Jill Duggar Cut Ties With the Duggars After Autonomy Was “Taken Away”

Earlier this month, Jill and Derick answered fans’ questions about their departure on YouTube. 

“We found out we didn’t have as much control over our lives as it related to the show and stuff, as we needed. We had to make a decision at that time to kind of put the show aside just so like to pursue our own goals and everything. That’s when we made that decision,” she explained at the time. “It was just a good decision for us.”

Derick weighed in, “We were kind of put between a rock and a hard place where we had to choose between our family goals over filming and it really felt like it was in the best interest as a family to pursue our family goals.”

And this isn’t the only clash between the Dillards and the network. Back in November 2017, TLC cut ties with Derick after he

A ‘building distrust’ in public health agencies is ‘the elephant in the room,’ Fauci says

“It’s absolutely essential because if you’re going to make scientific-based public health recommendations, everything has got to be transparent,” Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, told the group of government watchdogs.

“Otherwise once you lose the confidence of people, they don’t believe what you’re saying or they believe you’re holding things back or they believe there’s a political motivation to things,” Fauci said. The interview was conducted last week and made public after inquiries by the project.

“And we’ve got to admit it, those of us in government, all of us, you and I and all of the people that work for me, and all the people that work for you, that there is a building distrust now in the transparency of what we do,” he added.

“It’s the elephant in the room.”

Governments must be transparent in health crisis

Online personal training courses can provide an affordable, flexible, and effective alternative to face-to-face personal trainers. The main difference between the two is that an online personal trainer is not usually physically present when a person is working out.

The U.S. government accused Iran of being behind the recent threatening emails sent to several voters in Florida, Arizona, and Alaska during a press conference on Wednesday. 

The Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said that the emails, which were designed to make it look like they came from the far-right group Proud Boys, were “desperate attempts by desperate adversaries.”

“Our elections systems are resilient and you can be confident your votes are secure,” Ratcliffe said during the press conference. “We will not tolerate foreign interference in our elections.” 

After Radcliffe, FBI director Christopher Wray spoke briefly about election security, promising Americans that the Bureau is tracking any efforts to undermine the election.

Go Inside a Zoom Horror Film With ‘Take This Lollipop 2’

For fans of webcam horror flicks like Host and Unfriended, there’s now a new interactive short called Take This Lollipop 2 that will put you right into the Zoom grid — and danger.

Take This Lollipop 2 is a sequel-of-sorts to a 2011 Facebook app with the same name, which took a user’s personal information and used it to make them the star of a horror movie — the victim of a creepy stalker played by Bill Oberst Jr. The title is a reference to the 1963 song “Please Little Girl, Take This Lollipop,” as well as the well-worn warning not to take candy from strangers.

As director Jason Zada says, “The first film experience played on the very real growing concern about data security that for years had been splashed endlessly across major news headlines. Lollipop codified a collective feeling about what could happen if personal data got into
