$1.99 HULU For College Kids

Hulu – has introduced a special reduced-rate plan for U.S. college students priced at $1.99 per month. That’s a 67% discount off the regular $5.99 price.

Moreover, the belief is that the promo will develop a base of younger Hulu customers — who will then keep the service long after they graduate.

Olympic Gold Medalist’s Home Burned Down After She Couldn’t Smell Smoke Due To COVID Side Effects

Daria Valeryevna Shkurikhina is a Russian group rhythmic gymnast. Like Will Ferrell in ‘Old School’  She had this to say about the fire:

“Soon after lighting the candle, I saw smoke creeping across the ceiling, already in the kitchen,” she said, according to the outlet. “I still cannot smell after suffering from COVID-19.”

Fortunately, a neighbor called the fire department and she was able to escape the raging inferno, which destroyed her apartment and could also have ravaged her neighborhood.
“Acrid smoke” prevented Shkurikhina from reaching her cat, but a firefighter who arrived minutes later saved the animal and her chinchilla, Guch, which suffered a burned tail, East2West reported.

“I understand that I have put people in danger. Yes, I understand that I am to blame,” she said. “An unpleasant situation happened in my life, but everyone is alive, and this is the main thing. I am still in a state of shock.”
“I lit a candle and went to the kitchen. I now understand that leaving an open fire unattended is very stupid, but nothing can be changed,” she said, adding that “it can happen to anyone.”
