1. Watch: Scarlet Snow reading the latest news is just the cutest
And it's also what you need right now. "I’m guessing that by now you already know that the US has a new president. If not, let me read the news to you. With feelings," read the caption of the video posted on the little girl's Instagram account. Scarlet Snow's attempt to read the headlines of a newspaper daily is bringing good vibes to everyone. The same video was posted on mom Vicki Belo's Instagram account with the caption, "You're right @scarletsnowbelo the news is gibberish because most of it is bad." But Scarlet Snow's reading skills are definitely on point. She's started learning how to read with dad Hayden Kho. "This looks hard but with practice I'm sure this will become easy. Pretty soon I'll be able to read all your comments!" the caption to a post last August read. (abs-cbn.com)

On her blog, the new mom confesses, "To be honest, I am so tempted to just pump. But I know that nothing beats the benefits of direct feeding, and because my work is mostly from home, I have the privilege to do direct feeding as often as possible. With all the pain, frustration, and crying episodes in between, I decide to stick with the plan." She also shared what helps her continue to soldier on and breastfeed her two-week-old son Pablo. "I don’t think I’ll survive without my nursing area. It may sound like I’m overacting (I mean, so many moms breastfeed without this!), but so far, it’s the only spot where both my baby and I find solace and comfort during his feeding," she says. No matter how difficult it is, Baby Pablo's satisfied smile after feeding takes it all away, said Paula.

For the first time, a Disney Park ride will feature a story based in Hong Kong, the city Tony Stark chose as the Asia Headquarters of Stark Industries. With the Iron Man Experience, guests will be able to soar through the Hong Kong skies alongside Iron Man and battle the evil forces of Hydra in a multi-sensory immersive motion experience. The new ride-through attraction took over three years to design and create, complete with flight simulators, 3-D projection, surround sound and other special effects. There will also be a range of Iron Man-themed experiences leading up to the official opening of the Stark Expo. Fans will also get to try on Iron Man’s armor suit and test its functions via interactive motion-sensing technology. Disney Parks’ first Marvel-themed ride, Iron Man Experience will open at Hong Kong Disneyland on January 11, 2017.

Raven Symoné is all set to reprise her role and produce the spinoff, where her character is now a divorced mom of two. Raven's daughter Nia, a middle school girl who's bold and confident, has inherited her mom's supernatural ability to see glimpses of the future. Her younger brother Booker won't do something bad unless he's tricked into it, but will stand up for himself once he realizes what's really happening. That’s So Raven aired for five years from 2003 to 2007, and was followed by a sequel Cory in The House, which centered on Raven’s brother. This new spinoff has no official title yet, as production will only start early next year, but Raven Symoné is calling it That's So Raven 2. (eonline.com)
5. Brad Pitt cleared of child abuse; custody agreement with Angelina Jolie reached
Brad Pitt has been cleared in the child abuse investigation that allegedly involved him and eldest son Maddox while on board a private plane on September 14, a day before Angelina Jolie filed for divorce and asked for sole physical custody of their six kids. Last week, Brad filed his response and asked for joint physical custody. While many thought the soon-to-be ex husband and wife would have a long custody battle, the recent statement issued by Angelina's rep said they have reached an agreement. "The six children will stay in their mother’s custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father. This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children’s best interest." (eonline.com)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
