Austin Rivers, Audreyana Michelle announce baby with alley-oop (Video)

Austin Rivers found out he’s having a baby boy with an alley-oop.

Gender reveal parties are getting grander and more extreme these days (and sometimes even dangerous, if you live in California), but Houston Rockets guard Austin Rivers had the right idea.

For his gender reveal with his girlfriend, model Audreyana Michelle, Rivers finished off an alley-oop dunk with a special, miniature-sized ball filled with powder — either blue for a boy or pink for a girl.

The blue powder exploded all over his hands after the dunk, and the couple was able to celebrate the happy news that they’ll be having a baby boy:

Black Women Battling Breast Cancer Deserve More Wig Options, According to Coils to Locs Founder Dianne Austin

Courtesy

When Dianne Austin decided to ditch her relaxer and transition back to her natural hair in 2011, she had no idea that four years later she would be hit with the heartbreaking news of a breast cancer diagnosis.

“My first thoughts were how ironic it was that I went down this path of embracing my natural hair just to lose every strand of it,” she shares with InStyle. “It was a huge decision for me to stop relaxing my hair and to begin to embrace my natural texture after years of relaxing.”

As she began to say goodbye to her own hair, Austin, like many in cancer treatment, was in search of a wig. And while they’re sometimes covered, depending on the healthcare insurance provider, she wasn’t able to find any that even came close to matching her natural coily texture.

That’s why in 2019, she created Coils to

Amazon Prime Day 2020 kicking off early holiday shopping season amid coronavirus pandemic – Business – Austin American-Statesman

Now, Amazon is helping to kick off the holiday shopping season in earnest after delaying its annual sale from July until October amid the coronavirus pandemic.

As they do when Prime Day is held in July, other retailers including Target, Walmart and Best Buy are holding big sales of their own to compete with Amazon’s members-only shopping event.

TEA warns to cut off funding if Austin ISD doesn’t change instruction model for secondary students

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Independent School District superintendent says the learning model being used in many middle and high schools will likely change in November to allow for more personal instruction between teachers and students.

Dr. Stephanie Elizalde told the Board of Trustees at Monday night’s information session that the Texas Education Agency contacted district leaders to inform them virtual instruction, which is being delivered to many in-person students, would not be funded past November.

“How can you say it’s in-person instruction when the students are not getting any time with their teachers,” Elizalde recalled the TEA’s line of questioning to the district.

Elizalde said the district is considering multiple changes to correct this, including having either students rotate between classes or teachers rotating between classes. The district may implement “one-way hallways” to minimize student-to-student spread of COVID-19.

“None of this is ‘zero risk.’ There is no ‘zero risk’
