What about your friends, will they stand their ground,
Will they let you down again?
What about your friends, are they gonna be lowdown, 
Will they ever be around,
Or will they turn their backs on you?   

“What about your friends” written by Dallas Austin and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez (1992)

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: It’s a Gas, Gas, Gas


By Brian Moylan/Venture.com

Vanderpump rules  fans recently got to see Lisa Vanderpump three sheets to the wind at the opening of Tom Tom. This week we got to see her getting silly on laughing gas while going to get some face work done with Kyle. There is nothing as fun as watching Lisa Vanderpump, who is stiffer than a gluten-free snack chip, get messed up and live a little bit. Here she’s taking huge hits of gas like the caterpillar on a hookah in an Alice in Wonderlandcartoon and then giggling like a member of Jackass when someone else farts. (Jackass does Alice in Wonderland is a movie I would definitely watch.)

But I worry about Lisa on that much gas at the doctor’s office. First of all, she’s offering Kyle to do some medically-approved whippets with her, which, let’s be honest, could get this doctor’s license revoked if people are just handing out hits all willy nilly. Secondly, she’s laughing and squirming around in her seat while the dermatologist injects wasp bites of filler into her neck so it’s not as wrinkly and saggy. Does she really want to be sliding in her seat with a syringe that close to her major arteries?

A wasted Lisa is really the most exciting thing to happen on this episode. While last week started off with a bang, this week we’re back to an episode of Rich Women Doing Things. Tonight, the rich women avoid rattlesnakes while on a walk through a canyon, they forget just how many houses they have, and they talk about how their alopecia-ridden Pomeranians needed to get pacemakers. It’s not that big of a week for the rich women.

Bravo Housewives Round Up

#RHOBH Not sure the Hype surrounding Beverley Hills was worth it. Lisa Vanderpump’s brother committed suicide. We see an uncharacteristically emotional Vanderpump.

Binge Worthy and On

What a difference a season makes. Last season #RHONJ was painfully boring. After dropping Siggy and adding a couple of new Housewives. New Jersey has become the most entertaining of all the Housewives. The Reunion begins this week. #RHONJ is binge worthy. Treat yourself and watch the episodes before the reunion. In last weeks finale, the war between Danielle and every body (except Teresa) continued. Danielle’s husband, Marty, talked shit about Margaret again to her hubby Joe. I could tell you, but its more fun to see it.

So Far, Margaret Joseph’s is Bravo Housewives MVP for 2019

Road Rage “Crazy”


I’m hooked on those you tube Road Rage Videos. Most of the images are caught on dash cam. The details on some of these are extremely sharp with some of the cameras allowing the driver to capture clear images of the license plates .

What I find fascinating is a lot of the owners of these dash cams are often in the wrong. Giving chase, blocking the other vehicles and putting and  themselves and their passengers in harms way.

The testosterone level is often beyond a million plus. With men and women engaging in reckless violent behavior.    Most acts are unintentional, its a momentary oops, with the driver in the other car overreacting.  One man attacked the car behind him with a baseball bat breaking the windows with a family inside the car BECAUSE he believed the car behind him was following him was following to closely in a 15 mph zone.

 

My advice is to ignore your ego. Turn around and drive in another direction. If they follow you ,call the police. If the traffic comes to a stop, stay in you car. Do not speak. We don’t know his state of mind of if he is carrying any weapons. At the end of the day. Your ego will be fine and you will live another day

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season Premiere Recap: Vanderpump and Dump


   

By: Brian Moylan/Vulture.com 

The women of Beverly Hills are wasting no time this season. None at all. After several lackluster years where I had to rename the show Rich Women Doing Things, the rich women come right out of the gate doing a lot of things, but mostly yelling at each other and wearing enough yoga pants to cover all of the targeted Fabletics ads in your Instagram feed.

The very first seconds of this season show an explosive fight between Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, and Lisa’s husband, a 90-year-old scarecrow that was once given a name but has since forgotten it. We don’t get much substance behind the fight, other than the fact that Kyle thinks that Lisa did something that Lisa claims she didn’t do.

At one point, Kyle says to her, “Maybe you care more about your image than you do your friendships.” Whatever the specifics of the matter, this seems to be the general criticism of Lisa that has been lobbed against her by various people over the years, including Brandi Glanville (say her name three times and she shall appear) during the “bring the tabloids on vacation” scandal, Lisa Rinna with that whole Munchausen’s thing, and Dorit last season when Lisa got mad at her and Kyle and stormed out of a restaurant.

Norway universities criticized for overuse of English

The Language Council of Norway (Språkrådet) says it is concerned about the amount of English used in courses at Norwegian universities and colleges.

 

A number of classes at higher education institutions across the country are taught entirely in English, reports broadcaster NRK.

The council said that using too much English could be damaging both during studies and for life after them.

“We are particularly concerned for new students who find that almost their entire program is in English. We are not convinced about the learning benefits, as it’s not certain all students are good enough at English,” Ole Våge said to NRK.

“It is a big problem if only English is used in education. The vast majority of people will be working in the Norwegian labor market afterwards,” he continued.

Våge said that classes taught in English were beneficial but should not be prioritized at the expense of Norwegian.

“It is completely natural to use both Norwegian and English. But we have seen that some classes are using solely English reading material,” he said.

Norwegian students themselves are less critical about the amount of English used in studies, according to NRK’s report.

Mats Johansen Beldo of the Norwegian Student Organization said that English was not excessively used at universities and colleges in the Scandinavian country.

“No, we students don’t think it’s a problem. Books in English are good and provide the academic input we need,” he told the broadcaster.

University of Oslo Deputy Rector Gro Bjørnerud Mo said the Norwegian was the primary language of classes at the university, and that the amount of English actually used in classes varies between programs

“We monitor closely language policies and the balance between English and other languages in our course catalog,” she said.
