The Russian “Sex Doll” Race

After a nine-year hiatus, the infamous “Russian Sex Doll Race” has returned! Officially it is known as the “Bubble Baba Challenge.” The world’s most raucous race involves a river race in which participants use a beloved sex doll to ride the rapids.

According to locals, the tradition began “as a joke at a party where the men got drunk, and the women didn’t show up,” said founder Dmitry Bulavinov.

Racers and their inflatable playmates came to compete from 2003 to 2011 on the Losevsky threshold in the Leningrad region, but the event was put on hold in 2012, supposedly for “construction and administrative reasons.” 

But this year, the totally inappropriate – and therefore fun – event returned. Around 500 men and women jumped into the Losevsky Rapids on the Vuoksi River with their blow-up babes over the weekend of June 26. Though technically still banned, the intrepid racers and the rubberized partners ignored the red tape and off-limits signs to hilariously wade through the water on dolls, despite the efforts of authorities to forbid the bawdy event.

Ahead of the contest, there were complaints of traffic problems as cyclists rode to the event carrying the inflatable dolls on their bikes. 

“It’s a highlight of the summer,” said one male swimmer clutching his sex doll.

Baba in Russian can mean “countrywoman,” but is sometimes used in a sexually derogatory way.

The organizers say the event is back for good. Do you think that you might want to participate next year? You can. All you have to be is over 16, able to swim, and sober Alcohol tests are administered before the race, so they actually take that last requirement seriously. And don’t worry if you don’t have your own sex doll, or if you do and care too much about her to use her in this way, event organizers say they buy the blow-up dolls in bulk before the race and rent them out to qualifying participants.

As to why the organizers of Baba Bubble decided to return this year after accepting the ban for so long was because people needed some good old fashioned fun after the long battle with COVID-19, and June 26 marked the 50th anniversary of the Vuskova water festival, which was also revived over the weekend.

While we don’t know who won – or what the prize was, but everyone seemed to have a blast and was happy for this odd tradition to return. The New York Post uploaded some great footage of the event if you would like to see for yourself what all the buzz is about.

As news and images of the bizarre sex doll race “blow up” on social media, it’s probably only a matter of time till we see this activity spreading to the US!

New Charges for Doomsday Cult Leader Lori Vallow Daybell

“Doomsday cult mom” Lori Vallow Daybell, who earlier this year was deemed mentally unfit for trial in the deaths of her two children and her new husband’s ex-wife, has been indicted on a new count of conspiracy to commit murder first-degree in the death of her ex-husband.

Lori Vallow Daybell, along with her current husband Chad Daybell, were charged earlier this year in Idaho with murder and conspiracy, among others offenses, in connection with the deaths of several people, including Lori’s two youngest children. Lori was later also indicted in Phoenix, Arizona, on a charge of conspiring to murder her ex-husband.

In May, Daybell was declared to be mentally unfit to stand trial.

According to local Fox News affiliate FOX 10, Phoenix, a Maricopa County grand jury indicted Daybell in connection with the 2019 death of Charles Vallow in suburban Phoenix. The two-page indictment alleges that Daybell conspired with her brother, Alexander Cox, to kill Vallow. 

Cox did fatally shoot his brother-in-law in a home in Chandler, Ariz., on the same day he had conspired with Daybell to do so in July 2019, but he claimed self-defense and died four months later. 

Vallow had been seeking a divorce from Daybell at the time. He said that Lori had been exhibiting bizarre behavior, telling the divorce court that  Lori believed she was a God-like figure who was supposed to usher in the end times.

Investigators had recommended an additional charge in connection with her ex’s death in the Phoenix suburb ahead of her competency hearing. Police had been pushing for charges since at least August 2020.

“Complex, difficult cases of this nature take time to properly investigate and solve,” County Attorney Allister Adel said in a statement to FOX10. “I appreciate the tremendous number of hours the dedicated officers of the Chandler Police Department have invested, and my office is equally committed to bringing those responsible for Charles Vallow’s death to justice.”

The complex cases against Daybell and her current husband, Chad Daybell, has spanned almost four years and a handful of states, involving her two dead children and a pair of slain ex-spouses, and a possible accomplice brother who died before the entire conspiracy came to light.

In 2018, while each still married to their exes, the two began dating, and within months, the romance took a macabre twist. Joshua “JJ” and Rylee Ryan Vallow, ages 7 and 17, were reported missing in January 2019.

Chad Daybell has also been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his ex-wife, Tammy Daybell, weeks before he married Lori Vallow. Soon after, Cox shot and killed Lori’s ex, Charles.

The two have maintained their innocence.

The new charge is a Class 1 felony. What will happen to Lori next is unclear.

The Murder Gracie Spinks

Michael Sellers is believed to have attacked Miss Spinks as she tended her horse before killing himself. Friends and neighbors who knew Sellers have since come forward and described him as a “weirdo” and a “perverted stalker.” One described him as a “creepy-looking” loner who could not make eye contact.

Neighbors have also now revealed he would use binoculars to spy on women. Sellers is thought to have become obsessed with Miss Spinks while they worked at Chesterfield e-commerce firm Xbite Ltd.

This week, his neighbors spoke to the local Derbyshire press about his odd behavior. One, who asked not to be named, said, “I found him a little strange. He would never speak or give you eye contact if he saw you in the street. He would spy on people from his parents’ home, especially women. I’m convinced I once caught him looking at me through a pair of binoculars.”

The unnamed source went on, “A friend told me she thought he had followed her once. It was really creepy behavior. He wasn’t a bad-looking lad – just odd. It’s terrible what happened.”

Another neighbor said, “I always said he was a little strange. He’d never speak to anyone but just stare. It’s scary that someone living so close to us could have murdered that woman.”

Another neighbor said, “I have a daughter, and I’m glad he didn’t speak to her.”

One of his co-workers said of Sellers, “He was strange. He became very weird at work, going like blank and staring at people. The women became wary of him. Hardly anyone liked him. He was a real loner.”

Sellers, 35, is thought to have fatally attacked Miss Spinks, 23, as she tended to her horse, Paddy, at a farm in Duckmanton, on Friday, June 18.

Shortly after her body was found, he was discovered dead in fields half a mile away.

Friends have told how Sellers became obsessed with Miss Spinks following a date and continued to turn up at the stables. She contacted police to say she was being stalked by Sellers. Derbyshire police are now being investigated by the UK’s Independent Office for Police Conduct over the contact they had with her prior to her death.

According to the Daily Mirror, one of Miss Spinks’ work friends claimed, “It’s going around that she had a stalker who was totally obsessed with her. He wouldn’t take no for an answer, so she got a restraining order out against him.”

In a heartbreaking tribute, Miss Spinks’ mother, Alison Heaton, wrote on Facebook, “My beautiful daughter Gracie taken away from me, her dad and brother and sister and everyone who loved and cared for her.”

Mrs. Heaton added broken heart and crying emojis and changed her Facebook profile picture to a photo of her daughter with a pink frame stating, “Stop violence against women, justice for women.”

