The simple act of opening a door turned into a terrifying moment for a man in Oklahoma when a snake leaped from a porch light and bit him in the face. And the entire scene was caught on a doorbell camera video.
Footage showed Jerel Heywood leave his car outside the house of his friend, Rodney Copeland, in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Sunday. When Heywood opened the door, the snake attacked.
Heywood could be heard calling out for his friend to take him to the hospital, where the medical staff later determined that the snake was not venomous.
“No stitches, thankfully, but they cleaned me up pretty good,” Heywood told CNN. “I am on antibiotics.”
Primarily for weight loss and diet, you’ll get a ton of support from your coach and the WW community.

Trying to find a personal trainer IRL can pose a lot of potential problems.
They include, but aren’t limited to: Mismatched schedules, personalities that don’t sync up, high costs, and the somewhat awkward experience of working out in public with someone focusing all of their attention on you. It’s almost enough to make you want to give up on working out altogether.
And that is precisely why people turn to things like online fitness coaching or online yoga classes.
As its name suggests, online fitness coaching programs are done almost entirely online or through an app on your phone — and oftentimes both options are available.
Online training is great because you can work out and train whenever you want and you’ll never have to worry about meeting a trainer at a time that’s inconvenient for you.
Plus, you’re often able to gauge your progress with the help of fitness trackers typically built into online training programs. By tracking your gradual progress, you can see what is and isn’t working for you, and seeing the hurdles you’ve overcome can serve as a valuable motivator as you continue to get fitter.
There are also so many amazing personal trainers across the country that you might not have met if it weren’t for online coaching services. These personal trainers can help you establish long-term fitness goals and create a personalized fitness regimen based on those goals.
Unlike any typical weight loss program you might sign up for, online fitness coaches aren’t just concerned with weight loss — although they can definitely help you focus on that if it’s your goal. Online fitness coaches show you how to improve the overall health of your body, give you guidance and support you may not have realized you needed previously, and keep you accountable when it comes to reaching your goals.
Sadly, you won’t be able to lean on any pre-made meals to help you attain your health and fitness goals, but with the right personal trainer you may not feel you need to.
We scouted out the best online fitness programs around, taking their offerings, digital tools, and customer reviews into consideration, to find the best virtual training programs.
Here are 9 of the best online fitness coaches we found to help you get motivated:
A super small time commitment, a personalized trainer, plus great food and recipe recommendations.

Bella HadidPeek-A-Boob!!!Sheer for the Win in Malibu
5/13/2019 9:38 AM PDT
Bella Hadid is a tease — to a photog’s lens — but she definitely aims to please too … artistically speaking, of course.
The supermodel was hanging out, in more ways than one, over the weekend in Malibu for a photo shoot. Obviously, she had the photographer’s full attention, but we’re willing to bet more than a few passersby on the beach stopped to get an eyeful.
More than once, Bella’s girls nearly made appearances during the shoot.
Check out the pics … there were a number of wardrobe changes including an elegant green sheer outfit — and yet another see-through piece that left almost NOTHING to the imagination.
Even when she put on a proper shirt … she was literally busting out of it.
Fact is, it’s hard to keep some good underboob down — but we salute Bella’s shirt for fighting the good fight.
MH370 went missing on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. A group of investigators called The Independent Group (IG) pinned down their search area to a patch in the south Indian Ocean, helped by the technology. According to 2015 book ‘The Plane That Wasn’t There’, Mike Exner – a member of the group – secured himself four hours on the high tech system in November 2014.
The group’s theory at the time was that the plane had run out of fuel, fell into a spiral dive and crashed into the sea.
Every time Mr Exner simulated the flight path of the plane under the assumption it had run out of fuel, MH370 would do the same thing – cementing the belief in their logic.
Aviation expert and author of ‘The Plane That Wasn’t There’ Jeff Wise said: “In early November, Mike Exner had managed to cage four hours in a top-of-the-line hyper-realistic flight simulator that one of the US Navy carriers used to train its pilots.
“Time and again he allowed the plane to run out of fuel and watched what happened.
A strange light was spotted in the background of a NASA live feed of the ISS, with some quick to point to alien activity. The orb in the background appears to be pulsating, with UFOlogists claiming it is “proof” that extraterrestrials are monitoring astronauts on board the ISS. Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring said NASA was attempting to hide the evidence.
Mr Waring wrote on the website ET Database: “The UFO seems curved on the top and sides,but flat on its bottom.
“The close up in the video shows its colour changing as it moves past the space station slowly.
“This video is over six minutes and shows some serious close ups of a UFO that NASA does not want you to see.
