It’s THE TOP trending story and there’s no avoiding it: President Trump was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday. He’s the third president in US history to be impeached. Impeachment doesn’t mean he has been removed from office. The articles of impeachment will next go to the Senate, where they’ll hold a trial and decide whether to convict the president and remove him from office.

For more politics in your life, the top Democratic candidates will meet tonight for the sixth and final debate of the year. Begins at 7pm

Last night was the finale of The Masked Singer. The winner was: The Fox who turned out to be Wayne Brady.

A new study is predicting that almost half of adults in the United States will be obese in the next 10 years and 24.2% will be classified as severely obese. They say obesity has become more than an individual issue, but rather a social issue. Experts suggested several community changes that could be made like: improving public transportation systems, encouraging walking instead of driving and keeping schools open on weekends and during summers to allow access to gyms and swimming pools.

In another health related study, researchers have found that the saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” isn’t quite right. You should really eat TWO a day. People who did it for two months ended up with lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and slashed their heart attack risk.

If health isn’t a priority for you, but rather looking fashionable while playing video games – then Puma is here for you. Puma has released a $100 pair of shoes specifically designed for wearing while playing video games. They’re classified as “active gaming footwear” and look like high-tech, space-age ankle socks. These gaming shoes are meant to deliver “seamless comfort, support and grip so gamers can adapt to different active gaming modes and game their best.” Wearing these shoes won’t actually make you a better gamer tho.

Christopher Nolan – AKA the best movie maker of our time – has just released the first trailer for his new movie Tenet. It’s a trippy spy-inspired action drama set to premiere in July 2020. I’M VERY EXCITED.
