A mom-of-16 has gone viral after sharing what their mad and all-over-the-place morning routine looks like.

Those with kids know how frustrating the start of the day can get – even with just one child leaving the house in the morning seems like an impossible mission.

So it’s safe to say that for parents, Tiffany and Benji Nelson, mornings with their huge bunch are a nightmare.

The couple is mom and dad to 16 children: Kenn, 24, Kass, 22, Bridger, 22, JourNee, 23, Trey, 20, Jaine, 19, LiLee, 15, SaiDee, 14, NayVee, 13, Luke, 12, PaisLee, ten, DeLayNee, ten, PresLee, eight, ElleCee, eight, Beckham, six, Ledger, two.

The family, from the US, has become a favorite for many on social media, with more than a whopping 1. 34 million subscribers on their YouTube channel, Not Enough Nelsons.

Tiffany and Benji regularly share glimpses into their daily life, and this time the mom-of-16 shared what mornings look like in the Nelson household.

As the alarm went off at 6:40 am, Tiffany said: ”Last night flew by and let me just tell you – we did not get a relaxing sleep.

”But I’m gonna go wake up kids and hopefully this can all be okay.

”But I have way less time than I normally have so wish me luck.”

At the start of the viral video, the mom revealed that she keeps all of her kids’ mobile phones in a dedicated charging area in her closet.

”I just think it’s best to not have their phones in their room really at night.

”They do have an alarm clock in their room to wake them up.”

With roughly 15 to 20 minutes left before they all need to go, Tiffany then headed to the kids’ rooms to find out what the progress was like – and luckily, three of her teenage daughters were almost ready to go and had even made their beds.

”Seriously, mom points here because you guys are so responsible.”

However, things then took a sharp turn, as it suddenly dawned upon her that her younger bunch was supposed to leave for a choir class early too.

The 12-year-old Luke, who the mom said finds a reason to not wake up every day, had also just opened his eyes.

”Good luck with your five-minute Get Ready routine.”

After having sorted out PresLee’s hair in a cute high ponytail, Tiffany had to deal with the 10-year-old DeLayNee who was in a desperate need of an outfit change.

”The problem arises every morning,” the mom said, explaining that her daughter wants to wear shorts every day.

”Today it is actually supposed to snow.

”Fast, fast, fast. C’mon, quick, quick, quick,” she was trying to get the grumpy 10-year-old swap into something more weather-appropriate.

”Mom, I’m not going to be cold,” DeLayNee was having her first tantrum whilst the mom was straightening her blonde locks.

Downstairs, the dad had already prepped a healthy breakfast for everyone, with the two-year-old Ledger in his lap not feeling too well.

She guessed it was because the family had decided to go swimming the day before when the weather was pleasantly warm.

”Maybe that wasn’t the best idea…”

Just as some were having their toasted bagels, Luke, who is 12, informed the mom he was struggling to find trousers to wear.

This turned out to be an issue because most of the pairs either did not fit or were the wrong color, as the school only allows navy, tan or khaki.

”These are all too small for you,” the mom realized whilst going through his closet.

”This is an emergency situation.

”I’m gonna call the school and be like ‘Luke couldn’t make it because we couldn’t find his pants’.

”I don’t know what we’re gonna do.”

After coming up with a plan of their dad dropping off all the children at school and then picking up Luke once he’s managed to find a pair of trousers, the family all sat down for a morning prayer.

Hollywood superagent Ari Emanuel will seal his latest deal this weekend.

Sources confirmed to Page Six that Emanuel — the hard-charging inspiration for Jeremy Piven’s Ari Gold character on the HBO hit “Entourage” — will tie the knot with designer Sarah Staudinger in a star-studded ceremony in St. Tropez, France.

Conveniently, the nuptials will coincide with the end of the nearby Cannes Film Festival.

Insiders told Page Six that guests are already headed to the wedding location for the upcoming festivities.

While the guest list currently remains under wraps, Emanuel is known to rep A-list names including Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jennifer Garner, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Christian Bale, Whoopi Goldberg, Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, Charlize Theron, Larry David and Joaquin Phoenix. He also previously represented Donald Trump in his “Apprentice” days.

On the family side, his brothers are former mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel and bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel.

Meanwhile, Staudinger’s fashion line, Staud, has celebrity fans including Kendall Jenner, Lizzo, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez and Margot Robbie.