“This is absolute proof that aliens have a high interest in the space station and how the astronauts on board are dealing with the unique environment of space.”
Conspiracy theorists often look for signs of extraterrestrial activity in official NASA videos and live streams.
But scientists who have worked for the space agency in the past have a much simpler explanation for all of the bizarre UFO sightings reported.
According to former NASA engineer James Oberg, most UFO sightings are nothing more than “space dandruff” floating in front of cameras.
These specks of dandruff can be anything from bits of chipped paint drifting aimlessly in zero gravity, flakes of ice or ISS insulation that has broken off.
He said: “I’ve had enough experience with real spaceflight to realise that what’s being seen in many videos is nothing beyond the ‘norm’ from fully mundane phenomena occurring in unearthly settings.”
Mr Oberg argued the human brain is not wired to make sense of these tiny objects floating above Earth.
May 18 will usher in a new lunar cycle, and experts have dubbed this one the ‘Flower Moon’. May’s full Moon has several names, all of which connect it to the fact that it signifies spring, which are “flower moon”, “corn planting moon” or “milk moon” although the first is the most common. NASA said on its website: “Going by the seasons, as the second full Moon of spring, the Native American tribes of the northeastern United States called this the Flower Moon, as flowers are abundant this time of year in most of these areas.”
It will also be a Blue Moon, but despite the name, a Blue Moon is actually white but usually earns the name because it is a lunar cycle which involves two full moons in a month.
However, in this instance, it has been given the name Blue Moon as it is the third of four full moons in a single season.
NASA even states on its website that the term Blue Moon has volcanic roots.
The space agency says: “The term Blue Moon is believed to have originated in 1883 after the eruption of Krakatoa. The volcano put so much dust in the atmosphere that the Moon actually looked blue in colour.
“This was so unusual that the term ‘once in a Blue Moon’ was coined. However, Blue Moon was also used in much the same way we use the term ‘Harvest Moon’.
The Blue Moon should not be confused with a Super Moon, which is when our lunar satellite is closer than average.
On average, the moon is 238,000 miles from Earth, but during a Super Moon the can be 221,000 miles away from our planet.
This is because the Moon’s orbit is not a perfect circle and is actually slightly oval.
Boxing LegendHarold Lederman Dead at 79 …After Cancer Battle
5/11/2019 5:39 PM PDT
Legendary boxing judge and HBO’s longtime unofficial scorer Harold Lederman has died after battling with cancer.
Lederman passed away Saturday at a hospice care center in New York … according to his daughter, Julie, and confirmed by HBO. Boxing promoter and former HBO exec Lou DiBella says Harold had fighting cancer for a while — it’s unclear which type.
Just learned that my friend of 30 years, Harold Lederman, has succumbed to the cancer he fought so hard. @shotfighter26 was one of a kind & there will never be another. He loved #boxing, fighters and his family unconditionally. He lived his life on his terms. Godspeed. #RIPHarold
A fixture of professional boxing, Lederman got his start judging matches back in 1967, but stopped in 1999 — when he judged his final bout alongside his daughter. He covered more than 100 world title fights, including some legendary ones like Muhammad Ali-Ken Norton, Evander Holyfield-Dwight Muhammad Qawi, Marvin Hagler-Mustafa Hamsho and lots and lots of others.
When he became part of the HBO family in ’86, he quickly became known for breaking down his unofficial score cards … offering viewers an insight into how a judge picks apart a bout.
HBO Sports’ executive VP, Peter Nelson, issued a statement on Harold’s passing, saying … “Harold Lederman had a lifelong love affair with the sport of boxing. Over the past 50 years he was universally respected and celebrated by the many people who make the sport what it is. Harold was happiest when seated ringside, studying the action and scoring the fight.”
Harold was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2016 after storied career. He’s survived by his wife, and his two daughters.
When the next car-sized rover lands on Mars in 2020, the ultimate head of this extraterrestrial endeavor will be physicist Lori Glaze. She’s leads NASA’s Planetary Science Division.
And she’s not alone. For the first time in history, three of NASA’s four science divisions are now run by women, a milestone announced by NASA on Friday.
“I am proud to say that for the 1st time in #NASA’s history, women are in charge of 3 out of 4 #NASAScience divisions. They are inspiring the next generation of women to become leaders in space exploration as we move forward to put the 1st woman on the Moon,” NASA’s associate administrator Thomas Zurbuchen tweeted Friday.
If NASA is able to fulfill President Trump’s ambitious (and still not funded) directive that the U.S. return to the moon by 2024, NASA has committed that the first women will land on the moon.
In every instance, we hire based on excellence and merit, nothing else. These leaders are incredibly qualified in their fields.
