**This makes my heart hurt. There was ANOTHER horrible school shooting yesterday.

It happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and seventeen people were killed. Parkland is in southeast Florida, about half an hour north of Fort Lauderdale.

That makes it one of the 10 deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history, and the fourth-deadliest school shooting. It’s also already the EIGHTEENTH school shooting in America in 2018. It’s February 15th.

The shooter is a 19-year-old former student at the school who was expelled for disciplinary reasons and according to the police, his social media history is, quote, “very, very disturbing.”

The shooter initially got away afterwards, maybe by blending in with other kids who were running away, but the police quickly caught him, and now he’s in custody.

 

**Starting today, Target shoppers in Houston will be able to shop online and get same day delivery! Awwww yeah! Best news!

In December, Target announced its acquisition of Shipt, which allows it to bring the same-day delivery option to about half of its stores in the early part of this year.

Target said the option will be available at the majority of its stores and in all major markets by the 2018 holiday season.

**A new study out of Purdue University in Indiana found that people are the happiest when they make between $60,000 and $75,000 a year. That lines up with what other studies have also found in the past.

But these researchers took it further, and they wanted to see how much money it took for people to feel MORE than happy . . . they looked at when people felt like they’d achieved their financial goals and they were SUCCESSFUL.

And the answer is . . . about $95,000 a year.

They found that when people made more than that, it actually made them LESS satisfied . . . because they started wanting nicer things that they really couldn’t afford and would compare themselves to richer people.

After the school underwent a massive mold remediation and cleanup last year, Joseph and United Healthcare donated new weight room equipment for the school. The new items were damaged by mold discovered on campus last summer.

**Piston’s player Blake Griffin‘s ex-girlfriend Brynn Cameron is suing him for PALIMONY . . . after he dumped her and ran off with Kendall Jenner.

Blake and Brynn were together on-and-off for eight years, and have two kids. She says they made an oral agreement in 2013 that she would quit her job to raise the kids, so he could concentrate on his basketball career.

She says she also acted as his, quote, “personal assistant, meal planner, scheduler, stylist, publicist, party planner, nurse, nutritionist, branding expert, therapist, cheerleader, basketball and fitness consultant, and more.”

They finally set a wedding date for July of last year. But a month before the wedding, he asked her to sign a prenup. She refused, because she said it contradicted their agreement.

So he bailed on the wedding and, quote, “immediately embarked on a high-profile affair with [Kendall Jenner].” Then, she claims, he stopped supporting her financially. So she wants MILLIONS from him.

 

**John Krasinski shared his thoughts on a possible reboot of The Office — and it’s safe to say he’d say yes in a heartbeat.

During an appearance on Ellen, John was asked if he’d heard the rumors that the sitcom was coming back, he responded: “I did hear that … on the internet.”

He continued to joke, “Guess who didn’t get a call? Me. What does that say? NBC is like, ‘You know who we didn’t like? Jim.’”

Ellen finally asked the question that every fan of Dunder Mifflin is wondering about a reboot: “Would you do it?

“Oh my god, are you kidding? I would love to,” he said of reprising his role of Jim Halpert. “I’d love to get that gang back together.”
