This Is How to Spot Bed Bugs in Your Hotel Room, According to Experts…

It’s no secret that there are some pretty germy spots in your hotel room. For starters, don’t even think about touching the hotel hair dryer. As for that kettle? You don’t even want to know the gross stuff that’s been in there.bed 1But in the midst of all the fuss, most germophobes forget about the pesky creatures hiding under their very own noses. Or rather, their mattresses. That’s right—bed bugs can run rampant in any hotel room, regardless of location or price. Thankfully, pest control experts Rentokil.com have created a comprehensive guide to checking your hotel room for bed bugs.

The most obvious place to find bed bugs is—you guessed it—the bed. Start by searching along the mattress seams, as well as under the mattress. The frame’s joints, crevices, and slats could provide an ideal place for bed bugs to hide, too. Similarly, bed bugs find cozy nesting places along the seams, inside the covers, and around the zips of sofas and chairs, too. Bed bugs can also hang out in rather unlikely places, including cupboards, nightstands, and luggage.bedAs you search, keep an eye out for the warning signs that you have bed bug problems. Anything from shed skin to blood smears, to small black marks, might signal a bed bug infestation. You could also see live bed bugs crawling around.AAs41tBIf you think your place has bed bugs, report it to the hotel staff immediately and request a change of rooms—but avoid getting swapped directly beside, above, or below the infested room, as it’s likely that the bed bugs could spread. And you should advise the hotel to seek professional bed bug treatment (or at least leave a review online to warn future travelers.)

A best-of-5 win over India puts Canada through to the World Group for 2018 (3 – 1)Denis-Shapovalov-3-640x360Denis Shapovalov made the most of an opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream of playing for his country this weekend at the Davis Cup.

The 18-year-old put Canada through to the World Group for 2018 after a dominating 6-3, 7-6 (1), 6-3 victory over Ramkumar Ramanathan of India in its best-of-five Davis Cup tie on Sunday on the indoor hard court at Northlands Coliseum.

“Clinching for my country is huge,” Shapovalov said. “I grew up wanting to play on the team and to help my country win this week is a huge honour. It’s honestly the best feeling.

“I’ll be back for many years to come if I am invited to play. It’s such a fun event, and I love doing it.”shapovalov-denis (1)The tie-clinching match took only two hours five minutes to complete.

Shapovalov, ranked 51st in the world, is in the midst of a tremendous run that has seen him go 18-3 since Wimbledon, including wins over Rafael Nadal at the Rogers Cup and eighth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the recent U.S. Open.

Shapovalov also recorded a win over Bhambri in the second Davis Cup singles match on Friday.Canadian Davis Cup Players all Dressed-up“This is right up there with all the rest of the things that have happened of late,” Shapovalov said. “I’m improving every day, and I still think I need to improve a lot of things. But I am playing with a lot of confidence and playing some great tennis. I felt so good on the court today.”

It was a much better Davis Cup experience than the last one for Shapovalov, who in some ways caused the necessity of the tie with India.ten-davis-cup-201709012The Richmond Hill, Ont., native slapped a loose ball in frustration and broke a bone in the eye socket of chair umpire Arnaud Gabas during the deciding match of the series against Britain in February in Ottawa, getting banished as Canada lost 3-2.

Canada’s other victory in Edmonton came in doubles play on Saturday when Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil defeated Rohan Bopanna and Purav Raja 3-1.

Not much separated the two countries coming into the tie, as Canada was ranked 16th to India’s 18th.

Canada has now advanced into the World Group for a seventh consecutive year and has won seven of its last eight home ties.

Mario Lopez reportedly assaulted at Las Vegas spa…

Mario Lopez reportedly assaulted at Las Vegas spaMario Lopez got into an altercation at a Las Vegas spa, and police had to be called. Mario, it seems, was the victim.

TMZ reported that the Extra host was working out in the Planet Hollywood Spa on Sept. 15 when he accidentally bumped into another guy while trying to leave the bathroom in the spa.

Mario supposedly apologized, saying “excuse me” to the man. The man replied, “You got a problem?” Things began to escalate but a nearby employee quickly jumped in between them.

Before the fracas, Mario has apparently left his cell phone on one of the locker room benches. At some point during the incident, he said that he simply wanted to get his phone and leave. The man, however, grabbed Mario’s phone and threw it into a wall, destroying it.

TMZ says that both hotel security and Las Vegas police arrived, but no arrests were made. The former “Saved By The Bell” star said he didn’t want to press charges either.

The hotel reportedly replaced Mario’s phone. Meanwhile, the other man is reportedly a “known troublemaker,” the report says and has been banned from the spa.Mario Lopez reportedly assaulted at Las Vegas spa 1All seemed to be fine with Mario later in the evening, as he attended Jennifer Lopez’s insanely popular show at Planet Hollywood with his wife, Courtney Lopez.

Mario is in Las Vegas for the Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady “GGG” Golovkin fight at T-Mobile Arena.

Irish Greyhound Racing Champion Tests Positive for Cocaine…

AArVNFeThe Irish Greyhound Board announced that Clonbrien Hero, an Irish greyhound dog, tested positive for traces of benzoylecgonine, which is the main metabolite of cocaine.

Clonbrien Hero had traces of the substance on three occasions between June 24 and July 22. One of the tests came after the dog won the Irish Laurels final at a race in Cork.

The dog’s trainer, Graham Holland, claims that the dog ingested cocaine accidentally.

‘If you know you are going to be tested when you win a race, you are not going to administer cocaine to a greyhound,” he told The Times. “I’ve been training greyhounds for over 30 years and now I’m accused of doping them.”

The board has decided to withhold £26,000 in prize money from the dog. It will not be allowed to compete until it can pass a test without any traces of the banned substance.

Sinead O’Connor Talks Alleged Physical and Sexual Abuse by Her Mother in Heartbreaking Interview With Dr. Phil…

Sinead O’Connor is addressing recent headlines about her mental health in a deeply personal sit-down with Dr. Phil.Sinead O'Connor Talks Alleged Physical and Sexual Abuse by Her Mother in Heartbreaking Interview With Dr. PhilThe 50-year-old singer alarmed fans last month when she posted a tearful Facebook video from a motel room in New Jersey, in which she talked about being suicidal.

The video, however, isn’t the first time O’Connor has made headlines due to speculation about her mental health.

Last May, she was found by police after being reported missing in Wilmette, Illinois, and in November 2015, she posted a Facebook message claiming she overdosed.

In a preview of Dr. Phil’s interview with O’Connor, airing Sept. 12, the controversial singer talks about her struggles. O’Connor claims she was both physically and sexually abused by her late mother, Marie O’Connor, who died in a car crash when she was 19.

“She ran a torture chamber,” the singer claims. “She was a person who took delight in hurting you.”

Later, O’Connor nods when Dr. Phil states that she tried to kill herself eight times in one year. 

During the emotional preview, O’Connor sings a gut-wrenching version of her 1990 hit, “Nothing Compares 2 U,” and also says she’s changing her name. 

“Sinead O’Connor is gone,” she says. “That person’s gone.”

During Dr. Phil’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, he said O’Connor actually reached out to him first.

“You’ve seen her video she’s posted on Facebook and all, from motel rooms in New Jersey,” he said.

“She really has had a difficult time, and she said, ‘Look, I’m in trouble. I need help.’ And she called. She said, ‘I want to destigmatize mental illness; I clearly have a problem… Too many musicians are dying. I want to use my life, be a teaching tool. I’m willing to sit down and talk.'”
