FANS UPSET OVER ACM AWARDS

FANS UPSET OVER ACM AWARDS

Fans upset over Carrie Underwood, Thomas Rhett’s 2020 ACM Awards entertainer of the year tie


The Academy of Country Music Awards left fans stunned when, for the first time in its history, the evening ended in a tie between Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett for entertainer of the year.

While the award is a hallowed one among country musicians and fans alike, some fans weren’t terribly pleased to see it split between the two crooners.

“Of course they had to make the ACM Awards Entertainer a Tie and make sure a man still won, couldn’t let a well deserving, hard working woman have it this year on her own,” said one viewer on Twitter. “Over this s–t.”

“ACM Awards with a TIE for Entertainer of the Year?! Participation trophy generation at its finest,” stated another. “Next up will be a World Series tie where both teams win! Loser mentality.”

THE NEW iOS 14 REVIEW

iOS 14 transforms your iPhone home screen: How you’ll use it differently now

Widgets, App Library and App Clips bring big changes to your iPhone home screen. Here’s how you’ll use the new features.


Big changes are coming to your iPhone home screen in iOS 14.

Apple This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Your iPhone ($699 at Amazon) home screen has looked and worked pretty much the same way for the last 13 years,

But all that’s set to change now that Apple has released iOS 14.

After you install iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 on a compatible iPhone or iPad,

you’ll have more options and features to personalize your home screen than you’ve ever had with iOS before.

Taking cues from core features Android has had for years, Apple has focused much of the iOS 14 update on making the home screen simpler to organize,

With more customization options, smarter suggestions and leaner, faster app experiences.

The end result is a mobile operating system that does more to get out of your way,

giving you faster, more direct access to the information, products and services you use.

We’re going to take a look at the biggest new home screen layout and organization features available in the new operating system,

As well as how you’ll use them after you install iOS 14 on your device. (If you want to help ensure a smooth update, be sure to take care of these housekeeping tasks before starting the installation.)

THE NEW iOS 14 REVIEW FOR THE SYSTEM UPGRADE

App Library automatically sorts all your iPhone apps into categories and places the most recently and frequently used apps at the top.

Apple

iOS 14 can help you clear your home screen clutter

Unless you stay on top of it, after a while, apps you download start piling up and eventually your home screen begins to sprawl

. App Library cleans that mess up for you — in a roundabout way.

What it is: A home screen page one flick beyond your last home screen page.

App Library lists all of your apps in smartly curated category folders that display the most recently or frequently used apps at the top and all your other apps by type.

How you’ll use it: App Library doesn’t reorganize your home screens for you.

But it does organize all your apps in a new view so you can quickly find and open them without swiping through page on page.

You can also search or scroll by app name.


 

89-YEAR-OLD LOSES HOUSE FOR 6 CENTS

89-YEAR-OLD LOSES HOUSE FOR 6 CENTS

DAUGHTER: WOMAN SUFFERS FROM ALZHEIMER’S ND COULD NOT GRASP THE SITUATION

An 89-year-old New Jersey woman with Alzheimer’s disease nearly lost her home of 50 years because she owed a grand total of six cents in back taxes, according to reports.

Ocean Township officials put Glen Kristi Goldenthal’s home up for sale on Sept. 9,

After the tiny debt she owed on her taxes accrued to more than $300 with interest and administrative costs, WNBC reported.

The woman’s story gained traction after her daughter, Lisa Suhay, took to social media.

Suhay, who lives in Virginia, slammed the city’s lack of imagination for failing to come up with six pennies “in an office full of people” to cover Goldenthal’s debt.

Suhay said she only found out about her mother’s situation after her house was put up for sale.

89-YEAR-OLD LOSES HOUSE FOR 6 CENTS OVERDUE TAXES

“She’s called me dozens of times in the last 24 hours: ‘Is my house gonna be OK?

Do I have to pack?

Where am I gonna go live?'” Suhay told WNBC.

Suhay said her mom received at least one warning call from a tax collector,

But her Alzheimer’s made her forget. Even the tax collector could tell all was not well, Suhay said.

“Apparently the tax collector called her because when I talked to him,

He said he realized there was something wrong, that she didn’t understand,” Suhay said.

“[I said] I’m sorry, you’re selling my mother’s house today because she owes you six cents.

He said yeah, it’s amazing how these things snowball. … I was like, ‘It’s six cents!'”

Suhay said she contacted Ocean Township Mayor Christopher Siciliano, who apologized for the situation.

“Naturally it’s really embarrassing the town would put someone’s home up for sale over six cents,” Siciliano said. “It’s silly.”

Suhay said she paid off her mom’s debt and the house was taken off the market but is still infuriated that it was put up forsale in the first place.

“How many people during a pandemic, or any other time, are being victimized by this greedy, broken system?” Suhay said.

Goldenthal’s near-tragic story has prompted Siciliano to try to fix the state’s tax law that allowed it to happen.

The mayor has reached out to state Sen. Vin Gopal, D-Monmouth,

To discuss thresholds municipalities can place on the amount of delinquent taxes are owed before a sales tax is triggered, the Ashbury Park Press reported.
