The excitement of the evening had us moving fast — it seems we had a headline that wasn't quite clear! While Whoopi Goldberg has achieved the EGOT, her Emmy awards were for hosting and her Tony for producing while Viola Davis is the first to win an Emmy, Tony, and Oscar all for acting. Our new headline has been updated and shows that fact.

Didn't Whoopi Goldberg do this too ? Viola needs a Grammy to catch up..

I am glad she won, but her quote about "the only profession" that celebrates how to live life is kind of, well, inconsiderate of those of us who are not an actor or professional artist and also know how to celebrate the meaning of life. I guess it was meant as being an actor and can celebrate life with different characters, but still...

I have NLD. Part of that is an auditory hypersensitivity. To put it in an example, I could be in an office at work. If I hear someone blowing their nose or making sniffy sounds, I couldn't tune those out. I would focus on them And they would REALLY bother me. That's why I wear earbuds as much as possible. I like to control my own environment. My heart goes out to those who have it worse than I do and have to deal with it every day.

As it should be. When they start strolling up onto the beach to attack people, then we can take drastic measures. Until then, the ocean is their home. Enter at your own risk.

Yes, and in Hebrew "shalom" also means hello, good by, and peace. Both words are derived from the same language. How ironic.
Erin C. Erskine
today at 01:19
That's so awesome! But probably not ironic; after all the reason we shake hands is to show we aren't concealing a weapon, so the word "hello" most likely was rooted in identifying oneself as "coming in peace," rather than as an enemy.

I don't understand how people can say they are "colour blind" in regards to race.
It's not a bad thing to recognise that a POC is indeed a POC. Recognise and celebrate those differences, don't negate their experiences and identity by not seeing colour.

Some of us paid attention in history classes. Those figures are readily available and used to be taught.
Now you get all excited and offended when 3000 die in a 10 year conflict. 10x that were lost in a DAY in a couple of major battles during WWII.

One quick question. Why blame all the Soviet deaths on just two major sieges (Stalingrad and Leningrad) and Stalin's leadership, but not mention the purpose for the Nazi invasion? Mein Kampf literally states that all Slavs should either be exterminated or enslaved. Now imprint this idea into the minds of virtually every soldier in your army. I don't defend the Gulags at all, but it's just wrong to leave out the Nazi ideology

Even if I haven't heard of Hatshepsut before public school (like most people), I've certainly heard of her after the 20x you guys have posted this story. Also, from what I remember of history it was her son or her brother (can't remember which, by it was Ramses II) that tried to wipe her and all other Pharaohs out because he had a narcissistic personality and wanted to be seen as the only ruler. Egypt was very equal for women's rights and to suggest otherwise is offensive to their history.

she had no choice when she came in as a child, but since then she has had plenty of time to become a citizen. Even if she is working, she is still illegal.

If you are undocumented, you are not here legally in the U.S. You don't have the legal documents to be here. So, however they came here - why can't they go through the legitimate channels to obtain the correct documents to become actual citizens? I know I may sound naive, but i'm just trying to understand.

My grandparents came here legally from Italy. Applied for the proper Visa and followed the rules to become citizens 3 years later. We are a country of immigrants and all are welcome but so not insult those before you by ignoring the laws of this country.

It appears that not only mankind has evolved. Some species of apes seem to have entered stoneage. Meaning they have learned how to make and use stone tools and domesticate dogs or wolfes. Once they learn to master fire we will get company!

Etheopian wolves diet are small rodents lizards eggs scavenging
They are not Grey wolves which would attack gelados if given the chance
Gelados diet is grass not very nutritious so why waste energy attacking an Ethiopian Wolf which posses no threat and visa versa

Why would anyone be suspicious of a kid? I think that's a stupid thing to say. People also need to quit bringing this crap up. Every race deals with bullshit. It's not just one-sided. Quit teaching your kids into thinking that everyone is out to get them. It gets on my nerves.

This is such bullshit. Those apples of one hundred years ago tasted like crap which was why growers worked to change them. Fruit and vegetables have always been bred for the characteristics that provided the most popular and pleasing flavor and ability to be viable to grow and market. This has been the agriculture has always been done. Articles like this are written by people who have never farmed for a living and who have an outsiders viewpoint and agenda.

This sums up my gorgeous hubby and I, I am so incredibly blessed to have such a loving and caring man who always makes me feel special everyday, he does sweet thoughtful things every day, I get the kisses on the forehead, cups of tea, blankets to tuck me in, my favourite part of each day is when he comes home from work, nothing in this world makes me happier than having the pleasure of his company. I hope everyone is as lucky as I am and gets to experience true love, it is something so special 💕

This is great because as an asexual aromantic I've never fully understood love and all I see connected to it is usually sexualized things that I have no interest in! Apart from the few things with physical intimacy in them I could definitely have a relationship based on things like this and it gives me hope that maybe one day I will! I'm happy being independent but it would be nice to see what it's like to have a significant other! Thanks for sharing/posting this!

I came home from work the next day and low and behold.. brand new toilet seat... did I text my husband with a ton of little hearts about how much I loved my new toilet seat!! Yes I did... I told him if anyone ever saw our texts to each other they would think we are crazy!!! Lol!