Heaton wants people to support a petition to be sent to Prime Minister Boris Johnson calling for a “Gracie’s Law” demanding harsher punishment for stalkers, especially those who threaten a woman’s life.

Viral Video Proves Aliens Are Among Us

A viral video has been making the rounds that pretty clearly shows what is known in UFO circles as a “gray” alien walking in front of the camera. The video that shows a “strange figure” walking down a road in Jharkhand, India, has sparked a frenzy on social media.  

Chilling footage of what is now being called the “Jharkhand alien” has been shared thousands of times on Twitter. The video emerged after a group of motorcyclists appeared to film a mysterious figure walking down a poorly lit road in Jharkhand, a state in eastern India. At first glance, UFO enthusiasts have claimed, the tall and slender figure appears to resemble a character straight out of an X-file episode. The viral video clip shows the figure emerge from the dark, illuminated by the front lights of the group’s motorcycles.

The bikers seem to approach the figure with some degree of trepidation, and they can be heard talking to one another. At one point towards the end of the brief clip, the figure turns around and looks at the group before continuing down the road and into the darkness.

The video has sparked a number of bizarre theories, with some claiming it was a ghost and others suggesting it was an alien visitor.

Ashutosh Gautam, the person or posted the original video to Twitter, even tagged NASA in the tweet in a bid to share the video far and wide.

Scott Waring, a popular UFO hunter, and conspiracy theorist has weighed in on the bizarre clip, unsurprisingly claiming the figure is an alien. He analyzed the footage on his UFO blog, UFOSightingsDaily.com, where he frequently posts questionable pictures and videos of UFO reports from around the globe.

He said of the “Jharkhand alien,” “A strange figure was seen…resembling an alien or ghostly figure was recorded along a road in India this week. Motorists were riding past when one motorcyclist with a helmet cam recorded a strange figure walking carelessly along the road.”

Waring continues, “The figure looks human enough. However, its arms are 20 percent longer than humans. The whitish figure looks to be wearing a skin-tight outfit, or they are nude.”

Waring went on to claim aliens have finally taken a step towards revealing themselves to us – but he fears the bikers squandered the opportunity. He added, “Aliens are getting closer and closer; my advice when you see one, stop and chat with it. Perhaps it wanted to give the cure to COVID to someone, but no one would approach it.”

Concluding his analysis, Waring said, “Perhaps it wanted to give them the secrets to immortality, and yet, no one cared enough to approach it and greet the alien.” 

However, others seem to think that the video is something a little more down to Earth, if not still somewhat unusual – a very skinny nude woman taking a stroll. In fact, since the video has gone viral, one of the men who was there and actually shot the video contacted a local Indian news channel and told them that is exactly what it was, not an alien, not a ghost, but a very naked lady!

Deepak, one of the men, told Jan Doot News that he and his friend were returning to Seraikela when they spotted the strange woman walking naked. While they were initially scared by the sight and continued on their way, they returned a few minutes later to film the woman.

“It was a lady walking down the road without clothes… The clip circulating online is 30-second long. I have the full video of one and a half minutes,” said Deepak in Hindi.

He also told the reporter that the video was not filmed in Hazaribagh, as has been widely claimed online, but in Seraikela in Kharsawan district.

“We were returning to Seraikela from Chakradharpur after attending a funeral of a friend’s mother. We got scared when we first saw the woman and stopped at a shop near the highway. When a few others reached the spot, we asked if they too saw the woman. She was not a witch. She was a woman, and this was also confirmed by other passers-by,” said Deepak.

As of now, there is no information as to who the woman was and why she was walking in the nude. Local authorities say the matter is under investigation.

A Black Bear Bandit is Responsible for Multiple Vehicle Break-Ins

Police in Thornton, NH, could “bearly” believe their eyes when they found out “who” was responsible for a series of car break-ins in a usually quiet neighborhood. 

Surveillance video helped police get to the bottom of a series of vehicle break-ins in the town of Thornton. But they were quite surprised when home security footage revealed that the bandit was a black bear! The bear was caught red-handed, or should that be red-pawed? Opening the door of a vehicle and then crawling inside.

Police believe the bear was rummaging for food and that the bear is responsible for damaging other vehicles. Police warned residents to remove food from their vehicles to avoid enticing the bear.

The good news is the criminal is unarmed and probably not dangerous. Officials say that making loud noises is usually enough to send a black bear scampering away. 

This particular brown bear was clever enough to open the car doors and search for food. The animal was unharmed in the incidents.

This isn’t the only incident of a bear carjacking that has graced headlines in the past few weeks. Earlier this month, an art teacher from Houston County got the shock of her life after coming face to face with a black bear that had managed to get itself trapped in her car.

It’s never a good idea to leave your car unattended while you are journeying through the woods in the countryside of the United States. For starters, your car might get robbed or damaged by passing vehicles. However, the strongest possibility is that it might be noticed by wild animals.

Mary Jane Yarbrough, a teacher at Warner Robins High School in Houston County, said she was in disbelief when she saw the animal locked inside her parked car. Unfortunately for her, the bear had rummaged so aggressively, the interiors of her car were in shambles.

Last year, a group of friends filmed the moment when a fully-grown bear made his way through the woods and approached their unattended vehicle, which was parked in the middle of a winding road. A few seconds later, the bear got frisky and managed to pull open the front door of the vehicle.

Earlier this month, a California teen, Hailey Morinico, made headlines when she warded off a black bear that was attempting to jump her fence and attack her dogs.

While none of these encounters between humans and bears ended in any harm to the bear or the people involved, other cases were not so lucky. Wildlife experts nationwide say that encounters between bears and humans are on the rise as homes continue to encroach on the bear’s habitats. Some of these encounters end tragically – for the animals. 

In May of this year, a bear was shot and killed by authorities in the backyard of an Oregon homeowner. “We’re not surprised that bears are on the move. We’ve known that for a long time,” said Micah Holmes of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. “The only surprising thing was it was in someone’s backyard.”

The UFO from the Pentagon Report was Recently Seen Over England

The anxiously awaited report to Congress from the Pentagon on what it knows about UFOs has been completed. Unfortunately, it provided no bombshells and few real answers about the leaked footage of the military’s ongoing encounters with unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs, more commonly referred to as UFOs. Are they hiding the truth?

The very same “Tic Tac” UAP’s that were at the heart of that report have been seen over England!

The now infamous UFO, which U.S. Navy pilots said looked like a “white Tic Tac,” spotted is back – but this time, it’s floating over England.

Pictures of the notorious UFO, which was first seen in leaked footage shot by the wing cams of Former U.S. Navy pilot Cmdr. David Fravor, while on duty at the USS Nimitz were this time snapped by Lucy Jane Castle, from Hinckley in southwest Leicestershire, who managed to grab a snap of the unexplained object and posted it on a UFO hunter’s Facebook page.

“It was hovering for a while, and within a blink of an eye, it had gone,” Castle said. “Never seen anything like this before in that shape… Quickly took a picture while it was very still, and within a blink of an eye, it disappeared.”

