REPORT: Kids aren’t growing up: Shocking new poll says parents are killing kids’ life skills

This is what I found on USATODAY.COM: While we’re clucking over the college admissions bribery scandal, those of us with children too young to worry about higher education gaze up from our smartphones and remind our tweens and teens that schoolwork’s due Friday and to pack their uniform for practice. What’s wrong with that? Only that most of us still will be doing it when our children are in college. Bribing SAT proctors, paying off college officials and lying about kids’ athletic credentials is illegal, but it’s also part of a pattern of today’s parents taking control so their children succeed and avoid...

REPORT: Lori Loughlin joked of spending ‘all this money’ on Olivia Jade’s education in old video

This is what I found on USATODAY.COM: Lori Loughlin’s past comments keep coming back to haunt her. The actress and mother of two is one of the famous faces charged in the college admissions bribery scandal. In a YouTube video published to daughter Olivia Jade’s YouTube on Dec. 22, 2017 the influencer tries to teach her mom some slang terms. When the phrase “England is my city” is brought up, Loughlin, 54, admits she is unaware of its origins. The line was uttered by Nick Crompton in Jake Paul’s song “It’s Everyday Bro.” If you would’ve said ‘England is my city,’ ” Loughlin...

It’s no wonder that some study estimates that up to 20 percent of passengers on commercial flights will develop a respiratory infection within a week of flying. You could arm yourself with hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, or you could just fly a cleaner airline. Skytrax’s World Airline Awards recently announced the cleanest airlines of 2018 after passengers rated various airlines’...

REPORT: ‘Game of Thrones’ fashion line includes $2,700 ‘Winterfell Leather Jacket’

This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM: Winter is still coming — at least to a John Varvatos store near you. In anticipation of the final season of “Game of Thrones” — which premieres April 14 — luxury menswear designer Varvatos has launched a new 11-piece capsule collection of pieces inspired by the swan song of HBO’s hit show. About half of the line is comprised of rugged, armor-like pieces for the wannabe Jon Snow. Think hand-painted leather jackets, which top out at almost $2,700, or distressed henleys and trousers in cool shades of gray.     View this post on...

REPORT: Who wants to be a half-billionaire? Powerball jackpot soars to $550 million

This is what I found on (CNN) — Fantasies of buying 423 castles or 2,143 Ferraris could become reality this week now that the Powerball jackpot has topped half a billion dollars. Wednesday’s estimated jackpot, $550 million, is the eighth largest in Powerball history. (If you’re impatient and want all your millions at once, the lump-sum cash value option is $335 million.) Your chances of winning? 1 in 292,201,338. We know those odds won’t deter you. But just in case you want a reality check, you’re far more likely to have quintuplets naturally, get murdered at the Grand Canyon,...
