Amazon CEO and richest man on the planet Jeff Bezos is throwing some cash at climate change - did I say some cash? I mean $10 billion. Jeff made the announcement in an Instagram post.  Calling climate change “the biggest threat to our planet,” Jeff said he’ll issue grants to individuals, small companies, and others to help combat the problem.

Eminem is also a billionaire now - if you consider views on YouTube. His song “Rap God” just achieved 1 billion views after six years on the platform.  It’s actually Eminem’s third time achieving 1 billion views on YouTube after “Not Afraid” and “Love the Way You Lie” with Rihanna.  This is the clean version that doesn’t have nearly as many views.
 

 

 
I don’t talk a lot about NASCAR for obvious reasons, like some of you are probably wondering what NASCAR is right now. Anyway, the Daytona 500 was this weekend.  On the last lap a driver named Ryan Newman was in the lead, but then his car got bumped and he ended up flipping and crashing and setting on fire. Had to be rushed to the hospital and while he’s in serious condition, doctor say his injuries are not life-threatening.   What I love about this story is that even though he was on his roof and on fire,  Ryan still managed to skid across the finish line, taking ninth place. Never give up, even if you’re on fire.  
 
 
And a viral TikTok video has got a man fired after he took a bath in the kitchen sink of the Wendy's where he worked.  He's unemployed now.