Dan Watson, a leader of the private UK UFO Sightings group, then posted a pic of two similar objects he claims to have seen over Swindon last year, and a man called Terry Moore noted, “Sightings have Increased massively. From what I’ve heard U.S. military had 6000 sightings last year along. So either we’re being visited, or someone has some new tech.”

In a 2017 interview, Fravor, who was on a routine training mission about 60 to 100 miles off the coast between San Diego and Ensenada, Mexico, described his initial sighting as a “white Tic Tac, about the same size as a Hornet, 40 feet long with no wings… Just hanging close to the water.”

The object didn’t create rotor wash — air turbulence caused by helicopter blades — and mirrored the pilots’ movements as they got closer, then disappeared altogether.

The retired Navy man spoke out after the Pentagon confirmed that a top-secret initiative called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program studied UFOs between 2007 and 2012 with a budget of $22 million.

What is the U.S. government still not telling us about what they know about UFOs and our military’s encounters with them? Please reply using the comments below!

Former Soldier Found Dead After Sending Mom Disturbing Texts

“I hope I am not being abducted.”

Those are the last words of a cryptic text a frantic mother received before her daughter,  Catherine Serou; an Ex-US Marine, was found murdered in Russia! 

Serou vanished while studying abroad in Russia. She sent her family a puzzling — and ominous — text message shortly before she turned up dead. The decorated 34-year-old Marine texted her mother that she was “in a car with a stranger,” adding, “I hope I’m not being abducted” prior to disappearing from Nizhny Novgorod last week.

Serou later turned up dead in a forest near the Bor community of Nizhny Novgorod in Western Russia where she resided, officials announced. 

Serou disappeared on June 15, shortly after getting into a vehicle with an unknown individual in Nizhny Novgorod, roughly 250 miles east of Moscow. The car was headed in the direction of Rekshino village.

“It says: ‘In a car with a stranger. I hope I’m not being abducted.’ And that’s the last thing she wrote,” Beccy Serou, her mother, told NPR. “She’s out there in this forest, I think, relying on her wits — if she hasn’t been killed — to stay alive.”

Beccy Serou said she last saw her daughter in person in 2019.

In the days following Serou’s disappearance, extensive search efforts were launched in the area where she was believed to have been using her cell phone shortly before she was last heard from. 

Alexander Popov, 44, has been arrested in connection to her disappearance, according to Russia’s Investigative Committee. The man has past criminal convictions, authorities said. He has reportedly been cooperating with law enforcement. “Investigative actions are being carried out in order to prove the evidence,” Russia’s Investigative Committee said in a statement to the press. “In the nearest future, a decision on charging the defendant of the probe and on choosing a preventive measure will be made.”

Authorities suspect the 34-year-old California native may have gotten into the stranger’s car, mistaking it for her Uber. A motive in her killing wasn’t immediately released.

Yandex, a Russian-Dutch multinational company, which operates Uber in Russia, didn’t immediately respond to questions surrounding the alleged incident on Monday.

Serou served as a corporal in the US Marines from 2006 until 2011, according to a spokesperson for the military branch. She was a logistics specialist. In 2008, she was deployed to Afghanistan. During her service, she was awarded a National Defense Service Medal, an Afghanistan Campaign Medal, a Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, a Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and other accolades. She was previously headquartered at North Carolina’s Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.

In 2019, Serou enrolled in a graduate law program at Lobachevsky University, her family said. She’d planned on studying the Russian language before returning to law school in America. 

“She loved the university,” Beccy Serou added. “I’m not going to use the past tense, I’m sorry for doing that. She loves the University. It has very small classes, extremely good teachers, and she had many friends outside the University as well.”

“Lobachevsky University extends its sincere condolences to the family and friends of Catherine Elaine Serou on the tragic death of this first-year master’s student of the UNN Faculty of Law,” Rector Elena Zagaynova said in a statement. “This is a personal, painful loss for all of our staff and students. The University is an international fraternity of thousands of students from more than a hundred countries. Their lives, health, successes, and achievements are our great value. The tragedy that has occurred echoes in the hearts of all of us.”

The school, which is located in Nizhny Novgorod, has 30,000 students from approximately 100 countries across the world, according to its website. 

“Since the news of Catherine’s disappearance, we have lived in anxious anticipation, doing our best to help investigators and search parties, and never lost hope. To our great regret, the girl suffered at the hands of a criminal and tragically died,” Zagaynova added.

Pork Burrito Disqualifies Olympic Runner?

Olympic hopeful Shelby Houlihan’s hopes of competing in the games were dashed when she tested positive for testosterone and was barred from the competition.  Houlihan has been suspended from competing for four years.

Yet, she claims that it was her consumption of a pork burrito the day before she was tested that was to blame for the nandrolone found in her system. In an Instagram post, she states that pig organ meat, or offal, can cause a false positive nandrolone result because certain types of pigs produce the substance naturally. 

As crazy as that may sound, her assertion is actually backed by a study funded by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the very agency that banned her from her beloved sport. 

Houlihan claims that while she was racking her brains trying to figure out just how she got a positive drug test from a December 15, 2020 sample she provided, she reconstructed a food log for that week and determined that it must have been the pork burrito she purchased from an authentic Mexican food truck near her home in Beaverton, Oregon, and consumed 10 hours before the drug test.

Now, according to her, that one little burrito has dashed her hopes of competing in the US Olympic Trials and the Tokyo Olympic Games.

“I feel completely devastated, lost, broken, angry, confused, and betrayed by the very sport that I’ve loved and poured myself into just to see how good I was,” Houlihan said in her lengthy Instagram caption. “I want to be very clear. I have never taken any performance-enhancing substances. And that includes that of which I am being accused.”

The burrito excuse could be possible. But, while Houlihan took the test on December 15, 2020, she did not receive the positive drug test results until January 14, 2021. That means she had to remember what she ate a whole month prior with painstaking detail. Can you do that? Can you tell me exactly what you ate at an exact day and time one month ago? Can anyone? 

Dr. Heather Fowler, director of producer and public health for the National Pork Board (NPB), says the literature suggests it is possible that a person can excrete nandrolone if they consume boar meat, which NPB says makes up significantly less than 1% of commercial pork production today, so small it’s not tracked nationally. But, that could have been the type of meat used by the “authentic Mexican food truck,” where Houlihan claims she purchased the competition banning burrito.

Still, as Houlihan’s claims continue to spread on social media, Fowler believes that the NPB must set the record straight and insists that the pork raised by US pig farmers is a valuable source of nutrition and protein for athletes. She says US pork producers face strict food safety and production standards, which ensure the pork consumers eat is safe.

“The US has some of the strictest food production and safety standards in the world, with regulations enforced by both the US Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration. Consumers can feel confident that eating a pork chop from their local grocery store or a side of bacon at their favorite local breakfast spot should not be cause for concern,” Fowler says.As for Houlihan, she insists that she has been done dirty by WADA. “I did everything I could to prove my innocence,” Houlihan said in a Sports Illustrated report. “I passed a polygraph test. I had my hair sampled by one of the world’s foremost toxicologists. WADA agreed that test proved that there was no buildup of this substance in my body, which there would have been if I were taking it regularly. Nothing moved the lab from their initial snap decision.”

