Ellen DeGeneres Throws Her Support Behind Prince Harry And Meghan Markle In Their Legal Battle With U.K. Tabloids

Ellen DeGeneres Throws Her Support Behind Prince Harry And Meghan Markle In Their Legal Battle With U.K. Tabloids
by Brent Furdyk
Ellen DeGeneres is fully behind Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the royal couple’s recently launched lawsuit against British tabloid The Mail on Sunday.

During a recent episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, she welcomed polo player Nacho Figueras — who, like DeGeneres, is a personal friend of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“You and I feel very strongly in support of what’s happening right now to protect themselves, because I met them through you, like I said, and I learned just how much scrutiny that they’re under all the time,” she said.

Figueras agreed, describing Harry as a “wonderful man” who “cares about making the world a better place.”

He also praised the former “Suits” star. “Then he found Meghan, who is an incredible girl,” he continued. “She gave up all of the things that she had to marry this man that she loves, which is great and people think of it like, ‘Oh, how easy it is for you, girl, to go marry this guy,’ but nobody knows all the very hard things that go with that.”

He added: “To me, the most surprising thing is that media and even some people are not seeing that these are heroes. We should be treating them as heroes. These guys are taking their time to make the world a better place, and they’re all fighting for us. Instead of us praising them, and loving them, and cheering them up, we are attacking them. So, it’s a shame.”

Earlier in the week, DeGeneres sent her support to the couple on Twitter, insisting that not only is she proud to call them her friends, “I’m even more proud of them for finally saying enough is enough.”

The episode was filmed the day before a second lawsuit from Prince Harry was launched against the Sun and Daily Mail over phone hacking allegations. At the time, only the Duchess of Sussex’s lawsuit against The Mail On Sunday was public knowledge.

How to Go to a Concert if You Are a

How to Go to a Concert if You Are a Teenager
Co-authored by wikiHow Staff
Updated: March 29, 2019 | References

Going to concerts and live performances is a lot of fun, but the concert experience can be daunting or overwhelming for younger attendees. As a teen, you’ll want to prepare for the event far in advance in order to ensure that your concert experience is enjoyable. By talking to your parents and making plans to stay safe throughout the event, you’ll be sure to have a great time at the concert.

Part One of Two:
Preparing for the Event

1
Check to make sure that the concert venue is for all-ages. Some venues, particularly those that serve alcohol, will only allow entry for guests who are over 21 years old. It’s best to research the venue’s age policies online or by phone before you make plans to attend a concert.

2
Ask your parents for permission. It’s best to check in with your parents before you buy tickets to make sure you’ll be allowed to go. Have a conversation with your parents to figure out how you will travel to and from the concert, and to talk about ground rules for staying safe at the event.[1]

3
Find a friend to go with. For your safety, it’s best not to attend concerts alone.reasons. Find at least one friend to go to the concert, and plan to stick together on the day of the event. If you’re having trouble finding company, consider posting on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to see if other people in your social network are interested. [2]

