Robert Irwin re-creates a childhood photo with late father Steve Irwin in dad’s ‘special car’


Resurfaced interview clip shows Billie Eilish opening up about her Tourette Syndrome

We’ve come a long way in our understanding and representation of chronic conditions. However, certain disorders, like Tourette Syndrome, remain mostly under mystery and stigma.

Symptoms of Tourette Syndrome revolve around involuntary, repetitive movements or sounds known as “tics,” such as facial grimacing, twitching, humming, jerking the head and yelling out phrases or even swear words. These behaviors, which aren’t the norm in most social interactions, have often been the punchline of a joke or resulted in bullying.

Over the years, several celebrities have come forward revealing themselves as having Tourette Syndrome in an effort to raise awareness of the neurological disorder, perhaps the most well known being pop idol Billie Eilish.

Robert Irwin re-creates a childhood photo with late father Steve Irwin in dad’s ‘special car’

Robert Irwin recently shared a sweet moment he had with his late father, Steve. The 19-year-old conservationist posted a throwback picture on Instagram of himself as a toddler sitting on his dad’s lap and holding the wheel of his father’s car, as per TODAY. “My dad’s ute… it’s a special car,” Irwin captioned the post. He also shared that when he was little, his dad “would park and pretend to let me drive.”

In the adorable post, Robert shared a picture of driving his dad’s vehicle and sitting where his father once did. Steve Irwin’s “ute” is of sentimental value to the family. Both Robert and his sister, Bindi, 24, appeared for their driver’s tests in the car, and the vehicle “still comes on road trips to this day,” Robert revealed on Instagram. Their mother, Terri Irwin, also got emotional and shared in a Twitter post about seeing her son learn to drive in her late husband’s vehicle. “Remembering how much Robert loved being with Steve, parked at home pretending to drive,” she said in her 2020 tweet. “I know Steve would be incredibly proud.”

T-Mobile sets another industry-leading goal to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040

We’ve all been hearing urgent warnings from scientists, government, and corporate leaders on the need to limit the planet’s global temperature warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius to avoid the most devastating impacts of climate change.

Several studies, including research from the National Academy of Sciences indicate if we continue on the path we are on, we will likely hit that pivotal moment of global warming in the early 2030s. It’s clear that more needs to be done —and faster—to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and secure a thriving and sustainable economy for everyone.

Broader research is also showing people care more than ever about what companies are doing to address this challenge. In a 2022 global survey from IBM, 51% of respondents said environmental sustainability is more important to them now than it was the year before. And a 2022 Yale survey found that 51% of U.S. business students would even take lower pay to work for a company with better environmental practices — a signal of the topic’s importance.

Legendary organist Garth Hudson, 85, makes his first performance ‘in years’ at a low-key show

Garth Hudson, 85, made a name for himself being a quiet presence in a raucous band … The Band, that is. Hudson played organ, accordion, and the occasional saxophone in an outfit initially known as The Hawks, which became known as The Band after backing Bob Dylan in the mid-’60s when he controversially went electric.

The Band would also back Dylan on his famous “Basement Tapes” sessions in 1967 that were eventually released in 1975.

After being introduced to the world through Dylan, The Band made a name for itself as one of the most talented ensembles in rock history, recording classic songs including “The Weight,” “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” and “Up on Cripple Creek.”

Kelly Clarkson tears up after Henry Winkler shares some simple advice for her dyslexic daughter

Henry Winkler is best known for playing one of the most iconic TV characters of all time, Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzerelli, on “Happy Days.” But at 77, his career is still going strong as he plays acting coach Gene Cousineau on HBO Max’s critically-acclaimed “Barry.”

But success hasn’t been easy for Winkler. He had a challenging time in school as a child because he had undiagnosed dyslexia. The disorder also made it extremely difficult for him to memorize lines as an actor.

“When I was growing up in New York City, no one knew what dyslexia was,” he said, according to The Reading Well. “I was called stupid and lazy, and I was told that I was not living up to my potential. It was, without a doubt, painful. I spent most of my time covering up the fact that reading, writing, spelling, math, science—actually, every subject but lunch—was really, really difficult for me.”
