Jonathan Scott Gushes Over His ‘Favorite Person’ Zooey Deschanel On Her 41st Birthday

Happy Birthday, Zooey Deschanel. In honor of the ‘Elf’ actress turning 41, Zooey’s boyfriend, ‘Property Brothers’ star Jonathan Scott, penned a touching message to his ‘hilarious’ and ‘sweet’ love.

“Today is my favorite person’s birthday,” wrote Jonathan Scott on Jan. 17. The 42-year-old Property Brothers star was talking about his girlfriend of over a year, Zooey Deschanel, who turned 41 that day. Jonathan shared an Instagram Gallery full of memories – including a shot of them at a Halloween party and a gorgeous photo of Zooey with a handful of flowers – while penning an ode to his love. “You are caring, talented, hilarious, sweet, and just as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside. I know we can’t celebrate like we did last year, but I have a few surprises up my sleeve.”

“You fill my life with so much joy,” concluded Jonathan. His message comes five months after he and the New Girl star celebrated their 1-year anniversary. “One year ago today, I met this kind, caring, hilarious, generous, creative, nerdy, handsome and all-around incredible human,” wrote Zooey in her Aug. 4 message. “I am so grateful for every smile, kiss, hug, snuggle, laugh, scrabble game, escape room, breakfast, lunch, and dinner we share together.” Jonathan, in response to this, wrote how much “time flies when you’re having the best time in your life.”

Zooey and Jonathan, as first reported by HollywoodLife, went public with their relationship in September 2019. The couple had first met while filming an episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series and hit it off. When Zooey and Jonathan were spotted holding hands, she had been separated from her then-husband Jacob Pechenik for “several months.” The couple, who share two children (daughter Elsie and son Charlie), finalized the divorce in 2020.

Since then, it appears Zooey and Jonathan have found a love strong enough to survive anything – including a global pandemic, political upheaval, and everything else that 2020 threw at them. In the first few days of 2021, Zooey celebrated her “2020 MVP” by sharing a photo of her hugging Jonathan. “[He] always made me feel happy in spite of a weird and uncertain year,” she added. “Hoping 2021 is full of silver linings for everyone.” Shortly after Zooey posted her message, Jonathan wrote a message on his own Instagram account.

“I’m dedicating this year to love, happiness, and the pursuit of helping others. I feel like I’ve got a good jumpstart on the love part [face covered in hearts emoji] what are your resolutions? #HappyNewYear.”

Jeff Bezos, director of Amazon, ended the week once again becoming the richest person in the world, with an estimated net bluff of $ 181.5 billion, although his fortune fell on Friday in $ 1.4 billion.

Tesla’s Elon Musk and Bezos have been shifting their places on Forbes’ billionaires list due to changes in the markets.

After the president-elect, Joe biden, released the details of a new stimulus project for coronavirus from $ 1.9 trillion, investors reacted to the possibility of a second impeachment trial of the president Donald trump in the Senate, which could delay the approval of the new stimulus bill for weeks, along with the possibility of a tax increase in the incoming administration.

On Friday the shares of Amazon fell less than 1 percent while Tesla’s closed 2 percent less, reason enough to place Bezos in front of Musk.

Related: Elon Musk recommended using Signal instead of WhatsApp, but a mix-up led to an error.

In general terms, technology stocks are down, due to the presentation of the Biden stimulus bill. Financial indicators such as the Dow Jones index closed the week down 0.9% while the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 index ended down 1.5 percent respectively, as reported by the site. Yahoo! Finance.

The person who wrote “Trump” on the back of a manatee could be fined up to $ 100,000 | The State

The Florida Center for Biological Diversity is offering a $ 5,000 reward to find those responsible.

A sea ​​cow in Florida it was mutilated this weekend when a video showed that the word “TRUMP“.

As the United States continues to bring protesters who violently stormed the Capitol last week to justice, hundreds of miles from Washington uncovered a different kind of violence. A group of people mutilated a manatee’s back by scraping the word “Trump” on its back, as reported by the Citrus Country Chronicle.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is investigating the harassment suffered by the sea ​​cow which was reported during the weekend when he was swimming in the Homosassa River, in the north of the state of Florida. In a broadcast video you can see the letters scraped on the mammal’s back that indicate the degree of trauma it suffered.

