This is Arsenal, an inconsistent side but I seriously fancy Slavia’s chances.

Views of the Super Flower Blood Moon and Its Eclipse


Last night, sky watchers across the Pacific Rim were treated to views of the so-called super flower blood moon. “Flower moon” is the name for a full moon in May, “super” describes a full moon that occurs when the Earth and moon are closest together, and “blood” denotes the dark-red color seen during a lunar eclipse. The moon appeared about 10 percent larger than average—however, that size difference is actually so small that a casual observer would likely never notice. Photographers around the world sighted the bright moon, and those near the Pacific were able to capture images of the eclipse—the first total lunar eclipse in more than two years. Below are 18 of the most super images of the supermoon.

I'm 21 and live in a 72-square-foot (6.7 square metres!) NYC apartment that costs $1,345 per month (220 quid per week). Here's what a day in my life looks like.


I live in a 72-square-foot apartment in the West Village for $1,345 a month. Liv Hendrix for Insider
  • I live in a 72-square-foot apartment in New York City's West Village for $1,345 a month.

  • My microstudio has no real kitchen or closet, and I sleep on a futon bed that serves as my couch.

  • I love being able to live on my own after college even though some basic tasks can be difficult.

  • Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

I had dreamed of moving from my small town in Tennessee to New York City ever since I visited the Big Apple when I was 4 years old. Unfortunately, I didn't quite grasp how expensive it is to live there until I was much older.

A lot of people live with roommates or move to boroughs other than Manhattan, like Brooklyn or Queens, to save money. But I wanted to be in the center of the action and live alone.

I found my solution on the internet: a micro-studio apartment. In NYC, these spaces are often between 50 and 100 square feet and make living alone somewhat affordable.

I found my 72-square-foot apartment in the West Village for $1,345 a month. It's in my favorite part of the city, has a fire escape, and the perfect amount of space for a 21-year-old college graduate.

Here's what a day of my life is like in this tiny space:

As soon as I wake up, I turn my bed back into my couch

I sleep on a futon bed, so when I wake up, I put my pillow and comforter under the frame and turn my bed back into a couch. This is annoying to do when I first wake up, but it certainly forces me to get out of bed.

I briefly considered putting a twin-size mattress in my lofted storage area instead, but I'm not positive it can support my weight and terrified to roll off in the night.

Then I work on using my space to make fresh coffee and breakfast

My tiny space does not mean I sacrifice my coffee.

I stand on top of my fridge to reach the coffee beans and get my electric water heater and bean grinder out from under my sink, since there's no room for it on the counter.

After I make my coffee, I put all the tools and ingredients away so I have room on the counter to make breakfast.

For breakfast, I usually cook eggs on my hot plate while I make toast in my toaster-oven-air-fryer combo.

After breakfast, I have to do all of my dishes immediately, or my sink won't fit anything else.

Picking out my outfit can be challenging since my clothes are stored throughout the apartment

Picking out my outfit requires a few stops around my studio.

I keep my pajamas, underwear, bras, socks, bathing suits, and accessories in bins underneath my two-bar garment rack.

My clothes are color-coded, and all of my black and white clothes are on the rack facing the wall, so I have to dig a bit to see what's back there.

Some of my shoes and purses are displayed on the wall, which gives me extra storage and turns them into decor.

When it comes to laundry, I pay to have it washed, dried, and folded, since I don't have a washer or dryer.

My hamper is in the storage loft above my kitchen. When I need to put clothes in it, I either try throwing them in the hamper (and always miss) or climb on top of my counter so I can reach.


Living in my studio is mostly me climbing onto surfaces that are probably not meant to be climbed on. Every small task is now a bit of a challenge to complete.

I do my skin-care routine in my bathroom, but I put on my makeup in the main area so I have more space

Like with everything else I do in this apartment, my skin-care routine takes longer than it would in a larger space. My bathroom sink is super small, and I have no counter space in there, so it can be a process to wash my face.

I do my makeup in my main living area and place my products on the kitchen counter while using the mirror by my front door.


I occasionally have to peek in my bathroom to see my look in better light, but for the most part, this works well.

During the day, I can easily walk to the park and enjoy the fresh air

After this, depending on what my schedule looks like, I am usually out and about for most of the day.

When the weather is nice, I love sitting in Washington Square Park, which is so close to my apartment that it feels like my backyard. I love living near so many amazing restaurants, too.


My fire escape also has killer views of the West Village, so it's nice to pop out there sometimes.

