2. Why NFL star sent back his sons’ participation trophies
American football linebacker James Harrison sparked online discussion when he announced that he would return his sons’ participation trophies because he wants them to earn “real trophies” instead. On Saturday, he posted a photo of his sons’ trophies that they received for participating in athletics and captioned it: “I’m sorry I’m not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I’m not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best… cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better… not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy. #harrisonfamilyvalues” (buzzfeed.com)
3. Disneyland to expand with Toy Story Land
The Happiest Place To Be is set to get bigger and bigger. Disney announced at the D23 conference on Saturday that it will include a new Toy Story Land at Disney Hollywood Studios in Florida. The new theme-park experience will have oversized toys that’ll make visitors think that they’ve been shrunk to the size of Woody and Buzz Lightyear, and will feature two new theme rides. Toy Story Land will occupy 11 acres of land that Disney just acquired. (huffingtonpost.com)
4. Rachel Bilson’s daughter’s Instagram debut
Well, sort of. The “Heart of Dixie” actress posted the first photo of her daughter Briar Rose nine months after she gave birth to her. Too bad the Instagram photo only shows on-off partner actor Hayden Christensen blowing bubbles as Briar Rose looks on—with her heart turned back on the camera. Her hand resting on her father’s lap is still visible, and it’s easy to tell she’s a cutie nonetheless. (people.com)
5. Take it easy at work or lifting heavy stuff, if you want to get pregnant
Women who work over 40 hours a week or routinely lifts heavy loads may take longer to get pregnant than those women who don’t, according to a new U.S. study. Those who work over 40 hours a week took 20 percent longer to get pregnant than women who work 21 to 40 hours a week. Lifting 25-pound loads several times a day also delays pregnancy by about 50 percent. Generally, don’t exhaust yourself if you’re trying to conceive. Relax.
