Production assistants who worked on blockbuster films such as 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' who were in charge of parking are now suing Paramount Pictures and other associated production companies. 

The suit claims that they were not allowed to leave their assigned locations, which led them to start keeping "bottles and buckets" in their vehicles for any inevitable bathroom breaks. 

On top of that, they claim that in cold weather they had to leave their cars running continuously but were never compensated for it.  And they had to work 60-100 hours a week regularly while being paid a flat rate of $150 a day without overtime. They were also not given food on set during their 12-hour-on-average days. 

The suit is an attempt by the PAs to get compensation for such poor working conditions.

Author J.K. Rowling is known for her scathing quips toward people who say things that are sexist, racist, homophobic or generally awful. Also she wrote the very, very famous Harry Potter Series.  

This time she tweeted back to a Donald Trump spokeswoman who made a zenophobic remark regarding Americans born outside the U.S. who are (or would like to be) leaders of the country. 

Ouch, Katrina Pierson. You need a freezing spell for that burn?

Every member of the cast of friends, except Matthew Perry who was in London performing a play, gathered together to take a picture with the cast of The Big Bang Theory.  This reunion is not a reboot, or even a crossover, just a picture snapped by Kaley Cuoco of Big Bang fame during the filming of a TV special honoring Jim Burrows.  

The TV special will air in February and feature casts from many of the biggest TV Shows that Jim Burrows directed or produced throughout his career such as Will & Grace, Cheers and obviously, Friends and The Big Bang Theory.

Sneaker waves are common on the Oregon coast and they really can sneak up on you, if you're not careful. These unpredictable waves often happen when other waves bounce off complex terrain on the coast and create conditions for one big, dangerous wave. This is how the Oregon Parks Department describes sneaker waves:

They´re called sneaker waves because they appear without warning, often surging high up on the beach with deadly force, and are impossible to predict. Sneaker waves also carry a large amount of sand that can saturate your clothes, weighing you down and making escape difficult if not impossible.
 
How to play it safe: Never turn your back on the ocean.

"Never turn your back on the ocean." Solid advice.
