Today we visit with Paige Howard, she's featured in Nickelodeon’s new space adventure series "The Astronauts" from executive producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer. In the series, the spacecraft Odyssey II is set to retrieve a foreign object that could potentially save mankind. The plan goes awry when five kids use their parents’ security clearances to sneak onto the empty ship and the onboard AI system triggers the launch sequence. In space, the kids must assume their new role as astronauts and brave harrowing tasks, as their parents rush to find a way to control the situation.
In the tradition of HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey, Paige plays Matilda, the Odyssey II’s AI system who helps guide the kids through their dangerous mission. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_rhGIjL6zw&feature=youtu.be

A driver looking to make some quick cash caused quite the spectacle on Interstate 4 through Hillsborough County Monday. Florida Highway Patrol said a driver picked up a downed metal utility pole, strapped it to the roof of his 1997 Toyota Camry, and planned to sell it to a scrapyard. He didn't get too far. Just after 10:00 a.m., FHP got a call from someone who witnessed another driver loading the pole onto his roof on the outside shoulder of I-4 west. The witness followed at a safe distance until a Trooper made a traffic stop. The driver, 71-year-old Douglas Hatley of Lakeland, said he was trying to turn in the pole as scrap metal for cash and that he didn't know it was illegal to remove the pole, even if it was broken or had fallen. Hatley was arrested and taken to the Hillsborough County Jail. He's charged with grand theft. (https://bit.ly/3kHO6IC)
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by TimeForRehab.com
wanna-be rapper from Brooklyn wasn’t going to lose his shot at
blasting a flamethrower from atop a city bus for a guerrilla music
video — even though the illicit nighttime stunt put more than two
dozen passengers in harm’s way. Streams of fire burst into the air
and down the back of the MTA bus in shocking video that emerged on
social media. The 57-second clip shows rapper Dupree G.O.D jumping
shirtless from the top of an ice cream truck onto a B26 bus at
Franklin and Putnam Avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant. He then fires off
his hand-held flamethrower, shooting blazing arcs in the air before
running to the back of the bus and shooting the flames downward,
torching the ground as the bus starts to move. An NYPD spokeswoman
said the department was “aware of the video” and is currently
conducting an investigation. (https://bit.ly/35HT8jP)
