai,” was published last year by Ten Speed Press. Podcasts are his newest project. With interest in bonsai increasing during the pandemic, he’s branched out to this medium. We talked with him about the art of growing small and how those who admire bonsai can move from enthusiast to grower. Q How would you describe bonsai to someone unfamiliar with this garden art? A “Bonsai,” which translates to “tray planting” in Japanese, refers to the practice of growing small trees in containers that evoke larger trees in nature. Q How did you get into bonsai?

"For instance, do you see anything right now?" he asked the audience. The biologist then glanced down towards the tiny gecko - which was in the frame all along.

    Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX) waxed poetic about lynchings in the middle of a hearing to address the recent rise in hate crimes against Asian Americans. The House Judiciary Committee held the hearing on Thursday — a proceeding which comes two days after six Asian women and two other were killed after a shooter attacked multiple spas in Atlanta, GA. Roy spoke about how “all Americans deserve protection and to live in a free and secure society” and that the Atlanta victims deserve justice, but then he diverted to an old saying that fondly recalled lynchings in Texas. We believe in justice. There’s old sayings in Texas about find all the rope in Texas and get a tall oak tree. You know, we take justice very seriously, and we ought to do that. Round up the bad guys. That’s what we believe. Roy went on to slam the hearing as a political exercise infringing on free speech and criminal justice. He further diverted from the matter at hand in order to go on a harangue against China. Mediaite reached out to...
    THE pandemic has caused Britain’s deepest economic downturn in three centuries. Since the first lockdown, our cash-strapped Government has been living on tick. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates... 8How Rishi Sunak could use his Budget to start weaning the economy off the Bank Of England Money Tree In the House of Commons on Wednesday, Rishi Sunak’s Budget statement will confirm the biggest annual deficit in our history. The Government has borrowed a staggering £400billion over the past year — EIGHT TIMES more than in 2019. The Chancellor, though, will roll the dice once again. He will risk even higher borrowing to keep the economy moving before Covid restrictions are finally eased. Will this gamble pay off, with more public spending kick-starting growth, sparking a post-lockdown boom? Or will it finally bankrupt Britain?
