Jennifer Gates to host extravagant New York wedding this weekend

Published

on

The oldest of Bill and Melinda Gates’ children will say “I do” this weekend in an extravagant wedding ceremony fit for the one-percent on her sprawling horse farm in Westchester County, The Post has learned. 

Jennifer Gates, 25, will wed fellow equestrian 30-year-old Nayel Nassar at the 124-acre, $16 million North Salem farm that her billionaire parents purchased for her in 2018 shortly after her graduation from Stanford University.

For the last two weeks, workers have been toiling around the clock to construct massive, raised pavilions with floor to ceiling windows on the home’s lawn and what appears to be a large, semi-circle stage that abuts the structures, aerial images of the property show. 

“Everything is being tastefully done, even the port-a-potties are beautifully designed,” an acquaintance of the medical student told the Daily Mail

“It’s totally over-the-top. Just incredible extravagance,” an insider added.

A wide range of high-profile, wealthy A-Listers are expected to attend the outdoor nuptials and the town has been asked to close the road that goes past the property so camera shy guests can have “privacy” during the ceremony, a neighbor told the outlet. 

While the event is sure to be one to remember for the attendees and the couple, neighbors in the sleepy town have been less than pleased about the ruckus the last minute preparations have caused. 

Neighbors have reported flatbed trucks crowding the nearby roads, while work crews and fork lifts have been seen on the property.

The wedding has been in the works since Jennifer and Nassar were engaged in January 2020 during a ski trip. 

“SHE SAID YES!! 💍,” Nassar wrote on Instagram shortly after he popped the question.

“I’m feeling like the luckiest (and happiest) man in the world right about now. Jenn, you are everything I could have possibly imagined..and so much more. I can’t wait to keep growing together through this journey called life, and I simply can’t imagine mine without you anymore. Love you more than you can possibly imagine, and thank you for making every single day feel like a dream to me. Here’s to forever!”

In Jennifer’s Instagram post announcing the engagement, she wrote her betrothed is “one of a kind.” 

“Absolutely swept me off my feet this past weekend, surprising me in the most meaningful location over one of our many shared passions,” she wrote in the post alongside an image of the couple clutching each other in the snow with Jennifer’s hands around her mouth, the sparkly engagement ring glinting in the sun.

“I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing and loving together. Yes a million times over. 💍 AHHH!!!”

Last month, mom Melinda, who finalized her divorce from her tech geek husband in August and was spotted stepping off of a helicopter in the Big Apple on Monday, hosted a quaint bridal shower for her daughter at the family’s lakefront mansion in Washington State.

Images of the event posted to Instagram show Jennifer in a white maxi-dress and a light pink shawl with attendees clutching mimosas. They later enjoyed an outdoor lunch alongside pink floral arrangements spruced up with ultra-trendy pampas grass.

“So deeply grateful for all the amazing women in my life who advise, support, and uplift me. 🥂 to this new chapter!”

These fatty foods could be destroying your memory, say scientists

Published

on

Ready meals and fast food could be destroying your memory.

Scientists say highly processed foods, crisps, and deli meats containing preservatives were linked with abrupt memory loss in older brains.

Researchers warn the amygdala — the part of the brain which regulates fear — is also affected.

So a bad diet could mean some dangerous decisions.

But diets with extra omega-3 fatty acid DHA, found in fish such as salmon, could ward off problems. Rather than supplements, researchers advised improved diets.

Scientists at America’s Ohio State University Institute for Behavioural Medicine Research did tests on lab rats.

Dr. Ruth Barrientos called the results “alarming”, adding: “Consumption of a processed diet can produce significant and abrupt memory deficits.”

Biden and Lightfoot know mask rules are idiotic — so why haven’t they changed?

Published

on

It happened again because of course it happened again. The latest example of COVID hypocrisy, if you have enough hard-drive space to keep track, is a viral video of President Biden traipsing through a ritzy DC eatery with no mask, in defiance of the city’s strict rules. In Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot was photographed at a basketball game, the only bare face in a sea of muzzled fans.

