WITH WARMER WEATHER and easing of COVID restrictions, especially if you’re vaccinated, small gatherings can be sparked with excitement with Baby Fire Pits. 10 inches tall, Baby Fire Pits are the perfect size for coffee tables or apartment patios and are designed to be used with an odorless, smokeless, and nontoxic gel fuel for mess-free and hassle-free enjoyment.

They make gorgeous accent pieces for tabletops, patios, mantels, or campsites. They’re mess free. Each one is hand-crafted in Colorado Springs from copper and steel and therefore one of a kind due to the beautiful patina of the copper. They measures in at 10” tall with a 6” diameter and includes one can of Echo Valley gel fuel.

MULANEY’S WIFE Ana Marie Tendler checked into rehab after learning about husband John Mulaney’s infidelity. Page Six: Tendler also went to rehab around the same time late last year, but for emotional reasons, sources say, adding that she suffered because of his alleged infidelity. Gossip columnist AJ Benza first revealed on his podcast, “Fame, Ain’t It A Bitch,” that artist Tendler went into therapy at Silver Hill in Connecticut after her estranged husband of six years Mulaney went into rehab for 60 days for alcohol and drug addiction last December. A source said, “Anna Marie was in rehab at Silver Hill for [emotional]… and eating disorders.”

But the source continued that despite claims on Benza’s podcast, Tender did not talk openly about her husband’s issues. The source added, “She didn’t talk at all about that, we were all on our own journey of recovery. But it is clear she suffered during their marriage.” Tendler is out of rehab and is doing better, we’re told, and focusing on her art.

Page Six exclusively revealed last week that former “SNL” writer Mulaney had asked Tendler for a divorce in February after he left rehab. She said in a statement, “I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.”

NOSE FOR ARSON People Magazine: After leaving service dog training because he was too distracted by scents, Sheldon the Labrador retriever/golden retriever mix became an arson detection dog with Texas’ Saginaw Fire Department. Several years ago, the Labrador retriever/golden retriever mix started service dog training with Paws With A Cause in Wayland, Michigan, but “flunked out” for being too distractable, per State Farm. Sheldon specifically had a strong drive to find things by sniffing them out, which prevented him from learning his service dog training tasks.

Shortly after leaving the service dog school, Sheldon learned to turn his need to use his nose into a beneficial quality. The sharp-sniffing pooch was taken in by the State Farm Arson Dog Program, where he quickly excelled at sniffing out the accelerants and fuel used in arson fires.

In 2019, Sheldon was placed with Lieutenant John Tadlock of the Saginaw Fire Department in Saginaw, Texas, as the department’s first accelerant detection canine. The pair formed an instant connection in their first days of training together, a spark that has grown into a special friendship.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 4

Variety: Raises the question again, this time with Captain America’s shield in John Walker’s (Wyatt Russell) hands. But this is a post-Blip, post-Steve Rogers world — one without the original Cap’s lofty moral absolutism. And what Walker chooses to do with the shield in the last few minutes of this week’s installation runs counter to everything we’ve been conditioned to think that circle of vibranium stands for.

FOUR YEARS into his transition: that a gift it has been, growing into myself over the last four years. Gone are the days of voice updates and monthly changes, replaced with conversations surrounding life and relationships as a queer trans person. Happy to be building a life i’m proud of and always looking forward for what’s to come. ❤️

GRAND FOSSIL FUEL FINALE The New York Times: Nations around the world would need to immediately stop approving new coal-fired power plants and new oil and gas fields and quickly phase out gasoline-powered vehicles if they want to avert the most catastrophic effects of climate change, the world’s leading energy agency said Tuesday.

In a sweeping new report, the International Energy Agency issued a detailed road map of what it would take for the world’s nations to slash carbon dioxide emissions to net zero by 2050. That would very likely keep the average global temperature from increasing 1.5 Celsius above preindustrial levels — the threshold beyond which scientists say the Earth faces irreversible damage. “The sheer magnitude of changes needed to get to net zero emissions by 2050 is still not fully understood by many governments and investors,” Fatih Birol, the agency’s executive director, said in an interview.

Net zero emissions doesn’t mean countries would stop emitting carbon dioxide altogether. Instead, they would need to sharply reduce most of the carbon dioxide generated by power plants, factories and vehicles. Any emissions that could not be fully erased would be offset, such as by forests or artificial technologies that can pull carbon dioxide directly out of the atmosphere.

HEAD TO HEAD Reddit versus Discord,

SHINE by Olly Alexander & Years and Years.

I remember us alone / Waiting for the light to go / Don’t you feel that hunger
I’ve got, so many secrets to show / When I saw you on that stage / I shiver with the look you gave
Don’t you hear that rhythm, can you / Show me how we can escape / I was biting my tongue
I was trying to hide / (Ooh oh oh oh, ooh oh oh ooh) / I’ll forget what I’ve done
I’ll be redefined / It’s shaking the sky / And I’m following lightning
I’ll recover if you keep me alive / Don’t leave me behind / Can you see me I’m shining
And it’s you that I’ve been waiting to find / I’m holding it all tonight / I’m folding it all tonight
You know that you make it shine / And it’s you that I’ve been waiting to find /I’m holding it all tonight
I’m folding it all tonight / You know that you make it shine
It’s you that I’ve been waiting…