Page Six exclusively revealed last May that Emanuel and Staudinger got engaged. They started dating in 2018, after he and his first wife, Sarah Addington, filed for divorce after 20 years of marriage. They reportedly separated in 2014, and have three kids together.

Emanuel, 61, and Staudinger, 33, broke up in 2020, then reconciled around the start of 2021. He popped the question after his company, Endeavor, debuted on the stock market, a source told us at the time.

The Brentwood, Calif., home he shared with Addington went on the market last year for $25.9 million, while he bought a 2-acre Beverly Hills estate for $27.5 million in October 2020.

A rep did not comment.

The Wrap was first to report on the Emanuel wedding.

Heat trapped by greenhouse gases reached highest level yet in 2021, scientists say

Published

on

By


Greenhouse gases emitted by human activities trapped much more heat in 2021 than they did three decades ago, according to scientists.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released an update to its Annual Greenhouse Gas Index on Monday. The index is used to provide a measurement of the amount of heating greenhouse gases are causing.

In 2021, the index reached a value of 1.49, which is 49% more than 1 value that is assigned to 1990 – the year of the Kyoto Protocol, one of the earliest binding climate change agreements signed by 192 countries. The value of 0 is assigned to the beginning of the industrial revolution in 1750.

Carbon dioxide levels

According to scientists, carbon dioxide is the most abundant of the green greenhouse gases and grew by 2.6 parts per million last year. The level has risen by 61 ppm since 1990, and accounts for 80% of the increased heat shown in the AGGI.

“CO2 is the main player because it stays in the atmosphere and oceans for thousands of years and it is by far the largest contributor to global warming,” said Pieter Tans, senior scientist at NOAA’s Global Monitoring Laboratory.

Methane sources still not clear

Methane, or CH4, is another greenhouse gas that drives climate change, but scientists are still trying to understand what is causing its increase.

Scientists said CH4 levels grew by 16.9 parts per billion in 2021 – the fastest observed increase since the early 1980s.

The nature of its increase is important to understand because it warms the earth 30 to 90 times more than an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide. However, it stays in the atmosphere a much shorter amount of time than CO2 – decades compared to millennia. 

According to scientists, the increased methane may be coming less from fossil fuels and more from wetlands, agriculture and landfills.

“We should absolutely target man-made methane emissions — especially those from fossil fuel —  because it is technologically feasible to control them,” said Xin Lan, a scientist from the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences. “If wetlands are giving off more methane because of warming and changes in global precipitation caused by rising CO2 levels, that’s something we can’t control directly, and that would be very concerning.”

Other gases being monitored

There are a total of 19 greenhouse gases that are monitored by scientists. While carbon dioxide and methane make up the bulk of these gases in the atmosphere, another one called nitrous oxide, or N2O, comes in third.

According to scientists, N2O levels are primarily the result of the use of fertilizer for agriculture.

“We can find alternative energy sources to replace fossil fuels, but cutting emissions associated with producing food is a very difficult task,” said Stephen Montzka, the GML scientist who leads the AGGI report each year.

The remaining 16 greenhouse gases make up about 4% of heat that has been trapped since 1750, according to scientists.

Two victims of Texas school shooting being treated at military hospital

Published

Two victims in Tuesday’s shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, are being treated at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, a defense official said.

“This is a reminder of the extraordinary care the military health system can provide when called upon,” said Seileen Mullen, acting assistant secretary of defense for health affairs, at a congressional hearing about the military health system.

“Our hearts go out to the victims and their families,” Mullen added.

Brooke Army Medical Center is in San Antonio, which is about 85 miles from Uvalde, where the shooting took place.

On Tuesday, an 18-year-old gunman barricaded himself inside a classroom at Robb Elementary School, and killed at least 19 children and two teachers.

Additional information wasn’t immediately available about the ages of the two victims being treated at Brooke Army Medical Center, their condition, or whether they are military connected.

“We appreciate the work you’re doing at Brooke in Texas to help us with a tragedy of tremendous proportion, watching innocent children being gunned down with assault weapons. Congress needs to act to do something on that,” said Rep. Betty McCollum, chairwoman of the defense subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee.

“Thank you for taking care of them,” McCollum added. “We know that they are in good hands.”