Catholic Church Vote to Ban Biden From Communion

A council of US Catholic bishops has voted to keep President Joe Biden from taking Holy Communion because of his views on abortion. 

After three days of online debate, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted by three to one to draft new guidance on the eucharist. Conservative bishops are behind the push to draw up a new teaching document expected to say that Catholics who diverge from the church’s standpoint on abortion should be denied Holy Communion.

Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Fort Wayne-South Bend, who proposed the motion, said: “We need to accept the discipline that those who obstinately persist in grave sin are not to be admitted to holy communion.”

Biden, only the second Catholic behind JFK to be elected president, attends Mass every weekend and carries a rosary that belonged to his late son, said in response to the vote that the matter was private, saying only, “I don’t think that’s going to happen.”

US bishops voted 168-55 to advance plans for a statement on Communion access that will be reviewed at a future meeting, likely in November. The new teaching document, to be drafted by the doctrine committee of US bishops, will not be binding on individual bishops, who have the right to decide whether a parishioner should be denied Communion.

Some members of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops argued that a rebuke of Biden is needed as his administration promotes the expansion of abortion rights in other countries.

The Catholic archbishop of San Francisco, Salvatore Cordileone, said last month that Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) cannot be served Communion over their political support for abortion rights.

Cordileone said in an interview with The Daily Caller that he has privately discussed the issue with Pelosi and that she knows better than to do something “so provocative” as take Communion.

But Pope Francis, who is known for his oftentimes liberal views, is believed to oppose cutting off Communion to Biden. He said in a recent sermon that Communion “is not the reward of saints, but the bread of sinners,” and his allies campaigned against the US bishops’ push.

Catholics believe that bread and wine served during Communion literally becomes the blood and body of Jesus.

Biden is a frequent churchgoer and the first Catholic in office since the Supreme Court legalized abortion nationwide with the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. The Catholic church says that Catholics in public life should uphold principles consistent with its doctrine. But in a survey carried out by the Pew Research Center in March, more than two-thirds of US Catholics said Biden’s views on abortion should not disqualify him from receiving Communion. What do you think?

Dog Thrown From Car Found Days Later Herding Sheep

A dog that was thrown from a car in an accident miraculously survived and turned up days later herding sheep!

The beloved pet, named Tilly, who vanished for two days after being ejected from a vehicle during an accident, has been found apparently doing the job it was bred to do — herding sheep.

Linda Oswald’s family and their dog, Tilly, were driving along Idaho State Highway 41 on Sunday when they crashed into another car, launching the dog through the rear window, The Spokesman-Review reported.

Nobody was seriously hurt in the accident, they said, but when Linda Oswald climbed out of the car, she noticed Tilly running as fast as he could across northern Idaho’s Rathdrum Prairie.

“I tore off after him, but he soon disappeared, and we couldn’t find him,” said Oswald, 68. “We spent the next 10 hours looking for him, and I was worried I’d never see him again. I was so upset — Tilly’s my baby.”

The unharmed but stunned dog then ran off, prompting an immediate search with at least six complete strangers who witnessed the crash and pulled over along the highway to help, Oswald said.

“People just kept going out,” Oswald said, noting that the search lasted about 10 hours on the day of the crash before the family went home. “We were sore and exhausted.”

“Dozens of people stopped everything they were doing and went out and looked for him,” she said. “In the middle of the night, people were out calling for him. I was extremely grateful.”

But after nearly two days of searching, there was still no sign of Tilly.

“At night, I couldn’t feel him with my feet at the bottom of the bed, and that really made me sad,” said Oswald. “I couldn’t stop crying.”

Found Through Facebook

Oswald said the family then wrote a Facebook post that included a picture of the 2-year-old border collie and red heeler mix and more than 3,000 people shared the post. That’s when Tyler, Travis, and Zane Potter recognized the dog in the photo as the same dog they saw on their family farm south of Rathdrum – two days after the collision! 

The brothers initially wondered why their Australian shepherd looked a little different, but then they realized they were looking at a dog that did not belong to them, Mike Oswald said they later told him.

Both the Potters and Oswald think Tilly was drawn to the farm and their sheep.

“I think that dog was trying to herd,” Travis Potter said.

Oswald said if it weren’t for the farm owners seeing the post, he would still be out there. Linda Oswald said she was not surprised that the pup she’d adopted from a neighbor when Tilly was six weeks old ended up on a sheepherding adventure.

Since he was very young, Tilly nipped at the heels of other animals, children, and adults and tried to round them up, Oswald said.

Border collies take naturally to herding because they were originally bred for that purpose, according to the Border Collie Society of America.

Tilly’s herding instinct can be a little embarrassing sometimes, said Linda Oswald, who noted that she often has to explain to people that Tilly isn’t trying to hurt them when he nips at their heels.

“But he’s truly the smartest dog I’ve ever known,” she added.

Tilly is eager to please and responds quickly to commands at home, she said. He will run to the bedroom to fetch her slippers if asked.

Although it isn’t known where Tilly was before he was spotted on the sheep farm, Oswald said she believes he was making his way home after the car accident and became distracted.

“He saw all those sheep and just wanted to go to work,” she said.

Cult Mummifies and Worships the Body of Its Deceased Leader

In May, a man called the local police to report he had found a dead body in his home. While somewhat alarming, it is not such an unusual call for police. The Saguache County Sheriff’s Office just figured this was either going to be a routine call for someone who had passed away at home or perhaps something more nefarious but not out of the realm of “normal” police work.

What they did not expect to find was a mummified corpse, wrapped in Christmas lights, with glitter around empty eye sockets. The body was ensconced in a sleeping bag, lying on a bed, surrounded by “some kind of shrine,” according to a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office.

Although both the coroner’s office and law enforcement have not been able to identify the body through fingerprints, it allegedly belongs to Lia “Amy” Carlson, the leader of the Love Has Won cult, who often goes by the name “Mother God.” 

When a man walked into a Colorado police station last week to report a dead body in his home, the officers dispatched to the scene were likely not expecting to discover a mummified corpse, wrapped in Christmas lights, with glitter around empty eye sockets. The body was ensconced in a sleeping bag, lying on a bed, surrounded by “some kind of shrine,” according to the Saguache County Sheriff’s Office.

Although both the coroner’s office and law enforcement have not been able to identify the body through fingerprints, it allegedly belongs to Lia “Amy” Carlson, the leader of the Love Has Won cult, who often goes by the name “Mother God.”

The man who called the police about Carlson’s body, Miguel Lamboy, claimed to be a member of Love Has Won and said he found the body after returning to his home, where several other members of the group were staying while he was out of town. Seven adults were found and arrested in conjunction with Carlson’s death; however, there were also two children — aged two and 13 — in the home at the time officers arrived. They appear to be in good health, but all seven adults will face child abuse charges.

