Nick Viall and Hannah Ann Are Flirting on Instagram Right Now and I! Fully! Stan!

Look, at this point there’s almost no one in Bachelor Nation that Nick Viall hasn’t been linked to, but he’s currently out here getting vaguely flirty with Peter Weber’s ex-girlfriend Hannah Ann Sluss on Instagram and I’m very much here for it.

Because why not, Hannah went ahead and posted some bikini pics to Instagram, and Nick hopped into her comments being all “As far as caption go…’Dear Peter…’ would have been a home run.” Hannah responded that Nick “nailed it” and didn’t seem to hate the suggestion that he should “get on this.” Basically, there was a vibe okay? That! Is! That!

As a reminder, Hannah won Peter’s final rose and a massive engagement ring—but he broke up with her on camera because he couldn’t ~give her his heart~ or something (IDK, honestly trying to block that entire season out). Peter went on to date Madison Prewett and then Kelley Flanagan, while Hannah’s been linked to NFL player Mason Rudolph.

Back in April, Hannah showed up on Off the Vine With Kaitlyn Bristowe, saying she had a “FaceTime date” with someone but that their relationship is “just a nice little quarantine fling.”

Hmmmm, whatever, still think Nick should shoot his shot.

Who Are Jimin From BTS' Parents?

In BTS, he’s one of the main singers and dancers, performing on their recently released album, Map of the Soul: 7. Outside of the K-pop group, he’s the oldest son of one family in South Korea. What did Jimin do before joining BTS? Who are his parents? Here’s what we know about this K-pop idol and what he said about his family.

Jimin is a member of the K-pop group, BTS

As the K-pop group’s resident “prince charming,” Park Jimin, also known by his stage name “Jimin,” is a singer and dancer. He performs sounds with the other six members, in addition to solo songs like “Filter,” “Serendipity,” and “Lie.”

Sometimes he’s goofy, joking around on The Late Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and nicknaming James Corden Papa Mochi. Sometimes he’s sweet and caring towards the other BTS performers. Fans even suggested Jimin should portray Prince Eric in the live-action adaptation of Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

Before he was a member of the award-winning K-pop group, Jimin was still very artistic and creative. He went to school for contemporary dance, even knowing V before the two joining BTS. In the meantime, his parents owned and operated their own restaurant in Korea.

Who are Jimin’s parents?

Aside from his BTS family, Jimin is a supportive family waiting for him back in Korea. Unlike other BTS members, who often post pictures with their family, there aren’t many pictures of Jimin with his parents. However, they’ve reportedly been very supportive of his journey with BTS.

Amino Apps reports, Jimin is the oldest son in his family. The singer-dancer has one younger brother, named Park Jihyun. It’s unclear how much older Jimin is, but he’s considered a member of the “maknae line” in BTS, meaning he’s one of the younger members.

Jimin mentioned his parents during one interview

Fans of BTS aren’t the only ones who expressed concern over Jimin’s weight. According to Amino Apps, and one translation, Jimin said, “I see my face every day so I just think ‘Did my face change a bit?’ but people around me tell me that I’ve lost a lot of weight.”

“My parents worry about me a lot because they only see me a few times a year and ask me if I’m eating properly,” he continued. “I personally feel that I’ve become more handsome after dieting when…. ARMY take nice pictures of me?”

Jimin has, in fact, been pretty open about his unhealthy eating habits and his past extreme dieting. He even shared, according to the website Koreaboo, that he lost consciousness during rehearsals from not eating. However, with the support of the other members and the BTS ARMY, he now practices healthy eating and exercise habits.

Fans can find Jimin on social media platforms like Weverse and Twitter, or chatting with viewers during live streams. Music by BTS, including their recently released album, Map of the Soul: 7, is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.

BDG Readers Are Craving Content For Comfort Amid The Coronavirus Pandemic

This article was written by Bustle Trends Group.

Since it launched in 2013, Bustle Digital Group (BDG) has held a clear editorial mission: uplift, inform, and inspire. And that’s just what we’ve done.