It's challenging to make dinner and have guests over, but I make it work with a microwave and floor pillows

Preparing too many elements that have to be cooked in the same appliance can turn making dinner into a challenging and lengthy process.

I usually air-fry a vegetable and make pasta or a protein with my hot plate. Sometimes, I microwave a Trader Joe's meal, make a salad, or eat a light snack like fruit or cheese and crackers.

On some nights, I have my two friends who live downstairs over, but we mostly go to their space, which is bigger. When I do host guests, about three people can comfortably fit on my couch, and I keep two floor pillows under the futon for people to sit on the floor.

If it starts to feel crowded in my apartment, we hit the park or the streets of NYC.

Otherwise, I will usually have a virtual movie night with my best friend from back home. I don't have a TV, so I will play a movie on my computer and prop it up on the table beside my couch.

Taking a shower can be frustrating because the floor always gets wet

My entire bathroom is the shower, which is sometimes nice and sometimes the worst.

I usually end the day with a shower so my floor has time to dry overnight. If I shower in the morning, my bathroom floor is wet until midafternoon.


A perk, though, is that I can easily brush my teeth and do my skin-care routine in the shower at night. I can also use my mirror while brushing my hair in the shower.

When I play music in there, the entire room becomes an echo-y speaker, making for great shower concerts. I also have a little mat outside the bathroom so that no water gets in my apartment.

I expected to hate the shower-bathroom combo, but now I kind of love it.

The noise of the city can be annoying when I'm trying to go to sleep, so I play music or use earplugs

When it gets close to bedtime, I always plug in my air conditioner, as it is a great buffer for all the street noise. I also play some music. If the noise gets really bad, I use earplugs.

I finish my evening by taking melatonin to help me sleep, putting rain sounds on my speaker, and pulling my futon back into a bed.

Overall, I like my microstudio, and it's come with a few perks

At the end of the day, this is by no means the perfect apartment. Someday, I would love to have a living room for parties, a full fridge, a closet, more counter space, and so much more.

But the small space has its perks. I've learned what items I value enough to be a part of my space and how crucial decor can be in making an apartment feel like a home.

Plus, this apartment has allowed me to live in the center of NYC, which was a priority for me. The city is always experienced outside anyway, so I don't mind having my small and cozy place to return to.

‘Redneck Rave’ Descends Into Throat Slashing, Impalements, and Mass Arrests



A massive country music festival in Kentucky this past weekend started off on rocky footing: Police found meth, marijuana, and an open bottle of alcohol in the first vehicle they stopped at a traffic checkpoint. One of the people in the car had two active warrants out for their arrest.

“We were like, ‘Well, this doesn’t bode well for the weekend,’” Edmonson County Sheriff Shane Doyle told the Lexington Herald-Leader.

By the end of the five-day bash, dubbed the “Redneck Rave,” one man had been impaled, one woman had been strangled to the point of unconsciousness, and one throat had been slit. In all, Edmonson authorities arrested 14 people, and charged four dozen people from five states.


The event, organized by country rapper Justin Time, took place in Blue Holler Offroad Park and drew a crowd of tens of thousands, doubling the population of the unincorporated town of Ollie, which is so small it does not have a stoplight. Redneck Rave promoters bragged that they had sold more than 20,000 tickets. The lengthy getdown, advertised as the “biggest country party you’ll ever go to,” boasted a demolition derby, goldfish racing, and a full-scale football game as well as a series of concerts.

The details of the Redneck Rave’s incidents are grisly. One person slit a friend’s throat and remains at large, a 29-year-old man had allegedly strangled a woman until she passed out, one person lost the better part of a finger, and another was impaled when he drove a side-by-side over a 2-3 inch log that broke through the bottom of the recreational vehicle. Paramedics left the log inside him as they airlifted him to a hospital.

Justin Time, whose legal name is Justin Stowers, wrote on Facebook, “This was the biggest event we’ve ever done and with as many people and random things that popped up unexpectedly I feel like we all handled it very well.”


Doyle told the Herald-Leader last year’s Redneck Raves—there were two—“overwhelmed” his staff. He ordered all his deputies to work mandatory overtime this year and requested assistance from the Kentucky State Police. At least one person died at the event last year. Another Redneck Rave is scheduled for October of this year.

“There were so many intoxicated people, we just decided, ‘If dispatch sends an ambulance in, we’re sending a deputy in with them,’” said Doyle.

Six of the festival-goers face felony charges, and the sheriff’s office filed roughly 30 charges stemming from drug and alcohol violations.