4
Buy tickets. If the concert is for a popular band, figure out exactly when the tickets go on sale, and be prepared to buy them as soon as you can to guarantee the show won’t sell out. Ticketmaster.com sells tickets for bigger shows, but if you’re going to a smaller show, look online at the venue’s website for information on how to purchase tickets. Once you buy the tickets, print them and keep them in a safe place where you won’t risk losing them.[3]
Make sure you can afford the tickets before your purchase. If you can’t, ask your parents for a loan, and figure out how you can repay them through extra housework or an outside job.
Never assume you can buy tickets at the door, as you will run the risk of getting turned away.
Avoid buying tickets from online from resellers, who will likely try to scam you.
5
Research venue policies and regulations. Find the venue’s webpage to get a sense of what to expect, and to avoid any hassles the day of the concert. Figure out how early the doors will open, and whether or not you’ll be able to bring your own food/water. Be sure the venue is not 21+ so you won’t risk getting turned away at the door.
6
Coordinate transportation. Make a plan for how you will get to and from the concert venue. Ask your parents for a ride, and suggest a carpool if your friends will be going to the concert. If your parents are driving you, be sure to solidify pick up/drop off times and locations in advance of the concert. If you can’t find a ride, figure out how to travel via public transit.[4]
7
Listen to the music. If you don’t know the all of the bands who will be playing, it’s always a good idea to familiarize yourself with their music ahead of time so that you can make the most of your concert experience.[5]
Part Two of Two:
Attending the Concert
1
Pack a small bag of the essentials. Bring a charged phone, cash (at least $20-30), a water bottle, sunblock (if the concert is outdoors), earplugs, and snacks. Make sure you pack your tickets![6]
2
Eat a meal before you leave for the concert. Concerts can be exhausting, and the food sold at concert venues is often overpriced, so you’ll want to fuel up beforehand to make sure you’ll have enough energy to enjoy yourself. Be sure to drink plenty of water as well.[7]
3
Wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing. Concerts tend to get hot with crowds of people and lots of dancing, so light, loose clothes – like shorts and a t-shirt – are your best bet, and comfortable shoes are a must. If the event is outdoors, bring a hat to shade yourself from the sun, and if there’s a chance of rain, bring a rain jacket or poncho. Be prepared for rowdy crowds, so skip any dangly jewelry.[8]
4
Arrive early. Show up at least an hour in advance to guarantee you are able to get into the venue, find your seats, and get settled before the show begins. If your tickets are for standing room only, you will have a better view the earlier you arrive. If you want to be near the front for a large concert, consider showing up a few hours early.[9]
5
Take note of the exit locations. In case of emergency, you’ll want to know where you can exit as quickly as possible. If you’re with friends, choose a landmark near the exit where you can meet up in case you get separated. [10]
6
Stay hydrated. Especially if the concert is outdoors, you’ll be getting hot and sweaty, and you’ll need to drink water to curb the risk of dehydration. Bring your own water bottle, or be prepared to buy one at the event. Many outdoor venues have water refill stations for you to continue hydrating throughout the event. [11]
7
Take breaks when you need to. If you’re feeling tired from all the singing and dancing, don’t be afraid to step away from the crowd and take a rest. Find a place away from the crowd to sit down, cool off, and drink some water. You’ll enjoy the show much more if you take a break before you reach your limit.[12]
8
Exit safely. Once the concert is over, people tend to leave venue all at once. The rush can be overwhelming, and sometimes unsafe. Stick with your buddy and be careful not to fall. If big crowds are scary, consider skipping the encore and leaving the concert a few minutes before it ends.
9
Wind down after the concert. After a great concert, you’ll probably be a combination of exhilarated and exhausted. Once you get home, you’ll want to start winding down so you can get some rest. Be sure to drink some water, and consider eating a snack and/or watching some TV to help wind down.
Community Q&A
Question
How old do I have to be to go to a BTS concert?
Community Answer
BTS concerts are all ages. If you go to Ticketmaster or the venue sites, it will most likely state how old you have to be to attend.
Question
As a 12-year-old, would I be able to go to a Twenty One Pilots Concert with my 17-year-old sibling?
Captainsprinkles
Community Answer
Yes, you would probably be able to go, but some venues require you to be 18 or older. Check the venue’s website, or give them a call and ask.
Question
How old do you have to be to go to a twenty-one pilots concert?
Community Answer
It depends upon the venue. Usually, it’s 16 if you’re without an adult.
Question
My sister and I are going to a Twenty One Pilots concert in 17 days. I am nine, and my sister is 5. Will we be allowed backstage to meet the band?
Community Answer
Most likely not, because you must be 18 or over at most venues to go backstage, and you have to get special permission before the concert to go backstage.
Question
How old do I have to be to go to a Fall Out Boy concert?
Community Answer
As long as the venue is not 18+, there is no minimum age to attend a concert.
Question
My parents are allowing me to go to a twenty-one pilots concert, but they are not going. You have to be over 16 to go by yourself (I’m 12), and none of my friends are able to come. What should I do?
Masterblocky50
Community Answer
Just ask your parents to take you into the concert. During the concert they could go out to eat or have a date night. If something happens during the concert just yell for help. As a fan of TOP as well, I know that Tyler/Security is always making sure everyone’s safe and happy. When the concert is over, just call them to be picked up. If you’re a girl make sure to be extra careful.
Question
How can I convince my parents to let me go to a concert?
Community Answer
Try showing them that you’re responsible and show them how much you love the artist. If they are worried about your safety, try to make them comfortable with it in whatever way you can – e.g., by having an adult with you, having your phone with you and calling them when you’re there, etc.
Question
How old do I have to be to go to a Pierce the Veil concert?
Community Answer
It depends on the venue. Check their website, or call them and ask their policy.
Question
My friend and I are 14, and we are going to a Shawn Mendes concert with no parents, will they let us in? We already have our tickets.
Community Answer
Check the music venue’s website. Look for a FAQ, most likely there will be a question/answer about age requirements. If you can’t find the information on the website, look for a phone number and call the venue and ask.
Question
How old do you have to be to go to a Skillet concert?
Community Answer
This depends on the venue in which they are performing. If it is an all-ages venue, anyone can go. Otherwise, most venues require you to be 18 or 21 to attend.