According to investigators, the cult members — other than Lamboy, who had the peace of mind to call the police – don’t see this as a crime. They say that this is their leader’s “ascension.” 

Now, a larger public investigation seeks to identify who Amy Carlson was, what she was teaching this group, and why her body was mummified in a bizarre shrine by members of her own cult. Carlson claimed on the group’s now-defunct website that she was on her “534th reincarnation in my quest to recover my beloved Planet” and that her past lives included Jesus Christ and Marilyn Monroe. 

The early history of the cult is not entirely documented, but according to Amy Carlson’s children, who have since spoken out, the cult started about 15 years ago. That’s when they said Carlson abandoned her family to teach “spiritual intuitive ascension sessions.”

Although the cult appeared to be a local organization, with a few members living with Carlson, one former follower — Andrew Profaci — said that Love Has Won reached thousands of people, often recruiting people through social media and YouTube videos. A Vice News documentary from March 2021 detailed how Carlson would promise her followers “a superior alternative reality” if they provided the organization with financial compensation.

An investigation into Carlson’s death is ongoing, with all seven people likely to be charged, as officers begin to piece together other damages that Love Has Won caused. But for now, members continue not to mourn but to celebrate.

“Her essence left the body of Amy Carlson at 12:22,” one follower posted on Facebook. “She is indeed happy now.”

Woman Says She Gave Birth to Ten Babies… But Did She Really?

In what would be a new world record, a South African woman has reportedly given birth to 10 babies.

Gosiame Thamara Sithole, 37, is already a mom of six-year-old twins. She and her husband initially thought she was going to have eight kids, becoming a rare “Octomom” like Californian Nadya Suleman, according to news reports.

Sithole’s husband says they were astonished by decuplets after scans only showed eight in the womb – making her a “Decumom.” 

“It’s seven boys and three girls. I am happy. I am emotional. I can’t talk much,” her husband Teboho Tsotetsi told Pretoria News after the birth.

A family member, who did not want to be identified, told the press that Ms. Sithole had had ten babies – five via natural birth and five via cesarean section.

According to the BBC, the Guinness World Records is investigating Ms. Sithole’s case. If it can be confirmed to be true, it would be a record-breaker.

A woman who had eight babies in the US in 2009 currently holds the official Guinness World Record for the most children delivered at a single birth to survive.

Last month, 25-year-old Halima Cissé from Mali gave birth to nine babies, who are reportedly doing well at a clinic in Morocco.

Sithole, from Ekurhuleni, said that her pregnancy was natural and that she had not received fertility treatment, which has been linked to other multiple-baby births.

If confirmed, Sithole’s 10-kid delivery would make it the first known birth of decuplets.

“Guinness World Records is aware of the news that Gosiame Thamara Sithole has given birth to decuplets, and we send our congratulations and best wishes to the family,” a spokesperson for the records listing told the New York Post.

“At the current time, we are yet to verify this as a record as the wellbeing of both the mother and babies is of top priority.

“Our records team, alongside a specialist consultant, are looking into this,” the spokesperson said.

Sithole had shown off her huge pregnant belly last month during a photoshoot with her husband when they still thought they were expecting octuplets. Even that had been a surprise, as the initial scans only showing only six babies, she previously told Pretoria News.

“When the doctor told me, I took time to believe it,” she said of the seemingly inaccurate news that she was expecting octuplets.

“Even when I saw the scans, I didn’t believe it. But, as time went by, I realized it was indeed true. I battled to sleep at night, though,” she said.

“God made a miracle, and my children stayed in the womb without any complications,” she said of her “hard” pregnancy.

As news of the decuplets spread, donations for the couple’s burgeoning family started pouring in so much so that father, Tsotetsi, has requested people stop donating money to his wife and their 10 new babies, whom he says he still hasn’t seen.

“I appreciate the financial support that we have been getting from members of the public, but I also would like to appeal to the public to stop making money deposits into our accounts until members of the community have seen the babies,” Tsotetsi told local newspaper Pretoria News, according to the Daily Mail.

Not only has Tsotetsi not yet seen his children, but he hasn’t seen his wife since she left home on June 7. While she has purportedly given birth to her hefty brood, the Mail reported that local authorities have been unable to trace Sithole to any public or private hospitals -casting some doubt on her incredible story.

Numerous family relatives have come forward to maintain that Sithole did indeed recently give birth to 10 children. However, as of the writing of this story, no doctors have been able to verify the fact, nor have any photos surfaced of the newborns. 

Pretoria News purportedly has all the details of the delivery but is holding publication due to “cultural and religious reasons.”

Tsotetsi, meanwhile, said he is excited to eventually meet his children, whenever that may be. As of June 11, he had accepted over $70,000 in public donations for them in Cape Town.

“I can’t wait to have them in my arms,” he previously told local media.

Fisherman Gets Swallowed By A Whale

Michael Packard, a Cape Cod fisherman, is recovering after miraculously emerging without serious injuries after spending nearly a minute in the maw of a humpback whale who mistook him for a snack.

“I was lobster diving, and a humpback whale tried to eat me,” Packard wrote on his Facebook page.

This tale, reminiscent of the biblical story of Jonah and the Whale, began innocently enough when the 56-year-old sea captain went diving to check on his lobster traps near Provincetown, where he’s from. He was about to check a trap — when a passing whale just scooped him up and gulped him down!

“He was in a whale’s mouth for 30 to 40 seconds, and then he was spit out,” his mother, local painter Anne Packard, told the local press.

Michael Packard wrote on Facebook that the whale swam to the surface and spewed him out.

“I realized I’m in a whale’s mouth, and he’s trying to swallow me,” a shaken-sounding Michael Packard told a WBZ reporter outside of the hospital a few hours after the incident, according to the TV station. “I thought to myself, ‘Hey, this is it. I’m going to die.'”

But happily, his physical recovery seems to be going swimmingly. His mother said he was recovering in a local hospital and had been pretty doped up to tend to his myriad bumps and bruises — but that he’s doing pretty well, all things considered. Medical personnel had suspected he’d broken at least one of his legs, but it appears he escaped even that.

“He doesn’t have any broken bones,” she said. “He’s terribly fortunate.”

She said she’d just talked to him on the phone, and they didn’t get too far into what it’s like in a whale’s mouth. But she did say, “He said he knew it was the end — he absolutely accepted it.” 

Packard may very well be the luckiest man alive. Like something from the popular “Final Destination” movies, this isn’t the first time he escaped certain death. According to the NY Post, Packard was also nearly killed in 2001, when a plane he was on reportedly crashed in Costa Rica, killing three other people on board. The plane went down on Nov. 29, 2001, while flying from the capital of San José to the fishing village of Puerto Jimenez, the Cape Cod Times reported at the time.

Packard, 57, “suffered severe facial injuries and multiple broken long bones in his arms and legs,” the outlet reported. He and four other passengers reportedly spent two nights in the jungle before rescuers found them.

A doctor who treated them said at the time that, “They would not have survived another night at that [crash] site.”