NASA, though, is a clear leader in recognizing the leadership abilities and scientific savvy of the agency’s female researchers. What are these three women in charge of?
1. Nicola Fox, director of NASA’s Heliophysics division
Fox leads NASA’s efforts to understand the sun, a science known as heliophysics.
It’s a weighty task. NASA is in the midst of a mission that sent a heavily-armored solar probe into the sun’s outer atmosphere to gain a markedly improved idea of how our star behaves. This is critical to understanding how solar radiation — and solar storms — will impact our lives, communications, electrical grids, satellites, and astronauts in space.
“Ever since people first looked up, they’ve been looking at the bright light in the sky,” Fox said in a statement. “We are really the oldest science branch.”
2. Sandra Cauffman, acting director of NASA’s Earth Science Division
Cauffman heads what many believe to be NASA’s most critical mission: understanding our home planet.
“What we do in observing Earth as a system gives us the additional benefit of helping humans here on Earth survive hurricanes, tornadoes, pollution, fires, and help public health,” Cauffman said. “Understanding the oceans, the algae blooms — all of those things help humans right here on Earth.”
MH370 was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, China, before it mysteriously vanished on March 8, 2014. The Boeing 777 jet had 239 passengers on board when it went missing over the South China Sea.Captain Zaharie Shah last communicated with air traffic control at 1.19am during a routine handover from Malaysian to Vietnamese channels.
Analysis of radar and satellite data shows that it suddenly changed course and flew back across Malaysia before turning south of Penang and then towards the southern Indian Ocean.
However, US pilot and aviation engineer Bruce Robertson claims this was no coincidence.
He suggests the 221kgs of lithium-ion batteries in MH370’s cargo caught fire sending a cloud of deadly carbon monoxide into the cabin, forcing Mr Shah to try and save the doomed jet.
He said in 2015: “There you have it – no conspiracies, no evil intent, no fuzzy pictures.
“It was just a simple industrial accident that took a while to play out due to automation trying to save the situation.
“The wounded bird did its best to survive but it was not to be.
“Too much time and money has been wasted on a fruitless search in an area much further southwest.”
However, a report released in 2018 went out of its way to dismiss these claims.
The document, produced by The Malaysian ICAO Annex 13 Safety Investigation Team for MH370, said it was ”highly improbable”.
It reads: “There were concerns that the batteries could have produced hazardous fumes or in a worst-case scenario caused a short circuit and/or fire.”
After carrying out tests, Malaysia’s Science & Technology Research Institute for Defence was “convinced that the items tested could not be the cause in the disappearance of MH370,” the report claims.
The batteries were not registered as dangerous goods as their packaging adhered to guidelines.
They went through customs inspection and clearance before the truck was sealed and left the factory, but were not given any additional security screening before loaded onto the plane.
When they’re not aggressively eating salads or concocting inane sub-plots to fill an hour of television, the Kardashians can actually deliver some pretty juicy drama on their reality TV show 16 seasons later.
Take this cringey-in-retrospect sneak peek from Sunday night’s episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” featuring Khloe Kardashian gushing about how “proud” she is of Jordyn Woods.
Woods, of course, was accused of cheating with Kardashian’s now-ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson in February and consequently ostracized from the family.
In the clip, family and friends gather to celebrate Kylie Jenner’s makeup collaboration with Woods at an intimate gathering, where Khloe takes it upon herself to deliver a toast to her future nemesis.
After praising her sister for sharing her “blessings” with the family, i.e. money, the Good American designer turns her attention to Woods.
“Jordyn, for you to be turning 21! I’ve known you forever, and I’m so proud of you and the woman you have grown into and you’re growing into,” she says in the clip. “And to see you guys just stick together and be best friends through thick and thin, it’s such a blessing. Congratulations on everything and this’ll be a huge success!”
In a trailer for the new season, Khloe seemingly breaks down over the betrayal and screams about her “ruined” family to an unidentified person on the phone.
Woods denied having sex with Thompson, but later admitted that the two shared a kiss that she concealed from Kardashian in a sit-down interview with family friend Jada Pinkett Smith.
Kardashian then branded her a liar on social media over the interview, but later softened her stance a bit and placed the blame on Thompson, with whom she shares a 1-year-old daughter.
“What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me,” Kardashian tweeted after Woods’ interview. “Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault.”
In last week’s episode of “KUWTK,” Kardashian opened up about the toll Thompson’s infidelity has taken on their relationship.
“It’s hard to overcome cheating,” she said. “It’s hard to gain the trust back. You wonder: Will it ever be the same, will you ever really get back to where you were prior to this whole cheating scandal? So I’m really just trying to reevaluate.”
