The U.S. state of Nebraska recently announced that it would be retiring its tourism slogan after 5 years. Because, as it turns out, the tagline, “Nebraska, honestly it’s not for everyone”, honestly ISN’T for everyone. And while that slogan certainly was never going to cause the tourism dollars to start flooding in, it’s probably not the worst state tourism slogan ever. Here are some contenders:

• “Rhode Island: Cooler and Warmer.”

Idaho: “Famous Potatoes.” If they’re that famous, do we have to be reminded?)

Washington: “Say WA?” (The people said “No”!)

and by the way, the universally agreed-upon choice for the BEST state slogan is: “Virginia is for lovers”.


CBS has revealed its new cast for Season 36 of “The Amazing Race”, which premieres March 13th. Host Phil Keoghan will kick things off from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where teams will participate in a traditional Mexican rodeo. Along the way, racers will go paragliding in Colombia, rally car racing in Argentina. They’ll swim through waterfalls in the Dominican Republic and visit Rihanna’s childhood home in Barbados. The cast includes former NFL player Rod Gardner and his wife Leticia; firefighter moms Sunny and Bizzy; military pilots Juan and Shane; and twin brothers Anthony and Bailey, among others.

If you build it, he will come. Kevin Costner is working on his very own field of dreams following a very public divorce from ex-wife Christine Baumgartner, which was finalized this week. The “Yellowstone” actor has partnered with a developer in Utah to bring a $40 million film studio to St. George. The studio plans to break ground on the 153,000 square foot studio space, “in the spring or summer,” depending on how fast the permit processes for the new complex are completed.

Oppenheimer” and Cillian Murphy got another Oscar boost, both picking up awards at the 30th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday. Oppenheimer won the ensemble award and Murphy leading actor in a motion picture, for his title role. Murphy won the BAFTA in the same category last weekend. Lily Gladstone won leading actress for “Killers of the Flower Moon.” So far this awards season, Oppenheimer has won everything it was expected to win – and at the SAG Awards, it added the big prize for which it hadn’t been the strong favorite, taking down “Barbie” and “American Fiction” — a possible indicator that an Oscar upset is in the making.

Traditionally, workout centers see a sharp increase in popularity immediately after the New Year. But apparently, gym attendance in the US has flatlined in the early part of 2024, and trainers are blaming Ozempic. It’s not just because the trendy weight-loss drug is helping people lose weight without the bother of actually working up a sweat (although that sounds nice…). It’s because it seems Ozempic and similar weight-loss drugs have been causing people to become nauseous and sometimes even vomit during workouts. One trainer says he has seen “a handful of new and experienced clients throw up while taking the drugs, because of the dizziness and nausea the drugs can induce.” And a 28-year-old said she has thrown up twice at the gym since starting the drug, but “fortunately the trash can was handy”. Some gym-goers say they are still doing their workouts, but know they have to do it on an empty stomach. Experts say these side-effects of Ozempic explain why, for the first time since early in the pandemic, foot traffic at gyms has tailed off in January and February.
