Have you ever seen a tweet containing an interesting article, but you do not have the time to read the article? Have you wished there was a way you can save it? Well folks, Twitter has heard your pleas.
Since last year, Twitter has been working on a feature that will allow users to privately "bookmark" tweets for later viewing. Twitter knows how fast news circulates on Twitter. Twitter wanted to make the experience easier, while also providing privacy. Before, the only way people could save interesting tweets is by retweeting them or 'favoriting' them.
This has gotten some of the most high-profile people into deep water. Melania Trump once favorited a tweet that implied that she hated her husband, US President Donald Trump.
The new feature is being made LIVE as of today. As someone who is on social media all the time, sharing articles and promoting my web writing business, I have been looking for the feature. As of right now, the feature is not LIVE on my end. Perhaps the feature will be active as of tomorrow.
What to look for:
Once the feature has gone LIVE, you will see an additional button on the bottom of evert tweet box (a share icon). Once you click on it, it will give you three options:
When you're ready to view your bookmarked tweets, you will go to your profile icon and look for menu options. The bookmark list can be found next to Moments and Twitter Lists.
The bookmark feature will be LIVE on Twitter for iOS, Android, Twitter Lite, and mobile.twitter.com.
Jeff Franklin, the brains behind 'Full House' and 'Fuller House,' has been fired over allegations of misconduct. In addition to the firing, Warner Bros declined to renew his production deal. Warner Bros released the following statement regarding Franklin's termination:
"We are not renewing Jeff Franklin's production deal and he will no longer be working on Fuller House."
He is being accused of verbal assault against staff, and making sexually charged comments about his personal life. While he has not been accused specifically of sexual misconduct, he has been known to bring various women on the set and give them small roles on the show.
So, will season four of 'Fuller House' actually happen?
Yes. Netflix released a statement assuring viewers that Fuller House will go on as scheduled:
"Fuller House will return for a fourth season, as planned. We hope to go into production in the next few months."
Fans of the original show are worried about this latest development. As you all remember, after Jeff Franklin left the show in the 90s, ratings had dropped, which led to its cancellation in 1995.
Will we see history repeat itself? Who knows. I think this time around, the show will be fine. John Stamos has been doing a lot of work on the show behind-the-scenes, so maybe we will see him have more of a say in what happens in future seasons.
I, for one, am shocked by Jeff Franklin's misconduct allegations. I am glad that it won't ruin production of the show. I like 'Fuller House' a lot and can't wait to see what happens in season 4!
Recently, Facebook users began noticing a job posts page on their account. The feature can be seen in 40 countries, including here in the USA. Facebook is giving businesses the option to post job openings on their page, and they can even run ads promoting the fact that they are hiring.
Those who are actively looking for jobs can easily discover these job openings and they can use their Facebook profile info as their resume. Job seekers will be able to Facebook message these prospective employers in order to schedule interviews.
According to Facebook's VP of local Alex Himel, about one in four Facebook users have successfully found a job using this Facebook feature. Himel also said that while 40% of small businesses have had issues with filling jobs, he hopes that the Facebook feature will improve these numbers for small businesses.
People are worried that the new feature may take money and business away from LinkedIn. Facebook stated that they want to develop similar features as LinkedIn, but for lower-skilled jobs, such as food and retail.
How can I find employment opportunities in my area?
Simple. Look to the left of your computer screen under "Explore." If you scroll down the list, you will see "Jobs." Click on it and you can begin your search for employment.
I have done test searches to see what was available. You can expect to see a lot of customer service openings, retail opportunities, food service, daycare job openings, contractor openings, and more.
When you see a job that interests you, click on apply. A window will pop up, listing your previous employment, education, and more. You can choose what you want to share and what you don't want to share. I did a test run with a work-from-home data entry job. After I sent the application, I received a Facebook message, confirming that the business received my application and that they will be in touch. While I already have a work-from-home job, I have a baby on the way. If the company is legit, every little bit of money I can earn helps provide for my son.
While this is a simpler way of finding a lower-skilled job, it isn't a guarantee that you will be hired. There are a lot of fake job postings out there. Proceed with caution, and keep your options open. Look for employment on job search sites such as LinkedIn and Monster. Fill out applications in person, and always touch base with the company a week after you submit your application.
If you do get an interview with a prospective employer, make sure you bring a cover letter. Every time I have brought a cover letter with me, I've been hired.
Recently, Arie stated that he knows viewers will hate him after they see his decision on next week's finale. Rumors began spreading about him choosing one woman, and then breaking off that engagement and choosing the runner-up two months later.
The rumors began when Caroline made that startling comment to Arie at the 'Women Tell All.' She said:
"I know what you did, and I don't know how you could do that. I just really don't understand it, but I really hope you found what you're looking for."
According to the King of spoilers, Reality Steve, Arie proposes to Becca in the finale. They stay engaged for two months, then Arie realizes he's madly in love with Lauren and coldly dumps Becca for Lauren.
Reality Steve believes that Becca K will end up being chosen for 'The Bachelorette,' due to Arie's betrayal.
I will let all that tea sink in. Tune in Monday for the 3-hour Bachelor finale, and tune in on Tuesday for 'After The Final Rose.'
