Dennis Rodman’s son found out about Vegas vacation on The Last Dance

The latest episodes of The Last Dance heavily focused on Dennis Rodman — one of the more unique personalities the game has ever seen — and his “48-hour vacation” to Las Vegas in the middle of the season.

Plenty of fans weren’t familiar with the story as Rodman asked head coach Phil Jackson for a vacation to blow off steam. We watched footage of Rodman approaching a motorcycle with a Miller Lite in hand and riding off onto his vacation.

The stories from that particular vacation were wild, and apparently, it all came as a surprise to Rodman’s son, Dennis “D.J.” Rodman Jr.

D.J., coming off his freshman season at Washington State, discussed the episode in an Instagram Live chat. He said that he knew about all the stories from the episode … except for the vacation. That’s a big “except” there.

The Different Types of Adventure Travel

Adventure travel is one of the fastest segments of the travel market, drawing in more and more people on a yearly basis. But what exactly is adventure travel and what can you expect out of an adventure trip? That is completely up to you, because “adventure” has a different meaning for every individual traveler.

That said, in its purest form, this type of travel generally offers some classic experiences and activities that truly help to define its style. If you’re planning on taking your first adventure travel trip, here are some of the activities you can expect to be a part of the itinerary.

Traveling on foot through remote locations has always been at the core of adventure travel. Whether that means backpacking along the Appalachian Trail, trekking to Everest Base Camp in Nepal, or simply heading out for a backcountry adventure on a local

Chicken or beef? Airline delivers in-flight meals to travel-deprived Russians

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Ural Airlines has begun delivering in-flight meals to travel-deprived Russians who miss the thrill of a catering cart rolling down the aisle because of coronavirus lockdowns.

The airline, which is delivering its in-flight meals to customers in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg, said the initiative was meant to provide people with “the taste of travel without leaving your home”.

“Everything is just like on the airplane except for the view,” it wrote on its Instagram page on Thursday.

Russia has closed its borders to foreigners and grounded international flights, except those repatriating Russians or returning foreign nationals to their country of origin.

Many Russians have been confined to their homes for weeks, going out only to buy food or medicine, take out the trash or walk their

The ‘Parks and Recreation’ Quarantine Special Was Perfect. Please, Nobody Else Do This.

Does anyone actually want TV shows and movies to tackle life under coronavirus quarantine? Parks and Recreation’s one-time reunion special proved Thursday night that there may be exactly one case when the answer to that question is yes. And this was it. 

It’s inevitable that once the world opens up again, so will the floodgates on all the attempts to encapsulate this very unusual time on screen. (How long after this until the teens of Riverdale solve a murder via Zoom?) The apathy, bordering on allergy, to the prospect of this was evident earlier this week when Netflix ordered a quarantine anthology series titled Social Distance from Orange Is the New Black’s Jenji Kohan, an announcement met with the social media equivalent of a loud groan. 

Maybe that’s because the thought of being reminded of the unnerving peculiarities of life right now once it’s all over is

How to safely commute, go shopping, and go on vacation as states reopen for business during the coronavirus pandemic

A coronavirus vaccine remains far off, but the stay-at-home orders in many states are starting to lift, if they haven’t already.

That means millions of Americans can step outside their door and go to reopened retail stores, restaurants, gyms, parks and other public venues across the country.

They’ll be finding a world that’s vastly different from the last time they visited a doctor’s office, travelled, grabbed a cup of coffee or sat at their office desk.

For example, under state laws, Georgia hairdressers need to take a customer’s temperature. Colorado’s rules will let employers fill their offices with only 50% of their workforce and retail stores in Florida can only fill up to a quarter of capacity.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say everyone — from workplaces to schools to homes — needs to come up with plans on when they should clean (which removes germs