Over the last seven years, BDG has grown into a portfolio of 10 brands, each with their own personality. Bustle’s mission has always underpinned our content, though. Whether a BDG site is covering astrology, dating, fashion, beauty, gaming, or a health pandemic like the one we face today, our content has been infused with the same curiosity and fun that readers crave.

In our newly launched BDG Connects webinar series, we spoke with editorial leadership about the content BDG readers are hungry for during this fraught time.

Across all our properties, one central theme emerged. As Josh Topolsky, the editor-in-chief of BDG’s Culture and Innovation Portfolio put it, “People are asking, ‘how do I live through this moment better? … Stories that did well pre-corona are exploding now because people have time to go deeper. It’s like comfort food.”

Comfort food is something that BDG knows well. The notion that our content, which is following the same through lines it did pre- pandemic, is analogous to comfort food is exactly what we want to achieve. With so much change going on in the world right now, BDG is serving as a source of warm, feel-good stability and guidance.

We’re seeing this in the data the Bustle Trends Group has been collecting over the last several weeks, too. Our readers are recreating the life they had before COVID-19 as best they can. Two thirds told us that they are considering purchasing home fitness equipment or large electronics to simulate the gym experience or going to the movies, for instance. Nearly 50% are streaming workouts to keep up their routines and 46% are creating dedicated office spaces in their living rooms. Our readers aren’t ready for their routines to die.

They’re also picking up new skills to weather this time at home. With much of the country shutdown, 84% of our readers are finding themselves hitting the kitchen more often than ever before to cook up a meal and 49% even say they are eating more comfort foods. Another 52% told us that they’re cleaning more.

Despite the doom and gloom of the news cycle, BDG readers see this period in our lives as temporary. "Home for now, not forever" was a recurring theme. To that end, 88% told us that they don’t think stay-at-home orders will last more than 12 weeks. What are they itching to do after lockdown? Gather with family and friends, get back to work and school, and have a social routine were the top three responses.

“We are taking this time to get in touch with the things we love most — think of it as escapism,” BDG’s fashion director Tiffany Reid added. Our content is helping our readers facilitate a closer relationship with themselves while they’re at home. We can take them anywhere from the comfort of their routines, albeit slightly altered due to the circumstances.

No one really knows when we can freely resume our pre-pandemic lives. For the time being, we suggest settling in and doing more of what brings you joy. Cultural or actual comfort food is what’s going to get us all through this tough time. Whether your jam is mac and cheese or perfecting your knowledge of every Bachelor contestant, get cozy and unapologetically dig in.

Seven in 10 are put off investing money because of financial jargon

SEVEN in 10 Brits are put off investing money because of the financial lingo.

However, a study of 2,000 adults found many actually know more than they give themselves credit for.

When quizzed on the meaning of key investment terms such as "dividend", "FTSE 100" and "equity", respondents gave the correct answer more than 70 per cent of the time, on average.

And the study, by investment firm eToro found many are aware of more technical terms, with four in five correctly identifying Bitcoin as a form of digital currency.

Iqbal V. Gandham, UK managing director of eToro, said: “Most people think investing is just something that the super-rich or people who wear pin-stripe suits do.

"But that couldn’t be further from the truth.

“Our research shows that while many people say they are initially put off by the complicated terms used in the investment industry, lots of us already know way more than we think we do.

"It’s like anything new, whether it’s VAT or VAR in football, people just need a little bit of time and confidence to understand the terms involved."

The study found others are put off investing because they feel it's too complicated or is only suited to those who work in financial services.

And more than a quarter believe investing is just for bankers or the-super rich.

A further one in four believe they do not dress smartly enough to fit the profile of a typical investor.

However, a third would be willing to invest if they had the help of an expert.

Gandham said: “An investment doesn’t need to be a large amount of money – it could be the equivalent of a trip to the cinema, or a takeaway – and it’s important to remember it’s never too late to start.

“And the great thing is, there are so many amazing – and free – resources on the internet, it has never been easier to plug gaps in our knowledge.

“The days of investing being the preserve of the upper echelons are over.

“eToro is on a mission to get Britain investing.

“The industry needs to be better at communicating to people how they can access the market, either by doing it for themselves or copying others, using social investing.”