Don't miss 'After the Final Rose,' because the new Bachelorette will be chosen.
My Two Cents
If Reality Steve's predictions ring true, Arie is a total jerk for hurting Becca like that. I don't care about excuses, he should have been 100% sure about his decision when he gave out that final rose. I hope Becca is chosen for the next 'Bachelorette.' She deserves a man who will love her whole-heartedly, and not run back to an ex after he proposes.
If you saw Raw last night, you witnessed John Cena in rare form. He recapped his loss at the Elimination Chamber, and he said that for a split second he thought his dreams of being at WrestleMania were through.
Then he got the WWE Universe's hopes up by issuing a challenge to The Undertaker. A second later, he said that a match between himself and The Undertaker would not be possible. He said that he will be appearing on Smackdown Live on Tuesday to find another route to WrestleMania.
The Undertaker has not wrestled since last year's epic WrestleMania match between himself and Roman Reigns. When he lost the match, we watched Taker bid farewell to the squared circle. Recently, the WWE Universe started buzzing about the possibility of The Undertaker having another go at wrestling. He had been seen at many events, and he made an appearance at the 25th anniversary of WWE Raw. During that appearance, he made a rather puzzling speech, making people wonder if there is a possibility of him coming back.
According to his Wikipedia profile, he is "no longer retired." Could The Undertaker be planning a return? We don't know. All I know is that I'd love to see the Deadman walk again.
As for John Cena, I honestly don't see him getting a match via the Smackdown route. The only wrestlers on Smackdown that could be potential opponents are Baron Corbin, Randy Orton, and Jinder Mahal.
Last night, RAW ended with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon asking Kurt Angle to come to the ring and apologize for what he said at the contract signing at the Elimination Chamber event. Unfortunately, for Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, they didn't get Kurt Angle. Ronda Rousey's amazing entrance music came on and she power walked toward the ring (she gets major brownie points from this girl for using "Bad Reputation" as her entrance music. That's my second favorite song of all-time). Kurt Angle followed her to the ring and he told her that he lied about what he said (if you remember from the Elimination Chamber, Kurt Angle revealed that Triple H and Stephanie made choice comments about Rousey. Rousey ended up putting Triple H through a table, and she was punished with a slap from Stephanie). Triple H punched Kurt with force, making him fall to the ground. Just as Triple H and Stephanie were about to leave, Rousey told Stephanie that she needs to apologize or she would pull Stephanie's arm out of its socket (knowing Rousey's history of fighting, she probably could do it better than anyone). McMahon did apologize, but the sincerity of the apology is questionable (if you've been a follower of WWF/WWE, you know what I mean. Stephanie is perhaps the best heel to ever grace the squared circle. Remember when she lied about being pregnant so Triple H wouldn't leave her? She's always been sneaky, always has an ulterior motive).
I think Rousey is going to be HUGE in the WWE. I love her bad a** attitude, and I know she will be one hell of a women's champion one day. I seriously can't wait til Monday to find out what happens next with Rowdy Ronda Rousey!!
As you all can tell, I love reality TV. Along with being a huge Bachelor fan, I also love The Voice. When I heard that Kelly Clarkson was going to be a judge, I was skeptical. In recent years, she has become a little too hyper for my liking. After watching the season premiere of The Voice, I am eating my words.
Kelly Clarkson brings a lot of life into the show. She was absolutely hilarious, especially when she squared off with Blake Shelton. Those two fought tooth and nail over country singers. Kelly serenaded Kaleb Lee, one of the contestants, in order to coax him to choose her over Blake. Sadly, that didn't work out in her favor.
Blake and Kelly fought over who was more country, and they even name-dropped their country music friends.
The last contestant, Justin Kilgore, got both Kelly and Blake's attention (and Alicia Keys attention as well). Alicia immediately blocked (new feature on The Voice) Blake from wooing Justin. Adam got up and did snow angels in the blocked space on the floor. After Adam finished his snow angels, Justin mentioned that he is a fan of Reba McIntire's. Of course, Kelly Clarkson lit up and talked about Reba being her mother-in-law. Of course, Justin picked Kelly as his coach.
Team standings as of Season 14 premiere, part one:
I cannot wait to see what the rest of the season holds. If the chemistry between all four judges stays this strong, it's going to be the best season ever!
Kelly, keep that energy up! You are killin it!
Hey Bachelor Nation! Last night, we watched Arie and the 3 remaining women jetset off to Peru. Emotions are at an all-time high, and you won't believe what went down. Let's recap what happened:
We meet the Bachelor in Ica Peru, where the desert meets the ocean. Definitely the perfect setting for love...and drama.
First Date: Kendall
Kendall discusses the anxiety she has before she meets Arie in the desert. She is feeling pressure to get to a place in her mind where she is ready for marriage. Arie tells Kendall that they will be riding a dune buggy through the desert. After a nearfall off a desert cliff, the couple use boards to surf the desert. They sit down and have a conversation.
