JUNE 6-12, 2018 UCW 27 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication It's good to be a millennial As finals were ramping up at the University of Utah at the end of April, one student's class project went viral: Senior Nemo Miller created a stand- alone closet, placed in the J. Willard Marriott Library, where stressed-out students could go for a good cry. KSL TV reported e Cry Closet (#cryclo- setuofu) caught on quickly; even with a suggested 10-minute limit, @Gemini tweeted, "I stayed 11 mins but feel so much better – thank you to whoever built this. Can we add a box of tissues please?" Miller filled the closet with stuffed animals and soft materials. "I think everyone just needs a safe space sometimes," she said, "even if it's in a very public place." [KSL TV, 4/25/2018] Make art great again! A French museum dedicated to the work of painter Etienne Terrus an- nounced April 27 that more than half of its collection from the 19th-century artist are forgeries. e Terrus mu- seum in Elne, where Terrus was born, gathered a group of experts to inspect the works after a visiting art historian noticed some of the paintings depict buildings that were not constructed until after Terrus' death. In all, 82 paintings were determined to be fake. BBC News reported that the town's mayor, Yves Barniol, called the situa- tion "a disaster" and apologized to mu- seum visitors. [BBC News, 4/28/2018] High on the hog On Yaji Mountain in China, hog farmers are experimenting with high- rise hog breeding facilities that house 1,000 head of sows per floor. Xu Jiajing, manager of Guangxi Yangxiang Co. Ltd., told Reuters the "hog hotels" save "energy and resources. e land area is not that much, but you can raise a lot of pigs." e buildings range from seven floors to 13, with elevators to move people and pigs, and air circula- tion and waste management systems designed to reduce the risk of spread- ing disease. [Reuters, 5/10/2018] People with issues Police in Loerrach, Germany, re- sponded May 14 to complaints about a domestic disturbance after a neighbor reported a loud confrontation that had been going on for some time. But when they arrived, they found a 22-year- old man arguing with his girlfriend's parrot, according to Metro News. e parrot had been barking like a dog, and the man became annoyed with it. No charges were filed. [Metro News, 5/15/2018] ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, this week seems like a race, but you may be losing steam. With a lot of distance still left to cover, it's time to conserve your energy and find some assistance. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, your imagination is very active lately, so much so that it may make it difficult to con- centrate on anything else. Make an effort to get work done in spite of the distractions. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, others may misinterpret your enthu- siasm for a carefree nature. However, you are actually busy getting the job done - even if you're having some fun doing it. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 It's possible you may misread someone's intentions, and it could get you in a bit of hot water, Cancer. Don't make any assumptions and apologize if you make mistakes. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, if your energy levels are waning, find a way to put some hop in your step. Take a break from work if necessary. is is a great way to recharge. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you haven't yet found your groove at work, but don't get discouraged because it will happen. Pay attention to others around you and how they act. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Even if others think you are ambivalent, you possess a clear picture of what you want and where you are heading, Libra. Don't let others' misconceptions sway you. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, if left to your own devices, you can get your work done quickly. But overcoming distractions may be difficult in the days ahead. Do your best to stay the course. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, if you are feeling high strung or nervous, you may just need to take a little time away from a situation to reorient yourself. Come back with a fresh perspective. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, don't put others off by being too serious. Learn how to let loose a little bit this week and your friends will flock to you in no time at all. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, you're normally a people person, but every once in a while you enjoy solitary time to think and avoid crowds. is could be the week for that. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Everything seems to be unfolding on schedule, Pisces. is is advantageous because you don't have to put in extra effort or sweat the details. Question: What is it with the same-old same-old ending for season finales? "NCI NCIS: New Orleans" had Pride shot at the end. When are shows go- ing to do something more creative???? (Hasn't the age of "Who Shot J.R.?" gone by?) I also wanted to cheer "Blue Bloods," which DID have a terrific up- beat ending that was refreshing. More shows should follow their lead! – Donna Matt Roush: Couldn't agree more. It's so tiresome to watch show after show putting characters in contrived peril between seasons. Now if the idea is to present an actual game-changer that will affect a series going forward, that's another story. While we're on the topic, I'd like to add "Grey's Anatomy" to the plus column, for choosing not to kill off either April or Arizona as those characters headed off to happy new (off-camera) futures. Question: How worried are you about what will happen to "Speechless" now that ABC has exiled the show to Friday? – JL Matt Roush: Trying to stay positive here, but Fridays aren't necessarily a TV graveyard for family comedies, and if "Fresh Off the Boat" and "Speech- less" can revive the old "TGIF" fran- chise with any degree of success, may- be this will be a blessing in disguise, since expectations generally aren't as high for shows airing on Friday. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. by Damian Holbrook Cheers to Jimmy Fallon for his class act. In honor of National Teacher Ap- preciation Day, "e Tonight Show" host invited more than 200 New York educators to attend his May 8 show. And since the series tapes during the day, they didn't have to worry about being out late on a school night! Cheers to "Chicago P.D." for its creepiest cop. Given how many deaths and dirty deals he's orchestrated on the job, there ought to be a law against Voight (Jason Beghe, pictured) being allowed to even look at a badge. We cannot wait for one of his own to read him his rights.