Coronation Street bosses are ‘panicking’ about running out of episodes during lockdown, says Beverley Callard – The Sun

CORONATION Street fans were gutted when it was announced the ITV soap would be airing just three days a week due to the current lockdown situation.

Due to the global coronavirus pandemic shooting was forced to suspend, but it seems Corrie's stars are getting used to seeing themselves on television less and less.

⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates

Speaking on Radio 5 Live, Jennie McAlpine and Beverley Callard revealed how they're adjusting to the current situation.

Jennie, who plays Fiz Brown in the soap, said: "I keep putting it on at half eight, but then I think, 'Oh no, Corrie's not on'.
"They've limited our Corrie output now, so there's only three on instead of six."

She continued: "I know people might be missing those three episodes but at least it means we've got a bit more time.
"I know our bosses are working really hard every day assessing the situation."

Beverley, who plays Liz McDonald then chimed in: "And they're panicking like mad aren't they? But, of course, you can't not.
"Even if it does come to an end and we run out of episodes, the writers will be going mad, they'll be excited to create new storylines and everything.
"Because we've got a massive team of writers, so they'll keep it going," she added.

Their comments come after co-star Andy Whyment claimed Coronation Street will go off air if it can’t resume filming by June.

Speaking on the United Podcast, the Kirk Sutherland actor said: "I think we've got until the beginning of July in the can.

"So we need to get back hopefully by the middle of June with a bit of luck, otherwise it's going to go off air.

"We've cut down from six episodes a week to three episodes a week, obviously to stay, but hopefully we'll get back.

"A lot of the airlines have announced they're going to start flying again mid-June, so I'm presuming if that's going to happen then hopefully we should be able to get back to work with a bit of luck, so fingers crossed."

Coronation Street came to a halt last month after filming was suspended to ensure the safety of the cast and crew.

Hair dye and clippers are the new coronavirus panic buys

Toilet paper and hand sanitizer are so last month.

When it comes to panic buying during the coronavirus outbreak, people are going back to their roots.

Hair dye is flying off the shelves, along with hair clippers, as graying, shaggy Americans — desperate to maintain their manes — turn to DIY measures.

“People are starting to need a haircut,” Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said on NBC’s “Today” show. “You see more beard trimmers and hair color and things like that. You can definitely see that as people have stayed home, their focus shifted. It’s interesting to watch the dynamic play out.”

Sales of hair clippers have jumped a whopping 166% from a year ago, and hair-coloring products have climbed 23%, Nielsen figures show.

At-home styling is the product of many salons nationwide being forced to close because of lockdown restrictions. Closing down has put shop owners in a financial squeeze, but

“I think this too shall pass, and as soon as we can open our doors and know that it is safe, business will get back to normal [especially] with people with roots or folks in need of correcting what they did at home by themselves,” Hazan told Glamour.

How Jewish Millennials Are Bringing Passover Seders To Zoom

About this time last year, Julia Logan took an intro to Judaism class at her local synagogue. The group of seven people organized a Passover seder together, reading from a social justice-rooted Haggadah. This year, Logan says, five from that original group will celebrate Passover on Zoom.

Government mandates to stay at home to fight the spread of coronavirus have impacted nearly every facet of our lives, from jobs, to relationships, to weddings, to funerals. But Passover stops for no virus. The holiday, which marks the freeing of the Israelites from slavery after a series of 10 plagues, is traditionally celebrated at home with family and sometimes close friends — think, bringing your bestie home for Thanksgiving. There’s a (long!) reading from a prayer book, the Haggadah, a meal rich with literal and figurative schmaltz, and the evening culminates in a hunt for a hunk of matzah. It’s a very active, IRL kind of celebration.

Jewish Millennials who aren’t currently social distancing with their families — or whose families don’t always observe Passover — are getting creative with how they’re celebrating the holiday, which starts the evening of April 8.

Logan is now a field manager for OneTable, an organization that provides resources to people in their 20s and 30s who want to observe Shabbat. This year, over 400 people have signed up through the platform to host virtual seders this year across 45 cities, according to Al Rosenberg, OneTable’s Director of Strategy & Communications. OneTable’s sister site, Seder2020, has 200 dinners planned.

