How Alex Singleton’s family, Eagles teammates reacted to his game-changing pick-six against 49ers

The ball came spinning towards Eagles linebacker Alex Singleton, and his heart skipped a beat. The pass from San Fransico 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens hit him directly in his hands and he started moving upfield.

Meanwhile, in his family home in Thousand Oaks, California — roughly a five-hour drive from Levi’s Stadium — Singleton’s mother, Kim, was jogging on her treadmill while watching the game. When the ball was flung in her son’s direction, her heart froze as well.

While Kim jogged “with” her son, she could hear his biggest fan, Singleton’s sister, Ashley, screaming and crying in the other room. Singleton’s dad, Steve, and younger

Mazes of maize: Get lost in a corn field this fall

(WPRI) ─ Nothing says “fall” like venturing through rows and rows of corn.

Corn mazes have become a fall favorite in Southern New England. But this year, the coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for some local farms to make their mazes safe for guests.

While several farms opted not craft their corn mazes this year, those that did had to battle extreme drought conditions.

There’s no better way to see a corn maze than from the air, so Meteorologist T.J. Del Santo flew Sky Done 12 over the mazes that decided to open this year.

Medical Experts Share Step-by-Step Instructions for How to Wear Masks Properly

From Good Housekeeping

There’s a good chance you’ve never had to worry about properly covering your nose and mouth before now — unless you’ve been a patient in a hospital, or work in medicine or construction. However, surgical face masks as well as face cloth face coverings purchased online or created at home are becoming a necessity during the novel coronavirus pandemic that has affected Americans in all 50 states.

Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are currently recommending that everyone wear face coverings in public. More than half of U.S. states, according to Axios, are mandating residents to wear a face mask when social distancing measures aren’t possible, including on public transport and inside essential businesses.

Since most of us are new to wearing face masks, we don’t always know how to wear and take care of them correctly. So Good Housekeeping assembled a panel of

Dalina Soto Is a Latinx Nutritionist Fighting for Her Community

A few weeks ago, on the morning of her daughter’s birthday, Dalina Soto woke up and told her more than 20,000 Instagram followers that she planned to enjoy the day with her family and unrepentantly eat birthday cake. Because her daughter woke her up early in a fit of excitement, Soto shared that she decided not to do her usual morning workout—and had no plans to make it up the next day.

These actions might not seem particularly groundbreaking upon first glance. But Soto isn’t just an ordinary citizen; she’s a registered dietitian with a Master’s degree in nutrition. Eating without guilt, self-examination, or shame is the foundation of her practice—which can feel like a rarity on Instagram amid the sea of posts about “clean” eating, fasting, and detoxing. Every slice of pizza, serving of white rice, or lick of whipped cream she shares on her page is in defiance
