We understand being in front of a camera can make you freeze up, but shouldn't she be used to it by now?! On Monday, Big Fan , ABC 's new trivia show that pits celebs against fans to answer questions about themselves, featured the ALWAYS AH-Mazing Kim Kardashian West . Related: Kim, Kendall, & Kylie Get Glammed Up For Their Ocean's Eight Cameo In NYC! We loved seeing all the HIGHlarious moments of Kim completely embarrassing herself! Not only did the 36-year-old NOT know her engagement ring's carat count -- she thought it was 12 (host Andy Richter revealed it was ACTUALLY 15), but Kim's "Big Fan" Colt DID know the answer... Watch Kim drop the rock (below)! If that wasn't bad enough, the KUWTK star ended up losing to Colt 2 -7 after he answered questions regarding the name of Kim's single ( Turn It Up ) and where she had her 14 birthday ( Michael Jackson 's Neverland Ranch -- omg how do you forget that??).

Steve Wilson watched this one. Jay Rodriguez was born and schooled in Burnley and joined his local club as a ten-year-old and left for Southampton in 2012. He has not played here since and may not today, he is on the bench. Seldom any room for sentiment in team selection.

Novak Djokovic is one of the world's top tennis players, but don't expect him to excel in all versions of the game just yet. Djokovic tried out some wheelchair tennis for a charity event in Melbourne, Australia on Wednesday, playing against Australian wheelchair tennis pro and two-time gold medalist, Dylan Alcott. While the Serbian champ has no such trouble hitting balls against Alcott while standing, the tables really turned when Djokovic tried playing from a wheelchair. SEE ALSO: Tennis legend Roger Federer playing a pair of 'air bongos' is pure dorky joy "Oh my god, I have to play tennis. How do you do it?" Djokovic asked, while trying to figure out how to turn his new chair. Read more... More about Dylan Alcott , Videos , Video , Wheelchair Tennis , and Novak Djokovic

Woody Harrelson is officially joining the cast of the upcoming Star Wars standalone film centered around a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) , and Mashable got a chance to talk to the Hunger Games star soon after the casting news broke on Wednesday. Details about Harrelson's Star Wars role are scarce, but the actor confirmed rumors that he'll be playing "a mentor to Han," telling Mashable that his character is "also a bit of a criminal." Much as Obi-Wan Kenobi schooled Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force, perhaps Harrelson's character will tutor the young Han Solo in the finer points of being a smuggling scoundrel. Read more...

Bella Thorne is a big star ( Big Love, Shake It Up, The Duff, etc) who wishes she had not stopped going to a school in third grade and been home schooled since because, she says, she did not really learn anything, and finds her new role on Freeform 's new Famous in Love particularly challenging because Paige is an ordinary college student who gets her big break after auditioning for the starring role in a Hollywood blockbuster, which, Thorne says is hard when you're jaded&#8221...

I never found covering climate change to be difficult on an emotional level until two years ago. When I became a father. Suddenly, projections of temperature changes in 2050 were more real. Where I used to be able to dismiss them as time periods when I wouldn't be around anymore, or be old enough not to care so much, now, those years were a pertinent reality. Now, there's this adorable creature, full of hope, joy, and temper tantrums, who has no idea how screwed up his future might be due to decisions we're making today.

Alex Loznak is about to head into the second semester of his sophomore year at Columbia University, but he's not your typical student. He's one of 21 people, ages nine to 21, suing the federal government for failing to protect them from the damaging effects of climate change. Loznak, 19, and his fellow plaintiffs are hoping to advance their case, which is set to go to trial as early as this summer, by deposing current ExxonMobil CEO and Trump administration secretary of state nominee Rex Tillerson. SEE ALSO: Prominent climate-denying politician gets schooled by science, again According to Loznak and the legal team fighting the case, Tillerson is in the best position to speak to the "collusion" between fossil fuel companies and the government to maintain a fossil fuel-centric economy despite well-known evidence that burning fuels like coal and oil cause global warming.

For more than a year, Rep. Lamar Smith, the chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, has been hounding federal climate scientists about a landmark scientific study, published in 2015, whose results he didn't like. Now comes proof from an independent group of scientists that affirms NOAA's findings. The study , published in the journal Science , addressed a so-called pause in global warming that scientists had observed from 1998 to 2012. Up until that study, the "warming hiatus" had been a prominent talking point for those arguing that manmade global warming either didn't exist at all, or is less of a problem than most climate scientists make it out to be.

If, however, DeVos is interested in winning over--or at least not alienating--the civil rights community and progressive education reformers, she will need to send two clear signals, starting with her upcoming Senate confirmation hearing. 1. Does DeVos Advocate for All Kids? The first signal she must send is that she understands that her job is to advocate for all children, not just the 16 percent in private or public charter schools or who are home-schooled. The vast majority of children in America are educated in traditional public schools and she must devote a proportional amount of time and energy to them. 2. Does DeVos Appreciate the Federal Role? The second signal she needs to send is that she understands the historic role the federal government has played in protecting students who need protection. America has a long and sorry history of under-serving children with special needs, as well as low-income, minority and other marginalized sub-groups of kids.

Diners waste far less food when they're schooled on the harm their leftovers can inflict on the environment. But if they know the food is going to be composted instead of dumped in a landfill, the educational benefit disappears.

The novelist discusses the inspiration behind Safe From Harm, a new book starring a female personal protection officer In Depth Tuesday, January 3, 2017 - 10:47am It all began with an ad on Gumtree. I had been writing reasonably successful historical novels but had reached a point where I fancied a change. Something where the good guys could send a text for help, rather than a carrier pigeon. I mentioned this to my wife, and the next day she came in with a printout of an ad she had found online. "I think there might be something here," she said. I read the first line: "We are looking for an experienced female CPO/PPO/Driver with a knowledge of security for our clients in Westminster." I knew CPO/PPO meant Close Protection Officer/Personal Protection Officer. In other words, a bodyguard. I read on. "You will be driving a young family with three children who are all schooled in London.

He spent the rest of the fight with blood streaming down the side of his face, but he never faded. The final round, in fact, was arguably Cruzs best of the fight. Perhaps sensing the urgency of the moment, be began to pressure Garbrandt. Cruz landed a fair amount of his swarming punches, but Garbrandt weathered them. The effort turned out to be too little, too late once the official scores were read. Afterward, the two fighters appear at least momentarily able to bury the hatchet on their feud. They shared a hug and a few words, and then Garbrandt quickly turned his attention to the man who might be his first title challengerformer champion TJ Dillashaw. Earlier in the night at UFC 207, Dillashaw dismantled John Lineker in a bout between the No. 1 and No. 2 bantamweight contenders in the UFC.
