WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM JANUARY 12, 2022 - JANUARY 18, 2022 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Thank You, I Think? According to the Associated Press, Suyin Ting, collections manager for vertebrate paleontology at the Louisiana State University Museum of Natural Science, is retiring, so researchers in Alabama and South Carolina honored her with a unique gift: They named a prehistoric shark species after her. Carcharhinus tingae lived 40 million years ago and was identified using fossilized teeth in the museum's collection. "I am very honored to be recognized by my peers for my work," said Ting on her retirement day. The Continuing Crisis On Dec. 26, as bad weather kept Kristin Livdahl and her 10-year-old daughter inside, they looked for some fun challenges to do: "... laying down and rolling over holding a shoe on your foot," for example, Livdahl explained on Twitter. But when the child asked Amazon's Alexa for a challenge, Fox News reported, it suggested she plug a charger cord about halfway into a wall, then hold a penny against the exposed prongs. Fortunately, Livdahl was there with her and yelled, "'No, Alexa, no!' like it was a dog," she said. Later, Livdahl received an email from Amazon, apologizing for the incident and promising to follow up. Short Fuse Alvis Parrish, 54, of Jacksonville, Florida, got tired of hearing her boyfriend, William Carter, talk in early December, so she gave him "just enough" poison in his lemonade to shut him up. Then she called police "so he wouldn't die," clickorlando.com reported. When officers arrived, Parrish was on her front porch, where she was handcuffed. "Do whatever you want," she told them. "If you don't take me, I will kill him." A deputy who spoke to Carter, 61, said he was difficult to interview because he was so tired. Carter said the lemonade tasted funny, then collapsed on the floor. Parrish is facing a charge of poisoning food or water with intent to kill or injure a person. Question: While I was happy to see "CSI" return, a lot of that had to do with the callbacks to the original series and cast, most notably the es- sential ingredient of William Petersen as Gil Grissom and his interplay with Jorja Fox as Sara. But now it's being reported that when the show returns later this year, it will be without Gil (and Sara is only a maybe), so what's the point? e original "CSI" went downhill pretty fast after he left. — Carrie T. Matt Roush: True, this takes some of the juice out of the renewal, but the original "CSI" managed to carry on for another six seasons after Pe- tersen left during the ninth — with occasional guest appearances, which could be an option here as well, I suppose. We recently quoted the "CSI: Vegas" show runner Jason Tracey insisting, "ere's always a seat at the table for Gil Grissom and Sara Sidle," while pointing out that this comeback season was always intended as a close-ended story, and Petersen had only committed to appearing in these episodes. Much like Harmon's Gibbs on "NCIS," Gil's and Petersen's influence will likely continue to be felt even with his absence, but any time he appears it makes "CSI" a better, quirkier and more memorable show. at said, I enjoyed this season-long story arc and am encouraged to hear that the show won't entirely return to a case- of-the- week format upon its return.

By Damian Holbrook Cheers to Apple TV+ for not drop- ping the ball on "Snoopy Presents: For Auld Lang Syne." e first new Peanuts holiday special in a decade did right by Charlie Brown and his squad with plenty of heart and hu- mor on tap for Lucy's big New Year's Eve bash. Jeers to e Golden Globes for shading network TV. Aside from "black-ish's" deserving stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, no other broadcast shows earned nods in the embattled awards show's ma- jor categories. ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20 You are self-confident and know who you are, which helps you take charge of situations. Many people rely on you, and you feed off that accountability. TAURUS Apr 21/May 21 You may feel like you have to be a mediator between two sides, and that only adds to tension you have been feeling recently. Take a deep breath and a step back. GEMINI May 22/Jun 21 Perceptions can be misleading. Look at a confound - ing situation from another angle. A new perspective may be all you need to see things more clearly. CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22 A get-together with loved ones could do everybody some good. You may need to find the secret that can pull them everyone together, even if it's only for a day. LEO Jul 23/Aug 23 A friend of yours may be feeling like a third wheel on group outings. Consider playing matchmaker, or make plans for a get-together with just this individual. VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22 Someone may try to burst your bubble in the next few days, but you won't let it get in the way of your lively, imaginative nature. As time goes by, others will come around. LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23 e last thing you want to do lately is slow down, but you may have to do just that or special moments may pass you by. Carve out time to spend with loved ones. SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22 Someone is trying to stay on task this week but you are all about a less serious approach. Let others focus on the tasks at hand, even if you can't. SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21 Technology is designed to make processes easier, but you may find you get fouled up by devices this week. Try doing things the old fashioned way for a bit. CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20 Others may not share your sense of humor. Play to your audience and don't get too down if some jokes don't go over well. Consider toning it down for a bit. AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18 What you see in the mirror just isn't matching up to what you're thinking in your head. Look to wise friends for answers as to why this is. PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20 If you are finding difficulty finding satisfac - tion at work, it may be time to start look- ing for something new to do. Put out some feelers. 1 TUAREN WELLS Until Grace f/ Rascal Flatts 2 JEREMY CAMP When You Speak 3 FOR KING & COUNTRY Relate 4 PHIL WICKHAM House Of The Lord 5 WE ARE MESSENGERS Come What May 6 MAVERICK CITY MUSIC Promises 7 JORDAN ST.
