Never underestimate the power of one person to inspire us.

When Betty White passed away on Dec. 31, less than three weeks shy of her 100th birthday, her love of animals inspired animal lovers across the country to dig into their pockets, purses and backpacks. They have donated historic sums of money to organizations that rescue, protect and advocate for animals, while spreading the message of pet adoption.

Betty White has had a very long career in show business and has been showered with accolades from her peers and the public. Winner of eight Emmy Awards (Primetime, Daytime and Regional), three Screen Actors Guild Awards, four TV Land Awards, she was recognized in 1995 with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. If she had never publicly expressed her desire to protect animals and become a champion of pet adoption, she would still have been loved by her fans.

Being a vocal and proud advocate for pets has forever earned him special status.

People also read…

It was supposedly a single Facebook post that said “everyone should choose a local shelter or animal shelter in your area and donate just $5 in Betty White’s name.” The end result, an outpouring of money to these groups, is not the least bit surprising. For many of us, our pets are beloved members of the family. They never start arguing at Thanksgiving dinner, they never ask to borrow money, and almost without fail they’re thrilled to see us come home. We love our furry friends.

The world often seems divided into two groups: those who love animals and those who don’t need or abuse them. Even in the Bible, the latter are called “wicked” and “cruel”. (Genesis 24:19). There will always be people yelling at requests for donations to animal welfare groups when so many “human needs” in the community go unmet. Arguing with this line of thought is, of course, futile. Luckily, enough of us think you can see the need to be kind and helpful to animals, as well as to ease people’s suffering.

The Betty White Challenge showed how many of us really want to help animals.

“We’ve been absolutely blown away by the support for the Betty White Challenge,” said Angela Speed, vice president of communications for the Wisconsin Humane Society, which has a shelter and adoption center in Mount Pleasant.

“More than 1,600 donors gave $60,000 to the Wisconsin Humane Society in honor of Betty White’s birthday,” Speed ​​said. “There are so many wonderful animal welfare organizations that have received donations in honor of Betty’s incredible philanthropy for animals, and we couldn’t be more grateful to be among them.

“Many of the 1,600 donors were first-time donors to WHS, and others signed up to become automatic monthly donors, meaning this is not a one-time impact. for a day – this will help the animals for years to come. It’s possible this will also become an annual grassroots campaign, which would be amazing.

“Donations to nonprofits are often staggered in January, and a boost like this can be incredibly helpful in the dead of winter. A big thank you to everyone who contributed or just shared the challenge on social media – it will have a huge impact on homeless and injured animals in the communities we serve.

In Kenosha, community members rose to the challenge, with approximately $14,000 donated to the Safe Harbor Humane Society animal shelter.

“We’ve been slowly taking in donations since his passing, but the big donation push happened (Jan. 17), with a total of over $14,000 in donations,” Safe Harbor officials said. “We had so many people showing up for her, it was so heartwarming!”

Safe Harbor reported that White’s fans even sent “some 100th anniversary cards, with incredibly touching messages. Talk about a legacy left behind, right? »

White — a big supporter of the Los Angeles Zoo, the American Humane Society, Guide Dogs for the Blind, the Endangered Wolf Center and other animal welfare groups — would no doubt be thrilled with the outpouring of support.

You can still donate to Safe Harbor, which is undergoing a “much-needed overhaul of our dog adoption area,” through its website, safeharborhumanesociety.org, and the group’s Facebook page. And coming Feb. 6 is Safe Harbor’s annual Spay-ghetti Dinner fundraiser, from noon to 6 p.m. at Moose Lodge, 3003 30th Ave.

To donate to the Wisconsin Humane Society, go online to: bit.ly/WisconsinAnimalDonate or call 414-264-6257.

Monday, January 17 would have been Betty White’s 100th birthday. To honor the late actress, people were encouraged to participate in the Betty White Challenge and donate to a local humane society or animal shelter.



Director of the Humane Society of Central Illinois, Jane Kahman, explains how the society works, while hanging out with Alexander, a three-month-old kitten.