As to how he survived this most recent brush with the Grim Reaper, marine biology experts have said that whales don’t actually eat people. They say that this kind of behavior is essentially unheard of and likely is just a freak incident — a fluke, if you will — in which an open-mouthed whale and a diving man happened to be in the same place at the same time. 

They also say that whales and other sea mammals such as dolphins have been known to help people in trouble in the oceans. It could very well be that the whale was indeed knowingly saving Packard’s life by bringing him to the surface before spitting him out!

Veteran 9/11 First Responder Fatally Stabbed on Lunch Break

A veteran emergency medical services worker was killed while taking her lunch break on Thursday in what police are calling an ‘unprovoked attack.’

Alison Russo-Elling, an EMS lieutenant for the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) was fatally stabbed by a man in Queens.

Russo-Elling was attacked around 2.20pm on Thursday, about half a block away from Station 49 in Astoria.

Russo was reportedly grabbing food on her lunch break when a man ran up to her on the sidewalk and stabbed her multiple times.

She was rushed to Mount Sinai Queens Hospital, where she died from her injuries.

Her attacker was identified by police as Peter Zisopoulos.

Zisopoulos, 34, had no prior arrests. He was hospitalized but never charged after making violent threats against Asians in 2018, a police source told the New York Daily News.

Russo-Elling was a 24-year FDNY veteran. She started as a EMT in 1998, and was quickly promoted to paramedic in 2002. She was promoted to lieutenant in 2016.

The FDNY also confirmed that Russo-Elling was one of the first responders to help with rescue and recovery efforts after the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Centers in 2001.

Russo-Elling is the 1,158th member of the FDNY to be killed in the line of duty.

‘I worked with EMTs for years,’ Adams added. ‘I’ve seen what they do up close. Their sacrifice is immeasurable.’

New York Governor Kathy Hochul ordered all flags to fly at half-mast on Friday in honor of Russo-Elling.

‘Our hearts are with her family as we honor her life and remember her as a hero,’ the governor stated. ‘I know all New Yorkers are grateful for her service over more than two decades with FDNY and as a World Trade Center first responder.’

Russo-Elling lived on Long Island and is survived by her daughter and her parents.

Man is Missing After Trying to Jet Ski from Florida to the Bahamas

A Florida man has been declared missing after allegedly attempting to jet ski from south Florida to the Bahamas.

Charles Walker, 52, was last seen on Pompano Beach around 5 p.m. on Sept. 23, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Walker’s family said he was planning on jet skiing from the beach to Bimini in the Bahamas, a distance of around 115 miles.

While in the water, Walker’s last known location was 15 nautical miles off the coast of West Palm Beach, per the Coast Guard.

He is 5 feet and 9 inches tall, weighs 190 pounds and has gray hair and green eyes, according to a description provided by the family.

Walker is now one of the many people who have gone missing off the Florida coast in the last week.

As Hurricane Ian hit the state, 23 Cuban migrants were reported missing as their ship capsized from the strong winds and waves. Four migrants managed to swim to safety.

Alligator and Snakes Spotted in Florida’s Floodwaters – WATCH VIDEOS

Hurricane Ian has caused widespread damage and flooding in Florida, leaving much of the state drowning in several feet of water as it continues its trek up the East Coast. With floodwaters still raging, officials have warned residents to stay indoors and avoid going into it at all costs — and dangerous wildlife is a big reason why. 

“Flood water is dangerous,” the Collier County government tweeted on Thursday afternoon. “We’ve received reports of sewage, alligators and snakes in flood water in our community. Please stay away.” 

While those reports have not been confirmed by CBS News, there has been video footage circulating that demonstrates these risks. A local NBC affiliate reporter posted a video on Thursday showing an alligator swimming through floodwaters in Lake County, saying it looked like it was “about 9, 10 feet.” The local fire chief had earlier warned about animals in the floodwaters, she said, adding that the creatures normally wouldn’t like to “come out of the swamps.” 

One viral video shows a mystery creature swimming through a flooded neighborhood in Fort Myers on Wednesday morning. Many suspect the animal – which appears to have fins – was a small shark. Though CBS has not confirmed the authenticity of the video, video licensing agency Storyful said it confirmed the video’s authenticity and spoke to local marine and wildlife specialists, who were more skeptical that the creature was a shark. 

One expert from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said staff couldn’t identify the animal. Marine scientist Rick Bartleson was also unsure, Storyful said, but said that based on the shape of the animal’s dorsal fin, he doubts it was a shark or sawfish. 

But one thing is known for sure – it’s just one more reason to avoid the floodwaters. 

Florida Fish and Wildlife officials said Tuesday that “major storms cause wildlife to become more active.” 

“You may be more likely to see alligators, snakes and bears, so remember to stay alert and give them space,” the department said in a Facebook post. It advised anyone who comes across wild animals to report it to the department. 

Much of the state saw significant flooding, and some areas expected record-breaking water levels, even inland. 

“The amount of water that’s been rising, and will likely continue to rise today even as the storm is passing, is basically a 500-year flood event,” Governor Ron DeSantis said Thursday morning. “…Some of the flooding you’re gonna see in areas hundreds of miles from where this made landfall are gonna set records.” 

Floodwaters can increase the risk of drowning, and Florida’s Division of Emergency Management has warned that the water can be contaminated and be filled with dangerous debris. Underground or fallen power lines, which have been reported throughout the state in Ian’s wake, can electrically charge the water — a potentially fatal hazard.

Emergency officials also urged people to not drive through flooded roadways, noting that “nearly half of all people killed in floods are those who try driving through flooded areas.” Don’t drive around barricades, and if your vehicle stalls, they recommend leaving it immediately. 

For areas hardest-hit by storm damage and flooding, the division’s director Kevin Guthrie has repeatedly warned that it could be difficult for first responders to get to the scene of an emergency, depending on the level of destruction. 

“Please keep in mind that first responders may not be able to immediately enter impacted areas to assist you due to the safety hazards,” he said Wednesday evening.

Shania Twain Reveals Dinner with Oprah Winfrey Went Sour After Religion Discussion

Shania Twain has sung high praise after meeting Harry Styles, claiming he “smells so good.” After teaming up with the “huggable” “Watermelon Sugar” hitmaker at Coachella earlier this year, the “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” singer heaped praise on his scene and personality.

“He smells so good, he’s so huggable. Yes, he is. He’s just a really genuine, nice person. And I think that’s really, I mean, obviously, he’s very talented. But people love him. He’s likeable. And I think he earned that likability…It was a beautiful moment. It really was. I enjoyed it a lot. It was very genuine,” she said when appearing on the “Table Manners with Jessie Lennie Ware” podcast.

While the country pop legend had high praise for Harry’s odour, the same can’t be said for another former co-star of sorts after a horse answered the call of nature in the middle of a performance. She recalled, “One time this horse had the biggest poo on stage. I’m talking about a giant steamy, huge pile of poop.”

“So I’m thinking this is a very formal room. You know, velvet, plush velvet seating and very formal theatre, right? The horse s**** on stage. Yeah. So All I could say was, ‘S*** happens.’ That’s great. I just thought okay, now can we be done with that? Other than the odor? Let’s just move on with the song.”

