For some, plans for where to fly, drive and stay to hopefully catch a glimpse of the last total solar eclipse in the contiguous United States until 2044 have been in place for months or even years.

Airbnb reports a 1000% surge in searches for stays along the entire path of totality over the solar eclipse weekend for check-ins on April 7, 2024.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Maria da Graça Xuxa Meneghel, known universally as Xuxa (pronounced SHOO-shah), was Brazil’s biggest television star. Generations of children spent mornings watching her play, sing and dance for hours on her wildly popular variety show. “I was a doll, a babysitter, a friend to these children,” Xuxa, 60, said in a wide-ranging interview. “A Barbie of that time.”“She came with a pink car,” she added. “I came with a pink spaceship.”Like the famous doll, Xuxa, too, is thin, blond, blue-eyed and white.

Plus, some customers are even more appreciative of us during the holiday season, and they'll leave snacks or drinks at the front door. At the end of a day, my body's a messWhen my work day ends, I'm ready for a nap. Once the holiday season ends, I'll continue working this job for at least another year, and perhaps even another holiday season.

RIO DE JANEIRO — Singer Gal Costa, an icon in the Tropicalia and Brazilian popular music movements who enjoyed a nearly six-decade career, died on Wednesday. Her death was confirmed by a press representative, who provided no further information. Their joint side project became an important counterculture reference during Brazil’s two-decade military dictatorship, inspiring a record, tour and documentary. In 2011, Costa was awarded a Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. She remained an active performer until nearly the end, having recently suspended shows to undergo a surgery on one of her nostrils.