Kourtney took to her Instagram Story Tuesday and Wednesday to share photos and videos from the couple’s romantic getaway.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum first shared a video of the ice cream and caramel they tasted at Oliver’s restaurant in Montecito.

After sharing photos of a Christmas tree outside and the beach at night, Kourtney posted a video of the beautiful beach during the day.

The location is special for Kourtney as Travis asked her for his hand in the same place.

Kourtney then shared a video of herself working out at the gym before showing off the pasta she enjoyed for dinner on Wednesday night.

Next to the photo, the mother of three wrote, “Treat yourself, don’t be fooled. “

The final photo in the Instagram stories captured their exterior of their hotel, which was festively decorated with wreaths and white lights.

BABY ON THE WAY?

Even before getting engaged, fans wondered if Kourtney was pregnant with the drummer’s child.

After the KUWTK star shared the photo of the candy she enjoyed on Tuesday night, Instagram users wondered if she was fulfilling her pregnancy cravings.

She showed off the delicious food after showing a kitchen cupboard filled with her huge collection of junk food in her $ 8.5 million home.

In a video, the TV personality showed off a series of Bussin Snacks branded crisps, cookies and candies.

Kourtney filmed whimsical flavors of Cheetos, Doritos, Lays, Sour Patch Kids, Sweet Tarts, Lollipops, Snickers, Oreos and Smartfood Popcorn as Christmas music played in the background.

NO MORE BABY RUMORS

After Travis and Kourtney went official in February 2021, fans noticed plenty of clues that could point to a potential pregnancy.

In July, Kourtney shared photos of a particular snack consisting of pickles, vegan butter, tangerines and sourdough bread.

It wasn’t the first time that she had made some weird meal choices and had previously indulged in a water-based martini.

The founder of Poosh held the jar filled with small white flowers to flavor her soft drink.

Also over the summer, Kourtney was pictured eating sushi without fish, as she opted for a veggie roll with avocado instead.

“I haven’t eaten meat or fish for 7 months and I feel good,” she wrote of the choice of dinner at the time.

Kourtney shares her children Mason, 12, Penelope, nine, and Reign, seven with ex Scott Disick.

Meanwhile, Travis has two children Alabama, 16, and Landon, 18, whom he shares with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler.

Released last Christmas, Netflix’s Bridgerton was a massive social phenomenon, watched across North America by scores of people and discussed at length on social media and in the press. With a second season on the way, what other shows like Bridgerton are worth checking out?

The first season followed various families in Regency-era London in the 1800s. The well-to-do Bridgerton family seek to marry their daughters to maintain their social status. This leads to a lot of conflicts and scandals. The series is narrated by Lady Whistledown, a mysterious socialite who comments on today’s gossip in her widely read newsletter, entertaining her readers with the implicit threat that they might be her next target.

Read on for a list of shows like Bridgerton that you might enjoy while you wait for Netflix to release season two.


Dickinson

Dickinson Apple TV Plus

Bridgerton talks about how to behave in a polite society, and he gives a modern twist to period drama. In this way, Apple TV Plus’s Dickinson is a staple among shows like Bridgerton. Emily Dickinson’s fictional tale of adolescence is a terrific spectacle, with Hailee Steinfeld shining in the title role. While Bridgerton is set in England and Dickinson is a quintessentially American story, they both take place in the 1800s, with contemporary soundtracks and an emphasis on how young women are meant to behave. The biggest crossing point is Eloise Bridgerton, who like Emily Dickinson is keen to break free from the limitations placed on her as a young woman. Emily is a poet, but her father wishes to see her married rather than wasting his time and threatening his reputation with her artistic endeavors.

Outlander shows off as Bridgerton

While there is no time travel in Bridgerton, it does bear some similarities to Starz fan-favorite historical romance, Outlander. When a WWII nurse finds herself transported to 1700s Scotland, she out of necessity marries a handsome Scottish Highlander. Their marriage of convenience soon gave way to genuine affection and, in particular, to a lascivious attraction. If Bridgerton’s steamy romance has left you wanting more, Outlander may be for you. The series is full of battles and swashbuckling, unlike Bridgerton. This means that you don’t have to worry about it being the same again.