Authorities have reported that charges will be brought against anyone found to be involved in the mutilation, injury and harassment of these animals. The culprits could be fined up to $ 100,000 dollars, according to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).

In 2019 the president Donald trump signed the Law for the Prevention of Cruelty and Torture of Animals in which intentional acts of animal cruelty they turn into federal crimes with up to seven years in prison, as reported by the newspaper The New York Times.

“Manatee are not billboards and people should not mess with these sensitive and endangered animals for any reason,” he said. Jaclyn lopez, Florida director of the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), in a press release. “However, this political graffiti that was put on this manatee is a crime by interfering with these creatures that are protected by multiple federal laws.”

In Florida manatees receive special protection due to their vulnerability as threatened animals and to be in danger of extinction. These aquatic giants are under the protection of the United States Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, by the Endangered Species Act of 1973, and by the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act of 1978.

Related: One of the assailants he disrupted in Congress took a lectern and auctioned it on eBay for nearly $ 15,000.

CBD is offering a reward of $ 5,000 dollars For information leading to those responsible for the mutilation of the manatee, anyone with information can contact them through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation hotline at (888) 404-3922 or to email [email protected].

Manatee, also known as sea cows, are one of the most unusual and charismatic aquatic animals on the continent. Like cows, They feed on aquatic grasses, herbs, algae and they can chew the equivalent of one tenth of their own body weight in just 24 hours. This diet generates a lot of methane in your intestines and use this gas as a means to regulate their buoyancy that by retaining it, they can rise to the surface. As manatees dive, they can sink to the bottom, emitting gases.

Only one person showed up to the pro-Trump protest outside Twitter’s San Francisco HQ

It’s the second week of 2021. Last week began with an insurrection, siege of the US Capitol building, and rejection of democracy, and it ended with all major social media companies banning the one-time impeached 45th president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

One of those companies was Twitter. On the Donald.win forum, Trump supporters announced a plan to show their discontent by protesting in front of the San Francisco headquarters earlier today. The building was empty, with Twitter employees working from home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but there was still a heavy police presence to protect against mob violence. What happened instead was a fairly quiet event, with just a single pro-Trump protester in evidence — and two counter-protesters there to applaud Twitter’s decision to deplatform the outgoing president.

Twitter’s headquarters on Market St. in San Francisco was barricaded with fences.

Katherine King is happy with the actions Twitter took, but only wishes they came sooner.

Police vans parked in the alley behind the Twitter headquarters.

Riot gear was left unused during the pro-Trump protest near Twitter’s headquarters.

Graffiti on the wall wasn’t related to the protest, but was sprayed on the night before.

NYC records its first homicide of 2021 as one person is killed and two injured in Queens shooting

New York City has recorded its first homicide of 2021 as one person was killed and two others were injured in a shooting at a Queens hotel just one hour after the ball dropped in Time’s Square. 

The triple shooting took place outside the Umbrella Hotel on Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens just after 1 a.m. Friday following a dispute with a group of people that left a 20-year-old man dead. 

Between midnight New Year’s Eve and mid-morning on New Year’s Day, at least seven people had already been shot across the city.  

The deadly start to the new year comes after 2020 marked the bloodiest year since 2011 with at least 447 murders across the Big Apple.

The triple shooting took place outside the Umbrella Hotel on Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens just after 1 a.m. Friday following a dispute with a group of people that left a 20-year-old man dead

NYPD officers responded to reports of a shooting outside the Umbrella Hotel at around 1:10 a.m. and found three people with gunshot wounds. 

One victim, a 20-year-old male, had been shot in the body, and another 20-year-old male had been shot in the left leg, according to the NYPD. 

The third victim, a 40-year-old male, had been shot in the torso, arms and legs.

The victims were rushed to Queens General Hospital where the younger male with the gunshot wound to the body was pronounced dead.

The NYPD said Friday morning that the other two victims are still in hospital in ‘non-critical’ conditions.  