Meanwhile, Shania also reflected on a “memorable” dinner she enjoyed with chat show legend Oprah Winfrey and admitted things got awkward when the subject of religion came up.

She said, “Well, I did have, I think one of my most memorable dinners was with Oprah Winfrey. I mean, she’s such a smart lady. And, you know, it was just great to just sit and have real talks, you know, and, but as soon as we started talking about religion, it all went sour.”

“I’m not religious, in the sense that I’m dedicated to a religion. I’m very much more of a spiritual person. I’m much more of an inner. I’m a seeker. I would say I’m a seeker.”

“People always say don’t debate politics or religion and it just wasn’t debatable. There was no room for debate. And I like to debate Canadians like to debate about it, you know, debate everything. So I’m like, ‘Oh, okay. Sounds great, change subject.’ “

Queen Margrethe II of Denmark Strips 4 Grandchildren of Royal Titles

The British royal family isn’t the only monarchy undergoing a shakeup. Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II announced on Wednesday that four of her grandchildren’s royal titles will change.  

In a statement via the Danish Royal Director of Communications, the children of Prince Joachim — who is the monarch’s youngest son — Prince Nikolai, 23, Prince Felix, 20, Prince Henrik, 13, and Princess Athena, 10, and their descendants will go by Count/Countess of Monpezat.

Their prince and princess titles will be ‘discontinued’ at the start of 2023.  

“In April 2008, Her Majesty The Queen bestowed upon her sons, their spouses and their descendants the titles of count and countess of Monpezat. In May 2016, it was also announced that His Royal Highness Prince Christian, as the only one of The Queen’s grandchildren, is expected to receive an annuity from the state as an adult,” the statement read.  

“As a natural extension of this, Her Majesty has decided that, as of 1 January 2023, His Royal Highness Prince Joachim’s descendants can only use their titles as counts and countess of Monpezat, as the titles of prince and princess that they have held up until now will be discontinued. Prince Joachim’s descendants will thus have to be addressed as excellencies in the future,” the statement continued. 

The statement noted that the decision by the 82-year-old monarch was made to simply fall in line with similar adjustments made by other royal houses.  

Queen Margrethe II announces changes to 4 grandchildren's titles

“The Queen’s decision is in line with similar adjustments that other royal houses have made in various ways in recent years,” it read. “With her decision, Her Majesty The Queen wishes to create the framework for the four grandchildren to be able to shape their own lives to a much greater extent without being limited by the special considerations and duties that a formal affiliation with the Royal House of Denmark as an institution involves. All four grandchildren maintain their places in the order of succession.” 

Prince Joachim shares his two oldest children with his ex-wife, Alexandria, Countess of Frederiksborg. His children, Henrik and Athena, are with his current wife, Princess Marie, whom he married in 2008. 

Following the announcement, Alexandria spoke out about the change, noting that her children feel “ostracized” by the queen’s decision. 

In a statement to B.T., her translated message said, “We are all confused by the decision. We are saddened and in shock,” adding, “This comes like a bolt from the blue. The children feel ostracized. They cannot understand why their identity is being taken away from them.” 

Queen Margrethe II’s other grandchildren include Prince Christian, 16, Princess Isabella, 15, and 11-year-old twins, Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine, whose father, Prince Frederick of Denmark, is heir to the throne.

Passenger Jets Collided on Runway at One of the World’s Busiest Airports

A collision between two passengers jets on a runway of London’s Heathrow airport led to emergency services scrambling.

A spokesperson for Heathrow airport told Insider: “Yesterday evening our teams responded to a minor collision between two aircraft on the airfield. There were no injuries as a result of the incident and all passengers and crew were safely disembarked.” 

The spokesperson said the incident involved planes from Korean Air and Icelandair and that an investigation is underway.

Korean Air and Icelandair did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment made outside of normal working hours.

A picture tweeted by Dan Sabbagh, a journalist for the Guardian who was a passenger on the Korean Air flight, showed multiple emergency vehicles parked on the runway.

According to The Guardian, the wing of the Korean Air plane destined for Seoul clipped the wing of the parked Icelandair plane while taxiing before its intended take-off at around 8 p.m. local time. The Daily Star first reported the news. 

The Heathrow spokesperson said there was no significant impact on arrivals or departures on Wednesday and the airport continued to operate normally.

Heathrow has handled more than 38 million passengers up to August this year, according to its website. Pre-pandemic passenger levels topped 81 million, making it one of the world’s busiest airports. 

Travelers endured long queues and mass delays at the airport this summer. At one point, it was forced to cap daily passenger numbers at 100,000 to ease the disruption. 

Fake Doctor Appeared on TV and Performed Over 350 Illegal Autopsies

Shawn Lynn Parcells, 42, of Topeka, was sentenced to five years and nine months after pleading guilty to wire fraud connected to performing illegal autopsies. The U.S. Department of Justice said Parcell used his business National Autopsy Services LLC to “obtain fees from more than 350 clients for a total amount of $1,166,000,” the DOJ said Monday. “In many cases, the defendant failed to provide an authentic completed report.”

In May, Parcells pleaded guilty to the count of wire fraud. As part of a plea deal, nine other fraud charges were dropped. In that case, he used false credentials to convince a client he was qualified to conduct an autopsy, the DOJ said. Parcells was paid $5,000 for an autopsy report he emailed to a client, but no pathologist was involved in preparing the report, which is illegal.

In summer 2014, Parcells gained notoriety when he assisted in an autopsy in the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, Missouri. He claimed to be a pathology expert, appeared on TV regularly, and said he testified in court dozens of times. In fact, Parcells has no formal education in pathology, which was uncovered in an investigation that aired in November that year. He claimed to be an adjunct professor at Washburn University, which the school denied.

Parcells said he learned how to do autopsies from “on-the-job training,” observing and assisting pathologists at morgues. Officials interviewed said that Parcells had misrepresented himself as a doctor. “If they want to think I’m a doctor, that’s their issue,” Parcells told reporters. “People assume stuff all the time. And they may never ask. It’s bad that they’re assuming and that they never asked. If they want to think I’m a physician, then more power to them.”

In another case in 2019, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt also charged Parcells with conducting illegal autopsies. The AG alleged that Parcells contracted with Wabaunsee County and didn’t complete them, including having a licensed pathologist present. Last month, a Kansas county district judge in August banned Parcells permanently from doing business in the state and ordered him to pay more than $250,000 in restitution to 82 clients. “He is required to comply with all Kansas statutes that regulate any profession, and is prohibited from using any titles or initials that include professions in the healing arts or any other profession for which he is not educated, certified or qualified,” said a release from the Kansas Attorney General’s office.

Willie Nelson Had to Quit Smoking Weed After It Nearly Killed Him

Even the best parties can’t last forever.

To be fair to the man, he is 89 years of age. The country musician made the revelation in a sit down with KSAT TV a few years back, admitting that smoking so much over the years had ‘almost killed’ him.

