The Discovery Channel introduced us to "Alaskan Bush People," and for more than 12 seasons, we've been following the Brown family as they rough it in the wilderness. With such a rustic premise, the show has faced ongoing scrutiny for falsifying the remote ways in which they live. In fact, many Alaskan locals have come forward with claims that the family actually stays at a hotel in Hoonah, Alaska, rather than their "Browntown" cabin, as they portray on the show, per Radar Online.

ESPN FPI updates predictions for Boston College's remaining games

The biggest week of Boston College's season so far is here. The Eagles are 3-0 after posting a dominant defensive effort in a 28-3 win over Temple, but Missouri coming to town on Saturday represents a major step up in competition and a major litmus test for a Boston College team that has not yet truly been tested by its competition. Missouri is 2-1 on the season and nearly suffered an upset at the hands of Central Michigan in Week 1, but bounced back the following week to nearly defeat a good Kentucky team on the road.

Mick Jagger’s Younger Brother Chris Jagger Is Grateful He Isn’t as Famous as The Rolling Stones

Fans of The Rolling Stones might not know that Mick Jagger has a younger brother named Chris, who is also a musician.

It’s quite the opposite, actually. Chris enjoys the career he’s had and wouldn’t trade it for a career like Mick’s. He’s glad he isn’t a Rolling Stone.

Can an OSHA Vaccine Mandate Survive Judicial Review?

Last week, President Biden announced his plan to require private employers with 100 or more workers to mandate COVID vaccinations or require workers to be tested weekly. The mechanism to do this is the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”), which is working on an emergency temporary standard (“ETS”). For OSHA to promulgate emergency regulations, it must, according to its website, (1) “determine that workers are in grave danger due to exposure to toxic substances or agents determined to be toxic or physically harmful or to new hazards” and (2) “that an emergency standard is needed to protect them.” As a matter of non-constitutional litigation, one can question whether COVID-19 is a “substance or agent” such as DDT ( the first of the modern synthetic insecticide). A virus is a living thing–not something we typically describe as a “substance or agent.” We’ve been living with COVID-19 for approximately two years. Can OSHA argue this is a “new hazard”? Does COVID-19 really count as a “grave danger” to workers when every worker in America, without cost to the worker, can get the vaccine today at a local clinic, and thus reduce the chances of contracting the virus and ensure that if contracted the case will be relatively mild?
