Lottery Ticket Winner in Florida Forced To Forfeit Prize Because USPS Misplaced Her Ticket

Published

on

The US Postal Service lost a $1,000 lottery winning ticket for a woman in Florida. She was forced to forfeit the prize. Sue Burgess found out that she had a winning ticket on July 29. Typically, for prizes above $600, winners go to the lottery office to claim the prize. But the pandemic forced the closure of local lottery offices.

So, Burgess had only two good options; to mail the ticket via USPS’s certified mail or to dropping at a drop box in a local lottery office. She preferred the certified mail option, which, ideally, would have delivered her ticket to the Florida headquarters within a week.

That’s why you chose certified mail,” Burgess said. “With COVID, I understand the Mail is a little bit slow. But for safety sake, certified mail usually has priority.”

According to the tracking information, obtained by WFLA, the mail left the post office in Tallahassee, Florida, at around 7 am on Aust 12. However, it did not get to the lottery tickets headquarters, and the status of the delivery is “in transit.”

Because the ticket did not get to the lottery office on time, the prize went to an alternate winner.

The USPS and the lottery office are investigating the matter. The lottery office also said that if the ticket is found postmarked within another week, they will allow Burgess to cash it.

“Ms. Burgess’ situation is an unusual circumstance and, to our knowledge, no other winner has experienced a similar issue.”

Because the Lottery did not receive Ms. Burgess’ ticket within the seven-day claim period, an alternate winner was selected and paid. However, if Ms. Burgess’ package arrives at Florida Lottery Headquarters with a date stamp prior to the original expiration date, our Claims Processing department will process and pay her claim,” the Florida lottery office wrote in a statement.

However, she is not confident that it will be found in time.

A High School Teacher Loses Her Job After Students Discovered She Was On OnlyFans

Published

on

A high school teacher in California was fired for having an OnlyFans account, according to a report on Trendings.net. Apparently, she wasn’t making enough from her teaching job.

The 26-year-old Hispanic teacher’s user name on OnlyFans was Denisse. Her account states, “Adult content.” Her 160 explicit posts had more than 8k likes. 

Unfortunately for her, students found her account, and the screenshots went viral. Unsurprisingly, she was fired. 

Considering her charges of $5 for a regular subscription and a special offer of $25.47 for three months, and her relatively high fan base, losing her teaching job might not have a significant financial strain. 

The pandemic has forced teachers, who do not make a lot anyway, to find other means to earn income, including OnlyFans. Some are even using the site to attract adult learners. 

“It’s becoming more stressful these days. We have to worry about catching the [COVID-19]; we have figure out how to teach virtually; it’s just too much. Plus, I got bills to pay, and a teacher’s salary isn’t cutting it,” Cindy Asher, an elementary school teacher in Queens, NY, said in an interview with Knee Grow News. 

Cindy said she has an account on OnlyFans. However, she uses it to find adult learners. Her charges are $25 a month. 

“I think OnlyFans is a great platform to reach out to these adult learners and still earn some money,” she added. 

To the question of how comfortable she is using a platform popular for X-rated content, she answered:

“I know about that, and I have no problem with it. As a matter of fact, when I teach, my titties are out too. And occasionally, I’ll do a lil twerk here and there in the middle of class to keep things interesting.”

OnlyFans is a social networking platform where you can upload all sorts of content. However, it is more popular with models and sex workers.

With 2020 and what is happening on earth, NASA might just have good news for us. They say they have “exciting news” about the moon. 

News that suggests that what they have discovered can be applied to the agency’s plan to live on the moon! You heard us, honeymooners! 

NASA plans to make the public announcement through an event that will be live on Monday 26 noon eastern time. 

The chief exploration scientist in NASA’s AES within the HEOMD(Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate) at Nasa’s Headquarters, Jacob Bleacher, the astrophysics division director (in the Science Mission Directorate) at NASA Headquarters, Paul Hertz, Sciences and Exploration Directorate, Casey Honnibal and SOFIA(Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy) mission project scientist Naseem Rangwala will be in attendance. 