He told the Texan outlet: “Singing out there for an hour is a good workout. Your lungs are the biggest muscle you got, so when you’re out there working, you’re working out.

“I have abused my lungs quite a bit in the past, so breathing is a little more difficult these days, and I have to be careful.

“I mistreated myself since I was this big. I started smoking cedar bark, went from that to cigarettes to whatever, and that almost killed me.

“I don’t smoke anymore. I take better care of myself now than I did then.”

The musical icon went on to address previous rumours that he was ‘near death’, stating: “I don’t give a f**k, excuse me. I’m here, I’m glad to be here, I’m lucky to be here.”

In fact, Willie and Snoop did a tour all around Amsterdam getting high and having a good time, even hitting up KFC when they got the munchies.

We know this thanks to the legendary rapper himself, who was asked about the top smokers during a 2018 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel.

“Seth Rogen was here last week, and we were talking about Mount Rushmore of pot smokers, and of course, you are on,” said the host.

“And I think that Seth is on Mt. Rushmore. Who would you put on that Mt. Rushmore?”

Snoop was more than happy to oblige, saying: “I would put Bob Marley. I would put Cheech and Chong – they were the first faces on the mountain, they’re the ones who showed us what a mountain was.”

But when it comes to numero uno, the 50-year-old said: “Willie P. Nelson is definitely on there.

“And by the way, Willie Nelson is the only person who has ever out-smoked Snoop Dogg. I had to hit the ‘time out’ button.”

When asked if he’d ever had to hit that button before, he replied: “Never. Never.”

And Willie later corroborated the story, saying in an interview with Daily Beast: “That was over in Amsterdam!

“I called Snoop and I said, ‘Hey buddy, you gotta come over here. This is where it’s at!’

“So he came over and we hit every bar, every smoke place in Amsterdam. We had a helluva time.”

We bet it was.

Savannah Guthrie Caught On Hot Mic While Hoda Kotb’s Gone?

Today host Savannah Guthrie suffered an awkward moment live on-air. She dealt with technical difficulties while her co-host Hoda Kotb has been away. Savannah didn’t know her mic was still on while Al Roker was giving the forecast. Al filmed his remote segment from Denver, Colorado.

He was there to report the weather from Empower Field at Mile High. He showed one of the weather maps from around the country, including Florida’s West coast map in lieu of Hurricane Ian. Al was cut-off mid-sentence by Savannah, who didn’t realize that her hot mic was still on. Read on to learn what happened.

Savannah Guthrie caught on her hot mic?

Today Show viewers were met with an awkward silence and background noise. His co-host was caught on the mic hot saying, “What do I do?” The camera panned over to Savannah Guthrie who stood in the Plaza in New York City. She wore a black leather jacket with a matching all-black outfit.

Savannah said: “Alright, and now let’s get a check of the weather in your neck of the woods.” She looks over to a crew member and adds: “I’ve always wanted to do that…” She was abruptly cut-off mid-sentence. This awkward blunder was confusing to the fans who were watching at home.

They were wondering what happened during the segment. It appears that there was a technical glitch that prevented Savannah Guthrie from hearing Al give his forecast. She wanted to jump in and say something. However, as you can tell, there was a delay due to a glitch.

The Today Show hasn’t been without its share of blunders. Some fans have taken notice and called out the show for it. Al Roker was caught giving his co-hosts the stink-eye during one broadcast. He also took part in another awkward live moment with Savannah.

Where did Hoda Kotb go?

Savannah Guthrie wasn’t caught saying anything bad on her mic. However, it had fans wondering about her reported feud with Hoda Kotb. She’s been away from the desk for the past few days. Hoda was absent on both Monday and Tuesday’s broadcast of the Today Show.

Savannah Guthrie co-hosted the show with her colleagues Craig Melvin and Tom Llamas. This comes after Hoda struggled to stay awake behind the scenes. She was caught in mid-yawn during the commercial break. The fan-favorite admitted that her two kids kept her up the night before.

Savannah and Hoda took part in a friendly interview for Sirius XM’s Today Show Radio. The two moms discussed their nighttime routines and how they prepare for those early mornings. It’s not easy for them. The lack of sleep could be the real reason why they’re reportedly grumpy at work.

School Shooting in California Injures At Least 6

All six victims had gunshot wounds and were transported to local hospitals, the Oakland Police Department said at a press conference. They were all adults believed to be affiliated with the school, Oakland Police Department Assistant Chief Darren Allison said, though officials did not say if any were students aged 18 or older.

Allison said the shooting happened at about 12:45 p.m. at the Rudsdale Newcomer High School portion of the King Estates campus, which houses four schools that also include Sojourner Truth Independent Study and BayTech Charter School. Investigators are working to determine how the shooting progressed, Allison said, noting that some victims were located inside the building.

“Today’s gun violence at Sojourner Truth school shocks the soul — our schools are sanctuaries for our children,” Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf said in a tweet. “The unbridled access to firearms in our country is inexcusable.”

Two victims had life-threatening injuries and one person had been released from the hospital as of Wednesday afternoon, Allison said at a press conference. Two others were pending release from the hospital and the last victim had non-life threatening injuries.

LAW SUIT: Highland Park July 4 parade shooting victims, families sue gun manufacturer

Allison said officials were looking for at least one shooter, though he said more suspects could be involved. Nobody was in custody yet on Wednesday. The school was cleared and the situation is not active, officials said.

John Sasaki, a spokesperson for Oakland Unified School District, said in a statement that district officials “do not have any information beyond what Oakland Police are reporting.” He said the Sojourner Truth Independent Study headquarters has no students.

Outside a nearby church converted into a makeshift student-parent reunification site, Oakland city councilmembers Loren Taylor and Treva Reid met with frustrated teachers, parents and community leaders fed up with the rash of shootings plaguing the city, including eight homicides over a recent eight-day span.

“This is way beyond the point of crisis,” said Taylor, who is running for mayor and lives nearby.

“We have to ensure we bring all hands on deck to fight these guns and bullets flying. It’s going to require early intervention, and eyes and ears on the ground,” Taylor said. “It has to be our top priority to keep our residents safe.”

Reid, whose district is where the school shooting occurred, said she raced to the school as police were searching to see if the shooters were still on site.

“You’re standing out here where principals were in shock, they don’t have the answers. They’re processing having to use their hands to save victims’ lives that were before them,” she said. “Now we have to work on building that trust back for students, their parents and faculty to return to that campus. When that will happen? I can’t tell you.”

She said city and school officials are already strategizing to address those schools’ needs. Overall, Reid said the past couple of weeks of deadly violence has been emotionally draining for the city.

“Processing all of the homicides and being at the scenes still seeing loved ones’ bodies on the ground, it’s traumatizing,” Reid said. “We certainly feel the weight of our community. They feel like they are being preyed upon and held hostage. They can’t leave out of their homes, can’t go to the park, can’t go to the gas station, can’t go to the grocery store.

“And now parents feel like they can’t take their kids to school and have peace, safety, and security. That crippling weight of this violence is impacting all of us, especially those on this campus.”