The victims have not been identified as authorities are working to notify the families of the victims first.

An NYPD spokesperson told DailyMail.com there had been a dispute between the victims and a group of people before the shooting.

It is not yet clear if the victims knew each other or whether they were staying at the hotel at the time, police said.  

No arrests have been made and a motive for the shooting is not yet known. The investigation is ongoing.

The Umbrella Hotel has been the backdrop for at least two other shootings in recent months.

The deadly start to the new year comes after 2020 marked the bloodiest year since 2011 with at least 447 murders across the Big Apple

On July 3, a 15-year-old boy allegedly shot an 18-year-old as they both walked out of the hotel.

Then on August 9, a drive-by shooting left bullet holes in the hotel’s doors. 

Friday’s three victims were among seven people shot in the city so far in 2021. 

Just after midnight, a 33-year-old woman was shot while lying in her bed in Ozone Park.

The woman was in bed inside her home on Lincoln Avenue in the City Line section of Brooklyn when a stray bullet flew through the window at around 12:07 a.m. and hit her in the leg.

She was taken to Brookdale University Hospital in a stable condition.  

Fears are mounting that the Big Apple could be in store for another crime-ridden year after murders and gun crime soared throughout 2020 as it grappled with the coronavirus pandemic. 

The year marked the bloodiest year in nearly a decade for New Yorkers, with a staggering 447 murders recorded in 2020.

The victims were rushed to Queens General Hospital where the younger male with the gunshot wound to the body was pronounced dead

The 447 currently tallied is the highest number since 2011 when 515 murders took place and a 41 per cent increase from 2019. 

It also marks the third consecutive year of rising homicides after New York City recorded a modern-era low of 292 killings in 2017. 

Shootings have also soared with 1,855 people shot in 2020 – more than double the 914 victims in 2019. 

Overall shooting incidents have also surged 97.4 percent in a single year, up from 769 in 2019 to 1,518 in 2020. 

The figures, from the NYPD’s Compstat, cover the period from January 1 up to December 27, meaning they could rise higher still. 

At least one incident not accounted for in the figures was the shooting death of a 26-year-old man in the Jamaica section of Queens Thursday night. 

Sean Vance was sitting in a blue BMW sedan on Linden Blvd. just before 7:30 p.m. when a gunman shot him several times in the chest and fled.

One of the youngest victims of 2020’s wave of shootings was 1-year-old baby Davell Gardner who was killed when gunfire rung out at a family gathering in Brooklyn on July 14.  

Meanwhile, one of the last was a 24-year-old man who was shot just three minutes before the turn of the new year as he got into a car in Washington Heights.

The victim suffered a gunshot wound to his left arm and drove himself to Columbia University Irving Medical Center.  

Crime statistics from the four weeks between November 30 to December 27 also show violent crime is far higher than it was the same time last year, with 21 murders to 2019’s 13 and 109 shootings compared to 49 the year before. 

The spate of violence has sparked fears the Big Apple is headed back to the dark days of the 70s and 80s when crime and poverty was rife.

Tensions have been building between Bill de Blasio and the NYPD after the mayor cut $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion budget in June.

The cuts came as calls to ‘defund’ the police grew from Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of the Memorial Day ‘murder’ of black man George Floyd in Minneapolis, when shocking footage circulated on social media of NYPD cops attacking protesters gathered to demand an end to police brutality and racism.

Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said Tuesday he was hopeful of a better 2021. 

‘We’re definitely coming out of that dark period,’ Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said at police headquarters Tuesday. 

‘The confluence of COVID into the protests into all of the debate about defunding the police – I can’t imagine a darker period.’  

New York remains far safer than in three decades ago in the early 1990s, when there were more than 2,000 killings each year.

It’s also statistically far safer than many of the other big cities. 

As the nation’s largest city, with about 8.3million residents, New York City has a homicide rate of about 5.2 per 100,000.

By contrast, Los Angeles, which has 4 million residents, has a rate of about 8 per 100,000.