This kind of thing has been so common that it is hard to stay outraged, even though we should.

But there is another, deeper question at play here. Why won’t the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention update its masking guidance as vaccinations increase, case numbers diminish and politicians, among pretty much everyone else, ignore it across the nation?

The CDC website says that “If you are fully vaccinated, to maximize protection from the Delta variant, and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public, if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.” A handy map shows the location of these areas — it’s basically the entirety of the United States. This guidance is vague, and not followed by massive swaths of the nation.

Why is it being ignored? Because much of its application is nonsensical on its face, so to speak. What possible health benefit is there for wearing a mask from door to the table then taking it off to eat and drink and talk all night? Every one of us knows that 10 seconds of following the hostess to your table is not a potential superspreader event. It’s such performative idiocy.

Meanwhile, CDC guidelines still say if you take a kid across state lines, say on vacation, you have to quarantine for 10 days. Is any parent in the country actually doing this? We should hope not, because it’s insane. Even Fauci the Merciful, who has relented and has now pronounced we can have holiday gatherings, isn’t mentioning this. Because he knows he would look like a fool.

So why do these absurd rules, that most people don’t follow anyway, and seem to be based on about as much science as Tarot cards, still exist at all? And more importantly, what metrics do we need to hit for them to go away? That’s one query the exultant and high experts will never answer. When it comes to imposing restrictions the science is strict, settled, and exact, when it comes to easing restrictions it’s all a rich tapestry of who really knows.

Enough. When mask mandates made their first appearance in the Spring of 2020 many feared we would wind up wearing them forever. Those people were mocked as alarmists. Well, it’s almost 2022, what gives? Everyone over 12 can get a vaccine that we are promised gives fantastic protection, and young kids continue to only very rarely have significant illness.

People can decide for themselves whether they want to keep wearing masks, if they are high risk or nervous. As for the rest of us, what are we waiting for? We have long passed common sense. We need some answers about how and when these rules will end. And we need them now.

Cops face questions after missing Alabama woman’s body found in police van

Published

on

A missing Alabama woman’s body has been found in an unoccupied police van — prompting questions about her death and how she could go undetected as authorities were searching for her.

Christina Nance, 29, was discovered dead in a prisoner transport van Oct. 7, five days after she was reported missing, Deputy Police Chief DeWayne McCarver said.

The vehicle was parked at a public safety complex in Huntsville.

“The officer noticed shoes next to the van and approached, discovering Ms. Nance’s body inside. Windows on the van were observed to be opened and on this type of van they popped outward,” McCarver said on Friday at a press conference, CNN reported.

No cause of death has been determined, but preliminary autopsy results didn’t indicate that there was any foul play or bodily trauma.

“The official cause of death will be ruled by the state medical examiner once additional studies, including toxicology, are complete,” police said.

Police released surveillance footage of a woman believed to be Nance wandering through the parking lot on Sept. 25, then appearing to enter the van.

But her family — who reported her missing on Oct. 2 — said they have their doubts about the footage.

“The video was not clear enough to indicate that that was our sister Christina Nance,” Nance’s sister Whitney Nance told news station WAFF.

“It was just very heartbreaking to know that we didn’t get the clarification that we really needed, that we wanted.”

Police have said it’s protocol for the vans to be kept locked.

“It is an accountability issue on our part,” McCarver said. “That should not have happened. And now we have to look at that, and we have to make sure that we have things in place so that does not happen again.”

It’s unclear how Nance went undetected in the busy police parking lot.

“Cars go by, people walk nearby the van. We just wish that she would have hollered out to someone or something, because there were plenty of … what we see as potential opportunities for this to not be a tragedy. And unfortunately, no one was able to realize she was in that van and that was the outcome,” McCarver said.
