Angry Napa Valley residents go to war with startup that is buying luxury homes in exclusive neighborhoods across US to sell as timeshares and enraging wealthy neighbors 

 

Pacaso, founded in October by executives from the real estate company Zillow, aims to do to second homes what Airbnb did to hotels and Uber did to taxis. It targets luxury neighborhoods slightly off the usual tourist trails.

Critics say it changes the nature of a neighborhood; the company insists it is making exclusive communities more accessible and, by allowing eight people to share ownership of one home, reducing the intense demand on housing stock.

Help! My Ex-Boyfriend Wants to Pay Me to Go on Dates. 

 

I’m a college student who, a little over a month ago, broke it off with a guy I’d been in a relationship with for 10 months. There was no spark, and I felt like being single and exploring other options. My ex is completely, unabashedly in love with me still and has been taking it really hard. He calls and texts me constantly asking for me back.

I’ve been broke lately, and I mentioned to him off-hand that I’m worried about funding my study abroad this summer. He then offered to pay me to go on dates with him—just a couple dates, until I leave next month. No sex, just “hanging out, the way we used to”—dinner, movies, etc. I’m not worried about the ethics of being paid for something like this (before his offer, I was considering using a get-paid-for-dates service, but I’d rather do that with someone I know); the problem is that I can’t shake the feeling that this is wrong for me to do with him and would only exacerbate things. I feel sorry for him. It seems pragmatic and makes sense in theory—he misses me, so he gets to date me, and I get money for my travels—and he’s a grown man who can make his own decisions about what’s best for him, but I feel like it’d be crazy for me to take him up on his offer. Thoughts?

Sit up! It really will make you happier: Good posture improves your mood, increases concentration and can lower blood pressure, scientists say 

 

Did your parents or teachers ever tell you to ‘sit up straight’ or ‘stop slouching’? It seems they might have had a point.

Scientists have shown that a good posture improves your mood, increases concentration and can lower blood pressure.

The findings come from a study of 82 students in their 20s, who were asked to undertake a series of tests while sitting in different positions. They were not told that the study was observing their posture, but instead thought it was assessing their concentration.

I just watched McDonald's new AI drive-thru and I've lost my appetite 

 

"Welcome to McDonald's," began exactly the same female robot voice you've heard every time you've tried to get through to a customer service operative at every internet provider/cellphone carrier/just about every business these days.

The McDonald's robot continues: "We're currently serving a limited menu, so please review the menu before ordering."

There's little more welcoming than being greeted by an inhuman voice telling you that the thing you want to order may not actually be offered today.

But goodness, this is just an experiment, isn't it? Surely the robot is programmed to offer a tinge of wit, no?

No.

North Carolina councilman calls for people to be FINED and charged with a misdemeanor crime for giving food or money directly to the homeless 

 

A councilman in North Carolina has been slammed after he suggested making it a misdemeanor crime to donate food and money directly to homeless people.

Tariq Bokhari?, who serves as a representative for Charlotte's 6th district, floated the radical idea during a council business meeting on Monday.

'People aren't getting it and they're still bringing food and money and resources directly to the folks that are out there right now,' Bokhari stated during a discussion about strategies to combat Charlotte's homelessness problem.

Gender-neutral 'theyby' turns 5 — as mom now says child is a boy 

 

Author and sociologist Kyl Myers — who made headlines over the last few years for announcing the birth of her gender-neutral "theyby" — has announced that her child, Zoomer, is a boy.

Myers and her husband Brent Courtney did not announce the child's gender when it was born, stating in 2018, "We don't disclose Zoomer's genitals to people who don't need to know."

Cantor Fitzgerald exec and wife refuse to leave Hamptons rental: suit 

 

A top Cantor Fitzgerald exec and his wife are refusing to vacate their tony Hamptons rental — and they are living like a “Hoarders’’ episode while exploiting special COVID-19 rules barring eviction, according to a lawsuit and sources.

Cantor’s “ultra-wealthy” Chief Administration Officer Paul Pion and his wife Stephanie shelled out $10,000 a month for the past two years to rent the $5 million property in exclusive Water Mill, according to papers filed in Suffolk County Supreme Court.

But the couple’s lease expired May 31, and the Long Island home’s owner found a new buyer set to close on the deal Tuesday — yet the Pions refuse to vacate the premises, the document says.

“They aren’t leaving, and it looks like an episode of ‘Hoarders,’ ” said a source familiar with the situation, referring to the TV series about people who collect mounds of things.

California Gov. Newsom declares state of emergency amid extreme heat 

 

California Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency Thursday to address power grid concerns as the western U.S. faces a potential triple-digit heat wave.

Newsom and state utility leaders were widely criticized during a heatwave last summer when more than 200,000 Californians suffered two days of rolling power outages – the first time residents had to deal with such issues in nearly 20 years.

California’s main power grid operator issued a statewide "Flex Alert" earlier in the day, asking residents to do their best to conserve power by setting their thermostats above 78 degrees and avoiding using washers, dishwashers and other major appliances.

More than 4 million Americans face eviction amid worsening housing crisis 

 

More than 4 million people say they fear being evicted or foreclosed upon in the coming months, just as two studies released Wednesday found that the nation's housing availability and affordability crisis is expected to worsen significantly following the pandemic.

The studies come as a federal eviction moratorium is set to expire at the end of the month. The moratorium has kept many tenants owing back rent housed. Making matters worse, the tens of billions of dollars in federal emergency rental assistance that was supposed to solve the problem has not reached most tenants.

Man contracts ‘flesh-eating bacteria’ from using roomie’s razor 

 

He tried to get a smooth chin — and got anything but.

A California man redefined “razor rash” after a shaver mixup resulted in his face getting ravaged by flesh-eating bacteria. His disfiguring fiasco first came to light in April via a series of viral TikTok videos, but the poor soul hadn’t divulged the full story until now.

Toxic 'forever chemicals' detected in half of US makeup, study finds 

 

More than half the cosmetics sold in the United States and Canada are awash with a toxic industrial compound associated with serious health conditions, including cancer and reduced birth weight, according to a new study.

Researchers at the University of Notre Dame tested more than 230 commonly used cosmetics and found that 56% of foundations and eye products, 48% of lip products and 47% of mascaras contained fluorine — an indicator of PFAS, so-called "forever chemicals" that are used in nonstick frying pans, rugs and countless other consumer products.

'Airbnb has secretive 'black box' team paying out $50 million a year to keep disaster stays out of press and gives staff blank checks to help rape victims and clean-up dismembered human remains' 

 

Airbnb has a secretive team to keep disaster stays out of the press and gives staff blank checks to help rape victims and pay to clean up dismembered human remains, according to a report.

Team members have the power to spend any amount tackling the worst crises at their rentals including sexual assaults, murders and deaths - providing support to guests and hosts and also working to keep the incidents out of the public eye, Bloomberg reported.

In one incident, a rape victim received a $7 million payout in exchange for agreeing not to 'imply responsibility or liability' on Airbnb or the host after a 'career criminal' used a duplicate key to enter a New York City rental and attacked her at knifepoint, according to the report.

Others said they had to provide support to guests who had been assaulted by guests and had resorted to hiding in wardrobes or running from secluded cabins from the perpetrators.