How to Deal With Motion Sickness on Rides

How to Deal With Motion Sickness on Rides
Co-authored by Laura Marusinec, MD
Updated: September 6, 2019

Motion sickness on amusement parks rides takes the amusement right out of the experience. Our eyes, inner ears, muscles, and joints senses these motion changes and transmits the information to our brain. When the ride begins to rock, these different parts of our bodies send different information, which disorients our brains and leads to queasiness, dizziness, and in the worst situations, projectile vomit. Roller coasters aren’t the only place that this can occur, so the advice for dealing with motion sickness on rides is applicable to boats, trains, planes, and motor vehicles. In order to overcome motion sickness, you can take medication or adjust other aspects of your life that might exacerbate motion sickness, like diet and body position.

Method One of Two:
Taking Medication for Motion Sickness

1
Get some over-the-counter dramamine. Dimenhydrinate (Dramamine, but brand names vary) is an antihistamine drug that can be purchased at most grocery stores and pharmacies. These drugs block receptors in the brain associated with nausea and vomiting. You can purchase dramamine in two tablet forms — drowsy and non-drowsy. Non-drowsy is best for amusement parks. If you are taking a train or a plane long distance and can sleep, the drowsy kind will work well.
To prevent motion sickness, the first dose should be taken 30 minutes to one hour before you go to the amusement park. Adults and children older than age 12 can usually take dimenhydrinate every four to six hours as needed to prevent or treat motion sickness. Children under 12 can usually be given dimenhydrinate every six to eight hours or as needed to prevent or treat motion sickness, but talk to your child’s doctor before using medications on young children.
There are a few other similar medications used for motion sickness. check with your doctor or pharmacist on which medication may be best for you.