Rosenberg says that celebrating Passover online can give people space to determine what their “adult version of Judaism looks like,” including “what rituals you want in your life and what you want your relationship to Judaism, spirituality, or wellness to look like on a larger scale.” They add, “The beauty of Passover is that there’s multiple nights,” so you can plan multiple celebrations with whoever you like, however you like.

Emily, 24, will be celebrating with her family over Zoom, with her uncle “hosting.” She says they haven’t really worked through the kinks of how they’ll take turns reading the Haggadah, since she doesn’t have one at her apartment. “As for the Afikoman,” the aforementioned hunk of matzah, she says, “my family is pretty lame at hiding it (they put it in the same spot for like five years in a row),” so she’s not sure how that’ll shake out on a video chat. “I guess the payment will have to come in the form of Venmo this year.”

Miriam, 26, is not down to get back on Zoom after full days of videoconference meetings. “When it comes to social interaction via digital platform, I don’t have anything else to give, which is unfortunate because I love Passover,” she says. She had been planning to go to her best friend’s family’s seder, and an elderly client of hers had also invited her to join her family’s celebration in Westchester. ”The idea of kicking back and enjoying this very special dinner on a digital platform with people just doesn’t seem like it would deliver the same effect as it would normally.” Still, she says she might do a small FaceTime with her two best friends, who are currently based in Mexico City and Israel. “That is what I consider to be my Jewish community,” she says.

As Logan puts it, you can decide to throw together a virtual seder last-minute — it’s not like you need a headcount for the brisket. If you do decide to host, send out the logistics — the Zoom dial-in, the link or .PDF of the Haggadah — in an email in advance to minimize people texting you questions. Logan recommends assigning one person the role of the Afikoman, Clue-style, and having everyone guess who that person is, rather than physically hiding it. (“Have them make Matzah-infused jokes” she says.) After the meal, since you can’t fake yawn and say you need to get home, Logan suggests closing the night by asking each guest to say one thing they’re grateful for — or, alternatively, breaking into a Prince of Egypt-themed dance party. “Maybe the Whitney Houston & Mariah Carey version of the song.”

Even if a digital Passover won’t be the same as a dinner, both Emily and Miriam affirmed the value of staying home and marking the holiday in your own way.

“Being together might feel great in the moment, but that would not last longer than a few hours,” Emily says. “The possibility of passing germs (especially to my grandmother) would be a big mistake.”

“In order to feel more comfortable with the way events are playing out … you need to have those little wins,” like doing what you’re comfortable with on Passover, says Miriam. “That on its own would make me feel like I’ve recharged my Judaism.”

Hand-Held Steamers Are the Easy Way to Keep Clothes Fresh & Wrinkle-Free

There are lots of reasons to break out a hand-held steamer: They’re less bulky (and lighter!) than a traditional steamer, and can be less damaging to clothes than an iron. They can be used on fabrics that can’t typically be ironed, like synthetics or tulle. And they’re a great way to freshen up clothing between washes or trips to the dry cleaner. Even better: Many models are small enough and portable enough and take with you when you travel.

So go ahead — keep your iron stashed in the linen closet and try a handheld steamer instead. Here are five models we recommend.

1. Magictec Travel Garment Steamer

The Magictec Travel Garment Steamer is not only compact, but also heats up quickly for continuous, powerful steam. It also has a nine-foot cord for mobility, a design that helps minimize spills and sputtering. Five vents in the nozzle keep the steam concentrated and directional. 

2. Polardo Portable Hand Held Steamer

While most handheld steamers are small and powerful, the design of the Polardo Portable Hand Held Steamer is especially sleek, making it even easier to pack. The shape is less stable on a tabletop, but the design allows it to be held or pointed at any angle without spilling. A switch also allows you to turn off continuous steam — which is good if you want to pause between steaming garments. It even allows for horizontal steaming on an ironing board.

