Happy weekend, everyone! Want some fun new things to do on your phone? I got you.
Here are the Top 3 Apps you may need for your weekend:
#3 I don’t support this App, but I guess I get it. Times are hard and sometimes it’s difficult to be thoughtful all by yourself (sarcasm). Thank you, technology(also sarcasm)! Here’s what I’m talking about: (Jimmy explains it and Mr. Reedus shows you how it works.)
#2 Tickle. This could be useful if your planning to attend a party or a blind date this weekend. Could be a good alternative to making your friend wait around all night for your signal to call and make up a fake emergency…
#1 Okay, this app isn’t super new, but I just discovered it last night and will definitely be using it…lots.
What fun Apps do you use? Tell me!
Today, I was bombarded with stories in the news about people doing bad things. I would like to share some of those stories with you 1) to provide an example of what NOT to do and 2) to make you feel better about how awesome of a person YOU are. Because you would never be caught doing any of these things…right??????
Here are the Top 3 bad things people did today:
#3 A mom in Lancaster, Pennsylvania was arrested after an 8-hour shoplifting spree inside Walmart. She spent the entire night in the store with her three toddlers and tried to leave with $500 worth of stolen merchandise. So, she was not only teaching her kids how to shop lift, but also how to be inconsiderate. I’m sure those kids did NOT want to hang out in Walmart for 8 HOURS. Rude.
#2 California Sheriff’s are looking for two people who bought Girl Scout Cookies with counterfeit money. Using counterfeit money is bad. Don’t do it. Making those poor Girl Scouts worry about counterfeit money is worse. They just want to worry about who sold the most cookies and who got the coolest prize, not your dumb fake money.
#1 There’s a guy who cheated on his wife, wrecked the family van and then bought a new truck that is too small for the family to use.
Good news though, the wife responded to his actions with this Craigslist ad:
Where does the time go? Now we know. A study broke down exactly how much time American adults spend with digital media. On a typical day, we pass 11 hours watching TV, using our smartphones and browsing the internet, among other activities. The number-one source of electronic media is live TV, which we spend more than five hours watching per day. In second place is radio, which we listen to for two hours and 46 minutes a day. Smartphones come in third (one hour and seven minutes), followed by internet on a PC, timeshifted TV (shows recorded on our DVRs), video game consoles, DVD/Blu-Ray players and multimedia devices.
This may finally get people to take climate change seriously. Chipotle warns that environmental factors may force them to stop offering guacamole! The company says climate change could eventually affect the availability and prices of certain crops. By threatening to remove some beloved items from the menu- including guacamole and some salsas- Chipotle seems to be using its influence to make a political statement about climate change, while promoting itself at the same time. Environmental destruction is one thing, but a nationwide guacamole shortage? That would be a disaster.
The Scholastic Aptitude Test, better known as the SAT, is undergoing some major changes for the first time in nearly a decade. The updated college entrance exam aims to more accurately represent what high school students are learning in school. Among the changes, the test will return to its 1600-point scoring format, which was changed in 2004. And, there will no longer be a penalty for wrong answers- a policy that discouraged test-takers from guessing. Certain vocabulary words will be replaced with more commonly-used words. The essay portion will be made optional. Math questions will focus on problem-solving and algebra. And for the first time, students will have the option of taking the SAT on a computer. Some educators believe the new test will be less stressful for students. They have plenty of that to look forward to in the real world.
I’m still coming off my Oscar-high. Combine that with having the best friends on the planet and Tah Dah! Wouldn’t it be great to be invited to run lines with Ben Affleck & Matt Damon’s? Or have a girls night out with Courteney Cox & Jennifer Aniston? OR just have a silly hangout with Zach Braff & Donald Faison?? Yea. That would rock.
Here are my Top 3 favorite Celebrity BFFs:

#2 Justin Timberlake & Jimmy Fallon
#1 Tina Fey & Amy Poehler

Consumers are sizing up Target’s selection of plus-size clothes, and they’re not happy. Several shoppers around the country have noticed recently that their local Target stores seem to have done away with their plus-size sections entirely. After multiple complaints, a spokesperson eventually responded, claiming that Target is “absolutely not exiting the plus-size business.” In fact, they’re revamping their offering of plus-size duds, and experiencing a slight delay with the spring collection. For now, plus-size shoppers can either be patient, or visit Target.com for a wider selection. But the controversy raises a commonly-debated issue about plus-size clothing- specifically, why larger shoppers are so often overlooked.
More than half of children between the ages of 10 and 14 have TVs in their bedrooms. And while this may make them some of the most popular kids in the neighborhood, it appears to be bad for their health. A study found that having a TV in the bedroom is associated with one extra pound of weight gain per year, compared to kids without TVs in their rooms. It’s a well-documented fact that too much sedentary behavior- for instance, sitting around watching TV – is unhealthy and can contribute to piling on the pounds. Experts warn it’s not just TVs that pose a risk- laptops, tablets and smartphones can all contribute to weight gain over time as well.
