Tiffany Haddish, Oprah Winfrey, and Donald Trump are just a few of the people who made Time Magazine's list of 100 Most Influential People.


Oprah Winfrey, Tiffany Haddish, Donald Trump, Meghan Markle and Janet Mock are just of the people who made Time’s list of the 100 Most Influential People of 2018. The annual list celebrates people whose time is happening now. 

Each person gets a write-up from a person who admires him or her. For instance, Kevin Hart wrote a blurb about Tiffany, then Tiffany turned around and wrote one for Oprah. Ted Cruz did the honors for The Donald, while Christian Siriano did Mock’s writeup. Pryanka Chopraintro'd Markle.

Other people who made the list include Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Coogler, Trevor Noah, and Gal Gadot. And P.S.? There are a record number of women in the tally. You can see the full list HERE

The Michigan family who made headlines for having 13 boys and one on the way has welcomed another boy.


As we previously told you, the Schwandt family in Michigan made headlines for having 13 boys and were hoping their next little bundle of joy would be a girl. No deal. The suspense is over - Jay and Kateri Schwandt have welcomed another baby boy. The little guy came in at eight pounds, four ounces and 21 inches long on Wednesday, five days before Kateri’s expected due date. 

The newest addition makes 14 boys for the Schwandt family. The oldest is 25 and the youngest before the newborn is 2. Before their 13th child, a genetics counselor had calculated the odds of giving birth to 12 sons in a row at point-zero-two percent.

No word on it they'll try again, but the fam has our congratulations (and mom has our sympathy).

How much food do we waste?

Fruits and vegetables made up 39 percent of total food waste, followed by dairy (17 percent), meat (14 percent) and grains (12 percent).

Americans waste nearly 150,000 tons of food per day, amounting to about one pound (422 grams) per person, and fruits and vegetables are mostly what gets tossed, said a study Wednesday.

The amount of land used annually to grow food that ends up in the garbage in the United States is 30 million acres, or seven percent of total US cropland. Some 4.2 trillion gallons of irrigation water gets wasted, too, said the report in the journal PLOS ONE.

Fruits and vegetables made up 39 percent of total food waste, followed by dairy (17 percent), meat (14 percent) and grains (12 percent).

Items least likely to be thrown out included salty snacks, table oils, egg dishes, candy and soft drinks.

"Higher quality diets have greater amounts of fruits and vegetables, which are being wasted in greater quantities than other food," said co-author Meredith Niles, an assistant professor at the University of Vermont.

"Eating healthy is important, and brings many benefits, but as we pursue these diets, we must think much more consciously about food waste."

The report, based on government data and surveys about food waste from 2007 to 2014, found that the amount of wasted food equals about 30 percent of the average daily calories consumed for every American.
