The Voice Does Retro Movie Trailer Promo Video For Season 13- WATCH

The Voice is throwing it back to the ‘70s in a new promo for the show’s 13th season.

The clip is definitely more like a movie trailer of an action packed 70’s movie. It featuring mentors Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson who are all judges on season 13 of The Voice. There are explosions, car chases, fake punches and bell bottoms galore.

Adam crashes through a glass window, Blake proves he’s a master of disguise, Miley hangs on to the hood of a car, and Jennifer swirls nunchucks like a pro. Even host Carson Daly makes an appearance as a clumsy mechanic named Lug Nut.

The Voice premieres September 25 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

$759M Powerball Winner Is a Massachusetts Hospital Worker

Hey, you can’t win if you don’t play and this woman is glad that she played… A single winning Powerball ticket for Wednesday’s $758.7 million grand prize was sold at the Pride Station &amp; Store in Chicopee, Massachusetts, to a local hospital worker. It’s the largest jackpot with a single winner in North American history, according to a lottery spokesman. Fifty-three-year-old Mavis L. Wanczyk tells the AP she was leaving work at night with a Chicopee firefighter when she realized she’d won, and is opting to take a lump sum payment which amounts to $336 million after taxes. As for what she’ll do with her newfound riches, she says her first priority is to “sit back and relax” after quitting her job, which she’s already done. The chances of picking all six winning numbers in the Powerball stand at about one in 292 million. That means you’re way more likely to be killed by an asteroid (1 in 700,000), be struck by lightning while drowning (1 in 183 million), or give birth to quadruplets (1 in 729,000). Looks like it was Mavis’s lucky day.

Gwen Stefani has admitted she might consider leaving  The Voice to be a judge on  American Idol. “That would, like, I don’t know,” Stefani tells E! News. “You never know what could happen. You just never know… but I doubt it.” Despite the hesitation, Stefani goes on to explain that she loves being on  The Voice and feels that it “fuels” her musical side.

Mel B of Spice Girls Walks Off Stage When Simon Cowell Jokes About Her Marriage

Uh oh… things are getting a little tense between the judges on America’s Got Talent… Mel B of the Spice girls stormed off the  America’s Got Talent stage on Tuesday night after fellow judge Simon Cowell made a crack about her wedding to estranged husband Stephen Balafonte. Mel B is in the middle of a very bitter and public divorce battle and Cowell’s ill-timed joke was delivered after a magician suffered a technical malfunction during his performance. “I kind of imagine this would be like Mel B’s wedding night,” Cowell remarked as the audience gasped. “A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.” The quip clearly struck a nerve with Mel B, who proceeded to fling her glass of water at Cowell, which in that moment, she kind of looked as though she was being playful and wasn’t effected by the comment but then walking out of the studio live on air. “Mel B is out,” host Tyra Banks declared as she watched the drama go down. “This is live TV, y’all. Live TV.” Cowell responded to the chaos by merely looking amused.

Study Reveals The Age That People Start To Hate Their Jobs

Have you had that moment where you’re sitting at work, it seems like every other day, and suddenly you stop . . . take a look around . . . and say, “Oh my God.  THIS is my life?”

HERE’S when that moment happens.

According to a new study out of England, the age when people are most likely to start hating their job is . . . 35. The researchers found that about one in six people age 35 and up say they’re completely unhappy at work.

That’s more than double the number of younger people who feel that way.

Why?  One of the researchers says in your mid 30s, quote, “There comes a time when either you haven’t achieved success, work has burned you out, or experience tells you family is more important.  So you ask yourself:  ‘What am I doing this for?'”

The Chicken Maki Roll is currently available at two locations in Chicago, but will be available at other stores in the future. Coffee and sushi… yum?

New Study Shows How To Help Your Future Child Get Into Ivy League College

Apparently, it has been discovered that there is a way to help your future child get into an ivy league college… and it has nothing to do with your parenting skills or the child’s habits.  Two studies this week revealed the odds are stacked against summer-born children getting into elite higher education. And here is their reasoning behind that statement…

The obstacles faced by summer-born children have been well-documented.  Previous  research has shown that, in a system where the school year starts in September, August-born children are likely to get worse grades than their September-born peers, and are less likely to graduate from college. They are also more likely to be assessed with special educational needs.

It is not only in education that the effect of summer birth is pronounced. There is also  research suggesting that fall — or autumn — born children are more likely to excel in sport.

This is such a believed theory that the UK Government has started a plan to let summer born children start school with their age group instead of holding them back a year.

Factors including social and emotional skills and intellectual development — as well as physical skills such as the ability to hold a pencil — are among the reasons put forward in previous studies for the attainment gap felt by summer-born children.

The study was analyzing birth and school records data from almost one million children who went through Florida’s public schools system, the study’s authors found that August-born children were both less likely to go to selective universities, and more likely to be incarcerated.

On average, September-born children were 2.1% more likely to go to college, 3.3% more likely to graduate from college and 7.2% more likely to graduate from a selective or competitive college than August-born children. They were also 15.4% less likely to be jailed for juvenile crime before The authors note that ‘being relatively young at school entry has some lasting implications’, adding that ‘the age at school entry may still impact children through their lifetime via their educational opportunities.’

 

What do you think about this study and the results?

 

Missed Today’s Eclipse? Start Making Plans for the Next One

Now that the Great American Eclipse is finally underway, people across the country are sharing their eclipse photos and experiences. If you’re one of the millions of people who didn’t journey to the path of totality, you might be feeling a little left out.

For instance, I’m trapped in New England, about the farthest away I could be while still inside the continental United States. At the eclipse’s peak, the sun will only be covered about halfway for my viewpoint. But it’s okay, because it’s only a few short years until the next one. If you’re missing today’s eclipse, start making plans for April 8, 2024.

The 2024 eclipse will cross the U.S. from south to north, passing through Mexico, on to Texas and Ohio, and then across New York to Maine. For people in the south or northeast, the 2024 American eclipse will be much closer to home than today’s.

So start planning now! Take that vacation to Vermont like you always wanted. Visit upstate New York or Austin, Texas. If you missed today’s eclipse, be sure you’re there to see the next one. If you can’t wait until 2024, you can also catch one in Chile or Argentina in just two years on July 2, 2019.

It’s not often you get multiple chances at a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Atlanta Falcons Put Chick-Fil-A In Their New Stadium…

The Atlanta Falcons’ new BILLION DOLLAR stadium has something that most people would be HAPPY to hear was there. Chick-fil-a is one of the most successful food chains out there so of course they thought it would be a great idea and it makes sense, because the chain’s headquarters is in Atlanta, and it was founded in nearby Hapeville, Georgia, all the way back in 1967.  But what DOESN’T make sense is that it’ll be CLOSED ON SUNDAYS, which of course is the day that most NFL games are held.     Chick-Fil-A has always been closed on Sundays for religious reasons, and if they haven’t changed that policy in 50 years, it’s not surprising that they aren’t making an exception this time.  But that means Falcons fans will only have ONE opportunity to try the Chick-Fil-A in the stadium, because their only non-Sunday home game is on Thursday, December 7th against the New Orleans Saints.  Of course, the kiosk will be open for other non-Sunday events, including Saturday college football games.   And naturally, there will be other areas in the stadium to get some chicken . . . including a place that’s selling a chicken sandwich called “Closed on Sundays”. LOL so there are options but was it a waste to put a chick-fil-a in a football stadium?
