Anniversary gift from son earns woman $1 million lottery jackpot

Oct. 7 (UPI) — A Virginia woman said a scratch-off lottery ticket she received as a wedding anniversary present from her son turned out to be a valuable gift indeed when she won a $1 million jackpot.

Charrondarous Goode-Burroughs, of Richmond, told Virginia Lottery officials her $1 Million Royale Scratcher lottery ticket was a wedding anniversary gift from her son, who purchased the ticket at the E & C VA store in Richmond.

She said the small gift turned into a large boon when she scratched off a $1 million top prize.

“It said $1 million, but I truly didn’t think it was $1 million,” Goode-Burroughs recalled.

The winner said she has not yet decided what to do with her jackpot.

Best Zara Sweatpants and Sweatshirts

At first, tie-dying your matching sweat suits was the cool thing to do in 2020 (honestly, it’s still pretty cool in our books). And as the weather starts cooling down for fall, most major retailers are carrying fashionable versions of sweatshirts and sweatpants so everyone can get in on this comfortable trend. Zara, which is basically our go-to for affordable pieces already, is one of the best spots to score fun, comfy sweatshirts and sweatpants in a variety of colors, cuts, patterns, and sizes.

Here’s the thing: I wore sweatshirts and sweatpants pretty often before this year. (What else would I wear on rainy Sundays spent binge-watching Gilmore Girls?) But even I have to admit the shelter-in-place, working-from-home, crazy quarantine world of 2020 has had me reaching for cozy clothes more than ever before — and I’m saying this as someone who was already working part-time from home before

Why the renamed, reshaped Timpanogos Golf Club may become a model for golf courses around the country

PROVO — Handyman Mike Bate headed for his black Ford 150 pickup truck at 8 a.m. to go home. He’d been at the golf course all night sawing pieces of railroad ties for tee box markers.

This simple act by a guy with a sawzall tool and his all-nighter a week ago is symbolic of the work put into creating a new face and name at the old East Bay Golf Club. The course has endured the brunt of developmental hacks, scraps and scars since its inception in 1923, even before there was a Yankee Stadium in Gotham.

Provo golfers have been pulled like a yo-yo. Bounced like a pinball.

No more.

From now on, it will be known by its historical name, Timpanogos Golf Club, and the facility is now a state-of-the art golf billboard reflecting the most dominating geographical feature in Utah Valley. It also provides a full

Two days after Stranger Things had released

Faces meet fashion in New Yorkers’ mask choices

NEW YORK (AP) — New Yorkers have increasingly embraced the wearing of masks to slow the spread of coronavirus since the pandemic began earlier this year. With no end in sight, many have moved beyond the standard surgical mask and are choosing to express themselves with more fashionable colors, patterns, flags and messages.

Children arrive for the first day of school, wearing masks covered with hearts, books, watermelons and musical notes. A school aide has a row of crayons across her mask, a welcoming design for nervous kindergarteners.

On Madison Avenue, a woman wearing a matching designer mask and scarf strides briskly past high-end clothing stores. And behind her, another sports a mask with skulls.


In Harlem, Hana Teferi steps out of a store wearing a gold, black and silver mask made in Ethiopia that she wears to honor her Ethiopian family. And actor Fredric Michaels wears a kente cloth

Chris Ferguson is showing that space is not his top priority.

In a post on his personal Twitter account Wednesday, Chris Ferguson said he was stepping down as commander of the Boeing Starliner crew and skipping next year’s trip to the International Space Station so he could keep his feet “planted here firmly on Earth.”

He called the decision “difficult and personal,” but one that “prioritizes my most important crew — my family.”

“I’m deeply committed to human space flight. I’m dedicated to the Starliner program, and I’m passionate about the team that has built her. But next year is very important for my family,” Ferguson, who previously piloted the Space Shuttle Atlantis, said in a video attached to his post.

Women’s Career Trajectories Can Be a Model for an Aging Workforce

Executive Summary

Especially as life spans and careers get longer, we hear more about careers with two phases: A steady, effortful climb upward towards commercial success, and then a second phase dedicated to service to others. But for many women, the reality is exactly the reverse. It’s the first half of their lives that is spent balancing professional growth with serving and caring for a variety of others — often children and family — and the second half that affords them the possibility of prioritizing their own voices and ambitions. Many younger women feel trapped while in the first stage; for them, the existence of the second is welcome news. And as men’s career paths begin to look more like women’s, businesses and policy makers will need to take this alternative pattern into account for all their employees by extending flexible and part-time policies to the growing number of over-50