There is an Artemis program that hopes to send the next man and the first woman to the moon in 2024 and in the 2030s, maybe launch missions to Mars with it as a base. 

NASA hasn’t disclosed anything about the discovery other than it came from SOFIA and, we quote, “contributes to Nasa’s efforts to learn about the Moon in support of deep space exploration”. 

SOFIA is a plane (Boeing 747SP aircraft) that allows researchers to observe from almost anywhere in the world and areas there are no telescopes.

The Observatory was made possible by a partnership between the German Aerospace Centre and NASA. It picks a phenomenon that is impossible to see with visible light. 

For the first time in forty years, for instance, it had observed (2016) in Mar’s atmosphere the presence of Oxygen. Can’t wait to breathe the Marsian air!

If made possible, will you stay on earth or join us on the Moon honey? Leave your comment below.

As reported in DailyMail, T.J.Brown, 46, Scarborough, 42, and 82-year-old Charles were arrested in late June in Henry County, Tenessee, on multiple accounts of aggravated child abuse and animal cruelty.

The adults were accused of keeping Scarborough’s 18-months-old son in a metal cage near a 10 foot Giant Boa snake. The cage was crawling with cockroaches, and there were rats and mice next o the cage. The court officials heard details about the vile conditions of the home where the young toddler was found living in a cage near a giant boa constrictor snake.

The three adults appeared in Tenessee court last week, where they claimed that the cage was the ‘safest’ place for the kid in their animal-overridden and filthy home.

Monte Belew, Henry County Sheriff, said there were eight snakes total living inside the room with the boy as well as dozens of dogs running around the property.

Hiker In Utah Encounters A Cougar In The Wild And Lives To Tell The Story

Published

on

A cougar stalked a hiker in Utah for 6 minutes. The hiker recorded the whole terrifying encounter and uploaded it on YouTube.

Kyle Burgess was on a hike at the Slate Canyon Trail, near Provo, Utah, last weekend when he encountered the big wild cat. The video he recorded shows that he first came across cougar cubs along the trail. The cubs were not as terrifying, so he continued with his run.

However, a few meters ahead, he came face-to-face with the mother. That was when his survival instincts kicked in. He started backpedaling. The mountain lion started following him. In an effort not to encourage him to pounce, Burgess walked backward slowly. But that did not stop the big cat from rushing at him several times.

Burgess tried several tactics to scare away the predator. He made himself bigger, tried making scary sounds, shouted foul words, even tried negotiating with the animal by calling her ‘dude.’

Eventually, what worked was a well-aimed stone. The animal ran away fast the moment the stone dropped near it.

Maybe Burgess got lucky. Regardless, there are lessons to take away from his encounter. If you encounter cubs, the mother is probably not far away. Additionally, do not run from a predator and try making yourself big to discourage it from pouncing.

More Than 6.8 Tons Of Weed Concealed In Toilets Seized At The Mexican Border

CBP

The Office of Field Operations officers of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at the World Trade Bridge near Laredo, Texas, seized a shipment of toilets that contained about 6.8 tons of marijuana, according to a report on Breaking 911.

As our frontline CBP officers at World Trade Bridge seek to facilitate lawful commerce in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, they maintain a robust enforcement posture and that vigilance and attention to detail resulted in the seizure of more than six and a half tons of marijuana hidden within the commodity,” said Andrew Douglas, the Acting Port Director at the Laredo Port of Entry.

The CBP officers at the cargo facility seized the shipment at the World Trade Bridge on October 2. The toilet shipment containing the weed was in a 2015 Freightliner Tractor coming from Mexico. The drugs were discovered by a sniffer dog and non-intrusive imaging system inspection.

The inspection led to the unearthing of 1,017 packages concealed in commercial toilets, which contained about 13,744 pounds (6.8 tons) of marijuana. The seized marijuana has a street value of approximately $2.7 million.

CBP forwarded the case for further investigation to the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HIS) special agents.
