As host of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" as well as a contributor to "NFL Sunday" and a field reporter for most major sporting events on Fox, Erin Andrews has a lot to manage. But in a conversation with NFL Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez and Fox Sports analyst at WrapWomen's Power Women Summit, she emphasized the value of not caring what other people think. "Once you stop caring, then it all falls into place. You just start doing you," said Andrews. Working in the male-dominated field of sports broadcasting necessitated a thick skin, she said, especially as social media caught on. "When all the social media stuff started and some guy in his mom's basement could make these comments about my nose or my voice, that's when stuff started to get to me a little bit," she said. But she found solace by focusing on only the opinions of those who really mattered, she said.

Living with a parrot is a big commitment. Parrots live a very long time. A parrot such as Einstein can live to be 50 or 60 years old. Many larger parrots like Macaws can live to be 100 years old. They all require a lot of care, proper nutrition, training, time and patience. Parrots need a lot of attention and lots of toys and activities to keep from being bored. Parrots are also expensive, a large cage is an investment and plenty of play perches to spend their out of cage time. Specialized veterinarian care is also required. Most of all they require your companionship and a forever home. Many people decide after the first few years of parrot ownership that the responsibility is too great and the parrots become neglected and sometimes abandoned. When that happens they are sent to parrot rescue facilities to be adopted by a new family or some spend their lives in sanctuaries. It is often said, "Having a parrot is much like raising a 2 or 3 year old child for the rest of your life!"

The San Francisco 49ers are 6-0 for the first time since 1990 and stadium attendance has been strong, but that hasn't stopped the club's front-office from seeking ways to improve the game day experience. On Monday, the NFC West team announced it would become the first in American pro sports to include food & non-alcoholic beverages as a benefit to its entire season ticket holder base. Come 2020, 49ers season ticket 'members' and their guests will have access to an inclusive (see: FREE) menu featuring many Levi Stadium's most popular concession items (think: chicken tenders, nachos and sausages). The idea for the innovative offering originated out of "thousands of pieces of fan feedback." 49ers president Al Guido said "our fan surveys, and those reflecting the entirety of the NFL, show that the food service experience is a key driver of fan satisfaction. That insight helped lead us to this new model as a way to increase value for our 'members' while providing them with the most seamless concessions experience in all of sports." The value-add won't drive up the price of a season ticket significantly, either. The price of the average seat is only expected to rise by $20 increase. Levi's Restaurants president Andy Lansing says that the 49ers are on the front-end of a trend, suggesting that the model will "redefine how [stadium operators] think about serving our fans on game day." That's a safe bet. JohnWallStreet is already aware of a collegiate athletic conference planning to roll-out similar benefits to ticket holders across all its sports and member institutions. 49ers fans who purchase seats on a single game basis or through the secondary market will continue to buy F&B on an ala carte basis.

In 2014 he began a "cannabis regimen free of pharmaceuticals."
