THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
My boyfriend of eight months is a single dad with three children, and we usually take turns spending money on each other for dates. However, I've recently started feeling uncomfortable with him bringing his children along and expecting me to pay. And a few times he has asked me to pay for things his kids have bought. I didn't make a big deal out of it at first because it wasn't that much money. I mean, I do quite well and I can handle $30 or $40. But it's getting more and more frequent. Then yesterday, he called and said he wanted to buy a game for his oldest son. I asked what this had to do with me, and he told me he was short on money and needed $500. I hesitated but agreed. He asked for my credit card info so he could pay. That's where I drew the line. I told him to wait for me until I got there. He got mad at me, saying he didn't get why I was acting like this. I had to hang up. Last night, he asked why I didn't just send him the info so he could pay for the game like we agreed on. I told him I don't feel comfortable letting anyone have my personal info, especially when it comes to finances. He yelled, 'I'm NOT JUST ANYONE, I'M YOUR PARTNER!' We had a fight, and he left. The last thing he said was I'd better have an apology for him and his son the next time we speak. What should I do?

people before surgery is becoming more and more common around the
world, according to a report in New Scientist. And some patients can
fall so deeply “under” that they are able to undergo major
operations without any anesthetic – and feel no pain. Some doctors
say that they are also using the technique more widely alongside
drugs, and reporting that hypnosis helps relieve patients’ anxiety
during procedures where people remain awake, such as biopsies, and
this can cut the amount of medication required.

Jeremy Piven says Mark Wahlberg is the key to “Entourage” making a comeback. Wahlberg recently went on the record in support of an Entourage reboot, but he hasn’t committed to starring in a potential series. He was a co-executive producer on the original show and Piven said that now, it’s just a matter of Wahlberg stepping up to the plate and giving fans what they’re clamoring for. He feels that all that needs to happen for Entourage to return is for Mark to carve out time from his notoriously busy schedule, and get on the phone with HBO.
“The Kelly Clarkson Show” is making a major move for next season. The daytime talk show, hosted by “The Voice” coach, is officially relocating to New York City this fall, where it will film in front of a live audience at NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Center in Manhattan. Clarkson’s talk show has been based out of the Universal City lot in LA since its debut in 2019 but opened its last 2 seasons with week-long stints out of New York City.
The American Film Institute has confirmed that its 49th annual “AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Nicole Kidman” is being postponed due to Hollywood’s ongoing writers strike. The event was scheduled for June 10. The AFI said in a statement. “Due to the division in our community at this time, AFI has decided to postpone this year’s event with the goal to offer a celebratory environment worthy of our recipient.” Kidman was set to become the first Australian actor to receive the AFI honor.
Mark Zuckerberg has been putting his martial arts training to good use. The Facebook founder won gold and silver medals at a local jiu-jitsu tourney in Northern California — his first time competing. 38-year-old Zuckerberg kicked butt at a tourney in Redwood City, where he put his new skills on display, competing in both Gi (jacket) and no Gi. Not bad for a guy who is fairly new to the sport. Last year, Zuckerberg told Joe Rogan that he began practicing martial arts during the pandemic.

The world can feel pretty rotten sometimes, but new findings reveal that a small act of kindness occurs about every 2 minutes. Researchers at UCLA, in collaboration with an international team of scientists, found that people all over the world signal others for assistance every couple of minutes — and the vast majority of the time people are there to help. It was found that individuals complied with small requests 77% of the time, compared to ignoring them 11% of the time, and rejecting the chance to help someone, which happened 10% of the time.
A team of doctors successfully performed brain surgery on an infant girl — before she was even born. Kenyatta Coleman and her husband Derek, of Baton Rouge LA learned late in her pregnancy that their baby had a rare and dangerous brain condition known as vein of Galen malformation. When they learned of a clinical trial run by some Boston-area hospitals to address it, they were in. Despite serious potential risks for mom and baby, surgeons were able to successfully perform the ultrasound-guided procedure. Yes, in-utero surgery has been used for other conditions, but this was among the first for such a rare and delicate condition. Two days later, Denver Coleman was born, weighing just over 4 pounds. Doctors say she’s doing very well, and there’s no sign she needs any further intervention. Her mom said: “She’s shown us from the very beginning that she was a fighter. She’s demonstrated … ‘Hey, I wanna be here.’”