Great

The Great is a dark comedy about Catherine the Great’s beginnings as she acclimates to life in Russia with her new husband. Catherine has a hard time getting used to bizarre social conventions and the strict expectations placed on her. If you like Bridgerton’s historic pageantry – and the many attempts to sidestep social norms – then The Great is probably in your wheelhouse. Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult’s flawless performances make this viewing essential in its own right. But it’s especially worth a visit for anyone looking for shows like Bridgerton.

Prostitutes Show Like Bridgerton

A bit grittier and riskier than Bridgerton, Harlots nonetheless feels the same genre with Netflix period drama. It deals with class divisions, social scandal and, yes, steamy sexual encounters. A woman who runs a brothel in 18th-century London decides to move to an upper-class part of the city in an effort to provide a better life for the sex workers she employs. This decision, however, puts her in conflict with a rival brothel lady already installed there. Of course, the two women have even bigger issues in the form of religious evangelists and ruthless cops. Where Bridgerton explores how young women can elevate themselves in society through marriage, Harlots examines the ways in which women can take control of their lives through sex work.


Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl shows off as Bridgerton

One of the most obvious benchmarks for Bridgerton’s Lady Whistledown is the eponymous Gossip Girl from the iconic teen soap opera from the late 2000s. In Gossip Girl, a mysterious person posts gossip about her classmates at a school Manhattan preparatory. Students go about their social life never knowing when they might find themselves in Gossip Girl’s sights. Like Bridgerton, the show is narrated by mysterious gossip. And like Bridgerton, that narration is provided by an actress other than the agitator ultimately revealed. The series reboot in 2021 is less invested in protecting the identity of the titular Gossip Girl, but it also has similarities to Bridgerton if you want even more.

Mr. Jacques

Based on the diaries of real landowner and industrialist Anne Lister, written in code, Gentleman Jack tells the story from his own perspective. Remarkably, Lister was a lesbian in England in the 1800s. This put her at odds with many moral crusaders at the time. It also meant that she could lead a free and fulfilling life without hiding who she really was. Like Bridgerton, Gentleman Jack takes a critical look at social norms and expectations, especially those imposed on women. It’s a celebration of living your own truth despite overwhelming pressures and an endless gossip mill.


Belgravia

Belgravia

From Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey (himself not a bad contender among shows like Bridgerton) comes Belgravia. The Epix mini-series follows high-society families in London’s upscale Belgravia district in 1841. It tells the story of the Trenchards, who, despite having high social status, hide a potentially ruinous secret. In 1815 in Brussels, on the eve of Napoleon’s defeat at the Battle of Waterloo, their daughter fell in love with a lord and sole heir to a fortune and a family estate. Years later, the child born of this illicit union and raised in an adoptive family could tip the balance of power and privilege. But not without a major scandal.

Vanity Fair shows like Bridgerton

Bridgerton and Vanity Fair share more than just a lead actor in the form of Claudia Jessie. Based on the classic novel of the same name by William Makepeace Thackeray, Amazon’s Vanity Fair tells the story of Becky Sharp, an unemployed teacher who sets out to win over her friend’s wealthy brother. Just as Bridgerton offers ceremonies and rituals designed to marry young women and give them a chance to climb the social ladder, Vanity Fair explores the absurd efforts to be made for a better life in the early 1800s, just before the most restrictive and oppressive. Victorian era.

When it comes to testing your skills against other opponents, taking things “to the next level” is a common proclamation for many competitors.

But a new cooking competition really takes things to the next level, whether it’s the competitors whether you like it or not.

Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay stings home cooks, professional chefs, social media cooks and more in his new show “Next Level Chef”, where they compete on a three-story set, each floor containing a different type of cuisine.

The upper level is a chef’s dream kitchen, with the latest high-end equipment and the best selection of ingredients. The intermediate level is like a real commercial kitchen where everything necessary to create a restaurant-quality meal is available to chefs.

The basement, well, that’s another story.

This is where the equipment may or may not work very well, or where the ingredients may not be as plentiful and where no chef wants to end up for a challenge.

But for the winner, it won’t just be bragging rights that they are great chefs on many levels, as the top prize is $ 250,000.

And three local chefs are among the 15 competitors vying for money and the title of “Next Level Chef”.

The show debuts at 8 p.m. Jan. 2 on Fox, but before the series premiere, meet the locals competing on “Next Level Chef”.

Roice Bethel

Age: 29

City: Crown

The amateur chef will likely have one of the loudest and most enthusiastic sections of cheers, as during the day he makes a living as an AP science teacher at a college in San Bernardino, and his students are all set. to watch it on TV.

“They’re super excited, they’re all going to watch. They know the exact date it will air and I think they’re really excited to see it, ”said Bethel, who was born in Brazil but has lived in Corona since the age of 6. And he credits his city for expanding his love for food.

“I’ve always been exposed to many different types of food because it’s a very diverse community. As I grew up, I was able to try many different cuisines from all over the world, ”he said.

Although he never attended cooking school or worked as a chef, Bethel always loved to cook and during the pandemic he began to cook seriously at home and eventually posted his skills on TikTok with cooking videos, which got him noticed by show producers.

“I was totally nervous. I know I can cook any dish, but my competition were people who cook professionally, ”he said. “So I knew I had to study, adapt and shake things up on the go, but it was also exciting because I’m always ready to compete.”

One of the hardest things about the show was having to get creative on the fly, he said.

“Basically you introduce yourself and they tell you what you’re going to cook. You can’t take notes with you, it’s just what you have in mind and your skills, ”Bethel said.

Luckily for Bethel, his cooking style suited the show perfectly, having had to adapt quickly to cook all kinds of dishes.

“The one thing that interests me the most is trying new things all the time, so I never really cook the same thing over and over again,” he said.

Although not a professional chef, Bethel was proud to hold on with his creativity and adaptability.

“Everything I had in front of me, I am proud of what I was able to invent,” he said.

Stéphanie “Pyet” DeSpain

Age: 31

City: Santa Monica

Originally from Kansas City, DeSpain now lives in Santa Monica and after attending Le’Cole Culinaire in Kansas City, she started a personal chef business called Pyet’s Plate in 2016. And during COVID-19, she started posting videos cooking online, which caught the attention of producers.

“My specialty is indigenous fusion foods, so I focus on my culture. I am multicultural, Mexican American and Native American. So I’m very passionate about integrating my two cultures into the food I create, ”she said.

For DeSpain, one of the hardest things about competing was having what she called “impostor syndrome”.

“I thought I shouldn’t be there. Everyone who was on the show is a phenomenal, super talented chef and it was just about trying to figure out what your placement was there, ”she said. “Most of the time, I was there before competing, I had this impostor syndrome. So it was mostly about getting that out of my own head and focusing on the task at hand was the hardest part, ”she said.

Trying to be creative on the fly was also quite difficult, she said, especially if you found yourself in a rudimentary basement.

“That’s one thing I would have to say about the basement, is that you have to be super creative because you are not in a setting where everything is accessible to you. It really forces you to use your creative side because if you don’t have it you’re screwed.

And when it comes to Ramsay in real life, what you see on TV is what you get in real life, she said.

“Yes, he’s very intimidating in real life,” she said.

“He’s the real deal, he’s everything everyone thinks he is and more. He’s kind and caring, but he’s also serious.

Tricia wang

Age: 28

City: Fullerton

This OC native swapped the world of finance for cooking when she decided to quit her career as an investment manager at Morgan Stanley two years ago to move to Japan and study French and Japanese cuisine. at the Cordon Bleu.

“I wasn’t sure if I would be happy to do this,” she said of her career in finance. “I really believe that if we are working 70 percent of our lives, you should be doing something that you are really passionate about,” she said.

And that turned out to be a wise move for the chef, who worked at places like Wolfgang Steakhouse before the COVID-19 hit and became the fairly popular star on Twitch, with nearly 70,000 followers watching. his cooking demonstrations.

“A few of my subscribers sent me the link where Chef Ramsay was recruiting for the show and I ended up applying and walked in,” she said.

But it wasn’t easy to go from Chief Twitch to competitive TV.

“I’m a Twitch boss, so when you’re broadcasting you want to be as slow as possible so people can engage with you. The longer the streams, the more subscribers, the more engagement I get, ”she said. “Being told I had to cook things quickly rather than as slowly as possible was a big change. “

Aside from testing his skills and possibly earning a ton of money, Wang also had a particularly poignant reason for wanting to be on the show.

“I talk about it a lot on my Twitch but I have anxiety and ADHD and so I really struggle in high pressure situations. So I really wanted to show that even though you are struggling with these mental disabilities, you can still thrive, ”she said.

“It was extremely scary, it’s a little terrifying. Chef Ramsay is one of my heroes and the reason I wanted to be a chef was largely inspired by great chefs like him. So it was incredible to be in his presence, ”she said.

“I’m just happy I got to work with Chef Ramsay and I didn’t just tip over and die,” she added with a chuckle.

“A few of my subscribers sent me the link where Chef Ramsay was recruiting for the show and I ended up applying and walked in,” she said.

But it wasn’t easy to go from Chief Twitch to competitive TV.

“I’m a Twitch boss, so when you’re broadcasting you want to be as slow as possible so people can engage with you. The longer the streams, the more subscribers, the more engagement I get, ”she said. “Being told I had to cook things quickly rather than as slowly as possible was a big change. “

Aside from testing his skills and possibly earning a ton of money, Wang also had a particularly poignant reason for wanting to be on the show.

“I talk about it a lot on my Twitch but I have anxiety and ADHD and so I really struggle in high pressure situations. So I really wanted to show that even though you are struggling with these mental disabilities, you can still thrive, ”she said.

“It was extremely scary, it’s a little terrifying. Chef Ramsay is one of my heroes and the reason I wanted to be a chef was largely inspired by great chefs like him. So it was incredible to be in his presence, ”she said.

“I’m just happy I got to work with Chef Ramsay and I didn’t just tip over and die,” she added with a chuckle.

Not only is this gritty HBO series rated as one of the best crime shows of all time, it’s also widely regarded as one of the best shows on TV, period. This is why it is practically criminal that in five seasons he has never been nominated for an Emmy for Best Drama and why the cast of the Powerhouse, including the late Michael Kenneth Williams, Idris Elba and Dominic West, have been. almost ignored by the awards committees. It started as a stellar drama about the Baltimore War on Drugs and one unit’s creative and ambitious wiretap strategy to take out the top of the pyramid, but it has expanded its reach each season to cover more. systemic ills that contribute to overall urban degradation. (It doesn’t cover classism and racism in hospitals, but many of the best doctor’s shows do.)

Opinion



It’s been over 48 hours since the gong stopped ringing at the Canada Life Center and the Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs were sent to their locker rooms to reflect on what they had done. But that didn’t stop the noise from continuing.

A quick social media scan reveals a tire fire raging right now. I will try to quickly summarize the respective positions for you. The Jets are the dirtiest team to ever play, a bunch of skate assassins who should be kicked out of the NHL. And the Maple Leafs are the biggest collection of whiners ever, determined to chase heads with violence.

Pierre-Luc Dubois (left) takes on Leafs forward Auston Matthews.

There is no gray area, no room for nuance. It is a clear case of good versus evil, of sinners versus saints. Who plays the respective roles is entirely based on the team you are rooting for.

Pierre-Luc Dubois is either a hero or a villain for riding Auston Matthews as if he was Secretariat during a strange MMA-style melee in the third period. Neal Pionk is either an angel or a devil for a knee-to-knee hit on Rasmus Sandin who sidelined the Toronto defender. Jason Spezza deserves either a medal or being sent to the gallows for a subsequent hit on Pionk that put him in a concussion protocol. Wayne Simmonds is either a caped crusader or a coward for chasing Josh Morrissey. Logan Stanley is a prince or an outcast for his fiery defense of his teammates and his spirited celebration.

You get the picture. It is not pretty.

Fred Greenslade / La Presse Canadienne</p><p>Wayne Simmonds of Toronto was determined to punish the Jets.</p>

Fred Greenslade / The Canadian Press

Wayne Simmonds of Toronto was determined to punish the Jets.

