The number of land crabs in Matanzas, Cuba, has dramatically increased because the pandemic has reduced traffic in the region. Since people were hunkered down at home, crabs have had their run of the place and have significantly increased in size and numbers. Now that it’s spring, millions of the critters are migrating from the forest, crossing the road, and are headed down to the bay to spawn in the sea — at least, that’s if they can make it.

New video has emerged showing Will Smith demonstrating his fake slapping skills. It was taken at a “King Richard” screening in Los Angeles in November after a young fan asked the star how he learned to pantomime hitting someone. And Smith’s slapping of Chris Rock really was the slap heard around the world, as evidenced by the reaction one Ukrainian reporter in particular had to it. TV reporter Vitaly Sediuk was slapped by Smith at a red carpet event in Moscow back in 2012 after he tried to kiss Smith on the cheeks.
The Film Academy’s board of directors is holding an emergency meeting to decide how to respond to Will Smith’s slap of Chris Rock at the Oscars. While he may be banned from next year’s ceremony, experts say it’s unlikely that his award will be revoked. Jim Carrey said he was disgusted at the standing ovation Smith got shortly after he slapped Rock. “I felt like Hollywood was spineless, en masse,” he said. Whoopi Goldberg posited that Smith’s race was part of why he wasn’t removed from the theater.
An accident on a highway in Utah could have been a lot worse. The state’s highway patrol says a trooper was performing a stop on a semi truck when his vehicle was hit by another semi truck that failed to move over to the left lane. The trooper wasn’t in his vehicle when it was struck and pushed into the stopped semi truck. He was at the passenger side door, which the agency says is the correct way to approach a stopped vehicle.