That night, they go to a tiki hut and try local cuisine. They have a conversation about her readiness to get married. She discusses her previous relationships, and asks Arie about what he sees with her. He says he wants to get to know her on all levels, and that he thinks they are good for each other. She tells him that she's falling in love with him, he says he's falling for her too.
She is offered the fantasy suite card and she accepts. She is feeling more comfortable with Arie.
Second date: Lauren B.
Before the date, Lauren reveals that she is in love with Arie. They meet at an airport, and gear up for a day of seeing Nazca Lines. While Arie is snuggling up to Lauren B, he feels that she has a wall up. He says he has no problem reassuring her, but he wants her to open up more so she can enjoy the experience.
After seeing the Nazca Lines, she tells Arie that she does have some discomfort about the process. Arie assures her that he is crazy about her. She tells him that the stronger her feelings are for him, the harder it gets for her. She wants to be the only girl that he sees.
That night, they sit down for a romantic dinner. She admits to Arie that she is freaking out due to having trust issues. Arie tells her he is confident in her and he does love her.
Arie pulls out the fantasy suite card and she accepts.
Third date: Becca K.
Becca meets Arie by the water and he tells her that they will be going sailing.
They settle down on the boat and talk. She asks him if he has doubts and he says no. They talk about what would happen if it was the two of them at the end of this.
That night, they walk the desert to a romantic setting where they will be having dinner. Arie talks about his fears of being rejected. Becca admits that she was skeptical about the experience at first, but when she met him, she felt more at ease. She tells him that she loves him, and that she isn't afraid of her feelings. He tells her that he is in love with her.
Arie offers her the fantasy suite card and she accepts. They walk toward a tent and start their night. #Glamping
After the romantic dates, an ex of Becca's arrives to Peru and the 'ish goes down! Ross introduces himself to Arie. Ross sits down with Arie and tells him that he wants Becca back, he wants to marry her. Arie asks Ross that if she doesn't choose Ross that he should respect his relationship with Becca. Ross says "I don't know."
Ross leaves to find Becca and Arie is livid. Becca is shocked when she opens the door and sees him. Ross tells Becca he wants to marry her. She tells him she doesn't want to go back to her relationship with Ross. Ross wishes her the best and walks off.
Becca composes herself and goes to see Arie. They talk about Ross's arrival. Arie worries that he may have to deal with Ross in the future.
Later, Arie sits down with Chris Harrison and they discuss the events over the past week.
At the Rose Ceremony, Arie steals Kendall for a moment. Becca and Lauren are confused. Arie sits down with Kendall and says he doesn't know if they can get to that point where marriage is on the table. They hug and say goodbye. Arie returns to the Rose Ceremony, and offers roses to Becca and Lauren.
Arie tells Becca and Lauren that next week, they will be meeting Arie's family.
Next week, the finale will be live and emotions are at an all-time high. Arie reveals he loves both women, and what happens next week will shock even the most seasoned Bachelor fan.
Tune in next week for the 3 hour season finale of The Bachelor. Get the tea ready now!
After news broke of Bill Cosby's daughter Ensa Cosby passing away suddenly from Kidney Disease, people began searching Chronic Kidney Disease and Renal Failure. Because this illness impacts so many lives, I wanted to help raise awareness about Chronic Kidney Disease.
Our kidneys have a very important function in our lives: They filter our blood. They remove waste and extra fluid by flushing them from our bodies in the form of urine.
What is Chronic Kidney Disease?
Chronic Kidney Disease basically means that someone has been suffering from Kidney Disease for quite sometime, and their kidneys are not working as they should.
When a kidney is diseased, waste builds up in the bloodstream, making the sufferer sick.
Our kidneys are made up of about a million small filters called nephrons. When nephrons become damaged, the healthy nephrons pick up the slack. After a while, those nephrons shut down. When a certain amount of time has passed, the leftover nephrons are unable to filter your blood to keep you healthy.
What causes Chronic Kidney Disease?
Symptoms of Chronic Kidney Disease
Treatment for Chronic Kidney Disease
If your kidney function decreases to a certain point, your doctor will diagnose you with renal failure. Renal failure can impact your bones, brain, and heart. If left untreated, it can become life-threatening.
When you are diagnosed with renal failure, your doctor will give you a couple of options: dialysis or a kidney transplant. Dialysis will help filter the waste from your kidneys. While it won't cure you, it will help you feel better.
When it comes to kidney transplants, those are recommended if you are otherwise healthy. The issue with transplants is that you have to wait for a perfect match for your blood and tissue type. You will also be required to take medication for the rest of your life, the medication ensures that your body does not reject the new kidney.
Again, if you suspect that you may have kidney disease, contact your doctor immediately.
Actress Heather Locklear was arrested at her home in California on Monday. She is being charged with alleged domestic violence.
Police responded to a domestic disturbance late Sunday night in Thousand Oaks. The victim of the alleged domestic violence was a boyfriend who had a visible physical injury. The victim declined treatment at a local medical facility.
When Locklear was approached by deputies, she was reportedly uncooperative and at times combative.
Along with her domestic violence charge, she is also charged with 3 misdemeanor counts of battery against a police officer.
She was released on $20,000 bail and is expected to be in court on March 13.
See her mugshot below:
