The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Just because talent signs their life away doesn’t make exploitation correct. The mentality that we were nobodies and that these streamers and networks have given us platforms and that we can capitalize on them is also moronic.” Bethenny Frankel


Quote II

"People feel the institution in this country [they] can't trust anymore. And both sides, you see that feeling, which is why Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is getting real traction. Who would have thought of that a year ago?" Forbes Media Chairman Steve Forbes


Quote III

“They are monitoring this guy for doing what millions of other hobbyists do—selling part of their personal collection. That’s not a crime, but apparently ATF doesn’t like people turning over their guns at a high rate, Eric Olson, a lawyer for Gun Owners of America (GOA)

Texas woman Tierra Allen, social media's "Sassy Trucker," trapped in Dubai after arrest for "shouting"

London — A Houston woman is trapped in the United Arab Emirates after being briefly detained for "shouting" in public during an argument with a Dubai car rental company, a London-based organization trying to help her get out of the country has told CBS News.

Social media influencer Tierra Young Allen, 29, known to fans online as the Sassy Trucker, was arrested in May following a confrontation with a male employee of a car rental company in Dubai who was trying to intimidate her into paying thousands of dollars she didn't owe, according to Radha Stirling, CEO and founder of Detained in Dubai, the international nonprofit organization that's working to free her.

Stirling said Allen was arrested on May 16 and released on bail later that day, but her passport is being held by authorities, preventing her from leaving the UAE

I read the following and did 2 things: 1) Laugh 2) And thought, this is why we can't have nice things.

Four men have been arrested after a football match had to be abandoned when a hearse was driven onto the pitch.

The friendly game between non-league teams Gateshead and Dunston was called off on Friday after both a hearse and a Subaru drove onto the pitch and started doing doughnuts.

The incident happened at Dunston’s UTS Stadium in Tyne and Wear at around 8.20pm.

Leaflets were also thrown out of the cars and across the pitch. The game was abandoned at half time.

The plan was brilliant. The execution of said plan? Genius Award Winner.

DVR) — Robin Niceta, a former Arapahoe County social worker on trial for a false report of child abuse, is facing new charges after allegedly faking a brain tumor to avoid a criminal trial.

During Niceta’s trial in March, she filed documents claiming she had been diagnosed with a glioblastoma in her brain, making her incompetent to proceed with the trial.

Prosecutors want evidence of fake brain tumor used against Robin Niceta
The indictment says that Chief Deputy District Attorney Daniel Cohen looked further into the claims and called the doctor on the file named “Dr. C Marquez” at “New Mexico Oncology.” He spoke with someone claiming to be the doctor, but CDDA was unable to find a licensed doctor in New Mexico with that name. The Facebook page for the practice was created in January with no activity or information on employees.

Are you a volunteer if you get paid? That's a separate debate. However the following story is still worthy of: Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A young woman in Canada’s Saskatchewan Province recently garnered 8.7 million views on a TikTok video of her planting 4,545 trees in a single day.

The video’s author, Leslie Dart, doesn’t have a career in forestry, and rather recently entered the workforce in aerospace manufacturing, a field in which she recently graduated at Durham College in Ontario.

The tree-planting is simply a popular summer job for university students that can nevertheless absorb some people with its deeply-meaningful monotony.
