Tour de France 2021: Fan with sign causes major crash; what does ‘allez opi-omi’ mean?

BrownieBytes Take: Typical idiot spectator trying to get a selfie with a sign causes a disaster crash on the first day. Arrest her! The stupid sign had something to do with her grandparents. Dox the idiot. Her actions wrecked a professional cyclist that has trained for years for this race and she stole that time and effort. As a former racer, nothing makes me more angry than a selfish spectator.

Jasha Sütterlin was forced to withdraw from the race due to an injury sustained in the crash, according to @LeTour.

Most riders were able to continue on after the sign incident, but Jasha Sutterlin had to leave the race because of the crash, according to NBC Sports. 

The Tour de France tweeted later that while it is happy to have spectators on hand to take in the race, it wanted fans to “respect the safety of the riders” and not to “risk everything for a photo or to get on television.”

At 73, James Patterson has sold more than 425 million copies of his 200 novels globally, making him one of the highest paid authors in the world.

Patterson had annual earnings topping more than $80 million between June 2019 to June 2020 and sold nearly 5 million in books in the U.S. during that time, according to Forbes.

In July, Patterson signed a multi-project deal with Amazon’s Audible for an undisclosed amount, with his first Audible Original, “The Coldest Case” out Thursday.

“I do not work for a living, I play for a living. I love doing it,” Patterson tells CNBC Make It.

But Patterson’s road to success didn’t happen overnight. He started writing as a side hustle and he faced a lot of rejection before getting his first book published.

National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day on March 6th offers another way to celebrate one of our favorite desserts.

National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day on March 6th offers another way to celebrate one of our favorite desserts

Cheesecake is a sweet dessert that is a mixture of soft fresh cheese, cream cheese or cottage cheese, eggs and sugar on a crust made from crushed graham crackers, crushed cookies, pastry or sponge cake. Cheesecakes can be prepared baked or unbaked and are often served topped with fruit, chocolate or whipped cream.

There are many flavors in which cheesecakes can be prepared. However, this day honors the white chocolate cheesecake.

“Now, white chocolate is not chocolate in the strictest sense. It doesn’t contact cocoa solids.”