Mitch McConnell Blocks Democrats’ Attempt to Approve $ 2,000 Per Person Check | The State

The leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell (Kentucky), blocked the minority leader’s proposal Charles schumer (New York), to approve the increase to $ 2,000 of the stimulus check to each American.

Although the Republican said that this issue will be addressed, he opposed the first attempt by Democrats to endorse the bill approved in the House of Representatives and supported by the president. Donald trump.

“There is a big difference between saying you support $ 2,000 checks and fighting to make it law.”Schumer said. “The House bill is the only way to deliver these stimulus packages before the end of the session. Will Republicans in the Senate oppose the House of Representatives, the Democratic majority in the Senate and the chairman of their own party to prevent these $ 2,000 checks from going forward?

McConnell responded to his opposition without giving reason.

The senator Bernie sanders (Vermont) also asked to pass the bill, but again the Republican leader objected.

McConnell said the stimulus payments plan would be considered, but alongside other demands by President Donald Trump, such as protections for tech companies.

“This week the Senate will begin a process to address these three priorities,” McConnell said.

In addition, the vote on President Trump’s veto of military funds is scheduled for this Wednesday, when the issue of the aid check could be a bargaining chip, as the Democrats advanced.

The senator Kirsten gillibrand (New York) also joined the approval of the aid increase and affirms that there are Republican senators who support the motion.

“Along with all Senate Democrats, several Republican senators support these emergency checks, which will provide a crucial lifeline for millions of American families,” he said. “Leader McConnell must end the obstruction and let the Senate vote to deliver this much-needed relief to American families.”

A person who went to work while sick likely the cause of two separate Covid-19 outbreaks in Oregon

Officials in Oregon say a ‘superspreader’ who knowingly went to work despite feeling sick is probably behind two recent Covid-19 outbreaks in the state, which has left seven dead and more than 300 quarantined

The two separate Covid-19 outbreaks have been traced back to one individual, who went to work while sick and later tested positive for COVID.

Seven people died as a result of the first outbreak, while hundreds were forced to self-isolate over the second one. 

‘One of those outbreaks has resulted in seven deaths, and the other recent outbreak has placed over 300 people/families in quarantine,’ a statement from the Douglas County government states, which is located in southern Oregon.

‘We can’t even imagine the tremendous remorse these people are feeling right now, and we sympathize with them.’ 

Officials did not say where the infected person is employed, or when it is they went into work.

Two outbreaks in Oregon have been traced back to one individual who, according to Douglas County officials, went to work while sick last week. Pictured, Protesters hold a rally outside the Oregon State Capitol in Salem as legislators meet for a special session to discuss COVID-19 relief measures

County officials termed the incident a ‘superspreader action’ and stated it to be ‘one of the most concerning issues we are facing right now.’ 

‘In addition to the super spreader events, we also have super spreader actions,’ Douglas County Public Health Officer Bob Dannenhoffer said in a statement. 

‘The top of the list for super spreader actions are people who are unwittingly and unconsciously choosing to go to work when they are sick.’ 

They stressed the need for those experiencing symptoms to stay home and follow safety protocols.

Douglas County has a population of about 111,000,  and has so far experienced 1,135 Covid-19 cases resulting in 37 deaths. 

State officials have declared Douglas County to be at ‘extreme risk’ at the present time when it comes to coronavirus. 

The state of Oregon has recorded 107,000 coronavirus cases and more than 1,400 deaths with infections surging since November.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown  recently extended a state-of-emergency order until March 3, 2021 which sees various executive orders allowing restrictions on indoor dining, large gatherings and many businesses to continue.

Oregonians are also supposed to wear masks in public under a statewide order. 

The restrictions have resulted in anti-lockdown protests including one on Monday which saw demonstrators smash door as they tried to force their way into the state capitol. 

The spreading of the coronavirus has been a problem for workplaces across the country. 

Although many offices closed during the early stages of the pandemic leading to many employees working from home for months to curb the spread of the virus, as the pandemic has continues to drag on, some offices reopened which saw the spread increase once again. 

Workplace outbreaks have hit meatpacking plants, warehouses, grocery stores, schools, nursing homes and hospitals. 

Courthouses and city halls have also shut down as cases spread among government employees.