No matter where your bias lies, here’s an indisputable truth emerging from Sunday’s fiery affair: As much as it represents a well-deserved black eye for hockey – Sandin and Pionk are indefinitely injured, Pionk got a two suspension. games, Spezza was given a six-game suspension and Simmonds was given the maximum fine – the reaction from the respective fans could be even more embarrassing than anything that happened on the ice.

Normally I hate giving oxygen to Keyboard Warriors and Anonymous Trolls. It is usually best to allow them to scream into the void in their small echo chamber. But the hyperbole has become so voluminous and so vitriolic that it is impossible to ignore it.

“We will gladly lose the second leg 8-0 as long as three of their starters are off on stretchers. Lacrimal ligaments. “I hope (Kyle) Clifford hits Dubois in the face, I don’t care if Clifford is suspended for the rest of the season,” said another.

This is just the tip of the Twitter iceberg. One of the dozens of people who responded to the official Winnipeg Jets message about Pionk suffering from a concussion simply replied, “Good. He deserved it ”. “Stay out of the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat,” another heart-loving Leafs fan wrote. “You reap what you sow,” said a third. There were the expected secular slurs about Winnipeg even as the sump quickly began to overflow.

To be clear, some Jets fans don’t have their hands clean either. Many gave as much as they had, as the war of words escalated by the minute. My mute button was the subject of a workout on Monday and Tuesday as the threads I was sort of included in exploded to ridiculous levels. If only people could get excited about the issues that really matter in life.

I found it interesting to hear Travis Hamonic’s agent, the pride of Saint-Malo, Man., Explain last week why he thinks so many hockey players have Canadian cities on their no-trade list. Kevin Epp was mainly pointing the finger at the media – he was talking specifically about the Vancouver market – and suggesting that they revel in the negative. But he also repeated a narrative that has been whispered by others in recent years that the rise of social media and the toxic tone it often takes scares many would-be free agents.

We saw a smoldering example of that here last spring, when Mark Scheifele became Public Enemy No.1 in the eyes of Montreal fans after a dirty blow sent Canadiens forward Jake Evans on a stretcher. Scheifele, who was suspended for four games, spoke tearfully after the fact about the online harassment of many of his family in Ontario. The off-ice display ended up being uglier than what happened in the game itself.

And now comes this last dark chapter. It’s a shame, as the game itself between Winnipeg and Toronto was very entertaining, with tons of talent on display and plenty of offense and excitement. It made some fans salivate at the idea of ​​a future playoff meeting between the two organizations. Frankly, I fear that such an event is enough to trigger a civil war.

I would suggest that all of this shows why the type of shenanigans that unfolded on Sunday are never really going to be eliminated from the sport. It’s too ingrained in so-called “hockey culture”, especially in this country where sport can bring out the best, but also the worst, in people.

This goes for the players and the coaches themselves, who haven’t really organized a classroom clinic. Yep, I’m looking at you Sheldon Keefe, who basically admitted after the game that he sent his toughest players on the boards with the idea of ​​sending a message and fixing what he saw as wrongs. Memo to the NHL: Haven’t we learned a lesson from the whole Todd Bertuzzi / Steve Moore scandal in Vancouver, that premeditated violence is never the answer and would result in stiff penalties.

Considering Keefe’s frankness, where is his suspension and / or his fine? Leafs forward William Nylander also poured a jerry can of gasoline into Hell on Tuesday, suggesting the payback would be a you-know-what when the teams meet again in Toronto on March 31. … We’ll see what happens then. ”

Just curious, but when is the hearing for referees Brad Meier and Reid Anderson? They let the madness take over when they inexplicably looked at each other and swallowed their whistles over the Pionk-Sandin and Pionk-Spezza incidents. Perhaps the Gambling Concussion Watcher should also be called to the mat for not having Pionk shot for observation after clearly taking a knee to the head.

Yes, there is a lot of criticism to be made. And the fans who continue to fuel the fire are right at the top of the list. As long as they keep banging the gong, I’ll keep beating the drum.