3. BEAUTURAL 1200-Watt Steamer for Clothes

With a comfortable grip and a spill-and sputter-proof pump design, this steamer can be used at any angle, including horizontal. When held, the steam can be controlled by a trigger. Because it doesn’t have a continuous flow, you can pause between steaming jobs without wasting water. It also heats up extremely fast — in about 30 seconds. Attachments also allow you to steam pleats as well as remove lint and steam furniture.

4. Rowenta 2 in 1 Handheld Fabric Steamer and Steam Iron

If you anticipate needing to iron and steam clothes on a trip, this will take care of both jobs. A comfortable handle lets you hold the iron vertically as you steam clothes without needing an ironing board. However, you can still use it as an iron for bigger jobs. Like regular steam irons, you can set it on variable temperatures depending on your fabric. And as an added bonus, the larger reservoir allows for up to 15 minutes of continuous steam.

Are hairdressers open today or will they be closed due to coronavirus? – The Sun

THE coronavirus pandemic has forced restaurants, pubs and gyms to close, but hair and beauty salons can still stay open.

Although yesterday, an MP warned that hair salons must be added to the lockdown list and close their doors to stop the deadly bug from spreading.

⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates

The demand came as every pub, restaurant and nightclub was ordered to close by Boris Johnson on Friday evening.

Cinemas, theatres and betting shops were also ordered to close to reduce the risks of mass gatherings.

The move follows a total lockdown across European countries despite it going against what the PM described as “the freedom-loving instincts” of the British people.

So are hairdressers open today or have they shut their doors? We asked some of the major chains.

Are hairdressers open today?

If you're planning to cut your hair in the coming days or weeks, it's worth checking with your salon directly if it's still open as some have already shut their doors.

This applies both to independent salons and bigger chains.

For example, Rush Hair and Beauty, which has more than 90 salons across the UK, has temporarily closed its branches.

Customers can still get in touch by calling 020 3984 0330 between 9am and 8pm, Monday to Friday.

Meanwhile, Headmasters is closing its 56 salons across London and Surrey at 6pm today until further notice, it told The Sun.

We've also asked Toni & Guy as well as Regis Salons, the owner of Supercuts, about their plans but we haven't heard back yet.

The National Hair & Beauty Federation (NHBF), a trade association for hairdressing, barbering and beauty salon owners, is calling on the government to include salons and barbershops to be added to the list of business that must close.

It said in a statement yesterday: "This is not a decision we have taken lightly and we fully understand how worried everyone in our industry is at the moment.

"Our priority is to protect our industry, colleagues, business owners, employees and clients from the further spread of the COVID-19 virus.

"Some salons and barbershops have already taken the decision to close, and we believe that this is the right decision.

"Stylists, therapists and barbers are inevitably in close contact with a wide range of clients which means they cannot follow the government’s social distancing guidelines."

Which brands are shutting up shop

HERE is the list of all the retailers that have said they are closing their doors due to coronavirus.

  • Boden – closing all stores
  • Burton – closing all stores
  • Calvin Klein – closing all stores
  • Clarks – closing all stores
  • Costa – closing all stores but will try to keep shops in hospitals open
  • Debenhams – closing all stores
  • Dorothy Perkins – closing all stores
  • Evans – closing all stores
  • Fenwick – closing all stores
  • H&M – closing all stores
  • HMV – closing all stores
  • IKEA – closing all stores
  • John Lewis – closing all stores
  • McDonald's – closing all stores
  • Miss Selfridge – closing all stores
  • Nando's – closing all stores
  • Oxfam – closing all stores
  • Patisserie Valerie – closing all stores
  • Primark – closing all stores
  • Starbucks – closing all stores
  • Sweaty Betty – closing all stores
  • The Entertainer – closing all stores
  • Timpson – closing all stores
  • TK Maxx – closing all stores
  • Topshop – closing all stores
  • Wallis – closing all stores

On Friday, the Chancellor revealed that the government will pay up to 80 per cent of wages – or up to £2,500 a month – for people who lose income due to the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, ministers are working “around the clock” to draw up an emergency package of measures to help Britain’s self-employed workers.

We've made a round-up of today's opening hours of the UK's supermarkets.