2
Acquire a scopolamine patch. You’ll need to see a doctor to get a prescription for this medication. Generally, this medication is saved for those who aren’t helped by dramamine. Most of the time, scopolamine is administered in a patch form.
Talk to your doctor about potential side effects of this medication, which can include drowsiness, disorientation, dry mouth, or hallucinations.[1]
People with glaucoma or certain other medical problems may not be able to use scopolamine, so make sure to tell your doctor about any medical problems you have.
3
Apply a scopolamine patch. The patch should be applied as directed on the package. Normally, it should be placed on the back of the ear, at least four hours prior to when it is actually needed. Wash behind your ear before applying. Remove the patch from the protective packaging. Place on the skin. Wash your hands thoroughly afterwards. Leave on for as long as you need it or as long as the package prescribes.[2]
4
Try some ginger supplements. Ginger (zingiber officinale) is cheap and effective. You can consume ginger raw or in lozenge/pill form. You can purchase ginger at any grocery store or pharmacy.
If you want to take raw ginger before you get on a ride, just peel it and dice it into a small cube. Picture a piece of gum and try to make your raw ginger resemble that size. Know that many find the aftertaste of ginger to be pungent and generally unpleasant. If this is you, choose the pill or lozenge form.[3]
Method Two of Two:
Riding Strategically to Avoid Motion Sickness
1
Eat something to settle your stomach. Either before you get on the ride or when you get off the ride, find somewhere to eat something that will soothe your stomach, like crackers or ginger ale. Bland food, high in carbohydrates and low in fats are best for motion sickness. Eat foods with ginger in them or breads, cereals, grains, or fruits.[4]
Spicy and acidic foods can irritate the stomach lining, making your whole system more susceptible to problems.[5]
2
Sit in the most stable part of the ride. Depending on the vehicle, this will change. Generally, the most stable part of a roller coaster is the middle. The back and front of the ride tend to whip around more than the middle. In cars, the most stable part is the front seat. On boats and planes, the most stable part is the middle again.[6]
3
Keep your head and neck straight. Since motion sickness is often caused by conflicting signals from various parts of your body, try to keep your head and neck straight at all times. By keeping your body in a straight line, you’ll keep your head from bouncing around more. On roller coasters, this is especially important if you want to avoid head and neck injuries.[7]
4
Keep your eyes on a fixed point. You are more likely to get dizzy if your eyes are swirling around in front of you. Keep your eyes on a fixed point wherever you are. If you are on a roller coaster, it helps to stare at the car in front of you or simply to close your eyes. If you are on a boat, stare at the horizon. This will reduce sea-sickness.[8]
5
Reduce your activity. Simplicity is best for motion sickness. Obviously, this doesn’t really apply to amusement park rides, where multitasking is nearly impossible. But on planes, trains, boats, or in cars, try to do less. Stop reading your book or watching a movie. Just sit back and relax to cure motion sickness.[9]
6
Apply pressure to your P6 point. The acupuncture point known as Pericardium 6 is said to relieve general nausea. It is on the inside of the wrist, a little more than an inch up the arm from the center of the wrist crease. Many travel stores sell wristbands with built in buttons that apply pressure to this point. Scientific studies have shown the effectiveness of this method on motion sickness.[10]
There is still some debate as to whether the pressure point or the act of pressing the point helps reduce nausea.[11] Either way, give it a try.
Community Q&A
Question
One of my friends was sick after the Rampage. She said she didn’t have motion sickness and was fine before. She was vomiting after. Any ideas why she was unwell?
M. Jacqueline
Community Answer
It most likely was because she ate something before the ride or because of the twists and turns. The intensity of the ride could have caused it.
Question
I am going to the fair with some friends, and every time I ride a ride or even look at a fast ride, I get dizzy and my stomach starts to turn. How do I prevent that?
M. Jacqueline
Community Answer
A way to relieve tension from your stomach is to scream instead of holding your breath. You can also ask others about their experiences or ride with friends. Don’t watch the ride while you are in line or walking past it. You can also think of something funny to get your mind off of it.
Question
What are some types of roller coasters I should avoid if I don’t want to get sick?
Community Answer
Don’t start off with the fastest or tallest roller coasters as those can sometimes cause motion sickness. Also, avoid roller coasters that have a lot of loops or quick jerks/turns.
Question
I am going to Adventure Island with my school as a trip. I suffer from motion sickness, how can I avoid vomiting?
Community Answer
Dramamine. It’s an over the counter medication for motion sickness, and I’ve found it works pretty well. There may be a non-name brand version as well, I’m not sure. As usual, read the label and follow the directions.
Question
I just got off a ride, how do I stop my nausea?
Nat8703
Community Answer
Find a nearby bench and sit down for a bit. Take a few deep breaths and congratulate yourself that you successfully rode the ride. Think about how the ride was so much fun and that it was worth it. Before you know it, your nausea will be gone.
Question
How can I prevent puking after getting off a roller-coaster?
Community Answer
Don’t be nervous and remember everything is okay. One thing that helps is closing your eyes, and squeeze the bars as tight as you want to.
Question
What do I do if I feel like the world is shaking after I ride a ride?
Community Answer
Try medication beforehand, or afterwards sit out for a bit and take some deep breaths. This also could be because of the intensity of the ride; either don’t ride it or sit in the most stable part.
Question
I heard that there’s types of food I can eat to prevent nausea and motion sickness before riding a ride. What foods are best?
Community Answer
Try ginger or crackers. If you are at an amusement park or even on the go, you can also try drinking a sports drink like Gatorade. Water can help some people, but can also make others vomit.
Question
What foods shouldn’t I eat when I get motion sickness on rides?
Community Answer
Spicy or acidic foods can cause nausea, so it is best if you avoid those foods.
Question
Can I take Dramamine if I am pregnant?
Community Answer
Yes, Dramamine is safe for expectant mothers.
